  • Angels recall Cory Rasmus from AAA level
    Angels recalled RHP Cory Rasmus from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Rasmus struck out six batters over three scoreless innings in a spot start last Saturday against the A's. He could lead some bullpen games for the Angels down the stretch but probably won't be a reliable fantasy streamer.

    Yankees released RHP Matt Daley.

  • Yankees call up Rich Hill from Triple-A
    Yankees purchased the contract of LHP Rich Hill from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Today, 12:35 pm
  • Cardinals activate Jason Motte from the DL
    Cardinals activated RHP Jason Motte from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Motte missed a month with a lower back sprain. His velocity has not returned in his first year back from Tommy John surgery and he probably won't pitch in high-leverage situations this month for St. Louis.
    Today, 12:27 pm

  • White Sox recall RHP Carroll from Triple-A
    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. The 29-year-old owns a 5.07 ERA over 16 starts and six relief appearances in the majors this year and can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
    Today, 11:52 am
  • Rangers call up Kirkman from Triple-A
    Rangers purchased the contract of LHP Michael Kirkman from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Kirkman was booted off the Rangers' 40-man roster at the end of March, but he's back after posting a 4.47 ERA with 62 strikeouts and 29 walks over 54 1/3 innings this season in Triple-A. He figures to pitch in middle relief.
    Today, 11:25 am
  • Rangers recall RHP Tepesch from minors
    Rangers recalled RHP Nick Tepesch from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Tepesch was optioned to the minors over the weekend, but he's back with the big club now that rosters have expanded. The 25-year-old holds a mediocre 4.44 ERA and 47/34 K/BB ratio over 97 1/3 innings with the Rangers this season.
    Today, 11:22 am
  • Cubs recall RHP Straily from Triple-A
    Cubs recalled RHP Dan Straily from Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: Straily made his Cubs' debut in a spot-start last month and he's back now that rosters have expanded. There's no clear fit for him in the rotation right now, so he'll likely pitch in long relief.
    Today, 10:58 am

    Advice: Crow was sent down last week, but he wasn't expected to remain in the minors for long. The 27-year-old owns a 3.86 ERA and 29/20 K/BB ratio over 51 1/3 innings this season.

    Today, 10:31 am
  • Brewers release RHP Hiram Burgos

  • Kris Medlen (elbow) begins throwing
    Kris Medlen (elbow) threw Tuesday for the first time since Tommy John surgery.

    Advice: Medlen is a little under six months removed from Tommy John surgery, so he's recovering according to schedule. The hope is that he'll be ready to join the Braves' rotation in the early part of 2015.

    Today, 6:39 am
  • 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.
    Yesterday, 8:22 am
  • Cory Rasmus optioned to Triple-A
    Angels optioned RHP Cory Rasmus to Triple-A Salt Lake.

  • Angels use eight pitchers in shutout of OAK
    Cory Rasmus struck out six batters over three scoreless innings Saturday in a spot start against the A's.

    Advice: And the Angels went on to win 2-0, with eight different pitchers combining on the shutout. Rasmus gave up only one hit and did not issue a walk over the first three frames, and the A's managed just two hits against the Anaheim bullpen. The Angels are now four games up on Oakland in the American League West standings.

  • Red Sox send Anthony Ranaudo to Greenville
    Red Sox optioned RHP Anthony Ranaudo to Low-A Greenville.

  • 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.
    Saturday, 7:30 am
  • 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.
    Friday, 8:41 pm
  • Ranaudo defeats Rays to improve to 3-0
    Anthony Ranaudo improved to 3-0 on Friday, limiting the Rays to three runs on five hits over his six innings of work.

    Advice: Ranaudo was staked to an early eight-run lead in this one, and cruised to an easy win. He issued three walks and walked four on the evening, with most of the damage against him coming on a two-run homer by Brandon Guyer in the fifth inning. He'll carry a 4.50 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 7/8 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's start against the Yankees in New York.
    Friday, 8:09 pm
  • Jason Motte (back) throws off mound

    Friday, 2:53 pm
  • Anthony Ranaudo recalled from Triple-A
    Red Sox recalled RHP Anthony Ranaudo from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: He'll make his third major league start on Friday against the Rays. Ranaudo has allowed six runs while posting a 3/5 K/BB ratio over 12 innings in his first two outings with the big club. He could remain in the rotation for the rest of the season if he pitches well.
    Friday, 1:09 pm
  • Rich Hill designated for assignment
    Yankees designated LHP Rich Hill for assignment.

