    Indians sent LHP T.J. House outright to Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: House was designated for assignment by the Tribe on September 20 and passed through waivers unclaimed. The left-hander spent the majority of the 2016 season in Triple-A, posting a 3.98 ERA in 12 starts and 21 relief appearances. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:07 am

  • Tyler Holt (wrist) appears off bench Tuesday
    Tyler Holt (wrist) served as a pinch-runner and defensive replacement Tuesday at St. Louis.

    Advice: Holt hasn't started a game since being scratched Friday with a sore left wrist, though it doesn't sound like the wrist is much of a problem anymore. He is slashing just .235/.327/.296 in 104 games (33 starts) this season as a utility outfielder. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:54 am
  • Chase Utley cracks solo home run in defeat
    Chase Utley went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Utley rocked a solo homer in the third inning. At the time, it drew the Dodgers to within 3-1. They wouldn't score again in the game. For the season, the veteran second baseman is slashing .254/.323/.396 with 13 homers and 51 RBI over 503 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:54 pm
  • Adrian Gonzalez exits with sinus infection
    Adrian Gonzalez exited Tuesday's loss to the Padres due to a sinus infection.

    Advice: Gonzalez saw two at-bats before being lifted. He should be considered day-to-day moving forward, but there is little reason to believe this will cost him more than a game or two. If that. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:50 pm
  • Paul Clemens handcuffs Dodgers over 5 IP
    Paul Clemens pitched well in Tuesday's win over the Dodgers, surrendering one run on three hits over five innings.

    Advice: Chase Utley burned Clemens for a solo home run in the third inning, but he kept the scoreboard clean otherwise. This was the 28-year-old right-hander's final start of the 2016 season. He finishes out holding a 4.27 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 46/29 K/BB ratio over 65 1/3 innings (16 appearances, 12 starts). Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:46 pm
  • LeMahieu whiffs three times in loss to Giants
    DJ LeMahieu went 1-for-4 with three strikeouts in Tuesday's loss to the Giants.

    Advice: LeMahieu simply couldn't square up Matt Moore, though the same could be said for just about everybody on the Rockies. For the season, the 28-year-old second baseman is slashing .349/.418/.496 with 11 homers, 66 RBI and 11 steals over 550 at-bats. This has been a career-year for LeMahieu in a number of statistical categories, including home runs, RBI and batting average. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:31 pm
  • Garcia has triple, three-run homer vs. Rays
    Leury Garcia went 2-for-4 with a triple, a three-run home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Both the triple and the dinger were the first in 13 games for Garcia, who was recalled in early September after spending the year with the club's Triple-A affiliate. Garcia had some prospect juice a few years back and was acquired by the Sox in a deal with the Rangers for Alex Rios in 2013, but he hasn't been able to carve out a meaningful role with the big club in recent seasons. He'll continue to be a complementary player going forward. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:28 pm
  • Matt Moore fans 11 as Giants roll Rockies
    Matt Moore was phenomenal in Tuesday's 12-3 romp-of-a-win against the Rockies, striking out 11 while allowing one run on six hits over 7 2/3 innings.

    Advice: This was peak Matt Moore. Not only did he strike out 11, he failed to walk a batter in the win. Moore had the luxury of an offensive surge from the Giants and held a 6-1 advantage after five innings. That lead would only grow as the game wandered into the later innings. Since coming over to the Giants from the Rays at the trade deadline, Moore has been something of a mixed bag, pitching to a mediocre 4.48 ERA and 1.43 WHIP over 60 1/3 innings, but counteracting that by degrees with several brilliant starts in the vain of Tuesday's. He is currently scheduled to start Sunday's regular-season finale against the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:24 pm
  • Cobb struggles early and often in loss to Sox
    Alex Cobb allowed eight runs on eight hits over three innings in a loss to the White Sox on Tuesday.

