  • Scott Van Slyke to undergo wrist surgery
    Scott Van Slyke is set to undergo season-ending surgery on his right wrist.

    Advice: He sustained the injury in May and there had been hope that he could rehab and return before the end of the season, but they'll opt for surgery instead. He should be fully recovered and ready to go for spring training. Rotoworld.com 38 minutes ago

  • Joe Mauer (quad) returns to Twins lineup
    Joe Mauer (quad) returned to the Twins starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Mauer missed the past three games due to a strained quad. He's back in his customary second spot in the Twins lineup and starting at first base against Marcus Stroman and the Blue Jays on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:47 am

  • Mariners option Nori Aoki to Triple-A Tacoma
    Mariners optioned OF Nori Aoki to Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Aoki has been a part-timer since returning to the M's and with the bullpen taxed in recent days, they simply needed to add a couple of relievers. Aoki should be back with the big league club once rosters expand for September. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:50 am
  • Blue Jays designate Aaron Loup for assignment
    Blue Jays designated LHP Aaron Loup for assignment.

    Advice: Loup owns a troublesome 7.45 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 11/2 K/BB ratio over 9 2/3 innings with the Jays this season. He's likely to pass through waivers and continue to function as bullpen depth for the Jays. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:40 am

  • LeMahieu returns to Rockies lineup Saturday
    D.J. LeMahieu has returned to the Rockies starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: LeMahieu has been sidelined since Monday due to inflammation in his left wrist. The 28-year-old is having an outstanding season at the plate, slashing .344/.416/.501 with 10 homers, 50 RBI and nine stolen bases. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:35 am
  • Jorge Soler goes 0-for-4
    Jorge Soler went 0-for-4 before being lifted from Friday's game against the Dodgers.

    Advice: He also had a really ugly play in left field in which a ball that should have been caught bounced in front of him and then by him. It didn't hurt the Cubs, though, since it came with two outs and no one on and the next batter was retired. Still, Soler's glove is a problem and he's cooled off some of late after his fast start in his return from the DL. He might be a bit player down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:01 pm
  • Rickie Weeks homers, triples in win
    Rickie Weeks homered and tripled Friday as the Diamondbacks edged the Reds 4-3 in 11 innings.

    Advice: The winning run scored on a wild pitch in the bottom of the 11th. Weeks collected his ninth homer and his first triple since 2014, when he was still with the Brewers. Someone should pick him up before the deadline next week; he can be of use off the bench against left-handed pitchers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:46 pm
  • Angel Pagan hits ninth homer
    Angel Pagan hit his ninth homer Friday against the Braves.

    Advice: It's the second-highest homer total of his career; he hit 11 in 2010. On the heels of a horrid 2015, Pagan has been a fine regular for the Giants this year. He's batting .296/.350/.440 in 365 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:32 pm
  • Adonis Garcia goes 0-for-4 in loss
    Adonis Garcia went 0-for-4 and committed his 17th error of the year Friday in the loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Garcia hasn't been a disaster, what with his .263 average and .705 OPS, but he's not a reliable defender at third base and he's probably never going to have the bat to make up for it; he is 31, after all. One would think the Braves would give Rio Ruiz a look in his place next month. It might not be an upgrade, but there's nothing to lose. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:28 pm
  • Colome gives up back-to-back HRs vs. Astros
    Alex Colome gave up back-to-back homers to blow a save and take the loss Friday against the Astros.

    Advice: It was a night to forget for Colome. The Rays pulled ahead in the top of the ninth inning when Mikie Mahtook slugged a solo homer off Ken Giles, but Colome failed to retire a batter in the bottom of the frame. He gave up a leadoff homer to Carlos Correa to tie things up before Evan Gattis followed that up with a long walk-off homer. This was just Colome’s second blown save in 30 chances this season. He hadn’t allowed a run since July 23, so his job is secure. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:08 pm
  • Smyly goes six innings in no-decision
    Drew Smyly yielded three runs (two earned) over six innings Friday in a no-decision against the Astros.

