  • Solarte goes supernova on Dodgers
    Yangervis Solarte finished with a huge game in Thursday's 10-7 win over the Dodgers, going 4-for-5 with a solo home run, two doubles and three runs scored.

    Advice: Tight effort by Solarte, who played a key role in the Padres' come-from-behind win. He cracked a solo homer in the seventh to draw his team to within 7-6, then finished off the night's scoring with an RBI double in a four-run eighth. The strong performance boosted the 28-year-old infielder's season triple-slash to .267/.321/.428. He's also hit 12 homers and driven in 55. This is the first season in which Solarte's seen more than 252 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:52 pm
  • Corey Seager debuts with two-run single
    Top Dodgers prospect Corey Seager went 2-for-4 with a double, a two-run single and two runs scored in Thursday's 10-7 loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Seager's two-run single in the sixth gave the Dodgers a 6-5 lead, but their bullpen would collapse in the late innings as they stole defeat from the jaws of victory. The 21-year-old shortstop is one of the top position prospects in the game and could make an immediate impact down the stretch, though his true fantasy value probably won't surface until he's installed for an entire season. Prior to Thursday's promotion, he hit to a .292/.343/.486 batting line with 18 homers and 74 RBI while splitting time between Double-A and Triple-A over the course of 124 games.

  • Rea strikes out six in win over Dodgers
    Colin Rea didn't earn a decision in Thursday's contest with the Dodgers, yielding two runs on four hits over five innings.

    Advice: Rea struck out six and walked two on the evening. The Dodgers didn't break through against him until his final inning on the mound, when Joc Pederson and Chase Utley came through with RBI hits. Despite the relative lack of damage in Thursday's game, the 25-year-old right-hander still holds a paltry 5.47 ERA and 1.42 WHIP. He'll face the Rockies at home in his next start. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:34 pm
  • Mat Latos allows four runs in four innings
    Mat Latos wasn't long for Thursday's no-decision against the Padres, lasting just four innings while allowing four runs.

    Advice: The Padres dinged Latos for eight hits over his limited time on the mound, scoring twice in the first inning and two more times in the second to account for all the damage on the right-hander's line. The tough start drove his ERA to 4.92. A short road trip for a date with the Angels is up next on his schedule. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:34 pm
  • Tigers option Knudson to Triple-A
    Tigers optioned RHP Guido Knudson to Triple-A Toledo

    Advice: At the major league level, Knudson's allowed six runs in 4 2/3 innings. He's posted superior numbers between Double-A Erie and Triple-A Toledo, though, boasting a 2.70 ERA and 56/29 K/BB ratio across 56 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:28 pm

  • Corey Dickerson plans to return this season
    Corey Dickerson (ribs) began a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday.

    Advice: Though it has been a lost season for the Rockies, Dickerson is still doing everything in his power to make it back before the end of the regular season. A wide array of injuries has limited Dickerson to just 43 games this season, in which he has slashed .315/.346/.507 with five homers and 18 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:33 pm

  • Kendrys Morales goes 4-for-5 in win
    Kendrys Morales went 4-for-5 with a double and four RBI as the Royals beat the Tigers 15-8 on Thursday.

    Advice: This was a 6-6 game after three innings and 9-7 headed into the bottom of the seventh before the Royals broke it open. Morales had a two-run double as part of the six-run frame. He also scored three runs for just the fifth time in his career. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:23 pm
  • Edinson Volquez gives up six runs
    Edinson Volquez was lifted after allowing six runs in three innings Thursday against the Tigers.

    Advice: Volquez also gave up six runs to the Tigers on Aug. 12, though at least he did it in seven innings that time. His overall numbers still look fine -- he has a 3.53 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP -- but we'd be kind of worried about counting on him in the postseason if we were the Royals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • Matt Boyd gets yanked in second
    Matt Boyd lasted just one-plus innings and gave up six runs Thursday against the Royals.

    Advice: It's the second time in his eight starts that he's failed to record more than three outs, and he hasn't really shown enough in the others to justify a spot in the Tigers' 2016 rotation. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:19 pm
  • Ben Zobrist goes 4-for-5 in win
    Ben Zobrist went 4-for-5 with three runs scored from the leadoff spot for the Royals on Thursday.

