    After sitting out Tuesday with a bruised thumb, Alex Rios return to action Wednesday and went 2-for-4 with two RBI in a win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Rios notched the first hit of the day with a sharp single in the first inning before plating two runs with a bloop double in the second.

  • Marcell Ozuna stays hot with another homer
    Marcell Ozuna went 3-for-4 with an RBI double and solo homer in Wednesday's loss to the Rangers.

  • Tampa Bay brings back Wil Myers from DL
    Rays activated OF Wil Myers from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Myers missed nearly three months with a fractured right wrist but is ready to go now after slugging a couple homers over seven rehab games. The reigning American League Rookie of the Year was hitting just .227/.313/.354 at the time of his injury but is worth scooping back up in leagues where he might have been dropped. Rotoworld.com

  • Kirk Nieuwenhuis nursing stiff neck
    Kirk Nieuwenhuis was scratched from Wednesday's lineup due to a stiff neck.

    Advice: The neck issue also kept him out of action Tuesday. It doesn't at this point appear to be more than a day-to-day situation. Curtis Granderson had been slated for DH duty, but he'll now play right field and Eric Campbell will be the DH. Rotoworld.com

  • Jake Marisnick hitless in return to action
    Jake Marisnick went 0-for-5 at the plate in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Marisnick wasn't in Sunday's lineup in part because he's dealing with some soreness in his lower back. He's cooled off of late after a hot start with the Astros. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 2:25 am
  • Almonte has 4 hits, run and RBI in loss
    Abraham Almonte went 4-for-5 with a double, run scored and an RBI in Tuesday's setback against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Almonte was spectacular at the dish, but an adventure on the base paths, as he was caught stealing and later thrown out to end the game. Fortunately, the latter two mistakes won't be counted in the vast majority of formats. He's almost unowned across formats, and that needs to change. The 25-year-old -- Seattle's Opening Day center fielder and leadoff hitter -- is slashing .361/.368/.528 since coming over in the Chris Denorfia deal. As long as he's hot and playing every day, Almonte should be started in NL-only formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Jay sends Cards home winners via walk-off HBP
    Jon Jay was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the ninth inning Tuesday, giving the Cardinals a walk-off, 5-4 win over the Reds.

    Advice: Jay has the strange distinction of leading the league with 15 hit-by-pitches this season, and none were more important than Tuesday's. The spectacle takes away from the fact that Jay also had two hits and scored twice in the victory. He owns an 11-game hitting streak that has his season line up to .307/.378/.402, and he's finding everyday at-bats in the Cardinals lineup. Mixed league owners need to start taking note.

  • Ludwick delivers two-run double vs. Cardinals
    Ryan Ludwick went 2-for-4 with a two-run double against the Cardinals on Tuesday.

    Advice: With the bases loaded and one out, Ludwick came through with the big hit to give the Reds a lead. The outfielder has seven RBI in his last six games, giving him 40 RBI on the season. Ludwick owns a pedestrian .259/.319/.405 mark overall. Rotoworld.com

  • Giancarlo Stanton plates winning run in 10th
    Giancarlo Stanton singled in Jeff Baker in the bottom of the 10th to give the Marlins a 4-3 win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Stanton redeemed himself at the end after a highlight-reel misplay in seventh, when Rougned Odor was able to round the bases after doubling off the wall. Stanton finished the game with two hits and two walks. Oddly enough, although four Marlins were intentionally walked in the game, Stanton's two were legit. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:00 pm
  • Alex Rios (thumb) scratched from lineup
    Alex Rios was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to a bruised right thumb.

    Advice: It's apparently been a lingering issue for the outfielder, and he was unable to take batting practice Tuesday. Although it doesn't appear at this point that a stint on the disabled list will be required, Rios seems likely to miss more than just a day. Jim Adduci took his spot in the lineup. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:22 pm
  • Cuddyer out Tuesday due to sore hamstring
    Michael Cuddyer is sitting out Tuesday night against the Royals because of hamstring soreness.

    Advice: Drew Stubbs is starting in center field and Charlie Blackmon is starting in right field versus Kansas City. Cuddyer has been a highly-productive player for the Rockies when healthy, but the veteran outfielder has appeared in just 33 of the club's 124 games in 2014. Rotoworld.com

  • Myers (wrist) won't be activated Tuesday
    Wil Myers (wrist) will not be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

    Advice: There was some speculation that Myers could be activated as soon as Tuesday, but he'll remain on his minor league rehab assignment for now. The 23-year-old is hitting .286 (6-for-21) with two home runs and a double over six games with Triple-A Durham. His return could be any day now. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:15 pm
  • Ackley's three-hit night not enough vs. Phils
    Dustin Ackley singled, doubled twice, and drove in a run, but it wasn't enough as the Mariners lost to the Phillies on Monday.

