  • Nick Hundley puts together big night
    Nick Hundley finished 3-for-4 with a two-run home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Saturday's game against the Braves.

    Advice: Hundley has answered the bell lately when given the opportunity to play, going 9-for-25 (.360) with a double, home run and four RBI over the past nine games, raising his average from .207 to .253 just since May 6. Still, he doesn't play frequently enough to warrant fantasy consideration outside of deeper NL-only leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:39 am
  • Tyler Flowers showing no signs of cooling off
    Tyler Flowers finished 2-for-4 in Saturday's game at San Francisco.

    Advice: Flowers, a career .238 hitter, has collected two hits in back-to-back games and four of his past five outings. He is cruising along with a slash line of .357/.453/.462. The backstop has never really come close to this type of production before, so fantasy owners would be wise to consider him as a sell-high candidate. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:18 am
  • Travis d'Arnaud impressive in Saturday's loss
    Travis d'Arnaud finished 3-for-5 with a double, home run and two RBI in Saturday's extra-innings loss at Pittsburgh.

    Advice: It wasn't all great for d'Arnaud as he struck out twice. The hits were d'Arnaud's first since coming off the 10-day disabled list. It appears his wrist is back to 100 percent and he can be trusted again in NL-only fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:21 pm
  • Miguel Montero makes most of opportunity
    Miguel Montero had one of the team's three hits in Saturday's game at L.A. Dodgers.

    Advice: It wasn't all good, as he did strike out once. When Willson Contreras needs a rest the Cubs do not lose anything by using the veteran Montero behind the dish. He has hit safely in each of his past three appearances and is slashing .328/.362/.500 across 64 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:56 pm
  • Day off does Kyle Schwarber no good
    Kyle Schwarber went hitless over three at-bats with a walk and a strikeout Saturday at L.A. Dodgers.

    Advice: Schwarber, who became a fan favorite during the World Series last season for gutting it out despite not being 100 percent, is losing some of his fans with a dismal .178/.298/.350 slash line. He hasn't had his average over .200 since the final day of April when he was batting .204. Schwarber has collected just 10 hits over 70 at-bats (.143) during an awful May. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:48 pm
  • Bandy comes through with three-run double
    Jett Bandy delivered a three-run double in a win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

    Advice: It was a scoreless game in the bottom of the fourth inning when Bandy stepped to the plate with the sacks jacked and two outs. Diamondbacks starter Zack Greinke grooved a 3-2 fastball, and Bandy lined it over left fielder Yasmany Tomas' head to clear the bases. It was Bandy's only hit in three at-bats. The Brewers entered spring with a competition at catcher, but the 27-year-old has grabbed hold of the spot and never let go, batting .280/.345/.520 with six homers and 18 RBI in 30 games to date. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:03 pm
  • Slumping Posey getting the night off Saturday
    Buster Posey is not in the Giants' lineup Saturday against the Braves.

    Advice: Posey is mired in a 3-for-23 slump so manager Bruce Bochy will give him a night to clear his head. Nick Hundley is behind the plate and batting seventh Saturday against Braves right-hander Mike Foltynewicz. Despite his recent struggles, Posey still carries the NL's fifth-highest batting average at .338. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:17 pm
  • Contreras getting the night off Saturday
    Willson Contreras is not in the Cubs' lineup Saturday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: He's out of the lineup for the second time in three days. Miguel Montero will catch for right-hander John Lackey on Saturday. Contreras hasn't hit for a high average this year (just .235 in 132 at-bats) but ranks fourth among catchers with 22 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:41 pm
  • Gary Sanchez scores twice in win on Saturday
    Gary Sanchez drew a pair of walks and scored twice as the Yankees topped the Athletics on Saturday afternoon in New York.

