  • Jonathan Villar homers twice against Rangers
    Jonathan Villar homered twice, doubled and knocked in five runs to lead the Brewers past the Rangers 8-3 on Monday.

    Advice: That's not so good for the old stolen base numbers there, Jonathan. Still, he's up to 18 homers this year after hitting 10 over 589 at-bats in parts of three seasons with the Astros. There was no doubt he'd steal a whole bunch of bases if the playing time was to be had, but the power outburst didn't seem so likely. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • Jean Segura slugs two homers in D'Backs rout
    Jean Segura clubbed a pair of home runs and drove in three in Monday's blowout win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Segura got the scoring starting for the D'Backs with a solo shot in the fourth and then added a two-run shot in the eighth. He also had a single on the night. A lot of things have gone wrong for Arizona this season, but Segura certainly hasn't been one of them. He's up to a career-high 19 home runs and is just four hits shy of a 200-hit campaign.

  • Asdrubal Cabrera drives in a couple runs
    Asdrubal Cabrera reached base four times and drove in two runs in Monday's loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: Cabrera plated a couple runs in the fifth inning after the Marlins had jumped out to a 7-0 lead. He also had a single and a couple walks on the night, continuing his red-hot hitting in spite of the fact that he's been battling some nagging injuries. He's batting .367 since returning from the disabled list last month. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:18 pm
  • Baez's six RBI propel Cubs to 100th victory
    Javier Baez hit a grand slam and drove in a career-high six runs in Monday's victory over the Pirates.

    Advice: Baez took Chad Kuhl deep in the fourth inning for his second grand slam of the season. He wasn't done there, adding a two-RBI single in the sixth to extend the Cubs' lead to 11-0 at the time. Kris Bryant also went deep for the Cubbies, who claimed their 100th victory of the season. It's the first time since 1935 that the Cubs have reached 100 wins. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:58 pm

  • Bregman (hamstring) not ruled out from return
    Astros manager A.J. Hinch hasn't ruled out Alex Bregman (hamstring) from returning this week.

    Advice: It was previously thought that Bregman was unlikely to return unless the Astros made a deep run into the playoffs, but he was able to make it through a full workout on Monday. If anything, he could get some peace of mind going into the winter. The outstanding rookie has been out since September 14 with a hamstring strain. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:16 pm

    Advice: Bregman, out since September 14 with a right hamstring strain, did some running on the field in addition to taking grounders and hitting. He said things went well, but odds are we've seen the last of him this season, even if the Astros were to make a remarkable run this week and snag one of the Wild Card spots.

  • Reds place Zack Cozart (knee) on 15-day DL
    Reds placed SS Zack Cozart on the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Cozart hadn't appeared in a game since September 10 due to a nagging right knee injury and he won't play in another game this season. This was really just a procedural move. The 31-year-old shortstop finishes with a .252/.308/.425 batting line, 16 homers, 50 RBI, four steals, and 67 runs scored. He'll be arbitration-eligible for the final time this winter after making $2.925 million in 2016. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:53 am

  • Peralta drives home lone run in loss to Cubs
    Jhonny Peralta went 1-for-4 and plated the Cardinals' lone run in Sunday night's loss to the Cubs.

    Advice: His run-scoring single in the eighth inning got the Cardinals on the board, cutting their deficit in half at 2-1. That would be the extent of their offense though. It has been a disappointing and injury-plagued season for the veteran infielder who is now hitting .251/.298/.395 with seven homers and 25 RBI in his 75 games. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:24 pm

    Advice: Rosales tagged Giants starter Ty Blach for a solo shot in the third inning, pulling the Padres to within a run at 3-2.

  • Corey Seager smahes game-tying home run
    Corey Seager smashed a game-tying home run in the ninth inning on Sunday, which ultimately led to the Dodgers defeating the Rockies 4-3.

    Advice: Seager tied the game at 2-2 with a run-scoring triple in the seventh inning. He then tagged Rockies closer Adam Ottavino for the game-tying blast with two outs in the ninth inning to force extras, where Charlie Culberson socked a walk-off homer in the 10th. Seager finished the day 3-for-5 and is now hitting a robust .313/.371/.523 with 26 homers and 72 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:23 pm
  • Asdrubal Cabrera hits grand slam in 17-0 rout
    Asdrubal Cabrera finished 2-for-5 with four RBI in the Mets' 17-0 rout of the Phillies on Sunday.