    Advice: Cobb didn't discriminate with his awfulness, allowing at least two runs in each of his three innings of work. That included a pair of homers, a two-run job in the first inning and a three-run shot in the third. After posting a nice 3.06 ERA through his first three starts back from Tommy John surgery, Cobb has now allowed 15 runs in his last 4 1/3 innings. He'll get one more chance to get some work in during the 2016 season on Sunday, when the Rays travel to take on the Rangers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:23 pm
  • Jefry Marte clubs grand slam in win over A's
    Jefry Marte went 2-for-4 with a grand slam in Tuesday's 8-1 win over the A's

    Advice: Marte stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and nobody out in the fourth inning. Facing off against Daniel Mengden, he proceeded to launch a 405-foot bomb to dead central to jump the Angels to a 5-0 lead. That was more than enough for a game Ricky Nolasco. In addition to the granny, Marte also picked up a double. He has done a nice job in a complementary role this season, hitting .251/.307/.461 with 13 homers and 42 RBI over 243 at-bats.

  • Jerad Eickhoff pitches well before rain delay
    Jerad Eickhoff tossed four innings of one-run ball before exiting following a rain delay Tuesday versus the Braves.

    Advice: It's too bad for Eickhoff's fantasy owners, as he had struck out five while yielding only a Freddie Freeman solo shot before the skies opened up. It was surely set to be the righty's seventh straight quality start. Eickhoff's season will conclude against the Mets on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:00 pm
  • Waino gets win despite 10 hits, five runs
    Adam Wainwright got the win Tuesday despite allowing 10 hits and five runs over 5 2/3 innings against the Reds.

    Advice: That's sort of been the story for Wainwright in recent starts -- in four of his past five outings, the right-hander has failed to get out of the sixth inning while allowing at least four runs, and yet he's 4-1 in his last five starts. That doesn't mean he's pitching well, though, and the Cardinals will need him to be better if they're still in the playoff hunt when he takes the mound Sunday against the Pirates. The 35-year-old will carry a 4.67 ERA and 1.40 WHIP into that contest. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:53 pm
  • Ryan Howard belts 15th career grand slam
    Ryan Howard hit his 15th career grand slam in Tuesday's loss to the Braves.

    Advice: Howard followed a couple singles and a walk in the first inning with a long one to right field off of Julio Teheran. He also added a single in a later at-bat. Howard's .196/.259/.453 batting line is awfully ugly, but he's still hitting balls over the boards with 24 home runs. It's his highest home run total since 2011. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:47 pm
  • Altuve's two hits widen batting title lead
    Jose Altuve went 2-for-3 with an RBI double and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Mariners.

    Advice: Altuve stretched his insurmountable lead in the race for the American League batting title by knocking the pair of hits, and he's now batting .339/.397/.538 in 157 games. The next-closest hitter in the AL is David Ortiz, who is hitting .318 after Tuesday's game. Altuve's 28 steals are also tops in the AL, and he's seventh in runs with 107. The 26-year-old has already set personal bests with 24 homers and 96 RBI as well. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:34 pm
  • Fiers gives up eight hits, four runs to M's
    Mike Fiers allowed four runs on eight hits over five innings Tuesday against the Mariners.

    Advice: Fiers struggled early, giving up runs in each of the first three innings, before settling down to toss two scoreless frames to end his outing. He didn't walk a batter and struck out five in the no-decision. Fiers had some ups and downs in 2016, but he finishes with an 11-8 mark, 4.48 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 31 games, including 30 starts. The Astros will have to decide this winter whether those numbers are good enough to earn him a look at a rotation spot next spring. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:24 pm
  • Holt (wrist) appears as defensive replacement
    Tyler Holt (wrist) appeared a defensive replacement in Monday's blowout win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Holt was scratched from Friday's lineup with a sore left wrist, but he's apparently making progress. The 27-year-old has hit .235/.327/.296 over 103 games this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:29 am
  • DJ LeMahieu getting the night off Saturday
    DJ LeMahieu is not in the Rockies' lineup Saturday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: He's just getting a routine day off. LeMahieu has had a career year for the Rockies and is on the cusp of winning his first batting title. Rookie Pat Valaika will draw the start at second base Saturday while batting seventh against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:11 pm
  • Tyler Holt scratched with sore wrist
    Tyler Holt was scratched from the Reds' lineup Friday with a sore left wrist.

