  • Murphy not progressing from calf injury
    Mets manager Terry Collins said that Daniel Murphy is not progressing from his right calf injury.

    Advice: Murphy left Sunday's game with a sore right calf and hasn't seen much in the way of improvement since. Fantasy owners need to secure a backup plan for the near future. Rotoworld.com

  • Beckham goes deep for 1st time since June 24
    Gordon Beckham hit his first home run as an Angel in Wednesday's 6-1 win against Miami.

    Advice: He finished 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI and two runs scored. It was his first homer since June 24, part of the reason Beckham was available for the low, low price of a player to be named later or cash considerations last week. He hasn't set the world on fire in Los Angeles either, going hitless in seven at-bats over three appearances coming into tonight. Backing up Howie Kendrick and David Freese, Beckham doesn't retain a ton of fantasy value on the Angels. Rotoworld.com

  • Valbuena homers, but Cubs drop game vs. Reds
    Luis Valbuena walked and hit a solo home run in four at-bats in the Cubs' 7-5 loss to the Reds on Wednesday.

    Advice: Valbuena belted a solo home run to right field off of Mat Latos, the first of back-to-back home runs with Jorge Soler. The third baseman has hit three home runs in his last seven games, giving him 13 on the season along with 43 RBI and a .241/.322/.428 slash line. Rotoworld.com

  • Flores lifts 2nd homer but Mets fall to ATL
    Wilmer Flores finished 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run, but the Mets were handed a 3-2 loss by the Braves on Wednesday.

    Advice: Flores tied the game up at 1-1 when he belted a Julio Teheran offering to left-center in the second inning. The 23-year-old has otherwise had little to write home about offensively this season, slashing .224/.258/.301 with two home runs and 15 RBI in 164 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com

  • Gennett knocks in lone run for Brewer
    Scooter Gennett hit an RBI double in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Padres.

    Advice: The Brew Crew's bats were mostly held down by the Padres' pitching staff. Gennett hit a ground rule double off of Padres starter Tyson Ross in the fourth inning to score Jonathan Lucroy, but that would be all the damage the Brewers could manage. It was Gennett's 26th double and 46th RBI. Scooter's been red-hot in August, slashing .354/.360/.479 for the month. Rotoworld.com

  • Cano hammers 12th home run in M's win
    Robinson Cano hit his 12th home run of the season on Tuesday.

    Advice: Cano would finish the game 1-for-3. The home run was a first inning solo shot off of Rangers' starter Nick Martinez. It gave the second baseman 72 RBI for the year. While Safeco has predictably lowered Cano's home run totals off of his Yankee years, he's doing just about everything else right for the M's, slashing .326/.394/.469 for a winning Mariners club.

  • Kipnis has two hits, RBI single vs. White Sox
    Jason Kipnis went 2-for-5 with an RBI single in Tuesday's win over the White Sox.

    Advice: August is proving to be Kipnis' best month thus far, as he's hitting .281 with 12 runs scored. The good month has the second baseman's line up to .251/.323/.350, still a disappointing mark considering the expectations placed upon Kipnis heading into the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Pedroia homers, knocks in 4 to pace Red Sox
    Dustin Pedroia clubbed a two-run home run and hit a two-run single in six plate appearances in Tuesday's 11-inning win against the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

    Advice: Pedroia kicked off the scoring with a two-run home run in the first inning. As the game was tied up 4-4 in the 11th, Pedroia started off what turned out to be a seven-run frame with a two-run single. The second baseman has homered in consecutive games, giving him seven on the season along with 51 RBI and a .281/.341/.382 slash line. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:49 pm
  • Dozier doubles, scores in loss to Royals
    Brian Dozier doubled and scored in Tuesday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Dozier scored what appeared to be the game-winning run in the seventh inning before the Royals came back for the walk-off victory. Even so, the run was Dozier's American League-leading 92nd run scored this season. The second baseman is hitting .236/.342/.417 overall. Rotoworld.com

  • Jedd Gyorko back in action on Tuesday
    Jedd Gyorko returned to the Padres' lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Gyorko missed three straight starts due to left hamstring discomfort, but he's feeling good enough now to give it a go. The second baseman entered play Tuesday with two homers and eight RBI over his last four starts. Rotoworld.com

  • Alcantara hits his fifth homer in a Cubs win
    Arismendy Alcantara went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's win against the Reds.

    Advice: Alcantara padded the Cubs' lead to 3-0 with his two-run, seventh-inning blast off of Johnny Cueto. The center fielder has hit well lately, batting 8-for-20 with a pair of home runs over his last five games. In 187 plate appearances this season, the 22-year-old is slashing .228/.285/.374 with 16 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Harrison hits 12th home run against Cardinals
    Josh Harrison hit his 12th home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Harrison hit the solo shot off Cardinals starter Lance Lynn in the fifth inning. The 27-year-old is hitting .302/.336/.494 with 12 homers and 61 runs scored on the season. With Pedro Alvarez making the switch to first base, Harrison has found an everyday home at third base for the rest of the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Cabrera belts 3rd Nats homer to tie the game
    Asdrubal Cabrera hit a game-tying solo home run in the top of the eighth inning, but the Nationals still lost to the Phillies by a 4-3 score on Tuesday.

