  • Enrique Burgos gives up four runs in ninth
    After entering the ninth with a 9-5 lead, Enrique Burgos gave up four runs without retiring a batter Wednesday against the Braves.

    Advice: Burgos just got the closer gig from Jake Barrett last week, but he's probably thrown it away now (he also blew a save on Monday). The Diamondbacks could go back to Barrett or turn to Daniel Hudson, who has put together a nice August following his July implosion. We'd say Hudson is worth a shot. 53 minutes ago
  • Mets bring southpaw Gilmartin up to majors
    Mets recalled LHP Sean Gilmartin from Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Gilmartin held a 2.67 ERA in 57 1/3 innings last season, but he has yet to find that kind of success in 2016. The 26-year-old southpaw has made five appearances with the Mets this season and has allowed seven runs on 11 hits in nine innings. There is no fantasy intrigue here. Today, 9:05 pm

  • Mets option Erik Goeddel back to Triple-A
    Mets optioned RHP Erik Goeddel to Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Goeddel was just up for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals. He tossed 1 2/3 innings of two-run ball in the 8-1 loss. Goeddel has pitched to a 4.55 ERA in 29 1/3 innings at the major league level this season. Now back to Triple-A. Today, 9:00 pm
  • Rays call Sturdevant up to big league club
    Rays recalled RHP Tyler Strudevant from Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Strudevant pitched to a 4.08 ERA and 12/6 K/BB ratio in 17 2/3 innings previous innings with the Rays this season. Prior to the call-up, He had been toiling away in Durham since the middle of July. There is no fantasy intrigue here. Today, 8:42 pm

  • Gee yields three runs in 5 1/3 frames
    Dillon Gee was charged with three runs in 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Marlins on Wednesday.

    Advice: Gee hung zeroes on the scoreboard until the 6th inning when all three runs scored. After getting the first batter out he allowed four consecutive singles to bring in two runs. He was then relieved by Peter Moylan, who gave up a sacrifice fly to let in the third run charged to Gee. The one bad inning spoiled what was shaping up to be an impressive outing. He now has a 5-7 record and 4.55 ERA with 80 strikeouts and 30 walks in 99 innings. Today, 7:19 pm

  • Bedrosian diagnosed with blood clot in arm
    Cam Bedrosian (finger) has been diagnosed with a blood clot in his upper right arm.

    Advice: The blood clot was discovered in an angiogram. Bedrosian will visit a vascular specialist to determine his next course of action. The Angels placed him on the disabled list with right middle finger flexor tendinitis at the beginning of August. This new health complication compounds matters. His path forward should become more clear after he receives his additional medical checkup. Today, 6:24 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Jon Niese has torn meniscus in left knee
    Updating a previous item, Jon Niese will undergo surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee on Thursday.

    Advice: It had already been reported that Niese would be undergoing surgery on the knee, but the Mets have now shined a little light as to the exact nature of his injury. Per the New York Times' James Wagner, Thursday's arthroscopic surgery comes with an expected recovery period of around four weeks. Which will almost certainly end his season. Robert Gsellman is taking Niese's rotation spot for now. Today, 4:38 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Yankees option Mitchell after DL activation
    Yankees activated RHP Bryan Mitchell from the 60-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: Mitchell underwent surgery all the way back in April to repair a fractured left big toe. While manager Joe Girardi said in late June that there was no expectation that Mitchell would be able to return this season, he might just have beaten his timetable. He will continue to work to regain his form at Triple-A. Today, 4:11 pm

  • Cubs knock Clemens for five runs into sixth
    Paul Clemens proved ineffective in Wednesday's loss to the Cubs, surrendering five runs (four earned) on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Clemens struck out six without walking a batter on the afternoon. The Cubs struck for three of the five runs on his line in the very first inning, with Ben Zobrist's two-run triple serving as the key blow. Through 42 2/3 innings, the 28-year-old right-hander holds a rough 5.06 ERA and 1.55 WHIP. A road start against the Braves shows next on his schedule. Today, 3:52 pm
    L, 6-3 vs ChC
  • Jon Niese to undergo surgery on his left knee
    Mets manager Terry Collins said that Jon Niese will undergo surgery on his left knee.

