  • Hernandez (rib cage) moves rehab to Double-A
    Enrique Hernandez (rib cage) has moved his minor league rehab assignment to Double-A Tulsa.

    Advice: He was 3-for-8 with a double and two walks in two games with High-A Rancho Cucamonga. Hernandez has been on the disabled list since late June because of left rib cage inflammation. He should be ready for activation early next week. Today, 10:29 am
    15-Day DL
  • Stephen Drew lands on DL with vertigo
    Nationals placed INF Stephen Drew on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 24, with vertigo-like symptoms.

    Advice: Drew has been sick for over a week. It was initially diagnosed as a flu, but there is obviously something more going on. He'll try to get healthy and rejoin the Nationals when first eligible in early August. Today, 7:33 am

  • Tulo absent from Jays' lineup on Wednesday
    Troy Tulowitzki is getting the day off Wednesday.

    Advice: Darwin Barney will start at shortstop and bat eighth versus Padres right-hander Luis Perdomo. This is just a day of maintenance for Tulo, who's batting .317/.348/.500 with four homers and 17 RBI so far in July. Today, 7:29 am
  • Padres recall Alexi Amarista from Triple-A
    Padres recalled INF/OF Alexi Amarista from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Amarista will fill in for Yangervis Solarte, who was placed on the family leave list in a corresponding move. Amarista, 27, has hit .239/.299/.261 in 98 plate appearances this year at the major league level. Today, 7:10 am
  • Crawford hits two-run triple in win over Reds
    Brandon Crawford went 3-for-5 with a two-run triple and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Crawford raced around the bases for a two-run triple in the seventh inning. The three-bagger was his fifth of the season. He also hit a pair of singles in the contest. For the season, the 29-year-old shortstop is slashing .275/.344/.433 with nine homers and 63 RBI over 342 at-bats. He has been an integral cog in the Giants machine this season. Yesterday, 10:45 pm
  • Brad Miller notches RBI double in loss to LAD
    Brad Miller went 1-for-5 with an RBI double in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Miller hit a run-scoring double off Joe Blanton in the eighth inning. The Rays would ultimately bring home two runs in the frame, but wouldn't score again as they fell by a score of 3-2. For the season as a whole, Miller has quietly put together a nice campaign, slashing .244/.292/.457 with 15 homers, 37 RBI and four steals over 324 at-bats. Yesterday, 10:20 pm
  • Semien hits 21st homer in win over Rangers
    Marcus Semien went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

    Advice: Semien connected for a solo dinger off Rangers starter Nick Martinez in the fifth inning, his 21st big fly of the year. That's easily a personal best for the 25-year-old, who will also set a new high for RBI in a season this year. Overall, Semien is hitting .236/.303/.460 with 49 RBI, 49 runs scored and nine steals. Yesterday, 9:49 pm
  • Gonzalez homers twice in loss to Yankees
    Marwin Gonzalez hit two home runs in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Gonzalez was one of the only Astros hitters able to get anything done against CC Sabathia and company, taking Sabathia deep for a solo dinger in the first inning before tacking on a one-run shot in the eighth for good measure. The homers gave Gonzalez 10 on the year to go with 28 RBI and 40 runs scored. The 27-year-old is hitting .256/.295/.426 overall. Yesterday, 8:54 pm

  • Lindor's walk-off single completes comeback
    Francisco Lindor finished 3-for-5 including a game-winning, walk-off single as the Indians came back to beat the Nationals 7-6 on Tuesday.

    Advice: With the bases loaded and one out, Lindor hit an Oliver Perez pitch just past a drawn-in infield to give the Indians the victory. It capped a good night at the dish for the 22-year-old, who now has multiple hits in four of his last six games. Lindor has been one of the most productive all-around hitters in the league to this point, batting .307/.362/.460 with 12 homers, 50 RBI, 68 runs scored and 13 steals. Yesterday, 8:25 pm
  • Jose Reyes diagnosed with intercostal strain
    Jose Reyes has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 intercostal strain.

    Advice: Reyes went to a local hospital for tests after feeling a muscle tweak on his final swing of Tuesday afternoon's 3-2 loss to the Cardinals -- part of a traditional doubleheader at Citi Field. He did not play in the night game (a 3-1 win) and the Mets are expecting him to miss at least a couple of days. This could easily turn into a DL situation. Yesterday, 8:04 pm
  • Gyorko homers in both halves of DH again
    Jedd Gyorko homered in both halves of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets.

