  • Worley saddled with no-decision vs Indians
    Vance Worley took a no-decision in Sunday's win over the Indians, allowing two runs on five hits over seven innings.

    Advice: Worley struck out three and walked three on the afternoon. Both runs on his line scored in the fourth, with Tyler Naquin burning him for an RBI double and Roberto Perez lofting a sacrifice fly. While the 28-year-old right-hander's 1.35 WHIP is cause for some concern, his 3.09 ERA looks shiny enough. A difficult road showdown with the Blue Jays shows next on his schedule.

  • Steinbrenner hasn't OK'd selling just yet
    Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner "has not given authorization to sell top guys" yet.

    Advice: The Aroldis Chapman rumors have been swirling, but it doesn't appear Steinbrenner is ready to give up on the season just yet with the Yanks having won six of their last eight games to pull within shouting distance of a Wild Card spot. Ultimately, it would be hard to see the Bombers not selling, but perhaps it will depend on how they play this week. The Nationals, Cubs and Indians look like the three favorites to land Chapman.

  • Giolito allows four runs, Nats fall to Padres
    Lucas Giolito allowed four runs -- two earned -- over 3 1/3 innings Sunday in the Nationals' loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Giolito escaped with a no-decision because the Padres didn't grab the lead for good until the top of the ninth inning, when they plated four runs against Nationals closer Jonathan Papelbon. Giolito walked three and gave up four hits while recording zero strikeouts. He might be headed right back to the minor leagues with Joe Ross (shoulder) making swift progress in his rehab.

  • Report: Indians have best offer for Chapman
    Bruce Levine of WSCR-AM and 670thescore.com reports that the Indians "have the best names on the table" for Aroldis Chapman.

    Advice: Previous reports have had both the Nationals and Cubs out in front in the sweepstakes for Chapman. There's also been a "mystery team" floated. In other words, welcome to the trade deadline. The Indians already have a capable closer in Cody Allen, but adding Chapman would bolster their bullpen for a possible playoff run.

  • Glasnow might have been hurt before start
    Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Sunday that Tyler Glasnow's shoulder might have been bothering him before his start on Saturday.

    Advice: Glasnow was pulled in the third inning against the Phillies. The good news is that Huntington thinks the injury was caught before it got too bad, although the GM noted that Glasnow should've alerted the staff sooner that he wasn't 100 percent. Glasnow hasn't undergone any tests and it doesn't appear at this point that he will, so he might not be sidelined for terribly long. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:46 am

  • White Sox suspend Chris Sale for five games
    The White Sox have suspended Chris Sale five games for his conduct in a clubhouse incident prior to Saturday's game.

    Advice: Sale cut up some throwback uniforms with a knife after getting into a heated argument with the front office about not wanting to wear the uniforms Saturday. The left-hander is tentatively slated to rejoin the White Sox' rotation on Thursday against the Cubs. General manager Rick Hahn said that the incident won't affect the club's decision on whether to trade the lefty or not, although that could just be GM speak. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:57 am

  • Cubs push past Nats as leaders for Chapman?
    Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Nationals "are trailing at least three other teams" in the pursuit of Aroldis Chapman.

    Advice: It's a notable change, as they had been viewed as the favorite. It was Heyman who previously reported that the Yankees wanted Joe Ross but the Nats weren't willing to part with him, so perhaps that could be a deal killer between the two teams. Heyman backs up FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal's previous report about the Cubs possibly jumping into the lead for Chapman, as he says they're "pushing hard" for the reliever. The Indians and Giants are in on Chapman, as well, although Alex Pavlovic of CSNBayArea.com hears that the Giants "aren't in the final mix" for the reliever. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:13 am
  • Chris Sale won't be at ballpark Sunday
    MLB.com's Scott Merkin reports that Chris Sale is not expected to be at the ballpark on Sunday.

    Advice: Sale was scratched from Saturday's start and sent home after a run-in with the front office regarding throwback uniforms that he didn't want to wear. The White Sox have listed him as the scheduled starter on Thursday against the Cubs, although that could be tentative. Sale has also been mentioned as a trade candidate. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:22 am

  • Cubs 'strong in mix' for Aroldis Chapman
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Cubs are "strong in mix" for Aroldis Chapman.

