  • Matz (elbow) could be promoted soon
    According to David Lennon of Newsday, the Mets are open to activating Steven Matz (elbow) after Tuesday's start with Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Matz, who is working his way back from a flexor strain, allowed one run on two hits and two walks over three innings in his first rehab start at High-A St. Lucie last Thursday. Ideally he would get at least two more starts in the minors, but the state of the Mets' rotation could have them move up the timeline. Either way, Matz should be stashed away in most fantasy leagues.

  • Dodgers considering using Eibner as pitcher
    The Dodgers are experimenting with using outfielder Brett Eibner as a pitcher.

    Advice: The Dodgers still plan to use Eibner primarily as an outfielder, but proving himself as a pitcher could help him justify a roster spot. He has thrown several bullpen sessions to build arm strength and work on his secondary pitches. "He’s got a great arm," said Dodgers pitching coach Rick Honeycutt. "We’ll start fine-tuning a little bit and see if there’s something there." Eibner, 28, played the outfield and pitched at the University of Arkansas from 2008-10. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:00 am
  • Phil Hughes (shoulder) to be placed on DL
    Phil Hughes will be placed on the 10-day disabled list with stiffness in his throwing shoulder.

    Advice: Hughes gave up five runs -- including three homers -- over just four innings in Sunday's loss to the Royals. He said after the game that he's feeling "a lot of the same symptoms I was experiencing last year" prior to surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, but more should be known after he's examined on Monday. Hughes has struggled with a 5.74 ERA over nine starts this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:54 am

  • Puig (back) strikes out as pinch-hitter
    Yasiel Puig (back) struck out as a pinch-hitter in Sunday's game against the Marlins.

    Advice: Puig was held out of the starting lineup for the second straight day due to back tightness, but it seems like he's moving in the right direction. Consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:30 am

  • Keone Kela slams door on Tigers in ninth
    Keone Kela slammed the door on the Tigers in the ninth inning on Sunday, retiring all three hitters he faced to preserve a three-run advantage.

    Advice: Closer Matt Bush was apparently unavailable after throwing 33 pitches on Friday night, so it was Kela who got the chance to work in the game's highest leverage situation. He was up to the task, striking out two in his perfect frame to secure his second career save. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:48 pm
  • Dee Gordon notches double in loss to Dodgers
    Dee Gordon went 2-for-4 with a double in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: The double was Gordon's sixth of the season. He also picked up a single, but struck out in his other two at-bats. The speedy second baseman has now turned in multi-hit performances in each of his last three games, but is hitting just .263/.319/.322 overall. While he does have 13 steals, at this juncture, base thefts are just about all he has going for him. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:22 pm
  • Crawford slugs third home run in loss Sun.
    Brandon Crawford drew a walk and hit a solo homer in the Giants' loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.

    Advice: Crawford took Miguel Socolovich deep over the right field wall in the top of the eighth inning, but the Giants were already down big at that point. The shortstop is batting .274/.306/.451 with three home runs and 13 RBI in 31 games this season for San Francisco. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:17 pm
  • Tony Watson tallies 10th save on Sunday
    Tony Watson tallied his 10th save of the year Sunday in the Pirates' 1-0 defeat of the Phillies.

    Advice: Watson picked up a strikeout in an easy 1-2-3 top of the ninth inning to keep the Bucs' combined shutout intact. The left-hander has a 2.75 ERA and 14/7 K/BB ratio in 19 2/3 innings this season as Pittsburgh's closer. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:11 pm
  • Phil Hughes coughs up three home runs in loss
    Phil Hughes surrendered three home runs and five total runs over four innings in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Hughes just could not keep the ball in the park in this one. Salvador Perez rocked a two-run home run off the veteran right-hander in the first inning and Jorge Bonifacio did likewise in the fourth inning. Brandon Moss then immediately followed up that Bonifacio homer with a solo shot of his own. Hughes struck out four and walked two on the afternoon. Through nine starts, he holds a rough 5.74 ERA and 1.51 WHIP. A home start against the Rays shows next on his schedule as he tries to put together some sort of positive momentum.

  • Orioles option Miguel Castro back to Double-A
    Orioles optioned RHP Miguel Castro to Double-A Bowie.

