  • Adonis Garcia homers twice on Sunday
    Adonis Garcia launched a pair of solo home runs in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Garcia deposited a hanging John Lackey curveball into the left-field seats in the fourth inning and then smacked a hanging changeup from Tyler Lyons into the same seats in the sixth. While he's managed just a .294 on-base percentage with the Braves, Garcia has banged out 10 homers in 187 at-bats. Today, 12:30 pm

  • Yan Gomes not in Sunday's lineup
    Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's getting some rest on the last day of the season. Roberto Perez will handle the catching duties. Today, 9:45 am
  • Uribe (chest) still can't do activities
    Juan Uribe (chest) remains unable to do physical activities.

    Advice: Uribe is still dealing with a deep chest bruise that he suffered while diving for a ball on September 20. He's a long shot for the NLDS roster and is a question mark for any subsequent series should the Mets advance. Today, 9:23 am

  • Spencer Patton recalled from Triple-A
    Rangers recalled RHP Spencer Patton from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: The Rangers are desperate for some bullpen help as they try to wrap up the American League West. Patton holds a 9.00 ERA in 24 innings this season with the big club. Today, 9:14 am
  • Melky Cabrera not in Sunday's lineup
    Melky Cabrera is absent from the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's simply receiving a day of rest. J.B. Shuck is in left field in Cabrera's place. Today, 9:07 am
  • Joe Mauer sitting out on Sunday
    Joe Mauer is not in the Twins' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's getting a day of rest. Kennys Vargas is covering first base. Today, 8:26 am
  • Eddie Rosario not in Sunday's lineup
    Eddie Rosario is absent from the Twins' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's simply receiving a day off. Shane Robinson is playing left field. Today, 8:24 am
  • Joaquin Benoit wants to keep playing
    Joaquin Benoit said Saturday that he wants to play "a couple more years."

    Advice: Benoit turned 38 in July, but he's showed no signs of slowing down with a 2.34 ERA and 63/23 K/BB ratio over 65 1/3 innings this season. The Padres hold an $8 million option on him for 2016, which is reasonable especially considering they'd owe him a $1.5 million buyout if they declined it. However, it appears the club might not be anxious to commit that much to a setup man when they already owe a big chunk of change to closer Craig Kimbrel. Benoit will have no trouble finding a taker for his services if the Padres do indeed let him walk. Today, 7:58 am
  • Stephen Piscotty (head) returns to lineup
    Stephen Piscotty (head) is back in the Cardinals' lineup for the first game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Braves.

    Advice: Piscotty was officially cleared on Saturday after passing concussion protocol and is back in action on the final day of the regular season. He wound up being sidelined for only five days following a violent collision with Peter Bourjos last Monday, which is pretty remarkable. Today, 7:41 am

  • Hector Olivera (elbow) out of lineup
    Hector Olivera (elbow) remained out of the Braves' lineup for the first game of Sunday's doubleheader versus the Cardinals.

    Advice: Olivera remains sore after being hit in the left elbow by a pitch last Tuesday. It's unclear whether he'll feel up to playing the second game. Adonis Garcia is handling third base in the first game of the doubleheader. Today, 7:27 am

  • Zach Walters undergoes shoulder surgery
    Zach Walters underwent surgery Friday to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

    Advice: The 26-year-old is expected to be cleared to resume baseball activities in 5-6 months, which means he'll surely get a late start to the 2016 season. Walters had a disappointing 2015 campaign that saw him spend most of his time at Triple-A Columbus, where he hit only .249/.310/.416 with 10 homers over 91 games. Today, 6:57 am

  • Chris Reed outrighted to Triple-A
    Marlins sent LHP Chris Reed outright to Triple-A New Orleans.

