  • Holt not in Thursday's lineup
    Brock Holt is not in Thursday's lineup against the Braves.

    Advice: Chris Young will make the start in left field despite right-hander Jhoulys Chacin on the mound. Holt is batting just .188/.293/.229 over his last 14 games. Today, 1:23 pm
    New Player Note
    Brock Holt Bos - 1B,2B,3B,SS,OF
  • White Sox recall Carlos Sanchez from AAA
    White Sox recalled INF Carlos Sanchez from Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Sanchez is a .229/.268/.321 career hitter in 524 major league plate appearances. He's not fantasy-relevant. Today, 11:14 am
  • Anthony Rendon getting day off Thursday
    Anthony Rendon is getting the day off Thursday.

    Advice: Stephen Drew will start at third base and bat seventh versus Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola. It's just a day of rest for Rendon, who's off to a sluggish start. Today, 9:12 am
  • Brewers put Scooter Gennett (oblique) on DL
    Brewers placed 2B Scooter Gennett on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right oblique.

    Advice: Gennett suffered the injury during batting practice Tuesday on a cold evening at Wrigley Field. He could be out for a month. It's an especially tough blow because the second baseman was off to a great start this season, sporting an .877 OPS and four home runs in 18 games. Yadiel Rivera, Colin Walsh, and Hernan Perez will fill in at second base. Today, 7:59 am
    15-Day DL
  • Kolten Wong (flu) reaches as pinch-hitter
    Kolten Wong (flu) reached on a pinch-hit infield single Wednesday versus the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Maybe that will help him get off the schneid. Wong, out since Monday with flu-like symptoms, is still batting just .220/.293/.220 in 18 games this year for St. Louis. Jedd Gyorko started at second base Wednesday in Arizona and went 1-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored. Wong should return to the lineup Thursday night. Today, 4:48 am
  • Jose Altuve homers, doubles twice in win
    Jose Altuve homered, doubled twice and scored three times Wednesday as the Astros topped the Mariners 7-4.

    Advice: Altuve has been a fantasy dynamo with his .330 average, six homers, 20 runs, 13 RBI and nine steals in 22 games in what amounts to one-seventh of a season. He has more homers this year than he did in 626 at-bats in 2013. Even in 2014, he had just seven homers in 660 at-bats. Today, 12:11 am
  • Aledmys Diaz stays scorching hot in Arizona
    Aledmys Diaz had a homer, a walk, and a single in the Cardinals' 11-4 rout of Arizona on Wednesday.

    Advice: Diaz finished the night 2-for-4 with two RBI and three runs scored, and he's now batting .468/.500/.823 with four home runs over his first 66 major league plate appearances. This incredible start from the 25-year-old Cuban shortstop is already in historic territory. Maybe it's time for Cardinals manager Mike Matheny to hit him higher than eighth. Yesterday, 10:22 pm
  • Dustin Pedroia collects two homers in win
    Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-5 with two homers and five RBI to lead the Red Sox to a 9-4 win over the Braves on Wednesday.

    Advice: Four games against the Braves was just what the doctor ordered for the Red Sox. Pedroia had two homers in a game for the seventh time in his career (oddly enough, four of those have come since the start of 2015). He also drove in five runs for the seventh time. Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Walker clobbers ninth homer, Mets beat Reds
    Neil Walker enjoyed a big night at the plate in Wednesday's win over the Reds, clobbering his ninth homer of the year and getting on base three times.

    Advice: Walker now has nine homers in 83 plate appearances. He only had seven homers in the entire first half a year ago with Pittsburg. It's perhaps worth noting that Walker had actually been quite bad at Citi Field, hitting just .226/.226/.323 in his first eight home games. It's nice to see the power show up at his home ballpark for the second time this homestand, as he was better on the road in 2015, too. The Mets' second baseman now has a .300/.325/.638 slash line with 12 runs scored and 16 runs batted in. Yesterday, 8:06 pm
  • Extended spring AB's coming for Travis
    Devon Travis (shoulder) will take at-bats during an extended spring game on Friday.

    Advice: Travis has been participating in batting practice as he rehabs from a November shoulder surgery. Friday's showing in extended spring training is a further step toward a potential late-May return to the bigs. Last season, the 25-year-old second baseman hit .304/.361/.498 with eight homers, 18 doubles and 35 RBI across 217 at-bats. Yesterday, 2:11 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Phillips (finger, shin) down again Wednesday
    Brandon Phillips (finger, shin) is out again Wednesday.

