  • Jansen allows a run following his first walk
    Kenley Jansen allowed a run but still snagged his 12th save of the season as the Dodgers pulled out a 6-4 victory in 10 innings against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

    Advice: With two outs, Jansen issued his first walk of the season to his 56th batter. Paul Goldschmidt then punished him for the walk with an RBI double. Jansen bounced back to strike out Yasmany Tomas to end the game. The right-hander is 12-for-13 in save chances this season with a 1.08 ERA and a 28/1 K/BB ratio in 16 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com

  • Frias goes 5 innings in no-decision vs DBacks
    Carlos Frias allowed three runs in five innings, getting a no-decision as the Dodgers needed 10 innings to fend off the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

    Advice: Frias gave up seven hits and walked three while striking out only one batter. Nick Ahmed struck the big blow in the fourth inning with a two-run home run. Things could've gone a lot worse for Frias. The young right-hander now owns a 4.39 ERA with a 1.55 WHIP and a 40/24 K/BB ratio in 69 2/3 innings. He'll have a decent match-up his next time out as he'll face the Phillies at home. Rotoworld.com

  • Bassitt pitches well in relief of Sonny Gray
    Chris Bassitt, making a spot start, limited the Rockies to one run in five innings, but suffered a tough luck loss on Tuesday.

    Advice: Sonny Gray was scratched due to an illness, so Bassitt was called up from Triple-A Nashville. The right-hander scattered five hits, walked none, and struck out three in the effort. As Gray will presumably be over his illness soon, Bassitt is likely headed back to Triple-A. Rotoworld.com

  • De La Rosa blanks the A's over seven frames
    Jorge De La Rosa kept the Athletics off the board over seven innings en route to a win on Tuesday.

    Advice: De La Rosa worked his way around four hits and four walks to keep the A's scoreless. Aside from one poor start against the Brewers, the lefty had a great June, ending the month with a 3.16 ERA across six starts. On the season, he has a 4.59 ERA with a 1.48 WHIP and a 60/35 K/BB ratio in 64 2/3 innings. De La Rosa will start on the road against the Diamondbacks next. Rotoworld.com

  • Nova allows two solo homers to take a loss
    Ivan Nova allowed two solo home runs, proving to be his undoing over 5 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: They both came in the sixth inning, back-to-back shots from Albert Pujols and Erick Aybar. Nova struck out David Freese, but then allowed a double to Matt Joyce to end his evening. He gave up eight hits and two walks overall while striking out seven. The right-hander has been solid in two starts since being activated, as he pitched 6 2/3 innings of shutout ball against the Phillies in his previous start. Nova will face the Athletics at home next.

  • Teixeira's 19th HR serves as Yanks' only run
    Mark Teixeira provided the Yankees their only run in Tuesday's loss against the Angels.

    Advice: It was a solo home run to left-center off of Andrew Heaney, one of only two Yankee hits on the evening. He finished 1-for-2 with a walk. Teixeira hadn't homered since June 15, but has 19 on the season with 54 RBI and a .246/.359/.536 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com

  • Pujols rips 24th home run as Angels edge NYY
    Albert Pujols went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, helping the Angels edge the Yankees on Tuesday.

    Advice: Pujols tied the game at 1-1 when he ripped a solo home run to straightaway center field off of Ivan Nova. He has 24 on the season and seems like a good bet to cross the 40-homer threshold by season's end, which would be the first time he will have done that since 2010. Pujols has also knocked in 49 runs while batting .265/.332/.558. Rotoworld.com

  • Solarte prevents Padres from getting no-hit
    Yangervis Solarte gave the Padres reason to smile in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners, as his seventh-inning double prevented a no-hitter.

