  • Bobby Parnell (elbow) to throw off mound
    Bobby Parnell (elbow) will throw a bullpen session this week in New York in front of Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen.

    Advice: Parnell has been limited to flat-ground work for a few weeks while battling forearm soreness. Assuming the side session goes well, he'll be cleared to resume his rehab assignment. There's no timetable for Parnell's return to the Mets' bullpen. Rotoworld.com

  • Chase Headley sat out with back issue
    Chase Headley wasn't in Tuesday's lineup due to a sore back.

    Advice: The Yankees think maybe he's a little sore after diving on Toronto's artificial turf Monday. There's no concern, though, as Headley is expected to be back in the lineup Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Jean Segura hitless in return to lineup
    Jean Segura went hitless in three at-bats in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Segura was hit on the helmet by a Pedro Strop fastball on Sunday, but he wound up missing just one game. The shortstop is batting .280/.314/.370 so far this season. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 6:29 am
  • Adam Eaton returns to action Tuesday
    Adam Eaton doubled and scored a run in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Eaton missed the previous three contests while battling the flu. He's hitting a disappointing .195/.241/.268 this season. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 6:27 am
  • Stewart confirms Salty on Diamondbacks' radar
    Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart confirmed that the club has interest in Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

    Advice: "He's a player that we're going to talk a little bit more in-depth about," Stewart said Tuesday. "I have to see what our scouts are saying and talk to our internal guys, and if it makes sense then we'll make the next step." Saltalamacchia, who was officially released by the Marlins on Tuesday, makes a lot of sense as an upgrade over Tuffy Gosewisch. The D'Backs can get him cheaply now that his old $21 million contract is off the books. They're not the only squad that's interested, however, as Sportsnet's Ben Nicholson-Smith says "a few teams" are in the mix. The Royals, Indians and Mariners have also been connected to Salty.

  • Royals activate Holland from disabled list
    Royals activated RHP Greg Holland from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Holland has been on the shelf since April 18 with a pectoral strain but threw a simulated game over the weekend and is ready to go. He'll slide back into his closer's role, pushing Wade Davis to the eighth inning. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 5:30 am
  • Rosenthal earns ninth save in win over Cubs
    Trevor Rosenthal earned his ninth save of the season with a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Rosenthal got a couple quick ground ball outs before Starlin Castro singled to add some intrigue. Rosenthal got Junior Lake swinging, though, to end any potential threat. It was a nice rebound for Rosenthal after he sustained his first blown save of the season his last time out. The right-hander owns a strong 1.32 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 17/6 K/BB ratio over 13 2/3 innings this year. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:05 pm
  • Russell doubles twice in loss to Cardinals
    Addison Russell went 2-for-3 with two doubles and a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Russell hit a couple balls hard, barely missing a home run off Tyler Lyons in the Cubs' three-run fifth inning. He's got a modest eight-game hitting streak going, raising his line to .261/.292/.500. The 21-year-old is ultra-talented and shouldn't toil at the bottom of Cubs manager Joe Maddon's lineup card for long. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:01 pm
  • 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
    Yesterday, 10:00 pm
  • Wong turns in third straight multi-hit game
    Kolten Wong delivered another multi-hit game Tuesday, finishing 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Cubs.

    Advice: Wong doubled and scored in the fifth, singled and scored in the sixth and beat out an infield hit for an RBI single in the seventh. He's got eight hits in his last 12 at-bats as he's turned in three straight multi-hit outings. The hit binge has his overall line up to .323/.363/.462. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:58 pm
  • Pujols hits 5th homer as Angels top Mariners
    Albert Pujols went 2-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Mariners.

    Advice: Pujols gave the Angels an early 2-0 lead when he drove a James Paxton offering to left-center in the first inning. It's the 525th homer of Pujols' career. He's 18th on the all-time home run leaderboard, nine shy of tying Jimmie Foxx at 534. The first baseman is batting .239/.314/.435 with five home runs and 12 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:57 pm
  • Cashner falls to 1-5, allows six runs to SFG
    Andrew Cashner suffered his fifth loss of the season after yielding six runs (four earned) in six innings against the Giants on Tuesday.

