  • Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) will undergo MRI
    Eduardo Nunez is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his injured right hamstring.

    Advice: Nunez sustained the injury while sliding, forcing his early exit from Sunday's game against the Padres. The speedy infielder doesn't believe that it's serious though and remains hopeful that he'll be in the starting lineup on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:57 pm

  • Brandon McCarthy pitches well in no-decision
    Brandon McCarthy pitched well in a no-decision against the Rockies on Sunday, allowing two runs on four hits over his 5 1/3 innings.

    Advice: The veteran right-hander punched out six on the afternoon and walked just one. It was a nice return to the rotation for McCarthy, who was thrust into emergency duty when the club pushed Rich Hill's next start back. He could stick in the rotation to make another start next week, and would be worth a look as a streaming option in that case. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:19 pm
  • Ryon Healy leaves the yard again in victory
    Ryon Healy clobbered another home run on Sunday as the Athletics routed the Rangers 7-1 in Oakland.

    Advice: All of the damage came during a seven-run uprising in the second inning, which Healy capped off with a two-run homer to chase Colby Lewis from the game. He has really opened some eyes during his time with the big league club, slashing .303/.336/.519 with 12 homers and 33 RBI in 241 at-bats. He has likely played his way into a role as the club's starting third baseman heading into 2017. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:40 pm

  • Harper listed as day-to-day with sore thumb
    Bryce Harper is listed as day-to-day due to soreness in his left thumb.

    Advice: The Nationals don't believe that his injury is serious, but he'll head for precautionary X-rays on Monday to make sure. Harper sustained his injury during Sunday's game when he slid awkwardly into third base after Jung Ho Kang faked a tag. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:05 pm

  • Boyd fails to record out in loss to Royals
    Matt Boyd failed to record an out Sunday in the Tigers' loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Boyd gave up four runs on two singles, a double, a triple, and a homer in a nightmare of a first inning. This after he worked eight innings Tuesday against the Twins. The young lefty may have hit a wall here in late September. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:14 pm

  • Michael Pineda whiffs seven over solid 5 2/3
    Michael Pineda held the Blue Jays to one run over 5 2/3 innings while recording seven strikeouts in a no-decision Sunday.

    Advice: Pineda was inefficient as he often can be, but the only run he allowed on the day was a solo home run to Jose Bautista in the fourth inning. It was the big right-hander's fifth straight no-decision, and he hasn't picked up a victory since August 5. Pineda's final start of the season will come Friday against the Orioles. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:54 pm
  • Britton tallies his 46th save of the season
    Zach Britton tallied his 46th save of the season Sunday in the Orioles' defeat of the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Britton gave up a two-out single to Brandon Drury but induced a flyout from Kyle Jensen to preserve the O's 2-1 lead. The right-hander is 46-for-46 in save opportunities this season with a 0.56 ERA. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:26 pm
  • Josh Tomlin terrific but takes loss Sunday
    Josh Tomlin was dealt a tough-luck loss Sunday, yielding two runs -- one earned -- over 6 2/3 innings in a loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: He struck out just one on the day, but Tomlin was good in this one with just five hits allowed and no walks. However, unfortunately for Tomlin and the Indians, Carlos Rodon was dominant. Tomlin has been much better since re-entering the rotation, permitting just one earned run in each of his three outings. He'll conclude his regular season with a start versus the Royals.

  • Bryce Harper exits with apparent hand injury
    Bryce Harper departed Sunday's game against the Pirates with an apparent injury to his left hand.

    Advice: Harper slid awkwardly into third base in the top of the third inning after Jung Ho Kang faked a tag and appeared to hurt his hand. He stayed in and wound up scoring a run but was then removed before the bottom of the frame. The Nationals should provide an update on Harper shortly. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:58 am

  • Brandon Crawford (finger) returns to lineup
    Brandon Crawford (finger) is back in the Giants' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Crawford missed four games with a dislocated left pinkie, but he's ready to give it a go in this one. Crawford is at shortstop and batting seventh against Clayton Richard and the Padres. Brandon Belt and Angel Pagan are sitting out against the lefty, as the Giants have Buster Posey at first base and Gorkys Hernandez in center field. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:35 am
  • Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) to see Dr. Andrews
    Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) will visit with Dr. James Andrews on Monday.

