  • Seager connects for three-run HR in win
    Kyle Seager finished 2-for-5 with a three-run home run in Friday's win over the Astros.

    Advice: Seager's three-run blast off Jake Buchanan capped a seven-run rally for the Mariners in the fourth inning. After going hitless in five straight games, the 26-year-old has three multi-hit games in his last six. Seager has been a consistent source of production for fantasy owners this season, batting .273/.341/.466 with 24 home runs and 92 RBI -- both career-highs -- over 150 games. There's a case to be made that he has been the Mariners' most valuable position player this season, not Robinson Cano. Rotoworld.com

  • Plouffe has walk-off single vs. Indians
    Trevor Plouffe delivered a walk-off RBI single in a 5-4 win over the Indians in 10 innings on Friday.

    Advice: Danny Santana and Brian Dozier each singled to begin the 10th inning before Joe Mauer was intentionally walked to lead the bases. Kyle Crockett managed to get rookie Kennys Vargas to strike out swinging, but Terry Francona brought in Josh Tomlin to face Plouffe, who dropped a single into center field to end it. Plouffe hasn't been able to maintain the form he showed in August, but he's had a productive year on the whole, batting .251/.321/.422 with 14 home runs and 79 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Murphy has four-hit game against Braves
    Daniel Murphy went 4-for-5 with a run scored against the Braves on Friday.

    Advice: Murphy collected three singles and a double. The 29-year-old had just 4 hits in his last 22 at-bats coming into Friday's action, so fantasy owners will have to hope that this is a sign of things to come over the final week and a half of the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Conor Gillaspie goes hitless, strands seven
    Conor Gillaspie had a forgettable night at the plate in a win over the Rays on Friday, going hitless in five at-bats and leaving seven men stranded.

    Advice: Hitting in the cleanup spot in manager Robin Ventura's lineup, he needs to do a much better job capitalizing in run-producing situations. He's enjoying a nice season overall though, hitting .287/.339/.424 with seven homers and 57 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Forsythe homers, drives home three in loss
    Logan Forsythe had a big night at the plate in Friday's loss to the White Sox, going 2-for-3 with a double, home run and all three of the team's RBI.

    Advice: He has made a living out of hammering southpaws, and Jose Quintana certainly wasn't exempt in this one. It has been a rough season on the whole for Forsythe however, hitting just .231/.296/.343 with six long balls and 26 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Edwin Encarnacion connects for 33rd homer
    Edwin Encarnacion smacked a two-run homer in Friday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Encarnacion underwent a precautionary MRI on his back early Friday, but he felt well enough to play. The 31-year-old now has 33 homers on the year, which ties him for fifth in the American League. Rotoworld.com

  • Edwin Encarnacion has precautionary MRI
    Edwin Encarnacion recently underwent a precautionary MRI on his back.

  • Zimmerman (hamstring) to be activated Sat.
    Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

    Advice: Zimmerman went 3-for-8 with a home run while getting in some at-bats at the Nationals' spring training complex and, most importantly, apparently didn't have issues with his right hamstring. Don't expect him to play every day, but Zimmerman is obviously a nice bat for the surging Nats to welcome back. Rotoworld.com

  • Amarista goes 2-for-3 with a homer, two RBI
    Alexi Amarista continued to torment the Phillies on Thursday, going 2-for-3 with a homer, two RBI and two runs scored.

    Advice: He finished a triple short of the cycle on Tuesday, and went 6-for-11 (.545) with a double, two homers, three runs scored and five RBI over the last three games. Where did this come from? Your guess is as good as ours. Amarista entered those games batting .237 with three homers total. He's got the slash line up to .245 /.294/.323. Rotoworld.com

  • Rendon's two hits, SB help Nats down Marlins
    Anthony Rendon went 2-for-5 with a stolen base and a pair of runs scored in Thursday's victory over the Marlins.

    Advice: Rendon brought his league-leading runs scored total up to 110 with the effort. He's also up to 16 stolen bases on the season, leaving him four shy of a 20 HR/20 SB season. The Nationals' MVP is slashing .286/.348/.473. Rotoworld.com

    Nolan Arenado (pneumonia) could miss the rest of the season.

    Brock Holt (concussion) will resume baseball activities Friday.

    Advice: Holt was diagnosed with a concussion last week, but he got positive news in a checkup on Thursday. While he's making progress, it's unclear if he'll play again this season. Red Sox manager John Farrell has mentioned the possibility of sending him to the instructional league next month so that he can go into the offseason with some peace of mind. Rotoworld.com

  • Rosales goes 3-for-4 with a steal in victory
    Adam Rosales went 3-for-4 with a steal in Wednesday's 6-1 win against the A's.

