  • Nori Aoki reaches five times in Royals' win
    Nori Aoki went 4-for-4 with a double and a walk to lead the Royals to a 4-3 win over the White Sox on Monday.

    Advice: Aoki doubled in a tie game in the bottom of the ninth, only to be replaced by a pinch-runner despite his plus speed. It ended up working out for the Royals, as the outrageously fast Terrence Gore scored from second on an infield single to win the game. Aoki is hitting .349 in 43 at-bats this month, though he's not doing much else to help fantasy owners at the moment. Rotoworld.com

  • John Danks goes six scoreless
    John Danks blanked the Royals for six innings, but was left with nothing to show for it Monday.

    Advice: Danks exited with a 3-0 lead, only to have it blown with one run in the seventh, one in the eighth and two in the ninth. As a result, Danks remains winless in his last nine starts. Rotoworld.com

  • Jake Petricka takes blown save, loss
    Jake Petricka took his fifth blown save and his fifth loss after giving up two runs in the ninth Monday against the Royals.

    Advice: Petricka came in with two outs in the eighth and bailed Zach Putnam out of a jam, but he gave up two doubles to tie the game in the ninth. The Royals went on to win on a little grounder up the middle that Alexei Ramirez couldn't handle. It was ruled an infield single that allowed the runner to score all of the way from second, so the run was earned, even though that seemed rather ridiculous. We would hope this doesn't cost Petricka additional save chances down the stretch. Rotoworld.com

  • Andrew Romine goes 3-for-4, knocks in two
    Andrew Romine went 3-for-4 with two RBI against the Twins in Monday's victory.

    Advice: The Tigers have soured on Eugenio Suarez, making Romine the primary shortstop by default. They'll be content with the steady defense they'll get from the former Angel. Offensive outbursts like this won't be common at all. Rotoworld.com

  • Anthony Rizzo walks off with homer in return
    Anthony Rizzo hit a walkoff homer off Pedro Villarreal in the bottom of the ninth as the Cubs beat the Reds 1-0 on Monday.

    Advice: At least the Cubs are still trying to win; the Reds could care less. Rizzo, playing for the first time since Aug. 26, was the only player on either team to have a multihit game tonight, going 2-for-4. The homer was his 31st of the year, which tops his 2013 total by eight. Rotoworld.com

  • Travis Wood goes six scoreless
    Travis Wood tossed six scoreless innings, allowing three hits, against the Reds on Monday.

    Advice: Wood's two best starts since the All-Star break have both come against that motley crew the Reds are currently calling their lineup. He lowered his ERA from 5.03 to 4.86 tonight. Next up is a start against the Dodgers, which probably won't be so easy. Rotoworld.com

  • Bryce Harper dealing with a bout of the flu
    Bryce Harper is dealing with the flu.

    Advice: The flu bug is being passed around the Nationals' clubhouse and apparently caught Harper. It's why he was lightheaded, which forced him from Monday's game. Consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 8:11 pm
  • Stephen Strasburg goes seven scoreless
    Stephen Strasburg blanked the Braves for seven innings, striking out seven, in a victory Monday.

    Advice: Strasburn walked none for the fourth straight start. He had been 3-7 with a 4.61 ERA against the Braves in his career, including a loss last Wednesday, but he had an easy time tonight. The only time the outcome seemed in doubt was when Rafael Soriano took over in the ninth. Since the Nationals held on to win 4-2, Strasburg moved to 12-11 with a 3.34 ERA. Rotoworld.com

  • Freddie Freeman ejected from game Monday
    Freddie Freeman was ejected from Monday's game against the Nationals after spiking his bat following a strikeout.

    Advice: Freeman threw his bat down hard enough that it split in half, which home plate umpire Tim Timmons didn't take kindly to. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez came to Freeman's defense and was also ejected. Rotoworld.com

  • Cabrera hopes to return during homestand
    The Padres are hoping to get Everth Cabrera (hamstring) back at some point during their September 15-24 homestand.

    Advice: Cabrera is currently working out in the Instructional League. He's been sidelined since mid-August with a strained left hamstring but could provide a few steals in the final weeks for fantasy owners that might need them. Rotoworld.com

  • Bryce Harper exits due to lightheadedness
    Bryce Harper left Monday's game versus the Braves due to lightheadedness.

