    Advice: Rosales tagged Giants starter Ty Blach for a solo shot in the third inning, pulling the Padres to within a run at 3-2. The lefty-mashing utility man has been on a tear as of late and is now slashing .232/.322/.502 with 13 long balls and 35 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:51 pm

  • Clayton Richard pitches well in no-decision
    Clayton Richard pitched well in a no-decision against the Giants on Sunday, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits over six frames.

    Advice: Richard also issued three walks and struck out only one on the afternoon. All of the damage against him came during a three-run rally in the third inning, highlighted by a two-run single from Buster Posey. Inexplicably, Richard has pitched very well since rejoining the Padres, posting a 2.01 ERA over 49 1/3 innings. He'll take on the Diamondbacks in Arizona on the final day of the regular season.

  • Corey Seager smahes game-tying home run
    Corey Seager smashed a game-tying home run in the ninth inning on Sunday, which ultimately led to the Dodgers defeating the Rockies 4-3.

    Advice: Seager tied the game at 2-2 with a run-scoring triple in the seventh inning. He then tagged Rockies closer Adam Ottavino for the game-tying blast with two outs in the ninth inning to force extras, where Charlie Culberson socked a walk-off homer in the 10th. Seager finished the day 3-for-5 and is now hitting a robust .313/.371/.523 with 26 homers and 72 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:23 pm
  • Iglesias earns save as Reds top Brewers
    Raisel Iglesias struck out all three batters he faced Sunday to earn his fourth save.

    Advice: Iglesias needed just 15 total pitches to carve up Chris Carter, Hernan Perez, and Orlando Arcia. The right-hander has now earned the Reds' last two saves with Tony Cingrani hitting a rough patch. Iglesias carries sneaky fantasy value into the final week. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:30 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. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:57 pm
  • 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. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:45 pm
  • Jose Bautista homers again in Jays' victory
    Jose Bautista reached base four times and homered for the third time in four games in Sunday's win over the Yankees.

    Advice: Bautista got the scoring going with a solo shot off of Michael Pineda in the fourth inning.

Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:39 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. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:09 pm
  • Jose Iglesias scratched from Tigers' lineup
    Jose Iglesias was a late scratch from the Tigers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Chris McCosky of the Detroit News says that Iglesias "was tore up pretty good" by the death of fellow Cuban Jose Fernandez and it appears that's the reason for him being scratched. Andrew Romine has replaced Iglesias at shortstop. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:40 am
  • Eric Hosmer sitting out on Sunday
    Eric Hosmer is not in the Royals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It looks to simply be a rare day off for the first baseman. Whit Merrifield is filling in for Hosmer. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:35 am
  • Jose Iglesias (hand) back in action Saturday
    Jose Iglesias (hand) singled and scored a run in five trips to the plate Saturday against the Royals.

    Advice: Iglesias had to be lifted from Friday's game after an errant throw from third base hit his right hand as he crossed first base. However, he didn't wind up needing any additional down time as it turned out. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:23 am
  • Romo snares third save on Saturday
    Sergio Romo gave up a base hit in the 10th inning but was able to protect a three-run lead to earn the save against the Padres on Saturday.

    Advice: Romo now seems to be the go-to guy to close out games for the Giants. They have had a revolving door at closer but this was Romo's third save in the last five games. He is the Giants reliever to own for fantasy purposes. Romo missed half the season to injury but has pitched well when on the mound. He has a 2.93 ERA with 30 strikeouts in 27 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:30 pm
  • Pagan goes 3-for-5 with an RBI, run and steal
    Angel Pagan went 3-for-5 with an RBI, stole a base and scored a run in the Giants' extra-inning win on Saturday.

    Advice: He drove in a run with a single in the first inning. He scored the go-ahead run in the 10th inning on a Kelby Tomlinson single. Pagan has a .273 batting average with 11 bombs, 51 RBI and 66 runs scored in 122 games this year. He has pitched in 14 stolen bases as well. He is a decent extra outfielder in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:19 pm
  • Herrera gets three more hits, scores twice
    Odubel Herrera went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Mets.

