  • Todd Frazier clubs two-run homer vs. Tigers
    Todd Frazier went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Tigers.

    Advice: Frazier's two-run home run off Jordan Zimmermann in the fifth inning increased the White Sox lead to 7-0. While the slugger has never been one to work much to contact, his results this year are eye-popping even by his all-or-nothing standards. He owns a rough .186/.305/.364 triple-slash with six homers and 21 RBI for the season as a whole. Rotoworld.com 35 minutes ago

  • Franklin Gutierrez leaves game due to illness
    Franklin Gutierrez was removed from Sunday's game against the Cubs due to illness.

    Advice: The Dodgers wouldn't reveal the exact illness. The veteran outfielder was lifted for pinch hitter Yasiel Puig prior to his first at-bat, after playing just one inning in the field. He should be fine to return to action in a day or two. Rotoworld.com 39 minutes ago
  • Franklin Gutierrez leaves game with injury
    Franklin Gutierrez was removed from Sunday's game in the first inning due to an apparent injury.

    Advice: He appeared to tweak something while attempting to run down a fly ball in the outfield in the first inning and was lifted for a pinch hitter before he took his first at-bat. Look for an update from the team shortly. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:57 pm
  • Maldonado slugs fourth home run Sunday
    Martin Maldonado hit his fourth home run of the season Sunday in the Angels' loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: It was a two-run shot in the fourth inning off Marlins starter Jose Urena, but that provided the entirety of the offense for Anaheim in the loss at Miami. Maldonado is slashing .265/.329/.397 in 44 games this season as the Angels' primary catcher. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:57 pm
  • Dustin Pedroia has two hits in loss on Sunday
    Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-4 with a double as the Red Sox were shut out by Christian Bergman and the Mariners on Sunday.

    Advice: As a team, the Red Sox mustered a total of five hits on the afternoon, with Pedroia responsible for the only multi-hit effort and the lone extra-base hit. The veteran second baseman is now hitting .294/.371/.382 with two homers and 21 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:53 pm
  • Duvall homers twice, drives in five vs. Phils
    Adam Duvall finished 3-for-4 with two home runs and five RBI in the Reds' 8-4 win over the Phillies on Sunday.

    Advice: Duvall opened the game's scoring with an RBI single off Phillies starter Zach Eflin in the top of the first inning before tagging Eflin for two-run homers in both the third and fifth. The 28-year-old slugger is batting .274/.317/.548 with 13 home runs and 43 RBI in 48 games this season for Cincinnati. He's currently on pace for a whopping 142 runs batted in. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:48 pm
  • Feldman yields four earned but earns win
    Scott Feldman yielded four earned runs over five innings but got a win Sunday versus the Phillies.

    Advice: Feldman was backed by eight runs, including five homers, from the Cincinnati offense. The right-hander didn't issue a walk and struck out three, but he gave up eight hits. He'll bring a 4-4 record, 4.26 ERA, and 1.30 WHIP into his next start at home against the Braves. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:42 pm

  • Triggs allows six runs, one earned, in loss
    Andrew Triggs allowed six runs -- one earned -- over six innings Sunday as the A's fell to the Yankees.

    Advice: Aaron Judge slugged a grand slam off Triggs in the bottom of the third inning that was preceded by a Matt Joyce fielding error. Triggs gave up six total hits and walked one while striking out three. He'll carry a cool 5-4 record and 2.64 ERA into his next start at home versus the Nationals. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:29 pm

  • Cashner sharp over seven Sunday vs. Jays
    Andrew Cashner delivered seven innings of one-run ball Sunday in the Rangers' win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Cashner gave up a run on a sac fly to Jose Bautista in the bottom of the first inning, but the 30-year-old right-hander posted zeros from there. He only struck out two but also yielded just five hits over seven efficient innings. Cashner now holds a shiny 2.92 ERA in 52 1/3 innings this season, though his 23/27 K/BB ratio shows that he really hasn't been that dominant. A tough matchup against the rival Astros is next.

  • Morales goes 0-for-3 in loss to Rangers
    Kendrys Morales finished 0-for-3 with a walk in the Blue Jays' loss to the Rangers on Sunday.

