  • Lisalverto Bonilla earns win over Angels
    Lisalverto Bonilla picked up a win after allowing two runs in five innings Friday against the Angels.

    Advice: Spotted seven runs in the first two innings, Bonilla had an easy path to his second big-league victory, though he did walk four along the way. His long-term role is probably in the bullpen, but he'll get one more start next week against the Astros or A's. Rotoworld.com

  • Peacock takes loss against Mariners
    Brad Peacock was knocked around for seven runs (two earned) in 3 1/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Peacock gave up six hits (including two home runs) and was pulled in the middle of a seven-run fourth inning. Fortunately for those who were streaming him in fantasy leagues on Friday, five of the runs were unearned. The 26-year-old right-hander has a 4.82 ERA and 112/67 K/BB ratio in 127 innings over 23 starts and four relief appearances this season and will wrap up the year with a start against the Mets next week in New York.

  • Walker allows two runs in win over Astros
    Taijuan Walker allowed two runs over 5 2/3 innings Friday in a 10-5 win over the Astros.

    Advice: Filling in for the injured Roenis Elias (elbow), Walker was making his first start for the Mariners since way back on July 23. The young right-hander gave up eight hits and two walks while striking out seven batters. While he wasn't great, he managed to dance around trouble for most the evening. Walker lines up for another start next week against the Blue Jays in Toronto Rotoworld.com

  • Zunino clubs three-run homer vs. Astros
    Mike Zunino was 2-for-5 with a three-run homer against the Astros on Friday.

    Advice: Zunino hit one of four homers for Seattle on Friday, as Dustin Ackley hit two and Kyle Seager also went deep. The 23-year-old backstop is now up to 21 home runs and 57 RBI on the year, though he's done it with a .199/.256/.409 batting line and an ugly 150/16 K/BB ratio. Rotoworld.com

  • Altuve has three-hit night
    Jose Altuve went 3-for-3 with a run scored and a stolen base in Friday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: After going 0-for-6 on Thursday, Altuve bounced back with two singles and a double. He's now up to 216 hits on the year, the most by a second baseman since Rod Carew had 218 in 1974. There's a good chance he'll pass that number within the next couple of days. Altuve currently ranks first in the American League with a .343 batting average, eight points ahead of Detroit's Victor Martinez. Rotoworld.com

  • Plouffe has walk-off single vs. Indians
    Trevor Plouffe delivered a walk-off RBI single in a 5-4 win over the Indians in 10 innings on Friday.

    Advice: Danny Santana and Brian Dozier each singled to begin the 10th inning before Joe Mauer was intentionally walked to lead the bases. Kyle Crockett managed to get rookie Kennys Vargas to strike out swinging, but Terry Francona brought in Josh Tomlin to face Plouffe, who dropped a single into center field to end it. Plouffe hasn't been able to maintain the form he showed in August, but he's had a productive year on the whole, batting .251/.321/.422 with 14 home runs and 79 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Jon Lester beats Phillies for 16th win
    Jon Lester limited the Phillies to one run in seven innings to win Friday night.

    Advice: Regardless of whether you want to blame the Yoenis Cespedes deal for the A's offensive downfall, there's no way to argue that Lester hasn't held up his end of the bargain: he has a 2.20 ERA in 10 starts for Oakland. The team is 7-3 in his outings, and the offense scored a total of four runs in the three losses. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:42 pm
  • Hughes continues K/BB ratio magic
    Phil Hughes allowed four runs over seven innings Friday in a no-decision against the Indians.

    Advice: Hughes gave up 10 hits, his most in a start since back on July 11. He was in line for the loss before Cody Allen blew a save in the ninth inning. Hughes fanned five and walked none, so he now has an incredible 181/16 K/BB ratio over 201 2/3 innings. That puts him on track for the single-season MLB record, beating the 143/13 K/BB ratio that Bret Saberhagen put up in 1994. He'll make one final start next week against the Diamondbacks. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:42 pm
  • Michael Brantley joins 20-20 club
    Michael Brantley went 2-for-5 with a solo home run against the Twins on Friday.

