  • Phillies call up Freddy Galvis
    Phillies recalled infielder Freddy Galvis from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Galvis suffered the misfortune of fracturing his clavicle just three days after being sent down by the Phillies in May, and he missed a couple of months before returning in July. He hit .267/.322/.452 with three homers in 135 at-bats for Lehigh Valley. The Phillies will probably make him their top utilityman over Andres Blanco.

  • Phillies DFA infielder Reid Brignac
    Phillies designated infielder Reid Brignac for assignment.

    Advice: Brignac's glove isn't really good enough to carry his modest bat in a utility role. He hit .222/.300/.346 in 91 at-bats for the Phillies.

  • Manny Machado talks knee surgery
    Manny Machado said he opted for surgery on his right knee because the injury wasn't getting any better.

    Advice: Machado said he has abnormal knees, which would be a contributing factor to him injuring the same ligament in different knees in back-to-back years. He hopes to have the surgery to repair a partially torn ligament next week and be ready for spring training. It's no given that he'll be ready then, but this year's tear isn't as bad as the one in his other knee that caused him to miss the end of 2013 and the beginning of 2014.

  • Astros 3B prospect Moran with 2 hits, double
    Astros prospect third baseman Colin Moran went 2-for-4 with a double and a sacrifice fly for Double-A Corpus Christi on Friday.

    Advice: Moran has hit better in Double-A (.304/.359/.449) than he did in High-A (.294/.342/.393), which has made the Astros look quite smart. He was the sixth overall pick in the 2013 draft, and could make his major league debut as soon as mid-2015. Moran projects as a .300 hitter with 30-plus doubles, and his future role will be determined by his play and the play of fellow Astros third base prospect Rio Ruiz.

  • Middlebrooks (hammy) hitless in return
    Will Middlebrooks (hamstring) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout Friday against the Mariners in his return to the starting lineup.

    Advice: Middlebrooks missed back-to-back starts after leaving Tuesday's game with right hamstring tightness, but he came off the bench to play the final six innings on Thursday and felt well enough to start Friday. The 25-year-old is batting just .187/.270/.285 with two home runs over 37 games with the Red Sox this season.

  • Escobar with five hits in blowout win vs DET
    Eduardo Escobar homered, tripled and drove in two in Friday's tilt with the Tigers.

    Advice: The triple was Escobar's first of the season. He ended up one double shy of the cycle. In addition to that triple and his second inning home run off of Robbie Ray, Escobar collected two singles and scored three runs. The offensive outburst was certainly unexpected for Minnesota's number eight hitter. He's slashing .272/.315/.391 this season.

  • Plouffe doubles, drives in three in blowout
    Trevor Plouffe doubled and drove in three runs in the Twins 20-6 win over the Tigers.

    Advice: In addition to driving in three, Plouffe scored four runs thanks to the Twins' offensive outburst. For the season, he has nine home runs and 63 batted in. His overall slash line isn't particularly shiny, though, as he's hitting .242/.309/.396 this season.

  • Turner stays hot, haunts former team
    Justin Turner singled, doubled, walked, scored a run and stole a base in Friday's triumph at the Mets' expense.

    Advice: Heat Check on Aisle Justin Turner. Heat Check on Aisle Justin Turner. Currently riding a six-game hitting streak, the utility man set free by these same Mets over the winter is 9-for-19 (.474) with three doubles, a homer, two steals and five RBI in that span. Turner is slashing an impressive .318/.391/.448 and needs to be started in all NL-only leagues for as long as Juan Uribe is disabled. If you're a mixed league owner with gamble in you and you want to see how long Turner can keep punching above his weight class, knock yourself out.

  • Harrison drives in five in win over Brewers
    Josh Harrison went 3-for-5 with a home run and five RBI as the Pirates beat the Brewers 8-3 on Friday.

    Advice: Harrison broke out of a 7-for-38 slump with the three-hit game. He hit a two-run double in the second inning, had an RBI single in the fourth and hit a two-run homer in the eighth. Harrison had just one run driven in the entire month of August before the outburst. Even with the slump, Harrison is still batting .308/.344/.496 with 11 homers in his breakout year.

