  • Stephen Strasburg goes seven scoreless
    Stephen Strasburg blanked the Braves for seven innings, striking out seven, in a victory Monday.

    Advice: Strasburn walked none for the fourth straight start. He had been 3-7 with a 4.61 ERA against the Braves in his career, including a loss last Wednesday, but he had an easy time tonight. The only time the outcome seemed in doubt was when Rafael Soriano took over in the ninth. Since the Nationals held on to win 4-2, Strasburg moved to 12-11 with a 3.34 ERA. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Raburn (knee) likely to have MRI
    Ryan Raburn is expected to undergo an MRI on his ailing left knee.

    Advice: Raburn left Saturday's game with a hyperextended knee and has yet to experience any improvement. More won't be known about his status until after the exam. "He's still pretty tender, pretty sore," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "We're gonna have [head trainer James Quinlan] talk to [assistant trainer Jeff Desjardins] and see, see if we should get him back to Cleveland. We probably need to get him checked." Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Belt activated from disabled list
    Giants activated 1B Brandon Belt from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Belt said he "felt good, completely normal" during batting practice Monday and feels ready for game action. However, just because he's been activated doesn't mean that he'll start playing regularly right away. He's not in the lineup Monday and the Giants figure to be careful with him down the stretch given that he's been limited to just five games since the beginning of August due to post-concussion issues.

    Freddie Freeman was ejected from Monday's game against the Nationals after spiking his bat following a strikeout.

    Advice: Freeman threw his bat down hard enough that it split in half, which home plate umpire Tim Timmons didn't take kindly to. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez came to Freeman's defense and was also ejected. Rotoworld.com

    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that Michael Morse (oblique) was "tentative" while taking batting practice Monday.

  • Tyson Ross' next start to be pushed back
    Tyson Ross' next scheduled start will be pushed back a few days because the right-hander is dealing with general soreness after his last outing.

    Advice: Ross was rocked for six runs -- four earned -- in three innings Saturday in an uncharacteristically poor showing. It doesn't appear to be something to be overly concerned about at the moment. Robbie Erlin will get the ball on Thursday versus the Phillies, with Ross hoping to start over the weekend or possibly early next week. Rotoworld.com

  • Belt (concussion) could be activated Monday
    Brandon Belt (concussion) could be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

    Advice: Belt said he "felt good, completely normal" during batting practice Monday and feels ready for game action. While his activation from the DL appears imminent, it doesn't mean that he'll return to playing regularly the rest of the way. Belt has been limited to just five games since the beginning of August due to post-concussion issues, so the Giants figure to bring him along slowly. Rotoworld.com

    Anthony Rizzo (back) is in the Cubs' starting lineup on Monday night against the Reds.

    Advice: Rizzo missed nearly three weeks with a back injury. The first baseman is batting .278/.375/.514 with 30 home runs and 71 RBI in 129 games and will look to finish off his breakout 2014 campaign with a bang. Rotoworld.com

    Vance Worley has been moved to the bullpen.

  • Verlander says blister 'flared up' on Sunday
    Justin Verlander acknowledged after his start Sunday that a blister "flared up" on his right hand.

    Advice: Verlander allowed three earned runs on six hits and three walks over 5 2/3 innings, but the Tigers were able to pull out a 6-4 victory against the Indians. Verlander said he doesn't expect the blister to be a major issue going forward. He's 13-12 this season with a 4.81 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in 190 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com

  • Venable (back) used as pinch-hitter Sunday
    Will Venable (back) was used as a pinch-runner in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Venable remained absent from the starting lineup with a back strain. It's a good sign that he felt well enough to run and he's likely to return fully this week. The outfielder has registered a disappointing .222/.287/.318 batting line in 132 games this season. Rotoworld.com

    Alex Avila left Sunday's game against the Indians with lightheadedness.

    Advice: Avila took yet another foul tip off his mask in Sunday's contest. While he didn't display concussion-like symptoms, the Tigers opted to play things cautiously given his history. He is likely to receive an off-day on Monday as well. Rotoworld.com

  • Morse to take BP Monday or Tuesday
    Michael Morse (oblique) won't take batting practice until Monday or Tuesday.

    Advice: Morse had been swinging, but only at about 50 percent. He should return to the lineup shortly if he can swing at full effort Monday or Tuesday, but there are certainly no guarantees that will happen. Morse has yet to play this month due to a strained left oblique. Rotoworld.com

  • Chase Headley won't return until Monday
    Chase Headley (face) won't return until at least Monday.

    Advice: Headley managed to avoid fractures and a concussion after being hit on the face with a pitch Thursday, but the Yankees want him to go through drills for a couple days before clearing him to return to the lineup. He worked out Saturday and will take batting practice on Sunday before possibly returning to action on Monday in Tampa. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:40 am
  • Tyson Ross allows six runs in loss to D'Backs
    Tyson Ross surrendered six runs -- four earned -- in three innings Saturday in a loss to Arizona.

