  • Mike Moustakas sitting again Tuesday night
    Mike Moustakas is out of the starting lineup for the second straight day Tuesday.

    Advice: The thought was that he was just getting the day off on Monday, but it sounds like something could be up. The Royals should provide an update soon. Christian Colon is starting at third base versus Washington. Rotoworld.com 33 minutes ago
  • Robertson ends slump with epic four-hit game
    Rays SS prospect Daniel Robertson ended a three-game hitless streak by providing four hits Monday in a win for Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Robertson had been just six for his last 29 before Monday's explosion. The 22-year-old finished a home run shy of the cycle. He also scored twice while plating four runs. Robertson earned his promotion to Triple-A this year by hitting .274 across 299 at-bats for Double-A Montgomery in 2015. He homered 15 times in 2014 but has only logged five round-trippers since then. Rotoworld.com 37 minutes ago

  • Grichuk in Tuesday's lineup vs. Phillies
    Randal Grichuk is back in the Cardinals' lineup Tuesday against the Phillies.

    Advice: Grichuk didn't start Monday's game, but he came off the bench and went 2-for-2 with a homer. Hopefully that will get him going. He's still batting just .200/.278/.413 through 24 games this season. Rotoworld.com 43 minutes ago
  • Realmuto batting leadoff for Marlins on Tue.
    J.T. Realmuto will bat leadoff Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: It's an outside-the-box choice as the Marlins try to fill the void left by the suspended Dee Gordon. But Realmuto has some speed and is batting .312/.329/.455 through 20 games this season. It's worth a shot, especially with lefty Patrick Corbin on the mound. Rotoworld.com 49 minutes ago
  • Orioles place SS Hardy (foot) on 15-day DL
    Orioles placed SS J.J. Hardy on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 2, with a left foot fracture.

    Advice: Hardy suffered the injury when he fouled a ball off his foot in the fourth inning of Sunday's game. He's expected to miss around 6-8 weeks. Manny Machado is an option to fill in at shortstop during Hardy's absence, though Ryan Flaherty is getting the first start there Tuesday. Chris Davis and Pedro Alvarez could see time at third base if Machado makes the move to shortstop. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:12 pm

  • Jason Heyward (wrist) out again Tuesday
    Jason Heyward (wrist) is out of the starting lineup again on Tuesday against the Pirates.

    Advice: The struggling Heyward is dealing with a sore right wrist, but hopes to return as soon as Wednesday. Kris Bryant will play right field Tuesday while Jorge Soler will start in left and bat second. Javier Baez will play third base. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:41 am

  • Hunter Dozier belts his seventh homer Monday
    Royals 3B prospect Hunter Dozier homered and drove in two runs Monday in a win for Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

    Advice: The 24-year-old has hit .400 with three home runs during his five-game hitting streak, raising his average from .288 to .316. Dozier leads the Texas League in slugging percentage (.684) and is second in OPS (1.103). He's also second in homers (seven), third in doubles (eight) and third in RBI (18). The former first-round pick has been a threat on the base paths as well, stealing four bags without getting caught. Dozier could be nearing a promotion to Triple-A Omaha.

  • Seager not in Tuesday's lineup

    Advice: He's sitting against southpaw Matt Moore. Charlie Culberson will start at shortstop and bat ninth. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:19 am
  • Rangers designate Gimenez for assignment
    Rangers designated C Chris Gimenez for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot for the newly-acquired Bobby Wilson on the 40-man roster. Gimenez was recently sent on a minor league rehab assignment after he began the season on the disabled list with an infection in his ankle. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:10 am

  • Rangers acquire C Wilson from Tigers
    Rangers acquired C Bobby Wilson from the Tigers for LHP Chad Bell.

    Advice: The Rangers already acquired Bryan Holaday from the Tigers back in March and now they have added another catcher to the mix as they try to get by without Robinson Chirinos. The 33-year-old Wilson is a .203/.266/.299 hitter in the majors and can be ignored in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:03 am
  • Sandoval had shoulder surgery Tuesday morning
    Red Sox manager John Farrell said on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM that Pablo Sandoval's left shoulder was scheduled for Tuesday morning.

    Advice: The Red Sox haven't released any specifics, but Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports hears that the procedure included a repair of a labrum tear and cleanup of his rotator cuff. The expectation is that he'll the entire 2016 season. Sandoval is still owed $53 million from 2017-2019 with $17 million club option or a $5 million buyout for 2020. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:15 am

  • Pablo Sandoval needs shoulder reconstruction
    Pablo Sandoval needs reconstructive surgery on his left shoulder, per ESPN's Buster Olney.