    Advice: De La Rosa has tried to pitch through a sprained ulnar collateral ligament but is still feeling soreness and tightness in his elbow. He's already had one Tommy John surgery and it's possible he'll require another. De La Rosa is arbitration-eligible for a second time this winter. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:39 am

  • Jose Iglesias scratched from Tigers' lineup
    Jose Iglesias was a late scratch from the Tigers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Chris McCosky of the Detroit News says that Iglesias "was tore up pretty good" by the death of fellow Cuban Jose Fernandez and it appears that's the reason for him being scratched. Andrew Romine has replaced Iglesias at shortstop. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:40 am
  • Eric Hosmer sitting out on Sunday
    Eric Hosmer is not in the Royals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It looks to simply be a rare day off for the first baseman. Whit Merrifield is filling in for Hosmer. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:35 am
  • Max Kepler (neck) singles in return to action
    Max Kepler (neck) singled in one of his three plate appearances in his return to the lineup Saturday.

    Advice: Kepler was removed from Thursday's contest and sat out Friday with a mild neck strain. It doesn't appear it will be an issue for him moving forward. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:25 am

  • Jose Iglesias (hand) back in action Saturday
    Jose Iglesias (hand) singled and scored a run in five trips to the plate Saturday against the Royals.

    Advice: Iglesias had to be lifted from Friday's game after an errant throw from third base hit his right hand as he crossed first base. However, he didn't wind up needing any additional down time as it turned out. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:23 am
  • Asher earns win despite four unearned runs
    Alec Asher allowed four runs -- all unearned -- over five innings in a win over the Mets on Saturday.

    Advice: Two errors that contributed to a four-run fifth inning -- with the Phillies ahead 10-0 at that point -- marred Asher's final line, but he gave up just five hits without walking a batter in the victory. Asher has now allowed just four earned runs in four starts this year, posting a 1.66 ERA and 0.92 WHIP while going 2-0 in those starts. A rematch with the Mets on Friday looms in Asher's final start of 2016. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:03 pm
  • Gordon runs wild on Braves in Marlins victory
    Dee Gordon went 2-for-3 with three stolen bases and two runs scored in the Marlins' 6-4 win over the Braves on Saturday.

    Advice: Gordon had no fear for Braves catcher Anthony Recker, walking and stealing second base in the first inning, stealing third base in the third inning and stealing second again an inning later. The three steals give him 26 steals in 74 games this year. His .257/.298/.320 line leaves something to be desired, but the 28-year-old's speed is a fantasy difference-maker and with a full year to work with in 2017, he should once again be among the cream of the crop at second base.

  • Brandon Crawford to take BP on Saturday
    Brandon Crawford (finger) will try to take batting practice on Saturday.

    Advice: He's missed the Giants' last four games with a dislocated pinkie. If Saturday's BP session goes well, Crawford could return to the lineup as soon as Sunday. Ehire Adrianza will draw another start at shortstop Saturday against the Padres. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:36 pm
  • Rubby De La Rosa unlikely to return in 2016
    Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale conceded that Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) is unlikely to return this season.

    Advice: Momentum was building for a comeback in late September but De La Rosa simply ran out of time. Originally slated for Tommy John surgery after tearing his UCL, De La Rosa chose the rehab route instead. It looks like he'll be fine for spring training next season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:41 pm

  • Hosmer clubs three-run homer to beat Tigers
    Eric Hosmer dealt a blow to the Tigers playoff chances on Saturday, clubbing a three-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning, propelling the Royals to a 7-4 victory in Motown.

    Advice: The Royals entered the inning trailing 4-2 and were down to their final strike before Paulo Orlando came through with a two-run double to tie the game. That set the stage for Hosmer's heroic blast off of Tigers' closer Francisco Rodriguez. It was Hosmer's lone hit in five at-bats on the afternoon. He's been a terrific source of run production this season, slashing .268/.329/.434 with 24 homers and 100 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:34 pm
  • Dodgers activate Brandon McCarthy from DL
    Dodgers activated RHP Brandon McCarthy from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: McCarthy made it through a five-inning simulated game on Tuesday without any issues. It's unclear if he'll work out of the bullpen upon his return or if he'll have a shot to return to the starting rotation. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:14 am
  • Iglesias day-to-day with hand contusion
    Jose Iglesias has been diagnosed with a right hand contusion and is listed as day-to-day.

    Advice: The defensive wizard was hit in the hand by an errant throw while running the bases in Friday's victory over the Royals. It wouldn't be surprising to see Andrew Romine start in his place on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:51 pm
  • Jose Iglesias leaves game with hand injury
    Jose Iglesias was forced to leave Friday's game against the Royals after being hit on the hand by an errant throw.

    Advice: Iglesias got drilled on the right hand by a wild throw from Cheslor Cuthbert as he crossed first base. He remained in the game to run for himself, but was replaced by Andrew Romine defensively the next half inning. Expect the Tigers to provide an update on his status after the conclusion of Friday's game. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:42 pm
  • Brandon Crawford could return on Sunday
    Brandon Crawford (finger) could return to the Giants lineup on Sunday.

