  • Jose Iglesias (finger) to undergo more tests
    Jose Iglesias will undergo more tests after his ailing right middle finger swelled up on him overnight.

    Advice: Iglesias was diagnosed with just a bruise on Thursday, but his finger feels worse a day later and that's obviously not a good sign. The Tigers should have more on the shortstop's status at some point over the weekend. Yesterday, 1:19 pm
  • Dixon Machado recalled from Triple-A
    Tigers recalled INF Dixon Machado from Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: Machado has just one hit in eight plate appearances this season with the big club. He'll provide some depth with Jose Iglesias (finger) banged up. Yesterday, 12:30 pm
  • Adeiny Hechavarria (hamstring) not in lineup
    Adeiny Hechavarria (hamstring) is not in the Marlins' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Hechavarria departed Wednesday's game with a left hamstring strain and Thursday's off day apparently wasn't enough to heal up. He's day-to-day. Miguel Rojas is at shortstop in his place. Yesterday, 12:25 pm
  • Jordy Mercer reaches four times
    Jordy Mercer went 2-for-2 with two walks and two runs scored Thursday against the Brewers.

    Advice: Mercer was making his sixth start since coming off the DL on June 23. If he hits, it'll give the Pirates more reason to play Jung-Ho Kang at third. He is the superior defense shortstop, after all. Thursday, 8:09 pm
  • Iglesias is day-to-day with finger contusion
    Jose Iglesias is considered day-to-day after leaving Thursday's game with a right middle finger contusion.

    Advice: Considering how much pain Iglesias appeared to be in after getting drilled with a pitch while trying to bunt, he's lucky to have avoided a fracture. He should rejoin the Tigers lineup in a day or two. Thursday, 7:31 pm
  • Jose Iglesias leaves game with hand injury
    Jose Iglesias was forced to leave Thursday's contest against the Royals after he was hit by a pitch on his right hand while attempting to bunt.

    Advice: The severity of the injury remains unclear, but it appeared as though Iglesias was in quite a bit of pain. He'll presumably head for X-rays and the Tigers should have an update on his status shortly. If he's forced to miss any time, Andrew Romine would be the biggest beneficiary. Thursday, 6:48 pm
  • Kang not in Thursday's lineup
    Jung Ho Kang is not in Thursday's lineup against the Brewers.

    Advice: He'll take a seat against right-hander Taylor Jungmann. Jordy Mercer will start at shortstop and bat eighth. Thursday, 1:24 pm

  • Jose Peraza out 3-5 days with sore hamstring
    Jose Peraza will be out for at least the next 3-5 games due to a sore hamstring.

    Advice: It's part of the reason the Dodgers are calling up top infield prospect Corey Seager on Thursday. Pereza has impressed so far with Los Angeles, slashing .267/.353/.467 in 17 plate appearances. He was acquired from the Braves in July as part of the Hector Olivera trade. Thursday, 8:21 am
  • X-rays negative on Justin Turner's pinkie
    X-rays taken late Wednesday on Justin Turner's left pinkie showed up negative.

    Advice: Turner was struck on his left hand by a Mike Leake pitch on Wednesday night, but it sounds like he avoided a major injury. "It got the tip of my pinkie and didn't have feeling in it for a couple of innings," the third baseman told reporters, "but I took some X-rays right away and everything’s good." Los Angeles will call up top infield prospect Corey Seager to provide some depth in case Turner needs a bit of rest. Thursday, 7:19 am

  • Tejada plates four as the Mets top the Phils
    Ruben Tejada enjoyed a four-RBI night as the Mets topped the Phillies on Wednesday.

    Advice: Tejada hit what turned out to be an inside-the-park home run when Domonic Brown misplayed a fly ball down the right field line and injured himself in the second inning. Tejada added an RBI ground out in the fifth and an RBI single in the seventh. The shortstop is hitting .257/.336/.350 with three home runs, 24 RBI, and 31 runs scored. Wednesday, 7:12 pm

  • Drew homers, has three RBI in three-hit game
    Stephen Drew had a big game Wednesday, going 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: Drew hit a three-run homer in the third inning, one of five home runs in the game. It was the latest in a stretch of good games for Drew, who is 9-for-12 with two doubles, two homers, nine RBI and six runs scored in his last four games. On the year, Drew is hitting just .211/.281/.404. Wednesday, 4:51 pm

  • Hechavarria (hamstring) called day-to-day
    Adeiny Hechavarria (hamstring) is considered day-to-day.

    Advice: Hechavarria made an early departure from the Marlins' matinee game against the Braves on Wednesday after tweaking his left hamstring while legging out a bunt single. He could be out for a couple of games. Wednesday, 2:49 pm
  • Crawford will compete in Arizona Fall League
    Phillies SS prospect J.P. Crawford will play for Glendale in the Arizona Fall League.

    Advice: The 20-year-old will head to the desert for some extra seasoning. Crawford's third year in the Phillies organization has been a success. In 102 games, he's posted a solid .295 average with 12 steals and 67 runs scored. In Glendale, he'll be teammates with top prospects Austin Meadows and A.J. Reed. Wednesday, 1:18 pm

  • Pedro Florimon called up by Pirates
    Pirates purchased the contract of INF Pedro Florimon from Rookie-level Bristol.

