  • Cory Spangenberg has two-hit game
    Cory Spangenberg went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday's 4-2 loss against the Athletics.

    Advice: Spangenberg was the only Padres player to bring his hitting shoes to Petco Park, posting the only multi-hit game for the home side. All eight San Diego starting batters struck out at least once in the game, including one by Spangenberg. Despite the two-hit game he is still batting just .232 overall. However, he is enjoying his best month of the season, hitting .320 (16-for-50) to raise his average from .182 since flipping the calendar from May. Rotoworld.com 12 minutes ago
     
  • Paul Blackburn posts no-decision on road
    Paul Blackburn allowed two earned runs, four hits and two walks with four strikeouts over five innings in a no-decision Tuesday in San Diego.

    Advice: Blackburn was much better than his last time out, but he still recorded just 11 first-pitch strikes to the 21 batters he faced. He is tentatively scheduled to work next Sunday on the road against the White Sox, but he remains an extremely shaky fantasy option despite the seemingly favorable matchup.

  • Ian Kinsler reaches double digits in homers
    Ian Kinsler went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs scored in Tuesday's 5-4 victory against Arizona.

    Advice: Kinsler is limping along with a .225 average and just 20 RBI across 240 at-bats, but he has helped out with 10 homers. Seven of those long balls have come in the month of June. He still has a lot of work to do in the batting average department, but it's nice that the power is starting to come around. Rotoworld.com 54 minutes ago
  • Felix Pena wild in home no-decision
    Felix Pena allowed just one earned run, two hits and three walks with six strikeouts over four innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Pena limited the damage despite throwing just 48 of his 74 pitches for strikes while registering two wild pitches and a hit batsman. He might continue to rack up starts while Garrett Richards (hamstring) and Nick Tropeano (shoulder) are on the shelf, but Pena is still not a recommended fantasy option until he starts to go deeper into games and exhibits a little more control. If he continues to start his next scheduled outing would be Monday in Kansas City. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:17 pm
  • Jon Jay collects two more hits in road loss
    Jon Jay finished 2-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and a strikeout in Tuesday's 5-4 road loss against the Angels.

    Advice: Jay was hitless over his first 12 at-bats across four games after coming over from the Royals on June 6. It might have taken him a few games to get acclimated to his new surroundings, but now he is good to go. Jay is 15-for-34 (.441) with a double, a home run and six RBI while coming across to score 10 runs over the past eight outings. The buy-low window is still slightly open but will slam shut if he continues at this rate. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:09 pm
     
  • Power surge continues for Paul Goldschmidt
    Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a pair of walks in Tuesday's 5-4 road loss against the Angels.

    Advice: Goldschmidt enjoyed his brief stay in Anaheim, and probably wishes it was longer. He belted two homers and four RBI in the short interleague road series, giving him a season-high nine home runs and 20 RBI in 18 games in the month of June. After hitting just .144 in the month of May he is rolling to the tune of a .423 (30-for-71) average in June. He's back, and it's further evidence why you never bench a player of his caliber when healthy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:05 pm
  • Nolan Arenado smokes his 14th homer
    Nolan Arenado finished 3-for-5 with a double, a two-run home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Tuesday's 10-8 victory against the Mets.

    Advice: Arenado is starting to heat up again, posting three multi-hit games across his past five appearances. He is 7-for-21 (.333) with four doubles, two homers and eight RBI with six runs scored during the impressive span. Arenado opened the month with just two extra-base hits and three RBI in his first 12 games, but he is making up for lost time lately. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:42 pm
     
  • Ian Desmond continues to trend upward
    Ian Desmond went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two RBI in Tuesday's 10-8 victory against the Mets.

    Advice: Desmond entered the month of June with a dismal .196 batting average, but he is working on that area. He is 16-for-58 (.276) with six home runs and 14 RBI in 17 games in June to raise his average to .214. Desmond still has a ways to go before fantasy owners are 100 percent totally confident with his average, but his power production makes the low average sting a little less.

  • Bochy: Dyson to be primary fill-in at closer
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday night that Sam Dyson will serve as the team's primary closer for now.

