Player Notes

  • Severino ejected from Monday's game
    Luis Severino was ejected from Monday's game against the Blue Jays in the second inning.

    Advice: Severino grazed Josh Donaldson in the elbow with a pitch in the bottom of the first inning and Blue Jays hurler J.A. Happ answered by hitting Chase Headley with a pitch in the top of the second. Severino responded by hitting Justin Smoak with a pitch in the bottom of the frame, which led to a benches-clearing brawl. Yankees manager Joe Girardi, pitching coach Larry Rothschild, and bench coach Rob Thomson have also been ejected. 39 minutes ago
  • Richards (elbow) to face hitters Wednesday
    Garrett Richards (elbow) is slated to face live hitters on Wednesday.

    Advice: Assuming all goes well, Richards will make his first appearance in the instructional league next Monday. The 28-year-old was diagnosed with a torn right ulnar collateral ligament back in May, but he decided to undergo stem cell treatments in hopes of avoiding Tommy John surgery. 57 minutes ago
    60-Day DL
  • Masahiro Tanaka (forearm) could be shut down
    Masahiro Tanaka (forearm) will see Dr. Christopher Ahmad in New York on Tuesday to determine whether he can make another start before the end of the season.

    Advice: Tanaka was scratched from Monday's start against the Blue Jays due to a mild forearm strain. His status up in the air, especially with the Yankees on the verge of being eliminated from playoff contention. There should be more clarity on his status in the next day or so. Today, 3:55 pm
  • Jungmann (hip) won't start this weekend
    Taylor Jungmann will not make his final scheduled start this weekend against the Rockies due to hip injury.

    Advice: Jungmann suffered the injury in his most recent start. He'll finish the year with a 7.76 ERA over six starts and two relief appearances. Brent Suter will start on Friday while Wily Peralta will get the nod on Saturday. Today, 3:16 pm
  • McCullers (elbow) continuing rehab in Florida
    Lance McCullers (elbow) will continue his rehab at the Astros' spring training complex in Kissimmee, Florida.

    Advice: McCullers, out since early August with a mild elbow sprain, was able to make it through a 30-pitch bullpen session on Thursday. The next step will be throwing live batting practice. The Astros would have to make an unlikely run at the playoffs for him to have a chance to make it back this year, but the good news is that he's making progress. Today, 2:35 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Danny Salazar (forearm) throws off mound
    Danny Salazar (forearm) threw 20-plus pitches off the mound on Monday.

    Advice: Salazar threw all fastballs at about 75 percent intensity, but it was a step in the right direction. Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway said "it would be nice" to get him a relief appearance before the playoffs, though it's unclear whether he'll have enough time to do so. Today, 2:13 pm
  • De La Rosa to have stem cell treatment
    Rubby De La Rosa will undergo stem cell treatment on his ailing right elbow.

    Advice: De La Rosa went the rest and rehab route with his sprained ulnar collateral ligament, but he's still feeling soreness and tightness in his elbow. This appears to be a last-ditch effort to avoid his second Tommy John surgery. Today, 2:07 pm
  • Matz sent for another shoulder checkup
    Steven Matz was sent for another checkup on his shoulder on Monday.

    Advice: Matz was originally expected to make his return to the Mets' rotation this past Friday, but he was scratched after experiencing renewed soreness in his left shoulder. He's not expected to pitch this month and any contribution in the playoffs could also be a stretch, even in a relief role. Today, 1:25 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Marlins activate Adam Conley (finger) off DL
    Marlins activated LHP Adam Conley from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Conley was supposed to return to the Marlins' rotation on Sunday against the Braves, but that game was cancelled following the death of Miami ace Jose Fernandez. The left-handed Conley will now pitch Monday versus the Mets and Bartolo Colon. He missed six weeks with tendinitis in his left middle finger. Today, 12:31 pm
  • Jordan Zimmermann could start this weekend
    Jordan Zimmermann could start Saturday at Atlanta.

    Advice: Zimmermann looked sharp in a three-inning relief appearance Sunday versus the Royals, yielding one run while striking out four. He threw 30 of his 35 pitches for strikes. It was the first appearance since September 10 for the 30-year-old right-hander, who has been battling lat trouble since late June. Saturday's game is setting up as a must-win for Detroit. Zimmermann is a risky fantasy play, even against the lowly Braves, because of his limited recent workload. Today, 9:53 am
  • Jake Thompson done for the season
    Jake Thompson has been shut down for the year.

