  • Donaldson draws 3 walks in win over Angels
    Josh Donaldson went 0-for-2 with three walks and a run scored in Monday's 8-4 win against the Angels.

    Advice: He has reached base seven seven times across 11 plate appearances, and scored four runs, over the past 48 hours. He won't come close to matching the raw efficiency of last year's breakout season (.301/.384/.499), but Donaldson totes a solid .254/.341/.457 slash line and will reach the 100-RBI plateau if he can drive in three more by sundown on Sunday. His WAR (currently 7.1) isn't even going to finish one game below 2013's total of 8.0; the A's have a keeper.

  • Pujols' HR not enough for Angels versus A's
    Albert Pujols went yard for the 28th time this season the Angels dropped an 8-4 decision to the A's on Monday.

    Advice: Pujols' eighth-inning three-run blast off Evan Scribner inexplicably made it a game again; the Angels had two runners on down by four in the ninth inning before Oakland finally put them away. It was the veteran's second homer in the last three games. Along with the 28 homers, Pujols has knocked in 104 -- the 12th time he's exceeded 100 RBI in 14 seasons -- and slashed .274/.328/.472. He's on pace for 107 RBI, which would be his highest total since 2010.

  • Morneau goes 2-for-4 with a double in loss
    Justin Morneau finished 2-for-4 with a double in Monday's 1-0 loss versus the Padres.

    Advice: Morneau was returning to the lineup after getting an off-day on Sunday. Morneau has been on fire, coming it this game batting .415 with nine RBI and 11 runs scored in his last 11 games. Consider Morneau a nice daily play during this series. He's 12-for-25 (.480) in eight games at Petco Park this season. He's generally a good daily play: Morneau leads the National League with a .320 average.

  • Aaron Hill suffers dislocated finger
    Aaron Hill suffered a dislocated right pinkie finger on a slide into home plate Monday.

    Advice: Players can sometimes play through a dislocated finger, but this late in the year it could certainly be a season-ending injury. The Diamondbacks are officially listing Hill as day-to-day.

  • Robbie Grossman goes 2-for-3
    Robbie Grossman went 2-for-3 with a sac bunt on Monday to raise his average to .231.

    Advice: Grossman was hitting .220 prior to his current five-game hitting streak. He's been a fixture in the Houston lineup lately with George Springer out, but ideally, he'll be a fourth outfielder next year behind Springer, Dexter Fowler and either Jake Marisnick or perhaps an offseason addition. If the Astros don't add a starter, then Grossman will probably get a chance to battle for Marisnick's spot.
    Today, 8:00 pm
  • Andrew McCutchen homers in win
    Andrew McCutchen homered off the Braves' Aaron Harang for the only run in the Pirates' 1-0 victory on Monday.

    Advice: McCutchen has been a better hitter this year than he was in his MVP season, with the caveat that he has missed 15 games. The sentiment is growing for Clayton Kershaw to win MVP honors, but McCutchen is as good a choice as any to be the top position player on the ballot.
    Today, 7:43 pm
  • Derek Jeter knocks in three
    Derek Jeter had his first three-RBI game of the season Monday in the win over the Orioles.

    Advice: Jeter plated a run with a groundout in the third and then doubled in two in the fifth. With 10 hits in his last six games, he's going out on a higher note than it seemed he would a couple of weeks ago.

  • Jose Bautista goes 3-for-3, homers
    Jose Bautista went 3-for-3 with a homer, a walk and three runs scored as the Blue Jays crushed the Mariners 14-4 on Monday.

    Advice: Bautista is crushing it of late, hitting .319 with six homers, 20 RBI and 17 walks in 69 at-bats this month. He might even have an outside shot of leading the AL in OPS. He's up to .940 now, putting him fourth behind Victor Martinez (.973), Jose Abreu (.971) and Mike Trout (.951).

    W, 14-4 vs ^ Sea
  • Tyler Flowers homers in victory
    Tyler Flowers homered to score the White Sox's two runs in Monday's victory.

    Advice: Flowers is up to 15 homers and 50 RBI, and the late surge will almost certainly see him welcomed back as the White Sox's starting catcher next year, even if he does have the highest strikeout rate of anyone with 400 plate appearances this season.
    Today, 6:50 pm
  • Alex Avila strikes out three times in return
    Alex Avila went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in his return to Detroit's lineup on Monday.

