  • Jeremy Jeffress elects free agency
    Jeremy Jeffress elected free agency.

    Advice: Jeffress passed through waivers unclaimed after being designated for assignment earlier this month, but he has decided to look for an opportunity elsewhere rather than accept an assignment to Triple-A. The 26-year-old has struggled with his control, but someone will surely take a chance on his big arm.

  • Michael Brantley knocks in four
    Michael Brantley had a two-run homer and a two-run single Thursday versus the Tigers.

    Advice: Brantley isn't any sort of prototypical middle-of-the-order guy, but manager Terry Francona has used him exclusively in the fifth and sixth spots so far and he's been good for 14 RBI in 15 games, even though they guys ahead of him aren't really clicking yet. He should remain a nice mixed-league outfielder all season long.

  • Lonnie Chisenhall goes 4-for-4
    Lonnie Chisenhall singled all four times he was up Thursday against the Tigers.

    Advice: Unfortunately, he did so from the ninth spot in the lineup, so he never scored or drove in a run. Still, Chisenhall is now 12-for-23 this season. Hopefully, he's about to turn into a fixture against right-handed pitching.

  • Carlos Santana goes 0-for-4 in loss
    Carlos Santana went 0-for-4 with a walk and three strikeouts versus the Tigers on Thursday.

    Advice: Santana isn't hitting, but this is the first day strikeouts have been the problem; he had eight in 14 games coming in. The Indians might try dropping him in the lineup until he gets going, though that's not really Terry Francona's style. He'll surely starting hitting eventually.

  • Twins recall INF Nunez from Triple-A
    Twins recalled INF Eduardo Nunez from Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: Nunez, who was recently acquired from the Yankees, will function as the 26th man for Thursday's doubleheader and play third base in the nightcap. He'll be optioned back to Triple-A on Friday.
    Today, 1:37 pm
  • Fister (lat) throws two frames in ext. spring
    Doug Fister (lat) threw two innings Thursday in an extended spring training game.

    Advice: Fister threw a total of 28 pitches. He's expected to three innings next time out before going on a minor league rehab assignment. Barring any setbacks, the hope is that he'll join Washington's rotation in about 20 days.

  • David Robertson (groin) throws off mound
    David Robertson (groin) threw 25 pitches Thursday in a bullpen session.

    Advice: Robertson, who is on the disabled list with a Grade 1 groin strain, said he felt good after the session. He's slated to throw in a minor league game on Saturday and should be activated as soon as he's eligible on Tuesday if all goes well.

  • Revere pushes Phillies past Braves
    Ben Revere went 3-for-4 with a go-ahead RBI single in a 1-0 win over the Braves on Thursday.

    Advice: Revere was hitless over his last 12 at-bats coming into Thursday's action. His RBI single off Alex Wood in the bottom of the eighth inning was the only offense the Phillies would need. The 25-year-old speedster is hitting .288 (15-for-52) through 14 games and is 5-for-6 in stolen base attempts.

  • Anderson undergoes surgery on index finger
    Brett Anderson underwent successful surgery Thursday on his fractured left index finger.

    Advice: Anderson had four pins inserted into the broken finger to stabilize it and allow for proper healing. The left-hander has already been placed on the disabled list and is expected to be out for the next 4-6 weeks.

  • White Sox DFA left-hander Donnie Veal
    White Sox designated LHP Donnie Veal for assignment.

    Advice: Veal had allowed six hits, seven walks, and five earned runs in six innings this season for the White Sox. The 29-year-old left-hander will likely clear waivers.

  • Kipnis ejected from Thursday's game vs. DET
    Jason Kipnis was ejected from Thursday's game against the Tigers after a third-inning swinging strikeout.

    Advice: Kipnis was angry about a low-in-the-zone called strike earlier in the at-bat. He fanned with the bases loaded and also grounded into a doubleplay in the first inning. Mike Aviles came on to play second base. It was the first ejection of Kipnis' major league career.
    Today, 11:01 am
  • Eduardo Nunez to be 26th man on Thursday
    Eduardo Nunez will be the Twins' 26th man for the second half of Thursday's doubleheader vs. the Blue Jays.

    Advice: MLB's rulebook dictates that Nunez can't officially be added to the Twins' active roster until after the first game is over. Nunez was acquired from the Yankees on April 7 for minor league left-hander Miguel Slubaran. The 26-year-old infielder owns a weak .267/.313/.379 career batting line in the majors and is a poor defender.

  • Astros add veteran lefty Raul Valdes to 'pen
    Astros purchased the contract of LHP Raul Valdes from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Valdes was designated for assignment by Houston at the end of spring training, but he cleared waivers and will now have an opportunity to lock down a big-league bullpen job. The 36-year-old had fanned six batters over 3 2/3 innings this season at the Triple-A level.
    Today, 8:23 am
  • Brett Jackson (oblique) placed on AAA DL
    Brett Jackson has been placed on the disabled list at Triple-A Iowa with a right oblique strain.