    Advice: Florimon was removed from the 40-man roster just last week, but he's back on it now and will give the Pirates infield depth during the final month. He won't see significant action. Wednesday, 12:57 pm
  • Story lights it up with four hits Tuesday
    Rockies SS prospect Trevor Story went 4-for-4 with a triple and two RBI in Tuesday's win for Triple-A Albuquerque

    Advice: The 22-year-old has shown some nice pop this year, contributing 18 homers and 77 RBI across two minor league levels. A recent 13-for-28 stretch has propelled his average from .261 to where it stands now at .281. Story's path to the big leagues is clearer now that Troy Tulowitzki has moved on to the Blue Jays. Wednesday, 12:23 pm

  • Adeiny Hechavarria suffers hamstring injury
    Adeiny Hechavarria exited Wednesday's game versus the Braves with a left hamstring injury.

    Advice: Hechavarria tweaked the hammy as he beat out a bunt single. The Marlins could have more on his status after the game. Wednesday, 9:39 am
  • Andrelton Simmons (ankle) returns to lineup
    Andrelton Simmons (ankle) is back in the Braves' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Simmons missed the last two contests with inflammation in his right ankle. The slick-fielding shortstop is hitting a disappointing .265/.331/.342 with three homers this season. Wednesday, 7:36 am
  • J.J. Hardy (groin) takes BP, fields grounders
    J.J. Hardy (groin) took batting practice and fielded grounders on Tuesday.

    Advice: Hardy remains on schedule to be activated from the disabled list when first eligible on September 8. The shortstop has had a disappointing season for the Orioles, batting just .222/.253/.315 with seven homers. Wednesday, 5:22 am
    15-Day DL
  • Owings steals 15th bag of the season vs. Rox
    Chris Owings stole his 15th base of the season in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader the Rockies.

    Advice: Owings went 1-for-3 and scored a run to go along with the theft. The 15 steals are easily a career high for the 24-year-old, who is hitting just .239/.269/.340 overall. Tuesday, 10:40 pm
  • Kang doubles, homers in loss against Brewers
    Jung Ho Kang finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: Kang hit his 13th home run in the top of the ninth inning, but the Pirates couldn't complete the comeback. The shortstop also doubled and scored in the fifth inning. It has been a solid debut for the 28-year-old South Korean, as he's now batting .290/.363/.466 with 49 RBI, 52 runs scored and five stolen bases in 111 games. Tuesday, 8:31 pm

  • Andrelton Simmons (ankle) out again Tuesday
    Andrelton Simmons (ankle) is considered day-to-day.

    Advice: Simmons was a late scratch Monday and is out of the Braves' lineup again on Tuesday due to inflammation in his right ankle. It sounds like he'll be ready later this week. Daniel Castro is starting at shortstop Tuesday. Tuesday, 2:19 pm
  • Andrelton Simmons dealing with ankle injury
    Andrelton Simmons was a late scratch from Monday's lineup due to right ankle inflammation.

    Advice: There's no word yet on if it might be more than a day-to-day ailment. Pedro Ciriaco took Simmons' spot at shortstop. Monday, 4:45 pm
  • Drew goes 4-for-4 in Yankees' rout of Braves
    Stephen Drew went 4-for-4 with a homer and four RBI in the Yankees' 20-6 rout of the Braves on Sunday.

    Advice: Drew singled and scored in the Yankees' three-run second inning, hit a two-run shot in the Yankees' four-run third inning, drew a bases-loaded walk in the fifth inning, and then singled twice and scored another run in the Yankees' nine-run seventh. Drew bumped his batting average from .192 to .201 and his OPS from .632 to .659 in the big afternoon victory for the current American League Wild Card leaders. Sunday, 2:36 pm

  • Justin Turner not in Dodgers lineup on Sunday
    Justin Turner is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Sunday.

    Advice: It's nothing more than a regular day of rest for Turner. Kike Hernandez is getting the start in his place at the hot corner with Joc Pederson starting in center field. Sunday, 1:35 pm

  • Peraza swipes two bases, Dodgers top Cubs
    Jose Peraza went 2-for-4 with two stolen bases Saturday in the Dodgers' 5-2 defeat of the Cubs.

    Advice: Peraza singled, stole third base, and scored a run in the bottom of the third inning. In the bottom of the seventh inning, he smacked an RBI double and scored his second run of the game. In the eighth inning he reached on a fielder's choice and stole second. The young infield prospect can be a weapon as a pinch-runner down the stretch for Los Angeles and he'll be an intriguing daily fantasy play on days he starts. Saturday, 9:48 pm
  • Kang drives in two as Pirates beat Rockies
    Jung Ho Kang went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI as the Pirates topped the Rockies 5-3 on Friday.

    Advice: Kang got the Bucs on the board with an RBI single in the first inning then extended their advantage with an RBI double in the third. What is turning out to be one of the best free agent acquisitions of the winter, Kang is hitting .294/.368/.463 with 12 homers and 48 RBI in what has been a fantastic rookie season. Friday, 7:39 pm
    1:05 pm @StL
  • Dodgers recall Jose Peraza from Triple-A
    Dodgers recalled INF Jose Peraza from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: He would've been back with the club once rosters expand in September, but with the injury to Yasiel Puig he gets to return a couple of days early. He will provide infield depth down the stretch for the Dodgers. Friday, 4:21 pm
  • Jung Ho Kang out of Pirates' lineup Thursday
    Jung Ho Kang is out of the Pirates' lineup Thursday.

    Advice: Kang was also given a day off Tuesday. He's been worked hard in his first major league season and Jordy Mercer is back from his knee injury to take some of the reps at shortstop. Mercer will start there and bat eighth versus Miami on Thursday evening. Thursday, 12:26 pm
