  • 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

  • Rollins (hamstring) won't play this weekend
    Jimmy Rollins (hamstring) has been ruled out through the weekend.

    Advice: Rollins had been hoping to play in his hometown of Oakland, but he tested out his strained left hamstring on Saturday and evidently still isn't feeling good enough for game action. Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg was non-committal when asked if Rollins would play again this season. "We'll see," Sandberg said. "We'll see how he does and how he goes. I'm not going one way or another on it. Just watching the progress." Rotoworld.com

  • Evan Gattis pinch-hits on Saturday
    Evan Gattis grounded out as a pinch-hitter in his return to action Saturday.

    Advice: It was Gattis' first appearance since September 7, as he's been nursing strep throat and a kidney stone. He's expected to only be available off the bench for the next few days, but the Braves hope he'll be ready to start before the end of the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Gomes owns Twins with four RBI night
    Yan Gomes drove in four runs in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Twins.

    Advice: Gomes was locked in on Twins' starter Trevor May. He hit an RBI single in the third, then smashed a three-run homer a few innings later, sending May to the showers. Gomes now has 70 RBI and 20 home runs on the year for the Indians, who have won four in a row to keep their playoff chances alive. After hitting like a man on fire for July (.329/.367/.624) and August (.349/.369/.540), Gomes had been hitting like a man who just wanted to watch the leaves fall in September (.238/.242/.444). Then, Trevor May entered his life. Despite the slight cool-down this month, he's still slashing .288/.321/.484 in what has been a career year. 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

  • 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
  • Pujols belts 27th homer as Angels top TEX
    Albert Pujols went yard for the 27th time this season the Angels handed the Rangers a loss on Saturday.

    Advice: Pujols finished 3-for-4 on the evening. His fifth-inning shot was part of a five-run fifth inning in which the Angels bolted out to an 8-0 lead. It hasn't always been pretty, but Pujols has managed to put together a full, productive season. Along with the 27 homers, he's knocked in 100 and slashed .275/.329/.470. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:09 pm
  • Dozier puts in three-hit game in loss to CLE
    Brian Dozier went 3-for-4 with a home run on Saturday.

    Advice: The home run was Dozier's 21st in 2014. Unfortunately for the Twins, the eighth inning solo shot came at a point when the team had already been buried by the incompetence of their starter, Trevor May, as they were down 7-1 when Dozier did went to work. The RBI was Dozier's 66th. He also hit his 33rd double of the year. Dozier's slashing .240/.346/.412, with 21 steals, 21 home runs and 106 runs scored. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:09 pm
  • Trout's 35th homer aids Angels in win vs. TEX
    Mike Trout had a productive night at the plate, going 2-for-3 with a walk, a triple, a two-run home run, and three runs scored in Saturday's win against the Rangers.

    Advice: Trout by himself accounted for four of the Angels' eight runs on the evening. He came to bat in the seventh inning needing a double for the cycle but struck out looking. Nevertheless, Trout bumps his slash line up to .290/.379/.568 with 35 home runs, 109 RBI, 14 stolen bases, and 112 runs scored. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:06 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
  • Leake roughed up over five innings vs Cards
    Mike Leake allowed six runs (five earned) over five innings in Saturday's 8-4 loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Leake was mainly done in by two Cardinal home runs. Tony Cruz hit a three-run shot in the second and Kolten Wong smacked a two-run bomb in the third. In addition to the five earned runs and six hits on his line, Leake struck out four and walked two. He was pulled after five innings, having thrown just 70 pitches. Leake's record fell to 11-13 after the defeat. He holds an ERA of 3.78 and a WHIP of 1.26 this season. Leake will trot out against the Pirates for his last regular season start. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:46 pm
  • Josh Reddick returns to Athletics lineup
    Josh Reddick is in the Athletics starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Reddick missed the previous two games due to neck and ankle ailments. He's having a disappointing season after a breakout 2013 campaign, hitting just .246/.304/.422 with 11 homers and 46 RBI in 101 games. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:24 am
  • Holliday hits 19th homer in win over Reds
    Matt Holliday went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a double, and a walk against the Reds on Friday.

    Advice: Randal Grichuk and Holliday went back-to-back against David Holmberg in the first inning, which gave John Lackey and the Cardinals' bullpen all the offense they would need. Holliday is now up to 19 home runs on the year, putting him one short of his sixth-straight 20-homer campaign. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:05 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
  • Jimmy Rollins not in Phillies lineup Friday
    Once again, Jimmy Rollins is not in the Phillies starting lineup on Friday.

    Advice: Rollins still must show that he can run sprints without any issues before rejoining the Phillies lineup. He's still expected to return at some point over the weekend. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Gattis hasn't played since September 7 due to strep throat and a kidney stone, but he'll take batting practice Friday and could be available off the bench. Christian Bethancourt is at catcher again Friday. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 2:05 pm
  • Rollins (hamstring) could return on Friday
    Jimmy Rollins (hamstring) could return to the lineup on Friday.

