  • Robbie Ross recalled from Triple-A
    Red Sox recalled LHP Robbie Ross from Triple-A Pawtucket.

  • Josh Hamilton (hamstring) out again Wednesday
    Josh Hamilton (hamstring) is expected to sit out again Wednesday.

    Advice: Hamilton is dealing with some tightness in his left hamstring and will miss a second straight game. It's not viewed as a big deal, as the outfielder remains day-to-day.
    Today, 8:46 am
  • Danny Duffy (biceps) to throw simulated game
    Danny Duffy (biceps) will throw a simulated game on Thursday.

    Advice: Duffy resumed throwing from a mound last Friday and is ready to take the next step. He'll likely be physically ready to rejoin the Royals before long but probably isn't a given to be re-inserted into their rotation.

  • Danny Muno optioned to Triple-A
    Mets optioned INF Danny Muno to Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Muno has one hit in 15 at-bats over a couple stints with the big club this season. He'll return to a .280/.354/.400 line at Las Vegas.

  • Shane Peterson recalled from Triple-A
    Brewers recalled 1B/OF Shane Peterson from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Peterson has hit .320/.387/.523 with seven homers and 27 RBI at hitter-friendly Colorado Springs this season. He'll give the club some outfield depth with Khris Davis (knee) out.

  • Rosenthal: Red Sox acquire De Aza from O's
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Red Sox have acquired Alejandro De Aza from the Orioles.

    Advice: There's no word yet on what the Orioles will be getting in return or how much of what's remaining on his $5 million contract they might be picking up. De Aza was designated for assignment by Baltimore last Friday after batting just .214/.277/.359 over 30 games. Boston certainly isn't an ideal landing spot for him given all the other outfield options that they have.

  • Peter O'Brien not giving up catching yet?
    Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said Monday that a decision has not been made as to whether prospect Peter O'Brien has given up catching and become a full-time outfielder.

    Advice: The Triple-A Reno Aces' official Twitter account tweeted Sunday that O'Brien had "made the decision" to give up catching and it was later confirmed by the D'Backs. The tweet has since been deleted and now Stewart is saying nothing is final yet. "We're never going to let a player dictate to us what he wants to do," Stewart said. "We'll sit down and, as a group, discuss and talk about what we should be doing and what the best direction is for a player." O'Brien's throwing from the catcher position has returned to normal after he had the yips in spring training. Still, it sure seems like his future is in the outfield even if the decision isn't official yet. He's batting .339/.377/.634 with 12 homers and 47 RBI over 49 games for Reno this season.

  • Miller escapes trouble with his 16th save
    Andrew Miller allowed a run in the 11th inning, but still got his 16th save as the Yankees won 5-3 over the Mariners on Tuesday.

    Advice: Miller allowed a one-out single to Welington Castillo, then hit Austin Jackson with a pitch. After getting Brad Miller to pop up, Miller served up an RBI single to Robinson Cano, putting the tying run on base. The lefty bounced back and struck out Nelson Cruz to end the ballgame. It's only the second time this season Miller has been scored upon. He's 16-for-16 in save chances with a 1.16 ERA and a 37/9 K/BB ratio in 23 1/3 innings.

  • Montgomery takes no-decision in his MLB debut
    Mike Montgomery, making his major league debut, held the Yankees to one run in six innings, leaving with a no-decision as the Mariners lost in 11 innings on Tuesday.

    Advice: Montgomery looked solid, limiting the Yankees to four hits and two walks while striking out four. The only run came across in the third inning on a Mark Teixeira double. The Mariners may let him start again. If they do, Montgomery would be on track to take on the Rays at home on Sunday.
    Yesterday, 11:16 pm
  • Sabathia solid over 5 2/3 in a no-decision
    CC Sabathia limited the Mariners to two runs over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision Tuesday as the Yankees won in 11 innings.

    Advice: Sabathia allowed nine hits and a pair of walks, but limited the damage with six strikeouts. One run scored in the third inning on a Nelson Cruz single and the other scored in the sixth on an Austin Jackson double. It turned out to be one of Sabathia's stronger outings in what has been a disappointing year. The veteran lefty has a 5.45 ERA with a 1.47 WHIP and a 57/14 K/BB ratio in 66 innings. Sabathia will face the Nationals at home in his next outing.
    Yesterday, 11:14 pm
  • Rodney blows save, Mariners lose in 11 inn.
    Fernando Rodney blew the save, letting the Yankees score once in the ninth inning as the Mariners went on to lose in 11 innings on Tuesday.

