  • Anderson finishes double shy of cycle vs. MIN
    Tim Anderson went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer and two runs scored in Friday’s win over the Twins.

    Advice: Anderson finished a double shy of the cycle. He had a chance to get there in the bottom of the eighth inning, but he grounded out. The rookie shortstop has showed an alarming lack of plate discipline with a 113/12 K/BB ratio, but he has helped in fantasy leagues anyway by batting .284 with 36 extra-base hits (including nine homers), 30 RBI, 10 stolen bases, and 57 runs scored over 97 games.

  • Polanco has RBI single in loss
    Jorge Polanco went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in a loss to the White Sox on Friday.

    Advice: Polanco has received an opportunity to serve as the starting shortstop down the stretch and has posted a solid .283/.336/.418 batting line for the year. The big question is whether he has shown enough defensively to stick there. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:27 pm
  • Gyorko socks his 29th homer Friday
    Jedd Gyorko socked a solo homer and drew a walk in Friday’s win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Gyorko was acquired from the Padres over the winter to serve in a utility infielder role this season, but he leads the Cardinals with 29 homers. 22 of them have come in the second half. Only Brian Dozier has hit more homers in that time. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:57 pm

  • Lindor breaks out of slump, slugs homer
    Francisco Lindor busted out a slump by going 2-for-2 with a three-run homer, a walk, and two runs scored in a 7-2 win over the Royals.

    Advice: Lindor snapped an 0-for-29 hitless streak with a double off Yordano Ventura in a four-run third inning. He celebrated the double and Ventura apparently didn’t like it, as he hit him with a pitch in his next at-bat in the fifth inning. Lindor responded by slugging a three-run homer off Brian Flynn in his next at-bat. Even with the quiet September, the 22-year-old shortstop is batting .303/.359/.436 with 15 homers, 75 RBI, and 19 steals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:25 pm
  • Galvis leaves game with hamstring tightness
    Freddy Galvis was forced to leave Friday's game against the Mets due to tightness in his right hamstring.

    Advice: The injury isn't believed to be serious, but it could certainly impact his availability the rest of the way. The 26-year-old has shown surprising power this season, hitting 20 long balls and plating 67 runs while swiping 17 bases. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:20 pm

  • Alex Bregman not in Astros lineup Saturday
    Alex Bregman is not in the Astros starting lineup for Friday night's contest against the Angels.

    Advice: Bregman (hamstring) returned to action on Wednesday, but it looks as though they'll still play things cautiously with him down the stretch. With the Astros out of the wild card hunt, it wouldn't be surprising to see him sit out the final two games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:16 pm

    Wilmer Flores (wrist) will attempt to swing a bat Friday.

    Advice: It's been 20 days since Flores hurt his left wrist and four days since his last (unsuccessfully) tried to swing a bat. This looks like a last-ditch effort from Flores in hopes of being available for a potential Wild Card Game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:23 pm

  • Jed Lowrie had an additional surgery
    In addition to surgery on his left foot, Jed Lowrie also recently had an operation for a deviated septum.

    Advice: "I didn’t think anything of it, and then I saw an ear, nose and throat specialist and it turns out it wasn’t just a deviated septum, there were also two bone spurs," Lowrie said. "My sleep had been messed up for a long time, I realized." The additional surgery doesn't change Lowrie's rehab schedule. He's expected to be ready to go for spring training.

  • Sardinas collects three hits in loss to LAD
    Luis Sardinas went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI single in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Sardinas hit an RBI single in the fourth inning to boost the Padres to a 2-0 advantage. Said advantage would not hold for the long, as the Dodgers would seven runs over the next three innings. For the season as a whole, the 23-year-old shortstop is hitting .265/.339/.398 with two homers and six RBI over 76 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:04 pm
  • Gyorko belts 28th home run in win over Reds
    Jedd Gyorko hit his 28th homer of the season in Thursday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Gyorko connected with a Dan Straily pitch in the second inning for the solo dong, his only hit in four at-bats. The hit was just his second in his last 20 at-bats, as the 28-year-old has fallen into a bit of a slump as the season draws to a close. Even so, it will go down as a career year for Gyorko, who is hitting .238/.300/.482 with those 28 homers, 56 RBI and 54 runs scored in 125 games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:03 pm

  • Swanson hits third homer, Braves top Phillies
    Dansby Swanson hit his third home run of the season and the Braves bested the Phillies 5-2 on Thursday.