    Advice: Morales is batting just .247 with a .303 on-base percentage in 46 games this season for Toronto, though he has produced a .448 slugging percentage and nine home runs. A little more consistency would be nice. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:04 pm
    L, 3-1 vs Tex
     
  • Biagini sharp over six innings in loss
    Joe Biagini limited the Rangers to two runs over six innings Sunday in a loss.

    Advice: Biagini did his part, striking out seven batters and issuing only one walk over six strong innings, but Toronto's offense was only able to manage one run of support in the afternoon loss at Rogers Centre. Biagini now holds a sharp 3.64 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and 37/9 K/BB ratio in 42 innings (five starts, 14 relief appearances) this season for the Blue Jays. He'll get the Yankees at home next.

  • MadBum (shoulder) could begin throwing Friday
    Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) could resume a throwing program on Friday.

    Advice: It would be the first step in a lengthy rehab process. Bumgarner would begin with some light catch and then slowly build up his throwing progression. Once he's deemed ready for game action, he will need five rehab starts before rejoining the Giants' rotation. This is all assuming he progresses without a setback, which is far from a sure thing when you're coming back from a shoulder injury. Bumgarner won't be back until late July even in a best-case scenario. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:44 am

  • McCarthy (knee) expects to make next start
    Brandon McCarthy (knee) expects to make his next scheduled start on Thursday in St. Louis.

    Advice: An MRI has confirmed that McCarthy is dealing with patella tendinitis in his right knee, but it's something he said he's dealt with all season and he says he can pitch through it. The tall right-hander has allowed just one run on five hits and two walks across 12 innings in his last two starts. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:13 am

  • Billy Hamilton getting a day off Sunday
    Billy Hamilton is not in the Reds' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It looks to be a routine day of rest for the speedster. Scott Schebler has moved over to center field, Patrick Kivlehan is in right and Jose Peraza has ascended to the leadoff spot. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:51 am
  • Marco Hernandez (shoulder) moved to 60-day DL
    Red Sox transferred INF Marco Hernandez from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Blaine Boyer. Hernandez is out for the season following shoulder surgery. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:48 am

  • Dario Alvarez (elbow) placed on DL
    Rangers placed LHP Dario Alvarez on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 26, with a left elbow strain.

    Advice: It's unclear at this point how long he might be out. Alvarez has posted a 3.48 ERA out of the Rangers' bullpen this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:43 am

  • Robert Whalen optioned to Triple-A
    Mariners optioned RHP Robert Whalen to Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Whalen allowed seven hits, five runs and two walks over 5 1/3 innings against the Red Sox on Saturday. He's no longer needed with James Paxton (forearm) returning this week. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:38 am

  • Blaine Boyer called up from Triple-A
    Red Sox purchased the contract of RHP Blaine Boyer from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Boyer is taking the roster spot vacated by Brian Johnson, who was sent down after posting a shutout in a spot start Saturday. It could be a one-day stay for Boyer, as he would seem to be a prime candidate to be designated for assignment when David Price (elbow) is activated Monday. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:00 am
  • Ty Blach posts quality starts against Braves
    Ty Blach allowed just two earned runs, six hits and three walks with five strikeouts across 7 2/3 innings in a win against Atlanta on Saturday.

    Advice: Blach also helped himself by going 2-for-3 with an RBI. He has turned in three excellent outings, posting quality starts and wins during the impressive span. He is 3-0 with a 2.49 ERA during the span, lasting at least seven innings in each of his past four outings. Blach is subbing for the injured Madison Bumgarner and he is pitching so well that he could keep his rotation spot once MadBum is finally healthy. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:24 am
  • Ian Desmond collects two more hits in loss
    Ian Desmond went 2-for-4 in Saturday's loss against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Desmond extended his hitting streak to five games and he has hit safely in 13 of the past 15 outings. He missed most of the first month due to a hand injury, but he is back and hitting for a respectable .284 average. Desmond has lacked a bit of the power displayed last season in Texas, but you can expect it to return over time, especially in the rarefied air in Denver. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:50 pm

  • Andrew McCutchen ties season high in RBI
    Andrew McCutchen finished 2-for-3 with a double, home run and three RBI in Saturday's win against the Mets.

