  • Hernan Perez goes 3-for-3
    Hernan Perez went 3-for-3 with a triple and two RBI as the Brewers topped the Pirates 5-3 on Thursday.

    Advice: Perez is hitting .281 in 160 at-bats for the Brewers, though that comes with just three walks (three!) and one homer. Of course, this is a guy who would have spent all year in Triple-A with the Tigers had he not run out of options as a 24-year-old. The Brewers had room to give him a shot, and while he shouldn't be the future at third base for the club, he will give them an alternative at the middle-infield spots next year. 38 minutes ago
    W, 5-3 vs ^ Pit
  • Francisco Liriano takes first loss since June
    Francisco Liriano gave up four runs in five innings to the Brewers on Thursday to lose for the first time since June 20.

    Advice: The Pirates had won each of Liriano's last 11 starts, but the offense couldn't pick him up tonight. He's lucky he only gave up four runs, considering that he allowed seven hits and five walks. 44 minutes ago
  • Ryan Zimmerman goes 3-for-3 in blowout
    Ryan Zimmerman went 3-for-3 with two doubles and four RBI as the Nationals crushed the Braves 15-1 on Thursday.

    Advice: Zimmerman has four doubles and four homers in his last four games. His OPS stood at .611 when he came off the disabled list on July 28. He had boosted that to .706 by June 30, but now these last four days have been good enough to push him all of the way up to .776. 54 minutes ago
    W, 15-1 vs ^ Atl
  • Jordan Zimmermann picks up 12th win
    Jordan Zimmermann picked up his 12th win after allowing one run over six innings Thursday against the Braves.

    Advice: Zimmerman just had to figure out how to keep his concentration and keep his arm loose while the Nationals racked up 14 runs over the first six innings. They've now scored 44 runs in his last four starts, all of which were wins. They totaled seven in his previous four starts, all of which were losses (three credited to Zimmerman). 57 minutes ago
  • Matt Wisler blasted for seven runs
    Matt Wisler was torched for seven runs in 1 2/3 innings by the Nationals on Thursday.

    Advice: One wonders how much longer the Braves will keep running Wisler out there. This is the third time in seven starts that he's allowed seven runs, and his ERA has jumped from 3.10 to 5.97 since the All-Star break. If he's not shut down completely, the Braves could just send him to the pen. 59 minutes ago
  • Bryce Harper scores four times
    For the second time in three weeks, Bryce Harper scored four times without collecting a hit Thursday against the Braves.

    Advice: This kind of thing doesn't happen often. In fact, Harper has just the 27th and 28th such games since 1914. The last person to do it other than Harper was Freddie Freeman on June 28, 2014. Harper joins Jim Gilliam and Joe Morgan as the only players since 1914 to do it twice. Harper got there by walking all four times he was up. He would have gotten two more plate appearances had he not been removed for a pinch-hitter. Today, 7:54 pm
  • Harvey to join Mets in MIA on Friday
    Matt Harvey (dehydration) will rejoin the Mets in Miami on Friday.

    Advice: Harvey didn't fly with the team to Miami after suffering from dehydration at the end of his outing Wednesday against the Phillies, but it's not a major concern. He's expected to be good to go for his upcoming start against the Nationals early next week. Today, 2:11 pm
  • Gibson fires quality start vs White Sox
    Kyle Gibson turned in a quality start in Thursday afternoon's no-decision against the White Sox, yielding three runs on five hits over six innings.

    Advice: Gibson struck out four without walking a batter in the contest. Solitary runs scored in the first, fourth and sixth innings. Gibson's struggled with putting runners on base in previous starts, but he's mostly been able to limit the amount touching the plate. He'll carry a 3.84 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 115/55 K/BB ratio (across 164 innings) into a tough road showdown with the division-leading Royals next time he toes the rubber. Today, 1:40 pm
    L, 6-4 vs ^ CWS
  • Blanks to have surgery on both Achilles
    Kyle Blanks will undergo season-ending surgery on both Achilles on Friday in Dallas.

