  • Jeremy Hellickson gives up four runs in loss
    Jeremy Hellickson surrendered four runs in six innings Monday in a loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: Hellickson's horrible strikeout rate didn't hurt him in the early going, but it's taking a serious toll now; he ends May 1-3 with a 7.04 ERA after going 4-0 with a 1.80 ERA in April. We wouldn't expect a big rebound. Rotoworld.com 14 minutes ago
  • Lisalverto Bonilla gives up six runs
    Lisalverto Bonilla was tagged for six runs in 2 1/3 innings Monday in his start against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: On the plus side, both pitchers who relieved Bonilla were so bad that his performance might wind up mostly forgotten by the club. Robert Stephenson allowed seven runs and 10 hits in two innings after taking over, and Jake Buchanan finished up by allowing four runs and 10 hits in 3 2/3 innings. Bonilla, who walked five of the 15 batters he faced tonight, is now 0-3 with a 7.71 ERA. He belongs in middle relief if he's going to stick around. Rotoworld.com 24 minutes ago
  • Tyler Skaggs (oblique) moved to 60-day DL
    Angels transferred LHP Tyler Skaggs from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Eric Young. It doesn't change Skaggs' timetable, as he's resumed throwing but is still multiple weeks away from a return from a strained oblique. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:21 pm

  • Renfroe launches grand slam, Pads top Cubs
    Hunter Renfroe launched a grand slam Monday in the Padres' 5-2 win over the Cubs.

    Advice: The four-run shot off Kyle Hendricks in the bottom of the fourth inning gave San Diego the lead for good. Renfroe has been highly productive in May and now has 10 home runs and 24 RBI in 52 total games this year. The 25-year-old outfielder should continue to provide useful fantasy value in the power departments. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:19 pm
  • Eric Young Jr. called up from Triple-A
    Angels purchased the contract of OF Eric Young Jr. from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Young was off to a .354/.419/.528 start with five homers and 15 steals for Salt Lake. He's starting in left field Monday and could see some playing time there while Mike Trout (thumb) is out, although the bulk of the at-bats figure to go to Ben Revere. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:18 pm

  • Garza allows four earned in loss to Mets
    Matt Garza allowed four earned runs over 5 2/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Mets.

    Advice: He walked two and gave up seven hits. Garza has now struggled in two straight starts and it seems likely that his ERA will continue to rise. It jumped from 3.60 to 3.98 on Monday afternoon at Citi Field. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:04 pm
  • Sano homers in return to lineup Monday
    Miguel Sano slugged a two-run homer and drew a walk in Monday’s loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Sano was back in the lineup Monday after getting two days off to clear his head. Strikeouts are always going to be part of his game, but he’s emerging as one of the top young slugger’s in the game. The 24-year-old is batting .294/.408/.594 with 12 home runs and 39 RBI through 46 games. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:12 pm

  • Eric Young Jr. has locker in Angels clubhouse
    Eric Young Jr. has a locker and uniform in the Angels' clubhouse Monday.

    Advice: Nothing official has been announced, but it probably doesn't bode well for Mike Trout (thumb). Young is batting .354/.419/.528 with five homers and 15 steals at Triple-A Salt Lake. If Trout goes on the disabled list, Ben Revere should be the biggest beneficiary of increased playing time. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:52 pm

  • Bundy gives up two runs in win over Yankees
    Dylan Bundy yielded two runs over seven innings in a 3-2 win over the Yankees on Monday.

    Advice: Bundy gave up seven hits — including a solo homer to Aaron Judge — while walking just one and striking out three. The 24-year-old has now gone at least six innings in all 11 of his starts this season and owns a 2.89 ERA and 49/20 K/BB ratio over 71 2/3 innings. The secondary numbers still indicate that regression is coming, but he’s been one of the more pleasant surprises during the first half. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:22 pm

  • Judge launches MLB-leading 17th home run
    Aaron Judge slugged his MLB-leading 17th homer in Monday’s loss to the Orioles.

    Advice: It was a solo shot off Dylan Bundy in the seventh inning. Orioles fans have probably had just about enough of Judge, as he now has five homers in seven games against the club this season. Judge is batting .321/.421/.691 through 46 games. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:20 pm
  • Conforto back in Mets' lineup Monday
    Michael Conforto is back in the Mets' starting lineup Monday against the Brewers.

    Advice: Conforto was given the day off on Sunday, but he's back in the leadoff spot for Monday's game. The 24-year-old has been one of the game's best hitters so far, batting .322/.416/.658 with 13 home runs and 32 RBI through 45 games. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:31 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

  • Taillon (cancer) to throw bullpen Tuesday
    Jameson Taillon (cancer) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Tuesday.

