    Mike Moustakas (clavicle) went 1-for-4 in his return to the Royals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Moustakas made an early exit from Saturday's game after taking a bad hop off his collarbone at third base. He only suffered a bruise. The 26-year-old budding star is batting .333/.385/.491 in 40 games this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Brian McCann leaves game late with injury
    Brian McCann was removed from Sunday's game against the Rangers in the ninth inning with a cramp in his foot/calf.

    Advice: Yankees manager Joe Girardi admitted that he was a little concerned about the injury and that the team would know more about it on Monday. Owners in weekly leagues may want to have another option available should it look like the veteran backstop may miss a few games. Rotoworld.com

  • Fielder goes 3-for-5 with two RBI in victory
    Prince Fielder had another nice night at the dish in Sunday's victory over the Yankees, going 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI.

    Advice: He is absolutely killing it at the plate lately, raising his slash line to .358/.412/.551 with Sunday's three-hit attack. Fielder now has 32 RBI to go along with his eight home runs. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:39 pm

    Anthony Rendon (knee, oblique) is set to begin playing in simulated games on Monday.

    Advice: Rendon went through a workout with team on Sunday, taking batting practice in the cage and fielding ground balls at third base.

  • Nolan Arenado's four-hit attack leads Rockies
    Nolan Arenado went 4-for-5 and finished a double shy of the cycle as the Rockies thrashed the Giants 11-2 in Colorado on Sunday.

    Advice: His three-run blast off Jean Machi capped off an eight-run uprising in the fourth inning that gave the Rockies an early 9-0 lead. Arenado scored three runs and plated four in the impressive performance. He's now hitting .275/.321/.516 with eight homers and 25 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:30 pm
  • Belt delivers RBI double in loss on Sunday
    Brandon Belt went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in a losing effort against the Rockies on Sunday.

    Advice: The Giants had been shut out heading into the ninth inning, where they finally broke through against Chad Bettis to score a pair of runs. Belt has been a monster on the road in recent weeks and is now slashing .311/.384/.511 with 19 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:25 pm
  • Grandal (concussion) to DH on rehab stint
    Yasmani Grandal (concussion) will serve as the designated hitter on his upcoming rehab stint with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: It's a good sign that he'll be ready to come off the 7-day concussion disabled list as soon as he's eligible to do so, as his timing shouldn't be off. Expect Grandal to rejoin the Dodgers by the end of next week. Rotoworld.com

  • Guerrero homers in beatdown loss to Padres
    Alex Guerrero hit a two-run homer in Sunday's big loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Guerrero smacked his homer off of James Shields in the seventh inning, drawing the Padres to within 10-3. There was no epic comeback in the works, though, and the homer worked merely to pad Guerrero's stats. Not that they need much padding. With a .300/.329/.638 slash line, plus seven homers and 18 RBI in just 80 at-bats, Guerrero has taken advantage of limiting playing time to put up productive numbers. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:06 pm
  • James Loney suffers sprained finger Sunday
    James Loney sustained a sprained finger in Sunday's loss to the Athletics.

    Advice: He'll be re-evaluated on Monday before determining his status moving forward. He was one of three Rays offensive starters who suffered injuries in Sunday's defeat. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:04 pm
  • Goldschmidt homers and drives in three
    Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and three RBI in Sunday's win over the Cubs.

    Advice: Goldy almost single-handedly won the Diamondbacks the game, as he drove in three of the four runs. The other was driven in by starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson. Goldschmidt hit an RBI single in the first inning, then decided to up the excitement factor with a two-run homer in the third. Just another day at the office for the slugger, who is hitting a phenomenal .333/.438/.635 with 12 homers, 38 RBI and 34 runs scored. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:58 pm
  • Abreu smacks solo homer in loss to Twins
    Jose Abreu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Twins.

    Advice: Abreu hit his solo tater off of Kyle Gibson in the fourth inning. It would be the only run that the White Sox managed to score in the game. The dinger was Abreu's seventh and pushed his RBI total to 23. While he's not hitting at the monstrous level that he was in 2014, he's still posting a rock-solid .282/.349/.474 slash-line. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:27 pm
  • Napoli stays hot with homer and four RBI
    Mike Napoli hit a two-run homer and a two-run double to finish 2-for-3 with four RBI in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Angels.

