  • Correa in Astros' lineup Thursday vs. Tigers
    Carlos Correa is in the Astros' starting lineup on Thursday against the Tigers.

    Advice: Correa was given a couple days off with a minor illness. He is starting at shortstop and batting cleanup on Thursday night against Detroit right-hander Justin Verlander. Rotoworld.com 26 minutes ago
  • Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) could return Thurs.
    Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) could be activated ahead of Thursday night's game against the Padres.

    Advice: Cabrera showed up at Citi Field on Thursday afternoon after going 2-for-5 on a two-game minor league rehab assignment with High-A Binghamton. The shortstop has been on the disabled list since May 13 because of lingering soreness in his left thumb. There should be something more official soon. Rotoworld.com 39 minutes ago

  • Crawford goes hitless
    Phillies prospect J.P. Crawford went 0-for-5 with an RBI on Wednesday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: The hitless day drops Crawford's average to .180. The only positive for his 2017 season is that he's still drawing walks, but the on-base percentage is still under .300. The defense makes Crawford a lock for the big-leagues, but there's nothing that's happened over the past year that suggests you'd want to start him on your fantasy team. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:31 am

  • Diaz homers
    Brewers prospect Isan Diaz homered on Wednesday for High-A Carolina.

    Advice: It's the eighth homer of the season for Diaz. After a slow start, the left-handed hitting shortstop has bounced back nicely, and is once again putting up quality power numbers for a middle-infielder. Whether he plays short, third or second, Diaz has a chance to be a fantasy starter because of his offensive upside. He should be big-league ready by the end of 2018. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:24 am

  • Torres reaches twice
    Yankees prospect Gleyber Torres went 0-for-3 on Wednesday for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre

    Advice: Torres didn't pick up any hits, but he did walk twice and steal his first base since being promoted to Trenton. It just goes to show you that a player like him can help your fantasy team even when the hits aren't falling. It'll be a lot of fun to see how he adjusts to Triple-A pitching over the coming weeks.

  • 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 Today, 9:15 am
  • Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) scratched Thurs.
    Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) has been scratched from the Giants' lineup Thursday.

    Advice: Nunez tweaked his left hamstring on Wednesday night and the Giants want to play it safe. It doesn't sound like something that will require a lengthy absence. Christian Arroyo is starting at third base now in the matinee game against the Cubs. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:13 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 Today, 9:06 am
  • Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) playing Thursday
    Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) is in the Giants' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Cubs.

    Advice: He'll start at third base and bat sixth versus Cubs right-hander Eddie Butler. Nunez tweaked his right hamstring Wednesday but it was obviously nothing serious. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:01 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 Yesterday, 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 Yesterday, 10:09 pm

  • Jordy Mercer goes 3-for-5, homers
    Jordy Mercer went 3-for-5 with a homer and a walk against the Braves on Wednesday.

    Advice: Mercer hit the third of back-to-back-to-back homers off Josh Collmenter in the 10th, following David Freese and Jose Osuna. Mercer was hitting just .203/.317/.268 this season before arriving in Atlanta this week. He's gone 7-for-13 with two homers in three games since. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:19 pm
  • Eduardo Nunez tweaks hamstring in loss
    Eduardo Nunez suffered a minor left hamstring tweak in Wednesday's loss to the Cubs.

    Advice: Nunez did not have to leave the game (he finished 2-for-4) and expects to play on Thursday. He has stolen 12 bases this season, but might not be quite as active on the basepaths over the next few days. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:57 pm

  • Jose Iglesias homers, doubles in win
    Jose Iglesias went 3-for-4 with a homer, a double and three runs scored to lead the Tigers to a 6-3 win over the Astros on Wednesday.

    Advice: Iglesias was hitting .159/.185/.222 with one RBI in 63 at-bats this month before driving in two runs tonight. He's back over the Mendoza Line now. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:44 pm
  • Gregorius goes 2-for-3 with a solo homer Wed.
    Didi Gregorius went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in a win over the Royals on Wednesday.

    Advice: He took starter Jason Hammel over the wall in the third inning for the game's first run. Gregorius missed the first month of the season with a shoulder injury. He has been excellent since returning to action. He wields a .330 batting average with three home runs and 17 RBI in 24 games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:19 pm
  • Turner steals two bases against the Mariners
    Trea Turner went 1-for-4 with two stolen bases, an RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's win over the Mariners.