    Advice: It's almost like Zobrist might be a better leadoff option than Alcides Escobar, who had a rare day off in this one. He's hitting .339 with five homers and a 14/19 K/BB ratio in 121 at-bats since joining the Royals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:17 pm

  • Nick Castellanos goes 3-for-4, doubles twice
    Nick Castellanos went 3-for-4 with two doubles, three RBI and a walk Thursday against the Royals.

    Advice: Castellanos isn't just homering more during the second half; he's also walking about twice as often as he did prior to the All-Star break and he's collecting more doubles. It's a great sign after he spent the first three months looking like a guy who belonged in Triple-A. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:15 pm
  • Carlos Gonzalez homers twice again
    Carlos Gonzalez had another spectacular game Thursday, going 4-for-5 with two homers and four RBI in an 11-3 drubbing of the Giants.

    Advice: Gonzalez had a career-high seven RBI in a two-homer game against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday. He's the seventh player this year to have consecutive two-homer games, which is particularly impressive since he was also the fourth back on July 25-26. Gonzalez is now tops in the NL with 35 homers, one more than teammate Nolan Arenado. He's hit 31 of those in his last 76 games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:10 pm
  • Chris Rusin goes distance to beat Giants
    Chris Rusin went the distance against the Giants on Thursday, allowing three runs in his second career complete-game victory.

    Advice: Rusin had a shutout against the Padres last month, so this makes him the team's first pitcher to throw two complete games at Coors Field in the same season since Aaron Cook in 2008. He's still just 5-7 with a 4.78 ERA overall, but that's better than anyone would have expected going into the year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Dodgers officially promote Corey Seager
    Dodgers purchased the contract of INF Corey Seager from Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: Arguably, the top position prospect in all of baseball, the 21-year-old will look to add a spark to the Dodgers push toward the postseason over the final month of the regular season. He's slashing .292/.343/.486 with 18 homers and 74 RBI in 124 games between Double-A and Triple-A this year. Seager is starting at shortstop and batting eighth in his major league debut Thursday evening. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:56 pm
  • Nationals recall A.J. Cole from AAA 'Cuse
    Nationals recalled RHP A.J. Cole from Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: Cole has struggled in three appearances this season at the major league level, but the 23-year-old was on a roll at Triple-A Syracuse and should be a nice addition to the Nationals' battered bullpen for the stretch. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:00 pm
  • Odor still feeling discomfort in right hand
    Rougned Odor acknowledged Wednesday that he's still experiencing discomfort in his right hand.

    Advice: Odor cracked the fingernail on his right middle finger last Tuesday and is having trouble on some throws, but he expects to play through the injury. "I feel good at the plate," Odor said. "Sometimes I feel it but not all the time. Sometimes I hit my finger on the other hand and I feel it. But not when I hit the ball." Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:39 am
  • Dodgers calling up top prospect Corey Seager
    Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Dodgers are calling up top infield prospect Corey Seager.

    Advice: Seager was arguably the best young talent left in the minor leagues in what has become The Year of the Rookie at the major league level. The 21-year-old former first-round pick boasts a .306/.368/.523 career batting line on the farm and he's tallied 38 home runs and 86 doubles over the last two seasons between High-A, Double-A, and Triple-A. Seager has been playing shortstop and a little bit of third base this summer, and he could see semi-regular playing time on the Los Angeles infield if he gets off to a good start. He's probably not going to be truly fantasy relevant until 2016, though. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:03 am
  • CarGo knocks in seven, Rockies top D'Backs
    Carlos Gonzalez had a grand slam, a two-run homer and a sac fly to power the Rockies to a 9-4 win over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

    Advice: Gonzalez is the eighth player to drive in seven runs in a game this year. He's now just one away from matching his career high of 34 homers, and with 80 RBI, he has a chance to reach the century mark for the second time in his career. It's too bad for his fantasy value that he doesn't try steals any more, but his owners will make that trade off in return for continued health. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:54 pm
  • Morales clubs 3-run homer as Royals win
    Kendrys Morales went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run as the Royals skated to a 12-1 victory over the Tigers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Morales turned the game into a laugher, as his three-run home run in the fourth inning off of Guido Knudson made it a 9-0 game. He's keeping his foot on the pedal of a fine season, batting .288/.354/.471 with 17 home runs and 94 RBI. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:17 pm
  • Zobrist homers as Royals rout the Tigers
    Ben Zobrist went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run as the Royals routed the Tigers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Zobrist knocked in the first of the Royals' 12 runs, clubbing a solo home run to left field off of Randy Wolf in the first inning. It's his 11th of the season and fifth since joining the Royals in late July. On the season, Zobrist is hitting a solid .285/.373/.470. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:12 pm

  • CarGo not in lineup for first game of DH
    Carlos Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Brandon Barnes will start in right field. Look for CarGo to play in the nightcap. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:25 am
  • Dickerson (ribs) to take batting practice
    Corey Dickerson (ribs) will take batting practice on Monday.