    Advice: That's not a football score. Jose Reyes also drove in four runs for the Mets in the afternoon outburst at Citi Field, and Curtis Granderson slugged his 30th home run of the season. Cabrera singled in the sixth inning and popped a grand slam off Frank Herrmann in the seventh. The veteran shortstop has been a steadying force for the Mets all season, now with a .281/.336/.482 batting line and 23 homers in 135 games. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:59 pm
  • Aledmys Diaz not in Cardinals lineup Sunday
    Aledmys Diaz is not in the Cardinals starting lineup for Sunday night's game against the Cubs.

  • Didi Gregorius goes deep in loss to Blue Jays
    Didi Gregorius slugged a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Gregorius' dinger off of Marco Estrada to lead off the seventh inning knotted the game up at the time. The Yankees wound up taking the lead in the top of the ninth but then gave in back in the bottom of the frame. Gregorius' 19 longballs exceed his previous career high by 10. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:32 pm
  • Brandon Crawford (finger) returns to lineup
    Brandon Crawford (finger) is back in the Giants' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Crawford missed four games with a dislocated left pinkie, but he's ready to give it a go in this one. Crawford is at shortstop and batting seventh against Clayton Richard and the Padres. Brandon Belt and Angel Pagan are sitting out against the lefty, as the Giants have Buster Posey at first base and Gorkys Hernandez in center field. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:35 am
  • Jordy Mercer (forearm) returns to lineup
    Jordy Mercer (forearm) is back in the Pirates' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's his first start since Wednesday as Mercer has battled a flexor issue in his right arm. He's at shortstop and batting sixth against A.J. Cole and the Nationals. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:10 am
  • Francisco Lindor getting a day off Sunday

  • Jose Iglesias scratched from Tigers' lineup
    Jose Iglesias was a late scratch from the Tigers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Chris McCosky of the Detroit News says that Iglesias "was tore up pretty good" by the death of fellow Cuban Jose Fernandez and it appears that's the reason for him being scratched. Andrew Romine has replaced Iglesias at shortstop. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:40 am
  • Jose Iglesias (hand) back in action Saturday
    Jose Iglesias (hand) singled and scored a run in five trips to the plate Saturday against the Royals.

    Advice: Iglesias had to be lifted from Friday's game after an errant throw from third base hit his right hand as he crossed first base. However, he didn't wind up needing any additional down time as it turned out. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:23 am
  • Drew picks up two-run single against Pirates
    Stephen Drew went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Saturday's win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Drew had a big two-run single in the first inning to widen the Nats' early lead, and they never looked back. In his last four games, Drew is 6-for-15 with two doubles, two RBI and two runs scored, and with Daniel Murphy still sidelined it's likely the 33-year-old continues to get regular playing time as the season winds down. Drew is hitting .281/.345/.539 in 64 games this year. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:56 pm

  • Andrus explodes for two homers on Saturday
    Elvis Andrus clobbered a pair of home runs Saturday in the Rangers' win over the Athletics.

    Advice: He tied a career-high with four RBI. Andrus was the only offense the Rangers needed in a 5-0 win. Both of his blasts came off A's rookie Raul Alcantara. The 28-year-old is having his best offensive season. His .299 average, eight homers and 68 RBI all represent new career-highs. Saturday was the first multi-homer game of Andrus' career. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:08 pm
  • Flores (wrist) could be done for the year
    ESPN New York's Adam Rubin reports Wilmer Flores (wrist) may be done for the season.

    Advice: He isn't close to swinging a bat and has already received two cortisone shots since going down with a bruised wrist two weeks ago. Flores could return if the Mets make a deep postseason run but it's a near certainty he won't be back for the final week of the regular season. Assuming that's the case, Flores will close out the 2016 campaign with 16 HR, 49 RBI and a .267 average across 307 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:46 pm

  • Asdrubal Cabrera back in Mets lineup Saturday
    Asdrubal Cabrera (quadriceps) returned to the Mets starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Cabrera was forced to make an early exit on Friday due to soreness in his right quad, it isn't enough to keep him out of Saturday's lineup though. He'll bat second against Alec Asher and the Phillies on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:43 pm
  • Carlos Correa back in lineup on Saturday
    Carlos Correa (shoulder) returned to the Astros starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Correa exited Friday's game after re-injuring his shoulder, but it's going to take a lot to keep him out of the Astros lineup at this point of the season. He's hitting in his customary cleanup spot against Jhoulys Chacin and the Angels on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:41 pm
  • Jordy Mercer fouls out as pinch hitter
    Jordy Mercer (forearm) fouled out as a pinch hitter during Friday's come-from-behind victory over the Nationals.

