  • Alexei Ramirez leaves game with injury
    Alexei Ramirez left Saturday's game versus the Indians due to an apparent injury.

  • Vidal Nuno to start for Diamondbacks Sunday
    Vidal Nuno will start for the Diamondbacks on Sunday in place of Chase Anderson.

    Advice: Anderson is being skipped due to the fact that the Diamondbacks want to keep his innings down this season. Nuno hurled seven shutout innings against the Marlins in his D'Backs debut earlier in the week, and is worth a look in deeper mixed and NL-only formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Hanigan (side) not in Rays lineup on Saturday
    Ryan Hanigan (side) is not in the Rays lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: He was scratched from Friday's lineup due to soreness in his left side. Manager Joe Maddon admitted that the team isn't sure if it is an oblique issue or not, and that he's only available in an emergency on Saturday. Rotoworld.com

  • Marco Scutaro to make season debut Saturday
    Marco Scutaro has returned to the Giants starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Scutaro has missed the entire season thus far due to a recurring back injury. While he will be eased back into action, he makes for an interesting target in deeper mixed, and NL-only formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Yankees option Matt Daley back to Triple-A
    Yankees optioned RHP Matt Daley to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: Daley was sent out to make room for Jeff Francis who arrived on Saturday. Over 12 appearances with the Bombers this season, he owns a 4.85 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 9/6 K/BB ratio over 13 innings. Rotoworld.com

  • Stephen Drew not in Red Sox lineup Saturday
    Stephen Drew is not in the Red Sox starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Astros.

    Advice: Brock Holt will draw the start in his place at shortstop while Xander Bogaerts covers third base. Drew continues to struggle offensively, slashing just .135/.198/.258 with two homers and five RBI through his first 27 games. Rotoworld.com

  • Astros recall Oberholtzer to start Saturday
    Astros recalled LHP Brett Oberholtzer from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Oberholtzer will join the Astros rotation in place of the injured Collin McHugh, and will take the hill against the Red Sox on Saturday. Over 11 starts with the Astros this season, he owns a 4.66 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 48/17 K/BB ratio over 63 2/3 innings. He makes for an unappealing streaming option in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Mariners 3B prospect Peterson has 2 more hits
    Mariners 3B prospect D.J. Peterson went 2-for-4 with a double and a walk for Double-A Jackson on Friday, raising his Double-A line to .290/.333/.500.

    Advice: After a slow start, Peterson is in the midst of a seven-game hitting streak during which he has hit .367/.406/.733 with two doubles and three home runs. He has the potential to be a middle of the order slugger who hits 20-plus home runs on an annual basis since Raul Ibanez in the mid-2000s. Peterson will likely spend the rest of the season in Jackson, and should be playing for the Mariners at some point in 2015. Rotoworld.com

  • Pirates RHP prospect Glasnow fans 10
    Pirates right-handed pitching prospect Tyler Glasnow struck out 10 batters over 5 2/3 shutout innings while allowing seven hits and one walk for High-A Bradenton on Friday.

    Advice: Glasnow's ability to rack up strikeouts was on full display, but he allowed seven hits for the second consecutive start. The Pirates front office would like to see Glasnow throw more strikes and go deeper into games, though they should be happy with his holding opposing batters to a .175/.284/.242 while striking out 28.8 percent of the batters he has faced for the season.

  • Johnson gives up five runs in loss to Rox
    Kris Johnson was knocked around for five runs over just four innings in Friday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: Welcome to Coors Field. Making the start in place of the injured Ricky Nolasco, Johnson allowed eight hits in the loss, including a pair of two-run homers. The 29-year-old left-hander should stick in Minnesota's rotation for now, but he's not really a fantasy option. Rotoworld.com

  • CarGo (finger) singles in return from DL
    Carlos Gonzalez (finger) went 1-for-4 with a single and a run scored in his return from the disabled list Friday.

    Advice: He also made a pair of impressive defensive plays. Gonzalez ended up missing just over a month following surgery to remove a benign tumor from his left index finger. The 28-year-old wasn't his usual elite self prior to the procedure, so fantasy owners will have to hope that improved production is on the way now that the issue has been resolved. Rotoworld.com

  • Stubbs hits two-run homer vs. Twins
    Drew Stubbs launched a two-run homer Friday against the Twins.

    Advice: It was his 10th home run of the season. Four of them have come in his last six games. His playing time is going to take a hit now that Carlos Gonzalez is back from the disabled list, but he still figures to get regular at-bats against left-handed starters at the very least. Rotoworld.com

  • Gallardo gives up five runs in no-decision
    Yovani Gallardo yielded five runs over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Friday.

