  • Robinson Cano returns to M's lineup Saturday
    Robinson Cano (abdomen) returned to the Marniners starting lineup as the designated hitter on Saturday.

    Advice: Cano has been sidelined since Monday with a Grade 1 abdominal strain. He still isn't ready to man his position defensively, but can swing the bat without issue. He's hitting cleanup against Kyle Gibson and the Twins on Saturday. Rotoworld.com 26 minutes ago
  • 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 41 minutes ago

  • Blue Jays recall Kawasaki from Triple-A
    Blue Jays recalled INF Munenori Kawasaki from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: The 34-year-old infielder and fan favorite is hitting just .200/.294/.333 in 15 at-bats with the Blue Jays this season. He'll provide infield depth and flexibility while Devon Travis is on the disabled list. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:11 am
  • Wilmer Flores plays hero in win over Nats
    Wilmer Flores clubbed a walk-off homer in the 12th inning to give the Mets a 2-1 win over the Nationals on Friday.

    Advice: You couldn't write it up any better. Flores, who cried on the field Wednesday night after believing that he had been traded to the Brewers, drove in both runs for the Mets on Friday night and was the most popular person at Citi Field. After hitting an RBI single in the fourth inning, he took Felipe Rivero deep to lead off the bottom of the 12th to end it. It was a feel-good moment for Flores and for the Mets, who are two games back of the Nationals in the NL East. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:05 pm
  • Gyorko plates three as Padres outlast Marlins
    Jedd Gyorko went 3-for-4 and drove home three runs on Friday as the Padres topped the Marlins 8-3 in 11 innings.

    Advice: Gyorko tied the game at 2-2 with an RBI single in the fourth inning and delivered a two-run single as part of a five-run uprising in the 11th. While he has picked up the pace offensively in recent weeks, he is still hitting just .233/.296/.350 with 21 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:31 pm
  • Dietrich slugs game-tying homer in ninth
    Derek Dietrich slugged a game-tying solo homer off Craig Kimbrel with two outs in the ninth inning on Friday.

    Advice: Unfortunately for the Marlins, his heroics went for naught as they fell in extra innings to the Padres. It was the lone hit in four at-bats on the night for Dietrich who is hitting .273/.373/.545 with six homers and eight RBI in his limited action this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:27 pm

  • Dodgers place Justin Turner on 15-day DL
    Dodgers placed INF Justin Turner on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 28, with a skin infection on his right thigh.

    Advice: Alex Guerrero and Alberto Callaspo will continue to hold down the fort at the hot corner until Turner is ready to return. He's in the midst of an outstanding season offensively, slashing .323/.387/.563 with 13 homers and 44 RBI in just 254 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:55 pm

  • Robinson Cano (abdomen) out again Friday
    Robinson Cano (abdomen) remained out of the Mariners' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He's likely to sit out through the weekend with a Grade 1 abdominal strain. The Mariners have brought up Ketel Marte for infield help while Cano recovers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:53 pm
  • Ketel Marte recalled from Triple-A
    Mariners recalled INF Ketel Marte from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Just 21, Marte has hit .314/.359/.410 with 20 steals at Tacoma this season. He'll likely handle second base for a while with Robinson Cano (abdomen) banged up. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:48 pm
  • Joe Panik (back) returns to Giants' lineup
    Joe Panik (back) is back in the Giants' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Panik missed a couple games with a stiff back. He returns to a .309/.375/.440 batting line. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:28 pm
  • Donovan Solano back from paternity leave
    Marlins activated INF Donovan Solano from the paternity leave list.

    Advice: He'll return to his utility role. Solano is hitting an embarrassing .145/.185/.210 over 44 games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:11 pm
  • Marlins activate, then release Jeff Baker
    Marlins activated INF Jeff Baker from the 15-day disabled list; released hmi.

    Advice: Baker is apparently over his intercostal strain but is now looking for a new job. The 34-year-old has hit only .208/.288/.375 this season, but he's been a big weapon versus lefties in the past so someone figures to take a shot on him. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:40 am

  • Devon Travis (shoulder) headed to DL
    Blue Jays placed 2B Devon Travis on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 29, with a left shoulder strain.

    Advice: Travis re-injured his left shoulder on Tuesday. He was given a cortisone shot in hopes that he'd be able to power through the ailment, but apparently it hasn't had the desired effect. It's unclear at this point how long he might be sidelined. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:25 am

  • Eddie Rosario homers, triples, doubles
    Eddie Rosario missed the cycle by a single, knocked in three runs and scored three runs Thursday as the Twins beat the Mariners 9-5.

