  • Lopez impresses
    White Sox pitching prospect Reynaldo Lopez gave up just one run in his six innings of work on Sunday for Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Lopez gave up just three hits on the afternoon, and he struck out five hitters while walking just one. That start pushed his ERA down to 2.94, and he's striking out more than a hitter an inning in the International League. Long story short, he's probably ready to face big-league hitters for the surprising White Sox. Rotoworld.com 23 minutes ago

  • Honeywell pitches well
    Rays prospect Brent Honeywell gave up two earned runs in just over six innings of work for Triple-A Durham on Sunday.

    Advice: Those two runs came on six hits, and he struck out six while walking no one. In his last three outings, Honeywell has struck out 23 hitters and he's walked just one. This is good. The stuff is among the best of any right-handed prospect in baseball, and the command isn't far behind. That's a fun combination. Rotoworld.com 32 minutes ago

  • Multi-hit game for Rosario
    Mets prospect Amed Rosario picked up two hits on Sunday for Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Both of the hits were doubles. He's now hitting .360 in the PCL, and he's slugging .537, so yes, those hits are coming with some authority. Who knows when the Mets will decide to bring Rosario up, but everything he's done this spring suggests he's ready to contribute. Rotoworld.com 36 minutes ago

  • Three hits for Verdugo
    Dodgers prospect Alex Verdugo went 3-for-4 on Sunday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Verdugo also scored two runs, and drew a walk as well. With Cody Bellinger up and crushing big-league pitching, Verdugo is the Dodgers top offensive prospect in their system. The hit tool is plus, and while there isn't much power, he should hit enough doubles to compensate. At some point in 2017, you should see him get a chance to hit at the highest level.

  • Tulo (hamstring) hasn't suffered setback
    Troy Tulowitzki (hamstring) didn't travel with High-A Dunedin for their road trip over the weekend.

    Advice: In other words, Tulowitzki didn't suffer a setback with his hamstring. The 32-year-old is 3-for-8 (.375) with two RBI and two walks through three rehab games and will play in another one on Monday. However, it's unclear when he'll be activated. Tulowitzki has been sidelined since April 21 because of a right hamstring strain. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:05 am

  • Guerra (calf) to return from DL this week
    Junior Guerra (calf) is expected to be activated from the disabled list this week.

    Advice: Good news for the first-place Brewers. Guerra, who went down on Opening Day with a right calf strain, allowed three runs over 6 1/3 innings with six strikeouts and two walks in his second rehab start Saturday with Triple-A Colorado Springs. The Brewers haven't pinpointed a specific day, but he should return during the team's four-game series against the Diamondbacks later this week. Guerra was the team's best starter last season, putting up a 2.81 ERA over 20 starts. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:54 am

  • D'Arnaud (wrist) has three hits in rehab game
    Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) went 3-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI, and a run scored Sunday in a rehab game with Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: D'Arnaud, who is working back from a bone bruise in his wrist, is now 5-for-14 (.357) during his minor league rehab assignment. The expectation is that he will stick around to catch Steven Matz (elbow) on Tuesday, but he's not far off. Rene Rivera has been red-hot during his absence, so it will be interesting to see how Terry Collins balances the playing time moving forward. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:42 am
    10-Day DL
     
  • 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

  • Yu Darvish fans seven in victory over Tigers
    Yu Darvish wasn't at his best on Sunday, but still managed to earn his fifth victory of the season by limiting the Tigers to two runs on five hits over five innings.

    Advice: Darvish racked up seven strikeouts on the night while walking four. He needed 105 pitches to battle through his five frames, but was able to limit the damage overall and turn in a relatively solid start. Now 5-2 on the season, the right-hander owns a 2.83 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 68/27 K/BB ratio through 63 2/3 innings on the year. He'll take on the Blue Jays his next time out in Toronto on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:48 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.

