    Rangers optioned OF Leonys Martin to Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Martin has batted just .220/.265/.314 in 309 plate appearances this season for the Rangers, who will hope that a short demotion to the minors gets him going like it did for second baseman Rougned Odor. Delino DeShields Jr. has been serving as Texas' starting center fielder. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:45 pm

  • Jon Lester to make next start Friday vs. SF
    Jon Lester will make his next start Friday at home against the Giants.

    Advice: Lester only pitched 1 2/3 innings of Monday's postponed game against the Pirates, so he'll move up a day in the rotation. Kyle Hendricks will start Saturday. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:42 pm

    Mariners recalled RHP Mayckol Guaipe from Triple-A Tacoma.

  • Williams to have surgery on Friday
    Mason Williams will have right shoulder surgery on Friday.

    Advice: Williams jammed his shoulder in June and continues to have discomfort. The surgery will end his season. It's too bad, as the 23-year-old was having a nice bounceback year prior to the injury. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:53 pm
    60-Day DL
  • Cespedes batting second Tuesday vs. Marlins
    Yoenis Cespedes will bat second Tuesday against the Marlins.

  • C.J. Wilson to get second opinion on elbow
    C.J. Wilson is scheduled to meet with with Dr. Neal ElAttrache on August 11 for a second opinion on his elbow.

    Advice: Wilson has been pitching through bone spurs and is currently leaning toward season-ending surgery, but he won't make a final decision until he meets with ElAttrache. The Angels have approached him about potentially putting off surgery and pitching out of the bullpen down the stretch, but there's still a good chance that his season is over.

    15-Day DL
  • Barnes optioned to Triple-A
    Dodgers optioned C Austin Barnes to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

  • Cosart to see specialist this week
    Jarred Cosart (inner ear disorder) is scheduled to see a specialist this week in Chicago.

    Advice: Cosart landed on the disabled list in May due to vertigo and had a setback last month. The inner-ear disorder is on his right side and has impacted his "balance and gravity," but he's currently taking medication and has been throwing in recent days. More should be known this week, but he's hoping to be an option for the Marlins later this month or in September. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:24 am

    Advice: Kluber served up 10 hits, including a two-run home run to Conor Gillaspie. He also walked none while striking out four.

    Yan Gomes finished 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Gomes clubbed a two-run home run in the first inning to extend the Indians' lead to 3-0. The backstop has swung a better bat since the beginning of July, but still has a measly .227/.254/.369 batting line on the year along with six home runs and 20 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:12 pm

The right-hander moves to 11-8 on the year with a 3.46 ERA, a 1.18 WHIP, and a 102/44 K/BB ratio over 130 innings. Richards will take the hill at home against the Orioles in his next start.

  • Blackmon's 4-hit night wasted as Rockies lose
    Charlie Blackmon registered four hits, including two doubles, in six at-bats on Monday as the Rockies were felled by the Mariners.

    Advice: Blackmon doubled to lead off the bottom of the first and came around to score on a Jose Reyes single. He added an RBI double in the sixth inning. It's been another fine year for the outfielder, who's hitting .298/.366/.471 with 12 home runs, 44 RBI, 29 stolen bases, and 64 runs scored. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • Seager has a big night as Mariners edge Rocks
    Kyle Seager went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk, a solo home run, and three runs scored on Monday as the Mariners outlasted the Rockies.

    Advice: Seager hit the first of back-to-back home runs with Nelson Cruz. He also scored runs in the first and seventh innings. The third baseman had been in a slump, batting .133 (4-for-30) in his previous seven games. Seager's numbers on the season are solid, hitting .270/.329/.447 with 16 home runs and 44 RBI.

    Advice: Cruz went back-to-back with Kyle Seager in the second inning, extending the Mariners' lead to 6-1. It's his 30th homer of the year, marking only the third time he's crossed the 30-homer threshold in 11 big league seasons. (He's hit 29 twice, though.) Cruz has also knocked in 66 runs while hitting .321/.385/.590. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:16 pm
  • Boxberger averts trouble, gets his 27th save
    Brad Boxberger worked out of trouble to earn his 27th save as the Rays beat the White Sox 5-4 on Monday.

    Advice: Boxberger allowed a leadoff single to Alexei Ramirez, who promptly stole second base. Adam LaRoche then hit a single to center field, but Ramirez was thrown out. Avisail Garcia then struck out, and Carlos Sanchez lined out to end the game. Boxberger moves to 27-for-29 in save chances with a 56/21 K/BB ratio in 43 2/3 innings on the season.

  • Quintana solid in a no-decision vs. the Rays
    Jose Quintana held the Rays to two runs in six innings, but took a no-decision as the White Sox lost late on Monday.

    Advice: Quintana allowed an RBI double in the first inning and a sacrifice fly in the fifth, accounting for the damage. He scattered seven hits and a walk while striking out seven, but the White Sox wouldn't score until he was out of the game. Despite having only six wins, Quintana has a solid 3.50 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 123/29 K/BB ratio over 141 1/3 innings. He will face the tough Royals on the road in his next start.
