  • Steve Pearce leaves with abdominal strain
    Steve Pearce was removed from Friday's game against the Twins in the third inning due to a right abdominal strain.

    Advice: Pearce may have tweaked something while going into the stands trying to catch a foul pop up in the top half of the second inning. It sounds as if the O's are considering him day-to-day, so expect him to return to the lineup at some point over the weekend. Rotoworld.com

  • Cody Ross expected to return on Monday
    Cody Ross (calf) took live batting practice without issue on Friday, and is expected to return to the Diamondbacks on Monday when rosters expand.

    Advice: Ross was also able to run the bases on Friday. He has been sidelined since mid-July due to a strained calf, and isn't expected to see everyday at-bats even after his return. His days of fantasy relevancy in mixed leagues look to be over. Rotoworld.com

  • Desmond Jennings scratched from Rays lineup
    Desmond Jennings was a late scratch from the Rays lineup on Saturday due to left knee soreness.

  • Pirates recall Andrew Lambo from Triple-A
    Pirates recalled OF/1B Andrew Lambo from Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: The 26-year-old has been hammering the ball in the minor leagues this season, slashing .312/.386/.536 with 12 homers and 44 RBI in 69 games, primarily at Triple-A. Unless he finds his way into everyday at-bats though, his fantasy value is limited to NL-only formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Ruggiano to undergo season-ending surgery
    Justin Ruggiano will miss the remainder of the 2014 season after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle.

    Advice: Ruggiano wasn't likely to make it back before the end of the season had he opted to rest and rehab instead, so the surgery makes sense. It also allows uber-prospect Jorge Soler to man right field for the remainder of the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Cruz says extension talks not serious
    Nelson Cruz said Friday that while his agent and the Orioles have had extension talks after the All-Star break, they haven't been serious.

    Advice: CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported earlier Friday that the two sides were both interested in a long-term deal, but it doesn't sound terribly likely that anything will get done before the end of the season. Cruz leads all of baseball with 34 homers this season after having to settle for a one-year, $8 million deal at the beginning of spring training. Rotoworld.com

  • Mutual interest in extension between Cruz/O's
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that both the Orioles and Nelson Cruz "have expressed an interest" in a contract extension.

    Advice: Heyman cautions that "there's no definitive immediate word of any early negotiations," but it does appear the two sides are interested "in continuing the marriage, if possible." The report also adds that the O's will extend Cruz a qualifying offer this offseason if they're unable to lock him up on a long-term deal. After having to settle for a one-year, $8 million deal in late February, Cruz has gone on to hit a career-high 34 homers so far for Baltimore, a total that leads all of baseball. Rotoworld.com

Saunders has been out since mid-July. "I know he's lost 7 or 8 pounds," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said. "We just need to get him back out there. I would imagine so." Rotoworld.com

  • Gordon ties game with HR, but KC loses in 10
    Alex Gordon hit his 17th home run of the season, finishing 2-for-5 overall, in the Royals' 10-inning loss to the Twins on Thursday.

    Advice: Gordon tied the game up at 5-5 in the seventh inning with a solo home run off of Ryan Pressly. The AL MVP candidate now has 17 home runs, 61 RBI, eight stolen bases, and a .282/.356/.457 slash line. August has been good to him, as he is batting .305 (29-for-95) with eight home runs and 14 RBI.

    Jordan Schafer went 3-for-5 with four runs batted in and a stolen base in Thursday's 10-inning victory against the Royals.

    Advice: Schafer singled in a run in the fourth inning, doubled in a run in the sixth, and knocked in two insurance runs with a 10th-inning single. He has performed well since joining the Twins on a waiver claim, batting .328 (21-for-64) with 10 stolen bases since August 5. Schafer is on an eight-game hitting streak as well. Rotoworld.com

    Steve Pearce walked and hit a solo home run in five plate appearances as the Orioles defeated the Rays on Thursday.

    Advice: Pearce helped the Orioles respond to the Rays' two-run top of the first by putting his team on the board with his solo shot off of Jeremy Hellickson in the bottom half. The first baseman has hit safely in 11 consecutive games and has shown no signs of slowing down. He has 16 home runs, 37 RBI, and a .290/.355/.534 slash line in 313 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com

  • Adam Jones steals home in O's win over Rays
    Adam Jones went 2-for-3 with a walk and a steal of home in Thursday's victory against the Rays.

    Advice: In the bottom of the first inning, the Orioles pulled off a delayed steal with Nelson Cruz attempting to steal second base and Jones going home after the throw. The last time an Oriole stole home came on June 14, 2009 against the Braves, when Robert Andino accomplished the feat. Jones is slashing .288/.317/.475 with 24 home runs and 78 RBI on the season.

    Ryan Doumit came off the bench and slugged a two-run home run in the ninth inning of Thursday's win against the Mets.

    Advice: The Braves were already leading 3-1 at the time, so Doumit's two-run blast off of Daisuke Matsuzaka made it a non-save situation. Doumit hadn't homered since June 28, and he now has four on the season along with 16 RBI and a meager .198/.239/.310 slash line. Rotoworld.com

    Emilio Bonifacio finished 4-for-5 with an RBI triple, an RBI single, and a stolen base as the Braves defeated the Mets on Thursday.

    Advice: Bonifacio hadn't done much at the plate since joining the Braves at the deadline, as Thursday's effort is only his third multi-hit game as a Brave. He added some insurance for the Braves with an eighth-inning RBI triple to make it 2-0 and later scored the Braves' third run. He made it 6-1 with an RBI single in the ninth. Including his time with the Cubs, Bonifacio is slashing .283/.321/.369 with 20 RBI and 19 stolen bases. Rotoworld.com

  • Billy Hamilton reaches four times
    Billy Hamilton went 2-for-2 with two walks, two runs scored and two RBI against the Cubs on Thursday.

