  • Owings' two-homer night leads Diamondbacks
    Chris Owings did it all Thursday, homering twice and stealing a base to help the Diamondbacks down the Padres 6-2.

    Advice: Owings hit a pair of solo jacks off batting practice fastba-- er, Padres starter Jered Weaver, popping one in the third inning before doing it again an inning later. He's now among the league leaders in RBI (19) and stolen bases (6), a testament to the kind of all-around month the 25-year-old is having. Owings is batting .325/.365/.550 with four homers and 12 runs to boot. Add him where you can. Yesterday, 9:33 pm
  • Gonzalez has two hits, homer against Indians
    Marwin Gonzalez went 2-for-3 with a home run in Thursday's loss to the Indians.

    Advice: Gonzalez went through an 0-for-16 stretch before snapping out of it with a 2-for-4 game Wednesday, and he followed it up with his fourth homer of the year and his first since April 9. After that strong first week-plus he appeared to be in line for more playing time, but the emergence of Yuli Gurriel has relegated Gonzalez to a part-time player. He can be left alone in fantasy leagues if he's not getting everyday at-bats, and even then he's best left for AL-only leagues. Yesterday, 7:11 pm

  • Gregorius expected to be activated Friday
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi expects Didi Gregorius (shoulder) to be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

    Advice: Gregorius is ready to roll after completing a five-game rehab assignment with High-A Tampa. It took him a little over a month to recover from a strained shoulder. With Gregorius taking over as the everyday shortstop, Ronald Torreyes will head back to the bench. Yesterday, 2:28 pm
    10-Day DL
  • Jose Reyes hits first homer against Braves
    Jose Reyes went 2-for-3 and hit his first homer of the year Thursday against the Braves.

    Advice: At least Reyes still has knuckleball bat speed. Anything over 80 mph has given him hits this year, but put him up against Dickey or Jered Weaver and he still has a chance. Yesterday, 1:18 pm
  • Crawford goes 1-for-4
    Phillies prospect J.P. Crawford went 1-for-4 on Wednesday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: That hit saw Crawford's average rise to .100. Yikes. There are only two positives to take away from this start: He's still drawing walks (nine in 17 games) and it's still just April. Those positives aside, this is a borderline disastrous start for one of the top prospects in baseball. Yesterday, 11:17 am

  • Red Sox claim Chase d'Arnaud from ATL
    Red Sox claimed INF Chase d'Arnaud off waivers from the Braves.

    Advice: He was designated for assignment by Atlanta on Tuesday. The 30-year-old infielder holds a weak .231/.288/.312 career batting line at the major league level. Yesterday, 10:55 am

  • Three hits for Mateo
    Yankees prospect Jorge Mateo went 3-for-5 on Wednesday for High-A Tampa.

    Advice: Mateo also scored two runs. It was a much needed quality game for the infielder, as even with the three-hit day his average still sits at .234. All of the talent is here to be a fantasy stalwart, but the application of those talents has taken a hit in the last few years. He might need a change of scenery. Yesterday, 10:51 am

  • Multi-hit game for Albies
    Braves prospect Ozzie Albies went 2-for-4 on Wednesday for Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: One of those hits was a double, and ALbies also scored two runs while picking up his eighth stolen base. The hit and speed combination continues to impress, and despite being just 20-years-old, he's still on track to reach the big leagues this summer. Yesterday, 10:07 am

  • Tigers activate Iglesias from concussion DL
    Tigers activated SS Jose Iglesias from the 7-day concussion disabled list.

    Advice: Iglesias cleared MLB's concussion protocol and will return to the shortstop position for Detroit in Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Mariners. He's batting .267/.298/.444 with one home run and two stolen bases in 13 games this season. Yesterday, 8:31 am
  • Christian Arroyo hits first homer
    Christian Arroyo hit his first big-league homer off Sergio Romo to help the Giants edge the Dodgers 4-3 in 10 innings Wednesday.

