  • Kole Calhoun hits 18th homer
    Kole Calhoun went 2-for-4 and hit his 18th homer Wednesday as the Angels beat the A's 8-6.

    Advice: Calhoun wasn't very good the first two months of the second half, but he's torn it up lately, going 11-for-18 with five doubles in his last five games. His .350 OBP is a nice surprise; he hit 26 homers last year, but he came in at just .308 in the OBP department then. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:34 pm
  • Alex Meyer strikes out five against A's
    Alex Meyer allowed two runs in four innings and struck out five Wednesday in his start against the A's.

    Advice: The Twins were going back and forth on Meyer as a starter or a reliever. The Angels tried him in the rotation this month after getting him in the Hector Santiago deal, and he had a 4.57 ERA and a 24/13 K/BB ratio in 21 2/3 innings over five starts. That should be good enough to keep him in the mix for a rotation spot next spring. The Angels aren't going to be able to be too picky. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:31 pm
  • Hunter Renfroe homers, knocks in four
    Hunter Renfroe went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and four RBI as the Padres edged the Dodgers 6-5 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Renfroe should have been up on July 21, not Sept. 21, but at least he's used his very limited major league time to make a huge first impression; he's homered four times in his first five starts. It bodes well for his chances of being penciled in as the Padres' right fielder next year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:22 pm
  • Luis Perdomo gives up five runs in win
    Luis Perdomo surrendered five runs in five innings Wednesday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Perdomo gave up three homers, two of them coming in the first. It brought his total to 23 homers allowed in 146 2/3 innings on the season. Still, he picked up a win, leaving him 9-10 with a 5.71 ERA. He was surprisingly competent, if not exactly effective, after moving into the Padres rotation in mid-June, which qualifies as a success considering that he was a Rule 5 pick who never pitched above A ball prior to this year. He'll open next season back in the minors, probably in Triple-A, but he should again be a factor in the Padres rotation. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:20 pm
  • Jose De Leon roughed up by Padres
    Jose De Leon was tagged for five runs -- three earned -- in 2 1/3 innings by the Padres on Wednesday.

    Advice: This probably eliminates De Leon for consideration from the postseason roster. He posted a 6.35 ERA in his four starts for the Dodgers. Still, his future is awfully promising. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:16 pm
  • Tyler Chatwood goes eight scoreless in win
    Tyler Chatwood allowed three hits over eight scoreless innings and struck out nine Wednesday in beating the Giants.

    Advice: Chatwood's season ends much like it started. The middle wasn't as pleasant, but he showed what he can do while healthy; he allowed one or no runs in 10 of his 27 starts. What he does need to demonstrate is that he can stay healthy; his 27 starts and 158 innings this season were new career highs. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:12 pm
  • Miguel Gonzalez goes 8 1/3 scoreless in win
    Miguel Gonzalez pitched 8 1/3 innings of three-hit ball in the White Sox's 1-0 win over the Rays on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Orioles chose to save $4 million by cutting Gonzalez this spring. It's a mistake that might cost them the wild card, as Gonzalez posted a 3.73 ERA in 23 starts (and one relief appearance) for the White Sox. Orioles starters have a 4.80 ERA at the moment. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:47 pm
  • Blake Snell has final start cut short
    Blake Snell pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings before a rain delay ended his start Wednesday against the White Sox.

    Advice: It was shaping up as a strong one for Snell; he had struck out four and allowed just one hit before play was halted. Barring an appearance on short rest this weekend, he'll conclude his rookie season 6-8 with a 3.54 ERA. He struck out 98 in 89 innings, but he also walked 51. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:45 pm
  • Teixeira launches walkoff grand slam vs. Sox
    Mark Teixeira hit a walkoff grand slam Wednesday off Joe Kelly as the Yankees beat the Red Sox 5-3.

    Advice: It didn't stop the Red Sox from clinching the AL East, but it surely felt good for Teixeira, who will wrap up his career in four days unless the Yankees pull off a miracle and advance. With homers in consecutive games, Teixeira has upped his OPS to .660, his highest mark since early May. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:37 pm
  • Bryan Mitchell blanks Red Sox
    Bryan Mitchell shut out the Red Sox for seven innings Wednesday, allowing just two hits.

