Player Notes

  • Guardians activate Josh Bell from paternity list
    Guardians activated 1B Josh Bell from the paternity leave list.

    Advice: Bell will return to Cleveland's lineup for Tuesday's series opener against the Red Sox following a brief absence since last Friday on paternity leave. The switch-hitting is batting .225/.329/.348 with just four homers and 26 RBI across 219 plate appearances this season in his Guardians debut. Obviously, fantasy managers are hoping dad strength enables him to tap into some additional over-the-fence pop moving forward. Today, 9:05 am
  • Taking rehab turn Tuesday
    Snead (shoulder) is expected to pitch for the Athletics' Arizona Complex League team Tuesday in what would mark his first game action since spring training, the Associated Press reports.

    Advice: The left-hander has recently checked off multiple boxes in his recovery process, with a successful live batting practice session Friday at the A's' spring training complex teeing up Tuesday's activity. Snead figures to be in store for a robust amount of rehab appearances at various affiliates before being deemed ready for activation. Today, 9:03 am
  • Giants option Bryce Johnson to Triple-A Sacramento
    Giants optioned OF Bryce Johnson to Triple-A Sacramento.

    Advice: Johnson has been sent back to the minors to make room for veteran slugger Joc Pederson to return ahead of Tuesday's contest against the Rockies. The 27-year-old speedy outfielder has batted .175 (7-for-40) with one homer and one stolen base across 25 games this season in the big leagues. Today, 9:00 am
  • Starting rehab assignment
    Hamilton (hamstring) has been sent to Triple-A Charlotte to begin a rehab assignment, Vinnie Duber of reports.

    Advice: Hamilton has been sidelined for more than a month with a strained left hamstring but is finally ready to test things out in a game setting. It's not clear how many rehab games he might require before rejoining the White Sox. Today, 8:58 am
  • Takes third loss Monday
    Moll (0-3) took the loss against the Pirates on Monday, allowing an earned run on two hits over one inning. He struck out one.

    Advice: Entrusted with preserving a 4-4 tie upon entering in the eighth, Moll wasn't quite up to the task, ultimately allowing an Andrew McCutchen sacrifice fly that would prove to be the difference in the game. The left-hander saw a five-appearance scoreless streak snapped with Monday's stumble, and although he does boast a career-high 10.0 K/9 at the moment and has yet to allow a home run through 21.2 innings, he's also carrying a career-worst 5.4 BB/9. Today, 8:51 am
  • Logs 29th steal in loss
    Ruiz went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run in a loss to the Pirates on Monday.

    Advice: Ruiz helped the Athletics to their first run of the game with his speed, as he swiped second base after getting aboard via a catcher's interference call and eventually came around to score on Ryan Noda's single. The 24-year-old has hit safely in six of his last seven games, including four straight, pushing his season average and on-base percentage to .267 and .328, respectively. Today, 8:45 am
  • Productive in Monday's loss
    Rooker went 2-for-3 with a walk and two runs in a loss to the Pirates on Monday.

    Advice: Rooker reached safely for the third time over the last four games in the narrow loss while generating his first multi-hit effort since May 20. The 28-year-old carries an impressive .263/.368/.497 slash line across 212 plate appearances, giving him his most extensive taste of success at the big-league level yet and affording him regular playing time at the corner outfield spots and designated hitter. Today, 8:40 am
  • On base four times Monday
    Noda went 2-for-3 with an RBI single, a double, two walks and a run in a loss to the Pirates on Monday.

    Advice: The Athletics took their 50th loss of the season, but not much more could have been asked of Noda, who reached safely for the fifth straight game. The 27-year-old has a .403 on-base percentage for the season across 201 plate appearances and now carries an astronomical 19.4 percent walk rate, albeit alongside a 33.8 percent strikeout rate. Today, 8:33 am
  • Next rehab outing coming Wednesday
    White (shoulder) is scheduled to make his next rehab appearance with Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: White has resided on the Blue Jays' injured list all season while recovering from shoulder trouble and is now in the midst of his second rehab assignment. When he began the initial rehab assignment April 26, White appeared to be building up for a starting role, as he logged no fewer than 2.1 innings in any of his six outings before his 30-day rehab window closed May 27. He was able to restart the assignment last Thursday but has made 1.1-inning and one-inning appearances for Buffalo thus far, with his usage suggesting that the Blue Jays are now preparing for him to work out of the bullpen once he's activated. White has no minor-league options remaining, so the Blue Jays don't have the luxury of having him stay on a starter's schedule in the minors when he's brought back from the IL. Today, 8:31 am
