  • Rosales goes 3-for-4 with a steal in victory
    Adam Rosales went 3-for-4 with a steal in Wednesday's 6-1 win against the A's.

    Advice: He's 6-for-12 (.500) with two walks over his last three games, the past two of which have come against his former team. Which must be sweet. You might recall last year's Rosales transaction shenanigans between these two clubs. If not, here's your primer: The A's DFA'd him on Deadline Day, the Rangers claimed him on August 2, they DFA'd him on August 5, the A's claimed him back on August 8 and DFA'd him on August 10. The Rangers got him back for good on yet another claim two days later. Rosales has surprisingly turned into a productive AL-only player as the season winds down. He's now slashing .297/.371/.445 across 46 games. Rotoworld.com

  • OF Brown has 2 hits in win agaisnt Padres
    Domonic Brown went 2-for-4 with a run scored in the Phillies' win over the Padres on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's been a long, lonely, treacherous season for the 2013 revelation. But he just finished off a solid series at Petco, going 4-for-11 (.363) with a homer and a steal. Hey, his owners will take whatever they can get at this point. Brown, slashing .234/.286/.353, is very likely playing out the string on his Phillies' career. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported earlier this month that the Phillies will look to trade Brown this winter. Rotoworld.com

  • Cron goes 2-for-3 with HR vs. the Mariners
    C.J. Cron went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer in a win over the Mariners on Wednesday.

    Advice: Cron had gone 1-for-10 with zero RBI in his previous five games since going deep for the last time. At this point in his career, Cron is a bit of an all-or-nothing proposition. The .482 slugging percentage is spectacular, but he'll want to get on base at a better than .301 clip in future campaigns. Rotoworld.com

  • Ian Kinsler goes 0-for-5 in loss
    Ian Kinsler went 0-for-5 against the Twins in Wednesday's loss.

    Advice: Kinsler has escaped the criticism given to Joe Nathan and Justin Verlander, but he's been among the Tigers' biggest liabilities lately, with a .239 average and a horrible .265 OBP in 314 at-bats since the beginning of July. He's walked a total of 27 times in 151 games this year, down from 51 in 136 games last year and a high of 89 in 155 games in 2011. As a result, he's set to finish with easily the worst OBP of his career, even though he's hitting right at his career average. Rotoworld.com

  • Jose Ramirez goes hitless again
    Jose Ramirez went 0-for-4 on Wednesday and is hitless in 10 at-bats in the series against the Astros.

    Yesterday, 7:37 pm
  • Yelich reaches base 3 times in win over NYM

    Evan Longoria went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Pearce put the O's up 3-1 with the jack in the first off of Drew Hutchison.

    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

  • Domonic Brown returns to lineup with two hits
    Domonic Brown (shoulder) returned to action on Friday, going 2-for-4 in an extra-inning victory over the Marlins.

    Advice: Brown left Wednesday's game with a left shoulder contusion sustained after diving for a ball in the outfield, then sat out Thursday's contest as a precautionary measure. After a breakout 2013 season, the 2014 campaign hasn't been as kind to the 27-year-old outfielder as he's slashing just .233/.285/.349 with nine homers and 59 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • C.J. Cron returns to lineup
    C.J. Cron returned to action on Friday and went 0-for-3 against the Astros.

    Advice: Cron had been out with a sore wrist. He'll likely head back to the bench versus righty Scott Feldman on Saturday, but he should get another start versus left-hander Dallas Keuchel on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • Kinsler has two hits, RBI as Tigers top Tribe
    Ian Kinsler had a nice night at the dish in Friday's victory over the Indians, going 2-for-5 with a double, run scored and RBI.

    Advice: Kinsler got the Tigers on the board with an RBI double in the third inning that plated Nick Castellanos. He would later single and race home on an RBI single off the bat of Victor Martinez. He has done a very nice job as a table-setter for the Tigers this season, slashing .278/.309/.415 with 13 homers, 92 runs scored, 79 RBI and 15 stolen bases. Rotoworld.com

    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

  • Domonic Brown available off the bench
    Domonic Brown (shoulder) is available to pinch-hit Thursday.

    Advice: Brown left Wednesday's game with a left shoulder injury, but he's fine. He probably could have started Thursday but was slated to come off the bench, anyway, with the Phillies facing lefty Francisco Liriano. "He's available. He got a little stinger last night in his shoulder area that he initially felt. It tightened up a little bit as we went along but the bigger issue out there was he just got the wind knocked out of him," manager Ryne Sandberg said. Rotoworld.com

Pujols has given the Angels three three-hit games in his last five starts, delivering two homers and eight RBI during the span. He's up to .278 with 26 homers and 92 RBI for the year. Rotoworld.com

  • Longoria homers as Rays fall to the Yankees
    Evan Longoria went 1-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run as the Rays took an 8-5 loss to the Yankees on Wednesday.

    Advice: Longoria's home run was too little, too late, as it came in the ninth inning off of Esmil Rogers. The third baseman has homered three times in his last seven games and now has 20 on the season along with 85 RBI and a .254/.322/.403 slash line. It is certainly a disappointing season but he is attempting to end the regular season on a positive note. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Brown dove for a ball in left field in the fifth inning but stayed in the game at the time. He was later pinch-hit for by Darin Ruf. The Phillies should update his status after the game, but it's likely a day-to-day situation for now. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Gattis missed a second straight game Tuesday due to strep throat.

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

  • Pujols goes 3-for-5 with HR in rout of Tribe
    Albert Pujols finished 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI in Monday's 12-3 rout of the Indians.

    Advice: Pujols was retired in his first two at-bats of the afternoon makeup game, but he singled and scored in the Angels' six-run fifth inning and then did the same in the Angels' two-run seventh inning before launching a three-run bomb in the top of the ninth. Pujols had a huge weekend in Minnesota, collecting his 2,500th career hit and 1,500th career run, and he looks poised to keep the fun going for a while. The veteran slugger boasts has 26 homers and 91 RBI in 141 games this year. Rotoworld.com

  • Puig (stomach) goes 0-for-2 in return Sunday
    Yasiel Puig (stomach) finished 0-for-2 with a walk in his return to the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Puig was held out of action on Saturday with a minor stomach problem. An IV did the trick, but the struggling 23-year-old basically seems to be splitting time in center field at this point with Joc Pederson. It's all very poor timing for Puig's fantasy owners. He had a .959 OPS on August 3. That's now down to .861. Rotoworld.com
