  • Teixeira (wrist) goes 0-for-3 in return Wed.
    Mark Teixeira (wrist) went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout Wednesday against the Rays.

    Advice: Teixeira sat out Tuesday with discomfort in his surgically-repaired wrist. He told reporters that he's committed to playing through the pain through the end of the season and will then undergo a full examination to determine what sort of offseason treatment is necessary. The 34-year-old first baseman is batting .217/.320/.400 with 21 homers and 58 RBI in 116 games. Rotoworld.com

  • Vogt (ankle) draws walk as pinch-hitter Wed.
    Stephen Vogt (ankle) drew a walk as a pinch-hitter in Wednesday night's loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: But he then had to be pinch-run for by Billy Burns. Vogt hasn't started a game in two weeks due to a sprained left ankle. He should be getting pretty close. Rotoworld.com

  • Rosales goes 3-for-4 with a steal in victory
    Adam Rosales went 3-for-4 with a steal in Wednesday's 6-1 win against the A's.

    Advice: He's 6-for-12 (.500) with two walks over his last three games, the past two of which have come against his former team. Which must be sweet. You might recall last year's Rosales transaction shenanigans between these two clubs. If not, here's your primer: The A's DFA'd him on Deadline Day, the Rangers claimed him on August 2, they DFA'd him on August 5, the A's claimed him back on August 8 and DFA'd him on August 10. The Rangers got him back for good on yet another claim two days later. Rosales has surprisingly turned into a productive AL-only player as the season winds down. He's now slashing .297/.371/.445 across 46 games. Rotoworld.com

  • Cron goes 2-for-3 with HR vs. the Mariners
    C.J. Cron went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer in a win over the Mariners on Wednesday.

    Advice: Cron had gone 1-for-10 with zero RBI in his previous five games since going deep for the last time. At this point in his career, Cron is a bit of an all-or-nothing proposition. The .482 slugging percentage is spectacular, but he'll want to get on base at a better than .301 clip in future campaigns. Rotoworld.com

  • Pujols goes 0-for-4 with 2 strikeouts
    Albert Pujols finished 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in Wednesday's 5-0 win against the Mariners.

    Advice: Pujols returned to the lineup yesterday after leaving Monday's game early due to a left hamstring cramp. The veteran went 1-for-3 on Tuesday and cashed in RBI No. 98. He'd plated 15 runners over his last 12 games coming into play today. Pujols retains a solid .272/.326/.465 slash line. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:07 pm
  • Miguel Cabrera doubles twice in loss
    Miguel Cabrera went 4-for-5 with two doubles Wednesday in the loss to the Twins.

    Advice: He finally made an out in the ninth when he flew out to the warning track. Cabrera's doubles were the Tigers' only extra-base hits of the night. He now has 48 doubles, just two shy of his career high from way back in 2005. Rotoworld.com

  • Davis swats a three-run homer in win over BOS
    Ike Davis doubled and hit a three-run home run in four at-bats as the Pirates polished off a 9-1 victory against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's the first baseman's first multi-hit game since August 3 and his first homer since August 27. The fifth-inning three-run blast extended the Pirates' lead to 9-1 so it was effectively meaningless. Davis has hit 10 long balls since joining the Pirates while knocking in 44 runs and slashing .235/.345/.378. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:09 pm
  • Pearce homers twice as Orioles stay hot
    Steve Pearce swatted a pair of home runs and knocked in four runs in Wednesday's victory against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Pearce broke a scoreless tie with a solo shot off of J.A. Happ in the third inning, then made it 4-0 with a three-run shot off of Happ in the fifth. The 31-year-old journeyman now has 20 home runs, 48 RBI, and a .297/.375/.560 slash line. The Orioles, who clinched the AL East on Tuesday, have won 17 of their last 21 contests. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:43 pm
  • Duda reaches base four times but Mets lose
    Lucas Duda had a perfect night at the plate, going 2-for-2 with a two-run single and two walks, but the Mets were handed a loss by the Marlins on Wednesday.

    Advice: Duda put the Mets on the board with his fifth-inning two run single, and later scored the Mets' third and final run in the eighth, but it wasn't enough. The first baseman has turned in a fine season, slashing .252/.354/.474 with 27 home runs and 83 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:30 pm
  • Vogt (ankle) to try running Wednesday
    Stephen Vogt (ankle) will try running and cutting during batting practice Wednesday.

