  • Zach Davies goes six strong for 10th win
    Zach Davies limited the Rockies to one run over six innings Sunday for his 10th win of 2016.

    Advice: Davies issued three walks but struck out eight and limited a sometimes-dangerous Colorado offense to five hits. The one run against him came on a Nolan Arenado solo shot in the top of the first inning. Davies, 23, holds a decent 4.06 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 108/34 K/BB ratio in 133 innings (23 starts) this season for Milwaukee. Up next is a start at home against the Cardinals.

  • Stephen Drew (ear) visits specialist for shot
    Stephen Drew visited an inner-ear specialist Wednesday and received a shot.

    Advice: Drew is experiencing symptoms of vertigo due to a right inner-ear issue. The hope here is that the symptoms will begin to dissipate within two weeks, but there is still no timetable for his return. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:40 pm

  • Cobb (elbow) to make one more rehab start
    Alex Cobb (elbow) will make one more minor league rehab start on Saturday.

    Advice: And then he should join the Rays' rotation for the final four weeks of the 2016 regular season. Cobb has registered a 7.64 ERA in seven rehab starts and doesn't look like a great fantasy option at the moment, but he could carry sneaky value into 2017 if his health cooperates. The 28-year-old right-hander hasn't appeared in a major league game since 2014 due to complications related to Tommy John surgery. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:57 pm

  • Hanley Ramirez getting day of rest on Wed.

    Advice: Travis Shaw will start at first base and Brock Holt will start at third base versus Rays right-hander Matt Andriese. Hanley will be available off the bench. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:20 pm
  • Alvarez (shoulder) set for rehab appearance
    Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) will throw an inning in the Arizona League on Saturday.

    Advice: It sounds like the Athletics are now preparing Alvarez to serve as a reliever down the stretch. The right-hander has been out all season because of complications related to last year's shoulder surgery. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:29 am

  • Byung Ho Park to have wrist examined
    Byung Ho Park traveled back to the Twin Cities over the weekend to have his right wrist examined.

    Advice: Park was placed on the disabled list at Triple-A Rochester on August 15 after being diagnosed with tendinitis in his right wrist. The worry now is that it could be something worse. Look for an update later this week. Park, signed to a four-year, $12 million contract this winter, batted just .191/.275/.409 over his first 62 games with the Twins before getting demoted to the minors on July 1.

  • Seager (foot) out of Mariners' lineup on Wed.
    Kyle Seager will be held out Wednesday after fouling a ball off his foot on Tuesday night.

    Advice: It doesn't sound like anything serious, but the Mariners have a day game against the Yankees and don't want to risk making the matter worse. Seager went 0-for-3 on Tuesday versus New York but still owns a cool .286/.364/.515 batting line with 24 home runs and 83 RBI in 124 games this season for Seattle. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:54 am

  • Anthony Rizzo getting game off Wednesday
    Anthony Rizzo is getting the day off Wednesday.

    Advice: Kris Bryant will start at first base, Jorge Soler will play left field, and Javier Baez will handle the hot corner in the afternoon finale at San Diego's Petco Park. It's just a routine day of rest for Rizzo. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:48 am
  • DJ LeMahieu (wrist) sitting again Wednesday
    DJ LeMahieu (wrist) is out of the Rockies' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Brewers.

    Advice: LeMahieu was a late scratch Tuesday due to left wrist inflammation and is apparently still dealing with some discomfort. Daniel Descalso will start at second base and bat sixth on Wednesday afternoon against Zach Davies. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:26 am

  • Huston Street undergoes right knee surgery
    Huston Street underwent successful surgery on his right knee Wednesday.

    Advice: Street is done for the season, but it was an arthroscopic procedure -- not something more involved -- and the veteran right-hander is expected to be 100 percent by the beginning of spring training next February. He tweeted this from the hospital Wednesday morning: "Just got out of surgery, still pretty loopy, but the doc said I should come back throwing 98, but it could have been 89." Street, 33, finished the 2016 season with a rough 6.45 ERA, 1.93 WHIP, and 14/12 K/BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings. Fernando Salas is currently serving as the Angels' closer, by default.

  • Blackmon (toe) goes 1-for-5 in return Tues.
    Charlie Blackmon (toe) finished 1-for-5 with a run scored in his return to the Rockies' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Brewers.

    Advice: He struck out in three of his five trips to the plate as the Rockies fell at Milwaukee. Blackmon had missed four straight starts because of a bruised right toe. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:50 am
  • Maeda surrenders three runs over five IP
    Kenta Maeda turned in a serviceable start in Tuesday's win over the Giants, allowing three runs on six hits over five innings.

