  • 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. Rotoworld.com 34 minutes ago
  • David Wright not in Mets lineup on Saturday
    David Wright is not in the Mets starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Red Sox.

    Advice: it's nothing more than a day of rest for Wright who is still being eased back into full-time action. Juan Uribe will draw the start in his place at third base and bat sixth for the Mets against Joe Kelly and the Red Sox. Rotoworld.com 57 minutes ago
  • J.D. Martinez not in Tigers lineup Saturday
    J.D. Martinez is not in the Tigers starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: It's nothing more than a routine day of rest for the 28-year-old slugger. He's enjoying another monster season offensively, slashing .289/.350/.562 with 34 homers and 87 RBI. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:13 am
  • Blue Jays recall Hutchison from Triple-A
    Blue Jays recalled RHP Drew Hutchison from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Hutchison will return to the rotation on Saturday against the Tigers. The 24-year-old hurler sits at 12-2 on the season despite a 5.06 ERA and 1.44 WHIP through 131 2/3 innings in his first 24 starts. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:07 am
  • Blanco reaches three times in win on Friday
    Gregor Blanco (hip) showed no signs of rust in his return to the Giants starting lineup on Friday, going 2-for-4 plus a walk in a victory over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Blanco had missed the previous two games due to a strained left hip. He has done a terrific job for the Giants this season, slashing .294/.378/.412 with three homers, 24 RBI and 12 stolen bases in 289 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:19 am
  • Fowler (leg) singles in return to Cubs lineup
    Dexter Fowler (leg) went 1-for-4 with a single in his return to the Cubs starting lineup on Friday.

    Advice: Fowler had missed the previous two contests due to discomfort in his right shin. The primary table-setter atop the Cubs lineup, he's hitting .252/.348/.418 with 14 homers and 84 runs scored in his first season with the Cubs. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:16 am
  • Kelby Tomlinson delivers game-winner
    Kelby Tomlinson singled in Brandon Belt in the bottom of the ninth to give the Giants a 5-4 win over the Cardinals on Friday.

    Advice: Forget Rookie of the Year... Tomlinson might just end up being the NL MVP if this keeps up. He reached four times tonight, picking up two hits and two walks. He hit a grand slam Thursday, and he's batting .364 since his callup. It looks like he'll probably play some outfield after Joe Panik returns. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:39 pm
  • Clayton Kershaw fans 14 in victory
    Clayton Kershaw fanned 14 while holding the Cubs to one run in eight innings Friday in his 11th victory of the year.

    Advice: It was Kershaw's second 14-K game of the year. His career high is 15, established last June against the Rockies. He's fanned 10 or more batters 40 times in his career. The next highest total since Kershaw entered the league in 2008 is Tim Lincecum's 34. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:33 pm
  • Paul Goldschmidt hits 26th homer
    Paul Goldschmidt hit a two-run homer to help the Diamondbacks beat the A's 6-4 on Friday.

    Advice: Goldschmidt's homer came off switch-pitcher Pat Venditte in the seventh inning. He has four homers in his last seven games after going 25 days without one. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:27 pm
  • Brett Lawrie hits long home run
    Brett Lawrie hit a 470-foot homer Friday in the loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: The rest of Oakland's offense isn't doing a whole lot, but Lawrie has 14 hits in his last eight games, including three homers and three doubles. If anything, he's played a little better and stayed healthier than the A's should have expected this year. It just doesn't really make up for losing Josh Donaldson. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:22 pm
  • Iglesias saddled with loss despite 10 K's
    Raisel Iglesias couldn't translate his 10 strikeouts into a win against the Brewers on Friday, as he allowed three runs on four hits over seven innings in the 5-0 defeat.

    Advice: Iglesias struck out 10 Brewers and walked just two, but opposing starter Taylor Jungmann was just a tad bit better. Given that the Reds scored zero runs, Iglesias probably would have been stuck with a loss no matter what he did. He'll try to improve on his 3-6 record when he takes a 3.92 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 87/23 K/BB ratio (across 80 1/3 innings) into his next start, a Wednesday afternoon road outing against the Cubs. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:19 pm
  • Abreu strikes out twice in shutout loss
    Jose Abreu went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Friday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: The White Sox had only four hits as a team, so Abreu probably shouldn't feel too poorly about his off-game. He's slashing .294/.351/.513 with 24 homers and 78 RBI. There are hitters with better numbers, but the 28-year-old first baseman has been one of the most consistent bats in the game this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:57 pm
  • Lowrie can't manage hit in loss to Twins
    Jed Lowrie went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday's loss to the Twins.