    Advice: He's expected to try taking some dry swings on Friday to see how his dislocated finger responds. The hard-hitting shortstop has been on the shelf since Tuesday when he sustained the injury while sliding. Ehire Adrianza should draw another start in his absence on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:49 pm
  • Brandon Crawford (finger) remains out Friday
    Brandon Crawford (finger) remains out of the Giants starting lineup on Friday.

    Advice: Crawford suffered a dislocated finger during Tuesday's game and hasn't been able to return since. Ehire Adrianza will once again start at shortstop and bat eighth for the Giants against Edwin Jackson and the Padres. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:42 pm
  • Max Kepler (neck) available off the bench
    Max Kepler (neck) is not in the Twins' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Kepler was lifted from Thursday's game with a mild neck strain. He did report improvement Friday and is available off the bench. Logan Schafer will cover right field Friday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:02 pm

  • Kepler leaves game with mild neck strain
    Max Kepler was removed from Thursday's contest with a mild neck strain.

    Advice: He sustained the injury when he was crunched into a wall in foul territory by teammate Kennys Vargas while chasing down a fly ball. He should be considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:58 pm

  • Crawford (finger) remains out of lineup
    Brandon Crawford (finger) remains out of the Giants starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Padres.

    Advice: Crawford suffered a dislocated pinkie finger while sliding into third base during Tuesday's game. He's still considered day-to-day. Ehire Adrianza is getting another start in his place at shortstop and will bat seventh against Christian Friedrich and the Padres. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:46 pm
  • GM Rizzo called meeting on Harper's shoulder
    Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports Nationals GM Mike Rizzo held a closed-door meeting with Bryce Harper, trainer Paul Lessard, and manager Dusty Baker to discuss Harper's right shoulder.

    Advice: This impromptu discussion came soon after the second report from SI.com's Tom Verducci, in which Verducci again stated that Harper is playing through serious neck and shoulder discomfort. That story featured many intimate details, including a quote from one source stating that Harper "could barely throw the ball 40 feet" at one point this summer. "Bryce said it didn’t come from him," Baker told the Washington Post on Wednesday. "Nobody really knows where it comes from because it’s not on the injury report. The trainer said no." Whatever the case, the proof is in the pudding that Harper isn't anywhere close to 100 percent. The reigning National League MVP is batting just .172 in September and .223 since the beginning of July. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:36 am

  • Crawford (finger) not in lineup against LAD
    Brandon Crawford (finger) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Crawford dislocated his left pinkie finger while sliding into third in Tuesday's win over the Dodgers. His injured digit was subsequently placed in a splint and he is considered day-to-day. Ehire Adrianza earns the start at shortstop in his place on Wednesday, batting eighth. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:39 pm
  • Giants list Crawford (finger) as day-to-day
    Brandon Crawford is considered day-to-day following negative X-rays on his dislocated left pinkie finger.

    Advice: Crawford suffered the injury to his glove hand on a slide into third base Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium and Giants manager Bruce Bochy said after the game that he expects to see some Ehire Adrianza at shortstop over the next couple of days. Joe Panik missed exactly three games last year with a similar injury. It looks like the Giants may have dodged a bullet with this one, though any kind of absence is a big deal with only 11 games remaining on the regular-season schedule. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:25 pm
  • Eduardo Nunez styles solo home run in victory
    Eduardo Nunez went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Dodgers.

    Advice: In what was a tightly pitched contest throughout, Nunez's solo home run off Rich Hill in the fifth inning snapped a scoreless tie. Since coming over to the Giants via a July trade, the 29-year-old infielder owns a .273/.335/.442 triple-slash with four homers and 19 RBI over 163 at-bats. He has picked up at least one hit in nine of his last 10 games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:13 pm

  • Boyd delivers eight strong in win over Twins
    Matt Boyd allowed a run on three hits over eight stout innings in the Tigers' 8-1 win over the Twins on Tuesday.

    Advice: A Robbie Grossman solo homer in the seventh inning was the only damage Boyd allowed on the evening. The lefty was otherwise stellar, walking just one while striking out seven over his eight innings of work. It was a nice showing after he lasted just 3 2/3 innings his last time out. Boyd is now 6-4 with a 4.16 ERA in 97 1/3 innings on the year. He'll look to keep rolling Sunday against the Royals. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:17 pm

  • Brandon Crawford has a dislocated left pinkie
    Brandon Crawford has been diagnosed with a dislocated left pinkie finger.