    Advice: If all goes well, he could be available to pinch hit. Vogt hasn't played in two weeks due to a sprained left ankle. Rotoworld.com

  • Morneau drives in six as Rockies rout Dodgers
    Justin Morneau finished 3-for-4 with a home run and six RBI in Wednesday's 16-2 rout of the Dodgers.

    Advice: Colorado absolutely pounded Dodgers spot starter Carlos Frias, with Morneau kicking off the fun on a three-run blast in the bottom of the first inning. He also hit a two-run single to finish off the scoring in that eight-run opening frame before doubling in the bottom of the fourth and collecting his sixth RBI of the afternoon on a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the fifth. The veteran first baseman has an excellent .320/.363/.497 batting line with 16 home runs and 79 RBI in 127 games this season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:32 pm
  • Ryan Howard not in Wednesday's lineup

  • Brandon Moss not in Wednesday's lineup
    Brandon Moss is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Rangers.

    Advice: Moss has homered in back-to-back games, but he'll take a seat against southpaw Derek Holland. Nate Freiman will make the start at first base. Josh Reddick will also sit Wednesday, with Jonny Gomes in left field and Sam Fuld in right. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:18 pm
  • Teixeira (wrist) back in Yankees' lineup Wed.
    Mark Teixeira (wrist) is back in the Yankees' starting lineup on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Teixeira missed Tuesday night's game due to wrist discomfort. It's apparently a manageable issue. He's playing first base and batting cleanup versus the Rays. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:15 pm
  • Morse (oblique) not expected back Friday
    Michael Morse (oblique) is unlikely to return Friday as initially anticipated.

    Advice: Morse just hasn't progressed as hoped in his recovery from a strained left oblique, as he's still not swinging a bat at 100 percent. It's not clear what the next step is with the veteran, but his timetable is up in the air. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:39 am
  • Christian Walker called up from Triple-A
    Orioles purchased the contract of 1B Christian Walker from Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: Ranked by Baseball America prior to the season as the team's 18th-best prospect, Walker had a great year between Double- and Triple-A, batting .288/.357/.489 with 26 homers and 96 RBI. He'll provide depth at first base following Chris Davis' suspension. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:11 am
  • Pujols (hamstring) has an RBI on Tuesday
    Albert Pujols (hamstring) went 1-for-3 with an RBI on Tuesday versus the Mariners.

    Advice: Pujols exited Monday's game early due to a cramp in his left hamstring incurred on a three-run double in the third inning. The veteran admitted after the game that he was suffering from dehydration. He made it through the entirety of this contest without issue. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:29 pm
  • 1B Moss goes deep in 2nd straight game
    Brandon Moss homered in his second consecutive game in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: Moss snapped a troubling 40-game homerless streak in Sunday's victory over the Mariners. Now he's gone deep in consecutive games, so hopefully we'll see him close the season at a pace closer to the 23 homers he bopped in the first 95 games. Moss is hitting .240 with 25 homers and 80 RBI.

  • Gillaspie's three-run triple crushes Royals
    Conor Gillaspie hit a three-run triple in the seventh inning, and the White Sox held on to beat the Royals 7-5 on Tuesday.

    Advice: With one out and runners on the corners, the Royals opted to walk Jose Abreu to bring up Gillaspie. The 27-year-old made them pay for that decision, ripping a triple into the gap to clear the bases and give the White Sox the lead. The triple was surprisingly his fifth of the season, giving him 57 RBI. Gillaspie finished 2-for-5 in the game to raise his season line to a strong .293/.345/.433. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:08 pm
  • C Posey's homer helps to sink the Snakes
    Buster Posey went 2-for-4 with a homer in the Giants' 2-1 win against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

    Advice: If you're one of those owners with a meticulous nature, you may have known that Posey against Arizona starter Josh Collmenter was one of the best matchups on the board tonight. Long story short, it cashed, and Posey is now 11-for-18 (.611) with three home runs and a double lifetime against Collmenter. Posey also came into tonight batting .408 with 12 RBI in his last 13 games at Chase Field. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:30 pm
  • Morneau has two hits, scores twice vs. LAD
    Justin Morneau went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored in the Rockies' win over the Dodgers Tuesday.

