  • Dodgers call up Joc Pederson from Triple-A
    Dodgers purchased the contract of OF Joc Pederson from Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: Pederson won the Pacific Coast League MVP Award after batting .303/.435/.582 with 33 home runs and 30 stolen bases over 121 games this season. While he's an exciting player for the long-term, he's unlikely to be relevant in standard mixed leagues in September unless there's an injury in the Dodgers' outfield.

    Yasiel Puig was dropped down to sixth in the lineup for Monday's game against the Nationals.

    Advice: Puig has never batted lower than fifth in a start, but his struggles have forced Don Mattingly's hand. The 23-year-old hit .216 with zero homers in August.

  • Mariners recall Justin Smoak from AAA level
    Mariners recalled 1B Justin Smoak from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Smoak has put up huge numbers this season at the Triple-A level, but the 27-year-old first baseman has never been able to translate that success to the major leagues. He is doubtful to carry fantasy value this month.

    Miguel Cabrera (ankle) is serving as the Tigers' designated hitter on Monday against the Indians.

    Advice: Cabrera made an early exit from the second half of Saturday's doubleheader with the White Sox after aggravating his lingering right ankle injury. He then sat out Sunday, but will try to give it a go Monday evening. The reigning MVP won't be fully healthy until the winter.

    Diamondbacks activated OF Cody Ross from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Ross missed five weeks with a calf strain. He was batting just .238/.287/.306 in 66 games before the injury and is doubtful to carry fantasy relevance down the stretch.

  • Wong has passed additional concussion tests
    Kolten Wong (head) passed additional concussion tests on Monday morning in St. Louis.

    Advice: Wong made an early exit from Sunday's series finale against the Cubs after banging his head on the ground while trying to make a diving catch in shallow right-center field.

  • Pedroia (head) is unlikely to play this week
    Dustin Pedroia (concussion) is unlikely to return to the Red Sox lineup before the weekend.

    Advice: Pedroia suffered a concussion Saturday when took a forearm to the head in a nasty collision at second base. He was still symptomatic as of Monday morning and Red Sox manager John Farrell said it would be "optimistic" to think that he could play in the club's upcoming three-game series against the Yankees. Brock Holt is starting at second base in Monday's series finale in Tampa Bay.
    Today, 8:30 am
  • Rizzo (back) out of Cubs' lineup again Mon.
    Anthony Rizzo (back) is not in the Cubs' starting lineup on Monday afternoon against the Brewers.

    Advice: Rizzo sat out the Cubs' entire four-game weekend series in St. Louis due to tightness in his lower back and will now miss Monday's series-opener with the Brewers. The Cubs haven't offered any indication about when he might return. Chris Valaika is at first base Monday.

  • Rays activate OF DeJesus (hand) off the DL
    Rays activated OF David DeJesus from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: DeJesus missed nearly two-and-a-half months with a fracture in his left hand. The 34-year-old outfielder was off to a pretty good start before the injury, boasting an .806 OPS with five home runs in 62 games. He can be thrown back into lineups in AL-only fantasy leagues.
    Today, 7:39 am
  • Braves recall Joey Terdoslavich from Triple-A
    Braves recalled OF Joey Terdoslavich from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Terdoslavich was hitting .256/.337/.385 in 569 plate appearances this season at the Triple-A level. The 25-year-old can play first base and both corner outfield spots but probably won't get much playing time in Atlanta.

    Braves recalled OF Jose Constanza from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Constanza will operate as outfield depth for the Braves over the final month of the regular season. He is a .278/.322/.329 career hitter in 100 major league games.

    Brewers recalled OF Logan Schafer to Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Schafer will give the Brewers some outfield depth for the stretch run. He is a pretty good defender but has hit just .210/.280/.325 in 211 career major league games.
    Today, 5:31 am
  • Indians and Royals game suspended in 10th
    Sunday's series finale between the Indians and Royals has been suspended in the 10th inning due to inclement weather and will resume on September 22 in Cleveland.

