    • Brewers recalled LHP Chasen Shreve from Triple-A Gwinnett.
      Advice: Shreve allowed one run over five innings of relief earlier this season out of the Atlanta bullpen. He's back up with rosters expanding to serve as left-handed depth.

    • Wei-Yin Chen struck out seven while allowing four runs over 6 2/3 innings in Sunday's win over the Twins.
      Advice: Chen gave up a two-run homer to Trevor Plouffe in the fourth, one of eight hits allowed on the afternoon. Chen has been plenty good this season, owning a 3.83 ERA through 26 starts, but the fact that he's among the league leaders in wins at 14-4 speaks to the fluky nature of the statistic. Even so, Chen and the Orioles will surely take it. The left-hander will square off with the Rays in Tampa on Friday.

    • Orioles optioned LHP Wei-Yin Chen to the Gulf Coast League Orioles.
      Advice: It's just a paper move, as Chen will rejoin the rotation on Sunday. Steve Clevenger has taken his spot on the roster.

    • Wei-Yin Chen got a no-decision despite failing to make it through the fifth inning as the Orioles defeated the Rays 4-2 on Tuesday.
      Advice: Chen didn't have his best stuff on Tuesday, failing to record a strikeout on any of the 22 batters he faced. Overall, he yielded seven hits and three walks. He was lucky to have only allowed the two runs, as Brad Brach bailed him out to finish off the fifth inning. Chen has a 3.76 ERA, a 1.25 WHIP, and a 109/28 K/BB ratio. The lefty, still 13-4, will match up against the Twins at home on Tuesday in his next start.

    • Jacoby Ellsbury (ankle) hit a pinch-hit double in the Yankees' loss to the Blue Jays on Sunday.
      Advice: Ellsbury was held out of the Yankees' starting lineup for a second straight game after injuring his left ankle on a slide into home plate Friday. His double Sunday was obviously a positive sign, but he's going to undergo an MRI so that the Yankees can determine whether he's ready to return to full-time duty in center field.

    • Jacoby Ellsbury (ankle) remained out of the Yankees' lineup Sunday.
      Advice: He's now missed two straight games after injuring his left ankle on Friday. The Yankees are off Monday, so Ellsbury could be ready to go Tuesday following three days of rest.

  • Sat, Aug 30
    • Jacoby Ellsbury (ankle) is not in the Yankees starting lineup on Saturday.
      Advice: Ellsbury was still hobbling around the clubhouse on Saturday after injuring his left ankle while sliding into home plate in the ninth inning on Friday. With an off day scheduled on Monday, the team may just opt to play things cautiously and rest him on Sunday as well to avoid further aggravation.

  • Fri, Aug 29
    • Jacoby Ellsbury went 2-for-5 with a triple and a two-run homer in Friday's 6-3 win over the Blue Jays.
      Advice: The red-hot Ellsbury now has four homers and nine RBI over his last five games. Unfortunately, he hurt his left ankle on a slide into home plate in the ninth inning. Tests came back negative, but he was limping after the game and might not be able to play Saturday.

  • Wed, Aug 27
    • Jacoby Ellsbury had another multi-hit game, going 2-for-4 with a pair of stolen bases in Wednesday's win against the Tigers.
      Advice: Ellsbury was coming off of a two-homer night against the Tigers on Tuesday and has now notched back-to-back-to-back multi-hit games. Ellsbury has 37 steals in 42 attempts with 13 home runs, 61 RBI, and a .285/.347/.423 triple slash line.

  • Tue, Aug 26
    • Jacoby Ellsbury homered twice, both of the solo variety, but the Yankees were unable to overcome the Tigers on Tuesday.
      Advice: Ellsbury finished 3-for-4 on the night, homering the first time in the fifth and the second time in the eighth, both against Rick Porcello. The center fielder is coming off of a 3-for-5 (with a homer) performance on Monday as well. Overall, Ellsbury has 13 home runs, 60 RBI, 35 steals, and a .284/.347/.422 slash line in the first year of his seven-year deal with the Yankees.

    • Jacoby Ellsbury went 3-for-5 with his 11th homer and three RBI against the Royals on Monday.
      Advice: That the Yankees offense has been so mediocre has resulted in Ellsbury being a modest disappointment for fantasy purposes -- he has just 59 runs scored in 126 games -- but he has been a nice player with his .280-11-58-35 line. He's also not one of those basestealers slowing down as the year drags on; he has seven steals in August.

  • Sun, Aug 24
    • Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the Yankees' lineup Sunday.
      Advice: Brett Gardner and Brian McCann are also sitting, as the Yanks are going right-handed hitter heavy versus Chris Sale. Ichiro Suzuki is the only left-handed batter in Sunday's lineup.
