  • Brad Peacock loses to Angels
    Brad Peacock surrendered seven runs -- five earned -- in 4 2/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Peacock had a nice outing against the Angels five days ago, but the rematch turned ugly, erasing a lot of the good he did in his first four starts after joining the Astros rotation this month (2.25 ERA in 20 IP). He'll make next to nothing next year, so the Astros will probably keep him around as an option for the fifth spot in their rotation. Still, they do have greater talents to pick from.

  • Edwin Jackson gives up five runs in loss
    Edwin Jackson was tagged for five runs in six innings Friday in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Jackson turned in some nice outings for the Padres, but the end result was still a 5.89 ERA in 13 starts. He'll have to settle for a minor league contract as a free agent this winter. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:01 pm
  • Merritt notches first major league victory
    Ryan Merritt notched his first major league win on Friday after tossing five innings of one-run ball against the Royals.

    Advice: Expectations were low for the assignment, as Merritt was simply filling in with Corey Kluber sidelined, but he was brilliant in his first major league start. The former 16th round pick held the Royals to just three hits while walking none and striking out four. He kept them off the board after an RBI single from Eric Hosmer in the first inning and retired the final 13 batters he faced. The Indians couldn’t have asked for much better.

  • Tyrell Jenkins leaves game with arm injury
    Tyrell Jenkins was removed from Friday's game against the Tigers with what has been diagnosed as ulnar neuritis in his right arm.

    Advice: Jenkins will be re-evaluated on Saturday, but it's safe to say that his 2016 season is finished. He finishes his rookie campaign with a 5.88 ERA and 26/33 K/BB ratio over 52 innings of work. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:51 pm

  • Kimbrel converts 31st save of season
    Craig Kimbrel wiggled out of a shaky ninth inning Friday against the Blue Jays for his 31st save of the season.

    Advice: Kimbrel was pulled after walking three straight batters in his last appearance against the Yankees and the control was again on issue on Friday. He issued a pair of walks in the frame, but managed to strike out Dioner Navarro swinging to end the threat and lock down the victory. Kimbrel has only blown two saves this season, but he has looked much more human than we’ve been accustomed to in his career. How he handles the pressure of the postseason will be interesting. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:47 pm
  • Estrada gives up one run in no-decision
    Marco Estrada tossed five innings of one-run ball Friday in a no-decision against the Red Sox.

    Advice: The only run scored on an RBI single from David Ortiz in the first inning. Estrada gave up just four hits in all while walking two and striking out four. He left in position for the victory, but Toronto’s bullpen coughed up the lead. Estrada allowed just two runs combined over his final three starts and will wrap up the regular season with a 3.48 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 165/65 K/BB ratio over 176 innings. It was unrealistic to expect a repeat of his 3.13 ERA from last season, but he’s been an important part of Toronto’s rotation once again. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:47 pm
  • Andriese gives up three runs in loss Friday
    Matt Andriese struggled in Friday's loss to the Rangers, allowing three runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings.

    Advice: On the plus side for fantasy owners, Andriese did punch out six on the evening while walking one. Most of the damage against him came via the long ball, with Rougned Odor and Carlos Beltran each blasting solo home runs. He finishes an inconsistent 2016 campaign with a 4.37 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 109/25 K/BB ratio across 127 2/3 frames. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:26 pm
  • Ottavino converts his seventh save
    Adam Ottavino tossed a perfect ninth inning Friday against the Brewers for his seventh save of the season.

    Advice: Ottavino struck out two out of the three batters he faced. The 30-year-old is just 7-for-12 in save chances this season, but he has converted five out of his last six chances. He owns an impressive 2.42 ERA and 32/7 K/BB ratio over 26 innings in his first year back from Tommy John surgery. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:14 pm
  • Suter gives up four runs in spot-start
    Brent Suter gave up four runs over five innings in a loss to the Rockies on Friday.

