  • Correa's hot streak continues, homers in loss
    Carlos Correa homered for the fourth time in as many games, finishing 1-for-5 in a loss to the Rangers on Monday.

    Advice: Correa gave the Astros an early 2-0 lead with a first-inning home run off of Colby Lewis, but it was quickly forgotten when the opposition posted a six-spot in the bottom half. The shortstop has done nothing but hit since arriving in the major leagues, currently the proud owner of a .297/.344/.573 triple-slash line along with 13 home runs and 34 RBI in 209 plate appearances.

  • Simmons diagnosed with bone bruise in thumb
    An MRI has revealed that Andrelton Simmons has a bone bruise in his right thumb.

    Advice: Simmons suffered the injury when he tried to make a diving catch during Saturday's game. The shortstop was feeling much better on Monday and it doesn't appear at this point that the disabled list is under consideration. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:43 pm
  • Crawford homers twice, Giants lose in 12
    Brandon Crawford hit two home runs, but it wasn't enough as the Giants fell to the Braves in 12 innings on Monday.

    Advice: Crawford went back-to-back with Brandon Belt in the second inning, then added a two-run homer in the fourth inning to send the Giants' lead to 6-0. They accounted for both of his hits in five at-bats. The shortstop has put up terrific numbers this season, batting .266/.328/.492 with 18 home runs and 67 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:18 pm
  • Ahmed homers in 4-hit night as D'Backs win
    Nick Ahmed went 4-for-4 with a solo home run as the Diamondbacks beat the Nationals on Monday.

    Advice: Ahmed broke a scoreless tie in the top of the third inning with a solo home run off of Doug Fister. It was one of four Arizona homers on the evening. The shortstop hasn't exactly been an offensive dynamo, as Monday's performance still leaves him with a lackluster .232/.289/.348 batting line along with seven home runs and 26 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:47 pm
  • Andrelton Simmons (thumb) feels much better
    Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said that Andrelton Simmons experienced a "really big improvement" with his sprained right thumb from Sunday to Monday.

    Advice: Dr. Gary Laurie still needs to read the results of Simmons' MRI before more is known on his status, but it's sounding like the shortstop has a shot to avoid the disabled list. Simmons suffered the injury after trying to make a diving catch during Saturday's game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:34 pm
  • Jose Ramirez recalled from Triple-A
    Indians recalled INF Jose Ramirez from Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: Ramirez lost his shortstop job when Francisco Lindor was promoted but should see some time at second base while Jason Kipnis (shoulder) is out. He's hit only .176/.243/.235 in the majors this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:36 pm
  • Giants promote Kelby Tomlinson from AAA
    Giants purchased the contract of INF Kelby Tomlinson from Triple-A Sacramento.

    Advice: Tomlinson has hit .321/.376/.414 with 21 stolen bases in 97 games this season between Double-A and Triple-A. He'll provide much-needed depth at second base for the Giants, who just lost Joe Panik to lingering lower back inflammation. Tomlinson could have short-term fantasy value if he fights his way into everyday at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:30 pm
  • Peraza hits first homer for Oklahoma City
    Dodgers 2B prospect Jose Peraza provided three hits in Sunday's doubleheader for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: One of the hits included his first home run as a member of the Dodgers organization. He also stole his 27th base and drove in a pair of runs. Peraza has gone 9-for-23 (.391) during his six-game hitting streak. The 21-year-old joined the Dodgers last week as part of a three-team swap with Atlanta and Miami. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:16 pm

  • Difo comes through with career-high five hits
    Nationals SS prospect Wilmer Difo contributed a career-high five hits in Sunday's win for Double-A Harrisburg.

    Advice: He also stole a career-high four bases. Difo entered Sunday's game just two for his last 16. Few could have predicted Difo's meteoric rise through the Washington farm system. He began the year at High-A Potomac and has already seen time with the Nationals this season. The 23-year-old has hit .283 with a .332 on base percentage in 300 minor league at-bats this year.

  • Simmons will undergo MRI on injured thumb
    Andrelton Simmons will undergo an MRI on his injured right thumb Monday in Atlanta.