    Advice: The three RBI tied a season best for McCutchen, who entered with just one RBI over his past eight outings. It has been a trying season for Cutch, who is still hitting just .212 with eight doubles, a triple, seven homers and 23 RBI over 179 at-bats. He'll look to keep it going against Matt Harvey and the Mets in Sunday's series finale. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:35 pm
  • Gerrit Cole knocked around in no-decision
    Gerrit Cole allowed four earned runs, 10 hits and a walk across five innings in a no-decision against the Mets on Saturday.

    Advice: Cole was looking very ace-like with eight straight quality starts from April 9-May 17, but he has been hit hard for nine earned runs, 20 hits and five homers over 9 2/3 innings across his past two outings. He'll look to get back on track next Friday in a rematch with the Mets at Citi Field. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:31 pm
  • Addison Reed blows save in Pittsburgh
    Addison Reed allowed a run and three hits in the ninth inning for a blown save Saturday at Pittsburgh.

    Advice: The Pirates rallied to force extra innings and the Mets succumbed in the 10th inning. Reed has converted six of his eight save chances, not a terribly impressive percentage. He also has an unsightly 3.51 ERA through 25 2/3 innings. Despite the most recent blown save he is unlikely to be skating on thin ice, although he did ruin manager Terry Collins' 68th birthday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:17 pm
  • Miguel Montero makes most of opportunity
    Miguel Montero had one of the team's three hits in Saturday's game at L.A. Dodgers.

    Advice: It wasn't all good, as he did strike out once. When Willson Contreras needs a rest the Cubs do not lose anything by using the veteran Montero behind the dish. He has hit safely in each of his past three appearances and is slashing .328/.362/.500 across 64 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:56 pm
  • Ross Striplng earns old-fashioned save
    Ross Stripling allowed just one hit over three scoreless innings while striking out two batters for a save Saturday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Stripling was impressive throwing 33 of his 44 pitches for strikes, so manager Dave Roberts allowed him to finish the game and save his bullpen for another day. He has been a godsend for Roberts, as the stretched out sometimes starter has filled in admirably when the starting pitcher goes down to injury. Stripling is cruising along with a 2.54 ERA and is useful in deeper rotisserie formats using true middle relievers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:34 pm
  • Brandon McCarthy exits with knee tendinitis
    Brandon McCarthy left Saturday's game against the Cubs with right knee tendinitis.

    Advice: He's headed for an MRI. McCarthy started feeling discomfort in the fourth inning but went another two innings before getting the hook from manager Dave Roberts. The right-hander pitched in a win over the Cubs, scattering two hits and one walk over six shutout innings. If McCarthy lands on the disabled list, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Julio Urias would be candidates to replace him in the starting rotation. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:30 pm

  • Robert Whalen shelled in spot start
    Robert Whalen struggled in his Mariners debut, scattering seven hits, five runs and two walks over 5 1/3 ineffective innings in Saturday’s loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: All things considered, Whalen was probably fortunate to allow just five runs. The Mariners had relievers warming in the bullpen during Whalen’s 33-pitch first inning, which included three hits, three runs, two walks and two hit batsmen. Whalen settled down after that but was never sharp. He didn’t miss many bats and was bailed out by a number of base-running mistakes by the Red Sox. Jackie Bradley Jr. finally ended his day by smacking a two-run homer into the right field bullpen. Even with Seattle’s rotation running on fumes, it’s hard to imagine Whalen getting another start after Saturday’s meltdown. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:59 pm

  • Todd Frazier sitting for Saturday's nightcap
    Todd Frazier is not in the lineup for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Tigers.

    Advice: Frazier went 0-for-4 in the opener, dropping his season average to a dismal .184. Matt Davidson will man third base and bat fifth against Tigers starter Buck Farmer in the nightcap. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:42 pm

  • Dustin Pedroia returns to Red Sox lineup
    Dustin Pedroia (knee) returned to the Red Sox' starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Pedroia was removed from Thursday's game with a minor knee injury and sat out on Friday as a precautionary measure. He's hitting second against Rob Whalen and the Mariners on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:43 am
  • Melky Cabrera blasts three-run homer in win
    Melky Cabrera blasted a three-run homer on Friday, powering the White Sox to an 8-2 victory over the visiting Tigers.