    Advice: Six of the seven hits Cashner allowed were singles, but he walked three and was hurt by a pair of errors in the third inning as well. He struck out three in the outing. Interestingly, the right-hander has allowed 23 runs on the season, but only 13 of them are earned runs. He has a 3.16 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP, and a 39/11 K/BB ratio in 37 innings. Cashner will close out a road series in Arizona against the Diamondbacks next. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:45 pm
  • Vogelsong tosses 7 scoreless to beat Padres
    Ryan Vogelsong delivered seven scoreless innings to earn a win versus the Padres on Tuesday.

    Advice: Vogelsong had not performed well in two relief appearances and three starts coming into Tuesday's outing, but he managed to shut down the Padres, claiming ownership of baseball's best offense. The right-hander held them to three hits (all singles) and two walks while striking out four. The sterling performance lowers his ERA to 6.84 and his WHIP to 1.67 with a 21/13 K/BB ratio in 26 1/3 innings. Vogelsong will look for a repeat performance in a home start against the Marlins next. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:42 pm
  • Chavez stifles Twins over 7 1/3 to earn win
    Jesse Chavez kept the Twins largely under wraps Tuesday, allowing only an unearned run over 7 1/3 innings in the Athletics' 2-1 victory.

    Advice: Chavez gave the Twins nothing all night, surrendering only four singles and one walk in the outing. He struck out seven on the evening. Things got a little dicey -- an error led to a run and Tyler Clippard had to work out of a jam in the eighth inning to retain the lead -- but the A's held on to give Chavez his first win. He'll try to keep his strong start to the season going Sunday at the Mariners. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:14 pm
  • Butler has two hits, RBI in win over Twins
    Billy Butler went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

    Advice: Butler broke out of a slump with the two-hit night, as he'd had just three hits in his previous 40 at-bats coming into the game. The RBI single in the first inning gave Butler 13 RBI on the season to go with a .267/.325/.400 line on the year. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Holland (pectoral) to be activated Wednesday
    Greg Holland (pectoral) will be activated Wednesday.

    Advice: The initial plan called for Holland to be activated Tuesday, but the Royals will give their closer one extra day of rest before throwing him back into the fire. Holland has been on the shelf since April 18 with a pectoral strain. He'll push Wade Davis back into a setup role. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:05 pm
  • Marlins release catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia
    Marlins released C Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

    Advice: This confirms a report from CBS Sports' Jon Heyman. The Marlins expressed optimism for finding a trade partner after they designated Saltalamacchia for assignment last week, but nothing has materialized. This means that the Marlins will be responsible for the remainder of his three-year, $21 million contract and he'll be free to sign with another club at the major league minimum. He should have no shortage of suitors as a free agent. The Royals, Rays, and Diamondbacks are among the teams who have been mentioned as possibilities. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:18 am
  • Russell's 9th-inning homer barely not enough
    Addison Russell clubbed a solo home run in the ninth inning, but it was just barely not enough as the Cubs were beat by the slimmest of margins by the Cardinals on Monday.

    Advice: The Cubs entered the ninth down 10-8. With two outs, Russell belted a solo home run to left-center off of Seth Maness, but it couldn't spark anything else. Russell has hit safely in nine of 11 games since his promotion, but has a meager .233/.250/.442 triple-slash line with two home runs and seven RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:00 pm
  • Jean Segura (head) expected back Tuesday
    Jean Segura (head) is expected to return to the Brewers' lineup on Tuesday.