    Advice: The Nationals have been perceived as the favorites to land Chapman and they still might be, but the Cubs appear to be a threat. Rosenthal adds that there are "at least two other clubs involved" for Chapman in addition to the Cubs, noting that Giants, Dodgers and Indians in addition to the aforementioned Nats have been connected to the reliever.

  • Neil Walker not in Sunday's lineup
    Neil Walker is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

    Zack Cozart is absent from the Reds' lineup Sunday.

  • Lucas Giolito recalled for Sunday's start
    Nationals recalled RHP Lucas Giolito from Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: Giolito will rejoin the Nats' rotation on Sunday against the Padres. He's been up and down in his two starts with the big club and probably isn't guaranteed anything beyond Sunday with Joe Ross (shoulder) due back soon. However, Giolito certainly makes for an interesting streaming option against San Diego. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:47 am

  • Blue Jays designate Storen for assignment
    Blue Jays designated RHP Drew Storen for assignment.

    Advice: What a disaster of a season it's been for Storen, who has posted a 6.21 ERA over 38 appearances with the Jays. His velocity has also been down a bit, although he's struck out a batter per inning. Storen will almost surely clear waivers given his $8.375 million salary, although it's possible the Jays will be able to work out a trade. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:42 am

  • Glasnow (shoulder) placed on disabled list
    Pirates placed RHP Tyler Glasnow on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder injury.

    Advice: Glasnow departed Saturday's start against the Phillies with a sore shoulder. It's unclear at this point whether he might be dealing with any structural issues, but obviously the Pirates don't want to take any chances here. The club could offer more on a potential timetable for Glasnow later Sunday. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:32 am

  • Nationals could be favorite to land Chapman
    Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Nationals "could be a favorite" to land Aroldis Chapman.

    Advice: FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported Saturday that the Yankees are telling teams they are close to dealing Chapman and Heyman says the reliever is the Nats' main target at the trade deadline. It appears that something could get done soon, although Heyman notes that the Yanks are targeting Joe Ross in a deal but the Nats are "disinclined to trade him." Rotoworld.com Today, 6:47 am
  • Ventura won't say when Sale will start again
    White Sox manager Robin Ventura on Saturday wouldn't say when Chris Sale would make his next start.

    Advice: Sale was scratched from Saturday's start and sent home after a dust-up with the front office regarding throwback uniforms that he didn't want to wear. "I'll talk about the game, but any of that stuff, we'll wait on that," Ventura said. "I'm not going to discuss what went on in there. But (it's) unfortunate he didn't start tonight. Proud of the guys who filled in." Jose Quintana will start as scheduled on Sunday. Miguel Gonzalez is currently slated to take the ball Monday, although that seems like a spot Sale could easily slide into, assuming he and the front office work out their issues. The left-hander might be traded prior to the deadline. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:33 am

    Ezequiel Carrera (Achilles) went 0-for-5 at the plate in his return to the lineup Saturday.

  • Margot to replace Upton on Padres' roster?
    Padres outfield prospect Manuel Margot was pulled from a game at Triple-A El Paso in the fourth inning Saturday.

    Advice: Margot was spotted in the dugout and he isn't believed to be injured. The speculation is that he could be headed to the Padres to replace Melvin Upton, who appears likely to be traded at any moment. Margot is a top-50 prospect who's batting .306/.356/.434 with four homers and 24 steals for El Paso. He's worth a speculative add in mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:31 am

  • Wisler gives up six runs at Coors Field
    Matt Wisler took a beating at Coors Field on Saturday, giving up six runs in 5 1/3 innings and earning his 10th loss of the season.

    Advice: Good things rarely happen for pitchers in Denver and today was no exception. Wisler allowed seven baserunners and six of them scored. He gave up five hits and two walks while fanning three. The bad game lowers his record to 4-10 with a 4.92 ERA. As a mediocre pitcher on a team that rarely gives him much run support, Wisler is only an option for desperate fantasy owners. On the other hand, he is only 23 years old and is holding his own in the major leagues already, so maybe he will be a good fantasy pitcher in a few years. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:00 pm
  • NYY close to Chapman trade; keeping Miller
    According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Yankees are telling teams that they are close to trading Aroldis Chapman.

