  • Tyler Anderson (knee) lands back on DL
    Rockies placed LHP Tyler Anderson on the 10-day disabled list with left knee inflammation.

    Advice: It was reported that Anderson left Sunday's start with a hamstring cramp, but he's back on the DL with the same injury he just returned from. He missed three weeks with the ailment the first time around but the Rockies might proceed more cautiously this time. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:50 pm

    Joey Gallo (hamstring) has returned to the Rangers' starting lineup Monday against the Indians.

    Advice: Gallo missed back-to-back starts over the weekend with hamstring soreness, but he's apparently feeling better. He'll bat ninth against Carlos Carrasco. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:27 pm
  • Hamels (oblique) activated from disabled list
    Rangers activated LHP Cole Hamels from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: Hamels, out since early May with a right oblique strain, allowed one run in 8 2/3 innings with eight strikeouts and two walks through two minor league rehab starts. He'll make his return to the Rangers' rotation Monday against the Indians. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:22 pm
  • Four scoreless for Cease
    Cubs prospect Dylan Cease didn't allow a run in his four innings of work for Low-A South Bend on Sunday.

    Advice: Cease didn't allow a hit in those four innings, and he walked just two while striking out five. The Cubs are takings things very slowly with Cease, but he's missing bats at an elite level (65 strikeouts in 42 1/3 innings) and throwing enough strikes to make his stuff relevant. There's still a very good chance he ends up pitching in relief, but there's at least a chance he ends up a starter, and a very good one at that. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:35 am

  • Strong outing for Szapucki
    Mets prospect Thomas Szapucki pitched six innings of shutout baseball on Sunday for Low-A Columbia.

    Advice: In those six innings, Szapucki allowed just two hits and two walks, and he struck out ten. Szapucki doesn't get the attention of some of the other Met arms, but he should. He's a southpaw with two plus pitches, and his change is making some progress, as his command. He's at least a couple of years away from seeing the big leagues, but in terms of just upside, he's as talented as any hurler in the New York system. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:01 am

  • Bird to take BP this week
    Greg Bird (ankle, knee) will take batting practice for the next few days with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: Bird was forced to pause his minor league rehab assignment earlier this month after he fouled a ball off his right knee. There's no clear timetable for his return to game action. Bird originally landed on the disabled list in early May with a nagging injury to his right ankle. The Yankees appear increasingly likely to be in the market for a first base-type leading into the trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:53 am

    A.J. Pollock (groin, quad) will play his next rehab game with Triple-A Reno on Tuesday.

    Advice: Pollock recently took a break from his rehab stint after tweaking his quad a week ago, but he played four innings and took three at-bats on Sunday. Barring any further setbacks, he's likely a few days away from rejoining the Diamondbacks. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:30 am

  • Adames continues his strong June
    Rays prospect Willy Adames went 3-for-5 on Sunday for Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: One of the hits was a double, and Adames also scored a run. He's crushed the ball in June, and he's not hitting .395/.490/.605 for the month. The Rays are absolutely in contention and may not want to call up Adames until they're sure he's ready to play everyday. He sure looks like he's ready to play everyday. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:02 am

  • Meadows expected to miss four weeks
    Pirates prospect outfielder Austin Meadows is expected to miss up to four weeks after receiving a platelet rich plasma (PRP) injection last week for a right hamstring tear.

    Advice: Meadows suffered the injury last week. It's the latest frustrating development for the 22-year-old, who has struggled to the tune of a .248/.313/.358 batting line with four homers and 35 RBI through 64 games this season in Triple-A. Meadows was mentioned as a possibility for a call-up after Starling Marte's PED suspension back in April, but the Pirates didn't think he was ready at the time. At this point, the priority should be getting him healthy to finish the year on a high note. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:35 am

  • Anderson suffers hamstring cramp
    Tyler Anderson suffered a hamstring cramp during his start against the Dodgers on Sunday.

    Advice: Anderson was making his first start in 3 1/2 weeks after landing on the disabled list with left knee inflammation. The southpaw began his outing with two scoreless innings before things went south in the third. He lobbied to stay in the game before being replaced by Jordan Lyles. He'll be reevaluated before the Rockies decide on the next step. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:11 am

  • Franklin (hamstring) appears as pinch-hitter
    Nick Franklin (hamstring) flew out as a pinch-hitter Sunday against the Braves.

    Advice: Franklin left Friday's game with hamstring tightness and was ejected from Saturday's game after yelling something from the dugout. The 26-year-old is hitting .195/.258/.317 with two homers and 10 RBI over 53 games this season in a utility role. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:53 am

  • Anderson surrenders four runs against Dodgers
    Tyler Anderson allowed four runs on five hits over 2 1/3 innings while taking a no-decision in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Anderson tossed a pair of scoreless frames before running into trouble in the third inning, when he surrendered two-run homers to Kike Hernandez and Cody Bellinger to almost completely erase what had been a 5-0 advantage. Anderson struck out one while walking two in the short outing. He made the start in place of German Marquez, who has been pushed back to toe the rubber against the Giants on Monday. It is not clear at this juncture whether Anderson will receive another start or be dropped back into the bullpen. Either way, he has struggled to a 6.11 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in 63 1/3 innings.

