    Advice: Segura departed Thursday's game with the ailment. The D'Backs think he's going to be fine, but they'll see how he feels when he reports to the park Friday before knowing whether he'll be in the lineup. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:05 pm

    Jean Segura made an early exit from Thursday's game against the Nationals with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic says Segura "may have tweaked his side or maybe his back" during his seventh-inning at-bat. There should be an update soon. Segura was 1-for-2 with a walk and a run scored. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:30 pm

  • Tomas scratched Thursday due to stiff neck
    Yasmany Tomas was scratched from the Diamondbacks' lineup Thursday with a stiff neck.

    Advice: Brandon Drury is in left field and Socrates Brito is now in right field for the afternoon tilt at Nationals Park. Tomas could very well remain limited over the regular season's final weekend. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:28 am

  • Daniel Murphy (glute) sitting again Thursday
    Daniel Murphy (glute) is out of the Nationals' lineup again on Thursday versus the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Murphy hasn't started a game for the Nats since September 17 because of a strained glute and that probably won't change over the final weekend of the regular season, but he is expected to be a full-go for the best-of-five NLDS next week against the Dodgers. Wilmer Difo is playing second base and batting second on Thursday afternoon against Arizona left-hander Robbie Ray. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:00 am

  • Braun (wrist) goes 1-for-4 in return Wed.
    Ryan Braun (wrist) went 1-for-4 with a run scored in his return to action Wednesday.

    Advice: Braun sat out Tuesday due to mild wrist soreness. The veteran outfielder has put together a terrific 2016 campaign, slashing .307/.368/.542 with 30 home runs, 90 RBI, 16 stolen bases, and 79 runs scored in 133 games. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:44 am
  • Kole Calhoun hits 18th homer
    Kole Calhoun went 2-for-4 and hit his 18th homer Wednesday as the Angels beat the A's 8-6.

    Advice: Calhoun wasn't very good the first two months of the second half, but he's torn it up lately, going 11-for-18 with five doubles in his last five games. His .350 OBP is a nice surprise; he hit 26 homers last year, but he came in at just .308 in the OBP department then. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:34 pm
  • 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 Yesterday, 11:26 pm
  • Hunter Renfroe homers again, knocks in four
    Hunter Renfroe went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and four RBI as the Padres edged the Dodgers 6-5 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Renfroe should have been up on July 21, not September 21, but at least he's used his very limited major league time to make a huge first impression; he's homered four times in his first five starts, and his two-run shot Wednesday sailed over the Western Metal Supply Co. building at Petco Park. That is the first time a player had done that in a live game. This all bodes well for Renfroe's chances of being penciled in as the Padres' everyday right fielder to open the 2017 season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:22 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. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Travis (shoulder) on Jays' bench Wednesday
    Devon Travis (shoulder) is out again Wednesday.

    Advice: Travis injured his left shoulder Monday in the Blue Jays' benches-clearing brawl with the Yankees and remains day-to-day. Ryan Goins is at second base and Ezequiel Carrera is leading off Wednesday night against the Orioles and right-hander Chris Tillman. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:38 pm
  • Daniel Murphy (glute) sits again Wednesday
    Daniel Murphy (glute) is out of the Nationals' starting lineup again on Wednesday.

    Advice: Murphy hasn't started a game since September 17 due to a strained left glute and he might not see much action over the Nationals' final handful of regular-season tilts, though he should be ready to rock for the NLDS. Trea Turner is starting at second base and batting leadoff on Wednesday night against Diamondbacks righty Shelby Miller. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:07 pm

  • Renfroe homers twice, drives in seven vs. LAD
    Hunter Renfroe went off in Tuesday's 7-1 win over the Dodgers, launching a three-run home run and a grand slam to finish with seven RBI.

