  • Blue Jays' Sanchez suspended three games
    Aaron Sanchez was suspended three games by MLB for throwing at Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar on Sunday.

  • Braves recall Terdoslavich from Triple-A
    Braves recalled INF/OF Joey Terdoslavich from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Terdoslavich will replace the injured Freddie Freeman (oblique) on the active roster. The 26-year-old is batting .147/.171/.265 in 19 games with the Braves this season and will function in a utility role. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:35 am
  • Freddie Freeman (oblique) headed back to DL
    Braves placed 1B Freddie Freeman on the 15-day disabled list with a right oblique strain.

    Advice: A tough break for Freeman, who just recently returned from a right wrist contusion. He suffered the injury during Monday's game and will now require another extended absence. Chris Johnson and Joey Terdoslavich figure to fill in at first base. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:30 am

  • Yanks place Ackley (lumbar strain) on DL
    Yankees placed OF/INF Dustin Ackley on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 3, with a right lumbar strain.

    Advice: Ackley was acquired from the Mariners last week and was a potential threat for playing time at second base, but that will have to wait for now. The Yankees called up right-hander Caleb Cotham to take his place on the active roster. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:04 am

  • Thole could be called up this weekend
    Jeff Blair of Sportsnet.ca writes that the Blue Jays could call up Josh Thole this weekend.

    Advice: Russell Martin is getting banged up while attempting to catch R.A. Dickey, but of course Thole has extensive experience catching the knuckleballer. Every game is critical for the Blue Jays right now, so they could bring him back for their upcoming series against the Yankees. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:51 am

  • Mariners to call up RHP Guaipe
    The Mariners will recall right-hander Mayckol Guaipe from Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday.

    Advice: Guaipe has allowed four runs in 4 1/3 innings over two stints with the Mariners this season. He'll pitch in middle relief. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:41 am
  • Fiers starts Sunday against the Athletics
    Mike Fiers will start Sunday against the Athletics.

    Advice: Fiers made his Astros debut in relief Monday against the Rangers and was knocked around for six runs on seven hits and three walks over five innings. The Astros are calling up Dan Straily to pitch Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:38 am
  • Street closes book on Indians for 26th save
    Huston Street pitched a scoreless ninth inning for his 26th save, putting the finishing touches on Monday's 5-4 victory over the Indians.

    Advice: Street allowed a one-out single to Michael Bourn, who then second base with two outs, but he was able to get Jose Ramirez to fly out to end the game. Back in the ninth inning after healing up from a groin injury, Street is 26-for-29 in save situations with a 2.72 ERA and a 39/12 K/BB ratio in 39 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:17 pm
  • Kluber struggles, gives up 5 runs and 10 hits
    Corey Kluber yielded five runs in 5 2/3 innings, taking his 12th loss of the season on Monday versus the Angels.

    Advice: Kluber served up 10 hits, including a two-run home run to Conor Gillaspie. He also walked none while striking out four. The right-hander, last year's AL Cy Young Award winner, has been inconsistent this year, sitting on a 3.60 ERA with a 1.12 WHIP and a 176/32 K/BB ratio over 162 2/3 innings. Kluber squares off at home against the Twins next. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:15 pm
  • Gomes homers, but Indians drop game to LAA
    Yan Gomes finished 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Gomes clubbed a two-run home run in the first inning to extend the Indians' lead to 3-0. The backstop has swung a better bat since the beginning of July, but still has a measly .227/.254/.369 batting line on the year along with six home runs and 20 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:12 pm
  • Hernandez allows 11 hits but gets 13th win
    Felix Hernandez won his 13th game of the season, giving up four runs in 6 2/3 innings versus the Rockies on Monday.

    Advice: Hernandez was coming off of a beating against the Diamondbacks in which he gave up 12 hits. He gave up 11 hits this time around, but the Rockies could only capitalize for four runs. He also walked one while striking out nine. Though Hernandez's numbers are down from last year's effort -- when he finished second in AL Cy Young Award balloting -- his 3.13 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 140/41 K/BB ratio in 143 2/3 innings are quite good nevertheless. He'll host the Rangers in his next start. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:29 pm
  • Quintana solid in a no-decision vs. the Rays
    Jose Quintana held the Rays to two runs in six innings, but took a no-decision as the White Sox lost late on Monday.

    Advice: Quintana allowed an RBI double in the first inning and a sacrifice fly in the fifth, accounting for the damage. He scattered seven hits and a walk while striking out seven, but the White Sox wouldn't score until he was out of the game. Despite having only six wins, Quintana has a solid 3.50 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 123/29 K/BB ratio over 141 1/3 innings. He will face the tough Royals on the road in his next start. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:10 pm
  • Cubs/Pirates postponed due to rain
    Monday's game between the Cubs and Pirates has been postponed due to rain.

    Advice: No makeup date has been announced. Jon Lester lasted just 1 2/3 innings and Francisco Liriano two frames in a game that was delayed twice by rain before finally getting called. It's unclear when Lester and Liriano will make their next start. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:02 pm
  • Freddie Freeman suffers strained oblique
    Freddie Freeman was pulled from Monday's game versus the Giants with a right oblique strain.