    Advice: Swanson hit the solo shot in the sixth inning to pull the Braves even at 1-1, and he also drew a leadoff walk that kicked off a four-run eighth inning to put the game out of reach. Just a little over a year removed from being the No. 1 overall draft pick, the 22-year-old has held his own through 35 games in the majors, batting .300/.353/.442 with three homers, 17 RBI, 19 runs scored and three steals. He may actually be doing himself a small disservice by performing so well -- with 120 at-bats under his belt, Swanson could actually lose his rookie status heading into next season, thus precluding him from possibly vying for the Rookie of the Year honor, if he accrues 10 more at-bats over the Braves' final three games -- but the bigger picture is that Swanson could be a star as early as 2017. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:46 pm
  • Bogaerts crushes 21st homer against Yankees
    Xander Bogaerts hit his 21st home run of the season in Thursday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Bogaerts jumped on a CC Sabathia pitch in the fourth inning for a solo homer. It was his only hit in the game, and the only run the Sox could manage against Sabathia and company. The 23-year-old continues to add to his strong 2016 numbers, as he's now hitting .294/.355/.445 with 21 homers, 89 RBI, 114 runs scored and 13 steals. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:21 pm
  • Castro swats RBI double, scores against Sox
    Starlin Castro went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored in a win over the Red Sox on Thursday.

    Advice: Since returning from a hamstring strain, Castro was 1-for-9 in three games before Thursday's two-hit night. After being dealt from the Cubs to the Yankees in exchange for Adam Warren last winter -- a deal that looks like a coup for the Yankees now -- the 26-year-old has had a strong year in 2016, batting .272/.302/.436 with 21 homers, 70 RBI and 63 runs scored. He'll be back as the Yankees' everyday second baseman in 2017, barring the unforeseen. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:16 pm

  • Corey Seager not in Thursday's lineup
    Corey Seager is not in the Dodgers' lineup Thursday.

    Advice: The Dodgers are also resting Adrian Gonzalez, Yasmani Grandal, Chase Utley and Josh Reddick against Padres lefty Christian Friedrich. They have Charlie Culberson at shortstop, Howie Kendrick at first base, Enrique Hernandez at second and Yasiel Puig in right field. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:39 pm
  • Tyler Saladino (back) ruled out for season
    Tyler Saladino (back) has been ruled out for the season.

  • Marcus Semien hits 27th homer
    Marcus Semien hit his 27th homer Wednesday against the Angels.

    Advice: It was a three-run shot, giving him 73 RBI. Last year, Semien struggled mightily went men on base and had just 45 RBI despite hitting 15 homers and playing in 155 games. This year, he hasn't been any better offensively according to his rate starts (his OBP is down while his homers are up), but that he is much improved with men on has made him more valuable. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:26 pm
  • Villar hits lead-off home run on Wednesday
    Jonathan Villar went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: He led off the game with a solo shot to center field and drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in the second inning. His .285 batting average has cooled a bit as he was over .300 for a good chunk of the season. He has 19 home runs, 63 RBI and 91 runs scored. Villar leads the major leagues with 60 stolen bases.

  • Chris Owings steals pair of bases in victory
    Chris Owings went 2-for-3 with a run scored and two steals in Wednesday's rain-shortened win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Owings and leadoff hitter Jean Segura combined to collect five of the Diamondbacks' eight hits on the watery evening. The five-inning game was called following a long delay. With the two steals, Owings has swiped an even 20 on the season. That mark tops the career-best 18 that he notched in 2015. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:13 pm

  • Swanson goes 2-for-3 with two RBI, three runs
    Dansby Swanson finished 2-for-3 with two RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base as the Braves crushed the Phillies on Wednesday.

    Advice: He tripled to drive in the game's first run in the second inning, then doubled home a run in the third inning. He also walked in the game. The 22-year-old rookie has hit the ground running in the first 34 games of his career. He has a .299/.349/.419 batting line in 130 plate appearances. He has a very bright future.