    Advice: Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reported Monday night that the surgery is "significant" and the odds are against Sandoval playing this season, so Olney's report appears to jibe with that. The 29-year-old has received all sorts of criticism for his level of fitness, but his situation is much more complicated. The big question is what sort of future Sandoval has in Boston. He still has three guaranteed years (and $58 million) on his contract. The Red Sox will have the DH spot open after David Ortiz retires, so that could be where Sandoval slots in if healthy in 2017. A change of scenery might be the best for all involved, but the Red Sox would have to pick up most of his remaining contract for anyone to take a chance on him. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:52 am

  • Valencia (hamstring) begins rehab assignment
    Danny Valencia (hamstring) went 0-for-3 on Monday in his first minor league rehab game with High-A Stockton.

    Advice: Valencia, out since April 20 with a left hamstring strain, also played seven innings at third base. He's expected to be activated when he's first eligible on Friday. Valencia was batting .294/.345/.353 over 14 games prior to the injury. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:29 am

  • Derek Norris goes 0-for-3 against Rockies
    Derek Norris finished 0-for-3 with two strikeouts against the Rockies on Monday.

    Advice: Norris is hitting .145 with 25 strikeouts and just four walks through 83 at-bats. He should rebound and serve as a decent option in two-catcher mixed leagues, but it's been ugly so far. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:18 pm
  • Twins option INF Polanco to Triple-A
    Twins optioned INF Jorge Polanco to Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: The move clears the way for Trevor Plouffe's return from the disabled list. Polanco has already had two stints with the Twins this season and should be back again at some point this summer. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:21 pm

  • Twins activate Trevor Plouffe from 15-day DL
    Twins activated 3B Trevor Plouffe from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Plouffe, out since April 17 with a right intercostal strain, was cleared to return after playing a pair of minor league rehab games. Eduardo Nunez has swung the bat well while filling in at third base, but he's now likely headed back to a bench role. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:19 pm
  • Plouffe (intercostal) to be activated Tuesday
    Trevor Plouffe (intercostal) is set to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.

    Advice: Plouffe, who went down with a right intercostal strain in mid-April, went 1-for-8 over two minor league rehab games with High-A Fort Myers. He was batting .302 (13-for-43) with two homers and an .868 OPS over 12 games prior to the injury. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:26 pm
  • Sandoval faces 'significant' shoulder surgery
    Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe hears from a source that Pablo Sandoval faces "significant" surgery on his left shoulder.

    Advice: The Red Sox have yet to announce the details of the surgery, but Abraham hears that the "odds are against" Sandoval playing this season. The Red Sox haven't missed him in the early part of the season, as Travis Shaw has taken advantage of regular playing time at third base by batting .322/.390/.533 over 25 games. For what it's worth, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal hears that Sandoval's contract with the Red Sox is not insured. The first two years of his contract have been a disaster.

  • Pablo Sandoval to undergo shoulder surgery
    Pablo Sandoval will require surgery on his ailing left shoulder.

    Advice: Sandoval got the bad news Monday during a follow-up exam with Dr. James Andrews. The extent of the damage isn't yet known, but Travis Shaw is now locked in as the regular third baseman. Sandoval is still owed $53 million from 2017-2019 with $17 million club option or a $5 million buyout for 2020. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:38 pm

  • Jason Heyward dealing with a sore right wrist
    Cubs manager Joe Maddon said that Jason Heyward is out of Monday's lineup with a sore right wrist.

    Advice: There's no indication that it's serious, but it provides more context on his struggles. The high-priced outfielder went 0-for-17 on the team's recent homestand and is batting just .211/.317/.256 overall. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:28 pm

  • Mike Moustakas not in Monday's lineup
    Mike Moustakas is not in Monday's lineup against the Nationals.

    Advice: He's just getting the day off. Christian Colon will cover third base and bat eighth versus left-hander Gio Gonzalez. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:58 pm
  • Grichuk slumping again, gets night off Mon.
    Randal Grichuk is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup on Monday night against the Phillies.

    Advice: Grichuk was able to emerge from his brutal early-season slump, but he's back to flailing again so the Cardinals will give him a night of mental and physical rest. Stephen Piscotty is in center field, Brandon Moss is in right, and Matt Adams is at first base versus Phillies right-hander Jeremy Hellickson. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:18 pm
  • Jason Heyward not in Cubs' lineup Monday
    Jason Heyward is not in the Cubs' starting lineup Monday night against the Pirates.

    Advice: It's just a day of rest for the $184 million right fielder, who went 0-for-5 on Sunday and is batting .211/.317/.256 over his first 104 plate appearances with the Cubs. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:05 pm

  • Hardy has a left foot fracture, out 6-8 weeks
    J.J. Hardy has been diagnosed with a small fracture in his left foot and will be placed on the disabled list.

