  • Bradley makes another scoreless appearance
    Archie Bradley turned in another scoreless appearance Monday night against the White Sox.

    Advice: Bradley relieved Diamondbacks starter Zack Greinke with two outs in the top of the ninth inning and induced a groundout from Avisail Garcia to seal Arizona's 5-1 victory. The former top prospect has been excellent in a dynamic relief role for the Diamondbacks this season, with a 1.35 ERA, 0.85 WHIP, and 27/5 K/BB ratio over 13 appearances covering 20 innings.

  • Greinke fans 12, works into ninth vs. ChiSox
    Zack Greinke held the White Sox to one run over 8 2/3 innings Monday in the Diamondbacks' 5-1 win.

    Advice: Greinke nearly had a complete game, but manager Torey Lovullo lifted the right-hander after Jose Abreu doubled with two outs in the top of the ninth. Greinke was brilliant, yielding just four hits and striking out 12 batters against just one walk. He's now 6-2 on the year with a 2.82 ERA and he leads all National League pitchers in strikeouts with 78. A road start against the Brewers is next. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:28 pm
  • Miguel Gonzalez allows five runs in loss
    Miguel Gonzalez surrendered five runs -- four earned -- over five-plus innings Monday as the White Sox fell to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Daniel Descalso tagged Gonzalez for a three-run homer in the bottom of the fourth inning and Paul Goldschmidt added a solo shot in the bottom of the sixth. Gonzalez is now 3-5 with a 4.55 ERA and 1.48 WHIP through nine starts this season. He has a weak 33/20 K/BB ratio in 55 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:22 pm
  • Goldschmidt slugs 11th home run on Monday
    Paul Goldschmidt finished 2-for-4 with a home run in the Diamondbacks' defeat of the White Sox on Monday.

    Advice: Goldschmidt singled and scored on Daniel Descalso's three-run homer in the bottom of the fourth inning before popping Miguel Gonzalez for a solo shot in the bottom of the sixth. The star first baseman is batting .315/.448/.580 with 11 home runs, 35 RBI, 11 stolen bases, and 38 runs scored in 46 games this season for Arizona. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:22 pm
  • Melky Cabrera goes 0-for-4 in loss Monday
    Melky Cabrera went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Monday as the White Sox lost to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: The 32-year-old outfielder is now batting just .234/.285/.310 in 40 games this season for Chicago. Melky batted .296/.345/.455 in 151 games last season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • Descalso slugs three-run homer in victory
    Daniel Descalso hit a three-run homer in the Diamondbacks' win over the White Sox on Monday.

    Advice: Descalso opened the game's scoring with his three-run blast off White Sox starter Miguel Gonzalez in the bottom of the fourth inning. He also drew a walk in the victory but is still batting just .194/.333/.388 over 37 games this year. The utilityman carries no fantasy relevance. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:21 pm

  • Devenski earns win Monday versus Tigers
    Chris Devenski earned a win Monday with 2 2/3 innings of no-hit ball against the Tigers.

    Advice: Devenski relieved spot starter Brad Peacock in the top of the fifth inning and retired all seven batters he faced on just 26 pitches to keep the Astros' shutout alive. The 26-year-old right-hander struck out two batters and now boasts an outstanding 46/7 K/BB ratio in 27 innings this season, along with a 2.67 ERA and 0.74 WHIP. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Cameron Maybin homers, reaches four times
    Cameron Maybin went 2-for-3 with a homer, two walks and a steal to lead the Angels past the Rays 3-2 on Monday.

    Advice: Maybin is 10-for-11 in steals this year. For that reason, he has mixed-league value as long as he continues to play regularly and hit somewhere near the top of the order for the Angels. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:46 pm
  • Scott Feldman strikes out nine in win
    Scott Feldman pitched six innings and allowed one run Monday in a defeat of the Indians.

    Advice: Feldman struck out nine, which, believe it or not, is actually three off his career high (he fanned 12 in a complete-game victory over the Padres in 2013). Still, this was his high game in two years; he hadn't fanned as many as seven since 2015. Feldman is 3-4 with a 3.99 ERA. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:30 pm
  • Jason Vargas gives up three runs in loss
    Jason Vargas yielded three runs in six innings Monday in a loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Vargas fared better in Yankee Stadium than he did five days ago in a home start against the Yankees, but homer count for the season did double from two to four, as both Brett Gardner and Didi Gregorius took him deep. More homers are on the way, probably this weekend when he pitches in Cleveland. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:00 pm
  • Alexi Amarista goes 3-for-4 in win
    Alexi Amarista finished 3-for-4 in Monday's rout of the Phillies.

