  • Ryan McMahon leads Rockies to victory over Nats
    Ryan McMahon went 3-for-4 with a solo homer and a pair of RBI on Saturday, lifting the Rockies to an 8-7 walk-off victory over the Nationals.

    Advice: McMahon was at the dish for the conclusion of an instant back-and-forth Coors Field classic which ended in truly bizarre fashion when Nationals reliever Kyle Finnegan committed a pitch clock violation that led to a bases-loaded free pass for McMahon and a walk-off victory for Colorado. The 29-year-old corner infield continued to build his All-Star Game case earlier in this contest by launching a solo homer in the eighth inning to cap off an impressive three-hit effort. He’s batting .280/.354/.486 with 14 homers, 42 RBI and one steal in 286 plate appearances over 75 games so far. Rotoworld Today, 3:23 am

    Advice: Steer gave the Reds an early lead with his two-run shot to left field in the first inning. It was his ninth long ball of the season and his third through 19 contests in June. Steer is slashing .234/.326/.401 with 45 RBI, 33 runs and 12 stolen bases on the campaign. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 11:09 pm

  • Launches 13th homer
    De La Cruz went 3-for-5 with a solo home run in a loss to the Red Sox on Saturday.

    Advice: De La Cruz gave Cincinnati a 3-0 lead with his third-inning solo shot, but that turned out to be the final run the Reds scored in the game. The star shortstop came into the contest 0-for-10 with five strikeouts over his previous three contests, so the three-hit effort was a nice way to get back on track. De La Cruz now has 13 long balls on the campaign, and he's added 32 RBI, 48 runs, a league-leading 37 steals and a .240/.338/.444 slash line. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 11:04 pm
     
  • Collects three RBI in win
    Miranda went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a walk, a run and three RBI in a 10-2 win against Oakland on Saturday.

    Advice: Miranda belted a two-run double in Minnesota's seven-run second inning and added an RBI on another double one frame later. He finished with his fourth multi-hit game over his past 10 contests, a span in which he has batted .382 with two homers, four doubles and nine RBI. Miranda's hot bat has helped keep him in the lineup on a consistent basis, and he's jumped around between logging time at third base, first base and designated hitter.

  • Set to join Yankees
    The Yankees are expected to recall Peraza from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of ElExtraBase.com reports Saturday.

    Advice: Peraza is expected to join the Yankees' roster for the first time this season after suffering an injury during spring training and sticking at Triple-A after reinstatement. While a corresponding move has yet to be announced, Peraza's call-up could indicate Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) needs an IL stint after exiting Saturday's game. Regardless, Peraza should provide additional infield depth for the Yankees. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 8:57 pm

  • Accounts for lone run in loss
    Westburg went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Westburg opened the scoring in the second inning, but that was the extent of the Orioles' run production. The team had just four hits, and Westburg struck out in his other three at-bats. He's been solid lately, going 15-for-53 (.283) over his last 13 contests with nine extra-base hits in that span, though he's also struck out 15 times. The infielder has a .277/.331/.506 slash line with 12 homers, 44 RBI, 39 runs scored and six steals through 70 contests. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 8:13 pm
  • Two solo shots in loss
    Kiner-Falefa went 2-for-3 with two solo home runs and a hit-by-pitch in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Guardians.

    Advice: Kiner-Falefa had not posted an extra-base hit over his previous 10 games, though he hit .281 (9-for-32) in that span. The 29-year-old also snapped a homer drought dating back to May 26. For the season, he's up to six homers in 75 contests, matching his total form 115 games a year ago. He's added a .281/.325/.408 slash line with 31 RBI, 22 runs scored and three stolen bases. He had exclusively hit in the bottom third of the order, but he was batting leadoff for Saturday's contest -- a move up the order would likely lead to better overall production if he can stay there.

  • Homers again in win
    Donovan went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a 9-4 win over the Giants on Saturday.

    Advice: Donovan singled in the fifth inning then hit a solo home run off Giants reliever Luke Jackson in the seventh. Donovan is on fire, homering for the third time in four games and recording his third straight multi-hit effort. He has hit safely in 15 of 18 June contests with four long balls and 12 RBI. On the season, the 27-year-old is hitting .262 with eight home runs, 37 RBI and 34 runs scored in 275 at-bats. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 7:18 pm