    Advice: Tough assignment for a spot-start. Suter, who was filling in for the injured Taylor Jungmann, gave up 10 hits, including a two-run homer to Nolan Arenado. The 27-year-old has posted a 3.32 ERA and 15/5 K/BB ratio over 21 2/3 innings since his call-up in late August. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:14 pm
  • Jake Buchanan fires five scoreless in victory
    Jake Buchanan earned his first victory of the season on Friday, firing five scoreless innings in a spot start against the Reds.

    Advice: Pressed into emergency duty for the injured Jason Hammel, Buchanan scattered just two hits and a walk while punching out three in the fine performance. He isn't going to be included on the postseason roster, but it's nice to see the right-hander finish his season on a high note. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:07 pm
  • Josh Smith pitches well in loss to Cubs
    Josh Smith pitched well in a losing effort against the Cubs on Friday, allowing two runs (one earned) on three hits over five-plus innings of work.

    Advice: Smith struck out one and walked one on the evening. He retired the first 12 batters that he faced in order but started to tire in the fifth inning, where he surrendered a solo homer to Ben Zobrist. He came back out for the sixth but was pulled after loading the bases. The right-hander finishes the 2016 campaign with a 4.68 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 48/26 K/BB ratio across 59 2/3 innings.

  • Luis Severino to start for Yankees Saturday
    Luis Severino will start for the Yankees on Saturday against the Orioles.

    Advice: He's taking the hill in place of Masahiro Tanaka who has been shut down for the year. Severino has appeared in 21 games (10 starts) for the Yankees this season, compiling a 5.75 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 63/23 K/BB ratio across 67 1/3 innings. He'll look to play spoiler against the division-rival O's on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:38 pm

  • Jake Buchanan to make spot start Friday
    Jake Buchanan will start on Friday versus the Reds.

    Advice: He's filling in for Jason Hammel, who was scratched due to right elbow tightness. Buchanan has made just one relief appearance for the Cubs this month but held a 4.34 ERA over 24 appearances -- 22 starts -- for Triple-A Iowa. He's not a desirable streaming option. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:55 am
  • Friedrich mired down by big sixth inning
    Christian Friedrich couldn't make it out of the sixth inning in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers, allowing five runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Friedrich surrendered an RBI double to Joc Pederson in the fifth inning, but the real killer frame was the sixth. He allowed four runs in that one. Over the course of 129 1/3 innings this season, the 29-year-old southpaw pitched to an underwhelming 4.80 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 100/52 K/BB ratio. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:59 pm
  • Duffy yields eight hits, four runs to Twins
    Danny Duffy allowed four runs on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings in a no-decision Thursday.

    Advice: Duffy walked two and struck out just three in the uncharacteristic start, leaving his record at 12-3 to finish the year. And what a year it was for the southpaw, who wasn't even in the Royals' rotation to start the season before moving to a starting role in mid-May. Duffy was dominant at times as a starter and ends the year with a 3.51 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 188/42 K/BB ratio over 179 2/3 innings overall. A full year in the rotation could yield even more good things for Duffy next season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:52 pm

  • Oh suffers blown save, gets win against Reds
    Seung Hwan Oh suffered a blown save Thursday, allowing a run on two hits, but ended up getting the win against the Reds.

    Advice: A day after leaving an outing with groin discomfort, Oh was back in there but didn't get the job done, giving up a leadoff double and eventually allowing the run to score on a soft infield hit with two outs. Oh then struck out Adam Duvall to end the frame, his second strikeout in the inning. Blown save aside, the 34-year-old didn't show many ill effects from the groin injury, and while he'll likely be given Friday off, the right-hander should be ready and able to pitch against the Pirates this weekend. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:09 pm
  • Josh Smith to start Friday versus Cubs
    Josh Smith will start for the Reds on Friday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Smith tossed three innings of one-run ball in a spot start versus the Cubs on September 20. The right-hander has been used primarily in relief this year and probably won't go more than four innings on Friday afternoon at Great American Ball Park. He should not be considered a viable fantasy streaming option. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:12 pm

  • Oh (groin) says he should be available Thurs.
    Seung Hwan Oh (groin) said he expects to be available out of the Cardinals' bullpen Thursday.

