  • Andujar blasts three-run shot in loss to Rays
    Miguel Andujar went 1-for-5 with a three-run homer in a loss to the Rays on Sunday in extra innings.

    Advice: The homer gives Andujar 11 on the season, and this one briefly gave the Yankees a 3-2 lead after the blast off of Matt Andriese in the second inning. Outside of that it wasn't a strong game for the rookie third baseman, but it's tough to complain about a game featuring a homer and three RBI. He's hitting .284/.312/.484 since being called up by the Yankees, and he's driven in 35 runs over his 65 games. Today, 2:50 pm
  • Stanton reaches six times, homers in loss
    Giancarlo Stanton went 5-for-5 with a homer and two doubles in a loss to the Rays in extras on Sunday.

    Advice: He also drew a walk, so we saw the slugger on base six times in the extra-inning loss. Stanton's blast was a big one, as it was a solo shot that tied the game at 6-6 in the eighth inning off of Vidal Nuno. He now has 19 homers on the season, and the two doubles give him 15, respectively. It's not the MVP season we saw in 2017, but Stanton now has his OPS up to .852 over 74 games, and there's reason to believe that number will continue to go up as the year progresses. Today, 2:46 pm
  • Andriese allows three over three in start
    Matt Andriese allowed three runs over three innings in a no-decision against the Yankees on Sunday.

    Advice: He walked two and struck out one. Andriese pitched a clean first and third inning, but he got in trouble in the second and allowed a three-run shot to Miguel Andujar. The right-hander will take a 4.02 ERA into his next scheduled start on Saturday against the Astros. Today, 2:41 pm
  • Canha blasts homer in loss to White Sox
    Mark Canha went 1-for-2 with a homer and a walk in a loss to the White Sox on Sunday.

    Advice: Canha took Carlos Rodon deep to give him 10 on the season, and he drove in another run on a sacrifice fly in the second inning. He came into Sunday with a .303/.338/632 line against southpaws, and that line went up after today. He's reportedly seen trade talk, so don't be surprised if we see the outfielder in another uniform in the coming weeks. Today, 2:33 pm
  • Sanchez has two hits, homer in blowout win
    Yolmer Sanchez went 2-for-4 and homered in a rout of the Athletics on Sunday.

    Advice: The homer gives Sanchez five on the season, as he took Liam Hendriks deep in the sixth with no one on. It's been an inconsistent season for the 25-year-old infielder, but there have been moments -- such as Sunday -- where he's looked like a competent infielder. With a .255/.303/.411 line, however, he doesn't offer much option in all but the deepest of mixed leagues. Today, 2:28 pm
  • Moncada drives in six in rout over A's
    Yoan Moncada went 2-for-4 with a homer and six RBI in a rout of the Athletics on Sunday.

    Advice: Three of the RBI came on a homer off of Liam Hendriks, and it gives the switch-hitting infielder 10 on the season. He also drove in three runs on a bases-loaded double, which ups his RBI total to 32 in his 69 games. There has been more good than bad for Moncada in 2018, as his line still sits at a disappointing .228/.299/.408. The long-term value is still there, but he's tough to trust as a fantasy option for the remainder of the year. Today, 2:24 pm
  • Bell has two hits in loss to Diamondbacks
    Josh Bell went 2-for-4 in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

    Advice: There was very little offense in this game, and it was an especially poor effort for the Pirates in the loss to Arizona. Bell's hits raise his average to .248 on the season, and his OPS sits at .705 over 77 games. There's a long way to go, but it's been a very disappointing sophomore season for the switch-hitting first baseman. Today, 2:16 pm
  • Peralta's homer helps Diamondbacks win
    David Peralta went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer on Sunday in a 3-0 victory over the Pirates.

    Advice: There wasn't much offense to be found in this one, but Peralta gave the Diamondbacks all the runs they'd need with a two-run shot off of Trevor Williams in the first inning. It's the 15th homer of the season, and his line on the year now sits at .278/.341/.509. He doesn't get the attention of some of the other outfielders in the National League, but there haven't been many better in 2018 than Peralta. Today, 2:10 pm
  • Hernandez hits two of Dodgers’ seven HR
    Enrique Hernandez popped two of the Dodgers’ seven home runs in Sunday’s extra-innings win over the Mets.

