  • Drew picks up two-run single against Pirates
    Stephen Drew went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Saturday's win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Drew had a big two-run single in the first inning to widen the Nats' early lead, and they never looked back. In his last four games, Drew is 6-for-15 with two doubles, two RBI and two runs scored, and with Daniel Murphy still sidelined it's likely the 33-year-old continues to get regular playing time as the season winds down. Drew is hitting .281/.345/.539 in 64 games this year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:56 pm
  • Forsythe hits 20-homer plateau for first time
    Logan Forsythe hit his 20th home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: He got there in legitimate fashion, taking all-everything closer Craig Kimbrel deep for a solo shot in the ninth inning. It's the first time in Forsythe's career that he's hit 20 homers in a season. The 29-year-old is batting .274/.344/.464 with 52 RBI, 75 runs scored and six steals to date.

  • Holt has RBI double, run scored against Rays
    Brock Holt went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Holt plated the first run of the game with a double in the second inning. The all-purpose 28-year-old is hitting .264/.326/.397 with seven homers, 34 RBI, 44 runs scored and four steals in 88 games this year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:34 pm

  • 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 Yesterday, 5:41 pm

  • Yangervis Solarte returns after wife's death
    Yangervis Solarte has rejoined the Padres.

    Advice: He hasn't played since his wife passed away from cancer last weekend. Solarte has had a strong season for the Padres, hitting .284 with a career-high 15 HR and 68 RBI. Ryan Schimpf handed third base during his absence. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:34 pm
  • Flores (wrist) could be done for the year
    ESPN New York's Adam Rubin reports Wilmer Flores (wrist) may be done for the season.

    Advice: He isn't close to swinging a bat and has already received two cortisone shots since going down with a bruised wrist two weeks ago. Flores could return if the Mets make a deep postseason run but it's a near certainty he won't be back for the final week of the regular season. Assuming that's the case, Flores will close out the 2016 campaign with 16 HR, 49 RBI and a .267 average across 307 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:46 pm

  • Jose Peraza clubs three-run homer in loss
    Jose Peraza clubbed a three-run homer as the Reds fell to the Brewers on Friday night in Milwaukee.

    Advice: Peraza swatted his go-ahead homer off of Zach Davies in the fifth inning, briefly giving the Reds a 3-1 advantage. He has settled in nicely atop the Reds lineup and with his 2-for-4 effort on Friday is now slashing .327/.349/.423 with three long balls and 24 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:12 pm

  • Prado delivers two-run double in loss
    Martin Prado delivered a two-run double in Friday’s loss to the Braves.

    Advice: His first-inning double gave the Marlins an early 2-0 lead, but they were held off the board the rest of the way. With seven homers, Prado hasn’t shown much punch this year, but he has driven in 73 runs to go along with a .308/.363/.418 batting line. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:57 pm

  • Solarte (personal) would like to return
    Yangervis Solarte (personal) would like to return this season, but Padres manager Andy Green said the infielder's situation remains "fluid."

    Advice: Solarte's wife, Yuliett, died this past Saturday from complications related to cancer. She was only 31. Obviously the Padres will give Solarte all the time he needs. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:04 am
  • Hernandez reaches five times, scores thrice
    Cesar Hernandez went 2-for-3 with three walks and three runs scored in Thursday's marathon loss to the Mets.

    Advice: Hernandez chipped in a single and a triple in the 11-inning contest, and it was the second time this year that he's reached base five times in a game. The 26-year-old has a sneaky nine-game hitting streak going, during which he's 13-for-37 (.351) with a pair of triples and eight runs scored. The good stretch has his overall line up to .293/.367/.398 in 146 games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:45 pm
  • Scooter Gennett rocks two-run homer in win
    Scooter Gennett went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Pirates.

  • Nick Franklin (hamstring) pinch-hit Wed.
    Nick Franklin (hamstring) popped out as a pinch-hitter on Wednesday versus the Yankees.

    Advice: Franklin had been inactive for six straight days because of a moderate left hamstring strain. He probably isn't going to make many starts over the Rays' final 11 regular-season games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:06 am

  • Sean Rodriguez hits 18th homer
    Sean Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI against the Brewers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Rodriguez has been treating NL pitchers like Gatorade coolers all season long, bashing 18 homers in just 267 at-bats. It's more likely a career year, but with his versatility, he'll be an interesting free agent this winter. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:35 pm

  • Peraza goes 2-for-4 with an RBI Wednesday
    Jose Peraza went 2-for-4 with an RBI as the Reds got blown out by the Cubs on Wednesday.

