  • Oswaldo Arcia homers as Twins down Tribe
    Oswaldo Arcia singled and launched a solo homer in Wednesday's win over the Indians.

    Advice: Arcia's blast was a long one to right field in the sixth inning as he padded the Twins' lead to 3-1, which is what the final ended up being. While the 23-year-old has tons of raw power, it's clear with a .222/.310/.378 batting line that he has some holes in his swing still.

    Yankees placed INF/OF Kelly Johnson on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left groin.

  • Hoes homers in 12th to send HOU past OAK
    L.J. Hoes hit a go-ahead home run in the top of the twelfth inning, finishing a 1-for-5 night in style.

    Advice: Hoes hit the solo shot against Fernando Abad. He is slashing just .178/.235/.308 on the season, but it's always nice to see random heroics as we enter the dog days of summer.

  • Carter doubles twice, goes 3-for-5 vs A's
    Chris Carter went 3-for-5 with two doubles and two RBI in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the A's.

    Advice: Carter has now blown by the Mendoza Line, as he's up to a .213 average. The two RBI brought him up to 43 on the year. Carter hasn't ever been one to hit for average, but he does have nineteen home runs and a .478 slugging percentage, which tells you that he makes his hits count. Always a hot/cold slugger, Carter's on the scorching side this month, slashing .306/.352/.735 for July.

  • Duda smashes 15th homer in win over Mariners
    Lucas Duda went 2-for-4 and hit his 15th home run in Tuesday's tilt with the Mariners.

    Advice: Duda had a nice all-around game. Not only did he smack an eighth inning home run, giving him fifty RBI even on the year, he also stole his third base of the season. You shouldn't hold your breath for another steal any time soon (please don't), but speedster abilities aside, Duda's slashing .261/.357/.485. He's really putting together a nice season.

  • Revere singles three times, steals two bags
    Ben Revere singled three times in six trips to the plate and stole two bases in a 14-inning loss to the Giants on Tuesday.

    Advice: Revere was making his first start since July 18 due to ankle soreness. He still ran somewhat gingerly, but was able to raise his batting average four points, swipe two bases, and score two runs. Revere owns an average-heavy .296/.316/.352 slash line with 28 stolen bases in 31 opportunities.

  • Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) to have MRI
    Ryan Zimmerman will undergo an MRI after leaving Tuesday's game against the Rockies with a strained right hamstring.

    Advice: It's looking like Zimmerman is headed to the disabled list, but the Nationals won't know for sure until the test results come back. It would be his second trip to the DL this season, as he missed nearly two months with a fractured thumb. The Nats would go back to Anthony Rendon at third base and Danny Espinosa at second if Zimmerman is on the shelf for a while.

  • Ibanez has RBI double in win over White Sox
    Raul Ibanez went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored in a win over the White Sox on Tuesday.

    Advice: Ibanez' RBI double started the scoring in what would be a four-run sixth inning for the Royals. He had been 4-for-35 in his Royals tenure prior to Tuesday's two-hit game. With the club still holding out Wild Card aspirations and Ibanez going nowhere but down, it wouldn't be surprising to see the team make a move to replace the 42-year-old in the coming weeks.

  • Springer (knee, quad) out again on Tuesday
    George Springer (knee/quad) remained out of the Astros' lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: It's the second straight game he's missed. When asked whether he feels more pain in his knee or quad, Springer said, "I just have overall kind of discomfort." An MRI revealed no structural damage, so for now the young outfielder remains day-to-day. "You have to say to yourself 'He's not going to play within the next 15 days,'" manager Bo Porter said of a possible DL stint for Springer. "We're not at that point right now."

    Advice: It's the same ailment that caused Springer to miss a game prior to the All-Star break. While it's certainly discouraging that the injury didn't heal over the break, manager Bo Porter doesn't think Springer will need a stint on the disabled list. Consider the talented young outfielder day-to-day for the time being.
