  • Mat Latos shut down for remainder of 2014
    Mat Latos (elbow) has been shut down for the remainder of the 2014 season.

    Advice: Latos, who has missed a large chunk of the 2014 campaign due to various injuries, is struggling to recover from a bone bruise in his right elbow. He'll finish the season 5-5 with a 3.25 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 74/23 K/BB ratio over 102 1/3 innings. Daniel Corcino will get the ball in his place again on Wednesday against the Brewers. Rotoworld.com

  • Jay Bruce clobbers two homers to down Cards
    Jay Bruce clobbered a pair of home runs and drove home three, leading the Reds to a 7-2 victory over the Cardinals in St. Louis.

    Advice: Bruce opened up the game's scoring with a solo blast off opposing starter Lance Lynn in the fourth inning, chipped in an RBI single in the sixth and added his second long ball in the eighth inning. It's been a disappointing year for the 27-year-old slugger, hitting just .217/.283/.377 with 18 homers and 65 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:12 pm
  • Todd Frazier belts 27th home run in victory
    Todd Frazier belted his 27th home run of the season on Sunday, helping to power the Reds past the Cardinals.

    Advice: The 28-year-old is having an outstanding season at the plate, slashing .274/.335/.453 with 27 homers, 76 RBI and 20 stolen bases. While a full repeat shouldn't be counted on for next season, Frazier has likely worked his way into the first few rounds of fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Lance Lynn K's nine in loss to Reds on Sunday
    Lance Lynn racked up nine strikeouts in a losing effort on Sunday, surrendering three runs on four hits and a pair of walks over his six innings of work.

    Advice: Most of the damage against him in the ballgame came via the long ball, with Jay Bruce and Todd Frazier each smacking solo home runs. He'll head into his final start of the regular season against the Brewers on Saturday with a 15-10 record, 2.73 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 176/71 K/BB ratio over 197 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:44 pm
  • Burnett yields six runs over 4 1/3 versus A's
    A.J. Burnett was wild Sunday, walking six while allowing six runs over 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Athletics.

    Advice: Burnett gave up just three hits, but the six free passes -- including one with the bases loaded -- did him in. It's nothing new for Burnett, who has a MLB-most 93 walks allowed this year. His teammates managed to save him from taking his 18th loss, but Burnett's ERA is up to 4.57 with the rough outing. He's got one final start left this year, and that will come Saturday against the Braves. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:31 pm
  • McHugh turns in quality start in win over M's
    Collin McHugh allowed three runs over six innings in a win over the Mariners on Sunday.

    Advice: McHugh gave up just four hits on the afternoon, with Michael Saunders' two-run homer doing most of the damage against him. McHugh walked just one while striking out six. McHugh still hasn't lost since the month of July, and he's now 11-9 with a 2.73 ERA on the year. The right-hander has one final start left in his stellar 2014 campaign, facing the Mets on Saturday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:03 pm
  • Guyer drives in two in loss to White Sox
    Brandon Guyer went 2-for-5 with a run scored and two RBI in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Guyer doubled and scored in the sixth inning, and he added a two-run single in the ninth as the Rays tried to come back late. The runs batted in were Guyer's first since August 29. The 28-year-old is hitting .271/.335/.372 in his first extensive look with the Rays. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:43 pm
  • Astros shut Dallas Keuchel down for season
    Dallas Keuchel has been shut down for the season.

    Advice: Keuchel has tossed an even 200 innings this season, topping his previous career high of 177 2/3 frames. The left-hander went out in style, throwing eight innings of one-run ball versus the Mariners Saturday to lower his ERA to 2.93. It was a breakout season for Keuchel. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:40 am
  • Darin Downs (oblique) likely done for season
    Darin Downs is likely done for the season after aggravating a right oblique injury.

    Advice: Downs missed time last month with the ailment and apparently sustained a setback during an appearance Friday. The left-hander's season concludes with a 5.45 ERA and 1.36 WHIP across 45 appearances. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:06 am
  • Street retires Rangers in order for 39th save
    Huston Street worked a 1-2-3 ninth inning to pick up his 15th save as an Angel (his 39th overall) in Saturday's victory over the Rangers.

