  • Ian Desmond goes 3-for-5
    Ian Desmond had three hits, two of them doubles, Wednesday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Desmond has a 12-game hitting streak going, though this is his first three-hit game since April 18. He's now hitting .257 and slugging .406. It's the first time his slugging has been up over .400 in a month.

  • Carlos Correa goes deep again for Fresno
    Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa broke an 0-for-8 slump by belting his third homer Tuesday for Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Correa also gunned down a runner at home plate. The 20-year-old has shown he belongs by hitting .283 in his first 14 games at Triple-A. He's hitting second in a potent Fresno lineup and looks poised to be a big-time contributor. The Astros have done fine without him but there's certainly a chance Corra could play at the big league level this season.

  • 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.

  • Jose Iglesias (knee) still out Wednesday
    Jose Iglesias (knee) remained out of the Tigers' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: He's now missed four straight starts with a sore left knee. Iglesias is available to pinch-hit and is able to field balls directly at him but is still having some issues with side-to-side movements. Dixon Machado is filling in at shortstop Wednesday.
    Yesterday, 9:54 am
  • Marcus Semien benched for Wed. game
    Marcus Semien is not in the Athletics' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Semien has just three hits over his last 27 at-bats and has really struggled defensively, so the A's are giving him a breather. Eric Sogard is handling shortstop in his place.

  • Corey Seager breaks out for four hits Tuesday
    Dodgers shortstop prospect Corey Seager delivered four hits Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: The 21-year-old mega-talent homered twice Monday and is now batting .500 with four RBI over his last three contests. The former first-round pick has made a smooth transition to Triple-A, hitting .280 in 93 at-bats since his call-up. Seager is's sixth-ranked prospect. It's no wonder the Dodgers let Hanley Ramirez walk in free agency with Seager waiting in the wings.

  • Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) draws IBB as PH
    Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) drew an intentional walk as a pinch-hitter in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.

    Yesterday, 5:13 am
  • Andrus collects three more hits against Tribe
    Elvis Andrus went 3-for-4 with a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the Indians.

    Advice: Andrus had a double among his three hits. The shortstop has multiple hits in four of his last five games, raising his average to .247. With the steal, he's now 6-of-10 on the year.
    Tuesday, 9:06 pm
  • Ahmed hits second home run against Cardinals
    Nick Ahmed went 2-for-4 with a home run in Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: After going 35 games without a home run, Ahmed has now homered twice in his past five games. Ahmed also doubled in the game, raising his line to .218/.279/.311. That doesn't sound like much, but the shortstop is hitting .290 in May after a brutal April.
    Tuesday, 8:22 pm
  • Flores hits a walk-off single as Mets top PHI
    Wilmer Flores knocked in the tying and game-winning runs as the Mets walked off winners in 10 innings versus the Phillies on Tuesday.

    Advice: Flores, who went 1-for-4 on the night, tied the game at 4-4 with an eighth-inning sacrifice fly against Ken Giles. In the 10th inning, he came to the plate with runners on the corners and two out. He lifted an Elvis Araujo offering into left field to bring in the winning run. Flores has hit for decent power but otherwise has been lackluster, batting .252/.284/.429 with seven home runs and 21 RBI.
    Tuesday, 7:37 pm
  • Russell delivers walk-off 2B as Cubs top Nats
    Addison Russell delivered a walk-off RBI double in the bottom of the ninth inning to send the Cubs to a win against the Nationals on Tuesday.

    Advice: Russell finished 3-for-4 on the night. The Cubs had a runner on second base and two outs in the bottom of the ninth when Russell ripped a double to right-center off of reliever Matt Grace. Russell now has 11 doubles on the season and is batting .252/.301/.426 with three home runs and 13 RBI.
    Tuesday, 6:57 pm
  • Jose Iglesias (knee) out again Tuesday night

    Ben Zobrist is batting third in his return to the A's starting lineup Tuesday against the Tigers.

    Advice: Zobrist was activated from the disabled list Monday, but the A's wanted to give him a day to reacclimate before throwing him back into the fire. The versatile 33-year-old missed four weeks following knee surgery.

