  • Kyle Seager says his sore hip now feels fine
    Kyle Seager told reporters Tuesday that his hip feels fine.

    Advice: Seager was scratched from Sunday's series finale against the A's with a sore hip and he won't start Tuesday night's series opener at Detroit, but it sounds like the third baseman will be available off the bench. Taylor Motter is filling in at the hot corner for Seattle on Tuesday with Jean Segura (hamstring) returning to shortstop. Rotoworld.com 41 minutes ago

  • 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 Today, 12:24 pm

  • Souza (elbow) in Tuesday's lineup vs. O's
    Steven Souza (elbow) is in Tuesday's lineup against the Orioles.

    Advice: Souza banged his right elbow while trying to catch a home run ball during Monday's game, but fortunately X-rays came back negative and he won't have to miss any time. He's due to hit leadoff with left-hander Wade Miley on the hill for Baltimore. Souza is off to a red-hot start at the plate, batting .333/.416/.590 with four homers and 17 RBI through 21 games. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:18 pm
  • Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) returns to lineup
    Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) has returned to the Mets' lineup Tuesday against the Braves.

    Advice: Cespedes was forced to miss the entire weekend series against the Nationals while nursing left hamstring soreness, but he's back in there as promised Tuesday. Of course, there's rain in the forecast and the game might not be played. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:11 pm
  • Marlins 'moving forward' with Jeb/Jeter group
    Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins are "moving forward" with an investment group including Jeb Bush and Derek Jeter to purchase the team.

    Advice: This confirms a report from Scott Soshnick of Bloomberg. Jackson hears that there's an "agreement in principle" for the Jeb/Jeter group to purchase the team from Jeffrey Loria, with the price tag at $1.3 billion. Bush is expected to be the control person, according to Jackson, but more than five investors are involved and Jeter is expected to have an active role. Of course, any sale will need to be approved by MLB's other owners. Loria originally purchased the Marlins for $158.5 million in 2002. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:59 am
  • Guyer starting in right field Tuesday
    Brandon Guyer will start in right field Tuesday against the Astros.

    Advice: No surprise with left-hander Dallas Keuchel on the hill for Houston. Guyer will hit seventh and makes for a useful option in daily formats. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:35 am
  • Jaso starting in right field Tuesday
    John Jaso will start in right field Tuesday versus the Cubs.

    Advice: Jose Osuna made the start in right field against lefty Brett Anderson on Monday, but Jaso will get a shot Tuesday with right-hander Kyle Hendricks on the hill. The Pirates figure to look for alternatives, but this should be the platoon arrangement with Adam Frazier (hamstring) on the shelf. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:26 am

  • 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 Today, 11:20 am

  • Tapia picks up three hits
    Rockies prospect Raimel Tapia picked up three hits on Monday for Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: He's now hitting .356 on the season in the PCL. Tapia didn't have any success in his (very) short stay with the Rockies, but that shouldn't scare you. The Rockies outfield depth should scare you. Tapia might need a trade for him to fulfill his fantasy promise. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:35 am

  • Rosario continues to hit
    Mets prospect Amed Rosario got on base four times on Monday for Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Rosario went 2-for-3, and also walked twice. That ups his batting average to .414 and on-base percentage to .455. It's getting harder and harder to justify his place in the minor leagues. He looks ready. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:23 am

  • Three hits for Barreto
    Athletics prospect Franklin Barreto picked up three hits on Monday for Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Barreto has been prone to slow starts, but not this year. He's hitting .352/.400/.549 with the Sounds, and showing why so many believe he's one of the best shortstop prospects in baseball. Oakland general manager David Forst recently said that Barreto isn't a candidate for a call-up, but more efforts like this could force the A's hand. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:18 am

  • Rutledge activated from 10-day DL
    Red Sox activated INF Josh Rutledge from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: Rutledge will replace the injured Pablo Sandoval (knee) on the active roster and figures to share playing time at third base in the coming days. The 28-year-old went 1-for-12 with a homer over five rehab games while working his way back from a left hamstring strain. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:15 am
  • Red Sox place Sandoval (knee) on 10-day DL
    Red Sox placed 3B Pablo Sandoval on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 24, with a right knee sprain.

