  • Edwin Jackson activated from disabled list
    Cubs activated RHP Edwin Jackson from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Jackson will rejoin the Cubs' rotation on Friday against the Dodgers after missing the last month with a strained right lat. He holds a 6.09 ERA on the season and can be avoided in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Arismendy Alcantara returns to Cubs' lineup
    Arismendy Alcantara is back in the Cubs' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Alcantara missed the last two games after spraining his right wrist on Monday. The rookie has hit .212/.261/.363 with nine homers and eight steals over 61 games since being promoted by the Cubs in July. Rotoworld.com

  • Nicasio likely to remain reliever in 2015
    Rockies manager Walt Weiss indicated Thursday that Juan Nicasio is likely to remain in a relief role next season.

    Advice: Nicasio was demoted to the minors in June after posting a 5.92 ERA over 14 starts, but he holds a much better 3.78 mark and 15/4 K/BB ratio over 16 2/3 frames since returning as a reliever. "I think he's responded well to (the reliever) role," Weiss said. "I think it suits him, in my opinion. To me, going out there and being able to sprint for an inning or two works. He likes to go and attack hitters. With a bullpen role he doesn't have to think about scouting reports as much." Rotoworld.com

  • David Peralta (back) a 'day or two' away
    Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said Thursday that David Peralta (back) is "a day or two" away from returning to the lineup.

    Advice: Peralta has been sidelined with back discomfort since September 5. The rookie outfielder has surprised with the D'Backs this season, sporting a .293/.326/.461 batting line with seven homers and six steals over 80 contests. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 6:02 am
  • Hudson to be used as reliever next year
    The Diamondbacks plan to use Daniel Hudson as a reliever next season.

    Advice: It's possible that he'll eventually be moved back into the rotation at some point in the year, and being used as a starter remains the goal over the long-term. However, the thinking is that in his first full year back from a second Tommy John surgery, Hudson would be best off easing back into things in relief. He allowed four runs over 2 2/3 innings this month before being shut down but showed good stuff with a fastball that touched 97 mph. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 5:58 am
  • Christian Colon placed on disabled list
    Royals placed INF Christian Colon on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to September 7, with a fractured right middle finger.

    Advice: Colon had been holding out hope that he could play through the injury, but the Royals obviously decided against it. He hit .302/.348/.442 over 20 games across a few stints with the big club this season. Rotoworld.com

    5:10 pm vs Det
  • Wade LeBlanc to start again next week
    Wade LeBlanc will get another start next Tuesday in Oakland.

    Advice: LeBlanc earned the nod after tossing 5 1/3 shutout innings in a no-decision against the Mariners on Thursday. It could conceivably set him up to start the regular season finale, as well, though the Angels aren't thinking that far ahead yet. LeBlanc can be ignored in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 5:45 am
  • Dioner Navarro appears as pinch-hitter
    Dioner Navarro flew out as a pinch-hitter in Thursday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Navarro didn't play Wednesday after taking a foul tip to the mask Tuesday. He should be back in the lineup this weekend. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 1:22 am
  • Rodney earns 46th save as M's top Angels
    Fernando Rodney allowed one run in the ninth inning against the Angels on Thursday but hung on to earn his 46th save of the season.

    Advice: Rodney, tasked with protecting a 3-0 lead against an Angels team that more or less got the night off after clinching the AL West, retired the first batter of the frame before coughing up a Hank Conger homer to right. He evaded further danger, and struck out one, to improve to 46-for-49 in save opportunities to go with a 2.70 ERA and 1.34 WHIP. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:26 pm
  • Morrison knocks out 3-run HR to beat Angels
    Logan Morrison blasted a game-winning three-run homer in the top of the ninth inning to break a 0-0 tie and push the Mariners to a 3-1 win over the Angels on Thursday.

    Advice: He finished 2-for-4 with two runs scored. Morrison has now homered in three of his last eight games, a stretch in which he also has a trio of doubles. It's certainly debatable whether Morrison is Seattle's best option at first base versus righties, but he's rewarded the club's patience with a strong September. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:25 pm
  • LeBlanc throws 5 1/3 shutout innings in ND
    Wade LeBlanc had by far his best showing of 2014 on Thursday, tossing 5 1/3 shutout innings in a no-decision against the Mariners.

    Advice: This start was pushed up -- LeBlanc was originally scheduled to start Saturday against the Rangers -- because the Angels scratched Jered Weaver after clinching the AL West on Wednesday. Don't look now, but LeBlanc is pitching well in September, allowing only one run across 11 2/3 frames (0.77 ERA), including five relief appearances and this start. We still wouldn't trust him in fantasy if the Angels call his number again. After all, the journeyman entered this month with a 10.13 ERA. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:19 pm
  • Adams returns, scores winning run in the 13th
    Matt Adams, making his return to the Cardinals' lineup, went 2-for-5 with a bases-loaded walk, and scored the game-winning run in Thursday's 13-inning win against the Brewers.

