  • Yadier Molina to have thumb re-evaluated Mon.
    Yadier Molina will have his ailing left thumb re-evaluated on Monday.

    Advice: Molina was prescribed another week of rest when he visited the doctor last Monday. He said Sunday that the thumb is "getting stronger every day," but we won't know about his status for the NLDS until after Monday's exam. Tony Cruz has been handling the catching duties for St. Louis with Yadi sidelined. Today, 11:45 am
  • DJ LeMahieu not in Sunday's lineup
    DJ LeMahieu is not in the Rockies' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: LeMahieu is sporting a .301 average and the club wants to make sure it stays above the .300 mark. Daniel Descalso is covering second base. Today, 11:19 am
  • Uribe (chest) still can't do activities
    Juan Uribe (chest) remains unable to do physical activities.

    Advice: Uribe is still dealing with a deep chest bruise that he suffered while diving for a ball on September 20. He's a long shot for the NLDS roster and is a question mark for any subsequent series should the Mets advance. Today, 9:23 am

  • deGrom could go on short rest in Game 4
    Mets manager Terry Collins on Sunday said the club has discussed the possibility of bringing back Jacob deGrom on short rest to start Game 4 of the NLDS.

    Advice: They would consider it only if they're trailing in the series and likely only if Steven Matz (back) is unable to go. The other option for Game 4 if Matz isn't healthy is Bartolo Colon. If deGrom starts Game 4, Noah Syndergaard would get the ball in Game 5. Today, 9:22 am
  • Spencer Patton recalled from Triple-A
    Rangers recalled RHP Spencer Patton from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: The Rangers are desperate for some bullpen help as they try to wrap up the American League West. Patton holds a 9.00 ERA in 24 innings this season with the big club. Today, 9:14 am
  • Miguel Cabrera sitting out Sunday's finale
    Miguel Cabrera is absent from the Tigers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: As expected, Cabrera is getting some extra rest after wrapping up the American League batting title. Jefry Marte is manning first base in his place. Today, 9:13 am
  • Justin Turner sitting out on Sunday
    Justin Turner is not in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Turner has been banged up of late so the Dodgers will get him some rest in the regular season finale. Alex Guerrero is at third base. Today, 8:57 am

    Joe Mauer is not in the Twins' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's getting a day of rest. Kennys Vargas is covering first base. Today, 8:26 am
  • Eddie Rosario not in Sunday's lineup
    Eddie Rosario is absent from the Twins' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's simply receiving a day off. Shane Robinson is playing left field. Today, 8:24 am
  • Dexter Fowler not in Sunday's lineup
    Dexter Fowler is not in the Cubs' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a simple day off. Austin Jackson will cover center field in the regular season finale. Today, 8:14 am
  • Frank Garces to start on Sunday
    Frank Garces will start on Sunday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: It will be a "bullpen day" for San Diego, as Garces has essentially been a one-inning reliever. He owns a 5.00 ERA over 39 relief appearances this season and obviously should be avoided in fantasy leagues. Today, 8:01 am
  • Hector Olivera (elbow) out of lineup
    Hector Olivera (elbow) remained out of the Braves' lineup for the first game of Sunday's doubleheader versus the Cardinals.

    Advice: Olivera remains sore after being hit in the left elbow by a pitch last Tuesday. It's unclear whether he'll feel up to playing the second game. Adonis Garcia is handling third base in the first game of the doubleheader. Today, 7:27 am

  • Roenis Elias struggles against A's
    Roenis Elias lasted just two-plus innings and gave up four runs Saturday against the A's.

    Advice: He was lucky it wasn't worse, considering that he left the bases loaded with no outs in the third and just one runner came around to score. Elias ends the year with a 5-8 record and a 4.14 ERA in 20 starts and two relief appearances. He should be a perfectly acceptable fifth starter going forward, but the Mariners probably won't have him a job next spring. Yesterday, 11:11 pm
  • Carson Smith records 22nd hold
    Carson Smith got four outs for his 22nd hold before Tom Wilhelmsen blew a save Saturday against the A's.

