  • Brad Miller (abdomen) starts up running
    Brad Miller (abdomen) has started running as he continues his rehab.

    Advice: Miller took part in light infield practice on Tuesday. While he won't be ready to rejoin the team when eligible on May 26, he is clearly beginning to feel better. He could potentially return to the Rays some time late next week. He was placed on the disabled list with a lower abdominal strain on May 16. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:24 pm

  • Schoop slugs sixth home run Wednesday
    Jonathan Schoop hit his sixth home run of the season Wednesday in the Orioles' loss to the Twins.

    Advice: It was a solo shot off Jose Berrios in the bottom of the third inning. Schoop finished 1-for-4 in the game and is now batting .269/.324/.462 for the year. He's on pace for 22 homers and 68 RBI. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:00 pm
  • Javy Baez at leadoff for CHC on Wednesday
    Javier Baez is batting leadoff for the Cubs on Wednesday night against the Giants.

    Advice: A nice reward for his hot May. Baez has slashed .318/.338/.636 with six home runs, 16 RBI, two stolen bases, and 13 runs scored in 19 games since the calendar flipped from April. Ben Zobrist is out of the Cubs' starting lineup on Wednesday against Giants lefty Matt Moore, as is Willson Contreras. Miguel Montero will catch. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:09 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.

  • Logan Forsythe atones in 13th inning
    Logan Forsythe (foot) posted a game-winning RBI double in the bottom of the 13th inning in Tuesday's game against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Forsythe was hitless in four at-bats with a walk and four strikeouts before providing the heroics in extras. It was his first game since April 18 due to a fracture in his right big toe. Forsythe will continue to fill in at the hot corner until Justin Turner (hamstring) is ready to return, then he'll move back to his usual spot at second base. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:04 am
  • Jed Lowrie comes across to score three times
    Jed Lowrie finished 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, three runs scored and an RBI in Tuesday's against Miami.

    Advice: Lowrie has hit safely in five consecutive games, posting nine hits over 21 at-bats (.429) with six runs scored, two doubles, two hits and four RBI. He is slashing .283/.355/.464 as he continues to trend upward again after slumping hard in mid-May. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:15 am
  • Dee Gordon posts three hits in Tuesday's win
    Dee Gordon finished 3-for-6 with a triple, a run scored, two RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's 11-9 win in Oakland.

    Advice: Gordon has been a streaky hitter this season, and lately he is riding an impressive wave. He has four consecutive multi-hit games, collecting nine hits across 18 at-bats over the past four outings. He has raised his average from .245 to .271 just since May 18 as a result of the hot run.

  • Jonathan Villar steals three bases Tuesday
    Jonathan Villar had a two-RBI single and stole three bases in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Villar singled in two runs and stole two bases in the fifth inning and then stole another base after walking in the seventh. He's hitting just .220/.289/.345, but Villar is tied for fourth in baseball with his 12 steals and he's also swatted five home runs. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:58 pm

  • Jose Ramirez goes 0-for-4 against Reds
    Jose Ramirez's dreadful May continued Tuesday, as he went 0-for-4 against the Reds.

    Advice: Ramirez is just 13-for-67 with no homers this month after hitting .330 with six homers in April. Consider it a correction; he entered tonight with the same .825 OPS that he finished last year with. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:57 pm

  • 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 Yesterday, 7:37 pm
  • Whit Merrifield singles, homers Tuesday
    Whit Merrifield singled and hit a solo homer Tuesday versus the Yankees.

    Advice: Merrified had one of four longballs that the Royals hit in the seventh and eighth innings, with his coming off of Jonathan Holder. It was his fifth homer already over just 105 at-bats, and he's now riding a modest nine-game hitting streak. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:18 pm
  • Taylor Motter goes 0-for-3 in loss
    Taylor Motter went 0-for-3 on Tuesday and is hitting .208 in 53 at-bats this month.

