  • Justin Turner not in Monday's lineup vs. COL
    Justin Turner is not in Monday's lineup against the Rockies.

    Advice: Turner will sit for the series opener at Coors Field, which is unfortunate news for fantasy owners who were excited about the matchup. Rob Segedin is getting the start at third base and will bat eighth against Jon Gray. Rotoworld.com 36 minutes ago
  • Brett Gardner not in Monday's lineup
    Brett Gardner is not in Monday's lineup against the Royals.

    Advice: Gardner will take a seat against right-hander Dillon Gee. Aaron Hicks will make the start in left field and bat second. Rotoworld.com 56 minutes ago
  • Uehara (pectoral) could return next Monday
    Koji Uehara (pectoral) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as next Monday.

    Advice: Great news for Uehara, who threw 20 pitches to hitters in a simulated workout on Monday. He still has two bullpen sessions coming up, but things are moving in the right direction. Uehara has been sidelined since July 20 with a pectoral strain, but his return would be a big boost to the back-end of Boston's bullpen. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:46 pm

  • Tillman (shoulder) throws off flat ground
    Chris Tillman (shoulder) felt good throwing off flat ground on Monday and will do so again on Wednesday.

    Advice: Assuming he feels good, he'll likely return to mound work from there. Tillman has been out since August 20 with right shoulder inflammation, but the hopes is that he could be able to rejoin the O's rotation around September 10. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:33 pm

  • Jacob deGrom to make next start Fri. vs. Nats
    Jacob deGrom will return to the Mets' rotation Friday against the Nationals.

    Advice: DeGrom has struggled over his last two starts and will be skipped in the rotation on Monday in order to give him a bit of a breather. His return will push Noah Syndergaard's next start back to Saturday. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:15 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 Today, 1:08 pm

  • Rangers release OF Drew Stubbs
    Rangers released OF Drew Stubbs.

    Advice: Stubbs refused an assignment to Triple-A Round Rock after getting pushed off the Rangers' 40-man roster last week. He'll officially become a free agent once he clears irrevocable release waivers. The 31-year-old outfielder is hitting .259/.343/.414 in 67 plate appearances this season between Atlanta and Arlington. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:59 pm

  • Uehara (pectoral) faces hitters off mound
    Koji Uehara (pectoral) faced hitters on the Fenway Park mound Monday afternoon in Boston.

    Advice: Uehara threw around 20 pitches in the simulated workout. He appears to be nearing a return to the Red Sox bullpen after missing the last five weeks with a pectoral strain. The exact timetable hasn't been revealed. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:45 pm

  • Ryan Zimmerman getting the day off Mon.
    Ryan Zimmerman is getting the day off Monday.

    Advice: It's just a routine day of maintenance for the veteran first baseman. Clint Robinson will start at first base and bat seventh versus Phillies righty Jake Thompson. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:40 pm
  • Gleyber Torres paces Yankees with four hits
    Yankees SS prospect Gleyber Torres notched four hits in Sunday's win for High-A Tampa.

    Advice: He also scored three runs as the Yankees cruised to an 8-2 win over visiting Brevard County. The 19-year-old has seen mixed results since joining Tampa last month. In 28 games, he's hit .266 with 18 runs, six doubles, two homers, 19 RBI and a pair of steals. Torres offers a rare blend of speed and power (particularly for a shortstop) but he's still at least a couple years away from making it in the big leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:30 pm

  • Amed Rosario explodes for three hits Sunday
    Mets SS prospect Amed Rosario tallied three hits Sunday in Double-A Binghamton's loss to Bowie.

    Advice: Rosario plated both Mets runs while collecting his 13th triple of the season. The 20-year-old has enjoyed a breakout year, hitting .319 with 22 doubles, 67 RBI and 16 steals across 445 at-bats for Binghamton and High-A St. Lucie. He's emerged as the Mets' top prospect and could arrive in the big leagues sooner than expected. Asdrubal Cabrera still has two years remaining on his contract so the Mets don't have to rush Rosario to the majors, though he could force the issue with another strong year in 2017.

