  • Simmons (thumb) takes BP and grounders
    Andrelton Simmons (thumb) took batting practice and fielded grounders on Tuesday.

    Advice: Simmons resumed baseball activities last week and is now progressing quickly toward a minor league rehab assignment. Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register suspects the shortstop could be ready in three weeks. He was given a 6-8 week timetable when he landed on the disabled list May 10 with a UCL tear in his left thumb. Today, 3:37 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Jose Reyes (suspension) set for rehab gms.
    Jose Reyes (suspension) will join Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday for a rehab assignment.

    Advice: Reyes has been getting into baseball shape for the last two weeks at the Rockies' spring training complex in Arizona and can begin playing in live games June 1, when his domestic violence suspension officially comes to an end. The veteran shortstop is expected to spend two weeks in the minor leagues. Beyond that, it's not exactly clear what the plan is. Today, 2:59 pm
  • Rangers may keep Jurickson Profar in majors
    According to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Rangers have discussed keeping Jurickson Profar around after Rougned Odor's suspension ends.

    Advice: Hanser Alberto would also remain on the active roster and the Rangers would go with a seven-man bullpen. Profar is 6-for-18 (.333) since his callup on Friday and he was slashing 284/.356/.426 with five homers and four steals in 189 plate appearances this season with Triple-A Round Rock. The former top prospect might have finally found some footing at the major league level, though it's still pretty loose. Today, 1:36 pm
  • Rojas (shoulder) takes swing off tee
    Miguel Rojas (shoulder) took 30 swings off a tee on Tuesday.

    Advice: Rojas left Monday's game against the Pirates with right shoulder irritation. He's going to try to play through the injury for now. Today, 12:37 pm

  • Marte (thumb) expected to return next Monday
    Ketel Marte (thumb) is expected to be activated from the disabled list next Monday.

    Advice: That's the first day he's eligible. Marte, who has been out since May 21 with a left thumb sprain, will begin a minor league rehab assignment on Tuesday. He's expected to play a total of five games through Saturday before rejoining the Mariners. The 22-year-old was batting .276/.307/.378 with five steals in 40 games prior to the injury. Today, 11:11 am
    15-Day DL
  • Desmond continues big May with homer Mon.
    Ian Desmond doubled and ripped a two-run homer in Monday's victory over the Indians.

    Advice: Desmond's two-run shot two batters into the game proved to be a hint at what was to come for the Rangers' offense, as they pounded out nine runs over the first four innings. The shortstop-turned-left-fielder-turned-center-fielder has been a beast in May, sporting a .345/.371/.527 batting line with three home runs, 18 RBI and six stolen bases. Yesterday, 6:07 pm

  • Santana headed to DL, Buxton coming up
    Twins placed INF/OF Danny Santana on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

    Advice: Santana injured his left hamstring during Monday's game and will require an extended absence. The Twins will call up Byron Buxton to take his place on the active roster. Yesterday, 4:03 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Mercer not in Monday's lineup
    Jordy Mercer is not in Monday's lineup against the Marlins.

    Advice: It's just a routine day off. Sean Rodriguez will start at shortstop and bat eighth. Yesterday, 2:16 pm
  • Bogaerts extends hitting streak to 23 games
    Xander Bogaerts went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a walk, and two RBI in Monday’s win over the Orioles.

    Advice: Bogaerts is now riding a 23-game hitting streak. He has multi-hit games in three straight and six out of his last nine. His .354 batting average is tops in the American League and he leads the majors with 75 hits. Yesterday, 1:49 pm
  • Flores (hamstring) goes 0-for-3 in return
    Wilmer Flores (hamstring) went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in his return from the disabled list Sunday.

    Advice: Flores started at third base in this one. He's also expected to see significant playing time at first base while Lucas Duda recovers from a serious back injury. Flores has some power (16 homers last year) and is worthy of attention in deeper mixed fantasy leagues while he is receiving regular at-bats for the Mets. Yesterday, 5:44 am

  • Correa wins it in the 13th with pinch-hit HR
    Carlos Correa hit a pinch-hit three-run shot in the top of the 13th inning as the Astros beat the Angels 8-6 on Sunday afternoon in Anaheim.

