  • Span (knee) out for second game versus Jays
    Denard Span (knee) is not in the lineup for the second half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Span also sat out the first game. He made an early exit from Sunday's series finale against the Reds after experiencing renewed discomfort in his right knee and apparently hasn't felt much improvement. But an MRI showed no structural damage, so Span should be able to avoid another disabled list stint. Michael Taylor is playing center field on Tuesday night. Rotoworld.com

  • 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. Rotoworld.com

  • Span (knee) uncertain for Game 2
    Denard Span (knee) will run on an anti-gravity treadmill before the Nationals decide whether he can play in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Span left Sunday's game with renewed discomfort in his right knee and was on the bench for game one of the doubleheader. He's dealing with some swelling, so the Nationals might not push it. Rotoworld.com

  • Nats call up Matt den Dekker
    Nationals recalled OF Matt den Dekker from Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: He'll serve as the 26th man for Tuesday's doubleheader, effectively giving the Nats some insurance with Denard Span's knee. The 27-year-old den Dekker had a brief stint with the big club earlier this year and was hitting .230/.299/.289 in Triple-A. Rotoworld.com

  • Harper has RBI single against Blue Jays
    Bryce Harper had an RBI single, a walk, and a stolen base Tuesday as the Nationals took the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Harper appeared uncomfortable against knuckleballer R.A. Dickey in his first two at-bats, but he managed to break through with a single in the fifth to put the Nationals on the board. The stolen base was his third of the season. Harper leads the NL with 18 home runs and is tied with Miami's Giancarlo Stanton for the RBI lead at 44. Rotoworld.com

  • Colabello extends hitting streak to 12 games
    Chris Colabello had a single in four at-bats in a losing effort in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

    Advice: Colabello has now hit safely in 12 straight games. He's provided a huge boost to Toronto's battered outfield, posting a .364/.411/.556 batting line with four home runs and 14 RBI over 26 games, but we're very skeptical it's going to last. Rotoworld.com

  • Pompey shows signs of life in Triple-A
    Blue Jays prospect OF Dalton Pompey went 1-for-3 with a pair of walks and three runs scored on Monday for Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Pompey has struggled mightily since his early season demotion from the major leagues to Triple-A, as he’s batting just .197/.291/.237 through 19 games. That, of course, comes after he posted a .193/.264/.337 batting line in 23 games with Toronto. The 22-year-old switch-hitter is still considered one of the organization’s top prospects, but it’s clear he has some issues to work through at the plate before returning to the major leagues.

    Advice: The move clears a spot for the newly-claimed Hernan Perez. Herrera, 30, was batting .212 with four home runs and .633 OPS over 38 games this season and wasn't going to be a long-term piece for Milwaukee. Rotoworld.com

  • Bautista (shoulder) in RF for first gm. of DH
    Jose Bautista (shoulder) will start in right field for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

    Advice: Bautista was slated to play right field Monday before the game was postponed due to rain. He has been limited to DH duties since April 21 due to right shoulder inflammation, but has felt some improvement since a cortisone shot last week. We still wouldn't count on seeing him in right field on an everyday basis, but this is a good sign for the Blue Jays. Rotoworld.com

  • Span (knee) out for first gm. of doubleheader
    Denard Span (knee) is out of the starting lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: It's not a big surprise, as he was set to sit out Monday's game before it was postponed due to rain. Span left Sunday's game with renewed discomfort in his right knee and Nationals manager Matt Williams said Tuesday that an MRI revealed swelling. He'll continue to get treatment on the knee and could potentially play in the second half of the doubleheader, but fantasy owners should have a backup plan in place. Michael Taylor will play center field in the first game of the doubleheader. Rotoworld.com

    Mike Trout walked and hit a three-run home run in five trips to the plate Monday, helping the Angels overcome the Rays.

    Advice: Trout broke a 1-1 tie with his third-inning three-run blast off of Alex Colome. He's up to 13 home runs on the season along with 30 RBI, eight stolen bases, and a .294/.381/.552 batting line. Expect to see him in the MVP award conversation once again at the end of the season.

  • 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. Rotoworld.com

  • Ethier rips seventh homer as Dodgers beat COL
    Andre Ethier tripled and hit a solo home run in six at-bats Monday as the Dodgers took down the Rockies.