    Advice: Sanchez walked in the first inning and scored the game's first run on a sacrifice fly by Starlin Castro. He then walked and rode home on Matt Holliday's two-run blast in the sixth inning. Sanchez finished the day 0-for-2 and is now hitting .256/.358/.415 with four homers and 11 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:30 pm
  • Josh Phegley goes deep in loss to Yankees
    Josh Phegley clubbed his second home run of the season in a losing effort against the Yankees on Saturday afternoon.

    Advice: His solo shot off of C.C. Sabathia in the seventh inning pulled the A's to within a run at 3-2, but that would be as close as they would get. Phegley finished the afternoon 2-for-4 and is now hitting .250/.263/.429 with a pair of homers and six RBI in his limited action this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:26 pm
  • Astros activate Brian McCann from 7-day DL
    Astros activated C Brian McCann from the 7-day disabled list.

    Advice: McCann passed his concussion test earlier this week and claimed that he didn't need a minor league rehab assignment. He's expected to be in the starting lineup on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:57 am
  • Russell Martin starts at third base Saturday
    Russell Martin is starting at third base on Saturday against Yu Darvish and the Rangers.

    Advice: As manager John Gibbons had indicated, both Josh Donaldson and Troy Tulowitzki are out of the lineup after returning on Friday. Martin's versatility allows him to play the infield and keep his bat in the lineup while not behind the plate. He's batting sixth on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:39 am
  • Jonathan Lucroy not in Rangers lineup
    Jonathan Lucroy is not in the Rangers starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: It's just a routine day of rest for the hard-hitting backstop. Robinson Chirinos is starting in his place and batting cleanup. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:24 am
  • Alex Avila blasts sixth homer in loss Friday
    Alex Avila blasted his sixth home run of the season as the Tigers fell to the White Sox on Friday night in Chicago.

    Advice: Avila's solo shot off of Mike Pelfrey in the fifth inning pulled the Tigers to within a run at 3-2, but that would be as close as they would get. Avila has been a monster at the plate this season, slashing .354/.475/.659 with six homers and 20 RBI. With James McCann on the disabled list, he'll continue to see regular run behind the plate. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:48 pm
  • Tyler Flowers collects two more hits
    Tyler Flowers finished 2-for-4 with a run scored in Friday's 2-0 win in San Francisco.

    Advice: Flowers is humming along with a slash line of .351/.465/.447. He is a career .238 hitter so this type of sustained production after nearly two full months is quite the surprise. He continues to split the receiver duties with fellow veteran Kurt Suzuki, so he is still useful only as a No. 2 fantasy option in NL-only play. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:28 pm
  • Maldonado slugs two-run homer vs. Marlins
    Martin Maldonado went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Friday’s loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: Maldonado took Dan Straily deep in the sixth inning. He later hurt his thumb tagging Giancarlo Stanton at home plate in the eighth inning, though he remained in the game. The 30-year-old has handled the bulk of the catching duties with the Angels this season while batting .271/.333/.388 with three home runs and 12 RBI through 42 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:06 pm
  • Astros option Juan Centeno back to Triple-A
    Astros optioned C Juan Centeno to Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: All the 27-year-old did was homer in each of his first two starts for the Astros, but with Brian McCann set to return from the disabled list there was no need to carry a third catcher. He'll continue to provide depth at Triple-A. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:23 pm

  • Vogt socks two-run homer vs. Yankees
    Stephen Vogt socked a two-run homer Friday against the Yankees.

    Advice: His ninth-inning blast off Jonathan Holder provided the A’s with some valuable late insurance. Vogt has been a disappointment on the whole this season, but he has perked up at the plate over the past few days. He’s batting .304 (7-for-23) with two homers, a double, six RBI, and six walks over his last seven games Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:59 pm
  • Manny Pina (elbow) available off bench
    Manny Pina (elbow) is available off the Brewers' bench Friday.

    Advice: Pina exited Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks after being hit on the left elbow by a pitch, but he escaped with a bruise and is feeling much better. He'll probably get a start on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:53 pm

  • Kyle Schwarber absent from Friday's lineup
    Kyle Schwarber is not in the Cubs' lineup Friday.

