  • Stults doesn't reach the 5th inning in defeat
    Eric Stults allowed four runs on six hits over 4 1/3 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: This outing was the norm earlier in the season, but odds are that it will annoy some fantasy owners perusing box scores online on Thursday morning. Consider: On July 27, the left-hander sat at 3-13 with a 5.22 ERA. Not even Rotoworld could have predicted what happened next: Stults went 4-3 with a 2.81 ERA in his next eight starts entering play today. If you decided to play with fire in the fantasy playoffs, you just got burned. The 34-year-old hosts the Rockies in a decent matchup on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Cron goes 2-for-3 with HR vs. the Mariners
    C.J. Cron went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer in a win over the Mariners on Wednesday.

    Advice: Cron had gone 1-for-10 with zero RBI in his previous five games since going deep for the last time. At this point in his career, Cron is a bit of an all-or-nothing proposition. The .482 slugging percentage is spectacular, but he'll want to get on base at a better than .301 clip in future campaigns. Rotoworld.com

  • 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. Rotoworld.com

  • Wilson gives up 1 hit over 7 shutout frames
    C.J. Wilson fired seven shutout innings and yielded only one hit in Wednesday's 5-0 win over the Mariners.

    Advice: The Angels magic number to win the AL West has dropped to 1. Wilson whiffed seven and walked three in this gem, the lefty's third straight victory, a trick he pulled off for the first time this season. You shouldn't take that to mean he'd pitched particularly well prior to tonight, however, as Wilson allowed six runs (five earned) over 11 1/3 frames in the first two wins but received 23 runs of support. He didn't need much help tonight. Now 13-9 with a 4.42 ERA, Wilson has a pivotal matchup against the A's on deck. Rotoworld.com

  • Paxton strikes out 8 over 6+ frames in loss
    James Paxton worked 6 2/3 innings and allowed three runs in Wednesday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Paxton matched Angels starter C.J. Wilson frame by scoreless frame until the seventh, when everything unraveled, though it looked worse on the box score than it was in reality. The left-hander induced a pop out in foul territory from Albert Pujols and then yielded a pair of singles. A throwing error allowed a run in and left a runner on second, so Paxton intentionally walked Erick Aybar. He got Chris Iannetta looking, but then Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon inserted Danny Farquhar. The reliever promptly gave up a homer. Paxton might forgive McClendon for not allowing him to clean his own mess, as the skipper has had kind words to say about Paxton recently, including calling him "the glue to this rotation." Paxton (6-3, 2.03 ERA) pitches north of the border in Toronto on Monday. Rotoworld.com

  • Polanco slugs his first homer since August 10
    Gregory Polanco went 1-for-5 with his first home run since August 10 as the Pirates easily defeated the Red Sox on Wednesday.

    Advice: Polanco put the Pirates on the board in the first inning with his homer off of Clay Buchholz. Entering the game, Polanco had mustered a .397 OPS since his last home run. The 23-year-old rookie now has seven homers, 33 RBI, and a .240/.314/.351 slash line. Polanco has struggled this season, but big things are still expected of him in 2015. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • Simmons leaves game after tweaking ankle
    Andrelton Simmons left Wednesday's game after tweaking his ankle and Achilles.

    Advice: Simmons said the injury wasn't bad, and he exited the clubhouse without a noticeable limp. He's day-to-day, but it doesn't sound like something that will keep him out of the lineup long, if at all. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 7:30 pm
  • McCarthy on point again as Yanks top Rays
    Brandon McCarthy picked up his eighth win as a Yankee, holding the Rays to two runs over seven innings on Wednesday.

    Advice: McCarthy was on point yet again, relenting just four hits and a walk to the Rays while striking out four. In 13 starts since joining the Yankees, the right-hander has a 2.54 ERA with a 74/13 K/BB ratio in 85 innings. McCarthy will take on the Orioles at home on Monday in his next outing. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 7:12 pm
  • Simmons exits with apparent ankle injury
    Andrelton Simmons left Wednesday's game against the Nationals with an apparent ankle injury.

    Advice: The Braves haven't said a reason for his departure, but Atlanta Journal-Constitution beat writer David O'Brien said it appeared Simmons aggravated a previous ankle injury running from first to second base in the first inning. Phil Gosselin replaced Simmons at shortstop, and the Braves should update his situation shortly. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Howard not in Wednesday's lineup
    Ryan Howard is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Padres.

    Advice: He'll take a seat with left-hander Eric Stults on the hill for Philadelphia. Darin Ruf will start at first base. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 3:30 pm
  • Ryan Raburn to undergo left knee surgery
    Ryan Raburn needs surgery to repair a damaged meniscus in his left knee.