    Advice: Sandoval suffered the injury while making a play at third base on Sunday. Results of an MRI on Monday aren't yet known, but the Red Sox should provide a timetable soon. Josh Rutledge has been activated from the disabled list to take his place on the active roster. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:09 am

  • Donaldson (calf) begins jumping
    Josh Donaldson has begun to test his right calf strain.

    Advice: Donaldson was placed on the disabled list earlier this month after aggravating his calf strain, but he's starting to make some progress. He has begun jumping activities, though the real test will be trying to run. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported last week that Donaldson is likely to miss 2-4 weeks, so he's looking at a return around early-to-mid May if all goes well. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:24 am

  • Tulo sent for MRI on hamstring
    Troy Tulowitzki returned to Toronto on Monday for an MRI on his strained right hamstring.

    Advice: Tulowitzki landed on the disabled list over the weekend after injuring his hamstring during Friday's game. The results of the MRI aren't yet known, but Blue Jays manager John Gibbons doesn't expect a lengthy absence. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:21 am

  • Matt Reynolds expected to join Mets
    Matt Reynolds is expected to join the Mets on Tuesday.

    Advice: No word yet on the corresponding roster move. Betsy Helfand of the Las Vegas Review-Journal notes that Reynolds has primarily been playing left field this season, so he could provide some insurance between the outfield and infield. The 26-year-old hit .225/.266/.416 with three homers and 13 RBI over 96 plate appearances with the Mets last season. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:30 am

  • David Peralta goes 3-for-4 in win
    David Peralta went 3-for-4 and swiped his third base Monday against the Padres.

    Advice: The Diamondbacks are doing a lot of running this year, and Peralta is already one-third of the way to his career high of nine steals established in 2015. He's also hitting great at the moment, going 17-for-31 over his last seven games. It makes him look like a solid mixed-league choice. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:04 pm
  • Wil Myers hits three-run homer
    Wil Myers hit a three-run homer in a losing cause Monday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Myers has a hideous 22/2 K/BB ratio in 84 at-bats, but it hasn't stopped him from hitting .345 with five homers and 14 RBI. Like some other hitters, he's going for more flyballs than usual, with great success so far. That average should come way down, though. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:02 pm
  • Andrew Toles goes 0-for-4
    Andrew Toles went 0-for-4 as the Dodgers' leadoff man in Monday's loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Toles has three homers from the leadoff spot, but he's hitting just .220 with a .278 OBP in 50 at-bats. He'll probably log more time low in the order when Logan Forsythe returns. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:51 pm
  • Cameron Maybin reaches twice
    Cameron Maybin singled, walked and stole a base against the Blue Jays on Monday.

    Advice: Maybin isn't exactly running away with the left field job, but since Ben Revere has hit even worse, Maybin should continue getting the majority of the playing time. He's sporting a .591 OPS in 54 at-bats, while Revere is at .413 in 31 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:44 pm
  • Russell Martin hits second homer
    Russell Martin went 2-for-4 and homered for the Jays' only run of the game Monday.

    Advice: Martin is 8-for-26 with a couple of homers in his last seven games, taking his average from .042 to .180. The two homers have been responsible for his only runs batted in of the year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:42 pm
  • Mark Reynolds hits sixth homer
    Mark Reynolds went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer Monday in the Rockies' 8-4 win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Reynolds was pretty quiet for two weeks after his blistering start, but now he has two homers in his last three games. It means the Rockies will likely bring Ian Desmond back from the DL as an outfielder initially, though Reynolds could still be pushed back into a reserve role when David Dahl is ready. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:58 pm
  • Tony Wolters goes 3-for-4 in win
    Tony Wolters finished 3-for-4 with a couple of RBI against the Nationals in Monday's win.

    Advice: Wolters has been great with Tom Murphy out, hitting .351 in 37 at-bats. It's surprising that the Rockies haven't played him over Dustin Garneau more consistently (Garneau has 33 at-bats), given that he's the stronger defender and the far better hitter to date. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:50 pm
  • Anthony Rendon goes 3-for-4
    Anthony Rendon went 3-for-4 with an RBI against the Rockies on Monday.

