Justin Turner draws two walks in first rehab game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Dodgers infielder Justin Turner began a minor-league rehab assignment Sunday with Class A Rancho Cucamonga. Turner served as a designated hitter and finished 1 for 2 with two walks in his first game action. Barring any setbacks, Turner could be back from the disabled list after three rehab games.

David Wright gets planned cortisone injection for shoulder


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Mets third baseman David Wright received a cortisone injection in his shoulder following Sunday's game against the Marlins. However, it was planned and Wright said his shoulder feels fine, according to the New York Daily News.

David Wright heads into All-Star break on offensive tear


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Mets third baseman David Wright heads into the All-Star break having one, if not his best run offensively this season. He is batting .375 (27 for 72) in his last 19 games after going 2 for 4 with two doubles during a 9-1 win Sunday against the Marlins.

Wright also had two RBI, two runs and one walk Sunday. He has four home runs, 10 doubles, 12 runs and 15 RBI in his last 19 games.


Reds making sure not to rush Jack Hannahan


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Reds infielder Jack Hannahan, who is working his way back from October shoulder surgery, has gone 3 for 9 (.333) with one double and one RBI in three games since beginning a rehab assignment with Class A Dayton. He has been the DH all three games.

"He's starting to do some things at first base and we're segueing probably from DH to first base and eventually to third base," Reds manager Bryan Price said, per MLB.com. "But he's doing some different throws -- like that 3-6-1 double play -- which requires a different arm angle and footwork. So every time we reintegrate something, there's typically a little more soreness afterward, as you would expect while getting into shape.

"So we're taking a step and then we're taking a day off for recovery. He felt great yesterday."

(7/13/2014) Like what you've gotten from Josh Harrison, Casey McGehee, Kurt Suzuki or Erick Aybar so far? Hoping for a rebound from Allen Craig? You might want to look into alternatives.

Hitters to target for the second half


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/13/2014) Need a sleeper for the second half? Matt Adams, Martin Prado, Manny Machado, J.J. Hardy and C.J. Cron are some of my favorites.

Todd Frazier one HR shy of tying career high


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Reds third baseman Todd Frazier clubbed his 18th home run Saturday vs. Pittsburgh, which puts him one shy of tying his career high. He produced 19 home runs in 2012 and 2013.

Saturday's home run was a three-run shot off of Charlie Morton during a five-run sixth inning for Cincinnati. The All-Star third baseman is batting .319 (15 for 47) with one home run, two doubles, four runs, five RBI and two stolen bases in 12 July games.


Justin Turner set to start rehab work Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) Dodgers infielder Justin Turner is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment Sunday with Class A Rancho Cucamonga, MLB.com reports.

He's expected to serve as a designated hitter in his first game action. Barring any setbacks, Turner could be back from the disabled list after three rehab games.

"I don't think it's a matter of [how many] games, it's just trying to get some at-bats," Turner said. "Everything feels good. I took a bunch of at-bats down there, live ABs vs. a couple of young guys down there. But it's a little bit different when you have a cage around you and taking actual ABs. So we'll see how that goes."

Chris Johnson slugs two home runs in win Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) Braves third baseman Chris Johnson went 2 for 5 with two home runs and four RBI in his team's 11-6 win over the Cubs Saturday.

Johnson hit just one home run each in April, May and June, but he was able to knock two in a single game in July before reaching the All-Star break. He tied the game 2-2 with a two-run shot in the second inning and broke a 3-3 tie with another two-run blast in the fourth. Johnson has hit .272/.294/.365 with five home runs and 33 RBI in 353 at-bats.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez homered for the second time in four games Friday, in a 6-5 loss to the Reds.

David Wright homers, collects four hits Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) Mets third baseman David Wright homered and collected four hits Friday against the Marlins.

Wright seemed to have starting pitcher Henderson Alvarez's number all night. After singling in the first and third inning, Wright stepped to the plate with a man on in the fifth. On the fourth pitch of the at-bat, Wright homered on a 90 mph fastball. He would also single in his final at-bat, giving him four hits on the day. He finished 4 for 4, with two runs scored and two RBI.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Hill has even been linked to a trade with the Blue Jays. He played for Toronto from 2005-11 before he was traded to Arizona in Aug. 2011.


Pedro Alvarez hits homer No. 14


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez went deep for the first time in eight games Tuesday, in a 5-4 loss to the Cardinals.

Alvarez had just one hit as he went 1 for 4 in the game, but he made it count. Alvarez clubbed a two-run home run in the fourth inning to open the scoring for Pittsburgh, though it was his only contribution in the loss.

Alvarez is hitting .240/.326/.412 with 14 home runs in 88 games. 


Todd Frazier agrees to participate in Home Run Derby


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Reds third baseman Todd Frazier has agreed to participate in the 2014 Home Run Derby.

Frazier will join Troy Tulowitzki, Yasiel Puig and Giancarlo Stanton in the contest. The National League will announce a fifth participant Thursday. Frazier is in the midst of a breakout season with Cincinnati. He's hitting .293/.356/.499 over 335 at-bats. He's hit 17 home runs.


Chase Headley a player to monitor


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/8/2014) You may have seen that Padres third baseman Chase Headley collected four hits in Monday's game at Colorado and thought, "That's odd." It was. But what's even odder is it came just three games after another four-hit performance. He went the first three months without even a three-hit game.

So basically, in four July games, he's 12 for 26 (.462). Again, odd, but not entirely without explanation. Headley says he changed his grip a week ago, or about the time of this turnaround (if you could even call it that) began.

"I feel like it lets me be a little shorter to the ball, gives me a little more leverage," Headley said.

Now obviously, it's a small sample, and as Al Melchior pointed out on Tuesday's Fantasy Baseball Today, Headley is still contending with a back issue that may have a greater say in his performance than any sort of mechanical change. But the Headley we saw in the first three months, the one we presumed was ruined by the back issue, didn't seem capable of a four-hit game, much less two in one week.

I'm not rushing to pick him up or anything, but I think it's worth monitoring.


Pablo Sandoval returns to action Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Giants infielder Pablo Sandoval has returned to the lineup Tuesday against the Athletics. 

Sandoval has missed a few games due to an elbow injury. Over 310 at-bats, Sandoval is hitting .261/.315/.416. He's set to hit fifth and play third. 


Jack Hannahan beginning rehab assignment


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Reds infielder Jack Hannahan has been sent out on a rehab assignment to Class A Dayton, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports Tuesday. Hannahan has been working his way back from offseason shoulder surgery, and has yet to play this season.
