  • Parker has two hits, SB in win over Brewers
    Jarrett Parker went 2-for-3 with a walk, a run scored, and a stolen base in Monday’s win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Both of his hits were singles. While we haven’t seen much power, Parker has made up for lost time by batting .318 (21-for-66) over 17 games this month. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:40 pm
  • Delmonico homers in loss to Twins
    Nick Delmonico connected for a solo homer as the White Sox dropped the nightcap of Monday’s doubleheader against the Twins.

    Advice: His fifth-inning solo shot was the only offense for the White Sox before Adam Engel hits solo homer of his own in the ninth. Delmonico has been a huge surprise for Chicago since his call-up, batting .343/.443/.642 with six homers and 12 RBI over 19 games. His numbers in the minors didn’t really stand out and he’s sporting a BABIP approaching .400, so we’re skeptical about jumping aboard, but the opportunities should continue to be there down the stretch.

  • Granderson hits grand slam Monday vs. Bucs
    Curtis Granderson hit a grand slam in the Dodgers' comeback win over the Pirates on Monday.

    Advice: Granderson's four-run shot drove Pirates starter Gerrit Cole from the game in the top of the seventh inning. The new Los Angeles outfielder also singled and drew a walk in the 12-inning victory, finishing 2-for-5 with one run scored and four RBI. He's rattled off two home runs, five RBI, and three runs scored through his first three games with Los Angeles. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Josh Harrison goes 3-for-5 with home run
    Josh Harrison finished 3-for-5 with a homer, a double, two RBI, and two runs scored in the Pirates' loss to the Dodgers on Monday.

    Advice: Harrison did his part, swatting a solo shot in the bottom of the third inning off Dodgers starter Alex Wood and a run-scoring two-bagger in the bottom of the eighth against Dodgers reliever Pedro Baez. Harrison was the only Pirates batter to register multiple hits in the 12-inning affair at PNC Park. The 30-year-old utilityman has a cool .281/.349/.440 slash line with 15 home runs, 44 RBI, 12 stolen bases, and 62 runs scored in 118 games this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:58 pm

  • Pollock slugs go-ahead two-run HR vs. Mets
    A.J. Pollock hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the top of the 10th inning Monday as the Diamondbacks defeated the Mets 3-2.

    Advice: It proved to be a huge home run for the Wild Card-hunting Diamondbacks after Michael Conforto answered with a solo shot off Fernando Rodney in the bottom of the 10th. Pollock isn't having a very good August overall and is up to just six home runs in 79 games this season, but the dynamic 29-year-old center fielder certainly possesses the goods to finish strong down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:30 pm
  • Boog Powell slugs first MLB home run
    Boog Powell hit his first major league homer in the A's loss to the Orioles on Monday.

    Advice: It was a solo shot in the top of the eighth inning against O's reliever Brad Brach. Powell also drew two walks in the game and has now reached base in 12 of his 23 trips to the plate since joining the Athletics in the Yonder Alonso trade. The 24-year-old outfielder should see regular playing time down the stretch in Oakland and holds some appeal in AL-only fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:28 pm
  • Cameron Maybin (knee) back in lineup Monday
    Cameron Maybin (knee) is back in the Angels' lineup Monday.

    Advice: It's his first start since last Tuesday, as he's been battling nagging soreness in his right knee. Maybin missed nearly three weeks of action previously due to an injury to the same knee, and he's hit only .214/.267/.250 since returning so it seems he may never have really recovered. He's feeling well enough to give it a go Monday, though. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:04 pm
  • Ryan Rua recalled from Triple-A
    Rangers recalled 1B/OF Ryan Rua from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Rua will provide a little depth with Joey Gallo (concussion) banged up. He's hit only .202 with two homers over 99 major league at-bats this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:06 pm

  • Melvin Upton opts out of SF minors deal
    Giants released OF Melvin Upton.

    Advice: Upton opted out of his minor league contract in hopes of catching on with a contending club. Injuries have limited him to just 12 games in the minors this summer, and he's hit only .244/.306/.333. However, Upton had an .874 OPS against lefties last season and can still play some defense and run. The 33-year-old outfielder should draw some interest on the open market.