    Advice: Everything went wrong for the Rockies this spring, but they've had pretty great fortune since Opening Day. That's particularly apparent in Amarista's .975 OPS. He came in at .600, .544 and .567 for the Padres the previous three years. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:46 pm
  • Tigers option Anibal Sanchez to minors
    Tigers optioned RHP Anibal Sanchez to Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: Sanchez had to agree to the move given his big league tenure, and it was actually his idea, as he wants to be stretched out to start again. The veteran right-hander has posted a 9.00 ERA and 2.05 WHIP over 11 relief appearances this season, although he did strike out 22 over 21 innings. He could get another shot to start with the Tigers if Matt Boyd's struggles continue. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:15 pm

  • Sanchez (foot) experiences setback
    Hector Sanchez (foot) has experienced a setback during his minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Sanchez, who went down with a foot contusion earlier this month, began a rehab assignment on Friday and went 2-for-9 with two walks over the weekend. No word on the severity of the setback or when he'll be able to return to action. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:01 pm
  • Four hit day for Olson
    Athletics prospect Matt Olson picked up four hits on Sunday for Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Two of those hits went for extra bases, including his 10th homer of the season. A 2012 first-round pick, Olson has seen his stock decline in the past few years, but he's bounced back nicely in 2017. He's going to strike out a ton, but he might draw enough walks and hit enough bombs to compensate. Keep an eye on Olson going forward, he might be a potential steal. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:17 am

  • 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.

  • 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 Sunday, 10:56 am

  • Melky Cabrera drives in pair of runs in win
    Melky Cabrera finished 2-for-6 with two runs scored and two RBI in Saturday's 16-1 victory in Seattle.

    Advice: The switch-hitting veteran has hit safely in seven of the past eight games while driving in nine runs over his past 10 outings. Cabrera remains a helpful fantasy option in most AL-only and deeper mixed formats despite a mediocre .238 overall average. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:03 am
  • Cameron Maybin excels at top of lineup
    Cameron Maybin finished 1-for-3 with a pair of walks and an RBI in Saturday's game at N.Y. Mets.

    Advice: Maybin has done well at the top of manager Mike Scioscia's lineup lately. He is 9-for-16 with four runs scored, three RBI and four walks while posting just one strikeout over the past four outings. Maybin has always had plenty of talent, but he has had trouble staying healthy. As long as he is on the field he is a solid option in AL-only fantasy play and most deeper mixed formats.

  • Alexi Amarista leads the way in rout of Reds
    Alexi Amarista went 3-for-5 with a homer and four RBI on Friday, leading the Rockies in a 12-6 rout of the Reds.

    Advice: His three-run blast off of Lisalverto Bonilla broke the game open in the sixth inning, and he chipped in an RBI single later to close out the eight-run inning. He has done a nice job in limited action this season, slashing .341/.356/.568 with a pair of homers and 10 RBI. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:55 pm
  • 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.

  • Hector Sanchez (foot) set for rehab games
    Hector Sanchez (foot) has been cleared to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: He'll remain with El-Paso through the weekend before likely returning to the Padres' active roster early next week. Assuming no setbacks. Sanchez has been on the disabled list since May 6 because of a right foot contusion. It's possible San Diego will opt to keep Luis Torrens as the backup to starting catcher Austin Hedges.

  • Feldman coughs up seven runs in 2 2/3 frames
    Scott Feldman was charged with seven runs -- five earned -- in just 2 2/3 innings while taking a loss to the Cubs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He gave up more runs than hits in the game. He allowed five hits and three walks and also hit a batter. He struck out four. Most of the damage came in the second inning when the Cubs hung five runs on the scoreboard. The Reds' defense made some miscues that gave the Cubs extra chances and they took advantage of them. Feldman falls to 2-4 with a 4.29 ERA through nine starts. He will try to put this clunker behind him as he takes on the Indians and Phillies in a two-start week coming up. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:40 pm
  • Jason Vargas lit up by Yankees
    Jason Vargas was tagged for six runs in four innings by the Yankees on Wednesday.

