  • Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) out again Wed.
    Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Ramirez hasn't played in a week due to fatigue in his right shoulder. He'll play first base when he does return to action, but Travis Shaw is at the position again Wednesday. 39 minutes ago
  • Springer (wrist) shooting for Friday return
    George Springer (wrist) will be activated from the disabled list as soon as Friday.

    Advice: Springer will talk to Astros manager A.J. Hinch on Thursday after what could be his final rehab game with Double-A Corpus Christi. Assuming he tells the skipper that his wrist feels fine, he should be back in the Astros' lineup on Friday. Springer has four hits in 16 at-bats in his first four rehab games with Corpus Christi. He's been sidelined since early July with a fractured right wrist. Today, 7:00 am
    15-Day DL
    5:10 pm vs Sea
  • Luke Jackson recalled from Triple-A
    Rangers recalled RHP Luke Jackson from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Jackson was up with the big club last month but didn't make an appearance. The 24-year-old will be used in long relief. Today, 6:29 am
  • Joey Gallo recalled from Triple-A
    Rangers recalled 3B/OF Joey Gallo from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Gallo faded after a hot start with the Rangers and then hit just .195 after being demoted to Round Rock. Still, he's obviously very intriguing with his power and could get some starts in left field with Josh Hamilton (knee) limited to pinch-hitting duty at the moment. Today, 6:26 am
  • Andrus steals home as Rangers top Padres
    Elvis Andrus went 1-for-4 with two RBI and a straight steal of home in Tuesday's win against the Padres.

    Advice: Andrus knocked in three runs with a seventh-inning single, though one of the runs came in after the ball was kicked out of the glove of catcher Derek Norris. With new catcher Austin Hedges behind the plate, Andrus stole home off of reliever Kevin Quackenbush. The shortstop has multiple hits in three straight games and is now batting .262/.307/.357 with 50 RBI and 56 runs scored. Yesterday, 10:52 pm
  • Arenado blasts 32nd homer among three hits
    Nolan Arenado went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored against the Diamondbacks in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader.

    Advice: Arenado had an RBI single in the first inning before hitting a solo homer in the third. The third baseman homered in both games of Tuesday's doubleheader, finishing 5-for-8 with three RBI and three runs scored on the day. The 24-year-old is enjoying a tremendous offensive season in Colorado, leading the league in both homers and RBI. Arenado is batting .280/.317/.556 with 32 homers, 77 runs scored and 98 RBI on the year. Yesterday, 10:45 pm
  • Martin gives up 5 runs in 3 innings, loses
    Cody Martin made his first major league start and lost to the Angels on Tuesday after allowing five runs over three innings.

    Advice: Martin put up a 5.40 ERA as a reliever with the Braves this year before the A's purchased him in early July. The right-hander gave up six hits and a walk without recording a strikeout. Four of the runs came in a tough third inning. Martin will try for better results in next week's home start against the Astros. Yesterday, 10:18 pm
  • Calhoun's 3-hit night leads Angels over A's
    Kole Calhoun went 3-for-5 with an RBI single and a solo home run as the Angels topped the Athletics on Tuesday.

    Advice: Calhoun started the scoring in four-run third inning with an RBI infield single. He tacked on a solo home run in the seventh to push the Angels' lead to 6-1. The outfielder is batting .264/.321/.438 with 21 home runs and 69 RBI on the year. Yesterday, 10:13 pm
  • Pederson hits crucial HR as LAD tops SFG
    Joc Pederson went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, helping the Dodgers eke out a win against the Giants on Tuesday.

    Advice: Pederson made it a 2-0 game when he sent a Madison Bumgarner offering over the fence in right-center in the seventh inning. It proved to be the deciding factor as the Giants tacked on a run in the next inning. Pederson's numbers have tapered off in the second half and he's lost playing time, but he still has a productive .213/.354/.441 triple-slash line along with 24 home runs and 48 RBI. Yesterday, 10:07 pm
  • Rendon has two-run double in loss to Cards
    Anthony Rendon had a two-run double and two runs scored against the Cardinals on Tuesday.

