  • Tyler Saladino (back) ruled out for season
    Tyler Saladino (back) has been ruled out for the season.

    Advice: Saladino hasn't played in a week and the White Sox don't feel the need to push him at this point. Carlos Sanchez will continue to hold down second base. Rotoworld.com 35 minutes ago

  • Wilmer Difo hits first home run
    Wilmer Difo hit his first big-league homer Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Difo's first homer came in his 62nd major league at-bat. He was quite the disappointment in the minors this year, hitting just .259/.318/.354 as a 24-year-old in Double-A. He has speed and he can play both second and short, so he still profiles as a useful utilityman. Still, his chances of becoming a regular have taken a big hit. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:07 pm

  • Jesus Montero suspended 50 games for PEDs
    Jesus Montero has been suspended 50 games by Major League Baseball for testing positive for dimethylbutylamine.

    Advice: Montero has spent all of 2016 at Triple-A in the Blue Jays' organization, batting .317/.349/.438 with 11 homers. The former top prospect will turn 27 in November and his future in the majors is now looking as cloudy as ever. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:02 pm

  • Indians shoot down Brantley (shoulder) report
    The Indians have shot down a report from Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports that Michael Brantley (shoulder) could miss "significant time" next season.

    Advice: Heyman's report said that Brantley's rehab from a second right shoulder surgery could drag past Opening Day next year, but the Indians don't think that will be the case. "Our expectation is that he'll be ready for spring training," said president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti. "We were told after the second surgery that the timeline (for recovery) would be four to five months. As far as I know, nothing has changed." There's no reason to doubt the Indians' belief that Brantley will be ready to go for Opening Day, but the reality is there's a lot up in the air with him given how this year went.

  • Devon Travis (shoulder) back in Jays' lineup
    Devon Travis (shoulder) is back in the Blue Jays' starting lineup on Thursday night.

    Advice: Travis missed a handful of games after injuring his left shoulder in Monday's benches-clearing fracas with the Yankees. He is starting at second base and batting ninth Thursday versus Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:47 pm
  • Tomas scratched Thursday due to stiff neck
    Yasmany Tomas was scratched from the Diamondbacks' lineup Thursday with a stiff neck.

    Advice: Brandon Drury is in left field and Socrates Brito is now in right field for the afternoon tilt at Nationals Park. Tomas could very well remain limited over the regular season's final weekend. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:28 am

  • Brantley (shoulder) to miss portion of 2017?
    Sources tell Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports that Michael Brantley (shoulder) could miss "significant time" at the beginning of next season.

    Advice: Per these sources, doctors had to "re-anchor the muscle to the bone" during Brantley's most recent right shoulder surgery in mid-August. That procedure will come with another lengthy rehabilitation -- possibly much longer than the initial projection of four months. Brantley and the Indians are both refuting Heyman's report, for what it's worth. The 29-year-old outfielder appeared in only 11 games this season for Tribe after earning MVP votes in 2014 and 2015.

  • Wilson Ramos may also have meniscus tear
    According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, there may be meniscus tears in Wilson Ramos' right knee.

    Advice: Ramos has already been diagnosed with a torn ACL, but the extent of the damage could range well beyond that. The impending free agent catcher came down hard on his right knee Monday after jumping to catch a throw at home plate and will undergo major surgery at some point in the near future. This is obviously going to crush his open-market value despite a breakout 2016. Ramos, 29, batted .307/.354/.496 with 22 home runs and 80 RBI over 131 games for the NL East-champion Nationals.

  • Wong (shoulder) returns with pinch-hit 3B
    Kolten Wong (shoulder) hit a pinch-hit leadoff triple in the bottom of the ninth inning Wednesday, but the Cardinals weren't able to drive him in and fell 2-1 to the Reds.

    Advice: Wong was held out of the starting lineup yet again with shoulder discomfort, but his swing looked free and easy as he launched a ball off the top of the right field wall at Busch Stadium. He flew around the bases before sliding feet-first into third. But that is where Wong would remain, with Reds closer Raisel Iglesias inducing two groundouts and a shallow outfield fly from the Cardinals' next three batters. Wong should be able to make a start or two over St. Louis' final four regular season games. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:49 am

  • Marcus Semien hits 27th homer
    Marcus Semien hit his 27th homer Wednesday against the Angels.

