  • Jose Iglesias (finger) to undergo more tests
    Jose Iglesias will undergo more tests after his ailing right middle finger swelled up on him overnight.

    Advice: Iglesias was diagnosed with just a bruise on Thursday, but his finger feels worse a day later and that's obviously not a good sign. The Tigers should have more on the shortstop's status at some point over the weekend. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:19 pm

  • Dixon Machado recalled from Triple-A
    Tigers recalled INF Dixon Machado from Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: Machado has just one hit in eight plate appearances this season with the big club. He'll provide some depth with Jose Iglesias (finger) banged up. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:30 pm

  • Adeiny Hechavarria (hamstring) not in lineup
    Adeiny Hechavarria (hamstring) is not in the Marlins' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Hechavarria departed Wednesday's game with a left hamstring strain and Thursday's off day apparently wasn't enough to heal up. He's day-to-day. Miguel Rojas is at shortstop in his place. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:25 pm
  • Jordy Mercer reaches four times
    Jordy Mercer went 2-for-2 with two walks and two runs scored Thursday against the Brewers.

    Advice: Mercer was making his sixth start since coming off the DL on June 23. If he hits, it'll give the Pirates more reason to play Jung-Ho Kang at third. He is the superior defense shortstop, after all. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:09 pm

  • Iglesias is day-to-day with finger contusion
    Jose Iglesias is considered day-to-day after leaving Thursday's game with a right middle finger contusion.

    Advice: Considering how much pain Iglesias appeared to be in after getting drilled with a pitch while trying to bunt, he's lucky to have avoided a fracture. He should rejoin the Tigers lineup in a day or two. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:31 pm

  • Jose Iglesias leaves game with hand injury
    Jose Iglesias was forced to leave Thursday's contest against the Royals after he was hit by a pitch on his right hand while attempting to bunt.

    Advice: The severity of the injury remains unclear, but it appeared as though Iglesias was in quite a bit of pain. He'll presumably head for X-rays and the Tigers should have an update on his status shortly. If he's forced to miss any time, Andrew Romine would be the biggest beneficiary.

    Ruben Tejada enjoyed a four-RBI night as the Mets topped the Phillies on Wednesday.

  • Gregorius keeps mashing, Yanks crush Red Sox
    Didi Gregorius went 2-for-4 with a home run and three runs scored, and the Yankees outlasted the Red Sox 13-8 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Gregorius scored three of the team's 13 runs and hit one of their five homers on the afternoon. It was the third homer in his last seven games as Gregorius has been one of the hottest hitters in the game lately. He's 16-for-28 in that span, collecting 12 RBI and eight runs scored. The shortstop is now batting a respectable .272/.321/.372 with eight home runs, 44 RBI and 49 runs scored on the year. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:13 pm

    Advice: Drew hit a three-run homer in the third inning, one of five home runs in the game. It was the latest in a stretch of good games for Drew, who is 9-for-12 with two doubles, two homers, nine RBI and six runs scored in his last four games. On the year, Drew is hitting just .211/.281/.404. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:51 pm

    Giants released INF Everth Cabrera.

    Advice: Cabrera signed a minor league deal with the Giants in mid-July but went on to bat just .231 at Triple-A Sacramento. The future is cloudy for the 28-year-old shortstop. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:03 pm

    Adeiny Hechavarria (hamstring) is considered day-to-day.

  • Crawford will compete in Arizona Fall League
    Phillies SS prospect J.P. Crawford will play for Glendale in the Arizona Fall League.

    Advice: The 20-year-old will head to the desert for some extra seasoning. Crawford's third year in the Phillies organization has been a success. In 102 games, he's posted a solid .295 average with 12 steals and 67 runs scored. In Glendale, he'll be teammates with top prospects Austin Meadows and A.J. Reed. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:18 pm

  • Pedro Florimon called up by Pirates
    Pirates purchased the contract of INF Pedro Florimon from Rookie-level Bristol.

    Advice: Florimon was removed from the 40-man roster just last week, but he's back on it now and will give the Pirates infield depth during the final month. He won't see significant action. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:57 pm
  • Story lights it up with four hits Tuesday
    Rockies SS prospect Trevor Story went 4-for-4 with a triple and two RBI in Tuesday's win for Triple-A Albuquerque

    Advice: The 22-year-old has shown some nice pop this year, contributing 18 homers and 77 RBI across two minor league levels. A recent 13-for-28 stretch has propelled his average from .261 to where it stands now at .281. Story's path to the big leagues is clearer now that Troy Tulowitzki has moved on to the Blue Jays.

  • Andrelton Simmons (ankle) returns to lineup
    Andrelton Simmons (ankle) is back in the Braves' lineup Wednesday.

  • Owings steals 15th bag of the season vs. Rox
    Chris Owings stole his 15th base of the season in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader the Rockies.

    Advice: Owings went 1-for-3 and scored a run to go along with the theft. The 15 steals are easily a career high for the 24-year-old, who is hitting just .239/.269/.340 overall. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:40 pm

  • Drury making MLB debut Tuesday
    Brandon Drury will make his major league debut Tuesday against the Rockies.

    Advice: Drury, who was called up Tuesday, will start at third base and bat seventh against left-hander Yohan Flande. The 22-year-old has batted .303/.344/.412 with five homers and 61 RBI over 130 games this season between Double- and Triple-A. The power has fallen off a bit, but he's ready for his first taste of the majors and could be relevant in NL-only fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:57 am
  • Diamondbacks recall Brandon Drury
    Diamondbacks recalled 3B Brandon Drury from Triple-A Reno.

    Advice: Drury's one of the Diamondbacks top prospects. The 22-year-old third baseman was slashing a robust .331/.384/.458 with two homers and 25 RBI in 251 at-bats for Triple-A Reno. He'll see his first major league action as part of the Snakes' expanded September roster. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:16 am
  • Gregorius racks up four hits but Yankees lose
    Didi Gregorius singled four times and knocked in a run in five at-bats, but the Yankees fell 4-3 to the Red Sox on Monday.

    Advice: Gregorius knocked in a run in the fourth inning to tie the game at 4-4. He stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and one out in the ninth inning, but couldn't knock in the tying run as he hit a fly ball to right field to end the game. The shortstop has had a nice week at the plate, currently on a five-game hitting streak during which he is batting .619 (13-for-21) with two home runs and 11 RBI. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:07 pm

    Advice: Drew singled and scored in the Yankees' three-run second inning, hit a two-run shot in the Yankees' four-run third inning, drew a bases-loaded walk in the fifth inning, and then singled twice and scored another run in the Yankees' nine-run seventh. Drew bumped his batting average from .192 to .201 and his OPS from .632 to .659 in the big afternoon victory for the current American League Wild Card leaders. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:36 pm

  • Gregorius drives in six in blowout of Braves
    Didi Gregorius posted a huge game in Friday's 15-4 win over the Braves, hitting a three-run homer and finishing with six total RBI.

    Advice: Yowza yowza. Gregorius jumped into the action early with a three-run homer off Williams Perez in the first inning. He would add a two-run single in the second, then slouch off on the RBI binge until the eighth, when he hit an RBI single just for fun. When the dust settled, the Yankee shortstop had finished 4-for-5 with six RBI. This was his second four-hit game of the season and the six RBI represented a season high. For the year, he's slashing .260/.306/.355 with seven homers and 40 RBI. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:39 pm

    Andrelton Simmons (knee) is back in Tuesday's lineup against the Rockies.

    Advice: Simmons hasn't played since Saturday due to left knee soreness, but it's not a major concern. He's batting seventh in his return. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:04 pm