    Advice: The Yankees have always been high on Mitchell, but he was essentially a non-factor this year after fracturing a toe in April. Having such a strong outing in his final regular-season start will help with the wishcasting for 2017, though we're still skeptical that he'll last as a starter. He'll likely compete for a rotation spot in spring training. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:35 pm
  • McAllister tosses two scoreless frames Wed
    Zach McAllister tossed two scoreless innings in a rainy start versus the Tigers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He gave up one hit, walked one and struck out one in the brief outing. The game was interrupted by rain multiple times and ended up being called after five frames. The Indians' starting rotation has been wracked by injuries of late, so McAllister was called upon to fill in a day after the Tribe clinched their division. He has been effective out of the bullpen this year. He has a 3.44 ERA with 54 strikeouts in 52 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:50 pm
  • Santana goes 2-for-2 with two RBI Wednesday
    Carlos Santana went 2-for-2 and drove in a pair of runs in a rain-shortened loss to the Tigers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He also drew a walk. He doubled home a run in the first inning, and followed that with an RBI-single in the fourth inning. He is batting .256/.362/.489 with 34 home runs and 85 RBI. He is a solid starter in standard leagues and an even better asset in on-base percentage leagues and points leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:41 pm
  • Carlos Gomez goes 3-for-4, hits three-run HR
    Carlos Gomez went 3-for-4 and delivered a clutch three-run home run to lead the Rangers over the Brewers 8-5 on Wednesday.

    Advice: His blast in the eighth inning broke open a tie game against his former team. Gomez has played much better since joining the Rangers a month ago. He's now up to eight home runs and 24 RBI in 31 games with Texas after managing just five homers and 29 RBI in 85 games with the Astros. Gomez also has 18 stolen bases overall. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:33 pm
  • Anderson yields four runs in five innings Wed
    Chase Anderson allowed four runs -- three earned -- in five innings but escaped with a no-decision although his team lost to the Rangers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He gave up eight hits and two walks while fanning only two batters on the evening. He got off to a rough start as he gave up three runs in the first inning before settling down to give up just one more run over the next four frames. Anderson finishes his season with a 9-11 record after 30 starts. He has a 4.39 ERA with 120 strikeouts in 151 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:17 pm
  • Villar hits lead-off home run on Wednesday
    Jonathan Villar went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: He led off the game with a solo shot to center field and drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in the second inning. His .285 batting average has cooled a bit as he was over .300 for a good chunk of the season. He has 19 home runs, 63 RBI and 91 runs scored. Villar leads the major leagues with 60 stolen bases. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Renfroe homers twice, drives in seven vs. LAD
    Hunter Renfroe went off in Tuesday's 7-1 win over the Dodgers, launching a three-run home run and a grand slam to finish with seven RBI.

    Advice: Renfroe spaced out his damage. He swatted a three-run home run off Kenta Maeda in the first inning, then went silent until the eighth. At which point, all the noise in the world. The 24-year-old outfielder connected to clear the bases for the grand slam against Louis Coleman, boosting the Padres to a 7-1 advantage in the process. For those disinclined to do the math, Renfroe accounted for all seven of the Padres' runs in the game with his pair of home runs. Those were his second and third career major league homers. All of this damage has come in Renfroe's first 17 big league at-bats. Not too shabby. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:02 pm
  • Gomez has three-run HR in win over Brewers
    Carlos Gomez hit a three-run home run and the Rangers topped the Brewers 6-4 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gomez jumped on a pitch by his former teammate Jimmy Nelson in the third inning, tying the game with his three-run shot. He's now got seven homers, 21 RBI and 18 runs scored since joining the Rangers in late August, a signal that perhaps a change of scenery was all the 30-year-old needed. Gomez will make for an interesting free agent case this offseason. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:06 pm
  • De Leon to start Wednesday vs. Padres
    Jose De Leon will start Wednesday against the Padres.

    Advice: De Leon was originally scheduled start on Tuesday, but Kenta Maeda will move up a day to start instead. The rookie right-hander has posted a 5.52 ERA through his first three starts in the majors. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:28 am
  • Jonathan Villar homers twice against Rangers
    Jonathan Villar homered twice, doubled and knocked in five runs to lead the Brewers past the Rangers 8-3 on Monday.

    Advice: That's not so good for the old stolen base numbers there, Jonathan. Still, he's up to 18 homers this year after hitting 10 over 589 at-bats in parts of three seasons with the Astros. There was no doubt he'd steal a whole bunch of bases if the playing time was to be had, but the power outburst didn't seem so likely. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:21 pm
  • Carlos Gomez goes 3-for-4 against Brewers
    Carlos Gomez went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a stolen base Monday against the Brewers.