    Advice: Well, at least he didn't aggravate his wrist injury. The Braves are calling Freeman day-to-day for the time being, but, as we all know, oblique injuries usually wind up leading to stints on the disabled list. Chris Johnson would be poised to take over at first base if Freeman misses significant time. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:13 pm

  • Freddie Freeman exits with undisclosed injury
    Freddie Freeman left Monday's game against the Giants with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: He didn't suffer an obvious injury but was replaced at first base by Chris Johnson in the top of the fifth inning. The worry has to be that Freeman re-injured his right wrist, but the Braves should offer more on his status later Monday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:39 pm

  • Yan Gomes not in Sunday's lineup
    Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a simple day off. Roberto Perez will catch in Gomes' place. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:26 am
  • Freeman belts 14th homer in loss to Phillies
    Freddie Freeman belted his 14th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Phillies on Friday.

    Advice: The Phillies jumped out to an early 9-0 lead in this one, and Freeman's two-run shot in the eighth merely made it a 9-3 ballgame. He also singled in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-4 and raising his season slash to .288/.354/.509 to go along with 14 bombs and 45 RBI. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:30 pm

  • Aaron Sanchez records first hold
    Aaron Sanchez struck out two in a perfect eighth inning for his first hold Thursday against the Royals.

    Advice: Barring a late acquisition, it looks like this is the new blueprint for the Jays: LaTroy Hawkins in the seventh, Sanchez in the eighth and Roberto Osuna in the ninth. Sanchez has little fantasy value at the moment, but he'd become interesting in a hurry if Osuna begins to struggle. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:46 pm
  • Braves option Ryan Kelly back to Triple-A
    Braves optioned RHP Ryan Kelly to Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Kelly was with the club for just one day as an emergency arm in the bullpen. He'll continue to provide organizational depth at Triple-A and should once again get the call the next time an extra arm is required. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:36 pm
  • Astros bolster rotation by adding Mike Fiers
    Astros acquired RHP Mike Fiers and OF Carlos Gomez from the Brewers for OF Domingo Santana, OF Brett Phillips, LHP Josh Hader, RHP Adrian Houser and international bonus slot #76.

    Advice: The Astros now boast a very strong top four hurlers in their rotation, as Fiers likely slots in behind Dallas Keuchel, Scott Kazmir and Lance McCullers. The 30-year-old right-hander boasts a 3.89 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 121/43 K/BB ratio through 118 frames on the year and should benefit from a move away from the launching pad that is Miller Park. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:05 pm
  • Astros acquire Mike Fiers to bolster rotation
    According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Astros have acquired Mike Fiers along with Carlos Gomez from the Brewers in exchange for prospects.

    Advice: Fiers will certainly help to bolster the Astros rotation, that now boasts Dallas Keuchel, Scott Kazmir and Lance McCullers at the top. The 30-year-old owns a 3.89 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 121/43 K/BB ratio over 118 innings on the season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:39 pm
  • Yankees acquire Dustin Ackley from Mariners
    Yankees acquired OF/INF Dustin Ackley from the Mariners for OF Ramon Flores and RHP Jose Ramirez.

    Advice: The Mariners selected Ackley with the No. 2 overall pick in 2009, but things never quite came together for him in Seattle, as he produced a disappointing .243/.306/.366 batting line over 584 games. The Yankees will have to hope that the change of scenery will make a difference for him. He could be a possibility to get some looks at second base over Stephen Drew. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:57 pm

  • Braves recall Ryan Kelly from AAA Gwinnett
    Braves recalled RHP Ryan Kelly from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Kelly has been up and down a couple of times this season but has worked only 2 2/3 total innings. The 27-year-old right-hander will pitch in a middle relief role. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:57 pm
  • Report: Yankees to acquire Dustin Ackley
    Jack Curry of YES Network reports that the Yankees are set to acquire Dustin Ackley from the Mariners.

    Advice: Ramon Flores and Jose Ramirez will be going back to Seattle. Ackley, 27, is batting just .215/.270/.366 with six home runs and 19 RBI over 207 plate appearances this season. While he's another option for second base, he has mostly played in the outfield in 2015. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:27 pm

  • Jose Quintana wins second straight start
    Jose Quintana held the Red Sox to two runs in 6 1/3 innings to pick up a win on Wednesday.

    Advice: Quintana got a month's worth of run support tonight, as the White Sox busted out for nine runs to give him his sixth win of the season. It's the first time they've done so well in one of his starts since July 2014. With a shutout of the Indians last time out, Quintana has won back-to-back starts for the first time this season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:02 pm
  • Fiers logs quality start in loss to Giants
    Mike Fiers logged a quality start in Wednesday's loss to the Giants, allowing only two runs on four hits over six-plus frames.