    Advice: Mercer was scratched from Friday's lineup due to discomfort in his right forearm and was held out on Friday as well. The fact that he was able to appear as a pinch hitter bodes well for his status going forward and he should return to the starting lineup at some point over the weekend. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:44 am
  • Carlos Correa departs with shoulder injury
    Carlos Correa was removed from Friday's game against the Angels after re-injuring his shoulder on a diving attempt defensively.

    Advice: Correa ranged back and attempted to make a diving grab in the outfield on a bloop double off the bat of Rafael Ortega in the ninth inning. Correa has been battling a shoulder injury for the past several weeks and appeared to aggravate it during the play. The Astros are expected to update his status on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:37 am
  • Carlos Asuaje doubles twice
    Collecting his first major league hits, Carlos Asuaje doubled twice and scored twice Friday against the Giants.

    Advice: Asuaje was making his second start at second base since joining the Padres four days ago. The late callup will give him little chance to throw his hat in the ring for a place on next year's team, but he's a fringy prospect anyway. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:57 pm
  • Asdrubal Cabrera leaves with sore quadriceps
    Asdrubal Cabrera was forced to leave Friday's game against the Phillies with a sore right quadriceps.

    Advice: Cabrera is sore from fouling a ball off of his leg, but he was able to avoid any significant injury which is a big sigh of relief for the Mets. He could sit out on Saturday as a precautionary measure, but isn't expected to be sidelined for long. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:09 pm
  • Iglesias day-to-day with hand contusion
    Jose Iglesias has been diagnosed with a right hand contusion and is listed as day-to-day.

    Advice: The defensive wizard was hit in the hand by an errant throw while running the bases in Friday's victory over the Royals. It wouldn't be surprising to see Andrew Romine start in his place on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:51 pm
  • Jose Iglesias leaves game with hand injury
    Jose Iglesias was forced to leave Friday's game against the Royals after being hit on the hand by an errant throw.

    Advice: Iglesias got drilled on the right hand by a wild throw from Cheslor Cuthbert as he crossed first base. He remained in the game to run for himself, but was replaced by Andrew Romine defensively the next half inning. Expect the Tigers to provide an update on his status after the conclusion of Friday's game. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:42 pm
  • Brandon Crawford could return on Sunday
    Brandon Crawford (finger) could return to the Giants lineup on Sunday.

    Advice: He's expected to try taking some dry swings on Friday to see how his dislocated finger responds.

Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:49 pm
  • Brandon Crawford (finger) remains out Friday
    Brandon Crawford (finger) remains out of the Giants starting lineup on Friday.

    Advice: Crawford suffered a dislocated finger during Tuesday's game and hasn't been able to return since. Ehire Adrianza will once again start at shortstop and bat eighth for the Giants against Edwin Jackson and the Padres. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:42 pm
  • Starlin Castro (hamstring) could run Saturday
    Starlin Castro (hamstring) will hit in an indoor batting cage Friday and hopes to do some running Saturday.

    Advice: However, he won't return this weekend in Toronto as previously hoped, as the Yankees don't want to play Castro on artificial turf. It does sound like the second baseman could be back in the lineup early next week if he continues to progress. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:49 pm

    Aledmys Diaz said Friday that his right arm is feeling fine.

    Advice: "I'm good," Diaz said. The shortstop is out of the Cardinals' lineup Friday for the second time in three games since manager Mike Matheny said Diaz was dealing with some arm strength issues. He's started only seven of 12 contests since returning from the disabled list. It doesn't make sense that Diaz would be sitting if he's healthy, so it seems likely that something is going on here.

    Advice: He's now been on the bench for two of the last three games and has started just seven of 12 contests since being activated from the disabled list. Manager Mike Matheny said Tuesday that Diaz has been having issues with arm strength, although it's unclear if that's why he's not playing Friday. Jedd Gyorko is at shortstop.

  • Bregman (hamstring) ran on treadmill Thursday
    Alex Bregman (hamstring) did some running on a treadmill Thursday.