    Advice: They're also telling teams that they intend to keep Andrew Miller. Chapman has been his usual dominant self this season with New York, boasting a 2.01 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, and 44/8 K/BB ratio in 31 1/3 innings. The 28-year-old impending free agent is averaging 100 mph with his fastball. There is believed to be interest from the Cubs, Nationals, and Giants. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:36 pm
  • Sale sent home for cutting up throwback uni
    Tommy Stokke of FanRag Sports reports Chris Sale was sent home from U.S. Cellular Field on Saturday after cutting up throwback jerseys that he did not want to wear.

    Advice: This story takes another fascinating turn. Via FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal: "Sale asked that they not wear (throwbacks) on his day because they are uncomfortable. Things escalated when they wouldn't relent." Sale went after the jerseys with a knife during pregame batting practice, and then apparently exchanged some words with members of the White Sox front office for putting merchandise sales ahead of winning. He could be traded before the August 1 deadline, though that wouldn't really have anything to do with this odd incident. Matt Albers is starting in Sale's place on Saturday night against the Tigers.

    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick hears the Chris Sale clubhouse incident was with front office staff.

    Advice: Crasnick says the incident began with something "silly" and blew up into a bigger argument. It did not get physical, per a press release from the club, but the words exchanged were serious enough to cause the White Sox to scratch their ace from his scheduled start Saturday night against the Tigers. Matt Albers is going to take the mound instead versus Detroit. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:24 pm

    According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, the White Sox are talking to teams about Chris Sale.

    Advice: That's not exactly breaking news -- trade rumors have swirled around Sale for weeks -- but Passan's report is relevant because those discussions are ongoing even after the ace left-hander was scratched from his scheduled start Saturday against the Tigers because of a pregame clubhouse incident. We don't have any details about that incident, only that it was non-physical and did not cause an injury. This could be a very busy night for Sale's Rotoworld profile.

  • Giolito returning to start Sunday vs. Padres
    Lucas Giolito will return to the majors to start Sunday at home against the Padres.

    Advice: It's a nice matchup for a talented pitcher, but it will likely be a spot start with Joe Ross (shoulder) nearing his return. Giolito allowed four earned runs in 7 2/3 innings (two starts) three weeks ago with Washington. Those were his first two MLB outings. Maybe he can force the Nationals to keep him on the major league roster if he dominates on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:33 pm

  • Chapman notches 20th save of season
    Aroldis Chapman threw a scoreless ninth inning Friday against the Giants to convert his 20th save of the season.

    Advice: After the Yankees took the lead in the bottom of the eighth inning on Brandon Crawford’s third error of the game, Chapman allowed a leadoff double to Gregor Blanco to begin the ninth inning before retiring the next three batters he faced. He averaged 103 mph with his fastball and reached 104 mph with seven out of his 17 pitches. It goes without saying that he’d have a ton of value if the Yankees decide to sell before August 1, but their recent winning ways could complicate matters. As for the Giants, they have now lost six straight. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:21 pm
  • Tyler Glasnow to start for Pirates Saturday
    Pirates manager Clint Hurdle confirmed Friday that Tyler Glasnow will start on Saturday against the Phillies.

Heyman says that the White Sox "are contemplating a serious sale," but it's unclear at this point whether they'll move Sale or Jose Quintana.

    Advice: Glasnow had been listed as Triple-A Indianapolis' starter for that day, but now Chad Kuhl is listed in that spot.

    Advice: Morosi notes that Cubs president Theo Epstein drafted Reddick in Boston back in 2006. It's been a frustrating 2016 for the 29-year-old outfielder, who missed part of May and most of June with a fractured thumb, but he has been a productive hitter when healthy for going on five years and he's only owed about $3 million on his current contract.

Darwin Barney is starting in left field and Junior Lake is starting in right field Wednesday in Arizona.Daily Slant: With Carrera out of the lineup, it'll be Darwin Barney leading off against Patrick Corbin with Devon Travis hitting in the 8th spot. Barney's numbers certainly don't jump off the table, but hitting atop of a very potent Toronto order in a hitter-friendly environment makes him a viable punt play.

