  • Gyorko blasts two-run homer in loss on Sunday
    Jedd Gyorko blasted a two-run homer as the Cardinals fell to the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Sunday night.

    Advice: Gyorko's two-run shot off of Ivan Nova pulled the Cardinals to within a run at 3-2 in the second inning. He also doubled in the ballgame, finishing the night 2-for-4. The 28-year-old is enjoying another solid season offensively, slashing .269/.336/.464 with 17 homers and 59 RBI. Rotoworld.com 35 minutes ago

  • Wilmer Difo doubles twice in win on Sunday
    Wilmer Difo went 2-for-5 with a pair of doubles as the Nationals topped the Padres on Sunday afternoon.

    Advice: Difo has done an admirable job filling in for the injured Trea Turner, slashing .279/.340/.385 with four homers, 16 RBI and six stolen bases in 254 plate appearances. His days of fantasy relevancy could be coming to an end soon though with Turner beginning a minor league rehab assignment on Monday. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:23 pm

  • Villar has three hits, swipe in win on Sunday
    Jonathan Villar had a nice day at the dish in Sunday's victory over the Rockies, going 3-for-5 with a stolen base.

    Advice: All three of Villar's hits were singles in this one. His bat has finally started to pick up a bit, hitting .407 (11-for-27) with a homer, two RBI and three stolen bases in his last seven games. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:17 pm

  • Tyler Saladino leads White Sox past Rangers
    Tyler Saladino delivered a two-run double in the fourth inning on Sunday, helping to lead the White Sox to a 3-2 victory over the Rangers.

    Advice: The White Sox finally broke through against A.J. Griffin with Omar Narvaez's RBI single in the fourth inning, and Saladino piled on with a two-run double. The light-hitting infielder finished the day 1-for-4 and is hitting just .196/.276/.259 with eight RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:32 pm

  • Marwin Gonzalez slugs his 21st home run
    Marwin Gonzalez hit his 21st home run of the season on Sunday afternoon against the A's.

    Advice: It was a solo blast in the bottom of the seventh inning against A's starter Jharel Cotton, but the Astros were held off the board from there in the eventual 3-2 loss. Gonzalez has an excellent .307/.382/.554 batting line through 103 games this season with first-place Houston. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:43 pm

  • Andrelton Simmons homers as Halos top O's
    Andrelton Simmons hit his 13th home run of the year in the Angels' 5-4 win over the Orioles on Sunday.

    Advice: It was a two-run shot in the top of the sixth inning. Simmons also made a couple of tremendous defensive plays at shortstop in the afternoon victory at Camden Yards. The 27-year-old is slashing .292/.345/.451 through 122 games this season and will probably get a number of down-ballot MVP votes if he can finish strong. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:28 pm
  • Trea Turner (wrist) set for rehab assignment
    Trea Turner (wrist) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Syracuse on Monday.

    Advice: It's unclear how many rehab games Turner will need, but he's missed nearly two months of action so he'll need to knock some rust off. Still, a return before the end of the month, or perhaps even before the end of the week, would seem to be doable. Turner still ranks as the No. 4 shortstop in fantasy this season even after all the missed time. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:55 am

  • Carlos Correa (thumb) to take BP on Tuesday
    Carlos Correa (thumb) will take batting practice on the field Tuesday.

    Advice: Correa took BP off a pitching machine Sunday and "looked great" and "felt great" according to Astros manager A.J. Hinch. Things are progressing well for the shortstop as he works his way back from a torn ligament in his left thumb and it's looking like he has a shot to be activated on September 1.

  • Mariners release veteran INF Danny Espinosa
    Mariners released INF Danny Espinosa.

    Advice: The M's signed Espinosa last month after he was cut loose by the Angels, but he played very little the last few weeks and continued to be a zero with the bat. Espinosa can still pick it with the glove but sports an embarrassing .164/.237/.279 batting line this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:23 am

  • Nick Ahmed (hand) begins rehab assignment
    Nick Ahmed (hand) went 0-for-2 with a walk in his first rehab game with the Diamondbacks' Arizona League affiliate on Saturday.