    Advice: Smyly gave up a two-spot in the first inning before Jake Marisnick took him deep in the second inning. He fanned eight and walked a pair in the no-decision and has now gone at least six innings in seven consecutive starts. The southpaw has posted a disappointing 4.80 ERA this season, but he has been pretty solid during the second half. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:07 pm
  • Dickerson has three doubles vs. Astros
    Corey Dickerson went 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored Friday versus the Astros.

    Advice: All three hits were doubles. The third one tied the game in the seventh inning. Dickerson had a solid July, but it has mostly been a rough first season with the Rays. While he has 17 homers, he’s batting just .232 with a .283 on-base percentage. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:06 pm
  • Phelps struggles Friday against Padres
    David Phelps was chased after giving up four runs (three earned) in 3 2/3 innings Friday against the Padres.

    Advice: After turning in four straight promising starts since his return to the rotation, Phelps delivered a dud on Friday. He actually held the Padres hitless (with two walks) over the first three innings before things fell apart for him in a 24-pitch fourth inning. It was a disappointing performance for the 29-year-old considering the promising matchup, but he has the Mets and Phillies coming up next. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:20 pm
  • Cosart goes five innings in no-decision
    Jarred Cosart allowed two runs (one earned) in five innings in a no-decision against the Marlins on Friday.

    Advice: Facing his former team, Cosart gave up five hits and walked a pair while striking out three. He left the game in position for the victory, but the bullpen coughed up the lead in the eighth and the Marlins went on to win the game in the ninth. Cosart has allowed one earned run or fewer in three straight starts, but he’s still in search for his first win this season. Maybe next time. He lines up for a start against the Dodgers next week. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:19 pm
  • Ozuna drives in two in win over Padres
    Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-5 with two RBI in Friday’s victory over the Padres.

    Advice: Ozuna got the Marlins on the board in the first inning with an RBI double and later added an RBI single in the seventh inning, which jumpstarted the team’s comeback effort. This was just Ozuna’s second multi-hit game in his last 25 games. It has been a rough month for the 25-year-old, but he has the ability to finish strong. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:19 pm
  • Joe Mauer (quad) out again on Friday
    Joe Mauer (quad) remained out of the Twins' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He'll sit out a third straight game with a quad problem, but the Twins are optimistic Mauer will be ready to go Saturday. Trevor Plouffe has slid over to first base and Eduardo Escobar is at third. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:08 pm

  • LeMahieu (wrist) out of lineup again Friday
    DJ LeMahieu (wrist) remained out of the Rockies' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He hasn't played since Monday because of inflammation in his left wrist. The good news is LeMahieu is available off the bench and should be back in the lineup Saturday. Daniel Descalso is at second base in his place. The Rockies also have Ryan Raburn over David Dahl in left field with the Nationals starting southpaw Gio Gonzalez. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:30 pm
  • Van Slyke (wrist) transferred to 60-day DL
    Dodgers transferred OF Scott Van Slyke to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: That opens up a spot for Shawn Zarraga on the 40-man roster. With less than two months to go, this move effectively ends Van Slyke's season. He was hitting .225 before a right wrist injury sent him to the disabled list in early May. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:36 pm

  • Molitor: Joe Mauer again having quad issues
    Twins manager Paul Molitor confirmed Thursday that Joe Mauer is again having quad issues.

    Advice: It's the reason Mauer was out of the lineup Wednesday and will sit again Thursday. He injured the quad last week while running the bases in Atlanta and could need a couple more games off, though Molitor said he's not ruling Mauer out for Friday night's series opener on the road against the Blue Jays. Trevor Plouffe is playing first base on Thursday versus the Tigers with Eduardo Escobar at third. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:22 am

  • Mauer absent from Twins' lineup again Thurs.
    Joe Mauer is out of the Twins' starting lineup Thursday afternoon against the Tigers.

    Advice: Mauer didn't play Wednesday either and could be dealing with another flareup of quad soreness. Trevor Plouffe is at first base and Eduardo Escobar is at third. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:28 am

  • Soler (leg) returns with a 2-for-3 on Wed.
    Jorge Soler (leg) went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI in his return to action Wednesday.

