  • Anibal Sanchez (pectoral) to be activated Tue
    Anibal Sanchez (pectoral) will be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

    Advice: Sanchez, out since August 8 with a pectoral strain, was cleared to return after making it through a simulated game Sunday with no issues. There's no enough time to get him stretched out as a starter, so he'll pitch as a starter in the final days of the regular season and into the playoffs. Rotoworld.com

  • Nova progressing well from TJ surgery
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Monday that Ivan Nova has had zero setbacks and has progressed "extremely well" since Tommy John surgery.

    Advice: Nova, who had Tommy John surgery in April, began a throwing program in late August. Things could obviously change depending on how his rehab goes, but he's aiming for a return around next May. Rotoworld.com

  • Tanaka on track to pitch Saturday vs. Red Sox
    Masahiro Tanaka feels good and is on track to start against the Red Sox on Saturday.

    Advice: Good news. Tanaka looked sharp in his first start since July 8 on Sunday against the Blue Jays, allowing one run over 5 1/3 innings while striking out four and walking none. He threw 70 pitches in his return, but will be bumped up to 85 pitches for his final start of the season on Saturday. There haven't been many success stories with pitchers rehabbing a UCL tear, but things are looking up for Tanaka at the moment. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: It'll be his first start since taking a pitch off his right shoulder last Tuesday. Markakis is batting .272/.336/.375 with 12 home runs and 44 RBI in 149 games this season for the American League East champions. Rotoworld.com

    Mark Teixeira (wrist) is out of the Yankees' starting lineup again on Monday night.

    Advice: Teixeira also sat out Saturday due to lingering soreness in his right wrist.

  • Kipnis (hamstring) won't play Monday vs. KC
    Jason Kipnis (hamstring) won't play for the Indians on Monday night against the Royals.

    Advice: Kipnis will be replaced by Justin Sellers to finish out the suspended game (which begins at 6:05 p.m. ET) and he won't be in the starting lineup for the full game to be played after that. The second baseman tweaked his hamstring on Thursday and is still sore. He has a dissapointing .234/.314/.335 slash line this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Yankees claim OF Eury Perez off waivers
    Yankees claimed OF Eury Perez off waivers from the Nationals.

    Advice: Perez was designated for assignment by the Nats last week. He has a promising .310/.354/.411 slash line with 63 stolen bases in 193 career games at Triple-A, so the 24-year-old is worth a shot for the Yanks. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 11:23 am
  • LaRoche doesn't expect to re-sign with Nats
    Adam LaRoche said this weekend that he doesn't expect to re-sign with the Nationals over the winter.

    Advice: "If you had to ask me now, I would assume that I would have to move on, unfortunately," said the veteran first baseman, who is in the final year of a two-year, $24 million contract. Washington holds a $15 million option on LaRoche for 2015, but Ryan Zimmerman is probably going to have to move across the diamond for good and so the option on LaRoche likely won't be exercised.

  • Jennings (knee) won't play during final week
    Desmond Jennings (knee) is done for the season.

    Advice: Jennings has been on the shelf since August 28 due to discomfort in his left knee. It's beginning to show improvement, but the Rays aren't going to rush him back for the final week. "It's gotten better, it's coming along," Jennings told reporters Sunday evening. "I was worried at first, I'm not really as worried now." Rotoworld.com

  • Kipnis (hamstring) doubles in his return Sun.
    Jason Kipnis (hamstring) finished 2-for-5 with a double in his return to action Sunday.

    Advice: Kipnis tweaked his hamstring on Thursday and was held out of the Indians' starting lineup on Friday and Saturday, but he returned with a productive game Sunday and should be a full-go for the final week of the regular season. The 27-year-old second baseman will look to finish 2014 on a positive note. He's been a disappointment coming off his breakout 2013. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 5:41 am
  • Domonic Brown (hand) able to pinch-hit
    Domonic Brown (hand) struck out as a pinch-hitter in Sunday's loss to the Athletics.