    Advice: Ahmed is working his way back from a fractured right hand, which he suffered back in late June. Ketel Marte has played well at shortstop with both Ahmed and Chris Owings (finger) out, but he could slide over to second base when Ahmed returns. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:31 am

  • Yangervis Solarte cracks two-run homer in win
    Yangervis Solarte went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Saturday's win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Solarte struck for a two-run home run off Stephen Strasburg in the first inning. The 30-year-old infielder owns a .268/.342/.427 triple-slash with 13 homers and 47 RBI across 90 games played. His tater on Saturday was his first since August 8. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:25 pm

  • Adrian Sanchez hits RBI double against Padres
    Adrian Sanchez went 1-for-3 with an RBI double in Saturday's loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Sanchez provided the Nationals their only run of the game with his RBI double off Travis Wood in the fifth inning. The 27-year-old infielder is hitting .279/.295/.372 with four doubles through his first 43 major league at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:16 pm
  • Machado goes 2-for-4 in loss to Angels Sat.
    Manny Machado stayed hot at the plate, going 2-for-4 in Saturday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: He singled twice and didn't factor into the scoring but it is nice to see him consistently finding success at the plate for a multi-game stretch. He struggled through a long slump for a good portion of the season but the tide has turned in recent days (he hit three home runs on Friday). He has his stat line up to .266/.320/.494 with 26 home runs, 81 RBI and 63 runs scored in 522 plate appearances and is a good bet to be one of the better hitters in baseball for the rest of the season.

  • Trevor Story doubles twice in loss to Padres
    Trevor Story went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and a run scored in Saturday's loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: Story has collected 16 doubles on the season, now. After turning in a masterful rookie campaign (albeit injury-shortened), the 24-year-old shortstop has fallen back to earth in a big way this year. He is hitting just .227/.305/.425 with 18 homers and 56 RBI across 362 at-bats and has struck out 145 times in that space. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:34 pm

  • Bregman hits 15th homer in win over Athletics
    Alex Bregman went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in a win over the Athletics on Saturday.

    Advice: Bregman launched a solo shot in the eighth inning, his 15th homer of the year. After a slow start, the 23-year-old has been tearing it up in the second half, batting .319 with seven of his 15 homers since the break. The hot stretch has helped bring all his numbers up -- Bregman is hitting .275/.357/.483 in 117 games overall. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:59 pm

  • Didi Gregorius blasts three hits Saturday
    Didi Gregorius tallied three hits Saturday in the Yankees’ win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: Didi doubled and singled twice while scoring his lone run on a three-run shot by Tyler Austin in the second inning. The Netherlands native has been a thorn in the Red Sox’s side all season, hitting .333 in 48 at-bats against Boston. His .312 average is fourth-highest in the American League behind Jose Altuve, Jean Segura and Eric Hosmer. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:30 pm
  • Gonzalez plates two with well-placed single
    Marwin Gonzalez hit a two-run single in Saturday's win over the Athletics.

    Advice: Gonzalez pulled a ground ball to the right side in the fourth inning, glancing off the second baseman's glove and into right field to score two. It was his only hit in three at-bats. It's been a heck of a breakout year for the 28-year-old, who ranks among the league leaders in batting average (.308), slugging percentage (.548) and OPS (.932) while setting career highs in basically every statistical category.

  • DeJong stays hot with another homer Sat.
    Paul DeJong continued to scald the ball, cracking a two-run homer in a loss to the Pirates on Saturday.

    Advice: He went yard off reliever Juan Nicasio with a runner aboard in the eighth inning. He also walked in the game. The rookie shortstop has come out of nowhere to have a big impact on fantasy leagues this season. He has a .305/.336/.591 slash line with 20 home runs and 48 RBI in just 70 games.

  • Hardy (wrist) aiming for September 1 return
    J.J. Hardy (wrist) could begin a minor league rehab assignment on Monday or Tuesday.

    Advice: Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Hardy could be back by September 1 if he's ready, which doesn't really tell us much. Hardy will surely need a handful of rehab games to shake off the rust after missing the last two months with a fractured wrist. Showalter had previously promised that Hardy would remain the starter at shortstop but with Tim Beckham playing out of his mind (.479 AVG in August), that's no longer a certainty.

  • Orlando Arcia goes deep in return to lineup
    Orlando Arcia (back) returned to the Brewers' lineup with a bang on Friday, belting a solo home run in a loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: Arcia was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to back spasms and sat out on Wednesday as well as a precautionary measure. He finished the day 1-for-3 plus a walk and is now slashing .284/.327/.424 with 12 homers and 40 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:09 am

  • Brandon Crawford homers, doubles
    Brandon Crawford homered, doubled and walked Friday against the Phillies.