    Advice: The struggling outfield will take a seat against red-hot Dodgers southpaw Alex Wood. Ben Zobrist is in left field and in the leadoff spot and Javy Baez is at second base. The Cubs also have Addison Russell down in the No. 8 spot. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:18 pm
  • Gary Sanchez not starting Friday's game
    Gary Sanchez is not in the Yankees' lineup Friday.

    Advice: It looks to be a regular day of rest. Austin Romine will do the catching. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:42 pm
  • Wilson Ramos (knee) to catch live BP
    Wilson Ramos (knee) will catch live batting practice on Monday and Thursday of next week at the Rays' spring training complex.

    Advice: Ramos had said that he was hoping to begin a rehab assignment before the end of May, but clearly that's not going to happen. His workouts are going well, though, so him being cleared for game action doesn't appear to be far off. It's possible he could be ready for designated hitter duty with the Rays sometime next month.

  • Tom Murphy (wrist) nearing rehab assignment
    Tom Murphy (wrist) could begin a rehab assignment as soon as next week.

    Advice: Murphy's recovery from a hairline fracture in his right forearm and wrist has come along more slowly than expected, but obviously he's made nice progress of late. Considering how long he's been sidelined, Murphy's rehab assignment figures to be a pretty lengthy one. Still, he's a guy worth stashing now if he was dropped in your league.

  • James McCann (hand) placed on 10-day DL
    Tigers placed C James McCann on the 10-day disabled list with a left hand laceration.

    Advice: McCann needed five stitches in his left hand after getting hit by a pitch Thursday against Houston. His roster spot will be absorbed by John Hicks. Alex Avila will see most of the action behind the plate during McCann's absence with Hicks making an appearance here and there. McCann shouldn't miss much longer than the 10 minimum 10 days.

  • James McCann exits with left hand laceration
    James McCann left Thursday's game against the Astros with a left hand laceration.

    Advice: McCann's hand was bleeding badly after he got hit by a pitch from Mike Fiers in the fourth inning. Alex Avila pinch-ran for him and also replaced McCann behind the plate. He went 0-for-1 before exiting. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:35 pm

  • Manny Pina leaves with left elbow injury
    Manny Pina left Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks with a left elbow contusion.

    Advice: He left immediately after getting drilled by a 94 mph fastball from Robbie Ray. Jett Bandy pinch-ran for Pina and is now playing behind the plate. We'll update Pina's status as soon as we know more. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:00 pm

  • Evan Gattis takes a seat on Thursday night
    Evan Gattis is not in the Astros' lineup Thursday against the Tigers.

    Advice: Gattis could use a rest after starting four of the last five games behind the plate. Juan Centeno will catch for Mike Fiers in Thursday's series finale. Gattis will go back to splitting catching duties with Brian McCann (concussion) when he returns from the disabled list this weekend. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:43 pm
  • Kyle Schwarber fans four times
    Kyle Schwarber struck out all four times up before being removed for defense Thursday against the Giants.

    Advice: That's 55 strikeouts in 42 games for Schwarber. He's still drawing walks and hitting solo homers once per week, but he's one of the big reasons the Cubs have disappointed thus far. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:30 pm
  • Brian McCann (concussion) claims to be 100%
    Brian McCann (concussion) expects to be activated from the disabled list Saturday against the Orioles.

    Advice: McCann claims to be 100 percent after passing a concussion test on Wednesday and won't need a rehab assignment. Evan Gattis and Juan Centeno have been filling in for him behind the plate. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:20 pm
  • Mets option Plawecki to make room for Cabrera
    Mets optioned C Kevin Plawecki to Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: The Mets needed to make room for Asdrubal Cabrera, who was activated from the disabled list ahead of Thursday's game against the Padres. Plawecki spent a month backing up Rene Rivera but is no longer needed with Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) back in the fold. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:18 pm

  • Kelly homers
    Cardinals catching prospect Carson Kelly went 1-for-3 with a homer on Wednesday for Triple-A Memphis.

