  • Dilson Herrera likely done for season
    Delino DeShields, the manager for the Reds' Triple-A affiliate, told Jason Linden of Red Leg Nation that Dilson Herrera (shoulder) is "probably done for the season."

    Advice: The Reds have yet to make an official announcement on his status. Acquired from the Mets in the Jay Bruce deal, Herrera has dealt with a shoulder issue dating back to spring training and owns an underwhelming .264/.312/.397 batting line over 68 games in Triple-A this year.

  • Calhoun homers
    Dodgers prospect Willie Calhoun hit his 22nd homer of the season for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday.

    Advice: It was Calhoun's only hit of the day, but any game that features a homer is a pretty good one. He's been the subject of several trade rumors, and with Clayton Kershaw and Brandon McCarthy hitting the disabled list, those trade rumors are likely to pick up. As a second baseman who can hit for average and power, he should be able to headline a package, and you can understand why the Dodgers are hesitant to move him. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:22 am

  • Mariners option Taylor Motter to Triple-A
    Mariners optioned INF/OF Taylor Motter to Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: The move should clear a spot for Danny Espinosa's arrival. Motter started the season hot, but he's been a non-factor for the past couple of months. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:39 am

    Advice: Walker went 2-for-7 during his brief rehab stint and appears on track to be activated when the Mets open a series in San Diego on Monday. The veteran second baseman has been sidelined since mid-June with a partial tear of his left hamstring. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:28 am

    Wilmer Difo went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Difo finished off the game's scoring with his solo home run in the seventh inning. That shot made the score 6-2 and the Nationals would hang on without issue to the end of the game. In 136 at-bats this season, the 25-year-old infielder is hitting an uninspiring .257/.331/.338 with two homers and 11 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:49 pm

The veteran second baseman is hitting .292/.336/.446 with eight homers, 36 RBI and seven steals across 332 at-bats. With his two-bagger on Sunday, Phillips bumped an ongoing hitting streak up to seven games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:12 pm
  • Josh Harrison picks up three hits in defeat
    Josh Harrison went 3-for-5 with a double and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: Harrison has now cracked doubles in three of his last five games. This was his second three-hit showing in that space, to boot. For the campaign as a whole, the second baseman is slashing .277/.355/.432 with 11 homers, 32 RBI, 46 runs and 10 steals scored over the course of 361 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:57 pm

  • Mariners sign Danny Espinosa to minors deal
    Mariners signed INF Danny Espinosa to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Espinosa was released by the Angels earlier in the week. He hit a horrifying .162/.237/.276 with six homers and 29 RBI in 228 at-bats with the Halos. At this point, he's nothing more than minor league infield depth for the Mariners. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:13 pm

    Advice: Merrifield started a trio of back-to-back-to-back solo homers off of Derek Holland in the fourth inning, then hit a game-tying solo blast in the eighth inning.

    Advice: Altuve hit a game-tying three-run blast in the top of the third inning off O's starter Dylan Bundy and he also added three singles, but Houston ultimately fell 9-7 in the matinee at Camden Yards. The star second baseman is slashing .358/.424/.564 with 15 home runs, 56 RBI, 21 stolen bases, and 68 runs scored in 95 games this year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:45 pm

    Jonathan Villar drove in two runs and stole his 19th base of the season on Sunday against the Phillies.

    Advice: Villar's two-run single in the top of the fifth inning tied the game at 2-2, but Milwaukee went on to lose this one 6-3. The 26-year-old speedster is batting just .223/.285/.348 in 82 total games this season, after finishing with a .285/.369/.457 slash line and a league-leading 62 steals in 2016.

    Advice: Gordon also stole two bases on Saturday. He's batting just .290/.333/.347 in 94 games this season, but the speed numbers have been plenty useful for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:25 pm

    Blue Jays acquired INF/OF Rob Refsnyder from the Yankees in exchange for 1B Ryan McBroom.