    Advice: Rodney issued a leadoff walk, but then got two quick outs and it seemed like he would find his way out of trouble. The Yankees cobbled together a single followed by a Stephen Drew double to tie the game. Somehow, it's only Rodney's third blown save. He's pitched very poorly this year, currently holding a 6.85 ERA with a 20/12 K/BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings. The Mariners have to be running thin on patience with Rodney. If a change is made, Carson Smith would likely move into the closer's role. Fantasy owners in need of saves may want to stash him just in case.
    Yesterday, 11:12 pm
  • Jones homers in the 11th in a Yankees win
    Garrett Jones went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run, helping the Yankees take down the Mariners in 11 innings on Tuesday.

    Advice: Reliever Joe Beimel came in to face Jones with two men aboard in the 11th inning and Jones made him pay, sending the lefty's offering over the fence in right-center with plenty of room to spare. Jones has otherwise not done much in 62 plate appearances for the Yankees, batting .254/.290/.407 with two home runs and seven RBI.
    Yesterday, 11:05 pm
  • McCutchen flirts with cycle in win vs. Giants
    Andrew McCutchen finished a home run shy of the cycle, going 4-for-5 with two RBI as the Pirates won against the Giants on Tuesday.

    Advice: McCutchen is a ball of hot fire right now, as Tuesday's effort marked his sixth multi-hit game in his last 11 contests. He knocked in a run in the third inning with a single and padded the Pirates' lead with an RBI double in the ninth. McCutchen's early-season struggles are in the rear-view mirror now, as he's hitting .292/.379/.497 with seven home runs and 32 RBI. If there is one complaint, it's that he hasn't been very active on the base paths -- he has only three stolen bases in five attempts to date after going 18-for-21 last year.
    Yesterday, 10:34 pm
  • Kemp strikes out three times, but Padres win
    Matt Kemp struck out three times in four at-bats Tuesday, but the Padres took down the Mets anyway.

    Advice: Kemp's OPS is now below .600 following the arduous night. He has only two extra-base hits in 99 plate appearances dating back to May 7. His triple-slash line is a poor .242/.277/.322 with one home run and 26 RBI.
    Yesterday, 10:24 pm
  • Cuddyer's three-hit night not enough for Mets
    Michael Cuddyer logged three hits in four at-bats, but the Mets lost Tuesday against the Padres.

    Advice: Cuddyer knocked in the first of two Mets runs with a single in the first inning. He scored the Mets' other run on a Wilmer Flores single in the sixth. Cuddyer is now on an eight-game hitting streak. He's hitting a respectable .271/.333/.409 with five home runs, 23 RBI, and 25 runs scored.
    Yesterday, 10:22 pm
  • Norris homers as Padres take down the Mets
    Derek Norris went 2-for-4 with a walk and a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Mets.

    Advice: Norris homered off of Noah Syndergaard in the fourth inning, extending the Padres' lead to 7-1. He has five home runs on the year now while hitting a productive .287/.327/.468 with 34 RBI. Norris is halfway to matching his season-high in home runs.
    Yesterday, 10:19 pm
  • Collmenter goes 5 2/3 innings in no-decision
    Josh Collmenter just missed out on a quality start, yielding three runs in 5 2/3 innings as the Diamondbacks beat the Braves on Tuesday.

    Advice: Collmenter was strong through five innings, but faltered in the sixth. He left with two on and two outs, and reliever J.C. Ramirez allowed both inherited runners to score along with three more of his own. Collmenter gave up six hits but walked none and struck out three. He's been solid more often than not despite an unsightly 5.03 ERA. He has a 1.36 WHIP and a 32/9 K/BB ratio over 62 2/3 innings as well, which he'll take into Sunday's home start against the Mets.
    Yesterday, 10:13 pm
  • Pollock's homer sends D'Backs past Braves
    A.J. Pollock gave the Diamondbacks a lead they wouldn't relinquish in the seventh inning with a two-run home run Tuesday versus the Braves.

    Advice: Pollock went yard off of Brandon Cunniff to give the Diamondbacks a 7-6 lead in the seventh inning. He went 2-for-5 on the evening, also knocking in a run with a ground out. Pollock continues to do it all for the D'Backs, batting .314/.365/.474 with six home runs, 22 RBI, 34 runs scored, and 13 stolen bases.
    Yesterday, 10:02 pm
  • Forsythe ties career-high with his 6th homer
    Logan Forsythe went 1-for-2 with a pair of walks and a two-run home run as the Rays beat the Angels on Tuesday.