    Advice: Morneau drove in a run with a groundout in the first inning, singling and scoring in the sixth. He later doubled and scored in the eighth as well, his first double since late August as he's managed an intercostal injury. Morneau is looking to finish strong after a really nice rebound year for the 33-year-old, who is hitting .316/.361/.486 with 73 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:12 pm
  • Vargas falls double short of cycle in victory
    Kennys Vargas went 3-for-4 with a home run Tuesday, falling just a double short of the cycle, as the Twins came back to edge the Tigers 4-3.

    Advice: It was the best chance the 275-lb. Vargas may ever get at a cycle, as he legged out his first triple in 180 at-bats in the fourth inning. He followed that with a solo home run in the sixth, his eighth homer of the season, but he grounded out in his final chance at the feat. Still, the three-hit night raises his line to .294/.311/.489 with 36 RBI in 43 games this season. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:27 pm
  • Loney logs three hits as Rays top the Yankees
    James Loney went 3-for-4 with three singles as the Rays handed the Yankees a 6-1 loss on Tuesday.

    Advice: Loney now has three three-hit games out of his last eight contests. The first baseman brought his slash line back up to .292/.338/.385 and has nine home runs and 66 RBI to go along with it. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:13 pm
  • Pearce's 3-run homer powers O's to clincher
    Steve Pearce's first-inning three-run home run gave the Orioles a lead they would not relinquish as they clinched the AL East with a win over the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

    Advice: Pearce put the O's up 3-1 with the jack in the first off of Drew Hutchison. It was perhaps the most poetic way for the Orioles to clinch, as Pearce has been a key contributor who came out of nowhere, in a season in which the club has gotten little out of Matt Wieters, Manny Machado, and Chris Davis. Pearce now has 18 home runs, 44 RBI, and a .294/.371/.541 slash line. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:24 pm
  • Anthony Rizzo to rest every other day
    Cubs manager Rick Renteria said Tuesday that he plans initially to only play Anthony Rizzo every other day.

    Advice: Rizzo homered in his return to the lineup Monday but was then sitting Tuesday. He could play more than every other day eventually depending on how his back responds. "I would say I plan on giving him every other day [off] and will increase his playing time to two days in a row, maybe three," Renteria said. "I have to let it play itself out first." Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:18 pm
  • Konerko to return at least by Friday
    Paul Konerko (hand) could be available to play Wednesday.

    Advice: If he's not ready Wednesday, he thinks he'll "certainly" be available Friday. Konerko hit 30 pitches in extended batting practice Tuesday. "It's pretty much ready to go," Konerko said. "I've got to get more baseball activity in. I didn't hit for 10-12 days or take any ground balls, any of that. Now it's just kind of getting that stuff in. I don't see any reason why I can't be available as early as (Wednesday), but certainly Friday." Rotoworld.com

  • Vogt (ankle) encouraged by progress
    Stephen Vogt (ankle) took batting practice Tuesday.

    Advice: It came after he did some running Monday, though he's yet to be cleared to run the bases. He's encouraged by how his sprained left ankle has responded and could be available to pinch-hit in a few days. Rotoworld.com

  • Joey Votto (quad) takes batting practice
    Joey Votto (quad) took batting practice Tuesday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's done so since landing on the disabled list in early July with a distal left quad strain. Votto has upped his workouts recently and is with the Reds on the road, so it appears that a return before the end of the season is still a possibility. Even if he does come back, however, he'll likely get in only a handful of games. Rotoworld.com

    Mark Teixeira is out of the Yankees' starting lineup on Tuesday due to lingering wrist discomfort.

    Advice: Yankees manager Joe Girardi told reporters that he'll rely on Teixeira to tell the team when he's ready to return. It's a day-to-day situation for now. Teixeira had surgery on that same wrist last season. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • Ortiz not in Tuesday's lineup
    David Ortiz is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Pirates.

    Advice: Ortiz left Sunday's game due to a family emergency, but was expected to rejoin the team Tuesday. Still, he'll take a seat with the DH unavailable under National League rules. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 12:04 pm
  • Morse (oblique) should be ready by Friday
    Michael Morse (oblique) should be ready to return by Friday.