    Advice: He's done for the year. Raburn was a pleasant surprise for the Indians last season, but he'll finish 2014 with a disappointing .200/.250/.297 batting line and four home runs over 74 games. The 33-year-old is under contract for $2.5 million next season. Rotoworld.com

  • Marcus Stroman suspended six games by MLB
    Major League Baseball has suspended Marcus Stroman six games for intentionally throwing at the Orioles' Caleb Joseph during Monday's game.

    Advice: Stroman has maintained his innocence and will appeal the suspension, but it was pretty clear that he did it on purpose. With expanded rosters, he could just drop the appeal after his next scheduled outing Saturday and simply get a couple extra days off between starts. Rotoworld.com

  • Hanley Ramirez (elbow) reports improvement
    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday that Hanley Ramirez (elbow) is feeling better.

    Advice: Ramirez is missing his second straight start Wednesday with a strained right elbow, but the hope is that he'll be ready for the four-game series in Chicago that begins Thursday. The shortstop was able to pinch-hit in Tuesday's contest. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 10:32 am
  • Hanley (elbow) out again on Wednesday
    Hanley Ramirez (elbow) remained out of the Dodgers' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Ramirez was able to pinch-hit Tuesday but will miss a second straight start, suggesting that his elbow is more of an issue in the field. The Dodgers are considering the shortstop day-to-day. Miguel Rojas is filling in Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 9:05 am
  • Gio Gonzalez scratched from Wednesday's start
    Gio Gonzalez has been scratched from Wednesday's start against the Braves.

    Advice: The Nationals clinched the National League East Tuesday, so they'll give the ball to Blake Treinen Wednesday and give Gonzalez some extra rest. The Nats will also undoubtedly have many backups in the lineup, which is good news for Braves starter Alex Wood. Gonzalez will now presumably get the ball on Thursday in Miami instead. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 7:53 am
  • 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. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:29 pm
  • Casilla shuts out the lights against Arizona
    Santiago Casilla earned his 16th save of the season Tuesday by tossing a 1-2-3 ninth inning against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: He induced a Mark Trumbo ground out, whiffed Miguel Montero swinging, and got Cliff Pennington to pop out to center. Casilla had given up runs in three of his last five outings. Even so, he boasts a 1.86 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 41/15 K/BB ratio over 53 1/3 innings. Casilla is 16-for-20 in save conversions. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:33 pm
  • Hanley (elbow) not expected to play Wednesday
    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly indicated after Tuesday's game that Hanley Ramirez (elbow) was unlikely to play Wednesday.

    Advice: It's no surprise given that it's a day game after a night game. Ramirez was able to pinch-hit Tuesday (striking out), suggesting that his elbow is not at issue at the plate but in the field. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:02 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

  • Hanley Ramirez (elbow) scratched from lineup
    Hanley Ramirez was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to a right elbow strain.

    Advice: It's not clear how the ailment popped up or how long he might be sidelined, but the Dodgers should provide more on his status later Tuesday. Justin Turner took Ramirez's spot at shortstop. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:30 pm
  • Ryan Raburn (knee) could be done for season
    Ryan Raburn (knee) might not return this season.

    Advice: Raburn reported improvement with his left knee Tuesday, but he's set to undergo an MRI and the Indians seem unlikely to push him to return at this point. It would be the end of a disappointing season for Raburn, who has hit just .200/.250/.297 with four homers over 74 games this season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:45 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. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:37 pm
  • 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. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:15 pm
  • Marcus Stroman gives up five runs in loss
    Marcus Stroman gave up five runs in six innings Monday in a loss to the Orioles.

    Advice: The runs all came in the first four innings. In the sixth, Stroman threw behind the head of Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph, apparently in retaliation to an earlier incident involving Joseph and Jose Reyes. MLB has refused to suspend pitchers this year for throwing at batters before warnings were issues and Stroman wasn't ejected, so a suspension seems unlikely. Still, one imagines the Orioles won't forget what happened anytime soon. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:48 pm
  • Ryan Raburn (knee) likely to have MRI
    Ryan Raburn is expected to undergo an MRI on his ailing left knee.

    Advice: Raburn left Saturday's game with a hyperextended knee and has yet to experience any improvement. More won't be known about his status until after the exam. "He's still pretty tender, pretty sore," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "We're gonna have [head trainer James Quinlan] talk to [assistant trainer Jeff Desjardins] and see, see if we should get him back to Cleveland. We probably need to get him checked." 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

  • Polanco has two hits, RBI in win over Cubs
    Gregory Polanco went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Cubs.

    Advice: Polanco's RBI infield single with the bases loaded capped the Pirates' scoring in their six-run fifth inning. Heading into the day he'd had just two hits in 14 at-bats since being recalled in early September. Polanco is batting .241/.315/.342 in what's been an up-and-down rookie season. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Raburn leaves game with knee injury
    Ryan Raburn left Saturday's game versus the Tigers with a hyperextended left knee.

