  • Cards activate Rosenthal from paternity leave
    Cardinals activated RHP Trevor Rosenthal from the paternity leave list.

    Advice: Rosenthal missed the Cardinals' weekend series in San Francisco to welcome a new baby girl. The 25-year-old All-Star closer will be back in the St. Louis bullpen for Monday night's series opener against the Nationals at Busch Stadium. He has a 1.52 ERA and 41 saves so far this season for the first-place Cards. Today, 9:15 am
  • Cardinals option Sam Tuivailala to AAA level
    Cardinals optioned RHP Sam Tuivailala to Triple-A Memphis.

    Advice: The hard-throwing 22-year-old owns a 1.64 ERA in 11 innings this season at the major league level. He will return to the Cardinals' bullpen after rosters expand. Today, 9:13 am

  • Steve Johnson expected to join O's on Tues.
    Steve Johnson is expected to join the Orioles on Tuesday.

    Advice: He'll be part of the club's first wave of September callups. Johnson has not appeared in a major league game since 2013, but he boasts a 2.30 ERA, 1.079 WHIP, and 67/16 K/BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings this season at Triple-A Norfolk. The 28-year-old right-hander should do well in a middle relief role over the final month of the 2015 campaign. Today, 9:05 am

  • Freese (finger) could be activated on Monday
    David Freese (finger) will join the Angels on Monday in Oakland and could be activated from the disabled list.

    Advice: Freese has been playing in rehab games with Triple-A Salt Lake for the past week with no lingering discomfort in his right index finger. He suffered a non-displaced fracture of that finger back in late July. Angels third basemen have hit a combined .183 with two homers in 36 games with Freese on the shelf, so he should return to a starting gig. Today, 9:02 am
    15-Day DL
  • Michael Taylor (knee) goes 2-for-4 in return
    Michael Taylor (knee) went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in his return to the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Taylor was held out for a couple games after bruising his right knee. The young outfielder is going to be an important player for the second-place Nationals down the stretch with Denard Span (hip) now ruled out for the remainder of the 2015 season. Taylor, 24, is batting .243/.292/.391 with 13 home runs and 15 stolen bases in 111 games this year at the major league level. Today, 7:15 am
  • Yanks put in waiver claim on David Robertson
    According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, the Yankees have claimed David Robertson off revocable waivers.

    Advice: Now the Yankees and White Sox have until Monday at 2 p.m. ET to work something out. Heyman says there is "no evidence of trade talks between the teams," which is typical of waiver claims this time of year. Robertson, who saved 39 games for the Yankees in 2014, has registered a 2.60 ERA, 0.88 WHIP, and 71/11 K/BB ratio in 52 innings this season for Chicago. He signed a four-year, $46 million free agent contract last winter. Today, 6:20 am
  • Yelich (knee) hits pinch-hit single vs. Nats
    Christian Yelich (knee, ankle) hit a pinch-hit single in the Marlins' loss to the Nationals on Sunday.

    Advice: Yelich hadn't appeared in a game for the Fish since re-injuring his right knee and fouling a ball off his ankle last Wednesday. The 23-year-old outfielder should be ready to return to everyday action this week. Today, 6:10 am
  • Seager smacks two-run homer, RBI single
    Kyle Seager went 3-for-6 with a two-run homer, an RBI single and three total RBI in Sunday's 11-inning loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Seager jumped the M's out to a 2-0 lead when he hit a two-run tater against White Sox starter Jose Quintana in the first. He would later add an RBI single, but the Mariners were unable to hold a 5-4 ninth-inning lead and ultimately lost 6-5 in 11 innings. Seager had struggled mightily in August up until the last week, but he's now homered in three straight games while recording three hits in two of those (and two hits in the other). This all equals out to a .262/.317/.442 triple-slash, 21 homers, 55 RBI and five steals. Yesterday, 3:24 pm
  • Reds place Brennan Boesch on 15-day DL
    Reds placed OF Brennan Boesch on the 15-day disabled list with a right ankle contusion.

    Advice: Boesch fouled a ball off his ankle during batting practice last week and the injury hasn't improved as the club had hoped. He should be back with the big league club as soon as he's eligible to come off the disabled list. A corresponding roster move will be announced on Monday. Yesterday, 2:41 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Carter destroys 441-foot home run
    Chris Carter went 1-for-3 with a long, long home run in Sunday's loss to the Twins.

    Advice: Carter clubbed his three-run, 441-foot shot in the ninth inning, but the Twins held a 7-0 lead at the time and the gigantic bomb merely served as an exclamation point on the Astro's loss. The free-swinger has put in yet another one of his no-average, a-fair-bit-of-power campaigns, as he's currently slashing .183/.296/.378 with 18 bombs, 52 RBI and 136 strikeouts over 344 at-bats. Yesterday, 2:28 pm
  • Lamb whiffs eight Brewers in loss
    John Lamb pitched well in Sunday's loss to the Brewers, allowing two runs on five hits over six innings.