    Advice: It just so happens that the Phillies are in Oakland, where Rollins grew up. The shortstop hasn't played since September 8 due to a left hamstring strain but tested things out on Thursday. He's hit .243/.323/.394 with 17 homers and 28 stolen bases for Philly this season. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 6:52 am
  • Mark Trumbo nursing back spasms
    Mark Trumbo was held out of the lineup Thursday after exiting Wednesday's contest with back spasms.

    Advice: Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson didn't think it was a major issue, saying that Trumbo "probably needed an off day anyway." It sounds like he should be back in the lineup at some point this weekend. Rotoworld.com

    Thursday, 2:05 pm
  • Jered Weaver scratched from Thursday's start
    Jered Weaver has been scratched from Thursday's start against the Mariners.

    Advice: It's not injury-related, as the Angels wrapped up the division Wednesday night and will give him a day to rest after the celebration. It will also allow them to line him up as they want for the postseason. Wade LeBlanc will start instead Thursday. Rotoworld.com

    Albert Pujols finished 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in Wednesday's 5-0 win against the Mariners.

    Advice: Pujols returned to the lineup yesterday after leaving Monday's game early due to a left hamstring cramp. The veteran went 1-for-3 on Tuesday and cashed in RBI No. 98. He'd plated 15 runners over his last 12 games coming into play today. Pujols retains a solid .272/.326/.465 slash line. Rotoworld.com

    Tuesday, 8:44 pm
  • 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

  • Trout goes 1-for-2 with three walks and a run
    Mike Trout went 1-for-2 with three walks and a run scored in Monday's win over the Mariners.

    Advice: Trout is now 4-for-23 (.174) off the Mariners' Hisashi Iwakuma. That's his worst batting average against any pitcher Trout has ever had 15 or more at-bats against. Fortunately, he's really, really good against everybody else. Trout is slashing .291/.381/.567 and is on pace for 37 homers, 116 RBI, 117 runs and 15 steals. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:10 pm
  • Trumbo blasts a salami, knocks in five runs
    Mark Trumbo hit a grand slam to lead the Diamondbacks past the Giants 6-2 on Monday.

    Advice: He finished 2-for-5 with five RBI, adding an RBI single in the seventh. The big damage came in the third frame, when Trumbo swatted a Ryan Vogelsong offering over the right field wall to plate Wade Miley, Chris Owings and A.J. Pollock. Trumbo has driven in 10 runs over his last five games. A hot finish would give a nice superficial boost to his disappointing slash line (.239/.303/.389). Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:46 pm
  • Pujols leaves game with hamstring cramp
    Albert Pujols left Monday's game against the Mariners with a left hamstring cramp.

    Advice: Pujols cleared the bases with a double in the third inning but grabbed his hamstring on the way into second base. The good news is that the Angels are calling it a cramp, so it sounds like a day-to-day situation. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:15 pm

    Evan Gattis (strep throat) is out of the Braves' lineup again Monday against the Nationals.

    Monday, 1:17 pm
  • 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. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 14, 4:34 pm
  • Holliday stays hot, doubles twice vs. Rockies
    Matt Holliday went 2-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Rockies.

    Advice: Holliday has been on fire in September, and he stayed hot with his two doubles. The first was an RBI double in the third inning. He would come around to score on Jhonny Peralta's subsequent home run. Holliday is hitting .319 with two home runs, eight RBI and six runs scored this month. His final line will end up looking Holliday-esque after a slow start to the year. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 14, 4:14 pm
  • Leake gives up three runs in loss to Brewers
    Mike Leake allowed three runs on eight hits over six innings in Sunday's loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: Leake gave up eight hits and walked three, so he was actually fortunate that only three runs crossed the plate. The loss was his first since August 13, dropping him to 11-12 on the year. He's had another strong year despite the Reds' struggles, owning a 3.65 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 152/46 K/BB ratio over 202 1/3 innings this season. He's got the Cardinals on deck in St. Louis Saturday.

    Sep 14, 3:07 pm
  • 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
    Sep 14, 7:29 am
  • Mike Trout homers twice in Angels' win
    Mike Trout went 3-for-3 with two solo homers and an intentional walk Saturday in the Angels' 5-2 defeat of the Astros.

    Advice: Trout collected his 33rd and 34th homers and his 39th double. Really, if there was any question left, he might have just locked up AL MVP honors tonight. Trout leads the league with 107 runs scored and 107 RBI, he's moved into a tie for third in homers and he's third behind Jose Abreu and Victor Martinez in OPS, while obviously having greater defensive value than those two. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 13, 10:25 pm
  • 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. Even though his home run and walk rates are up this year, he's the AL leader in wins and he has a 3.50 ERA. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 13, 10:23 pm
  • Huston Street earns save in return
    Huston Street pitched a scoreless ninth for a save in his return to the mound Saturday against the Astros.

