  • Mike Clevinger roughed up by Tigers
    Mike Clevinger coughed up five runs over just two innings of work in a loss to the Tigers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Detroit didn't have any trouble squaring up Clevinger in this one, knocking him out with seven hits -- including a home run -- and a couple walks to go along with five runs. The rookie had been pitching well of late and still has a shot to make a start for the Tribe in the ALDS. He'll have a final tune-up Sunday in Kansas City. 44 minutes ago
  • Aaron Sanchez strikes out 10, moves to 14-2
    Aaron Sanchez struck out 10 batters while spinning six innings of one-run ball in Tuesday's 5-1 victory over the Orioles.

    Advice: It was an intriguing pitching matchup with Sanchez and Kevin Gausman going up against two good offenses, but Sanchez easily bested his counterpart in this one. The righty walked three but permitted only five hits to go along with his 10 punchouts. He's posted quality starts in four of his last five tries and has yielded just one run in each of his last two outings, as Sanchez doesn't appear to be tiring down the stretch. He'll face the Red Sox Sunday to finish out the regular season. 55 minutes ago

  • Kevin Gausman struggles against Blue Jays
    Kevin Gausman allowed five runs -- four earned -- over six innings in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: The good news is Gausman didn't appear to be affected at all by the minor intercostal strain he dealt with in his last start. However, he wasn't terribly sharp in this one, yielding seven hits -- including a homer homers -- and two walks. Gausman has been the Orioles' best starter for the last month but has struggled his last two times out. He'll conclude his regular season Sunday in the Bronx. 59 minutes ago

  • Matt Koch solid in spot start versus Nats
    Matt Koch held the Nationals to two runs over five innings in a spot start Tuesday.

    Advice: Koch allowed just a hit by pitch over over his first five innings, but he might have tired in the sixth in yielding a single and walk to start off the frame. He was pulled at that point and the Diamondbacks' bullpen allowed both inherited runners to score in addition to two more runs on top of it. It's unclear whether Koch will get another start on Sunday. Today, 7:05 pm

  • Mark Melancon nets 44th save Tuesday
    Mark Melancon tossed a perfect ninth inning to notch his 44th save of the season in Tuesday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Called upon to protect a two-run lead, Melancon had a stress-free ninth with a couple groundouts and a strikeout. The veteran closer has nailed down 44-of-48 save opportunities this season, including 14-of-15 since joining the Nationals. Today, 7:01 pm
  • Giants DFA right-hander Matt Reynolds
    Giants designated RHP Matt Reynolds for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a 40-man roster spot for Tony Sanchez, who joined the Giants as an emergency backup catcher on Tuesday. Reynolds allowed five earned runs on seven hits and five walks in six innings this season out of the San Francisco bullpen. Today, 5:04 pm

  • Steven Wright (shoulder) throws 'pen session
    Steven Wright (shoulder) threw a light bullpen session on Tuesday in Fort Myers, Florida.

    Advice: He's scheduled for a more intense mound workout on Friday at Fenway Park. Wright can be ruled out for the remainder of the 2016 regular season, but he could be an option for the Red Sox in some capacity during the playoffs. Today, 2:09 pm
    L, 6-4 @NYY
  • Pomeranz (arm) won't start Thursday at NYY
    Drew Pomeranz has been scratched from his scheduled start Thursday against the Yankees due to soreness in his left forearm and concerns about his overall workload.

    Advice: Henry Owens will take the mound instead at Yankee Stadium. According to the Red Sox, if Pomeranz pitches again this season it will be out of the bullpen. The southpaw holds a 3.35 ERA in a career-high 169 1/3 frames this year. He is eligible for salary arbitration this winter after earning $1.35 million in 2016. Today, 2:01 pm
    L, 6-4 @NYY
  • Dillon Gee (lungs, shoulder) done for year
    Dillon Gee has been shut down for the season due to blood clots in his lung and shoulder.