    Advice: It was the sixth homer of his 2017 season, and he's now slugging .529 on the season. Kelly has been excellent with the bat this spring, and he's arguably the best defensive backstop in minor-league baseball. He's one of the best trade chips on the market, which is good, because with Yadier Molina's contract, he's not relevant to the Cardinals. If you have him on your dynasty team, hope that a trade comes soon. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:35 am

  • Yadier Molina extends hitting streak
    Yadier Molina hit a two-run homer Wednesday against the Dodgers to extend his hitting streak to 13 games.

    Advice: Most hitting streaks like this come with averages in the .350-.400 range, but Molina is hitting just .263 during his; he's collected exactly one hit in 11 of the 13 games and, since he hasn't drawn a walk in any of them, he's always getting four or five at-bats. At least he does have three homers during the streak; he had just one in his first 25 games. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:06 pm
  • Mets activate Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) from DL
    Mets activated C Travis d'Arnaud from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: A bone bruise on his right wrist sidelined d'Arnaud in early May. With his activation, he will be available to pinch-hit during Wednesday's game against the Padres -- and is expected to start on Thursday. Prior to going down injured, the backstop was hitting .203/.288/.475 with four homers and 16 RBI across 22 games played. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:51 pm
  • Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) to be activated Wed.
    Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) is expected to be activated from the disabled list prior to Wednesday's game against the Padres.

    Advice: While Rene Rivera will be drawing the start at catcher on Wednesday, d'Arnaud's imminent activation would make him available as a pinch-hitting option. He is expected to be in the starting lineup for Thursday's series finale vs. the Padres. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:26 pm
  • Juan Centeno goes deep on Tuesday
    Juan Centeno hit a solo homer and reached base three times Tuesday versus the Tigers.

    Advice: The 27-year-old journeyman was making his first start in the majors this season, as he came up when Brian McCann went on the 7-day concussion DL. Even after the nice night, Centeno might be lucky to get one more start before McCann returns. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:34 pm

  • Kyle Schwarber smashes monster homer
    Kyle Schwarber crushed a mammoth solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Giants.

    Advice: Schwarber's blast off of Johnny Cueto in the first inning cleared the bleachers in right field and was estimated at a distance of 470 feet. It was the only hit on the night for Schwarber, who struck out a couple times. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:33 pm
  • McCann (concussion) to resume hitting Wed.
    Brian McCann (concussion) expects to resume hitting Wednesday.

    Advice: He could also resume catching workouts on Wednesday or Thursday and might be ready to rejoin the Astros over the weekend. McCann was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list April 21, retroactive to May 20, after taking a hard foul tip off his mask in New York. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:17 pm
  • Gary Sanchez not in lineup Tuesday
    Gary Sanchez is out of the Yankees' lineup Tuesday against the Royals.

    Advice: It sounds like a routine day off for the young backstop. Austin Romine will start behind the dish and catch left-hander Jordan Montgomery. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:26 pm
  • D'Arnaud hitless in latest rehab game
    Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) went 0-for-3 and caught six innings Monday in his latest minor league rehab game with Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: D'Arnaud is now 5-for-17 (.294) during his minor league rehab assignment while working his back from a bone bruise in his wrist. He's set to catch Steven Matz (elbow) on Tuesday, but he could be cleared to rejoin the Mets after that. The question is how the playing time will shake out with Rene Rivera, who has been surprisingly productive at the plate. D'Arnaud was batting .203/.288/.475 with four home runs an 16 RBI over 22 games prior to the injury. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:37 am
  • Schwarber not in Monday's lineup vs. Giants
    Kyle Schwarber is not in Monday's lineup against the Giants.

