Player Notes

  • Vogelsong struggles in 2 2/3, earns a ND
    Ryan Vogelsong couldn't make it out of the third inning, giving up four runs in 2 2/3 innings but got a no-decision as the Giants toppled the Royals in Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday.

    Advice: Vogelsong had no issue with the Royals in the first two frames, but they hung a four-spot on him in the top of the third, chasing him from the game in the process. It's worth noting that Vogelsong wasn't hit particularly hard; rather, the Royals used their speed and favorable hit placement. Overall, Vogelsong gave up the four runs on seven hits and a walk with two strikeotus. The Giants will go with Madison Bumgarner in Game 5, then Jake Peavy and Tim Hudson in Games 6 and 7 so Vogelsong is likely done starting. He could contribute out of the bullpen. Rotoworld.com

  • Pence's 3 RBI aid in Game 4 rout of Royals
    Hunter Pence had a terrific night at the plate in the Giants' rout of the Royals in Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday, finishing 3-for-5 with a double, three RBI, and two runs scored.

    Advice: Pence has had a terrific World Series thus far. Saturday's performance brings his series average up to .467 (7-for-15). He has two doubles, a home run, five RBI, and four runs scored. He knocked in the Giants' first run with a fielder's choice in the first inning, then added an RBI single in the fifth and an RBI double in the seventh. Rotoworld.com

  • Vargas goes only four innings in no-decision
    Jason Vargas surrendered three runs over four-plus innings in a no-decision as the Royals fell to the Giants in Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday.

    Advice: The 31-year-old left-hander was hittable from the start, as the Giants were able to scratch out a first-inning run and tacked on one more in the third inning. Vargas gave up a lead-off double to Joe Panik to begin the fifth inning before manager Ned Yost lifted him from the game. On 82 pitches, Vargas yielded the three runs on six hits and two walks with three strikeouts. It's likely the last start Vargas will make until next season, though he could pitch in relief at some point for the Royals in Games 5, 6, and potentially 7. Rotoworld.com

  • Phillies activate Cliff Lee from 60-day DL
    Phillies activated LHP Cliff Lee from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The 36-year-old left-hander was shelved in late-July due to a continuance of a flexor pronator strain in his pitching elbow. He was able to avoid surgery, getting treated instead with platelet-rich plasma injections. He's on track to begin a throwing program in November, though a possible recurrence of this issue certainly needs to be factored in when thinking of calling Lee's name in fantasy drafts.

  • Phillies activate Mario Hollands from DL
    Phillies activated LHP Mario Hollands from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Nothing more than a procedural move here that puts Hollands back on the team's 40-man roster. The 26-year-old southpaw was shut down in early September due to a flexor strain in his pitching elbow after posting a 4.40 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 35/21 K/BB ratio in 47 frames. Rotoworld.com