    Advice: Napoli had been as cold as the dark side of the moon for most of the season, but over the last two games he has been as hot as a moon that has flown out of orbit and just hit the sun. After a solo homer on Friday and two homers on Saturday, Napoli followed up with another huge game. He smashed a two-run homer off of Hector Santiago in the second inning, then hit a deep double to score two in the eighth to finish with four RBI and two runs scored. After slugging under .300 a week ago, he's dragged his slash-line up to .203/.304/.420 and has now hit eight home runs and driven in 21. Get him in your lineups immediately if you were waiting. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:06 pm
  • Gonzalez's 3 hits contribute to Astros' win
    Marwin Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a pair of runs scored as the Astros held off the Tigers on Sunday.

    Advice: Jose Altuve wasn't in the lineup Sunday as he was getting a day of rest. Gonzalez took second base in his stead and performed admirably, contributing to a 10-run outburst on the afternoon. He's hitting .263/.271/.421 on the year with two home runs, 12 RBI, and 13 runs scored. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:49 pm
  • Lind fails to record hit against Foltynewicz
    Adam Lind went 0-for-3 with a strikeout and a walk in Sunday's loss to the Braves.

    Advice: Given that the Brewers managed just three hits total against Mike Foltynewicz and the Braves, Lind shouldn't feel too bad about taking the 0-for-3. The veteran first baseman has gone hit-less in his last eight at-bats, but is doing well on the macro level, with a .271/.361/.493 batting line, plus seven homers, 19 RBI and 17 runs scored. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:43 pm
  • Machado scores twice in loss to Marlins
    Manny Machado went 1-for-4 with two runs scored in Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: Machado scored in the sixth and eighth innings. They would be the only runs that the Orioles scored in the 5-4 loss. He also smacked a double, his 11th of the year. Machado is now hitting .286/.347/.474 with six homers, 19 RBI and 25 runs scored. He's starting to come through on some of his potential and upside. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:18 pm
  • Vogt knocks in two runs as Athletics top Rays
    Stephen Vogt went 0-for-1 with a pair of walks and a pair of sacrifice flies to help the Athletics beat the Rays on Sunday.

    Advice: Vogt made it 2-0 with a third-inning sacrifice fly, then added another in the ninth inning to make it 7-2. The catcher is likely headed to a spot on the American League All-Star roster, batting .306/.408/.605 with 10 home runs and 33 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Edwin Encarnacion homers again in Jays' win
    Edwin Encarnacion singled and ripped a two-run home run in Sunday's victory over the Mariners.

    Advice: Both Ryan Goins and Encarnacion went deep for the Jays in the fifth inning off of Taijuan Walker. Encarnacion still isn't hitting for average, but he's really found his power stroke of late with eight dingers over his last 16 contests. He has 12 homers and 32 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:07 pm
  • Kyle Seager goes deep in Mariners' loss
    Kyle Seager singled and belted a solo homer in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: He scored the Mariners' only two runs of the game, going deep in the second and then scoring on a sac fly in the seventh. Seager is starting to heat up, having homered in back-to-back games and while hitting .311 with five longballs over his last 16 contests. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:03 pm
  • Alonso (shoulder) nearing rehab assignment
    Yonder Alonso (shoulder) is expected to begin a rehab assignment with High-A Lake Elsinore on Wednesday.

    Advice: Padres manager Bud Black seemed pessimistic less than a week ago about Alonso's recovery from a bone bruise in his right shoulder, but the first baseman has apparently made great progress since then. He'll hit on the field on Monday. "I was able to go through my routine, I was able to hit some balls off the tee and hit some balls off front toss. Day by day, I'm increasing my load," he said. "I'm feeling good, responded well to [Friday's] work." Rotoworld.com

    5:10 pm vs Atl
  • Casey McGehee designated for assignment
    Giants designated 3B Casey McGehee for assignment.

    Advice: The Giants traded for McGehee over the winter in hopes that he'd pick up some of the offensive slack following the loss to Pablo Sandoval. It would be an understatement to say it didn't work out, as he hit just .200/.254/.282 and is now off the roster. Matt Duffy will be San Francisco's regular third baseman. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:10 am
     
    Not Active
  • Ryan Howard not in Sunday's lineup

  • Michael Morse benched again on Sunday
    Michael Morse remained out of the Marlins' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: That's now four straight games in which he's been benched in favor of Justin Bour. At the very least, it's looking like the struggling Morse finds himself on the short side of a platoon with Bour at the moment. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:01 am
  • Pedro Alvarez not in Sunday's lineup
    Pedro Alvarez is absent from the Pirates' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's on the bench in favor of Sean Rodriguez versus lefty Jon Niese. Alvarez has just one hit in 17 at-bats against left-handers this season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:38 am
  • Pablo Sandoval (knee) out again on Sunday
    Pablo Sandoval (knee) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Sandoval has been limited to just one pinch-hitting appearance since being hit on the left knee by a pitch Tuesday. He'll be available off the bench again Sunday but obviously isn't feeling well enough to return to the lineup just yet. Brock Holt is handling third base again Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:12 am
  • Napoli cracks two homers in win over Angels
    Mike Napoli hit two long homers and finished 2-for-3 with three RBI and a walk in Saturday's 8-3 win over the Angels.

