    Starling Marte (elbow) is back in the Pirates' starting lineup Tuesday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Marte was hit in the left elbow by a pitch Thursday and didn't start a game over the weekend against the Cubs, but he's ready to go it a go. He'll bat sixth in his return Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Choice (hamstring) done for season
    Michael Choice (hamstring) has been shut down for the season.

    Advice: Choice strained his left hamstring legging out a double on Sunday and has been ruled out for the rest of the year. The 24-year-old batted just .182/.250/.320 with nine homers over 86 games with the Rangers this season and is unlikely to have a significant role going into 2015. Rotoworld.com

  • Anthony Rizzo not in Cubs' lineup Tuesday

    Advice: Rizzo hit a walk-off homer Monday in his first game since injuring his back late last month. The Cubs are just giving him a planned day off. Rotoworld.com

  • Arcia exits game with back tightness
    Oswaldo Arcia left Monday's game with tightness in his upper left back.

    Advice: Arcia tweaked his back on a big swing-and-miss in the sixth inning and was later removed for a pinch-hitter. The Twins will see how he feels Tuesday, but he might have to miss a day or two. Rotoworld.com

  • Pablo Sandoval dealing with sore hip
    Pablo Sandoval is currently dealing with a sore hip.

    Advice: It was evident throughout Monday's game, though he continued to play and went 2-for-4 with a double. It sounds like something the Giants will attempt to manage, but fantasy owners should keep the situation in mind. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 5:51 am
  • Venable (back) returns to Padres' lineup
    Will Venable (back) went 0-for-1 with a walk and two strikeouts Monday in his return to action against the Phillies.

    Advice: Venable hadn't started a game since last Wednesday due to a back strain. The 31-year-old owns a disappointing .221/.290/.317 batting line over 134 games this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Trout goes 1-for-2 with three walks and a run
    Mike Trout went 1-for-2 with three walks and a run scored in Monday's win over the Mariners.

    Advice: Trout is now 4-for-23 (.174) off the Mariners' Hisashi Iwakuma. That's his worst batting average against any pitcher Trout has ever had 15 or more at-bats against. Fortunately, he's really, really good against everybody else. Trout is slashing .291/.381/.567 and is on pace for 37 homers, 116 RBI, 117 runs and 15 steals. Rotoworld.com

  • Iwakuma yields 7 runs in loss to the Angels
    Hisashi Iwakuma was knocked around by the Angels on Monday, allowing seven runs on six hits across 3 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Iwakuma struck out four, walked two and gave up a homer. Seattle dug itself into an 8-0 hole before getting on the board in the eighth inning. The Japanese right-hander, who came into this outing 5-0 with a 1.75 ERA in seven career outings against the Angels, picked the wrong time to fall apart, allowing the Angels to improve to 94-56. Iwakuma (14-8, 3.42 ERA) is scheduled to take on the Astros in Houston on Saturday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:08 pm
  • Trumbo blasts a salami, knocks in five runs
    Mark Trumbo hit a grand slam to lead the Diamondbacks past the Giants 6-2 on Monday.

    Advice: He finished 2-for-5 with five RBI, adding an RBI single in the seventh. The big damage came in the third frame, when Trumbo swatted a Ryan Vogelsong offering over the right field wall to plate Wade Miley, Chris Owings and A.J. Pollock. Trumbo has driven in 10 runs over his last five games. A hot finish would give a nice superficial boost to his disappointing slash line (.239/.303/.389). Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:46 pm
  • Posey drives in a run in loss to the Snakes
    Buster Posey went 1-for-4 with an RBI as the Giants fell to the Diamondbacks 6-2 on Monday.

    Advice: He has hit safely in six straight. Posey has knocked in 27 of his 86 RBI in his last 23 games. He's been particularly hot in the season's final month, going 22-for-49 (.449) with two homers and 14 RBI in September. The catcher typically feasts on Rattler pitchers, coming into this one hitting .375 with 17 RBI in his last 18 against Arizona. He's slashing .311/.362/.488 with 20 homers. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:45 pm
  • Yasiel Puig reaches three times in win
    Yasiel Puig had another nice game in a rout Monday, going 2-for-5 with a double, a walk and two runs scored.

    Advice: Puig is 7-for-17 with two doubles and two walks the last four days. He still hasn't homered since July 31, but things seem to be getting better. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:36 pm
  • Wilin Rosario goes 3-for-4, homers
    Wilin Rosario went 3-for-4 and homered against the Dodgers on Monday.