    Advice: Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that Morse was "tentative" during batting practice Monday, so it will likely take him another couple of days to swing with full intensity. The 32-year-old has been sidelined since late August with a strained left oblique. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 5:54 am
  • Trumbo blasts a salami, knocks in five runs
    Mark Trumbo hit a grand slam to lead the Diamondbacks past the Giants 6-2 on Monday.

    Advice: He finished 2-for-5 with five RBI, adding an RBI single in the seventh. The big damage came in the third frame, when Trumbo swatted a Ryan Vogelsong offering over the right field wall to plate Wade Miley, Chris Owings and A.J. Pollock. Trumbo has driven in 10 runs over his last five games. A hot finish would give a nice superficial boost to his disappointing slash line (.239/.303/.389). Rotoworld.com

  • Posey drives in a run in loss to the Snakes
    Buster Posey went 1-for-4 with an RBI as the Giants fell to the Diamondbacks 6-2 on Monday.

    Advice: He has hit safely in six straight. Posey has knocked in 27 of his 86 RBI in his last 23 games. He's been particularly hot in the season's final month, going 22-for-49 (.449) with two homers and 14 RBI in September. The catcher typically feasts on Rattler pitchers, coming into this one hitting .375 with 17 RBI in his last 18 against Arizona. He's slashing .311/.362/.488 with 20 homers. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:45 pm
  • Miguel Cabrera hits 23rd homer in Tigers' win
    Torii Hunter and Miguel Cabrera hit back-to-back homers in the top of the ninth as the Tigers beat the Twins 8-6 on Monday.

    Advice: The Tigers threw away a 6-0 lead before Hunter and Cabrera powered them back on top off Casey Fein. Cabrera ended up 3-for-5 with three runs scored, collecting his 23rd homer and his 46th double. He's hitting .436 with six homers and 11 RBI in 55 at-bats this month. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:50 pm
  • 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
    Monday, 8:32 pm
  • Pujols leaves game with hamstring cramp
    Albert Pujols left Monday's game against the Mariners with a left hamstring cramp.

    Advice: Pujols cleared the bases with a double in the third inning but grabbed his hamstring on the way into second base. The good news is that the Angels are calling it a cramp, so it sounds like a day-to-day situation. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:15 pm
  • Paul Konerko (hand) takes batting practice
    Paul Konerko (hand) took batting practice Monday.

    Advice: Konerko is dealing with a small fracture in his left hand but hopes to return at some point during the White Sox' current road trip. "It's coming along," manager Robin Ventura said. "He swung the bat a little bit, and I think he's going to get out there today and see how much he can take. It's the impact you're worried about. He can move his hand around enough to get by, but until we can see what happens when he makes impact, then we'll go from there. He's encouraged by it, so it's looking like he's getting closer to playing." Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 5:07 pm
  • Morse (oblique) still a day or two away
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that Michael Morse (oblique) was "tentative" while taking batting practice Monday.

    Advice: He did add that Morse started to loosen up as the session went along, but the outfielder is still at least another day or two away from returning. He's been out since late August due to a strained left oblique. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 4:51 pm
  • Morneau (intercostal) back in Monday's lineup
    Justin Morneau (intercostal) is back in Monday's lineup against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Morneau exited Friday's game with left intercostal soreness, but it's not a major concern. The veteran first baseman is hitting .315 on the year, just two points behind Pittsburgh's Josh Harrison for the National League lead. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 1:46 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
    Monday, 12:13 pm
  • Pearce has two hits, game-tying RBI in win
    Steve Pearce went 2-for-4 and drove home the tying run with an RBI double in the ninth inning of Sunday's come-from-behind victory over the Yankees.

    Advice: Pearce, who will continue to function as the Orioles primary first baseman for the remainder of the season, is now hitting .290/.365/.532 with 17 homers and 40 RBI over 93 games in what has been a breakthrough season for the 31-year-old. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 8:37 pm
  • Stephen Vogt unlikely to be ready on Tuesday
    Stephen Vogt (ankle) is unlikely to be ready to return for Tuesday's series opener against the Rangers.