    Advice: The recovery timetable for an oblique strain is usually 3-5 weeks. Jackson was batting just .121/.194/.273 through 36 plate appearances this season for Iowa. The 25-year-old former top prospect is quickly falling off the radar.

  • Everth Cabrera scores run in Padres' win
    Everth Cabrera (knee) went 1-for-4 with a run scored in the Padres' win over the Rockies on Wednesday.

    Advice: Cabrera was a late scratch from Tuesday's game with a sore right knee. It was never a major concern. The speedy shortstop is batting .333 with two stolen bases.
    Today, 5:44 am
  • KC's Lorenzo Cain diagnosed with groin strain
    Lorenzo Cain left Wednesday night's game against the Astros with a Grade 1 groin strain.

    Advice: That's the least severe type of strain, but Cain could still be looking at an extended absence. The 28-year-old outfielder was off to a decent start this season, boasting a .333 batting average and two steals in 12 games. Jarrod Dyson figures to get a boost in playing time and may be worth an add in fantasy leagues for his speed.
    Today, 5:38 am
  • Everth Cabrera returned to action on Wednesday April 16.

  • Gregerson blows save; 9th inning duties over?
    Luke Gregerson blew his second save of the season by coughing up a ninth inning run Wednesday in a loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Nursing a 4-3 lead, Gregerson was brought on to finish things out against the top of Los Angeles' lineup. He didn't have trouble with J.B. Shuck, but consecutive singles put Mike Trout on third and Albert Pujols on first. Howie Kendrick's fielder's choice tied the game before Gregerson was able to escape. Gregerson and Sean Doolittle, the committee appointed to replace Jim Johnson, have both blown saves in the past few days, and Johnson is pitching well again, so one wonders if Bob Melvin is going to get the $10 million man back into the ninth inning the next time Oakland has a save opportunity. It isn't like Gregerson has been bad or anything. He owns a 1.86 ERA and 0.83 WHIP and hadn't given up a run since April 2 prior to this evening.
    Yesterday, 11:43 pm
  • RP Romo earns fourth save, strikes out four
    Sergio Romo whiffed a pair while working a perfect ninth inning for his fourth save against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Romo coughed up a run while earning a rocky save on Opening Day against the Diamondbacks. Since then, he's fired six shutout innings and allowed only one hit and one walk. Romo is missing bats and refusing to give away bases again, the recipe that helped him leap into the group of the game's elite closers last year. He owns a 1.29 ERA, 0.57 WHIP, and 9/1 K/BB rate over seven innings.
    Yesterday, 10:41 pm
  • Gordon goes 3-for-4 with triple in loss to SF
    Dee Gordon went 3-for-4 with a triple and an RBI in Wednesday's 2-1 setback against the Giants.

    Advice: It already seems insane that Justin Turner started on Opening Day. The 25-year-old Gordon continues to whack the ball around, collecting multi-hit games in four of his last six. He's slashing .404/.453/.553 with 10 steals. That average is good for third in the National League, while he leads the league in swipes.
    Yesterday, 10:34 pm
  • Mike Moustakas homers in 11th
    Mike Moustakas homered in the top of the 11th in the Royals' 6-4 defeat of the Astros on Wednesday.

    Advice: The struggling Moustakas sat against a lefty and watched Danny Valencia homer in his place, but he got his chance after replacing Justin Maxwell and hit a solo shot to give the Royals the lead in extras. The Royals really should platoon Moustakas going forward, but manager Ned Yost has refused to consider it up to this point. The homer tonight was Moustakas' first, and it gave him just his second RBI in 42 at-bats.
    Yesterday, 10:16 pm
  • Cashner gives up one earned run in victory
    Andrew Cashner kept on rolling Wednesday against the Rockies, allowing two runs -- one earned -- on nine hits over 7 1/3 frames in a 4-2 win.

    Advice: The right-hander fanned five and walked one. As usual, he forced the Rockies to play his game, pounding 12 ground ball outs into the dirt. Cashner owners will have to come to a decision about the sell-high possibility at some point. On the one hand, he has ace potential and could very well keep pitching like one. On the other, San Diego is going to ask him to pitch like an ace, and one of the things that goes along with that is being worked heavily. Durability has been a concern in the past. We can tell you with confidence how to make certain fantasy decisions, but this one will come down to circumstance (do you have a buyer, and how much is he offering?) and taste (what is your level of belief in Cashner's right arm?). Cashner (2-1, 1.27 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, 27/8 K/BB rate) travels to Milwaukee next week.
    Yesterday, 10:14 pm
  • Lonnie Chisenhall goes 2-for-4, doubles
    Lonnie Chisenhall went 2-for-4 with a double and a steal against the Tigers on Wednesday.

