  • Utley day-to-day with lingering foot issue
    Chase Utley was removed from Tuesday's win over the Giants with a lingering foot issue.

    Advice: Utley didn't actually start the game, but he singled and scored as a pinch-hitter in the sixth inning and stayed on for defense in the seventh before leaving in the eighth. "He's been maintenancing his foot for about a month," manager Dave Roberts said late Tuesday night. "That's why we had to get him out of the game. He couldn't stay on his feet any longer. Chase will be day to day." Rotoworld.com Today, 6:08 am

  • Addison Russell cranks two-run homer in win
    Addison Russell went 2-for-5 with a double and a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

    Advice: Russell cranked a two-run home run off Padres starter Christian Friedrich in the fifth inning. The dinger was his 19th of the season. For the campaign as a whole, the 22-year-old shortstop is slashing .251/.336/.445 across 418 at-bats. He has homered in each of his last three games, including a two-homer effort against the Rockies on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:34 pm
  • Cano singles twice in loss to former team
    Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: As a team, the Mariners managed just four hits on the evening. Cano was the only player to pick up more than one. The All-Star second baseman is in the midst of a fantastic campaign and is currently slashing .295/.349/.522 with 28 homers and 79 RBI across 508 at-bats. Fantasy second basemen don't get much better than that. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:03 pm
  • Flores hits three-run shot in win over Cards
    Wilmer Flores hit a three-run home run as the Mets bested the Cardinals 7-4 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Getting a start against a lefty as per usual, Flores turned on an inside fastball in the first inning for the three-run dinger. It was his only hit in the game and Flores' 13th homer of the year. With first base still a big question mark and Flores' ability to hit left-handed pitching, the 25-year-old should continue to draw starts at the less-hot corner going forward. Flores is hitting .259/.315/.447 in 87 games total. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:00 pm

  • Perez' two-run triple leads Brewers past Rox
    Hernan Perez hit a two-run triple in the seventh inning to help the Brewers get past the Rockies 6-4 on Tuesday.

    Advice: The hit was Perez' only one in four at-bats, but it was a big one. With two outs and an 0-2 count, Perez slashed a Carlos Estevez pitch down the right field line and into the corner, plating both Jonathan Villar and Ryan Braun to give the Brewers a late lead. It was just the latest noteworthy performance for the 25-year-old this year, who's hitting .282/.308/.458 with 11 homers, 43 RBI, 35 runs scored and 23 steals in 87 games played.

  • Dozier homers, scores twice against Tigers
    Brian Dozier went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in a loss to the Tigers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Dozier hit a solo jack in the fifth inning, his 10th homer this month and 29th of the season. That's seventh-best in the American League, and it's now a single-season high for the 29-year-old. It's shaping up to be a career year on a few different fronts for Dozier, who is batting .268/.341/.536 with 75 RBI, 77 runs scored and 10 steals this year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:58 pm
  • Saladino still sidelined by back discomfort
    Tyler Saladino missed a fourth straight start Tuesday due to back soreness.

    Advice: But the 27-year-old infielder did say Tuesday that it's "feeling better." Saladino hasn't appeared in a game for the White Sox since last Thursday. He had been serving as their primary starter at second base with Brett Lawrie (hamstring, quad, knee) on the disabled list. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:56 pm

  • Brett Lawrie getting tests on sore quad
    Brett Lawrie is undergoing more tests in Chicago after reaggravating his quad.

    Advice: Lawrie was pulled off his rehab assignment and the White Sox aren't sure when he might return to live minor league games, let alone the major league roster. "He hasn’t played enough to make it through a game so there’s something going on there," manager Robin Ventura said Tuesday. Lawrie originally landed on the disabled list July 22 with a left hamstring strain. He's also been dealing with fluid in his knee. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:52 pm

  • Trea Turner goes 4-for-4 in loss to Orioles
    Trea Turner had three singles and a double in four trips to the plate on Tuesday versus the Orioles.

    Advice: It's the first four-hit night of the youngster's career. He also had a couple would-be stolen bases overturned by instant replay. Turner has stabilized the center field and leadoff spots for the Nationals, as he now sports a .320/.346/.536 batting line with four homers and 14 steals over 36 games.

