• Braves push Max Fried's start back until Friday
    Braves manager Brian Snitker told reporters on Sunday that Max Fried's start will be pushed back from Tuesday to Friday.

    Advice: The club simply wants to get the left-hander a couple of extra days of rest in between starts -- while also lining him up to take on the division-rival Mets. The Braves have yet to announce a replacement for Tuesday's start, though it's possible that they may end up going with a bullpen game. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 6:30 pm
     
  • Andre Jackson collects three inning save Sunday
    Andre Jackson stuck out three in a three-inning save Sunday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Jackson was recalled Saturday night after righty Dustin May was placed on the injured list and quickly contributed to the team with a key three-inning save on Sunday. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts has said the Dodgers will be moving away from Craig Kimbrel in save situations but Jackson's save here should be considered a one-off.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 6:11 pm
     
  • Wainwright gives up four runs in loss to Dodgers
    Adam Wainwright surrendered four runs on six hits over three innings in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Wainwright acknowledged after his last start that he is dealing with right arm fatigue. The 41-year-old veteran didn't last long on Sunday after allowing four runs across six hits while walking two and only striking out one batter. He will look to right the ship Sunday against the Pirates in St. Louis. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 6:02 pm
     
  • Grove picks up his first victory Sunday vs STL
    Michael Grove allowed one run and struck out three over five innings in his first major league win Sunday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Grove was a surprise starter after Tyler Anderson was pushed back a couple of days. The move didn't phase the 25-years has he struck out three while allowing just one run against the formidable AL Central leading Cardinals. Grove generated nine swings and misses and posted a respectable 32 percent CSW. The Dodgers have secured their playoff spot but will give Grove another chance at starting as he will face the Rockies at home on Saturday. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 6:02 pm

  • Zach Plesac (hand) expected to return on Friday
    Zach Plesac (hand) is expected to return to the Guardians rotation on Friday against the Royals.

    Advice: The right-hander pitched well against the Toledo Mudhens in his minor league rehab start at Triple-A Columbus on Saturday, allowing just two hits and striking out five over five shutout innings. Plesac has been sidelined since September 2 after he fractured his hand while punching the mound in a temper tantrum after giving up a home run. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 5:52 pm

  • JP Sears catalogues yet another loss Sunday
    JP Sears allowed six runs on eight hits over 3 2/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Mets. 

    Advice: Sears skated through the first inning but the Mets juggernaut offense was too much to keep at bay. After Pete Alonso reached on an infield single, Eduardo Escobar quickly smacked a single to right field. Tyler Naquin would connect with a four-seamer that landed in center field, driving in Alonso from third base. Things would get even worse and the Mets quickly added on five more runs before the 26-year-old departed in the fourth inning. Sears generated seven swings and misses and posted a lowly 23 percent CSW. He will face the Mariners and Luis Castillo in Seattle on Saturday. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 5:34 pm

  • Max Scherzer fans six in victory against A's
    Max Scherzer struck out seven, walked none, and allowed a lone run to score across six innings of work Sunday in a win over the A's.

    Advice: Scherzer jumped up to 91 pitches thrown in his second game off the injured list due to an oblique injury. The future Hall of Famer was his vintage self and the only damage was a solo homer of red-hot Seth Brown's bat. Scherzer generated 10 swings and misses and posted a 33 percent CSW. He will carry a pristine 2.13 ERA, 0.88 WHIP across 139 2/3 innings to Atlanta to face the Braves Sunday. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 5:34 pm
     
  • Camilo Doval snags his 26th save on Sunday
    Camilo Doval struck out one batter while allowing one run to score but recorded the save against the Diamondbacks on Sunday. 

    Advice: Doval was a bit shaky Sunday in Phoenix. Christian Walker smacked a quick double to deep right-center field before an awful four-pitch walk to Sergio Alcántara with one lone out. Pavin Smith connected with a sacrifice fly that scored Walked to give the Diamondbacks a fighting chance in the bottom of the ninth. Doval reared back and struck out rookie Corbin Caroll to secure the win and his 26th save of the year. The 25-year-old has been outstanding with a 2.48 ERA and 1.22 WHIP to go along with 26 saves across 65 1/3 innings. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 4:58 pm
  • Drey Jameson has another scoreless outing Sunday
    Drey Jameson did not surrender a run on five hits over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Giants Sunday.

    Advice: Jameson scattered five hits and stuck out five Giants over 5 1/3 innings of impressive work Sunday. The 25-year-old has faced exclusively NL West lineups but has yet to give up more than two earned run in an outing. Jameson generated 13 swings and misses and posted a 29 percent CSW. He will carry a pristine 0.98 ERA to Phoenix as he faces the same San Franciso Giants lineup Sunday. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 4:48 pm
