  • Cahill surrenders seven runs in loss to DET
    Trevor Cahill surrendered seven runs -- three earned -- over four innings Wednesday in a loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: It was an ugly game all around for the Diamondbacks, who lost 11-5. Cahill didn't walk a batter and struck out three, but the Detroit offense tagged him for eight hits. He's 1-7 with a 5.72 ERA and 1.71 WHIP this season.

  • Blanks (calf) 'doing better, a lot better'
    Kyle Blanks said Wednesday his injured left calf is "doing better, a lot better."

    Advice: Blanks is dealing with a slight tear in the calf, and he's been on the disabled list since June 23. A's manager Bob Melvin said Blanks is nearing a rehab assignment but is still probably at least a week away. A return in mid-August appears like the most likely scenario for the 27-year-old.

  • Hellickson to return to Rays' rotation Sat.
    Jeremy Hellickson will return to the Rays' starting rotation on Saturday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Hellickson was optioned to Double-A Montgomery just before the All-Star break so that he could get in some work during the long layoff. The right-hander held the Royals to one run over 4 1/3 innings on July 8 in what was his first and only start in the majors this season.

  • Anthony Swarzak terrific in spot start
    Anthony Swarzak was superb in a spot start Wednesday, holding the Indians to one run on two hits and a walk while striking out three in a 3-1 victory.

    Advice: Swarzak, who was starting in place of Kyle Gibson (back) hadn't thrown more than 52 pitches in an outing this season, but he was able to get his pitch count up to 74 Wednesday. He lowered his ERA for the year to 4.10 with the fine showing. Swarzak will be unavailable for a few days before likely returning to a long relief role, though it's possible he's earned another start if Gibson doesn't recover as hoped.

  • Gus Schlosser recalled from Triple-A
    Braves recalled RHP Gus Schlosser from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: He'll be up for a couple days while Anthony Varvaro is on paternity leave. Schlosser has a 4.50 ERA and 0.92 WHIP over 12 innings with the Braves this season.

  • Tony Sipp drawing trade interest
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Tony Sipp has "drawn the most interest of any Astros player."

    Advice: Sipp was scooped up by the Astros in May after opting out of a minor league deal with the Padres and has gone on to post a 2.45 ERA and terrific 41/7 K/BB ratio over 29 1/3 relief innings. Heyman lists the Angels, Braves and Orioles as possible fits for Sipp.

  • Chris Leroux called up by Yankees
    Yankees purchased the contract of RHP Chris Leroux from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: Leroux was designated for assignment by the Yankees back in May after allowing five runs on five hits and a pair of walks in one inning of work. He's getting another chance now but will be used in low-leverage innings.
    Today, 10:36 am
  • Bruce Billings designated for assignment
    Yankees designated RHP Bruce Billings for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears room on the 40-man roster for Chris Leroux. Billings, who allowed four runs over four relief frames in his lone big league appearance this season, has a good shot to clear waivers.

  • Dayan Viciedo scratched with tight hamstring
    Dayan Viciedo was scratched from Wednesday's lineup due to tightness in his left lower hamstring.

    Advice: It's not clear when Viciedo suffered the injury, nor is it known how long he might be sidelined. The White Sox should have an update on the outfield's status later Wednesday. Moises Sierra is covering fro Viciedo in right field.

  • Logan Darnell to start on Saturday
    The Twins are expected to recall Logan Darnell from Triple-A Rochester to start on Saturday versus the White Sox.

    Advice: Kris Johnson was sent down after Monday's start, so the Twins need another arm for this weekend. Darnell tossed three perfect relief innings earlier this season for Minnesota and holds a 3.43 ERA over 17 Triple-A starts this year. The 25-year-old can be ignored for fantasy purposes.

  • Gonzalez pitches into 8th, picks up fifth win
    Miguel Gonzalez allowed just three hits and two runs in seven and two-thirds innings against the Angels on Tuesday.

    Advice: While Gonzalez did walk four, he was able to keep the Angels off the board until the eighth inning, when Mike Trout launched a two-run homer. Gonzalez has made a habit of going deep into games as of late. He'd gone eight innings in each of his last two starts. This effort dropped his ERA to 3.91. If he's able to continue this recent trend, he's somebody to keep an eye on in deep AL-only leagues. Next time out he'll face the Mariners.

  • Porcello goes seven in ND loss to ARI
    Rick Porcello pitched seven innings of three-run ball in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: The start was almost identical to his last start (against the Royals), as Porcello scattered five hits and struck out five without walking a batter in Arizona. Had Detroit's bullpen held onto a 4-3 eighth inning lead, Porcello would have picked up his thirteenth win. Alas, it was not to be. While he's only striking out 5.05 per nine innings, he's also posting the lowest WHIP of his career (1.18) to go with his 3.42 ERA. Porcello takes on the Angels in his next start.