  • Beckham leaves game with tight hamstring
    Tim Beckham left Tuesday's game against the Red Sox with a tight left hamstring.

    Advice: He was replaced in the lineup by Richie Shaffer before the top of the eighth inning, finishing the night 1-for-3 with a single. Beckham will be reevaluated by the Rays' medical team on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:11 pm

  • Peraza stays hot with two hits, two steals
    Jose Peraza singled twice and stole a pair of bases in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

    Advice: He's now an incredible 9-for-19 at the plate since being recalled last week. There's not really a spot for Peraza to get regular starts once Zack Cozart (Achilles) is ready, but he's certainly playing well enough to force the Reds to make a tough decision. Perhaps they'll bench Scott Schebler. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:58 pm

    DJ LeMahieu was scratched from the Rockies' lineup Tuesday due to left wrist inflammation.

  • Aledmys Diaz (thumb) took grounders Tues.
    Aledmys Diaz (thumb) was able to take grounders on Tuesday in St. Louis.

    Advice: He is scheduled for a checkup with doctors next Monday and will hope to advance to full baseball activities at that point. Diaz has been on the disabled list since the end of July with a hairline fracture in his thumb. Greg Garcia and Jedd Gyorko have been doing most of the filling in at shortstop for the Cardinals.

    Devon Travis is out Tuesday due to an issue with the third knuckle on his right hand.

    Advice: Travis received an injection and the Blue Jays are hoping he can return Wednesday. It doesn't sound like anything major. Darwin Barney is starting at second base and batting leadoff Tuesday versus the Angels. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:21 pm

  • Marlins place Dietrich (knee) on 15-day DL
    Marlins placed 2B Derek Dietrich on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee contusion.

    Advice: The move was made retroactive to August 19. It clears a roster spot for Oswaldo Arcia, who was claimed off waivers from Tampa Bay. Dietrich was an effective hitter before the All-Star break (.303 AVG in 231 at-bats) but has slumped in the second half by hitting only .195 over his last 77 at-bats.

  • Peterson (neck, shoulder) returns as pinch-hitter
    Jace Peterson (neck, shoulder) struck out as a pinch-hitter in Monday night's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: He was originally in the starting lineup but was scratched prior to the game after feeling tightness in his neck and shoulder. Peterson hurt himself running into the center field wall in Sunday's series finale against Washington. He should be available off the bench Tuesday night but it's unclear if he's ready to return to the starting lineup. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:57 am
  • Starlin Castro homers twice
    Starlin Castro hit a pair of solo homers Monday against the Mariners.

    Advice: Castro has set a new career high with 17 homers this year, but even so, he hasn't been as productive as hoped. The sub-.300 OBP and mediocre defense at second base have left him a below average regular. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:30 pm
  • Jonathan Schoop slugs home run No. 20
    Jonathan Schoop smacked a solo home run in Monday's victory over the Nationals.

    Advice: Schoop's dinger to lead off the third inning was the Orioles' first hit of the game. They tacked on three more runs in the fourth, with Mark Trumbo joining Schoop in going deep. Schoop now has a career-high 20 home runs, giving the O's five players that have reached the 20-homer mark. Pedro Alvarez (19) will join the group at some point. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:10 pm
  • Danny Espinosa rips homer against Orioles
    Danny Espinosa belted a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Orioles.

    Advice: Espinosa took Mychal Givens deep in the seventh inning with an opposite field shot that cut the Orioles' lead to one. Unfortunately for the Nationals, that's as close as they would get. It was Espinosa's first longball since a two-homer game back on July 3, as he's predictably fallen off at the plate after his monster June. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:05 pm

  • A's call up INF/OF Arismendy Alcantara
    Athletics recalled INF/OF Arismendy Alcantara from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Alcantara has had a couple of brief stints with the big club since being acquired from the Cubs back in June, but he should now get a chance to stick around down the stretch. The 24-year-old has hit .276/.325/.457 with 11 homers and 32 steals over 102 games this season at the Triple-A level. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:16 pm
  • Padres call up INF Sardinas
    Padres recalled INF Luis Sardinas from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: He'll replace the injured Jabari Blash (finger) on the active roster. Sardinas was just acquired from the Mariners last week and owns a lowly .218/.257/.268 batting line in the majors. He figures to serve in a utility infielder role. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:36 pm
  • Peterson scratched from Monday's lineup
    Jace Peterson was scratched from Monday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Peterson is dealing with some soreness after colliding with the wall during Sunday's game. He expects to be ready to play Tuesday. Chase d’Arnaud will start in his place at second base on Monday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:21 pm
  • Peraza goes 4-for-6 with three runs scored
    Jose Peraza finished 4-for-6 with three runs scored in the Reds' loss to the Dodgers on Monday.

