  • Gonzalez gets day off against Diamondbacks
    Adrian Gonzalez is not in the Dodgers' lineup against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

    Advice: It was just a day off for the first baseman, giving him an extra day to go with Thursday's off day. Justin Turner started at first base in Gonzalez' absence. Rotoworld.com

  • Rockies put Wilin Rosario (wrist) on the DL
    Rockies placed C Wilin Rosario on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 23, with left wrist inflammation.

    Advice: Rosario wasn't making swift enough progress from his sore left wrist, but it's not believed to be a major injury and he should be ready to return as soon as he is eligible. Rosario owns a disappointing .687 OPS with 10 home runs and 43 RBI in 91 games this year. He had an .801 OPS, 21 homers, and 79 RBI in 121 games last year. Rotoworld.com

  • Appel has career-best outing
    Astros prospect RHP Mark Appel struck out 10 batters over eight scoreless innings on Tuesday for Double-A Corpus Christi, allowing just two hits and one walk.

    Advice: The outing was the best of Appel's career, as he set new personal bests with eight innings pitched and 10 strikeouts. The 23-year-old is finally showing the promise that made him the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 draft (and the No. 8 pick in 2012). Since moving up to Double-A Corpus Christi, Appel has pitched to a 3.15 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 34-10 strikeout-to-walk ratio over 34 1/3 innings (6 starts). This of course comes after he registered a dismal 9.74 ERA and allowed 10 home runs over 78 2/3 innings at High-A Lancaster. Appel will look to continue his late-season success in the Arizona Fall League. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Pomeranz will start for the A's on Wednesday night against the Astros. He had a strong 2.91 ERA and 48/23 K/BB ratio in 55 2/3 innings before being demoted in July and makes for a good fantasy streamer in Houston. Rotoworld.com

  • Wainwright going through 'dead arm' phase
    Adam Wainwright revealed Wednesday that he's been going through a "dead arm" phase.

    Advice: Wainwright lost again Wednesday versus the Pirates and finished with a 5.17 ERA in six August outings. He entered the month with a 1.92 mark. The good news is that the tall right-hander thinks he's just about over the hump, saying he's "ready for September." The Cardinals could certainly use the first-half version of their ace in the final month. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeff Locke dominates Cards Wednesday
    Jeff Locke spun 7 1/3 frames of one-run ball in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Locke recorded just three strikeouts, but he was touched up for just one run in the form of a Matt Holliday solo blast in the third inning. The left-hander put up a 2.90 ERA over five August outings to lower his ERA on the year to 3.51. He'll try to keep it going next week in a rematch versus the Cards on the road. Rotoworld.com

  • Daniel Hudson close to rejoining D'Backs
    Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said Tuesday that Daniel Hudson (elbow) will make a final rehab appearances with Triple-A Reno on Friday before joining the big club "shortly thereafter."

    Advice: Working his way back from a second Tommy John surgery, Hudson has allowed one run while striking out six over his first five rehab innings. The D'Backs still view him as a starter over the long haul but have decided it would be best to bring him back this season as a reliever. Rotoworld.com

  • Wright admits that shoulder is still an issue
    David Wright admitted on Tuesday that his left shoulder is not 100 percent.

    Advice: Wright has denied in the past that he's still nursing the shoulder injury that originally cropped up in late June. However, after hitting coach Lamar Johnson said in an interview Tuesday that Wright is still ailing, the third baseman didn't deny it, but he also refused to blame it for his struggles. "Everybody has an opinion,'' Wright said. "Lamar sees me on a daily basis. Is the shoulder 100 percent? No. But that takes rest, and that's what the offseason's for. But is that the reason that I'm struggling the way I'm struggling? No. So, I think it's not a reasonable assessment as to why I'm playing poorly.'' Wright, who is also battling a minor neck ailment, is hitting .244/.306/.315 with just two homers over 44 games since the injury. It's hard to believe that he'll be a reliable fantasy option during the final month. Rotoworld.com

  • Trout notches three hits in win over Marlins
    Mike Trout went 3-for-4 with an RBI double in the Angels' 8-2 win over the Marlins on Tuesday.

    Advice: Trout hit the one-out RBI double in the fourth inning off of Miami starter Nathan Eovaldi, knocking the pitcher out of the game. It was Trout's 92nd RBI of the season. The three hits bumped his average up to .289. This three-hit effort isn't the norm in front of the home crowd, as Trout's numbers are noticeably lower at home (.258/.351/.525) than they are on the road (.312/.390/.584). "Noticeably lower" is still really good in Trout's case. Work on that home average, maybe? On the year he's slashing .289/.374/.558. Rotoworld.com

  • Ross tops the Brewers in quality start
    Tyson Ross improved to 12-12 by holding the Brewers to one run over 6 1/3 innings on Tuesday.