    Advice: Segura was hit on the helmet by a Pedro Strop fastball on Sunday, but he'll wind up missing just one game. The young shortstop is sporting a .289/.324/.381 batting line with one homer and five stolen bases this season. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:01 pm
  • Segura (head) not in Brewers' lineup Monday
    Jean Segura (head) is out of the Brewers' starting lineup on Monday night versus the Dodgers.

    Advice: Not a surprise after he took a Pedro Strop fastball off his helmet on Sunday afternoon. Segura passed a CT scan, but he probably won't have a very active week. Hector Gomez is starting at shortstop Monday in what will be Craig Counsell's first game as Milwaukee's manager. Clayton Kershaw is on the bump for the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 12:14 pm
  • CT scan results negative on Segura's head
    Jean Segura's CT scan turned up negative.

    Advice: Segura got drilled in the helmet by a Pedro Strop fastball on Sunday afternoon and was shaken up after the game, but it seems he avoided a serious injury and might not even need a disabled list stint. There should be more on his status Monday evening. The 25-year-old shortstop is batting .289/.324/.381 with one home run and five stolen bases in 25 games this season. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:08 am
  • Wong's walkoff HR leads Cardinals to sweep
    Kolten Wong cranked a walkoff solo home run in the bottom of the 14th inning as the Cardinals defeated the visiting Pirates 3-2 on Sunday afternoon.

    Advice: Wong didn't start the game, but he finished 3-for-4 after entering as part of a double-switch in the top of the eighth inning. And his heroic blast to right field in the 14th secured a three-game sweep for the Cardinals, who have the best record in baseball at 18-6. Wong, 24, is batting .294/.340/.435 with two home runs and two stolen bases in 24 games this season. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 3:52 pm
  • Rosenthal blows first save but Cardinals win
    Trevor Rosenthal blew his first save of the season Sunday in the Cardinals' 14-inning win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Rosenthal entered in the top of the ninth inning with the Cardinals leading 1-0 and promptly gave up a game-tying solo blast to Jung Ho Kang. It was the Korean shortstop's first major league homer. Rosenthal kept the damage at one run and the Cardinals won it in the bottom of the 14th. He still owns an impressive 1.42 ERA in 12 2/3 innings this season and should remain a top-tier fantasy closer all summer on another good St. Louis team. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 3:48 pm
  • Jean Segura (head) leaves after hit by pitch
    Jean Segura left Sunday's game against the Cubs after he was drilled in the helmet by a Pedro Strop pitch.

    Advice: Segura was shaken up, but was able to walk down to first base afterwards and attempted to convince trainers that he was able to remain in the game. He'll have to go through the regular concussion protocol, but should be able to return to action early in the week. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 1:53 pm
  • Billy Butler not in Sunday's lineup
    Billy Butler is not in the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's simply a day of rest. Mark Canha is in the designated hitter spot Sunday in Butler's place. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 9:02 am
  • Kolten Wong sitting out on Sunday
    Kolten Wong is absent from the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Wong suffered a minor wrist injury on Saturday, but he stayed the game so this just looks like a day off. Pete Kozma is at second base Sunday in his place. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 8:36 am
  • Adam Eaton (illness) still out Sunday
    Adam Eaton (illness) remained out of the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's now poised to miss the entire three-game set in Minnesota. Eaton should be ready to go after Monday's off day. J.B. Shuck is in center field again Sunday in Eaton's place. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 8:33 am
  • Holland (pectoral) expected to return Tuesday
    Greg Holland (pectoral) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.

    Advice: Holland got through a simulated game on Saturday with no issues. As long as he bounces back OK, he'll resume his closing duties on Tuesday, pushing Wade Davis back to a setup role. "I felt really good," Holland said. "It was exciting. I was able to execute most of my pitches. With that layoff, without really getting off the mound and facing hitters, it was very encouraging." Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 7:59 am
  • Pujols slugs fourth homer in loss to Giants
    Albert Pujols slugged his fourth home run of the season Saturday in the Angels' loss to the Giants.