    Advice: It's not clear at this point what brought about the lightheadedness, but the Nationals should provide more on Harper's status after the game. He struck out in his lone at-bat before exiting. Rotoworld.com

  • Bryce Harper leaves with apparent injury
    Bryce Harper left Monday's game against the Braves with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Harper didn't suffer an obvious injury at any point, but Nate Schierholtz pinch-hit for him in the fourth inning. The Nationals will update the outfielder's status shortly. Rotoworld.com

  • Tyson Ross' next start to be pushed back
    Tyson Ross' next scheduled start will be pushed back a few days because the right-hander is dealing with general soreness after his last outing.

    Advice: Ross was rocked for six runs -- four earned -- in three innings Saturday in an uncharacteristically poor showing. It doesn't appear to be something to be overly concerned about at the moment. Robbie Erlin will get the ball on Thursday versus the Phillies, with Ross hoping to start over the weekend or possibly early next week. Rotoworld.com

  • Dustin Ackley back in Mariners' lineup
    Dustin Ackley is back in the Mariners' lineup Monday.

    Advice: Ackley sat out the last two contest after his left ankle issue flared up, but he doesn't expect it to keep him out of action any more this season. It's possible that he'll require surgery over the offseason. Rotoworld.com

  • Duffy (shoulder) out until Sept. 22
    The Royals don't intend for Danny Duffy (shoulder) to start again until next Monday against the Indians.

    Advice: Duffy left his last start on September 6 with a sore shoulder and is slated to pitch in a simulated game Tuesday. Barring any setbacks, he should be cleared to return. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 2:47 pm
  • Duffy (shoulder) to pitch in sim. game Tue.
    Danny Duffy (shoulder) will pitch in a simulated game Tuesday.

    Advice: Duffy left his last start on September 6 with a sore shoulder, but he now feels healthy and ready to pitch. However, the Royals aren't ready to throw him back into game action. Liam Hendriks will start Tuesday against the White Sox. Rotoworld.com

  • Alex Avila (head) not in Monday's lineup
    Alex Avila (head) is not in Monday's lineup against the Twins.

    Advice: Avila left Sunday's game with lightheadedness after taking a foul tip off the mark. The Tigers aren't going to take any chances, given his history. Bryan Holaday will start behind the plate. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 1:28 pm
  • Rizzo (back) finally returns to Cubs' lineup
    Anthony Rizzo (back) is in the Cubs' starting lineup on Monday night against the Reds.

    Advice: Rizzo missed nearly three weeks with a back injury. The first baseman is batting .278/.375/.514 with 30 home runs and 71 RBI in 129 games and will look to finish off his breakout 2014 campaign with a bang. Rotoworld.com

  • Vance Worley moved to the Pirates' bullpen
    Vance Worley has been moved to the bullpen.

    Advice: Charlie Morton will return from the disabled list and claim the vacant rotation spot Tuesday night against the Red Sox. Worley has pitched well in a starting role this season for the Bucs and should be a useful weapon in long relief down the stretch. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 6:38 am
  • Alex Avila leaves game with lightheadedness
    Alex Avila left Sunday's game against the Indians with lightheadedness.

    Advice: Avila took yet another foul tip off his mask in Sunday's contest. While he didn't display concussion-like symptoms, the Tigers opted to play things cautiously given his history. He is likely to receive an off-day on Monday as well. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:39 pm
  • Duffy (shoulder) throws successful bullpen
    Danny Duffy (shoulder) felt no pain during a light bullpen session Sunday.

    Advice: Although he's yet to be officially cleared, Duffy remains hopeful of starting on Tuesday versus the White Sox. The left-hander exited his last outing on September 6 after just one pitch with a sore shoulder, but he's made nice progress since then. The Royals should announce soon whether or not Duffy will get the ball Tuesday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:16 am
  • Tyson Ross allows six runs in loss to D'Backs
    Tyson Ross surrendered six runs -- four earned -- in three innings Saturday in a loss to Arizona.

    Advice: It was one of the ugliest outings of the season for Ross, who entered the start with a 2.66 ERA and watched it rise to 2.81. The 27-year-old right-hander might be hitting a wall here in mid-September. He's thrown 195 2/3 innings this season after totaling 136 2/3 innings between the minors and majors in 2013. Ross will get the Phillies at home next time out. Rotoworld.com

  • Avila slugs go-ahead HR, Tigers stay in first
    Alex Avila slugged a go-ahead two-run homer in the Tigers' 5-4 defeat of the Indians on Saturday.

