  • Tyler Lyons allows three runs in start
    Tyler Lyons pitched six innings of three-run ball in his spot start Wednesday against the Nationals.

    Advice: Lyons will probably be called on once or twice more this month with the Cardinals sitting pretty in the NL playoff picture. He'll be a decent option in NL-only leagues when he gets the nod as a starter. Rotoworld.com 18 minutes ago

  • Brandon Moss goes 3-for-5, homers
    Brandon Moss went 3-for-5 with a homer Wednesday versus the Nationals.

    Advice: Moss's homer tonight wasn't as dramatic as Tuesday's walk-off bomb, but it was another great game for him. He has four homers during his current seven-game hitting streak. It looks like he could be a nice asset in mixed leagues the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com 20 minutes ago

  • Morales clubs 3-run homer as Royals win
    Kendrys Morales went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run as the Royals skated to a 12-1 victory over the Tigers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Morales turned the game into a laugher, as his three-run home run in the fourth inning off of Guido Knudson made it a 9-0 game. He's keeping his foot oo the pedal of a fine season, batting .288/.354/.471 with 17 home runs and 94 RBI. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:17 pm
  • Boxberger allows HR, blows his 5th save
    Brad Boxberger blew the save on Wednesday, allowing a two-run home run in the ninth inning as the Rays were defeated in 11 innings by the Orioles.

    Advice: Boxberger issued a leadoff walk to Matt Wieters, then watched a 6-4 lead turn into a 6-6 tie when Jonathan Schoop smacked a home run to left field. The right-hander rebounded, retiring the next three hitters in order to send the game to the 10th inning. Boxberger is now 33-for-38 in save situations this year with a 3.40 ERA and a 65/28 K/BB ratio in 53 innings. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:01 pm
  • Harvey dehydrated after start against Phils
    Matt Harvey was dehydrated and "feeling a little weak" after Wednesday's start against the Phillies.

    Advice: Harvey gave up four runs over 6 1/3 innings in the win, but it wasn't the most dominant he's been and officials told reporters he was feeling weak during the outing. It was unclear whether Harvey was going to travel with the Mets to Miami Wednesday night or whether he would stay behind. It shouldn't be a huge issue going forward, but it's something to monitor, especially with the Mets wanting to give the right-hander a break sometime in September. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:52 pm

  • Harvey gives up four runs but earns 12th win
    Matt Harvey gave up four runs in 6 1/3 innings but picked up the win on Wednesday facing the Phillies.

    Advice: The Mets staked Harvey to a 6-0 lead after three innings, so he had plenty of breathing room. the Phillies rallied for three runs in the fifth inning, and Darnell Sweeney homered with one out in the seventh. Overall, the right-hander gave up nine hits and a walk while striking out nine. It was the first time Harvey gave up more than one run in a start since July 25. He now has a 2.60 ERA with a 1.01 WHIP and a 158/34 K/BB ratio over 166 1/3 innings. Harvey matches up with the Nationals in a road start next. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:14 pm

  • Gregorius keeps mashing, Yanks crush Red Sox
    Didi Gregorius went 2-for-4 with a home run and three runs scored, and the Yankees outlasted the Red Sox 13-8 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Gregorius scored three of the team's 13 runs and hit one of their five homers on the afternoon. It was the third homer in his last seven games as Gregorius has been one of the hottest hitters in the game lately. He's 16-for-28 in that span, collecting 12 RBI and eight runs scored. The shortstop is now batting a respectable .272/.321/.372 with eight home runs, 44 RBI and 49 runs scored on the year. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:13 pm

  • Hechavarria (hamstring) called day-to-day
    Adeiny Hechavarria (hamstring) is considered day-to-day.

    Advice: Hechavarria made an early departure from the Marlins' matinee game against the Braves on Wednesday after tweaking his left hamstring while legging out a bunt single. He could be out for a couple of games. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:49 pm
  • Wacha skipped Wednesday due to workload
    Michael Wacha is being skipped Wednesday against the Nationals as a way to limit his innings.