    Advice: It was one of the ugliest outings of the season for Ross, who entered the start with a 2.66 ERA and watched it rise to 2.81. The 27-year-old right-hander might be hitting a wall here in mid-September. He's thrown 195 2/3 innings this season after totaling 136 2/3 innings between the minors and majors in 2013. Ross will get the Phillies at home next time out. Rotoworld.com

  • Avila slugs go-ahead HR, Tigers stay in first
    Alex Avila slugged a go-ahead two-run homer in the Tigers' 5-4 defeat of the Indians on Saturday.

    Advice: Detroit was trailing 4-3 when Avila took Bryan Shaw deep in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was his only hit of the night, but it helped keep the Tigers at the top of the American League Central standings (by a half-game over the Royals). Avila is batting .222/.329/.371 with 11 home runs and 47 RBI in 117 games this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Raburn leaves the yard in loss to Tigers
    Ryan Raburn blasted his fourth home run of the season on Friday as the Indians dropped the opener of their three-game weekend series to the Tigers.

    Advice: Raburn victimized his former mates with a solo shot in the second inning to open the game's scoring. He also singled in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-3 and raising his season slash to a disappointing .200/.246/.297. Rotoworld.com

  • Dustin Ackley returns to Mariners' lineup
    Dustin Ackley is back in the Mariners' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Ackley missed the last week of action due to bone spurs in his left ankle. It's possible that he'll require surgery over the offseason, but for now he'll try to gut it out through the final few weeks. He's batting .251/.300/.399 with 11 homers and 60 RBI for the Mariners this season. Rotoworld.com

    Cubs manager Rick Renteria said Friday that Anthony Rizzo (back) is unlikely to play this weekend.

    Advice: Rizzo has progressed steadily this week in his recovery from a back injury, but he still needs a few more days. A return early next week would seem to be possible. The slugging first baseman hasn't played since August 26. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Davis can be on ALCS roster
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Major League Baseball would allow the Orioles to place Chris Davis on their ALCS roster while he's still suspended.

    Advice: He'll still have to sit out a few games, though, depending on how many the Orioles have played to that point (Davis can't play in the team's first eight playoff games). The O's would also have to play a man short if they choose to put Davis on the roster, so it's unclear whether they'd consider it or not. Rotoworld.com

  • Tests show no fractures for Chase Headley
    Tests have cleared Chase Headley of any fractures.

    Advice: He's not out of the woods yet, as he still needs to see a neurologist to check for a concussion, but this is one positive development after Headley was hit in the face by a pitch Thursday. He received a couple stitches as a result of the incident. Headley did not travel with the Yankees to Baltimore but could rejoin them there at some point this weekend if he's cleared of a possible concussion. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Davis suspended 25 games for PEDs
    Chris Davis has been suspended 25 games by Major League Baseball after testing positive for amphetamines.

    Advice: Oh boy. Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun first reported the suspension and now Major League Baseball has made it official. Davis said in a statement that the positive test was for Adderall, which he had an exemption for in past but not this year. The suspension includes the postseason, so Davis will be ineligible for the final 17 games of the regular season, as well as eight potential playoff games (or more regular season games next season if the Orioles are out of the playoffs by then). "Crush" has had a down year for the O's, batting just .196/.300/.404, but he's hit 26 homers and driven in 72 and his loss is obviously a major one for Baltimore. Rotoworld.com

    Chase Headley will stay back in New York to undergo X-rays on his jaw rather than travel with the team to Baltimore.

    Advice: Headley left Thursday's game in the ninth inning after being hit in the face by a pitch. Obviously more will be known once the X-ray results come back, but expect him to miss at least Friday's game. Rotoworld.com

  • Headley leaves game after getting hit in face
    Chase Headley left Thursday's game against the Rays after being hit in the mouth by a pitch.

    Advice: It was a 98 mph fastball from Jake McGee. Headley had some blood on his chin and eventually walked off with the assist from trainers. The Yankees will surely send him for some tests before an update comes later Thursday. Rotoworld.com

  • Bochy hopes to have Belt back in 7-10 days
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Thursday that he's hoping Brandon Belt (concussion) will be ready for game action in 7-10 days.

    Advice: He might be limited to pinch-hitting duty initially, but it's possible he could be ready to start. Belt was cleared for full baseball activities on Thursday and could take live batting practice as early as Friday. He has been limited to just five games since the beginning of August due to post-concussion issues. Rotoworld.com

    Michael Morse (oblique) is not expected to play this weekend.

