  • Rays outright Allan Dykstra to AAA level
    Rays sent 1B Allan Dykstra outright to Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Dykstra was designated for assignment by the Rays this weekend to clear a roster spot for James Loney. The 27-year-old passed through waivers unclaimed despite owning a nice .856 career minor league OPS.

  • Pirela (concussion) begins rehab assignment
    Jose Pirela (concussion) began a rehab assignment Sunday with the High-A Tampa Yankees.

    Advice: Pirela served as Tampa's designated hitter in his rehab debut and went 0-for-4. The 25-year-old catcher had been on the shelf since March 22 with a bad concussion. He'll head to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre once he's fully healthy and his timing is right.

  • Colome (pneumonia) goes six strong in rehab
    Alex Colome (illness) tossed six innings of one-run ball Sunday at Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Colome yielded only four hits and walked none while striking out six. He threw 45 of his 63 pitches for strikes. The 26-year-old right-hander arrived late to Rays camp this spring due to visa issues and then caught a bad case of pneumonia once he did finally make it to Florida. Colome finally appears ready to join the Tampa Bay rotation and could be worth a look in some deeper fantasy formats.

  • Rajai Davis not worried about groin tightness
    Rajai Davis said Sunday evening that he doesn't believe his groin injury is serious.

    Advice: Davis had to jog to first base in the ninth inning Sunday after recording his third hit of the game and was then removed. But he expressed optimism about the groin discomfort in the clubhouse afterward. "I don't think it's serious at all," Davis said. "I just think it's sore, tight. I've been running around on it a lot the last couple of days. I guess I wasn't used to that. If I get my body used to it, I think I'll be all right." The 34-year-old is batting .341/.449/.488 with six stolen bases and 11 runs scored in 14 games (10 starts) this season.

  • Marisnick homers, scores three times Sun.
    Jake Marisnick (quad) went 2-for-4 with a homer, two RBI, two stolen bases, and three runs scored in his return to the Astros' lineup Sunday against the A's.

    Advice: Marisnick sat out Friday and Saturday due to soreness in his right quad, but he returned with a vengeance on Sunday afternoon in Oakland. The 24-year-old center fielder is now batting .364/.408/.591 with two home runs and six stolen bases in 15 games this season. Hopefully he'll start moving up the Astros' batting order. Marisnick has hit ninth in all 15 of his starts so far.

  • Alex Rodriguez blasts 659th home run in win
    Alex Rodriguez inched one step closer to tying Willie Mays, blasting his 659th career home run in Sunday's 6-4 victory over the Mets.

    Advice: His solo shot came courtesy of Mets starter Jon Niese and got the Yankees on the board in the first inning. He would also add an RBI double, finishing the night 2-for-4. The 39-year-old has been awfully impressive thus far in 2015, slashing .267/.405/.583 with five homers and 13 RBI.

  • Eovaldi hit hard by Mets in no-decision
    Nathan Eovaldi was hit hard in a no-decision against the Mets on Sunday, allowing four runs on seven hits in just 4 1/3 innings of work.

    Advice: The hard-throwing right-hander did manage to rack up six strikeouts on the night without issuing a free pass, but couldn't get himself out of a jam in the fifth inning to earn a potential victory. While he owns an impressive 20/5 K/BB ratio through 21 2/3 innings on the season, Eovaldi will carry a 4.15 and worrisome 1.66 WHIP into Sunday's matchup against the Red Sox in Boston.
    Yesterday, 7:54 pm
  • Santiago pitches into sixth, allows two runs
    Hector Santiago surrendered two runs (one earned) over 5 1/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: Santiago hit Rougned Odor with the bases loaded to force in a run in the second inning, then gave up a sacrifice fly to Mitch Mooreland in the third. Those would be the only runs the Rangers would manage off Santiago. Impressive in its way, that he held them to just two runs, as Santiago walked six batters in the contest. It could have been much, much worse. It should be noted that Santiago had just six walks total coming into the game. His control isn't perfect, but it's not nearly as bad as it looked on Sunday. The southpaw now holds a 2.28 ERA and 1.23 WHIP and has a road date with the defending champion Giants in his next start.
    Yesterday, 6:10 pm
  • Morrow superb over seven innings vs LAD
    Brandon Morrow pitched a gem against the Dodgers on Sunday, allowing just one run over seven innings.

    Advice: This is the third time in four starts that Morrow has pitched seven innings (he went six innings in his other start). Pretty impressive for a guy who had to win the No. 5 spot in the rotation out of Spring Training. Against the Dodgers, he struck out four, scattered five hits and walked just one. Morrow's only mistake came on a solo home run by Alex Guerrero in the fifth inning. Otherwise, everything came up aces. Through 27 innings, he holds a 2.67 ERA and a 19/6 K/BB ratio. As long as he stays healthy, he has the talent to put up numbers. Morrow will look to continue his sparkling run on a mountainous road date with the Rockies next Saturday.
    Yesterday, 3:53 pm
  • Baker pitches competently in loss to Padres
    Scott Baker allowed three runs in seven innings in a loss to the Padres on Sunday.

