  • Miguel Cabrera (calf) set to undergo MRI
    Miguel Cabrera has been diagnosed with a left calf strain and is set to undergo an MRI exam.

    Advice: Cabrera sustained the injury while running the bases during Friday's game against the Blue Jays. The Tigers will know more on his status after the MRI, but a trip to the disabled list could be in play here. Rotoworld.com

  • Miguel Cabrera leaves game with leg injury
    Miguel Cabrera was removed from Friday's game against the Blue Jays in the fourth inning due to an apparent hamstring injury.

    Advice: Cabrera was running to second base on a 3-2 pitch to Victor Martinez when he pulled up lame. He had to be assisted off the field by the training staff and was walking with a noticeable limp. The Tigers should have an update on his status soon, but any sort of extended absence would be a deadly blow to the Tigers chances of a postseason berth. Rotoworld.com

  • Tomas knocks in a pair vs. the Rockies
    Yasmany Tomas smacked a two-run double in Thursday's win against the Rockies.

    Advice: The seventh-inning drive off of Scott Oberg plated A.J. Pollock and Paul Goldschmidt and gave the Diamondbacks a 5-1 lead in the eventual 8-1 victory. The Tomas investment looked like an early flop, but he's slashing a tasty .318/.359/.441 through 220 at-bats. If the power comes and the average doesn't suffer because of it, he's going to be a fantasy star. Rotoworld.com

  • Semien corks 7th HR in win vs. the Mariners
    Marcus Semien hit a solo homer in a 4-0 win versus Seattle on Thursday.

    Advice: Semien finished 1-for-3. His big contribution of the night was talking Roenis Elias deep in the fifth inning to give the A's a 3-0 cushion. Semien is slashing .259/.309/.402 and is on pace for 14 homers and 12 steals. Rotoworld.com

  • Carpenter reaches base four times in loss
    Matt Carpenter went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, two walks, and two runs scored Thursday against the Padres.

  • Solarte ejected from Thursday's game
    Yangervis Solarte was ejected from Thursday's game in the sixth inning for arguing a check-swing call.

    Advice: Solarte went 1-for-3 with a solo homer before home plate umpire Bob Davidson gave him the boot. His solo shot in the second inning snapped a 22-inning scoreless streak for San Diego. Rotoworld.com

  • Sano has infield single in MLB debut
    Miguel Sano went 1-for-4 with an infield single in his major league debut Thursday against the Royals.

    Advice: Sano lined out to center field in his first at-bat before striking out swinging in his next two chances. The infield single came in the top of the ninth inning. The Twins plan to use the 22-year-old as their regular designated hitter for the time being, so his power upside is well worth the flier in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Cody Asche goes deep in loss to Brewers
    Cody Asche belted his fourth home run of the season in a losing effort against the Brewers on Thursday.

    Advice: Now serving as the Phillies' primary left fielder, Asche had himself quite a night at the dish, going 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and two RBI, and he also drew a walk. For the season, he's slashing .254/.289/.362 with four long balls and 11 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Zimmerman (foot) works out again Thursday
    Ryan Zimmerman (foot) did some hitting, fielding, and light running on Thursday.

    Advice: Zimmerman has been ramping up baseball activities over the past couple of weeks, but he's waiting for the pain to dissipate before going at 100 percent. He's not close to a minor league rehab assignment yet, so his return date remains up in the air. Rotoworld.com

  • Sano batting sixth in MLB debut Thursday
    Miguel Sano will serve as the designated hitter and bat sixth in his MLB debut Thursday against the Royals.

    Advice: Sano was called up Thursday after batting .274/.374/.544 with 15 home runs and 48 RBI over 66 games this season with Double-A Chattanooga. The 22-year-old offers massive power potential from the right side of the plate. He's expected to serve as the primary DH now that Kennys Vargas has been demoted, so he's well worth a flier in most fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Herrera hits two-run homer and sacrifice fly
    Jonathan Herrera went 1-for-2 with a homer and three RBI in Thursday afternoon's win over the Mets.

    Advice: Herrera sacrificed in a run in the second inning, then took Mets starter Jacob deGrom deep for a two-run homer in the sixth to account for his three RBI on the day. It was his first long ball of the season. Over 70 at-bats, he's hitting .229/.250/.314, numbers that shouldn't put him near any fantasy radars. Rotoworld.com

  • Aviles launches go-ahead homer in 10th
    Mike Aviles hit a go-ahead solo home run in the 10th inning on Thursday, helping to propel the Indians to a 5-4 win over the Rays.

