  • 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 Today, 5:51 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 Today, 3:40 pm

  • Asdrubal Cabrera hits grand slam in 17-0 rout
    Asdrubal Cabrera finished 2-for-5 with four RBI in the Mets' 17-0 rout of the Phillies on Sunday.

    Advice: That's not a football score. Jose Reyes also drove in four runs for the Mets in the afternoon outburst at Citi Field, and Curtis Granderson slugged his 30th home run of the season. Cabrera singled in the sixth inning and popped a grand slam off Frank Herrmann in the seventh. The veteran shortstop has been a steadying force for the Mets all season, now with a .281/.336/.482 batting line and 23 homers in 135 games. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:59 pm
  • Didi Gregorius goes deep in loss to Blue Jays
    Didi Gregorius slugged a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Gregorius' dinger off of Marco Estrada to lead off the seventh inning knotted the game up at the time. The Yankees wound up taking the lead in the top of the ninth but then gave in back in the bottom of the frame. Gregorius' 19 longballs exceed his previous career high by 10.

  • Danny Valencia sitting out on Sunday
    Danny Valencia is not in the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a routine day off. Matt Olson is in right field Sunday. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:16 am
    W, 7-1 vs Tex
     
  • Matt Wieters not in Sunday's lineup
    Matt Wieters is absent from the Orioles' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's just getting a breather. Caleb Joseph will do the catching. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:36 am
  • Jose Iglesias scratched from Tigers' lineup
    Jose Iglesias was a late scratch from the Tigers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Chris McCosky of the Detroit News says that Iglesias "was tore up pretty good" by the death of fellow Cuban Jose Fernandez and it appears that's the reason for him being scratched. Andrew Romine has replaced Iglesias at shortstop. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:40 am
  • Max Kepler (neck) singles in return to action
    Max Kepler (neck) singled in one of his three plate appearances in his return to the lineup Saturday.

    Advice: Kepler was removed from Thursday's contest and sat out Friday with a mild neck strain. It doesn't appear it will be an issue for him moving forward. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:25 am
    L, 4-3 vs Sea
     
  • Jose Iglesias (hand) back in action Saturday
    Jose Iglesias (hand) singled and scored a run in five trips to the plate Saturday against the Royals.

    Advice: Iglesias had to be lifted from Friday's game after an errant throw from third base hit his right hand as he crossed first base. However, he didn't wind up needing any additional down time as it turned out. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:23 am
  • Pagan goes 3-for-5 with an RBI, run and steal
    Angel Pagan went 3-for-5 with an RBI, stole a base and scored a run in the Giants' extra-inning win on Saturday.

    Advice: He drove in a run with a single in the first inning. He scored the go-ahead run in the 10th inning on a Kelby Tomlinson single. Pagan has a .273 batting average with 11 bombs, 51 RBI and 66 runs scored in 122 games this year. He has pitched in 14 stolen bases as well. He is a decent extra outfielder in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:19 pm
  • 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 Yesterday, 10:13 pm

  • Renfroe swats first big league homer Saturday
    Hunter Renfroe went 2-for-4, scored twice and hit his first major league home run on Saturday versus the Giants.

    Advice: He launched a solo homer off Madison Bumgarner in the fourth inning. He doubled and scored in the sixth. Renfroe hit 30 home runs at Triple-A this season. The 24-year-old former first round draft pick is getting his first cup of coffee in the majors this month. He will likely work his way into the Padres' starting lineup early next season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:11 pm
  • Schebler collects three hits, two runs scored
    Scott Schebler went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in a win over the Brewers on Saturday.

    Advice: The outfielder had a double to go with two singles in the contest. The 25-year-old had a terrible start to the year, leading to his demotion in early May, but he's making up for it with a strong finish. Schebler is now hitting .320 in September with a homer, 11 RBI and 11 runs scored this month. He's batting .256/.322/.420 overall. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:53 pm
  • Santana hits 10th homer in loss to Reds
    Domingo Santana hit his 10th home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Reds.

    Advice: The Brewers had just six hits and only two extra-base hits against Dan Straily and company, with Santana's solo shot off Straily in the second inning turning out to be the only run the Brewers could push across in the loss. Santana now has 10 homers in 70 games this season, with six of those coming since he was activated from the disabled list on August 19 after missing almost two months with an elbow injury. A healthy Santana should contend for a starting spot in the Brewers' outfield in 2017. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:48 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 Yesterday, 9:17 pm

  • Werth helps lead Nationals to NL East title
    Jayson Werth went 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored, and the Nationals beat the Pirates 6-1 on Saturday.

