  • Allen Webster pitches well in no-decision
    Allen Webster pitched well in a no-decision against the Athletics on Sunday, allowing three runs (one earned) on six hits over his five innings of work.

    Advice: Webster struck out two on the afternoon while walking one. He gave up a pair of unearned runs in the third inning and was tagged for a solo homer by Stephen Vogt in the fourth, but that was the extent of the damage against him. It's unclear if he'll draw another turn through the rotation, if he does he would be lined up to take on the Cubs in Chicago on Friday. Yesterday, 5:15 pm
  • Teheran bombed for eight runs by the Braves
    Julio Teheran was bombed for eight earned runs in 4 1/3 innings Sunday as the Braves fell to the Yankees.

    Advice: Jacoby Ellsbury cranked a three-run homer in the second inning and Chase Headley and Stephen Drew both hit two-run shots in the third. It was one of the worst outings of the year for Teheran, who has mixed blowout losses with quality starts throughout his disappointing 2015. He'll get the Nationals on the road next. Yesterday, 2:29 pm
  • McCullers walks four in loss to Twins
    Lance McCullers pitched unevenly in Sunday's loss to the Twins, walking four while allowing three runs on four hits over six innings.

    Advice: Despite some control woes, McCullers managed to hold the Twins to one run heading into the sixth inning. At which point, Eduardo Nunez launched a two-run homer against the 21-year-old right-hander. He'll carry a still-strong 3.21 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 93/32 K/BB ratio (over 89 2/3 innings) into his next scheduled start, a home rematch with these same Twinkies. Yesterday, 2:21 pm
  • Lamb whiffs eight Brewers in loss
    John Lamb pitched well in Sunday's loss to the Brewers, allowing two runs on five hits over six innings.

    Advice: Lamb struck out eight without walking a batter. Runs scored on a Ryan Braun solo homer in the first inning and a Jonathan Lucroy RBI single in the third, but he otherwise kept the Brewer offense quiet. Through four major league starts, he holds a tough 5.24 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 29/5 K/BB ratio over 22 1/3 innings. The strikeout rate is certainly spicy, though the rest of his numbers are less exciting. Lamb will head home to face these same Brewers in his next scheduled start. Yesterday, 1:58 pm
  • Sean Manaea extends unbeaten streak
    Athletics LHP prospect Sean Manaea tossed seven shutout frames Saturday in a win for Double-A Midland.

    Advice: He matched a season-high by throwing 102 pitches. The 23-year-old has gone 5-0 with a 2.21 ERA during his seven-game unbeaten streak. Opponents have hit .223 against him over that span with 44 strikeouts in 148 at-bats. Manaea was acquired from Kansas City last month in the Ben Zobrist trade. Yesterday, 1:55 pm

  • Shields limits Phillies to one run in a win
    James Shields was effective in Sunday's win versus the Phillies, firing seven innings of one-run ball.

    Advice: Shields allowed six hits and a walk while striking out eight. The only run came on a Cameron Rupp solo home run in the second inning. The right-hander picked up his 10th win with the effort, and now has a 3.78 ERA with a 1.31 WHIP and a 184/61 K/BB ratio in 171 1/3 innings. Shields will host the Dodgers in his next start. Yesterday, 1:54 pm
  • De La Rosa spins diamonds against Pirates
    Jorge De La Rosa pitched beautifully in Sunday's win over the Pirates, firing six innings of scoreless ball.

    Advice: De La Rosa allowed just four hits while striking out seven and walking one on the afternoon. The Pirates couldn't even find an extra-base hit against the 34-year-old southpaw. For the season, he's the owner of a 4.40 ERA and 1.40 WHIP. He'll try to duplicate Sunday's results in a home date with the Giants next time out. Yesterday, 1:39 pm
  • Karns gets no-decision, gives up 2 ER in 5 IP
    Nate Karns gave up two runs in five innings, taking a no-decision in Sunday's win versus the Royals.