    Advice: Ethier started the scoring with a solo home run off of Kyle Kendrick in the second inning. He tripled and scored in the sixth as well. While we're inclined to discredit the performance since it was against Kyle Kendrick at Coors Field, it's not like Ethier hasn't been doing it all year. He's hitting .309/.395/.551 with seven home runs and 20 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Jennings (knee) plays in extended spring
    Desmond Jennings (knee) had a few at-bats in an extended spring training game Monday.

    Advice: It's his first game action since he landed on the disabled list in late April with left knee bursitis. The bad news is that Rays manager Kevin Cash said Jennings "still felt something" in his knee during the game. It's unclear whether he'll continue to keep playing in extended spring or if the Rays will pump the breaks a bit. Jennings has been out since late April. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Soler batted sixth on Saturday and Sunday. The 23-year-old outfielder is off to a sluggish start this season, but he's capable of getting it going in a hurry. Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo are batting ahead of him Monday versus Marlins right-hander Jose Urena. Rotoworld.com

    Matt Holliday (flu) is expected to return to the Cardinals' starting lineup on Monday night.

The veteran outfielder is batting .318/.434/.442 on the season and he's reached base in all 44 games he's played. He should start in left field and bat third in Monday's series opener against the Brewers. Rotoworld.com

  • Gregory Polanco goes deep in loss to Padres
    Gregory Polanco belted his third home run of the season on Sunday, accounting for the team's lone run in a losing effort against the Padres.

    Denard Span was removed from the eighth inning of Sunday's game due to soreness in his right knee.

    Advice: Span initially suffered the injury against the Cubs last week and he aggravated it in the sixth inning on Sunday. While it doesn't appear as though it'll sideline the outfielder for long, Span admits that it's something he has to keep an eye on and continue to get treatment for. He should be considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com

  • Gregory Polanco goes 2-for-5
    Gregory Polanco went 2-for-5 and stole his 13th base Saturday against the Padres.

    Advice: Polanco's steal total has helped offset an otherwise disappointing showing over the first two months. He does seem to be stepping it up a bit of late, and it's still quite possible he'll prove to be a top-30 fantasy outfielder over the rest of the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Holliday leaves game with illness
    Matt Holliday left Saturday's game against the Dodgers because of an illness.

    Chris Colabello blasted a go-ahead two-run homer in the ninth inning on Friday, powering the Blue Jays to a come-from-behind 6-4 victory over the Twins in Minnesota.

    Advice: It was Colabello's lone hit in four at-bats on the night, but certainly proved to be the critical blow in the ballgame. He has been a force the Blue Jays lineup since his callup, slashing .379/.432/.598 with four homers and 14 RBI. He needs to be owned and started in all mixed leagues until he cools off. Rotoworld.com

    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. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Bautista has been limited to designated hitter duty since late April due to a sore right shoulder. He's been throwing regularly since receiving a cortisone shot last weekend, though, and hasn't had any setbacks. The Blue Jays will be in Washington on Monday and not have the DH spot available.

    Angels purchased the contract of OF Alfredo Marte from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: He'll take the place of the injured Collin Cowgill on the Angels roster, and could see time in the outfield against left-handed pitching. He was on fire at the dish at Salt Lake, slashing .343/.401/.540 with four homers and 32 RBI through 37 contests. Rotoworld.com

  • Jones singles, strikes out twice vs CWS
    Adam Jones went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts in Thursday's loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Jones did hit a single against Chris Sale, but otherwise, he was held quiet. He hasn't had many of these kinds of games this season. For the year, Jones is hitting .313/.353/.472 with six homers, 25 RBI and 21 runs scored. His bat is one of the most consistent in the majors. Rotoworld.com

Marte was batting .343/.401/.540 with four home runs and 32 RBI in 37 games this season at Triple-A Salt Lake and should start in left field for the Angels against left-handed pitching. He may have some short-term value in AL-only fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Jason Heyward homers to lead Cardinals
    Jason Heyward hit a game-tying homer in the ninth inning Wednesday as the Cardinals beat the Diamondbacks 4-3.

    Advice: The Cardinals went on to win on a game-ending error from catcher Jordan Pacheco in the ninth. Heyward's homer was his third in 10 games and fifth overall. He's had a miserable season, which is why he was batting eighth against a right-hander tonight, but he's still playing quite a bit better now than he did in April. Rotoworld.com

  • Davis triples twice but Brewers fall to SFG
    Khris Davis went 2-for-4 with a pair of triples in Wednesday's loss to the Giants.

