  • Reds activate Finnegan from 60-day DL
    Reds activated LHP Brandon Finnegan from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Finnegan, out since mid-April with a strained left trapezius muscle, will make his return to the Reds' rotation Monday night against the Cardinals. The southpaw posted a 3.00 ERA and 10/3 K/BB ratio in 12 innings over three minor league rehab starts. Most fantasy owners can afford to wait and see with this first start back, but he remains an intriguing talent. Rotoworld.com 31 minutes ago

  • Sabathia (hamstring) throws bullpen session
    CC Sabathia (hamstring) threw 35 pitches in a bullpen session Sunday.

    Advice: It was his first bullpen session since being placed on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring earlier this month. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Sabathia is progressing "very, very well" and mentioned that a simulated game could be the next step. The veteran southpaw appears on track to return before the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:38 am

  • Meadows expected to miss four weeks
    Pirates prospect outfielder Austin Meadows is expected to miss up to four weeks after receiving a platelet rich plasma (PRP) injection last week for a right hamstring tear.

    Advice: Meadows suffered the injury last week. It's the latest frustrating development for the 22-year-old, who has struggled to the tune of a .248/.313/.358 batting line with four homers and 35 RBI through 64 games this season in Triple-A. Meadows was mentioned as a possibility for a call-up after Starling Marte's PED suspension back in April, but the Pirates didn't think he was ready at the time. At this point, the priority should be getting him healthy to finish the year on a high note. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:35 am

  • Anderson suffers hamstring cramp
    Tyler Anderson suffered a hamstring cramp during his start against the Dodgers on Sunday.

    Advice: Anderson was making his first start in 3 1/2 weeks after landing on the disabled list with left knee inflammation. The southpaw began his outing with two scoreless innings before things went south in the third. He lobbied to stay in the game before being replaced by Jordan Lyles. He'll be reevaluated before the Rockies decide on the next step. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:11 am
  • Report: Rays front-runners for Hechavarria
    Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports that the Rays are "believed to be the front-runners" to acquire Marlins shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria.

    Advice: The Rays would presumably install Hechavarria as their regular shortstop and move Tim Beckham to second base. Frisaro notes that the Marlins are in discussions with multiple teams, but they hope to get a deal done before Tuesday. Hechavarria, who is nearing a return from an oblique injury, was batting .277/.288/.385 with one home run and six RBI over 20 games prior to landing on the DL. The 28-year-old is making $4.35 million this season and is under team control through 2018. The Marlins want to clear his salary and net one or two pitching prospects in return.

  • Franklin (hamstring) appears as pinch-hitter
    Nick Franklin (hamstring) flew out as a pinch-hitter Sunday against the Braves.

    Advice: Franklin left Friday's game with hamstring tightness and was ejected from Saturday's game after yelling something from the dugout. The 26-year-old is hitting .195/.258/.317 with two homers and 10 RBI over 53 games this season in a utility role. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:53 am

  • Sogard (knee) singles in return to action
    Eric Sogard (knee) went 1-for-5 with a single in his return to action Sunday against the Braves.

    Advice: Sogard was limited to pinch-hitting duties on Saturday after he was hit in the knee by a pitch during Friday's game. The 31-year-old has been an unexpected contributor this season, hitting .353/.462/.529 with three home runs and 14 RBI over 38 games. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:42 am
  • Bumgarner (shoulder) begins rehab assignment
    Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) tossed three no-hit innings Sunday in his first minor league rehab start with the Giants' Arizona Rookie League team.

    Advice: Bumgarner, who is coming back from a sprained left AC joint in his shoulder, struck out two and walked one. According to Tommy Stokke of FanRag Sports, the southpaw sat in the 88-91 mph range with his fastball. The plan calls for him to return to San Francisco on Monday and throw another bullpen session later in the week before continuing his rehab stint. If all goes well, the Giants' ace should return by the end of July. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:31 am

  • Anderson surrenders four runs against Dodgers
    Tyler Anderson allowed four runs on five hits over 2 1/3 innings while taking a no-decision in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Anderson tossed a pair of scoreless frames before running into trouble in the third inning, when he surrendered two-run homers to Kike Hernandez and Cody Bellinger to almost completely erase what had been a 5-0 advantage. Anderson struck out one while walking two in the short outing. He made the start in place of German Marquez, who has been pushed back to toe the rubber against the Giants on Monday. It is not clear at this juncture whether Anderson will receive another start or be dropped back into the bullpen. Either way, he has struggled to a 6.11 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in 63 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:43 pm
  • Josh Tomlin struggles in Sunday's clunker
    Josh Tomlin couldn’t get out of his own way on Sunday, surrendering nine hits, four runs and three runs over 5 2/3 innings in the Indians’ loss to Minnesota.

