  • Domingo Santana hits sixth homer
    Domingo Santana went 2-for-3 with his sixth homer and a walk Thursday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Santana has four homers in 37 at-bats for the Brewers after hitting two in 39 at-bats for the Astros earlier this year. He lacks range in center, but the Brewers will keep running him out there in order to see how his bat comes along. Today, 8:11 pm
  • Gordon could hit leadoff for Royals
    Royals manager Ned Yost said Thursday that he'll consider hitting Alex Gordon (groin) leadoff if he shows that his legs can handle the strain.

    Advice: Gordon just returned from a Grade 2 groin strain this week, so the Royals are easing him back into things. Alcides Escobar will be the regular leadoff hitter for the time being. Today, 2:36 pm
  • Shuck legs out go-ahead RBI triple
    J.B. Shuck went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit, two-run triple in Thursday afternoon's win over the Twins.

    Advice: Shuck's big two-run three-bagger came with the White Sox trailing 4-3 in the seventh inning. They wouldn't look back from their new-found lead. Nice hit off the bench for the backup outfielder, particularly given the fact that he's only seen 110 at-bats this season. In his limited role, he's hitting .282/.352/.373 with no home runs and 11 RBI. Today, 1:47 pm
  • Rosario launches grand slam off Samardizja
    Eddie Rosario connected for a grand slam in the third inning of Thursday afternoon's 6-4 loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: An Eduardo Escobar infield single and a pair of walks issued by White Sox starter Jeff Samardizja set the stage for Rosario to work his grand salami magic with two outs in the third inning. The 23-year-old outfielder is posting one of the sneakier productive seasons in the bigs in 2015, as he maintains a .271/.291/.446 triple-slash with nine homers, 10 triples, 37 RBI and 10 steals. Today, 1:42 pm
    L, 6-4 vs ^ CWS
  • Gomes batting fifth Thursday
    Jonny Gomes will bat fifth Thursday against the Tigers.

    Advice: Gomes, who was acquired from the Braves earlier this week, will start in left field against southpaw Matt Boyd. The 34-year-old owns an .890 OPS against left-handed pitching this season and makes for an appealing play in daily formats. Today, 1:21 pm
  • Nationals' Taylor (knee) out again Thursday
    Michael Taylor (knee) is out again Thursday.

    Advice: Taylor was a late scratch from Wednesday's series finale against the Cardinals with ongoing discomfort in his right knee. It's not believed to be a serious injury -- the Nationals were calling it a bruise last week -- but Taylor clearly needs at least one more day of rest. Bryce Harper is in center field and Clint Robinson is in left field on Thursday night against the Braves. Today, 1:02 pm
  • Nationals activate Tyler Moore from the DL
    Nationals activated 1B/OF Tyler Moore from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Moore missed a little over two weeks with a left ankle sprain. The 28-year-old has batted just .200/.253/.347 in 162 plate appearances this season, but he'll provide some much-needed outfield depth for the Nationals in his return to the active roster on Thursday. Today, 11:57 am
    W, 15-1 vs x Atl
  • Gregor Blanco (neck) goes 0-for-4 in return
    Gregor Blanco (neck) went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in the Giants' loss to the Dodgers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Blanco was held out of the Giants' starting lineup on Tuesday with some mild discomfort in his neck. The 31-year-old outfielder owns a relatively impressive .292/.372/.403 batting line in 109 games this season. Today, 5:55 am
  • Logan Morrison hits 15th homer in win
    Logan Morrison came off the bench to walk and then hit a three-run homer Wednesday in the Mariners' 8-3 win over the Astros.

    Advice: Morrison also homered in his lone at-bat Tuesday. He has 15 homers this season, six of which have come against the Astros. He's likely going to resume playing against most righties with Jesus Montero down (and nearly out). Yesterday, 9:31 pm
  • Shawn O'Malley reaches four times
    Shawn O'Malley went 3-for-4 with a walk, a steal and two runs scored in his first big-league start Wednesday against the Astros.

    Advice: O'Malley was called up Tuesday after hitting .297/.345/.413 as a 27-year-old in the PCL. He's a future 25th man at best, but with Austin Jackson gone, he could have some AL-only value the rest of the way. Yesterday, 9:25 pm
  • Taylor (knee) a late scratch Wednesday
    Michael Taylor (knee) was a late scratch from the Nationals' lineup on Wednesday.

