  • Joc Pederson launches go-ahead solo homer
    Joc Pederson went 2-for-2 with a go-ahead solo home run in Thursday's win over the Mets.

    Advice: Pederson came on as a pinch-hitter to lead off the seventh inning and made immediate impact. And we mean immediate. Pederson jumped on Paul Sewald's first pitch of the frame for a monster solo shot, blasting it an estimated 433 feet to center to snap a 3-3 tie. The homer was Pederson's fifth of the season and boosted his RBI total to 17. While the outfielder is still hitting just .226/.355/.401 overall, he has shown signs of consistency of late, having picked up hits in eight of his last nine games. He has six extra-base hits in that space. Yesterday, 10:57 pm
  • Curtis Granderson socks solo homer in loss
    Curtis Granderson went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Granderson led off the game with a solo home run off Hyun-Jin Ryu. The homer was his ninth of the season. Overall, the veteran outfielder is hitting .225/.315/.437 in 69 games played. He has gone yard in back-to-back contests. Yesterday, 10:49 pm
  • Markakis' homer, four-hit night propel Braves
    Nick Markakis went 4-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored to help the Braves hold on for a 12-11 win over the Giants on Thursday.

    Advice: Markakis took Giants starter Matt Cain deep in the first inning for a two-run blast, just his third of the season. It kicked off the scoring in a game that would see 23 runs scored on 31 hits. Markakis himself picked up three more singles along the way, raising his line to .296/.374/.394 on the year. The 33-year-old has 41 RBI and 37 runs scored in 72 games as the Braves' primary right fielder. Yesterday, 10:43 pm
  • Posey cranks three XBH in loss to Braves
    Buster Posey was an extra-base hit machine Thursday, finishing 3-for-5 with two doubles, a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in a loss to the Braves.

    Advice: Posey has always had a penchant for hitting left-handed pitching and feasted on Braves starter Jaime Garcia in this one, hitting a solo homer in the second and smacking two doubles off the southpaw before Garcia could be relieved. The homer was Posey's 10th of the season, the sixth straight year the backstop has reached double-digits in dingers. Quietly, the 30-year-old is having a remarkable offensive year this season, batting .344/.427/.537 through 63 games. Yesterday, 10:37 pm
  • Adams' first homer is big one in win over SF
    Lane Adams hit a three-run home run, the first homer of his career, in Thursday's win over the Giants.

    Advice: What appeared to be insurance runs in the fifth inning turned out to be an important jack as the Braves needed every one of their 12 runs to hold on for the win. Adams was never really a power hitter in the minors but did run into 73 in his nine seasons in the minors, so there could be some more power there now that he's got the first one out of the way. Even if he does, the 27-year-old is a situational journeyman who will stay that way on a team full of better offensive options. Yesterday, 10:32 pm
  • Panik has three RBI, three runs versus Braves
    Joe Panik went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and three runs scored in a loss to the Braves on Thursday.

    Advice: The homer was his fifth of the year, three of which have come since June 8. That's a theme with the second baseman -- after a strong April and an abysmal May, Panik is now hitting .371 in June with the three homers, nine RBI and nine runs scored. The hot stretch has his line up to a much more palatable .275/.338/.414 overall. Yesterday, 10:26 pm
  • Ben Gamel hits two-run double in win over DET
    Ben Gamel went 1-for-4 with a two-run double in Thursday's win over the Tigers.

    Advice: Gamel got the Mariners on the board with a two-run double off Daniel Norris in the second inning. That double kept alive a hitting streak which now stands at 14 games. Beyond that hitting streak, Gamel has picked up knocks in 23 of his last 24 contests. He is slashing .352/.411/.487 with three homers and 24 RBI in 52 games played for the season as a whole. Yesterday, 10:17 pm
  • Miguel Cabrera clubs two-run homer in defeat
    Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: After Robinson Cano cracked a grand slam to give the Mariners a 9-3 lead through seven innings, the Tigers at least tried to make a game of it. Cabrera pulled them to within four with his two-run homer in the eighth and they would score one more of the frame to draw to within a manageable 9-6 deficit. However, they would draw no closer. Cabrera has now gone deep in three of his last eight games. On the macro level, he is hitting to a .271/.370/.450 triple-slash with eight homers and 34 RBI across 218 at-bats. Yesterday, 10:17 pm
  • Ian Kinsler launches solo homer vs. Mariners
    Ian Kinsler went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, two total RBI and a steal in Thursday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Kinsler gave Mariners rookie starter Andrew Moore his first sting of the major league home run ball, cracking a solo shot off the right-hander in the third inning. The veteran second baseman has now homered in three consecutive games and has hit safely in nine of his last 10. In that 10-game space, seven of his 11 hits have gone for extra bases. Overall, Kinsler is hitting .254/.343/.420 with eight homers, 19 RBI and six steals in 57 games. A hamstring injury cost him about two weeks earlier this season, hence the slightly depressed number of games played. Yesterday, 10:14 pm
  • Cain serves up three homers in loss to Braves
    Matt Cain allowed seven runs on 10 hits -- including three home runs -- over four innings in Thursday's loss to the Braves.

