  • Zimmermann says shoulder will be fine
    Jordan Zimmermann said he'll be fine for his next start after getting hit in the pitching shoulder by a line drive on Saturday.

    Advice: The Nationals let Zimmermann finish the sixth inning but then pulled him after 84 pitches. However, it sounds like there's no level of concern. "It's not going to affect me or anything," Zimmermann said. "It got a little tight after I came out in the sixth inning. We made the decision it wouldn't be smart to go back out there and keep throwing. It was a couple inches away from hitting me in the face." Rotoworld.com

  • Rubby De La Rosa won't make another start
    Rubby De La Rosa will not make another start this season.

    Advice: It's possible he'll appear in relief, but knuckleballer Steven Wright is expected to start on Friday in De La Rosa's place. The Red Sox are just keeping the youngster's innings in check, as De La Rosa has easily reached his career high with 160 frames this season between the minors and majors. Rotoworld.com

  • Morse (oblique) might not play vs. Dodgers
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Saturday that Michael Morse (oblique) is "questionable" for the upcoming series against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Morse was able to come off the bench Friday, but his strained left oblique is still an issue. His status for the final week of the season is very much up in the air. Rotoworld.com

  • Pagan (back) questionable for Dodgers series
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Saturday that Angel Pagan (back) is "questionable" to play in the upcoming series versus the Dodgers.

    Advice: Pagan returned to action Friday but worse, so he's flown to San Diego to have his ailing back examined by team orthopedist Dr. Ken Akizuki. The Giants are fighting for a playoff spot and will obviously do everything they can to get him back in the lineup, but it's possible we won't see much of him in the final week. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Markakis (shoulder) out again Sunday
    Nick Markakis (shoulder) remained out of the lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Markakis hasn't played since being hit on the right shoulder by a pitch Tuesday. He underwent a precautionary X-ray, which didn't reveal anything serious. The injury not a big concern, as the Orioles are just being cautious since they've already wrapped up the American League East. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Zimmerman getting a day off Sunday
    Ryan Zimmerman is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

  • Could rays trade Hellickson over offseason?
    Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that Jeremy Hellickson's name "has been surfacing" as teams "start putting together lists of pitchers who could be had in trade this offseason."

    Advice: The Rays still have pitching depth even after dealing David Price, so it's possible they could trade Hellickson or someone else in order to add offense. The right-hander has been up-and-down in 12 post-Tommy John surgery starts, but he's under team control through 2016 and posted a 3.06 ERA over his first two-and-a-half big league seasons.

  • Joey Votto (quad) return looking 'doubtful'
    John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer writes that Joey Votto's (quad) return this season is looking "doubtful."

    Advice: Votto has taken batting practice four straight days and ran the bases on Friday, but, according to Reds manager Bryan Price, he's "not pain-free." The club has little to gain in activating Votto for a handful of games. "He's not 100 percent, and he won't be at any time during the rest of this season," Price said. "So the question is, do we want to play him at less than 100 percent? He still hasn't seen any live pitching." Rotoworld.com

  • Weaver picks up 18th win with 7 strong frames
    Jered Weaver improved to 18-8, scattering one run over seven innings as the Angels felled the Rangers by an 8-5 score on Saturday.

    Advice: Weaver seems to be in post-season shape, as he now sports a 1.91 ERA over his last five starts. Against the Rangers, he allowed just five hits and a walk while fanning seven. He'll take a 3.43 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, and 164/63 K/BB ratio into his final start of the regular season on Friday in Seattle against the Mariners. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:15 pm
  • Lewis hammered, Rangers fall to the Angels
    Colby Lewis was hammered for eight runs (seven earned) in five innings en route to a loss against the Angels on Saturday.

    Advice: Lewis gave up three home runs, pushing his season total to 25. He allowed nine hits in total while walking one and striking out three. With one more start to go, Lewis sits on a 5.34 ERA with a 1.52 WHIP and a 126/43 K/BB ratio. Lewis will make his final start at home on Thursday against the Athletics. Rotoworld.com

  • Street retires Rangers in order for 39th save
    Huston Street worked a 1-2-3 ninth inning to pick up his 15th save as an Angel (his 39th overall) in Saturday's victory over the Rangers.

    Advice: It was only the third appearance Street had made dating back to September 7, as the closer had been bothered by a tight right hamstring. The Rangers didn't mount much of a threat against him. Street is 15-for-17 in save chances as an Angel with a 1.50 ERA. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:11 pm
  • House allows two runs in five innings vs MIN
    T.J. House scattered six hits and allowed two runs over five innings in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Twins.

    Advice: This was a much needed win for the Indians, as they desperately attempt to cling to life in the Wild Card race heading into the final week. They're currently 3.5 back of the final playoff slot. House wasn't spectacular, but he mostly held the Twins at bay during his time on the mound. Both of the runs on his line came off of RBI grounders and he was able to limit the damage to singular runs. In addition to the six hits allowed, House walked one and struck out five. In September, House has allowed just three runs in 19 innings. He holds a 3.43 ERA and 1.34 WHIP overall. By the time he takes the mound for his final start of the regular season against the Rays next weekend, House and the Indians should know whether they have any shot at the playoffs. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • De La Rosa allows six runs in loss to Orioles
    Rubby De La Rosa gave up six runs (four earned) on six hits in Saturday's loss to the Orioles.