    Advice: Gallardo was handed an early 6-0 lead, but he gave up three home runs to get the Cardinals back in the ballgame. The bullpen finished the job. Gallardo struck out three and walked one in the no-decision and will finish a resurgent first half with a 3.68 ERA and 86/32 K/BB ratio over 115 innings. Rotoworld.com

  • Cardinals' Wong homers again Friday
    Kolten Wong swatted a solo homer Friday against the Brewers.

    Advice: What's gotten into this guy? Wong now has four home runs in six games since coming off the disabled list. The 23-year-old had just one over his first 233 plate appearances in the majors. Many considered Wong a sleeper coming into the season and he finally appears ready to take off. With his speed potential, he should be scooped up in most leagues with a middle infielder spot. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:33 pm
  • Lackey goes six innings in victory vs. 'Stros
    John Lackey yielded two runs over six innings in Friday's 8-3 win over the Astros.

    Advice: Lackey was shaky, allowing four hits and five walks while throwing just 67 out of 117 pitches for strikes. Still, he managed to avoid any major damage. His five walks were a season-high and his most since returning from Tommy John surgery. He struck out three batters in the victory and will finish off the first half at 10-6 with a 3.79 ERA and 109/28 K/BB ratio in 123 1/3 innings over 19 starts. Rotoworld.com

  • Giants activate Scutaro from disabled list
    Giants activated INF Marco Scutaro from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Scutaro is not in the Giants lineup on Friday, but will be available as a pinch hitter off the bench. He's worth a look as a middle infield option in deeper mixed league formats. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 5:55 pm
  • Giants to activate Scutaro from DL Saturday
    The Giants plan to activate Marco Scutaro (back) from the disabled list on Saturday.

    Advice: There was a prevailing thought that he would rejoin the team on Friday, but it looks as though he needed an extra day. Expect him to rejoin the Giants starting lineup and make his season debut on Saturday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 5:12 pm
  • Ryan Hanigan scratched with sore side
    Ryan Hanigan was scratched from Friday's lineup with soreness in his left side.

    Advice: Hanigan hasn't played since Tuesday, so it's possible he's been nursing the ailment for a few days. Jose Molina will catch Chris Archer instead. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:55 pm
  • Matt Daley recalled from Triple-A
    Yankees recalled RHP Matt Daley from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: Daley has a 4.85 ERA in 13 innings this season with the Yanks. He'll be used in the middle innings. Rotoworld.com

  • Brett Oberholtzer expected to start Saturday
    Brett Oberholtzer is expected to be recalled to start on Saturday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Collin McHugh is nursing a right fingernail avulsion and will be pushed back at least until Sunday. Oberholtzer, who was scratched from a scheduled outing Tuesday at Triple-A Oklahoma City, holds a 4.66 ERA over 11 starts with the big club this season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:02 am
  • Carlos Gonzalez activated from disabled list
    Rockies activated OF Carlos Gonzalez from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: CarGo had surgery last month to remove a benign tumor from his left index finger, but he hit .385/.467/1.077 with a couple homers during four rehab games to show he was ready. He'll be moved to right field upon his return. Gonzalez was hitting a disappointing .255/.307/.449 over 52 games before the injury but should improve upon that line with his finger no longer an issue. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:42 am
  • Kris Johnson recalled from Triple-A
    Twins recalled LHP Kris Johnson from Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: He'll make the start on Friday in Colorado. While it's obviously not an ideal setting to rejoin the rotation, Johnson should stick around as long as Ricky Nolasco (elbow) is on the shelf. He's put up a 2.75 ERA over 16 Triple-A start this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Wong productive again in loss to the Pirates
    Kolten Wong singled, was hit by a pitch, and stole a base in three plate appearances as the Cardinals were defeated by the Pirates on Thursday.

    Advice: The Cardinals just couldn't muster much of an attack against Edinson Volquez despite Wong's effort. Wong has hit safely in four of five games since returning from the disabled list and carries a .244/.305/.372 slash line overall. He has stolen 11 bases in 12 attempts as well. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 7:32 pm
  • Kolten Wong homers, walks twice
    Kolten Wong homered again Wednesday and walked twice as the Cardinals' No. 2 hitter.

    Advice: Wong has three homers in four games and four overall in 170 at-bats this season. He also stole his 10th base in 11 attempts. As long as the Cardinals don't intend to hit him eighth regularly, he seems ready to be a useful middle-infield option in mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:46 pm
  • Johnson to be promoted, will start Friday
    Kris Johnson will be promoted to start for the Twins on Friday.

