  • Garcia coughs up four runs to Giants
    Jaime Garcia earned the win in Sunday's victory of the Giants, allowing four runs on 10 hits over 6 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Garcia might have improved to 7-5 with the win, but this wasn't one of his better starts. He kept the Giants in the game by allowing a pair of runs in the first and another pair in the sixth. For the afternoon, he struck out just one batter. Sunday's sketchy outing aside, the 29-year-old southpaw owns a cool 2.03 ERA and 0.93 WHIP over 14 starts. He'll tango with the Pirates in an upcoming home start. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:15 pm
  • Olmos surrenders three runs in five innings
    Making his first career start, Edgar Olmos allowed three runs on five hits over five innings in Sunday's no-decision against the White Sox.

    Advice: In addition to the five hits allowed, Olmos also walked five batters. The 25-year-old southpaw had been working from the bullpen prior to Sunday's start, with 7 2/3 scoreless innings out of the pen at the big league level. He held a 3.55 ERA in 20 Triple-A relief appearances prior to being called up on August 17. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:14 pm
  • Fielder singles twice in win over O's
    Prince Fielder went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in Sunday's win over the Orioles.

    Advice: Nothing spectacular here for Fielder, but he continues to rake, as he's done all season. The big man is slashing .316/.379/.470 with 17 homers and 78 RBI. If he can keep that average on the right side of .300, this would go down as just the second season of his career in which he's achieved that feat. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:01 pm
  • Carter destroys 441-foot home run
    Chris Carter went 1-for-3 with a long, long home run in Sunday's loss to the Twins.

    Advice: Carter clubbed his three-run, 441-foot shot in the ninth inning, but the Twins held a 7-0 lead at the time and the gigantic bomb merely served as an exclamation point on the Astro's loss. The free-swinger has put in yet another one of his no-average, a-fair-bit-of-power campaigns, as he's currently slashing .183/.296/.378 with 18 bombs, 52 RBI and 136 strikeouts over 344 at-bats.

  • Paulsen legs out two-run triple vs PIT
    Ben Paulsen went 2-for-3 with a two-run triple and a walk in Sunday's win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Paulsen hit his three-bagger off Pirates starter Charlie Morton in the fourth inning. It was his fourth triple of the season. The 27-year-old 1B/OF has hit to a .280/.331/.483 batting line this season, with 10 homers and 42 RBI over 271 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:42 pm

  • Morton can't manage quality start vs COL
    Charlie Morton fell to 8-5 in Sunday's loss to the Rockies, surrendering five runs (three earned) over six innings.

    Advice: Morton scattered six hits while striking out six and walking two, with three runs scoring in the fourth and another two in the sixth. This marks two stinkers in a row for the veteran right-hander, who has now allowed 10 runs in his last 11 1/3 innings. For the season, he's pitching to a 4.22 ERA and 1.30 WHIP. A tough Saturday afternoon road outing against the Cardinals shows next on his schedule. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:39 pm
  • Justin Turner not in Dodgers lineup on Sunday
    Justin Turner is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Sunday.

    Advice: It's nothing more than a regular day of rest for Turner. Kike Hernandez is getting the start in his place at the hot corner with Joc Pederson starting in center field. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:35 pm

  • Duffy's 5 solid frames results in no-decision
    Danny Duffy gave up two runs in five innings, taking a no-decision on Sunday as the Royals fell to the Rays.

    Advice: Duffy allowed a run-scoring single in the first inning and a solo home run to Brandon Guyer in the third, accounting for all of the damage. They were two of seven hits the lefty gave up along with two walks and six strikeouts. He now has a 4.11 ERA with a 1.41 WHIP and a 72/44 K/BB ratio over 114 innings. Duffy has a date with the White Sox at home next. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:31 pm
  • Guyer's three-hit day leads Rays over Royals
    Brandon Guyer went 3-for-4 with a solo home run as the Rays took down the Royals on Sunday.

