  • Logan Verrett likely to join Mets on Tue.
    Logan Verrett is likely to be called up from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, reports Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.

    Advice: It's a logical move, as there's no immediate role for Rafael Montero after he threw 100 pitches over five scoreless innings on Monday. Verrett was optioned to Triple-A earlier this month after posting a 5.36 ERA and 59/40 K/BB ratio over 85 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:38 am
  • Dillon Gee holds down Yankees in win
    Dillon Gee held the Yankees to one run over six innings in a victory Monday.

    Advice: Gee's rotation spot was in doubt for a spell, but then setbacks from Kris Medlen and Mike Minor took away Kansas City's alternatives. He's done pretty well his last three times out, allowing a total of five runs in 18 1/3 innings. He's still a risky play in AL-only leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:16 pm
  • Reds option RHP Smith to Triple-A
    Reds optioned RHP Josh Smith to Triple-A Louisville.

    Advice: Smith threw 69 pitches in relief on Sunday, so the Reds didn't want to be short-handed in their bullpen to begin the week. He should be back in September. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:38 pm

  • Strop (knee) throws bullpen session
    Pedro Strop (knee) reported feeling good after throwing 25 pitches in a bullpen session on Monday.

    Advice: Strop underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee two weeks ago, but is already making encouraging progress. The original expectation was that he'd miss 4-6 weeks, but he appears primed to beat that timetable. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:33 pm

  • Padres option LHP Baumann to Triple-A
    Padres optioned LHP Buddy Baumann to Triple-A El Paso.

  • Padres activate Morrow from paternity leave
    Padres activated RHP Brandon Morrow from the paternity leave list.

  • O's option McFarland to Triple-A
    Orioles optioned LHP T.J. McFarland to Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: It was announced on Sunday that McFarland was designated for assignment, so this presumably means that he passed through optional waivers. The southpaw owns an ugly 6.93 ERA and 7/10 K/BB ratio over 24 2/3 innings in the majors this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:45 pm

  • Boshers (elbow) set for rehab assignment
    Buddy Boshers (elbow) is set to begin a rehab assignment Monday with Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: Boshers has been on the disabled list since August 11 because of discomfort in his left elbow. An MRI taken two weeks ago showed no major structural damage and he should be back in the Minnesota bullpen within the next 5-7 days. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:48 pm

  • Mariners sign Al Alburquerque to minors deal
    Mariners signed RHP Al Alburquerque to a minor league contract.

    Advice: This deal was actually agreed upon last week. Alburquerque was released by the Angels on August 13 after posting a pedestrian 3.80 ERA, 1.56 WHIP, and 26/13 K/BB ratio across 23 2/3 innings with Triple-A Salt Lake. The 30-year-old right-hander is now working out of the bullpen at Triple-A Tacoma. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:51 am

  • Orioles bring back reliever Tommy Hunter
    Orioles signed RHP Tommy Hunter to a one-year contract.

    Advice: Hunter was released by the Indians last week after struggling on a rehab assignment. He held a decent 3.74 ERA and 17/5 K/BB ratio over 21 1/3 innings before his back injury, though, and is worth a shot at the prorated veteran minimum. Hunter, of course, spent 2011-15 with the Orioles. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:12 am

  • Suarez gives up three runs in 4 1/3 innings
    Albert Suarez got hit with a loss after giving up three runs in 4 1/3 innings to the Braves on Saturday.

    Advice: All of the damage came on a three-run bomb by Matt Kemp in the fourth inning. Suarez fanned five batters while giving up two free passes and five base hits. He is now 3-2 with a 4.35 ERA in 60 innings split between the rotation and the bullpen. He has also been called up and sent down to Triple-A multiple times this year. He is no more than a shaky streamer in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:50 pm
  • Giants recall Albert Suarez to start Saturday
    Giants recalled RHP Albert Suarez from Triple-A Sacramento.

    Advice: The 26-year-old hurler has appeared in 16 games for the Giants this season (six starts), compiling a 4.20 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 40/17 K/BB ratio. He could be worth a look as a streaming option against the Braves on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:11 pm

  • Gee yields three runs in 5 1/3 frames
    Dillon Gee was charged with three runs in 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Marlins on Wednesday.

    Advice: Gee hung zeroes on the scoreboard until the 6th inning when all three runs scored. After getting the first batter out he allowed four consecutive singles to bring in two runs. He was then relieved by Peter Moylan, who gave up a sacrifice fly to let in the third run charged to Gee. The one bad inning spoiled what was shaping up to be an impressive outing. He now has a 5-7 record and 4.55 ERA with 80 strikeouts and 30 walks in 99 innings. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:19 pm
  • Hunter (back) won't return until September

    Advice: Hunter, out since mid-July with a non-displaced fracture in his lower back, has allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks over four innings since beginning a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Columbus earlier this month. The Indians want him to get more work in the minors before bringing him back. The 30-year-old owns a 3.74 ERA and 17/5 K/BB ratio over 21 1/3 innings this season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:24 pm