    Advice: It was a three-run shot, giving him 73 RBI. Last year, Semien struggled mightily went men on base and had just 45 RBI despite hitting 15 homers and playing in 155 games. This year, he hasn't been any better offensively according to his rate starts (his OBP is down while his homers are up), but that he is much improved with men on has made him more valuable.

  • Hunter Renfroe homers again, knocks in four
    Hunter Renfroe went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and four RBI as the Padres edged the Dodgers 6-5 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Renfroe should have been up on July 21, not September 21, but at least he's used his very limited major league time to make a huge first impression; he's homered four times in his first five starts, and his two-run shot Wednesday sailed over the Western Metal Supply Co. building at Petco Park. That is the first time a player had done that in a live game. This all bodes well for Renfroe's chances of being penciled in as the Padres' everyday right fielder to open the 2017 season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:22 pm
  • Teixeira launches walkoff grand slam vs. Sox
    Mark Teixeira hit a walkoff grand slam Wednesday off Joe Kelly as the Yankees beat the Red Sox 5-3.

    Advice: It didn't stop the Red Sox from clinching the AL East, but it surely felt good for Teixeira, who will wrap up his career in four days unless the Yankees pull off a miracle and advance. With homers in consecutive games, Teixeira has upped his OPS to .660, his highest mark since early May. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:37 pm
  • Starling Marte (back) out of lineup once more
    Starling Marte (back) is being held out of the lineup again as the Pirates face the Cubs on Wednesday.

    Advice: Marte said on Tuesday that he is uncertain whether he will be able to start another game this season. He has been fighting through back tightness and back spasms for most of September. Josh Bell draws the start in right field and will bat second. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:17 pm

  • Kolten Wong to test tender shoulder in BP
    Kolten Wong will test his injured shoulder in pregame batting practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: Wong did not play in Tuesday's game against the Reds and he's out of the starting lineup Wednesday, but it sounds like he should be available off the bench for the Wild Card-hunting Redbirds. Wong injured his shoulder last week in Chicago when he slipped in left field. He was given a cortisone injection Monday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:28 pm

  • Travis (shoulder) on Jays' bench Wednesday
    Devon Travis (shoulder) is out again Wednesday.

    Advice: Travis injured his left shoulder Monday in the Blue Jays' benches-clearing brawl with the Yankees and remains day-to-day. Ryan Goins is at second base and Ezequiel Carrera is leading off Wednesday night against the Orioles and right-hander Chris Tillman. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:38 pm
  • Bregman (hamstring) batting second on Wed.
    Alex Bregman (hamstring) is batting second for the Astros on Wednesday against the Mariners.

    Advice: It will be the first start for Bregman since September 14, when he suffered a right hamstring strain while running the bases. Houston initially thought the 22-year-old top prospect might be done for the year, but he connected for a pinch-hit RBI single on Tuesday night to spark a big rally against Seattle and he will start at third base on Wednesday afternoon. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:37 am
  • Bregman (hamstring) returns with RBI single
    Alex Bregman (hamstring) smacked a pinch-hit RBI single Tuesday in the Astros' defeat of the Mariners.

    Advice: It was the first plate appearance in nearly two weeks for Bregman, who had been sidelined since September 14 because of a right hamstring strain. The initial diagnosis came with a timetable of 4-6 weeks, suggesting he was finished for the remainder of the 2016 regular season, but the 22-year-old top prospect made a swift recovery and could even start a few games before all is said and done. Bregman has a cool .797 OPS with eight home runs, 33 RBI, and 31 runs scored through his first 48 major league games. Impressive stuff all around. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:58 am
  • Renfroe homers twice, drives in seven vs. LAD
    Hunter Renfroe went off in Tuesday's 7-1 win over the Dodgers, launching a three-run home run and a grand slam to finish with seven RBI.

    Advice: Renfroe spaced out his damage. He swatted a three-run home run off Kenta Maeda in the first inning, then went silent until the eighth. At which point, all the noise in the world. The 24-year-old outfielder connected to clear the bases for the grand slam against Louis Coleman, boosting the Padres to a 7-1 advantage in the process. For those disinclined to do the math, Renfroe accounted for all seven of the Padres' runs in the game with his pair of home runs. Those were his second and third career major league homers. All of this damage has come in Renfroe's first 17 big league at-bats. Not too shabby. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:02 pm
  • Pence homers in offensive explosion
    Hunter Pence went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Rockies.

