  • Martinez tosses quality start vs Diamondbacks
    Carlos Martinez posted a quality start in Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks, yielding three runs on four hits over six innings.

    Advice: While Martinez wasn't getting rocked--all three runs scored in the second inning, on a pair of RBI singles--he had already thrown 103 pitches by the close of the sixth. These kinds of fine-but-unspectacular outings have slowly become the norm for the 23-year-old right-hander, who has now allowed at least three runs in each of his last six starts. He owns a 2.91 ERA and 1.27 WHIP, numbers he'll take into a home start against the Nationals in his next scheduled outing. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:07 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.

  • Hudson exits game with cut finger
    Daniel Hudson exited Thursday's contest against the Cardinals after cutting his finger on a grounder.

    Advice: Hudson came on in the top of the ninth inning, but he cut his finger on a Tommy Phan grounder to lead off the frame and had to be removed from the game for Brad Ziegler. The team should provide an update on his status after the game. For now, the reliever should be considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:55 pm
  • Carlos Rodon earns win over Mariners
    Carlos Rodon pitched six innings of two-run ball Thursday in the White Sox's 4-2 win over the Mariners.

    Advice: Rodon overcame his embarrassment at wearing maybe the silliest uniform in baseball history and turned in his fourth straight quality start. Those who dropped him last month have to be disappointed by the turnaround, but it's still quite possible that he'll succumb to fatigue down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:30 pm
  • Roenis Elias loses in return
    Roenis Elias lost to the White Sox in his return to the rotation, allowing four runs -- three earned -- in 6 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Elias should be a solid enough starter for the Mariners the rest of the way, but with the rest of the team treading water, he wouldn't seem to have any mixed-league value at all. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:28 pm
  • Elvis Araujo leaves with strained groin
    Elvis Araujo was forced to leave Thursday's contest against the Mets with a strained left groin.

    Advice: The left-hander faced just one batter, to whom he issued a walk, before the injury struck. The severity of the injury isn't yet known, but a trip to the disabled list could be in the cards. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:24 pm
  • Drew Smyly struggles threw 4 1/3 innings
    Drew Smyly yielded four runs -- three earned -- in 4 1/3 innings Thursday in a no-decision against the Twins.

    Advice: Smyly got into trouble every inning tonight, and the damage could have been more severe if Brandon Gomes hadn't induced an inning-ending double play from Torii Hunter immediately after taking over in the fifth. The subpar outing leaves him with a 5.14 ERA in three starts since he came off the DL. He's not a mixed-league option in a road start against the Orioles next time out. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:16 pm
  • Brad Boxberger records 31st save
    Brad Boxberger struck out the side in the ninth for his 31st save Thursday against the Twins.

    Advice: Boxberger had given up a run in three straight appearances dating back to Aug. 18. He was perfect on this one, though, using 14 pitches to fan three batters. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:13 pm
  • Gerrit Cole records 15th victory
    Gerrit Cole notched his 15th win after limiting the Marlins to one run in 7 1/3 innings on Thursday.

    Advice: Cole had been stuck on 14 wins since July 26, though that was as much due to a lack of run support than any problems he was having. Because of the drought he's been overtaken by Madison Bumgarner and Jake Arrieta for the league lead in victories. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:54 pm
  • Justin Nicolino gives up two runs, loses
    Justin Nicolino lost after allowing two runs in six innings Thursday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Nicolino kept the Marlins in the game, but he finished the night with six hits allowed, four walks and just one strikeout. Of course, he's never going to be a strikeout guy at all, but because of that, he can't afford those walks. Nicolino is 2-2 with a 3.65 ERA in his six starts for the Marlins. He has a favorable matchup against the Braves coming up next. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:52 pm
  • Perkins expected to be available on Friday
    Paul Molitor is very optimistic that Glen Perkins (back) will be available on Friday.

    Advice: The southpaw was unavailable on Wednesday and Thursday due to lower back spasms, but is expected to be ready enough to pitch on Friday. Kevin Jepsen has been filling in as the closer in his absence. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:21 pm
  • Adam Ottavino throws from flat ground
    Adam Ottavino (elbow) began throwing from flat ground on Thursday.

    Advice: It's the first time the right-hander has been able to throw since undergoing Tommy John surgery in May. He won't be ready to rejoin the Rockies bullpen until midway through the 2016 season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:55 pm
    60-Day DL

  • Cubs acquire Fernando Rodney from M's
    Cubs acquired RHP Fernando Rodney from the Mariners for a player to be named later.