    Advice: Motter only played tonight because Danny Valencia was scratched. He was one of April's most pleasant surprises, but the hits haven't been falling in of late. He still has the power and speed to be interesting if he gets another chance to play regularly, but he's not a mixed-league guy right now. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:47 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 Yesterday, 3:07 pm

  • Kendrick (oblique) nearing rehab assignment
    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 Yesterday, 2:16 pm

  • LAD activate 2B/3B Logan Forsythe from DL
    Dodgers activated 2B/3B Logan Forsythe from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: Forsythe will return as the Dodgers' fill-in third baseman on Tuesday night against the Cardinals with Justin Turner nursing a Grade 1 hamstring strain. He'll also bat leadoff. Chris Taylor and Chase Utley will continue to platoon at second base. Forsythe was batting .295/.407/.341 in 54 plate appearances with Los Angeles before landing on the disabled list April 19 with a fracture in his right big toe. He should be activated immediately in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:07 pm
  • Drew (hamstring) reports to extended spring
    Stephen Drew (hamstring) has reported to extended spring training and could soon begin playing in games.

    Advice: Drew has made very slow progress from a strained right hamstring, though manager Dusty Baker assured reporters last week that there has not been a significant setback. Drew could be ready for activation sometime next week if all goes well for him in West Palm Beach. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:46 pm

  • Brad Miller (abdomen) won't be ready Friday
    Brad Miller (abdomen) won't be ready for activation when first eligible on May 26.

    Advice: Miller took infield practice on Tuesday, but it was a relatively light workout and he still hasn't been cleared to run. Out since May 16 because of a lower abdominal strain, he'll aim to return to the the Rays' active roster sometime next week. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:28 pm

  • Padres recall Asuaje from Triple-A
    Padres recalled INF/OF Carlos Asuaje from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: This confirms a report from FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal. Acquired as part of the Craig Kimbrel trade, Asuaje was batting .222/.335/.319 with one homer and 20 RBI over 39 games this season with Triple-A El Paso. He'll function in a utility role. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:18 am
  • Baez not in Tuesday's lineup vs. Giants
    Javier Baez is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Giants.

    Advice: Baez went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer on Monday, but he'll take a seat on Monday against right-hander Jhonny Cueto. Ben Zobrist will make the start at second base and bat leadoff while Kyle Schwarber will return to left field and bat second. Ian Happ is starting in center field and will bat fifth.

  • Baez goes 3-for-4 with two-run HR in loss
    Javier Baez finished 3-for-4 with a two-run homer in the Cubs' loss to the Giants on Monday.

    Advice: Ben Zobrist was the only other Cubs batter to register multiple hits in this one. Baez struck his two-run shot off Giants starter Ty Blach in the bottom of the eighth, but the Cubs entered that inning trailing 6-0 and would ultimately fall 6-4. Baez is batting .264/.301/.496 with seven home runs and 21 RBI in 38 games this season for the defending World Series champions. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:24 pm

  • Padres calling up Carlos Asuaje
    The Padres are calling up infielder-outfielder Carlos Asuaje, reports FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

    Advice: The Padres haven't confirmed. Asuaje, a product of the Craig Kimbrel trade, appeared in seven games with the Padres last season and was batting .222/.335/.319 with one homer and 20 RBI over 39 games this season with Triple-A El Paso. The 25-year-old has mostly played second base in the minors, but he also has experience between third base and left field. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:10 am
  • 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 Sunday, 5:14 pm
  • Dee Gordon notches double in loss to Dodgers
    Dee Gordon went 2-for-4 with a double in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: The double was Gordon's sixth of the season. He also picked up a single, but struck out in his other two at-bats. The speedy second baseman has now turned in multi-hit performances in each of his last three games, but is hitting just .263/.319/.322 overall. While he does have 13 steals, at this juncture, base thefts are just about all he has going for him. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:22 pm
  • Jonathan Villar doubles in loss to Cubs
    Jonathan Villar went 3-for-4 with a double in Sunday's loss to the Cubs.

