  • Hahn doubtful to make another start in 2014
    Jesse Hahn is doubtful to get a start this month.

    Advice: MLB.com's Corey Brock suspects that the Padres will use the rookie right-hander in a long relief role the rest of the way. Hahn has registered 114 1/3 innings this season between the minors and majors -- well above the 69 innings he threw in 2013. San Diego is being extra careful with the 25-year-old. Dump him in redraft leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Braves recall Joey Terdoslavich from Triple-A
    Braves recalled OF Joey Terdoslavich from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Terdoslavich was hitting .256/.337/.385 in 569 plate appearances this season at the Triple-A level. The 25-year-old can play first base and both corner outfield spots but probably won't get much playing time in Atlanta. Rotoworld.com

    Brewers recalled LHP Chasen Shreve from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Shreve allowed one run over five innings of relief earlier this season out of the Atlanta bullpen. He's back up with rosters expanding to serve as left-handed depth. Rotoworld.com

  • Braves recall Juan Jaime from Triple-A
    Braves recalled RHP Juan Jaime from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Jaime owns a 2.25 ERA and 13/5 K/BB ratio in eight appearances this season at the major league level. He'll give the Braves some extra bullpen depth down the stretch and try to prove himself worthy of a postseason roster spot. Of course, Atlanta has to make the playoffs first. Rotoworld.com

  • Brewers activate Wei-Chung Wang from DL
    Brewers activated LHP Wei-Chung Wang from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Wang missed nearly two months with discomfort in his left shoulder. The 22-year-old Rule 5 Draft pick has struggled mightily this season at the major league level and probably won't see many high-leverage appearances down the stretch. Rotoworld.com

  • Brewers activate Garza (oblique) from the DL
    Brewers activated RHP Matt Garza from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Garza will return to the Brewers' starting rotation on Wednesday at Wrigley Field after missing about a month with a left oblique strain. He was in a groove before the injury and should be a decent source of fantasy value down the stretch. The 30-year-old righty has a 3.58 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 104/43 K/BB ratio in 145 2/3 innings this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Brewers recall Jimmy Nelson for Mon. start
    Brewers recalled RHP Jimmy Nelson from High-A Brevard County.

    Advice: Nelson will start for the Brewers on Monday at Wrigley Field but could be moved to the bullpen after that with Matt Garza (oblique) due back from the disabled list on Wednesday. Nelson is 2-5 with a 4.10 in nine starts this season as a rookie and makes for a risky fantasy streamer against the rejuvenated Cubs. Rotoworld.com

  • Brewers recall Logan Schafer from Triple-A
    Brewers recalled OF Logan Schafer to Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Schafer will give the Brewers some outfield depth for the stretch run. He is a pretty good defender but has hit just .210/.280/.325 in 211 career major league games. Rotoworld.com

  • Denorfia (neck) goes 0-for-4 in return Sun.
    Chris Denorfia (neck) went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in his return to action on Sunday.

    Advice: Denorfia had been out since Tuesday because of stiffness in his neck. The 34-year-old outfielder is batting just .224/.250/.286 in 52 plate appearances since being traded to the Mariners at the July 31 deadline. Rotoworld.com

  • Ellsbury (ankle) hits pinch-hit double Sun.
    Jacoby Ellsbury (ankle) hit a pinch-hit double in the Yankees' loss to the Blue Jays on Sunday.

    Advice: Ellsbury was held out of the Yankees' starting lineup for a second straight game after injuring his left ankle on a slide into home plate Friday. His double Sunday was obviously a positive sign, but he's going to undergo an MRI so that the Yankees can determine whether he's ready to return to full-time duty in center field. Rotoworld.com

  • Indians and Royals game suspended in 10th
    Sunday's series finale between the Indians and Royals has been suspended in the 10th inning due to inclement weather and will resume on September 22 in Cleveland.

    Advice: Just before play was suspended, Lonnie Chisenhall delivered a pinch-hit two-out, two-run double in the 10th inning to give the Tribe a 4-2 lead. In the meanwhile, the Royals will remain a 1/2 game ahead of the Tigers in the American League Central. Rotoworld.com

  • T.J. House terrific but denied victory Sunday
    T.J. House was terrific on Sunday, hurling seven innings of one-run ball in a no-decision against the Royals in Kansas City.

    Advice: House struck out five on the night without issuing a free pass. The only damage against him came on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Alex Gordon in the first inning, but he managed to shut down the Royals completely the rest of the night. House left with a 2-1 lead, but Cody Allen was unable to hang on in the ninth inning. He'll look to further improve upon a 3.92 ERA and 1.44 WHIP when he does battle against the White Sox on Friday.