    Advice: Thompson allowed three earned runs over four innings Sunday in the Phillies' 17-0 blowout loss to the Mets, leaving him with a 5.70 ERA in 53 2/3 innings for the season. The young right-hander did show some promise in his first taste of the majors -- if you look beyond the ugly overall numbers -- and he should open the 2017 campaign as a member of the Philadelphia starting rotation assuming all goes smoothly next spring. Acquired from the Rangers in last year's Cole Hamels trade, Thompson has a bright future ahead. Today, 5:58 am
  • Jon Lester dominates Cardinals to win 19th
    Jon Lester was brilliant in Sunday night's victory over the Cardinals, racking up seven strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings of shutout baseball.

    Advice: The veteran southpaw scattered just three hits and a walk on the masterful evening. He has been absolutely outstanding down the stretch and has built up a very strong case for the National League Cy Young Award. Now 19-4 on the season, he'll carry a 2.28 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 191/49 K/BB ration into his final regular season tune-up against the Reds in Cincinnati on Friday. Yesterday, 8:28 pm
  • Tyler Anderson logs quality start on Sunday
    Tyler Anderson logged a quality start in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Sunday, surrendering two runs on 10 hits over 6 1/3 innings.

    Advice: The left-hander walked two and struck out only one batter on the afternoon. The Dodgers scratched out a run against him in the third inning and then tied the score with Corey Seager's RBI triple in the seventh. Anderson has done a really nice job in the Rockies rotation this season, compiling a 3.54 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and a 99/28 K/BB ratio over 114 1/3 innings. He'll wrap up his season on Saturday against the Brewers. Yesterday, 5:12 pm
  • Glasnow allows four runs in loss to Nats
    Tyler Glasnow gave up four runs -- three earned -- over three innings Sunday in the Pirates' loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: It was the third major league start for Glasnow, who had been operating out of the Bucs' bullpen since his early-September return from a shoulder injury. He gave up seven hits and walked one. It's not clear if there is another start in store for the youngster. Yesterday, 2:49 pm
  • Iglesias earns save as Reds top Brewers
    Raisel Iglesias struck out all three batters he faced Sunday to earn his fourth save.

    Advice: Iglesias needed just 15 total pitches to carve up Chris Carter, Hernan Perez, and Orlando Arcia. The right-hander has now earned the Reds' last two saves with Tony Cingrani hitting a rough patch. Iglesias carries sneaky fantasy value into the final week. Yesterday, 2:30 pm
  • Jake Odorizzi lasts just three innings
    Jake Odorizzi had his shortest outing of the season Sunday, lasting just three innings while allowing two runs in a no-decision versus the Red Sox.

    Advice: He was lucky to permit just the two runs, as Odorizzi yielded four hits and three walked while throwing a whopping 84 pitches over his three frames. It's a hard one for his fantasy owners to swollen as they come down the stretch, but the matchup was certainly a difficult one. Odorizzi has been excellent overall in the second half (2.81 ERA) and should be better next weekend in Texas. Yesterday, 2:16 pm
  • Boyd fails to record out in loss to Royals
    Matt Boyd failed to record an out Sunday in the Tigers' loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Boyd gave up four runs on two singles, a double, a triple, and a homer in a nightmare of a first inning. This after he worked eight innings Tuesday against the Twins. The young lefty may have hit a wall here in late September. Yesterday, 2:14 pm
  • Jarred Cosart (elbow) undergoes MRI, X-ray
    Jarred Cosart has undergone an MRI and X-ray on his right elbow.

    Advice: Cosart exited Saturday's start versus the Giants with what the Padres think is a bone spur in the righty's elbow. He's almost surely done for the season. Cosart holds an ugly 6.00 ERA over 13 starts this season. Yesterday, 12:18 pm
  • Jose Fernandez killed in boating accident
    Andy Slater of 940-AM WINZ reports that Jose Fernandez was killed early Sunday morning in a boating accident.

    Advice: He was one of three people killed in a crash off of Miami Beach. The Marlins have cancelled Sunday's game against the Braves following this unfathomably tragic news. Fernandez turned just 24 at the end of July and, of course, had already been through plenty with what he experienced in defecting from Cuba. Our thoughts go out to Fernandez's family and the Marlins during this horrific tragedy. Yesterday, 5:50 am
    Not Active
  • Bumgarner coughs up five runs in six innings
    Madison Bumgarner escaped with a no-decision after allowing five runs in six innings but the Giants went on to beat the Padres 9-6 in extra innings on Saturday.

    Advice: He put up zeroes in the first three innings but gave up a solo homer in the fourth, a two-run homer in the fifth and another two-run homer in the sixth. He has given up a career-high 26 homers this season, but his home runs allowed rate is still better than league average. Today he surrendered only one hit that didn't leave the yard. He punched out five and issued one free pass. He helped himself at the plate by going 2-for-3 and scoring a run. The five runs allowed were the most he has given up in a game this year. His 2.71 ERA in 219 1/3 innings is still spectacular even after the poor outing. He is likely to get one more start in the regular season. Saturday, 10:36 pm