  • Acuna continues impressive run
    Braves prospect Ronald Acuna went 3-for-5 on Sunday for Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: One of the hits was a double, and Acuna also scored a run with two RBI for good measure. In the month of August, he's hitting .403, and slugging .675. He won't turn 20 until the end of the year. This is ridiculous. He's the best fantasy prospect in baseball. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:04 am

  • Wil Myers swipes 15th base in loss on Sunday
    Wil Myers swiped his 15th base of the season in Sunday's loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: He finished the day 0-for-4 at the plate, but reached on an error and stole second base in the first inning. Myers has been a bit of a disappointment this season, slashing .237/.323/.456 with 24 homers and 59 RBI. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:12 pm

  • DeShields swipes two bases in loss on Sunday
    Delino DeShields went 1-for-4 and swiped a pair of bases as the Rangers fell to the White Sox on Sunday.

    Advice: DeShields led off the third inning with a single, then proceeded to swipe second and third base. Despite there being just one out though, the Rangers were unable to cash him in, squandering their best scoring chance in the ballgame. The speedy outfielder is having a nice season offensively, slashing .285/.354/.382 with three homers, 16 RBI and 24 stolen bases. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:31 pm
  • Granderson slugs first LAD homer in loss
    Curtis Granderson hit his first homer as a member of the Dodgers in Sunday's loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: It was a solo shot in the top of the sixth inning off Tigers starter Justin Verlander. Granderson, acquired from the Mets on Saturday for minor league pitcher Jacob Rhame, should get regular starts in left field against right-handed pitching. He's up to 20 total home runs for the year. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:48 pm
  • Clint Frazier (oblique) not swinging yet
    Clint Frazier (oblique) has yet to be cleared to resume swinging a bat.

    Advice: Frazier is feeling better, but the real test for his left oblique strain will obviously come once he's swinging again. He's already missed a week and a half and appears to be a ways off from a return. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:09 am

  • Cameron Maybin (knee) out again Sunday
    Cameron Maybin (knee) remained out of the Angels' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He hasn't played since Wednesday due to nagging right knee soreness. It's the same knee that sent Maybin to the disabled list and he might have to head back there if he doesn't improve in a hurry. Ben Revere will get another start in left field and in the leadoff spot. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:18 am
  • Taylor Motter recalled from Triple-A
    Mariners recalled INF/OF Taylor Motter from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Motter has hit .204/.272/.355 with seven homers during his time with the big club this season and has made starts at five different positions. He'll operate in a utility role. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:24 am

  • Denard Span races for inside-the-park homer
    Denard Span went 2-for-3 with a solo inside-the-park home run and three total RBI in Saturday's loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: Span scooted his way around the bases for an inside-the-park home run in the first inning and collected a two-run single just one frame later. No further RBI damage after that point for the veteran outfielder. For the campaign as a whole, Span is hitting a modest .275/.326/.431 with nine homers, 32 RBI and eight steals over the course of 96 games played. He no longer holds any fantasy value, but has been a dependable enough contributor during this trying season by the Giants. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:17 pm
  • Curtis Granderson bats fifth in Dodgers debut
    Curtis Granderson is starting in left field and batting fifth in his Dodgers' debut against the Tigers on Saturday.

    Advice: Granderson was acquired from the Mets late on Friday and is already in Motown with his new club. He adds another potent left-handed bat to an already deep and supremely talented Dodgers' lineup. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:53 am
  • Delmonico uses arms and legs to homer twice
    Nick Delmonico hit two home runs, including one of the inside-the-park variety, during a 4-3 victory over the Rangers.

    Advice: He swatted a standard two-run shot off starter Andrew Cashner in the sixth inning. He produced the winning run in the eighth inning by lining a deep drive that led the right fielder to crash into the wall and drop to the ground while Delmonico circled the bases. The red-hot rookie has an amazing .382/.452/.691 slash line with five homers and 11 RBI in 15 games. He had a .262 batting average with 12 home runs in 99 games at Triple-A Charlotte before getting the call to the majors. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:17 pm
  • Dodgers acquire OF Granderson from Mets
    Dodgers acquired OF Curtis Granderson and cash considerations from the Mets for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

    Advice: The trade would seem to be bad news for Joc Pederson, who has really struggled during the second half. Granderson, an impending free agent, has quietly been one of the NL's best hitters since getting off to a slow start in April. He should provide a boost against right-handed pitching for the World Series hopeful Dodgers. Granderson will finish his Mets tenure with a .784 OPS (115 OPS+) and 95 homers over 573 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:23 pm
  • Cameron Maybin (knee) out again on Friday
    Cameron Maybin is not in the Angels' lineup Friday due to right knee soreness.

