  • Eflin to undergo left knee surgery
    Zach Eflin is scheduled to undergo left knee surgery within the next few days.

    Advice: Eflin's season ended seven weeks ago after he was diagnosed with patellar tendinopathy in both of his knees and a stress fracture in his right foot. He had his right knee surgically repaired on August 19, and now doctors will take care of the other knee. Eflin is aiming to be fully recovered by the start of spring training in February.

  • Alex Meyer strikes out five against A's
    Alex Meyer allowed two runs in four innings and struck out five Wednesday in his start against the A's.

    Advice: The Twins were going back and forth on Meyer as a starter or a reliever. The Angels tried him in the rotation this month after getting him in the Hector Santiago deal, and he had a 4.57 ERA and a 24/13 K/BB ratio in 21 2/3 innings over five starts. That should be good enough to keep him in the mix for a rotation spot next spring. The Angels aren't going to be able to be too picky. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:31 pm
  • Luis Perdomo gives up five runs in win
    Luis Perdomo surrendered five runs in five innings Wednesday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Perdomo gave up three homers, two of them coming in the first. It brought his total to 23 homers allowed in 146 2/3 innings on the season. Still, he picked up a win, leaving him 9-10 with a 5.71 ERA. He was surprisingly competent, if not exactly effective, after moving into the Padres rotation in mid-June, which qualifies as a success considering that he was a Rule 5 pick who never pitched above A ball prior to this year. He'll open next season back in the minors, probably in Triple-A, but he should again be a factor in the Padres rotation. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:20 pm
  • Jose De Leon roughed up by Padres
    Jose De Leon was tagged for five runs -- three earned -- in 2 1/3 innings by the Padres on Wednesday.

    Advice: This probably eliminates De Leon for consideration from the postseason roster. He posted a 6.35 ERA in his four starts for the Dodgers. Still, his future is awfully promising. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:16 pm
  • Tyler Chatwood goes eight scoreless in win
    Tyler Chatwood allowed three hits over eight scoreless innings and struck out nine Wednesday in beating the Giants.

    Advice: Chatwood's season ends much like it started. The middle wasn't as pleasant, but he showed what he can do while healthy; he allowed one or no runs in 10 of his 27 starts. What he does need to demonstrate is that he can stay healthy; his 27 starts and 158 innings this season were new career highs. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:12 pm
  • Miguel Gonzalez goes 8 1/3 scoreless in win
    Miguel Gonzalez pitched 8 1/3 innings of three-hit ball in the White Sox's 1-0 win over the Rays on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Orioles chose to save $4 million by cutting Gonzalez this spring. It's a mistake that might cost them the wild card, as Gonzalez posted a 3.73 ERA in 23 starts (and one relief appearance) for the White Sox. Orioles starters have a 4.80 ERA at the moment. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:47 pm
  • Blake Snell has final start cut short
    Blake Snell pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings before a rain delay ended his start Wednesday against the White Sox.

    Advice: It was shaping up as a strong one for Snell; he had struck out four and allowed just one hit before play was halted. Barring an appearance on short rest this weekend, he'll conclude his rookie season 6-8 with a 3.54 ERA. He struck out 98 in 89 innings, but he also walked 51. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:45 pm
  • Bryan Mitchell blanks Red Sox
    Bryan Mitchell shut out the Red Sox for seven innings Wednesday, allowing just two hits.

    Advice: The Yankees have always been high on Mitchell, but he was essentially a non-factor this year after fracturing a toe in April. Having such a strong outing in his final regular-season start will help with the wishcasting for 2017, though we're still skeptical that he'll last as a starter. He'll likely compete for a rotation spot in spring training. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:35 pm
  • Anderson yields four runs in five innings Wed
    Chase Anderson allowed four runs -- three earned -- in five innings but escaped with a no-decision although his team lost to the Rangers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He gave up eight hits and two walks while fanning only two batters on the evening. He got off to a rough start as he gave up three runs in the first inning before settling down to give up just one more run over the next four frames. Anderson finishes his season with a 9-11 record after 30 starts. He has a 4.39 ERA with 120 strikeouts in 151 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:17 pm
  • Leake allows two runs in loss to Reds
    Mike Leake allowed two earned runs over five innings Wednesday in the Cardinals' loss to the Reds.

