  • Braves recall Ryan Kelly from AAA Gwinnett
    Braves recalled RHP Ryan Kelly from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Kelly has posted exceptional numbers this year in the minors and should get a long look in a middle relief role with the possibility of some late-inning nods. Atlanta will be open to trying anything in that bullpen down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:22 am

  • Robertson pulled off waivers after NYY claim
    David Robertson was claimed off revocable waivers by the Yankees, but the White Sox have pulled him back.

    Advice: It doesn't sound like the possibility of a trade was ever taken seriously on either side. Chicago is looking to compete in 2016 and Robertson has been very good in his first season as the team's closer. The 30-year-old right-hander signed a four-year, $46 million free agent contract with the White Sox over the winter after saving 39 games for the Yankees in 2014. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:13 am

Johnson has not appeared in a major league game since 2013, but he boasts a 2.30 ERA, 1.079 WHIP, and 67/16 K/BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings this season at Triple-A Norfolk. The 28-year-old right-hander should do well in a middle relief role over the final month of the 2015 campaign. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:05 am

    David Freese (finger) will join the Angels on Monday in Oakland and could be activated from the disabled list.

    Advice: Freese has been playing in rehab games with Triple-A Salt Lake for the past week with no lingering discomfort in his right index finger. He suffered a non-displaced fracture of that finger back in late July. Angels third basemen have hit a combined .183 with two homers in 36 games with Freese on the shelf, so he should return to a starting gig. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:02 am

  • Michael Taylor (knee) goes 2-for-4 in return
    Michael Taylor (knee) went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in his return to the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Taylor was held out for a couple games after bruising his right knee. The young outfielder is going to be an important player for the second-place Nationals down the stretch with Denard Span (hip) now ruled out for the remainder of the 2015 season. Taylor, 24, is batting .243/.292/.391 with 13 home runs and 15 stolen bases in 111 games this year at the major league level. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:15 am

    Advice: Now the Yankees and White Sox have until Monday at 2 p.m. ET to work something out. Heyman says there is "no evidence of trade talks between the teams," which is typical of waiver claims this time of year. Robertson, who saved 39 games for the Yankees in 2014, has registered a 2.60 ERA, 0.88 WHIP, and 71/11 K/BB ratio in 52 innings this season for Chicago. He signed a four-year, $46 million free agent contract last winter. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:20 am

    Advice: Yelich hadn't appeared in a game for the Fish since re-injuring his right knee and fouling a ball off his ankle last Wednesday. The 23-year-old outfielder should be ready to return to everyday action this week. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:10 am

  • Michael Taylor (knee) appears as pinch-hitter
    Michael Taylor (knee) grounded out as a pinch-hitter in Saturday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Taylor hasn't started the last two games due to a bruised right knee, but that he was able to pinch-hit is a good sign that he's close. He could be back in the lineup Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:24 am
  • Baez in Cubs' first wave of September callups
    According to Patrick Mooney of CSNChicago.com, infield prospect Javier Baez is expected to be in the Cubs' first wave of September callups.

    Advice: And it seems very possible that he could position himself for regular starts at second base. Starlin Castro and Tommy La Stella have been playing there with Addison Russell recently taking over at shortstop. Baez, 22, is batting .316/.380/.530 with 13 home runs, 60 RBI, and 17 stolen bases in 67 games this season at the Triple-A level. He'll be worth trying out in most mixed fantasy leagues.

    Michael Taylor (knee) is not in the Nationals' starting lineup Saturday against the Marlins.

    Advice: He banged his right knee against the outfield wall in Thursday's win against San Diego. Denard Span's season-ending hip injury has opened up playing time for Taylor in center field. Bryce Harper will get the start there on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:42 pm

  • Hanley Ramirez scratched from lineup Friday
    Hanley Ramirez was scratched from the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

    Advice: It's unclear what the reasoning is for the scratch, but Ramirez has had a foot issue recently. The Red Sox should have more on his status shortstop. Jackie Bradley took his spot in left field. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:58 pm

  • Michael Taylor (knee) to miss a few games
    Michael Taylor (knee) is expected to be sidelined for a few days.