    Advice: It was Avila's first appearance in eight days after he suffered a concussion on Sept. 14. Dating back to Sept. 9, he's struck out multiple times in in six straight starts, and he's up to 146 strikeouts in 119 games this season.
    Today, 6:48 pm
  • Alex Avila returns to Tigers' lineup Monday
    Alex Avila is back in the Tigers' lineup Monday.

    Advice: It will be his first start in over a week due to post-concussion issues. Avila took batting practice and played in a simulated game on Sunday without any issues, clearing the way for his return to action. He's at catcher and hitting seventh against Chris Bassitt and the White Sox.
    Today, 3:21 pm
  • Jason Heyward (thumb) not in Monday's lineup
    Jason Heyward (thumb) remains out of the Braves' lineup Monday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Heyward hasn't played since he was hit in the left thumb by a pitch last Wednesday. It was reported Sunday that he was still unable to grip a bat, so fantasy owners would do well to have a backup plan this week.
    Today, 2:56 pm
  • Mauer not in Monday's lineup
    Joe Mauer is not in Monday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Here's a reminder that this is the last week of the season and fantasy owners need to be prepared to roll with the punches. Chris Parmelee will start at first base Monday.

  • Markakis (shoulder) returns to Orioles lineup
    Nick Markakis (shoulder) is back in the Orioles' starting lineup on Monday against the Yankees.

    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.
    Today, 12:41 pm
  • 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.
    Today, 5:35 am
  • Domonic Brown returned to action on Sunday September 21.
    Today, 1:12 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.
    Today, 1:12 am
  • Alex Avila (concussion) could return Monday
    Alex Avila (concussion) took batting practice and plated in a simulated game on Sunday without any issues.

    Advice: As long as he receives the proper medical clearance on Monday, there's a strong chance that he'll rejoin the Tigers starting lineup for the opener of a three-game set against the White Sox.
    Yesterday, 9:30 pm
  • Donaldson crushes walk-off homer in 10th
    Josh Donaldson came up big for the A's Sunday, hitting a two-run, walk-off homer in the 10th inning to defeat the Phillies 8-6.

    Advice: Donaldson had singled twice and scored twice in the game prior to coming up with a man on in the 10th inning. He proceeded to take Phillies reliever Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez deep to send everyone home happy. Donaldson now has 28 home runs, 97 RBI and 89 runs scored this year. Three more RBI over the final week will represent Donaldson's first ever 100-RBI season.
    Yesterday, 6:58 pm
  • Pujols has RBI single in loss to Rangers
    Albert Pujols went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: Pujols had one of the Angels' four hits in the game, and his run-scoring single in the sixth was the lone run the Halos mustered on the afternoon. It gave him 101 RBI on the year, the 12th time he's reached the 100-RBI plateau in his 14-year career. It has been a return to form all around this year for the 34-year-old.
    Yesterday, 5:26 pm
  • Jason Heyward (thumb) unable to grip bat
    Jason Heyward is unable to grip a bat well enough to hit due to swelling in his left thumb.

    Advice: Heyward hasn't played since Wednesday due to the injury, and it doesn't sound like he's on the verge of returning. Emilio Bonifacio is handling right field on Sunday in Heyward's place.
    Yesterday, 9:10 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.
    Yesterday, 8:00 am
  • Jason Heyward (thumb) sitting out again Sun.
    Jason Heyward (thumb) remained out of the Braves' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He hasn't played since suffering a left thumb injury on Wednesday. Heyward remains day-to-day, but there's been no indication as to when he might return to the lineup. Emilio Bonifacio is handling right field on Sunday.
    Yesterday, 7:25 am
  • Pujols belts 27th homer as Angels top TEX
    Albert Pujols went yard for the 27th time this season the Angels handed the Rangers a loss on Saturday.

    Advice: Pujols finished 3-for-4 on the evening. His fifth-inning shot was part of a five-run fifth inning in which the Angels bolted out to an 8-0 lead. It hasn't always been pretty, but Pujols has managed to put together a full, productive season. Along with the 27 homers, he's knocked in 100 and slashed .275/.329/.470.
    Saturday, 9:09 pm
  • Bautista scores 4 times in Jays victory in NY
    Jose Bautista went 2-for-2 with three walks, a solo home run, and four runs scored as the Blue Jays emerged victorious against the Yankees on Saturday.