    Advice: It's being called a sprain for now, but there's some concern that the injury is more severe. "I'm hoping, but I'm always a glass half-full kind of guy," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Sunday when asked whether his shortstop is facing an extended absence. Simmons suffered the thumb injury Saturday while diving for a ball. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:27 am
  • Corey Seager goes off for four hits Saturday
    Dodgers SS prospect Corey Seager recorded four hits in Saturday's win for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: It was Seager's first four-hit game since May 28. He entered Saturday's game in a 4-for-33 slump and has only hit .241 in 79 at-bats since July 1. Seager remains a fascinating prospect and should arrive in the majors no later than 2016. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:52 pm

  • Russell hits seventh homer to help fuel Cubs
    Addison Russell went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Russell took a Kyle Lohse offering for a ride in the second inning to notch his seventh home run of the season. In 299 at-bats this season, he's hitting .237/.303/.368 with 27 RBI and the seven long balls. At 21 years old, Russell is not a finished product yet. Those in keeper formats should just stay the course until he's had more time to develop. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:51 pm
  • Zobrist homers again, but Royals fall to TOR
    Ben Zobrist supplied a two-run home run and walked in four plate appearances in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Zobrist went yard twice on Saturday, and added another in his fourth game as a Royal. His two-run blast in the eighth inning brought the Royals to within a run at 3-2. Zobrist is batting .272/.355/.480 with nine home runs and 39 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:02 pm

  • Hechavarria launches walk-off homer vs Padres
    Adeiny Hechavarria ended Sunday's 5-2 win over the Padres with a walk-off three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning.

    Advice: Padres reliever Brandon Maurer was his own worst enemy on Sunday, walking two in the ninth inning before serving up the three-run homer with one out. The homer was Hechavarria's fifth of the season. He's hitting .279/.311/.375 with the five taters and 42 RBI. Most of that production came in April and he's cooled off after a hot start. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:41 pm
  • Amarista socks homer to tie MIA in ninth
    Alexi Amarista went 2-for-4 with a triple and a game-tying two-run home run in the ninth inning of Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: Amarista's triple is notable for the fact that it was the only extra-base hit allowed by Marlins starter Jose Fernandez. After Fernandez left the game, the Padres looked dead in the water until the ninth inning, when Amarista struck like lightning, belting a two-run homer off reliever A.J. Ramos with one out to tie the proceedings at two-all. The big offensive showing is all the more surprising for the fact that Amarista was dealing with an 0-for-24 skid prior to his triple. He's batting just .201/.267/.293 with three home runs and 23 RBI this season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:32 pm

  • Simmons diagnosed with sprained thumb
    Andrelton Simmons has been diagnosed with a sprained right thumb.

    Advice: Simmons was injured on Saturday when he jammed the thumb on a play in left field. It looks like he'll avoid the disabled list for now, as the Braves are hopeful he'll only miss a few games. Daniel Castro is filling in at shortstop Sunday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:08 am
  • Hanley Ramirez (shin) plates run in return
    Hanley Ramirez (shin) singled and had a sac fly in his return to the lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Ramirez sat out Friday's game with a shin injury, but he's fine. He's sporting a .263/.305/.451 batting line with 19 homers and 50 RBI this season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:36 am
  • Marcus Semien homers, walks against Indians
    Marcus Semien homered, walked and scored twice against the Indians on Saturday.

    Advice: Semien has more errors (29) than RBI (23) or walks (25) this year, yet he still has an OPS (.670) right at the league average for shortstops. It's about as weird of a bad season as one could dream up. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:52 pm

  • Andrelton Simmons leaves with thumb injury
    Andrelton Simmons left Saturday's game against the Phillies after jamming his right thumb on a play in left field.

    Advice: Daniel Castro replaced him in the eighth inning. His X-rays came back negative but the soreness could keep Simmons out for a few days. He was hitless in three at-bats before exiting. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:11 pm
  • Zobrist clubs two homers as Royals top Jays
    Ben Zobrist clubbed a pair of solo home runs on Saturday, leading the Royals to a 7-6 victory over the Blue Jays in Toronto.

    Advice: Zobrist got the scoring started with a solo shot off Jays starter Mark Buehrle in the first inning. He then took Mark Lowe deep in the eighth inning, tying the game at 5-5 and igniting a rally that would lead the Royals to victory. He also doubled in the ballgame, finishing the afternoon 3-for-4 with three runs scored. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:41 pm

  • Crawford hits 16th home run in loss
    Brandon Crawford launched a solo homer in Friday's loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: It was his 16th home run of the season and his fourth in his last nine games. The 28-year-old has been a surprising force at the shortstop position this season, batting .268/.331/.481 across 99 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:51 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez (shin) not in lineup Friday
    Hanley Ramirez (shin) is not in the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Ramirez injured his shin during Thursday's game. He's considered day-to-day. Alejandro De Aza is in left field Friday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:23 pm
  • Dodgers acquire Jose Peraza in huge trade
    Dodgers acquired UTIL Jose Peraza from the Braves in the 13-player, three-team Hector Olivera trade.