    Advice: Forsythe put the Rays on the board in the first inning, hitting a two-run home run off of C.J. Wilson. It's his sixth of the season, matching his career-high set in each of the last three seasons. With four months of the 2015 season left, it's safe to say he'll end up setting a new career-best. Forsythe is also hitting .288/.374/.475 with 24 RBI and 22 runs scored.
    Yesterday, 9:48 pm
  • Pujols ties Jimmie Foxx with 534th homer
    Albert Pujols hit his 534th career home run, tying him with Jimmie Foxx for 17th all-time, but the Angels lost to the Rays on Tuesday.

    Advice: Pujols finished 1-for-4. His solo home run in the fourth inning off of Chris Archer accounted for the Angels' only run of the evening. Pujols' next target after Foxx is Mickey Mantle at 536, then Mike Schmidt at 548. The veteran has 14 home runs total on the year with 27 RBI and a .254/.303/.508 batting line.
    Yesterday, 9:46 pm
  • Hale serves up 3 homers in loss to Dodgers
    David Hale, making a spot start, took a no-decision in the second game of a doubleheader Tuesday after yielding four runs in six innings as the Rockies fell to the Dodgers.

    Advice: All four runs came on three home runs: an Enrique Hernandez solo home run in the first, a Joc Pederson solo homer in the third, and a two-run shot by Adrian Gonzalez also in the third. Hale gave up seven hits overall while walking none and striking out five. The Rockies could continue to use Hale out of the rotation given Jordan Lyles' toe injury, but as his performance on Tuesday showed, he doesn't have any fantasy appeal. If Hale does start again, he would be on track to face the Cardinals at home.

  • Tulowitzki's late homer wasted by bullpen
    Troy Tulowitzki hit a late, tie-breaking homer, but it was wasted by the Rockies in a loss to the Dodgers in the nightcap of a doubleheader on Tuesday.

    Advice: Tulowitzki, who finished 1-for-4, broke a 5-5 tie in the bottom of the seventh inning with a two-run home run off of Yimi Garcia, but the Rockies' bullpen would waste their newfound lead. Tulowitzki has begun heating up at the plate, hitting three of his five home runs on the season in his last four games. He's also batting a respectable .287/.303/.468 with 23 RBI, though he's certainly capable of producing much better numbers.
    Yesterday, 9:08 pm
  • Guerrero hits clutch grand slam vs. Rockies
    Alex Guerrero pinch-hit and blasted a two-strike, two-out grand slam in the ninth inning to erase a three-run deficit as the Dodgers took down the Rockies in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader.

    Advice: It's hard to come up any bigger than that. Though it is no surprise coming from Guerrero, as he has been hitting all season long. The salami was his 10th homer of the season. The 28-year-old also has 25 RBI and a .296/.327/.684 triple-slash line in 100 plate appearances.
    Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Gattis homers, has three RBI in win over O's
    Evan Gattis went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in the Astros' 6-4 victory on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gattis blasted a three-run shot off Orioles starter Mike Wright in the third inning, his 12th home run of the season. The designated hitter is sixth in the AL in home runs and seventh in the league with 36 RBI. After a slow start, Gattis has proven to be what the Astros hoped they were getting when they traded for him this past winter.
    Yesterday, 9:04 pm
  • Flaherty has two-run triple in loss to Astros
    Ryan Flaherty hit a two-run triple and scored a run in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Flaherty's triple was part of a four-run second inning against Astros starter Collin McHugh. The triple, his second of the year, was Flaherty's only hit in three at-bats. Flaherty is hitting .276/.364/.517 in a part-time role this year.
    Yesterday, 9:00 pm
  • Robbie Ross to be recalled Wednesday
    Robbie Ross will be recalled Wednesday to serve as the 26th man during a doubleheader versus the Twins.

