  • Padres activate Jedd Gyorko (foot) from DL
    Padres activated 2B Jedd Gyorko from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Gyorko wound up missing close to two months with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. He was batting just .162/.213/.270 in 221 plate appearances before the injury, but the 25-year-old second baseman is capable of much better down the stretch. Gyorko signed a five-year, $35 million contract extension with the Friars in early April.

  • Giants remain interested in trade for Zobrist
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Giants "remain interested" in trading for Ben Zobrist.

    Advice: The Giants don't exactly have a loaded farm system and gave up two good young pitchers to acquire Jake Peavy last week, but it seems they're ready to go all-in (so to speak) as they try to keep pace with the Dodgers in the National League West. Zobrist, 33, has hit .268/.358/.409 in 403 plate appearances this season for Tampa Bay. He could play all around the field for San Francisco.

  • Dan Uggla goes hitless in loss to Dodgers
    Dan Uggla had a rough night in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers going 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts, and also making a critical error that led to an unearned run.

    Advice: Uggla also drew a walk in the ballgame. He's now hitting an unfathomable .152/.234/.217 on the season and is closer to being released than he is to being fantasy relevant once again.
    Yesterday, 8:25 pm
  • Adam Rosales belts first homer in loss to A's
    Adam Rosales belted his first home run of the season as the Rangers fell to the Athletics 9-3 on Sunday.

    Advice: Rosales got the Rangers on the board in the second inning by taking a Scott Kazmir offering over the wall in left field for a two-run homer. He finished the night 1-for-3 and is now hitting .250/.333/.417 with five RBI in his first 24 at-bats on the year.
    Yesterday, 7:35 pm
  • Solarte hits first Padres homer vs. Braves
    Yangervis Solarte went 2-for-5 with his first home run as a member of the Padres in Sunday's loss to the Braves.

    Advice: Solarte has enjoyed a revitalization since being dealt to the Padres, going 7-for-21 (.333) with Sunday's homer, five RBI and five runs scored. The infielder is hitting .260/.341/.396 overall. He'll continue to get everyday playing time for the next two months and is a decent option in NL-only leagues.
    Yesterday, 7:17 pm
  • La Stella has RBI, two runs scored vs. Padres
    Tommy La Stella went 1-for-2 with two walks, two runs scored and an RBI in a win over the Padres on Sunday.

    Advice: La Stella had an RBI single and scored in the third inning, part of a six-run frame by the Braves. The 25-year-old also walked and scored in the seventh inning. La Stella is hitting .288/.363/.356 with a 22/23 BB/K ratio since taking over as the Braves' everyday second baseman in late May.
    Yesterday, 7:11 pm
  • Harrison has monster game in win over Rockies
    Josh Harrison had a monster day on Sunday, going 4-for-6 with a home run, two RBI, two runs scored and two stolen bases in the Pirates' 7-5 victory over the Rockies.

    Advice: Harrison was 5-for-27 since the All-Star break before Sunday's outburst. He's now hitting .294/.330/.447 with six homers and 13 stolen bases overall. He'll continue to find his way into the Pirates lineup on an everyday basis going forward.
    Yesterday, 6:44 pm
  • LeMahieu has another multi-hit game vs. Bucs
    D.J. LeMahieu went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Pirates.

    Advice: LeMahieu is 11-for-23 with a double, two triples and four runs scored in his last six games. On Sunday he also drove in a run with a single. The 26-year-old is hitting .291/.343/.368 on the season.
    Yesterday, 6:31 pm
  • Dodgers activate Arruebarrena, send to High-A
    Dodgers activated SS Erisbel Arruebarrena from the 15-day disabled list and optioned him to High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

    Advice: Arruebarrena had been sidelined since early July due to a right hip flexor strain. He created quite the stir on his minor league rehab assignment, starting a brawl in a game at Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday.

  • Jedd Gyorko to be activated from DL on Monday
    Jedd Gyorko (plantar fasciitis) will be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

    Advice: He has completed a minor league rehab stint with Triple-A El Paso and deemed ready to return. Before hitting the shelf in early June, he had hit just .162/.213/.270 with five homers and 24 RBI in his first 56 games.
    Yesterday, 5:33 pm
  • Padres option Brooks Conrad back to Triple-A
    Padres optioned Brooks Conrad to Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: With Jedd Gyorko returning from the disabled list on Monday, Conrad became expendable. He'll continue to serve as organizational infield depth in the minor leagues.

