  • Mariners recall Mike Freeman from AAA
    Mariners recalled INF/OF Michael Freeman from Triple-A Tacoma.

  • Molitor: Joe Mauer again having quad issues
    Twins manager Paul Molitor confirmed Thursday that Joe Mauer is again having quad issues.

    Advice: It's the reason Mauer was out of the lineup Wednesday and will sit again Thursday. He injured the quad last week while running the bases in Atlanta and could need a couple more games off, though Molitor said he's not ruling Mauer out for Friday night's series opener on the road against the Blue Jays. Trevor Plouffe is playing first base on Thursday versus the Tigers with Eduardo Escobar at third. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:22 am

    Advice: Iglesias is 4-for-12 with a homer in three rehab games with Triple-A Toledo. The shortstop has been sidelined since August 12 because of a left hamstring strain. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Thursday that he plans to keep Erick Aybar active even when Iglesias returns, for what it's worth. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:54 am

  • Mike Minor (shoulder) shut down for season
    Mike Minor (shoulder) has officially been shut down for the year.

    Advice: Minor had another setback with his troublesome left shoulder in a rehab start Friday with Triple-A Omaha and Royals GM Dayton Moore confirmed Wednesday that the 28-year-old southpaw has simply run out of time. Minor hasn't appeared in a major league game since 2014, and he hasn't been effective since 2013. Kansas City owes him $4 million next year. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:26 am

  • Gurriel (hamstring) lines out as pinch-hitter
    Yulieski Gurriel (hamstring) lined out as a pinch-hitter on Wednesday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Gurriel was held out of the Astros' starting lineup for the third straight game due to tightness in his right hamstring. It's something he came down with in his major league debut Sunday versus the Orioles. Gurriel should be ready to rock for the opening of a three-game weekend series Friday night against the Rays.

  • Peterson (neck, shoulder) returned Wed.
    Jace Peterson (neck, shoulder) was 1-for-2 with two walks and a run scored on Wednesday.

    Advice: Peterson had been held out of the Braves' starting lineup for two games due to tightness in his neck and shoulder. The 26-year-old is batting .256/.354/.386 in 86 total games this season for last-place Atlanta. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:49 am
  • Brock Holt (oblique) hitless in return Wed.
    Brock Holt (oblique) went hitless in three at-bats Wednesday in his return to the Red Sox lineup.

    Advice: It was the first game in five days for Holt, who has been battling oblique tightness. He might be looking at a bigger workload for the stretch run with starting left fielder Andrew Benintendi (knee, ankle) possibly done for the season. Chris Young will also draw starts in left, but he struggles against right-handed pitching. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:45 am

  • Soler (leg) returns with a 2-for-3 on Wed.
    Jorge Soler (leg) went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI in his return to action Wednesday.

    Advice: Soler was out a handful of days after fouling a ball off his leg over the weekend. The double was his seventh of the season. He's slashing .246/.328/.440 in 65 games. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:43 am
  • Julio Teheran gives up six runs to Arizona
    Julio Teheran was charged with six runs in six innings Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Teheran's stuff hasn't looked particularly crisp since he came off the disabled list last week, and it's worth wondering if he can recapture his first-half success before the season ends. He allowed 11 hits in all tonight, two of them homers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:48 pm
  • Zack Greinke gives up four runs to Braves
    Zack Greinke allowed four runs over six innings in a no-decision Wednesday against the Braves.

    Advice: Greinke picked up his 2,000th career strikeout in an otherwise unmemorable outing. He's given up four runs on seven occasions this year after doing so just twice in 2015. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:47 pm
  • Miggy collects four hits and homer vs. Twins
    Miguel Cabrera went 4-for-5 with a home run and two RBI to lead the Tigers to a 9-4 victory over the Twins on Wednesday.

    Advice: His solo blast in the first inning opened the scoring. He then contributed an RBI double in the third inning before adding another double and a single. The future Hall of Famer is batting .313/.386/.552 with 28 home runs, 80 RBI, and 71 runs scored in 124 games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:54 pm
  • James Loney goes 0-for-4 in loss
    James Loney went 0-for-4 in the loss to the Cardinals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Loney won some fans in New York after a solid start replacing James Loney, but his OPS is under .700 now and he's driven in all of 26 runs in 71 games (and scored a total of 21 times). He's not helping. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:18 pm
  • Gurriel (hamstring) remains out Wednesday
    Yulieski Gurriel (hamstring) remains absent from the Astros' lineup on Wednesday.