    Advice: The feeling is that Taylor didn't cause any major damage when he collided with the outfield wall Thursday, but he has a bad bruise on his right knee. He could wind up missing the entire weekend series against the Marlins. Matt den Dekker should handle center field for a few days. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:32 am
  • Christian Yelich re-tweaks right knee
    Christian Yelich didn't play Thursday because he re-injured his right knee and also fouled a ball off his ankle on Wednesday.

    Advice: Yelich just returned from the disabled list on Tuesday after missing the last two weeks with a bruised right knee.

    Michael Taylor (knee) is listed as day-to-day after being diagnosed with a right knee contusion on Thursday.

    Advice: Taylor was attempting to track down a deep drive off the bat of Melvin Upton when he leaped and crashed into the outfield wall at full speed.

Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:07 pm
  • Yelich (knee) out of Thursday's MIA lineup
    Christian Yelich is out of Thursday's lineup against the Pirates with a bruised knee.

  • Rosenthal earns 40th save in win over ARI
    Trevor Rosenthal notched his 40th save of the season in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Diamondbacks, striking out two and walking one in a scoreless ninth inning.

    Advice: Rosenthal came on looking to secure the win for John Lackey. He struck out Paul Goldschmidt and David Peralta to open the ninth inning, but followed those two strikeouts with a walk to Aaron Hill, bringing the tying run to the plate in the form of Jake Lamb. Rosenthal then bared down to induce a fly out from Lamb to end the game. The 25-year-old has been among the best closers in baseball this season, converting 40-of-42 opportunities while holding a 1.54 ERA and 66/20 K/BB ratio over 58 1/3 innings. He's tied with Pirates closer Mark Melancon for the major league saves lead. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:46 pm
  • Rosenthal to miss series for baby's birth
    Trevor Rosenthal will miss the Cardinals' series with the Giants due to the birth of his child.

    Advice: Rosenthal's wife is scheduled to be induced on Friday, and the closer already has a plane ticket bought to be there for the birth. Rosenthal will stay in St. Louis and rejoin the team after they return home from San Francisco. Kevin Siegrist is the best bet to get save opportunities during Rosenthal's absence, so save-needy owners should take a flier on the southpaw while the closer is away. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:32 pm
  • Holaday (thumb) already back from AAA DL
    Bryan Holaday (thumb) has already been activated from the disabled list at Triple-A Toledo.

  • Robertson slams door on Red Sox for 26th save
    David Robertson pitched a scoreless ninth inning to earn his 26th save against the Red Sox on Tuesday.

    Advice: Robertson struck out two in the perfect inning of work. The right-hander has been shaky in August but has still converted 26-of-30 save chances on the year. Robertson has a 2.76 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 68/11 K/BB ratio over 49 innings in his first year in Chicago. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:01 pm
  • Foltynewicz hurt by Braves' defense in a loss
    Michael Foltynewicz allowed four runs (all unearned) in five innings, resulting in a loss to the Astros on Tuesday.

    Advice: Adonis Garcia made a fielding error in the first inning which helped the Rockies score twice. Garcia committed another error to allow Nick Hundley to reach to lead off the fourth, and the Rockies would go on to score twice more. It wasn't a bad effort by Foltynewicz, as he limited the opposition to five hits and a walk while striking out three. The inconsistent right-hander has a 5.71 ERA, a 1.63 WHIP, and a 77/29 K/BB ratio over 86 2/3 innings. He'll hope for better defense when he hosts the Marlins in his next start. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:59 pm
  • Freese (finger) to begin playing 3B at AAA

  • Hanley confirms he's moving to 1B next year
    Hanley Ramirez acknowledged to reporters Tuesday that he is moving to first base next year.

    Advice: The first directive from new Red Sox president Dave Dombrowski, perhaps? Hanley was spotted taking grounders and making throws on Tuesday afternoon in Chicago and said after the workout that he could begin seeing starts at first base down the stretch this season. "I'm looking forward to it," said Hanley, who has been a disaster in left field. Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., and Rusney Castillo make up the outfield of the future in Boston. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:49 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez taking grounders at first base
    Hanley Ramirez took grounders and made throws at first base on Tuesday afternoon.

