  • Chad Kuhl leaves AAA start with biceps injury
    Chad Kuhl left his start for Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday with right biceps discomfort.

    Advice: It's unwelcome news at any time, but especially after Tyler Glasnow exited his start with the big club on the same day with a shoulder issue. How long Kuhl will be sidelined isn't known at this point, but it's fair to assume that he won't be starting for the Pirates for a while. Rotoworld.com 32 minutes ago

  • Joe Kelly recalled from Triple-A
    Red Sox recalled RHP Joe Kelly from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Kelly tossed five scoreless innings with a 9/1 K/BB ratio since being moved to Pawtucket's bullpen. A relief role is probably where he's belonged all along, and he could be a weapon out of the 'pen. Rotoworld.com 37 minutes ago

  • Anderson gives up three in six frames for win
    Tyler Anderson turned in a quality start at Coors Field, yielding three runs in six innings to help the Rockies beat the Braves 8-4 on Saturday.

    Advice: The rookie continues to impress. He struck out six batters, walked one and gave up eight base hits, none of which left the yard. It was his seventh start since being called up, and five of them have come at Coors Field. He is 3-3 with a 3.56 ERA. He has a 41/10 K/BB ratio in 48 innings. Perhaps most impressively, he has given up only four home runs, and two of those came on the road. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:11 pm
  • Wisler gives up six runs at Coors Field
    Matt Wisler took a beating at Coors Field on Saturday, giving up six runs in 5 1/3 innings and earning his 10th loss of the season.

    Advice: Good things rarely happen for pitchers in Denver and today was no exception. Wisler allowed seven baserunners and six of them scored. He gave up five hits and two walks while fanning three. The bad game lowers his record to 4-10 with a 4.92 ERA. As a mediocre pitcher on a team that rarely gives him much run support, Wisler is only an option for desperate fantasy owners. On the other hand, he is only 23 years old and is holding his own in the major leagues already, so maybe he will be a good fantasy pitcher in a few years. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:00 pm
  • Price gives up 11 hits, five runs to Twins
    David Price yielded 11 hits and five runs over 5 2/3 innings Saturday against the Twins.

    Advice: It was the second straight start Price has allowed 11 hits and the sixth time in his last seven outings that he's given up eight or more hits in a game. Of course, in three of those he also struck out 10 batters, and one was an eight-inning, four-hit gem. Thus is the ballad of David Price -- you take the bad with the good this year. It all adds up to a 4.51 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 145/30 K/BB ratio. Price will look for better days Thursday at the Angels. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:40 pm
  • Graveman yields three in complete game win
    Kendall Graveman tossed a complete game and held the Rays to three runs as the Athletics won in walk-off fashion by a score of 4-3 on Saturday.

    Advice: It was his first complete game of the season and only the second of his career. He finished the game on an efficient 102 pitches after allowing nine hits and one walk. He fanned four batters. He now has a 7-6 record and 4.15 ERA in 110 2/3 innings spread across 19 starts. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:36 pm
  • Smyly gives up one run in six innings on Sat.
    Drew Smyly held the Athletics to only one run in six innings but had to settle for a no-decision after the Rays' bullpen blew the save on Saturday.

    Advice: He gave up six hits and one walk and fanned only one batter in the ballgame. The lack of strikeouts is unusual for Smyly, who has whiffed more than a batter per inning this year. The win would really have been nice for his owners, who have suffered through his 2-11 record this year. He will take his 5.42 ERA into his next start at home against the Yankees. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:29 pm
  • Colome gives up two home runs to blow save
    Alex Colome entered the ninth inning with a two-run lead but gave up a game-tying two-run bomb to Jake Smolinski and a walk-off blast to Ryon Healy to blow the save and take a loss on Saturday.

    Advice: It was a very rare poor game for Colome, who snapped his streak of 21 consecutive saves. This was his first blown save of the season. The bad game lifted his ERA from 1.59 to 2.34 on the season. His job security at closer should still be strong. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:24 pm
  • Hamels gives up unearned run in win over KC
    Cole Hamels allowed only an unearned run over 5 1/3 innings of work in a win over the Royals on Saturday.