    Advice: Hardy fouled a ball off the foot in the fourth inning Sunday and a CT scan taken Monday morning revealed a broken bone. MASN's Roch Kubatko says the Orioles are expecting this to be an absence of 6-8 weeks. Manny Machado moved from third base to shortstop Sunday and Pedro Alvarez took over at the hot corner. Ryan Flaherty and Paul Janish will likely factor into the mix at those positions over the next couple of months. Chris Davis can play a little third base too. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:18 am

  • J.J. Hardy to undergo further tests on Monday
    J.J. Hardy is scheduled to undergo a CT scan on his injured foot on Monday.

    Advice: Hardy left Sunday's game after fouling a ball off of his left foot. O's skipper Buck Showalter indicated that the X-ray showed things, but wasn't specific about the severity of the injury. The club should have an update on his status after Monday's exam, but a trip to the disabled list wouldn't be surprising. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:05 pm

  • J.J. Hardy exits after fouling ball off foot
    J.J. Hardy departed Sunday's game against the White Sox after fouling a ball off his left foot.

    Advice: It's unclear whether Hardy will undergo an X-ray or whether his exit was purely precautionary. The Orioles should have an update on their shortstop's status later Sunday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:30 pm

  • Danny Valencia (hamstring) expected back Fri.
    Danny Valencia (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Friday, the first day he's eligible.

    Advice: Valencia will begin a three-game rehab assignment with High-A Stockton on Monday, playing third base twice and serving as a designated hitter once. Assuming all goes well, he'll be back with the A's next weekend in Baltimore. Valencia was off to a .294/.345/.353 start in his first 14 games before straining his hamstring.

  • Moustakas doubles in loss to the Mariners
    Mike Moustakas went 2-for-4 with his sixth double of the year in Saturday's defeat to the Mariners.

    Advice: Moustakas used to never be a viable starting option against a left-handed pitcher like Wade Miley, but he's really come into his own as a player. He's now hitting .375 with a pair of doubles and a homer against southpaws this year and was the only offensive threat against Miley all night. Overall, the 27-year-old has a .273/.333/.580 slash line with seven homers and 11 RBI in 22 games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:33 pm
  • Danny Valencia continues baseball activities
    Danny Valencia (hamstring) ran sprints on Thursday and has continued to hit off of a tee and pitching machine.

    Advice: Valencia is sidelined with a strained left hamstring, but it's looking as though he may only need a minimum stint on the disabled list. Before he was sidelined, Valencia was hitting .294/.345/.353 with two RBI in 14 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:27 pm

  • Grichuk not in Thursday's lineup
    Randal Grichuk is not in Thursday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: He'll sit against right-hander Rubby De La Rosa. Stephen Piscotty will make his second career start in center field while Brandon Moss plays right. It's unclear what this means as far as Jeremy Hazelbaker's availability. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:54 pm
  • Plouffe (intercostal) set for rehab assign.
    Trevor Plouffe (intercostal) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Fort Myers this weekend.

    Advice: Plouffe was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right intercostal strain in mid-April. He has faced no setbacks in his recovery, though, and will be eligible to be activated from the DL on Tuesday. The Twins open next week with a series against the Astros. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:05 pm
  • Sandoval: Shoulder inflammation fading
    Pablo Sandoval indicated that the inflammation in his balky left shoulder has subsided.

    Advice: "[The shoulder's] still sore," Sandoval said, "but we'll see what's going on. The inflammation at least went down; it's to a good point, so now we're going to see what's going on there." He was placed on the 15-day disabled list in mid-April and will see Dr. James Andrews on Monday in an attempt to reevaluate the progress of his recovery. Travis Shaw will continue to hold down the hot corner for the Sox. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:59 pm

  • Red Sox happy with Sandoval's rehab so far
    According to WEEI's Rob Bradford, the Red Sox have been encouraged by Pablo Sandoval's "approach and results" toward dropping weight over the last two weeks.

    Advice: Sandoval landed on the disabled list after the first week of the regular season with a left shoulder sprain and there was a report from Yahoo Sports stating that the Red Sox have "no intention of playing him unless he loses weight" before returning to the active roster. Bradford hasn't heard anything like that from Red Sox officials, but there probably is a number (as in, pounds) that the club would like Sandoval to reach while he rehabs his shoulder injury. He's scheduled to visit Dr. James Andrews for a followup shoulder exam on Monday. A return to baseball activities could follow. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:21 am

  • Moustakas clubs solo homer in loss to Angels
    Mike Moustakas went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Moustakas opened the game promisingly enough, burning Angels starter Jered Weaver for a solo home run in the first inning. It would be his only hit on the evening, though, and an ineffective Edinson Volquez would ensure that the four runs scored by the Royals in the contest would fall in vain. Moustakas is hitting a shiny .267/.337/.613 with five doubles, seven homers and 11 RBI over his first 75 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:10 pm
  • Twins recall Jorge Polanco from AAA level
    Twins recalled INF Jorge Polanco from Triple-A Rochester.