    Advice: Lamb struck out eight without walking a batter. Runs scored on a Ryan Braun solo homer in the first inning and a Jonathan Lucroy RBI single in the third, but he otherwise kept the Brewer offense quiet. Through four major league starts, he holds a tough 5.24 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 29/5 K/BB ratio over 22 1/3 innings. The strikeout rate is certainly spicy, though the rest of his numbers are less exciting. Lamb will head home to face these same Brewers in his next scheduled start. Yesterday, 1:58 pm
  • Hand pitches into fifth allowing five runs
    Brad Hand couldn't hold a 3-0 lead in Sunday's loss to the Nationals, surrendering five runs on eight hits over 4 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Hand struck out five and walked two on the afternoon. The ghost of Jayson Werth accounted for three of the five runs on his line, as the outfielder took him deep for a two-run homer in the third and notched an RBI double in the fifth. The 25-year-old southpaw will carry a 4.54 ERA and 1.33 WHIP into a home showdown with the Mets next time he toes the rubber. Yesterday, 1:48 pm
  • Duffy's 5 solid frames results in no-decision
    Danny Duffy gave up two runs in five innings, taking a no-decision on Sunday as the Royals fell to the Rays.

    Advice: Duffy allowed a run-scoring single in the first inning and a solo home run to Brandon Guyer in the third, accounting for all of the damage. They were two of seven hits the lefty gave up along with two walks and six strikeouts. He now has a 4.11 ERA with a 1.41 WHIP and a 72/44 K/BB ratio over 114 innings. Duffy has a date with the White Sox at home next. Yesterday, 1:31 pm
  • Guyer's three-hit day leads Rays over Royals
    Brandon Guyer went 3-for-4 with a solo home run as the Rays took down the Royals on Sunday.

    Advice: Guyer led off the bottom of the first inning with a single and later scored. He added a solo home run in the third inning to tie the game at two apiece. The outfielder has had a sneakily solid year for the Rays, batting .270/.372/.407 with six home runs, 24 RBI, 34 runs scored, and 10 stolen bases in 293 plate appearances. Yesterday, 1:27 pm
  • Tomlin throws 7 effective innings to beat LAA
    Josh Tomlin picked up the win on Sunday, holding the Angels to two runs in seven innings.

    Advice: Tomlin made only one mistake, resulting in a solo home run to Grant Green in the sixth inning. He allowed the leadoff batter to reach on a single to begin the eighth inning before giving way to Zach McAllister, who allowed the inherited runner to score. Tomlin allowed six hits, walked none, and struck out eight in the effort. He's been effective in four starts thus far, owning a 3.08 ERA with a 0.76 WHIP and a 26/2 K/BB ratio in 26 1/3 innings. The right-hander will take on the Tigers in a road match next. Yesterday, 1:02 pm
  • Lance Lynn (ankle) on track for Friday start
    Lance Lynn reported improvement with his right ankle Sunday and is on track to make his next scheduled start on Friday versus the Pirates.

    Advice: Lynn had to exit Saturday's outing after rolling his right ankle, but he'll be fine. He'll take a 2.80 ERA into Friday's start. Yesterday, 11:12 am
  • Brett Lawrie scratched with back tightness
    Brett Lawrie was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to back tightness.

    Advice: It's an issue that crops up on Lawrie from time to time. Eric Sogard has taken his spot at second base. Yesterday, 10:48 am
  • Jhonny Peralta sitting out on Sunday
    Jhonny Peralta is not in the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a simple day off. Greg Garcia is filling in for Peralta at shortstop. Yesterday, 10:04 am
  • Matt Moore to rejoin Rays' rotation in Sept.
    Matt Moore will rejoin the Rays' rotation when rosters expand in September.

    Advice: Moore was awful in six starts with the big club but has rebounded at Triple-A Durham, posting a 3.30 ERA and 43/8 K/BB ratio over 30 innings. That includes a 16-strikeout game two starts ago. It's unclear who Moore will replace in the rotation, although he's on the same schedule as Erasmo Ramirez. "It seems Matt is in a really good place, and to his credit, he went down there and worked on some things we thought he needed to work on, and he also agreed,'' manager Kevin Cash said. Yesterday, 9:06 am

  • Mike Montgomery optioned to Triple-A
    Mariners optioned LHP Mike Montgomery to Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Montgomery has faded after a nice start, posting a 13.17 ERA over his last four starts. He'll be back when rosters expand, but it might not be as a starter. Yesterday, 8:18 am