    Advice: Napoli absolutely owned Angels starter C.J. Wilson on Saturday, smacking a laser of a solo homer in the second inning, then uncorking a two-run moonshot in the sixth that completely cleared the Green Monster. The Red Sox are dying for some kind of offensive production and it would be a welcome sign if Napoli could find a groove. He's hitting a disappointing .193/.292/.385 with seven homers, 16 RBI and 17 runs scored over 135 at-bats. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:37 pm
  • Moustakas exits game with clavicle contusion
    Mike Moustakas left Saturday's game against the Cardinals with a bruised clavicle.

    Advice: He got hit by a grounder in the top of the fifth inning. Christian Colon entered to play third base. Moustakas went 1-for-2 with a double before exiting. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 6:02 pm
  • Howard launches 10th homer in rout of Nats
    Ryan Howard launched his 10th home run of the season Saturday in the Phillies' 8-1 rout of the Nationals.

    Advice: He singled in the second, hit an RBI double in the third, and then slugged a ball 410 feet over the center-field fence in the fifth as the Phillies stunned Stephen Strasburg at Nationals Park. Howard's sudden resurgence at age 35 is one of the more intriguing storylines of the first half. He has an .865 OPS through 41 games. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:51 pm
  • Yasmani Grandal (concussion) placed on DL
    Dodgers placed C Yasmani Grandal on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

    Advice: Grandal suffered the injury Friday when Padres first baseman Yangervis Solarte hit him with his backswing. The Dodgers think he'll be back to normal soon but understandably wanted to be cautious. We'd expect A.J. Ellis to do most of the catching in his absence, though Austin Barnes could see time there as well. Barnes was called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday. Rotoworld.com

  • Prince Fielder homers again in rout of Yanks
    Prince Fielder homered again and plated three runs on Saturday, leading the Rangers in a 15-4 rout over the Yankees.

His two-run blast came off Branden Pinder in the seventh inning, increasing the Rangers lead to 15-1 at the time. He has been on fire at the dish in recent weeks and is now slashing a monster .351/.407/.544 with eight long balls and 30 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 1:13 pm
  • Michael Morse not in Marlins lineup Saturday
    Michael Morse is once again not in the Marlins starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: At this point, it appears that the slumping slugger has been surpassed by Justin Bour as the team's starting first baseman. Morse is hitting a dreadful .213/.270/.291 with two homers, 10 RBI and a 38/8 K/BB ratio in 127 at-bats on the year. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 12:51 pm
  • Pablo Sandoval remains out of Red Sox lineup
    Pablo Sandoval (knee) remains out of the Red Sox lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Sandoval is still available off the bench as a pinch-hitter, though his left knee is too sore to man the hot corner defensively. Brock Holt is getting another start in his place and will bat eighth against opposing left-hander C.J. Wilson. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 12:48 pm
  • Rendon to play in simulated games next week
    Anthony Rendon (knee, oblique) took full batting practice for the first time on Saturday and has been cleared to begin playing in simulated games next week.

    Advice: He'll play in a few simulated games in Viera early in the week before heading out on a minor league rehab assignment. At this stage, barring any setbacks, he should be cleared to rejoin the Nationals in early June. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:40 am
     
    15-Day DL
  • Stephen Vogt not in A's lineup on Saturday
    Stephen Vogt is not in the Athletics starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Rays.

    Advice: It's nothing more than a routine day of rest for Vogt, being an afternoon game after a night game. Josh Phegley is drawing the start behind the plate and batting sixth for the Athletics on Saturday. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:00 am
     
    1:05 pm vs Det
  • Brian McCann not in Yankees lineup Saturday
    Brian McCann is not in the Yankees starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: It's nothing more than a routine day of rest for the veteran backstop being a day game after a night game. John Ryan Murphy will get the start behind the plate and will hit eighth against Nick Martinez and the Rangers. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:53 am
  • Paul Goldschmidt hits 11th homer
    Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI against the Cubs on Friday.

