  • Gurriel (hamstring) lines out as pinch-hitter
    Yulieski Gurriel (hamstring) lined out as a pinch-hitter on Wednesday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Gurriel was held out of the Astros' starting lineup for the third straight game due to tightness in his right hamstring. It's something he came down with in his major league debut Sunday versus the Orioles. Gurriel should be ready to rock for the opening of a three-game weekend series Friday night against the Rays.

  • Saladino (back) singles, steals base
    Tyler Saladino (back) singled in three at-bats and stole a base on Wednesday.

    Advice: Saladino had missed four straight games due to back soreness. It obviously wasn't anything too serious. He's hitting .258/.295/.385 with 10 steals in 70 games this season as a utilityman for the White Sox. Rotoworld.com 37 minutes ago

  • Peterson (neck, shoulder) returned Wed.
    Jace Peterson (neck, shoulder) was 1-for-2 with two walks and a run scored on Wednesday.

    Advice: Peterson had been held out of the Braves' starting lineup for two games due to tightness in his neck and shoulder. The 26-year-old is batting .256/.354/.386 in 86 total games this season for last-place Atlanta. Rotoworld.com 39 minutes ago
  • Brock Holt (oblique) hitless in return Wed.
    Brock Holt (oblique) went hitless in three at-bats Wednesday in his return to the Red Sox lineup.

    Advice: It was the first game in five days for Holt, who has been battling oblique tightness. He might be looking at a bigger workload for the stretch run with starting left fielder Andrew Benintendi (knee, ankle) possibly done for the season. Chris Young will also draw starts in left, but he struggles against right-handed pitching. Rotoworld.com 43 minutes ago

  • Reddick (finger) goes 0-for-3 in return Wed.
    Josh Reddick went 0-for-3 (finger) in his return to the Dodgers' lineup on Wednesday.

    Advice: Reddick had been held out two games after jamming his right middle finger while having room service delivered at the Dodgers' team hotel in Cincinnati on Sunday. The 29-year-old outfielder is batting just .143/.211/.157 in 76 plate appearances so far with Los Angeles. Rotoworld.com 48 minutes ago
  • Jake Lamb goes 3-for-6, homers
    Jake Lamb went 3-for-6 with a homer and scored the winning run in the 11th as the Diamondbacks edged the Braves 10-9 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Lamb doubled, advanced to third on a wild pitch and then scored the winning run on Brandon Drury's sac fly. The homer in the fifth inning was his 25th of the year. He has five hits the last two days to snap out of an ugly 2-for-46 slump. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:37 pm
  • Enrique Burgos gives up four runs in ninth
    After entering the ninth with a 9-5 lead, Enrique Burgos gave up four runs without retiring a batter Wednesday against the Braves.

    Advice: Burgos just got the closer gig from Jake Barrett last week, but he's probably thrown it away now (he also blew a save on Monday). The Diamondbacks could go back to Barrett or turn to Daniel Hudson, who has put together a nice August following his July implosion. We'd say Hudson is worth a shot. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:45 pm
  • Rich Hill goes six scoreless in Dodgers debut
    Finally making his Dodgers debut, Rich Hill earned a win after shutting out the Giants for six innings on Wednesday.

    Advice: Hill allowed five hits, all of them singles, and walked none to outduel Johnny Cueto in what ended up being a 1-0 game. He came out after 81 pitches, which seemed appropriate after his lengthy DL stint due to a blister. The veteran left-hander should be able to throw closer to 100 pitches next time out against the Rockies. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:11 pm
  • Justin Turner hits 24th homer
    Justin Turner went 2-for-3 and homered to account for the only run in the Dodgers' win over the Giants on Wednesday.

    Advice: Turner is up to 24 homers in 485 plate appearances this year. For the Mets in 2011, he had four homers in 487 plate appearances. Legitimately one of the NL's best players the last three years, Turner is going to be a fascinating free agent this winter. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:07 pm
  • Miggy collects four hits and homer vs. Twins
    Miguel Cabrera went 4-for-5 with a home run and two RBI to lead the Tigers to a 9-4 victory over the Twins on Wednesday.