    Advice: Lowrie failed to find traction against Kyle Gibson and the Twin bullpen. He's been dealing with a left thumb contusion over the past week, but the scuffles are nothing new. He's hit-less in his last 22 at-bats and now sports a .225/.329/.399 line with five homers and 17 RBI. Injuries have held him to just 41 games this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:34 pm
  • Kazmir pitches seven strong in loss to Twins
    Scott Kazmir pitched well in Friday's loss to the Twins, yielding three runs on three hits over seven innings.

    Advice: The Twins notched a run on the board with a solo homer by Eduardo Nunez in the third, then posted two more in the fourth to account for the rest of the offense in the game. Kazmir struck out six and walked one on the evening. Despite a 7-9 record, he's been money all season long and holds a 2.45 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 137/48 K/BB ratio over 154 innings. He'll have a chance at revenge for Friday's loss next time he takes the ball, as the Twins will be traveling to Houston to play in Kazmir's crib. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:24 pm
  • Bradley homers to center in seventh
    Jackie Bradley Jr. went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Friday's 10-inning win over the Mets.

    Advice: Bradley homered with two outs in the seventh, his sixth long ball of the season. The Red Sox optioned the 25-year-old outfielder to Triple-A in early July before calling him back up on July 29. The Triple-A stint seems to have done Bradley well, as he entered Friday's game hitting .328/.418/.701 with four homers and 20 RBI in the month of August. While there's no guarantee he'll continue to tear the cover off the ball, wise owners in deeper AL-only formats should consider riding this hot streak if he's available for pickup. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Wright notches pair of singles
    David Wright went 2-for-5 with two singles and a run scored in Friday's 10-inning loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Wright missed four months with spinal stenosis, but has come back seemingly as though nothing had happened. In the four games he's played since his return from the disabled list, he's 6-for-20 with a home run, three RBI and six runs scored. There's fantasy value here, particularly with the Mets playing well on offense. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:55 pm
  • 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. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 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. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:58 pm
  • Kelby Tomlinson launches grand slam
    Kelby Tomlinson launched a grand slam in the eighth inning on Thursday, helping to lead the Giants in their 9-1 thrashing of the Cubs.

    Advice: The blast came off of James Russell and was the first home run in Tomlinson's young career. He also singled in the contest, finishing the afternoon 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored. He has done a nice job filling in for the injured Joe Panik, slashing .346/.382/.519 with 11 RBI. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:10 pm
  • J.D. Martinez hits second triple of season
    J.D. Martinez went 1-for-3 with a triple in Thursday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Martinez's triple was the only extra-base hit the Tigers scraped together in the 2-0 loss. It was his second of the season and eighth three-bagger of his career. When he's not flashing his wheels, he's hitting .292/.353/.567 with 34 homers and 87 RBI. Martinez is in the midst of his most productive season at the major league level. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:07 pm
  • David Wright back in Mets' lineup on Thurs.
    David Wright is back in the Mets' starting lineup, batting cleanup and playing third base, Thursday night against the Phillies.

    Advice: Wright was given the night off Wednesday, but he is expected to start the Mets' next three games. The veteran third baseman homered Monday in his first game since April 14 and looks capable of providing significant fantasy value in the middle of an energized Mets lineup. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:43 pm
  • Gregor Blanco (hip) out of SF lineup Thursday
    Gregor Blanco (hip) is out of the Giants' starting lineup Thursday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Blanco was a late scratch from Wednesday's game with a left hip strain, but he felt good running in the outfield on Thursday morning and could be available off the bench already. Juan Perez is starting in center field and batting seventh on Thursday afternoon. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:13 am
  • Dexter Fowler (shin) out Thursday vs. Giants
    Dexter Fowler is out of the Cubs' lineup again on Thursday due to discomfort in his right shin.

    Advice: Fowler also missed Wednesday's game, but X-rays turned up negative and he should be good to go sometime this weekend. Kris Bryant is in right field, Chris Denorfia is in left field, and Matt Szczur is in center field Thursday against the Giants. Denorfia will lead off. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:09 am
  • Goldschmidt smacks solo homer in loss
    Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two strikeouts in Wednesday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Goldschmidt jumped the Diamondbacks out to a 1-0 lead with a solo home run off John Lackey in the first inning, but the team wouldn't score again in the game. The bomb was Goldy's 25th of the season and pushed his RBI total to 94. Pair those counting stats with a .331/.446/.571 triple-slash and you have yourself a legitimate MVP candidate. Oh, and he's also stolen a career-high 20 bases. Not too shabby. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:38 pm
  • Martinez blasts 34th homer as Tigers top LAA
    J.D. Martinez blasted his 34th home run of the season, finishing 2-for-4 in Wednesday's victory over the Angels.