    Advice: Street was given a three-run lead in his first appearance in a week, and he gave up just a single on his to converting it. The closer had been sidelined with a hamstring injury. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 13, 10:19 pm
  • Trumbo goes 3-for-5, drives in three vs. Pads
    Mark Trumbo finished 3-for-5 with three RBI as the Diamondbacks beat the Padres 10-4 on Saturday.

    Advice: Trumbo smacked a two-run single in the first inning and later scored on a wild pitch. He then plated Chris Owings on a fielder's choice in the second and doubled in the fifth before singling and scoring again in the eighth. Trumbo seems to be finding a groove now after struggling initially in his return from a fractured foot. Rotoworld.com

  • Gattis (strep throat) to miss Sunday as well
    Evan Gattis (strep throat) will remain out of the Braves' lineup on Sunday versus the Rangers.

    Advice: Gattis has been sidelined with strep since Monday. This is obviously bad news for the Braves as they battle for a spot in the playoffs. He is batting .270/.325/.507 with 22 homers and 52 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 13, 1:10 pm
  • Evan Gattis remains out of Braves lineup
    Evan Gattis (strep throat) remains out of the Braves starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Gattis reported feeling better on Saturday morning, but the Braves are rolling with Christian Bethancourt behind the dish and Tommy La Stella at designated hitter instead. Look for the White Bear to return to the middle of the Braves lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Rangers. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 13, 8:16 am
  • Mike Trout doubles, triples in win
    Mike Trout doubled, tripled and drove in two runs as the Angels topped the Astros 11-3 on Friday.

    Advice: Trout also scored twice, giving him 104 runs and 105 RBI through 143 games. He leads the AL in both categories. The win was the Angels' ninth straight, giving them an 11-game lead in the AL West. Their magic number is just seven with 16 games to go. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 12, 11:29 pm
  • Holliday smacks three-run homer in win
    Matt Holliday went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer, two runs scored, and a stolen base in Friday's 5-1 win over the Rockies.

    Advice: The win snapped a three-game losing streak for St. Louis. Holliday's first-inning blast was the big blow of the ballgame and traveled an estimated 439 feet. The veteran outfielder has turned things on since the All-Star break by collecting 11 home runs and 39 RBI over 50 games. He had six home runs and 45 RBI in 93 games during the first half. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 12, 10:03 pm
  • Gattis (strep throat) remains out of lineup
    Evan Gattis (strep throat) remained out of the Braves' lineup Friday.

    Advice: The Braves had anticipated him being ready for designated hitter duty in Texas, but Gattis still isn't feeling up to it. He'll visit the doctor Friday to see if there's anything else he can try to do to get him ready to play at some point this weekend. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 12, 2:47 pm
  • Joey Votto (quad) to travel on road trip
    Joey Votto (quad) traveled with the Reds to Milwaukee for their three-city road trip that begins on Friday.

    Advice: It doesn't necessarily mean that he'll be activated at some point during the trip, but there's a chance. Votto has taken ground balls and hit off a tee as he slowly but surely ramps up his activity level. The first baseman has been on the shelf since early July with a distal left quad strain.

    Albert Pujols struck out four times in five trips to the plate in Thursday's win against the Rangers.

    Advice: It took 2,102 games and 9,187 plate appearances, but Pujols finally dons the golden sombrero. He had previously struck out three times in a game 13 times in his 14-year career. Despite Thursday's showing, Pujols has had a productive year at the plate, slashing .276/.329/.473 with 26 home runs and 92 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Jimmy Rollins (hamstring) does exercises
    Jimmy Rollins (hamstring) has progressed to doing some indoor exercises.

    Advice: "Jimmy's progressing with some activities inside," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "Some exercise work and some things. He seems to be doing better." Although there's no timetable for Rollins' return, Sandberg suggested that if it wasn't September, Rollins wouldn't be a candidate for the DL. That indicates that he shouldn't be out too much longer.

  • T.J. House goes seven scoreless in win
    T.J. House allowed four hits over seven innings as the Indians beat the Twins 2-0 in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader.

    Advice: The Indians swept the doubleheader, outscoring the Twins 10-2 on the day. 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. Mixed leaguers might want to give him a try when he faces the Astros next week. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 11, 3:11 pm
  • Street (hamstring) likely unavailable Thu.
    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
    Sep 11, 2:13 pm
  • Yan Gomes homers, doubles in win over MIN
    Yan Gomes homered, doubled and knocked in three runs Thursday against the Twins.

    Advice: The homer was his first in 12 games since he returned from a concussion. Gomes has 18 homers and 62 RBI for the year, making him one of the game's best offensive catchers. He's no slouch behind the dish, either. Rotoworld.com

    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
