    Neil Walker (hamstring) went 1-for-4 with a single and a strikeout Sunday in his second minor league rehab game with Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Walker went 2-for-7 during his brief rehab stint and appears on track to be activated when the Mets open a series in San Diego on Monday. The veteran second baseman has been sidelined since mid-June with a partial tear of his left hamstring. Rotoworld.com 17 minutes ago

  • Wilmer Difo launches solo homer in victory
    Wilmer Difo went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Difo finished off the game's scoring with his solo home run in the seventh inning. That shot made the score 6-2 and the Nationals would hang on without issue to the end of the game. In 136 at-bats this season, the 25-year-old infielder is hitting an uninspiring .257/.331/.338 with two homers and 11 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:49 pm
  • Wil Myers launches solo homer against Giants
    Wil Myers went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Giants.

    Advice: Myers took a Ty Blach offering for a 423-foot ride in the first inning. He has been in a groove at the plate of late, having cracked homers in three consecutive contests and four of his last six games. Overall, the 26-year-old first baseman is slashing .252/.333/.476 with 20 homers, 47 RBI and 10 steals. He is eight home runs shy of tying his career-best 28, set during his breakout 2016 season.

  • Jabari Blash hits two-run double in victory
    Jabari Blash went 1-for-3 with a two-run double in Sunday's win over the Giants.

    Advice: Blash burned Ty Blach for a two-run double in the fourth inning. The two-bagger was his fourth of the season. He has played well since being recalled from Triple-A on July 14 and has done enough to continue drawing regular at-bats moving forward. Over the course of 24 games played this season, the 28-year-old outfielder is slashing .242/.377/.452 with three homers and 11 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:27 pm
  • Ice and fire: David Freese socks solo shot
    David Freese went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: After the Pirates fell behind 5-1, Freese inched them closer with a solo homer off Kyle Freeland in the sixth inning. The veteran third baseman is hitting .251/.385/.372 with seven homers and 30 RBI in 77 games. While he has a little five-game hitting streak going, his offensive contributions have been limited on the whole. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:56 pm
  • Jose Iglesias blasts two-run homer in victory
    Jose Iglesias blasted a two-run homer as the Tigers topped the Twins in Minnesota on Sunday.

    Advice: His two-run shot gave the Tigers a 4-2 lead in the seventh inning. He later added an RBI single, finishing the afternoon 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and three RBI. The defensive whiz is hitting .264/.294/.363 with three homers and 31 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:43 pm
  • Red Sox to promote Devers to play third base
    Red Sox team president Dave Dombrowski announced Sunday that top prospect Rafael Devers will be recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket to play third base.

    Advice: Devers was just moved up to Triple-A on July 14 where he hit .355 with a pair of homers and four RBI in his eight games. The 20-year-old sensation should get a chance to hold the position for the remainder of the season and could be a worthwhile investment in mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:20 pm
  • Mariners sign Danny Espinosa to minors deal
    Mariners signed INF Danny Espinosa to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Espinosa was released by the Angels earlier in the week. He hit a horrifying .162/.237/.276 with six homers and 29 RBI in 228 at-bats with the Halos. At this point, he's nothing more than minor league infield depth for the Mariners. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:13 pm

  • X-rays come back negative for Chirinos
    The X-rays on the ankle of Robinson Chirinos came back negative on Sunday.

    Advice: The backstop was removed from Sunday's game against the Rays after a collision at home plate resulted in a sprained ankle. It's unclear how much time he stands to miss, but the fact that there's no structural damage is an encouraging sign. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:03 pm

  • Pete Kozma outrighted to Triple-A
    Rangers sent INF Pete Kozma outright to Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Kozma cleared waivers after being designated for assignment and has decided to remain in the organization rather than elect free agency. He'll represent utility depth. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:18 pm

  • Robinson Chirinos lifted with sprained ankle
    Robinson Chirinos was pulled from Sunday's game against the Rays after a collision at home plate resulted in a sprained left ankle.