    Advice: After the Cubs pulled ahead in the 10th, it was Goldschmidt's two-run homer that tied the game back up. He's certainly in the running for early NL MVP honors with his .331 average, 11 homers and 35 RBI in 41 games. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:11 pm
  • Brandon Belt goes 3-for-5, homers
    Brandon Belt went 3-for-5 and hit his fourth homer Friday at Coors Field.

    Advice: It's the fourth time in eight days that Belt has had three hits and homer. He's hitting .375 in May after coming in at .235 with no homers in April. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 10:35 pm
  • Yasmani Grandal day-to-day for now
    The Dodgers aren't sure whether Yasmani Grandal suffered a concussion Friday, but he won't play Saturday.

    Advice: It's possible Grandal will end up on the seven-day concussion DL, but that remains to be seen. A.J. Ellis will catch Saturday. Rotoworld.com

  • Machado knocks in three runs vs. Marlins
    Manny Machado drove in three runs in Friday's 8-5 win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Machado went 2-for-5 on the night and knocked in runs with a ground out in the fifth and a two-run double in the eighth. The 22-year-old has shown good patience out of the leadoff spot for the Orioles and owns a solid .285/.346/.472 batting line with six home runs, 19 RBI, seven stolen bases, and 23 runs scored over 39 games. He has all the ingredients of a fantasy stud. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:35 pm
  • Vogt launches solo home run
    Stephen Vogt launched a solo homer in Friday's loss to the Rays.

    Advice: It was his 10th home run of the season and his first since May 12. With a .309/.408/.610 batting line to go along with 31 RBI, the 30-year-old has been the top fantasy catcher so far this season. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Grandal attempted to remain in the game but had to be replaced by A.J. Ellis to start the fifth inning. He's likely to be evaluated for a possible concussion. Consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com

  • Fielder homers twice as Rangers top Yankees
    Prince Fielder blasted a pair of home runs and drove home four runs on Friday as the Rangers outlasted the Yankees 10-9 in a wild game in New York.

    Advice: The Rangers broke the game open by scoring seven runs in the third inning, with Fielder's three-run blast off starter Michael Pineda serving as the big blow. He tacked on a solo shot off Chasen Shreve in the seventh inning which would end up looming large. He's having a terrific season in the middle of the Rangers lineup, batting .341/.397/.521 with seven homers and 27 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:09 pm
  • Encarnacion hits his 11th home run

    Friday, 7:13 pm
  • Pablo Sandoval (knee) out again on Friday
    Pablo Sandoval (knee) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Sandoval remains available to pinch hit, but his left knee remains too sore when making throws. He hopes to return to the lineup at some point this weekend. Brock Holt is at third base Friday. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 1:29 pm

  • Braves inquired on catcher Jonathan Lucroy
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Braves inquired on Jonathan Lucroy but were told he was not available.

    Advice: The Brewers are going to be sellers prior to the trade deadline, but one guy they appear intent on keeping is Lucroy, who is under team control cheaply through 2017. Heyman adds that the Braves have been "disappointed" by the play of Christian Bethancourt, who is batting just .190/.215/.286 and hasn't been as good as expected defensively. Rotoworld.com

  • Edwin Encarnacion hits three-run homer
    Edwin Encarnacion hit a three-run homer Thursday off the Angels' Matt Shoemaker.

    Advice: It still feels like Encarnacion is off to a slow start, but here he is with 10 homers barely a quarter of the way into the season. He has six bombs and 18 RBI in 20 games this month. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 6:50 pm
  • Belt(wrist) says he's fine after hit by pitch
    Brandon Belt (wrist) indicated that he was fine after being hit by a pitch during Thursday's game against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Belt was drilled by a Clayton Kershaw offering and admitted that it caused him to have flashbacks to last year's wrist injury, but he insists that he's perfectly fine. He has finally started to show signs of life offensively this past week, so as long as he's in the lineup on Friday fantasy owners should continue rolling him out there. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 4:52 pm
  • Ryan Howard slugs ninth home run in loss
    Ryan Howard launched a solo homer Thursday against the Rockies.

    Advice: Howard sure enjoyed his visit to Colorado, as he collected six hits (including two home runs and a double) in 17 at-bats over the four games. After getting off to a slow start, the veteran first baseman now has nine home runs on the year to go along with an .828 OPS. Only Bryce Harper and Giancarlo Stanton have hit more home runs since April 21. Quite an unexpected turnaround for "The Big Piece." Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 3:39 pm
  • Seager ejected from Thursday's game
    Kyle Seager was ejected from Thursday's game against the Orioles in the fifth inning.

