    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday that Hanley Ramirez (elbow) is feeling better.

    Advice: Ramirez is missing his second straight start Wednesday with a strained right elbow, but the hope is that he'll be ready for the four-game series in Chicago that begins Thursday. The shortstop was able to pinch-hit in Tuesday's contest. Rotoworld.com

  • Hanley (elbow) out again on Wednesday
    Hanley Ramirez (elbow) remained out of the Dodgers' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Ramirez was able to pinch-hit Tuesday but will miss a second straight start, suggesting that his elbow is more of an issue in the field. The Dodgers are considering the shortstop day-to-day. Miguel Rojas is filling in Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Amarista finishes a triple short of the cycle
    Alexi Amarista finished 3-for-4 with a double, homer, two RBI and one run scored on Tuesday against the Phillies.

    Advice: He came into this game batting .204 with no extra-base hits in September. So naturally Amarista finishes a triple short of the cycle in Petco, doing most of his damage against Phillies' starter A.J. Burnett. It'll be awhile before you see another performance like this out of Amarista. Even after the monster game, he's batting .242/.292/.313 on the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Escobar has stolen base, two runs against Sox
    Alcides Escobar went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and two runs scored in a loss to the White Sox Tuesday.

    Advice: Escobar, batting leadoff, got on base and scored in the third and sixth innings. The stolen base was his 31st of the year, the second time in his career he's eclipsed the 30-steal benchmark. His single-season high is 35, set in 2012. It's been a strong year for the 27-year-old, who is hitting .275/.308/.363 with 69 runs scored as the Royals' everyday shortstop. Rotoworld.com

  • Hanley (elbow) not expected to play Wednesday
    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly indicated after Tuesday's game that Hanley Ramirez (elbow) was unlikely to play Wednesday.

    Advice: It's no surprise given that it's a day game after a night game. Ramirez was able to pinch-hit Tuesday (striking out), suggesting that his elbow is not at issue at the plate but in the field. Rotoworld.com

  • Franklin logs two hits in his Rays debut
    Nick Franklin, making his Rays debut, went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI single in Tuesday's win against the Yankees.

    Advice: The Rays acquired Franklin from the Mariners at the trade deadline in the three-way trade that sent David Price to Detroit. He debuted in style, doubling and scoring in the sixth to break a 1-1, then singling in a run in the seventh as part of a four-run frame. Franklin posted a meager .363 OPS in 52 plate appearances with the Mariners this season, but the Rays are banking on bigger and better things in 2015. Rotoworld.com

  • Flores homers twice, knocks in 6 as Mets win
    Wilmer Flores had a career night, going 3-for-4 with a double, a pair of home runs, and six runs batted in as the Mets trounced the Marlins on Tuesday.

    Advice: Flores tied the game at 1-1 with a fourth-inning double, then kept adding on with a three-run home run in the fifth and a two-run blast in the seventh, both off of Brad Penny. Flores entered the night with four home runs in 229 plate appearances, so it was certainly an uncharacteristically powerful performance. Along with six homers, Flores has knocked in 28 runs and posted a .245/.280/.386 slash line. Rotoworld.com

  • Desmond powers Nats to clincher over Braves
    Ian Desmond's sixth-inning two-run home run was all of the offense the Nationals needed to clinch the NL East division in a win against the Braves on Tuesday.

    Advice: Desmond finished 2-for-4 with a double as well, but it was his two-run shot in the sixth inning off of Aaron Harang that broke a scoreless tie and helped send the Nationals to their second division title in three seasons. Desmond had been in a bit of an offensive funk, as he hadn't homered since August 29, but he's still sitting on 23 with 88 RBI, 22 stolen bases, and a .252/.308/.423 slash line. Rotoworld.com

  • Eduardo Escobar leaves with shoulder injury
    Eduardo Escobar left Tuesday's game against the Tigers with a jammed right shoulder.

  • Hanley Ramirez (elbow) scratched from lineup
    Hanley Ramirez was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to a right elbow strain.

    Advice: It's not clear how the ailment popped up or how long he might be sidelined, but the Dodgers should provide more on his status later Tuesday. Justin Turner took Ramirez's spot at shortstop. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:30 pm
  • Jordy Mercer scratched with tight back
    Jordy Mercer was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to back tightness.