    Advice: It will be his first time doing so since he suffered non-displaced fractures of two ribs back in late July. Dickerson probably half-jokingly said that he could play Tuesday if the Rockies would let him, but they won't. Regardless, it does appear he's making progress so we can't rule out him regaining fantasy relevance in September. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:40 pm

  • Rougned Odor (finger) back in action Monday
    Rougned Odor (finger) is back in the Rangers' lineup Monday.

    Advice: It's Odor's first start since he cracked the fingernail on his right middle finger last Tuesday. The young infielder has hit .336/.369/.581 since returning from the minors. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:30 pm
  • Rougned Odor (finger) held out again Sunday
    Rougned Odor (finger) remained out of the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He was able to go through some pregame drills, suggesting his return is close. Hanser Alberto is filling in at second base again for Odor. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:15 am
  • Mat Latos pitches well in return to rotation
    Mat Latos held the Cubs to two runs over 4 2/3 innings Saturday in a no-decision.

    Advice: Latos was skipped on his last turn through the Dodgers' rotation and pitched pretty well in his return to action Saturday all things considered. The right-hander walked three but struck out five and yielded only four hits. He'll face the Padres on the road next. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:44 pm
  • Rusin hurls quality start against Pirates
    Chris Rusin turned in a quality start in Saturday's loss to the Pirates, allowing three runs on six hits over six innings.

    Advice: All three runs against Rusin scored in the first inning when he coughed up a three-run homer to Aramis Ramirez. He posted goose eggs on the scoreboard over the next five frames. He needed a rebound like this after he was rocked for 11 runs over two-plus innings versus the Mets in his last start. The 28-year-old southpaw will carry a 4.94 ERA and 1.61 WHIP into a home date with the Giants next time he toes the rubber. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:21 pm
  • Rea scuffles in loss to Phillies
    Colin Rea's fourth major league start resulted in a loss to the Phillies on Saturday, as he allowed four runs on six hits over five innings.

    Advice: The Phillies nicked Rea for two runs in the second and an additional two in the fourth. Over 19 2/3 innings, he's pitched to a tough 5.95 ERA and 1.47 WHIP. He has yet to last six innings in a start, but will try for that mark once more when he tangles with the Dodgers in a home outing next time out. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:08 pm
  • Rougned Odor absent from Saturday's lineup
    Rougned Odor (finger) remained out of the Rangers' lineup Saturday against the Orioles.

    Advice: A cracked fingernail has kept him out since Tuesday. Hansen Alberto will grab another start at second base. With the rosters expanding in a few days, there's no need for Texas to place Odor on the disabled list. The 21-year-old has had a productive year, hitting .280 with a solid .479 slugging percentage. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:48 pm
  • Zobrist doubles, singles in win over Rays
    Ben Zobrist went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Friday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Zobrist has been a monster since joining the Royals at the trade deadline, racking up 35 hits (including eight doubles and four home runs) over 102 at-bats. During his current little five-game hitting streak, he's 8-for-18. Simply marvelous. For the season, he maintains a .291/.377/.475 triple-slash to pair with 10 homers, 46 RBI and 59 runs scored.

  • Morales destroys baseball for two-run homer
    Kendrys Morales went 2-for-4 with a long two-run homer and a strikeout in Friday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Morales absolutely teed off on an Erasmo Ramirez offering in the third inning, cracking a two-run homer that traveled an estimated 439 feet out to center. The bomb was his 15th of the season and boosted his RBI total to 89. His career-best for RBI in a year is 108, set in 2009 when he played for the Angels. He should fall somewhere in that range when the 2015 record books are closed out in a month. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:01 pm
  • Volquez pitches into seventh against TB
    Edinson Volquez spun a nice start in Friday's win over the Rays, allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits over 6 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Volquez struck out five and walked two on the evening. He hit trouble spots in the second and third innings, but otherwise kept the Rays from denting the scoreboard. The veteran right-hander has been a consistent starter for the Royals with his 3.32 ERA and 1.26 WHIP. He'll tango with the Tigers in a home AL Central clash next time he takes the ball. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:47 pm
  • CarGo blasts another homer in losing effort
    Carlos Gonzalez blasted his 31st home run of the season on Friday, but it wasn't enough for the Rockies to overcome the Pirates.