    Advice: Correa had been stuck in an offensive rut and was supposed to get a mental day of rest in the series finale at Angel Stadium, but Astros manager A.J. Hinch called for him to bat for Tony Kemp with two outs in the 13th after Tyler White and Marwin Gonzalez singled against Anaheim reliever Mike Morin. Correa did his thing, jacking a three-run, go-ahead shot to left-center. The star 21-year-old shortstop has 30 homers and 93 RBI through his first 149 major league games. (He also has 22 career steals). Sunday, 5:42 pm
  • Castro launches two-run home run to beat Rays
    Starlin Castro went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Castro's two-run homer off Jake Odorizzi in the seventh inning proved to be the only hit the Yankees managed on the afternoon. It would be enough to boost the team to a 2-1 win. For the season, Castro is slashing .253/.287/.425 with nine doubles, seven homers and 21 RBI over 186 at-bats. He is already halfway home to tying his career-high for homers. Sunday, 1:10 pm
  • Eugenio Suarez sitting out on Sunday
    Eugenio Suarez is not in the Reds' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's receiving a day off. Adam Duvall is getting a start at third base in Suarez's place, while Tyler Holt is handling left field. Zack Cozart is sitting out, as well, as Ivan De Jesus Jr. is at shortstop. Sunday, 9:52 am
  • J.J. Hardy (foot) has boot removed
    J.J. Hardy had the boot on his left foot removed and he will undergo a CT scan on Friday.

    Advice: A recent X-ray showed significant healing with Hardy's foot, but he still has some lingering soreness. Depending on what the CT scan shows, it sounds like Hardy could resume baseball activities soon. He's been out since May 2 with a left foot fracture. Sunday, 9:26 am
    15-Day DL
  • Cardinals intend to keep Aledmys Diaz at SS
    The Cardinals plan to keep Aledmys Diaz at shortstop after Jhonny Peralta's (thumb) return from the disabled list.

    Advice: The common thought had been that Diaz would move around to different infield positions after Peralta returns. But, while Diaz could play some second and third base, it sounds like the Cards intend to leave him at shortstop most days and move Peralta and Matt Carpenter around the diamond instead. Diaz has struggled defensively at shortstop this season but has been much better of late. "I feel like it’s going to create a fresh opportunity for us, but I also feel like given what you’re seeing out of Diaz at his age (25) you really need to see him develop at shortstop," general manager John Mozeliak said. "When you look at what he’s been able to do, seeing him hold that spot for the next five or six years is reasonable to think. We want to keep him developing and also figure out the right combination to win games. We need to have at least one player moving around. We need one of the veterans to say, ‘Hey, I’m willing.’" Sunday, 9:15 am
  • Elvis Andrus getting a day off Sunday
    Elvis Andrus is absent from the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a rare day off for Andrus. Hanser Alberto will handle shortstop. Sunday, 8:57 am
  • Jimmy Rollins sitting out on Sunday
    Jimmy Rollins is not in the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Rollins has been on the bench for two straight games and four out of the last seven contests. He's hitting only .231/.288/.343 for the season. Tyler Saladino is at shortstop. Sunday, 8:24 am
  • Cliff Pennington activated from disabled list
    Angels activated INF Cliff Pennington from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: He missed the minimum amount of time with a strained hamstring. Pennington will play pretty regularly until Andrelton Simmons (thumb) returns. Sunday, 5:14 am

  • Nunez picks up four hits in win
    Eduardo Nunez continued his dream season in Saturday’s 6-5 win over the Mariners, pounding out four hits, including his fifth homer of the year.

    Advice: Nunez is now hitting .333/.363/.510 in one of the more unexpected performances of the year. He’s bounced around from third base to shortstop to second base defensively, which has helped his playing time remain high. Although his .366 BABIP suggests that his batting average should drop, he has an outside chance to hit double-digit homers and steal 20-plus bases. No shortstop did that in 2015. Saturday, 10:43 pm
