  • Troy Tulowitzki (groin) likely back on Monday
    Troy Tulowitzki (groin) is expected to return to the Blue Jays' lineup Monday.

    Advice: Tulo is missing a second straight start Sunday because of a sore groin, but it's not viewed as a major concern. Ryan Goins is getting another start at shortstop Sunday. 57 minutes ago
    10:10 am @Cle
  • Yoenis Cespedes not in Sunday's lineup
    Yoenis Cespedes is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a routine day off. The Mets also have Asdrubal Cabrera on the bench, as they're going with Michael Conforto, Curtis Granderson and Jay Bruce in the outfield, T.J. Rivera at second base and Wilmer Flores at third. Today, 7:52 am
  • Ryon Healy (head) out again Sunday
    Ryon Healy (head) remained out of the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's the second straight start he's missed after a bad-hop grounder hit him in the head Friday. Healy did pinch-hit Saturday, though, and he probably would be starting if the A's weren't playing in a National League park without the designated hitter. Expect him to be back in there Monday in Toronto. Today, 7:33 am
    10:10 am @NYM
  • Tyler White recalled from Triple-A
    Astros recalled INF Tyler White from Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: White has batted .299/.371/.517 with 19 homers and 69 RBI at Fresno this season. He's played all over the infield this season and could see the occasional start against lefties. Today, 7:28 am
  • Ben Gamel extends hit streak to nine
    Ben Gamel finished 2-for-5 with a double, a solo home run and two runs scored in Saturday's game against the Yankees.

    Advice: Gamel pushed his hitting streak to nine games. He is hitting .308 (12-for-39) with five runs scored, two homers and four RBI during the solid run. It's rare, but his average has actually slipped two points since his hitting streak started right after the All-Star break. Today, 3:00 am
  • Edwin Diaz blows save against Bombers
    Edwin Diaz allowed an earned run, a hit and a walk while blowing a save in the ninth inning on Saturday against the Yankees.

    Advice: Diaz threw 15 of his 23 pitches for strikes, but he blew his fourth save chance of the season. Despite the shaky appearance he is not close to being on thin ice for his closer's job in Seattle. Today, 2:56 am
  • Ariel Miranda holds his own against Yanks
    Ariel Miranda allowed two earned runs, five hits and a walk with four strikeouts across 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision Saturday against the Yankees.

    Advice: Miranda has made three appearances in the month of July, posting a 7.31 ERA across 16 innings with no decisions. He'll look to keep things trending in the right direction in his next scheduled outing Friday against the Mets. Today, 2:54 am
  • Mookie Betts pushes hit streak to eight
    Mookie Betts posted a double, a run scored and an RBI across four at-bats in Saturday's road loss against the Angels.

    Advice: Betts has hit safely in eight consecutive outings, hitting .394 (13-for-33) with seven runs scored, a home run and seven RBI to raise his average from .269 to .280 just since July 15. Today, 1:31 am
  • David Price knocked around in Anaheim
    David Price allowed six runs - five earned - and seven hits with three walks and five strikeouts across five innings in a road loss Saturday against the Angels.

    Advice: It was Price's first loss since June 24, and it was his first non-quality start dating back to June 18. He'll look to bounce back at home next Friday against the Royals in a battle with All-Star Jason Vargas. Price is 2-1 with a 2.67 ERA over four starts at home as opposed to 3-2 with a 4.62 ERA across seven outings on the road. Today, 1:28 am
  • Starling Marte collects three hits in loss
    Starling Marte posted three singles and an RBI across five at-bats in Saturday's loss in Colorado while also adding a stolen base.

    Advice: Marte managed just two hits over 12 at-bats in his first three games back from an 80-game PED suspension. However, he has picked up the pace in Denver, going 5-for-10 (.500) in the first two games to raise his average 36 points to a more respectable .263. Today, 12:05 am
  • Bour goes 2-for-4 with two runs vs Reds Sat.
    Justin Bour went 2-for-4 and scored twice in Saturday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: He singled twice and both times trotted home on dingers by J.T. Realmuto. The 29-year-old first baseman is batting a splendid .291/.368/.554 with 21 home runs and 63 RBI. He has one stolen base this year, and that is the first and only one of his career. Yesterday, 10:39 pm
  • Hamilton goes 2-for-5 with a run and a steal
    Billy Hamilton went 2-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored during Saturday's loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: In the first inning he reached base on an infield single and took second on a wild throw. He then stole third base and scored on a base-loaded walk by Adam Duvall. Hamilton has been hitting better of late. His 41 stolen bases lead the major leagues by a comfortable margin. He has a .253 batting average with two home runs, 24 RBI and 60 runs scored. Yesterday, 10:14 pm
  • Moss hits 12th homer in win over White Sox
    Brandon Moss hit his 12th home run of the year in Saturday's win over the White Sox.

