  • Brandon Phillips (knee) to return Tuesday
    Brandon Phillips (knee) is expected to return to the Braves' lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Phillips is still sore after fouling a ball off his knee Sunday, so he's sitting out Monday. He could pinch-hit, though, and will be used in the designated hitter spot in Anaheim on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:19 pm

  • Flores goes 3-for-4, now batting .313
    Wilmer Flores finished 3-for-4 with a run scored in the Mets' 4-2 win over the Brewers on Monday.

    Advice: Flores has an impressive .313/.340/.458 batting line in 33 games (96 at-bats) this season for New York. He probably deserves more playing time. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:18 pm

  • Chase Utley homers, singles in victory
    Chase Utley singled and swatted a solo homer Monday in St. Louis.

    Advice: Utley got the scoring going with a long blast off of Mike Leake that went over the right-center field wall. The veteran second baseman has been playing regularly of late with Justin Turner (hamstring) out and has hit .324 with three homers over his last 11 games. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:16 pm

  • Phillies activate Howie Kendrick from DL
    Phillies activated INF/OF Howie Kendrick from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: Kendrick ended up missing six weeks with an oblique strain. He'll start in left field and bat second in his return Monday, but will function in a roving utility role moving forward. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:09 pm

  • Ryan Schimpf blasts 13th homer to lead Padres
    Ryan Schimpf blasted his 13th home run on Sunday, helping to lead the Padres to a 5-3 victory over the Nationals.

    Advice: His two-run blast off of Joe Ross put the Padres ahead to stay in the first inning. He finished the afternoon 1-for-5 and is now hitting .163/.294/.442 with 13 bombs and 24 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:20 pm

  • Chase d'Arnaud plates two in win on Sunday
    Chase d'Arnaud went 2-for-4 and drove in two runs on Sunday as the Padres topped the Nationals.

    Advice: Drawing a start at shortstop in this one, d'Arnaud delivered a two-run single in the fifth inning that increased the Padres' advantage to 5-2. He's now hitting .350/.409/.400 in his limited action this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:02 pm

  • Enrique Hernandez mashes three-run homer
    Enrique Hernandez went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Cubs.

    Advice: Hernandez's three-run home run off Jon Lester in the third inning gave the Dodgers a 6-1 lead. He has been touching home plate quite a bit as of late, having scored six runs in his last four games. In that space, he has also collected two doubles (plus Sunday's home run). Overall, the versatile 25-year-old is slashing .253/.324/.535 with four homers and 16 RBI in 44 games played. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:46 pm

  • Brandon Drury has three hits in loss Sunday
    Brandon Drury went 3-for-3 with a run scored and an RBI as the Diamondbacks fell to the Brewers on Sunday afternoon.

    Advice: Drury plated a run with a sacrifice fly in the eighth inning, pulling the Diamondbacks to within four runs at 8-4. All three of his hits in the contest were singles. He has handled the transition to second base beautifully this season and is slashing a healthy .299/.337/.463 with four homers and 19 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:29 pm

  • Garcia socks solo home run in loss to Rockies
    Greg Garcia went 1-for-4 with a long solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: Garcia came through with a solo home run off German Marquez with one out in the sixth inning to draw the Cardinals within 4-2. It was an absolute monster shot, traveling an estimated 462 feet to right. The Rockies managed to hang onto the lead through to the end of the contest, though. In 70 at-bats, the 27-year-old infielder is hitting .261/.370/.362 with one homer and three RBI. Even with the ball launched into orbit off his bat on Sunday, there is no fantasy intrigue here.

