  • Edwin Escobar recalled from Triple-A
    Red Sox recalled LHP Edwin Escobar from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Esocobar tossed a scoreless relief inning last month in his major league debut before being sent back down. He'll give the Red Sox some bullpen length down the stretch. Rotoworld.com

  • Heath Hembree recalled from Triple-A
    Red Sox recalled RHP Heath Hembree from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Hembree has been up for a couple brief stints with the big club previously but has spent most of the year at Triple-A, putting up a 3.72 ERA with 55 strikeouts over 46 frames. He'll be used in middle relief. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • Blake Treinen to make spot start Wed.
    Blake Treinen will make a spot start on Wednesday against the Braves.

    Advice: The Nationals are rolling out their "B" squad a day after clinching the National League East. Treinen hasn't thrown more than two innings since his August 26 start at Triple-A Syracuse, when he tossed 4 2/3 frames. However, he does have a 2.18 ERA over 41 1/3 frames in the majors this season and isn't a bad streaming option in deeper formats against a struggling Braves offense. Rotoworld.com

  • Gio Gonzalez scratched from Wednesday's start
    Gio Gonzalez has been scratched from Wednesday's start against the Braves.

    Advice: The Nationals clinched the National League East Tuesday, so they'll give the ball to Blake Treinen Wednesday and give Gonzalez some extra rest. The Nats will also undoubtedly have many backups in the lineup, which is good news for Braves starter Alex Wood. Gonzalez will now presumably get the ball on Thursday in Miami instead. Rotoworld.com

  • Blaine Boyer (shoulder) to throw 'pen session
    Blaine Boyer (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session on Wednesday.

    Advice: Boyer hasn't pitched since September 4 due to right shoulder fatigue, but he could be cleared to return soon if Wednesday's session goes well. He's been a nice find for the Padres this season, holding a 3.05 ERA and 29/8 K/BB ratio over 38 1/3 relief innings. Rotoworld.com

  • Brad Peacock (back) to rejoin rotation Friday
    Brad Peacock (back) will rejoin the Astros' rotation on Friday against the Mariners.

    Advice: Peacock had Monday's scheduled outing pushed back due to lower back tightness, but he's recovered nicely since then, throwing a successful bullpen session Tuesday. "I felt really good actually," Peacock said. "I let it go and it felt good, so they're putting me in on Friday." Peacock holds a 2.90 ERA with 29 strikeouts over 31 innings across his last six starts. He's worth using in AL-only formats. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 7:15 am
  • Carroll (fingernail) expected to make start
    Scott Carroll (fingernail) is expected to be OK to make his next scheduled start on Tuesday.

    Advice: Carroll dealt with a cracked fingernail in his last outing, but White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Tuesday that the righty "looks OK." If it turns out Carroll can't go, it's possible the club will move up Chris Sale to start, which would give him an extra outing as he pursues the AL Cy Young award. Rotoworld.com

  • Eddie Butler recalled from Double-A
    Rockies recalled RHP Eddie Butler from Double-A Tulsa.

    Advice: Butler will start for the Rockies on Saturday. The righty struggled in his major league debut back in June and hasn't posted overly impressive numbers in the minors this season (3.99 ERA, just 69 strikeouts over 117 1/3 innings). However, he remains a top pitching prospect and might be worth a flier in NL-only formats. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 5:41 am
  • C.J. Riefenhauser recalled from Triple-A
    Rays recalled LHP C.J. Riefenhauser from Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Riefenhauser has spent almost all season at Triple-A Durham, holding a 1.40 ERA while striking out 53 across 57 2/3 innings. He'll give the Rays another lefty option in the bullpen. Rotoworld.com

  • Rasmus doesn't allow a run across 4 innings
    Cory Rasmus fired four shutout innings against the Mariners on Tuesday.

