    Advice: Santana was hit on the wrist by a pitch in the ninth inning of Tuesday's game. He stayed in the contest and should be fine, but the Indians will check on him Wednesday to see how sore he is. With a day game, there's a good chance Santana could be rested. Rotoworld.com

  • D'Arnaud (finger) plays in ext. spring game
    Travis d’Arnaud (finger) caught five innings Tuesday in an extended spring training game.

    Carlos Santana belted a solo homer and scored a pair of runs in Monday's loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: Santana got the Indians on the board in the first inning with a solo blast in what turned out to be an offensive slugfest. He also drew a pair of walks on the day.

    Travis d'Arnaud (finger) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as June 1.

    Advice: That's a best-case scenario, while Mets general manager Sandy Alderson thinks the June 4-7 series versus the Diamondbacks might be a more realistic target. D'Arnaud will play five innings in an extended spring training game on Tuesday before then beginning a rehab assignment at High-A St. Lucie.

    Devin Mesoraco is expected to decide whether to undergo season-ending surgery on his left hip when the Reds return home from their road trip Monday.

    Advice: Mesoraco experienced continued pain while attempting to squat on Friday and hasn't even been available to serve as a designated hitter the last two days. Being able to catch again this season looks like a long shot, so he could decide soon to go ahead and have the procedure. "I'm sure we'll have some type of meeting," he said. "I don't know what we're going to do. I don't expect to be catching in the near future. We'll talk when we get back to Cincinnati." Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Grandal suffered the injury Friday when Padres first baseman Yangervis Solarte hit him with his backswing.

    Advice: The catcher finished 2-for-4 on the evening. He knocked in the Rockies' third run in the first inning with a single to left field. With the game tied at 5-5 in the eighth, he drilled a Justin De Fratus offering over the fence in left-center to put the Rockies on top. Hundley has hit well thus far, batting .307/.349/.465 with three home runs and 11 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Mesoraco (hip) has two hits against Royals
    Devin Mesoraco (hip) went 2-for-2 with a walk in Tuesday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Serving as the designated hitter because he's still not ready to catch, Mesoraco showed that his timing is coming around at the dish. What that means when the team returns to a National League is still unclear, but the team obviously thinks he'll be alright without a disabled list stint. Rotoworld.com

  • Yan Gomes (knee) could return on Sunday
    Yan Gomes (knee) could be activated from the disabled list on Sunday.

    Advice: Gomes will catch his first full game on his rehab assignment with Triple-A Columbus on Friday. The likelihood is that he'll then join the Indians Saturday before being activated and playing on Sunday. Gomes is not expected to play in back-to-back games right away, as the Indians want to ease him back into things after he missed over a month with a right MCL sprain. Rotoworld.com

  • Cervelli exits after taking foul tip off mask
    Francisco Cervelli left Tuesday's game against the Twins after taking a foul tip off his mask.

    Advice: The Pirates are saying his exit was precautionary, so it doesn't sound like there are any concussion concerns. Cervelli might get a day of rest Wednesday, though. Rotoworld.com

  • Mesoraco (hip) goes through catching drills
    Devin Mesoraco (hip) got into a squat position about 15 times and tossed about 15 balls to second base on Tuesday.

    Advice: Mesoraco was only throwing at around 20 percent effort, but it's still a nice first step. He'll repeat the step on Wednesday and then could catch a bullpen session over the weekend. "At least I know I can get into squat position, which I hadn't done for 30-something days," Mesoraco said. "It's good. Definitely baby steps. We're not going to go crazy because those muscles haven't been used. It's going to be a slow process." Mesoraco hasn't caught since April 12 due to a left hip impingement. Rotoworld.com

  • Carlos Santana (back) 'a couple of days' away
    Carlos Santana (back) said Tuesday that while he feels better, it could be "a couple of days" before he returns to the lineup.

    Advice: Santana is out of the lineup for the third straight day Tuesday because of back spasms. It sounds like he might not be back in there until the weekend series against the Reds. Rotoworld.com

  • Mesoraco (hip) at DH for Reds on Tues. night
    Devin Mesoraco is at DH for the Reds on Tuesday.

    Advice: Mesoraco will finally get another start with the Reds playing a two-game set in an American League park (the Royals' Kauffman stadium). He hasn't caught since April 12 and is still unable to squat due to a left hip impingement. It's a frustrating situation for fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com

    Carlos Santana (back) is not in the Indians' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the White Sox.

    Advice: Santana did not play Sunday and was scratched from the lineup Monday due to back spasms. Consider him day-to-day for now. Brandon Moss is at first base and Nick Swisher is at DH on Tuesday versus Chicago. Rotoworld.com

  • Realmuto provides only offense as Fish lose
    J.T. Realmuto provided the Marlins' only offense in Monday's loss to the Diamondbacks when he hit a two-run home run.

    Advice: Realmuto tied the game up at 2-2 in the seventh inning with his blast off of Rubby De La Rosa. It's his first of the year. He went 1-for-4 with a walk along with the homer. The successor to Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Realmuto hasn't done much at the dish as he's batting a meager .227/.267/.351 with eight RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Yan Gomes (knee) could return soon
    Yan Gomes (knee) will catch seven innings on Wednesday during his rehab assignment at Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: That's after he catches five frames on Monday. Obviously the Indians will want him to go nine innings before considering activating him, but manager Terry Francona said it won't be necessary for Gomes to catch back-to-back games. He's expected back pretty soon. "We understand that especially being a catcher, he's not going to be built up to where you can start playing him back-to-back," Francona said. "As long as he's healthy, we can activate him. Having him catch three times a week is better than not. We have to make sure he's completely healthy, so he can play the game." Rotoworld.com

    Carlos Santana was scratched from Monday's lineup with back spasms.

    Advice: Santana didn't play Sunday, either, as he revealed that the issue began to crop up on Saturday. Consider him day-to-day. Brandon Moss, who had been scheduled for a day off, is covering first base in Santana's absence. Rotoworld.com

  • Travis d'Arnaud (finger) resumes swinging
    Travis d'Arnaud (finger) resumed swinging Monday.

    Advice: The catcher has been doing other baseball activities for more than a week. Mets manager Terry Collins told reporters that d'Arnaud will be activated once he's able to play a full nine-inning game (hitting and catching included). That could feasibly happen by the end of May.

  • Grandal's single drives in only run in win
    Yasmani Grandal's run-scoring single in the fourth inning would be the only run scored in a 1-0 Dodger win over the Rockies on Sunday.

    Advice: Grandal finished the game 1-for-2 with a walk. The two-out RBI single off of Kyle Kendrick gave Grandal 17 RBI for the season. He's also hit four homers and scored 17 runs. The catcher's been in a groove offensively and has a season-slash of .301/.421/.484 while helping to lead the 24-13 Dodgers. Rotoworld.com

  • Perez homers and drives in two in win
    Salvador Perez went 2-for-4 with a home run and an RBI single in Sunday's win over the Yankees.

    Advice: Perez welcomed Chris Capuano back to the Yankee rotation with a solo home run in the bottom of the second inning, then added an RBI single in the fourth inning. The home run was Perez's fifth this season and the two RBI pushed his season total to 21. He's also hitting .288/.296/.446 in what's been a reliable season for the 25-year-old catcher. Rotoworld.com