  • Jean Segura (finger) will be activated Friday
    Jean Segura (finger) will be activated Friday.

    Advice: A followup X-ray taken Monday on Segura's fractured right pinkie showed significant healing, so the Brewers are going to rush him back without a rehab assignment. Segura only wound up missing 15 days. The 25-year-old shortstop was batting .262/.306/.373 with two home runs and six stolen bases in 33 games before the injury.

    Tuesday, 12:09 pm
  • J.J. Hardy (back) in O's lineup Tuesday
    J.J. Hardy (back) is in the Orioles' lineup Tuesday against the Astros.

    Advice: Hardy had to make an early exit Monday due to back tightness, but he downplayed the situation after the game and didn't expect to miss any time. Sure enough, he's right back in there Tuesday, hitting seventh against Scott Feldman.

  • Rollins homers as Dodgers rally late in a win
    Jimmy Rollins went 1-for-5 with a solo home run as the Dodgers rallied late to beat the Braves on Monday.

    Advice: Rollins hit the last of three home runs against reliever Nick Masset in the eighth inning. His was a solo shot to make it a 6-2 ballgame. Rollins has been a disappointment in his first season with the Dodgers, batting .201/.275/.348 with five home runs, 14 RBI, and five stolen bases in eight attempts.
    Monday, 8:15 pm
  • Elvis Andrus has big day at the dish Monday
    Elvis Andrus had a rare big day at the plate Monday, doubling in two runs and smacking a solo home run in a win over the Indians.

    Advice: Andrus wasn't the only one in this one who was sprinting to the bat rack, as Prince Fielder and Adrian Beltre also homered as part of a 10-run, nine-hit outburst by the Rangers. The shortstop's slash line still sits at a sickly .236/.293/.309, but he does have three multi-hit games his last four times out.
    Monday, 5:15 pm
  • Peralta's walk-off homer wins it for Cards
    Jhonny Peralta singled and ripped a walk-off, solo home run in Monday's victory over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: The Cardinals' bullpen coughed up a lead in the eighth inning and they had to pitch out of bases-loaded jam in the top of the 10th. However, Peralta made the wait worth it with a leadoff shot against J.C. Ramirez that just snuck over the left-field wall. The shortstop is putting together an All-Star caliber campaign with a .304/.367/.500 batting line and seven home runs.
    Monday, 4:55 pm
  • Ramirez has first RBI this month
    Hanley Ramirez had an RBI single in Monday's loss to the Twins.

    Advice: Believe it or not, it was his first RBI this month. Ramirez is batting just .234 (15-for-64) with three doubles and an 11/2 K/BB ratio in 16 games since returning from his shoulder injury.
    Monday, 2:29 pm
  • J.J. Hardy (back) expected to play Tuesday
    Orioles manager Buck Showalter expects J.J. Hardy (back) to be in the lineup on Tuesday.

    Advice: Hardy dealt with a tight back throughout Monday's game before finally exiting in the eighth inning. The shortstop thinks he just slept funny, though, and is expected to be fine.

  • Wilmer Flores cranks seventh homer in win
    Wilmer Flores cranked his seventh home run of the season Monday in the Mets' defeat of the Phillies.

    Advice: And just like that, he is leading all major league shortstops in home runs. Flores was retired in his other three at-bats Monday and is batting just .252 with a .287 on-base percentage for the season, but his pop gives him value at a position where production is scarce.
    Monday, 1:25 pm
  • Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) aims to return Tues.
    Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) expects to return Tuesday.

    Advice: Cabrera is out of the Rays' starting lineup on Monday night against the Mariners after leaving Sunday's game with a groin strain. The strain is of the minor variety.
    Monday, 1:01 pm
  • J.J. Hardy exits game with back tightness
    J.J. Hardy made an early departure from Monday's game against the Astros due to back tightness.

    Advice: Hardy looked uncomfortable for much of the afternoon and was finally replaced in the eighth inning by Everth Cabrera. Baltimore is calling Hardy day-to-day for now.

    Jung Ho Kang is not in the Pirates' lineup Monday.

