  • Arcia exits game with back tightness
    Oswaldo Arcia left Monday's game with tightness in his upper left back.

    Advice: Arcia tweaked his back on a big swing-and-miss in the sixth inning and was later removed for a pinch-hitter. The Twins will see how he feels Tuesday, but he might have to miss a day or two. Rotoworld.com

  • Morse (oblique) should be ready by Friday
    Michael Morse (oblique) should be ready to return by Friday.

    Advice: Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that Morse was "tentative" during batting practice Monday, so it will likely take him another couple of days to swing with full intensity. The 32-year-old has been sidelined since late August with a strained left oblique. Rotoworld.com

  • Venable (back) returns to Padres' lineup
    Will Venable (back) went 0-for-1 with a walk and two strikeouts Monday in his return to action against the Phillies.

    Advice: Venable hadn't started a game since last Wednesday due to a back strain. The 31-year-old owns a disappointing .221/.290/.317 batting line over 134 games this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Trumbo blasts a salami, knocks in five runs
    Mark Trumbo hit a grand slam to lead the Diamondbacks past the Giants 6-2 on Monday.

    Advice: He finished 2-for-5 with five RBI, adding an RBI single in the seventh. The big damage came in the third frame, when Trumbo swatted a Ryan Vogelsong offering over the right field wall to plate Wade Miley, Chris Owings and A.J. Pollock. Trumbo has driven in 10 runs over his last five games. A hot finish would give a nice superficial boost to his disappointing slash line (.239/.303/.389). Rotoworld.com

  • Miley tosses 7 innings of one-run ball in win
    Wade Miley held the Giants at bay on Monday, allowing only one run on seven hits across seven innings of a 6-2 win.

    Advice: Miley struck out four and didn't walk a batter. Miley entered play 0-4 in his previous seven outings, but toting a 2.86 ERA in his last six, so he must have been pretty pleased to receive six runs of support tonight. The left-hander had a shouting match with skipper Kirk Gibson in his last start against the Dodgers, but Miley indicated he was just blowing off steam from a less-than-stellar night. No frustration tonight in improving to 8-11 with a 4.17 ERA. Miley caps a two-week start by traveling to Coors Field on Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:43 pm
  • Vogelsong gives up 4 runs in loss to Snakes
    Ryan Vogelsong allowed four runs over 5 2/3 innings as the Giants dropped a 6-2 decision versus the Diamondbacks on Monday.

    Advice: Vogelsong didn't have his best stuff tonight, though that only manifested on the scoreboard on Mark Trumbo's grand slam. He walked four and allowed six hits. The right-hander came into tonight with a 1.38 ERA in his last two starts against the Diamondbacks, having received exactly zero runs of support in both games. San Francisco's offense couldn't get going tonight, either. Vogelsong (8-11, 3.98 ERA) will be in San Diego this weekend for a Sunday matinee against the Padres. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:42 pm
  • Solarte singles in win versus Phillies
    Yangervis Solarte went 1-for-4 in Monday's 1-0 win against the Phillies.

    Advice: Solarte is now riding a six-game hitting streak, having come into the contest with three consecutive multi-hit games. Across his time with the Yankees and Padres, Solarte is slashing .262 /.343/.376 with 10 homers. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:40 pm
  • Roberto Hernandez pulled in fourth
    Roberto Hernandez surrendered two runs in 3 2/3 innings before being removed from Monday's start against the Rockies.

    Advice: The Dodgers decided to give Hernandez one more try as a starter, but he certainly didn't do much with it. Perhaps he'll trade spots with Kevin Correia now. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:37 pm
  • Williams gives up an unearned run in loss
    Jerome Williams surrendered a mere unearned run, scattering three hits over 7 2/3 innings, in Monday's tough-luck 1-0 setback against the Padres.