    Advice: Thursday was the sixth time in his last 10 starts that Cain has allowed nine or more hits, and he's now given up 12 homers in 15 starts overall. On May 15, Cain was 3-1 with a 4.04 ERA; through Thursday, the right-hander is 3-7 with a 5.54 ERA. This is simply a case of time catching up to the 32-year-old. The Giants are still paying him $21 million this season, though, and with few hopes for postseason play the team doesn't need to find a better option if one isn't readily available. The Rockies are the next team with a chance to feed on Cain when the two sides meet up Tuesday. Yesterday, 10:14 pm
  • Daniel Norris struggles in loss to Mariners
    Daniel Norris yielded five runs on five hits over six innings in Thursday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Norris surrendered three runs in the second inning and two more in the third, the latter runs coming on a two-run homer by Robinson Cano. He ended his evening having struck out five and walked three. Norris has been serviceable at best for the season as a whole and will carry a 4.66 ERA and 1.58 WHIP into a home start against the Royals next time he takes to the mound. Yesterday, 10:09 pm
  • Maybin leads way with homer, steal vs. Yanks
    Cameron Maybin hit a leadoff homer, stole a base and scored three runs as the Angels doubled up the Yankees 10-5 on Thursday.

    Advice: Maybin had just the one hit, his sixth homer of the year off Yankees starter Luis Severino to open the contest, but he also walked twice like a good leadoff man is wont to do. Also like a good leadoff man, the 30-year-old now has 46 runs scored on the year, ninth-most in the American League. His 22 stolen bases are best in the AL. It's just been an all-around good year for Maybin, who's hitting .277/.387/.442 after Thursday. Yesterday, 10:06 pm
  • Escobar turns in another multi-hit game
    Yunel Escobar went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Yankees on Thursday.

    Advice: The multi-hit game was the third in his last four contests, with two doubles and a triple in that time. He's also scored five runs in his last five games. In total, Escobar is hitting .276/.328/.409 as the team's primary third baseman. Yesterday, 9:55 pm
  • Kemp leaves early with tight left hamstring
    Matt Kemp left Thursday's game against the Giants due to a tight left hamstring.

    Advice: Kemp was lifted after hitting a single in the fifth inning. He has dealt with hamstring problems at several other points this season. The Braves are labeling him day-to-day for the time being, but a stay on the disabled list is always in play with a finicky issue like the hamstring. Kemp will be reevaluated on Friday. Yesterday, 9:54 pm
    4:35 pm vs Mil
  • Kemp leaves early with undisclosed injury
    Matt Kemp left Thursday's game against the Giants with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: Danny Santana pinch-ran for Kemp after his fifth-inning single. Kemp has battled hamstring issues off and on all season and looked gimpy chasing down a fly ball early in Thursday night's game. He was replaced in left field by Lane Adams, who ended up hitting a three-run homer off Bryan Morris as part of an eight-run fifth inning. Until the Braves provide an update, consider Kemp day-to-day. Yesterday, 9:11 pm
    4:35 pm vs Mil
  • Smith hits eighth homer in loss to Indians
    Seth Smith hit his eighth home run of the season in Thursday's loss to the Indians.

