  • Gordon runs wild on Braves in Marlins victory
    Dee Gordon went 2-for-3 with three stolen bases and two runs scored in the Marlins' 6-4 win over the Braves on Saturday.

    Advice: Gordon had no fear for Braves catcher Anthony Recker, walking and stealing second base in the first inning, stealing third base in the third inning and stealing second again an inning later. The three steals give him 26 steals in 74 games this year. His .257/.298/.320 line leaves something to be desired, but the 28-year-old's speed is a fantasy difference-maker and with a full year to work with in 2017, he should once again be among the cream of the crop at second base. Today, 9:28 pm
  • Dietrich launches seventh homer versus Braves
    Derek Dietrich hit a two-run home run in Saturday's win over the Braves.

    Advice: Dietrich hit the two-run blast off Braves starter Aaron Blair in the first inning. He finished 1-for-4 in the game. Dietrich now has seven homers and 42 RBI in 122 games, batting a respectable .286/.381/.437 in that span. Today, 9:17 pm

  • Drew picks up two-run single against Pirates
    Stephen Drew went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Saturday's win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Drew had a big two-run single in the first inning to widen the Nats' early lead, and they never looked back. In his last four games, Drew is 6-for-15 with two doubles, two RBI and two runs scored, and with Daniel Murphy still sidelined it's likely the 33-year-old continues to get regular playing time as the season winds down. Drew is hitting .281/.345/.539 in 64 games this year. Today, 8:56 pm

  • Dustin Pedroia slams Red Sox to playoff berth
    Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-4 with a grand slam to help the Red Sox defeat the Rays 6-4 on Saturday.

    Advice: The Sox were trailing in the seventh inning when Pedroia stepped to the plate with two outs and the sacks jacked. He unloaded them with his 14th home run of the season, helping them clinch a playoff berth in the process. The homer also gave him his 100th run scored this year, and the 33-year-old is batting .318/.377/.447 with 71 RBI and seven steals through 148 games. Today, 7:45 pm
  • Forsythe hits 20-homer plateau for first time
    Logan Forsythe hit his 20th home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: He got there in legitimate fashion, taking all-everything closer Craig Kimbrel deep for a solo shot in the ninth inning. It's the first time in Forsythe's career that he's hit 20 homers in a season. The 29-year-old is batting .274/.344/.464 with 52 RBI, 75 runs scored and six steals to date. Today, 7:40 pm
  • Miller knocks two-run double against Red Sox
    Brad Miller hit a two-run double and scored a run against the Red Sox on Saturday.

    Brock Holt went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Holt plated the first run of the game with a double in the second inning. The all-purpose 28-year-old is hitting .264/.326/.397 with seven homers, 34 RBI, 44 runs scored and four steals in 88 games this year. Today, 7:34 pm

  • Tyler Saladino (back) to see doctor on Monday
    White Sox manager Robin Ventura expects Tyler Saladino (back) will have his back checked out when the team returns home on Monday.

    Advice: He was scratched from Friday's lineup with back discomfort and is expected to miss the entire weekend series in Cleveland. It's been a rough injury month for Saladino, who just returned after missing three games with a calf issue earlier this week. The 27-year-old has hit .282 this year with eight homers, 38 RBI and 11 steals. Today, 5:41 pm
  • DJ LeMahieu getting the night off Saturday
    DJ LeMahieu is not in the Rockies' lineup Saturday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: He's just getting a routine day off. LeMahieu has had a career year for the Rockies and is on the cusp of winning his first batting title. Rookie Pat Valaika will draw the start at second base Saturday while batting seventh against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw. Today, 4:11 pm
  • Yangervis Solarte returns after wife's death
    Yangervis Solarte has rejoined the Padres.

    Advice: He hasn't played since his wife passed away from cancer last weekend. Solarte has had a strong season for the Padres, hitting .284 with a career-high 15 HR and 68 RBI. Ryan Schimpf handed third base during his absence. Today, 3:34 pm
  • Flores (wrist) could be done for the year
    ESPN New York's Adam Rubin reports Wilmer Flores (wrist) may be done for the season.