    Advice: He fanned five and threw 57 of his 96 pitches for strikes. Jason Castro burned Tomlin for two doubles while Eddie Rosario took him deep for a solo home run in the fourth inning. The right-hander now finds himself in a four-way tie with Ricky Nolasco, Rick Porcello and Jeff Samardzija for the major-league-lead with nine losses. He’ll hope to avoid a 10th Friday against Detroit. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:01 pm
  • Michael Pineda hit hard in loss to Rangers
    Michael Pineda struggled in Sunday’s loss to the Rangers, surrendering six hits, seven runs and a walk over four shaky innings.

    Advice: He recorded four strikeouts while throwing 48 of his 71 pitches for strikes. Pineda had trouble keeping the ball in the yard on Sunday, allowing homers to Adrian Beltre, Shin-Soo Choo and Drew Robinson. His only clean inning was a 1-2-3 third. Pineda’s ERA ballooned from 3.56 to 4.12 with Sunday’s implosion. The right-hander has another challenging matchup coming up Friday at Houston. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:03 pm
  • Donaldson hits two-run double in win over KC
    Josh Donaldson went 1-for-4 with a two-run double in Sunday's win over the Royals.

    Advice: Donaldson hit a two-run double in what eventually evolved into a five-run sixth inning by the Jays. He has been dealing with a minor knee injury over the past few days, but looked no worse for the wear on Sunday. The third baseman is hitting .281/.383/.537 with eight homers and 20 RBI across 125 at-bats this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:48 pm
  • Cardinals option Chad Huffman to Triple-A
    Cardinals optioned 1B Chad Huffman to Triple-A Memphis.

    Advice: Huffman did a nice job during his time with the Cardinals, slashing .286/.333/.429 in only 14 at-bats. He'll return to Triple-A where he'll see everyday action until he's needed again. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:33 pm

  • MadBum (shoulder) pitching in rookie lg game
    Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) will make an appearance for the Giants' Arizona Rookie League team on Sunday.

    Advice: Bumgarner also hit off a tee Sunday, as the left-hander's recovery from a sprained left AC joint continues to progress more quickly than expected. If he gets through Sunday's appearance with no issues, Bumgarner is expected to be officially cleared to begin a rehab assignment. He's tracking toward a return just after the All-Star break.

  • Jeanmar Gomez officially released by Phillies
    Phillies released RHP Jeanmar Gomez.

    Advice: The Phils designated their former closer for assignment last week and have now officially given him a pink slip. Gomez holds an ugly 7.25 ERA this season, but he should be able to land on his feet somewhere. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:39 am

  • Tyler Anderson to start Sunday vs. Dodgers
    Tyler Anderson will start Sunday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: German Marquez was scheduled to go Sunday, but instead he'll start Monday against the Giants. Anderson's role has been unclear since coming off the disabled list earlier this week. He pitched an inning of relief on Thursday, though the majority of his outings this year have come as a starter. He's fared poorly against the Dodgers this year, going 0-3 with a 5.74 ERA in three starts. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:11 pm
  • Nick Franklin tossed for arguing Saturday
    Nick Franklin was ejected for arguing Saturday against the Braves.

    Advice: Franklin wasn't in the lineup after leaving the previous night's game with hamstring tightness, but was thrown out by second base umpire Jerry Meals for something he said from the dugout. Apparently he was upset the Braves were allowed to challenge a pickoff play at first base after waiting longer than their allotted 30 seconds. The ejection occurred with one out in the first inning.

  • Eric Sogard (knee) not in lineup on Saturday
    Eric Sogard (knee) is not in the Brewers' starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Sogard was removed from Friday's game after being hit by a pitch in his knee and apparently needs another day to rest. Keon Broxton has been elevated to the leadoff spot in the Brewers' lineup in a tasty matchup against James Shields and the White Sox. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:46 am
  • Finnegan (trapezius) could return Monday
    Brandon Finnegan (trapezius) could rejoin the Reds' rotation on Monday in St. Louis.

    Advice: Finnegan has posted a 3.00 ERA and 10/3 K/BB ratio over 12 innings across three rehab starts. He's be relatively limited from a pitch count perspective Monday but is probably built up enough at this point to give it a go. Finnegan has been sidelined since mid-April due to a strained left trapezius muscle. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:50 pm

  • Rays the favorites for Adeiny Hechavarria?
    ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the "perception of some involved" in Adeiny Hechavarria trade talks is that the Rays have "created some traction."