    Advice: It looked like it might be the Orioles' night after Smith led off the bottom of the first inning with a solo shot off Indians starter Mike Clevinger, but that was the last time the O's would lead in the game. Smith finished 1-for-4 with the homer, his eighth of the season. In his first season in Baltimore, the 34-year-old is hitting a productive .272/.347/.473 while batting primarily leadoff for the Birds. Yesterday, 9:04 pm
  • Kemp swats walk-off, two-run bomb vs. SF
    Matt Kemp hit a game-ending two-run homer to beat the Giants 5-3 in 11 innings on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was 0-for-4 with three strikeouts when he got a fifth chance in the bottom of the 11th inning of a tie game. He lifted a ball the opposite way that just barely scraped over the right field wall for the walk-off. Kemp is no longer the MVP-caliber 30/30 threat he was a few years ago but he is having a good fantasy season. He is rocking a .320 batting average with 12 home runs, 30 runs and 35 RBI. He has yet to steal a base successfully and only had one last year. Wednesday, 11:15 pm
    4:35 pm vs Mil
  • Granderson drives in both Mets run Wednesday
    Curtis Granderson paced the Mets with three hits in Wednesday’s loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Granderson greeted the Dodgers by crushing a solo blast off left-hander Rich Hill in the game’s first at-bat. He also singled in the third before capping his night with an RBI double in the ninth inning to finish a triple shy of the cycle. Wednesday was only Granderson’s second three-hit game of 2017. For the season he’s batting just .220 with eight homers, 20 RBI and three steals. Wednesday, 11:07 pm
  • Ian Kinsler finds seats at Safeco Field
    Ian Kinsler finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run, walk and two runs scored in Tuesday's game in Seattle.

    Advice: Kinsler has been back to his normal hitting self since being activated from the 10-day disabled list two weeks ago. He has hit safely in 10 of his past 12 outings while hitting .300 (15-for-50) with four doubles, two homers and four RBI. Wednesday, 1:34 am
  • Ben Gamel's outstanding June continues
    Ben Gamel went 3-for-5 with a double, solo home run, two runs scored and an RBI in Tuesday's win against Detroit.

    Advice: Gamel has hit safely in 12 straight games, and he is hitting a robust .416 (32-for-77) to raise his average from .307 to .351. The homer was his first since May 9, and the extra-base hit was his first over the past six outings. Wednesday, 1:21 am
  • Cameron Maybin homers, doubles in win
    Cameron Maybin went 3-for-5 with a homer and a double as the Angels topped the Yankees 8-3 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Maybin has five homers, 14 doubles and 21 steals in 201 at-bats for the Angels. He was just as effective of a hitter for the Tigers last year (thanks to a .315 average), but he totaled just four homers, 13 doubles and 15 steals in 349 at-bats then. He's already done enough that this qualifies as his second best season from a fantasy perspective, and it could top his 40-steal 2011 campaign with the Padres. Tuesday, 8:14 pm
  • Ian Kinsler reaches base three times
    Ian Kinsler finished 1-for-3 with a double, two walks and an RBI in Monday's loss in Seattle.

    Advice: Kinsler's modest seven-game hitting streak was snapped on Sunday against the Rays, but he didn't waste any time getting back on track. The most promising stat of the night was his two walks, as he entered the game with just three free passes over his past 23 outings. Monday, 11:50 pm
  • Collins says Granderson will be fourth OF
    Mets manager Terry Collins said Monday that Curtis Granderson will be the team's fourth outfielder when everyone is healthy.

    Advice: Granderson has batted .270/.380/.516 with six home runs since May 1, but his awful April is weighing him down and Jay Bruce has heated back up in June. With the Mets looking unlikely to contend, it wouldn't be a surprise to see them trade impending free agents Bruce and/or Lucas Duda, so Granderson might have an everyday role again before long. Of course, he's an impending free agent himself and could conceivably be dealt. Monday, 4:33 pm
  • Seth Smith homers, scores three times
    Seth Smith went 3-for-5 with a solo homer and three runs scored Sunday in the Orioles' 8-5 victory over the visiting Cardinals.

    Advice: Smith just missed a handful of games dude to a stiff back, but the 34-year-old outfielder looked plenty loose on Sunday afternoon. He homered off Lance Lynn in the bottom of the first, singled to lead off the bottom of the third, and then doubled in the bottom of the sixth. Smith is now slashing .271/.352/.471 with seven home runs, 15 RBI, and 26 runs scored in 48 games this season. Sunday, 2:09 pm
  • Matt Kemp (hamstring) back in Braves' lineup
    Matt Kemp (hamstring) is back in the Braves' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's his first start since he tweaked his left hamstring on Wednesday. Kemp is in left field and batting cleanup against Jose Urena and the Marlins. Sunday, 7:31 am
    4:35 pm vs Mil
  • Cameron Maybin thriving in leadoff spot
    Cameron Maybin finished Saturday's game against the Royals with a double, solo home run and two runs scored over four at-bats.