    Advice: Williams struck out six and walked two. He picked an interesting night on which to put forth his best performance of the season, having served up nine runs over 10 innings in his last two starts. The right-hander had a 6.71 ERA between his work with the Astros and Rangers earlier this year, but he's turned things around with a 2.84 ERA since he joined the National League. Williams faces a familiar AL West foe when he squares off against the A's in Oakland on Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:31 pm
  • Wilin Rosario goes 3-for-4, homers
    Wilin Rosario went 3-for-4 and homered against the Dodgers on Monday.

    Advice: It's worth wondering what's in store for Rosario after his disappointing offensive season; despite all of his success in 2012 and 2013, the Rockies tried to sign Brian McCann last winter with the idea of moving Rosario out from behind the plate. There won't really be anywhere to move Rosario this winter, so he'll either remain a catcher or possibly get traded. It'd be a case of selling low for the Rockies, though. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:30 pm
  • John Danks goes six scoreless
    John Danks blanked the Royals for six innings, but was left with nothing to show for it Monday.

    Advice: Danks exited with a 3-0 lead, only to have it blown with one run in the seventh, one in the eighth and two in the ninth. As a result, Danks remains winless in his last nine starts. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Jake Petricka takes blown save, loss
    Jake Petricka took his fifth blown save and his fifth loss after giving up two runs in the ninth Monday against the Royals.

    Advice: Petricka came in with two outs in the eighth and bailed Zach Putnam out of a jam, but he gave up two doubles to tie the game in the ninth. The Royals went on to win on a little grounder up the middle that Alexei Ramirez couldn't handle. It was ruled an infield single that allowed the runner to score all of the way from second, so the run was earned, even though that seemed rather ridiculous. We would hope this doesn't cost Petricka additional save chances down the stretch. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:00 pm
  • Chad Qualls picks up save in return
    Chad Qualls notched a save Monday in his first appearance since Sept. 6, pitching a scoreless ninth in the Astros' 3-1 win over the Indians.

    Advice: The Astros went right back to Qualls in the closer's role tonight, and he retired three of the four batters he faced in his return from a hip problem. Since he needed just 10 pitches, he could get the call again in a save chance on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:41 pm
  • Justin Bour reaches three times in start
    Justin Bour got the nod over Garrett Jones on Monday and went 2-for-3 with a walk in the Marlins' 6-5 win over the Mets.

    Advice: Bour is 6-for-15 with a couple of walks since being called up on Sept. 2. The Marlins should consider making him their first baseman against right-handers the rest of the way, though since Jones is signed for another year, they probably won't. They could play both, using Jones in right field, but that would hurt the outfield defense. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:18 pm
  • Morse (oblique) still a day or two away
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that Michael Morse (oblique) was "tentative" while taking batting practice Monday.

    Advice: He did add that Morse started to loosen up as the session went along, but the outfielder is still at least another day or two away from returning. He's been out since late August due to a strained left oblique. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:51 pm
  • Peralta (back) resumes baseball activities
    David Peralta (back) resumed all baseball activities Monday.

    Advice: Peralta could return to the lineup during the team's September 18-24 road trip. The rookie outfielder has been sidelined with back discomfort since September 5. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:10 pm
  • Qualls (hip) available to pitch Monday
    Chad Qualls (hip) is available to pitch Monday.

    Advice: Qualls hasn't pitched since September 6 due to an issue with his right hip. It's unlikely that the Astros will trust him with save chances right away, so hang on to Josh Fields and Tony Sipp in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:21 pm
  • Venable (back) used as pinch-hitter Sunday
    Will Venable (back) was used as a pinch-runner in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Venable remained absent from the starting lineup with a back strain. It's a good sign that he felt well enough to run and he's likely to return fully this week. The outfielder has registered a disappointing .222/.287/.318 batting line in 132 games this season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 5:49 am
  • Will Venable returned to action on Sunday September 14. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:13 am
  • Solarte has two hits, two runs in loss to ARI
    Yangervis Solarte went 2-for-5 with two runs scored in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Solarte turned in his third straight multi-hit game, scoring runs in the third and ninth innings. He's got hits in six of his last seven games, including those four two-hit efforts, to raise his average to .274 since joining the Padres. Solarte is batting .262/.344/.377 overall this year. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 7:25 pm
  • Morse to take BP Monday or Tuesday
    Michael Morse (oblique) won't take batting practice until Monday or Tuesday.