    Saturday, 5:32 pm
  • 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

  • Ryan Howard not in Phillies lineup Saturday
    Ryan Howard is not in the Phillies lineup for Saturday's contest against the Marlins.

    Advice: Maikel Franco will get the call in his place and bat second against opposing hurler Brad Hand. Look for Howard to be back in his customary clean-up spot on Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 11:51 am
  • C.J. Wilson strikes out six in win
    C.J. Wilson surrendered three runs -- two earned -- in five innings Friday in a victory over the Astros.

    Advice: Wilson walked three, but two of those were intentional free passes to Chris Carter. He struck out six. Wilson really hasn't turned in a dominant effort in months, but with the way the Angels offense is clicking, he hasn't needed to. He's currently 12-9 despite a 4.61 ERA. Rotoworld.com

  • C.J. Cron returns to lineup
    C.J. Cron returned to action on Friday and went 0-for-3 against the Astros.

    Advice: Cron had been out with a sore wrist. He'll likely head back to the bench versus righty Scott Feldman on Saturday, but he should get another start versus left-hander Dallas Keuchel on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • James Paxton beats A's for sixth win
    James Paxton yielded two runs -- one earned -- in six innings Friday in a win over the A's.

    Advice: Paxton struck out eight in improving to 6-2 on the year. He walked three, but that wasn't much of an issue against a punchless A's lineup. Oakland ended up with six hits on the night, none of which went for extra bases. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:17 pm
  • Andrelton Simmons has two hits in loss
    Andrelton Simmons went 2-for-4 in a losing effort against the Rangers on Friday.

    Advice: On a night where the Braves could get very little done against Derek Holland and company, Simmons was the only member of the team to pick up multiple hits. He is in the midst of a highly disappointing season, slashing a mere .242/.286/.331 with seven homers and 45 RBI in his 133 games. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:02 pm
  • Gonzalez takes loss against Mets
    Gio Gonzalez fell to 8-10 after giving four runs (three earned) over 6 2/3 innings Friday against the Mets.

    Advice: It was his first loss since August 10. Gonzalez allowed six hits and one walk, with the big blow coming on Travis d'Arnaud doubled which plated three runs (one of them on an error). The southpaw fanned seven and walked one in the loss and now has a 3.79 ERA and 145/54 K/BB ratio in 144 2/3 innings over 25 starts. He'll try to get back in the win column next week with a road start against the Braves. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:32 pm
  • Ryan Raburn leaves the yard in loss to Tigers
    Ryan Raburn blasted his fourth home run of the season on Friday as the Indians dropped the opener of their three-game weekend series to the Tigers.

    Advice: Raburn victimized his former mates with a solo shot in the second inning to open the game's scoring. He also singled in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-3 and raising his season slash to a disappointing .200/.246/.297. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:17 pm
  • Brandon McCarthy terrific in no-decision
    Brandon McCarthy didn't allow a run and pitched into the eighth inning but had to settle for a no-decision in Friday's loss to the Orioles.

    Advice: McCarthy yielded just four hits, didn't walk anyone and struck out six before getting pulled following a leadoff double in the eighth. Kevin Gausman matched him pitch-for-pitch, though, and the Orioles eventually won in the 11th. McCarthy now boasts a 2.54 ERA over 12 starts with the Bombers and will have a nice matchup versus the Rays next week. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 2:30 pm
  • Stroman, Buehrle flip-flopped in rotation
    Mark Buehrle will moved up a day to start on Sunday versus the Rays, pushing Marcus Stroman back a day to face the Orioles on Monday.

    Advice: It's bad news for Stroman owners, as they lose a two-start week and also he'll now have a tougher matchup. He will have two starts next week now, though, and you can't blame the Blue Jays for giving the youngster an extra day of rest. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 1:24 pm
  • Pujols suffers first 4-K game but Angels win
    Albert Pujols struck out four times in five trips to the plate in Thursday's win against the Rangers.

    Advice: It took 2,102 games and 9,187 plate appearances, but Pujols finally dons the golden sombrero. He had previously struck out three times in a game 13 times in his 14-year career. Despite Thursday's showing, Pujols has had a productive year at the plate, slashing .276/.329/.473 with 26 home runs and 92 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 8:34 pm
  • C.J. Cron has been nursing sore wrist
    C.J. Cron has been unavailable the last few days due to a sore wrist.

    Advice: He's expected to be available to play this weekend. Cron is hitting .276/.306/.481 with 10 homers and 32 RBI over 67 games for the Angels this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Gregory Polanco out of lineup again Thurs.
    Gregory Polanco is out of the Pirates' starting lineup on Thursday against the Phillies.

    Advice: Polanco is just 1-for-8 (.125) since being recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on September 2. He's barely even a part-time player at this point. Travis Snider will start in right field Thursday for the Bucs. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 12:50 pm
  • Albert Pujols gets first triple since 2010
    Albert Pujols went 3-for-6 with his first triple of the year and a double Wednesday versus the Rangers.

