  • 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. Rotoworld.com 24 minutes ago
  • 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.

  • Pennington scores three times from 9 spot
    Cliff Pennington went 3-for-3 with a double and three runs scored in Thursday's win over the Yankees.

    Advice: Pennington got the start at second base and made the most of it, also walking in the game to reach in all four of his plate appearances. Thursday was the first game this year in which he's scored multiple runs in a game. Through 41 games, the 33-year-old is hitting .253/.333/.299 while playing three different infield spots for the Halos. Rotoworld.com 28 minutes ago

  • Severino, Yankees pen can't hold onto lead
    Luis Severino allowed six runs -- five earned -- on eight hits over six-plus innings in a loss to the Angels on Thursday.

    Advice: Severino actually entered the seventh inning with the lead, but a comedy of errors and an ineffective Yankees bullpen allowed the Angels to score four runs in the frame and saddle Severino with the loss. It's not as though he was otherwise stellar, but the final line actually looked a lot worse than it was. In 14 starts overall, the 23-year-old is now 5-3 with a 3.30 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 95/24 K/BB ratio. He'll look for a better result Tuesday at the White Sox. Rotoworld.com 32 minutes ago

  • Chavez chased after four against Yankees
    Jesse Chavez allowed five runs over four innings in a no-decision Thursday against the Yankees.

    Advice: Chavez gave up seven hits, including an Aaron Judge three-run homer, and walked two in the start. The Angels actually came back to win the game by a decent margin, but the 33-year-old couldn't stick around long enough to earn his sixth win. He's been up and down, but mostly down, through 16 appearances, including 15 starts, this year, posting a 5.15 ERA and 1.37 WHIP in 85 2/3 innings of work, but with the recent release of Doug Fister it at least seems like the Angels don't have many better options to replace Chavez in the rotation. An interleague date with the "crosstown" Dodgers awaits Tuesday. Rotoworld.com 39 minutes ago
  • 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. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:11 pm

  • Jackson's three RBI propel Indians past O's
    Austin Jackson went 3-for-5 with a triple, three RBI and a run scored in the Indians' 6-3 win over the Orioles on Thursday.

    Advice: Jackson swatted an RBI triple and scored a run in the second inning, and he tacked on a two-run single with the bases loaded in the third. The 30-year-old has come on strong in recent days, going 8-for-19 with two doubles, a triple and a homer in his last five games. He's still a situational player but he's being used well by the Tribe, hitting .301/.382/.516 in 34 games this year. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:10 pm
  • 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. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:04 pm

  • Ramirez walks, triples, scores twice in win
    Jose Ramirez had a walk, a triple and two runs scored in a win over the Orioles on Thursday.

    Advice: He extended his hitting streak to 10 games and incredibly, Thursday's was the first in which Ramirez had just one hit. He's a ridiculous 24-for-46 in that span with 10 doubles, two triples, three homers, seven RBI, 14 runs scored and a steal, to boot. The 24-year-old is following up his breakout 2016 campaign by hitting .321/.376/.560 in the encore. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:00 pm

  • Goldschmidt leads rout with 18th homer
    Paul Goldschmidt clobbered his 18th homer while providing four RBI Thursday in the Diamondbacks’ win over the Rockies.

    Advice: Goldschmidt was ruthless on Thursday, first giving Arizona the lead with an RBI single in the third inning before launching a three-run jack off Antonio Senzatela in the following frame. Goldschmidt has now overtaken teammate Jake Lamb for the major league lead with 64 RBI and ranks second behind Aaron Judge in OPS. He’s hit .427 over 68 at-bats this month.

  • Carlos Gomez homers twice in win
    Carlos Gomez went 3-for-5 with two homers and five RBI in leading the Rangers to an 11-4 win over the Blue Jays on Thursday.

    Advice: In a tear reminiscent of what J.D. Martinez did earlier this year, Gomez has five homers and 14 RBI in six games since coming off the disabled list. Before getting hurt, he had four homers and 13 RBI in 38 games. The Rangers might want to hit him higher in the order to capitalize on this. He opened the season as a leadoff man, but he's batting sixth right now. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:03 pm
  • Angels option Mike Morin to AAA level
    Angels optioned RHP Mike Morin to Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Morin only made one appearance during his short stay with the Angels and he allowed three runs on five hits over 1 2/3 innings in that outing. Huston Street has been activated from the disabled list in a corresponding 25-man roster move. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:28 pm

  • Fifth inning dooms Giolito
    White Sox prospect Lucas Giolito gave up three runs in five innings on Wednesday for Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Giolito was excellent in the first four innings, but struggled in the fifth to make his box score a bit deceiving. He struck out eight, and he allowed just four hits on the afternoon. The stuff has been much better in June, and despite the struggles in his last inning, this was another positive start. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:02 am

  • Upton stays hot with three RBI Wednesday
    Justin Upton drove in three of Detroit’s five runs in Wednesday night’s loss to Seattle.