    Advice: Niese was lifted from Tuesday's game against the Cardinals after he felt a noticeable pain in his left knee. The New York Times' James Wagner is reporting that this is expected to be a relatively minor procedure, one that should take about four weeks to recover from. Still, that will end his season. Robert Gsellman will fill Niese's rotation spot moving forward. Prior to the injury, Niese held a 5.50 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in 121 innings between the Pirates and Mets. Today, 2:30 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Belisle unavailable for Wednesday vs. O's
    Matt Belisle will not be available for Wednesday's game against the Orioles.

    Advice: Belisle tossed three innings in Tuesday's 8-1 loss, so Nationals manager Dusty Baker will give him a day off to let him rest up. This season, the 36-year-old right-hander holds an impressive 1.89 ERA and 28/6 K/BB ratio over 38 innings. Today, 1:23 pm
  • Blazek's forearm rehab slow-going so far
    Brewers manager Craig Counsell told reporters Wednesday that Michael Blazek's forearm rehab is "going a little slower than we anticipated."

    Advice: Counsell added that there's no way of telling at this point when Blazek might return. The right-hander landed on the disabled list August 14 with a forearm strain. He had a disappointing 5.58 ERA, 1.88 WHIP, and 36/25 K/BB ratio through 40 1/3 innings this season out of the Milwaukee bullpen. Today, 9:50 am
    15-Day DL

  • Jacob Barnes (elbow) ready for rehab games
    Jacob Barnes (elbow) has been cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment on Friday.

    Advice: Barnes was placed on the disabled list July 27 with right elbow soreness after posting a decent 3.71 ERA and 18/4 K/BB ratio over 17 innings out of the Milwaukee bullpen. He should return to the Brewers' active roster shortly after rosters expand on September 1. Today, 9:42 am
    15-Day DL

  • Huston Street undergoes right knee surgery
    Huston Street underwent successful surgery on his right knee Wednesday.

    Advice: Street is done for the season, but it was an arthroscopic procedure -- not something more involved -- and the veteran right-hander is expected to be 100 percent by the beginning of spring training next February. He tweeted this from the hospital Wednesday morning: "Just got out of surgery, still pretty loopy, but the doc said I should come back throwing 98, but it could have been 89." Street, 33, finished the 2016 season with a rough 6.45 ERA, 1.93 WHIP, and 14/12 K/BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings. Fernando Salas is currently serving as the Angels' closer, by default. Today, 8:32 am
    15-Day DL

  • Oliver Perez (back) struggles in return Tues.
    Oliver Perez (back) allowed a run on two hits and a walk Tuesday in his return to action.

    Advice: Perez had been unavailable for a handful of days due to tightness in his back. The veteran lefty has struggled mightily in August and now has a 5.71 ERA for the year. Today, 5:36 am
  • Friedrich proves ineffective in loss to Cubs
    Christian Friedrich failed to impress in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs, surrendering five runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Friedrich struck out just two while walking four. Three of the five runs on his line came home via the home run, with Kris Bryant cracking a solo shot in the third and Addison Russell mashing a two-run shot as part of a three-run fifth. Friedrich will carry a limp 4.89 ERA and 1.49 WHIP into a road start against the Braves next time he toes the rubber. Yesterday, 10:09 pm
  • Mets recall Goeddel after Niese injury
    Mets recalled RHP Erik Goeddel from Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Goeddel was just sent down on Saturday, but the Mets recalled him with Jon Niese landing on the disabled list due to a left knee injury. In 28 bullpen innings with the Mets this season, Goeddel held a 4.18 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 27/7 K/BB ratio. His is a serviceable filler arm out of the pen, but there is no fantasy intrigue here. Yesterday, 9:56 pm
  • Mets place Niese on DL due to knee injury
    Mets placed LHP Jon Niese on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee injury.

