    Advice: Robinson was hitless in two at-bats in a brief stint with the big club last month. He'll provide depth at multiple positions. Rotoworld.com 19 minutes ago

  • Tyler Collins designated for assignment
    Tigers designated OF Tyler Collins for assignment.

    Advice: Collins had plenty of opportunities between the Tigers' wide open center field job and J.D. Martinez missing the first six weeks of the season, but he put up an ugly .200/.288/.338 batting line. The 29-year-old might wind up clearing waivers. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:26 am
  • Danny Santana continues to struggle
    Danny Santana went 1-for-4 with a triple, RBI and a strikeout in Saturday's game in San Francisco.

    Advice: The triple was nice, and the veteran has hit safely in three of the past four games, but he is still hitting a paltry .115 with just three hits across 26 at-bats (.115) since being acquired from the Twins. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:14 am
  • Tommy Pham shines in Saturday's start
    Tommy Pham finished 3-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk in Saturday's win in Colorado.

    Advice: Pham was in the lineup with Stephen Piscotty tending to a personal matter, and he continues to produce. He has amassed six hits over his past 10 at-bats and is slashing .339/.411/.597 over 62 at-bats. However, once Piscotty is back you can expect Pham's playing time to dry up.

  • John Jaso provides late heroics in win
    John Jaso finished 2-for-2 with a pair of RBI in Saturday's win against the Mets.

    Advice: Jaso came on as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning and delivered an RBI single to force extra innings. He also singled home the winning run in the bottom of the 10th to send the Steel City crowd home happy. Jaso has picked up the pace with six hits over his past 15 at-bats, raising his average from .176 to .210 just since May 21. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:49 pm

  • Kolten Wong scratched with elbow stiffness
    Updating an earlier report, Kolten Wong was scratched from Saturday's game against the Rockies with left elbow stiffness.

    Advice: It's the same injury that sidelined Wong earlier this week. Greg Garcia is starting at second base on Saturday and would likely draw another start there if Wong can't go on Sunday. Until we hear otherwise, consider Wong day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:20 pm
  • Kolten Wong a late scratch against Colorado
    Kolten Wong was a late scratch Saturday against the Rockies.

    Advice: No reason was given for his absence, though it's possible Wong aggravated an elbow injury that was bothering him earlier in the week. Greg Garcia drew the start at second base. We'll let you know as soon as the Cardinals update his status. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:40 pm
  • Renfroe goes 1-for-4 in loss to Nationals
    Hunter Renfroe went 1-for-4 as the cleanup batter in Saturday's loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: He got one of the three hits (all singles) the Padres could muster against an utterly dominant Stephen Strasburg today. Renfroe usually bats fifth but moved up one slot with Wil Myers sitting out the game. The rookie is batting .231/.286/.440 with nine home runs and 20 RBI in 196 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:03 pm
  • Jarrod Dyson rips two hits in loss to Red Sox
    Jarrod Dyson notched two hits Saturday in the Mariners’ 6-0 loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: He provided two of the Mariners’ five hits and also added his AL-leading 14th stolen base. Dyson only saw seven pitches in his three at-bats, so he obviously came out ready to swing. The 32-year-old has always been a one-trick pony, providing elite speed and little else. He had just one hit in his previous 14 at-bats prior to Saturday’s outburst. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:56 pm
  • Rasmus hits solo home run vs Twins Sat.
    Colby Rasmus went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in a loss against the Twins on Saturday.

    Advice: He did not start the game because the Twins were starting a left-hander. He was called upon to pinch-hit for Peter Bourjos leading off the seventh inning. He grounded out in that at-bat and then hit the home run in the ninth inning off Twins closer Brandon Kintzler. Rasmus missed the first month of the season with a hip injury but has played well since being activated. He is batting .254/.315/.582 with six homers and 15 RBI in 67 at-bats.

  • Romine goes 2-for-4 with a walk vs White Sox
    Andrew Romine went 2-for-4 and worked a walk during the first game of Saturday's doubleheader versus the White Sox.

    Advice: His two singles represented half the hits his club could manage in the ballgame, so it is no surprise they failed to score. The veteran utility man has played every position except pitcher and catcher for the Tigers this year. He has a .228 batting average with two home runs, 18 runs scored and 11 RBI in 129 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:27 pm

  • Josh Reddick not in Astros lineup Saturday
    Josh Reddick is absent from the Astros' starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: It looks to be just a routine day of rest for the veteran outfielder. Jake Marisnick is drawing another start in center field with George Springer sliding over to play right. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:15 pm
  • Rangers claim Peter O'Brien off waivers
    Rangers claimed INF/OF Peter O'Brien off waivers from the Reds.

    Advice: O'Brien spent just nine days in the Reds' organization before he was designated for assignment. He has plenty of power in his bat, but no true position defensively and far too much swing and miss in his profile. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:05 am

  • Tigers recall JaCoby Jones from Triple-A
    Tigers recalled OF JaCoby Jones from Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: Jones struggled after being named the club's Opening Day center fielder and was ultimately sent down after getting hit in the face by a pitch. He'll provide depth in center field while Andrew Romine covers for the injured Ian Kinsler at second base. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:00 am
  • Avisail Garcia plates three to lead White Sox
    Avisail Garcia went 3-for-5 with a double and three RBI as the White Sox topped the Tigers in their series-opener in Chicago on Friday.

    Advice: Garcia got the White Sox on the board, delivering a bases-clearing three-run double in the third inning. He's in the midst of an outstanding season, slashing a robust .341/.385/.576 with eight homers and 37 RBI. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:55 pm
  • Rob Segedin will have surgery on wrist
    Rob Segedin (wrist) need surgery on his wrist, not on his injured toe, the Dodgers clarified on Friday.