    Advice: Crawford suffered the injury on a second-inning slide into third base Tuesday night against the Dodgers. It's on his glove hand, so that helps, but both hands are bat hands and Crawford figures to miss at least a handful of games. He's one of the best all-around players on the Wild Card-hunting Giants, who have fallen fast into a three-way battle with the Mets and Cardinals. Ehire Adrianza took over at shortstop on Tuesday versus Los Angeles. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:16 pm
  • Michael Pineda strikes out 11 in no-decision
    Michael Pineda lasted just 5 1/3 innings but recorded 11 strikeouts in a no-decision Tuesday as the Yankees downed the Rays 5-3.

    Advice: He needed 98 pitches to get through his 5 1/3 frames, but that can happen when you pile up 11 punchouts. Pineda surrendered a two-run triple to Brad Miller in the third inning but held the Rays off the scoreboard otherwise and was let off the hook when the Yanks rallied for four runs in the seventh inning. He'll take on the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:45 pm
  • Brandon Crawford pulled with apparent injury
    Brandon Crawford was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Dodgers with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Crawford looked to jam his hand or wrist on a hard slide into third base in the top of the second inning. He was thrown out from left field by Andrew Toles on a play that ended that second frame. There should be an update on Crawford within the next hour or so. This could be a crusher for San Francisco. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:33 pm
  • Josh Tomlin holds Royals in check Tuesday
    Josh Tomlin limited the Royals to just one run across 6 2/3 innings but settled for a no-decision in a 2-1 victory.

    Advice: He matched zeroes with Edinson Volquez for much of the night, as it was 1-1 headed into the ninth when Brandon Guyer ended it with a walk-off RBI double. Tomlin has pitched well in each of his two starts since rejoining the Tribe's rotation, yielding just two runs over 11 2/3 innings. He'll try to keep it going against the White Sox on Sunday.

  • McCarthy (hip) throws simulated game
    Brandon McCarthy (hip) threw a five-inning simulated game on Tuesday afternoon.

    Advice: It lasted about 75 pitches. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he'll wait until Wednesday to see how McCarthy feels before revealing the next course of action for the rehabbing right-hander. McCarthy struggled badly with his control in August before landing back on the disabled list with a hip injury. He's been limited to eight MLB starts in 2016, largely due to his recovery from Tommy John elbow surgery. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:46 pm
  • Baker refutes story on Harper's neck/shoulder
    Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Tuesday that Tom Verducci's SI.com report suggesting that Bryce Harper has continued to play through neck and shoulder discomfort is "inaccurate."

    Advice: "I don't know where he's getting that from," said Dusty. This feels like deja vu, as Baker and Nationals GM Mike Rizzo also had to refute a similar story from Verducci back in early August. Harper is toting a .180 batting average in September and doesn't look anywhere close to 100 percent, but he is starting in right field and batting third for the Nats on Tuesday night against Marlins ace Jose Fernandez. The defending NL MVP refused to address the Verducci report (linked in a previous blurb) when probed about it on Tuesday afternoon. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:14 pm

    Bryce Harper (shoulder, neck) is back in the Nationals' lineup on Tuesday.

    Advice: Harper was given the night off Monday and Tom Verducci of Sports Illustrated reported Tuesday afternoon that the 2015 NL MVP is still struggling through shoulder and neck discomfort. But it's something Harper is going to continue to try to play through. He will start in right field and bat third Tuesday versus Marlins ace Jose Fernandez. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:09 pm

  • Harper still dealing with shoulder discomfort
    Tom Verducci of SI.com hears that Bryce Harper continues to play through discomfort in his right shoulder/neck.

    Advice: The Nationals previously denied a report on Harper's shoulder back in August, but manager Dusty Baker told Verducci last weekend that "the shoulder thing" has indeed bothered him. In fact, one source close to Harper told Verducci that at one point, the defending NL MVP "could barely throw the ball 40 feet." Verducci also relays a tidbit about Baker asking Harper why he played curiously shallow in right field over the weekend. After showing a bit of a resurgence at the plate last month, Harper is batting just .180 with three extra-base hits (including one homer) and a .613 OPS in 63 plate appearances this month.

  • McCarthy to throw sim. game on Tuesday
    Brandon McCarthy (elbow) will throw 75 pitches in a simulated game on Tuesday.