    Advice: Both runs scored in the third when Ben Zobrist and Lorenzo Cain each hit run-scoring singles. Karns gave up six hits and a walk while striking out five on the afternoon. The right-hander hasn't been able to pitch deep into games lately, reaching the sixth inning only once in his last five starts. Nevertheless, he carries a productive 3.69 ERA with a 1.27 WHIP and a 141/55 K/BB ratio over 144 innings. Karns will face the Yankees on the road in his next outing. Yesterday, 1:33 pm
  • Syndergaard stumbles late in a no-decision
    Noah Syndergaard fell apart late in Sunday's win over the Red Sox, taking a no-decision in allowing four runs in 6 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Syndergaard allowed his first runs on David Ortiz's two-run home run in the sixth. He allowed an RBI double to Jackie Bradley, Jr. before departing, but reliever Hansel Robles allowed his inherited runner to score. All told, Syndergaard gave up six hits and a walk while striking out three. He now has a 3.31 ERA with a 1.14 WHIP and a 129/29 K/BB ratio over 122 1/3 innings. The right-hander is on track to face the Marlins in Miami next, but the Mets are aiming to limit his and Matt Harvey's innings the rest of the way. Yesterday, 1:22 pm
  • Alfredo Simon lit up by Blue Jays
    Alfredo Simon was torched for six runs on six hits -- including four home runs -- over five innings in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Simon never had a chance, serving up a couple dingers in the first, another one in the second and a final one in the fourth. The Blue Jays are creaming everyone these days, but this outing was a continuation of a rotten stretch for Simon, who has allowed at least four runs in 11 of his last 13 starts. He'll get the Indians next. Yesterday, 1:17 pm
  • Vidal Nuno to start for Mariners on Monday
    Vidal Nuno will start for the Mariners on Monday in place of Felix Hernandez.

    Advice: The M's have decided to skip Hernandez's next start in order to keep him fresh for the remainder of the season, so Nuno will get another spot start. The 28-year-old hurler sports a 2.88 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 53/13 K/BB ratio over 56 1/3 innings on the season. He could be worth a look as a streaming option against the Astros on Monday. Yesterday, 1:13 pm

  • Tomlin throws 7 effective innings to beat LAA
    Josh Tomlin picked up the win on Sunday, holding the Angels to two runs in seven innings.

    Advice: Tomlin made only one mistake, resulting in a solo home run to Grant Green in the sixth inning. He allowed the leadoff batter to reach on a single to begin the eighth inning before giving way to Zach McAllister, who allowed the inherited runner to score. Tomlin allowed six hits, walked none, and struck out eight in the effort. He's been effective in four starts thus far, owning a 3.08 ERA with a 0.76 WHIP and a 26/2 K/BB ratio in 26 1/3 innings. The right-hander will take on the Tigers in a road match next. Yesterday, 1:02 pm
  • Tim Lincecum (hips) suffers setback
    Tim Lincecum (hips) recently had a setback while rehabbing at the Giants' spring training complex.

    Advice: Lincecum was diagnosed with a degenerative hip condition in mid-July but will now send his MRIs to another specialist. According to Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News, the right-hander is "exploring all treatment options." His status for the remainder of the season is up in the air. Yesterday, 11:27 am

  • Pirates won't call up Tyler Glasnow
    Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Sunday that the club doesn't plan to call up pitching prospect Tyler Glasnow in September.

    Advice: "He is not in our plans right now," Huntington said. Glasnow boasts a 1.95 ERA and 127/38 K/BB ratio over 101 2/3 innings this season across three levels, including a 0.81 ERA in six Triple-A outings. His workload isn't an issue, but the Pirates apparently want to hold off on adding him to the 40-man roster. Yesterday, 10:45 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. Yesterday, 8:18 am

  • Diamondbacks recall Allen Webster from AAA
    Diamondbacks recalled RHP Allen Webster from Triple-A Reno.

    Advice: Webster will start for the Snakes in Sunday's series finale against Oakland. He's a poor fantasy bet. Saturday, 8:42 pm
  • Lincecum (hips) could rejoin team by Sept. 1
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tim Lincecum (hips) will be ready to return by September 1.

    Advice: Lincecum or Tim Hudson could even supplant Matt Cain in the rotation, Bochy hinted. Lincecum has been out since the end of June, first with a forearm contusion and later with degenerative hips. Even if he does return to the rotation, there is little left in the fantasy tank for Lincecum. Wednesday, 6:16 pm
    15-Day DL

  • 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. Tuesday, 10:41 pm

  • Syndergaard wins despite allowing two homers
    Noah Syndergaard gave up a pair of two-run home runs to the Phillies over five innings on Tuesday but still got the win.

