  • Bryan Mitchell activated from disabled list
    Yankees activated RHP Bryan Mitchell from the 7-day concussion disabled list.

    Advice: Mitchell suffered a concussion and a small nasal fracture when he was hit by a comebacker on August 17, but he's thrown off a mound a couple times in recent days and is ready to go. He'll work in relief for now but could eventually be a candidate to get a start. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:27 am
  • Banuelos (elbow) begins rehab assignment
    Manny Banuelos (elbow) tossed two scoreless innings in his first rehab start with Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.

    Advice: Banuelos walked two and didn't recorded any strikeouts, but he yielded just one hit. The left-hander will make at least a couple more rehab start before hopefully rejoining the Braves' rotation at some point in September. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:07 am

  • Martinez tosses quality start vs Diamondbacks
    Carlos Martinez posted a quality start in Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks, yielding three runs on four hits over six innings.

    Advice: While Martinez wasn't getting rocked--all three runs scored in the second inning, on a pair of RBI singles--he had already thrown 103 pitches by the close of the sixth. These kinds of fine-but-unspectacular outings have slowly become the norm for the 23-year-old right-hander, who has now allowed at least three runs in each of his last six starts. He owns a 2.91 ERA and 1.27 WHIP, numbers he'll take into a home start against the Nationals in his next scheduled outing. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:07 pm
  • Cards score five against De La Rosa
    Jorge De La Rosa struggled in Thursday's loss to the Cardinals, allowing five runs on five hits over five innings.

    Advice: In what was a sub-par start, De La Rosa walked four and allowed two home runs over just five innings. Tony Cruz took the 26-year-old right-hander yard for a solo shot in the second inning, while Brandon Moss cranked a two-run bomb in the fifth inning. The loss was De La Rosa's first since the All-Star Break. He'll look to rebound from this start when he takes his 4.46 ERA and 1.31 WHIP into a Tuesday afternoon road showdown with the Rockies.

  • Drew Smyly struggles threw 4 1/3 innings
    Drew Smyly yielded four runs -- three earned -- in 4 1/3 innings Thursday in a no-decision against the Twins.

    Advice: Smyly got into trouble every inning tonight, and the damage could have been more severe if Brandon Gomes hadn't induced an inning-ending double play from Torii Hunter immediately after taking over in the fifth. The subpar outing leaves him with a 5.14 ERA in three starts since he came off the DL. He's not a mixed-league option in a road start against the Orioles next time out. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:16 pm
  • Bud Norris faces one batter
    Bud Norris, pitching with an adductor strain, struck out the only batter he faced Thursday against the Nationals.

    Advice: It's surprising the Padres didn't just put Norris on the DL, considering that he hasn't looked very good at all since joining the team a couple of weeks ago. Still, he wants to pitch through the injury. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:28 pm
  • Jarred Cosart allows four runs in rehab start
    Jarred Cosart allowed four runs on five hits over five innings of work Thursday with High-A Jupiter.

    Advice: Cosart surrendered five hits on the night while walking one and striking out four. He has been sidelined since early July with an inner-ear disorder, but is finally making tangible strides toward a return to the big league rotation. He should be ready to roll at some point in early September. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:44 pm

  • Chris Tillman struggles in loss to Royals
    Chris Tillman struggled in Thursday's loss to the Royals, surrendering four runs on nine hits over his six frames.

    Advice: Tillman walked one while striking out one on the afternoon. After three scoreless innings to begin the ballgame, the Royals scratched out runs in each of the next three frames, including a solo homer by Pablo Orlando. While he has been much better in the second half of the season, Tillman will still carry a troublesome 4.58 ERA and 1.33 WHIP into Tuesday's matchup against the Rays. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:13 pm
  • Bumgarner racks up 12 strikeouts in victory
    Madison Bumgarner delivered another dazzling performance in Thursday's victory over the Cubs, racking up 12 strikeouts over six innings of one-run ball.

    Advice: The All-Star southpaw allowed just two hits and a pair of walks on the afternoon. He is in the midst of another brilliant season, compiling a 2.97 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 192/30 K/BB ratio over 175 2/3 innings. He'll head in search of his 17th victory when he does battle against the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:08 pm
  • Gallardo allows three hits in 5 1/3 innings
    Yovani Gallardo effectively limited the Blue Jays in Thursday's win, hurling 5 1/3 innings of shutout baseball.

    Advice: Gallardo allowed a mere three hits while striking out two and walking three. He had thrown 101 pitches (58 strikes) at the time he was relieved of duty with an out in the sixth. The shutout effort lowered his ERA to 3.14. His 1.34 WHIP is slightly less shiny, but it's still been a respectable season for the 29-year-old right-hander. A road date with the Padres awaits Gallardo next time he toes the rubber. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:51 pm
  • Estrada strikes out six over six innings
    Marco Estrada pitched effectively in Thursday's loss to the Rangers, yielding one run on four hits over six innings.