    Advice: Taillon struck out six batters over three scoreless innings Sunday with Double-A Altoona, just three weeks removed from surgery for testicular cancer. The Pirates haven't revealed a specific timetable for his return, but Taillon expects to make at least one more start in the minors. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:28 am

  • Adam Jones (ankle, hip) scratched from lineup
    Adam Jones (ankle, hip) has been scratched from Monday's lineup against the Yankees.

    Advice: Jones was in the original lineup, but he apparently didn't feel 100 percent during his morning workout. Consider him day-to-day. Joey Rickard will cover center field duties again. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:02 am

  • A's place Graveman (shoulder) on 10-day DL
    Athletics placed RHP Kendall Graveman on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 20, with a right shoulder strain.

    Advice: The expected move after Graveman was scratched from his scheduled start on Friday. He missed the minimum 10 days last month while dealing with shoulder soreness, but his stint on the DL figures to be a bit longer this time. He won't throw again until the pain subsides. Daniel Mengden has been called up to take his spot in the A's rotation. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:25 am

  • Miguel Sano back in Twins' lineup Monday
    Miguel Sano has returned to the Twins' lineup on Monday against the Astros.

    Advice: Sano was held out of the lineup for back-to-back games over the weekend in order to clear his head and work on his swing. The young slugger has one hit in his last 16 at-bats with 12 strikeouts. He should get back to mashing soon enough. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:17 am

    Adam Jones (ankle, hip) has returned to the Orioles' starting lineup Monday against the Yankees.

  • Taillon strikes out six in first rehab start
    Jameson Taillon (cancer) struck out six batters over three scoreless innings Sunday in his first rehab start with Double-A Altoona.

    Advice: Taillon underwent surgery earlier this month to treat testicular cancer, but he was able to quickly return to game action. He was very sharp in his first rehab start, allowing just one hit and one walk while throwing 29 out of 47 pitches for strikes. Taillon should be ready to rejoin the Pirates' soon, but manager Clint Hurdle doesn't want to rush him. "We don't have expectations, and we want to take it slow with him so he doesn't feel any unneeded urgency," said Hurdle. "He needs to get right when he's right ... this is uncharted territory."

  • 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.

  • Michael Conforto not in Mets lineup Sunday
    Michael Conforto is not in the Mets' starting lineup for Sunday night's game against the Pirates.

    Advice: Looks like nothing more than a routine day of rest for the club's hottest hitter. Juan Lagares is starting in center field and batting eighth against Tyler Glasnow and the Pirates on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:00 pm
  • Aaron Judge slugs his first career grand slam
    Aaron Judge launched his first career grand slam Sunday in the Yankees' 9-5 win over the A's.

    Advice: Judge went deep to right in the bottom of the third inning off Athletics starter Andrew Triggs for his MLB-leading 16th home run of the year. He is the youngest Yankee to hit a grand slam since Melky Cabrera in 2006. Judge also singled in the game, finishing 2-for-4, and he's now batting .321/.422/.679. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:37 pm
  • Adam Jones (ankle, hip) sitting out again
    Adam Jones (ankle, hip) remained out of the Orioles' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Jones is a little banged up and is getting a second straight day of rest. He's expected to be back in there Monday when the O's return home. Joey Rickard is getting another start in center field. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:58 am

  • Kendall Graveman (shoulder) headed to DL
    Kendall Graveman (shoulder) will be placed on the disabled list prior to Monday's game in Cleveland.

    Advice: It's been the assumption since he was scratched from Friday's start with more shoulder soreness. Graveman was on the DL last month with shoulder issues, as well, and his stay figures to be longer this time around. Daniel Mengden will replace him in the A's rotation.

  • Renfroe goes 1-for-4 in loss to Nationals
    Hunter Renfroe went 1-for-4 as the cleanup batter in Saturday's loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: He got one of the three hits (all singles) the Padres could muster against an utterly dominant Stephen Strasburg today. Renfroe usually bats fifth but moved up one slot with Wil Myers sitting out the game. The rookie is batting .231/.286/.440 with nine home runs and 20 RBI in 196 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:03 pm
  • Taillon (cancer) to make rehab start Sunday
    Jameson Taillon (cancer) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Altoona on Sunday.

    Advice: Taillen underwent surgery for testicular cancer earlier this month but resumed throwing last week and has already progressed to a minor league rehab assignment. It shouldn't be long until he's back in the Pirates' starting rotation. Taillon was having a great year before his cancer diagnosis, spinning a 3.31 ERA over six starts for the Bucs.

  • Adam Jones out with hip and ankle injuries
    Updating an earlier report, Adam Jones is out with a left ankle injury and a sore hip.

