  • Hanigan (side) not in Rays lineup on Saturday
    Ryan Hanigan (side) is not in the Rays lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: He was scratched from Friday's lineup due to soreness in his left side. Manager Joe Maddon admitted that the team isn't sure if it is an oblique issue or not, and that he's only available in an emergency on Saturday.

  • Brett Anderson to rejoin Rockies on Sunday
    Brett Anderson (finger) is expected to rejoin the Rockies starting rotation on Sunday against the Twins.

    Advice: Anderson looked strong through his two minor league rehab starts, so the Rockies are comfortable bringing the southpaw back into the fold a little earlier than his projected timetable. Through his first three starts, he posted a 3.60 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 5/5 K/BB ratio over 15 innings.

  • Orioles option Miguel Gonzalez to Triple-A
    Orioles optioned RHP Miguel Gonzalez to Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: Gonzalez had an option remaining, and will make a start in the minor leagues over the All-Star break so that he doesn't have an extra-long layoff. Through the season's first half he sports a 4.04 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 69/32 K/BB ratio over 89 innings.

    Yankees optioned RHP Matt Daley to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: Daley was sent out to make room for Jeff Francis who arrived on Saturday. Over 12 appearances with the Bombers this season, he owns a 4.85 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 9/6 K/BB ratio over 13 innings.

  • Springer returns to Astros lineup on Saturday
    George Springer has returned to the Astros starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Red Sox.

    Advice: The dynamic young outfielder was a late scratch from Friday's contest due to discomfort in his right knee. While it sounds like a nagging issue that could remain a problem off and on all season, he felt good enough to give it a go on Saturday. Through 74 games, he's hitting .238/.342/.475 with 19 homers, 50 RBI, five stolen bases and a league-leading 109 strikeouts.

  • Matt Lindstrom throws successful 'pen session
    Matt Lindstrom (ankle) threw 30 pitches in a successful bullpen session on Saturday.

    Advice: The veteran right-hander is finally making progress in his recovery since undergoing ankle surgery in May. He will throw another bullpen session over the All-Star break, and if all continues to go well, he could be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment at some point in the next two weeks.

  • Angels RHP prospect Bedrosian has 3Ks in 1 IP
    Angels right-handed pitching prospect Cam Bedrosian struck out all three batters he faced for Double-A Arkansas on Friday.

    Advice: After a brief but solid second stint with the Angels, Bedrosian returned to the Texas League to strike out all three batters he faced in one inning, two swinging and one looking, on just 16 pitches, 11 of which were strikes. Bedrosian has the stuff and the bloodlines to be a closer (his father, Steve, has 184 saves for his career), and should be back up in the majors before the end of the season.

  • Pirates RHP prospect Glasnow fans 10
    Pirates right-handed pitching prospect Tyler Glasnow struck out 10 batters over 5 2/3 shutout innings while allowing seven hits and one walk for High-A Bradenton on Friday.

    Advice: Glasnow's ability to rack up strikeouts was on full display, but he allowed seven hits for the second consecutive start. The Pirates front office would like to see Glasnow throw more strikes and go deeper into games, though they should be happy with his holding opposing batters to a .175/.284/.242 while striking out 28.8 percent of the batters he has faced for the season.

  • Jesse Hahn beats Dodgers, goes to 5-2
    Jesse Hahn moved to 5-2 after limiting the Dodgers to one run and three hits in six innings Friday.

    Advice: Hahn struck out six and walked four in his latest gem. Since returning to the majors on June 14, he's won five of his six starts, allowing just six earned runs over 37 innings. However, while Hahn figures to remain an asset in mixed leagues in the coming weeks, he's a prime candidate to be shut down for the season in early or mid-September. Prepare accordingly.

  • Dan Haren gives up four runs to Padres
    Dan Haren gave up four runs in four-plus innings Friday in a loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Alexi Amarista, of all people, homered off Haren in the second, and Haren gave up a single and two RBI doubles before being pulled in the fifth. Fortunately for him, the lone runner he left on base was stranded. Haren has turned in just two quality starts in his last seven tries. The Dodgers have been getting him run support, so he's 8-6 despite his rough stretch. However, he's simply not a very good pitcher right now.
    Yesterday, 10:49 pm
  • Carlos Quentin knocks in three runs
    Carlos Quentin doubled, singled and drove in three runs Friday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Quentin raised his average to .175 with the performance! He's still just 10-for-75 (.133) since the beginning of July, but if he can stay healthy for a while, he should begin to pick it up.
    Yesterday, 10:46 pm
  • Tim Lincecum combines on shutout of D'backs
    Tim Lincecum allowed three hits over seven innings and combined with two relievers on a shutout of the Diamondbacks on Friday.