    Advice: Morse had been swinging, but only at about 50 percent. He should return to the lineup shortly if he can swing at full effort Monday or Tuesday, but there are certainly no guarantees that will happen. Morse has yet to play this month due to a strained left oblique. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 8:15 am
  • Chad Qualls (hip) reports improvement
    Chad Qualls (hip) said Saturday that he's feeling better.

    Advice: Qualls is dealing with an issue in his right hip that he thinks might be nerve-related. He's not sure when (or if) he'll be cleared to return to action, but it does appear a bit of progress is being made. The Astros have used Josh Fields and Tony Sipp in the ninth inning with Qualls out. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 7:41 am
  • Trumbo goes 3-for-5, drives in three vs. Pads
    Mark Trumbo finished 3-for-5 with three RBI as the Diamondbacks beat the Padres 10-4 on Saturday.

    Advice: Trumbo smacked a two-run single in the first inning and later scored on a wild pitch. He then plated Chris Owings on a fielder's choice in the second and doubled in the fifth before singling and scoring again in the eighth. Trumbo seems to be finding a groove now after struggling initially in his return from a fractured foot. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:38 pm
  • David Peralta MRI shows no structural damage
    An MRI taken Saturday on David Peralta's ailing back showed no major structural damage.

    Advice: Peralta has been sidelined with back discomfort since September 5. He is expected to start baseball activities by Monday and should return to action late next week. The outfielder is batting .293/.326/.461 this year for the Diamondbacks. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:45 pm
  • Will Venable (back) remains out of the lineup
    Will Venable (back) remains out of the Padres' lineup Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Venable has been sidelined with a back strain since Wednesday. He holds a poor batting line of .222/.287/.318 with six home runs and 27 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 2:20 pm
  • Chad Qualls could have nerve issue in hip
    Chad Qualls is dealing with an issue in his right hip that he thinks might be nerve-related.

    Advice: The ailment was originally described as a glute problem, but it appears it's more in his hip. "I don't know if it's just tight hip or something like that that's putting pressure on kind of a nerve back there, get like just a warm feeling - just in like a six-inch feeling just down kind of the side of my leg. When I sit down or laid down it wouldn't hurt, and then if I walk around it gets irritated." Qualls is receiving treatment and is being considered day-to-day, but there's no guarantee that he makes it back this season. Josh Fields and Tony Sipp have picked up saves for the Astros over the last week and both need to be owned in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 7:44 am
  • Morse (oblique) likely out this weekend
    Michael Morse (oblique) is not expected to play this weekend.

    Advice: He's still swinging the bat at only 50 percent. Morse is only 10 days removed from straining his oblique, so his continued absence isn't a surprise even though the Giants had expressed optimism that he could be back by now. He's hit .280/.338/.477 with 16 homers and 61 RBI over 130 games this season. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 4:39 pm
  • Jake Petricka records 13th save
    Jake Petricka pitched a scoreless ninth for his 13th save Thursday against the A's.

    Advice: Petricka also earned a save last night after a long layoff that includes a few days away to attend the birth of his child. There's a good chance he'll get Friday off now, so perhaps Zach Putnam will pick up a save opp. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 2:06 pm
  • David Peralta (back) aims to return Monday
    David Peralta (back) is now aiming to return to the Diamondbacks' starting lineup on Monday.

    Advice: Peralta had been hoping to get in there Friday, but his back is still giving him trouble. He'll undergo a precautionary MRI to make sure there's nothing seriously wrong. If that turns up negative, the 27-year-old outfielder should be cleared to return after the weekend. Peralta has faded in the second half but still owns a decent .293/.326/.461 overall batting line on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 12:16 pm
  • Vogelsong shuts out Snakes for 6 2/3 frames
    Ryan Vogelsong worked 6 2/3 shutout innings, allowing two hits, in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

    Advice: Vogelsong wasn't perfect, of course, striking out only two and walking five. He was yanked before reaching seven innings after cracking 100 pitches. Vogelsong appeared to turn the corner last month, going 3-1 with a 2.58 ERA in six starts, but was then eviscerated for a career-high eight runs (on four homers) over five innings at Colorado in his first start of September. Hopefully that start was a one-outing aberration. Vogelsong has a rematch against the Diamondbacks next week. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:44 pm
  • Will Venable diagnosed with back strain
    Will Venable was diagnosed with a back strain.

