  • Garza pushed back to Friday vs. Reds
    Matt Garza will start Friday against the Reds.

    Advice: The veteran right-hander was previously scheduled to pitch against the Pirates, but the Brewers pushed him back after Zach Davies' arrival. Garza has really struggled of late and owns a disappointing 5.56 ERA on the year. Rotoworld.com 27 minutes ago
  • Jungmann starting Thursday vs. Pirates
    Taylor Jungmann will start Thursday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Jungmann was previously scheduled to pitch Wednesday, but Zach Davies is getting the call up to start instead. The 25-year-old tossed six scoreless innings last time out against the Reds and owns a 2.48 ERA through his first 15 starts in the majors. Rotoworld.com 28 minutes ago
  • Orioles recall Oliver Drake from Triple-A
    Orioles recalled RHP Oliver Drake from Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: In 7 2/3 relief innings with the Orioles, Drake had allowed three runs. He was pitching to a minuscule 0.82 ERA (with a 66/16 K/BB ratio) across 44 Triple-A innings prior to joining the Orioles with the September 1 expansion of rosters. His numbers are strong enough that it's not inconceivable that the team might try him in some bigger relief spots depending on the situation. Rotoworld.com 53 minutes ago
  • Orioles purchase Johnson's contract
    Orioles purchased the contract of RHP Steve Johnson from Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: Johnson hasn't pitched in a major league game since back in 2013, but he's been killing it at Triple-A this season. With Norfolk, he's pitched to a 2.30 ERA, 1.079 WHIP and 67/16 K/BB ratio covering 54 2/3 innings. Assuming he can translate those numbers back to the major league level, he should find a contributing role in the Oriole pen over the next month. Rotoworld.com 57 minutes ago
  • Rockies activate Kendrick from DL
    Rockies activated RHP Kyle Kendrick from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Right shoulder inflammation sidelined Kendrick for the entirety of August. His numbers are enough to inflame any shoulder, as he was pitching to a 6.43 ERA over 21 starts. The 31-year-old right-hander is not a palatable fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:08 am

  • Indians activate Floyd from 60-day DL
    Indians activated RHP Gavin Floyd from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Floyd underwent elbow surgery in March to repair a second break of the right olecranon bone in his pitching elbow. In his last rehab outing, the 32-year-old tossed three innings of scoreless ball, allowing three hits. He'll work out of the Indians pen in September as he looks to gain some momentum heading into free agency in the off-season. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:41 am
  • Tigers recall reliever Kyle Ryan
    Tigers recalled LHP Kyle Ryan from Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: Ryan's been hit hard in previous major league opportunities this season, having allowed 23 runs on 39 hits over 33 1/3 innings (including five starts). That works out to a tough 5.94 ERA. He should see work out of the pen in low-leverage situations. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:29 am
  • Cubs call up Trevor Cahill from Triple-A
    Cubs purchased the contract of RHP Trevor Cahill from Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: Cahill struck out seven and walked three over 7 2/3 scoreless innings in Triple-A after signing with the Cubs last month. The 27-year-old has really struggled in the majors this season and will likely pitch in mop-up duty. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:36 am
  • Cubs call up LHP Wada from Triple-A
    Cubs recalled LHP Tsuyoshi Wada from Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: Wada landed on the disabled list toward the end of June due to a shoulder issue and has been pitching in the minors since. The southpaw owns a 3.73 ERA and 31/11 K/BB ratio over 31 1/3 innings with the Cubs this season and will likely pitch in a long relief role. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:34 am
  • Phils transfer LHP Harrison to 60-day DL
    Phillies transferred LHP Matt Harrison from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Harrison was placed on the disabled list with back inflammation after being acquired from the Rangers in the Cole Hamels deal at the end of July. The southpaw won't pitch again this season, but remains under contract through 2017. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:18 am

  • Phils transfer RHP Billinsgley to 60-day DL
    Phillies transferred RHP Chad Billingsley from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Billingsley landed on the disabled list in mid-July with a right flexor strain and has been officially ruled out for the season. The Phillies gambled on the former Dodger by giving him a one-year, $1.5 million deal over the winter, but he ended up making just seven starts while posting a 5.84 ERA. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:10 am
    60-Day DL

  • Rays recall LHP Moore from Triple-A
    Rays recalled LHP Matt Moore from Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Moore was demoted about a month ago after posting an 8.78 ERA over six starts in his return from Tommy John surgery. The results have been much better at the Triple-A level, with a 3.30 ERA and 43/8 K/BB ratio in 30 innings across five starts. He could rejoin the Rays' rotation this weekend against the Yankees. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:27 am
  • Peavy stumbles in the sixth in no-decision
    Jake Peavy went 5 2/3 innings, yielding four runs in a no-decision as the Giants lost in 14 innings to the Dodgers on Monday.