    Advice: Detroit was trailing 4-3 when Avila took Bryan Shaw deep in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was his only hit of the night, but it helped keep the Tigers at the top of the American League Central standings (by a half-game over the Royals). Avila is batting .222/.329/.371 with 11 home runs and 47 RBI in 117 games this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Dustin Ackley (ankle) resting again Saturday
    Dustin Ackley (ankle) is not in the Mariners' starting lineup Saturday against the Athletics.

    Advice: Ackley played Friday but was out for a week prior due to bone spurs in his left ankle. He felt soreness again after his return. Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon noted that he will be evaluated day-by-day. Rotoworld.com

    Danny Duffy (shoulder) will throw a light bullpen session on Sunday.

    Advice: Duffy has been sidelined since September 6 with left shoulder soreness but an MRI taken earlier this week came up negative and he said Thursday that he is no longer feeling discomfort. He expects to returns to the Royals' rotation Tuesday against the White Sox. Rotoworld.com

  • Freeman swipes third base in loss to Rangers
    Freddie Freeman showed off his wheels in Friday's loss to the Rangers, swiping his third base of the season.

    Advice: Freeman was on the move with a full count on Justin Upton, who wound up striking out. He singled and walked during the game, finishing the night 1-for-3 to raise his season slash to a solid .293/.388.474. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:58 pm
  • Dustin Ackley returns to Mariners' lineup
    Dustin Ackley is back in the Mariners' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Ackley missed the last week of action due to bone spurs in his left ankle. It's possible that he'll require surgery over the offseason, but for now he'll try to gut it out through the final few weeks. He's batting .251/.300/.399 with 11 homers and 60 RBI for the Mariners this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Anthony Rizzo (back) won't play this weekend
    Cubs manager Rick Renteria said Friday that Anthony Rizzo (back) is unlikely to play this weekend.

    Advice: Rizzo has progressed steadily this week in his recovery from a back injury, but he still needs a few more days. A return early next week would seem to be possible. The slugging first baseman hasn't played since August 26. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 2:15 pm
  • Danny Duffy (shoulder) says he's pain-free
    Danny Duffy said Thursday that he no longer feels any pain in his left shoulder.

    Advice: That's certainly good news, but he still has a ways to go before he's cleared to rejoin the rotation. Duffy isn't sure when he'll be cleared to resume throwing, but he hasn't ruled out making his next scheduled start on Tuesday. The left-hander would have to throw a bullpen session by Sunday for Tuesday's outing to be a possibility. Rotoworld.com

  • Jake Petricka records 13th save
    Jake Petricka pitched a scoreless ninth for his 13th save Thursday against the A's.

    Advice: Petricka also earned a save last night after a long layoff that includes a few days away to attend the birth of his child. There's a good chance he'll get Friday off now, so perhaps Zach Putnam will pick up a save opp. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 2:06 pm
  • Jake Petricka perfect for 12th save
    Jake Petricka pitched a perfect ninth for his 12th save as the White Sox beat the A's 2-1 on Wednesday.

    Advice: The White Sox scored twice in the bottom of the eighth to take an unexpected lead. Petricka, who hadn't worked since Sept. 2 after missing the weekend to be with his wife and newborn, was probably going to pitch the ninth either way. He's not assured every remaining save chance for the White Sox, but he remains the best bet in their pen. Rotoworld.com

  • Worley labors through five, but gets 7th win
    Vance Worley labored through five innings, allowing three runs, but went home with his seventh win as the Pirates topped the Phillies on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Phillies made their former hurler work, forcing him to toss 92 pitches in his five frames. The right-hander, however, yielded only four hits and two walks while striking out four. After getting off to a hot start upon his 2014 debut in mid-June, Worley has been pedestrian since August 13, posting a 4.81 ERA over his last six starts. On the season, he has a 3.18 ERA with a 1.26 WHIP and a 70/22 K/BB ratio. He'll have to take on the Red Sox at home on Tuesday when he toes the slab next. Rotoworld.com

  • Cabrera unlikely to rejoin Pads this weekend
    Everth Cabrera is unlikely to rejoin the Padres this weekend.

    Advice: "Let's see how this whole process plays out, even how his hamstring is," Padres manager Bud Black said. "I still think there's some information-gathering with MLB and authorities that I'm not privy to. Organizationally, we're gonna wait for all this to get settled and cleared. Then if this all plays out positively, he can get active." Cabrera was reportedly arrested for a DUI last week, likely what Black is alluding to. He's also been dealing with a hamstring strain. It sounds like a suspension of some sort may be coming down the pipe. Rotoworld.com

  • Strasburg allows three runs in loss to Braves
    Stephen Strasburg allowed three runs on seven hits over six innings in Wednesday's loss to the Braves.