    Advice: Rasmus only allowed one hit and no walks in the mini-gem, striking out four. Instead of doing the predictable thing and trading for a mediocre starter to fill Garrett Richards' old rotation spot, Angels manager Mike Scioscia decided to make the turn a bullpen day, always to be kicked off by Rasmus. This was Rasmus' fourth consecutive start, and he hasn't thrown more than 49 pitches in any of them (43 tonight). Rasmus (2.57 ERA) has a nice matchup on deck with the Rangers coming to town, but don't expect him to pitch long enough to have a shot at a win. Rotoworld.com

  • Kennedy allows 3 runs in victory over Phills
    Ian Kennedy improved to 11-13 after surrendering three runs across six innings as the Padres beat the Phillies on Tuesday.

    Advice: Kennedy struck out seven and walked four, racing to 111 pitches before Bud Black's hook came. On the bright side, he snapped a two-start losing streak; in those outings, he gave up double-digit hits in consecutive starts for the first time. Now sporting a 3.80 ERA and 1.32 WHIP, Kennedy welcomes San Francisco to town on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • SP Burnett coughs up 4 ER to Padres in loss
    A.J. Burnett coughed up five runs -- four earned -- in 5 2/3 innings Tuesday as the Phillies fell to the Padres.

    Advice: Burnett struck out four, walked four, and gave up eight hits, one of which was a two-run homer by Alexi Amarista. For whatever reason, Burnett had all kinds of trouble with San Diego's slap-hitting infielder. This start was actually a bit better than his most recent work, as the veteran had gone 2-7 with a 5.68 ERA in his last nine starts. Burnett's next outing takes place in Oakland on Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:26 pm
  • Tepesch allows 3 runs, hangs on to beat A's
    Nick Tepesch yielded three earned runs in six innings Tuesday in a victory over the A's.

    Advice: Tepesch wasn't impressive -- striking out one and walking two -- but Scott Kazmir languished across the way, allowing him to hang in there for a victory. He hadn't secured one of those since August 6, a string of six starts. Tepesch's overall numbers remain poor (5-11, 4.47 ERA), but he had a 3.89 ERA in seven starts since the beginning of August entering tonight's game. The 25-year-old squares off against the Angels this weekend. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:12 pm
  • Kazmir shaky in setback against the Rangers
    Scott Kazmir was punted around for six runs -- four earned -- on nine hits over 4 1/3 innings Tuesday in the A's 6-3 loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: Kazmir got through the first three innings without a hitch, but things fell apart in the fourth, when Jake Smolinski's two-run homer kicked off a three-run frame. After three of the first four batters reached in the fifth inning, Bob Melvin had seen enough. This start continues a disturbing trend. Even coming off a complete game against the White Sox in which he allowed just one run, Kazmir had gone 0-3 with an 8.20 ERA over his last four starts. Many owners don't have a better option to replace him with, so hope for the best when Kazmir (3.44 ERA) hosts Philadelphia on Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:11 pm
  • Putnam throws scoreless ninth for fifth save
    Zach Putnam was called on to close out the Royals Tuesday, pitching a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save.

    Advice: A day after Jake Petricka took his fourth blown save, it was Putnam, with Petricka backing him up, who was brought in for the save chance. Putnam responded by inducing three ground ball outs to end the game. Given that Petricka was throwing in the bullpen it's fair to wonder how manager Robin Ventura views the ninth inning currently. Putnam is the less sexy player from a numbers standpoint -- he has just 44 strikeouts in 54 innings of work this season -- but his 2.00 ERA and 1.07 WHIP suggest he's capable of getting the job done if asked. Owners looking for saves should invest in both relievers until some clarity is gained. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:53 pm
  • Rosenthal takes sixth blown save vs. Brewers
    Trevor Rosenthal allowed a run on a hit and two walks Tuesday, suffering the blown save against the Brewers.

