  • Sean Rodriguez ejected in the seventh inning
    Sean Rodriguez was ejected in the seventh inning of Wednesday's Wild Card game against the Cubs.

    Advice: The whole fracas began when Cubs starter Jake Arrieta was plunked by Pirates reliever Tony Watson while Arrieta batted in the seventh inning. The two exchanged words, which led to both benches clearing. Rodriguez had to be held back by three teammates at one point. The Pirates were trailing 4-0 at the time of his ejection. Following his removal from the game, Rodriguez proceeded to attack a container of Gatorade. Yesterday, 7:15 pm

  • Angels outright Green to Triple-A
    Angels sent INF/OF Grant Green outright to Triple-A Salt Lake.

  • Flores lost 10 pounds dealing with illness
    Mets manager Terry Collins said that Wilmer Flores lost 10 pounds in five days while dealing with strep throat.

    Advice: Flores has also been dealing with lower back stiffness in recent days, but it isn't going to keep him off the Mets' roster for the NLDS against the Dodgers. However, Ruben Tejada is expected to see most of the playing time at shortstop during the series. Yesterday, 8:10 am
    W, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Beckham, Franklin options at SS for Rays
    The Rays will look primarily to internal options Tim Beckham and Nick Franklin to play shortstop next season.

    Advice: Asdrubal Cabrera is headed to free agency this winter, so the position will be up for grabs in the spring. Beckham and Franklin only received sporadic playing time this season, so it's far from a sure thing. Rays president Matt Silverman hasn't ruled out a veteran addition, but prospect Daniel Robertson and minor league infielder Taylor Motter could also be in the mix. Yesterday, 6:41 am
    W, 12-3 vs ^ Tor
  • Uribe (chest) out for NLDS vs. Dodgers
    Juan Uribe (chest) will miss the NLDS against the Dodgers.

    Advice: It's not a big surprise, as Uribe suffered a chest bruise diving for a ball on September 20 and has seen little in the way of improvement. His absence will likely clear the way for Kirk Nieuwenhuis to make the roster. The Mets haven't ruled Uribe out for future rounds of the playoffs. Tuesday, 10:44 am

  • Flores says his back feels good
    Wilmer Flores said Tuesday that his back feels good.

    Advice: Flores sat out the final four games of the regular season with some back stiffness, but he's good to go for the NLDS. However, Ruben Tejada is likely to get most of the playing time at shortstop. Tuesday, 10:31 am

  • Twins' Brian Dozier to undergo MRI on hip
    Twins general manager Terry Ryan said Tuesday that Brian Dozier will undergo an MRI on his hip.

    Advice: It's not considered serious, but it could provide some context for his drop-off in production during the second half. The 28-year-old had an .841 OPS in the first half and a .639 OPS after the All-Star break. Tuesday, 9:29 am

  • Gordon wins NL batting title with 3-hit day
    Dee Gordon went 3-for-4, clinching the National League batting title, as the Marlins lost to the Phillies on Sunday.

    Advice: Gordon led off the game with a double and scored in the first inning, then clocked a solo homer in the third to extend the lead to 2-0. Bryce Harper, his competitor for the batting title, went 1-for-4. Gordon ends the season hitting .333/.359/.418 with four home runs, 46 RBI, 88 runs scored, and 58 stolen bases. Sunday, 2:44 pm

  • DJ LeMahieu not in Sunday's lineup
    DJ LeMahieu is not in the Rockies' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: LeMahieu is sporting a .301 average and the club wants to make sure it stays above the .300 mark. Daniel Descalso is covering second base. Sunday, 11:19 am
    W, 7-3 x @SF
  • X-ray on Schoop's hand is negative
    A second X-ray on Jonathan Schoop's right hand came back negative.

