  • Scott Feldman (shoulder) to have MRI Wed.
    Scott Feldman (shoulder) will undergo an MRI on Wednesday.

    Advice: Feldman revealed after Tuesday's start that his shoulder discomfort gradually built up during the game before it finally forced him to exit in the third. The Astros are currently rolling with a six-man rotation, but it looks like they might be forced to go back to a traditional five-man set. Rotoworld.com 30 minutes ago
  • Segura collects three RBI as Brewers top Bucs
    Jean Segura went 2-for-4 with three RBI as the Brewers bested the Pirates 7-4 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Segura had an RBI infield single in the first inning before contributing a big two-run single in the eighth. It was the first time Segura has had three RBI in a game since April 27. The shortstop is a better fantasy player than he is in real life, hitting .264/.288/.329 with four homers, 40 RBI, 43 runs scored and 20 stolen bases on the season. Rotoworld.com 54 minutes ago

  • Gomes homers twice but Indians lose to TOR
    Yan Gomes hit a pair of solo home runs in four at-bats, but the Indians dropped Tuesday's game in 10 innings to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Gomes tied the game at 2-2 in the seventh inning with his first solo home run, off of Marco Estrada. In the ninth inning, he re-tied the game at three apiece, swatting his second solo homer off of Roberto Osuna. The catcher now has three homer uns in his last three games, a good sign as he has otherwise not done much offensively. Gomes is batting .225/.265/.389 with 11 home runs and 37 RBI.

  • Scott Feldman exits start with sore shoulder
    Scott Feldman left Tuesday's start against the Mariners with right shoulder discomfort.

    Advice: Feldman might have been pitching hurt all night, as he entered the game on a hot streak and then proceeded to allow three runs on three hits and five walks over 2 2/3 frames. It's unclear at this point whether he'll be sent for an MRI, but it would seem likely. The Astros should have more on his status after the game. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:37 pm
  • Josh Johnson (elbow) nears rehab assignment
    Josh Johnson (elbow) thinks he could begin a rehab assignment this weekend.

    Advice: Johnson got through a 15-pitch simulated game on Tuesday with no issues and believes he's ready for game action. It sounds like the right-hander could join the Padres at some point later this month, although with him the next setback is usually right around the corner. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:59 pm

  • Patrick Corbin picks up win at Coors Field
    Patrick Corbin held the Rockies to two runs over 6 1/3 innings en route to a 6-4 victory Tuesday.

    Advice: Corbin served up a pair of solo homers among the seven hits he allowed, but he didn't walk anyone and struck out four. It's certainly an outing that you have to be pleased with at Coors Field. The left-hander has pitched well since returning from Tommy John surgery, posting a 3.67 ERA and 56/13 K/BB ratio over 56 1/3 innings. He'll try to keep it going next week in two home starts versus the Giants and Dodgers. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:33 pm

    Dodgers recalled RHP Joe Wieland from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Wieland struggled in a spot start with the Dodgers earlier this season and held a 4.59 ERA and 92/25 K/BB ratio over 113 2/3 frames at Oklahoma City. It's possible he'll get a start later this month, but he'll be available in long relief for now. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:43 pm
  • Padres recall Nick Vincent
    Padres recalled RHP Nick Vincent from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Vincent had previously worked 12 2/3 innings with the Padres, allowing five earned runs on 17 hits over that space. He should slot back into middle relief duty now that he's back with the team. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:08 pm

  • Athletics recall Dan Otero
    Athletics recalled RHP Dan Otero from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Otero was just option to Triple-A last week, but he's back with the major league rosters expanding on Tuesday. In 30 appearances earlier this season, he held a tough 7.08 ERA. He'll try to redeem himself this month, assuming the A's actually toss him out there for work. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:00 pm
  • A's transfer Griffin to 60-day DL
    Athletics recalled RHP A.J. Griffin; placed him on the 60-day disabled list.