    Advice: He reached base on an error in the first inning, stole second and came around to score the first of four Nationals' runs in the frame. He added an RBI single in the second inning and once again stole second but was left stranded that time. Turner has not hit as well this season as he did as a rookie but his speed has not diminished. He has a .242 batting average with four homers, 26 runs scored, 22 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 35 games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:06 pm

  • Carlos Correa remains out on Wednesday
    Carlos Correa is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers.

    Advice: Correa also sat on Tuesday, as manager A.J. Hinch is giving him a few days off to clear his head. He had been 0-for-8 with three strikeouts in his last two games. He is also dealing with a little bit of a stomach bug. Marwin Gonzalez draws the start at shortstop in his place and is hitting second. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:38 pm
  • Brad Miller (abdomen) starts up running
    Brad Miller (abdomen) has started running as he continues his rehab.

    Advice: Miller took part in light infield practice on Tuesday. While he won't be ready to rejoin the team when eligible on May 26, he is clearly beginning to feel better. He could potentially return to the Rays some time late next week. He was placed on the disabled list with a lower abdominal strain on May 16. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:24 pm

    Advice: A nice reward for his hot May. Baez has slashed .318/.338/.636 with six home runs, 16 RBI, two stolen bases, and 13 runs scored in 19 games since the calendar flipped from April. Ben Zobrist is out of the Cubs' starting lineup on Wednesday against Giants lefty Matt Moore, as is Willson Contreras. Miguel Montero will catch. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:09 pm

  • Orioles claim Luis Sardinas from Padres
    Orioles claimed INF Luis Sardinas off waivers from the Padres.

    Advice: Sardinas was designated for assignment by San Diego on Sunday after batting just .163/.226/.163 over 53 plate appearances in a utility role. The 24-year-old owns a .229/.278/.293 career batting line at the major league level. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:52 am

  • Mercer swats solo home run, drives in three
    Jordy Mercer mashed a solo homer and drove in three runs Tuesday against the Braves.

    Advice: Mercer took R.A. Dickey over the boards in the sixth inning and has now reached base in five of nine career plate appearances versus the knuckleballer. He then put the Pirates ahead in the top of the ninth following a long rain delay, but Pittsburgh coughed up the lead in the bottom of the frame. Mercer is sporting an unappetizing .215/.323/.299 batting line on the season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:55 pm
  • Xander Bogaerts scores four times in victory
    Xander Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with three RBI and four runs scored in the Red Sox's 11-6 win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Incredibly, Bogaerts still doesn't have a homer this season after hitting 21 last year. What he does have is a .329 average, giving him an .840 OPS even though he's never left the yard. Still, homers would help him out a bunch in the other fantasy categories, particularly in RBI; he's driven in just 15 runs in 40 games this year after coming in at 89 in 157 games in 2016. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:20 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
  • Taylor Motter goes 0-for-3 in loss
    Taylor Motter went 0-for-3 on Tuesday and is hitting .208 in 53 at-bats this month.

    Advice: Motter only played tonight because Danny Valencia was scratched. He was one of April's most pleasant surprises, but the hits haven't been falling in of late. He still has the power and speed to be interesting if he gets another chance to play regularly, but he's not a mixed-league guy right now. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:47 pm

  • Manny Machado hitless in loss to Twins
    Manny Machado struck out once in four hitless at-bats in Tuesday's loss to the Twins.

  • Chris Taylor could see starts in outfield
    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Chris Taylor could soon see starts in the outfield.

    Advice: Logan Forsythe (toe) just returned from the disabled list, crowding the situations at second and third base. Roberts wants to continue finding regular starts for Taylor, who's slashing .333/.446/.583 with five home runs and 16 RBI in 29 games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:36 pm

  • Correa out of Astros lineup on Tuesday night
    Carlos Correa is out of the Astros' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Tigers.