    Advice: It was actually his first triple as an Angel; he hadn't had one since 2010 in his next-to-last year with the Cardinals. Pujols has given the Angels three three-hit games in his last five starts, delivering two homers and eight RBI during the span. He's up to .278 with 26 homers and 92 RBI for the year. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:57 pm
  • Ramirez has 4 hits in victory over San Diego
    Hanley Ramirez went 4-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in a 9-4 victory over the Padres on Monday.

    Advice: He was also caught stealing. Ramirez's RBI single in the first inning kicked off the game's scoring. By the time he touched home plate on Matt Kemp's double in the fifth, the Dodgers led 5-1 en route to a blowout victory. Ramirez came into this game having gone hitless in eight of 12 games since returning from a 15-day stint on the disabled list with a strained oblique. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 8, 10:31 pm
  • Andrelton Simmons goes 0-for-4 in loss
    Andrelton Simmons went 0-for-4 on Monday, leaving him 3-for-27 this month.

    Advice: Simmons hit .289/.298/.489 with three homers through the first month of the season. Since then, he's come in at .228/.280/.294 with four homers in 394 at-bats. Obviously, he still has his outrageous glove working in his favor, but as a fantasy shortstop, he's been quite the disappointment. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 8, 7:13 pm
  • Marcus Stroman hurls first career shutout
    Marcus Stroman pitched a three-hitter for his first career complete game and shutout Monday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Stroman went nine innings a month ago against the Tigers, but that one was decided in extras. Stroman is now 10-5 with a 3.53 ERA, which probably would have been good enough to net him a AL Rookie of the Year award last year. He figures to be shut down a little early unless the Jays can somehow stay in wild card contention, but it's not happening yet. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 8, 7:04 pm
  • Pujols goes 3-for-5 with HR in rout of Tribe
    Albert Pujols finished 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI in Monday's 12-3 rout of the Indians.

    Advice: Pujols was retired in his first two at-bats of the afternoon makeup game, but he singled and scored in the Angels' six-run fifth inning and then did the same in the Angels' two-run seventh inning before launching a three-run bomb in the top of the ninth. Pujols had a huge weekend in Minnesota, collecting his 2,500th career hit and 1,500th career run, and he looks poised to keep the fun going for a while. The veteran slugger boasts has 26 homers and 91 RBI in 141 games this year. Rotoworld.com

  • Ramirez walks twice, scores two runs vs. ARI
    Hanley Ramirez walked twice and scored two runs in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Ramirez also stole his 13th base of the season in the win. Both runs were scored on Adrian Gonzalez home runs, giving him 55 runs scored on the season. The shortstop is hitting .263/.352/.434 overall. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 7, 5:42 pm
  • Paxton takes loss despite allowing one run
    James Paxton held the Rangers to one run over six innings but took a tough-luck loss on Sunday.

    Advice: Paxton held the Rangers off the board until the sixth inning, when Leonys Martin singled and eventually scored on a sacrifice fly. It was the only run Paxton would allow, but it was all the Rangers would need to top the Mariners. The loss dropped Paxton to 5-2 with a 1.87 ERA in nine starts. He'll look for some more run support when he faces the Athletics on Saturday. Rotoworld.com

  • Cron homers, scores twice in win over Twins
    C.J. Cron went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in a win over the Twins on Sunday.

    Advice: Cron hit a two-run shot in the sixth inning, his first homer since July 5. Cron also doubled in the game. He'll remain a part-time player for the rest of the season, barring injury, and should only be owned in deep AL-only leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Sep 7, 3:24 pm
  • Wilson allows three runs in win over Twins
    C.J. Wilson allowed three runs over 6 1/3 innings in Sunday's win over the Twins.

    Advice: Wilson gave up four hits and walked four, but he didn't need to be too fine on a day his offense supplied him with 14 runs of support. He did strike out six in the game. The win moved Wilson to 11-9 with a 4.64 ERA on the year. He'll next toe the rubber Friday against the Astros, a team that has dominated him thus far this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Gio holds Phillies to one earned in victory
    Gio Gonzalez held the Phillies to two runs -- one earned -- over six innings in a win Sunday.

    Advice: Gio gave up just five hits on the day while striking out three. Most importantly, he didn't walk a batter for the first time all season. The win moved him to 8-9 with a 3.78 ERA overall this season. He'll look to pull his record even when the Nationals visit the Mets on Friday. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 7, 2:18 pm
  • Steve Pearce returns to lineup Saturday
    Steve Pearce went 0-for-2 but drew two walks in his return to action Saturday.

    Advice: Pearce had missed over a week with discomfort in his abdomen. He'll return to seeing regular time at first base, with Chris Davis sliding back over to third. Rotoworld.com