    Advice: Gee experienced shortness of breath following an appearance Sunday in Detroit and had to be hospitalized overnight. He's feeling better now, but the Royals are going to play it safe with the 30-year-old right-hander for obvious reasons. Gee finishes 2016 with a 4.68 ERA in 14 starts and 19 relief appearances. Today, 1:25 pm
    W, 4-3 vs Min
  • Joaquin Benoit diagnosed with a tear in calf
    Joaquin Benoit has been diagnosed with a torn muscle in his calf.

    Advice: He won't pitch again in the regular season, but it sounds like the veteran reliever could be an option at some point in October if the Blue Jays are able to make a deep postseason run. Benoit suffered the injury during Monday's benches-clearing fracas with the Yankees. He had registered a fantastic 0.38 ERA in 23 2/3 innings with Toronto. Today, 1:22 pm
    W, 5-1 vs Bal
  • Edwin Diaz takes third blown save
    Edwin Diaz blew his second save in a week Monday after giving up two runs in the ninth against the Astros.

    Advice: On the plus side, the Mariners went on to win both of those blown saves. Those are also the only two times in ten appearances this month that he's been scored upon. Overall, Diaz is 17-for-20 saving games. Yesterday, 9:31 pm
  • Benoit (calf) left clubhouse on crutches
    Joaquin Benoit (calf) was seen leaving the clubhouse on crutches.

    Advice: That doesn't sound good. Benoit reportedly injured his calf in the scrum during Monday's benches-clearing brawl. While no official diagnosis has been announced, it sounds like it's potentially serious. Yesterday, 9:14 pm
    W, 5-1 vs Bal
  • Tanner Roark touched up by Diamondbacks
    Tanner Roark wasn't sharp Monday, yielding five runs over four frames in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Things were moving along swimmingly initially, as Roark retired the first nine batters in order. He then fell apart in the fourth inning, serving up a couple home runs among four hits while also walking a batter in a five-run inning. Roark will have a final tune-up outing this weekend against the Marlins. Yesterday, 8:50 pm
    W, 4-2 vs Ari
  • Andrew Miller notches 10th victory
    Andrew Miller picked up his 10th win in relief Monday, striking out four in 1 2/3 scoreless innings against the Tigers.

    Advice: Miller joins Baltimore's Brad Brach among relievers winning 10 games this year. No reliever did it last year. Miller has a 1.69 ERA and an incredible 42/2 K/BB ratio in 26 2/3 innings since joining the Indians. Yesterday, 8:50 pm
  • Buck Farmer gives up four runs in loss
    Buck Farmer allowed four runs over five innings and took a loss against the Indians in his spot start Monday.

    Advice: It's the first major league start for Farmer this year; his previous 13 appearances had all been in relief. Of course, he was a starter in Triple-A, posting a 3.96 ERA and a 93/28 K/BB ratio over 100 innings. Whether he starts or relieves next year is uncertain. He'll probably find himself in the pen for the remainder of this week. Yesterday, 8:47 pm
    W, 12-0 vs Cle
  • Benoit injures calf during brawl
    Joaquin Benoit injured his calf during Monday's benches-clearing brawl with the Yankees.

    Advice: Mae notes that it could be similar to the calf injury Brett Cecil suffered during the playoffs last year. Obviously that would be a tough blow ahead of the postseason, but we should know more about his status soon. Yesterday, 7:52 pm
    W, 5-1 vs Bal
  • Dellin Betances struggles again Monday
    Dellin Betances was pulled from an appearance Monday without recording an out.

    Advice: Betances walked a couple batters and committed an error to load the bases with no one out. He was then pulled in favor of Tommy Layne, who allowed a couple of inherited runners to score but eventually closed out the victory. Betances has really struggled of late, allowing eight runs over his last four appearances and 11 runs over his last eight. He's not in danger of losing his closer job, but it's obviously not the way he wants to pitch down the stretch. Yesterday, 7:44 pm
  • Benoit needed help getting off field
    Joaquin Benoit needed help getting off the field following Monday's benches-clearing brawl with the Yankees.

    Advice: Uh oh. It's unclear what caused the injury, but Benoit was seen limping off the field. It would be a big loss for the Blue Jays, as Benoit owns a 0.38 ERA over 25 appearances since coming over to the Blue Jays in July. Yesterday, 5:36 pm
    W, 5-1 vs Bal
  • Severino ejected from Monday's game
    Luis Severino was ejected from Monday's game against the Blue Jays in the second inning.