    Advice: The Astros could have used this Gomez, but it just wasn't happening. He has more homers (six) in 102 at-bats for Texas than he did in 295 at-bats for Houston (five). He's also hitting .275 with 12 walks, giving him a .357 OBP. His OBP in Houston was .272. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:14 pm
  • Mark Teixeira rips game-tying homer
    Mark Teixeira smacked a game-tying solo home run in Monday's comeback win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: The Jays called upon Jason Grilli to close it out with Roberto Usuna unavailable, and Teixeira drilled one over the right-field wall with one out to knot things up. After a Didi Gregorius single, Aaron Hicks then delivered a go-ahead blast. Teixeira now has 14 homers over 378 at-bats in his farewell season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:38 pm
  • Renfroe swats first big league homer Saturday
    Hunter Renfroe went 2-for-4, scored twice and hit his first major league home run on Saturday versus the Giants.

    Advice: He launched a solo homer off Madison Bumgarner in the fourth inning. He doubled and scored in the sixth. Renfroe hit 30 home runs at Triple-A this season. The 24-year-old former first round draft pick is getting his first cup of coffee in the majors this month. He will likely work his way into the Padres' starting lineup early next season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:11 pm
  • Calhoun goes 3-for-5 with two RBI, two runs
    Kole Calhoun went 3-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Astros.

    Advice: He had an RBI single in the eighth inning and a ground rule double in the ninth to drive in another run. He has a .264 batting average with 17 home runs, 70 RBI and 88 runs scored after 150 games. He is a solid fourth fantasy outfielder. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:01 pm
  • Mark Teixeira not in Yankees lineup Saturday
    Mark Teixeira is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Saturday's showdown against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Yankees skipper Joe Girardi continues to mix and match as the Bombers fight for a wild card berth. Tyler Austin is making a rare start in his place and will bat eighth against Marcus Stroman and the Blue Jays. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:18 am
  • Meyer gives up four runs in no-decision
    Alex Meyer yielded four runs in 5 1/3 innings Friday in a no-decision against the Astros.

    Advice: Meyer gave up just one run over his first five innings of work, but things fell apart for him in the sixth inning. He gave up an infield single and a pair of walks to load the bases before being pulled. All three baserunners eventually came around to score. The tall right-hander has shown some flashes, but he can’t be trusted in mixed fantasy leagues right now. He’ll finish his season with a start against the Athletics next time out. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:07 pm
  • Miguel Gonzalez hit hard in loss to Indians
    Miguel Gonzalez was hit hard in Friday's loss to the Indians, allowing four runs on eight hits in 4 1/3 innings.

    Advice: The right-hander struck out two and didn't walk a batter in the contest. He kept the Tribe's offense at bay through the first three innings, but they broke through in the fourth with a two-run homer from Jose Ramirez and tacked on another pair in the fifth before chasing him. He'll carry a 3.98 ERA and 1.29 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Rays. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:39 pm
  • Mitchell goes six innings in loss to Jays
    Bryan Mitchell gave up three runs (one earned) over six innings Friday in a loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Mitchell ran into all sorts of trouble early on in this one, so it’s impressive that he managed to make it through six innings. All told, he gave up six hits and four walks while striking out two batters. Mitchell has posted a 4.50 ERA and 9/7 K/BB ratio in 18 innings through four starts since being recalled by the Yankees. He’s not a fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:39 pm
  • Kole Calhoun back in Angels' lineup Friday
    Kole Calhoun is back in the Angels' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Calhoun was away for a few days following the birth of his son. He's in right field and batting second against Doug Fister and the Astros. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:41 pm
  • Chatwood holds Dodgers to two runs in six IP
    Tyler Chatwood kept the Dodgers in check in Thursday's no-decision, allowing two runs on five hits over six innings.

    Advice: Chatwood had some issues with his control in this one, as he walked four and threw just 57 of his 102 pitches for strikes. He pitched well enough for the win and exited with a 4-2 lead, but the Rockies bullpen imploded like an imperfectly made submarine after he left the game, surrendering five runs in the seventh inning and ultimately falling by a final score of 7-4. The 26-year-old right-hander will bring a 4.08 ERA and 1.41 WHIP into a road showdown with the Giants in his final start of the season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:09 pm
  • Santana's homer, four RBI help down Royals
    Carlos Santana finished 2-for-3 with a home run and four RBI in the Indians' 5-2 win over the Royals on Thursday.

