  • Dodgers designate Andy Wilkins for assignment
    Dodgers designated 1B Andy Wilkins for assignment.

    Advice: He was the roster casualty required to create a spot on the 40-man roster for Corey Seager. If he isn't claimed on waivers, he should continue to provide organizational depth at Triple-A. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:54 pm

  • Shuck legs out go-ahead RBI triple
    J.B. Shuck went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit, two-run triple in Thursday afternoon's win over the Twins.

    Advice: Shuck's big two-run three-bagger came with the White Sox trailing 4-3 in the seventh inning. They wouldn't look back from their new-found lead. Nice hit off the bench for the backup outfielder, particularly given the fact that he's only seen 110 at-bats this season. In his limited role, he's hitting .282/.352/.373 with no home runs and 11 RBI. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:47 pm
  • Plouffe strikes out thrice in loss to CWS
    Trevor Plouffe went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts and a walk in Thursday afternoon's loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Plouffe fanned in some big spots, notably with two runners on and one out in the seventh inning, as the Twins tried to claw their way back from a 6-4 deficit. They wouldn't score in that frame, ultimately losing by that score. The 29-year-old third baseman is slashing .242/.300/.434 with 18 homers and 73 RBI, though he entered the game hitting just .212/.258/.411 in 29 games since the All-Star Break.

  • Rosario launches grand slam off Samardizja
    Eddie Rosario connected for a grand slam in the third inning of Thursday afternoon's 6-4 loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: An Eduardo Escobar infield single and a pair of walks issued by White Sox starter Jeff Samardizja set the stage for Rosario to work his grand salami magic with two outs in the third inning. The 23-year-old outfielder is posting one of the sneakier productive seasons in the bigs in 2015, as he maintains a .271/.291/.446 triple-slash with nine homers, 10 triples, 37 RBI and 10 steals.

  • 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. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:24 pm
  • Gomes batting fifth Thursday
    Jonny Gomes will bat fifth Thursday against the Tigers.

    Advice: Gomes, who was acquired from the Braves earlier this week, will start in left field against southpaw Matt Boyd. The 34-year-old owns an .890 OPS against left-handed pitching this season and makes for an appealing play in daily formats. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:21 pm
  • Nationals' Taylor (knee) out again Thursday
    Michael Taylor (knee) is out again Thursday.

    Advice: Taylor was a late scratch from Wednesday's series finale against the Cardinals with ongoing discomfort in his right knee. It's not believed to be a serious injury -- the Nationals were calling it a bruise last week -- but Taylor clearly needs at least one more day of rest. Bryce Harper is in center field and Clint Robinson is in left field on Thursday night against the Braves. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:02 pm
  • Nationals activate Tyler Moore from the DL
    Nationals activated 1B/OF Tyler Moore from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Moore missed a little over two weeks with a left ankle sprain. The 28-year-old has batted just .200/.253/.347 in 162 plate appearances this season, but he'll provide some much-needed outfield depth for the Nationals in his return to the active roster on Thursday.

  • Odor still feeling discomfort in right hand
    Rougned Odor acknowledged Wednesday that he's still experiencing discomfort in his right hand.

    Advice: Odor cracked the fingernail on his right middle finger last Tuesday and is having trouble on some throws, but he expects to play through the injury. "I feel good at the plate," Odor said. "Sometimes I feel it but not all the time. Sometimes I hit my finger on the other hand and I feel it. But not when I hit the ball." Rotoworld.com Today, 11:39 am
  • Yankees outright Cole Figueroa to Triple-A
    Yankees sent INF Cole Figueroa outright to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: Figueroa was designated for assignment by the Yanks on September 1 and passed through waivers unclaimed. The 28-year-old has hit .299/.361/.368 this year in Triple-A. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:01 am

  • 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. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:21 am
  • Kiermaier (ankle) returns to Rays' lineup
    Kevin Kiermaier (ankle) went 1-for-5 in his return to the Rays' starting lineup on Wednesday.

