  • Belt (neck) scratched from Saturday's lineup
    Brandon Belt was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup against the Braves due to a stiff neck.

    Advice: It's probably safe to call him day-to-day. Conor Gillaspie will fill in at first base and bat fifth. Today, 5:53 pm
    Top 6, 1-3 vs Atl
  • Melky Cabrera (flu) returns to Sox lineup
    Melky Cabrera (flu) is back in the White Sox lineup Saturday against the Mariners.

  • Blackmon goes deep twice to power Rockies
    Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-6 and clobbered a pair of home runs as the Rockies dispatched of the Nationals 9-4 in 11 innings in Washington on Saturday afternoon.

    Advice: Blackmon's solo shot off of Alex Cole in the third inning opened the scoring in the contest. He then blasted a game-changing two-run homer off of Yusmeiro Petit in the 11th inning that proved to be the difference in the ballgame. Blackmon finished the afternoon 3-for-6 with three runs scored and three RBI and is now hitting .318/,378/.540 with 23 long balls, 63 RBI and 15 stolen bases on the season. Today, 2:58 pm
  • Bryce Harper tossed for arguing Saturday
    Bryce Harper was ejected for arguing balls and strikes Saturday against the Rockies.

    Advice: Harper got his money's worth on this one. He slammed his helmet down right in front of home plate umpire Mike Winters after a called strike three in the 10th inning and was immediately tossed. Before his outburst, Harper went 1-for-4 with a walk and an RBI double. Chris Heisey replaced him in right field. Harper will almost certainly be fined for his behavior and could even be looking at a short suspension. This was Harper's eighth career ejection and his second of the season. Today, 2:47 pm
    L, 9-4 vs Col
  • Oswaldo Arcia resurfaces with Padres
    Padres claimed OF Oswaldo Arcia off waivers from the Marlins.

  • Danny Valencia not in A's lineup on Saturday
    Danny Valencia is not in the Athletics starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Cardinals.

    Advice: It appears to be just a day of rest for Valencia. Ryan Healy is getting the start at the hot corner while Yonder Alonso mans first base for the A's against Alex Reyes and the Cardinals. Today, 12:35 pm
    W, 3-2 @StL
  • Tigers designate Alex Presley for assignment
    Tigers designated OF Alex Presley for assignment.

    Advice: Presley was only with the club for a limited time as an extra bat off the bench, going 1-for-5 at the plate. There's a chance he could be scooped up off of waivers, otherwise he'll continue to provide organizational outfield depth for the Tigers. Today, 12:17 pm

  • Scott Van Slyke to undergo wrist surgery
    Scott Van Slyke is set to undergo season-ending surgery on his right wrist.

    Advice: He sustained the injury in May and there had been hope that he could rehab and return before the end of the season, but they'll opt for surgery instead. He should be fully recovered and ready to go for spring training. Today, 11:22 am
    60-Day DL
    W, 3-2 vs ChC
  • Jason Heyward not in Cubs lineup on Saturday
    Jason Heyward is not in the Cubs starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers.

    Advice: He'll get a routine day of rest with left-hander Julio Urias on the hill for the Dodgers. Ben Zobrist is sliding over to start in right field while Javier Baez gets the start at second base and will bat eighth for the Cubs. Today, 9:53 am
  • Adam Jones not in Orioles lineup on Saturday
    Adam Jones (hamstring) is not in the Orioles starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Jones was forced to exit Friday's game due to a strained left hamstring. He is listed as available on Saturday and isn't expected to require a trip to the disabled list. Julio Borbon is starting in his place in center field and batting ninth for the O's Today, 8:30 am
    L, 13-5 @NYY
  • Jorge Soler goes 0-for-4
    Jorge Soler went 0-for-4 before being lifted from Friday's game against the Dodgers.

    Advice: He also had a really ugly play in left field in which a ball that should have been caught bounced in front of him and then by him. It didn't hurt the Cubs, though, since it came with two outs and no one on and the next batter was retired. Still, Soler's glove is a problem and he's cooled off some of late after his fast start in his return from the DL. He might be a bit player down the stretch. Yesterday, 11:01 pm
  • Josh Reddick goes 1-for-5 in loss
    Josh Reddick went 1-for-5 and got picked off first base following his lone hit Friday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Reddick's first stint in the NL couldn't be going any worse. He's played in 21 games for the Dodgers without driving in a run in any of them. If he can't turn it around soon, he could start logging bench time next month, assuming that Yasiel Puig is recalled. Yesterday, 10:57 pm
    W, 3-2 vs ChC
  • Gattis hits dramatic walk-off HR vs. Rays
    Evan Gattis slugged a walk-off solo homer in Friday’s 5-4 victory over the Rays.

