  • Manaea exits start with apparent injury
    Sean Manaea exited Monday's start against the Astros in the bottom of the fourth inning with an apparent injury.

    Advice: The exact nature of the injury isn't yet clear. Manaea allowed two runs (both unearned) on one hit and two walks over 3 1/3 innings before Chris Smith replaced him. The A's should pass along an update soon. Rotoworld.com 26 minutes ago
  • Alvarez (shoulder) starting in High-A on Tue.
    Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) will make a minor league rehab start with High-A Stockton on Tuesday.

    Advice: Alvarez has been shut down since mid-June due to a setback with his surgically-repaired shoulder, but he was finally able to resume a minor league rehab assignment last week. At this point, the best-case scenario is that he joins the A's as a reliever down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:13 pm
  • McCarthy (hip) to throw Tuesday
    Brandon McCarthy (hip) is scheduled to throw Tuesday.

    Advice: McCarthy has been sidelined since August 13 due to right hip stiffness, but he threw a bullpen session last Wednesday and continues to ramp things up for his return. It's unclear when he might be activated or what his role might be once he's ready. The Dodgers' rotation has a lot of uncertainty at the moment. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:53 pm
  • McCullers (elbow) plays catch again Mon.
    Lance McCullers (elbow) played catch from a distance of 60-90 feet.

    Advice: McCullers landed on the disabled list in early August with discomfort in his right elbow, but he was able to resume throwing on Friday. He's making incremental progress, but it's unclear if there will be enough time for him to make it back this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:41 pm
    15-Day DL
    Bot 5, 2-0 vs Oak
     
  • Gregerson (ankle) nearing return to action
    Luke Gregerson (ankle) is expected to be available to pitch in this week's series against the Athletics.

    Advice: Gregerson hasn't pitched since August 18 due to a left ankle injury. He has thrown off the mound in recent days and was scheduled to do so again on Monday, which should determine when he'll be ready to return. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:08 pm
  • Mets call up Montero to start Monday
    Mets recalled RHP Rafael Montero from Double-A Binghamton.

    Advice: The Mets are skipping Jacob deGrom in the rotation, so Montero will make a spot-start Monday against the Marlins. The 25-year-old was a mess with Triple-A Las Vegas this season, but he has posted a 1.70 ERA and 38/18 K/BB ratio in 47 2/3 innings over eight starts since his demotion to Double-A. Still, he doesn't come recommended in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:50 pm
  • Glasnow will make at least one start in AAA
    Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Monday that Tyler Glasnow will make one start with Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: Glasnow struck out three and walked three over three scoreless innings in a minor league rehab appearance on Saturday and was officially activated and then optioned to Triple-A on Monday. He doesn't appear likely to rejoin the Pirates until next week. The young right-hander originally landed on the disabled list in July due to shoulder discomfort. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:43 pm

  • Strop (knee) throws bullpen session
    Pedro Strop (knee) reported feeling good after throwing 25 pitches in a bullpen session on Monday.

    Advice: Strop underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee two weeks ago, but is already making encouraging progress. The original expectation was that he'd miss 4-6 weeks, but he appears primed to beat that timetable. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:33 pm
    15-Day DL
    Top 5, 3-1 vs Pit
     
  • O's option McFarland to Triple-A
    Orioles optioned LHP T.J. McFarland to Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: It was announced on Sunday that McFarland was designated for assignment, so this presumably means that he passed through optional waivers. The southpaw owns an ugly 6.93 ERA and 7/10 K/BB ratio over 24 2/3 innings in the majors this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:45 pm
    Not Active
    L, 5-1 vs Tor
     
  • Alex Cobb (elbow) to start for Rays on Friday
    Alex Cobb (elbow) will make his return to the Rays' rotation Friday against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: The wait is finally over, as Cobb will make his first start in the majors since September 28, 2014. The veteran right-hander posted a 6.65 ERA over eight starts during his minor league rehab assignment and should be considered a wait-and-see option in fantasy leagues. The Rays are expected to use a six-man rotation in September. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:42 pm
    60-Day DL
     
  • Marlins option Justin Nicolino to AAA level
    Marlins optioned LHP Justin Nicolino to Triple-A New Orleans.

    Advice: Nicolino yielded three runs on eight hits over six innings Sunday in a loss to the lowly Padres. He has a 5.48 ERA in 70 2/3 innings this season with Miami. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:51 pm

  • Boshers (elbow) set for rehab assignment
    Buddy Boshers (elbow) is set to begin a rehab assignment Monday with Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: Boshers has been on the disabled list since August 11 because of discomfort in his left elbow. An MRI taken two weeks ago showed no major structural damage and he should be back in the Minnesota bullpen within the next 5-7 days. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:48 pm
    15-Day DL
     
  • Mariners sign Al Alburquerque to minors deal
    Mariners signed RHP Al Alburquerque to a minor league contract.