    Advice: Mariners starter Mike Montgomery hadn't allowed a hit with one out in the seventh inning when Solarte stepped to the plate. He saved his team from ignominy with a double, but he was ultimately stranded. Solarte had consecutive multi-hit games coming into Tuesday, but otherwise hasn't done much at the plate in 2015, batting .247/.299/.344 with two home runs and 28 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Nunez' three-hit night leads Twins past Reds
    Eduardo Nunez finished 3-for-4 with an RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base as the Twins trumped the Reds 8-5 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Nunez and the Twins racked up 15 hits against Anthony DeSclafani and the Reds bullpen. The shortstop had three of them, collecting two singles and a double. He also stole his third base of the season. Nunez' usage has been inexplicable at times -- the light-hitting shortstop has served as the team's designated hitter in 11 games this year -- but he's put up decent numbers through 33 games, hitting .305/.350/.516 with 11 RBI and 13 runs scored. Perhaps he'll begin garnering more of the playing time at short with his hot hitting. Rotoworld.com

  • Suarez blasts second home run against Twins
    Eugenio Suarez hit his second home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Twins.

    Advice: Suarez hit a solo shot off Phil Hughes in the third inning to get the Reds on the board. The homer was his second in 17 games this season. Suarez took over for Zack Cozart at shortstop and has held his own, hitting .328/.369/.475. Despite that, his offensive upside is limited and he can be ignored in most fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:34 pm
  • Mauer collects two RBI in win over Reds
    Joe Mauer went 2-for-3 with two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Mauer scored a run with a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning before adding an RBI single in the eighth. It was Mauer's first multi-RBI game since June 5, as he totaled nine RBI for the month of June. The multi-hit game was just his fifth this month. With Tuesday's game, Mauer is now hitting .263/.334/.370 with 39 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:32 pm
  • DeSclafani allows 11 hits, six runs in loss
    Anthony DeSclafani allowed six runs on 11 hits over 6 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Twins.

    Advice: DeSclafani managed to stay mostly dry through the first six innings, allowing three runs but keeping the Twins from putting up a crooked number, but things didn't go so well in the seventh. Two inherited runners being allowed to score didn't help his cause. On the bright side, he did strike out seven in the effort. The loss dropped DeSclafani to 5-6 with a 3.68 ERA and 1.35 WHIP through 16 starts. The 25-year-old will try to bounce back Monday at the Nationals. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodriguez sees way out of trouble to beat PHI
    Francisco Rodriguez saw his way out of trouble to pick up his 17th save as the Brewers wrapped up a 4-3 victory against the Phillies on Tuesday.

    Advice: Rodriguez walked Ben Revere to start the inning, then saw Cesar Hernandez reach base when Jonathan Lucroy made a poor throw to second base following a bunt. With two on and nobody out, Rodriguez struck out Maikel Franco, got Andres Blanco to weakly fly out, and struck out Jeff Francoeur to end the game. His record remains unblemished, earning the save in all 17 chances with a 1.50 ERA and a 36/9 K/BB ratio in 30 innings. Rotoworld.com

  • Grichuk homers among three hits vs. White Sox
    Randal Grichuk went 3-for-5 with a home run in a loss against the White Sox on Tuesday.

    Advice: Grichuk had three of the Cardinals' eight hits on the evening, including the homer off Sox ace Chris Sale in the fourth inning. Grichuk also doubled in the game, falling a triple shy of the cycle. The outfielder has gotten regular playing time in the absence of Matt Holliday and has thrived, hitting .284/.318/.574 with seven homers, 21 RBI and 23 runs scored in 46 games. The club may have to find more opportunities for him when Holliday returns in July. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:00 pm
  • Flowers hits game-winning homer in extras
    Tyler Flowers hit a solo home run in the 11th inning to lead the White Sox to a 2-1 win over the Cardinals on Tuesday.

    Advice: Flowers took reliever Miguel Socolovich deep to break a 1-1 tie. The catcher finished 2-for-5 in the game. The homer was his sixth of the season and his second in as many games. Flowers is hitting .217/.268/.369 while splitting time behind the dish for the Sox. Rotoworld.com

  • A's recall RHP Bassitt from Triple-A
    Athletics recalled RHP Chris Bassitt from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: The A's have yet to announce a corresponding roster move. Bassitt will start against the Rockies on Tuesday in place of Sonny Gray, who was scratched due to illness. The 26-year-old has posted a 3.71 ERA and 64/18 K/BB ratio over 63 innings this season in Triple-A. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:32 pm
  • A's calling up Bassitt to start Tuesday
    The Athletics are calling up right-hander Chris Bassitt from Triple-A Nashville to start Tuesday against the Rockies.

