  • Urias homers
    Padres prospect Luis Urias homered on Sunday for Double-A El Paso.

    Advice: That homer gives Urias three on the season. Power is not a big part of Urias's game, but it doesn't have to be for him to be fantasy relevant. He has one of the best projected hit tools in all of baseball. He's spending just as much time at second as he is at shortstop right now, and while he'd be more valuable on the third-base side of the bag, he's an everyday player either way.

  • Gonsalves lit up on Sunday
    Twins prospect Stephen Gonsalves gave up six runs in just three innings of work on Sunday for Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: Gonsalves gave up eight hits, walked three, and struck out one. He also gave up three homers. It's a small sample size, but in his three starts since the promotion, he has given up 16 hits in 16 innings, and the ERA sits at 5.08. That's mostly due to this last outing, but it's still a bummer considering how good he was at Double-A Chattanooga. The upside is undeniable, but you probably won't see it in Minnesota until 2018.

  • Three hits for Crawford
    Phillies prospect J.P. Crawford picked up three hits on Sunday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: All three hits for singles. Crawford has been crushing the ball since July, so a three-hit game is no surprise. What was surprising was that for the first time in his career, he played third base. He's no longer a plus-plus defender at short, but he's still a competent defender at the premium position. What this (might) tell us is that the Phillies want to expand his flexibility. If Crawford wasn't hitting this well, that wouldn't happen. This is a good sign. Rotoworld.com 27 minutes ago

  • Strong six innings for Puk
    Athletics prospect A.J. Puk gave up one run over six innings on Sunday for Double-A Midland.

    Advice: Puk allowed five hits and two walks, and he struck out seven. His 4.91 ERA in Midland isn't ideal, but he's struck out 68 hitters in just over 51 innings, and that he's kept the ball in the park (3 homers in 112 1/3 innings all year). He's not a finished product, but he should be ready to pitch in the Athletic rotation by the middle of next year. Rotoworld.com 43 minutes ago

  • DL a possitility for Gallo
    The Rangers have Ryan Rua en route to Anaheim in case Joey Gallo needs to go on the disabled list because of his nasal fracture.

    Advice: Gallo was hurt in a collision with Matt Bush on Sunday. Rua would enter the DH mix with catchers Brett Nicholas and Robinson Chirinos if Gallo is forced to the DL. We'll probably know more later this afternoon. Rotoworld.com 50 minutes ago

  • Kingery picks up three hits, homers.
    Phillies prospect Scott Kingery went 3-for-4 with a homer on Sunday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: The homer is the eighth since Kingery was promoted to Triple-A, and his 26th overall. This was the 48th pick in the 2015 draft, so it's not like this came completely out of nowhere. Having said that, no one could have seen him becoming one of the best infield prospects in baseball. With the Phillies destined for a two-two pick, there's no reason to not see what Kingery can do at the highest level. Rotoworld.com 51 minutes ago

  • Acuna continues impressive run
    Braves prospect Ronald Acuna went 3-for-5 on Sunday for Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: One of the hits was a double, and Acuna also scored a run with two RBI for good measure. In the month of August, he's hitting .403, and slugging .675. He won't turn 20 until the end of the year. This is ridiculous. He's the best fantasy prospect in baseball. Rotoworld.com 55 minutes ago

  • Twins call up DH Kennys Vargas
    Twins recalled 1B/DH Kennys Vargas from Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: Vargas takes Miguel Sano's spot on the roster and should see a lot of time at DH with Robbie Grossman also down, making him a worthy play in AL-only leagues. He's hit .243/.289/.429 in 177 at-bats for the Twins this year. He'd been hot of late in Triple-A, hitting .394/.447/.545 in nine games since his previous one-day stint in the majors on Aug. 9.

  • Twins demote, recall LHP Turley
    Twins optioned LHP Nik Turley to Triple-A Rochester, recalled him as the 26th man in Monday's doubleheader.

    Advice: The paper move gives the Twins more flexibility with their roster as they could down the days until the expansion on Sept. 1. Turley has given up 17 runs over 10 innings for the Twins this year. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:55 am
  • White Sox call up Fulmer to start
    White Sox recalled RHP Carson Fulmer from Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Fulmer is up as the 26th man for today's doubleheader. He'll start Game 2 against the Twins and then likely get sent back to Triple-A to make room for Lucas Giolito on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:34 am

  • Cardinals send down first baseman Voit
    Cardinals optioned first baseman Luke Voit to Triple-A Memphis.

    Advice: As suspected, Stephen Piscotty will stick around, giving the Cardinals three options to rotate in right field (Randal Grichuk and Jose Martinez being the other two). Voit started out on fire after getting the call in late June, but his production hadn't continued in limited playing time since the Cardinals got healthier and he had started just two games in August. He'll be back on Sept. 1. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:09 am

  • Gallo suffers non-displaced nasal fracture
    Joey Gallo suffered a non-displaced nasal fracture during his collision with teammate Matt Bush on Sunday.

    Advice: He'll be re-examined on Monday before potentially joining the team in Los Angeles. In addition to the nose injury, he'll have to pass through the concussion protocol before he's cleared to rejoin the Rangers. It remains unclear if he'll require a trip to the disabled list, but it seems likely he'll miss at least a couple of games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:44 pm

  • Buster Posey collects two hits in loss Sunday
    Buster Posey went 2-for-3 with an RBI as the Giants fell to the Phillies on Sunday.