    Advice: Maybin has hit safely in eight straight games. The veteran is hitting .388 (31-for-80) with three home runs since being moved to the leadoff spot by manager Mike Scioscia. Saturday, 10:11 pm
  • Miggy swats solo home run in loss to Rays
    Miguel Cabrera punched a solo home run during Saturday's loss to the Rays.

    Advice: He took Chris Archer over the wall in the sixth inning. It was his only hit of the night in four chances. Cabrera is not having one of his classic MVP-caliber seasons to this point as he has battled some nagging injuries including a bad back currently. He has been heating up of late though and has his line up to .280/.378/.460 with seven homers and 32 RBI. Don't be surprised if an epic hot streak kicks off sooner rather than later. Saturday, 5:25 pm
  • Panik goes 3-for-5 vs Rockies Saturday
    Joe Panik went 3-for-5 in Saturday's lopsided loss to the Rockies at Coors Field.

    Advice: All three hits were singles and none of them helped put any runs on the scoreboard. Panik has been a steady presence near the top of the Giants' batting order all season even though his stats don't make fantasy owners drool. He is batting .274/.341/.412 with four homers, 25 runs, 20 RBI and two steals in 255 plate appearances. Saturday, 3:40 pm
  • Cain gives up two runs in loss to Rockies
    Matt Cain gave up two runs -- one earned -- in five innings and was charged with a loss to the Rockies on Saturday.

    Advice: He surrendered nine hits and two walks while notching three strikeouts. He allowed a ton of contact but was able to keep the ball in the yard. Cain owns a weak 46/32 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 74 innings this season. He falls to 3-6 with a 4.99 ERA and woeful 1.69 WHIP after 14 starts. Saturday, 3:35 pm
  • Matt Kemp (hamstring) remains out of lineup
    Matt Kemp (hamstring) remains out of the Braves' starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Kemp did indicate that he's feeling better though and will be available off of the bench on Saturday. Look for him to return to the Braves' lineup on Sunday. Saturday, 10:20 am
    4:35 pm vs Mil
  • Buster Posey (ankle) returns to lineup
    Buster Posey (ankle) returned to the Giants' starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: He's getting the call at first base, rather than catcher, in this one to take a bit of the stress off of his injured ankle. The Giants' will need his bat too, as four of their regulars are sitting this one out. Saturday, 10:03 am
  • Buster Posey (ankle) appears as pinch hitter
    Buster Posey (ankle) appeared as a pinch hitter during Friday's game against the Rockies, drawing a walk in his lone plate appearance.

    Advice: The hard-hitting backstop left Thursday's game after tweaking his left ankle while crushing a home run. The injury is minor though and won't require a trip to the disabled list. He's expected to return to the starting lineup on Saturday. Saturday, 5:30 am
  • Joe Panik totals five bases in Friday's loss
    Joe Panik finished 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles, a solo home run, three runs scored and two RBI in Friday's 10-8 loss in Colorado.

    Advice: Panik has been on fire lately, going 10-for-20 (.500) with three doubles, two homers and four RBI across the past five games. Overall for the month of June he is hitting .385 (15-for-39) with five doubles, two homers and six RBI to raise his average from .242 to .267. Saturday, 12:14 am
  • Joc Pederson hits third homer
    Joc Pederson went 2-for-3 with a homer, a double and a walk versus the Reds on Friday.

    Advice: That's nice to see. Pederson was struggling before suffering a concussion and landing on the disabled list, and it was hard to tell what to expect from him upon his return this week. So, it's encouraging that he has four hits, three of them for extra bases, is four games. Friday, 9:19 pm
  • Daniel Norris strikes out eight Rays in win
    Daniel Norris yielded three runs in six innings and struck out eight in a win over the Rays on Friday.

    Advice: Norris hasn't been great, but he has been fairly consistent despite having some rather weak defense behind him this year. He's yet to pitch more than 6 1/3 innings in any starts, but he's also yet to give up more than five runs in an outing. He's 4-4 with a 4.42 ERA, and the Tigers are 7-6 when he pitches. Friday, 8:51 pm
  • Buster Posey (ankle) plans to return Saturday
    Buster Posey (ankle) said he could be available off the bench Friday night against the Rockies.