    Advice: He was also caught stealing for the third time this season. Upton put the Tigers ahead 2-0 by singling home a run in the fourth and padded their lead with a two-run single in the sixth, though the Mariners eventually came back to steal a 7-5 win. The 29-year-old has been on a tear this month, batting .329 with five homers and 23 RBI since June 1. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:57 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. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:15 pm

  • Mark Reynolds tees off in loss to Arizona
    Mark Reynolds blasted his 18th homer of the year Wednesday in the Rockies’ 14-4 loss to Arizona.

    Advice: He put the Rockies ahead 1-0 (obviously that lead would prove to be short-lived) by bombing a tape-measure home run to deep center field off Taijuan Walker in the second inning. Reynolds has now taken Walker deep twice this year. He also led off the fourth with a double to right field but was stranded at second base. The 33-year-old has been a pleasant surprise for the Rockies, hitting .301 this year with 18 homers and 56 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:22 pm

  • Carlos Gomez not in lineup vs. Blue Jays
    Carlos Gomez is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Just a rest day for Gomez, who has been swinging a hot stick since being activated from the disabled list on June 16. He is 6-for-19 with three homers and nine RBI in his four games since returning to action. Delino DeShields will man center in his place and is hitting ninth. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:19 pm
  • Paul Goldschmidt launches homer No. 17
    Paul Goldschmidt belted a solo home run in three at-bats Tuesday at Colorado while coming across to score a pair of runs.

    Advice: Goldschmidt has homered in back-to-back games for the second time over his past seven contests, and he has amassed 19 RBI in the month of June so far. He collected 18 RBI in April and 20 in May, so his total in June is on pace to be a season best. Goldschmidt also carries a seven-game hitting streak into Wednesday's game against Jeff Hoffman and the Rockies. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:27 pm
  • Carlos Gomez powers Rangers past Blue Jays
    Carlos Gomez smashed a solo homer during a four-run first inning on Tuesday, powering the Rangers to a 6-1 victory over the visiting Blue Jays.

    Advice: Gomez has been on a tear since returning from the disabled list on Friday, with nine RBI in his first four games. On the season, he's slashing .255/.337/.472 with seven long balls and 22 RBI. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:55 pm
  • Angels recall Mike Morin from Salt Lake
    Angels recalled RHP Mike Morin from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Morin will join the Angels' bullpen on Tuesday night with Bud Norris landing on the disabled list. Morin has a 5.59 ERA in 9 2/3 innings this season at the major league level. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:51 pm

  • Austin Jackson knocks in three runs
    Austin Jackson doubled twice, knocked in three runs and walked Monday against the Orioles.

    Advice: Another nice game from the player the A's should have signed to be their starting center fielder. Jackson, who is mostly starting against lefties for the Indians, has a .296 average and a .900 OPS in 81 at-bats. Since he has the limited role and he's not a basestealer these days, his AL-only value remains fairly limited. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:29 pm
  • Carlos Gomez hits two-run homer in loss
    Carlos Gomez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Gomez was just activated off the disabled list on Friday after missing four weeks with a right hamstring strain. He homered twice in this weekend set against the M's, with Sunday's homer a two-run shot coming off Christian Bergman in the second inning. Gomez has gone 4-for-12 with a double, two homers and eight RBI in his first three games since returning to action. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:07 pm
  • Goldschmidt blasts two-run homer on Sunday
    Paul Goldschmidt blasted a two-run homer in the first inning on Sunday as the Diamondbacks topped the Phillies in extra innings.

    Advice: Goldschmidt and teammate Chris Owings each homered in the first inning, giving the D'Backs an early 3-0 lead. He also singled, finishing the afternoon 2-for-5. Goldschmidt is slashing an absurd .324/.442/.596 with 16 homers, 51 RBI and 13 stolen bases. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:35 pm
  • Jose Ramirez doubles twice in over Twins
    Jose Ramirez went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Twins.

