  • Ehire Adrianza SS | MIN

    Twins' Ehire Adrianza: Moves rehab to Triple-A

    Adrianza (oblique) has been transferred to Triple-A Rochester to continue his rehab assignment, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    The 27-year-old made it clear that is ready for more advanced competition, going 6-for-15 with two doubles and a stolen base in his three-game stint with High-A Fort Myers. A .220/.292/.313 career hitter at the major-league level, he will be merely a bench option for Minnesota upon his eventual return.

  • Jose Iglesias SS | DET

    Tigers' Jose Iglesias: Able to partake in baseball activities

    Iglesias (concussion) has been cleared to participate in baseball activities, Chris McCosky of the Detroit News reports.

    Iglesias was placed on the disabled list last Friday, but is on track to be activated as soon as he is eligible. Until Iglesias is back, Andrew Romine is in line to spend additional time at shortstop.

  • Orlando Arcia SS | MIL

    Brewers' Orlando Arcia: Out of lineup Tuesday

    Arcia is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Reds.

    After committing a pair of errors in Monday's win (his first two of the season), Arcia will head to the bench as Hernan Perez takes over at shortstop.

  • Jean Segura SS | SEA

    Mariners' Jean Segura: Returns to lineup

    Segura is starting at shortstop and hitting leadoff Tuesday against the Tigers, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

    Segura came off the DL on Tuesday, so it comes as no surprise that the Mariners are including him in the lineup for Tuesday night's game. Segura missed 12 games with a hamstring injury, but will look to get back on track against Jordan Zimmermann and the Tigers.

  • Isan Diaz SS | MIL

    Brewers' Isan Diaz: Sluggish start to 2017 campaign at High-A

    Diaz, 20, is hitting .217/.284/.333 with two home runs, eight RBI and one steal through 16 games with High-A Carolina.

    Diaz continues to strike out with entirely too much frequency, fanning 20 times to begin the season. Still, he is not afraid to take a walk, and has shown much more pop than expected for his size and position. The Brewers have no reason to rush him to the bigs with Orlando Arcia and Mauricio Dubon technically ahead of him in the pecking order.

  • Giants' Christian Arroyo: Expects to see regular time at third

    Arroyo -- who went 0-for-4 in his major-league debut Monday -- is expected to primarily start at third going forward, according to Alex Pavlovic of CBS Sports.

    The 21-year-old didn't record a hit in his first game with the big club, but he didn't look outclassed at the plate either, seeing 20 pitches in his four at-bats. With the Giants' offense struggling to get off the ground, Arroyo should be given a strong look at third base to see if his bat can inject some life into the team. He is a rookie, so he will likely experience some ups and downs, but he is definitely worth an add to see if he can continue the success he was having with Triple-A Sacramento this season (.446/.478/.692).

  • Jean Segura SS | SEA

    Mariners' Jean Segura: Comes off disabled list

    Segura (hamstring) was activated from the DL on Tuesday, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

    The Mariners had intended to activate Segura on Tuesday, and those plans have come to fruition. Segura didn't have his best showing during his rehab assignment at Double-A Arkansas, as he went just 1-for-11 over three games. Now that he's healthy, he'll look to continue his strong start to the season, as he was hitting .313/.353/.406 prior to landing on the disabled list.

  • Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Fills in for Pederson

    Hernandez started in center Monday, batting eighth and going 1-for-3 in a loss to the Giants.

    Hernandez -- who normally starts primarily against lefties -- got a start in place of the injured Joc Pederson (groin) against a right-hander. It appears that the 25-year-old will receive a short stint of regular playing time while Pederson heals on the disabled list. Even with a regular role, Hernandez's career .233 batting average against righties limits his value to deep and NL-only formats.

  • Rangers' Anderson Tejeda: Racking up walks, strikeouts at Low-A

    Tejeda, 18, is hitting .209/.340/.419 with two homers across 55 plate appearances with Low-A Hickory.

    The young shortstop has unsurprisingly had more difficultly in his first exposure to full-season ball, striking out in 41.8 percent of his plate appearances. While the whiffs have sunk Tejeda's batting average, he still owns a 123 wRC+ thanks to his 14.5 percent walk rate and the power he's flashed when he has been able to make contact. Tejeda still looks like one of the Rangers' most promising position prospects in the lower minors.

  • Erick Aybar SS | SD

    Padres' Erick Aybar: Notches first steal Monday

    Aybar went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Monday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    The 33-year-old has looked his age this season, slashing .169/.265/.271 in 60 plate appearances while serving as the Padres' everyday shortstop. Aybar has never been a power threat, but speed has been a big part of his fantasy game in the past. Unless he recaptures his ability to swipe bags with regularity or gets his batting average north of .250, then he won't provide much value to fantasy owners at any level.