    Advice: Soler was out a handful of days after fouling a ball off his leg over the weekend. The double was his seventh of the season. He's slashing .246/.328/.440 in 65 games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:43 am
  • Aoki doubles for lone M's extra-base hit
    Nori Aoki went 2-for-4 with a double in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Aoki's double was the Mariners' only extra-base hit against Masahiro Tanaka and company. The two-bagger was his 17th of the season. He has been on something of a doubles tear of late, swatting five in his last 10 games. The veteran outfielder shouldn't be relied upon for fantasy purposes, but his recent bat-work is nice enough in its own right. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:55 pm
  • Ozuna (family emergency) in lineup on Wed.
    Marcell Ozuna is in the Marlins' starting lineup on Wednesday night against the Royals.

    Advice: Ozuna made an early exit from Tuesday's game because of a private family emergency. He is starting in center field and batting cleanup Wednesday at home versus Kansas City right-hander Dillon Gee. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:13 pm
  • DJ LeMahieu (wrist) sitting again Wednesday
    DJ LeMahieu (wrist) is out of the Rockies' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Brewers.

    Advice: LeMahieu was a late scratch Tuesday due to left wrist inflammation and is apparently still dealing with some discomfort. Daniel Descalso will start at second base and bat sixth on Wednesday afternoon against Zach Davies. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:26 am
  • Ozuna leaves game due to family emergency
    Marcell Ozuna made an early exit from Tuesday's game against the Royals due to a family emergency.

    Advice: Ozuna was 1-for-3 before getting taken out of the lineup in the eighth inning. There aren't any details available yet. Robert Andino entered the game to play left field with Christian Yelich shifting over to center. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:32 pm
  • Pagan (groin) back in Giants lineup Tuesday
    Angel Pagan (groin) is back in the Giants' starting lineup Tuesday versus the Dodgers.

    Advice: Pagan tweaked his groin while making a catch in the outfield Saturday against the Mets, but he escaped a serious injury. He'll start in left field and bat second on Tuesday night against righty Kenta Maeda. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:10 pm
  • LeMahieu scratched due to wrist inflammation
    DJ LeMahieu was scratched from the Rockies' lineup Tuesday due to left wrist inflammation.

    Advice: Daniel Descalso will start at second base and bat sixth Tuesday versus Brewers right-hander Chase Anderson. This could be a multi-game absence for LeMahieu. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:09 pm
  • Weeks (ankle) has pinch-hit single Monday
    Rickie Weeks (ankle) had a pinch-hit single Monday against the Braves.

    Advice: Weeks left Saturday's game with a mild right ankle sprain, but it's not a major concern. The 33-year-old has been useful in part-time duty this season, batting .252 with eight homers and a .796 OPS over 92 games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:26 am
  • Smyly picks up win despite allowing four runs
    Drew Smyly improved to 6-11 in Sunday's win over the Rangers, surrendering four runs on five hits over 6 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Smyly was victimized by a pair of home runs in this one, with Delino DeShields notching a two-run shot in the first inning and Drew Stubbs smacking a solo shot in the fifth. The 27-year-old southpaw finished the afternoon with seven strikeouts against one walk. Sunday's outing wasn't a disaster by any means and Smyly has pitched well of late, entering his showdown with the Rangers holding a 2.25 WHIP and 0.94 WHIP over his last five starts. A road date with the Astros shows next on his schedule. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:39 pm
  • Jorge Soler scratched with sore leg
    Jorge Soler was scratched from Sunday's lineup with a sore leg.

    Advice: Soler fouled a ball off his leg during Saturday's game and is apparently still sore. Consider him day-to-day. Matt Szczur has assumed his spot in the lineup. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:46 am
  • Aaron Loup recalled from Triple-A
    Blue Jays recalled LHP Aaron Loup from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Loup has posted a 6.00 ERA over 10 appearances this season. He'll be used in middle relief. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:50 am

  • Rickie Weeks leaves with right ankle sprain
    Rickie Weeks left Saturday's game against the Padres with a mild right ankle sprain.

