  • Prado has appendectomy, likely done for year
    Martin Prado is likely done for the season after undergoing an emergency appendectomy.

    Advice: Prado, who was already playing through a hamstring injury, simply doesn't have enough time to make it back before the end of the year. The 31-year-old played well after coming over to the Yankees at the deadline and remains under contract for the next two seasons. Rotoworld.com

  • Morse (oblique) should be ready by Friday
    Michael Morse (oblique) should be ready to return by Friday.

    Advice: Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that Morse was "tentative" during batting practice Monday, so it will likely take him another couple of days to swing with full intensity. The 32-year-old has been sidelined since late August with a strained left oblique. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 5:54 am
  • Pagan (back) likely to play Tuesday
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy placed a "pretty good percentage" that Angel Pagan (back) will be in the starting lineup on Tuesday.

    Advice: Pagan was scratched from Monday's lineup with recurring lower back discomfort. His most recent stiffness dates back to Saturday, but the Giants are optimistic it won't keep him sidelined for long. Rotoworld.com

  • Chad Qualls returned to action on Monday September 15. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 1:30 am
  • Venable (back) returns to Padres' lineup
    Will Venable (back) went 0-for-1 with a walk and two strikeouts Monday in his return to action against the Phillies.

    Advice: Venable hadn't started a game since last Wednesday due to a back strain. The 31-year-old owns a disappointing .221/.290/.317 batting line over 134 games this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Trout goes 1-for-2 with three walks and a run
    Mike Trout went 1-for-2 with three walks and a run scored in Monday's win over the Mariners.

    Advice: Trout is now 4-for-23 (.174) off the Mariners' Hisashi Iwakuma. That's his worst batting average against any pitcher Trout has ever had 15 or more at-bats against. Fortunately, he's really, really good against everybody else. Trout is slashing .291/.381/.567 and is on pace for 37 homers, 116 RBI, 117 runs and 15 steals. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:10 pm
  • Iwakuma yields 7 runs in loss to the Angels
    Hisashi Iwakuma was knocked around by the Angels on Monday, allowing seven runs on six hits across 3 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Iwakuma struck out four, walked two and gave up a homer. Seattle dug itself into an 8-0 hole before getting on the board in the eighth inning. The Japanese right-hander, who came into this outing 5-0 with a 1.75 ERA in seven career outings against the Angels, picked the wrong time to fall apart, allowing the Angels to improve to 94-56. Iwakuma (14-8, 3.42 ERA) is scheduled to take on the Astros in Houston on Saturday. Rotoworld.com

  • Trumbo blasts a salami, knocks in five runs
    Mark Trumbo hit a grand slam to lead the Diamondbacks past the Giants 6-2 on Monday.

    Advice: He finished 2-for-5 with five RBI, adding an RBI single in the seventh. The big damage came in the third frame, when Trumbo swatted a Ryan Vogelsong offering over the right field wall to plate Wade Miley, Chris Owings and A.J. Pollock. Trumbo has driven in 10 runs over his last five games. A hot finish would give a nice superficial boost to his disappointing slash line (.239/.303/.389). Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:46 pm
  • Posey drives in a run in loss to the Snakes
    Buster Posey went 1-for-4 with an RBI as the Giants fell to the Diamondbacks 6-2 on Monday.

    Advice: He has hit safely in six straight. Posey has knocked in 27 of his 86 RBI in his last 23 games. He's been particularly hot in the season's final month, going 22-for-49 (.449) with two homers and 14 RBI in September. The catcher typically feasts on Rattler pitchers, coming into this one hitting .375 with 17 RBI in his last 18 against Arizona. He's slashing .311/.362/.488 with 20 homers. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:45 pm
  • Vogelsong gives up 4 runs in loss to Snakes
    Ryan Vogelsong allowed four runs over 5 2/3 innings as the Giants dropped a 6-2 decision versus the Diamondbacks on Monday.

    Advice: Vogelsong didn't have his best stuff tonight, though that only manifested on the scoreboard on Mark Trumbo's grand slam. He walked four and allowed six hits. The right-hander came into tonight with a 1.38 ERA in his last two starts against the Diamondbacks, having received exactly zero runs of support in both games. San Francisco's offense couldn't get going tonight, either. Vogelsong (8-11, 3.98 ERA) will be in San Diego this weekend for a Sunday matinee against the Padres. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:42 pm
  • Cashner needs only 92 pitches in 2-hit CGSO
    Andrew Cashner spun a two-hit shutout on Monday in a 1-0 win versus the Phillies.