    Advice: This was an annihilation. A few fun statistics of note from the 12-3 win: The Giants collected nine extra-base hits in the contest, with only Angel Pagan failing to pick up an extra-base knock among regular batters. Included in that barrage, four triples (two by Brandon Crawford). Seven players finished with multiple hits. For his part, Pence connected for a solo home run in the fifth inning, going back-to-back with Buster Posey. This season, the veteran outfielder is hitting .294/.364/.463 with 13 homers and 56 RBI over 374 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:39 pm
  • Peralta homers, drives in four against Reds
    Jhonny Peralta went 3-for-4 with a home run, four RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Peralta hit a three-run jack in the fifth inning, one of the Cardinals' five home runs on the night. The homer was a big one for Peralta personally, as he hadn't gone yard since September 6. The 34-year-old has just eight homers and 29 RBI in total through 77 games, and he's slashing a pedestrian .259/.307/.415 in those games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:03 pm

  • Marte (back) might not play again this year
    Starling Marte (back) said he's not sure whether he will start another game this season.

    Advice: Marte tried to return from his lingering back injury late last week but still isn't feeling quite right. He described it Tuesday more as back "tightness" than spasms. A full month of rest is what Marte really needs, and he'll get it as soon as the regular season ends for the 77-80 Pirates. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:38 pm

    Kolten Wong is out of the Cardinals' lineup Tuesday due to a shoulder injury.

    Advice: Wong was given a cortisone injection and is "a day away" from being able to play defense, according to the Cardinals. He could be available to pinch-hit on Tuesday night against the visiting Reds. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:37 pm

  • Devon Travis day-to-day with shoulder issue
    Devon Travis (shoulder) is considered day-to-day.

    Advice: Travis got tangled up with some other players in Monday night's benches-clearing brawl with the Yankees, suffering an injury to his left shoulder that he then aggravated on a swing later in the game. It's not clear when he might return. Joaquin Benoit also suffered an injury -- a calf tear, to be exact -- in that pointless fracas Monday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:31 pm
  • Travis (shoulder) out of Jays' lineup Tuesday
    Devon Travis (shoulder) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Orioles.

    Advice: Travis left Monday's game against the Yankees with a left shoulder injury, but the severity isn't yet known. Darwin Barney is filling in at second base on Tuesday while Ezequiel Carrera will play right field and bat leadoff. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:44 pm
  • Starling Marte (back) out again Tuesday night
    Starling Marte (back) remains out of the Pirates' lineup again Tuesday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Nagging back spasms have kept Marte out of the lineup since Thursday. It's unclear if or when he'll be able to return. Matt Joyce is starting in right field and hitting fifth. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:20 pm

  • Wilson Ramos diagnosed with torn ACL
    Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Tuesday that Wilson Ramos was diagnosed with a torn ACL in his right knee.

    Advice: He's obviously done for the year and will require surgery. Ramos previously tore the ACL and MCL in the very same knee back in 2012. It's absolutely brutal timing, not only with the playoffs days away, but also with him on the verge of hitting free agency. The 29-year-old was poised for a big payday after hitting .307/.354/.496 with 22 homers and 80 RBI over 131 games this season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:11 pm

  • Wilson Ramos to undergo MRI on knee
    Wilson Ramos will undergo an MRI on his right knee on Tuesday morning.

    Advice: Ramos injured his knee after leaping to catch a throw at home plate in the sixth inning of Monday's game. It didn't look good, but we'll have to wait until Tuesday for the official diagnosis. Jose Lobaton would likely handle the bulk of the catching duties during the postseason if Ramos needs to miss significant time. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:18 pm

  • Travis (shoulder) makes early exit Monday
    Devon Travis left Monday's game against the Yankees with a left shoulder injury.

    Advice: Travis went 0-for-3 with a strikeout before leaving after five innings and could be seen wincing on a swing. The specifics of the issue aren't yet known, but it's worth noting that he had a pair of surgeries on his left shoulder last year. We should know more soon. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:49 pm
  • Mark Teixeira rips game-tying homer
    Mark Teixeira smacked a game-tying solo home run in Monday's comeback win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: The Jays called upon Jason Grilli to close it out with Roberto Usuna unavailable, and Teixeira drilled one over the right-field wall with one out to knot things up. After a Didi Gregorius single, Aaron Hicks then delivered a go-ahead blast. Teixeira now has 14 homers over 378 at-bats in his farewell season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:38 pm
  • Ramos exits game with apparent knee injury
    Wilson Ramos exited Monday's game against the Diamondbacks in the sixth inning with an apparent injury to his right knee.