    Advice: Oh was lifted from an appearance Wednesday after experiencing renewed discomfort in his groin while trying to field a ball in the top of the ninth inning, but this his crunch time for the Wild Card-hunting Redbirds. "It’s nothing worse than what I dealt with before," said Oh with the help of translator Eugene Koo. "It’s totally fine, but we’ve still got a few more games to play so [manager Mike Matheny] told me to focus on tomorrow." The right-hander from South Korea has registered a brilliant 1.85 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, and 100 strikeouts over his first 77 2/3 major league innings. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:00 am
  • Craig Kimbrel gives up four runs in loss
    Craig Kimbrel walked three and gave up four runs without retiring a batter Wednesday against the Yankees.

    Advice: No matter how many strikeouts he's recorded, Kimbrel hasn't much moved the dial for the Red Sox in the regular season this year, not with his 3.35 ERA and five losses. Still, the postseason was a huge factor in the team's decision to pay such a high price to get him, and there's still time for Kimbrel to prove his value then. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:29 pm
  • Seung Hwan Oh has renewed groin discomfort
    Seung Hwan Oh said he felt renewed discomfort in his groin in the ninth inning Wednesday.

    Advice: Oh was pulled after trying to field a comebacker off the bat of Jose Peraza in the top of the ninth inning. He spun quickly to throw to first base after picking up the ball and did not look comfortable in that process. This could be the end of the road for the impressive South Korean rookie, assuming the Cardinals can't climb into a National League Wild Card spot and advance to the NLDS. They fell 2-1 to the lowly Reds on Wednesday night in St. Louis. Kevin Siegrist may be called on for save chances over these final four regular-season tilts. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:24 pm
  • Severino ejected from Monday's game
    Luis Severino was ejected from Monday's game against the Blue Jays in the second inning.

    Advice: Severino grazed Josh Donaldson in the elbow with a pitch in the bottom of the first inning and Blue Jays hurler J.A. Happ answered by hitting Chase Headley with a pitch in the top of the second. Severino responded by hitting Justin Smoak with a pitch in the bottom of the frame, which led to a benches-clearing brawl. Yankees manager Joe Girardi, pitching coach Larry Rothschild, and bench coach Rob Thomson have also been ejected. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:49 pm

  • Severino limited to around 50 pitches Mon.
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Luis Severino will be limited to around 50 pitches on Monday.

    Advice: Severino has been pitching out of the bullpen this month, but he's making a spot start in place of Masahiro Tanaka (forearm) for Monday's game with the Blue Jays. Most fantasy owners can skip this matchup. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:46 pm

  • Marco Estrada superb over seven Sunday
    Marco Estrada limited the Yankees to one run over seven innings but took a no-decision in a 4-3 victory for the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Estrada struck out seven, walked two and yielded just four hits, but one of them was a solo shot by Didi Gregorius to tie things up in the seventh. It was reported earlier this month that Estrada has been pitching through a herniated disc in his back, but the righty has now allowed just one run over his last 14 frames. His regular season concludes next weekend in Boston. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:57 pm
  • Peacock yields one run in five innings Sat.
    Brad Peacock held the Angels to one run in five innings, allowing only one hit and two walks while striking out seven batters on Saturday but had to settle for a no-decision.

    Advice: His bullpen got hammered to blow the game in the late innings. The only hit he allowed was an RBI double to Albert Pujols with Mike Trout aboard. He pitched very well but was removed after only 69 pitches. This was just his fifth start and the Astros didn't want to push him too hard. He owns a great 2.67 ERA after 27 innings. He has yet to earn a win or a loss this year. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:17 pm
  • Andriese holds Red Sox to two runs Saturday
    Matt Andriese limited the Red Sox to two runs over six innings in a no-decision Saturday.

    Advice: Andriese put the Rays in a position to win, and he actually left with the lead, but the bullpen wasn't able to seal the deal to get the right-hander his ninth win. Andriese yielded just four hits and a walk while striking out five in his six innings. The 27-year-old has now turned in three straight starts allowing two runs or fewer. He'll take his last turn of the season Thursday against the White Sox. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:24 pm
  • Edwin Jackson earns win over Giants
    Edwin Jackson beat the Giants on Friday after allowing two runs in six innings.