  • Andrew Romine hits RBI triple against CWS
    Andrew Romine went 2-for-4 with an RBI triple in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Romine picked up an RBI triple against Miguel Gonzalez in the eighth inning. It was his second three-bagger of the season and bumped his RBI total to 12. While he has turned in multi-hit performances in two of his last three games, he is still hitting an uninspiring .238/.316/.369 over the course of 122 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:39 pm

  • Howie Kendrick expected to return on Monday
    Howie Kendrick is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

    Advice: Where, or how much, he'll play upon his return remains up in the air. His injury allowed Aaron Altherr to seize a starting job in the Phillies' outfield and he has turned into perhaps their best hitter. Look for Kendrick to function in some sort of utility role.

  • Kolten Wong (elbow) placed on disabled list
    Cardinals placed 2B Kolten Wong on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 27, with a left elbow strain.

    Advice: Wong first injured his elbow a week ago and it apparently just hasn't healed as hoped. He'll undergo an MRI on Monday in St. Louis to determine the severity of the injury. Greg Garcia and Jhonny Peralta will get more playing time with Wong out, and call-up Paul DeJong is also an option. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:13 am

  • Chase Utley turns back clock on Saturday
    Chase Utley went 2-for-4 with three RBI in Saturday's win against the Cubs.

    Advice: Utley has pieced together a modest three-game hitting streak and he has driven in at least one run (five total RBI) during the span. The veteran second baseman has driven in 12 runs over his past 15 games to re-emerge as a useful fantasy option in most NL-only leagues and some deeper mixed formats. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:40 pm

  • Kolten Wong scratched with elbow stiffness
    Updating an earlier report, Kolten Wong was scratched from Saturday's game against the Rockies with left elbow stiffness.

    Advice: It's the same injury that sidelined Wong earlier this week. Greg Garcia is starting at second base on Saturday and would likely draw another start there if Wong can't go on Sunday. Until we hear otherwise, consider Wong day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:20 pm

    Kolten Wong was a late scratch Saturday against the Rockies.

    Advice: No reason was given for his absence, though it's possible Wong aggravated an elbow injury that was bothering him earlier in the week. Greg Garcia drew the start at second base. We'll let you know as soon as the Cardinals update his status. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:40 pm

  • Romine goes 2-for-4 with a walk vs White Sox
    Andrew Romine went 2-for-4 and worked a walk during the first game of Saturday's doubleheader versus the White Sox.

    Advice: His two singles represented half the hits his club could manage in the ballgame, so it is no surprise they failed to score. The veteran utility man has played every position except pitcher and catcher for the Tigers this year. He has a .228 batting average with two home runs, 18 runs scored and 11 RBI in 129 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:27 pm

  • Ryan Schimpf clubs solo homer in loss to Nats
    Ryan Schimpf clubbed a solo home run off of Max Scherzer in a losing effort against the Nationals on Friday.

    Advice: His solo shot in the fourth inning would account for the Padres' only offense in the ballgame. He finished the night 1-for-3 plus a walk. The epitome of a three true outcome hitter, Schimpf is now hitting .167/.304/.442 with 12 homers and 22 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:39 pm

  • Utley launches first homer of season in win
    Chase Utley went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Utley had not hit a home run entering action on Thursday, but he finally got that monkey off his back when he socked a solo shot off Michael Wacha in the second inning. The veteran second baseman acts as a nice clubhouse presence, but not so much with the bat, as he is slashing a mere .204/.292/.312 on the season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:23 pm

  • Flores goes 2-for-4 with three RBI vs Padres
    Wilmer Flores went 2-for-4 with three RBI and a run scored in a loss to the Padres on Wednesday.

    Advice: He stroked a base-loaded double to plate three runs in the third inning, then came around to score on a Curtis Granderson single. He also worked a walk in the ballgame. The 25-year-old Flores now has a .307 batting average with three home runs and 14 RBI in 91 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:21 pm

  • Kolten Wong (elbow) returns to lineup
    Kolten Wong (elbow) is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Wong was forced out of action on Saturday due to mild discomfort in his left elbow. After sitting out several games to start the week, he will be back at second second base and is hitting eighth in Wednesday's contest. Mike Leake will take the ball for the Cards in this one, to be opposed by Rich Hill. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:59 pm

  • Kendrick (oblique) will need four games
    Howie Kendrick (oblique) will play in a minimum of four games during his minor league rehab assignment.

