  • Solarte (oblique) set for rehab assignment
    Yangervis Solarte (oblique) is set to begin a rehab assignment Thursday with Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Solarte has been on the disabled list for five weeks with a right oblique strain, so he might remain in the minors through the weekend to get his timing right at the plate. Unless the Padres want to showcase him for a possible trade ahead of Monday's deadline. The 30-year-old infielder was batting .268/.349/.425 with 10 home runs and 40 RBI through 71 games this season for San Diego. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:15 am

  • Wilmer Flores goes deep in loss to Padres
    Wilmer Flores crushed his 11th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Padres on Wednesday.

    Advice: His solo shot pulled the Mets to within three runs at 6-3 in the eighth inning, but that would be the extent of their offense in the ballgame. Flores finished the night 1-for-3 plus a walk and is now slashing .283/.316/.489 with 11 long balls and 30 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:16 pm
  • Romine goes 2-for-2 with a run scored
    Andrew Romine went 2-for-2 and scored a run as his team got blown out by the Royals on Wednesday.

    Advice: He didn't start the game but came on to pinch-hit for Miguel Cabrera in the seventh inning with the score already 13-1. He reached on an infield single in that at-bat and later scored on a double-play ball hit by Alex Avila. Romine singled again in the ninth inning but was left stranded. The utility infielder has gotten quite a bit of playing time for a backup, slashing .228/.293/.355 with four home runs, 18 RBI and 33 runs in 217 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:56 pm

  • Walker (hamstring) to come back this weekend
    Neil Walker (hamstring) is expected to rejoin the Mets this weekend.

    Advice: Walker is currently out on a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Las Vegas. The Mets will be taking on the Mariners for a three-game set this coming weekend and so long as Walker is able to avoid a setback over the next two days, he should be good to go for that series. A partial tear of his left hamstring has kept him on the shelf since mid-June. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:14 pm

  • Adam Frazier hits RBI double in loss to SFG
    Adam Frazier went 2-for-3 with an RBI double in Wednesday's loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Frazier notched an RBI double off Jeff Samardzija in the second inning. The would not score again in the contest and that double was the team's lone extra-base hit on the afternoon. For the season as a whole, Frazier is slashing .273/.347/.375 with three homers and 31 RBI across 264 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:34 pm
  • Dilson Herrera undergoes shoulder surgery
    Dilson Herrera underwent surgery to remove bone spurs from his right shoulder.

    Advice: That'll be a wrap for his 2017 season. Herrera didn't make a single appearance in the majors this year and he registered an underwhelming .264/.312/.397 batting line over 68 games for Triple-A Louisville. The former top-100 prospect will try to get his career back on track in 2018. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:59 am

  • Eduardo Escobar drives in another run
    Eduardo Escobar finished 1-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's game in San Diego.

    Advice: While it isn't much, he has posted four RBI over the past six outings. That's newsworthy because he had managed just four RBI in a 23-game span from June 17-July 16. Slowly but surely he is coming alive at the plate again. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:54 am
  • Ryan Goins plates a pair of runs
    Ryan Goins smacked a two-RBI double Tuesday against the Athletics.

    Advice: Goins' two-bagger in the second inning plated Kendrys Morales and Ezequiel Carrera. The defense-first utility infielder continues to be one of the worst-hitting players in the majors, as he's now sporting a .596 OPS. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:34 pm

  • Kipnis (hamstring) nearing rehab assignment
    Indians manager Terry Francona said Jason Kipnis (hamstring) could begin a minor league rehab assignment this weekend.

    Advice: Kipnis ran the bases without issue on Tuesday and will probably add fielding practice to the docket on Wednesday. The second baseman has been on the disabled list since July 9 because of a right hamstring strain. He's due back around the first week of August. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:01 pm

  • Marlins place JT Riddle (biceps) on the DL
    Marlins placed SS J.T. Riddle on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to July 22, with biceps tendinitis.

    Advice: Riddle has been sidelined for nearly a week with this upper-arm discomfort and the Marlins finally decided to quit playing a man short. The hope is Riddle will be ready for activation when first eligible in early August. Mike Aviles has been promoted from Triple-A New Orleans to give Miami infield depth.

  • Angels call up INF Kaleb Cowart
    Angels recalled INF Kaleb Cowart from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Cowart, 25, was batting .311/.383/.482 batting line with 12 homers and 19 steals over 90 games this season in Triple-A. He could find himself with a share of second base duties and is worth watching in deeper fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:44 pm

  • Jose Pirela runs hit streak to 11 games
    Jose Pirela finished 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Monday's loss against the Mets.

    Advice: Pirela has hit safely in 11 consecutive outings, hitting .319 (15-for-47) with five doubles, a triple and five RBI during the impressive stretch. He has raised his average from .289 to .298 just since July 9. While he isn't your prototypical leadoff hitter, posting very little in the steals department, he is hitting for a nice average and a little pop. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:16 am

  • Asdrubal Cabrera picks up three hits
    Asdrubal Cabrera collected a pair of singles and a double with a walk and a run scored over four at-bats in Monday's win in San Diego.