    Advice: Just before play was suspended, Lonnie Chisenhall delivered a pinch-hit two-out, two-run double in the 10th inning to give the Tribe a 4-2 lead. In the meanwhile, the Royals will remain a 1/2 game ahead of the Tigers in the American League Central.

  • Dustin Pedroia (head) will not play on Monday
    Red Sox manager John Farrell said Sunday that Dustin Pedroia (concussion) will not play on Monday.

    Advice: Pedroia took a forearm to the head in Saturday's contest against the Rays and has been experiencing concussion-like symptoms ever since. It's very likely that he will need a couple of days off, and will have to pass the standard concussion protocol before he's cleared to return to the lineup.
    Yesterday, 2:10 pm
  • Kolten Wong sustains head injury on Sunday
    Kolten Wong was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Cubs after sustaining a head injury when crashing into the ground attempting to corral a shallow pop fly to right-center field.

    Advice: Wong was able to walk off the field under his own power with the team's training staff. He'll likely be put through the standard concussion protocol, and it could be a couple of days before he's cleared to rejoin the Cardinals lineup. He was replaced by Pete Kozma, who could see additional time at second base should Wong require any type of extended absence.

  • Pedroia (concussion) not in Sunday's lineup
    Dustin Pedroia (concussion) is not in the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Pedroia was displaying concussion-like symptoms after leaving Saturday's game versus the Rays when he took a forearm to the head. He would normally be placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list, but with roster expansion coming, a move isn't needed. He will, however, have to pass MLB concussion protocol before being cleared to return to action. Brock Holt is at second base Sunday and could remain at the position for a while.
    Yesterday, 8:35 am
  • Cabrera out Sunday; extended rest possible
    Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Saturday that resting Miguel Cabrera (ankle) for 4-5 days is "a possibility."

    Advice: Cabrera has been nursing a nagging right ankle injury for a while and had to exit the second game of Saturday's doubleheader. However, Ausmus isn't sure a few days of rest will make a difference, noting that Cabrera probably won't be fully healthy for the rest of the season. He is not in the Tigers' lineup Sunday. "It's a possibility," Ausmus said of resting Cabrera. "But this thing comes and goes. Prior to today, the last couple days he said it felt really good. Then today it flares up again. I don't know if four or five days -- although we've discussed it -- I don't know if four or five days would do anything, because sometimes he comes in from sleeping overnight and it feels good."
    Yesterday, 8:32 am
  • Pedroia showing concussion-like symptoms
    Dustin Pedroia was displaying concussion-like symptoms after leaving Saturday's loss to the Rays.

    Advice: Pedroia got hit in the head by Kevin Kiermaier's forearm in a nasty second-inning collision. He's scheduled to see a doctor in Tampa on Sunday morning and seems likely to be placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list.
    Saturday, 7:32 pm
  • Miguel Cabrera (ankle) departs game early
    Miguel Cabrera made an early exit from the second half of Saturday's doubleheader with the White Sox after appearing to aggravate his lingering right ankle injury.

    Advice: It was overly ambitious of the Tigers to think that Cabrera -- who has been limping around for weeks -- could gut it out for both games. He looked to be in serious discomfort on a groundout in the top of the fourth inning and did not take the field for the bottom of the fourth. Cabrera can probably be considered day-to-day through the rest of 2014.
    Saturday, 5:32 pm
  • Pedroia exits game with apparent head injury
    Dustin Pedroia left Saturday's game against the Rays with an apparent head injury.

    Advice: Pedroia got struck in the face by Kevin Kiermaier's forearm on a collision at the second base bag in the bottom of the second inning. Brock Holt moved from third base to second base and Will Middlebrooks took over at the hot corner. The Red Sox should provide an update on Pedroia at some point Saturday night.
    Saturday, 5:03 pm
  • Rizzo (back) expected to sit out all weekend
    Anthony Rizzo (back) is not expected to return to the lineup this weekend.