    Advice: Severino grazed Josh Donaldson in the elbow with a pitch in the bottom of the first inning and Blue Jays hurler J.A. Happ answered by hitting Chase Headley with a pitch in the top of the second. Severino responded by hitting Justin Smoak with a pitch in the bottom of the frame, which led to a benches-clearing brawl. Yankees manager Joe Girardi, pitching coach Larry Rothschild, and bench coach Rob Thomson have also been ejected. Yesterday, 4:49 pm
    W, 6-4 vs Bos
  • Barnette (oblique) not available Monday
    Tony Barnette (oblique) is not available for Monday's game.

    Advice: Barnette hasn't appeared in a game since September 4 due to an oblique strain, but he made it through a live batting practice session on Saturday with no issues. The Rangers will give him an extra day of rest before potentially using him in Tuesday's game. Barnette owns a 2.15 ERA and 47/15 K/BB ratio over 58 2/3 innings this season. Yesterday, 3:29 pm
    W, 6-4 vs Mil
  • Jeffress available for Monday's game
    Rangers manager Jeff Banister said that he would like to get Jeremy Jeffress into Monday's game.

    Advice: Jeffress returned to the Rangers on Friday after a stint in rehab following an arrest for suspicion of DWI last month, but he has yet to appear in a game. He's likely to be eased back into high-leverage situations. Yesterday, 3:23 pm
  • Severino limited to around 50 pitches Mon.
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Luis Severino will be limited to around 50 pitches on Monday.

    Advice: Severino has been pitching out of the bullpen this month, but he's making a spot start in place of Masahiro Tanaka (forearm) for Monday's game with the Blue Jays. Most fantasy owners can skip this matchup. Yesterday, 2:46 pm
    W, 6-4 vs Bos
  • Koch to start Tuesday vs. Nationals
    Matt Koch will start Tuesday against the Nationals.

    Advice: Koch has appeared in five games since his call-up earlier this month, but this will be his first start in the majors. Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale estimated that he can likely get up to around 75 pitches. He can be avoided in fantasy leagues with this matchup. Yesterday, 2:09 pm
    L, 4-2 @Was
  • Osuna, Benoit expected to get night off Mon.
    Roberto Osuna and Joaquin Benoit are expected to get the day off Monday.

    Advice: Osuna has thrown 38 pitches over the past two days (including his blown save on Sunday) while Benoit threw 24 pitches on Sunday. Jason Grilli would likely get a save chance if needed Monday versus the Yankees. Yesterday, 1:44 pm
  • Yankees outright Graham to Triple-A
    Yankees sent RHP J.R. Graham outright to Triple-A Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: The move clears him from the 40-man roster. Graham was acquired from the Twins back in May and posted a 3.27 ERA and 47/16 K/BB ratio over 44 innings in the minors this season. Yesterday, 1:20 pm

  • Nationals activate reliever Sammy Solis
    Nationals activated LHP Sammy Solis from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Solis will be available out of the Nats' bullpen on Monday night against the Diamondbacks after missing about six weeks with left shoulder inflammation. The lefty reliever has posted an impressive 2.35 ERA with 44 strikeouts in 38 1/3 innings this season. Yesterday, 12:07 pm
  • Rob Zastryzny to start Thursday vs. Bucs
    Rob Zastryzny will make his first major league start this Thursday against the Pirates.

    Advice: It'll be part of a bullpen game for the National League Central-champion Cubs, with Zastryzny probably covering the first 2-3 innings. The 24-year-old southpaw has registered an impressive 1.46 ERA with 13 strikeouts over his first 12 1/3 major league frames. He could make the 25-man postseason roster as a lefty relief specialist. Yesterday, 5:55 am
  • Melancon tallies 43rd save versus former club
    Mark Melancon earned his 43rd save of the season Sunday in the Nationals' 10-7 defeat of the Pirates.