    Advice: Rosenthal was erratic from the start, walking Jonathan Lucroy before allowing a double by Aramis Ramirez on a hanging changeup. He wouldn't allow another hit in the inning, sandwiching an intentional walk between three outs, but a sacrifice fly from Matt Clark tied the game and saddled Rosenthal with his sixth blown save of the year. It was mild as far as blown saves go, but it was disappointing after Rosenthal appeared to be in command while earning his 44th save Sunday. Still, he's the guy in the ninth inning for the Cardinals from here out, for better or worse. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:39 pm
  • Casilla shuts out the lights against Arizona
    Santiago Casilla earned his 16th save of the season Tuesday by tossing a 1-2-3 ninth inning against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: He induced a Mark Trumbo ground out, whiffed Miguel Montero swinging, and got Cliff Pennington to pop out to center. Casilla had given up runs in three of his last five outings. Even so, he boasts a 1.86 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 41/15 K/BB ratio over 53 1/3 innings. Casilla is 16-for-20 in save conversions. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:33 pm
  • Rodriguez closes out Cardinals for 42nd save
    Francisco Rodriguez pitched a scoreless 12th inning to earn the save against the Cardinals Tuesday.

    Advice: K-Rod was asked to retire Matt Adams, Jhonny Peralta and Yadier Molina, and he needed just 11 pitches to accomplish the feat. His 42 saves are the most in a season since he saved 62 games in 2008. The 32-year-old owns a 3.14 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 72/17 K/BB ratio over 66 innings this year. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:31 pm
  • Lynn holds Brewers to one run in no-decision
    Lance Lynn held the Brewers to just one run over seven innings but settled for a no-decision Tuesday.

    Advice: Lynn gave up just five hits and a walk on the evening, with Gerardo Parra's solo home run in the fourth inning serving as the Brewers' only run against him. He exited in line for his 16th win before a Trevor Rosenthal blown save left him without a hand in the decision. Still, it was another terrific outing from the 27-year-old. Lynn owns a 15-9 record and 2.68 ERA heading into Sunday's contest against the Reds. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:27 pm
  • Peavy holds the Snakes to 1 run in 7+ frames
    Jake Peavy worked 7 2/3 innings and allowed only one run in Tuesday's victory over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Peavy, who struck out four and walked one, is on fire right now. His Giants tenure didn't start out the best, you may recall. He went 0-3 with a 4.82 ERA and received only six runs of support total in his first three starts with San Francisco, but the right-hander came into play today 5-1 with a 1.12 ERA over his last six starts, getting an average of 6.92 runs per game of support. He only got two runs tonight, but that turned out to be the perfect number. Peavy, who has a 2.16 ERA overall with the Giants, has a big road start on deck against the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:26 pm
  • Peralta stumbles early, recovers vs. Cards
    Wily Peralta allowed two early runs but recovered to hold the Cardinals to just those two runs over seven innings in a no-decision Tuesday.

    Advice: It couldn't have started much worse for Peralta, as the Cardinals strung together three straight singles to lead off the game. He then walked Matt Adams to bring in a run, but a Jhonny Peralta double play and a weak groundout from Yadier Molina limited the damage. Peralta then straightened it out, giving up just two hits over the next six innings. He remains 16-10 with a 3.70 ERA on the year, and Peralta will look to improve on those numbers Sunday at the Pirates. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:24 pm
  • Collmenter works 8 innings in loss to Giants
    Josh Collmenter painted eight innings of two-run ball but took the loss in Tuesday's 2-1 setback against the Giants.

    Advice: Collmenter pitched beautifully, but unfortunately he had to lock horns with a dealing Jake Peavy. The right-hander only struck out one, but he didn't walk a batter. He's only four earned runs and 14 hits across 35 2/3 innings in his last five starts, good for a 1.01 ERA. Collmenter (10-8, 3.60 ERA) has a nice matchup on deck with a date versus the Twins in Minnesota. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:23 pm
  • Haren touched for five runs in loss to Rox
    Dan Haren allowed five runs over five innings in a loss to the Rockies on Tuesday.

    Advice: Haren actually gave up just four hits, but the Rockies managed to turn them into five runs. The line looks bad, but it was Haren's first loss since August 17, and the right-hander is still 13-11 with a 4.14 ERA after a string of above-average starts. Haren will try to get back in the win column at the Cubs on Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Morton fires 5 shutout frames in his return
    Charlie Morton returned to the Pirates' rotation and hurled five shutout innings in Tuesday's 4-0 defeat of the Red Sox.