    Advice: Rougned Odor's throw home in the bottom of the fourth inning took Chirinos into Adeiny Hechavarria and the catcher was knocked over (he did hang on to the ball). After initially staying in the game, Chirinos was pinch-hit for by Jonathan Lucroy in the top of the fifth. He'll undergo X-rays. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:58 am

  • Amed Rosario (illness) sent to hospital
    Mets shortstop prospect Amed Rosario has missed five straight games and was taken to the hospital Saturday in Memphis due to a stomach issue.

    Advice: He'll miss at least a sixth straight game Sunday. It sounds like Rosario is probably dealing with food poisoning, so it shouldn't be too much longer before he's ready to play. Obviously, it doesn't help his chances of being promoted in the next few days. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:14 am

  • Jarrod Dyson (toe) sitting out Sunday
    Jarrod Dyson (toe) is not in the Mariners' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Dyson suffered a hyperextended toe when he collided with the outfield wall Saturday. He's expected to miss a day or two of action. Guillermo Heredia is in center field. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:01 am

  • Pedro Severino recalled from Triple-A
    Nationals recalled C Pedro Severino from Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: He'll serve as a third catcher while Ryan Raburn is on the bereavement list. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:44 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. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:00 am

  • Jarrod Dyson leaves after crashing into wall
    Jarrod Dyson left Saturday's game against the Yankees after crashing into the center field wall.

    Advice: Dyson went hard into the wall while trying to reel in a fifth-inning triple hit by Garrett Cooper. He finished out the inning after being checked on by trainers but was later replaced by Guillermo Heredia. Dyson was hitless in two at-bats before exiting. The 32-year-old has hit a sluggish .236 this year but ranks second in the American League with 22 steals. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:20 pm

  • Presley goes 3-for-5 with a run and RBI Sat.
    Alex Presley went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored against the Twins on Saturday.

    Advice: He smoked a ground-rule double that plated a run in the eighth inning, then rode home on a Justin Upton longball. The veteran part-time outfielder has made the most of his limited opportunities this year. He has a .329 batting average with one homer and 10 RBI in 93 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:01 pm
  • Myers hits solo home run in loss to Giants
    Wil Myers cracked a solo home run and finished the day 1-for-5 in Saturday's extra-inning loss to the Giants.

    Advice: He went yard off starter Matt Moore to get the Padres on the board in the fourth inning. It was his 19th longball of the year. He hit 28 of them last year and will likely end up near that number again. The well-rounded, five-category producer is slashing .252/.332/.471 with 46 RBI, 51 runs scored and 10 stolen bases.

  • Pedro Severino to be called up from Syracuse
    According to Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post, Pedro Severino will be called up from Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday.

    Advice: He'll be taking the place of Ryan Raburn, who is slated to go on bereavement leave. The 24-year-old hasn't hit much this year, batting a mere .211 with four homers and 26 RBI over 161 at-bats for Syracuse. He'll give the Nationals some catching depth behind Matt Wieters and Jose Lobaton. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:27 pm
  • Green: Jabari Blash has earned more PT
    Padres manager Andy Green on Thursday indicated that Jabari Blash has earned a right to remain in the lineup.

    Advice: Blash is hitting .458/.517/.833 with two homers over seven games since his recall. "The Jabari I’m seeing right now is earning his right to be on the baseball field consistently," Green said. "I don’t mind watching guys compete for playing time. I’m actually excited by that prospect. With all the injuries we’ve had this year, that concept hasn’t really been able to be embraced at all." Blash has had a nice season at Triple-A El Paso with a .291/.407/.631 line and 18 homers. He's going to strike out a ton, but there might be enough power here for NL-only value. Jose Pirela and Carlos Asuaje figure to see their playing time cut the most as long as Blash is in there, and it's possible Hunter Renfroe could also see fewer starts. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:17 pm
  • Neil Walker (hamstring) expected back Monday
    Neil Walker (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled list Monday.

    Advice: Walker will begin a short rehab assignment with Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday. He'll return to his starting spot at second base, pushing Asdrubal Cabrera to third. Walker has been on the shelf since mid-June with a torn left hamstring. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:28 am

  • Angels officially release Danny Espinosa
    Angels released 2B Danny Espinosa.