    Advice: Cabrera's three-run shot in the eighth inning capped off the scoring in the ballgame. He also added an RBI single in the sixth inning, finishing the night 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and four RBI. For the season, the veteran outfielder is hitting .251/.301/.357 with four homers and 25 RBI. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:58 pm
  • Maldonado slugs two-run homer vs. Marlins
    Martin Maldonado went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Friday’s loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: Maldonado took Dan Straily deep in the sixth inning. He later hurt his thumb tagging Giancarlo Stanton at home plate in the eighth inning, though he remained in the game. The 30-year-old has handled the bulk of the catching duties with the Angels this season while batting .271/.333/.388 with three home runs and 12 RBI through 42 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:06 pm
  • Kendrys Morales leaves the yard in win Friday
    Kendrys Morales clobbered his ninth home run of the season on Friday as the Blue Jays outlasted the Rangers.

    Advice: His solo shot in the fifth inning increased the Jays' advantage to 6-3. He also singled in the ballgame, finishing the night 2-for-4. With the two-hit attack, he's now hitting .250/.300/.452 with nine homers and 26 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:00 pm

  • Adam Duvall homers again as Reds win
    Adam Duvall homered for the second consecutive game as the Reds dispatched of the Phillies in Philadelphia on Friday night.

    Advice: Duvall had gone 15 games without a long ball prior to Thursday's game and wasted no time hitting another one. He finished the evening 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored and is now slashing .264/.309/.517 with 11 homers and 38 RBI. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:09 pm
  • Billy Hamilton swipes two more bases in win
    Billy Hamilton went 0-for-3 and swiped another pair of bases in Friday's victory over the Phillies.

    Advice: Hamilton showed off how dangerous his speed can be in the first inning when he drew a leadoff walk. He then promptly swiped second and third base and came in to score on a ground ball off the bat of Joey Votto. He's now hitting .254/.310/.337 with one homer, 16 RBI and 25 stolen bases on the year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:07 pm
  • Robert Whalen to start on Saturday
    Robert Whalen will start on Saturday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: It will be his first appearance as a Mariner. Whalen held a 4.09 ERA in 22 innings -- four starts -- at Triple-A Tacoma and is a poor streaming option. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:58 pm

  • Dustin Pedroia (knee) sitting out on Friday
    Dustin Pedroia (knee) is not in the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Pedroia's removal from Thursday's game with a sore left knee was deemed precautionary, but the club has decided to rest him for at least one start. Josh Rutledge is at second base. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:15 pm
  • Andrew McCutchen batting sixth for Pirates
    Andrew McCutchen is batting sixth for the Pirates on Friday versus the Mets.

    Advice: It's the first time in his career that he's hit any lower than cleanup. McCutchen is in an 11-for-70 tailspin at the plate that's dropped his season line to .203/.274/.360. He faces the tall task of trying to snap out of his funk against Jacob deGrom. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:55 am
  • Pedroia leaves game with left knee soreness
    Dustin Pedroia left Thursday's game against the Rangers with left knee soreness.

    Advice: Josh Rutledge replaced Pedroia at second base to begin the sixth inning. The Red Sox said his removal was "precautionary" while beat writer Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe noted that Pedroia pleaded to stay in the game. He went 0-for-2 with a walk before exiting. This is the same knee that Pedroia injured earlier this year when Manny Machado slid into him at second base. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:21 pm
  • McCutchen absent from Pirates lineup Thurs
    Andrew McCutchen is out of the Pirates' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon.

    Advice: Adam Frazier will start in center field and Jose Osuna will start in right field in the Bucs' series finale against the Braves. McCutchen has posted a disappointing .203/.274/.360 batting line in 46 games this season for Pittsburgh. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:08 am
  • Duvall smacks two-run bomb vs Tribe Wed.
    Adam Duvall ripped a two-run homer in Wednesday's win over the Indians.

    Advice: His blast in the fourth inning accounted for all the runs his team would muster against starter Trevor Bauer, but they added two more against closer Cody Allen to win in the ninth inning. Duvall finished 1-for-4 in the contest and is batting a swell .259/.305/.500 with 10 longballs and 37 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:24 pm

  • Todd Frazier reaches the seats in Arizona
    Todd Frazier finished 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's game at Arizona.