    Advice: Jones was given the day off Saturday against the Astros and will be reevaluated on Sunday. The hip issue is nothing new as Jones missed a game with a similar injury earlier this month. His absence spells more bad news for an Orioles team in the midst of a six-game losing streak. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:15 pm

  • Adam Jones gets a day off on Saturday
    Adam Jones is not in the Orioles' starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Astros.

    Advice: It looks to be a routine day off for the 31-year-old outfielder. He's hitting .258/.302/.411 with eight homers and 21 RBI in 45 games this season. Joey Rickard is starting in center field and batting leadoff for the O's on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:39 pm

  • Miguel Sano not in Twins lineup on Saturday
    Miguel Sano is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's showdown against Jake Odorizzi and the Rays.

    Advice: Sano is in a bit of a funk at the plate, as he's 0-for-13 with 10 strikeouts in his last three games, so skipper Paul Molitor is giving him a day off to clear his head. Ehire Adrianza is starting at shortstop for the Twins while Eduardo Escobar draws the start at third base. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:50 am

  • Graveman battling shoulder soreness again
    Kendall Graveman was scratched from Friday's start versus the Yankees due to right shoulder soreness.

    Advice: Graveman was on the disabled list last month with a strained shoulder and it appears it's acting up on him again. He hasn't officially be placed on the DL yet, but that will likely happen Saturday. Jharel Cotton is taking his spot in the rotation. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:52 pm

  • Renfroe turns in another multi-hit game
    Hunter Renfroe went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Mets.

    Advice: Renfroe is having a strong four-game stretch, going 8-for-16 with four doubles, a homer, two RBI and four runs scored in that span. It was a much-needed stretch for the 25-year-old, who was hitting just .205 at the outset of the four games. Renfroe is batting .232/.288/.446 with nine homers through 48 games overall. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:56 pm
  • Taillon (cancer) throws 35-pitch pen session
    Jameson Taillon (cancer) threw a 35-pitch bullpen session on Thursday morning.

    Advice: Taillon called it "more competitive" than his first 25-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday. The young right-hander is recovering from surgery for testicular cancer and seems to be making swift progress, though the Pirates have yet to map out a timetable for his return to the active roster. It's not worth speculating. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:47 am

  • Bonilla yields three runs in five innings Wed
    Lisalverto Bonilla gave up three runs in five innings during his start versus the Indians on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was in line to take a loss until the Reds came back and won in the ninth inning. He gave up six hits and three walks while striking out two. Two of the runs he allowed came on a Carlos Santana bomb in the third inning. Bonilla has a 6.17 ERA in 23 1/3 innings. The Reds' rotation is wide open due to injuries and poor performances but Bonilla will need to make some improvements if he wants to stick around. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:19 pm
  • Conforto goes 2-for-3 with a run and RBI Wed.
    Michael Conforto continued to rake as he went 2-for-3 with a run scored, an RBI and two walks in Wednesday's loss to the Padres.

    Advice: He delivered a run-scoring single in the fourth inning that gave the Mets a 5-1 lead that would soon be blown by their pitching staff. Conforto began the season without an everyday starting role but has forced himself into the lineup by batting .341/.437/.712 with 13 homers, 35 runs scored and 32 RBI in 41 games. He hasn't shown any signs of cooling off any time soon. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:26 pm
  • Hellickson blasted for seven runs vs Rockies
    Jeremy Hellickson was shredded for seven runs in five innings in a loss to the Rockies on Wednesday.

    Advice: He can't use Coors Field as an excuse either since this game was played in Philadelphia. He actually tossed four scoreless frames interrupted by a seven-run outburst in the third inning. He walked two batters in that inning and gave up six hits, including a three-run bomb by Carlos Gonzalez. Hellickson gave up a total of eight hits and four free passes while notching only two strikeouts in the contest. He had been having a strong season, entering the day with a 5-1 record and 3.44 ERA despite his 3.62 K/9 being the worst in the league by a wide margin. He falls to 5-2 with a 4.28 ERA after 10 starts. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:43 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

  • Garza hammered for six earned vs. Jays
    Matt Garza was hammered for six earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Garza had been in a nice groove in May, but it was never meant to last. He surrendered three home runs on Wednesday, including a Ryan Goins grand slam in the top of the sixth inning. The veteran right-hander now stands 2-1 with a 3.60 ERA in 35 innings (six starts) this season and makes for too risky of a play in standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:20 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.

  • Conforto hits two home runs, knocks in four
    Michael Conforto went 3-for-4 with two homers and four RBI in the Mets' 9-3 victory over the Padres on Tuesday.

