  • Holt leaves game with left hamstring injury
    Brock Holt left Thursday's game against the Blue Jays in the third inning after pulling up lame on the basepaths.

    Advice: He doubled in his first at-bat of the game and appeared to pull a hamstring between first and second base. Holt has been on fire at the plate lately but was set to return to the bench when Xander Bogaerts comes off the disabled list on Friday. Perhaps the two players will swap places now. The Red Sox will likely give an update on Holt's status later this evening. 38 minutes ago

  • Ozzie Albies homers, knocks in three runs
    Ozzie Albies homered, doubled and knocked in three runs against the Reds on Thursday.

    Advice: Albies has eight homers and 10 doubles in 104 at-bats this year after finishing with six homers and nine doubles in 217 at-bats as a rookie. He leads the NL with 66 total bases, which is simply incredible for a 21-year-old second baseman. Today, 12:51 pm
  • Corey Dickerson wins game for Pirates
    Corey Dickerson homered off Alex Wilson in the bottom of the ninth to give the Pirates a 1-0 win over the Rays on Thursday.

    Advice: Dickerson had been in a little slump of late, going eight straight games without an RBI before providing the only run in this one. It was his second homer of the year, and it pushed his OPS back up to .848. Today, 12:39 pm
  • Jose Abreu (flu) sitting Thursday vs. Royals
    Jose Abreu (flu) is out of the White Sox starting lineup on Thursday against the Royals.

    Advice: Abreu left Wednesday's game after three innings due to flu-like symptoms. Consider him day-to-day. Matt Davidson is at first base and Daniel Palka is serving as Chicago's designated hitter in Thursday night's series opener at Kansas City's Kauffman Stadium. Today, 12:21 pm
  • Indians DFA lefty Jack Leathersich
    Indians designated LHP Jack Leathersich for assignment.

    Advice: Leathersich had allowed seven runs -- six earned -- over five innings (seven appearances) this season at Triple-A Columbus. Cleveland claimed him off waivers from the Pirates at the end of spring training. Today, 11:10 am

  • Jeff Beliveau called up to Indians bullpen
    Indians purchased the contract of LHP Jeff Beliveau from Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: This is the corresponding move for setup man Andrew Miller (hamstring) being placed on the 10-day disabled list. Beliveau will be available out of the Indians' bullpen on Thursday night against the Mariners. Today, 11:00 am
  • Twins claim RP David Hale from Yankees
    Twins claimed RHP David Hale off waivers from the Yankees.

    Advice: Hale was designated for assignment by New York earlier this week despite tossing two scoreless innings of relief in his one appearance for the Yankees. The 30-year-old right-hander holds a 4.43 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, and 123/62 K/BB ratio in 180 2/3 career innings at the MLB level. Today, 10:51 am
  • Mariners option Dan Vogelbach to Tacoma
    Mariners optioned 1B Daniel Vogelbach to Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: The move opens a 25-man roster spot for Ryon Healy, who has been activated from the disabled list in a corresponding move. Vogelbach was batting just .204/.317/.352 through 63 plate appearances this season with Seattle. Today, 7:55 am
    Not Active
  • Reds option Cliff Pennington to Louisville
    Reds optioned INF Cliff Pennington to Triple-A Louisville.

    Advice: The move clears a 25-man roster spot for Eugenio Suarez, who was activated off the disabled list Thursday morning. Pennington went 4-for-29 (.138) with zero extra-base hits in four weeks with Cincinnati. Today, 7:35 am

  • Tigers recall Johnny Barbato from Toledo
    Tigers recalled RHP Johnny Barbato from Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: Barbato will join the Detroit bullpen ahead of Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Pirates. He had a sharp 1.17 ERA and nine strikeouts through 7 2/3 innings this season at the Triple-A level. Today, 7:25 am
  • Kyle Barraclough (family) away from Marlins
    Kyle Barraclough was away from the Marlins on Wednesday night due to a death in the family.

    Advice: Barraclough has not officially been placed on the bereavement list, but that might happen before Friday's series opener against the Rockies. Drew Steckenrider and Tayron Guerrero were also unavailable on Wednesday, but the Marlins still managed to beat Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers. Today, 5:39 am
  • Marcell Ozuna snaps out of his funk
    Marcell Ozuna finished 1-for-4 with a pair of RBI in Wednesday's 9-1 win against the Mets.

