  • Issued release
    Peterson was released by the Diamondbacks on Monday, per MLB's transaction log.

  • Maikel Garcia goes deep in loss to Blue Jays
    Maikel Garcia hit a two-run homer on Monday in the Royals’ loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Garcia has cooled off considerably after coming out of the gate on fire to open the regular season, but he managed to take Blue Jays lefty Yusei Kikuchi deep in the sixth inning for his first round-tripper since April 3. The 24-year-old infielder is batting .178 (16-for-90) with 10 runs scored, four homers, 15 RBI and four steals through 22 contests. Rotoworld 29 minutes ago
  • Steals base in loss
    De La Cruz went 0-for-3 with a stolen base in Monday's 7-0 loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: De La Cruz stole his MLB-leading 11th bag, and the Reds lead the league with 39 steals in 22 games. Other than De La Cruz's steal, nothing much happened for Cincinnati's offense, which managed just two hits and a walk against Philadelphia pitching. 40 minutes ago
  • Matthew Batten recalled from El Paso

  • Padres place Manny Machado on paternity list
    Padres placed Manny Machado on the paternity list.

    Advice: Machado will be away from the team for one-to-three days while dealing with something more important than baseball. Matthew Batten was recalled from Triple-A El Paso to take Machado’s place on the active roster. Rotoworld Today, 3:23 pm
  • Heads to bench Monday
    Wade is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Rockies.

    Advice: The lefty-hitting Wade will give way to the righty-hitting Eguy Rosario at third base while southpaw Austin Gomber takes the hill for Colorado. Wade had started in three of the previous four games and continues to see the majority of the time at the hot corner while Manny Machado (paternity) remains limited to designated hitter duties following his offseason elbow surgery.

  • Making improvements
    Burger (intercostal) will be evaluated soon to determine whether he can begin hitting, Christina De Nicola of reports.

    Advice: It's been a week since Burger landed on the injured list with a left intercostal strain, and the infielder is feeling better. He would likely need to start with some low-impact hitting drills initially before progressing to batting practice and eventually rehab games. It's still too early to determine a potential timetable for Burger's return. Today, 2:54 pm
