  • Shelby Miller starting Monday versus Marlins
    Shelby Miller is starting Monday against the Marlins.

    Advice: Miller will jump ahead in the Braves' rotation to fill in for Michael Foltynewicz, who has been scratched from his scheduled turn due to fever and viral symptoms. 17 minutes ago
  • Foltynewicz scratched Monday; Miller starting
    Michael Foltynewicz has been scratched from his scheduled start Monday due to fever and viral symptoms.

    Advice: Shelby Miller is going to take the mound instead against the Marlins. He'll be pitching on regular rest because of Thursday's team off day. Foltynewicz, who owns a rough 5.71 ERA in 86 2/3 innings this year, should be ready to rejoin the rotation later in the week. 19 minutes ago
  • Steve Johnson expected to join O's on Tues.
    Steve Johnson is expected to join the Orioles on Tuesday.

    Advice: He'll be part of the club's first wave of September callups. Johnson has not appeared in a major league game since 2013, but he boasts a 2.30 ERA, 1.079 WHIP, and 67/16 K/BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings this season at Triple-A Norfolk. The 28-year-old right-hander should do well in a middle relief role over the final month of the 2015 campaign. Today, 9:05 am

  • Alex Wood whiffs seven in tough luck loss
    Alex Wood pitched well in a losing effort against the Cubs on Sunday, allowing just two runs on eight hits over his six innings.

    Advice: Wood racked up seven strikeouts on the night while issuing one free pass. The only damage against him, and in the entire ballgame, came on a two-run homer off the bat of Kris Bryant in the first inning. He was simply out-dueled by Jake Arrieta who was brilliant on the other side of the diamond. He'll again go in search of his 10th victory when he takes the hill against the Padres in San Diego on Friday. Yesterday, 7:52 pm
    7:10 pm vs SF
  • Reds option David Holmberg to Triple-A
    Reds optioned RHP David Holmberg to Triple-A Louisville.

    Advice: He had been scheduled to pitch on Monday, but Michael Lorenzen will take his place. The 24-year-old hurler has had a rough season at the big league level, compiling a 7.62 ERA and 1.84 WHIP across 28 1/3 innings. He should be back at some point in September. Yesterday, 2:37 pm

  • McCullers walks four in loss to Twins
    Lance McCullers pitched unevenly in Sunday's loss to the Twins, walking four while allowing three runs on four hits over six innings.

    Advice: Despite some control woes, McCullers managed to hold the Twins to one run heading into the sixth inning. At which point, Eduardo Nunez launched a two-run homer against the 21-year-old right-hander. He'll carry a still-strong 3.21 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 93/32 K/BB ratio (over 89 2/3 innings) into his next scheduled start, a home rematch with these same Twinkies. Yesterday, 2:21 pm
  • Lamb whiffs eight Brewers in loss
    John Lamb pitched well in Sunday's loss to the Brewers, allowing two runs on five hits over six innings.

    Advice: Lamb struck out eight without walking a batter. Runs scored on a Ryan Braun solo homer in the first inning and a Jonathan Lucroy RBI single in the third, but he otherwise kept the Brewer offense quiet. Through four major league starts, he holds a tough 5.24 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 29/5 K/BB ratio over 22 1/3 innings. The strikeout rate is certainly spicy, though the rest of his numbers are less exciting. Lamb will head home to face these same Brewers in his next scheduled start. Yesterday, 1:58 pm
  • Sean Manaea extends unbeaten streak
    Athletics LHP prospect Sean Manaea tossed seven shutout frames Saturday in a win for Double-A Midland.

    Advice: He matched a season-high by throwing 102 pitches. The 23-year-old has gone 5-0 with a 2.21 ERA during his seven-game unbeaten streak. Opponents have hit .223 against him over that span with 44 strikeouts in 148 at-bats. Manaea was acquired from Kansas City last month in the Ben Zobrist trade. Yesterday, 1:55 pm

  • De La Rosa spins diamonds against Pirates
    Jorge De La Rosa pitched beautifully in Sunday's win over the Pirates, firing six innings of scoreless ball.