    Advice: Ross struck out six, walked two and scattered four hits in the strong outing. We weren't surprised. Ross is one of the best fantasy bets in the game when pitching at Petco, where he'd gone 3-0 with a 0.96 ERA in his last four starts and posted a 1.94 ERA prior to tonight. Ross (2.64 ERA overall) has another home start coming up, this one against the Diamondbacks on Monday. Rotoworld.com

  • Gonzalez goes 1-for-3 with BB, RBI, 2 runs
    Adrian Gonzalez finished 1-for-3 with a walk, two runs scored and an RBI in Tuesday's 9-5 victory over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Gonzalez is 6-for-9 (.667) with two doubles, a homer and seven RBI in his last three games. The veteran first baseman is batting .325 this month, and is slashing .275/.334/.460 overall. Gonzalez is on pace for 22 homers and 110 RBI. Rotoworld.com

    James Paxton delivered 6 2/3 shutout innings in Tuesday's victory over the Rangers.

    Advice: The left-hander surrendered only four hits -- all of them singles -- while walking three and striking out four. Paxton suffered his first career loss last time out. No matter: He now has a 1.91 career ERA in 10 starts. Paxton will carry a 4-1 record, 1.83 ERA, and 1.09 WHIP into his next start against the A's in Oakland. Rotoworld.com

  • Martinez allows 5 runs in poor start vs. SEA
    Nick Martinez struggled versus the Mariners, allowing five runs on six hits over five innings in Tuesday's loss.

    Advice: He walked four and recorded zero strikeouts in the ugly outing. After not recording more than three punchouts in any of his first 11 starts, Martinez had whiffed 23 across his last 22 frames coming into tonight. Safe to say the good vibes have vanished. The rookie right-hander falls to 3-10 with a 5.31 ERA. Martinez pitches in Houston on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • Walters blasts game-winning homer in extras
    Zach Walters hit a game-winning two-run home run in the 10th inning to give the Indians an 8-6 win over the White Sox on Tuesday.

    Advice: Walters went deep off White Sox reliever Jake Petricka, his sixth home run since being recalled on August 10. Walter also singled, walked and scored in the game. It's been mostly boom-or-bust for the 24-year-old, who is hitting just .207/.266/.529 on the season despite the power display, but he should be starting in AL-only leagues for his ability to hit the long ball alone.

  • Kipnis has two hits, RBI single vs. White Sox
    Jason Kipnis went 2-for-5 with an RBI single in Tuesday's win over the White Sox.

    Advice: August is proving to be Kipnis' best month thus far, as he's hitting .281 with 12 runs scored. The good month has the second baseman's line up to .251/.323/.350, still a disappointing mark considering the expectations placed upon Kipnis heading into the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Garcia has two hits, two RBI against Indians
    Avisail Garcia went 2-for-5 with a double and two RBI in a loss to the Indians on Tuesday.

    Advice: Garcia did some early damage, delivering a two-run single in the first inning. Garcia also struck out twice, giving him 12 strikeouts in 33 at-bats since coming off the disabled list. Owners have to live with that frustration for his production -- Garcia has three doubles, two home runs and nine RBI in those nine games as well. The 23-year-old is hitting .254/.304/.492 overall.

  • Chen fails to make it through the fifth frame
    Wei-Yin Chen got a no-decision despite failing to make it through the fifth inning as the Orioles defeated the Rays 4-2 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Chen didn't have his best stuff on Tuesday, failing to record a strikeout on any of the 22 batters he faced. Overall, he yielded seven hits and three walks. He was lucky to have only allowed the two runs, as Brad Brach bailed him out to finish off the fifth inning. Chen has a 3.76 ERA, a 1.25 WHIP, and a 109/28 K/BB ratio. The lefty, still 13-4, will match up against the Twins at home on Tuesday in his next start. Rotoworld.com

  • Mets hitting coach says Wright still has pain
    Mets hitting coach Lamar Johnson told SNY.TV's Robert Brender that David Wright is still dealing with pain in his left shoulder.

    Advice: Wright is hitting just .215 with a .489 OPS since the All-Star break and is currently riding a career-long 143 at-bat home run-less streak, but he insists that the shoulder isn't an issue and that he's healthy enough to play. However, Johnson seems to have a different opinion on the matter. "When your shoulder is hurt, it's really tough," said Johnson. "It's hurt in his left shoulder and that's where your swing starts, with your left side, your left hand getting to the ball. It's been tough because he's been trying to play through that. It's just been a real tough haul because it's hard to get a consistent swing when you're in pain." Even if the pain has subsided, many have speculated that Wright changed his swing to compensate for the discomfort and that he hasn't been able to get back to where he was before. Even with his long track record, it's hard to count on him in fantasy leagues right now. Rotoworld.com

  • Drew Pomeranz getting ball for A's Wed.
    Athletics manager Bob Melvin confirmed Monday that Drew Pomeranz will be recalled to start on Wednesday versus the Astros.