    Advice: A huge night for Bautista, who continues to pad his sterling numbers. He hit his 34th home run of the season in the seventh inning off of Chase Whitley, extending the Jays' lead to 5-2 at the time. Bautista has knocked in 101 runs and slashed .284/.405/.527 on the season.
    Saturday, 4:31 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.
    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.
    Saturday, 7:34 am
  • Alex Avila (concussion) remains out of lineup
    Alex Avila (concussion) remains out of the Tigers starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Avila continues to battle concussion-like symptoms and was disoriented when attempting to take swings on Thursday and Friday. Bryan Holaday will take his place behind the dish on Saturday and will continue to share time with rookie James McCann until Avila returns.
    Saturday, 7:25 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.
    Saturday, 5:50 am
  • Jeter notches second straight multi-hit game
    Derek Jeter went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles against the Blue Jays on Friday.

    Advice: Jeter now has back-to-back multi-hit games. He hasn't done that since July 28-29. His final homestand is off to a nice start. The 40-year-old shortstop is batting .252/.301/.305 during his final season in the majors.
    Friday, 7:11 pm
    W, 5-0 vs ^ Bal
  • Avila tries to swing bat, feels 'disoriented'
    Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said that Alex Avila (concussion) felt "disoriented" when he tried taking some swings Thursday and Friday.

    Advice: Avila is sitting out Friday for the 10th time in 17 games this month due to post-concussion issues, and it sounds like, if anything, his symptoms are getting worse. With just over a week left in the season, he might not make it back. James McCann is getting the start behind the dish Friday, and he'll share time with Bryan Holaday while Avila is out.
    Friday, 2:12 pm
  • Welington Castillo has rib contusion
    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.
    Friday, 1:12 pm
  • Alex Avila (concussion) out again Friday
    Alex Avila (concussion) remained out of the Tigers' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Avila has dealt with post-concussion issues for a good chunk of September, starting just nine of a possible 16 games. He'll miss the first game of the huge three-game set against the Royals and it's not clear when he'll return to action. James McCann is behind the dish Friday.
    Friday, 12:56 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.
    Friday, 12:35 pm
  • Jason Heyward (thumb) not in Friday's lineup
    Jason Heyward (thumb) is not in the Braves' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Heyward exited Wednesday's game with a left thumb injury, and although X-rays came back clean, the thumb is still swollen. He's listed as day-to-day and could be available as a defensive replacement Friday. Ryan Doumit is in right field in Heyward's place.
    Friday, 12:23 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.
    Friday, 12:02 pm
  • Bautista's game-tying HR not enough for Jays
    Jose Bautista hit an eighth-inning, game-tying two-run home run, but it wasn't enough as the Blue Jays suffered a walk-off loss to the Yankees on Thursday.

    Advice: Bautista knotted the contest up at two apiece with his two-run shot off of Shawn Kelley. The slugger had been in a short-term rut, so it wasn't surprising that the Jays entered the game having lost four in a row. Bautista now has 33 home runs, 99 RBI, and a .283/.401/.522 slash line.
    Thursday, 6:54 pm
    W, 14-4 vs ^ Sea
  • Jeter ends his 158 at-bat homerless streak
    Derek Jeter homered for the first time in 158 at-bats on Thursday as the Yankees downed the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Jeter took R.A. Dickey out to left field for his fourth homer of the season and first since August 1. The soon-to-retire shortstop ended an 0-for-28 skid on Wednesday, so he's been in the business of tying up some loose ends before the season's out. Jeter owns a .250/.299/.303 with 41 RBI.
    Thursday, 6:52 pm
    W, 5-0 vs ^ Bal
  • 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.
    Wednesday, 10:37 pm
  • Pujols goes 0-for-4 with 2 strikeouts
    Albert Pujols finished 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in Wednesday's 5-0 win against the Mariners.

    Advice: Pujols returned to the lineup yesterday after leaving Monday's game early due to a left hamstring cramp. The veteran went 1-for-3 on Tuesday and cashed in RBI No. 98. He'd plated 15 runners over his last 12 games coming into play today. Pujols retains a solid .272/.326/.465 slash line.
    Wednesday, 10:07 pm
  • X-rays negative on Jason Heyward's left thumb
    X-rays on Jason Heyward's left thumb came back negative.