    Advice: Villar managed his seventh double of the season against Jake Arrieta, but the Brewers' offense was largely stymied until the ninth inning, when they scored five runs. That late flurry could not prevent the 13-6 defeat. Even with his three hits on Sunday, Villar is still hitting just .220 through 44 games played and has struck out a whopping 55 times across 173 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:02 pm

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.

  • Lowrie goes 3-for-5 with a home run on Sat.
    Jed Lowrie went 3-for-5 with a solo homer and two runs scored in a win over the Red Sox on Saturday.

    Advice: The homer came off reliever Noe Ramirez in the sixth inning. It was one of four longballs on the day for the Athletics against Red Sox pitching. Lowrie is wielding a surprisingly potent bat this season, batting .278/.350/.456 with six homers, 25 runs scored and 12 RBI through 42 games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:24 pm
  • Kolten Wong leaves with left elbow discomfort
    Kolten Wong left Saturday's game against the Giants with left elbow discomfort.

  • Ryan Schimpf getting the night off Saturday
    Ryan Schimpf is not in the Padres' lineup Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

  • Villar dropped to sixth in Brewers lineup
    Jonathan Villar has been dropped to sixth in the Brewers' lineup for Saturday's game against the Cubs.

    Advice: After a breakthrough 2016 season, regression has hit Villar in a big way this year. He's hitting just .207/.272/.331 and leads the National League with 55 strikeouts. On the plus side from a fantasy perspective, he has hit five homers and swiped eight bases. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:20 am

  • Forsythe will handle third base upon return
    Dodgers' skipper Dave Roberts said Friday that Logan Forsythe will play at third base when he returns from the disabled list on Tuesday.

    Advice: With Justin Turner on the shelf for a few weeks, they'll roll with Forsythe at third and continue to platoon Chris Taylor and Chase Utley at second base. Forsythe has played in just 14 games for the Dodgers this season, slashing .295/.407/.341 with no homers and three RBI. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:27 pm
  • Miller (abdomen) aims to return when eligible
    Brad Miller (abdomen) is hoping to be ready for activation from the disabled list when first eligible on May 26.

    Advice: There is no timetable for when Miller can resume baseball activities, however, so it's possible next Friday might be a tad aggressive for a timetable. The infielder was placed on the DL this week with a lower abdominal strain. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:38 pm

  • Lowrie hits two-run homer, A's beat BOS

    Advice: Lowrie struck for a two-run shot against Hector Velazquez in the first inning, his fifth home run of the season. In addition to that quintet of dingers, he owns a .268/.345/.436 triple-slash and has driven in 11 runs across 40 games played. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:00 pm
  • Merrifield has two hits, RBI against Yanks
    Whit Merrifield went 2-for-3 with an RBI single in Thursday's win over the Yankees.

    Advice: Merrifield now has hits in seven of his last nine games, including multiple hits in four of the seven. He's raised his average from .193 to .244 in that span, with a pair of homers and five RBI. The 28-year-old has four homers, two steals and a .714 OPS in 25 games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:00 pm
  • Forsythe (foot) to return Sunday or Tuesday
    The Dodgers will activate Logan Forsythe (foot) from the 10-day disabled list on Sunday or Tuesday.

    Advice: Forsythe is nearing the end of his rehab assignment with High-A Rancho Cucamonga and is set to join the Dodgers early next week. Sunday might be pushing it, but Forsythe should be back Tuesday at the latest. Forsythe has missed the past month while battling toe and hamstring injuries. Chris Taylor and Chase Utley have split time at second base during his absence. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:17 pm
  • Javier Baez goes 3-for-3, hits grand slam
    Javier Baez went 3-for-3 with a grand slam, five RBI and a walk as the Cubs topped the Reds 9-5 on Thursday.

    Advice: Baez is just 3-for-14 with the bases loaded in his career, but all three of those hits have been slams. He upped his OPS from .694 to .758 in the victory. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:54 pm

  • Rays place Brad Miller (abdomen) on the DL
    Rays placed 2B Brad Miller on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 16, with a lower abdominal strain.

