  • Ubaldo to start for Orioles on Tuesday vs. NY
    Ubaldo Jimenez will start for the Orioles on Tuesday night against the Yankees.

    Advice: Jimenez actually pitched pretty well in the Orioles' AL East clincher last week, limiting the Blue Jays to two runs over five innings. But it was his first start in a month and the 30-year-old right-hander owns a rough 4.90 ERA and 1.54 WHIP in 119 1/3 total frames this season. He's not a good fantasy streamer.

    Today, 1:12 am
  • Mat Latos shut down for remainder of 2014
    Mat Latos (elbow) has been shut down for the remainder of the 2014 season.

    Advice: Latos, who has missed a large chunk of the 2014 campaign due to various injuries, is struggling to recover from a bone bruise in his right elbow. He'll finish the season 5-5 with a 3.25 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 74/23 K/BB ratio over 102 1/3 innings. Daniel Corcino will get the ball in his place again on Wednesday against the Brewers.
    Yesterday, 9:17 pm
  • Simon defeats Cardinals to earn 15th victory
    Alfredo Simon picked up his 15th victory of the season on Sunday, limiting the Cardinals to just two runs on seven hits over six frames.

    Advice: Simon walked a pair and struck out three on the evening. The 33-year-old right-hander didn't even begin the season penciled into the rotation, and hadn't won more than six games in any season, and now sports a 3.35 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 123/54 K/BB ratio across 191 1/3 innings. He'll make his final start of the year on Saturday against the Pirates.
    Yesterday, 8:57 pm
  • Lance Lynn K's nine in loss to Reds on Sunday
    Lance Lynn racked up nine strikeouts in a losing effort on Sunday, surrendering three runs on four hits and a pair of walks over his six innings of work.

    Advice: Most of the damage against him in the ballgame came via the long ball, with Jay Bruce and Todd Frazier each smacking solo home runs. He'll head into his final start of the regular season against the Brewers on Saturday with a 15-10 record, 2.73 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 176/71 K/BB ratio over 197 2/3 innings.
    Yesterday, 8:44 pm
  • Kennedy holds Giants to two runs for 12th win
    Ian Kennedy limited the Giants to two runs over 6 2/3 innings to earn the win Sunday.

    Advice: Kennedy yielded just five hits and a walk, with a two-run home run the only damage against him. Kennedy also struck out five in the outing. Kennedy has won two straight, improving to 12-13 while lowering his ERA to 3.76, and he'll have one more shot to improve on those numbers this season. That opportunity will come Friday in a rematch with the same Giants in San Francisco.
    Yesterday, 7:09 pm
  • Bergman holds D'backs to two runs in victory
    Christian Bergman gave up two runs over 5 2/3 innings in a win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

    Advice: Bergman gave up six hits without walking a batter in the win. The victory moved him to 3-4 on the year, and Bergman owns a 5.29 ERA through nine starts. Despite that, he's been more good than bad in recent starts, and he'll have a chance to finish strong against the Dodgers on Saturday.
    Yesterday, 5:48 pm
  • McHugh turns in quality start in win over M's
    Collin McHugh allowed three runs over six innings in a win over the Mariners on Sunday.

    Advice: McHugh gave up just four hits on the afternoon, with Michael Saunders' two-run homer doing most of the damage against him. McHugh walked just one while striking out six. McHugh still hasn't lost since the month of July, and he's now 11-9 with a 2.73 ERA on the year. The right-hander has one final start left in his stellar 2014 campaign, facing the Mets on Saturday.
    Yesterday, 4:03 pm
  • Porcello allows nine hits over 3 1/3 in loss
    Rick Porcello allowed nine hits and four runs over 3 1/3 innings in a loss to the Royals on Sunday.

    Advice: It wasn't Porcello's day, as the Royals got to him for runs in three of the four innings he started. The loss was a microcosm of his past few weeks, as Porcello is now 0-4 in his past five starts. Porcello is 15-12 with a 3.31 ERA overall, a testament to how good he was for the first five months, and he'll look to end on a high note Friday against the Twins.
    Yesterday, 3:38 pm
  • Anthony Swarzak roughed up in loss to Indians
    Anthony Swarzak was roughed up by the Indians Sunday, allowing eight hits and five runs -- three earned -- over 4 1/3 innings in a loss.

