  • Brian Bogusevic called up from Triple-A
    Phillies purchased the contract of OF Brian Bogusevic from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Bogusevic has hit .295/.360/.426 with 12 homers and 24 steals for Lehigh Valley this season. He'll provide depth with Domonic Brown's (concussion) situation up in the air. Today, 8:00 am
  • Yonder Alonso (back) to miss a few more games
    Padres assistant general manager Josh Stein said Thursday that Yonder Alonso (back) will be sidelined for a "couple more days."

    Advice: Alonso hasn't played since exiting Tuesday's game with lower back tightness. It sounds unlikely that he'll see any action for this weekend's series against the Dodgers. Today, 7:55 am
  • Pirates won't activate Corey Hart (shoulder)
    Corey Hart (shoulder) has returned home to Arizona and will not be activated from the disabled list.

    Advice: Hart is over the shoulder injury that put him on the disabled list back in mid-July, but the Pirates aren't interested in adding him even with expanded rosters. The 33-year-old hit just .222/.246/.352 this season and will be a free agent this winter. Today, 7:41 am
    60-Day DL
    5:15 pm @StL
  • Norris (shoulder, elbow) gets three hits
    Derek Norris (shoulder, elbow) went 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in his return to the lineup Thursday.

    Advice: Norris missed a game with a hyperextended left shoulder and elbow, but clearly it's not affecting him at the plate. He should be fine moving forward. Today, 5:39 am
  • 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. Yesterday, 9:15 pm
  • Hernan Perez goes 3-for-3
    Hernan Perez went 3-for-3 with a triple and two RBI as the Brewers topped the Pirates 5-3 on Thursday.

    Advice: Perez is hitting .281 in 160 at-bats for the Brewers, though that comes with just three walks (three!) and one homer. Of course, this is a guy who would have spent all year in Triple-A with the Tigers had he not run out of options as a 24-year-old. The Brewers had room to give him a shot, and while he shouldn't be the future at third base for the club, he will give them an alternative at the middle-infield spots next year. Yesterday, 8:19 pm
  • Domingo Santana hits sixth homer
    Domingo Santana went 2-for-3 with his sixth homer and a walk Thursday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Santana has four homers in 37 at-bats for the Brewers after hitting two in 39 at-bats for the Astros earlier this year. He lacks range in center, but the Brewers will keep running him out there in order to see how his bat comes along. Yesterday, 8:11 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. 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. 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. Yesterday, 6:48 pm
  • Shuck legs out go-ahead RBI triple
    J.B. Shuck went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit, two-run triple in Thursday afternoon's win over the Twins.

    Advice: Shuck's big two-run three-bagger came with the White Sox trailing 4-3 in the seventh inning. They wouldn't look back from their new-found lead. Nice hit off the bench for the backup outfielder, particularly given the fact that he's only seen 110 at-bats this season. In his limited role, he's hitting .282/.352/.373 with no home runs and 11 RBI. Yesterday, 1:47 pm
  • Rosario launches grand slam off Samardzija
    Eddie Rosario connected for a grand slam in the third inning of Thursday afternoon's 6-4 loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: An Eduardo Escobar infield single and a pair of walks issued by White Sox starter Jeff Samardzija set the stage for Rosario to work his grand salami magic with two outs in the third inning. The 23-year-old outfielder is posting one of the sneakier productive seasons in the bigs in 2015, as he maintains a .271/.291/.446 triple-slash with nine homers, 10 triples, 37 RBI and 10 steals. Yesterday, 1:42 pm
  • Gomes batting fifth Thursday
    Jonny Gomes will bat fifth Thursday against the Tigers.

    Advice: Gomes, who was acquired from the Braves earlier this week, will start in left field against southpaw Matt Boyd. The 34-year-old owns an .890 OPS against left-handed pitching this season and makes for an appealing play in daily formats. Yesterday, 1:21 pm
  • Nationals' Taylor (knee) out again Thursday
    Michael Taylor (knee) is out again Thursday.

    Advice: Taylor was a late scratch from Wednesday's series finale against the Cardinals with ongoing discomfort in his right knee. It's not believed to be a serious injury -- the Nationals were calling it a bruise last week -- but Taylor clearly needs at least one more day of rest. Bryce Harper is in center field and Clint Robinson is in left field on Thursday night against the Braves. Yesterday, 1:02 pm
  • Nationals activate Tyler Moore from the DL
    Nationals activated 1B/OF Tyler Moore from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Moore missed a little over two weeks with a left ankle sprain. The 28-year-old has batted just .200/.253/.347 in 162 plate appearances this season, but he'll provide some much-needed outfield depth for the Nationals in his return to the active roster on Thursday. Yesterday, 11:57 am
    4:05 pm vs Atl
  • Kiermaier (ankle) returns to Rays' lineup
    Kevin Kiermaier (ankle) went 1-for-5 in his return to the Rays' starting lineup on Wednesday.

