    Yadier Molina went 3-for-4 and drove home four runs on Saturday as the Cardinals smashed the Cubs 10-4.

    Advice: Molina got the scoring started with a two-run double in the first inning, then added on to the rout with a two-run single in the seventh. He has had a nice bounceback season offensively, slashing .300/.354/.413 with seven homers and 53 RBI. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:51 pm
  • Contreras clubs 11th homer in loss to Cards
    Willson Contreras clubbed his 11th home run as the Cubs fell to the Cardinals on Saturday afternoon in Chicago.

    Advice: His solo shot came off of Seung Hwan Oh in the ninth inning, but only pulled the Cubs to within six runs. Contreras finished the afternoon 2-for-4. The hard-hitting backstop has had a terrific rookie campaign, slashing .270/.346/.473 with 11 homers and 32 RBI. His 11 home runs lead all rookie catchers in the National League.

  • Salvador Perez returns to Royals lineup

  • Stallings delivers walk-off single vs. Nats
    Jacob Stallings delivered a pinch-hit walk-off RBI single in the 11th inning Friday to lead the Pirates to a 6-5 victory over the Nationals.

    Advice: The Pirates tied things up against former closer Mark Melancon in the bottom of the ninth before Stallings played hero in the 11th. The winning rally was set up after the Pirates loaded the bases against Yusmiero Petit. Sean Rodriguez struck out swinging for the second out before Stallings ripped a single into left field to end it. It was a nice moment for the 26-year-old catcher, who was added back to the active roster earlier this month. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:34 pm
  • Ramos homers in loss to Pirates
    Wilson Ramos went 2-for-6 with a solo homer in Friday’s loss to the Pirates.

    Advice: Ramos has had a quiet September, but he still has a quality .304/.351/.496 batting line to go along with 22 homers and 80 RBI. The 29-year-old has his eyes on the postseason for now, but he’s poised to cash in big on the free agent market this winter. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:30 pm
  • Sanchez has two hits in loss to Jays
    Gary Sanchez went 2-for-4 with a double in Friday’s loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: The rest of the Yankees’ lineup went 1-for-26 on the night. Sanchez has only played in 45 games, but he has made an incredible impact by hitting .337/.413/.738 with 19 homers and 38 RBI. He has put himself squarely in the American League Rookie of the Year race. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:38 pm
  • Salvador Perez scratched from lineup
    Salvador Perez was scratched from the Royals' lineup Friday with a sore knee.

    Advice: Perez has been cleared to play, but the Royals have decided to play it safe and hold him out. He could be back in there Saturday. Drew Butera has replaced Perez behind the plate. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:00 pm
  • Mariners suspend Clevenger for rest of 2016
    Mariners suspended C Steve Clevenger without pay for the rest of the season.

  • Willson Contreras not starting Friday
    Willson Contreras is not in the Cubs' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Contreras has shown signs of wearing down late in the year as catchers often do, as he's batting just .214/.303/.429 in September. He's now been on the bench for four of the last five games, as the Cubs can afford to rest weary players. Miguel Montero is catching Friday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:39 am
  • Grandal hits grand slam as Dodgers roll COL
    Yasmani Grandal connected for a pair of home runs, including a grand slam, in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Rockies.

    Advice: Grandal went a perfect 4-for-4 at the dish and finished a triple shy of the cycle. He cracked a solo home run in the second inning, a throat-clearing for what was to come. With the Dodgers trailing 4-3 in the seventh inning, Grandal stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and proceeded to unload them in emphatic fashion, crushing a no-doubt homer off Boone Logan to boost the Dodgers to a 7-4 advantage. With this monster game under his belt, Grandal is now slashing .231/.335/.491 with 27 homers and 69 RBI over 373 at-bats. His previous career-high in home runs was 16, set a year ago. He has breezed by that mark this time around. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:18 pm
  • Cervelli clocks first homer of season in win
    Francisco Cervelli hit his first home run of the season in Thursday's loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: Better late than never? Cervelli smacked a career-high seven homers last season, but no such minor power surge has been in the cards for 2016. The veteran backstop finally broke through with a solo dinger against Chase Anderson in the fifth inning of Thursday's contest. For the season, Cervelli is hitting .263/.377/.317 with 12 doubles and 33 RBI over 312 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:11 pm
  • Realmuto hits 11th home run in loss to Braves
    J.T. Realmuto hit his 11th home run of the season in Thursday's loss to the Braves.