    Advice: The A's will use a sixth starter for one turn in order to set up the top four of their starting rotation for a big four-game weekend set in Anaheim. Pomeranz held a 2.91 ERA and 48/23 K/BB ratio in 55 2/3 innings before being bumped to Triple-A Sacramento in July by the Jason Hammel and Jeff Samardzija trade. He makes for a decent fantasy streamer versus the Astros. Rotoworld.com

    Drew Pomeranz is likely to start for the A's on Wednesday night against the Astros.

    Advice: The A's will use a sixth starter this week in Houston to line up the top four of their starting rotation for a big four-game weekend set in Anaheim. Pomeranz had a cool 2.91 ERA and 48/23 K/BB ratio in 55 2/3 innings before being bumped to Triple-A Sacramento in July by the Jason Hammel and Jeff Samardzija trade.

  • Mike Trout launches 29th homer in victory
    Mike Trout launched his 29th home run of the season on Sunday, helping the Angels to dispatch the Athletics in Oakland.

He also singled in the contest, finishing 2-for-5 with a pair of runs scored. He's enjoying another phenomenal season at the dish, hitting .288/.373/.559 with 29 long balls and 91 RBI. Rotoworld.com

    Adrian Gonzalez finished 2-for-3 with a homer and five RBI in Saturday's 7-4 victory over the Mets.

    Advice: Trout finished 2-for-4. He entered the game batting only .221 this month, though he'd poked out three homers and walked eight times. The stud outfielder is slashing .289/.375/.559 and is on pace for 36 homers, 115 RBI, 108 runs, and 15 steals.

    Advice: Walks were Locke's biggest problem last season, and he's now walked 12 batters in his last three starts. Despite the control issues, Locke was good enough to win his third straight decision, keeping the Brewers to just two hits. The southpaw owns a 5-3 record and 3.69 ERA through 15 starts.

    Advice: Walters did what nobody else on the Indians could: Touch the immortal Brad Peacock. Peacock limited the Tribe to just two hits in an injury-shortened start, but Walters was not fazed by Peacock's 5.30 ERA or 1.58 WHIP. He homered in the fifth, a solo shot. Walters has now homered in three straight games. If you're in a deep AL-only league and need a little pop off the bench, you might want to check your waiver wire for Walters. Rotoworld.com

  • Wainwright can't hold lead in loss to Phils
    Adam Wainwright was staked to a three-run lead but couldn't hold it, allowing five runs -- four earned -- over six innings Friday in a loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: Wainwright's struggles continue, as he now owns a 5.29 ERA through five August starts. Most alarming is his lack of control -- Wainwright has walked 44 batters this season after walking 35 all of last season. It wouldn't be surprising to learn he's pitching through some sort of injury at this point. His ERA has risen to 2.52 with the poor month, and a date with the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Wednesday doesn't read like a cake walk for the right-hander, either. Rotoworld.com

    Tyson Ross held the Dodgers to two runs over eight innings in a tough-luck loss on Thursday.

    Advice: Outside of Justin Turner's two-run homer in the eighth inning, Ross was superb. He struck out six, walked two, and had given up just two hits prior to Carl Crawford reaching on an infield single and Turner blasting him home immediately thereafter. Ross has given up more than two earned runs only once since June 16. Now 11-12 with a 2.68 ERA, Ross hosts Milwaukee on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Pomeranz or Chavez could start next week
    The Athletics are considering using Drew Pomeranz or Jesse Chavez to make a spot start next week.

    Advice: The idea would be to use a sixth starter for one turn in order to line up their four best starters for the August 28-31 series versus the Angels. Both Pomeranz and Chavez have pitched well when in the A's rotation this season but were booted when the club acquired Jeff Samardzija, Jason Hammel and Jon Lester. Rotoworld.com

  • Zach Walters hits fourth homer for new team
    Zach Walters hit his fourth homer in eight games Thursday for the Indians' lone run against the Twins.

    Advice: Unfortunately, Walters has just three additional hits since being called up, but four homers in eight games is still quite impressive. The Indians thus far have used only at left field and DH, whereas the Nationals were still working him primarily an infielder before trading him for Asdrubal Cabrera. Given his limited on-base skills, we're skeptical that he'll be much of an asset if the Indians continue to treat him as a corner outfielder. The power is pretty legitimate, though. Rotoworld.com

    Wei-Yin Chen improved to 13-4 after allowing three runs in 7 1/3 innings Wednesday against the White Sox.

