Player Notes

  • No timetable for Matt Carpenter to begin rehab
    Cardinals GM John Mozeliak said there's still no timetable for Matt Carpenter (oblique) to begin a rehab assignment.

    Advice: There was optimism Carpenter might begin a rehab assignment this week but it doesn't look like that's going to happen now. Carpenter has sat out the last three weeks with a strained oblique. The Cards could really use his bat in the lineup. The three-time All-Star leads the NL in on base percentage (.420) and is also second in OPS (.988). Rotoworld.com Today, 2:19 pm

  • Hernan Perez homers, steals two bases
    Hernan Perez went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: The D'Backs jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the top of the first, but Perez knotted things back up with a two-run blast in the third. He also added a pair of stolen bases, giving him 16 on the season. While he played shortstop Thursday, Perez has taken over as the Brewers' third baseman since the trade of Aaron Hill and has provided sneaky production this season. He's on pace for 10 homers and 26 stolen bases despite a relatively limited number of at-bats. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:15 pm
  • Dietrich starting at 1B on Thursday night
    Derek Dietrich is starting at first base for the Marlins on Thursday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Dee Gordon has returned from his 80-game PED suspension and is starting at second base and leading off. Dietrich has been pushed into a utility infield role. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:40 am
  • Marlins reinstate Dee Gordon from suspension
    Marlins reinstated 2B Dee Gordon from suspension.

    Advice: Gordon will return to the Marlins' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Cardinals after missing the last 80 games while serving out a performance-enhancing suspension. He didn't hit the ball very well on his minor league rehab assignment, but the 28-year-old second baseman is obviously capable of having a huge fantasy impact down the stretch this season. Derek Dietrich will be shifted into more of a utility role. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:00 am
  • 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.