    Advice: Renfroe spaced out his damage. He swatted a three-run home run off Kenta Maeda in the first inning, then went silent until the eighth. At which point, all the noise in the world. The 24-year-old outfielder connected to clear the bases for the grand slam against Louis Coleman, boosting the Padres to a 7-1 advantage in the process. For those disinclined to do the math, Renfroe accounted for all seven of the Padres' runs in the game with his pair of home runs. Those were his second and third career major league homers. All of this damage has come in Renfroe's first 17 big league at-bats. Not too shabby. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:02 pm
  • Jean Segura slugs home run No. 20
    Jean Segura clubbed his 20th home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: After slugging a pair of longballs Monday, Segura led off the game Tuesday with another dinger. He continues to extend his career high in home runs in what has been a career year for the Diamondbacks' shortstop. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:55 pm

  • Braun out Tuesday because of wrist soreness
    Ryan Braun is out Tuesday with a sore wrist.

    Advice: But the veteran outfielder is expected to return to action Wednesday, so it's obviously not too serious. Michael Reed will start in left field and bat eighth Tuesday versus Rangers right-hander A.J. Griffin. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:36 pm
  • Braun getting night off Tuesday versus Texas
    Ryan Braun is getting the night off Tuesday.

    Advice: Michael Reed will start in left field and bat eighth versus Rangers right-hander A.J. Griffin. This appears to be a routine day of rest for Braun, who's slashing .307/.368/.544 with 30 home runs and 90 RBI in 132 games this season. He also has 16 stolen bases and 78 runs scored. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:13 pm
  • Devon Travis day-to-day with shoulder issue
    Devon Travis (shoulder) is considered day-to-day.

    Advice: Travis got tangled up with some other players in Monday night's benches-clearing brawl with the Yankees, suffering an injury to his left shoulder that he then aggravated on a swing later in the game. It's not clear when he might return. Joaquin Benoit also suffered an injury -- a calf tear, to be exact -- in that pointless fracas Monday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:31 pm
  • Travis (shoulder) out of Jays' lineup Tuesday
    Devon Travis (shoulder) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Orioles.

    Advice: Travis left Monday's game against the Yankees with a left shoulder injury, but the severity isn't yet known. Darwin Barney is filling in at second base on Tuesday while Ezequiel Carrera will play right field and bat leadoff. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:44 pm
  • Murphy (glute) remains sidelined Tuesday
    Daniel Murphy (glute) remains sidelined Tuesday.

    Advice: Murphy has now missed nine straight starts with a strained left glute, but the Nationals are confident he'll be ready for the beginning of the NLDS. Stephen Drew is getting another start at second base on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:32 pm

  • Bryant, Russell sitting Tuesday vs. Pirates
    Kris Bryant is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Pirates.

    Advice: Addison Russell, Jason Heyward, and Willson Contreras are also getting some rest for the Cubs as they look for their 101st victory of the season. Tommy La Stella will start at third base while Javier Baez will play second. Chris Coghlan and Ben Zobrist are in the corner outfield spots and Miguel Montero is behind the plate.

  • Jonathan Villar homers twice against Rangers
    Jonathan Villar homered twice, doubled and knocked in five runs to lead the Brewers past the Rangers 8-3 on Monday.

    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
  • Jean Segura slugs two homers in D'Backs rout
    Jean Segura clubbed a pair of home runs and drove in three in Monday's blowout win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Segura got the scoring starting for the D'Backs with a solo shot in the fourth and then added a two-run shot in the eighth. He also had a single on the night. A lot of things have gone wrong for Arizona this season, but Segura certainly hasn't been one of them. He's up to a career-high 19 home runs and is just four hits shy of a 200-hit campaign.

  • Travis (shoulder) makes early exit Monday
    Devon Travis left Monday's game against the Yankees with a left shoulder injury.

    Advice: Travis went 0-for-3 with a strikeout before leaving after five innings and could be seen wincing on a swing. The specifics of the issue aren't yet known, but it's worth noting that he had a pair of surgeries on his left shoulder last year. We should know more soon. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:49 pm
  • Daniel Murphy (glute) still shut down Monday
    Daniel Murphy (glute) remains shut down Monday.