    Advice: It looks to be a day-to-day situation. Steve Selsky has taken Holt's spot in right field. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:15 pm
  • D.J. LeMahieu hits solo home run in loss
    D.J. LeMahieu went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: LeMahieu connected for a solo shot off Brett Anderson with one out in the fifth inning. The tater was his 11th of the season. In addition, the 28-year-old second baseman is hitting .352/.422/.503 and has driven in 66 runs over 537 at-bats. He has put forth two-hit showings in three of his last four games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:14 pm
  • Altuve collects three singles in loss to LAA
    Jose Altuve went 3-for-4 with three singles in Thursday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Altuve was the only Astros batter to notch multiple hits on the evening. This was the diminutive second baseman's 11th game with at least three hits. He has been nothing short of magical this season and is slashing .341/.399/.542 with 24 homers, five triples, 94 RBI and 27 steals over 605 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:21 pm
  • Mike Fiers fans nine as Astros fall to Angels
    Mike Fiers took the tough-luck loss in Thursday's game against the Angels, striking out nine while allowing two runs over 6 1/3 innings.

    Advice: The nine strikeouts were a season-best for Fiers, who scattered four hits over his 6 1/3 innings of work. One of those four hits went for a two-run home run courtesy of Albert Pujols in the first inning. Fiers' final outing of the season is currently scheduled to come at home against the Mariners. He will carry a 4.40 ERA and 1.35 WHIP (163 2/3 innings) into that outing. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:15 pm
  • Howard (knee) back in Phillies lineup Thurs.
    Ryan Howard (knee) is back in the Phillies' starting lineup Thursday versus the Mets.

    Advice: Howard has been out all week with left knee discomfort. He got it drained on Sunday. The veteran first baseman is batting just .193/.250/.439 with 22 homers and 51 RBI in 104 games this season for Philadelphia. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:46 pm
  • Matt Moore pounded by Dodgers
    Matt Moore was lit up for six runs in one-plus innings by the Dodgers on Wednesday.

    Advice: It was a disaster; Moore faced 11 batters and nine reaches base safely (seven hits, one walk, one HBP). It was also the polar opposite of his previous outing at Dodger Stadium, when he came within one out of a no-hitter on Aug. 25. As per usual, he's been up and down since joining the Giants. In his 10 starts, he's allowed two runs or fewer six times and five runs or more three times. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:27 pm
  • Cobb gets shucked by Yankees on Wednesday
    Alex Cobb got taken out behind the woodshed on Wednesday as he was whipped for seven runs in just 1 1/3 innings in a loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: New York's batters had no trouble squaring up his pitches tonight. He gave up nine hits and a walk while retiring only four batters -- two via the strikeout. He was making his fourth start of the season. He entered the game with a 3.06 ERA and doubled it in a hurry, departing with a 6.16 ERA. He missed all of last year and most of this year recovering from arm surgery. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:45 pm
  • Eickhoff wins with quality start vs White Sox
    Jerad Eickhoff was quality on Wednesday, giving up three runs on six hits in seven innings of work in an 8-3 victory over the White Sox.

    Advice: He allowed a home run to the first batter of the game and then posted zeroes until the seventh inning when he gave up two more solo homers. He registered six punchouts against only one walk. The win improves his record to 11-14 with a 3.75 ERA in his first full season in the majors. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:16 pm
  • Clemens pitches well outside of home run
    Paul Clemens kept the Diamondbacks at bay in Tuesday's win, yielding two runs (none earned) on three hits over 5 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Clemens couldn't quite manage a quality start, but it was a nice start nonetheless. Paul Goldschmidt burned him for a two-run home run in the sixth inning for his lone spot of trouble. The 28-year-old right-hander will carry a 4.48 ERA and 1.56 WHIP into a home start against the Dodgers next time he toes the rubber. As currently scheduled, that would be his last start of the 2016 campaign. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:25 pm
  • Wainwright's arm, bat lead Cards past Rockies
    Adam Wainwright allowed four runs -- including three home runs -- over 5 1/3 innings in a win over the Rockies on Tuesday.

