  • Altuve (head) out of Astros lineup Wednesday
    Jose Altuve (head) is out of the Astros' starting lineup on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Altuve took a blow to the head Tuesday when he collided with teammate Teoscar Hernandez in shallow right field, but the star second baseman was quickly cleared of a concussion. He'll take a day of rest anyway Wednesday versus the Indians, with Marwin Gonzalez covering second base. Rotoworld.com 22 minutes ago

  • Pedroia (knee, ankle) sits again Wednesday
    Dustin Pedroia (knee, ankle) remains out of the Red Sox starting lineup on Wednesday.

    Advice: Pedroia hasn't played since injuring his knee and ankle last Friday on a hard slide by Manny Machado. The rainy forecast at Fenway Park played a role in his continued absence Wednesday, though the veteran second baseman also still has some lingering soreness. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:42 am

  • DJ LeMahieu posts three-hit game
    DJ LeMahieu finished 3-for-5 with a double, two runs scored and three RBI in Tuesday's game against the Nationals.

    Advice: LeMahieu has collected two or more hits in nine of his past 15 games, raising his average to .295. He isn't posting many RBI near the top of the Colorado lineup, but he is piling up the hits and getting on base. The reigning National League batting champ continues to be a viable fantasy option in all formats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:08 pm
  • Daniel Murphy ties career best with five RBI
    Daniel Murphy went 3-for-5 with a triple in Tuesday's game at Colorado while tying a career high with five RBI.

    Advice: Murphy has driven in nine runs over his past three outings while raising his average to .325 and his OPS to .898. He's just getting started with two more games to play in the rarefied air at Coors Field in Denver. Murphy will be a popular play in DFS while running hot, too. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:46 pm
  • Trea Turner hits for cycle, drives in seven
    Trea Turner hit for the cycle in Tuesday's game at Colorado, finishing with four runs scored and a career-high seven RBI.

    Advice: The seven RBI are tied for second-most in a single game in franchise history, and it was the first cycle for a Washington player since Cristian Guzman accomplished the feat Aug. 28, 2008. The former standout at North Carolina State has hit safely in each of his past four starts since returning from the 10-day disabled list. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:42 pm

  • Yangervis Solarte posts three-hit night
    Yangervis Solarte finished 3-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's loss at Arizona.

    Advice: The Venezuelan switch-hitter has hit safely in six straight, including a pair of three-hit games to open the current series in Arizona. Solarte continues to start regularly and he has a penchant for collecting hits in bunches. He is trending up right now and worth a look as a nice mid-tier DFS value while running hot. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:33 pm
  • Brandon Drury collects three more hits
    Brandon Drury finished 3-for-5 with a double in Tuesday's victory against the Padres.

    Advice: Drury raised his average to .300 with the three-hit night, but it wasn't all great. He also struck out twice to give him 13 strikeouts over the past 14 games. He is considered below average defensively so he needs to keep hitting. So far, so good, as he upped his season average to an even .300. As long as he keeps his batting average up he will play regularly and serve as a solid stopgap middle infielder in most NL-only fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:18 pm

  • Hernan Perez goes 3-for-3, homers
    Hernan Perez went 3-for-3 with a homer, a triple and a walk Tuesday as the Brewers whooped the Reds 9-1.

    Advice: Orlando Arcia has shown nothing in the way of development since entering the majors, but the Brewers would be sacrificing some defense by putting Perez at shortstop, as they did tonight. Maybe they should do it anyway, at least for now. Perez is hitting .261/.346/.609 in his 46 at-bats. Arcia is at .209/.232/.299 in 67 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:59 pm

  • Jonathan Villar knocks in four runs
    Jonathan Villar went 2-for-5 and knocked in four runs Tuesday against the Reds.

    Advice: Villar is batting just .189 and has already struck out 33 times, but he's managed 14 RBI from the leadoff spot, giving him just as many as Ryan Braun has collected batting third. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:51 pm

  • Ian Kinsler scores four times in win
    Ian Kinsler went 4-for-5 with a double and four runs scored as the Tigers clobbered the Mariners 19-9 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Kinsler upped his average from .217 to .262 tonight. That's nothing special, but his OBP is sitting at .400, thanks to 14 walks in 18 games. That's a huge improvement from recent years; he walked an average of 39 times per season from 2014-16. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:46 pm
  • Jean Segura goes 3-for-6, homers
    Jean Segura went 3-for-6 with a homer and three RBI in his first game back from the disabled list Tuesday.

