  • Loney drives in run with double vs Volquez
    James Loney went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Friday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Loney's RBI double in the second inning against Royals starter Edinson Volquez temporarily tied the score at 1-1. The Rays would go on to lose 3-2, dropping to 63-65 on the season. In 263 at-bats this season, the veteran first baseman is hitting .270/.311/.365 with four homers and 28 RBI. Rotoworld.com 20 minutes ago
  • Nava picks up three singles in loss
    Daniel Nava went 3-for-4 with a trio of singles and a run scored in Friday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: The Rays claimed Nava off waivers from the Red Sox on August 5, as Boston DFA'ed him due to a .152/.260/.182 triple-slash over 78 plate appearances. He might not be a destroyer of worlds, but he's a better hitter than those numbers. Since joining the Rays, he's 11-for-39. Rotoworld.com 25 minutes ago

  • Mark Teixeira (shin) could undergo more tests
    Mark Teixeira (shin) remains sore and could be sent for more tests.

    Advice: Teixeira returned to action Tuesday, but he could barely run and he's still feeling it after Thursday's off day. Obviously he's not in Friday's lineup and he could finally be placed on the disabled list. Greg Bird will fill in again at first base. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:39 pm

  • Matt Adams (quad) not ready for rehab games
    Matt Adams (quad) is not ready to begin a rehab assignment yet.

    Advice: Cardinals manager Mike Matheny previously indicated that Adams could return by "September 1st-ish," but obviously that's not going to happen. The first baseman continues to work out at the club's spring training facility and should be activated in a couple weeks if all goes well.

    Francisco Cervelli (feet) tripled and scored a run in his return to action Thursday.

    Advice: Cervelli sat out Wednesday's game after injuring both of his feet Tuesday, but he'll be fine. He's sporting a nifty .306/.374/.428 batting line for the Bucs. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:36 am

The Cardinals went on to win 5-3 as they completed a four-game sweep of the boys in the desert. In addition to the big home run, Moss also walked twice. Since joining the Cardinals on July 30, he's hit just .180/.317/.280 in an even 50 at-bats, though he does have 16 homers and 53 RBI to his good name for the season as a whole.

    James Loney has dropped the appeal of his one-game suspension and will serve it Thursday night.

    Advice: Loney was issued the punishment for making contact with home plate umpire Paul Nauert on Saturday after a called third strike. He probably wouldn't have been in the lineup anyway Thursday versus Twins lefty Tom Milone. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:49 pm
  • Votto walks twice in low-scoring affair
    Joey Votto went 0-for-2 with a pair of walks in Thursday afternoon's loss to the Dodgers.

  • Daniel Nava hits first homer of 2015
    Daniel Nava hit his first homer of the season Wednesday off the Twins' Tyler Duffey.

    Advice: Nava also walked in the game. He's 6-for-31 with six walks in 14 games with the Rays, and he's probably in line for more playing time again if Desmond Jennings misses more action. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:54 pm

    Francisco Cervelli (feet) is not in the Pirates' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Cervelli fouled a ball off his right foot and jammed his left food during Tuesday's game. He's expected to be fine, but it's no surprise he's getting a breather in this one. Chris Stewart is behind the plate. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:05 pm
  • Mark Teixeira sitting out on Wednesday
    Mark Teixeira is not in the Yankees' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Teixeira returned to action on Tuesday, but the Yanks have decided to rest his ailing right leg again for Wednesday's afternoon game with an off day coming Thursday. He should be back in there Friday. Greg Bird is at first base Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:11 am

    Advice: Johnson has been on the shelf since a spider bite on his left thumb on August 14 became infected. He's had to have the infection drained twice. "I ended up having an infection and they had to treat it with antibiotics," said Johnson. "The last two days I've finally been able to swing the bat." Johnson should be ready to return when rosters expand. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:21 am

    Joey Votto went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run and three walks in Monday's win against the Tigers.

    Advice: Votto walked twice and scored twice in the Reds' 10-run sixth inning. He'd tack on a two-run home run in the eighth inning against Guido Knudson. The effort wasn't quite enough to get Votto's OPS back over 1.000, as he's hitting .309/.446/.553 with 24 home runs and 62 RBI. His major league-leading walk total extended to 103 on the evening as well. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:51 pm

  • Matt Adams (quad) could return by Sept. 1
    Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Monday that he expects Matt Adams (quad) back "September 1st-ish."

    Advice: Adams is working out at the club's spring training facility and could begin a rehab assignment with High-A Palm Beach as soon as Tuesday. It sounds like the Cards expect him to need only about a week's worth of rehab games before he's activated. The big first baseman has made a quicker-than-expected recovery from surgery in late May to repair a Grade 3 quad strain. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:01 pm

    Advice: Greg Bird will get another start at first base as Teixeira continues to nurse a deep bone bruise in his right shin. The veteran is still considered day-to-day and could be available to pinch-hit Monday.

  • Matt Adams (quad) nears rehab assignment
    Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said on Sunday that Matt Adams (quad) could begin a rehab assignment with High-A Palm Beach as soon as Tuesday.

    Advice: Adams has been at the club's spring training complex the last few days going through a variety of drills and has evidently responded well to them. The thought had been that he was done for the season when he had quad surgery in late May, but now it looks like Adams could be activated in a couple weeks. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:17 am

  • Adams (quad) takes batting practice Wednesday
    Matt Adams (quad) took live batting practice prior to Wednesday's game.

    Advice: Adams also did some running in the outfield. "He went through another series of tests today and [was at] almost 100 percent with the running," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "He ran well and actually looked great. I think there might be just one more gear. But everything that we're watching, he just keeps responding very well. Getting back the swing, getting a good feel on the field again, those are things that he just needs some repetition with." Adams will continue working out in Florida, and despite Wednesday's step forward, there is still no timetable for his return. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:42 pm

  • Mauer notches two-run single in loss to Yanks
    Joe Mauer went 2-for-4 with a two-run single in Wednesday afternoon's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Mauer singled home Chris Herrmann and Shane Robinson in the sixth inning. He started out the season driving in runs at a very nice clip, having accumulated 30 ribbies through May. In the two-and-a-half months since, he's driven in 23. These things happen when you play for a trying offense. On the year, the former batting champ is hitting .267/.332/.378 with eight home runs, 53 RBI and 51 runs scored. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:51 pm

  • Ike Davis (hip) lands on disabled list
    Athletics placed 1B Ike Davis on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 18, with a strained left hip.

    Advice: The hip has been bothering Davis for a while, as it appears he hurt it by overcompensating for his quad ailment. He underwent an MRI Tuesday and is still awaiting the results. Mark Canha has been drawing most of the starts at first base over Davis of late, anyway. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:39 am

  • Indians place Chris Johnson (hand) on the DL
    Indians placed 1B/3B Chris Johnson on the 15-day disabled list with a left hand infection.
