  • Giants to call up Orlando Calixte
    The Giants are expected to call up infielder-outfielder Orlando Calixte on Monday.

    Advice: No official announcement yet from the team. Calixte, 25, was batting .287/.331/.507 with eight home runs, 26 RBI, and 11 steals over 41 games this season in Triple-A. He has experience between the infield and outfield and will serve in a utility role. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:53 am

  • Chase d'Arnaud plates two in win on Sunday
    Chase d'Arnaud went 2-for-4 and drove in two runs on Sunday as the Padres topped the Nationals.

    Advice: Drawing a start at shortstop in this one, d'Arnaud delivered a two-run single in the fifth inning that increased the Padres' advantage to 5-2. He's now hitting .350/.409/.400 in his limited action this season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:02 pm

  • Garcia socks solo home run in loss to Rockies
    Greg Garcia went 1-for-4 with a long solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: Garcia came through with a solo home run off German Marquez with one out in the sixth inning to draw the Cardinals within 4-2. It was an absolute monster shot, traveling an estimated 462 feet to right. The Rockies managed to hang onto the lead through to the end of the contest, though. In 70 at-bats, the 27-year-old infielder is hitting .261/.370/.362 with one homer and three RBI. Even with the ball launched into orbit off his bat on Sunday, there is no fantasy intrigue here.

  • Jedd Gyroko cracks solo homer in loss to COL
    Jedd Gyorko went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: Gyorko slugged a solo homer off German Marquez to lead off the sixth inning. He is now up to eight home runs on the season and has driven in 21 runs in 41 games played. Gyorko owns a .322/.377/.570 batting line in that space and has far outplayed his career .244/.302/.429 triple-slash to this point. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:15 pm

  • Andrew Romine hits RBI triple against CWS
    Andrew Romine went 2-for-4 with an RBI triple in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Romine picked up an RBI triple against Miguel Gonzalez in the eighth inning. It was his second three-bagger of the season and bumped his RBI total to 12. While he has turned in multi-hit performances in two of his last three games, he is still hitting an uninspiring .238/.316/.369 over the course of 122 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:39 pm

  • Marwin Gonzalez notches two-run double in win
    Marwin Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a two-run double in Sunday's win over the Orioles.

    Advice: The Astros trailed 3-0 entering the bottom of the second inning before Gonzalez helped to jump start a six-run frame via a two-run double off Alec Asher. The two-bagger was his sixth of the season and he now boasts a smooth .299/.394/.632 triple-slash with 11 homers and 30 RBI over the course of 52 games played. His has been one of the most surprising offensive starts in all of baseball this season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:27 pm

  • Escobar goes 0-for-4 in loss Sunday
    Alcides Escobar finished 0-for-4 in the Royals' loss to the Indians on Sunday.

    Advice: Escobar is now batting just .172/.201/.226 in 49 games this season, and yet he again batted leadoff for manager Ned Yost on Sunday. The speedy shortstop has also yet to steal a base in 2017. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:14 pm
  • Marco Hernandez (shoulder) moved to 60-day DL
    Red Sox transferred INF Marco Hernandez from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Blaine Boyer. Hernandez is out for the season following shoulder surgery. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:48 am

  • J.J. Hardy showing signs of life
    J.J. Hardy finished 2-for-3 in Saturday's loss against the Astros.

    Advice: Hardy has hovered at or near the Mendoza line for a good chunk of the past month. However, he has three multi-hit games, and back-to-back two-hit efforts, pulling his average up to .219. That doesn't sound terribly impressive, but it's his highest mark since April 23. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:47 pm

  • Anderson goes 2-for-4 with a run and RBI
    Tim Anderson went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Saturday evening's loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Anderson singled in a run in the ninth inning, then came around to score on a triple by Yolmer Sanchez. He has hit well of late and is sporting a .263 batting average with five homers, 22 runs scored and 12 RBI. The 23-year-old starting shortstop has so far been unable to match the .283/.306/.432 slash line he put up as a rookie last year. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:17 pm
  • Simmons has another multi-hit game Saturday
    Andrelton Simmons went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Simmons plated a run with a ground out and later hit a ground-rule RBI double to pad the Angels' lead. He's now got a nine-game hitting streak going, during which he's 17-for-37 with seven multi-hit games. The torrid stretch has the normally defense-first shortstop's line up to .283/.341/.398 overall. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:44 pm
  • Escobar knocks two-run double against Tribe
    Alcides Escobar had a two-run double and scored a run in a win over the Indians on Saturday.