    Advice: Kiermaier sat out Tuesday after spraining his right ankle in Monday night's series opener against the Orioles. The 25-year-old is batting just .260/.293/.416 in 127 games this season, but he has played game-changing defense in center field. And the metrics back that up. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:07 am
  • Gregor Blanco (neck) goes 0-for-4 in return
    Gregor Blanco (neck) went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in the Giants' loss to the Dodgers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Blanco was held out of the Giants' starting lineup on Tuesday with some mild discomfort in his neck. The 31-year-old outfielder owns a relatively impressive .292/.372/.403 batting line in 109 games this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:55 am
  • Logan Morrison hits 15th homer in win
    Logan Morrison came off the bench to walk and then hit a three-run homer Wednesday in the Mariners' 8-3 win over the Astros.

    Advice: Morrison also homered in his lone at-bat Tuesday. He has 15 homers this season, six of which have come against the Astros. He's likely going to resume playing against most righties with Jesus Montero down (and nearly out). Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:31 pm
  • Shawn O'Malley reaches four times
    Shawn O'Malley went 3-for-4 with a walk, a steal and two runs scored in his first big-league start Wednesday against the Astros.

    Advice: O'Malley was called up Tuesday after hitting .297/.345/.413 as a 27-year-old in the PCL. He's a future 25th man at best, but with Austin Jackson gone, he could have some AL-only value the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:25 pm
  • Taylor (knee) a late scratch Wednesday
    Michael Taylor (knee) was a late scratch from the Nationals' lineup on Wednesday.

    Advice: Taylor was originally in the lineup for the series finale against the Cardinals, but he was replaced by Bryce Harper in center field shortly before the start of the game. Harper slid over from right field, Jayson Werth moved from left to right and Danny Espinosa, who wasn't previously in the lineup, got the start in left. The Nationals should provide an update on Taylor's status after the game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:27 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. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:31 pm
  • Gregor Blanco nursing neck injury
    Gregor Blanco is dealing with some neck discomfort.

    Advice: It's not clear whether he's available off the bench Tuesday. Consider Blanco day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:25 pm
  • Mariners call up Shawn O'Malley from Triple-A
    Mariners purchased the contract of INF/OF Shawn O'Malley from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: O'Malley is being rewarded after a nice season in Triple-A where he batted .297/.345/.413 with five home runs, 39 RBI, and 20 steals over 89 games. The 27-year-old previously appeared in 14 games with the Angels last season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:16 pm
  • Kiermaier (ankle) not in Rays' lineup Tuesday
    Kevin Kiermaier (ankle) won't play Tuesday night.

    Advice: Kiermaier sprained his right ankle on Monday night against the Orioles. He also made a fantastic catch to rob Manny Machado of a home run in that same game. The rangy center fielder should be fine in a few days. Brandon Guyer is in center Tuesday versus Baltimore. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:02 pm
  • Yanks designate INF Figueroa for assignment
    Yankees designated INF Cole Figueroa for assignment.

    Advice: The move opens up a spot on the Yankees' 40-man roster. Figueroa, 28, has appeared in two games with the Yankees this season and was batting .299/.361/.368 over 118 games in Triple-A. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:07 am

  • Royals announce trade for Jonny Gomes
    Royals acquired OF Jonny Gomes and cash considerations from the Braves in exchange for SS Luis Valenzuela.

    Advice: Gomes has batted just .221/.325/.364 on the season but entered play Monday with a .271/.375/.458 batting line in the second half. He should serve mainly as a pinch-hitting option versus left-handers down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:44 pm
  • Kevin Kiermaier exits with mild ankle sprain
    Kevin Kiermaier left Monday's game against the Orioles with a mild right ankle sprain.

    Advice: No word on whether it happened when he made a ridiculous catch in the first inning to rob Manny Machado of a home run. Consider Kiermaier day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:50 pm
  • Royals to acquire outfielder Jonny Gomes
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Royals have acquired Jonny Gomes from the Braves.