    Advice: The Marlins appear eager to dump Hechavarria and his $4.35 million contract and a deal is expected to go down sometime over the weekend. The Orioles and Cardinals have reportedly been interested in addition to the Rays, but it appears Tampa Bay has inched ahead. Tim Beckham can move to second base to clear a starting spot for the slick-fielding Hechavarria. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:40 pm
  • Tyler Anderson hasn't been told his role
    Tyler Anderson said Thursday that Rockies manager Bud Black has not told him what his role will be.

    Advice: Anderson tossed a scoreless relief inning Thursday versus the Diamondbacks in his first appearance since being activated from the disabled list. He'd seem to be a good bet to rejoin the rotation at some point, but it's unclear when that might be. The Rockies currently have six starters and are poised to get a seventh next week when Jon Gray (foot) returns. They'll likely wind up mixing and matching as they look to keep the workloads down for their young starters. "As far as a plan, things will become clear here over the next couple of days," Black said Thursday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:25 am
  • Josh Donaldson (knee) aiming to return Friday
    Josh Donaldson (knee) is hoping to return Friday against the Royals.

    Advice: Donaldson was a late scratch Thursday against Texas after hitting his knee on the concrete while stretching in pregame warmups. Russell Martin ended up starting at third base with Kendrys Morales DHing. Donaldson has cooled off a bit but is still slashing .286/.389/.554 with eight homers in 112 at-bats this season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:01 pm
  • Eric Sogard doubles twice against Pirates
    Eric Sogard went 3-for-4 with two doubles and two runs scored Thursday against the Pirates.

    Advice: The two doubles give him 15 extra-base hits in 112 at-bats. Sogard, who didn't play in the majors last year, had 16 extra-base hits in 372 at-bats in 2015 and 11 in 291 at-bats in 2014. In what's been a pretty crazy year so far, Sogard's performance just might be the biggest outlier of them all. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:39 pm
  • Marlins expected to trade Adeiny Hechavarria
    Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports has heard from rival executives that Marlins shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria "will be traded in [the] next few days."

    Advice: Passan says Miami is "still shopping offers" for the 28-year-old, who is currently on the disabled list with a strained left oblique but due to return to the Marlins' active roster this weekend. Hechavarria has batted just .255/.291/.337 in 640 career major league games, but he's a good defender and under contractual control through 2018. J.T. Riddle has been starting at shortstop for the Fish. Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald notes that the Cardinals, Orioles and Rays have all checked in on Hechavarria. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:13 pm
  • Donaldson scratched Thurs. with sore knee
    Josh Donaldson has been scratched from the Blue Jays' lineup Thursday with a sore left knee.

    Advice: Kendrys Morales will now start at DH against the Rangers after being left out of the lineup initially. The severity of Donaldson's knee injury is unclear. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:13 am
  • Rockies activate Tyler Anderson from DL
    Rockies activated LHP Tyler Anderson from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: Anderson worked five innings of one-run ball with six strikeouts Sunday in a rehab start with Triple-A Albuquerque. The left-hander missed three weeks with inflammation in his left knee. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:01 am
  • Meadows undergoing tests on hamstring
    Pirates prospect Austin Meadows tweaked his right hamstring Wednesday in a game at Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: He is scheduled to undergo an MRI and will likely spend a bit of time on the Triple-A disabled list. Meadows, the ninth overall pick in the 2013 MLB Draft, has batted just .248/.313/.358 with four home runs in 64 games this season for Indy. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:12 am

  • Bumgarner (shoulder) throws simulated game
    Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) threw a successful simulated game on Wednesday.

    Advice: Bumgarner made 35 pitches in two innings during Wednesday's simulated game. Next up, three scheduled innings in an Arizona Rookie League game on Sunday. So long as he makes it through the weekend with no discomfort or setback, he would then head out on a minor league rehab assignment. The ace southpaw figures to be ready to rejoin the Giants' rotation some time around the All-Star Break. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:18 pm

  • Nick Franklin leaves the yard in loss to Bucs
    Nick Franklin homered and plated two runs on Tuesday, but it wasn't enough to lead his club to victory over the Pirates.

    Advice: Franklin got the Brewers on the board with a solo shot in the second inning then added on a run-scoring double in the third. He finished the night 2-for-3 and is now hitting .192/.259/.321 with a pair of homers and 10 RBI in his limited action this season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:55 pm

  • Josh Tomlin gives up five runs to Orioles
    Josh Tomlin surrendered three homers and five runs over 4 2/3 innings Tuesday against the Orioles.

