  • Jungmann (hip) won't start this weekend
    Taylor Jungmann will not make his final scheduled start this weekend against the Rockies due to hip injury.

    Advice: Jungmann suffered the injury in his most recent start. He'll finish the year with a 7.76 ERA over six starts and two relief appearances. Brent Suter will start on Friday while Wily Peralta will get the nod on Saturday. Rotoworld.com 24 minutes ago

  • Severino limited to around 50 pitches Mon.
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Luis Severino will be limited to around 50 pitches on Monday.

    Advice: Severino has been pitching out of the bullpen this month, but he's making a spot start in place of Masahiro Tanaka (forearm) for Monday's game with the Blue Jays. Most fantasy owners can skip this matchup. Rotoworld.com 54 minutes ago
  • McCullers (elbow) continuing rehab in Florida
    Lance McCullers (elbow) will continue his rehab at the Astros' spring training complex in Kissimmee, Florida.

    Advice: McCullers, out since early August with a mild elbow sprain, was able to make it through a 30-pitch bullpen session on Thursday. The next step will be throwing live batting practice. The Astros would have to make an unlikely run at the playoffs for him to have a chance to make it back this year, but the good news is that he's making progress. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:35 pm

  • Danny Salazar (forearm) throws off mound
    Danny Salazar (forearm) threw 20-plus pitches off the mound on Monday.

    Advice: Salazar threw all fastballs at about 75 percent intensity, but it was a step in the right direction. Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway said "it would be nice" to get him a relief appearance before the playoffs, though it's unclear whether he'll have enough time to do so.

  • De La Rosa to have stem cell treatment
    Rubby De La Rosa will undergo stem cell treatment on his ailing right elbow.

    Advice: De La Rosa went the rest and rehab route with his sprained ulnar collateral ligament, but he's still feeling soreness and tightness in his elbow. This appears to be a last-ditch effort to avoid his second Tommy John surgery. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:07 pm

  • Matz sent for another shoulder checkup
    Steven Matz was sent for another checkup on his shoulder on Monday.

    Advice: Matz was originally expected to make his return to the Mets' rotation this past Friday, but he was scratched after experiencing renewed soreness in his left shoulder. He's not expected to pitch this month and any contribution in the playoffs could also be a stretch, even in a relief role. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:25 pm

  • Marlins activate Adam Conley (finger) off DL
    Marlins activated LHP Adam Conley from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Conley was supposed to return to the Marlins' rotation on Sunday against the Braves, but that game was cancelled following the death of Miami ace Jose Fernandez. The left-handed Conley will now pitch Monday versus the Mets and Bartolo Colon. He missed six weeks with tendinitis in his left middle finger. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:31 pm

  • Jordan Zimmermann could start this weekend
    Jordan Zimmermann could start Saturday at Atlanta.

    Advice: Zimmermann looked sharp in a three-inning relief appearance Sunday versus the Royals, yielding one run while striking out four. He threw 30 of his 35 pitches for strikes. It was the first appearance since September 10 for the 30-year-old right-hander, who has been battling lat trouble since late June. Saturday's game is setting up as a must-win for Detroit. Zimmermann is a risky fantasy play, even against the lowly Braves, because of his limited recent workload. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:53 am
  • Jake Thompson done for the season
    Jake Thompson has been shut down for the year.

    Advice: Thompson allowed three earned runs over four innings Sunday in the Phillies' 17-0 blowout loss to the Mets, leaving him with a 5.70 ERA in 53 2/3 innings for the season. The young right-hander did show some promise in his first taste of the majors -- if you look beyond the ugly overall numbers -- and he should open the 2017 campaign as a member of the Philadelphia starting rotation assuming all goes smoothly next spring. Acquired from the Rangers in last year's Cole Hamels trade, Thompson has a bright future ahead. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:58 am

  • Carlos Martinez logs quality start in loss
    Carlos Martinez logged a quality start in Sunday's loss to the Cubs, allowing just two runs on six hits over his six innings of work.