    Advice: Maeda struck out four and walked four on the evening. The Giants struck for a pair of runs via RBI singles by Angel Pagan and Buster Posey in the third, then tacked on one more courtesy of a Brandon Belt RBI double in the fifth inning. Through his first 141 2/3 major league innings, the 28-year-old right-hander holds a 3.37 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 142/39 K/BB ratio. A home showdown with the Cubs awaits him next time he takes the mound. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:34 pm
  • Late RBI single from Myers not enough for win
    Wil Myers went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs.

    Advice: Myers picked up an RBI base knock as part of a three-run ninth inning, but the Cubs held a 5-0 cushion to start the frame and managed to close out the win despite a few late rocky moments. For the season as a whole, the 25-year-old Myers is hitting .267/.343/.473 with 23 homers and 72 RBI. The overall numbers are fine, but he has struggled of late and entered Tuesday's game with just two hits in his last 23 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:28 pm

  • Friedrich proves ineffective in loss to Cubs
    Christian Friedrich failed to impress in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs, surrendering five runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Friedrich struck out just two while walking four. Three of the five runs on his line came home via the home run, with Kris Bryant cracking a solo shot in the third and Addison Russell mashing a two-run shot as part of a three-run fifth. Friedrich will carry a limp 4.89 ERA and 1.49 WHIP into a road start against the Braves next time he toes the rubber. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:09 pm
  • Cano singles twice in loss to former team
    Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: As a team, the Mariners managed just four hits on the evening. Cano was the only player to pick up more than one. The All-Star second baseman is in the midst of a fantastic campaign and is currently slashing .295/.349/.522 with 28 homers and 79 RBI across 508 at-bats. Fantasy second basemen don't get much better than that. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:03 pm
  • Street will undergo knee surgery Wednesday
    Huston Street will undergo season-ending surgery Wednesday on his right knee.

    Advice: It'll be an arthroscopic procedure, which should allow Street to enter spring training in 2017 at 100 percent. The 33-year-old right-hander wound up with a highly disappointing 6.45 ERA, 1.93 WHIP, and 14/12 K/BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings this season. He's due $9 million from Anaheim next year with a $10 million club option (or $1 million buyout) for 2018. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:59 pm

  • Alvarez (shoulder) throws bullpen session
    Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session in front of A's coaches Tuesday.

    Advice: He worked in his slider (along with his fastball and changeup) and reported feeling good. Alvarez is still working his way back from shoulder surgery and has already encountered multiple setbacks, but he said he is hoping to pitch for Oakland before the end of the season. Even if it's in relief. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:29 pm

  • LeMahieu scratched due to wrist inflammation
    DJ LeMahieu was scratched from the Rockies' lineup Tuesday due to left wrist inflammation.

    Advice: Daniel Descalso will start at second base and bat sixth Tuesday versus Brewers right-hander Chase Anderson. This could be a multi-game absence for LeMahieu. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:09 pm

  • Huston Street expected to have knee surgery
    Huston Street is expected to undergo season-ending knee surgery.

    Advice: It's a fitting end to a disastrous season for the veteran closer. Street was rarely healthy this year and struggled when he was, collecting a miserable 6.45 ERA over 26 outings. Rookie Cam Bedrosian (finger) has surpassed him and would probably be the favorite for saves if he were healthy. Fernando Salas has filled in at closer the past couple weeks. The Angels' bullpen has been a complete mess this year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:58 pm

  • Blackmon (toe) appears as pinch-hitter
    Charlie Blackmon (toe) struck out as a pinch-hitter to end Monday's game against the Brewers.

    Advice: Blackmon has missed four straight starts with a bruised right toe, but that he appeared as a pinch-hitter is a sign that he's getting close to returning. He's considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:14 am
  • Anthony Rizzo goes 4-for-5
    Anthony Rizzo went 4-for-5 on Monday to finish a game with a .300 average for the first time since April 9.

    Advice: Rizzo got to .299 in the final game before the All-Star break, so it's not like he's been on a tear of late. Still, he's managed to keep contributing, even though he has just one homer in the last month. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:43 pm
  • Kyle Seager hits three-run homer in win
    Kyle Seager went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer and a walk in the Mariners' 7-5 defeat of the Yankees on Monday.

    Advice: Seager's .884 OPS is about 100 points better than he's ever done before, and he's two away from matching his career high in homers. It's too bad his brother is getting all of the attention in the family; both have been among the game's top 20 or so position players this year. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:38 pm

  • Blackmon (toe) out of lineup again Monday
    Charlie Blackmon (toe) is out of the Rockies' starting lineup again Monday versus the Brewers.