    Advice: Gurriel has now started just one of four games since joining the active major league roster on Sunday. He left his MLB debut with tightness in his right hamstring and is still apparently experiencing discomfort. This is probably a good time for a reminder that the Cuban slugger is 32 years old. Alex Bregman will start at third base again and bat second Wednesday versus Pirates ace Gerrit Cole. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:19 am
    Day-to-Day
     
  • Gurriel (hamstring) remains out Tuesday night
    Yulieski Gurriel (hamstring) is out of the Astros' starting lineup again on Tuesday night.

    Advice: Gurriel left his MLB debut on Sunday with right hamstring tightness and was limited to pinch-hitting duties on Monday. His status appears to be the same for Tuesday. Alex Bregman is starting at third base and batting second versus Pirates right-hander Ivan Nova. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:05 pm

  • Peterson (neck, shoulder) returns as pinch-hitter
    Jace Peterson (neck, shoulder) struck out as a pinch-hitter in Monday night's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: He was originally in the starting lineup but was scratched prior to the game after feeling tightness in his neck and shoulder. Peterson hurt himself running into the center field wall in Sunday's series finale against Washington. He should be available off the bench Tuesday night but it's unclear if he's ready to return to the starting lineup. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:57 am
  • Gurriel (hamstring) appears as pinch-hitter
    Yulieski Gurriel (hamstring) grounded out as a pinch-hitter Monday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Gurriel exited his MLB debut on Sunday because of hamstring tightness, but he's expected to be back in the starting lineup Tuesday. The Astros don't have the DH available under National League rules, so look for him to either play third base or left field. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:41 am
    Day-to-Day
     
  • Hunter (back) won't return until September
    Tommy Hunter (back) has been informed that he's not likely to return until after rosters expand on September 1.

    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

  • Gurriel available off bench Monday
    Yulieski Gurriel is available off the bench Monday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Gurriel left his MLB debut Sunday with some tightness in his hamstring, but it's not considered serious. The Astros don't have the DH available for their series against the Pirates, but Gurriel is likely to be back in the lineup Tuesday either at third base or in left field. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:52 pm

  • Peterson scratched from Monday's lineup
    Jace Peterson was scratched from Monday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Peterson is dealing with some soreness after colliding with the wall during Sunday's game. He expects to be ready to play Tuesday. Chase d’Arnaud will start in his place at second base on Monday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:21 pm
  • Yulieski Gurriel not in Monday's lineup
    Yulieski Gurriel is not in Monday's lineup against the Pirates.

    Advice: Gurriel went 1-for-2 with a double and a walk in his MLB debut Sunday before leaving with tightness in his right hamstring. He's considered day-to-day and will sit with the DH unavailable under National League rules. He could get a start a third base during the series, but Alex Bregman is starting there Monday.

  • Gurriel leaves debut with hamstring tightness
    Yulieski Gurriel left his MLB debut against the Orioles with tightness in his right hamstring.

    Advice: After sitting through a lengthy rain delay, the right hamstring tightened up on the Cuban slugger. He's considered day-to-day for now, though Gurriel said that he'll be in the lineup on Monday night in Pittsburgh. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:08 pm

  • Jace Peterson ends extras with walk-off homer
    Jace Peterson hit a solo walk-off home run to end Sunday's 7-6, 10-inning win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Peterson also had an infield single in the sixth inning. He improved on that little hit -- and then some -- by clocking the game-winning home run off Shawn Kelley with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning. For the season, the 26-year-old second baseman has hit to a .255/.348/.389 triple-slash with seven homers and 22 RBI across 247 at-bats. Despite Sunday's heroics, Peterson holds no fantasy intrigue. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:45 pm
  • Mike Minor (shoulder) suffers setback
    Mike Minor left a rehab start on Friday with stiffness in his surgically-repaired left shoulder.

    Advice: It's unclear at this point how serious the setback is, but Royals general manager Dayton Moore said in a radio interview on 610 Sports Radio that it effectively rules Minor out as an option for the major league club in September. "We're not too optimistic that he's going to be in a position to help us this year based on some news we got after the game last night," Moore said. Minor hasn't pitched in the majors since 2014 due to shoulder problems. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:19 am

  • Jorge Soler scratched with sore leg
    Jorge Soler was scratched from Sunday's lineup with a sore leg.