    Advice: Segedin has been battling turf toe for the past month, but it turns out he needs corrective surgery on his right wrist on Wednesday. He is expected to be sidelined until after the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:39 pm

  • Rob Segedin (toe) out four to six weeks
    Rob Segedin will undergo surgery on his injured toe and miss an additional four-to-six weeks.

    Advice: Segedin has been battling turf toe for the past month and a half already and now will finally go under the knife to correct the issue. He isn't likely to return to the Dodgers until after the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:46 pm

  • Renfroe turns in another multi-hit game
    Hunter Renfroe went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Mets.

    Advice: Renfroe is having a strong four-game stretch, going 8-for-16 with four doubles, a homer, two RBI and four runs scored in that span. It was a much-needed stretch for the 25-year-old, who was hitting just .205 at the outset of the four games. Renfroe is batting .232/.288/.446 with nine homers through 48 games overall. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:56 pm
  • Colby Rasmus knocks in four runs
    Colby Rasmus drove in all four Rays runs with a single and a double Thursday against the Angels.

    Advice: Rasmus has fanned 28 times in 71 plate appearances since coming off the DL, but he's still been productive, batting .246 with five homers and 14 RBI in 19 games. His performance mirrors the Rays' offense as a whole to this point of the season; the team is on pace to blow away the MLB record for strikeouts in a season, but it's still scoring runs at a pretty good clip. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:34 pm
  • Reds DFA slugger Peter O'Brien
    Reds designated 1B/OF Peter O'Brien for assignment.

    Advice: Cincinnati just claimed O'Brien off waivers nine days ago from the Royals. The 26-year-old has batted .168/.252/.304 with four home runs and 37 strikeouts in 32 games this season between Triple-A Omaha and Triple-A Louisville. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:58 am

  • Kolten Wong (elbow) returns to lineup
    Kolten Wong (elbow) is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Wong was forced out of action on Saturday due to mild discomfort in his left elbow. After sitting out several games to start the week, he will be back at second second base and is hitting eighth in Wednesday's contest. Mike Leake will take the ball for the Cards in this one, to be opposed by Rich Hill. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:59 pm
  • Avisail Garcia (flu) back in lineup Wednesday
    Avisail Garcia (flu) is back in the White Sox starting lineup Wednesday afternoon in Arizona.

    Advice: He'll start in right field and bat fifth against Diamondbacks right-hander Randall Delgado after missing Tuesday's game with a mild case of the flu. Garcia boasts a .971 OPS with eight home runs and 34 RBI over 43 games this season for Chicago. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:40 am
  • Avisail Garcia out Tuesday night due to flu
    Avisail Garcia is out of the White Sox starting lineup Tuesday due to the flu.

    Advice: It could be a multi-day absence for Garcia, who's off to a tremendous start in 2017. Willy Garcia is starting in right field and batting seventh Tuesday night against Diamondbacks left-hander Patrick Corbin. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:22 pm
  • Wong (elbow) out of Cardinals lineup Tuesday
    Kolten Wong (elbow) remains out of the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Wong remains day-to-day with mild discomfort in his left elbow. He was probably going to sit anyway with the Dodgers throwing left-hander Clayton Kershaw. Jedd Gyorko is starting at second base and batting cleanup. Jhonny Peralta is at third base and batting sixth. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:07 pm
  • Avisail Garcia scratched from ChiSox lineup
    Avisail Garcia has been scratched from the White Sox starting lineup on Tuesday night.

    Advice: No word yet on the reason for the sudden change. Willy Garcia is now starting in right field and batting seventh versus Diamondbacks left-hander Patrick Corbin. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:36 pm
  • Hunter Renfroe doubles on three-hit afternoon
    Hunter Renfroe went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI single in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: The double was Renfroe's eighth of the season. In addition, the 25-year-old outfielder is slashing .218/.275/.412 with eight homers and 19 RBI over the course of 45 games played. His almost complete lack of contact (Sunday's three-hit showing aside) puts a real cap on his fantasy upside, though the power output has been there. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:10 pm
  • Kolten Wong (elbow) sitting out Sunday
    Kolten Wong (elbow) is not in the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Wong tweaked his left (non-throwing) elbow on a swing Saturday. He's day-to-day. Greg Garcia is filling in at second base. The Cards are also giving Jedd Gyorko and Stephen Piscotty days off, as Jhonny Peralta is at third base and Tommy Pham and Randal Grichuk are occupying the corner outfield spots. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:13 am
  • Avisail Garcia tallies six RBI on Saturday
    Avisail Garcia finished 4-for-5 with two doubles, two home runs and six RBI in Saturday's 16-1 win in Seattle.

    Advice: Garcia has been on fire lately, posting four multi-hit games over his past five outings. He is 11-for-23 (.478) with four doubles, a triple, two homers and nine RBI across the past five games to raise his average from .336 to .357 just since May 15. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:43 pm
  • Kolten Wong leaves with left elbow discomfort
    Kolten Wong left Saturday's game against the Giants with left elbow discomfort.

    Advice: Greg Garcia replaced Wong at second base to begin the fourth inning. Wong lined out to left field in his only at-bat of the night. Consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:03 pm
  • Hunter Renfroe clubs eighth homer on Thursday
    Hunter Renfroe checked in with his eighth home run of the year Thursday in the Padres’ 4-2 loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: He slugged a solo shot off Zach Davies for the game’s first run. The home run was Renfroe’s only hit of the afternoon. Almost half of Renfroe’s hits this year have gone for extra bases but it’s hard to justify using him in fantasy while he’s batting just .214. He’s gone deep in three of his last five games, so perhaps Renfroe is beginning to figure it out offensively. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:24 pm