    Advice: This deal was actually agreed upon last week. Alburquerque was released by the Angels on August 13 after posting a pedestrian 3.80 ERA, 1.56 WHIP, and 26/13 K/BB ratio across 23 2/3 innings with Triple-A Salt Lake. The 30-year-old right-hander is now working out of the bullpen at Triple-A Tacoma. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:51 am

  • Cardinals place Mike Leake (shingles) on DL
    Cardinals placed RHP Mike Leake on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 22, with shingles.

    Advice: Leake was diagnosed with the virus last week and had to be scratched from his scheduled start Saturday versus the Athletics. Top prospect Alex Reyes took that start instead, and will presumably get another turn this week in Cincinnati. There is no timetable for Leake's return, as shingles can be pretty unpredictable. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:26 am
    15-Day DL
     
  • Latos to be added to Nats roster Thursay
    Mat Latos will be added to the Nationals' active roster on Thursday, per FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

    Advice: Latos could have opted out of his contract with Washington on Monday, but he has agreed to stay on until major league rosters expand on September 1. He will then officially join the Nationals, presumably in a long relief or swingman role. The veteran right-hander holds a 1.06 ERA in 17 innings (three starts) with Triple-A Syracuse, but the peripherals aren't nearly as promising. He was cut by the White Sox in June after allowing 31 runs -- 29 earned -- over his last 36 innings. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:44 am

  • Pirates activate then option SP Tyler Glasnow
    Pirates activated RHP Tyler Glasnow from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: This might be nothing more than a procedural move with major league rosters due to expand September 1. Glasnow walked three but struck out six over three scoreless innings last Monday with Double-A Altoona. It's not clear whether his next start will be in Indianapolis or with Pittsburgh. The talented 23-year-old been out since July 24 because of right shoulder discomfort. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:19 am

  • Nicolino tosses quality start against Padres
    Justin Nicolino turned in a quality start in Sunday's loss to the Padres, yielding three runs on eight hits over six innings.

    Advice: Filling in for Andrew Cashner (blister), Nicolino walked one and failed to strike out a batter over his six innings of work. He kept the scoreboard clean and clear of runs until the fourth inning, when Ryan Schimpf burned him for an RBI triple and Luis Sardinas an RBI double. In 13 starts covering 70 2/3 innings, the 24-year-old southpaw has pitched to a 5.48 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 30/17 K/BB ratio. If Cashner can't make his next turn in the rotation, Nicolino would likely start in his place once more. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:34 pm

  • Alex Cobb (elbow) to start Friday or Saturday
    Alex Cobb (elbow) will rejoin the Rays' rotation on Friday or Saturday against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Cobb has completed his rehab from Tommy John surgery, although his rehab assignment did not go smoothly. The right-hander posted a 6.65 ERA over eight starts and had to be shut down for a while last month due to arm fatigue. Fantasy owners would be wise to give him a start or two to see how he looks before considering activating him. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:16 am
    60-Day DL
     
  • Lance McCullers (elbow) resumes throwing
    Lance McCullers (elbow) resumed a throwing program on Friday.

    Advice: He played catch Friday and said he felt fine the day after on Saturday. Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Saturday that it will be a while before McCullers can throw aggressively on flat ground or off a mound, so his return isn't imminent. Still, it's a nice step. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:30 am
    15-Day DL
    Bot 5, 2-0 vs Oak
     
  • T.J. McFarland designated for assignment
    Orioles designated LHP T.J. McFarland for assignment.

    Advice: McFarland was pummeled for four runs over two-thirds of an inning Saturday in his lone appearance after returning from the disabled list. He stands a good chance at clearing waivers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:17 am

  • Justin Nicolino recalled from Triple-A
    Marlins recalled LHP Justin Nicolino from Triple-A New Orleans.

    Advice: He's starting Sunday against the Padres in place of Andrew Cashner (blister). Depending on how Cashner recovers from his blister, it's possible Nicolino will be needed for more than one start. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:26 am
    Not Active
     
  • Marlins to call up LHP Nicolino
    The Marlins will call up left-hander Justin Nicolino to start Sunday against the Padres.

    Advice: He'll start in place of Andrew Cashner, who was scratched due to a blister. Nicolino owns a rough 5.57 ERA over 12 starts with the Marlins this season and can be avoided in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:43 pm
    Not Active
     
  • Rafael Montero to start Monday vs. Marlins
    Rafael Montero will start Monday against the Marlins.

    Advice: Montero was scratched from his start on Saturday in Double-A, so he was the obvious choice for the assignment. He'll be filling in for Jacob deGrom, who is being skipped for one turn in the rotation. Montero really struggled while pitching in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League this season, but he owns a 1.70 ERA and 38/18 K/BB ratio in 47 2/3 innings over eight starts in Double-A. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:35 pm
  • Cobb (elbow) makes latest rehab start
    Alex Cobb (elbow) allowed one run over four innings Saturday in his latest minor league rehab start with Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Cobb gave up five hits (including a home run) and walked none while striking out one. He threw 44 out of 58 pitches for strikes. It has been a long road back for the rehabbing right-hander, but his next start is expected to be in the majors. Cobb, who is making his way back from Tommy John surgery, hasn't pitched in the majors since 2014. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:57 pm
    60-Day DL
     
  • Leake scratched from start due to shingles
    Mike Leake was scratched from his scheduled start against the Athletics on Saturday due to shingles.

