  • Trea Turner among Nationals regulars resting
    Trea Turner is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's among many regulars resting for the Nats a day after they clinched the National League East. Ben Revere will handle center field. Only Bryce Harper, Anthony Rendon and Danny Espinosa are playing among the team's normal starters. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:33 am
  • Gordon runs wild on Braves in Marlins victory
    Dee Gordon went 2-for-3 with three stolen bases and two runs scored in the Marlins' 6-4 win over the Braves on Saturday.

    Advice: Gordon had no fear for Braves catcher Anthony Recker, walking and stealing second base in the first inning, stealing third base in the third inning and stealing second again an inning later. The three steals give him 26 steals in 74 games this year. His .257/.298/.320 line leaves something to be desired, but the 28-year-old's speed is a fantasy difference-maker and with a full year to work with in 2017, he should once again be among the cream of the crop at second base.

  • Dietrich launches seventh homer versus Braves
    Derek Dietrich hit a two-run home run in Saturday's win over the Braves.

    Advice: Dietrich hit the two-run blast off Braves starter Aaron Blair in the first inning. He finished 1-for-4 in the game. Dietrich now has seven homers and 42 RBI in 122 games, batting a respectable .286/.381/.437 in that span. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:17 pm

  • Drew picks up two-run single against Pirates
    Stephen Drew went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Saturday's win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Drew had a big two-run single in the first inning to widen the Nats' early lead, and they never looked back. In his last four games, Drew is 6-for-15 with two doubles, two RBI and two runs scored, and with Daniel Murphy still sidelined it's likely the 33-year-old continues to get regular playing time as the season winds down. Drew is hitting .281/.345/.539 in 64 games this year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:56 pm

    Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-4 with a grand slam to help the Red Sox defeat the Rays 6-4 on Saturday.

    Advice: The Sox were trailing in the seventh inning when Pedroia stepped to the plate with two outs and the sacks jacked. He unloaded them with his 14th home run of the season, helping them clinch a playoff berth in the process. The homer also gave him his 100th run scored this year, and the 33-year-old is batting .318/.377/.447 with 71 RBI and seven steals through 148 games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:45 pm
  • Forsythe hits 20-homer plateau for first time
    Logan Forsythe hit his 20th home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: He got there in legitimate fashion, taking all-everything closer Craig Kimbrel deep for a solo shot in the ninth inning. It's the first time in Forsythe's career that he's hit 20 homers in a season. The 29-year-old is batting .274/.344/.464 with 52 RBI, 75 runs scored and six steals to date.

    White Sox manager Robin Ventura expects Tyler Saladino (back) will have his back checked out when the team returns home on Monday.

    Advice: He was scratched from Friday's lineup with back discomfort and is expected to miss the entire weekend series in Cleveland. It's been a rough injury month for Saladino, who just returned after missing three games with a calf issue earlier this week. The 27-year-old has hit .282 this year with eight homers, 38 RBI and 11 steals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:41 pm

Rookie Pat Valaika will draw the start at second base Saturday while batting seventh against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:11 pm
  • Yangervis Solarte returns after wife's death
    Yangervis Solarte has rejoined the Padres.

    Advice: He hasn't played since his wife passed away from cancer last weekend. Solarte has had a strong season for the Padres, hitting .284 with a career-high 15 HR and 68 RBI. Ryan Schimpf handed third base during his absence. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:34 pm
  • Flores (wrist) could be done for the year
    ESPN New York's Adam Rubin reports Wilmer Flores (wrist) may be done for the season.

    Advice: He isn't close to swinging a bat and has already received two cortisone shots since going down with a bruised wrist two weeks ago. Flores could return if the Mets make a deep postseason run but it's a near certainty he won't be back for the final week of the regular season. Assuming that's the case, Flores will close out the 2016 campaign with 16 HR, 49 RBI and a .267 average across 307 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:46 pm

    Jose Peraza clubbed a three-run homer as the Reds fell to the Brewers on Friday night in Milwaukee.

    Advice: Peraza swatted his go-ahead homer off of Zach Davies in the fifth inning, briefly giving the Reds a 3-1 advantage. He has settled in nicely atop the Reds lineup and with his 2-for-4 effort on Friday is now slashing .327/.349/.423 with three long balls and 24 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:12 pm

  • Prado delivers two-run double in loss
    Martin Prado delivered a two-run double in Friday’s loss to the Braves.

