  • Tyler Chatwood issues eight walks in loss
    Tyler Chatwood allowed four earned runs, three hits and eight walks in Saturday's loss against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Two of the walks Chatwood issued were with the bases loaded, and he managed to throw just 41 of his 88 pitches for strikes in the awful appearance. The Rockies are now 1-7 over his past eight outings against the Dodgers. He'll look to get back on track July 1 in Arizona, but he faces another difficult assignment opposite Zack Greinke.

  • Daniel Descalso finishes with three knocks
    Daniel Descalso posted three singles and two runs scored across four at-bats in Saturday's win against Philadelphia.

    Advice: Descalso has raised his average from .205 to .225 while posting three RBI over the past six games, but he is still best used in the deepest of NL-only fantasy play. He does have some usefulness for his positional versatility from an eligibility perspective. Rotoworld.com 52 minutes ago

  • Chris Herrmann drives in three Saturday
    Chris Herrmann finished 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored and three RBI in Saturday's win against the Phillies.

    Advice: Herrmann has picked up the pace, going 7-for-23 (.304) with a pair of doubles, a home run and six RBI over the past eight outings. He has raised his average from .151 to .183 just since June 9, but he still has a lot of work to do at the plate before he is viability outside of the deepest of NL fantasy formats.

  • Cameron Perkins continues to scuffle
    Cameron Perkins was hitless in four at-bats with a strikeout in Saturday's loss in Arizona.

    Advice: Perkins was in the leadoff spot on Saturday, but he didn't do anything to set the table. The rookie's average tumbled to .105, as he how has just two singles over 19 at-bats (.105) while driving in two runs. The good news is he isn't striking out, but he also hasn't drawn a walk in his time up with the big club. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:05 pm
  • Ben Lively loses start, hits home run
    Ben Lively allowed five runs - four earned - and seven hits with no walks or strikeouts over 5 1/3 innings in a loss at Arizona on Saturday.

    Advice: Lively cracked a two-run homer off of his counterpart Robbie Ray, but Odubel Herrera didn't help him out with a costly error and Lively managed just 50 strikes on 79 pitches in a shaky outing. He had a quality start and a no-decision against Arizona in the first meeting June 18, but was unable to replicate those results. He hasn't won since his debut June 3, a span of five outings.

  • Sam Gaviglio posts quality start in loss
    Sam Gaviglio allowed two earned runs, six hits and three walks with three strikeouts over six innings in a loss against the Astros on Saturday.

    Advice: Gaviglio has managed a 3-2 record with a 3.38 ERA through nine appearances (eight starts). It's uncertain what his role will be once Hisashi Iwakuma (shoulder) is ready to return, but the right-hander certainly has proven he belongs at the big league level in some capacity.

  • Ramirez stifles Red Sox to earn seventh win
    J.C. Ramirez kept the Red Sox to one run over six innings Saturday, leading the Angels to a 6-3 victory.

    Advice: Ramirez gave up just four hits, one of which was a Mitch Moreland solo home run for the only Sox run against him. He also didn't walk a batter while striking out five. A lot of the shine has worn off the 28-year-old since his surprising start to the season, but he's still 7-5 with a passable 4.38 ERA in 17 appearances. Another tough test is on tap for Thursday, when the Angels travel "across town" to face the Dodgers in an interleague battle. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:23 pm
  • Moreland hits 10th homer in loss to Angels
    Mitch Moreland hit his 10th home run of the season in a loss to the Angels on Saturday.

    Advice: Moreland's solo dong off Angels starter J.C. Ramirez tied the game at 1-1 in the second, but the Sox wouldn't muster much more en route to the loss. Moreland now has 38 RBI and 37 runs scored to go with those 10 homers. He's hitting .266/.359/.463 through 69 games in his first season with the Boston club. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:19 pm
  • Young contributes RBI double, steal vs. Sox
    Eric Young Jr. had an RBI double, a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: Young poked a run-scoring double down the right field line in the fourth inning to give the Angels a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The steal was his seventh in nine tries this year, all of which have come since the 32-year-old was promoted in late May to fill in during Mike Trout's absence. While he could be shipped back out when Trout returns, Young has performed admirably for the Halos, batting .289/.379/.461 in 24 games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:16 pm
  • Franklin Barreto homers in big league debut
    Franklin Barreto drilled his first career homer Saturday in Oakland’s 10-2 win over the White Sox.