    Advice: Hunter Strickland broke his right (pitching) hand when he punched a door out of frustration following a blown save Monday against the Marlins and is expected to miss the next 6-8 weeks. Dyson earned the first save in Strickland's absence on Tuesday versus Miami, inducing a game-ending double play from Brian Anderson after Will Smith issued a walk to Yadiel Rivera and struck out Derek Dietrich to begin the top of the ninth inning. Dyson holds an impressive 2.45 ERA and 0.97 WHIP in 33 innings this season. Mark Melancon and Tony Watson also make for good stashes in mixed fantasy leagues in case Dyson can't keep it going. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:29 pm
     
  • Two more RBI for Asdrubal Cabrera
    Asdrubal Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a walk and two RBI in Tuesday's 10-8 loss at Colorado.

    Advice: Cabrera is slashing .275/.316/.476, and he has racked up three consecutive multi-hit contests after an ugly 1-for-20 (.050) skid. Despite the recent cold spell he has been the second-most effective hitter wearing blue and orange behind Brandon Nimmo. He has racked up 29 extra-base hits, including 12 homers, and those numbers will make him attractive leading up to the non-waiver trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:24 pm
     
  • Jason Vargas hammered at Coors Field
    Jason Vargas allowed seven earned runs, nine hits and no walks with no strikeouts over 2 1/3 innings in a loss Tuesday in Colorado.

    Advice: Vargas threw just 30 of his 52 pitches for strikes, including just seven first-pitch strikes to the 16 batters he faced, and he hit a batter while serving up three homers. All three of the blasts came in a disastrous third inning. His ERA has been north of 7.39 for the entire season, and it currently sits at 8.60. There is absolutely no reason for fantasy owners to look his way until he pieces together a few quality starts. He hasn't lasted longer than five innings in nine outings this season, so he has a long way to go to respectability. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:16 pm
  • Pedroia (knee) not close to baseball activity
    Dustin Pedroia (knee) is not close to beginning baseball activities.

    Advice: Pedroia was placed back on the disabled list on May 30, five days after returning from an offseason cartilage restoration procedure on his left knee. "It’s major surgery. He didn’t know what to expect," Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Tuesday. "So we are where we are now. We’re hoping that, yeah, he’ll be back. When? We don’t know. I still believe that he’s going to contribute this season and he’s going to help us to win." Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:01 pm

  • Chris Young removed with hamstring injury
    Chris Young was removed from Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks due to a hamstring injury.

    Advice: If it's diagnosed as a strain, he will probably be placed on the 10-day disabled list. Young was 1-for-3 before getting replaced in the Angels' lineup by Luis Valbuena. The veteran outfielder is batting just .184 this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:57 pm

  • Garrett Cooper (wrist) moving rehab to AAA
    Garrett Cooper (wrist) will move his minor league rehab assignment to Triple-A New Orleans on Wednesday.

    Advice: Cooper just played back-to-back games at High-A Jupiter, going 2-for-3 with a walk. He's expected to alternate between first base, left field, and right field when he returns to the Marlins' active roster, possibly before the end of this month. The 27-year-old has been on the disabled list since April 2 due to a partial tear of the tendon sheath in his right wrist. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:03 pm
    60-Day DL
     
  • Prado (hamstring) to return before the ASB
    Martin Prado (hamstring) is expected to return to the Marlins before the All-Star break.

    Advice: Prado, who's been out since May 26 with a left hamstring strain, is hitting, fielding, and running, and could begin a minor league rehab assignment within the next week. "Martin has been a surprise that he's doing this well this fast," manager Don Mattingly said Tuesday. "I'll say it like that. He's doing really well." Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:00 pm
    10-Day DL
     
  • Goldschmidt homers again to help top Angels
    Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-4 with three strikeouts, but hit a two-run homer to help the Diamondbacks to a 7-4 victory over the Angels on Monday.