    Advice: It was much better than some of his other recent outings, but the Cardinals could muster only one run of support on seven hits. Leake struck out six and walked none, and the two runs against him came on a bloop single by Adam Duvall in the top of the third inning. Leake finishes the 2016 regular season with a 9-12 record, 4.69 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 125/30 K/BB ratio in 176 2/3 innings. He's under contract with St. Louis through 2020 on a five-year, $80 million deal he signed last winter. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:09 pm
  • Tillman gives up two runs in 5 2/3 frames Wed
    Chris Tillman gave up two runs -- one earned -- in 5 2/3 innings but didn't stick around long enough to get the win as the Orioles came back late to beat the Blue Jays 3-2 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Both runs scored on sacrifice flies in the first and second innings. He gave up six hits and three bases-on-balls while striking out just two batters on the night. It was a nice bounce-back effort for a guy who has pitched quite poorly down the stretch. He will take a nice 16-6 record and 3.77 ERA into the offseason. He is likely to be rewarded with a lucrative free agent contract this winter. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:06 pm
  • Dodgers release right-hander Bud Norris
    Dodgers released RHP Bud Norris.

    Advice: Norris was designated for assignment last week and passed through waivers unclaimed. The 31-year-old right-hander pitched to a rough 5.10 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 102/49 K/BB ratio across 113 innings between the Braves and Dodgers this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:56 pm

  • Yovani Gallardo slated to start on Friday
    Yovani Gallardo will make his final start of the regular season in Friday's game against the Yankees.

    Advice: Gallardo and the O's are currently in the lead for the second Wild Card, with the Tigers (1.0 GB), Mariners (1.5 GB) and Astros (3.0 GB) all nipping at their heels. Wade Miley and Kevin Gausman are likely to start the final two games against New York. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:44 pm
  • Doug Fister blasted in Astros' loss to M's
    Doug Fister was torched for five earned runs in just 1 1/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Fister walked one and gave up five hits, including a three-run homer to Robinson Cano in the top of the first inning. The impending free agent right-hander posted an 11.79 ERA across six ugly starts in September and finishes the 2016 season with a record of 12-13. Fister may have to settle for a get-right one-year deal on the open market, though the lack of quality starting pitching options will probably help his case. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:44 pm
  • Cobb struggles early and often in loss to Sox
    Alex Cobb allowed eight runs on eight hits over three innings in a loss to the White Sox on Tuesday.

    Advice: Cobb didn't discriminate with his awfulness, allowing at least two runs in each of his three innings of work. That included a pair of homers, a two-run job in the first inning and a three-run shot in the third. After posting a nice 3.06 ERA through his first three starts back from Tommy John surgery, Cobb has now allowed 15 runs in his last 4 1/3 innings. He'll get one more chance to get some work in during the 2016 season on Sunday, when the Rays travel to take on the Rangers. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:23 pm
  • De Leon to start Wednesday vs. Padres
    Jose De Leon will start Wednesday against the Padres.

    Advice: De Leon was originally scheduled start on Tuesday, but Kenta Maeda will move up a day to start instead. The rookie right-hander has posted a 5.52 ERA through his first three starts in the majors. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:28 am
  • Meyer gives up four runs in no-decision
    Alex Meyer yielded four runs in 5 1/3 innings Friday in a no-decision against the Astros.

    Advice: Meyer gave up just one run over his first five innings of work, but things fell apart for him in the sixth inning. He gave up an infield single and a pair of walks to load the bases before being pulled. All three baserunners eventually came around to score. The tall right-hander has shown some flashes, but he can’t be trusted in mixed fantasy leagues right now. He’ll finish his season with a start against the Athletics next time out. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:07 pm
  • Fister goes five innings in no-decision
    Doug Fister gave up two runs over five innings a no-decision against the Angels on Friday.

    Advice: Both runs scored in the second inning. Fister managed to finish five innings for just the third time in his last eight starts. The control has gotten worse and he has an ugly 7.36 ERA over his last nine starts, so there’s little fantasy appeal here. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:07 pm
  • Yovani Gallardo pitches well in no-decision
    Yovani Gallardo pitched well in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on Friday, allowing two runs on six hits over his six innings.

    Advice: The veteran right-hander punched out five while issuing two free passes. The Diamondbacks struck for single runs in the first and second innings, then Gallardo settled in and kept them off the scoreboard the remainder of his night. A major disappointment for most of the season, he'll carry a 5.63 ERA and 1.62 WHIP into his regular season finale against the Yankees in New York on Friday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:49 pm
  • Miguel Gonzalez hit hard in loss to Indians
    Miguel Gonzalez was hit hard in Friday's loss to the Indians, allowing four runs on eight hits in 4 1/3 innings.