    Advice: The dinger, a solo blast, came against Braves starter Josh Collmenter in the seventh inning. It was his only hit on the evening. Despite having just three hits in his last 17 at-bats, the 25-year-old is enjoying a strong season at the dish overall, posting a .308/.349/.437 line with 46 RBI and 59 runs scored. He also leads all catchers with 11 stolen bases in 15 tries. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:01 pm
  • Yan Gomes (hand) throws to second base
    Yan Gomes (hand) made throws to second base on Thursday.

    Advice: Gomes was diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture in his right hand just last weekend. Indians manager Terry Francona said that there's a "one percent chance" the catcher could return this season, adding that if anyone can beat the odds it would probably be Gomes. Realistically, though, it's obviously the longest of long shots that we'll see him again in 2016. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:35 pm

  • Nats open extension talks with Wilson Ramos
    According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Nationals have initiated extension talks with Wilson Ramos.

    Advice: Heyman says the Nationals' first offer to Ramos "was somewhere in the range of $30 million over three years," which isn't going to come close to getting it done for a 29-year-old impending free agent catcher who's batting .303/.352/.491 with 21 homers and 79 RBI in 128 games this season. It's a light open market this winter, so Ramos figures to cash in big either with Washington or another club. Heyman hears there is currently a "lull in discussions" between Ramos and the Nats following that initial low-ball proposal. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:21 am
  • Susac (illness) whiffs as pinch-hitter Wed.
    Andrew Susac (illness) struck out as a pinch-hitter on Wednesday night against the Pirates.

    Advice: Susac had been on the shelf for a couple of days due to a minor illness. The 26-year-old backup catcher may get a start or two somewhere in the Brewers' final 10 games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:13 am
  • Perez goes 2-for-4 with a solo bomb vs Tribe
    Salvador Perez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBI in a loss to the Indians on Wednesday.

    Advice: He rapped an RBI single in the third inning. He drilled a tater off Indians' closer Cody Allen in the final frame to bring his club within one but they ended up falling short. Perez is batting .249 with 21 home runs and 61 RBI. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:03 pm
  • Gary Sanchez pounds two more HRs vs. TB
    Gary Sanchez blasted two home runs, tallied five total RBI, and scored three times to lead the Yankees over the Rays 11-5 on Wednesday.

    Advice: He went 3-for-4 with a walk and continues to make the major leagues look like a video game. Sanchez started off with a run-scoring single in the first inning, drilled a three-run bomb in the third, and then cranked a solo dong in the sixth. This was his fourth game in a row with a home run and he now has 19 home runs in 43 games since being called back up from Triple-A. The young catcher is batting .337/.410/.747 -- that is an incredible 1.157 OPS. He is only 23 years old. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:58 pm
  • McCann goes 4-for-5 versus Rays Wednesday
    Brian McCann went 4-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in a win over the Rays on Wednesday.

    Advice: All four hits were singles. The first one plated Jacoby Ellsbury in the first inning. McCann then came around to score on a Ronald Torreyes single. McCann is no longer the fantasy stud he was back when he played for the Braves, but he is still a good, solid producer in a year where catcher has been a barren wasteland for fantasy leaguers. He is batting .241/.333/.414 with 19 homers and 56 RBI in 120 games. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:42 pm

  • Gattis clocks pair of homers in win over A's
    Evan Gattis swatted a pair of home runs in Wednesday's 6-5 win over the A's.

    Advice: Gattis rocked a two-run home run in the sixth inning to bump the Astros to a 4-1 lead, then came back around to bash a solo shot in the eighth. For the season, the 30-year-old slugger is slashing .249/.318/.510 with 30 homers and 67 RBI over 418 at-bats. He has homered five times in his last 10 games and has already notched a career-high for long balls. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:11 pm

  • Bruce Maxwell hits RBI double in loss to HOU
    Bruce Maxwell went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Wednesday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Maxwell drew the A's to within 4-2 with his sixth inning RBI double, but despite several pushes over the later innings, the Athletics were unable to claw out from the deficit and ultimately fell by a 6-5 final. For his part, the 25-year-old Maxwell is hitting .265/.329/.382 with one homer and 12 RBI over 68 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:58 pm

