  • Mets activate Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) from DL
    Mets activated C Travis d'Arnaud from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: A bone bruise on his right wrist sidelined d'Arnaud in early May. With his activation, he will be available to pinch-hit during Wednesday's game against the Padres -- and is expected to start on Thursday. Prior to going down injured, the backstop was hitting .203/.288/.475 with four homers and 16 RBI across 22 games played. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:51 pm
  • Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) to be activated Wed.
    Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) is expected to be activated from the disabled list prior to Wednesday's game against the Padres.

    Advice: While Rene Rivera will be drawing the start at catcher on Wednesday, d'Arnaud's imminent activation would make him available as a pinch-hitting option. He is expected to be in the starting lineup for Thursday's series finale vs. the Padres. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:26 pm
  • Swihart (finger) ready for extended spring
    Blake Swihart (finger) is in Fort Meyers and will begin to take part in extended spring training games.

    Advice: Swihart has not played since April 29 due to a bruised finger. A concrete timetable for his return to minor league games has yet to clarify, but given that he is now working in extended spring training, he looks to be pretty close. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:00 pm

  • Chris Herrmann launches fifth homer
    Chris Herrmann finished 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's game against the White Sox.

    Advice: Herrmann has homered in three consecutive starts, posting four RBI during the span. While Jeff Mathis is superior defensively, Herrmann's bat is coming alive and he is making it hard for skipper Torey Lovullo to keep the backstop on the bench. He remains a No. 2 fantasy option in NL-only leagues with some power upside. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:07 pm
  • Juan Centeno goes deep on Tuesday
    Juan Centeno hit a solo homer and reached base three times Tuesday versus the Tigers.

    Advice: The 27-year-old journeyman was making his first start in the majors this season, as he came up when Brian McCann went on the 7-day concussion DL. Even after the nice night, Centeno might be lucky to get one more start before McCann returns. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:34 pm
  • Andrew Knapp hits second homer
    Andrew Knapp hit his second homer and walked Tuesday against the Rockies.

    Advice: The Phillies are searching all over for offense and Knapp has been very good, hitting .261 with an .848 OPS in 46 at-bats. Still, starting catcher Cameron Rupp hasn't been a problem -- he has a .776 OPS -- and there's not really any way for the Phillies to play both of them. Knapp figures to remain a backup.

  • Braves outright Anthony Recker to Gwinnett
    Braves sent C Anthony Recker outright to Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Recker was designated for assignment by Atlanta on Sunday to clear a 40-man roster spot following the Matt Adams trade. The 33-year-old catcher is a .199/.283/.348 career hitter at the major league level. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:08 pm

  • Blue Jays outright Michael Ohlman to AAA
    Blue Jays sent C Michael Ohlman outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

  • Orioles outright C Francisco Peńa to Triple-A
    Orioles sent C Francisco Peńa outright to Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: Peńa cleared waivers after being designated for assignment last week. The 27-year-old has appeared in 17 games with the Orioles over the past two seasons and will continue to provide depth behind the plate in the minors. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:31 am

  • D'Arnaud hitless in latest rehab game
    Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) went 0-for-3 and caught six innings Monday in his latest minor league rehab game with Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: D'Arnaud is now 5-for-17 (.294) during his minor league rehab assignment while working his back from a bone bruise in his wrist. He's set to catch Steven Matz (elbow) on Tuesday, but he could be cleared to rejoin the Mets after that. The question is how the playing time will shake out with Rene Rivera, who has been surprisingly productive at the plate. D'Arnaud was batting .203/.288/.475 with four home runs an 16 RBI over 22 games prior to the injury. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:37 am
  • Tuffy Gosewisch optioned to Triple-A
    Mariners optioned C Tuffy Gosewisch to Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Gosewisch looked overmatched in his stint with the big club, going 2-for-28 with a 14/1 K/BB ratio. Mike Zunino has replaced him on the roster. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:04 pm

  • Mariners recall Mike Zunino from Triple-A
    Mariners recalled C Mike Zunino from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Zunino was sent down earlier this month after hitting just .167/.250/.236 with no homers and a 30/6 K/BB ratio, but he's earned another shot after batting .293/.356/.707 with five homers in 12 games at Tacoma. He'll go back to seeing the lion's share of starts at catcher for the Mariners and remains an intriguing power bat, but obviously he's far from a safe bet. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:03 pm
  • Sanchez (foot) experiences setback
    Hector Sanchez (foot) has experienced a setback during his minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Sanchez, who went down with a foot contusion earlier this month, began a rehab assignment on Friday and went 2-for-9 with two walks over the weekend. No word on the severity of the setback or when he'll be able to return to action. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:01 pm

  • Mejia homers
    Indians prospect Francisco Mejia homered on Sunday for Double-A Akron.