    Advice: Kiermaier sat out Tuesday after spraining his right ankle in Monday night's series opener against the Orioles. The 25-year-old is batting just .260/.293/.416 in 127 games this season, but he has played game-changing defense in center field. And the metrics back that up. Yesterday, 6:07 am
  • Taylor (knee) a late scratch Wednesday
    Michael Taylor (knee) was a late scratch from the Nationals' lineup on Wednesday.

    Advice: Taylor was originally in the lineup for the series finale against the Cardinals, but he was replaced by Bryce Harper in center field shortly before the start of the game. Harper slid over from right field, Jayson Werth moved from left to right and Danny Espinosa, who wasn't previously in the lineup, got the start in left. The Nationals should provide an update on Taylor's status after the game. Wednesday, 4:27 pm
  • Norris suffers hyperextended shoulder, elbow
    Derek Norris suffered a hyperextended left shoulder and elbow on Tuesday.

    Advice: The injury occurred when Adrian Beltre slid into his arm on a play at the plate. "They'll see how it feels tomorrow when I wake up," Norris said Tuesday. "Sometimes these things can bounce back quick, sometimes they linger. ... Hopefully we'll be OK to go tomorrow. We'll see." Wednesday, 6:12 am
  • Alonso leaves with lower back tightness
    Yonder Alonso left Tuesday's game versus the Rangers with lower back tightness.

    Advice: It's probably a day-to-day situation, but the Padres could have more on his status later Tuesday. Alonso doubled in his lone plate appearance before exiting. Tuesday, 8:31 pm
  • Kiermaier (ankle) not in Rays' lineup Tuesday
    Kevin Kiermaier (ankle) won't play Tuesday night.

    Advice: Kiermaier sprained his right ankle on Monday night against the Orioles. He also made a fantastic catch to rob Manny Machado of a home run in that same game. The rangy center fielder should be fine in a few days. Brandon Guyer is in center Tuesday versus Baltimore. Tuesday, 1:02 pm
  • Royals announce trade for Jonny Gomes
    Royals acquired OF Jonny Gomes and cash considerations from the Braves in exchange for SS Luis Valenzuela.

    Advice: Gomes has batted just .221/.325/.364 on the season but entered play Monday with a .271/.375/.458 batting line in the second half. He should serve mainly as a pinch-hitting option versus left-handers down the stretch. Monday, 6:44 pm
  • Kevin Kiermaier exits with mild ankle sprain
    Kevin Kiermaier left Monday's game against the Orioles with a mild right ankle sprain.

    Advice: No word on whether it happened when he made a ridiculous catch in the first inning to rob Manny Machado of a home run. Consider Kiermaier day-to-day. Monday, 5:50 pm
  • Royals to acquire outfielder Jonny Gomes
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Royals have acquired Jonny Gomes from the Braves.

    Advice: CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says the Braves will receive infield prospect Luis Valenzuela in return, with the Braves also sending the Royals some cash. Gomes was in the Braves' lineup Monday but was pulled following the fifth inning after the trade was apparently agreed upon. He's hitting only .221/.325/.364 on the season but entered play Monday with a .271/.375/.458 batting line in the second half. He'll offer the Royals a nice pinch-hitting option versus lefties. Monday, 5:44 pm
  • Teams showing interest in Jonny Gomes
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that "a few teams" are showing interest in Jonny Gomes.

    Advice: Gomes could be a solid pinch-hitting option against lefties for a contending team down the stretch. He's hitting just .223/.327/.368 overall this season but has a .271/.375/.458 batting line since the All-Star break. Monday, 3:51 pm
  • Michael Taylor (knee) goes 2-for-4 in return
    Michael Taylor (knee) went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in his return to the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Taylor was held out for a couple games after bruising his right knee. The young outfielder is going to be an important player for the second-place Nationals down the stretch with Denard Span (hip) now ruled out for the remainder of the 2015 season. Taylor, 24, is batting .243/.292/.391 with 13 home runs and 15 stolen bases in 111 games this year at the major league level. Monday, 7:15 am
  • Kiermaier's homer the deciding factor vs. KC
    Kevin Kiermaier's solo home run was the deciding factor on Sunday as the Rays beat the Royals.