    Advice: He's now off the 40-man roster. A former first-round pick, Reed made a full-time move to reliever this season but responded with a 5.20 ERA between Double- and Triple-A. Today, 5:40 am
    Not Active
  • Donn Roach outrighted to Triple-A
    Blue Jays sent RHP Donn Roach outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Roach had been designated for assignment, but he's cleared waivers and will remain in the organization. He posted a 3.34 ERA at the Triple-A level this season but struck out only 53 over 143 innings. Today, 5:38 am

  • Sean Nolin allows three runs to Mariners
    Sean Nolin allowed three runs over five innings Saturday in a no-decision against the A's.

    Advice: Nolin's debut this year was delayed by shoulder problems, but he was healthy enough to get a chance last month and he ended up with a 5.28 ERA in six starts. Particularly unimpressive was his 15/12 K/BB ratio in 29 innings. Maybe he'll be stronger next year, but he probably won't be much of a threat to make the A's out of spring training. Yesterday, 11:13 pm
  • Roenis Elias struggles against A's
    Roenis Elias lasted just two-plus innings and gave up four runs Saturday against the A's.

    Advice: He was lucky it wasn't worse, considering that he left the bases loaded with no outs in the third and just one runner came around to score. Elias ends the year with a 5-8 record and a 4.14 ERA in 20 starts and two relief appearances. He should be a perfectly acceptable fifth starter going forward, but the Mariners probably won't have him a job next spring. Yesterday, 11:11 pm
  • Piscotty (concussion) cleared to resume playing
    Stephen Piscotty has been cleared to return from his concussion.

    Advice: He'll be available for Sunday's doubleheader against the Braves. The 24-year-old last played on Monday. Piscotty has enjoyed a productive rookie year, hitting .310 with a .502 slugging percentage in 229 at-bats. Yesterday, 7:42 pm

  • Adonis Garcia goes 1-for-4 in return Friday
    Adonis Garcia (back) returned to the Braves lineup on Friday, going 1-for-4 in a victory over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Garcia got the start at the hot corner and batted cleanup for the Braves on Friday evening. He's hitting .273/.289/.470 with eight homers and 23 RBI in 55 games with the big league club this season. Yesterday, 5:55 am
    W, 6-0 vs ^ StL; Top 6, 1-0 vs ^ StL
  • Mauer singles twice in loss to Royals
    Joe Mauer went 2-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Mauer was the only Twin with more than one hit in the contest. Both of his knocks went for singles, as was the case with all six of the Twins' hits. The 32-year-old first baseman is slashing .267/.340/.383 with 10 homers and 66 RBI this season. The OBP mark is nice--Mauer's always going to have a patient eye--but he's no longer a premier average hitter and his power remains somewhat suspect. Friday, 8:32 pm
  • Piscotty (concussion) to take BP on Friday
    Stephen Piscotty (concussion) will take batting practice on Friday.

    Advice: Piscotty will participate in batting practice on Friday before meeting with the doctor for another concussion test. Piscotty collided with fellow outfielder Peter Bourjos on Monday. Cards GM John Mozeliak said Tuesday that the 24-year-old had a "slight concussion," which is akin to being slightly pregnant. It's still possible that Piscotty plays before the regular season draws to a close on Sunday. Friday, 2:29 pm

  • Hector Olivera (elbow) scratched from lineup
    Hector Olivera (elbow) was scratched from Thursday's lineup against the Nationals.

    Advice: Olivera was hit in the elbow by a pitch on Tuesday and still isn't 100 percent. Adonis Garcia will fill in at third base. Thursday, 1:27 pm
    W, 6-0 vs ^ StL; Top 6, 1-0 vs ^ StL
  • Yan Gomes out of Indians' lineup Thursday
    Yan Gomes is out of the Indians' lineup Thursday.

    Advice: Roberto Perez will start at catcher and bat seventh against Twins right-hander Tyler Duffey. Gomes is wrapping up a frustrating and mostly-disappointing 2015 season. Thursday, 12:39 pm
  • Juan Uribe (chest) now doubtful for NLDS
    Juan Uribe (chest) has shown very little improvement and now looks doubtful for the NLDS.