    Advice: The right-hander struck out two and didn't walk a batter in the contest. He kept the Tribe's offense at bay through the first three innings, but they broke through in the fourth with a two-run homer from Jose Ramirez and tacked on another pair in the fifth before chasing him. He'll carry a 3.98 ERA and 1.29 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Rays. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:39 pm
  • Mitchell goes six innings in loss to Jays
    Bryan Mitchell gave up three runs (one earned) over six innings Friday in a loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Mitchell ran into all sorts of trouble early on in this one, so it’s impressive that he managed to make it through six innings. All told, he gave up six hits and four walks while striking out two batters. Mitchell has posted a 4.50 ERA and 9/7 K/BB ratio in 18 innings through four starts since being recalled by the Yankees. He’s not a fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:39 pm
  • Mike Leake turns in clunker versus Cubs
    Mike Leake lasted just 3 1/3 innings Friday, allowing five runs in a loss to the Cubs.

    Advice: The Cubs jumped on Leake early with four hits, a walk and four runs in the first inning. It turned out to be all they needed, as Jake Arrieta overmatched the Cardinals. Leake had put up two straight quality starts, but this was obviously another step backward. He'll take an ugly 4.72 ERA into next week's start versus the Reds. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:38 pm
  • Chatwood holds Dodgers to two runs in six IP
    Tyler Chatwood kept the Dodgers in check in Thursday's no-decision, allowing two runs on five hits over six innings.

    Advice: Chatwood had some issues with his control in this one, as he walked four and threw just 57 of his 102 pitches for strikes. He pitched well enough for the win and exited with a 4-2 lead, but the Rockies bullpen imploded like an imperfectly made submarine after he left the game, surrendering five runs in the seventh inning and ultimately falling by a final score of 7-4. The 26-year-old right-hander will bring a 4.08 ERA and 1.41 WHIP into a road showdown with the Giants in his final start of the season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:09 pm
  • Tillman gets quick hook against Red Sox
    Chris Tillman lasted just 1 2/3 innings against the Red Sox, allowing three runs on five hits in a no-decision.

    Advice: Tillman clearly didn't have it -- he also walked three during his time -- and Orioles manager Buck Showalter didn't hesitate to remove the starter in hopes of winning an important game for the Wild Card-hopeful Orioles. The clunker was rare for Tillman, who has been largely good in going 16-6 with a 3.84 ERA through 29 starts. The O's will need the 28-year-old to bounce back in a big way when they face off against another Wild Card team, the Blue Jays, next week. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:05 pm
  • Chase Anderson locks down Pirates into sixth
    Chase Anderson held the Pirates in check in Thursday's win, yielding one run on four hits over 5 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Anderson struck out six and walked one on the evening. He kept the scoreboard clean outside of a Francisco Cervelli solo home run in the fifth inning. For the season, the 28-year-old right-hander has pitched to a 4.36 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 113/51 K/BB ratio over 146 2/3 innings. His 2016 schedule will finish out with a road date with the Rangers next Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:05 pm
  • Snell tosses five scoreless in win over Yanks
    Blake Snell threw five shutout innings and the Rays blanked the Yankees 2-0 on Thursday.

    Advice: Snell scattered five hits and walked three, using six strikeouts to steer clear of any damage. The 23-year-old rookie has been the picture of inconsistency this year, but at the end of the day he's 6-8 with a 3.65 ERA through 18 starts. That's not too shabby in a tough AL East. Snell has at least one more start left in him before he calls it a year, and he'll take on the White Sox his next time out. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:31 pm
  • Luis Perdomo allows three runs in loss
    Luis Perdomo yielded three runs in seven innings Wednesday in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Perdomo remains awfully raw, but it's impressive that he's managing to hold his own for the most part. Since mid-June, he has a 4.26 ERA and a 72/26 K/BB ratio over 105 2/3 innings in 17 starts. That's a massive improvement on the 9.50 ERA he had previously. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:47 pm
  • Cobb gets shucked by Yankees on Wednesday
    Alex Cobb got taken out behind the woodshed on Wednesday as he was whipped for seven runs in just 1 1/3 innings in a loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: New York's batters had no trouble squaring up his pitches tonight. He gave up nine hits and a walk while retiring only four batters -- two via the strikeout. He was making his fourth start of the season. He entered the game with a 3.06 ERA and doubled it in a hurry, departing with a 6.16 ERA. He missed all of last year and most of this year recovering from arm surgery. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:45 pm
  • Dodgers DFA right-hander Bud Norris
    Dodgers designated RHP Bud Norris for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a 40-man roster spot for Alex Wood, who was activated off the 60-day disabled list Tuesday and will work out of the Dodgers' bullpen down the stretch. Norris had a 5.10 ERA through 19 starts and 16 relief appearances this season with Los Angeles. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:22 pm