    Advice: Venable left Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers after five innings and Padres manager Bud Black told reporters after the game that he will "probably be out a couple days." Venable has been a major disappointment this season, batting just .222/.287/.318 with six home runs and nine stolen bases in 132 games. He had 22 homers and 22 steals in 2013. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:34 pm
  • Jake Petricka perfect for 12th save
    Jake Petricka pitched a perfect ninth for his 12th save as the White Sox beat the A's 2-1 on Wednesday.

    Advice: The White Sox scored twice in the bottom of the eighth to take an unexpected lead. Petricka, who hadn't worked since Sept. 2 after missing the weekend to be with his wife and newborn, was probably going to pitch the ninth either way. He's not assured every remaining save chance for the White Sox, but he remains the best bet in their pen. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:52 pm
  • Venable leaves game with undisclosed injury
    Will Venable left Wednesday's game against the Dodgers with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: It's unclear what happened to the outfielder, but Cameron Maybin replaced him in center field to start the bottom of the fifth inning. The Padres should give an update on his status shortly. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:40 pm
  • 37-pitch first inning dooms Williams in loss
    Jerome Williams lost his first game since joining the Phillies, surrendering four runs over five innings against the Pirates on Wednesday.

    Advice: Williams needed 37 pitches to get out of the first inning after the Pirates plated two runs on a Russell Martin single. To Williams' credit, he settled down until the fifth, when the Pirates pushed across two more runs. All in all, the right-hander gave up seven hits and a walk while striking out a season-high eight. Williams has been solid since joining the Phillies, but his last two starts have been mediocre. He owns a 3.44 ERA and a 26/13 K/BB ratio in red pinstripes. The Padres await him in his next start, which will occur in San Diego on Monday. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:35 pm
  • Chad Qualls dealing with glute injury
    Chad Qualls was unavailable to pitch Tuesday due to a right glute issue.

    Advice: It explains why Josh Fields was used in the ninth inning and converted his second straight save. Qualls is being listed as day-to-day, so it shouldn't be a long-term issue. Still, the veteran reliever has also struggled lately, so picking up Fields just in case might not be a bad idea. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:26 pm
  • Hernandez yields 2 ER over 3 frames to loss
    Roberto Hernandez coughed up five runs -- two earned -- over three innings Tuesday in a loss to the Padres.

    Advice: He gave up a career-high four home runs in his last outing -- last week against the Nationals -- and coughed up another tonight. The right-hander toted a 8.78 ERA across three career starts at Dodger Stadium to the mound this evening, and then pitched so poorly that Don Mattingly refused to send him out for the fourth inning. Hernandez (8-11, 4.04 ERA) punches the clock next week on Blake Street when he tangles with the Rockies in Denver. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:26 pm
  • Miley only finishes 2 innings in dud vs. LAD
    Wade Miley made it through just two innings, allowing three runs on four walks and five hits, in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: This epic dud came out of nowhere, and comes at a most inopportune time with fantasy playoffs beginning in head-to-head formats. Miley was 0-2 with a 1.69 ERA in his last four starts, but he received a grand total of only three runs during that time. He didn't receive any support this time either -- Arizona lost 5-1 -- but Miley wouldn't have been around for a decision even if his teammates had decided to lug their lumber to the yard. The left-hander hosts San Francisco this weekend looking to get back on track. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:49 pm
  • Danks surrenders four runs in loss to A's
    John Danks gave up four runs -- two earned -- over six innings in a loss to the Athletics on Tuesday.