    Advice: Peavy had limited the Dodgers to only one run through five innings, but served up a game-tying two-run home run to Adrian Gonzalez, then a go-ahead solo home run to Andre Ethier in the sixth. He was pulled with two outs in the frame. In total, he gave up six hits, walked none, and struck out four. Peavy has been solid in 11 starts since returning from the disabled list, posting a 3.80 ERA. He'll face the Rockies at Coors Field in his next outing. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:49 am
  • Anderson goes five innings in a no-decision
    Brett Anderson got a no-decision, allowing three runs in five innings, in Monday's 14-inning win against the Giants.

    Advice: Anderson allowed all three runs in the third inning, when the Giants used four singles and a walk to take a 3-1 lead. The lefty, overall, gave up six hits and a walk while striking out only one. Anderson now has a 3.43 ERA with a 1.31 WHIP and a 100/40 K/BB ratio over 152 1/3 innings. He'll take the mound at Petco Park to oppose the Padres next. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:46 am
  • Doubront ineffective but still picks up a win
    Felix Doubront allowed four runs in six innings and earned the win on Monday facing the Angels.

    Advice: Doubront had allowed three over six innings, but allowed a single and a walk to lead off the seventh before departing. Reliever Edward Mujica allowed one of his inherited runners to score. Overall, the lefty gave up seven hits and walked four while striking out five. Doubront, who had battled a foot contusion, now has a 3.99 ERA with a 1.48 WHIP and a 35/16 K/BB ratio over 47 1/3 innings. He'll make a start at home against the Mariners next. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:00 pm
  • Santiago's struggles continue in loss to LAA
    Hector Santiago lasted only 2 2/3 innings, surrendering five runs in a loss to the Athletics on Monday.

    Advice: The Athletics rallied for five runs in the third inning to chase Santiago from the game. In the frame, the lefty allowed three doubles and three walks. Four of the eight outs came via strikeout but it was a moot conquest. Santiago has failed to make it five innings in each of his last three outings and carries an ever-rising 3.37 ERA with a 1.23 WHIP and a 142/54 K/BB ratio over 152 1/3 innings. He'll try to rebound at home when he takes on the Rangers next. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:58 pm
  • Lewis serves up six runs in loss to Padres
    Colby Lewis lost to the Padres on Monday, serving up six runs (five earned) in 5 2/3 innings.

    Advice: The Padres scored only twice through the first five innings, but they plated four runs in the sixth and chased Lewis from the game. Overall, the right-hander gave up seven hits and a pair of walks while striking out two on the evening. While 2015 has been an improvement on the previous season, his 4.50 ERA isn't too desirable. Lewis will look for better results in a road start versus the Angels. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:06 pm
  • Ross stymies Rangers with 7 shutout frames
    Tyson Ross pitched brilliantly in Monday's win, shutting the Rangers out over seven innings.

    Advice: Ross allowed only six base runners on three hits, two walks, and a hit batsman. It's only the second time Ross has been able to complete the seventh inning in his last 13 starts. He still has solid numbers though, owning a 3.27 ERA with a 1.35 WHIP and a 176/74 K/BB ratio over 165 innings. Ross will face the Dodgers at home next. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:04 pm
  • Bettis struggles, but takes a no-decision
    Chad Bettis struggled, allowing four runs in six innings, but left with a no-decision as the Rockies came back to beat the Diamondbacks on Monday.

    Advice: Bettis allowed 11 hits, setting a season-high. Three of the runs came in during the third inning, including two on an A.J. Pollock home run. The right-hander walked none and struck out four on the evening as well. Bettis will head into a home start versus the Giants with a 4.78 ERA, a 1.43 WHIP, and a 73/32 K/BB ratio over 86 2/3 innings.