    Advice: Rosario was hitting .272/.296/.396 a week ago. Eight extra-base hits in five games have changed that in a hurry, pushing him up to .294/.316/.462. One would think his lack of plate discipline will catch up to him at some point, but even if that happens, his defense in left field will help him stay in the lineup. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:20 pm

  • D.J. LeMahieu goes 3-for-4 against Cards
    D.J. LeMahieu went 3-for-4 on Thursday, raising his average to .325.

    Advice: That's three three-hit games in four days for the NL All-Star. Still, LeMahieu's value is down since the start of the week, since he's now batting lower in the Rockies order following the Jose Reyes acquisition. With Reyes taking over the second spot, LeMahieu hit sixth tonight. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:19 pm
  • Phillips fills it up: 2 HR, 7 RBI, 2 SB
    Brandon Phillips went 4-for-5 with two homers, seven RBI and two steals as the Reds smoked the Pirates 15-5 on Thursday.

    Advice: That's about as good of a game for fantasy purposes as you'll see. According to Baseball-Reference's Play Index, he's the first player since Ryan Spilborghs in 2009 with two homers and two steals in a game. He's just the third since at least 1914 with seven RBI and two steals, joining Mickey Mantle in 1962 and Gary Sheffield in 1995. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:09 pm
  • Brewers purchase contract of Elian Herrera
    Brewers purchased the contract of INF/OF Elian Herrera from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Herrera will add versatility and depth to the Brewers bench in the wake of the Carlos Gomez trade. The 30-year-old hit just .212/.259/.374 in 99 at-bats with the Brewers earlier in the season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:06 pm

  • Travis (shoulder) receives cortisone shot
    Devon Travis received a cortisone shot in his left shoulder on Wednesday.

    Advice: Travis left Tuesday's game after aggravating the injury. He's slated to rest Thursday before being reevaluated Friday, so a decision about a stint on the disabled list could be made at that time. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:56 pm

  • Lawrie's 4 hits, 4 RBI not enough to beat LAD
    Brett Lawrie went 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles, a homer, three runs scored and four RBI in a loss Wednesday to the Dodgers.

    Advice: He also stole a bag in the monster performance. Lawrie started at third tonight, but he's expected to also draw starts at second base in the wake of Tuesday's Ben Zobrist trade. He's slashing .280/.314/.412 and is on pace for 14 homers, 67 RBI, 54 runs and eight steals. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:49 pm

  • Yangervis Solarte goes 4-for-5
    Yangervis Solarte finished 4-for-5 with two doubles and two runs scored Wednesday against the Mets.

    Advice: Solarte is playing fairly regularly with Will Middlebrooks in the minors and Cory Spangenberg on the DH, and he's hit well this month, batting .284 with three homers in 74 at-bats. There's no mixed-league value here at all, but he's giving the Padres a lift. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:38 pm
  • Schoop homers as Orioles edge the Braves
    Jonathan Schoop went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run as the Orioles narrowly defeated the Braves on Wednesday.

    Advice: Schoop's homer, in the third inning off of Michael Foltynewicz, turned out to be the deciding factor as it broke a scoreless tie in the Orioles' shutout. The second baseman has gone yard seven times in 27 games this season while knocking in 15 and batting .268/.310/.561. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:15 pm

  • Adrianza plates two as Giants top Brewers
    Ehire Adrianza went 1-for-3 and drove home a pair of runs on Wednesday, leading the Giants to a 5-0 victory over the Brewers.

    Advice: Getting a rare start at second base in place of Joe Panik, Adrianza delivered a two-run single as part of a five-run uprising in the seventh inning that broke the game open. The 25-year-old is hitting just .136/.174/.182 in limited action this season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:03 pm
  • Wilmer Flores heading to Brewers for Gomez
    Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that Wilmer Flores will head to the Brewers with Zack Wheeler in exchange for outfielder Carlos Gomez.

    Advice: It's unclear if he'll be utilized at shortstop for the Mets, or if he'll take over their vacancy at third base. The 23-year-old was hitting .249/.281/.379 with 10 homers and 40 RBI in 92 games with the Mets this season. It's a nice haul for the Brewers in exchange for a year-plus of Gomez. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:17 pm
  • Justin Turner will miss a few more games
    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday that Justin Turner will miss a few more games due to the infection in his leg.

    Advice: Turner was forced to sit out on Tuesday and Wednesday after a pimple in his leg became infected and required a trip to the emergency room. Look for Alberto Callaspo and Alex Guerrero to continue see additional playing time in his absence. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:56 pm

  • Robinson Cano getting a breather Wednesday
    Robinson Cano is not in the Mariners' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: He's just getting a day off. Brad Miller is at second base in Cano's place, while Chris Taylor is handling shortstop. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:11 am
  • Joe Panik (back) to sit out again Wednesday
    Joe Panik will miss a second straight game Wednesday due to back tightness.