    Advice: Hamels wasn't as efficient as he was in a dominant win over the Cubs his last time out, giving up five hits and walking three on Saturday, but the result was the same. The southpaw has now won six of his last seven decisions and is 11-2 on the year. Hamels owns a shiny 2.87 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 120/50 K/BB ratio ahead of Thursday's rematch with these same Royals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:17 pm
  • Red Sox option Heath Hembree to Pawtucket
    Red Sox optioned RHP Heath Hembree to Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Hembree got lit up by the Twins on Saturday, continuing an ugly July. He still has a cool 2.41 ERA overall, however, and shouldn't be down for too long. Joe Kelly is probably going to replace him on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:49 pm

  • Wei-Yin Chen scratched from start on Monday
    Wei-Yin Chen has been scratched from his scheduled start Monday against the Phillies.

    Advice: It's an injury, but there are no specifics yet. Look for an update Sunday morning. Jarred Cosart will be called up from Triple-A New Orleans to take the hill instead. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:43 pm

  • DeGrom yields 10 hits, five runs to Marlins
    Jacob deGrom allowed 10 hits and five runs over 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Marlins on Saturday.

    Advice: The start, both in hits allowed and runs given up, goes down as his worst in 17 starts this year. That speaks to how bad the 28-year-old was on Saturday but also to how good he's been this year, as deGrom is still 6-5 with a 2.73 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 103/24 K/BB ratio after the loss. DeGrom will look to get back on the horse Thursday against the Rockies. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:36 pm
  • Ray gives up six runs while fanning 10
    Robbie Ray struck out 10 batters against only one walk, but was charged with six runs -- three earned -- in his five innings of work during a loss to the Reds on Saturday.

    Advice: Ray had great stuff tonight but was victimized by a Jake Lamb three-run error and a Jay Bruce three-run bomb. Ray has a fantastic 132 strikeouts in 109 1/3 innings. His ability to whiff batters has not translated to run prevention so far this year. He will take his 5-9 record and 4.53 ERA into a start in Milwaukee on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:14 pm
  • Scherzer fans 10 Padres in no-decision Sat.
    Max Scherzer struck out 10 batters without walking anybody and held the Padres to two runs in seven innings, but had to settle for a no-decision as the Nationals beat the Padres 3-2 on Saturday.

    Advice: The only damage was a two-run homer by Ryan Schimpf in the second inning. Scherzer leads the majors with 181 strikeouts and has walked only 35 in 141 2/3 innings. He has a stellar 2.92 ERA. The only thing keeping him from being a fantasy monster is his relatively modest 10-6 record. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:55 pm
  • Weaver chased after four innings by Astros
    Jered Weaver lasted just four innings Saturday, giving up six runs on seven hits in a loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Weaver wasn't terribly effective against most of the lineup, but Evan Gattis especially gave Weaver fits, hitting two homers off the right-hander. The clunker actually came after a few strong outings from the 33-year-old, who fell to 8-8 with the loss. Weaver will carry a 5.32 ERA and 1.45 WHIP into Thursday's contest against the potent Red Sox offense. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:24 pm
  • O's place Ubaldo on paternity leave
    Orioles placed RHP Ubaldo Jimenez on the paternity leave list.

    Advice: Jimenez was excused from the Orioles on Saturday with his wife going into labor. He'll be gone for 3-7 days. The right-hander hasn't pitched since July 8 anyway. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:43 pm

  • Matt Albers making spot start Saturday
    Matt Albers will make a spot start Saturday night against the Tigers.

    Advice: Chris Sale had to be scratched because of a cold. This will be Albers' first start since 2008. He probably won't go more than three or maybe four innings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:04 pm
  • Giolito returning to start Sunday vs. Padres
    Lucas Giolito will return to the majors to start Sunday at home against the Padres.

    Advice: It's a nice matchup for a talented pitcher, but it will likely be a spot start with Joe Ross (shoulder) nearing his return. Giolito allowed four earned runs in 7 2/3 innings (two starts) three weeks ago with Washington. Those were his first two MLB outings. Maybe he can force the Nationals to keep him on the major league roster if he dominates on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:33 pm

  • Uehara (pectoral) might not return this year
    Red Sox manager John Farrell said Saturday that he is "hopeful" Koji Uehara (pectoral) can return this season.

    Advice: Which of course means it's possible he will not return this season. Uehara was placed on the disabled list Wednesday with a strained pectoral, a unique injury for a pitcher. He got platelet-rich plasma treatment on Friday to try to expedite the healing. "There is no number of days that says Koji's going to put a ball back in his hand," Farrell told reporters Saturday. "He’s just getting past the soreness." Brad Ziegler is now serving as the primary closer in Boston with Craig Kimbrel (knee) also on the shelf. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:49 pm

  • Iwakuma cruises to easy victory over Jays
    Hisashi Iwakuma was staked to a huge lead early on Saturday and cruised through six innings of two-run ball in an easy victory over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: The Mariners provided him with 11 runs of support in the ballgame, making it so all Iwakuma had to do was throw strikes and avoid any major rallies against him. All told, he surrendered just four hits and three walks while striking out three. Now 11-6 on the season, he'll carry a 3.96 ERA and 1.28 WHIP into Saturday's start against the Cubs at Wrigley Field. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:28 pm
  • Ubaldo Jimenez (baby) excused from O's
    Ubaldo Jimenez has been excused from the Orioles with his wife going into labor.