    Advice: We thought the Mets made the wrong choice between Conforto and Jay Bruce this spring. It turns out that they're really fortunate to have both. Conforto now has 13 homers, 31 RBI and 34 runs scored in just 129 at-bats. HIs OPS stands at 1.138. The Mets' franchise record for OPS in a season is 1.024, established by Mike Piazza in 1998.

  • Bundy bounce back against Twins
    Dylan Bundy struck out seven and held the Twins to two runs over seven frames but took a loss Tuesday.

    Advice: He walked three and served up a solo homer to Brian Dozier, but it was a nice bounce-back showing from Bundy after he had his first non-quality start of the season the last time out. This was just the fourth time in 10 starts that he’s struck out more than three batters. He’ll get the Yankees next. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:47 pm

    Advice: Kendrick took outdoor batting practice Tuesday for the first time since straining an oblique muscle in mid-April.

    Advice: Taillon has made encouraging progress from his May 8 surgery for suspected testicular cancer, though Pirates trainer Todd Tomczyk cautioned Tuesday that this is still very much a day-to-day situation.

    Miguel Sano went 4-for-6 with a homer and three RBI as the Twins topped the Orioles 14-7 on Monday.

    Advice: Sano had gone eight straight games without a homer, but even during that stretch, he hit .300 with a .382 OBP. He's been an awesome force since day one this year, and we see no reason to expect that to change. Rotoworld.com May 22, 8:19 pm

  • Hunter Renfroe doubles on three-hit afternoon
    Hunter Renfroe went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI single in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: The double was Renfroe's eighth of the season. In addition, the 25-year-old outfielder is slashing .218/.275/.412 with eight homers and 19 RBI over the course of 45 games played. His almost complete lack of contact (Sunday's three-hit showing aside) puts a real cap on his fantasy upside, though the power output has been there. Rotoworld.com May 21, 5:10 pm
  • Miguel Sano drives in three in loss to Royals
    Miguel Sano went 2-for-4 with a two-run double and three total RBI in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Sano picked up his first RBI on an infield single in the fifth inning. He would come through once more with a two-run double in the seventh. The 24-year-old third baseman is blossoming into a true star this season and is slashing a lovely .305/.431/.626 with 10 homers and 33 RBI across 131 at-bats. Rotoworld.com May 21, 2:42 pm

  • Hellickson dealing with tightness in back
    Jeremy Hellickson said Friday that he is dealing with tightness in his back but still expects to be able to make his next start.

    Advice: The right-hander was pulled from Friday's game after he smashed an RBI double in the seventh inning but appeared to tweak something on a swing. It's encouraging that he believes the injury to be minor and should be able to avoid the trip to the disabled list. Rotoworld.com May 19, 8:02 pm
  • Bonilla hit hard in loss to Rockies on Friday
    Lisalverto Bonilla was hit hard in Friday's loss to the Rockies, allowing six runs on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings of work.

    Advice: The right-hander walked three and struck out three on the night. The Rockies scratched out a pair of runs in the first inning then Bonilla was able to keep them off the board until an uprising in sixth. There, a three-run homer by Alexi Amarista provided the bulk of the damage. He'll carry a 6.38 ERA and 1.36 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Indians in Cleveland. He should be avoided for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com May 19, 7:53 pm
  • Conforto homers in victory over Angels
    Michael Conforto had another strong night at the dish on Friday against the Angels, going 2-for-3 with a solo homer, a walk, and two runs scored.

    Advice: The Mets snapped their seven-game losing streak in the process. Conforto is now up to 11 home runs on the year, one shy of his total from all of last season. Originally expected to be the odd-man out in the Mets’ outfield, the 24-year-old has been one of the game’s best hitters so far this season. He’s batting .319/.403/.664 through 37 games.

  • 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 May 19, 7:14 pm

  • Jeremy Hellickson leaves game with injury
    Jeremy Hellickson was forced to leave Friday's game against the Pirates with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Hellickson had fired six strong innings, allowing just two runs (one earned) on two hits before departing. He remained in the game to hit in the top half of the seventh and slashed a double to left field, but appeared to tweak his side during his swing and was eventually lifted. Look for an update from the Phillies on his status after the game. Rotoworld.com May 19, 6:30 pm
  • Tyler Skaggs (oblique) cleared to throw
    Tyler Skaggs (oblique) has been cleared to resume a throwing program on Monday.

    Advice: Skaggs was given a 10-12 week timetable to return from a Grade 2 right oblique strain, which would put his return around the All-Star break. He thinks he can beat that projection, though, and it seems like he might be ready since he's going to resume throwing in a few days. Rotoworld.com May 19, 2:51 pm
