  • Padres recall Jason Lane for Monday start
    Padres recalled LHP Jason Lane from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Lane will make a spot start for the Padres on Monday afternoon against the Braves. The former outfielder tossed 4 1/3 scoreless innings of relief for San Diego earlier this season, but he is not a good fantasy option. Rotoworld.com

  • Cashner (shoulder) throws a bullpen session
    Andrew Cashner (shoulder) threw a 31-pitch bullpen session on Sunday afternoon at Turner Field.

    Advice: "I kinda surprised myself with my command," Cashner said after the workout. "It was coming out good." He threw only fastballs and changeups, and is still a long way from returning to the Padres' starting rotation. But it was a significant step in the right direction. The right-hander has been out since late June with a shoulder injury. Rotoworld.com

  • Mike Adams (shoulder) throws off mound soon
    Mike Adams (shoulder) hopes to begin throwing off a mound during the first week of August.

    Advice: Adams, who's been out since June 7 with fraying in his right shoulder labrum, was recently transferred to the 60-day disabled list. The right-hander could return in late August if he's able to avoid setbacks, but he admitted to reporters Sunday that he won't be 100 percent. Adams holds a $6 million club option for next season.

  • Pirates interested in Rockies' LaTroy Hawkins
    According to MLB.com's Thomas Harding, the Pirates have interest in Rockies closer LaTroy Hawkins.

    Advice: The Bucs are looking for some easy and inexpensive ways to upgrade their bullpen, and the 41-year-old Hawkins fits that mold. He has posted a 3.09 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in 35 innings this season out of the Colorado bullpen on a salary of just $2.25 million. Hawkins also carries a $2.25 million club option for the 2015 campaign.

  • Mike Mikolas hammered in loss to A's Sunday
    Mike Mikolas was hammered in a losing effort against the Athletics on Sunday, surrendering seven runs on seven hits over his 4 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Mikolas also issued four free passes while walking one. The A's jumped on him with a five-run outburst in the second inning then chased him after adding on another pair in the fifth. He now owns a horrifying 8.54 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 16/9 K/BB ratio over 26 1/3 innings on the year. If he continues to struggle, he may not sustain his spot in the Rangers rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Rosenthal earns 32nd save in shutout of Cubs
    Trevor Rosenthal pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Cubs on Sunday to earn his 32nd save.

    Advice: Rosenthal allowed a two-out single to Chris Coghlan but struck out Welington Castillo to end it, the second straight game Castillo was Rosenthal's game-ending strikeout victim. His 32 saves are most in the majors, and he's allowed just one run in his last eight appearances to lower his ERA to 3.33. Rotoworld.com

  • Perkins escapes jam to close out White Sox
    Glen Perkins worked into and out of trouble Sunday, stranding the bases loaded to secure the Twins' 4-3 win over the White Sox.

    Advice: Perkins allowed consecutive hits to Jose Abreu and Paul Konerko to lead off the ninth inning, and he loaded the base with one out. The left-hander got a big strikeout of Alejandro De Aza for the second out, and he induced a fly ball from Gordon Beckham to finish the game. It wasn't pretty, but Perkins now has 25 saves to go with a 2.64 ERA and 1.11 WHIP on the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Carroll allows one run over six against Twins
    Scott Carroll limited the Twins to four hits and one run over six innings but settled for a no-decision on Sunday.

    Advice: Carroll had a nice bounce back from allowing five runs in his last start. Unfortunately for the 29-year-old, his bullpen couldn't hold the lead. Carroll struck out four while walking one. Carroll owns a 4.29 ERA and 1.48 WHIP through 79 2/3 innings, and he'll get a shot at the Twins again when they square off on Saturday. Rotoworld.com

  • Roberto Hernandez picks up fifth win
    Roberto Hernandez held the Diamondbacks to two runs over seven innings in Sunday's 4-2 victory.

    Advice: The sinkerballer registered just one strikeout, but he yielded only four hits and didn't walk a batter, requiring just 75 pitches to complete the seven frames. Hernandez holds a 3.65 ERA since the beginning of May, though it's come along with a 46/43 K/BB ratio. He'll take on the Nationals on the road in his next outing. Rotoworld.com

  • Jonathan Papelbon converts 25th save
    Jonathan Papelbon gave up a pair of hits but hung in there to convert his 25th save of the season in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Papelbon yielded a leadoff single to David Peralta and a one-out single to Miguel Montero, but he got a strikeout of Paul Goldschmidt and induced a double-play ball from Martin Prado to end it. The fiery reliever boasts a 1.83 ERA and has converted 25 of 28 save chances this season. It's possible he could change teams before the trade deadline. Rotoworld.com

  • Jason Lane to start for Padres Monday
    Jason Lane will be called up to start on Monday against the Braves.