    Advice: Goldschmidt also drew his 40th walk of the season. The homer was a two-run shot off of Jaime Barria, and it gives the first baseman 15 on the campaign. After a terrible start to the year, the walk and homer have his OPS up to .895 on the season. You can't take back the struggles, but you can appreciate just how good the perennial MVP candidate has been to get his numbers back to this level. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:37 pm
  • Felix Pen to start for Angels on Tuesday
    Angels' manager Mike Scioscia announced that Felix Pena will start on Tuesday.

    Advice: The Angels are forced to really lean on their rotation depth with Nick Tropeano and Garrett Richards on the shelf. Pena is not a recommended streaming option. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:19 pm
  • Asdrubal Cabrera belts his 12th homer
    Asdrubal Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in Sunday's road win against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: The month of June has been a nightmare for Cabrera, as he entered the day 5-for-55 (.091) with just one double, a home run and two RBI across his past 15 outings since May 29. As a result his average has dropped from a robust .315 to .270. Hopefully Sunday's multi-hit game and homer will spur him on to a hot streak. Of course, the team returns home this week and he is hitting just .248 with 14 RBI and 29 strikeouts at Citi Field this season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:01 pm
     
  • Chris Young belts homer in road loss
    Chris Young went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Sunday's 11-inning loss in Oakland.

    Advice: Young hit a rocket in the third inning off of Daniel Mengden, but that was his only output of the afternoon. He is up to five homers, but he is still slashing a dismal .181/.278/.383. Young has a lot of work to do in the average department before he'll be useful to fantasy owners again. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:56 pm
    Day-to-Day
     
  • Average slowing rising for Ian Desmond
    Ian Desmond went 2-for-5 with an RBI in Sunday's series finale in Texas.

    Advice: Desmond certainly enjoyed his stay in Arlington, going 6-for-13 with two homers, three runs scored and three RBI in the three-game interleague set to raise his average above the Mendoza line from .195 to .209. He still has a ways to go in the average department before pleasing his fantasy owners, but his average is at the highest it has been since April 12 when he was hitting .213. The upward ascension is nice, and at least he has been providing some nice power along the way. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:09 pm

  • Young swats three-run homer vs Athletics
    Chris Young went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run during Saturday's loss to the Athletics.

    Advice: He found a Sean Manaea pitch to his liking in the fifth inning and yanked it over the wall with Albert Pujols and Martin Maldonado along for the ride. The blast gave his team a 3-1 lead but that didn't last long. Young is serving as a part-time outfielder in his first season with the Angels and has not been very good. He has a wimpy .180/.282/.360 slash line with four homers and 10 RBI in 89 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:53 pm
    Day-to-Day
     
  • Desmond has two-homer night vs. Rangers
    Ian Desmond went 3-for-5 with a pair of solo homers in Friday’s comeback win over the Rangers.

    Advice: Desmond got the Rockies started in what turned out to be a six-run second inning and didn’t stop there, as he went deep again in the fifth inning. It was the fifth multi-homer game of his career and his second this season. The 32-year-old has been inconsistent at the plate, resulting in a lowly .203 batting average and a .269 on-base percentage, but he’s still provided useful counting stats for fantasy owners with 14 homers, 39 RBI, seven steals, and 34 runs scored over 67 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:51 pm
    5:40 pm vs NYM
     
  • Arenado homers, has three hits vs. Rangers
    Nolan Arenado finished 3-for-4 with a solo homer, two doubles, one walk, three RBI, and three runs scored Friday against the Rangers.

    Advice: Arenado knocked in two runs with a double in the Rockies’ six-run second inning and took Brandon Mann deep in the ninth for a solo shot. The 27-year-old was actually hitless over his last four games (14 at-bats) coming into Friday’s action, so this was a good way to bust out. The three-time All-Star is batting .312/.406/.557 with 13 homers and 40 RBI over 63 games this season. He’s under his usual pace at the moment, but hitting in Coors Field could change that rather quickly. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:50 pm
     
  • Jay has three hits in win over Mets
    Jon Jay went 3-for-5 with two runs scored and a run batted in on Friday in a win over the Mets.