    Advice: His second inning single got Steve Selsky safely to the plate but catcher Tucker Barnhart got thrown out trying to score a second run. Peraza has hit very well this season while playing all over the field defensively. He has a .324/.346/.407 slash line with two home runs and 16 stolen bases in 63 games since getting the call.

  • Wilmer Flores (wrist) won't play on Thursday
    Mets manager Terry Collins has ruled out Wilmer Flores (wrist) for Thursday's game against the Phillies.

    Advice: Collins deemed the worry-level surrounding Flores' wrist as a "DEFCON 4," so that is somewhat disconcerting. The team had hoped that the 25-year-old infielder would be able to return to the lineup against Phillies southpaw Adam Morgan on Thursday. Flores is currently sidelined by a left wrist injury suffered in a collision at home plate on September 10. He has been given two cortisone shots in the intervening days, but Collins said Flores has not been able to swing a bat since the collision. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:26 pm

  • Adam Rosales homers, drives in four vs. ARI
    Adam Rosales went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run and four RBI in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Funky little batting line for Rosales due to the fact that two of his four RBI came via sacrifice flies. His two-run home run in the sixth inning was his 11th of the season. The veteran infielder has homered in two of his last three games and is slashing .233/.323/.485 with 11 homers and 32 RBI over 202 at-bats for the season as a whole. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:42 pm

  • Flores given second cortisone shot for wrist

    Advice: Flores hasn't appeared in a game for the Mets since suffering a bone bruise in an awkward home-plate collision with A.J.

Rivera is at second base and James Loney is at first base on Tuesday night against the Braves. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:13 pm

  • Franklin diagnosed with moderate hammy sprain
    Nick Franklin was diagnosed with a moderate strain of his left hamstring following an MRI.

    Advice: Franklin suffered the injury last Thursday. At this point, it's going to be tough for him to make it back this season. Steven Souza (hip) is also sidelined right now, so Mikie Mahtook figures to see regular playing time in right field over the final two weeks. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:41 pm

  • Nick Franklin to undergo MRI on hamstring
    Nick Franklin is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his left hamstring strain Monday.

    Advice: Franklin hasn't played since straining the hamstring last Thursday and he isn't making much progress on the side.

Franklin, 25, has registered an impressive .280/.343/.465 batting line in 53 games this summer for Tampa Bay. He missed time with a concussion in August. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:07 am

  • Derek Dietrich reaches three times
    Derek Dietrich went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a walk against the Phillies on Sunday.

    Advice: Dietrich started his first three games back from the disabled list Sept. 3-5, but this was just his third start in 13 days since. He's playing well enough to justify more at-bats; he's 9-for-24 with a homer, two doubles and three walks since coming back. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 2:24 pm

    Sean Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored to help the Pirates defeat the Reds 7-3 in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader.

    Advice: The homer was the fourth for Rodriguez in his last six games -- including his second Saturday, as he went deep in both ends of the doubleheader -- and he's got 16 homers and 50 RBI on the year. It'll go down as a career year for the 31-year-old, who's slashing .266/.349/.516 overall. Rotoworld.com Sep 17, 7:53 pm

    Yangervis Solarte was scratched from the Padres lineup on Friday due to a family issue.

    Advice: He left the club to go home and be with his family. There's no timetable for his return at the moment, but with the Padres long out of contention, he certainly won't be rushed. Alexi Amarista replaced him in Friday's lineup and could see extra run in his absence. Rotoworld.com Sep 16, 4:14 pm
  • Scooter Gennett goes deep in loss
    Scooter Gennett singled and smacked a two-run homer in Friday's loss to the Cubs.

    Advice: Gennett's bomb off of John Lackey gave the Brewers the lead in the seventh inning, but their bullpen eventually coughed it up.

  • Yangervis Solarte scratched from lineup

    Advice: Rodriguez hit a solo homer in the fifth inning and capped the Pirates' 15-run outburst with a two-RBI single in the ninth. He went 6-for-12 with two home runs in the four-game series against the Phils, starting three of the four games. The jack of all trades has been a quietly productive offensive player for the Bucs this year, batting .259/.343/.498 with 14 homers, 47 RBI and 40 runs scored in 124 games.