    Advice: Uribe suffered a deep chest bruise while diving for a ball on September 20 and then aggravated the injury a few days later. He'll visit a specialist in New York on Thursday and hope to get some answers, but it sounds like an extended period of rest is the only cure here. Thursday, 7:12 am

  • Adonis Garcia (back) flies out in return
    Adonis Garcia (back) flied out as a pinch-hitter in the Braves' win over the Nationals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Garcia was scratched Tuesday with a stiff back and will remain day-to-day the rest of the way. The 30-year-old Cuban corner man has shown a nice spark in limited action this season for the Braves, slashing .269/.286/.474 with eight home runs and 23 RBI in 54 games. Thursday, 5:49 am
    W, 6-0 vs ^ StL; Top 6, 1-0 vs ^ StL
  • Hector Olivera (elbow) returns to lineup
    Hector Olivera (elbow) is back in the Braves' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Oliver exited Tuesday's game after being hit on the left elbow by a pitch, but he's fine. He's hitting .260/.321/.411 with two homers in 22 games so far with the big club. Wednesday, 11:48 am
    W, 6-0 vs ^ StL; Top 6, 1-0 vs ^ StL
  • Donn Roach designated for assignment
    Blue Jays designated RHP Donn Roach for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Jonathan Diaz. It's the fourth time Roach has been designated for assignment since last winter. Wednesday, 9:05 am

  • Hector Olivera leaves after HBP on elbow
    Hector Olivera departed Tuesday's game against the Nationals after being hit on the left elbow by a pitch.

    Advice: Olivera sports an elbow pad on his left arm, but Tanner Roark's offering still smarted. The Braves should have an update on status later Tuesday. Tuesday, 5:41 pm

  • Piscotty has a concussion, but could return
    Cardinals GM John Mozeliak said Tuesday that Stephen Piscotty has a "slight concussion."

    Advice: But all of the other scans came back negative and it's possible Piscotty will return to action before the end of the regular season. That's exceptional news considering how ugly his collision with Peter Bourjos appeared Monday night in Pittsburgh. The rookie outfielder might get some action in the Cardinals' final regular-season series this weekend in Atlanta and should be a go for the playoffs. Tuesday, 2:22 pm

  • Adonis Garcia (back) scratched Tuesday
    Adonis Garcia has been scratched from the Braves' starting lineup Tuesday due to a stiff back.

    Advice: Nick Swisher is now starting. Garcia is fine, but any injury at this point can be potentially season-ending. Tuesday, 1:46 pm

  • Stephen Piscotty released from hospital
    Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Tuesday that Stephen Piscotty (head) has been released from the hospital.

    Advice: Excellent news. It was easy to fear the worst after Monday's violent collision with teammate Peter Bourjos, but initial tests came back negative and he was held overnight for observation. Matheny said Piscotty suffered "a couple bruises, but overall everything checked out very clean." It's unclear when he'll be ready to play again, but he was fortunate things weren't much worse.

  • Elias solid over six in no-decision vs. HOU
    Roenis Elias got a no-decision, giving up two runs in six innings as the Mariners fell to the Astros on Monday.

    Advice: Both runs came in the first inning on solo home runs by George Springer and Evan Gattis. They were two of only three hits Elias allowed along with two walks and five strikeouts. The lefty now has a 3.89 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP and a 97/41 K/BB ratio over 113 1/3 innings. He'll make his final start of the year at home versus the Athletics. Monday, 10:13 pm
  • Tests on Stephen Piscotty come back negative
    Initial scans performed on Stephen Piscotty (head) came back negative.

    Advice: Cardinals manager Mike Matheny indicated that while Piscotty is sure to be very sore, it appears there should be no long-term damage. It's a miracle that Piscotty looks to have managed to avoid a serious injury after a violent collision with Peter Bourjos Monday that saw Bourjos' knee collide with Piscotty's head. He will be held at the hospital overnight for observation and the Cards should have more on the outfielder Tuesday. Monday, 8:09 pm

  • Piscotty leaves game after ugly collision
    Stephen Piscotty left Monday's game against the Pirates after colliding in the outfield with Peter Bourjos.