    Advice: Seager struck out looking in the top of the fifth inning and apparently didn't like the call, as he was tossed by home plate umpire John Tumpane. He went 2-for-3 with a run scored before exiting. Willie Bloomquist took over at third base. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 1:41 pm
  • Sandoval (knee) out of Red Sox lineup Thurs.

  • Goldschmidt out of Arizona lineup Thursday
    Paul Goldschmidt is not in Arizona's lineup Thursday.

    Advice: It's a rare day of rest for the star first baseman. Mark Trumbo will cover first and David Peralta is in left field. Goldschmidt is just 4-for-24 with two walks on the Diamondbacks' current road trip, but he's capable of busting out of the mini slump at any moment. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 6:45 am
  • Brian McCann reaches three times
    Brian McCann reached three times and delivered a sac fly Wednesday against the Rangers.

    Wednesday, 7:22 pm
  • Rendon hit and took grounders on Wednesday
    Anthony Rendon (knee, oblique) hit in a cage and took some grounders with the Nationals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Rendon was placed on the disabled list before Opening Day with a sprained MCL in his left knee and he suffered a strained oblique in early May while rehabbing that knee injury. The Nationals will continue to take it slowly with the 24-year-old third baseman. He's eventually going to need a minor league rehab assignment and remains highly doubtful to debut before the end of May. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 1:37 pm
     
    15-Day DL
  • Pablo Sandoval (knee) sitting out Wednesday
    Pablo Sandoval (knee) is not in the Red Sox' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Sandoval had to exit Tuesday's contest after being hit on the left knee with a pitch. Tests came back negative, but he's no doubt still sore. Consider Sandoval day-to-day. Brock Holt is filling in at third base. Rotoworld.com

  • Moustakas has three hits, two RBI vs. Reds
    Mike Moustakas went 3-for-4 with two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Moustakas had two RBI doubles in the affair, giving him 10 doubles and 15 RBI on the year. He's had multi-hit efforts in four of his past nine games, raising his overall line to .331/.388/.497. Rotoworld.com

  • Napoli launches fourth home run vs. Rangers
    Mike Napoli went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

    Advice: Napoli hit a solo home run in the bottom of the fourth inning before delivering an RBI single in the fifth. The occasional long ball has been about all Napoli has been good for this year -- he's hitting just .174/.275/.314 through 34 games. Rotoworld.com

  • Tests on Pablo Sandoval's knee are negative
    Tests on Pablo Sandoval's left knee came back negative.

    Advice: Sandoval left Tuesday's game against the Rangers after being hit on the knee by a pitch, but he's expected to be fine. Kung Fu Panda singled in one of his three at-bats before exiting. Consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com

  • Lind blasts seventh homer in win over Tigers
    Adam Lind homered in a 2-for-5 effort as the Brewers took down the Tigers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Lind hit the second of back-to-back-to-back home runs in the third inning against Anibal Sanchez. Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez hit the other two. Lind entered the game in a rut, going 2-for-24 over his last eight games. Nevertheless, he's still batting .295/.387/.543 with seven home runs and 19 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Yonder Alonso (shoulder) 'still a ways away'
    Padres manager Bud Black said Tuesday that Yonder Alonso (shoulder) is "still a ways away" from a return to the lineup.

    Advice: Alonso has already missed nearly two weeks of action with a right shoulder injury and has yet to be cleared to resume baseball activities. It's uncertain at this point how close he is to activities, but obviously the Padres aren't counting on getting him back soon. With Wil Myers (wrist) also out, the Pads are going with Yangervis Solarte at first base. Rotoworld.com

  • Morse batting seventh Tuesday
    Michael Morse will bat seventh Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Justin Bour got the start at first base, but Morse is back in there against Jeremy Hellickson. However, new Marlins manager Dan Jennings clearly wants to see him get it going before he considers putting him back near the middle of the order. The 33-year-old is batting just .208 with two home runs and a .553 OPS so far this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Belt goes 9-for-14 in weekend series vs. Reds
    Brandon Belt finished 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, and three runs scored Sunday against the Reds.

    Advice: Belt went 9-for-14 with three home runs, seven RBI, and eight runs scored in the Giants' final three games in Cincinnati, lifting his OPS from .732 to .901 in a three-day span. The 27-year-old could be headed toward a breakout season if his health cooperates. He would probably enjoy hitting in Great American Ball Park a little more often. Rotoworld.com

  • Grandal's single drives in only run in win
    Yasmani Grandal's run-scoring single in the fourth inning would be the only run scored in a 1-0 Dodger win over the Rockies on Sunday.

