  • Adam Eaton to have shoulder scoped Monday
    Adam Eaton will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder Monday.

    Advice: Eaton has battled soreness in the shoulder during the second half after injuring it on a couple dives in the outfield. It's a minor procedure, as the outfielder should have a relatively normal offseason. The shoulder didn't affect Eaton at the plate, as he sported a robust .335/.418/.486 batting line with eight homers and 13 steals since the All-Star break. 42 minutes ago

  • deGrom could go on short rest in Game 4
    Mets manager Terry Collins on Sunday said the club has discussed the possibility of bringing back Jacob deGrom on short rest to start Game 4 of the NLDS.

    Advice: They would consider it only if they're trailing in the series and likely only if Steven Matz (back) is unable to go. The other option for Game 4 if Matz isn't healthy is Bartolo Colon. If deGrom starts Game 4, Noah Syndergaard would get the ball in Game 5. 50 minutes ago
  • Ian Kinsler sitting out on Sunday
    Ian Kinsler is not in the Tigers' lineup Sunday.

  • Logan Forsythe (foot) still out of lineup
    Logan Forsythe (foot) remained out of the Rays' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Forsythe will end the season having missed the last five games with a bruised right foot as a result of a hit by pitch. It's an unfortunate way to wrap up the campaign, but the second baseman had a breakthrough year with a .281/.359/.444 batting line, 17 homers, 68 RBI and nine steals. Tim Beckham is at second base Sunday. Today, 9:03 am
  • Justin Turner sitting out on Sunday
    Justin Turner is not in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Turner has been banged up of late so the Dodgers will get him some rest in the regular season finale. Alex Guerrero is at third base. Today, 8:57 am

  • Kevin Kiermaier nursing back tightness
    Kevin Kiermaier had to leave Saturday's game after his back tightened up.

    Advice: He'll sit out Sunday's season finale. Kiermaier was brilliant defensively for the Rays this season while hitting .263/.298/.420 with 10 homers and 18 steals. Today, 8:50 am
  • Brian Dozier absent from Sunday's lineup
    Brian Dozier is absent from the Twins' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Minnesota is playing a lot of subs in this one. It will be Eduardo Escobar shifting over to second base and Danny Santana covering shortstop. Today, 8:28 am
  • Joe Mauer sitting out on Sunday
    Joe Mauer is not in the Twins' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's getting a day of rest. Kennys Vargas is covering first base. Today, 8:26 am
  • Kyle Schwarber sitting out on Sunday
    Kyle Schwarber is not in the Cubs' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's just getting a breather. The Cubs have Chris Denorfia and Chris Coghlan at the corner outfield spots. Today, 8:13 am
  • Zach Walters undergoes shoulder surgery
    Zach Walters underwent surgery Friday to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

    Advice: The 26-year-old is expected to be cleared to resume baseball activities in 5-6 months, which means he'll surely get a late start to the 2016 season. Walters had a disappointing 2015 campaign that saw him spend most of his time at Triple-A Columbus, where he hit only .249/.310/.416 with 10 homers over 91 games. Today, 6:57 am

  • Nelson Cruz unlikely to play Sunday
    Nelson Cruz probably won't play Sunday after injuring a quad in extra innings Saturday.

    Advice: That could open the door for Franklin Gutierrez or Jesus Montero to get a start against a right-hander. Yesterday, 11:18 pm
  • Carson Smith records 22nd hold
    Carson Smith got four outs for his 22nd hold before Tom Wilhelmsen blew a save Saturday against the A's.

    Advice: The main reason Smith hasn't spent the last month closing is because the Mariners don't want to have to pay him big bucks in arbitration a couple of years down the line. He's recovered from his midseason malaise by going the last 18 2/3 innings without allowing an earned run (and just one unearned). Yesterday, 11:09 pm
  • Robinson Cano hits three-run homer
    Robinson Cano went 2-for-5 and hit a three-run homer against the A's on Saturday.