    Advice: His first-inning double gave the Marlins an early 2-0 lead, but they were held off the board the rest of the way. With seven homers, Prado hasn’t shown much punch this year, but he has driven in 73 runs to go along with a .308/.363/.418 batting line. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:57 pm

    Advice: Ramirez tagged Miguel Gonzalez for a two-run homer in the third inning that knotted the game up at 2-2. He also added a two-run double in the sixth that increased the Tribe's advantage to 9-4. He finished the night 2-for-5 with three runs scored and is now slashing a robust .315/.367/.469 on the season with 11 homers and 75 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:52 pm

    Advice: However, he won't return this weekend in Toronto as previously hoped, as the Yankees don't want to play Castro on artificial turf. It does sound like the second baseman could be back in the lineup early next week if he continues to progress. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:49 pm

  • MRI reveals strained glute for Daniel Murphy
    Daniel Murphy has been diagnosed with a strained left glute following an MRI.

    Advice: Nationals manager Dusty Baker said that the ailment doesn't affect Murphy when he hits, but it's an issue when he runs. The club says there's no timetable for his return, although they've ruled him out through at least the weekend. That means he'll miss, at minimum, seven straight starts. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:09 pm

  • Aledmys Diaz says his arm is feeling fine
    Aledmys Diaz said Friday that his right arm is feeling fine.

    Advice: "I'm good," Diaz said. The shortstop is out of the Cardinals' lineup Friday for the second time in three games since manager Mike Matheny said Diaz was dealing with some arm strength issues. He's started only seven of 12 contests since returning from the disabled list. It doesn't make sense that Diaz would be sitting if he's healthy, so it seems likely that something is going on here.

  • Aledmys Diaz not in Cards' lineup Friday
    Aledmys Diaz is absent from the Cardinals' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He's now been on the bench for two of the last three games and has started just seven of 12 contests since being activated from the disabled list. Manager Mike Matheny said Tuesday that Diaz has been having issues with arm strength, although it's unclear if that's why he's not playing Friday. Jedd Gyorko is at shortstop. Brandon Moss is also on the bench Friday, as the Cards are going with Matt Adams at first base and Kolten Wong in left field. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:42 am

  • Solarte (personal) would like to return
    Yangervis Solarte (personal) would like to return this season, but Padres manager Andy Green said the infielder's situation remains "fluid."

    Advice: Solarte's wife, Yuliett, died this past Saturday from complications related to cancer. She was only 31. Obviously the Padres will give Solarte all the time he needs. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:04 am
  • Castro (hamstring) could return this weekend
    Starlin Castro (hamstring) could return to the Yankees' lineup as soon as this weekend.

    Advice: Manager Joe Girardi essentially ruled Castro out for the season earlier this week, but the second baseman has progressed more quickly than expected. He's done treadmill work and agility drills at the club's spring training complex in Florida and hopes to begin hitting again. "I don’t know if it’s a realistic hope, but I think it’s my hope," Girardi said of the possibility of Castro rejoining the team in Toronto. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:51 am

  • D.J. LeMahieu hits solo home run in loss
    D.J. LeMahieu went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: LeMahieu connected for a solo shot off Brett Anderson with one out in the fifth inning. The tater was his 11th of the season. In addition, the 28-year-old second baseman is hitting .352/.422/.503 and has driven in 66 runs over 537 at-bats. He has put forth two-hit showings in three of his last four games.

  • Hernandez reaches five times, scores thrice
    Cesar Hernandez went 2-for-3 with three walks and three runs scored in Thursday's marathon loss to the Mets.

    Advice: Hernandez chipped in a single and a triple in the 11-inning contest, and it was the second time this year that he's reached base five times in a game. The 26-year-old has a sneaky nine-game hitting streak going, during which he's 13-for-37 (.351) with a pair of triples and eight runs scored. The good stretch has his overall line up to .293/.367/.398 in 146 games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:45 pm

  • Ian Kinsler (concussion) will not play Thurs.
    Ian Kinsler (concussion) will not play Thursday.

    Advice: Kinsler felt good after running, playing catch, and fielding grounders on Thursday morning at Target Field, but he has to be symptom-free for 24 hours under MLB's concussion protocol. It will cost him two games Thursday, with the Tigers playing a split doubleheader on the road against the Twins. He should be back in action for Friday night's series opener against the Royals in Detroit. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:17 am

  • Kinsler says he's free of concussion symptoms
    Ian Kinsler said Thursday that he is free of the symptoms from his mild concussion.

    Advice: Kinsler went through a morning workout that included fielding grounders, playing catch, and some light running. It sounds like he could play in at least one half of Thursday's doubleheader against the Twins. He has ultimately missed just one game. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:58 am

    Ben Zobrist went 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: He also walked. Zobrist has been in an extended slump of late. Reds pitching was just what he needed to start putting the bat on the ball again. The 35-year-old veteran owns a .267 batting average with 15 homers, 68 RBI and 88 runs scored in 499 at-bats.

    Advice: His second inning single got Steve Selsky safely to the plate but catcher Tucker Barnhart got thrown out trying to score a second run. Peraza has hit very well this season while playing all over the field defensively. He has a .324/.346/.407 slash line with two home runs and 16 stolen bases in 63 games since getting the call.