    Advice: Brantley now has 20 home runs on the year to go along with 22 stolen bases. He's the first Indians player with a 20/20 season since Shin-Soo Choo did it in 2009 and 2010. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:40 pm
  • Didi Gregorius has two hits in losing effort
    Didi Gregorius went 2-for-4 with a triple and a run scored in a losing effort against the Rockies on Friday.

    Advice: His triple an subsequent run scored came in the ninth inning with the game already well out reach. Even with the two-hit effort, he's hitting just .209/.282/.351 on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:08 pm
  • Cody Ross has two hits in loss to Rockies
    Cody Ross went 2-for-3 and drove home his 15th run of the season in Friday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: Ross doubled home a run in the sixth inning to pull the Diamondbacks to within 6-2, but that would be as close as they would get. It has been another disappointing and injury-raved season for the veteran outfielder, who is hitting .254/.302/.325 in his first 80 games. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Lackey strong in win over Reds
    John Lackey returned to form Friday by allowing just 7 2/3 innings as part of a 2-1 victory over the Reds.

    Advice: Lackey's last turn in the rotation was skipped after he complained of a dead arm, but he bounced back nicely Friday by holding the Reds to six hits with no walks and five strikeouts. He threw first-pitch strikes to 25 of the 28 batters he faced. The Reds' offense isn't scaring anyone these days, but it was an encouraging performance. He'll look to keep it going next week against the Cubs. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Grichuk homers in win over Reds
    Randal Grichuk connected for a solo homer in Friday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: It was his second major league homer. The 23-year-old rookie is batting just .226/.261/.357 through 39 games with the Cards this season, but he has seen better results at the plate since his return in late August. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:04 pm
  • Chase Anderson hit hard in loss to Rockies
    Chase Anderson was hit hard in Friday's loss to the Rockies, surrendering six runs on nine hits over his five innings.

    Advice: Anderson walked a pair and punched out five on the night. It was one of the roughest outings of the season for the 26-year-old rookie right-hander who sports a 4.01 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 105/40 K/BB ratio over his 114 1/3 innings. He'll take his final turn of the season on Friday against the Cardinals. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Cozart has two hits and RBI in loss to Cards
    Zack Cozart went 2-for-3 with an RBI single in Friday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: It was the only offense of the game for the Reds. Cozart has been one of the least productive regulars in the majors this season, batting just .225/.273/.299 with three home runs and 37 RBI over 140 games. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Taijuan Walker to start Friday versus Astros
    Taijuan Walker will start for the Mariners on Friday night against the Astros.

    Advice: He'll be filling in for Roenis Elias, who is likely done for the season with elbow troubles. Walker owns a 2.96 ERA and 21/15 K/BB ratio in 24 1/3 innings (three starts and three relief appearances) this season for the Mariners and makes for an intriguing fantasy streamer against the punchless 'Stros. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 9:09 am
  • Bonilla to start for Rangers on Friday
    Lisalverto Bonilla will start for the Rangers against the Angels on Friday.

    Advice: Bonilla made his first major league start over the weekend, picking up the win against the Braves. With Scott Baker still dealing with a triceps issue, Bonilla will get another turn, this time against the AL West-champion Angels. The 24-year-old isn't much of a streaming option at this point. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:56 pm
  • John Lackey (arm) scheduled to pitch Friday
    John Lackey (arm) is scheduled to pitch in Friday's series-opener against the Reds.

    Advice: Lackey was skipped from his last turn after complaining of arm fatigue, but he felt better after a side session on Tuesday. The veteran right-hander has an ugly 5.05 ERA in 46 1/3 innings since joining the Cardinals. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 2:54 pm
  • Brad Peacock (back) to rejoin rotation Friday
    Brad Peacock (back) will rejoin the Astros' rotation on Friday against the Mariners.