    Advice: Blackmon has now missed four straight starts with a bruised right big toe. Consider him day-to-day for now. Both David Dahl and Gerardo Parra are in the outfield again on Monday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:23 pm
  • Huston Street (knee) could undergo surgery
    Huston Street will receive a second opinion on his ailing right knee and could opt to undergo season-ending surgery.

    Advice: Street has been sidelined all month with a knee issue and apparently hasn't experienced improvement as hoped. It's unclear what the specifics of the operations might be if he has one, but it's not expected to be anything that would threaten his availability for the start of 2017. Fernando Salas is currently filling in as the Angels' closer. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:56 am

  • Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) throws off mound
    Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Sunday.

    Advice: It was only fastballs and changeups, but the right-hander felt good. Alvarez has encountered many twists and turns as he works his way back from shoulder surgery, but he hasn't given up hope of pitching this season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:46 am

  • Blackmon (toe) likely out a few more days
    Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Saturday that he expected Charlie Blackmon (toe) to miss a couple more starts.

    Advice: He's already missed two starts with a bruised right big toe and it sounds like Blackmon probably won't be back in there until at least the middle of the week. David Dahl has started the last two games in center field, with Gerardo Parra getting the call in left. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:30 am
  • Charlie Blackmon (toe) out again Saturday
    Charlie Blackmon (toe) is not in the Rockies' lineup Saturday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Blackmon missed Friday's game with a bruised toe and will get another day off on Saturday. Rookie David Dahl will draw the start in center field and bat leadoff against Cubs lefty Mike Montgomery. Blackmon is still considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:11 pm
  • Charlie Blackmon scratched with toe injury
    Charlie Blackmon was a late scratch from Friday's game against the Cubs due to a bruised right big toe.

    Advice: It's unclear exactly how Blackmon sustained the injury, but it may have occurred during the lengthy rain delay before Friday's game. He's considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:29 pm
  • Cano cracks solo home run in loss to Angels
    Robinson Cano went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Cano whacked a solo home run off Angels starter Matt Shoemaker in the first inning for his lone hit of the game. The dinger was his 27th of the season and pushed his RBI total to 75. The 27 homers are the most he has hit since he launched the same number with the Yankees in 2013. With about a month-and-a-half remaining in the season, the star second baseman needs six more home runs to tie the career-best 33 he notched four seasons ago. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:30 pm
  • Zach Davies gives up seven runs to Cubs
    Zach Davies was roughed up again Thursday, allowing seven runs in four innings versus the Cubs.

    Advice: Davies had his ERA down to 3.58 a week ago, but he's given up 12 runs in his last two starts, pushing him back up to 4.18. The Brewers have to hope he hasn't completely run out of gas; they're running out of pitching to use to finish the season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:54 pm

  • Hanley Ramirez activated off bereavement list
    Red Sox activated 1B Hanley Ramirez from the bereavement list.

    Advice: Hanley flew home to the Dominican Republic on Sunday to mourn the death of a relative. He is starting at first base and batting cleanup for the Red Sox on Thursday afternoon against Tigers left-hander Matt Boyd. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:31 am
  • Friedrich takes loss versus Tampa Bay
    Christian Friedrich surrendered two earned runs over 6 2/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Rays.

    Advice: Friedrich got zero support from the Padres offense, which has been a pretty common theme all year. He struck out five and walked just one, but Brad Miller slugged a two-run homer in the bottom of the first inning and that's all the firepower Tampa Bay needed. Friedrich will carry a 4-9 record and 4.69 ERA into his next start at home against the Cubs. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:46 pm
  • LeMahieu scores three times as Rox best Nats
    DJ LeMahieu went 3-for-3 with a triple, a two-run home run and three runs scored as the Rockies topped the Nationals 6-2 on Tuesday.

    Advice: No one this side of the equator (sorry, that disqualifies you, Michael Phelps) is as hot as LeMahieu these days. The 28-year-old is now hitting .548 (17-for-31) with two home runs, five RBI and eight runs scored during an eight-game hitting streak, running his overall line to .342/.415/.498. LeMahieu is also fourth in the National League with 79 runs scored. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:05 pm

  • Kenta Maeda strong over six innings Tuesday
    Kenta Maeda recorded nine strikeouts while yielding two runs across six frames in Tuesday's 15-5 blowout win over the Phillies.

    Advice: The Dodgers didn't need much from Maeda as they ambushed the Phillies' pitching staff, but he gave them a good outing, anyway. The right-hander permitted just three hits and one walk on the night to go along with his nine punchouts. Maeda has often had trouble pitching deep into games, but he now boasts a 3.29 ERA and 138/35 K/BB ratio over 136 2/3 innings. He'll face the Reds in Cincinnati this weekend. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:41 pm
  • Charlie Blackmon hits 21st homer
    Charlie Blackmon, named the NL Player of the Week earlier in the day, hit his 21st homer Monday against the Nationals.