    Advice: Estrada struck out six and walked three while scattering four hits over his six innings of work. Mitch Moreland burned him for an RBI single in the first for the only run he allowed in the game. The right-hander has pitched to a 3.19 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 101/43 K/BB ratio over 129 2/3 innings. Up next on his schedule, a home start against the Indians. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:50 pm
  • Cosart (ear) to make rehab start
    Jarred Cosart (ear) is scheduled to start Thursday with High-A Jupiter and throw 60-65 pitches.

    Advice: Cosart has been shut down since having a setback with an inner-ear disorder in July. The Marlins are hoping to get him back in their rotation in September. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:06 pm

  • Fernandez (biceps) has 'wow' bullpen session
    Marlins manager Dan Jennings said Jose Fernandez (biceps) had a "wow" bullpen session Thursday.

    Advice: Good news for Fernandez, who landed on the disabled list earlier this month with a right biceps strain. There's no sense of urgency to rush him back into action, but the hope is that he'll be ready to rejoin the Marlins' rotation by mid-September. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:31 pm

  • Greinke flummoxes Reds with nine strikeouts
    Zack Greinke poured in a strong start in Thursday's 1-0 win over the Reds, tossing seven shutout innings.

    Advice: Greinke scattered four hits while striking out nine and walking two. None of the hits went for extra-bases. With his strong seven innings, he improved to 14-3 on the season. He backs that record with a 1.61 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 164/31 K/BB ratio across 179 1/3 innings. A home start against the in-state rival Giants crops up next on Greinke's schedule. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:39 pm
  • Corbin limits Cards to one run in six innings
    Patrick Corbin pitched well in a Wednesday no-decision against the Cardinals, allowing one run on three hits over six innings.

    Advice: Corbin struck out seven and walked two on the evening, with a fifth-inning solo homer by Mark Reynolds representing the only run to score during the 26-year-old's time on the mound. Since returning from Tommy John surgery on July 5, he's pitched to a 3.78 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 50 innings, covering 10 starts. So long as he's giving the Diamondbacks innings, he'll continue to hold some value in mixed leagues. A road trip to Coors for a date with the Rockies crops up next on Corbin's schedule. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:27 pm
  • David Price strikes out eight Rangers
    David Price pitched six innings and allowed two runs Wednesday in a defeat of the Rangers.

    Advice: Price struck out eight in improving to 13-4 on the season. He's 4-0 with a 1.98 ERA in five starts for the Blue Jays. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:06 pm
  • Fish hope for Fernandez (biceps) in mid-Sept.
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Marlins are hoping to get Jose Fernandez (biceps) back in mid-September.

    Advice: Fernandez has yet to resume throwing after landing on the disabled list on August 8 with a right bicep strain. The Marlins don't have anything to play for at this point and will obviously proceed cautiously with their ace, but there's still hope that he'll make it back for a few late-season outings.

  • Bud Norris pitching through groin strain
    Padres interim manager Pat Murphy revealed Wednesday that Bud Norris has been pitching through "a bit of an adductor strain."

    Advice: Norris will be re-evaluated on Wednesday, so it sounds like he could be unavailable for a while. The righty holds a 7.71 ERA over his first seven appearances with the Padres. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:26 pm
  • Mitchell (head) throws simulated inning
    Bryan Mitchell (concussion) made a 30-pitch simulated appearance on Tuesday without issue.

    Advice: Mitchell is already eligible to return from the 7-day concussion disabled list and should be pretty close to official activation. The 24-year-old right-hander suffered a concussion and a small nasal fracture when he was hit by a comebacker on August 17. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:33 pm
  • Mitchell (concussion) to throw off mound
    Bryan Mitchell (concussion) will throw a bullpen session Sunday.

    Advice: Mitchell will then throw a live batting practice session later this week before being activated if all goes well. "You want him to get back on a mound," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "That’s the bottom line." Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:20 am
  • Tillman saddled with loss in quality start
    Chris Tillman pitched well in Saturday's loss to the Twins, allowing three runs on four hits over 6 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Tillman struck out six, walked two and allowed a singular run in the sixth, plus two more in the seventh. He holds a 4.51 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 91/47 K/BB ratio across 136 2/3 innings this season, but has allowed more than three runs just twice in his last 10 starts. Tillman's next scheduled outing is a road toughie against the Royals. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:43 pm
  • Greinke allows two solo homers in loss
    Zack Greinke took the loss in a 3-1 defeat at the hands of the Astros on Saturday, allowing three runs on three hits over seven innings.