    Advice: Carlos Correa led off the bottom of the ninth with a game-tying solo homer off Alex Colome and Gattis followed him with a long home run which hit the train behind the Crawford Boxes in left field. The 30-year-old went 2-for-4 with two RBI on the evening. He has gone deep in back-to-back games and now sits at 21 homers on the year. Yesterday, 10:09 pm
    W, 6-2 vs TB
  • Ozuna drives in two in win over Padres
    Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-5 with two RBI in Friday’s victory over the Padres.

    Advice: Ozuna got the Marlins on the board in the first inning with an RBI double and later added an RBI single in the seventh inning, which jumpstarted the team’s comeback effort. This was just Ozuna’s second multi-hit game in his last 25 games. It has been a rough month for the 25-year-old, but he has the ability to finish strong. Yesterday, 9:19 pm
  • Francoeur has three hits, scores winning run
    Jeff Francoeur went 3-for-4 with a walk and a run scored Friday against the Padres.

    Advice: All three hits were singles. Francoeur reached on an infield single to begin the bottom of the ninth inning and eventually came around to score the winning run on Chris Johnson’s ground-rule double. We’re not expecting much fantasy value with the move to Miami, but he’s capable of being a useful piece against left-handed pitching. Yesterday, 9:18 pm
  • Adam Jones leaves game with hamstring strain
    Adam Jones was forced to leave Friday's game against the Yankees due to a strained left hamstring.

    Advice: O's skipper Buck Showalter indicated afterwards that Jones is in roughly the same spot that he was in yesterday. It's a day-to-day situation and won't require a trip to the disabled list, though don't be surprised if he sits out Saturday's contest as a precautionary measure. Yesterday, 7:48 pm
    L, 13-5 @NYY
  • Adam Jones leaves with potential re-injury
    Adam Jones was pulled from Friday's game against the Yankees after appearing to re-injure his hamstring.

    Advice: Jones left Thursday's game with cramping in his hamstring, but tested it out pregame and was deemed good to go on Friday. He appeared to re-injure it though while running to first base on in his first at-bat. Expect the O's to provide an update on his status shortly. Yesterday, 4:44 pm
    L, 13-5 @NYY
  • Adam Jones (hamstring) back in O's lineup
    Adam Jones (hamstring) is back in the Orioles' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Jones exited Thursday's game with hamstring cramps, but he's fine. He's in center field and batting leadoff. Yesterday, 1:10 pm
    L, 13-5 @NYY
  • Adam Jones leaves with hamstring cramps
    Adam Jones left Thursday's game against the Nationals due to hamstring cramps.

    Advice: Pedro Alvarez pinch-hit for him in the ninth inning. He went 1-for-3 with a double before exiting. Jones said that he feels fine and expects to play Friday against the Yankees. Nolan Reimold would likely start in his place if he has to sit out the series opener. Thursday, 8:03 pm
    L, 13-5 @NYY
  • Van Slyke (wrist) transferred to 60-day DL
    Dodgers transferred OF Scott Van Slyke to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: That opens up a spot for Shawn Zarraga on the 40-man roster. With less than two months to go, this move effectively ends Van Slyke's season. He was hitting .225 before a right wrist injury sent him to the disabled list in early May. Thursday, 7:36 pm
    60-Day DL
    W, 3-2 vs ChC
  • Harper has two RBI, stolen base against O's
    Bryce Harper went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a stolen base Thursday against the Orioles.

    Advice: Harper hit a two-run double in the eighth inning to push the Nationals' lead to four runs. He has officially busted out of whatever slump was plaguing him in recent months, as Thursday was his sixth multi-hit game in his last nine contests. He's now got 18 stolen bases to go with 22 home runs, 70 RBI, 68 runs and a .251/.387/.458 line. Thursday, 7:36 pm
    L, 9-4 vs Col
  • Melky Cabrera (flu) not in Thursday's lineup
    Melky Cabrera (flu) is not in the White Sox lineup Thursday against the Mariners.

    Advice: Cabrera is feeling a bit under the weather. Avisail Garcia will fill in at left field and bat fifth Thursday against Seattle left-hander James Paxton. Cabrera carries an excellent .294 average over 453 at-bats for the Pale Hose this year. Thursday, 3:46 pm
  • Fish designate Oswaldo Arcia for assignment
    Marlins designated OF Oswaldo Arcia for assignment.