    Advice: Arroyo's homer put the Giants on the board in the seventh. Interestingly, the Giants picked Eduardo Nunez over Arroyo as the shortstop today with Brandon Crawford out. Arroyo was still playing more short that anything else in Triple-A, and he should be better there than Nunez. Arroyo did finish the game at short after Nunez moved to left field. Wednesday, 11:20 pm
  • Erick Aybar hits second homer
    Erick Aybar went 2-for-3 with a homer and a steal Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: His second hint was a bunt single that started a five-run rally in the top of the ninth. Aybar doesn't bring much to the table these days, but the Padres believe he adds stability at shortstop. He's been a fixture thus far despite hitting just .200/.293/.338. Wednesday, 11:02 pm
  • Trea Turner homers, doubles in win
    Trea Turner finished 3-for-5 with a homer, a double and three runs scored Wednesday in the Nationals' 11-4 drubbing of the Rockies.

    Advice: It seems that Turner is taking to the second spot in the Nationals' order just fine; maybe Dusty Baker should leave him there. Turner was a triple away from his second straight cycle tonight. He's 11-for-24 with seven extra-base hits and 11 RBI since coming off the disabled list. Wednesday, 10:57 pm

  • Beckham smokes two solo homers vs O's
    Tim Beckham went 3-for-5 and drilled two solo home runs but the Rays still lost to the Orioles on Wednesday.

    Advice: He homered in the third and again in the fifth to draw the Rays within a run, but they ultimately fell in extra innings. Beckham has been serving as the starting shortstop since the season began in the absence of the injured Matt Duffy. Beckham has hit well enough that there could be a position battle when Duffy returns to action. Beckham is hitting .280/.299/.493 with four homers, 10 runs scored and eight RBI in 78 plate appearances. Wednesday, 8:46 pm

  • Segura goes 3-for-6 with two runs, two RBI
    Jean Segura went 3-for-6 with two runs and two RBI in a lopsided win over the Tigers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Segura has played two games since coming off the disabled list and has gone 3-for-6 in both of them. His hamstring must be fully healed. Tonight he had an RBI-single in the second inning and an RBI-double in the seventh. Overall he is batting .364/.391/.523 with two homers, 10 runs and eight RBI in 44 at-bats. He has chipped in three steals to boot. Wednesday, 8:27 pm

  • Galvis goes 2-for-4 with a solo homer Wed.
    Freddy Galvis went 2-for-4 and hit a solo home run in a win over the Marlins on Wednesday.

    Advice: His .243 batting average is rather pedestrian but his counting stats are good enough to make him a quality fantasy starter in NL-only leagues. He has three home runs, nine runs scored and 10 RBI in 70 at-bats. He has swiped just one bag so far after stealing 17 last year. Wednesday, 7:12 pm
  • Brandon Crawford placed on bereavement list
    Giants placed SS Brandon Crawford on the bereavement list.

    Advice: Crawford left the team to attend his sister-in-law's funeral. He also suffered a strained groin on Tuesday night and is expected to undergo an MRI when he returns on Friday. If Crawford lands on the disabled list, the Giants can backdate the move to Tuesday. Wednesday, 3:29 pm

  • Arcia hits RBI double, two-run homer vs. CIN
    Orlando Arcia finished 2-for-3 with a homer and three RBI in the Brewers' defeat of the Reds on Wednesday.

    Advice: Arcia contributed an RBI double to the Brewers' five-run outburst in the bottom of the first inning before socking a two-run homer in the bottom of the third. The young shortstop got off to a slow start this season and is still batting just .229/.260/.371 in 21 games overall. We wouldn't expect a full-on breakout in 2017. Wednesday, 1:47 pm
  • Mets recall Matt Reynolds from Vegas
    Mets recalled INF/OF Matt Reynolds from Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Reynolds was batting .300/.364/.360 in 55 plate appearances this season at the Triple-A level. The versatile 26-year-old will give the Mets position player depth. Wednesday, 12:02 pm
  • MRI shows no surprises for Tulowitzki
    An MRI on Troy Tulowitzki's strained right hamstring revealed no surprises.

    Advice: The club's medical staff wanted to rule out anything major before allowing Tulowitzki to resume baseball activities. There is no specific timetable on the star shortstop's return, but this shouldn't be more than a two-week injury. Ryan Goins has been filling in at short for Toronto. Wednesday, 7:05 am
    10-Day DL
  • Jedd Gyorko collects three hits Tuesday
    Jedd Gyorko went 3-for-5 with an RBI single on Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Gyorko got the scoring going with an RBI single in the first inning, and he later added another single and a double. The veteran infielder has taken hold of the Cardinals' third base job and has also been batting cleanup of late. Tuesday, 9:11 pm