    Advice: Syndergaard had the bat-missing stuff, as he struck out nine, but the Phillies figured him out in the third inning as Freddy Galvis and Ryan Howard each hit two-run home runs. He gave up four hits and two walks overall. The Mets are alternating skipping Syndergaard's and Matt Harvey's starts the rest of the way, and it's Syndergaard's turn next. He'll ride the pine with a 3.19 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and a 126/28 K/BB ratio over 115 2/3 innings. Tuesday, 8:41 pm
  • Simon smoked by the Angels, taking 8th loss
    Alfredo Simon took his eighth loss of the season on Tuesday versus the Angels after surrendering eight runs in 4 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Simon was coming off of a one-hit shutout against the Rangers and things couldn't have gone any differently for him on Tuesday. The Angels jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning, then tacked on two runs in each of the fourth and fifth innings. Simon uncorked three wild pitches, walked four, allowed nine hits, and struck out two. The inconsistent right-hander sports an ugly 4.89 ERA with a 1.43 WHIP and a 93/53 K/BB ratio over 141 2/3 innings. Simon will have his hands full the next time he takes the mound, as he'll face the Blue Jays in Toronto. Tuesday, 8:24 pm
  • Karns allows four walks, five runs to Twins
    Nate Karns allowed five runs over three innings in Tuesday's no-decision against the Twins.

    Advice: Karns was done in by walks, issuing four free passes on the night, two of which came around to score. One big swing by Miguel Sano in the first inning also accounted for three of the runs. Karns' struggles haven't been the norm this year, as he is 7-5 with a 3.69 ERA and 1.27 WHIP through 25 starts. The right-hander will meet the Royals on Sunday. Tuesday, 8:17 pm
  • Lamb allows 3 runs in 5 innings, loses to LAD
    John Lamb was saddled with the loss on Tuesday, giving up three runs in five innings to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Lamb allowed an RBI double to Yasiel Puig in the first inning and a two-run home run to Justin Turner in the third. They were two of five hits he served up along with three walks and six strikeouts. Major league hitters haven't had too much trouble hitting him in three starts thus far, as Lamb carries a 6.06 ERA, but he does have a 21/5 K/BB ratio over 16 1/3 innings. He'll look for better results when he takes the hill in Milwaukee against the Brewers. Tuesday, 8:09 pm
  • Tomlins strikes out seven in win over Brewers
    Josh Tomlin allowed four runs over six innings, striking out seven, in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Tomlin oscillated between being nearly unhittable and serving up dingers, with three of his five hits allowed going for homers. Tomlin didn't walk a batter in the contest. The right-hander is now 2-1 with a 3.26 ERA, 0.72 WHIP and 18/2 K/BB ratio over 19 1/3 innings on the year. A real test is on deck when Tomlin faces the Blue Jays in Toronto on Monday. Tuesday, 7:48 pm
  • Shields serves up 5 runs, loses to Nationals
    James Shields was handed the loss on Tuesday after serving up five runs in 5 2/3 innings to the Nationals.

    Advice: Shields allowed a two-run home run to Wilson Ramos in the second inning, then RBI doubles in the third and fifth innings. In the sixth, he allowed a two-out single before departing, and that runner would later score on a grand slam. Overall, the right-hander gave up eight hits and four walks while striking out two. If the season ended today, Shields' 3.89 ERA would be his highest since 2010 when he was with the Rays. He'll try to rebound in Philadelphia against the Phillies next. Tuesday, 7:35 pm
  • Rays don't plan to shut down Karns
    Rays manager Kevin Cash said there are no plans to shut down Nate Karns.

    Advice: Karns is at 136 innings going into Tuesday's start. He threw 157 1/3 innings last season between the majors and the minors, so there shouldn't be any restrictions with his workload down the stretch. "Right now I feel great," said Karns, who has a 3.44 ERA this season. "I’m in a rhythm. I’m ready to push through. If the team needs me to go 200 innings this year, I feel like I’m ready for it." Tuesday, 8:32 am
  • Teheran pitches into the 8th to beat Rockies
    Julio Teheran went 7 1/3 innings, allowing three runs, to earn the win on Monday versus the Rockies.

