  • Jon Gray gives up four runs to Arizona
    Jon Gray surrendered four runs and 10 hits in 5 1/3 innings Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: With a 6.15 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP through six starts, Gray is pitching about as well as his minor league numbers suggested he would. This was the first one of his starts that the Rockies managed to win, though Gray wasn't involved in the decision. Yesterday, 9:50 pm
  • Tyler Lyons allows three runs in start
    Tyler Lyons pitched six innings of three-run ball in his spot start Wednesday against the Nationals.

    Advice: Lyons will probably be called on once or twice more this month with the Cardinals sitting pretty in the NL playoff picture. He'll be a decent option in NL-only leagues when he gets the nod as a starter. Yesterday, 9:17 pm
  • Tommy Milone shuts down White Sox
    Tommy Milone shut out the White Sox for seven innings Wednesday to improve to 7-4.

    Advice: Three of those wins have come against the White Sox. He has an 0.87 ERA against them and a 4.27 ERA versus everyone else. The quality start tonight was his first in seven tries since the All-Star break. Yesterday, 8:27 pm
  • Locke can't complete 4th, loses to Brewers
    Jeff Locke lost to the Brewers on Wednesday, yielding five runs in 3 2/3 innings.

    Advice: The Brewers were hitting everything Locke was throwing, racking up nine hits. The lefty walked none and struck out only two. He's been more miss than hit in the second half and will bring a 4.66 ERA, 1.44 WHIP, and 107/52 K/BB ratio over 145 innings into next week's start in Cincinnati against the Reds. Yesterday, 8:26 pm
  • Hughes (back) to throw bullpen session Thurs.
    Phil Hughes (back) will throw a bullpen session on Thursday.

    Advice: It will be the first work Hughes has done off a mound since he went on the disabled list with a back injury in mid-August. Assuming things progress Hughes could be back in the Twins' rotation before the end of the month, but with minor league seasons drawing to a close he's running out of time to head out on a rehab assignment. The picture will be clearer after Thursday's session. Yesterday, 8:17 pm

  • Henry Owens chased early in loss to Yankees
    Henry Owens didn't even escape the second inning Wednesday, allowing seven runs over 1 2/3 innings in a loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Even more surprising was the fact that Owens actually worked a perfect top of the first inning before completely falling apart in the second. The Yankees managed six hits -- including two home runs -- and two walks against Owens before he exited. His ERA rose from 4.03 to 5.87 in the start, evening his record at 2-2. Owens will look for a better showing Tuesday against the Blue Jays. Yesterday, 4:43 pm
  • MRI shows no major damage for Feldman
    An MRI taken Wednesday on Scott Feldman's right shoulder showed no major structural damage.

    Advice: "Just irritation right now," Feldman told reporters. "Hopefully it's just a couple extra days off and we'll go from there." The right-hander made an early exit from his start Tuesday night against the Mariners after experiencing some discomfort in his throwing shoulder, but it sounds like a minor issue. It won't be hard for the Astros to skip him one time through their rotation. Yesterday, 1:21 pm
  • Cardinals recall Tyler Lyons from AAA level
    Cardinals recalled LHP Tyler Lyons from Triple-A Memphis.

    Advice: Lyons is going to make a spot start for the Cardinals on Wednesday night against the Nationals. The left-hander will probably then slide into a long relief role. Yesterday, 1:07 pm
  • Matt Moore to start on Saturday
    Matt Moore will rejoin the Rays' rotation on Saturday in New York versus the Yankees.

    Advice: Moore was demoted to the minors after holding an 8.78 ERA in six starts, but he got his act together at Triple-A Durham, posting a 3.30 mark and 43/8 K/BB ratio over 30 innings. He remains a sketchy fantasy play down the stretch, but those in AL-only leagues can probably take the gamble. Yesterday, 12:52 pm
  • Blair goes eight innings in win for Reno
    Diamondbacks RHP prospect Aaron Blair allowed one run and four hits over eight strong innings Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Reno.