    Advice: Sonny Gray has been scratched from the assignment. Bassitt, 26, owns a 3.71 ERA and 64/18 K/BB ratio over 63 innings this season in Triple-A. Rotoworld.com

  • Suarez knocks in 3 runs, steals two bases
    Eugenio Suarez went 3-for-5 with a double, three RBI, and two stolen bases as the Reds held on to beat the Twins on Monday.

    Advice: Suarez had logged four straight multi-hit games between June 21-25 and did it again on Monday. He doubled in two runs in the third inning and singled in a run in the sixth in a slugfest. Suarez is filling in for the injured Zack Cozart and has done well thus far, batting .316/.361/.421 with nine RBI and three stolen bases in 62 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodriguez slams door on Phils for 16th save
    Francisco Rodriguez kept the Phillies off the board in the ninth inning to pick up his 16th save as the Brewers won 7-4 on Monday.

    Advice: Rodriguez got consecutive ground outs from Cody Asche and Cameron Rupp, but Freddy Galvis kept hope alive with a single. "K-Rod" then struck out Darin Ruf to end the game. Contending teams are surely noting the fact that the right-hander has converted all 16 save opportunities thus far with a 1.55 ERA and a 34/8 K/BB ratio over 29 innings. Rotoworld.com

  • Jansen works around leadoff 2B for 11th save
    Kenley Jansen allowed a leadoff double, but worked around it for his 11th save in Sunday's 2-0 win against the Marlins.

    Advice: Christian Yelich greeted Jansen with a leadoff double, which allowed the Marlins to bring the potential tying run to the plate on three separate occasions. Jansen struck out Adeiny Hechavarria and Marcell Ozuna consecutively before getting Derek Dietrich to foul out to end the contest. Jansen has been utterly dominant since debuting in mid-May, now 11-for-12 in save opportunities with a 0.57 ERA and a 26/0 K/BB ratio in 15 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 1:20 pm
  • Anthony DeSclafini gives up one earned run
    Anthony DeSclafini surrendered four runs -- one earned -- in six innings Thursday against the Pirates.

    Advice: A Eugenio Suarez error fueled the three-run second inning, but it's still on DeSclafini that he gave up a two-run single to A.J. Burnett afterwards. DeSclafini ended up allowing six hits, walking two and striking out five. He hit a little rough patch in the first half of May, but he has a 2.89 ERA over his last seven starts. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:02 pm
  • Frias spins 5 shutout frames to beat the Cubs
    Carlos Frias hurled five innings of shutout ball to earn a win versus the Cubs on Thursday.

    Advice: Frias, on 82 pitches, worked around seven hits and three walks with five strikeouts to keep the Cubs off the board. The 25-year-old right-hander has been more miss than hit lately for fantasy purposes and should continue to be passed over despite Thursday's results. He has a 4.31 ERA, a 1.52 WHIP, and a 39/21 K/BB ratio over 64 2/3 innings. Frias will face the Diamondbacks in Arizona next. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 2:54 pm
  • Jorge De La Rosa exits game with finger issue
    Jorge De La Rosa left Thursday's start against the Diamondbacks after five innings due to a finger injury.

    Advice: It's the same injury he's been dealing with for a few weeks now. De La Rosa tossed five scoreless innings before exiting and allowed four hits and three walks while striking out three. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 1:57 pm
  • K-Rod slams door on Mets for his 15th save
    Francisco Rodriguez kept the Mets off the board in the ninth inning, grabbing his 15th save as the Brewers won 4-1 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Rodriguez got back-to-back ground outs from Michael Cuddyer and Curtis Granderson before Ruben Tejada kept the Mets' hopes alive with a double. However, Rodriguez rebounded to strike out Lucas Duda to end the game. He has yet to blow a save in 15 opportunities and now has an even 1.00 ERA with a 32/7 K/BB ratio over 27 innings. Fantasy owners are hoping the Brewers are able to move him to a contender to boost the frequency of his save chances. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:54 pm
  • Nova shuts down Phillies in return from TJS
    Ivan Nova delivered 6 2/3 shutout innings Wednesday in the Yankees' 10-2 pounding of the Phillies.

