  • Darren O'Day goes on revocable waivers
    MLB.com's Peter Gammons reports that the Orioles have placed Darren O'Day on revocable waivers.

    Advice: Gammons says the waivers will expire on Friday. O'Day almost surely will be claimed, as he's making just $4.5 million this season and is in the midst of the best season of his career. The Orioles are still in the American League Wild Card race and seem unlikely to deal the reliever. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:27 am
  • Francisco Rodriguez on revocable waivers
    MLB.com's Peter Gammons reports that the Brewers have placed Francisco Rodriguez on revocable waivers.

    Advice: Gammons notes that the waivers will expire on Friday, so he must have been placed on them a couple days ago. There will surely be interest in K-Rod, who has a very reasonable contract and is having a great season. Whether the Brewers will be able to work out a deal remains to be seen.

  • Banuelos (elbow) begins rehab assignment
    Manny Banuelos (elbow) tossed two scoreless innings in his first rehab start with Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.

    Advice: Banuelos walked two and didn't recorded any strikeouts, but he yielded just one hit. The left-hander will make at least a couple more rehab start before hopefully rejoining the Braves' rotation at some point in September. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:07 am

  • Tommy Kahnle optioned to Triple-A
    Rockies optioned RHP Tommy Kahnle to Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: It's been quite a fall for Kahnle, who was closing for the Rockies a few weeks ago and now finds himself in the minors. He can't be surprised at the demotion after allowing 10 earned runs and walking nine over his last 4 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:51 am

  • Rafael Betancourt released by Rockies
    Rockies released RHP Rafael Betancourt.

    Advice: Betancourt was designated for assignment earlier this week and is now officially a free agent. With a 6.18 ERA on the season, the 40-year-old's days in the majors could be over. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:48 am

  • Greg Holland (arm) struggles in return
    Greg Holland (arm) yielded two runs on three hits in his return to the mound on Wednesday.

    Advice: Holland had been unavailable for several days due to what Royals manager Ned Yost has called a "cranky" arm. Chances are he's probably fine, but his struggles Wednesday could suggest that maybe he's not totally healthy. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:40 am
  • Martinez tosses quality start vs Diamondbacks
    Carlos Martinez posted a quality start in Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks, yielding three runs on four hits over six innings.

    Advice: While Martinez wasn't getting rocked--all three runs scored in the second inning, on a pair of RBI singles--he had already thrown 103 pitches by the close of the sixth. These kinds of fine-but-unspectacular outings have slowly become the norm for the 23-year-old right-hander, who has now allowed at least three runs in each of his last six starts. He owns a 2.91 ERA and 1.27 WHIP, numbers he'll take into a home start against the Nationals in his next scheduled outing. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:07 pm
  • Hudson exits game with cut finger
    Daniel Hudson exited Thursday's contest against the Cardinals after cutting his finger on a grounder.

    Advice: Hudson came on in the top of the ninth inning, but he cut his finger on a Tommy Phan grounder to lead off the frame and had to be removed from the game for Brad Ziegler. The team should provide an update on his status after the game. For now, the reliever should be considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:55 pm
  • Adam Ottavino throws from flat ground
    Adam Ottavino (elbow) began throwing from flat ground on Thursday.

    Advice: It's the first time the right-hander has been able to throw since undergoing Tommy John surgery in May. He won't be ready to rejoin the Rockies bullpen until midway through the 2016 season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:55 pm

  • Orioles option Jorge Rondon back to Triple-A
    Orioles optioned RHP Jorge Rondon to Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: Rondon continues to shuffle back and forth any time the team needs a fresh arm in the bullpen. He'll assuredly be back as depth once rosters expand in September. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:03 pm

  • Shoemaker allows one hit into eighth vs DET
    Matt Shoemaker was fantastic in his return to the Angels rotation on Wednesday, allowing just one hit over 7 1/3 innings in a 2-0 win over the Tigers.

    Advice: Shoemaker was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on August 16, but he rejoined the rotation on Thursday to pitch his best game of the season. The 28-year-old right-hander struck out five and walked one, with only an Anthony Gose single registering for a hit over his 7 1/3 innings of work. Don't expect these kinds of starts on a regular basis, but Shoemaker can be used as a match-up play in select situations. He takes a 4.48 ERA and 1.24 WHIP into his next start, a road showdown with the A's. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:56 pm
  • Braves release veteran righty Jason Frasor
    Braves released RHP Jason Frasor.

    Advice: Frasor strained his shoulder earlier this month and won't pitch again in 2015. The veteran right-hander looked good in his short stay with the Braves and should have offers on the table this winter if he wants to continue his playing career. Frasor will finish the season with a 1.29 ERA in 28 total innings between Atlanta and Kansas City. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:03 pm

  • Rangers recall Nick Martinez from Triple-A
    Rangers recalled RHP Nick Martinez from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Martinez has a rough 4.09 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, and 73/44 K/BB ratio in 121 innings this year for Texas. He will pitch in relief in his return to the Rangers' active roster. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:46 am
  • Rangers option Spencer Patton to Triple-A
    Rangers optioned RHP Spencer Patton to Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Patton was lit up for five earned runs without recording an out on Wednesday against the Blue Jays. He has a 9.00 ERA in 24 innings this season with the Rangers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:43 am

  • Angels recall Shoemaker for Thursday start
    Angels recalled RHP Matt Shoemaker from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Shoemaker will rejoin the Angels' starting rotation on Thursday afternoon against the Tigers. He's been a disappointment this season in the followup to his breakout 2014, but there might be a matchup or two where he makes sense as a fantasy streamer. Shoemaker, 28, holds a 3.76 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 8.2 K/9 in 258 1/3 career major league frames. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:43 am
  • Rosenthal earns 40th save in win over ARI
    Trevor Rosenthal notched his 40th save of the season in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Diamondbacks, striking out two and walking one in a scoreless ninth inning.