    Advice: Ramirez and Edwin Encarnacion (two homers, five RBI) accounted for six of the team's 11 hits. For his part, Ramirez's fine work on Sunday continued quite the trend. He has now picked up multiple hits in each of his last six games. He has doubled in each of those games, to boot. All of this action has helped him work out to a beefy .313/.369/.546 triple-slash over 249 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:45 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. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:09 pm

  • Phillips walks it off for Braves again Sunday
    Brandon Phillips hit a walkoff RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning to lead the Braves to a 5-4 victory over the Marlins on Sunday.

    Advice: Phillips also hit a walkoff RBI single in the bottom of the 10th inning Saturday as part of a 3-for-6 night. He finished 1-for-3 with two walks on Sunday afternoon. The veteran second baseman has a surprising .306/.351/.431 batting line in 61 games this season for Atlanta and will probably be a popular name ahead of the July 31 trade deadline.

  • Austin Jackson reaches base four times
    Austin Jackson went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, two walks and two runs scored in Game 2 of a doubleheader in Minnesota on Saturday.

    Advice: Jackson has picked up the pace in June, raising his average from .255 to .286. However, Saturday's home run marked his first extra-base hit since June 4, and his first round-tripper dating back to May 29. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:21 am
  • Phillips caps comeback with walk-off single
    Brandon Phillips' third hit of the day Saturday was a walk-off RBI single in the 10th inning to give the Braves a come-from-behind, 8-7 win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Phillips had a double among his three hits and scored two runs on the afternoon, but it was his frozen rope back up the middle against Marlins closer A.J. Ramos that sent the fans home happy. The 35-year-old has had a heck of a few days, recording three games of three or more hits in his last four contests. That hot stretch has Phillips' overall line at .306/.346/.432 with four homers, 22 RBI, 32 runs scored and seven steals in 60 games played. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:58 pm

  • Goldschmidt goes 2-for-5 with two RBI Sat.
    Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in a 5-1 victory over the Phillies on Saturday.

    Advice: In the seventh inning he laced a double to deep center that plated pitcher Jorge De La Rosa and outfielder Daniel Descalso, then was knocked in by Brandon Drury. Goldschmidt is putting up yet another MVP-caliber season at the plate and on the bases. He has a .322 batting average with 15 home runs, 59 runs scored, 55 RBI and 13 stolen bases. He leads the National League in runs and is tied for second in RBI. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:04 pm
  • Jose Ramirez stays hot with 2 HRs Saturday
    Jose Ramirez went berserk on Saturday, clubbing a pair of homers in the Indians’ win over the Twins.

    Advice: He also doubled as part of a three-hit afternoon while driving in four of Cleveland’s nine runs. Ramirez has hit a ridiculous .611 over his last four games while raising his season average from .279 to .304. Saturday was the 24-year-old's second multi-homer game of the season.

  • Luis Severino shaky in no-decision
    Luis Severino allowed four earned runs, four hits and four walks with six strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision Friday at Oakland.

    Advice: Severino has allowed three or fewer runs in each of his past seven starts, and 11 of his 13 starts overall this season. He still hasn't lost since May 1, and he is unbeaten on the road across seven outings. Severino will look to get back in the win column in his next scheduled start Thursday against the Angels.

  • Cliff Pennington swats first homer of season
    Cliff Pennington belted a solo home run in three at-bats against the Royals.

    Advice: Pennington connected for a solo homer off of good friend Ian Kennedy to provide the only offense for the Halos. There haven't been many highlights for Pennington since May 12, as he entered play with just seven hits (all singles) over the past 43 at-bats, dropping his average from .275 to .222 since May 13.

  • Jesse Chavez on short end of tough loss
    Jesse Chavez allowed two earned runs while scattering nine hits over seven innings in a loss Friday against the Royals.

    Advice: Chavez posted his first quality start in three June outings, and he didn't allow a walk for the first time in five appearances. However, while there was a lack of run support, he allowed a season-high nine hits to dig his own grave. He'll look to get back into the win column Thursday at N.Y. Yankees.

  • Jose Ramirez posts three RBI in Friday's win

  • Carlos Gomez homers in return
    Carlos Gomez had a three-run homer and an RBI single against the Mariners in his return from the disabled list Friday.

    Advice: Welcome back, Carlos. Delino DeShields was fine as a part-time center fielder in his absence, but Jared Hoying did little and the Rangers can still play DeShields in left frequently. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:50 pm
  • Justin Upton knocks in three runs

    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. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:29 pm

    Advice: Phillips got this party started for the Braves with an RBI double off Tanner Roark in the first inning. He would later pick up a two-run double in the seventh inning. By that point, the game was a laugher, as the hit made the score 12-2. For the season as a whole, Phillips is hitting .306/.348/.434 with four homers and 21 RBI over the course of 58 games played.