    Advice: Vogt has been able to take swings in the batting cages in recent days, but is still bothered too much by his sore ankle to run the bases at full strength. Even if he does return at some point next week, he is likely to play only sporadically which makes it difficult to trust him in weekly formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Moss hits 24th home run in win over Mariners
    Brandon Moss hit his 24th home run of the season in Sunday's win over the Mariners.

    Advice: Moss took Mariners starter Chris Young deep in the seventh inning. It broke a surprising 39-game homerless streak for Moss, whose last jack was July 24. Still in a pretty deep funk, the 30-year-old's line is down to .239/.333/.444 on the year. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 5:24 pm
  • David Ortiz leaves due to family emergency
    David Ortiz left Sunday's game against the Royals to tend to a family emergency.

    Advice: Ortiz has already left to return home to the Dominican Republic. While he may rejoin the Red Sox in Pittsburgh, fantasy owners shouldn't count on him for the first half of the week. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 3:31 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

  • Paul Konerko (hand) hopes to play this week
    Paul Konerko (hand) is hoping to play this week after hitting off a tee with minor discomfort on Sunday.

    Advice: Konerko has a small fracture in his left hand, but with it being his final season he plays to play through some pain in the final weeks. Don't expect more than a handful of token appearances. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • Morse to take BP Monday or Tuesday
    Michael Morse (oblique) won't take batting practice until Monday or Tuesday.

    Advice: Morse had been swinging, but only at about 50 percent. He should return to the lineup shortly if he can swing at full effort Monday or Tuesday, but there are certainly no guarantees that will happen. Morse has yet to play this month due to a strained left oblique. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 8:15 am
  • Morneau (intercostal) expected to return soon
    Justin Morneau (intercostal) is expected to return to the lineup soon.

    Advice: Morneau exited Friday's game with what the Rockies called left intercostal soreness, but trainer Keith Dugger admitted Saturday that the club was "not 100 percent sure it's an intercostal (injury). It's kind of sore behind his left lat. He just has a little soreness. It's not a huge (injury). It's not like an oblique type of soreness. We aren't overly concerned, but we want to make sure he's right before we send him out there." Ben Paulsen started at first base Saturday and should remain there until Morneau is ready. Rotoworld.com

  • Trumbo goes 3-for-5, drives in three vs. Pads
    Mark Trumbo finished 3-for-5 with three RBI as the Diamondbacks beat the Padres 10-4 on Saturday.

    Advice: Trumbo smacked a two-run single in the first inning and later scored on a wild pitch. He then plated Chris Owings on a fielder's choice in the second and doubled in the fifth before singling and scoring again in the eighth. Trumbo seems to be finding a groove now after struggling initially in his return from a fractured foot. Rotoworld.com

    Steve Pearce went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a double against the Yankees on Saturday.

    Advice: It was his 17th homer of the season and his first since August 28. We've been waiting for Pearce to slow down all year, but he now owns an impressive .287/.364/.529 batting line across 93 games. He has gone from a part-time player to a lineup staple. Rotoworld.com

    Ryan Howard is not in the Phillies lineup for Saturday's contest against the Marlins.

    Advice: Cron had been out with a sore wrist. He'll likely head back to the bench versus righty Scott Feldman on Saturday, but he should get another start versus left-hander Dallas Keuchel on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

    Cubs manager Rick Renteria said Friday that Anthony Rizzo (back) is unlikely to play this weekend.

  • Joey Votto (quad) to travel on road trip
    Joey Votto (quad) traveled with the Reds to Milwaukee for their three-city road trip that begins on Friday.

    Advice: It doesn't necessarily mean that he'll be activated at some point during the trip, but there's a chance. Votto has taken ground balls and hit off a tee as he slowly but surely ramps up his activity level. The first baseman has been on the shelf since early July with a distal left quad strain.

    Michael Morse (oblique) is not expected to play this weekend.

    Advice: He's still swinging the bat at only 50 percent. Morse is only 10 days removed from straining his oblique, so his continued absence isn't a surprise even though the Giants had expressed optimism that he could be back by now. He's hit .280/.338/.477 with 16 homers and 61 RBI over 130 games this season. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 4:39 pm
  • Buster Posey propels Giants to win
    Buster Posey went 3-for-5 with an RBI as the Giants beat the Diamondbacks 6-2 on Thursday.

