  • Javier Baez finishes 4-for-6
    Javier Baez had four hits in six at-bats in Monday's 13-inning game.

    Advice: He was twice thrown out at home plate, though neither was a miscue on his part. Baez entered the night with a .197/.227/.296 line in 71 at-bats during August. Still, his glove has been earning him a lot of playing time. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:25 pm

  • DJ LeMahieu goes 2-for-5, knocks in three
    DJ LeMahieu went 2-for-5 with a double and three RBI versus the Dodgers on Monday.

    Advice: The Rockies have played a lot of home games this month, and LeMahieu is taking advantage, having hit .444 with 10 extra-base hits, 16 RBI, 17 walks and 22 runs scored in 23 games. He should have a shot at player of the month honors, but Kris Bryant is the clear favorite. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:41 pm
  • Jose Peraza exits game with facial contusion
    Jose Peraza exited Monday's game against the Angels with a facial contusion.

    Advice: Peraza was hit in the ear/jaw area by a pickoff throw at first base in the third inning. He was down on the ground for a while, but fortunately he didn't suffer any fractures. We should know more about his status on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:21 pm

  • Kolten Wong has big night in rare start Mon.
    Kolten Wong went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and a stolen base in Monday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Wong has been buried on the bench of late, as this was just his eighth start of the month and first since August 19. He made it count, though, with only his third home run of the season to go along with his sixth stolen base. Wong probably earned another start Tuesday with his big night, but he'll likely remain mostly a bench player going forward with Jedd Gyorko's hot bat and Aledmys Diaz (thumb) on his way back. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:33 pm
  • Jose Altuve hits 22nd homer
    Jose Altuve hit his 22nd homer of the year Monday against the Athletics.

    Advice: Altuve has as many homers in 516 at-bats this year as he did in 1,298 at-bats between 2014 and 2015. Still, he's actually ice cold of late. He's gone eight straight games with one or zero hits, dropping his average all of the way down to .354. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:23 pm
  • Max Muncy goes hitless in loss
    Max Muncy grounded into a double play, struck out and walked Monday against the Astros.

    Advice: Muncy was primarily a first baseman in the minors and never played a game at second base prior to this year, yet he's been starting pretty regularly at second base for the A's this month. It's not his bat keeping him in the lineup; he's hitting .189 with just four extra-base hits in 110 at-bats (though he has walked 16 times). Muncy doesn't have the bat to play first base in the majors, and it's highly unlikely that he'll cut it as a second baseman. It'd seem to make more sense for the A's to give Arismendy Alcantara a long look there in September, though it remains to be seen if they will. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:18 pm

  • Tyler Saladino cranks eighth home run
    Tyler Saladino had a two-RBI single and a solo homer in Monday's loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Saladino was the White Sox' offense in this one, as his single put the White Sox ahead in the fourth and his home run put them ahead in the seventh. Unfortunately for him and the Pale Hose, Jarrod Saltalamacchia put the Tigers back up for good with a homer in the eighth. Saladino has settled in as the White Sox' regular second baseman with Brett Lawrie banged up. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:04 pm
  • Jason Kipnis drives in winner in extras
    Jason Kipnis slapped a walk-off RBI single in the 10th inning of Monday's win over the Twins.

    Advice: The first two batters reached for the Indians in the bottom of the 10th. After Rajai Davis grounded into a fielder's choice, Kipnis plated Chris Gimenez with a single to left center to finally break a scoreless tie. Kipnis was the only batter on either side to reach base three times, as he had a couple singles and a walk. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:52 pm
  • Schoop hitless in loss to Blue Jays
    Jonathan Schoop went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Monday against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Schoop made his first start out of the leadoff spot on Monday with Adam Jones (hamstring) out of the lineup. Steve Pearce hit leadoff on Sunday and could get another chance there Tuesday if Jones needs more time. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:44 pm
  • Diaz (thumb) gets good news at checkup
    Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said that Aledmys Diaz (thumb) heard good news during a checkup with doctors on Monday.

    Advice: The plan calls for Diaz to report to Florida on Tuesday, with the hope that live at-bats aren't too far off. The rookie shortstop has been on the disabled list since the end of July with a hairline fracture in his thumb, but he could still be a factor for the stretch run. Greg Garcia and Jedd Gyorko will continue to fill in at shortstop for now. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:57 pm

  • La Stella to be called up this week
    Tommy La Stella will be among the Cubs' September call-ups this week.