    Advice: Rodney will join the bullpen on Friday. He'll help provide depth in the late innings for the Cubs with Jason Motte on the disabled list. The 38-year-old hurler posted a troublesome 5.68 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over 50 2/3 innings with the Mariners. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:07 pm
  • Orioles option Jorge Rondon back to Triple-A
    Orioles optioned RHP Jorge Rondon to Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: Rondon continues to shuffle back and forth any time the team needs a fresh arm in the bullpen. He'll assuredly be back as depth once rosters expand in September. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:03 pm

  • Chris Tillman struggles in loss to Royals
    Chris Tillman struggled in Thursday's loss to the Royals, surrendering four runs on nine hits over his six frames.

    Advice: Tillman walked one while striking out one on the afternoon. After three scoreless innings to begin the ballgame, the Royals scratched out runs in each of the next three frames, including a solo homer by Pablo Orlando. While he has been much better in the second half of the season, Tillman will still carry a troublesome 4.58 ERA and 1.33 WHIP into Tuesday's matchup against the Rays. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:13 pm
  • Bumgarner racks up 12 strikeouts in victory
    Madison Bumgarner delivered another dazzling performance in Thursday's victory over the Cubs, racking up 12 strikeouts over six innings of one-run ball.

    Advice: The All-Star southpaw allowed just two hits and a pair of walks on the afternoon. He is in the midst of another brilliant season, compiling a 2.97 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 192/30 K/BB ratio over 175 2/3 innings. He'll head in search of his 17th victory when he does battle against the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:08 pm
  • Estrada strikes out six over six innings
    Marco Estrada pitched effectively in Thursday's loss to the Rangers, yielding one run on four hits over six innings.

    Advice: Estrada struck out six and walked three while scattering four hits over his six innings of work. Mitch Moreland burned him for an RBI single in the first for the only run he allowed in the game. The right-hander has pitched to a 3.19 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 101/43 K/BB ratio over 129 2/3 innings. Up next on his schedule, a home start against the Indians. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:50 pm
  • Perkins (back) will be gametime decision Thu.
    Twins manager Paul Molitor said that Glen Perkins (back) will be a game-time decision Thursday.

    Advice: Perkins was unavailable for Wednesday's game due to lower back spasms and he's no sure thing to pitch Thursday, either. Molitor wants to stay away from using Kevin Jepsen on Thursday, so things could get interesting if Perkins is also unavailable. Casey Fien or Trevor May would be the most likely options in a save situation. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:39 pm
  • Braves release veteran righty Jason Frasor
    Braves released RHP Jason Frasor.

    Advice: Frasor strained his shoulder earlier this month and won't pitch again in 2015. The veteran right-hander looked good in his short stay with the Braves and should have offers on the table this winter if he wants to continue his playing career. Frasor will finish the season with a 1.29 ERA in 28 total innings between Atlanta and Kansas City. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:03 pm

  • Mo tells Waino to pump brakes on return talk
    According to Jim Hayes of CBS Sports 920 in St. Louis, general manager John Mozeliak told Adam Wainwright (heel) to "pump the brakes" on his public predictions that he will be able to return this year.

    Advice: Wainwright has maintained the entire summer that he is working to rejoin the Cardinals before the end of the season, but the rehab for a ruptured Achilles tendon -- which Waino suffered in late April -- typically takes 10-12 months. It's a nice carrot for Wainwright to dangle in front of himself through a tedious recovery process, but the 33-year-old right-hander can be safely ruled out until 2016. St. Louis pitchers boast an MLB-best 2.65 combined ERA so far in 2015. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:38 am
    60-Day DL
     
  • Rangers recall Nick Martinez from Triple-A
    Rangers recalled RHP Nick Martinez from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Martinez has a rough 4.09 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, and 73/44 K/BB ratio in 121 innings this year for Texas. He will pitch in relief in his return to the Rangers' active roster. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:46 am
  • Rangers option Spencer Patton to Triple-A
    Rangers optioned RHP Spencer Patton to Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Patton was lit up for five earned runs without recording an out on Wednesday against the Blue Jays. He has a 9.00 ERA in 24 innings this season with the Rangers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:43 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
  • Hendricks coughs up four runs vs Giants
    Kyle Hendricks couldn't quite manage a quality start in Wednesday's loss to the Giants, surrendering four runs on five hits over six innings.