    Advice: Posey left Thursday's loss after tweaking his left ankle while hitting a two-run homer in the top of the seventh inning, but it's nothing serious. "I'm really happy with the way I feel," the star catcher said Friday, adding that he plans to return to the Giants' starting lineup Saturday. Friday, 2:41 pm
  • Seth Smith (back) returns to Orioles' lineup
    Seth Smith (back) is starting in right field and batting leadoff for the Orioles on Friday night against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Smith had been sidelined since Monday because of a stiff back. The veteran outfielder is slashing .264/.344/.444 with six home runs and 14 RBI in 45 games this season for Baltimore. Friday, 12:48 pm
  • Matt Kemp (hamstring) out Friday vs. Marlins
    Matt Kemp (hamstring) is not in the Braves' starting lineup Friday against the Marlins.

    Advice: Kemp made an early exit from Wednesday's series finale against the Nationals after experiencing left hamstring tightness. The veteran outfielder remains day-to-day. Friday, 12:20 pm
    4:35 pm vs Mil
  • Buster Posey says left ankle issue is minor
    Buster Posey (ankle) said late Thursday that he's optimistic he won't miss much time.

    Advice: Posey left Thursday's 10-9 loss to the Rockies after tweaking his left ankle while belting a two-run homer in the top of the seventh inning, but he told reporters after the game that he was already feeling much better. Giants trainers believe it was a scar-tissue breakup, which can sometimes be painful. This doesn't sound like a disabled list situation, though Posey may get multiple days off this weekend. Nick Hundley took over behind the plate Thursday in Colorado. Friday, 3:40 am
  • Yunel Escobar notches RBI single in loss
    Yunel Escobar went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Thursday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Escobar came up with an RBI single in the sixth inning to give the Angels their second run of the game. They wouldn't score again in the 7-2 defeat. For the season as a whole, he is now hitting .275/.330/.406 with five homers and 19 RBI in 207 at-bats. A strained hamstring cost him about three weeks of the season. Thursday, 10:29 pm
  • Cabrera walks off Rays with two-run homer
    Miguel Cabrera hit a walk-off, two-run homer to lead the Tigers to a 5-3 win over the Rays on Thursday.

    Advice: Cabrera took a Tommy Hunter pitch the other way, with his blast barely clearing the outfield wall for the walk-off winner. He also doubled and scored another run in the game, finishing 2-for-5. He's got multiple hits in each of his last four games, swatting four doubles and Thursday's homer in those four games. Overall, the 34-year-old is hitting .280/.378/.446 with six homers and 31 RBI, and he seems to be heating up with the late spring weather. Though he did admit after the game that he's been playing through a back injury. Thursday, 9:59 pm
  • Kinsler steals base, scores twice versus Rays
    Ian Kinsler was hit by a pitch, singled, stole a base and scored twice in Thursday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Kinsler manufactured a run in the first inning, getting hit by an Alex Cobb offering and stealing second base before motoring around to score on a Victor Martinez RBI single. The steal was his third in five tries this year. The 34-year-old has begun to pick it up at the plate in recent days, scoring at least one run in seven of his last eight games while raising his line to .250/.338/.367. Thursday, 9:48 pm
  • Miguel Cabrera playing through back injury
    Miguel Cabrera admitted after Thursday's game against the Rays that his back has been bothering him for "quite some time."

    Advice: Cabrera hasn't looked like himself this year and now we have a better idea why. In addition to his back woes, Miggy has also battled through oblique and groin injuries. For now, it looks like Cabrera will tough it out and continue to play hurt. He beat the Rays with a walk-off two-run homer on Thursday while tying Red Sox great Carl Yastrzemski for 37th on the all-time home run list. Even at far less than 100 percent, Cabrera is still better than most of the league. Thursday, 9:01 pm
  • Posey and Nunez both leave with injuries
    Buster Posey left Thursday's game against the Rockies with a sore ankle.

    Advice: Posey limped back to the clubhouse after drilling a two-run homer in the seventh inning. He never returned and was soon replaced by Nick Hundley behind the dish. Posey had an eventful night, committing two errors while going 3-for-4 at the plate. Eduardo Nunez got hurt in the same inning, leaving with hamstring tightness. Both players are considered day-to-day. Thursday, 8:27 pm
  • Ben Gamel goes 2-for-4 against Twins
    Ben Gamel delivered his fifth straight multihit game Thursday against the Twins.

