  • Russell blasts grand slam on Wednesday
    Addison Russell cranked a grand slam against the White Sox on Wednesday.

    Advice: It was his only hit of the night but it was a big one. It was his 12th home run of the season in 379 plate appearances. He has a .248 batting average, 40 runs and 60 RBI in the Cubs strong lineup. Those are essentially league-average numbers, which is very good considering he is only 22 years old and still developing.

  • Raul Mondesi plates four runs to lead Royals
    Raul Mondesi went 2-for-4 and drove home four runs on Wednesday, leading the Royals to a come-from-behind 7-5 victory over the Angels.

    Advice: On two similar plays in the seventh and eighth innings, Mondesi reached on infield singles that each plated two runs. The first of which tied the game at 3-3 and rattled Angels starter Matt Shoemaker, while the latter increased the Royals advantage to 7-3 and proved to be the difference in the ballgame. He could be worth a look as a middle infield option in deeper mixed leagues now that he's in line for everyday at-bats for the Royals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:53 pm
  • Giavotella has three hits in loss to Royals
    Johnny Giavotella went 3-for-3 with a double as the Angels fell to the Royals on Wednesday.

    Advice: He also had a sacrifice bunt in the contest. With his three-hit effort, Giavotella is now hitting .274/.299/.399 with six homers, 28 RBI and four stolen bases. It's the second straight three-hit game for Giavotella against his former squad. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:47 pm
  • Desmond get two hits, cracks two-run bomb
    Ian Desmond homered and doubled in four at-bats on Wednesday night.

    Advice: His two-run bomb in the fifth inning was his 20th home run of the season. He is having an excellent bounce-back season with a .308/.359/.527 batting line. He has added 71 runs, 60 RBI and 16 stolen bases as well. He has already matched or exceeded his production totals from last year and still has two months to go. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:40 pm
  • Profar snares three hits and scores a run
    Jurickson Profar went 3-for-5 and scored a run in the Rangers' loss on Wednesday.

    Advice: One of the hits was a double. The former top overall prospect in baseball is finally healthy enough to help his fantasy owners. He is hitting .296/.349/.414 in 162 at-bats. Having played multiple games at every position except pitcher and catcher this year, his positional eligibility provides a huge boost to his fantasy value. Profar looks set to play pretty much every day moving forward unless the Rangers bring in some competition via trade or promotion. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:35 pm

  • Hernan Perez plates lone run in losing effort
    Hernan Perez went 1-for-2 and drove home the Brewers' lone run in Wednesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Perez brought home Jonathan Lucroy with a sacrifice fly in the seventh inning, pulling the Brewers to within seven runs at 8-1. He has been a pleasant surprise in the Brewers lineup this season, slashing .274/.301/.411 with five homers, 28 RBI and 14 stolen bases. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:14 pm

  • Diaz goes 2-for-5 with a run scored Wednesday
    Aledmys Diaz went 2-for-5 with a run scored as the Cardinals came back to win on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Diaz has been one of the biggest surprises in all of baseball this season. He is batting .312 with an .890 OPS as a rookie. He has 13 homers, 61 runs and 53 RBI. People have been expecting the 25-year-old shortstop's production to tail off but he has shown no signs of being a fluke. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:11 pm
  • Machado launches 21st home run on Wednesday
    Manny Machado cracked a solo home run for his only hit and the Orioles' only run of the night on Wednesday.

    Advice: Machado is having a fantastic season. Now slashing .311/.369/.552 with 21 longballs, 68 runs and 57 RBI. The only thing he doesn't do is run -- he hasn't stolen a base all year after swiping 20 last year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:35 pm
  • Mercer gets three hits and three runs
    Jordy Mercer went 3-for-5 with an RBI and scored three times on Wednesday.

    Advice: Mercer has been good enough to be rostered in fantasy leagues this year. He is batting .282/.361/.393 with six home runs, 40 runs and 35 RBI. That's not good enough to start for a championship-caliber fantasy team but he can be useful as a backup. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:11 pm
  • Indians possibly eyeing Steve Pearce
    The New York Post's Joel Sherman reports that the Indians are "among several teams" who have asked about Steve Pearce.