    Advice: Santana broke a 2-2 tie with a three-run bomb off Dillon Gee in the sixth inning. He'd knocked in a run with an RBI double earlier in the game. The 30-year-old has been on fire as of late, homering in three of his last four games and also collecting three doubles, seven RBI and five runs scored in that span. It will go down as a career year on a lot of fronts for Santana, who has 34 homers, 83 RBI and 83 runs scored with his .253/.361/.492 line. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:43 pm
  • Chase Anderson locks down Pirates into sixth
    Chase Anderson held the Pirates in check in Thursday's win, yielding one run on four hits over 5 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Anderson struck out six and walked one on the evening. He kept the scoreboard clean outside of a Francisco Cervelli solo home run in the fifth inning. For the season, the 28-year-old right-hander has pitched to a 4.36 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 113/51 K/BB ratio over 146 2/3 innings. His 2016 schedule will finish out with a road date with the Rangers next Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:05 pm
  • Snell tosses five scoreless in win over Yanks
    Blake Snell threw five shutout innings and the Rays blanked the Yankees 2-0 on Thursday.

    Advice: Snell scattered five hits and walked three, using six strikeouts to steer clear of any damage. The 23-year-old rookie has been the picture of inconsistency this year, but at the end of the day he's 6-8 with a 3.65 ERA through 18 starts. That's not too shabby in a tough AL East. Snell has at least one more start left in him before he calls it a year, and he'll take on the White Sox his next time out. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:31 pm
  • Calhoun to return to Angels lineup on Friday
    Kole Calhoun is expected to return to the Angels starting lineup on Friday.

    Advice: The right fielder missed the past three games to be with his wife for the birth of his son. The 28-year-old will return to a .263/.342/.418 slash line with 17 homers and 68 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:20 pm
  • Luis Perdomo allows three runs in loss
    Luis Perdomo yielded three runs in seven innings Wednesday in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Perdomo remains awfully raw, but it's impressive that he's managing to hold his own for the most part. Since mid-June, he has a 4.26 ERA and a 72/26 K/BB ratio over 105 2/3 innings in 17 starts. That's a massive improvement on the 9.50 ERA he had previously. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:47 pm
  • Santana goes 4-for-5 with a run and RBI Wed.
    Carlos Santana went 4-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI to help lead the Indians to victory over the Royals on Wednesday.

    Advice: His single in the eighth inning provided what turned out to be a critical insurance run. Santana is known more for his on-base percentage than his batting average. He boosted both tonight. He is batting .251/.358/.484 with a career high 33 home runs and 79 RBI in 148 games. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:14 pm
  • Padres promote Hunter Renfroe from El Paso
    Padres purchased the contract of OF Hunter Renfroe from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Renfroe was one of the top hitters in the Pacific Coast League this summer, slashing .306/.336/.557 with 30 homers and 105 RBI in 133 games for the El Paso Chihuahuas, whose season ended Tuesday in the Triple-A championship. The plan probably calls for him to make three or four starts over the Padres' final 11 games, which doesn't offer much fantasy appeal. Renfroe, the 13th overall pick in the 2013 MLB June Amateur Draft, will challenge for a starting job with San Diego leading into 2017. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:05 pm
  • Padres calling up Renfroe, Margot and others
    Padres manager Andy Green confirmed late Tuesday that the club is calling up prospects Hunter Renfroe, Manuel Margot, Austin Hedges, and Carlos Asuaje.

    Advice: We were hoping this might happen three weeks ago so that Renfroe and Margot -- both top-100 prospects -- might be of some fantasy use, but the El Paso Chihuahuas made a run all the way to the Triple-A championship before falling to the Yankees' Scranton/Wilkes-Barre affiliate on Tuesday night in Memphis. Renfroe, 24, batted .306/.336/.557 with 30 home runs and 105 RBI in 133 games this season at the Triple-A level. Margot, 21, hit .304/.351/.426 with six home runs and 30 stolen bases in 124 games. They'll both be appearing in the majors for the first time. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:06 am
  • Gomez' three hits, two runs spark Rangers
    Carlos Gomez went 3-for-5 with a double and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Angels.

    Advice: Gomez once again served as a sparkplug atop the Rangers' lineup, leading off the first and third innings with hits and scoring the team's first two runs of the game. He's now got multiple hits in four straight contests to bring his average up to .276 since joining the Rangers in late August. His revival in Arlington will make the 30-year-old one of the more fascinating players to watch come draft season next spring. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:21 pm
  • Carlos Santana belts solo homer Tuesday
    Carlos Santana clubbed his 33rd homer of the season in Tuesday's win over the Royals.

    Advice: Santana's blast in the third inning was all the Indians could muster through eight frames, but they won it on a walk-off double by Brandon Guyer in the ninth. The designated hitter keeps extending his new career high with each longball, as he's now bested his previous high-water mark by six. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:11 pm
  • Kole Calhoun not in Angels' lineup Monday
    Kole Calhoun is not in Monday's lineup against the Rangers.

    Advice: No word yet on the reason for his absence. Shane Robinson will make the start in right field and bat ninth against Texas left-hander Martin Perez. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:29 pm
