  • Kim (hamstring) on track to join O's on Tues.
    Hyun Soo Kim (hamstring) will play one more rehab game with Double-A Bowie.

    Advice: He went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Sunday in his rehab debut, but to be fair the opposition was throwing a left-handed knuckleballer -- a difficult matchup for any hitter on short notice. Kim will try for better results Monday, but he'll remain on track to rejoin the Orioles on Tuesday no matter what goes down. The outfielder has been on the disabled list since July 19, retroactive to July 11, because of a strained right hamstring. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:02 am

  • Indians promoting Clint Frazier to Triple-A
    Indians outfield prospect Clint Frazier has been promoted to Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: Frazier earned the level bump by slashing .278/.357/.473 with 13 home runs, 25 doubles, 48 RBI, and 13 stolen bases in 88 games with Double-A Akron. The 21-year-old was drafted fifth overall in 2013 out of a high school in Georgia and has impressed at just about every turn. He was rated a top-50 prospect leading into the 2016 campaign by both MLB.com and Baseball America. Baseball Prospectus had him ranked 53rd. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:41 am

  • Indians promote Zimmer and Frazier to AAA
    Indians outfield prospect Bradley Zimmer has been promoted from Double-A Akron to Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: Fellow top outfield prospect Clint Frazier will join him on the move. Zimmer, 23, was slashing .252/.370/.472 with 14 home runs, 53 RBI, 31 stolen bases, and 57 runs scored through 92 games this season at the Double-A level. He needs to improve his overall plate discipline, but those counting stats are eye-popping to any fantasy baseball enthusiast. Zimmer was the 21st overall pick in 2014 out of the University of San Francisco. He should make his major league debut later this summer. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:37 am

  • Tyler Collins (neck) slugs pinch-hit homer
    Tyler Collins (neck) slugged a pinch-hit solo homer Sunday in the Tigers' loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Collins' solo shot in the top of the ninth inning off Chicago closer David Robertson was part of a three-homer barrage that tied the game at 4-4. But the White Sox rallied in the bottom of the frame to grab the 5-4 walkoff win. Collins had been sidelined for a couple of days due to muscle spasms in his neck. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:23 am
  • Franco (wrist) goes 1-for-2 in return Sun.
    Maikel Franco (wrist) went 1-for-2 in the Phillies' loss to the Pirates on Sunday.

    Advice: Franco was held out of the starting lineup Sunday with a bruised wrist, but he entered the game in the bottom of the fifth inning after Andres Blanco left with a fractured index finger. Franco should start at third base in Monday night's series opener at Marlins Park. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:20 am

  • Arcia goes 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Sun.
    Oswaldo Arcia (elbow) finished 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Sunday in the Rays' loss to the A's.

    Advice: Arcia made an early exit from Saturday's game after suffering a mild right elbow strain and may have still been in some discomfort for Sunday afternoon's series finale in Oakland. Arcia, 25, is batting .226/.301/.387 with six homers and 19 RBI in 52 games this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:16 am

  • Reddick (back) plays inning of right field
    Josh Reddick (back) played an inning of right field Sunday in the A's defeat of the Rays.

    Advice: That's a pretty good indication that his return to the starting lineup is imminent. Reddick has been bothered by a sore back since Saturday. It's nothing serious. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:13 am

  • LoMo (wrist) expected to return Tuesday
    Logan Morrison (wrist) is expected to return to the Rays' starting lineup on Tuesday.

    Advice: Morrison hasn't appeared in a game in a week due to wrist and forearm tendinitis. He was given a cortisone injection Thursday and it is apparently improving the situation. LoMo wanted to play Sunday versus the A's but manager Kevin Cash decided to use Monday's scheduled team off day to get the 28-year-old a bit more rest. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:10 am

  • Whitley (elbow) goes two scoreless in rehab
    Chase Whitley (elbow) threw two scoreless innings Sunday with High-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Whitley worked around a hit and a walk for another sharp rehab appearance. He struck out three batters in a scoreless frame last week in his rehab debut. The right-hander should become an option for the Rays' bullpen (or perhaps starting rotation) by the middle of August. He underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last May.