    Advice: Rendon's two-run double in the third inning got the Nationals on the board, and he scored the third run of the game later in the inning. The double extended Rendon's modest hitting streak to 10 games, and he's hitting .375 (15-for-40) in that span. The good stretch has Rendon's overall line up to .268/.348/.366 as he continues to round into form after a number of injuries marred his first half. Yesterday, 9:49 pm
  • Gonzales gives up four runs in spot start
    Marco Gonzales allowed four runs on seven hits over 2 2/3 innings against the Nationals on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gonzales, filling in for Carlos Martinez, was shaky in his first start of 2015. The southpaw allowed a homer among the Nats' seven hits, also walking one and striking out one. Gonzales will likely stay with the club through September but isn't guaranteed another start. Yesterday, 9:37 pm
  • Kinsler homers, has three RBI in win over KC
    Ian Kinsler went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI as the Tigers downed the Royals 6-5 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Kinsler knocked an RBI single in the fourth inning before delivering a big two-run blast in the seventh. The homer, his 10th of the season, ended up being the difference in the game. It hasn't been a great year for the Tigers as a whole but the 33-year-old is doing his part, batting .306/.357/.452 with 64 RBI, 84 runs scored and eight steals through 129 games. Yesterday, 9:30 pm
  • Gose has two hits, two runs scored Tuesday
    Anthony Gose went 2-for-4 with two runs scored against the Royals on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gose, back in the leadoff spot, had leadoff singles and scored in both the first and seventh innings. The 25-year-old is batting .253/.311/.363 with four homers, 54 runs scored and 19 stolen bases in his first year with the Tigers. Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • Cueto gives up four runs in loss to Tigers
    Johnny Cueto didn't have his best stuff Tuesday, allowing nine hits and four runs over six innings in a loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: It was another subpar start in a Royals uniform for Cueto, who is now 2-4 with a 4.21 ERA through seven starts as an American League pitcher. Arguably most troubling is the fact that he struck out just two in the game, the sixth time in his last 10 contests that he's struck out four or fewer. Alas, Cueto still owns a 3.04 ERA overall, and it's not as though the Royals will stop running him out every five days. He'll look to get things straightened out Sunday against the White Sox. Yesterday, 9:12 pm
  • Verlander holds Royals to two earned runs
    Justin Verlander allowed four runs -- two earned -- over 6 2/3 innings in a win over the Royals on Tuesday.

    Advice: Errors in two separate innings contributed to two of the Royals' runs against the right-hander, and he also served up a solo homer to Kendrys Morales in the outing. In total, Verlander gave up seven hits and a walk while striking out four. It wasn't quite a one-hit complete game, but they're both wins in the scorebook. Verlander will take a 3-6 record, 3.40 ERA and 1.08 WHIP into Sunday's game against the Indians. Yesterday, 9:11 pm
  • Hanley won't play any more OF this season
    Hanley Ramirez won't play the outfield again this season.

    Advice: Red Sox interim manager Torey Lovullo made that announcement Tuesday. It's a non-issue right now with Hanley still sidelined by a sore right shoulder, but Lovullo just wanted to lay out that he's committed to Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., and Rusney Castillo as Boston's starting outfield. Hanley could get some starts at first base down the stretch. That's where he'll open the 2016 season. Yesterday, 1:56 pm
  • Cardinals recall Marco Gonzales to start
    Cardinals recalled LHP Marco Gonzales from Triple-A Memphis.

    Advice: Gonzales will make a spot start Tuesday night against the Nationals. He's filling in for Carlos Martinez, who will take a turn off because of a minor back injury (and to protect his workload). Gonzales will probably move to long relief after Tuesday's start. Yesterday, 1:37 pm
  • Athletics recall Cody Martin
    Athletics recalled RHP Cody Martin from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: The A's traded for Martin in early July. He'll have a chance to impress with rosters expanding, as he's scheduled to start Tuesday's contest against the Angels. Over 88 1/3 Triple-A innings, he posted a 4.08 ERA while striking out 84. He struggled in 21 2/3 relief innings at the big league level earlier this season to the tune of a 5.40 ERA. Yesterday, 12:58 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) out again Tuesday
    Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) is out of the starting lineup again Tuesday against the Yankees.

    Advice: Ramirez has now missed five straight starts due to a sore right shoulder. The Red Sox don't need to place him on the disabled list at this point in this season, but it's unclear when he'll be ready to play again. It's a tricky spot for fantasy owners. Yesterday, 12:10 pm
  • Cody Martin to start on Tuesday
    Cody Martin will start on Tuesday versus the Angels.

    Advice: Acquired last month from the Braves for international bonus slot money, Martin holds a 5.40 ERA but a 24/7 K/BB ratio over 21 2/3 relief innings in the majors this season. He's put up a 4.08 mark with 84 punchouts across 88 1/3 Triple-A frames. Chris Bassitt had been scheduled to start Tuesday but will be pushed back. Monday, 4:20 pm
  • Marco Gonzales to make spot start Tuesday
    Marco Gonzales will be recalled to start on Tuesday versus the Nationals in place of Carlos Martinez (back).