    Advice: Ozuna perked up facing a familiar foe, as he saw plenty of the Mets from his days with the Marlins. It wasn't all rosy, though, as he did strike out two more times. Still, he entered the day 1-for-23 over the past six outings, so the two RBI were like a drink of water after crawling through the desert for fantasy owners. Yesterday, 10:59 pm
  • Hernandez goes 3-for-4 with two runs scored
    Cesar Hernandez set the table for the Phillies by going 3-for-4 and scoring two runs in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: He doubled and scored in the first inning, then singled and scored in the third inning. He was also caught stealing in the ballgame. His sterling performance is one of the primary reasons why the Phillies have gotten off to a surprising 15-8 start this year. He has a .313/.431/.434 slash line with two homers, 10 RBI, 18 runs and five steals out of the leadoff slot. He has nearly as many walks (18) as strikeouts (22) in 102 plate appearances. Yesterday, 10:12 pm
  • Marte goes 2-for-4 in loss to Phillies Wed.
    Ketel Marte went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: The rest of his team managed only three hits combined in the ballgame. Marte needed a good game like this to gain some confidence after struggling so far this year. He has a .232 batting average with one homer and eight RBI in an even 100 plate appearances. Yesterday, 9:43 pm
  • Gregorius goes 3-for-3 with a homer vs Twins
    Didi Gregorius went 3-for-3 and swatted a home run during a 7-4 win over the Twins on Wednesday.

    Advice: He laced an RBI-single in the first inning and upped the ante with a solo homer in the third frame. Gregorius is rocking a .347 batting average and is second in the majors with nine home runs. He leads the majors with 29 RBI. The 28-year-old shortstop was formerly best known for his glove but his bat has turned the tables. Yesterday, 9:31 pm
  • Gray lets in three runs in 4 2/3 vs Twins
    Sonny Gray's struggles continued but he escaped with a no-decision after allowing three runs in 4 2/3 innings versus the Twins on Wednesday.

    Advice: Miguel Sano squared him up for a two-run homer in the first inning. Gray issued five walks and allowed six hits in the short outing. The Yankees will keep running him out there but he better round into form soon or he could be removed from the rotation before too long. He has an eye-popping 7.71 ERA and 2.14 WHIP after five starts. He's walked 16 batters in 21 innings. Yesterday, 9:17 pm
  • Matt Kemp swats two-run home run
    Matt Kemp went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 8-6 loss against the visiting Marlins.

    Advice: Kemp has cracked three homers with eight RBI over his past eight outings, and he has a chance at his fifth-career 100 RBI season if he maintains this kind of production. His career high of 126 RBI came back in 2011 in his first tour of duty with the Dodgers, the season he was runner-up in the NL MVP voting to Milwaukee's Ryan Braun. Yesterday, 9:14 pm
  • Kepler goes 3-for-5 with a run and RBI Wed.
    Max Kepler went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: He plated Joe Mauer with a single in the seventh inning but it was too little, too late for the Twins. Kepler has turned things on at the dish, slashing .308/.384/.585 with four homers and eight RBI so far this season. Yesterday, 9:09 pm
  • DIaz has three hits in win over Tigers
    Elias Diaz went 3-for-4 on Wednesday in a win over the Tigers in game two of a doubleheader.

    Advice: With the three hits, Diaz now has a .444 average to begin the year, and his .687 slugging percentage helps illustrate that the backstop is making lots of hard contact right now. He's not going to challenge Francisco Cervelli for the starting job, but if you're looking for a cheap backstop in DFS when he's in the lineup, he might be worth some consideration. Yesterday, 9:04 pm
  • Vazquez pitches scoreless ninth in win
    Felipe Vazquez pitched a scoreless ninth in the Pirates' victory over the Tigers in game two of a doubleheader on Wednesday.

    Advice: Vazquez came in with an 8-3 lead, so he didn't earn the save. He allowed one hit, but no runs scored and he struck out one. Vazquez's ERA still hasn't recovered from his disastrous opening, but it's "down" to 4.82, and he's allowed just one earned run in his last nine appearances. Yesterday, 9:01 pm