    Advice: The eight-inning effort was the longest of Blair's professional career. The right-hander is 5-1 with a 2.45 ERA over his last eight starts. Blair's strikeout numbers have taken a hit this year (6.86 K/9 compared to 9.97 last season) but the 23-year-old remains on track to join the Diamondbacks' rotation sometime in 2016. Yesterday, 12:40 pm
    Not Active
  • Williams Perez struggles again in loss
    Williams Perez was touched up for six runs -- four earned -- on nine hits and a walk over five frames in Wednesday's loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: Perez served up a home run, didn't record a strikeout and needed 85 pitches to get through his five innings. He's seen his ERA go from 2.88 to 5.65 over seven rough second-half starts. Perez will probably get another shot next week in Philadelphia since the Braves don't have much else to turn to. Yesterday, 12:37 pm
  • Ross Ohlendorf called up by Rangers
    Rangers purchased the contract of RHP Ross Ohlendorf from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Ohlendorf has battled a groin issue for much of the season but re-signed with the Rangers last month after being released. He'll be used in low-leverage situations. Yesterday, 6:30 am
  • Cashner goes five innings in a no-decision
    Andrew Cashner yielded four runs in five innings, taking a no-decision as the Padres lost to the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Cashner served up two runs on a Prince Fielder home run in the first inning, one run on a Shin-Soo Choo double in the third, and one more run in the sixth on a sacrifice fly. On the evening, the right-hander gave up eight hits and struck out four without issuing a walk. Cashner will take a 4.15 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, and a 134/48 K/BB ratio over 156 innings into a home start against the Dodgers. Tuesday, 10:58 pm
  • Kendrick allows one run over four in return
    Kyle Kendrick allowed one run over four innings in his return to the mound against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

    Advice: Kendrick was activated from the 15-day disabled list earlier in the day after missing a month with right shoulder inflammation, and he pitched well in his return. A Paul Goldschmidt solo homer was the only damage against him, and Kendrick gave up three hits and two walks in total. Kendrick should be able to go a little deeper his next time out, tentatively scheduled for Sunday against the Giants. Tuesday, 10:34 pm
  • De La Rosa throws quality start for 12th win
    Rubby De La Rosa allowed three runs over six innings to earn the win in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rockies.

    Advice: De La Rosa gave up six hits, including a Nolan Arenado home run, without walking a batter in the start. The win was his sixth in his last seven decisions and moved him to 12-6 through 27 starts. De La Rosa will look to improve on his 4.46 ERA and 1.30 WHIP while adding to his win collection next week against the Giants. Tuesday, 10:31 pm
  • Villanueva strikes out six in 3 1/3 innings
    Carlos Villanueva struck out six over 3 1/3 scoreless innings Tuesday against the Nationals.

    Advice: After Marco Gonzales failed to make it through three innings, Villanueva came on to give the Cardinals 3 1/3 innings of one-hit ball. The Cards would eventually come back to win the game in the ninth. Performances like that have been commonplace for the 31-year-old long reliever this season, as Villanueva now has a 2.19 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 47/19 K/BB ratio over 53 1/3 innings of work. The veteran journeyman has been an unheralded godsend to the Cards this season. Tuesday, 9:41 pm
  • Scott Feldman (shoulder) to have MRI Wed.
    Scott Feldman (shoulder) will undergo an MRI on Wednesday.

    Advice: Feldman revealed after Tuesday's start that his shoulder discomfort gradually built up during the game before it finally forced him to exit in the third. The Astros are currently rolling with a six-man rotation, but it looks like they might be forced to go back to a traditional five-man set. Tuesday, 8:59 pm
  • Williams Perez recalled from Triple-A
    Braves recalled RHP Williams Perez from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Perez will take the ball on Wednesday versus the Marlins. He got off to a strong start this season with the Braves but has been awful of late, posting a 9.87 ERA in six second-half starts. Tuesday, 7:49 pm
  • Scott Feldman exits start with sore shoulder
    Scott Feldman left Tuesday's start against the Mariners with right shoulder discomfort.

    Advice: Feldman might have been pitching hurt all night, as he entered the game on a hot streak and then proceeded to allow three runs on three hits and five walks over 2 2/3 frames. It's unclear at this point whether he'll be sent for an MRI, but it would seem likely. The Astros should have more on his status after the game. Tuesday, 6:37 pm
  • 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. Tuesday, 10:08 am
  • 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. Tuesday, 6:27 am
  • Phil Hughes (back) nearing mound work
    Phil Hughes (back) is tentatively scheduled to resume throwing off a mound mid- to late-week.