    Advice: White Sox reliever David Holmberg was the whipping boy in this one, serving up back-to-back shots to Salvador Perez and Mike Moustakas before giving up Moss's dong two batters later. The homer was the second in the past four games for the 33-year-old, who's 7-for-16 in that four-game span. Moss also stealthily stole his second base of the year in Saturday's game. He's a streaky hitter, but we'll need to see a lot more games like that before we even consider Moss and his .208 batting average for fantasy purposes. Yesterday, 9:42 pm
    11:15 am vs CWS
  • Chapman hits third homer in loss to Mets
    Matt Chapman hit his third home run of the year in Saturday's loss to the Mets.

    Advice: Chapman went deep against Mets starter Zack Wheeler in the third inning. It was his only hit in three at-bats. All three of Chapman's homers have come since the break, with two coming in the same game a week ago. That's the sort-of good news. The bad news is that hits on the whole have been hard to come by for the 24-year-old, who's batting just .185/.250/.415 through his first 19 major league games. Yesterday, 9:19 pm
  • Wheeler gives up five runs against Athletics
    Zack Wheeler allowed five runs on seven hits over five innings in a no-decision Saturday against the A's.

    Advice: Wheeler also walked four while striking out six and seemed destined for his sixth straight loss before the Mets came back to let him off the hook. Still, it certainly wasn't an encouraging turn for the 27-year-old, who now has a 5.21 ERA and 1.59 WHIP in 17 starts. As noted, he's lost every decision dating back to May 20, a dubious streak he'll try to break Thursday at the Padres. Yesterday, 9:02 pm
  • Update: Tulowitizki out with groin injury
    Updating a previous item, Troy Tulowitzki is missing Saturday's game against the Indians with a groin injury.

    Advice: Manager John Gibbons is hoping to have him back in a day or two but because of the team's short bench, the Jays would probably place Tulowitzki on the disabled list if the injury lingers past Monday. Ryan Goins drew the start at shortstop on Saturday. Yesterday, 1:52 pm
    10:10 am @Cle
  • Troy Tulowitzki not in Blue Jays lineup
    Troy Tulowitzki is absent from the Blue Jays starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: It's curious, as it's the second game that he has missed in the past three. Ryan Goins is starting in his place at shortstop and batting eighth for the Blue Jays against Danny Salazar and the Indians. Yesterday, 12:49 pm
    10:10 am @Cle
  • Ryon Healy (head) not in lineup on Saturday
    Ryon Healy (head) is not in the Athletics' starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Healy expected to return to action on Saturday, but the A's are playing it safe after he was hit in the head by a ground ball during Friday's game. He hit in the cage before the game and should be available off the bench. Yesterday, 12:16 pm
    10:10 am @NYM
  • Ryon Healy (head) expects to return Saturday
    Ryon Healy (head) expects to return to the Athletics' lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Healy was removed from Friday's game after a rogue ground ball hopped up and hit him in the head, but he passed all of his concussion tests and anticipates getting right back in the lineup. Still, it wouldn't be a huge surprise to see him sit for a day just as a precautionary measure. Friday, 11:09 pm
    10:10 am @NYM
  • Mookie Betts delivers 30th double in win
    Mookie Betts went 2-for-3 with a double and a walk versus the Angels on Friday.

    Advice: Betts is tied for second in the majors with 30 doubles, two behind Daniel Murphy. Those two are also the doubles kings over the last three season; Murphy has 117, Betts 114. Jose Altuve is third on that list with 109. Friday, 10:37 pm
  • Healy departs after taking grounder to face
    Ryon Healy was forced to leave Friday's game against the Mets after taking a ground ball to the face.