    Advice: It's expected to just be a spot start, as the anticipation is that Ian Kennedy (oblique) will only miss one turn. A former outfielder, Lane struck out four in 4 1/3 scoreless relief innings with the Padres earlier this season. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Boone Logan ready for rehab assignment
    Boone Logan (diverticulitis) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Colorado Springs on Monday.

    Advice: Logan hasn't pitched since before the All-Star break due to diverticulitis, which is an inflamed Colon. He's better now, though, and should rejoin the Rockies' bullpen later this week if all goes well. Rotoworld.com

    Josh Zeid (foot) will undergo an MRI on Monday.

    Advice: Zeid was placed on the disabled list Saturday with what's being called bilateral sesamoiditis in his left foot, but the Astros want to get a better look at the injury. Consider him out indefinitely for now. Rotoworld.com

  • Esmil Rogers designated for assignment
    Blue Jays designated RHP Esmil Rogers for assignment.

    Advice: Rogers was only up with the big club for a few days and didn't appear in a game. He cleared waivers the last time he was designated for assignment and should do so again, though he'll have the option of declaring free agency. Rotoworld.com

  • Cashner set to throw bullpen session on Sun.
    Andrew Cashner (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session on Sunday.

    Advice: Cashner has been out since June 23 because of a right shoulder injury. Although he now seems to progressing in the right direction, he'll most likely miss the majority of August. Sunday's bullpen session will be his first since he landed on the disabled list. Rotoworld.com

  • Astros place RHP Josh Zeid on disabled list
    Astros placed RHP Josh Zeid on the disabled list Saturday due to a left foot injury.

    Advice: The official diagnosis is bilateral sesamoiditis, a painful inflammation of the sesamoid bones. Zeid owns an ugly 6.97 ERA and a 1.79 WHIP in 20 2/3 innings of relief this season for the Astros. It's not clear how long he will be sidelined. Rotoworld.com

  • Market for Jonathan Papelbon 'seems light'
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the trade market for Jonathan Papelbon "seems light, if existent."

    Advice: Papelbon has had a fine season, posting a 1.91 ERA while saving 24 games in 28 chances, but Heyman says "there seemingly isn't strong interest," especially with the Angels and Tigers having already acquired relievers. The Phillies are prepared to eat a portion of the $18 million guaranteed to Papelbon through the end of next season, but he also has a vesting option for 2016, something that Heyman notes "can be sticky for acquiring teams."

  • Hawkins struggles in non-save situation Wed.
    LaTroy Hawkins allowed two runs and stranded the bases loaded in a non-save situation against the Nationals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Hawkins entered the game with a four-run lead and got two quick outs before the Nationals strung together four straight hits. A fielding error loaded the bases with the winning run at first, but Ian Desmond struck out to end the threat. Hawkins has a 3.09 ERA after Wednesday's outing, and the struggles of Rex Brothers and Adam Ottavino have given the 41-year-old some job protection in his hold on the Rockies' closer role.

  • Glen Perkins nails down 24th save
    Glen Perkins notched his 24th save of the season with a scoreless inning in Wednesday's win over the Indians.

    Advice: Carlos Santana smacked a double off the left field wall to lead off the inning, but Perkins retired the side with a flyout and pair of strikeouts to end the threat. The left-hander has been scored upon in just one of his last 10 appearances to lower his ERA to 2.76. Rotoworld.com

  • Hernandez takes no-decision in 14-inning loss
    Roberto Hernandez got a no-decision, allowing three runs in 5 2/3 innings, as the Phillies lost 9-6 in 14 innings to the Giants on Tuesday.

    Advice: Hernandez was making his first start since July 9. He out-dueled Giants starter Yusmeiro Petit, but the Phillies' bullpen could not hold the lead. Hernandez allowed five hits, walked three, and struck out only one in the effort. He has had an uninspiring season, carrying a 4.25 ERA, 1.44 WHIP, and 71/54 K/BB ratio. Hernandez matches up next against the D'Backs at home on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • Carroll touched for 11 hits, five runs vs. KC
    Scott Carroll was roughed up for 11 hits and five runs over five innings in a loss to the Royals on Tuesday.

    Advice: The right-hander, who had allowed just three hits and zero runs over his past two starts combined, gave up five extra-base hits, including a home run, in the loss. He also walked two and struck out three. Carroll owns a 4.52 ERA and 1.53 WHIP through 73 2/3 innings, and he's a non-factor for fantasy purposes going forward. Rotoworld.com
