  • Allen Webster optioned to Triple-A
    Diamondbacks optioned RHP Allen Webster to Triple-A Reno.

  • Kris Bryant starting in right field Monday
    Kris Bryant is starting in right field for the Cubs on Monday.

    Advice: It's just his second start in right field this season and fourth start in the outfield period. Tommy La Stella is at third base Monday and Starlin Castro is at second, but Bryant playing more in the outfield could potentially free up an opportunity for Javier Baez, who is expected to be promoted Tuesday.

  • Teixeira (shin) sent back to NYC for tests
    Mark Teixeira (shin) has been sent back to New York to undergo more tests and has been ruled out for the series versus the Red Sox.

    Advice: The Yankees wish they had a mulligan on this one, as it's clear Teixeira should have been placed on the disabled list a while ago. As it is, they won't make a move now with rosters expanding on Tuesday. Obviously more will be known when the test results come back, but Teixeira is simply in too much pain to play now. Alex Rodriguez is expected to get a start at first base on Wednesday, but Greg Bird will continue to play versus righties. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:29 pm
  • Lucas Duda (back) won't return when eligible
    Lucas Duda (back) is not expected to be activated from the disabled list when first eligible on September 6.

    Advice: Mets manager Terry Collins hasn't officially ruled Duda out for this weekend, but it's looking very unlikely since he's yet to be cleared to take any swings. Duda is dealing with a small thoracic disc herniation in his back and has been taking anti-inflammatories and doing exercises to combat the issue. More should be known on his status later in the week. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:19 pm

  • Teixeira (shin) out of Yankees' lineup Monday
    Mark Teixeira (shin) is out of the Yankees' starting lineup again on Monday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Greg Bird will get another start at first base. Teixeira has barely seen any action over the last two weeks due to a lingering deep bone bruise in his right shin. He's not going to be placed on the disabled list because rosters are expanding on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:48 pm
  • Reds recall Adam Duvall from Triple-A
    Reds recalled 1B Adam Duvall from Triple-A Louisville.

    Advice: Duvall was part of the Reds' return package in the Mike Leake trade. The 26-year-old batted just .192/.234/.342 in 77 plate appearances last season for the Giants and probably won't carry any fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:42 pm
  • Yelich (knee, ankle) out again Monday night
    Christian Yelich (knee, ankle) is out of the Marlins' starting lineup Monday versus the Braves.

    Advice: Yelich singled as a pinch-hitter on Sunday against the Nationals, but he's still not ready to play a full game. The 23-year-old fouled a ball off his ankle last Wednesday and also has a bruised right knee. Derek Dietrich is in left field for Miami on Monday night. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:22 pm
  • Hanley (shoulder) out again Monday vs. Yanks
    Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) is out of the Red Sox lineup again on Monday night against the Yankees.

    Advice: Ramirez missed Boston's entire weekend series against the Mets with fatigue in his left shoulder. He's been bothered by several injuries throughout 2015 but has yet to spend a day on the disabled list. It's been a source of frustration for fantasy owners, and it's not clear how long this current absence is going to last. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:19 pm

  • Cuddyer out of Mets' lineup Monday vs. Phils
    Michael Cuddyer is out of the Mets' starting lineup on Monday night against the Phillies.

    Advice: Cuddyer went 3-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored on Sunday afternoon against the Red Sox, but he'll be on the bench Monday versus Phillies righty Jerad Eickhoff. Michael Conforto is starting in left field. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:12 pm

  • Braves recall Ryan Kelly from AAA Gwinnett
    Braves recalled RHP Ryan Kelly from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Kelly has posted exceptional numbers this year in the minors and should get a long look in a middle relief role with the possibility of some late-inning nods. Atlanta will be open to trying anything in that bullpen down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:22 am
  • Braves option Jacob Brigham to Triple-A
    Braves optioned RHP Jacob Brigham to Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Brigham was lit up for eight earned runs in 1 2/3 innings of relief Sunday by the Yankees. The 27-year-old right-hander could get another look in September. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:19 am

  • Nationals sign Scott Sizemore to minors deal
    Nationals signed INF Scott Sizemore to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The transaction happened a week ago and Sizemore is already playing in games for the Nationals' Triple-A affiliate.

  • Cards activate Rosenthal from paternity leave
    Cardinals activated RHP Trevor Rosenthal from the paternity leave list.