    Advice: Gonzales has been limited to just 75 1/3 innings this season due to a pectoral/shoulder issue, but he's posted a 3.26 ERA since returning from a setback in mid-July. It's possible he could be in line for a few starts this month as the Cardinals look to rest Martinez and Michael Wacha. Monday, 2:59 pm
  • Hanley (shoulder) out again Monday vs. Yanks
    Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) is out of the Red Sox lineup again on Monday night against the Yankees.

    Advice: Ramirez missed Boston's entire weekend series against the Mets with fatigue in his right shoulder. He's been bothered by several injuries throughout 2015 but has yet to spend a day on the disabled list. It's been a source of frustration for fantasy owners, and it's not clear how long this current absence is going to last. Monday, 12:19 pm
  • Joc Pederson whiffs twice in loss to Dodgers
    Joc Pederson helped contribute to the Dodgers offensive ineptitude on Sunday, going 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts as they were no-hit by Jake Arrieta.

    Advice: It was the second time in the last nine days that the Dodgers were held hitless. Pederson has been an abomination at the plate since the calendar flipped to July, batting .147 (20-for-136) with 51 strikeouts. Sunday, 7:52 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) held out again
    Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's missed the entire weekend series versus the Braves due to fatigue in his left shoulder. Alejandro De Aza is in left field again in Ramirez's place. Sunday, 7:03 am
  • Kinsler plates lone run in loss to Blue Jays
    Ian Kinsler plated the Tigers' lone run as they were obliterated by the Blue Jays in Toronto on Saturday.

    Advice: His run-scoring fielder's choice in the third inning was the extent of their offensive output against Drew Hutchison and company. He finished the afternoon 1-for-3 and is now hitting .307/.358/.449 with 61 RBI in what has been a terrific season for the second baseman. Saturday, 1:34 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez remains out of Red Sox lineup
    Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) remains out of the Red Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Ramirez was a late scratch from Friday's lineup due to fatigue in his left shoulder. Alejandro De Aza will start in his place in left field and bat eighth for the Red Sox against Jacob deGrom and the Mets on Saturday. Saturday, 9:32 am
  • Calhoun can't find traction vs Bauer
    Kole Calhoun went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday's loss to the Indians.

    Advice: Calhoun just couldn't get anything going from the lead-off spot. Given that the Angels only managed five total hits for the contest, he was just a cog in the machine of failure. He's hitting .262/.321/.431 with 19 homers and 66 RBI this season. Friday, 6:56 pm
  • Anthony Gose goes deep in loss to Blue Jays
    Anthony Gose belted his fourth home run of the season in a losing effort against the Blue Jays on Friday.

    Advice: His two-run shot off R.A. Dickey in the seventh inning pulled the Tigers to within two runs at 5-3, but that would be as close as they'd get. He finished the night 1-for-3 and is now hitting .253/.308/.366 with four homers and 23 RBI on the season. Friday, 6:38 pm
  • Springer (wrist) to begin rehab assignment
    George Springer (wrist) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Corpus Christi on Saturday.

    Advice: "George is ready to go," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Friday of Springer. "Today was one of the best days he's had." Springer is hoping to be activated by the Astros sometime next week if all goes well. He's been sidelined since early July with a fractured right wrist. Friday, 3:00 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Hanley Ramirez battling shoulder fatigue
    Hanley Ramirez was scratched from the Red Sox' lineup Friday due to right shoulder fatigue.

    Advice: It's yet another new ailment for Ramirez, who has somehow managed to avoid the disabled list this season despite a host of different maladies. Jackie Bradley took his spot in left field. Friday, 2:18 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez scratched from lineup Friday
    Hanley Ramirez was scratched from the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

    Advice: It's unclear what the reasoning is for the scratch, but Ramirez has had a foot issue recently. The Red Sox should have more on his status shortstop. Jackie Bradley took his spot in left field. Friday, 1:58 pm
  • Andrus doubles and singles vs TOR
    Elvis Andrus went 2-for-4 with a double in Thursday afternoon's win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: The double was Andrus' 24th of the season. While he's hitting just .259/.305/.353 with six homers, 47 RBI and 53 runs scored, the numbers are much nicer since the All-Star Break. Entering Thursday's contest, he was slashing .291/.311/.411 in the 37 games that the Rangers had played following the Midsummer Classic. Thursday, 2:57 pm
  • Johnny Cueto gives up three homers
    Johnny Cueto was tagged for six runs and three homers in five innings by the Orioles on Wednesday.

    Advice: Cueto is now just 2-3 with a 3.95 ERA since coming over from the Reds. Still, since the Royals' lead is comfy, there's no griping yet, at least none apart from his fantasy owners. The three homers he allowed tonight were one more than he had allowed in his previous 10 starts combined. Wednesday, 8:57 pm
  • Verlander flirts with no-no, shuts out Angels
    Justin Verlander flirted with a no-hitter, but settled for a one-hit shutout of the Angels on Wednesday.

