  • Brad Peacock loses to Angels
    Brad Peacock surrendered seven runs -- five earned -- in 4 2/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Peacock had a nice outing against the Angels five days ago, but the rematch turned ugly, erasing a lot of the good he did in his first four starts after joining the Astros rotation this month (2.25 ERA in 20 IP). He'll make next to nothing next year, so the Astros will probably keep him around as an option for the fifth spot in their rotation. Still, they do have greater talents to pick from.

  • Edwin Jackson gives up five runs in loss
    Edwin Jackson was tagged for five runs in six innings Friday in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Jackson turned in some nice outings for the Padres, but the end result was still a 5.89 ERA in 13 starts. He'll have to settle for a minor league contract as a free agent this winter. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:01 pm
  • Merritt notches first major league victory
    Ryan Merritt notched his first major league win on Friday after tossing five innings of one-run ball against the Royals.

    Advice: Expectations were low for the assignment, as Merritt was simply filling in with Corey Kluber sidelined, but he was brilliant in his first major league start. The former 16th round pick held the Royals to just three hits while walking none and striking out four. He kept them off the board after an RBI single from Eric Hosmer in the first inning and retired the final 13 batters he faced. The Indians couldn’t have asked for much better.

  • Tyrell Jenkins leaves game with arm injury
    Tyrell Jenkins was removed from Friday's game against the Tigers with what has been diagnosed as ulnar neuritis in his right arm.

    Advice: Jenkins will be re-evaluated on Saturday, but it's safe to say that his 2016 season is finished. He finishes his rookie campaign with a 5.88 ERA and 26/33 K/BB ratio over 52 innings of work. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:51 pm

  • Ottavino converts his seventh save
    Adam Ottavino tossed a perfect ninth inning Friday against the Brewers for his seventh save of the season.

    Advice: Ottavino struck out two out of the three batters he faced. The 30-year-old is just 7-for-12 in save chances this season, but he has converted five out of his last six chances. He owns an impressive 2.42 ERA and 32/7 K/BB ratio over 26 innings in his first year back from Tommy John surgery. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:14 pm
  • Suter gives up four runs in spot-start
    Brent Suter gave up four runs over five innings in a loss to the Rockies on Friday.

    Advice: Tough assignment for a spot-start. Suter, who was filling in for the injured Taylor Jungmann, gave up 10 hits, including a two-run homer to Nolan Arenado. The 27-year-old has posted a 3.32 ERA and 15/5 K/BB ratio over 21 2/3 innings since his call-up in late August. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:14 pm
  • Reed strikes out side Friday vs. Phillies
    Addison Reed struck out the side in the eighth inning in Friday’s win over the Phillies.

    Advice: Reed had a rare clunker against the Phillies the last time he saw them on September 22, but he has bounced back with three straight scoreless appearances. He now owns a 1.86 ERA and 108/18 K/BB ratio over 92 innings since being acquired from the Diamondbacks last August. He’s been quite a find for Sandy Alderson. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:14 pm
  • Jake Buchanan fires five scoreless in victory
    Jake Buchanan earned his first victory of the season on Friday, firing five scoreless innings in a spot start against the Reds.

    Advice: Pressed into emergency duty for the injured Jason Hammel, Buchanan scattered just two hits and a walk while punching out three in the fine performance. He isn't going to be included on the postseason roster, but it's nice to see the right-hander finish his season on a high note. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:07 pm
  • Josh Smith pitches well in loss to Cubs
    Josh Smith pitched well in a losing effort against the Cubs on Friday, allowing two runs (one earned) on three hits over five-plus innings of work.

    Advice: Smith struck out one and walked one on the evening. He retired the first 12 batters that he faced in order but started to tire in the fifth inning, where he surrendered a solo homer to Ben Zobrist. He came back out for the sixth but was pulled after loading the bases. The right-hander finishes the 2016 campaign with a 4.68 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 48/26 K/BB ratio across 59 2/3 innings.