    Advice: His solo blast in the first inning opened the scoring. He then contributed an RBI double in the third inning before adding another double and a single. The future Hall of Famer is batting .313/.386/.552 with 28 home runs, 80 RBI, and 71 runs scored in 124 games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:54 pm
  • Boyd notches win in quality start vs Twins
    Matt Boyd struck out seven while yielding three runs in six innings to earn a win versus the Twins on Wednesday.

    Advice: It wasn't always pretty as he served up home runs to Robbie Grossman and Brian Dozier. Luckily they were both solo blasts that didn't do excessive harm. The win boosts his record to 5-2 with a 3.98 ERA after 13 starts and two relief appearances. His 64 to 24 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 74 2/3 innings at the age of 25 gives him some intrigue as a middle-of-the-rotation streamer with upside. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:48 pm
  • Jacob deGrom gives up five runs in loss
    Jacob deGrom surrendered five runs and 12 hits in 4 2/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: DeGrom has followed up a couple of awesome months with a pair of ugly starts the last six days. He gave up three homers tonight after allowing a total of 12 in 22 starts coming in. It doesn't seem like his stuff has fallen off suddenly, so let's assume he'll bounce back next time out when he faces the Marlins. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:29 pm
  • Stephen Piscotty hits 18th homer
    Stephen Piscotty finished 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI in Wednesday's rout of the Mets.

    Advice: Piscotty has four homers and 10 RBI in his last 10 games. His average and OBP have slipped, but he's remained pretty valuable anyway. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:25 pm
  • James Loney goes 0-for-4 in loss
    James Loney went 0-for-4 in the loss to the Cardinals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Loney won some fans in New York after a solid start replacing James Loney, but his OPS is under .700 now and he's driven in all of 26 runs in 71 games (and scored a total of 21 times). He's not helping. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:18 pm
  • Machado finishes 4-for-6 with two-run bomb
    Manny Machado went 4-for-6 with a homer and four total RBI to lead the Orioles over the Nationals 10-8 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Machado's two-run bomb in the first inning set the tone for the high-scoring night. He then added run-scoring singles in the second and eighth innings. The four hits raised his batting average to .306 in 494 at-bats. The home run was his 29th. Machado has scored 87 runs and driven in 78. He has yet to steal a base after swiping 20 last year, but that's kind of a side concern at this point for his fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:13 pm
  • Rich Hill (finger) activated from Dodgers DL
    Dodgers activated LHP Rich Hill from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Hill came over to the Dodgers from the A's before the trade deadline, but he had yet to actually start for them due to a blister on his left hand. That will be remedied on Wednesday evening when he toes the rubber against the Giants. The veteran southpaw last pitched on July 17. Prior to the burdensome injury, he held a 2.25 ERA across 14 starts. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:38 pm
  • Gurriel (hamstring) remains out Wednesday
    Yulieski Gurriel (hamstring) remains absent from the Astros' lineup on Wednesday.

    Advice: Gurriel has now started just one of four games since joining the active major league roster on Sunday. He left his MLB debut with tightness in his right hamstring and is still apparently experiencing discomfort. This is probably a good time for a reminder that the Cuban slugger is 32 years old. Alex Bregman will start at third base again and bat second Wednesday versus Pirates ace Gerrit Cole. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:19 am

  • Reddick (finger) draws walk, scores run
    Josh Reddick (finger) drew a walk and scored a run as a pinch-hitter on Tuesday.

    Advice: Reddick was held out of the Dodgers' starting lineup for the second straight game after jamming his right middle finger while having room service delivered in Cincinnati on Sunday. Including that walk on Tuesday night against the Giants, the 29-year-old outfielder is batting .149/.219/.164 in 73 plate appearances with Los Angeles. Maybe he can finish strong. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:44 am
  • Lamb's two-run double not enough for victory
    Jake Lamb went 2-for-4 with a two-run double in Tuesday's loss to the Braves.

    Advice: Lamb drove in two with a ground rule double in the third inning. He finished the evening with a pair of two-baggers, giving him 24 for the season as a whole. In addition, Lamb is slashing a shiny .262/.338/.535 with 24 homers and 77 RBI across 409 at-bats. On the whole, it has been a brilliant breakout year for the 25-year-old infielder. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:42 pm
  • Saladino still sidelined by back discomfort
    Tyler Saladino missed a fourth straight start Tuesday due to back soreness.