    Advice: It was a prototypical start for the left-hander -- seven hits, a walk, and just three strikeouts. Also prototypical was the decision, as Danks has now lost five straight decisions dating back to July. Danks will take a 9-11 record and 5.05 ERA into Sunday's matchup with the Twins. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:01 pm
  • Arcia's 2-run HR the difference as Twins win
    Oswaldo Arcia's fourth-inning two-run home run proved to be the difference as the Twins topped the Indians on Tuesday.

    Advice: Arcia, who finished 2-for-4 on the evening, slugged a 415-foot shot to right-center in the fourth inning off of Trevor Bauer, capping off a four-run frame. The Indians finished with three runs. Arcia is lackluster in the average and on-base departments, but will show up every now and then to go yard. He's slashing .220/.293/.439 with 16 home runs and 48 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:23 pm
  • David Peralta (back) hopes to return Friday
    David Peralta (back) is hoping to return to the lineup Friday.

    Advice: He'll have missed a week of action by that time due to a back ailment. Peralta is sporting a .293/.326/.461 batting line for Arizona this season. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:00 pm
  • Morse (oblique) out until this weekend
    Michael Morse (oblique) will be sidelined at least until this weekend.

    Advice: Morse received a cortisone shot for his strained left oblique last week but remains sore. The slugger has yet to play this month due to the ailment. He's sporting a .280/.338/.477 batting line with 16 homers and 61 RBI over 130 games this season. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 4:57 pm
  • Michael Morse (oblique) out again Tuesday
    Michael Morse (oblique) remained out of the Giants' lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: The club was hoping Morse would be ready Tuesday after missing a week of action, but obviously he's not. He remains day-to-day. Gregor Blanco is in left field again Tuesday in Morse's place. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 3:35 pm
  • Hammel fans seven in no-decision vs. Astros
    Jason Hammel struck out seven while allowing two runs over 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Astros on Sunday.

    Advice: Hammel held the Astros scoreless until the seventh, when they plated both their runs against the right-hander. He gave up five hits and a walk on the day. It was another good start for Hammel after a rough beginning with the A's. He's now got a 4.70 ERA in the American League, and he'll look to improve on those numbers Friday at the Mariners. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 7, 6:51 pm
  • David Peralta (back) hopes to play Tuesday
    The Diamondbacks hope David Peralta (back) can return to the lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Peralta has missed the last couple games with a back injury. He's surprised with a .293/.326/.461 batting line for Arizona this season. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 7, 12:40 pm
  • Wilin Rosario activated from disabled list
    Rockies activated C Wilin Rosario from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Rosario missed the last two weeks of action with left wrist inflammation. Michael McKenry played well while Rosario was out, but Rosario should return to playing pretty much every day. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 7, 10:28 am
  • Chad Qualls blows sixth save of the season
    Chad Qualls blew his sixth save of the season Saturday in the Astros' loss to the A's.

    Advice: And it was his fifth blown save of the year against Oakland. Qualls was called on in the bottom of the ninth with runners at first and third and the Astros leading by two. He gave up a game-tying double to Josh Reddick and then Jed Lowrie hit a walkoff single. Yikes. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 6, 3:56 pm
  • Jake Petricka out this weekend due to baby
    Jake Petricka will not be available this weekend against the Indians, as he just welcomed a new child.

    Advice: Zach Putnam will presumably handle save opportunities in Petricka's place. Petricka has a cool 2.73 ERA with 11 saves on the season for the White Sox. He should be back in the Chicago bullpen Monday against the Athletics. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 6, 2:21 pm
  • Williams roughed up in five innings vs Nats
    Jerome Williams surrendered five runs (four earned) in five innings in Friday's 9-8 win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Williams did not factor into the decision. He served up a two-run home run to Adam LaRoche in the first inning and was off to the run-allowing races after that. He proceeded to give up a sacrifice fly in the fourth and a two-run double to Anthony Rendon in the fifth. Williams struck out three and walked two to go with the nine hits he allowed. Despite the rough outing, he still holds an ERA of 2.84 with the Phillies, though his overall ERA of 5.34 looks considerably less shiny. Rotoworld.com