    Advice: Guyer led off the bottom of the first inning with a single and later scored. He added a solo home run in the third inning to tie the game at two apiece. The outfielder has had a sneakily solid year for the Rays, batting .270/.372/.407 with six home runs, 24 RBI, 34 runs scored, and 10 stolen bases in 293 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:27 pm
  • Syndergaard stumbles late in a no-decision
    Noah Syndergaard fell apart late in Sunday's win over the Red Sox, taking a no-decision in allowing four runs in 6 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Syndergaard allowed his first runs on David Ortiz's two-run home run in the sixth. He allowed an RBI double to Jackie Bradley, Jr. before departing, but reliever Hansel Robles allowed his inherited runner to score. All told, Syndergaard gave up six hits and a walk while striking out three. He now has a 3.31 ERA with a 1.14 WHIP and a 129/29 K/BB ratio over 122 1/3 innings. The right-hander is on track to face the Marlins in Miami next, but the Mets are aiming to limit his and Matt Harvey's innings the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:22 pm
  • Alfredo Simon lit up by Blue Jays
    Alfredo Simon was torched for six runs on six hits -- including four home runs -- over five innings in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Simon never had a chance, serving up a couple dingers in the first, another one in the second and a final one in the fourth. The Blue Jays are creaming everyone these days, but this outing was a continuation of a rotten stretch for Simon, who has allowed at least four runs in 11 of his last 13 starts. He'll get the Indians next. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:17 pm
  • Weaver hammered for 8 runs over 6 innings
    Jered Weaver lost to the Indians on Sunday, surrendering eight runs in six innings of work.

    Advice: The Indians hit a pair of RBI doubles in the first inning, but Weaver settled in with three scoreless innings. He slipped up again in the fifth, serving up a grand slam to Abraham Almonte. Overall, the right-hander gave up nine hits and walked four while striking out two. Weaver's awful 2015 season is almost over, as he carries a 4.94 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, and a 67/22 K/BB ratio over 125 2/3 innings. He'll try to rebound in a home start versus the Rangers next.

  • Tim Lincecum (hips) suffers setback
    Tim Lincecum (hips) recently had a setback while rehabbing at the Giants' spring training complex.

    Advice: Lincecum was diagnosed with a degenerative hip condition in mid-July but will now send his MRIs to another specialist. According to Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News, the right-hander is "exploring all treatment options." His status for the remainder of the season is up in the air.

  • Phillies claim Ken Roberts off waivers
    Phillies claimed LHP Ken Roberts off waivers from the Rockies; optioned him to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Roberts was designated for assignment on Friday. He's struggled in the majors (5.79 ERA) and at Triple-A (5.12 ERA) this season, but the lefty's numbers pre-2015 suggest that he's worth a shot for the Phillies. He'll be up when rosters expand. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:55 am

  • Jhonny Peralta sitting out on Sunday
    Jhonny Peralta is not in the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a simple day off. Greg Garcia is filling in for Peralta at shortstop. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:04 am
  • Edgar Olmos to start for Mariners on Sunday
    Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon announced Friday that Edgar Olmos will make his first career start on Sunday.

    Advice: The 25-year-old southpaw has appeared out of the bullpen in all four of his outings with the M's this season, hurling 7 2/3 scoreless innings. He could be worth a look as a streaming option in AL-only leagues, though he's unlikely to work deep into the ballgame. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:31 pm
  • Ken Roberts designated for assignment
    Rockies designated LHP Ken Roberts for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Jason Gurka. Roberts holds a 5.79 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in 9 1/3 major league innings this season with the big club. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:40 pm

  • Lincecum (hips) could rejoin team by Sept. 1
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tim Lincecum (hips) will be ready to return by September 1.

    Advice: Lincecum or Tim Hudson could even supplant Matt Cain in the rotation, Bochy hinted. Lincecum has been out since the end of June, first with a forearm contusion and later with degenerative hips. Even if he does return to the rotation, there is little left in the fantasy tank for Lincecum. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:16 pm

  • Peralta collects two hits, two RBI in win
    Jhonny Peralta went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Peralta had an RBI sacrifice fly in the fourth before swatting an RBI single, one of the Cards' 12 hits on the night, in the sixth. The good game extended his modest hitting streak to eight games. In all, Peralta is batting .286/.343/.444 with 16 homers, 58 RBI and 52 runs scored. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:37 pm
  • Garcia limits D'backs to one run in victory
    Jaime Garcia held the Diamondbacks to one run over six innings in a win Tuesday.

    Advice: Garcia was sharp on a night that he didn't have to be, scattering four hits and a walk over his six innings. The left-hander struck out six before exiting. The win improved Garcia to 6-4 with a microscopic 1.77 ERA and 0.92 WHIP through 13 starts. Garcia will next face the Giants in San Francisco on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:34 pm
  • Duffy limits O's to two runs in five innings
    Danny Duffy held the Orioles to two runs over 5 2/3 innings, earning the win on Tuesday.