    Advice: Herrera had a triple, his sixth of the season, among his three hits. It was the third time in his last eight games that he's enjoyed a three-hit night, and Herrera has eight multi-hit games this month. The strong finish is very promising from the 24-year-old, who is hitting .290/.365/.428 with 15 homers, 48 RBI, 85 runs scored and 25 steals overall. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:10 pm
  • Bettis pounded for seven runs in 4 2/3 frames
    Chad Bettis was demolished for seven runs -- five earned -- over 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Dodgers on Saturday.

    Advice: He can't blame this one on Coors Field either. He struggled to throw strikes, walking four on 105 pitches in the short and ugly outing. He gave up eight hits and struck out three. Bettis gave up four runs in the second inning, two more in the fourth and was chased after giving up an RBI single to opposing pitcher Clayton Kershaw in the fifth. His record falls to 13-8 with a 4.92 ERA in 179 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:52 pm
  • Gordon runs wild on Braves in Marlins victory
    Dee Gordon went 2-for-3 with three stolen bases and two runs scored in the Marlins' 6-4 win over the Braves on Saturday.

    Advice: Gordon had no fear for Braves catcher Anthony Recker, walking and stealing second base in the first inning, stealing third base in the third inning and stealing second again an inning later. The three steals give him 26 steals in 74 games this year. His .257/.298/.320 line leaves something to be desired, but the 28-year-old's speed is a fantasy difference-maker and with a full year to work with in 2017, he should once again be among the cream of the crop at second base.

  • Joey Bats silences Yankees with late blast
    Jose Bautista bopped a tie-breaking three-run homer Saturday in a dramatic win over the Yankees.

    Advice: It wasn't as epic as the famous "bat flip" but it was a worthy sequel and a reminder that Bautista is money when the stakes are highest. Bautista broke a scoreless tie with a righteous blast to left field off Tyler Clippard in the eighth inning. It was one of two hits for Bautista, who also doubled in the second inning. Bautista is rounding into postseason form with two homers over his last three outings. With the victory, the Blue Jays are now a full two games clear of Baltimore and Detroit in the AL Wild Card race. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:33 pm
  • Hosmer clubs three-run homer to beat Tigers
    Eric Hosmer dealt a blow to the Tigers playoff chances on Saturday, clubbing a three-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning, propelling the Royals to a 7-4 victory in Motown.

    Advice: The Royals entered the inning trailing 4-2 and were down to their final strike before Paulo Orlando came through with a two-run double to tie the game. That set the stage for Hosmer's heroic blast off of Tigers' closer Francisco Rodriguez. It was Hosmer's lone hit in five at-bats on the afternoon. He's been a terrific source of run production this season, slashing .268/.329/.434 with 24 homers and 100 RBI. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:34 pm
  • Iglesias day-to-day with hand contusion
    Jose Iglesias has been diagnosed with a right hand contusion and is listed as day-to-day.

    Advice: The defensive wizard was hit in the hand by an errant throw while running the bases in Friday's victory over the Royals. It wouldn't be surprising to see Andrew Romine start in his place on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:51 pm
  • Jose Iglesias leaves game with hand injury
    Jose Iglesias was forced to leave Friday's game against the Royals after being hit on the hand by an errant throw.

    Advice: Iglesias got drilled on the right hand by a wild throw from Cheslor Cuthbert as he crossed first base. He remained in the game to run for himself, but was replaced by Andrew Romine defensively the next half inning. Expect the Tigers to provide an update on his status after the conclusion of Friday's game. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:42 pm
  • Dee Gordon not in Friday's lineup
    Dee Gordon is not in the Marlins' lineup Friday.

    Advice: It's a simple day off. Derek Dietrich is at second base and in the leadoff spot. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:58 am

  • Romo earns save as Giants survive late scares
    Sergio Romo earned his second save of the season with a scoreless ninth inning in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Padres.