    Advice: Hughes was originally expected to return from the disabled list when first eligible, but his back injury has lingered. The right-hander is looking at a mid-September return in a best-case scenario. Sunday, 10:25 am
    15-Day DL
    10:10 am vs CWS
  • 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. Sunday, 9:06 am
  • 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. Saturday, 3:09 pm
  • Braves option Williams Perez to Triple-A
    Braves optioned RHP Williams Perez to Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Perez was destroyed by the Yankees on Friday, surrendering eight runs in just 1 2/3 innings of work. Still, he'll likely be back with the club in some capacity after rosters expand in September. Saturday, 12:06 pm
  • Owens walks four in uneven start vs Mets
    Henry Owens slowed the Mets' recent offensive ways on Friday, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits over five innings.

    Advice: Owens kept the Met offense in check despite issuing four walks. After a Travis d'Arnaud RBI single in the fourth brought home the first run of the game for either team, an error by Rusney Castillo in the fifth allowed the second run on Owens' line to score. He wouldn't factor into the decision. The 23-year-old lefty surrendered seven runs to the Mariners two starts ago, but he's more than held his own beyond that stinker. Through five major league starts, he holds a 4.03 ERA and 1.31 WHIP. He'll face the Yankees at Fenway next time he toes the rubber. Friday, 8:43 pm
  • Yankees rock Perez for eight runs in 1 2/3 IP
    Williams Perez was destroyed in Friday's loss to the Yankees, allowing eight runs on five hits over just 1 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Whatever Perez was throwing up early, it wasn't working. The Yankees scored five in the first on a two-run double by Chase Headley and a three-run homer by Didi Gregorious, then posted another four runs in the second to drive Perez from the game. The 24-year-old right-hander saw his ERA balloon from 4.34 to 5.56 and his WHIP now stands at 1.60. Assuming he sticks in the Braves rotation following this debacle, a road start against the Marlins is up next on his schedule. Friday, 8:07 pm
  • Jon Gray bounced in fifth inning against Bucs
    Jon Gray struggled in a no-decision against the Pirates on Friday, surrendering three runs on seven hits over 4 1/3 innings of work.

    Advice: Gray did rack up an impressive six strikeouts on the evening while walking two. It's the second straight start that Gray has failed to make it out of the fifth inning. Jung Ho Kang delivered most of the damage against him with a pair of RBI singles. Gray will look to bounce back and improve upon his 6.00 ERA when he takes the hill against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday. Friday, 7:26 pm
  • Cards score five against De La Rosa
    Jorge De La Rosa struggled in Thursday's loss to the Cardinals, allowing five runs on five hits over five innings.

    Advice: In what was a sub-par start, De La Rosa walked four and allowed two home runs over just five innings. Tony Cruz took the 26-year-old right-hander yard for a solo shot in the second inning, while Brandon Moss cranked a two-run bomb in the fifth inning. The loss was De La Rosa's first since the All-Star Break. He'll look to rebound from this start when he takes his 4.46 ERA and 1.31 WHIP into a Tuesday afternoon road showdown with the Rockies. Thursday, 10:07 pm
  • Locke delivers 7 innings of 2-run ball in win
    Jeff Locke pitched seven innings of two-run ball to earn the win versus the Marlins on Wednesday.

    Advice: Both runs came early, as Martin Prado hit a solo home run in the first inning and J.T. Realmuto plated the Marlins' second run with a ground out. Locke gave up five hits and a walk while striking out three. The quality outing was one of very few for the lefty in the second half. On the season, he's carrying a 4.46 ERA with a 1.42 WHIP and a 105/52 K/BB ratio over 141 1/3 innings. Locke will start versus the Brewers in Milwaukee next. Wednesday, 7:00 pm
  • 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. Wednesday, 6:47 am
  • Hughes (back) to resume throwing this week
    Phil Hughes (back) will resume throwing Wednesday or Thursday.

    Advice: Hughes was originally expected to return from the disabled list when first eligible, but that date has already passed and he's just now beginning to play catch. He could be out through the middle of September. Tuesday, 1:52 pm
    15-Day DL
    10:10 am vs CWS
  • 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. Tuesday, 5:48 am
  • Feldman goes eight scoreless, but Astros lose
    Scott Feldman pitched eight scoreless innings, but was left with a no-decision as the Astros fell to the Yankees on Monday.

    Advice: Feldman traded zeroes with opposing starter Nate Eovaldi for all eight innings, scattering six hits with no walks and six strikeouts. He has been quite good over his last six starts, brandishing a 1.80 ERA. On the season, the right-hander has a 3.75 ERA with a 1.27 WHIP and a 59/22 K/BB ratio over 105 2/3 innings. Feldman will face the Twins at the end of a road trip next. Monday, 7:26 pm