    Advice: Lincecum entered this one having allowed 15 earned runs in 16 innings against the Diamondbacks this year, so this rates as quite a turnaround. Then again... it's still just the Diamondbacks. Lincecum has allowed one run over 30 1/3 innings in his last four starts, but those have all come against struggling offenses (two against San Diego, one against St. Louis). That said, he's finished up the first half at 9-5 with a 3.66 ERA, numbers the Giants are most certainly happy with. We wouldn't expect him to keep it up after the break.
    Yesterday, 10:09 pm
  • Pablo Sandoval goes 3-for-4, homers
    Pablo Sandoval went 3-for-4 with a homer, a double and three RBI against the Diamondbacks on Friday.

    Advice: Sandoval has slowed down in the power department after his May outburst (he hit six homers in an 11-game span), but even so, he has 11 homers on the season, leaving him just three shy of his 2013 total. He has a realistic chance of reaching 20 homers for the first time since 2011 and third time in his career.
    Yesterday, 10:05 pm
  • De La Rosa gives up one run in victory
    Jorge De La Rosa tossed six innings of one-run ball in a 6-2 win over the Twins on Friday.

    Advice: The only run scored on an RBI groundout from Eduardo Nunez in the second inning. De La Rosa allowed six hits and one walk while striking out three batters. He now stands at 10-6 with a 4.56 ERA and 73/43 K/BB ratio in 102 2/3 innings across 19 starts this season. An impending free agent, he figures to be a popular trade target leading up to July 31.
    Yesterday, 10:01 pm
  • Jeff Samardzija goes distance in loss
    Jeff Samardzija took a complete-game loss after giving up three runs in eight innings Friday against the Mariners.

    Advice: It was Samardzija's fourth career complete game and first of 2014. He allowed five hits, walked none and struck out five.
    Yesterday, 9:59 pm
  • Stubbs hits two-run homer vs. Twins
    Drew Stubbs launched a two-run homer Friday against the Twins.

    Advice: It was his 10th home run of the season. Four of them have come in his last six games. His playing time is going to take a hit now that Carlos Gonzalez is back from the disabled list, but he still figures to get regular at-bats against left-handed starters at the very least.
    Yesterday, 9:59 pm
  • Holliday sends Brewers to sixth straight loss
    Matt Holliday hit a go-ahead solo homer in the ninth inning to lead the Cardinals to a 7-6 victory over the Brewers on Friday.

    Advice: It finished off a huge night for Holliday, who reached base in four out of his five plate appearances. He also had a single, two doubles, and a walk. The home run was his first since June 16 and just his sixth on the season. The 34-year-old is currently on pace to hit fewer than 20 home runs for the first time since 2005.
    Yesterday, 9:36 pm
  • Carter hits two solo homers vs. Red Sox
    Chris Carter hit a pair of solo homers in Friday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Carter has two two-homer games over the past four days and has gone deep six times over his last six games. He's now tied for eighth in the AL with 19 homers, though he's done it with a .203 batting average and a .280 on-base percentage. In other words, he's pretty much doing what was expected of him.
    Yesterday, 9:05 pm
  • Castro (arm) returns to action for Astros
    Jason Castro (arm) went 1-for-5 with a double and a strikeout in his return to action Friday.

    Advice: Castro hasn't played since Sunday due to pain in the area of his left armpit. While there was some speculation that a swollen lymph node could be the cause, he has seen improvement after receiving treatment.
    Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Nolan Reimold (calf) to get MRI on Saturday
    Nolan Reimold will undergo an MRI exam on Saturday to determine the severity of his calf injury.

    Advice: It's after the Blue Jays get the results that they'll decide whether or not they need to make a roster move prior to Saturday's game. Jose Bautista is likely to get the start in right field on Saturday.

  • Miguel Gonzalez strong in no-decision Friday
    Miguel Gonzalez delivered a strong performance in Friday's no-decision against the Yankees, surrendering just two runs on six hits over eight frames.

    Advice: Gonzalez racked up five strikeouts on the night without issuing a walk. The only damage against him came on a pair of solo home runs off the bats of Brian Roberts and Kelly Johnson. He finishes the first half of the season with a 4-5 record, 4.04 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 69/32 K/BB ratio over 89 innings. While he's capable of turning in strong starts on occasion, he's best served as a matchup play only in mixed leagues.