  • Ray pitches well, but takes a no-decision
    Robbie Ray allowed one run in 5 2/3 innings, but took a no-decision in Monday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: The only run came around on a Jose Reyes ground out in the third inning. On the evening, Ray scattered five hits and three walks while striking out eight. The lefty now carries a 3.72 ERA with a 1.32 WHIP and an 87/34 K/BB ratio over 96 2/3 innings. He'll look to earn his first win since July 7 when he faces the Cubs at Wrigley Field in his next start. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:20 pm
  • Gonzalez allows 3 runs in a no-decision
    Gio Gonzalez took a no-decision in Monday's loss to the Cardinals, serving up three runs in six innings.

    Advice: All three runs scored in the fourth inning, when the Cardinals took advantage of a walk and four consecutive singles. Gonzalez, overall, gave up five hits, walked two, and struck out four. The lefty has had a tough four-start run lately, pushing his ERA up to 4.13 with a 1.47 WHIP and a 127/53 K/BB ratio over 141 2/3 innings. Gonzalez will try to get back in the win column in his next start at home against the Braves. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:29 pm
  • Manny Banuelos to start on Tuesday
    Manny Banuelos (elbow) will be activated from the disabled list to start on Tuesday against the Marlins.

    Advice: Banuelos went just two innings in a rehab start last Thursday, so he figures to be on a relatively limited pitch count Tuesday. The left-hander has missed the last five weeks of action with inflammation in his pitching elbow. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:25 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Miller's winless streak extended to 19 games
    Shelby Miller remained winless since May 17, firing seven innings of one-run ball in a loss to the Marlins on Monday.

    Advice: As usual, the Braves didn't offer him any run support. Miller's lone mistake occurred in the second inning, when Cole Gillespie hammered a solo home run out to left field. It was one of six hits he allowed with no walks and four strikeouts. Despite an awful 5-12 record, Miller has had a great season, sporting a 2.56 ERA with a 1.18 WHIP and a 147/58 K/BB ratio over 172 innings. He'll try not to have his winless streak extended to 20 starts when he faces the Nationals in a road match-up next. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:20 pm
  • Chad Billingsley (elbow) ruled out for season
    Chad Billingsley (elbow) has officially been ruled out for the season.

    Advice: Billingsley had been holding out hope of returning from a strained flexor in his right elbow. He does not need surgery. "It's unfortunate," Phillies assistant general manager Scott Proefrock said. "We had high hopes for him coming back. He had made a lot of progress. It just didn't work out for us."

  • Marco Gonzales to make spot start Tuesday
    Marco Gonzales will be recalled to start on Tuesday versus the Nationals in place of Carlos Martinez (back).

    Advice: Gonzales has been limited to just 75 1/3 innings this season due to a pectoral/shoulder issue, but he's posted a 3.26 ERA since returning from a setback in mid-July. It's possible he could be in line for a few starts this month as the Cardinals look to rest Martinez and Michael Wacha. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:59 pm

  • Shelby Miller starting Monday versus Marlins
    Shelby Miller is starting Monday against the Marlins.

    Advice: Miller will jump ahead in the Braves' rotation to fill in for Michael Foltynewicz, who has been scratched from his scheduled turn due to fever and viral symptoms. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:38 pm
  • Foltynewicz scratched Monday; Miller starting
    Michael Foltynewicz has been scratched from his scheduled start Monday due to fever and viral symptoms.

    Advice: Shelby Miller is going to take the mound instead against the Marlins. He'll be pitching on regular rest because of Thursday's team off day. Foltynewicz, who owns a rough 5.71 ERA in 86 2/3 innings this year, should be ready to rejoin the rotation later in the week. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:36 pm
  • Steve Johnson expected to join O's on Tues.
    Steve Johnson is expected to join the Orioles on Tuesday.

    Advice: He'll be part of the club's first wave of September callups. Johnson has not appeared in a major league game since 2013, but he boasts a 2.30 ERA, 1.079 WHIP, and 67/16 K/BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings this season at Triple-A Norfolk. The 28-year-old right-hander should do well in a middle relief role over the final month of the 2015 campaign. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:05 am
  • Matt Moore to rejoin Rays' rotation in Sept.
    Matt Moore will rejoin the Rays' rotation when rosters expand in September.