    Advice: Well, that's no good. Ramos injured the knee after jumping to catch a throw at home plate and had to helped off the field by the training staff. It's worth noting that he tore the ACL and MCL in the very same knee back in 2012, so this is very troubling, especially with the playoffs and free agency approaching. The Nationals will have to cross their fingers for now. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:40 pm

  • Bregman (hamstring) not ruled out from return
    Astros manager A.J. Hinch hasn't ruled out Alex Bregman (hamstring) from returning this week.

    Advice: It was previously thought that Bregman was unlikely to return unless the Astros made a deep run into the playoffs, but he was able to make it through a full workout on Monday. If anything, he could get some peace of mind going into the winter. The outstanding rookie has been out since September 14 with a hamstring strain. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:16 pm
  • Bregman (hamstring) does baseball activity
    Alex Bregman (hamstring) did some baseball activities on the field Monday. did some running on the field today and took some ground balls and hit

    Advice: Bregman, out since September 14 with a right hamstring strain, did some running on the field in addition to taking grounders and hitting. He said things went well, but odds are we've seen the last of him this season, even if the Astros were to make a remarkable run this week and snag one of the Wild Card spots. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:50 pm
  • Marte (back) remains out of Pirates' lineup
    Starling Marte (back) remains out of the Pirates' lineup Monday versus the Cubs.

    Advice: Marte hasn't played since Thursday due to nagging back spasms. He's iffy for the final week, so fantasy owners should have a backup plan at the ready. Adam Frazier will make the start in left field and bat seventh against Kyle Hendricks. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:30 pm

  • Peralta drives home lone run in loss to Cubs
    Jhonny Peralta went 1-for-4 and plated the Cardinals' lone run in Sunday night's loss to the Cubs.

    Advice: His run-scoring single in the eighth inning got the Cardinals on the board, cutting their deficit in half at 2-1. That would be the extent of their offense though. It has been a disappointing and injury-plagued season for the veteran infielder who is now hitting .251/.298/.395 with seven homers and 25 RBI in his 75 games. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:24 pm

    Starling Marte (back) remained out of the Pirates' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Marte is a question mark for the rest of the season with nagging back spasms. Gregory Polanco is also on the bench Sunday, but he's just getting a breather. The Pirates have Sean Rodriguez and Josh Bell at the outfield corners. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:14 am

  • Yasmany Tomas pulled for not hustling
    Yasmany Tomas was pulled from Saturday's game against the Orioles for an apparent lack of hustle.

    Advice: Tomas failed to run hard to first base following a dropped third strike in the fourth inning. Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale wouldn't confirm it was the reason he pulled Tomas, nor did he confirm it last year for a similar incident involving Tomas. "It’s between he and I," Hale said. "That’s a personal thing. Yas has played his tail off all year for us. He’s one of the guys on this team I really love. That’s just between he and I." Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:43 am

  • Renfroe swats first big league homer Saturday
    Hunter Renfroe went 2-for-4, scored twice and hit his first major league home run on Saturday versus the Giants.

    Advice: He launched a solo homer off Madison Bumgarner in the fourth inning. He doubled and scored in the sixth. Renfroe hit 30 home runs at Triple-A this season. The 24-year-old former first round draft pick is getting his first cup of coffee in the majors this month. He will likely work his way into the Padres' starting lineup early next season.

  • Tyler Saladino (back) to see doctor on Monday
    White Sox manager Robin Ventura expects Tyler Saladino (back) will have his back checked out when the team returns home on Monday.

    Advice: He was scratched from Friday's lineup with back discomfort and is expected to miss the entire weekend series in Cleveland. It's been a rough injury month for Saladino, who just returned after missing three games with a calf issue earlier this week. The 27-year-old has hit .282 this year with eight homers, 38 RBI and 11 steals. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:41 pm

    Mark Teixeira is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Saturday's showdown against the Blue Jays.