    Advice: Brown was left out of the starting lineup for a third straight game due to a right hand injury and will probably remain limited over the final week of the regular season. It's been a hugely disappointing summer for the 27-year-old outfielder, who's batting .236/.287/.355 with only 10 home runs in 138 games. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 5:35 am
  • Benoit (shoulder) impressive in return Sunday
    Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) tossed a perfect inning Sunday in his first appearance since August 26.

    Advice: Benoit missed close to a month with a right shoulder injury. He struck out two of the three batters he faced Sunday in his return to action and could rack up another save or two before the 2014 regular season comes to a close. Benoit owns a stellar 1.55 ERA, 0.80 WHIP, and 62/14 K/BB ratio in 52 1/3 innings this season. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 5:30 am
  • Welingon Castillo (ribs) homers in return
    Welington Castillo (ribs) homered Sunday in his return to the Cubs' starting lineup.

    Advice: It was an eighth-inning solo shot off Dodgers reliever Pedro Baez. Castillo suffered a right rib contusion on Friday, but it's obviously feeling better now. The 27-year-old catcher has 12 home runs this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Adams (illness) remains out of lineup
    Matt Adams (illness) remains out of the Cardinals starting lineup for Sunday night's game against the Reds.

    Advice: Adams and teammate Matt Carpenter have been battling a stomach bug and didn't report enough improvement after sitting out Saturday's contest to warrant a return to the lineup. He should be fine in a day or two. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 5:15 pm
  • Tanaka pitches well in first start since July
    Masahiro Tanaka tossed 5 1/3 innings of one-run ball Sunday in the Yankees' 5-2 win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: It was Tanaka's first start since July 8 and he looked great, scattering five hits and fanning four batters over his five-plus frames. Tanaka did not issue a walk and went to only one three-ball count. He's been successful so far in his attempt to rehab a partially-torn ulnar collateral ligament and will look to put a promising stamp on his rookie season this week in Boston. Tanaka is 13-4 with a 2.47 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and 139/19 K/BB ratio in 134 2/3 major league innings. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:28 pm
  • Anibal Sanchez could be activated soon
    Anibal Sanchez (pectoral) could be activated from the disabled list on Wednesday or Thursday if Sunday's simulated game goes well.

    Advice: The Tigers are expected to use Sanchez in a bullpen role in the final days of the regular season and in the playoffs. "If you put him down in the pen, he'd probably have the best stuff down there," manager Brad Ausmus said. Sanchez has been out since August 8 with a pectoral strain. Rotoworld.com

  • Masahiro Tanaka activated for Sunday start
    Yankees activated RHP Masahiro Tanaka from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Tanaka will make his return to the Yankees' rotation on Sunday versus the Blue Jays. He'll be limited to 70-75 pitches and might be a tad rusty given his two-and-a-half month layoff, but fantasy owners can probably go ahead and roll the dice on the right-hander. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:14 am
  • Nick Markakis (shoulder) out again Sunday
    Nick Markakis (shoulder) remained out of the lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Markakis hasn't played since being hit on the right shoulder by a pitch Tuesday. He underwent a precautionary X-ray, which didn't reveal anything serious. The injury not a big concern, as the Orioles are just being cautious since they've already wrapped up the American League East. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:00 am
  • Steve Pearce to sit Sunday
    Steve Pearce will sit for at least the next couple of days after receiving a cortisone shot for his sore right wrist on Saturday.

    Advice: That should mean a couple of more starts for Christian Walker, who hit his first big-league homer as the fill-in first baseman tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:21 pm
  • Mark Teixeira wants to keep playing
    Mark Teixeira wants to finish out the season and is looking to get another cortisone injection for his right wrist.

    Advice: Teixeira left Saturday's game due to soreness in the wrist, which has caused him problems for a couple of years now. The Yankees are huge long shots to progress to the playoffs at this point, so Teixeira might be better off just taking the final week to rest. He's rather not, though. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 4:59 pm
  • Mark Teixeira out with wrist soreness
    Mark Teixeira exited Saturday's game because of renewed soreness in his troublesome right wrist.