    Advice: Josh Harrison is starting at third base and Jordy Mercer is starting at shortstop against Marlins right-hander David Phelps. Kang will be available off the bench. He's batting .304/.369/.435 in his first 31 major league games.
    Monday, 12:34 pm
  • Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) sitting out Monday
    Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) is not in the Rays' starting lineup on Monday night versus the Mariners.

    Advice: Cabrera was forced from Sunday's series finale against the A's with a mild groin strain. He's considered day-to-day. Tim Beckham is at shortstop on Monday.
    Monday, 11:51 am
  • Rays recall Tim Beckham from AAA Durham
    Rays recalled INF Tim Beckham from Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Beckham was just optioned to the minors last week, but the Rays need him to provide infield depth with first baseman James Loney ruled out indefinitely after suffering a broken finger. Beckham was batting just .224/.266/.459 at the time of his May 22 demotion. He's doubtful to hold mixed-league fantasy value.
    Monday, 11:41 am
  • Blue Jays activate Jose Reyes (rib) from DL
    Blue Jays activated SS Jose Reyes from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Reyes is back with the Jays after missing four weeks with a cracked rib. He went 4-for-11 with two RBI on a three-game rehab assignment at Triple-A Buffalo and should be activated immediately in fantasy leagues. The veteran shortstop was batting just .250/.266/.300 in 16 games before the injury, but he can get it going in a hurry.
    Monday, 11:01 am
  • OAK activates Ben Zobrist (knee) off the DL
    Athletics activated UTIL Ben Zobrist from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Zobrist wound up missing just under four weeks following arthroscopic knee surgery. It was initially expected that he would be out until the middle of June. The versatile 33-year-old had batted .240/.304/.400 with one home run, five doubles, eight RBI, and eight runs scored through his first 14 games this season.

  • Iglesias (knee) not in Detroit lineup Monday
    Jose Iglesias (knee) is not in the Tigers' starting lineup Monday afternoon in Oakland.

    Advice: Dixon Machado will get the nod at shortstop and bat ninth. Iglesias injured his knee Saturday when he collided with Chris Carter of the Astros. An MRI ruled out any structural damage, but he has a bad bruise.
    Monday, 9:36 am
  • Javier Baez goes deep twice in Sunday's win
    Cubs shortstop prospect Javier Baez launched two homers Sunday in a win for Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: Baez had a great weekend, mashing seven hits in 13 at-bats with three homers and six RBI. The 22-year-old doesn't have enough at-bats to qualify, but if he did, his OPS (.944) would be the eighth-highest in the Pacific Coast League while his slugging percentage (.540) would be tenth-highest. Baez crushed nine homers in his first stint in the big leagues last season but struggled to hit for average (.169 in 213 at-bats).

  • Danny Santana getting another day off Mon.
    Danny Santana is getting another day off Monday.

    Advice: Santana, batting just .233/.253/.320, didn't play Sunday either. His high-level rookie production always seemed like a mirage, and he's nothing more than a poor speed option at this point. Eduardo Escobar is starting at shortstop Monday afternoon against the Red Sox.
    Monday, 8:13 am
  • 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.
    Monday, 7:16 am
  • Hanley (hand) goes 1-for-4 in win Sunday
    Hanley Ramirez (hand) went 1-for-4 with a run scored Sunday as the Red Sox defeated the Angels.

    Advice: Hanley had to be removed from Friday's loss to the Angels after taking a pitch off his left hand, but he went 2-for-4 in Saturday's win and also played a role Sunday. The 31-year-old left fielder is hitting .263/.313/.480 with 10 home runs, 22 RBI, and 24 runs scored through his first 40 games with Boston.
    Monday, 5:45 am
  • Jose Reyes to rejoin Blue Jays on Monday
    Jose Reyes (ribs) is set to be activated from the disabled list and rejoin the Blue Jays lineup on Monday.

    Advice: He's making his way back from a cracked rib sustained in late April. Reyes went 4-for-11 with a pair of RBI in a three-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo over the weekend. He'll return to a .250/.266/.300 slash line with no homers, seven RBI and three stolen bases through 16 games.
    Sunday, 7:31 pm
  • Cabrera leaves with mild groin strain Sunday
    Asdrubal Cabrera was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Athletics with a mild groin strain.