    Advice: De La Rosa allowed just four hits while striking out seven and walking one on the afternoon. The Pirates couldn't even find an extra-base hit against the 34-year-old southpaw. For the season, he's the owner of a 4.40 ERA and 1.40 WHIP. He'll try to duplicate Sunday's results in a home date with the Giants next time out. Yesterday, 1:39 pm
  • Syndergaard stumbles late in a no-decision
    Noah Syndergaard fell apart late in Sunday's win over the Red Sox, taking a no-decision in allowing four runs in 6 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Syndergaard allowed his first runs on David Ortiz's two-run home run in the sixth. He allowed an RBI double to Jackie Bradley, Jr. before departing, but reliever Hansel Robles allowed his inherited runner to score. All told, Syndergaard gave up six hits and a walk while striking out three. He now has a 3.31 ERA with a 1.14 WHIP and a 129/29 K/BB ratio over 122 1/3 innings. The right-hander is on track to face the Marlins in Miami next, but the Mets are aiming to limit his and Matt Harvey's innings the rest of the way. Yesterday, 1:22 pm
  • Alfredo Simon lit up by Blue Jays
    Alfredo Simon was torched for six runs on six hits -- including four home runs -- over five innings in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Simon never had a chance, serving up a couple dingers in the first, another one in the second and a final one in the fourth. The Blue Jays are creaming everyone these days, but this outing was a continuation of a rotten stretch for Simon, who has allowed at least four runs in 11 of his last 13 starts. He'll get the Indians next. Yesterday, 1:17 pm
  • Weaver hammered for 8 runs over 6 innings
    Jered Weaver lost to the Indians on Sunday, surrendering eight runs in six innings of work.

    Advice: The Indians hit a pair of RBI doubles in the first inning, but Weaver settled in with three scoreless innings. He slipped up again in the fifth, serving up a grand slam to Abraham Almonte. Overall, the right-hander gave up nine hits and walked four while striking out two. Weaver's awful 2015 season is almost over, as he carries a 4.94 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, and a 67/22 K/BB ratio over 125 2/3 innings. He'll try to rebound in a home start versus the Rangers next. Yesterday, 1:00 pm
  • Tim Lincecum (hips) suffers setback
    Tim Lincecum (hips) recently had a setback while rehabbing at the Giants' spring training complex.

    Advice: Lincecum was diagnosed with a degenerative hip condition in mid-July but will now send his MRIs to another specialist. According to Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News, the right-hander is "exploring all treatment options." His status for the remainder of the season is up in the air. Yesterday, 11:27 am

  • Matt Moore to rejoin Rays' rotation in Sept.
    Matt Moore will rejoin the Rays' rotation when rosters expand in September.

    Advice: Moore was awful in six starts with the big club but has rebounded at Triple-A Durham, posting a 3.30 ERA and 43/8 K/BB ratio over 30 innings. That includes a 16-strikeout game two starts ago. It's unclear who Moore will replace in the rotation, although he's on the same schedule as Erasmo Ramirez. "It seems Matt is in a really good place, and to his credit, he went down there and worked on some things we thought he needed to work on, and he also agreed,'' manager Kevin Cash said. Yesterday, 9:06 am

  • Felix Hernandez to have next turn skipped
    Felix Hernandez will have his next turn in the rotation skipped.

    Advice: Vidal Nuno will start on Monday in Houston instead. King Felix pitched well his last time out but overall has struggled for the last month, so getting him some extra rest probably isn't a bad idea. "I did the same thing last year," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said. "I freshened my pitchers up, and Felix had the best September of his career. Everybody thought I was nuts when I did it. I’ll do it again because it’s the right thing to do." Yesterday, 8:48 am
  • Holmberg beat up again in loss to the Dodgers
    David Holmberg continued to struggle, taking the loss versus the Dodgers on Wednesday after surrendering six runs in only 3 2/3 innings of work.

    Advice: The Dodgers trounced Holmberg in a five-run fourth inning, which he could not complete, bashing three home runs. The right-hander gave up seven hits and two walks while striking out only one. The Reds may have to consider moving Holmberg out of the rotation, as he has an ugly 7.62 ERA with a 1.84 WHIP and a 15/16 K/BB ratio over 28 1/3 innings. If Holmberg starts again, his next one will come next week at Wrigley Field opposite the Cubs. Wednesday, 8:01 pm

  • Lincecum (hips) could rejoin team by Sept. 1
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tim Lincecum (hips) will be ready to return by September 1.

    Advice: Lincecum or Tim Hudson could even supplant Matt Cain in the rotation, Bochy hinted. Lincecum has been out since the end of June, first with a forearm contusion and later with degenerative hips. Even if he does return to the rotation, there is little left in the fantasy tank for Lincecum. Wednesday, 6:16 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Felix goes eight innings to earn 15th win
    Felix Hernandez allowed two runs over eight innings in a win over the Athletics on Wednesday.

