    Advice: Forsythe will return as the Dodgers' fill-in third baseman on Tuesday night against the Cardinals with Justin Turner nursing a Grade 1 hamstring strain. He'll also bat leadoff.

Forsythe was batting .295/.407/.341 in 54 plate appearances with Los Angeles before landing on the disabled list April 19 with a fracture in his right big toe.

  • Brad Miller (abdomen) won't be ready Friday
    Brad Miller (abdomen) won't be ready for activation when first eligible on May 26.

    10-Day DL
  • Correa out of Astros lineup on Tuesday night
    Carlos Correa is out of the Astros' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Tigers.

    Advice: Correa is 0-for-8 with three strikeouts over his last two games. Marwin Gonzalez will play shortstop and bat fifth Tuesday versus Detroit right-hander Jordan Zimmermann. Evan Gattis is also on the bench Tuesday for Houston. Daily Slant: Correa's absence makes the Astros a slightly less appealing team target, but they still hold plenty of upside against Jordan Zimmermann. The right-hander hasn't had success against hitters from either side of the plate - he's allowing a .396 wOBA to LHs and a .389 mark to RHs, with a HR/9 rate over 2.00 against hitters from both sides. His GB% sits under 30% and he's been getting absolutely crushed by lefties to start the year with an absurdly high 39.4 Hd-Sft% (20.0 Hd-Sft% vs. RHs). Add in the fact that Zimmermann simply can't miss bats (14.0 K%) and you have a very nice recipe for under-owned upside with the Astros. Today, 1:19 pm
  • Reynolds getting the night off Tuesday
    Mark Reynolds is getting the night off Tuesday versus the Phillies.

    Advice: Ian Desmond will start at first base and bat fifth versus Philadelphia right-hander Zach Eflin. Gerardo Parra is in left field and batting sixth. Today, 12:57 pm
  • Story not in COL lineup for first game off DL
    Trevor Story is not in the Rockies' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Phillies.

    Advice: Story was activated from the disabled list Tuesday afternoon after missing two weeks with a left shoulder strain, but he's on the bench versus Philadelphia right-hander Zach Eflin. Alexi Amarista will start at shortstop and bat seventh for the visiting Rockies. Story has posted a disappointing .180/.289/.396 batting line in 33 games this season. Today, 12:56 pm
  • Bourn exercises opt-out in contract
    According to Roch Kubatko of, Michael Bourn has exercised the opt-out in his minor league contract with the Orioles.

    Advice: The Orioles now have to decide whether to add him to the major league roster. Bourn, 34, is batting just .220 (9-for-41) through 11 games with Triple-A Norfolk. He'll likely end up hitting the free agent market. Today, 12:49 pm

  • Red Sox call up prospect 1B Sam Travis

    10-Day DL
  • Baez not in Tuesday's lineup vs. Giants
    Javier Baez is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Giants.