    Advice: It was only the third appearance Street had made dating back to September 7, as the closer had been bothered by a tight right hamstring. The Rangers didn't mount much of a threat against him. Street is 15-for-17 in save chances as an Angel with a 1.50 ERA. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:11 pm
  • Dallas Keuchel brilliant in win over Mariners
    Dallas Keuchel scattered seven hits while pitching eight innings of one-run ball against the Mariners on Saturday.

    Advice: Keuchel was spotted a four-run lead by the time the first inning was over, thanks to early home runs by Chris Carter and Alex Presley. He did not squander the cushion. Other than an RBI single by Robinson Cano in the third, Keuchel sported what was mostly a clean line. He allowed struck out eight and walked one while scattering seven hits. The victory bumped him up to a 12-9 record this season. Keuchel has been one of the biggest surprises in the game this season, posting a 2.93 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and a 146/48 K/BB ratio over 200 innings. This was likely his final start of 2014, but he won't sneak up on anyone next spring. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:02 pm
  • Welington Castillo (ribs) not in Cubs lineup
    Welington Castillo (ribs) is not in the Cubs starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Castillo exited Friday's game in the first inning after sustaining a right rib contusion. John Baker will get the call behind the dish and hit eighth against Roberto Hernandez on Saturday. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:34 am
  • Alex Avila (concussion) remains out of lineup
    Alex Avila (concussion) remains out of the Tigers starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Avila continues to battle concussion-like symptoms and was disoriented when attempting to take swings on Thursday and Friday. Bryan Holaday will take his place behind the dish on Saturday and will continue to share time with rookie James McCann until Avila returns. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:25 am
  • Kipnis (hamstring) could return this weekend
    Jason Kipnis (hamstring) could rejoin the Indians lineup this weekend.

    Advice: Kipnis sustained the injury in the eighth inning of Thursday's game and was held out Friday as a precautionary measure. It comes at an unfortunate time for fantasy owners, but consider him day-to-day for now. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 6:30 am
  • Domonic Brown dealing with sprained hand
    Domonic Brown was a late scratch to the Phillies starting lineup on Friday due to a sprained right hand.

    Advice: He should be considered day-to-day for now, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the Phillies take things extremely cautiously with him down the stretch. The 27-year-old is hitting a disappointing .237/.288/.356 on the season with 10 homers and 61 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 5:50 am
  • Avila tries to swing bat, feels 'disoriented'
    Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said that Alex Avila (concussion) felt "disoriented" when he tried taking some swings Thursday and Friday.

    Advice: Avila is sitting out Friday for the 10th time in 17 games this month due to post-concussion issues, and it sounds like, if anything, his symptoms are getting worse. With just over a week left in the season, he might not make it back. James McCann is getting the start behind the dish Friday, and he'll share time with Bryan Holaday while Avila is out. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 2:12 pm
  • Welington Castillo has rib contusion
    Welington Castillo has been diagnosed with a left rib contusion.

    Advice: Castillo exited Friday's game in the first inning with the injury. He'll be re-evaluated before it's determined how much time he might miss. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 1:12 pm
  • Alex Avila (concussion) out again Friday
    Alex Avila (concussion) remained out of the Tigers' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Avila has dealt with post-concussion issues for a good chunk of September, starting just nine of a possible 16 games. He'll miss the first game of the huge three-game set against the Royals and it's not clear when he'll return to action. James McCann is behind the dish Friday. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 12:56 pm
  • Welington Castillo exits with back injury
    Welington Castillo left Friday's game against the Dodgers with an apparent back injury.

    Advice: Castillo appeared to tweak his back in the top of the first inning and was pinch-hit for by Rafael Lopez in the bottom of the frame. The Cubs should have more on Castillo's status later Friday. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 12:02 pm
  • Padres could ease Benoit into closer role
    The Padres could ease Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) back into game action before using him in save situations.