    Advice: Jimenez could be placed on the paternity leave list if his absence lasts longer than a day or two. The right-hander hasn't appeared in a game for the O's since July 8, when he yielded five earned runs in 1 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:27 pm

  • Wheeler (elbow) to begin facing live hitters
    Zack Wheeler (elbow) will begin facing live hitters next week, per Mets manager Terry Collins.

    Advice: That's the final step before a minor league rehab assignment. Wheeler has run into multiple setbacks in his recovery from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery, but he could become an option for New York in late August if everything runs smoothly from here.

  • Zimmermann to begin rehab on Sunday
    Jordan Zimmermann (neck) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on Sunday.

    Advice: Zimmermann has been sidelined since the end of June with a strained neck, so he's likely to need at least two rehab starts before he's deemed ready to rejoin the Tigers rotation. Matt Boyd will continue to hold down that rotation spot for the time being. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:23 am

  • Jeff Samardzija and Cueto flipped in rotation
    Jeff Samardzija has had his scheduled start against the Yankees pushed back to Sunday.

    Advice: That means it'll be Johnny Cueto, not Samardzija, taking on Ivan Nova and the Yankees on Saturday. Make sure to adjust your lineups accordingly if you had planned on attacking Samardzija in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:48 am
  • Orioles could send Jimenez in trade for Upton
    Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union Tribune reports that the Orioles have discussed a potential trade that would send Ubaldo Jimenez and a prospect to the Padres for Melvin Upton.

    Advice: Jimenez would only be included in any deal to help offset the money remaining on Upton's contract, as his actual value is very limited. The veteran right-hander is owed roughly $18 million through next season while Upton is owed more than $22 million over the same time frame. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:00 pm

  • Harris converts 10th save of season
    Will Harris converted his 10th save of the season against the Angels on Friday.

    Advice: Harris got the call after Lance McCullers walked back-to-back batters to begin the ninth inning. He retired the first two batters he faced before Andrelton Simmons brought the Angels within one run with an RBI single. However, Harris hung on by getting Ji-Man Choi to strike out swinging to end it. Harris has had some rocky outings recently, including his first blown save of the season on Tuesday. Fantasy owners should continue to watch Ken Giles and Luke Gregerson just in case. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:18 pm
  • Carlos Estevez records eighth save
    Carlos Estevez worked out of a bases-loaded jam for his eighth save Friday against the Braves.

    Advice: The Braves helped Estevez with a sac bunt after the first two reached in a 4-3 game. Estevez went on to walk Erick Aybar, but he was able to retire Chase d'Arnaud and Jace Peterson to end the game. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:13 pm
  • Koji Uehara (pectoral) receives PRP injection
    Koji Uehara (pectoral) has been given a platelet-rich plasma injection.

    Advice: The hope is that it will help speed up the healing process with Uehara's right pectoral strain. At the moment, there's no timetable for the reliever's return. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:45 pm

  • Jordan Zimmermann (neck) nears rehab games
    Jordan Zimmermann (neck) could begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo as soon as this weekend.

    Advice: Zimmermann threw a 40-pitch bullpen session Thursday, which was his second time throwing from the bump since going down with a strained neck. He's expected to need two rehab starts before being activated from the disabled list. "We’ll see how far he goes in the first one," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "I’d say he probably needs two. But we’ll let him tell us how he feels and see how deep he goes in the first one." Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:40 am

  • Farrell calls Uehara pectoral injury 'unique'
    Red Sox manager John Farrell said that Koji Uehara's pectoral strain is "a unique injury for a pitcher."

    Advice: Uehara underwent an MRI on Wednesday, but his outlook for the future remains somewhat uncertain. Said Farrell, "It obviously confirms a strain. To what extent? We’re still getting our arms around that. This is a unique injury for a pitcher. I guess the best thing I can tell you is the MRI does confirm the strain." He went on to say that it is too early to place a timetable on Uehara's return. For a 41-year-old pitcher, that is less-than-encouraging news. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:05 pm

  • Chen gives up four runs in loss to Phillies
    Wei-Yin Chen was touched up for four runs on 11 hits in 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Phillies on Wednesday.