    Advice: It might be time for Teixeira to shut it down. Brendan Ryan replaced him at first base today. The Yankees could give Brian McCann some starts there during the final week, opening up time for Francisco Cervelli, John Ryan Murphy and Austin Romine behind the plate. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:22 pm
  • Steve Pearce scratched with wrist injury
    Steve Pearce was scratched from the Orioles starting lineup on Saturday due to a sore right wrist.

    Advice: The injury is believed to be minor, the Orioles are simply playing things cautiously. The 31-year-old is having a breakout season, slashing .297/.376/.557 with 20 homers and 48 RBI in his 98 games. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:16 pm
  • Nick Markakis not in O's lineup on Saturday
    Nick Markakis (shoulder) remains out of the Orioles starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Markakis said Saturday that he's feeling better, but will take an additional day off just to be sure. He should be expected to retake his regular spot atop the Orioles lineup for Sunday's series finale. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 12:41 pm
  • Welington Castillo (ribs) not in Cubs lineup
    Welington Castillo (ribs) is not in the Cubs starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Castillo exited Friday's game in the first inning after sustaining a right rib contusion. John Baker will get the call behind the dish and hit eighth against Roberto Hernandez on Saturday. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:34 am
  • Kipnis (hamstring) could return this weekend
    Jason Kipnis (hamstring) could rejoin the Indians lineup this weekend.

    Advice: Kipnis sustained the injury in the eighth inning of Thursday's game and was held out Friday as a precautionary measure. It comes at an unfortunate time for fantasy owners, but consider him day-to-day for now. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 6:30 am
  • Domonic Brown dealing with sprained hand
    Domonic Brown was a late scratch to the Phillies starting lineup on Friday due to a sprained right hand.

    Advice: He should be considered day-to-day for now, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the Phillies take things extremely cautiously with him down the stretch. The 27-year-old is hitting a disappointing .237/.288/.356 on the season with 10 homers and 61 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 5:50 am
  • LaRoche (back) homers in return to lineup
    Adam LaRoche (back) smacked a two-run homer and a drew a walk Friday against the Marlins.

    Advice: LaRoche missed two straight starts this week in order to rest his back, but it's not a major concern. The veteran first baseman is now batting .257/.363/.457 with 25 home runs and 88 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:13 pm
  • Sanchez (pectoral) set for Sunday sim game
    Anibal Sanchez (pectoral) will throw a simulated game on Sunday.

    Advice: Sanchez was cleared for the sim game after getting through another bullpen session Thursday with no issues. The right-hander is not expected back before the end of the regular season, but he could be a valuable relief arm to have in the playoffs. Rotoworld.com

    Welington Castillo has been diagnosed with a left rib contusion.

    Advice: Castillo exited Friday's game in the first inning with the injury. He'll be re-evaluated before it's determined how much time he might miss. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 1:12 pm
  • Markakis (shoulder) out again on Friday
    Nick Markakis (shoulder) remained out of the Orioles' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Markakis has now missed two straight starts after being hit on the right shoulder by a pitch on Tuesday. He hasn't needed to undergo any tests but noted that it hurts to lift his arm above his head. He's hoping to return on Saturday. Steve Pearce is in right field again Friday, with Christian Walker covering first base. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 12:35 pm
  • Welington Castillo exits with back injury
    Welington Castillo left Friday's game against the Dodgers with an apparent back injury.

    Advice: Castillo appeared to tweak his back in the top of the first inning and was pinch-hit for by Rafael Lopez in the bottom of the frame. The Cubs should have more on Castillo's status later Friday. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 12:02 pm
  • Adams returns, scores winning run in the 13th
    Matt Adams, making his return to the Cardinals' lineup, went 2-for-5 with a bases-loaded walk, and scored the game-winning run in Thursday's 13-inning win against the Brewers.