    Advice: Rosenthal came on looking to secure the win for John Lackey. He struck out Paul Goldschmidt and David Peralta to open the ninth inning, but followed those two strikeouts with a walk to Aaron Hill, bringing the tying run to the plate in the form of Jake Lamb. Rosenthal then bared down to induce a fly out from Lamb to end the game. The 25-year-old has been among the best closers in baseball this season, converting 40-of-42 opportunities while holding a 1.54 ERA and 66/20 K/BB ratio over 58 1/3 innings. He's tied with Pirates closer Mark Melancon for the major league saves lead. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:46 pm
  • Rosenthal to miss series for baby's birth
    Trevor Rosenthal will miss the Cardinals' series with the Giants due to the birth of his child.

    Advice: Rosenthal's wife is scheduled to be induced on Friday, and the closer already has a plane ticket bought to be there for the birth. Rosenthal will stay in St. Louis and rejoin the team after they return home from San Francisco. Kevin Siegrist is the best bet to get save opportunities during Rosenthal's absence, so save-needy owners should take a flier on the southpaw while the closer is away. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:32 pm
  • Matt Shoemaker expected to start Thursday
    Matt Shoemaker is expected to start on Thursday versus the Tigers.

    Advice: The Angels need a fifth starter with Nick Tropeano being sent down last week and they'll give Shoemaker another shot. He's been terribly inconsistent for the Halos with a 4.76 ERA over 117 1/3 innings this season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:20 pm
  • Greg Holland (arm) likely available Wed.
    Royals manager Ned Yost said that Greg Holland (arm) will likely be available to pitch Wednesday.

    Advice: Wade Davis got another save on Tuesday in place of Holland, who hasn't been available for a few days due to what Yost has called a "cranky" arm. It's not a major concern, as the Royals are just being careful given their big division lead. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:03 pm
  • Rosenthal allows a run but gets his 39th save
    Trevor Rosenthal allowed a run but finished out the ninth inning for his 39th save in Monday's 5-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Rosenthal allowed a one-out double to A.J. Pollock and a two-out single to David Peralta, but struck out pinch-hitter Yasmany Tomas to end the game. The right-hander is 39-for-41 in save chances with a 1.57 ERA and a 64/19 K/BB ratio in 57 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:54 pm
  • Greg Holland (arm) could be unavailable Mon.
    Greg Holland might be unavailable to pitch Monday due to what Royals manager Ned Yost referred to as a "cranky" pitching arm.

    Advice: The skipper didn't divulge any more details, but it doesn't seem like something to be overly concerned with at the moment. Holland hasn't been his usual dominant self this season, posting a 3.55 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 44/23 K/BB ratio over 38 innings. Wade Davis will handle the ninth inning until Holland is ready. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:24 pm
  • Orioles recall Jorge Rondon from Triple-A
    Orioles recalled RHP Jorge Rondon from Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: Rondon has surrendered 11 runs -- 10 earned -- in 4 1/3 innings this season for the O's. The 27-year-old right-hander will primarily pitch in low-leverage situations. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:20 pm

  • Jorge Rondon to join O's bullpen on Monday
    Jorge Rondon will be recalled from Triple-A Norfolk to join the Orioles bullpen on Monday.

    Advice: Rondon has appeared in just one game with the O's this season, hurling 3 1/3 shutout innings against the Tigers. He'll function in middle relief upon his recall. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:23 pm

  • Rafael Betancourt designated for assignment
    Rockies designated RHP Rafael Betancourt for assignment.

    Advice: Betancourt boasts a 40/12 K/BB ratio over 39 1/3 innings this season but has also posted a 6.18 ERA. It's possible another club will take a look at him, but this could be the end of the line for the 40-year-old. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:06 am

  • Carlos Martinez allows three runs in loss
    Carlos Martinez allowed three earned runs over 6 1/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Padres.

    Advice: And the wheels really came off after he left the game, with the Padres pouring in eight total runs on 12 total hits. Martinez gave up seven of those hits and walked one. He struck out six. Up next for the 23-year-old right-hander is another road start in Arizona. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:08 pm
  • Holland locks down save despite walk, hit
    Greg Holland earned his 28th save of the season in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Red Sox, though it came with a hit allowed and a walk.

    Advice: Holland wasn't even going to pitch in the game, as the Royals entered the ninth holding a 6-2 lead. Kelvin Herrera put a pair of runners on base, though, which forced the team to bring their closer into the fold. Holland allowed an RBI single to Xander Bogaerts and subsequently walked David Ortiz to load the bases before inducing a Travis Shaw fly ball to end the game. Phew. The right-hander is 28-for-32 in save opportunities while pitching to a 3.55 ERA and 44/23 K/BB ratio over 38 innings. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:20 pm
  • Rodriguez earns save despite homer allowed
    Francisco Rodriguez notched his 30th save of the season in Wednesday's 8-7 win over the Marlins, though he did allow a run in the ninth inning.

    Advice: The Brewers handed Rodriguez an 8-6 lead in the ninth, but the veteran closer made things more difficult than necessary, allowing a solo home run to Marcell Ozuna with two outs to draw the road team to within a run. They would not score said run, though, and Rodriguez picked up the save despite his difficulties. He remains perfect in save chances, having gone 30-for-30 while pitching to a 2.06 ERA and 49/9 K/BB ratio in 43 2/3 innings. He's allowed four runs in his last five appearances, but there's no reason to believe that an implosion is around the corner. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:47 pm
