  • Cubs place Chris Denorfia on disabled list
    Cubs placed OF Chris Denorfia on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

    Advice: Denorfia suffered the injury while running the bases in Monday's loss to the Cardinals. The 34-year-old outfielder will likely be out for the next three weeks.

  • Saunders (knee) out again Tuesday night
    Michael Saunders (knee) is out again Tuesday.

    Advice: Saunders had fluid drained from his surgically-repaired knee on Monday and the Jays intend to rest him for much of this week. The 28-year-old left fielder is batting just .222 with a .566 OPS since his debut.

  • MRI turns up clean on Hanley's left shoulder
    An MRI came up clean on Hanley Ramirez's shoulder.

    Advice: Ramirez was lifted from Monday's game against the Rays after banging his left shoulder against the left field wall at Fenway Park while trying to make a catch. He showed improved range of motion on Tuesday and is hoping to avoid the disabled list, but he'll be out for at least a handful of games. The 31-year-old slugger had racked up 10 home runs and 22 RBI through just 92 at-bats.

  • Swisher (knees) activated, at DH in '15 debut
    Indians activated 1B Nick Swisher from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Swisher is starting at DH and batting sixth for the Tribe in his 2015 regular-season debut Tuesday night against the Royals. He missed the first month of the season while rehabbing dual knee surgeries. The 34-year-old only has fringe value in standard mixed fantasy leagues after batting .208/.278/.331 with eight home runs and 42 RBI in 97 games last summer.

  • Indians option Tyler Holt to AAA Columbus
    Indians optioned OF Tyler Holt to Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: Holt was booted off the 25-man roster Tuesday to clear a spot for Nick Swisher, who is returning from dual knee surgeries. Holt should get another shot later this year.

  • Josh Harrison not in Pirates' lineup Tuesday
    Josh Harrison is not in the Pirates' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Reds.

    Advice: It's a day of mental and physical rest for Harrison, who's batting just .188/.220/.313 in 23 games this season. Jung Ho Kang is starting at third base and batting seventh for the Pirates on Tuesday night.

  • Leonys Martin (wrist) out of lineup Tuesday
    Leonys Martin (wrist) is not in the Rangers' starting lineup on Tuesday against the Astros.

    Advice: Martin injured his left wrist Monday while trying to make a catch. X-rays turned up negative, but he has some soreness. Delino DeShields Jr. is in center field and batting eighth for the Rangers on Tuesday night.

  • Steve Pearce out Tuesday with stomach virus
    Steve Pearce is out Tuesday with a stomach virus.

    Advice: The illness drove him from Sunday's series finale against the Rays and he's still apparently dealing with some symptoms. Pearce will aim to return on Wednesday.

  • Craig starting in left field for Red Sox
    Allen Craig is in the starting lineup and playing left field in Tuesday's game against the Rays.

    Advice: Craig homered on Friday, but he's been largely ineffective in his bench role for the Red Sox. This season, he's hitting just .146/.222/.220 in 41 at-bats. His years of hitting in the .300's for the Cardinals feel like they occurred in another lifetime.

  • Buxton delivers walk-off home run
    Twins prospect OF Byron Buxton hit a walk-off home run on Monday for Double-A Chattanooga.

    Advice: Buxton is batting .455/.513/.848 with seven extra-base hits during his current eight-game hitting streak, and he’s also scored 12 runs and gone 5-for-5 on the base paths in that span. The 21-year-old top prospect got off to a slow start offensively in the Southern League but has quickly turned things around, with a .286/.353/.527 batting line and 11 extra-base hits (3 HR, 5 3B, 3 2B) through 23 games. Provided he stays healthy, Buxton should make his highly anticipated big league debut later this season.

  • Nimmo doubles twice
    Mets prospect OF Brandon Nimmo went 3-for-5 with two doubles on Monday for Double-A Binghamton.

    Advice: The three-hit performance was Nimmo’s second in as many days, and he’s batting .372 with 16 hits in his last 10 games. The 22-year-old is off to a strong start this season in his return to Binghamton, batting .304/.375/.457 with nine extra-base hits and nine walks through 23 games. Nimmo logged 65 games in the Eastern League last summer and showed a bit more power without sacrificing his patient approach. If all goes as planned, Nimmo should split 2015 between the Double- and Triple-A levels, putting him on track to debut the following year.