    Advice: Cano has hit .332 with 15 homers and 49 RBI in 69 games during the second half of the season, even while playing through a hernia that's going to require surgery in the offseason. If the Comeback Player of the Year award was for bouncing back during a season, Cano would be a shoo-in. Yesterday, 11:07 pm
  • Jacob deGrom will get ball for Game 1 of NLDS
    Manager Terry Collins said Jacob deGrom will be the Mets' starter for Game 1 of the NLDS against the Dodgers.

    Advice: He was the obvious choice with Matt Harvey expected to be held back until Game 3. DeGrom owns the majors' fifth lowest WHIP (0.99) and the sixth lowest ERA (2.60). Last season's NL Rookie of the Year is 0-2 with a 3.66 ERA in three career starts against the Dodgers. Yesterday, 8:02 pm
  • Brian Dozier plates lone run in loss Saturday
    Brian Dozier went 1-for-4 and plated the Twins lone run as they dropped a critical decision to the Royals on Saturday in Minnesota.

    Advice: The loss closes the door on the Twins playoff hopes. At the time, Dozier's run-scoring single in the sixth inning tied the game at 1-1, but the Royals would strike for four the following frame to put the game out of reach. Dozier also swiped his 12th base of the year in the loss. The power-hitting infielder is slashing .236/.307/.444 on the season with 28 long balls and 77 RBI. Yesterday, 1:08 pm
  • Forsythe (foot) remains out of Rays lineup
    Logan Forsythe (foot) remains out of the Rays starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Forsythe has been sidelined since September 29 with a bruised right foot and may end up not returning this season. Tim Beckham will start in his place on Saturday. Yesterday, 11:15 am
  • Justin Turner knocks in two runs
    Justin Turner singled, drove in two runs and walked Friday against the Padres.

    Advice: Turner is working to ensure himself a starting spot in the postseason following his second-half injuries. He rebounded in September following a poor August, so he still seems like the Dodgers' best option at third base. Friday, 9:54 pm

  • Mauer singles twice in loss to Royals
    Joe Mauer went 2-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Mauer was the only Twin with more than one hit in the contest. Both of his knocks went for singles, as was the case with all six of the Twins' hits. The 32-year-old first baseman is slashing .267/.340/.383 with 10 homers and 66 RBI this season. The OBP mark is nice--Mauer's always going to have a patient eye--but he's no longer a premier average hitter and his power remains somewhat suspect. Friday, 8:32 pm
  • Adam Eaton's two-run double sparks victory
    Adam Eaton delivered a two-run double in the third inning on Friday, leading the White Sox to a 2-1 victory over the Tigers.

    Advice: That would prove to be more than enough offense for Chris Sale and the White Sox bullpen on this evening. Eaton finished the night 2-for-3. He has been a terrific table-setter atop the White Sox lineup this season, slashing .286/.361/.431 with 14 homers, 56 RBI and 17 stolen bases. Friday, 8:03 pm

  • Cano to undergo surgery on October 13
    Robinson Cano is set to undergo surgery on October 13 to repair a sports hernia.

    Advice: Cano has been able to play through the injury since mid-July. He'll be completely recovered and ready to go for the start of spring training next season. Friday, 3:57 pm
  • Forsyth (foot) not in Friday's lineup
    Logan Forsythe (foot) is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Forsythe's being held out with a bruised right foot. He suffered the injury on September 29. Nick Franklin will take his spot at second base while hitting eighth. Friday, 1:54 pm
  • Jose Abreu reaches 100 RBI
    Jose Abreu drove in two runs Thursday against the Royals to top 100 for the second straight season.

    Advice: Abreu on Wednesday became the third player to reach 30 homers in each of his first two seasons. Tonight, he became the 12th to drive in 100 runs in each of his first two seasons, joining Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio, Albert Pujols and others. The last was Hideki Matsui in 2003-04. Thursday, 9:17 pm
  • Logan Forsythe (foot) out again Thursday
    Logan Forsythe (foot) is out again Thursday.

