  • Mets recall Gavin Cecchini from Las Vegas
    Mets recalled INF Gavin Cecchini from Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Cecchini will give the Mets much-needed infield depth. He was batting .267/.329/.380 through 497 plate appearances this season at the Triple-A level. Rotoworld.com 15 minutes ago

  • Mets recall Matt Reynolds from AAA Vegas
    Mets recalled INF/OF Matt Reynolds from Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Reynolds is starting at third base and hitting eighth Thursday night against Yankees right-hander Luis Severino. The 26-year-old utility infielder holds a .217/.265/.377 career batting line at the major league level. Rotoworld.com 17 minutes ago

  • Yankees recall 1B Tyler Austin from Triple-A
    Yankees recalled 1B Tyler Austin from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: Austin fractured his left foot in February and then promptly strained his hamstring when the Yankees promoted in late June, but the 25-year-old first baseman had been hitting the ball well at Triple-A over the last couple of weeks and has earned another callup before the expansion of MLB rosters in September. That said, it's not clear how much he's going to play in New York. Rotoworld.com 36 minutes ago

  • O's outright Ruben Tejada to AAA Norfolk
    Orioles sent INF Ruben Tejada outright to Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: The move opens a roster spot for utility infielder Ryan Flaherty, who was activated from the 60-day disabled list in a corresponding move. Tejada batted .230/.293/.283 in 41 games with Baltimore. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:16 am

  • Orioles activate Ryan Flaherty from DL
    Orioles activated INF Ryan Flaherty from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Flaherty will rejoin the O's ahead of Friday night's series opener against the Angels after missing the last three months with a shoulder injury. The 31-year-old utility infielder hit the ball pretty well on his 16-game minor league rehab assignment, but he holds a weak .216/.285/.356 career batting line in the majors and will not be fantasy-relevant down the stretch.

  • Hanigan scratched Thursday due to illness
    Ryan Hanigan was scratched from the Rockies' lineup Thursday due to a stomach virus.

    Advice: Jonathan Lucroy will now start at catcher and bat fifth versus Braves right-hander Lucas Sims. Hanigan is day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:50 am

  • Red Sox activate Roenis Elias off 60-day DL
    Red Sox activated LHP Roenis Elias from the 60-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Elias is recovered from his intercostal and lat injuries and has already made some starts at Triple-A. The 29-year-old left-hander has not made an appearance at the major league level in 2017, but he could join the Red Sox in a long relief role when rosters expand in September.

  • Red Sox DFA right-hander Noe Ramirez
    Red Sox designated RHP Noe Ramirez for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a 40-man roster spot for Roenis Elias, who has been activated off the 60-day disabled list and optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket. Ramirez was sporting a decent 3.51 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 57/16 K/BB ratio in 48 2/3 innings of relief this season with Pawtucket and could draw some interest on waivers. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:35 am

  • Tomas has another setback with groin injury
    Yasmany Tomas has experienced another setback with his right groin.

    Advice: He's off to Philadelphia to meet with a specialist. Tomas has been out since the first week of June and there is obviously no timetable for his return at this point. He could very well be done for the year. Tomas, 26, is owed $13.5 million in 2018, $15.5 million in 2019, and $17 million in 2020. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:45 am

  • De La Rosa to undergo Tommy John surgery
    Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo announced Thursday that Rubby De La Rosa needs Tommy John surgery.

    Advice: De La Rosa has been plagued by arm issues all season, logging just 7 2/3 total innings of relief at the major league level. This will be the second Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery of his career and his rehab will likely last through the entire 2018 campaign. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:28 am

  • Diamondbacks send Anthony Banda to AAA
    Diamondbacks optioned LHP Anthony Banda to Triple-A Reno.

    Advice: Banda got lit up for eight earned runs over just four innings in his last start Tuesday against the Astros. The 23-year-old southpaw should get another shot when rosters expand in September. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:53 am

  • Ethier (back) plays third rehab game
    Andre Ethier (back) went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts and a walk Wednesday in his third rehab game with High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

    Advice: The promising news is he was able to play six innings in left field without his back flaring up. Ethier will likely join the Dodgers when rosters expand in September, assuming he can avoid further setbacks. The veteran outfielder has been sidelined all season. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:46 am
    60-Day DL
     
  • Logan Forsythe doubles twice in win
    Logan Forsythe doubled twice and walked Wednesday against the White Sox.

    Advice: Forsythe has been a definite disappointment offensively, with the obvious caveat that it hasn't stopped the Dodgers from going 85-34 so far. If he can get hot down the stretch, it just adds more length to a lineup that's already plenty long. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:02 pm
  • Bailey allows six runs in 5 2/3 vs Cubs
    Homer Bailey struck out 10 Cubs but coughed up six runs in 5 2/3 innings on Wednesday.