    Advice: He's 6-for-12 (.500) with two walks over his last three games, the past two of which have come against his former team. Which must be sweet. You might recall last year's Rosales transaction shenanigans between these two clubs. If not, here's your primer: The A's DFA'd him on Deadline Day, the Rangers claimed him on August 2, they DFA'd him on August 5, the A's claimed him back on August 8 and DFA'd him on August 10. The Rangers got him back for good on yet another claim two days later. Rosales has surprisingly turned into a productive AL-only player as the season winds down. He's now slashing .297/.371/.445 across 46 games. Rotoworld.com

  • Miguel Cabrera doubles twice in loss
    Miguel Cabrera went 4-for-5 with two doubles Wednesday in the loss to the Twins.

    Advice: He finally made an out in the ninth when he flew out to the warning track. Cabrera's doubles were the Tigers' only extra-base hits of the night. He now has 48 doubles, just two shy of his career high from way back in 2005. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:34 pm
  • Longoria homers again, but Rays fall to Yanks
    Evan Longoria went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Longoria broke a scoreless tie in the fourth with a solo home run off of Brandon McCarthy, and brought the Rays back within one run with an RBI ground out in the bottom of the sixth, but it wasn't enough. Longoria now has five home runs in September, tying his season-high for any one month. He has 22 on the season along with 90 RBI and a .252/.320/.407 line. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:17 pm
  • Gosselin logs 3 hits at top of order in a win
    Phil Gosselin went 3-for-4 and scored a run in Wednesday's victory against the Nationals.

    Advice: Gosselin was the only Brave to register multiple hits on the evening. He has multiple hits in three out of his last four ballgames, in fact, and is slashing a respectable .309/.343/.381 in 103 plate appearances this season -- certainly an upgrade over Dan Uggla. Rotoworld.com

  • Brewers plan to pick up option on 3B Ramirez
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Brewers intend to exercise their half of Aramis Ramirez's $14 million option for 2015.

    Advice: Of course, Ramirez could always turn down his portion of the option and attempt to find a multi-year deal. The 36-year-old has been productive when healthy this season, batting .295/.341/.447 with 15 home runs and 65 RBI over 123 games. Rotoworld.com

He's scheduled to DH on Thursday and will then play seven innings of left field on Friday. The Nationals are hoping to have him back on their active roster in some capacity for the final week of the regular season (and then into the playoffs). Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Castellanos was a late scratch Tuesday after fouling a ball off his left foot in his final at-bat on Monday. It was never a serious concern. The 22-year-old third baseman is batting .266/.313/.405 with 10 home runs and 60 RBI in 137 games this season. Rotoworld.com

    Alexi Amarista finished 3-for-4 with a double, homer, two RBI and one run scored on Tuesday against the Phillies.

    Advice: He came into this game batting .204 with no extra-base hits in September. So naturally Amarista finishes a triple short of the cycle in Petco, doing most of his damage against Phillies' starter A.J. Burnett. It'll be awhile before you see another performance like this out of Amarista. Even after the monster game, he's batting .242/.292/.313 on the season. Rotoworld.com

    Adrian Beltre went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles and a run scored in a 6-3 win versus the A's on Tuesday.

    Advice: Beltre had gone hitless (0-for-6) in his previous two games. The 35-year-old has only hit one homer since August 11. He is slashing .325/.387/.493 and is on pace for 19 homers and 71 RBI. That'll be his lowest home run total since 2009. Rotoworld.com

  • Gillaspie's three-run triple crushes Royals
    Conor Gillaspie hit a three-run triple in the seventh inning, and the White Sox held on to beat the Royals 7-5 on Tuesday.

    Advice: With one out and runners on the corners, the Royals opted to walk Jose Abreu to bring up Gillaspie. The 27-year-old made them pay for that decision, ripping a triple into the gap to clear the bases and give the White Sox the lead. The triple was surprisingly his fifth of the season, giving him 57 RBI. Gillaspie finished 2-for-5 in the game to raise his season line to a strong .293/.345/.433. Rotoworld.com

  • Flores homers twice, knocks in 6 as Mets win
    Wilmer Flores had a career night, going 3-for-4 with a double, a pair of home runs, and six runs batted in as the Mets trounced the Marlins on Tuesday.