    Advice: But the 27-year-old infielder did say Tuesday that it's "feeling better." Saladino hasn't appeared in a game for the White Sox since last Thursday. He had been serving as their primary starter at second base with Brett Lawrie (hamstring, quad, knee) on the disabled list. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:56 pm
    5:10 pm vs Sea
     
  • Josh Reddick (finger) remains sidelined Tues.
    Josh Reddick (finger) remains out of the Dodgers' starting lineup on Tuesday night.

    Advice: Reddick jammed his right middle finger on Sunday night while having room service delivered and sat out Monday afternoon's series finale in Cincinnati. He was able to take batting practice on Tuesday evening, which is obviously a strong indication that the injury is not serious. Rob Segedin will start in right field and bat seventh Tuesday versus Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:32 pm
  • Gurriel (hamstring) remains out Tuesday night
    Yulieski Gurriel (hamstring) is out of the Astros' starting lineup again on Tuesday night.

    Advice: Gurriel left his MLB debut on Sunday with right hamstring tightness and was limited to pinch-hitting duties on Monday. His status appears to be the same for Tuesday. Alex Bregman is starting at third base and batting second versus Pirates right-hander Ivan Nova. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:05 pm
    Day-to-Day
     
  • Hill (blister) to make Dodgers debut Wednesday
    Rich Hill (blister) will start Wednesday's game against the Giants.

    Advice: At long last, Hill is finally ready to make his Dodgers' debut after missing over a month with a painful blister. Hill has pitched brilliantly when healthy this year, providing a stellar 2.25 ERA over 14 starts. Ross Stripling was expected to lose his spot in the Dodgers' rotation upon Hill's return but he might stick around now that Scott Kazmir is dealing with back and neck issues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:57 am
  • Peterson (neck, shoulder) returns as pinch-hitter
    Jace Peterson (neck, shoulder) struck out as a pinch-hitter in Monday night's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: He was originally in the starting lineup but was scratched prior to the game after feeling tightness in his neck and shoulder. Peterson hurt himself running into the center field wall in Sunday's series finale against Washington. He should be available off the bench Tuesday night but it's unclear if he's ready to return to the starting lineup. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:57 am
  • Gurriel (hamstring) appears as pinch-hitter
    Yulieski Gurriel (hamstring) grounded out as a pinch-hitter Monday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Gurriel exited his MLB debut on Sunday because of hamstring tightness, but he's expected to be back in the starting lineup Tuesday. The Astros don't have the DH available under National League rules, so look for him to either play third base or left field. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:41 am
    Day-to-Day
     
  • Enrique Burgos blows save
    Giving the ninth with a one-run lead, Enrique Burgos gave up a homer to Freddie Freeman and took a blown save Monday.

    Advice: Burgos got the win when the Diamondbacks came back and scored in the bottom of the ninth. He's taken three blown saves in his last four appearances, but this is the first of those that have come in the ninth. He could get the Diamondbacks' next save chance anyway. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:20 pm
  • Gurriel available off bench Monday
    Yulieski Gurriel is available off the bench Monday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Gurriel left his MLB debut Sunday with some tightness in his hamstring, but it's not considered serious. The Astros don't have the DH available for their series against the Pirates, but Gurriel is likely to be back in the lineup Tuesday either at third base or in left field. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:52 pm
    Day-to-Day
     
  • Peterson scratched from Monday's lineup
    Jace Peterson was scratched from Monday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Peterson is dealing with some soreness after colliding with the wall during Sunday's game. He expects to be ready to play Tuesday. Chase d’Arnaud will start in his place at second base on Monday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:21 pm
  • Reddick got finger caught in door
    Josh Reddick said after Monday's game that he injured his right middle finger Sunday night when he got his hand caught in a door while ordering room service.

    Advice: Because his tenure with the Dodgers hasn't been rough enough already. Reddick was scratched from Monday's lineup as a result and called the injury "rock bottom." The 29-year-old is batting just .152/.211/.167 through 71 plate appearances since being acquired by the Dodgers. It's unclear when he'll be ready to return. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:45 pm
  • Yulieski Gurriel not in Monday's lineup
    Yulieski Gurriel is not in Monday's lineup against the Pirates.