    Advice: Soler fouled a ball off his leg during Saturday's game and is apparently still sore. Consider him day-to-day. Matt Szczur has assumed his spot in the lineup. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:46 am
  • Jose Iglesias (hamstring) set for rehab games
    Jose Iglesias (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on Monday.

    Advice: He's slated to play at least four games for Toledo, putting him in line to return next weekend if all goes well. Iglesias has missed the last week and a half with a hamstring injury. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:05 am

  • Ryan Hanigan (ankle) nearing rehab assignment
    Ryan Hanigan (ankle) will begin a rehab assignment soon.

    Advice: Hanigan has missed the last two weeks of action with tendinitis in his left ankle. He'll rejoin the Red Sox when rosters expand but is likely headed for a diminished role with Sandy Leon playing so well. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:32 am

  • Astros recall Yulieski Gurriel from Triple-A
    Astros recalled 3B Yulieski Gurriel from Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Gurriel will make his major league debut in the designated hitter spot against the Orioles. Most of his playing time figures to come at third base, although he did make one start in left field in the minors. Alex Bregman might now see most of his starts in left. Gurriel batted an underwhelming .250/.262/.429 with two homers over 15 minor league games, but the 32-year-old has a seasoned bat and could hit the ground running with the Astros. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:29 am
    Day-to-Day
     
  • Astros to promote Yulieski Gurriel on Sunday
    Yulieski Gurriel will be recalled from Triple-A Fresno on Sunday.

    Advice: The Astros' free agent prize from Cuba is finally ready to make his big league debut. Gurriel mostly played third base during his 15-game stint in the minor leagues though he did make one start in left field. He'll serve as the DH in his debut Sunday against the Orioles. Gurriel hit .250 in the minors with two homers and 14 RBI in 56 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:13 pm

  • Holt (oblique) getting the day off Saturday
    Brock Holt (oblique) is not in the Red Sox lineup Saturday against the Tigers.

    Advice: Holt has been battling oblique tightness for a few days now and was unable to finish Friday night's game. Despite the injury, Holt should be available off the bench on Saturday. Holt opened the year as Boston's starting left fielder but was moved to a utility role when the Red Sox called up top prospect Andrew Benintendi. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:24 pm

  • Brock Holt leaves with left oblique soreness
    Brock Holt was forced to leave Friday's game against the Tigers with left oblique soreness.

    Advice: Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated that Holt only feels the injury when he throws. It wouldn't be surprising to see him rest on Saturday as a precautionary measure, though he could be available as a pinch hitter or runner off of the bench. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:59 am

  • Zack Greinke solid for seven innings
    Zack Greinke pitched seven innings and allowed two runs Friday against the Padres.

    Advice: Greinke bounced back nicely from the horrific start Sunday against the Red Sox. The quality of opponents likely had something to do with his last two results, but then, the Padres offense isn't so bad, at least for the top half of the order. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:49 pm
  • Julio Teheran gives up three runs in return
    Julio Teheran gave up three runs on six hits over five innings of work in his return to the Braves rotation on Friday.

    Advice: The Braves' ace walked three and struck out five on the night. The Nats pushed a run across in the first inning against him, then Teheran battled back to fire three scoreless innings before they scratched out another pair in his final inning of work. He appears fully recovered from his strained lat and fantasy owners should have no qualms about using him for Wednesday's matchup against the Diamondbacks in Arizona. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:29 pm
  • Julio Teheran (lat) activated for Fri. start
    Braves activated RHP Julio Teheran from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Teheran will start on Friday against the Nationals. The righty first injured his lat nearly a month ago but has been cleared to return after allowing just one earned run while striking out five and walking none in a five-inning rehab start with Triple-A Gwinnett. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:42 am
  • Gurriel to start in left field Thursday night
    Yulieski Gurriel will start in left field Thursday for Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Well that's an interesting development. The expectation was that Gurriel would only play third base during his rehab assignment but it looks like the Astros are going to try him in the outfield. Gurriel has some outfield experience from his playing days in Cuba and got some reps there when he worked out for the Astros prior to signing. Moving Gurriel to the outfield full time would allow top prospect Alex Bregman to remain at third base. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:35 pm

  • Miguel Cabrera knocks in run in victory
    Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-3 and drove in his 1,000th run as a Tiger in Thursday's 4-3 defeat of the Red Sox.