    Advice: Blanks has been bothered by Achilles issues for the past couple of seasons now. He attempted to make it back late last week by going out on a minor league rehab assignment, but apparently the pain is too much. The 28-year-old has appeared in just 44 games at the major league level dating back to the start of 2014. Today, 1:19 pm
    60-Day DL
  • Harper (glute) in Nationals' lineup Thursday
    Bryce Harper (glute) is in the Nationals' starting lineup on Thursday night against the Braves.

    Advice: Harper made an early exit from Wednesday's win over the Cardinals with tightness in his left glute. But he looked fine for the four innings he played on Wednesday night and is back in action Thursday for the start of a four-game weekend set against the Braves. It's a very important series for the Nats, who need to make up ground in the NL East quickly. Today, 12:59 pm
  • Odor still feeling discomfort in right hand
    Rougned Odor acknowledged Wednesday that he's still experiencing discomfort in his right hand.

    Advice: Odor cracked the fingernail on his right middle finger last Tuesday and is having trouble on some throws, but he expects to play through the injury. "I feel good at the plate," Odor said. "Sometimes I feel it but not all the time. Sometimes I hit my finger on the other hand and I feel it. But not when I hit the ball." Today, 11:39 am
  • Matt Harvey (dehydration) to make next start
    Matt Harvey (dehydration) is expected to be fine.

    Advice: Harvey was not on the Mets' team flight to Miami after suffering from dehydration at the end of his outing Wednesday against the Phillies, but he should be good to take his next turn in the rotation in Washington, D.C. Harvey has a stellar 2.60 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 158/34 K/BB ratio in 166 1/3 innings this season for New York. Today, 10:21 am
  • Forsythe (groin) goes 3-for-3 in return Wed.
    Logan Forsythe (groin) finished 3-for-3 with two doubles and two walks Wednesday versus the Orioles.

    Advice: Forsythe was pulled early on Tuesday with discomfort in his left groin, but it was clearly nothing major. The versatile 28-year-old continues to enjoy a breakout season with Tampa Bay, now boasting a .291/.367/.456 slash line with 15 home runs, 27 doubles, and 53 RBI in 130 games. Today, 5:58 am
  • Upton collects a pair of hits in loss to TEX
    Justin Upton went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in a 10-inning, 4-3 loss to the Rangers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Upton has been all over the place this season, posting OPS numbers of .842 in April, .964 in May, .608 in June, .552 in July and .923 in August. Here's to hoping he carries last month into September. Batting .253, Upton is on pace for 29 homers and 88 RBI. Yesterday, 11:04 pm
  • Hamels allows 3 runs in no-decision to Friars
    Cole Hamels gave up three runs on eight hits in seven innings in a no-decision Wednesday versus the Padres.

    Advice: He struck out eight and walked one, no surprise given his long-standing domination of the Padres, against whom he entered 6-0 with a 1.24 ERA over his last eight starts. Hamels struggled in his first two starts for the Rangers, but he's reverted to his old form since then and Texas has won his past four trips out. He'll take a 3.70 ERA and 1.22 WHIP into a nice matchup in Seattle on Tuesday. Yesterday, 10:59 pm
  • Tom Wilhelmsen gets eighth save
    Tom Wilhelmsen got a five-out save Wednesday against the Astros.

    Advice: Wilhelmsen came into a 5-3 game in the eighth and then stayed in after the Mariners made it 8-3 in the top of the ninth. Thanks to the Mariners' recent run, he's managed to notch six saves in the last 11 days. Yesterday, 9:29 pm
  • Ryan Zimmerman homers twice in win
    Ryan Zimmerman hit two solo homers and doubled in a third run to lead the Nationals to a 4-3 win over the Cardinals on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Cardinals could have walked Zimmerman after Matt den Dekker sacrificed Anthony Rendon to second in the eighth, but they opted not to and he made them pay with the double that gave the Nationals the lead. He's up to 16 homers on the year, 11 of which have come in 35 games since he came off the DL in late July. Yesterday, 9:22 pm
    W, 15-1 vs ^ Atl
  • Brandon Moss goes 3-for-5, homers
    Brandon Moss went 3-for-5 with a homer Wednesday versus the Nationals.