    Advice: Three of the six runs came via the long ball, as De La Rosa saw taters from Adam Jones and Christian Walker leave the park in the third and fourth innings, respectively. De La Rosa struck out four and walked two over four innings while picking up the loss. So far this season, De La Rosa's numbers, like his team, have split the nexus of mediocrity. A 4.50 ERA, a 1.49 WHIP and a .292 BAA in 100 innings pitched for a 67-87 Red Sox club. Rotoworld.com

  • Angel Pagan out of Saturday's lineup
    Angel Pagan isn't expected to play again this weekend due to back soreness.

    Advice: Pagan started Friday, going 0-for-2 with a walk and a steal in his first appearance in five days. His back felt worse afterwards, and he's considered questionable for the Dodgers series that begins Monday. Juan Perez is in center tonight, with Gregor Blanco playing left. Barring a positive report tomorrow, Pagan won't be an option in mixed leagues for the final week of the season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:00 pm
  • Michael Morse won't play Saturday
    Michael Morse in unavailable Saturday due to more soreness in his oblique.

    Advice: Morse came off the bench Friday in his first appearance since Aug. 31, and his oblique obviously didn't react very well afterwards. He's not expected to play at all this weekend, and his status for next week's Dodgers serious is up in the air. Rotoworld.com

    Yesterday, 12:41 pm
  • Nationals activate Ryan Zimmerman from DL
    Nationals activated INF Ryan Zimmerman from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Zimmerman missed 55 games with a torn hamstring, but has taken at-bats in extended spring training games in recent days and is ready for a return. He will bat sixth and start in left field on Saturday. The Nationals will ease him back into action though, so fantasy owners shouldn't expect him to play every night over the final week of the regular season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:12 pm
  • Juan Uribe not in Dodgers lineup Saturday
    Juan Uribe is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Saturday due to minor tightness in his side.

    Yesterday, 8:39 am
  • Michael Morse returns to action on Friday
    Michael Morse returned to action on Friday, going 0-for-2 with a pair of strikeouts in a loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Morse was not in the starting lineup, appearing as a pinch-hitter for Tim Lincecum in the eighth inning. The good sign, is that he remained in the game to play left field, meaning a return to the lineup should be imminent. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:56 am
  • Angel Pagan steals base in return
    Angel Pagan went 0-for-2 with a walk and a steal before being removed from Friday's game against the Padres.

    Advice: Pagan didn't appear to suffer a setback; the Giants probably just weren't looking for him to play a full nine innings in his return from a sore back. The start tonight was his first in five days. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 10:05 pm
  • Hellickson struggles in loss to White Sox
    Jeremy Hellickson struggled in a losing effort against the White Sox on Friday, surrendering four runs on seven hits in just 4 2/3 innings of work.

    Advice: Hellickson walked two and struck out one on the night. He cruised through the first four innings unscathed, but the White Sox strung together five hits and a walk to scratch out all four runs before chasing Hellickson in the fifth. He'll head into his final start of the 2014 campaign (against the Red Sox in Boston on Thursday) with a 1-4 record, 3.96 ERA and 1.37 WHIP. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 7:42 pm
  • Michael Morse (oblique) says he's ready to go
    Michael Morse (oblique) informed manager Bruce Bochy on Friday that he's ready to rejoin the Giants starting lineup.

    Advice: He isn't in there for Friday's contest against the Padres, but could return at some point over the weekend. With Brandon Belt and Angel Pagan also returning on Friday, the Giants are getting fully healthy at just the right time as they march towards the playoffs. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 4:31 pm
  • Angels could use three-man rotation in ALDS
    Angels manager Mike Scioscia indicated Friday that the team could utilize a three-man rotation in the American League Division Series.

    Advice: Assuming Matt Shoemaker makes it back healthy, it would presumably be he, C.J. Wilson and Jered Weaver, with Weaver getting the call to work on short rest. Given the critical importance of those games and the uncertainty surrounding the rest of the rotation, it certainly seems like a viable strategy on the Halos end. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 4:27 pm
  • Angel Pagan returns to Giants lineup Friday
    Angel Pagan has returned to the Giants starting lineup on Friday.

