  • Alex Gordon (groin) to play 4-5 games/week
    Royals manager Ned Yost plans to play Alex Gordon (groin) 4-5 games per week upon his activation from the disabled list.

    Advice: "This is kind of a one-shot deal," Yost said. "If he comes back and hurts it, he’s done. So we want to make sure he’s in great shape, healthy and ready to go, when he gets back." Gordon is hitting .400/.545/.600 over seven games so far on his rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha and is expected to be activated when rosters expand on Tuesday. "He feels really good," Yost said. "He’s running at about 90 percent, which is good. he’s taking walks, fouling off pitches, getting hits. He’s doing a lot of really good things. I just want to make sure that he’s ready when he gets here." Rotoworld.com Today, 8:09 am

  • Rajai Davis playing through finger injury
    Tigers manager Brad Ausmus revealed Saturday that Rajai Davis has been playing through a left middle finger injury since mid-May.

    Advice: Davis said that the injury has led to him not placing his finger on the bat when he swings. The speedster is hitting just .179 (19-for-106) over the last two months, so it would stand to reason that the ailment is affecting him. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:23 am
  • CC Sabathia (knee) plays catch
    CC Sabathia (knee) played catch on Saturday.

    Advice: It's the second time he's done so since landing on the disabled list. Sabathia was sporting a large brace on his arthritic right knee when he threw and will have to wear it if he returns this season. There's no room for him in the Yankees' rotation at the moment, although the club talked about using a six-man rotation before Sabathia was injured. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:56 am
    15-Day DL
     
  • Aaron Hicks to return as corner outfielder
    Aaron Hicks (hamstring) will be used as a corner outfielder when he returns from the disabled list.

    Advice: Hicks began a rehab assignment Saturday and should be activated at some point this week. There's no spot for him in center field with Byron Buxton around, but Hicks was really playing well before getting hurt and should be in the lineup regularly. The odd man out could be Torii Hunter, who has been receiving a lot of days off of late and is down to .232/.290/.401 for the season. "People are excited to see the day when Buxton, Hicks and (Eddie) Rosario are out there together," Twins manager Paul Molitor said. "We’ll have to figure it out day-to-day, what gives us the best chance to win a game." Rotoworld.com Today, 6:47 am

  • Peraza swipes two bases, Dodgers top Cubs
    Jose Peraza went 2-for-4 with two stolen bases Saturday in the Dodgers' 5-2 defeat of the Cubs.

    Advice: Peraza singled, stole third base, and scored a run in the bottom of the third inning. In the bottom of the seventh inning, he smacked an RBI double and scored his second run of the game. In the eighth inning he reached on a fielder's choice and stole second. The young infield prospect can be a weapon as a pinch-runner down the stretch for Los Angeles and he'll be an intriguing daily fantasy play on days he starts. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:48 pm
  • Mat Latos pitches well in return to rotation
    Mat Latos held the Cubs to two runs over 4 2/3 innings Saturday in a no-decision.

    Advice: Latos was skipped on his last turn through the Dodgers' rotation and pitched pretty well in his return to action Saturday all things considered. The right-hander walked three but struck out five and yielded only four hits. He'll face the Padres on the road next. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:44 pm
  • Lester allows five earned in loss to Dodgers
    Jon Lester gave up five earned runs over six innings Saturday in a loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Lester didn't issue a walk and struck out seven, but the Dodgers tagged him for eight hits and took advantage of his inability to control the running game with three stolen bases. Lester should be able to bounce back in his next start at home against the Diamondbacks. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:42 pm
  • Escobar (hand) sitting out again Saturday
    Yunel Escobar (hand) is not in the Nationals' starting lineup Saturday against the Marlins.

    Advice: It's the second game in a row he's missed with a hand injury. Anthony Rendon is filling in at third base. Escobar has posted a surprising .308 average this year in 408 at-bats. That's well above his .279 career average. He's day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:38 pm
  • Dodgers recall Jose Peraza from Triple-A
    Dodgers recalled INF Jose Peraza from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: He would've been back with the club once rosters expand in September, but with the injury to Yasiel Puig he gets to return a couple of days early. He will provide infield depth down the stretch for the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:21 pm
  • Aaron Hicks (hamstring) ready for rehab games
    Aaron Hicks (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester on Saturday.

