  • Morrison reaches base four times in a loss
    Logan Morrison went 3-for-3 with a walk and a pair of doubles, but the Mariners lost in walk-off fashion to the Angels on Tuesday.

    Advice: Morrison doubled and scored in the second inning, doubled and was stranded in the fourth, then singled and scored in the eighth. It was yet another productive night at the plate for the first baseman, who has started to heat up. He's on a seven-game hitting streak and has bolstered his triple-slash line to a more respectable .247/.300/.430 with four home runs and seven RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Twins place Nunez on the disabled list
    Twins placed INF Eduardo Nunez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 30, with a left oblique strain.

    Advice: Nunez tweaked the oblique over the weekend and tested it out during batting practice on Tuesday, to no avail. Doug Bernier's being called up to take his place on the roster. Working in a bench utility role, Nunez has only seen 22 at-bats this season, but he's made the most of them, racking up nine hits. He hit .250/.271/.382 in 201 at-bats during the 2014 campaign. There's no immediate timetable for his return. Rotoworld.com

  • Peguero smashes first homer in win over HOU
    Carlos Peguero hit his first home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Astros.

    Advice: Peguero hit the two-run shot off Astros starter Scott Feldman in the first inning. It was his only hit in three at-bats. Peguero's power has always been his calling card but just hitting for average has been the struggle. This year is no different, as he's now batting .184/.367/.368 through 19 games. Rotoworld.com

  • Johnson homers, picks up 1,000th career hit
    Kelly Johnson hit a three-run home run, then singled for his 1,000th career hit as the Braves beat the Phillies 9-0 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Johnson finished 2-for-3 with a walk. He drilled a three-run home run off of Chad Billingsley in the fourth inning to put the Braves up 6-0. In the sixth, he singled to right-center off of Elvis Araujo to earn his 1,000th career hit. Johnson's return to Atlanta has been a good one, as he's hitting .266/.319/.578 with six home runs and 17 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Pagan out of lineup with finger injury
    Angel Pagan has been scratched from Tuesday's lineup with a laceration on his left middle finger.

    Advice: Pagan injured the finger sliding into second base on Monday, cracking the nail of the finger after his hand was stepped on. Justin Maxwell will get the right field start, with Gregor Blanco moving to center. Pagan is considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com

  • Cubs place Chris Denorfia on disabled list
    Cubs placed OF Chris Denorfia on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

    Advice: Denorfia suffered the injury while running the bases in Monday's loss to the Cardinals. The 34-year-old outfielder will likely be out for the next three weeks. Rotoworld.com

  • Saunders (knee) out again Tuesday night
    Michael Saunders (knee) is out again Tuesday.

    Advice: Saunders had fluid drained from his surgically-repaired knee on Monday and the Jays intend to rest him for much of this week. The 28-year-old left fielder is batting just .222 with a .566 OPS since his debut. Rotoworld.com

  • Indians option Tyler Holt to AAA Columbus
    Indians optioned OF Tyler Holt to Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: Holt was booted off the 25-man roster Tuesday to clear a spot for Nick Swisher, who is returning from dual knee surgeries. Holt should get another shot later this year. Rotoworld.com

  • Steve Pearce out Tuesday with stomach virus
    Steve Pearce is out Tuesday with a stomach virus.

    Advice: The illness drove him from Sunday's series finale against the Rays and he's still apparently dealing with some symptoms. Pearce will aim to return on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:09 pm
  • Craig starting in left field for Red Sox
    Allen Craig is in the starting lineup and playing left field in Tuesday's game against the Rays.

    Advice: Craig homered on Friday, but he's been largely ineffective in his bench role for the Red Sox. This season, he's hitting just .146/.222/.220 in 41 at-bats. His years of hitting in the .300's for the Cardinals feel like they occurred in another lifetime. Rotoworld.com

  • Buxton delivers walk-off home run
    Twins prospect OF Byron Buxton hit a walk-off home run on Monday for Double-A Chattanooga.

    Advice: Buxton is batting .455/.513/.848 with seven extra-base hits during his current eight-game hitting streak, and he’s also scored 12 runs and gone 5-for-5 on the base paths in that span. The 21-year-old top prospect got off to a slow start offensively in the Southern League but has quickly turned things around, with a .286/.353/.527 batting line and 11 extra-base hits (3 HR, 5 3B, 3 2B) through 23 games. Provided he stays healthy, Buxton should make his highly anticipated big league debut later this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Nimmo doubles twice
    Mets prospect OF Brandon Nimmo went 3-for-5 with two doubles on Monday for Double-A Binghamton.