    Advice: Martinez led off the fourth inning with a double but was stranded. In the fifth, he made it a four-run frame when he drove a Hector Santiago pitch to left field for a two-run round-tripper. Along with 34 homers, Martinez has plated 87 runs while batting .291/.353/.564 in what has been a tremendous follow-up to his breakout in 2014. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:17 pm
  • Blanco a late scratch with left hip strain
    Gregor Blanco was a late scratch from Wednesday's lineup with a left hip strain.

    Advice: Blanco was replaced in the lineup by Juan Perez. It's another blow to a team ravaged by injuries this year. The Giants should provide a clearer outlook on Blanco shortly. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:01 pm
  • Fowler gets day off Wednesday against Giants
    Dexter Fowler is not in the Cubs' lineup against the Giants on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's just a day off for the outfielder, who is hitting .252/.349/.420 with 14 homers, 17 steals and 84 runs scored atop the Cubs' lineup. Chris Denorfia got the start in center field in place of Fowler on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:23 pm
  • David Wright not in lineup Wednesday
    David Wright is not in the Mets' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Wright played in the first two games of the series against the Phillies but is sitting out the third, which could be a pretty normal routine as he returns from spinal stenosis. Juan Uribe is at third base. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:48 pm
  • 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. Rotoworld.com 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. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:29 pm
  • Lowrie (thumb) back in Tuesday's lineup
    Jed Lowrie (thumb) is back in Tuesday's lineup against the Yankees.

    Advice: Lowrie sat out Monday after leaving Sunday's game with a left thumb contusion. He's batting just .197/.270/.318 with one home run and seven RBI since coming off the DL. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:54 pm
  • David Wright in lineup again Tuesday
    David Wright is in the Mets' lineup again Tuesday against the Phillies, batting cleanup.

    Advice: Wright went 2-for-5 with a homer and a walk Monday in his first game since April 14. He'll likely need regular rest as he manages his spinal stenosis condition, but it's a good sign that he feels well enough to play consecutive days. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:51 pm
  • Abreu's homer not enough as White Sox lose
    Jose Abreu went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run but the White Sox were defeated by the Red Sox on Monday.

    Advice: Abreu gave the White Sox a briefly-held 1-0 lead with a solo home run in the first inning off of Joe Kelly. He'd add a double and score in the ninth inning, helping the White Sox attempt to overcome a three-run deficit. Abreu has homered in back-to-back games, giving him 24 on the season along with 78 RBI and a .295/.354/.519 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:47 pm
  • Wright homers in return to the Mets' lineup
    David Wright, playing in his first game since April 14, homered as the Mets trampled the Phillies on Monday.

    Advice: Wright made a grand entrance, slamming an Adam Morgan pitch into the second deck at Citizens Bank Park in his first at-bat of the game, putting the Mets on the board at 4-1 in the second inning. He would finish 2-for-5 with a walk. Wright carries a .342/.390/.500 batting line with two home runs and five RBI in 41 plate appearances this season. The Mets plan to ease the third baseman back by giving him regular rest. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:28 pm
  • Martinez hits 3-run homer but the Tigers lose
    J.D. Martinez doubled and hit a three-run home run across five at-bats in Monday's loss to the Reds.

    Advice: Martinez started the scoring, plating three with a home run off of Keyvius Sampson in the top of the first inning. It was a lead the Tigers would hold until deflating in a 10-run bottom of the sixth. Martinez has gone yard 33 times this season, knocking in 84 runs while batting .288/.350/.554. It has truly been a remarkable year for the Astros castoff. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:49 pm
  • David Wright batting cleanup in return Monday
    Mets activated 3B David Wright from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Wright is starting at third base and batting cleanup in his first major league game since April 14. The veteran third baseman went 9-for-28 (.321) with five walks on his eight-game minor league rehab assignment and will be worth starting in standard fantasy leagues on days he plays. Mets manager Terry Collins has said that Wright will get regular days off out of the gate. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:47 pm
  • Kershaw strikes out 10 in domination of HOU
    Clayton Kershaw pitched a superb game in Sunday's no-decision against the Astros, firing eight innings of one-run ball in the team's eventual 3-2 loss.

    Advice: Kershaw scattered seven hits while striking out 10 without a walk in the typically superb performance. He's surrendered more than three earned runs just four times in 25 starts and his 2.29 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 222/32 K/BB ratio across 177 innings are clearly in the range of the NL Cy Young, unless it's stolen out from under him by the likes of teammate Zack Greinke. Kershaw will host the Cubs next weekend in what should be a fun series as we near the stretch run. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:06 pm
  • Lowrie diagnosed with left thumb contusion
    Jed Lowrie is listed as day-to-day after being diagnosed with a left thumb contusion.