    Advice: Verlander lost his no-hit bid with no outs in the ninth inning when Chris Iannetta hit a double that hit the chalk down the left field line. The right-hander struck out Kaleb Cowart, got David DeJesus to pop out, and Kole Calhoun to fly out to end the game. He struck out nine and walked two in the effort. It seems Verlander is back on track, as he has allowed only four runs (one earned) in his last four starts spanning 29 innings. Overall this season, he has a 3.45 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP, and a 71/20 K/BB ratio over 86 innings. Verlander will take on the Blue Jays in Toronto next. Wednesday, 7:11 pm
  • Arenado getting night off Wednesday vs. ATL
    Nolan Arenado is out of the Rockies' starting lineup on Wednesday night against the Braves.

    Advice: It's just the fifth game Arenado hasn't started this season. Daniel Descalso will get the nod at third base while Arenado rests his body and mind for a night. Wednesday, 2:00 pm
  • Springer (wrist) aims for rehab this weekend
    George Springer (wrist) is on track to begin a rehab assignment this weekend.

    Advice: Springer has taken batting practice the last couple days and will do it again on Friday when he travels with the Astros to Minnesota. He's hoping to be activated by the Astros sometime next week. Springer has been sidelined since early July with a fractured right wrist. Wednesday, 8:40 am
    15-Day DL

  • Hanley confirms he's moving to 1B next year
    Hanley Ramirez acknowledged to reporters Tuesday that he is moving to first base next year.

    Advice: The first directive from new Red Sox president Dave Dombrowski, perhaps? Hanley was spotted taking grounders and making throws on Tuesday afternoon in Chicago and said after the workout that he could begin seeing starts at first base down the stretch this season. "I'm looking forward to it," said Hanley, who has been a disaster in left field. Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., and Rusney Castillo make up the outfield of the future in Boston. Tuesday, 2:49 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez taking grounders at first base
    Hanley Ramirez took grounders and made throws at first base on Tuesday afternoon.

    Advice: Hanley has been a huge disappointment defensively in his first year as an everyday outfielder. An eventual move to first base makes sense for the former shortstop with Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., and Rusney Castillo lined up as Boston's outfield of the future. Ramirez is under contract with the Red Sox through 2018. Tuesday, 1:29 pm
  • Kinsler reaches base 5 times in Tigers' loss
    Ian Kinsler went 3-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored, but the Tigers were defeated by the Reds on Monday.

    Advice: Kinsler singled and scored in the first and fourth innings, but the Tigers weren't able to keep up with the Reds' offense. The second baseman is on a seven-game hitting streak and holds an .805 OPS, the highest his OPS has been at any point this season after April 15 (Tigers' game number nine). He has a league-leading total of 153 hits and has scored 83 runs while knocking in 59. Monday, 7:47 pm
  • Rendon slugs three-run HR, Nats beat Brewers
    Anthony Rendon slugged a three-run homer in the Nationals' 9-5 defeat of the Brewers on Sunday.

    Advice: Rendon's three-run shot blew the game open in the bottom of the fifth inning. He's been swinging the bat well over the last couple of days and would seem very capable of a big push down the stretch. The 25-year-old is currently sitting on a disappointing .707 OPS. Aug 23, 2:11 pm
  • Springer (wrist) taking batting practice Mon.
    George Springer (wrist) will take batting practice on Monday.

    Advice: Springer has ramped up his hitting drills in recent days and is finally ready for some live BP. He could begin a rehab assignment later this week if all goes well, with a return on or around September 1 looking likely. Springer has been on the shelf since early July with a fractured right wrist. Aug 23, 9:15 am
    15-Day DL
    5:10 pm vs Sea
  • Joc Pederson sitting out on Sunday
    Joc Pederson is not in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's just a day off for the slumping outfielder. Enrique Hernandez is in center field in place of Pederson, who has just five hits over his last 54 at-bats. Aug 23, 8:16 am
  • Springer (wrist) to take live BP this week
    George Springer (wrist) will take live batting practice sometime this week during the Astros' road trip.

    Advice: He recently began hitting off a tee and is close to taking the next step. There's a chance Springer could also be ready to begin a rehab assignment before the end of the week. He's tracking toward an activation on or around September 1. Aug 23, 8:14 am
    15-Day DL
    5:10 pm vs Sea
  • Elvis Andrus not in Sunday's lineup
    Elvis Andrus is not in the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a simple day of rest. Hanser Alberto is at shortstop in Andrus' place. Aug 23, 7:13 am
