  • Inciarte hits two-run single off Martinez
    Ender Inciarte went 2-for-3 with a two-run single in Thursday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Inciarte hit a two-run single against Carlos Martinez to tie the game at 3-3 in the second inning, though the Diamondbacks would go on to lose 5-3. The single extended his hitting streak to a modest six games. In addition to his usual stellar defense, Inciarte's done a nice job offensively with a .298/.332/.397 triple-slash, 36 RBI, 58 runs scored and 13 steals. Yesterday, 10:14 pm
  • Moss' two-run homer snaps 3-3 tie in fifth
    Brandon Moss went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer in Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Moss cracked his two-run shot off of Diamondbacks starter Rubby De La Rosa in the fifth inning, breaking a 3-3 tie. The Cardinals went on to win 5-3 as they completed a four-game sweep of the boys in the desert. In addition to the big home run, Moss also walked twice. Since joining the Cardinals on July 30, he's hit just .180/.317/.280 in an even 50 at-bats, though he does have 16 homers and 53 RBI to his good name for the season as a whole. Yesterday, 10:11 pm
  • Angel Pagan expected to return on Friday
    Angel Pagan (knee) is expected to be activated from the disabled list prior to Friday's game against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Pagan has been on the shelf since August 10 due to tendinitis in his right knee. The 34-year-old is hitting .258/.290/.308 with no homers and 26 RBI in his 102 contests this season. Yesterday, 8:29 pm
    15-Day DL
    7:15 pm vs StL
  • Stephen Piscotty not in Cardinals lineup
    Stephen Piscotty is not in the Cardinals starting lineup on Thursday.

    Advice: It's certainly a well-deserved day of rest for Piscotty who has started the team's last 29 contests. Piscotty has been on a tear offensively, slashing .316/.349/.538 with four homers and 20 RBI in 117 at-bats. Matt Carpenter will draw a rare start at first base in his absence. Yesterday, 5:41 pm
  • Adam Jones day-to-day, X-rays negative
    Adam Jones is listed as day-to-day after X-rays on his wrist came back negative on Thursday.

    Advice: Jones was removed from Thursday's game against the Royals after crashing into the outfield wall. While he is experiencing symptoms of whiplash, there were no fractures in his wrist and he isn't experiencing any concussion symptoms. He should return to the O's lineup at some point over the weekend. Yesterday, 5:15 pm
  • DeShields scores twice in win over Jays
    Delino DeShields went 2-for-2 with two runs scored in Thursday afternoon's win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: DeShields picked up the pair of singles. In his other three plate appearances, he drew walks. The rookie is hitting .259/.353/.374 with two homers, 59 runs scored and 22 steals this season. He's not hitting for much power, but the steal number is nice through the first 90 games of the 23-year-old's career. Yesterday, 2:52 pm
  • Giancarlo Stanton (hand) to take BP on Monday
    Giancarlo Stanton (hand) is expected to face live pitching in batting practice next Monday.

    Advice: Progress has been slow for Stanton, who has been sidelined since late June with a fractured hamate bone in his left hand. However, he finally appears to be headed in the right direction. The hope is that he could finally be back in the Marlins lineup by the end of next week. Yesterday, 2:09 pm
    15-Day DL
    4:05 pm @Was
  • Souza (hand) resumes swinging
    Steven Souza (hand) has resumed swinging.

