  • Todd Frazier belts 27th home run in victory
    Todd Frazier belted his 27th home run of the season on Sunday, helping to power the Reds past the Cardinals.

    Advice: The 28-year-old is having an outstanding season at the plate, slashing .274/.335/.453 with 27 homers, 76 RBI and 20 stolen bases. While a full repeat shouldn't be counted on for next season, Frazier has likely worked his way into the first few rounds of fantasy drafts.

  • Descalso collects two hits in loss to Reds
    Daniel Descalso collected a pair of hits in Sunday's loss to the Reds, going 2-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored.

    Advice: It was the second straight start for Descalso at third base, filling in for Matt Carpenter who has been under the weather with a stomach illness. The veteran utilityman is hitting .244/.333/.314 with 10 RBI in 156 at-bats on the season.

  • Dominguez hits first major league home run
    Chris Dominguez hit his first major league home run in Sunday's loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Dominguez hit 21 home runs with Triple-A Fresno this season, and it took him five at-bats to get his first at the major league level. Despite some pop, the 27-year-old is a non-prospect and won't fill much more than an organizational depth role for the Giants.

    Josh Donaldson came up big for the A's Sunday, hitting a two-run, walk-off homer in the 10th inning to defeat the Phillies 8-6.

He proceeded to take Phillies reliever Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez deep to send everyone home happy. Donaldson now has 28 home runs, 97 RBI and 89 runs scored this year. Three more RBI over the final week will represent Donaldson's first ever 100-RBI season.

  • Harrison extends hitting streak to nine games
    Josh Harrison extended his hitting streak to nine games Sunday, going 2-for-4 in a win over the Brewers.

    Advice: The multi-hit game was Harrison's fifth during the nine-game streak. His average is an NL-best .318, and he's closing in on his first batting title. It's certainly been a memorable season for the do-everything 27-year-old.
    Yesterday, 1:17 pm
  • Casey McGehee hitless in Sunay's loss
    Casey McGehee went 0-for-4 with one strikeout in Sunday's loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: He wasn't alone, as the Marlins managed just four hits and one run off of Stephen Strasburg and the Nats' bullpen. McGehee has just one hit over his last 12 at-bats and is now batting just .244/.319/.316 since the All-Star break after a nice first half.

  • Pedro Alvarez (foot) could return for NLDS
    Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Sunday that there's a chance Pedro Alvarez (foot) could return if the team advances to the NLDS.

    Advice: He will not be ready for the Wild Card game. Alvarez has been nursing a stress reaction in the fourth metatarsal in his left foot since late August and it's an injury that normally requires 4-6 weeks to recover from.

  • Profar shut down with more shoulder soreness
    Jurickson Profar will meet with Dr. Keith Meister in Texas after experiencing more soreness in his right shoulder.

    Advice: Profar has missed the entire season with a torn muscle in the shoulder and has had a couple setbacks along the way. He will now not play in the Arizona Fall League as planned and his status going forward looks very cloudy. It's yet another dose of bad news in what has been an awful season for the Rangers.

  • 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.
    Saturday, 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.

  • Ynoa has four hits in rout of Diamondbacks
    Rafael Ynoa had a memorable night at the plate in Friday's thrashing of the Diamondbacks, going 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles and a triple.

    Advice: Ynoa also drove home three runs. He delivered a run-scoring double off opposing starter Chase Anderson in the fourth inning, then tacked on a two-run triple the following frame. While he profiles best as a utility infielder at the big league level, he's now hitting an impressive .417/.417/.528 in his limited action with the Rockies.
    Friday, 9:14 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.

    Xander Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with a home run and four RBI to lead the Red Sox to an 8-4 win over the Royals on Sunday.

    Advice: Bogaerts hit a three-run homer in the third inning before adding a sacrifice fly in the seventh.

  • Frazier hits 26th home run in loss to Brewers
    Todd Frazier hit his 26th home run in Sunday's loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: Frazier was one of the few Reds batters able to do much of anything against Brewers starter Matt Garza, hitting the solo shot in the sixth inning. It's been a strong year for the 28-year-old, who has a career high 26 home runs, 75 RBI, 79 runs scored and 20 stolen bases.

    Sep 14, 1:41 pm
  • 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.
    Sep 13, 6:26 am
  • Harrison has three hits, two runs scored Fri.
    Josh Harrison was 3-for-5 with a walk and two runs scored Friday against the Cubs.

    Advice: He raised his batting average back up to .318, just above Colorado's Justin Morneau and teammate Andrew McCutchen in the National League batting race. Harrison has found a home as the Pirates' leadoff hitter, scoring 35 runs in 49 games since the All-Star break.
    Sep 12, 9:04 pm
  • 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.