    Advice: It was at a very low intensity, but it was the first time he's done any running since suffering a right hamstring strain on September 14. Bregman said Thursday that he's "hoping to come back sooner rather than later and trying to do anything I can to help contribute," but the reality is that the Astros would probably have to make a deep playoff run for him to have a chance to return.

He's done treadmill work and agility drills at the club's spring training complex in Florida and hopes to begin hitting again. "I don’t know if it’s a realistic hope, but I think it’s my hope," Girardi said of the possibility of Castro rejoining the team in Toronto. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:51 am

  • Cabrera plays walk-off hero in 11-inning win
    Asdrubal Cabrera was the hero in Thursday's marathon, 11-inning win over the Phillies, hitting a three-run, walk-off homer in the 9-8 victory.

    Advice: Cabrera had three hits in the game, none bigger than the blast to right field in the 11th with two runners on to save the day -- and perhaps the Mets' season. He knew it, too, delivering an all-time bat flip toward an ecstatic Mets dugout before rounding the bases and being mobbed at home plate. It's been a magical season for the 30-year-old, who has 22 home runs in his first year with the Metropolitans. Cabrera is batting .281/.335/.480 through 132 games overall. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:57 pm
  • Crawford (finger) remains out of lineup
    Brandon Crawford (finger) remains out of the Giants starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Padres.

    Advice: Crawford suffered a dislocated pinkie finger while sliding into third base during Tuesday's game. He's still considered day-to-day. Ehire Adrianza is getting another start in his place at shortstop and will bat seventh against Christian Friedrich and the Padres. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:46 pm
  • Jordy Mercer (forearm) scratched from lineup
    Jordy Mercer was scratched from Thursday's lineup with right forearm discomfort.

    Advice: It's unclear at this point whether it's something that could keep him out for more than just the one game. Sean Rodriguez will slide over from second base to shortstop for Mercer, while Adam Frazier has entered the lineup at second. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:30 pm
  • Brock Holt (death in family) back Thursday
    Brock Holt (personal) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup Thursday night against the Orioles.

  • Cabrera swats two-run bomb vs Braves
    Asdrubal Cabrera went 1-for-5 and swatted a two-run bomb versus the Braves on Wednesday.

    Advice: After Jose Reyes walked and stole second base in the first inning, Cabrera jolted one over the right field fence for his 21st homer of the season. He has a .278 batting average to go with 52 RBI and 61 runs scored. He had a pedestrian first half of the season but has really turned it on since the All Star break. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:33 pm
  • Miller drills two solo home runs as Rays lose
    Brad Miller smoked a pair of solo home runs on Wednesday to lift his total to 30 longballs on the season.

    Advice: His previous career high was 11. His first homer came in the middle of back-to-back-to-back jacks off Masahiro Tanaka in the third inning. He went deep again with the bases empty in the eighth inning. Miller has a .249 batting average with 77 RBI and the 30 homers. He has had an unexpectedly productive season for a guy who could be obtained for nothing early in the season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:35 pm

    Zack Cozart (knee) is unlikely to play again this season.

    Advice: Cozart has not been officially shut down, but Reds manager Bryan Price more or less shut the door Wednesday on a potential return. The 31-year-old shortstop has been sidelined by right knee soreness since September 10. Prior to the injury, he was hitting .252/.308/.425 with 16 homers and 50 RBI over 464 at-bats.

    Mets manager Terry Collins has ruled out Wilmer Flores (wrist) for Thursday's game against the Phillies.

    Advice: Collins deemed the worry-level surrounding Flores' wrist as a "DEFCON 4," so that is somewhat disconcerting. The team had hoped that the 25-year-old infielder would be able to return to the lineup against Phillies southpaw Adam Morgan on Thursday. Flores is currently sidelined by a left wrist injury suffered in a collision at home plate on September 10. He has been given two cortisone shots in the intervening days, but Collins said Flores has not been able to swing a bat since the collision. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:26 pm

  • Padres promote Carlos Asuaje from AAA
    Padres purchased the contract of INF Carlos Asuaje from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Asuaje will get a small taste of the majors after coming just short of a Triple-A championship with the Padres' affiliate in the Pacific Coast League. The 24-year-old second baseman hit .321/.378/.473 with nine home runs, 69 RBI, 10 stolen bases, and 98 runs scored in 134 games this season at the Triple-A level. San Diego may give him a start or two, but this is more of a 2017-and-beyond fantasy commodity. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:58 am
  • Aledmys Diaz (arm) back in STL lineup Wed.
    Aledmys Diaz is back in the Cardinals' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon at Coors Field.