    Advice: The three-hit performance was Nimmo’s second in as many days, and he’s batting .372 with 16 hits in his last 10 games. The 22-year-old is off to a strong start this season in his return to Binghamton, batting .304/.375/.457 with nine extra-base hits and nine walks through 23 games. Nimmo logged 65 games in the Eastern League last summer and showed a bit more power without sacrificing his patient approach. If all goes as planned, Nimmo should split 2015 between the Double- and Triple-A levels, putting him on track to debut the following year. Rotoworld.com

  • Tapia extends hitting streak to seven games
    Rockies prospect OF Raimel Tapia went 3-for-4 with a double and scored two runs on Monday for High-A Modesto.

    Advice: Tapia pushed his hitting streak to seven games, and he’s batting .423/.484/.962 with three home runs and three doubles in that span. The 21-year-old outfielder has opened the season on a tear in the California League, with a .340/.370/.577 batting line, 16 extra-base hits and 21 RBI in 23 games. Tapia’s bat is for real, as he’s a career .319/.376/.443 hitter in 341 minor league games, but it’ll be interesting to see how his aggressive approach translates in Double-A. Rotoworld.com

  • Mets option Eric Campbell to Triple-A
    Mets optioned INF/OF Eric Campbell to Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: With David Wright (hamstring) out injured, Campbell chipped in some decent playing time. In 50 at-bats, he hit .200/.323/.320 with a home run and a pair of steals. Campbell doesn't offer much of a bat, but he does have some positional flexibility. The 28-year-old will bide his time in Vegas. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Rua transferred to 60-day DL
    Rangers transferred OF Ryan Rua to the 60-day disabled list with a foot injury.

    Advice: Rua's right foot is a bit of a mess, as he's recovering from a broken bone and a severe ankle sprain. The Rangers were hoping he would be ready to return by late May, but this is not going to be the case. Josh Hamilton has Rua's former starting job now. There's no current timetable for Rua's return.

  • Pagan's RBI single proves enough for Giants
    Angel Pagan's RBI single in the third inning proved to be the only run the Giants would need in Monday's victory against the Padres.

    Advice: One run was enough with the way Madison Bumgarner pitched for the Giants. They gave him two. Pagan came to the plate in the third inning with runners on first and second and no outs, serving a Tyson Ross offering to left-center to plate the first run of the game. The veteran outfielder has hit safely in nine out of his last 10 games and is now hitting .350/.373/.447 with eight RBI in 110 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Denorfia (hamstring) headed to DL
    Chris Denorfia (hamstring) will be placed on the disabled list prior to Tuesday's game.

    Advice: Denorfia aggravated the left hamstring injury that he's been dealing with since before Opening Day. "It's very frustrating," he said. "I've never had a recurring muscle injury like this before." Matt Szczur will be recalled to take Denorfia's spot on the roster. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Denorfia aggravates hamstring injury
    Chris Denorfia exited Monday's game versus the Cardinals after aggravating his left hamstring injury.

    Advice: He pulled up lame while going first to third on a single. Denorfia began the season on the disabled list with the hamstring issue and it's just never fully healed. He could be headed back to the DL. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Saunders has fluid drained from knee
    Michael Saunders had fluid drained from his surgically-repaired left knee on Monday.

    Advice: The Blue Jays don't seem to be overly worried about it, as while Saunders is not starting, he's available off the bench. The outfielder is batting just .222 with a .566 OPS in his first eight games back from the disabled list. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 1:37 pm
  • Saunders not in Blue Jays' lineup Monday
    Michael Saunders is out of Toronto's lineup Monday.

    Advice: It's just a day of rest for Saunders, who's batting .222 with a .566 OPS in his first eight games back from knee surgery. Danny Valencia is in left field and batting seventh for the Blue Jays on Monday night against Yankees right-hander Chase Whitley. Rotoworld.com

  • Johnson blasts fifth homer to help Braves win
    Kelly Johnson went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 5-0 victory against the Reds.

    Advice: Johnson, playing at third base in this contest, pushed the Braves' lead to 3-0 in the first inning with a two-run home run off of Johnny Cueto. He had been seeing starts in left field more recently. The utilityman has been a surprising source of offense for the Braves as he has five home runs with 13 RBI, and is batting .250/.297/.533.

  • Buxton smashes three extra-base hits Saturday
    Twins prospect Byron Buxton delivered three hits, including two triples, Saturday in a win for Double-A Chattanooga.

    Advice: Buxton is really rounding into form. MLB's top prospect has hit .522 with three RBI during his six-game hitting streak, lifting his average from a pedestrian .190 to a much more respectable .284. The 21-year-old has also been flexing his base-running muscles, stealing five bases over his last six contests. Six of Buxton's ten walks this year have come in the last week. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Rua (foot) to have exam to check healing
    Ryan Rua will undergo a scan on Friday to see how his injured right foot is healing.

    Advice: Rua is working his way back from a broken bone in his heel and severe ankle sprain. The Rangers are hoping he's ready to as soon as late May, although he no longer has a starting job following the acquisition of Josh Hamilton. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Denorfia makes first start in a while
    Chris Denorfia went 1-for-3 with a walk in his return to the lineup Saturday.