    Advice: Rendon is still looking for his first homer, but he has pushed his average up to .246 after a 3-for-28 start. He's struck out just five times in his last 11 games after doing so nine times in the first seven. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:47 pm
  • Sandoval (knee) to undergo MRI on Monday
    Pablo Sandoval (knee) will undergo an MRI on Monday.

    Advice: Sandoval exited Sunday's game against the Orioles with what was termed as a right knee sprain. He was initially called day-to-day, but there should be more clarity on his status soon. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:19 pm
    10-Day DL

  • Rutledge (hamstring) to continue rehab stint
    Josh Rutledge (hamstring) has shifted his minor league rehab assignment to Double-A Portland.

    Advice: Rutledge was with Triple-A Pawtucket, but they are off on Monday. Assuming all goes well, he could be ready to join the Red Sox in the next day or two. The 28-year-old began the year on the disabled list with a left hamstring strain. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:34 am
  • Cespedes says he'll be ready for Tuesday
    Mets manager Terry Collins said after Sunday's game that Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) told him he'll be ready for Tuesday.

    Advice: Cespedes sat out the entire weekend series against the Nationals due to a sore left hamstring, but he was available as a pinch-hitter for Sunday's game and was in the on-deck circle before the final out. It's not a sure thing he'll be ready for Tuesday, as the Mets will have him go through a pre-game workout before making a final decision. Still, he's sorely missed at the moment, as the Mets have dropped eight out of their last nine. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:36 am
  • Stanton picks up three singles against Padres
    Giancarlo Stanton went 3-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's win over the Padres.

    Advice: Stanton has been in the zone of late, having collected multiple hits in three of his last four games. Two of those three multi-hit showings were of the three-hit variety. In that same four-game space, Stanton has slugged four home runs. All of this scalding work has helped to boost his batting line to .300/.367/.614 to pair with seven home runs and 15 RBI across an even 70 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:55 pm
  • Souza slugs fourth homer in loss to HOU
    Steven Souza hit his fourth home run of the season Sunday in the Rays' loss to the Astros.

    Advice: It was a two-run shot in the Rays' four-run first inning against Astros starter Joe Musgrove. Souza is off to a blistering start this season, now with a .347/.424/.613 batting line and 17 RBI in 20 games. If he can stay healthy, the power production should continue. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:57 pm
  • Kyle Seager scratched Sunday with sore hip
    Kyle Seager was scratched from the Mariners' lineup Sunday with a sore hip.

    Advice: It's something that been bothering him for a few days, although Seager said he'd be available to pinch-hit so it looks like a minor issue. Mike Freeman will fill in at third base. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:00 am

  • Giancarlo Stanton belts two HRs in win
    Giancarlo Stanton finished 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs and three RBI in Saturday's extra-innings win in San Diego.

    Advice: Stanton swatted a two-run shot off Miguel Diaz to send the home crowd at Petco Park home with frowns. The slugger is in a groove right now, belting four homers with six RBI over his past three outings while delivering at least one souvenir in each of the contests. Stanton is locked in and making his fantasy owners very happy after a bit of a slow start. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:03 pm
  • Two-by-four: Peralta hits four doubles in win
    David Peralta finished 4-for-5 with four doubles and three runs scored in a lopsided win over the Dodgers on Saturday.

    Advice: Peralta had one double in 15 games coming into Saturday's contest. The good game raised his average 40 points, to .294. After his 2016 season was cut short due to injury, Peralta has two homers and two steals in the early portion of the schedule and will continue to be an important part of the Diamondbacks' offense in 2017. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:45 pm
  • Mark Reynolds drives in four in victory
    Mark Reynolds went 3-for-5 with a double, two-run home run and four RBI in Saturday's win against the Giants.

