  • Simmons exits with apparent ankle injury
    Andrelton Simmons left Wednesday's game against the Nationals with an apparent ankle injury.

    Advice: The Braves haven't said a reason for his departure, but Atlanta Journal-Constitution beat writer David O'Brien said it appeared Simmons aggravated a previous ankle injury running from first to second base in the first inning. Phil Gosselin replaced Simmons at shortstop, and the Braves should update his situation shortly. Rotoworld.com

    Dustin Ackley went 1-for-3 with a double and two RBI as the Mariners' stomped the Angels 13-2 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Ackley has missed a lot of time recently with bone spurs in his ankle. The injury makes it difficult for him to plant and pivot off the foot. So long as Ackley can tolerate the pain, he'll be in the lineup. He's now slashing .251/.298/.397 through 133 games. Rotoworld.com

  • Amarista finishes a triple short of the cycle
    Alexi Amarista finished 3-for-4 with a double, homer, two RBI and one run scored on Tuesday against the Phillies.

    Advice: He came into this game batting .204 with no extra-base hits in September. So naturally Amarista finishes a triple short of the cycle in Petco, doing most of his damage against Phillies' starter A.J. Burnett. It'll be awhile before you see another performance like this out of Amarista. Even after the monster game, he's batting .242/.292/.313 on the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Escobar has stolen base, two runs against Sox
    Alcides Escobar went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and two runs scored in a loss to the White Sox Tuesday.

    Advice: Escobar, batting leadoff, got on base and scored in the third and sixth innings. The stolen base was his 31st of the year, the second time in his career he's eclipsed the 30-steal benchmark. His single-season high is 35, set in 2012. It's been a strong year for the 27-year-old, who is hitting .275/.308/.363 with 69 runs scored as the Royals' everyday shortstop. Rotoworld.com

  • Hanley (elbow) not expected to play Wednesday
    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly indicated after Tuesday's game that Hanley Ramirez (elbow) was unlikely to play Wednesday.

    Advice: It's no surprise given that it's a day game after a night game. Ramirez was able to pinch-hit Tuesday (striking out), suggesting that his elbow is not at issue at the plate but in the field. Rotoworld.com

  • Altuve sets Astros' single-season hit record
    Jose Altuve went 2-for-5 with a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

    Advice: The line was fairly standard for the diminutive second baseman, but it was noteworthy for the fact that Altuve passed Craig Biggio for the Astros' record for hits in a single season. He's got 211 for the season, and the Astros still have a week and a half for Altuve to pad his lead. The 24-year-old is batting a ridiculous .343/.379/.456 for the year. Rotoworld.com

  • Franklin logs two hits in his Rays debut
    Nick Franklin, making his Rays debut, went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI single in Tuesday's win against the Yankees.

    Advice: The Rays acquired Franklin from the Mariners at the trade deadline in the three-way trade that sent David Price to Detroit. He debuted in style, doubling and scoring in the sixth to break a 1-1, then singling in a run in the seventh as part of a four-run frame. Franklin posted a meager .363 OPS in 52 plate appearances with the Mariners this season, but the Rays are banking on bigger and better things in 2015. Rotoworld.com

  • Phillips provides Reds' only hit in shutout
    Brandon Phillips provided the Reds their only hit as they were shut out by the Cubs 7-0 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Jake Arrieta was five outs from a no-hitter, but Phillips ended the attempt with a double to left-center. He finished 1-for-3 on the night. Phillips is near the end of a dreadful, injury-hampered season, slashing .258/.302/.364 with seven home runs and 48 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Flores homers twice, knocks in 6 as Mets win
    Wilmer Flores had a career night, going 3-for-4 with a double, a pair of home runs, and six runs batted in as the Mets trounced the Marlins on Tuesday.

    Advice: Flores tied the game at 1-1 with a fourth-inning double, then kept adding on with a three-run home run in the fifth and a two-run blast in the seventh, both off of Brad Penny. Flores entered the night with four home runs in 229 plate appearances, so it was certainly an uncharacteristically powerful performance. Along with six homers, Flores has knocked in 28 runs and posted a .245/.280/.386 slash line. Rotoworld.com

  • Desmond powers Nats to clincher over Braves
    Ian Desmond's sixth-inning two-run home run was all of the offense the Nationals needed to clinch the NL East division in a win against the Braves on Tuesday.

    Advice: Desmond finished 2-for-4 with a double as well, but it was his two-run shot in the sixth inning off of Aaron Harang that broke a scoreless tie and helped send the Nationals to their second division title in three seasons. Desmond had been in a bit of an offensive funk, as he hadn't homered since August 29, but he's still sitting on 23 with 88 RBI, 22 stolen bases, and a .252/.308/.423 slash line. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Triple-A Durham finished their International League playoff run Saturday, so Franklin will now get a chance with the big club. The Rays will finish a series in Toronto on Sunday, so Franklin seems likely to join the club on Monday in Tampa. Acquired from the Mariners in the three-team deal in July, Franklin has hit .272/.366/.412 with 11 homers and 11 steals at the Triple-A level this season and should see pretty regular playing time down the stretch.

