Player Notes

  • Athletics activate Toro (hamstring) off injured list
    Athletics activated INF Abraham Toro off the 10-day injured list.

    Advice: Toro, 27, is back after missing a little under a month with his Grade 1 hamstring strain. He takes the place of Jacob Wilson, as Wilson was placed on the injured list with a hamstring strain of his own. Toro should see consistent playing time for Oakland, but there are probably better fantasy options available. Rotoworld 1 minute ago
  • Athletics place Jacob Wilson (hamstring) on IL
    Athletics placed INF Jacob Wilson on the 10-day injured list with a left hamstring strain.

    Advice: Wilson injured his hamstring during his MLB debut Friday, and he was unable to return to the lineup Saturday. The infielder will be able to return near the end of July, but that timetable should become more present in the coming days. In the corresponding transaction, Abraham Toro was activated off the injured list. Rotoworld 2 minutes ago
  • Taking seat Sunday
    Duvall is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

    Advice: The veteran outfielder went 0-for-8 with a strikeout and a run during Saturday's doubleheader and will sit after starting the previous 20 games. Ramon Laureano will start in right field Sunday in Duvall's stead. 4 minutes ago
  • Gets sixth start of season
    Haase will start at catcher and bat ninth in Sunday's game against the Twins.

    Advice: Haase has now started in just six of the Brewers' 19 games since he was called up from Triple-A Nashville on June 26. Though his playing time is expected to remain sparse while All-Star catcher William Contreras is healthy, Haase has made the most of his limited opportunities thus far, going 6-for-17 with a home run, a walk, five RBI and two runs through his first five games with Milwaukee. 18 minutes ago
  • On bench Sunday
    LeMahieu is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays.

    Advice: The veteran infielder has a .472 OPS through 39 games this season and is hitting .154 with one extra-base hit in 39 at-bats during July. According to Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News, manager Aaron Boone said "we'll see" when asked about the possibility of this being a multi-game absence for LeMahieu. 28 minutes ago
  • Clubs 11th homer in win
    Meyers went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's win over the Mariners.

    Advice: Meyers took Ryne Stanek deep for a two-run shot in the top of the seventh to put Houston on top 3-2, giving the outfielder his third home run in his last five games. Meyers has also hit safely in six of his last eight contests, tallying six RBI and seven runs over that span. However, he's still batting just .151 (8-for-53) in July with one multi-hit performance. 31 minutes ago
  • Slugs homer in win
    Diaz went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in Saturday's win over the Mariners.

    Advice: Diaz singled in his second at-bat and later added a solo homer in the eighth to extend Houston's lead to two runs. The long ball was Diaz's eighth of the season and his first since June 7 against the Angels. It also marked his sixth multi-hit performance this month, where he's now batting .306 (19-for-62) with 11 RBI and six runs scored. Additionally, Diaz has hit safely in six of his last seven games. 43 minutes ago
  • Swipes another bag
    Adell went 2-for-3 with a walk, a run and a stolen base in Saturday's loss to Oakland.

    Advice: Though the Angels have been beat soundly in two straight games coming out of the break, Adell has been a bright spot, going 3-for-6 with a pair of thefts and a pair of walks. While he's still hitting just .197 on the campaign, the outfielder has put together a five-game hitting streak during which he's gone an even .500 (7-for-14) with a homer, six RBI and four free passes. Though his batting average has been a drain in fantasy, Adell's provided some useful production with 15 long balls and 12 thefts overall. 46 minutes ago
  • Shifts to 60-day IL
    The Tigers transferred Carpenter (back) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Sunday.

    Advice: Carpenter has been on the shelf since May 29 with a lumbar spine stress fracture and didn't resume hitting and taking part in a running progression until the All-Star break, so the move to the 60-day IL won't affect his timeline for a return to Detroit. Though he'll be eligible for activation beginning later this week, Carpenter will first need to ramp up his baseball activities further, then head out on a multi-game minor-league rehab assignment before returning from the IL. The transaction freed up a spot on the 40-man roster for first baseman/outfielder Bligh Madris, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Toledo ahead of Sunday's game in Toronto. 49 minutes ago