    Advice: Hendricks struck out six and walked three on the evening, with the Giants managing a pair of runs in the first inning and another pair in the sixth. None of his season-long numbers are spectacular, but he's been consistently decent to the tune of a 4.11 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 124/34 K/BB ratio over 142 1/3 innings. A home showdown with the Reds shows next on his schedule. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:07 pm
  • Lackey fires seven innings of one-run ball
    John Lackey improved to 11-8 with Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Diamondbacks, hurling seven innings of one-run ball.

    Advice: Lackey scattered seven hits while striking out four against one walk. Paul Goldschmidt burned him for a solo home run in the first inning, but Lackey settled in after that and tossed goose eggs up over the next six frames. This performance was just same old, same old for the veteran right-hander, who has allowed more than three runs just once in his last 13 starts. For the season, he's the owner of a 2.92 ERA and 1.20 WHIP across 166 2/3 innings. He'll tango with the Nationals next time he takes the ball. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:31 pm
  • Corbin limits Cards to one run in six innings
    Patrick Corbin pitched well in a Wednesday no-decision against the Cardinals, allowing one run on three hits over six innings.

    Advice: Corbin struck out seven and walked two on the evening, with a fifth-inning solo homer by Mark Reynolds representing the only run to score during the 26-year-old's time on the mound. Since returning from Tommy John surgery on July 5, he's pitched to a 3.78 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 50 innings, covering 10 starts. So long as he's giving the Diamondbacks innings, he'll continue to hold some value in mixed leagues. A road trip to Coors for a date with the Rockies crops up next on Corbin's schedule. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:27 pm
  • Perkins unavailable due to lower back spasms
    Glen Perkins was unavailable for Wednesday's game due to lower back spasms.

    Advice: The good news is that his neck injury wasn't the reason Perkins was passed over for the save chance. That honor went to Kevin Jepsen, who closed out the Rays with little issue. Perkins should be fine moving forward, but Jepsen remains a necessary handcuff until Perkins is clear of all his ailments. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:59 pm
  • Roenis Elias to start on Thursday
    Roenis Elias will start on Thursday against the White Sox.

    Advice: He's taking the rotation spot of Vidal Nuno, who is moving back to the Mariners' bullpen. Elias holds a 4.22 ERA over 14 appearances -- 13 starts -- for the M's this season. He's worth using in AL-only formats. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:30 am
  • Orioles recall Jorge Rondon from Triple-A
    Orioles recalled RHP Jorge Rondon from Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: Rondon has surrendered 11 runs -- 10 earned -- in 4 1/3 innings this season for the O's. The 27-year-old right-hander will primarily pitch in low-leverage situations. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:20 pm

  • Perkins picks up victory in return to action
    Glen Perkins (neck) returned to action on Sunday, working a scoreless inning against the Orioles to earn his second win of the season.

    Advice: Perkins wasn't supposed to be available until Tuesday, but was called upon in the 11th inning of a tied game on Sunday. He did show a bit of rust, allowing a pair of hits in his lone frame, but was able to bear down and avoid any damage. He should resume his normal role as the Twins closer beginning on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:08 pm
  • Jorge Rondon to join O's bullpen on Monday
    Jorge Rondon will be recalled from Triple-A Norfolk to join the Orioles bullpen on Monday.

    Advice: Rondon has appeared in just one game with the O's this season, hurling 3 1/3 shutout innings against the Tigers. He'll function in middle relief upon his recall. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:23 pm

  • Rays 'will look into' Fernando Rodney
    Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Rays "will look into" Fernando Rodney.

    Advice: However, he notes that Rodney "is not a high priority." The reliever was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Saturday after posting a 5.68 ERA over 54 appearances. He had two good years in Tampa, so perhaps they could help fix him. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:30 pm
  • Glen Perkins (neck) feels 'great' off mound
    Twins manager Paul Molitor said that Glen Perkins (neck) "felt great" during a bullpen session Sunday.

    Advice: Perkins received two cortisone shots last Wednesday to treat a bulging disk in his neck. The left-hander will be available as the Twins' closer again starting on Tuesday following Monday's off day. Kevin Jepsen will return to a setup role at that time. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:45 am
  • Perkins (neck) likely to be available Tuesday
    Glen Perkins (neck) felt "great" while playing catch Saturday and is expected to be available to pitch on Tuesday.

    Advice: Perkins will is expected to test things out with a bullpen session on Sunday and could possibly talk his way into being available if a save situation comes up. However, the Twins most likely will wait until after Monday's off day. Perkins received two cortisone shots on Wednesday to treat a bulging disk in his neck. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:56 am
  • Roenis Elias recalled from Triple-A
    Mariners recalled LHP Roenis Elias from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Elias is getting another chance despite a 7.34 ERA at Tacoma. He'll work in long relief. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:45 am
  • Carlos Rodon solid for seven innings
    Carlos Rodon yielded three runs -- one earned -- over seven innings against the Mariners on Saturday.