    Advice: Aviles homered off of Xavier Cedeno to lead off the 10th inning. His run would stand as the difference in the eventual 5-4 win. Across 153 at-bats, the veteran infielder has smacked four home runs and is hitting .256/.312/.365. Aviles is who he is as a player and there's no fantasy upside here. Rotoworld.com

  • Rojas triples, singles twice in win over SF
    Miguel Rojas went 3-for-4 with a triple in Thursday's win over the Giants.

    Advice: Rojas was called up in late June to act as a utility bat. The three hits he recorded on Thursday were his first three of the season. Playing for Triple-A New Orleans prior to the call-up, he hit .302/.345/.431 over 64 games. He doesn't figure to see enough significant at-bats to become fantasy relevant. Rotoworld.com

If Bloomquist decides to hang up his cleats, he'll finish his career with 778 hits in 1,055 big league appearances. Rotoworld.com

  • Twins officially promote prospect Miguel Sano
    Twins recalled INF Miguel Sano from Double-A Chattanooga.

    Advice: Sano will take over as the Twins' regular designated hitter in Thursday's series opener against the Royals. The 22-year-old was sporting a .918 OPS with 15 home runs and 48 RBI in 66 games this season at the Double-A level and he's a must-own in all standard fantasy leagues for his massive power potential.

  • Hill socks solo homer in loss to Dodgers
    Aaron Hill went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Hill connected for his fourth homer of the season when he launched a Brett Anderson offering into the seats in the sixth inning. He also chipped in with a sacrifice fly in the eighth to push his overall RBI total for the season to an even 20. Hill is a possible candidate for trade as we enter July, though his .224/.284/.333 slashline makes one wonder what, if anything, the Diamondbacks could get in return for the 33-year-old infielder.

  • Franco's 3 doubles not enough for Phillies
    Maikel Franco doubled three times, walked, and knocked in a pair of runs in five plate appearances in Wednesday's loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: Franco hit RBI doubles in the seventh and ninth innings, but the Phillies' pitching staff put the game too far out of reach for the third baseman's effort to matter. Franco hasn't slowed down since his promotion in May, batting .305/.349/.557 with 10 home runs and 34 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • David Wright (back) 'picking up activity'
    Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports David Wright (back) is "picking up activity," but there remains no timetable for his return.

    Advice: Specifically, Rubin said it's still unclear whether "picking up activity" means Wright will run or take grounders next week. Two weeks ago Mets general manager Sandy Alderson pinpointed the All-Star break as the hope for Wright's return, but the break draws ever nearer without Wright making any tangible progress. Sometime shortly after the All-Star break may be a better guess at this point. Rotoworld.com

  • Twins calling up top prospect Miguel Sano
    MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports that the Twins are calling up prospect Miguel Sano.

    Advice: Kennys Vargas has already been optioned to Triple-A Rochester to open up a roster spot. Sano, 22, boasts a .918 OPS with 15 home runs and 48 RBI in 66 games this season at the Double-A level. He's primarily played third base in the minors, but look for the Twins to use him as their everyday designated hitter. Sano has been a consensus top-20 prospect for going on four years and is worth a shot in every mixed fantasy league for his power potential. Rotoworld.com

  • Steve Tolleson activated, then DFA'd

  • Solarte prevents Padres from getting no-hit
    Yangervis Solarte gave the Padres reason to smile in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners, as his seventh-inning double prevented a no-hitter.