    Advice: Wainwright surrendered seven hits, including three solo homers to Daniel Descalso, Charlie Blackmon and Gerardo Parra, and he also walked two on the night. Fortunately for Wainwright, pitchers get a chance to help their own cause in the National League, and he did so with a two-run double in the second inning and a two-RBI single in the fifth. The 35-year-old will take the wins any way he can get them at this stage of his career, and he moved to 12-9 with a 4.57 ERA and 1.38 with Tuesday's victory. Wainwright will go for two in a row when he squares off with the Reds on Monday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:35 pm
  • Ryan Howard (knee) out Tuesday, Wednesday
    Ryan Howard (knee) won't start Tuesday or Wednesday.

    Advice: "I don't want [his knee] to blow up again," said manager Pete Mackanin. Howard had that balky left knee drained on Sunday and will be limited to pinch-hitting duties for much of this week. Tommy Joseph is at first base and batting cleanup Tuesday versus the White Sox. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:51 pm
  • Indians designate T.J. House for assignment
    Indians designated LHP T.J. House for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot for Adam Plutko on the 40-man roster. House had some momentum after a promising debut with the Indians in 2014, but he dealt with shoulder problems last year and struggled in Triple-A this year. He's still just 26 years old, so someone could take a chance on him. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:51 am

  • Adrian Gonzalez delivers in ninth for Dodgers
    Adrian Gonzalez delivered a game-winning double in the bottom of the ninth for the Dodgers against the Giants on Monday.

    Advice: Hunter Pence seemed to have a play on Gonzalez's fly to the wall in right, but he couldn't come up with it, and Corey Seager, who held up thinking the ball would be caught, was able to come around from second. It was Gonzalez's lone hit of the day. After a big August surge, he's hit just .210 with one homer and four walks in his past 22 games. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:43 pm
  • Chase Utley in lineup Monday vs. Giants
    Chase Utley is in Monday's lineup against the Giants.

    Advice: Utley usually sits against lefties, but he'll make the start at second base with Madison Bumgarner on the hill. He's hitting eighth. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:16 pm
  • Ryan Howard has knee drained on Sunday
    Ryan Howard had his balky left knee drained on Sunday.

    Advice: Phillies manager Pete Mackanin is hopeful that Howard will return this season, and could be back as early as Tuesday if his knee responds well. Tommy Joseph will handle most of the starts at first base in his absence. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 3:18 pm
  • Adrian Gonzalez not in Sunday's lineup
    Adrian Gonzalez is absent from the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's just getting a day off with the Diamondbacks throwing lefty Robbie Ray. The Rob Segedin is starting at first base. Joc Pederson, Josh Reddick, Chase Utley and Yasmani Grandal are also on the bench, as the Dodgers are going with Enrique Hernandez in center field, Yasiel Puig in right, Charlie Culberson at second base and Austin Barnes at catcher. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 10:30 am
  • Ryan Howard (knee) out again Sunday
    Ryan Howard (knee) remained out of the Phillies' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Howard is dealing with some swelling in his left knee. Tommy Joseph will handle first base. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 7:14 am
  • Fiers fires six shutout frames in Sat. win
    Mike Fiers earned a 2-1 win over the Mariners by firing six innings of shutout baseball on Saturday.

    Advice: He surrendered only three hits and one base-on-balls while ringing up four strikeouts. The win advances his record to 11-7 with a 4.46 ERA in 157 1/3 innings. This was a nice bounce-back effort after getting pounded by the Cubs in his last outing. He has not been able to match his performance of the last two seasons, largely due to an elevated home run rate and a depressed strikeout rate. He has a juicy matchup with the Angels on tap next.