    Advice: Arcia made it just one game with the Fish, getting the boot Thursday to clear a roster spot for new outfielder Jeff Francoeur after being claimed off waivers from the Rays on Tuesday. Arcia has batted just .226/.299/.390 with six home runs and 19 RBI in 177 plate appearances this season between Minnesota, Tampa Bay, and Miami. Thursday, 12:36 pm
  • Soler (leg) returns with a 2-for-3 on Wed.
    Jorge Soler (leg) went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI in his return to action Wednesday.

  • Reddick (finger) goes 0-for-3 in return Wed.
    Josh Reddick went 0-for-3 (finger) in his return to the Dodgers' lineup on Wednesday.

    W, 3-2 vs ChC
  • Marlins announce trade for OF Jeff Francoeur
    Marlins acquired OF Jeff Francoeur from the Braves as part of a three-team trade.

    Advice: Atlanta received minor league catcher Matthew Foley from the Marlins and infield prospect Dylan Moore from the Rangers, sending international bonus pool slot No. 93 to Texas in return. Miami gave up international bonus slots No. 37 and No. 97 to the Rangers. Got all that? Francoeur was batting just .249/.290/.381 with seven home runs and 33 RBI through 276 plate appearances this season for the Braves, but the Marlins were desperate for outfield help with Giancarlo Stanton (groin) ruled out for the remainder of the year. Francoeur figures to see semi-regular starts against left-handed pitching in Miami. Wednesday, 7:23 pm
  • Francoeur heads to Miami in three-team deal
    Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports Jeff Francoeur is headed to the Marlins as part of a three-team trade.

    Advice: Rangers minor league shortstop Dylan Moore will be sent to the Braves and Texas will get international spending money from both Atlanta and Miami. There are some other elements to the trade. Francoeur passed through revocable waivers earlier this month, making him eligible to be dealt to any team. He is batting just .249/.290/.381 with seven home runs and 33 RBI in 276 plate appearances this season for Atlanta, but the Marlins need a right-handed outfield bat with Giancarlo Stanton (groin) done for 2016. Wednesday, 6:14 pm
  • Ozuna (family emergency) in lineup on Wed.
    Marcell Ozuna is in the Marlins' starting lineup on Wednesday night against the Royals.

    Advice: Ozuna made an early exit from Tuesday's game because of a private family emergency. He is starting in center field and batting cleanup Wednesday at home versus Kansas City right-hander Dillon Gee. Wednesday, 12:13 pm
  • Blackmon (toe) goes 1-for-5 in return Tues.
    Charlie Blackmon (toe) finished 1-for-5 with a run scored in his return to the Rockies' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Brewers.

    Advice: He struck out in three of his five trips to the plate as the Rockies fell at Milwaukee. Blackmon had missed four straight starts because of a bruised right toe. Wednesday, 5:50 am
  • Reddick (finger) draws walk, scores run
    Josh Reddick (finger) drew a walk and scored a run as a pinch-hitter on Tuesday.

    Advice: Reddick was held out of the Dodgers' starting lineup for the second straight game after jamming his right middle finger while having room service delivered in Cincinnati on Sunday. Including that walk on Tuesday night against the Giants, the 29-year-old outfielder is batting .149/.219/.164 in 73 plate appearances with Los Angeles. Maybe he can finish strong. Wednesday, 5:44 am
    W, 3-2 vs ChC
  • Ozuna leaves game due to family emergency
    Marcell Ozuna made an early exit from Tuesday's game against the Royals due to a family emergency.

    Advice: Ozuna was 1-for-3 before getting taken out of the lineup in the eighth inning. There aren't any details available yet. Robert Andino entered the game to play left field with Christian Yelich shifting over to center. Tuesday, 6:32 pm
  • Josh Reddick (finger) remains sidelined Tues.
    Josh Reddick (finger) remains out of the Dodgers' starting lineup on Tuesday night.

    Advice: Reddick jammed his right middle finger on Sunday night while having room service delivered and sat out Monday afternoon's series finale in Cincinnati. He was able to take batting practice on Tuesday evening, which is obviously a strong indication that the injury is not serious. Rob Segedin will start in right field and bat seventh Tuesday versus Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner. Tuesday, 5:32 pm
    W, 3-2 vs ChC
  • Marlins claim OF Oswaldo Arcia off waivers
    Marlins claimed OF Oswaldo Arcia off waivers from the Rays.