    Advice: But only one steal. Regardless, this probably rates as his best game of the second half. He entered with a .219/.247/.285 line in 151 at-bats since the All-Star break. The walks today were his 24th and 25th in 486 at-bats this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Jorge Soler goes 2-for-4, knocks in run
    Jorge Soler doubled and singled in a run Thursday against the Reds in his second big-league game.

    Advice: The double to left was playable, but Skip Schumaker misjudged it and let it go over his head. That said, the ball was absolutely scalded. Soler struck out in his other two at-bats today. He's 4-for-8 after two games. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Ruggiano has been out since last Friday and isn't making much progress, so the Cubs will try to get a more exact diagnosis. Jorge Soler was promoted from Triple-A Iowa when Ruggiano was placed on the disabled list and the talented 22-year-old is expected to finish out the 2014 season as Chicago's everyday right fielder.

    Sam Fuld went 3-for-5 and hit a two-run homer in the top of the ninth as the A's beat the Astros 5-4 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Eric Sogard singled in Craig Gentry to tie the game at 3 in the ninth, and Fuld hit his third homer of the year to give the A's the lead before the Astros rallied for one run in the bottom of the ninth.

    Jorge Soler homered in his first major league plate appearance and added an RBI single later, finishing 2-for-4 overall, as the Cubs were defeated by the Reds on Wednesday.

    Advice: Soler took Mat Latos out to center field for a no-doubt home run, starting off his big league career in fashion. The Cubs have been ushering in the youth movement and Soler is the latest part of that. The 22-year-old should get regular playing time in right field through the end of the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Kemp bangs out a homer in win versus Snakes
    Matt Kemp singled, homered and walked in Tuesday's 9-5 victory over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Kemp finished 2-for-4 with two runs scored and two RBI. He has leveled off a bit since a dominant June (.900 OPS) and July (.894), coming into tonight with a mediocre .226/.277/.440 slash line in August. Fortunately for his owners, the power hasn't disappeared even as Kemp has struggled to get on base. Perhaps tonight's performance will shake him out of his mini funk. Rotoworld.com

  • Gordon delivers walk-off homer to down Twins
    Alex Gordon hit a two-run walk-off home run to give the Royals a 2-1 victory over the Twins on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gordon hit the two-run shot off Twins closer Glen Perkins. The outfielder finished 2-for-4 in the game, bringing his line up to .283/.356/.454 on the year. He's been especially effective in August, as Tuesday's was his seventh home run to go with 12 RBI and 16 runs scored this month. Rotoworld.com

    Nelson Cruz finished 2-for-4 with an RBI double as the Orioles topped the Rays on Tuesday.

    Advice: Cruz hadn't enjoyed a multi-hit game since August 11, over two weeks ago. His seventh-inning RBI double gave the O's an insurance run, but proved to be ultimately unnecessary. The soon-to-be free agent leads baseball with 34 home runs and has a nice .256/.325/.512 slash line with 88 RBI to boot. Rotoworld.com

  • Cubs calling up OF prospect Jorge Soler
    David Kaplan of SportsTalk Live in Chicago reports that the Cubs will call up outfield prospect Jorge Soler.

    Advice: He'll join the team on Wednesday in Cincinnati. Soler has been on a tear lately at Triple-A Iowa, going 9-for-14 with two homers and seven RBI over his last three games. It's been an injury-shortened season for the Cuban defector, but Soler has crushed the ball when healthy, batting .338/.432/.687 with 14 homers and 54 RBI over 61 games. He's just 22 and hadn't played above A-ball before this season, but the Cubs obviously think Soler has earned a shot. He has enormous raw power and is worth owning in all fantasy leagues, as Soler will be the everyday right fielder down the stretch. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The 22-year old Soler is hitting .262/.356/.563 with 11 doubles, one triple, and six home runs over 30 games in Triple-A. He missed large chunks of the season due to a hamstring injury, and it is assumed that he will be promoted to the majors when rosters expand in September.

    Alex Gordon told the Kansas City Star that he intends to forgo free agency after next season and pick up his $13.25 million player option for 2016.

    Advice: That's easy to say now, but we'll see. Gordon will be 32 in 2016, and if he plays next year like he has this one, he could be in line for something like $72 million over four years. Passing that up to earn $13.25 million and going back on the market at age 33 doesn't seem like a very good idea at all.

  • Ruggiano homers, but Cubs fall to the Giants
    Justin Ruggiano went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run, but the Cubs lost to the Giants on Thursday.

    Advice: Ruggiano put the Cubs on top 2-1 with a two-run home run off of Madison Bumgarner in the bottom of the first inning. The Cubs' lead, however, would dissipate in the coming innings. Ruggiano has six on the season along with 28 RBI and a .283/.339/.430 slash line. Rotoworld.com

  • Steve Pearce launches 13th homer
    Steve Pearce hit his 13th homer Wednesday and has six extra-base hits in his last four games.

    Advice: Pearce had a putrid July and was being turned back into a bench player before Manny Machado got hurt. Given a reprieve, he suddenly found his stroke again Sunday, collecting as many extra-base hits these last four days as he had total the previous month and a half. The Orioles will find room for him as long as he hits, so those desperate for power in mixed leagues might want to give him another look. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Jones got the O's on the board with an RBI single in the first inning, his 76th RBI of the season. He later doubled and scored in the Orioles' three-run sixth inning. The outfielder is enjoying another terrific season at the dish, batting .285/.314/.475 with 23 home runs and 71 runs scored. Rotoworld.com