    Advice: The main reason Smith hasn't spent the last month closing is because the Mariners don't want to have to pay him big bucks in arbitration a couple of years down the line. He's recovered from his midseason malaise by going the last 18 2/3 innings without allowing an earned run (and just one unearned). Yesterday, 11:09 pm
  • Greinke dominates over eight versus Padres
    Zack Greinke fired eight innings of one-run ball in the Dodgers' 2-1 defeat of the Padres on Saturday.

    Advice: It's a little odd that Dodgers manager Don Mattingly let his NLDS Game 2 starter go so deep in this one, but there weren't many high-stress pitches. The Cy Young Award candidate yielded just four hits and a walk while striking out eight. He'll finish the regular season with a 1.66 ERA. Yesterday, 9:10 pm
  • Jacob deGrom will get ball for Game 1 of NLDS
    Manager Terry Collins said Jacob deGrom will be the Mets' starter for Game 1 of the NLDS against the Dodgers.

    Advice: He was the obvious choice with Matt Harvey expected to be held back until Game 3. DeGrom owns the majors' fifth lowest WHIP (0.99) and the sixth lowest ERA (2.60). Last season's NL Rookie of the Year is 0-2 with a 3.66 ERA in three career starts against the Dodgers. Yesterday, 8:02 pm
  • Cabrera rockets two-run homer in loss
    Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Cabrera jumped on an Erik Johnson offering in the sixth inning, sending it deep into the Chicago night for a two-run homer. As manager Brad Ausmus has indicated that his veteran slugger would not play in Sunday's season finale, he finishes the 2015 season holding a .338/.440/.534 triple-slash with 18 homers and 76 RBI in 119 games. Saturday's home run was just the third Cabrera's logged in 42 post-All-Star Break contests. Yesterday, 7:44 pm
  • Ausmus: Miguel Cabrera likely to sit on Sunday
    Manager Brad Ausmus plans to sit Miguel Cabrera Sunday in the Tigers' season finale against the White Sox.

    Advice: Cabrera began Saturday with the American League's highest batting average at .334. He's on his way to winning his fourth batting title in the last five seasons. After a down year in 2014, at least by his standards, Cabrera has firmly re-established himself as an early first-round pick in all fantasy formats. Yesterday, 3:41 pm
  • Justin Turner knocks in two runs
    Justin Turner singled, drove in two runs and walked Friday against the Padres.

    Advice: Turner is working to ensure himself a starting spot in the postseason following his second-half injuries. He rebounded in September following a poor August, so he still seems like the Dodgers' best option at third base. Friday, 9:54 pm

  • Mauer singles twice in loss to Royals
    Joe Mauer went 2-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Mauer was the only Twin with more than one hit in the contest. Both of his knocks went for singles, as was the case with all six of the Twins' hits. The 32-year-old first baseman is slashing .267/.340/.383 with 10 homers and 66 RBI this season. The OBP mark is nice--Mauer's always going to have a patient eye--but he's no longer a premier average hitter and his power remains somewhat suspect. Friday, 8:32 pm
  • Hector Olivera (elbow) scratched from lineup
    Hector Olivera (elbow) was scratched from Thursday's lineup against the Nationals.

    Advice: Olivera was hit in the elbow by a pitch on Tuesday and still isn't 100 percent. Adonis Garcia will fill in at third base. Thursday, 1:27 pm

  • Justin Turner has some swelling in forearm
    Justin Turner has some forearm swelling.

    Advice: That's part of the reason he's absent from the Dodgers' starting lineup Thursday afternoon in San Francisco. Turner got struck on the arm by a pitch earlier this week. He should be completely fine for the final weekend of the regular season and the NLDS. Chase Utley is starting at third base against the Giants. Thursday, 10:36 am

    Justin Turner is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon.

  • Juan Uribe (chest) now doubtful for NLDS
    Juan Uribe (chest) has shown very little improvement and now looks doubtful for the NLDS.