    Advice: He isn't close to swinging a bat and has already received two cortisone shots since going down with a bruised wrist two weeks ago. Flores could return if the Mets make a deep postseason run but it's a near certainty he won't be back for the final week of the regular season. Assuming that's the case, Flores will close out the 2016 campaign with 16 HR, 49 RBI and a .267 average across 307 at-bats. Today, 1:46 pm

    Jose Peraza clubbed a three-run homer as the Reds fell to the Brewers on Friday night in Milwaukee.

    Advice: Peraza swatted his go-ahead homer off of Zach Davies in the fifth inning, briefly giving the Reds a 3-1 advantage. He has settled in nicely atop the Reds lineup and with his 2-for-4 effort on Friday is now slashing .327/.349/.423 with three long balls and 24 RBI on the season. Yesterday, 8:12 pm

  • Prado delivers two-run double in loss
    Martin Prado delivered a two-run double in Friday’s loss to the Braves.

    Advice: His first-inning double gave the Marlins an early 2-0 lead, but they were held off the board the rest of the way. With seven homers, Prado hasn’t shown much punch this year, but he has driven in 73 runs to go along with a .308/.363/.418 batting line. Yesterday, 7:57 pm
  • Jose Ramirez plates four to lead Indians
    Jose Ramirez homered and drove home four runs on Friday, powering the Indians to a 10-4 victory over the White Sox.

He also added a two-run double in the sixth that increased the Tribe's advantage to 9-4. He finished the night 2-for-5 with three runs scored and is now slashing a robust .315/.367/.469 on the season with 11 homers and 75 RBI on the season. Yesterday, 7:52 pm

  • Starlin Castro (hamstring) could run Saturday
    Starlin Castro (hamstring) will hit in an indoor batting cage Friday and hopes to do some running Saturday.

    Advice: However, he won't return this weekend in Toronto as previously hoped, as the Yankees don't want to play Castro on artificial turf. It does sound like the second baseman could be back in the lineup early next week if he continues to progress. Yesterday, 2:49 pm
  • Chris Taylor recalled from Triple-A
    Dodgers recalled INF Chris Taylor from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Taylor has batted just .224/.274/.379 in the majors this season. He'll provide infield depth. Yesterday, 2:25 pm
  • MRI reveals strained glute for Daniel Murphy
    Daniel Murphy has been diagnosed with a strained left glute following an MRI.

    Advice: Nationals manager Dusty Baker said that the ailment doesn't affect Murphy when he hits, but it's an issue when he runs. The club says there's no timetable for his return, although they've ruled him out through at least the weekend. That means he'll miss, at minimum, seven straight starts. Yesterday, 2:09 pm

  • Ian Kinsler (head) returns to Tigers' lineup
    Ian Kinsler (head) is back in the Tigers' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Kinsler hasn't played since being hit in the head with a pitch on Sunday, but he's no longer experiencing post-concussion symptoms. He's at second base and batting leadoff against Danny Duffy and the Royals. Yesterday, 1:24 pm
  • Aledmys Diaz says his arm is feeling fine
    Aledmys Diaz said Friday that his right arm is feeling fine.

    Advice: "I'm good," Diaz said. The shortstop is out of the Cardinals' lineup Friday for the second time in three games since manager Mike Matheny said Diaz was dealing with some arm strength issues. He's started only seven of 12 contests since returning from the disabled list. It doesn't make sense that Diaz would be sitting if he's healthy, so it seems likely that something is going on here. Yesterday, 9:27 am
  • Hernandez reaches five times, scores thrice
    Cesar Hernandez went 2-for-3 with three walks and three runs scored in Thursday's marathon loss to the Mets.

    Advice: Hernandez chipped in a single and a triple in the 11-inning contest, and it was the second time this year that he's reached base five times in a game. The 26-year-old has a sneaky nine-game hitting streak going, during which he's 13-for-37 (.351) with a pair of triples and eight runs scored. The good stretch has his overall line up to .293/.367/.398 in 146 games. Thursday, 9:45 pm
