  • 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

  • Miguel Cabrera doubles twice in loss
    Miguel Cabrera went 4-for-5 with two doubles Wednesday in the loss to the Twins.

    Advice: He finally made an out in the ninth when he flew out to the warning track. Cabrera's doubles were the Tigers' only extra-base hits of the night. He now has 48 doubles, just two shy of his career high from way back in 2005. Rotoworld.com

  • Longoria homers again, but Rays fall to Yanks
    Evan Longoria went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Longoria broke a scoreless tie in the fourth with a solo home run off of Brandon McCarthy, and brought the Rays back within one run with an RBI ground out in the bottom of the sixth, but it wasn't enough. Longoria now has five home runs in September, tying his season-high for any one month. He has 22 on the season along with 90 RBI and a .252/.320/.407 line. Rotoworld.com

  • Gosselin logs 3 hits at top of order in a win
    Phil Gosselin went 3-for-4 and scored a run in Wednesday's victory against the Nationals.

    Advice: Gosselin was the only Brave to register multiple hits on the evening. He has multiple hits in three out of his last four ballgames, in fact, and is slashing a respectable .309/.343/.381 in 103 plate appearances this season -- certainly an upgrade over Dan Uggla. Rotoworld.com

  • Brewers plan to pick up option on 3B Ramirez
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Brewers intend to exercise their half of Aramis Ramirez's $14 million option for 2015.

    Advice: Of course, Ramirez could always turn down his portion of the option and attempt to find a multi-year deal. The 36-year-old has been productive when healthy this season, batting .295/.341/.447 with 15 home runs and 65 RBI over 123 games. Rotoworld.com

  • Zimmerman (hammy) plays five sim. innings
    Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) played five innings of defense in a simulated game Wednesday at the Nationals' spring training complex in Viera, Florida.

    Advice: Zimmerman spent three of those innings at first base and the other two at third, reporting no issues with his hamstring. He's scheduled to DH on Thursday and will then play seven innings of left field on Friday. The Nationals are hoping to have him back on their active roster in some capacity for the final week of the regular season (and then into the playoffs). Rotoworld.com

    Eduardo Escobar (shoulder) is not in the Twins' starting lineup Wednesday night versus Detroit.

  • Castellanos (foot) back in Tigers lineup Wed.
    Nick Castellanos (foot) is back in the Tigers' starting lineup Wednesday against the Twins.

    Advice: Castellanos was a late scratch Tuesday after fouling a ball off his left foot in his final at-bat on Monday. It was never a serious concern. The 22-year-old third baseman is batting .266/.313/.405 with 10 home runs and 60 RBI in 137 games this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Garin Cecchini recalled from Triple-A
    Red Sox recalled 3B Garin Cecchini from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Cecchini was up briefly with the big club earlier this season but spent almost all of the year at Pawtucket, batting just .263/.341/.371 with seven homers and 11 steals over 114 games. He'll be used off the bench for the rest of the month. 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

  • Beltre has 2 doubles, 3 hits total, in win
    Adrian Beltre went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles and a run scored in a 6-3 win versus the A's on Tuesday.

    Advice: Beltre had gone hitless (0-for-6) in his previous two games. The 35-year-old has only hit one homer since August 11. He is slashing .325/.387/.493 and is on pace for 19 homers and 71 RBI. That'll be his lowest home run total since 2009. Rotoworld.com

  • Gillaspie's three-run triple crushes Royals
    Conor Gillaspie hit a three-run triple in the seventh inning, and the White Sox held on to beat the Royals 7-5 on Tuesday.

    Advice: With one out and runners on the corners, the Royals opted to walk Jose Abreu to bring up Gillaspie. The 27-year-old made them pay for that decision, ripping a triple into the gap to clear the bases and give the White Sox the lead. The triple was surprisingly his fifth of the season, giving him 57 RBI. Gillaspie finished 2-for-5 in the game to raise his season line to a strong .293/.345/.433. Rotoworld.com

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

    Advice: Escobar was injured while making a diving stop at shortstop. He's still being looked at by trainers, so it's not clear how much time he might miss. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Castellanos scratched with sore foot
    Nick Castellanos was a late scratch from Tuesday's lineup due to a sore left foot.

    Advice: Castellanos fouled a ball off the foot in his final at-bat Monday and is still feeling the after effects. Consider him day-to-day. Don Kelly took Castellanos' spot at third base Tuesday, with Rajai Davis entering the lineup in center field. Rotoworld.com

  • Miguel Cabrera hits 23rd homer in Tigers' win
    Torii Hunter and Miguel Cabrera hit back-to-back homers in the top of the ninth as the Tigers beat the Twins 8-6 on Monday.

    Advice: The Tigers threw away a 6-0 lead before Hunter and Cabrera powered them back on top off Casey Fein. Cabrera ended up 3-for-5 with three runs scored, collecting his 23rd homer and his 46th double. He's hitting .436 with six homers and 11 RBI in 55 at-bats this month. Rotoworld.com

    Steve Tolleson had to leave Monday's game against the Orioles after being hit on the right wrist with a foul ball.

  • Jake Lamb nursing quad ailment
    Jake Lamb isn't in the Diamondbacks' lineup for the third straight day Monday due to a quad injury.