  • Danny Duffy fans six Indians in no-decision
    Danny Duffy delivered a strong start in a no-decision against the Indians on Sunday, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits over 6 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Duffy struck out six on the night while walking three. He certainly pitched well enough to earn his ninth victory in this one, but his defense and the offense behind him didn't do him any favors. He'll carry an outstanding 2.42 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 108/50 K/BB ratio into Saturday's start against the Yankees in New York. Rotoworld.com

  • Hahn throws two innings in relief vs. Dodgers
    Jesse Hahn pitched two innings in relief Sunday, allowing one run against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Hahn wasn't terribly successful, giving up four hits and two walks in his two innings. At 72 innings, the Padres are aiming to limit his innings the rest of the way. He can be dropped in redraft leagues if he hasn't been already. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:11 pm
  • Wei-Yin Chen fans seven Twins for 14th win
    Wei-Yin Chen struck out seven while allowing four runs over 6 2/3 innings in Sunday's win over the Twins.

    Advice: Chen gave up a two-run homer to Trevor Plouffe in the fourth, one of eight hits allowed on the afternoon. Chen has been plenty good this season, owning a 3.83 ERA through 26 starts, but the fact that he's among the league leaders in wins at 14-4 speaks to the fluky nature of the statistic. Even so, Chen and the Orioles will surely take it. The left-hander will square off with the Rays in Tampa on Friday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:11 pm
  • Jacoby Ellsbury (ankle) out again on Sunday
    Jacoby Ellsbury (ankle) remained out of the Yankees' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's now missed two straight games after injuring his left ankle on Friday. The Yankees are off Monday, so Ellsbury could be ready to go Tuesday following three days of rest. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:44 am
  • Matt Garza (oblique) to return on Wednesday
    Matt Garza (oblique) has been cleared to rejoin the Brewers' rotation Wednesday versus the Cubs.

    Advice: Garza, out since August 4 with a left oblique strain, threw all of his pitches in a successful simulated game Friday evening in San Francisco. Jimmy Nelson was optioned to the minors on Saturday afternoon and will return as a reliever when rosters expand, freeing up a rotation spot for Garza. Rotoworld.com

  • Padres recall Jesse Hahn from Double-A
    Padres recalled RHP Jesse Hahn from Double-A San Antonio.

    Advice: Hahn is near his innings limit, so the Padres plan to use him in relief from here on out. The rookie boasts a 2.96 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 65 strikeouts in 70 frames this season. He's a big part of San Diego's future. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 2:31 pm
  • Brewers option Jimmy Nelson to High-A
    Brewers optioned RHP Jimmy Nelson to High-A Brevard County.

    Advice: It's a procedural move, as Nelson will be back to start on Monday against the Cubs. However, his time in the rotation may be coming to and end soon with Matt Garza (oblique) due back from the DL this week. The rookie right-hander is 2-5 with a 4.10 ERA in nine starts. Rotoworld.com

  • Jacoby Ellsbury not in lineup on Saturday
    Jacoby Ellsbury (ankle) is not in the Yankees starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Ellsbury was still hobbling around the clubhouse on Saturday after injuring his left ankle while sliding into home plate in the ninth inning on Friday. With an off day scheduled on Monday, the team may just opt to play things cautiously and rest him on Sunday as well to avoid further aggravation. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:59 am
  • Ellsbury (ankle) hopeful of playing Saturday
    Jacoby Ellsbury (ankle) remains hopeful that he'll be able to play on Saturday.

    Advice: Ellsbury injured his left ankle while sliding into home plate during the ninth inning of Friday's victory over the Blue Jays. He'll test it to see how it feels on Saturday, but expect the speedy outfielder to suit up and give it a go for the Yankees. Rotoworld.com

  • Ellsbury homers again; suffers ankle injury
    Jacoby Ellsbury went 2-for-5 with a triple and a two-run homer in Friday's 6-3 win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: The red-hot Ellsbury now has four homers and nine RBI over his last five games. Unfortunately, he hurt his left ankle on a slide into home plate in the ninth inning. Tests came back negative, but he was limping after the game and might not be able to play Saturday. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:57 pm
  • Matt Garza throws successful simulated game
    Matt Garza (oblique) threw a successful simulated game on Friday, and was able to use all of his pitches effectively.

    Advice: The Brewers have been hopeful that he would be able to rejoin the rotation without needing a minor league rehab assignment, and this is a huge step in that direction. With Mike Fiers pitching exceptionally, it's anticipated that he will bump Jimmy Nelson to the bullpen upon his return. Rotoworld.com

  • Ellsbury adds two more hits, two more steals
    Jacoby Ellsbury had another multi-hit game, going 2-for-4 with a pair of stolen bases in Wednesday's win against the Tigers.