    Advice: St. Louis took the first two of three games versus the visiting Nats on Monday and Tuesday, so Tyler Lyons is going to start instead of Wacha in Wednesday night's series finale. Wacha was limited to 107 major league innings in 2014 due to shoulder issues. This looks like a smart move for the Cardinals both in the short term and long term. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:53 pm
  • Cardinals recall Miguel Socolovich from AAA
    Cardinals recalled RHP Miguel Socolovich from Triple-A Memphis.

    Advice: Socolovich has registered an impressive 1.54 ERA in 21 relief appearances this season at the major league level, but it's been tough for him to find regular work in the Cardinals' talented bullpen. The right-hander probably won't see much action down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:12 pm
  • Cardinals recall Tyler Lyons from AAA level
    Cardinals recalled LHP Tyler Lyons from Triple-A Memphis.

    Advice: Lyons is going to make a spot start for the Cardinals on Wednesday night against the Nationals. The left-hander will probably then slide into a long relief role. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:07 pm

  • Wacha scratched from his Wednesday start
    Michael Wacha has been scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday night against the Nationals.

    Advice: Tyler Lyons is going to take the hill instead. No word yet on the reason for bumping Wacha, but it could be similar to the Cardinals' decision to skip Carlos Martinez on Tuesday. That was more of a workload protection thing here in early September, though the Cardinals claimed publicly that Martinez had a sore back. Wacha was spotted flying model planes in the Busch Stadium outfield on Wednesday afternoon. All is well. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:04 pm
  • Adeiny Hechavarria suffers hamstring injury
    Adeiny Hechavarria exited Wednesday's game versus the Braves with a left hamstring injury.

    Advice: Hechavarria tweaked the hammy as he beat out a bunt single. The Marlins could have more on his status after the game. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:39 am
  • Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) out again Wed.
    Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Ramirez hasn't played in a week due to fatigue in his right shoulder. He'll play first base when he does return to action, but Travis Shaw is at the position again Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:30 am

  • Andrelton Simmons (ankle) returns to lineup
    Andrelton Simmons (ankle) is back in the Braves' lineup Wednesday.

  • Calhoun's 3-hit night leads Angels over A's
    Kole Calhoun went 3-for-5 with an RBI single and a solo home run as the Angels topped the Athletics on Tuesday.

    Advice: Calhoun started the scoring in four-run third inning with an RBI infield single. He tacked on a solo home run in the seventh to push the Angels' lead to 6-1. The outfielder is batting .264/.321/.438 with 21 home runs and 69 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:13 pm
  • Moss clubs three-run walk-off homer vs. Nats
    Brandon Moss hit a three-run, walk-off home run as the Cardinals came back to beat the Nationals 8-5 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Moss finished 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored, but it was the homer off Casey Janssen with two outs in the ninth inning that was the difference. It was the third homer in the last six games for Moss, who is finally starting to show why the Cardinals dealt for him at the trade deadline. He's still hitting just .220/.301/.413 with 18 homers and 57 RBI overall, but Moss is capable of continuing his recent power surge through the final few weeks of the season.

  • Rondon closes out Royals to earn third save
    Bruce Rondon pitched a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday against the Royals to earn his third save.

    Advice: It wouldn't be a Bruce Rondon appearance if he didn't play with at least a little fire, issuing a two-out walk to Ben Zobrist and promptly letting Zobrist steal second with Lorenzo Cain, one of the game's best hitters, at the plate, but Rondon got Cain to ground out to end it. He struck out one in the inning. Save chances have been scarce in recent weeks but it appears the 24-year-old is still the man for the job. Rondon has a shaky 6.56 ERA and 1.54 WHIP through 23 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:16 pm
  • Andrelton Simmons (ankle) out again Tuesday
    Andrelton Simmons (ankle) is considered day-to-day.

    Advice: Simmons was a late scratch Monday and is out of the Braves' lineup again on Tuesday due to inflammation in his right ankle. It sounds like he'll be ready later this week. Daniel Castro is starting at shortstop Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:19 pm
  • Hanley won't play any more OF this season
    Hanley Ramirez won't play the outfield again this season.

    Advice: Red Sox interim manager Torey Lovullo made that announcement Tuesday. It's a non-issue right now with Hanley still sidelined by a sore right shoulder, but Lovullo just wanted to lay out that he's committed to Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., and Rusney Castillo as Boston's starting outfield. Hanley could get some starts at first base down the stretch. That's where he'll open the 2016 season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:56 pm

  • Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) out again Tuesday
    Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) is out of the starting lineup again Tuesday against the Yankees.

