  • Sean Nolin will start for the A's on Sunday
    Sean Nolin will make his first start with the Athletics on Sunday against the Mariners.

    Advice: The 25-year-old southpaw did a nice job at Triple-A Nashville this year, registering a 2.66 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 38/19 K/BB ratio across 47 1/3 innings. He could be worth a look as a streaming option in AL-only and deeper mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:08 pm

  • CC Sabathia (knee) to start on Wednesday
    CC Sabathia (knee) will be activated from the disabled to start on Wednesday versus the Orioles.

    Advice: Sabathia threw a 60-pitch simulated game Friday and came out of it with no issues. The Yankees don't plan to remove anyone from the rotation, so it looks like they'll go with a six-man alignment down the stretch. Sabathia has missed the last couple weeks with an arthritic right knee. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:18 pm
    15-Day DL
     
  • Mets won't commit to Matt Harvey on Tuesday
    Mets manager Terry Collins on Friday wouldn't confirm that Matt Harvey will start on Tuesday.

    Advice: And another chapter is added to the Scott Boras/Sandy Alderson showdown about Harvey's innings. Multiple outlets have reported that the Mets will not shut Harvey down, but perhaps they could either push him back or skip him again. They do plan to skip him once more this month. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:15 pm
  • T.J. House (shoulder) moved to 60-day DL
    Indians transferred LHP T.J. House from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

  • Miguel Gonzalez (shoulder, elbow) goes on DL
    Orioles placed RHP Miguel Gonzalez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 31, with right shoulder and elbow inflammation.

    Advice: The move was made so that Jorge Rondon could be added to the roster, as he was sent down fewer than 10 days ago. Gonzalez hopes to return before the end of the season, but it's not a given. Mike Wright is taking his spot in the rotation. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:45 pm
  • Mets have no plans to shut Matt Harvey down
    Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports that the Mets plan to stick with their innings plan for Matt Harvey that will allow him to pitch through the playoffs.

    Advice: Harvey's agent, Scott Boras, made waves when he told CBS Sports' Jon Heyman that he thinks the club should shut the righty down when he reaches 180 innings (he's at 166 1/3 frames now). But, while they plan to skip Harvey once more and will also use a six-man rotation this month, they have no plans to shut the right-hander down altogether. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:40 pm
  • Jose Valdez recalled from Triple-A

  • Corey Kluber (hamstring) scratched from start
    Corey Kluber has been scratched from Friday's scheduled start due to a right hamstring strain.

    Advice: It's not clear when Kluber was injured, but it could cost him an additional start after Friday. Josh Tomlin will move up a day to start Friday. The Indians are clinging to faint Wild Card hopes, so it's certainly rotten news for them. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:07 am
  • Nick Rumbelow recalled from Triple-A
    Yankees recalled RHP Nick Rumbelow from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: Rumbelow holds a 2.79 ERA over 10 appearances in the majors this season. He'll be used in middle relief. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:23 am
  • Mets, Boras at odds over Harvey's workload
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mets and Matt Harvey's agent, Scott Boras, are disagreeing about what Harvey's innings limit should be.

    Advice: Boras says that doctors advised a 180-inning limit for Harvey before the season, but general manager Sandy Alderson is contending that the pitcher has had a "soft" innings limit all along. Harvey is sitting at 166 1/3 innings currently. The Mets plan to skip one more of the right-hander's starts but have no plans to shut him down. Boras can be upset all he wants if/when Harvey surpasses the 180-inning threshold, but he has no recourse here. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:12 am

    Josh Johnson (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Lake Elsinore on Friday.

    Advice: He'll throw one inning Friday and is set for another inning for Lake Elsinore on Monday. It looks like the Padres will bring Johnson back as a reliever, assuming he makes it back at all. He hasn't pitched in a game since August of 2013 and has had numerous setbacks along the way as he works his way back from a second Tommy John surgery. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:53 am

  • Ricky Nolasco (ankle) could be option in Oct.
    Ricky Nolasco (ankle) could be available for the Twins should they make it to postseason play.

    Advice: Nolasco had surgery in early July to remove bone fragments from his right ankle, but he resumed throwing a couple weeks ago and with have a bullpen session Monday. Even if he's healthy enough come October, the Twins might not end up carrying him on their potential postseason roster. However, the good news is that it looks like he'll have a normal offseason.

