  • Chris Coghlan exits with apparent leg injury
    Chris Coghlan was lifted from Wednesday's game against the Pirates due to an apparent left leg injury.

    Advice: Coghlan was forced out of the game after he collided with the wall while chasing a fly ball in the fifth inning. The veteran outfielder was able to walk off the field under his own power and was replaced by Albert Almora in left field. The Cubs should provide a further update on his injury later on Wednesday.

  • Reds claim Patrick Kivlehan from Padres
    Reds claimed OF Patrick Kivlehan off waivers from the Padres.

    Advice: Kivlehan has also spent time with the Triple-A affiliates of the Rangers, Mariners, and Padres in 2016. He is a .282/.344/.470 career hitter in the minors and the 26-year-old outfielder tallied 22 homers and 14 stolen bases in 123 games last season at Triple-A Tacoma. There's still some promise here.

  • 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 Today, 5:58 am

  • 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 Yesterday, 10:38 pm
  • Jefry Marte clubs grand slam in win over A's
    Jefry Marte went 2-for-4 with a grand slam in Tuesday's 8-1 win over the A's

    Advice: Marte stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and nobody out in the fourth inning. Facing off against Daniel Mengden, he proceeded to launch a 405-foot bomb to dead central to jump the Angels to a 5-0 lead. That was more than enough for a game Ricky Nolasco. In addition to the granny, Marte also picked up a double. He has done a nice job in a complementary role this season, hitting .251/.307/.461 with 13 homers and 42 RBI over 243 at-bats.

  • 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 Yesterday, 10:03 pm
  • Ryon Healy hits RBI double in loss to Angels
    Ryon Healy went 3-for-4 with an RBI double in Tuesday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Healy was more or less the entire offense for the A's in this one. No other Athletics batter had more than one hit and as a team, they finished with six knocks -- half of which belonged to Healy. His sixth inning RBI double off Ricky Nolasco drove in the team's lone run of the game. This was his second three-hit effort in his last three games. Overall, he is slashing a sturdy .309/.341/.526 with 12 homers and 34 RBI over 249 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:57 pm
  • Suarez picks up three hits, two runs vs. STL
    Eugenio Suarez went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Suarez swatted three singles in the game, and he's now got a modest five-game hitting streak during which he's 9-for-22 with five runs scored. 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 Yesterday, 9:56 pm
  • Chris Coghlan drives in three runs Tuesday
    Chris Coghlan ripped a bases-clearing triple in Tuesday's win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Coghlan got the scoring going with his three-bagger in the second inning. He also added a single and a stolen base on the night. Coghlan really struggled for the A's but has regained his form back in Chicago, batting .271/.403/.417. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:24 pm

  • Escobar launches sixth homer against Royals
    Eduardo Escobar went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's extra-innings loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Escobar took Royals starter Ian Kennedy deep in the fourth inning for a solo shot, his sixth of the year. Before Tuesday, the 27-year-old had been just 5-for-56 in the month of September. The light-hitting infielder is batting .239/.277/.345 in 100 games overall. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:19 pm

  • Wilmer Flores felt more wrist pain Monday
    Wilmer Flores felt lingering pain in his wrist while trying to swing a bat on Monday.

    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. Flores hasn't appeared in a major league game since September 10 due to a bone bruise in his left wrist. He was slashing .267/.319/.469 with 16 homers and 49 RBI in 307 at-bats.

  • Giants acquire Gordon Beckham from Braves
    Giants acquired INF Gordon Beckham from the Braves for INF Rich Rodriguez.

    Advice: Beckham will give the Giants some infield depth this week with Eduardo Nunez and Brandon Crawford banged up, but he will not be eligible for the postseason. The 30-year-old is batting just .217/.300/.354 across 273 plate appearances this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:41 pm

  • Giants near deal to acquire Gordon Beckham
    Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Giants are "very close" to acquiring infielder Gordon Beckham from the Braves.

    Advice: Eduardo Nunez is out with a hamstring injury, so Beckham would provide some infield depth this week. He would not be eligible for the postseason. Beckham, 30, is batting just .217/.300/.354 over 273 plate appearances this season and will hit free agency this winter. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:50 am

  • Marlins, Prado agree to three-year extension
    Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins and Martin Prado have agreed to a three-year, $40 million extension.

    Advice: Prado was previously due to hit a weak free agent market this winter, but he's now locked up through his age-35 season in 2019. Acquired from the Yankees in December of 2014, Prado has hit .297/.350/.405 over two seasons with Miami and has emerged as a clubhouse leader. The Marlins made it a top priority to keep him in the fold and they were successful. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:17 am

  • Kang could get time at SS next season
    Pirates manager Clint Hurdle hinted Monday that Jung Ho Kang could see more time at shortstop next season.

