  • Hechavarria hits rare homer against Yankees
    Adeiny Hechavarria went 1-for-5 with a homer in an extra-innings win over the Yankees on Sunday.

    Advice: Hechavarria and power are not often synonymous, but the slick-fielding shortstop picked up his third blast of the year off of Domingo German in the second inning. He's been limited to just 40 games because of injuries, but he is hitting a solid .282 in that time frame. He doesn't hit for enough power or steal enough bases to have much value in mixed formats, however. Today, 2:54 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

  • Lindor homers and doubles in blowout victory
    Francisco Lindor went 3-for-5 with a double and a homer in a blowout win over the Tigers on Sunday.

    Advice: Lindor's homer gives him 19 on the season, and the double is number 24. He also scored three runs, as he was able to get on and take advantage of the strong games from Jose Ramirez and Edwin Encarnacion. The strong season continues for the young shortstop, as his slash improves to .296/.372/.558 along with 10 steals and 44 RBI. Today, 1:20 pm
  • Jesmuel Valentin goes on paternity leave
    Phillies placed INF Jesmuel Valentin on the paternity leave list.

    Advice: He'll be away for 1-3 games. Dylan Cozens has been activated from the DL to take Valentin's roster spot. Today, 12:33 pm
    Not Active
  • Tyler Saladino (ankle) nears rehab assignment
    Tyler Saladino (ankle) is making "very good progress" and is close to beginning a rehab assignment, Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Sunday.

    Advice: Saladino has been out since late May with a sprained left ankle. "He is taking big steps every day now, so we’re closing in on looking at setting a date for sending him out to rehab," Counsell said. Today, 9:58 am
    10-Day DL
  • Chris Taylor (hamstring) held out Sunday
    Chris Taylor (hamstring) remained out of the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's now missed three straight starts with a tight left hamstring. Taylor did come off the bench to deliver a two-run double Saturday, so odds are he won't miss many (if any) more starts. Enrique Hernandez is at shortstop for the third day in a row. Today, 8:33 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
  • Xander Bogaerts (finger) back in lineup Sun.
    Xander Bogaerts (finger) is back in the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Bogaerts sat out Saturday after spraining his left index finger on a slide Friday, but he's fine. He is at shortstop and batting fifth against Marco Gonzales and the Mariners. Today, 8:09 am
  • Jean Segura (arm) held out again on Sunday
    Jean Segura (arm) remained out of the Mariners' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's the fourth straight game he's missed due to an infection in his arm. The good news is that Segura will work out prior to Sunday's game and could be available off the bench. Andrew Romine is at shortstop. Today, 7:47 am
  • Amed Rosario to get a few days off
    Amed Rosario will get a few days in a row off "to work on some things," Mets manager Mickey Callaway said Sunday.

    Advice: Rosario is batting just .212/.235/.303 so far in June, so he'll get a mental break and also work on his swing in the batting cage. Jose Reyes has been swinging the bat better lately and will handle shortstop for a few days. Today, 7:46 am
  • Pat Valaika recalled from Triple-A
    Rockies recalled INF Pat Valaika from Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: Valaika has batted an ugly .120/.185/.173 in the majors this season. He'll back up all over the infield. Today, 6:14 am

  • Carlos Correa wins game for Astros
    Carlos Correa singled in George Springer in the bottom of the 12th to give the Astros a 4-3 win over the Royals on Saturday.

    Advice: Correa also had a sac fly in the contest. He's hit .290 with four homers and 11 RBI in 16 games this month, and he's very much in the driver's seat for starting at shortstop for the AL in the All-Star Game. Yesterday, 8:33 pm
  • Crawford goes 3-for-3 with three RBI Sat.
    Brandon Crawford went 3-for-3 with three RBI and a run scored in a 5-3 win over the Padres on Saturday.

    Advice: He knocked in a run with a triple in the fourth inning and was left stranded. He plated two more runs with a double in the sixth. He doubled again and scored in the eighth and also walked in the ballgame. The veteran shortstop is known mostly for his glove but has been quietly raking so far this year. He has a .313 batting average and an .866 OPS with eight homers and 35 RBI while playing half his games in the most pitcher-friendly park in the big leagues. Yesterday, 4:33 pm
  • Gregorius picks up pair of knocks in defeat
    Didi Gregorius went 2-for-4 in Saturday's loss to the Rays.

    Advice: Gregorius was the only Yankees batter to pick up multiple knocks on the afternoon. They managed just four total hits as a team while being shut out for only the second time this season. Punchless defeat aside, it's nice to see Didi back at his old tricks. He's finally thawed the ice after a frigid May, having now hit safely in eight of his last 10 games, with four multi-hit showings in that space. Overall, the shortstop is slashing .261/.331/.477 with 14 homers, 41 RBI and nine steals in 69 games. Realistically, he was never going to be able to keep up his torrid April pace, but it's a relief to see his numbers stabilizing regardless. Yesterday, 4:00 pm
  • Miguel Rojas scratched from Marlins lineup
    Miguel Rojas was scratched from the Marlins' starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Rojas was scratched due to soreness in his left hand. Derek Dietrich will start in his place and bat fifth for the Marlins against Tyler Anderson and the Rockies on Saturday. Yesterday, 10:52 am

  • Jose Peraza not in Reds lineup on Saturday
    Jose Peraza is not in the Reds' starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Cubs.

    Advice: It looks to be a routine day off for the speedy shortstop who swiped three bases in Friday's game. Alex Blandino will start in his place at shortstop and bat leadoff against Luke Farrell and the Cubs on Saturday. Yesterday, 10:00 am
  • Javier Baez not in Cubs lineup on Saturday
    Javier Baez is absent from the Cubs' starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: With no known injury issues at play, it looks to be just a regular day of rest for Baez. Ben Zobrist is starting in his place at second base and batting third for the Cubs on Saturday against the Reds. Yesterday, 8:59 am
  • Eduardo Escobar returns to Twins lineup
    As expected, Eduardo Escobar returned to the Twins' starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Rangers.

    Advice: Escobar was held out of Friday's lineup due to an elbow contusion, but did appear in the game as a pinch hitter and remain to play an inning in the field. He's starting at third base and batting third for the Twins against Yovani Gallardo and the Rangers on Saturday. Yesterday, 8:53 am
    Player Note

  • Machado slugs go-ahead homer vs. Braves
    Manny Machado slugged a go-ahead two-run homer in the 15th inning as the Orioles defeated the Braves 10-7 on Friday.

    Advice: It was a wild night in Atlanta, but Machado’s blast off Peter Moylan finally put the Orioles ahead for good. Machado went 2-for-5 on the night with two walks, two runs scored, and a stolen base. He’s been pretty quiet this month, but he still owns a quality .305/.374/.561 batting line with 19 homers and 55 RBI over 73 games. The trade chatter should continue to build in the coming days. Friday, 11:16 pm
  • Herrera has go-ahead triple for Rockies
    Rosell Herrera went 2-for-5 with a double and a go-ahead RBI triple in Monday’s 1-0 victory over the Astros.

    Advice: Not only that, Herrera robbed Alex Bregman of what would have been a go-ahead solo homer in the eighth. He then finally broke the scoreless tie with his double in the ninth. Once an exciting prospect with the Rockies, Herrera is 5-for-18 (.278) with three RBI since his promotion from Triple-A Omaha. Jorge Bonifacio is eligible to return from his PED suspension last week, so the window could be small for him to make much of a fantasy impact. Friday, 10:15 pm