    Advice: Morton had missed a month dealing with a sports hernia but didn't seem too bothered by it against the Red Sox. The right-hander scattered four hits and a pair of walks while striking out six. He'll go into the latter half of September with a 3.72 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 126/57 K/BB ratio. Morton will make a home start against the Brewers on Sunday in his next outing. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:49 pm
  • Eddie Butler to start on September 23
    Eddie Butler will be recalled to start on September 23 against the Padres.

    Advice: Butler was optioned to the minors in July after recovering from his shoulder injury, but the Rockies are now ready to give him another shot. It's not clear whether he'll be given just the one start or an addition one before the end of the season. Butler was limited to just 122 2/3 frames between the majors and minors because of the shoulder ailment. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:16 pm
  • Rosenthal strikes out side to earn 44th save
    Trevor Rosenthal struck out the side in the ninth inning Sunday, earning the save against the Rockies.

    Advice: Rosenthal looked as good as he has all season in the save, hitting triple digits on the radar gun and finishing off Charlie Blackmon with a changeup to end the game. Rosenthal has 44 saves on the year to go with a 3.22 ERA and 85/39 K/BB ratio over 67 innings this year. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 4:21 pm
  • Brad Peacock sidelined with back injury
    Brad Peacock will not make his scheduled start on Monday against the Indians due to lower back tightness.

    Advice: He could rejoin the rotation at some point in the final weeks, but there's no timetable for his return. The Astros had been going with six starters, so they'll just return to a regular five-starter setup for now. Collin McHugh will move up to start on Monday and is now in line for a two-start week. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 11:04 am
  • Charlie Morton to rejoin rotation on Tuesday
    Charlie Morton (sports hernia) will rejoin the Pirates' rotation on Tuesday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Morton is dealing with a sports hernia that will require surgery after the season, but he'll try to gut it out in the final weeks. Vance Worley will move to the bullpen to accommodate him. Morton holds a 3.84 ERA and 1.27 WHIP across 25 starts this season. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 8:11 am
  • Blaine Boyer (shoulder) to throw 'pen session
    Blaine Boyer (shoulder) could throw a bullpen session this week.

    Advice: Boyer hasn't pitched since September 4 due to right shoulder fatigue. He's hoping to make it back before the end of the season. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 8:06 am
  • Gonzalez takes loss against Mets
    Gio Gonzalez fell to 8-10 after giving four runs (three earned) over 6 2/3 innings Friday against the Mets.

    Advice: It was his first loss since August 10. Gonzalez allowed six hits and one walk, with the big blow coming on Travis d'Arnaud doubled which plated three runs (one of them on an error). The southpaw fanned seven and walked one in the loss and now has a 3.79 ERA and 145/54 K/BB ratio in 144 2/3 innings over 25 starts. He'll try to get back in the win column next week with a road start against the Braves. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:32 pm
  • Francisco earns 41st save in win vs. Marlins
    Francisco Rodriguez worked a 1-2-3 ninth inning, earning his 41st save of the season as the Brewers emerged victorious over the Marlins on Thursday.

    Advice: Rodriguez has struggled recently, but he had no problems cutting through the bottom of the Marlins' order on Thursday, fanning pinch-hitter John Baker to end the contest. K-Rod is 41-for-46 in save opportunities with a 3.23 ERA and a 71/15 K/BB ratio in 64 innings this season. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 9:14 pm
  • Rasmus makes another spot start for Halos
    Cory Rasmus made another spot start for the Angels and took a no-decision, allowing one run over 3 1/3 innings against the Rangers on Thursday.

    Advice: Rasmus has been used exclusively as a reliever since A-ball, so he doesn't have the endurance of a typical spot starter. As such, he's lasted a total of eight innings in three starts for the Angels since August 30. Against the Rangers, he yielded only two hits while striking out three and issuing zero walks. He'll bring a 2.80 ERA and a 47/15 K/BB ratio into Tuesday's home start against the Mariners. Rotoworld.com

  • Burnett shaky in 6th, results in 16th loss
    A.J. Burnett fell to 8-16 after yielding four runs over six innings as the Phillies were defeated by the Pirates on Thursday.