    Advice: Panik noted that it wasn't one play that caused the injury, but rather it's just "one of those things" you have to deal with during a long season. He's considered day-to-day. Ehire Adrianza will get another start at second base Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:24 am
  • Kendrick has 2 of Dodgers' 3 hits in a loss
    Howie Kendrick went 2-for-4 in Tuesday's 2-0 loss to the Athletics.

    Advice: Sonny Gray tossed a three-hit shutout, and Kendrick was responsible for two of those three hits. The second baseman entered the game 3-for-26 in his previous six games, losing nearly 30 points of OPS. He owns a .285/.333/.397 triple-slash line with seven home runs, 40 RBI, and 45 runs scored. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:41 pm
  • LeMahieu falls homer shy of cycle in Rox win
    D.J. LeMahieu went 3-for-4 with a double, triple and two runs scored in the Rockies' 7-2 win over the Cubs on Tuesday.

    Advice: LeMahieu got the scoring started with an RBI double in the first inning, coming around to score later in the inning. He fell a homer shy of a cycle, but that's not terribly surprising given that he's hit just 13 homers in 469 career games. Still, the 27-year-old is on fire in July, riding an 18-game hitting streak en route to a .324/.381/.423 overall line. His 56 runs scored are eighth-most in the National League. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:44 pm
  • Travis hits leadoff HR, but Jays fall to PHI
    Devon Travis hit a leadoff home run in a 1-for-2 effort before leaving Tuesday's loss to the Phillies with a left shoulder injury.

    Advice: Travis was batting leadoff following the departure of shortstop Jose Reyes in the Troy Tulowitzki trade. He greeted Adam Morgan rudely with a home run to lead off the game. He struck out to end the second inning before leaving the game with a left shoulder injury, likely a re-aggravation of the issue which forced him to the disabled list for five weeks earlier this season. Travis has otherwise had a great season, batting .304/.361/.498 with eight home runs and 35 RBI. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:03 pm

    Wilmer Flores is out of the Mets' lineup again Tuesday.

    Advice: Flores has now been on the bench for three straight games following the additions of Kelly Johnson and Juan Uribe.

  • 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

  • Cano walks twice, homers, but Mariners lose
    Robinson Cano had a pair of walks and a solo home run in five plate appearances, but the Mariners fell to the Diamondbacks in 10 innings on Monday.

    Advice: Cano delivered a solo home run off of Robbie Ray in the sixth inning to reduce the Mariners' deficit to one run. He's had a torrid July, homering seven times while hitting .347 (33-for-95). As a result, his triple-slash line is up to .265/.309/.416 with 11 home runs and 42 RBI on the season.

  • Red Sox acquire Josh Rutledge from Angels
    Red Sox acquired INF Josh Rutledge from the Angels in exchange for OF Shane Victorino and cash.

    Advice: Rutledge entered spring training as the favorite to start at second base, but he lost out on that spot and has been at Triple-A Salt Lake all season, hitting .274/.323/.403. He's merely a depth guy at this point. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:10 pm

  • Pads shopping second baseman Jedd Gyorko
    According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Padres are shopping Jedd Gyorko "hard."

    Advice: Gyorko is batting just .212/.279/.333 in 652 plate appearances since the beginning of the 2014 season. That's right around the time he signed a five-year, $35 million contract extension with the Padres coming off a 2013 campaign in which he tallied 23 home runs and 63 RBI. The 26-year-old second baseman probably isn't going to draw much interest on his own, but maybe the Friars can throw him into a package with one of their more attractive trade chips. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:05 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

  • Cano slugs three-run homer in M's loss
    Robinson Cano slugged a three-run homer Saturday in the Mariners' loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: It was a fourth-inning shot to left field off Jays starter Drew Hutchison. Cano has been producing this entire month and is obviously capable of finishing strong. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:44 pm
  • Miami's Derek Dietrich drawing trade interest
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Marlins infielder Derek Dietrich is drawing trade interest.

    Advice: Rosenthal notes that Miami is willing to move Dietrich if the price is right, and MLB.com's Joe Frisaro adds that the Rays appear to want him. The 26-year-old has posted an excellent .301/.378/.548 batting line in 32 games this season and would take on much more fantasy value with a move to another team -- a team that will actually give him regular starts. The asking price might be high given that he's under contractual control through 2019. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:06 pm

  • Gyorko hits fifth home run in loss to Giants
    Jedd Gyorko hit his fifth home run of the season Wednesday against the Giants.

    Advice: Gyorko finished the game 1-for-4 with the solo homer. Power was supposed to be the second baseman's calling card, but it has dwindled quickly after he mashed 23 homers in his rookie season in 2013. Gyorko is batting just .222/.284/.350 through 63 games this year. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:06 pm