    Advice: The Giants struggled to get to Jackson even though he walked five batters. It was a carbon copy of Jackson's first start for the Padres on July 17, when he allowed two earned runs in 6 1/3 innings in defeating the Giants. He walked five in that one, too. Jackson is 5-5 with a 5.75 ERA in 12 starts for the Padres. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:03 am
  • Danny Duffy clobbered in loss to Tigers
    Danny Duffy was clobbered in Friday's loss to the Tigers, surrendering six runs on seven hits in only 3 2/3 innings.

    Advice: The left-hander walked four and struck out four on the afternoon. The long ball was his undoing in this one, with Victor Martinez, Justin Upton and Cameron Maybin each leaving the yard. Now 12-3 on the season, Duffy will carry a 3.43 ERA and 1.13 WHIP into his final start of the season against the Twins on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:22 pm
    1:15 pm vs Cle
     
  • Christian Friedrich loses shutout in eighth
    Christian Friedrich faltered late in Thursday's loss to the Giants, surrendering two runs on three hits over seven-plus innings.

    Advice: Friedrich and Giants starter Jeff Samardzija were locked in a fantastic pitcher's duel over the first seven innings, with both pitchers posting goose eggs. The Padres' issues began when Friedrich trotted back out to start the eighth inning. He surrendered a double and a single to open the frame. Both of those runners would come around to score after he was lifted from the proceedings. For the season, the 29-year-old southpaw has pitched to a 4.66 ERA and 1.42 WHIP. He will finish out his season with a home start against the Dodgers next time he toes the rubber. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:20 pm
  • Kimbrel punches out two in earning 29th save
    Craig Kimbrel struck out two Orioles in a perfect ninth inning Thursday, earning his 29th save of the year.

    Advice: Kimbrel drew the bottom third of the Orioles order and made quick work of it, fanning J.J. Hardy and pinch-hitter Hyun Soo Kim before getting Matt Wieters to fly out to end it. Kimbrel has now rattled off seven scoreless outings and hasn't allowed an earned run since August 9. The 28-year-old has a 2.52 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 80/24 K/BB ratio over 50 innings to go along with those 29 saves. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:08 pm
  • Smith yields on run in three innings in start
    Josh Smith allowed a run over three innings of work in a spot start Tuesday against the Cubs.

    Advice: In a bit of a cruel twist, it was Smith, who was actually pretty good, that ended up taking the loss. Meaningless statistics aside, the 29-year-old gave up three hits and walked two in his first start of the year. Smith should go back to being a reliever moving forward. He'll take take a 4.86 ERA with him to the bullpen. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:31 pm
    1:10 pm vs ChC
     
  • Craig Kimbrel nails down 28th save Tuesday
    Craig Kimbrel pitched around a walk to record his 28th save of the season in Tuesday's win over the Orioles.

    Advice: On to protect a three-run lead, Kimbrel issued a two-out walk to Pedro Alvarez but got J.J. Hardy to ground into a fielder's choice to end it. He had some ups and downs in the first half, but Kimbrel has been dominant since the All-Star break with just one run and five hits allowed. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:04 pm
  • Marco Estrada dominates Mariners in win
    Marco Estrada allowed just one hit over seven scoreless innings and struck out eight in defeating the Mariners on Monday.

    Advice: Estrada was lifted after walking Leonys Martin on four pitches to start the eighth. The Jays got through that frame unscathed, but barely held on to win 3-2 in the ninth after Martin homered. Estrada is 9-9 with a 3.62 ERA. He's struck out 154 in 164 innings this year. During his fantastic 2015 season, he struck out just 131 in 181 innings. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:52 pm
  • Brad Peacock solid versus A's
    Brad Peacock allowed two runs and three hits over 5 1/3 innings Monday against the A's.

    Advice: Unfortunately, two of the three hits were homers. Still, it was a decent outing against an offense that has been scorching recently. Peacock will get the Angels at home next, making him a decent streaming option. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:15 pm