    Advice: It's probably safe to consider him day-to-day. Clint Barmes will play shortstop Tuesday in Mercer's place. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:10 pm
  • Hechavarria (shoulder) out of MIA lineup
    Adeiny Hechavarria is out of the Marlins' starting lineup on Tuesday due to a sore left shoulder.

    Advice: Ed Lucas will start at shortstop against the Mets. Hechavarria missed some time earlier this season with discomfort in his left elbow, but this issue has more to do with his shoulder. He is day-to-day. Rotoworld.com

  • Rays officially promote INF Nick Franklin
    Rays recalled INF Nick Franklin from Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Franklin is starting at second base and batting fifth in his Rays debut on Tuesday night against the Yankees. The 23-year-old hit .272/.366/.412 with 11 home runs and 11 stolen bases in 102 games this season between Triple-A Tacoma and Triple-A Durham. He was acquired from the Mariners in the David Price tride and is probably Tampa Bay's second baseman of the future. Rotoworld.com

  • Yanks call up INF Jose Pirela
    Yankees purchased the contract of INF Jose Pirela from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: He'll replace the injured Martin Prado (appendectomy) on the active roster. Pirela batted .305/.351/.441 with 10 homers, 60 RBI, and 15 stolen bases over 130 games this season in Triple-A and will function as a backup infielder the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com

  • Andrew Romine goes 3-for-4, knocks in two
    Andrew Romine went 3-for-4 with two RBI against the Twins in Monday's victory.

    Advice: The Tigers have soured on Eugenio Suarez, making Romine the primary shortstop by default. They'll be content with the steady defense they'll get from the former Angel. Offensive outbursts like this won't be common at all. Rotoworld.com

  • Ben Zobrist wins game for Rays
    Ben Zobrist went 2-for-5 with a game-ending single in the bottom of the ninth as the Rays edged the Yankees 1-0 on Monday.

    Advice: The game featured 11 hits, 10 of them singles. Three of those came in the bottom of the ninth off Shawn Kelley. Zobrist is 5-for-13 with over his last three games. His homer Sunday was his first since July 29. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Flaherty hits seventh homer
    Ryan Flaherty hit his seventh homer Monday in the win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: It was a two-run shot off Marcus Stroman. Flaherty started at second base tonight and later moved to third after Jonathan Schoop was brought in for defense. Schoop remains a starter, so Flaherty is really competing with Kelly Johnson for time at third. He's helped his case lately by hitting .343 in 35 at-bats this month. Rotoworld.com

    The Padres are hoping to get Everth Cabrera (hamstring) back at some point during their September 15-24 homestand.

    Advice: Cabrera is currently working out in the Instructional League. He's been sidelined since mid-August with a strained left hamstring but could provide a few steals in the final weeks for fantasy owners that might need them. Rotoworld.com

  • Rockies call up INF Adames from Triple-A
    Rockies recalled INF Cristhian Adames from Double-A Tulsa.

    Advice: Adames, 23, batted .288/.345/.368 with three home runs, 52 RBI, and 12 steals over 126 games this season between Double- and Triple-A. He was already on the 40-man roster, so the Rockies will bring him up as an extra infielder for the final two weeks. Rotoworld.com

  • D-Backs call up INF Nick Ahmed
    Diamondbacks recalled INF Nick Ahmed from Triple-A Reno.

    Advice: Reno's season came to an end on Sunday, so Ahmed will rejoin the Diamondbacks. Known for his excellent defense, the 24-year-old hit .228/.254/.316 in 19 games with the big club earlier this year. Rotoworld.com

  • Derek Jeter out of Monday's lineup
    Derek Jeter is not in Monday's lineup against the Rays.

    Advice: Jeter is hitless in his last 24 at-bats -- the second-worst hitless streak of his career -- so perhaps a day off will do him some good. Brendan Ryan will start at shortstop. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 1:05 pm
  • Solarte has two hits, two runs in loss to ARI
    Yangervis Solarte went 2-for-5 with two runs scored in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Solarte turned in his third straight multi-hit game, scoring runs in the third and ninth innings. He's got hits in six of his last seven games, including those four two-hit efforts, to raise his average to .274 since joining the Padres. Solarte is batting .262/.344/.377 overall this year.