    Advice: Darren O'Day and Zach Britton combined to make a 4-3 lead stand up. Chen is now just two wins away from being the fourth Orioles left-hander to get to 15 in the last 30 years. Jeff Ballard had 18 in 1989, Jimmy Key had 16 in 1997 and Erik Bedard had 15 in 2006. Before that, Orioles lefties like Dave McNally, Mike Cuellar, Mike Flanagan and Scott McGregor used to do it regularly. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Garcia is 5-for-16 with three extra-base hits and six RBI since rejoining the White Sox following a four-month DL stint. It looks like he could be rather useful in mixed leagues the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com

  • Paxton takes first career loss Wednesday
    James Paxton allowed four runs -- one earned -- over four innings Wednesday in a loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: It was the first career loss for Paxton, who hurt himself with a costly throwing error in the fourth inning -- which became a three-run frame for the host Phillies. The left-hander surrendered seven hits and walked two. He'll carry a 3-1 record, 2.20 ERA, and 1.10 WHIP into his next start at home versus the Rangers. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Martinez holds Marlins in check
    Nick Martinez limited the Marlins to two runs over six innings in Wednesday's 5-4 victory.

    Advice: He permitted six hits and two walks while recording a career-high seven strikeouts. After not recording more than three punchouts in any of his first 11 starts, Martinez has whiffed 23 across his last 22 frames. He posted decent strikeout totals in the minors, so perhaps the 24-year-old is starting to figure it out. He'll get the Mariners on the road next. Rotoworld.com

  • Bourn records first hits since return from DL
    Michael Bourn went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

    Advice: Bourn doubled to lead off the fifth inning and scored on a wild pitch, and he added an RBI single in the sixth. The hits were Bourn's first since coming off the disabled list on Friday. The outfielder has played just 69 games this season, owning a .266/.323/.379 line on the year. Rotoworld.com

  • Wright (shoulder) in Mets' lineup on Monday
    David Wright (shoulder) is in the Mets' starting lineup on Monday afternoon versus the Cubs.

    Advice: Wright did not play Sunday after leaving Saturday's game with lingering soreness in his right shoulder. It's something that has bothered him for much of the 2014 season, and he currently holds a career-worst .711 OPS with only eight home runs in 117 games. The star third baseman probably won't be fully healthy again until 2015. Rotoworld.com

  • Nate Freiman clobbers two homers in loss
    Nate Freiman clobbered a pair of home runs in a losing effort against the Braves on Sunday night.

    Advice: Freiman was the only member of the A's offense who could solve opposing hurler Mike Minor in this one, blasting a pair of long solo home runs. Freiman finished the night 2-for-3 and is now hitting .234/.280/.574 with four homers and 11 RBI in his limited time this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Wainwright allows four runs but Cardinals win
    Adam Wainwright gave up four runs -- three earned -- over seven innings but earned a win Sunday versus the Padres.

    Advice: Wainwright was in cruise control until the fifth inning, when the Padres plated two runs on a series of four singles. San Diego then added two more runs in the sixth inning on a Jake Goebbert triple. Wainwright has looked pretty average since mid-July, and it's safe to wonder whether the heavy workload he's been asked to carry over the past two years is finally catching up to him. A road start in Philly is next. Rotoworld.com

  • David Wright (shoulder) may miss few games
    Mets manager Terry Collins confirmed Sunday that David Wright could miss multiple games with his shoulder soreness.

    Advice: Wright has been battling a bruised rotator cuff for most of the season that appeared to be agitated when he was hit by a pitch in Saturday's game. Fantasy owners may want to have another option available for the upcoming week should the struggling third basemen be forced to rest. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Bourn goes hitless but steals base
    Michael Bourn went 0-for-2 but drew two walks and stole a base in Sunday's loss to the Orioles.

    Advice: Bourn has gone hitless in both of his games since returning from the disabled list, but the stolen base is encouraging. The speedy center fielder has just eight pilfers over 68 games this season, as he's battled leg issues. Rotoworld.com

  • Locke locks down Nationals for five innings
    Jeff Locke did not allow a run over five and two-thirds innings of work in Pittsburgh's 4-3 loss to the Nationals on Saturday.

    Advice: Locke struck out six, walked two and allowed just four hits. While you'd like to see at least six or seven innings consistently, this was one of Locke's better starts of the season. On the year, Locke boasts a 3.98 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP and a 57/17 K/BB ratio over 86 innings pitched. He'll face the Brewers next time out. Rotoworld.com