    Advice: Ross has put up a 5.29 ERA and 1.53 WHIP across 15 relief appearances for the Red Sox this season. He'll be sent back down after Wednesday.
    Yesterday, 6:51 pm
  • Mariners call up Montgomery for MLB debut
    Mariners recalled LHP Mike Montgomery from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Montgomery will make his major league debut Tuesday at home against the Yankees and could be up for an extended period if the outing goes well. The 25-year-old left-hander has lost his top-prospect status, but he's put up a decent 3.74 ERA and 47/15 K/BB ratio in 53 innings this season at the Triple-A level. There may be some value here for deep mixed-leaguers.
    Yesterday, 2:16 pm
  • Josh Hamilton sits Tues. with sore hamstring
    Josh Hamilton is out of the Rangers' starting lineup Tuesday due to tightness in his left hamstring.

    Advice: It sounds like the kind of routine soreness that comes with an extended absence from live baseball games. Hamilton has registered a 1.021 OPS in 22 at-bats since rejoining the Rangers. Consider him day-to-day.
    Yesterday, 1:04 pm
  • Rockies recall RHP Hale from Triple-A
    Rockies recalled RHP David Hale from Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: He'll serve as the 26th man for Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers and will start the second game. Hale allowed three runs (two earned) over 6 2/3 innings in spot start against the Giants last month, but he's not a fantasy option.

  • Tulo sits for first game of doubleheader
    Troy Tulowitzki is out of the starting lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Daniel Descalso will start at shortstop. Look for Tulo to play in the nightcap.
    Yesterday, 9:00 am
  • Pujols homers twice as Angels down Rays
    Albert Pujols crushed a pair of home runs, going 3-for-5 as the Angels topped the Rays on Monday.

    Advice: Pujols gave the Angels plenty of insurance with his homers. His first, in the fifth inning, extended the lead to 5-3. His second, in the eighth inning, made it 7-3. Pujols -- now with five home runs in his last five games -- has 533 round-trippers in his career, leaving him one short of tying Jimmie Foxx for 17th on the all-time leaderboard. Pujols also has 13 homers on the season along with 26 RBI and a .254/.304/.497 triple-slash line.
    Monday, 10:10 pm
  • Kemp goes 0-for-2, ejected from Padres' loss
    Matt Kemp went 0-for-2 with a strikeout before being ejected in Monday's loss to the Mets.

    Advice: Kemp was ahead in the count 3-1 in the eighth inning, but was ejected mid at-bat by home plate umpire Dan Iassogna. Manager Bud Black was tossed as well. Alexi Amarista came off the bench to pinch-hit and lined out. Kemp has not done much at the plate this season, batting just .246/.282/.329 with one home run and 26 RBI.
    Monday, 9:48 pm
  • Gattis knocks in 2, extends hit streak to 8
    Evan Gattis extended his hitting streak to eight games, going 1-for-4 with a two-run single in Monday's win against the Orioles.

    Advice: Gattis gave the Astros insurance, turning a 3-2 lead into a 5-2 lead with a two-run single to right field in the seventh inning. The DH has been on fire lately, homering three times with four multi-hit games during his eight-game hitting streak. On the year, Gattis has gone yard 11 times while driving in 33 runs and batting .231/.260/.484.
    Monday, 8:02 pm
  • Mike Montgomery to make MLB debut Tuesday
    Mariners pitching prospect Mike Montgomery will be recalled to make his major league debut on Tuesday against the Yankees.

    Advice: He's taking James Paxton's (finger) spot in the rotation. A former top-50 prospect, Montgomery has seen his star fade dramatically the last couple years but has had a nice season at Triple-A Tacoma, posting a 3.74 ERA and 47/15 K/BB ratio over 53 innings. He could stick around for a bit if he pitches well.
    Monday, 3:45 pm
  • Derek Norris not in lineup Monday
    Derek Norris is not in the Padres' lineup Monday.

    Advice: It looks to be just a routine day off. Austin Hedges is behind the plate while Norris rests.
    Monday, 3:09 pm
  • David Hale to start during doubleheader
    David Hale will be recalled to start during Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Dodgers.

    Advice: Hale pitched well in a spot start last month, allowing two earned runs over 6 2/3 against the Giants. With Jordan Lyles (toe) going on the disabled list, he could wind up earning more starts.

  • Hamilton hits walk-off double to beat Red Sox
    Josh Hamilton hit a two-run double off of Koji Uehara to give the Rangers a 4-3 win on Sunday.

    Advice: Hamilton was pinch-hitting for Adam Rosales in the ninth. Good move by manager Jeff Bannister, as Hamilton promptly doubled off Koji Uehara to end the game. Since being acquired by the Rangers, Hamilton is hitting .273/.385/.636 with two homers and five RBI over 22 at-bats.
    Sunday, 4:04 pm
  • Peter O'Brien switches to outfield full-time
    The Diamondbacks confirmed Sunday that prospect Peter O'Brien has switched to the outfield full-time.