  • Owings has two hits, stolen base against Pads
    Chris Owings went 2-for-5 with an RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in Sunday's win over the Padres.

    Advice: Owings had an RBI single and a run scored in the fifth inning. He also stole his eighth base in the inning. Since coming back from a left shoulder injury, the 23-year-old has struggled, going 9-for-43 (.209) with no extra-base hits. The injury derailed what was a decent rookie campaign. Rotoworld.com

  • Gordon steals 61st base in win over Giants
    Dee Gordon went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Sunday's win over the Giants.

    Advice: Gordon's steal was his 61st of the season, still the most in the majors. The second baseman also added two hits, his third straight two-hit game. He's got a modest eight-game hitting streak going, hitting .350 (14-for-40) with three steals and 11 runs scored in that time. Gordon is hitting .289 with a .707 OPS on the year. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Petit hit a three-run shot off Angels starter Hector Santiago in the second inning, just his second major league home run. He also doubled and scored in the fifth inning. The 29-year-old is hitting .275/.296/.449 in 26 games since being promoted in late July. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Ho hum, another two-hit day for the 21-year-old. The multi-hit game was the seventh this month for Betts, who is hitting .333 with 14 runs scored in September. After a terrible start to his major league career, Betts is now hitting .289/.365/.444 overall. Rotoworld.com

  • Baez has run scored, stolen base vs. Pirates
    Javier Baez went 1-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored against the Pirates on Sunday.

    Advice: Baez also walked in the game. He generated a run with his legs in the third inning, beating out an infield single before stealing second. The throw allowed him to go to third, and Baez scored on a sacrifice fly. He's noted for his prodigious power, but Baez now has four steals in four attempts. Rotoworld.com

  • Tampa Bay to promote infielder Nick Franklin
    Bob Sutton of the Burlington Times-News reports that the Rays will recall Nick Franklin.

    Advice: Triple-A Durham finished their International League playoff run Saturday, so Franklin will now get a chance with the big club. The Rays will finish a series in Toronto on Sunday, so Franklin seems likely to join the club on Monday in Tampa. Acquired from the Mariners in the three-team deal in July, Franklin has hit .272/.366/.412 with 11 homers and 11 steals at the Triple-A level this season and should see pretty regular playing time down the stretch. He's worth owning in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Eric Sogard goes 3-for-4
    Eric Sogard went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base Saturday against the Mariners.

  • Desmond goes 20/20 for third straight season
    Ian Desmond went 3-for-4 with three RBI in the Nationals' 10-3 rout of the Mets on Saturday.

    Advice: Desmond walked and scored in the second inning, reached on an infield single, stole a base, and scored a run in the fourth inning, smacked a two-run single and stole another base in the fifth inning, and then capped off his night with an RBI double in the eighth. He's hitting just .250/.307/.415 this season but boasts 22 homers and 21 steals. It's his third consecutive 20/20 campaign. Rotoworld.com

  • Mercer knocks in three runs Friday vs. Cubs
    Jordy Mercer went 3-for-5 with three RBI in Friday's 7-3 win over the Cubs.

    Advice: Mercer singled home a run in the fourth inning and later added a two-run single in the sixth. The 28-year-old has driven in 10 runs this month and is now up to 53 RBI on the year. He's a viable middle infielder option in mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:04 pm
  • Baez launches homer in loss to Pirates
    Javier Baez launched a solo homer Friday against the Pirates.

    Advice: It was his eighth home run and his first since August 23. We know Baez has the power potential, but the 21-year-old is hitting just .173 through 37 games in the majors and has struck out 67 times in 150 at-bats. If there's any positive to take away, he has walked six times this month after drawing just four free during his first month in the big leagues. However, he still has plenty of work to do.

  • Hechavarria plates run in loss to Phillies
    Adeiny Hechavarria drove home the Marlins lone run in Friday's loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: His RBI single in the sixth inning plated Jeff Baker, tying the game at 1-1. He finished the evening 2-for-4, raising his season slash to .280/.311/.364. He doesn't provide much in the way of power or speed, but is worth using in NL-only formats for his consistent at-bats. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeter (elbow) hitless in return to lineup
    Derek Jeter (elbow) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

    Advice: Jeter sat out the first game after being plunked on the elbow on Thursday night, but he managed to return for the nightcap. While that's good news, the 40-year-old is now hitting just .139 (5-for-36) this month and owns a measly .253/.301/.302 batting line in his final season. Rotoworld.com

  • Red Sox to play Mookie Betts at second base
    Mookie Betts is expected to play second base "fairly regularly" the rest of the way.

