  • Headley in Monday's lineup vs. Royals
    Chase Headley is in Monday's lineup against the Royals.

    Advice: Ronald Torreyes started all three games at third base over the weekend, but Headley is back in there Monday and will bat seventh against Dillon Gee. Headley will likely continue to lose playing time if Torreyes continues to play well. 31 minutes ago
  • Angels option RHP Achter to Triple-A
    Angels optioned RHP A.J. Achter to Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: The Angels have called up outfielder Rafael Ortega to take his spot on the active roster. Achter should be back in September. 39 minutes ago

  • Padres activate Morrow from paternity leave
    Padres activated RHP Brandon Morrow from the paternity leave list.

    Advice: Morrow has been away from the team since Friday in order to be present for the birth of his first child. The Padres sent down Buddy Baumann on Monday in order to make room for his return to the active roster. 52 minutes ago
  • Dodgers option RHP Stewart to Double-A
    Dodgers optioned RHP Brock Stewart to Double-A Tulsa.

    Advice: Stewart was exactly what the doctor ordered in a spot-start Sunday against the Cubs, tossing five scoreless innings. He's being sent down to make room for Kenta Maeda's return, but look for him to return in September. Today, 1:36 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. Today, 1:33 pm
    15-Day DL
    4:05 pm vs Tor
  • Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) out of lineup Monday
    Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) is out of Monday's lineup against the Marlins.

    Advice: Cabrera exited Sunday's game after aggravating a left knee injury in a collision at first base. It's unclear when the NL Player of the Week will be ready to return to action. Today, 1:07 pm
    4:10 pm vs Mia
  • 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. Today, 12:59 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. 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. Today, 12:20 pm

  • 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. Today, 11:39 am

  • Nationals recall Michael Taylor from AAA
    Nationals recalled OF Michael Taylor from Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: Taylor batted just .204/.280/.283 over 125 plate appearances during his month-long stay at the Triple-A level. The 25-year-old center fielder has certainly lost some shine off his fantasy outlook in 2016. He'll operate in a utility outfield role with Washington. Today, 11:38 am
  • A's activate Billy Butler from concussion DL
    Athletics activated DH Billy Butler from the 7-day concussion disabled list.

    Advice: Butler suffered a concussion last weekend in a clubhouse fight with teammate Danny Valencia. The two have since apologized, to each other and to the A's organization. Butler has a disappointing .286/.338/.419 batting line with four homers and 30 RBI in 228 plate appearances this season. Today, 10:43 am
  • Cardinals recall Dean Kiekhefer from AAA
    Cardinals recalled LHP Dean Kiekhefer from Triple-A Memphis.

    Advice: Kiekhefer will be available out of the St. Louis bullpen on Monday night in Milwaukee. The left-hander has allowed seven runs in 14 innings this year at the MLB level. Today, 9:27 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. 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. Today, 6:29 am

  • Brock Stewart hurls five scoreless innings
    Brock Stewart looked fantastic in a spot start against the Cubs on Sunday, hurling five shutout innings in a no-decision.

    Advice: Stewart was on a limited pitch count in the ballgame and needed 80 pitches to get through his five frames. Four Dodgers relievers picked it up from there, combining with Stewart to shut out one of the top offenses in all of baseball. It's likely that he'll stick around in a long relief capacity for the duration of the season. Yesterday, 5:06 pm

  • Billy Butler (concussion) expected back Mon.
    Billy Butler (concussion) is expected to be activated on Monday.

    Advice: That's assuming he passes a concussion test Sunday. Butler has missed the last week of action following a clubhouse scuffle with teammate Danny Valencia. Yesterday, 11:08 am
  • Asdrubal Cabrera aggravates knee injury
    Asdrubal Cabrera exited Sunday's game versus the Phillies with a sore left knee.

    Advice: It looked like his arm was hurt in a collision at first base with Tommy Joseph, but apparently Cabrera aggravated the knee injury that recently cost him three weeks of action. The Mets could have more on his status after the game, but this could certainly be a disabled list situation. Yesterday, 11:01 am
    4:10 pm vs Mia
  • Asdrubal Cabrera exits game with arm injury
    Asdrubal Cabrera departed Sunday's game versus the Phillies with an apparent arm injury.