    Advice: Moss's homer tonight wasn't as dramatic as Tuesday's walk-off bomb, but it was another great game for him. He has four homers during his current seven-game hitting streak. It looks like he could be a nice asset in mixed leagues the rest of the way. Yesterday, 9:15 pm
  • Harvey dehydrated after start against Phils
    Matt Harvey was dehydrated and "feeling a little weak" after Wednesday's start against the Phillies.

    Advice: Harvey gave up four runs over 6 1/3 innings in the win, but it wasn't the most dominant he's been and officials told reporters he was feeling weak during the outing. It was unclear whether Harvey was going to travel with the Mets to Miami Wednesday night or whether he would stay behind. It shouldn't be a huge issue going forward, but it's something to monitor, especially with the Mets wanting to give the right-hander a break sometime in September. Yesterday, 7:52 pm
  • Harvey gives up four runs but earns 12th win
    Matt Harvey gave up four runs in 6 1/3 innings but picked up the win on Wednesday facing the Phillies.

    Advice: The Mets staked Harvey to a 6-0 lead after three innings, so he had plenty of breathing room. the Phillies rallied for three runs in the fifth inning, and Darnell Sweeney homered with one out in the seventh. Overall, the right-hander gave up nine hits and a walk while striking out nine. It was the first time Harvey gave up more than one run in a start since July 25. He now has a 2.60 ERA with a 1.01 WHIP and a 158/34 K/BB ratio over 166 1/3 innings. Harvey matches up with the Nationals in a road start next. Yesterday, 7:14 pm
  • Harper exits game with left glute tightness
    Bryce Harper left Wednesday's game with left glute tightness.

    Advice: Harper didn't show any noticeable signs of injury before being removed. His outlook should be clearer in the coming day or two. Yesterday, 6:58 pm
  • Forsythe (groin) in Rays' lineup Wednesday
    Logan Forsythe (groin) is in the Rays' starting lineup on Wednesday against the Orioles.

    Advice: Forsythe made an early exit from Tuesday night's game after experiencing tightness in his left groin, but he felt fine taking grounders during pregame festivities on Wednesday. He'll bat fifth and start at second base. Yesterday, 2:56 pm
  • Forsythe (groin) could miss next two games
    Logan Forsythe (groin) could miss the next two games.

    Advice: Forsythe made an early exit Tuesday night against the Orioles after experiencing tightness in his left groin. He's scheduled to field grounders Wednesday during batting practice but won't push it too hard. Yesterday, 1:34 pm
  • Wilhelmsen stifles Astros for seventh save
    Tom Wilhelmsen threw a perfect ninth inning against the Astros on Tuesday to earn his seventh save.

    Advice: Wilhelmsen struck out one in the scoreless inning of work. Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon's vote of confidence last week wasn't terribly confident, but Wilhelmsen has done nothing to suggest he isn't capable of handling the job. The big righty is now 7-for-7 in save chances with a 3.60 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 48/24 K/BB ratio in 50 innings this year. Tuesday, 10:07 pm
  • Moss clubs three-run walk-off homer vs. Nats
    Brandon Moss hit a three-run, walk-off home run as the Cardinals came back to beat the Nationals 8-5 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Moss finished 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored, but it was the homer off Casey Janssen with two outs in the ninth inning that was the difference. It was the third homer in the last six games for Moss, who is finally starting to show why the Cardinals dealt for him at the trade deadline. He's still hitting just .220/.301/.413 with 18 homers and 57 RBI overall, but Moss is capable of continuing his recent power surge through the final few weeks of the season. Tuesday, 9:53 pm
  • Logan Forsythe exits with groin injury
    Logan Forsythe exited Tuesday's game versus the Orioles with left groin tightness.

    Advice: The Rays have indicated that his removal was precautionary. They're listing him as day-to-day but he would figure to miss at least a game or two. Tuesday, 6:15 pm
  • Zimmerman's 4 RBI not enough for the Nats
    Ryan Zimmerman went 3-for-4 with an RBI double and a three-run home run, but the Nationals were beaten by the Cardinals on Monday.