    Advice: Grandal finished the game 1-for-2 with a walk. The two-out RBI single off of Kyle Kendrick gave Grandal 17 RBI for the season. He's also hit four homers and scored 17 runs. The catcher's been in a groove offensively and has a season-slash of .301/.421/.484 while helping to lead the 24-13 Dodgers. Rotoworld.com

  • Encarnacion's pinch-hit homer not enough
    Edwin Encarnacion hit a pinch-hit, two-run homer in the ninth inning of Saturday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Encarnacion's two-run blast with two outs off of Luke Gregerson pulled the Blue Jays to within 6-5, but next batter Josh Donaldson flew out to end the game. Encarnacion is hitting .237/.312/.468 with nine home runs, 24 RBI and 23 runs scored. While the nine home runs look nice, Encarnacion slugged .547 last season and he's a fair ways off of that right now. Rotoworld.com

    Mike Napoli is not in the Red Sox lineup Saturday.

    Advice: Daniel Nava will start at first base against Mariners ace Felix Hernandez. It's just a day of rest for Napoli. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Morse not in Marlins lineup Saturday
    Michael Morse is not in the Marlins starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: It's nothing more than a routine day of rest for the struggling first baseman. Jeff Baker will get the start in his place and bat fifth against Braves southpaw Alex Wood. Rotoworld.com

  • Pablo Sandoval continues to struggle vs. LHP
    Pablo Sandoval went 0-for-3 against J.A. Happ on Friday to fall to 2-for-37 against left-handers this season.

    Advice: Sandoval has killed righties, but he's looked positively helpless batting right-handed. Considering that he was bad last year, too, it's about time he considers joining the club, which already boasts Shane Victorino and Daniel Nava as members, and giving up switch-hitting. The Red Sox don't really have an alternative for him against lefties; Sandoval's backup, Brock Holt, is a left-handed hitter. Rotoworld.com

  • Moustakas has four-hit night vs. Yankees
    Mike Moustakas was 4-for-5 with an RBI and three runs scored Friday against the Yankees.

    Advice: Moustakas had a single, two doubles, and a triple. His double in the seventh inning was very close to being a home run, which would have given him the cycle. Still, it was a fantastic night for the 26-year-old, who is batting .333/.392/.496 on the year and has embraced hitting to the opposite field. Rotoworld.com

  • Howard smacks RBI double in win
    Ryan Howard went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Friday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Howard hit his run-scoring double in the sixth inning after Diamondbacks starter Chase Anderson hit Freddy Galvis and walked Grady Sizemore. One run scored on the play, giving Howard 17 RBI for the season. In addition to the double, Howard also struck out once. He started out the season about as poorly as a hitter can start out a season, but the numbers have stabilized over the last month and he's now hitting .231/.291/.479. The average is unlikely to rise much higher, but at least the power is showing itself here and there. Rotoworld.com

  • Belt homers, knocks in four runs vs. Reds
    Brandon Belt hit his first home run of the season Friday against the Reds and knocked in four runs.

    Advice: Belt finally got off the schneid with a three-run shot off Jason Marquis in the first inning and later added an RBI double in the seventh. He went 3-for-5 on the night. While the power hasn't been there, the 27-year-old has been swinging the bat quite well of late. He's now hitting .333 this month. Rotoworld.com
    May 15, 7:28 pm
  • Goldschmidt hits double and drives in two
    Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-4 with a two-run double in Friday's loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: Goldschmidt's two-run double in the top of the seventh inning temporarily put the Diamondbacks up 3-1, but the Snake bullpen would immediately give the advantage back, as the Phillies scored three times in the bottom of the frame. Goldschmidt (.344/.446/.668 with nine homers, 30 RBI and 28 runs scored) is doing all he can to lift an inertia-less Diamondbacks team, but there's no sign that things are going to improve in the near future for his 15-19 squad.

  • Stephen Vogt sitting on Friday
    Stephen Vogt is not in the Athletics' lineup for Friday's game against the White Sox.

  • Lucroy (toe) cleared to catch bullpens
    Jonathan Lucroy (toe) has been cleared to catch bullpen sessions.

    Advice: The next and final step after that will be a clearance to begin running. The Brewers haven't set a firm timetable from Lucroy's return from a fractured left big toe, but he seems to be tracking towards an activation before the end of the month. Rotoworld.com