  • 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

  • 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
  • Gonzalez expected to be placed on DL
    Miguel Gonzalez (elbow, shoulder) is expected to be placed on the disabled list Friday.

    Advice: Gonzalez felt discomfort in both his shoulder and elbow following his most recent start on Sunday, but tests revealed only inflammation. Still, he's going to get an extended rest. The 31-year-old has struggled to the tune of a 7.46 ERA over his last seven starts, so that's probably a good thing. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:30 pm
  • Harvey to join Mets in MIA on Friday
    Matt Harvey (dehydration) will rejoin the Mets in Miami on Friday.

    Advice: Harvey didn't fly with the team to Miami after suffering from dehydration at the end of his outing Wednesday against the Phillies, but it's not a major concern. He's expected to be good to go for his upcoming start against the Nationals early next week. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:11 pm
  • Matt Harvey (dehydration) to make next start
    Matt Harvey (dehydration) is expected to be fine.

    Advice: Harvey was not on the Mets' team flight to Miami after suffering from dehydration at the end of his outing Wednesday against the Phillies, but he should be good to take his next turn in the rotation in Washington, D.C. Harvey has a stellar 2.60 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 158/34 K/BB ratio in 166 1/3 innings this season for New York. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:21 am
  • Harvey dehydrated after start against Phils
    Matt Harvey was dehydrated and "feeling a little weak" after Wednesday's start against the Phillies.

    Advice: Harvey gave up four runs over 6 1/3 innings in the win, but it wasn't the most dominant he's been and officials told reporters he was feeling weak during the outing. It was unclear whether Harvey was going to travel with the Mets to Miami Wednesday night or whether he would stay behind. It shouldn't be a huge issue going forward, but it's something to monitor, especially with the Mets wanting to give the right-hander a break sometime in September. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:52 pm
  • Harvey gives up four runs but earns 12th win
    Matt Harvey gave up four runs in 6 1/3 innings but picked up the win on Wednesday facing the Phillies.

    Advice: The Mets staked Harvey to a 6-0 lead after three innings, so he had plenty of breathing room. the Phillies rallied for three runs in the fifth inning, and Darnell Sweeney homered with one out in the seventh. Overall, the right-hander gave up nine hits and a walk while striking out nine. It was the first time Harvey gave up more than one run in a start since July 25. He now has a 2.60 ERA with a 1.01 WHIP and a 158/34 K/BB ratio over 166 1/3 innings. Harvey matches up with the Nationals in a road start next. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:14 pm
  • Roark to start in Strasburg's place on Friday
    Tanner Roark will be recalled to start in place of Stephen Strasburg on Friday.

    Advice: Strasburg is dealing with some upper back discomfort, so Roark will get the call against the Braves. Roark threw two innings with High-A Potomac on Monday in preparation for such a move. Roark has made just six starts this year after winning 15 games as a starter last season. The 28-year-old has a 4.54 ERA and 1.30 WHIP through 79 1/3 innings on the year.

  • Gonzalez's MRIs show only inflammation
    MRIs on Miguel Gonzalez's right elbow and shoulder showed only inflammation.

    Advice: Gonzalez has dealt with shoulder soreness for a little while and thinks he might have caused an elbow injury but compensating for it. However, the good news is that he's not dealing with any structural issues.

  • Gonzalez (shoulder, elbow) to undergo MRIs
    Miguel Gonzalez will undergo an MRI on his right shoulder and right elbow on Tuesday.

    Advice: Orioles manager Buck Showalter noted prior to Monday's game that Gonzalez had some soreness in "a couple places," and now we know more specifics. He already had a cortisone shot in his shoulder and will have both body parts examined to see if he's dealing with an structural damage. Gonzalez likely would have already been placed on the disabled list if roster expansion wasn't a day away. He figures to miss at least one start. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:32 pm
  • Miguel Gonzalez dealing with some soreness
    Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Monday that Miguel Gonzalez is nursing some soreness in "a couple places."