  • Carpenter records three-hit day against Cubs
    Matt Carpenter went 3-for-4 in a win over the Cubs on Sunday.

    Advice: The three-hit afternoon was his second three-hit game in his last three starts, and Carpenter is 9-for-21 with five runs scored in his last five games. The good stretch has run his line to .284/.377/.392. The leadoff hitter is a strong bet to finish among the NL leaders in runs scored for a second straight year.
    Yesterday, 3:59 pm
  • Gennett pinch hits in loss to Mets on Sunday
    Scooter Gennett popped out in a pinch-hit appearance in Sunday's loss to the Mets.

    Advice: Gennett hadn't seen game action since Tuesday, when he left with right quad tightness. The pinch-hit appearance is a good sign for Gennett, who is expected to return to the lineup on Monday. The second baseman is hitting .304/.342/.480 in what's been a breakout campaign.
    Yesterday, 3:34 pm
  • Murphy doubles, scores in win over Brewers
    Daniel Murphy went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored in the Mets' win over the Brewers on Sunday.

    Advice: Murphy has been locked in at the plate in recent days, going 7-for-12 in his last three games. The hit parade has raised his overall line to .293/.340/.412. With seven home runs and 11 stolen bases, Murphy has a decent shot at his second straight double-double season.
    Yesterday, 3:30 pm
  • Altuve homer among three hits against Marlins
    Jose Altuve went 3-for-4 with a home run and a stolen base in a loss to the Marlins on Sunday.

    Advice: Altuve has been hitting out of his mind since the All-Star break -- which is saying something, considering he led the American League in average heading into the break -- going 18-for-42 (.429) with two homers and six runs scored. He also stole his 42nd base in the game, a good development after he'd been caught stealing in his only two attempts since the midsummer classic. The second baseman is now hitting an impressive .344/.378/.451 for the lowly Astros.
    Yesterday, 3:08 pm
  • Pedroia has two hits, stolen base in victory
    Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Pedroia singled and came around to score on David Ortiz' home run in the third inning. The stolen base was just his third of the season, as his speed has been largely a non-factor this year. He's 6-for-15 in his last four games to run his overall line to .274/.341/.368.
    Yesterday, 2:33 pm
  • Santana triples, drives in two against Sox
    Danny Santana tripled and drove in two runs in Sunday's win over the White Sox.

    Advice: Batting leadoff for the third straight game, Santana delivered an RBI triple in the third inning and added a sacrifice fly in the seventh. The triple was Santana's second of the season. The 23-year-old is hitting .315/.348/.458 and, now healthy, should be a nice player in mixed leagues from here on out.
    Yesterday, 1:59 pm
  • Alberto Callaspo activated from DL
    Athletics activated INF Alberto Callaspo from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Callaspo missed the minimum amount of time with a strained right hamstring. Nate Freiman was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento to clear room on the roster.
    Yesterday, 12:42 pm
  • Aaron Hill (hand) sitting out Sunday
    Aaron Hill (hand) is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Hill had to exit Saturday's contest following a hit by pitch on his right hand. X-rays came back negative, but he's obviously still a bit sore. Consider him day-to-day. Didi Gregorius is at second base Sunday in Hill's place.
    Yesterday, 9:18 am
  • Gennett (quad) expected back on Monday
    Scooter Gennett (quad) is expected to return to the Brewers' lineup on Monday.

    Advice: Gennett is missing his fifth straight game Sunday with a tight right quad, but he made it through running drills before the game with no issues. Rickie Weeks is getting another start at second base Sunday, but expect to see Gennett out there on Monday against the Rays.
    Yesterday, 9:10 am
  • Scooter Gennett (quad) out again Sunday
    Scooter Gennett (quad) remained out of the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's the fifth straight game he's missed with a tight right quad. There's been no indication to this point that a disabled list stint might be required, so consider Gennett day-to-day. Rickie Weeks is getting another start at second base Sunday.
    Yesterday, 8:45 am
  • Astros OF prospect DeShields rips 6th homer
    Astros prospect outfielder Delino DeShields went 1-for-3 with a home run and walk for Double-A Corpus Christi on Saturday.

    Advice: DeShields has struggled in 2014, hitting .213/.342/.265 since the beginning of June and .238/.344/.336 for the season. DeShields has done well in center field and has a good eye at the plate, but he lacks over-the-wall power and has struggled when he was not hitting in the hitter-friendly environment of the California League. DeShields has been passed by George Springer, Domingo Santana, and Teoscar Hernandez, and projects as little more than a fourth outfielder.