    Advice: Zimmerman gave the Nationals a 1-0 lead in the first inning with an RBI double, then made it 5-3 in the seventh with a three-run home run off of Kevin Siegrist. The first baseman has been on a tear since August 23, batting .345 (10-for-29) with four home runs and 15 RBI. It's an improvement on an otherwise bland .231/.298/.428 triple-slash line with 13 home runs and 63 RBI. Monday, 8:25 pm
    W, 15-1 vs ^ Atl
  • Rougned Odor (finger) back in action Monday
    Rougned Odor (finger) is back in the Rangers' lineup Monday.

    Advice: It's Odor's first start since he cracked the fingernail on his right middle finger last Tuesday. The young infielder has hit .336/.369/.581 since returning from the minors. Monday, 2:30 pm
  • Upton homers again, Padres top the Phillies
    Justin Upton went 1-for-5 with a solo home run as the Padres beat the Phillies on Sunday.

    Advice: Upton pushed the Padres' lead to 3-1 with a solo home run off of rookie starter Alec Asher in the third inning. It's his fourth home run in his last five games, giving him 24 on the season along with 72 RBI and a .253/.337/.460 batting line. Sunday, 1:58 pm
  • Rougned Odor (finger) held out again Sunday
    Rougned Odor (finger) remained out of the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He was able to go through some pregame drills, suggesting his return is close. Hanser Alberto is filling in at second base again for Odor. Sunday, 9:15 am
  • Zimmerman backs Zimmermann with solo homer
    Ryan Zimmerman went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Zimmerman touched up Marlins starter Tom Koehler for a solo homer to left-center in the second inning. The oft-injured first baseman has been scalding the ball of late, with a double, three homers and 11 RBI in his last six games. For the season, he's hitting a slightly-less-stellar .225/.294/.215 with 12 homers and 59 RBI over 311 at-bats. Saturday, 7:00 pm
    W, 15-1 vs ^ Atl
  • Zimmermann limits Marlins to one run in 7 IP
    Jordan Zimmermann turned in a nice start in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Marlins, throwing seven innings of one-run ball.

    Advice: Zimmermann scattered seven hits while striking out four and walking one. Justin Bour managed a solo homer against Zimmy in the seventh, but it was otherwise a trouble-free outing for the 29-year-old right-hander. Turning the corner to September, he'll look to improve on a 3.45 ERA and 1.22 WHIP while taking on the Braves. Saturday, 6:51 pm
  • Rougned Odor absent from Saturday's lineup
    Rougned Odor (finger) remained out of the Rangers' lineup Saturday against the Orioles.

    Advice: A cracked fingernail has kept him out since Tuesday. Hansen Alberto will grab another start at second base. With the rosters expanding in a few days, there's no need for Texas to place Odor on the disabled list. The 21-year-old has had a productive year, hitting .280 with a solid .479 slugging percentage. Saturday, 1:48 pm
  • Wilhelmsen earns fifth save in win over CWS
    Tom Wilhelmsen locked down his fifth save of the season with a perfect ninth inning in Friday's 2-0 win over the White Sox.

    Advice: Wilhelmsen entered with the Mariners clinging to a 2-0 lead. He made sure that slight advantage held up, recording three outs without issue. He's now 5-for-5 in save chances and has pitched to a 3.78 ERA with a 45/23 K/BB ratio over 47 2/3 innings. Friday, 9:53 pm
  • Gibson blanks Astros over 5 2/3 innings
    Kyle Gibson didn't allow a run to score in Friday's win over the Astros, tossing 5 2/3 innings of scoreless ball.

    Advice: Gibson scattered four hits while striking out four and walking three. While he kept the Astros off the scoreboard, he wasn't particularly efficient with his pitches and had thrown 111 when he was pulled with two outs in the sixth inning. He'll take a 3.82 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 111/55 K/BB ratio (over 158 innings) into a road date with the Royals next time he toes the rubber. Friday, 9:19 pm
    L, 6-4 vs ^ CWS
  • Harvey fans eight in six scoreless innings
    Matt Harvey turned in a strong performance in Friday's no-decision against the Red Sox, firing six innings of scoreless baseball.