    Advice: Gurriel went 1-for-2 with a double and a walk in his MLB debut Sunday before leaving with tightness in his right hamstring. He's considered day-to-day and will sit with the DH unavailable under National League rules. He could get a start a third base during the series, but Alex Bregman is starting there Monday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:04 pm
    Day-to-Day
     
  • Reddick scratched Monday with jammed finger
    Josh Reddick was scratched from the Dodgers' starting lineup on Monday due to a jammed middle finger on his right hand.

    Advice: Andrew Toles will start in his place against Reds right-hander Homer Bailey. Reddick has been a disappointment so far with Los Angeles, slashing .152/.211/.167 with zero homers and zero RBI in 71 plate appearances. He said he's unsure how or when he suffered the jammed finger. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:55 am
  • Justin Turner out of Dodgers lineup Monday
    Justin Turner is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup Monday afternoon against the Reds.

    Advice: Rob Segedin is starting at third base and batting eighth versus Reds right-hander Homer Bailey. This appears to be a routine day of rest for Turner, who's batting .320 with a 1.033 OPS so far in the second half. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:04 am
  • Gurriel leaves debut with hamstring tightness
    Yulieski Gurriel left his MLB debut against the Orioles with tightness in his right hamstring.

    Advice: After sitting through a lengthy rain delay, the right hamstring tightened up on the Cuban slugger. He's considered day-to-day for now, though Gurriel said that he'll be in the lineup on Monday night in Pittsburgh. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:08 pm
    Day-to-Day
     
  • Jace Peterson ends extras with walk-off homer
    Jace Peterson hit a solo walk-off home run to end Sunday's 7-6, 10-inning win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Peterson also had an infield single in the sixth inning. He improved on that little hit -- and then some -- by clocking the game-winning home run off Shawn Kelley with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning. For the season, the 26-year-old second baseman has hit to a .255/.348/.389 triple-slash with seven homers and 22 RBI across 247 at-bats. Despite Sunday's heroics, Peterson holds no fantasy intrigue. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:45 pm
  • Astros recall Yulieski Gurriel from Triple-A
    Astros recalled 3B Yulieski Gurriel from Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Gurriel will make his major league debut in the designated hitter spot against the Orioles. Most of his playing time figures to come at third base, although he did make one start in left field in the minors. Alex Bregman might now see most of his starts in left. Gurriel batted an underwhelming .250/.262/.429 with two homers over 15 minor league games, but the 32-year-old has a seasoned bat and could hit the ground running with the Astros. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:29 am
    Day-to-Day
     
  • Burgos strikes out two, snares first save
    Enrique Burgos struck out two and walked one in the ninth inning to earn his first save of the season on Saturday versus the Padres.

    Advice: Burgos may have become the current occupant of the Diamondbacks' musical chair at closer. He is not a great option but everyone else in their bullpen has tried and failed to hold the job. Burgos has a good strikeout rate but walks have been a real problem throughout his career, even in the minors. He has a 3.07 ERA with 31 punchouts and 15 walks in 29 1/3 innings. Owners should grab him if he is available but don't expect him to run away with the job for long. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:01 pm
  • Astros to promote Yulieski Gurriel on Sunday
    Yulieski Gurriel will be recalled from Triple-A Fresno on Sunday.

    Advice: The Astros' free agent prize from Cuba is finally ready to make his big league debut. Gurriel mostly played third base during his 15-game stint in the minor leagues though he did make one start in left field. He'll serve as the DH in his debut Sunday against the Orioles. Gurriel hit .250 in the minors with two homers and 14 RBI in 56 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:13 pm
    Day-to-Day
     
  • Tyler Saladino still out with sore back
    Tyler Saladino is dealing with a sore back.

    Advice: Saladino wasn't in Saturday's lineup and it looks like he's iffy for Sunday as well. The 27-year-old has played a utility role for the White Sox this season, appearing at seven different positions. Consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:56 pm
    5:10 pm vs Sea
     
  • Slumping Reddick not in Saturday's lineup
    Josh Reddick is not in the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Reds.

    Advice: Manager Dave Roberts said Reddick has been pressing lately and he wanted to give him a day to recharge. The 29-year-old has hit just .164 since joining the Dodgers at the trade deadline. Rookie Rob Segedin will hold down the fort in right field while batting fifth against Reds lefty Brandon Finnegan. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:45 pm
  • Holt (oblique) getting the day off Saturday
    Brock Holt (oblique) is not in the Red Sox lineup Saturday against the Tigers.