    Advice: The right-hander racked up five strikeouts on the afternoon while walking one. The two teams had been locked in a scoreless tie heading into the seventh inning, where Fiers allowed the first two men to reach before turning the game over to the bullpen, who subsequently allowed the two runners to score. A popular name in trade rumblings, Fiers will take on the Padres at home on Monday if he remains a Brewer through the deadline. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:32 pm
  • Felix Hernandez hit hard in loss to D'Backs
    Felix Hernandez was hit hard in a losing effort against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, allowing seven runs on 12 hits over 6 2/3 innings.

    Advice: On the plus side, he did manage to strike out seven while issuing just one walk in the rough outing. His primary nemesis in this one was Welington Castillo who blasted a pair of home runs. Even with this debacle, Hernandez will carry a 3.02 ERA and 131/40 K/BB ratio into a tough matchup against the Rockies at Coors Field on Monday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:45 pm
  • Lester strikes out 14 in win over the Rockies
    Jon Lester limited the Rockies to two runs over eight innings Wednesday in the Cubs' 3-2 victory.

    Advice: Lester struck out 14 and walked just one in the dominant outing on a hot, sunny day at Wrigley Field. The left-hander has been on a roll for the last couple of months, now boasting a 3.26 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 136/32 K/BB ratio in 132 2/3 total innings. He will get the Pirates on the road next time out. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:07 pm
  • Corey Kluber goes the distance versus Royals
    Corey Kluber went the distance against the Royals Wednesday, recording six strikeouts while allowing just one run in a 12-1 victory.

    Advice: He missed out on a shutout when Alex Rios had an RBI groundout in the ninth inning, but that's hardly anything to quibble over. Kluber permitted just five base knocks on the day and issued just one free pass as the Tribe rolled to a win. The reigning American League Cy Young winner has a superb 172/32 K/BB ratio over 157 innings this season to go along with a 3.44 ERA. He'll get the Angels on the road next. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:11 pm
  • Freeman homers early, Braves defeated by O's
    Freddie Freeman went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run on Tuesday as the Braves lost 7-3 to the Orioles.

    Advice: Freeman, playing in his fourth game since being activated from the disabled list, staked the Braves to a 2-0 lead when he drilled a two-run home run off of Ubaldo Jimenez in the first inning. He's now 2-for-14 since being activated, but still owns a terrific .291/.359/.511 batting line along with 13 home runs and 43 RBI. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:17 pm

  • Yan Gomes not in Indians' lineup Tuesday
    Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: It's just a day off for the 28-year-old catcher, who has a disappointing .223/.249/.346 slash line on the season. He's a pretty good bet to produce better numbers down the stretch. Roberto Perez is starting behind the plate Tuesday night against the Royals. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:01 pm
  • Manny Parra (elbow) still not throwing
    Manny Parra (elbow) has yet to resume throwing.

    Advice: Parra has been on the disabled list for a week with a strained left elbow and it's unclear how long he'll be sidelined. "He still has a little bit of soreness in the back of his elbow, which is a little bit more like a bone bruise. It's providing some discomfort," Reds manager Bryan Price said.

  • Jays 'still talking' Fiers trade with Brewers
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Blue Jays are "still talking" a Mike Fiers trade with the Brewers.

    Advice: Fiers has pitched really well of late and is under team control through 2018, so the Brewers figure to ask for quite a bit in return for him. Rosenthal notes that he's not the only arm the Blue Jays are looking at, though, as they're also interested in Jeff Samardzija and Johnny Cueto and would be after David Price if he becomes available. Rotoworld.com Jul 26, 7:47 am
  • Braves option Terdoslavich back to Triple-A
    Braves optioned INF/OF Joey Terdoslavich to Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: The 26-year-old utilityman has appeared in 19 games for the Braves this season, slashing .147/.171/.265 in 34 at-bats. He'll continue to provide organizational depth at Triple-A. Rotoworld.com Jul 25, 12:15 pm
  • Braves activate Freddie Freeman from DL
    Braves activated 1B Freddie Freeman from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Freeman has been sidelined since June 18 due to a bone bruise in his wrist, but the club apparently feels that he's ready to return without a lengthy minor league rehab assignment. Before hitting the DL, the 25-year-old slugger was hitting .299/.367/.520 with 12 homers and 41 RBI in 66 games. Rotoworld.com Jul 25, 12:14 pm

  • Blue Jays activate Aaron Sanchez from DL
    Blue Jays activated RHP Aaron Sanchez from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Sanchez will work out of the bullpen for the Blue Jays this time around and should find his way into high-leverage situations fairly quickly. For those speculating on saves in deep leagues, he could be worth a look. Rotoworld.com Jul 25, 10:24 am
  • Felix Hernandez earns 12th victory
    Felix Hernandez yielded two runs -- one earned -- over seven innings in beating the Blue Jays on Friday.

    Advice: Hernandez struck out seven and walked one in earning his 12th win. He's allowed a total of four runs in his last five starts, a stretch that has lowered his ERA from 3.24 to 2.59. Let's not count him out of the Cy Young mix just yet. Rotoworld.com Jul 24, 10:35 pm