    Advice: The 22-year-old right-hander was only with the club for a couple of days as an extra bullpen arm. He'll continue to provide organizational bullpen depth in the minor leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:13 pm

    Advice: LeMahieu hit a go-ahead RBI single in the bottom of the third inning and a solo shot in the bottom of the fifth. The second baseman is batting .299/.371/.397 with two home runs and 16 RBI in 45 games this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:38 pm
  • Eric Thames leaves game with leg cramps
    Eric Thames was removed from Sunday's game against the Cubs due to cramping in his legs.

    Advice: Thames has been battling hamstring and calf injuries, which seems consistent with what was acting up here. It still doesn't sound as though he'll require a trip to the disabled list, but it's the type of nagging injury that could continue to crop up on occasion. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:29 pm

  • Osuna notches sixth save Sunday vs. O's
    Roberto Osuna notched his sixth save Sunday in the Blue Jays' defeat of the Orioles.

    Advice: Osuna gave up a couple of singles but no real damage in the bottom of the ninth inning to seal Toronto's 3-1 victory. Osuna is sitting on a 3.31 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, and 18/1 K/BB ratio through 16 1/3 frames in 2017. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:17 pm
  • Matz (elbow) to make two more rehab starts
    Steven Matz (elbow) is slated to make two more rehab starts.

    Advice: Matz surrendered two hits and one run over three innings last Thursday in his first rehab start for High-A St. Lucie. He threw 53 pitches in the outing, so the left-hander obviously needs to be stretched out a bit more. Working his way back from a flexor strain, Matz could rejoin the Mets' rotation by the first weekend of June. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:56 am

  • J.T. Riddle turns in huge night at the plate
    J.T. Riddle finished with three hits, including a home run, while driving in four runs in Saturday's game at L.A. Dodgers.

    Advice: It wasn't all great as Riddle was caught trying to steal home. The young shortstop from the University of Kentucky has hit safely in four straight outings and he has a pair of three-hit games over the past six games dating back to May 15. He continues to fill in rather admirably for Adeiny Hechavarria (oblique). Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:57 am

  • Mark Trumbo finishes with three RBI
    Mark Trumbo finished 3-for-4 with a two-run home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Saturday's win against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Trumbo has back-to-back three-hit games, and he has eight multi-hit outings in 18 starts in the month of May. He hit just .202 with two homers and 11 RBI in the month of April, but he has collected 26 hits over 76 at-bats (.342) with four homers and 11 RBI in May. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:47 pm
  • Welington Castillo continues to rake
    Welington Castillo finished 1-for-3 with a three-run home run and a walk in Saturday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Castillo is 10-for-18 (.556) with three home runs and 10 RBI in four games since returning from the 10-day disabled list. Obviously he hasn't experienced any ill effects from the right shoulder tendinitis which landed him on the shelf. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:37 pm
  • Watson pitches clean ninth for a save Sat.
    Tony Watson tossed a clean ninth inning to earn a save against the Phillies on Saturday.

    Advice: He was protecting a three-run lead while facing the bottom of the Phillies' lineup and he set them down in order. He carries a 2.89 ERA with 13 strikeouts in 18 2/3 innings. He has two wins, no losses, nine saves and one blown save. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:37 pm
  • Yasiel Puig (back) sitting against Marlins
    Yasiel Puig (back) is not in the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Marlins.

    Advice: He'll get the night off after exiting Friday's game with back tightness. Enrique Hernandez will replace Puig in right field and bat eighth against Marlins right-hander Dan Straily. Manager Dave Roberts said Puig is available off the bench so we could see him pinch-hit. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:36 pm
    Day-to-Day
     
  • Puig (back) hopes to avoid disabled list
    Yasiel Puig was removed from Friday's game against the Marlins due to tightness in his back.

    Advice: Puig said afterwards that he hopes to avoid the disabled list. He initially felt tightness in his back during batting practice and it progressed throughout the game. While the dynamic outfielder has his sights set on returning to the lineup on Saturday or Sunday, the Dodgers' may be best served holding him out for a game or two to err on the side of caution.