    Advice: Segura was right back in the leadoff spot tonight. Taylor Motter played great in his absence, but Segura isn't being threatened; Motter can get his playing time at other positions. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:36 pm
  • Jedd Gyorko collects three hits Tuesday
    Jedd Gyorko went 3-for-5 with an RBI single on Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Gyorko got the scoring going with an RBI single in the first inning, and he later added another single and a double. The veteran infielder has taken hold of the Cardinals' third base job and has also been batting cleanup of late. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:11 pm

  • Jose Altuve (head) expects to play on Wed.
    Jose Altuve (head) said he expects to play Wednesday.

    Advice: Altuve was removed from Tuesday's game against the Indians after taking a blow to the head in an ugly outfield collision with Teoscar Hernandez, but he has already been cleared of a concussion. "Most likely -- I think we still have to wait until tomorrow, but I have a good chance to play tomorrow," the star second baseman told reporters late Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:00 pm

  • Altuve cleared of concussion after collision
    Astros manager A.J. Hinch said a concussion has been ruled out for Jose Altuve.

    Advice: Altuve left Tuesday's game against the Indians after taking a blow to the head in a shallow-outfield collision with teammate Teoscar Hernandez, but the star second baseman checked out fine and can be called day-to-day. Hernandez took the brunt of the hit, appearing to suffer a serious left knee injury. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:18 pm

  • Forsythe (toe) resumes baseball activities
    Logan Forsythe (toe) has resumed baseball activities.

    Advice: Forsythe was placed on the disabled list April 19 after fracturing his right big toe, but the hope is he can return sometime in early May. The big test for him will be running the bases and taking fielding practice at second base. He'll probably start out with throws and soft-toss. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:38 pm

  • Altuve and Hernandez removed after collision
    Jose Altuve was removed from Tuesday's game after a collision with teammate Teoscar Hernandez.

    Advice: The two collided while trying to track down a fly ball off the bat of Indians catcher Yan Gomes in the bottom of the eighth inning. Hernandez took the brunt of it and had to be carted off the field with a serious-looking leg injury. Altuve was able to walk off under his own power, but it looked like he took a blow to the head. There should be status updates on both within the hour. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:26 pm

  • Schimpf out of Padres' lineup Tuesday
    Ryan Schimpf is out of the Padres' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Ryan Spangenberg is at third base and batting second with Yangervis Solarte starting at second base and hitting cleanup. Schimpf is just 6-for-59 (.102) this season, though he has slugged three home runs. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:58 pm
  • Padres recall Cory Spangenberg from AAA
    Padres recalled INF Cory Spangenberg from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Spangenberg failed to make the Padres' Opening Day roster out of camp, but he'll get the call now after batting .348/.403/.470 with one home run and three stolen bases over 17 games at Triple-A. The former first-round pick could see semi-regular playing time in San Diego, but he doesn't carry much in the way of fantasy upside. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:36 pm
  • O'Malley dealing with shoulder problems
    Mariners manager Scott Servais said Tuesday that Shawn O'Malley (appendectomy, shoulder) is not close to joining the active roster.

    Advice: O'Malley underwent an emergency appendectomy on March 21 and recently came down with some shoulder soreness. There is no timetable for his 2017 debut. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:22 pm

  • Matt Carpenter suspended for bumping ump
    Matt Carpenter was suspended one game by Major League Baseball for bumping into an umpire on Sunday.

    Advice: Carpenter made contact with the home plate ump Sunday afternoon in Milwaukee after getting ejected for arguing a called third strike. He was set to bat second for St. Louis on Tuesday night against the Blue Jays, but the 31-year-old first baseman has decided not to appeal the ruling. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:28 pm

  • Pedroia (knee, ankle) aiming to return Wed.
    Dustin Pedroia (knee, ankle) said he expects to return to the Red Sox starting lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Pedroia hasn't played since injuring his knee and ankle on a controversial slide by Manny Machado on Friday, but the veteran second baseman had a clean exam Monday at Massachusetts General Hospital and told reporters Tuesday that he's feeling looser. Tuesday's series opener against the Yankees was rained out. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:59 pm

  • Braves designate d'Arnaud for assignment
    Braves designated INF Chase d'Arnaud for assignment.