    60-Day DL
     
  • Boxberger (oblique) won't return before Fri.
    Brad Boxberger (oblique) will not be activated from the disabled list before Friday.

    Advice: Boxberger has allowed two runs in three innings on his minor league rehab assignment, and he has yet to pitch on back-to-back days. That is scheduled to happen this week, with the Rays likely hoping to see better results. Boxberger has been limited to one appearance at the major league level this season because of oblique and abdominal issues. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:03 am
    15-Day DL
     
  • Huston Street among Giants' trade targets
    According to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, Angels closer Huston Street is among the Giants' trade targets leading up to the August 1 deadline.

    Advice: He's probably more of a backup plan, as the Giants have been linked to a number of other relievers having far better seasons. Street, 32, owns a rough 5.03 ERA and 1.93 WHIP in 19 2/3 innings this year out of the Anaheim bullpen. He has missed time with oblique and hamstring injuries. The right-hander is under contract for $9 million in 2017 and carries a $10 million club option for 2018. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:00 am
  • Piscotty plates two in loss to Dodgers Sunday
    Stephen Piscotty went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI as the Cardinals fell to the Dodgers on Sunday night.

    Advice: Piscotty's two-run double off Adam Liberatore in the seventh inning pulled the Cardinals to within three runs at 9-6, but that would be as close as they would get. With the two-hit attack, Piscotty is now slashing an impressive .295/.366/.490 with 14 homers and 58 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Scott Kazmir gives up three in win on Sunday
    Scott Kazmir earned his ninth victory of the season on Sunday, allowing three runs on six hits over five innings against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Kazmir struck out three and didn't walk a batter in the ballgame. The Dodgers offense staked him to nine runs in the first two innings, so all Kazmir had to do was throw strikes and make sure the Cardinals didn't mount a major rally against him. Tommy Pham provided the big blow against him with a two-run blast in the second. He'll bring a 4.35 ERA and 1.27 WHIP into Saturday's start against the Diamondbacks. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Kenley Jansen slasms the door on Cardinals
    Kenley Jansen slammed the door on the Cardinals in the ninth inning on Sunday, working a scoreless frame to protect a three-run advantage.

    Advice: Jansen induced a ground ball from Kolten Wong, then fanned Alberto Rosario and Randal Grichuk to retire the Cardinals without issue. He has once against been one of the most dominant closers in baseball this season, compiling a 1.45 ERA and 0.69 WHIP while converting 29 saves in 34 chances. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Adrian Gonzalez paces Dodgers with grand slam
    Adrian Gonzalez blasted a grand slam in the first inning on Sunday, powering the Dodgers to a 9-6 victory over the Cardinals in St. Louis.

    Advice: The Dodgers jumped on rookie right-hander Mike Mayers right out of the gate, with a pair of singles and a walk before Gonzalez unloaded on a towering grand slam to center field. He added a pair of singles, including a run-scoring knock in the second inning, finishing the night 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and four RBI. He's now hitting .284/.360/.412 with nine homers and 51 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Logan Morrison (wrist) remains out of lineup
    Logan Morrison (wrist) remained out of the Rays' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Morrison hasn't played in a week due to a wrist issue. Rays manager Kevin Cash said recently that the injury was getting worse, although the club obviously hasn't placed LoMo on the disabled list yet. Steve Pearce is at first base Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:42 am

  • A-Gonz connects for eight homer vs. Cardinals
    Adrian Gonzalez hit his eighth home run of the season in a win over the Cardinals on Saturday.

