  • Bregman leaves game with hamstring issue
    Alex Bregman was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Phillies with discomfort in his right hamstring.

    Advice: Bregman tripled and scored in the top of the third inning before getting lifted. The young third baseman entered play Tuesday with a red-hot .356/.457/.627 batting line in 70 plate appearances since July 4. Rotoworld.com 44 minutes ago

  • Marlins add Mike Aviles to active roster
    Marlins purchased the contract of INF/OF Mike Aviles from Triple-A New Orleans.

    Advice: Aviles will give the Marlins infield depth while shortstop J.T. Riddle recovers from a biceps injury. The veteran utilityman went hitless in seven plate appearances earlier this season with Miami. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:43 pm

  • 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 Today, 12:44 pm
  • Sean Rodriguez belts first homer of season
    Sean Rodriguez connected for a pinch-hit two-run home run in the top of the fifth inning in Monday's game at Arizona.

    Advice: The veteran Rodriguez debuted in mid-July, as he needed time to recover from a severe shoulder injury suffered in a car accident during the offseason. The homer was just his second hit across 15 at-bats, but perhaps it will give the utility man a little confidence going forward. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:31 pm

  • Bregman goes 3-for-5 with HR in rout
    Alex Bregman finished 3-for-5 with a homer and three runs scored Monday against the Phillies.

    Advice: Bregman went back-to-back with Brian McCann in the top of the second inning, prior to a two-hour rain delay, and he kept the line moving as the Astros continued to pour it on late-night at Citizens Bank Park. Bregman, 23, is off to a very promising start in the second half and quickly becoming another high-production piece for the lethal Houston offense. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:00 pm

  • Chapman homers for third straight game
    Matt Chapman homered for the third straight game Monday in the Athletics' loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Chapman went deep for a solo shot in the top of the fifth inning against Toronto starter Francisco Liriano, continuing his power surge that began just after the All-Star break. Oakland's offense managed only one other hit in Monday's defeat at Rogers Centre. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:04 pm
  • Erick Aybar diagnosed with fractured foot
    Erick Aybar could be done for the season after being diagnosed with a fractured left foot.

    Advice: The initial diagnosis was a contusion, but further testing revealed the bad news. It's possible Aybar could make it back as soon as mid-September, but his year might be over. Allen Cordoba and Dusty Coleman will handle shortstop for the Padres moving forward. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:45 pm

  • Matt Davidson swats 19th home run
    Matt Davidson wallopped a long solo home run in Monday's win over the Cubs.

    Advice: Koji Uehara left a splitter up and over the plate in the eighth inning and Davidson pulverized it over the Wrigley Field bleachers and onto Waveland Avenue. The dinger was Davidson's 19th of the season. Davidson is sporting a lowly .284 on-base percentage and 39 percent(!) strikeout rate, but he's provided some power and that's all the White Sox could've hoped for given his underwhelming numbers in the minors the last few seasons.

  • 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 Yesterday, 12:07 pm
  • Senzel picks up two hits
    Reds prospect Nick Senzel went 2-for-4 on Sunday for Double-A Pensacola.

    Advice: Since being promoted to Double-A, Senzel is hitting .321/.379/.481. He doesn't have the huge power of your typical third base prospect, but his hit tool more than makes up for it, as does his ability to steal bases. Senzel will likely be ready at this point next summer, and his high floor makes him a top 20 fantasy prospect right now. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:09 am

  • Josh Harrison picks up three hits in defeat
    Josh Harrison went 3-for-5 with a double and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: Harrison has now cracked doubles in three of his last five games. This was his second three-hit showing in that space, to boot. For the campaign as a whole, the second baseman is slashing .277/.355/.432 with 11 homers, 32 RBI, 46 runs and 10 steals scored over the course of 361 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:57 pm

  • Ice and fire: David Freese socks solo shot
    David Freese went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: After the Pirates fell behind 5-1, Freese inched them closer with a solo homer off Kyle Freeland in the sixth inning. The veteran third baseman is hitting .251/.385/.372 with seven homers and 30 RBI in 77 games. While he has a little five-game hitting streak going, his offensive contributions have been limited on the whole. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:56 pm

  • Pete Kozma outrighted to Triple-A
    Rangers sent INF Pete Kozma outright to Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Kozma cleared waivers after being designated for assignment and has decided to remain in the organization rather than elect free agency. He'll represent utility depth. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:18 pm

  • Colin Moran goes on DL with facial fracture
    Astros placed 3B Colin Moran on the 10-day disabled list with a facial fracture.

    Advice: Moran is also dealing with a concussion after having to be carted off the field Saturday after fouling a ball off his eye. He's expected to need surgery, although that hasn't officially been determined yet. Moran is likely to miss at least six weeks. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:26 am

  • Johan Camargo picks up two doubles in loss
    Johan Camargo posted a pair of doubles with a run scored across four at-bats in Saturday's road loss against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Camargo is getting a chance to play regularly and he is making the most of his opportunity. He has back-to-back multi-hit efforts, and two or more hits in eight of his past 12 outings to raise his average from .273 to .324 dating back to July 4. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:12 am

  • Brock Holt continues to struggle
    Brock Holt was hitless over three at-bats with a strikeout in Saturday's road loss against the Angels.

    Advice: Holt continues to have difficulties at the plate, posting a .175 average overall on the season. He has just five hits across 25 at-bats (.200) in eight games since coming off the 10-day disabled list July 16 after a bout with vertigo. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:34 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

  • Chapman hits third homer in loss to Mets
    Matt Chapman hit his third home run of the year in Saturday's loss to the Mets.