    Advice: It was the third homer of the year for the switch-hitting catcher. After establishing himself as one of the best catching prospects in baseball, Mejia has continued to hit in 2017, and he's shown more power than anticipated in the process. He's also a competent defender with a strong throwing arm behind the plate, so you don't have to worry about him moving positions. If he's still available in your dynasty league, you should pick him up immediately, and make fun of your friends for not doing so earlier. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:42 am

  • D'Arnaud (wrist) has three hits in rehab game
    Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) went 3-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI, and a run scored Sunday in a rehab game with Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: D'Arnaud, who is working back from a bone bruise in his wrist, is now 5-for-14 (.357) during his minor league rehab assignment. The expectation is that he will stick around to catch Steven Matz (elbow) on Tuesday, but he's not far off. Rene Rivera has been red-hot during his absence, so it will be interesting to see how Terry Collins balances the playing time moving forward. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:42 am
  • Chris Gimenez goes deep in win on Sunday
    Chris Gimenez crushed his first home run of the season as the Twins beat the Royals in the second game of Sunday's doubleheader.

    Advice: His solo shot in the fourth inning increased the Twins' advantage to 6-3. He finished the afternoon 1-for-4 and is now hitting .200/.321/.333 with three RBI in his limited action this season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:50 pm
  • Chris Iannetta clobbers solo home run vs. SDP
    Chris Iannetta went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Padres.

    Advice: This was Iannetta's first game in the lineup since being sidelined by a pitch to the face about a week ago. While he sustained a lacerated upper lip, fractured teeth and a broken nose on that hit-by-pitch, he looked no worse for the wear in his return, socking a solo home run off Zack Godley with one out in the third inning during Sunday's contest. Prior to going down injured, the veteran backstop had been hitting .220/.292/.390 with three homers and six RBI over the course of 20 games played. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:05 pm
  • Juan Centeno called up from Triple-A
    Astros purchased the contract of C Juan Centeno from Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: He'll provide depth with Brian McCann (concussion) out. Centeno, 27, was off to a nice .368/.395/.487 start for Fresno. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:41 am
  • Anthony Recker designated for assignment
    Braves designated C Anthony Recker for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Matt Adams. Recker is a defensive-minded career .199/.283/.348 hitter. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:15 am

  • Chris Herrmann belts fourth homer
    Chris Herrmann finished 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Saturday's game in San Diego.

    Advice: Herrmann has back-to-back games with a pair of hits and a home run, showing some signs of life at a position which has been a bugaboo for the Diamondbacks. He finally inched his batting average back over the Mendoza line for the first time since May 2. He remains a No. 2 receiver option in deeper NL-only fantasy leagues, but he could change that outlook if he continues to stay hot. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:35 am
  • Travis d'Arnaud to catch nine on Sunday
    Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) made a pinch-hitting appearance for Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday and will catch nine innings on Sunday.

    Advice: D'Arnaud is expected to need a few days before he is able to return, and Sunday's stint behind the dish will go a long way in determining if he needs extra time or not. Wait to see him officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks before plugging him back into the active fantasy lineup. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:54 pm
  • Mesoraco homers, drives in two against Rox
    Devin Mesoraco went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Rockies on Saturday.

    Advice: Mesoraco connected for a solo shot off reliever Chad Qualls in the sixth inning. The dinger was the second of the year for the 28-year-old, and his first since May 3. It appears health will always be a concern as it relates to Mesoraco, but he's still one of the best-hitting catchers in the league when on the field, batting .289/.400/.474 in 15 games this season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:45 pm
  • D'Backs activate Chris Iannetta from DL
    Diamondbacks activated C Chris Iannetta from the 7-day concussion disabled list.