    Advice: Given the D'Backs injury woes behind the plate, and the fact that O'Brien had been making strides defensively, it's a surprising development. The 24-year-old is currently hitting .341/.382/.653 with 12 homers and 46 RBI over 46 games at Triple-A Reno.

    Red Sox optioned LHP Robbie Ross to Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Ross has put up a 5.29 ERA and 1.53 WHIP across 15 relief appearances for the Red Sox this season. He'll try to iron out his issues at Pawtucket.

  • Josh Hamilton getting a day off Sunday
    Josh Hamilton is not in the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's his first day off since he returned to action last Monday. Delino DeShields is in left field Sunday in Hamilton's place.
    Sunday, 9:01 am
  • Troy Tulowitzki getting a breather Sunday
    Troy Tulowitzki is absent from the Rockies' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It looks like a routine day off. Daniel Descalso is at shortstop in Tulo's place.
    Sunday, 7:58 am
  • Michael Cuddyer not in lineup Sunday
    Michael Cuddyer is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It appears he's just getting a breather. John Mayberry is in left field in Cuddyer's place.
    Sunday, 7:20 am
  • Albert Pujols tweaked groin on Friday
    Albert Pujols injured his groin in Friday's win against the Tigers.

    Advice: That prompted the Angels to call up Efren Navarro from Triple-A Salt Lake. Pujols will DH Saturday with Navarro getting the start at first base. Despite his low average (.250), Pujols is still a decent source of power for fantasy owners. He's tied for 11th in the American League with ten home runs this season.
    Saturday, 5:07 pm
  • Derek Norris delivers walkoff grand slam
    Derek Norris delivered a walkoff grand slam as the Padres beat the Pirates 6-2 on Friday.

    Advice: Rob Scahill walked the first batter he faced in a 2-2 game, then threw the ball away handling a sac bunt, putting runners on second and third. An intentional walk followed to lead the bases. Scahill almost escaped from there, getting grounders from Alexi Amarista and Yangervis Solarte that both resulted in outs at home. However, Norris ended it with a big blast. It was just his fourth homer, but he has 32 RBI already.
    Friday, 11:10 pm
  • Fernando Rodney struggles, earns save anyway
    Fernando Rodney recorded his 14th save despite giving up a run in the ninth Friday against the Indians.

    Advice: Rodney surrendered an RBI triple to Ryan Raburn before getting Michael Brantley to fly out to end the game. Just nine of his 21 pitches were strikes. Lloyd McClendon has been stubbornly patient with him, but this can't be allowed to go on for much longer. Rodney has allowed runs in seven of 10 appearances this month.
    Friday, 10:50 pm
  • Albert Pujols goes 3-for-4, homers
    Albert Pujols finished 3-for-4 with a homer against the Tigers on Friday.

    Advice: Homers in back-to-back games have given Pujols 10 for the year. Incredibly, he still has just 20 RBI, even though he's been hitting behind Mike Trout all season. One imagines he'll come around there, though.
    Friday, 10:33 pm
  • Hamilton homers twice as Rangers top Red Sox
    Josh Hamilton hit his first two home runs of the season in Friday's 7-4 win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: Hamilton launched a solo homer in the bottom of the second inning before hitting another solo blast in the fourth. It was his ninth career multi-homer game. The 34-year-old is coming off shoulder surgery and remains an injury risk, but his return to Texas puts him in a great position to be valuable in mixed fantasy leagues again.
    Friday, 8:17 pm
  • Tulowitzki homers twice to power Rockies
    Troy Tulowitzki clobbered a pair of solo home runs off Cole Hamels on Friday, powering the Rockies to a 4-1 victory over the Phillies.

    Advice: Tulo got the Rockies on the board with his solo blast in the first inning and repeated the feat in the third inning. He also collected a pair of singles, finishing the night 4-for-4 with two runs scored and a pair of RBI. The oft-injured shortstop is now hitting .285/.303/.456 with four long balls and 20 RBI on the season.
    Friday, 6:53 pm
  • Orioles getting interest in Alejandro De Aza
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that "there's said to be a bit of a market" for Alejandro De Aza.