    Advice: Benoit is expected to be available out of the bullpen starting on Friday after missing the last few weeks with a shoulder issue. With the veteran reliever likely to pitch in a low-leverage situation or two before returning to the ninth inning, fantasy owners shouldn't drop Kevin Quackenbush just yet. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 3:56 pm
  • OF Brown has 2 hits in win agaisnt Padres
    Domonic Brown went 2-for-4 with a run scored in the Phillies' win over the Padres on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's been a long, lonely, treacherous season for the 2013 revelation. But he just finished off a solid series at Petco, going 4-for-11 (.363) with a homer and a steal. Hey, his owners will take whatever they can get at this point. Brown, slashing .234/.286/.353, is very likely playing out the string on his Phillies' career. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported earlier this month that the Phillies will look to trade Brown this winter. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:37 pm
  • Avila (head) out of Tigers' lineup again Wed.
    Alex Avila (head) is absent from the Tigers' starting lineup again on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Avila hasn't played since taking a foul tip off his mask on Sunday. He has a history of concussions, so the Tigers are treating the situation carefully. Bryan Holaday will start at catcher against the Twins. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 1:49 pm
  • Jay Bruce getting a breather Wednesday
    Jay Bruce is not in the Reds' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Manager Bryan Price evidently wasn't pleased with his team's effort during a one-hit shutout Tuesday, and he's responded by benching every regular. Wednesday's starter for the Cubs, Kyle Hendricks, makes for a fine streaming option. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 12:47 pm
  • SP Burnett coughs up 4 ER to Padres in loss
    A.J. Burnett coughed up five runs -- four earned -- in 5 2/3 innings Tuesday as the Phillies fell to the Padres.

    Advice: Burnett struck out four, walked four, and gave up eight hits, one of which was a two-run homer by Alexi Amarista. For whatever reason, Burnett had all kinds of trouble with San Diego's slap-hitting infielder. This start was actually a bit better than his most recent work, as the veteran had gone 2-7 with a 5.68 ERA in his last nine starts. Burnett's next outing takes place in Oakland on Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:26 pm
  • Lynn holds Brewers to one run in no-decision
    Lance Lynn held the Brewers to just one run over seven innings but settled for a no-decision Tuesday.

    Advice: Lynn gave up just five hits and a walk on the evening, with Gerardo Parra's solo home run in the fourth inning serving as the Brewers' only run against him. He exited in line for his 16th win before a Trevor Rosenthal blown save left him without a hand in the decision. Still, it was another terrific outing from the 27-year-old. Lynn owns a 15-9 record and 2.68 ERA heading into Sunday's contest against the Reds. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:27 pm
  • Benoit (shoulder) shooting for Friday return
    Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) could rejoin the Padres' bullpen on Friday.

    Advice: Benoit threw a bullpen session Sunday with no issues and will throw another 'pen session Wednesday. If that goes well, he'll be cleared to return to action. It remains to be seen whether the reliever will immediately regain his closer job, but he certainly needs to be owned in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 4:15 pm
  • Mat Latos (elbow) plays catch with no issues
    Mat Latos (elbow) played catch with no issues on Tuesday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's thrown since he was scratched from Friday's start with a bone bruise in his right elbow. Reds manager Bryan Price indicated over the weekend that Latos is unlikely to return this season, and that's probably still the case given how little time is left. Still, it seems like the door hasn't been shut yet. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 3:54 pm
  • Avila (head) out of DET lineup again Tuesday
    Alex Avila (head) is out of the Tigers' starting lineup again on Tuesday night.

    Advice: Avila took a foul tip off his mask on Sunday, so he was held out Monday and Bryan Holaday will get another start behind the plate Tuesday versus the Twins. Avila has a history of concussions, so the Tigers are going to play it safe with him down the stretch. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 1:42 pm
  • McHugh exits game after taking comebacker
    Collin McHugh left Monday's start versus the Indians with a bruised left forearm.

    Advice: McHugh took a comebacker off the bat of Lonnie Chisenhall to force his exit. He was in the midst of another excellent outing, yielding just one unearned run on five hits and no walks while striking out seven. The Astros expect McHugh to be ready for his next start. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:45 pm
  • Alex Avila (head) not in Monday's lineup
    Alex Avila (head) is not in Monday's lineup against the Twins.

    Advice: Avila left Sunday's game with lightheadedness after taking a foul tip off the mark. The Tigers aren't going to take any chances, given his history. Bryan Holaday will start behind the plate. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 1:28 pm
  • Keuchel limits Angels to one run over seven
    Dallas Keuchel limited the Angels to one run over seven innings in a win Sunday.