    Advice: His solo shot in the sixth inning tied the score at 3-3 but would wind up being the extent of the Rockies offense. After an absolutely miserable start to his season, Gonzalez is hitting .299 (75-for-251) with 27 homers and 59 RBI in his last 69 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:30 pm
  • Boyd serves up three homers in loss to Jays
    Matt Boyd struggled against his former club on Friday, serving up three home runs in a losing effort against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Boyd surrendered a total of five runs on seven hits over his six innings of work while walking three and striking out four. The Jays broke things open against him in the third inning with back-to-back homers from Troy Tulowitzki and Josh Donaldson. Boyd now owns a troublesome 7.12 ERA and 1.64 WHIP on the season. He'll look for better results against the Royals in Kansas City on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:36 pm
  • Odor (finger) out of Rangers' lineup again
    Rougned Odor (finger) remained out of the Rangers' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Odor hasn't played since cracking his right middle fingernail when he was hit by a grounder Tuesday. He did work out again prior to the game and should be back in there soon. Hanser Alberto is holding down second base again in Odor's place. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:23 pm
  • Castellanos drills solo homer in win vs. LAA
    Nick Castellanos went 1-for-4 with a solo home run as the Tigers topped the Angels 5-0 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Castellanos started the scoring in the second inning with a solo homer off of Hector Santiago. It's his ninth home run in 36 second-half games, accounting for 60 percent of his 15 total long balls on the season. Castellanos has driven in 63 runs and compiled an adequate .248/.303/.424 batting line. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:19 pm
  • Cole stays hot in Tuesday's win for Syracuse
    Nationals RHP prospect A.J. Cole allowed three hits and one unearned run over 6 2/3 innings Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: He finished with seven punch-outs, one off his season-high. Cole has won four of his last five starts with a 1.11 ERA in that stretch. The 23-year-old has made three appearances in the big leagues this year and could make a few more when rosters expand. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:03 pm
  • CarGo (knee) back in Rockies' lineup Wed.
    Carlos Gonzalez (knee) is back in the Rockies' starting lineup Wednesday night against the Braves.

    Advice: Gonzalez missed Tuesday's game after making an early exit Monday with a nagging right knee injury. He will start in right field and bat third in his return Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:59 pm
  • Morales homers as Royals eke out win vs. O's
    Kendrys Morales clubbed a solo home run and drew a pair of walks in four plate appearances Tuesday as the Royals eked out a win against the Orioles.

    Advice: Morales started the scoring when he went yard to right-center off of Miguel Gonzalez in the second inning. Though his numbers have tapered off over the last two weeks, the DH has been a steady force in the middle of the Royals' lineup, batting .283/.349/.453 with 14 home runs and 86 RBI. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:11 pm
  • Odor hits 11th home run in loss to Blue Jays
    Rougned Odor went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Odor hit a solo homer in the second inning, his 11th home run of the season. Odor added an RBI double in the fourth. The second baseman is having a strong sophomore campaign, batting .280/.333/.479 with 43 RBI and 38 runs scored in 87 games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:20 pm
  • X-rays on Rougned Odor's finger are negative
    X-rays on Rougned Odor's right middle finger came back negative.

    Advice: Odor's fingers got bloodied up when it was hit by a grounder Tuesday, but it appears he just has a laceration. Consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:36 pm
  • Rougned Odor exits game with hand injury
    Rougned Odor left Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays after being hit on the right hand by a grounder.

    Advice: The tip of Odor's right middle finger was noticeably bloody as he was lifted from the contest. He's being sent for an X-ray, although the Rangers are saying it's just precautionary. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:57 pm
  • Carlos Gonzalez (knee) available off bench
    Rockies manager Walt Weiss said that Carlos Gonzalez (knee) is "definitely available" off the bench Tuesday.

    Advice: He didn't start the game after exiting Monday's contest with a nagging right knee injury. The knee has bothered CarGo off and on for a few weeks but this is the first time he's missed a game because of it. "He's day to day, but he's definitely available," Weiss said. "I don't anticipate it being a major deal." Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:30 pm