    Advice: Posey got the Giants on the board and evened the score at 1-1 with a run-scoring single in the fourth inning. He also drew a walk in the ballgame, reaching base safely three times in four trips to the plate. Posey is having another outstanding season at the dish, slashing .321/.410/.477 with 12 homers and 53 RBI in 111 games played. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:29 pm
  • Bumgarner whiffs seven in no-decision Sunday
    Madison Bumgarner was terrific in a no-decision against the Phillies on Sunday, racking up seven strikeouts over six innings of one-run ball.

    Advice: Bumgarner allowed just four hits and a walk on the afternoon. The only blemish on his day was an RBI double by Pedro Florimon in the second inning. He departed in line for his fourth victory of the season (after his own go-ahead RBI single in the fifth), but the Giants' bullpen was unable to oblige. Bumgarner will bring a 2.87 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 74/14 K/BB ratio into Saturday's start against the Diamondbacks in Arizona. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:29 pm
  • Joey Gallo leaves game after collision Sunday
    Joey Gallo was removed from Sunday's game against the White Sox after colliding with teammate Matt Bush while converging on a pop fly in the eighth inning.

    Advice: Gallo was hit in the head during the exchange and suffered swelling in his nose and upper lip. He'll head for precautionary X-rays of his nose and cheek bone to rule out any structural damage. He'll also have to pass through the concussion protocol before being cleared to return to game action. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:10 pm

  • Trea Turner (wrist) set for rehab assignment
    Trea Turner (wrist) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Syracuse on Monday.

    Advice: It's unclear how many rehab games Turner will need, but he's missed nearly two months of action so he'll need to knock some rust off. Still, a return before the end of the month, or perhaps even before the end of the week, would seem to be doable. Turner still ranks as the No. 4 shortstop in fantasy this season even after all the missed time. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:55 am

  • Alec Asher recalled from Triple-A
    Orioles recalled RHP Alec Asher from Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: Asher has posted a 5.53 ERA over 21 appearances -- six starts -- for the Orioles this season. He'll give the bullpen some length. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:21 am

  • Carson Fulmer to start Monday versus Twins
    Carson Fulmer will be called up to start the second game of Monday's doubleheader against the Twins.

    Advice: He'll be added as the 26th man while Lucas Giolito, who had been slated to go in Game 2, will have his start pushed back to Tuesday. Fulmer has yet to pitch in the big leagues this year after making eight appearances for the Pale Hose in 2016. Monday will be his first major league start. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:58 pm

  • Twins call up Nik Turley from Rochester
    Twins recalled LHP Nik Turley from Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: Buddy Boshers was optioned to Rochester in the corresponding move. The Twins wanted a fresh bullpen arm for the second game of their day/night doubleheader against the Indians. The left-hander will fill a long/middle relief role for Minnesota. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:52 pm
  • Nats transfer Trea Turner to 60-day DL
    Nationals transferred SS Trea Turner from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: This is nothing more than a paperwork move to clear a 40-man roster spot for outfielder Alejandro De Aza. Turner took on-field batting practice Tuesday for the first time since fracturing his right wrist in late June. He won't be ready for activation for at least another couple of weeks.

  • Buster Posey getting day off Wednesday
    Buster Posey is getting the day off Wednesday.

    Advice: Nick Hundley will start at catcher and bat sixth in the Giants' series finale at Marlins Park. Ryder Jones is at first base and batting seventh. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:40 am
  • Gallo hits ninth homer of month, 34th of year
    Joey Gallo hit his ninth homer of the month and 34th of the year Tuesday against the Tigers.

    Advice: He also walked and scored a second run. That run is notable; he'd been driven in just once in his previous 17 games. The Rangers have slowly moved him up in the lineup, but they still won't go any higher than fifth with him. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:52 pm

  • Madison Bumgarner gives up four runs in win
    Madison Bumgarner gave up four runs over six innings in a victory Tuesday against the Marlins.

    Advice: Bumgarner got some rare run support tonight, as the Giants scored more than three runs for just the third time in his 11 starts this year. He's now 3-5 with a 2.99 ERA. He allowed a total of two runs in his previous two wins. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:09 pm
  • Trea Turner (wrist) takes live BP on Tuesday
    Trea Turner took on-field batting practice Tuesday for the first time since fracturing his right wrist in late June.

    Advice: Turner has already been fielding, throwing, and running, so hitting was his last rehab activity to check off the list. "Feels great," he said after Tuesday's workout. The shortstop should be cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment before the end of the week and he is on track to return to the Nationals' active roster in late August.

  • Gallo hits 33rd homer as Rangers top Tigers
    Joey Gallo slugged his 33rd home run of the year Monday in the Rangers' 6-2 defeat of the Tigers.

    Advice: It was a towering shot to center field in the bottom of the third inning off Tigers starter Michael Fulmer. Gallo entered the night in a bit of an offensive rut and he's batting just .207 with a .322 OBP in 107 total games this season, but the young slugger is currently on pace for 46 home runs and 86 RBI.

  • Joey Gallo strikes out twice in hit-less game
    Joey Gallo went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: The bottom five batters in the Rangers lineup on Saturday went just 1-for-15, with Gallo taking up four hit-less at-bats among them. He has now struck out 143 times in 326 at-bats, which works out to a strikeout in just shy of 44% of his at-bats on the year. When he does connect, though, look out. Gallo has socked 32 homers and driven in 61 runs this season and boasts a .552 slugging percentage. Also a .206 batting average. Rotoworld.com Aug 13, 3:19 pm

  • Posey, Pence, Span out for early game
    Buster Posey is out of the Giants' lineup for the first half of Sunday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

    Advice: Hunter Pence and Denard Span will also rest up to face Nats ace Max Scherzer in the nightcap. Nick Hundley is starting at catcher and batting fifth Sunday afternoon versus A.J. Cole. Rotoworld.com Aug 13, 8:16 am