    Advice: Rizzo was pulled from Tuesday's game due to tightness in his lower back and has yet to progress enough to return to the lineup. He'll hope to be back in the lineup during the Cubs' homestand, which begins Monday. Chris Valaika will once again draw the start at first base in his place.
    Saturday, 8:19 am
  • Cody Ross expected to return on Monday
    Cody Ross (calf) took live batting practice without issue on Friday, and is expected to return to the Diamondbacks on Monday when rosters expand.

    Advice: Ross was also able to run the bases on Friday. He has been sidelined since mid-July due to a strained calf, and isn't expected to see everyday at-bats even after his return. His days of fantasy relevancy in mixed leagues look to be over.
    Friday, 4:18 pm
  • Yasiel Puig not in Dodgers lineup Friday
    Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Friday.

    Advice: Andre Ethier will get the start in center field for the slumping slugger who could use a mental health day. He will return to the lineup on Saturday.
    Friday, 3:19 pm

  • Anthony Rizzo (back) held out again Friday
    Anthony Rizzo (back) remained out of the Cubs' lineup Friday.

    Advice: The Cubs said that they pulled Rizzo from Tuesday's game as a precaution due to lower back tightness, but he's now sitting out a third straight game, so he obviously hasn't progressed as hoped. Chris Valaika is covering first base Friday.
    Friday, 1:50 pm
  • Hosmer could begin rehab stint this weekend
    Eric Hosmer (hand) could begin a rehab assignment this weekend.

    Advice: Hosmer began swinging a bat earlier this week and took batting practice Thursday for the first time since landing on the disabled list. The first baseman should only need a handful of rehab games before being activated, so a return next week is looking likely.
    Thursday, 4:19 pm
  • Mauer not in Thursday's lineup
    Joe Mauer is not in Thursday's lineup against the Royals.

    Advice: He's presumably just getting a breather. Chris Parmelee will start at first base.

  • Anthony Rizzo (back) sitting again Thursday
    Anthony Rizzo (back) is out again Thursday.

    Advice: Rizzo also sat out Wednesday after leaving Tuesday's series-opener against the Reds with lower back tightness. He's still considered day-to-day. Chris Valaika will start at first base in Thursday's series finale.
    Thursday, 6:30 am
  • Anthony Rizzo (back) sitting out Wednesday
    Anthony Rizzo (back) is not in the Cubs' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Rizzo exited Tuesday's game due to lower back tightness. It's not considered a big deal, but the Cubs want to be safe. Rizzo should be back in there in a day or two. Chris Valaika is playing first base Wednesday.
    Wednesday, 11:20 am
  • Miguel Cabrera scores run in return to action
    Miguel Cabrera doubled and scored a run in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Cabrera has been nursing a right ankle injury and is still noticeably gimpy. Unless it gets worse, though, he figures to play through the ailment.
    Wednesday, 1:46 am
  • Pedroia homers, knocks in 4 to pace Red Sox
    Dustin Pedroia clubbed a two-run home run and hit a two-run single in six plate appearances in Tuesday's 11-inning win against the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

    Advice: Pedroia kicked off the scoring with a two-run home run in the first inning. As the game was tied up 4-4 in the 11th, Pedroia started off what turned out to be a seven-run frame with a two-run single. The second baseman has homered in consecutive games, giving him seven on the season along with 51 RBI and a .281/.341/.382 slash line.
    Tuesday, 8:49 pm
  • Mauer drives in Twins' lone run versus Royals
    Joe Mauer went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Tuesday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Mauer broke a scoreless tie with his RBI single off Royals starter Danny Duffy in the seventh inning. The run batted in was Mauer's 40th RBI on the year. The 31-year-old has come back swinging since returning from his oblique injury, batting .309 with 12 RBI in the month of August.

  • Anthony Rizzo day-to-day with tight back
    Anthony Rizzo left Tuesday's game against the Reds as a precaution due to lower back tightness.