    Advice: It was just the fifth homer of the season for Frazier, who has been a bit of a disappointment since coming over from the Reds after the 2015 season. While he belted a career-high 40 homers last year on the south side, he posted a career-worst .225. This season he is hitting a paltry .192, although he is showing signs of life with eight hits over his past 30 hits (.267). Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:55 pm

  • Andrew Cashner gives up five runs
    Andrew Cashner yielded five runs in five innings Tuesday in a loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Cashner walked four and threw two wild pitches. He has a 21/25 K/BB ratio after eight starts, and he's been incredibly lucky to sport a 3.18 ERA to this point. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:12 pm
  • Biangini only lasts 4 1/3 against Brewers
    Joe Biagini gave up three runs over 4 1/3 innings in Tuesday’s 4-3 win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Biagini blanked the Brew Crew through the first four frames, but he got BABIP’d to death in the fifth with four singles, a walk and three runs. He issued three free passes on the night and recorded three strikeouts. Biagini was good in his first two starts, but that hasn’t been the case the last two times out. He’ll try for better results against the Reds in his next outing. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:09 pm

    Kendrys Morales smacked a two-run homer Tuesday in Milwaukee.

    Advice: Morales' longball off of Jimmy Nelson in the fifth inning extended the Blue Jays' lead to 4-0 and they wound up hanging on 4-3. While his .244/.295/.433 batting line isn't anything to write home about, Morales has swatted eight home runs and driven in 25 runs. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:04 pm

    Advice: The 32-year-old outfielder is now batting just .234/.285/.310 in 40 games this season for Chicago. Melky batted .296/.345/.455 in 151 games last season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:21 pm
  • Scott Feldman strikes out nine in win
    Scott Feldman pitched six innings and allowed one run Monday in a defeat of the Indians.

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

  • Blach limits Cubs to three runs over seven
    Ty Blach limited the Cubs to three earned runs over seven-plus innings Monday for his second win.

    Advice: The lefty was working on a shutout until the bottom of the eighth inning, when Jason Heyward singled, Javier Baez struck a two-run homer, and Ian Happ tripled to drive Blach from the game. He yielded eight hits in all but struck out three and didn't issue a single walk. Brach now stands 2-2 with a 4.10 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and 14/10 K/BB ratio in 41 2/3 innings this season. He lines up to face the Braves at home in his next outing. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:20 pm
  • Cole allows five earned runs on 10 hits
    Gerrit Cole was lit up for five earned runs over 4 2/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Braves.

    Advice: Cole didn't have it in this one, registering just two strikeouts while surrendering a walk and 10 hits, including two home runs. The right-hander watched his ERA jump from 2.84 to 3.36, and he now stands 2-5 on a last-place Pirates team with an overall record of 20-25. Cole, a potential trade candidate this summer, will get the Mets at home next. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:04 pm

  • Red Sox knock up Andrew Triggs for six runs
    Andrew Triggs allowed six runs (five earned) on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Triggs struck out seven and walked three in what proved to be an at-times trying start. After the A's drew ahead by a 3-2 score heading into the fifth inning, the 28-year-old right-hander proceeded to surrender RBI hits to Mookie Betts and Dustin Pedroia to fall behind once more. A subsequent two-run home run by Mitch Moreland in the sixth inning would drive him from the game. This was just the third time in nine starts that Triggs has allowed more than two runs. He will try for the rebound when he carries his 2.77 ERA and 1.13 WHIP into a road showdown with the Yankees next time out. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:30 pm

  • McCarthy limits Marlins to one run over six
    Brandon McCarthy pitched well in Sunday's win over the Marlins, surrendering one run on three hits over six innings.

    Advice: McCarthy gave up an RBI single to A.J. Ellis in the fifth inning, but otherwise kept the Marlins off the scoreboard over his six frames of work. He struck out five and walked one on the afternoon. Next up on the docket, a home start against the Cubs. The veteran right-hander will carry a 3.76 ERA and 1.18 WHIP into that contest.

  • Billy Hamilton swipes two more bases Sun.
    Billy Hamilton stole two more bases Sunday in the Reds' loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: He swiped second and third base in the bottom of the first inning after reaching on a fielding error. Hamilton officially went 0-for-5 at the plate and is batting just .258/.311/.348 on the season, but the 26-year-old speedster has racked up 23 stolen bases in 40 games. He's on pace for 87 steals.