    Advice: Interestingly, his complete-game shutout came on the same night Anthony Rizzo, for whom he was once traded, hit a walk-off homer. Cashner struck out seven and walked one, needing only 92 pitches, otherwise known as a "Maddux," to finish off the Phillies. The 27-year-old right-hander remains hot, having gone 1-1 with a 2.25 ERA in his last five starts coming into tonight. Of his four wins, Cashner has needed to throw complete games to secure two of them. Now 4-7 with a 2.20 ERA, Cashner hosts the Giants on Saturday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:38 pm
  • Roberto Hernandez pulled in fourth
    Roberto Hernandez surrendered two runs in 3 2/3 innings before being removed from Monday's start against the Rockies.

    Advice: The Dodgers decided to give Hernandez one more try as a starter, but he certainly didn't do much with it. Perhaps he'll trade spots with Kevin Correia now. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:37 pm
  • Yasiel Puig reaches three times in win
    Yasiel Puig had another nice game in a rout Monday, going 2-for-5 with a double, a walk and two runs scored.

    Advice: Puig is 7-for-17 with two doubles and two walks the last four days. He still hasn't homered since July 31, but things seem to be getting better. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:36 pm
  • Wilin Rosario goes 3-for-4, homers
    Wilin Rosario went 3-for-4 and homered against the Dodgers on Monday.

    Advice: It's worth wondering what's in store for Rosario after his disappointing offensive season; despite all of his success in 2012 and 2013, the Rockies tried to sign Brian McCann last winter with the idea of moving Rosario out from behind the plate. There won't really be anywhere to move Rosario this winter, so he'll either remain a catcher or possibly get traded. It'd be a case of selling low for the Rockies, though. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:30 pm
  • Nori Aoki reaches five times in Royals' win
    Nori Aoki went 4-for-4 with a double and a walk to lead the Royals to a 4-3 win over the White Sox on Monday.

    Advice: Aoki doubled in a tie game in the bottom of the ninth, only to be replaced by a pinch-runner despite his plus speed. It ended up working out for the Royals, as the outrageously fast Terrence Gore scored from second on an infield single to win the game. Aoki is hitting .349 in 43 at-bats this month, though he's not doing much else to help fantasy owners at the moment. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:04 pm
  • Chad Qualls picks up save in return
    Chad Qualls notched a save Monday in his first appearance since Sept. 6, pitching a scoreless ninth in the Astros' 3-1 win over the Indians.

    Advice: The Astros went right back to Qualls in the closer's role tonight, and he retired three of the four batters he faced in his return from a hip problem. Since he needed just 10 pitches, he could get the call again in a save chance on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:41 pm
  • Angel Pagan scratched due to back stiffness
    Angel Pagan was scratched from Monday's lineup due to back stiffness.

    Advice: Pagan has had back issues dating back to mid-June and missed a game earlier this month when it flared up on him. It remains to be seen if the flare-up this time will cost him more than a game. Juan Perez took his spot in center field and at the top of the lineup. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:00 pm
  • Morse (oblique) still a day or two away
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that Michael Morse (oblique) was "tentative" while taking batting practice Monday.

    Advice: He did add that Morse started to loosen up as the session went along, but the outfielder is still at least another day or two away from returning. He's been out since late August due to a strained left oblique. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:51 pm
  • Qualls (hip) available to pitch Monday
    Chad Qualls (hip) is available to pitch Monday.

    Advice: Qualls hasn't pitched since September 6 due to an issue with his right hip. It's unlikely that the Astros will trust him with save chances right away, so hang on to Josh Fields and Tony Sipp in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:21 pm
  • 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
    Yesterday, 5:49 am
  • Will Venable returned to action on Sunday September 14. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:13 am
  • 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
    Sunday, 8:15 am
  • Chad Qualls (hip) reports improvement
    Chad Qualls (hip) said Saturday that he's feeling better.

    Advice: Qualls is dealing with an issue in his right hip that he thinks might be nerve-related. He's not sure when (or if) he'll be cleared to return to action, but it does appear a bit of progress is being made. The Astros have used Josh Fields and Tony Sipp in the ninth inning with Qualls out. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 7:41 am
  • Mike Trout homers twice in Angels' win
    Mike Trout went 3-for-3 with two solo homers and an intentional walk Saturday in the Angels' 5-2 defeat of the Astros.

    Advice: Trout collected his 33rd and 34th homers and his 39th double. Really, if there was any question left, he might have just locked up AL MVP honors tonight. Trout leads the league with 107 runs scored and 107 RBI, he's moved into a tie for third in homers and he's third behind Jose Abreu and Victor Martinez in OPS, while obviously having greater defensive value than those two. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:25 pm
  • Yasiel Puig goes 3-for-5 in rout
    Yasiel Puig had three hits and three runs scored in Saturday's drubbing of the Giants.

