  • Nuno gives up three runs against Rockies
    Vidal Nuno gave up three runs over 3 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Rockies on Tuesday.

    Advice: Nuno served up two homers among his five hits allowed, and he also walked two. The start was Nuno's first of the season after making 14 starts last year. The lefty has a 2.88 ERA and 1.16 WHIP overall, and he'll stay in the rotation with J.A. Happ gone. Nuno will take his next turn Monday against the Orioles. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:43 pm
  • Gray allows three runs in major league debut
    Jon Gray allowed three runs -- two earned -- over four innings in his major league debut on Tuesday.

    Advice: Taking on the Mariners, Gray struck out four while giving up five hits and two walks. He didn't factor in the decision. The 23-year-old has huge upside but is pitching on a losing team that plays its home games in a hitter's ballpark. Gray will get a chance to pitch in a normal atmosphere when the Rockies travel to face the Mets on Monday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:38 pm
  • Nelson yields just an unearned run in victory
    Jimmy Nelson allowed only an unearned run over 6 2/3 innings in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

    Advice: Nelson gave up three hits and a walk while striking out four in the win. It was his third straight start without allowing an earned run, a stretch that spans 20 2/3 innings. Nelson moved to 9-9 with the win, his sixth in his last seven decisions, and the scoreless streak lowered his ERA to 3.57. Nelson will try to keep it going Sunday against the Cardinals.

  • Gonzalez falters late, loses to the Athletics
    Miguel Gonzalez lasted 5 1/3 innings, allowing three runs in a loss to the Athletics on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gonzalez traded zeroes with opposing starter Chris Bassitt for the first four innings, but relented an RBI single to Billy Burns in the fifth. In the sixth, Brett Lawrie hit an RBI triple, and he'd later score on a home run. He gave up five hits overall with three walks and five strikeouts. Gonzalez now has a 4.32 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP, and an 86/36 K/BB ratio over 114 2/3 innings. He'll take on the Mariners in Seattle next. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:04 pm
  • Bassitt all bite vs. Orioles with 7 scoreless
    Chris Bassitt got the win versus the Orioles on Tuesday after firing seven scoreless innings.

    Advice: The right-hander scattered five hits and two walks while striking out seven. Bassitt has been fantastic since joining the rotation at the end of June, posting a 2.43 ERA with a 26/5 K/BB ratio in six starts spanning 37 innings. Oddly enough, it's his first win. He'll toe the rubber at home against the Astros in his next start. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:01 pm
  • Straily allows four runs over 4 2/3 in loss
    Dan Straily allowed four runs over 4 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: Straily, making his first start since July 8, got through three innings unharmed before allowing four runs over his next 1 2/3 innings. He gave up six hits and walked three in total. With Mike Fiers expected to be ready to take his next turn, it's unclear when Straily will next appear. When he does, it will be with a 5.87 ERA and 1.50 WHIP. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:41 pm
  • Tyler Cravy recalled to from Triple-A
    Brewers recalled RHP Tyler Cravy from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Cravy has yielded five runs across 15 innings with the big club this season. He'll be used in long relief. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:02 pm

  • Preston Guilmet optioned to Triple-A
    Brewers optioned RHP Preston Guilmet to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Claimed off waivers last week, Guilmet was rocked for six runs over an inning of work in his last appearance with the Brew Crew. Tyler Cravy is taking his spot in the bullpen. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:00 pm
  • Corbin inefficiently gets four outs in a loss
    Patrick Corbin threw 54 pitches, but recorded only four outs and allowed three runs in a loss to the Nationals on Tuesday.

    Advice: The first inning was a disaster for the lefty. Yunel Escobar led off with a home run, then the Nationals got three more consecutive hits to plate another run. Jayson Werth brought in run number three with a ground out. He left with one out in the second inning after walking Bryce Harper to put runners on first and second. Corbin has otherwise been solid in six starts, carrying a 3.99 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, and a 30/7 K/BB ratio over 29 1/3 innings. He'll aim to rebound versus the Reds at home. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:00 pm
  • Chad Bettis (elbow) throws 'pen session
    Chad Bettis (elbow) threw a bullpen session on Tuesday.