  • Gallo (hamstring) being re-evaluated in Texas
    Joey Gallo (hamstring) has been sent back to Texas to be re-evaluated.

    Advice: Gallo is missing a second straight start with a sore right hamstring. The Rangers are hopeful that he can rejoin the club on Monday in Cleveland, but more will be known after he's examined. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:23 am
  • Joey Gallo (hamstring) out again Sunday
    Joey Gallo (hamstring) remained out of the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's missed two straight starts with a sore hamstring. Gallo remains day-to-day. The Rangers have Adrian Beltre at third base, Mike Napoli at first, Rougned Odor in the designated hitter spot and Drew Robinson at second base. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:51 am
  • David Price dealing with cracked fingernail
    David Price dealt with a cracked fingernail during Saturday's start versus the Angels.

    Advice: It didn't result in an early exit, as Price threw 103 pitches over his six innings. The left-hander has dealt with the same issue before and he's expected to be fine for his next outing. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:24 am
  • Price notches quality start, loss vs. Angels
    David Price allowed three runs -- two earned -- over six innings in a loss to the Angels on Saturday.

    Advice: Price gave up six hits and a walk while striking out five in the largely uneventful start. And even with the loss, there are positives to take from the start that weren't present in recent outings -- mostly, that he walked just one without giving up a homer. He's now given up three runs or fewer in five of his six starts, but a bad game against the Yankees and the fact that he hasn't been terribly efficient makes his 4.76 ERA look worse than maybe it has been in actuality. A date with the Twins on Thursday could cure what ails for Price. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:06 pm
  • A.J. Pollock (groin) to resume rehab Sunday
    A.J. Pollock (groin, quad) will resume his rehab assignment with Triple-A Reno on Sunday.

    Advice: He hasn't played since tweaking his quad on Monday. According to Steve Gilbert of MLB.com, the Diamondbacks are looking to get Pollock 10 at-bats before bringing him up to the big leagues. Barring another setback, Pollock should be back in Arizona by mid-week. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:43 pm

  • Russell goes 2-for-4 with two runs scored Sat
    Addison Russell went 2-for-4 and scored two runs in Saturday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: He reached base twice and was driven in by Javier Baez twice. The young shortstop has taken a step back at the plate this year, although he has been heating up lately. Perhaps he's turned a corner in his development. The 23-year-old shortstop is batting .235/.302/.412 with seven homers, 36 runs and 29 RBI in 248 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:33 pm

    Tyler Anderson will start Sunday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: German Marquez was scheduled to go Sunday, but instead he'll start Monday against the Giants. Anderson's role has been unclear since coming off the disabled list earlier this week. He pitched an inning of relief on Thursday, though the majority of his outings this year have come as a starter. He's fared poorly against the Dodgers this year, going 0-3 with a 5.74 ERA in three starts. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:11 pm

  • Nick Franklin tossed for arguing Saturday
    Nick Franklin was ejected for arguing Saturday against the Braves.

    Advice: Franklin wasn't in the lineup after leaving the previous night's game with hamstring tightness, but was thrown out by second base umpire Jerry Meals for something he said from the dugout. Apparently he was upset the Braves were allowed to challenge a pickoff play at first base after waiting longer than their allotted 30 seconds. The ejection occurred with one out in the first inning.

  • Gallo hitless in loss to Yankees
    Joey Gallo finished 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Friday’s extra-inning loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Gallo had a big day at the plate on Wednesday, but he’s 0-for-8 with six strikeouts since. The 23-year-old slugger is hitting just .155 (9-for-58) with three home runs and 24 strikeouts this month. He still leads the Rangers with 19 home runs, but his batting average is down to .194 on the year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:37 pm
  • Ramirez slugs two-run homer vs. Angels
    Hanley Ramirez slugged a two-run homer Friday against the Angels.

    Advice: Ramirez took Alex Meyer deep in the fourth inning for his 10th home run of the season. It was also the 250th home run of his career. The 33-year-old has dealt with a nagging shoulder injury for most of the season, which provides context to his disappointing .240/.340/.406 batting line. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:13 pm

  • Cole Hamels (oblique) on track to return Mon.
    Cole Hamels (oblique) is on track to rejoin the Rangers' rotation on Monday in Cleveland.