    Advice: He doubled twice and singled twice, scoring runs in the third, fourth, and sixth innings. Peraza is now 9-for-15 with three RBI and five runs scored since his return to the major leagues on Monday and has lifted his batting average to .301. He's also swiped 10 bases in 36 games. The versatile 22-year-old is capable of continuing to provide sneaky fantasy value down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:50 pm

  • Brandon Drury plates lone run in loss Sunday
    Brandon Drury went 2-for-3 and plated the Diamondbacks' lone run in Sunday's loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Drury's RBI single that plated Phil Gosselin in the seventh inning finally got the D'Backs on the board, but at that point they had already trailed by seven runs. As a club, they only mustered five hits on the afternoon, with Drury collecting a pair of them. With the two-hit attack, Drury is now hitting .255/.300/.409 with 32 RBI on the season.

  • Russell hits pair of solo shots in Colorado
    Addison Russell hit a pair of solo homers Sunday in the Cubs' loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: He got to Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa in both the top of the fifth and the top of the seventh, but Colorado's offense produced 11 runs on 14 hits to take an 11-4 win. Russell finished the day 2-for-3 with two RBI and two runs scored. He's up to 17 homers and 78 RBI for the year. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:20 pm
  • Jace Peterson ends extras with walk-off homer
    Jace Peterson hit a solo walk-off home run to end Sunday's 7-6, 10-inning win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Peterson also had an infield single in the sixth inning. He improved on that little hit -- and then some -- by clocking the game-winning home run off Shawn Kelley with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning. For the season, the 26-year-old second baseman has hit to a .255/.348/.389 triple-slash with seven homers and 22 RBI across 247 at-bats. Despite Sunday's heroics, Peterson holds no fantasy intrigue. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:45 pm
  • Utley rocks solo home run in win over Reds
    Chase Utley went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two total RBI in Sunday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Utley burned Anthony DeSclafani for a solo shot in the first inning and picked up an RBI single in the third. While the veteran second baseman is slashing a middling .256/.327/.399 this season, he has picked up six two-hit games in his last 10 contests. Utley can still be safely avoided in most fantasy formats, but his recent hot bat makes him an interesting DFS option. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:57 pm

  • Zobrist scores three times as Cubs rout Rox
    Ben Zobrist went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in the Cubs' 9-2 thumping of the Rockies on Saturday.

    Advice: Zobrist had an RBI double in the teams' four-run fourth inning, and he tacked on a solo homer in the ninth for good measure. His 14 home runs are the most he's hit in a season since 2012. The multi-hit game was also his fourth in his last eight contests, raising his overall line to .279/.386/.450 with 62 RBI and 76 runs scored in 113 games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:50 pm
  • Peraza has three hits, homer in return
    Jose Peraza went 3-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored Saturday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Peraza celebrated his return to the Reds -- he had been recalled earlier in the day -- with easily his best game as a major leaguer to date. Also of note, he started at shortstop in the game after working at the position in the minors following his August 2 demotion. There's a reason he was a second baseman coming up through the minors, but if the Reds want to use him at short then more power to them. The added eligibility, should he acquire it, would make him a more interesting player come spring 2017. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:19 pm

    Advice: Travis knocked a two-run single in the second inning to get the Jays on the board, raising his RBI total to 37 in 68 games. The month of August has been good to the 25-year-old, who is now hitting .333 with three homers, 11 RBI and 10 runs this month.

  • Jose Peraza called back up by Reds Saturday

    Advice: He's taking the place of Keyvius Sampson on the Reds roster.

He's unlikely to see enough playing time to become relevant in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:49 am

  • Jean Segura goes 5-for-6 in loss
    Jean Segura finished 5-for-6 with three steals Friday against the Padres.