    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. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Holliday had an RBI single and came around to score in the Cardinals' four-run first inning. The multi-hit outing was his third in his last five games. Holliday is batting .322/.434/.450 in another quietly productive year for the 35-year-old. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Bautista gave the Jays a 3-2 lead in the third inning with a two-run ground-rule double. He added a two-run double in the fifth to give the Jays a 6-5 lead, then tacked on one more run with his third double in the seventh to make it a 7-6 game.

    Yasiel Puig (hamstring) has been hitting for a few days.

    Advice: Hitting hasn't been an issue, but Puig is still feeling some tightness in his left hamstring while running. He'll report to extended spring training to continue his rehab when the Dodgers begin their road trip this weekend. Obviously, fantasy owners can't get excited about getting him back until the tightness completely goes away. Rotoworld.com

    Andre Ethier broke a 2-2 tie in the eighth inning with a solo home run, helping lead the Dodgers past the Braves on Monday.

    Advice: Ethier started what turned out to be an avalanche of home runs, as Alex Guerrero and Jimmy Rollins followed up with round-trippers of their own. Ethier finished 2-for-3 with a walk on the evening. He has cooled off over the last couple of weeks, but still maintains a stellar .313/.407/.548 triple-slash line with six home runs and 17 RBI.

  • 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.

  • Davis hits two home run in loss
    Khris Davis went 3-for-3 with a pair of solo homers and three runs scored in a loss to the Giants on Monday.

    Advice: Davis also drew a walk, so he reached base in all four of his plate appearances. His first home run of the day nearly got taken away, as it was ruled that he didn't touch home plate after the Giants appealed. However, the call was reversed after a replay review. This was his second career multi-homer game. Davis has been very inconsistent so far this season, resulting in a .245/.333/.424 over 42 games. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The Blue Jays will be in Washington that night and will not have the designated hitter spot available.

    Advice: Bautista also sat out Sunday after getting a cortisone injection in his ailing right shoulder. He's been bothered by shoulder discomfort for over a month, but the Blue Jays are expected to keep the slugger active and continue using him as their primary designated hitter.

    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.

  • 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. Rotoworld.com

  • Trout provides lone RBI off of Wade Miley
    Mike Trout went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Disappointing end to a series that started out promisingly enough for the Angels, who romped into Fenway with a 12-5 win on Friday before scoring just four runs combined in the next two games. Trout managed an RBI double off Wade Miley to draw the Angels to within 3-1 in the sixth inning on Sunday, but the team wouldn't score again and the Red Sox would tack on another three runs, anyway. Trout is hitting like Mike Trout and currently sports a .301/.392/.552 slash with 11 homers, 25 RBI, 34 runs scored and eight steals. Rotoworld.com

He provided insurance in the seventh inning with an RBI single, and soon thereafter scored from first base on a Ryan Zimmerman double. The 22-year-old phenom has looked unstoppable through two months, batting .333/.471/.728 with 16 home runs and 41 RBI. Rotoworld.com

    Jose Bautista is not in Sunday's lineup after being given a cortisone shot for his ailing right shoulder.

  • Colabello goes deep as Jays fall to Mariners
    Chris Colabello blasted his third home run of the season in a losing effort against the Mariners on Saturday afternoon.

    Advice: His solo shot off opposing starter James Paxton in the fourth inning pulled the Jays to within a run at 3-2, but that would be as close as they would get. He finished the afternoon 1-for-3 and also drew a walk. Colabello has provided an offensive spark since joining the Blue Jays lineup, slashing .379/.438/.591 with three long balls and 10 RBI. He's worth riding in deeper mixed leagues for as long as he remains a regular in the lineup. Rotoworld.com

    Mike Trout went 3-for-6 with an RBI single, a run scored, and a stolen base Friday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Trout was initially ruled out while trying to steal third base in the top of the fifth inning, but the call was overturned after an instant replay review revealed his nifty slide to avoid the tag. He already has eight stolen bases through 42 games this season after swiping 16 all of last year. The 23-year-old has three straight multi-hit games, which has pulled his batting average up to .303 on the year. Rotoworld.com