  • Ozzie Albies tallied three hits in Sunday's win
    Braves SS prospect Ozzie Albies broke out for three hits Sunday in a win for Double-A Mississippi.

    Advice: His two-run triple put the Braves ahead for good in the ninth inning. The 19-year-old has hit an impressive .389 during his four-game hitting streak. Albies spent some time in Triple-A earlier this year but was sent down after hitting only .248 over 222 at-bats. He's looked more comfortable in the Southern League, batting .323 with 49 runs and 19 steals over 75 games for Mississippi. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:39 am

  • Nats send Lucas Giolito back to AAA 'Cuse
    Nationals optioned RHP Lucas Giolito to Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: Giolito yielded four runs over five innings Sunday in a loss to the Rockies while showing diminished fastball velocity. He now has a 5.62 ERA in 16 innings (four starts) this year at the major league level, but the Nats will likely bring him back after Syracuse's season ends. The 22-year-old right-hander remains one of the top pitching prospects in baseball. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:36 am

  • Latos to be added to Nats roster Thursay
    Mat Latos will be added to the Nationals' active roster on Thursday, per FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

    Advice: Latos could have opted out of his contract with Washington on Monday, but he has agreed to stay on until major league rosters expand on September 1. He will then officially join the Nationals, presumably in a long relief or swingman role. The veteran right-hander holds a 1.06 ERA in 17 innings (three starts) with Triple-A Syracuse, but the peripherals aren't nearly as promising. He was cut by the White Sox in June after allowing 31 runs -- 29 earned -- over his last 36 innings. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:44 am

  • Jose De Leon whiffs 13 batters at AAA OKC
    Jose De Leon tallied 13 strikeouts over 7 2/3 scoreless innings Sunday with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: De Leon walked none and yielded just four hits in the brilliant outing, which helped the OKC Dodgers clinch their second straight Pacific Coast League American Northern Division title. The 24-year-old right-hander now boasts a 2.61 ERA, 0.938 WHIP, and 111/20 K/BB ratio in 86 1/3 innings (16 starts) this season at Triple-A. It's a surprise he's not already in the majors. Maybe it will happen next month. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:29 am

  • Giolito surrenders pair of homers in defeat
    Lucas Giolito was victimized by the long ball in Sunday's loss to the Rockies, yielding a pair of dingers and four total runs over five innings.

    Advice: Giolito surrendered two homers in a three-run third inning, with Nolan Arenado striking for a two-run shot and David Dahl making it back-to-back dingers with a solo tater of his own. The 22-year-old right-hander has now surrendered four runs (on the nose) in three of his first four major league starts. The Nationals have yet to commit to another start for Giolito, but even if he does see another opportunity, he holds no fantasy value at this juncture of his young career.

  • Tillman (shoulder) moves up session to Monday
    Chris Tillman's (shoulder) bullpen session has been moved up from Tuesday to Monday.

    Advice: The right-hander has dealt with shoulder discomfort for the last two weeks but has experienced rapid improvement recently. Tillman will still require a rehab start before rejoining the Orioles' rotation, so the earliest he could return is September 9-10. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:52 am

  • Neil Walker (back) absent from Mets' lineup
    Neil Walker (back) is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Walker has had a minor setback with the back injury that kept him out for four games earlier this month. The hope is that he'll be fine after one day of rest. Kelly Johnson is filling in at second base. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:49 am

  • Lucas Giolito recalled from Triple-A
    Nationals recalled RHP Lucas Giolito from Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: Giolito will start on Sunday versus the Rockies. He's posted a 4.91 ERA and 5/9 K/BB ratio over 11 innings with the big club this season, making him a risky streaming option. Giolito has pitched well of late for Syracuse with just two runs allowed over his last 14 frames. He's not guaranteed another start beyond Sunday's. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:42 am

  • Lucas Giolito to start Sunday vs. Rockies
    Lucas Giolito will start Sunday against the Rockies.