    Advice: Mariners starter Mike Montgomery hadn't allowed a hit with one out in the seventh inning when Solarte stepped to the plate. He saved his team from ignominy with a double, but he was ultimately stranded. Solarte had consecutive multi-hit games coming into Tuesday, but otherwise hasn't done much at the plate in 2015, batting .247/.299/.344 with two home runs and 28 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Nunez' three-hit night leads Twins past Reds
    Eduardo Nunez finished 3-for-4 with an RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base as the Twins trumped the Reds 8-5 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Nunez and the Twins racked up 15 hits against Anthony DeSclafani and the Reds bullpen. The shortstop had three of them, collecting two singles and a double. He also stole his third base of the season. Nunez' usage has been inexplicable at times -- the light-hitting shortstop has served as the team's designated hitter in 11 games this year -- but he's put up decent numbers through 33 games, hitting .305/.350/.516 with 11 RBI and 13 runs scored. Perhaps he'll begin garnering more of the playing time at short with his hot hitting. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The homer was his second of the season, giving him seven RBI on the year. He finished 1-for-4 in the game. Urshela has quietly strung together hits in nine straight games to raise his overall line to .271/.317/.373. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The run was the only one either team would score in the game. Even after missing the season's first two weeks, Bryant's 40 walks are fifth-most in the National League. The 23-year-old is hitting .275/.381/.466 in his rookie year. Rotoworld.com

  • Zimmerman (foot) goes through full workout
    Ryan Zimmerman (foot) went through a full workout on Tuesday, hitting, fielding grounders and doing some running.

    Advice: He'll go through a similar workout on Wednesday before being re-evaluated. It's possible at that point Zimmerman will be cleared to begin a rehab assignment, as it would appear he could be activated by next week. "He hasn’t hit a groundball to short and had to run full-speed to first yet, so that’s the telling sign," Nationals manager Matt Williams said. "There’s no way to simulate that unless you get in a game situation and it happens naturally and he reacts. Going five steps to his left to dive for a ball or having to turn first to third, you can’t do it, you can’t simulate that, it’s never the same as being in competition." Rotoworld.com

  • 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.

  • Franco knocks in three runs as Phils top Nats

    Advice: Franco knocked in a run with an infield single as part of the Phillies' four-run second inning. He then knocked in the first two runs in another four-run frame in the fourth. The third baseman has knocked in 32 runs on the year along with hitting 10 home runs and compiling a .304/.349/.559 batting line. Rotoworld.com

  • Middlebrooks leaves game with apparent injury
    Will Middlebrooks was removed from Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Middlebrooks appeared to roll his ankle on a bat in the Diamondbacks on-deck circle while chasing down a foul pop fly. He was able to walk off the field under his own power, but will be evaluated by team trainers. The Padres should have an update on his status after the game. Rotoworld.com

  • Paredes homers, reaches four times in win
    Jimmy Paredes went 2-for-2 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Indians.

    Advice: Paredes reached base all four times he came to the plate, walking in his other two plate appearances. Paredes hit a two-run homer in the third inning before doubling and scoring in the sixth. Paredes continues to hit near the top of the Orioles' order in what has already been a career year for the journeyman. The 26-year-old is hitting .326/.352/.523 with nine homers, 36 RBI and 34 runs scored. Rotoworld.com

  • 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. Rotoworld.com

The pressure on the plantar fasciitis is being reduced and he is feeling better about it," Williams said. Zimmerman was prescribed only rest for the foot ailment, so as long as he's feeling good he can continue to work toward a return.

    Maikel Franco keeps on mashing, finishing 2-for-3 with a home run and five RBI as the Phillies outlasted the Yankees 11-6 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Starting at first base, the 22-year-old hit a three-run bomb in the fourth inning before swatting a two-run double in the ninth to break a tie. His recent hitting has been a bright spot in an otherwise dreary season for the Phillies, as Franco is now batting .319/.368/.604 with 10 homers and 29 RBI in 37 games.

    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. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Carpenter has some mid-back tightness
    Matt Carpenter is dealing with some mid-back tightness.

    Advice: That's part of the reason Carpenter is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday night in Miami, though manager Mike Matheny said he's been meaning to get the third baseman a day off anyway. It's not a serious issue. Mark Reynolds is at first base and Xavier Scruggs is at first base Tuesday versus the Marlins. Rotoworld.com

  • Zimmerman (foot) took swings on Tuesday
    Ryan Zimmerman (foot) took swings Tuesday for the first time since landing on the disabled list.

    Advice: Zimmerman has been fitted with an orthotic insert for his left cleat that will hopefully help him play through his plantar fasciitis. He was batting just .209/.265/.346 through 56 games before being placed on the disabled list June 11. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Carpenter not in Tuesday's lineup
    Matt Carpenter is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Marlins.

    Advice: The Cardinals just had a scheduled off-day on Monday, but perhaps Carpenter is just getting another day of rest. Mark Reynolds will fill in at third base while Xavier Scruggs will play first. Rotoworld.com