    Advice: The seventh-inning shot off Tim Hudson was Albert's only hit of the game. He sat out Thursday and Friday with a left hamstring injury but told reporters late Saturday that it's no longer bothering him. The 35-year-old is batting just .210/.289/.395 on the young season, but he should be good for 25-plus dingers if he can stay mostly healthy. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 5:45 pm
  • Pujols returns to Angels lineup on Saturday
    Albert Pujols (hamstring) has returned to the Angels starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: He's slotted in his regular third slot in the Angels lineup and will play first base. Before he sustained the injury, the veteran slugger was hitting just .208/.291/.364 with three homers and nine RBI in 21 games. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 11:12 am
  • Several teams in the mix for Saltalamacchia
    Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the Royals, Rays and Diamondbacks are each believed to be in the mix for Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

    Advice: The veteran backstop was designated for assignment by the Marlins earlier in the week and the team is looking to trade him before he becomes a free agent. Each of the three teams mentioned would view Saltalamacchia as a backup. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:02 am
  • Adam Eaton remains out of White Sox lineup
    Adam Eaton remains out of the White Sox lineup on Saturday due to illness.

    Advice: Eaton was given a night off on Friday as he was feeling under the weather and doesn't appear to have improved overnight. J.B. Shuck is starting in his place in center field and will bat leadoff against Ricky Nolasco and the Twins. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:35 am
  • 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
  • Holland (pectoral) to throw sim game Saturday
    Greg Holland (pectoral) will throw a simulated game on Saturday.

    Advice: It's not clear whether he'll require a rehab assignment before returning, but either way Holland appears to be nearing activation. The closer is eligible to return on Sunday after missing the last couple weeks with a Grade 1 pectoral strain. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 2:43 pm
  • Addison Russell blasts first HR in Cubs' win
    Addison Russell belted a solo home run in Friday's victory over the Brewers.

    Advice: Russell struck out in his other two plate appearances, but his drive over the left-center field wall in the third inning represented the only scoring of the game. The young infielder is hitting just .194/.219/.387 in the early going and batting in the No. 9 spot is unappealing for fantasy owners, but the upside obviously remains. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 2:35 pm
  • Adam Eaton not in Friday's lineup
    Adam Eaton is not in the White Sox' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Eaton had an awful April, batting just .192/.241/.256 over 19 contests. J.B. Shuck is in center field, while Micah Johnson is in the leadoff spot. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 1:27 pm
  • Pujols (hamstring) hopes to play this weekend
    Albert Pujols said Thursday that his left hamstring was feeling better and that he's hopeful of playing Saturday or Sunday in San Francisco.

    Advice: The Angels are likely to take things cautiously with their veteran slugger, so while he could appear as a pinch-hitter over the weekend, it would be surprising to see him return to the lineup so quickly. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 4:40 pm
  • Jesse Chavez hit hard in loss to Angels
    Jesse Chavez was hit hard in a losing effort against the Angels on Thursday afternoon, surrendering four runs on seven hits over his five innings.

    Advice: Chavez punched out five on the day while walking three. He seemed to tire a bit as the game wore on, with most of the damage against him coming in a three-run uprising in the fifth inning. Even with the rough outing, Chavez sports a 2.55 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 18/7 K/BB ratio over 17 2/3 innings on the season. He'll look to get in the win column for the first time when he does battle against the Twins in Minnesota on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 4:09 pm
  • Parnell (elbow) throws from 60 feet
    Bobby Parnell (elbow) threw from a distance of 60 feet on Thursday.

    Advice: Parnell was recently shut down for a week due to forearm soreness, but he's slowly picking things back up. He's still a ways out from rejoining the Mets' bullpen. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 1:58 pm
     
    15-Day DL
    4:10 pm vs Bal
  • Albert Pujols says left hamstring feels 'OK'
    Albert Pujols told reporters Thursday morning that his left hamstring feels "OK."