    Advice: Refsnyder will head to Triple-A Buffalo for now. The 26-year-old sports an underwhelming .241/.312/.332 batting line over 262 plate appearances at the big league level, but he's hit well consistently in the minors and offers versatility. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:49 am

  • Chris Taylor comes off bench and shines
    Chris Taylor finished 2-for-2 with a solo home run and three RBI in Saturday's home victory against Atlanta.

    Advice: Taylor came on as part of a double switch in the seventh inning despite the fact he has been tearing the cover off the ball. Trayce Thompson started and struggled again, so don't look for Taylor's playing time to be curtailed much. Taylor is now hitting .429 (27-for-63) with six doubles, three triples, three homers and 10 RBI across 16 games with a 1.208 OPS. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:28 am

    Johan Camargo posted a pair of doubles with a run scored across four at-bats in Saturday's road loss against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Camargo is getting a chance to play regularly and he is making the most of his opportunity. He has back-to-back multi-hit efforts, and two or more hits in eight of his past 12 outings to raise his average from .273 to .324 dating back to July 4. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:12 am

  • Gordon goes 2-for-5 with two stolen bases Sat
    Dee Gordon went 2-for-5 with two stolen bases and a run scored in a win over the Reds on Saturday.

    Advice: He singled leading off the game, then stole second and third bases before scoring on a Giancarlo Stanton ground-out. For the season Gordon is batting .290/.334/.348 with zero home runs, 19 RBI and 58 runs scored. His 34 stolen bases trail only Billy Hamilton and Trea Turner in the majors. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:35 pm
  • Gennett goes 2-for-4 with an RBI vs Marlins
    Scooter Gennett went 2-for-4 with an RBI as his club fell to the Marlins on Saturday.

    Advice: His eighth-inning RBI single drew the Reds within a run but they weren't able to score again. Gennett has been marvelously productive as a super-utility player this season, batting .311/.362/.584 with 16 home runs and 55 RBI in just 238 at-bats. Earlier this week the club announced he would become the starting second baseman moving forward, sending Jose Peraza to the bench. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:20 pm
  • Gonzalez crushes pinch-hit three-run bomb
    Marwin Gonzalez blasted a pinch-hit, three-run bomb in an 8-4 win over the Orioles on Saturday.

    Advice: He came in to replace Colin Moran in the middle of an at-bat after the young third baseman took a foul ball to the eye and had to be carted off the field in the sixth inning. Gonzalez promptly launched a three-run tater to put his club in the lead to stay. He added a double in his second at-bat. The veteran infielder has been one of the biggest surprises in the game this year. He offers multi-position eligibility in fantasy leagues and is slashing .316/.394/.593 with 18 homers and 58 RBI in 79 games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:58 pm

  • Flores caps Mets comeback with walk-off homer
    Wilmer Flores hit a walk-off, solo home run in the ninth inning Saturday to complete the Mets' comeback in a 6-5 win over the Athletics.

    Advice: The Mets once trailed 5-0 in the game, but they battled against A's starter Sean Manaea to close the gap and got to the Athletics' bullpen late. That included Flores, who deposited a Simon Castro fastball into the left field seats to send the fans home happy. Flores finished 2-for-5 with a double and two runs scored in the game. The 25-year-old infielder doesn't have a permanent home but has been serviceable when called upon, batting .284/.312/.473 in 222 at-bats this year. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:23 pm

  • Merrifield has walk-off sac fly
    Whit Merrifield delivered a walk-off sacrifice fly in the 10th inning as part of Friday’s 7-6 victory over the White Sox.