    Advice: Duffy relented both runs in the fourth inning when the O's followed up a two-out walk with three consecutive singles. Overall, the lefty allowed five hits, walked two, and struck out five. Since returning from the disabled list on June 24, Duffy has a 3.18 ERA over 12 starts. He'll close out the month of August for the Royals with a road start versus the Rays next. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:16 pm
  • Syndergaard wins despite allowing two homers
    Noah Syndergaard gave up a pair of two-run home runs to the Phillies over five innings on Tuesday but still got the win.

    Advice: Syndergaard had the bat-missing stuff, as he struck out nine, but the Phillies figured him out in the third inning as Freddy Galvis and Ryan Howard each hit two-run home runs. He gave up four hits and two walks overall. The Mets are alternating skipping Syndergaard's and Matt Harvey's starts the rest of the way, and it's Syndergaard's turn next. He'll ride the pine with a 3.19 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and a 126/28 K/BB ratio over 115 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:41 pm
  • Weaver wins despite unsharp outing vs. Tigers
    Jered Weaver lucked into a win on Tuesday against the Tigers, as he yielded six runs in 5 2/3 innings.

    Advice: The Angels scored four times in the first inning. Weaver gave it all back in the third when the Tigers plated four runs, three of which came in on a Miguel Cabrera double. James McCann hit a two-run home run in the sixth. Overall, Weaver gave up seven hits, walked none, and struck out one. He had been solid since returning from the disabled list before Tuesday's hiccup. On the season, Weaver has a 4.59 ERA, a 1.19 WHIP, and a 65/18 K/BB ratio over 119 2/3 innings. He'll take on the Indians in a road match-up next. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:27 pm
  • Simon smoked by the Angels, taking 8th loss
    Alfredo Simon took his eighth loss of the season on Tuesday versus the Angels after surrendering eight runs in 4 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Simon was coming off of a one-hit shutout against the Rangers and things couldn't have gone any differently for him on Tuesday. The Angels jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning, then tacked on two runs in each of the fourth and fifth innings. Simon uncorked three wild pitches, walked four, allowed nine hits, and struck out two. The inconsistent right-hander sports an ugly 4.89 ERA with a 1.43 WHIP and a 93/53 K/BB ratio over 141 2/3 innings. Simon will have his hands full the next time he takes the mound, as he'll face the Blue Jays in Toronto. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:24 pm
  • Turner homers as Dodgers defeat the Reds
    Justin Turner went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's win against the Reds.

    Advice: Turner made it a 3-0 game when he drilled a two-run home run to left field off of John Lamb in the third inning. In 10 games since returning from the disabled list, Turner is hitting a feeble .167 (6-for-36). He was on a torrid pace, as shown by his triple-slash line, which still stands at .303/.363/.534 along with his 15 home runs and 51 RBI. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:06 pm

  • Morton gives up eight hits, five runs vs. MIA
    Charlie Morton allowed eight hits and five runs -- four earned -- over 5 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: Morton was solid early but fell apart late, allowing runs in each of his last three innings worked. The big one was a three-run sixth inning that was marked by three RBI doubles. The loss was Morton's first in over a month, dropping him to 8-5 overall. The right-hander will carry a 4.20 ERA and 1.30 WHIP into Sunday's contest against the Rockies. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:18 pm
  • Prince Fielder getting a breather Sunday
    Prince Fielder is not in the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Fielder was also off on Wednesday, as he's received an uncharacteristic two days off rest over the last week. Mike Napoli is in the designated hitter spot Sunday, with Mitch Moreland covering first base. Rotoworld.com Aug 23, 7:13 am
  • Syndergaard to have turn skipped soon
    Mets manager Terry Collins confirmed Friday that the club will skip Noah Syndergaard for one turn in the rotation soon.

    Advice: Matt Harvey is being skipped Sunday, and it will likely be next week when it's Syndergaard's turn. The club is simply keeping an eye on the young righty's workload, as his 130 1/3 innings this season is just just shy of last season's career-high 133 frames. The plan is to just skip Syndergaard once, although the Mets will go with a six-man rotation in September with Steven Matz (lat) expected back. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 2:54 pm