    Advice: A nice bounceback outing from the veteran closer, who blew a save against his former team on Friday night. He worked a 1-2-3 inning Sunday on just 12 pitches, striking out one. Melancon has a 1.76 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and 61/12 K/BB ratio in 66 1/3 innings this season, and now 13 saves as a member of the Nationals. Sunday, 2:52 pm
  • Edwin Diaz earns 17th save, M's defeat Twins
    Edwin Diaz tallied his 17th save Sunday in the Mariners' defeat of the Twins.

    Advice: Diaz struck out one in a scoreless 1-2-3 ninth to preserve the Mariners' one-run lead. It was a reassuring outing from the hard-throwing 22-year-old right-hander, who blew a save Wednesday when he surrendered a game-tying solo home run to Jose Bautista. Sunday, 2:20 pm
  • Marco Estrada superb over seven Sunday
    Marco Estrada limited the Yankees to one run over seven innings but took a no-decision in a 4-3 victory for the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Estrada struck out seven, walked two and yielded just four hits, but one of them was a solo shot by Didi Gregorius to tie things up in the seventh. It was reported earlier this month that Estrada has been pitching through a herniated disc in his back, but the righty has now allowed just one run over his last 14 frames. His regular season concludes next weekend in Boston. Sunday, 1:57 pm
    W, 5-1 vs Bal
  • Roberto Osuna blows save, gets win
    Roberto Osuna blew a save but picked up a win Sunday, allowing two runs in his inning of work against the Yankees.

    Advice: Osuna was tasked with protecting a one-run lead in the top of the ninth but coughed it up on a one-out RBI single from Mason Williams and a sac fly from Ronald Torreyes. However, the Blue Jays then rallied with two runs over their own in the bottom of the frame to make Osuna a winner. Sunday, 1:45 pm
  • David Robertson strikes out side for save
    David Robertson struck out the side in the ninth inning to record a save in Sunday's win over the Indians.

    Advice: All three punchouts were of the swinging variety, as Robertson went through the heart of the Indians' order to protect a three-run lead. The White Sox' closer has now converted 36 saves in 43 chances this season. Sunday, 1:09 pm
    W, 13-6 vs TB
  • Ramos fans two Braves to earn 39th save
    A.J. Ramos struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Saturday against the Braves to earn his 39th save.

    Advice: Ramos had little trouble with the bottom of the Braves order and leadoff hitter Ender Inciarte, who struck out to end the game. His 39 saves are fourth-most in the National League and a single-season high for Ramos. The right-hander owns a 2.90 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 70/33 K/BB ratio over 62 innings this year. Saturday, 9:19 pm
    L, 12-1 vs NYM
  • Kevin Gausman (intercostal) to start Tuesday
    Kevin Gausman (intercostal) felt good during Saturday's bullpen session and will start Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Gausman felt some oblique soreness after his last start but said it was just a cramp. He had been scheduled to start Sunday against the Diamondbacks but Dylan Bundy will get the nod instead with Gausman slotting in after the team's off day on Monday. Despite an 8-11 record, Gausman leads the Orioles in ERA (3.57) and strikeouts (166) this season. Saturday, 2:42 pm
    L, 5-1 @Tor
  • Wright (shoulder) scratched from pen session
    Steven Wright (shoulder) isn't ready to throw a bullpen session.

    Advice: Wright was scheduled to throw a pen session on Sunday but the team realized he wasn't ready. He'll continue with his throwing program but the odds of Wright making it back by the end of the regular season are incredibly slim. Boston could stash him on the postseason roster but even that seems overly optimistic. Frankly, the Red Sox don't need him. Wright was Boston's best pitcher in the first half but David Price and Clay Buchholz have been lights out since the All-Star break while Rick Porcello has emerged as a leading contender for the AL Cy Young Award. Saturday, 1:39 pm
    L, 6-4 @NYY
  • Matt Reynolds gives up four runs
    Matt Reynolds gave up four runs without retiring a batter after entering Friday's game against the Padres.

