  • Roberto Osuna records save No. 25
    Roberto Osuna retired the only two batters he faced to nail down his 21st save of the season in Monday's win over the Padres.

    Advice: The Blue Jays entered the bottom of the ninth with a four-run lead, but Osuna had to come on after Bo Schultz served up a two-run dinger. The closer got a foulout and a fly out to finish off the victory. Osuna is 21-for-23 in save chances and boasts a 2.03 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 51/9 K/BB ratio over 44 1/3 innings.

  • Cardinals/Mets rained out, doubleheader Tue.
    Monday's game between the Cardinals and Mets was postponed due to rain.

    Advice: The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Tuesday, beginning at 4:10 p.m. ET. Monday's starters, Noah Syndergaard and Carlos Martinez are expected to be pushed back to Game 1 on Tuesday. Jaime Garcia and Bartolo Colon will pitch the nightcap. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:12 pm
  • Marlins have inquired about Angels' Santiago
    Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Marlins have inquired on Angels' starters, including left-hander Hector Santiago.

    Advice: The Marlins have also presumably asked about Matt Shoemaker, who has been on a heck of a roll over the past two months. ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reported earlier Monday that the Angels are listening to offers on Santiago, who is under team control for one more season. The southpaw has a 4.32 ERA and 96/47 K/BB ratio over 110 1/3 innings this season. The Marlins are known to be in the market for starting pitching, especially with Wei-Yin Chen (elbow) going down.

  • Greinke (oblique) to throw bullpen Tuesday
    Zack Greinke (oblique) is scheduled to throw another bullpen session on Tuesday.

    Advice: If all goes well, Greinke will throw either a simulated game or a minor league rehab start on Friday. He appears on track for a return in early August. Greinke has been out all month with a left oblique strain. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:38 pm

  • Ranaudo to start vs. Cubs on Wednesday
    Anthony Ranaudo will start against the Cubs on Wednesday.

    Advice: Ranaudo will start in place of Jacob Turner, who allowed 12 runs in 7 1/3 innings over two starts. Ranaudo posted a 3.03 ERA and 71/12 K/BB ratio over 92 innings in Triple-A this season, but obviously this is a matchup to avoid in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:34 pm
  • Chris Sale to start vs. Cubs on Thursday
    Chris Sale will make his return Thursday against the Cubs.

    Advice: The White Sox suspended Sale for five games after he cut up some throwback uniforms with a knife as a bizarre form of protest. There's a chance that Thursday could be a final start with the White Sox, as the trade deadline is approaching and there has been quite a bit of a chatter about a possible deal. Of course, it would require a monster haul for Chicago to part with him and they might not see the sort of offers they want. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:32 pm

  • Hill describes blister as 'hot spot'
    Rich Hill described the blister on his left middle finger as "a little hot spot," but said that it's healing.

    Advice: Hill, who left a start on July 17 after just five pitches, threw a bullpen session Sunday while wearing a protective cover on his finger. It's unclear when he'll be ready to return to action, but some clarity would be nice as August 1 approaches. The southpaw is one of the top starting pitchers on the trade market.

  • D-Backs call up prospect Braden Shipley
    Diamondbacks purchased the contract of RHP Braden Shipley from Triple-A Reno.

    Advice: Shipley will make his major league debut Monday against the Brewers. The 25-year-old posted a 3.70 ERA and 77/22 K/BB ratio in 119 1/3 innings over 19 starts this season in Triple-A. It's unclear if he'll keep a rotation spot once Zack Greinke (oblique) is ready to return.Daily Slant: Shipley was the 15th overall pick back in the 2013 draft, but hasn't been great at the AAA level with just a 15.5 K% in 119.1 IP on the season. While the Brewers do strike out a ton against RHP (26.3 K%), they are in a nice spot tonight with one of the highest team totals on the slate. All of the bats in the top six of the order are squarely in play, and stacking up any combination of them is a fine GPP move. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:14 pm
  • D-Backs option Silvino Bracho to Triple-A
    Diamondbacks optioned RHP Silvino Bracho to Triple-A Reno.