  • Red Sox purchase Leon's contract
    Red Sox purchased the contract of C Sandy Leon from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: The Red Sox designated Leon for assignment on July 20, but he passed through waivers unclaimed. He hit a paltry .180/.247/.191 in 102 plate appearances with the Sox in earlier cups of coffee. The 26-year-old catcher was hitting better at Triple-A, but not that much better. He doesn't figure to provide much offense at the major league level over the next month. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:53 am
  • Tigers recall catcher Bryan Holaday
    Tigers recalled C Bryan Holaday from Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: Holaday's just coming back from a dislocated left thumb suffered in the middle of August. The 27-year-old backstop will serve as an emergency third catcher for the Tigers. In limited duty with the big club at various points this season, he managed to collect 13 hits in 48 at-bats while driving in 12 runs. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:33 am
  • Blue Jays recall LHP Loup from Triple-A
    Blue Jays recalled LHP Aaron Loup from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Loup's peripherals are very impressive this season, with 40 strikeouts and just six walks over 36 1/3 innings, but he has struggled to the tune of a 5.20 ERA in 48 appearances. He'll hope for better results in his return to the big club. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:16 am
  • Mets activate OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis
    Mets activated OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Nieuwenhuis was placed on the disabled list about a month ago with a pinched nerve in his back, but he's healthy now and will serve as an extra outfielder the rest of the way. The 28-year-old has batted .203/.276/.392 with three homers and 12 RBI over 87 plate appearances with the Mets this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:54 am
  • Pollock homers but D'Backs fall to Rockies

    Advice: Pollock increased the Diamondbacks' lead to 3-0 in the third inning, drilling a two-run homer to left field off of Chad Bettis.

  • Yan Gomes drives in five, Indians rock Halos
    Yan Gomes drove in five runs Saturday in the Indians' 8-3 rout of the Angels.

    Advice: Gomes hit a sacrifice fly that scored Carlos Santana in the bottom of the second inning and he launched a grand slam in Cleveland's five-run eighth inning. Gomes is trying to end his mostly-disappointing 2015 on a high note. He's definitely capable of a strong finish. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:54 pm
  • Corbin limits Cards to one run in six innings
    Patrick Corbin pitched well in a Wednesday no-decision against the Cardinals, allowing one run on three hits over six innings.

    Advice: Corbin struck out seven and walked two on the evening, with a fifth-inning solo homer by Mark Reynolds representing the only run to score during the 26-year-old's time on the mound. Since returning from Tommy John surgery on July 5, he's pitched to a 3.78 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 50 innings, covering 10 starts. So long as he's giving the Diamondbacks innings, he'll continue to hold some value in mixed leagues. A road trip to Coors for a date with the Rockies crops up next on Corbin's schedule. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:27 pm
  • Holaday (thumb) already back from AAA DL
    Bryan Holaday (thumb) has already been activated from the disabled list at Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: Holaday only missed a week with a dislocated left thumb. The 27-year-old could join the Tigers as an emergency third catcher when rosters expand on September 1. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:23 pm
  • Feldman goes eight scoreless, but Astros lose
    Scott Feldman pitched eight scoreless innings, but was left with a no-decision as the Astros fell to the Yankees on Monday.

    Advice: Feldman traded zeroes with opposing starter Nate Eovaldi for all eight innings, scattering six hits with no walks and six strikeouts. He has been quite good over his last six starts, brandishing a 1.80 ERA. On the season, the right-hander has a 3.75 ERA with a 1.27 WHIP and a 59/22 K/BB ratio over 105 2/3 innings. Feldman will face the Twins at the end of a road trip next. Rotoworld.com Aug 24, 7:26 pm
  • Josh Johnson (elbow) to throw simulated game
    Josh Johnson (elbow) will throw a simulated game this week.

    Advice: Johnson has gotten through a couple bullpen sessions without a setback, which qualifies as a major feat for him. He's dealt with nerve issues as he works back from a second Tommy John surgery and there remains no timetable for his return. Rotoworld.com Aug 23, 11:34 am

  • Otero sent down to make room for Doolittle
    Athletics optioned RHP Dan Otero to Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: The A's sent him down to make room for closer Sean Doolittle, who is returning from a shoulder injury. Otero has posted an ugly 7.08 ERA in 30 appearances, though he could get another shot with the A's when rosters expand on September 1. Rotoworld.com Aug 22, 2:05 pm
  • Yan Gomes not in Indians lineup on Saturday
    Yan Gomes is not in the Indians starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: It's nothing more than a routine day of rest for Gomes being a day game after a night game. Roberto Perez will work behind the plate for the Tribe and bat seventh against Luis Severino and the Yankees. Rotoworld.com Aug 22, 7:08 am
  • Pollock fills up box score vs. Reds
    A.J. Pollock had a big night Friday against the Reds, going 4-for-5 with a solo homer, two stolen bases, and three runs scored.

    Advice: Pollock also had a single and a double. It's his second straight four-hit game. On the strength of a big August, his batting average is now up to .321 on the year, the highest it's been since June 13. He has been a fantasy monster all year long. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 9:34 pm