    Advice: Diaz is still trying to rebuild some strength in his throwing arm after missing six weeks with a fractured right thumb, so Jedd Gyorko took a turn at shortstop on Tuesday. Diaz, back at shortstop Wednesday, has an impressive .884 OPS in 103 games this season as a rookie. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:08 am

    Tyler Saladino (calf) went 1-for-4 in his return to the White Sox starting lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Saladino missed a handful of games after tweaking his calf Friday night in Kansas City. The 27-year-old infielder is slashing .286/.319/.415 with eight home runs and 11 stolen bases in 92 games this season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:53 am

  • Adam Rosales homers, drives in four vs. ARI
    Adam Rosales went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run and four RBI in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Funky little batting line for Rosales due to the fact that two of his four RBI came via sacrifice flies. His two-run home run in the sixth inning was his 11th of the season. The veteran infielder has homered in two of his last three games and is slashing .233/.323/.485 with 11 homers and 32 RBI over 202 at-bats for the season as a whole. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:42 pm

  • Giants list Crawford (finger) as day-to-day
    Brandon Crawford is considered day-to-day following negative X-rays on his dislocated left pinkie finger.

    Advice: Crawford suffered the injury to his glove hand on a slide into third base Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium and Giants manager Bruce Bochy said after the game that he expects to see some Ehire Adrianza at shortstop over the next couple of days. Joe Panik missed exactly three games last year with a similar injury. It looks like the Giants may have dodged a bullet with this one, though any kind of absence is a big deal with only 11 games remaining on the regular-season schedule. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:25 pm
  • Seager collects three hits in loss to Giants
    Corey Seager went 3-for-4 with a double in Tuesday's loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Seager picked up double No. 40 for the season in the loss. That was the Dodgers' only extra-base hit on the evening. For the 2016 campaign as a whole, the 22-year-old shortstop is hitting .316/.374/.526 with 25 homers and 69 RBI over 586 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:19 pm
  • Eduardo Nunez styles solo home run in victory
    Eduardo Nunez went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Dodgers.

    Advice: In what was a tightly pitched contest throughout, Nunez's solo home run off Rich Hill in the fifth inning snapped a scoreless tie. Since coming over to the Giants via a July trade, the 29-year-old infielder owns a .273/.335/.442 triple-slash with four homers and 19 RBI over 163 at-bats. He has picked up at least one hit in nine of his last 10 games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:13 pm

  • Asdrubal Cabrera goes 3-for-3 in loss
    Asdrubal Cabrera went 3-for-3 with an RBI double and a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Braves.

    Advice: He also added a stolen base. The Mets managed just eight hits on the night, as Cabrera was the only one with more than one. He's been on quite a roll since returning from the disabled list late last month, batting .365 with seven homers and 17 RBI over 30 games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:24 pm
  • Brandon Crawford has a dislocated left pinkie
    Brandon Crawford has been diagnosed with a dislocated left pinkie finger.

    Advice: Crawford suffered the injury on a second-inning slide into third base Tuesday night against the Dodgers. It's on his glove hand, so that helps, but both hands are bat hands and Crawford figures to miss at least a handful of games. He's one of the best all-around players on the Wild Card-hunting Giants, who have fallen fast into a three-way battle with the Mets and Cardinals. Ehire Adrianza took over at shortstop on Tuesday versus Los Angeles. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:16 pm
  • Brandon Crawford pulled with apparent injury
    Brandon Crawford was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Dodgers with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Crawford looked to jam his hand or wrist on a hard slide into third base in the top of the second inning. He was thrown out from left field by Andrew Toles on a play that ended that second frame. There should be an update on Crawford within the next hour or so. This could be a crusher for San Francisco. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:33 pm
  • Brad Miller knocks two-run triple Tuesday
    Brad Miller singled and ripped a two-run triple in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: He nearly had a three-run, opposite-field homer in the third inning but settled for a two-run triple off the wall. Miller has really been struggling over the last month but will look to finish strong here over the next week and a half. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:29 pm

  • Cards' Diaz having issues with arm strength
    Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Tuesday that Aledmys Diaz is having issues with arm strength.