    Advice: Souza was cleared after a follow X-ray on his fractured left hand showed healing. He's still aiming to return around mid-September. Yesterday, 1:43 pm
    15-Day DL
    4:10 pm vs KC
  • Adam Jones exits game with apparent injury
    Adam Jones left Thursday's game against the Royals with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Jones ran into the center field fence trying to track down a ball off the bat of Ben Zobrist in the first inning. He remained in the game initially, but Paul Janish replaced him as a pinch-hitter in the third. The O's should pass along an update soon. Yesterday, 1:35 pm
  • J.D. Martinez hits second triple of season
    J.D. Martinez went 1-for-3 with a triple in Thursday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Martinez's triple was the only extra-base hit the Tigers scraped together in the 2-0 loss. It was his second of the season and eighth three-bagger of his career. When he's not flashing his wheels, he's hitting .292/.353/.567 with 34 homers and 87 RBI. Martinez is in the midst of his most productive season at the major league level. Yesterday, 1:07 pm
  • Schumaker strikes out three times vs LAD
    Skip Schumaker went 1-for-4 with three strikeouts in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Schumaker fanned twice against Dodgers starter Zack Greinke, then added an additional whiff against reliever Chris Hatcher just for kicks and giggles. The 35-year-old outfield is hitting just .218/.291/.291. He's driven in 12, but is still waiting for that first homer of the season. There's no fantasy play here. Yesterday, 12:44 pm
  • Ethier picks up trio of hits in win
    Andre Ethier went 3-for-3 with three singles in Thursday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Ethier and Yasiel Puig were the only Dodgers to pick up multiple hits in the 1-0 win. He's rocked a productive season to this point and is slashing .296/.372/.483 with 12 homers and 39 RBI. That triple-slash, on the whole, is the best Ethier's posted since 2010. Yesterday, 12:41 pm
  • Rays put OF Jennings (knee) back on the DL
    Rays placed OF Desmond Jennings on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee bruise.

    Advice: Jennings banged his surgically-repaired knee on a slide into second base over the weekend and hasn't felt right since. We might not see him again this season. Jennings, 28, will be arbitration eligible for the second time this winter after earning $3.1 million in 2015. He has appeared in only 28 games. Yesterday, 12:29 pm
    15-Day DL
    4:10 pm vs KC
  • Pagan (knee) not in Giants' lineup Thursday
    Angel Pagan (knee) is not in the Giants' lineup Thursday.

    Advice: Pagan took an early flight from Omaha to San Francisco on Thursday morning and will probably be given a full day of rest before returning to the Giants' active roster on Friday. Juan Perez is in center field in Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Cubs. Pagan has been on the disabled list since August 10. Yesterday, 10:54 am
    15-Day DL
    7:15 pm vs StL
  • Grant Green (knee) back in Angels' lineup
    Grant Green (knee) is back in the Angels' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Tigers.

    Advice: Green sat out Wednesday after tweaking his right knee on Tuesday night, but it was obviously nothing major. He'll start at second base and bat ninth in Detroit. Green is filling in as a starter for the Halos with Johnny Giavotella (illness) sidelined indefinitely. Yesterday, 8:06 am
  • Jennings (knee) could be headed back to DL
    Desmond Jennings (knee) could be headed back to the disabled list.

    Advice: Jennings banged his surgically-repaired left knee on a slide into second base over the weekend and aggravated it again Tuesday while running the bases. He has already missed 3 1/2 months this season to left knee troubles. The 28-year-old outfielder is shaping up to be a massive disappointment in 2015 and will be an interesting arbitration case heading into 2016. Yesterday, 5:49 am
    15-Day DL
    4:10 pm vs KC
  • Aoki homers to help defeat Cubs
    Nori Aoki went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's win over the Cubs.

    Advice: Aoki went ya-ya with a solo home run to lead off the bottom of the first inning. It would be his only hit of the game. He recently landed on the concussion list after being hit in the helmet by a Jake Arrieta pitch, but the Giants brought him back last Thursday and he's since returned to his power-hitting ways. Aoki's slashing .296/.360/.387 with five homers, 39 runs scored and 13 steals this season. Wednesday, 10:27 pm
    7:15 pm vs StL
  • Shin-Soo Choo goes 3-for-5 against Jays
    Shin-Soo Choo finished 3-for-5 with two RBI Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Choo isn't just batting .301 this month, but he's walked 17 times and gotten hit by four pitches, giving him a .457 OBP. Unfortunately, he doesn't really run much any longer and he's not racking up RBI, so he's not nearly the fantasy outfielder he used to be. Wednesday, 9:04 pm
  • Martinez blasts 34th homer as Tigers top LAA
    J.D. Martinez blasted his 34th home run of the season, finishing 2-for-4 in Wednesday's victory over the Angels.

    Advice: Martinez led off the fourth inning with a double but was stranded. In the fifth, he made it a four-run frame when he drove a Hector Santiago pitch to left field for a two-run round-tripper. Along with 34 homers, Martinez has plated 87 runs while batting .291/.353/.564 in what has been a tremendous follow-up to his breakout in 2014. Wednesday, 7:17 pm
  • Pagan (knee) set to be activated Thursday
    Angel Pagan (knee) will play in a final rehab game Wednesday before being activated on Thursday.