    Advice: King Felix had been shaky in his previous two starts and didn't get off to a great beginning Wednesday after Billy Burns hit a first-pitch home run, but the right-hander settled down after that. He gave up just three hits, including another solo homer, on the afternoon, walking one while striking out seven. The win moved him to 15-8 on the year. Hernandez will look to improve on his 3.66 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 158/45 K/BB ratio in Monday's start at the Astros. Wednesday, 4:13 pm
  • Syndergaard wins despite allowing two homers
    Noah Syndergaard gave up a pair of two-run home runs to the Phillies over five innings on Tuesday but still got the win.

    Advice: Syndergaard had the bat-missing stuff, as he struck out nine, but the Phillies figured him out in the third inning as Freddy Galvis and Ryan Howard each hit two-run home runs. He gave up four hits and two walks overall. The Mets are alternating skipping Syndergaard's and Matt Harvey's starts the rest of the way, and it's Syndergaard's turn next. He'll ride the pine with a 3.19 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and a 126/28 K/BB ratio over 115 2/3 innings. Tuesday, 8:41 pm
  • Weaver wins despite unsharp outing vs. Tigers
    Jered Weaver lucked into a win on Tuesday against the Tigers, as he yielded six runs in 5 2/3 innings.

    Advice: The Angels scored four times in the first inning. Weaver gave it all back in the third when the Tigers plated four runs, three of which came in on a Miguel Cabrera double. James McCann hit a two-run home run in the sixth. Overall, Weaver gave up seven hits, walked none, and struck out one. He had been solid since returning from the disabled list before Tuesday's hiccup. On the season, Weaver has a 4.59 ERA, a 1.19 WHIP, and a 65/18 K/BB ratio over 119 2/3 innings. He'll take on the Indians in a road match-up next. Tuesday, 8:27 pm
  • Simon smoked by the Angels, taking 8th loss
    Alfredo Simon took his eighth loss of the season on Tuesday versus the Angels after surrendering eight runs in 4 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Simon was coming off of a one-hit shutout against the Rangers and things couldn't have gone any differently for him on Tuesday. The Angels jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning, then tacked on two runs in each of the fourth and fifth innings. Simon uncorked three wild pitches, walked four, allowed nine hits, and struck out two. The inconsistent right-hander sports an ugly 4.89 ERA with a 1.43 WHIP and a 93/53 K/BB ratio over 141 2/3 innings. Simon will have his hands full the next time he takes the mound, as he'll face the Blue Jays in Toronto. Tuesday, 8:24 pm
  • Wood limits Reds to one run in 5 2/3 innings
    Alex Wood was victorious on Tuesday, holding the Reds to one run over 5 2/3 innings.

    Advice: The lone run scored in his final inning courtesy Todd Frazier's RBI double. Wood gave up four hits and three walks while striking out four in what was arguably his best effort in five starts with the Dodgers. Overall this season, the lefty has a 3.70 ERA, a 1.41 WHIP, and a 111/50 K/BB ratio over 148 1/3 innings. Wood will face the Cubs at home in his next outing. Tuesday, 8:11 pm
    7:10 pm vs SF
  • Lamb allows 3 runs in 5 innings, loses to LAD
    John Lamb was saddled with the loss on Tuesday, giving up three runs in five innings to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Lamb allowed an RBI double to Yasiel Puig in the first inning and a two-run home run to Justin Turner in the third. They were two of five hits he served up along with three walks and six strikeouts. Major league hitters haven't had too much trouble hitting him in three starts thus far, as Lamb carries a 6.06 ERA, but he does have a 21/5 K/BB ratio over 16 1/3 innings. He'll look for better results when he takes the hill in Milwaukee against the Brewers. Tuesday, 8:09 pm
  • Foltynewicz hurt by Braves' defense in a loss
    Michael Foltynewicz allowed four runs (all unearned) in five innings, resulting in a loss to the Astros on Tuesday.

    Advice: Adonis Garcia made a fielding error in the first inning which helped the Rockies score twice. Garcia committed another error to allow Nick Hundley to reach to lead off the fourth, and the Rockies would go on to score twice more. It wasn't a bad effort by Foltynewicz, as he limited the opposition to five hits and a walk while striking out three. The inconsistent right-hander has a 5.71 ERA, a 1.63 WHIP, and a 77/29 K/BB ratio over 86 2/3 innings. He'll hope for better defense when he hosts the Marlins in his next start. Tuesday, 7:59 pm
  • De La Rosa leaky over 7 innings vs. Braves
    Jorge De La Rosa gave up five runs over seven innings, taking the loss on Monday against the Braves.