    Advice: It was a back-and-forth affair for much of the later innings, with the Nationals responding to the Phillies' three runs in the fifth and sixth with three of their own in the seventh and eighth. Cabrera's home run, off of Cole Hamels, is his third as a National. He has a .273/.367/.481 with 11 RBI in 90 plate appearances as well. Rotoworld.com

  • Omar Infante nursing sore shoulder
    Omar Infante is not in Tuesday's lineup due to a sore right shoulder.

    Advice: Infante dealt with shoulder soreness back in spring training, but it's unclear whether this is the same issue. Regardless, it doesn't seem to be more than a day-to-day situation. Christian Colon is getting the start at second base on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

  • M's ink GM Zduriencik to multi-year extension
    The Mariners announced Tuesday that they have signed GM Jack Zduriencik to a multi-year extension.

    Advice: The specific length of the deal was not specified. Zduriencik seemed to be on the hot seat entering the 2014 season, but his Mariners have amassed a surprising 71-59 record and appear poised to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2001. The massive 10-year, $240 million offseason commitment to Robinson Cano has looked good in year one and starter Chris Young has been a tremendous free agent find. Rotoworld.com

  • DeShields collects 4 XBH, 5 RBI on Monday
    Astros prospect OF Delino DeShields had a monster game Monday, going 4-for-6 with two home runs, one double, one triple and five RBI for Double-A Corpus Christi.

    Advice: It's been a disappointing season for the 22-year-old DeShields, who's batted .244/.352/.374 with 26 extra-base hits through 107 games in his first taste of the Double-A level. Though his production is down, DeShields' speed has translated favorably at the higher level, as he currently ranks second in the Texas League with 50 stolen bases (in 64 attempts). In his defense, DeShields did miss time early in the year after wearing a pitch to the face, so the fact he's been able to salvage his season like he has is encouraging. Rotoworld.com

  • Marwin Gonzalez goes 3-for-4
    Marwin Gonzalez went 3-for-4 with a couple of doubles Monday against the A's.

    Advice: The second double shouldn't have been a double; it was either a single and a two-base error or a triple, depending on how the scorer wanted to treat the ball bouncing past Josh Reddick in the right-field corner. Instead, the scorer gave him a double even though Gonzalez initially stopped after rounding first. Regardless, it was a nice game for Gonzalez, who had been hitting just .215/.271/.308 in 65 at-bats this month. He could use a nice hot streak to finish the month or he might lose most of his playing time to Jonathan Villar in September. Rotoworld.com

  • Marco Scutaro (back) likely done for season
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Monday that Marco Scutaro (back) is unlikely to return this season.

    Advice: It's no surprise, as Scutaro has missed the last month with his chronic back injury and isn't getting any better. He's been limited to just five games this season, picking up one hit in 11 at-bats. Scutaro is owed $6.67 million in 2015 but will again be a poor bet to stay healthy. Rotoworld.com

    Daniel Murphy, who was removed from Sunday's game with a sore right calf, has been advised by team doctors to stay off his feet during Monday's off day.

    Marwin Gonzalez finished Friday's game 1-for-4 with a home run, an RBI and two runs scored.

    Advice: The fifth inning home run, a solo shot off of Indians starter Carlos Carrasco, was Gonzalez's sixth of the season. Gonzalez won't knock over the light stanchion, but he does have a bit of pop in his bat, which makes him an interesting bench shortstop in deeper AL-only leagues. For the year, Gonzalez is slashing .263/.309/.373 with six home runs and twenty RBI in 228 ABs. Rotoworld.com

    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Thursday that Ehire Adrianza (hamstring) won't return until late September.

    Advice: Depending on where the Giants are in the playoff hunt at that point, it would seem to be possible that he won't return at all. Adrianza missed three weeks earlier this season with a right hamstring strain and then aggravated the injury in late July, so the Giants are taking things slowly with him. Rotoworld.com

  • Angels acquire Gordon Beckham from ChiSox
    Angels acquired 2B Gordon Beckham from the White Sox for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

    Advice: If you're going to gamble, this is the type of player -- and acquisition cost -- to do it on. Beckham has been pretty awful this year -- slashing .221/.263/.336 -- but it's worth finding out if there's still offensive upside in that bat (he entered the year with a career .694 OPS, though Beckham has steadily regressed since logging an .808 OPS as a rookie in 2009). The Chicago Sun-Times' Daryl Van Schouwen wrote earlier this month that the White Sox would probably non-tender Beckham this offseason, so you can understand why they'd take whatever was offered to them. Beckham will back up Howie Kendrick and David Freese. Meanwhile, we expect Marcus Semien to be promoted for an extended look at second base by the White Sox. Rotoworld.com

  • Gyorko goes 2-for-5 with homer and 3 RBI
    Jedd Gyorko finished 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Tuesday's 8-6 loss against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Gyorko crushed a Kevin Correia pitch 413 feet over the center field wall in the first inning to plate Abraham Almonte and Seth Smith and give San Diego an early 3-0 lead. He didn't reach again until a ninth inning single off Kenley Jansen. That hit momentarily made the affair very interesting, but Almonte was thrown out after rounding third to end the game. Gyorko remains hot since returning from the disabled list (plantar fasciitis) in late July, going 24-for-77 (.312) with four homers, five doubles and 20 RBI. Rotoworld.com