  • Willie Bloomquist gets PRP injection in knee
    Willie Bloomquist was given a platelet-rich plasma injection his right knee on Friday.

    Advice: Bloomquist, who was placed on the DL Thursday, is still limping noticeably but says the injection has helped. "It's a bone bruise," Bloomquist said, "and it's painful. I got an injection, and they're hoping by next week it will feel better."

  • Dan Uggla goes hitless in loss
    Dan Uggla went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts and committed an error at second base Saturday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Uggla isn't making a great first impression with the Giants. However, it's not like anyone else on the team had any luck against Clayton Kershaw tonight. Uggla will probably be back in the lineup against lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu on Saturday.
    Saturday, 9:46 pm
  • Scooter Gennett remains out of Brewers lineup
    Scooter Gennett is not in the Brewers starting lineup for the fourth consecutive game on Saturday.

    Advice: He left Tuesday's game with tightness in his right quad and has yet to progress enough to return to the lineup. Rickie Weeks will again draw the start in his place and hit fifth against the Mets.
    Saturday, 12:14 pm
  • Callaspo to play in rehab game on Saturday
    Alberto Callaspo (hamstring) will play in a minor league rehab game with High-A Stockton on Saturday.

    Advice: If all goes well, he's still looking at a return to the Athletics on Sunday. The veteran infielder has been sidelined since July 11 with a strained hamstring.
    Saturday, 5:56 am
  • Dan Uggla goes 0-for-2 in Giants debut
    Dan Uggla went 0-for-2 before being removed in a double-switch in his Giants debut Friday.

    Advice: Uggla wasn't responsible for any of Zack Greinke's 10 strikeouts, so at least he had something going for him. The Giants are facing lefties the next two days, but it won't get much easier for Uggla with Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu on the hill. He's 1-for-12 with six strikeouts lifetime against Kershaw.
    Friday, 10:51 pm
  • Zobrist has four hits Friday vs. Red Sox
    Ben Zobrist went 4-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored Friday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Only one of Zobrist's four hits left the infield, but the one that did tied the game in the seventh inning. The Rays would eventually take the lead in the frame, which they wouldn't relinquish. Zobrist, like David Price, has seen his name surface in trade rumors over the past few weeks, but a deal appears unlikely now that the Rays have turned things around in a hurry.
    Friday, 7:55 pm
  • Aaron Hill has three hits in loss to Phillies
    Aaron Hill had a nice night at the dish in Friday's loss to the Phillies, going 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles and a run scored.

    Advice: A popular name in trade rumblings, the veteran infielder may be donning a new jersey at this time next week. With the three-hit effort, he is slashing .255/.289/.390 with eight homers and 48 RBI on the year.
    Friday, 7:37 pm
  • Matt Carpenter has three hits in loss to Cubs
    Matt Carpenter went 3-for-5 and belted a solo home run in a losing effort against the Cubs on Friday afternoon.

    Advice: Carpenter's solo shot off Travis Wood in the fifth inning was his sixth homer of the season. He's enjoying another very solid season atop the Cardinals lineup, slashing .282/.375/.393 with 65 runs scored and 36 RBI.
    Friday, 4:54 pm
  • Dan Uggla joins Giants, in lineup on Friday
    Giants purchased the contract of Dan Uggla from Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Uggla, who was signed to a minor league contract on Monday, will now be given an opportunity to see regular work at second base for the Giants with Marco Scutaro and Ehire Adrianza on the shelf. He's batting seventh in his Giants debut on Friday, and could carve out value in NL-only formats if he can find his power stroke.
    Friday, 3:55 pm
  • Daniel Murphy unlikely to be traded by Mets
    Newsday's Marc Carig reports that teams have reached out to the Mets about trading for Daniel Murphy, but the club is "more likely to keep Murphy rather than deal him away."

    Advice: Murphy, who made his first All-Star team this season, is batting .287/.335/.406 with seven homers, 38 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 2014. The 29-year-old is making $5.7 million this year and will be eligible for arbitration for a final time over the winter. He's been connected to the Giants and Blue Jays but it sounds like the Mets would prefer to hang on to him for the time being.
    Thursday, 9:29 pm
  • Santana ends Noesi's shutout with a home run
    Danny Santana ended Hector Noesi's shutout bid with a two-run home run, his only hit in three at-bats as the Twins fell to the White Sox on Thursday.