    Advice: The ball was sharply hit, took a bad hop and appeared to hit him in the left temple area. Healy looked very shaken up afterwards and will head for further examination. Yonder Alonso replaced him in the field in the bottom of the sixth inning. Friday, 6:09 pm
    10:10 am @NYM
  • Moss collects four RBI in defeat of Tigers
    Brandon Moss went 2-for-5 with four RBI and a run scored in a win over the Tigers on Thursday.

    Advice: Moss smacked a two-run double in the third inning and capped the scoring with a two-RBI single in the eighth, contributing four of the Royals' 16 runs on the night. It's been a big few days for the beleaguered 33-year-old, who has a pair of doubles, a homer and six RBI in the last two games. It's been a rare highlight of what's been a difficult year for Moss, who's hitting just .205/.273/.410 in 63 games overall. Thursday, 9:10 pm
    11:15 am vs CWS
  • Tulowitzki out of Jays' lineup on Thursday
    Troy Tulowitzki is getting the day off Thursday.

    Advice: Ryan Goins will start at shortstop and bat eighth versus Red Sox right-hander Doug Fister. Blue Jays center fielder Kevin Pillar is also receiving a breather in the matinee game at Fenway Park. Thursday, 8:41 am
    10:10 am @Cle
  • Hamilton goes 3-for-6 with a stolen base Wed.
    Billy Hamilton went 3-for-6 with two runs scored and a stolen base in a win over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He reached base on an infield single in the first inning, stole second and scored on a Zack Cozart single. He singled again in the third inning and was caught trying to steal another base right before a Cozart home run. He singled yet again in the bottom of the 11th and ended up scoring the winning run on an Adam Duvall single to right. Hamilton has been hot of late, boosting his line to .253/.304/.335 with two home runs and 23 RBI. He has scored 59 runs and leads the majors with 40 stolen bases. Wednesday, 10:16 pm
  • Brandon Moss homers in Royals' win
    Brandon Moss homered in the third and delivered a game-tying double in the ninth as the Royals edged the Tigers 4-3 on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Tigers scored twice in the top of the ninth to take a 3-2 lead, only to lose the game in the bottom of the inning after Moss knocked in Alcides Escobar and scored on Alex Gordon's sac fly. It might be the best game that Moss has had in 3 1/2 months as a Royal. He hadn't had a multi-RBI game since May 21. Wednesday, 9:09 pm
    11:15 am vs CWS
  • Cespedes goes 2-for-4 with two RBI, two runs
    Yoenis Cespedes went 2-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Cardinals on Wednesday.

    Advice: He laced an RBI single to left in the first inning and drove in another run with a double in the second frame. Cespedes missed about six weeks of the season with various leg injuries and has played in only 47 games so far in the 2017 campaign. He has hit well when active, slashing .277/.330/.491 with nine homers and 22 RBI. He hit 31 and 35 home runs the last two seasons and is a good bet to have a strong second half. Wednesday, 8:16 pm
  • Edwin Diaz earns 18th save on Wednesday
    Edwin Diaz earned his 18th save of the season Wednesday afternoon against the Astros.

    Advice: Diaz issued a two-out walk to Alex Bregman in the bottom of the ninth, but he struck out pinch-hitter Josh Reddick to seal a 4-1 victory for Seattle. The young right-hander has a cool 3.10 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 58/18 K/BB ratio in 40 2/3 innings this season. Wednesday, 2:15 pm
  • Gamel hits two-run homer versus Astros
    Ben Gamel hit a two-run homer in the Mariners' defeat of the Astros on Wednesday.

    Advice: It was a go-ahead drive off Astros starter Charlie Morton in the top of the fourth inning. Gamel finished 1-for-4 in the afternoon victory at Minute Maid Park. He has a surprising .319/.373/.444 batting line over 72 games this season for Seattle, though the homer Wednesday was just his fifth. Wednesday, 2:07 pm
  • Troy Tulowitzki goes 4-for-7 in loss
    Troy Tulowitzki went 4-for-7 with an RBI in Tuesday's 15-inning game against the Red Sox.

    Advice: That's the good news. The bad is that he probably cost the team the game with his atrocious baserunning. First, he stayed glued to third as the go-ahead run in the eighth while Dustin Pedroia turned a grounder into a double play. Later, in the 13th, he turned the most routine of Green Monster doubles into a single because he was apparently deked by Andrew Benintendi in left. He was then caught stealing on a strike 'em out, throw 'em out double play. At no time did it seem that any effort was present. Tuesday, 10:19 pm
    10:10 am @Cle
  • Marte singles, scores in return to action
    Starling Marte went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in his return from suspension Tuesday against the Brewers.

