Red Sox's Travis Shaw: Plates three runs
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/25/2016) Shaw went 2-for-4 with a double, three RBI, a run and a strikeout Wednesday against Colorado.

The 26-year-old continued his breakout season with two more hits to raise his average to .306 with a .901 OPS. It seems the hand soreness he felt a few days ago is a thing of the past now, so he should remains as a dependable option in one of the deepest lineups in the majors.

Yankees' Chase Headley: Launches third homer of season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/25/2016) Headley went 2-for-3 with a solo homer, two runs and a walk Wednesday against the Yankees.

Headley has hit a mere .219 this season, but he's hit safely in four of the last six games. The 32-year-old switch hitter seems to be improving at the plate of late, but it continues to be a disappointing season so far for the veteran.

Mariners' D.J. Peterson: Goes 3-for-4 with a homer
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/25/2016) Peterson went 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBI in Double-A Jackson's 7-0 victory over Chattanooga on Monday.

Peterson is now 8-for-16 in his last four games, accruing three runs and four RBI during that time. The 24-year-old has only played four games at the Triple-A level and will likely need to improve the .223 average he produced for Jackson last season before he returns to Triple-A again.

Angels' Jefry Marte: Goes 2-for-3 with a walk and stolen base
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/25/2016) Marte went 2-for-3 with a walk and stolen base in Triple-A Salt Lake's 7-5 victory over Memphis on Tuesday.

Marte is slowly emerging from his beginning of the year slump as he's now recorded 12 hits in his last 39 at bats and raised his average from .200 to .237 over that time. The 24-year-old -- who appeared briefly in the majors this May -- will likely remain with Triple-A Salt Lake this season unless an Angels member goes down with an injury.

Astros' J.D. Davis: Homers in win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/25/2016) Davis homered and drove in two runs in Double-A Corpus Christi's 7-4 victory over Arkansas on Tuesday.

Davis is swinging a hot bat right now as he's homered six times and driven in 14 runs in the past ten games. He's boosted his batting average from .226 to .270 during that time and is now sitting at a healthy .335 OBP. Double-A is the highest level the 23-year-old has played at thus far but if he keeps batting the way he has been lately, it likely won't be long before he finds himself moving further up in Houston's farm system.

Astros' Colin Moran: Out of lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/25/2016) Moran is not in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Orioles.

The Astros face right-hander Tyler Wilson, but the left-handed hitting Moran will take a seat on the bench in favor of Luis Valbuena. The 23-year-old rookie remains hitless with six strikeouts in 13 big league plate appearances thus far. If his hitting woes continue, he's likely to head back to Triple-A Fresno once Carlos Gomez (ribs) is ready to return.

Red Sox's Travis Shaw: Back in the lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/25/2016) Shaw (hand) is back in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rockies, Michael Silverman of the Boston Heraldreports.

Shaw was healthy enough to replace Hanley Ramirez in Tuesday's game and now appears back to full strength. The 26-year-old is having a breakout season for the Red Sox, hitting .301/.370/.524 with six home runs and 29 RBI through 45 games.

Athletics' Max Muncy: Optioned back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/25/2016) Muncy was optioned to Triple-A Nashvilleon Wednesday.

Muncy got just two starts during his stint with the A's, going 2-for-5 with a walk and a strikeout. He'll head back to Nashville for more regular playing time while Jed Lowrie will reclaim his spot on the active roster.

Angels' Kaleb Cowart: Recalled by Angels
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/25/2016) Cowart was recalled by the Angels on Wednesday.

Cowart adds another bat to the Angels' roster that can also play all four infield positions. He struggled at the big league level last season, but the 23-year-old is slashing .303/.352/.454 at Triple-A Salt Lake this season. The Angels designated Lucas Luetge for assignment in a corresponding move Wednesday.

Royals' Mike Moustakas: Remains out of lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/25/2016) Moustakas (knee) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Minnesota, and according to's Jeffrey Flanagan, he will be examined by team doctors Thursday in Kansas City.

Per Flanagan, Moustakas was able to take some swings Wednesday, but he reported some discomfort when he tried to move laterally. He'll get the day off yet again Wednesday while Chelsor Cuthbert makes another start at the hot corner, batting seventh in the order. Thursday's visit with team doctors ought to provide a clearer picture for when Moustakas can be expected to return.