    Advice: It's worth wondering what's in store for Rosario after his disappointing offensive season; despite all of his success in 2012 and 2013, the Rockies tried to sign Brian McCann last winter with the idea of moving Rosario out from behind the plate. There won't really be anywhere to move Rosario this winter, so he'll either remain a catcher or possibly get traded. It'd be a case of selling low for the Rockies, though. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:30 pm
  • Nori Aoki reaches five times in Royals' win
    Nori Aoki went 4-for-4 with a double and a walk to lead the Royals to a 4-3 win over the White Sox on Monday.

    Advice: Aoki doubled in a tie game in the bottom of the ninth, only to be replaced by a pinch-runner despite his plus speed. It ended up working out for the Royals, as the outrageously fast Terrence Gore scored from second on an infield single to win the game. Aoki is hitting .349 in 43 at-bats this month, though he's not doing much else to help fantasy owners at the moment. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:04 pm
  • Jake Petricka takes blown save, loss
    Jake Petricka took his fifth blown save and his fifth loss after giving up two runs in the ninth Monday against the Royals.

    Advice: Petricka came in with two outs in the eighth and bailed Zach Putnam out of a jam, but he gave up two doubles to tie the game in the ninth. The Royals went on to win on a little grounder up the middle that Alexei Ramirez couldn't handle. It was ruled an infield single that allowed the runner to score all of the way from second, so the run was earned, even though that seemed rather ridiculous. We would hope this doesn't cost Petricka additional save chances down the stretch. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:00 pm
  • Anthony Rizzo walks off with homer in return
    Anthony Rizzo hit a walkoff homer off Pedro Villarreal in the bottom of the ninth as the Cubs beat the Reds 1-0 on Monday.

    Advice: At least the Cubs are still trying to win; the Reds could care less. Rizzo, playing for the first time since Aug. 26, was the only player on either team to have a multihit game tonight, going 2-for-4. The homer was his 31st of the year, which tops his 2013 total by eight. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:32 pm
  • Evan Gattis (strep throat) out again Monday
    Evan Gattis (strep throat) is out of the Braves' lineup again Monday against the Nationals.

    Advice: Gattis hasn't played since last Sunday due to strep throat. He's scheduled to meet with doctors to determine why his symptoms haven't subsided. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:17 pm
  • Rizzo (back) finally returns to Cubs' lineup
    Anthony Rizzo (back) is in the Cubs' starting lineup on Monday night against the Reds.

    Advice: Rizzo missed nearly three weeks with a back injury. The first baseman is batting .278/.375/.514 with 30 home runs and 71 RBI in 129 games and will look to finish off his breakout 2014 campaign with a bang. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:13 pm
  • Venable (back) used as pinch-hitter Sunday
    Will Venable (back) was used as a pinch-runner in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Venable remained absent from the starting lineup with a back strain. It's a good sign that he felt well enough to run and he's likely to return fully this week. The outfielder has registered a disappointing .222/.287/.318 batting line in 132 games this season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 5:49 am
  • Marte (elbow) strikes out as pinch-hitter
    Starling Marte (elbow) struck out as a pinch-hitter in Sunday's series finale with the Cubs.

    Advice: Marte didn't start a game the entire series due to the left elbow bruise that he suffered last Thursday when he was struck by a pitch. He should be fine to return to the Pirates' starting lineup early this week. Rotoworld.com

  • Choice triples, drives in three vs. Braves
    Michael Choice went 2-for-3 with a double, triple and three RBI in Sunday's win over the Braves.

    Advice: Choice had an RBI triple in the second inning before knocking a two-run double in the Rangers' six-run fifth inning. Choice has that kind of power and ability, but strikeouts and inconsistency have hurt him. The 24-year-old is hitting .182/.250/.320 on the year. He left Sunday's game with a strained left hamstring and could be in danger of an early shutdown. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 4:38 pm
  • Michael Choice leaves with strained hamstring
    Michael Choice left Sunday's game against the Braves with a strained left hamstring.

    Advice: Choice will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of his injury. Fantasy owners relying on him over the final two weeks may want to look elsewhere. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 3:04 pm
  • Mike Trout homers twice in Angels' win
    Mike Trout went 3-for-3 with two solo homers and an intentional walk Saturday in the Angels' 5-2 defeat of the Astros.

    Advice: Trout collected his 33rd and 34th homers and his 39th double. Really, if there was any question left, he might have just locked up AL MVP honors tonight. Trout leads the league with 107 runs scored and 107 RBI, he's moved into a tie for third in homers and he's third behind Jose Abreu and Victor Martinez in OPS, while obviously having greater defensive value than those two.

  • Yasiel Puig goes 3-for-5 in rout
    Yasiel Puig had three hits and three runs scored in Saturday's drubbing of the Giants.