  • Tom Murphy rips three-run homer vs. STL
    Tom Murphy ripped a three-run shot in the Rockies' pounding of the Cardinals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Murphy struck out in his first three at-bats, but he went deep to right-center off Cardinals reliever Jonathan Broxton in the Rockies' five-run seventh inning. The three-run blast put Colorado up 11-1, and that score would hold. Murphy has performed well as a September callup, slashing .310/.355/.828 with five home runs and 11 RBI in 12 games. He probably deserves regular at-bats over this final stretch. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:25 pm

  • Padres recall Austin Hedges from El Paso
    Padres recalled C Austin Hedges from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Hedges, a former top-25 prospect, batted .326/.353/.597 with 21 home runs and 82 RBI in 82 games this season at the Triple-A level. It's hard to get over how bad he looked with the Padres in 2015, but the 24-year-old catcher may be rounding into a nice player after another full year of minor league seasoning. He should get a few starts in San Diego down the stretch and he could battle for the starting job next spring. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:49 am
  • Yadier Molina getting the day off Wednesday
    Yadier Molina is getting the day off Wednesday.

    Advice: Carson Kelly will catch fellow rookie Luke Weaver in the afternoon series finale at Coors Field. Molina went 2-for-5 in Tuesday night's blowout win over the Rockies and is slashing .348/.384/.502 since the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:09 am
  • Pina (wife having baby) flied out Tuesday
    Manny Pina (wife having baby) flied out as a pinch-hitter on Tuesday night against the Pirates.

    Advice: Pina welcomed a baby girl into the world on Tuesday afternoon and then rushed to Milwaukee's Miller Park for the end of Tuesday night's game. That's some kind of dedication. The backup catcher is 14-for-51 (.275) with one home run in 25 games this season at the major league level. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:48 am
  • Maldonado swats eighth homer against Pirates
    Martin Maldonado went 2-for-4 with his eighth homer of the year in a loss to the Pirates on Tuesday.

    Advice: Maldonado connected with a Steven Brault pitch in the fourth inning, hitting his eighth homer in 70 games this year. The 30-year-old is slashing just .194/.320/.351 through Tuesday's game. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:06 pm

    Francisco Cervelli went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:01 pm
  • McCann hits three-run homer in win over Twins

The backstop now has 47 RBI and 27 runs scored with a forgettable .222/.274/.366 line in 98 games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:07 pm

  • Gary Sanchez homers again in Yanks' win
    Gary Sanchez delivered a go-ahead, three-run home run in the seventh inning of Tuesday's victory over the Rays.

    Advice: The Yanks didn't do much against starter Drew Smyly, but they had no trouble with Brad Boxberger, tagging him with four hits and four runs in the seventh. Brett Gardner provided the game-tying single but Sanchez had the big blow. It's the rookie catcher's third straight game with a home run. He also had a couple walks on the night. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:33 pm
  • Manny Pina (wife having baby) out Tuesday
    Manny Pina is away from the Brewers on Tuesday following the birth of his daughter.

    Advice: That explains the sudden callup of Josmil Pinto. Pina should be back on the Brewers' bench Wednesday or Thursday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:29 pm
  • Chris Stewart undergoes surgery on left knee
    Chris Stewart underwent arthroscopic surgery Tuesday on his left knee.

    Advice: The procedure comes with 6-8 weeks of rest and rehab. Stewart finished the 2016 season with a weak .214/.319/.286 batting line in 113 plate appearances. He is owed $1.4 million from the Pirates in 2017. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:09 pm

  • Brewers call up Josmil Pinto
    Brewers purchased the contract of C/1B Josmil Pinto from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Pinto batted .308/.362/.517 with 11 home runs and 51 RBI over 86 games in Triple-A this season. The 27-year-old will provide some depth behind the plate and at first base. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:10 pm
  • Grandal (elbow) returns to lineup
    Yasmani Grandal (elbow) went 0-for-2 with two strikes and a hit-by-pitch in his return to action Monday against the Giants.

  • Bruce Maxwell hits first career homer
    Bruce Maxwell hit his first big-league homer Monday against the Astros.

    Advice: Serving as Stephen Vogt's backup and in Josh Phegley's absence, Maxwell is hitting .270 in 63 at-bats since being called up on July 23. He's hoping to keep his gig next year, but that would probably take a trade of either Vogt or Phegley. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:08 pm

  • Gary Sanchez leaves the yard yet again Sunday
    Gary Sanchez blasted yet another home run on Sunday, though the Yankees still wound up on the losing end of the decision against the Red Sox.

