4/25:Talk about a surprise -- Toronto Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin is getting the start at third base for the Blue Jays on Tuesday, his first start at the position since 2013 and only the 10th time he’ll start there over his 12-year career. Infielders Chris Coghlan and Darwin Barney had been filling in for the injured Josh Donaldson (calf) at the hot corner up until now. Given the fact neither of them have done much of anything and Martin has been swinging a better bat, it’s possible the Blue Jays think their lineup is maximized with both Martin and catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia playing. It’s unclear if Martin will get more action at third moving forward, but additional position eligibility is never a bad thing. Over the last 11 days, Martin is slashing .308/.419/.538 (.958 OPS) with two home runs, seven runs scored, two RBI, and one stolen base.--John SmithSource: Baseball Press
4/25:Houston Astros outfielder George Springer will not be in the lineup when the Astros begin their series against the Indians on Tuesday, per MLB.com. Springer tweaked his hamstring running to first base and did not play on Sunday. Springer's streak of playing 205 games in a row has been snapped, and he will have to wait another day to begin a new streak. Springer is only hitting .217 this season, but he has seven homes runs, 12 runs scored and 13 runs batted in hitting leadoff for Houston this season. Springer's absence should open up a starting slot for outfielder Norichika Aoki, who has 13 hits in 40 at-bats this season. Expect Springer to return as early as Wednesday, barring any setbacks.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Houston Astros
4/25:Houston Astros starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel takes the mound Tuesday night against the Indians as one of the hottest pitchers to start the season. Keuchel is 3-0 with an 0.96 ERA, allowing only 16 hits in 28 innings pitched. Keuchel has been pounding the bottom part of the zone with his sinker and has struck out 22 on the season. He allowed only five extra-base hits and has coaxed six double plays in four starts. The top half of the Indians offense is loaded with talent, but Keuchel will be a tough matchup Tuesday.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Houston Astros
4/25:Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Felix Hernandez is off to a solid start for the Mariners and will take the ball Tuesday night against the Tigers. Through 24 innings this season, Hernandez has struck out 20 hitters and has only walked one. He has allowed 33 hits and was roughed up a bit last week against the Marlins, but Hernandez has some strong career numbers against a good portion of the sluggers in a Tigers lineup that will be without first baseman Miguel Cabrera. Hernandez is 9-3 lifetime against Detroit with a 2.48 ERA.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Seattle Mariners
4/25:Seattle Mariners shortstop Taylor Motter will move from shortstop and play third base Tuesday night against the Tigers. The move is two-fold; the Mariners will welcome back leadoff hitter Jean Segura (hamstring) at shortstop, and third baseman Kyle Seager is still nursing a hip injury. Seager's injury allows the Mariners to continue to fit Motter's bat into the lineup. Motter has had a highly productive month at the plate, hitting .255 with five home runs and 12 runs batted in. Motter has also knocked in six runs in his last four games. Motter is still worth a play in fantasy Tuesday as Seager heals up.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Seattle Mariners
4/25:Seattle Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano has a lifetime .750 batting average against Detroit's starter Jordan Zimmermann Tuesday night. Cano comes into the game batting.269 with three home runs and 14 runs batted in. He has seven total extra-base hits on the season and has scored 11 runs. Cano is an excellent play in fantasy against a pitcher who has struggled in the first month, and Cano has hit the ball hard against him.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Seattle Mariners
4/25:The Mariners offense will get a boost Wednesday, as they have activated shortstop Jean Segura (hamstring) from their 10-day disabled list, per MLB.com. Segura will return to play shortstop and bat leadoff for a Seattle team that has struggled finding production from their leadoff spot. Segura was off to a strong start with 13 hits in 32 at-bats, three stolen bases and three runs batted in. Segura should take at-bats away from shortstop Taylor Motter, who has five home runs this season.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Seattle Mariners
4/25:When New York Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud was forced to leave last Wednesday’s game against the Phillies after being hit on the wrist by Aaron Altherr’s bat, many feared for the worst given his injury history. However, d’Arnaud’s optimism proved to win out this time, as he served as a pinch-hitter the last few days and is making his return to the lineup (and behind the dish) tonight in the Mets’ series opener against the Braves. d’Arnaud was swinging the bat well prior to his right wrist contusion, slashing .244/.326/.488 (.814 OPS) accompanied by two home runs, six runs scored, and nine RBI. He’ll be a welcome presence back in the Amazins’ lineup.--John SmithSource: MetsBlog