    Advice: Peraza entered the 2015 season as a consensus top-100 prospect, but some of that shine has worn off. As of Thursday's official trade announcement, he was batting just .294/.318/.379 in 96 games at Triple-A Gwinnett. The 21-year-old has played second base, shortstop, and center field in the minor leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:24 pm

  • Jose Peraza would be included in Dodgers deal
    Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that Jose Peraza would head to the Dodgers in the rumored three-team deal with the Marlins.

    Advice: As it currently stands, the Dodgers would receive Peraza, Alex Wood and Jim Johnson from the Braves plus Mat Latos and Michael Morse from the Marlins. The Braves would receive Hector Olivera, Zach Bird and a compensation pick, while the Marlins would acquire three low-level minor league pitchers. There are still hurdles to clear, so don't expect anything to be finalized until Thursday at the earliest. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:54 pm

  • Correa homers, has three hits against Angels
    Carlos Correa went 3-for-4 with a home run in Tuesday's win over the Angels.

    Advice: The homer, a solo shot in the first inning, was Correa's ninth in 42 games this season. The 20-year-old has hits in 11 of his past 12 games as he settles in at the major league level. Correa is batting .299/.350/.545 with 28 RBI, 25 runs scored and five steals to go with his nine homers. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:34 pm
  • Royals pick up Ben Zobrist from Athletics
    Royals acquired INF/OF Ben Zobrist and cash considerations from the Athletics for RHP Aaron Brooks and LHP Sean Manaea.

    Advice: The deal is official. Zobrist drew interest from a long list of contenders, but the Royals are going for it and paid the price to bring to bring him into the fold. The 34-year-old impending free agent has an .801 OPS over 67 games this season and can be used in the infield and the outfield. He should be a useful piece for Ned Yost and the first-place Royals.

  • Royals to acquire Ben Zobrist from A's
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Royals are set to acquire Ben Zobrist from the Athletics.

    Advice: Just in case it wasn't already clear after the Johnny Cueto deal, the Royals are going for it. Zobrist was a great fit for any contender because of his versatility and he could play second base or left field for Kansas City. The 34-year-old is batting .268/.354/.447 with six home runs and 33 RBI over 67 games this season. Jeff Passan of Yahoo sports hears that the Royals will send two pitchers back to Oakland in the deal. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:32 am

    Jane Lee of MLB.com reports that the Athletics are "deep" in trade talks involving Ben Zobrist and a deal could happen soon.

    Advice: After dealing Scott Kazmir to the Astros last week and Tyler Clippard to the Mets on Monday, Zobrist is likely the next to go.

  • Crawford homers as Giants top the Brewers
    Brandon Crawford homered and walked in a 1-for-2 effort on Monday as the Giants defeated the Brewers.

    Advice: Crawford delivered a two-run home run off of Kyle Lohse in the third inning, pushing the Giants' lead to 3-0. He's on a six-game hitting streak, currently standing with a .270/.336/.481 batting line along with 15 home runs and 61 RBI. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:56 pm
  • Mets asked Braves about Andrelton Simmons
    According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the Mets asked the Braves about the availability of shortstop Andrelton Simmons, but "the conversation went nowhere."

    Advice: Olney says Atlanta "placed an unreachable price tag" on the 25-year-old. Simmons hasn't developed offensively as quickly as many were hoping, but he's a generational type of talent defensively and the kind of player the rebuilding Braves want to build around. Simmons is under contract with Atlanta through 2020 at some fairly reasonable rates. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:44 am
  • KC staying locked in on Ben Zobrist market
    Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports that the Royals are planning to stay locked in on the Ben Zobrist trade talks "until the end."

    Advice: Zobrist is a fit for just about every contending team because of his defensive versatility, so it's anyone's guess at this point where he's going to wind up after the July 31 trade deadline. Kansas City made the biggest splash yet with its weekend acquisition of Reds ace Johnny Cueto, but McCullough notes that the club still has shoppable prospects. If it wasn't already apparent, the Royals are going all-in. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:27 am
