  • Jake Buchanan to make spot start Friday
    Jake Buchanan will start on Friday versus the Reds.

    Advice: He's filling in for Jason Hammel, who was scratched due to right elbow tightness. Buchanan has made just one relief appearance for the Cubs this month but held a 4.34 ERA over 24 appearances -- 22 starts -- for Triple-A Iowa. He's not a desirable streaming option.

  • Jed Lowrie had an additional surgery
    In addition to surgery on his left foot, Jed Lowrie also recently had an operation for a deviated septum.

    Advice: "I didn’t think anything of it, and then I saw an ear, nose and throat specialist and it turns out it wasn’t just a deviated septum, there were also two bone spurs," Lowrie said. "My sleep had been messed up for a long time, I realized." The additional surgery doesn't change Lowrie's rehab schedule. He's expected to be ready to go for spring training.

  • Seth Smith (foot) doesn't miss a start
    Seth Smith (foot) was hitless in three at-bats Thursday against the Athletics.

    Advice: Smith departed Wednesday's game after being hit on the foot by a pitch, but he didn't have to miss a start. The Mariners are slated to face righties the next two days, so Smith will be back in there. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:13 am
  • Pagan singles, triples in win over Rockies
    Angel Pagan went 2-for-4 with a triple in Thursday's win over the Rockies.

    Advice: The triple was Pagan's fifth of the season. In addition, he is slashing .272/.325/.408 with 11 homers, 53 RBI and 68 RBI across 485 at-bats. He has notched multi-hit showings in three of his last six games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:38 pm
  • Zunino crunches go-ahead solo homer in win
    Mike Zunino rocked a go-ahead solo home run in the seventh inning of Thursday's win over the A's.

    Advice: Zunino mashed a solo home run off Liam Hendriks to lead off the seventh inning. That tater snapped a 1-1 tie and after a few tense moments in the ninth, the M's ultimately survived for a 3-2 victory. The 25-year-old backstop has always possessed a nice power stroke -- his homer on Thursday was his 12th of the season -- but is hitting just .217 for the campaign as a whole. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:21 pm
  • Chad Pinder socks solo home run in defeat
    Chad Pinder went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Pinder whacked a solo home run off Ariel Miranda in the sixth inning. That knotted the score at 1-1, but the Mariners would score solitary runs in the seventh and eighth inning to jump ahead before hanging on for the 3-2 win. In limited action covering 49 at-bats this season, the 24-year-old Pinder owns a .224/.250/.367 triple-slash. Thursday's home run was his first career dinger at the big league level.

  • Orlando posts four-hit night in loss to Twins
    Paulo Orlando went 4-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored Thursday against the Twins.

    Advice: Orlando is finishing the 2016 season in style, as he's now got a seven-game hitting streak during which he's 14-for-27 with three doubles. The 30-year-old has been a pleasant surprise all around for the Royals, batting .307/.335/.410 in 125 games and forcing his way into everyday at-bats between right and center field. Orlando should once again vie for regular playing time in 2017. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:07 pm
  • Miranda scatters four hits into sixth inning
    Ariel Miranda was sharp in taking a no-decision against the A's on Thursday, allowing one run on four hits over 5 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Miranda struck out six and did not walk a batter on the evening. Chad Pinder cracked a solo home run off him in the sixth inning, but it was otherwise smooth sailing for the 27-year-old southpaw. In 11 appearances (10 starts) this season, Miranda has pitched to a 3.88 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 44/18 K/BB ratio. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:07 pm
  • Sardinas collects three hits in loss to LAD
    Luis Sardinas went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI single in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Sardinas hit an RBI single in the fourth inning to boost the Padres to a 2-0 advantage. Said advantage would not hold for the long, as the Dodgers would seven runs over the next three innings. For the season as a whole, the 23-year-old shortstop is hitting .265/.339/.398 with two homers and six RBI over 76 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:04 pm
  • Butera enjoys three-hit night against Twins
    Drew Butera finished 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored Thursday against the Twins.

    Advice: Butera had four hits, including a homer, in five career at-bats against Twins starter Kyle Gibson heading into Thursday's game, and he added to that strange dominance with his second three-hit game of the 2016 season. Backing up Salvador Perez this season, the 33-year-old is batting .281/.322/.474 in 114 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:59 pm
  • Friedrich mired down by big sixth inning
    Christian Friedrich couldn't make it out of the sixth inning in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers, allowing five runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Friedrich surrendered an RBI double to Joc Pederson in the fifth inning, but the real killer frame was the sixth. He allowed four runs in that one. Over the course of 129 1/3 innings this season, the 29-year-old southpaw pitched to an underwhelming 4.80 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 100/52 K/BB ratio. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:59 pm
  • Gibson fans eight, allows four runs to Royals
    Kyle Gibson allowed four runs on nine hits while striking out eight over 6 1/3 innings against the Royals on Thursday.