    Advice: Flores tied the game at 1-1 with a fourth-inning double, then kept adding on with a three-run home run in the fifth and a two-run blast in the seventh, both off of Brad Penny. Flores entered the night with four home runs in 229 plate appearances, so it was certainly an uncharacteristically powerful performance. Along with six homers, Flores has knocked in 28 runs and posted a .245/.280/.386 slash line. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Zimmerman was able to run at 60 percent on Friday and continues to make progress toward a return to the Nationals lineup.

  • Arenado has RBI double vs. Cardinals
    Nolan Arenado had an RBI double Friday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: It was the only offense of the game for the Rockies and ended a 21-inning scoreless drought for the club. Arenado is batting a modest .216 (8-for-37) this month, but he collected four home runs and eight RBI along the way. Not surprisingly, the 23-year-old has produced significantly better at home than on the road this season, but he still figures to begin 2015 as a top-12 third baseman in mixed fantasy leagues.

    Advice: It's the first time he's ran since being placed on the disabled list back in late July. Zimmerman did starts and stops while running and also did some hitting on the field.

    Advice: The blast to dead center off Santiago Casilla was pretty impressive. Lamb, though, is still struggling for the most part, with a .215 average and a 30/6 K/BB ratio in 84 at-bats. The Diamondbacks will keep running him out there, but if he does show rapid improvement, they may consider shifting Aaron Hill to third base next year. Rotoworld.com

  • Brock Holt sent to see concussion specialist
    Brock Holt was sent to see a concussion specialist in Pittsburgh.

    Advice: Holt left a game last Friday due to dizziness and hasn't many any progress in recent days. It's unclear what the source of the issue was, but the Red Sox aren't going to take any chances. Rotoworld.com

  • Holt out again Thursday
    Brock Holt (illness, neck) is out of the starting lineup for the Red Sox again on Thursday against the Royals.

    Advice: Holt, who has been fighting an illness and some neck stiffness, will now miss his sixth straight start. He's hoping to return to action this weekend. Rotoworld.com

  • Zimmerman to go to instructional league soon
    Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) is tentatively scheduled to go to the instructional league in Viera, Florida next week.

    Advice: Zimmerman, out since late July with a Grade 3 hamstring strain, resumed taking batting practice earlier this week. Running at full speed will be the real test for his hamstring, but assuming no setbacks, he'll get eased into game action in Florida before rejoining the Nationals. He could make it back during the final week of the regular season, but fantasy owners obviously shouldn't be counting on him at this point. Rotoworld.com

  • Longoria homers as Rays fall to the Yankees
    Evan Longoria went 1-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run as the Rays took an 8-5 loss to the Yankees on Wednesday.

    Advice: Longoria's home run was too little, too late, as it came in the ninth inning off of Esmil Rogers. The third baseman has homered three times in his last seven games and now has 20 on the season along with 85 RBI and a .254/.322/.403 slash line. It is certainly a disappointing season but he is attempting to end the regular season on a positive note. Rotoworld.com

  • Daniel Murphy starts at third base Wednesday
    Daniel Murphy started at third base for the Mets Wednesday.

    Advice: With David Wright being shut down for the season, the Mets will turn to fill-ins for the remainder of the season. Murphy isn't a stranger to the position -- he's started 25 games at third base in his career -- but he hasn't manned the hot corner since 2011. It may turn out to be a positive for fantasy purposes -- if Murphy starts five games at third between now and the end of the season he'll be third base-eligible for next season. Rotoworld.com

  • Anthony Rendon out due to illness
    Anthony Rendon is not in Wednesday's lineup due to illness.

    Advice: He should be fine in a day or two. Kevin Frandsen is at third base in Rendon's place. Rotoworld.com

  • Gyorko goes 2-for-4 with homer and 2 RBI
    Jedd Gyorko finished 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's 6-3 win against the Dodgers.

    Advice: This was Gyorko's third multi-hit game in his past four games, and his second multi-RBI game during that stretch. This was his first homer since August 19. Mostly due to a rotten start, he's slashing .203/.263/.335 on the year. Rotoworld.com

  • Amarista snaps morbid 0-for-17 streak
    Alexi Amarista snapped an 0-for-17 stretch of futility by going 1-for-4 with a run scored Tuesday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Amarista's calling card is his defense, but even the leather wouldn't keep him in the lineup for most teams. The Padres have always viewed offense as optional, so he makes for a nice fit. Amarista is slashing .234/.285/.298 with three homers over 359 at-bats. Rotoworld.com