    Advice: He's still swinging the bat at only 50 percent. Morse is only 10 days removed from straining his oblique, so his continued absence isn't a surprise even though the Giants had expressed optimism that he could be back by now.

    Will Venable was diagnosed with a back strain.

    Advice: Venable left Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers after five innings and Padres manager Bud Black told reporters after the game that he will "probably be out a couple days." Venable has been a major disappointment this season, batting just .222/.287/.318 with six home runs and nine stolen bases in 132 games. He had 22 homers and 22 steals in 2013. Rotoworld.com

  • Worley labors through five, but gets 7th win
    Vance Worley labored through five innings, allowing three runs, but went home with his seventh win as the Pirates topped the Phillies on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Phillies made their former hurler work, forcing him to toss 92 pitches in his five frames. The right-hander, however, yielded only four hits and two walks while striking out four. After getting off to a hot start upon his 2014 debut in mid-June, Worley has been pedestrian since August 13, posting a 4.81 ERA over his last six starts. On the season, he has a 3.18 ERA with a 1.26 WHIP and a 70/22 K/BB ratio. He'll have to take on the Red Sox at home on Tuesday when he toes the slab next. Rotoworld.com

  • Cabrera unlikely to rejoin Pads this weekend
    Everth Cabrera is unlikely to rejoin the Padres this weekend.

    Advice: "Let's see how this whole process plays out, even how his hamstring is," Padres manager Bud Black said. "I still think there's some information-gathering with MLB and authorities that I'm not privy to. Organizationally, we're gonna wait for all this to get settled and cleared. Then if this all plays out positively, he can get active." Cabrera was reportedly arrested for a DUI last week, likely what Black is alluding to. He's also been dealing with a hamstring strain. It sounds like a suspension of some sort may be coming down the pipe. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Belt will be examined by Dr. Micky Collins in Pittsburgh.

    Stephen Strasburg allowed three runs on seven hits over six innings in Wednesday's loss to the Braves.

    Advice: Strasburg also struck out eight without walking a batter, but the seven hits allowed were enough to do him in. One of those was a B.J. Upton solo home run, and the other Upton, Justin, delivered an RBI single as well. The loss was his first since August 8 and dropped him to 11-11.

    Advice: If not by the weekend, Rizzo thinks he'll "for sure" be ready to play during the Cubs' homestand that begins next Monday.

  • Alex Avila expected to return on Sunday
    Alex Avila (head) is expected to return to the Tigers starting lineup on Sunday.

  • Strasburg tosses six innings of one-run ball
    Stephen Strasburg allowed one run over six innings in pitching to a no-decision on Friday.

    Advice: It wasn't Strasburg's most dominant outing ever (just six innings pitched) and he was long gone before a decision was rendered. The Phillies ultimately came away with a 9-8 win. Strasburg gave up just four hits while striking out five in his time on the mound. He also did not walk a batter. The 26-year old has a 3.43 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP. He's struck out 210 in 183 innings while pitching to an 11-10 record. While these numbers are not bad by any metric, we're still waiting for Strasburg to put together that one WOW season befitting of his arm and talent. Rotoworld.com

  • Freeman smashes 18th homer in loss to Marlins
    Freddie Freeman smashed his 18th home run of the season on Friday, but it wasn't enough to overcome the Marlins in Miami.

    Advice: Freeman's solo shot came off opposing starter Jarred Cosart and got the Braves on the board in the seventh inning. The 24-year-old slugger is having another strong season in the middle of the Braves lineup, slashing .288/.387/.476 with 18 long balls and 70 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Vance Worley fans six Cubs in no-decision
    Vance Worley racked up six strikeouts on Friday, but had to settle for a no-decision against the Cubs after allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits over his 4 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Worley struggled with his command, issuing four walks on the afternoon. The Cubs struck for a pair of runs in the third inning, then tacked on a run in the fifth on an RBI single by Chris Valaika. Worley will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Red Sox at home on Thursday. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Morse gets cortisone shot
    Michael Morse returned to San Francisco on Friday to get a cortisone shot for his strained left oblique.

    Advice: The Giants are hopeful of having Morse back in the lineup on Tuesday, but obliques are notoriously tricky. The Giants have Travis Ishikawa at first base and Gregor Blanco in left field tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Everth Cabrera arrested for DUI
    TMZ is reporting that Everth Cabrera was arrested in San Diego early Wednesday morning on DUI charges.

    Advice: Marijuana, not alcohol, was the culprit here, according to the report. Either way, it's another black mark on Cabrera's career, already marred by domestic violence charges in 2012 (later dropped) and a Biogenesis-related 50-game suspension last year. He's been terrible on the field this year, too, so it seems pretty unlikely that he'll be back with the Padres in 2015. Right now, he's on the DL with a strained hamstring and iffy to return this season. Rotoworld.com