    Advice: Ackley was the extent of the Mariners' offense against Jerome Williams, and he was only able to help the Mariners score their first run in the eighth on a double to left field -- when it was too little, too late. Ackley had been slumping badly following a scorching return from the All-Star break. On the season, he's slashing .247/.293/.375 with eight home runs and 47 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:10 pm
  • Grant Green not expected back this week
    Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Monday that Grant Green (back) returning before the end of the week is "probably a long shot."

    Advice: Green ran the bases recently at extended spring training and is nearing a rehab assignment. However, it sounds like he won't be activated until at least next week. The 26-year-old has been out since July 23 with a lumbar sprain. Rotoworld.com

  • No timetable for baseball activities for Zim
    Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) remains without a timetable to resume baseball activities.

    Advice: Zimmerman has already missed a month with a Grade 3 right hamstring strain and remains limited to working out on an underwater treadmill. The Nationals are hopeful that he'll return before the end of the season, but it's not a given. "There is no exact timetable. It's hard to put concrete dates on anything, because you just don't know. You are starting to feel better and that is a good sign," Zimmerman said. "I've been doing a few rehab things. There's really nothing you can do right now." Rotoworld.com

  • Adam Eaton (oblique) takes dry swings
    Adam Eaton (oblique) took some dry swings left-handed on Monday.

    Advice: He still needs to take swings from the right side, but Eaton feels good about his chances of being activated from the disabled list on August 24 when first eligible. The young outfielder was batting .435/.489/.518 over his previous 22 games prior to the injury. Rotoworld.com

    Monday, 12:07 pm
  • Wil Myers (wrist) to play left, right field
    Rays manager Joe Maddon plans to use Wil Myers (wrist) all around the outfield once he is activated.

    Advice: Myers hit a two-run homer Sunday in his sixth rehab game with Triple-A Durham and could return to the Rays' active roster as soon as Tuesday. Maddon likes what he's been seeing from Kevin Kiermaier in right field, so Myers will probably play primarily in left field down the stretch. "(Myers) can play both (left and right)," Maddon said. "He can play all over the place. He's not locked into one spot." Rotoworld.com

  • Cuddyer hits for cycle as Rockies sweep Reds
    Michael Cuddyer hit for the cycle and drove home three runs, leading the Rockies to a 10-5 victory in the second game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Reds.

    Advice: It's the second time in Cuddyer's career that he's hit for the cycle, accomplishing the feat with the Twins in 2009. He got the hardest part out of the way early with a triple in the first inning. After striking out in his second at-bat, Cuddyer homered off Dylan Axelrod to start the sixth inning, added a single in the seventh and hammered a two-run double in the eighth. The 35-year-old is hitting .331/.376/.546 with six homers and 19 RBI on the season, and should provide a nice boost to fantasy owners down the stretch. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 10:39 pm
  • Ludwick goes deep as Reds drop nightcap
    Ryan Ludwick blasted his eighth home run of the season, but it wasn't enough to overcome the Rockies in the nightcap of Sunday's doubleheader against the Rockies.

    Advice: Ludwick also drew a walk in the contest, finishing 1-for-3. He's now hitting .260/.322/.408 on the season with eight homers and 38 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Rajai Davis (thumb) listed as day-to-day
    Rajai Davis is listed as day-to-day after leaving Sunday's game against the Mariners with a bruised thumb.

    Giancarlo Stanton finished 2-for-4 with a homer and four RBI Sunday in a 10-3 rout of the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Stanton launched a three-run homer in the bottom of the first inning and added an RBI single in the bottom of the seventh. The 24-year-old slugger is batting .295/.398/.566 with 32 home runs and a career-high 88 RBI in 124 games this season. He should be among the leading vote-getters for 2014 National League MVP when all is said and done. Rotoworld.com

  • Jake Marisnick nursing sore back
    Jake Marisnick is dealing with some soreness in his lower back.