    Advice: Strasburg also struck out eight without walking a batter, but the seven hits allowed were enough to do him in. One of those was a B.J. Upton solo home run, and the other Upton, Justin, delivered an RBI single as well. The loss was his first since August 8 and dropped him to 11-11. Strasburg will have his shot at payback when he faces off with the Braves in Atlanta on Monday. Rotoworld.com

  • M's hoping Ackley (ankle) could return Friday
    The Mariners are hopeful Dustin Ackley (ankle) could be available by Friday.

    Advice: Ackley has been dealing with bone spurs in his left ankle that have kept him out of the lineup since Saturday. Even if he's unavailable Friday, it seems as though Ackley will be back contributing in some fashion shortly thereafter. Rotoworld.com

  • Danks surrenders four runs in loss to A's
    John Danks gave up four runs -- two earned -- over six innings in a loss to the Athletics on Tuesday.

    Advice: It was a prototypical start for the left-hander -- seven hits, a walk, and just three strikeouts. Also prototypical was the decision, as Danks has now lost five straight decisions dating back to July. Danks will take a 9-11 record and 5.05 ERA into Sunday's matchup with the Twins. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:01 pm
  • Rizzo (back) hopes to return by this weekend
    Anthony Rizzo (back) hopes to return to the Cubs' lineup by the end of the week.

    Advice: If not by the weekend, Rizzo thinks he'll "for sure" be ready to play during the Cubs' homestand that begins next Monday. Manager Rick Renteria was more cautious regarding a potential timetable, saying, "I don't want to speculate on that part." Rizzo worked out for the second straight day Tuesday, taking some infield and light batting practice. It looked likely last week that his season was over, but it appears the first baseman will make it back after all. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 3:57 pm
  • Ackley (ankle) a few days away from return
    Dustin Ackley remains a few days away from a return after an MRI showed bone spurs in his left ankle.

    Advice: Ackley had surgery back in October of 2012 to remove a bone spur from the same ankle. It's not clear at this point whether he might eventually require another operation, but expect him for now to play through the issue after a few more days of rest. Rotoworld.com

  • Rizzo (back) takes ground balls, swings
    Anthony Rizzo (back) took some ground balls and a few swings in the batting cage Monday.

    Advice: Rizzo has been out since August 26 with a mild lower back strain, but he's now hopeful that he'll be able to return this weekend. However, Cubs manager Rick Renteria wants to see more before talking about a timeline. "I'll reserve my optimism," Renteria said. "Today is the first day where he's gone out there. He's trying to see how his body is feeling, but I'll just say we'll keep digging it as it comes." Rotoworld.com

  • Everth Cabrera could be activated this week
    Everth Cabrera (hamstring) could be activated from the disabled list this weekend.

    Advice: He's been out since mid-August with a strained left hamstring but has apparently made good progress in recent days. Cabrera has hit just .232/.272/.300 when healthy this season and might not be guaranteed his starting role when he returns. Rotoworld.com

  • MRI shows no damage in Duffy's left shoulder
    An MRI taken Sunday on Danny Duffy's left shoulder showed no major structural damage.

    Advice: Duffy has been diagnosed with left rotator cuff inflammation and the hope is that he will only have to miss one turn in the Royals' rotation (though that's probably overly optimistic). The young southpaw was lifted from his start Saturday evening against the Yankees after grimacing on his opening pitch. Duffy owns an outstanding 2.42 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in 141 1/3 innings this season for American League Central-leading Kansas City. Rotoworld.com

  • Ross gives up three-run homer in loss to Rox
    Tyson Ross gave up a three-run homer, the only runs he allowed, over 5 2/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: Ross was far from effective, giving up seven hits and walking four, but he did well to keep the damage to just the three-run home run. Ross also struck out seven in the game. The loss pulled his record back to an even 13-13, and Ross owns a 2.66 ERA. Ross has an easier task up next, taking on the Diamondbacks on Saturday. Rotoworld.com

  • Wood lasts 1 2/3 innings in loss to Pirates
    Travis Wood lasted just 1 2/3 innings Sunday, allowing seven runs on nine hits in a loss to the Pirates.