    Advice: Adams reached on a fielder's choice and advanced to second base on Jhonny Peralta's single. Tony Cruz then singled, sending Adams motoring around the third base bag to score the winning run. Adams has been bothered lately by an oblique injury. The slugger is slashing .287/.320/.459 with 15 home runs and 66 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:06 pm
  • Lucroy doubles and scores, but Brewers lose
    Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-6 with a double and a run scored in Thursday's 13-inning loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: The Brewers fall to 3.5 games out of the second Wild Card following the loss. Lucroy doubled and scored the Brewers' first run in the fourth inning on an Aramis Ramirez single. The double was the only extra-base hit the Brewers would register on the evening. Lucroy is batting .304/.373/.476 with 13 home runs and 67 RBI with the season nearing its completion. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:03 pm
  • Cruz sends Cards home with a walk-off single
    Tony Cruz delivered a walk-off RBI single in the 13th inning on Thursday against the Brewers, helping the Cardinals hold serve in the NL Central.

    Advice: With the Pirates also winning on Thursday, the Cardinals maintain their 2.5-game hold on first place in the division. Cruz scored Matt Adams from second base on a single to center field off of Jimmy Nelson. Cruz had entered the game in the top of the 10th after Yadier Molina had been replaced with a pinch-runner in the previous inning. Cruz has mustered a .205/.273/.244 slash line and 14 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:59 pm
  • Salazar pitches into the 8th in a no-decision
    Danny Salazar stymied the Astros over 7 1/3 innings on Thursday, allowing just one run, but took a no-decision as the Indians needed 13 innings to pull out a 2-1 victory.

    Advice: Salazar was in line for the loss until Carlos Santana delivered an RBI single in the ninth inning. It was a masterful outing, as he limited the Astros to five hits and a walk while striking out nine. Salazar has had quite the turnaround since rejoining the Indians to start the second half, sporting a 3.06 ERA over his last 11 starts. On the season, he owns a 4.02 ERA with a 1.38 ERA and a 112/32 K/BB ratio. Salazar will face the Royals at home on Tuesday next. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:56 pm
  • Medica has a hit + steal as he breaks slump
    Tommy Medica went 1-for-3 with a steal in Thursday's win against the Phillies.

    Advice: It was his fifth steal of the season. The first baseman went 4-for-8 in this series with a pair of steals after entering it mired in a brutal 3-for-53 (.057) slump over his previous 28 contests. Medica's struggles down the stretch have rendered his odds of making next season's Opening Day roster not a sure thing. He's slashing .233/.286/.401 through 97 games. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:45 pm
  • Daniel Hudson shut down for season
    The Diamondbacks have decided to shut Daniel Hudson down for the season.

    Advice: Hudson isn't injured, but rather the club just doesn't want to push him after he made the long trek back from a second Tommy John surgery. The righty allowed four runs over 2 2/3 relief innings across three appearances. Hudson will compete for a rotation spot in spring training. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:00 pm
  • Alcantara (wrist) out again Thursday
    Arismendy Alcantara (wrist) is out of the Cubs' lineup again Thursday.

    Advice: Alcantara suffered a right wrist sprain when he slammed into the outfield wall on Monday and will miss his third straight game Thursday, but he plans to hit in the cage and take batting practice. If all goes well, he could play Friday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:07 pm
  • LeBlanc to start Thursday vs. Mariners
    Wade LeBlanc will start Thursday against the Mariners.

    Advice: LeBlanc was originally scheduled to start Saturday against the Rangers, but the Angels decided to scratch Jered Weaver after wrapping up the AL West on Wednesday night. The southpaw is not a fantasy option. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:13 pm
  • LeBlanc to start for Angels on Saturday
    Wade LeBlanc has been confirmed as the Angels' starter for Saturday's game against the Rangers.

    Advice: That was confirmed after the Halos clinched the American League West championship on Wednesday night. LeBlanc owns a rough 6.88 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 17 innings this season for Anaheim. He's filling in for Matt Shoemaker, who remains sidelined with an oblique strain. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:50 am
  • Wade LeBlanc likely to start on Saturday
    Wade LeBlanc is the most likely candidate to start for the Angels on Saturday.

    Advice: Angels skipper Mike Scioscia said he wouldn't announce his starter until after Wednesday night's game, but LeBlanc is the most logical choice. With a 6.88 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 14/6 K/BB ratio through his 17 frames, he isn't a good streaming option in mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:38 pm
  • Navarro (head) out of Jays' lineup Wednesday
    Dioner Navarro (head) is out of the Blue Jays' starting lineup on Wednesday versus the Orioles.