    Advice: Moore was awful in six starts with the big club but has rebounded at Triple-A Durham, posting a 3.30 ERA and 43/8 K/BB ratio over 30 innings. That includes a 16-strikeout game two starts ago. It's unclear who Moore will replace in the rotation, although he's on the same schedule as Erasmo Ramirez. "It seems Matt is in a really good place, and to his credit, he went down there and worked on some things we thought he needed to work on, and he also agreed,'' manager Kevin Cash said. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:06 am
  • Reds shell Garza for seven runs
    Matt Garza continued to struggle in a Saturday no-decision against the Reds, surrendering seven runs on 11 hits over 3 2/3 innings.

    Advice: The Reds smacked Garza in the face early, scoring twice in the first inning and four more times in the second. The big blow in that second frame was a three-run homer by Jay Bruce. The tough outing is nothing new, as Garza's allowed a whopping 19 runs in 13 1/3 innings over his last three starts. He'll drag a 5.56 ERA and 1.54 WHIP into a home start against the Pirates next time he takes the ball. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:15 pm
  • Kendrick to return Tuesday against Arizona
    Kyle Kendrick (shoulder) will start one of the games in Tuesday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Kendrick missed all of August with right shoulder inflammation. He's been among the worst starters in MLB this year, winning just three of his 21 starts with a brutal 6.43 ERA. The 31-year-old makes for a poor streaming option against the D-backs. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:09 pm
    12:10 pm vs Ari; 5:40 pm vs ^ Ari
     
  • Robbie Ray will have his next start pushed back
    Robbie Ray's next start will be pushed back to Monday.

    Advice: Ray was supposed to pitch Sunday against the Athletics but will get an extra day of rest after laboring through his last outing (3 IP, 5 H, 6 ER Tuesday against St. Louis). The left-hander is a dismal 0-6 since the All-Star break with a 5.93 ERA. The Diamondbacks are expected to call up a spot starter from Triple-A to pitch Sunday's series finale. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:33 pm
  • Gavin Floyd will join Indians on September 1
    The Indians will activate right-hander Gavin Floyd (elbow) from the disabled list on Tuesday.

    Advice: Floyd has spent most of the season recovering from elbow surgery. He struggled in his first rehab appearance but looked much better in his last outing (3 IP, 3 H, 0 R). The 32-year-old will pitch out of the bullpen for Cleveland. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:00 pm
  • Doubront has start pushed back to Monday
    Felix Doubront (foot) will have his next start pushed back until Monday.

    Advice: He had been scheduled to work against the D'Backs on Saturday, but the A's want to play things cautiously and give his foot a couple of extra days to heal. Aaron Brooks was recalled from Triple-A and will start in his place on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:33 am
  • Jungmann keeps Reds off scoreboard
    Taylor Jungmann turned in a solid performance in Friday's win over the Reds, firing six innings of scoreless ball.

    Advice: Jungmann allowed just three hits while striking out five and walking three over his six innings of work. The shutout performance lowered his ERA from an already stellar 2.66 to an even more stellar 2.48. A home start against the Pirates is upcoming as the 25-year-old right-hander looks to hit the stretch run on fire. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:23 pm
  • Banuelos (elbow) begins rehab assignment
    Manny Banuelos (elbow) tossed two scoreless innings in his first rehab start with Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.

    Advice: Banuelos walked two and didn't recorded any strikeouts, but he yielded just one hit. The left-hander will make at least a couple more rehab starts before hopefully rejoining the Braves' bullpen at some point in September. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:07 am

  • Peavy pitches into seventh in win over Cubs
    Jake Peavy tossed a nice game in Wednesday's win over the Cubs, surrendering two runs on five hits over 6 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Peavy did walk three, but he was able to limit the damage the occasionally spotty control might have otherwise brought to his pitching line. Kris Bryant hit a shallow two-run single in the first inning to account for both runs against the 34-year-old right-hander. The owner of a 4.21 ERA and 1.29 WHIP, Peavy will dance with the Dodgers in a road start next time his number is called. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:07 pm
  • Anderson pitches into the seventh for a win
    Brett Anderson limited the Reds to three unearned runs in 6 2/3 innings to pick up the win on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Reds scored all three runs in Anderson's final inning. Chase Utley committed a fielding error which would have ended the inning, but instead put runners on the corners with two outs. Anderson would allow back-to-back run-scoring singles before being lifted. The lefty, overall, gave up five hits and a walk while striking out four. He now owns a 3.36 ERA with a 1.30 WHIP and a 99/39 K/BB ratio over 147 1/3 innings. Anderson will face the Cubs at home in his next outing. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:58 pm
  • Gonzalez knocked around by Padres in a loss
    Gio Gonzalez served up five runs (four earned) in 4 2/3 innings, taking the loss on Wednesday facing the Padres.