  • Luis Severino to start for Yankees Saturday
    Luis Severino will start for the Yankees on Saturday against the Orioles.

    Advice: He's taking the hill in place of Masahiro Tanaka who has been shut down for the year. Severino has appeared in 21 games (10 starts) for the Yankees this season, compiling a 5.75 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 63/23 K/BB ratio across 67 1/3 innings. He'll look to play spoiler against the division-rival O's on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:38 pm

  • Jake Buchanan to make spot start Friday
    Jake Buchanan will start on Friday versus the Reds.

    Advice: He's filling in for Jason Hammel, who was scratched due to right elbow tightness. Buchanan has made just one relief appearance for the Cubs this month but held a 4.34 ERA over 24 appearances -- 22 starts -- for Triple-A Iowa. He's not a desirable streaming option. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:55 am
  • Friedrich mired down by big sixth inning
    Christian Friedrich couldn't make it out of the sixth inning in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers, allowing five runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Friedrich surrendered an RBI double to Joc Pederson in the fifth inning, but the real killer frame was the sixth. He allowed four runs in that one. Over the course of 129 1/3 innings this season, the 29-year-old southpaw pitched to an underwhelming 4.80 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 100/52 K/BB ratio. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:59 pm
  • Phil Klein to make spot start Saturday
    Phil Klein will start on Saturday against the Mets.

    Advice: Jake Thompson has been shut down, so the Phillies needed a spot starter in what will be a bullpen game versus the Mets. Klein threw five innings in a spot start last month but hasn't gone more than 1 1/3 frames in September, so he won't be in long Saturday. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:35 pm
    10:05 am vs NYM
     
  • Josh Smith to start Friday versus Cubs
    Josh Smith will start for the Reds on Friday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Smith tossed three innings of one-run ball in a spot start versus the Cubs on September 20. The right-hander has been used primarily in relief this year and probably won't go more than four innings on Friday afternoon at Great American Ball Park. He should not be considered a viable fantasy streaming option. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:12 pm

  • Luis Perdomo gives up five runs in win
    Luis Perdomo surrendered five runs in five innings Wednesday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Perdomo gave up three homers, two of them coming in the first. It brought his total to 23 homers allowed in 146 2/3 innings on the season. Still, he picked up a win, leaving him 9-10 with a 5.71 ERA. He was surprisingly competent, if not exactly effective, after moving into the Padres rotation in mid-June, which qualifies as a success considering that he was a Rule 5 pick who never pitched above A ball prior to this year. He'll open next season back in the minors, probably in Triple-A, but he should again be a factor in the Padres rotation. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:20 pm
  • Bryan Mitchell blanks Red Sox
    Bryan Mitchell shut out the Red Sox for seven innings Wednesday, allowing just two hits.

    Advice: The Yankees have always been high on Mitchell, but he was essentially a non-factor this year after fracturing a toe in April. Having such a strong outing in his final regular-season start will help with the wishcasting for 2017, though we're still skeptical that he'll last as a starter. He'll likely compete for a rotation spot in spring training. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:35 pm

  • McAllister tosses two scoreless frames Wed
    Zach McAllister tossed two scoreless innings in a rainy start versus the Tigers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He gave up one hit, walked one and struck out one in the brief outing. The game was interrupted by rain multiple times and ended up being called after five frames. The Indians' starting rotation has been wracked by injuries of late, so McAllister was called upon to fill in a day after the Tribe clinched their division. He has been effective out of the bullpen this year. He has a 3.44 ERA with 54 strikeouts in 52 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:50 pm
  • Severino ejected from Monday's game
    Luis Severino was ejected from Monday's game against the Blue Jays in the second inning.