    Advice: The game-winner was set up after Tyler Clippard walked Jorge Bonifacio to load the bases. Merrifield drove in three runs on the day, including a two-run double. He also swiped a base, which gives him 16 steals overall. Locked in as the Royals’ primary leadoff hitter, the 28-year-old is a useful and versatile option in deeper mixed fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:08 pm
  • Gennett doubles, walks against Marlins
    Scooter Gennett went 1-for-3 with a double and a walk in Friday’s loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: The Reds managed just four hits on the night, with the lone run scoring on a sacrifice fly from Billy Hamilton in the third inning. Gennett started at second base on Friday and should be locked in there if the Reds end up trading All-Star shortstop Zack Cozart this month. Jose Peraza would simply slide over to shortstop. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:20 pm
  • Brandon Phillips (hamstring) sits on Friday
    Brandon Phillips (hamstring) is not in the Braves starting lineup on Friday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Phillips is still a little sore after leaving Thursday's game with a tight right hamstring. He is available off the bench as a pinch hitter though. Look for him to return to the lineup on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:56 pm
  • Dilson Herrera having shoulder examined
    Dilson Herrera will have his nagging right shoulder issue examined next week.

    Advice: Herrera has had a shoulder problem dating back to spring training, and more recently the Reds are getting worried that the injury could be serious. It seems to have affected him at the plate, as he's hit a disappointing .264/.312/.397 at Triple-A Louisville. We'll obviously find out more about Herrera's status after he's examined.

  • Brandon Phillips exits with hamstring injury
    Brandon Phillips left Thursday's game against the Dodgers with right hamstring tightness.

    Advice: Johan Camargo replaced Phillips at second base with Dansby Swanson taking Camargo's place at shortstop. Phillips went 1-for-3 with a triple before exiting in the sixth inning. The 36-year-old seems to get hurt all the time but his injuries are always minor. Consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:24 pm
  • Merrifield hits eighth homer against Tigers
    Whit Merrifield went 2-for-6 with a home run and two runs scored in Thursday's lopsided win over the Tigers.

    Advice: Merrifield socked a solo homer in the sixth inning, his eighth home run of the year. The 28-year-old has been on a tear during a seven-game hitting streak, going 11-for-30 with six extra-base hits during that time. On the year, Merrifield is hitting a healthy .290/.330/.468 with those eight homers, 35 RBI, 37 runs scored and 15 steals. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:58 pm
  • Logan Forsythe absent from Dodgers lineup
    Logan Forsythe is not in the Dodgers' lineup Thursday against the Braves.

    Advice: He's getting a maintenance day. Forsythe has struggled since the All-Star break, batting just .188 over 16 at-bats. Chase Utley will fill in at second and bat leadoff against Braves right-hander Mike Foltynewicz. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:35 pm
  • Angels officially release Danny Espinosa
    Angels released 2B Danny Espinosa.

    Advice: Espinosa cleared waivers after being designated for assignment on Sunday. The 30-year-old hasn't hit a lick this year, batting an ugly .162 with 91 strikeouts in 228 at-bats. He'll resurface at some point but will probably have to settle for a minor league deal. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:13 pm

  • Jonathan Villar goes 2-for-5
    Jonathan Villar, who didn't start Tuesday or Wednesday, went 2-for-5 as the Brewers' leadoff man Thursday.

    Advice: Unfortunately, he was caught stealing on his steal attempt. Villar is hitting .250 with a .286 OBP in 72 at-bats since coming off the disabled list last month. It looked like he'd reclaim that starting job at second base when he played well in his first few games back, but he's just treading water now. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:11 pm
  • Wilmer Flores homers in Mets' comeback
    Wilmer Flores delivered a pinch-hit homer in the eighth inning Thursday as part of the Mets' 3-2 win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Flores' homer tied the game off Brett Cecil. The Mets went on to win it in the ninth when Jose Reyes was credited with a game-ending infield single after Trevor Rosenthal failed to cover first base. Flores was on the bench today for the sixth time in seven games since the second half started. The Mets prefer T.J. Rivera at third base at the moment. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:39 pm

Refsnyder holds a poor .241/.312/.332 career batting line in 94 games at the major league level, but he was a well-regarded prospect not long ago and should find interest from other teams on the waiver wire.