    Advice: It was his first time throwing from the bump since he went on the disabled list over two weeks ago with right elbow inflammation. Bettis will throw off a mound again Friday before hopefully being cleared for a rehab assignment. "It was just something that flared up," Bettis said. "Now that we have a better understanding of how to go about this for myself and my career, to make sure I'm taking care of it, it's not going to be an issue." Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:51 pm

  • Jordan Walden (biceps) recalled from rehab
    Jordan Walden (biceps) has been recalled from his rehab assignment.

    Advice: Walden's return date had already been pushed back once, with the Cardinals saying he just needed to build up more strength. Now he's been shut down and his timetable is totally up in the air. "One step forward," manager Mike Matheny said. "Two steps back." The Cards acquired Steve Cishek and Jonathan Broxton at the trade deadline, no doubt in part because they knew they couldn't count on Walden. He's been out since late April with a biceps strain.

  • Tyler Wilson optioned to Triple-A
    Orioles optioned RHP Tyler Wilson to Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: Wilson was terrific in a spot start Monday, holding the A's to two runs over 7 2/3 innings. Chris Tillman (ankle) is due back later this week, though, so the O's no longer had a need for Wilson. He'll be back in September, if not sooner. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:34 pm

  • Rangers ink Phil Irwin to minors deal
    Rangers signed RHP Phil Irwin to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Irwin made a start for the Rangers last season but has spent this year in Korea. He's merely organizational depth. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:14 pm

  • Rockies call up Jon Gray for debut vs. SEA
    Rockies purchased the contract of RHP Jon Gray from Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: Gray will make his major league debut on Tuesday night against the visiting Mariners after weeks of speculation that he was on the verge of a callup. The 23-year-old right-hander was sporting a 2.90 ERA and 82 strikeouts over his last 80 2/3 innings at Triple-A and could have value as a matchups-to-matchups play down the stretch. He's not a great fantasy bet in his debut against the M's at Coors Field. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:02 pm
  • Braves place Frasor (shoulder) on DL
    Braves placed RHP Jason Frasor on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 2, with a right shoulder strain.

    Advice: No word on how long he'll be sidelined. Frasor has tossed 4 2/3 scoreless innings since joining the Braves last month. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:33 am

  • Cosart to see specialist this week
    Jarred Cosart (inner ear disorder) is scheduled to see a specialist this week in Chicago.

    Advice: Cosart landed on the disabled list in May due to vertigo and had a setback last month. The inner-ear disorder is on his right side and has impacted his "balance and gravity," but he's currently taking medication and has been throwing in recent days. More should be known this week, but he's hoping to be an option for the Marlins later this month or in September. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:24 am

  • Wilson strong in 7 2/3 IP spot start for O's
    Tyler Wilson held the Athletics to two runs in 7 2/3 innings, earning a win in a spot start on Monday.

    Advice: Wilson scattered six hits and a pair of walks with three strikeouts. He allowed a run in the fourth inning on an RBI single to Ike Davis, and the other on an RBI double from Stephen Vogt in the eighth. The right-hander has been effective in 24 2/3 innings in the majors this year, sporting a 2.19 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and a 7/5 K/BB ratio. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:56 pm

  • Dan Straily to start on Tuesday vs. Rangers
    Dan Straily will start on Tuesday against the Rangers.

    Advice: Mike Fiers had been slated to take the ball but was forced to make his Astros' debut in relief on Monday after Lance McCullers lasted just one-third of an inning. Straily holds a 5.06 ERA over two spot starts for the Astros this season. He'll likely make at least two starts with the big club with McCullers being sent down. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:54 pm
  • Jon Gray to make MLB debut Tuesday night
    Jon Gray will make his major league debut on Tuesday night against the visiting Mariners.

    Advice: There have been rumors for weeks that Gray was on the verge of a callup, and the well-built 23-year-old right-hander is now finally getting his shot. Gray, the second overall pick in the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft, owns a 2.90 ERA and 82 strikeouts over his last 80 2/3 innings at Triple-A Albuquerque. He's MLB-ready and one of the top young starters in baseball, though Coors Field can be hell on pitchers of all profiles. Fantasy owners might want to take it start-by-start with him out of the gate. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:25 am
  • Tyler Wilson to start for Orioles on Monday
    Orioles recalled RHP Tyler Wilson from Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: He'll draw a spot start for the Orioles on Monday against the Athletics in Oakland. The 25-year-old hurler has appeared in five games for the O's this season, compiling a 2.12 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 4/3 K/BB ratio in 17 innings. He doesn't make for a very attractive streaming option in mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:37 pm

  • Vidal Nuno to start on Tuesday
    Vidal Nuno will start on Tuesday in Colorado.