    Advice: It would have been a four-hit day if not for a nice play in the eighth. Even so, Posey is hitting .472 in 36 at-bats this month and .371 with eight homers and 28 RBI in 143 at-bats since the beginning of August. Rotoworld.com

  • Albert Pujols gets first triple since 2010
    Albert Pujols went 3-for-6 with his first triple of the year and a double Wednesday versus the Rangers.

  • Posey drives in a pair of runs in 5-1 victory
    Buster Posey finished 0-for-4 but still drove in a pair of runs in the Giants' 5-1 win against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

    Advice: He grounded into an RBI fielder's choice in the second inning, and lifted a sacrifice fly to left in the sixth to score Angel Pagan. Posey adores Arizona pitching. Even though he didn't hit safely tonight, he came into this game batting .390 with three homers and 14 RBI in his last 15 games versus the Snakes. It wasn't a surprise he scratched out an RBI against Wade Miley, against whom he entered 9-for-20 with a homer and three doubles lifetime. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
  • Michael Morse (oblique) out again Tuesday
    Michael Morse (oblique) remained out of the Giants' lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: The club was hoping Morse would be ready Tuesday after missing a week of action, but obviously he's not. He remains day-to-day. Gregor Blanco is in left field again Tuesday in Morse's place. Rotoworld.com

  • Joey Votto (quad) takes more grounders Tues.
    Joey Votto (quad) took more grounders Tuesday.

    Advice: Votto is slowly but surely easing back into baseball activities. It's still uncertain whether he will be able to return this season. "As you would know, everything will go up incrementally," Reds manager Bryan Price said Tuesday. "When it's going to go up, it's hard for me to say. He's hit off the tee. He's taken groundballs. As the trainers allow, he will increase his workload unless there is a reason not to increase it." 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

  • Matt Adams hits 15th homer in win
    Matt Adams' 15th homer of the year was a three-run shot off the Reds' Logan Ondrusek on Monday.

    Advice: Ondrusek had just entered the game as an injury replacement for Pedro Villarreal. A left-hander would have been a better play for the Reds, but Bryan Price had already used his two lefties not named Aroldis Chapman. Adams' homer was just his fourth in 173 at-bats during the second half. Rotoworld.com

  • Pujols goes 3-for-5 with HR in rout of Tribe
    Albert Pujols finished 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI in Monday's 12-3 rout of the Indians.

    Advice: Pujols was retired in his first two at-bats of the afternoon makeup game, but he singled and scored in the Angels' six-run fifth inning and then did the same in the Angels' two-run seventh inning before launching a three-run bomb in the top of the ninth. Pujols had a huge weekend in Minnesota, collecting his 2,500th career hit and 1,500th career run, and he looks poised to keep the fun going for a while. The veteran slugger boasts has 26 homers and 91 RBI in 141 games this year. Rotoworld.com

    Anthony Rizzo (back) took swings Monday and believes that he could return as soon as this weekend.

    Advice: Rizzo has been out since August 26 with a mild lower back strain. While he still has some hurdles to cross before returning to the lineup, he could still prove useful to fantasy owners this month. Rotoworld.com

  • Miguel Cabrera (ankle) at DH for Tigers Mon.
    Miguel Cabrera is serving as the Tigers' designated hitter on Monday against the Royals.

    Advice: Tigers manager Brad Ausmus acknowledged Sunday night that Cabrera has bone spurs in his right ankle, but that was just after Cabrera had led Detroit to a 6-1 victory over the Giants with a homer and three RBI. Cabrera is going to continue playing through the discomfort before considering surgical options this winter. Rotoworld.com

  • Cabrera homers, plates three to lead Tigers
    Miguel Cabrera homered and drove home three runs, leading the Tigers to a 6-1 victory over the Giants on Sunday.

    Advice: The much-needed victory allowed the Tigers to salvage one game from the three-game weekend set. Cabrera took opposing starter Tim Hudson deep for a two-run homer in the third inning and added on an RBI single in the seventh. Battling through the pain of bone spurs in his ankle, he has been on fire at the dish this week, hitting .500 (15-for-30) with five homers and nine RBI in his last seven games. Rotoworld.com