    Advice: Blue Jays manager John Gibbons told reporters that Navarro is "a little fuzzy" after taking a foul tip off his mask on Tuesday night. He passed an initial concussion test and is considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 2:58 pm
  • Alcantara (wrist) aiming to return Thursday
    Arismendy Alcantara (wrist) is aiming to return to the Cubs' starting lineup on Thursday.

    Advice: Alcantara suffered a right wrist sprain when he slammed into the outfield wall on Monday and has missed two straight games, but he can throw with no pain and will attempt batting practice on Thursday afternoon. If it goes well, look for him to return. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 1:59 pm
  • Alcantara (wrist) absent from Wed. lineup
    Arismendy Alcantara (wrist) remained out of the Cubs' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: There's no word yet on Alcantara's MRI results, but obviously his right wrist is still not game-ready. The Cubs should have more on the outfielder's status later Wednesday. Ryan Kalish is in center field Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 12:07 pm
  • Angels to have bullpen start on Saturday
    The Angels will make a "bullpen start" on Saturday against the Rangers in place of the injured Matt Shoemaker (oblique).

    Advice: It will be either Wade LeBlanc or Michael Roth who will start the game, but the Angels will utilize many of the 18 pitchers they're carrying. Shoemaker might miss more than just the one start, so LeBlanc and/or Roth could be needed for another start next week. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:14 am
  • David Peralta (back) not ready yet
    David Peralta (back) is not expected to return before Friday.

    Advice: The rookie outfielder has been sidelined with back discomfort since September 5. Peralta resumed all baseball activities earlier this week but apparently still hasn't made the necessary progress in order to return. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 6:19 am
  • Arismendy Alcantara undergoes MRI on wrist
    Arismendy Alcantara underwent an MRI on his ailing right wrist Tuesday.

    Advice: The results are not yet known. Alcantara, who was injured during Monday's game when he slammed into the outfield wall, was wearing a brace Tuesday. The Cubs are calling him day-to-day for now. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:15 pm
  • Edwin Jackson (lat) to return to Cubs on Fri.
    Edwin Jackson (lat) is scheduled to return to the Cubs' starting rotation on Friday.

    Advice: Jackson has been out for almost four weeks with a right lat strain. He's 6-14 this season with a 6.09 ERA and is a bad fantasy option Friday versus the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 2:19 pm
  • Adams (oblique) returns to STL lineup Tues.
    Matt Adams (oblique) is back in the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday against the Brewers.

    Advice: Adams has been dealing with a left oblique injury for much of this month and his offensive numbers have cratered. The Cardinals -- lacking a serviceable backup option at first base -- need to get him right down the stretch. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 1:12 pm
  • Alcantara (wrist) not in Tuesday's lineup
    Arismendy Alcantara is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Reds due to right wrist soreness.

    Advice: Alcantara slammed into the outfield wall on Monday and was wearing a wrap after the game. Consider him day-to-day for now. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 12:57 pm
  • Peralta (back) resumes baseball activities
    David Peralta (back) resumed all baseball activities Monday.

    Advice: Peralta could return to the lineup during the team's September 18-24 road trip. The rookie outfielder has been sidelined with back discomfort since September 5. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 4:10 pm
  • Lucroy has three hits, two RBI to down Reds
    Jonathan Lucroy went 3-for-4 with two RBI as the Brewers downed the Reds 9-2 on Sunday.

    Advice: Lucroy collected three singles, with a two-run single in the fourth inning accounting for his two RBI. The catcher, who has had blossomed as a star in 2014, is finishing strong, batting .353 with seven RBI in September. Lucroy is batting .303/.371/.477 on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 3:25 pm
  • Matt Adams nursing oblique issue again
    Matt Adams is not in Sunday's lineup after aggravating his left oblique issue Saturday.

    Advice: We figured something was up when he wasn't in Sunday's lineup against a right-hander. Adams first tweaked the oblique a week and a half ago but returned after missing just two games. It's not clear at this point how long he might be sidelined this time. Daniel Descalso is at first base Sunday, and he could share time there with Xavier Scruggs while Adams is out. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 10:06 am
  • Matt Adams not in Sunday's lineup
    Matt Adams is not in the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He also sat out Friday's game, but that was against a lefty. With the Cards facing a righty Sunday, you have to wonder if Adams' oblique might be an issue again. Daniel Descalso is getting the nod at first base Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 8:42 am
  • Jackson (lat) expected to make one more start
    The Cubs are hopeful that Edwin Jackson (lat) will make it back for one more start this season.

    Advice: The Cubs are already using six starters, but they apparently are anticipating Jackson's return before the end of the year and would also like to find a start for Eric Jokisch. Jackson has missed the last three and a half weeks with a right lat strain. He owns an ugly 6.09 ERA this season. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 6:03 am
  • Fernando Rodney takes loss in 10th
    Fernando Rodney walked four and took a loss after giving up the go-ahead run in the 10th Saturday against the A's.