    Advice: He'll remain there for a couple days before returning on September 3 when he's first eligible. Hick has missed the last couple weeks with a left hamstring strain. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:39 pm

  • Yunel Escobar (hand) still out on Friday
    Yunel Escobar (hand) is out of the Nationals' lineup Friday.

    Yunel Escobar is considered day-to-day after X-rays on his hand came back negative late Thursday.

    Advice: He was lifted from Thursday's game after being drilled by a pitch on his right hand. He was fortunate to avoid any fractures though and should be able to return to the lineup in a day or two once the swelling subsides. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:29 pm
  • Yunel Escobar leaves after hit by pitch
    Yunel Escobar was removed from Thursday's game against the Padres after being hit by a pitch on his right hand.

    Advice: He will presumably head for X-rays to rule out any structural damage. Danny Escobar replaced him and would see increased action if Escobar is forced to miss an extended period of time. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:01 pm
  • Grichuk (elbow) yet to resume activities
    Randal Grichuk (elbow) has yet to resume baseball activities.

    Advice: Grichuk was placed on the disabled list a little over a week ago with a muscle strain and low-grade ligament sprain in his right elbow. The Cardinals aren't overly concerned that it will be a long-term absence, but expect them to err on the side of caution since his ligament is involved. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:53 pm

  • Yunel Escobar (neck) in Tuesday's lineup
    Yunel Escobar (neck) is back in Tuesday's lineup against the Padres.

    Advice: Escobar hasn't played since leaving Friday's game with a hyperextended neck. With his return and Denard Span's activation from the DL, the Nationals have their full lineup together for the first time this season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:48 pm
  • CC Sabathia (knee) hopes for quick return
    CC Sabathia (knee) said Tuesday that he hopes to return from the disabled list when he's first eligible.

    Advice: Sabathia has an arthritic right knee, but he received good news when he went for a second opinion Tuesday in New York.

  • CC Sabathia (knee) to get second opinion
    CC Sabathia (knee) will receive a second opinion in New York on Tuesday.

    Advice: Yankees manager Joe Girardi said earlier Monday that Sabathia could be done for the season with a right knee injury, but the left-hander will do his best to make it back. "That’s the plan, to try to be back out on the field," Sabathia said. More should be known about his chances on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:16 pm

  • Lester brilliant but falls short of shutout
    Jon Lester fell one out shy of a shutout Monday, allowing one run over 8 2/3 frames but settling for a no-decision in a 2-1 win over the Indians.

    Advice: Gunning for the first shutout by a Cubs lefty since 2006, Lester hit Abraham Almonte with a pitch to lead off the ninth inning and Francisco Lindor reached on an infield single with one out. He struck out Michael Brantley but then allowed a run-scoring single to Carlos Santana. Lester was then pulled, and Hector Rondon wound up picking up the victory after retiring one batter when Kris Bryant hit a walk-off homer in the ninth. The southpaw surrendered six hits, walked one and struck out six on the day, lowering his ERA to 3.44. He gets the Dodgers this weekend. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:59 pm
  • CC Sabathia (knee) could be done for season
    Yankees placed LHP CC Sabathia on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee injury.

    Advice: Yankees manager Joe Girardi said while making the announcement that Sabathia could be done for the year. Sabathia had surgery on his right knee last season and has needed it drained on two different occasions this summer. If his 2015 is indeed over, the veteran southpaw will finish up with a 5.27 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, and 113/37 K/BB ratio in 138 1/3 innings. He's owed $25 million in 2016. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:04 pm
    15-Day DL
     
  • Kemp drives home pair of runs in ninth
    Matt Kemp went 1-for-5 with a two-run single in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Kemp's two-run single in the ninth inning merely served as window dressing in the eventual 10-3 loss. The veteran outfielder has driven in two runs in each of his last three games and he's now rolling with a 15-game hitting streak. For the season, he's slashing .267/.314/.423 with 15 homers and 76 RBI. Rotoworld.com Aug 23, 5:17 pm
  • CC Sabathia (knee) expected to land on DL
    Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Sunday that he expects CC Sabathia (knee) to be placed on the disabled list.