    Advice: Severino grazed Josh Donaldson in the elbow with a pitch in the bottom of the first inning and Blue Jays hurler J.A. Happ answered by hitting Chase Headley with a pitch in the top of the second. Severino responded by hitting Justin Smoak with a pitch in the bottom of the frame, which led to a benches-clearing brawl. Yankees manager Joe Girardi, pitching coach Larry Rothschild, and bench coach Rob Thomson have also been ejected. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:49 pm

  • Severino limited to around 50 pitches Mon.
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Luis Severino will be limited to around 50 pitches on Monday.

    Advice: Severino has been pitching out of the bullpen this month, but he's making a spot start in place of Masahiro Tanaka (forearm) for Monday's game with the Blue Jays. Most fantasy owners can skip this matchup. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:46 pm
    1:05 pm vs Bal
     
  • Peacock yields one run in five innings Sat.
    Brad Peacock held the Angels to one run in five innings, allowing only one hit and two walks while striking out seven batters on Saturday but had to settle for a no-decision.

    Advice: His bullpen got hammered to blow the game in the late innings. The only hit he allowed was an RBI double to Albert Pujols with Mike Trout aboard. He pitched very well but was removed after only 69 pitches. This was just his fifth start and the Astros didn't want to push him too hard. He owns a great 2.67 ERA after 27 innings. He has yet to earn a win or a loss this year. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:17 pm
  • Edwin Jackson earns win over Giants
    Edwin Jackson beat the Giants on Friday after allowing two runs in six innings.

    Advice: The Giants struggled to get to Jackson even though he walked five batters. It was a carbon copy of Jackson's first start for the Padres on July 17, when he allowed two earned runs in 6 1/3 innings in defeating the Giants. He walked five in that one, too. Jackson is 5-5 with a 5.75 ERA in 12 starts for the Padres. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:03 am
  • Mitchell goes six innings in loss to Jays
    Bryan Mitchell gave up three runs (one earned) over six innings Friday in a loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Mitchell ran into all sorts of trouble early on in this one, so it’s impressive that he managed to make it through six innings. All told, he gave up six hits and four walks while striking out two batters. Mitchell has posted a 4.50 ERA and 9/7 K/BB ratio in 18 innings through four starts since being recalled by the Yankees. He’s not a fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:39 pm

  • Christian Friedrich loses shutout in eighth
    Christian Friedrich faltered late in Thursday's loss to the Giants, surrendering two runs on three hits over seven-plus innings.

    Advice: Friedrich and Giants starter Jeff Samardzija were locked in a fantastic pitcher's duel over the first seven innings, with both pitchers posting goose eggs. The Padres' issues began when Friedrich trotted back out to start the eighth inning. He surrendered a double and a single to open the frame. Both of those runners would come around to score after he was lifted from the proceedings. For the season, the 29-year-old southpaw has pitched to a 4.66 ERA and 1.42 WHIP. He will finish out his season with a home start against the Dodgers next time he toes the rubber. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:20 pm
  • Luis Perdomo allows three runs in loss
    Luis Perdomo yielded three runs in seven innings Wednesday in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Perdomo remains awfully raw, but it's impressive that he's managing to hold his own for the most part. Since mid-June, he has a 4.26 ERA and a 72/26 K/BB ratio over 105 2/3 innings in 17 starts. That's a massive improvement on the 9.50 ERA he had previously. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:47 pm
  • Smith yields on run in three innings in start
    Josh Smith allowed a run over three innings of work in a spot start Tuesday against the Cubs.

    Advice: In a bit of a cruel twist, it was Smith, who was actually pretty good, that ended up taking the loss. Meaningless statistics aside, the 29-year-old gave up three hits and walked two in his first start of the year. Smith should go back to being a reliever moving forward. He'll take take a 4.86 ERA with him to the bullpen. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:31 pm
    1:10 pm vs ChC
     
  • Brad Peacock solid versus A's
    Brad Peacock allowed two runs and three hits over 5 1/3 innings Monday against the A's.

    Advice: Unfortunately, two of the three hits were homers. Still, it was a decent outing against an offense that has been scorching recently. Peacock will get the Angels at home next, making him a decent streaming option. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:15 pm