    Advice: Espinosa cleared waivers after being designated for assignment on Sunday. The 30-year-old hasn't hit a lick this year, batting an ugly .162 with 91 strikeouts in 228 at-bats. He'll resurface at some point but will probably have to settle for a minor league deal. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:13 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. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:07 pm

  • Neil Walker (hamstring) set for rehab assign.
    Neil Walker (hamstring) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday.

    Advice: Walker has been on the shelf with a strained left hamstring since mid-June. He tested out the leg by running on Monday. Assuming he does not suffer a setback during the planned minor league rehab assignment, he could potentially return to action some time before the end of July. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:18 pm

  • Jabari Blash perfect at the dish in road loss
    Jabari Blash finished 3-for-3 with a walk, a run scored and an RBI in Tuesday's road loss against the Rockies.

    Advice: It wasn't all good for Blash, as he made his second error of the season on a line drive. The outfielder from the U.S. Virgin Islands has come alive in July, posting nine hits over 18 at-bats (.500) with two doubles, two homers and seven RBI while coming across to score five times. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:59 pm
  • Wil Myers strikes out four times
    Wil Myers went 0-for-5 and struck out four times against the Rockies at Coors Field on Monday.

    Advice: 24 hits and 15 runs at Coors tonight, yet Myers was a zero again. He's gone 12 straight games without driving in a run, and his OPS stands at .781, the lowest it's been since early April. He's also fanned 118 times in 89 games. Last year, he finished at 160 strikeouts in 157 games. It doesn't seem like a good sign. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:10 pm

  • Neil Walker (hamstring) does some running
    Neil Walker (hamstring) did some running Monday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's done so since he landed on the disabled list back in mid-June with a strained left hamstring. Walker doesn't appear to be too far off from a rehab assignment as long as he can avoid a setback. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:14 pm

  • Danny Espinosa designated for assignment
    Angels designated 2B Danny Espinosa for assignment.

    Advice: Espinosa has played his usual terrific defense this season, but it wasn't enough to make up for a hideous .162/.237/.276 batting line. The Angels appear poised to roll with Nick Franklin as their regular second baseman, with Cliff Pennington sprinkled in. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 9:33 am

  • Jabari Blash finds seats in Saturday's win
    Jabari Blash finished 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's game against the Giants.

    Advice: Blash too Madison Bumgarner deep in the fourth inning for only his second homer of the season. The young outfielder has back-to-back games with extra-base hits while posting three RBI since his recall from Triple-A El Paso. The power potential is there for Blash, but he needs to develop a better eye at the plate if he intends to stick around for a while. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 11:35 pm
  • Iglesias goes 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run
    Jose Iglesias went 3-for-4 with an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: He plated the game's second run with an RBI single in the second inning. He singled, stole second and scored in the sixth. Iglesias owns an empty .258 batting average with two homers, 34 runs scored and 25 RBI. The stolen base was his fifth of the season in seven tries. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 6:41 pm
  • Jabari Blash reaches three times
    Jabari Blash, called up earlier in the day, went 2-for-4 with a double and a walk against the Giants on Friday.

    Advice: He also had a nice at-bat with two outs and the go-ahead run on in the bottom of the ninth, but his opposite-field drive to right couldn't quite make it to the wall in Petco. It should still be enough to keep him in the lineup Saturday as Hunter Renfroe's replacement in right. Rotoworld.com Jul 14, 10:42 pm
  • Jabari Blash recalled from Triple-A
    Padres recalled OF Jabari Blash from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Blash has hit just .103/.316/.207 during his brief time in the majors. He could get a few starts while Hunter Renfroe (neck) is sidelined. Rotoworld.com Jul 14, 1:52 pm
  • Red Sox promote Rafael Devers to Triple-A
    Evan Drellich of CSNNE.com reports that the Red Sox have promoted third base prospect Rafael Devers to Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: He's taking the spot of Pablo Sandoval, who had been at Pawtucket rehabbing but was designated for assignment Friday. A consensus top-20 prospect, Devers batted .300/.369/.575 with 18 homers at Double-A Portland to earn the promotion. The Red Sox have an obvious need at third base, but they seem likely to acquire help outside the organization and give the 20-year-old Devers more seasoning in the minors.
