  • Blue Jays activate Morrow from 60-day DL
    Blue Jays activated RHP Brandon Morrow from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Morrow has been out since early May with a finger tendon injury, but he's back to full health now and will pitch out of the bullpen in September. The Blue Jays are likely to decline his $10 million option for 2015, so this is an opportunity to prove his health and effectiveness before free agency. Rotoworld.com

  • Goins called up from Triple-A

    Advice: Goins is batting just .197/.22/.262 with one home run and 11 RBI over 132 plate appearances with the Blue Jays this season. He's a strong defender, but can be ignored in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Cards leaning towards starting Gonzales
    Jim Hayes of Fox Sports Midwest hears that the Cardinals are leaning toward starting Marco Gonzales against the Brewers on Thursday.

    Advice: Gonzales would take the spot of Justin Masterson in the starting rotation. It makes sense, as the southpaw tossed six innings of one-run ball in a spot start against the Cubs on Saturday. Still, he's a risky option in mixed fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Giants recall OF Brown from Triple-A
    Giants recalled OF Gary Brown from Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Brown was once considered among the game's top outfield prospects, but his stock has faded over the past couple of seasons. Now 25 years old, the 2010 first-round pick batted .271/.329/.394 with 10 home runs, 53 RBI, and 36 stolen bases over 136 games this season in Triple-A. With his defensive ability and speed, he could be a useful player for the Giants this month. Rotoworld.com

  • Giants call up Dominguez from Triple-A
    Giants purchased the contract of INF Chris Dominguez from Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Dominguez gets rewarded after batting .274 with 21 homers, 85 RBI, and 21 stolen bases over 131 games this season in Triple-A. His plate discipline leaves a lot to be desired, but he's capable of playing both corner infield and outfield spots and will provide some right-handed pop off the bench. Rotoworld.com

  • Giants call up C Quiroz
    Giants purchased the contract of C Guillermo Quiroz from Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Quiroz has joined the Giants as a third catcher now that rosters have expanded. The 32-year-old owns a .201/.258/.280 batting line in the majors and is not fantasy relevant. Rotoworld.com

    Travis Snider (hamstring) lined out as a pinch-hitter Monday against the Cardinals.

  • Wong hits dramatic pinch-hit home run vs PIT
    Kolten Wong hit a game-tying two-run homer against the Pirates on Monday.

    Advice: The Cardinals entered the bottom of the seventh down 4-2 before Kolten Wong hit a pinch-hit two-run homer to tie the game at 4-4. Wong was out of the lineup to start after hitting his head on the field on Sunday, but he passed concussion tests and was able to come through in dramatic fashion on Labor Day. Hopefully Wong is completely in the clear health-wise and will be able to add to his .252/.293/.404 slash. When he's going right, Wong has the power to help carry a squad. Rotoworld.com

  • Wong has passed additional concussion tests
    Kolten Wong (head) passed additional concussion tests on Monday morning in St. Louis.

    Advice: Wong made an early exit from Sunday's series finale against the Cubs after banging his head on the ground while trying to make a diving catch in shallow right-center field. He is sore from the whiplash but should be ready to go later this week. Pete Kozma is starting at second base in Monday afternoon's series-opener versus the Pirates. Rotoworld.com

  • Kolten Wong passes initial concussion tests
    Kolten Wong (head) passed his initial concussion tests on Sunday.

    Advice: Wong was removed from Sunday's game after crashing his head into the ground while attempting to make a tumbling catch. He will be re-evaluated on Monday, but his chances of avoiding any missed time look strong. Rotoworld.com

  • Kolten Wong sustains head injury on Sunday
    Kolten Wong was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Cubs after sustaining a head injury when crashing into the ground attempting to corral a shallow pop fly to right-center field.