    Advice: La Stella initially refused to report to Triple-A Iowa following his demotion late last month -- and was even placed on the temporary inactive list for a stretch -- but he finally came around to the idea and has been playing regularly between second base and third base in Triple-A. The 27-year-old was batting .295/.388/.457 at the time of his demotion and is capable of being a useful bench piece down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:10 pm

  • Kolten Wong starting at first base Monday
    Kolten Wong will start at second base Monday versus the Brewers.

    Advice: It will be his first start since August 19, as Greg Garcia will take a seat against right-hander Zach Davies. Wong will bat eighth. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:29 pm
  • Kinsler batting second Monday vs. White Sox
    Ian Kinsler will bat second Monday against the White Sox.

    Advice: Kinsler has batted leadoff in all 123 of his starts this season, but Tigers manager Brad Ausmus is trying something different. Cameron Maybin will bat leadoff against James Shields.Daily Slant: Whether it's the lead-off spot or not, Kinsler is in an excellent position to succeed at home against James Shields. The White Sox hurler has allowed a 2.29 HR/9 rate to RH bats to go along with an incredibly weak 8.1 K-BB%, so Kinsler is just one of a few Tigers worth targeting heavily this evening. Not only is the long ball a problem, but Shields has allowed a ton of hard contact to RH bats - he enters tonight with a 25.9 Hd-Sft% vs. RH bats on the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:23 pm
  • Neil Walker (back) out of lineup again Monday
    Neil Walker (back) is out of the Mets' lineup again Monday against the Marlins.

    Advice: Walker has now missed consecutive games due to a back injury from earlier this month. He's been red-hot for a while now, so his absence really hurts. Consider him day-to-day for now.Daily Slant: With Walker and Cabrera out of the Mets lineup, it improves the spot for Jose Fernandez even further. Fernandez still owns an eye-popping 15.0 SwStr% and 35.4 K% (both top the list on tonight’s slate) so his ceiling is absolutely immense on any given day, especially considering the Mets own the league’s 7th highest K% against RHP (22.0%). If you are spending upwards of $10K on a SP, go ahead and pay all the way up for the Marlins ace. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:08 pm

  • Addison Russell out of Cubs' lineup Monday
    Addison Russell is out of the Cubs' starting lineup Monday night against the Pirates.

    Advice: Javier Baez is starting at shortstop and batting eighth versus Pittsburgh left-hander Steven Brault. This appears to be a simple day of rest for Russell. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:43 pm
  • Pedroia (personal) out of Red Sox lineup Mon.
    Dustin Pedroia (personal) remains out of the Red Sox lineup Monday night against the Rays.

    Advice: Pedroia was excused from the Red Sox on Sunday morning to deal with a private family matter. It's not clear when he might return. Brock Holt is starting at second base and batting leadoff Monday versus righty Matt Andriese. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:13 pm

  • A's option Arismendy Alcantara to Stockton
    Athletics optioned INF/OF Arismendy Alcantara to High-A Stockton.

    Advice: The move clears a 25-man roster spot for Billy Butler, who was activated off the 7-day concussion disabled list in a corresponding move. Alcantara is 3-for-15 with eight strikeouts this season in the major leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:38 am

  • Raul Mondesi's three-run triple sinks Red Sox
    Raul Mondesi delivered a three-run triple in the sixth inning, propelling the Royals to a 10-4 victory over the Red Sox on Sunday night in Boston.

    Advice: The Royals entered the sixth inning trailing 4-2, but erupted for eight runs in the frame, highlighted by Mondesi's bases-clearing triple that put them ahead to stay. Penciled in as the club's starting second baseman for the remainder of the season, Mondesi is hitting .189/.232/.300 with a homer and 10 RBI in his limited action this season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:37 pm
  • Joe Panik crushes two homers as Giants roll
    Joe Panik crushed a pair of home runs and drove home four as the Giants routed the Braves 13-4 in San Francisco on Sunday afternoon.

    Advice: Panik gave the Giants the lead with a solo shot off of Braves starter Aaron Blair in the second inning, then increased that advantage with a towering two-run drive his next trip to the plate. He finished the day 3-for-4 and is now slashing .251/.329/.407 with 10 long balls and 52 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:57 pm

  • Angels outright Johnny Giavotella to Triple-A
    Angels sent INF Johnny Giavotella outright to Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: The Angels designated him for assignment last week despite the fact that he's probably their best option at second base. He went through waivers unclaimed though and will continue to provide depth for the Halos. He should return at some point in September. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:10 pm

  • Matt Duffy goes yard versus Astros
    Matt Duffy slugged his first home run as a member of the Rays on Sunday versus the Astros.

