  • Adam Rosales goes deep in win over Giants
    Adam Rosales went 1-for-3 with a homer and a walk as the Padres came from behind to beat the Giants 4-3 on Sunday afternoon in San Diego.

    Advice: Rosales tagged Giants starter Ty Blach for a solo shot in the third inning, pulling the Padres to within a run at 3-2. The lefty-mashing utility man has been on a tear as of late and is now slashing .232/.322/.502 with 13 long balls and 35 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:51 pm

  • Joe Mauer (quad) says he feels 'terrible'
    Joe Mauer (quad) admitted Saturday that he's "been feeling terrible for a while."

    Advice: Mauer has battled lingering pain in his right quad area for the last six weeks and has been in and out of the lineup of late. "Well, I feel terrible," Mauer said. "I’ve been feeling terrible for a while. But the season’s not over." The first baseman will be back in the lineup Sunday, but his playing time in the final week figures to continue to be curtailed.

  • Ruf has three hits, homer in win over Mets
    Darin Ruf went 3-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Mets.

    Advice: Ruf swatted a three-run bomb in the fourth inning as the Phillies hung 10 runs on the Mets in the victory. It was Ruf's second homer in as many games after going his first 37 games without one. Ineffectiveness and the emergence of Tommy Joseph have relegated Ruf to a reserve role, and the 30-year-old will need a big spring to earn a spot on the 2017 roster. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:13 pm

  • 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 Saturday, 9:17 pm

  • Bell hits third homer in loss to Nationals
    Josh Bell hit his third homer of the year in Saturday's loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: Bell, starting in right field and batting second, took Nats starter Joe Ross deep in the third inning for what turned out to be the Pirates' only run of the contest. The dinger was his third in 38 games this year, and he's got 18 RBI and 16 runs scored as well. Bell is hitting .287/.383/.444 and should be a big part of the Bucs' 2017 team.

  • Mancini launches third homer in four games
    Trey Mancini hit his third home run in four games in Saturday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Mancini took D'backs starter Robbie Ray deep for a solo shot in the fourth inning. The 24-year-old has four hits in 11 at-bats since being brought up by the Orioles, but three of those have left the yard. He could be setting himself up to enter next spring as the favorite for the Orioles' designated hitter job with his hot finish. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:16 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. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:40 pm
  • Holt has RBI double, run scored against Rays
    Brock Holt went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Holt plated the first run of the game with a double in the second inning. The all-purpose 28-year-old is hitting .264/.326/.397 with seven homers, 34 RBI, 44 runs scored and four steals in 88 games this year. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:34 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 Saturday, 3:34 pm
  • Holliday scratched from another BP session
    Matt Holliday (thumb) will not take batting practice this weekend.

    Advice: He's going to meet with a specialist and hopefully try again Monday. Holliday has encountered numerous setbacks in his recovery from thumb surgery and is running out of time to make his return with only a week left in the regular season. The 36-year-old hasn't played since August 11. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:28 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 Saturday, 1:46 pm

  • Joe Mauer (quad) remains sidelined Saturday
    Joe Mauer (quad) is not in the Twins' lineup Saturday against the Mariners.

  • Cron has three hits, two RBI in win over HOU
    C.J. Cron went 3-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored in Friday’s 10-6 victory over the Astros.

    Advice: Cron had two doubles and a single on the night. He knocked in a run with a double in the second inning and later plated the go-ahead run with a single off Ken Giles in the ninth. The 26-year-old got off to a hot start after returning from the disabled list last month, but he hasn’t been able to sustain it in September. This was his first multi-hit game since September 5.

  • Duda doubles in win over Phillies
    Lucas Duda went 1-for-3 with a double against the Phillies on Friday.

    Advice: Mets manager Terry Collins went with Duda on Friday after watching him almost hit a game-winning homer in Thursday’s game. He’s being thrown into the fire, but it looks like he’s getting his timing back at the plate. James Loney has been handling first base duties since the end of May, but that time could be coming to an end. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:14 pm
  • Gerardo Parra (illness) not in Rockies lineup
    Gerardo Parra (illness) is not in the Rockies starting like for Friday's game against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Parra was a late scratch from Thursday's lineup due to an illness. It's unclear if Friday's absence is related to him still feeling under the weather, or it's simply a product of the matchup against left-hander Scott Kazmir. He's still considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:46 pm
  • Matt Holliday (thumb) to take live BP again
    Matt Holliday (thumb) will take live batting practice again this weekend before being activated from the disabled list.