  • Zimmermann gives up four runs over five in ND
    Jordan Zimmermann allowed four runs on eight hits over five innings of work in a no-decision against the Rockies on Tuesday.

    Advice: Zimmermann was vulnerable to the big hit on Tuesday, as the Rockies scored all four of their runs against him on two homers and an RBI triple. He did strike out six while not walking a batter, raising his season K/BB ratio to 107/20 in 118 innings. Zimmermann will carry a 6-5 record and 3.20 ERA into his start at the Marlins early next week.

  • Martinez holds Yankees scoreless in a ND
    Nick Martinez held the Yankees scoreless over 5 1/3 innings but took a no-decision as the Rangers needed 14 innings to lose by a 2-1 margin.

    Advice: Martinez stymied the Yankees, limiting them to only three hits and a walk while striking out three. He left with one out in the sixth, and 67 pitches, after walking Brett Gardner. Martinez's stats aren't pretty, as he owns a 4.73 ERA, 1.62 WHIP, and 32/32 K/BB ratio. He'll try to improve them all when he takes on the Athletics at home on Sunday.
    Yesterday, 9:17 pm
  • Carroll touched for 11 hits, five runs vs. KC
    Scott Carroll was roughed up for 11 hits and five runs over five innings in a loss to the Royals on Tuesday.

    Advice: The right-hander, who had allowed just three hits and zero runs over his past two starts combined, gave up five extra-base hits, including a home run, in the loss. He also walked two and struck out three. Carroll owns a 4.52 ERA and 1.53 WHIP through 73 2/3 innings, and he's a non-factor for fantasy purposes going forward.
    Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Miguel Gonzalez recalled from Triple-A
    Orioles recalled RHP Miguel Gonzalez from Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: Gonzalez will start on Tuesday against the Angels after being optioned prior to the All-Star break so that he could continue pitching. He has a 4.04 ERA and 1.45 WHIP on the season and isn't a good streaming option Tuesday.
    Yesterday, 5:06 pm
  • Rangers activate Martinez for Tuesday start
    Rangers activated RHP Nick Martinez from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Martinez missed a little over two weeks with a left side injury. He will return to the Rangers' starting rotation on Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium. The 23-year-old righty owns a rough 5.10 ERA and 1.69 WHIP this season.
    Yesterday, 12:48 pm
  • Miguel Gonzalez to return Tuesday vs. ANA
    Miguel Gonzalez will return to the Orioles' starting rotation on Tuesday against the Angels.

    Advice: Gonzalez was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk before the All-Star break so that he could get in work during the long layoff. He has a 4.04 ERA and 1.45 WHIP on the season and isn't a good fantasy play against the Halos.

  • Dayan Viciedo powers White Sox past Astros
    Dayan Viciedo blasted a two-run homer in the sixth inning on Friday, helping to power the White Sox to a 3-2 victory over the Astros.

    Advice: He also drew a walk in the ballgame, finishing the night 1-for-3. His blast off Scott Feldman in the sixth inning tied the game at 2-2 and set the stage for the White Sox to secure a come-from-behind victory. The Cuban slugger is now hitting .242/.295/.414 with 12 homers and 36 RBI on the year.

  • Trevor Cahill gives up three runs to Cubs
    Trevor Cahill yielded three runs in five innings Friday against the Cubs in his return to the Diamondbacks rotation.

    Advice: Cahill allowed four hits and two walks. Unfortunately, one of the walks and three of the hits came in the fourth, leading to a three-run inning. Still, it wasn't a disastrous outing. He'll get to make at least a couple of more starts before his status is reevaluated.

  • Zimmermann to start for Nationals on Tuesday
    Jordan Zimmermann (biceps) is scheduled to start for the Nationals on Tuesday in Colorado.

    Advice: Zimmermann had to leave his last outing prior to the All-Star break with a strained biceps, but he played catch Thursday and will throw a bullpen session Saturday. The right-hander has put up a 3.03 ERA and 1.21 WHIP for the Nationals this season.
    Friday, 12:51 pm
  • Jordan Zimmermann (biceps) won't go on DL
    Jordan Zimmermann (biceps) will throw a bullpen session on Friday or Saturday.

    Advice: Assuming he gets through it with no issues, Zimmermann will avoid the disabled list and be cleared to rejoin the Nationals' rotation next week. The right-hander had to leave his last outing prior to the All-Star break with a strained biceps, but obviously the ailment is considered minor. He's up up a 3.03 ERA and 1.21 WHIP this season.