  • Johan Camargo records multi-hit game
    Johan Camargo finished with a pair of singles across four at-bats in Tuesday's loss against the Cubs.

    Advice: The two knocks were nice, but Camargo was also charged with an error for booting a ground ball in the field. Still, his .328 average is really nice and that's what scores fantasy points. He has recorded six multi-hit games over his past 10 outings. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:51 am

    Josh Harrison hit a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Harrison went deep off Brewers starter Junior Guerra in the sixth inning to tie the game. It was his only hit in four at-bats. The All-Star has had a rough go of it in the handful of games since the break, going 2-for-17, but he's still hitting .272/.352/.429 with 11 homers and 10 steals on the year.

The infielder is in the midst of an eight-game hitting streak in which he's 14-for-31 with five doubles, three RBI and six runs scored. The hot stretch has Carpenter's overall line up to a more respectable .253/.386/.461 after a subpar first half. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:18 pm

    Advice: Gordon finished 3-for-6 with a run scored and the big 10th-inning base hit that easily scored J.T. Realmuto from third base. The 29-year-old speedster is batting just .294/.339/.355 with zero home runs in 89 games this season, though he has stolen 32 bases and scored 56 runs. Gordon is now up to 19 RBI.

  • Harrison back in Monday's lineup
    Josh Harrison is back in Monday's lineup against the Brewers.

    Advice: Harrison got a bit of a breather on Sunday. He'll hit leadoff Monday against Brewers lefty Brent Suter.Daily Slant: Harrison sets up as one of the premier value plays for tonight's slate against Brent Suter and the Brewers. Not only will Harrison find himself in the leadoff spot, but he actually owns some solid power numbers against southpaws to date. Coming into tonight, Harrison is sitting on a healthy .217 ISO vs. LHP on top of a 135 wRC+. Neither offense in this game sets up as a top stack, but the RH bats on the Pirates side are squarely in play, as are the lefties on the Milwaukee side. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:35 pm
  • Jonathan Villar swipes bag, fans three times
    Jonathan Villar went 1-for-4 with three strikeouts and a steal in Sunday's loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: Not the best of days at the office for Villar, though he did come up with his 17th steal of the season in the contest. He does not figure to approach the operatic high that were his 62 steals last season, but remains an ever-constant threat for theft when he reaches base. That does happen on occasion, but the speedy second baseman is hitting just .221/.287/.351 in 276 at-bats this season. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 2:52 pm
  • Gennett drives in three in loss to Nationals
    Scooter Gennett went 2-for-5 with three RBI in the Reds' loss to the Nationals on Sunday.

    Advice: Gennett drove in a run on a groundout in the bottom of the third inning and he added RBI singles in the fifth and seventh, but Cincinnati ultimately fell 14-4. The 27-year-old second baseman continues to surprise, now with a .312/.364/.606 batting line and 54 RBI in 75 games. He has already reached a new career-high in homers with 16.

He has picked up multiple hits in seven of his last 10 games. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 2:04 pm
  • Danny Espinosa designated for assignment
    Angels designated 2B Danny Espinosa for assignment.

    Advice: Espinosa has played his usual terrific defense this season, but it wasn't enough to make up for a hideous .162/.237/.276 batting line. The Angels appear poised to roll with Nick Franklin as their regular second baseman, with Cliff Pennington sprinkled in. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 9:33 am

  • Gennett homers, drives in four against Nats
    Scooter Gennett homered and drove in four runs in a loss to the Nationals on Saturday.

    Advice: Gennett and the Reds had no answers for Nationals starter Max Scherzer, but the club pounded out seven runs against a beleaguered Nats bullpen. That included Gennett's three-run homer in the ninth inning, his 16th of the year. That's already a career-best for the 27-year-old, who has found new life in Cincinnati after being cast off by the Brewers. Gennett is batting a robust .310/.364/.610 in 74 games overall this year.

    Advice: Dozier set a new franchise record with his 21st career leadoff home run in this one.