    Advice: Swarzak has had a rough go of it in his recent turn as a starter, as he's given up 11 runs over 8 2/3 innings in his last two starts. Swarzak also walked two and struck out two Sunday. The right-hander now owns a 4.52 ERA and may have to make one more start as the Twins try to get to the end of the season.
    Yesterday, 2:59 pm
  • Danks allows two hits, two runs against Rays
    John Danks allowed two runs on just two hits in a win over the Rays on Sunday.

    Advice: Danks was actually a bit unfortunate to allow two runs, as both hits paired with a walk to produce two runs in the sixth inning. Danks did walk three while striking out five. The win was his 10th of the season, but it represented his first since July 25. Danks will attempt to end on the upswing when he makes his last start of the season Friday against the Royals.
    Yesterday, 2:14 pm
  • Jacob deGrom strikes out 10, Mets sweep ATL
    Jacob deGrom held the Braves to two runs -- one earned -- over six innings Sunday as the Mets completed a three-game sweep with a 10-2 blowout win.

    Advice: The 26-year-old right-hander carried a perfect game into the fifth, but Justin Upton broke that up with a single and then scored on a Ruben Tejada fielding error. A few batters later, deGrom issued a bases-loaded walk to give the Braves their second run. He struck out 10 batters in the impressive outing and is now sporting a 2.63 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 43/144 K/BB ratio in 140 1/3 innings this year.
    Yesterday, 1:53 pm
  • Gonzalez serves up two homers in loss to Sox
    Miguel Gonzalez allowed eight hits, including two home runs, and three runs over 5 2/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: The start was bookended by Red Sox homers -- Mookie Betts led off the game with a home run, and a David Ross solo homer in the sixth ended his day. In between, Gonzalez did manage to strike out seven while allowing just one other run. The loss was the second straight for Gonzalez, who fell to 9-9 with a 3.33 ERA. The right-hander will look to end the year above the .500 mark with his start Friday at the Blue Jays.
    Yesterday, 1:45 pm
  • Worley tosses eight scoreless to best Brewers
    Vance Worley threw eight scoreless innings, allowing just four hits, in Sunday's 1-0 defeat of the Brewers.

    Advice: Worley was dominant in the start, giving up just four singles without walking a batter in silencing the Brewers' bats. He struck out five in the win. After a rough stretch in the middle of August, Worley has bounced back to win three straight, improving his record to 8-4. Worley has been a tremendous find for the Bucs this season, and he'll take a 2.93 ERA in his final start of the season against the Reds on Friday.
    Yesterday, 1:25 pm
  • Stephen Strasburg wins 13th on Sunday
    Stephen Strasburg shut out the Marlins over seven innings to earn his 13th win of the season in Sunday's 2-1 victory.

    Advice: He surrendered just three hits (two singles) while walking two and striking out five. Strasburg had thrown just 84 pitches, but Nationals manager Matt Williams elected to pull him and let his bullpen finish it out. The right-hander lowered his ERA to 3.23 with today's strong effort. He'll get the Marlins again next weekend in a final tuneup before the postseason.
    Yesterday, 1:15 pm
  • Roenis Elias (elbow) could return as reliever
    Roenis Elias (elbow) could pitch in relief during the final week if his MRI results come back clean.

    Advice: The Mariners are confident that Elias' elbow injury is minor, but we'll know for sure on Monday. He won't start again and it seems unlikely that he'll pitch in relief, but the M's aren't closing the door on the possibility.
    Yesterday, 9:34 am
  • Marcus Stroman suspension cut to five games
    Marcus Stroman's suspension has been reduced from six to five games.

    Advice: He'll begin serving the suspension Sunday and should simply just have his next outing pushing back a day. Stroman holds a 3.77 ERA over 126 2/3 innings for the Blue Jays this season.
    Yesterday, 8:56 am
  • Zimmermann says shoulder will be fine
    Jordan Zimmermann said he'll be fine for his next start after getting hit in the pitching shoulder by a line drive on Saturday.