    Advice: How could Bruce Bochy let this happen? He plugged in one of his weakest relievers down 3-2 in the fifth and allowed five straight batters to reach (one in the middle was intentionally walked) before finally making the move to the vastly superior George Kontos. It was another big mishap from a manager who has struggled mightily in running a bullpen lately. Friday, 11:59 pm

  • Melancon blows save Friday vs. Pirates
    Facing his former team for the first time since the July's trade, Mark Melancon blew a save Friday against the Pirates.

    Advice: It was his first blown save with the Nationals and of course it came against his former team. Melancon gave up the tying run on a double from Sean Rodriguez with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. He bounced back with a scoreless 10th inning, but the Pirates eventually won the game in the 11th. Friday, 9:34 pm
  • Pomeranz gives up one run in win over Rays
    Drew Pomeranz limited the Rays to one run over five innings in a 2-1 victory on Friday.

    Advice: The only run scored on a Mikie Mahtook homer in the second inning. Pomeranz has now allowed 14 homers in just 67 1/3 innings with the Red Sox. Still, Friday was a step forward for him. He gave up four hits without walking a batter and struck out four. There’s some concern over his career-high workload this season, so it’s unclear when he’ll start next. Friday, 7:13 pm
    L, 6-4 @NYY
  • Sammy Solis (shoulder) making progress
    Sammy Solis (shoulder) threw another bullpen session Friday.

    Advice: He'll throw another one Sunday before being re-evaluated. Barring a setback, Solis should rejoin the Nationals' bullpen next week. Friday, 2:18 pm
  • Gausman (intercostal) expected Tues. or Wed.
    Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday that Kevin Gausman (intercostal) is feeling better and is expected to be ready to start Tuesday or Wednesday.

    Advice: Gausman had to be pushed back from Sunday with a minor intercostal issue, but the O's expect him to be fine. If the right-hander is ready to take the ball on Tuesday, he would have time to get in two starts before the end of the regular season. Friday, 1:38 pm
    L, 5-1 @Tor
  • Buck Farmer to start for Tigers Monday
    Buck Farmer will start on Monday against the Indians.

    Advice: Farmer had been slated to make a spot start on Wednesday versus the Twins, but that game was rained out. He holds a 4.07 ERA and 1.52 WHIP over 24 1/3 innings for the Tigers this season but did throw 4 1/3 scoreless relief frames in his last appearance. Friday, 1:21 pm
    W, 12-0 vs Cle
  • Aaron Sanchez to pitch every fifth day
    Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Thursday that Aaron Sanchez will pitch every fifth day for as long as the club is still playing.

    Advice: The Jays have done their best to space out Sanchez's starts in the second half after reversing course and deciding he'd remain in the rotation rather than be sent to the bullpen. However, he'll now remain on turn the rest of the way as the Jays fight to secure a playoff spot. It's worth noting that team president Mark Shapiro has indicated previously there's an innings threshold Sanchez wouldn't go past, although he didn't say what it was. The right-hander is currently at 179 innings for the season. Friday, 8:03 am
    W, 5-1 vs Bal
  • Steven Wright (shoulder) to throw off mound
    Steven Wright (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Sunday.

    Advice: Wright first injured his shoulder back on August 7 during a pinch-running appearance. Red Sox manager John Farrell conceded that if the knuckleballer made it back this season, it would likely be in a relief role. "Just off the top of your head, you’d say yeah, just because of the number of pitches he might be capable of," Farrell said. "But the biggest thing we’ve got to determine is if he’s ready for that next step of intensity." Friday, 5:49 am
    L, 6-4 @NYY
  • Jeremy Jeffress to rejoin Rangers Friday
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Jeremy Jeffress is expected to rejoin the Rangers in Oakland on Friday.

    Advice: Jeffress was arrested on suspicion of DWI last month and chose a stay in rehab over a suspension. He should officially be activated later Friday and may be eased back into high-leverage situations initially. Friday, 5:26 am
  • Clevinger allows two runs over five versus KC
    Mike Clevinger allowed two runs over five innings against the Royals on Thursday.

    Advice: A two-run home run by Alcides Escobar was the only damage against Clevinger on the evening. He was otherwise solid, allowing just four hits and two walks in all. The 25-year-old will carry a 4.65 ERA into Tuesday's start against the Tigers. Thursday, 8:18 pm
  • Gausman pushed back with intercostal strain
    Kevin Gausman will not start on Sunday against the Diamondbacks due to soreness in his intercostal area.