    Advice: It doesn't at this point appear to be a big concern, but it's also not clear when Lamb might be ready to play again. He's hit just .227/.274/.386 in his first 95 plate appearances with the D'Backs but does have three homers. Aaron Hill is at third base Monday. Rotoworld.com

  • Zimmerman (hammy) set for simulated game
    Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) went through a full workout Monday in Viera, Florida and is slated to play three innings at first base Tuesday in a simulated game.

    Advice: He's expected to progress to five innings on Wednesday and serve as a DH on Thursday before being reevaluated. Zimmerman has been out since late July with a Grade 3 hamstring strain, but the Nationals are hoping to get him back at some point next week. Rotoworld.com

  • Evan Longoria blasts 21st homer in loss
    Evan Longoria blasted his 21st home run of the season, but it wasn't enough to overcome the Blue Jays on Saturday in Toronto.

    Advice: Longoria's solo shot off R.A. Dickey tied the score at 3-3 to begin the sixth inning, but that wound up being the extent of the Rays offensive output for the afternoon. He also doubled, finishing the afternoon 2-for-4 to raise his season slash to .252/.320/.406 to go along with 87 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Zimmerman to face live pitching on Monday
    Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) is slated to face live pitching in the instructional league in Viera on Monday.

    Advice: Zimmerman was able to run at 60 percent on Friday and continues to make progress toward a return to the Nationals lineup. Even is he returns at some point next week though, he's only expected to see sporadic playing time down the stretch so he isn't a strong option in most mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Zimmerman (hamstring) runs at 60 percent
    Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) did some running at about 60 percent on Friday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's ran since being placed on the disabled list back in late July. Zimmerman did starts and stops while running and also did some hitting on the field. The next step for the third baseman will be to head to the Nationals' spring training complex on Sunday to get in some live batting practice. Zimmerman could conceivably be activated at some point next week, but the Nats plan to be careful with his playing time. Rotoworld.com

  • Jake Lamb hits third homer since callup
    Jake Lamb hit his third homer since being called up in Thursday's loss to the Giants.

    Advice: The blast to dead center off Santiago Casilla was pretty impressive. Lamb, though, is still struggling for the most part, with a .215 average and a 30/6 K/BB ratio in 84 at-bats. The Diamondbacks will keep running him out there, but if he does show rapid improvement, they may consider shifting Aaron Hill to third base next year. Rotoworld.com

  • Zimmerman to go to instructional league soon
    Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) is tentatively scheduled to go to the instructional league in Viera, Florida next week.

    Advice: Zimmerman, out since late July with a Grade 3 hamstring strain, resumed taking batting practice earlier this week. Running at full speed will be the real test for his hamstring, but assuming no setbacks, he'll get eased into game action in Florida before rejoining the Nationals. He could make it back during the final week of the regular season, but fantasy owners obviously shouldn't be counting on him at this point. 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

  • 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

    Adrian Beltre went 3-for-3 with a home run and two runs scored in a loss to the Angels on Tuesday.

    Advice: Beltre also walked in the game, reaching base in all four plate appearances. The solo home run was just his 18th of the season and his first since August 11. The 35-year-old is batting .327/.389/.499 but is headed for his lowest home run output since 2009. Rotoworld.com

  • Zimmerman (hamstring) takes BP for first time
    Ryan Zimmerman took batting practice Tuesday for the first time since straining his hamstring.

    Advice: And he looked good, even hitting a ball over the batter's eye in left-center field at Nationals Park. But the major hurdle for Zimmerman is going to be running at full speed and he acknowledged to reporters Tuesday that he's not close to doing that. If he returns before the end of the regular season, it'll likely be in the final week. Rotoworld.com

  • Zim unlikely to return before final week
    Mark Zuckerman of NatsInsider.com writes that the odds of Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) returning before the final week of the season "appear slim."

    Advice: That's assuming he's not cleared for full-out running in the next few days, which is unlikely. Zimmerman remains limited to taking light grounders, jogging and throwing and it's not clear when he'll be allowed to swing a bat and run with no restrictions. Nationals manager Matt Williams has also indicated that Zim might not be an everyday player if he does make it back. Fantasy owners don't need to be hanging on to him. Rotoworld.com

  • Miguel Cabrera (ankle) at DH for Tigers Mon.
    Miguel Cabrera is serving as the Tigers' designated hitter on Monday against the Royals.

    Advice: Tigers manager Brad Ausmus acknowledged Sunday night that Cabrera has bone spurs in his right ankle, but that was just after Cabrera had led Detroit to a 6-1 victory over the Giants with a homer and three RBI. Cabrera is going to continue playing through the discomfort before considering surgical options this winter. Rotoworld.com

  • Cabrera homers, plates three to lead Tigers
    Miguel Cabrera homered and drove home three runs, leading the Tigers to a 6-1 victory over the Giants on Sunday.

    Advice: The much-needed victory allowed the Tigers to salvage one game from the three-game weekend set. Cabrera took opposing starter Tim Hudson deep for a two-run homer in the third inning and added on an RBI single in the seventh. Battling through the pain of bone spurs in his ankle, he has been on fire at the dish this week, hitting .500 (15-for-30) with five homers and nine RBI in his last seven games. Rotoworld.com
