    • Buster Posey went 2-for-4 with a homer in the Giants' 2-1 win against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.
      Advice: If you're one of those owners with a meticulous nature, you may have known that Posey against Arizona starter Josh Collmenter was one of the best matchups on the board tonight. Long story short, it cashed, and Posey is now 11-for-18 (.611) with three home runs and a double lifetime against Collmenter. Posey also came into tonight batting .408 with 12 RBI in his last 13 games at Chase Field.

    • Buster Posey went 1-for-4 with an RBI as the Giants fell to the Diamondbacks 6-2 on Monday.
      Advice: He has hit safely in six straight. Posey has knocked in 27 of his 86 RBI in his last 23 games. He's been particularly hot in the season's final month, going 22-for-49 (.449) with two homers and 14 RBI in September. The catcher typically feasts on Rattler pitchers, coming into this one hitting .375 with 17 RBI in his last 18 against Arizona. He's slashing .311/.362/.488 with 20 homers.

    • Buster Posey went 3-for-5 with an RBI as the Giants beat the Diamondbacks 6-2 on Thursday.
      Advice: It would have been a four-hit day if not for a nice play in the eighth. Even so, Posey is hitting .472 in 36 at-bats this month and .371 with eight homers and 28 RBI in 143 at-bats since the beginning of August.

  • Wed, Sep 10
    • Buster Posey finished 0-for-4 but still drove in a pair of runs in the Giants' 5-1 win against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.
      Advice: He grounded into an RBI fielder's choice in the second inning, and lifted a sacrifice fly to left in the sixth to score Angel Pagan. Posey adores Arizona pitching. Even though he didn't hit safely tonight, he came into this game batting .390 with three homers and 14 RBI in his last 15 games versus the Snakes. It wasn't a surprise he scratched out an RBI against Wade Miley, against whom he entered 9-for-20 with a homer and three doubles lifetime.

    • Alex Avila (head) is out of the Tigers' starting lineup again on Tuesday night.
      Advice: Avila took a foul tip off his mask on Sunday, so he was held out Monday and Bryan Holaday will get another start behind the plate Tuesday versus the Twins. Avila has a history of concussions, so the Tigers are going to play it safe with him down the stretch.

    • Alex Avila (head) is not in Monday's lineup against the Twins.
      Advice: Avila left Sunday's game with lightheadedness after taking a foul tip off the mark. The Tigers aren't going to take any chances, given his history. Bryan Holaday will start behind the plate.

    • Alex Avila left Sunday's game against the Indians with lightheadedness.
      Advice: Avila took yet another foul tip off his mask in Sunday's contest. While he didn't display concussion-like symptoms, the Tigers opted to play things cautiously given his history. He is likely to receive an off-day on Monday as well.

  • Sat, Sep 13
    • Alex Avila slugged a go-ahead two-run homer in the Tigers' 5-4 defeat of the Indians on Saturday.
      Advice: Detroit was trailing 4-3 when Avila took Bryan Shaw deep in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was his only hit of the night, but it helped keep the Tigers at the top of the American League Central standings (by a half-game over the Royals). Avila is batting .222/.329/.371 with 11 home runs and 47 RBI in 117 games this season.

    • Alex Avila (head) is in the Tigers starting lineup for Sunday night's contest against the Giants.
      Advice: Avila took a couple of foul tips off his catcher's mask in Tuesday's game and has been held out since. He appeared as a pinch-hitter in Saturday's loss, striking out against Santiago Casilla in the ninth inning.

    • Francisco Cervelli went 2-for-3 at the plate Tuesday in his return to the lineup.
      Advice: Cervelli had been out since September 2 because of migraine headaches. They shouldn't be an issue moving forward.

  • Sun, Sep 14
    • Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Saturday that Francisco Cervelli (migraine headaches) is "getting closer" to returning to action.
      Advice: Cervelli hasn't played since September 2 due to migraine headaches but has been catching in the bullpen. It's been an injury-shortened season for the 28-year-old, as Cervelli missed nearly two months earlier this year with a Grade 2 right hamstring strain.