    Advice: Correa is 0-for-8 with three strikeouts over his last two games. Marwin Gonzalez will play shortstop and bat fifth Tuesday versus Detroit right-hander Jordan Zimmermann. Evan Gattis is also on the bench Tuesday for Houston. Daily Slant: Correa's absence makes the Astros a slightly less appealing team target, but they still hold plenty of upside against Jordan Zimmermann. The right-hander hasn't had success against hitters from either side of the plate - he's allowing a .396 wOBA to LHs and a .389 mark to RHs, with a HR/9 rate over 2.00 against hitters from both sides. His GB% sits under 30% and he's been getting absolutely crushed by lefties to start the year with an absurdly high 39.4 Hd-Sft% (20.0 Hd-Sft% vs. RHs). Add in the fact that Zimmermann simply can't miss bats (14.0 K%) and you have a very nice recipe for under-owned upside with the Astros. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:19 pm

  • Baez goes 3-for-4 with two-run HR in loss
    Javier Baez finished 3-for-4 with a two-run homer in the Cubs' loss to the Giants on Monday.

    Advice: Ben Zobrist was the only other Cubs batter to register multiple hits in this one. Baez struck his two-run shot off Giants starter Ty Blach in the bottom of the eighth, but the Cubs entered that inning trailing 6-0 and would ultimately fall 6-4. Baez is batting .264/.301/.496 with seven home runs and 21 RBI in 38 games this season for the defending World Series champions. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:24 pm

  • Padres designate Luis Sardinas for assignment
    Padres designated INF Luis Sardinas for assignment.

    Advice: Sardinas lost out on the starting shortstop job this spring but stuck on in a utility role. He hit just .163/.226/.163 in 53 plate appearances with the Padres. There's a decent chance he passes through waivers unclaimed and continues to provide organizational depth. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:45 pm

  • Manny Machado reaches double digits in HR
    Manny Machado finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and two run scored in Saturday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Machado posted four homers in April and he has six homers in the month of May. He appears to be fine after dealing with a sore right index finger recently. Despite the fact he is hitting just .225 overall on the season he remains an obvious must-start across the board. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:50 pm

    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 Saturday, 10:10 pm

    Jose Reyes finished 3-for-4 with a pair of RBI, a walk and a stolen base in Saturday's game against the Angels.

    Advice: Reyes reached 2,000 hits for his career in the game. He has shown signs of life at the plate lately, posting three multi-hit games in the past six outings to raise his average from .180 to .203 since May 13. The 33-year-old is slashing .205/.282/.329 which isn't very good, obviously. However, he is trending upward and is still worth using in most NL seasonal leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:46 pm

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 Saturday, 9:29 pm

Turner is a rich source of RBI for a lead-off batter, especially considering he spent two weeks on the disabled list in April. He has a .243 batting average with four homers, 23 runs scored, 20 RBI and nine stolen bases through 32 games.

  • Eduardo Nunez delivers in Giants' win
    Eduardo Nunez went 2-for-4 with a two-run double in the ninth to lead the Giants past the Cardinals 6-5 on Friday.

    Advice: Nunez isn't known as an RBI guy, but he's driven in eight runs in his last five games after totaling seven in 35 games to open the year (even though he spent most of that time hitting sixth and seventh). He needs to be hitting at his absolute peak in order to help a team as a starting left fielder, but the Giants feel that they don't have any better options at the moment. He'll keep playing regularly and stealing bases at a pretty good clip. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:05 pm

The 22-year-old has yet to steal a base this season, but he has still been one of the most valuable fantasy shortstops so far this season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:49 pm

    Brad Miller (abdomen) is hoping to be ready for activation from the disabled list when first eligible on May 26.

    Advice: There is no timetable for when Miller can resume baseball activities, however, so it's possible next Friday might be a tad aggressive for a timetable. The infielder was placed on the DL this week with a lower abdominal strain. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:38 pm

    Rays placed 2B Brad Miller on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 16, with a lower abdominal strain.

    Advice: Miller suffered the injury on Monday night and hasn't played since. He was off to a disappointing start at the plate this season, with a weak .205/.350/.318 batting line and only two home runs in 39 games. Miller slugged a career-high 30 home runs in 2016.

  • Machado out Thursday with sore index finger
    Manny Machado is out of the Orioles' starting lineup Thursday with a sore right index finger.

  • Cozart goes 3-for-5 with a solo home run
    Zack Cozart went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in a loss to the Cubs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He has been one of the biggest surprises in the season's first six weeks and has served as one of the best fantasy shortstops to date. He is batting a very strong .350/.437/.608 with four homers, 24 runs scored, 17 RBI and two steals. He could be on the move this summer as the rebuilding Reds look to cash him in for prospects in a trade with a contender. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:47 pm
  • Eduardo Nunez breaks up shutout with homer
    Eduardo Nunez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: The Giants were looking at a shutout entering the ninth inning, but Nunez's solo home run off Sergio Romo with one out prevented the blanking. The home run was his first of the season. Nonetheless, the home team would go on to lose 6-1. Nunez has been swinging a hot stick of late, having picked up seven hits in his last 20 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:37 pm

    Carlos Correa is absent from the Astros' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Marlins.