    Advice: The move clears the way for Braden Shipley on the active roster. Bracho has a 6.75 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 14 2/3 innings in the majors this season. He should be back up again later this summer. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:11 pm

  • Padres recall Keith Hessler from El Paso
    Padres recalled LHP Keith Hessler from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Hessler will be available out of the Padres' bullpen on Monday night in Toronto. The left-hander has allowed 10 runs in six innings this year in the major leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:01 pm
  • Halos reportedly listening on Hector Santiago
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports the Angels are listening on starting pitcher Hector Santiago.

    Advice: And several clubs have already inquired, per Crasnick's sources. Santiago is sporting a career-worst 4.32 ERA in 110 1/3 innings this season, but the 28-year-old left-hander managed a sharp 3.55 ERA in 532 2/3 innings between 2011 and 2015. He is eligible for arbitration for the third and final time in 2017. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:05 am
  • Marlins interested in Seattle's Wade Miley
    Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports the Marlins have interest in Seattle starter Wade Miley.

    Advice: Miley struggled in 2014 with the Red Sox and has been even worse since the offseason trade that sent him to the Mariners. Miami, a half-game up on the second Wild Card, should probably shoot a little higher. The 29-year-old left-hander is sitting on a 5.23 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, and 73/33 K/BB ratio through 105 innings this season, and he's owed $8.97 million in 2017. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:51 am
  • Whitley (elbow) goes two scoreless in rehab
    Chase Whitley (elbow) threw two scoreless innings Sunday with High-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Whitley worked around a hit and a walk for another sharp rehab appearance. He struck out three batters in a scoreless frame last week in his rehab debut. The right-hander should become an option for the Rays' bullpen (or perhaps starting rotation) by the middle of August. He underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last May.

  • Huston Street among Giants' trade targets
    According to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, Angels closer Huston Street is among the Giants' trade targets leading up to the August 1 deadline.

    Advice: He's probably more of a backup plan, as the Giants have been linked to a number of other relievers having far better seasons. Street, 32, owns a rough 5.03 ERA and 1.93 WHIP in 19 2/3 innings this year out of the Anaheim bullpen. He has missed time with oblique and hamstring injuries. The right-hander is under contract for $9 million in 2017 and carries a $10 million club option for 2018. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:00 am
  • Kenley Jansen slasms the door on Cardinals
    Kenley Jansen slammed the door on the Cardinals in the ninth inning on Sunday, working a scoreless frame to protect a three-run advantage.

    Advice: Jansen induced a ground ball from Kolten Wong, then fanned Alberto Rosario and Randal Grichuk to retire the Cardinals without issue. He has once against been one of the most dominant closers in baseball this season, compiling a 1.45 ERA and 0.69 WHIP while converting 29 saves in 34 chances. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Miley limits Blue Jays to two runs in defeat
    Wade Miley pitched well in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays, yielding two runs on four hits over six innings.

    Advice: Fine effort from Miley, who struck out four and walked two on the afternoon. Edwin Encarnacion burned him for a solo home run in the fourth inning and Josh Donaldson drove in the second run on his line via an RBI double play in the sixth inning. Even with this respectable performance under his belt, Miley still holds a tough 5.23 ERA and 1.42 WHIP. He will try to build on Sunday's outing when he hits the road for an outwardly dreadful match-up with the Cubs next time out. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:31 pm
  • Anthony Ranaudo recalled from Triple-A
    White Sox recalled RHP Anthony Ranaudo from Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Ranaudo holds a 3.03 ERA and 71/12 K/BB ratio over 92 Triple-A innings this season. He'll be utilized in a relief role for now. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:59 am
  • White Sox suspend Chris Sale for five games
    The White Sox have suspended Chris Sale five games for his conduct in a clubhouse incident prior to Saturday's game.

    Advice: Sale cut up some throwback uniforms with a knife after getting into a heated argument with the front office about not wanting to wear the uniforms Saturday. The left-hander is tentatively slated to rejoin the White Sox' rotation on Thursday against the Cubs. General manager Rick Hahn said that the incident won't affect the club's decision on whether to trade the lefty or not, although that could just be GM speak. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:57 am

    Advice: Sale was scratched from Saturday's start and sent home after a run-in with the front office regarding throwback uniforms that he didn't want to wear. The White Sox have listed him as the scheduled starter on Thursday against the Cubs, although that could be tentative. Sale has also been mentioned as a trade candidate.