    Advice: Impressive. The longest such streak for any player this year is six games, which has been done five times. Overall, Gamel has hit in 16 of his last 17 games, pushing his average back up to .345. He hasn't homered since May 9 and he has just one steal on the year, so he still hasn't been particularly useful for fantasy purposes. That doesn't figure to change as his average decline. Thursday, 1:44 pm
  • O's Seth Smith (stiff back) may need DL stint
    Seth Smith remains out of the Orioles' lineup Thursday because of a stiff back.

    Advice: If there's no improvement by the weekend, the O's might put Smith on the 10-day disabled list. The veteran outfielder hasn't played since Monday. "It’s more mid-back than lower back," manager Buck Showalter told reporters Thursday. "He’s had some just general lack of range-of-motion." Thursday, 9:44 am
  • Panik (thumb) goes 2-for-4 in return Wed.
    Joe Panik (thumb) went 2-for-4 in his return to the Giants' starting lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Panik missed nearly a full week with a sprained left thumb, but he managed to avoid the disabled list and should be fine moving forward. The second baseman is batting .259/.329/.382 in 59 games this season for San Francisco. Thursday, 5:38 am
  • Granderson goes 2-for-3 with a solo homer
    Curtis Granderson hit a solo home run and scored three times during a 9-4 victory over the Cubs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He swatted the tater off Cubs relief ace Carl Edwards Jr. in the eighth inning. He finished 2-for-3 with a walk and scored each time he reached base in the ballgame. Granderson has remained semi-productive despite his lowly .215 batting average. He has seven homers, 28 runs, 23 RBI and three stolen bases in 62 games. Wednesday, 8:01 pm
  • Miggy goes 2-for-4 vs Diamondbacks Wed.
    Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-4 against the Diamondbacks in Wednesday's loss.

    Advice: He stroked a single and a double but neither one factored into the scoring. The veteran superstar has yet to catch fire this season while battling a nagging oblique injury. He is batting .277/.377/.426 with five home runs and 29 RBI. Wednesday, 7:14 pm
  • Matt Kemp exits with left hamstring tightness
    Matt Kemp was lifted from Wednesday's win over the Nationals due to left hamstring tightness.

    Advice: Kemp came up hobbled after sliding into third base in the third inning of Wednesday's win. His exit appears to be mostly of a precautionary nature. He will have a natural off day on Thursday and could potentially play in Friday's road showdown with the Marlins assuming the tightness subsides. Wednesday, 4:53 pm
    4:35 pm vs Mil
  • Matt Kemp forced out with apparent leg injury
    Matt Kemp was lifted from Wednesday's game against the Nationals due to an apparent leg injury.

    Advice: Kemp grabbed for his left hamstring after sliding into third base in the top of the third inning. He was subsequently replaced in the field by Danny Santana in the bottom of the frame. The Braves should pass along an update as to the exact nature of his injury later on Wednesday. Wednesday, 2:15 pm
    4:35 pm vs Mil
  • Buster Posey raises average to .352
    Buster Posey collected a single, double and a run scored across three at-bats in Tuesday's loss against Kansas City.

    Advice: After a brief cold spell near the end of May, Posey is doing what he does best. He has collected 20 hits over his past 49 at-bats (.408) to improve his already solid .333 average back up to a robust .352. He continues to pile up the hits, collecting hits in 12 of his past 13 outings. Wednesday, 12:29 am
  • Panik (thumb) expected back on Wednesday
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Joe Panik (thumb) will return to the starting lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Panik hasn't appeared in a game since last Thursday due to a sprained left thumb, but he's made good progress on the side. Aaron Hill is at second base for the Giants on Tuesday night against the Royals. Tuesday, 4:47 pm
  • Panik (thumb) remains out Tuesday night
    Joe Panik (thumb) remains out of the Giants' starting lineup on Tuesday night.

    Advice: Panik had been aiming to return for Tuesday night's game against the Royals, but his sprained left thumb still isn't fully healed. Aaron Hill is starting at second base and batting seventh versus Royals left-hander Jason Vargas. Tuesday, 3:10 pm
  • Joc Pederson activated from disabled list
    Dodgers activated OF Joc Pederson from the 7-day concussion disabled list.

    Advice: Pederson's concussion issues are behind him and he hit a couple homers in three rehab games with Triple-A Oklahoma City. With Cody Bellinger moving back in to first base to cover for Adrian Gonzalez (back), Chris Taylor should slide over to left field and allow Pederson to re-take his spot in center. Tuesday, 12:02 pm