    Advice: It was a two-run shot in the top of the eighth inning that put Tampa Bay ahead 6-3. This has been a frustrating season for Duffy, who missed all of July and part of August with an Achilles injury, but he is certainly capable of finishing strong. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:39 pm

  • Pearce drives in three as O's avoid sweep
    Steve Pearce went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and three RBI in Sunday's win over the Yankees.

    Advice: Pearce snapped a scoreless tie with his sixth-inning solo home run off CC Sabathia, then proceeded to pad that lead with a two-run single in the seventh. He was sidelined by an elbow injury for two weeks earlier this month, but looks to be past that now. In 239 at-bats between the Rays and O's this season, the veteran first baseman is slashing a smooth .301/.380/.510 with 12 homers and 33 RBI. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:07 pm

  • Pedroia away from club due to family matter
    Dustin Pedroia will be away from the Red Sox on Sunday due to a family matter.

    Advice: The Red Sox will not make a roster move, and it's possible, although not a given, that Pedroia will rejoin the club on Monday. It's unfortunate timing, as Pedroia is red-hot at the plate with 11 hits in his last 12 at-bats. The Red Sox are playing the Sunday night game and haven't released a lineup yet, so it's unclear who will be filling in for Pedroia at second base. Aaron Hill, Brock Holt and Marco Hernandez are the options. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:08 am

  • Kinsler clubs leadoff homer in loss Saturday
    Ian Kinsler clubbed a leadoff homer in a losing effort against the Angels on Saturday.

    Advice: Kinsler jumped on a fastball from Brett Oberholtzer to give the Tigers an early 1-0 lead, but it would be short-lived. Kinsler finished the night 1-for-4 and is now slashing .273/.333/.466 with 23 homers and 66 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:22 pm
  • LeMahieu returns to Rockies lineup Saturday
    D.J. LeMahieu has returned to the Rockies starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: LeMahieu has been sidelined since Monday due to inflammation in his left wrist. The 28-year-old is having an outstanding season at the plate, slashing .344/.416/.501 with 10 homers, 50 RBI and nine stolen bases. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:35 am
  • LeMahieu (wrist) out of lineup again Friday
    DJ LeMahieu (wrist) remained out of the Rockies' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He hasn't played since Monday because of inflammation in his left wrist. The good news is LeMahieu is available off the bench and should be back in the lineup Saturday. Daniel Descalso is at second base in his place. The Rockies also have Ryan Raburn over David Dahl in left field with the Nationals starting southpaw Gio Gonzalez. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:30 pm

    Advice: Panik connected for a two-run blast off Ross Stripling in the fourth inning. The dinger was his eighth of the season. In addition, the 25-year-old second baseman is slashing .248/.327/.389 and has driven in 46 runs over 355 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:44 pm

  • Franklin (concussion) to return this weekend
    Nick Franklin (concussion) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Charlotte on Friday.

    Advice: Franklin expects to join the Rays in Houston later this weekend so it looks like he'll only need a game or two in the minors to get back up to speed. He suffered a concussion last week after getting hit by Kevin Kiermaier's backswing in the on-deck circle. Franklin has hit .292 with six steals in 34 appearances for Tampa Bay this year.

  • Saladino (back) singles, steals base
    Tyler Saladino (back) singled in three at-bats and stole a base on Wednesday.

    Advice: Saladino had missed four straight games due to back soreness. It obviously wasn't anything too serious. He's hitting .258/.295/.385 with 10 steals in 70 games this season as a utilityman for the White Sox. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:51 am
  • Dustin Pedroia steals two bases in loss
    Dustin Pedroia had two hits, two steals and two runs scored against the Rays on Wednesday.

    Advice: Pedroia doesn't contribute enough in homers and steals to function as an elite fantasy second baseman these days, but he's still plenty useful there and he remains an excellent major leaguer. He's hitting .306 with 83 runs scored in 122 games. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:09 pm

  • Addison Russell cranks two-run homer in win
    Addison Russell went 2-for-5 with a double and a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

    Advice: Russell cranked a two-run home run off Padres starter Christian Friedrich in the fifth inning. The dinger was his 19th of the season. For the campaign as a whole, the 22-year-old shortstop is slashing .251/.336/.445 across 418 at-bats. He has homered in each of his last three games, including a two-homer effort against the Rockies on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:34 pm
  • Saladino still sidelined by back discomfort
    Tyler Saladino missed a fourth straight start Tuesday due to back soreness.