    Advice: Orioles manager Buck Showalter thinks the ailment could have been caused by Gausman being a bit dehydrated. He's hopeful that the injury is minor and that the right-hander will be ready to pitch on Tuesday or Wednesday in Toronto. "He’s got a little something bothering him that we think should manage hopefully by Tuesday or Wednesday," Showalter said. "We hope he’s our starting pitcher Tuesday or Wednesday, that’s what we’re hoping for. It won’t be Sunday. We have an off-day there to play with, see how things manage the next few days." Dylan Bundy will be moved up to start Sunday. Thursday, 3:05 pm
    L, 5-1 @Tor
  • Steven Wright (shoulder) throws from 120 feet
    Steven Wright (shoulder) threw from 120 feet out on Wednesday.

    Advice: Wright is starting into a throwing program in Fort Myers, Florida. He has been sidelined since August 31 due to a bout of right shoulder bursitis and his status for the remainder of the season and postseason remains up in the air. Boston manager John Farrell would not commit to when the knuckleballer will begin to throw off the mound, though there's talk of it happening this weekend as the Red Sox are visiting the Rays in Tampa Bay. Wednesday, 6:03 pm
    L, 6-4 @NYY
  • Diaz surrenders Bautista homer to blow save
    Edwin Diaz blew his second save of the season when he surrendered a game-tying solo home run to Jose Baustia in the ninth inning of Wednesday's 2-1, 12-inning win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Diaz came on with two outs in the eighth inning as the M's looked to hang for a 1-0 victory. He fanned Josh Donaldson to close out that frame, then opened the ninth by striking out Edwin Encarnacion. No such luck next batter. Jose Bautista would make contact -- and then some -- with an epic game-tying shot. Diaz rebounded to record the final two outs in the ninth without issue and Seattle went on to win the game on a Robinson Cano sacrifice fly in the 12th inning. For the season, the flame-throwing 22-year-old Diaz has pitched to a 2.33 ERA and 80/15 K/BB ratio over 46 1/3 innings. He is now 16-for-18 in save chances. That ninth-inning run surrendered on Wednesday was the first run he has allowed since August 30. Wednesday, 5:46 pm
  • Sanchez limits Mariners to one run over six
    Aaron Sanchez pitched well in Wednesday's no-decision against the Mariners, surrendering one run on four hits over six innings.

    Advice: Sanchez struck out five and walked three on the afternoon. The only run to score over his six innings of work came home courtesy of an RBI single by Nori Aoki in the third inning. The score would remain 1-0 until the ninth, when Jose Bautista took Sanchez off the hook with a game-tying solo homer. For the season, Sanchez now holds a 3.12 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 145/58 K/BB ratio over 179 innings. He will do battle with the Orioles next time he toes the rubber. Wednesday, 5:13 pm
    W, 5-1 vs Bal
  • Sammy Solis (shoulder) tosses 25 pitches
    Sammy Solis (shoulder) threw a 25-pitch mound session on Wednesday.

    Advice: Solis reported no discomfort after the bullpen workout. He is not yet ready to face live hitters, but the hope is that another similar mound test or two will have him up-to-speed for the next phase of his rehab. The lefty reliever has been sidelined by left shoulder inflammation since August 17. Wednesday, 3:20 pm
  • Kevin Gausman gives up five to Red Sox
    Kevin Gausman was charged with five runs over 6 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Gausman wasn't nearly as sharp as he has been lately, as he gave up 10 hits -- including a pair of home runs -- while walking one. Orioles manager Buck Showalter probably left him in too long, as his 101st and final pitch of the night was a three-run homer served up to David Ortiz. Gausman entered the start having allowed just three runs over his last five outings. He'll face the Diamondbacks on Sunday. Tuesday, 8:10 pm
    L, 5-1 @Tor
  • Dellin Betances nails down 12th save Tuesday
    Dellin Betances tossed a 1-2-3 ninth inning Tuesday versus the Rays to record his 12th save of the season.