    Advice: Baseball's best offense to date put a licking on its ERA leader. Vargas gave up more earned runs tonight than he did in his first seven starts combined (five), and his ERA jumped from 1.01 to 2.03. Vargas will get the Yankees again next time out, that one at Yankee Stadium. Mixed leaguers shouldn't gamble on a bounce-back performance. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:11 pm
  • Cameron Maybin goes 5-for-6
    Cameron Maybin went 5-for-6 with three doubles and two RBI from the leadoff spot Tuesday against the White Sox.

    Advice: The last double, a popup just over the shortstop's head that the left fielder fell down on, was particularly cheap, but Maybin was due for some luck after entering the night with a .180 average. He's 9-for-9 in steals this year, so he's worth a try in mixed leagues now that he's going to be leading off in Yunel Escobar's place. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:20 pm
  • Greinke whiffs eight but allows four runs
    Zack Greinke struck out eight but allowed four runs over 6 2/3 frames in Tuesday’s 5-4 win over the Mets.

    Advice: Greinke stayed in the game after being hit in the foot with a Neil Walker comebacker to lead off the second inning, but it could have affected him given that three of the next four batters reached, which included a bases-loaded walk to the struggling Curtis Granderson. Granderson then hit a solo shot in the fifth and Rene Rivera smacked a two-run homer in the seventh. This was Greinke’s worst start on paper since mid-April, but it was hardly a poor effort. He’ll get the White Sox and Brewers next week. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:49 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

  • Hector Sanchez (foot) catches 'pen session
    Hector Sanchez (foot) caught a bullpen session Monday.

    Advice: Sanchez will also attempt to go through a full workout. He appears to be close to returning from his bruised foot. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:14 pm
  • Paul Goldschmidt rocks two homers in defeat
    Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI in Sunday's 6-4, 10-inning loss to the Pirates.

    Advice: Goldschmidt tormented Robbie Ray with a two-run homer in the first inning and a solo bomb in the fifth. He is now up to 10 homers and 32 RBI for the campaign as a whole. In addition, the All-Star first baseman boasts a beautiful .314/.450/.584 triple-slash across 137 at-bats. Six of his 10 home runs this season have come in his last 10 games. Rotoworld.com May 14, 5:29 pm
  • Cameron Maybin steals three bases vs. Tigers
    Cameron Maybin went 0-for-1 with three walks and three steals in Sunday's win over the Tigers.

    Advice: Maybin stole two bases off Justin Verlander and one off Francisco Rodriguez. He is up to nine for the season. A need for speed is just about the only the veteran outfielder has going for him thus far, as he is slashing just .185/.307/.250 over the course of 108 at-bats. Rotoworld.com May 14, 3:58 pm
  • Melky Cabrera plates two in comeback victory
    Melky Cabrera delivered a pinch-hit, two-run single as part of an eight-run uprising in the eighth inning of a comeback victory over the Padres.

    Advice: Cabrera's two-run single gave the White Sox a 4-3 lead. For the most part, he has struggled at the plate this season, slashing just .234/.287/.315 with two homers and 16 RBI. Hopefully this game-winning knock is just when he needs to get back on track. Rotoworld.com May 14, 2:52 pm
  • Matz (elbow) pitches in extended spring game
    Steven Matz (elbow) threw two innings Saturday in an extended spring training game.

    Advice: He threw about 30 pitches. Metz is still working his way back from a strained flexor tendon but the Mets are optimistic he'll be ready next month. Rotoworld.com May 13, 1:59 pm

  • Scott Feldman solid for seven
    Scott Feldman allowed two runs over seven innings Friday in a no-decision against the Giants.

    Advice: Feldman is getting some strong defensive support and has been a little lucky in the home run department on is way to posting a 3.59 ERA in his first eight starts. This is his ceiling, but the Reds will certainly take it. Rotoworld.com May 12, 11:45 pm
  • Gonzalez gives up five runs in loss
    Miguel Gonzalez was tagged for five runs over five innings in a loss to the Padres on Friday.

    Advice: Gonzalez had some rare struggles with his control, matching a season-high with four walks while throwing first-pitch strikes to just 15 out of the 28 batters he faced. He gave up eight hits — including a pair of home runs — in the loss. His ERA has jumped from 2.00 to 3.83 over his last three starts. He just doesn’t miss enough bats to have much in the way of fantasy appeal. Rotoworld.com May 12, 9:52 pm