    Advice: Peacock had Monday's scheduled outing pushed back due to lower back tightness, but he's recovered nicely since then, throwing a successful bullpen session Tuesday. "I felt really good actually," Peacock said. "I let it go and it felt good, so they're putting me in on Friday." Peacock holds a 2.90 ERA with 29 strikeouts over 31 innings across his last six starts. He's worth using in AL-only formats. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:15 am
  • Altuve sets Astros' single-season hit record
    Jose Altuve went 2-for-5 with a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

    Advice: The line was fairly standard for the diminutive second baseman, but it was noteworthy for the fact that Altuve passed Craig Biggio for the Astros' record for hits in a single season. He's got 211 for the season, and the Astros still have a week and a half for Altuve to pad his lead. The 24-year-old is batting a ridiculous .343/.379/.456 for the year. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:42 pm
  • Chase Anderson has one more start left
    Chase Anderson will be shut down for the season after Friday's start in Colorado.

    Advice: He's already thrown 148 1/3 frames between the majors and minors, which is easily a career high. Anderson has been one of the few bright spots for the D'Backs this season, sporting a solid 3.70 ERA and 100/38 K/BB ratio over 109 1/3 innings. The 26-year-old can surely be penciled into a rotation spot for next season. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 4:21 pm
  • John Lackey (arm) on track to start Friday
    John Lackey (arm) threw a bullpen session on Tuesday evening at Busch Stadium.

    Advice: Lackey was skipped from his last turn in the Cardinals' starting rotation due to a case of dead arm, but he is in line to return Friday and is expected to do just that. The veteran right-hander owns a rough 5.05 ERA in 46 1/3 innings since joining St. Louis. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 2:10 pm
  • Jose Altuve goes 3-for-4, triples
    Jose Altuve went 3-for-4 with a triple and two RBI against the Indians on Monday.

    Advice: Altuve has delivered five straight multihit games to push his average back up to .342. He was caught stealing tonight for the eighth time this season. Altuve was 41-for-44 stealing bases in the first half, but he's a much more modest 11-for-16 since. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:37 pm
  • Gregorius scores twice, D'backs defeat Padres
    Didi Gregorius went 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored to lead the Diamondbacks past the Padres 8-6 on Sunday.

    Advice: Gregorius has now scored twice in back-to-back games. He added an RBI single in the eighth inning. The shortstop has struggled at the dish this year, batting a meager .211/.286/.351 in 69 games this season. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 7:28 pm
  • Lester goes six scoreless in shutout of M's
    Jon Lester threw six scoreless innings in the Athletics' 4-0 shutout of the Mariners Sunday.

    Advice: Lester surrendered just four hits, all singles, and walked four in the game. He also struck out seven. The win moved Lester to 15-10 on the year, and he owns a 2.45 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 206/46 K/BB ratio through 30 starts. It's the sixth time Lester has reached the 15-win plateau in his career. The 30-year-old will take the mound again Saturday in an interleague tilt with the Phillies. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 5:33 pm
  • Plouffe homers in second straight game Sunday
    Trevor Plouffe went 2-for-4 with a home run in Sunday's win over the White Sox.

    Advice: The homer was Plouffe's 14th of the season as he homered in back-to-back games. It's been a quietly productive year for the 28-year-old, who has 76 RBI and 67 runs scored to go with his 14 homers. Plouffe is hitting .251/.322/.427 overall. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 2:39 pm
  • Brad Peacock sidelined with back injury
    Brad Peacock will not make his scheduled start on Monday against the Indians due to lower back tightness.

    Advice: He could rejoin the rotation at some point in the final weeks, but there's no timetable for his return. The Astros had been going with six starters, so they'll just return to a regular five-starter setup for now. Collin McHugh will move up to start on Monday and is now in line for a two-start week. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 11:04 am
  • John Lackey going through 'dead arm' phase
    John Lackey admitted Sunday that he's going through a "dead arm" phase.

    Advice: It's not a surprise given that Lackey's velocity and results have been down in recent outings. The Cardinals are skipping his next turn in the rotation in hopes that he'll be able to regain his form next weekend. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 9:56 am
  • Cardinals to skip John Lackey's turn
    The Cardinals have elected to skip John Lackey's next turn in the rotation.