    Advice: Escobar came to the dish with the bases loaded in a tie game in the sixth inning, and he proceeded to swat a two-RBI double to give the Royals a lead they wouldn't relinquish. It was his only hit in five at-bats. Hits have been hard to come by for the 30-year-old, who has just 32 of them in 182 at-bats this season. That translates to a forgettable .176/.205/.231 line and, more noteworthy, the accomplished base-stealer has yet to swipe a bag in 2017. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:52 pm
  • Cozart gets four hits and a homer vs Phillies
    Zack Cozart went 4-for-4 with a walk and a two-run homer but the Reds still lost to the Phillies on Saturday.

    Advice: After Billy Hamilton led off the gave with a bunt single and stolen base, Cozart drilled a Jerad Eickhoff pitch over the left field wall to give the Reds an early lead. Cozart also doubled in the game and reached base in all five of his opportunities. He is wielding a potent bat his season, slashing .355/.433/.592 with five homers, 27 runs and 25 RBI. The 31-year-old has never hit this well for a full season so he is bound to cool down at some point. He is likely to be traded to a contender at some point this summer. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:28 pm
  • Christian Arroyo not playing Saturday
    Christian Arroyo is not in the Giants' lineup Saturday against the Braves.

    Advice: He'll be spelled at third base by Aaron Hill, who is batting in the No. 6 hole against Atlanta starter Mike Foltynewicz. Arroyo held his own for a while after getting called up to the big leagues last month but is now hitless in his last 21 at-bats. He could be looking at a minor league demotion if he doesn't turn things around quickly. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:17 pm
  • 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 Saturday, 2:27 pm

  • White Sox place Tyler Saladino on 10-day DL
    White Sox placed INF Tyler Saladino on the 10-day disabled list with back spasms.

    Advice: It's an injury that developed during the week and has already caused Saladino to miss a few games. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined, but it could be longer than the minimum 10 days. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:10 am

  • Christian Arroyo continues to struggle
    Christian Arroyo was hitless in three at-bats in Friday's game against the Braves.

    Advice: Arroyo's average slipped to just .186 and he is hitless over the past five games across 19 at-bats. After a hot start the prospect might be on the verge of a trip back to Triple-A Sacramento for more seasoning. Eduardo Nunez was able to play Friday and apparently is over a hamstring issue, so perhaps that might make the decision easier for the Giants to send Arroyo down. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:46 pm
  • Christian Arroyo could be sent back to minors
    Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle writes that the Giants optioning Christian Arroyo back to Triple-A Sacramento "seems to be on the table."

    Advice: Arroyo is 6-for-49 with 12 strikeouts in his past 13 games, dropping his batting line with the Giants to .191/.242/.304 across 115 at-bats. The youngster has popped three homers and played well defensively, but the Giants have to make room for Aaron Hill (forearm) and Conor Gillaspie (back) soon and the move that might make the most sense is sending Arroyo back to the minors for more seasoning. The picture could change if Eduardo Nunez's hamstring injury is worse than expected, but right now the hope is that he'll be ready to play Friday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:51 am
  • Jedd Gyorko picks up two-run double in loss
    Jedd Gyorko went 2-for-4 with a two-run double in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Gyorko notched a two-run double against Kenta Maeda in the first inning, his ninth two-bagger of the season. The hit bumped his RBI total to an even 20. For the season as a whole, the 28-year-old third baseman is slashing .336/.384/.579. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:20 pm

  • Gonzalez launches 11th homer against Tigers
    Marwin Gonzalez hit a two-run home run, his 11th of the season, in Thursday's win over the Tigers.