  • Tapia extends hitting streak to seven games
    Rockies prospect OF Raimel Tapia went 3-for-4 with a double and scored two runs on Monday for High-A Modesto.

    Advice: Tapia pushed his hitting streak to seven games, and he’s batting .423/.484/.962 with three home runs and three doubles in that span. The 21-year-old outfielder has opened the season on a tear in the California League, with a .340/.370/.577 batting line, 16 extra-base hits and 21 RBI in 23 games. Tapia’s bat is for real, as he’s a career .319/.376/.443 hitter in 341 minor league games, but it’ll be interesting to see how his aggressive approach translates in Double-A.

  • Mets option Eric Campbell to Triple-A
    Mets optioned INF/OF Eric Campbell to Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: With David Wright (hamstring) out injured, Campbell chipped in some decent playing time. In 50 at-bats, he hit .200/.323/.320 with a home run and a pair of steals. Campbell doesn't offer much of a bat, but he does have some positional flexibility. The 28-year-old will bide his time in Vegas.

  • Mastroianni traded to Nationals for cash
    Nationals acquired OF Darin Mastroianni from the Phillies for cash considerations.

    Advice: Mastroianni didn't make the Phillies' Opening Day roster and has not seen time in the bigs this season. The Nationals have certainly dealt with their fair share of outfield injuries, but as a .212/.274/.289 career hitter, Mastroianni doesn't have major league upside.

  • Ryan Rua transferred to 60-day DL
    Rangers transferred OF Ryan Rua to the 60-day disabled list with a foot injury.

    Advice: Rua's right foot is a bit of a mess, as he's recovering from a broken bone and a severe ankle sprain. The Rangers were hoping he would be ready to return by late May, but this is not going to be the case. Josh Hamilton has Rua's former starting job now. There's no current timetable for Rua's return.

    60-Day DL
  • Brewers option Logan Schafer to Triple-A
    Brewers optioned OF Logan Schafter to Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: With Scooter Gennett recovered from a hand injury, Schafer was the corresponding roster move. Schafer's a solid defensive outfielder, but doesn't have much offensive upside. He'll serve as minor league depth for the time being, but could see a call-up later in the year if the Brewers are in need of an outfield glove.

  • Blue Jays recall Chris Colabello from minors
    Blue Jays recalled 1B Chris Colabello from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: The 31-year-old Colabello has been smashing the ball in Buffalo, hitting .337 with five home runs and a .975 OPS over 23 games. He started out red-hot for the Twins last season before cooling off. Keep an eye on him to see if he jumps out to a fast start when given at-bats, but he's most likely not going to be roster-able in any league other than the deepest AL-only ones. Jonathan Diaz was optioned to Triple-A to make room for the first baseman.

  • Yelich (back) likely to come off DL on Friday
    Christian Yelich (back) will likely be activated from the disabled list Friday.

    Advice: The original timeline had him returning Thursday, but the Marlins want him to play another minor league rehab game. He's 1-for-5 with a walk and a stolen base over his first two games with High-A Jupiter. Yelich has been sidelined for two weeks with a herniated disk in his back.

  • Pagan's RBI single proves enough for Giants
    Angel Pagan's RBI single in the third inning proved to be the only run the Giants would need in Monday's victory against the Padres.

    Advice: One run was enough with the way Madison Bumgarner pitched for the Giants. They gave him two. Pagan came to the plate in the third inning with runners on first and second and no outs, serving a Tyson Ross offering to left-center to plate the first run of the game. The veteran outfielder has hit safely in nine out of his last 10 games and is now hitting .350/.373/.447 with eight RBI in 110 plate appearances.

  • Cruz rips 14th homer to lead Mariners to win
    Nelson Cruz broke a scoreless tie in the seventh inning with a solo home run, his 14th of the season, to help the Mariners take down the Angels on Monday.

    Advice: Angels starter Matt Shoemaker was twirling a gem until Cruz ripped a line drive down the left field line to put the Mariners up 1-0. He finished 1-for-4 on the night. Cruz has four home runs in his last four ballgames. Along with the 14 in total, he has knocked in 26 runs and is batting .340/.382/.796.