    Advice: The win, coupled with the Mets' loss to the Phillies, handed the Nationals their third NL East crown in the last five years. The 37-year-old has had a hand in that, hitting 20 homers with 68 RBI and 82 runs scored while batting .249/.337/.422 in 137 games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Asdrubal Cabrera back in Mets lineup Saturday
    Asdrubal Cabrera (quadriceps) returned to the Mets starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Cabrera was forced to make an early exit on Friday due to soreness in his right quad, it isn't enough to keep him out of Saturday's lineup though. He'll bat second against Alec Asher and the Phillies on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:43 pm
  • Asdrubal Cabrera leaves with sore quadriceps
    Asdrubal Cabrera was forced to leave Friday's game against the Phillies with a sore right quadriceps.

    Advice: Cabrera is sore from fouling a ball off of his leg, but he was able to avoid any significant injury which is a big sigh of relief for the Mets. He could sit out on Saturday as a precautionary measure, but isn't expected to be sidelined for long. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:09 pm
  • Iglesias day-to-day with hand contusion
    Jose Iglesias has been diagnosed with a right hand contusion and is listed as day-to-day.

    Advice: The defensive wizard was hit in the hand by an errant throw while running the bases in Friday's victory over the Royals. It wouldn't be surprising to see Andrew Romine start in his place on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:51 pm
  • Jose Iglesias leaves game with hand injury
    Jose Iglesias was forced to leave Friday's game against the Royals after being hit on the hand by an errant throw.

    Advice: Iglesias got drilled on the right hand by a wild throw from Cheslor Cuthbert as he crossed first base. He remained in the game to run for himself, but was replaced by Andrew Romine defensively the next half inning. Expect the Tigers to provide an update on his status after the conclusion of Friday's game. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:42 pm
  • Max Kepler (neck) available off the bench
    Max Kepler (neck) is not in the Twins' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Kepler was lifted from Thursday's game with a mild neck strain. He did report improvement Friday and is available off the bench. Logan Schafer will cover right field Friday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:02 pm

  • Cabrera plays walk-off hero in 11-inning win
    Asdrubal Cabrera was the hero in Thursday's marathon, 11-inning win over the Phillies, hitting a three-run, walk-off homer in the 9-8 victory.

    Advice: Cabrera had three hits in the game, none bigger than the blast to right field in the 11th with two runners on to save the day -- and perhaps the Mets' season. He knew it, too, delivering an all-time bat flip toward an ecstatic Mets dugout before rounding the bases and being mobbed at home plate. It's been a magical season for the 30-year-old, who has 22 home runs in his first year with the Metropolitans. Cabrera is batting .281/.335/.480 through 132 games overall. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:57 pm
  • Kepler leaves game with mild neck strain
    Max Kepler was removed from Thursday's contest with a mild neck strain.

    Advice: He sustained the injury when he was crunched into a wall in foul territory by teammate Kennys Vargas while chasing down a fly ball. He should be considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:58 pm

  • Cabrera swats two-run bomb vs Braves
    Asdrubal Cabrera went 1-for-5 and swatted a two-run bomb versus the Braves on Wednesday.

    Advice: After Jose Reyes walked and stole second base in the first inning, Cabrera jolted one over the right field fence for his 21st homer of the season. He has a .278 batting average to go with 52 RBI and 61 runs scored. He had a pedestrian first half of the season but has really turned it on since the All Star break. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:33 pm
  • Padres promote Hunter Renfroe from El Paso
    Padres purchased the contract of OF Hunter Renfroe from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Renfroe was one of the top hitters in the Pacific Coast League this summer, slashing .306/.336/.557 with 30 homers and 105 RBI in 133 games for the El Paso Chihuahuas, whose season ended Tuesday in the Triple-A championship. The plan probably calls for him to make three or four starts over the Padres' final 11 games, which doesn't offer much fantasy appeal. Renfroe, the 13th overall pick in the 2013 MLB June Amateur Draft, will challenge for a starting job with San Diego leading into 2017. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:05 pm
  • Padres calling up Renfroe, Margot and others
    Padres manager Andy Green confirmed late Tuesday that the club is calling up prospects Hunter Renfroe, Manuel Margot, Austin Hedges, and Carlos Asuaje.

    Advice: We were hoping this might happen three weeks ago so that Renfroe and Margot -- both top-100 prospects -- might be of some fantasy use, but the El Paso Chihuahuas made a run all the way to the Triple-A championship before falling to the Yankees' Scranton/Wilkes-Barre affiliate on Tuesday night in Memphis. Renfroe, 24, batted .306/.336/.557 with 30 home runs and 105 RBI in 133 games this season at the Triple-A level. Margot, 21, hit .304/.351/.426 with six home runs and 30 stolen bases in 124 games. They'll both be appearing in the majors for the first time. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:06 am
  • 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
    W, 7-1 vs Tex
     
  • Asdrubal Cabrera goes 3-for-3 in loss
    Asdrubal Cabrera went 3-for-3 with an RBI double and a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Braves.

