  • Machado belts 9th homer in an Orioles loss
    Manny Machado had three hits in four at-bats, including a solo home run, in Wednesday's defeat at the hands of the Nationals.

    Advice: The Orioles didn't have a whole lot going for them offensively against Doug Fister. Machado's fourth-inning solo homer brought the Orioles back to 4-2, but that was the extent of their offense. The 21-year-old third baseman has homered in five out of his last eight games and is on a six-game hitting streak. Machado owns a .269/.315/.423 slash line with nine home runs and 20 RBI.

  • Conor Gillaspie homers in second straight
    Conor Gillaspie had another nice game Wednesday against the Red Sox, delivering his third homer and his 21st double of the season.

    Advice: It's bizarre how Gillaspie has gone from hitting third at the beginning of the year, when he seemed like a pretty lousy bet, to sixth now, even though he's batting .320. He didn't have a homer until July, but now he has three in seven games. Maybe it'll get him moved back up in the order. Rotoworld.com

  • Jedd Gyorko still several weeks away
    Jedd Gyorko (plantar fasciitis) remains several weeks away from a return.

    Advice: The good news is that Gyorko, according to Padres manager Bud Black, "had a good day" Tuesday as he resumed baseball activities at the team's spring training complex. The second baseman performed throwing exercises, took some swings and tested his injured left foot by running in a pool. "I want to know when he puts his spikes on and runs," said Black. "I've never seen anybody play baseball in a pool." Rotoworld.com

  • Chase Headley going back to old grip
    Chase Headley has gone back to his natural "unorthodox" grip of the bat, which he last used during his breakout 2012 season.

    Advice: Headley broke a bone in spring training of 2013, forcing him to go to a more conventional grip. "I struggled when I came back, so I went to a more conventional grip," he said. "I decided to try to stay with it. I gave it a fair number of at bats this year and didn't feel like I was able to control the barrel like I have in the past." Headley has had two four-hit games over his last five contests, suggesting the grip change is working. It's hard to get too excited since he's still batting only .225/.301/.344 overall, but the change is certainly notable. Rotoworld.com

    In his return to the lineup, Pablo Sandoval went 1-for-4 as the Giants dropped a 6-1 decision to the A's on Tuesday.

    Advice: Sandoval missed the last two games after being hit on the left elbow by a pitch Saturday. Kung Fu Panda hit .190 in his past 12 games prior to the injury. He is batting .261/.314/.414 with 10 homers and 36 RBI over 344 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com

    Chris Coghlan hit his second home run of the day in Tuesday's nightcap against the Reds.

    Advice: Coghlan hit a homer in the first game of the doubleheader, and he took David Holmberg deep for a two-run shot in the second inning of the second game. In a nine-game hitting streak, the 29-year-old 14-for-31 (.452) with six RBI and 10 runs scored. The stretch has pulled his season line up to a passable .262/.336/.438. Rotoworld.com

  • Olt launches 12th home run in loss to Reds
    Mike Olt went 1-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday night's loss to the Reds.

    Advice: The 25-year-old got the start at third base in the second half of Tuesday's doubleheader, and he responded with a two-run shot off David Holmberg in the third inning. Olt also walked and scored the first run of the game in the second inning. He's been good for power -- he now has 12 homers in 173 at-bats this year -- but he owns a .150/.235/.382 line that makes him unusable for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com

    Pedro Alvarez hit his 14th home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Alvarez took Cardinals starter Carlos Martinez deep for a two-run shot in the fourth inning, his only hit of the night. After hitting just three home runs in June, the blast was his first in July. The third baseman is hitting .240/.326/.412 with 44 RBI overall. Rotoworld.com

  • Cabrera busts out of slump with a 3-hit game
    Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-5 with an RBI single and an RBI triple as the Tigers routed the Dodgers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Cabrera had been held hitless over his last three games, but was right in the middle of the Tigers' dismantling of the Dodgers. The triple was his second of the season, making 2014 the first time he has had multiple triples since 2008. Though his numbers overall are down compared to his last two, he still owns an impressive .312/.370/.542 line with 14 home runs and 70 RBI. He is three RBI behind Nelson Cruz for the league lead.

  • Longoria delivers big two-run single vs. KC
    Evan Longoria hit a two-run single and scored a run in Tuesday's win over the Royals.