    Advice: Miller suffered the injury on Monday night and hasn't played since. He was off to a disappointing start at the plate this season, with a weak .205/.350/.318 batting line and only two home runs in 39 games. Miller slugged a career-high 30 home runs in 2016. Daniel Robertson has been filling in at second base for Tampa Bay. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:34 pm

  • Villar getting day off Thursday vs. Padres
    Jonathan Villar is getting the day off Thursday versus the Padres.

    Advice: Eric Sogard will fill in at second base and bat leadoff against San Diego right-hander Jarred Cosart. It looks to be a routine day of rest for Villar, who has tallied five home runs, 21 RBI, eight stolen bases, and 20 runs scored in 41 games this season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:53 am

  • Forsythe (foot) goes 1-for-2 in rehab game
    Logan Forsythe (foot) finished 1-for-2 with a walk and a run scored in his second rehab game Wednesday with High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

    Advice: Forsythe played second base for several innings in this one after serving as Rancho Cucamonga's designated hitter in his rehab debut on Tuesday night. Forsythe remains on track to return to the Dodgers' active roster sometime next week. He's been out since April 19 with a fractured right big toe and a tweaked hamstring. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:58 am
  • Gordon swipes 12th base in loss on Wed.
    Dee Gordon stole his 12th base of the season in Wednesday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Gordon reached on a forceout in the bottom of the fifth inning and swiped third base after making it to second on a balk. He officially went 0-for-3 at the plate in the afternoon loss to Houston, though the speedster also reached base on a hit-by-pitch in the bottom of the first. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:15 pm
  • Brad Miller (abdomen) sits again Wednesday
    Brad Miller (abdomen) remains out of the Rays' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Indians.

    Advice: Miller tweaked his lower abdomen on Monday night and was scratched from Tuesday's starting lineup after experiencing lingering discomfort during pregame drills. He's considered day-to-day for now. Daniel Robertson will start at second base and bat eighth Wednesday versus Cleveland right-hander Josh Tomlin. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:41 am

  • Forsythe (foot) goes 0-for-4 in rehab game
    Logan Forsythe (foot) went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in a rehab game Tuesday with High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

    Advice: Forsythe served as the Quakes' designated hitter and will probably continue to DH for a couple more games before trying second base. He was initially placed on the disabled list April 19 with a fractured right big toe and then he suffered a tweaked hamstring on his first attempt at a minor league rehab assignment in early May. If he can avoid further setbacks, Forsythe should be ready to return to the Dodgers' active roster late next week. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:09 am
  • Miller out after tweaking abdomen
    Brad Miller is out Tuesday after tweaking his lower abdomen during Monday's game.

    Advice: Miller was in the original starting lineup, but he was scratched after still feeling the issue during pre-game activities. The hope is that he'll be good to go Wednesday. Daniel Robertson will fill in at second base for now. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:12 pm

  • Ryan Schimpf fans four times
    Ryan Schimpf went 0-for-5 and struck out four times against the Brewers on Monday.

    Advice: With his homers and walks, Schimpf might just be a decent regular as a .200 hitter. Right now, though, he's at .154, which poses a problem. We'd prefer to see the Padres keep playing him, but they do have Cory Spangenberg up as an alternative. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:21 pm
  • Jonathan Villar homers in comeback victory
    Jonathan Villar went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI in the Brewers' comeback victory over the Mets on Sunday.

With his two-hit effort, Villar is now hitting .222/.287/.359 with five homers, 21 RBI and eight stolen bases on the year. Rotoworld.com May 14, 3:37 pm

  • Dee Gordon moves back into leadoff spot
    Dee Gordon is back in the Marlins' leadoff spot for Sunday's game versus the Braves.

    Advice: Gordon was demoted to the No. 9 spot for four games, but he's back in the leadoff spot even though he had just three hits in 14 at-bats over that stretch. The Marlins also have A.J. Ellis catching as J.T. Realmuto gets a breather. Manager Don Mattingly's club has lost 14 of its last 17 games. Rotoworld.com May 14, 8:07 am