    Advice: He also added a stolen base. The Mets managed just eight hits on the night, as Cabrera was the only one with more than one. He's been on quite a roll since returning from the disabled list late last month, batting .365 with seven homers and 17 RBI over 30 games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:24 pm
  • Rosales clobbers 10th homer in loss Sunday
    Adam Rosales clobbered his 10th home run of the season in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

    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

  • Scott Schebler goes 3-for-4 against Pirates
    Scott Schebler went 3-for-4 with a double and three runs scored Sunday against the Pirates.

    Advice: With a .265 average and a .770 OPS in 219 at-bats, Schebler is making a decent case to open next season as the lefty portion of a platoon in one of the Reds' corner outfield spots. He doesn't have a whole lot of upside beyond this, though. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 1:10 pm
  • Max Kepler not in Sunday's lineup
    Max Kepler is not in the Twins' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It looks to be a routine day off. Joe Mauer and Eduardo Escobar are also sitting out, as the Twins have Logan Schafer in right field, Kennys Vargas at first base and James Beresford at third base. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 8:10 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

  • Asdrubal Cabrera returns to lineup Saturday
    Asdrubal Cabrera (leg) returned to the Mets starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: He was forced to leave Friday's game in the eighth inning due to leg cramps, but it appears to have been only a minor issue. He'll bat second against Ervin Santana and the Twins on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Sep 17, 12:58 pm
  • Asdrubal Cabrera leaves game with leg cramps
    Asdrubal Cabrera was forced to leave Friday's game against the Twins due to leg cramps.

    Advice: The Mets are calling his early exit precautionary, so he should return to the starting lineup on Saturday. He also clubbed his 20th homer of the season before departing Friday's contest. Rotoworld.com Sep 16, 9:09 pm
  • Cabrera socks 20th homer Friday vs. Twins
    Asdrubal Cabrera connected for a solo homer run and walked twice against the Twins on Friday.

    Advice: After Jose Reyes led off the bottom of the third inning with a solo blast, Cabrera followed with a bomb of his own. The veteran infielder is still hobbled with a knee injury (and left Friday’s game after the eighth inning due to leg cramping), but he’s now reached 20 homers for the first time since 2011. His .800 OPS is the best of his career. Rotoworld.com Sep 16, 7:03 pm
  • O's and Wieters to discuss contract extension
    Matt Wieters' agent Scott Boras will be in Baltimore on Monday to begin discussing a contract extension with the Orioles.

    Advice: Boras believes that there is mutual interest in getting a deal done, with Wieters' preference to remain in Baltimore. Wieters could have hit free agency after the 2015 season, but the club offered him the one-year, $15.3 million qualifying offer. After a rebound season offensively, he'll land quite the lucrative multi-year deal this winter. Rotoworld.com Sep 16, 4:47 pm
  • Wieters has two RBI, scores twice versus Rays
    Matt Wieters went 2-for-4 with a two-run single and two runs scored against the Rays on Thursday.

    Advice: Wieters came through with the bases loaded in the first inning, plating two runs with a single off Rays starter Blake Snell. The All-Star also had a double in the game. Wieters has proven relatively durable this year, playing in 110 games for the first time since 2013, but his offense has been largely pedestrian. The 30-year-old is hitting .243/.299/.402 with 14 homers and 60 RBI overall. Rotoworld.com Sep 15, 8:37 pm
  • Healy homers among three hits against Royals
    Ryon Healy went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Royals.

    Advice: Healy demolished an Edinson Volquez offering in the third inning, parking it in the upper deck 472 feet away. The homer was his 10th in 56 games this year, and he's hit four in his last eight games. The 24-year-old has had an impressive debut, batting .309/.344/.525 overall. Rotoworld.com Sep 15, 8:04 pm
    W, 7-1 vs Tex
     
  • Domingo Santana cranks three-run shot
    Domingo Santana went 2-for-4 and pounded a three-run homer against the Reds on Wednesday.

    Advice: The home run came off reliever Ross Ohlendorf but it still counts. He hit it in the eighth inning to bury any hopes the Reds may have had for a comeback. Santana missed a lot of time due to a bum elbow this year. He has hit well when given the chance, slashing .255/.355/.435 with eight home runs in 184 at-bats. The 23-year-old is a huge guy with big power but has hit for nice batting averages in the minors as well. Rotoworld.com Sep 14, 9:01 pm