    Advice: Cabrera has picked up the pace again, posting three multi-hit games over his past six outings to raise his average from .247 to .257 just since July 18. He handled himself with aplomb at the hot corner, as he continues to show his positional versatility, perhaps for prospective buyers at the trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:05 am
  • J.T. Riddle (shoulder) sitting out again
    J.T. Riddle (shoulder) remained out of the Marlins' lineup Monday.

    Advice: He's missed five straight games with tendinitis in his right shoulder. Miguel Rojas will handle shortstop again. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:01 pm

  • Angels calling up Kaleb Cowart
    The Angels are calling up infielder Kaleb Cowart from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: The Angels have yet to make an official announcement. Cowart has appeared in one game with the Angels this season and owns a .311/.383/.482 batting line with 12 homers and 19 steals over 90 games in Triple-A. It's unclear how the Angels intend to use him, but he's an option to play second base. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:07 pm

  • Dilson Herrera likely done for season
    Delino DeShields, the manager for the Reds' Triple-A affiliate, told Jason Linden of Red Leg Nation that Dilson Herrera (shoulder) is "probably done for the season."

    Advice: The Reds have yet to make an official announcement on his status. Acquired from the Mets in the Jay Bruce deal, Herrera has dealt with a shoulder issue dating back to spring training and owns an underwhelming .264/.312/.397 batting line over 68 games in Triple-A this year.

    Neil Walker (hamstring) went 1-for-4 with a single and a strikeout Sunday in his second minor league rehab game with Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Walker went 2-for-7 during his brief rehab stint and appears on track to be activated early this week. The veteran second baseman has been sidelined since mid-June with a partial tear of his left hamstring. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:28 am

  • Flores caps Mets comeback with walk-off homer
    Wilmer Flores hit a walk-off, solo home run in the ninth inning Saturday to complete the Mets' comeback in a 6-5 win over the Athletics.

    Advice: The Mets once trailed 5-0 in the game, but they battled against A's starter Sean Manaea to close the gap and got to the Athletics' bullpen late. That included Flores, who deposited a Simon Castro fastball into the left field seats to send the fans home happy. Flores finished 2-for-5 with a double and two runs scored in the game. The 25-year-old infielder doesn't have a permanent home but has been serviceable when called upon, batting .284/.312/.473 in 222 at-bats this year. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:23 pm
  • Asdrubal Cabrera making 1st start at 3B
    Asdrubal Cabrera is starting at third base Saturday against the Athletics.

    Advice: It will be his first career start at third base and only his second MLB appearance at the hot corner after playing part of one game there as a rookie in 2007. The Mets, who have already moved Cabrera once this season (and he wasn't happy about it), are transitioning Cabrera to third with second baseman Neil Walker expected to come back off the disabled list any day now. Surely the Mets are also hoping Cabrera's versatility will make him more appealing to teams at the trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:37 pm
  • J.T. Riddle (shoulder) absent again Saturday
    J.T. Riddle (shoulder) is out of the Marlins' lineup Saturday against the Reds.

    Advice: Riddle is out of the lineup for a third straight day, last appearing as a pinch-hitter in Wednesday's loss to Philadelphia. He's day-to-day with a shoulder injury. Miguel Rojas is filling in at shortstop and batting eighth Saturday against Reds right-hander Robert Stephenson. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:19 pm

  • Jose Pirela triples, doubles in four-hit game
    Jose Pirela finished 4-for-6 with triple, a double and three RBI on Friday.

    Advice: He also walked in the 11-inning victory. Pirela is batting .296 with 15 doubles and five homers in just 152 at-bats. Plate discipline is an issue, and he's miscast as a leadoff man for the Padres. Still, he's been the team's best hitter since his callup. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:12 am

  • Moncada drives in four runs vs. Royals
    Yoan Moncada drove in four runs in Friday’s extra-inning loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Get excited, White Sox fans and fantasy owners. Called up after this week’s Todd Frazier trade, Moncada plated a run with a ground out in the second inning before collecting his first hit with Chicago on a bases-clearing triple in the third. Talk about easy speed. Moncada’s penchant for the strikeout will likely cut into his batting average upside in the short-term, but he’s capable of producing across the board in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:05 pm
  • Dilson Herrera having shoulder examined
    Dilson Herrera will have his nagging right shoulder issue examined next week.

    Advice: Herrera has had a shoulder problem dating back to spring training, and more recently the Reds are getting worried that the injury could be serious. It seems to have affected him at the plate, as he's hit a disappointing .264/.312/.397 at Triple-A Louisville. We'll obviously find out more about Herrera's status after he's examined.

  • No right-handed BP yet for Solarte (oblique)
    Yangervis Solarte (oblique) has yet to resume taking batting practice from the right side of the plate.