  • Gonzalez homers, scores twice in Astros win
    Marwin Gonzalez finished Friday's game 1-for-4 with a home run, an RBI and two runs scored.

    Advice: The fifth inning home run, a solo shot off of Indians starter Carlos Carrasco, was Gonzalez's sixth of the season. Gonzalez won't knock over the light stanchion, but he does have a bit of pop in his bat, which makes him an interesting bench shortstop in deeper AL-only leagues. For the year, Gonzalez is slashing .263/.309/.373 with six home runs and twenty RBI in 228 ABs.

  • Lawrie (oblique) still without timetable
    Brett Lawrie (oblique) still has no timetable for a return.

    Advice: "When he'll be back, I've got no idea," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. Lawrie isn't even with the team, as Gibbons said he's currently at his home in Arizona. While Gibbons said Lawrie is feeling better, he's still nowhere near a return. Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos previously said he doesn't expect Lawrie back before September.

  • Longoria homers, drives in three vs TOR
    Evan Longoria hit a solo home run and a two-run double against the Blue Jays on Friday.

    Advice: Longoria finished the game 3-for-4 and a triple shy of the cycle. This marked one of Longoria's better games of what has been a somewhat down year for the third baseman. He hit the home run, number twenty-one, in the second inning against Marcus Stroman. He went on to add a two-run double in the sixth inning. Longoria is slashing .250/.323/.386 on the season, with 21 home runs and 70 RBI.

  • Prado's third RBI gives Yankees walk-off win
    Martin Prado delivered a walk-off RBI single, his third RBI of the night, as the Yankees edged the White Sox 4-3 on Friday.

    Advice: Prado hit a two-run homer in the third inning, and with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the ninth he came through with a single off White Sox reliever Daniel Webb. Prado finished the night 2-for-5 with those three RBI. He's now hitting .242 with three home runs since joining the Yankees after hitting five through the season's first four months.

  • Bogaerts being evaluated for concussion
    Xander Bogaerts is being evaluated for a concussion after a HBP in the head on Friday.

    Advice: Bogaerts initially stayed in the game after being hit in the head by a Felix Hernandez pitch, but he left an inning later. The shortstop was 0-for-1 before leaving. The club should have more information on his injury and availability in the coming days.

  • Bogaerts exits after hit by pitch on helmet
    Xander Bogaerts was removed from Friday's game against the Mariners after being hit in the helmet by a pitch.

    Advice: Bogaerts was hit by a Felix Hernandez pitch in the fifth inning but stayed in until the sixth. Brock Holt pinch hit for him in the sixth inning. That he was able to stay in and play shortstop suggests he may have avoided a concussion, but the Red Sox should provide more information on his status after the game.

  • Zimmerman ready to 'ramp up' throwing program
    Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) will "ramp up" his throwing program in the next few days, Nationals manager Matt Williams said.

    Advice: Zimmerman threw Thursday for the first time since his injury, reporting no issues with the hamstring. "He's on his way," Williams said. "We've got to be mindful of his shoulder, too, but he'll continue." Zimmerman has yet to do anything related to the hamstring, so he's still nowhere close to a return. It's a coin flip as to whether he makes it back before the end of the regular season.

  • Report: Machado to have season-ending surgery
    A source tells Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports that Manny Machado is expected to have season-ending knee surgery within a week.

    Advice: Machado has been on the disabled list since August 12 with a sprained ligament in his right knee, and Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday that the third baseman had no timetable for resuming baseball activities. It's a huge loss for the first-place Orioles, who will now have to rely more heavily on Chris Davis and others to fill the position. Machado's season got off to a late start after left knee surgery last season, playing in just 82 games this year.

Showalter added that he should know more about Machado's status on Saturday. The star third baseman has been out since mid-August with a sprained right knee.

  • Turner's 2-run blast pushes Dodgers past Pads
    Justin Turner blasted a game-winning two-run homer off Tyson Ross in the eighth inning Thursday to push the Dodgers to a 2-1 victory over the Padres.