    Advice: Jonny Gomes bashed a two-run home run in the first and Adonis Garcia followed up with a solo shot in the fourth. Then Gomes hit an RBI single in the fifth and Nick Markakis added an RBI double in the sixth. Overall, De La Rosa gave up nine hits, walked four, and struck out three in an uninspiring start. He'll carry a 4.61 ERA, a 1.42 WHIP, and a 109/60 K/BB ratio over 123 innings into a start in Pittsburgh against the Pirates. Monday, 7:16 pm
  • McCullers returns to fan eight Dodgers
    Making his return to the Astros' rotation, Lance McCullers allowed two runs on eight hits over seven innings in Sunday's no-decision against the Dodgers.

    Advice: The Astros sent McCullers to Double-A Corpus Christi in early August as they look to limit his innings for the season. He returned against the Dodgers on Sunday and showed no ill-effects from the stay at Double-A, striking out eight without walking a batter. Runs scored in the first and fifth innings on a Justin Turner sacrifice fly and a wild pitch, respectively, but the 21-year-old right-hander otherwise kept the boys from Hollywood off the scoreboard. His work this season is a big reason why the Astros continue to lead the AL West and he now boasts a 3.12 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 87/28 K/BB ratio over 83 2/3 innings. Aug 23, 3:08 pm
  • Astros recall Lance McCullers for Sun. start
    Astros recalled RHP Lance McCullers from Double-A Corpus Christi.

    Advice: McCullers will rejoin the Astros' starting rotation on Sunday afternoon against the Dodgers. He was sent down to Double-A in early August in an attempt to limit his innings. The 21-year-old right-hander got shelled in last start for Houston, but he boasts a 3.17 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 79/28 K/BB ratio in 76 2/3 total frames (14 starts) this season at the major league level. Aug 22, 7:32 pm
  • Moore strikes out 16 batters at AAA Durham
    Matt Moore struck out 16 batters in six innings Saturday evening at Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: That's a new Durham record. Moore was optioned to the minors on August 3 after going 1-3 with an 8.78 ERA over his first six starts for the Rays coming off Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. The 26-year-old left-hander should be back in the majors soon. Aug 22, 5:57 pm

  • Felix Hernandez gives up four runs
    Felix Hernandez yielded four runs in six innings Friday in a loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: It wasn't as bad as last week's drubbing by the Red Sox, but Hernandez gave up nine more hits tonight and saw his ERA rise to 3.74. He's recorded just one quality start in his last five outings, which rates as a stunning display of mediocrity from the guy who still looked like a Cy Young contender a month ago. Aug 21, 10:35 pm
  • Holmberg surrenders four runs in loss
    David Holmberg was tagged for five runs over five innings in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Friday.

    Advice: Holmberg surrendered 11 hits, including a pair of home runs. The big blow was a four-run fourth inning. After pitching well over his first three starts, the 25-year-old has allowed 12 runs over his last two outings. Assuming no changes in the Reds' rotation, he'll bring a 6.57 ERA into a start against the Dodgers next week. Aug 21, 9:35 pm

  • Shelby Miller's winless streak continues
    Shelby Miller was dealt his 10th loss of the season on Friday, surrendering five runs (three earned) on six hits over 6 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Miller punched out eight on the afternoon while walking four. He looked poised to finally snap his winless streak, which extends to 17 starts, as he carried a 3-1 lead into the sixth inning on Friday before the Cubs offense woke up. Now 5-10 on the year, Miller will carry a stellar 2.50 ERA and 1.17 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Rockies. Aug 21, 4:09 pm
  • Syndergaard to have turn skipped soon
    Mets manager Terry Collins confirmed Friday that the club will skip Noah Syndergaard for one turn in the rotation soon.

    Advice: Matt Harvey is being skipped Sunday, and it will likely be next week when it's Syndergaard's turn. The club is simply keeping an eye on the young righty's workload, as his 130 1/3 innings this season is just just shy of last season's career-high 133 frames. The plan is to just skip Syndergaard once, although the Mets will go with a six-man rotation in September with Steven Matz (lat) expected back. Aug 21, 2:54 pm