    Advice: It was Chisenhall's first appearance since he was activated from paternity leave on Sunday. The Indians would be better off playing Chisenhall against all righties, and we expect that they'll get there eventually. He's off to a nice little 8-for-19 start in limited action.
    Yesterday, 8:18 pm
  • Doug Fister heads to extended spring training
    Doug Fister (lat) headed to extended spring training in Viera, Florida on Wednesday.

    Advice: Fister will begin working on a five-day throwing schedule, beginning with two simulated innings on Thursday. He'll then throw three simulated innings five days after, and a rehab assignment could follow that workout. Fister should join the Nationals around early May and will be a front-line fantasy starter once he is activated.

  • Robertson (groin) on track for Apr. 22 return
    David Robertson (groin) remains on track to return from the disabled list when first eligible on April 22.

    Advice: Robertson has been throwing on flat ground and will throw off a mound Thursday for the first time since landing on the DL. Shawn Kelley has been closing for the Yankees in Robertson's absence but will go back to a setup role next week.

  • Everth Cabrera scratched with sore knee
    Everth Cabrera was a late scratch from the Padres' lineup Tuesday due to a sore right knee.

    Advice: It's not clear how Cabrera hurt the knee or how long he might be sidelined. The Padres should provide an update on his status after the game. Alexi Amarista took Cabrera's spot at shortstop.
    Tuesday, 5:56 pm
  • Jays outright Jeffress to Triple-A
    Blue Jays sent RHP Jeremy Jeffress outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Jeffress was designated for assignment earlier this month, but passed through waivers unclaimed. He has 72 hours to decide whether to elect free agency or accept the minor league assignment.

  • Revere (rib) back in Phillies' lineup Tuesday
    Ben Revere (rib) is back in the Phillies' starting lineup Tuesday against the Braves.

    Advice: Revere has been limited to pinch-hitting duties since Friday due to a sore rib, but he's ready to go. It's safe to put him back in your fantasy lineup, but be sure to watch the weather forecast in Philadelphia.
    Tuesday, 11:46 am
  • Gregerson tosses perfect 9th, earns 2nd save
    Luke Gregerson earned the save for a second consecutive day by hurling a perfect ninth inning Monday against the Angels.

    Advice: Jim Johnson tossed a scoreless eighth inning when Oakland trailed 2-1, and Gregerson was given the save chance after John Jaso cranked a two-run homer off Ernest Frieri in the top of the ninth. That turn of events also gave Johnson his first 2014 victory (against two losses). Gregerson and the southpaw Sean Doolittle will continue to swap save chances until Bob Melvin regains confidence in Jim Johnson, who is up to three straight scoreless innings.
    Monday, 10:21 pm
  • Ben Revere (rib) still out Monday
    Ben Revere (rib) remained out of the Phillies' lineup Monday.

    Advice: Revere has missed four straight starts with an injured rib, though he has entered as a pinch-hitter in the last three contests. The Phillies are also content with keeping Tony Gwynn Jr.'s hot bat in the lineup. Gwynn is again in center field and leading off for the Phils. Revere remains day-to-day.
    Monday, 3:32 pm
  • Brett Anderson (finger) lands on DL
    Rockies placed LHP Brett Anderson on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 13, with a fractured left index finger.

    Advice: Anderson suffered the injury on Saturday during an at-bat. He will have surgery this week to insert some pins in the finger and is expected to be sidelined for 4-6 weeks. Franklin Morales will go back into the rotation in Anderson's place.

  • Fister (lat) throws another bullpen session
    Doug Fister (lat) threw 50 pitches Monday in another bullpen session.

    Advice: Fister said he felt good and called it "another step in the right direction." He appears to be closing in on a minor league rehab assignment, setting up a return in early May if all goes well.

  • Gordon steals four bases vs. Diamondbacks
    Dee Gordon went 1-for-3 with four stolen bases in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: He also walked twice and scored a run in the game. Gordon leads the National League with nine stolen bases, and Sunday he victimized Diamondbacks catcher Tuffy Gosewisch four times in the win. The second baseman is now batting .400/.457/.525 on the young season.
    Sunday, 6:07 pm
  • Brantley hits first homer in Sunday's loss
    Michael Brantley went 1-for-3 with a home run and two runs scored in a loss to the White Sox on Sunday.