    Advice: Los Angeles couldn't get anything going against Ross all night, so it was quite the surprise when Turner blasted the round-tripper over the left field fence right after Carl Crawford reached on an infield single. Turner finished 2-for-3. The utility man has been a revelation whenever called upon in 2014, slashing an impressive .314/.386/.441 over 220 at-bats. As long as Juan Uribe is on the shelf, he'll play every day, making him a solid start in NL-only formats.

  • Matt Dominguez goes hitless in loss
    Matt Dominguez went 0-for-3 in Thursday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Dominguez, making outs like no one else in baseball right now, is batting .203 with just two walks in 123 at-bats since the All-Star break. He's hit for more power than expected as a major leaguer, but he's never been the defensive dynamo that he came advertised as while in the minors. It might actually be a good thing for him that the Astros acquired Colin Moran from the Marlins in the Jarrod Cosart deal; if they didn't have a third base prospect worth waiting on, the position would be an obvious place to try to upgrade at this winter. As is, they might as well give Dominguez another year and see what happens with Moran and Rio Ruiz.

  • Zimmerman (hamstring) makes light throws
    Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) did some light throwing on Thursday afternoon.

    Advice: It's a nice step in the right direction for the injured third baseman, but the real hurdles for his recovery are going to be baserunning, fielding, and hitting. Zimmerman has been on the disabled list since late July with a Grade 3 hamstring strain and is still probably 3-4 weeks away from returning to the Nats' active roster.

  • Cubs 3B prospect Kris Bryant hits 41st homer
    Cubs third base prospect Kris Bryant went 2-for-3 with a home run and a walk on Wednesday for Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: Bryant now leads the minor leagues with 41 home runs, putting up a .336/.444/.684 slash line between Double-A and Triple-A. His bat is ready for the major leagues, but his defense is still a work in progress and his future defensive home remains up in the air. Bryant has MVP potential, and should be up in early 2015.

He's ostensibly a speedster, only these were his first steals since August 3. Amarista is on the roster for his defensive versatility, nothing more.

    Anthony Rendon pinch-hit and lifted a walk-off RBI single to left field in the ninth inning of Wednesday's win over the D'Backs.

    Advice: Rendon got the night off, with Kevin Frandsen starting at third base in his place. But as the Nats squandered a 2-0 lead in the eighth, Rendon picked up his team by playing the hero. The third baseman is having a great season, slashing .278/.333/.462 with 16 home runs, 68 RBI, and 12 stolen bases.

    Advice: Dominguez's fourth-inning blast off of Allen Webster extended the Astros' lead to 4-0 at the time, but the lead would not last. The third baseman last homered on July 28. He's slashing a mediocre .231/.273/.360 with 14 home runs and 50 RBI on the year.

  • Nick Punto (hamstring) still not able to run
    Nick Punto (hamstring) still hasn't progressed to running.

    Advice: Punto strained his right hamstring on August 2, so he definitely won't be back when his 15 days are up. He may begin to run next week, but he's still a long way away from returning to the A's.

  • Manny Machado (knee) lands on disabled list
    Orioles placed 3B Manny Machado on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 12, with a sprained ligament in his right knee.

    Advice: The O's have yet to give an update on how much time Machado will miss, but obviously he'll be out for at least the next couple weeks. The club is expected to eventually provide more clarity on his timetable later Wednesday. Cord Phelps has been promoted to take Machado's spot on the roster.

  • Bryant hits MiLB-leading 39th home run
    Cubs prospect 3B Kris Bryant went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI on Tuesday for Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: The home run was Bryant's Minor League-leading 39th of the season, and the pair of RBI gives him an even 100 on the year. The 22-year-old slugger's production tailed off a bit in July, at least by his standards, but he's been red hot over his last 15 games, with a .373 batting average, six home runs and 13 RBI. The Cubs have tried to temper expectations regarding a potential September call-up, but with Arismendy Alcantara and Javier Baez already in the major leagues, and Jorge Soler likely to join them next month, it can't be ruled out. On the season, Bryant is batting .341/.448/.689 with 39 home runs, 33 doubles, 100 RBI and 15 stolen through 120 games.