    Advice: Sure, everyone had a nice game for the Dodgers tonight, but it's still an important step forward for Puig, who was in a 10-for-73 slump since his last three-hit game on Aug. 15. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:36 pm
  • Trumbo goes 3-for-5, drives in three vs. Pads
    Mark Trumbo finished 3-for-5 with three RBI as the Diamondbacks beat the Padres 10-4 on Saturday.

    Advice: Trumbo smacked a two-run single in the first inning and later scored on a wild pitch. He then plated Chris Owings on a fielder's choice in the second and doubled in the fifth before singling and scoring again in the eighth. Trumbo seems to be finding a groove now after struggling initially in his return from a fractured foot. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:38 pm
  • Will Venable (back) remains out of the lineup
    Will Venable (back) remains out of the Padres' lineup Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Venable has been sidelined with a back strain since Wednesday. He holds a poor batting line of .222/.287/.318 with six home runs and 27 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 2:20 pm
  • Starling Marte (elbow) out again on Saturday
    Starling Marte (elbow) remains out of the Pirates' starting lineup Saturday versus the Cubs.

    Advice: Marte has been sidelined taking a pitch off his left elbow Thursday. X-rays were negative but he has a significant contusion and some swelling. The speedster will be available as a pinch-runner on Saturday, but there is no timetable for his full-time return. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 1:20 pm
  • Gattis (strep throat) to miss Sunday as well
    Evan Gattis (strep throat) will remain out of the Braves' lineup on Sunday versus the Rangers.

    Advice: Gattis has been sidelined with strep since Monday. This is obviously bad news for the Braves as they battle for a spot in the playoffs. He is batting .270/.325/.507 with 22 homers and 52 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 1:10 pm
  • Evan Gattis remains out of Braves lineup
    Evan Gattis (strep throat) remains out of the Braves starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Gattis reported feeling better on Saturday morning, but the Braves are rolling with Christian Bethancourt behind the dish and Tommy La Stella at designated hitter instead. Look for the White Bear to return to the middle of the Braves lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Rangers. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:16 am
  • Mike Trout doubles, triples in win
    Mike Trout doubled, tripled and drove in two runs as the Angels topped the Astros 11-3 on Friday.

    Advice: Trout also scored twice, giving him 104 runs and 105 RBI through 143 games. He leads the AL in both categories. The win was the Angels' ninth straight, giving them an 11-game lead in the AL West. Their magic number is just seven with 16 games to go. Rotoworld.com

  • Gattis (strep throat) remains out of lineup
    Evan Gattis (strep throat) remained out of the Braves' lineup Friday.

    Advice: The Braves had anticipated him being ready for designated hitter duty in Texas, but Gattis still isn't feeling up to it. He'll visit the doctor Friday to see if there's anything else he can try to do to get him ready to play at some point this weekend. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 2:47 pm
  • Anthony Rizzo (back) won't play this weekend
    Cubs manager Rick Renteria said Friday that Anthony Rizzo (back) is unlikely to play this weekend.

    Advice: Rizzo has progressed steadily this week in his recovery from a back injury, but he still needs a few more days. A return early next week would seem to be possible. The slugging first baseman hasn't played since August 26. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 2:15 pm
  • Starling Marte has left elbow contusion
    Starling Marte has been diagnosed with a left elbow contusion.

    Advice: It presumably means that he passed an X-ray or it was determined that he didn't need one. Marte was unsure whether he'd be ready to play on Friday, but it sounds like he can safely be considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 7:52 pm
  • Starling Marte exits game after HBP on arm
    Starling Marte left Thursday's game versus the Phillies with left arm discomfort after being hit by a pitch.

    Advice: Marte was plunked by A.J. Burnett in the first inning, and although he initially stayed in, he eventually exited after the top of the third. It's not clear at this point how long he might be out, but the Pirates should provide more on his status after the game. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 4:57 pm
  • Buster Posey propels Giants to win
    Buster Posey went 3-for-5 with an RBI as the Giants beat the Diamondbacks 6-2 on Thursday.

    Advice: It would have been a four-hit day if not for a nice play in the eighth. Even so, Posey is hitting .472 in 36 at-bats this month and .371 with eight homers and 28 RBI in 143 at-bats since the beginning of August. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 4:26 pm
  • Jake Petricka records 13th save
    Jake Petricka pitched a scoreless ninth for his 13th save Thursday against the A's.

    Advice: Petricka also earned a save last night after a long layoff that includes a few days away to attend the birth of his child. There's a good chance he'll get Friday off now, so perhaps Zach Putnam will pick up a save opp. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 2:06 pm
  • Will Venable diagnosed with back strain
    Will Venable was diagnosed with a back strain.