    Advice: As expected. The Nats needed someone to fill in for Reynaldo Lopez, who was just sent down to the minor leagues. Giloito's first stint in the majors didn't go as well as hoped but the right-hander still boasts impressive velocity and a devastating curve ball. There's no guarantee Giolito will get more than a turn or two with Joe Ross (shoulder) and Stephen Strasburg (elbow) both on the comeback trail. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:52 pm

  • Uehara (pectoral) throws 53 pitches on Friday
    Koji Uehara (pectoral) threw 53 pitches off a mound on Friday.

    Advice: ESPN's Scott Lauber noted that Uehara was throwing with "good intensity." Uehara is scheduled to throw again Monday and could face live hitters for the first time since straining his pectoral muscle shortly after the All-Star break. He'll likely share setup duties with Brad Ziegler upon his return. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:31 pm

  • Chris Tillman unlikely to need a rehab start
    Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Saturday that Chris Tillman (shoulder) is unlikely to require a minor league rehab start before rejoining the club's rotation.

    Advice: Tillman was placed on the disabled list earlier in the week due to shoulder inflammation, but he's hoping to return as soon as he's eligible. The O's ace has won 15 games this season while compiling a 3.76 ERA and 126/58 K/BB ratio across 153 innings this season. Ubaldo Jimenez is holding down his spot in the rotation in the meantime.

  • Mets will skip Jacob deGrom's next start
    Mets manager Terry Collins confirmed Friday that the club will skip Jacob deGrom's scheduled start on Monday.

    Advice: The right-hander has been knocked around in each of his last two starts and the Mets believe they have found a mechanical flaw that can be blamed for his struggles. They'll give him a nice extended rest while attempting to fix the issue before he rejoins the rotation. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:23 pm
  • Mets likely to skip Jacob deGrom's next start
    Mets manager Terry Collins said Friday that there's a good chance the club will skip Jacob deGrom's next start.

    Advice: Collins had previous mentioned the possibility of deGrom's next outing being pushed back, but it appears he'll get even more rest. The righty has been lit up for 13 runs over his last two starts, so a little break would probably do him some good. Sean Gilmartin, Gabriel Ynoa, Logan Verrett, Rafael Montero and Seth Lugo on short rest are possibilities to start in deGrom's spot on Monday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:16 pm
  • Neil Walker returns from paternity leave
    Mets activated 2B Neil Walker from the paternity leave list.

    Advice: Walker and his wife welcomed their first child earlier this week. T.J. Rivera has been optioned in a corresponding move. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:55 am

  • Tillman expected to throw on flat ground Tuesday
    Chris Tillman (shoulder) is expected to throw on flat ground on Tuesday.

    Advice: Shoulder inflammation sent Tillman to the disabled list earlier this week but he's hoping to return after the minimum 15 days. The right-hander has easily been Baltimore's best starting pitcher this year with 15 wins and a respectable 3.76 ERA over 26 outings. Ubaldo Jimenez has absorbed Tillman's spot in the starting rotation. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:58 pm

  • Lucas Giolito expected to return on Sunday
    Lucas Giolito is expected to start Sunday against the Rockies.

    Advice: He'll take over for Reynaldo Lopez, who was dropped from the rotation and sent down to the minor leagues on Thursday. Giolito might not be long for the rotation with Stephen Strasburg (elbow) and Joe Ross (shoulder) both close to returning, but with rosters expanding soon, the Nats can afford to keep him around as a reliever. The right-hander made three starts for Washington last month but was sent down to work on his control after allowing nine walks in only 11 innings of work. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:53 pm

  • Rangers designate Stubbs for assignment
    Rangers designated OF Drew Stubbs for assignment.

    Advice: The Rangers needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Carlos Gomez, who is making his Texas debut Thursday against Cleveland. The well-traveled 31-year-old has hit .259 with three homers and eight steals across 59 at-bats this season. There's a good chance he'll get snatched up on waivers. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:56 pm

  • Collins thinks deGrom looks 'run down'
    The Mets are considering pushing back Jacob deGrom's next start.