    Advice: Barreto put Oakland ahead 6-0 with a two-run shot off James Shields in the third inning. He also singled to center field in the fifth and scored on a bases-loaded walk later in the frame. Barreto did commit an error at second base but it was still an impressive debut for the 21-year-old. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:16 pm
  • Brian Johnson close to beginning mound work
    Brian Johnson (shoulder) will throw off a mound on Sunday.

    Advice: It will be his first mound work since landing on the disabled list earlier this work. Johnson was able to throw off flat ground on Saturday. With Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) nearing a return, Johnson will probably head back to the minors once he's activated. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:56 pm

  • Pirates outright Josh Lindblom to Triple-A
    Pirates sent RHP Josh Lindblom outright to Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: Lindblom had been rehabbing his injury at Triple-A already. This move removes him from the club's 40-man roster. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:46 am

  • Franklin Barreto not in A's lineup Saturday
    Franklin Barreto is not in the Athletics starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: It's unclear if it's a logistical thing and he wasn't able to get to the ballpark on time after being recalled on Saturday, or if the A's simply want to ease him into action. Adam Rosales is starting at shortstop and batting ninth for the A's against James Shields and the White Sox. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:17 am
  • A's promote top prospect Franklin Barreto
    Athletics recalled SS Franklin Barreto from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: The club's top prospect, the 21-year-old Barreto was hitting .281/.326/.428 with eight homers, 32 RBI and four stolen bases at Triple-A. He'll function as the team's primary shortstop until Marcus Semien is ready to return from the disabled list. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:26 am
  • Nomar Mazara not in Rangers lineup Saturday
    Nomar Mazara is absent from the Rangers starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Yankees.

    Advice: It looks to be just a routine day of rest for the hard-hitting outfielder. He's hitting .271/.340/.451 with 10 homers and 46 RBI through 68 games this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:19 am
  • Gallo hitless in loss to Yankees
    Joey Gallo finished 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Friday’s extra-inning loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Gallo had a big day at the plate on Wednesday, but he’s 0-for-8 with six strikeouts since. The 23-year-old slugger is hitting just .155 (9-for-58) with three home runs and 24 strikeouts this month. He still leads the Rangers with 19 home runs, but his batting average is down to .194 on the year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:37 pm

  • Jaso slugs go-ahead homer vs. Cardinals
    John Jaso slugged a go-ahead solo homer in the ninth inning to lead the Pirates to a 4-3 victory over the Cardinals.

    Advice: After entering the game as a defensive replacement in the eighth inning, Jaso took Seung-Hwan Oh deep with two outs in the top of the ninth. Felipe Rivero tossed a scoreless bottom of the frame to finish off the wild win. Jaso is now hitting .234/.319/.421 with five homers and 19 RBI through 62 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:29 pm

  • Gallo goes 3-for-4 with a bomb vs Blue Jays
    Joey Gallo went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and three runs scored in a loss to the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

    Advice: Gallo is known for his prodigious power but his home run today was actually of the inside-the-park variety. He hit the ball the opposite way and the left fielder crashed into the wall trying to catch it. Gallo circled the bases and glided home without a throw before the shortstop could run out and retrieve the ball. He also doubled twice in the ballgame. The multi-hit night enabled him to boost his batting average above the Mendoza line. He is batting .201/.298/.522 with 19 home runs and 39 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:12 pm

  • Sam Gaviglio scheduled to start Saturday
    Sam Gaviglio is scheduled to start Saturday's game against the Astros.

    Advice: The Mariners had been hoping that Hisashi Iwakuma (shoulder) would be ready to rejoin the rotation this weekend, but he will need at least one more rehab start, giving Gaviglio an additional opportunity. In eight appearances (seven starts) this season, the 27-year-old right-hander has posted a respectable 3.43 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 25/12 K/BB ratio across 39 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:35 pm
  • Nomar Mazara clubs 10th homer in win Tuesday
    Nomar Mazara clubbed his 10th home run as the Rangers walloped the Blue Jays on Tuesday night in Texas.

    Advice: Mazara was dropped to the eighth spot in the lineup against opposing left-hander Francisco Liriano and responded by tagging him for a solo homer in the fifth inning. He finished his evening 1-for-3 and is hitting .279/.346/.467 with 10 homers and 46 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:55 pm
  • Cameron Perkins called up by Phillies
    Phillies purchased the contract of INF/OF Cameron Perkins from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Perkins, 26, has batted .298/.388/.476 with six homers for Lehigh Valley this season. He can play the corner infield and outfield spots and should get some starts in left field against southpaws. Perkins will be making his major league debut. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:02 pm
  • Sam Gaviglio posts no-decision on Monday
    Sam Gaviglio allowed two earned runs, three hits and four walks with just one strikeout over five innings in a no-decision against the Tigers on Monday.