    Advice: Forsythe was hit on the right foot by a pitch on Tuesday and still has some discomfort. He might not see much action over the final weekend of the regular season. Thursday, 11:51 am
  • Justin Turner has some swelling in forearm
    Justin Turner has some forearm swelling.

    Advice: That's part of the reason he's absent from the Dodgers' starting lineup Thursday afternoon in San Francisco. Turner got struck on the arm by a pitch earlier this week. He should be completely fine for the final weekend of the regular season and the NLDS. Chase Utley is starting at third base against the Giants. Thursday, 10:36 am

  • Schwarber starting at catcher on Thursday
    Kyle Schwarber is starting at catcher in the Cubs' series finale Thursday against the Reds.

    Advice: It's his first start behind the plate since August 31. Schwarber, who's been playing primarily in left field, will bat seventh Thursday versus Reds lefty John Lamb. Thursday, 6:42 am
  • Cruz rocks homer No. 44 in loss to Astros
    Nelson Cruz went 1-for-5 with a solo home run and three strikeouts in Wednesday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Cruz provided the second "back" of back-to-back home runs with Kyle Seager in the fifth inning. Both men did their damage against Astros starter Scott Kazmir. The veteran slugger has posted a fantastic 2015 season, swatting 44 homers and driving in 92 runs while slashing a stellar .301/.370/.570. Wednesday, 10:57 pm
  • Jose Abreu hits 30th homer
    Jose Abreu hit his 30th homer Wednesday against the Royals.

    Advice: Technically, Abreu is just the third player ever to hit 30 homers in each of his first two big-league seasons, joining Albert Pujols and Ryan Braun. However, Jose Canseco, Mark McGwire and Giancarlo Stanton are among a few who would also join that list if we discounted partial first seasons. Regardless, it's still an impressive feat for the Cuban defector. He's also just one RBI away from 100. Wednesday, 9:21 pm
  • Logan Forsythe (foot) sitting out Wednesday
    Logan Forsythe (foot) is not in the Rays' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Forsythe was hit on the right foot by a pitch Tuesday, forcing him from the game. He's considered day-to-day. Nick Franklin is handling second base. Wednesday, 12:24 pm
  • Cano smacks 20th homer in Mariners' win
    Robinson Cano went 1-for-3 with a sacrifice fly and a two-run home run as the Mariners beat the Astros on Tuesday.

    Advice: Cano hit one of two first-inning sacrifice flies, giving the Mariners an early 2-1 lead. He belted a two-run homer in the sixth to tie the game at 4-4, eventually allowing the Mariners to pull ahead and win. While his numbers are solid, they're not what the Mariners expected when they signed him to a 10-year, $240 million contract before the 2014 season. Cano is hitting .282/.330/.441 with 20 home runs and 76 RBI on the year. Tuesday, 10:36 pm
  • Schwarber has two hits, run scored vs. Reds
    Kyle Schwarber went 2-for-3 with a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Schwarber also walked twice, reaching base in four of his five plate appearances on the evening. One of those walks and his run came in the Cubs' four-run first inning as they got to Reds starter Josh Smith early. Schwarber, who has cooled considerably since lighting the world on fire after his promotion in late July, is hitting .247/.357/.502 with 16 homers, 43 RBI and 50 runs scored overall. Tuesday, 9:58 pm
  • Eaton's two-run homer helps Sox best Royals
    Adam Eaton went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run to help the White Sox trump the Royals 4-2 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Eaton knocked the two-run home run, his 14th of the season, in the fifth inning to provide what would end up being the game-winning RBI. The 14 homers are by far a career high, as he'd hit just six total through his first three seasons in the bigs. It will wind up being a career year on almost every front for Eaton, who is hitting .285/.358/.429 with 53 RBI, 95 runs scored and 17 steals on the season. Tuesday, 8:39 pm
    12:10 pm vs x Det
  • Logan Forsythe exits after HBP on foot
    Logan Forsythe left Tuesday's game against the Marlins after being hit on the right foot by a pitch.