    Danny Valencia (hamstring) hit off a tee Monday.

    Advice: It's a nice step in the right direction for the Oakland third baseman, who landed on the disabled list April 21 with a strained left hamstring. He should be ready to rejoin the A's sometime in early May. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:20 pm

  • Jorge Polanco recalled from Rochester
    Twins recalled INF Jorge Polanco from Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: Polanco has done a lot of traveling lately. In the last week, he's been promoted to Minnesota, sent down to Rochester and called back up again. The additions of Polanco and top prospect Jose Berrios suggest Ervin Santana (back) is headed to the disabled list. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:25 am

  • Plouffe (intercostal) hopeful of quick return
    Trevor Plouffe (intercostal) is optimistic about returning when he's eligible on May 3.

    Advice: Plouffe was placed on the disabled list last week with a right intercostal strain, but he could begin a minor league rehab assignment as soon as this weekend. Eduardo Nunez will continue to fill in at third base. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:58 pm
  • Corey Seager not in Monday's lineup
    Corey Seager is not in Monday's lineup against the Marlins.

  • Gimenez (ankle) to begin rehab stint Monday
    Chris Gimenez (ankle) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Monday with Double-A Frisco.

    Advice: Gimenez was forced to begin the season on the disabled list due to an infection in his ankle, but he's feeling better now and could be ready to join the Rangers within a few days. Bryan Holaday and Brett Nicholas are currently sharing catching duties with Robinson Chirinos (forearm) sidelined. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:55 pm

  • Corey Seager plates three to lead Dodgers
    Corey Seager went 2-for-5 and drove home three runs, leading the Dodgers to a come-from-behind 12-10 victory over the Rockies at Coors Field on Sunday.

    Advice: Seager tripled home a pair of runs in the third inning that increased the Dodgers advantage to 7-1. He later added an RBI double as part of a five-run uprising in the ninth inning that gave the Dodgers the victory. Seager is now slashing .257/.317/.432 with 12 RBI on the young season.

  • Grichuk drives in three as Cards top Padres
    Randal Grichuk went 3-for-5 with three RBI in the Cardinals' 8-5 defeat of the Padres on Sunday.

    Advice: Grichuk opened the game's scoring with an RBI single off Padres starter Colin Rea in the top of the first inning and then cranked a two-run double off Padres reliever Brandon Maurer in the top of the eighth. Grichuk got off to a dreadful start this season, but his numbers have been on a steady rise over the last 10 days. The young center fielder made for a smart buy-low when he was scuffling along in early April. Rotoworld.com Apr 24, 5:22 pm
  • Derek Norris sitting out on Sunday
    Derek Norris is not in the Padres' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's just getting some rest. Christian Bethancourt will catch. Rotoworld.com Apr 24, 10:47 am
  • Twins option Polanco to make room for Duffey
    Twins optioned INF Jorge Polanco to Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: The Twins needed to make room for Tyler Duffey, who is slated to start in place of Ervin Santana (back) on Sunday. Polanco doubled and drove in a run during his four-game stint with Minnesota. Rotoworld.com Apr 23, 2:11 pm

  • Seager homers, enjoys big night at the office
    Corey Seager went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two walks in Friday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: Seager took advantage of the thin air in Denver, launching his second homer of the year. It's been a slow start to the year, but this will hopefully help catapult him into a huge month of May. He's only hitting .246/.296/.400 with two homers and nine RBI. The Dodgers aren't about to give up on him, though, so fantasy owners won't have to worry about him working through standard growing pains. Rotoworld.com Apr 22, 10:05 pm
  • Moustakas homers once, doubles twice in win
    Mike Moustakas went 3-for-4 with two doubles and a two-run homer, driving in three runs in Friday's win over the Orioles.

    Advice: It's five or six years after it was supposed to have happened, but Moustakas has asserted himself as a quality big-league third baseman at the plate. He's now hitting .290/.343/.661 with six homers, and his strikeout rate (10.4 percent) has dropped for the third-consecutive season. All in all, the 27-year-old has shown that his breakout performance a year ago wasn't all smoke and mirrors and, now, maybe the prodigious is finally arriving. Rotoworld.com Apr 22, 9:22 pm