    Advice: He's not in Sunday's lineup, though Astros manager Bo Porter insists the back ailment isn't the reason why. Marisnick is hitting .293/.311/.397 with one homer and five RBI over 15 games with Houston. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Cuddyer is batting second in his return to the Rockies' lineup Saturday after missing three months with a fracture in his left shoulder. He's been highly productive when healthy during his time with Colorado and should hold significant fantasy value down the stretch. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 1:51 pm
  • Marisnick has go-ahead hit vs. Red Sox
    Jake Marisnick delivered a 10th inning go-ahead, two-run double in a 5-3 win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: Marisnick dropped a bloop just inside the right-field line which bounced into the stands for ground-rule double. The 23-year-old finished the evening 2-for-5 and is now hitting .315 (17-for-54) since coming over from the Marlins in the Jarred Cosart deal. His plate discipline is a work in progress, but he has speed to burn and is worth monitoring in deeper formats. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:37 pm
  • Stanton reaches bases three times vs. AZ

    Advice: Stanton has now driven in 10 runs over his last nine games and currently leads the National League with 84 RBI. He's also tops with 31 homers. Throw in his .293/.397/.562 batting line and his 10 stolen bases and it's easy to see why he's quickly rising in a suddenly wide-open race for the National League MVP award. Rotoworld.com

  • Maybin begins playing in minor league games
    Cameron Maybin will begin playing in minor league games on Friday with Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Maybin is currently serving a 25 game suspension for testing positive for amphetamines, and is allowed to play in five minor league rehab games before rejoining the Padres on August 20. He could be a boost to teams in desperate need of speed down the stretch, provided he finds regular playing time in the Padres outfield. Rotoworld.com

  • Ludwick goes 3-for-4 with a homer in a win
    Ryan Ludwick finished 3-for-4 with an RBI double and a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: If not for Ludwick, the Reds might not have scored at all against Jorge De La Rosa. Ludwick doubled in a run in the second and later scored on a Zack Cozart single. Ludwick then blasted a home run to left field in the sixth, his seventh of the season. The 36-year-old has had a miserable second half. Even with Thursday's effort, he has a mediocre .259/.318/.399 slash line with 35 RBI. Rotoworld.com

    Giancarlo Stanton went 3-for-4 with a walk and an RBI single as the Marlins eked out a one-run victory over the D'Backs on Thursday.

    Advice: Stanton had been held hitless over his last two games prior to Thursday. Despite reaching base four times in five plate appearances, the Marlins weren't able to bring Stanton around to score, and he was only able to knock in one run with a single in the third inning to cut the Marlins' deficit to 3-2. Stanton, thanks to a torrid August, has a .292/.395/.563 slash line with 31 home runs, 83 RBI, and 10 stolen bases. Rotoworld.com

  • Myers (wrist) could return as soon as Tuesday
    Rays manager Joe Maddon said Thursday that Wil Myers (wrist) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as the August 19-21 series versus the Tigers.

    Advice: Myers is batting .444/.583/.778 with one home run in his first three rehab games with Triple-A Durham, showing no rust in spite of a nearly three-month long absence. The reigning American League Rookie of the Year winner was hitting just .227/.313/.354 over 53 games prior to breaking his wrist, but he's worth a roster stash if someone in your league dropped him.

    Advice: Swisher was examined by Dr. Rick Parker on Monday, but the Indians have yet to release the resulted from that visits (which probably isn't a good sign).

The outfielder has taken well to the American League since being dealt to the Astros, batting .333/.341/.452 in 11 games.

    Nick Swisher will receive additional opinions on his ailing right knee before a decision is made on his status.

    Advice: Swisher, who has had knee issues all season, was examined by Dr. Rick Parker on Monday, but the Indians want to gather more information and seek additional opinions before announcing what they'll do.

"With the ballclub's help and urging, he's going to get another opinion and we're trying to align that right now.

  • Stanton's homers power Marlins past Cards
    Giancarlo Stanton homered twice and walked Monday to lead the Marlins past the Cardinals 6-5.

    Advice: Stanton would have had four homers the last two days if not for a terrific catch from Jay Bruce yesterday. As is, he's up to 31 for the season, tying him with Jose Abreu and Nelson Cruz for the major league lead. It seems like he's pretty much wrapped up the NL home run title, as long as he stays healthy; Anthony Rizzo is six back at 25, and no one else has more than 22. Rotoworld.com

  • Alex Rios (ankle) could play on Tuesday
    Alex Rios could return to the lineup as soon as Tuesday after an MRI on his right ankle showed no significant damage.

    Jose Bautista was the hero in Sunday's marathon 6-5 victory over the Tigers, delivering a walkoff RBI single in the 19th inning to bring an end to the madness.

    Advice: Bautista had struggled throughout the day until that point, as he finished the day 1-for-8 plus a pair of walks. The Jays loaded the bases with nobody out against Rick Porcello to begin the 19th inning, and Bautista responded with a deep fly to right field that easily cleared the drawn-in outfield.

    Advice: Rios was making his first start since Wednesday, but he lasted not even four innings before departing. He'll be reevaluated on Monday. The dynamic outfielder cleared revocable waivers last week. This lingering ankle injury obviously won't help his trade value. Rotoworld.com