    Advice: The Indians have been tied to several players in trade rumors. In addition to Pearce, they have reportedly been looking into Eduardo Nunez, Will Smith and Jonathan Lucroy. Pearce, 33, is slashing .313/.386/.530 with 10 homers and 29 RBI over 198 at-bats. He has notched double-digit home runs in three consecutive seasons. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:12 pm
  • Arroyo leads Squirrels with three hits Tuesday
    Giants SS prospect Christian Arroyo supplied three hits and a stolen base Tuesday in a win for Double-A Richmond.

    Advice: He scored four of the Flying Squirrels' 10 runs while adding a double and two singles. Arroyo has crushed the ball over his last 10 games, hitting .366 with seven RBI during that span. Arroyo hasn't hit for much power (only two homers in 91 games), but he leads the Eastern League with 30 doubles and owns a team-best .285 batting average over 361 at-bats this season.

  • Trea Turner goes 3-for-4 with three RBI
    Trea Turner finished 3-for-4 with three RBI in the Nationals' 4-1 win over the Indians on Wednesday.

    Advice: Turner opened the game's scoring with a two-run line-drive single in the top of the second inning and then tallied his third RBI on a double in the top of the seventh. He also doubled in the top of the first, but it didn't lead to anything. The young speedster is now batting .319/.360/.511 with six extra-base hits, six RBI, and five steals in 12 games this season. He started in center field for the second straight game Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:34 pm
  • Daniel Murphy slugs his 20th home run
    Daniel Murphy slugged his 20th home run of the season on Wednesday against the Indians.

    Advice: Murphy took Carlos Carrasco deep for a solo shot in the top of the sixth inning. He also singled in the 4-1 victory, finishing 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored. Murphy has an incredible .351/.388/.621 batting line with 75 RBI through 96 games this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:24 pm
  • JaCoby Jones explodes for three hits Tuesday
    Tigers OF/INF prospect JaCoby Jones homered and drove in two runs Tuesday in Triple-A Toledo's loss to Durham.

    Advice: He also recorded his 10th stolen base. His three hits matched a season-high while Jones' two-run homer in the seventh was his first round-tripper in over a month. Jones has had a tough time adjusting to Triple-A, batting only .231 with 57 strikeouts in 169 at-bats. He hit .312 with four homers and 20 RBI for Double-A Erie before getting called up in early June. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:21 pm

  • Ramiro Pena scratched with sore groin
    Ramiro Pena was scratched from the Giants' lineup on Wednesday due to a sore groin.

    Advice: Pena took a baseball to a bad place on Tuesday night and wasn't feeling so hot during pregame drills on Wednesday. Grant Green will start at second base versus the Reds. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:10 pm

  • White Sox recall Carlos Sanchez from AAA
    White Sox recalled INF Carlos Sanchez from Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Sanchez will give the White Sox much-needed infield depth with Brett Lawrie (hamstring) landing on the disabled list. He should see some starts at second base, but there's not much fantasy intrigue here. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:08 pm
  • White Sox place Lawrie (hamstring) on DL
    White Sox placed INF Brett Lawrie on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 22, with a hamstring strain.

    Advice: Lawrie suffered the injury last Thursday and wasn't making enough progress on the side. He should be ready in early August. Carlos Sanchez will join the White Sox in a corresponding 25-man roster move. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:07 pm

  • Hernandez (rib cage) moves rehab to Double-A
    Enrique Hernandez (rib cage) has moved his minor league rehab assignment to Double-A Tulsa.

    Advice: He was 3-for-8 with a double and two walks in two games with High-A Rancho Cucamonga. Hernandez has been on the disabled list since late June because of left rib cage inflammation. He should be ready for activation early next week. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:29 am

  • Tulo absent from Jays' lineup on Wednesday
    Troy Tulowitzki is getting the day off Wednesday.

    Advice: Darwin Barney will start at shortstop and bat eighth versus Padres right-hander Luis Perdomo. This is just a day of maintenance for Tulo, who's batting .317/.348/.500 with four homers and 17 RBI so far in July. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:29 am
  • Yangervis Solarte placed on family leave list
    Padres placed 3B Yangervis Solarte on the family medical emergency leave list.

