  • AJ Schugel recalled from Triple-A
    Diamondbacks recalled RHP AJ Schugel from Triple-A Reno.

    Advice: He'll give the D'Backs a much-needed fresh relief arm. Schugel has put up a 4.84 ERA over 21 starts between Double- and Triple-A this season. Rotoworld.com 33 minutes ago

  • Andrew Chafin optioned to Triple-A
    Diamondbacks optioned LHP Andrew Chafin to Triple-A Reno.

    Advice: The D'Backs need a fresh relief arm, but it's puzzling to see Chafin get the boot given his 2.41 ERA for the season and 1.32 mark in August. He'll be back up when rosters expand. Rotoworld.com 38 minutes ago
  • Phil Hughes (back) nearing mound work
    Phil Hughes (back) is tentatively scheduled to resume throwing off a mound mid- to late-week.

    Advice: Hughes was originally expected to return from the disabled list when first eligible, but his back injury has lingered. The right-hander is looking at a mid-September return in a best-case scenario. Rotoworld.com 46 minutes ago

  • Burnett (elbow) targeting mid-Sept. return
    A.J. Burnett (elbow) is hoping to rejoin the Pirates' rotation during the September 15-17 series against the Cubs.

    Advice: Burnett was thrilled with how a 70-pitch simulated game went on Sunday, saying there's "no comparison" to how he feels now and how he did when he injured his elbow in July. He will not go out on a rehab assignment before returning. J.A. Happ has pitched well in Burnett's place, posting a 1.98 ERA over five starts. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:40 am

  • Matt Moore to rejoin Rays' rotation in Sept.
    Matt Moore will rejoin the Rays' rotation when rosters expand in September.

    Advice: Moore was awful in six starts with the big club but has rebounded at Triple-A Durham, posting a 3.30 ERA and 43/8 K/BB ratio over 30 innings. That includes a 16-strikeout game two starts ago. It's unclear who Moore will replace in the rotation, although he's on the same schedule as Erasmo Ramirez. "It seems Matt is in a really good place, and to his credit, he went down there and worked on some things we thought he needed to work on, and he also agreed,'' manager Kevin Cash said.

  • Felix Hernandez to have next turn skipped
    Felix Hernandez will have his next turn in the rotation skipped.

    Advice: Vidal Nuno will start on Monday in Houston instead. King Felix pitched well his last time out but overall has struggled for the last month, so getting him some extra rest probably isn't a bad idea. "I did the same thing last year," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said. "I freshened my pitchers up, and Felix had the best September of his career. Everybody thought I was nuts when I did it. I’ll do it again because it’s the right thing to do." Rotoworld.com Today, 8:48 am
  • Machi supplants Tazawa as Red Sox closer
    Red Sox interim manager Torey Lovullo said Sunday that Jean Machi has overtaken Junichi Tazawa as the club's closer.

    Advice: It comes as no surprise, as Tazawa was pulled from a save opportunity on Friday and then Machi nailed down a save on Saturday. Machi is certainly no cinch in the role given his 5.21 ERA on the season, but obviously he needs to be owned in fantasy leagues while he's being used in the ninth inning. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:32 am
  • Bobby Parnell (shoulder) throws live BP
    Bobby Parnell (shoulder) threw live batting practice Sunday.

    Advice: Parnell is technically on the disabled list with shoulder tendinitis, but he's really on there due to poor performance. He hasn't looked healthy since returning in early-June, with his velocity middling in the 93 MPH range. Parnell will be activated when rosters expand Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:22 am
    15-Day DL

  • Mayckol Guaipe recalled from Triple-A
    Mariners recalled RHP Mayckol Guaipe from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Guaipe has allowed 10 earned runs over 12 relief innings with the big club this season. He'll be used in middle relief. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:20 am
  • Mike Montgomery optioned to Triple-A
    Mariners optioned LHP Mike Montgomery to Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Montgomery has faded after a nice start, posting a 13.17 ERA over his last four starts. He'll be back when rosters expand, but it might not be as a starter. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:18 am

  • CC Sabathia (knee) plays catch
    CC Sabathia (knee) played catch on Saturday.

