Player Notes

  • Hicks drills solo home run versus White Sox
    John Hicks smacked a solo home run in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader with the White Sox.

    Advice: His shot was the only run the Tigers got against starter Derek Holland, but they added three more against the bullpen to pull out a split in the doubleheader. Hicks was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Friday to serve as the backup catcher while James McCann is on the disabled list. He is batting .371/.389/.629 with two homers and nine RBI in 36 plate appearances in the majors this year. Rotoworld.com 48 minutes ago
  • White Sox option Danish after doubleheader
    White Sox optioned RHP Tyler Danish to Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Danish was effectively wild in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader, issuing six walks over five shutout innings against the Tigers for his first career win. The 22-year-old should get another shot later this year. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:45 pm

  • Worley allows two runs over five vs. Angels
    Vance Worley allowed two runs over five innings in a loss to the Angels on Saturday.

    Advice: Worley gave up just two hits on the afternoon, but his Marlins teammates couldn't muster enough offense to keep the right-hander from suffering the loss. Still, it was a step forward from Worley's subpar debut against the Dodgers his last time out, lowering his ERA from 6.75 to 5.00. The 29-year-old will continue to search for his first win of the season Thursday when he faces the Diamondbacks. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:32 pm
  • Ramirez yields only unearned run against Fish
    J.C. Ramirez yielded only an unearned run over seven innings of work Saturday in a win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Ramirez scattered seven hits and a walk in the latest installment of what's been a wildly successful first two months for the right-hander. The win improved him to 5-3 with a 3.38 ERA and 1.16 WHIP through 12 games, including nine starts. He's provided impressive length in those nine starts, four times going seven innings and registering five quality starts. He'll get back to facing American League opponents Thursday when the Angels host the Twins. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:05 pm
  • Brad Peacock to make Memorial Day start
    Brad Peacock will start Monday against the Twins.

    Advice: For now it appears Peacock has supplanted Mike Fiers in the starting rotation. Peacock impressed in a spot start last week, holding the Orioles to one hit over 4 1/3 shutout innings. The right-hander carries a 4.31 ERA over 47 big league starts. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:58 pm
  • Conor Gillaspie (back) has MRI after setback
    Conor Gillaspie (back) underwent an MRI on Saturday after suffering a setback during his minor league rehab assignment.

    Advice: Gillaspie hasn't played since aggravating his back injury Tuesday in a rehab game for Triple-A Sacramento. His MRI results will determine the next step in his recovery process. Gillespie was only hitting .133 when he landed on the DL with back spasms earlier this month. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:53 pm
    10-Day DL
  • Eickhoff allows three runs in 5 1/3 vs Reds
    Jerad Eickhoff allowed three runs in 5 1/3 innings while taking a no-decision against the Reds on Saturday.

    Advice: He gave up a two-run blast to Zack Cozart in the first inning, then kept the Reds off the board until the sixth inning when he allowed his third and final run. He surrendered eight hits and one walk while notching four strikeouts in the contest. Eickhoff has yet to win a game through 10 starts this season. He has five losses and a 4.74 ERA with 51 strikeouts in 57 innings. His fantasy owners should see better results in wins and ERA moving forward. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:44 pm
  • Jarrett Parker hopes to return in two weeks
    Jarrett Parker (shoulder) took on-field batting practice on Saturday.

    Advice: Parker was also seen running the bases and making throws in the outfield. The Giants are hoping he'll be back in about two weeks, which is around the time he'll be eligible to come off the 60-day DL. Parker broke his collarbone running into the left field wall for a catch earlier this year. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:24 pm
    60-Day DL
  • Adam Jones out with hip and ankle injuries
    Updating an earlier report, Adam Jones is out with a left ankle injury and a sore hip.

    Advice: Jones was given the day off Saturday against the Astros and will be reevaluated on Sunday. The hip issue is nothing new as Jones missed a game with a similar injury earlier this month. His absence spells more bad news for an Orioles team in the midst of a six-game losing streak. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:15 pm

  • Update: Ben Zobrist dealing with sore wrist
    Updating an earlier report, Ben Zobrist is out with a sore wrist.