    Advice: One of Jay's hits was a triple, his first with the Diamondbacks. This makes four-straight multiple-hit games for Jay since the trade, and he's batting .345 since coming over from the Royals. He was good with Kansas City, and while this is a small sample size, he's been even better with Arizona. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:08 pm
     
  • Three hits for Goldschmidt in win over Mets
    Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-5 with a homer in a 7-3 victory over the Mets on Friday.

    Advice: The ridiculous June continues for Goldschmidt. The homer gives the first baseman 16 on the season, and his OPS for the month is now up to a ridiculous 1.462. The slow start was frustrating, but it was only a matter of time until Goldschmidt started playing at a high-caliber level again. It's fair to say he's doing that and then some right now. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:03 pm
  • Angels recall Felix Pena from Triple-A
    Angels recalled RHP Felix Pena from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Pena, 28, has appeared in two games for the Halos already this season, posting a 10.13 ERA and 1.88 WHIP in 2 2/3 innings. He'll provide a fresh bullpen arm in the middle innings. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:56 pm
  • Goldschmidt homer helps Dbacks down Mets
    Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-4 with a homer and three strikeouts in a win over the Mets on Thursday.

    Advice: Goldschmidt socked a solo blast off of Jason Vargas to give the Diamondbacks a 2-1 lead in the third inning, and it gives him 13 homers on the season. Remember when were concerned about his 2018 campaign? That was funny. He still doesn't have Goldschmidt-esque numbers, but it's tough to complain too much about a .368 on-base percentage and .508 slugging percentage over 67 games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:24 pm
  • Vargas allows three over five in loss
    Jason Vargas allowed three runs over five innings in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Thursday.

    Advice: Vargas was able to strike out five Diamondback hitters, but he also gave up five hits and two walks - with two of the hits being homers. It's one of his better outings as a Met, but that's not saying a heck of a lot. He still carries a 7.39 ERA on the season with an unhealthy WHIP of 1.70. Vargas will start again on Tuesday in Colorado, and there's no way he should be in your pitching lineup for that one. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:21 pm
  • Sam Dyson locks down first save of the season
    Sam Dyson locked down his first save of the 2018 season on Thursday, getting the final out in the 16th inning against the Marlins.

    Advice: Ty Blach did most of the heavy lifting for the bullpen, firing 6 2/3 innings of shutout baseball, though he got into trouble by putting two men on in scoring position with two outs in the 16th. That's when Dyson was summoned to get Bryan Holaday, who get got to fly out weakly to right field. Dyson has been very effective out of the Giants' bullpen this season, posting a 2.64 ERA and 1.04 WHIP across 30 2/3 innings. He isn't anywhere close to seeing regular save chances though, which leaves his fantasy value to leagues that count holds. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:54 pm
     
  • Nolan Arenado getting the day off Thursday
    Nolan Arenado is getting the day off Thursday.

    Advice: Ryan McMahon will start at third base and bat seventh versus Phillies right-hander Vince Velasquez. This would appear to be a routine breather for Arenado, who holds a .305/.399/.532 batting line with 12 home runs and 37 RBI in 62 games this season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:15 am
     
  • Paul Blackburn torched by the champs
    Paul Blackburn was hammered for eight earned runs, eight hits and two walks with no strikeouts in just 1 1/3 innings in a loss Wednesday against the Astros.

    Advice: Blackburn faced 14 batters and threw first-pitch strikes to just six of them. He ended up throwing just 24 of his 47 pitches for strikes as his ERA ballooned to 11.05. After posting a quality start and a win in his season debut last time out, he was awful in this one. He is tentatively scheduled to start Tuesday in San Diego in what should be a favorable matchup, but after this one he is a risky streaming option. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:12 pm
  • Vargas will start for Mets on Thursday
    Jason Vargas will start for the Mets on Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Vargas had his start on Tuesday skipped, with the Mets instead choosing to take advantage of off-days and using Zack Wheeler and Jacob deGrom instead. On the year, Vargas has an ugly ERA of 7.71 and WHIP of 1.747 over seven starts and 30 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:06 pm
  • Desmond smacks two-run homer vs Phillies
    Ian Desmond went 1-for-4 and belted a two-run home run in a win over the Phillies on Wednesday.