  • Nolan Reimold day-to-day with strained calf
    Nolan Reimold is considered day-to-day after leaving Friday's game with a strained left calf.

    Advice: Reimold appeared to tweak something while running the bases in the fourth inning, advancing twice on fly balls to the outfield. He appears to have avoided any type of significant injury though, and should return to the Blue Jays lineup at some point over the weekend.

  • Nolan Reimold leaves game with knee injury
    Nolan Reimold was forced to leave Friday's game against the Rays with an apparent knee injury.

    Advice: Reimold showed off his wheels, tagging up and hustling to second base on a Colby Rasmus fly out to right field, but after advancing on another fly ball from Juan Francisco, he was down for the count and holding his knee at third base. The team should provide an update on his status shortly, but a trip to the disabled list is very likely.

  • Springer scratched with right knee discomfort
    George Springer was scratched from the Astros starting lineup on Friday due to discomfort in his right knee.

    Advice: Springer is being called day-to-day for the time being, but it wouldn't be terribly shocking to see the Astros play it safe and rest him the remainder of the weekend heading into the All-Star break.
    Yesterday, 5:01 pm
  • George Springer scratched from Astros lineup
    George Springer was scratched from the Astros starting lineup on Friday.

    Advice: No word given yet as to the reason for the late scratch. Robbie Grossman will start in his place in center field and hit sixth for the Astros.
    Yesterday, 4:04 pm
  • Ryan Hanigan scratched with sore side
    Ryan Hanigan was scratched from Friday's lineup with soreness in his left side.

    Advice: Hanigan hasn't played since Tuesday, so it's possible he's been nursing the ailment for a few days. Jose Molina will catch Chris Archer instead.
    Yesterday, 2:55 pm
  • Matt Lindstrom to throw bullpen session
    Matt Lindstrom (ankle) will throw a 25-35 pitch bullpen session Saturday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's thrown from the bump since May ankle surgery. The White Sox are hoping Lindstrom will be ready to rejoin their bullpen by late August.

  • Jason Castro back in Astros' lineup Friday
    Jason Castro is back in the Astros' lineup Friday.

    Advice: It's his first start since Sunday, as Castro has been battling pain in his left armpit. The Astros catching is sporting a .228/.303/.366 batting line with seven homers and 34 RBI over 73 games this season.

  • Matt Daley recalled from Triple-A

  • Angels option Bedrosian back to Double-A
    Angels optioned RHP Cam Bedrosian to Double-A Arkansas.

    Advice: Bedrosian just returned to the Angels on Tuesday and made two scoreless appearances during his brief time with the club. The 22-year-old figures to get another shot before long.

  • Rox want 'a young impact SP' for De La Rosa
    ESPN's Jayson Stark hears that the Rockies want a "young impact starter" in return for Jorge De La Rosa.

    Advice: Stark adds that the Rockies are "very unlikely" to find such a return given that De La Rosa owns a rough 4.75 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in 18 starts this season and is set to become a free agent this winter. Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reported Tuesday that the Orioles are "monitoring" the 33-year-old left-hander, but it doesn't sound like the two teams are going to be able to find a common ground for a trade. The O's would be taking a step backward if they moved one of their young pitching prospects for a mediocre rental.
    Thursday, 10:04 am
  • O's said to be monitoring Jorge De La Rosa
    A source tells Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun that the Orioles are "monitoring" Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa.

    Advice: The O's are in the market for a starting pitcher and the Rockies have been identified as one of the teams that will likely be sellers at the deadline, so the rumor makes some sense. Connolly notes that De La Rosa was once purchased by the Red Sox when current Orioles general manager Dan Duquette was the team's GM. The southpaw has a 4.75 ERA and 1.31 WHIP over 18 starts this season, and he'll be a free agent this winter.

  • Reimold collects three RBI against Angels
    Nolan Reimold went 2-for-4 with three RBI in a loss to the Angels on Wednesday.

    Advice: Reimold doubled twice in Tuesday's win, and his third double in a Jays uniform plated two. The 30-year-old also drew a bases-loaded walk to drive in a run. He was added to take some of the sting out of losing Edwin Encarnacion, and he continues to get regular at-bats he should be a nice AL-only option while Encarnacion is down.

  • Castro (shoulder) out of Astros' lineup again
    Jason Castro (arm) is out of the Astros' starting lineup again on Wednesday versus the Rangers.