    Advice: Holliday took live BP on Friday with no issues but the Cardinals want to see him do it once more before they return him to the active roster. It's unclear whether Holliday would be ready for regular at-bats right away upon activation. He's been out since early August with a fractured right thumb. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:58 am

  • Matt Holliday (thumb) takes live BP
    Matt Holliday (thumb) took live batting practice Friday at Wrigley Field.

    Advice: Holliday was scratched from a simulated game last Saturday due to swelling in his surgically-repaired right thumb, but he resumed live hitting earlier this week. It seems likely that he's not going to be 100 percent at any point the rest of the way, but the Cardinals could wind up activating him, anyway, even it's to be used in a secondary role.

  • 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
  • Mauer (quad) might not play again until Sun.
    Joe Mauer might not start again until Sunday due to ongoing soreness in his right quad.

    Advice: Mauer hasn't started since last Saturday, although he had been slated to play Wednesday before that game was rained out. After a terrific August, Mauer has fallen off to .119/.245/.238 in September. Kennys Vargas has been filling in at first base. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:45 am
  • Mancini belts three-run homer against Red Sox
    Trey Mancini went 2-for-3 with a double and a three-run home run in Thursday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Mancini was the only Orioles hitter with an answer for David Price and company, collecting two of the team's six hits and notching the only two Orioles extra-base hits in the game. The three-run homer in the third inning came off David Price. It was the 24-year-old's second homer in three games since being promoted on September 18 after he hit 20 homers between Double-A and Triple-A this year. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:13 pm
  • Gerardo Parra (illness) scratched from lineup
    Gerardo Parra was scratched from the Rockies starting lineup on Thursday due to an illness.

    Advice: Stephen Cardullo replaced him at first base and will bat seventh for the Rockies against Brett Anderson and the Dodgers on Thursday. Parra should be considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:25 pm
  • Brock Holt (death in family) back Thursday
    Brock Holt (personal) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup Thursday night against the Orioles.

    Advice: Holt was excused from the club for a couple of days following a death in his family. He will start at shortstop and bat second Thursday versus Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman. Xander Bogaerts has the night off. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:23 pm

  • Joe Mauer out of Minnesota lineup for Gm. 1
    Joe Mauer is out of the Twins' starting lineup for Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader versus Detroit.

    Advice: Kennys Vargas will start at first base and bat fifth against Tigers right-hander Anibal Sanchez. Twins manager Paul Molitor said he has noticed some "off-balance" swings from Mauer this week and might also sit him against Justin Verlander in the nightcap Thursday. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:35 am
  • 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

  • Adam Rosales homers, drives in four vs. ARI
    Adam Rosales went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run and four RBI in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Funky little batting line for Rosales due to the fact that two of his four RBI came via sacrifice flies. His two-run home run in the sixth inning was his 11th of the season. The veteran infielder has homered in two of his last three games and is slashing .233/.323/.485 with 11 homers and 32 RBI over 202 at-bats for the season as a whole. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:42 pm

  • Danny Valencia strikes out twice in defeat
    Danny Valencia went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Tuesday's 10-inning loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Valencia could not find a hit on the evening, a common theme for the A's. As a team, they managed just a trio of singles over 10 innings. For the season as a whole, Valencia is slashing .287/.348/.455 with 17 homers and 51 RBI over 442 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:15 pm

  • Trey Mancini blasts first MLB home run
    Trey Mancini launched his first major league home run in his first start in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Called up from the minors on Sunday, Mancini flied out in his first at-bat but then ended Eduardo Rodriguez's no-hit bit with two outs in the fifth inning with a solo blast to left-center field. The 24-year-old could see more starts in the designated hitter spot against left-handers. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:52 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

  • 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

    Advice: His solo shot opened the game's scoring in the second inning. Rosales also singled, finishing the afternoon 2-for-4. In a part-time job with the Padres this season, he has slashed .230/.326/.474 with 10 long balls and 28 RBI. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 4:32 pm

  • Derek Dietrich reaches three times
    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

  • Lucas Duda starting at first base on Sunday
    Lucas Duda is starting at first base and batting seventh for the Mets on Sunday.