    Advice: It confirms the first diagnosis. Schoop isn't in Sunday's lineup but is available off the bench. Sunday, 10:13 am
    W, 9-4 vs x NYY
  • Jason Kipnis absent from Sunday's lineup
    Jason Kipnis is not in the Indians' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's simply getting the day off. Jose Ramirez is at second base in Kipnis' place. Sunday, 9:39 am
    W, 3-1 vs x Bos
  • 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. Sunday, 9:23 am

  • Logan Forsythe (foot) still out of lineup
    Logan Forsythe (foot) remained out of the Rays' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Forsythe will end the season having missed the last five games with a bruised right foot as a result of a hit by pitch. It's an unfortunate way to wrap up the campaign, but the second baseman had a breakthrough year with a .281/.359/.444 batting line, 17 homers, 68 RBI and nine steals. Tim Beckham is at second base Sunday. Sunday, 9:03 am
    W, 12-3 vs x Tor
  • Justin Turner sitting out on Sunday
    Justin Turner is not in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Turner has been banged up of late so the Dodgers will get him some rest in the regular season finale. Alex Guerrero is at third base. Sunday, 8:57 am

  • Brian Dozier absent from Sunday's lineup
    Brian Dozier is absent from the Twins' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Minnesota is playing a lot of subs in this one. It will be Eduardo Escobar shifting over to second base and Danny Santana covering shortstop. Sunday, 8:28 am

  • Robinson Cano hits three-run homer
    Robinson Cano went 2-for-5 and hit a three-run homer against the A's on Saturday.

    Advice: Cano has hit .332 with 15 homers and 49 RBI in 69 games during the second half of the season, even while playing through a hernia that's going to require surgery in the offseason. If the Comeback Player of the Year award was for bouncing back during a season, Cano would be a shoo-in. Saturday, 11:07 pm
    W, 3-2 vs ^ Oak
  • Beckham ends game with two-run single vs TOR
    Tim Beckham hit a walk-off two-run single to end Saturday's 4-3 win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Beckham entered the ninth with an 0-for-2 day working, but he banished that boring line with a two-run single off Blue Jays reliever Roberto Osuna to flip a 3-2 disadvantage into a 4-3 win. Nice hit, particularly given that the 25-year-old second baseman is slashing just .223/.270/.437 with nine homers and 35 RBI over an even 200 at-bats this season. Saturday, 6:30 pm
    W, 12-3 vs ^ Tor
  • Brian Dozier plates lone run in loss Saturday
    Brian Dozier went 1-for-4 and plated the Twins lone run as they dropped a critical decision to the Royals on Saturday in Minnesota.

    Advice: The loss closes the door on the Twins playoff hopes. At the time, Dozier's run-scoring single in the sixth inning tied the game at 1-1, but the Royals would strike for four the following frame to put the game out of reach. Dozier also swiped his 12th base of the year in the loss. The power-hitting infielder is slashing .236/.307/.444 on the season with 28 long balls and 77 RBI. Saturday, 1:08 pm
    L, 6-1 vs x KC
  • Forsythe (foot) remains out of Rays lineup
    Logan Forsythe (foot) remains out of the Rays starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Forsythe has been sidelined since September 29 with a bruised right foot and may end up not returning this season. Tim Beckham will start in his place on Saturday. Saturday, 11:15 am
    W, 12-3 vs x Tor
  • Schoop to have another X-ray on Saturday
    Jonathan Schoop is set to have another X-ray of his injured hand on Saturday as he continues to deal with swelling.

    Advice: While the first X-ray didn't find a fracture, Schoop is still in quite a bit of pain and the swelling hasn't subsided as anticipated. There's a good chance that his season is over. Saturday, 8:15 am
    W, 9-4 vs x NYY
  • Jonathan Schoop not in O's lineup Saturday
    Jonathan Schoop (hand) is not in the Orioles starting lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Yankees.

    Advice: Schoop was pulled from Thursday's game against the Blue Jays after being hit by a pitch in the first inning. He's considered day-to-day and could be ready to return for the second game on Saturday. Saturday, 7:30 am
    W, 9-4 vs x NYY
  • Justin Turner knocks in two runs
    Justin Turner singled, drove in two runs and walked Friday against the Padres.

    Advice: Turner is working to ensure himself a starting spot in the postseason following his second-half injuries. He rebounded in September following a poor August, so he still seems like the Dodgers' best option at third base. Friday, 9:54 pm

  • Cano to undergo surgery on October 13
    Robinson Cano is set to undergo surgery on October 13 to repair a sports hernia.

    Advice: Cano has been able to play through the injury since mid-July. He'll be completely recovered and ready to go for the start of spring training next season. Friday, 3:57 pm
    W, 3-2 vs ^ Oak
  • Forsyth (foot) not in Friday's lineup
    Logan Forsythe (foot) is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Forsythe's being held out with a bruised right foot. He suffered the injury on September 29. Nick Franklin will take his spot at second base while hitting eighth. Friday, 1:54 pm
    W, 12-3 vs x Tor
  • Schoop exits game with hand contusion
    Jonathan Schoop exited Thursday's game against the Blue Jays with a right hand contusion.