    Advice: He also homered in both halves of a doubleheader last Wednesday versus the Padres and he now has seven home runs in his last nine games. Gyorko probably isn't going to finish this season with an .800-plus OPS -- it's at .814 right now -- but he does have pretty good power and he's probably going to keep playing regularly for St. Louis. There's reason to grab him and start him in deeper mixed leagues. Yesterday, 7:57 pm

  • Nunez steals two more bases against Braves
    Eduardo Nunez went 1-for-3 with two stolen bases in a loss to the Braves on Tuesday.

    Advice: Nunez' overall numbers have declined since his All-Star first half, but the 29-year-old is still contributing with his legs. Nunez now has 26 steals on the year, most in the American League. He's hitting .298/.326/.445 in 89 games. Yesterday, 7:52 pm
  • Bregman at DH in second major league game
    Alex Bregman is at DH and batting sixth Tuesday in his second major league game.

    Advice: Bregman finished 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Monday in his MLB debut, but he came a few feet short of a grand slam in the sixth inning and looked sharp defensively at third base. He could play left field Wednesday. Yesterday, 1:22 pm
  • Royals call up INF Raul Mondesi from AAA
    Royals recalled INF Raul Mondesi from Triple-A Omaha.

    Advice: In turn, the struggling Whit Merrifield has been sent down. Regarded as the Royals' top position prospect, Mondesi has missed a big chunk of the season after serving a 50-game PED suspension, but he has played well since his promotion to Triple-A earlier this month. His plate discipline is shaky, so we're not convinced he'll see immediate success in the majors, but the Royals are looking for a spark and his speed could come in handy in deeper fantasy leagues assuming he gets regular starts at second base. Mondesi, who turns 21 on Wednesday, made his major league debut in the World Series last year, but he has yet to appear in a regular season game. Yesterday, 11:23 am
  • Eugenio Suarez hits 17th homer
    Eugenio Suarez had a two-run homer and a double Monday against the Giants.

    Advice: It's disappointing that Suarez's OBP has been hanging right around .300 for much of the year, but he's up to 17 homers now. It's too bad those homers have come with just seven doubles and a 100/27 K/BB ratio in 345 at-bats. Monday, 10:53 pm
  • Tyler Saladino delivers game-winner
    Tyler Saladino went 2-for-4 with a game-winning single in the bottom of the ninth as the White Sox edged the Cubs 5-4 on Monday.

    Advice: Saladino is outhitting Brett Lawrie over the last month and is the superior defensive second baseman, so maybe it's time to give him a crack at the starting job. He wouldn't do much for fantasy leaguers if it happens, but as far as the White Sox are concerned, he just needs to be a better player than Lawrie. Right now, Saladino has a .722 OPS in 130 AB, while Lawrie is at .723 in 351 AB. Monday, 9:20 pm
  • Javier Baez goes 3-for-4, homers
    Javier Baez finished 3-for-4 with a homer and a doubles Monday against the White Sox.

    Advice: Most of Baez's success this year has come off lefties, so it was nice to see him collect extra-base hits against a pair of righties in this one. It could help him earn some more playing time. Monday, 9:10 pm
    Player Note
    Javier Báez ChC - 2B,3B,SS
  • Addison Russell starts, goes 0-for-3
    Addison Russell went 0-for-3 with a walk Monday against the White Sox.

    Advice: Russell started at shortstop tonight after leaving Sunday's game with a bruised left heel. Monday, 9:09 pm
  • Andres Blanco to have surgery on finger
    Andres Blanco will undergo surgery Wednesday to repair a fractured left index finger.

    Advice: Blanco suffered the injury on a slide into third base on Sunday. Phillies manager Pete Mackanin is optimistic that he could be back in six weeks. Monday, 1:21 pm
    Player Note
    Andrés Blanco Phi - 1B,2B,3B,SS
    15-Day DL
  • Phillies recall Taylor Featherston from AAA
    Phillies recalled INF Taylor Featherston from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Featherston will take over for Andres Blanco, who landed on the 15-day disabled list Monday with a fractured index finger. Featherston, 26, was batting .264/.320/.446 with 12 home runs and 32 RBI through 87 games this season at the Triple-A level. Monday, 11:35 am