    Advice: Greinke fanned five without walking a batter, but his strong start wasn't quite enough to prevent him from falling to a still fantastic 13-3. Two of the three runs came home on solo homers, with Luis Valbuena and Jose Altuve dinging him for solo shots in the second and sixth innings, respectively. Greinke remains a top NL Cy Young contender thanks to a 1.67 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 155/29 K/BB ratio through 172 1/3 innings. He'll look to return to the win column when he faces off with the Reds in a road start on Thursday afternoon. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:17 pm
  • Carlos Martinez allows three runs in loss
    Carlos Martinez allowed three earned runs over 6 1/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Padres.

    Advice: And the wheels really came off after he left the game, with the Padres pouring in eight total runs on 12 total hits. Martinez gave up seven of those hits and walked one. He struck out six. Up next for the 23-year-old right-hander is another road start in Arizona. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:08 pm
  • Gallardo improves to 10-9 with win
    Yovani Gallardo posted a nice performance in Saturday's win over the Tigers, firing six innings of shutout baseball.

    Advice: Gallardo scattered eight hits while striking out four and walking one. While he's limited the runs in his last two starts, batters are seeing the ball well against him and have racked up 19 hits in Gallardo's last 11 1/3 innings. If he can't stop limiting the hits, his (currently nice) 3.25 ERA is eventually going to cave. As is, he'll take that number, plus a 1.35 WHIP into his next scheduled start, a home showdown with the Orioles. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:32 pm
  • David Price goes eight strong in win
    David Price pitched eight innings of two-run ball in a win over the Angels on Friday.

    Advice: Price moved to 3-0 with a 1.78 ERA in four starts as a member of the Blue Jays. It's the ninth time this year that he's pitched at least eight innings. Only Corey Kluber, with 10, has done it more frequently. Johnny Cueto is the lone other starter with as many as eight such outings. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:47 pm
  • Drew Smyly goes 5 2/3 scoreless in win
    Drew Smyly scattered seven hits over 5 2/3 scoreless innings to beat the A's Friday for his first win of the season.

    Advice: All seven hits were singles, and he didn't walk anyone. He did load the bases before coming out in the sixth, but Brandon Gomes was able to escape the jam. Smyly will get the Twins at home next time out, making him a decent play in mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:19 pm
  • De La Rosa gives up two runs in win
    Rubby De La Rosa held the Reds to two runs over seven innings in a 6-3 win on Friday.

    Advice: De La Rosa scattered seven hits while walking one and striking out six. He now holds a 2.54 ERA in seven starts since the All-Star break and has gone a perfect 5-0 along the way. He's still widely available in most fantasy leagues, but it's about time that changes. He'll try to keep the good vibes going when he faces the Cardinals next week at home. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:36 pm
  • Bumgarner does it all in victory over Pirates
    Madison Bumgarner delivered another strong performance in Friday's victory over the Pirates, allowing three runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings.

    Advice: The All-Star southpaw racked up six strikeouts on the night while walking one. He also had his hitting prowess on display again on Friday, swatting a two-run homer off Jeff Locke in the second inning, his fifth of the season. Now 15-6 on the year, he'll carry a 3.02 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 180/28 K/BB ratio into Thursday's matchup against the Cubs. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:07 pm
  • Mitchell (concussion) could return soon
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Thursday that Bryan Mitchell (concussion) could be activated from the disabled list when first eligible.

    Advice: Mitchell suffered a concussion and a broken nose when he was hit in the face by a liner on Monday. He's resumed cardio work and should be allowed to throw soon as long as he doesn't experience any more concussion symptoms. Mitchell is eligible to return next Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:41 am
  • Patrick Corbin departs after two innings
    Patrick Corbin lasted just two innings and gave up four runs and eight hits Thursday versus the Reds.

    Advice: This comes 16 days after he pitched just 1 1/3 innings and gave up three runs against the Nationals. However, he's been pretty excellent otherwise since making his return from Tommy John surgery. The Diamondbacks will likely tread carefully with him down the stretch; they have to walk a fine line between not taking chances with him and trying to build him up for next year. If he starts getting pulled earlier, what little mixed-league value he might have will vanish. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:18 pm
  • Yanks place Mitchell on 7-day concussion DL
    Yankees placed RHP Bryan Mitchell on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

    Advice: Mitchell suffered a small nasal fracture when he was hit in the face by a comebacker on Monday. He was also being monitored for a concussion, so apparently he began to show symptoms. He'll now get some extended rest. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:16 pm