    Advice: He'll take a seat against left-hander Ty Blach. Rookie Ian Happ is also out of the lineup. Ben Zobrist will start in left field and bat leadoff while Albert Almora, Jr. gets a start in center. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:14 pm
  • D'Arnaud (wrist) has three hits in rehab game
    Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) went 3-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI, and a run scored Sunday in a rehab game with Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: D'Arnaud, who is working back from a bone bruise in his wrist, is now 5-for-14 (.357) during his minor league rehab assignment. The expectation is that he will stick around to catch Steven Matz (elbow) on Tuesday, but he's not far off. Rene Rivera has been red-hot during his absence, so it will be interesting to see how Terry Collins balances the playing time moving forward. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:42 am
  • Jonathan Lucroy plates two in win on Sunday
    Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-5 with a double and two RBI as the Rangers topped the Tigers on Sunday night in Detroit.

    Advice: Lucroy got the Rangers on the board with an RBI single in the first inning, then he capped off the scoring with an RBI double in the ninth. His bat has started to heat up after his move to the cleanup spot in the lineup, and he's now hitting .277/.320/.412 with three long balls and 12 RBI. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:51 pm
  • Kyle Schwarber hitting second Sunday
    Kyle Schwarber is batting second for the Cubs on Sunday versus the Brewers.

    Advice: Well, it's a move out of the leadoff spot but he obviously didn't venture far. Ben Zobrist will hit leadoff while the struggling Schwarber handles the No. 2 hole. Ian Happ is getting another start in center field and is batting fifth. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:54 am
  • Buster Posey getting a day off Sunday
    Buster Posey is not in the Giants' lineup Sunday.

  • Juan Centeno called up from Triple-A
    Astros purchased the contract of C Juan Centeno from Triple-A Fresno.

  • Brian McCann placed on 7-day concussion DL
    Astros placed C Brian McCann on the 7-day concussion disabled list, retroactive to May 20.

    Advice: Something must have happened with McCann on Friday, evidently. As is the case with any concussion issue, it's tough to predict how much time McCann will miss. Evan Gattis will handle the bulk of the catching duties in the meantime, and Juan Centeno has been called up. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:40 am
  • Gary Sanchez sore following foul tip
    Gary Sanchez has a bruised jaw after taking a foul tip on Saturday.

    Advice: Sanchez remained in the game and should be fine, although it's possible he could sit out Sunday as a precaution given that he's dealt with a stiff neck recently, as well. He's hitting .303/.395/.500 with four homers this season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:57 am
  • Travis d'Arnaud to catch nine on Sunday
    Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) made a pinch-hitting appearance for Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday and will catch nine innings on Sunday.

    Advice: D'Arnaud is expected to need a few days before he is able to return, and Sunday's stint behind the dish will go a long way in determining if he needs extra time or not. Wait to see him officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks before plugging him back into the active fantasy lineup. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:54 pm
  • Alex Avila pushes average to .382
    Alex Avila finished 3-for-3 with a double, a solo home run, a walk, two runs scored and three RBI in Saturday's win against the Rangers.

    Advice: Avila continues to scorch at the plate, driving in nine runs across 10 games in the month of May. He continues to hit for high average and he is slashing an amazing .382/.488/.706 overall on the season. Avila has a .243 career average and .751 OPS, so this type of production isn't likely to be sustainable. Avila is a great sell-high candidate in most fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:28 pm
  • Jonathan Lucroy reaches the seats
    Jonathan Lucroy belted a solo home run in four trips to the plate Saturday in Detroit.

    Advice: Lucroy has hit safely in a season-high eight straight games, as he continues to tear it up in the month of May. He is hitting a robust .353 (18-for-51) with four doubles, two homers, six RBI and a .926 OPS while striking out just two times. Lucroy also has an RBI in four consecutive outings. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:08 pm
  • Flowers goes 2-for-4 with a home run Saturday
    Tyler Flowers went 2-for-4 and hit a solo home run against the Nationals on Saturday.

    Advice: The dinger came off reliever Matt Albers in the eighth inning to pad the Braves' lead to three runs. The 31-year-old Flowers has a .237 career batting average in 543 games but has upped his game this year. He is now batting .349/.465/.458 with two homers and 14 RBI in 101 at-bats. He splits the Braves' catching duties with veteran Kurt Suzuki. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:44 pm
  • Sanchez drills homer vs Rays on Saturday
    Gary Sanchez went 2-for-4 and ripped a solo home run in Saturday's loss to the Rays.