    Advice: Marwin Gonzalez will handle shortstop and bat sixth versus Miami right-hander Jose Urena. It's just some routine rest for Correa, who went 2-for-4 an RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday night's rout of the Fish. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:38 am

    Zack Cozart (wrist) is in the Reds' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Cubs.

    Advice: Cozart sat out Saturday and Sunday in San Francisco with a sore left wrist. It's something that has been bothering him off and on for much of the 2017 regular season, but he is starting at shortstop and batting second Tuesday versus Cubs right-hander John Lackey.

  • Miller out after tweaking abdomen
    Brad Miller is out Tuesday after tweaking his lower abdomen during Monday's game.

    Advice: Miller was in the original starting lineup, but he was scratched after still feeling the issue during pre-game activities. The hope is that he'll be good to go Wednesday. Daniel Robertson will fill in at second base for now. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:12 pm

  • Mets finally place SS Cabrera (thumb) on DL
    Mets placed SS Asdrubal Cabrera on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 14, with a left thumb sprain.

    Advice: Finally. Cabrera originally injured his thumb on May 6, but the Mets waited out the situation before he aggravated it over the weekend. He's evidently not close to returning to action, so the club was forced to make a move this time. Mets fans are clamoring for top prospect Amed Rosario, but the team is content with Jose Reyes at shortstop and T.J. Rivera at third for the time being. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:59 am

  • Eduardo Nunez knocks in three runs
    Eduardo Nunez went 2-for-4 with a double, three RBI and a steal against the Dodgers on Monday.

    Advice: Not that it seemed likely the Giants would reduce his role anyway, but any chance of Nunez being turned into a utilityman in the near future disappeared with Hunter Pence's injury. Nunez is hitting .261/.287/.324 at the moment. He remains a viable option in mixed leagues because of the steals, but it'd sure be nice if the Giants could do better in left field.

    Chris Taylor went 3-for-4 with a double Monday against the Giants.

    Advice: Taylor's surge came to an end a week ago, and he had been 4-for-26 with no RBI and nine strikeouts in his previous six games. He's more likely to be a solid offensive utilityman than a quality regular going forward. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:59 pm

  • Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) decision Tuesday
    The Mets will wait until Tuesday before deciding whether to place Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) on the disabled list.

    Advice: Assistant general manager John Ricco also revealed that the issue is with the joint of Cabrera's left thumb, not the ligament as had been previously reported. If Cabrera does go on the DL, the team is not expected to promote top shortstop prospect Amed Rosario. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:58 pm

  • Mets to make Cabrera (thumb) DL decision Mon.
    The Mets will decide prior to Monday's game whether to place Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) on the disabled list.

    Advice: Cabrera aggravated his left thumb injury over the weekend and subsequently admitted that he's dealing with a torn ligament. It sounds like the Mets will put him through some tests Monday to see whether it's possible he can play through it or if they should go ahead and DL him. For what it's worth, top shortstop prospect Amed Rosario is in Triple-A Las Vegas' lineup Monday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:24 pm

  • Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) sitting out Monday
    Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) is not in the Mets' lineup Monday.

    Advice: Cabrera has revealed that he's playing with a torn ligament in his left thumb, an injury that he aggravated over the weekend. At this point, though, it doesn't appear the Mets will place him on the disabled list. They again have Jose Reyes at shortstop and T.J. Rivera at third base Monday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:15 pm

  • Asdrubal Cabrera has torn ligament in thumb
    Asdrubal Cabrera told Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News that he has a torn ligament in his left thumb.

    Advice: The Mets announced after the initial injury back on May 6 that an MRI showed no damage to the ligaments, but Cabrera confirmed that he was told that there was a tear. He'd like to try to play through it, but he aggravated the injury on Saturday and is still dealing with soreness. He's doubtful to play Monday and a stint on the disabled list might be the best play at this point. Top prospect Amed Rosario looms as an alternative at Triple-A. Rotoworld.com May 15, 5:47 am