    Advice: Ramirez has now missed five straight starts due to a sore right shoulder. The Red Sox don't need to place him on the disabled list at this point in this season, but it's unclear when he'll be ready to play again. It's a tricky spot for fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:10 pm

    Advice: Gregorius knocked in a run in the fourth inning to tie the game at 4-4. He stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and one out in the ninth inning, but couldn't knock in the tying run as he hit a fly ball to right field to end the game. The shortstop has had a nice week at the plate, currently on a five-game hitting streak during which he is batting .619 (13-for-21) with two home runs and 11 RBI. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:07 pm
  • Boxberger closes out the O's for 33rd save
    Brad Boxberger pitched a scoreless ninth inning for his 33rd save as the Rays took down the Orioles 6-3 on Monday.

    Advice: Boxberger issued a two-out walk to Chris Davis, but it didn't matter as Matt Wieters flied out to end the game. The right-hander is happy to close out August as he had a rough month. Still, he's 33-for-37 overall in save chances with a 3.12 ERA and a 64/27 K/BB ratio in 52 innings. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:36 pm

    Andrelton Simmons was a late scratch from Monday's lineup due to right ankle inflammation.

    Advice: There's no word yet on if it might be more than a day-to-day ailment. Pedro Ciriaco took Simmons' spot at shortstop. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:45 pm
  • Hanley (shoulder) out again Monday vs. Yanks
    Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) is out of the Red Sox lineup again on Monday night against the Yankees.

    Advice: Ramirez missed Boston's entire weekend series against the Mets with fatigue in his right shoulder. He's been bothered by several injuries throughout 2015 but has yet to spend a day on the disabled list. It's been a source of frustration for fantasy owners, and it's not clear how long this current absence is going to last. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:19 pm

  • Boxberger sets Royals down 1-2-3 for a save
    Brad Boxberger collected his 32nd save with a 1-2-3 ninth inning in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Royals.

    Advice: Boxberger got Mike Moustakas to ground out, Paulo Orlando to foul out, and Omar Infante to line out in a 14-pitch ninth inning. The right-hander has had a really tough August, allowing six runs in 11 appearances with two blown saves. Still, on the season, he's 32-for-36 in save opportunities with a 3.18 ERA and a 63/26 K/BB ratio in 51 innings. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:36 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) held out again

  • Michael Wacha allows four unearned runs
    Michael Wacha allowed four unearned runs over six innings in Friday's no-decision against the Giants.

    Advice: The runs all came on Marlon Byrd's grand slam, which followed errors from Matt Carpenter and Jhonny Peralta to set things up in the third. Wacha barely escaped that inning, giving up two singles after the homer, but he was perfectly fine otherwise. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:38 pm
  • Harvey fans eight in six scoreless innings
    Matt Harvey turned in a strong performance in Friday's no-decision against the Red Sox, firing six innings of scoreless baseball.

    Advice: Harvey struck out eight, walked one and allowed just two hits during his six innings on the mound. This should have been enough to earn him a victory, but Mets reliever Logan Verrett was knocked for three runs in the seventh and the Red Sox would ultimately win 6-4 in 10 innings. Tough outcome aside, Harvey's now allowed one or fewer runs in each of his last five starts while boasting a 2.48 ERA and 0.99 WHIP for the season. Given the way he's throwing the ball, his upcoming home outing against the Phillies should be a breeze. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:41 pm

  • Gregorius drives in six in blowout of Braves
    Didi Gregorius posted a huge game in Friday's 15-4 win over the Braves, hitting a three-run homer and finishing with six total RBI.

    Advice: Yowza yowza. Gregorius jumped into the action early with a three-run homer off Williams Perez in the first inning. He would add a two-run single in the second, then slouch off on the RBI binge until the eighth, when he hit an RBI single just for fun. When the dust settled, the Yankee shortstop had finished 4-for-5 with six RBI. This was his second four-hit game of the season and the six RBI represented a season high. For the year, he's slashing .260/.306/.355 with seven homers and 40 RBI. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:39 pm
  • Morales destroys baseball for two-run homer
    Kendrys Morales went 2-for-4 with a long two-run homer and a strikeout in Friday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Morales absolutely teed off on an Erasmo Ramirez offering in the third inning, cracking a two-run homer that traveled an estimated 439 feet out to center. The bomb was his 15th of the season and boosted his RBI total to 89. His career-best for RBI in a year is 108, set in 2009 when he played for the Angels. He should fall somewhere in that range when the 2015 record books are closed out in a month. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:01 pm
  • Calhoun can't find traction vs Bauer
    Kole Calhoun went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday's loss to the Indians.