    Advice: Lackey's velocity has been down and he's struggled in his last three outings, so the Cards will give him some extra rest. They'll go with Lance Lynn, Adam Wainwright and Shelby Miller on regular rest against the Brewers on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, respectively. Lackey will take the ball next weekend versus the Reds. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 8:20 am
  • Brantley homers, steals bag in loss to Tigers
    Michael Brantley went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI in Saturday's loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Brantley opened the game's scoring with first-inning two-run shot off Tigers starter Kyle Lobstein and then added a single and a stolen base in the eighth. He's batting .319/.378/.498 with 19 home runs, 93 RBI, and 20 stolen bases in what has been a massive breakout campaign. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:40 pm
  • Hughes allows five runs in loss to White Sox
    Phil Hughes allowed five runs -- three earned -- over seven innings Saturday as the Twins dropped the first half of a doubleheader against the White Sox.

    Advice: Hughes was scheduled to pitch Friday but the game got rained out. He struck out 11 batters and walked just one, but the White Sox got to him for a homer and three doubles. Hughes will carry a 15-10 record, 3.56 ERA, and 1.14 WHIP into his next start at home against the Tigers. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:53 pm
  • Bonilla gives up two runs for first MLB win
    Making his first major league start, Lisalverto Bonilla yielded two runs over six innings in a 3-2 win over the Braves on Saturday.

    Advice: The win was his first in the big leagues. Bonilla was a little shaky, allowing four hits and four walks while throwing 43 out of 78 pitches for strikes, but he managed to avoid any major damage outside of the third inning. He struck out four. The 24-year-old made the start in place of Scott Baker (triceps) and could get another look after today. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 12:57 pm
  • Grichuk scores two runs Friday vs. Rockies
    Randal Grichuk singled, drew a walk, and scored two runs Friday against the Rockies.

    Advice: Grichuk is now batting .414 (12-for-29) since returning to the majors in late August. The 23-year-old is drawing at-bats in right field against left-handed pitching, which makes him relevant in deeper fantasy leagues which allow for daily lineup changes. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 10:01 pm
  • Bonilla to start for Rangers on Saturday
    Lisalverto Bonilla will start for the Rangers on Saturday against the Braves.

    Advice: Scott Baker was scratched from his scheduled start, so the 24-year-old right-hander will make his first career start. He posted a 4.10 ERA and 92/25 K/BB ratio over 74 2/4 innings at Triple-A Round Rock this season, but should be avoided for mixed league purposes. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:45 pm
  • Twins/White Sox postponed due to rain
    Friday's game between the Twins and White Sox has been postponed due to rain.

    Advice: It will be made up as part of a doubleheader Saturday. Scheduled starters Phil Hughes and Jose Quintana will be pushed back a day. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 12:36 pm
  • Altuve goes 2-for-5 with a double and a steal
    Jose Altuve went 2-for-5 with a double and a steal as the Astros edged the Mariners 5-2 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Altuve had gone 0-for-7 in his last two games, snapping a 14-game hitting streak. You could have predicted tonight's mini-slump buster. After all, he is 10-for-24 (.417) over his career against Mariners' starter Hisashi Iwakuma. Altuve is slashing a pristine .336/.373/.447 and his steal tonight gives him 52 total. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:29 pm
  • Lackey ejected in third inning against Reds
    John Lackey was ejected in the third inning of Wednesday's start against the Reds for arguing balls and strikes.

    Advice: Lackey was apparently displeased with home plate umpire Tom Hallion's strike zone, and his thoughts weren't appreciated. Lackey had allowed two runs on four hits over his two innings of work before being tossed. Tyler Lyons replaced him on the mound. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 5:05 pm
  • Altuve hitless in 2 straight since 14-game HS
    Jose Altuve went 0-for-4 with an error in Tuesday's 2-1 win against Seattle

    Advice: Altuve is now 0-for-7 in his last two games; he snapped a 14-game hitting streak with Monday's 0-fer. Regardless, nobody is going to complain about a lack of production from the 24-year-old Venezuelan. Altuve ranks first in the majors with a .336 average, first with 198 hits, and third with 51 steals (first in the AL). Rotoworld.com