    Advice: A Carlos Sanchez error opened the door for a three-run sixth inning that could have been quite a bit worse if Rodon didn't induce a double-play ball from Jesus Montero with two runs already in. Rodon threw 116 pitches in this one, which could be considered a few too many with the White Sox not going anywhere this year. He really seems to have hit his stride these last three starts, but one wonders if fatigue will become a factor down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:10 pm
  • Mariners cut veteran reliever Fernando Rodney
    Mariners designated RHP Fernando Rodney for assignment.

    Advice: Rodney racked up 48 saves last season alongside a 2.85 ERA, but he's fallen off in a major way in 2015 -- his age-38 campaign. The right-hander is making a $7 million salary this year, so he'll almost certainly pass through waivers unclaimed. Rodney is now off the Mariners' 40-man roster. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:09 pm
  • Tillman saddled with loss in quality start
    Chris Tillman pitched well in Saturday's loss to the Twins, allowing three runs on four hits over 6 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Tillman struck out six, walked two and allowed a singular run in the sixth, plus two more in the seventh. He holds a 4.51 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 91/47 K/BB ratio across 136 2/3 innings this season, but has allowed more than three runs just twice in his last 10 starts. Tillman's next scheduled outing is a road toughie against the Royals. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:43 pm
  • Carlos Martinez allows three runs in loss
    Carlos Martinez allowed three earned runs over 6 1/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Padres.

    Advice: And the wheels really came off after he left the game, with the Padres pouring in eight total runs on 12 total hits. Martinez gave up seven of those hits and walked one. He struck out six. Up next for the 23-year-old right-hander is another road start in Arizona. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:08 pm
  • Nicolino pitches into eighth vs Phillies
    Justin Nicolino was stuck with a no-decision in Saturday's contest with the Phillies, allowing two runs on five hits over 7 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Nicolino held a 2-0 lead heading into the eighth inning, but the Phillies rallied for a pair of runs in the frame to saddle the Marlins' starter with a no-decision. For the game, he struck out four and walked one. Through five major league starts, the 23-year-old southpaw is the owner of a serviceable 3.77 ERA and 1.19 WHIP. A home start against the Pirates is upcoming on his schedule. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:15 pm
  • Cole goes seven strong as Pirates beat Giants
    Gerrit Cole delivered seven innings of one-run ball Saturday in the Pirates' defeat of the Giants.

    Advice: Cole surrendered only three hits and struck out eight, and the one run he allowed was unearned. The ace right-hander was stuck with a no-decision however because the Bucs didn't take the lead for good until the bottom of the ninth inning when Starling Marte hit a walkoff homer. Cole stands 14-7 with a 2.49 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 162/38 K/BB ratio in 162 1/3 innings. He'll face the Marlins in Miami next. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:58 pm
  • Drew Smyly goes 5 2/3 scoreless in win
    Drew Smyly scattered seven hits over 5 2/3 scoreless innings to beat the A's Friday for his first win of the season.

    Advice: All seven hits were singles, and he didn't walk anyone. He did load the bases before coming out in the sixth, but Brandon Gomes was able to escape the jam. Smyly will get the Twins at home next time out, making him a decent play in mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:19 pm
  • Brad Boxberger gets a shaky save
    Brad Boxberger escaped with a save after giving up a run and three hits in the ninth Friday against the Rays.

    Advice: Fortunately, the Rays upped their lead from one run to two in the top of the ninth. It's the third straight outing in which Boxberger has allowed a run, and while his 3.31 ERA is still decent enough, his WHIP stands at 1.45. He's probably safe as the closer anyway, especially with Jake McGee out for at least a few weeks. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:16 pm
  • De La Rosa gives up two runs in win
    Rubby De La Rosa held the Reds to two runs over seven innings in a 6-3 win on Friday.

    Advice: De La Rosa scattered seven hits while walking one and striking out six. He now holds a 2.54 ERA in seven starts since the All-Star break and has gone a perfect 5-0 along the way. He's still widely available in most fantasy leagues, but it's about time that changes. He'll try to keep the good vibes going when he faces the Cardinals next week at home. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:36 pm
  • Bumgarner does it all in victory over Pirates
    Madison Bumgarner delivered another strong performance in Friday's victory over the Pirates, allowing three runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings.