    Advice: The Nationals let Zimmermann finish the sixth inning but then pulled him after 84 pitches. However, it sounds like there's no level of concern. "It's not going to affect me or anything," Zimmermann said. "It got a little tight after I came out in the sixth inning. We made the decision it wouldn't be smart to go back out there and keep throwing. It was a couple inches away from hitting me in the face."
    Yesterday, 8:47 am
  • Tyson Ross (forearm) to miss another start
    Tyson Ross will miss another start after feeling continued soreness in his lower forearm while playing catch Friday.

    Advice: The Padres have yet to officially rule Ross out for the season, but there's little to no chance we'll see him again. He's already easily set a career high with 195 1/3 innings. Robbie Erlin will get another start in Ross' place on Tuesday versus the Rockies and is a nice streaming option.

  • Could rays trade Hellickson over offseason?
    Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that Jeremy Hellickson's name "has been surfacing" as teams "start putting together lists of pitchers who could be had in trade this offseason."

    Advice: The Rays still have pitching depth even after dealing David Price, so it's possible they could trade Hellickson or someone else in order to add offense. The right-hander has been up-and-down in 12 post-Tommy John surgery starts, but he's under team control through 2016 and posted a 3.06 ERA over his first two-and-a-half big league seasons.
    Yesterday, 6:54 am
  • Weaver picks up 18th win with 7 strong frames
    Jered Weaver improved to 18-8, scattering one run over seven innings as the Angels felled the Rangers by an 8-5 score on Saturday.

    Advice: Weaver seems to be in post-season shape, as he now sports a 1.91 ERA over his last five starts. Against the Rangers, he allowed just five hits and a walk while fanning seven. He'll take a 3.43 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, and 164/63 K/BB ratio into his final start of the regular season on Friday in Seattle against the Mariners.
    Saturday, 9:15 pm
  • Stroman K's 7 in 6 innings, improves to 11-6
    Marcus Stroman picked up his 11th win of the season, yielding two runs in six innings as the Blue Jays topped the Yankees 6-3 on Saturday.

    Advice: The rookie scattered eight hits, striking out seven while walking none. Stroman has had a lot of positives in his first taste of the big leagues, sporting a 3.77 ERA with a 1.20 WHIP and 107/28 K/BB ratio. Stroman will finish out his season on Thursday at home against the Mariners.
    Saturday, 4:41 pm
  • Hellickson struggles in loss to White Sox
    Jeremy Hellickson struggled in a losing effort against the White Sox on Friday, surrendering four runs on seven hits in just 4 2/3 innings of work.

    Advice: Hellickson walked two and struck out one on the night. He cruised through the first four innings unscathed, but the White Sox strung together five hits and a walk to scratch out all four runs before chasing Hellickson in the fifth. He'll head into his final start of the 2014 campaign (against the Red Sox in Boston on Thursday) with a 1-4 record, 3.96 ERA and 1.37 WHIP.
    Friday, 7:42 pm
  • Angels could use three-man rotation in ALDS
    Angels manager Mike Scioscia indicated Friday that the team could utilize a three-man rotation in the American League Division Series.

    Advice: Assuming Matt Shoemaker makes it back healthy, it would presumably be he, C.J. Wilson and Jered Weaver, with Weaver getting the call to work on short rest. Given the critical importance of those games and the uncertainty surrounding the rest of the rotation, it certainly seems like a viable strategy on the Halos end.
    Friday, 4:27 pm
  • Padres have no update on status of Tyson Ross
    The Padres have yet to provide an update on the status of Tyson Ross (shoulder), but it sounds as though he could be shut down for the remainder of the season.

    Advice: The right-hander has had a tremendous season, registering a 2.81 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 195/72 K/BB ratio, but he has already logged a career-high 195 1/3 innings. With nothing left to play for, the smart move on the Padres end would be to just call it a season and let Ross get fully rested and ready to go for 2015.
    Friday, 4:21 pm

  • Roenis Elias (elbow) injury not serious
    Roenis Elias' left elbow injury is not considered serious.

    Advice: He underwent a precautionary MRI, but Elias' exam with doctors went well and there wasn't a high level of concern. The left-hander won't pitch again this season, but it's sounding like he'll have a relatively normal offseason.
    Friday, 3:01 pm
  • Vance Worley moves back into rotation
    Vance Worley will start on Sunday versus the Brewers.