    Advice: He was made expendable after the Yankees acquired Josh Outman. Hill didn't allow any runs over six appearances for the Yanks. He should catch on elsewhere quickly.
    Friday, 12:34 pm
  • Tepesch gets into fifth inning trouble vs HOU
    Nick Tepesch was solid through four innings, but ran into trouble in the fifth inning and ultimately took a no-decision as the Rangers fell 4-2 to the Astros on Thursday.

    Advice: Tepesch got the first out of the fifth but allowed a single and a walk before he was relieved by Roman Mendez after throwing 89 pitches. Mendez loaded the bases after allowing a single, then served up a go-ahead grand slam to Jason Castro, allowing both of Tepesch's runners to score. Overall, Tepesch gave up the two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out one batter. He'll take a 4.44 ERA, a 1.36 WHIP, and a 47/34 K/BB ratio into Tuesday's start against the Royals in Kansas City.
    Thursday, 8:29 pm
  • Angels outright LaBlanc to Triple-A

  • Ranaudo to start for Sox on Friday vs. Rays
    Anthony Ranaudo is scheduled to start for the Red Sox on Friday night against the Rays.

    Advice: Ranaudo allowed four earned runs over six innings earlier this month in a spot start against the Reds and is a risky -- but not terrible -- fantasy play versus Tampa Bay. The 24-year-old right-hander has registered a 2.61 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 111/54 K/BB ratio in 138 innings (24 starts) this season for Triple-A Pawtucket.
    Thursday, 9:04 am
  • Scioscia: Rasmus an option to start Saturday
    Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Cory Rasmus is an option to start on Saturday.

    Advice: Rasmus has a 2.68 ERA as the Angels' long reliever, but Rasmus hasn't started a game, majors or minors, since 2011. An outside acquisition is also an option to fill the rotation spot vacated by Garrett Richards.

  • Aaron Crow optioned to Triple-A
    Royals optioned RHP Aaron Crow to Triple-A Omaha.

    Wednesday, 12:31 pm
  • Darin Downs beginning rehab assignment
    Darin Downs (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment at Double-A Corpus Christi on Friday.

    Advice: Downs was cleared for game action after throwing a bullpen session Tuesday with no issues. He'll be activated from the DL next week if all goes well.
    Tuesday, 8:14 pm
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Downs (oblique) to throw bullpen Tuesday
    Darin Downs (oblique) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Tuesday.

    Advice: Downs landed on the disabled list earlier this month with a right oblique strain, but he's hoping to begin a minor league rehab assignment soon. Look for him to rejoin the Astros in early September if all goes well.
    Aug 25, 2:07 pm
  • Bobby LaFromboise claimed by Pirates
    Pirates claimed LHP Bobby LaFromboise off waivers from the Padres; optioned him to Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: LaFromboise has put up a 4.75 ERA and 45/21 K/BB ratio over 53 Triple-A innings this season. He's merely a depth add for the Pirates.
    Aug 24, 12:16 pm
  • Mike Adams ready for rehab assignment
    Mike Adams (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.

    Advice: It's not clear how many rehab appearances he'll need, but Adams will be activated at some point in September if all goes well. He's has been on the disabled list since June 7 with right rotator cuff inflammation and Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg admitted being surprised that the reliever might rejoin the bullpen at some point. "In some regards," Sandberg said. "He was in Florida doing his thing and doing his throwing program, and he progressed quickly in the last week or so."
    Aug 24, 7:08 am
  • Cam Bedrosian optioned to Triple-A
    Angels optioned RHP Cam Bedrosian to Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Bedrosian holds a 7.71 ERA over 11 relief appearances with the big club this season. He'll return next week when rosters expand.
    Aug 24, 5:49 am
  • Tepesch allows six runs in loss to Royals
    Nick Tepesch yielded six earned runs in 6 1/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Alex Gordon hit a solo shot in the top of the first inning and then Tepesch fell completely part in a three-walk, three-run fifth. He is now 4-8 with a 4.45 ERA.
    Aug 23, 8:05 pm
  • 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.