    Advice: Taylor was originally in the lineup for the series finale against the Cardinals, but he was replaced by Bryce Harper in center field shortly before the start of the game. Harper slid over from right field, Jayson Werth moved from left to right and Danny Espinosa, who wasn't previously in the lineup, got the start in left. The Nationals should provide an update on Taylor's status after the game. Yesterday, 4:27 pm
  • Dodgers recall OF prospect Scott Schebler
    Dodgers recalled OF Scott Schebler.

    Advice: Schebler batted .241/.322/.410 with 13 homers and 15 steals at Triple-A Oklahoma City this season. He'll be a bench bat and healthy outfielder for the division-leading Dodgers. Yesterday, 3:47 pm
  • Alex Gordon sitting out Wednesday
    Alex Gordon is not in the Royals' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Gordon went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in his return to action Tuesday, but the plan is to ease him back into things. Paulo Orlando is covering left field in his place. Yesterday, 12:54 pm
  • Marcell Ozuna homers in Marlins' win
    Marcell Ozuna belted a two-run homer and scored twice in Wednesday's win over the Braves.

    Advice: The Marlins went ahead for good on a Martin Prado sac fly in the fifth and Ozuna provided some cushion with his blast later in the inning. It was his fourth longball in 18 games since his return from the minors. Ozuna has now gone deep eight times on the season to go along with 33 RBI. Yesterday, 12:31 pm
  • Drew Stubbs called up from Triple-A
    Rangers purchased the contract of OF Drew Stubbs from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Stubbs was signed to a minor league deal last week after being released by the Rockies. He's hit only .216/.286/.431 in the majors this season but offers the Rangers good defense and speed and some pop off the bench. Yesterday, 6:27 am
  • Calhoun's 3-hit night leads Angels over A's
    Kole Calhoun went 3-for-5 with an RBI single and a solo home run as the Angels topped the Athletics on Tuesday.

    Advice: Calhoun started the scoring in four-run third inning with an RBI infield single. He tacked on a solo home run in the seventh to push the Angels' lead to 6-1. The outfielder is batting .264/.321/.438 with 21 home runs and 69 RBI on the year. Tuesday, 10:13 pm
  • Gordon has two hits, RBI in first game back
    Alex Gordon went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in his return to action against the Tigers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gordon wasted no time finding ways to contribute, lifting an RBI sacrifice fly in his first at-bat before doubling and scoring in the seventh. The 31-year-old was enjoying another fine season at the plate before a groin strain stole nearly two months from him. Now healthy, Gordon will carry a .284/.396/.464 line into the season's final month. Tuesday, 9:26 pm
  • Gose has two hits, two runs scored Tuesday
    Anthony Gose went 2-for-4 with two runs scored against the Royals on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gose, back in the leadoff spot, had leadoff singles and scored in both the first and seventh innings. The 25-year-old is batting .253/.311/.363 with four homers, 54 runs scored and 19 stolen bases in his first year with the Tigers. Tuesday, 9:21 pm
  • Gregor Blanco nursing neck injury
    Gregor Blanco is dealing with some neck discomfort.

    Advice: It's not clear whether he's available off the bench Tuesday. Consider Blanco day-to-day. Tuesday, 5:25 pm
  • Mariners call up Shawn O'Malley from Triple-A
    Mariners purchased the contract of INF/OF Shawn O'Malley from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: O'Malley is being rewarded after a nice season in Triple-A where he batted .297/.345/.413 with five home runs, 39 RBI, and 20 steals over 89 games. The 27-year-old previously appeared in 14 games with the Angels last season. Tuesday, 1:16 pm
  • Royals activate OF Alex Gordon from DL
    Royals activated OF Alex Gordon from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Gordon has been sidelined since July 8 with a Grade 2 groin strain, but he felt good during a minor league rehab assignment and will make his return to the Royals' lineup on Tuesday night. He's expected to get regular rest down the stretch, so fantasy owners should have a backup plan in mind. Tuesday, 12:24 pm
  • Royals announce trade for Jonny Gomes
    Royals acquired OF Jonny Gomes and cash considerations from the Braves in exchange for SS Luis Valenzuela.

    Advice: Gomes has batted just .221/.325/.364 on the season but entered play Monday with a .271/.375/.458 batting line in the second half. He should serve mainly as a pinch-hitting option versus left-handers down the stretch. Monday, 6:44 pm
  • Royals to acquire outfielder Jonny Gomes
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Royals have acquired Jonny Gomes from the Braves.