    Advice: Kiermaier broke a 2-2 tie in the sixth inning, slugging a solo home run to right field off of Luke Hochevar. He's put together a decent season, batting .261/.295/.420 with seven home runs, 31 RBI, 50 runs scored, and 16 stolen bases. He also leads the majors with 12 triples. Sunday, 1:29 pm
  • Michael Taylor (knee) returns to Nats' lineup
    Michael Taylor (knee) is back in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Taylor didn't start the last couple games due to a bruised right knee. He was able to pinch-hit Saturday, though, and is back in the lineup Sunday. Sunday, 7:54 am
  • Michael Taylor (knee) appears as pinch-hitter
    Michael Taylor (knee) grounded out as a pinch-hitter in Saturday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Taylor hasn't started the last two games due to a bruised right knee, but that he was able to pinch-hit is a good sign that he's close. He could be back in the lineup Sunday. Sunday, 5:24 am
  • Norris strikes out twice in hit-less effort
    Derek Norris went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: Norris is now hit-less in his last seven at-bats, with four strikeouts in that space. While he's set a career high with 13 home runs this season, and will have a career-high RBI number by season's end (he drove in 55 a year ago and currently sits at 54), his overall batting line is just .243/.286/.407. Saturday, 7:14 pm
  • Kiermaier cranks two-run homer
    Kevin Kiermaier went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a steal in Saturday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Kiermaier smacked a two-run homer off of Royals starter Kris Medlen in the fourth inning, his sixth homer of the season. He also recorded steal No. 16 in the contest. While he's hit well in April, June and August, his overall batting line is a pedestrian .261/.294/.413. Saturday, 6:40 pm
  • Michael Taylor (knee) remains sidelined
    Michael Taylor (knee) is not in the Nationals' starting lineup Saturday against the Marlins.

    Advice: He banged his right knee against the outfield wall in Thursday's win against San Diego. Denard Span's season-ending hip injury has opened up playing time for Taylor in center field. Bryce Harper will get the start there on Saturday. Saturday, 3:42 pm
  • Domingo Santana hits solo homer in win
    Domingo Santana went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: In addition to cracking his fifth home run of the year, Santana walked once and struck out once. The former Astro was part of the trade deadline deal that sent Carlos Gomez to Houston. In his first six games played with the Brewers, he's already homered three times. Those in need of some pop in deeper mixed leagues might want to take a flier. Friday, 10:41 pm
  • Michael Taylor (knee) to miss a few games
    Michael Taylor (knee) is expected to be sidelined for a few days.

    Advice: The feeling is that Taylor didn't cause any major damage when he collided with the outfield wall Thursday, but he has a bad bruise on his right knee. He could wind up missing the entire weekend series against the Marlins. Matt den Dekker should handle center field for a few days. Friday, 11:32 am
  • X-rays come back negative for Taylor
    Michael Taylor (knee) is listed as day-to-day after being diagnosed with a right knee contusion on Thursday.

    Advice: Taylor was pulled from Thursday's game in the seventh inning after crashing into the outfield wall. Thankfully, he was able to avoid any significant injuries and should be cleared to return to the Nationals lineup at some point over the weekend. Thursday, 7:31 pm
  • Michael Taylor leaves game after collision
    Michael Taylor was removed from Thursday's game against the Padres after crashing into the outfield wall.

    Advice: Taylor was attempting to track down a deep drive off the bat of Melvin Upton when he leaped and crashed into the outfield wall at full speed. The injury is believed to have occurred to his right knee, though the severity is unknown at the moment. The Nationals should have an update on his status after the game. Thursday, 7:07 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. Wednesday, 7:19 pm
  • Kiermaier nabs three hits, two steals vs. MIN
    Kevin Kiermaier went 3-for-5 with two stolen bases and an RBI in a loss to the Twins on Tuesday.

    Advice: Kiermaier had an RBI single in the third inning, one of three singles on the night. The 25-year-old has oscillated between good and bad months, batting .306 in April, .173 in May, .314 in June, .200 in July and now .310 this month through Tuesday's game. Kiermaier is hitting .255/.288/.400 with 47 runs scored, 28 RBI and 15 steals on the year. Tuesday, 8:37 pm
  • Rosario triples, homers in win over Rays
    Eddie Rosario went 2-for-5 with a triple and a home run in Tuesday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: The triple was Rosario's 10th of the season, second in the majors only to Kevin Kiermaier. He also has eight home runs after Tuesday's solo shot. The 23-year-old is having a quietly steady debut season, batting .276/.298/.454 in 89 games. Tuesday, 8:24 pm
  • Derek Norris (wrist) back in Tuesday's lineup
    Derek Norris (wrist) is back in Tuesday's lineup against the Nationals.

    Advice: Norris took a pitch off his wrist while catching during Saturday's game and sat out Sunday, but fortunately X-rays came back negative. He's batting seventh in his return to the lineup. Tuesday, 12:26 pm
  • Moore (ankle) to begin rehab stint Tuesday
    Tyler Moore (ankle) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A Potomac.

    Advice: Moore suffered a left ankle sprain last week, but he should be back in September. The 28-year-old is batting .200/.253/.347 with four home runs and 22 RBI over 162 plate appearances this season. Tuesday, 10:49 am
    4:05 pm vs Atl