  • Welington Castillo clubs walkoff homer Friday
    Welington Castillo blasted a two-run walkoff home run in the 10th inning on Friday, powering the Orioles to a 5-3 victory over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Castillo was also instrumental in forcing extra innings, with a game-tying two-run blast off of Jays' starter Aaron Sanchez in the sixth inning. He finished the night 3-for-5 and plated four of his club's five runs. It's the fourth multi-homer game in the backstop's career. He's an impressive 9-for-15 (.600) with two homers and seven RBI since returning from the disabled list. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:31 pm
  • Mark Trumbo has three hits in win on Friday
    Mark Trumbo went 3-for-5 and scored three runs as the Orioles topped the Blue Jays in 10 innings on Friday.

    Advice: Trumbo singled and came around to score the game's first run in the first inning. He then rode home on a Welington Castillo home run in the sixth inning that tied the game. His two-out single in the 10th inning prolonged the inning, allowing for the heroics of Castillo's walk-off blast. With the three-hit attack, Trumbo is now slashing .253/.295/.380 with five bombs and 19 RBI. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:26 pm
  • Yasiel Puig leaves game with apparent injury
    Yasiel Puig was forced to leave Friday's game against the Marlins due to an apparent injury.

    Advice: Puig appeared to tweak something in his side while checking his swing as he drew a walk in the fourth inning. He remained in the game to run the bases for himself but was subbed out for a defensive replacement the following frame. Look for an update on his status from the Dodgers shortly.

  • Dodgers recall Brett Eibner from Triple-A
    Dodgers recalled OF Brett Eibner from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: The Dodgers needed a fresh bat on the bench with Justin Turner landing on the disabled list and Eibner fit the bill. He's 3-for-10 (.300) with one homer and two RBI in his limited action with the Dodgers this season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:03 pm
  • Eric Thames (illness) back in lineup Friday
    Eric Thames (illness) is back in the Brewers' lineup Friday.

  • Puig's two-run homer helps fuel win over MIA
    Yasiel Puig went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run and two walks in Thursday's 7-2 win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Puig teed off on an Edinson Vasquez offering with one out in the second inning, clubbing the ball an estimated 441 feet. The home run was his eighth of the season and it is well within play that Puig could top the career-best 19 home runs he socked as a rookie in 2013. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:50 pm

  • Eric Thames (strep throat) to start on Friday

  • Steven Matz goes three innings in rehab start
    Steven Matz (elbow) allowed two hits and one run over three innings Thursday in a rehab start for High-A St. Lucie.

    Advice: He added three strikeouts and two walks over the course of 53 pitches. Matz reportedly hit 95 mph on the radar gun, though his fastball was mostly sitting in the 93/94 mph range. It's a positive first step for Matz but he's still a few starts away from joining the Mets' rotation. The Mets desperately need him back with Noah Syndergaard out and Matt Harvey struggling.

  • Eric Thames (illness) returns as pinch-hitter
    Eric Thames (illness) flew out to center field in a pinch-hitting appearance Thursday in the Brewers’ win over the Padres.

    Advice: He pinch-hit for pitcher Zach Davies with two on and nobody out in the seventh inning. Thames didn’t start Thursday’s game due to strep throat but he should be back in there Friday at Wrigley Field.

    Eric Thames (strep throat) remains out of the Brewers' starting lineup on Thursday.

    Advice: Thames was able to take batting practice on Wednesday and reportedly hit several bombs, but he'll sit out of Thursday afternoon's series finale at Petco Park.

  • Castillo goes 3-for-4 with an RBI vs Tigers
    Welington Castillo went 3-for-4 and drove in a run in Wednesday's loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: All three hits were singles, one of which plated Mark Trumbo with a run in the fourth inning. Castillo just returned from a two-week stint on the disabled list with a sore shoulder. He has a healthy .350 batting average but has not contributed a lot in the counting stats. He has just one home run and nine RBI in 83 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:49 pm
  • Eric Thames (strep throat) out of lineup
    Eric Thames (strep throat) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres.

    Advice: Thames came down with a case of strep throat on Tuesday. He has also been dealing with minor soreness and tightness in his legs.

  • Orioles bring right-hander Castro up to bigs
    Orioles recalled RHP Miguel Castro from Double-A Bowie.