4/25:New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes' fantasy owners can rejoice! After leaving last Thursday’s game against the Phillies with a hamstring issue -- that Cespedes described as a “shock” -- Yo will be back in the Mets lineup tonight for the first game of their series against the Braves and will bat third. Cespedes returns to a .263/.377/.632 slash line (1.008 OPS) to go along with six home runs, 12 runs scored, 10 RBI and an 11:13 walk-to-strikeout ratio. All that and his .231 BABIP sits 71 points below his career .302 figure. Cespedes was just starting to heat up prior to the injury, so hopefully that continues now that he’s healthy and ready to go. Make sure he’s in your lineup tonight.--John SmithSource: MetsBlog
4/25:Early concerns about inclement weather have come to fruition Tuesday, as the first season matchup between New York and Boston has been postponed. The two teams are still scheduled to play tomorrow. Tonight's game will be made up on July 16 as part of a doubleheader.--Michael Collins - RotoBallerSource: Jack Curry
4/25:Colorado Rockies first baseman Ian Desmond stepped into the cage and took live batting practice Monday for the first time since his left hand was fractured when it was struck by a pitch on March 12. Desmond said, “It felt pretty good, and my hand felt good, but my swing could have felt a little better.” He could've fooled those who saw him after he sent plenty of baseballs over the fence, including one that tagged a frozen yogurt shop in the left field concourse. Desmond is taking live batting practice, shagging fly balls in the outfield, fielding grounders at first base and running the bases. He'll see a hand specialist this weekend and then may be cleared to begin a rehab assignment of yet-to-be-determined length before making his Colorado debut.--Nick Mariano - RotoBallerSource: Patrick Saunders
4/25:Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim outfielder Mike Trout went 1-for-4 with a triple and a run scored in Monday's 2-1 win over the Blue Jays. The triple was his second of the year and extended his hit streak to eight games. Trout is now hitting .346 on the year with five home runs and four steals. With first baseman Albert Pujols and outfielder Kole Calhoun starting to warm up, Trout should start seeing his run-scoring and RBI opportunities increase as well. There are no complaints from Trout's fantasy owners in the early going with the 25-year-old's performance. The Angels start a three-game set against the A's next.--Andy P - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
4/25:Colorado Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon smacked a two-run homer in the seventh inning to give Colorado a lead they wouldn't lose on Monday. The blast was his sixth of the season, and he had three RBI on the night, making him 6-for-16 over his last four games with three homers, two triples and nine RBI in that span. Considering that he's tied for second place in the MLB with 10 barrels (well-struck balls), it was only a matter of time before the results started flowing for the premier Coors product. Look for him to return top-10 outfield numbers throughout 2017 with hopes that he starts hitting some singles among the extra-base hits that allow him to start stealing.--Nick Mariano - RotoBallerSource: Patrick Saunders
4/25:Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim outfielder Cameron Maybin went 1-or-2 with a walk, a steal and a run scored in the Angels' 2-1 win over the Blue Jays on Monday. The run was scored on a very good slide into the plate and proved to be the game winner, as the pitchers kept the Blue Jays scoreless for the remainder of the game. The steal was Maybin's third of the season and second in his last three games. This was one of Maybin's better games with the Angels, but his .204 batting average still leaves a lot to be desired. He has not lost much playing time to outfielder Ben Revere yet this season, but Revere is not playing well either. Maybin should only be owned in the deepest fantasy formats. Maybin and the Angels take on the A's for a three-game set next.--Andy P - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
4/25:New York Yankees outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury has seen extensive production through the first few weeks of the season with strong at-bats and regular run scoring. The veteran center fielder will return to Fenway Park tonight where he played for Boston between 2007 and 2013. He enters the series opener with a six-game hit streak and 12 hits in the past nine contests. Ellsbury is looking at extreme opportunity this evening with a career .387/.441/.839 line and four home runs in 31 at-bats against Red Sox starter Rick Porcello.--Michael Collins - RotoBallerSource: ESPN Stats & Info