    Advice: The homer was just his second in 118 at-bats since the All-Star break. Crawford has spent nearly two months now with his average in the .220s and .230s, and his defensive numbers haven't been as good as usual, either. He was one of the NL's top 15 or so players in both 2015 and 2016, but this year, he's been well below average. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:22 pm
  • Dusty Coleman homers for Padres
    Dusty Coleman homered for the Padres' only run Friday against the Nationals.

    Advice: Coleman started out hot after getting the callup late last month, but he entered this one 1-for-14 with nine strikeouts in the previous 10 days. He'll be a part-time shortstop the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:06 pm

  • Rosario has two hits, SB vs. Marlins on Fri.
    Amed Rosario went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Friday’s loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: Both of his hits were singles. Rosario has proven to be a free-swinger early on in his major league career, batting .241 with a 19/1 K/BB ratio through 17 games, but he has at least mixed in five extra-base hits (including two homers) and three steals. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:53 pm

  • DeJong goes 3-for-5 with a homer, two RBI
    Paul DeJong went 3-for-5 with a homer, two RBI and two runs scored in a wild 11-10 victory over the Pirates on Friday.

    Advice: He cracked a solo shot off starter Trevor Williams in the third inning, then laced an RBI single in the sixth. The rookie shortstop, who just turned 24 years old this month, has been one of the best hitters in the majors since getting called up from Triple-A at the end of May. In fact he has been playing at an MVP level, slashing .305/.333/.583 with 19 home runs and 46 RBI in 69 games. He had an additional 13 home runs in 48 games in the minors earlier this year.

  • Machado caps off epic night with walkoff slam
    Manny Machado capped off an absolutely epic night at the plate on Friday with a walk-off grand slam, propelling the Orioles to a 9-7 victory over the Angels.

    Advice: Machado crushed a two-run homer off of Angels' starter Andrew Heaney in the third inning, pulling the O's to within a run at 5-4. He then victimized Heaney again for a solo shot in the fifth. He saved the best for last though, blasting a walk-off grand slam off of Keynan Middleton in the ninth, finishing the night 3-for-5 with seven RBI. Machado's poor luck from earlier in the season has started to even out and he's now slashing .264/.319/.494 with 26 homers and 81 RBI. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:17 pm

  • Chris Taylor leads Dodgers with four-hit game
    Chris Taylor went 4-for-5 with two doubles and a pair of RBI on Friday, leading the Dodgers to an 8-5 victory over the Tigers.

    Advice: Taylor delivered a game-tying RBI double in the second inning, then plated Joc Pederson with a two-bagger in the fourth that increased the Dodgers' advantage to 6-3. He also swiped his 14th base of the season in the contest. The 26-year-old is now hitting a mighty impressive .310/.379/.549 with 17 homers and 58 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:33 pm

  • Gyorko homers among three hits against Bucs
    Jedd Gyorko went 3-for-5 with a home run and two runs scored in a win over the Pirates on Thursday.

    Advice: Gyorko took Pirates starter Jameson Taillon deep in the second inning for a solo shot, his 16th dinger of the year. He added a pair of singles for a rare three-hit night, something he's done just twice since June 21. He's having a fine year all around after settling in as the team's starter at the hot corner, batting .273/.342/.464 with his 16 homers, 57 RBI, 46 runs scored and six steals.

  • Galvis doubles, triples in loss to Giants
    Freddy Galvis went 2-for-4 with a double and a triple in Thursday's loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Galvis struck out in his other two at-bats. For the campaign as a whole, the 27-year-old shortstop is slashing .258/.308/.413 with 11 homers, 39 RBI and 10 steals in 119 games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:06 pm
  • Trevor Story homers twice in rout
    Trevor Story went 3-for-4 with two homers and six RBI as the Rockies crushed the Braves 17-2 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Story is still striking out a ton, but he is hitting .242 with seven homers and 21 RBI in 95 at-bats during the second half. Those power numbers will make him a valuable fantasy property just as long as he can keep his OBP acceptable enough to remain in the Rockies' lineup. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:56 pm

  • Freddy Galvis doubles in shutout loss
    Freddy Galvis doubled Wednesday in the Phillies’ 3-0 loss to San Diego.