    Advice: Castro has now missed three straight games with pain in his left armpit. The Astros still aren't exactly sure what's bothering him. He's been prescribed pain meds.
    Wednesday, 1:43 pm
  • Brett Anderson could start for Rockies Sat.
    Brett Anderson (finger) could rejoin the Rockies' rotation as soon as Saturday.

    Advice: Anderson had been slated for three rehab starts, but the Rockies are considering bringing him back after two following a successful second outing. They'll make a decision on Wednesday. "Brett is going to be back here (Wednesday), and then we'll make plans from there," manager Walt Weiss said. "Make sure he checks out all right. So far, so good."

  • Sandoval (elbow) goes 1-for-4 in return
    In his return to the lineup, Pablo Sandoval went 1-for-4 as the Giants dropped a 6-1 decision to the A's on Tuesday.

    Advice: Sandoval missed the last two games after being hit on the left elbow by a pitch Saturday. Kung Fu Panda hit .190 in his past 12 games prior to the injury. He is batting .261/.314/.414 with 10 homers and 36 RBI over 344 plate appearances.
    Tuesday, 10:17 pm
  • Carter launches two home runs to sink Rangers
    Chris Carter hit two home runs as the Astros bested the Rangers 8-3 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Carter connected off of Neftali Feliz in the sixth inning before taking Aaron Poreda deep in the eighth. The homers give him four jacks in his last four games, and he's 7-for-20 with six runs scored and seven RBI in his last five. The blasts give him 17 home runs overall. It's about all he does well -- he's batting just .194/.274/.446 for the year -- but in AL-only leagues where pop is hard to come by, Carter is a decent source of power, if nothing else.
    Tuesday, 10:04 pm
  • Springer homers, scores twice against Rangers
    George Springer homered, had two RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Springer hit a solo home run, his 18th homer of the year, off Rangers starter Phil Irwin in the third inning. Despite not making his season debut until April 16 and not hitting his first home run until May 8, Springer is now 10th in the American League in dingers. His star should continue to rise in the season's second half.
    Tuesday, 9:52 pm
  • Pablo Sandoval returns to Giants' lineup
    Pablo Sandoval is back in the Giants' lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Sandoval missed the last two games after being hit on the left elbow by a pitch Saturday. Kung Fu Panda is batting .261/.315/.416 with 10 homers and 36 RBI over 340 plate appearances for San Francisco this season.
    Tuesday, 3:37 pm
  • Cam Bedrosian recalled from Double-A
    Angels recalled RHP Cam Bedrosian from Double-A Arkansas.

    Advice: Bedrosian allowed nine earned runs in 5 2/3 innings during his nearly three-week stay with the big-league club last month, but he has loads of potential. He's likely to be used in low-leverage situations, though.

  • Jason Castro (arm) could pinch-hit Tuesday
    Jason Castro (arm) could pinch-hit on Tuesday.

    Advice: Castro was held out Monday and is not in Tuesday's starting lineup due to pain in his left armpit. He's been prescribed pain medication and should ultimately be fine.
    Tuesday, 2:06 pm
  • Anderson (finger) makes latest rehab start
    Brett Anderson (finger) gave up one run over 5 2/3 innings Monday in his second minor league rehab start with Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Anderson allowed six hits and one walk while striking out four batters. The oft-injured southpaw now has a 0.96 ERA and 8/2 K/BB ratio in 9 1/3 innings over his first two rehab outings. He's scheduled to throw 85 pitches in his next start, though the Rockies have yet to decide whether it will be in the majors or the minors. We should know more in the next couple of days.

  • Pablo Sandoval (elbow) can't extend arm
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy is hoping to have Pablo Sandoval (elbow) available off the bench Monday.

    Advice: However, Sandoval is currently still unable to fully extend his left arm, so it seems unlikely. He remains unlikely to need a DL stint, but it's unclear when Sandoval will be ready to play third base again.
    Monday, 5:27 pm
  • Castro (arm) out of Monday's lineup
    Jason Castro is out of Monday's lineup due to discomfort in his left armpit area.

    Advice: Castro will see a doctor regarding the discomfort, so we should know more about his status soon. Carlos Corporan will start behind the plate Monday vs. the Rangers.
    Monday, 2:24 pm
  • Pablo Sandoval (elbow) out again Monday
    Pablo Sandoval (elbow) is not in Monday's lineup against the Athletics.

    Advice: Sandoval left Saturday's game after being hit in the left elbow with a pitch and will now miss his second straight start. X-rays came back negative, but he's dealing with a bone bruise. Consider him day-to-day for now.