    Advice: Cabrera felt a pop in his groin area while scurrying back to second base in the seventh inning. While he's sore, he thinks he'll be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list and should return to the lineup in a couple of days.
    Sunday, 4:08 pm
  • Gonzalez's 3 hits contribute to Astros' win
    Marwin Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a pair of runs scored as the Astros held off the Tigers on Sunday.

    Advice: Jose Altuve wasn't in the lineup Sunday as he was getting a day of rest. Gonzalez took second base in his stead and performed admirably, contributing to a 10-run outburst on the afternoon. He's hitting .263/.271/.421 on the year with two home runs, 12 RBI, and 13 runs scored.
    Sunday, 1:49 pm
  • Brock Holt removed after hit by line drive
    Brock Holt was removed early from Sunday's game against the Angels after he was struck in the arm by a line drive.

    Advice: Holt hung around for another few innings afterwards, but claimed he started to lose feeling in his arm as the game wore on. Pablo Sandoval replaced him and finished the game at third base for the Red Sox. Holt should be considered day-to-day.

  • Flores manages two hits in drubbing by PIT
    Wilmer Flores went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's loss to the Pirates.

    Advice: Flores can proudly tell his grandchildren that he did not strike out against Francisco Liriano in a game that saw 12 strikeouts by the former Twin. Not only did Flores not strike out, he managed the only run for the Mets (on an RBI single in the fifth inning) and was the only Met to record more than one hit. He's hitting .252/.288/.417 with six homers and 16 RBI this season.

    Jean Segura (finger) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Friday.

    Advice: Segura will undergo an X-ray on Monday to see if his fractured right pinkie finger is healed. If it is, a decision will be made on whether he needs a short rehab assignment. Friday is the first day he's eligible to return from the disabled list.

    Sunday, 6:38 am
  • Jose Iglesias leaves early with bruised knee
    Jose Iglesias is day-to-day after leaving Saturday's game with a left knee contusion.

    Advice: He banged knees with Chris Carter on an infield single back in the third inning. Hernan Perez came in to pinch-run for Iglesias after he singled again in the fifth. Perez and Andrew Romine are candidates to fill in at shortstop if Iglesias misses time.
    Saturday, 2:47 pm

    Ben Zobrist (knee) is expected to be activated from the disabled list and rejoin the Athletics on Monday.

    Advice: He has been sidelined since undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery on April 28, and has made very quick work of his recovery which was initially expected to extend into mid-June. Before hitting the disabled list, Zobrist was hitting .240/.304/.400 with a homer and eight RBI in his first 14 games with the A's.

    X-rays on the hand of Hanley Ramirez came back negative late Friday.

    Advice: He was hit by a pitch during Friday's loss to the Angels and was removed from the game. He appears to have avoided any serious injury and should be considered day-to-day.
    Saturday, 5:09 am
  • Nick Ahmed comes up big in 13-inning win
    Nick Ahmed homered and delivered a game-winning single in the 13th as the Diamondbacks edged the Cubs 5-4 on Friday.

    Advice: Nick Ahmed? The homer was his first of 2015 and second in 174 major league at-bats. He raised his average from .l94 to .212 with his first three-hit game of the year. His defense has been terrific, which is why he won the job in the first place. Anything he offers with the bat is a bonus as far as the Diamondbacks are concerned.
    Friday, 11:14 pm
  • Rays option Tim Beckham to Triple-A Durham
    Rays optioned INF Tim Beckham to Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: The 25-year-old infielder went 2-for-4 with his fifth home run of the season on Friday, but became a roster casualty as the Rays needed a fresh arm in the bullpen. While he has shown flashes, he's hitting just .224/.266/.459 on the year and could benefit from everyday at-bats at Triple-A.
    Friday, 8:47 pm
  • Jose Reyes reaches three times in rehab game
    Jose Reyes went 1-for-3 and drew a pair of walks in his second minor league rehab game with Triple-A Buffalo on Friday.