    Advice: The sixth-inning double was his only hit of the afternoon. It was also one of just three Phillies hits against Clayton Richard, who went the distance for his third career shutout. The 27-year-old has hit safely in five of his last six games, batting .280 (7-for-25) during that span. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:04 pm
  • Correa cleared for everything but hitting
    Carlos Correa (thumb) has resumed all baseball activity except hitting.

    Advice: Now four weeks removed from thumb surgery, Correa has progressed to throwing, running and fielding. He's been hitting flips but is probably still a few days away from live BP.

    Amed Rosario ripped a two-run home run off of Aroldis Chapman in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Chapman hung a slider, and Rosario deposited it over the right-field wall for an opposite-field homer. It got the Mets to within a run, but Chapman rebounded to retire the final two batters to seal the victory. Rosario got off to a slow start but has picked it up of late at the dish, going 7-for-16 with a couple dingers over his last five games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:49 pm

  • Trea Turner (wrist) takes live BP on Tuesday

    Advice: Turner has already been fielding, throwing, and running, so hitting was his last rehab activity to check off the list. "Feels great," he said after Tuesday's workout. The shortstop should be cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment before the end of the week and he is on track to return to the Nationals' active roster in late August.

  • Machado falls double shy of cycle in defeat
    Manny Machado went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, a triple and two runs scored in Sunday's loss to the A's.

    Advice: Big day for Machado, though it fell in vain on the scoreboard. His solo home run in the eighth inning merely made the score 8-3. As for his triple on Sunday, that was his first of the season. While the stud third baseman is still slashing a modest .259/.317/.469 on the year, he looked like his old self in the final three games of this four-game set with the A's, having collected four extra-base hits over the weekend.

  • Carlos Correa (thumb) to grip a bat Monday
    Carlos Correa (thumb) will grip a bat on Monday.

    Advice: Correa isn't ready to swing yet but gripping a bat will be a step in the right direction. Still healing from a torn thumb ligament he suffered shortly after the All-Star break, the All-Star shortstop isn't expected back until early-to-mid September. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:56 pm

  • Cardinals make Jedd Gyorko a late scratch
    Jedd Gyorko (knee) was scratched from the Cardinals' lineup Saturday against the Braves.

    Advice: Gyorko had been slated to start at third base and bat sixth but now Greg Garcia will occupy the hot corner for St. Louis. Apparently he's dealing with a case of right knee irritation. Gyorko got off to a booming start this year but has struggled to a dismal .176 average since the All-Star break. Consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:01 pm

  • Jonathan Villar hits solo home run in defeat
    Jonathan Villar went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Friday's loss to the Reds.

    Advice: Villar drove in one run on an infield single in the sixth inning. He would drive the ball considerably further in the ninth, when he socked a solo home run to draw the Brew Crew to within 11-10. The home club was unable to come up with the necessary tying run. For the season as a whole, Villar is slashing just .222/.281/.346 with nine homers and 35 RBI in 95 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:37 pm

  • Marwin Gonzalez hits RBI single vs. Rangers
    Marwin Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored in Friday's loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: The Astros fell behind 6-0 before finally trying to make a game of things via a four-run eighth inning. Gonzalez would hit an RBI double in that frame, but the Astros did not score in any other inning as they fell by a 6-4 final. Tough result aside, Gonzalez continues to have himself a charmed 2017 season. He is hitting .314/.391/.571 on the year with 20 homers and 68 RBI in 95 games played. He has collected doubles in each of his last two games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:01 pm

  • Turner (wrist) doing 'rotational' exercises
    Trea Turner (wrist) has advanced to rotational exercises.

    Advice: It's the final step before he resumes hitting. Turner said he's felt comfortable throwing from 60-75 feet the last few days and is hoping to suit up for the final 30-40 games of the regular season. Coming off a fractured wrist, Turner will surely need a lengthy rehab assignment. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:23 pm

  • Gregorius goes 3-for-5 with a home run
    Didi Gregorius went 3-for-5 with a home run and three runs scored in a win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: He hit a solo home run off starter Nick Tepesch in the third inning, then doubled and scored in the fifth. It's not often we see a shortstop batting cleanup like Gregorius did today and he didn't disappoint. He has taken a big step forward at the plate this year, slashing .311/.336/.514 with 18 home runs and 55 RBI in 88 games. He spent a month on the disabled list early in the season. He is two homers shy of matching the career high he set last year. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:48 pm