    Advice: The right-hander walked four and punched out six on the night. He made it through the first four frames unscathed before David Ross belted a solo homer in the fifth inning. Addison Russell then tacked on an RBI double the following inning to complete the damage. Martinez has had an excellent season overall, compiling a 3.15 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 165/69 K/BB ratio over 188 2/3 innings. He'll take his final turn of the regular season on Friday against the Pirates. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:19 pm
  • Clayton Richard pitches well in no-decision
    Clayton Richard pitched well in a no-decision against the Giants on Sunday, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits over six frames.

    Advice: Richard also issued three walks and struck out only one on the afternoon. All of the damage against him came during a three-run rally in the third inning, highlighted by a two-run single from Buster Posey. Inexplicably, Richard has pitched very well since rejoining the Padres, posting a 2.01 ERA over 49 1/3 innings. He'll take on the Diamondbacks in Arizona on the final day of the regular season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:45 pm
  • Marco Estrada superb over seven Sunday
    Marco Estrada limited the Yankees to one run over seven innings but took a no-decision in a 4-3 victory for the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Estrada struck out seven, walked two and yielded just four hits, but one of them was a solo shot by Didi Gregorius to tie things up in the seventh. It was reported earlier this month that Estrada has been pitching through a herniated disc in his back, but the righty has now allowed just one run over his last 14 frames. His regular season concludes next weekend in Boston. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:57 pm

  • Sonny Gray (forearm) to start on Wednesday
    Sonny Gray (forearm) will start on Wednesday against the Angels.

    Advice: Gray has been on the shelf since early August with inflammation in his right forearm, but he's been throwing off a mound for a couple weeks and is ready to test things out in a game. He's expected to go only 1-2 innings in the outing and can be safely avoided in fantasy leagues for the final week. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:06 am
    15-Day DL

  • Gray (forearm) likely to start this week
    Sonny Gray (forearm) said he "threw everything I had and wasn’t holding back" in a 48-pitch live batting practice session Saturday.

    Advice: A's manager Bob Melvin said of Gray that the "fit him in somewhere" this week provided that he feels fine Sunday. The skipped indicated that an appearance from Gray in the final week would be as a starter. Gray holds a 5.74 ERA in 116 innings this season and should be avoided in fantasy leagues this week, but it looks like the righty will be able to go into the winter feeling positive about his health.

  • Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) to see Dr. Andrews
    Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) will visit with Dr. James Andrews on Monday.

    Advice: De La Rosa has tried to pitch through a sprained ulnar collateral ligament but is still feeling soreness and tightness in his elbow. He's already had one Tommy John surgery and it's possible he'll require another. De La Rosa is arbitration-eligible for a second time this winter. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:39 am

  • Kershaw fires seven shutout innings vs Rox
    Clayton Kershaw shut down the Rockies for seven scoreless innings on three hits as the Dodgers won 14-1 on Saturday.

    Advice: He struck out six and didn't walk anybody. It was another vintage Kershaw outing. He improved his record to 12-3 with a remarkable 1.65 ERA. He has punched out 168 batters and walked only 10 in 142 innings. He missed a couple months to a back injury but has returned with a vengeance. With the Dodgers likely to clinch a division title before his next turn, it remains to be seen if Kershaw will get another start in the regular season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:02 pm
  • Bettis pounded for seven runs in 4 2/3 frames
    Chad Bettis was demolished for seven runs -- five earned -- over 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Dodgers on Saturday.

    Advice: He can't blame this one on Coors Field either. He struggled to throw strikes, walking four on 105 pitches in the short and ugly outing. He gave up eight hits and struck out three. Bettis gave up four runs in the second inning, two more in the fourth and was chased after giving up an RBI single to opposing pitcher Clayton Kershaw in the fifth. His record falls to 13-8 with a 4.92 ERA in 179 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:52 pm
  • Rubby De La Rosa unlikely to return in 2016
    Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale conceded that Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) is unlikely to return this season.