    Advice: It was an ugly scene in Pittsburgh, as Bourjos' knee looked to collide directly with Piscotty's head. Piscotty looked like he might have been knocked unconscious, although he eventually was moving his arms and waved as he was taken off the field on a stretcher. The Cardinals are only saying for now that Piscotty suffered a head contusion and was transported to a hospital to be evaluated further. It's certainly possible the Cardinals have been dealt another massive injury blow. Monday, 6:33 pm

  • Giants knock Nolin for five runs in 2 1/3 IP
    Sean Nolin struggled in Sunday's loss to the Giants, surrendering five runs (three earned) on seven hits over just 2 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Nolin might have allowed five runs, but it could have been worse. Three of the five scored on sacrifice flies, while the other two came home on RBI singles. Had the Giants squared up the ball a little better, this start could have been a disaster. As is, it pushed his ERA from 4.57 to a still shoddy 5.25. The 25-year-old southpaw also holds a tough 1.67 WHIP over 24 innings. He'll head to Safeco to tango with the Mariners next weekend before the season closes out for the Athletics. Sep 27, 4:20 pm
  • Eddie Rosario sitting out on Sunday
    Eddie Rosario is absent from the Twins' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It appears to be a simple day off. The Twins have shifted Aaron Hicks over to left field and are starting Byron Buxton in center. Sep 27, 7:47 am
  • Uribe (chest) may not be ready for NLDS
    There is concern within the Mets organization that Juan Uribe (chest) may not be ready in time for the National League Division Series.

    Advice: Uribe is listed as day-to-day with his chest injury. While X-rays revealed no structural damage on Friday, he's still in a good deal of pain and it's going to be awhile before he's ready to return to the lineup. Sep 26, 10:34 am
    Bot 8, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Uribe day-to-day after X-rays are negative
    Juan Uribe is considered day-to-day with a chest contusion after X-rays came back negative on Friday.

    Advice: The veteran infielder was lifted from Friday's game against the Reds after aggravating an existing chest injury. It sounds as though he was able to avoid any significant injury though and should be ready to return to action in a couple of days. Sep 25, 8:27 pm
    Bot 8, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Rosario drives in three runs in Friday's loss
    Eddie Rosario went 1-for-4 with a triple and three RBI as the Twins dropped a heartbreaking decision to the Tigers on Friday in Detroit.

    Advice: Rosario got the game's scoring started with a three-run triple in the fifth inning and came around to score on a sacrifice fly. Unfortunately, that would wind up being the extent of the Twins offense in the ballgame. The 23-year-old has done a nice job in his rookie season, slashing .268/.289/.462 with 12 homers, 49 RBI and 11 stolen bases. Sep 25, 7:51 pm
  • Juan Uribe leaves Friday with chest injury
    Juan Uribe was removed from Friday's game against the Reds after re-aggravating his chest injury.

    Advice: Uribe initially sustained a deep chest bruise while diving for a ball during Sunday's game. The injury isn't expected to sideline him for long, so expect him to return to the lineup before the end of the weekend. Sep 25, 7:20 pm
    Bot 8, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Stephen Piscotty homers, knocks in four
    Stephen Piscotty went 3-for-4 with a homer and four RBI as the Cardinals beat the Brewers 7-3 on Thursday.

    Advice: Piscotty hit the second of back-to-back homers with Jhonny Peralta in the fourth and then singled in two runs in the fifth and one more in the seventh. The Cardinals are going to have to start him somewhere in October if this keeps up, probably at first base. Sep 24, 8:54 pm

  • Juan Uribe (chest) singles as pinch-hitter
    Juan Uribe (chest) singled as a pinch-hitter in the Mets' loss to the Braves on Wednesday.

    Advice: Uribe hadn't appeared in a game since Sunday due to a deep chest bruise. It's clearly nothing too serious. The veteran infielder is batting .220/.303/.433 in 142 plate appearances since joining the NL East-leading Mets. Sep 24, 5:48 am