    Advice: Uribe suffered a deep chest bruise while diving for a ball on September 20 and then aggravated the injury a few days later. He'll visit a specialist in New York on Thursday and hope to get some answers, but it sounds like an extended period of rest is the only cure here. Thursday, 7:12 am

  • Miguel Cabrera out of Tigers' lineup on Wed.
    Miguel Cabrera is out of the Tigers' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: He'll be day-to-day the rest of the way as the Tigers play out the string. It's just precautionary, and to protect Cabrera's standing in the AL batting title race. Wednesday, 1:36 pm
  • Hector Olivera (elbow) returns to lineup
    Hector Olivera (elbow) is back in the Braves' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Oliver exited Tuesday's game after being hit on the left elbow by a pitch, but he's fine. He's hitting .260/.321/.411 with two homers in 22 games so far with the big club. Wednesday, 11:48 am

  • Dexter Fowler sitting out on Wednesday
    Dexter Fowler is not in the Cubs' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: He's just getting a breather. Austin Jackson is in center field. Wednesday, 11:42 am
  • Fowler scores 100th run in win over Reds
    Dexter Fowler went 1-for-5 and scored a run in a win over the Reds on Tuesday.

    Advice: It was a fairly nondescript night for the leadoff hitter, but the run was his 100th of the season. That's good for third-most in the National League, and it's the first time in his career that Fowler has hit the century mark in runs scored. It's been a great year all around for the 29-year-old, who is batting .248/.343/.412 with 17 homers, 45 RBI and 20 steals atop the Cubs' order. Tuesday, 10:04 pm
  • Hector Olivera leaves after HBP on elbow
    Hector Olivera departed Tuesday's game against the Nationals after being hit on the left elbow by a pitch.

    Advice: Olivera sports an elbow pad on his left arm, but Tanner Roark's offering still smarted. The Braves should have an update on status later Tuesday. Tuesday, 5:41 pm
    W, 6-0 vs x StL; 1:30 pm vs StL
  • Miguel Cabrera in Tigers' lineup on Tuesday
    Miguel Cabrera is in the Tigers' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Rangers.

    Advice: But the veteran slugger is expected to get regular days off over the final week of the 2015 regular season. His status will warrant monitoring on a game-to-game basis. Tuesday, 1:22 pm
  • Greinke tosses seven solid innings in return
    Zack Greinke got a no-decision, allowing two runs in seven innings as the Dodgers lost in 12 innings to the Giants on Monday.

    Advice: Greinke allowed a two-run double to Trevor Brown in the second inning, accounting for all of the damage. It was one of four hits he allowed along with three walks and seven strikeouts. He hadn't pitched since September 18 due to a sore calf. Greinke now has a terrific 1.68 ERA with a 0.85 WHIP and a 192/39 K/BB ratio over 214 2/3 innings. He'll wrap up his regular season with a home start against the Padres. Monday, 11:22 pm
  • Elias solid over six in no-decision vs. HOU
    Roenis Elias got a no-decision, giving up two runs in six innings as the Mariners fell to the Astros on Monday.

    Advice: Both runs came in the first inning on solo home runs by George Springer and Evan Gattis. They were two of only three hits Elias allowed along with two walks and five strikeouts. The lefty now has a 3.89 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP and a 97/41 K/BB ratio over 113 1/3 innings. He'll make his final start of the year at home versus the Athletics. Monday, 10:13 pm
  • Cabrera's time to be limited in final week
    The Tigers plan to limit Miguel Cabrera's playing time for the rest of the week.

    Advice: He's now qualified for the American League batting title and holds a big edge with his .336 mark, so the Tigers will get him some much-needed rest. Manager Brad Ausmus indicated that Cabrera will likely see just two more starts this week. Monday, 9:33 pm
  • Molina (thumb) ruled out for regular season
    Yadier Molina (thumb) has been ruled out for the remainer of the regular season after a doctor on Monday prescribed him another week of rest.

    Advice: He'll be re-evaluated on Sunday or Monday and still has a chance to be ready for the start of the postseason, but obviously this news isn't ideal. Molina is dealing with a slight ligament tear in his left thumb that doesn't really affect him catching but could be a hindrance at the plate. Tony Cruz will continue to handle the catching duties for the Cardinals. Monday, 2:06 pm
  • deGrom tosses six strong innings, knocks in 2
    Jacob deGrom tossed six innings of one-run ball and also knocked in two runs with the bat as the Mets beat the Reds on Sunday.