    Advice: Momentum was building for a comeback in late September but De La Rosa simply ran out of time. Originally slated for Tommy John surgery after tearing his UCL, De La Rosa chose the rehab route instead. It looks like he'll be fine for spring training next season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:41 pm

  • Conley (finger) to return Sunday vs. Braves
    Adam Conley (finger) will be activated for Sunday's game against the Braves.

    Advice: Conley missed over a month with finger tendinitis but will slot back into the rotation Sunday against Atlanta. With Conley returning, Jose Fernandez will have his start pushed back to Monday. It's been a roller coaster year for Conley, who holds a 3.94 ERA over 24 outings. He's 2-0 with a 0.98 ERA in three starts against Atlanta this season and makes for a nice streaming option on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:07 pm

  • Collins on Matz return: Bullpen or nothing
    Mets manager Terry Collins said if Steven Matz (shoulder) returns this year it will likely be as a reliever.

    Advice: Matz has endured numerous setbacks in his recovery from a strained shoulder and with only a handful of games left in the regular season, there simply isn't enough time to stretch him out. The lefty had been scheduled to pitch Friday against the Phillies but was scratched after feeling renewed shoulder soreness. He hasn't pitched in a game since August 14. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:56 pm

  • Sonny Gray (forearm) to face live hitters
    Sonny Gray (forearm) is scheduled to throw a live batting practice session on Saturday.

    Advice: The right-hander has been sidelined since early August due to inflammation in his right forearm, but has yet to give up hope on a return this season. He could make a start in the final week of the season, though he's probably best avoided for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:59 am
    15-Day DL

  • Zimmermann to throw sim game on Monday
    Jordan Zimmermann is scheduled to throw a simulated game on Monday.

    Advice: He's still trying to correct his ills on the side without effecting the Tigers in live game action. Until he gets his mechanics back in order, it would be surprising to see him make another start for the Tigers as they push for a wild card berth. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:52 am
  • Salazar (forearm) plays catch from 90-100 ft.
    Danny Salazar (forearm) played catch from 90-100 feet Friday.

    Advice: He'll then progress to 120 feet. There's no word yet on when he might be ready for a bullpen session, but it can't be too far off. While Salazar does appear to be making some progress, he won't be ready prior to the postseason and even if he returns then it will surely be in a relief role. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:57 pm

  • Jordan Zimmermann says he feels 'good'
    Jordan Zimmermann said Thursday that he feels "good" but admitted he's "a little inconsistent" when throwing out of the windup.

    Advice: Zimmermann has thrown a couple simulated games as he tries to get his mechanics in order. "I feel good," he said. "My body and everything feels good. I feel really good out of the stretch. The wind-up is the only thing, and I still throw pretty well out of the wind-up. It’s just a little inconsistent, which I guess is expected when I got down three times and build back up three times." Zimmermann added that he feels like "I can go out there and compete and pitch," but the Tigers will have him throw another simulated game Monday. It's possible he could make a start in Atlanta during the final weekend of the season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:14 am
  • Lance McCullers (elbow) throws 'pen session
    Lance McCullers (elbow) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Thursday.

    Advice: The session went off without a hitch. McCullers isn't going to make it back before the end of the regular season, but it's possible he could return if the Astros make a playoff run. The young right-hander has been out since early August with a mild elbow sprain. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:44 pm

  • Matz (shoulder) scratched from Friday start
    Steven Matz has been scratched from Friday's start versus the Phillies after feeling renewed soreness in his left shoulder.

    Advice: Matz got through a bullpen session Wednesday with no issues, but his shoulder didn't rebound as hoped on Thursday. He's almost surely done for the season now, although Mets general manager Sandy Alderson didn't rule out the lefty out when addressing the issue Thursday. Gabriel Ynoa will now start against the Phillies. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:13 pm

  • Jordan Zimmermann set for another sim game
    Jordan Zimmermann is scheduled to throw another simulated game on Monday.