    Advice: That's assuming things go as planned during his bullpen session Friday. Hamels allowed just one run while striking out eight over 8 2/3 innings in two rehab starts, going 5 2/3 frames and throwing 81 pitches in his final outing Wednesday. The veteran lefty should be ready for close to a full workload versus the Tribe. Hamels has been out since early May with a strained right oblique. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:18 pm
  • Tyler Anderson hasn't been told his role
    Tyler Anderson said Thursday that Rockies manager Bud Black has not told him what his role will be.

    Advice: Anderson tossed a scoreless relief inning Thursday versus the Diamondbacks in his first appearance since being activated from the disabled list. He'd seem to be a good bet to rejoin the rotation at some point, but it's unclear when that might be. The Rockies currently have six starters and are poised to get a seventh next week when Jon Gray (foot) returns. They'll likely wind up mixing and matching as they look to keep the workloads down for their young starters. "As far as a plan, things will become clear here over the next couple of days," Black said Thursday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:25 am

  • Jackson's three RBI propel Indians past O's
    Austin Jackson went 3-for-5 with a triple, three RBI and a run scored in the Indians' 6-3 win over the Orioles on Thursday.

    Advice: Jackson swatted an RBI triple and scored a run in the second inning, and he tacked on a two-run single with the bases loaded in the third. The 30-year-old has come on strong in recent days, going 8-for-19 with two doubles, a triple and a homer in his last five games. He's still a situational player but he's being used well by the Tribe, hitting .301/.382/.516 in 34 games this year. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:10 pm

  • Russell powers Cubs with homer, four hits
    Addison Russell went 4-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored as the Cubs pounded the Marlins 11-1 on Thursday.

    Advice: The Cubs' cleanup hitter on this day certainly did his fair share of cleaning up, homering in the seventh inning and knocking two more doubles over the course of the game. It's been a difficult year for the 23-year-old, but he's now hitting .297 (14-for-47) with four homers this month. Overall, Russell still has some work to do on his .234/.304/.413 line.

  • Hamels (oblique) sharp in rehab game
    Cole Hamels (oblique) allowed just one run on two hits over 5 2/3 innings Wednesday in a rehab start with Double-A Frisco.

    Advice: Hamels made it to 81 pitches in the outing. "It was good, being able to get into the sixth inning," said Hamels, who was scheduled to go only five innings. "I know we were shooting for five with the pitch count we set. Just getting out there and being able to get into a rhythm, especially seeing how I feel with the long innings and warming up and keeping everything going smoothly. That was something we were doing really well." The left-hander should be cleared to return to the Rangers' rotation next week. He's been out since May 3 with a strained oblique.

  • Meadows undergoing tests on hamstring
    Pirates prospect Austin Meadows tweaked his right hamstring Wednesday in a game at Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: He is scheduled to undergo an MRI and will likely spend a bit of time on the Triple-A disabled list. Meadows, the ninth overall pick in the 2013 MLB Draft, has batted just .248/.313/.358 with four home runs in 64 games this season for Indy. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:12 am

  • Gallo goes 3-for-4 with a bomb vs Blue Jays
    Joey Gallo went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and three runs scored in a loss to the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

    Advice: Gallo is known for his prodigious power but his home run today was actually of the inside-the-park variety. He hit the ball the opposite way and the left fielder crashed into the wall trying to catch it. Gallo circled the bases and glided home without a throw before the shortstop could run out and retrieve the ball. He also doubled twice in the ballgame. The multi-hit night enabled him to boost his batting average above the Mendoza line. He is batting .201/.298/.522 with 19 home runs and 39 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:12 pm

    Addison Russell's wife Melissa stated through her attorney Wednesday that she will not speak to MLB investigators about recent allegations of domestic violence.

    Advice: Melissa Russell's friend wrote on social media earlier this month that the Cubs shortstop "physically and mentally abused" his wife during their relationship. Addison has denied those claims and Melissa isn't talking, but the two are in the process of a divorce and there's still the possibility of a suspension under Major League Baseball's domestic violence policy.

    Advice: It's why Ramirez is out of the starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon against the Royals, to get him two days off in a row ahead of Friday night's series opener against the Angels.

    A.J. Pollock (groin, quad) will be held out of action at Triple-A Reno for at least the next three days.

    Advice: Pollock, who's been on the disabled list since May 15 with a right groin strain, experienced tightness in his right quad Monday while playing in his second minor league rehab game. It doesn't sound like a major setback, but it will obviously delay his return a little bit.

    Austin Jackson doubled twice, knocked in three runs and walked Monday against the Orioles.

    Advice: Another nice game from the player the A's should have signed to be their starting center fielder. Jackson, who is mostly starting against lefties for the Indians, has a .296 average and a .900 OPS in 81 at-bats. Since he has the limited role and he's not a basestealer these days, his AL-only value remains fairly limited. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:29 pm

    A.J. Pollock (groin) departed Monday's rehab game with Triple-A Reno due to right quad tightness.