    Advice: McCarthy struggled with his control in a three-start stretch with the Dodgers in August before landing on the DL with hip soreness. He was hit hard in a minor league rehab start from there, but there were positive reports coming out of a simulated game last week. The Dodgers haven't ruled him out from returning, but it's unclear what role he could have down the stretch or doing the postseason. Rotoworld.com Sep 19, 5:39 pm
  • Nunez hitting leadoff, Bumgarner eighth Mon.
    Eduardo Nunez will hit leadoff Monday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Giants manager Bruce Bochy is shaking things up a bit against Clayton Kershaw. Gorkys Hernandez will start in center field and hit fifth while Madison Bumgarner will move into the No. 8 spot. Kelby Tomlinson will start at second base and bat ninth while Joe Panik is on the bench. Rotoworld.com Sep 19, 3:14 pm

  • Hosmer knocks in two runs vs. White Sox
    Eric Hosmer went 2-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored against the White Sox on Monday.

    Advice: Hosmer had RBI singles in the fifth and sixth innings. He has improved his career-best RBI total to 97 for the year. The batting average has dropped off this season (.272 after Monday’s game), but he has made up with his increased run production for fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com Sep 19, 2:20 pm

    Bryce Harper is getting the night off Monday.

    Advice: Chris Heisey will start in right field and bat sixth versus Marlins left-hander Wei-Yin Chen. Harper figures to get a few more days of rest over the next two weeks as Washington wraps up the National League East title. Rotoworld.com Sep 19, 12:23 pm

    Zach Britton nailed down his 45th save of the season on Sunday against the Rays.

    Advice: Britton yielded a leadoff single to Steven Souza in the top of the ninth, but he retired the next three batters he faced to stay perfect on the year. He is 45-for-45 in save opportunities with a 0.59 ERA. You can bet he's going to get some Cy Young votes. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 1:42 pm

    Max Kepler is not in the Twins' lineup Sunday.

  • Rubby De La Rosa might not be shut down
    Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Saturday that Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) might pitch again this season after all.

    Advice: The D'Backs announced Thursday that De La Rosa would be shut down, but Hale reversed course Saturday, saying the righty could pitch again if he shows improved command in bullpen sessions and in a simulated game. De La Rosa missed 3 1/2 months due to a sprained UCL and looked off in two appearances this month, but the club thinks his issues are more mental than physical. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 6:47 am

    Eduardo Nunez went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in a loss to the Cardinals on Saturday.

    Advice: He scored a go-ahead run on a sacrifice fly by pitcher Jeff Samardzija in the fifth inning but that lead would get blown in the ninth. He recently missed a few games with a sore oblique. He is batting .286/.326/.435 with 15 homers, 65 RBI and 36 stolen bases split between the Twins and Giants. Rotoworld.com Sep 17, 9:19 pm

    Dee Gordon went 3-for-6 with two steals and a run scored in Friday’s extra-inning loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: Gordon found himself in a deep slump after returning from his PED suspension, but he’s finally starting to heat up at the plate. He has hit safely in each of his last eight games and has multi-hit games in three out of his last four. After stealing just four bases in a 29-game span from August 13-September 13, he has swiped five bases over his last two games. Rotoworld.com Sep 16, 9:17 pm

  • Rubby De La Rosa being shut down for year
    Due to lingering health concerns, Rubby De La Rosa will not pitch again this season.

    Advice: De La Rosa was just activated from the 60-day disabled list on September 9. He had previously been sidelined by a sprained UCL in his right elbow. While he did make two appearances after being activated, manager Chip Hale did not like what he saw in those outings and the Diamondbacks have decided it would be best not to risk further injury. De La Rosa will continue to throw, but his 2016 season has been put to rest. He finished the abbreviated campaign holding a 4.26 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 54/20 K/BB ratio over 50 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Healy demolished an Edinson Volquez offering in the third inning, parking it in the upper deck 472 feet away. The homer was his 10th in 56 games this year, and he's hit four in his last eight games. The 24-year-old has had an impressive debut, batting .309/.344/.525 overall. Rotoworld.com Sep 15, 8:04 pm

    Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said the team will reevaluate Rubby De La Rosa's health.

    Advice: De La Rosa was lifted after throwing 45 pitches over one-plus innings Wednesday night against the Rockies. He's trying to work through a sprained UCL in his right elbow without going under the knife. "We’re going to look at his health," said Hale. "He didn’t seem to have the same kind of stuff coming out.

    Rubby De La Rosa was taken out after allowing one run in one-plus innings Wednesday in his start against the Rockies.

    Advice: The Diamondbacks probably shouldn't have brought De La Rosa back at all, but they wanted to see if he could work his way back from his sprained UCL without surgery. The plan was for him to throw another two or three innings tonight (he threw two in his first start back from the DL last week), but with his pitch count up to 45 with no outs in the second, he had to be lifted.