    Advice: Niese was forced out of Tuesday's start versus the Cardinals after feeling a shooting pain in his left knee. He managed to record just one out in the first inning before being attended to by the training staff. In a corresponding move, Erik Goeddel was recalled from Triple-A. At this early stage, there is no timetable for Niese's return. Yesterday, 9:54 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Street will undergo knee surgery Wednesday
    Huston Street will undergo season-ending surgery Wednesday on his right knee.

    Advice: It'll be an arthroscopic procedure, which should allow Street to enter spring training in 2017 at 100 percent. The 33-year-old right-hander wound up with a highly disappointing 6.45 ERA, 1.93 WHIP, and 14/12 K/BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings this season. He's due $9 million from Anaheim next year with a $10 million club option (or $1 million buyout) for 2018. Yesterday, 7:59 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Jon Niese departs start with left knee pain
    Jon Niese exited his start Tuesday against the Cardinals due to left knee pain.

    Advice: Niese walked two and gave up an RBI single to Brandon Moss before leaving with a trainer with one out in the bottom of the first inning. He was eventually charged with three earned runs. Robert Gsellman took over, making his major league debut. Niese could be placed on the disabled list Wednesday with the Mets badly needing a fresh arm. Yesterday, 6:04 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Jon Niese pulled from start in first inning
    Jon Niese left his Tuesday start against the Cardinals in the first inning due to an apparent injury.

    Advice: Niese, who has been pitching through a sore knee, yielded two walks and an RBI single to Brandon Moss before exiting with one out in the bottom of the first inning. This after being handed a 3-0 lead in the top of the first. Look for an update soon from St. Louis. Yesterday, 5:38 pm
    15-Day DL
    L, 8-1 @StL
  • Huston Street expected to have knee surgery
    Huston Street is expected to undergo season-ending knee surgery.

    Advice: It's a fitting end to a disastrous season for the veteran closer. Street was rarely healthy this year and struggled when he was, collecting a miserable 6.45 ERA over 26 outings. Rookie Cam Bedrosian (finger) has surpassed him and would probably be the favorite for saves if he were healthy. Fernando Salas has filled in at closer the past couple weeks. The Angels' bullpen has been a complete mess this year. Yesterday, 12:58 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Enrique Burgos blows save
    Giving the ninth with a one-run lead, Enrique Burgos gave up a homer to Freddie Freeman and took a blown save Monday.

    Advice: Burgos got the win when the Diamondbacks came back and scored in the bottom of the ninth. He's taken three blown saves in his last four appearances, but this is the first of those that have come in the ninth. He could get the Diamondbacks' next save chance anyway. Monday, 10:20 pm
  • Oliver Perez sidelined due to back tightness
    Oliver Perez has been unavailable the past couple of days due to tightness in his back.

    Advice: The Nationals hope that he's ready to return to action on Monday, but if he isn't he could necessitate a trip to the disabled list to get a fresh arm in there. The 35-year-old southpaw has been a major disappointment this season, registering a 5.61 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 38/18 K/BB ratio over 33 2/3 innings. Sunday, 4:12 pm
  • Huston Street (knee) could undergo surgery
    Huston Street will receive a second opinion on his ailing right knee and could opt to undergo season-ending surgery.

    Advice: Street has been sidelined all month with a knee issue and apparently hasn't experienced improvement as hoped. It's unclear what the specifics of the operations might be if he has one, but it's not expected to be anything that would threaten his availability for the start of 2017. Fernando Salas is currently filling in as the Angels' closer. Sunday, 10:56 am
    15-Day DL
    W, 8-2 @Tor
  • Burgos strikes out two, snares first save
    Enrique Burgos struck out two and walked one in the ninth inning to earn his first save of the season on Saturday versus the Padres.