    Advice: Reynolds is humming right along to open the season, posting seven multi-hit games so far in the month of April while managing a .339 batting average with a 1.061 OPS. He is also up to five homers with 10 extra-base hits and 16 RBI. Reynolds remains a bona fide fantasy starter in all NL-only formats and he is turning heads in deeper mixed leagues again, too. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:32 pm
  • Strained hamstring sends Tulowitzki to DL
    Blue Jays placed SS Troy Tulowitzki on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

    Advice: Tulowitzki joins Josh Donaldson (calf), Aaron Sanchez (finger) and J.A. Happ (elbow) among the Blue Jays' walking wounded. He suffered the injury Friday while running to third base on a wild pitch by Cam Bedrosian. Manager John Gibbons said the new 10-day rule was "definitely a factor" in placing Tulowitzki on the DL. Utility man Ryan Goins is starting in his place Saturday against the Angels. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:06 pm

  • Cespedes (hamstring) unlikely for Sunday
    Speaking after Saturday’s loss to the Nationals, Mets manager Terry Collins said he doesn’t expect Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) to play in Sunday’s series finale.

    Advice: Cespedes spent most of Saturday’s game getting worked on in the trainer’s room and didn’t feel healthy enough to pinch-hit when Collins called on him in the seventh inning. With New York playing a night game in potentially cold weather, there’s little chance of Cespedes seeing the field on Sunday. He’s day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:39 pm
  • Kyle Seager not in Mariners' lineup Saturday
    Kyle Seager is absent from the Mariners' starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Athletics.

    Advice: Seager has played in each of the team's first 18 games of the season so he has earned a day off. Mike Freeman is starting at the hot corner and batting eighth against Jharel Cotton and the A's on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:06 am

  • Cespedes (hamstring) remains out of lineup
    Yoenis Cespedes remains out of the Mets' starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Nationals.

    Advice: Cespedes continues to battle a sore left hamstring and isn't available for a prime matchup against left-hander Gio Gonzalez. Michael Conforto is drawing another start for the Mets and is batting second on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:26 am
  • Guyer slugs two-run homer in win
    Brandon Guyer slugged a two-run homer in Friday’s win over the White Sox.

    Advice: Guyer has two specialities, specifically getting hit by pitches and mashing lefties. He did the latter on Friday, taking Jose Quintana deep in the fourth inning to collect his first home run and RBI of the season. The 31-year-old is a useful piece for Terry Francona to have around, but he’s unlikely to play enough to warrant attention in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:16 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
    4:10 pm @Det
     
  • Pablo Sandoval has rough night in loss to O's
    Pablo Sandoval had a rough night in Friday's loss to the Orioles, going 0-for-3 with a strikeout and making his fourth error of the season defensively at third base.

    Advice: As a team, the Red Sox were held to just six hits on Friday and were unable to score against Dylan Bundy and company. Sandoval is now hitting just .214/.262/.393 with three homers and 10 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:35 pm

  • Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) sitting out Fri.
    Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) is not in the Mets' lineup Friday.

    Advice: But he hasn't been placed on the disabled list yet, which is obviously encouraging. Cespedes said he felt a "shock" in his left hamstring on Thursday and he'll be held out of action for a few days. The Mets have an outfield of Michael Conforto in left, Juan Lagares in center and Curtis Granderson in right Friday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:13 pm
  • Wil Myers swats solo home run in victory
    Wil Myers went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Myers connected for a long solo home run off Patrick Corbin with two outs in the first inning. The dinger was his fourth of the month. After posting a breakout 2016 season, Myers is off to a brilliant start in 2017, working to a .373/.387/.686 triple-slash with 11 RBI and 11 runs scored over 67 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:55 pm
  • Cespedes (hamstring) expects to miss 2-3 days
    Yoenis Cespedes doesn't think his hamstring injury is serious and only expects to miss 2-3 days.

    Advice: He confirmed the injury was not a cramp as previously reported. Cespedes said he felt a "shock" in his hamstring but has had similar injuries and doesn't think this one is as bad. More will be known after Cespedes goes for an MRI on Friday morning. Cespedes suffered the injury while running to second base in Thursday night's loss to Philadelphia. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:23 pm
  • Cespedes to undergo (hamstring) MRI Friday
    Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) will undergo an MRI on Friday morning.

    Advice: Manager Terry Collins said he's "concerned" about Cespedes, who was hobbling around the clubhouse with a heavily wrapped leg after Thursday night's loss to Philadelphia. The Mets originally called the injury a cramp, but now it's looking like it could be something more serious. The last thing the slumping Mets need right now is another injury, especially one to their best hitter. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:03 pm
  • Yoenis Cespedes leaves with hamstring cramp
    Yoenis Cespedes left Thursday's game against the Phillies with a left hamstring cramp.