    Advice: De Aza was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Wednesday after batting .214/.277/.359 over 30 games. He's making $5 million this season, so the O's would likely have to eat some of the contract to move him in a trade. Heyman says that the Angels are not among the clubs interested in De Aza.

  • OF McCutchen has another multi-hit effort
    Andrew McCutchen went 3-for-5 with two doubles, two runs scored and two RBI as the Pirates bested the Padres on Thursday.

    Advice: McCutchen has finally woken up from his early-season slumber. He's had multi-hit games in five of his last eight, recording three in three of them. Hitting .188 as recently as May 6, McCutchen has his slash line up to .272/.364/.473. Expect it to keep rising.
    Thursday, 10:58 pm
  • Pujols reaches base 3 times, homers in win
    Albert Pujols went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer, two walks and two runs scored in a 12-2 victory against the Tigers on Thursday.

    Advice: Pujols has nine homers -- putting him on a 30-pace clip -- but he isn't doing much else. He has only 19 RBI and has a rough .238/.294/.436 slash line. On a positive note, he's hit safely in six of seven and has four extra-base hits in that stretch.
    Thursday, 10:45 pm
  • Sabathia runs out of steam, gives up 5 ER
    C.C. Sabathia struggled again on Thursday, coughing up five runs on eight hits across six innings in a loss to the A's.

    Advice: Sabathia actually started out quite well. He'd been spotted a 3-0 lead by the bottom of the fifth when the wheels began to fall off, which perhaps could have been predicted when Billy Burns hit a homer. Sabathia has a solid 51/12 K/BB rate, but it comes with a 2-7 record, 5.67 ERA and 1.43 WHIP. Steer clear outside of AL-only formats.
    Thursday, 10:10 pm
  • Josh Hamilton goes 2-for-4, doubles
    Josh Hamilton went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI against the Red Sox on Thursday.

    Advice: The double off Eduardo Rodriguez was his first extra-base hit. Hamilton is 3-for-15 since coming off the disabled list on Monday.
    Thursday, 8:14 pm
  • Red Sox recall LHP Ross from Triple-A
    Red Sox recalled LHP Robbie Ross from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: He'll replace the injured Daniel Nava (thumb) on the active roster. Ross has already had a couple of stints with the big club this season, posting a 5.14 ERA with nine strikeouts and six walks over 14 innings of work.
    Thursday, 1:48 pm
  • Hamilton sick Thursday but playing anyway
    Josh Hamilton has a cold but is starting anyway Thursday in his return to Arlington, Texas.

    Advice: Hamilton will play left field and bat fifth against the visiting Red Sox. He joked that the cold might take his mind off the nerves of returning to the stadium where he's played 348 of his 980 career major league games.
    Thursday, 12:49 pm
  • Gattis has three hits, homer against Orioles
    Evan Gattis went 3-for-4 a two-run homer in Wednesday's loss to the Orioles.

    Advice: Gattis connected on a two-run homer against Orioles starter Ubaldo Jimenez to tie the game in the seventh inning. The homer was his 10th of the year and his third in his last eight games. Gattis is still hitting just .218 but now has 30 RBI and 21 runs scored this season.

  • Miller earns 14th save with a perfect ninth
    Andrew Miller shut the Royals down in order in the ninth inning, picking up his 14th save as the Yankees won 4-1 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Miller got consecutive ground outs from Omar Infante and Paulo Orlando before getting Alcides Escobar to line out to end the contest. The lefty is still perfect in 14 save opportunities with a 0.84 ERA and a 34/9 K/BB ratio in 21 1/3 innings.

  • Cuddyer homers as Mets sweep the Phillies
    Michael Cuddyer went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, helping the Mets complete a sweep of the Phillies on Wednesday.

    Advice: Cuddyer pushed the Mets' lead to 4-0 in the third inning, ripping a two-run shot off of Sean O'Sullivan. He had also homered in the series opener against the Phillies. The 36-year-old hasn't looked like the hitter who hit over .330 in consecutive years in 2013-14 with the Rockies. He's batting .262/.331/.396 with five home runs and 22 RBI thus far.

  • Alejandro De Aza designated for assignment
    Orioles designated OF Alejandro De Aza for assignment.

    Advice: He played really well for the O's last year down the stretch of the regular season and in the playoffs, but they've decided to cut him loose after his slow start in 2015. De Aza, who batted leadoff for Baltimore on Opening Day, has hit just .214/.277/.359 over 30 games this season and was seeing his playing time dwindle. He's making $5 million this season, which means he'll almost surely clear waivers.