    Advice: Sure, everyone had a nice game for the Dodgers tonight, but it's still an important step forward for Puig, who was in a 10-for-73 slump since his last three-hit game on Aug. 15. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:36 pm
  • Trumbo goes 3-for-5, drives in three vs. Pads
    Mark Trumbo finished 3-for-5 with three RBI as the Diamondbacks beat the Padres 10-4 on Saturday.

    Advice: Trumbo smacked a two-run single in the first inning and later scored on a wild pitch. He then plated Chris Owings on a fielder's choice in the second and doubled in the fifth before singling and scoring again in the eighth. Trumbo seems to be finding a groove now after struggling initially in his return from a fractured foot. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:38 pm
  • Will Venable (back) remains out of the lineup
    Will Venable (back) remains out of the Padres' lineup Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Venable has been sidelined with a back strain since Wednesday. He holds a poor batting line of .222/.287/.318 with six home runs and 27 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 2:20 pm
  • Mike Trout doubles, triples in win
    Mike Trout doubled, tripled and drove in two runs as the Angels topped the Astros 11-3 on Friday.

    Advice: Trout also scored twice, giving him 104 runs and 105 RBI through 143 games. He leads the AL in both categories. The win was the Angels' ninth straight, giving them an 11-game lead in the AL West. Their magic number is just seven with 16 games to go. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:29 pm
  • Chad Qualls could have nerve issue in hip
    Chad Qualls is dealing with an issue in his right hip that he thinks might be nerve-related.

    Advice: The ailment was originally described as a glute problem, but it appears it's more in his hip. "I don't know if it's just tight hip or something like that that's putting pressure on kind of a nerve back there, get like just a warm feeling - just in like a six-inch feeling just down kind of the side of my leg. When I sit down or laid down it wouldn't hurt, and then if I walk around it gets irritated." Qualls is receiving treatment and is being considered day-to-day, but there's no guarantee that he makes it back this season. Josh Fields and Tony Sipp have picked up saves for the Astros over the last week and both need to be owned in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Martin Prado returned to action on Thursday September 11. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 2:55 am
  • Prado homers as Yankees come back late to win
    Martin Prado's pinch-hit eighth-inning two-run home run helped the Yankees come from behind late to defeat the Rays on Thursday.

    Advice: After Rays starter Alex Cobb lost his no-hit bid with one out in the eighth inning, Prado came off of the bench to hit for Brendan Ryan and manager Joe Girardi's decision paid off. Prado lifted a Brad Boxberger offering to left field, halving the Rays' lead to 4-2. It's already the sixth home run he has hit since joining the Yankees at the trade deadline, surpassing his four-month total with the D'Backs. Along with his 11 home runs, Prado has knocked in 57 runs and is slashing .278/.319/.407 overall. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 7:33 pm
  • Morse (oblique) likely out this weekend
    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. He's hit .280/.338/.477 with 16 homers and 61 RBI over 130 games this season. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 4:39 pm
  • Buster Posey propels Giants to win
    Buster Posey went 3-for-5 with an RBI as the Giants beat the Diamondbacks 6-2 on Thursday.

    Advice: It would have been a four-hit day if not for a nice play in the eighth. Even so, Posey is hitting .472 in 36 at-bats this month and .371 with eight homers and 28 RBI in 143 at-bats since the beginning of August. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 4:26 pm
  • Prado (hamstring) out again Thursday
    Martin Prado (hamstring) is out of the Yankees' lineup again Thursday.

    Advice: Prado will now miss his third straight start due to a lingering left hamstring issue. It's unclear when he'll be ready to return. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 1:19 pm
  • Pagan batting .375 over his last 11 contests
    Angel Pagan went 1-for-3 and drove home a run in Wednesday night's 5-0 win against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Pagan is 20-for-41 in his last 10 games against the Diamondbacks. He's been snacking on more than Arizona pitching recently. Pagan is 18-for-48 (.375) with five RBI, nine runs and two stolen bases in his last 11 games. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:49 pm
  • Vogelsong shuts out Snakes for 6 2/3 frames
    Ryan Vogelsong worked 6 2/3 shutout innings, allowing two hits, in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