  • Ramos homers in loss to Pirates
    Wilson Ramos went 2-for-6 with a solo homer in Friday’s loss to the Pirates.

    Advice: Ramos has had a quiet September, but he still has a quality .304/.351/.496 batting line to go along with 22 homers and 80 RBI. The 29-year-old has his eyes on the postseason for now, but he’s poised to cash in big on the free agent market this winter. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:30 pm

  • Bregman (hamstring) ran on treadmill Thursday
    Alex Bregman (hamstring) did some running on a treadmill Thursday.

    Advice: It was at a very low intensity, but it was the first time he's done any running since suffering a right hamstring strain on September 14. Bregman said Thursday that he's "hoping to come back sooner rather than later and trying to do anything I can to help contribute," but the reality is that the Astros would probably have to make a deep playoff run for him to have a chance to return. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:24 am
  • Starling Marte leaves with back tightness
    Starling Marte was forced to leave Thursday's game against the Brewers due to back tightness.

    Advice: It's the same issue that had sidelined him since September 5 prior to rejoining the lineup on Thursday. It's unclear how much time this may cause him to miss, but it would be very surprising to see him in the lineup on Friday. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:24 pm

  • Nats open extension talks with Wilson Ramos
    According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Nationals have initiated extension talks with Wilson Ramos.

    Advice: Heyman says the Nationals' first offer to Ramos "was somewhere in the range of $30 million over three years," which isn't going to come close to getting it done for a 29-year-old impending free agent catcher who's batting .303/.352/.491 with 21 homers and 79 RBI in 128 games this season. It's a light open market this winter, so Ramos figures to cash in big either with Washington or another club. Heyman hears there is currently a "lull in discussions" between Ramos and the Nats following that initial low-ball proposal. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:21 am

    Starling Marte (back) struck out as a pinch-hitter on Wednesday against the Brewers.

    Advice: It was the first plate appearance for Marte since September 5, more than two weeks ago. He could be nearing a return to the starting lineup as the Pirates prepare one last push for a National League Wild Card spot.

  • Padres promote Hunter Renfroe from El Paso
    Padres purchased the contract of OF Hunter Renfroe from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Renfroe was one of the top hitters in the Pacific Coast League this summer, slashing .306/.336/.557 with 30 homers and 105 RBI in 133 games for the El Paso Chihuahuas, whose season ended Tuesday in the Triple-A championship. The plan probably calls for him to make three or four starts over the Padres' final 11 games, which doesn't offer much fantasy appeal. Renfroe, the 13th overall pick in the 2013 MLB June Amateur Draft, will challenge for a starting job with San Diego leading into 2017. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:05 pm
  • Padres calling up Renfroe, Margot and others
    Padres manager Andy Green confirmed late Tuesday that the club is calling up prospects Hunter Renfroe, Manuel Margot, Austin Hedges, and Carlos Asuaje.

    Advice: We were hoping this might happen three weeks ago so that Renfroe and Margot -- both top-100 prospects -- might be of some fantasy use, but the El Paso Chihuahuas made a run all the way to the Triple-A championship before falling to the Yankees' Scranton/Wilkes-Barre affiliate on Tuesday night in Memphis. Renfroe, 24, batted .306/.336/.557 with 30 home runs and 105 RBI in 133 games this season at the Triple-A level. Margot, 21, hit .304/.351/.426 with six home runs and 30 stolen bases in 124 games. They'll both be appearing in the majors for the first time. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:06 am

  • Bregman (hamstring) likely done for season
    Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said Monday that Alex Bregman's hamstring injury usually requires 4-6 weeks of recovery time.

    Advice: Bregman just suffered the injury last Wednesday, so it's safe to say that we won't see him again during the regular season. Luhnow indicated that his timetable could potentially be pushed up, so there's a chance he could be in the mix if the Astros sneak into a Wild Card spot and make a push in the playoffs. But obviously that's asking a lot on all fronts. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:11 pm
  • Bregman (hamstring) remains sidelined
    Alex Bregman (hamstring) remains sidelined.

    Advice: Bregman strained his right hamstring last Wednesday and didn't travel with the Astros during their six-game roadtrip. Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Friday that it's the sort of injury that would normally require a stint on the 15-day disabled list, but there's no need to put him on there in September. Either way, he appears unlikely to play again this season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:39 pm