    Advice: Wood had trouble keeping the ball in the yard, as three of the nine hits against him went for homers. The loss continued a bad trend for the southpaw, as he's earned just one win since the middle of June. Wood is now 8-12 with a 5.15 ERA. He'll get a shot at redemption when the Cubs take on the Pirates next weekend. Rotoworld.com

    Bryce Harper is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's getting a breather versus southpaw Cole Hamels. Scott Hairston, who is batting .391/.440/.826 with five homers over 50 plate appearances in his career against Hamels, is in left field in Harper's place. Wilson Ramos is also sitting out, as Jose Lobaton is catching Gio Gonzalez. Rotoworld.com

  • Danny Duffy could have biceps tendinitis
    Royals manager Ned Yost said Sunday that there's a "good possibility" Danny Duffy is dealing with biceps tendinitis.

    Advice: It would qualify as good news following Duffy's exit from Saturday's game after one pitch. The Royals said at the time that he was dealing with a sore shoulder, but the pain is apparently more in his biceps area. An official diagnosis on Duffy won't be available until Monday, as he'll get an MRI Sunday evening. If he's indeed dealing with biceps tendinitis, it might not be a long-term issue. Rotoworld.com

    Jake Petricka will not be available this weekend against the Indians, as he just welcomed a new child.

    Advice: Zach Putnam will presumably handle save opportunities in Petricka's place. Petricka has a cool 2.73 ERA with 11 saves on the season for the White Sox. He should be back in the Chicago bullpen Monday against the Athletics. Rotoworld.com

    Danny Duffy is dealing with left shoulder soreness.

    Advice: That's the initial diagnosis from the Royals after Duffy exited his start Saturday against the Yankees following an uncomfortable opening pitch. Tests will be run and more details should be revealed Sunday. This could obviously be a terrible development for American League Central-leading Kansas City. Rotoworld.com

  • Danny Duffy leaves game with injury Saturday
    Danny Duffy left Saturday's start against the Yankees with an apparent shoulder injury.

    Advice: Duffy flinched on his first pitch of the game and then left with a trainer. This could be very bad news for the Royals as they make their run for the playoffs. Duffy is 8-11 with 2.42 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP on the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Strasburg tosses six innings of one-run ball
    Stephen Strasburg allowed one run over six innings in pitching to a no-decision on Friday.

    Advice: It wasn't Strasburg's most dominant outing ever (just six innings pitched) and he was long gone before a decision was rendered. The Phillies ultimately came away with a 9-8 win. Strasburg gave up just four hits while striking out five in his time on the mound. He also did not walk a batter. The 26-year old has a 3.43 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP. He's struck out 210 in 183 innings while pitching to an 11-10 record. While these numbers are not bad by any metric, we're still waiting for Strasburg to put together that one WOW season befitting of his arm and talent. Rotoworld.com

  • Freeman smashes 18th homer in loss to Marlins
    Freddie Freeman smashed his 18th home run of the season on Friday, but it wasn't enough to overcome the Marlins in Miami.

    Advice: Freeman's solo shot came off opposing starter Jarred Cosart and got the Braves on the board in the seventh inning. The 24-year-old slugger is having another strong season in the middle of the Braves lineup, slashing .288/.387/.476 with 18 long balls and 70 RBI. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Aoki's run-scoring single off of Yankee starter Michael Pineda in the third inning was all the offense this game would see, as Aoki's hit backed a brilliant James Shields. The RBI was his 34th of the season. Aoki also attempted to steal a base in the contest, but was unsuccessful. On the season, he's slashing an uninspiring .265/.330/.335. Rotoworld.com

  • Vance Worley fans six Cubs in no-decision
    Vance Worley racked up six strikeouts on Friday, but had to settle for a no-decision against the Cubs after allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits over his 4 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Worley struggled with his command, issuing four walks on the afternoon. The Cubs struck for a pair of runs in the third inning, then tacked on a run in the fifth on an RBI single by Chris Valaika. Worley will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Red Sox at home on Thursday. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Everth Cabrera arrested for DUI
    TMZ is reporting that Everth Cabrera was arrested in San Diego early Wednesday morning on DUI charges.

    Advice: Marijuana, not alcohol, was the culprit here, according to the report. Either way, it's another black mark on Cabrera's career, already marred by domestic violence charges in 2012 (later dropped) and a Biogenesis-related 50-game suspension last year. He's been terrible on the field this year, too, so it seems pretty unlikely that he'll be back with the Padres in 2015. Right now, he's on the DL with a strained hamstring and iffy to return this season. Rotoworld.com