    Advice: He gets the boot to make room for Lane Adams on the active roster. D'Arnaud has been used sparingly in the early part of the season and batted just .245/.317/.335 over 262 plate appearances last season. He could potentially pass through waivers, though his versatility could draw some interest from other clubs. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:24 pm

  • M's activate Jean Segura (hamstring) from DL
    Mariners activated SS Jean Segura from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: Segura went 1-for-11 with a walk over three rehab games with Double-A Arkansas, but the most important thing is that he didn't have any issues with his hamstring. Taylor Motter did a great job filling in at shortstop and should bounce around multiple spots now that Segura has returned. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:20 am
  • Baez not in Tuesday's lineup
    Javier Baez is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Pirates.

    Advice: Baez started at second base with Brett Anderson on the hill Monday, but he's on the bench Tuesday with Kyle Hendricks starting for Chicago. Ben Zobrist will start at second base while Jason Heyward is in right and Albert Almora, Jr. is in center. Willson Contreras is also back behind the plate. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:09 am

  • Dozier hits three-run double against Rangers
    Brian Dozier went 2-for-5 with three RBI in the Twins' 3-2 defeat of the Rangers on Monday.

    Advice: Dozier gave Minnesota the lead for good with his bases-clearing three-run double off Rangers left-hander Martin Perez in the top of the fifth inning. The star second baseman has tallied just six total RBI in 18 games this season to go along with an underwhelming .257/.321/.392 batting line, but he's capable of getting it going in a hurry. Dozier does have five stolen bases in six tries. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:55 pm
  • Profar goes 0-for-2 in loss to Twins
    Jurickson Profar finished 0-for-2 in the Rangers' loss to the Twins on Monday.

    Advice: Profar is now batting just .135 with zero extra-base hits in 46 plate appearances this season. The former top prospect is a non-factor in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:52 pm

  • Hernan Perez drives in four runs against Reds
    Hernan Perez went 2-for-4 and drove in four runs Monday in the Brewers' defeat of the Reds.

    Advice: Perez belted a three-run homer in the Brewers' four-run first inning against Reds starter Amir Garrett before adding an RBI double off Garrett in the bottom of the third. Consistent playing time has been an issue for Perez in his new super-utility role with the Brewers, though maybe this big power showing Monday will earn him more starts this week.

  • Schoop homers, drives in two versus Rays
    Jonathan Schoop went 1-for-3 with a homer and two RBI in Monday's defeat of the Rays.

    Advice: Schoop slugged a solo homer off Chris Archer in the bottom of the sixth inning -- his fifth home run of 2017 -- before driving in Welington Castillo on a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the eighth. Schoop is sporting a cool .279/.324/.574 batting line through 18 games this season, after getting off to a sluggish start. He should remain a reliable source of power at the second base position. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:56 pm
  • Stephen Drew (hamstring) ramping up activity
    Stephen Drew (hamstring) has been ramping up his activities.

    Advice: Good news for the Red Sox. Pedroia was spiked in the leg by Orioles third baseman Manny Machado on Friday and came down with soreness in his left knee and ankle, but it doesn't sound like he'll be sidelined much longer. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:22 pm

  • Daniel Murphy grand slam powers Nationals
    Daniel Murphy belted a grand slam in the first inning on Sunday, powering the Nationals to a 6-3 victory over the Mets and a three-game sweep of the weekend series.

    Advice: A hit-batsmen, an infield single and a sharp single loaded the bases in the first inning and Murphy unloaded them by taking Zack Wheeler over the wall in right-center on a 1-0 pitch. It was his only hit in four at-bats on Sunday but proved to be the difference. He's now hitting .324/.359/.541 with three homers and 14 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:55 pm
  • Yangervis Solarte picks up RBI single vs. MIA
    Yangervis Solarte went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Solarte hit an RBI single off Tom Koehler in the first inning, but was unable to come up with another hit for the duration of the contest. After hitting a respectable .286/.341/.467 in 2016, the 29-year-old second baseman is off to a .243/.325/.386 start through the first 70 at-bats of the current season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:45 pm
  • Altuve goes 3-for-5 with homer against Rays
    Jose Altuve finished 3-for-5 with a homer and two runs scored Sunday in the Astros' 6-4 victory over the Rays.

    Advice: Altuve slugged a solo homer off the Rays starter Matt Andriese in the top of the fifth inning and scored an important run after a single in the top of the 10th as Houston came back from a 4-0 first-inning deficit to win the game in extras. Altuve is slashing .324/.393/.459 with two home runs, seven RBI, seven stolen bases, and 11 runs scored in 19 games this season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:00 pm

  • Dustin Pedroia (knee/ankle) to undergo MRI
    Dustin Pedroia will undergo an MRI on his left knee and ankle on Monday in Boston.

