  • Rockies recall Carlos Estevez from AAA
    Rockies recalled RHP Carlos Estevez from Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: Estevez has a hideous 8.10 ERA in 18 relief appearances this season in the majors, but the Rockies were desperate for a fresh bullpen arm. He'll work in low-leverage spots. Rotoworld.com 29 minutes ago

    Rockies optioned RHP Jairo Diaz to Triple-A Albuquerque.

  • A's transfer Bobby Wahl to 60-day DL
    Athletics transferred RHP Bobby Wahl from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

  • Jays recall Matt Dermody from Buffalo
    Blue Jays recalled LHP Matt Dermody from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Dermody got lit up in a relief appearance with the Jays back in late April and hasn't appeared in a major league game since. He'll work in a low-leverage bullpen role. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:51 pm

  • Cardinals release 1B/OF Chad Huffman
    Cardinals released 1B/OF Chad Huffman.

    Advice: The move clears a 40-man roster spot for outfield prospect Harrison Bader, who has earned his first promotion to the major league level. Huffman, 32, is a .219/.306/.281 career hitter in MLB action. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:46 pm

  • Phils option RHP Pinto to Triple-A
    Phillies optioned RHP Ricardo Pinto to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Pinto was tagged for six runs (three earned) over 1 1/3 innings of relief Monday against the Astros. He threw 51 pitches in the process, so the Phillies sent him down to get a fresh arm for their bullpen. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:30 pm

  • Report: Cubs could have interest in Rivera
    Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that the Cubs could have interest in acquiring Rene Rivera from the Mets.

    Advice: The Cubs recently cut ties with Miguel Montero after he threw his teammates under the bus, so Rivera would give the club a veteran option to back up Willson Contreras. Victor Caratini is currently filling the backup role. Rivera, 33, is batting .245/.291/.395 with six homers and 20 RBI over 46 games this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:04 pm
  • Ziegler (back) begins rehab stint
    Brad Ziegler (back) allowed an unearned run over one inning of work Tuesday in his first minor league rehab appearance with the GCL Marlins.

    Advice: Ziegler, out for over a month with a back strain, allowed two hits and walked one while striking out a pair. The veteran reliever should rejoin the Marlins in the next few days. Ziegler owns a disappointing 6.52 ERA over 34 appearances this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:50 am
    10-Day DL
  • Brewers option RHP Woodruff to Triple-A
    Brewers activated RHP Brandon Woodruff from the 10-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Woodruff was poised to make his major league debut last month before going down with a right hamstring strain. Now that the 24-year-old is back to full health, he'll continue to serve as rotation depth in the minors. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:14 am

  • Healy (head) has RBI single in return
    Ryon Healy (head) went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in his return to action Monday against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Healy was held out of the starting lineup on Saturday and Sunday against the Mets after he was hit in the head by a bad-hop grounder during Friday's game, but he was back in there as the DH under AL rules on Monday. He should be good to go moving forward. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:28 am
  • Josh Bell posts three more hits on Monday
    Josh Bell posted a pair of singles, a double, a run scored and an RBI in Monday's game in San Francisco.

    Advice: Bell has managed at least one RBI in each of his four games on the current western road trip, totaling seven. He is also hitting for high average on the trip, going 9-for-19 (.474) with two doubles, a triple, a homer and seven RBI. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:38 am
  • Hunter Renfroe posts multi-homer game in loss
    Hunter Renfroe belted a pair of solo home runs in Monday's loss against the Mets.

    Advice: It was Renfroe's third multi-homer game of his career, and the second this season. This might have been his most impressive game of the season, as one of Renfroe's homers was a 462-foot shot that landed on the roof of the Western Metal Supply Co. Building at Petco Park in left field. It was the longest homer in the majors in 2017 with an exit velocity of 110 mph. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:12 am
  • Kenley Jansen notches 25th save
    Kenley Jansen allowed a walk with a strikeout in a hitless and scoreless ninth inning in Monday's win against Minnesota.

    Advice: The All-Star Jansen nailed down his 25th save, bouncing back from his first blown chance of the season on Sunday afternoon against Atlanta. By his lofty standards, Jansen has had two shaky outings in a row. And the fact he has thrown 34 pitches over the past two days might mean he is unavailable Tuesday should a save chance arise.

  • Jason Castro turns in multi-hit line
    Jason Castro posted a pair of doubles with an RBI in Monday's road loss against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Castro continues to see regular playing time despite the fact he is still hitting just .223. However, he is showing some signs of life with multi-hit performances in two of his past three outings. Still, he is nothing more than a No. 2 fantasy option in most AL formats.

  • Eddie Rosario posts another multi-hit game
    Eddie Rosario posted a pair of doubles, a solo home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Monday's road loss against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Rosario has rolled up two or more hits in three straight games and he is hitting a robust .369 (24-for-65) with 10 doubles, a home run and 10 RBI in the month of July while posting an outstanding .969 OPS. He has increased his average from .276 to .296 since the calendar flipped to July. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:22 am
  • Bartolo Colon holds his own vs. Dodgers
    Bartolo Colon allowed three earned runs, eight hits and no walks over five innings with two strikeouts in a no-decision Monday in a road start against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Colon threw 44 of his 64 pitches for strikes, pitching slightly better than his team debut against the Yankees last Tuesday. Still, he is 0-1 with a 7.00 ERA over two starts since signing with Minnesota. Since the Twins are in contention, it's hard to see them giving him many more chances until he shows dramatic improvement soon. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:12 am
  • Jeff Mathis has much-needed big game
    Jeff Mathis collected three singles with a walk and two runs scored over four at-bats in Monday's win against Atlanta.

    Advice: Mathis has struggled at the plate for most of the season but he has come alive recently. He has hit safely in a season-high six straight while collecting at least one hit in 11 of his past 12 outings. The veteran still doesn't play regularly enough to warrant using outside of deeper NL-only fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:54 pm
  • A.J. Pollock drives in four in Tuesday's win
    A.J. Pollock finished 3-for-5 with two doubles, a two-run home run, two runs scored and four RBI in Monday's win against the Braves.

    Advice: Pollock was a bit sluggish for several games after coming off the 10-day disabled list July 2 after battling groin and quadriceps injury. However, he has picked up the pace over the past week and a half, going 14-for-34 (.412) with five doubles, two triples, two homers and six RBI over the past nine outings.

  • Sean Rodriguez belts first homer of season
    Sean Rodriguez connected for a pinch-hit two-run home run in the top of the fifth inning in Monday's game at Arizona.

    Advice: The veteran Rodriguez debuted in mid-July, as he needed time to recover from a severe shoulder injury suffered in a car accident during the offseason. The homer was just his second hit across 15 at-bats, but perhaps it will give the utility man a little confidence going forward. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:31 pm

  • Velasquez allows four runs in three innings
    Vince Velasquez allowed four runs in three-plus innings Monday as the Phillies fell to the Astros.

    Advice: It was an ugly, stormy night for Philadelphia and Velasquez didn't help the cause. He walked three batters and gave up six hits before getting pulled after a two-hour rain delay in the top of the fourth inning. The 25-year-old right-hander fell to 2-6 with a 5.49 ERA in 12 starts this season. He just missed a large chunk of time with an elbow injury and is looking like an unreliable fantasy option for the stretch run. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:42 pm