    Advice: But he is not in the Angels' lineup Thursday afternoon in Oakland and he probably won't get any starts during the team's weekend series in San Francisco, where there will be no option to DH him. Pujols pulled up lame on a base hit in the sixth inning Wednesday night and had to limp off the field, but he believes it was just a hamstring cramp. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 9:56 am
  • Pujols (hamstring) expected to avoid the DL
    Albert Pujols is expected to avoid the disabled list after leaving Wednesday's game with hamstring tightness.

    Advice: Pujols is set to miss at least a couple of games, though. C.J. Cron will start at first base unless the Angels decide to call up Efren Navarro. Collin Cowgill and Grant Green could get some extra at-bats. Pujols tweaked his hamstring Wednesday night on a sixth-inning single. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:47 pm
  • Vogelsong torched, rotation gig in jeopardy
    Ryan Vogelsong was punted around for six runs over three innings in a 7-3 loss to the Dodgers on Wednesday.

    Advice: It was ugly. On the bright side, as it were, it could have been uglier. Vogelsong gave up three homers in the first inning and another in the third. Fortunately for him, only one runner was on base total as the four balls sailed over the wall. We can't imagine Vogelsong is long for the Giants' rotation and you should expect an upcoming announcement which banishes him to the bullpen. Vogelsong, you'll recall, was booted from the rotation after his first start of the season. Injuries to Matt Cain and Jake Peavy gave him another shot, but Giants manager Bruce Bochy can only tolerate rolling out a pitching machine for so long. Vogelsong is now 0-2 with a 9.31 ERA and 2.02 WHIP. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:24 pm
  • Pujols exits with potential hamstring injury
    Albert Pujols left Wednesday's game against the Athletics with a potential left hamstring injury.

    Advice: Pujols singled in the sixth inning but clutched his hamstring as he jogged to first base. The 35-year-old left the game but was moving fairly well, lending hope to the idea that it's a mostly precautionary measure. The Angels should give an update shortly. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:48 pm
  • 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
  • Rosenthal escapes trouble for his 8th save
    Trevor Rosenthal got out of a ninth-inning jam for his eighth save of the season in Wednesday's victory versus the Phillies.

    Advice: Rosenthal was tasked with protecting a three-run lead against the light-hitting Phillies. After getting two quick outs, he allowed a single to pinch-hitter Grady Sizemore and a walk to Ben Revere to bring up the tying run in the form of Odubel Herrera. Rosenthal powered a fastball by Herrera to close out the contest. The right-hander moves to 8-for-8 in save chances with a 0.93 ERA and a 14/5 K/BB ratio in 9 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:03 pm
  • Cashner punches out 10 in loss to Astros
    Andrew Cashner struck out 10 over seven innings but allowed three runs -- two earned -- in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: For the second straight day a Padres pitcher enjoyed a strong strikeout total against a free-swinging Astros club but ended up with the loss. For Cashner, he allowed six hits and walked one but was simply outpitched by Dallas Keuchel. It was still a largely positive start for the right-hander, who fell to 1-4 but owns a 2.61 ERA and 36/8 K/BB ratio through five starts. Cashner will look to get in the win column Tuesday at the Giants. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:18 pm
  • Royals considering pursuit of Saltalamacchia
    Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports that the Royals have had internal discussions about pursuing Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

    Advice: McCullough notes that the talks are "very preliminary" at this point. It appears that the Marlins will be able to trade Saltalamacchia after designating him for assignment, but some of the interested clubs are looking at him only as a backup. In addition to the Royals, the Mariners, Diamondbacks, Indians and Red Sox also appear to have interest. Miami would obviously have to eat the majority of what remains on Salty's three-year, $21 million contract to make a deal happen. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 5:54 am
  • Holland (pectoral) may return early next week
    Greg Holland threw a bullpen session Tuesday for the first time since landing on the disabled list on April 18 with a Grade 1 pectoral strain.