    Advice: Cespedes pulled up lame running from first to second on a Jay Bruce groundout in the fifth inning. He hobbled off the field and went straight to the clubhouse. Cespedes didn't come out for the sixth inning with Juan Lagares entering the game at center field and Michael Conforto moving from center to left. Cespedes went 1-for-2 with a single and walk before exiting. Consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:12 pm
  • Jean Segura to begin rehab assignment Friday
    Jean Segura (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Arkansas on Friday.

    Advice: He'll DH on Friday before moving to shortstop later this weekend. Segura is targeting Tuesday for his return to Seattle. The 27-year-old was hitting .313 before a strained right hamstring sent him to the disabled list on April 11. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:48 pm

  • David Peralta getting the day off Thursday
    David Peralta is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Thursday against the Padres.

    Advice: Peralta doesn't hit lefties well and will get the day off Thursday against Friars southpaw Clayton Richard. Chris Owings will draw the start in right field and bat second. Peralta is off to an underwhelming start with a .237 average and just two homers through 59 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:22 pm
  • Souza comes up single shy of cycle
    Steven Souza missed a cycle by a single and drove in three runs Thursday as the Rays topped the Tigers 8-1.

    Advice: The double should have been an out and the triple should have been a single, but the homer was perfectly legit. The other two balls were misplayed by Tyler Collins in right field. Still, that doesn't take away much from Souza, who has looked much more comfortable at the plate in the early going. He's not going to keep hitting .349 or anything close to it, but the power is for real. He has three homers and 15 RBI through 17 games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:28 pm
  • Two more homers for Bellinger
    Dodgers prospect Cody Bellinger hit two more homers on Wednesday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: That gives Bellinger five homers in his 13 games this year. He's hitting .360/.439/.749, and he's stolen four bases. That'll work. He's also struck out 16 times in 13 games, but that's nitpicking. The offensive potential here is immense, and it should show up in Los Angeles at some point -- especially if these kind of numbers keep going. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:01 am

  • Russell Martin getting day off Thursday
    Russell Martin is out of the Blue Jays' lineup Thursday afternoon against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Jarrod Saltalamacchia will start at catcher and hit seventh versus Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale. Martin owns a brutal .103/.271/.205 batting line in 48 plate appearances this season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:09 am
  • Troy Tulowitzki out of Jays' lineup Thursday
    Troy Tulowitzki will get the day off Thursday.

    Advice: Ryan Goins is starting at shortstop and hitting ninth in the Blue Jays' series finale against Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale. Tulowitzki has batted just .264/.286/.396 through 56 plate appearances this season, though he does have 10 RBI in 14 games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:06 am

  • Farrell frustrated by Sandoval's defense
    Red Sox manager John Farrell noted Wednesday that there are still serious concerns about Pablo Sandoval's defense.

    Advice: Sandoval made an errant throw on a routine grounder Wednesday that kicked off a three-run second inning for the host Blue Jays. It was his third error in 12 games. "There's been times where there's been some plays that, quite frankly, should be made," Farrell said. "Tonight was an example of that." It obviously doesn't help that Sandoval is also batting just .224 with a .278 on-base percentage through 54 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:37 am

  • Rendon goes 3-for-6 with a run vs Braves
    Anthony Rendon went 3-for-6 and scored a run in a big win over the Braves on Wednesday.

    Advice: All three hits were singles but it was a pleasant sight for his owners nonetheless. Rendon has been mired in a severe slump to start the season, so perhaps this is a sign he has turned things around. Even after tonight's strong game he is still batting just .226/.268/.264 with no homers and four RBI. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:04 pm
  • Kyle Seager drives in four runs vs. Marlins
    Kyle Seager went 2-for-3 with an RBI double and four total RBI in Wednesday's 10-5 win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Seager drove in his runs in multiple fashions. First up, an RBI double in the third inning. He was immediately back at it in the fourth courtesy of a two-run single and capped off his afternoon's work by drawing a bases-loaded walk in the eighth inning. Seager is as consistent as they come on the whole, but is off to a bit of a slow start for the 2017 campaign. His two hits on Wednesday bumped his triple-slash up to .254/.364/.321 in 53 at-bats. He is still searching for his first home run after bopping 30 of them last season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:12 pm