    Advice: It's the same knee that sent him to the disabled list last month and has now cost him two straight starts. Consider Maybin day-to-day for now. Ben Revere is in left field and in the leadoff spot. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:40 pm
  • Harrison has big night in loss to Cardinals
    Josh Harrison went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run and three runs scored in a loss to the Cardinals on Thursday.

    Advice: Harrison was able to get just enough of an Adam Wainwright offering, pulling it over the left field wall for a two-run clout in the first inning. The homer was his 13th of the year but just his third since the All-Star break. His production since the break aside, Harrison has been fairly useful for fantasy owners this year, batting .278/.349/.425 with 13 homers and 12 steals overall. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:01 pm

  • Wil Myers picks up double on two-hit evening
    Wil Myers went 2-for-3 with a double in Thursday's loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: Myers had one of just three extra-base hits by the Padres in the narrow 2-1 defeat. He has collected four hits in his last five at-bats, with two of those knocks going for extra bases. On a wider scale, the 26-year-old is slashing .242/.328/.467 with 24 homers, 59 RBI and 14 steals over the course of 116 games played. He is currently four home runs shy of tying the career-best 28 dingers he socked a year ago. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:25 pm

  • Jarrett Parker notches two-run double in win
    Jarrett Parker went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles and two RBI in Thursday's win over the Phillies.

    Advice: Parker gave the Giants a 4-1 lead with his two-run double off Aaron Nola in the fifth inning. With his pair of two-baggers, he has now collected seven doubles in 22 games played this season. He is working to a .268/.307/.437 triple slash in that space. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:16 pm
  • Granderson delivers grand slam against Yanks
    Curtis Granderson hit a grand slam in a loss to the Yankees on Thursday.

    Advice: Mets fans had little to cheer about on this night, and most nights, but Granderson gave the remaining fans a treat when he cleared the wall in the ninth inning to cut the Yankees' lead to two. That would remain the difference, making the dong little more than a footnote of an otherwise forgettable game for the Queens club. Granderson also walked twice in the contest. The 36-year-old is hitting .228/.334/.481 with 19 homers, 52 RBI and 58 runs scored this season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:37 pm
  • Nick Delmonico homers twice in loss
    Nick Delmonico went 3-for-4 with a pair of solo homers Wednesday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: The good times won't last forever, but at the moment, Delmonico is sporting a 1.088 OPS in 48 at-bats as a big leaguer. The White Sox had been starting to sit him some since Avisail Garcia returned, but one imagines this will help him become a lineup fixture for a little while. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:59 pm
  • Wil Myers steals home in win over Phillies
    Wil Myers racked up three steals Wednesday in the Padres’ win over the Phillies.

    Advice: He reached base four times for the Friars, collecting a single, a double and two walks. Myers accomplished an incredibly rare feat in the fourth inning when he singled, stole second, stole third and later came home on a double steal. Myers hasn’t hit for a high average this year (.240) but his speed/power combo still makes him a valuable fantasy contributor. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:04 pm

  • Cameron Maybin out of LAA lineup Wed.
    Cameron Maybin is not in the Angels' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Nationals.

    Advice: Ben Revere will play left field and hit leadoff in the matinee game against Nats right-hander Tanner Roark. Maybin is batting just .192/.250/.231 since returning from the disabled list August 7. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:23 am
  • Josh Harrison goes 0-for-4 in loss
    Josh Harrison finished 0-for-4 in the 3-1 loss to the Brewers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Harrison, a member of the NL All-Star team, is hitting just .231/.275/.328 in 134 at-bats since the beginning of July. He might have been in line to lose some playing time to Adam Frazier if not for Gregory Polanco's latest injury. As is, Frazier can play the outfield, meaning that Harrison's spot should be secure.