    Advice: Heyward left in the eighth inning of Wednesday's game after the thumb, which has caused him problems previously this season, acted up. It appears he's day-to-day for now, but his status should be clearer when he shows up to the ballpark Friday.
    Wednesday, 7:25 pm
  • Jeter snaps 0-for-28 skid as the Yankees win
    Derek Jeter snapped an 0-for-28 slump with a sixth-inning single in Wednesday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Things haven't been looking so great as the 40-year-old shortstop winds down his career. Jeter singled and scored against Alex Cobb in the sixth inning, which proved to be the deciding factor in the game. Jeter sports a lackluster .249/.298/.297 slash line.
    Wednesday, 7:14 pm
    W, 5-0 vs ^ Bal
  • Heyward leaves game with undisclosed injury
    Jason Heyward left Wednesday's game against the Nationals with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Heyward didn't show any signs of injury, but in a two-run game that the Braves desperately needed to win he was pinch-hit for in the eighth inning. He's dealt with a recurring thumb injury at points this season. The Braves will hopefully update his situation shortly. Jose Constanza replaced him in right field.
    Wednesday, 6:47 pm
  • Morneau drives in six as Rockies rout Dodgers
    Justin Morneau finished 3-for-4 with a home run and six RBI in Wednesday's 16-2 rout of the Dodgers.

    Advice: Colorado absolutely pounded Dodgers spot starter Carlos Frias, with Morneau kicking off the fun on a three-run blast in the bottom of the first inning. He also hit a two-run single to finish off the scoring in that eight-run opening frame before doubling in the bottom of the fourth and collecting his sixth RBI of the afternoon on a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the fifth. The veteran first baseman has an excellent .320/.363/.497 batting line with 16 home runs and 79 RBI in 127 games this season.
    Wednesday, 3:32 pm
  • Avila (head) out of Tigers' lineup again Wed.
    Alex Avila (head) is absent from the Tigers' starting lineup again on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Avila hasn't played since taking a foul tip off his mask on Sunday. He has a history of concussions, so the Tigers are treating the situation carefully. Bryan Holaday will start at catcher against the Twins.
    Wednesday, 1:49 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.
    Wednesday, 12:45 pm
  • Pujols (hamstring) has an RBI on Tuesday
    Albert Pujols (hamstring) went 1-for-3 with an RBI on Tuesday versus the Mariners.

    Advice: Pujols exited Monday's game early due to a cramp in his left hamstring incurred on a three-run double in the third inning. The veteran admitted after the game that he was suffering from dehydration. He made it through the entirety of this contest without issue.
    Tuesday, 10:29 pm
  • Morneau has two hits, scores twice vs. LAD
    Justin Morneau went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored in the Rockies' win over the Dodgers Tuesday.

    Advice: Morneau drove in a run with a groundout in the first inning, singling and scoring in the sixth. He later doubled and scored in the eighth as well, his first double since late August as he's managed an intercostal injury. Morneau is looking to finish strong after a really nice rebound year for the 33-year-old, who is hitting .316/.361/.486 with 73 RBI.
    Tuesday, 9:12 pm
  • Grossman wears golden sombrero vs. Indians
    Robbie Grossman went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

    Advice: Grossman fell victim to Indians starter Corey Kluber for three of the four strikeouts, and he wasn't alone -- the Klubot fanned 14 Astros batters in the game. Closer Cody Allen did the honors in the ninth. He also worked a walk in the game, a good portrait of Grossman as a hitter -- he has 96 strikeouts in 322 at-bats, but Grossman also owns an on-base percentage 105 points higher than his batting average.
    Tuesday, 8:48 pm
  • Pujols (hamstring) in Angels' lineup Tuesday
    Albert Pujols (hamstring) is in the Angels' starting lineup on Tuesday versus the Mariners.

    Advice: Pujols left Monday's game after feeling a cramp in his left hamstring following a three-run double in the bottom of the third inning. He got treatment on Monday night and again on Tuesday afternoon.
    Tuesday, 2:37 pm
  • Avila (head) out of DET lineup again Tuesday
    Alex Avila (head) is out of the Tigers' starting lineup again on Tuesday night.

    Advice: Avila took a foul tip off his mask on Sunday, so he was held out Monday and Bryan Holaday will get another start behind the plate Tuesday versus the Twins. Avila has a history of concussions, so the Tigers are going to play it safe with him down the stretch.
    Tuesday, 1:42 pm
  • Joe Mauer knocks in four runs
    Joe Mauer drove in four runs with a pair of singles Monday against the Tigers.