    Advice: He managed to fan five batters without walking anyone but got hit early and often. The loss moves his record to 5-4 with a 4.99 ERA. He has a league-average strikeout rate and an excellent walk rate. Home runs have been the problem this year. He has given up 20 longballs in 19 starts. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:14 pm

  • Uehara (pectoral) to have Wednesday MRI
    Koji Uehara (pectoral) is undergoing an MRI.

    Advice: Uehara hit the disabled list with a right pectoral strain on Wednesday. The Red Sox expect to have a more clear idea of the severity of his injury and a potential timetable for his return once the MRI results come back. With Uehara, Craig Kimbrel (knee) and Junichi Tazawa (shoulder) all on the disabled list, the recently acquired Brad Ziegler is expected to receive the bulk of save opportunities until the bullpen regains some semblance of health.

  • Red Sox place Koji Uehara (pec) on the DL
    Red Sox placed RHP Koji Uehara on the 15-day disabled list with a right pectoral strain.

    Advice: Uehara suffered the injury Tuesday night against the Giants. This could be a lengthy absence for the 41-year-old right-hander, who had been filling in at closer for the Red Sox. That job should now fall to Brad Ziegler, who's made three scoreless appearances since joining Boston from Arizona. Ziegler has a 2.61 ERA for the year. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:21 am

  • Koji Uehara diagnosed with strained pectoral
    Koji Uehara has been diagnosed with a strained right pectoral muscle.

    Advice: "I can't tell you at this time how much time Koji will miss," manager John Farrell said. But it figures to involve a 15-day disabled list stint at the very least. Uehara strained the pectoral muscle Tuesday night in the ninth inning of Boston's 4-0 win over the visiting Giants. He had been filling in at closer for the Red Sox, who may now have to turn to newcomer Brad Ziegler. There will be a reevaluation of the entire situation Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:12 pm

  • Uehara lifted from game with shoulder injury
    Koji Uehara left Tuesday's game against the Giants with an apparent right shoulder injury.

    Advice: Uehara summoned a trainer after his seventh pitch of the ninth inning and walked off holding his throwing shoulder. This type of thing doesn't usually turn out well. Look for an update soon from Boston. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:51 pm

  • Giolito sharp over 6 2/3 innings at AAA
    Lucas Giolito allowed just one unearned run over 6 2/3 innings Tuesday in a start for Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: He scattered seven hits and two walks over his 6 2/3 frames, striking out seven. 70 of his 104 pitches went for strikes. This was actually the Triple-A debut for Giolito, who jumped from Double-A Harrisburg directly to Washington last month for his first MLB start. He should get another shot with the Nats within the next few weeks. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:38 pm

    Pirates optioned RHP Chad Kuhl to Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: He'll head down to the minors now that Jameson Taillon is ready to return. Kuhl posted a 4.19 ERA and 13/5 K/BB ratio in 19 1/3 innings through his first four starts in the majors. He should get another chance soon. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:49 pm

  • Kendall Graveman goes seven in win
    Kendall Graveman yielded three runs -- two earned -- in seven innings Monday in a win over the Astros.

    Advice: It's the sixth time in seven starts that Graveman has allowed one or two earned runs, and his ERA has dipped from 5.49 on June 4 to 4.25 now. It still doesn't seem like much to get excited about, especially given his pedestrian strikeout rate, but the A's will certainly take it. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:42 pm
  • Carlos Estevez records sixth save
    Carlos Estevez worked a hitless ninth against the Rays on Monday for his sixth save.

    Advice: Estevez has two saves in three days after going nearly four weeks without one. Jake McGee's struggles since returning should result in Estevez holding down the closer gig for at least a couple of more weeks. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:53 pm
  • Drew Smyly gives up five runs to Rockies
    Drew Smyly gave up five runs in five innings Monday in a loss to the Rockies at Coors.

    Advice: The Rays gave Smyly an extra-long break in an effort to try to help him out of his funk, but he didn't have any success working on 11 days' rest tonight. He still doesn't seem hopeless, but 0-7 with a 7.60 ERA over a 10-start span just isn't very good. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:52 pm
  • Matt Wisler undone by the longball Monday
    Matt Wisler was roughed up for six runs -- five earned -- over five innings in Monday's loss to the Reds.