  • Stanton socks home run in 3-for-3 showing
    Giancarlo Stanton went 3-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Stanton crushed a Felix Hernandez offering an estimated 445 feet to lead off the third inning. The dinger was his fourth of the season. In addition, the slugger is slashing .268/.354/.500 and has driven in nine runs over the course of 56 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:05 pm
  • Segura (hamstring) to be activated Tuesday
    Jean Segura (hamstring) is on track to be activated next Tuesday.

    Advice: Segura will play several rehab games with Double-A Arkansas before joining the Mariners for the start of a Tuesday-Thursday series in Detroit. The shortstop landed on the 10-day disabled list April 11 because of a strained right hamstring. Taylor Motter has been filling in at short for Seattle and is expected to be kept around as a utilityman. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:50 am

  • Cameron Maybin goes 0-for-4
    Back in the lineup after sitting out a pair of games, Cameron Maybin went 0-for-4 against the Astros on Tuesday.

    Advice: Angels manager Mike Scioscia has been tweaking and tweaking, but he made the decision tonight to go back to his Opening Day lineup, and the offense came through with a decent night in a 5-2 win. Maybin is hitting just .189/.268/.297 in 37 at-bats so far, but Scioscia's preferred alternative, Ben Revere, has been even worse, hitting .185/.214/.259 in in 27 at-bats. The two could continue alternating starts until someone heats up. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:18 pm
  • Russell Martin socks first homer of season
    Russell Martin belted his first home run of the season on Tuesday versus the Red Sox.

    Advice: It came off of Brian Johnson in the fifth inning. Martin also added a walk, scoring a couple times. It's been a really rough start for the Blue Jays' backstop, much like it was last season. He's hitting just .114/.295/.229 even after the nice night Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:26 pm
  • Segura (hamstring) cleared for rehab games
    Jean Segura (hamstring) has been cleared for a minor league rehab assignment.

    Advice: He'll play in a couple of minor league games, likely with High-A Modesto, before returning to the Mariners this weekend in Oakland. Segura has been on the disabled list since April 11 because of a strained right hamstring. Taylor Motter will continue to serve as Seattle's primary shortstop until probably Friday.

  • Rockies option Raimel Tapia back to AAA
    Rockies optioned OF Raimel Tapia to Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: Tapia went 0-for-7 during his short stay with the Rockies. The 23-year-old outfielder ranked as a top-100 prospect leading into the 2017 season, but he doesn't have the clearest path to a prominent role at the major league level at this moment. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:41 pm

  • Rutledge (hamstring) set for rehab games
    Josh Rutledge (hamstring) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Rutledge is batting third and serving as the DH for the PawSox. He should be ready to join Boston's active roster as a utility infielder over the weekend. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:56 pm
  • Donaldson (calf) is likely to miss 2-4 weeks
    According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, Josh Donaldson (calf) is likely to miss 2-4 weeks.

    Advice: Donaldson was placed on the disabled list on Friday after aggravating the right calf injury he originally suffered during spring training. The extended absence hurts, but will hopefully allow him to finally put the injury in the rear view mirror. The Blue Jays currently sit at 2-10 and are also missing Aaron Sanchez and J.A. Happ due to injury. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:47 am

  • 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. Taylor Motter has thrived during Segura's absence, but he'll soon slide into a utility role. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:24 am

  • David Peralta goes 4-for-5 in win
    David Peralta went 4-for-5 with a triple and two RBI as the Diamondbacks topped the Dodgers 4-2 on Monday.

    Advice: The Diamondbacks had to be thinking about dropping Peralta out of the second spot in the order with him hitting .178/.224/.333 through 45 at-bats, but he had a great game there tonight. He still seems better suited for the fifth or sixth spot, and he might eventually find himself there if Chris Owings stays hot. While Peralta did up his average to .240 tonight, he has just two walks and three runs scored (two of which came on his own homers) through 12 games. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:05 pm
  • A's won't promote Franklin Barreto yet
    Athletics general manager David Forst said Monday that shortstop prospect Franklin Barreto is not under consideration for a promotion at this time.