    Advice: CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says the Braves will receive infield prospect Luis Valenzuela in return, with the Braves also sending the Royals some cash. Gomes was in the Braves' lineup Monday but was pulled following the fifth inning after the trade was apparently agreed upon. He's hitting only .221/.325/.364 on the season but entered play Monday with a .271/.375/.458 batting line in the second half. He'll offer the Royals a nice pinch-hitting option versus lefties. Monday, 5:44 pm
  • Teams showing interest in Jonny Gomes
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that "a few teams" are showing interest in Jonny Gomes.

    Advice: Gomes could be a solid pinch-hitting option against lefties for a contending team down the stretch. He's hitting just .223/.327/.368 overall this season but has a .271/.375/.458 batting line since the All-Star break. Monday, 3:51 pm
  • Michael Taylor (knee) goes 2-for-4 in return
    Michael Taylor (knee) went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in his return to the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Taylor was held out for a couple games after bruising his right knee. The young outfielder is going to be an important player for the second-place Nationals down the stretch with Denard Span (hip) now ruled out for the remainder of the 2015 season. Taylor, 24, is batting .243/.292/.391 with 13 home runs and 15 stolen bases in 111 games this year at the major league level. Monday, 7:15 am
  • Alex Gordon (groin) to play 4-5 games/week
    Royals manager Ned Yost plans to play Alex Gordon (groin) 4-5 games per week upon his activation from the disabled list.

    Advice: "This is kind of a one-shot deal," Yost said. "If he comes back and hurts it, he’s done. So we want to make sure he’s in great shape, healthy and ready to go, when he gets back." Gordon is hitting .400/.545/.600 over seven games so far on his rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha and is expected to be activated when rosters expand on Tuesday. "He feels really good," Yost said. "He’s running at about 90 percent, which is good. he’s taking walks, fouling off pitches, getting hits. He’s doing a lot of really good things. I just want to make sure that he’s ready when he gets here." Sunday, 8:09 am
  • Michael Taylor (knee) returns to Nats' lineup
    Michael Taylor (knee) is back in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Taylor didn't start the last couple games due to a bruised right knee. He was able to pinch-hit Saturday, though, and is back in the lineup Sunday. Sunday, 7:54 am
  • Michael Taylor (knee) appears as pinch-hitter
    Michael Taylor (knee) grounded out as a pinch-hitter in Saturday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Taylor hasn't started the last two games due to a bruised right knee, but that he was able to pinch-hit is a good sign that he's close. He could be back in the lineup Sunday. Sunday, 5:24 am
  • Michael Taylor (knee) remains sidelined
    Michael Taylor (knee) is not in the Nationals' starting lineup Saturday against the Marlins.

    Advice: He banged his right knee against the outfield wall in Thursday's win against San Diego. Denard Span's season-ending hip injury has opened up playing time for Taylor in center field. Bryce Harper will get the start there on Saturday. Saturday, 3:42 pm
  • Blanco reaches three times in win on Friday
    Gregor Blanco (hip) showed no signs of rust in his return to the Giants starting lineup on Friday, going 2-for-4 plus a walk in a victory over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Blanco had missed the previous two games due to a strained left hip. He has done a terrific job for the Giants this season, slashing .294/.378/.412 with three homers, 24 RBI and 12 stolen bases in 289 at-bats. Saturday, 5:19 am
  • Domingo Santana hits solo homer in win
    Domingo Santana went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: In addition to cracking his fifth home run of the year, Santana walked once and struck out once. The former Astro was part of the trade deadline deal that sent Carlos Gomez to Houston. In his first six games played with the Brewers, he's already homered three times. Those in need of some pop in deeper mixed leagues might want to take a flier. Friday, 10:41 pm
  • Ozuna doubles and homers to help beat WAS
    Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Friday's win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Ozuna hit an absolute bomb to dead center against Nationals starter Max Scherzer in the fourth inning. It traveled approximately 427 feet. He's picked up two hits in four of his last five games and has played well since being recalled to the majors on August 15. The 24-year-old outfielder makes for a decent mixed-league option, especially with the return of his power. Friday, 7:29 pm
  • Calhoun can't find traction vs Bauer
    Kole Calhoun went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday's loss to the Indians.