    Advice: Cabrera ran into Tommy Joseph at first base while legging out a bunt single and appeared to hurt his wrist and/or forearm. He initially stayed in but was pulled after being in obvious pain while running to second base. The Mets should update Cabrera's status shortly. Yesterday, 10:31 am
    4:10 pm vs Mia
  • 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. Yesterday, 8:52 am
    15-Day DL
    4:05 pm vs Tor
  • Cabrera has three hits, homer in win over PHI
    Asdrubal Cabrera continued his hot hitting on Saturday against the Phillies by going 3-for-4 with a two-run homer, a walk, and two runs scored.

    Advice: Cabrera has three homers over his last two games and is now up to 16 for the year, which is one more than his total from all of last season. The bleach-blonde infielder has been red-hot since returning from his knee injury, hitting .438 (14-for-32) over eight games. Saturday, 7:22 pm
    4:10 pm vs Mia
  • Brock Stewart to start Sunday vs. Cubs
    Brock Stewart will start Sunday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Sunday was supposed to be Kenta Maeda's turn in the rotation but instead he'll be pushed back to Monday. Stewart has fared poorly in his two major league starts this season with a 14.00 ERA in losses to the Rockies and Brewers. He won't be a steaming option Sunday against a loaded Cubs lineup. Saturday, 1:38 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. Saturday, 8:50 am
    15-Day DL
    4:05 pm vs Tor
  • Cabrera homers twice in win over Phillies
    Asdrubal Cabrera homered from both sides of the plate Friday against the Phillies.

    Advice: Cabrera launched a solo homer from the right side in the first inning before socking a two-run blast from the left side in the sixth. It was his fifth career multi-homer game. He’s now up to 15 homers on the year, which matches his total from all of last season. Friday, 7:28 pm
    4:10 pm vs Mia
  • Headley socks two-run homer in win
    Chase Headley finished 2-for-5 with a two-run homer and two runs scored against the Orioles on Friday.

    Advice: After a miserable April, Headley picked things up through the end of July, but he was hitting just .220/.313/.356 this month coming into Friday’s action. It’s worth noting that he was dealing with tendinitis in his left Achilles during that time, but he now has two homers in his last four games. Perhaps he’s turning the corner. Friday, 7:18 pm
  • Dodgers recall Brock Stewart from Triple-A
    Dodgers recalled RHP Brock Stewart from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Stewart continues to shuttle back and forth between Triple-A and the big league club whenever the Dodgers need a fresh arm in the bullpen. He'll work in a long relief role once again. Friday, 3:28 pm

  • Brandon Morrow goes on paternity leave
    Padres placed RHP Brandon Morrow on the paternity leave list.

    Advice: Morrow and his wife are expecting their first child. He's being replaced on the roster by Buddy Baumann. Friday, 10:20 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. Thursday, 3:58 pm
    15-Day DL
    4:05 pm vs Tor
  • 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. Thursday, 1:56 pm

  • Billy Butler progressing from concussion
    Billy Butler said Wednesday that he's making good progress in his recovery from a concussion.

    Advice: Butler also apologized for his role in the clubhouse fight with teammate Danny Valencia that resulted in his concussion. "I definitely said some things you shouldn’t, I definitely stepped in an area you shouldn’t. That wasn’t my business," said Butler. "I know I regret what I did, I think he regrets what he did. By no means do I think his intentions were to give me a concussion, I think that’s fair to say." The fight started after Butler told a rep for an equipment company that Valencia was wearing the wrong shoes at the wrong time. Or something like that. Wednesday, 12:26 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. 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. Wednesday, 6:33 am
    15-Day DL
    4:05 pm vs Tor
  • Cabrera collects three more hits since return
    Asdrubal Cabrera went 3-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI, a run scored and a stolen base Tuesday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Garcia now has two RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in four games since being activated from the disabled list on August 19. He's 6-for-16 in those four games, raising his overall line to .260/.310/.414 with 13 homers, 35 RBI and 43 runs scored. The stolen base, swiped against the great Yadier Molina as part of a double steal, was just Cabrera's second on the year. Tuesday, 9:52 pm
    4:10 pm vs Mia
  • 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. Tuesday, 7:42 pm
    15-Day DL
    4:05 pm vs Tor
  • 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. Tuesday, 1:32 pm
    15-Day DL
    4:05 pm vs Tor
  • Billy Butler placed on 7-day concussion DL
    Athletics placed DH Billy Butler on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