    Advice: Pagan had been sidelined since Sunday after experiencing renewed tightness in his back. He should still be considered day-to-day over the final week and a half of the season, as the Giants won't want to push him too hard and risk another re-injury. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 4:17 pm
  • Zimmerman (hamstring) to be activated Sat.
    Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

    Advice: Zimmerman went 3-for-8 with a home run while getting in some at-bats at the Nationals' spring training complex and, most importantly, apparently didn't have issues with his right hamstring. Don't expect him to play every day, but Zimmerman is obviously a nice bat for the surging Nats to welcome back. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 2:17 pm
  • Markakis (shoulder) out again on Friday

  • Joey Votto (quad) takes batting practice
    Joey Votto (quad) took batting practice Tuesday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's done so since landing on the disabled list in early July with a distal left quad strain. Votto has upped his workouts recently and is with the Reds on the road, so it appears that a return before the end of the season is still a possibility. Even if he does come back, however, he'll likely get in only a handful of games. Rotoworld.com

  • Morse (oblique) should be ready by Friday
    Michael Morse (oblique) should be ready to return by Friday.

    Advice: Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that Morse was "tentative" during batting practice Monday, so it will likely take him another couple of days to swing with full intensity. The 32-year-old has been sidelined since late August with a strained left oblique. Rotoworld.com

  • Lewis limits Braves to one run over seven
    Colby Lewis limited the Braves to one run over seven innings in a win Sunday.

    Advice: Lewis scattered five hits, with Ryan Doumit's solo homer counting as the only run against him. The start was the first time he's allowed fewer than three runs since a complete game shutout on August 5. The win moved him to 10-13, the first time he's reached double-digit wins since 2011 and just the fourth time he's done it in his career. Lewis will look for his 11th win Saturday at the Angels.

  • Morse to take BP Monday or Tuesday
    Michael Morse (oblique) won't take batting practice until Monday or Tuesday.

    Advice: Morse had been swinging, but only at about 50 percent. He should return to the lineup shortly if he can swing at full effort Monday or Tuesday, but there are certainly no guarantees that will happen. Morse has yet to play this month due to a strained left oblique. Rotoworld.com

  • Indians to skip T.J. House's next turn
    The Indians will skip T.J. House's next turn in the rotation following last week's rainout.

    Advice: House holds a 0.86 ERA over his last three outings, but they can make this move in order to limit his innings a bit and also set him up to start against the Twins, who he has a 1.56 ERA in three starts against this season. "We wanted to stay right-handed against Houston," said manager Terry Francona. "Then when we get to Minnesota, we'll insert T.J. Rather than push guys back that don't need to be pushed back, we'll let him pitch against a team that maybe matches up better against him. It's all because of the double header." Rotoworld.com

  • Jered Weaver strikes out 12 in victory
    Jered Weaver won for the 17th time this season by limiting the Astros to one run in seven innings and striking out 12 on Saturday.

    Advice: Weaver fell three strikeouts short of his career high, but it's just the third time in his career that he's gotten to 12 and the first time since April 6, 2012 that he's even reached double figures. He's previous season high was nine against the White Sox in June. Weaver ended up throwing 101 pitches, 76 of them strikes.

  • Zimmerman to face live pitching on Monday
    Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) is slated to face live pitching in the instructional league in Viera on Monday.

    Advice: Zimmerman was able to run at 60 percent on Friday and continues to make progress toward a return to the Nationals lineup. Even is he returns at some point next week though, he's only expected to see sporadic playing time down the stretch so he isn't a strong option in most mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 13, 6:26 am
  • Zimmerman (hamstring) runs at 60 percent
    Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) did some running at about 60 percent on Friday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's ran since being placed on the disabled list back in late July. Zimmerman did starts and stops while running and also did some hitting on the field. The next step for the third baseman will be to head to the Nationals' spring training complex on Sunday to get in some live batting practice. Zimmerman could conceivably be activated at some point next week, but the Nats plan to be careful with his playing time. Rotoworld.com

    Michael Morse (oblique) is not expected to play this weekend.

    Advice: He's still swinging the bat at only 50 percent. Morse is only 10 days removed from straining his oblique, so his continued absence isn't a surprise even though the Giants had expressed optimism that he could be back by now.

House has gone seven innings in three straight outings after never doing so in his first 13 starts of the year, and he's lowered his ERA from 4.18 to 3.42 during the span.

    Huston Street (hamstring) will likely be unavailable Thursday.

    Advice: Street hasn't pitched since Saturday due to right hamstring tightness and the Angels can afford to play it safe with him with such a big lead in the AL West. It's not a long-term concern. Rotoworld.com

  • Zimmerman to go to instructional league soon
    Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) is tentatively scheduled to go to the instructional league in Viera, Florida next week.

    Advice: Zimmerman, out since late July with a Grade 3 hamstring strain, resumed taking batting practice earlier this week. Running at full speed will be the real test for his hamstring, but assuming no setbacks, he'll get eased into game action in Florida before rejoining the Nationals. He could make it back during the final week of the regular season, but fantasy owners obviously shouldn't be counting on him at this point. Rotoworld.com

  • Street (hamstring) expects to pitch on Friday
    Huston Street (hamstring) was not available Wednesday.

    Advice: Street said before the game that his right hamstring was fully healthy, but the first-place Angels decided to play it safe with their closer and keep him idle. Street expects to pitch Friday, when the Angels return home from Texas to begin a three-game series against the visiting Astros. He has a 1.71 ERA and 13 saves since joining Anaheim. Rotoworld.com