    Advice: The homer was the solo variety, hit off Cards starter Mike Leake in the sixth inning. His power outage has been baffling, as Gonzalez has traditionally averaged 22 home runs over his big league career. The 34-year-old is hitting .280/.357/.401 with 47 RBI and 37 runs scored through 95 games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:51 pm
  • Josh Reddick scratched with back soreness
    Josh Reddick was scratched from the A's lineup on Saturday due to back soreness.

    Advice: It sounds like a day-to-day type of thing. Reddick has posted a cool .295/.374/.433 batting line in 61 games this season and will be a big trade chip for the Athletics ahead of the August 1 non-waiver deadline. There is known to be interest from the Cubs. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:19 pm

    Maikel Franco (wrist) is not in the Phillies starting lineup on Saturday.

  • Jansen blows fifth save of season
    Kenley Jansen blew his fifth save of the season Friday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: The Dodgers pulled in front in the top of the ninth inning thanks to a solo homer off the bat of the red-hot Justin Turner, but the Cardinals answered right back in the bottom of the frame with a game-tying blast from the equally-hot Jedd Gyorko. Jansen came into Friday’s action having allowed just one home run over his first 41 2/3 innings of work this season. Hey, he was probably due for an off-night. He remains one of the game’s best. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:04 pm
  • Maikel Franco leaves after getting plunked
    Maikel Franco was removed from Friday's game against the Pirates after getting plunked on the wrist by Gerrit Cole.

    Advice: He was drilled during his first at-bat in the first inning and remained in the game another two frames before being replaced. It's likely he'll head for precautionary X-rays to rule out any fractures. Expect an update on his status after the game. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:01 pm

  • Piscotty hits pinch three-run homer Thursday
    Stephen Piscotty hit a pinch-hit, three-run home run in Thursday's win over the Padres.

    Advice: Piscotty was called on to hit for Matt Adams against lefty Ryan Buchter with two on and one out in a 5-2 game, and he delivered with a blast to center field that just eluded the glove of Travis Jankowski. The homer was Piscotty's 14th of the year to go with 56 RBI and 57 runs scored. The 25-year-old is hitting .297/.370/.497 in his first full campaign. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:46 pm

  • Collins remains out of Tigers' lineup
    Tyler Collins (neck) remains out of the Tigers' lineup Thursday against the White Sox.

    Advice: Collins was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to neck spasms and required a "chiropractic adjustment." Mike Aviles will get another start in the outfield. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:57 pm
  • Kenley Jansen converts save No. 28
    Kenley Jansen allowed a hit but tossed a scoreless frame to pick up his 28th save of the season in Thursday's win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Daniel Murphy flew out after a 10-pitch battle and Bryce Harper then singled, but Jansen set the Nats down easily after that. He's blown four saves this season but remains one of the best closers in the game with a 1.30 ERA and 0.70 WHIP. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:12 pm
  • Cubs looking at A's outfielder Josh Reddick
    According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, the Cubs are "looking at" A's outfielder Josh Reddick.

    Advice: Morosi notes that Cubs president Theo Epstein drafted Reddick in Boston back in 2006. It's been a frustrating 2016 for the 29-year-old outfielder, who missed part of May and most of June with a fractured thumb, but he has been a productive hitter when healthy for going on five years and he's only owed about $3 million on his current contract. Reddick can become a free agent this winter. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:43 am

  • Bradley Zimmer sets career-high with four hits
    Indians OF prospect Bradley Zimmer slugged a career-high four hits Wednesday in a win for Double-A Akron.

    Advice: All of his hits were singles. Zimmer has done a superb job since moving to the leadoff spot. In four games batting leadoff, he's hit .438 with two RBI and a .500 slugging percentage. The 23-year-old is still striking out too much (111 whiffs in 325 at-bats) but the power (14 HR, 52 RBI) and speed (31 steals on 43 attempts) have both been there. He's also scored 54 times this season, which ties him for seventh-most in the Eastern League. Zimmer went to Cleveland with the 21st overall pick in the 2014 draft after starring at the University of San Francisco. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:26 am

  • Tyler Collins scratched with neck spasms
    Tyler Collins was scratched from the Tigers' lineup Wednesday because of neck spasms.