    Advice: Gaviglio labored through this start, throwing just 46 of his 84 pitches for strikes. He still has a respectable 3.43 ERA overall, and he hasn't lost in five starts dating back to May 24 in Washington. Gaviglio was called up from Triple-A Tacoma in mid-May with several rotation members injured, but may have done enough to carve out a roll for himself in the Emerald City for the long haul. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:28 pm
  • J.C. Ramirez flattened for five runs by KC
    J.C. Ramirez yielded five runs on five hits over three-plus innings in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Control proved to be Ramirez's bugaboo in this one, as he walked four and threw just 52 of his 89 pitches for strikes. As for the run-scoring damage on his watch, Ramirez allowed a bases-clearing RBI double to Mike Moustakas in the third inning, then put the first two runners on in the fourth before being relieved of duty. Both of those runners would come home to score courtesy of the bullpen. Ramirez will carry an unimpressive 4.59 ERA and 1.33 WHIP into a road start against the Red Sox next time he toes the rubber. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:14 pm
  • Joey Gallo strikes out thrice in loss to M's
    Joey Gallo went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Gallo will do that from time to time. He is hitting .194/.291/.502 with 18 homers and 38 RBI on the season, but while the production remains on the power front overall, he has largely struggled this month. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:04 pm

  • Lively overcomes rough first inning on Sunday
    Ben Lively overcame a rough first inning to log a quality start on Sunday, allowing three runs on eight hits over six innings against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: The rookie right-hander struck out six on the day while walking just one. He rebounded from a rough first inning in which Paul Goldschmidt blasted a two-run homer and Chris Owings followed with a solo shot, settling in nicely afterwards and allowing his team to catch up. Through his first four starts, Lively owns a 3.33 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 11/8 K/BB ratio across 27 innings. He draws a difficult assignment his next time out, facing this same Diamondbacks' team in Arizona on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:34 pm
  • Chatwood survives four walks in victory
    Tyler Chatwood walked four but limited the Giants to just two runs on five hits over six innings while taking a no-decision in Sunday's win.

    Advice: Chatwood was not at his sharpest in terms of control (62 strikes in 114 pitches), but the Giants were mostly unable to capitalize on his inability to find the strike zone. The only run-scoring damage on his line came in the form of a two-run home run surrendered to Brandon Crawford in the fifth inning. He will bring a 4.08 ERA and 1.30 WHIP into a road start against the Dodgers next time he toes the rubber. The road warrior holds a 2.41 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in eight starts away from Coor's Field this season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:30 pm
  • Descalso goes 2-for-4 with an RBI, two runs
    Daniel Descalso went 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Phillies on Saturday.

    Advice: The 30-year-old veteran walked and scored in the third inning, doubled and was left stranded in the fifth and then delivered an RBI single and scored in the seventh. He has received a fair amount of playing time as a utility infielder for Arizona this year. He is batting .215/.326/.388 with five homers and 21 RBI in 141 plate appearances.

  • Moreland (toe) back in Red Sox lineup Thurs.
    Mitch Moreland (toe) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup Thursday against the Phillies.

    Advice: Moreland took a ball off his left big toe on Tuesday night and sat out Wednesday's game, but he's good to go for Thursday's series finale in Philadelphia. Hanley Ramirez is on the bench and Moreland is at first base with no DH available at Citizens Bank Park. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:05 pm
  • Brian Johnson (shoulder) lands on 10-day DL
    Red Sox placed LHP Brian Johnson on the 10-day disabled list with a left shoulder impingement.

    Advice: Johnson suffered the injury in the third inning of his start Wednesday night against the Phillies. He was officially charged with three earned runs over 2 2/3 frames, raising his season ERA to 4.29. There is no current timetable for his return. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:30 am

  • Sam Gaviglio gives up three homers in win
    Sam Gaviglio yielded four runs and three homers in 5 1/3 innings Wednesday in a win over the Twins.

    Advice: Gaviglio is the eighth pitcher this year to give up three homers and win anyway. He's now surrendered nine homers in 34 1/3 innings for Seattle, yet he has a fine 3.41 ERA anyway. He remains a weak bet going forward. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:31 pm
