  • Marlins activate Morris from DL
    Marlins activated RHP Bryan Morris from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: The Marlins sent down Justin Nicolino to clear a spot for him on the active roster. Morris has been sidelined since June 6 with a lower back strain. He had a 3.95 ERA and 24/12 K/BB ratio over 27 1/3 innings prior to hitting the DL.

  • Rangers option Joey Gallo to Triple-A
    Rangers optioned 3B/OF Joey Gallo to Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Gallo was sent out with Josh Hamilton (hamstring) coming back from the disabled list. The 21-year-old batted .218/.306/.448 with five home runs and a 43/11 K/BB ratio over 98 plate appearances during his first stint in the majors. He has massive long-term potential, but some more time in the minors is the best thing for him right now.

  • Padres call up Jedd Gyorko from Triple-A
    Padres recalled INF Jedd Gyorko from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: He'll replace the injured Cory Spangenberg (knee) on the active roster and figures to see at least part-time at-bats at second base. The 26-year-old was batting just .210/.282/.311 prior to his demotion earlier this month, but he was swinging the bat well during his time in Triple-A.

  • Morse tweaks back muscle on rehab stint
    Michael Morse has returned to Miami after tweaking a back muscle during his minor league rehab assignment.

    Advice: Morse was considered likely to be activated Tuesday, but that's obviously not going to happen now. No word yet on how much time he'll miss. The 33-year-old has already been sidelined since May 23 with a finger sprain.

  • Daniel Murphy (quad) activated from DL
    Mets activated INF Daniel Murphy from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Murphy, out since June 5 with a strained right quad, is expected to take over at third base while Wilmer Flores will play second and Ruben Tejada will function as the regular shortstop. The 30-year-old was batting .283/.335/.414 with four homers and 29 RBI in 55 games prior to the injury.

  • Cole leaves start with groin tightness
    A.J. Cole left his start with Triple-A Syracuse on Monday after two innings due to groin tightness.

    Advice: It's unclear if the issue will require an extended absence. Cole, 23, has made three appearances (one start) with the Nationals this season and owns a 4.40 ERA and 32/19 K/BB ratio over 47 innings in Triple-A.

  • Giants designate McGehee for assignment
    Giants designated 3B Casey McGehee for assignment.

The 32-year-old has batted just .213/.275/.299 over 49 games this season and Matt Duffy has played his way into the starting third base job. He's making a $4.8 million salary.

  • Tomas homers as D'Backs top the Dodgers
    Yasmany Tomas homered and walked in five trips to the plate Monday as the Diamondbacks took down the Dodgers.

    Advice: Tomas lined a two-run home run to left field in the sixth inning off of Yimi Garcia. It barely made it over the fence and was reviewed for fan interference, but was ultimately upheld. The power hasn't quite been there as often as the D'Backs would have liked, but Tomas has otherwise done a fine job at the plate in his first year in the majors, batting .314/.357/.440 with four home runs and 29 RBI.

  • Pederson clubs 20th homer, but Dodgers lose
    Joc Pederson went 1-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run but the Dodgers were outslugged by the Diamondbacks in Monday's loss.

    Advice: Pederson hit a tape-measure blast to right-center in the fourth inning off of Allan Webster, one of three solo shots the Dodgers hit in the frame. The rookie is up to 20 home runs on the season along with 38 RBI and a .241/.384/.529 triple-slash line.

  • Street shows Yankees the door for 22nd save
    Huston Street slammed the door on the Yankees in the ninth inning for his 22nd save as the Angels completed a 4-1 victory on Monday.

    Advice: Street got Garrett Jones and Brian McCann to fly out for two quick outs, but Didi Gregorius singled to keep hope alive. The ever-dangerous Brett Gardner hit a fly out to end the game. Street is 22-for-25 picking up saves this year with a 2.20 ERA and a 33/9 K/BB ratio in 32 2/3 innings.
    Yesterday, 10:13 pm
  • Wilson, backed by strong defense, beats NYY
    C.J. Wilson limited the Yankees to one run in six innings to pick up the win on Monday.