    Advice: Ivan DeJesus Jr. will start at second base and bat second against Mets right-hander Matt Harvey. Phillips has bruises on his left hand and shin. He remains day-to-day. Yesterday, 11:40 am
  • Lowrie (calf) drives in run versus Tigers
    Jed Lowrie (calf) went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Tigers.

    Advice: Lowrie missed a game this past weekend with a sore calf, but it was clearly nothing serious. The second baseman has 11 RBI in 20 games this season and he batted cleanup for Oakland on Tuesday night at Comerica Park. Yesterday, 6:03 am

  • Cano crushes grand slam to finish with 6 RBI
    Robinson Cano was a monster in Tuesday's 11-1 win over the Astros, hitting a grand slam and finishing with six RBI.

    Advice: Cano's first two RBI came in relatively modest fashion, as the star second baseman notched a two-run single off Astros starter Dallas Keuchel in the fifth inning. He would do considerably more damage in the seventh. In that frame, Cano stepped up with the bases juice and connected for a grand slam against Astros reliever Michael Feliz. He ended the contest 2-for-4. He has yet to click into one of his traditional hitting grooves and owns a .238 batting average, but the power has been there in spades this season. Cano is slugging .538 and has whacked seven homers for the month of April. He is up to 21 RBI after Tuesday's huge showing. Tuesday, 11:42 pm
  • Russell's two-run triple propels Cubs to win
    Addison Russell hit a two-run triple that helped the Cubs edge the Brewers 4-3 on Tuesday.

    Advice: With two runners on and two outs in the sixth inning, Russell roped a Carlos Torres pitch to right-center to break a 1-1 tie. He turned on the jets to make it to third standing up for his first triple of the season. After the 2-for-4 night, the 22-year-old is batting .234/.342/.375 with two homers, 12 RBI and nine runs scored at the bottom of the Cubs' lineup. Tuesday, 9:03 pm
  • Kipnis connects for second homer of season
    Jason Kipnis hit his second home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Twins.

    Advice: Kipnis got the Indians on the board early, taking Twins starter Ricky Nolasco out to right for a solo homer. The home run was his first in almost two weeks and just his second overall. A modest six-game hitting streak has helped the 29-year-old raise his numbers in recent days, and he's hitting .282/.329/.423 with two homers, eight RBI, 10 runs scored and three steals to date. Tuesday, 8:25 pm
  • Spangenberg (quad) running on treadmill
    Cory Spangenberg (quad) has begun running on an anti-gravity treadmill.

    Advice: Spangenberg landed on the disabled list on April 20 with a left quad strain. It seems to be on the minor side of the severity scale, but the second baseman is still probably two weeks away from returning to action for the Padres. Jemile Weeks has been the primary fill-in at second base in San Diego. Tuesday, 7:54 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Odor hits third home run in win over Yankees
    Rougned Odor hit his third home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Yankees.

    Advice: Batting leadoff once again, Odor got on the board with a solo shot in the eighth inning of a lopsided win. Still, the 22-year-old will take it, as will fantasy owners. Odor enjoyed a big spring but got off to a slow start out of the gate, and through 21 games he's hitting .234/.272/.403 with three homers, 14 RBI, 11 runs scored and four steals. Tuesday, 7:32 pm
  • Forsythe doubles twice, scores vs. Orioles
    Logan Forsythe went 2-for-3 with two doubles and a run scored Tuesday against the Orioles.

    Advice: Forsythe continued playing catalyst atop the Rays' lineup, registering his fourth multi-hit game in his last eight contests. The second baseman is now hitting .306/.383/.556 with three homers, eight RBI and 13 runs scored. It appears as though last year's breakout was a legitimate one. Tuesday, 7:08 pm
  • Padres option Jose Pirela to AAA El Paso
    Padres optioned INF Jose Pirela to Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Pirela was 1-for-5 with two strikeouts in his short stay with the big club. He's a .252/.271/.369 career hitter in 108 plate appearances at the major league level. Tuesday, 3:50 pm
    Not Active
  • Darwin Barney to serve as emergency catcher
    With Russell Martin still out with neck stiffness, Darwin Barney will serve as the Blue Jays' emergency catcher.

    Advice: The Blue Jays will have to make a roster move if the injury lingers, but for now, they're sticking with Josh Thole at catcher. Barney has never played catcher in a major league game. Josh Donaldson has made 10 big league appearances at catcher but manager John Gibbons said he wouldn't risk putting his best player behind the plate. Tuesday, 6:52 am