    Advice: Rosenthal missed the Cardinals' weekend series in San Francisco to welcome a new baby girl. The 25-year-old All-Star closer will be back in the St. Louis bullpen for Monday night's series opener against the Nationals at Busch Stadium. He has a 1.52 ERA and 41 saves so far this season for the first-place Cards. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:15 am
  • Michael Taylor (knee) goes 2-for-4 in return
    Michael Taylor (knee) went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in his return to the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Taylor was held out for a couple games after bruising his right knee. The young outfielder is going to be an important player for the second-place Nationals down the stretch with Denard Span (hip) now ruled out for the remainder of the 2015 season. Taylor, 24, is batting .243/.292/.391 with 13 home runs and 15 stolen bases in 111 games this year at the major league level. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:15 am
  • Yelich (knee) hits pinch-hit single vs. Nats
    Christian Yelich (knee, ankle) hit a pinch-hit single in the Marlins' loss to the Nationals on Sunday.

    Advice: Yelich hadn't appeared in a game for the Fish since re-injuring his right knee and fouling a ball off his ankle last Wednesday. The 23-year-old outfielder should be ready to return to everyday action this week. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:10 am
  • Bryant's two-run homer powers Cubs to victory
    Kris Bryant blasted a two-run homer off Alex Wood in the first inning on Sunday, powering the Cubs to a 2-0 victory over the Dodgers.

    Advice: That proved to be more than enough offense to back an absolute gem spun by Jake Arrieta. Bryant finished the night 1-for-4 and is now slashing .260/.362/.477 with 21 homers and 79 RBI in his impressive rookie campaign. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:52 pm

  • Allen Webster pitches well in no-decision
    Allen Webster pitched well in a no-decision against the Athletics on Sunday, allowing three runs (one earned) on six hits over his five innings of work.

    Advice: Webster struck out two on the afternoon while walking one. He gave up a pair of unearned runs in the third inning and was tagged for a solo homer by Stephen Vogt in the fourth, but that was the extent of the damage against him. It's unclear if he'll draw another turn through the rotation, if he does he would be lined up to take on the Cubs in Chicago on Friday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:15 pm

  • Cuddyer collects 3 hits as Mets top Red Sox

    Advice: Cuddyer led off the second inning with a single and later came around to score the first run of the ballgame. He walked and scored in the sixth, then added an RBI single in the seventh to break a 4-4 tie. Since returning from the disabled list, Cuddyer is batting .388 (19-for-49).

  • Mark Teixeira (shin) sitting out again Sunday
    Mark Teixeira (shin) remained out of the Yankees' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Teixeira has started just one game over the last 13 days due to a deep bone bruise in his right shin. He's not going to be placed on the disabled list with roster expanding soon, but there's no timetable for his return to action. Greg Bird will continue to handle first base. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:06 am
  • Michael Taylor (knee) returns to Nats' lineup
    Michael Taylor (knee) is back in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Taylor didn't start the last couple games due to a bruised right knee. He was able to pinch-hit Saturday, though, and is back in the lineup Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:54 am
  • Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) held out again
    Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's missed the entire weekend series versus the Braves due to fatigue in his left shoulder. Alejandro De Aza is in left field again in Ramirez's place. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:03 am

  • Diamondbacks recall Allen Webster from AAA

  • Michael Taylor (knee) remains sidelined
    Michael Taylor (knee) is not in the Nationals' starting lineup Saturday against the Marlins.

    Advice: He banged his right knee against the outfield wall in Thursday's win against San Diego. Denard Span's season-ending hip injury has opened up playing time for Taylor in center field. Bryce Harper will get the start there on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:42 pm
  • Braves recall Jacob Brigham from Triple-A
    Braves recalled RHP Jacob Brigham from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Brigham is taking the place of Williams Perez on the active roster. He has struggled in his limited time with the big league club, registering a 4.80 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 9/4 K/BB ratio over 15 innings. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:08 pm

  • Hanley Ramirez remains out of Red Sox lineup
    Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) remains out of the Red Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

  • Kris Bryant fans four times
    Kris Bryant fanned all four times he was up Friday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: If you're going to have a four-strikeout game, at least have it against Clayton Kershaw and Kenley Jansen. Bryant lost his seven-game hitting streak, but he's still batting .262. He opened August at .246. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:29 pm

  • Hanley Ramirez battling shoulder fatigue
    Hanley Ramirez was scratched from the Red Sox' lineup Friday due to right shoulder fatigue.

  • Hanley Ramirez scratched from lineup Friday
    Hanley Ramirez was scratched from the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

    Advice: It's unclear what the reasoning is for the scratch, but Ramirez has had a foot issue recently. The Red Sox should have more on his status shortstop. Jackie Bradley took his spot in left field. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:58 pm

  • Mark Teixeira (shin) could undergo more tests
    Mark Teixeira (shin) remains sore and could be sent for more tests.