    Advice: He also worked a walk as he reached base in all four plate appearances. He is batting .315 with 10 homers, 79 runs, 71 RBI and 22 stolen bases in 143 games. He doesn't have a ton of power and at five feet, nine inches he isn't likely to develop too much. His ability to hit for average combines with his speed to produce a valuable fantasy third baseman.

    Advice: His previous career high was 11. His first homer came in the middle of back-to-back-to-back jacks off Masahiro Tanaka in the third inning. He went deep again with the bases empty in the eighth inning. Miller has a .249 batting average with 77 RBI and the 30 homers.

    Mets manager Terry Collins has ruled out Wilmer Flores (wrist) for Thursday's game against the Phillies.

    Advice: Collins deemed the worry-level surrounding Flores' wrist as a "DEFCON 4," so that is somewhat disconcerting. The team had hoped that the 25-year-old infielder would be able to return to the lineup against Phillies southpaw Adam Morgan on Thursday. Flores is currently sidelined by a left wrist injury suffered in a collision at home plate on September 10. He has been given two cortisone shots in the intervening days, but Collins said Flores has not been able to swing a bat since the collision. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:26 pm

    Advice: Grogginess is a concussion symptom, so Kinsler probably isn't going to be available off the bench for Tuesday night's game against the Twins and he may even be questionable for the remainder of this week. The veteran second baseman began feeling light-headed during Sunday's series finale against the Indians and now has to pass through MLB's concussion protocol. Andrew Romine is at second for Detroit on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:43 pm

  • Holt excused following death in family
    Brock Holt will be away from the Red Sox for the next two days following a death in his family.

    Advice: Holt just returned to the Red Sox starting lineup Monday after an eight-day absence due to shoulder trouble. He should be back for Thursday's series finale in Baltimore. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:30 pm

    Dustin Pedroia is out Tuesday with a sore left knee.

    Advice: Pedroia called the injury minor and said he expects to return Wednesday versus the Orioles. Marco Hernandez is starting at second base and batting ninth on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:28 pm
  • Kinsler (concussion) sits Tuesday vs. Twins
    Ian Kinsler (head) is out of the Tigers' starting lineup on Tuesday against the Twins.

    Advice: And he wasn't on the pregame batting practice schedule either, which means he probably won't be available off the bench. Kinsler began experiencing concussion-like symptoms in Sunday's series finale against the Indians, though he did travel with the Indians to Minnesota later that night. Andrew Romine is starting at second base and batting ninth on Tuesday in Minnesota. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:03 pm

  • Flores given second cortisone shot for wrist
    Wilmer Flores was given a second cortisone injection for his injured left wrist.

    Advice: Flores hasn't appeared in a game for the Mets since suffering a bone bruise in an awkward home-plate collision with A.J. Pierzynski on September 10 in Atlanta, and it's going to be at least another couple days before he can return. T.J. Rivera is at second base and James Loney is at first base on Tuesday night against the Braves. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:13 pm

  • Franklin diagnosed with moderate hammy sprain
    Nick Franklin was diagnosed with a moderate strain of his left hamstring following an MRI.

    Advice: Franklin suffered the injury last Thursday. At this point, it's going to be tough for him to make it back this season. Steven Souza (hip) is also sidelined right now, so Mikie Mahtook figures to see regular playing time in right field over the final two weeks. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:41 pm

    Daniel Murphy (leg) is out of the starting lineup again Tuesday against the Marlins.

    Advice: Murphy has now been held out of the starting lineup for three straight days due to what he has described as left leg soreness. He was able to pinch-hit on Monday, so it doesn't appear to be overly serious. Jayson Werth and Ryan Zimmerman will also get the day off on Tuesday while Brian Goodwin will play left and Clint Robinson will start at first. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:36 pm

    Daniel Murphy described his current injury as left leg soreness.

    Advice: Murphy is still dealing with the effects of a slide into second base on Saturday. Nationals manager Dusty Baker initially called it "buttocks" pain, but either way he's sitting out his second straight game and won't take batting practice Monday. Consider the star second baseman day-to-day for now. Rotoworld.com Sep 19, 1:24 pm

  • Starlin Castro (hammy) likely done for season
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he would consider it a "bonus" if Starlin Castro (hamstring) appears in another game this season.

    Advice: Castro suffered a Grade 1 right hamstring strain Saturday while trying to leg out a double. That's typically a two-week injury, and there are only two weeks left in the 2016 regular season. "It's hard to say. It really just depends on how quickly he heals," Girardi said. "Hopefully it's not too long. Hopefully it's not more than a week, but still I think that's probably pushing it." Rotoworld.com Sep 19, 6:33 am

  • Kinsler (concussion) traveled with team Sun.
    Ian Kinsler (head) traveled with the Tigers out of Cleveland on Sunday night.