    Advice: Murphy has missed seven straight starts due to a strained left glute and it sounds like he won't be very active in this final week. But the star second baseman should be ready for the beginning of the NLDS. He has a .347/.391/.596 batting line, 25 homers, and 104 RBI in 141 games this season for the NL East-champion Nationals.

  • 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
  • Yasmany Tomas pulled for not hustling
    Yasmany Tomas was pulled from Saturday's game against the Orioles for an apparent lack of hustle.

    Advice: Tomas failed to run hard to first base following a dropped third strike in the fourth inning. Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale wouldn't confirm it was the reason he pulled Tomas, nor did he confirm it last year for a similar incident involving Tomas. "It’s between he and I," Hale said. "That’s a personal thing. Yas has played his tail off all year for us. He’s one of the guys on this team I really love. That’s just between he and I." Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:43 am

  • Renfroe swats first big league homer Saturday
    Hunter Renfroe went 2-for-4, scored twice and hit his first major league home run on Saturday versus the Giants.

    Advice: He launched a solo homer off Madison Bumgarner in the fourth inning. He doubled and scored in the sixth. Renfroe hit 30 home runs at Triple-A this season. The 24-year-old former first round draft pick is getting his first cup of coffee in the majors this month. He will likely work his way into the Padres' starting lineup early next season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:11 pm
  • Calhoun goes 3-for-5 with two RBI, two runs
    Kole Calhoun went 3-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Astros.

    Advice: He had an RBI single in the eighth inning and a ground rule double in the ninth to drive in another run. He has a .264 batting average with 17 home runs, 70 RBI and 88 runs scored after 150 games. He is a solid fourth fantasy outfielder. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:01 pm
  • Tyler Saladino (back) to see doctor on Monday
    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 Saturday, 5:41 pm

  • Ryan Braun collects game-winner on Friday
    Ryan Braun came through with a two-run single in the seventh inning on Friday, propelling the Brewers to a 5-4 victory over the Reds.

    Advice: Braun also singled and stole a base in the ballgame, finishing the night 2-for-4. He has been extremely productive when he's been on the field this season, slashing .307/.369/.545 with 30 homers, 90 RBI and 16 stolen bases in just 129 games. While he remains an injury-risk, he's still one of the top five-category contributors in fantasy leagues and should be drafted as such next spring. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:24 pm
  • Betts reaches base four times in win
    Mookie Betts went 3-for-4 with a walk in Friday’s win over the Rays.

    Advice: All three hits were singles. Betts has now hit safely in 10 straight games. The American League MVP candidate is batting .321/.365/.543 on the year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:11 pm
  • Tyler Saladino scratched with sore back
    Tyler Saladino was scratched from Friday's lineup with back discomfort.

  • 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

  • Inciarte legs out triple, scores twice in win
    Ender Inciarte went 2-for-4 with a triple and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Inciarte, sometimes the forgotten man in the Shelby Miller trade that sent first overall pick Dansby Swanson to the Braves along with Inciarte and Aaron Blair, has quietly had a very good first season in Atlanta. Aside from making game-saving catches, the 25-year-old is also hitting .296/.354/.389 with 16 stolen bases and 80 runs scored. If Swanson was the main prize, Inciarte has been the cherry on top for the Braves. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:53 pm
  • Calhoun to return to Angels lineup on Friday
    Kole Calhoun is expected to return to the Angels starting lineup on Friday.

    Advice: The right fielder missed the past three games to be with his wife for the birth of his son. The 28-year-old will return to a .263/.342/.418 slash line with 17 homers and 68 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:20 pm
  • Brian Dozier hits 42nd homer
    Brian Dozier hit homer No. 42 in Thursday's loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Dozier led off the bottom of the first with the shot. Unfortunately, it was the only run the Tigers would manage off Anibal Sanchez. Dozier is now just one homer away from matching Davey Johnson's record for homers by a second baseman. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:53 pm
  • Murphy's leg is 'not responding to treatment'
    Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Wednesday that Daniel Murphy (leg) is not responding to treatment.