    Advice: Keuchel was nearly unhittable, giving up just three hits on the afternoon. Two of those came in the eighth inning, when a Gordon Beckham double and David Freese RBI single chased him from the game. Still, he was good enough for his 11th win, quite a feat on a 65-win Astros club. Keuchel has a 3.00 ERA heading into Friday's start against the Mariners. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 14, 5:47 pm
  • Alex Avila leaves game with lightheadedness
    Alex Avila left Sunday's game against the Indians with lightheadedness.

    Advice: Avila took yet another foul tip off his mask in Sunday's contest. While he didn't display concussion-like symptoms, the Tigers opted to play things cautiously given his history. He is likely to receive an off-day on Monday as well. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 14, 4:39 pm
  • Frazier hits 26th home run in loss to Brewers
    Todd Frazier hit his 26th home run in Sunday's loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: Frazier was one of the few Reds batters able to do much of anything against Brewers starter Matt Garza, hitting the solo shot in the sixth inning. It's been a strong year for the 28-year-old, who has a career high 26 home runs, 75 RBI, 79 runs scored and 20 stolen bases. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 14, 3:20 pm
  • Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) nearing a return
    Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Sunday.

    Advice: He's expected to need only one additional 'pen session after that before being cleared to return to action. It's not clear whether Benoit will immediately regain his closer job or be eased back into things, but fantasy owners should scoop him up now if they're in need of saves. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 14, 8:05 am
  • Mat Latos (elbow) likely done for the season
    Reds manager Bryan Price indicated Saturday that Mat Latos (elbow) is unlikely to return this season.

    Advice: Latos was scratched from Friday's start with a bone bruise in his right elbow. While it doesn't seem like a long-term concern, there's no reason for the Reds to push him to return with so little time left in the season. "We're not going to try to force feed Mat his last few starts if he's not feeling really good," Price said. "It doesn't make much sense for us. I'd like him to pitch, but I don't want to exacerbate an existing issue. He'll have to come quite a ways to make that next start." Rotoworld.com
    Sep 14, 7:25 am
  • Huston Street earns save in return
    Huston Street pitched a scoreless ninth for a save in his return to the mound Saturday against the Astros.

    Advice: Street was given a three-run lead in his first appearance in a week, and he gave up just a single on his to converting it. The closer had been sidelined with a hamstring injury. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 13, 10:19 pm
  • Avila slugs go-ahead HR, Tigers stay in first
    Alex Avila slugged a go-ahead two-run homer in the Tigers' 5-4 defeat of the Indians on Saturday.

    Advice: Detroit was trailing 4-3 when Avila took Bryan Shaw deep in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was his only hit of the night, but it helped keep the Tigers at the top of the American League Central standings (by a half-game over the Royals). Avila is batting .222/.329/.371 with 11 home runs and 47 RBI in 117 games this season. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 13, 7:44 pm
  • Domonic Brown returns to lineup with two hits
    Domonic Brown (shoulder) returned to action on Friday, going 2-for-4 in an extra-inning victory over the Marlins.

    Advice: Brown left Wednesday's game with a left shoulder contusion sustained after diving for a ball in the outfield, then sat out Thursday's contest as a precautionary measure. After a breakout 2013 season, the 2014 campaign hasn't been as kind to the 27-year-old outfielder as he's slashing just .233/.285/.349 with nine homers and 59 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 13, 2:00 am
  • No timetable for Mat Latos' (elbow) return
    There is no timetable for Mat Latos's (elbow).

    Advice: Latos developed a bone bruise in his throwing elbow while pitching. It doesn't sound like a long-term concern, but with so little time left in the season, his status is very much up in the air. "Hopefully, it's a one week thing and I can make my next start," Latos said. Daniel Corcino is starting Friday in Latos' place. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 12, 2:12 pm
  • Latos scratched with bone bruise in elbow
    Mat Latos has been scratched from Friday's scheduled start versus the Brewers due to a bone bruise in his right elbow.

    Advice: There's been no indication that the ailment is related to the elbow issue that caused him to get a late start to the season. However, it's also not clear whether the injury might cause him to miss additional starts. The Reds should provide more on his status later Friday. Daniel Corcino is making a spot start in Latos' place. Rotoworld.com