    Advice: That's a positive sign for a guy who began experiencing concussion-like symptoms during Sunday's series finale against the Indians. There should be a more informative update ahead of the Tigers' series opener Tuesday night at Minnesota's Target Field. Kinsler, 34, is batting .277/.335/.469 with 26 homers and 78 RBI in 144 games this season for Detroit, a team still trying to fight its way into the Wild Card mix. Rotoworld.com Sep 19, 6:22 am

  • Nick Franklin to undergo MRI on hamstring
    Nick Franklin is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his left hamstring strain Monday.

    Advice: Franklin hasn't played since straining the hamstring last Thursday and he isn't making much progress on the side. Any injury is a potential season-ender at this point, but the MRI results should tell the whole story. Franklin, 25, has registered an impressive .280/.343/.465 batting line in 53 games this summer for Tampa Bay. He missed time with a concussion in August. Rotoworld.com Sep 19, 6:07 am

  • Aledmys Diaz slugs 16th home run of year
    Aledmys Diaz slugged his 16th home run of the season Sunday in the Cardinals' defeat of the Giants.

    Advice: It was a two-run shot to left off Giants starter Albert Suarez in the top of the third inning. Diaz also tallied his 26th double of the season against Suarez in the first inning, finishing 2-for-4 and improving his already-impressive OPS from .883 to .895. The rookie shortstop from Cuba has been a terrific find for St. Louis. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 4:25 pm

    Derek Dietrich went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a walk against the Phillies on Sunday.

    Advice: Dietrich started his first three games back from the disabled list Sept. 3-5, but this was just his third start in 13 days since. He's playing well enough to justify more at-bats; he's 9-for-24 with a homer, two doubles and three walks since coming back. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 2:24 pm

  • Trea Turner homers twice in loss to Braves
    Trea Turner continued his dominance of National League pitching on Saturday, going 3-for-4 with a pair of home runs in a losing effort against the Braves.

    Advice: He also put his blazing speed on full display again, swiping his 27th base. He has been simply unbelievable in his 59 games with the big league squad, slashing .356/.375/.585 with 11 long balls, 34 RBI and 27 stolen bases. He's single-handedly propelling many owners to fantasy titles with his play over the past few weeks, and his stock is sky-rocketing up next spring's draft boards. Rotoworld.com Sep 17, 1:36 pm

    Updating an earlier report, Starlin Castro left Saturday's game against the Red Sox with a right hamstring strain.

    Advice: He injured himself while running the bases on a fifth-inning double. Castro will undergo more tests and could be headed for an MRI.

  • LeMahieu notches three more hits Friday
    DJ LeMahieu finished 3-for-5 with a bases-clearing double, a stolen base, and a run scored on Friday against the Padres.

    Advice: LeMahieu had two doubles and a single on the night. He has hit safely in seven straight games and has six hits over his last two games, which has pulled him dead even with the Nationals’ Daniel Murphy for first in the NL with a .349 batting average. This one could go down to the wire. Rotoworld.com Sep 16, 10:12 pm
  • Gordon has three hits, two steals in loss
    Dee Gordon went 3-for-6 with two steals and a run scored in Friday’s extra-inning loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: Gordon found himself in a deep slump after returning from his PED suspension, but he’s finally starting to heat up at the plate. He has hit safely in each of his last eight games and has multi-hit games in three out of his last four. After stealing just four bases in a 29-game span from August 13-September 13, he has swiped five bases over his last two games. Rotoworld.com Sep 16, 9:17 pm

    Trea Turner had another monster night at the plate in Friday's 7-2 win over the Braves, going 4-for-5 with a two-run homer, two stolen bases, and four runs scored.

    Advice: Ho-hum. This was Turner’s third four-hit game in 58 games in the majors this season. We all heard about the speed. And he’s delivered by swiping 26 bases in 30 chances. But the power has been a nice surprise. He’s now up to nine homers. Oh, and he's hitting .349. He’s going to go off the board very early in fantasy drafts next spring. Rotoworld.com Sep 16, 8:07 pm

    Yangervis Solarte was scratched from the Padres lineup on Friday due to a family issue.

    Advice: He left the club to go home and be with his family. There's no timetable for his return at the moment, but with the Padres long out of contention, he certainly won't be rushed.

    Starlin Castro collected four hits, two RBI and a run scored in Thursday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: The Yankees lost, but not by any fault of Castro's. The second baseman had a double and a pair of RBI singles in the contest, his fourth four-hit game this year. It was also his fourth consecutive multi-hit game. The Cubs didn't have a huge need for the 26-year-old but it now appears they might have sold themselves short in the trade with the Yankees -- Castro is batting .275/.306/.441 with 21 home runs, 69 RBI and 62 runs scored in his first season in pinstripes.