    Advice: It was Nova's first major league start since undergoing Tommy John surgery last April and he looked as sharp as anyone could have hoped for, yielding only three hits and two walks while pitching into the seventh inning. Now we'll see how he handles a real offense next week in Anaheim. Expectations should be tempered as Nova works back to full strength, though he could make for a decent fantasy streamer in the right matchups. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 1:30 pm
  • Teixeira drives home two in return Wednesday
    Mark Teixeira finished 3-for-5 with two RBI in the Yankees' rout of the Phillies on Wednesday.

    Advice: That cortisone shot for his neck injury apparently did the trick. All of Teixeira's hits were singles, but he drove in one run in the Yankees' three-run fourth inning and another run in the Yankees' four-run seventh inning. The veteran first baseman is batting .259/.369/.557 with 51 RBI in 66 games this season. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 1:25 pm
  • Ivan Nova (elbow) returns from disabled list
    Yankees activated RHP Ivan Nova from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Nova will make his season debut on Wednesday versus the Phillies after successfully completing his rehab from Tommy John surgery. It's a nice first matchup for the right-hander, but fantasy owners might want to him him a start or two before sticking him into their lineup. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:49 am
  • Mark Teixeira (neck) returns to lineup Wed.
    Mark Teixeira (neck) is back in the Yankees' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Teixeira was given a cortisone shot to combat his ailing neck and was cleared to return to action after testing things out in batting practice. The Yankees' first baseman is tied for fourth in the American League with 18 home runs this season. Rotoworld.com

  • K-Rod slams door vs. Mets to earn 14th save
    Francisco Rodriguez tossed a perfect ninth inning Tuesday to close out the Brewers' 3-2 win over the Mets.

    Advice: K-Rod struck out two in his scoreless inning of work. The right-hander has yet to blow a save this season, going a perfect 14-for-14 in save opportunities. The 33-year-old has been one of the few bright spots for the lowly Brewers this year, owning a 1.04 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 31/7 K/BB ratio over 26 innings. Rotoworld.com

    Albert Pujols blasted another pair of home runs, powering the Angels past the Astros on Monday in a 2-for-3 effort.

    Advice: Pujols' first homer, a two-run shot off of Brett Oberholtzer, gave the Angels a 2-1 lead in the fifth inning. He homered again in the seventh to make it 3-1.

  • Teixeira (neck) expected to be out until Wed.
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi doesn't expect Mark Teixeira (neck) back in the lineup until at least Wednesday.

    Advice: Teixeira has been bothered by a neck issue for about 10 days and was sent for an MRI. He's sitting out Monday and will be on the bench Tuesday, as well. "It's hard to turn," Girardi said. "I think we've all experienced that. It can be frustrating, and it's irritating. It's something that's tough to play in, because obviously they have to turn a lot in this game." Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 4:53 pm
  • Nova (elbow) to make season debut Wednesday
    Ivan Nova (elbow) will make his season debut on Wednesday against the Phillies.

    Advice: Nova was knocked around in his final rehab start, but he's feeling healthy and showing good velocity so the Yankees are ready to stick him back into their rotation. The club will go with a six-man rotation for at least one turn, so Nathan Eovaldi and Adam Warren are both safe for now. Fantasy owners should probably give Nova at least a start or two before putting him back into their lineups. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 1:05 pm
  • Teixeira out Monday, undergoing MRI on neck
    Mark Teixeira is out of the Yankees' lineup on Monday because of lingering stiffness in his neck.

    Advice: Garrett Jones is starting at first base and batting sixth against Phillies right-hander Kevin Correia. Teixeira boasts a stellar .920 OPS with 18 home runs and 49 RBI in 65 games this season, but this neck issue won't seem to go away. He is undergoing an MRI. Rotoworld.com