    Advice: He also chipped in a pair of singles in the ballgame, finishing the night 3-for-5. His solo shot off of Drew Pomeranz in the third inning gave the Yankees an early 2-0 lead, but it would prove to be short-lived. He has been an absolute monster since joining the big league club, slashing an absurd .327/.393/.698 with 16 homers and 30 RBI in just 159 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:48 pm
  • Sandy Leon not in Red Sox lineup Sunday
    Sandy Leon is not in the Red Sox starting lineup for Sunday night's showdown against the Yankees.

  • Yasmani Grandal (elbow) to play vs. Giants
    Yasmani Grandal (elbow) is expected back in the lineup on Monday.

    Advice: Grandal is missing a second straight start with soreness in his right elbow, but his absence looks to be precautionary. Austin Barnes is at catcher Sunday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:30 am

    Advice: He smoked a two-run shot in the first inning, then bettered that with a three-run blast in the fifth inning. Murphy has played very well as a September call-up. He is batting .320/.370/.800 with four homers and eight RBI in 25 at-bats. He was hitting .327 with 19 homers at Triple-A before getting the call. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:33 pm

  • Grandal sitting out with elbow soreness
    Yasmani Grandal is dealing with soreness in his right elbow.

    Advice: That would explain why he isn't playing Saturday against the D'Backs. The Dodgers don't seem to be too worried about it. Carlos Ruiz will fill in behind the plate during his absence, though we're not expecting Grandal to miss much time. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:10 pm
  • Gary Sanchez goes deep again in loss to BoSox
    Gary Sanchez clubbed his 15th home run of the season on Saturday, but it wasn't enough to power the Yankees to victory over the Red Sox.

    Advice: His two-run blast off of David Price gave the Bombers an early 3-0 lead in the third inning, but it would be short-lived. It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the day. Sanchez is now hitting .318/.387/.682 with 15 homers and 29 RBI in only 154 at-bats with the Yankees. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:47 pm
  • Grandal getting the night off on Saturday
    Yasmani Grandal is not in the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

  • Yan Gomes (hand) will miss 6-8 weeks
    Indians manager Terry Francona said Saturday that Yan Gomes will miss 6-to-8 weeks with the non-displaced fracture in his right hand.

    Advice: That will surely end his season. The 29-year-old backstop finishes a miserable 2016 campaign hitting .165/.198/.313 with eight homers and 32 RBI in 262 plate appearances. The good news is that he should be recovered and fully healthy heading into spring training. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:13 am

    Yan Gomes has been diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture in his right hand.

    Advice: He'll visit a specialist later Friday before the next step is determined, but it's hard to imagine it won't end his season.

  • Yan Gomes to get hand MRI, return on hold
    Yan Gomes will undergo an MRI on his right hand.

    Advice: Gomes was struck in that hand in the fifth inning of what was supposed to be his final minor league rehab game Wednesday with Double-A Akron. Indians manager Terry Francona had announced earlier in the day that Gomes would be activated off the disabled list Friday for the start of a three-game series at home against the Tigers. That definitely won't happen now. Gomes initially landed on the DL in mid-July with an AC joint separation in his right shoulder and could now need another week or more.

    Indians manager Terry Francona said that Yan Gomes (shoulder) will be activated from the 15-day disabled list on Friday.

    Advice: Gomes is DHing for Double-A Akron as part of a rehab assignment on Wednesday. Barring a setback, he will return to the majors and serve as catcher when Corey Kluber takes the mound this Friday. The 29-year-old backstop was struggling to the tune of a .165/.198/.313 triple-slash in 249 at-bats prior to being sidelined by an AC joint separation of the right shoulder in mid-July.

    Wilson Ramos supplied the lone run in Wednesday's 1-0 win over the Mets, swatting a solo home run in the seventh inning.

    Advice: Ramos burned Fernando Salas for a long, loud solo bomb with one out in the bottom of the seventh. The ball traveled an estimated 408 feet. That was all the Nationals needed in the 1-0 victory. For the season, Ramos is now hitting .304/.354/.496 with 21 homers and 78 RBI over 450 at-bats. He has driven in five runs in his last three games. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:45 pm