    Advice: The thinking had been that Duda would be limited to pinch-hitting for a while after he was activated Friday, but apparently he's feeling well enough for full-time duty. It will be his first start since late May. Curtis Granderson, Jose Reyes and Asdrubal Cabrera have the day off Sunday, as Alejandro De Aza, Michael Conforto, Kelly Johnson and Matt Reynolds are all getting starts. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 8:45 am
  • Logan Forsythe not in Sunday's lineup
    Logan Forsythe is not in the Rays' lineup Sunday.

  • Trey Mancini called up from Triple-A
    Orioles purchased the contract of 1B Trey Mancini from Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: Mancini, 24, batted .282/.357/.458 with 20 homers between Double- and Triple-A this season. He'll give the O's another right-handed bat with Mark Trumbo (back) banged up. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 7:48 am
  • Valencia has three-run homer against Rangers
    Danny Valencia went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run in a win over the Rangers on Saturday.

    Advice: Valencia made his name crushing lefties, and Rangers southpaw Dario Alvarez learned that the hard way in the eighth inning when the 31-year-old took him deep with two runners on. Against all odds, Valencia has managed to weather the A's youth movement and a tussle with teammate Billy Butler -- which got Butler released -- and is performing well down the stretch. Valencia is hitting .289/.347/.458 with 17 homers, 51 RBI and 69 runs scored with a handful of games left to play. Rotoworld.com Sep 17, 9:23 pm

  • Holliday (thumb) still dealing with swelling
    Matt Holliday was scratched from Saturday's simulated game after experiencing renewed swelling in his surgically-repaired thumb.

    Advice: Holliday broke his thumb about a month ago but was hoping to return later this year. Saturday's setback might put a wrench in that plan. Brandon Moss and a host of others have occupied left field during his absence. Rotoworld.com Sep 17, 4:37 pm

  • Bell boosts Pirates with three hits Saturday
    Josh Bell led the Pirates with three hits Saturday in a win over the Reds.

    Advice: Bell doubled in his first at-bat and later drove in a run with a two-bagger in the seventh. He also provided a single to center field in the fourth. It's been a good stretch for Bell, who is hitting .367 in September. The 24-year-old has been splitting time between first base and right field since his call-up last month.

  • Mets activate Lucas Duda from 60-day DL
    Mets activated 1B Lucas Duda from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: He still hasn't been cleared to play the field and will be limited to pinch-hitting duties, but he adds another powerful left-handed bat to the Mets bench. He has been sidelined since late May due to a stress fracture in his back. Rotoworld.com Sep 17, 11:43 am
  • Mauer draws three walks Friday
    Joe Mauer went 0-for-1 with three walks Friday against the Mets.

    Advice: It was his third three-walk game of the season. We know, we know. That isn’t very exciting for fantasy owners. Mauer recently missed some time with some soreness in his quads, but he felt well enough to play first base on Friday under National League rules. Rotoworld.com Sep 16, 7:02 pm
  • Matt Holliday to take live BP on Saturday
    Matt Holliday (thumb) is scheduled to take live batting practice on Saturday.

  • Yangervis Solarte out due to family issue
    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. Alexi Amarista replaced him in Friday's lineup and could see extra run in his absence. Rotoworld.com Sep 16, 4:14 pm
  • Yangervis Solarte scratched from lineup
    Yangervis Solarte was scratched from the Padres' lineup Friday.

    Advice: No reason for the scratch has been provided yet. Alexi Amarista has replaced him at second base. Rotoworld.com Sep 16, 2:42 pm
  • Duda (back) returning as pinch-hitter Sat.
    Lucas Duda (back) will be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

    Advice: He'll be limited to pinch-hitting initially, as it's unclear when or if he might be able to play a full-time role at some point. It's obviously good news for the Mets regardless, as Duda has been on the shelf since late May with a stress fracture in his back. Rotoworld.com Sep 16, 1:19 pm