    Advice: Marcus Semien will be sidelined for a while following wrist surgery, but the A's don't want to rush Barreto's development (or start his arbitration clock). Barreto, 21, is batting .310/.375/.524 with two homers in the early going for Triple-A Nashville. Oakland will go with Adam Rosales as their main shortstop for now, with Chad Pinder also mixed in.

  • Rosario goes 1-for-3
    Mets prospect Amed Rosario went 1-for-3 on Sunday for Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Rosario also walked and scored a run for Vegas on Sunday. He also picked up an error, if you're interested. He has zero extra-base hits on the year, but he's also hitting .357, and that's a pretty fair trade off for one of the top prospects in all of baseball. It's a 50-50 proposition as to whether or not he makes his debut in 2017. Rotoworld.com Apr 17, 11:34 am

  • Souza knocks in two runs in loss
    Steven Souza went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Monday’s loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Souza drove in a run with a ground out in the first inning before plating another run with a single in the seventh. The 27-year-old is hitting .320/.424/.520 to begin the season, but it’s worth noting that he has struck out 11 times in his last seven games after striking out just two times in his first seven games. Strikeouts have been a huge issue for him in the majors, so we wouldn’t expect him to continue at this pace. Rotoworld.com Apr 17, 11:16 am
  • Big day for Bellinger
    Dodgers prospect Cody Bellinger went 2-for-3 with a homer on Sunday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Bellinger also walked and scored two runs for the Dodgers. There's no question that the confines of the Pacific Coast League are friendly, but there's also no doubt that he's crushing the ball right now. He's also athletic enough to play the outfield, and at some point, the Dodgers are going to have to find somewhere for him to play. He might have more offensive upside than any prospect -- and yes, that includes Yoan Moncada. Rotoworld.com Apr 17, 10:01 am

  • Sandoval not in Monday's lineup
    Pablo Sandoval is not in Monday's lineup against the Rays.

    Advice: Marco Hernandez will get a start at the hot corner. The scuffling Sandoval has hit three home runs already, but he's batting just .143 with a .196 on-base percentage through 11 games. Rotoworld.com Apr 17, 6:22 am

  • Yoenis Cespedes hitless in his return
    Yoenis Cespedes (illness) was hitless in four at-bats with a pair of strikeouts in Saturday's game in Miami.

    Advice: While Cespedes is hitless over his past two games, fantasy owners cannot complain too vehemently. The Cuban slugger already has nine extra-base hits (three doubles, six homers) with 10 RBI through his first 12 outings while cruising along with a 1.148 OPS. Rotoworld.com Apr 15, 8:27 pm
  • Giancarlo Stanton does some yard work
    Giancarlo Stanton swatted a solo home run for his only hit in four at-bats Saturday against the Mets.

    Advice: Stanton's homer off reliever Fernando Salas proved to be the game winner. He has swatted all three of his homers with six of his season's eight RBI over the past four games. He'll look to stay hot against Matt Harvey on Sunday. However, the Mets pitcher has gotten the best of Stanton in their brief dealings, striking out Stanton eight times in 15 at-bats with just two singles allowed. Rotoworld.com Apr 15, 8:12 pm
  • Yoenis Cespedes returns to lineup Saturday
    Yoenis Cespedes (flu) has returned to the Mets' starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Cespedes sat out Friday's game due to flu-like symptoms but is right back in there against Adam Conley and the Marlins on Saturday. He has homered five times in his last three games and enters play on Saturday as one of the hottest hitters in the league in a juicy matchup against a weak southpaw. Make sure he's in your lineups. Rotoworld.com Apr 15, 12:48 pm
  • Andrew Toles homers against Arizona
    Andrew Toles went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer against the Diamondbacks on Friday.

    Advice: We're not at all sure Toles is the right option to lead off for the Dodgers, but he's showing ample power, with three homers in 30 at-bats to date. There's nothing to suggest Andre Ethier is coming back soon, so Toles will continue to start against righties for the foreseeable future. Rotoworld.com Apr 14, 10:23 pm
