  • Danny Santana continues to struggle
    Danny Santana went 1-for-4 with a triple, RBI and a strikeout in Saturday's game in San Francisco.

    Advice: The triple was nice, and the veteran has hit safely in three of the past four games, but he is still hitting a paltry .115 with just three hits across 26 at-bats (.115) since being acquired from the Twins. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:14 am
  • Tommy Pham shines in Saturday's start
    Tommy Pham finished 3-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk in Saturday's win in Colorado.

    Advice: Pham was in the lineup with Stephen Piscotty tending to a personal matter, and he continues to produce. He has amassed six hits over his past 10 at-bats and is slashing .339/.411/.597 over 62 at-bats. However, once Piscotty is back you can expect Pham's playing time to dry up.

  • John Jaso provides late heroics in win
    John Jaso finished 2-for-2 with a pair of RBI in Saturday's win against the Mets.

    Advice: Jaso came on as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning and delivered an RBI single to force extra innings. He also singled home the winning run in the bottom of the 10th to send the Steel City crowd home happy. Jaso has picked up the pace with six hits over his past 15 at-bats, raising his average from .176 to .210 just since May 21. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:49 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 Yesterday, 7:20 pm
  • Kolten Wong a late scratch against Colorado
    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 Yesterday, 6:40 pm
  • Taylor smokes two-run bomb vs Padres
    Michael Taylor went 2-for-4 with a two-run jack in a win over the Padres on Saturday.

    Advice: His blast off Padres' starter Clayton Richard broke open a 1-0 game and gave the Nationals some breathing room in the sixth inning. It was his second game in a row with a two-run homer. Taylor doesn't get to play every day but has hit well when given the chance. He is batting .274/.308/.460 with four homers and 13 RBI in 113 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:16 pm
  • Jarrod Dyson rips two hits in loss to Red Sox
    Jarrod Dyson notched two hits Saturday in the Mariners’ 6-0 loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: He provided two of the Mariners’ five hits and also added his AL-leading 14th stolen base. Dyson only saw seven pitches in his three at-bats, so he obviously came out ready to swing. The 32-year-old has always been a one-trick pony, providing elite speed and little else. He had just one hit in his previous 14 at-bats prior to Saturday’s outburst. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:56 pm
  • Rosario goes 2-for-3 with a solo homer Sat.
    Eddie Rosario went 2-for-3 and lined a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: His homer off Rays' starter Jake Odorizzi tied the game at two runs apiece in the fourth inning. The 25-year-old outfielder has a .257 batting average with four home runs and 12 RBI in 43 games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:16 pm
  • Rasmus hits solo home run vs Twins Sat.
    Colby Rasmus went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in a loss against the Twins on Saturday.

    Advice: He did not start the game because the Twins were starting a left-hander. He was called upon to pinch-hit for Peter Bourjos leading off the seventh inning. He grounded out in that at-bat and then hit the home run in the ninth inning off Twins closer Brandon Kintzler. Rasmus missed the first month of the season with a hip injury but has played well since being activated. He is batting .254/.315/.582 with six homers and 15 RBI in 67 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:06 pm
  • Garcia drives in run with a triple, scores
    Leury Garcia laced a run-scoring triple against the Tigers in the first game of a doubleheader on Saturday.

    Advice: His three-bagger in the eight inning plated pinch-runner Adam Engel from first base. Garcia then scored on a single by Jose Abreu. The switch-hitter started the season manning the ninth spot in the batting order for the White Sox, but has slowly worked his way to the top of the order by hitting .285/.336/.482 with six homers, 22 runs, 17 RBI and four stolen bases in 41 games.

  • 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 Yesterday, 2:27 pm

  • Rangers claim Peter O'Brien off waivers
    Rangers claimed INF/OF Peter O'Brien off waivers from the Reds.

    Advice: O'Brien spent just nine days in the Reds' organization before he was designated for assignment. He has plenty of power in his bat, but no true position defensively and far too much swing and miss in his profile. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:05 am

  • Padres place Manuel Margot on 10-day DL
    Padres placed OF Manuel Margot on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 25, with a strained right calf.