    Advice: Zimmermann hasn't looked sharp in his last two sim games, and he might have to really impress in this one Monday to get an appearance in the final week. The right-hander missed all of July and most of August with a lat injury and he gave up six runs in one official inning September 10 against the Orioles. That was his last outing for Detroit. He's made just one other appearance (August 4) since June 30. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:14 am
  • Taylor Jungmann set to start against Reds
    Taylor Jungmann is scheduled to start against the Reds on Saturday.

    Advice: Jungmann last made a start with the Brewers at the end of April. In 22 2/3 innings with the big league club this season, he holds an 8.34 ERA. While he has not allowed a run in his two bullpen appearances since being called up earlier this month, there is no fantasy upside here. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:18 pm

  • Steven Matz (shoulder) on track for Friday
    Steven Matz (shoulder) threw a successful bullpen session on Wednesday.

    Advice: "[Matz] looked very good," said manager Terry Collins. "He looked nice and easy." Barring a sudden setback, Matz is expected to start against the Phillies on Friday in an outing that probably won't push beyond 50 pitches. The young left-hander has been on the shelf since the middle of August with a mild shoulder strain. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:12 pm

  • Salazar (forearm) played catch again on Wed.
    Danny Salazar (forearm) played catch from a distance of 75 feet on Wednesday.

    Advice: That comes after he threw from a distance of 60 feet on Tuesday. Salazar is hoping to expand to 90 feet on Thursday and 105-120 feet this weekend before possibly returning to mound work sometime next week. The right-hander has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2016 regular season due to a mild strain of his right flexor musculature, but he could be an option in relief for the ALDS.

  • Jake Thompson labors but picks up win
    It wasn't pretty but Jake Thompson picked up a victory Tuesday, yielding three runs over five innings in a 7-6 win over the White Sox.

    Advice: Thompson had trouble controlling his offspeed stuff, and it cost him in the third inning when he hung a changeup to Melky Cabrera and the outfielder hit it into the seats for a three-run homer. Those were the only runs he allowed, but he walked three on the night and struck out just one. Thompson will take the win but will hope he pitches better Sunday in New York versus the Mets. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:14 pm

  • Zimmermann did not look sharp in sim game
    Tigers manager Brad Ausmus offered an underwhelming review of Jordan Zimmermann's simulated game Tuesday afternoon at Target Field.

    Advice: "About the same as the other day," said Ausmus. "He feels fine, he feels healthy, he just feels inconsistent with his mechanics. I think he’s a little frustrated that he can’t get his mechanics working more consistently." Zimmermann allowed six runs in one official inning of work September 10 against the Orioles after missing all of July and most of August with a lat injury. It doesn't sound like he'll be cleared to rejoin the Tigers' rotation anytime soon. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:09 pm
  • Gray (forearm) throws 48-pitch 'pen session
    Sonny Gray (forearm) threw a 48-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday afternoon.

    Advice: Gray is now scheduled to face live hitters over the weekend. He could make a start for the A's in the final week of the regular season, but the right-hander will be on a pitch count in that one and not worth using in a down-to-the-wire fantasy league. Gray, out since early August with forearm inflammation, holds an ugly 5.74 ERA in 116 innings this year. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:23 pm
    15-Day DL
    7:05 pm @LAA
     
  • Jordan Zimmermann throws sim. game
    Jordan Zimmermann threw a successful 68-pitch simulated game on Tuesday afternoon.

    Advice: He retired the final six batters he faced, three via strikeout. Zimmermann was lit up for six runs in one official inning of work September 10 against the Orioles and hasn't appeared in a live game since. It's not clear what the plan is next, though there is some chatter about him making a start this weekend against the Royals. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:17 pm
  • Salazar (forearm) played catch on Tuesday
    Danny Salazar (forearm) played catch from a distance of 60 feet on Tuesday.