  • Ventura won't say when Sale will start again
    White Sox manager Robin Ventura on Saturday wouldn't say when Chris Sale would make his next start.

    Advice: Sale was scratched from Saturday's start and sent home after a dust-up with the front office regarding throwback uniforms that he didn't want to wear. "I'll talk about the game, but any of that stuff, we'll wait on that," Ventura said. "I'm not going to discuss what went on in there. But (it's) unfortunate he didn't start tonight. Proud of the guys who filled in." Jose Quintana will start as scheduled on Sunday. Miguel Gonzalez is currently slated to take the ball Monday, although that seems like a spot Sale could easily slide into, assuming he and the front office work out their issues. The left-hander might be traded prior to the deadline. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:33 am

    Zack Greinke (oblique) threw a 45-pitch bullpen session Saturday.

    Advice: Greinke came out of the session with no issues. Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said that the club is still determining what the next step will be for Greinke, although it's possible he's ready to make a rehab start. A return in early August is looking likely if he can avoid a setback. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:14 am

  • Sale sent home for cutting up throwback uni
    Tommy Stokke of FanRag Sports reports Chris Sale was sent home from U.S. Cellular Field on Saturday after cutting up throwback jerseys that he did not want to wear.

    Advice: This story takes another fascinating turn. Via FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal: "Sale asked that they not wear (throwbacks) on his day because they are uncomfortable. Things escalated when they wouldn't relent." Sale went after the jerseys with a knife during pregame batting practice, and then apparently exchanged some words with members of the White Sox front office for putting merchandise sales ahead of winning. He could be traded before the August 1 deadline, though that wouldn't really have anything to do with this odd incident. Matt Albers is starting in Sale's place on Saturday night against the Tigers.

  • Sale altercation was with front office staff
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick hears the Chris Sale clubhouse incident was with front office staff.

    Advice: Crasnick says the incident began with something "silly" and blew up into a bigger argument. It did not get physical, per a press release from the club, but the words exchanged were serious enough to cause the White Sox to scratch their ace from his scheduled start Saturday night against the Tigers. Matt Albers is going to take the mound instead versus Detroit. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:24 pm

  • Braden Shipley to make MLB debut Monday
    Diamondbacks pitching prospect Braden Shipley will be called up to make his major league debut Monday in Milwaukee.

    Advice: Shipley will be filling in for Zack Greinke, who remains sidelined with an oblique injury. The former first-round draft pick (15th overall in 2013) has registered a 3.70 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and 77/22 K/BB ratio in 119 1/3 innings this season at Triple-A Reno. It's not clear whether he'll get another turn after Monday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:15 pm
  • Report: Sox still talking to teams about Sale
    According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, the White Sox are talking to teams about Chris Sale.

    Advice: That's not exactly breaking news -- trade rumors have swirled around Sale for weeks -- but Passan's report is relevant because those discussions are ongoing even after the ace left-hander was scratched from his scheduled start Saturday against the Tigers because of a pregame clubhouse incident. We don't have any details about that incident, only that it was non-physical and did not cause an injury. This could be a very busy night for Sale's Rotoworld profile. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:59 pm

  • Rich Hill (blister) to throw pen session Sun.
    Rich Hill (blister) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Sunday.

    Advice: He'll wear a cover on his finger where a blister has developed and is refusing to go away -- that cover, by the way, can't be worn in a live game. The veteran left-hander lasted just five pitches in his first start out of the All-Star break, back on July 17. Hill is one of Oakland's better trade chips leading up to the August 1 deadline, but he obviously needs to get past this. There is no timetable for his return to the Athletics' rotation.

  • Jansen blows fifth save of season
    Kenley Jansen blew his fifth save of the season Friday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: The Dodgers pulled in front in the top of the ninth inning thanks to a solo homer off the bat of the red-hot Justin Turner, but the Cardinals answered right back in the bottom of the frame with a game-tying blast from the equally-hot Jedd Gyorko. Jansen came into Friday’s action having allowed just one home run over his first 41 2/3 innings of work this season. Hey, he was probably due for an off-night. He remains one of the game’s best.

  • Orioles could send Jimenez in trade for Upton
    Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union Tribune reports that the Orioles have discussed a potential trade that would send Ubaldo Jimenez and a prospect to the Padres for Melvin Upton.