    Advice: Calhoun just couldn't get anything going from the lead-off spot. Given that the Angels only managed five total hits for the contest, he was just a cog in the machine of failure. He's hitting .262/.321/.431 with 19 homers and 66 RBI this season. Friday, 6:56 pm
  • Anthony Gose goes deep in loss to Blue Jays
    Anthony Gose belted his fourth home run of the season in a losing effort against the Blue Jays on Friday.

    Advice: His two-run shot off R.A. Dickey in the seventh inning pulled the Tigers to within two runs at 5-3, but that would be as close as they'd get. He finished the night 1-for-3 and is now hitting .253/.308/.366 with four homers and 23 RBI on the season. Friday, 6:38 pm
  • Michael Taylor (knee) to miss a few games
    Michael Taylor (knee) is expected to be sidelined for a few days.

    Advice: The feeling is that Taylor didn't cause any major damage when he collided with the outfield wall Thursday, but he has a bad bruise on his right knee. He could wind up missing the entire weekend series against the Marlins. Matt den Dekker should handle center field for a few days. Friday, 11:32 am

    Michael Taylor (knee) is listed as day-to-day after being diagnosed with a right knee contusion on Thursday.

    Advice: Taylor was pulled from Thursday's game in the seventh inning after crashing into the outfield wall. Thankfully, he was able to avoid any significant injuries and should be cleared to return to the Nationals lineup at some point over the weekend. Thursday, 7:31 pm
  • Michael Taylor leaves game after collision
    Michael Taylor was removed from Thursday's game against the Padres after crashing into the outfield wall.

    Advice: Taylor was attempting to track down a deep drive off the bat of Melvin Upton when he leaped and crashed into the outfield wall at full speed. The injury is believed to have occurred to his right knee, though the severity is unknown at the moment. The Nationals should have an update on his status after the game. Thursday, 7:07 pm
  • Gregor Blanco (hip) out of SF lineup Thursday
    Gregor Blanco (hip) is out of the Giants' starting lineup Thursday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Blanco was a late scratch from Wednesday's game with a left hip strain, but he felt good running in the outfield on Thursday morning and could be available off the bench already. Juan Perez is starting in center field and batting seventh on Thursday afternoon. Thursday, 11:13 am
  • Blanco a late scratch with left hip strain
    Gregor Blanco was a late scratch from Wednesday's lineup with a left hip strain.

    Advice: Blanco was replaced in the lineup by Juan Perez. It's another blow to a team ravaged by injuries this year. The Giants should provide a clearer outlook on Blanco shortly. Wednesday, 6:01 pm
  • Rosario triples, homers in win over Rays
    Eddie Rosario went 2-for-5 with a triple and a home run in Tuesday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: The triple was Rosario's 10th of the season, second in the majors only to Kevin Kiermaier. He also has eight home runs after Tuesday's solo shot. The 23-year-old is having a quietly steady debut season, batting .276/.298/.454 in 89 games. Tuesday, 8:24 pm
    L, 6-4 vs ^ CWS
  • Moore (ankle) to begin rehab stint Tuesday
    Tyler Moore (ankle) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A Potomac.

    Advice: Moore suffered a left ankle sprain last week, but he should be back in September. The 28-year-old is batting .200/.253/.347 with four home runs and 22 RBI over 162 plate appearances this season. Tuesday, 10:49 am
    W, 15-1 vs x Atl
  • Gomes homers, knocks in 3 to beat the Rockies
    Jonny Gomes went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a two-run home run to help the Braves beat the Rockies on Monday.

    Advice: Gomes gave the Braves a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the first inning with a two-run blast off of Jorge De La Rosa. He'd add an RBI single in the fifth to extend the Braves' lead to 4-2. It was Gomes' first start since August 15. The veteran has had his moments, but has largely been unimpressive, batting .214/.320/.348 with six home runs and 20 RBI in 219 plate appearances. Aug 24, 7:08 pm
  • Rangers ink Drew Stubbs to minor league deal
    Rangers signed OF Drew Stubbs to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Stubbs was released by the Rockies last week after hitting just .216/.286/.431 with five homers and 10 RBI in 102 at-bats this season. He'll play at Triple-A Round Rock for the next week before being a part of the Rangers' September call-ups. Stubbs could wind up seeing some time in left field with the big club if Josh Hamilton's knee injury lingers. Aug 24, 2:34 pm