    Advice: Ellsbury was coming off of a two-homer night against the Tigers on Tuesday and has now notched back-to-back-to-back multi-hit games. Ellsbury has 37 steals in 42 attempts with 13 home runs, 61 RBI, and a .285/.347/.423 triple slash line. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:59 pm
  • Wei-Yin Chen optioned to Gulf Coast League
    Orioles optioned LHP Wei-Yin Chen to the Gulf Coast League Orioles.

    Advice: It's just a paper move, as Chen will rejoin the rotation on Sunday. Steve Clevenger has taken his spot on the roster. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 12:20 pm
  • Nelson gives up 2 ER; headed to bullpen?
    Jimmy Nelson served up four runs -- two earned -- in five innings Tuesday as the Brewers fell to the Padres 4-1.

    Advice: Nelson surrendered a one-out solo homer to Abraham Almonte in the first inning, and then the Brewers pecked away at him for three runs in the third. With Matt Garza (left oblique strain) nearing a return, it's possible that Nelson will be shipped to the bullpen to make room in the rotation. The rookie right-hander is 2-5 with a 4.10 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. Rotoworld.com

  • Chen fails to make it through the fifth frame
    Wei-Yin Chen got a no-decision despite failing to make it through the fifth inning as the Orioles defeated the Rays 4-2 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Chen didn't have his best stuff on Tuesday, failing to record a strikeout on any of the 22 batters he faced. Overall, he yielded seven hits and three walks. He was lucky to have only allowed the two runs, as Brad Brach bailed him out to finish off the fifth inning. Chen has a 3.76 ERA, a 1.25 WHIP, and a 109/28 K/BB ratio. The lefty, still 13-4, will match up against the Twins at home on Tuesday in his next start. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:37 pm
  • Duffy surrenders one run over 6 2/3 innings
    Danny Duffy allowed one run over 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Twins on Tuesday.

    Advice: Duffy and Ricky Nolasco were locked in a pitcher's duel, naturally, that kept Duffy from earning his ninth win. The southpaw gave up four hits and walked two in the outing and actually left in line for the loss before Alex Gordon's walk-off home run. As it is, Duffy remains 8-11 with a 2.47 ERA and 1.07 WHIP heading into Sunday's start against the Indians. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:18 pm
  • Ellsbury's two homers not enough for Yankees
    Jacoby Ellsbury homered twice, both of the solo variety, but the Yankees were unable to overcome the Tigers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Ellsbury finished 3-for-4 on the night, homering the first time in the fifth and the second time in the eighth, both against Rick Porcello. The center fielder is coming off of a 3-for-5 (with a homer) performance on Monday as well. Overall, Ellsbury has 13 home runs, 60 RBI, 35 steals, and a .284/.347/.422 slash line in the first year of his seven-year deal with the Yankees. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:06 pm
  • Matt Garza might not need rehab assignment
    Matt Garza (oblique) could rejoin the Brewers' rotation without making a rehab start.

    Advice: It was reported earlier Tuesday that Garza's next step would be to begin a rehab assignment, but apparently it might not be necessary. The Brewers are expected to officially make a decision Wednesday regarding the right-hander's next step, which will either be a rehab start or a simulated game. Either way, he could be activated sometime next week. Jimmy Nelson is likely to be bumped to the bullpen. Rotoworld.com

  • Garza (oblique) nearing rehab assignment
    Matt Garza's (oblique) next step is to begin a rehab assignment.

    Advice: It's not clear when or where that rehab assignment will begin, but Garza threw a bullpen session on Sunday and that was apparently enough to convince the Brewers he was ready for game action. The veteran right-hander has been on the shelf since early August with a left oblique strain. Rotoworld.com

    Tuesday, 4:35 pm
  • Jacoby Ellsbury hits 11th homer
    Jacoby Ellsbury went 3-for-5 with his 11th homer and three RBI against the Royals on Monday.

    Advice: That the Yankees offense has been so mediocre has resulted in Ellsbury being a modest disappointment for fantasy purposes -- he has just 59 runs scored in 126 games -- but he has been a nice player with his .280-11-58-35 line. He's also not one of those basestealers slowing down as the year drags on; he has seven steals in August. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:47 pm
  • Matt Garza (oblique) throws successful 'pen
    Matt Garza (oblique) threw a successful bullpen session on Sunday.

    Advice: Garza was able to mix in all of his pitches and didn't feel anything in his strained oblique. He's expected to go harder in his next session on Tuesday and looks to be nearing a minor league rehab assignment. Rotoworld.com

  • Ellsbury, Gardner, McCann out of lineup Sun.
    Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the Yankees' lineup Sunday.