    Advice: Reyes served as the designated hitter on Friday after manning his position defensively on Thursday. He'll remain on his rehab assignment the remainder of the weekend before rejoining the Blue Jays on Monday.
    Friday, 7:43 pm
  • Kang has RBI, SB in win over Mets
    Jung Ho Kang had an RBI single and a stolen base against the Mets on Friday.

    Advice: Kang has hit safely in five straight games and owns a .310/.372/.440 batting line with two home runs, 11 RBI, and three stolen bases through 29 games. He has pushed the struggling Jordy Mercer to the bench in recent days and deserves to be owned in more fantasy leagues right now.
    Friday, 6:57 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez leaves with sore left hand
    Hanley Ramirez was removed from Friday's game against the Angels due to soreness in his left hand.

    Advice: Ramirez was drilled by a pitch there earlier in the ballgame. The fact that the score was 11-3 at the time may have also played a role in his early departure. He should be considered day-to-day.
    Friday, 6:34 pm
  • Marcus Semien getting a breather Friday
    Marcus Semien is not in the Athletics' lineup Friday.

    Advice: New A's coach Ron Washington is putting Semien through drills prior to Friday's game as he seeks to improve the youngster's defense, so it's no surprise he's not in the lineup. Andy Parrino is handling shortstop.

  • Russell smacks a homer in win over Padres
    Addison Russell went 2-for-4 with a solo homer on Thursday in a win against the Padres.

    Advice: The seventh inning blast off Dale Thayer provided an insurance run in the 3-0 triumph. Slowly but surely, Russell is getting up to speed. The 21-year-old rookie slashed .179/.207/.286 in 28 April at-bats (14/1 K/BB rate) after his promotion, but now boasts a May OPS over .800. He has drawn four walks in the past six games after taking only three in his first 21.

  • Brock Holt goes 0-for-3 against Rangers
    Brock Holt went 0-for-3 with a walk and struck out looking to end the game Thursday against the Rangers.

    Advice: Holt's great start seems like a distance memory now; he's hitting .149 with one RBI in 47 at-bats since April 27. The Red Sox are playing him less with Shane Victorino (kind of) back, but he has started the last two days with Pablo Sandoval banged up.

  • Jose Reyes goes 1-for-4 in first rehab game
    Jose Reyes (rib) went 1-for-4 in his first minor league rehab game with Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday.

    Advice: His lone hit was a single off of Tigers right-hander Bruce Rondon who is on a rehab assignment of his own at Triple-A Toledo. Reyes played six innings defensively at shortstop without any issues, and assisted on a pair of double plays. He's expected to remain with Buffalo through the weekend before potentially rejoining the Blue Jays on Monday.

  • Hardy notches go-ahead RBI single in eighth
    J.J. Hardy broke a 4-4 tie in the eighth inning with an RBI single.

    Advice: Hardy hit the one-out single off of Danny Farquhar to score Chris Davis, helping the Orioles to push back the Mariners 5-4. He finished 1-for-4. In the 12 games he's played since being activated from the disabled list on May 7, Hardy is 9-for-46 with two homers, a double and four RBI. He's currently hitting .196/.229/.348. The numbers aren't particularly good, but we'll preach patience for the time being.

  • Flaherty (groin) expected to begin rehab soon
    Ryan Flaherty (groin) is expected to begin playing in rehab games with Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday or Monday.

    Advice: Flaherty has been on the 15-day disabled list since May 12 because of a mild right groin strain. He should be ready to return when first eligible and will likely resume getting regular starts at second base for the Orioles, who will be without Jonathan Schoop (knee) until mid-July.

  • Ian Desmond homers in second straight
    Ian Desmond homered in a second straight game Wednesday against the Yankees.

    Advice: Desmond is 8-for-22 with five RBI and six runs scored over his last five games. He's also attempted two steals after trying just one in his first 36 games of the year. He was caught on one of them, but it's a good sign that he's running again. Last year, he was 24-for-29 stealing bases.