  • 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

  • Matt Adams batting fifth in Braves debut
    Matt Adams is starting at first base and batting fifth in his Braves' debut Sunday.

    Advice: Acquired from the Cardinals via trade on Saturday, Adams will be Atlanta's regular first baseman -- at least against righties -- while Freddie Freeman (wrist) is sidelined. The big first baseman is worth a shot in deeper fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:48 am

  • Tommy Joseph not in Sunday's lineup
    Tommy Joseph is not in the Phillies' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a routine day off. The Phillies are also resting Cameron Rupp, as they have Brock Stassi at first base and Andrew Knapp at catcher. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:05 am
  • Gary Sanchez sore following foul tip
    Gary Sanchez has a bruised jaw after taking a foul tip on Saturday.

    Advice: Sanchez remained in the game and should be fine, although it's possible he could sit out Sunday as a precaution given that he's dealt with a stiff neck recently, as well. He's hitting .303/.395/.500 with four homers this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:57 am
  • Travis d'Arnaud to catch nine on Sunday
    Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) made a pinch-hitting appearance for Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday and will catch nine innings on Sunday.

    Advice: D'Arnaud is expected to need a few days before he is able to return, and Sunday's stint behind the dish will go a long way in determining if he needs extra time or not. Wait to see him officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks before plugging him back into the active fantasy lineup. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:54 pm
    10-Day DL
     
  • Sanchez drills homer vs Rays on Saturday
    Gary Sanchez went 2-for-4 and ripped a solo home run in Saturday's loss to the Rays.

    Advice: The homer came off Rays' starter Matt Andriese in the fifth inning. He missed almost a month of action with a strained biceps but he hasn't let the injury affect his production since returning. He is batting .303/.395/.500 with four home runs and 11 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:03 pm
  • Braves acquire Matt Adams in two-player swap
    Braves acquired 1B/OF Matt Adams and cash considerations from the Cardinals in exchange for 1B/3B Juan Yepez.

    Advice: This move was a long time coming. With a full outfield and Matt Carpenter entrenched at first base, there was simply no path to playing time for Adams in St. Louis. It's a great move for the Braves, who needed a first baseman with Freddie Freeman (broken wrist) out for the next 10-12 weeks. Adams is already en route to Atlanta and is expected to start Sunday's series finale against the Nationals. The 28-year-old is due $2.8 million this year. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:41 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.

  • 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
  • Tulo (hamstring) won't return this weekend
    Troy Tulowitzki (hamstring) is not expected to be activated from the disabled list this weekend.

    Advice: Tulo is batting .375/.500/.375 in three rehab contests with High-A Dunedin so far, but it's apparently been determined that he could use some more game action. Perhaps his right hamstring still isn't feeling quite 100 percent. Ryan Goins will continue to fill in at shortstop for the Blue Jays. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:45 pm

  • 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
    Day-to-Day
     
  • Travis d'Arnaud goes 2-4 in rehab game
    Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) went 2-for-4 Thursday in his first rehab game for High-A St. Lucie.

    Advice: He also caught seven innings behind the plate. D'Arnaud landed on the DL with a bruised wrist earlier this month but should be back with the Mets sometime next week. Rene Rivera has done most of the catching during his absence. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:47 pm
    10-Day DL
     
  • 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.

  • Tulowitzki (hamstring) needs additional work
    Troy Tulowitzki (hamstring) will likely need at least one and possibly two more rehab games before rejoining the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Manager John Gibbson said earlier this week that Tulowitzki could be activated on Wednesday or Thursday. That is no longer the case, though. Tulo was unable to play in a minor league rehab game on Sunday due to wet conditions and is being given a rest day on Wednesday after playing in back-to-back games on Monday and Tuesday. He could potentially return to action with the Jays this weekend. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:21 pm

  • Tulo (hamstring) plays second rehab game
    Troy Tulowitzki (hamstring) went 0-for-2 with a walk as the DH in a rehab game with High-A Dunedin on Tuesday.