    Advice: Brantley hit his first homer of the season off Jose Quintana in the fourth inning. He also scored the game-tying run off White Sox closer Matt Lindstrom in the ninth inning before the Tribe eventually lost in the bottom of the inning. He's followed up a scorching spring training with a good start to 2014, batting .292/.370/.417 through 13 games.
    Sunday, 5:45 pm
  • Anderson out 4-6 weeks with broken finger
    Brett Anderson will be sidelined for 4-6 weeks with a broken left index finger.

    Advice: It's a tough break for the oft-injured 26-year-old who posted a 3.60 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 5/2 K/BB ratio over 15 innings in his first three starts. Franklin Morales will replace him in the Rockies rotation.

  • Anderson (finger) could land on disabled list
    Brett Anderson (finger) could be placed on the disabled list.

    Advice: Anderson was initially diagnosed with a bruised left index finger after having to leave Saturday's game with the injury, but he's feeling worse Sunday than expected. The southpaw will undergo an X-ray Sunday and possibly an MRI Monday before the Rockies decide whether they need to make a roster move.

  • Ben Revere (rib) remains out of lineup Sunday
    Ben Revere (rib) remained out of the Phillies' lineup on Sunday.

    Advice: Revere has now missed all three starts for the weekend series against the Marlins after he injured a rib while making a diving catch Wednesday. There's been no indication to this point that it's more than a day-to-day injury. Tony Gwynn Jr. is getting another start in center field Sunday. Carlos Ruiz is also sitting out Sunday, with Wil Nieves filling in behind the plate.
    Sunday, 7:03 am
  • Chisenhall activated from paternity leave
    Indians activated 3B/DH Lonnie Chisenhall from the paternity leave list.

    Advice: Chisenhall was away for a few days in order to be with his wife, Meredith, as she gave birth to their second child. Justin Sellers has been sent down in a corresponding move.
    Sunday, 6:50 am
  • Luke Gregerson gets two outs for save
    After Sean Doolittle did the heavy-lifting, Luke Gregerson retired two of the four Mariners he faced to earn a save on Saturday.

    Advice: Doolittle pitched a perfect eighth and then retired Kyle Seager to start the ninth. However, after the Mariners decided to pinch-hit Willie Bloomquist for Logan Morrison, the A's countered with Gregerson. He went on to allow back-to-back singles but then struck out Michael Saunders and induced a groundout from John Buck to end it. It's pretty much a free-for-all for saves in the Oakland pen right now, but after Jim Johnson's impressive showing Friday, he might get another try in the ninth within a week or two.
    Saturday, 9:57 pm
  • Brett Anderson diagnosed with bruised finger
    Brett Anderson has been diagnosed with a contusion on his left index finger.

    Advice: Anderson suffered the injury Saturday during an at-bat and had to leave his start against the Giants after three scoreless innings. He is a left-hander, so it's possible that the contusion will force him to miss a turn in the Colorado starting rotation.

  • Brett Anderson exits game with hand injury
    Brett Anderson left his start Saturday against the Giants after injuring his hand during an at-bat.

    Advice: Anderson had allowed just one hit -- and no runs -- over three solid innings before injuring himself on an awkward swing that resulted in a groundout. He was replaced by Tommy Kahnle. The Rockies should provide a status update shortly on the oft-injured left-hander.

  • Cain has RBI double against Twins
    Lorenzo Cain had an RBI double Saturday against the Twins.

    Advice: It was the only offense the Royals could muster against Ricky Nolasco and Michael Tonkin. Cain has struggled to stay healthy during his career, but he's capable of doing enough in all categories to help fantasy owners.
    Saturday, 2:03 pm
  • Ben Revere remains out of lineup on Saturday
    Ben Revere is not in the Phillies starting lineup for the second consecutive day on Saturday.

    Advice: Tony Gwynn Jr. is once again starting in his spot and leading off for the Phillies. It remains unclear if there is an underlying injury, or if the two day rest has anything to do with Revere fanning three times in Thursday's game.
    Saturday, 11:41 am
  • Sergio Romo fans side for third save
    Sergio Romo struck out the side Friday for his third save against the Rockies.

    Advice: Romo suffered from stomach cramps Thursday due to an illness, but it didn't seem to hold him back tonight. He's allowed one run in four innings this season.
    Friday, 10:51 pm
  • Andrew Cashner throws one-hit shutout
    Andrew Cashner pitched a one-hitter for his second career shutout and struck out 11 against the Tigers on Friday.

    Advice: The Padres started Cashner on Opening Day and are treating him like their ace, letting him finish tonight's game even though anyone in the pen could have done the job with the score 6-0. Cashner finished up at 108 pitches, and that's hardly excessive. However, with the way he's pitching, he could finish the first half on 220-inning pace and, given his injury history, it will be interesting to see what happens then. From a talent standpoint, he's quite capable of keeping this up. However, he might be a good sell-high candidate come late May or June.