  • Reyes (rib) expected to rejoin Jays on Monday
    Jose Reyes (rib) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

    Advice: Reyes will begin a minor league rehab assignment Thursday with Triple-A Buffalo and remain there through the weekend. The veteran shortstop has been on the disabled list since April 27 because of a cracked rib. Reyes was batting just .250/.266/.300 in 16 games before the injury, but he's capable of getting it going in a hurry.

  • Carlos Correa hits first Triple-A home run
    Astros shortstop Carlos Correa belted his first Triple-A homer Tuesday in a win for Fresno.

    Advice: Correa hasn't stopped hitting since his promotion, batting .316 with a .500 slugging percentage over his first eight games with Fresno. He has two or more hits in four of his last five contests. With 16 steals and 36 RBI across two levels, Correa has been as good as any hitter in the minor leagues this season. The 20-year-old appears poised to make his big league debut in 2015.

  • Hanley Ramirez (leg) back in Red Sox' lineup
    Hanley Ramirez (leg) is back in the Red Sox' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Hanley had to leave Tuesday's contest after banging his left leg on a slide, but he'll gut it out in this one. Ramirez hasn't hit with the same authority since returning from a shoulder injury that he was earlier in the season.

  • HanRam doubles twice among three hits Tuesday
    Hanley Ramirez went 3-for-5 with two doubles and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

    Advice: Ramirez oddly had just one double on the year coming into the game. He had to make an early exit after jamming his left leg, but it's considered a minor injury. The shortstop is batting .276/.322/.522 overall this season.

  • Hanley Ramirez exits game with leg injury
    Hanley Ramirez left Tuesday's game against the Rangers after jamming his left leg on late.

    Advice: It sounds like he was removed for precautionary reasons. Consider Ramirez day-to-day for the time being. He went 3-for-5 with two doubles and a run scored before exiting Tuesday.

  • Reyes (rib) beginning rehab assignment Thurs.
    Jose Reyes (rib) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday.

    Advice: It's not clear how many games he'll need, but the shortstop seems likely to be ready for activation early next week. Reyes has acknowledged that he could have to play through some discomfort for the remainder of the season as a result of his broken rib.

  • Cabrera lifts second home run in win over ATL
    Asdrubal Cabrera hit his second home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Braves.

    Advice: Cabrera hit a solo shot off Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz in the fourth inning, his only hit in four at-bats. Cabrera was given a prime opportunity early in the season, batting third for 23 games for manager Kevin Cash, but he failed to capitalize and has now been moved lower in the order. The infielder is batting just .214 with his two homers and 11 RBI in 39 games.

  • Reyes says rib issue could linger all year
    Jose Reyes admitted Tuesday that his rib injury will "probably" linger all season.

    Advice: Reyes has been on the disabled list since April 27 because of a cracked rib and while the rest has likely helped, it doesn't sound like he expects to be 100 percent. The veteran shortstop is set to take batting practice Tuesday, after which the Blue Jays will make a decision on a possible minor league rehab assignment.

  • Santana batting leadoff Tuesday
    Danny Santana will bat leadoff Tuesday against the Pirates.

    Advice: It will be his first start out of the leadoff spot since April 29. Santana has hit safely in five straight games, but he still owns a .254/.270/.343 batting line on the year to go along with a 37/2 K/BB ratio. Batting leadoff certainly enhances his fantasy appeal, but it's not the best baseball move.

  • Troy Tulowitzki (quad) returns to lineup Mon.
    Troy Tulowitzki (quad) is back in the Rockies' lineup Monday.

    Advice: Tulo missed the previous two games after his left quad tightened up on him during Friday's contest. Fantasy owners have their fingers crossed that he'll be able to stay on the field this week with the Rockies having eight games at Coors Field.
    Monday, 2:22 pm
  • Reyes (rib) may begin rehab games this week
    Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Jose Reyes (rib) could begin a rehab assignment this week.

    Advice: There may be an official announcement in that regard Monday after the Blue Jays' afternoon tilt with the Angels. Reyes has been on the disabled list since April 27 because of a cracked rib. He's been taking on-field batting practice without issue since the middle of last week. The shortstop should be ready by the end of May.