    Advice: Teixeira returned to action Tuesday, but he could barely run and he's still feeling it after Thursday's off day. Obviously he's not in Friday's lineup and he could finally be placed on the disabled list. Greg Bird will fill in again at first base. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:39 pm
  • Trevor Rosenthal goes on paternity leave

  • Michael Taylor (knee) to miss a few games
    Michael Taylor (knee) is expected to be sidelined for a few days.

    Advice: The feeling is that Taylor didn't cause any major damage when he collided with the outfield wall Thursday, but he has a bad bruise on his right knee. He could wind up missing the entire weekend series against the Marlins. Matt den Dekker should handle center field for a few days. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:32 am
  • Christian Yelich re-tweaks right knee
    Christian Yelich didn't play Thursday because he re-injured his right knee and also fouled a ball off his ankle on Wednesday.

    Advice: Yelich just returned from the disabled list on Tuesday after missing the last two weeks with a bruised right knee. It doesn't seem at this point that the Marlins are viewing it as a serious setback, but expect them to be cautious with Yelich over the next few days. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:26 am
  • X-rays come back negative for Taylor
    Michael Taylor (knee) is listed as day-to-day after being diagnosed with a right knee contusion on Thursday.

    Advice: Taylor was pulled from Thursday's game in the seventh inning after crashing into the outfield wall. Thankfully, he was able to avoid any significant injuries and should be cleared to return to the Nationals lineup at some point over the weekend. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:31 pm

    Michael Taylor was removed from Thursday's game against the Padres after crashing into the outfield wall.

    Advice: Taylor was attempting to track down a deep drive off the bat of Melvin Upton when he leaped and crashed into the outfield wall at full speed. The injury is believed to have occurred to his right knee, though the severity is unknown at the moment. The Nationals should have an update on his status after the game. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:07 pm
  • Yelich (knee) out of Thursday's MIA lineup
    Christian Yelich is out of Thursday's lineup against the Pirates with a bruised knee.

    Advice: Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald notes that he's not even taking batting practice, so this situation is worth watching. Derek Dietrich will start in left field while Ichiro Suzuki will play right. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:16 pm
  • Bryant drives home both Cub runs with single
    Kris Bryant went 2-for-4 with a two-run single and a double in Wednesday's loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Bryant and fellow young human Kyle Schwarber picked up four of the team's five hits, with the third-baseman driving in both Cub runs with a two-run single in the first. That turned out to be the offensive highlight of the game for the Cubbies, as they wouldn't score again. This was just their sixth loss in their last 21 road games. Bryant's certainly done his part to help fuel a possible playoff run, hitting .265/.368/.482 with 20 home runs, 77 RBI and 12 steals over 423 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:17 pm

  • Rosenthal earns 40th save in win over ARI
    Trevor Rosenthal notched his 40th save of the season in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Diamondbacks, striking out two and walking one in a scoreless ninth inning.

    Advice: Rosenthal came on looking to secure the win for John Lackey. He struck out Paul Goldschmidt and David Peralta to open the ninth inning, but followed those two strikeouts with a walk to Aaron Hill, bringing the tying run to the plate in the form of Jake Lamb. Rosenthal then bared down to induce a fly out from Lamb to end the game. The 25-year-old has been among the best closers in baseball this season, converting 40-of-42 opportunities while holding a 1.54 ERA and 66/20 K/BB ratio over 58 1/3 innings. He's tied with Pirates closer Mark Melancon for the major league saves lead. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:46 pm
  • Cuddyer's 3 hits, 3 RBI lead Mets over Phils
    Michael Cuddyer enjoyed a 3-for-5, three-RBI night in Wednesday's win versus the Phillies.

    Advice: Cuddyer ripped an RBI double in the middle of a three-run first inning, then clubbed a two-run home run in the eighth inning to put the Mets up 6-0. Seven of his 11 hits since returning from the disabled list have come against the Phillies, but his resurgence is notable nevertheless. Cuddyer is making steady progress on a once-abysmal batting line, now at .263/.313/.408 along with 10 home runs and 37 RBI. He started at first base with Lucas Duda sidelined, but Duda is due back on September 6. Cuddyer's playing time figures to shrink further then. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:40 pm

  • Rosenthal to miss series for baby's birth
    Trevor Rosenthal will miss the Cardinals' series with the Giants due to the birth of his child.