    Advice: deGrom scattered five hits, walking none and striking out nine in the effort. The Reds' lone run came in his final inning, when Joey Votto hit an RBI single. deGrom contributed on offense, knocking in two runs with a single in the third innings. The right-hander will head into his final start at home against the Nationals with a 2.60 ERA, a 0.99 WHIP, and a 198/36 K/BB ratio over 187 innings. Sep 27, 1:09 pm
  • Eddie Rosario sitting out on Sunday
    Eddie Rosario is absent from the Twins' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It appears to be a simple day off. The Twins have shifted Aaron Hicks over to left field and are starting Byron Buxton in center. Sep 27, 7:47 am
  • Justin Turner gets the nod Saturday
    Justin Turner returned to the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Rockies.

    Advice: Turner left Thursday's game early and only appeared as a pinch-hitter on Friday. Manager Don Mattingly has been mixing and matching with Turner, Jimmy Rollins and Corey Seager alternating starts on the left side of the infield. Saturday was Rollins' turn to sit out. Sep 26, 2:17 pm

  • Uribe (chest) may not be ready for NLDS
    There is concern within the Mets organization that Juan Uribe (chest) may not be ready in time for the National League Division Series.

    Advice: Uribe is listed as day-to-day with his chest injury. While X-rays revealed no structural damage on Friday, he's still in a good deal of pain and it's going to be awhile before he's ready to return to the lineup. Sep 26, 10:34 am

  • Cabrera (back) goes hitless in return Friday
    Miguel Cabrera went 0-for-3 with a walk in his return to the Tigers starting lineup on Friday.

    Advice: The 32-year-old slugger has been in a slump at the plate recently, and the back issue may be partially to blame. Still, he leads the American League with his .334 batting average and looks primed to win his fourth batting title in the past five seasons. Sep 26, 5:45 am
  • Uribe day-to-day after X-rays are negative
    Juan Uribe is considered day-to-day with a chest contusion after X-rays came back negative on Friday.

    Advice: The veteran infielder was lifted from Friday's game against the Reds after aggravating an existing chest injury. It sounds as though he was able to avoid any significant injury though and should be ready to return to action in a couple of days. Sep 25, 8:27 pm

  • Rosario drives in three runs in Friday's loss
    Eddie Rosario went 1-for-4 with a triple and three RBI as the Twins dropped a heartbreaking decision to the Tigers on Friday in Detroit.

    Advice: Rosario got the game's scoring started with a three-run triple in the fifth inning and came around to score on a sacrifice fly. Unfortunately, that would wind up being the extent of the Twins offense in the ballgame. The 23-year-old has done a nice job in his rookie season, slashing .268/.289/.462 with 12 homers, 49 RBI and 11 stolen bases. Sep 25, 7:51 pm
  • Juan Uribe leaves Friday with chest injury
    Juan Uribe was removed from Friday's game against the Reds after re-aggravating his chest injury.

    Advice: Uribe initially sustained a deep chest bruise while diving for a ball during Sunday's game. The injury isn't expected to sideline him for long, so expect him to return to the lineup before the end of the weekend. Sep 25, 7:20 pm

    DJ LeMahieu is not in the Rockies' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He's just getting some rest. Rafael Ynoa is at second base. Sep 25, 2:56 pm
  • Zack Greinke (calf) to throw bullpen session
    Zack Greinke (calf) will throw a bullpen session on Friday.

    Advice: That would put him on track to start on Monday in San Francisco. Greinke was scratched from a scheduled outing on Wednesday due to a sore calf, but it appears he'll be in line to make two starts next week. Sep 25, 2:42 pm
  • Turner leaves game after five innings
    Justin Turner left Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks after five innings.

    Advice: He went 0-for-2 with a walk and a run scored before exiting. Recently sidelined with left knee soreness, Turner was back in the lineup for the first time since Saturday. His early removal was part of the plan all along. Sep 24, 2:16 pm

    Advice: Turner missed four games with left knee soreness. He is slashing .290/.366/.488 with 15 home runs, 55 RBI, and 49 runs scored in 118 games this season for Los Angeles. Sep 24, 9:59 am

  • Juan Uribe (chest) singles as pinch-hitter
    Juan Uribe (chest) singled as a pinch-hitter in the Mets' loss to the Braves on Wednesday.

    Advice: Uribe hadn't appeared in a game since Sunday due to a deep chest bruise. It's clearly nothing too serious. The veteran infielder is batting .220/.303/.433 in 142 plate appearances since joining the NL East-leading Mets. Sep 24, 5:48 am
