Player Notes

  • Gurriel (hamstring) remains out Tuesday night
    Yulieski Gurriel (hamstring) is out of the Astros' starting lineup again on Tuesday night.

    Advice: Gurriel left his MLB debut on Sunday with right hamstring tightness and was limited to pinch-hitting duties on Monday. His status appears to be the same for Tuesday. Alex Bregman is starting at third base and batting second versus Pirates right-hander Ivan Nova. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:05 pm

  • Marlins place Dietrich (knee) on 15-day DL
    Marlins placed 2B Derek Dietrich on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee contusion.

    Advice: The move was made retroactive to August 19. It clears a roster spot for Oswaldo Arcia, who was claimed off waivers from Tampa Bay. Dietrich was an effective hitter before the All-Star break (.303 AVG in 231 at-bats) but has slumped in the second half by hitting only .195 over his last 77 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:10 pm

  • Henry says Red Sox 'need' Pablo Sandoval
    Red Sox owner John Henry told the Boston Herald "we absolutely need" Pablo Sandoval (shoulder) next season.

    Advice: Sandoval has been a complete bust since joining the Red Sox in 2015 and barely played this year because of a shoulder injury. However, with David Ortiz departing Sandoval could have a role next year as the starting DH. Travis Shaw would remain at third base in that scenario with Hanley Ramirez handling first. Of course, if top prospect Yoan Moncada can make a smooth transition to the hot corner, it could create a domino effect with Shaw moving to first and Ramirez sliding in at DH. Sandoval, who has reportedly lost 15 pounds while rehabbing this summer, is under contract through 2019 with a club option for 2020. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:22 am

  • Kyle Seager hits three-run homer in win
    Kyle Seager went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer and a walk in the Mariners' 7-5 defeat of the Yankees on Monday.

    Advice: Seager's .884 OPS is about 100 points better than he's ever done before, and he's two away from matching his career high in homers. It's too bad his brother is getting all of the attention in the family; both have been among the game's top 20 or so position players this year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:38 pm
  • Evan Longoria slugs home run No. 29
    Evan Longoria ripped a two-run homer in Monday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Longo's blast with one out in the ninth inning broke up the shutout, but the Rays were unable to get any closer. The third baseman has now gone deep six times over his last 15 games. It's been quite the bounce-back season in the power department for Longoria. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:50 pm