    Advice: Gonzalez gave up four runs in the third inning on a two-run Matt Kemp double and a two-run Justin Upton home run. They were two of seven hits he surrendered in the outing along with two walks and six strikeouts. The lefty appeared to have things figured out but has struggled in his last three starts, causing his ERA to rise back up to 4.11 with a 1.48 WHIP and a 123/51 K/BB ratio over 135 2/3 innings. Gonzalez will hope for better results next week when he faces the Cardinals on the road. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:32 pm
  • Ross pitches into the 7th to earn 9th win
    Tyson Ross earned his 9th win, yielding four runs in 6 1/3 innings versus the Nationals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Ross hit a batter and allowed a double with one out in the seventh before departing. Relievers Shawn Kelley and Mark Rzepczynski allowed both inherited runners to score. Overall, not a bad outing by any means for the right-hander, as he scattered six hits and two walks while striking out nine. Ross owns a 3.42 ERA, a 1.38 WHIP, and a 169/72 K/BB ratio over 158 innings. He'll face the Phillies in a road start next. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:30 pm
  • Santiago bashed by Tigers in a losing effort
    Hector Santiago gave up five runs over 4 1/3 innings, earning the loss on Wednesday against the Tigers.

    Advice: Santiago allowed only one run through the first four innings on a Nick Castellanos home run. He fell apart in the fifth, allowing two two-run home runs to Miguel Cabrera and J.D. Martinez. On the evening, he gave up seven hits, walked three, and struck out three. Santiago's ever-rising ERA now sits at 3.13 with a 1.20 WHIP and a 138/51 K/BB ratio over 149 2/3 innings. He will attempt to bounce back in Cleveland versus the Indians in his next outing. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:13 pm
  • Felix Doubront (foot) cleared for Saturday
    Felix Doubront (foot) has been cleared for his next scheduled start on Saturday in Arizona.

    Advice: Doubront exited Monday's outing after just two innings due to a right foot contusion, but he ran and threw without issue Wednesday. The left-hander holds a 2.41 ERA over 18 2/3 innings since joining the A's. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:26 am
  • Kendrick (shoulder) nears rehab assignment
    Kyle Kendrick (shoulder) is expected to be cleared for a rehab assignment after getting through a 45-pitch simulated game Tuesday with no issues.

    Advice: "He looked good," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "No issues. Feels healthy. Probably the next step is talking about getting him out in a rehab start." Kendrick should be a couple weeks away from rejoining the Rockies' rotation. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:47 am
    12:10 pm vs Ari; 5:40 pm vs ^ Ari
     
  • Robbie Ray shellacked in loss to Cardinals
    Robbie Ray was knocked around by the Cardinals on Tuesday, allowing six runs over three innings in a loss.

    Advice: Ray's command failed him in the outing, as the southpaw walked five and gave up another five hits before exiting. He's now lost six straight decisions, although most haven't been as lopsided as Tuesday's contest. Even so, Ray is now 3-10 with a 3.86 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 79/32 K/BB ratio through 16 starts. An interleague date with the Athletics is on tap for Sunday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:31 pm
  • Foltynewicz hurt by Braves' defense in a loss
    Michael Foltynewicz allowed four runs (all unearned) in five innings, resulting in a loss to the Astros on Tuesday.

    Advice: Adonis Garcia made a fielding error in the first inning which helped the Rockies score twice. Garcia committed another error to allow Nick Hundley to reach to lead off the fourth, and the Rockies would go on to score twice more. It wasn't a bad effort by Foltynewicz, as he limited the opposition to five hits and a walk while striking out three. The inconsistent right-hander has a 5.71 ERA, a 1.63 WHIP, and a 77/29 K/BB ratio over 86 2/3 innings. He'll hope for better defense when he hosts the Marlins in his next start. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:59 pm
  • Bettis strong over five innings to down ATL
    Chad Bettis pitched five innings of one-run ball to earn the win against the Braves on Tuesday.