    Advice: Wisler faced the minimum through the first three innings, but the Reds got to him with three home runs and five runs in the fourth. The young right-hander has had an up-and-down season and has now allowed six runs in back-to-back outings. He'll have a tough time bouncing back this weekend in Colorado. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:58 pm
  • Wheeler (elbow) throwing bullpen sessions
    Zack Wheeler (elbow) has resumed throwing bullpen sessions at the Mets’ complex in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

    Advice: Wheeler has had multiple setbacks in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, but he has thrown off the mound three times in recent days. He threw just under 30 pitches in his most recent session on Sunday. It's unclear when he'll be ready for a rehab assignment, but a return before the end of August is possible if he can avoid setbacks. With Matt Harvey (thoracic outlet surgery) done for the year, he could prove valuable down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:53 pm

  • Zimmermann (neck) throws bullpen session
    Jordan Zimmermann (neck) threw 25 pitches in a bullpen session on Monday.

    Advice: Zimmermann reported feeling good and will throw again on Thursday in Chicago. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus has said that he'll need to make at least two rehab starts before being activated, so a return in the early part of August appears possible. The veteran right-hander has been out since the end of June with a strained neck. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:17 pm

  • David Price struggles in loss to Yankees
    David Price struggled in Sunday night's loss to the Yankees, surrendering three runs on 11 hits in his 5 2/3 frames.

    Advice: Price walked one and only recorded one strikeout on the night. All of the damage occurred during an uprising in the fourth inning, with run-scoring hits from Starlin Castro, Austin Romine and Jacoby Ellsbury. Price will look to improve upon his disappointing 4.36 ERA and 1.23 WHIP when he does battle against the Twins at home on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Jul 17, 8:18 pm
  • Robbie Ray fans seven in spectacular outing
    Robbie Ray dazzled in Sunday's victory over the Dodgers, punching out seven over seven scoreless innings.

    Advice: The left-hander scattered just four hits on the afternoon while walking two. The Diamondbacks bullpen then did their best to try to spoil Ray's fifth victory, allowing five runs in their two innings of work, but luckily they were able to hang on. Ray will bring a 4.49 ERA and 1.51 WHIP into Saturday's start against the Reds in Cincinnati. Rotoworld.com Jul 17, 6:53 pm
  • Scherzer sharp in no-decision against Pirates
    Max Scherzer pitched well in taking a no-decision against the Pirates on Sunday, allowing one run on six hits over seven innings.

    Advice: Scherzer struck out seven and walked one on the afternoon. The only run to score on his watch came home courtesy of a Starling Marte RBI double in the sixth inning. That would remain the only run to score -- by either team -- until Daniel Murphy came through with a clutch pinch-hit solo homer in the ninth to take Scherzer off the hook for the would-be loss. The ace right-hander will take his 2.94 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 171/35 K/BB ratio out to San Diego for a date with the Padres next time he toes the rubber. Rotoworld.com Jul 17, 4:26 pm
  • Nationals fail to strike in Kuhl's six frames
    Chad Kuhl pitched well in earning a no-decision against the Nationals on Sunday, firing six innings of shutout ball.

    Advice: Kuhl allowed just one hit, but despite his shutout work, no decision would be rendered until the Pirates secured the win via a solo home run by Starling Marte in the 18th inning. Through his first four major league starts, the 23-year-old right-hander has allowed nine runs on 19 hits over 19 1/3 innings. That works out to a 4.19 ERA. A home start against the Phillies shows next on his schedule. Rotoworld.com Jul 17, 4:25 pm

  • Jered Weaver goes seven strong vs. CHW
    Jered Weaver held the White Sox to one run over seven innings Sunday in an 8-1 victory for Anaheim.

    Advice: Weaver also had a nice showing in his final start before the All-Star break, throwing six innings of one-run ball versus the Rays. It's amazing he can pull that off with a fastball that rarely touches 88 mph. Still, the veteran right-hander holds an unsightly 5.02 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in 107 2/3 innings for the season. Rotoworld.com Jul 17, 3:38 pm
  • deGrom fires one-hit shutout in complete game
    Jacob deGrom was almost perfect in Sunday's 5-0 win over the Phillies, tossing a complete game, one-hit shutout.

    Advice: Marvelous work by deGrom, who struck out seven and walked just one, but he will probably be kicking himself for that lone hit. It came off the bat of one Mr. Zach Eflin -- the Phillies' starter for the day -- in the third inning. Oh what might have been. Fate has struck the Mets multiple blows in the form of rotation injury this season, making deGrom all the more important if the Mets want to make another push for the NL pennant. He will put his 2.38 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 98/23 K/BB ratio (102 innings) to the test in a road tilt with the Marlins next time he toes the rubber. Rotoworld.com Jul 17, 2:12 pm
  • Hamels dominates Cubs over eight innings
    Cole Hamels yielded just one unearned run over eight innings Sunday as the Rangers beat the Cubs.