    Advice: Kang has exclusively played third base this season, though he hasn't been as sharp defensively. The feeling is that he could see some improvement another year removed from a torn MCL and fractured tibia, possibly opening the door for a return to shortstop. "Will there be an opportunity for him to move back at short any time next year based on the rehab and the strength and what he's able to show?" said Hurdle. "That's going to be an interesting development." Starting shortstop Jordy Mercer remains under team control for next season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:12 am

  • Baez's six RBI propel Cubs to 100th victory
    Javier Baez hit a grand slam and drove in a career-high six runs in Monday's victory over the Pirates.

    Advice: Baez took Chad Kuhl deep in the fourth inning for his second grand slam of the season. He wasn't done there, adding a two-RBI single in the sixth to extend the Cubs' lead to 11-0 at the time. Kris Bryant also went deep for the Cubbies, who claimed their 100th victory of the season. It's the first time since 1935 that the Cubs have reached 100 wins. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:58 pm

  • Bregman (hamstring) not ruled out from return
    Astros manager A.J. Hinch hasn't ruled out Alex Bregman (hamstring) from returning this week.

    Advice: It was previously thought that Bregman was unlikely to return unless the Astros made a deep run into the playoffs, but he was able to make it through a full workout on Monday. If anything, he could get some peace of mind going into the winter. The outstanding rookie has been out since September 14 with a hamstring strain. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:16 pm

  • Bregman (hamstring) does baseball activity
    Alex Bregman (hamstring) did some baseball activities on the field Monday. did some running on the field today and took some ground balls and hit

    Advice: Bregman, out since September 14 with a right hamstring strain, did some running on the field in addition to taking grounders and hitting. He said things went well, but odds are we've seen the last of him this season, even if the Astros were to make a remarkable run this week and snag one of the Wild Card spots.

  • Yulieski Gurriel not in Monday's lineup
    Yulieski Gurriel is not in Monday's lineup versus the Mariners.

    Advice: Gurriel has just three hits in his last 31 at-bats, so he'll get a breather for the series opener. Marwin Gonzalez will make the start at third base and hit second versus right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:16 pm

  • Peralta drives home lone run in loss to Cubs
    Jhonny Peralta went 1-for-4 and plated the Cardinals' lone run in Sunday night's loss to the Cubs.

    Advice: His run-scoring single in the eighth inning got the Cardinals on the board, cutting their deficit in half at 2-1. That would be the extent of their offense though. It has been a disappointing and injury-plagued season for the veteran infielder who is now hitting .251/.298/.395 with seven homers and 25 RBI in his 75 games. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:24 pm
  • Ryon Healy leaves the yard again in victory
    Ryon Healy clobbered another home run on Sunday as the Athletics routed the Rangers 7-1 in Oakland.

    Advice: All of the damage came during a seven-run uprising in the second inning, which Healy capped off with a two-run homer to chase Colby Lewis from the game. He has really opened some eyes during his time with the big league club, slashing .303/.336/.519 with 12 homers and 33 RBI in 241 at-bats. He has likely played his way into a role as the club's starting third baseman heading into 2017. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:40 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

  • Prado delivers two-run double in loss
    Martin Prado delivered a two-run double in Friday’s loss to the Braves.

    Advice: His first-inning double gave the Marlins an early 2-0 lead, but they were held off the board the rest of the way. With seven homers, Prado hasn’t shown much punch this year, but he has driven in 73 runs to go along with a .308/.363/.418 batting line. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:57 pm

  • 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.

  • Padres DFA outfielder Patrick Kivlehan
    Padres designated OF Patrick Kivlehan for assignment.

    Advice: In 16 at-bats with the big league club this season, Kivlehan recorded four hits, including his first major league home run. In a larger sample size, the 26-year-old outfielder slashed .254/.302/.416 with 12 homers and 49 RBI over 370 at-bats for the Triple-A teams of the Rangers, Mariners and Padres. The former two teams both designated him for assignment before he landed with the Padres. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:20 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

    Rays purchased the contract of INF Juniel Querecuto from Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Querecuto will give the Rays a little extra infield depth for their final 12 games. He batted .241/.298/.341 with three homers and three steals in 375 plate appearances this season between Double-A and Triple-A. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:36 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

  • Bregman (hamstring) likely done for season
    Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said Monday that Alex Bregman's hamstring injury usually requires 4-6 weeks of recovery time.

    Advice: Bregman just suffered the injury last Wednesday, so it's safe to say that we won't see him again during the regular season. Luhnow indicated that his timetable could potentially be pushed up, so there's a chance he could be in the mix if the Astros sneak into a Wild Card spot and make a push in the playoffs. But obviously that's asking a lot on all fronts. Rotoworld.com Sep 19, 6:11 pm

  • Bregman (hamstring) remains sidelined
    Alex Bregman (hamstring) remains sidelined.

    Advice: Bregman strained his right hamstring last Wednesday and didn't travel with the Astros during their six-game roadtrip. Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Friday that it's the sort of injury that would normally require a stint on the 15-day disabled list, but there's no need to put him on there in September. Either way, he appears unlikely to play again this season. Rotoworld.com Sep 19, 3:39 pm
