  • Jorge Soler (side) expected back Sunday
    Jorge Soler (side) is expected to play on Sunday.

    Advice: Soler has played just twice in the past two weeks due to a side injury. He'll have to show he's healthy on Sunday in order to be part of the NLDS roster. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:31 pm

  • Schebler (hamstring) delivers as pinch-hitter
    Scott Schebler (hamstring) hit a game-tying infield single as a pinch-hitter in Thursday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Schebler didn't start again after tweaking his left hamstring Tuesday, but he came through with a cue shot with two outs and two strikes in the top of the ninth that tie the game. The Reds then lost the game in controversial fashion in the bottom of the frame. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:16 am

  • Seth Smith (foot) doesn't miss a start
    Seth Smith (foot) was hitless in three at-bats Thursday against the Athletics.

    Advice: Smith departed Wednesday's game after being hit on the foot by a pitch, but he didn't have to miss a start. The Mariners are slated to face righties the next two days, so Smith will be back in there. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:13 am

  • Orlando posts four-hit night in loss to Twins
    Paulo Orlando went 4-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored Thursday against the Twins.

    Advice: Orlando is finishing the 2016 season in style, as he's now got a seven-game hitting streak during which he's 14-for-27 with three doubles. The 30-year-old has been a pleasant surprise all around for the Royals, batting .307/.335/.410 in 125 games and forcing his way into everyday at-bats between right and center field. Orlando should once again vie for regular playing time in 2017. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:07 pm

  • Mikie Mahtook doubles, homers in win over CWS
    Mikie Mahtook went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Thursday's win over the White Sox.

    Advice: Mahtook took a Jose Quintana offering for a solo ride in the fourth inning. The dinger was his third of the season. While the 26-year-old outfielder is hitting just .199/.237/.295 over 176 at-bats, he has picked it up of late, notching two-hit efforts in three of his last four games.

  • Hicks has RBI double, run scored versus Sox
    Aaron Hicks went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: Hicks swatted the run-scoring double in the eighth inning to extend the Yankees' lead. It's been a disappointing year for the 26-year-old overall, batting .218/.277/.338 in 120 games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:54 pm

  • Wong (shoulder) returns with pinch-hit 3B
    Kolten Wong (shoulder) hit a pinch-hit leadoff triple in the bottom of the ninth inning Wednesday, but the Cardinals weren't able to drive him in and fell 2-1 to the Reds.

    Advice: Wong was held out of the starting lineup yet again with shoulder discomfort, but his swing looked free and easy as he launched a ball off the top of the right field wall at Busch Stadium. He flew around the bases before sliding feet-first into third. But that is where Wong would remain, with Reds closer Raisel Iglesias inducing two groundouts and a shallow outfield fly from the Cardinals' next three batters. Wong should be able to make a start or two over St. Louis' final four regular season games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:49 am

  • Hunter Renfroe homers again, knocks in four
    Hunter Renfroe went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and four RBI as the Padres edged the Dodgers 6-5 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Renfroe should have been up on July 21, not September 21, but at least he's used his very limited major league time to make a huge first impression; he's homered four times in his first five starts, and his two-run shot Wednesday sailed over the Western Metal Supply Co. building at Petco Park. That is the first time a player had done that in a live game. This all bodes well for Renfroe's chances of being penciled in as the Padres' everyday right fielder to open the 2017 season.

  • John Jaso hits for cycle as Pirates roll Cubs
    John Jaso hit for the cycle in Wednesday's 8-4 win over the Cubs.

    Advice: Jaso singled to lead off the third inning, socked a three-run home run in the fourth, notched an RBI double in the fifth and polished off his cycle with an RBI triple in the seventh. He finished the game 4-for-4 with five RBI at the dish. It was the first-ever cycle at PNC Park. For the season as a whole, Jaso is hitting .267/.348/.407 with seven homers and 40 RBI across 371 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:39 pm

  • Coghlan lifted with mild left ankle sprain
    Chris Coghlan left Wednesday's game against the Pirates due to a mild left ankle sprain.

    Advice: Coghlan injured himself when he ran into the outfield wall while tracking a fly ball in the fifth inning. He was subsequently replaced in left field by Albert Almora, but looks like he has avoided major injury. Consider Coghlan day-to-day moving forward. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:56 pm

  • Chris Coghlan exits with apparent leg injury
    Chris Coghlan was lifted from Wednesday's game against the Pirates due to an apparent left leg injury.