  • Denard Span homers, scores three times
    Denard Span went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer, a walk, a steal and three runs scored as the Giants topped the Marlins 9-4 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Span doesn't do it often, but he filled up the box score tonight; it's the sixth time in 10 big-league seasons that he's homered and stolen a base in the same game. The Giants would be happy to trade Span this month if anyone wanted an outfielder, but given his troubles defensively in center, it seems unlikely that anyone is going to take him on. He's been decent offensively in hitting .272/.322/.430 this year, but that's still not what anyone is looking for from a left fielder and that's probably what he should be going forward. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:14 pm
  • Granderson slugs 18th home run on Monday
    Curtis Granderson hit his 18th home run of the season Monday night against the Yankees.

    Advice: Granderson belted a solo shot off Yankees starter Luis Cessa in the top of the third inning, and Yoenis Cespedes repeated the act moments later. Granderson has been steadily productive since early May and Mike Puma of the New York Post reported Monday evening that waiver-trade interest in the 36-year-old outfielder "has picked up lately." We may see a move. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:50 pm
  • Interest in Curtis Granderson 'has picked up'
    Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that interest in Curtis Granderson "has picked up lately."

    Advice: Marc Carig of Newsday reported Sunday that Granderson was drawing "little interest" on the trade market, but Puma is hearing that the tide is turning. It certainly make sense given that the veteran outfielder is batting .267/.386/.563 with 16 homers since May 1. He can help a contender, whether it's as a full- or part-timer. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:51 pm
  • Granderson to DH Monday vs. Yankees
    Curtis Granderson will serve as the designated hitter Monday against the Yankees.

    Advice: Playing under American League rules will allow Juan Lagares to make a start in center field. Michael Conforto will slide over to right field. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:42 pm
  • Report: Granderson drawing little interest
    Marc Carig of Newsday writes that Curtis Granderson "continues to generate little interest" on the trade market.

    Advice: It doesn't make much sense, as Granderson has quietly been one of the league's best hitters after getting off to a slow start. He owns a 147 wRC+ dating back to May 1, which ranks higher than the likes of Andrew McCutchen, Kris Bryant, Bryce Harper, and Freddie Freeman among many other impressive names. The 36-year-old has cleared revocable waivers, so he can be traded to any team. There's still a chance that a contender will come to their senses and get a deal done this month. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:29 am
  • Curtis Granderson homers, knocks in three
    Curtis Granderson went 3-for-5 with a homer, a double and three RBI in leading the Mets to a 6-2 win over the Phillies on Sunday.

    Advice: We maintain that Granderson was the better acquisition for a contender than Jay Bruce, but there's still time to see if that will play out; he's cleared waivers and the Mets still could move him for a prospect and salary relief. Granderson is hitting .284/.409/.597 in 201 at-bats since May 15. Rotoworld.com Aug 13, 3:46 pm
  • Wil Myers finds the seats at Dodger Stadium
    Wil Myers finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 6-3 loss on the road against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Myers picks up homers in bunches, and his recent performance has been no exception. He has managed three homers with four RBI over the past three outings. His average has tailed off quite a bit but he has already equaled his home run total from the month of July. Rotoworld.com Aug 13, 1:17 am

  • Boog Powell back after asthma attack
    Boog Powell (illness) is back in the Athletics' lineup Saturday against the Orioles.

    Advice: Powell suffered an asthma attack on Friday but made a quick recovery and will make his Athletics' debut in center field Saturday against the O's. He'll hit leadoff against Baltimore right-hander Dylan Bundy. Rotoworld.com Aug 12, 4:09 pm
  • Cameron Maybin absent versus Mariners
    Cameron Maybin is not in the Angels' lineup Saturday against the Mariners.

    Advice: It's a routine day off for Maybin, who has hit a mere .176 (3-for-17) since coming off the DL earlier this month. Ben Revere, Mike Trout and Kole Calhoun round out the Angels' starting outfield Saturday against Seattle. Rotoworld.com Aug 12, 3:41 pm
  • Ryan Rua demoted to Triple-A Round Rock
    Rangers optioned 1B/OF Ryan Rua to Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Rua was optioned to make room for Tyson Ross, who is back from the 10-day DL. The 27-year-old never saw the field during his week and a half with the big club. He's hit a paltry .202 with two homers over 99 major league at-bats this season. Rotoworld.com Aug 12, 1:10 pm