    Advice: The Giants' bullpen has been an out-and-out mess in September. Romo has picked up saves in two of the last three games, though, and might earn a few additional chances over the final week-plus. On Thursday, he allowed a one-out double to Ryan Schimpf in the ninth, but induced a pop out and a ground out to end the contest without run-scoring incident. In 26 2/3 innings this season, Romo has pitched to a 3.04 ERA and 29/7 K/BB ratio. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:32 pm
  • Jose Bautista launches dramatic homer in 9th
    Jose Bautista smashed a game-tying solo home run in the ninth inning of Wednesday's 12-inning loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Bautista absolutely unloaded on an Edwin Diaz offering with one out in the ninth inning, sending it an estimated 424 feet to left field. That monster shot tied proceedings at 1-1. The Mariners would eventually win in the bottom of the 12th on a Robinson Cano sacrifice fly. For the season, Bautista is now slashing .230/.358/.437 with 19 homers and 60 RBI over 391 at-bats. Wednesday's homer was just his second in the month of September. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:22 pm
  • Adam Rosales homers, drives in four vs. ARI
    Adam Rosales went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run and four RBI in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Funky little batting line for Rosales due to the fact that two of his four RBI came via sacrifice flies. His two-run home run in the sixth inning was his 11th of the season. The veteran infielder has homered in two of his last three games and is slashing .233/.323/.485 with 11 homers and 32 RBI over 202 at-bats for the season as a whole. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:42 pm

  • Seager collects three hits in loss to Giants
    Corey Seager went 3-for-4 with a double in Tuesday's loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Seager picked up double No. 40 for the season in the loss. That was the Dodgers' only extra-base hit on the evening. For the 2016 campaign as a whole, the 22-year-old shortstop is hitting .316/.374/.526 with 25 homers and 69 RBI over 586 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:19 pm
  • Herrera stuffs stat sheet in win over ChiSox
    Odubel Herrera had a monster day Tuesday, going 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and two stolen bases against the White Sox.

    Advice: Herrera drilled a deep one to right-center off of James Shields for a two-run homer in the first inning and followed it up with his trademark bat-flip. He then added a couple singles, with one of them plating a run in the fifth inning. Herrera went through a lengthy lull after the All-Star break but has really picked it up over the last week, batting .536 with two homers, six RBI and four stolen bases in his last seven contests. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:01 pm
  • 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. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:52 pm
  • Clayton Richard earns win against Arizona
    Clayton Richard yielded two runs in 6 1/3 innings Monday in a win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Richard has been a really nice stopgap for the Padres, who signed him because they didn't want to rush unready pitching prospects into their rotation this summer. He's 3-2 with a 1.87 ERA in seven starts and two relief appearances for the team. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:26 pm
  • Hosmer knocks in two runs vs. White Sox
    Eric Hosmer went 2-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored against the White Sox on Monday.

    Advice: Hosmer had RBI singles in the fifth and sixth innings. He has improved his career-best RBI total to 97 for the year. The batting average has dropped off this season (.272 after Monday’s game), but he has made up with his increased run production for fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:20 pm
  • Chad Bettis defeats Padres to win 13th game
    Chad Bettis picked up his 13th victory of the season on Sunday, limiting the Padres to three runs on five hits over 5 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Bettis punched out three and issued just one walk on the afternoon. He allowed just a solo home run to Adam Rosales through the first five innings, then the Padres tacked on a pair while chasing him in the sixth. He'll carry a 4.79 ERA and 1.37 WHIP into Saturday's start against the Dodgers in Los Angeles. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 4:36 pm
  • Rosales clobbers 10th homer in loss Sunday

  • Herrera steals base, scores twice versus Fish
    Odubel Herrera went 2-for-5 with an RBI double, a stolen base and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Herrera's double in the first inning sparked a five-run frame for the Phillies. The multi-hit game was his fourth in his last five games, and he's got doubles in each of his last four contests. The resurgence is nice to see after he hit a rough patch in the season's second half. The 24-year-old is hitting .283/.360/.413 with 13 homers, 77 runs scored and 22 stolen bases overall. Rotoworld.com Sep 17, 8:00 pm
  • Gordon has three hits, two steals in loss
    Dee Gordon went 3-for-6 with two steals and a run scored in Friday’s extra-inning loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: Gordon found himself in a deep slump after returning from his PED suspension, but he’s finally starting to heat up at the plate. He has hit safely in each of his last eight games and has multi-hit games in three out of his last four. After stealing just four bases in a 29-game span from August 13-September 13, he has swiped five bases over his last two games. Rotoworld.com Sep 16, 9:17 pm