    Advice: Jimenez would only be included in any deal to help offset the money remaining on Upton's contract, as his actual value is very limited.

Heyman says that the White Sox "are contemplating a serious sale," but it's unclear at this point whether they'll move Sale or Jose Quintana.

    Kenley Jansen allowed a hit but tossed a scoreless frame to pick up his 28th save of the season in Thursday's win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Daniel Murphy flew out after a 10-pitch battle and Bryce Harper then singled, but Jansen set the Nats down easily after that. He's blown four saves this season but remains one of the best closers in the game with a 1.30 ERA and 0.70 WHIP. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:12 pm

  • Santiago lasts five innings, beats Rangers
    Hector Santiago lasted just five innings against the Rangers on Wednesday, but still ended up with a victory after allowing three runs on five hits.

    Advice: Santiago walked three and struck out three on the evening, laboring through 100 pitches in his five frames. The Rangers scratched out a pair of runs against him in the third inning, then added in the fourth on a solo homer by Mitch Moreland. Now 8-4 on the season, Santiago will carry a 4.32 ERA and 1.29 WHIP into Tuesday's start against the Royals in Kansas City. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:04 pm
  • Hessler joins Padres for doubleheader
    Padres recalled LHP Keith Hessler from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Greinke felt strong after a flat-ground throwing session Tuesday and is ready to take the next step in his rehabilitation from a left oblique strain.

  • Miley surrenders three runs against CWS
    Wade Miley turned in a quality start in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox, allowing three runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Brett Lawrie and Melky Cabrera touched up Miley for solo home runs in the first and seventh innings, respectively, to account for the loudest damage on the southpaw's line. He now holds a dreadful 5.36 ERA and 1.44 WHIP over 99 innings. A road date with the Pirates shows next on his schedule. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:39 pm
  • Syndergaard allows unearned run over 5 2/3
    Noah Syndergaard allowed only an unearned run, striking out eight, over 5 2/3 innings Tuesday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Despite the strong turn, Syndergaard didn't factor in the decision. Still, it was a promising first for the right-hander after he dealt with arm fatigue before the All-Star break. Seemingly past those issues, Syndergaard will carry a 2.43 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 136/20 K/BB ratio into Monday's start against the Cardinals. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:47 pm
  • Rich Hill (hand) questionable for next start
    A's manager Bob Melvin said Tuesday that it's too early to tell whether Rich Hill (blister) is going to be able to take his next turn in the rotation.

    Advice: Hill left his last start Sunday versus the Blue Jays after aggravating a blister on his throwing hand. It's something that has been bothering him since before the All-Star break.

  • Report: Tigers could be in on Rich Hill
    Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports said the Tigers have been "calling around on starting pitching."

    Advice: Passan considers them a dark horse to land Rich Hill, who has also drawn interest from the Blue Jays, Dodgers, Marlins, Orioles, Rangers and Red Sox. Hill's trade market should expand once teams feel confident about his health. He had his last start moved back because of a blister and then lasted just five pitches Sunday against Toronto. Aside from his blister issues and a groin injury that sidelined him for all of June, Hill has had a renaissance year for the A's, contributing a stellar 2.25 ERA over 14 appearances.

    Advice: Hill was originally scheduled to start the opener of the second half on Friday, but he came down with a blister and the A's didn't want to take any chances. The southpaw was able to make it through a bullpen session Friday without incident, so he should be good to go moving forward. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 3:10 pm

  • Syndergaard (arm) will throw off mound Sat.
    Noah Syndergaard (arm) played catch Friday and will throw off a mound Saturday.

    Advice: He felt fine after Friday's workout and could be cleared to take his next turn in the Mets' rotation if Saturday's bullpen session goes well. Syndergaard made an early exit from his final start before the All-Star break due to arm fatigue and did not pitch in Tuesday night's Midsummer Classic, but this is believed to be a minor matter.

  • Zack Greinke (oblique) played catch Thursday
    Zack Greinke (oblique) played catch from a distance of 60 feet on Thursday.

    Advice: Greinke felt strong during and after the short workout -- his first time throwing a baseball since he landed on the disabled list June 29 with a left oblique strain. Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic says the Diamondbacks are hoping their ace will return to the starting rotation July 25-26 against Milwaukee. That would probably rule out a minor league rehab start. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 9:22 am