    Advice: Forsythe initially stayed in the game after being hit by a pitch in the bottom of the first inning, but he was replaced by Tim Beckham when the Rays took the field for the top of the third. The second baseman will likely be sent for X-rays. Tuesday, 4:48 pm
  • Nelson Cruz (quad) might rest this weekend
    Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Monday that Nelson Cruz (quad) could be rested for this weekend's series versus the Athletics.

    Advice: Cruz has been playing through a right quad injury and will continue to do so for the series against the Astros since there are playoff implications. However, it sounds like he could rest for at least part of the series versus the A's. Cruz is tied with Chris Davis for the Major League lead in homers with 43. Monday, 3:45 pm
  • Cano (abdomen) could sit out this weekend
    Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Robinson Cano (abdomen) could be rested during this weekend's series against the Athletics.

    Advice: Cano has been playing through an abdominal strain since late July. He'll continue to be in the lineup for the early-week series versus the Astros since there are playoff implications, but the second baseman could rest for at least a portion of the series over the weekend. It's something for fantasy owners to keep in mind this week. Monday, 3:43 pm
  • Kyle Schwarber not in Monday's lineup
    Kyle Schwarber is not in the Cubs' lineup Monday.

    Advice: He's just getting a day off. Chris Coghlan is in left field. Monday, 3:08 pm
  • Dozier adds two-run double as Twins win
    Brian Dozier had a two-run double as part of a 2-for-5 effort as the Twins beat the Tigers 7-1 on Sunday.

    Advice: Dozier drilled a two-run double to left field in the middle of the Twins' six-run outburst in the second inning to chase Randy Wolf from the game. The second baseman has been a valuable fantasy performer this season, batting .242/.314/.459 with 28 home runs, 75 RBI, 101 runs scored, and 11 stolen bases. Sep 27, 1:31 pm
  • deGrom tosses six strong innings, knocks in 2
    Jacob deGrom tossed six innings of one-run ball and also knocked in two runs with the bat as the Mets beat the Reds on Sunday.

    Advice: deGrom scattered five hits, walking none and striking out nine in the effort. The Reds' lone run came in his final inning, when Joey Votto hit an RBI single. deGrom contributed on offense, knocking in two runs with a single in the third innings. The right-hander will head into his final start at home against the Nationals with a 2.60 ERA, a 0.99 WHIP, and a 198/36 K/BB ratio over 187 innings. Sep 27, 1:09 pm
  • Kevin Kiermaier getting a breather Sunday
    Kevin Kiermaier is not in the Rays' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's just a day off. Mikie Mahtook is handling center field. Sep 27, 7:29 am
  • Justin Turner gets the nod Saturday
    Justin Turner returned to the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Rockies.

    Advice: Turner left Thursday's game early and only appeared as a pinch-hitter on Friday. Manager Don Mattingly has been mixing and matching with Turner, Jimmy Rollins and Corey Seager alternating starts on the left side of the infield. Saturday was Rollins' turn to sit out. Sep 26, 2:17 pm

  • Kyle Schwarber not in Cubs lineup Saturday
    Kyle Schwarber is not in the Cubs starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's matchup against the Pirates.

    Advice: Nothing more than a routine day of rest for the rookie slugger. It'll be Austin Jackson getting the start in left field and batting second against opposing southpaw Francisco Liriano. Sep 26, 7:28 am
  • Turner leaves game after five innings
    Justin Turner left Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks after five innings.

    Advice: He went 0-for-2 with a walk and a run scored before exiting. Recently sidelined with left knee soreness, Turner was back in the lineup for the first time since Saturday. His early removal was part of the plan all along. Sep 24, 2:16 pm

  • Justin Turner (knee) back in Dodgers' lineup
    Justin Turner (knee) is starting at third base and batting third Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Turner missed four games with left knee soreness. He is slashing .290/.366/.488 with 15 home runs, 55 RBI, and 49 runs scored in 118 games this season for Los Angeles. Sep 24, 9:59 am