    Advice: Schoop was hit in the hand with a pitch in the first inning and Paul Janish replaced him at second base after a lengthy rain delay. It's probably safe to call him day-to-day. Thursday, 1:05 pm
    W, 9-4 vs x NYY
  • Logan Forsythe (foot) out again Thursday
    Logan Forsythe (foot) is out again Thursday.

    Advice: Forsythe was hit on the right foot by a pitch on Tuesday and still has some discomfort. He might not see much action over the final weekend of the regular season. Thursday, 11:51 am
    W, 12-3 vs x Tor
  • Flores (back) unlikely to play Friday either
    Wilmer Flores (back) is not expected to play Friday either.

    Advice: Flores made an early exit from Wednesday's game with stiffness in his lower back and was still feeling the discomfort on Thursday. It's get-healthy time for the National League East-champion Mets. Flores should be fine by the start of the NLDS next Friday. Thursday, 11:42 am
    W, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Justin Turner has some swelling in forearm
    Justin Turner has some forearm swelling.

    Advice: That's part of the reason he's absent from the Dodgers' starting lineup Thursday afternoon in San Francisco. Turner got struck on the arm by a pitch earlier this week. He should be completely fine for the final weekend of the regular season and the NLDS. Chase Utley is starting at third base against the Giants. Thursday, 10:36 am

    Justin Turner is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon.

  • 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

  • Wilmer Flores exits with lower back stiffness
    Wilmer Flores left Wednesday's game with lower back stiffness.

    Advice: Flores didn't appear to be dealing with anything too serious before being removed from the game. It sounds minor, and Flores shouldn't be sidelined too long as a result. Wednesday, 6:35 pm
    W, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Wilmer Flores exits with undisclosed injury
    Wilmer Flores left Wednesday's game against the Phillies with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: Either that, or Mets manager Terry Collins wanted to get Flores out of the game in the top of the fourth inning for some baseball-related reason. Flores was replaced by pinch-runner Ruben Tejada. He was 1-for-2 before leaving. The Mets should provide some clarity soon. Wednesday, 5:47 pm
    W, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Grant Green designated for assignment
    Angels designated INF/OF Grant Green for assignment.

    Advice: Green has always hit in the minors but didn't have a position, and the Angels didn't want to wait any more for the bat to come around after a .249/.283/.335 start to his career. He just turned 28 this week but could draw some interest on waivers. Wednesday, 1:03 pm

  • Logan Forsythe (foot) sitting out Wednesday
    Logan Forsythe (foot) is not in the Rays' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Forsythe was hit on the right foot by a pitch Tuesday, forcing him from the game. He's considered day-to-day. Nick Franklin is handling second base. Wednesday, 12:24 pm

  • Cano smacks 20th homer in Mariners' win
    Robinson Cano went 1-for-3 with a sacrifice fly and a two-run home run as the Mariners beat the Astros on Tuesday.

    Advice: Cano hit one of two first-inning sacrifice flies, giving the Mariners an early 2-1 lead. He belted a two-run homer in the sixth to tie the game at 4-4, eventually allowing the Mariners to pull ahead and win. While his numbers are solid, they're not what the Mariners expected when they signed him to a 10-year, $240 million contract before the 2014 season. Cano is hitting .282/.330/.441 with 20 home runs and 76 RBI on the year. Tuesday, 10:36 pm
    W, 3-2 vs ^ Oak
  • Logan Forsythe exits after HBP on foot
    Logan Forsythe left Tuesday's game against the Marlins after being hit on the right foot by a pitch.

    Advice: Forsythe initially stayed in the game after being hit by a pitch in the bottom of the first inning, but he was replaced by Tim Beckham when the Rays took the field for the top of the third. The second baseman will likely be sent for X-rays. Tuesday, 4:48 pm
    W, 12-3 vs x Tor
  • Cano (abdomen) could sit out this weekend
    Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Robinson Cano (abdomen) could be rested during this weekend's series against the Athletics.

    Advice: Cano has been playing through an abdominal strain since late July. He'll continue to be in the lineup for the early-week series versus the Astros since there are playoff implications, but the second baseman could rest for at least a portion of the series over the weekend. It's something for fantasy owners to keep in mind this week. Monday, 3:43 pm