    Advice: Iannetta was drilled in the face by a 93 mph fastball, resulting in a lacerated upper lip, fractured teeth and a broken nose. Luckily those injuries only kept him out for about a week. Silvino Bracho was sent down to make room for him. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:22 pm
  • Blue Jays designate Ohlman for assignment
    Blue Jays designated C Michael Ohlman for assignment.

    Advice: Ohlman spent a little over a week in the big leagues while filling in for injured catcher Russell Martin. He went 2-for-9 in that span with an RBI and three strikeouts. Ohlman could stick around as minor league depth if he clears waivers. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:46 pm

  • Mesoraco returns to Reds lineup on Saturday
    Devin Mesoraco (hamstring) has returned to the Reds starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Rockies.

    Advice: The oft-injured backstop had been on the shelf since leaving Sunday's game against the Giants due to a tight hamstring. He's hitting eighth against Antonio Senzatela and the Rockies. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:33 am
  • Devin Mesoraco strikes out as pinch hitter
    Devin Mesoraco (hamstring) struck out as a pinch hitter in Friday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: Mesoraco hadn't played since he left Sunday's series finale against the Giants due to tightness in his hamstring. He's making steady improvements though and should return to action behind the plate at some point over the weekend. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:19 am
  • Servais expects Mike Zunino back soon
    Mariners manager Scott Servais said Thursday that he expects Mike Zunino back in the majors "in a short amount of time."

    Advice: Zunino was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma two weeks ago after hitting just .167/.250/.236 with no homers and a 30/6 K/BB ratio. He's hit an underwhelming .222/.323/.481 at Tacoma, but with Carlos Ruiz (.119/.255/.167) and Tuffy Gosewisch (.048/.091/.048) performing so poorly the M's could give Zunino another shot soon. Zunino remains an intriguing power bat at catcher, but obviously it's hard to trust him for fantasy purposes at this point. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:43 am
  • Travis d'Arnaud goes 2-4 in rehab game
    Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) went 2-for-4 Thursday in his first rehab game for High-A St. Lucie.

    Advice: He also caught seven innings behind the plate. D'Arnaud landed on the DL with a bruised wrist earlier this month but should be back with the Mets sometime next week. Rene Rivera has done most of the catching during his absence. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:47 pm
  • Hector Sanchez (foot) set for rehab games
    Hector Sanchez (foot) has been cleared to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: He'll remain with El-Paso through the weekend before likely returning to the Padres' active roster early next week. Assuming no setbacks. Sanchez has been on the disabled list since May 6 because of a right foot contusion. It's possible San Diego will opt to keep Luis Torrens as the backup to starting catcher Austin Hedges.

  • Mesoraco says hamstring is '75-80 percent'
    Devin Mesoraco (hamstring) said Thursday that his hamstring is "75-80 percent."

    Advice: Mesoraco hasn't appeared in a game since leaving Sunday's series finale against the Giants with hamstring tightness. If he doesn't show significant improvement by Friday, the Reds will likely place him back on the disabled list. Mesoraco has logged just 13 games this year and 52 total games since the beginning of the 2015 season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:04 am
  • Herrmann sinks Mets with solo homer in 11th
    Chris Herrmann socked a walk-off solo home run in the 11th inning of Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Mets.

    Advice: Facing off with Rafael Montero to lead off the bottom of the 11th inning, Herrmann connected for a long, no-doubt solo bomb to center field to send the fans home happy. Earlier in the game he also doubled and drew a walk. The 29-year-old backstop is hitting just .185/.279/.370 in 30 games this season and offers no fantasy upside, but will have at least one heroic moment to look back on come the end of the 2017 season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:33 pm
  • Orioles DFA catcher Francsico Pena
    Orioles designated C Francisco Peńa for assignment.

    Advice: Peńa was 4-for-7 with two home runs in three games for Baltimore, but he got the boot Wednesday with Welington Castillo (shoulder) back from the disabled list. The 27-year-old catcher will likely draw some interest on waivers. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:55 pm