    Advice: Lowrie was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Dodgers after sustaining the injury. He should be ready to rejoin the Astros lineup at some point early in the week. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:26 pm
  • Iglesias fans 13 in a loss to the D'Backs
    Raisel Iglesias pitched well, allowing two runs (one earned) in seven innings while striking out 13, but still took the loss on Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: The 13 punch-outs set a new career-best for Iglesias, whose previous career-high was eight. He gave up a solo home run to Welington Castillo in the fourth inning, and a Joey Votto throwing error allowed another run to score in the sixth. He gave up three hits and three walks on the afternoon. In August, Iglesias has a terrific 1.93 ERA over five starts. Overall, he owns a 3.93 ERA with a 1.15 WHIP and a 77/21 K/BB ratio in 73 1/3 innings. The right-hander will take the mound in Milwaukee against the Brewers next. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:15 pm
  • Jed Lowrie exits with possible hand injury
    Jed Lowrie left Sunday's game against the Dodgers with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: Lowrie flied out in the bottom of the sixth inning and then had to be replaced to start the seventh. It's possible he did something to his hand on a swing, but the Astros should provide an update shortly. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:11 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez sitting out on Sunday
    Hanley Ramirez is not in the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a routine day off. Jackie Bradley is in left field while Ramirez rests. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:30 am
  • Kazmir strikes out eight Dodgers in 6 IP
    Scott Kazmir kept the Dodgers in check during Saturday's win, surrendering one run on six hits over six innings.

    Advice: Kazmir fanned eight and walked just one. The only run to score against him came home in the sixth inning when Justin Turner managed an RBI single. Otherwise, the southpaw controlled the action. As he's done for most of the season. Kazmir boasts a 2.39 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 131/47 K/BB ratio across 147 innings. He'll hit the dusty trail for a road start against the Twins next time he toes the rubber. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:19 pm
  • Goldschmidt homers twice and drives in four
    Paul Goldschmidt terrorized the Reds in Saturday's 11-7 win, finishing 4-for-5 with a pair of two-run homers, four total RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base.

    Advice: This was Goldschmidt's second four-hit game of the season. He started off the hit parade with a two-run homer against Reds starter Andrew DeSclafani in the first inning to give the Snakes a 3-0 advantage, then smacked another two-run bomb in the seventh inning to push his team's lead to 8-5. He'll be on the short-list for NL MVP when the dust of the season has settled, as he's hitting .331/.444/.568 with 24 home runs, 93 RBI and 20 steals. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:04 pm
  • Ramirez doubles in loss to Royals
    Hanley Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a double in Saturday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: The double was just Ramirez's 11th of the season. He's been one of the worst regular starters since the middle of July, hitting just .191/.214/.234 in 98 post-All-Star at-bats. To be fair, he is dealing with a foot injury this month, but the numbers he's posted for the season (.254/.294/.433 with 19 homers, 53 RBI and six steals) simply haven't been what the Red Sox paid for in the off-season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:13 pm
  • David Wright (back) played final rehab game
    David Wright (back) played six innings at third base Saturday afternoon at High-A St. Lucie.

    Advice: That should be the final rehab game for Wright, who is expected to rejoin the Mets on Monday. The veteran third baseman went 9-for-28 (.321) with five walks and six strikeouts during his rehab assignment. He's not going to play every day out of the gate, but Wright could regain some value in deeper mixed fantasy leagues if his health cooperates down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:10 pm
  • Brett Lawrie (back) returns to lineup
    Brett Lawrie (back) is back in the Athletics' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Lawrie missed the previous three contests with a back injury. He sports a disappointing .263/.299/.399 batting line and 106/18 K/BB ratio on the season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:35 pm
  • David Wright (back) won't play every day
    Mets manager Terry Collins has conceded that David Wright (back) won't play every day upon his activation from the disabled list.

    Advice: It's no surprise given that Wright hasn't played since mid-April due to spinal stenosis. "I talked to Dave today.... I don’t know how many days a week, but he certainly won’t be that everyday guy until we know his back is 100%; that may not be until next spring," Collins said. The Mets will mix in Juan Uribe at third base on days Wright sits. Wright is expected back on Monday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:52 am
  • Abreu doubles, drives in three vs Angels
    Jose Abreu went 1-for-5 with a two-run double and three total RBI in Thursday's win over the Angels.