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

    Advice: The switch-hitting veteran has hit safely in seven of the past eight games while driving in nine runs over his past 10 outings. Cabrera remains a helpful fantasy option in most AL-only and deeper mixed formats despite a mediocre .238 overall average. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:03 am
  • Addison Reed secures sixth save of season
    Addison Reed worked around a single and two walks allowed to record a scoreless ninth inning Saturday against the Angels for his sixth save.

    Advice: The two free passes were the first two issued over 22 2/3 innings this season by Reed. Chalk it up as one poor outing, as he threw just 15 of his 29 pitches for strikes. And hey, he still got the job done and worked around the base runners for the save. There is absolutely no reason to push the panic button. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:42 pm
  • Duvall has two RBI, two runs against Rockies
    Adam Duvall went 1-for-4 with two RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base in Saturday's win over the Rockies.

    Advice: Duvall had an RBI single in the Reds' six-run sixth inning, and he also plated a run with a groundout in the seventh. The steal was also his third of the year, after he stole six in 2016. Duvall has just one homer since May 1, but he's found other ways to contribute at the plate, compiling a .259/.306/.500 line overall. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:40 pm
  • Pedroia goes 2-for-4 with an RBI vs A's
    Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Saturday's loss to the Athletics.

    Advice: His fifth-inning single drove in Deven Marrero with the team's third run but they would ultimately fall well short in the ballgame. He has a .284 batting average with two home runs, 16 RBI, 13 runs scored and one stolen base. The fact he has more walks than strikeouts has helped boost his .357 on-base percentage.

  • Reed notches fifth save of season
    Addison Reed tossed a 1-2-3 ninth inning against the Angels on Friday for his fifth save of the season.

    Advice: It was his first save since Jeurys Familia (shoulder) underwent surgery last Friday. Reed blew a save in rough fashion against the Brewers last Sunday, but he should be a strong fantasy option moving forward. The big issue with the Mets’ bullpen will be the bridge to the ninth inning. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:39 pm
  • Pedroia picks up pair of singles against A's
    Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-4 in Thursday's loss to the A's.

    Advice: While this was Pedroia's fourth multi-hit game in his last 10 contests, it has been a quiet season for the veteran second baseman on the whole. He is hitting just .281/.358/.374 for the season. His average and on-base percentage are fine, but the power just has not been there. Pedroia has picked up only nine extra-base hits in 139 at-bats.

  • Morales, Blue Jays hang nine runs on Braves
    Kendrys Morales finished 4-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored to lead the Blue Jays to a lopsided 9-0 victory over the Braves on Thursday.

    Advice: Morales doubled among his four hits, but it was a pair of RBI singles -- one in the third inning, one in the fourth -- that plated his two runs driven in. The four hits were as many as the designated hitter had in his previous eight games combined. The 33-year-old is hitting .255/.302/.443 with seven homers and 23 RBI in his first year with the Jays.

  • Billy Hamilton scores twice in loss
    Billy Hamilton went 2-for-5 with a double and two runs scored Thursday against the Cubs.

    Advice: No stolen bases for Hamilton, even with Jon Lester on the mound for the Cubs. Hamilton, though, is having a great time at the plate this month, having hit .324/.368/.493 with 19 runs scored, 11 RBI and 10 steals. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:45 pm
  • Feldman coughs up seven runs in 2 2/3 frames
    Scott Feldman was charged with seven runs -- five earned -- in just 2 2/3 innings while taking a loss to the Cubs on Wednesday.

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

  • Cashner gives up two runs in seven innings
    Andrew Cashner surrendered two runs in seven innings of a lopsided 9-3 win over the Phillies on Wednesday.

    Advice: He sailed through six innings unscathed before giving up a two-run homer to Michael Saunders in his seventh and final inning of work. He allowed eight base hits and one walk while fanning only two batters. It was Cashner's first win of the season despite an excellent 2.45 ERA through seven starts. It is unlikely he will continue to rock such a great ERA considering he has more walks than strikeouts on the season. He has just 19 strikeouts and 21 walks in 40 1/3 innings.
