Player Notes

  • Travis (shoulder) receives cortisone shot
    Devon Travis received a cortisone shot in his left shoulder on Wednesday.

    Advice: Travis left Tuesday's game after aggravating the injury. He's slated to rest Thursday before being reevaluated Friday, so a decision about a stint on the disabled list could be made at that time. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:56 pm
  • Lawrie's 4 hits, 4 RBI not enough to beat LAD
    Brett Lawrie went 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles, a homer, three runs scored and four RBI in a loss Wednesday to the Dodgers.

    Advice: He also stole a bag in the monster performance. Lawrie started at third tonight, but he's expected to also draw starts at second base in the wake of Tuesday's Ben Zobrist trade. He's slashing .280/.314/.412 and is on pace for 14 homers, 67 RBI, 54 runs and eight steals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:49 pm
  • Yangervis Solarte goes 4-for-5
    Yangervis Solarte finished 4-for-5 with two doubles and two runs scored Wednesday against the Mets.

    Advice: Solarte is playing fairly regularly with Will Middlebrooks in the minors and Cory Spangenberg on the DH, and he's hit well this month, batting .284 with three homers in 74 at-bats. There's no mixed-league value here at all, but he's giving the Padres a lift. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:38 pm
  • Schoop homers as Orioles edge the Braves
    Jonathan Schoop went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run as the Orioles narrowly defeated the Braves on Wednesday.

    Advice: Schoop's homer, in the third inning off of Michael Foltynewicz, turned out to be the deciding factor as it broke a scoreless tie in the Orioles' shutout. The second baseman has gone yard seven times in 27 games this season while knocking in 15 and batting .268/.310/.561. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:15 pm
  • Goins reaches base 3 times as the Jays win
    Ryan Goins went 2-for-3 with a walk and an RBI double in Wednesday's 8-2 win over the Phillies.

    Advice: The Jays banged out 16 hits against the Phillies' pitching, so Goins' contributions were relative drops in the bucket. Still a productive night. He doubled in a run in the seventh to push the Jays' lead to 8-1 at the time. Goins has otherwise not done much at the dish, batting .227/.274/.323 with two home runs and 26 RBI.

  • Adrianza plates two as Giants top Brewers
    Ehire Adrianza went 1-for-3 and drove home a pair of runs on Wednesday, leading the Giants to a 5-0 victory over the Brewers.

    Advice: Getting a rare start at second base in place of Joe Panik, Adrianza delivered a two-run single as part of a five-run uprising in the seventh inning that broke the game open. The 25-year-old is hitting just .136/.174/.182 in limited action this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:03 pm
  • Justin Turner will miss a few more games
    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday that Justin Turner will miss a few more games due to the infection in his leg.

    Advice: Turner was forced to sit out on Tuesday and Wednesday after a pimple in his leg became infected and required a trip to the emergency room. Look for Alberto Callaspo and Alex Guerrero to continue see additional playing time in his absence. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:56 pm

  • Cano dealing with Grade 1 abdominal strain
    Robinson Cano's MRI results revealed a Grade 1 abdominal strain.

    Advice: The Mariners are hopeful that he will be able to avoid the disabled list and should be cleared to DH in 5-6 days. In the meantime, the M's will play a man short on the bench. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:12 pm
  • Baez goes yard twice in Tuesday's return
    Cubs SS prospect Javier Baez blasted two home runs Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: it was his first game back in Triple-A after missing close to two months with a broken finger. Tuesday marked Baez's third multi-homer game of 2015. He's dominated the minor leagues this season, hitting .325 across 157 at-bats while posting a stellar .399 on base percentage. The 22-year-old has come up in trade rumors and could be dealt ahead of Friday's deadline. Starlin Castro, the Cubs' current shortstop, could also be available. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:27 pm

  • Asdrubal Cabrera homers in Rays' loss
    Asdrubal Cabrera belted a solo homer in Wednesday's loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Cabrera's solo shot in the fifth inning represented the lone run for the Rays. He also gave it back and then some, as a crucial error by the shortstop in the seventh led to the Tigers' only two runs. Cabrera is batting just .231/.281/.373 for Tampa this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:54 am
  • Joe Panik (back) to sit out again Wednesday
    Joe Panik will miss a second straight game Wednesday due to back tightness.

    Advice: Panik noted that it wasn't one play that caused the injury, but rather it's just "one of those things" you have to deal with during a long season. He's considered day-to-day. Ehire Adrianza will get another start at second base Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:24 am
  • Gregorius has four hits, 3 RBI vs. Rangers
    Didi Gregorius went 4-for-5 with three RBI and two runs scored in a lopsided win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gregorius had a three-run triple in the Yankees' 11-run second inning. He added three more singles on the night, raising his batting average nine points with one huge game. Even with nights like Tuesday -- and Monday, when he went 3-for-4 with four RBI -- Gregorius is a defense-first shortstop who is hitting .257/.307/.354 on the year. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:05 pm
  • Ryan collects three RBI in lopsided victory
    Brendan Ryan had two RBI doubles -- both coming in the second inning -- and finished 2-for-6 with three RBI in a win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Advice: The Yankees batted around in an 11-run second inning, with Ryan providing a two-run double early before capping the scoring with another RBI double later in the inning. The offensive performance was unusual for Ryan, who had just eight RBI in 49 games all of last season. Ryan is hitting a deceptive .276/.323/.517 through 11 games this year.

  • Altuve's first five-RBI game propels Astros
    Jose Altuve finished 3-for-5 with five RBI and a run scored in the Astros' 10-5 win over the Angels on Tuesday.

    Advice: Altuve drove in runs in three different innings, proving to be in the right place at the right time on several occasions. He had an RBI single in the second, a two-run single in the fourth and a two-run double in the sixth. The five-RBI game was his first in 606 career games. The second baseman is batting .305/.349/.432 with nine homers, 48 RBI, 54 runs scored and 28 steals overall. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:48 pm
  • Kendrick has 2 of Dodgers' 3 hits in a loss
    Howie Kendrick went 2-for-4 in Tuesday's 2-0 loss to the Athletics.

    Advice: Sonny Gray tossed a three-hit shutout, and Kendrick was responsible for two of those three hits. The second baseman entered the game 3-for-26 in his previous six games, losing nearly 30 points of OPS. He owns a .285/.333/.397 triple-slash line with seven home runs, 40 RBI, and 45 runs scored.