    Advice: The Red Sox still see Betts as an outfielder for the long-term, but he'll play second base now that Dustin Pedroia (wrist) and Brock Holt (dizziness) are both sidelined. We could see him there as soon as Friday. The move clears up a potential logjam with Rusney Castillo expected to make his major league debut soon. Rotoworld.com

  • Cabrera unlikely to rejoin Pads this weekend
    Everth Cabrera is unlikely to rejoin the Padres this weekend.

    Advice: "Let's see how this whole process plays out, even how his hamstring is," Padres manager Bud Black said. "I still think there's some information-gathering with MLB and authorities that I'm not privy to. Organizationally, we're gonna wait for all this to get settled and cleared. Then if this all plays out positively, he can get active." Cabrera was reportedly arrested for a DUI last week, likely what Black is alluding to. He's also been dealing with a hamstring strain. It sounds like a suspension of some sort may be coming down the pipe. Rotoworld.com

  • Amarista snaps morbid 0-for-17 streak
    Alexi Amarista snapped an 0-for-17 stretch of futility by going 1-for-4 with a run scored Tuesday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Amarista's calling card is his defense, but even the leather wouldn't keep him in the lineup for most teams. The Padres have always viewed offense as optional, so he makes for a nice fit. Amarista is slashing .234/.285/.298 with three homers over 359 at-bats. Rotoworld.com

    Javier Baez finished 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, and a stolen base, but the Cubs were handed a loss by the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

    Advice: Baez had been slumping, posting a .300 OPS in 10 games dating back to August 30. He scored both of the Cubs' runs on the evening: on a sacrifice fly in the first inning and on Welington Castillo's single in the fifth. The 21-year-old rookie has seven home runs, 15 RBI, three stolen bases, and a .175/.229/.364 slash line in his first 153 plate appearances in the major leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Ramirez has 4 hits in victory over San Diego
    Hanley Ramirez went 4-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in a 9-4 victory over the Padres on Monday.

    Advice: He was also caught stealing. Ramirez's RBI single in the first inning kicked off the game's scoring. By the time he touched home plate on Matt Kemp's double in the fifth, the Dodgers led 5-1 en route to a blowout victory. Ramirez came into this game having gone hitless in eight of 12 games since returning from a 15-day stint on the disabled list with a strained oblique. Rotoworld.com

    Javier Baez went hitless in a third straight game Monday and is in a 2-for-33 slump.

    Advice: At least he only struck out once tonight. That Baez is facing a learning curve is hardly a surprise. He's a massive talent, but he's always chased too many pitchers and now he's facing pitchers more capable of throwing tempting breaking balls that dive out of the zone. His average is down to .164 now, and he's fanned 62 times in 140 at-bats. Rotoworld.com

  • Everth Cabrera could be activated this week
    Everth Cabrera (hamstring) could be activated from the disabled list this weekend.

    Advice: He's been out since mid-August with a strained left hamstring but has apparently made good progress in recent days. Cabrera has hit just .232/.272/.300 when healthy this season and might not be guaranteed his starting role when he returns. Rotoworld.com

  • Desmond doubles twice vs. Hamels, Phillies
    Ian Desmond went 2-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Phillies.

    Advice: Desmond got to Phillies ace Cole Hamels for both doubles, giving him 21 doubles on the season. It was the first multi-hit game in over a week for Desmond, whose line is down to .248/.304/.417. A streaky hitter, perhaps Sunday was the start of an upswing for the 28-year-old. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The stolen base was Escobar's 28th of the season. He's hitting .278/.310/.370 overall in a nice bounceback year from his subpar 2013 season. Rotoworld.com

  • Brock Holt (illness) out of action Sunday
    Brock Holt (illness) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: There must be something going around the Red Sox' clubhouse, as both Holt and Mike Napoli have battled some dizziness as a result of an illness. Holt should be OK in a day or two. Rotoworld.com