    Advice: The Cubs double-switched him out of the game with a three-run lead. Rizzo should have a shot to return to the lineup on Wednesday. He slugged his 30th homer of the season in one of his four at-bats before exiting.
    Tuesday, 7:40 pm
  • Yonder Alonso to have surgery on Friday
    Yonder Alonso will undergo surgery Friday to repair a damaged tendon in his right forearm.

    Advice: He'll need 5-7 weeks of rehab, so Alonso's readiness for spring training won't be an issue. The first baseman will be arbitration-eligible for the first time this offseason.

  • Quentin (knee) likely done for the season
    Padres manager Bud Black said Monday that Carlos Quentin (knee) is "more than likely" done for the season.

    Advice: Quentin recently received a second opinion on his bruised left knee, and while he wasn't advised to have surgery, he was prescribed some extended rest. "When you have a bone bruise, the only thing you can really do is rest," Black said. "And that's the course of action." Quentin played in a career-low 50 games this season and hasn't reached the 90-game plateau since 2011. He's under contract for $8 million in 2015.

  • Hosmer (hand) cleared to begin swinging bat
    Eric Hosmer (hand) has been cleared to begin swinging a bat.

    Advice: Hosmer underwent a follow-up MRI on the stress fracture in his right hand Monday and it showed significant healing. He is aiming to begin a minor league rehab assignment in about a week and should be back on the Royals' active roster before the middle of September.
    Aug 25, 12:54 pm
  • Revere has two hits, scores twice vs. Cards
    Ben Revere went 2-for-3 with an RBI single and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Revere also walked and stole his 38th base of the season in the game. The outfielder is hitting .314 with a .700 OPS, and he finished the series against the Cardinals going 5-for-12 with four runs scored.
    Aug 24, 1:15 pm
  • Miguel Cabrera (ankle) not in Sunday's lineup
    Miguel Cabrera (ankle) is not in the Tigers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Cabrera has been nursing a right ankle injury recently and aggravated it while playing both games of Saturday's doubleheader. He could be available to pinch-hit and seems likely to be back in the lineup on Tuesday. Don Kelly is getting the start at first base Sunday.
    Aug 24, 9:43 am
  • Hosmer hopes to resume swinging bat Mon.
    Eric Hosmer (hand) hopes to be cleared to resume swinging a bat on Monday after undergoing another X-ray.

    Advice: Royals manager Ned Yost said on Tuesday that Hosmer was likely another couple of weeks away from swinging a bat, but is appears he may have jumped the gun. The first baseman has been on the shelf since late July with a stress fracture in his right hand and is likely a few weeks away from a return even if he gains clearance on Monday.
    Aug 24, 9:21 am
  • Joc Pederson is not expected to play often
    Joc Pederson will not play often when he's called up, according to Dodgers manager Don Mattingly.

    Advice: "I'm not going to just throw him out there," said Mattingly on Saturday. Pederson will make his major league debut after rosters expand in September but he is probably not worth picking up in a redraft league unless there's an injury to a current starting outfielder.
    Aug 23, 3:53 pm
  • Yasiel Puig gets day off Saturday vs. Mets
    Yasiel Puig is not in the lineup Saturday versus the Mets.

    Advice: This is just a day of rest for the center fielder. He is batting .307/.389/.504 with 13 home runs and 59 RBI on the season for the Dodgers.

  • Dodgers OF prospect Pederson hits 32nd homer
    Dodgers outfield prospect Joc Pederson went 2-for-4 with a home run and two walks for Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday.

    Advice: Pederson leads the Triple-A Pacific Coast League with 32 home runs, is fourth with 29 stolen bases, first with 93 walks (second place has 60), and first with 139 strikeouts. The 22-year old Pederson is hitting a robust .301/.432/.586, and would likely have made his major league debut in May or June if the Dodgers did not have such an overloaded outfield. His future role will be determined by moves made by the Dodgers in the off-season. Pederson will be called up on September 1, though playing time may be hard to find.
    Aug 23, 8:23 am
  • Revere's three hits, two runs propel Phillies
    Ben Revere went 3-for-4 with two runs scored in the Phillies' 5-4 win over the Cardinals on Friday.
