Player Notes

  • Bogaerts continues hot streak in return
    Xander Bogaerts went 2-for-4 in a win over the Nationals on Tuesday.

    Advice: The 31-year-old now has two hits in five of six games since coming off the IL and has gone 10-for-25 (.400) overall in that span. He hasn’t hit any home runs in those six games and has stolen just one base, so there remain some questions about whether the fractured shoulder will impact his power and speed, but him being in the lineup and on base often is good to see.

  • Jorge Mateo heading for MRI on left elbow
    Orioles manager Brandon Hyde told reporters Jorge Mateo (elbow) is undergoing further testing and evaluation.

    Advice: Mateo was lifted from Tuesday’s game against the Marlins with an apparent left elbow injury that he suffered during a third-inning collision with teammate Gunnar Henderson. The positive news here is that X-rays came back negative for any fractures, but he’s still headed for an MRI to determine whether he’s dealing with any structural damage. He’s tentatively day-to-day for now. There should be an additional update on his status at some point on Wednesday. Rotoworld Yesterday, 6:54 pm
  • Sitting Tuesday
    Wisely isn't in the Giants' lineup Tuesday versus the Dodgers.

    Advice: Wisely will get just his third rest day during July on Tuesday. Tyler Fitzgerald has the start at shortstop in Wisely's place and is batting seventh. Yesterday, 3:55 pm
  • Absent from lineup Tuesday
    Dubon isn't in the Astros' lineup Tuesday versus the Athletics.

    Advice: Dubon did not play in consecutive games Friday and Saturday amidst an 0-for-10 slump before going 1-for-6 over the subsequent pair of contests. The outfielder will get the day off again Tuesday with Yordan Alvarez starting in left field and Yainer Diaz slotting as the designated hitter. Victor Caratini enters the lineup in Dubon's stead as the No. 8 hitter and draws a start at catcher. Yesterday, 3:47 pm

  • Recalled from Triple-A
    The Mariners recalled Rivas from Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Advice: With J.P. Crawford (hand) headed for the injured list, Rivas will rejoin the big-league squad in order to replenish the Mariners' infield depth. The 26-year-old has gone 2-for-6 during his previous stints in the majors this season and has slashed .296/.441/.424 through 266 plate appearances in the minors. Yesterday, 3:36 pm
  • Placed on injured list
    The Mariners placed Crawford on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a right hand fracture, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Advice: Crawford suffered a hairline fracture of his right pinky finger during Monday's contest and has now officially landed on the injured list, though the expected duration of his stay on the IL remains unknown. While he's out, Dylan Moore figures to take over as Seattle's primary shortstop, and Leo Rivas will come up from Triple-A Tacoma to provide depth to the Mariners' infield group. Yesterday, 3:19 pm
  • On bench Tuesday
    Taylor isn't in the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday versus the Giants.

    Advice: Taylor went 1-for-3 with a strikeout in Monday's win over the Giants and has gone 2-for-10 to begin the second half of the season. With Taylor's right-handed bat on the bench Tuesday, Cavan Biggio will start at third base and bat eighth. Yesterday, 3:17 pm

  • Remains out of lineup

    Advice: Rojas remains day-to-day as expected Tuesday due to tightness in his right forearm.

Enrique Hernandez draws the start at shortstop and is batting ninth Tuesday. Yesterday, 3:10 pm
