  • Morrison knocks out 3-run HR to beat Angels

    Advice: He finished 2-for-4 with two runs scored. Morrison has now homered in three of his last eight games, a stretch in which he also has a trio of doubles. It's certainly debatable whether Morrison is Seattle's best option at first base versus righties, but he's rewarded the club's patience with a strong September. Rotoworld.com

Tony Cruz then singled, sending Adams motoring around the third base bag to score the winning run. Adams has been bothered lately by an oblique injury.

Cruz scored Matt Adams from second base on a single to center field off of Jimmy Nelson. Cruz had entered the game in the top of the 10th after Yadier Molina had been replaced with a pinch-runner in the previous inning. Cruz has mustered a .205/.273/.244 slash line and 14 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com

    Alexi Amarista continued to torment the Phillies on Thursday, going 2-for-3 with a homer, two RBI and two runs scored.

    Advice: He finished a triple short of the cycle on Tuesday, and went 6-for-11 (.545) with a double, two homers, three runs scored and five RBI over the last three games. Where did this come from? Your guess is as good as ours. Amarista entered those games batting .237 with three homers total. He's got the slash line up to .245 /.294/.323. Rotoworld.com

  • Medica has a hit + steal as he breaks slump
    Tommy Medica went 1-for-3 with a steal in Thursday's win against the Phillies.

    Advice: It was his fifth steal of the season. The first baseman went 4-for-8 in this series with a pair of steals after entering it mired in a brutal 3-for-53 (.057) slump over his previous 28 contests. Medica's struggles down the stretch have rendered his odds of making next season's Opening Day roster not a sure thing. He's slashing .233/.286/.401 through 97 games. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:45 pm
  • Ramirez scores both runs, Tribe wins it in 13

    Advice: Puig has had a good road trip out West, batting .400 (12-for-30) over seven games thus far. He may have broken out of his slump just in time for the Dodgers, who are defending a narrow lead in the NL West. Puig currently rests on a .297/.383/.477 slash line with 14 home runs and 63 RBI.

  • Jose Ramirez goes hitless again
    Jose Ramirez went 0-for-4 on Wednesday and is hitless in 10 at-bats in the series against the Astros.

    Advice: The Indians were too cheap to promote Francisco Lindor, so Ramirez will finish out the season at shortstop, even though he hasn't proven to be any kind of threat at the plate. He's currently hitting .246/.293/.318 in 195 at-bats. Rotoworld.com

    Alexi Amarista finished 3-for-4 with a double, homer, two RBI and one run scored on Tuesday against the Phillies.

    Advice: He came into this game batting .204 with no extra-base hits in September. So naturally Amarista finishes a triple short of the cycle in Petco, doing most of his damage against Phillies' starter A.J. Burnett. It'll be awhile before you see another performance like this out of Amarista. Even after the monster game, he's batting .242/.292/.313 on the season. Rotoworld.com

    Yasiel Puig went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in a loss to the Rockies on Tuesday.

    Advice: Adams has been dealing with a left oblique injury for much of this month and his offensive numbers have cratered. The Cardinals -- lacking a serviceable backup option at first base -- need to get him right down the stretch. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Adams nursing oblique issue again
    Matt Adams is not in Sunday's lineup after aggravating his left oblique issue Saturday.

    Advice: We figured something was up when he wasn't in Sunday's lineup against a right-hander. Adams first tweaked the oblique a week and a half ago but returned after missing just two games. It's not clear at this point how long he might be sidelined this time. Daniel Descalso is at first base Sunday, and he could share time there with Xavier Scruggs while Adams is out. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 10:06 am
  • Matt Adams not in Sunday's lineup
    Matt Adams is not in the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He also sat out Friday's game, but that was against a lefty. With the Cards facing a righty Sunday, you have to wonder if Adams' oblique might be an issue again. Daniel Descalso is getting the nod at first base Sunday. Rotoworld.com

    Dioner Navarro is not in the Blue Jays starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Rays.

    Saturday, 7:10 am
  • Logan Morrison homers, doubles in win
    Logan Morrison homered and doubled before being removed for a pinch-running Friday against the A's.

    Advice: Corey Hart is playing better and Justin Smoak is back in the majors, but Morrison is still getting steady starts against right-handers, for better or worse. The homer tonight was his second in three games. Even so, he's hitting just .217 in 217 at-bats against righties this year, compared to .319 in 69 at-bats versus lefties. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:13 pm
  • Lucroy has two hits, knocks in a run vs. Reds

The 28-year-old has hit safely in 14 out of his last 15 games and owns a .302/.370/.478 batting line to go along with 13 home runs and 65 RBI. He's deserving of being in the National League MVP conversation. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:32 pm
  • Alcantara hits solo homer vs. Pirates
    Arismendy Alcantara went 2-for-4 with a solo home run against the Pirates on Friday.

    Advice: It was his first multi-hit game since August 24. With nine homers and seven stolen bases, Alcantara has some enticing skills, but he's batting just .210/.262/.369 through his first 58 games in the majors. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:03 pm
  • Matt Adams getting a day off Friday
    Matt Adams is not in the Cardinals' lineup Friday.

    Advice: The Cards are stacking righties versus southpaw Jorge De La Rosa, as Kolten Wong and Oscar Taveras are also sitting out. Xavier Scruggs is at first base, Mark Ellis is at second and Randal Grichuk is in right field. Rotoworld.com

    David Peralta (back) is now aiming to return to the Diamondbacks' starting lineup on Monday.

    Advice: Peralta had been hoping to get in there Friday, but his back is still giving him trouble. He'll undergo a precautionary MRI to make sure there's nothing seriously wrong. If that turns up negative, the 27-year-old outfielder should be cleared to return after the weekend. Peralta has faded in the second half but still owns a decent .293/.326/.461 overall batting line on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 12:16 pm
  • Navarro stays hot, knocks in a pair of runs

    Advice: Navarro has hit .404 (21-for-52) with 15 RBI since August 23. His two-run single in the seventh was piling on at that point, as it pushed the Jays' lead to 8-1 in what turned out to be a five-run inning. Navarro owns a .287/.328/.415 slash line along with 12 home runs and 68 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:55 pm
  • Soler provides Cubs' only run with HR in loss
    Jorge Soler gave the Cubs their only run with a solo home run as they were trampled again by the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

  • Christian Colon to test out finger Thursday
    Christian Colon will test out his broken right middle finger with some throwing drills on Thursday.

    Advice: Colon suffered the injury just a week ago, but the swelling has gone down and he's hoping to play through it. He doesn't expected hitting to be an issue, but throwing could. Even if he's cleared to play, don't expect Colon to have much of a role down the stretch. Rotoworld.com

    Alexi Amarista snapped an 0-for-17 stretch of futility by going 1-for-4 with a run scored Tuesday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Amarista's calling card is his defense, but even the leather wouldn't keep him in the lineup for most teams. The Padres have always viewed offense as optional, so he makes for a nice fit. Amarista is slashing .234/.285/.298 with three homers over 359 at-bats. Rotoworld.com