  • Nunez (hamstring) questionable for LAD series
    Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) is questionable for this weekend's series against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Nunez initially injured his right hamstring on a slide in Sunday's game against the Padres and subsequently underwent an MRI. While nothing major was discovered, there is obviously still some lingering discomfort. The newly-acquired Gordon Beckham could start in his place at third base if Nunez is unable to go this weekend. Conor Gillaspie is another option. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:50 pm

  • Bregman (hamstring) batting second on Wed.
    Alex Bregman (hamstring) is batting second for the Astros on Wednesday against the Mariners.

    Advice: It will be the first start for Bregman since September 14, when he suffered a right hamstring strain while running the bases. Houston initially thought the 22-year-old top prospect might be done for the year, but he connected for a pinch-hit RBI single on Tuesday night to spark a big rally against Seattle and he will start at third base on Wednesday afternoon.

  • Bregman (hamstring) returns with RBI single
    Alex Bregman (hamstring) smacked a pinch-hit RBI single Tuesday in the Astros' defeat of the Mariners.

    Advice: It was the first plate appearance in nearly two weeks for Bregman, who had been sidelined since September 14 because of a right hamstring strain. The initial diagnosis came with a timetable of 4-6 weeks, suggesting he was finished for the remainder of the 2016 regular season, but the 22-year-old top prospect made a swift recovery and could even start a few games before all is said and done. Bregman has a cool .797 OPS with eight home runs, 33 RBI, and 31 runs scored through his first 48 major league games. Impressive stuff all around. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:58 am

  • Anderson has homer, three RBI in Sox' rout
    Tim Anderson went 3-for-5 with a homer, three RBI and two runs scored in the White Sox' 13-6 beatdown of the Rays on Tuesday.

    Advice: Anderson did damage with each of his three hits, collecting an RBI single in the first inning before swatting a run-scoring double in the second. He then capped it off with a solo shot, his eighth of the season, in the eighth inning. It's been a successful rookie campaign for the 23-year-old, who is hitting .278/.300/.411 with those eight homers, 28 RBI, 54 runs scored and 10 steals in 94 games overall. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:42 pm
  • Querecuto smacks two-run triple for first hit
    Juniel Querecuto got his first major league hit in style Tuesday, swatting a two-run triple in a loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Querecuto got the start at second base and batted ninth in the contest, and in his last at-bat he lined a pitch to left-center field that eluded center fielder Leury Garcia -- and was aided by Garcia's shenanigans that followed -- for his first big league hit, his first triple and his first two runs batted in. He later scored his first run as well. Querecuto doesn't appear to have a long major league career ahead of him, but nobody can take Tuesday away from him. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:38 pm
  • Aledmys Diaz honors JF16 with grand slam
    Aledmys Diaz paid tribute to his friend Jose Fernandez on Tuesday, hitting a grand slam en route to the Cardinals' 12-5 drubbing of the Reds.

    Advice: Diaz, who was away from the Cardinals on Monday to be with Fernandez's family in Miami, smacked a Robert Stephenson fastball into the left-center field bleachers to give the Cardinals a 5-2 lead in the bottom fourth inning Tuesday night at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. As he touched home plate he pointed to the sky in remembrance of his boyhood friend, and again Diaz gestured to the heavens after a curtain call from Cardinals fans. The 26-year-old shortstop will surely be playing with a heavy heart for as long as the Cards stay in it, but Tuesday was a moment he likely won't forget. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:13 pm

  • Peralta homers, drives in four against Reds
    Jhonny Peralta went 3-for-4 with a home run, four RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Peralta hit a three-run jack in the fifth inning, one of the Cardinals' five home runs on the night. The homer was a big one for Peralta personally, as he hadn't gone yard since September 6. The 34-year-old has just eight homers and 29 RBI in total through 77 games, and he's slashing a pedestrian .259/.307/.415 in those games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:03 pm

The 25-year-old has 20 home runs, 66 RBI, 77 runs scored and 10 steals to go with a .251/.320/.412 overall this year. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:56 pm

    Advice: He'll be shut down for another couple days and could very well be done for the year, unless the Mets can muster a deep postseason run.