    Advice: It's the second time he's done so since landing on the disabled list. Sabathia was sporting a large brace on his arthritic right knee when he threw and will have to wear it if he returns this season. There's no room for him in the Yankees' rotation at the moment, although the club talked about using a six-man rotation before Sabathia was injured. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:56 am
    15-Day DL
     
  • Carlos Rodon could be skipped next month
    White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Saturday that the club could skip one of Carlos Rodon's starts next month.

    Advice: Rodon has thrown 122 2/3 innings between the majors and minors in his first full pro season, which is 9 1/3 frames shy of his high innings total from college. "There might be a spot where you can skip him and get him into that better line of where you would like to see him end up," Ventura said. "I also like to see him getting the repetition of being out there every five days." Rodon hasn't shown signs of wearing down, as he's pitched his best ball of the season of late with a 1.61 ERA and 29/11 K/BB ratio over his last 28 innings. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:08 am
  • Hellickson won't return when eligible
    Jeremy Hellickson (hamstring) will need more than a minimum stay on the disabled list.

    Advice: Hellickson is eligible to return from his hamstring injury on Wednesday, but he's yet to resume throwing. It's sounding like he might be a couple weeks away from rejoining the D'Backs rotation. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:46 am
    15-Day DL

  • Mat Latos pitches well in return to rotation
    Mat Latos held the Cubs to two runs over 4 2/3 innings Saturday in a no-decision.

    Advice: Latos was skipped on his last turn through the Dodgers' rotation and pitched pretty well in his return to action Saturday all things considered. The right-hander walked three but struck out five and yielded only four hits. He'll face the Padres on the road next. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:44 pm
  • Lester allows five earned in loss to Dodgers
    Jon Lester gave up five earned runs over six innings Saturday in a loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Lester didn't issue a walk and struck out seven, but the Dodgers tagged him for eight hits and took advantage of his inability to control the running game with three stolen bases. Lester should be able to bounce back in his next start at home against the Diamondbacks. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:42 pm
  • Machi earns the save as Red Sox top Mets
    Jean Machi earned his third save of the season as the Red Sox bested the Mets on Saturday.

    Advice: Machi retired all three batters he faced in the bottom of the ninth inning at Citi Field. This comes after a brutal outing from Junichi Tazawa on Friday. Machi appears to be the guy to own right now in the Boston 'pen. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:09 pm
  • Carlos Rodon earns win over Mariners
    Carlos Rodon pitched six innings of two-run ball Thursday in the White Sox's 4-2 win over the Mariners.

    Advice: Rodon overcame his embarrassment at wearing maybe the silliest uniform in baseball history and turned in his fourth straight quality start. Those who dropped him last month have to be disappointed by the turnaround, but it's still quite possible that he'll succumb to fatigue down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:30 pm
  • Felix goes eight innings to earn 15th win
    Felix Hernandez allowed two runs over eight innings in a win over the Athletics on Wednesday.

    Advice: King Felix had been shaky in his previous two starts and didn't get off to a great beginning Wednesday after Billy Burns hit a first-pitch home run, but the right-hander settled down after that. He gave up just three hits, including another solo homer, on the afternoon, walking one while striking out seven. The win moved him to 15-8 on the year. Hernandez will look to improve on his 3.66 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 158/45 K/BB ratio in Monday's start at the Astros. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:13 pm
  • Montgomery allows 5 runs, records only 4 outs
    Mike Montgomery gave up five runs in only 1 1/3 innings, but took a no-decision as the Mariners overcame the Athletics on Tuesday.

    Advice: The Mariners jumped on Montgomery for a run in the first inning and four in the second, ending his evening earlier than he expected. The lefty, overall, allowed seven hits and a walk while striking out zero. He's had two disaster starts out of his most recent three outings, sending his ERA up to 4.60 with a 1.43 WHIP and a 64/37 K/BB ratio over 90 innings. Montgomery will attempt to rebound in a road start versus the White Sox next. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:41 pm

  • Hughes (back) to resume throwing this week
    Phil Hughes (back) will resume throwing Wednesday or Thursday.