    Advice: The swelling and soreness in Pedroia's knee and ankle hasn't gone down as expected, so the Red Sox have decided to send him for additional testing. Pedroia was injured on Friday when he was spiked by the Orioles' Manny Machado on a play at second base. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:19 am

    Dustin Pedroia (knee) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's sitting out a second straight game after getting spiked in the leg on Friday on a play at second base. The Red Sox are off Monday and are likely shooting for Pedroia to return Tuesday. Marco Hernandez is handling second base again Sunday, while Xander Bogaerts is again in the leadoff spot.

    Advice: Zobrist missed a couple games with a sore back, but he'll play second base and bat cleanup Sunday. Willson Contreras is sitting out even after going 3-for-4 with a grand slam Saturday, as Miguel Montero will do the catching. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:33 am

  • Ryan Schimpf continues to scuffle
    Ryan Schimpf was hitless over five at-bats with three strikeouts in Saturday's game against the Marlins.

    Advice: Schimpf's average tumbled to a season-low .109 and he has struck out seven times over his past 13 at-bats while whiffing 22 times in 55 at-bats. The middle infielder swatted 20 homers with 42 extra-base hits over 89 games last season, but he also struggled with a dismal .217 average with 105 strikeouts over 276 at-bats. Schimpf's poor average and strikeout totals are certainly not a surprise. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:20 pm
  • Gyorko has RBI triple, run against Brewers
    Jedd Gyorko had an RBI triple and a run scored in a win over the Brewers on Saturday.

    Advice: Both actually came on the same play, as Gyorko laced a triple into the right field corner that Brewers outfielder Domingo Santana had trouble digging out. Gyorko then hustled home when the throw got away from the infielders. With the Cardinals struggling for offense and the 28-year-old hitting .310/.396/.643 with three homers in 14 games, Gyorko should be an everyday player for the Birds for the foreseeable future and can be treated as such in fantasy leagues.

  • Jonathan Schoop stays hot in win over Sox
    Jonathan Schoop went deep Saturday in the Orioles' win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: He powered a solo blast to left field off Steven Wright in the fourth inning. Schoop also added an infield single in the second. The 25-year-old has raked over his last 10 games, hitting .389 with four homers while raising his batting average from .105 to .291. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:59 pm
  • Altuve slaps solo home run vs Rays Sat.
    Jose Altuve went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, two runs scored, a walk and a stolen base in Saturday's loss to the Rays.

    Advice: He took Blake Snell deep in the fourth inning for his first homer of the season. He will have to pick up the pace if he hopes to match his career high of 24 longballs he hit last season. Altuve is batting .304/.380/.406 with nine runs scored, six RBI and seven stolen bases through 18 games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:33 pm

  • Turner goes 2-for-5 with an RBI vs Mets
    Trea Turner went 2-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Mets.

    Advice: He stroked a fifth-inning double to plate Adam Eaton, then scored on a single by Ryan Zimmerman. This was his first start since being activated off the disabled list on Friday. Turner was off to a slow start in six games before the hamstring injury. Today's good game boosted his slash line up to .208/.240/.292 with zero homers and two RBI. He has three stolen bases as well.

  • Dozier goes 2-for-4 with a run scored on Sat.
    Brian Dozier garnered two hits and a walk in five plate appearances and scored a run during Saturday's loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: He singled in the first inning and was then caught trying to steal a base for the first time in six attempts this season. He walked and scored on a Jorge Polanco double in the second inning. In the ninth inning he represented the tying run after singling to center field, but was left stranded when the game came to an end. Dozier is off to a mediocre start, batting .242/.306/.364 with two homers, nine runs scored and three RBI. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:25 pm
  • Dustin Pedroia not in Red Sox lineup Saturday
    Dustin Pedroia (knee, ankle) is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Pedroia left Friday's game against the Orioles after he was spiked by Manny Machado in a controversial play at second base. It doesn't sound as through he's going to require a trip to the disabled list, but he'll sit out on Saturday as a precaution. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:16 pm

    Ben Zobrist (back) remains out of the Cubs' starting lineup on Saturday.

  • Brandon Drury reaches four times
    Brandon Drury reached four times Friday, going 2-for-3 with a double, two walks and two runs scored.