    Advice: Chapman went deep against Mets starter Zack Wheeler in the third inning. It was his only hit in three at-bats. All three of Chapman's homers have come since the break, with two coming in the same game a week ago. That's the sort-of good news. The bad news is that hits on the whole have been hard to come by for the 24-year-old, who's batting just .185/.250/.415 through his first 19 major league games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:19 pm
  • Colin Moran carted off with eye injury
    Colin Moran was carted off the field Saturday against the Orioles after fouling a ball off his left eye.

    Advice: It was a scary moment for Moran, who went down immediately and is headed to a local hospital for further evaluation. His eye was noticeably bruised and bloodied after Darren O'Day's pitch struck the handle of his bat and headed straight for his face. Moran, who slugged his first big league homer on Friday, went 1-for-2 with a single before exiting in the sixth inning. If it's any consolation, Marwin Gonzalez finished Moran's at-bat by launching a three-run homer onto Eutaw Street. With Moran certain to land on the disabled list, look for the Astros to make a roster move on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:54 pm

  • Padres place Erick Aybar (foot) on 10-day DL
    Padres placed INF Erick Aybar on the 10-day disabled list with a left foot contusion.

    Advice: Aybar suffered the injury when fouling a ball off of his foot during Friday's game. Allen Cordoba is starting in his place at shortstop on Saturday and could get extended playing time in the next few weeks. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:32 pm

  • Erick Aybar likely heading to disabled list
    Padres' manager Andy Green said Saturday that Erick Aybar is likely heading to the disabled list with his foot injury.

    Advice: Aybar fouled a ball off of his foot during Friday's game and apparently hasn't improved overnight. Look for an official announcement on his status closer to game time. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:47 am

  • Colin Moran clubs first career homer in win
    Colin Moran went 2-for-4 and clubbed the first home run of his major league career on Friday as the Astros outlasted the Orioles.

    Advice: The rookie third baseman contributed an RBI triple and came around to score a run in the second inning. He then tagged Richard Bleier for his memorable blast in the eighth and returned to the dugout only to get the silent treatment from his teammates. Not a bad season debut for the 24-year-old.

  • 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

  • Harrison goes 3-for-5 with a run scored Wed.
    Josh Harrison went 3-for-5 and scored a run in a win over the Brewers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He singled and scored the game's first run in the early going. The versatile veteran provides positional flexibility in addition to a well-rounded if not spectacular stat line. He is slashing .277/.355/.434 with 11 longballs, 41 runs scored, 31 RBI and 10 stolen bases. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:45 pm

    Alex Bregman went 2-for-3 with a walk, a stolen base, and a run scored in the Astros' loss to the Mariners on Wednesday.

    Advice: Bregman started at third base in this one, with Marwin Gonzalez filling in for Carlos Correa (thumb) at shortstop. Bregman is also expected to get some time at short during Correa's multi-month absence. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:12 pm

  • Johan Camargo records multi-hit game
    Johan Camargo finished with a pair of singles across four at-bats in Tuesday's loss against the Cubs.

    Advice: The two knocks were nice, but Camargo was also charged with an error for booting a ground ball in the field. Still, his .328 average is really nice and that's what scores fantasy points. He has recorded six multi-hit games over his past 10 outings. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:51 am

  • Harrison hits two-run homer against Brewers
    Josh Harrison hit a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Harrison went deep off Brewers starter Junior Guerra in the sixth inning to tie the game. It was his only hit in four at-bats. The All-Star has had a rough go of it in the handful of games since the break, going 2-for-17, but he's still hitting .272/.352/.429 with 11 homers and 10 steals on the year.

  • Astros recall Colin Moran from AAA Fresno
    Astros recalled INF Colin Moran from Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Moran will give the Astros infield depth with star shortstop Carlos Correa landing on the disabled list Tuesday due to a torn thumb ligament. Moran, 24, was batting .308/.373/.543 with 18 home runs and 63 RBI in 79 games this season at the Triple-A level and is capable of providing meaningful fantasy value if he gets regular playing time. Marwin Gonzalez figures to take the bulk of starts at short. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:23 pm

  • Harrison back in Monday's lineup
    Josh Harrison is back in Monday's lineup against the Brewers.

    Advice: Harrison got a bit of a breather on Sunday. He'll hit leadoff Monday against Brewers lefty Brent Suter.Daily Slant: Harrison sets up as one of the premier value plays for tonight's slate against Brent Suter and the Brewers. Not only will Harrison find himself in the leadoff spot, but he actually owns some solid power numbers against southpaws to date. Coming into tonight, Harrison is sitting on a healthy .217 ISO vs. LHP on top of a 135 wRC+. Neither offense in this game sets up as a top stack, but the RH bats on the Pirates side are squarely in play, as are the lefties on the Milwaukee side. Rotoworld.com Jul 17, 12:35 pm

  • Braves activate INF Rodriguez from DL
    Braves activated INF Sean Rodriguez from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Rodriguez has been out all season after injuring his shoulder in an offseason car crash. He was originally expected to miss the entire year, but he managed to make it back just a few days removed from the All-Star break. The 32-year-old should function in a utility role.

    Red Sox activated INF/OF Brock Holt from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Holt is officially the 26th man for Sunday's doubleheader against the Yankees, but he'll stick around after that as long as his vertigo doesn't act up again. The utility player has missed most of the season with the ailment. Holt figures to see some starts at third base, at least until the Red Sox go out and trade for help at the hot corner.

  • Matt Chapman hits pair of bombs Saturday
    Matt Chapman took All-Star Corey Kluber deep twice in Saturday's game against the Indians.

    Advice: Chapman, who pushed his average just above the Mendoza Line with his 3-for-3 day, connected for solo shots in the third and eighth innings off of the Klubot. Despite the big performance at the dish he will need to start hitting for a better average before he can be trusted outside of the deepest of AL-only fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 12:04 am