    Advice: It appears to be unrelated to the right groin strain that sent Pollock to the disabled list, but it's nonetheless a discouraging development. Pollock was playing in his second rehab game with Reno and had been slated for activation later this week. That certainly seems unlikely to happen now.

    David Price struggled, yet still earned his second victory of the season on Sunday, giving up three runs on eight hits over five-plus innings of work.

    Advice: Price walked three and struck out three on the night. The Astros scratched out a run against him in the first inning, then Carlos Correa tacked on a solo homer in the fifth. Price was sent back out to start the sixth inning despite having thrown 106 pitches already, and promptly served up a homer to Jake Marisnick before getting pulled. He owns a 5.14 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 24/14 K/BB ratio over 28 innings in his five starts. He'll do battle against the Angels his next time out on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Jun 18, 9:24 pm
  • Joey Gallo strikes out thrice in loss to M's
    Joey Gallo went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Gallo will do that from time to time. He is hitting .194/.291/.502 with 18 homers and 38 RBI on the season, but while the production remains on the power front overall, he has largely struggled this month. Rotoworld.com Jun 18, 4:04 pm
  • Hamels' (oblique) final rehab start Wednesday
    Cole Hamels (oblique) will make what could be his final rehab start with Double-A Frisco on Wednesday.

    Advice: Hamels struck out three while yielding just one hit in his first rehab outing for Frisco last Friday. He'll go a little deeper into Wednesday's game and if things go well should be cleared to rejoin the Rangers' rotation the following week. Rotoworld.com Jun 18, 10:48 am
  • Addison Russell (ankle) sitting out Sunday
    Addison Russell is not in the Cubs' lineup Sunday after turning his ankle during Saturday's game.

    Advice: It's not viewed as a big deal, as Russell is expected to be available off the bench. He should return to the lineup in a day or two. Javier Baez is at shorstop Sunday and Ian Happ is at second base. Rotoworld.com Jun 18, 9:13 am

  • Addison Russell starting to heat up
    Addison Russell finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's game at Pittsburgh.

    Advice: Russell has been hot since returning from a personal absence, going 7-for-23 (.304) with two doubles, three home runs, four runs scored and seven RBI over the past six outings. He is still hitting just .220 overall, but finally showing signs of breaking out. Rotoworld.com Jun 18, 1:28 am

  • Austin Jackson reaches base four times
    Austin Jackson went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, two walks and two runs scored in Game 2 of a doubleheader in Minnesota on Saturday.

    Advice: Jackson has picked up the pace in June, raising his average from .255 to .286. However, Saturday's home run marked his first extra-base hit since June 4, and his first round-tripper dating back to May 29. Rotoworld.com Jun 18, 12:21 am

  • Hanley Ramirez (neck) absent again Saturday
    Hanley Ramirez (neck) remains out of the Red Sox lineup Saturday against the Astros.

    Advice: It will be his third straight absence. Ramirez has been battling a pinched nerve in his neck. The injury occurred after he played first base for just the second time this season Wednesday in Philadelphia. Chris Young will serve as the DH Saturday night against Astros starter David Paulino.

  • Yankees recall Mason Williams from Triple-A
    Yankees recalled OF Mason Williams from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: The prevailing thought was that Aaron Hicks would be heading to the disabled list with an Achilles tendon injury he suffered on Thursday, but that isn't the case. Williams will provide depth in the outfield for at least a couple of games while the club decides how they'd like to proceed on Hicks. Rotoworld.com Jun 16, 3:54 pm

  • Hanley Ramirez (neck) not available Friday
    Hanley Ramirez is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Friday due to a pinching sensation in his neck.

    Advice: He's also unavailable off of the bench. It's the same issue that kept him sidelined on Thursday and there's a chance it develops into something that could require a trip to the disabled list. Rotoworld.com Jun 16, 3:47 pm

  • A.J. Pollock (groin) cleared for rehab games
    A.J. Pollock (groin) is scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment Saturday.

    Advice: He'll play five innings in his rehab debut and could return to the Diamondbacks' active roster next week if everything goes smoothly. Pollock has been on the disabled list since May 15 because of a Grade 1 strain of his right groin. The dynamic center fielder was batting .299/.337/.455 with two home runs and 11 stolen bases through 37 games this season for Arizona. Rotoworld.com Jun 16, 2:24 pm

  • Mason Williams joining Yankees in Oakland
    Mason Williams is on his way to Oakland to join up with the Yankees.

    Advice: That's a pretty good indication that Aaron Hicks will be placed on the disabled list after suffering an Achilles tendon injury on Thursday night. Williams, a former top-100 prospect, has batted just .243/.289/.275 in 59 games this season at the Triple-A level and probably won't hold any fantasy relevance with New York.