    Advice: Vogelsong wasn't perfect, of course, striking out only two and walking five. He was yanked before reaching seven innings after cracking 100 pitches. Vogelsong appeared to turn the corner last month, going 3-1 with a 2.58 ERA in six starts, but was then eviscerated for a career-high eight runs (on four homers) over five innings at Colorado in his first start of September. Hopefully that start was a one-outing aberration. Vogelsong has a rematch against the Diamondbacks next week. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:44 pm
  • Will Venable diagnosed with back strain
    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
    Wednesday, 10:34 pm
  • Iwakuma yields 4 runs in loss to the Astros
    Hisashi Iwakuma worked just 4 1/3 innings on Wednesday, allowing four runs on six hits in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Iwakuma did strike out six batters, but a two-out three-run Astros' rally in the second inning did him in. He's been in a real funk recently, logging a 7.24 ERA across his last three starts before tonight, though he did enter tonight 4-0 with a 2.31 ERA over his last five outings against division rivals, and 5-1 in his last six home appearances. Iwakuma (14-7, 3.11 ERA) better get it together, because he has a big start on deck with a date against the Angels scheduled for Tuesday. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:22 pm
  • Venable leaves game with undisclosed injury
    Will Venable left Wednesday's game against the Dodgers with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: It's unclear what happened to the outfielder, but Cameron Maybin replaced him in center field to start the bottom of the fifth inning. The Padres should give an update on his status shortly. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:40 pm
  • Puig batting leadoff for Dodgers Wednesday
    Yasiel Puig is batting leadoff for the Dodgers on Wednesday night against the Padres.

    Advice: Puig is an extended slump and hit seventh on Tuesday night, but manager Don Mattingly has decided to give him the bump in the hope that it provides a spark. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 2:53 pm
  • Martin Prado (hamstring) out again Wed.
    Martin Prado (hamstring) remained out of the Yankees' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Prado is nursing a lingering left hamstring issue and could miss a few more days. He's batting .298/.322/.509 with five homers over 31 games since joining the Yankees. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 12:40 pm
  • Cashner gives up 2 runs in win against LAD
    Andrew Cashner surrendered two earned runs in seven innings Tuesday in a 6-3 win against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Cashner mostly danced around nine hits, but he did make a big mistake in serving up Adrian Gonzalez's two-homer in the sixth inning; before tonight, he'd never given up a homer to Los Angeles (46 innings). He struck out two and walked one. The win snapped his winless streak at 11 starts. Cashner kicks off a two-start week with an outing against the Phillies on Monday in Petco. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:30 pm
  • Chad Qualls dealing with glute injury
    Chad Qualls was unavailable to pitch Tuesday due to a right glute issue.

    Advice: It explains why Josh Fields was used in the ninth inning and converted his second straight save. Qualls is being listed as day-to-day, so it shouldn't be a long-term issue. Still, the veteran reliever has also struggled lately, so picking up Fields just in case might not be a bad idea. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:26 pm
  • Hernandez yields 2 ER over 3 frames to loss
    Roberto Hernandez coughed up five runs -- two earned -- over three innings Tuesday in a loss to the Padres.

    Advice: He gave up a career-high four home runs in his last outing -- last week against the Nationals -- and coughed up another tonight. The right-hander toted a 8.78 ERA across three career starts at Dodger Stadium to the mound this evening, and then pitched so poorly that Don Mattingly refused to send him out for the fourth inning. Hernandez (8-11, 4.04 ERA) punches the clock next week on Blake Street when he tangles with the Rockies in Denver. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:26 pm
  • Posey drives in a pair of runs in 5-1 victory
    Buster Posey finished 0-for-4 but still drove in a pair of runs in the Giants' 5-1 win against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

    Advice: He grounded into an RBI fielder's choice in the second inning, and lifted a sacrifice fly to left in the sixth to score Angel Pagan. Posey adores Arizona pitching. Even though he didn't hit safely tonight, he came into this game batting .390 with three homers and 14 RBI in his last 15 games versus the Snakes. It wasn't a surprise he scratched out an RBI against Wade Miley, against whom he entered 9-for-20 with a homer and three doubles lifetime. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:57 pm
  • Morse (oblique) out until this weekend
    Michael Morse (oblique) will be sidelined at least until this weekend.

    Advice: Morse received a cortisone shot for his strained left oblique last week but remains sore. The slugger has yet to play this month due to the ailment. He's sporting a .280/.338/.477 batting line with 16 homers and 61 RBI over 130 games this season. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 4:57 pm
  • Michael Morse (oblique) out again Tuesday
    Michael Morse (oblique) remained out of the Giants' lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: The club was hoping Morse would be ready Tuesday after missing a week of action, but obviously he's not. He remains day-to-day. Gregor Blanco is in left field again Tuesday in Morse's place. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 3:35 pm
  • Prado (hamstring) not in Tuesday's lineup
    Martin Prado is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Rays due to a lingering left hamstring injury.