    Advice: Rosenthal's wife is scheduled to be induced on Friday, and the closer already has a plane ticket bought to be there for the birth. Rosenthal will stay in St. Louis and rejoin the team after they return home from San Francisco. Kevin Siegrist is the best bet to get save opportunities during Rosenthal's absence, so save-needy owners should take a flier on the southpaw while the closer is away. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:32 pm
  • Mark Teixeira sitting out on Wednesday
    Mark Teixeira is not in the Yankees' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Teixeira returned to action on Tuesday, but the Yanks have decided to rest his ailing right leg again for Wednesday's afternoon game with an off day coming Thursday. He should be back in there Friday. Greg Bird is at first base Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:11 am
  • Hanley confirms he's moving to 1B next year
    Hanley Ramirez acknowledged to reporters Tuesday that he is moving to first base next year.

    Advice: The first directive from new Red Sox president Dave Dombrowski, perhaps? Hanley was spotted taking grounders and making throws on Tuesday afternoon in Chicago and said after the workout that he could begin seeing starts at first base down the stretch this season. "I'm looking forward to it," said Hanley, who has been a disaster in left field. Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., and Rusney Castillo make up the outfield of the future in Boston.

    4:10 pm vs x NYY
     
  • Hanley Ramirez taking grounders at first base
    Hanley Ramirez took grounders and made throws at first base on Tuesday afternoon.

    Advice: Hanley has been a huge disappointment defensively in his first year as an everyday outfielder. An eventual move to first base makes sense for the former shortstop with Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., and Rusney Castillo lined up as Boston's outfield of the future. Ramirez is under contract with the Red Sox through 2018. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:29 pm

  • Teixeira (shin) returns to Yanks' lineup
    Mark Teixeira (shin) returned to the Yankees' lineup for Tuesday's game against the Astros.

    Advice: Teixeira hasn't played since last Monday due to a deep bone bruise in his right shin, but he was all set to pinch hit Monday before Carlos Beltran's game-winning sacrifice fly. He's playing first base and batting cleanup against Astros ace Dallas Keuchel. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:32 pm
  • Yelich (knee) activated from disabled list
    Marlins activated OF Christian Yelich from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Yelich ended up missing the minimum 15 days with a right knee contusion and didn't even require a minor league rehab assignment. The 23-year-old is batting .275/.343/.376 with six home runs, 29 RBI, and 14 steals over 92 games this season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:23 pm
  • Rosenthal allows a run but gets his 39th save
    Trevor Rosenthal allowed a run but finished out the ninth inning for his 39th save in Monday's 5-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Rosenthal allowed a one-out double to A.J. Pollock and a two-out single to David Peralta, but struck out pinch-hitter Yasmany Tomas to end the game. The right-hander is 39-for-41 in save chances with a 1.57 ERA and a 64/19 K/BB ratio in 57 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:54 pm
  • Cuddyer homers in Mets' rout of the Phillies
    Michael Cuddyer went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a walk, and a solo home run in Monday's win against the Phillies.

    Advice: Cuddyer slugged his first home run since July 18 when he took Hector Neris yard in the fifth inning. He's had a forgettable year, batting .255/.307/.391 with nine home runs and 32 RBI while losing time to a knee injury. The Mets haven't been playing Cuddyer regularly and likely will continue that trend the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:31 pm

  • Lucas Duda (back) expected back when eligible
    Lucas Duda (back) is expected to be activated from the disabled list when first eligible on September 6.

    Advice: Mets fans were fearing the worst after it was announced that Duda was visiting Dr. Robert Watkins in California on Monday, the same doctor who diagnosed David Wright with spinal stenosis earlier this season. However, Dr. Watkins gave Duda a favorable diagnosis, saying he has a small thoracic disc herniation. Duda has been prescribed anti-inflammatories and exercises and won't even require a cortisone shot. It's great news for the Mets. Rotoworld.com Aug 24, 2:39 pm

  • Kris Bryant wins it for Cubs with walk-off HR
    Kris Bryant sent Cubs fans home happy Monday, belting a walk-off, solo home run in the ninth inning versus the Indians.

    Advice: Carlos Santana knotted things up 1-1 in the top of the ninth with a two-out RBI single, but Bryant had some two-out magic in store, as well, hitting a towering opposite field shot off Zach McAllister into the Wrigley Field bleachers. The longball gives Bryant an even 20 for the season to go along with 75 RBI and a .262/.366/.481 batting line. The Cubbies have won 20 of their last 24 games. Rotoworld.com Aug 24, 2:13 pm

  • Yelich (knee) aiming to return on Tuesday
    Christian Yelich (knee) is hopeful of being activated from the disabled list on Tuesday, the first day he's eligible.