    Advice: Hanley has been a huge disappointment defensively in his first year as an everyday outfielder. An eventual move to first base makes sense for the former shortstop with Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., and Rusney Castillo lined up as Boston's outfield of the future. Ramirez is under contract with the Red Sox through 2018. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:29 pm
  • Yelich (knee) activated from disabled list
    Marlins activated OF Christian Yelich from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Yelich ended up missing the minimum 15 days with a right knee contusion and didn't even require a minor league rehab assignment. The 23-year-old is batting .275/.343/.376 with six home runs, 29 RBI, and 14 steals over 92 games this season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:23 pm
  • Rosenthal allows a run but gets his 39th save
    Trevor Rosenthal allowed a run but finished out the ninth inning for his 39th save in Monday's 5-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Rosenthal allowed a one-out double to A.J. Pollock and a two-out single to David Peralta, but struck out pinch-hitter Yasmany Tomas to end the game. The right-hander is 39-for-41 in save chances with a 1.57 ERA and a 64/19 K/BB ratio in 57 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:54 pm
  • Yelich (knee) aiming to return on Tuesday
    Christian Yelich (knee) is hopeful of being activated from the disabled list on Tuesday, the first day he's eligible.

    Advice: It's a surprise, as just a couple days ago Yelich wasn't cleared to run yet. He made nice progress over the weekend, though, and will shag some flies prior to Monday's game in hopes of being activated on Tuesday. The young outfielder has been out with a right knee contusion. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:35 pm
  • Cubs not considering Baez promotion yet
    Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Monday that there are no immediate plans to promote Javier Baez.

    Advice: Jorge Soler's oblique injury has opened some playing time at second base because Chris Coghlan will have to move back to the outfield, but Baez isn't being considered as an option yet. That could change when rosters expand on September 1. Baez, 22, is batting .304/.372/.518 with 12 home runs, 55 RBI, and 15 stolen bases in 62 games this season at the Triple-A level.

  • Ramirez doubles in loss to Royals
    Hanley Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a double in Saturday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: The double was just Ramirez's 11th of the season. He's been one of the worst regular starters since the middle of July, hitting just .191/.214/.234 in 98 post-All-Star at-bats. To be fair, he is dealing with a foot injury this month, but the numbers he's posted for the season (.254/.294/.433 with 19 homers, 53 RBI and six steals) simply haven't been what the Red Sox paid for in the off-season. Rotoworld.com Aug 22, 8:13 pm
  • Freese to begin rehab assignment on Sunday
    David Freese (finger) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday.

    Advice: Freese was able to throw a ball without any issues on Thursday and Friday, which was the last hurdle he needed to clear before appearing in live game action. He should be able to rejoin the Angels lineup before the end of the month. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 4:37 pm

  • Shelby Miller's winless streak continues
    Shelby Miller was dealt his 10th loss of the season on Friday, surrendering five runs (three earned) on six hits over 6 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Miller punched out eight on the afternoon while walking four. He looked poised to finally snap his winless streak, which extends to 17 starts, as he carried a 3-1 lead into the sixth inning on Friday before the Cubs offense woke up. Now 5-10 on the year, Miller will carry a stellar 2.50 ERA and 1.17 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Rockies. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 4:09 pm
  • Christian Yelich (knee) not running yet
    Christian Yelich (knee) has yet to be cleared to resume running.

    Advice: Yelich has been taking batting practice with no issues, but there's still some soreness and swelling in his bruised right knee that's keeping him from running. At this point, it seems unlikely that he'll return before the end of the month. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 8:33 am
  • David Freese (finger) throws with no issues
    David Freese (finger) threw with full finger pressure on the ball on Thursday for the second straight day.

    Advice: Freese has been hitting for a while with no issues but only recently has been able to throw. He's nearing a rehab assignment and could have a shot to rejoin the Angels before the end of the month. It seems more likely, however, that they'll wait until rosters expand to activate him.

  • Michael Taylor hits long home run
    Michael Taylor crushed his 11th homer Thursday off the Rockies' Yohan Flande.

    Advice: Statcast had the homer at 490 feet, but other estimates have come in closer to the 470-foot range. Either way, it was a true blast. Taylor hasn't been an on-base guy as a rookie, but his power-speed combination makes him awfully intriguing going forward. Rotoworld.com Aug 20, 9:00 pm