    Advice: Zobrist said he felt "something" in his first at-bat on Friday night. Rookie Ian Happ is spelling him at second base Saturday against the Dodgers but Zobrist should be available off the bench. Consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:09 pm
    Day-to-Day
  • Odorizzi allows two runs in 5 2/3 innings Sat
    Jake Odorizzi gave up two runs on seven hits and took a no-decision in Saturday's loss to the Twins.

    Advice: The first run scored on a sacrifice fly in the second inning, and the second run scored on an Eddie Rosario solo shot in the fourth frame. Odorizzi burned through a lot of pitches while walking four and fanning four, and had to be lifted from the game after throwing 118 pitches. He has a cool 3.14 ERA with 41 strikeouts and 14 walks in 48 2/3 innings spread over nine starts. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:56 pm
  • Jharel Cotton gives up three runs in loss
    Jharel Cotton surrendered three runs on two hits and three walks over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Yankees on Saturday.

    Advice: Cotton struck out five on the afternoon and also hit a batter. He loaded the bases and allowed a sacrifice fly in the first inning, but that was it on the damage until Matt Holliday clubbed a two-run homer in the sixth. It was a solid return to the rotation for Cotton who continues to have mixed league appeal and could be available on waiver wires after his recent demotion. He'll take on the Indians in Cleveland on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:26 pm
  • Orioles recall Donnie Hart from Triple-A
    Orioles recalled LHP Donnie Hart from Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: The 26-year-old southpaw has pitched decently in his time with the Orioles this season, compiling a 3.95 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 16/4 K/BB ratio across 13 2/3 innings. He will work in middle relief for the O's. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:33 pm
  • Tigers recall JaCoby Jones from Triple-A
    Tigers recalled OF JaCoby Jones from Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: Jones struggled after being named the club's Opening Day center fielder and was ultimately sent down after getting hit in the face by a pitch. He'll provide depth in center field while Andrew Romine covers for the injured Ian Kinsler at second base. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:00 am
  • Mike Pelfrey fans seven in win over Tigers
    Mike Pelfrey punched out a season-high seven batters over five innings in Friday's victory over the Tigers.

    Advice: The veteran right-hander allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits and a walk. He had struck out just 11 batters through 29 2/3 innings on the season entering play on Friday, so the strikeout explosion came out of nowhere. With this fine effort, he now owns a respectable 4.41 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season. He still isn't a recommended fantasy option for Wednesday's start against the Red Sox. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:51 pm
  • Jim Johnson bounces back for 10th save
    Jim Johnson struck out two batters in a perfect ninth inning in Friday's win in San Francisco.

    Advice: Johnson secured his 10th save of the season, rebounding from a blown save in his last appearance on Tuesday. He has allowed just three earned runs over his past 12 innings dating back to April 27. Despite an ugly 3.48 ERA for a closer he is a valuable fantasy option. When Atlanta wins they are generally going to be close games needing Johnson to finish it off. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:10 pm
  • Guerra strong in return from DL
    Junior Guerra was strong in his return from the disabled list Friday, giving up one run over 5 2/3 innings against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Out since Opening Day with a calf strain, Guerra gave up three hits and three walks in his return, with the only run scoring when Jake Lamb took him deep in the third inning. He struck out five and induced 15 swinging strikes in his 98 pitches. The 32-year-old surprised with a 2.81 ERA in 20 starts last season and while we’re not expecting a repeat, he’s capable of being a factor in mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:31 pm
  • Ramos converts fifth save of season
    A.J. Ramos needed just one pitch to covert his fifth save of the season Friday against the Angels.

    Advice: Kyle Barraclough began the ninth inning with a five-run lead, but he gave up two runs before Marlins manager Don Mattingly brought in Ramos to face Mike Trout with one on and two out. He got Trout to fly out deep to center field to end the ballgame. Ramos was coming off a couple of shaky appearances in non-save situations, but he has converted all five of his save chances this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:07 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 Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Yelich (hip) has three doubles in return
    Christian Yelich (hip) went 3-for-3 with three doubles, a walk, and two runs scored in his return to action Friday against the Angels.

    Advice: Yelich didn’t play Wednesday after leaving Tuesday’s game with right hip flexor tightness, but he should be good to go moving forward. This was his first multi-hit game since May 12. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:06 pm