    Advice: Coghlan collided with the outfield wall while chasing down a fly ball in the fifth inning. He walked off under his own power while Albert Almora came on to replace him in left field. The Cubs should provide a further update on Coghlan's injury late Wednesday night. It didn't look like anything too serious. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:56 pm

  • Jabari Blash (finger) ruled out for remainder
    Jabari Blash (finger) has been shut down for the rest of the 2016 season.

    Advice: Blash has been sidelined by a sprained left middle finger since mid-August. He will rest his injured digit for the next 4-6 weeks. The Padres hope he will be able to play at some point during winter ball. In 71 at-bats with the major league team this season, the 27-year-old outfielder hit just .169/.298/.324 with three homers and five RBI. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:34 pm

  • Kolten Wong to test tender shoulder in BP
    Kolten Wong will test his injured shoulder in pregame batting practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: Wong did not play in Tuesday's game against the Reds and he's out of the starting lineup Wednesday, but it sounds like he should be available off the bench for the Wild Card-hunting Redbirds. Wong injured his shoulder last week in Chicago when he slipped in left field. He was given a cortisone injection Monday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:28 pm

  • Schebler out of lineup with hamstring injury
    Scott Schebler is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals due to left hamstring tightness.

    Advice: With Schebler hobbled, Hernan Iribarren is manning center field in his place. Iribarren is slated to hit second. Given the lateness of this injury on the schedule and the Reds' lack of contention, it is possible that Schebler could be finished for 2016. In 252 at-bats, the 25-year-old outfielder has slashed .266/.330/.437 with nine homers and 39 RBI. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:01 pm

  • Seth Smith exits Wed. after being hit in foot
    Seth Smith was lifted for a pinch-runner after being hit in the foot during Wednesday's game against the Astros.

    Advice: Smith was struck in the foot by a pitch in the top of the sixth inning. Ben Gamel subsequently came on to pinch-run for him. The Mariners should provide an update as to Smith's status later on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:25 pm

  • Reds claim Patrick Kivlehan from Padres
    Reds claimed OF Patrick Kivlehan off waivers from the Padres.

    Advice: Kivlehan has also spent time with the Triple-A affiliates of the Rangers, Mariners, and Padres in 2016. He is a .282/.344/.470 career hitter in the minors and the 26-year-old outfielder tallied 22 homers and 14 stolen bases in 123 games last season at Triple-A Tacoma. There's still some promise here.

  • Franklin Gutierrez broke blood vessels in eye
    Franklin Gutierrez broke some blood vessels in his left eye Wednesday while sneezing.

    Advice: Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times says the eye "looks pretty nasty," but Gutierrez is said to be available off the bench for Wednesday's afternoon series finale against the Astros. Norichika Aoki is starting in left field and Seth Smith is starting in right field. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:20 am

  • Tyler Holt (wrist) appears off bench Tuesday
    Tyler Holt (wrist) served as a pinch-runner and defensive replacement Tuesday at St. Louis.

    Advice: Holt hasn't started a game since being scratched Friday with a sore left wrist, though it doesn't sound like the wrist is much of a problem anymore. He is slashing just .235/.327/.296 in 104 games (33 starts) this season as a utility outfielder. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:54 am

  • Renfroe homers twice, drives in seven vs. LAD
    Hunter Renfroe went off in Tuesday's 7-1 win over the Dodgers, launching a three-run home run and a grand slam to finish with seven RBI.

    Advice: Renfroe spaced out his damage. He swatted a three-run home run off Kenta Maeda in the first inning, then went silent until the eighth. At which point, all the noise in the world. The 24-year-old outfielder connected to clear the bases for the grand slam against Louis Coleman, boosting the Padres to a 7-1 advantage in the process. For those disinclined to do the math, Renfroe accounted for all seven of the Padres' runs in the game with his pair of home runs. Those were his second and third career major league homers. All of this damage has come in Renfroe's first 17 big league at-bats. Not too shabby. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:02 pm
  • Jefry Marte clubs grand slam in win over A's
    Jefry Marte went 2-for-4 with a grand slam in Tuesday's 8-1 win over the A's

    Advice: Marte stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and nobody out in the fourth inning. Facing off against Daniel Mengden, he proceeded to launch a 405-foot bomb to dead central to jump the Angels to a 5-0 lead. That was more than enough for a game Ricky Nolasco. In addition to the granny, Marte also picked up a double. He has done a nice job in a complementary role this season, hitting .251/.307/.461 with 13 homers and 42 RBI over 243 at-bats.

