    Cardinals activated RHP Jason Motte from the 15-day disabled list.

    White Sox recalled RHP Scott Carroll from Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Caroll was optioned to Triple-A after he was hit third in a loss to the Tigers on Friday, but the White Sox brought him back now that rosters have expanded.

  • Motte (back) throws scoreless rehab frame
    Jason Motte (back) threw a scoreless rehab inning on Sunday night for Double-A Springfield.

    Advice: Motte needed only 12 pitches to get through the hitless frame, though his velocity was still in the low-90s. The Cardinals will likely activate him soon, but the former closer probably won't be trusted in high-pressure relief situations down the stretch this season. Rotoworld.com

  • White Sox option Scott Carroll to Triple-A
    White Sox optioned RHP Scott Carroll to Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Carroll was knocked around in Friday's loss to the Tigers, but this move has more to do with him having minor league options remaining than anything else. He will rejoin the rotation once rosters expand next week. Rotoworld.com

  • Scott Carroll hit hard in defeat vs. Tigers
    Scott Carroll was hit hard in a losing effort against the Tigers on Friday, surrendering seven runs (three earned) on 10 hits over his five frames.

    Advice: Carroll struck out two on the evening without walking a batter. The Tigers jumped on him early in this one, scratching out a pair of runs in the third inning, and tacking on five more in the third with the help of a defensive miscue. With a 5.07 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 52/38 K/BB ratio, he should be avoided in all fantasy formats for Friday's matchup against the Indians in Cleveland. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:41 pm
  • Jason Motte (back) throws off mound

  • A's option Drew Pomeranz to Low-A Beloit
    Athletics optioned LHP Drew Pomeranz to Low-A Beloit.

    Advice: Pomeranz was sharp in a spot start against the Astros on Wednesday, striking out seven batters and allowed only an unearned run over 5 1/3 innings. He'll likely return as a long reliever when rosters expand in September. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:41 am
  • Drew Pomeranz strikes out seven Astros
    Drew Pomeranz allowed just an unearned run over 5 1/3 innings and struck out seven against the Astros on Wednesday.

    Advice: It wasn't enough to get Pomeranz a win, but it was a performance that could earn him more starts in September, depending on how things go with Jason Hammel. He'll probably be optioned back to Triple-A now, but he'll be worth playing in mixed leagues if he's needed again. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:13 pm
  • A's recall Drew Pomeranz for Wednesday start
    Athletics recalled LHP Drew Pomeranz from Triple-A Sacramento.

    Advice: Pomeranz will start for the A's on Wednesday night against the Astros. He had a strong 2.91 ERA and 48/23 K/BB ratio in 55 2/3 innings before being demoted in July and makes for a good fantasy streamer in Houston. Rotoworld.com

  • Wade LeBlanc designated for assignment
    Angels designated LHP Wade LeBlanc for assignment.

    Advice: It comes as no surprise after he was pummeled for six earned runs over just 3 1/3 innings on Monday. The Angels will now have to find another starter for Saturday, with Randy Wolf or Michael Roth looking like the favorites if they don't get someone from outside the organization. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 3:11 pm
  • Richards' replacement LeBlanc gets rocked
    In his first start of the season, Wade LeBlanc was detonated by the Marlins for six earned runs over just 3 1/3 innings in Monday's loss.

    Advice: Los Angeles has less than a week to acquire Garrett Richards' replacement from outside the organization. They hadn't shown much resolve to do so over the past several days, but perhaps tonight's game will expedite their resolve. LeBlanc (making his first major league start since May 6, 2013) has been given numerous opportunities over the years -- and in great pitcher's parks -- and proven time and time that he isn't a major league-caliber starting pitcher. He's got a 10.13 ERA in limited action this year, but his 4.56 career ERA, accrued mostly during stints with the Padres and Marlins, tells you all you need to know. If LeBlanc gets another start, don't mimic the Angels' mistake by trotting him out in an AL-only league. Rotoworld.com

  • Joe Thatcher (ankle) does some running
    Joe Thatcher (ankle) has begun running and hopes to throw a bullpen session on Saturday.

  • Drew Pomeranz getting ball for A's Wed.
    Athletics manager Bob Melvin confirmed Monday that Drew Pomeranz will be recalled to start on Wednesday versus the Astros.

    Advice: The A's will use a sixth starter for one turn in order to set up the top four of their starting rotation for a big four-game weekend set in Anaheim. Pomeranz held a 2.91 ERA and 48/23 K/BB ratio in 55 2/3 innings before being bumped to Triple-A Sacramento in July by the Jason Hammel and Jeff Samardzija trade. He makes for a decent fantasy streamer versus the Astros. Rotoworld.com

  • Pomeranz likely to start Wednesday in HOU
    Drew Pomeranz is likely to start for the A's on Wednesday night against the Astros.

    Advice: The A's will use a sixth starter this week in Houston to line up the top four of their starting rotation for a big four-game weekend set in Anaheim. Pomeranz had a cool 2.91 ERA and 48/23 K/BB ratio in 55 2/3 innings before being bumped to Triple-A Sacramento in July by the Jason Hammel and Jeff Samardzija trade. He should make for a decent fantasy streamer versus the light-hitting 'Stros. Rotoworld.com

  • Sean Doolittle (intercostal) placed on the DL
    Athletics placed LHP Sean Doolittle on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right intercostal muscle.

    Advice: The hard-throwing southpaw is expected to need only a minimum trip on the DL, but side injuries can tend to linger. The A's are planning to use Eric O'Flaherty as their primary closer in Doolittle's absence, and he is worthy of being added in all mixed fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Sean Doolittle feels side pain in ninth
    Sean Doolittle notched the save as the A's beat the Angels 2-1 on Saturday, but reportedly felt some side pain on his next-to-last pitch.

    Advice: Oakland's second win over the Angels in two days put the two teams back into a tie for MLB's best record, but it could be a costly victory if Doolittle has to miss some time. Fortunately, he said afterwards that he doesn't think it's serious; it might have been nothing more than a cramp. His owners might want to pick up Luke Gregerson just to be safe. Rotoworld.com

  • Carroll allows five runs en route to 8th loss
    Scott Carroll was sacked with his eighth loss of the season after allowing five runs (four earned) in six innings as the White Sox fell to the Yankees on Saturday.

    Advice: Carroll's tough season continues. Along with three walks, the right-hander allowed seven hits, four of which went for extra bases, and did not record a strikeout. He now carries an ugly 5.05 ERA with a 1.53 WHIP and a 50/38 K/BB ratio. Carroll will look for improvement in his next start at home against the Tigers on Friday. Rotoworld.com