  • Trea Turner starting in CF on Wednesday
    Trea Turner is making his second straight start in center field Wednesday versus the Indians.

    Advice: He will also bat leadoff for the Nationals against Indians right-hander Carlos Carrasco. Turner made his first career start in center field on Tuesday night and had some issues, but it's the best spot for him at the moment under the Nats' current roster construction. He should be athletic enough to make it work. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:27 am
  • Crawford hits two-run triple in win over Reds
    Brandon Crawford went 3-for-5 with a two-run triple and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Crawford raced around the bases for a two-run triple in the seventh inning. The three-bagger was his fifth of the season. He also hit a pair of singles in the contest. For the season, the 29-year-old shortstop is slashing .275/.344/.433 with nine homers and 63 RBI over 342 at-bats. He has been an integral cog in the Giants machine this season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:45 pm
  • Brad Miller notches RBI double in loss to LAD
    Brad Miller went 1-for-5 with an RBI double in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Miller hit a run-scoring double off Joe Blanton in the eighth inning. The Rays would ultimately bring home two runs in the frame, but wouldn't score again as they fell by a score of 3-2. For the season as a whole, Miller has quietly put together a nice campaign, slashing .244/.292/.457 with 15 homers, 37 RBI and four steals over 324 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:20 pm

  • Semien hits 21st homer in win over Rangers
    Marcus Semien went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

    Advice: Semien connected for a solo dinger off Rangers starter Nick Martinez in the fifth inning, his 21st big fly of the year. That's easily a personal best for the 25-year-old, who will also set a new high for RBI in a season this year. Overall, Semien is hitting .236/.303/.460 with 49 RBI, 49 runs scored and nine steals. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:49 pm
  • Gennett stuffs stat sheet, Brewers roll late
    Scooter Gennett went 2-for-3 with three RBI, a stolen base and a run scored as the Brewers used a late surge to down the Diamondbacks 9-4 on Tuesday.

    Advice: As he did seemingly all night, Gennett had a large part in the Brewers' five-run eighth inning that sealed the win. The second baseman got the scoring started in the inning with a two-run single, and he later came around to score. Gennett has been finding ways to contribute in recent days, and the 26-year-old is hitting .264/.319/.414 with nine homers, 33 RBI, 36 runs scored and six steals in 78 games overall. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:37 pm
  • Giavotella has three hits, three runs Tuesday
    Johnny Giavotella went 3-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI and three runs scored Tuesday against the Royals.

    Advice: Giavotella also threw in a stolen base for good measure. The big night raised Giavotella's line to .267/.293/.390 with 28 RBI, 43 runs scored and four steals. It certainly had to feel good coming against his former team to boot. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:10 pm
  • Brett Lawrie (hamstring) to be placed on DL
    Brett Lawrie is headed to the disabled list with a hamstring strain.

    Advice: Lawrie suffered the injury last Thursday and hasn't played since, so the move will be made retroactive to July 22. Carlos Sanchez is expected to replace him. Look for an official update on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:22 pm
    15-Day DL
    5:05 pm @ChC
     
  • Trea Turner starting in CF on Tuesday night
    Trea Turner will start in center field Tuesday against the Indians.

    Advice: Turner saw some time in center field in the minors, but this will be his first start at the position in the majors. He should see more time there with Ryan Zimmerman (rib cage) back from the disabled list. Turner is batting leadoff Tuesday while Ben Revere will play left and bat eighth. Jayson Werth is in the DH spot. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:33 pm
  • Lawrie (hamstring) out again Tuesday
    Brett Lawrie (hamstring) is out of the starting lineup again Tuesday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Lawrie hasn't played since leaving Thursday's game with tightness in his left hamstring. It's unclear if the White Sox are thinking about a stint on the disabled list. Tyler Saladino will continue to fill in at second base. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:27 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Royals call up INF Raul Mondesi from AAA
    Royals recalled INF Raul Mondesi from Triple-A Omaha.