    Advice: Pagan has been on a rehab assignment since Sunday and the reports have obviously been good. The outfielder's return will be a boost to the Giants, who have lost five of their last six games heading into Wednesday's contest against the Cubs. The 34-year-old is hitting .258/.290/.308 in 102 games this year. Wednesday, 5:19 pm
    15-Day DL
    7:15 pm vs StL
  • Desmond Jennings (knee) not in lineup Wed.
    Desmond Jennings (knee) is not in the Rays' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Jennings tweaked his surgically-repaired left knee over the weekend and had to leave Tuesday game after it swelled up on him. It's not viewed as a major setback. Grady Sizemore is in left field and Daniel Nava is in right for the Rays Wednesday. Wednesday, 12:57 pm
    15-Day DL
    4:10 pm vs KC
  • Grant Green (knee) not in lineup Wednesday
    Grant Green (knee) is not in the Angels' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Green is sitting out after tweaking his right knee Tuesday. He's considered day-to-day. Ryan Jackson is handling second base in his place. Wednesday, 12:53 pm
  • DeShields homers, steals base against Jays
    Delino DeShields went 2-for-5 with a home run and a stolen base in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: The homer was much more rare than the stolen base, as it was just DeShields' second of the year. He's now swiped 22 bases on the season. DeShields is hitting .257/.347/.373 in his rookie campaign. Tuesday, 9:07 pm
  • Grant Green (knee) hopes to play Wednesday
    Grant Green said that an MRI on his right knee showed just a "tweak."

    Advice: We presume that means he has no structural damage, as Green is hoping to be back in the lineup on Wednesday. He's been filling in at second base for Johnny Giavotella (illness). Tuesday, 8:35 pm
  • Desmond Jennings leaves with bruised knee
    Desmond Jennings left Tuesday's game against the Twins with a bruised left knee.

    Advice: How Jennings was hurt wasn't obvious, but the fact that it's the same knee that caused him to miss nearly four months of action this season is obviously concerning. The Rays should have more on his status after the game. Tuesday, 6:46 pm
    15-Day DL
    4:10 pm vs KC
  • Grant Green leaves game with knee injury
    Grant Green left Tuesday's game against the Tigers with right knee discomfort.

    Advice: It's not clear how he was hurt, but the Angels should provide more on Green's status after the game. Green has been starting at second base with Johnny Giavotella (illness) sidelined. Tuesday, 5:57 pm
  • Grant Green exits with undisclosed injury
    Grant Green left Tuesday's game against the Tigers with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: It's unclear what happened, but Green was pinch-hit for in the top of the fourth inning. The Angels are relying on Green as their regular second baseman with Johnny Giavotella (illness) sidelined, so losing him wouldn't be ideal. Tuesday, 5:39 pm
  • Stanton (hand) aims for return in 10 days
    Giancarlo Stanton (hand) expects to be back with the Marlins in about a week and a half.

    Advice: The estimate needs to be taken with a grain of salt. Stanton previously said that he hoped to be back by September 1, but he recently had to skip a day of hitting live pitching due to pain in his wrist. Still, he appears determined to return in September and go into the offseason with some peace of mind. Tuesday, 1:04 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Jones homer gives early lead, but O's lose
    Adam Jones went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Jones creamed a Kris Medlen offering to left-center in the first inning, but it was a lead the Orioles would wind up losing. The O's have dropped five games in a row now, but it isn't the outfielder's fault. Jones is batting .285/.324/.507 with 24 home runs and 66 RBI. Monday, 8:04 pm
  • Martinez hits 3-run homer but the Tigers lose
    J.D. Martinez doubled and hit a three-run home run across five at-bats in Monday's loss to the Reds.