    Advice: Charlie Morton took his spot for one turn, but his sports hernia is acting up again. Worley has faded in recent weeks but still boasts a 3.18 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 96 1/3 innings this season.
    Friday, 12:18 pm
  • Jered Weaver to start on Saturday
    Jered Weaver will start on Saturday against the Rangers.

    Advice: The Angels pushed him back from Thursday so that they could set him up for the playoffs. After Saturday's start, Weaver will now get the ball next Friday and then in Game 1 of the ALDS.
    Thursday, 4:11 pm
  • Jered Weaver scratched from Thursday's start
    Jered Weaver has been scratched from Thursday's start against the Mariners.

    Advice: It's not injury-related, as the Angels wrapped up the division Wednesday night and will give him a day to rest after the celebration. It will also allow them to line him up as they want for the postseason. Wade LeBlanc will start instead Thursday.
    Thursday, 1:09 pm
  • Roenis Elias (elbow) likely done for year
    Roenis Elias is scheduled to fly back to Seattle to undergo an MRI on his left elbow.

    Advice: Elias was forced to leave Tuesday's start against the Angels with what the Mariners are now calling "flexor bundle tightness" in his throwing elbow. There should be more clarity on his status soon, but Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon acknowledged Wednesday that he's likely done for the year. No word yet on who will replace him in the rotation Sunday against the Astros, but Taijuan Walker is a strong possibility.
    Wednesday, 3:42 pm
  • Marcus Stroman suspended six games by MLB
    Major League Baseball has suspended Marcus Stroman six games for intentionally throwing at the Orioles' Caleb Joseph during Monday's game.

    Advice: Stroman has maintained his innocence and will appeal the suspension, but it was pretty clear that he did it on purpose. With expanded rosters, he could just drop the appeal after his next scheduled outing Saturday and simply get a couple extra days off between starts.
    Wednesday, 12:52 pm
  • Kennedy allows 3 runs in victory over Phills
    Ian Kennedy improved to 11-13 after surrendering three runs across six innings as the Padres beat the Phillies on Tuesday.

    Advice: Kennedy struck out seven and walked four, racing to 111 pitches before Bud Black's hook came. On the bright side, he snapped a two-start losing streak; in those outings, he gave up double-digit hits in consecutive starts for the first time. Now sporting a 3.80 ERA and 1.32 WHIP, Kennedy welcomes San Francisco to town on Sunday.
    Tuesday, 10:26 pm
  • Lynn holds Brewers to one run in no-decision
    Lance Lynn held the Brewers to just one run over seven innings but settled for a no-decision Tuesday.

    Advice: Lynn gave up just five hits and a walk on the evening, with Gerardo Parra's solo home run in the fourth inning serving as the Brewers' only run against him. He exited in line for his 16th win before a Trevor Rosenthal blown save left him without a hand in the decision. Still, it was another terrific outing from the 27-year-old. Lynn owns a 15-9 record and 2.68 ERA heading into Sunday's contest against the Reds.
    Tuesday, 9:27 pm
  • Roenis Elias leaves start with stiff elbow
    Roenis Elias exited Tuesday's start against the Angels with left elbow stiffness.

    Advice: Well, that's no good. Elias allowed two runs on five hits and a walk and had surrendered a leadoff single in the fourth inning before departing. More info on his long-term outlook probably won't be available until Wednesday, but the rookie's season is almost surely over.
    Tuesday, 8:46 pm
  • Roenis Elias exits start with injury
    Roenis Elias left Tuesday's start against the Angels with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: Elias allowed a leadoff single to Josh Hamilton in the bottom of the fourth before the Mariners' trainer visited him on the mound and eventually walked off with him. It's not clear at this point what he's dealing with, but an update should be available shortly.
    Tuesday, 8:20 pm
  • Porcello allows two runs against Twins
    Rick Porcello gave up two runs over eight innings in a no-decision against the Twins Tuesday.