    Advice: Wilson scattered five hits and a three walks while striking out five. A lot of credit has to go to center fielder Mike Trout, though, as he made a handful of outstanding catches to save Wilson's hide. The lefty lowered his ERA to 3.78 with the effort and has a 1.19 WHIP with an 89/32 K/BB ratio over 102 1/3 innings. He'll face the Rangers in Texas next.
    Yesterday, 10:11 pm
  • Graveman dazzles with seven shutout innings
    Kendall Graveman silenced the Rockies with seven shutout innings, helping the Athletics to a 7-1 win on Monday.

    Advice: Graveman scattered five hits and three walks while striking out three. All five hits were singles. The right-hander has been terrific since returning from the minor leagues in late May. Over his last eight starts, Graveman has a 20.1 ERA in 53 2/3 innings. He'll look to keep it going over the weekend with a home start against the Mariners.
    Yesterday, 9:58 pm
  • Blackmon the Rockies' only source of offense
    Charlie Blackmon provided the Rockies their only run with a homer in Monday's loss to the Athletics.

    Advice: Blackmon finished 1-for-5, drilling a solo shot in the eighth inning to put the Rockies on the board. He's posting similar numbers as last season, batting .275/.349/.446 with 10 home runs and 33 RBI, but he's really turned things up in the stolen base department. Blackmon has stolen 21 bases already in less than half a season compared to 28 last year.
    Yesterday, 9:53 pm
  • Reddick homers in a win against the Rockies
    Josh Reddick went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run as the Athletics easily defeated the Rockies on Monday.

    Advice: Reddick gave the Athletics a quick 2-0 lead when he popped a two-run home run to right-center off of David Hale in the first inning. It's his 11th of the year but his first in two and a half weeks. Reddick has also knocked in 48 runs while hitting .287/.347/.474.
    Yesterday, 9:51 pm
  • Jedd Gyorko to be recalled by Padres
    Jedd Gyorko will be recalled prior to Tuesday's game versus the Mariners.

    Advice: The Padres are expected to place someone on the disabled list, with Will Middlebrooks (ankle) and Cory Spangenberg (knee) being the most likely options. Gyorko has hit .283/.368/.500 with four homers over 15 games for Triple-A El Paso after being sent down earlier this month. He could wind up seeing a decent amount of playing time, depending on what the club's corresponding move is.
    Yesterday, 8:12 pm
  • Gallo strikes out 4 times with a 3-run triple
    Joey Gallo went 1-for-5 with four strikeouts and a three-run triple as the Rangers trampled the Orioles on Monday.

    Advice: Gallo's all-or-nothing approach continues. His three-run triple came in the seventh, officially turning Monday's win into a laugher. The four strikeouts bring him up to 43 in 98 plate appearances, a 44 percent strikeout rate. Gallo owns a .218/.306/.448 batting line with five home runs and 13 RBI since debuting on June 2.

  • Bryan Morris (back) nearing return
    Bryan Morris (back) could be activated from the disabled list this week.

    Advice: Morris will make the second of back-to-back appearances with High-A Jupiter on Sunday while on his rehab assignment. It's possible that will be his final hurdle to clear before activation. "Probably after 30 pitches, we'll be able to assess where he is and make sure the quality of his strides are where they need to be," Marlins manager Dan Jennings said. "He's going back-to-back, which is good. We'll run him out there for two innings. From there, reassess it and make a decision."

  • Murphy (quad) expected to return from DL Tue.
    Daniel Murphy (quad) is expected to return from the disabled list on Tuesday.

    Advice: He'll remain on his minor league rehab assignment with High-A St. Lucie through the weekend and will join the Mets after Monday's off-day. Murphy is expected to function as the team's everyday third baseman until David Wright returns.
    Saturday, 10:11 am
  • Morse (finger) expected to rejoin Marlins
    Joe Frisaro of believes that Michael Morse will rejoin the Marlins within the next couple of days.

    Advice: With the injury to Giancarlo Stanton, the Marlins need a powerful bat in the middle of their lineup, and hope that Morse is healthy enough to provide that. He has looked good on his minor league rehab assignment and should be activated before the end of the weekend.

  • Joey Gallo starting in center field Saturday
    Joey Gallo is making his first career start in center field on Saturday.