    Advice: Prado injured his hamstring one week ago and has been playing at less than 100 percent since returning to the lineup. The Yankees are playing it safe with him for now. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 12:57 pm
  • Puig (stomach) goes 0-for-2 in return Sunday
    Yasiel Puig (stomach) finished 0-for-2 with a walk in his return to the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Puig was held out of action on Saturday with a minor stomach problem. An IV did the trick, but the struggling 23-year-old basically seems to be splitting time in center field at this point with Joc Pederson. It's all very poor timing for Puig's fantasy owners. He had a .959 OPS on August 3. That's now down to .861. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 8, 12:57 am
  • Angel Pagan plates lone run in loss to Tigers
    Angel Pagan went 1-for-5 and drove home the Giants lone run in Sunday night's loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Pagan has been an extremely valuable fantasy contributor this season when he's been able to stay in the Giants lineup, unfortunately those times have been limited. Through his 359 at-bats, he's slashing .298/.339/.387 with three homers, 26 RBI and 14 stolen bases. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 7, 9:05 pm
  • Hammel fans seven in no-decision vs. Astros
    Jason Hammel struck out seven while allowing two runs over 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Astros on Sunday.

    Advice: Hammel held the Astros scoreless until the seventh, when they plated both their runs against the right-hander. He gave up five hits and a walk on the day. It was another good start for Hammel after a rough beginning with the A's. He's now got a 4.70 ERA in the American League, and he'll look to improve on those numbers Friday at the Mariners. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 7, 6:51 pm
  • Trout hits 32nd home run in win over Twins
    Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in Sunday's win over the Twins.

    Advice: Trout hit a two-run homer in the third inning, his 32nd of the season. That's a career high, as are his 102 RBI. Trout is batting .285/.370/.552 with 97 runs scored on the year. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 7, 3:19 pm
  • Wilin Rosario activated from disabled list
    Rockies activated C Wilin Rosario from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Rosario missed the last two weeks of action with left wrist inflammation. Michael McKenry played well while Rosario was out, but Rosario should return to playing pretty much every day. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 7, 10:28 am
  • Prado doubles twice in Yankees' defeat of KC
    Martin Prado finished 3-for-4 in the Yankees' win over the Royals on Saturday in New York.

    Advice: Prado had been sidelined for much of this week with a mild left hamstring strain but showed no lingering discomfort on Saturday in the Bronx, tallying two doubles and a single. He has found new life since being traded away from the Diamondbacks, now batting .309 with an .860 OPS in 30 games for the Yankees. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 6, 4:05 pm
  • Chad Qualls blows sixth save of the season
    Chad Qualls blew his sixth save of the season Saturday in the Astros' loss to the A's.

    Advice: And it was his fifth blown save of the year against Oakland. Qualls was called on in the bottom of the ninth with runners at first and third and the Astros leading by two. He gave up a game-tying double to Josh Reddick and then Jed Lowrie hit a walkoff single. Yikes. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 6, 3:56 pm
  • Yasiel Puig out Saturday with stomach issues
    Yasiel Puig is out of the Dodgers' lineup with stomach problems on Saturday versus the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Puig is getting an IV. Joc Pederson will draw the start in center field on Saturday and could continue to see regular playing time down the stretch this season. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 6, 3:16 pm
  • Puig benched for Pederson again on Saturday
    Yasiel Puig is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup again on Saturday versus the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Joc Pederson is starting in center field over Puig and could continue to see regular playing time down the stretch. Pederson had a monstrous 2014 season at Triple-A and is the Dodgers' best defensive outfielder by far. He needs to be owned in all mixed fantasy leagues at this point. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 6, 2:41 pm
  • Buster Posey has three hits, homer in victory
    Buster Posey went 3-for-3 and belted his 20th home run of the season as the Giants defeated the Tigers 5-4 on Saturday afternoon in Detroit.

    Advice: Posey also drew a walk, reaching safely in each of his four plate appearances in the ballgame. His two-out single in the first inning started a four-run rally, and he tacked on the would-be winning run with a solo blast off David Price in the fifth inning. He's in the midst of another MVP-caliber season, slashing .310/.361/.494 with 20 long balls and 79 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 6, 1:25 pm
  • Norichika Aoki not in Royals lineup Saturday
    Norichika Aoki is not in the Royals starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: It looks to be a routine day off for the speedy outfielder. Carlos Peguero is starting in his place in right field and will hit seventh for the Royals. Rotoworld.com