    Advice: Calhoun just couldn't get anything going from the lead-off spot. Given that the Angels only managed five total hits for the contest, he was just a cog in the machine of failure. He's hitting .262/.321/.431 with 19 homers and 66 RBI this season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:56 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez battling shoulder fatigue
    Hanley Ramirez was scratched from the Red Sox' lineup Friday due to right shoulder fatigue.

  • Moss' two-run homer snaps 3-3 tie in fifth
    Brandon Moss went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer in Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Moss cracked his two-run shot off of Diamondbacks starter Rubby De La Rosa in the fifth inning, breaking a 3-3 tie. The Cardinals went on to win 5-3 as they completed a four-game sweep of the boys in the desert. In addition to the big home run, Moss also walked twice. Since joining the Cardinals on July 30, he's hit just .180/.317/.280 in an even 50 at-bats, though he does have 16 homers and 53 RBI to his good name for the season as a whole.

  • Morales homers as Royals eke out win vs. O's
    Kendrys Morales clubbed a solo home run and drew a pair of walks in four plate appearances Tuesday as the Royals eked out a win against the Orioles.

    Advice: Morales started the scoring when he went yard to right-center off of Miguel Gonzalez in the second inning. Though his numbers have tapered off over the last two weeks, the DH has been a steady force in the middle of the Royals' lineup, batting .283/.349/.453 with 14 home runs and 86 RBI. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:11 pm
  • Hanley confirms he's moving to 1B next year
    Hanley Ramirez acknowledged to reporters Tuesday that he is moving to first base next year.

    Advice: The first directive from new Red Sox president Dave Dombrowski, perhaps? Hanley was spotted taking grounders and making throws on Tuesday afternoon in Chicago and said after the workout that he could begin seeing starts at first base down the stretch this season. "I'm looking forward to it," said Hanley, who has been a disaster in left field. Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., and Rusney Castillo make up the outfield of the future in Boston.

  • Hanley Ramirez taking grounders at first base
    Hanley Ramirez took grounders and made throws at first base on Tuesday afternoon.

    Advice: Hanley has been a huge disappointment defensively in his first year as an everyday outfielder. An eventual move to first base makes sense for the former shortstop with Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., and Rusney Castillo lined up as Boston's outfield of the future. Ramirez is under contract with the Red Sox through 2018. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:29 pm

  • No structural damage for Simmons (knee)
    An MRI has ruled out structural damage in Andrelton Simmons' left knee.

    Advice: Simmons will miss a second straight start Monday with a sore knee, but he's available off the bench and expected back in there Tuesday. The slick-fielding shortstop is hitting .261/.324/.337 with just three homers and 32 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Aug 24, 1:37 pm
  • Cubs put Jorge Soler (oblique) on 15-day DL
    Cubs placed OF Jorge Soler on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique.

    Advice: It'll be at least a four-week injury for Soler, which means he might not play again in the regular season. The Cuban outfielder has had a relatively disappointing year, but he's still a dangerous presence in the middle of the Cubs' lineup with 21 RBI in 33 games in the second half. Chris Coghlan will probably be moved back to the outfield. Tommy La Stella has been called up to help at second base. Rotoworld.com Aug 24, 8:41 am

  • Wacha's six innings of one-run ball fuel win
    Michael Wacha improved to 15-4 in Sunday's win over the Padres, allowing just one run on five hits over six innings.

    Advice: Wacha struck out three and walked two on the afternoon. Clint Barmes managed a second-inning RBI single against the Cards ace, but that would be the only run to dent the scoreboard on his watch. He boasts a 2.80 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 128/38 K/BB ratio across 151 1/3 innings. Up next on his schedule, a road date with the Giants. Rotoworld.com Aug 23, 5:05 pm