    Advice: The Rockies slugged a pair of solo home runs early, with Charlie Blackmon going yard in the first and Ben Paulsen doing the same in the second. Teheran threw up zeroes the rest of the way until the eighth inning, when he yielded an RBI single to Brandon Barnes before departing. All told, he gave up four hits and a walk while striking out five. The right-hander now has a 4.29 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP, and a 135/54 K/BB ratio over 157 1/3 innings. He'll match up with the Yankees at home in his next start. Monday, 7:18 pm
  • De La Rosa leaky over 7 innings vs. Braves
    Jorge De La Rosa gave up five runs over seven innings, taking the loss on Monday against the Braves.

    Advice: Jonny Gomes bashed a two-run home run in the first and Adonis Garcia followed up with a solo shot in the fourth. Then Gomes hit an RBI single in the fifth and Nick Markakis added an RBI double in the sixth. Overall, De La Rosa gave up nine hits, walked four, and struck out three in an uninspiring start. He'll carry a 4.61 ERA, a 1.42 WHIP, and a 109/60 K/BB ratio over 123 innings into a start in Pittsburgh against the Pirates. Monday, 7:16 pm
  • McCullers returns to fan eight Dodgers
    Making his return to the Astros' rotation, Lance McCullers allowed two runs on eight hits over seven innings in Sunday's no-decision against the Dodgers.

    Advice: The Astros sent McCullers to Double-A Corpus Christi in early August as they look to limit his innings for the season. He returned against the Dodgers on Sunday and showed no ill-effects from the stay at Double-A, striking out eight without walking a batter. Runs scored in the first and fifth innings on a Justin Turner sacrifice fly and a wild pitch, respectively, but the 21-year-old right-hander otherwise kept the boys from Hollywood off the scoreboard. His work this season is a big reason why the Astros continue to lead the AL West and he now boasts a 3.12 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 87/28 K/BB ratio over 83 2/3 innings. Aug 23, 3:08 pm
  • Tyler Glasnow notches first Triple-A win
    Pirates RHP prospect Tyler Glasnow delivered nine strikeouts over 6 1/3 scoreless innings Saturday in a win for Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: It was his first win in five Triple-A starts. Glasnow now owns an impressive 11.48 K/9 across 95 2/3 minor league innings. Opponents have hit just .198 over that span. The 6'8" right-hander has only lost four times this season with his last defeat coming July 26 against Akron. That was Glasnow's last Double-A appearance before his promotion to Indianapolis. Aug 23, 12:49 pm

  • Vidal Nuno pitches into seventh
    Vidal Nuno pitched 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball in a no-decision versus the White Sox on Saturday.

    Advice: Nuno has pitched well in two of his four starts since the Mariners thrust him into the rotation after two months of bullpen work. He'd be just fine as a fifth starter if left there the rest of the way, but he's not promised anything. Aug 22, 10:08 pm
    5:10 pm ^ @Hou
  • Astros recall Lance McCullers for Sun. start
    Astros recalled RHP Lance McCullers from Double-A Corpus Christi.

    Advice: McCullers will rejoin the Astros' starting rotation on Sunday afternoon against the Dodgers. He was sent down to Double-A in early August in an attempt to limit his innings. The 21-year-old right-hander got shelled in last start for Houston, but he boasts a 3.17 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 79/28 K/BB ratio in 76 2/3 total frames (14 starts) this season at the major league level. Aug 22, 7:32 pm
  • Syndergaard to have turn skipped soon
    Mets manager Terry Collins confirmed Friday that the club will skip Noah Syndergaard for one turn in the rotation soon.

    Advice: Matt Harvey is being skipped Sunday, and it will likely be next week when it's Syndergaard's turn. The club is simply keeping an eye on the young righty's workload, as his 130 1/3 innings this season is just just shy of last season's career-high 133 frames. The plan is to just skip Syndergaard once, although the Mets will go with a six-man rotation in September with Steven Matz (lat) expected back. Aug 21, 2:54 pm