    Advice: The O's acquired Castro from the Rockies in early April. He has yet to pitch with his new team, but in 19 appearances with Colorado last season, the 22-year-old right-hander struggled to a 6.14 ERA. While Castro has a big arm, there is no fantasy intrigue here. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:54 pm

  • Gordon swipes 12th base in loss on Wed.
    Dee Gordon stole his 12th base of the season in Wednesday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Gordon reached on a forceout in the bottom of the fifth inning and swiped third base after making it to second on a balk. He officially went 0-for-3 at the plate in the afternoon loss to Houston, though the speedster also reached base on a hit-by-pitch in the bottom of the first. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:15 pm
  • Crawford's RBI single proves to be difference
    Brandon Crawford went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Tuesday's win over the Dodgers.

    Advice: Crawford hit an RBI single off reliever Luis Avilon in the sixth inning to snap a 1-1 tie. The Giants would go on to win by the 2-1 margin which Crawford provided them in the frame. A groin injury cost the shortstop two weeks earlier this season, but since returning on May 11, he has not missed a beat, having picked up six hits in 22 post-injury at-bats. Crawford has now driven in a run in three consecutive games and has 12 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:16 pm
  • Phil Hughes gives up five runs in loss
    Phil Hughes gave up five runs and eight hits in five innings Tuesday in a loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: Hughes struck out three tonight, putting him at his average for the season (26 Ks in eight starts). The improved Minnesota defense has allowed Hughes to keep the team in games, and the Twins have actually won six of his eight starts. Still, Hughes has a 5.23 ERA, and it'd be nice if the team could do better at the back of the rotation. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:41 pm

  • Osuna allows run on two hits versus Braves
    Roberto Osuna allowed a run on two hits in the Blue Jays' loss to the Braves on Tuesday.

    Advice: Joe Smith put two runners on in the top of the ninth with the Jays trailing 6-5 and manager John Gibbons turned to his closer to try to keep a comeback within reach. Osuna promptly gave up a two-run double to Matt Kemp and an RBI single to Nick Markakis as Atlanta pushed its lead to 9-5. The young right-hander now has a 3.52 ERA on the season and he hasn't earned a save in over a week for last-place Toronto. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:52 pm
  • Thames sitting Tuesday due to strep throat
    Eric Thames has strep throat.

    Advice: That's the primary reason for his absence from the Brewers' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Padres, not his recent leg soreness. Thames might also be held out Wednesday. Jesus Aguilar is filling in at first base at San Diego's Petco Park. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:45 pm

  • Orioles activate Welington Castillo from DL
    Orioles activated C Welington Castillo from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: Castillo wound up missing two weeks with tendinitis in his right shoulder. He went 2-for-7 on his three-game minor league rehab assignment with Double-A Bowie. Baltimore is currently carrying three catchers, but that will probably change soon. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:55 pm
  • Matz (elbow) begins rehab assignment Thursday
    Steven Matz (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Port St. Lucie on Thursday.

    Advice: Seth Lugo (elbow) will also pitch for St. Lucie in the same game. The two hurlers are on a similar timetable, with the Mets hoping they'll be an option by early June. Matz threw about 30 pitches in an extended spring training game over the weekend, so he should be good for 45-50 on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:14 pm

  • Brett Eibner optioned to Triple-A
    Dodgers optioned OF Brett Eibner to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Eibner homered in a start over the weekend, but his reward is a trip back to the minors. He's clearing out to make room for Brandon McCarthy. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:45 pm
  • Brandon Crawford hits two-run double in win
    Brandon Crawford went 1-for-3 with a two-run double in Sunday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Crawford came through with a two-run double off Barrett Astin in the second inning to boost the Giants to a 7-0 advantage. They would go on to cruise to an 8-3 win. Since returning from a groin injury on May 11, Crawford has hit a pair of doubles in four games played. Rotoworld.com May 14, 4:58 pm
  • Yasiel Puig comes up with solo home run
    Yasiel Puig went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: Puig knotted the score at 3-3 with his solo blast off Antonio Senzatela in the second inning, but the Rockies would pull back ahead with four runs over the next three innings. For the season as a whole, Puig is hitting .250/.316/.434 with seven homers, 20 RBI and four steals over the course of 136 at-bats. Sunday's two-hit showing was his fourth multi-hit effort in his last 10 games. Rotoworld.com May 14, 4:14 pm

  • J.T. Riddle goes 0-for-3 in Marlins' win
    J.T. Riddle finished 0-for-3 in the Marlins' win over the Braves on Sunday.