    Advice: Gibson kept the Royals in check for most of the evening and was handed a lead in the top of the seventh, only to give it right back in the bottom of the frame before exiting. The eight strikeouts were a single-game high for the 28-year-old this season. In 25 starts this year, Gibson went 6-11 with a 5.07 ERA and 1.56 WHIP. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:55 pm
  • Mikie Mahtook doubles, homers in win over CWS
    Mikie Mahtook went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Thursday's win over the White Sox.

    Advice: Mahtook took a Jose Quintana offering for a solo ride in the fourth inning. The dinger was his third of the season. While the 26-year-old outfielder is hitting just .199/.237/.295 over 176 at-bats, he has picked it up of late, notching two-hit efforts in three of his last four games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:10 pm
  • Carlos Sanchez smacks two-run homer in loss
    Carlos Sanchez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's loss to the Rays.

    Advice: Sanchez rocked a two-run homer off Chris Archer in the seventh inning to draw the White Sox to within 5-3, but neither team would score again in the contest. For his part, the 24-year-old Sanchez is working to a .217/.247/.378 triple-slash over 143 at-bats. He has swatted four homers and driven in 21 runs in that space. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:09 pm
  • Seth Smith exits Wed. after being hit in foot
    Seth Smith was lifted for a pinch-runner after being hit in the foot during Wednesday's game against the Astros.

    Advice: Smith was struck in the foot by a pitch in the top of the sixth inning. Ben Gamel subsequently came on to pinch-run for him. The Mariners should provide an update as to Smith's status later on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:25 pm
  • Mike Zunino strikes out five times
    Mike Zunino went 0-for-5 and struck out three times against the Astros.

    Advice: Zunino turned the corner a few months ago. Then he turned another corner in August, and now he's practically right back where he was last year at this time; he's in a 10-for-75 slump that's dropped his average from .280 to .207 and his OPS from 1.102 to .785. Granted, no one ever thought he'd last with the 1.100 OPS. Still, we were hoping we'd seen the last of these horrendous slumps. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:26 pm
  • Pagan goes 3-for-5 with an RBI, run and steal
    Angel Pagan went 3-for-5 with an RBI, stole a base and scored a run in the Giants' extra-inning win on Saturday.

    Advice: He drove in a run with a single in the first inning. He scored the go-ahead run in the 10th inning on a Kelby Tomlinson single. Pagan has a .273 batting average with 11 bombs, 51 RBI and 66 runs scored in 122 games this year. He has pitched in 14 stolen bases as well. He is a decent extra outfielder in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:19 pm
  • Miranda yields three runs in four innings Sat
    Ariel Miranda departed after allowing three runs in four innings and was charged with a loss versus the Twins on Saturday.

    Advice: He gave up only three hits but two of them left the park. Jorge Polanco and Miguel Sano touched him up for solo homers. Miranda walked one and didn't register any strikeouts in the ballgame. He owns a 5-2 record and 4.10 ERA in 52 2/3 innings. His strikeout-to-walk ratio is a pedestrian 38 to 18. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:02 pm
  • Kyle Gibson takes loss to Mariners
    Kyle Gibson yielded two runs in five innings Friday in a loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Gibson would love to end on a strong note after a very disappointing year. He's allowed three runs over eight innings in his last two outings, lowering his ERA from 5.34 to 5.04. He only has one start left now, though. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:08 pm
  • Mahtook homers in loss to Red Sox
    Mikie Mahtook went 2-for-4 with a solo homer against the Red Sox on Friday.

    Advice: Mahtook’s second-inning homer against Drew Pomeranz was the only offense of the night for the Rays. The 26-year-old is seeing most of the playing time in right field with Steven Souza and Nick Franklin sidelined, but there’s not much to get excited about in fantasy leagues here. Mahtook is batting just .182/.226/.253 with two homers and 10 RBI over 57 games this season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:10 pm
  • Christian Friedrich loses shutout in eighth
    Christian Friedrich faltered late in Thursday's loss to the Giants, surrendering two runs on three hits over seven-plus innings.

    Advice: Friedrich and Giants starter Jeff Samardzija were locked in a fantastic pitcher's duel over the first seven innings, with both pitchers posting goose eggs. The Padres' issues began when Friedrich trotted back out to start the eighth inning. He surrendered a double and a single to open the frame. Both of those runners would come around to score after he was lifted from the proceedings. For the season, the 29-year-old southpaw has pitched to a 4.66 ERA and 1.42 WHIP. He will finish out his season with a home start against the Dodgers next time he toes the rubber. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:20 pm
  • Padres designate Nick Noonan for assignment
    Padres designated INF Nick Noonan for assignment.

    Advice: Noonan saw 105 at-bats with the Giants in 2013, but has only received a combined 40 major league at-bats in the three years since. The 27-year-old infielder managed just three hits in 18 at-bats in limited action with the Padres during the 2016 campaign. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:24 pm
