Indians' Rajai Davis: Helps keep Tribe's 13-game streak alive with homer
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/30/2016) Davis went 2-for-4 with a home run and scored twice in Thursday's 4-1 victory over the Blue Jays.

After hitting his eighth homer of the season, the center fielder added his 13th double of the year in the ninth inning. Davis put the cherry on top of June with Thursday's performance. He finished the month with a .313 average, raising his season's average to .271, its highest mark since May 5. The 11th-year veteran is rolling right now, and owners shouldn't miss this opportunity to slot him into the lineup.

Rays' Desmond Jennings: Hamstring issue not believed to be serious
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/30/2016) Jennings does not believe his left hamstring issue will cause him to miss an extended period of time, Rays beat writer Roger Mooney reports.

The speedy outfielder left Thursday's game with a tight left hamstring, but fortunately it does not sound as though it's anything serious. That said, manager Kevin Cash could opt to give Jennings the day off Friday in order to give his hamstring some additional down time. Should Jennings be held out Friday, Brandon Guyer would likely slide over to center field while Corey Dickerson or Oswaldo Arcia could draw a start in left.

Tigers' Cameron Maybin: Rips game-winning double Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/30/2016) Maybin went 3-for-4 with a double, a run and four RBI Thursday at the Rays.

Maybin capped off an eight-run ninth inning with a three-run double that broke up a 7-7 tie and provided the Tigers with the final margin of victory. He's now hit safely in each of his last six games, and he's slashing .359/.413/.428 on the year.

Dodgers' Trayce Thompson: Homes in Thursday's win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/30/2016) Thompson went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer Thursday against the Brewers.

The outfielder has seen some of his starts dwindle away since Yasiel Puig returned from the DL on June 21. It also doesn't help that Thompson hit just .195 in 87 at-bats this month, dropping his average nearly 30 points from where it sat at the end of May. The 25-year-old sophomore outfielder is still a valuable asset, but fantasy owners may want to temper expectations moving forward into the second half of the season.

Indians' Michael Brantley: Progresses to soft toss program
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/30/2016) Brantley (shoulder) has progressed to soft toss and the Indians remain optimistic that he'll be able to make an impact in the second half of the season, reports.

Brantley's working his way back and has only recently resumed swinging a bat after a cortisone shot to help alleviate biceps tendinitis so a return is hardly imminent but he appears to be trending in a positive direction.

Rays' Desmond Jennings: Leaves with hamstring tightness
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/30/2016) Jennings left Thursday's game in the third inning with left hamstring tightness.

He has been relatively luck on the injury front throughout the first half of the season, but Jennings grabbed at his hamstring after rounding first base Thursday and his status for the days ahead is uncertain. Nick Franklin, who pinch hit for Jennings in the bottom of the third, took over in right field in the top of the fourth pushing Brandon Guyer to center.

Rays' Desmond Jennings: Exits Thursday with apparent injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/30/2016) Jennings left Thursday's game against the Tigers in the third inning with an apparent leg injury, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Although Jennings was able to stay in the game initially after appearing to tweak something on his second-inning double, he was ultimately lifted prior to his second plate appearance. Nick Franklin, pinch-hitting for Jennings, drove in three runs on a bloop double. Jennings' status for Friday's game is uncertain.

Diamondbacks' Rickie Weeks: Lands on bereavement list
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/30/2016) Weeks was placed on the bereavement list Thursday.

The Diamondbacks will wait until Friday to make a corresponding move, but Weeks' placement on the bereavement list means that he'll miss a minimum of three games and a maximum of seven games. Weeks had primarily been playing against left-handed pitching, so this could result in Peter O'Brien seeing slightly more playing time when the Diamondbacks face southpaws.

Reds' Billy Hamilton: Cleared to play Thursday, will bat seventh against Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/30/2016) Hamilton (face) has been cleared to play and is in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Nationals, Mark Sheldon of reports. He'll bat seventh in the order and start in center field.

Hamilton's status was uncertain throughout the day Thursday as he had to go through MLB's concussion protocol and gain clearance to play. He suffered a face contusion in Wednesday's game, but after going through the protocol, he has been cleared to play.

Dodgers' Andrew Toles: Promoted to Triple-A this week
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/30/2016) Toles has been promoted to Triple-A after hitting .314/.363/.514 for Double-A Tulsa.

It's the second promotion of the year for Toles, who is overall batting .333/.381/.509 with five homers and 22 stolen bases. Don't rule out one more promotion at some point for the 24 year-old.