    Advice: Kendrick will be moving around from left field, third base and first base during his assignment, which is set to begin on Wednesday. He could be activated next week if he does not experience any setbacks. The veteran has not played since April 15 due to a strained oblique muscle. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:45 pm

  • Howie Kendrick (oblique) set for rehab games
    Howie Kendrick (oblique) is set to begin a minor league rehab assignment Wednesday with Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Kendrick received clearance to play in minor league games after taking outdoor batting practice on Tuesday at Citizens Bank Park. He's been out since April 15, so the Phillies will probably have him stay at Triple-A through the weekend to get properly tuned up. Kendrick was batting .333/.395/.487 over his first 43 plate appearances this season with the Phils. The versatile veteran should get something close to everyday playing time when he returns.

  • Ryan Schimpf hits 11th homer
    Ryan Schimpf homered, walked and struck out against the Mets on Tuesday.

    Advice: Of course he did. After seemingly briefly losing the third-base gig to Cory Spangenberg, Schimpf seems to have the advantage there again now. It helps that Spangenberg has been pretty awful. Schimpf is hitting just .169, but he still has nearly 200 points of OPS on Spangenberg (.746 to .553). Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:37 pm

  • Wong (elbow) out of Cardinals lineup Tuesday
    Kolten Wong (elbow) remains out of the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Wong remains day-to-day with mild discomfort in his left elbow. He was probably going to sit anyway with the Dodgers throwing left-hander Clayton Kershaw. Jedd Gyorko is starting at second base and batting cleanup. Jhonny Peralta is at third base and batting sixth. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:07 pm

    Howie Kendrick (oblique) could begin a minor league rehab assignment later this week.

    Advice: Kendrick took outdoor batting practice Tuesday for the first time since straining an oblique muscle in mid-April. He still has some boxes to check before the Phillies can map out an exact timetable for his return to the active roster. Aaron Altherr has run away with the Phillies' starting left field job over the last month. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:16 pm

  • Ryan Schimpf connects for solo home run
    Ryan Schimpf went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Schimpf socked a solo homer off Zack Godley to lead off the fifth inning. The dinger was his 10th of the season. Despite respectable enough counting stats (the 10 homers, 20 RBI), the 29-year-old third baseman is hitting just .165/.303/.417 this season. Rotoworld.com May 21, 5:14 pm

    Advice: Wong tweaked his left (non-throwing) elbow on a swing Saturday. He's day-to-day. Greg Garcia is filling in at second base. The Cards are also giving Jedd Gyorko and Stephen Piscotty days off, as Jhonny Peralta is at third base and Tommy Pham and Randal Grichuk are occupying the corner outfield spots.

    Greg Garcia entered Saturday's game against the Giants and he finished 3-for-4 with a double.

    Advice: Garcia was forced into action when Kolten Wong (elbow) left with discomfort in his left elbow. If Wong is forced to miss time then Garcia might see regular starts, either at the hot corner or second base. Rotoworld.com May 20, 10:18 pm

    Advice: Schimpf is hitting a miserable .161 right now and could probably use a night off to clear his head. Cory Spangenberg will man the hot corner and bat seventh Saturday against D'Backs left-hander Robbie Ray. Rotoworld.com May 20, 4:22 pm

  • Utley picks up pair of hits, drives in two
    Chase Utley went 2-for-2 with two RBI and a stolen base in Thursday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Utley also drew a walk in the contest. He was feeling frisky on the basepaths, attempting two steals on the evening. He went 1-for-2 in those attempts, with the successful one counting as his second of the season. While the veteran infielder has picked up hits in three of his last four games, he sports an uninspiring .216/.314/.311 triple-slash overall. Rotoworld.com May 18, 10:49 pm