    Advice: The Padres gave him a couple of days to see if he could recover quickly, but eventually made the right move putting him on the disabled list. Franchy Cordero was recalled from Triple-A El Paso in a corresponding move. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:48 am

  • Tigers recall JaCoby Jones from Triple-A
    Tigers recalled OF JaCoby Jones from Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: Jones struggled after being named the club's Opening Day center fielder and was ultimately sent down after getting hit in the face by a pitch. He'll provide depth in center field while Andrew Romine covers for the injured Ian Kinsler at second base. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:00 am

  • Perez has two hits, RBI single in loss
    Hernan Perez went 2-for-5 with an RBI single in Friday’s extra-inning loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Perez made the start in left field and batted third with Ryan Braun (calf) back on the disabled list. The 26-year-old was a valuable piece in fantasy leagues last year and is batting .274/.314/.479 with five home runs, 19 RBI, two steals, and 20 runs scored through 42 games this season. He’s in a great situation in this lineup, so he’s worth considering in mixed fantasy leagues as long as the playing time is there. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:31 pm

  • Michael Taylor goes deep in Friday's victory
    Michael Taylor belted a two-run homer on Friday as the Nationals topped the Padres in their series opener in Washington.

    Advice: Taylor's two-run blast off of Luis Perdomo gave the Nationals a 3-1 lead in the fourth inning. It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the night and he also whiffed twice. Taylor is hitting .266/.302/.431 with three homers and 11 RBI in a part-time role with the Nats this season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:50 pm
  • Rob Segedin (toe) out four to six weeks
    Rob Segedin will undergo surgery on his injured toe and miss an additional four-to-six weeks.

    Advice: Segedin has been battling turf toe for the past month and a half already and now will finally go under the knife to correct the issue. He isn't likely to return to the Dodgers until after the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:46 pm

    Manuel Margot (calf) was wearing a walking boot on his right leg Friday and is expected to be placed on the disabled list.

    Advice: Margot is out of the lineup for a second straight game due to a sore right calf and he's likely to officially be placed on the DL this weekend. It's unclear at this point how much time he might miss. Allen Cordoba is in center field Friday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:50 pm

  • Manuel Margot day-to-day with calf injury
    Manuel Margot (calf) is not in the Padres' lineup Thursday against the Mets.

    Advice: Margot tweaked his calf breaking for a fly ball a few days ago and is still feeling a little sore. Matt Szczur is holding down the fort in center field and batting seventh Thursday against Mets right-hander Rafael Montero. Consider Margot day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:53 pm

  • Colby Rasmus knocks in four runs
    Colby Rasmus drove in all four Rays runs with a single and a double Thursday against the Angels.

    Advice: Rasmus has fanned 28 times in 71 plate appearances since coming off the DL, but he's still been productive, batting .246 with five homers and 14 RBI in 19 games. His performance mirrors the Rays' offense as a whole to this point of the season; the team is on pace to blow away the MLB record for strikeouts in a season, but it's still scoring runs at a pretty good clip. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:34 pm
  • Reds DFA slugger Peter O'Brien
    Reds designated 1B/OF Peter O'Brien for assignment.

    Advice: Cincinnati just claimed O'Brien off waivers nine days ago from the Royals. The 26-year-old has batted .168/.252/.304 with four home runs and 37 strikeouts in 32 games this season between Triple-A Omaha and Triple-A Louisville. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:58 am

  • 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
  • Margot forced out with sore right calf
    Manuel Margot left Wednesday's game against the Mets due to a sore right calf.

    Advice: After Margot came down with tightness in his right leg, Matt Szczur took over for him in center field. He should be considered day-to-day moving forward unless the Padres indicate otherwise. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:14 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.

Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:13 am
  • Kolten Wong leaves with left elbow discomfort
    Kolten Wong left Saturday's game against the Giants with left elbow discomfort.

    Leury Garcia (elbow) is absent from the White Sox's lineup Saturday against the Mariners.

    Advice: He hasn't started since taking a pitch off his elbow on Thursday night, though he did appear as a pinch-runner on Friday.

  • Leury Garcia pinch runs in victory on Friday
    Leury Garcia (elbow) appeared as a pinch runner and scored the winning run in Friday's extra-inning victory over the Mariners.

    Advice: Garcia was drilled with a pitch during Thursday's game and he sat out on Friday as a precautionary measure.