    Advice: The skipper wouldn't offer any more details but did say that trainer Richie Bancells was a little concerned and it's possible Gonzalez's next start could be affected. More should be known about the righty's situation later this week. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:48 pm
  • Rangers tag Gonzalez for four runs

    Advice: Gonzalez struck out three and walked two as the Rangers dinged him for two runs in the first, one in the third and one in the sixth. The 31-year-old right-hander has now surrendered three or more runs in seven of his nine starts since the All-Star Break. He'll carry a 4.85 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 106/48 K/BB ratio (over 141 innings) into his next start, a road tilt with the Blue Jays offensive doom machine. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:52 pm

  • CC Sabathia (knee) plays catch
    CC Sabathia (knee) played catch on Saturday.

    Advice: It's the second time he's done so since landing on the disabled list. Sabathia was sporting a large brace on his arthritic right knee when he threw and will have to wear it if he returns this season. There's no room for him in the Yankees' rotation at the moment, although the club talked about using a six-man rotation before Sabathia was injured. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:56 am
    15-Day DL
     
  • 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
  • Lester allows five earned in loss to Dodgers
    Jon Lester gave up five earned runs over six innings Saturday in a loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Lester didn't issue a walk and struck out seven, but the Dodgers tagged him for eight hits and took advantage of his inability to control the running game with three stolen bases. Lester should be able to bounce back in his next start at home against the Diamondbacks. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:42 pm

  • Sampson drilled by Brew Crew
    Keyvius Sampson floundered in a Saturday no-decision against the Brewers, allowing six runs (five earned) on seven hits over 3 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Disappointing outing by Sampson, as the Reds jumped on Brewers starter Matt Garza for seven runs and this could have been an easy win. As is, he didn't even last long enough to qualify for a victory. Through six starts, he carries a 6.43 ERA and 1.79 WHIP over 28 innings. Those numbers are horrific. The 24-year-old right-hander is in desperate need of a smooth outing and will hope for just that against these same Brewers in his next start. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:14 pm
    PPD vs ^ Mil
     
  • 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
  • Harvey fans eight in six scoreless innings
    Matt Harvey turned in a strong performance in Friday's no-decision against the Red Sox, firing six innings of scoreless baseball.

    Advice: Harvey struck out eight, walked one and allowed just two hits during his six innings on the mound. This should have been enough to earn him a victory, but Mets reliever Logan Verrett was knocked for three runs in the seventh and the Red Sox would ultimately win 6-4 in 10 innings. Tough outcome aside, Harvey's now allowed one or fewer runs in each of his last five starts while boasting a 2.48 ERA and 0.99 WHIP for the season. Given the way he's throwing the ball, his upcoming home outing against the Phillies should be a breeze. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:41 pm
  • Chris Rearick designated for assignment
    Rangers designated LHP Chris Rearick for assignment.

  • Gonzalez chased in the fifth, takes 10th loss
    Miguel Gonzalez lasted only 4 1/3 innings, giving up three runs in a loss to the Royals on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gonzalez served up a solo home run to Kendrys Morales in the second inning and the Royals used a pair of walks and a pair of singles to plate two in the third. On the evening, the right-hander gave up six hits and three walks while striking out one in the effort. Gonzalez has had a forgettable second half and now carries a disappointing 4.78 ERA with a 1.37 WHIP and a 103/46 K/BB ratio over 135 2/3 innings. He'll try to salvage his August, wrapping up a road trip in Texas against the Rangers. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:14 pm
  • Nationals option Tanner Roark to Potomac
    Nationals optioned RHP Tanner Roark to High-A Potomac.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the Nats' 25-man roster for Denard Span, who is returning from the disabled list. Roark, who's been pitching primarily in long relief, should be brought back when rosters expand on September 1. He'll work as a starter at Potomac and could replace Joe Ross in the Nationals' rotation when Ross hits his innings limit. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:19 pm

  • CC Sabathia (knee) hopes for quick return
    CC Sabathia (knee) said Tuesday that he hopes to return from the disabled list when he's first eligible.

    Advice: Sabathia has an arthritic right knee, but he received good news when he went for a second opinion Tuesday in New York. Yankees manager Joe Girardi indicated Monday that the southpaw could be done for the season, but he's aiming for a quick return. Sabathia has struggled to the tune of a 5.27 ERA this season.