    Advice: The Rays designated him for assignment on Friday. This will be the third team Arcia has played for in 2016. The 25-year-old hasn't hit much this year (.229 with six homers in 157 at-bats) but he'll give the Marlins some outfield depth while Giancarlo Stanton recovers from a strained groin. Tuesday, 12:15 pm
  • Blackmon (toe) appears as pinch-hitter
    Charlie Blackmon (toe) struck out as a pinch-hitter to end Monday's game against the Brewers.

    Advice: Blackmon has missed four straight starts with a bruised right toe, but that he appeared as a pinch-hitter is a sign that he's getting close to returning. He's considered day-to-day. Tuesday, 5:14 am
  • Jason Heyward hits sixth homer
    Jason Heyward hit his sixth homer of the year Monday against the Padres.

    Advice: It was his second homer in two months, and it gave him his first two RBI since Aug. 5. It's probably going to take more than just the one for him to regain his confidence. Monday, 10:41 pm
  • Valencia will be back in lineup Tuesday
    Danny Valencia will return to the lineup Tuesday, according to Athletics manager Bob Melvin.

    Advice: Valencia was fined as a result of his altercation with teammate Billy Butler over the weekend, but no suspension is expected to be levied. Butler was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list as a result of the clubhouse fight. Monday, 4:41 pm
    W, 3-2 @StL
  • Reddick got finger caught in door
    Josh Reddick said after Monday's game that he injured his right middle finger Sunday night when he got his hand caught in a door while ordering room service.

    Advice: Because his tenure with the Dodgers hasn't been rough enough already. Reddick was scratched from Monday's lineup as a result and called the injury "rock bottom." The 29-year-old is batting just .152/.211/.167 through 71 plate appearances since being acquired by the Dodgers. It's unclear when he'll be ready to return. Monday, 2:45 pm
    W, 3-2 vs ChC
  • Jason Heyward back in Cubs' lineup Monday
    Jason Heyward is back in the Cubs' lineup Monday against the Padres.

    Advice: The struggling Heyward was held out of the lineup for the entire weekend series at Coors Field, but he's back in there Monday and hitting sixth against Edwin Jackson. Kris Bryant will start in left field Monday while Javier Baez plays third. Monday, 2:25 pm
  • Blackmon (toe) out of lineup again Monday
    Charlie Blackmon (toe) is out of the Rockies' starting lineup again Monday versus the Brewers.

    Advice: Blackmon has now missed four straight starts with a bruised right big toe. Consider him day-to-day for now. Both David Dahl and Gerardo Parra are in the outfield again on Monday. Monday, 1:23 pm
  • Reddick scratched Monday with jammed finger
    Josh Reddick was scratched from the Dodgers' starting lineup on Monday due to a jammed middle finger on his right hand.

    Advice: Andrew Toles will start in his place against Reds right-hander Homer Bailey. Reddick has been a disappointment so far with Los Angeles, slashing .152/.211/.167 with zero homers and zero RBI in 71 plate appearances. He said he's unsure how or when he suffered the jammed finger. Monday, 7:55 am
    W, 3-2 vs ChC
  • Harper smashes three-run homer in extras loss
    Bryce Harper went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run in Sunday's 7-6, 10-inning loss to the Braves.

    Advice: Harper crushed a three-run home run in the third inning to boost the Nationals to a 4-0 advantage, but they couldn't hold it and the Braves would eventually win the game on a Jace Peterson homer in the bottom of the 10th inning. For his part, Harper is now hitting .246/.386/.459 with 22 homers and 68 RBI across 386 at-bats. After a torrid start to the season, his numbers have cooled off dramatically into the summer. Sunday, 3:37 pm
    L, 9-4 vs Col
  • Jorge Soler scratched with sore leg
    Jorge Soler was scratched from Sunday's lineup with a sore leg.

    Advice: Soler fouled a ball off his leg during Saturday's game and is apparently still sore. Consider him day-to-day. Matt Szczur has assumed his spot in the lineup. Sunday, 10:46 am
  • Blackmon (toe) likely out a few more days
    Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Saturday that he expected Charlie Blackmon (toe) to miss a couple more starts.

    Advice: He's already missed two starts with a bruised right big toe and it sounds like Blackmon probably won't be back in there until at least the middle of the week. David Dahl has started the last two games in center field, with Gerardo Parra getting the call in left. Sunday, 7:30 am
  • Valencia registers yet another multi-hit game
    Danny Valencia went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the White Sox on Saturday.