    Advice: Longoria had just one hit in his four at-bats, but it was a big one. He came through with a two-run single in the sixth inning to give the Rays their first lead. Longoria also scored an important insurance run in the eighth inning. Longoria is batting .263/.339/.397 with a few days left to improve on those numbers before the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com

  • Holt racks up two more hits in Red Sox loss
    Brock Holt doubled, tripled, and scored a run over five trips to the plate, but the Red Sox were handed a loss by the White Sox on Tuesday.

    Advice: Holt was held hitless for the first time in July on Monday. He bounced back and had another productive game at the top of the lineup. His lead-off triple in the fifth inning was the catalyst to a three-run inning in which the Red Sox tied the game. The 26-year-old third baseman has done nothing but hit lately, as he owns a .313/.360/.438 slash line with two home runs, 18 RBI, and six stolen bases. Rotoworld.com

The 26-year-old doubled and scored in the fourth, then went yard for a two-run home run in the sixth inning, breaking a 3-3 tie. Gillaspie has been a nice surprise for the White Sox, as he is slashing .317/.367/.449 with two home runs and 32 RBI. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: There had been some thought that he could be ready for game action at that time as he works his way back from Tommy John surgery. However, the Twins have decided against it and have also ruled him out for the first half of winter ball. It's possible he could play in some game during the second half of winter ball. Rotoworld.com

  • Coghlan hits solo homer vs. Reds
    Chris Coghlan clubbed a solo homer in Tuesday's loss to the Reds.

    Advice: Coghlan has now hit safely in eight straight games, pulling his batting average up from .202 to .254 in the process. Seven out of his last eight starts have been out of the leadoff spot, so he's an interesting short-term option in NL-only formats. Rotoworld.com

    Marlins general manager Dan Jennings told Bob Nightengale of USA Today that the team will not trade Casey McGehee.

    Advice: Jennings also confirmed that the Marlins have no plans to deal slugger Giancarlo Stanton, but it's a bit surprising that he has such a hard stance on McGehee. While the 31-year-old has put together a nice comeback season, he's not a long-term building block. Still, the Marlins don't appear interested in selling high. Rotoworld.com

    Rangers third base prospect Joey Gallo went 2-for-4 with a double and a home run for Double-A Frisco on Monday.

    Advice: The home run was his minor league-leading 31st home run of the season, as he is now one home run ahead of Cubs third base prospect Kris Bryant. Gallo has a spectacular .298/.389/.691 line with seven doubles and 10 home runs in Double-A, but he also has 46 strikeouts in 108 plate appearances (42.3 percent). He has become the Rangers top prospect, but he will need to work on his approach and recognition of off-speed pitches. Rotoworld.com

    Alberto Callaspo finished 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI in a win over the Giants on Monday.

    Advice: This was a much needed positive showing from a player who had hit the skids since the last day of June, slashing .080/.077/.120 in 26 plate appearances over his past seven games. Callaspo will have to continue hitting to hold onto his second base gig. He's slashing .236/.314/.310 overall to go with three homers and 29 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Chase Headley goes 4-for-5 in win
    Chase Headley went 4-for-5 with a two-run triple versus the Rockies on Monday.

    Advice: Two four-hit games in four days have given Headley's batting average a nice boost, all of the way up to .229. Unfortunately, he still has just two extra-base hits and four RBI in his last 17 games. Trade suitors will want to see more power from him before parting with any top prospects. Rotoworld.com

  • David Wright homers in Mets' win
    David Wright homered Monday as the Mets edged the Braves 4-3 in 11 innings.

    Advice: Wright's homer came in the third. The winning run scored in the 11th when Ruben Tejada singled in Juan Lagares. Wright's homer was his first since June 19 and just his seventh this season. It was a solo shot, and he still hasn't had a multi-RBI game since June 2. Rotoworld.com

He's 9-for-17 in three games since returning from a five-game suspension, and he has four homers in his last seven games overall. Rotoworld.com

"It's not pleasant," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Monday. "Hopefully, by tomorrow he should be fine.

    Advice: With the recent injury to Edwin Encarnacion, the Jays now have an even bigger need for a right-handed bat in the middle of their lineup, and Headley seems like a nice fit.

McGehee was 7-for-13 in the series and has four multi-hit games in his last five, raising his average to .320.

"It's going good," Hannahan said. "It's been the best it's felt. I'm just kind of going with the throwing program and swinging. This is the best it's felt this go-round."

    Advice: Encarnacion injured his right quad after trying to beat out a double play relay in the first inning. The injury looked pretty serious -- two trainers had to help him off the field.