    Advice: Betances has been scuffling a bit of late, but he didn't have any issues in this one in disposing of the Rays in 16 pitches. His recent struggles have his ERA up to 2.79 ERA, but his 121/24 K/BB ratio over 71 innings remains ridiculous. Tuesday, 7:36 pm
  • Tanner Roark suffers tough-luck loss
    Tanner Roark was saddled with a tough-luck loss Tuesday after tossing seven frames of one-run ball against the Marlins.

    Advice: Roark struck out five while allowing just three hits and three walks, but Giancarlo Stanton got to him with a solo homer and that's all it took with Jose Fernandez dealing for the Fish. Roark has given up only four total runs over his last five starts, lowering his season ERA to 2.70. He'll face the Diamondbacks next time out. Tuesday, 6:34 pm
    W, 4-2 vs Ari
  • Farmer to start on Wednesday vs. Twins
    Buck Farmer will start for the Tigers on Wednesday against the Twins.

    Advice: It will be his first start at the major league level in 2016. Farmer has registered an underwhelming 4.07 ERA, 1.52 WHIP, and 25/16 K/BB ratio over 24 1/3 innings this year out of the Detroit bullpen. Tuesday, 2:26 pm
    W, 12-0 vs Cle
  • Marco Estrada dominates Mariners in win
    Marco Estrada allowed just one hit over seven scoreless innings and struck out eight in defeating the Mariners on Monday.

    Advice: Estrada was lifted after walking Leonys Martin on four pitches to start the eighth. The Jays got through that frame unscathed, but barely held on to win 3-2 in the ninth after Martin homered. Estrada is 9-9 with a 3.62 ERA. He's struck out 154 in 164 innings this year. During his fantastic 2015 season, he struck out just 131 in 181 innings. Monday, 10:52 pm
    W, 5-1 vs Bal
  • A.J. Ramos nails down save No. 38
    A.J. Ramos notched his 38th save of the season in Monday's win over the Nationals.

    Advice: It wasn't without a sweat, as Ramos allowed a leadoff double while trying to protect a one-run lead. However, the closer was then able to induce a fielder's choice to cut down the runner at third base followed by a couple flyouts. Ramos has allowed only one run over 10 appearances this month. Sep 19, 7:19 pm
    L, 12-1 vs NYM
  • Pomeranz on track to make next start
    Drew Pomeranz is on track to make his next scheduled start Friday against the Rays.

    Advice: Red Sox manager John Farrell acknowledged that the team is trying to determine if Pomeranz's workload has impacted his command, but they aren't ready to make a change yet. The southpaw has allowed nine runs in 5 2/3 innings over his last two starts. He's logged a career-high 164 1/3 innings this year. Sep 19, 2:35 pm

  • Wright (shoulder) resumes throwing
    Steven Wright (shoulder) has resumed a throwing program in Fort Myers, Florida.

    Advice: Wright hasn't pitched since August 31 due to right shoulder bursitis. The Red Sox hope to get a look at him throwing off a mound when the club travels to play the Rays this weekend, but he's obviously running out of time to contribute. Sep 19, 2:26 pm

  • Drew Pomeranz knocked around in no-decision
    Drew Pomeranz was knocked around in Sunday's no-decision against the Yankees, surrendering four runs on seven hits in only 3 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Pomeranz struck out three while walking two on the evening. He departed after surrendering a pair of runs in the fourth inning and with his club trailing 4-0, but the Red Sox offense was able to take him off the hook, while the Red Sox bullpen spun 5 1/3 innings of shutout baseball the rest of the way. He'll look to turn his season around when he squares off against the Rays in Tampa Bay on Friday. Sep 18, 8:48 pm

  • A.J. Ramos records 37th save
    A.J. Ramos bounced back from Friday's loss to pitch a scoreless ninth for his 37th save Sunday.

    Advice: The Marlins have been leaning heavily on Ramos lately; he's thrown 86 pitches the last six days. If they have a save chance tomorrow, it could go to David Phelps or Fernando Rodney. Sep 18, 2:27 pm