    Advice: Sabathia was scheduled to undergo an MRI after leaving Sunday's start with discomfort in his right knee. As the team had been planning to move to a six-man rotation upon the return of Michael Pineda on Wednesday, it seems likely they'll now opt to keep the traditional five-man alignment until Sabathia is ready to return.

  • CC Sabathia to undergo MRI on right knee
    CC Sabathia will undergo an MRI after leaving Sunday's start with discomfort in his right knee.

    Advice: That's the knee he had surgery on last season and the one he's had drained on two occasions since spring training. The Yankees had been slated to go to a six-man rotation with Michael Pineda's (forearm) return this week, but it's possible Pineda might now just replace Sabathia. Rotoworld.com Aug 23, 11:56 am
    15-Day DL
     
  • CC Sabathia exits with undisclosed injury
    CC Sabathia left Sunday's start against the Indians with an undisclosed injury.

  • Phil Hughes (back) yet to resume throwing
    Phil Hughes (back) has yet to resume throwing.

    Advice: The Twins had been hoping that Hughes would be ready for activation when first eligible on August 25, but obviously that's not going to happen. He's been limited to pool workouts to this point and feels minor irritation when he makes certain movements. "He’s not throwing," manager Paul Molitor said. "He’s better than he was, obviously. He’s just not turning around as fast as we hoped he would at this point." It sounds like Hughes won't be back until September. Tyler Duffey will continue to fill in. Rotoworld.com Aug 23, 6:53 am

  • Matt Kemp goes 2-for-5, homers
    Matt Kemp finished 2-for-5 with a homer against the Cardinals on Friday.

    Advice: Kemp has four homers in the last 10 days and seven since the All-Star break. It's just too bad he's stopped running; he's tried just one steal in the second half after going 8-for-9 during the first half. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 11:06 pm
  • Pollock fills up box score vs. Reds
    A.J. Pollock had a big night Friday against the Reds, going 4-for-5 with a solo homer, two stolen bases, and three runs scored.

    Advice: Pollock also had a single and a double. It's his second straight four-hit game. On the strength of a big August, his batting average is now up to .321 on the year, the highest it's been since June 13. He has been a fantasy monster all year long. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 9:34 pm

    Yunel Escobar was forced to leave Friday's game against the Brewers with an apparent injury after running into a railing while chasing a foul ball.

    Advice: It's unclear exactly where the injury is or the severity, but the Nationals should have an update on his status shortly. Anthony Rendon shifted to third base with Danny Espinosa entering the game to play second. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 4:31 pm
  • A.J. Pollock goes 4-for-5 in win
    A.J. Pollock had four hits, three RBI and a stolen base against the Reds on Thursday.

    Advice: Without a doubt, Pollock has been this year's best player who isn't the best player on his own team. He's batting .316 with 46 extra-base hits, 83 runs scored and 30 steals as Paul Goldschmidt's sidekick, all while playing Gold Glove-caliber defense in center field. Rotoworld.com Aug 20, 8:10 pm
  • Gordon (groin) to begin rehab stint Sunday
    Alex Gordon (groin) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha on Sunday.

    Advice: Gordon has been sidelined since July 8 with a Grade 2 groin strain, but he's currently on track to rejoin the first-place Royals by the end of the month. The 31-year-old was batting .279/.394/.457 with 11 home runs and 39 RBI over 78 games prior to the injury. Rotoworld.com Aug 20, 1:49 pm

  • Jon Lester gets pounded by Tigers
    Jon Lester was lit up for seven runs and three homers in 2 1/3 innings by the Tigers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Lester's four-game winning streak was snapped. It was both his shortest outing of the season and his most runs allowed as a Cub. He was supposed to get away from the Tigers now that he's in the NL, but he's faced them twice this season and gotten rocked both times. Just two of his 11 career regular-season starts against the Tigers were quality starts. Rotoworld.com Aug 19, 9:08 pm