  • Reddick hits cue shot walkoff single vs HOU
    Josh Reddick hit a walk-off, opposite-field RBI single to beat the Astros in the 10th inning of Tuesday night's 4-3 victory.

    Advice: Reddick didn't exactly scald the walk-off winner against Tony Sipp, but as the old adage goes, he just needed to hit it where they ain't. In this case, the Astros employed the shift when Reddick stepped to the plate. He proceeded to hit an opposite-field grounder that would have likely been gobbled up by Carlos Correa had the shift not been on. As is, the ball just squeaked through to score Marcus Semien. For the season as a whole, Reddick is slashing .298/.378/.439 with six homers and 23 RBI over 205 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:18 pm

    Advice: Making just his third start of the year, Worley gave up three hits, including a two-run home run, while walking four. He's been pretty good in relief for the O's this year, owning a 3.16 ERA overall in 51 1/3 innings of work, and it's likely that he'll return to that role following Tuesday's spot start.

  • Yanks going 'full bore' for Chapman deals
    According to Buster Olney of ESPN, rival executives say that the Yankees are going to "full bore" in shaping trades for Aroldis Chapman and others.

    Advice: The Yankees haven't publicly said that they are selling, but Olney writes that they began setting the groundwork weeks ago, with the Nationals, Rangers, and Indians among the teams involved for Chapman. Carlos Beltran and Andrew Miller are the other headline pieces that could be moved in the coming days. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:51 am
  • Report: Indians intrigued by Chapman, Miller
    According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, rival executives have the sense that the Indians are more inclined "to shoot the moon" for a trade for Aroldis Chapman or Andrew Miller than they typically would.

    Advice: The Indians have a great rotation and expect to get Michael Brantley back soon, so adding an impact arm to put alongside Cody Allen and Bryan Shaw in the bullpen makes a lot of sense. Chapman will be a free agent after this season while Miller has another year remaining on his contract. Assuming the Yankees decide to sell, both pitchers will generate significant interest leading up to August 1. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:45 am
  • Matt Wisler undone by the longball Monday
    Matt Wisler was roughed up for six runs -- five earned -- over five innings in Monday's loss to the Reds.

    Advice: Wisler faced the minimum through the first three innings, but the Reds got to him with three home runs and five runs in the fourth. The young right-hander has had an up-and-down season and has now allowed six runs in back-to-back outings. He'll have a tough time bouncing back this weekend in Colorado.

  • Vance Worley to start for Orioles on Tuesday
    Vance Worley will start for the Orioles on Tuesday against the Yankees.

    Advice: Worley has been working as the long man out of the O's bullpen, most recently working 1 2/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Rays. Since he isn't fully stretched out, it's hard to imagine him working longer than five innings on Tuesday, making him an even more unappealing fantasy option than he already is.

  • Nationals fail to strike in Kuhl's six frames
    Chad Kuhl pitched well in earning a no-decision against the Nationals on Sunday, firing six innings of shutout ball.

    Advice: Kuhl allowed just one hit, but despite his shutout work, no decision would be rendered until the Pirates secured the win via a solo home run by Starling Marte in the 18th inning. Through his first four major league starts, the 23-year-old right-hander has allowed nine runs on 19 hits over 19 1/3 innings. That works out to a 4.19 ERA. A home start against the Phillies shows next on his schedule. Rotoworld.com Jul 17, 4:25 pm

  • Josh Reddick homers, scores four runs
    Josh Reddick reached four times, homered and scored four runs Friday in Oakland's 8-7 edging of Toronto.

    Advice: Reddick usually comes to the plate with two out and none on, so he's not often in a position to score (or drive in) runs. He had some fun tonight, though. It's the second time in his career that he's scored four runs in a game. He's just the second Athletic in the last two seasons to score four times; Coco Crisp did it on June 25.

  • Walker slugs three-run homer vs. Phillies
    Neil Walker slugged a three-run homer in Friday’s win over the Phillies.

    Advice: His sixth-inning blast off Jeremy Hellickson was his only hit in four trips to the plate on Friday, but it proved to be the big hit in the ballgame. He’s now up to 16 homers on the year, which equals his total from all of last season. Walker batted cleanup Friday and could continue to stick there until Yoenis Cespedes (quad) is ready to return.