    Advice: That'll help his .298 OBP. Drury is likely to be a well below average defensive second baseman, so it's imperative that he hits in order to remain a regular. He'll probably be solid enough with the bat, but we still suspect the Diamondbacks would be better off with Chris Owings at second and either Nick Ahmed or Ketel Marte at short.

  • Gyorko has two hits Friday vs. Brewers
    Jedd Gyorko went 2-for-4 with a run scored Friday versus the Brewers.

    Advice: Both hits were singles. Gyorko, who hit cleanup, led off the fourth inning with an infield single before coming home on a double off the bat of Randal Grichuk. The Cardinals ended up plating four runs in the frame. With Jhonny Peralta (illness) sidelined, Gyorko should share time at third base in the coming days. His power should put him on the radar in deeper mixed fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:22 pm

  • Jean Segura goes hitless in first rehab game
    Jean Segura (hamstring) went 0-for-3 with a walk in his first minor league rehab game with Double-A Arkansas on Friday.

    Advice: Segura served as the designated hitter in this one and is scheduled to play shortstop for them on Saturday. If all goes well, he could then be cleared to rejoin the Mariners. Expect him in the M's lineup on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:34 pm
  • Dustin Pedroia leaves with apparent injury
    Dustin Pedroia was forced to leave Friday's game against the Orioles after he was spiked in the calf by a sliding Manny Machado.

    Advice: It appeared to be a late slide by Machado, which Red Sox' third base coach Brian Butterfield took extreme exception to and got himself tossed from the ballgame. Look for an update on Pedroia's status after the game. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:28 pm

He is not in Friday's lineup, however, as Wilmer Difo is at shortstop. Turner batted .158/.158/.211 with three steals over his first five games before going on the DL. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:38 pm

  • Cards could use Matt Carpenter some at 3B
    Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Thursday of playing Matt Carpenter at third base that "we're not ruling that out as an option."

    Advice: Jhonny Peralta is on the disabled list with an upper respiratory issue, leaving some at-bats to be had at the hot corner. Jedd Gyorko and Greg Garcia figure to see most of the time there, but using Carpenter at third base on occasion and putting Matt Adams or Jose Martinez at first is also an option. The Cards have said previously that they wanted to leave Carpenter at first base this season, but obviously his versatility offers them additional possibilities. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:45 am

    Jedd Gyorko had a big game Thursday, finishing 3-for-3 with two doubles, a homer and two runs scored in a loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: The same day incumbent Jhonny Peralta hit the disabled list, Gyorko got the start at third base and made the most of it. The homer was his third of the year, giving him five RBI and six runs scored. Peralta was struggling even before the DL trip and Gyorko, coming off a year in which he hit 30 homers, is batting .294/.385/.647 in 12 games. It might be time to jump on him if he's available in your league. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:25 pm

  • Dustin Pedroia goes hitless in loss
    Dustin Pedroia went 0-for-4 in the shutout loss to the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

    Advice: Pedroia's power came back nicely last year, but he's collected just one extra-base hit in 55 at-bats so far this year. On the plus side, his exit velocity is slightly above the major league average and he's not striking out much at all (seven times in 14 games). Most likely, he'll be just fine.

  • Segura (hamstring) on track to return Friday
    Jean Segura (hamstring) remains on track to be activated when he's first eligible on Friday.

    Advice: Segura landed on the disabled list last week with a mild strain of his right hamstring, but fortunately it's not considered serious. Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said they haven't decided whether he'll go out on a brief minor league rehab assignment before being activated.

    Advice: Carpenter was a late scratch from Monday's lineup due to swelling in a finger on his right hand that suffered when he was hit with a grounder on Sunday. He'll probably test the finger out pregame Tuesday to see if he can return to the lineup. If Carpenter isn't ready, Jose Martinez could get another start at first base. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:16 pm

  • Dozier (knee) cracks inside-the-park homer
    Brian Dozier (knee) went 1-for-5 with an inside-the-park solo home run in Sunday's 10-inning loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Dozier's inside-the-park sprint came after he smashed an absolute rocket of a liner to center field leading off the fifth inning against James Shields. Jacob Maye -- who got just a touch of a late break on the ball -- left his feat on a full-body leap in an attempt to play hero. He missed, which allowed Dozier to cruise around before the second baseman came home safe on a head-first slide. The Twins held Dozier out of the lineup on Saturday due to minor soreness in his left knee, but he showed no ill-effects on Sunday. Through his first 45 at-bats, he is hitting .267/.340/.444 with two homers, three RBI and five steals. Rotoworld.com Apr 16, 4:43 pm