    Advice: Diaz just missed six weeks with a hairline fracture in his right thumb and hasn't had much time to get back into the groove of things like infield throws. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said trainers noticed Diaz altering his throwing motion from the shortstop position in Monday's series opener at Coors Field. Jedd Gyorko will start at short on Tuesday, though Diaz is expected to return Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:41 pm

  • Aledmys Diaz out of Cardinals lineup Tues.
    Aledmys Diaz is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday night in Colorado.

    Advice: Jedd Gyorko will start at shortstop and bat second versus Rockies left-hander Jorge De La Rosa. Diaz went 0-for-5 with a strikeout in Monday's series opener at Coors Field but still boasts an .884 OPS over his first 103 major league games. Maybe the thumb is still an issue?

  • Flores given second cortisone shot for wrist
    Wilmer Flores was given a second cortisone injection for his injured left wrist.

    Advice: Flores hasn't appeared in a game for the Mets since suffering a bone bruise in an awkward home-plate collision with A.J. Pierzynski on September 10 in Atlanta, and it's going to be at least another couple days before he can return. T.J. Rivera is at second base and James Loney is at first base on Tuesday night against the Braves. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:13 pm

  • Andrus homers, scores winner in walk-off
    Elvis Andrus went 3-for-4 with a solo homer and scored the winning run in a walk-off victory Monday versus the Angels.

    Advice: He took Cory Rasmus deep with two outs in the seventh inning to tie things up and then scampered home on a bloop single by Ian Desmond in the bottom of the ninth. Andrus' six home runs are one shy of his career high, and he's at career-bests across the board with his .298/.358/.426 triple-slash numbers. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:07 pm
  • Bregman (hamstring) likely done for season
    Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said Monday that Alex Bregman's hamstring injury usually requires 4-6 weeks of recovery time.

    Advice: Bregman just suffered the injury last Wednesday, so it's safe to say that we won't see him again during the regular season. Luhnow indicated that his timetable could potentially be pushed up, so there's a chance he could be in the mix if the Astros sneak into a Wild Card spot and make a push in the playoffs. But obviously that's asking a lot on all fronts. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:11 pm

  • Bregman (hamstring) remains sidelined
    Alex Bregman (hamstring) remains sidelined.

    Advice: Bregman strained his right hamstring last Wednesday and didn't travel with the Astros during their six-game roadtrip. Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Friday that it's the sort of injury that would normally require a stint on the 15-day disabled list, but there's no need to put him on there in September. Either way, he appears unlikely to play again this season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:39 pm

  • Starlin Castro (hammy) likely done for season
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he would consider it a "bonus" if Starlin Castro (hamstring) appears in another game this season.

    Advice: Castro suffered a Grade 1 right hamstring strain Saturday while trying to leg out a double. That's typically a two-week injury, and there are only two weeks left in the 2016 regular season. "It's hard to say. It really just depends on how quickly he heals," Girardi said. "Hopefully it's not too long. Hopefully it's not more than a week, but still I think that's probably pushing it." Rotoworld.com Sep 19, 6:33 am

  • Aledmys Diaz slugs 16th home run of year
    Aledmys Diaz slugged his 16th home run of the season Sunday in the Cardinals' defeat of the Giants.

    Advice: It was a two-run shot to left off Giants starter Albert Suarez in the top of the third inning. Diaz also tallied his 26th double of the season against Suarez in the first inning, finishing 2-for-4 and improving his already-impressive OPS from .883 to .895. The rookie shortstop from Cuba has been a terrific find for St. Louis. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 4:25 pm

  • Nunez goes 2-for-4 with a run and a steal
    Eduardo Nunez went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in a loss to the Cardinals on Saturday.

    Advice: He scored a go-ahead run on a sacrifice fly by pitcher Jeff Samardzija in the fifth inning but that lead would get blown in the ninth. He recently missed a few games with a sore oblique. He is batting .286/.326/.435 with 15 homers, 65 RBI and 36 stolen bases split between the Twins and Giants. Rotoworld.com Sep 17, 9:19 pm

    Jean Segura went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Dodgers on Saturday.

    Advice: He led off the bottom of the first inning with his 17th home run of the season. After being one of the worst hitters in baseball the last two seasons in Milwaukee he has really turned things around in his first year as a Diamondback. He is batting .316 with 56 RBI, 90 runs scored and 30 stolen bases. Rotoworld.com Sep 17, 8:53 pm

    Advice: He injured himself while running the bases on a fifth-inning double. Castro will undergo more tests and could be headed for an MRI.