    Advice: Adams reached on a fielder's choice and advanced to second base on Jhonny Peralta's single. Tony Cruz then singled, sending Adams motoring around the third base bag to score the winning run. Adams has been bothered lately by an oblique injury. The slugger is slashing .287/.320/.459 with 15 home runs and 66 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:06 pm
  • Padres could ease Benoit into closer role
    The Padres could ease Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) back into game action before using him in save situations.

    Advice: Benoit is expected to be available out of the bullpen starting on Friday after missing the last few weeks with a shoulder issue. With the veteran reliever likely to pitch in a low-leverage situation or two before returning to the ninth inning, fantasy owners shouldn't drop Kevin Quackenbush just yet. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 3:56 pm
  • LaRoche resting back Thursday
    Adam LaRoche is resting his back Thursday.

    Advice: Most of the Nationals' regulars are back in the lineup Thursday after resting on Wednesday, but LaRoche needs another day. He's expected to return Friday. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 2:25 pm
  • LaRoche out of lineup Thursday
    Adam LaRoche is out of the Nationals' lineup Thursday against the Marlins.

    Advice: Most the Nationals' regulars are back in the lineup Thursday, but LaRoche will sit for a second straight day. Kevin Frandsen is starting at first base. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 1:00 pm
  • Nationals designate Eury Perez for assignment
    Nationals designated OF Eury Perez for assignment.

    Advice: Perez has a decent .310/.354/.411 batting line with 63 stolen bases in 193 career games at Triple-A. The 24-year-old outfielder should draw interest on waivers. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 11:02 am
  • Teixeira (wrist) goes 0-for-3 in return Wed.
    Mark Teixeira (wrist) went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout Wednesday against the Rays.

    Advice: Teixeira sat out Tuesday with discomfort in his surgically-repaired wrist. He told reporters that he's committed to playing through the pain through the end of the season and will then undergo a full examination to determine what sort of offseason treatment is necessary. The 34-year-old first baseman is batting .217/.320/.400 with 21 homers and 58 RBI in 116 games. Rotoworld.com

    Thursday, 1:58 am
  • OF Brown has 2 hits in win agaisnt Padres
    Domonic Brown went 2-for-4 with a run scored in the Phillies' win over the Padres on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's been a long, lonely, treacherous season for the 2013 revelation. But he just finished off a solid series at Petco, going 4-for-11 (.363) with a homer and a steal. Hey, his owners will take whatever they can get at this point. Brown, slashing .234/.286/.353, is very likely playing out the string on his Phillies' career. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported earlier this month that the Phillies will look to trade Brown this winter. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:37 pm
  • Pearce homers twice as Orioles stay hot
    Steve Pearce swatted a pair of home runs and knocked in four runs in Wednesday's victory against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Pearce broke a scoreless tie with a solo shot off of J.A. Happ in the third inning, then made it 4-0 with a three-run shot off of Happ in the fifth. The 31-year-old journeyman now has 20 home runs, 48 RBI, and a .297/.375/.560 slash line. The Orioles, who clinched the AL East on Tuesday, have won 17 of their last 21 contests. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:43 pm
  • Teixeira (wrist) back in Yankees' lineup Wed.
    Mark Teixeira (wrist) is back in the Yankees' starting lineup on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Teixeira missed Tuesday night's game due to wrist discomfort. It's apparently a manageable issue. He's playing first base and batting cleanup versus the Rays. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 1:15 pm
  • Nick Markakis not in Wednesday's lineup
    Nick Markakis is not in the Orioles' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: The Orioles are actually starting most of their regulars a day after capturing the American League East crown, but Markakis is getting a breather. He's earned it, having started 141 of a possible 151 games this season. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 12:45 pm
  • Eaton enjoys four-hit night against Royals
    Adam Eaton had a huge night Tuesday, finishing 4-for-5 with a double, triple and two runs scored in a win over the Royals.