    Advice: Rodney hasn't had many off nights this year, but these kinds of things can happen with him. He only got out of the inning because Josh Reddick decided to take a big cut after a 2-0 pitch (and six straight balls total) and lined out to a diving Chris Taylor at shortstop. Since Rodney was pitching in a tie game, he remains 45-for-48 in his save chances. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:54 pm
  • Salazar allows three runs in no-decision
    Danny Salazar gave up three earned runs in 5 2/3 innings Saturday in a no-decision at Detroit.

    Advice: Salazar struck out seven and walked just one, but the Indians tallied two runs in the bottom of the third inning and then Victor Martinez tagged Salazar for a solo homer in the fourth. He's struggled now in back-to-back outings after a string of dominant starts. The young righty will try to get on track next week in Houston. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:37 pm
  • David Peralta MRI shows no structural damage
    An MRI taken Saturday on David Peralta's ailing back showed no major structural damage.

    Advice: Peralta has been sidelined with back discomfort since September 5. He is expected to start baseball activities by Monday and should return to action late next week. The outfielder is batting .293/.326/.461 this year for the Diamondbacks. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:45 pm
  • Dioner Navarro not in Jays lineup Saturday
    Dioner Navarro is not in the Blue Jays starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Rays.

    Advice: Josh Thole is getting the start behind the dish with the knuckleballing R.A. Dickey on the bump. Navarro should be back in there on Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:10 am
  • Logan Morrison homers, doubles in win
    Logan Morrison homered and doubled before being removed for a pinch-running Friday against the A's.

    Advice: Corey Hart is playing better and Justin Smoak is back in the majors, but Morrison is still getting steady starts against right-handers, for better or worse. The homer tonight was his second in three games. Even so, he's hitting just .217 in 217 at-bats against righties this year, compared to .319 in 69 at-bats versus lefties. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:13 pm
  • Lucroy has two hits, knocks in a run vs. Reds
    Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, a walk, and a run scored Friday against the Reds.

    Advice: Lucroy singled home a run in the fourth inning and scored the winning run in the ninth after reaching on a leadoff double. The 28-year-old has hit safely in 14 out of his last 15 games and owns a .302/.370/.478 batting line to go along with 13 home runs and 65 RBI. He's deserving of being in the National League MVP conversation. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:32 pm
  • Alcantara hits solo homer vs. Pirates
    Arismendy Alcantara went 2-for-4 with a solo home run against the Pirates on Friday.

    Advice: It was his first multi-hit game since August 24. With nine homers and seven stolen bases, Alcantara has some enticing skills, but he's batting just .210/.262/.369 through his first 58 games in the majors. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:03 pm
  • Matt Adams getting a day off Friday
    Matt Adams is not in the Cardinals' lineup Friday.

    Advice: The Cards are stacking righties versus southpaw Jorge De La Rosa, as Kolten Wong and Oscar Taveras are also sitting out. Xavier Scruggs is at first base, Mark Ellis is at second and Randal Grichuk is in right field. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 1:49 pm
  • David Peralta (back) aims to return Monday
    David Peralta (back) is now aiming to return to the Diamondbacks' starting lineup on Monday.

    Advice: Peralta had been hoping to get in there Friday, but his back is still giving him trouble. He'll undergo a precautionary MRI to make sure there's nothing seriously wrong. If that turns up negative, the 27-year-old outfielder should be cleared to return after the weekend. Peralta has faded in the second half but still owns a decent .293/.326/.461 overall batting line on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 12:16 pm
  • Navarro stays hot, knocks in a pair of runs
    Dioner Navarro continued his hot hitting, finishing 2-for-3 with a walk and a two-run single as the Blue Jays skated to an 11-1 win against the Cubs on Wednesday.

    Advice: Navarro has hit .404 (21-for-52) with 15 RBI since August 23. His two-run single in the seventh was piling on at that point, as it pushed the Jays' lead to 8-1 in what turned out to be a five-run inning. Navarro owns a .287/.328/.415 slash line along with 12 home runs and 68 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:55 pm
  • Christian Colon to test out finger Thursday
    Christian Colon will test out his broken right middle finger with some throwing drills on Thursday.

    Advice: Colon suffered the injury just a week ago, but the swelling has gone down and he's hoping to play through it. He doesn't expected hitting to be an issue, but throwing could. Even if he's cleared to play, don't expect Colon to have much of a role down the stretch. Rotoworld.com

    David Peralta (back) is hoping to return to the lineup Friday.

    Advice: He'll have missed a week of action by that time due to a back ailment. Peralta is sporting a .293/.326/.461 batting line for Arizona this season. Rotoworld.com