    Martin Prado's pinch-hit eighth-inning two-run home run helped the Yankees come from behind late to defeat the Rays on Thursday.

  • Altuve goes 2-for-5 with a double and a steal
    Jose Altuve went 2-for-5 with a double and a steal as the Astros edged the Mariners 5-2 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Altuve had gone 0-for-7 in his last two games, snapping a 14-game hitting streak. You could have predicted tonight's mini-slump buster. After all, he is 10-for-24 (.417) over his career against Mariners' starter Hisashi Iwakuma. Altuve is slashing a pristine .336/.373/.447 and his steal tonight gives him 52 total. Rotoworld.com

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

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

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

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

  • Ian Desmond (back) sitting out Wednesday
    Ian Desmond (back) is not in the Nationals' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Desmond had to exit Tuesday's contest with lower back tightness. He told manager Mike Williams that he was ready to go Wednesday, but with a day game on the docket the manager decided to hold him out. Desmond should return to action Thursday. Danny Espinosa is filling in at shortstop Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Gyorko goes 2-for-4 with homer and 2 RBI
    Jedd Gyorko finished 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's 6-3 win against the Dodgers.

    Advice: This was Gyorko's third multi-hit game in his past four games, and his second multi-RBI game during that stretch. This was his first homer since August 19. Mostly due to a rotten start, he's slashing .203/.263/.335 on the year. Rotoworld.com

  • Amarista snaps morbid 0-for-17 streak
    Alexi Amarista snapped an 0-for-17 stretch of futility by going 1-for-4 with a run scored Tuesday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Amarista's calling card is his defense, but even the leather wouldn't keep him in the lineup for most teams. The Padres have always viewed offense as optional, so he makes for a nice fit. Amarista is slashing .234/.285/.298 with three homers over 359 at-bats. Rotoworld.com

  • Altuve hitless in 2 straight since 14-game HS
    Jose Altuve went 0-for-4 with an error in Tuesday's 2-1 win against Seattle

    Advice: Altuve is now 0-for-7 in his last two games; he snapped a 14-game hitting streak with Monday's 0-fer. Regardless, nobody is going to complain about a lack of production from the 24-year-old Venezuelan. Altuve ranks first in the majors with a .336 average, first with 198 hits, and third with 51 steals (first in the AL). Rotoworld.com

  • Ian Desmond nursing lower back tightness
    Ian Desmond left Tuesday's game versus the Braves with lower back tightness.

    Advice: Desmond felt it during pre-game warm-ups and his beck never loosened up. While the shortstop thinks he'll play Wednesday, the Nats seem likely to play it safely and sit him with a day game on the schedule. Rotoworld.com

  • Ian Desmond exits with apparent injury
    Ian Desmond left Tuesday's game versus the Braves with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Desmond didn't suffer any obvious injury, but he was replaced at shortstop by Danny Espinosa after five innings. The Nationals should update his status shortly. Rotoworld.com

  • Ackley (ankle) a few days away from return
    Dustin Ackley remains a few days away from a return after an MRI showed bone spurs in his left ankle.

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

  • Ramirez has 4 hits in victory over San Diego
    Hanley Ramirez went 4-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in a 9-4 victory over the Padres on Monday.

    Advice: He was also caught stealing. Ramirez's RBI single in the first inning kicked off the game's scoring. By the time he touched home plate on Matt Kemp's double in the fifth, the Dodgers led 5-1 en route to a blowout victory. Ramirez came into this game having gone hitless in eight of 12 games since returning from a 15-day stint on the disabled list with a strained oblique. Rotoworld.com

  • Andrelton Simmons goes 0-for-4 in loss
    Andrelton Simmons went 0-for-4 on Monday, leaving him 3-for-27 this month.

    Advice: Simmons hit .289/.298/.489 with three homers through the first month of the season. Since then, he's come in at .228/.280/.294 with four homers in 394 at-bats. Obviously, he still has his outrageous glove working in his favor, but as a fantasy shortstop, he's been quite the disappointment. Rotoworld.com

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

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

    Howie Kendrick went 3-for-4 with a triple, home run and four RBI in the Angels' lopsided 14-4 win over the Twins on Sunday.

    Advice: Kendrick led off the second inning with a solo home run, his sixth of the year. In the fifth, he hit a two-run triple. And he added an RBI single in the seventh. The three-hit effort followed a four-hit game for the 31-year-old, raising his season line to .285/.342/.386. Rotoworld.com

    Ian Desmond went 2-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Phillies.

    Advice: Desmond got to Phillies ace Cole Hamels for both doubles, giving him 21 doubles on the season. It was the first multi-hit game in over a week for Desmond, whose line is down to .248/.304/.417. A streaky hitter, perhaps Sunday was the start of an upswing for the 28-year-old. Rotoworld.com