  • Ryan Flaherty activated from disabled list
    Orioles activated INF Ryan Flaherty from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Flaherty is playing second base and hitting seventh for the O's Wednesday. He's battled a groin issue for over a month -- an injury that caused two DL stints -- but is convinced he's over it now.

  • Duffy (biceps) to throw off mound Friday
    Danny Duffy (biceps) will throw a bullpen session on Friday.

    Advice: Duffy played catch on Tuesday and evidently felt well enough to resume mound work in a few days. Even though he appears to have made a rapid recovery, he still seems likely to need a rehab assignment before returning, especially with Jason Vargas having returned and Chris Young pitching well.

  • Kemp's 10th inning double sends Padres to win
    Matt Kemp hit a bases-clearing double in the 10th inning to break a scoreless tie and send the Padres to a victory against the Angels on Tuesday.

    Advice: Kemp made reliever Joe Smith pay for a single and two walks by clearing the bases with a double to left field. He scored not long after and finished the night 1-for-5. It marks his first multi-RBI game since April 29 as he has hit the skids offensively. Kemp is hitting .255/.291/.348 with only one home run and 25 RBI.

  • Rodney allows three runs in second blown save
    Fernando Rodney allowed three runs to take a blown save against the Rays on Tuesday, earning the win instead.

    Advice: It actually could have been worse for Rodney, as he allowed two runs before even recording an out. After Evan Longoria's two-run double, Rodney pulled it together, but he wasn't able to hold onto the lead. Rodney now owns an unsightly 6.98 ERA and 1.71 WHIP, and the Mariners may be forced to look elsewhere for saves shortly.
    Tuesday, 8:45 pm
  • Danny Duffy (shoulder) plays catch
    Danny Duffy (biceps) played catch on Tuesday.

    Advice: Duffy was placed on the disabled list on Monday with tendinitis in his left biceps. The Royals haven't seemed overly concerned, though, and the fact that he's already throwing again is obviously a good sign. Even if Duffy's stay on the DL is relatively short, he might not have a rotation spot when he gets back with Jason Vargas having returned and Chris Young pitching well.

  • Forsythe to play first base with Loney out
    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Monday that Logan Forsythe will function as the regular first baseman with James Loney (finger) sidelined.

    Advice: This will open things up for Nick Franklin to get more playing time at second base. Rene Rivera, Jacob Elmore, and Tim Beckham could also see some reps at first base, but Forsythe should get most of the playing time. Loney is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.
    Tuesday, 6:12 am
  • Pujols delivers a walk-off RBI single vs. SDP
    Albert Pujols hit a broken-bat RBI single to help the Angels walk off winners in the bottom of the ninth against the Padres on Monday.

    Advice: Padres closer Craig Kimbrel was trying to clean up Kevin Quackenbush's mess and walked Mike Trout to load the bases with two outs to face Pujols. Pujols broke his bat, but was strong enough to drive a grounder into left field for the walk-off hit. He finished 1-for-5 on the night. The veteran first baseman is batting a mediocre .228/.280/.420 with eight home runs and 17 RBI.
    Monday, 9:23 pm
  • Guerrero blasts eighth homer in win vs. ATL
    Alex Guerrero slugged a pinch-hit two-run home run in Monday's win against the Braves.

    Advice: Guerrero pinch-hit for the pitcher against right-handed reliever Nick Masset with a man aboard, socking a pitch to deep left-center, extending the Dodgers' lead to 5-2. Guerrero also homered on Sunday and now stands with eight along with 20 RBI and a .309/.337/.679 batting line.
    Monday, 8:08 pm
  • Rodney has rare stress-free 9th for a save
    Fernando Rodney worked a stress-free ninth inning to pick up his 13th save in Monday's 4-1 victory over the Rays.

    Advice: Rodney got two ground outs before Joey Butler reached base on a single to shallow right field, but he was able to get Evan Longoria to fly out to end the game. The veteran closer has been anything but a sure thing taking the mound in the ninth inning, but he's now 13-for-14 in save chances with a 5.89 ERA and an 18/8 K/BB ratio in 18 1/3 innings.
    Monday, 7:16 pm
  • Forsythe provides Rays' only run with a homer
    Logan Forsythe walked and hit a solo home run, providing the Rays' only run in Monday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Forsythe put the Rays on the board with a sixth-inning solo shot to left field off of Roenis Elias. The 28-year-old has done a terrific job, batting .299/.374/.487 with five home runs and 21 RBI. He has played mostly at second base in the absence of Nick Franklin and has value in mixed leagues as long as he's hitting the way he is and getting regular at-bats.
    Monday, 7:08 pm
  • Josh Hamilton hitless in return to action
    Josh Hamilton went 0-for-3 but did walk and score a run against the Indians in his return to action Monday.