    Advice: Eaton followed up a 3-for-5 game with an even better performance, falling a home run shy of the cycle. Perhaps most remarkably, none of Eaton's four hits managed to drive in a run. The outfielder did score two runs himself, giving him 71 runs scored to go with a .303/.367/.403 line on the year. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:00 pm
  • Pearce's 3-run homer powers O's to clincher
    Steve Pearce's first-inning three-run home run gave the Orioles a lead they would not relinquish as they clinched the AL East with a win over the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

    Advice: Pearce put the O's up 3-1 with the jack in the first off of Drew Hutchison. It was perhaps the most poetic way for the Orioles to clinch, as Pearce has been a key contributor who came out of nowhere, in a season in which the club has gotten little out of Matt Wieters, Manny Machado, and Chris Davis. Pearce now has 18 home runs, 44 RBI, and a .294/.371/.541 slash line. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:24 pm
  • Benoit (shoulder) shooting for Friday return
    Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) could rejoin the Padres' bullpen on Friday.

    Advice: Benoit threw a bullpen session Sunday with no issues and will throw another 'pen session Wednesday. If that goes well, he'll be cleared to return to action. It remains to be seen whether the reliever will immediately regain his closer job, but he certainly needs to be owned in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 4:15 pm
  • Teixeira sits Tuesday due to wrist discomfort
    Mark Teixeira is out of the Yankees' starting lineup on Tuesday due to lingering wrist discomfort.

    Advice: Yankees manager Joe Girardi told reporters that he'll rely on Teixeira to tell the team when he's ready to return. It's a day-to-day situation for now. Teixeira had surgery on that same wrist last season. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 2:06 pm
  • Tanaka (elbow) scheduled to return Sunday
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Tuesday that Masahiro Tanaka (elbow) is tentatively scheduled to return to the rotation Sunday against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Tanaka gave up six hits but went five scoreless innings Monday in an instructional league game at the Yankees' spring training complex in Tampa, Florida. The right-hander will likely be limited to 75 pitches in his first game back in the bigs. He was diagnosed in early July with a partially-torn ligament in his right elbow -- an injury that almost always leads to Tommy John surgery. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 2:00 pm
  • Anibal Sanchez (pec) throws bullpen session
    Anibal Sanchez (pectoral) threw another short bullpen session on Tuesday and felt no pain.

    Advice: Sanchez will toss a longer bullpen session later this week and should then be cleared for simulated action. He's not going to return before the end of the regular season, but the right-hander could be available for the playoffs. Sanchez has been out since August 8 with a pectoral strain. He suffered a setback on August 25. Rotoworld.com

  • Adams (oblique) returns to STL lineup Tues.
    Matt Adams (oblique) is back in the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday against the Brewers.

    Advice: Adams has been dealing with a left oblique injury for much of this month and his offensive numbers have cratered. The Cardinals -- lacking a serviceable backup option at first base -- need to get him right down the stretch. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 1:12 pm
  • Anibal Sanchez (pectoral) throws off mound
    Anibal Sanchez (pectoral) threw 25 pitches off the mound Monday and felt good.

    Advice: Sanchez landed on the disabled list a month ago with a strained pectoral muscle and had a setback in late August, but he's beginning to make some progress. He's slated to throw again tomorrow before the next step is decided. It might be late for him to start again for the Tigers during the regular season, but he could have a role come postseason time.

  • Tanaka could pitch for Yanks this weekend
    Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild said Monday that Masahiro Tanaka (elbow) could rejoin the team's starting rotation this weekend.

    Advice: Tanaka gave up six hits over five scoreless innings Monday in an instructional league game in Tampa, Florida. Assuming he feels good Tuesday, the Yankees could clear him to return. The team mostly wants to get a feeling on his progress going into the offseason, so we wouldn't count on him in fantasy leagues. Tanaka was diagnosed with a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his throwing elbow in July. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 1:48 pm
  • Tanaka (elbow) goes five scoreless in Tampa
    Masahiro Tanaka (elbow) tossed five scoreless innings Monday in an instructional league game at the Yankees' spring training complex in Tampa, Florida.