    Advice: Hughes was originally expected to return from the disabled list when first eligible, but that date has already passed and he's just now beginning to play catch. He could be out through the middle of September. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:52 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Burnett (elbow) to throw simulated game Sun.
    A.J. Burnett (elbow) will throw a three-inning simulated game on Sunday.

    Advice: Burnett made it through another bullpen session Tuesday without issue and is ready to take the next step in his rehabilitation from a flexor tendon strain. If everything continues to go smoothly, the veteran right-hander could rejoin the Pirates' rotation in early-to-mid September. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:40 pm

  • CC Sabathia (knee) hopes for quick return
    CC Sabathia (knee) said Tuesday that he hopes to return from the disabled list when he's first eligible.

    Advice: Sabathia has an arthritic right knee, but he received good news when he went for a second opinion Tuesday in New York. Yankees manager Joe Girardi indicated Monday that the southpaw could be done for the season, but he's aiming for a quick return. Sabathia has struggled to the tune of a 5.27 ERA this season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:42 pm
    15-Day DL
     
  • Burnett (elbow) to throw bullpen session Tue.
    A.J. Burnett (elbow) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Tuesday.

    Advice: Burnett has been sidelined since July 30 with a flexor strain in his right elbow. The veteran right-hander received a platelet-rich plasma injection to help with the healing process and recently began throwing off a mound. He's eyeing a return in September. "There’s an intense want-to and I believe he’s also being smart with the guy he needs to be smart with, listening to, on the how-to on the [return-to-pitch] plan," said Pirates manager Clint Hurdle. "I think he’s healthy, proves he’s healthy, it could come sooner than later." Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:10 am

  • Machi escapes ninth with his second save
    Jean Machi allowed two runs in the ninth inning but still got the save as the Red Sox topped the White Sox 5-4 on Monday.

    Advice: Machi allowed a double and two singles, which led to two runs. He was able to get Carlos Sanchez to foul out to end the game before the White Sox could push across the tying run. The Red Sox haven't had many save situations, but Machi and Junichi Tazawa have been getting them when they have become available since Koji Uehara landed on the disabled list. The right-hander hasn't been good this year, but should be picked up in fantasy leagues for the odd save. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:54 pm
  • CC Sabathia (knee) to get second opinion
    CC Sabathia (knee) will receive a second opinion in New York on Tuesday.

    Advice: Yankees manager Joe Girardi said earlier Monday that Sabathia could be done for the season with a right knee injury, but the left-hander will do his best to make it back. "That’s the plan, to try to be back out on the field," Sabathia said. More should be known about his chances on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:16 pm
    15-Day DL
     
  • Lester brilliant but falls short of shutout
    Jon Lester fell one out shy of a shutout Monday, allowing one run over 8 2/3 frames but settling for a no-decision in a 2-1 win over the Indians.

    Advice: Gunning for the first shutout by a Cubs lefty since 2006, Lester hit Abraham Almonte with a pitch to lead off the ninth inning and Francisco Lindor reached on an infield single with one out. He struck out Michael Brantley but then allowed a run-scoring single to Carlos Santana. Lester was then pulled, and Hector Rondon wound up picking up the victory after retiring one batter when Kris Bryant hit a walk-off homer in the ninth. The southpaw surrendered six hits, walked one and struck out six on the day, lowering his ERA to 3.44. He gets the Dodgers this weekend. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:59 pm
  • CC Sabathia (knee) could be done for season
    Yankees placed LHP CC Sabathia on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee injury.

    Advice: Yankees manager Joe Girardi said while making the announcement that Sabathia could be done for the year. Sabathia had surgery on his right knee last season and has needed it drained on two different occasions this summer. If his 2015 is indeed over, the veteran southpaw will finish up with a 5.27 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, and 113/37 K/BB ratio in 138 1/3 innings. He's owed $25 million in 2016. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:04 pm
    15-Day DL
     
  • CC Sabathia (knee) expected to land on DL
    Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Sunday that he expects CC Sabathia (knee) to be placed on the disabled list.