    Advice: In turn, the struggling Whit Merrifield has been sent down. Regarded as the Royals' top position prospect, Mondesi has missed a big chunk of the season after serving a 50-game PED suspension, but he has played well since his promotion to Triple-A earlier this month. His plate discipline is shaky, so we're not convinced he'll see immediate success in the majors, but the Royals are looking for a spark and his speed could come in handy in deeper fantasy leagues assuming he gets regular starts at second base. Mondesi, who turns 21 on Wednesday, made his major league debut in the World Series last year, but he has yet to appear in a regular season game. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:23 am
  • Addison Russell starts, goes 0-for-3

  • Gennett hits one of four Brewers homers
    Scooter Gennett singled and ripped a solo home run in Monday's victory over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Gennett got the scoring going with a deep blast to center field in the first inning. It was one of four dingers the Brewers had on the night, as Jonathan Villar, Martin Maldonado and Andy Wilkins also went deep. Gennett has already tied his career high with nine home runs. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:08 pm
  • Addison Russell exits game with heel injury
    Addison Russell exited Sunday's game against the Brewers with a bruised left heel.

    Advice: He fouled a ball off the heel Saturday and it got progressively sore on him Sunday. The Cubs are saying his removal was precautionary, so consider Russell day-to-day. Javier Baez is likely to fill in at shortstop for any amount of time that Russell might miss. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:03 pm
  • Addison Russell exits with undisclosed injury
    Addison Russell departed Sunday's game against the Brewers with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: Russell was pulled after flying out to end the fourth inning. He didn't suffer any obvious injury, but the Cubs should provide more on his status shortly. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:47 pm
  • Carlos Sanchez recalled from Triple-A
    White Sox recalled INF Carlos Sanchez from Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: He'll serve as the 26th man with the Tigers having to complete a suspended game Sunday in addition to their regularly scheduled contest. Sanchez is hitting just .161 across 31 at-bats for the White Sox this year. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:49 am
  • Rays demanding Profar if dealing with Texas
    Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Rays have demanded Jurickson Profar be included if they are to deal one of their available starting pitchers to the Rangers.

    Advice: Chris Archer, Jake Odorizzi and Matt Moore are all said to be available for the right price, and it appears that price must include Profar if the Rangers are going to land a major upgrade to their starting rotation. The Rangers have said no thus far, but as things get closer to the trade deadline we'll see if their position changes. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:32 am

  • Jurickson Profar goes hitless in loss
    Jurickson Profar went 0-for-3 with a HBP on Friday to drop his average under .300 for the first time since his second game of the season.

    Advice: Profar is hitting .229 with just two extra-base hits (both homers) in 83 at-bats since June 11. He could get more consistent playing time now with Prince Fielder done, but the Rangers might get more production from giving those at-bats to Joey Gallo instead. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:26 pm

  • Daniel Murphy leaves the yard in loss Friday
    Daniel Murphy clubbed his 19th home run of the season on Friday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Nationals past the Padres.

    Advice: Murphy's solo shot in the eighth inning pulled the Nats to within two runs at 5-3, but that would be as close as they would come. He continues to pummel the baseball, slashing .348/.387/.612 with 19 long balls, 70 RBI and three stolen bases in an impressive debut season with the Nats. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:06 pm
  • Brad Miller not in Rays lineup on Friday
    Brad Miller is not in the Rays starting lineup for Friday's showdown against the Mariners.

    Advice: He'll take a seat against his former club with southpaw James Paxton on the hill for the Mariners. The hot-hitting Tim Beckham will start in his place at shortstop and bat seventh for the Rays on Friday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:44 pm

    Brett Lawrie (hamstring) will undergo an MRI Friday.

    Advice: Lawrie was forced to leave Thursday's game with tightness in his left hamstring, and he was still feeling sore when he got to the ballpark Friday.

    Advice: He's just getting a breather. Danny Valencia is also sitting out, as the A's are going with Arismendy Alcantara at shortstop, Yonder Alonso at first base, Khris Davis in the designated hitter spot, Jake Smolinski in center field and Coco Crisp in left. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:46 pm
  • Rays receiving inquiries on Steve Pearce
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Rays "are getting some calls" on Steve Pearce and there's a "decent chance he gets moved by the deadline."