    Advice: Royals manager Ned Yost said after the workout that he thinks Holland could be ready by early next week. Wade Davis has been filling in at closer for Kansas City and has been fantastic, but the job is Holland's. He had converted four saves in four opportunities without allowing a run before suffering the pectoral injury. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 1:20 pm
  • M's having discussions about Saltalamacchia
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Mariners are having internal discussions about whether to pursue Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

    Advice: Saltalamacchia was designated for assignment on Monday, so the Marlins have 10 days to find a trade. Otherwise, he'll hit free agency and can sign at the major league minimum. The Mariners are currently relying on a combination of Mike Zunino and Jesus Sucre, so Salty could at least make sense as a backup option. The Diamondbacks are also reportedly considering the possibility. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 11:13 am
  • Angels not involved with Saltalamacchia
    Jon Morosi of FOX Sports hears that the Angels are not involved in trade talks with the Marlins about Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

    Advice: The Angels haven't gotten much production out of Chris Iannetta and Drew Butera so far this season, but they don't see Saltalamacchia as an upgrade over what they already have. The 29-year-old was designated for assignment on Monday and the Marlins reportedly expect to trade him. The Diamondbacks, Red Sox, Indians, and Mariners have been mentioned as potential landing spots. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:22 am
  • Segura plates three runs in a losing effort
    Jean Segura knocked in three of the Brewers' four runs on Monday in a losing effort versus the Reds.

    Advice: Segura finished 2-for-5 on the night. He plated the Brewers' first run in the third inning with a single, then added his team's final two runs with another single in the ninth inning. Segura hasn't hit for much power but has otherwise performed well, batting .312/.338/.403 with eight RBI and three stolen bases. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:52 pm
  • D'Backs could go after Jarrod Saltalamacchia
    Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Diamondbacks are having internal discussions about whether to pursue Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

    Advice: Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe says a total of five teams have expressed interest in Salty and that Marlins general manager Dan Jennings expects to trade the catcher. ESPN's Jerry Crasnick adds that, in addition to the D'Backs, the Red Sox, Indians and Mariners are also possible landing spots for Salty. Arizona would be an ideal landing spot for him, as he'd be in line to play regularly and would be in a hitter's park. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 2:37 pm
  • Parnell (elbow) to resume throwing Thursday
    Bobby Parnell (elbow) is planning to resume throwing off flat ground on Thursday.

    Advice: Parnell was shut down for a week with some renewed discomfort in his surgically-repaired right elbow, but it doesn't sound like it was a significant setback. He's on track to debut at some point in mid-to-late May and could quickly be pitching in high-leverage situations for the Mets. Rotoworld.com

  • Marlins dump catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia
    Marlins activated C Jarrod Saltalamacchia from the paternity leave list; designated him for assignment.

    Advice: Salty was signed to a three-year, $21 million free agent contract before the 2014 season, but he struggled in his first summer with Miami and was off to a terrible start in 2015. 24-year-old prospect J.T. Realmuto has emerged as the Marlins' best option at catcher. Salty will presumably pass through waivers because of the money he is owed. He would then hit the free agent market, and should draw considerable interest there. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 12:22 pm
  • Jesse Chavez moving into A's rotation
    Jesse Chavez will take Kendall Graveman's spot in the Athletics' rotation.

    Advice: It was the presumed move after Graveman was sent down Sunday. Chavez was mostly very good as a starter for the A's last season (3.44 ERA) and allowed just one run and one hit over six frames in a spot start last week. He should be owned in AL-only formats and deeper mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 26, 10:20 am
  • Holland (pectoral) cleared to resume throwing
    Greg Holland (pectoral) will play catch on Sunday.

    Advice: It will be the first time he's thrown since being diagnosed with a Grade 1 right pectoral strain. Holland is eligible to be activated from the disabled list in a week, though it's possible he'll need a little more time than that.