    Advice: Murphy is missing a fourth straight start Wednesday due to lingering soreness in his left leg, with Stephen Drew filling in at second. Baker is hopeful Murphy will be ready to go Friday after Thursday's scheduled team off day, but it's no sure thing. "He hasn’t been responding to treatment," Baker told reporters. "With a day off tomorrow, we’ll work on it. We’ll work on it and see." Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:34 pm

  • Padres promote Hunter Renfroe from El Paso
    Padres purchased the contract of OF Hunter Renfroe from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Renfroe was one of the top hitters in the Pacific Coast League this summer, slashing .306/.336/.557 with 30 homers and 105 RBI in 133 games for the El Paso Chihuahuas, whose season ended Tuesday in the Triple-A championship. The plan probably calls for him to make three or four starts over the Padres' final 11 games, which doesn't offer much fantasy appeal. Renfroe, the 13th overall pick in the 2013 MLB June Amateur Draft, will challenge for a starting job with San Diego leading into 2017. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:05 pm
  • Padres calling up Renfroe, Margot and others
    Padres manager Andy Green confirmed late Tuesday that the club is calling up prospects Hunter Renfroe, Manuel Margot, Austin Hedges, and Carlos Asuaje.

    Advice: We were hoping this might happen three weeks ago so that Renfroe and Margot -- both top-100 prospects -- might be of some fantasy use, but the El Paso Chihuahuas made a run all the way to the Triple-A championship before falling to the Yankees' Scranton/Wilkes-Barre affiliate on Tuesday night in Memphis. Renfroe, 24, batted .306/.336/.557 with 30 home runs and 105 RBI in 133 games this season at the Triple-A level. Margot, 21, hit .304/.351/.426 with six home runs and 30 stolen bases in 124 games. They'll both be appearing in the majors for the first time. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:06 am
  • Saladino (calf) goes 1-for-4 in return Tues.
    Tyler Saladino (calf) went 1-for-4 in his return to the White Sox starting lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Saladino missed a handful of games after tweaking his calf Friday night in Kansas City. The 27-year-old infielder is slashing .286/.319/.415 with eight home runs and 11 stolen bases in 92 games this season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:53 am

  • Seager collects three hits in loss to Giants
    Corey Seager went 3-for-4 with a double in Tuesday's loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Seager picked up double No. 40 for the season in the loss. That was the Dodgers' only extra-base hit on the evening. For the 2016 campaign as a whole, the 22-year-old shortstop is hitting .316/.374/.526 with 25 homers and 69 RBI over 586 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:19 pm
  • Bryant knocks RBI double, scores against Reds
    Kris Bryant went 3-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: The multi-hit game was just Bryant's second of the month and his first since September 3. It's not exactly how the 24-year-old would like to be hitting as the postseason approaches, but Tuesday shows that it only takes one night for him to make his presence felt. Bryant now has 35 doubles to go with 37 homers, 97 RBI, 116 runs and eight steals on the year. He should be just fine come October. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:42 pm

  • Ryan Braun out again Tuesday versus Bucs
    Ryan Braun is out of the Brewers' lineup for Tuesday's series opener versus the Pirates.

    Advice: Braun also sat out of Sunday's series finale against the Cubs, so something could be up here. His wife is apparently close to her due date with the couple's second child, but there's been no announcement from Braun or the Brewers. The veteran outfielder slugged his 29th and 30th homers of the season on Saturday, finishing that game with five RBI. Jake Elmore is in left field and batting sixth Tuesday night against Bucs left-hander Steven Brault. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:43 pm

    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.

    Mookie Betts slugged a two-run homer and drew a pair of walks in Monday's win over the Orioles.

    Advice: Betts put one over the left-field wall in the third inning for his 31st longball of the season. Amazingly, eight of Betts' home runs have come at Camden Yards even though he's played just seven games there this season. Monday's homer was the American League MVP candidate's first in September.