    Advice: We keep waiting for Gonzalez to fall off, and he keeps defying everyone. On Thursday, he teed off against Tigers ace Justin Verlander, lifting a two-run shot over the right field wall for his only hit in three at-bats. To illustrate how out-of-character this is, Gonzalez's career high for homers is 13, set in 141 games last year. He's now at 11 dingers through 40 games this season. His durability will keep him on the field most days, and if he keeps hitting .282/.380/.627 he'll be in the lineup for a long, long time. Until he stops hitting, he's a fantasy asset for his position eligibility as much as his bat. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:49 pm

  • Arroyo added to Giants' lineup Thursday
    Christian Arroyo has been added to the Giants' starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Cubs.

    Advice: Arroyo was to be benched initially, but he's needed at third base with Eduardo Nunez nursing a tweaked hamstring. Arroyo is going to have to start hitting or he could lose playing time, possibly even his roster spot. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:15 am
  • Arroyo out of Giants' lineup on Thursday
    Christian Arroyo is out of the Giants' lineup Thursday against the Cubs.

    Advice: It's just a routine day off, but with Eduardo Nunez in the starting lineup at third base there's some thought that Arroyo could be looking a longer timeout. The 21-year-old is batting .196/.248/.313 with 30 strikeouts through his first 29 major league games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:06 am
  • Cozart drives in winning runs in ninth Wed.
    Zack Cozart ripped a single to left that plated the tying and go-ahead runs in the ninth inning as his club beat the Indians 4-3 on Wednesday.

    Advice: He came up with two outs in the top of the ninth inning. Arismendy Alcantara was on third and Billy Hamilton was on first. Cozart drilled a line drive that bounced right in front of left-fielder Michael Brantley, who blocked the ball in front of him on a dive. Alcantara scored easily from third while Billy Hamilton blazed around from first base on a ball that no other player in baseball could have scored on. Cozart went 1-for-4 with a walk in the game. He is having an excellent season, sporting a .340/.420/.563 triple slash with four homers, 26 runs and 23 RBI in 39 games. He has missed a few games here and there with a nagging wrist injury that doesn't seem to have affected his hitting. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:40 pm
  • Jedd Gyorko goes 3-for-4 in win
    Jedd Gyorko finished 3-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored Wednesday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Gyorko's surprising 30-homer season last year came with just a .243 average. This year, though, he's at .331 over 136 at-bats. There's no way he keeps that up, but he probably will make another run at 30 homers now that he's a regular. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:09 pm

  • Andrelton Simmons goes 3-for-3 in win
    Andrelton Simmons went 3-for-3 with two doubles and a walk against the Rays on Tuesday.

    Advice: Simmons struggled in the first half of May, but he is 10-for-20 with five extra-base hits in his last five games. At this rate, he'll probably be the Angels' cleanup hitter tomorrow. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:24 pm
  • Drew (hamstring) reports to extended spring
    Stephen Drew (hamstring) has reported to extended spring training and could soon begin playing in games.

    Advice: Drew has made very slow progress from a strained right hamstring, though manager Dusty Baker assured reporters last week that there has not been a significant setback. Drew could be ready for activation sometime next week if all goes well for him in West Palm Beach. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:46 pm
  • Marco Hernandez to have shoulder surgery
    Marco Hernandez is scheduled to undergo surgery on his left shoulder Friday.

  • Zack Cozart starts, knocks in two
    Zack Cozart started Monday and went 1-for-4 with two RBI against the Indians.

    Advice: Cozart didn't play Sunday because of lingering soreness in his left wrist. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:25 pm
  • Tim Anderson homers, picks up three hits
    Tim Anderson went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, two runs scored and two total RBI in Sunday's win over the Mariners.

