  • Descalso slugs three-run homer in victory
    Daniel Descalso hit a three-run homer in the Diamondbacks' win over the White Sox on Monday.

    Advice: Descalso opened the game's scoring with his three-run blast off White Sox starter Miguel Gonzalez in the bottom of the fourth inning. He also drew a walk in the victory but is still batting just .194/.333/.388 over 37 games this year. The utilityman carries no fantasy relevance. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:21 pm

  • Alexi Amarista goes 3-for-4 in win
    Alexi Amarista finished 3-for-4 in Monday's rout of the Phillies.

    Advice: Everything went wrong for the Rockies this spring, but they've had pretty great fortune since Opening Day. That's particularly apparent in Amarista's .975 OPS. He came in at .600, .544 and .567 for the Padres the previous three years. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:46 pm
  • Freese run for arguing called third strike
    David Freese was ejected from Monday's game against the Braves for arguing a called third strike in the fourth inning.

    Advice: His manager, Clint Hurdle, was also given the gate for arguing the same call. Freese finished the night 0-for-2. Alen Hanson replaced him in the lineup with Josh Harrison shifting over to cover the hot corner. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:48 pm
  • Ryan Flaherty (shoulder) getting PRP shot
    Ryan Flaherty (shoulder) will receive a platelet-rich plasma injection Monday.

    Advice: The Orioles are saying only that he'll be sidelined for more than the minimum 10 days, and it seems likely to be quite a bit longer than that. Flaherty was been bothered by a right shoulder issue since spring training and was finally put on the DL Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:42 pm

  • Denard Span sitting out with hand issue
    Denard Span is not in the Giants' lineup Monday due to an inflamed and bruised left hand.

    Advice: The problem evidently developed due to Span being repeatedly jammed at the plate. At this point, there are no plans for him to undergo an X-ray, but Span can't grip a bat without pain and could sit out a few days. Gorkys Hernandez is in center field and Joe Panik is leading off Monday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:22 pm

  • Flaherty (shoulder) could get PRP injection
    Ryan Flaherty could be given a platelet-rich plasma injection in his ailing right shoulder.

    Advice: The Orioles are still trying to determine whether the strain Flaherty is dealing with is more in his lat or his rotator cuff. Either way, he'll be sidelined for a minimum of two weeks if he receives the injection and in all likelihood longer than that. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:36 pm

  • Gose assigned to High-A Lakeland
    Anthony Gose, now a pitcher, has been assigned to High-A Lakeland.

    Advice: Gose, a .240/.309/.348 career hitter in the major leagues, has been working on the switch for a few weeks in extended spring training and is now ready to test himself in a real game. The 26-year-old is said to throw hard from the left side and Tigers manager Brad Ausmus recently gave high praise to his curveball. It will be an interesting story to follow.

  • Espinosa not in Monday's lineup
    Danny Espinosa is not in Monday's lineup against the Rays.

    Advice: Nolan Fontana will get the nod at second base in his major league debut. Espinosa went 1-for-3 with two walks on Sunday, but he's batting just .152/.242/.280 through 42 games this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:24 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 Yesterday, 12:01 pm
  • Moncada having thumb examined Monday
    White Sox prospect Yoan Moncada is having his sore left thumb examined Monday in Chicago.

    Advice: It's considered a routine exam, so there's no cause for concern. No structural damage was found through X-rays and an MRI, so he should be back in action fairly soon. The 21-year-old was batting .331/.401/.504 with six homers and 10 steals through 34 games in Triple-A prior to the injury. His time is coming soon. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:47 am

  • Urias keeps hitting
    Padres prospect Luis Urias picked up three more hits on Sunday for Double-A San Antonio.

    Advice: Could this be the best Urias? Probably not, but Luis is slowly becoming one of the best infield prospects in baseball. He's now hitting .344 for the Missions, and he's doing it as a teenager. If he can stay at shortstop he's a perennial All-Star, but no matter where he plays, he's relevant because he can really, really hit. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:35 am

  • Two doubles for Gordon
    Twins prospect Nick Gordon went 2-for-4 on Sunday for Double-A Chattanooga.

    Advice: Both of Gordon's hits were doubles, and he scored two runs for good measure. He had been in a mini-slump coming into the game, but the overall numbers (.859 OPS) tell the story of how good the former first-round pick has been. You probably won't see him in 2017, but it's not longer a foregone conclusion that he won't get big-league time this year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:24 am

  • Big day for Kingery
    Phillies prospect Scott Kingery went 4-for-5 with two homers on Sunday for Double-A Reading.