    Advice: Johnson will take the rotation spot of Ricky Nolasco, who was placed on the disabled list with a right elbow issue. Johnson held the Dodgers scoreless over 4 1/3 innings in a spot start earlier this year, but the southpaw walked six in the outing. The official move and a corresponding roster move likely won't be made until Friday. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:58 pm
  • Scutaro (back) aiming for Friday activation
    The Giants are aiming to activate Marco Scutaro (back) from the disabled list on Friday.

    Advice: The tentative plan is for Scutaro to play a full nine innings with Triple-A Fresno on Thursday, with the team activating him before Friday's game if all goes well. Scutaro hasn't played a game yet this season due to chronic back problems, but he could be a big boost to the Giants in the second half. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:27 pm
  • Carlos Gonzalez to play RF upon return
    Carlos Gonzalez (finger) will be used as the Rockies' right fielder once he's activated from the disabled list on Friday.

    Advice: CarGo was the left fielder before going on the DL, but Michael Cuddyer's (shoulder) injury has opened up a spot in right. He's played over 100 games in right field during his career, so the switch shouldn't be a big deal. The Rockies will mainly use Corey Dickerson in left and Charlie Blackmon in center. Rotoworld.com

  • 'Lots of interest' in Red Sox' John Lackey
    Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that there has been "lots of interest" in John Lackey.

    Advice: The Red Sox would understandably prefer to deal Jake Peavy, as he's owed $7 million more this season and will be a free agent this winter, while Lackey is slated to earn just $500,000 in 2015 and has pitched much better than Peavy the last two seasons. The out-of-contention Red Sox will surely consider trading Lackey if they get a great offer, but it would take a lot. Rotoworld.com

  • Nuno shuts out Fish for 7 IP in Arizona debut
    In his spectacular Diamondbacks debut, Vidal Nuno tossed seven shutout innings Tuesday against the Marlins.

    Advice: He also scored Arizona's only run, coming around on Aaron Hill's fifth inning single. Acquired from the Yankees in exchange for Brandon McCarthy and cash over the weekend, Nuno dazzled the Arizona faithful in his first outing sporting Sedona red and Sonoran sand. He would have won if Addison Reed hadn't blown a save. The 26-year-old posted a 4.78 ERA across 98 innings the last two seasons for the Yankees, but we think he'll find pitching in the National League a little easier. Overall, Nuno finishes the first half 2-5 with a 4.98 ERA. Rotoworld.com

  • Wong blasts walk-off homer to down Pirates
    Kolten Wong hit a walk-off home run, the second in as many nights for the Cardinals, to defeat the Pirates 5-4 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Those sort of theatrics are expected from Matt Adams, who hit a two-run walk-off shot on Monday, but it's more surprising from Wong, who had two career home runs in 223 at-bats heading into Tuesday's game. Wong also delivered a two-run double in the game, his second two-hit effort in three games since returning from the disabled list. The second baseman scuffled to a .238/.289/.351 line in an injury-plagued first half, and he'll look for better days in the season's second stanza. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:50 pm
  • Giants optimistic about Marco Scutaro
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy indicated Tuesday that the club is optimistic Marco Scutaro (back) will have a bigger role than initially expected upon his return.

    Advice: Scutaro is feeling great during his rehab assignment to the point that Bochy thinks the second baseman could play more than the 2-4 games per week the team was initially anticipating. The veteran infielder could be activated later this week. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 5:38 pm
  • Scutaro (back) singles in rehab game
    Marco Scutaro (back) went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in a rehab game with Triple-A Fresno on Monday.

    Advice: Scutaro had his rehab assignment moved up to Triple-A after he went 2-for-12 (.167) over six games with the AZL Giants. Out all season with a chronic back problem, he could be activated soon. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 5:40 am
  • CarGo homers, doubles in first rehab game
    Carlos Gonzalez (finger) went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run and a double in his first rehab game with Triple-A Colorado Springs on Monday.

    Advice: It was his first game action since surgery last month to remove a benign tumor from his left index finger. If all goes according to plan, he'll play another couple of games in the minors before rejoining the Rockies this weekend. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 5:31 am
  • Marco Scutaro moves rehab up to Triple-A
    Marco Scutaro (back) has moved his rehab assignment up to Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Scutaro picked up two hits and two walks over 14 plate appearances with the Arizona League Giants. The second baseman thinks he's ready to return now, but the club wants him to show he can play a full game first. Scutaro should be activated soon if he can avoid a setback. Rotoworld.com