    Advice: Santana took Noesi deep to right field to put his team on the board in the eighth, but it was too little, too late at that point. The 23-year-old has hit safely in five of six games since returning from the All-Star break -- and the disabled list -- on July 18. He owns a .325/.361/.465 slash line with three home runs, 18 RBI, and six stolen bases in 167 plate appearances this season.
    Thursday, 8:19 pm
  • Diamondbacks 'looking to trade' Aaron Hill
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Diamondbacks are "looking to trade" Aaron Hill.

    Advice: It appears that they're much more likely to move Hill than Martin Prado, as Heyman says the club is "barely listening" to inquiries on Prado. Hill is batting .251 with eight homers and 49 RBI in a down season and is still owed $28 million through 2016, so Arizona probably wouldn't receive a whole lot in return.
    Thursday, 4:09 pm
  • Willie Bloomquist to undergo MRI on knee
    Willie Bloomquist will undergo an MRI on his right knee Thursday.

    Advice: Bloomquist hurt the knee while running to first base on Wednesday. He's already been placed on the disabled list, but a timetable for his return won't be known until the MRI results come back.

  • M's place Bloomquist on 15-day DL
    Mariners placed INF Willie Bloomquist on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee contusion.

    Advice: Bloomquist apparently suffered the injury during Wednesday's game. Chris Taylor has essentially taken his place on the active roster and could push Brad Miller for playing time at shortstop.

  • Scooter Gennett (quad) out again Thursday
    Scooter Gennett (quad) is out of the Brewers' lineup again Thursday.

    Advice: Gennett left Tuesday's game due to right quad tightness and will now miss his second straight start. He might have to sit for another couple of days. Rickie Weeks is starting at second base again Thursday and will bat fifth against Dillon Gee.
    Thursday, 1:17 pm
  • Pedroia getting a day of rest on Thursday
    Dustin Pedroia is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: It's a routine day of rest for the 30-year-old second baseman, who has registered a disappointing .269/.337/.363 batting line with four home runs and two stolen bases in 99 games this season. Brock Holt is at second.
    Thursday, 6:14 am
  • Harrison knocks in a pair of runs with a 2B
    Josh Harrison finished 2-for-4 with a two-run double in Wednesday's win against the Dodgers.

    Advice: The National League All-Star has slumped since returning from the break. In fact, Wednesday's performance was his first multi-RBI game since July 10. He doubled in a pair of runs in the first inning to cap off a four-run outburst. The talented 27-year-old is slashing .291/.329/.437 with five home runs, 31 RBI, and 11 stolen bases.
    Wednesday, 6:53 pm
  • Callaspo (hamstring) could be back Sunday
    A's manager Bob Melvin said Alberto Callaspo (hamstring) could be activated Sunday when first eligible.

    Advice: It will come right down to the wire, as Tuesday was the first day he was able to take batting practice since being placed on the DL. The veteran infielder may not need a rehab stint before being activated.
    Wednesday, 4:20 pm
  • Scooter Gennett not in lineup Wednesday
    Scooter Gennett (quad) is not in the Brewers' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Gennett exited Tuesday's game against the Reds with right quad tightness. There's been no indication to this point that a stint on the disabled list might be required, but he's expected to need a few more days to recover. Rickie Weeks is getting a rare start versus a right-hander Wednesday.
    Wednesday, 8:01 am
  • Altuve singles three times in victory vs A's
    Jose Altuve went 3-for-6 with three singles in Tuesday's extra-innings victory over the A's.

    Advice: These days, it feels strange if Jose Altuve doesn't have a multi-hit game. The diminutive second-baseman is slashing .338/.374/.444 atop Houston's lineup. He also has 41 steals, though he was caught stealing in this game for just the fourth time on the year.
    Tuesday, 11:51 pm
  • Hill homers, drives in three vs Tigers
    Aaron Hill went 1-for-3 with three RBI and a home run in the Diamondbacks' 5-4 win against the Tigers.

    Advice: The home run, a first inning solo shot, was just Hill's eighth of the season. His other two RBI came on a third inning sacrifice fly and a sixth inning RBI groundout. While Hill's batting a rather pedestrian .251/.284/.380 on the year, he's doing a decent job knocking in runs from the two-hole in Arizona's lineup, with 48 RBI notches on the belt as we near August.