    Advice: Venable left Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers after five innings and Padres manager Bud Black told reporters after the game that he will "probably be out a couple days." Venable has been a major disappointment this season, batting just .222/.287/.318 with six home runs and nine stolen bases in 132 games. He had 22 homers and 22 steals in 2013. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:34 pm
  • Iwakuma yields 4 runs in loss to the Astros
    Hisashi Iwakuma worked just 4 1/3 innings on Wednesday, allowing four runs on six hits in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Iwakuma did strike out six batters, but a two-out three-run Astros' rally in the second inning did him in. He's been in a real funk recently, logging a 7.24 ERA across his last three starts before tonight, though he did enter tonight 4-0 with a 2.31 ERA over his last five outings against division rivals, and 5-1 in his last six home appearances. Iwakuma (14-7, 3.11 ERA) better get it together, because he has a big start on deck with a date against the Angels scheduled for Tuesday. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:22 pm
  • Jake Petricka perfect for 12th save
    Jake Petricka pitched a perfect ninth for his 12th save as the White Sox beat the A's 2-1 on Wednesday.

    Advice: The White Sox scored twice in the bottom of the eighth to take an unexpected lead. Petricka, who hadn't worked since Sept. 2 after missing the weekend to be with his wife and newborn, was probably going to pitch the ninth either way. He's not assured every remaining save chance for the White Sox, but he remains the best bet in their pen. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:52 pm
  • Venable leaves game with undisclosed injury
    Will Venable left Wednesday's game against the Dodgers with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: It's unclear what happened to the outfielder, but Cameron Maybin replaced him in center field to start the bottom of the fifth inning. The Padres should give an update on his status shortly. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:40 pm
  • Puig batting leadoff for Dodgers Wednesday
    Yasiel Puig is batting leadoff for the Dodgers on Wednesday night against the Padres.

    Advice: Puig is an extended slump and hit seventh on Tuesday night, but manager Don Mattingly has decided to give him the bump in the hope that it provides a spark. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 2:53 pm
  • Evan Gattis (strep throat) to DH this weekend
    Evan Gattis (strep throat) is expected to be ready to serve as the designated hitter this weekend in Texas.

    Advice: Gattis will miss a third straight game Wednesday due to strep throat, but he's feeling better and will be ready to at least bat over the weekend. "El Oso Blanco" is hitting .270/.325/.507 with 22 homers and 52 RBI over 102 games this season. Christian Bethancourt is behind the plate again Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:03 am
  • Posey drives in a pair of runs in 5-1 victory
    Buster Posey finished 0-for-4 but still drove in a pair of runs in the Giants' 5-1 win against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

    Advice: He grounded into an RBI fielder's choice in the second inning, and lifted a sacrifice fly to left in the sixth to score Angel Pagan. Posey adores Arizona pitching. Even though he didn't hit safely tonight, he came into this game batting .390 with three homers and 14 RBI in his last 15 games versus the Snakes. It wasn't a surprise he scratched out an RBI against Wade Miley, against whom he entered 9-for-20 with a homer and three doubles lifetime. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:57 pm
  • Arcia's 2-run HR the difference as Twins win
    Oswaldo Arcia's fourth-inning two-run home run proved to be the difference as the Twins topped the Indians on Tuesday.

    Advice: Arcia, who finished 2-for-4 on the evening, slugged a 415-foot shot to right-center in the fourth inning off of Trevor Bauer, capping off a four-run frame. The Indians finished with three runs. Arcia is lackluster in the average and on-base departments, but will show up every now and then to go yard. He's slashing .220/.293/.439 with 16 home runs and 48 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:23 pm
  • Gattis (strep throat) aims for Friday return
    Evan Gattis (strep throat) is hoping to return to the Braves' lineup on Friday.

    Advice: Gattis missed a second straight game Tuesday due to strep throat. His symptoms are improving, but the Braves have told him to stay at the team hotel through Wednesday before making the trip to Texas this weekend. "He's feeling better, but he's still at the hotel," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "Hopefully we'll get to see him tomorrow sometime, because we've got to fly out tomorrow. I don't know when, if it'll be game time or what, but I'm sure we'll see him." Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 4:46 pm
  • Rizzo (back) hopes to return by this weekend
    Anthony Rizzo (back) hopes to return to the Cubs' lineup by the end of the week.