    Advice: Bettis, in his return from the disabled list, allowed an RBI single to Nick Markakis in the fifth inning, the only blemish on his line. He scattered five hits and a pair of walks while striking out four. His 4.69 ERA isn't pretty, but it's weighed down heavily by a poor start against the Angels on July 7. Bettis will look to put together another strong effort next week at home against the Diamondbacks. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:56 pm

  • Felix Doubront (foot) to be re-evaluated Wed.
    Felix Doubront (foot) will be re-evaluated on Wednesday before a decision is made on whether he can make his next start.

    Advice: Doubront left Monday's outing after just two innings due to a right foot contusion. He's still limping on Tuesday but said the foot is feeling much better. We'll know soon whether the A's will have to find another fill-in starter. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:27 pm
  • Floyd (elbow) to make second rehab start Sat.
    Gavin Floyd (elbow) will make his second rehab start Saturday for Double-A Akron.

    Advice: Floyd tossed three scoreless innings Monday in a rookie league game. The veteran right-hander needed surgery in March to repair a re-break of the right olecranon bone in his pitching elbow and might not make an appearance at the major league level this season. He will become a free agent five days after the 2015 World Series. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:57 pm
  • Kendrick (shoulder) to throw sim. game
    Kyle Kendrick (shoulder) is set to throw a simulated game on Sunday.

    Advice: Kendrick has been out all month with right shoulder tendinitis, but he should be back with the Rockies in September at this rate. The 30-year-old has really struggled this season, posting a 6.43 ERA over 21 starts. No pitcher (min. 100 IP) in MLB has a higher ERA. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:48 am

  • Felix Doubront exits with bruised foot
    Felix Doubront left Monday's start against the Mariners after just two innings due to a right foot contusion.

    Advice: Doubront was hit by a Robinson Cano liner in the first inning. He gutted it out through another frame but was in too much pain to continue. It's unclear whether Doubront will undergo an X-ray. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:20 pm
  • Chad Bettis activated from disabled list
    Rockies activated RHP Chad Bettis from the 15-day disabled list.

  • Garza hammered for seven earned by Nats
    Matt Garza was hammered for seven earned runs in 4 2/3 innings as the Brewers fell to the Nationals on Sunday.

    Advice: Garza was staked to a two-run lead after the top of the first inning in the nation's capital, but he gave back one run in the bottom of the first and four runs in the third. Washington then poured on another four runs in the fifth. Garza's ERA is back up above 5.00. He'll get the Reds next at home. Rotoworld.com Aug 23, 2:08 pm
  • Jungmann hit up for five runs vs Nationals
    Taylor Jungmann struggled in Saturday's loss to the Nationals, allowing five runs on seven hits over four innings.

    Advice: Jungmann struck out five and walked three on the evening. Michael Taylor burned him for a two-run homer in the second inning and the Nationals tacked up three more in the fourth to drive Jungmann from the game. We'll chalk this up to an anomaly. Since entering the Brewer rotation in early June, the 25-year-old right-hander holds a 2.66 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 78/29 K/BB ratio over 84 2/3 innings. He'll try to bounce back from Saturday's tough outing when he tangos with the Reds in his next start. Rotoworld.com Aug 22, 8:22 pm
  • Moore strikes out 16 batters at AAA Durham
    Matt Moore struck out 16 batters in six innings Saturday evening at Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: That's a new Durham record. Moore was optioned to the minors on August 3 after going 1-3 with an 8.78 ERA over his first six starts for the Rays coming off Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. The 26-year-old left-hander should be back in the majors soon. Rotoworld.com Aug 22, 5:57 pm
  • Hector Santiago gets lifted in fourth
    Hector Santiago was lifted after giving up four runs -- two earned -- in 3 2/3 innings Friday versus the White Sox.

    Advice: Santiago walked four and threw 95 pitches while getting just 11 outs. The All-Star is 0-3 with a 5.06 ERA in his last six starts. He'll probably bounce back some, but a return to first-half form isn't particularly likely. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 10:45 pm