    Advice: It's unclear at the moment how much time the right-hander may miss. Rookie right-hander Alex Reyes will start in his place on Saturday and would likely occupy his rotation spot for as long as Leake is sidelined. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:18 pm
    15-Day DL
     
  • T.J. McFarland activated from disabled list
    Orioles activated LHP T.J. McFarland from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: McFarland has been out for the last two months with left knee tendinitis. He'll be used in low-leverage situations. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:42 pm
    Not Active
    L, 5-1 vs Tor
     
  • Cobb (elbow) to make one more rehab start
    Alex Cobb (elbow) will make one more minor league rehab start on Saturday.

    Advice: And then he should join the Rays' rotation for the final four weeks of the 2016 regular season. Cobb has registered a 7.64 ERA in seven rehab starts and doesn't look like a great fantasy option at the moment, but he could carry sneaky value into 2017 if his health cooperates. The 28-year-old right-hander hasn't appeared in a major league game since 2014 due to complications related to Tommy John surgery. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:57 pm
    60-Day DL
     
  • Alvarez (shoulder) set for rehab appearance
    Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) will throw an inning in the Arizona League on Saturday.

    Advice: It sounds like the Athletics are now preparing Alvarez to serve as a reliever down the stretch. The right-hander has been out all season because of complications related to last year's shoulder surgery. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:29 am
  • Glasnow (shoulder) moving his rehab to AAA
    Tyler Glasnow (shoulder) will move his rehab assignment to Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: He walked three but struck out six over three scoreless innings Monday with Double-A Altoona. Glasnow could rejoin the Pirates' starting rotation sometime next week if his start at Triple-A goes smoothly. The 23-year-old right-hander has been on the disabled list since July 24 because of shoulder discomfort. He had a 5.40 ERA, 1.44 WHIP, and 7/5 K/BB ratio over his first two major league starts spanning 8 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:18 am

  • Glasnow (shoulder) promising in rehab start
    Tyler Glasnow (shoulder) worked three scoreless innings Monday with Double-A Altoona.

    Advice: Glasnow walked three but struck out six in the promising rehab outing. He was lifted from a start at Altoona nine days ago after some coaches there noticed irregularities in his delivery, likely brought on by the right shoulder discomfort that sent him to the MLB disabled list on July 24. All was fine on that front Monday. "As the outing went on, I think his command improved," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Tuesday. "There was a little spray command in the first inning. He did throw all three pitches, his fastball — velocities were 93 to 95 (miles per hour) — he threw his curve ball, he threw his changeup. He threw his changeup more than anticipated, and they were pleased. As I said, as the outing got longer, he got better. That was a plus." Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:08 am

  • Manaea fans eight over seven innings in win
    Sean Manaea was superb in Tuesday's 9-1 win over the Indians, yielding one run on three hits over seven innings.

    Advice: Manaea induced eight strikeouts and walked two during this charmed outing. A Chris Gimenez solo home run in the sixth inning represented his only real spot of trouble. With the victory, Manaea improved to 5-8 with a 4.53 ERA and 1.27 WHIP. He will tango with the Astros on the road next time he toes the rubber. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:56 pm
  • Alvarez (shoulder) throws bullpen session
    Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session in front of A's coaches Tuesday.

    Advice: He worked in his slider (along with his fastball and changeup) and reported feeling good. Alvarez is still working his way back from shoulder surgery and has already encountered multiple setbacks, but he said he is hoping to pitch for Oakland before the end of the season. Even if it's in relief. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:29 pm
  • Leake dominates with seven scoreless vs. PHI
    Mike Leake fired seven scoreless innings Sunday in the Cardinals' rout of the Phillies.

    Advice: Leake gave up seven hits but they were all singles. He struck out eight and walked just one. This has been a very up and down first season with St. Louis for Leake, who will carry a 4.56 ERA and 1.27 WHIP into his next start at home against the Athletics. He's been good in stretches. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 2:00 pm
    15-Day DL
     
  • Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) throws off mound
    Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Sunday.

    Advice: It was only fastballs and changeups, but the right-hander felt good. Alvarez has encountered many twists and turns as he works his way back from shoulder surgery, but he hasn't given up hope of pitching this season. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 9:46 am
  • Glasnow (shoulder) resuming rehab assignment
    Tyler Glasnow (shoulder) will resume his rehab assignment with Double-A Altoona on Monday.

    Advice: He's slated to throw four innings and/or 65 pitches. Glasnow had a setback just a week ago when he felt renewed soreness in his right shoulder during a rehab start, but the Pirates are obviously convinced it was a minor setback. It's been nearly a month since Glasnow first injured his shoulder. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 8:42 am