    Advice: Burgos may have become the current occupant of the Diamondbacks' musical chair at closer. He is not a great option but everyone else in their bullpen has tried and failed to hold the job. Burgos has a good strikeout rate but walks have been a real problem throughout his career, even in the minors. He has a 3.07 ERA with 31 punchouts and 15 walks in 29 1/3 innings. Owners should grab him if he is available but don't expect him to run away with the job for long. Saturday, 9:01 pm
  • Mets option Erik Goeddel back to Triple-A
    Mets optioned RHP Erik Goeddel to Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Goeddel was sent out to make room on the roster for Jim Henderson who is returning from the disabled list on Saturday. The 27-year-old registered a 4.18 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 27/7 K/BB ratio over 28 innings out of the Mets bullpen. He'll surely return once rosters expand in September. Saturday, 10:42 am
  • Enrique Burgos moving into closer role?
    Enrique Burgos holds a 0.87 ERA and 23/10 K/BB ratio over 20 2/3 relief innings since being recalled last month.

    Advice: He hasn't earned any saves yet over that stretch, but Jake Barrett has struggled of late and it looks like Burgos might move into the ninth inning. The 25-year-old hasn't given up an earned run in his last 13 appearances, although he did serve up a bases-clearing double Thursday (all three runs were charged to Barrett). Burgos is worth a speculative pick-up in fantasy leagues. Friday, 8:53 am
  • Clemens allows three runs over five innings
    Paul Clemens was serviceable in Thursday's no-decision against the Diamondbacks, surrendering three runs on eight hits over five innings.

    Advice: Clemens struck out three and walked three on the evening. Jean Segura scooted on home thanks to a wild pitch in the first inning, with Welington Castillo adding an RBI single later in that same frame. The final run on Clemens' line scored on an RBI single by Castillo (him again) in the fifth inning. The 28-year-old right-hander has worked both as a reliever and a starter this season, pitching to a 4.82 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 27/20 K/BB ratio over 37 1/3 innings. A potentially dicey home start against the Cubs shows next on his schedule. Thursday, 11:15 pm
    L, 6-3 vs ChC
  • Gee tosses seven strong innings against Twins
    Dillon Gee pitched well over seven innings Thursday, holding the Twins to one run on five hits while striking out seven in a win.

    Advice: Gee has been all over the map this season, but one of the few places he hasn't been is the dominant territory he lived in for much of the night Thursday. Gee induced ground balls on 61 percent of the balls in play, and even the Twins' run came on a mistake that Brian Dozier punished for a solo homer. The rest of the Twins hits were singles. Gee is now 5-6 with a 4.52 ERA in 93 2/3 innings of work, and he'll look to keep the magic going -- although we're skeptical, to say the least -- Wednesday against the Marlins. Thursday, 9:32 pm
    L, 3-0 @Mia
  • Jon Niese gives up four runs to Arizona
    Jon Niese yielded four runs in 4 2/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: If it makes him feel better, the four relievers that followed Niese to the mound combined to give up nine runs in 3 1/3 innings. Niese will probably remain in the rotation for now, but fantasy leaguers should want no part of him. Wednesday, 10:13 pm
    15-Day DL
    L, 8-1 @StL
  • Cam Bedroisian (finger) to throw on Thursday
    Cam Bedrosian (finger) will resume throwing on Thursday.

    Advice: The Angels placed Bedrosian on the disabled list with a flexor tendinitis in the right middle finger retroactive to August 4. If all goes well as he starts his throwing program, a rehab assignment would be on the horizon, with a potential return to the majors possible in late August or early September. Wednesday, 7:12 pm
    15-Day DL
    W, 8-2 @Tor
  • Friedrich takes loss versus Tampa Bay
    Christian Friedrich surrendered two earned runs over 6 2/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Rays.

    Advice: Friedrich got zero support from the Padres offense, which has been a pretty common theme all year. He struck out five and walked just one, but Brad Miller slugged a two-run homer in the bottom of the first inning and that's all the firepower Tampa Bay needed. Friedrich will carry a 4-9 record and 4.69 ERA into his next start at home against the Cubs. Wednesday, 12:46 pm
  • Brewers place Blazek on 15-day DL
    Brewers placed RHP Michael Blazek on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 14, with a right forearm strain.

    Advice: Damien Magnifico will replace him on the active roster. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined. Blazek owns an ugly 5.58 ERA and 36/25 K/BB ratio over 40 1/3 innings this season. Tuesday, 6:22 am
    15-Day DL