    Advice: Holt has been battling oblique tightness for a few days now and was unable to finish Friday night's game. Despite the injury, Holt should be available off the bench on Saturday. Holt opened the year as Boston's starting left fielder but was moved to a utility role when the Red Sox called up top prospect Andrew Benintendi. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:24 pm

  • Brock Holt leaves with left oblique soreness
    Brock Holt was forced to leave Friday's game against the Tigers with left oblique soreness.

    Advice: Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated that Holt only feels the injury when he throws. It wouldn't be surprising to see him rest on Saturday as a precautionary measure, though he could be available as a pinch hitter or runner off of the bench. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:59 am

  • Reddick singles, draws walk in loss
    Josh Reddick went 1-for-4 with a walk and a strikeout in Friday’s loss to the Reds.

    Advice: Reddick is now batting .164/.227/.180 with zero homers and zero RBI through his first 66 plate appearances with the Dodgers. He has one double and nine singles out of his 10 hits with his new club. It has been a rough start for the impending free agent, but we’re expecting better things down the stretch. The plan calls for him to get a scheduled day off on Saturday to clear his head. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:53 pm
  • Hill (blister) expected to start next week
    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Friday that Rich Hill (blister) is "penciled" into the rotation next week.

    Advice: We've heard that a few times before. Hill got through a simulated game on Thursday with no issues, so unless he has yet another setback with his blister it appears he'll finally make his Dodgers' debut sometime next week. He last started on July 17, when he was still a member of the Athletics. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:31 pm
  • Enrique Burgos moving into closer role?
    Enrique Burgos holds a 0.87 ERA and 23/10 K/BB ratio over 20 2/3 relief innings since being recalled last month.

    Advice: He hasn't earned any saves yet over that stretch, but Jake Barrett has struggled of late and it looks like Burgos might move into the ninth inning. The 25-year-old hasn't given up an earned run in his last 13 appearances, although he did serve up a bases-clearing double Thursday (all three runs were charged to Barrett). Burgos is worth a speculative pick-up in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:53 am
  • Giants rock deGrom for eight runs in 5 IP
    Jacob deGrom was shelled in Thursday's 10-7 loss to the Giants, surrendering eight runs on 13 hits over five innings.

    Advice: After tossing three scoreless frames, deGrom ran into trouble and then some. He coughed up five runs in the fourth inning and another three in the fifth before his evening was mercifully ended. The start bumped his ERA from 2.30 to a still-respectable 2.73 mark. DeGrom also holds a 1.11 WHIP and 134/30 K/BB ratio across 22 starts. Thursday's result wasn't particularly appealing, but sometimes you just don't have it. He will try to rebound in a road date with the Cardinals next time he toes the rubber. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:51 pm
  • Turner homers in second straight versus Phils
    Justin Turner went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run against the Phillies on Thursday.

    Advice: Stop me if you've heard this one: Justin Turner is on fire. That's not a ginger joke, but rather a nod to the 31-year-old's recent stretch in which he's hit four homers in his last eight games, including two in a row. Turner now has 23 homers on the year -- 20 of which have come since June 7 -- and 72 RBI, batting .278/.345/.516 through 113 games. He's been an incredible find for the Dodgers these past three seasons. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:03 pm
  • Machado homers, drives in three versus Astros
    Manny Machado went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in a win over the Astros on Thursday.

    Advice: Machado swatted one of the Orioles' six homers on the evening. The dinger was his 27th of the season, giving him 72 RBI and 83 runs scored. He's cooled from his early season pace -- how could he not have, batting .334 with a 1.001 OPS through June -- but the 24-year-old is now hitting .304/.361/.552 overall. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:54 pm
  • Gurriel to start in left field Thursday night
    Yulieski Gurriel will start in left field Thursday for Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Well that's an interesting development. The expectation was that Gurriel would only play third base during his rehab assignment but it looks like the Astros are going to try him in the outfield. Gurriel has some outfield experience from his playing days in Cuba and got some reps there when he worked out for the Astros prior to signing. Moving Gurriel to the outfield full time would allow top prospect Alex Bregman to remain at third base. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:35 pm
    Day-to-Day
     
  • Miguel Cabrera knocks in run in victory
    Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-3 and drove in his 1,000th run as a Tiger in Thursday's 4-3 defeat of the Red Sox.