    Advice: He's taking J.A. Happ's spot in the rotation. Nuno boasts a 2.02 ERA and 38/8 K/BB ratio over 35 2/3 relief innings between the D'Backs and Mariners this season. The downside is that he hasn't thrown more than 2 2/3 innings in any appearance this month, so he'll be pretty limited from a pitch count perspective on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:34 am
  • Jordan Walden's (biceps) rehab slowed
    Jordan Walden (biceps) will not come off the disabled list early next week as hoped.

    Advice: Walden hasn't had a setback, but rather the Cardinals think he just needs to build up more arm strength. Their acquisition of Jonathan Broxton on Friday no doubt was related to Walden's stalled return. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:43 pm
    60-Day DL

  • Brewers claim Preston Guilmet off waivers
    Brewers claimed RHP Preston Guilmet off waivers from the Dodgers.

    Advice: Guilmet has allowed three runs over 5 1/3 relief innings during his brief time in the majors this season. He'll join the Brews' bullpen. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:28 am
  • Jimmy Nelson goes seven scoreless
    Jimmy Nelson pitched seven shutout innings for the second straight start Thursday in a no-decision against the Cubs.

    Advice: This one was better than last week's, in which he allowed five hits and struck out five. Tonight, he allowed just two hits and struck out eight. It's certainly encouraging for the Brewers that Nelson is in the midst of a second-half surge, but we're still not sure he has a lot to offer mixed leaguers, especially with runs and wins becoming tougher to come by. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:24 pm
  • Bassitt only gets 1 run support again in loss
    Chris Bassitt gave up three earned runs across seven frames in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Indians.

    Advice: Bassitt surrendered six hits and one walk while punching out six. It wasn't an altogether bad outing, but life isn't fair: Bassitt has received five runs of support combined in five starts for Oakland. That helps explain why he's 0-4 despite a 3.10 ERA. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:34 pm
  • Miguel Gonzalez gives up five runs to Tigers
    Miguel Gonzalez surrendered five runs and 10 hits in 3 1/3 innings Thursday against the Tigers.

    Advice: It's the third time in six starts that Gonzalez has allowed at least five runs. On the other hand, he's pitched well and won each of the other three outings in that span. He's not all that much of a fantasy starter, but he's still helping the Orioles. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:30 pm
  • Walden (biceps) exits outing due to heat
    Jordan Walden (biceps) made an early exit from his rehab outing Wednesday in Memphis due to heat.

    Advice: It was a scorcher in southwest Tennessee, so the Triple-A Memphis Redbirds only had Walden throw two-thirds of an inning. The good news is that his arm is feeling fine and he is already scheduled to make another rehab appearance Friday. Walden, who's been out since late April with a biceps strain, should be cleared to return to the Cardinals' bullpen by early next week. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:01 am
    60-Day DL

  • Patrick Corbin fans six in victory over M's
    Patrick Corbin delivered an impressive outing in Wednesday's victory over the Mariners, fanning six over six innings of one-run ball.

    Advice: Corbin scattered just three hits and a pair of walks on the afternoon. The only damage against him came on an RBI single by Brad Miller in the fourth inning. Since returning from Tommy John surgery, Corbin has compiled a 3.21 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 29/5 K/BB ratio over 28 innings. He needs to be owned and started in all mixed leagues at this point. He'll take on the Nationals his next time out in Washington on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:51 pm
  • Jarred Cosart (vertigo) still sidelined
    Jarred Cosart (vertigo) remains shut down at Triple-A New Orleans.

    Advice: Cosart had a recurrence of vertigo earlier this month and it's unclear when he'll be ready to return to the mound. "He actually is having one final evaluation and then the medication will begin," Marlins manager Dan Jennings said. "Hopefully they've now identified everything that was causing the situation."