    Advice: Butler has been dealing with concussion symptoms following a physical altercation with teammate Danny Valencia on Friday. According to Athletics general manager David Forst, both players were fined as a result. Arismendy Alcantara will take Butler's spot on the active roster. Monday, 4:09 pm
  • Billy Butler not listed on active roster
    Billy Butler is not listed on the active roster for Monday's game against the Indians.

    Advice: The Athletics have yet to make an official announcement, but Butler displayed concussion symptoms following a physical altercation with teammate Danny Valencia over the weekend and will presumably be placed on the disabled list. Arismendy Alcantara is expected to take his spot on the active roster. Monday, 3:33 pm
  • Butler, Valencia fought over endorsement deal
    According to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, the recent clubhouse fight between Billy Butler and Danny Valencia was about an endorsement contract.

    Advice: Valencia was in talks with an equipment representative before Butler allegedly interjected regarding the use of some off-brand spikes and told him that the company should drop the endorsement deal. This led to a confrontation where Valencia allegedly punched Butler in the temple. Butler has dealt with nausea and vomiting since. As for Valencia, Slusser hears that he will be fined for the fight. It's unclear if he'll face any other punishment. Monday, 3:11 pm
  • Butler reportedly hurt in fight with Valencia
    Billy Butler missed Saturday and Sunday's games against the White Sox due to injuries sustained in an altercation with teammate Danny Valencia.

    Advice: The alleged incident occurred on Friday night, per Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle. A's manager Bob Melvin wouldn't divulge any details when pressed for information on Sunday and simply noted that Butler sat out due to nausea and vomiting, and not from the flu as initially reported. Those symptoms are often associated with concussions, though it's unclear if Butler sustained a concussion from the altercation with Valencia. There should be more clarity here soon, especially if MLB decides to investigate the matter. Aug 21, 7:02 pm
  • A.J. Achter recalled from Triple-A
    Angels recalled RHP A.J. Achter from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Achter holds a 3.80 ERA over 21 1/3 relief innings in the majors this season. He'll be used in the middle of games. Aug 21, 10:21 am

    7:05 pm vs Cin
  • Billy Butler (illness) remains unavailable
    Billy Butler (illness) isn't available to play Sunday.

    Advice: Butler isn't even at the ballpark, as the A's told him to stay at the team hotel as he recovers from the flu. He's day-to-day. Khris Davis is in the designated hitter spot Sunday and Coco Crisp is in left field. Aug 21, 9:43 am
  • Chase Headley battling Achilles tendinitis
    Chase Headley has been dealing with tendinitis in his left Achilles for over a week.

    Advice: It was a factor in him sitting out Friday and Saturday, although Headley was available off the bench Saturday. Headley could return to the lineup Sunday. Aug 21, 7:01 am
  • 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. Aug 20, 7:59 pm
    15-Day DL
    4:05 pm vs Tor
  • Billy Butler sitting out with illness Saturday
    Billy Butler (illness) is not in the Athletics' lineup Saturday against the White Sox.

    Advice: He's feeling a bit under the weather. Butler plays sparingly these days but he's a lifetime .478 hitter against tonight's starting pitcher, Chris Sale. Danny Valencia will DH and bat third for the A's on Saturday. Aug 20, 1:51 pm
  • Mets activate Asdrubal Cabrera from 15-day DL
    Mets activated INF Asdrubal Cabrera from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: He's back in the lineup on Friday night, as is lineup-mate Yoenis Cespedes. Cabrera returns to a .255/.308/.410 slash line on the season, where he has been a solid performer and capable run producer. His bat has been sorely missed in the Mets lineup. Aug 19, 5:16 pm