    Advice: It's past time for the Indians to try someone else in Tomlin's spot. The team has scored at least 10 runs in four of Tomlin's 14 starts. In the other 10, they've gone 1-9. Tomlin currently has a 6.07 ERA that jumps all of the way to 7.91 if you exclude his three starts against a Royals team that couldn't hit at all for two months. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:20 pm
  • Michael Pineda strikes out seven Angels
    Michael Pineda yielded three runs -- one earned -- in 5 2/3 innings and struck out seven against the Angels on Tuesday.

    Advice: Pineda came up one out shy of his ninth quality start in 14 tries. He's given up three earned runs or less 11 times and still hasn't allowed more than five runs in any outing. He's set to face the Rangers on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:07 pm
  • Hechavarria (oblique) plays fourth rehab game
    Adeiny Hechavarria (oblique) finished 0-for-2 with a walk Tuesday at High-A Jupiter.

    Advice: It was his fourth minor league rehab game. Hechavarria, out since May 10 with a left oblique strain, is on track to return to the Marlins by the end of this week. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:29 pm
  • Phillies DFA former closer Jeanmar Gomez
    Phillies designated RHP Jeanmar Gomez for assignment.

    Advice: Gomez opened the season as the Phillies' closer even after his fade last season, but he lasted about a week in the job and ultimately posted a 7.25 ERA over 18 appearances. The 29-year-old is making $4.2 million this season and Philly will have to eat what remains on that contract. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:58 am

  • Eric Sogard to keep Brewers' second base job?
    Brewers manager Craig Counsell seemed to indicate Monday that Eric Sogard could continue to start at second base after Jonathan Villar (back) returns.

    Advice: "We have a tough situation," Counsell admitted. "Sogard is playing extremely well. It’s not 30 at-bats anymore (Sogard had 116 plate appearances). We’re a ways into it and Eric Sogard continues to play at a really high level and get on base at a really incredible pace. He’s been a productive offensive and defensive player. He’s playing at a really high level. I think there's space for us to give (Villar) some playing time. But we're looking for the players who are helping us win games." Villar is slated to begin a rehab assignment this week and return next week. Both players ultimately figure to get an opportunity, but it sounds like Sogard could have a leg up for the second base job, at least initially. He's sporting a .350/.458/.530 batting line this season, while Villar has hit only .213/.283/.342. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:20 am
  • Reds place Bronson Arroyo (shoulder) on DL
    Reds placed RHP Bronson Arroyo on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right shoulder.

    Advice: Arroyo told reporters after Sunday's loss to the Dodgers that his shoulder has been "barking" for the last couple of weeks, and in the same conversation the 40-year-old right-hander mentioned possibly retiring. He's posted a 7.35 ERA in 14 starts this season for the Reds. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:11 am

  • Tyler Anderson (knee) works 5 IP at AAA
    Tyler Anderson (knee) tossed five innings of one-run ball while striking out six batters Sunday in a rehab start with Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: Anderson threw strikes on 51 of his 77 pitches in what should be his final tuneup before returning to the Rockies' starting rotation. The 27-year-old left-hander was on a decent roll before coming down with left knee inflammation in an ugly start at the end of May. There will be some matchup-to-matchup fantasy streaming appeal once he is activated. Rotoworld.com Jun 19, 7:12 am
  • Bronson Arroyo hints at retirement Sunday
    Bronson Arroyo hinted after Sunday's loss to the Dodgers that he is contemplating retirement.

    Advice: The 40-year-old right-hander has been disastrous over 14 starts for the Reds in his comeback season, compiling a 7.35 ERA and 1.59 WHIP across 71 innings. Arroyo admitted Sunday that his shoulder has been "barking" for a while now. "I think my arm is probably going to be checkmate," he said after another rough outing Sunday. It sounds like this could be the end of a 16-year MLB career. Rotoworld.com Jun 18, 5:17 pm

  • Arroyo allows five earned in loss to Dodgers
    Bronson Arroyo allowed five earned runs over three innings Sunday in a loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Arroyo struck out the side in the top of the first inning, but the Dodgers pounced for three runs in the top of the second and three more runs in the top of the third. The veteran right-hander now has a 7.35 ERA in 14 starts this season for Cincinnati. It might be time to pull the plug. Rotoworld.com Jun 18, 1:47 pm

The ace left-hander will work out in a more controlled environment instead. He is on track to return to the Giants' rotation around mid-July, though we're still pretty early in the rehab process at this point. Rotoworld.com Jun 16, 2:28 pm