    Advice: Harvey struck out eight, walked one and allowed just two hits during his six innings on the mound. This should have been enough to earn him a victory, but Mets reliever Logan Verrett was knocked for three runs in the seventh and the Red Sox would ultimately win 6-4 in 10 innings. Tough outcome aside, Harvey's now allowed one or fewer runs in each of his last five starts while boasting a 2.48 ERA and 0.99 WHIP for the season. Given the way he's throwing the ball, his upcoming home outing against the Phillies should be a breeze. Friday, 8:41 pm
  • Hamels magnificient in victory over Orioles
    Cole Hamels was magnificent in Friday's victory over the Orioles, racking up 10 strikeouts over eight innings of one-run ball.

    Advice: Hamels allowed just two hits on the evening while walking four. The lone run against him came home on a bases loaded walk to Chris Davis in the third inning. It's his second straight victory with his new club, where he owns a 3.89 ERA and 33/13 K/BB ratio through 34 2/3 innings in his five starts. He'll look to extend his winning streak when he takes on the Padres in San Diego on Wednesday. Friday, 8:18 pm
  • Liriano posts quality start in no-decision
    Francisco Liriano posted a quality start in Friday's no-decision against the Rockies, allowing three runs on four hits over his six frames.

    Advice: Liriano punched out five on the night and issued three free passes. He entered the sixth inning with a 3-2 lead and in line for his 10th victory of the year before Carlos Gonzalez clobbered a solo homer to tie the game. He'll carry a terrific 3.27 ERA and 1.16 WHIP into Thursday's start against the Brewers in Milwaukee. Friday, 7:34 pm
  • Justin Upton smacks 23rd homer in loss Friday
    Justin Upton smacked his 23rd home run of the season as the Padres fell to the Phillies in Philadelphia on Friday.

    Advice: His solo shot off Aaron Nola in the fourth inning wound up being the only scoring the Padres would do on the evening. He finished the night 1-for-4 and is now hitting .256/.341/.460 with 23 long balls and 71 RBI in his first year with the Padres. Friday, 7:07 pm
  • Odor (finger) out of Rangers' lineup again
    Rougned Odor (finger) remained out of the Rangers' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Odor hasn't played since cracking his right middle fingernail when he was hit by a grounder Tuesday. He did work out again prior to the game and should be back in there soon. Hanser Alberto is holding down second base again in Odor's place. Friday, 1:23 pm
  • Moss' two-run homer snaps 3-3 tie in fifth
    Brandon Moss went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer in Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Moss cracked his two-run shot off of Diamondbacks starter Rubby De La Rosa in the fifth inning, breaking a 3-3 tie. The Cardinals went on to win 5-3 as they completed a four-game sweep of the boys in the desert. In addition to the big home run, Moss also walked twice. Since joining the Cardinals on July 30, he's hit just .180/.317/.280 in an even 50 at-bats, though he does have 16 homers and 53 RBI to his good name for the season as a whole. Thursday, 10:11 pm
  • Logan Forsythe hits 15th homer in Rays' win
    Logan Forsythe went 2-for-4 and hit his 15th homer to help lead the Rays to a 5-4 win over the Twins on Thursday.

    Advice: Forsythe has been the Rays' best position player this year, and it isn't even particularly close. He's batting .278/.357/.437 through 439 at-bats. Thursday, 8:19 pm
  • Blanks (Achilles) to begin rehab stint Thu.
    Kyle Blanks (Achilles) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Thursday with Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Blanks has been sidelined since mid-June with a right Achilles injury. If all goes according to plan, he should be back in September as a bench player. Thursday, 1:19 pm
    60-Day DL
  • Harper's 2 hits, 2 RBI not enough for Nats
    Bryce Harper went 2-for-3 with a walk and a two-run single, but the Nationals dropped Wednesday's game to the Padres 6-5.