    Advice: Sabathia was scheduled to undergo an MRI after leaving Sunday's start with discomfort in his right knee. As the team had been planning to move to a six-man rotation upon the return of Michael Pineda on Wednesday, it seems likely they'll now opt to keep the traditional five-man alignment until Sabathia is ready to return. Rotoworld.com Aug 23, 2:19 pm
    15-Day DL
     
  • CC Sabathia to undergo MRI on right knee
    CC Sabathia will undergo an MRI after leaving Sunday's start with discomfort in his right knee.

    Advice: That's the knee he had surgery on last season and the one he's had drained on two occasions since spring training. The Yankees had been slated to go to a six-man rotation with Michael Pineda's (forearm) return this week, but it's possible Pineda might now just replace Sabathia. Rotoworld.com Aug 23, 11:56 am
    15-Day DL
     
  • CC Sabathia exits with undisclosed injury
    CC Sabathia left Sunday's start against the Indians with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: Sabathia tallied a strikeout for his second out of the third inning but then had to walk off the field with an apparent malady. The Yankees should provide an update on him shortly. Rotoworld.com Aug 23, 11:22 am
    15-Day DL
     
  • Phil Hughes (back) yet to resume throwing
    Phil Hughes (back) has yet to resume throwing.

    Advice: The Twins had been hoping that Hughes would be ready for activation when first eligible on August 25, but obviously that's not going to happen. He's been limited to pool workouts to this point and feels minor irritation when he makes certain movements. "He’s not throwing," manager Paul Molitor said. "He’s better than he was, obviously. He’s just not turning around as fast as we hoped he would at this point." It sounds like Hughes won't be back until September. Tyler Duffey will continue to fill in. Rotoworld.com Aug 23, 6:53 am
    15-Day DL

  • Carlos Rodon solid for seven innings
    Carlos Rodon yielded three runs -- one earned -- over seven innings against the Mariners on Saturday.

    Advice: A Carlos Sanchez error opened the door for a three-run sixth inning that could have been quite a bit worse if Rodon didn't induce a double-play ball from Jesus Montero with two runs already in. Rodon threw 116 pitches in this one, which could be considered a few too many with the White Sox not going anywhere this year. He really seems to have hit his stride these last three starts, but one wonders if fatigue will become a factor down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Aug 22, 10:10 pm
  • Moore strikes out 16 batters at AAA Durham
    Matt Moore struck out 16 batters in six innings Saturday evening at Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: That's a new Durham record. Moore was optioned to the minors on August 3 after going 1-3 with an 8.78 ERA over his first six starts for the Rays coming off Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. The 26-year-old left-hander should be back in the majors soon. Rotoworld.com Aug 22, 5:57 pm

  • Felix Hernandez gives up four runs
    Felix Hernandez yielded four runs in six innings Friday in a loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: It wasn't as bad as last week's drubbing by the Red Sox, but Hernandez gave up nine more hits tonight and saw his ERA rise to 3.74. He's recorded just one quality start in his last five outings, which rates as a stunning display of mediocrity from the guy who still looked like a Cy Young contender a month ago. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 10:35 pm
  • Diamondbacks put Hellickson on 15-day DL
    Diamondbacks placed RHP Jeremy Hellickson on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

    Advice: Hellickson suffered the injury Monday in his start against the Pirates, leaving after 5 1/3 innings of one-run ball. He is probably going to miss around three weeks of action. Randall Delgado will take the hill in his place this Saturday against the Reds. Rotoworld.com Aug 20, 11:59 am
    15-Day DL

  • Jon Lester gets pounded by Tigers
    Jon Lester was lit up for seven runs and three homers in 2 1/3 innings by the Tigers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Lester's four-game winning streak was snapped. It was both his shortest outing of the season and his most runs allowed as a Cub. He was supposed to get away from the Tigers now that he's in the NL, but he's faced them twice this season and gotten rocked both times. Just two of his 11 career regular-season starts against the Tigers were quality starts. Rotoworld.com Aug 19, 9:08 pm