    Advice: But the 27-year-old infielder did say Tuesday that it's "feeling better." Saladino hasn't appeared in a game for the White Sox since last Thursday. He had been serving as their primary starter at second base with Brett Lawrie (hamstring, quad, knee) on the disabled list. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:56 pm
  • Peraza stays hot with two hits, two steals
    Jose Peraza singled twice and stole a pair of bases in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

    Advice: He's now an incredible 9-for-19 at the plate since being recalled last week. There's not really a spot for Peraza to get regular starts once Zack Cozart (Achilles) is ready, but he's certainly playing well enough to force the Reds to make a tough decision. Perhaps they'll bench Scott Schebler. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:58 pm

  • Jonathan Schoop slugs home run No. 20
    Jonathan Schoop smacked a solo home run in Monday's victory over the Nationals.

    Advice: Schoop's dinger to lead off the third inning was the Orioles' first hit of the game. They tacked on three more runs in the fourth, with Mark Trumbo joining Schoop in going deep. Schoop now has a career-high 20 home runs, giving the O's five players that have reached the 20-homer mark. Pedro Alvarez (19) will join the group at some point. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:10 pm

    Athletics recalled INF/OF Arismendy Alcantara from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Alcantara has had a couple of brief stints with the big club since being acquired from the Cubs back in June, but he should now get a chance to stick around down the stretch. The 24-year-old has hit .276/.325/.457 with 11 homers and 32 steals over 102 games this season at the Triple-A level. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:16 pm

    Addison Russell hit a pair of solo homers Sunday in the Cubs' loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: He got to Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa in both the top of the fifth and the top of the seventh, but Colorado's offense produced 11 runs on 14 hits to take an 11-4 win. Russell finished the day 2-for-3 with two RBI and two runs scored. He's up to 17 homers and 78 RBI for the year. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 4:20 pm
  • Forsythe (back) unloads for three-run homer
    Logan Forsythe went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Rangers.

    Advice: Forsythe's three-run home run off Martin Perez broke the game wide-open in a five-run fourth, padding what had been a 3-2 lead. The homer was 16th of the season, one shy of the career-best 17 he posted in 2015. Overall, the 29-year-old outfielder is slashing a strong .279/.339/.481 across 362 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 2:50 pm
  • Logan Forsythe (back) returns to Rays' lineup
    Logan Forsythe (back) is back in the Rays' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's serving as the designated hitter and in his customary leadoff spot. It's possible the Rays will have Forsythe DH for a few days as they ease him back into things. The 29-year-old missed nearly a week of action with back spasms. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 7:12 am
  • Walker going on paternity leave this week
    Neil Walker will be away from the Mets for this week's series in St. Louis, as his wife will have labor induced Monday night.

    Advice: Walker is slated to rejoin the Mets on Friday against the Phillies. The second baseman return to action Saturday after missing four games with a back issue, going 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored.

  • Peraza has three hits, homer in return
    Jose Peraza went 3-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored Saturday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Peraza celebrated his return to the Reds -- he had been recalled earlier in the day -- with easily his best game as a major leaguer to date. Also of note, he started at shortstop in the game after working at the position in the minors following his August 2 demotion. There's a reason he was a second baseman coming up through the minors, but if the Reds want to use him at short then more power to them. The added eligibility, should he acquire it, would make him a more interesting player come spring 2017. Rotoworld.com Aug 20, 9:19 pm

    Advice: Saladino wasn't in Saturday's lineup and it looks like he's iffy for Sunday as well. The 27-year-old has played a utility role for the White Sox this season, appearing at seven different positions. Consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Aug 20, 5:56 pm

    Angels designated 2B Johnny Giavotella for assignment.

    Advice: Giavotella has played sparingly since Cliff Pennington's return from the disabled list and has only collected one hit in his last 19 at-bats. Despite his struggles, it shouldn't take Giavotella long to catch on with a new club. Rotoworld.com Aug 20, 4:47 pm

  • Panik scores three runs in win over Mets
    Joe Panik went 1-for-3 with a walk and three runs scored against the Mets on Friday.

    Advice: Panik singled in the third before coming around to score and was intentionally walked in a two-run seventh before later reaching on an error in a five-run eighth. The 25-year-old struggled miserably after returning from his concussion late last month, but he has shown some signs of progress in recent days by hitting .333 (10-for-30) with four doubles.