    Advice: It's a surprise, as just a couple days ago Yelich wasn't cleared to run yet. He made nice progress over the weekend, though, and will shag some flies prior to Monday's game in hopes of being activated on Tuesday. The young outfielder has been out with a right knee contusion. Rotoworld.com Aug 24, 1:35 pm
  • Mark Teixeira (shin) out of lineup again Mon.
    Mark Teixeira (shin) is out of the Yankees' starting lineup again on Monday night against the Astros.

    Advice: Greg Bird will get another start at first base as Teixeira continues to nurse a deep bone bruise in his right shin. The veteran is still considered day-to-day and could be available to pinch-hit Monday. He hasn't appeared in a game for the Yankees in a week but was able to take pregame batting practice on Monday afternoon. Rotoworld.com Aug 24, 12:36 pm
  • Bryant socks pair of home runs vs Braves

The NL Rookie of the Year candidate is hitting .262/.367/.476 with 19 home runs, 74 RBI and 12 steals through 412 at-bats. Sunday's multi-homer effort was Bryant's third of the season.

  • Mark Teixeira (shin) to take BP Sunday
    Mark Teixeira (shin) is expected to take batting practice on Sunday.

    Advice: It would be his first baseball activities since he suffered a deep bone bruise on his right shin when he fouled a ball off his leg Monday. It's possible Teixeira will return to the lineup Sunday if he takes BP and feels alright. Rotoworld.com Aug 23, 7:18 am
  • Ramirez doubles in loss to Royals
    Hanley Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a double in Saturday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: The double was just Ramirez's 11th of the season. He's been one of the worst regular starters since the middle of July, hitting just .191/.214/.234 in 98 post-All-Star at-bats. To be fair, he is dealing with a foot injury this month, but the numbers he's posted for the season (.254/.294/.433 with 19 homers, 53 RBI and six steals) simply haven't been what the Red Sox paid for in the off-season.

  • Lucas Duda (back) getting a second opinion
    Lucas Duda (back) will travel to California Monday to get a second opinion from Dr. Robert Watkins.

    Advice: Watkins is the same doctor who diagnosed David Wright with stenosis earlier this season. It's not a good sign for Duda, who leads the team with 56 RBI this season. Fortunately, Wright will return to the lineup Monday, which should provide at least a short-term boost for New York's offense. Rotoworld.com Aug 22, 3:24 pm

  • Lucas Duda (back) lands on 15-day disabled list
    Mets placed Lucas Duda on the 15-day disabled list with a back injury.

    Advice: Duda missed six starts in a row last week with a lower back strain and seemed to aggravate the injury in Friday night's win against the Rockies. Reliever Dario Alvarez will absorb his roster spot. Daniel Murphy and Michael Cuddyer are expected to split time at first base with Duda sidelined. Rotoworld.com Aug 22, 1:55 pm

  • Teixeia remains out of Yanks lineup Saturday
    Mark Teixeira (shin) remains out of the Yankees starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: The veteran slugger hasn't played since sustaining a deep bone bruise on his right shin during Monday's game. Greg Bird will once again get the start at first base in his absence and bat fifth for the Bombers. Rotoworld.com Aug 22, 8:39 am
  • Lucas Duda leaves game with back issue
    Lucas Duda was forced to leave Friday's game against the Rockies in the seventh inning when his back tightened up on him.

    Advice: Duda missed six consecutive starts prior to Tuesday's game due to a lower back strain. If he isn't feeling better on Saturday, there's a chance that the slugger could be headed to the disabled list. Rotoworld.com Aug 22, 5:24 am

  • Christian Yelich (knee) not running yet
    Christian Yelich (knee) has yet to be cleared to resume running.

    Advice: Yelich has been taking batting practice with no issues, but there's still some soreness and swelling in his bruised right knee that's keeping him from running. At this point, it seems unlikely that he'll return before the end of the month. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 8:33 am
  • Michael Taylor hits long home run
    Michael Taylor crushed his 11th homer Thursday off the Rockies' Yohan Flande.

    Advice: Statcast had the homer at 490 feet, but other estimates have come in closer to the 470-foot range. Either way, it was a true blast. Taylor hasn't been an on-base guy as a rookie, but his power-speed combination makes him awfully intriguing going forward. Rotoworld.com Aug 20, 9:00 pm