  • Chris Coghlan drives in three runs Tuesday
    Chris Coghlan ripped a bases-clearing triple in Tuesday's win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Coghlan got the scoring going with his three-bagger in the second inning. He also added a single and a stolen base on the night. Coghlan really struggled for the A's but has regained his form back in Chicago, batting .271/.403/.417. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:24 pm

  • MRI shows no damage in Soler's right side
    An MRI taken Monday on the right side of Jorge Soler showed no major damage.

    Advice: Soler is hanging back in Chicago for now, but he should rejoin the Cubs for their final regular-season series this weekend in Cincinnati. This was the second MRI on his right side, which has been causing Soler discomfort for the last two weeks. It sounds like a relatively minor oblique issue. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:44 pm

  • Renfroe swats first big league homer Saturday
    Hunter Renfroe went 2-for-4, scored twice and hit his first major league home run on Saturday versus the Giants.

    Advice: He launched a solo homer off Madison Bumgarner in the fourth inning. He doubled and scored in the sixth. Renfroe hit 30 home runs at Triple-A this season. The 24-year-old former first round draft pick is getting his first cup of coffee in the majors this month. He will likely work his way into the Padres' starting lineup early next season.

  • Schebler collects three hits, two runs scored
    Scott Schebler went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in a win over the Brewers on Saturday.

    Advice: The outfielder had a double to go with two singles in the contest. The 25-year-old had a terrible start to the year, leading to his demotion in early May, but he's making up for it with a strong finish. Schebler is now hitting .320 in September with a homer, 11 RBI and 11 runs scored this month. He's batting .256/.322/.420 overall. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:53 pm

  • Mahtook homers in loss to Red Sox
    Mikie Mahtook went 2-for-4 with a solo homer against the Red Sox on Friday.

    Advice: Mahtook’s second-inning homer against Drew Pomeranz was the only offense of the night for the Rays. The 26-year-old is seeing most of the playing time in right field with Steven Souza and Nick Franklin sidelined, but there’s not much to get excited about in fantasy leagues here. Mahtook is batting just .182/.226/.253 with two homers and 10 RBI over 57 games this season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:10 pm

    Padres designated OF Patrick Kivlehan for assignment.

    Advice: In 16 at-bats with the big league club this season, Kivlehan recorded four hits, including his first major league home run. In a larger sample size, the 26-year-old outfielder slashed .254/.302/.416 with 12 homers and 49 RBI over 370 at-bats for the Triple-A teams of the Rangers, Mariners and Padres. The former two teams both designated him for assignment before he landed with the Padres. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:20 pm

  • Padres promote Hunter Renfroe from El Paso
    Padres purchased the contract of OF Hunter Renfroe from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Renfroe was one of the top hitters in the Pacific Coast League this summer, slashing .306/.336/.557 with 30 homers and 105 RBI in 133 games for the El Paso Chihuahuas, whose season ended Tuesday in the Triple-A championship. The plan probably calls for him to make three or four starts over the Padres' final 11 games, which doesn't offer much fantasy appeal. Renfroe, the 13th overall pick in the 2013 MLB June Amateur Draft, will challenge for a starting job with San Diego leading into 2017. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:05 pm
  • Padres calling up Renfroe, Margot and others
    Padres manager Andy Green confirmed late Tuesday that the club is calling up prospects Hunter Renfroe, Manuel Margot, Austin Hedges, and Carlos Asuaje.

    Advice: We were hoping this might happen three weeks ago so that Renfroe and Margot -- both top-100 prospects -- might be of some fantasy use, but the El Paso Chihuahuas made a run all the way to the Triple-A championship before falling to the Yankees' Scranton/Wilkes-Barre affiliate on Tuesday night in Memphis. Renfroe, 24, batted .306/.336/.557 with 30 home runs and 105 RBI in 133 games this season at the Triple-A level. Margot, 21, hit .304/.351/.426 with six home runs and 30 stolen bases in 124 games. They'll both be appearing in the majors for the first time. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:06 am
  • Yankees activate OF Hicks from 15-day DL
    Yankees activated OF Aaron Hicks from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Hicks has been out since August 31 with a Grade 2 sprain of his right hamstring, but he'll make his return Tuesday against the Rays. He'll start in right field and bat second against left-hander Drew Smyly. Hicks is batting just .213/.273/.330 with seven homers over 112 games this season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:19 pm