    Advice: CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says the Braves will receive infield prospect Luis Valenzuela in return, with the Braves also sending the Royals some cash. Gomes was in the Braves' lineup Monday but was pulled following the fifth inning after the trade was apparently agreed upon. He's hitting only .221/.325/.364 on the season but entered play Monday with a .271/.375/.458 batting line in the second half. He'll offer the Royals a nice pinch-hitting option versus lefties. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:44 pm
  • Teams showing interest in Jonny Gomes
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that "a few teams" are showing interest in Jonny Gomes.

    Advice: Gomes could be a solid pinch-hitting option against lefties for a contending team down the stretch. He's hitting just .223/.327/.368 overall this season but has a .271/.375/.458 batting line since the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:51 pm

    Michael Taylor (knee) went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in his return to the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Taylor was held out for a couple games after bruising his right knee. The young outfielder is going to be an important player for the second-place Nationals down the stretch with Denard Span (hip) now ruled out for the remainder of the 2015 season. Taylor, 24, is batting .243/.292/.391 with 13 home runs and 15 stolen bases in 111 games this year at the major league level. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:15 am
  • Kiermaier's homer the deciding factor vs. KC
    Kevin Kiermaier's solo home run was the deciding factor on Sunday as the Rays beat the Royals.

    Advice: Kiermaier broke a 2-2 tie in the sixth inning, slugging a solo home run to right field off of Luke Hochevar.

    Michael Taylor (knee) grounded out as a pinch-hitter in Saturday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Taylor hasn't started the last two games due to a bruised right knee, but that he was able to pinch-hit is a good sign that he's close. He could be back in the lineup Sunday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:24 am
  • 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. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:48 pm
  • Kiermaier cranks two-run homer
    Kevin Kiermaier went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a steal in Saturday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Kiermaier smacked a two-run homer off of Royals starter Kris Medlen in the fourth inning, his sixth homer of the season. He also recorded steal No. 16 in the contest.

  • Michael Taylor (knee) remains sidelined
    Michael Taylor (knee) is not in the Nationals' starting lineup Saturday against the Marlins.

  • Rougned Odor absent from Saturday's lineup
    Rougned Odor (finger) remained out of the Rangers' lineup Saturday against the Orioles.

    Advice: A cracked fingernail has kept him out since Tuesday. Hansen Alberto will grab another start at second base. With the rosters expanding in a few days, there's no need for Texas to place Odor on the disabled list. The 21-year-old has had a productive year, hitting .280 with a solid .479 slugging percentage. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:48 pm
  • Blanco reaches three times in win on Friday
    Gregor Blanco (hip) showed no signs of rust in his return to the Giants starting lineup on Friday, going 2-for-4 plus a walk in a victory over the Cardinals.

Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:39 pm
  • Dodgers recall Jose Peraza from Triple-A

    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. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:21 pm
  • Odor (finger) out of Rangers' lineup again
    Rougned Odor (finger) remained out of the Rangers' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Odor hasn't played since cracking his right middle fingernail when he was hit by a grounder Tuesday. He did work out again prior to the game and should be back in there soon. Hanser Alberto is holding down second base again in Odor's place. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:23 pm
  • Michael Taylor (knee) to miss a few games
    Michael Taylor (knee) is expected to be sidelined for a few days.

    Advice: The feeling is that Taylor didn't cause any major damage when he collided with the outfield wall Thursday, but he has a bad bruise on his right knee.

Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:07 pm
  • Jung Ho Kang out of Pirates' lineup Thursday

    Jung Ho Kang is out of the Pirates' lineup Tuesday against the Marlins.

    Jonny Gomes went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a two-run home run to help the Braves beat the Rockies on Monday.

    Advice: Gomes gave the Braves a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the first inning with a two-run blast off of Jorge De La Rosa. He'd add an RBI single in the fifth to extend the Braves' lead to 4-2.