    Advice: That's not so good for the old stolen base numbers there, Jonathan. Still, he's up to 18 homers this year after hitting 10 over 589 at-bats in parts of three seasons with the Astros. There was no doubt he'd steal a whole bunch of bases if the playing time was to be had, but the power outburst didn't seem so likely. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:21 pm

  • Corey Seager smahes game-tying home run
    Corey Seager smashed a game-tying home run in the ninth inning on Sunday, which ultimately led to the Dodgers defeating the Rockies 4-3.

    Advice: Seager tied the game at 2-2 with a run-scoring triple in the seventh inning. He then tagged Rockies closer Adam Ottavino for the game-tying blast with two outs in the ninth inning to force extras, where Charlie Culberson socked a walk-off homer in the 10th. Seager finished the day 3-for-5 and is now hitting a robust .313/.371/.523 with 26 homers and 72 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:23 pm
  • Aledmys Diaz not in Cardinals lineup Sunday
    Aledmys Diaz is not in the Cardinals starting lineup for Sunday night's game against the Cubs.

    Advice: It's unclear if Diaz was going to sit out anyways, or if manager Mike Matheny is giving him a day to grieve after his childhood friend and neighbor, Jose Fernandez, was killed in a tragic boating accident early Sunday morning. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:54 pm

    Advice: He was scratched from Friday's lineup with back discomfort and is expected to miss the entire weekend series in Cleveland.

  • 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 Saturday, 1:46 pm

  • Starlin Castro (hamstring) could run Saturday
    Starlin Castro (hamstring) will hit in an indoor batting cage Friday and hopes to do some running Saturday.

    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

  • 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

  • Bregman (hamstring) ran on treadmill Thursday
    Alex Bregman (hamstring) did some running on a treadmill Thursday.

    Advice: It was at a very low intensity, but it was the first time he's done any running since suffering a right hamstring strain on September 14. Bregman said Thursday that he's "hoping to come back sooner rather than later and trying to do anything I can to help contribute," but the reality is that the Astros would probably have to make a deep playoff run for him to have a chance to return.

  • 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

  • Cozart (knee) doubtful for remainder of 2016
    Zack Cozart (knee) is unlikely to play again this season.

    Advice: Cozart has not been officially shut down, but Reds manager Bryan Price more or less shut the door Wednesday on a potential return. The 31-year-old shortstop has been sidelined by right knee soreness since September 10. Prior to the injury, he was hitting .252/.308/.425 with 16 homers and 50 RBI over 464 at-bats. The 31-year-old shortstop carries one more season of contractual control in 2017. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:03 pm

  • Padres designate Nick Noonan for assignment
    Padres designated INF Nick Noonan for assignment.

    Advice: Noonan saw 105 at-bats with the Giants in 2013, but has only received a combined 40 major league at-bats in the three years since. The 27-year-old infielder managed just three hits in 18 at-bats in limited action with the Padres during the 2016 campaign. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:24 pm

  • Wilmer Flores (wrist) won't play on Thursday
    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

  • Aledmys Diaz (arm) back in STL lineup Wed.
    Aledmys Diaz is back in the Cardinals' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon at Coors Field.

    Advice: Diaz is still trying to rebuild some strength in his throwing arm after missing six weeks with a fractured right thumb, so Jedd Gyorko took a turn at shortstop on Tuesday.

  • Cards' Diaz having issues with arm strength
    Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Tuesday that Aledmys Diaz is having issues with arm strength.

    Advice: Diaz just missed six weeks with a hairline fracture in his right thumb and hasn't had much time to get back into the groove of things like infield throws. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said trainers noticed Diaz altering his throwing motion from the shortstop position in Monday's series opener at Coors Field. Jedd Gyorko will start at short on Tuesday, though Diaz is expected to return Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:41 pm

    Aledmys Diaz is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday night in Colorado.

    Advice: Jedd Gyorko will start at shortstop and bat second versus Rockies left-hander Jorge De La Rosa. Diaz went 0-for-5 with a strikeout in Monday's series opener at Coors Field but still boasts an .884 OPS over his first 103 major league games. Maybe the thumb is still an issue?