    Advice: Martinez started the scoring, plating three with a home run off of Keyvius Sampson in the top of the first inning. It was a lead the Tigers would hold until deflating in a 10-run bottom of the sixth. Martinez has gone yard 33 times this season, knocking in 84 runs while batting .288/.350/.554. It has truly been a remarkable year for the Astros castoff. Monday, 7:49 pm
  • Angels recall utility man Grant Green
    Angels recalled INF/OF Grant Green from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Nick Tropeano was sent down in the corresponding roster move. The Angels needed infield depth with Jonny Giavotella dealing with an illness. Green has only logged 21 at-bats in the big leagues this year, hitting .238 with two RBI. He'll start at second base and bat ninth Saturday against the Blue Jays. Saturday, 3:36 pm
  • Angel Pagan to begin rehab assignment Sunday
    Angel Pagan (knee) will begin a minor league rehab assignment on Sunday.

    Advice: He has seen steady improvement in his right knee in recent days and is trending toward a return to the Giants lineup before the end of the month. The oft-injured outfielder is hitting .258/.290/.308 with no homers and 26 RBI in 102 games this season. Saturday, 11:33 am
    15-Day DL
    7:15 pm vs StL
  • Desmond Jennings hits first home run
    Desmond Jennings went 2-for-4 and hit his first homer of the year Friday as the Rays beat the A's 2-1.

    Advice: Jennings is 10-for-28 since coming off the disabled list a week ago. Still, he probably won't be anything more than a fringy mixed-league outfielder the rest of the way unless he resumes stealing bases, something that seems unlikely after he missed all that time following knee surgery. Friday, 10:24 pm
    15-Day DL
    4:10 pm vs KC
  • Stanton (hand) skips hitting day due to pain
    Giancarlo Stanton (hand) had to skip a day of hitting against live pitching this week due to ongoing pain.

    Advice: It's not an encouraging development, although Stanton is still hoping to be activated from the disabled list around September 1. "It's just wrist weakness. Not the actual surgical part; the impact on my incision area is fine. It's the weakness in my wrist in turning over," Stanton said. "It's a little different than [with a] muscle; at 75 percent of a muscle you can jog and still do some functional things. But I need 100 percent of my wrist. I can't go up and [face] 95 miles per hour and just have 75 percent of my wrist. I need all of that to turn it over." Friday, 8:31 am
    15-Day DL
    4:05 pm @Was
  • Stanton (hand) hopes to return by Sept. 1
    Giancarlo Stanton (hand) hopes to be back with the Marlins by September 1.

    Advice: Stanton hit off a pitching machine and against live pitching on Monday, but he's still feeling some minor discomfort in his hand, so it's unclear when he'll be ready for game action. The 25-year-old has missed almost two months following hamate bone surgery. Thursday, 1:54 pm
    15-Day DL
    4:05 pm @Was
  • Giants activate Nori Aoki from concussion DL
    Giants activated OF Nori Aoki from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Aoki gets the go-ahead just as the Giants lose Hunter Pence to an oblique injury. Aoki spent seven days on the concussion disabled list after getting struck in the helmet by a Jake Arrieta pitch. He returns Thursday to a cool .302 batting average and .368 OBP. Thursday, 12:12 pm
    7:15 pm vs StL
  • Jones homers, Orioles defeat the Mets
    Adam Jones went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, and a solo home run as the Orioles walked off 5-4 winners over the Mets on Wednesday.

    Advice: Jones led off the fourth inning with a double and came around to score later in the frame to cut the Mets' lead to 2-1. In the seventh, he drilled a solo home run against Hansel Robles to tie the game up at four apiece. Jones has gone yard six times in his last nine games, giving him 23 on the season along with 64 RBI and a .283/.323/.508 batting line. Wednesday, 7:22 pm
  • Martinez homers, Tigers defeat the Cubs
    J.D. Martinez went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a sacrifice fly in Tuesday's win against the Cubs.

    Advice: Martinez pushed the Tigers' lead to 3-0 in the first inning when he drilled a Jason Hammel pitch over the fence in center field. Now with 31 home runs, he's on pace to finish the season with 42 -- quite an impressive feat after setting a career-high with 23 last year. Martinez has also knocked in 79 runs while batting .288/.349/.553. Tuesday, 11:11 pm
  • Piscotty notches first stolen base vs. Giants
    Stephen Piscotty went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in a loss to the Giants on Tuesday.

    Advice: Piscotty has hits in four straight games as he remains one of the only Cardinals hitters producing much offense recently. The stolen base was the first for Piscotty in his career. The outfielder is hitting .337/.368/.494 with 11 runs and 11 RBI through his first 26 games. Tuesday, 10:18 pm