    Advice: Gallo has been scuffling at the plate after a hot start, but the Rangers are still trying to find creative ways to get his bat in the lineup. The 21-year-old has never logged an inning in center field in his professional career, so it'll be interesting to see how the experiment works out. He'll be flanked by Ryan Rua and Shin-Soo Choo in the corners.

  • Daniel Murphy goes hitless in rehab game
    Daniel Murphy (quad) went 0-for-3 with a walk in his latest minor league rehab game with High-A St. Lucie on Thursday.

    Advice: He's expected to rejoin the Mets over the weekend, perhaps as early as Friday. Murphy will play third base upon his return with the possibility that Wilmer Flores will be shifted over to second base. Before hitting the disabled list on June 5, Murphy was hitting .283/.335/.414 with four homers and 29 RBI in 55 games.
    Thursday, 5:52 pm
  • Reddick's 3 RBI day leads A's past Rangers
    Josh Reddick went 2-for-3 with three runs batted in as the Athletics defeated the Rangers on Thursday.

    Advice: Reddick brought in the game-tying run in the sixth inning with a sacrifice fly to make it 3-3, then added insurance with a two-run single in the seventh to make it 6-3. He entered the day batting a meager .162 (6-for-37) in his last eight games, but he still has a productive .292/.353/.478 batting line with 10 home runs and 45 RBI.
    Thursday, 2:37 pm
  • Pederson getting day off Thursday vs. Cubs
    Joc Pederson is getting a day of rest in Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Cubs.

    Advice: Enrique Hernandez will start in center field and bat leadoff against Chicago left-hander Jon Lester.
    Thursday, 8:44 am
  • Yasmany Tomas goes 4-for-5 in victory
    Yasmany Tomas had a career-high four hits in five at-bats Wednesday as the Diamondbacks came back to beat the Rockies 8-7.

    Advice: Tomas singled in a run as part of the three-run rally in the ninth. He also had a double earlier in the game. Just when it looked like his average was finally starting to tumble some, he's back up to .328 now. That's even though he's sporting a 43/9 K/BB ratio in 189 at-bats.
    Wednesday, 10:32 pm
  • Kendall Graveman goes seven strong in win
    Kendall Graveman pitched seven innings of two-run ball in a victory over the Rangers on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's the fourth straight outing in which Graveman has pitched at least seven innings and allowed no more than two runs. However, it's the first of the bunch that's resulted in a win. He's 3-2 with a 2.31 ERA in seven starts since being recalled in May.
    Wednesday, 8:19 pm
  • Tomas (illness) back in D'Backs lineup Wed.
    Yasmany Tomas (illness) is back in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup Wednesday night in Denver.

    Advice: Tomas had to be scratched from Arizona's lineup Tuesday due to altitude sickness. He's obviously better-acclimated now. The 24-year-old Cuban has hit .315/.351/.429 with three home runs and 25 RBI through his first 53 games at the major league level.
    Wednesday, 1:50 pm
  • Michael Morse (finger) nearing return
    Michael Morse (finger) could be activated at some point during the Marlins' homestand, which runs through June 30.

    Advice: Morse has batted .286/.375/.476 with one homer over six rehab games as he works his way back from a a sprained right finger. He was hitting just .211/.268/.289 before the injury, but with Justin Bour falling back to earth Morse should start getting the lion's share of playing time at first base again.

  • C.J. Wilson struggles versus Astros
    C.J. Wilson was roughed up by the Astros on Tuesday, surrendering seven runs in 3 1/3 innings.

    Advice: A rare off night for Wilson this season. Not only were the seven earned runs a season high, but he had pitched at least five innings in each of his previous 14 starts. He dropped to 5-6 with a 3.92 ERA.
    Tuesday, 10:33 pm
  • Yasmany Tomas scratched due to illness
    Yasmany Tomas was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to illness.

    Advice: Tomas is having a little trouble with altitude sickness in Denver. It's a bummer for Tomas' fantasy owners, as they were surely looking forward to a matchup against Kyle Kendrick at Coors Field. Danny Dorn has taken his spot in right field.
    Tuesday, 3:56 pm
  • Pederson homers, but Dodgers fall to the Cubs
    Joc Pederson went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run, but the Dodgers weren't able to surpass the Cubs in Monday's game.