    Advice: Manager Terry Collins said the right-hander looks "run down." DeGrom seems to have hit a wall over his last two starts, going 0-2 during that stretch with a miserable 12.10 ERA. If Steven Matz (shoulder) returns from the disabled list on Tuesday as expected, the Mets can probably push deGrom back a day. Including the playoffs, deGrom has logged 359 innings since the start of 2015. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:40 pm
  • Justin Turner hits 24th homer
    Justin Turner went 2-for-3 and homered to account for the only run in the Dodgers' win over the Giants on Wednesday.

    Advice: Turner is up to 24 homers in 485 plate appearances this year. For the Mets in 2011, he had four homers in 487 plate appearances. Legitimately one of the NL's best players the last three years, Turner is going to be a fascinating free agent this winter. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:07 pm
  • Jacob deGrom gives up five runs in loss
    Jacob deGrom surrendered five runs and 12 hits in 4 2/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: DeGrom has followed up a couple of awesome months with a pair of ugly starts the last six days. He gave up three homers tonight after allowing a total of 12 in 22 starts coming in. It doesn't seem like his stuff has fallen off suddenly, so let's assume he'll bounce back next time out when he faces the Marlins. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:29 pm
  • Amed Rosario supplies three hits in victory
    Mets SS prospect Amed Rosario clubbed three hits Tuesday in a win for Double-A Binghamton.

    Advice: He doubled twice and drove in two runs as the Mets' cruised to a 9-1 victory over Hartford. The 20-year-old has lifted his average from .319 to .327 by going 8-for-21 (.381) over his last five games. The Mets' top prospect has done it all this year with 22 doubles, 12 triples and 15 steals. With the year winding down, Rosario probably won't arrive in the big leagues until some time next season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:49 am

  • O's place Chris Tillman (shoulder) on the DL
    Orioles placed RHP Chris Tillman on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 21, with right shoulder inflammation.

    Advice: He is eligible to return from the disabled list September 5 and the O's are hoping he will be ready on that date. Tillman missed a start one week ago after complaining of shoulder discomfort and then got lit up for six earned runs over just two innings Saturday versus the Astros. That blunder aside, he has been the Orioles' most reliable pitcher in 2016 by far. Ubaldo Jimenez and his 6.94 ERA will start in Tillman's place Thursday versus the Nationals.

  • Tillman (shoulder) likely headed to 15-day DL
    Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Tuesday that Chris Tillman (shoulder) is likely headed to the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Tillman has been bothered by shoulder discomfort for over a week and had a bad day of side work on Tuesday. He definitely won't be making his next scheduled start Thursday against the Nationals. Look for something more official out of Baltimore on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:42 pm

  • Uehara (pectoral) throws bullpen session
    Koji Uehara (pectoral) threw a successful 32-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday.

    Advice: He'll do similar workouts Friday and Monday before facing live hitters. Uehara has been on the disabled list since July 20 because of a pectoral strain. He could make it back to the majors around the middle of September if everything goes smoothly from here. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:20 pm

  • Tillman (shoulder) questionable for Thursday
    Chris Tillman (shoulder) is now questionable for his Thursday start against the Nationals.

    Advice: Tillman has been bothered by shoulder discomfort for the last few weeks and apparently had a bad between-starts workout on Tuesday afternoon. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he'll make a decision about the scheduled Thursday start on Wednesday. There probably won't be an update before then. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:32 pm

  • Uehara (pectoral) to throw off mound
    Koji Uehara (pectoral) will throw off a mound on Tuesday.

    Advice: It will be his first time doing so since landing on the disabled list with a pectoral strain about a month ago. The Red Sox have conceded that it's an unusual injury, but Uehara has a chance to make it back in September if he can avoid setbacks. Rotoworld.com Aug 22, 2:28 pm

  • Justin Turner out of Dodgers lineup Monday
    Justin Turner is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup Monday afternoon against the Reds.

    Advice: Rob Segedin is starting at third base and batting eighth versus Reds right-hander Homer Bailey. This appears to be a routine day of rest for Turner, who's batting .320 with a 1.033 OPS so far in the second half. Rotoworld.com Aug 22, 7:04 am
  • A.J. Achter recalled from Triple-A
    Angels recalled RHP A.J. Achter from Triple-A Salt Lake.