    Advice: If not by the weekend, Rizzo thinks he'll "for sure" be ready to play during the Cubs' homestand that begins next Monday. Manager Rick Renteria was more cautious regarding a potential timetable, saying, "I don't want to speculate on that part." Rizzo worked out for the second straight day Tuesday, taking some infield and light batting practice. It looked likely last week that his season was over, but it appears the first baseman will make it back after all. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 3:57 pm
  • Rizzo (back) takes ground balls, swings
    Anthony Rizzo (back) took some ground balls and a few swings in the batting cage Monday.

    Advice: Rizzo has been out since August 26 with a mild lower back strain, but he's now hopeful that he'll be able to return this weekend. However, Cubs manager Rick Renteria wants to see more before talking about a timeline. "I'll reserve my optimism," Renteria said. "Today is the first day where he's gone out there. He's trying to see how his body is feeling, but I'll just say we'll keep digging it as it comes." Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:48 am
  • Starling Marte goes 3-for-5, homers
    Starling Marte went 3-for-5 with a homer, a double and two RBI against the Phillies on Monday.

    Advice: Marte looked like a good candidate for a minor league stint a month into the season, but since May 1, he's hit .295/.362/.480 in 329 at-bats. Factoring in his strong defense in left, that line has made him one of the NL's better players of late. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:55 pm
  • Cubs' Rizzo (back) could return this weekend
    Anthony Rizzo (back) took swings Monday and believes that he could return as soon as this weekend.

    Advice: Rizzo has been out since August 26 with a mild lower back strain. While he still has some hurdles to cross before returning to the lineup, he could still prove useful to fantasy owners this month. Rotoworld.com

    Evan Gattis is out Monday due to strep throat.

    Advice: The Braves are starting Gerald Laird at catcher in their series-opener against the Nationals and can't say for certain when Gattis might be able to return. It's probably going to be at least a couple of days. Gattis has an .832 OPS and 22 home runs. Rotoworld.com

  • Puig (stomach) goes 0-for-2 in return Sunday
    Yasiel Puig (stomach) finished 0-for-2 with a walk in his return to the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Puig was held out of action on Saturday with a minor stomach problem. An IV did the trick, but the struggling 23-year-old basically seems to be splitting time in center field at this point with Joc Pederson. It's all very poor timing for Puig's fantasy owners. He had a .959 OPS on August 3. That's now down to .861. Rotoworld.com

  • Trout hits 32nd home run in win over Twins
    Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in Sunday's win over the Twins.

  • Wilin Rosario activated from disabled list
    Rockies activated C Wilin Rosario from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Rosario missed the last two weeks of action with left wrist inflammation. Michael McKenry played well while Rosario was out, but Rosario should return to playing pretty much every day. Rotoworld.com

  • Gattis slugs go-ahead homer in 10th vs. MIA
    Evan Gattis slugged a go-ahead homer in the top of the 10th inning to lead the Braves past the Marlins 4-3 on Saturday night in Miami.

    Advice: It was a shot to left-center field against Miami reliever Bryan Morris that was initially ruled in play before a replay review confirmed that it cleared the yellow line. Gattis also had two singles earlier in the game, finishing 3-for-5 with two runs scored. He boasts an .838 OPS, 21 homers, and 51 RBI in 101 games. Rotoworld.com

  • Yasiel Puig out Saturday with stomach issues
    Yasiel Puig is out of the Dodgers' lineup with stomach problems on Saturday versus the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Puig is getting an IV. Joc Pederson will draw the start in center field on Saturday and could continue to see regular playing time down the stretch this season. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 6, 3:16 pm
  • Puig benched for Pederson again on Saturday
    Yasiel Puig is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup again on Saturday versus the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Joc Pederson is starting in center field over Puig and could continue to see regular playing time down the stretch. Pederson had a monstrous 2014 season at Triple-A and is the Dodgers' best defensive outfielder by far. He needs to be owned in all mixed fantasy leagues at this point. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 6, 2:41 pm
  • Jake Petricka out this weekend due to baby
    Jake Petricka will not be available this weekend against the Indians, as he just welcomed a new child.

    Advice: Zach Putnam will presumably handle save opportunities in Petricka's place. Petricka has a cool 2.73 ERA with 11 saves on the season for the White Sox. He should be back in the Chicago bullpen Monday against the Athletics. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 6, 2:21 pm
  • Buster Posey has three hits, homer in victory
    Buster Posey went 3-for-3 and belted his 20th home run of the season as the Giants defeated the Tigers 5-4 on Saturday afternoon in Detroit.

    Advice: Posey also drew a walk, reaching safely in each of his four plate appearances in the ballgame. His two-out single in the first inning started a four-run rally, and he tacked on the would-be winning run with a solo blast off David Price in the fifth inning.