  • Street (hamstring) earns his eighth save
    Huston Street (hamstring) picked up his eighth save of the season Tuesday versus the Rangers.

    Advice: Street was forced from an appearance Sunday against the Orioles due to hamstring cramps, but it was obviously nothing serious. He worked around a leadoff single Tuesday, retiring the final three batters he faced to preserve the Angels' two-run lead. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:39 am
  • Reddick hits cue shot walkoff single vs HOU
    Josh Reddick hit a walk-off, opposite-field RBI single to beat the Astros in the 10th inning of Tuesday night's 4-3 victory.

    Advice: Reddick didn't exactly scald the walk-off winner against Tony Sipp, but as the old adage goes, he just needed to hit it where they ain't. In this case, the Astros employed the shift when Reddick stepped to the plate. He proceeded to hit an opposite-field grounder that would have likely been gobbled up by Carlos Correa had the shift not been on. As is, the ball just squeaked through to score Marcus Semien. For the season as a whole, Reddick is slashing .298/.378/.439 with six homers and 23 RBI over 205 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:18 pm

  • Kazmir goes seven strong in win over Nats
    Scott Kazmir allowed a solitary run over seven innings of work in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

    Advice: On a day when the Dodgers had to shut down ace Clayton Kershaw due to lingering back discomfort, Kazmir offered some solace with his longest outing since May 14. The southpaw scattered four hits without issuing a walk, striking out eight Nationals in the victory. Kazmir improved to 8-3 with the win and will take a 4.30 ERA and 1.27 WHIP into Sunday night's start against the Cardinals. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:21 pm
  • Boxberger (oblique) set for rehab game
    Brad Boxberger (oblique) will make another rehab appearance Thursday with High-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Boxberger allowed a solo home run in his rehab debut Monday with Charlotte, but he retried the other three batters he faced and Rays manager Kevin Cash offered a good report on the right-hander Tuesday evening. Boxberger has made just one appearance at the major league level this season due to abdominal and oblique injuries, so the Rays are probably going to ease him back. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:41 pm

  • Chase Whitley (elbow) beginning rehab
    Chase Whitley (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Charlotte on Monday.

    Advice: It's obviously big news for Whitley as he works his way back from Tommy John surgery. He figures to be a starting or relief option for the Rays next month. Rotoworld.com Jul 17, 7:26 am
    60-Day DL
     
  • Brad Boxberger (oblique) set for rehab games
    Brad Boxberger (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment at High-A Charlotte on Monday.

    Advice: It's unclear how many rehab appearances Boxberger will need before being activated. He's been limited to just one game this season due to abdominal and oblique injuries and has seen Alex Colome take hold of the Rays' closer job in his absence. Rotoworld.com Jul 17, 7:25 am

  • Piscotty gets two hits and two RBI
    Stephen Piscotty went 2-for-3 with two RBI and a run scored in a win over the Marlins on Saturday.

  • Hyun Soo Kim (hamstring) to run on Sunday
    Hyun Soo Kim (hamstring) will attempt to run on Sunday.

    Advice: Kim's last workout on Thursday did not go well and this could be his last chance to prove he's healthy before being placed on the disabled list. Nolan Reimold and Joey Rickard have split time in left field during Kim's absence. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 2:31 pm

  • Hyun Soo Kim (hamstring) still not playing

  • Josh Reddick homers, scores four runs
    Josh Reddick reached four times, homered and scored four runs Friday in Oakland's 8-7 edging of Toronto.

    Advice: Reddick usually comes to the plate with two out and none on, so he's not often in a position to score (or drive in) runs. He had some fun tonight, though. It's the second time in his career that he's scored four runs in a game. He's just the second Athletic in the last two seasons to score four times; Coco Crisp did it on June 25.