    Advice: Marte singled in his second at-bat and walked and scored in the Pirates' decisive four-run sixth inning. It was the first game back from an 80-game suspension for performance-enhancing drug use levied in mid-April. Pirates manager Clint Hurdle wasted no time getting the 28-year-old into the mix, batting him leadoff in his return to the lineup, and Marte should once again be one of the game's more dynamic offensive players in short order. Tuesday, 9:31 pm
  • Bucs' Marte reinstated from PED suspension
    Pirates activated OF Starling Marte from the restricted list.

    Advice: Marte has completed his 80-game suspension for PED use. He is in left field and batting leadoff for the Pirates on Tuesday in his first game back. Tuesday, 12:54 pm
  • Ariel Miranda gives up two homers to Astros
    Ariel Miranda pitched 5 2/3 innings and allowed five runs in a no-decision versus the Astros on Monday.

    Advice: Miranda seems to be losing it some; he allowed two runs or fewer in 12 of his first 17 stats, but he's given up 11 runs his last two times out. He's up to 22 homers allowed in 109 2/3 innings, which is why he has a 4.35 ERA despite an excellent 1.16 WHIP. Monday, 9:29 pm
  • Wheeler allows four earned in loss to STL
    Zack Wheeler surrendered four earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Monday as the Mets fell to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Wheeler walked four and gave up seven hits, including a two-run homer to Paul DeJong in the Cardinals' six-run sixth inning. Wheeler is now 3-7 on the season with a putrid 4.98 ERA and 1.55 WHIP. Monday, 7:51 pm
  • Cespedes (hip) returns to Mets' lineup Monday
    Yoenis Cespedes (hip) has returned to the Mets' lineup for Monday's game against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Cespedes sat out Sunday's game after tweaking his right hip while attempting to make a sliding catch, but fortunately it's not anything serious. He'll hit third against Adam Wainwright. Monday, 12:13 pm
  • Hamilton not in Monday's lineup
    Billy Hamilton is not in Monday's lineup versus the Nationals.

    Advice: It sounds like a routine day off for the speedster. Scott Schebler will start in center field while Scooter Gennett will play right. Jose Peraza is hitting leadoff against Stephen Strasburg. Monday, 6:51 am
  • Price dominates Yankees with eight scoreless
    David Price delivered his most dominant start of the season on Sunday, racking up eight strikeouts over eight shutout innings in a victory over the Yankees.

    Advice: Price scattered seven hits on the night and didn't issue a walk. After getting off to a slow start, the star southpaw is rounding back into form, posting quality starts in each of his last five outings. He sports a 3.39 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 58/19 K/BB ratio over 61 innings in his first 10 starts. He'll look to replicate this fine effort when he takes on the Angels in Los Angeles on Saturday. Sunday, 8:16 pm
  • Mookie Betts powers Red Sox to victory Sunday
    Mookie Betts clubbed a two-run homer on Sunday night, powering the Red Sox to a 3-0 victory over the Yankees and a split of their day-night doubleheader.

    Advice: Betts clubbed his two-run shot off of Yankees' starter Masahiro Tanaka in the third inning. He finished the evening 3-for-4 and also reached on an error and scored on Dustin Pedroia's RBI knock in the sixth. With the three-hit attack, Betts is slashing .274/.352/.489 with 16 homers, 55 RBI and 16 stolen bases on the season. Sunday, 8:16 pm
  • Ryon Healy picks up two-run single in win
    Ryon Healy went 1-for-4 with a two-run single in Sunday's win over the Indians.

    Advice: Healy got this party started for the A's with a two-run single off Trevor Bauer in the first inning. He has been a reliable run-producer this season, slashing .269/.302/.498 with 19 homers and 54 RBI across 337 at-bats. While Healy had been dealing with a little bout of back spasms before the All-Star break, he looks to be past that injury concern at this juncture. Sunday, 4:20 pm
    10:10 am @NYM
  • Yoenis Cespedes (hip) expected back Monday
    Mets manager Terry Collins expects Yoenis Cespedes (hip) to return to the lineup Monday.