    Advice: The homer was Valencia's 15th of the year. The infielder now has multiple hits in each of his last six games, raising his overall line to .302/.351/.478 in 97 games. Saturday, 7:50 pm
    W, 3-2 @StL
  • Charlie Blackmon (toe) out again Saturday
    Charlie Blackmon (toe) is not in the Rockies' lineup Saturday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Blackmon missed Friday's game with a bruised toe and will get another day off on Saturday. Rookie David Dahl will draw the start in center field and bat leadoff against Cubs lefty Mike Montgomery. Blackmon is still considered day-to-day. Saturday, 4:11 pm
  • Slumping Reddick not in Saturday's lineup
    Josh Reddick is not in the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Reds.

    Advice: Manager Dave Roberts said Reddick has been pressing lately and he wanted to give him a day to recharge. The 29-year-old has hit just .164 since joining the Dodgers at the trade deadline. Rookie Rob Segedin will hold down the fort in right field while batting fifth against Reds lefty Brandon Finnegan. Saturday, 1:45 pm
    W, 3-2 vs ChC
  • Jason Heyward will sit out entire weekend
    Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Friday that he plans to rest Jason Heyward for the entire weekend series against the Rockies at Coors Field.

    Advice: The Cubs face two left-handers in the three game set, so it's a good opportunity for Maddon to sit down the struggling outfielder and let him clear his head. Heyward is hitting a disappointing .225/.304/.313 with five homers, 32 RBI and a 77/42 K/BB ratio over 458 plate appearances. Saturday, 6:07 am
  • Reddick singles, draws walk in loss
    Josh Reddick went 1-for-4 with a walk and a strikeout in Friday’s loss to the Reds.

    Advice: Reddick is now batting .164/.227/.180 with zero homers and zero RBI through his first 66 plate appearances with the Dodgers. He has one double and nine singles out of his 10 hits with his new club. It has been a rough start for the impending free agent, but we’re expecting better things down the stretch. The plan calls for him to get a scheduled day off on Saturday to clear his head. Friday, 8:53 pm
    W, 3-2 vs ChC
  • Charlie Blackmon scratched with toe injury
    Charlie Blackmon was a late scratch from Friday's game against the Cubs due to a bruised right big toe.

    Advice: It's unclear exactly how Blackmon sustained the injury, but it may have occurred during the lengthy rain delay before Friday's game. He's considered day-to-day. Friday, 7:29 pm
  • Rays designate Oswaldo Arcia for assignment
    Rays activated OF Oswaldo Arcia from the 15-day disabled list; designated him for assignment.

    Advice: The 25-year-old got off to a hot start after the Rays acquired him in a trade, but he wound up batting just .259/.328/.444 over 61 plate appearances. Arcia will get another shot somewhere, but the former top prospect has certainly been a bust after a promising start to his career. Friday, 12:34 pm
  • Tigers add Alex Presley from AAA Toledo
    Tigers purchased the contract of OF Alex Presley from Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: Presley will start in left field and bat ninth for Detroit on Thursday afternoon against the visiting Red Sox. He was batting .293/.378/.398 with zero home runs in 157 plate appearances at Toledo. Thursday, 7:17 am

  • Jorge Soler hits three-run homer
    Jorge Soler went 2-for-4 and hit a three-run homer against the Brewers on Wednesday.

    Advice: If not for Chris Coghlan's injury, Soler probably would have been on the bench for this one. However, he's been killing the ball since returning from the disabled list 12 days ago, and now that Coghlan is down, he's due more playing time against righties. It's time to pick him back up in mixed leagues. Wednesday, 8:27 pm
  • Ozuna cranks 21st homer on Wednesday
    Marcell Ozuna lifted a solo homer as part of a 1-for-4 evening on Wednesday against the Reds.

    Advice: The outfielder is having a nice bounce-back season after a dreary 2015 that saw him get demoted to Triple-A for a while. He is now batting .281/.337/.493 with 21 longballs, 62 RBI and 62 runs scored. He is on pace to set career highs in all of those stats. The Marlins were rumored to be dangling Ozuna in trade talks over the winter but they were smart to hang on to him. Wednesday, 8:02 pm
  • Harper vaporizes baseball on two-run homer
    Bryce Harper connected for a two-run home run that traveled an estimated 481 feet in Tuesday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: Harper absolutely unloaded on an offering from Chris Bergman in the fifth inning. The homer was his 22nd of the season, and his first since July 20. The reigning NL MVP boasts a .241/.383/.455 triple-slash over 369 at-bats. His overall numbers are down following a .330/.460/.649 campaign a season ago, but Harper remains an elite fantasy bat -- even if he doesn't necessarily show it all the time these days. Wednesday, 5:32 pm