    Advice: Abreu drove in the first run of the game with an RBI ground out in the opening frame, then notched a two-run double in the fifth to help chase Angels starter Nick Tropeano. The 28-year-old slugger has been the model of consistency this season, as he's hit at least .293 and slugged at least .515 in every month other than May. And even in May, he still slashed a perfectly OK .274/.336/.406. Overall, Abreu's humming along to the tune of a .294/.355/.507 batting line with 22 home runs and 70 RBI. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:40 pm
  • Angels pitching cools off red-hot Abreu
    Jose Abreu went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Wednesday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Abreu came into the game with seven hits in his last 12 at-bats, but he couldn't get the ball out of the infield against Jered Weaver and the Angel bullpen on Wednesday. With the 0-for-4, he's now hitting .295/.356/.508 with 22 home runs and 70 RBI. His numbers are down across the board from a year ago, though this says more about his monster 2014 season than it does about his fine efforts in 2015. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:09 pm
  • Jackie Bradley Jr. hits three-run homer
    Jackie Bradley Jr. delivered a three-run homer off Corey Kluber on Wednesday.

    Advice: This after he was held out of Tuesday's starting lineup. The Red Sox need to play Bradley regularly the rest of the way to figure out whether he should be a part of their plans for 2016. Maybe tonight's homer was far from a blast and perhaps Saturday's game was a big old fluke, but he's currently sporting an .866 OPS in 89 at-bats this season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:01 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez sitting out on Wednesday
    Hanley Ramirez is not in the Red Sox' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Ramirez returned from his foot injury to play the last two games, but he's back on the bench in this one. It appears the Red Sox are just being careful with him. Alejandro De Aza is in left field. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:47 pm
  • Brett Lawrie dealing with back injury
    Brett Lawrie is sitting out a third straight game Wednesday due to a back injury.

    Advice: It's unclear when his back began bothering him, but it appears to be a day-to-day situation. Danny Valencia is at third base again in Lawrie's place. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:21 am
  • Lawrie benched for third straight game
    Brett Lawrie is not in the Athletics' lineup Wednesday for the third straight game.

    Advice: It appears the A's are just wanting to get an extended look at Danny Valencia at third base. Lawrie is batting just .167/.215/.317 over his last 16 games, although he did homer in his last start on Sunday. He's sporting a disappointing .263/.299/.399 batting line and 106/18 K/BB ratio on the season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:22 am
  • Martinez homers, Tigers defeat the Cubs
    J.D. Martinez went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a sacrifice fly in Tuesday's win against the Cubs.

    Advice: Martinez pushed the Tigers' lead to 3-0 in the first inning when he drilled a Jason Hammel pitch over the fence in center field. Now with 31 home runs, he's on pace to finish the season with 42 -- quite an impressive feat after setting a career-high with 23 last year. Martinez has also knocked in 79 runs while batting .288/.349/.553. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:11 pm
  • Kershaw pitches 7 innings of one-run ball
    Clayton Kershaw pitched seven innings of one-run ball, but was left with a no-decision as the Dodgers fell to the Athletics in 10 innings on Tuesday.

    Advice: Kershaw gave up five hits and a pair of walks while striking out seven. He relented his only run in the second inning on a Marcus Semien ground out. He was in line for the win, but the Dodgers' bullpen blew a three-run lead in the eighth. Kershaw holds a 2.34 ERA with a 0.92 WHIP and a 212/32 K/BB ratio over 169 innings. He'll attempt to get back in the win column next week in Cincinnati against the Reds. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:02 pm
  • Abreu's 3-hit night not enough for White Sox
    Jose Abreu had three hits in four at-bats, including an RBI double, but the White Sox fell to the Angels on Tuesday.

    Advice: Abreu chipped away at the Angels' 4-1 lead, knocking in a run with a double in the sixth inning, but the White Sox otherwise were not able to muster much offense. The 28-year-old has quietly put together a solid .297/.359/.513 line with 22 home runs and 70 RBI. Unfortunately, they're a shade behind last year's output, which helped him take home AL Rookie of the Year honors. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:44 pm
  • Goldschmidt reaches base four times in a loss
    Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-4 with an RBI single and three walks as the Diamondbacks lost in 15 innings to the Pirates on Tuesday.

    Advice: Goldschmidt opened the scoring with an RBI single in the top of the first inning. The Pirates didn't seem interested in pitching to him, walking him in half of his plate appearances the rest of the night. It's hard to blame them, as Goldschmidt is a candidate for the NL MVP award, batting .333/.449/.567 with 22 home runs, 87 RBI, and 19 stolen bases. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:27 pm