    Advice: Harper got the Nationals within reach when his seventh-inning two-run single made it a 6-5 game. The 22-year-old is on a seven-game hitting streak, carrying a .332/.456/.639 triple-slash line with 31 home runs, 76 RBI, and 89 runs scored in an MVP-caliber season. Wednesday, 7:34 pm
  • Justin Upton homers twice as Pads edge Nats
    Justin Upton cranked out a pair of homers in a 2-for-4 effort as the Padres edged the Nationals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Upton powered a two-run shot to left-center to give the Padres a 4-0 lead in the third inning, then added a solo shot in the seventh. He's batting .258/.342/.459 with 22 home runs and 70 RBI along with 18 stolen bases on the year. Wednesday, 7:27 pm
  • McClendon: Wilhelmsen is closer 'as we speak'
    Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Wednesday that Tom Wilhelmsen is the team's closer "as we speak."

    Advice: It's not a surprise, as Wilhelmsen has converted each of the club's last two save chances without much difficulty. Carson Smith is still probably the team's best reliever and perhaps their closer of the future, but he's going through a rough patch right now so it makes sense to give Wilhelmsen a shot. Wednesday, 11:43 am
  • Wilhelmsen slams door on Mariners, gets save
    Tom Wilhelmsen picked up his fourth save with a scoreless ninth inning facing the Athletics in Tuesday's 6-5 victory.

    Advice: Wilhelmsen worked around a two-out Sam Fuld double as Josh Reddick lined out to end the game. The right-hander got the save on Monday as well and appears to be the Mariners' leading ninth-inning option at the moment. He's 4-for-4 in save chances with a 3.86 ERA and a 45/23 K/BB ratio in 46 2/3 innings. Tuesday, 10:44 pm
  • Odor hits 11th home run in loss to Blue Jays
    Rougned Odor went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Odor hit a solo homer in the second inning, his 11th home run of the season. Odor added an RBI double in the fourth. The second baseman is having a strong sophomore campaign, batting .280/.333/.479 with 43 RBI and 38 runs scored in 87 games. Tuesday, 9:20 pm
  • X-rays on Rougned Odor's finger are negative
    X-rays on Rougned Odor's right middle finger came back negative.

    Advice: Odor's fingers got bloodied up when it was hit by a grounder Tuesday, but it appears he just has a laceration. Consider him day-to-day. Tuesday, 7:36 pm
  • Zimmerman leads Nats to win with a grand slam
    Ryan Zimmerman hit a grand slam in Tuesday's win against the Padres.

    Advice: Zimmerman's only hit in five at-bats was a sixth-inning grand slam off of Bud Norris that boosted the Nationals' lead to 8-2. It's his first homer since hitting two on August 9. Since then, he was batting only .189 (7-for-37). Zimmerman's numbers, overall, are still lackluster but the Nationals are hoping he can pick it up in time for a September playoff push. He's hitting .222/.296/.401 with 10 home runs and 53 RBI. Tuesday, 7:29 pm
    W, 15-1 vs ^ Atl
  • Rougned Odor exits game with hand injury
    Rougned Odor left Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays after being hit on the right hand by a grounder.

    Advice: The tip of Odor's right middle finger was noticeably bloody as he was lifted from the contest. He's being sent for an X-ray, although the Rangers are saying it's just precautionary. Tuesday, 6:57 pm
  • Tom Wilhelmsen would close on Monday
    Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said that Tom Wilhelmsen would like see the save chance if one came up on Monday.

    Advice: Wilhelmsen closed out the Mariners' win on Sunday, coming into the game after Carson Smith. McClendon hasn't officially anointed Wilhelmsen as the club's new ninth-inning man, but it does appear he's the preferred option at the moment over the struggling Smith. Pick him up in fantasy leagues if he's still on your waiver wire. Aug 24, 4:08 pm
  • Wilhelmsen picks up save versus White Sox
    Tom Wilhelmsen earned his third save of the 2015 season in the Mariners' win over the White Sox on Sunday.

    Advice: And the other two saves came in extra-inning situations. Carson Smith is struggling and Fernando Rodney has been pushed off the 40-man roster, so Wilhelmsen could vulture some more save opportunities down the stretch. "We had better results today," Mariners skipper Lloyd McClendon told after Sunday's win. "We'll see. Right now we're going to match up the best way we can and put guys in the best position you possibly can for them to succeed." Aug 24, 8:31 am