    Advice: It was his first start since April 23, as Denorfia has been battling a nagging left hamstring injury. He'll see most of his playing time versus lefties. Rotoworld.com

  • Angel Pagan leads Giants past Angels
    Angel Pagan went 2-for-3 with a sac fly in the Giants' 3-2 win over the Angels on Friday.

    Advice: Pagan is still hitting a robust .352. Questions about his back plagued him this spring, but he's been one of the Giants' best players thus far, hitting .352 in 91 at-bats. Unfortunately, he hasn't done as much for fantasy owners. Even though he's been batting third, he has just eight runs scored and seven RBI in 23 games. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:48 pm
  • Morrison homers and triples vs. Astros
    Logan Morrison was 2-for-4 with a solo homer and a triple in Friday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: It was his second home run of the season and his first triple since the 2013 season with the Marlins. Morrison has pulled his batting average up from .149 to .213 over the past three games. It's not much, but it's progress. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:01 pm
  • Craig hits first home run of season
    Allen Craig launched a solo homer Friday against the Yankees.

    Advice: It was his first home run of the season. Craig came into Friday's action hitting just .118 (4-for-34) with no extra-base hits and had yet to play right field in Fenway Park this season, but Red Sox manager John Farrell took a shot and it paid off. He's had a tough transition as a bench player and will likely only continue to see part-time at-bats. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:06 pm
  • Kelly Johnson's two-run homer powers Braves
    Kelly Johnson blasted a two-run homer in the fifth inning on Friday, powering the Braves to a 4-3 victory over the Reds.

    Advice: It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the evening, but he certainly made the most of it, lining an Anthony DeSclafani offering over the wall in right that proved to be the difference in the ballgame. He has held his own at the plate this season, slashing .250/.304/.519 with four homers and 11 RBI in 52 at-bats. Rotoworld.com

  • Saunders hitless in loss to Indians
    Michael Saunders went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts Friday against the Indians.

    Advice: Saunders, who got a late start on the season after knee surgery and a hamstring issue, is now just 2-for-20 (.100) with nine strikeouts since coming off the disabled list. Despite the early struggles, the 28-year-old is in a great position to be relevant in mixed fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 7:27 pm
  • Steve Pearce getting a start at second base
    Steve Pearce is starting at second base in Friday's game versus the Rays.

    Advice: Pearce has never played an inning at the position in the minors or majors. Jimmy Paredes has plenty of experience at second base but is bizarrely in the designated hitter spot Friday instead of Pearce. Pearce has been a big disappointment with the bat this season, hitting just .196/.288/.314 over his first 15 games. Rotoworld.com

  • Tyler Holt recalled from Triple-A

  • Denorfia (hamstring) able to pinch hit Wed.
    Chris Denorfia (hamstring) was able to pinch hit in Wednesday's loss to the Pirates.

    Advice: He flied out to center in the bottom of the fifth inning and wasn't kept in on defense. The backup outfielder missed the first two weeks of the regular season with a left hamstring strain and still has some lingering discomfort. Consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com

  • Logan Morrison goes 4-for-5, doubles
    Logan Morrison went 4-for-5 with a double and two RBI versus the Rangers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Even a four-hit game could merely raise his average to .194. Still, it's a start. It's the first time in 20 games this year that he's come up with multiple hits. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:30 pm
  • Denorfia (hamstring) unavailable on Tuesday
    Chris Denorfia (hamstring) is unavailable Tuesday.

    Advice: Denorfia missed the first two weeks of the regular season with a left hamstring strain and still isn't quite over it. "Denorfia is still not 100 percent with his leg, so I don't want to push him right now," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. Junior Lake is in left field Tuesday night. Rotoworld.com

  • Johnson hammers Nats with 3 hits, 3 RBI
    Kelly Johnson went 3-for-4 with an RBI single and a two-run home run to help lead the Braves past the Nationals on Monday.

    Advice: The utilityman got the start at left field in this one. He extended the Braves' lead to 4-1 with a two-run home run off of Doug Fister in the sixth inning, then added an RBI single in the seventh. The 33-year-old veteran has come to the plate 42 times and has homered twice with seven RBI while batting .263/.333/.526. Rotoworld.com

  • Buxton piles on four RBI for Chattanooga
    Twins prospect Byron Buxton drove in a season-high four runs Saturday for Double-A Chattanooga.

    Advice: Buxton had just three RBI all season prior to Saturday. He's still getting the hang of Double-A, though his raw talent is definitely evident. In 14 games for Chattanooga, the 21-year-old has hit .200 with 15 strikeouts in 55 at-bats. Four of his 11 hits have gone for extra bases. Rotoworld.com