    Advice: Cespedes left Saturday's game against the Rockies with a right hip injury and is sitting out Sunday, but he's available off the bench and it sounds like he'll miss just one start. Michael Conforto is in left field and Curtis Granderson is in center. Sunday, 7:54 am
  • Justin Bour not in Sunday's lineup
    Justin Bour is not in the Marlins' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Dee Gordon and J.T. Realmuto are also sitting out. The Marlins have Tyler Moore at first base, Derek Dietrich at second and A.J. Ellis at catcher. Sunday, 7:48 am
  • Matt Chapman hits pair of bombs Saturday
    Matt Chapman took All-Star Corey Kluber deep twice in Saturday's game against the Indians.

    Advice: Chapman, who pushed his average just above the Mendoza Line with his 3-for-3 day, connected for solo shots in the third and eighth innings off of the Klubot. Despite the big performance at the dish he will need to start hitting for a better average before he can be trusted outside of the deepest of AL-only fantasy leagues. Sunday, 12:04 am
  • Hamilton has three hits, steal against Nats
    Billy Hamilton went 3-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored in a loss to the Nationals on Saturday.

    Advice: Hamilton had a double off Nationals ace Max Scherzer among his three hits. The steal was his 39th of the year, best in the league. He's still not the prototypical leadoff hitter -- even with Saturday's good showing, Hamilton is batting .247/.300/.327 overall -- but fantasy owners could care less. Saturday, 9:34 pm
  • Diaz allows two baserunners but gets save
    Edwin Diaz allowed a hit and a walk but did not give up a run while earning a save against the White Sox on Saturday.

    Advice: He got the first two batters out before surrendering a single and a walk. He struck out Jose Abreu to end the game and snare his 15th save of the season. The young closer hasn't been as dominant as he was a year ago, although he is trending in the right direction of late. He has a 3.35 ERA with 52 strikeouts in 37 2/3 innings. He has been burned by the longball this year, having allowed eight of them already. Saturday, 8:35 pm
  • Yoenis Cespedes leaves after awkward fall
    Yoenis Cespedes left Saturday's game against the Rockies with a hip injury.

    Advice: Cespedes landed awkwardly while diving on a bloop single by Nolan Arenado in the sixth inning. With Cespedes done for the night, Michael Conforto shifted from center field to left with Curtis Granderson coming in to play center. Cespedes, who has dealt with a laundry list of nagging injuries this year, went 1-for-3 with a single before exiting. He'll be reevaluated on Sunday. Saturday, 7:23 pm
  • Betts has two hits, steal vs. Yankees
    Mookie Betts went 2-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored in Friday’s win over the Yankees.

    Advice: Betts led off the bottom of the ninth with an infield single against Aroldis Chapman and later scored the tying run. The 24-year-old has been pretty quiet at the plate since his two-homer, eight RBI performance against the Blue Jays on July 2, but he’s still putting together another monster season. Betts has more walks (42) than strikeouts (35) while batting .274/.351/.489 with 16 homers, 53 RBI, 16 steals, and 62 runs scored through 98 games. Friday, 9:09 pm
  • Edwin Diaz makes it look easy in save
    Edwin Diaz struck out two of the three batters he faced Friday against the White Sox for his 14th save of the year.

    Advice: Diaz had three straight bad appearances to finish June, but he's allowed just one run and amassed a 9/1 K/BB ratio in 5 2/3 innings in July. Friday, 8:41 pm
  • Cespedes has four-hit night vs. Rockies
    Yoenis Cespedes went 4-for-6 with an RBI single and a run scored in Friday’s blowout win over the Rockies.

    Advice: Cespedes appeared to have some extra pep in his step while amassing three singles and a double. The All-Star break was probably good for him. He ended the first half with a 2-for-23 slide, so this was nice to see. Friday, 8:29 pm
  • Bour has two-run double in loss
    Justin Bour went 1-for-4 with a two-run double in Friday’s loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: His double put the Marlins ahead in the bottom of the fifth inning, but the Dodgers rallied against closer A.J. Ramos in the ninth. Bour has already driven in 11 runs this month. The 29-year-old slugger has enjoyed a breakout campaign with a .288/.366/.555 batting line to go along with 20 homers and 61 RBI. He’d likely net a nice return in a trade, but the Marlins are reluctant to move him. Friday, 7:32 pm