    Advice: Wong was able to walk off the field under his own power with the team's training staff. He'll likely be put through the standard concussion protocol, and it could be a couple of days before he's cleared to rejoin the Cardinals lineup. He was replaced by Pete Kozma, who could see additional time at second base should Wong require any type of extended absence. Rotoworld.com

  • Marco Gonzales 'not going anywhere'
    Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said after Saturday's doubleheader that Marco Gonzales is "not going anywhere."

    Advice: It would suggest that Gonzales is a good bet to take the struggling Justin Masterson's spot in the rotation on Thursday in Milwaukee. Gonzales tossed six innings of one-run ball in Saturday's win over the Cubs. Tyler Lyons was terrific in 4 2/3 relief innings of Masterson in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader and would also be an option to start in Milwaukee. Rotoworld.com

  • Marco Gonzales pitches well against Cubs
    Marco Gonzales held the Cubs to one run over six innings Saturday as the Cardinals picked up a win in the second half of a doubleheader.

    Advice: Gonzales used his elite changeup to keep the Cubs hitters off balance, yielding only three hits and fanning five batters over his six impressive frames. He'll now head back to Triple-A Memphis, but the young southpaw could be in line for more spot starts in September. Rotoworld.com

  • Marco Gonzales to start on Saturday
    Marco Gonzales will be recalled from Triple-A Memphis to start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Cubs.

    Advice: Justin Masterson is getting the ball in the first game. Gonzales struggled in his three starts with the big club earlier this season, posting a 7.20 ERA. He's been great in the minors, though, putting up a 2.43 ERA and 117/27 K/BB ratio over 122 frames across three levels. Rotoworld.com

  • Morrow's long-term role could be as RP
    Blue Jays manager John Gibbons suggested Friday that Brandon Morrow's (finger) long-term role could be as a reliever.

    Advice: Morrow will move his rehab assignment up to Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday. The plan has always been to bring him back in September as a reliever, but it sounds like Morrow will be used out of the bullpen next year, too. "You look at his stuff," Gibbons said. "That might be an ideal role for him." Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 1:34 pm
  • Travis Snider (hamstring) sitting out Friday
    Travis Snider (hamstring) is not in the Pirates' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Snider exited Wednesday's contest with left hamstring discomfort. The Pirates haven't established a timetable for him, but usually hamstring ailments result in players sitting out for a bit. Jose Tabata is in right field Friday. Rotoworld.com

  • Morrow (finger) throws inning at Dunedin
    Brandon Morrow (finger) threw a scoreless inning for High-A Dunedin on Wednesday.

    Advice: The rehab appearance was the first for Morrow since hitting the disabled list on May 3. The inning is likely indicative of Morrow's role when he returns -- Blue Jays manager John Gibbons has said Morrow will likely come back as a reliever when he returns. That day is still probably a few weeks out. Rotoworld.com

  • Travis Snider nursing hamstring injury
    Travis Snider left Wednesday's game against the Cardinals with left hamstring discomfort.

    Advice: Snider tweaked the hamstring after beating out an infield single in the third inning. It's not clear at this point how long it might sideline him. Jose Tabata would stand to benefit if Snider is out a while, though the Pirates could also give Gregory Polanco another look. Rotoworld.com

  • Travis Snider exits with leg injury
    Travis Snider left Wednesday's game versus the Cardinals with an apparent leg injury.

    Advice: Snider tweaked something after beating out an infield single in the third inning. The outfielder entered Wednesday in a 1-for-19 funk at the dish. Jose Tabata pinch-ran for Snider and would stand to benefit if Snider is out a while, though the Pirates could also give Gregory Polanco another look. Rotoworld.com

  • Mike Adams ready for rehab assignment
    Mike Adams (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.

    Advice: It's not clear how many rehab appearances he'll need, but Adams will be activated at some point in September if all goes well. He's has been on the disabled list since June 7 with right rotator cuff inflammation and Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg admitted being surprised that the reliever might rejoin the bullpen at some point. "In some regards," Sandberg said. "He was in Florida doing his thing and doing his throwing program, and he progressed quickly in the last week or so." Rotoworld.com