    Advice: Burnett becomes the first Phillies pitcher to lose 16 games since Mark Leiter lost 17 in 1997. He was fine until he tired in the sixth inning, relenting three runs. Overall, Burnett gave up six hits and three walks while fanning seven. It's been a forgettable year for the 37-year-old, as he now owns a 4.34 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, and 176/83 K/BB ratio. Burnett will take on the Padres in San Diego on Tuesday next. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 7:48 pm
  • Jake Peavy strikes out eight in victory
    Jake Peavy struck out eight while limiting the Diamondbacks to one run in 5 2/3 innings in Thursday's win.

    Advice: Aside from losing his bat and having it hit third baseman Jake Lamb in his fourth-inning plate appearance, Peavy was pretty sharp today. He is 5-1 with a 1.12 ERA in his last six starts, and he's dragged his season ERA below 4.00. He'll face Arizona again in his next start. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 4:23 pm
  • Scott Kazmir takes loss in 1-0 game
    Scott Kazmir took a tough loss in a 1-0 game Thursday, holding the White Sox to four hits over eight innings in a complete game.

    Advice: It was Kazmir's second complete game of this season and just the third of his career. He had been in the midst of a tough stretch, giving up 16 runs over 10 2/3 innings in his previous three starts, but you never would have known it from his performance today. He'll get the struggling Rangers next time out. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 2:04 pm
  • Lance Lynn goes distance in 1-0 loss
    Lance Lynn took a complete-game loss after giving up one run and three hits in eight innings Thursday against the Reds.

    Advice: That's a tough way for a pitcher to lose his first game in six weeks. For the year, Lynn is 15-9, with the Cardinals having scored a total of nine runs in his losses. Lynn has now allowed three runs or fewer in 13 straight starts. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 12:13 pm
  • Collmenter works 6 SO innings in ND vs. SFG
    Josh Collmenter painted six shutout innings in Wednesday's no-decision against the Giants.

    Advice: Collmenter scattered three hits and struck out three in remaining stuck one win shy of a new career high. He's 2-0 in his last four starts, having held opposing offenses to two earned runs and 14 hits across 27 2/3 innings. The right-hander attributes his recent success locating the ball intelligently and mixing up his pitches. Collmenter (10-7, 3.67 ERA) has a rematch against San Francisco on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:41 pm
  • Haren works 7 shutout frames, beats Padres
    Dan Haren fired seven shutout innings, scattering four hits, to beat the Padres 4-0 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Haren fanned five and issued only one free pass in his fourth straight quality start, and fifth in seven outings. This stretch of dominance comes on the heels of a putrid stretch during which there was media speculation he could lose his rotation spot. Indeed, since losing five straight (10.03 ERA), Haren had gone 4-1 with a 2.04 ERA in his last six outings, including 2-0 with a 0.95 ERA in his last three. A red hot Haren travels to the thin air of Denver to take on the Rockies on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:05 pm
  • Kennedy coughs up 4 runs in loss to Dodgers
    Ian Kennedy surrendered three runs on 10 hits over six innings in another lackluster performance against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Kennedy struck out five and walked one. It wasn't a train wreck of an outing, but Kennedy had no room for error across from a dealing Dan Haren. Kennedy hates facing Los Angeles, coming in this game 0-4 with a 4.91 ERA in his last eight starts against the Dodgers. Make that 0-5 in his last nine. Kennedy (10-13, 3.77 ERA) gets the Phillies next week. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:00 pm
  • Marcell Ozuna notches 16th victory
    Wily Peralta finally picked up his 16th win after limiting the Marlins to one run in 6 2/3 innings Wednesday.

    Advice: Peralta had taken three straight losses since nothing his 15th victory on Aug. 17. He was strong tonight, shutting out the Marlins for six innings prior to Marcell Ozuna's solo homer in the seventh. For the year, he has a 3.75 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP, with 22 homers allowed in 177 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:43 pm
  • Francisco Rodriguez notches 40th save
    Francisco Rodriguez bounced back from Tuesday's meltdown to pitch a scoreless ninth and pick up his 40th save on Wednesday.