    Advice: Tanaka gave up six hits to an opposing lineup filled with young Yankees minor leaguers -- most of them teenagers -- but he pitched out of those threats and, most importantly, felt no discomfort in his right elbow. There's been some speculation that Tanaka might rejoin the Yankees' rotation this coming weekend, but nothing is set in stone. He was diagnosed with a partially-torn UCL in early July. Rotoworld.com

  • Pearce has two hits, game-tying RBI in win
    Steve Pearce went 2-for-4 and drove home the tying run with an RBI double in the ninth inning of Sunday's come-from-behind victory over the Yankees.

    Advice: Pearce, who will continue to function as the Orioles primary first baseman for the remainder of the season, is now hitting .290/.365/.532 with 17 homers and 40 RBI over 93 games in what has been a breakthrough season for the 31-year-old. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 14, 8:37 pm
  • Matt Adams nursing oblique issue again
    Matt Adams is not in Sunday's lineup after aggravating his left oblique issue Saturday.

    Advice: We figured something was up when he wasn't in Sunday's lineup against a right-hander. Adams first tweaked the oblique a week and a half ago but returned after missing just two games. It's not clear at this point how long he might be sidelined this time. Daniel Descalso is at first base Sunday, and he could share time there with Xavier Scruggs while Adams is out. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 14, 10:06 am
  • Matt Adams not in Sunday's lineup
    Matt Adams is not in the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He also sat out Friday's game, but that was against a lefty. With the Cards facing a righty Sunday, you have to wonder if Adams' oblique might be an issue again. Daniel Descalso is getting the nod at first base Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 14, 8:42 am
  • Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) nearing a return
    Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Sunday.

    Advice: He's expected to need only one additional 'pen session after that before being cleared to return to action. It's not clear whether Benoit will immediately regain his closer job or be eased back into things, but fantasy owners should scoop him up now if they're in need of saves. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 14, 8:05 am
  • Pearce homers in loss to Yankees
    Steve Pearce went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a double against the Yankees on Saturday.

    Advice: It was his 17th homer of the season and his first since August 28. We've been waiting for Pearce to slow down all year, but he now owns an impressive .287/.364/.529 batting line across 93 games. He has gone from a part-time player to a lineup staple. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 13, 3:12 pm
  • Anibal Sanchez (pec) to throw off mound Mon.
    Anibal Sanchez (pectoral) is expected to begin throwing off a mound on Monday.

    Advice: Sanchez has been playing long-toss for about a week with no complications and is ready to take the next step in his rehab from a pectoral strain. The right-hander probably won't make it back before the end of the regular season, but he could be an option for the Tigers' postseason roster if everything goes smoothly from here.

    Advice: Brown left Wednesday's game with a left shoulder contusion sustained after diving for a ball in the outfield, then sat out Thursday's contest as a precautionary measure. After a breakout 2013 season, the 2014 campaign hasn't been as kind to the 27-year-old outfielder as he's slashing just .233/.285/.349 with nine homers and 59 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • LaRoche has single, four walks vs. Mets
    Adam LaRoche had an RBI single and four walks Friday against the Mets.

    Advice: Well, you don't see that line every day. The fourth and final walk was intentional in the ninth inning. It ended up being the right call by Mets manager Terry Collins, as Jenrry Mejia struck out Ian Desmond swinging to end the ballgame. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Adams getting a day off Friday
    Matt Adams is not in the Cardinals' lineup Friday.

    Advice: The Cards are stacking righties versus southpaw Jorge De La Rosa, as Kolten Wong and Oscar Taveras are also sitting out. Xavier Scruggs is at first base, Mark Ellis is at second and Randal Grichuk is in right field. Rotoworld.com