    Advice: Cabrera singled in a run as part of a three-run rally that gave the Tigers the lead in the eighth. He's driven in 1,000 runs in 1,337 games since joining the Tigers and 1,533 runs in 2,057 games overall. He's 52nd on the all-time RBI list and moving up steadily. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:53 pm
  • Matt Boyd holds Red Sox to one run
    Matt Boyd held the Red Sox to one run in six innings Thursday in a no-decision.

    Advice: Boyd took advantage of facing a tired lineup missing both David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia and avenged one of the worst outings of all-time; last July, in his only previous start against Boston, he gave up seven runs without retiring a batter. Boyd has a nice 2.06 ERA in seven starts and a relief appearance since the beginning of July. We don't think he'll keep it up, but he's been a big help to the Tigers of late. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:50 pm
  • Miguel Cabrera (biceps) goes 0-for-4
    Miguel Cabrera (biceps) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in his return to the Tigers' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Cabrera made an early exit from Monday's series opener against the Royals with a left biceps strain and he was held out of Tuesday's game. Maybe he should have taken one more day off. The veteran slugger is slashing .307/.381/.545 with 27 home runs and 77 RBI in 118 games this season for Detroit. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:30 am
  • Brock Holt goes 3-for-3 against Orioles
    Brock Holt went 3-for-3 with a double as the Red Sox's third baseman on Wednesday.

    Advice: Shaw hadn't started at third base all season until Aug. 7. Now he's done so on back-to-back days, in large part because Hanley Ramirez is away and Travis Shaw is playing first. Still, Holt makes more sense at third than Aaron Hill against a left-hander and there's a decent chance he'll outproduce Shaw the rest of the way. He should remain a factor at the hot corner. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:51 pm

  • Rich Hill (blister) to throw sim game Thurs.
    Rich Hill (blister) is scheduled to throw a simulated game on Thursday in Arizona.

    Advice: Dodgers manager Dave Roberts expressed hope after the workout that Hill might return at some point during next week's home series against the struggling Giants, which runs from Tuesday to Thursday. Hill last started on July 17, when he was still a member of the Athletics. A pesky blister on his left hand has caused his stay on the disabled list to last for a month, with at least one more week yet to follow. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:20 pm
  • Turner (hand) returns to LAD lineup Tuesday
    Justin Turner (hand) is back in the Dodgers' starting lineup on Tuesday against the Phillies.

    Advice: Turner missed two games with a bruised right hand. He is starting at third base and batting third for the Dodgers on Tuesday night versus righty Vince Velasquez. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:48 pm
  • Miguel Cabrera (biceps) out of lineup Tuesday
    Miguel Cabrera (biceps) is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Royals.

    Advice: Cabrera made an early exit from Monday's game due to a left biceps strain. It's not considered serious, but the Tigers aren't going to rush him back into the lineup. Jarrod Saltalamacchia will start in his place at first base. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:37 pm
  • Miggy Cabrera day-to-day with biceps strain
    Miguel Cabrera is day-to-day with a left biceps strain.

  • Miguel Cabrera exits with apparent injury
    Miguel Cabrera exited Monday's game against the Royals after four innings with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Well, that's no good. The exact reason for his exit isn't yet clear, but Jarrod Saltalamacchia replaced Cabrera at first base to begin the fifth inning. The Tigers should pass along an update soon. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:25 pm

  • Rich Hill (hand) moving his rehab to Arizona
    Rich Hill (blister) will travel to the Dodgers' spring training complex in Arizona this week.

    Advice: He had been scheduled to make a rehab start with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, but that plan was scratched following a bullpen session Sunday at Dodger Stadium. Hill hasn't pitched in a game since July 17 -- when he was a member of the Athletics -- and is still experiencing problems with a severe blister on his left hand. The hope is that the dry air in Arizona will help the healing process. He is scheduled to face hitters in a simulated setting on Wednesday and Thursday, then the Dodgers will try to come up with a new timetable for his L.A. debut. Rotoworld.com Aug 15, 6:09 am