    Advice: Rodriguez becomes just the third pitcher ever with five 40-save seasons. Of course, the other two, Trevor Hoffman and Mariano Rivera, both have nine apiece. Still, it's a pretty impressive feat, and at age 32, K-Rod might have one or two more such campaigns left in him. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:40 pm
  • Morton (sports hernia) throws simulated game
    Charlie Morton (sports hernia) threw a five-inning, 86-pitch simulated game Tuesday.

    Advice: The Pirates will meet next Monday to decide what to do with Morton. They could bring him back as a reliever, but manager Clint Hurdle has indicated that he prefers to keep Morton in reserve as a starter should a need arise in the rotation. "Charlie wants to be a part of it. [We'll] keep an active, live arm that might get to a point where he can give us five innings, can throw 85 pitches," Hurdle said. "You can lose a pitcher in a day. You can lose two pitchers in two days. If it gets to a point where the pain plateaus and he starts feeling better, then we'll have another option." Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:02 am
  • K-Rod implodes, takes fifth loss vs. Marlins
    Francisco Rodriguez suffered a major meltdown Tuesday, serving up two home runs and allowing three runs in a loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: K-Rod was tasked with keeping it a tie game in the ninth inning, and he got two outs before walking Giancarlo Stanton. Casey McGehee followed with a two-run home run, and the next batter, Marcell Ozuna, went yard as well. Rodriguez has now surrendered 14 home runs in 62 innings this year, the most homers he's allowed in a single season. He's also allowed runs in four of his last six outings. The Brewers are fading fast in the National League playoff race, and with K-Rod being a free agent after the season it's worth monitoring how manager Ron Roenicke handles the ninth inning over the final three weeks. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:44 pm
  • Peacock holds Seattle scoreless for 5 innings
    Brad Peacock hurled five shutout innings in a Monday no-decision against the Mariners.

    Advice: Peacock struck out six, walked two and scattered four hits. Unfortunately, he was pitching across from Felix Hernandez, so the game was tied 0-0 when Peacock made his way through the Safeco Field bowels to the shower area. The right-hander exorcised his Mariners demons tonight. Peacock came into the night having coughed up eight runs over 11 1/3 innings in two appearances against Seattle this year. Peacock is scheduled to take on the Indians next Monday. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:56 pm
  • Blaine Boyer nursing fatigued shoulder
    Blaine Boyer hasn't pitched since Thursday's due to right shoulder fatigue.

    Advice: He hasn't thrown a ball since then, but Boyer thinks he'll be back soon. "I think we all came to the conclusion that it's just fatigue, fatigue in the back part of my shoulder," Boyer said. "The strength is still there, everything else is fine. It's just a matter of fatigue, as simple as that. The rest has helped. We're doing a lot of treatment." Boyer has been a nice surprise for the Padres this season, posting a 3.05 ERA and 29/8 K/BB ratio over 38 1/3 relief innings. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:55 pm
  • Cory Rasmus to make another start Thursday
    Cory Rasmus will make another start for the Angels on Thursday night against the Rangers.

    Advice: Rasmus was excellent in his first spot start last Saturday, striking out six batters over three scoreless innings against the A's. But he struggled in a similar role this weekend against the Twins and will be a poor fantasy bet versus the Rangers. The Angels are essentially using Rasmus as their fifth starter. Rotoworld.com

  • Gio holds Phillies to one earned in victory
    Gio Gonzalez held the Phillies to two runs -- one earned -- over six innings in a win Sunday.

    Advice: Gio gave up just five hits on the day while striking out three. Most importantly, he didn't walk a batter for the first time all season. The win moved him to 8-9 with a 3.78 ERA overall this season. He'll look to pull his record even when the Nationals visit the Mets on Friday. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 7, 2:18 pm
  • Scott Carroll pitches well in loss
    Scott Carroll took a tough-luck loss Sunday, going seven frames and allowing two runs versus the Indians.

    Advice: Carroll allowed seven hits (six singles) while walking one and striking out one, but he was bested by Carlos Carrasco. The nice effort was Carroll's first quality start since late July. He'll try to keep it going next weekend at home against the Twins. Rotoworld.com