    Advice: Kingery also scored four times. A 2015 second-round selection, Kingery has been sensational in the Eastern League in 2017, and now owns a 1.018 OPS. He also is a plus runner, and he's capable of stealing 20-plus bases a season. Add in his ability to play a quality second base, and you have yourself a fine middle-infield fantasy prospect. He should get a chance to play in Triple-A soon. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:54 am

  • Calhoun homers
    Dodgers prospect Willie Calhoun homered on Sunday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: After not homering in the first two weeks of the season, Calhoun now has nine. He's also done this while only striking out 17 times this season, which speaks to his power and his hand-eye coordination. There are serious defensive concerns here, but Calhoun can really hit, and the Dodgers would do well to find somewhere for him to play. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:34 am

  • Two-hit day for Adames
    Rays prospect Willy Adames went 2-for-3 on Sunday for Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Adames also knocked in a run, and stole his third base of the season. The Rays top prospect still isn't performing up to his talent, but again, it's not unheard of for 21-year-olds to struggle in Triple-A. This is still a shortstop with an above-average hit tool, and guys who can hit for average at a premium position are very valuable. Don't give up on Adames. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:30 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 Yesterday, 8:42 am

  • Ryan Flaherty (shoulder) placed on DL
    Orioles placed INF Ryan Flaherty on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 19, with right shoulder tendinitis.

    Advice: Flaherty has dealt with the issue since spring training. He'll receive a cortisone shot in hopes that it will help speed along the healing process. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:30 am

  • Ryan Flaherty still battling shoulder issue
    Ryan Flaherty could be placed on the disabled list due to tendinitis in his right shoulder.

    Advice: It's something that's bothered him since spring training and he continues to receive treatment. Flaherty is capable of playing through the ailment, but the Orioles might decide to give him a cortisone shot and shut him down for a bit. Paul Janish is on the taxi squad and would replace Flaherty if a move is made. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:28 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

  • Freese goes 2-for-3 with a solo homer Sat.
    David Freese went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Saturday's defeat of the Phillies.

    Advice: He took Phillies starter Vince Velasquez deep in the fourth inning with the bases empty. He also drew a walk in the ballgame. Freese is batting .273/.374/.468 with four home runs and 11 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:32 pm
  • Alexi Amarista leads the way in rout of Reds
    Alexi Amarista went 3-for-5 with a homer and four RBI on Friday, leading the Rockies in a 12-6 rout of the Reds.

    Advice: His three-run blast off of Lisalverto Bonilla broke the game open in the sixth inning, and he chipped in an RBI single later to close out the eight-run inning. He has done a nice job in limited action this season, slashing .341/.356/.568 with a pair of homers and 10 RBI. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:55 pm
  • Freese hitless Friday against Phillies
    David Freese went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday’s loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: Freese started the year strong before going down with a hamstring injury last month, but he’s batting just .055 (1-for-18) since returning from the disabled list. Jung Ho Kang’s prison sentence was upheld earlier this week, so Freese’s playing time should be safe for the near future. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:14 pm
  • 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
    10-Day DL

  • 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.

  • Moncada placed on DL at AAA Charlotte
    Yoan Moncada has been placed on the 7-day disabled list at Triple-A Charlotte with a sore left thumb.

    Advice: Moncada has undergone X-rays and an MRI, and both scans turned up negative for structural damage. It shouldn't be a lengthy absence. The 21-year-old top infield prospect has batted .331/.401/.504 with six home runs and 10 stolen bases through 34 games this season at the Triple-A level. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:55 am

  • Danny Espinosa scores three times
    Danny Espinosa went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and three runs scored Wednesday against the White Sox.

    Advice: The results still haven't really been there, but Espinosa is looking a lot better and hitting the ball harder in recent days. He's still batting a measly .152 for the season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:01 pm
  • Yoan Moncada (thumb) likely for disabled list
    White Sox prospect Yoan Moncada is expected to be placed on the 7-day minor league disabled list due to a sore left thumb.

    Advice: Moncada has been dealing with nagging soreness in his left thumb of late, but on the more positive side of the ledger, an MRI and X-ray revealed no structural damage or break. The 21-year-old third baseman is one of the top prospects -- if not the top prospect -- in the game and could see a call-up in June, assuming this thumb soreness does not sideline him for too long.

  • Hector Sanchez (foot) catches 'pen session
    Hector Sanchez (foot) caught a bullpen session Monday.

    Advice: Sanchez will also attempt to go through a full workout. He appears to be close to returning from his bruised foot. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:14 pm
  • David Freese not in Sunday's lineup
    David Freese is absent from the Pirates' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a scheduled day off, as Freese played the first two games after being activated from the disabled list. The Pirates have Josh Harrison at third base and Gift Ngoepe at second. Rotoworld.com May 14, 11:49 am