    Advice: Hernandez went deep off of Jerry Blevins to lead off the game and Max Muncy followed with a dinger of his own. He then homered off of Chris Beck in the sixth inning and also added a third run scored after singling in the eighth. Hernandez now has a career-high 12 longballs this season over 69 games after he went deep 11 times across 140 contests last year. Today, 2:06 pm

  • Berrios fans 12 in victory over Rangers
    Jose Berrios struck out 12 hitters in seven shutout innings in a 2-0 victory over the Rangers on Sunday.

    Advice: It was a dominant effort from Berrios against the Texas lineup, as he scattered three hits and walked two hitters to go with the aforementioned 12 punchouts. The right-hander has now allowed two or fewer runs in seven of his past eight starts, and his ERA has lowered to 3.15 in the process. Simply put, there aren’t many who have more talent than Berrios, and he’s shown as much for most of the 2018 season. He’ll look to continue his strong run on Saturday when he squares off against the Cubs. Today, 1:48 pm
  • Iglesias works easy ninth for 13th save
    Raisel Iglesias worked a scoreless ninth against the Cubs on Sunday to pick up his 13th save of the season.

    Advice: The Cubs didn't exactly make Iglesias work hard on Sunday, and he needed just seven pitches -- six strikes -- to pick up the save. The scoreless clean inning lowers his ERA to 2.23, and Iglesias's WHIP also falls to 1.02 with the effort. Today, 1:08 pm
  • Dylan Cozens activated from disabled list
    Phillies activated OF Dylan Cozens from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: Cozens missed two weeks with a strained left quad. He'll get the occasional start in the corner outfield spots. Today, 12:35 pm
  • X-rays on Brandon Nimmo's hand are clean
    X-rays on Brandon Nimmo's right hand came back negative.

    Advice: Nimmo had to exit Sunday's game after being plunked by three pitches (although only two of them officially counted), but he managed to escape with merely a bruised right pinkie. Consider him day-to-day. Today, 12:13 pm
  • Hansel Robles recalled from Triple-A
    Angels recalled RHP Hansel Robles from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Robles was initially optioned after being claimed off waivers Saturday but now finds himself in the majors with his new club. He possesses swing-and-miss stuff but has always had major walk and home run issues. Today, 11:42 am
  • Clay Holmes recalled from Triple-A
    Pirates recalled RHP Clay Holmes from Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: Holmes allowed one run over two relief innings in his major league debut earlier this season. He'll give the bullpen some length. Today, 10:38 am
  • Justin Turner sitting out on Sunday
    Justin Turner is not in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Turner has struggled since returning from the disabled list and will get a breather in this one. Max Muncy is at third base. Yasmani Grandal is also sitting out, as the Dodgers have Austin Barnes at catcher. Today, 8:27 am
  • Elvis Andrus not in Sunday's lineup
    Elvis Andrus is not in the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's his first day off since he was activated from the disabled list last week. Jurickson Profar is at shortstop in Andrus' place. Today, 8:23 am
  • Jesus Aguilar not in Sunday's lineup
    Jesus Aguilar is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: The hot-hitting first baseman will take a seat while Eric Thames starts. Aguilar has already matched last year's total with his 16 home runs this season. Today, 8:15 am
  • Braden Shipley recalled from Triple-A
    Diamondbacks recalled RHP Braden Shipley from Triple-A Reno.

    Advice: Shipley has tossed three scoreless relief innings during his brief time with the big club this season. He'll operate in long relief. Today, 7:27 am
  • Marcus Stroman goes five scoreless
    Marcus Stroman blanked the Angels for five innings Saturday in his return from the disabled list.

    Advice: Stroman scattered six hits, all of which were singles, and walked just one. He struck out five and got seven outs on the ground. It was definitely an encouraging first outing back after a six-week absence due to shoulder fatigue, and he should be worth using in mixed leagues with the Tigers next on the schedule. Yesterday, 9:37 pm