    Advice: Cabrera singled in a run as part of a three-run rally that gave the Tigers the lead in the eighth. He's driven in 1,000 runs in 1,337 games since joining the Tigers and 1,533 runs in 2,057 games overall. He's 52nd on the all-time RBI list and moving up steadily. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:53 pm
  • Teheran (lat) cleared to return Friday vs WSH
    Julio Teheran (lat) will be activated from the disabled list and start Friday versus the Nationals.

    Advice: As expected. Teheran allowed just one earned run while striking out five and walking none in a five-inning rehab start last Sunday with Triple-A Gwinnett. The 25-year-old right-hander was placed on the disabled list August 1 because of a lat strain. He owns a shiny 2.81 ERA, 0.965 WHIP, and 119/29 K/BB ratio in 134 2/3 innings this season with Atlanta. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:02 pm
  • Miguel Cabrera (biceps) goes 0-for-4
    Miguel Cabrera (biceps) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in his return to the Tigers' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Cabrera made an early exit from Monday's series opener against the Royals with a left biceps strain and he was held out of Tuesday's game. Maybe he should have taken one more day off. The veteran slugger is slashing .307/.381/.545 with 27 home runs and 77 RBI in 118 games this season for Detroit. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:30 am
  • Jorge Soler hits three-run homer
    Jorge Soler went 2-for-4 and hit a three-run homer against the Brewers on Wednesday.

    Advice: If not for Chris Coghlan's injury, Soler probably would have been on the bench for this one. However, he's been killing the ball since returning from the disabled list 12 days ago, and now that Coghlan is down, he's due more playing time against righties. It's time to pick him back up in mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:27 pm
  • Brock Holt goes 3-for-3 against Orioles
    Brock Holt went 3-for-3 with a double as the Red Sox's third baseman on Wednesday.

    Advice: Shaw hadn't started at third base all season until Aug. 7. Now he's done so on back-to-back days, in large part because Hanley Ramirez is away and Travis Shaw is playing first. Still, Holt makes more sense at third than Aaron Hill against a left-hander and there's a decent chance he'll outproduce Shaw the rest of the way. He should remain a factor at the hot corner.

  • Mauer dealing with minor quad issue
    Twins manager Paul Molitor said that Joe Mauer was scratched from Wednesday's lineup against the Braves due to a sore quad.

    Advice: Mauer's quad soreness is just thought to be minor, though, to the point where Molitor believes the long-time face of the Twins could be back in the lineup for Thursday's road date with the Royals. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:44 pm

  • Joe Mauer smacks 10th home run Tuesday
    Joe Mauer went 3-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Braves.

    Advice: Mauer took Jose Ramirez deep in the eighth inning for his 10th dinger of the season. The first baseman is now batting .436 so far in August, pushing his season line up to a nice .284/.384/.417. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:04 pm

  • Iglesias (hamstring) running on treadmill
    Jose Iglesias (hamstring) has been running on an anti-gravity treadmill for the last few days.

    Advice: The shortstop told reporters Tuesday that he's already feeling significant improvement in his left hamstring. Iglesias strained the hammy on August 11 and landed on the 15-day disabled list the next day. He could be ready for activation when first eligible. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:30 pm

  • Miguel Cabrera (biceps) out of lineup Tuesday
    Miguel Cabrera (biceps) is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Royals.

    Advice: Cabrera made an early exit from Monday's game due to a left biceps strain. It's not considered serious, but the Tigers aren't going to rush him back into the lineup. Jarrod Saltalamacchia will start in his place at first base. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:37 pm
  • Miggy Cabrera day-to-day with biceps strain
    Miguel Cabrera is day-to-day with a left biceps strain.

    Advice: Cabrera was forced to make an early exit from Monday's game after four innings and now we know why. It doesn't sound like a long-term issue, we should know more on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:50 pm
  • Miguel Cabrera exits with apparent injury
    Miguel Cabrera exited Monday's game against the Royals after four innings with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Well, that's no good. The exact reason for his exit isn't yet clear, but Jarrod Saltalamacchia replaced Cabrera at first base to begin the fifth inning. The Tigers should pass along an update soon. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:25 pm
  • Loney not in Monday's lineup
    James Loney is not in Monday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: He's sitting against left-hander Robbie Ray. Lefty-masher Wilmer Flores will start at first base and bat fifth while T.J. Rivera will play third base. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:01 pm