  • 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. Kelly Johnson and Wilmer Flores should handle second base while Walker is away. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 7:08 am

  • Zimmerman goes 3-for-4 with a solo homer
    Ryan Zimmerman smacked a solo homer on a 3-for-4 night at the plate on Saturday versus the Braves.

    Advice: The home run came in the second inning to produce the first of his team's 11 runs in the slugfest. He ended up with two RBI and two runs scored. He is in the midst of a disappointing season, batting .229 with 13 homers and 40 RBI in 340 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com Aug 20, 8:29 pm
  • Tillman coughs up six runs in two innings
    Chris Tillman walked five batters on the way to giving up six earned runs in just two innings in a loss to the Astros on Saturday.

    Advice: He couldn't find the plate and failed to strike anyone out. He gave up a two-run homer to the second batter of the game. He pitched into the third inning but was pulled after hitting the first batter and walking the next three to bring in a run without a bat ever hitting the ball. Tillman was pitching on nine days rest after being pushed back due to a tender shoulder. He has been very effective this year after a down season last year. Tillman now has a 15-5 record and 3.76 ERA. Rotoworld.com Aug 20, 7:59 pm

  • Nationals activate Ryan Zimmerman from DL
    Nationals activated 1B Ryan Zimmerman from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Zimmerman has been rehabbing his injured wrist at Triple-A Syracuse in recent days and feels he's ready to return. The 31-year-old is hitting just .222/.284/.394 with 12 homers and 38 RBI in 302 at-bats in what has been another injury-plagued season. Rotoworld.com Aug 20, 12:17 pm
  • Neil Walker returns to Mets lineup Saturday
    Neil Walker (back) has returned to the Mets starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: He sat out the previous four games due to stiffness in his lower back. The 30-year-old is hitting .279/.341/.470 with 22 homers and 54 RBI in 440 plate appearances on the season. Rotoworld.com Aug 20, 11:00 am

  • Brett Gardner not in Yankees lineup Friday
    Brett Gardner is not in the Yankees starting lineup on Friday night against the Angels.

    Advice: It would have been a premium matchup against soft-tossing right-hander Jered Weaver, but Gardner will sit this one out. He has been battling a right ankle injury in recent days and is also losing playing time to the exciting youth movement going on in New York. Rotoworld.com Aug 19, 4:10 pm
  • Ryan Zimmerman (wrist) to be activated Sat.
    Ryan Zimmerman (wrist) will be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

    Advice: He was originally slated to come off the DL Friday, but after a day of travel the Nats decided to push him back a day. Jose Lobaton (elbow) will also be activated on Saturday instead. Rotoworld.com Aug 19, 2:37 pm
  • Giants rock deGrom for eight runs in 5 IP
    Jacob deGrom was shelled in Thursday's 10-7 loss to the Giants, surrendering eight runs on 13 hits over five innings.

    Advice: After tossing three scoreless frames, deGrom ran into trouble and then some. He coughed up five runs in the fourth inning and another three in the fifth before his evening was mercifully ended. The start bumped his ERA from 2.30 to a still-respectable 2.73 mark. DeGrom also holds a 1.11 WHIP and 134/30 K/BB ratio across 22 starts. Thursday's result wasn't particularly appealing, but sometimes you just don't have it. He will try to rebound in a road date with the Cardinals next time he toes the rubber. Rotoworld.com Aug 18, 10:51 pm
  • Turner homers in second straight versus Phils
    Justin Turner went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run against the Phillies on Thursday.

    Advice: Stop me if you've heard this one: Justin Turner is on fire. That's not a ginger joke, but rather a nod to the 31-year-old's recent stretch in which he's hit four homers in his last eight games, including two in a row. Turner now has 23 homers on the year -- 20 of which have come since June 7 -- and 72 RBI, batting .278/.345/.516 through 113 games. He's been an incredible find for the Dodgers these past three seasons. Rotoworld.com Aug 18, 9:03 pm