    Advice: Salazar was diagnosed with a mild strain of his right flexor musculature last week. He's not going to make another start this year, but the Indians are hopeful that he could be available as a reliever as soon as the ALDS. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:38 pm

  • Steven Matz (elbow) expects to start Friday
    Steven Matz (elbow) said Tuesday that he feels great and expects to start Friday against the Phillies.

    Advice: Matz, out since August 14 due to a mild shoulder strain, is scheduled to travel back to New York to throw a bullpen session on Wednesday. If all goes well, he'll be cleared to make his return on Friday, though Mets manager Terry Collins indicated Monday that he'd likely be limited to around 50 pitches for his first start back.

  • Marco Estrada dominates Mariners in win
    Marco Estrada allowed just one hit over seven scoreless innings and struck out eight in defeating the Mariners on Monday.

    Advice: Estrada was lifted after walking Leonys Martin on four pitches to start the eighth. The Jays got through that frame unscathed, but barely held on to win 3-2 in the ninth after Martin homered. Estrada is 9-9 with a 3.62 ERA. He's struck out 154 in 164 innings this year. During his fantastic 2015 season, he struck out just 131 in 181 innings. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:52 pm
    4:07 pm vs NYY
     
  • Clayton Kershaw strong against Giants
    Clayton Kershaw allowed just an unearned run and three hits over six innings Monday against the Giants.

    Advice: The run scored after an infield single, a steal with a throwing error that allowed the runner to go to third and then a wild pitch. Kershaw, though, was Kershaw; he struck out seven and walked one in the 88-pitch outing. He should be ready to throw 100 pitches next time out. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:39 pm
  • Clayton Richard earns win against Arizona
    Clayton Richard yielded two runs in 6 1/3 innings Monday in a win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Richard has been a really nice stopgap for the Padres, who signed him because they didn't want to rush unready pitching prospects into their rotation this summer. He's 3-2 with a 1.87 ERA in seven starts and two relief appearances for the team. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:26 pm
  • Carlos Martinez picks up 15th victory Monday
    Carlos Martinez lasted just five frames but notched his 15th win over the season Monday, allowing two runs in a 5-3 victory over the Rockies.

    Advice: Martinez needed 102 pitches to cover his five innings and it looked like he might not last that long. After hitting a two-run double in the fourth and then scoring on a single, Martinez needed oxygen in the dugout and then still didn't look right when he came back out for the bottom of the frame, needing a visit from the trainer. He gutted it out, though, and the Cards' bullpen provided good work over the next four innings. Martinez will take on the Cubs at Wrigley in his next start. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:56 pm
  • McCullers (elbow) close to throwing off mound
    Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said Monday that Lance McCullers (elbow) will throw off the mound in the next couple of days.

    Advice: It's good news, though obviously a return this year is probably unrealistic at this point. Perhaps if the Astros make the playoffs. McCullers has been out since early August with a mild elbow sprain. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:59 pm

  • Sonny Gray (forearm) set for bullpen Tue.
    Sonny Gray (forearm) is scheduled to throw 30 pitches in his bullpen session on Tuesday.

    Advice: The Athletics haven't officially ruled him out for the year, but he won't be worth adding in fantasy leagues even if he manages to return. Gray has been out since early August with a muscle strain and inflammation in his forearm. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:42 pm

  • Steven Matz (shoulder) could return Friday?
    Steven Matz (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday in Florida.

    Advice: If it goes well, he may be cleared to return to the Mets' rotation Friday night against the Phillies. But nothing is set in stone, and he'd probably be on a pitch count in that one. "We’re just taking it step-by-step," Matz told Newsday on Monday. "I don’t know. I’m throwing, I’m throwing off the mound. I feel good. I feel really good. It’s just a matter of building up pitches and being able to compete in the big leagues. That’s kind of what we’re evaluating now." The young lefty hasn't appeared in a game for the Mets since August 14 due to a mild shoulder strain. Rotoworld.com Sep 19, 12:11 pm

  • Kershaw on pitch count of 90-100 on Monday
    Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times says Clayton Kershaw will be on a pitch count of 90-100 on Monday night against the Giants.