    Advice: His bomb put the cherry on a five-run, fifth-inning outburst against starter Nick Pivetta. Desmond has a dismal .197 batting average but makes up for that with 12 home runs and 37 RBI. He's salvaged some extra value by stealing seven bases. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:42 pm
    5:40 pm vs NYM
     
  • Young has three hits in loss to Mariners
    Chris Young went 3-for-4 with a homer and a triple in a loss to the Mariners on Wednesday.

    Advice: Young's blast was the third of the season for Young, and it came off of Chasen Bradford to give the Angels a brief 6-4 lead. The veteran outfielder has not enjoyed much success with Los Angeles in 2018, as the three hits raise his average to just .183 over 82 at-bats on the year. There's very little fantasy value in his game at this point in his career. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:55 pm
    Day-to-Day
     
  • Jay plates two runs in loss to Pittsburgh
    Jon Jay went 2-for-3 with a walk and two singles Wednesday in the Diamondbacks’ loss to the Pirates.

    Advice: He legged out an infield single in the first and later scored on a two-run homer by David Peralta (with an assist from Austin Meadows). Jay drew a walk in the second, then plated two runs with an RBI single off Pirates closer Felipe Vazquez in the ninth inning. Jay began his D’Backs tenure by going hitless in his first 12 at-bats but has bounced back in a big way over his last two games, delivering five hits, six RBI and four runs scored during that span. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:27 pm
     
  • Asdrubal Cabrera out of lineup Wednesday
    Asdrubal Cabrera is not in the Mets' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon against the Braves.

    Advice: Cabrera suffered a minor hamstring injury in Sunday's series finale against the Yankees and will sit out this matinee game after going 0-for-4 with a strikeout in his return to action Tuesday night. Luis Guillorme is starting at second base and batting eighth Wednesday versus Braves right-hander Mike Soroka. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:05 am
     
  • Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) goes 0-for-4
    Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout Tuesday night against the Braves.

    Advice: Cabrera made an early exit from Sunday's series finale against the Yankees with a left hamstring issue, but he got treatment during Monday's off day and didn't have to miss a game. The 32-year-old infielder owns a decent .807 OPS with 11 home runs and 36 RBI through 241 at-bats this season for the Mets. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:45 am
     
  • Paul Goldschmidt collects two more hits
    Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored in Tuesday's 13-8 victory against the Pirates.

    Advice: Goldschmidt has been absolutely on fire during the month of June, going 18-for-30 (.600) with six doubles, a triple, four homers and 11 RBI across the past seven outings to raise his average from .210 to .258 just since June 4. It has been a rough season for Goldschmidt and his fantasy owners, especially after an awful month of May with a .144 batting average, but he is making up for lost time in a hurry. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:42 pm
  • Jon Jay sets table nicely in Tuesday's win
    Jon Jay went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run and three runs scored in Tuesday's 13-8 win against Pittsburgh.

    Advice: It was Jay's first home run since coming over from the Kansas City Royals on June 6, and the hits were also his first in four games with his new team. Hopefully this will get Jay feeling a little more comfortable in his new surroundings and he can finally get going for the Diamondbacks. He should continue to see regular at-bats as the leadoff hitter with other options banged up at the moment. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:27 pm
     
  • Pedroia (knee) still not cleared for workouts
    Dustin Pedroia (knee) still has not resumed baseball activities.

    Advice: Pedroia landed back on the disabled list less than a week after making his season debut, and there is no timetable for his return to action at this point. Eduardo Nunez will continue to serve as Boston's primary second baseman. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:29 pm
    10-Day DL

  • Asdrubal Cabrera will be in lineup Tuesday
    Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) is "ready to go" and will be in the lineup Tuesday against the Braves.

    Advice: Cabrera had to leave Sunday's game against the Yankees due to a tight left hamstring and appeared to be in a lot of discomfort, but his exam in New York on Monday apparently didn't show anything troublesome. Still, he's hobbled right now and remains a possibility for the disabled list if he aggravates the injury. That's likely why the Mets are keeping Jose Reyes around despite whispers that the club is pushing him toward retirement. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:17 am
     
  • Mets think Cabrera (hammy) will avoid DL
    Mets manager Mickey Callaway expects Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) to avoid a stint on the disabled list.