    Advice: Considering that Baker had been toiling away for Triple-A Oklahoma City prior to the game, this was a pretty impressive start. He lasted seven innings and struck out six while allowing just four hits and three runs. If Baker continues throwing well, there's no reason why the Dodgers wouldn't keep him in the rotation, especially given the tenuous nature of the team's pitching staff. Brandon McCarthy (elbow) and Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) are both out for the foreseeable future and on top of that, the Dodgers are about to embark on a 17-game stretch without a day off. Long-time Twin Baker struggled in 2014, posting a 5.47 ERA in 80 2/3 innings for the Rangers, but the move to the NL should benefit the 33-year-old right-hander. He could be worth a look as a streaming option.
    Yesterday, 3:42 pm
  • Miley surrenders six runs in limited innings
    Wade Miley was absolutely pulverized by the Orioles on Sunday, allowing seven runs (six earned) in just 2 1/3 innings.

    Advice: All six of the earned runs came in a monster third inning for Baltimore, as Miley slowly and methodically melted down. After a pair of singles and a walk, he lost the strike zone against Adam Jones and forced in a run. The Orioles then proceeded to hit two RBI singles and an RBI double and Miley was pulled from the game. By the end of the inning, the score was 7-0 Orioles (they would go on to score 18 runs for the game). Miley has now allowed 13 earned runs in his last 10 1/3 innings and the 28-year-old lefty probably would do best to avoid looking at the stat sheet any time soon, as he currently holds an 8.62 ERA and 1.79 WHIP over just 15 2/3 innings. He'll have to do better than that when he faces the rival Yankees in his next start.
    Yesterday, 1:53 pm
  • Coco Crisp (elbow) close to taking BP
    Coco Crisp (elbow) could take batting practice by the end of the week.

    Advice: Crisp is progressing ahead of schedule in his recovery from surgery to remove a bone spur and chips from his right elbow. It's possible he could return around mid-May.
    Yesterday, 11:14 am
    15-Day DL
  • Giants/Rockies postponed because to rain
    Sunday's game between the Giants and Rockies has been postponed due to rain.

    Advice: No makeup date has been announced yet. Scheduled starters Tim Lincecum and Tyler Matzek will presumably be pushed back a day.
    Yesterday, 10:52 am
  • Mo confirms Waino (Achilles) likely done
    Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak confirmed in an interview on KMOX 1120 AM on Sunday that Adam Wainwright (Achilles) is likely done for the season.

    Advice: "I would imagine that with this injury he will not pitch again this season, but we want to wait for the reports Monday," the GM said. It's confirmation of an earlier report from FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal as well as what others had speculated. Losing Wainwright is obviously a major hit to the Cards as they seek their third straight division title and fifth straight playoff appearance.

    15-Day DL
  • Ryan Cook recalled from Triple-A
    Athletics recalled RHP Ryan Cook from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Cook failed to crack the Opening Day roster following a poor Cactus League showing, but he bounced back with five scoreless appearances at Nashville. The A's will use him in middle relief.
    Yesterday, 9:04 am
  • Ryan Braun absent from Sunday's lineup
    Ryan Braun is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a routine day of rest for the struggling slugger. Aramis Ramirez is also getting a breather, as Gerardo Parra is in right field and Hector Gomez is at third base.
    Yesterday, 8:24 am
  • Yadier Molina (knee) sitting out again Sunday
    Yadier Molina (knee) remained out of the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Molina took a foul tip off his right knee during Friday's game and remains sore. He's considered day-to-day. Tony Cruz is getting another start behind the plate Sunday, while Cody Stanley has been recalled to provide depth. The Cards are also giving Matt Holliday and Jon Jay a rest Sunday, with Mark Reynolds handling left field and Peter Bourjos center.
    Yesterday, 8:10 am
  • Jay Bruce sitting out on Sunday
    Jay Bruce is not in the Reds' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He had been slated to sit before Saturday's game was rained out and remains out of the lineup the next day. Brennan Boesch is in right field Sunday in Bruce's place.
    Yesterday, 6:26 am
  • Ian Kennedy torched for eight runs
    Ian Kennedy was blasted for eight runs in 4 1/3 innings by the Dodgers in his return from the disabled list Saturday.

    Advice: Kennedy, who didn't make a rehab start during his brief time on the DL, gave up three homers in a start for the first time since Aug. 16, 2013. Expect a better showing next week in a home start against the Rockies.
    Saturday, 9:36 pm
  • Justin Upton homers twice for Padres
    Justin Upton homered twice and knocked in five runs in a losing cause Saturday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Upton probably won't quite match last April, when he hit .326 with eight homers, but he's off to another nice start. It was his eighth career two-homer game and first since last April 10.