    Advice: Anderson picked up an infield RBI single against Chris Heston as part of a five-run first inning by the White Sox and burned Heston once again (in considerably louder fashion) with a solo home run in the third inning. This was his fifth multi-hit game in his last six contests (and his second three-hit showing in his last four games) and the young shortstop is now slashing .264/.288/.405 for the season as a whole. Fantasy owners who have been patiently housing Anderson on their benches while waiting for him to heat up should consider installing him in the lineup as needed given his recent hot play.

  • Padres claim Chase d'Arnaud off waivers

    Zack Cozart is absent from the Reds' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Cozart was supposed to be off Sunday regardless, but his left wrist is sore again. Consider him day-to-day. The Reds have Jose Peraza at shortstop and Arismendy Alcantara at second base. Rotoworld.com May 21, 7:14 am
  • Jedd Gyorko records multi-hit game
    Jedd Gyorko finished 2-for-5 with a pair of singles and two strikeouts in Saturday's game against the Giants.

    Advice: Gyorko has been red hot in the month of May, hitting safely in six straight and 13 of his past 14 outings. After hitting .333 in the month of April he is doing even better in May. The former standout at West Virginia University is hitting .328 with three homers and 10 RBI through 16 games in May. Rotoworld.com May 20, 10:21 pm

  • Greg Garcia takes advantage of situation
    Greg Garcia entered Saturday's game against the Giants and he finished 3-for-4 with a double.

    Advice: Garcia was forced into action when Kolten Wong (elbow) left with discomfort in his left elbow. If Wong is forced to miss time then Garcia might see regular starts, either at the hot corner or second base. Rotoworld.com May 20, 10:18 pm

  • Christian Arroyo delivers big hit in victory
    Christian Arroyo broke a scoreless tie in the top of the 13th inning in Saturday's game at St. Louis with a two-run double.

    Advice: It was a big hit for the rookie, but the double was his first extra-base hit in nine outings dating back to May 10. His average remains rather low at .221, but he is showing more of a discerning eye at the plate lately. The rookie has managed just six strikeouts in 40 at-bats after recording 17 punchouts over his first 57 at-bats. Rotoworld.com May 20, 10:10 pm
  • Andrelton Simmons on base three times
    Andrelton Simmons finished 2-for-4 with a walk in Saturday's game at N.Y. Mets.

    Advice: Simmons is heating up at the dish, posting multi-hit games in four of the past five outings. He has raised his average from .232 to .251 just since May 14. It's great news after he slumped so hard to kick off the month. Simmons remains nothing more than a useful middle infielder option in AL-only play for his solid average, handful of steals and occasional RBI. Rotoworld.com May 20, 9:29 pm
  • J.J. Hardy plates one in victory over Jays
    J.J. Hardy went 1-for-4 with an RBI as the Orioles outlasted the Blue Jays on Friday night in Baltimore.

    Advice: Hardy got the O's on the board with a run-scoring single in the first inning. It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the night. The first seven weeks of the season have been a struggle for the veteran shortstop, hitting just .197/.230/.282 with two homers and 14 RBI. Rotoworld.com May 19, 9:23 pm

  • Anderson goes 3-for-4 with dramatic homer
    Tim Anderson went 3-for-4 with a double and a game-tying eighth-inning solo home run in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Strong all-around game for Anderson, who also nabbed his third steal of the season in the loss. His solo home run off Dan Altavilla with two outs in the eighth inning tied the score at 4-4 as the Mariners' bullpen blew yet another lead, but Anderson and the White Sox would ultimately fall on a walk-off RBI single by Guillermo Heredia in the bottom of the ninth. While the 23-year-old Anderson owns just a .254/.281/.388 triple-slash across 32 games played, he has shown signs of late that he might be starting to get into the swing of things in earnest. Thursday's three-hit performance was his fourth consecutive multi-hit showing. In that four-game space, he has homered twice, doubled and tripled. Rotoworld.com May 18, 10:27 pm