    Advice: Cabrera appeared badly hobbled before leaving Sunday's game against the Yankees, but Callaway downplayed the situation after the game. "He felt like he could've kept on going," said Callaway. "But he didn't want it to get worse." Despite Callaway's optimism, no decision has been made. Cabrera stayed behind in New York on Monday in order to be reevaluated. There was a report over the weekend that the Mets are pushing Jose Reyes toward retirement, but he could stick around a bit longer if Cabrera needs to miss some time. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:17 am
     
  • Mets skipping Vargas' next start
    The Mets are skipping Jason Vargas’ next start.

    Advice: Vargas was lined up to start Tuesday against the Braves, but the Mets elected to take advantage of scheduled off-days. Zack Wheeler and Jacob deGrom will pitch in the series instead. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:09 am
  • Cabrera day-to-day with tight left hamstring
    Asdrubal Cabrera was removed from Sunday's contest with a tight left hamstring.

    Advice: Cabrera sustained the injury while running to first base during Sunday's game against the Yankees. He's considered day-to-day. Jose Reyes came on for him on Sunday and could see additional run if Cabrera is forced to miss another game or two. Rotoworld.com Jun 10, 6:35 pm
     
  • Asdrubal Cabrera leaves with apparent injury
    Asdrubal Cabrera was forced to leave Sunday night's game against the Yankees with an apparent leg injury.

    Advice: Cabrera grabbed at his left hamstring while running to first base during his first at-bat. He remained in the game for another few innings before getting replaced by Jose Reyes in the fourth. Look for the Mets to provide an update on his status shortly. Rotoworld.com Jun 10, 6:20 pm
     
  • Ian Desmond drives in pair of runs
    Ian Desmond went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI and a stolen base Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Desmond continues to kill fantasy owners with a dismal .195 batting average, and this was his first multi-hit game in nine June outings. However, he is still useful to fantasy owners with seven RBI across the past seven outings. His BABIP has been terrible this season, but it's hard to imagine a breakout isn't coming soon playing half of his games in the rarefied air. Rotoworld.com Jun 10, 5:30 pm
    5:40 pm vs NYM
     
  • Paul Goldschmidt picks up two more XBH
    Paul Goldschmidt finished 2-for-4 with a double, a triple, a walk, two runs scored and two RBI in Sunday's 8-3 win at Colorado.

    Advice: Goldschmidt has been scuffling along, but a trip to Coors Field has been the elixir he needed to cure hit hitting ills. He wrapped up the set 8-for-13 with two doubles, a triple, four homers and nine RBI, and he actually has five straight games with two or more hits dating back to the series in San Francisco. He has raised his average from .208 to .254 just since June 3, showing why you never bench a player of his caliber under any circumstances. Rotoworld.com Jun 10, 5:11 pm
  • Jon Jay still hitless as a Diamondback
    Jon Jay was hitless in four at-bats with three strikeouts and a walk Sunday in Colorado.

    Advice: Jay made his debut with the team on Friday night, and it appeared to be a favorable spot at Coors Field. However, he ended up hitless in 12 at-bats with two runs scored, two walks and eight strikeouts in the three-game set. The team is banged up, so Jay has a chance to shine at the top of the team's lineup, but for now he is a risky fantasy proposition. Rotoworld.com Jun 10, 5:04 pm
     
  • Goldschmidt homers twice in second straight
    Paul Goldschmidt homered twice, driving in four, to help lead the Diamondbacks to a 12-7 win over the Rockies on Saturday.

    Advice: Goldschmidt finished 3-for-4 with three runs scored, which, somewhat incredibly, is the fourth game in a row that he's had three or more hits. It was also the second consecutive game that he's homered twice, suddenly giving him 12 homers on the year. Reports of his death were greatly exaggerated, and the 30-year-old is now hitting a respectable .250/.360/.496 through 62 games. Rotoworld.com Jun 9, 9:47 pm