    Advice: Weeks was 0-for-3 when he left in the eighth inning. Michael Bourn entered the game in his place with Mitch Hanigar shifting from center field to left. Until we know more, consider Weeks day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:53 pm
  • Phelps fans nine Bucs over six scoreless
    David Phelps struck out nine over six scoreless innings in a 3-1 Marlins victory over the Pirates on Saturday.

    Advice: Phelps yielded just two hits while walking two in the contest, leaving the Pirates offense without an answer for most of the evening. The right-hander has now allowed just three runs in four starts since moving to the rotation in the beginning of August, lowering his season ERA to 2.28. Phelps has always been a slightly intriguing pitcher for his strikeout ability, and he can't be overlooked in deeper mixed leagues given recent results. Phelps will next take on the Padres on Friday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:14 pm
  • Angel Pagan (groin) could be back Tuesday
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy is hopeful Angel Pagan (groin) will return to the lineup on Tuesday.

    Advice: That means Pagan won't be in the lineup on Sunday. Pagan tweaked his groin while hauling in a line drive in the third inning Saturday against the Mets. Gregor Blanco replaced him in left field and will likely get the start there on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:34 pm
  • Angel Pagan exits with right groin tightness
    Angel Pagan left Saturday's game against the Mets with right groin tightness.

    Advice: He went 1-for-2 with a single before exiting. Gregor Blanco took over for Pagan in left field at the start of the fourth inning. Until the Giants provide an update, we'll consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:28 pm
  • Rickie Weeks hits two homers
    Rickie Weeks homered twice and knocked in five runs Wednesday against the Mets.

    Advice: Weeks has been a bit player most of the year, but he's getting starts against lefties now and capitalizing. He's batting .247 with eight homers, five of which have come against southpaws. Maybe a contender will want to add him to its bench before the end of the month. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:12 pm
  • Jorge Soler hits three-run homer
    Jorge Soler went 2-for-4 and hit a three-run homer against the Brewers on Wednesday.

    Advice: If not for Chris Coghlan's injury, Soler probably would have been on the bench for this one. However, he's been killing the ball since returning from the disabled list 12 days ago, and now that Coghlan is down, he's due more playing time against righties. It's time to pick him back up in mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:27 pm
  • Ozuna cranks 21st homer on Wednesday
    Marcell Ozuna lifted a solo homer as part of a 1-for-4 evening on Wednesday against the Reds.

    Advice: The outfielder is having a nice bounce-back season after a dreary 2015 that saw him get demoted to Triple-A for a while. He is now batting .281/.337/.493 with 21 longballs, 62 RBI and 62 runs scored. He is on pace to set career highs in all of those stats. The Marlins were rumored to be dangling Ozuna in trade talks over the winter but they were smart to hang on to him. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:02 pm
  • Mauer dealing with minor quad issue
    Twins manager Paul Molitor said that Joe Mauer was scratched from Wednesday's lineup against the Braves due to a sore quad.

    Advice: Mauer's quad soreness is just thought to be minor, though, to the point where Molitor believes the long-time face of the Twins could be back in the lineup for Thursday's road date with the Royals. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:44 pm

  • LeMahieu scores three times as Rox best Nats
    DJ LeMahieu went 3-for-3 with a triple, a two-run home run and three runs scored as the Rockies topped the Nationals 6-2 on Tuesday.

    Advice: No one this side of the equator (sorry, that disqualifies you, Michael Phelps) is as hot as LeMahieu these days. The 28-year-old is now hitting .548 (17-for-31) with two home runs, five RBI and eight runs scored during an eight-game hitting streak, running his overall line to .342/.415/.498. LeMahieu is also fourth in the National League with 79 runs scored. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:05 pm
  • Aoki collects three hits in loss to Angels
    Nori Aoki went 3-for-4 with a double in Tuesday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Aoki has now picked up a pair of three-hit efforts over his last three games. His double on Tuesday was No. 13 for the season. In addition, the veteran outfielder is slashing .259/.328/.334 with 14 RBI, 44 runs scored and six steals over 320 at-bats. There is no fantasy intrigue here. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:34 pm