    Advice: It was the second game on his current minor league rehab assignment. Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said earlier this week that Tulowitzki could be activated from the disabled list on Wednesday, though Thursday seems a little more likely. Either way, we'll know shortly. Tulowitzki has been sidelined since April 21 because of a right hamstring strain. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:48 am

  • 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

  • Gary Sanchez swats three-run homer in KC
    Gary Sanchez launched a three-run homer and reached base three times in Tuesday's win over the Royals.

    Advice: Sanchez's two-out blast off of Jason Hammel in the third inning got the scoring going and it turned out to be all the runs the Yankees would need (although they added four more). It's Sanchez's second dinger in nine games since he returned from the disabled list, and he's hitting .353 over that span. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:34 pm
  • Yu Darvish fans nine in victory
    Yu Darvish limited the Phillies to one run over seven innings and struck out nine in a victory Tuesday.

    Advice: Darvish has walked a total of two batters his last two times out after issuing 21 free passes in his first seven outings. The victory tonight makes him 4-2 with a 2.76 ERA. Next up for him is a start in Detroit on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:32 pm
  • Tulo (hamstring) singles in rehab game
    Troy Tulowitzki (hamstring) went 1-for-3 with a single and a run scored Monday in his first minor league rehab game with High-A Dunedin.

    Advice: Tulowitzki is expected to play another rehab game on Tuesday before rejoining the Blue Jays on Wednesday. The veteran shortstop has been sidelined since April 21 with a right hamstring strain. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:36 am

  • Junior Guerra (calf) shaky in rehab outing
    Junior Guerra (calf) allowed five runs -- two earned -- over five innings Monday in his first rehab start with Double-A Biloxi.

    Advice: Guerra whiffed four, but he yielded six hits -- including three home runs -- while walking three. It's not a surprise that he wasn't sharp, of course, given that it was his first game in six weeks. He should rejoin the Brewers' rotation later this month if all goes well. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:56 pm
    10-Day DL
     
  • 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
    10-Day DL
     
  • Amed Rosario not a candidate for call-up
    Mets assistant general manager John Ricco said Monday that shortstop prospect Amed Rosario is not a candidate for promotion if Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) goes on the disabled list.

    Advice: The Mets will make a decision Tuesday whether to DL Cabrera, who has a joint issue with his left thumb. There has been plenty of buzz that Rosario, who is one of the top prospects in baseball, could be called up should Cabrera go down, but it appears the club wants him to continue to develop in the minors. Rosario is batting .359/.401/.493 with two homers and seven steals at Triple-A Las Vegas. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:12 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
  • Tulo (hamstring) likely activated Wednesday
    Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Monday that Troy Tulowitzki (hamstring) is expected to be activated for the team's series in Atlanta that begins Wednesday.

    Advice: Tulo played in a simulated game on Sunday and evidently didn't suffer any ill effects with his right hamstring. He's been on the shelf for over three weeks. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:24 pm
    10-Day DL
     
  • Guerra (calf) to begin rehab stint Monday
    Junior Guerra (calf) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Monday with Double-A Biloxi.

    Advice: Guerra, out since Opening Day with a right calf strain, was cleared after making it through a simulated game last Wednesday. The 32-year-old should be back in the Brewers' rotation later this month if all goes well. Rotoworld.com May 15, 8:38 am

  • 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

  • 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
  • Joseph goes 2-for-3 with a run and an RBI
    Tommy Joseph went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: He delivered an RBI double in the fifth inning. He also drew a walk in the game. Joseph really struggled through the season's first month but has found his stroke of late. He has his line up to .255/.327/.449 with four home runs and 15 RBI. He may have busted his slump just in time because the club had considered cutting his playing time if he didn't pick up the pace. Rotoworld.com May 13, 8:22 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

  • 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
    10-Day DL
     
  • 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. Rotoworld.com May 12, 2:26 pm

  • 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