    Advice: Pederson ripped a solo home run to center field at Wrigley Field against Jason Motte, bringing the Dodgers to within two runs, but it was ultimately too little, too late. Pederson has homered twice in his last three games after ending a 14-game homerless drought. He has 19 on the year along with 36 RBI and a .252/.393/.551 batting line.
    Monday, 8:20 pm
  • Murphy (quad) won't return until next weekend
    Daniel Murphy (quad) won't be activated from the disabled list until next weekend.

    Advice: The Mets had been pegging Tuesday as Murphy's return date. He hasn't had a setback with his strained left quad, but rather the club has just decided to proceed a bit more cautiously. He could play a couple rehab games before returning.
    Jun 21, 12:54 pm
  • Yasmany Tomas (elbow) returns to lineup
    Yasmany Tomas (elbow) is back in the Diamondbacks' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Tomas didn't start Saturday after leaving Friday's game following a hit by pitch. He was able to pinch-hit, though, and will be fine.
    Jun 21, 11:06 am
  • Yasmany Tomas appears as pinch-hitter
    Yasmany Tomas (elbow) flied out as a pinch-hitter in Saturday's loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Tomas didn't start after being lifted from Friday's game following a hit by pitch on the elbow. He'll be fine, though, and figures to return to the lineup Sunday.
    Jun 21, 5:49 am
  • Pederson crushes 449-foot homer in loss
    Joc Pederson went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Saturday's loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Pederson also walked twice in the contest, hence the relative lack of at-bats. He acted as the front end of back-to-back home runs when he launched a 449-foot solo shot off Giants starter Tim Hudson in the first inning. Justin Turner would also homer to complete the end of that equation. Pederson is hitting .251/.391/.542 with 18 homers, 34 RBI and 37 runs scored in his first full major league season. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of that slash line is the difference between his average and on-base percentage--a clear sign of patience despite the fact that he's only 23 years old.
    Jun 20, 7:27 pm
  • Yasmany Tomas available off the bench Sat.
    Yasmany Tomas (elbow) is out of the Diamondbacks' lineup Saturday against the Padres.

    Advice: Chip Hale said Tomas could be available to pinch-hit. Danny Dorn will play right field and bat fifth. From the looks of it, Tomas should be back in the lineup on Sunday.
    Jun 20, 5:16 pm
  • Blackmon homers, drives in three vs. Brewers
    Charlie Blackmon finished 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI in Saturday's 5-1 defeat of the Brewers.

    Advice: Blackmon also had a big night Friday, going 2-for-4 with an RBI triple, a walk, and a stolen base. He hit a two-run shot in the fifth inning Saturday and added an RBI single in the seventh. Blackmon is now batting .271/.343/.442 with nine homers, 26 RBI, 17 stolen bases, and 38 home runs in 67 games this season.
    Jun 20, 3:50 pm
  • Joey Gallo not in Rangers lineup on Saturday
    Joey Gallo is not in the Rangers starting lineup for Saturday's game against the White Sox.

    Advice: It's just a day of rest for the young slugger against tough southpaw Carlos Rodon. Through his first 16 games in the big leagues, Gallo is slashing .224/.318/.500 with five homers and 10 RBI, though he has struck out 27 times in only 66 plate appearances. Ryan Rua is getting the start in left field while Adam Rosales handles the hot corner.

  • Tomas diagnosed with left elbow contusion
    Yasmany Tomas has been diagnosed with a left elbow contusion after being hit by a pitch during Friday's game against the Padres.

    Advice: He was removed from the game and sent for precautionary X-rays which came back negative. Expect Tomas to return to the D'Backs lineup at some point over the weekend.
    Jun 20, 5:20 am
  • Blackmon has two hits, RBI in loss
    Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-4 with an RBI triple, a walk, and a stolen base Friday against the Brewers.

    Advice: Many were predicting Blackmon to take a step back this season and while his struggles against lefties has pulled down his batting average, he's still providing a lot of value as Colorado's leadoff man. The 28-year-old has eight home runs, 23 RBI, 16 steals and 37 runs scored through 66 games.