    Advice: The All-Star southpaw racked up six strikeouts on the night while walking one. He also had his hitting prowess on display again on Friday, swatting a two-run homer off Jeff Locke in the second inning, his fifth of the season. Now 15-6 on the year, he'll carry a 3.02 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 180/28 K/BB ratio into Thursday's matchup against the Cubs. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:07 pm
  • Kyle Hendricks fans seven in no-decision
    Kyle Hendricks racked up seven strikeouts over five frames in a no-decision against the Braves on Friday.

    Advice: Hendricks allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk on the afternoon. The bulk of the damage came on a two-run single by Nick Markakis in the fourth inning. He has done a nice job for the Cubs this season, posting a 4.03 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 118/31 K/BB ratio over 136 1/3 innings. He'll look to get back in the win column on Thursday when he does battle against the Giants in San Francisco. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:16 pm
  • Patrick Corbin departs after two innings
    Patrick Corbin lasted just two innings and gave up four runs and eight hits Thursday versus the Reds.

    Advice: This comes 16 days after he pitched just 1 1/3 innings and gave up three runs against the Nationals. However, he's been pretty excellent otherwise since making his return from Tommy John surgery. The Diamondbacks will likely tread carefully with him down the stretch; they have to walk a fine line between not taking chances with him and trying to build him up for next year. If he starts getting pulled earlier, what little mixed-league value he might have will vanish. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:18 pm
  • Jake Peavy allows four runs in defeat
    Jake Peavy gave up four runs over six innings Thursday in a loss to the Pirates.

    Advice: Neil Walker's two-run homer in the sixth inning pretty much ended the game tonight. Two shaky starts in a row have taken Peavy's ERA from 3.75 to 4.35. His rotation spot shouldn't be in any jeopardy, but he's not looking like a mixed-league starter at the moment. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:35 pm
  • Perkins (neck) hopes to return by Tuesday
    Glen Perkins (neck) hopes to return by Tuesday at the latest.

    Advice: Perkins received an injection Wednesday for a neck issue which has bothered him since late June. He's already feeling much better and hopes to play catch on Thursday or Friday. Barring a setback, it looks like Kevin Jepsen will only be a temporary fill-in. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:09 pm
  • Brad Boxberger blows fourth save
    Brad Boxberger took his fourth blown save after giving up a run in the ninth Wednesday against the Astros.

    Advice: Boxberger has taken a blown save or a loss in four of his last six appearances, though he's not really getting lit up; his ERA has merely climbed from 2.89 to 3.19 during the stretch. Especially now that Jake McGee is banged up, it doesn't appear likely that Boxberger will lose save chances. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:27 pm
  • Perkins given injection for neck discomfort
    Glen Perkins got an injection Wednesday for his sore neck.

    Advice: Perkins will rejoin the Twins in Baltimore on Thursday, though he's going to be out for at least three more days. The lefty closer has been bothered by neck issues for over a year, but an MRI taken Wednesday apparently ruled out any major structural damage. Kevin Jepsen could vulture some saves over the next week or so. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:25 pm
  • Perkins (neck) on track for Baltimore for now
    Glen Perkins (neck) is tentatively scheduled to rejoin the Twins in Baltimore this weekend.

    Advice: It doesn't mean a whole lot yet, as the results of the MRI on his neck aren't known yet. Perkins has been given a cortisone injection and at the very least will miss a game or two. Kevin Jepsen will close for the Twins in the meantime. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:18 am
  • Glen Perkins set to undergo MRI on neck
    Glen Perkins will fly back to Minneapolis to undergo an MRI on his neck.

    Advice: Perkins had to be shut down last September with a neck issue and it's cropped up again. A stint on the disabled list is certainly possible, but we'll just have to wait and see what the MRI says. He will receive a cortisone injection regardless of what the test reveals. Kevin Jepsen should handle save chances while Perkins is sidelined. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:49 pm
  • Rodon goes the distance, but loses to Angels
    Carlos Rodon pitched a complete game, giving up two runs in eight innings, but took a loss on Monday to the Angels.

    Advice: Both runs scored on solo home runs. Albert Pujols went yard in the second, and C.J. Cron broke a 1-1 tie in the seventh with a blast to right-center. They were two of only four hits Rodon allowed along with three walks and five strikeouts. Though the rookie has been inconsistent, outings like Monday's are why the White Sox took him third overall in the 2014 draft. Rodon will bring a 4.42 ERA, a 1.55 WHIP, and a 106/54 K/BB ratio over 99 2/3 innings into a weekend start in Seattle against the Mariners. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:47 pm