    Advice: It makes sense that there would be interest in Pearce, as he's a versatile player who's having a great year with a .322/.393/.522 batting line. He's also owed less than $2 million for the rest of the season before hitting free agency this winter. Crasnick lists the Giants and Indians as clubs that are "among potential fits" for Pearce, with the Mets also a potential possibility. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:57 am
  • Diaz completes comeback with walk-off single
    Aledmys Diaz hit a walk-off single to complete the comeback against the Padres on Thursday, giving the Cardinals a 6-5 win.

    Advice: Down 5-1 in the eighth inning, the Cardinals scored four to tie the game, and Diaz came up with the bases loaded and one out in the ninth inning with a chance to be a hero. He did just that, lining a Carlos Villanueva pitch over the shortstop's head to bring home the winning run. Diaz finished 2-for-5 with two RBI in the game. The 25-year-old is hitting .319/.387/.533 with 13 homers, 51 RBI and 61 runs scored in a breakout rookie season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:53 pm
  • Solarte homers among three hits vs. Cardinals
    Yangervis Solarte went 3-for-4 with a home run in a loss to the Cardinals on Thursday.

    Advice: Solarte hit a solo dong in the eighth inning, his 10th homer of the year. He finished the proverbial triple shy of the cycle in the game. Amidst a down year for the Padres, the 29-year-old Solarte is having a quietly good season, batting .297/.366/.530 with 39 RBI and 27 runs scored in 56 games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:49 pm

  • Perez has RBI double, run scored vs. Bucs
    Hernan Perez went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored Thursday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Perez was one of the few Brewers able to get to Pirates starter Francisco Liriano, knocking the run-scoring double in the seventh inning.

    Advice: Amarista was sent out with Brett Wallace returning from the paternity leave list. The 27-year-old is batting .239/.299/.261 in 98 plate appearances at the major league level this year. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:07 pm
  • Machado (flu) returns to Orioles' lineup
    Manny Machado is in the Orioles' lineup Thursday.

    Advice: Machado sat out Wednesday's game while battling through the same flu bug that has affected Chris Davis and manager Buck Showalter. Manny is starting at third base and batting third Thursday versus the Yankees. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:18 am
  • Machado (illness) not in lineup versus Yanks
    Manny Machado (illness) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Yankees.

    Advice: The Orioles' clubhouse has been racked by a wildfire-esque stomach bug which has sidelined Machado, Chris Davis and Matt Wieters. Ryan Flaherty will bat eighth and handle the hot corner in Machado's absence. It is possible that Davis or Machado could be used in a pinch should the O's run into the need. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:49 pm
  • Perez plates both Brewers runs against Bucs
    Hernan Perez finished 2-for-4 with two RBI in a loss to the Pirates on Tuesday.

    Advice: Perez had an RBI groundout in the fourth inning, but it was his hit with two runners on and two outs in the ninth inning -- against Pirates closer Mark Melancon, no less -- that tied the game briefly. In 55 games as a part-timer, the 25-year-old is hitting .267/.289/.411 with five homers, 24 RBI, 13 runs scored and 10 stolen bases. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:18 pm

  • Turner swats two-run triple against Dodgers
    Trea Turner hit a two-run triple in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Playing second base and batting leadoff, Turner hit the triple and later scored as part of the Nationals' three-run eighth inning. The triple was the first of his major league career after he hit 17 in 268 minor league games. The runs batted in were also his first of the season in six games played. The speedy 23-year-old is hitting .318/.348/.455 in those six games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:39 pm
  • Rangers getting 'tons of calls' on Profar
    T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports that the Rangers are getting "tons of calls" on Jurickson Profar.

    Advice: The Rangers' biggest need is starting pitching, so the question is whether they'll find anything that motivates them to trade Profar. Sullivan notes that the Rangers have interest in Matt Moore, Jake Odorizzi and Drew Smyly from the Rays, but that might not be enough to part with Profar. Sullivan also mentions the Brewers' Jonathan Lucroy as a potential target. Profar essentially missed two years due to shoulder issues, but he's still just 23 years old and has impressed with a .318/.366/.455 batting line in 142 plate appearances with the Rangers this season.