    Advice: He's taken right-handed swings in the cage but has yet to progress to BP from that side. It's possible Solarte could begin a rehab assignment by swinging only left-handed. "I personally want to see him free of any kind of issues whatsoever before we start," Padres manager Andy Green said. "Hopefully he checks that box and we’re able to get him out sometime soon."

  • Indians showing interest in Asdrubal Cabrera
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Indians have expressed interest in Asdrubal Cabrera.

    Advice: It sounds like he could be more of a fallback option if they're not able to work out a trade for a marquee player. Cabrera, of course, began his career with the Indians and would offer them some versatility. The 31-year-old impending free agent has batted .250/.333/.398 with nine homers in 70 games this season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:58 am
  • Neil Walker (hamstring) expected back Monday
    Neil Walker (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled list Monday.

    Advice: Walker will begin a short rehab assignment with Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday. He'll return to his starting spot at second base, pushing Asdrubal Cabrera to third. Walker has been on the shelf since mid-June with a torn left hamstring. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:28 am

  • Asdrubal Cabrera taking balls at third base
    Asdrubal Cabrera has been taking ground balls at third base.

    Advice: A shortstop by trade, Cabera has been filling in for Neil Walker at second base. With Jose Reyes excelling at shortstop and Walker nearing a return from the disabled list, it looks like Cabrera could be headed to the hot corner. Manager Terry Collins also acknowledged that getting Cabrera reps at third base may make him more appealing to teams at the trade deadline. Cabrera has made one just one appearance at third base since debuting in 2007. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:49 pm
  • Wilmer Flores homers in Mets' comeback
    Wilmer Flores delivered a pinch-hit homer in the eighth inning Thursday as part of the Mets' 3-2 win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Flores' homer tied the game off Brett Cecil. The Mets went on to win it in the ninth when Jose Reyes was credited with a game-ending infield single after Trevor Rosenthal failed to cover first base. Flores was on the bench today for the sixth time in seven games since the second half started. The Mets prefer T.J. Rivera at third base at the moment. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:39 pm
  • Yoan Moncada goes 0-for-2 in debut
    Yoan Moncada went 0-for-2 with a walk in his White Sox debut Wednesday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Moncada hit sixth tonight. Ideally, he'll be much closer to the top of the order by season's end, but sixth seems appropriate for now. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:13 pm
  • Cabrera goes 3-for-5 with two runs scored Wed
    Asdrubal Cabrera went 3-for-5 and scored a pair of runs in Wednesday's win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: He singled three times and reached base another time on a key error by third baseman Jedd Gyorko that led to three unearned runs in the second inning. Cabrera has a .254 batting average with nine longballs and 29 RBI. He has scored 40 runs and stolen three bases. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:09 pm
  • Neil Walker (hamstring) set for rehab assign.
    Neil Walker (hamstring) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday.

    Advice: Walker has been on the shelf with a strained left hamstring since mid-June. He tested out the leg by running on Monday. Assuming he does not suffer a setback during the planned minor league rehab assignment, he could potentially return to action some time before the end of July. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:18 pm

  • Moncada batting sixth in White Sox debut
    White Sox recalled 2B Yoan Moncada from Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Moncada is starting at second base and batting sixth Wednesday in his White Sox debut against the Dodgers and right-hander Kenta Maeda. The 22-year-old Moncada, considered by many to be the No. 1 prospect in the sport, was slashing .282/.377/.447 with 12 home runs and 17 stolen bases in 80 games this season at the Triple-A level. He's immediately playable in most standard mixed fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:07 pm
  • Kendrick (hamstring) cleared for rehab games
    Howie Kendrick (hamstring) is scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment Thursday with Double-A Reading.

    Advice: And it sounds like he might only play a game or two in the minors before the Phillies activate him off the disabled list. Kendrick is one of the few attractive trade chips for the rebuilding Phils, and the deadline is under two weeks away. The versatile veteran was batting .349/.403/.476 with two homers and eight stolen bases in 33 games when he landed on the disabled list June 28 with a left hamstring strain.

  • White Sox calling up No. 1 prospect Moncada
    Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that the White Sox are calling up top prospect Yoan Moncada.

    Advice: Moncada will be in a White Sox uniform for Wednesday night's game against the Dodgers and he should get the start at third base. Chicago cleared that position Tuesday in a seven-player trade with the Yankees that included Todd Frazier. Moncada, the top-ranked minor league talent in baseball, was hitting .285/.381/.452 with 12 home runs and 17 stolen bases through 79 games this season at Triple-A Charlotte. He's capable of providing immediate value in standard mixed fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:15 pm
  • Kendrick (hamstring) nears rehab assignment
    Howie Kendrick (hamstring) could begin a rehab assignment by the end of this week.

    Advice: Kendrick has been cleared to resume all baseball activities after missing the last three weeks with a strained left hamstring. "I feel better," Kendrick said. "I’m not quite there yet, but I feel better." The Phillies would like to deal Kendrick prior to the trade deadline, so they figure to push him to make it back for a few games before the end of the month. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:33 am