    Advice: Blackmon has nine homers in his last 10 games after hitting 12 in his first 96. He already has more RBI this year (60) than he did in 157 games last season (58). Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:24 pm
  • DJ LeMahieu goes 4-for-4
    DJ LeMahieu had a 4-for-4 night at the plate Monday against the Nationals.

    Advice: Though he lacks the big power stroke, LeMahieu has been awesome at Coors Field this year, hitting .390 with a 24/36 K/BB ratio in 242 plate appearances. On the road, he's at a much more pedestrian, though still respectable, .288 with a 38/16 K/BB ratio in 239 plate appearances. It's just not all about the home run at Coors.

  • Byung Ho Park lands on AAA disabled list
    Byung Ho Park has been placed on the disabled list at Triple-A Rochester with right wrist tendinitis.

    Advice: It's unclear how much time he might miss. Park is batting .224/.297/.526 with 10 home runs in 31 games since his demotion to the Triple-A level on the first of July, but he had been in a slump lately. The South Korean slugger was slashing .191/.275/.409 with 12 home runs through 62 games for Minnesota. Rotoworld.com Aug 15, 12:11 pm

    Hanley Ramirez is expected to spend three days on the bereavement list.

    Advice: Which pegs his return for Thursday, when the Red Sox begin a four-game series at Detroit's Comerica Park. Hanley was placed on bereavement Sunday evening and traveled home to the Dominican Republic. Rotoworld.com Aug 15, 8:52 am
  • Rizzo slugs 25th home run in losing effort
    Anthony Rizzo slugged his 25th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Cardinals on Sunday night.

    Advice: His solo blast off of Kevin Siegrist in the eighth inning pulled the Cubs back to within two runs at 6-4, but that would be as close as they would come in the ballgame. Rizzo also singled twice, finishing the night 3-for-4 with a run scored and three RBI. He's having an outstanding season at the dish, slashing .291/.398/.572 with 25 homers, 85 RBI and three stolen bases. Rotoworld.com Aug 14, 8:14 pm
  • Kyle Seager plates four in win over Athletics
    Kyle Seager went 2-for-5 with a pair of doubles and four RBI on Sunday, leading the Mariners to an 8-4 victory over the Athletics in Oakland.

    Advice: Seager gave the Mariners a 2-1 lead with an RBI double in the second inning, then piled on with a bases-clearing double to increase their advantage to 7-1 in the sixth. He is having a terrific season at the dish, slashing .284/.359/.515 with 22 homers and 77 RBI. Rotoworld.com Aug 14, 4:14 pm

  • Red Sox place Hanley Ramirez on bereavement
    Red Sox placed INF Hanley Ramirez on the bereavement leave list.

    Advice: He will be away from the club for a couple of days, so fantasy owners will want to have another option ready for next week. No corresponding move has been announced yet. Rotoworld.com Aug 14, 2:18 pm
  • Cano slugs two-run homer on Saturday
    Robinson Cano slugged a key two-run homer to lift the Mariners over the Athletics on Saturday.

    Advice: The blast was his 26th of the season. He is batting .294 with 73 RBI and 75 runs scored. His .872 OPS is his best since joining the Mariners in 2014. Rotoworld.com Aug 13, 10:23 pm
  • Davies allows five runs in loss to Reds
    Zach Davies allowed five runs on eight hits over five innings in Saturday's loss to the Reds.

    Advice: Davies allowed just one run over his first five innings, but three straight singles and a walk to lead off the sixth ended his night. Reliever Michael Blazek promptly allowed a three-run home run, two runs of which were credited to Davies, so his final line was actually a little worse than the 23-year-old likely deserved. The loss snapped a four-game winning streak for Davies, who sits at 9-5 with a 3.80 ERA and 1.21 WHIP through 21 starts this year. The Brewers seem to have found something in Davies, who will face a tougher task next week when they visit the Cubs. Rotoworld.com Aug 13, 9:21 pm

  • Myers connects for clutch homer against Mets
    Wil Myers hit his 23rd home run of the year in Saturday's loss to the Mets.

    Advice: It was going to be a loss anyway before Myers turned around a 97 mph fastball from closer Jeurys Familia to tie the game with two outs in the ninth inning. The homer was Myers' only hit in four at-bats. The 25-year-old has settled in with the Padres and is enjoying a breakout offensive year, batting .276/.354/.500 with 23 homers, 70 RBI, 77 runs and 21 stolen bases through 113 games.