    Advice: One Dave Stewart move that's worked out was the Segura acquisition; Segura is hitting .321 after coming in at .246 and .257 in his last two years in Milwaukee. He also has as many homers (11) and doubles (31) as the last two years combined. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:47 pm

  • Jean Segura raps two-run homer in loss
    Jean Segura went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Thursday's loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Segura scored the first run of the game on a wild pitch by Paul Clemens in the first inning. The 26-year-old second baseman would do louder damage with a two-run home run in the sixth inning. For the season, Segura is slashing .315/.362/.473 with 11 homers, 47 RBI and 24 steals. On the micro level, he is 7-for-14 over his last three games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:23 pm

  • Cano cracks solo home run in loss to Angels
    Robinson Cano went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Cano whacked a solo home run off Angels starter Matt Shoemaker in the first inning for his lone hit of the game. The dinger was his 27th of the season and pushed his RBI total to 75. The 27 homers are the most he has hit since he launched the same number with the Yankees in 2013. With about a month-and-a-half remaining in the season, the star second baseman needs six more home runs to tie the career-best 33 he notched four seasons ago. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:30 pm
  • Dozier launches 27th homer against Royals
    Brian Dozier hit his 27th home run of the year in Thursday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Dozier greeted Royals starter Dillon Gee rudely, homering to lead off the game. Little did Dozier and company know it would be the only run they would get against Gee and the Royals bullpen on the evening. Dozier is riding a nine-game hitting streak during which he's homered five times with 10 RBI and nine runs scored. His speed has disappeared -- Dozier's eight steals would be the lowest of his career -- but everything else is working for the 29-year-old, who's hitting .267/.341/.531 with 73 RBI and 73 runs scored overall.

  • Brett Lawrie suffers quad injury in rehab game

    Advice: No one this side of the equator (sorry, that disqualifies you, Michael Phelps) is as hot as LeMahieu these days. The 28-year-old is now hitting .548 (17-for-31) with two home runs, five RBI and eight runs scored during an eight-game hitting streak, running his overall line to .342/.415/.498.

  • Perez hits 10th homer in loss against Cubs
    Hernan Perez went 2-for-4 with his 10th home run of the season in Tuesday's nightcap against the Cubs.

    Advice: Perez hit what seemed like a meaningless homer with two outs in the ninth inning of a four-run game, but the Brewers put together a small rally to bring the tying run to the plate before Aroldis Chapman snuffed out the comeback attempt. The homer was the 10th for Perez in what is shaping up to be a breakout year for the 25-year-old. He's hitting .286/.312/.456 with 21 steals to go along with those 10 homers.

  • Utley has two HR, five RBI in return to Phila
    Chase Utley enjoyed his return to Philadelphia on Tuesday, launching a solo home run and a grand slam in a win over the Phillies.

    Advice: He took Vincent Velasquez deep in the fifth inning and then smacked a grand slam off of Michael Mariot in the seventh. It was quite a scene in Philly, as the Phillies' fans gave their former star a curtain call after each of his home runs.

On the road, he's at a much more pedestrian, though still respectable, .288 with a 38/16 K/BB ratio in 239 plate appearances. It's just not all about the home run at Coors.

  • Padres acquire Luis Sardinas from Mariners
    Padres acquired INF Luis Sardinas from the Mariners for cash.

    Advice: Sardinas was designated for assignment by Seattle last week after batting just .181/.203/.264 over 77 plate appearances. The 23-year-old utility infielder is a .218/.257/.268 career hitter in the major leagues, but he could very well open the 2017 season as the Padres' starting shortstop if they don't make an upgrade this winter.

    Wilmer Flores went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in the Mets' 3-2, 11-inning win over the Padres on Saturday.

    Advice: Flores was having a good night before he came to the dish with runners on the corners and one out in the 11th inning. The 25-year-old hit a ground ball up the middle that second baseman Ryan Schimpf fielded but threw wide of catcher Christian Bethancourt, allowing the winning run to score and making Flores the hero. With the three-hit night, Flores is batting .255/.309/.434 with 11 homers, 33 RBI and 27 runs scored overall. Rotoworld.com Aug 13, 9:15 pm
