A.J. Burnett coughed up six runs on 10 hits and a walk with five strikeouts over five innings against the Braves on Friday.

After allowing three runs or less in seven straight outings, Burnett fell off the wagon on Friday night surrendering an eight-game high six runs. He is now sitting 6-9 with a 4.08 ERA and 1.36 WHIP through 21 starts with free passes being his worst enemy up to this point (58 BB through 136.2 IP). Although he has struggled with his command up to this point, he is still a serviceable option in deep league settings when on his game, but when he is not fantasy owners better run for the hills. He will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Madison Bumgarner and the Giants on Wednesday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck

Jake Marisnick has returned to the Astros lineup on Sunday.

Marisnick is returning from a hamstring issue for the Astros. This will be a great addition for the Astros after Springer went down with an injury. Look for Marisnick to get the bulk of playing time out in Center until Springer returns. Analysis: Dillon Conklin

Derek Norris is not in the Padres lineup on Sunday.

Likely just a scheduled day off for Norris as he has done most of the catching for the Padres this season. He should be back behind the plate in the Padres next game.  Analysis: Dillon Conklin

Grerory Polanco is not in the Pirates lineup on Sunday.

Polanco will get the scheduled day off on Sunday. Nothing to worry about here as there are no injury concerns for Polanco. Analysis: Dillon Conklin

Jake Odorizzi will make his second and likely final rehab start for Class-A Charlotte on Monday.

This is a good sign for the Rays as Odorizzi is looking to come back soon for the team. If all goes as planned on Monday in his final rehab start he should be looking to join the team right around the All-Star break.  Analysis: Dillon Conklin

Justin Upton is not in the Padres lineup on Sunday.

Upton is likely just getting the day off for rest. He has hit a slow spell in the past couple of games so it is likely just to get him back on track at the plate. Look for him to be reinserted into the lineup in the Padres next game.  Analysis: Dillon Conklin

David Ortiz is starting at first base on Sunday.

This is a surprising start for Ortiz being they are playing an American League team in the Astros. Either way, expect Ortiz to hit like normal and produce for the Sox. Analysis: Dillon Conklin

Carlos Gomez is not in the Brewers lineup on Sunday.

Gomez left Saturday's game with a wrist contusion so it will be interesting to see how things turn out over the next couple of days. It seems as if he may be able to stay away from the disabled list but expect him to miss a couple of games.  Analysis: Dillon Conklin

Grady Sizemore is not in the Rays lineup on Sunday.

Since joining the Rays, Sizemore has been hitting. In seven games with the club so far, Sizemore is hitting .360 with one homer and four RBI. He will be out of the lineup on Sunday with a scheduled day off.  Analysis: Dillon Conklin

Angels and Brewers reportedly discussed a deal involving Adam Lind and Gerardo Parra in recent trade talks.

This would be a solid trade for the Angels who desperately need some hitting. Lind is having a great year in Milwaukee, hitting .295 with 13 home runs and 48 RBI. If the Angels could land a bat like his while getting a player like Parra it could go a long way for them as they try to get back into the postseason.  Analysis: Dillon Conklin

Asdrubal Cabrera is leading off for the Rays on Sunday.

Cabrera is finding himself in a larger role than expected when coming over to the Rays. On Sunday, Cabrera will be leading off for the team. Over the last seven days, he is 7-for-24 with three doubles and four RBI. If he can get going he will be an added boost to this Rays lineup.  Analysis: Dillon Conklin
