  • Neil Walker sitting out Friday's game
    Neil Walker is not in the Pirates' lineup Friday.

    Advice: The Pirates have had to do a lot of mixing and matching since Josh Harrison and Jordy Mercer returned from the disabled list. It's Harrison at second base Friday with Walker sitting. Rotoworld.com 47 minutes ago
  • Daniel Murphy (quad) out of Mets' lineup
    Daniel Murphy (quad) is not in the Mets' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Murphy left Wednesday's game with a strained left quad. The Mets are saying it's a minor ailment and are considering him day-to-day. Murphy was given a cortisone injection and will be unavailable off the bench Friday. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:58 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. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:30 pm

  • Donovan Solano recalled from Triple-A
    Marlins recalled INF Donovan Solano from Triple-A New Orleans.

    Advice: Solano has hit just a .156/.194/.219 over 46 games this season with the big club this season. He'll offer depth in the infield. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:20 am
  • Solarte goes supernova on Dodgers
    Yangervis Solarte finished with a huge game in Thursday's 10-7 win over the Dodgers, going 4-for-5 with a solo home run, two doubles and three runs scored.

    Advice: Tight effort by Solarte, who played a key role in the Padres' come-from-behind win. He cracked a solo homer in the seventh to draw his team to within 7-6, then finished off the night's scoring with an RBI double in a four-run eighth. The strong performance boosted the 28-year-old infielder's season triple-slash to .267/.321/.428. He's also hit 12 homers and driven in 55. This is the first season in which Solarte's seen more than 252 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:52 pm
  • Ben Zobrist goes 4-for-5 in win
    Ben Zobrist went 4-for-5 with three runs scored from the leadoff spot for the Royals on Thursday.

    Advice: It's almost like Zobrist might be a better leadoff option than Alcides Escobar, who had a rare day off in this one. He's hitting .339 with five homers and a 14/19 K/BB ratio in 121 at-bats since joining the Royals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:17 pm

  • Matt Duffy goes 0-for-4 in loss
    Matt Duffy went 0-for-4 on Thursday, dropping his average under .300 for the first time since July 25.

    Advice: With the Giants struggling to score runs and Duffy offering little power, it might be time for his mixed-league owners to try someone else (or at least once the Giants finish up their series in Coors Field this weekend). He's still a decent bet to hit for average, but he has just two homers since the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:55 pm

  • Hernan Perez goes 3-for-3
    Hernan Perez went 3-for-3 with a triple and two RBI as the Brewers topped the Pirates 5-3 on Thursday.

    Advice: Perez is hitting .281 in 160 at-bats for the Brewers, though that comes with just three walks (three!) and one homer. Of course, this is a guy who would have spent all year in Triple-A with the Tigers had he not run out of options as a 24-year-old. The Brewers had room to give him a shot, and while he shouldn't be the future at third base for the club, he will give them an alternative at the middle-infield spots next year.

  • Daniel Murphy has mild strain of left quad
    Daniel Murphy is dealing with a mild strain of his left quad.

    Advice: Murphy left Wednesday's game with what was described as "mild discomfort" in his quad. He missed some time earlier this year with the same injury and has apparently been playing through it again in recent days. The Mets are calling him day-to-day for now.

  • Rosario launches grand slam off Samardzija
    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 Samardzija 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. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:42 pm
  • 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 Yesterday, 11:39 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. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:19 am

  • Forsythe (groin) goes 3-for-3 in return Wed.
    Logan Forsythe (groin) finished 3-for-3 with two doubles and two walks Wednesday versus the Orioles.

    Advice: Forsythe was pulled early on Tuesday with discomfort in his left groin, but it was clearly nothing major. The versatile 28-year-old continues to enjoy a breakout season with Tampa Bay, now boasting a .291/.367/.456 slash line with 15 home runs, 27 doubles, and 53 RBI in 130 games.

  • Utley pokes a homer in 2-1 win over Giants
    Chase Utley hit a solo homer off Mike Leake on Tuesday in a 2-1 triumph against the Giants.

    Advice: Utley finished 1-for-4, with his sixth inning shot the most meaningful offensive moment of the evening. It's just like old times for the 36-year-old, batting atop the lineup with old pal Jimmy Rollins. Unfortunately, we're in 2015 and opposing managers encourage Don Mattingly to stack his geriatric sub .300-OBPers atop the lineup. Since coming over on August 20, Utley has had two hits in a game once. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:54 pm
  • Zobrist homers as Royals rout the Tigers
    Ben Zobrist went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run as the Royals routed the Tigers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Zobrist knocked in the first of the Royals' 12 runs, clubbing a solo home run to left field off of Randy Wolf in the first inning. It's his 11th of the season and fifth since joining the Royals in late July. On the season, Zobrist is hitting a solid .285/.373/.470. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:12 pm

  • Murphy (quad) to be re-examined Thursday
    Daniel Murphy (quad) will be re-examined on Thursday.

    Advice: Murphy left Wednesday's game with mild discomfort in his left quad, and after the game he said it's something he's been playing through. With a day off Thursday, Murphy has a good shot of being back in the lineup Friday if the injury is as negligible as manager Terry Collins suggested it is. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:20 pm

  • Murphy leaves game with mild quad discomfort
    Daniel Murphy left Wednesday's game with mild left quad discomfort.

    Advice: The Mets called the move "precautionary," but Murphy has missed time with an injury to the same quad already this season. More should be known Thursday, but it sounds as though he's day to day for now. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:30 pm

  • Wilmer Flores excused for family emergency
    Wilmer Flores has been excused from the Mets until Friday due to a family emergency.

    Advice: Flores' grandfather had a heart attack so he's rushing home to Venezuela. New York won't put him on the family medical emergency list because major league rosters have already expanded. He should be in Miami on Friday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:29 pm

    Advice: It's Utley's first absence since joining the Dodgers last week. Before the game. Utley was seen taking grounders at third base, a position he's never played in the major leagues. Rookie Jose Peraza will start at second base and bat eighth. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:21 pm

    Advice: A cracked fingernail has kept him out since Tuesday. Hansen Alberto will grab another start at second base.

Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:48 pm
  • Zobrist doubles, singles in win over Rays
    Ben Zobrist went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Friday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Zobrist has been a monster since joining the Royals at the trade deadline, racking up 35 hits (including eight doubles and four home runs) over 102 at-bats. During his current little five-game hitting streak, he's 8-for-18. Simply marvelous. For the season, he maintains a .291/.377/.475 triple-slash to pair with 10 homers, 46 RBI and 59 runs scored.