    Advice: It was a tale of one bad inning -- he served up a grand slam to Anthony Rizzo in the first frame. He was able to settle down from there but the damage was done. Luckily for him the Reds came back to tie the game and spare him a loss. The 10 strikeouts doubled his previous single-game high of five this year but that bit of good news was spoiled by walking five batters in the contest. Bailey has made 11 starts since recovering from Tommy John surgery and the results have been heinous to put it politely. He has a frightful 8.44 ERA and an unholy 2.04 WHIP in 53 1/3 innings. His velocity is back to normal but his command is non-existent. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:34 pm
  • Reddick goes 2-for-5 with a homer, three RBI
    Josh Reddick went 2-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: He delivered an RBI single in the fourth inning, then walloped a two run blast in the eighth to put the game out of reach. The 20-year-old outfielder has gotten to play nearly every day this year and has delivered solid production. He has a .295 batting average with 12 home runs, 58 RBI, 65 runs and seven steals in 104 games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:08 pm
  • Matt Reynolds, Cecchini heading to New York
    Matt Reynolds is on his way to New York to join the Mets.

    Advice: So is Gavin Cecchini. The Mets haven't made any roster moves yet but it may be good to have Reynolds and Cecchini handy with Jose Reyes (ribcage) and Wilmer Flores (ribcage) both hurt. The Mets were so shorthanded on Wednesday that catcher Travis d'Arnaud drew the start at third base. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:57 pm

  • Banda pounded for eight runs by Astros
    Anthony Banda was torched for eight earned runs over just four innings Tuesday in a loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Banda had a clean first inning, but the Astros exploded for five runs in the second inning, two in the third inning, and one more in the fourth. The 23-year-old left-hander now has a 7.32 ERA over his first four major league starts. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:02 pm

  • Logan Forsythe absent versus San Diego
    Logan Forsythe is not in the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Padres.

    Advice: He's just getting a breather. Chase Utley will fill in at second base and bat seventh against Friars right-hander Jhoulys Chacin. Forsythe has hit a sluggish .205 with no homers and 27 strikeouts over 73 second-half at-bats. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:53 pm
  • Yankees activate and option Tyler Austin
    Yankees activated 1B Tyler Austin from the 10-day disabled list, optioned him to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: Austin had been on the shelf since suffering a right hamstring strain in late June. He'll be back with the big league club once rosters expand in September. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:11 am

  • Homer Bailey respectable over five frames
    Homer Bailey surrendered two runs on five hits over five innings in Friday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: While the game ended 11-10 in the Reds' favor, almost all of that run-scoring damage by the Brewers came after Bailey left the game. During his time on the mound, only a two-run home run by Manny Pina put any hurt on his earned run mark. He probably would have lasted longer in the game had it not been for five walks which caused his pitch count to rise in a hurry. Bailey will carry a still-bloated 8.31 ERA and 2.03 WHIP (10 starts) into a road outing against the Cubs next time he takes to the mound. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:24 pm
  • Banda will make another start for D'Backs
    Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Friday that Anthony Banda will make another start for the club on Tuesday against the Astros.

    Advice: The 23-year-old left-hander has compiled a 4.60 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 16/5 K/BB ratio over 15 2/3 innings in his first three starts at the big league level. He isn't a recommended streaming option against the juggernaut that is the Astros' offense however. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:05 pm

  • Banda gives up three runs in loss to Dodgers
    Anthony Banda surrendered three runs on four hits over four innings in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: All three runs on Banda's line scored in the first inning when Kike Hernandez hit a bases-clearing double to bring home three. He settled in over the next three innings before being lifted from action. In three starts this season, the 23-year-old southpaw holds a 4.60 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. Depending on when Robbie Ray (concussion) is ready to return, Banda might not be needed during the next turn through the rotation. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:24 pm

  • Andre Ethier (back) closing in on rehab games
    Andre Ethier (back) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment with High-A Rancho Cucamonga in the coming days.

    Advice: While Ethier is nearing a rehab assignment, nothing in his timetable has changed. The Dodgers do not expect to activate him from the disabled list until roster expand at the beginning of September. The veteran outfielder has yet to play in a game this season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:40 pm
    60-Day DL
     
  • Tomas (groin) doing baserunning drills
    Yasmany Tomas (groin) has continued his baserunning progression, but there's no timetable for when he'll return to game action.

    Advice: Tomas had to be pulled off his rehab assignment early last month after aggravating his groin injury. He's making progress, but a return isn't imminent. Tomas no longer has a starting job waiting for him when he returns, anyway, following the Diamondbacks' acquisition of J.D. Martinez. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:09 am

  • Flaherty (shoulder) goes 3-for-4 in rehab
    Ryan Flaherty (shoulder) went 3-for-4 with a double and a homer Tuesday in a rehab game with Double-A Bowie.

    Advice: Flaherty has now played in 11 minor league rehab games and would seem to be fully recovered from his right shoulder injury, but the Orioles are clearly in no rush to add him back to the major league roster. Flaherty's rehab clock is scheduled to run out on August 15, so a decision will have to be made at some point soon. The 31-year-old utilityman is out of minor league options. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:04 pm
  • Banda to start Thursday against the LAD
    Anthony Banda will make another start for the Diamondbacks on Thursday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Banda pitched well in his second major league start last Friday against the Giants, yielding just one run on three hits over six innings to earn his first career win. The 23-year-old left-hander was ranked a top-100 prospect by Baseball America leading into the 2017 season. He's filling in for Robbie Ray, who remains sidelined with a concussion.