    Advice: Riddle is in line for regular playing time at shortstop with Adeiny Hechavarria nursing an oblique strain, but the 25-year-old is 2-for-21 at the plate this season and he hasn't tallied a hit since April 16. Rotoworld.com May 14, 12:54 pm

  • Dee Gordon moves back into leadoff spot
    Dee Gordon is back in the Marlins' leadoff spot for Sunday's game versus the Braves.

    Advice: Gordon was demoted to the No. 9 spot for four games, but he's back in the leadoff spot even though he had just three hits in 14 at-bats over that stretch. The Marlins also have A.J. Ellis catching as J.T. Realmuto gets a breather. Manager Don Mattingly's club has lost 14 of its last 17 games. Rotoworld.com May 14, 8:07 am
  • DJ LeMahieu coming alive at dish
    DJ LeMahieu finished 3-for-4 in Saturday's game against the Dodgers to raise his batting average to .283.

    Advice: LeMahieu is 16-for-47 (.340) over the past 11 games to raise his average 28 points just since May 2. Last season's National League batting champ is starting to pile up hits again, posting six games with two or more hits over the past 11 outings after managing just 10 multi-hit games in the entire opening month. Rotoworld.com May 13, 11:59 pm
  • Brett Eibner belts first homer of season
    Brett Eibner cracked his first homer of the season in three at-bats Saturday in Colorado.

    Advice: Eibner belted six homers in his rookie season of 2016, splitting time between the Royals and Athletics. He has a little bit of pop, but he hurts fantasy owners with a poor batting average. Rotoworld.com May 13, 11:44 pm
  • Tony Watson nails down eighth save
    Tony Watson allowed a solo home run to Arizona's Nick Ahmed on Saturday, but he settled down to secure his eighth save of the season.

    Advice: Ahmed has allowed an earned run in back-to-back outings, but he is certainly not skating on thin ice. He ranks fourth in the National League with eight saves and he has a sparkling 1.84 ERA and respectable 1.43 WHIP, making him one of the better fantasy closers. Rotoworld.com May 13, 8:42 pm
  • Yasiel Puig sitting out against Rockies
    Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Rockies.

    Advice: It will be Puig's second absence of the season. Brett Eibner will draw the start in right field and bat eighth against Rockies left-hander Tyler Anderson. Puig has had an up-and-down year so far, hitting .244 with six homers, 19 RBI and four steals. Rotoworld.com May 13, 2:25 pm

  • J.T. Riddle appears as defensive replacement
    J.T. Riddle (finger) appeared as a defensive replacement in Friday's loss to the Braves.

    Advice: Riddle injured his finger while taking infield practice on Wednesday. It's a good sign that he was able to appear in this one, though he was pinch-hit for the only time he came to the plate. Rotoworld.com May 13, 5:38 am

  • Matz (elbow) to appear in extended spring
    Steven Matz (elbow) will pitch in an extended spring training game on Saturday.

    Advice: It's unclear how many appearances he'll need in extended spring training before being sent out on a rehab assignment. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Friday that Matz could rejoin the Mets' rotation in early June if all goes well. He's working his way back from a strained flexor tendon.

  • Hughes can't get through five innings vs. Sox
    Phil Hughes lasted just 4 2/3 innings, allowing five runs (four earned) in a no-decision Thursday against the White Sox.

    Advice: Hughes was handed a six-run lead but he wasn't able to coast to the easy victory, letting the White Sox back in with three runs in the fourth and two more in the fifth. The right-hander gave up six hits and two walks before exiting. Hughes owns a 4.74 ERA and 1.42 WHIP through seven starts overall, and a date with the Rockies on Wednesday isn't promising for the future of those numbers. Rotoworld.com May 11, 9:12 pm