    Advice: The homer came off Rays' starter Matt Andriese in the fifth inning. He missed almost a month of action with a strained biceps but he hasn't let the injury affect his production since returning. He is batting .303/.395/.500 with four home runs and 11 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:03 pm
  • Blue Jays activate (shoulder) Russell Martin
    Blue Jays activated C Russell Martin from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: Michael Ohlman was designated for assignment in the corresponding move. Martin missed a little over a week with left shoulder irritation. He did not require a minor league rehab assignment. The four-time All-Star has had a difficult year offensively, batting just .197 with 28 strikeouts in 76 at-bats. He'll catch for Mike Bolsinger Saturday against Baltimore. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:44 pm
  • Jett Bandy plates two runs to lead Brewers
    Jett Bandy went 2-for-3 and drove home a pair of runs on Friday as the Brewers dispatched of the Cubs 6-3 in their series opener at Wrigley Field.

    Advice: Bandy also walked twice in the ballgame. He got the scoring started in the first inning with a two-run single off of Cubs' starter Eddie Butler. Bandy walked an eventually scored the go-ahead run for the Brewers in the fifth inning. With his two-hit effort, Bandy is now hitting an impressive .289/.359/.530 with five homers and 14 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:11 pm
  • Willson Contreras plates two in loss Friday
    Willson Contreras went 1-for-4 and drove home two runs as the Cubs fell to the Brewers on a rainy afternoon in Chicago on Friday.

    Advice: Contreras delivered a two-run single in the fourth inning that briefly gave the Cubs a 3-2 lead, unfortunately that would be the extent of their offense. He's now hitting .229/.295/.390 with four homers and 19 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:53 pm
  • Wilson Ramos (knee) 'very impressive' in BP
    Rays manager Kevin Cash said that Wilson Ramos (knee) had a "very impressive" round of batting practice Friday.

    Advice: The skipper noted that Ramos was hitting it where balls usually don't go at Tropicana Field. Ramos is hoping to be ready to begin a rehab assignment before the end of the month and could be ready to serve as a designated hitter for the Rays around the third week of June.

  • Ramos (knee) catching 'pens, taking BP
    Wilson Ramos (knee) has been catching bullpen sessions and will take batting practice again Friday.

    Advice: Ramos is coming along nicely as he works his way back from major knee surgery. The goal is for him to begin a rehab assignment toward the end of this month. He'll surely need the full 20 allotted days, perhaps putting him in line for activation in mid-to-late June if all goes well. Ramos is expected to serve as a designated hitter initially before being eased back into catching duties. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:53 am

  • Travis d'Arnaud goes 2-4 in rehab game
    Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) went 2-for-4 Thursday in his first rehab game for High-A St. Lucie.

    Advice: He also caught seven innings behind the plate. D'Arnaud landed on the DL with a bruised wrist earlier this month but should be back with the Mets sometime next week. Rene Rivera has done most of the catching during his absence. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:47 pm
  • Lucroy, Napoli not in TEX lineup on Thursday
    Jonathan Lucroy is out of the Rangers' starting lineup on Thursday against the Phillies.

    Advice: It looks to be a routine day of rest. Robinson Chirinos will start at catcher and bat cleanup Thursday afternoon against Philadelphia right-hander Nick Pivetta. Mike Napoli is also on the bench Thursday, with Ryan Rua filling in at first base. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:22 am
  • Schwarber getting day off Thursday vs. PIT
    Kyle Schwarber is out of the Cubs' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Reds.

    Advice: Ben Zobrist is batting leadoff and Ian Happ is handling left field. Schwarber hit a monstrous home run on Tuesday at Wrigley Field and he drove in two runs on Wednesday. He's getting it going again after another short slump but will grab some rest on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:41 am