    Advice: That's a nice increase for Kershaw, who threw 64 pitches over five scoreless innings in his second start off the disabled list last Wednesday versus the Yankees. The ace left-hander is an obvious must-play the rest of the way after missing more than 10 weeks with a herniated disc in his back. He owns a dominant 1.81 ERA, 0.73 WHIP, and 155/9 K/BB ratio in 129 total innings this season. Rotoworld.com Sep 19, 9:55 am
  • Chad Bettis defeats Padres to win 13th game
    Chad Bettis picked up his 13th victory of the season on Sunday, limiting the Padres to three runs on five hits over 5 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Bettis punched out three and issued just one walk on the afternoon. He allowed just a solo home run to Adam Rosales through the first five innings, then the Padres tacked on a pair while chasing him in the sixth. He'll carry a 4.79 ERA and 1.37 WHIP into Saturday's start against the Dodgers in Los Angeles. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 4:36 pm
  • Sonny Gray (forearm) to throw off mound
    Sonny Gray (forearm) will throw another bullpen session Tuesday.

    Advice: Gray has been on the shelf since early August with a muscle strain and inflammation in his forearm, but he's not giving up hope for a late-season return. However, given how poorly he pitched before being hurt, fantasy owners have no incentive to wait around for the righty. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 11:01 am

  • Steven Matz (shoulder) to rejoin Mets in NYC
    Steven Matz (shoulder) is expected to rejoin the Mets in New York this week.

    Advice: Matz has been throwing at the club's spring training complex in Florida. There's a good chance the left-hander will return at some point this week, although no final decision has been made yet. If Matz does make a start this week, he'll be limited from a pitch count perspective. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 8:53 am

  • Jordan Zimmermann to throw another sim game
    Jordan Zimmermann will throw another 80-pitch simulated game on Tuesday.

    Advice: Zimmermann was rocked by the Orioles a week ago and the Tigers have held him out of the rotation since then. It's unclear when he'll be given another start, but it could be next weekend if Tuesday's simulated game goes well. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 7:55 am
  • Rubby De La Rosa might not be shut down
    Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Saturday that Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) might pitch again this season after all.

    Advice: The D'Backs announced Thursday that De La Rosa would be shut down, but Hale reversed course Saturday, saying the righty could pitch again if he shows improved command in bullpen sessions and in a simulated game. De La Rosa missed 3 1/2 months due to a sprained UCL and looked off in two appearances this month, but the club thinks his issues are more mental than physical. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 6:47 am

  • Matz (shoulder) to throw full 'pen Saturday
    Steven Matz (shoulder) will throw a full bullpen session on Saturday.

    Advice: It will come after Matz threw a 20-pitch bullpen session on Wednesday with no issues. If the left-hander gets through Saturday's session without any problems, he should be cleared to rejoin the Mets' rotation sometime next week. Matz hasn't started since August 14 due to a left shoulder impingement. Rotoworld.com Sep 16, 1:11 pm

  • Rubby De La Rosa being shut down for year
    Due to lingering health concerns, Rubby De La Rosa will not pitch again this season.

    Advice: De La Rosa was just activated from the 60-day disabled list on September 9. He had previously been sidelined by a sprained UCL in his right elbow. While he did make two appearances after being activated, manager Chip Hale did not like what he saw in those outings and the Diamondbacks have decided it would be best not to risk further injury. De La Rosa will continue to throw, but his 2016 season has been put to rest. He finished the abbreviated campaign holding a 4.26 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 54/20 K/BB ratio over 50 2/3 innings.