    Advice: Batting in the fifth spot in the lineup, Hamilton struck out in first plate appearance, walked in his second, struck out again in his third and reached on an error in his fourth. He might take some time to knock the rust off, but Hamilton is in as good a position as possible to succeed, batting in the middle of a red-hot lineup in the place where he's had his greatest accomplishments.
    Monday, 5:34 pm
  • Alejandro De Aza goes hitless against Astros
    Alejandro De Aza went 0-for-3 from the ninth spot in the Orioles order on Monday.

    Advice: De Aza is just 8-for-42 in May (.190), bringing his overall average down to .216. He's already lost some playing time against right-handers, and it looks like he's in position to lose more to David Lough and Travis Snider.

  • Josh Hamilton bats fifth in return to Rangers
    Rangers activated OF Josh Hamilton from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Hamilton is starting in left field and batting fifth Monday in his first game for the Rangers since the 2012 American League Wild Card round. The 34-year-old batted .364/.391/.545 with five doubles, one home run, six RBI, and nine runs scored on his 12-game minor league rehab assignment, and he's a good bet for high-level fantasy production back with Texas. Get him active in all standard fantasy leagues.

  • Tulowitzki not in Rockies' lineup on Monday
    Troy Tulowitzki is not in the Rockies' starting lineup Monday against the Reds.

    Advice: Daniel Descalso will fill in at shortstop for the Rockies in the afternoon opener at Great American Ball Park. It's just a day of rest for Tulo, who's batting .235/.254/.294 through 71 plate appearances in May.
    May 25, 7:16 am
  • Danny Duffy (shoulder) lands on disabled list
    Royals placed LHP Danny Duffy on the 15-day disabled list with left biceps tendinitis.

    Advice: Duffy reported feeling discomfort around his left shoulder last week and he's been rocked in his last few starts, so the Royals will give him some extended rest. Jason Vargas will be activated to start in his place Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium and Brandon Finnegan will join the Royals from Triple-A Omaha on Monday.

  • Hamilton to start in left field for Rangers
    Josh Hamilton (shoulder) will start in left field for the Rangers on Monday.

    Advice: He'll be activated from the disabled list on Monday and make his official return to the Rangers. Manager Jeff Banister has yet to announce where he'll hit in the batting order, but with the team's offense rolling in recent days it's unlikely he will want to disrupt the middle of the lineup. Fifth seems right.
    May 24, 4:11 pm
  • Guerrero homers in beatdown loss to Padres
    Alex Guerrero hit a two-run homer in Sunday's big loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Guerrero smacked his homer off of James Shields in the seventh inning, drawing the Padres to within 10-3. There was no epic comeback in the works, though, and the homer worked merely to pad Guerrero's stats. Not that they need much padding. With a .300/.329/.638 slash line, plus seven homers and 18 RBI in just 80 at-bats, Guerrero has taken advantage of limiting playing time to put up productive numbers.

  • Mets recall INF Danny Muno from Triple-A
    Mets recalled INF Danny Muno from Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: The 26-year-old only saw six at-bats in his first stint with the big league club, going 1-for-6 (.167) with three strikeouts. He'll function as infield depth with the recent news that David Wright has been shut down for at least another week.

  • Gattis powers Astros in slugfest win vs. DET
    Evan Gattis tripled, homered, knocked in three runs, and scored three runs as the Astros eked out a win in a slugfest with the Tigers on Sunday.

    Advice: Gattis brought in the Astros' first two runs with a triple in the first inning and later scored on a balk. He added a solo home run in the sixth inning. The slugger's bat has heated back up as the month of May nears its end, picking his triple-slash line up to .201/.233/.435 with nine home runs and 28 RBI.
    May 24, 1:43 pm
  • David Hale optioned to Triple-A
    Rockies optioned RHP David Hale to Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: Hale pitched well in a spot start Saturday, allowing two earned runs over 6 2/3 innings. That could earn him another shot when the Rockies need another starter.