    Advice: If only Mauer had hit like his usual self in the first half, he could have racked up some nice RBI numbers behind a surprisingly productive top of the Twins order. At least he has been better since coming off the DL, driving in 22 runs in 34 games. He had just 28 RBI in 76 games before getting hurt.
    Sep 15, 8:44 pm
    L, 6-2 vs x Ari
  • Pujols leaves game with hamstring cramp
    Albert Pujols left Monday's game against the Mariners with a left hamstring cramp.

    Advice: Pujols cleared the bases with a double in the third inning but grabbed his hamstring on the way into second base. The good news is that the Angels are calling it a cramp, so it sounds like a day-to-day situation.
    Sep 15, 8:15 pm
  • Morneau (intercostal) back in Monday's lineup
    Justin Morneau (intercostal) is back in Monday's lineup against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Morneau exited Friday's game with left intercostal soreness, but it's not a major concern. The veteran first baseman is hitting .315 on the year, just two points behind Pittsburgh's Josh Harrison for the National League lead.
    Sep 15, 1:46 pm
  • Alex Avila (head) not in Monday's lineup
    Alex Avila (head) is not in Monday's lineup against the Twins.

    Advice: Avila left Sunday's game with lightheadedness after taking a foul tip off the mark. The Tigers aren't going to take any chances, given his history. Bryan Holaday will start behind the plate.
    Sep 15, 1:28 pm
  • Derek Jeter out of Monday's lineup
    Derek Jeter is not in Monday's lineup against the Rays.

    Advice: Jeter is hitless in his last 24 at-bats -- the second-worst hitless streak of his career -- so perhaps a day off will do him some good. Brendan Ryan will start at shortstop.
    Sep 15, 1:05 pm
    W, 5-0 vs ^ Bal
  • Grossman has two hits, two RBI against Angels
    Robbie Grossman went 2-for-5 with a double and two RBI in a win over the Angels Sunday.

    Advice: Grossman delivered a two-run single in the fifth inning, his third straight game with an RBI. During a six-game hitting streak, Grossman is 10-for-29 (.345) with four RBI and three runs scored. A player with good on-base skills, Grossman could be playing for a bench spot next year.
    Sep 14, 6:01 pm
  • Alex Avila leaves game with lightheadedness
    Alex Avila left Sunday's game against the Indians with lightheadedness.

    Advice: Avila took yet another foul tip off his mask in Sunday's contest. While he didn't display concussion-like symptoms, the Tigers opted to play things cautiously given his history. He is likely to receive an off-day on Monday as well.
    Sep 14, 4:39 pm
  • Morneau (intercostal) expected to return soon
    Justin Morneau (intercostal) is expected to return to the lineup soon.

    Advice: Morneau exited Friday's game with what the Rockies called left intercostal soreness, but trainer Keith Dugger admitted Saturday that the club was "not 100 percent sure it's an intercostal (injury). It's kind of sore behind his left lat. He just has a little soreness. It's not a huge (injury). It's not like an oblique type of soreness. We aren't overly concerned, but we want to make sure he's right before we send him out there." Ben Paulsen started at first base Saturday and should remain there until Morneau is ready.
    Sep 14, 7:35 am
  • Domonic Brown returns to lineup with two hits
    Domonic Brown (shoulder) returned to action on Friday, going 2-for-4 in an extra-inning victory over the Marlins.

    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.
    Sep 13, 2:00 am
  • Morneau removed with left intercostal injury
    Justin Morneau was removed from Friday's game against the Cardinals due to left side intercostal soreness.

    Advice: Morneau is considered day-to-day and should return to the Rockies lineup at some point over the weekend. He is enjoying a fine season at the dish, slashing .315/.359/.485 with 15 homers and 72 RBI in 124 contests.
    Sep 12, 9:41 pm
  • Jeter (elbow) hitless in return to lineup
    Derek Jeter (elbow) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

    Advice: Jeter sat out the first game after being plunked on the elbow on Thursday night, but he managed to return for the nightcap. While that's good news, the 40-year-old is now hitting just .139 (5-for-36) this month and owns a measly .253/.301/.302 batting line in his final season.

  • Derek Jeter (elbow) not in lineup
    Derek Jeter (elbow) is sitting out the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

    Advice: Jeter was plunked on the left elbow by a pitch Thursday. Although X-rays were negative, he was not in the Yankees' clubhouse prior to the afternoon tilt. It's not clear whether he'll be ready to play in the second game of the doubleheader.