    Advice: Hamels out-dueled Chicago starter John Lackey, who also went eight innings but gave up four runs on two walks and six hits. Hamels walked none, struck out seven, and scattered four hits -- three singles, one double -- over his eight dominant frames. The left-hander boasts a 10-2 record, 3.00 ERA, and 116 strikeouts over 120 innings this season. Rotoworld.com Jul 17, 1:44 pm
  • Samardzija gives up five runs in five innings
    Jeff Samardzija surrendered five runs -- four earned -- on five hits in five innings but escaped with a no-decision against the Padres on Saturday.

    Advice: He walked four and struck out four. Two of the five hits he allowed were solo home runs. Now with a 4.05 ERA and 1.21 WHIP, Samardzija will travel to New York for an interleague match-up with the Yankees next Saturday. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 10:06 pm
  • Estevez earns fifth save in win over Braves
    Carlos Estevez worked a perfect ninth inning Saturday, earning the save in a 4-3 win over the Braves.

    Advice: Estevez struck out one in the scoreless frame. He's now got five saves as the team's closer, owning a 4.18 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 36/14 K/BB ratio over 32 1/3 innings overall. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 8:08 pm
  • Iwakuma fires seven scoreless against Astros
    Hisashi Iwakuma tossed seven shutout innings Saturday, striking out eight, in a 1-0 win over the Astros.

    Advice: Iwakuma gave up two hits and a walk over his seven innings, needing just 90 pitches to get there. The win was his fourth in a row and his 10th overall. The right-hander has a 4.01 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 19 starts overall, and he'll try to make it a fifth straight win Friday at the Blue Jays. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 7:18 pm
  • Zimmermann to throw bullpen session Monday
    Jordan Zimmermann (neck) threw long tosses from 140 feet on Saturday.

    Advice: He's slated to throw a bullpen session on Monday. Manager Brad Ausmus said Zimmermann will need to make at least two rehab starts before he's ready to join the Tigers' rotation. A strained neck sent Zimmermann to the disabled list earlier this month. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 3:38 pm

  • Chen gives up four runs in six innings on Fri
    Wei-Yin Chen surrendered four runs on six hits in six innings but did not factor into the decision in the Marlins' 7-6 come-from-behind victory over the Cardinals on Friday.

    Advice: He struck out five and walked one. All the damage came in the fourth inning when he gave up a solo homer to Stephen Piscotty and a three-run homer to Tommy Pham. He has given up 19 home runs already in his 18 starts. Chen is having a poor year in a pitchers' park in Miami after having a very good year in a hitters' park in Baltimore last season. He will take his 5-2 record and 4.90 ERA into a road matchup with the Phillies next week. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 10:05 pm

  • Uehara notches fifth save of season
    Koji Uehara tossed a 1-2-3 ninth inning Friday against the Yankees for his fifth save of the season.

    Advice: Uehara threw 14 pitches and notched one strikeout along the way. The 41-year-old has been shaky at times this season, resulting in a 4.67 ERA, but he’s expected to be the primary closer for Boston while Craig Kimbrel is sidelined following left knee surgery. Kimbrel is expected to miss 3-6 weeks. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 7:22 pm

  • Zimmermann (neck) played catch Friday
    Jordan Zimmermann (neck) played catch Friday for the first time since landing on the disabled list.

    Advice: Zimmermann also got an adjustment from a chiropractor on Friday morning and reported feeling great after the workout. He's been on the disabled list since July 4, retroactive to July 2, because of a neck and probably isn't going to be able to make it back before the beginning of August. But it should be too much longer. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 2:03 pm

  • Late August 'best-case scenario' for Wheeler
    According to ESPN New York's Adam Rubin, late August might be Zack Wheeler's "best-case scenario" for a return to the major leagues in 2016.

    Advice: Wheeler has encountered multiple setbacks in his recovery from Tommy John surgery and has yet to resume throwing. The Mets need a replacement for Matt Harvey (season-ending shoulder surgery) but Wheeler isn't close to filling that role. For now, the Mets will go with long reliever Logan Verrett, though Triple-A starters Sean Gilmartin and Gabriel Ynoa could also get a shot at some point. Rotoworld.com Jul 14, 1:52 pm