    Advice: Porcello surrendered seven hits, three of which came from Kennys Vargas, and walked two. He finished the eighth inning trailing, but the Tigers came back in the ninth to let him off the hook. As it is, Porcello remains 15-11 with a 3.19 ERA on the year. The right-hander still has two starts left this year to try to improve on his career year, with the next coming Monday against the White Sox.
    Tuesday, 7:55 pm
  • Jimenez battles shaky control to help clinch
    Ubaldo Jimenez got the win, allowing two runs over five innings, as the Orioles clinched the AL East with an 8-2 victory against the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

    Advice: It was Jimenez's first start in exactly a month, and he battled his shaky control as he has all season long. But the Jays couldn't capitalize, and Jimenez allowed just the two runs on two hits and four walks while striking out six. Though the Orioles have clinched, it's unlikely Jimenez starts again this season. He sits on a 4.90 ERA, 1.54 WHIP, and 110/74 K/BB ratio.
    Tuesday, 7:34 pm
  • Next 3-4 days 'critical' for Ross' status
    Padres manager Bud Black said Tuesday that the next 3-4 days are "critical" for the future status of Tyson Ross.

    Advice: Ross's next scheduled start has been pushed back indefinitely due to what has only been described as "general soreness." The Padres have not yet shut him down, as they want to see how he reacts to treatment. Ross has already easily set a career high with 195 1/3 innings, so don't be surprised if the Pads ultimately decide to shut him down.
    Tuesday, 4:27 pm

  • Mat Latos (elbow) plays catch with no issues
    Mat Latos (elbow) played catch with no issues on Tuesday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's thrown since he was scratched from Friday's start with a bone bruise in his right elbow. Reds manager Bryan Price indicated over the weekend that Latos is unlikely to return this season, and that's probably still the case given how little time is left. Still, it seems like the door hasn't been shut yet.
    Tuesday, 3:54 pm
  • John Danks goes six scoreless
    John Danks blanked the Royals for six innings, but was left with nothing to show for it Monday.

    Advice: Danks exited with a 3-0 lead, only to have it blown with one run in the seventh, one in the eighth and two in the ninth. As a result, Danks remains winless in his last nine starts.
    Monday, 9:01 pm
  • Alfredo Simon goes seven scoreless
    Alfredo Simon shut out the Cubs for seven innings in a no-decision Monday.

    Advice: Simon owes his All-Star appearance to the Cubs this year; he's 3-0 with a 1.10 ERA in five starts against them and 11-10 with a 3.83 ERA versus everyone else. The win tonight was just his third against seven losses since the All-Star break.
    Monday, 8:24 pm
  • Jacob deGrom fans 13 against Marlins
    Jacob deGrom struck out the first eight batters he faced and 13 overall while allowing three runs over seven innings Monday in a no-decision against the Marlins.

    Advice: With a chance to set the modern record for consecutive strikeouts to start a game, deGrom gave up a single to opposing starter Jarred Cosart in the third, ending his streak. Still, it was an awfully impressive run, and deGrom remained strong until the seventh, when he gave up all three runs. Those were the first earned runs he had allowed in four starts since Aug. 23. With a 2.68 ERA and 134 strikeouts in 134 1/3 innings, deGrom now seems like the clear favorite to claim the NL Rookie of the Year award.
    Monday, 8:14 pm
  • Marcus Stroman gives up five runs in loss
    Marcus Stroman gave up five runs in six innings Monday in a loss to the Orioles.

    Advice: The runs all came in the first four innings. In the sixth, Stroman threw behind the head of Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph, apparently in retaliation to an earlier incident involving Joseph and Jose Reyes. MLB has refused to suspend pitchers this year for throwing at batters before warnings were issues and Stroman wasn't ejected, so a suspension seems unlikely. Still, one imagines the Orioles won't forget what happened anytime soon.
    Monday, 7:48 pm
  • McHugh exits game after taking comebacker
    Collin McHugh left Monday's start versus the Indians with a bruised left forearm.

    Advice: McHugh took a comebacker off the bat of Lonnie Chisenhall to force his exit. He was in the midst of another excellent outing, yielding just one unearned run on five hits and no walks while striking out seven. The Astros expect McHugh to be ready for his next start.
    Monday, 7:45 pm
  • Stephen Strasburg goes seven scoreless
    Stephen Strasburg blanked the Braves for seven innings, striking out seven, in a victory Monday.

    Advice: Strasburg walked none for the fourth straight start. He had been 3-7 with a 4.61 ERA against the Braves in his career, including a loss last Wednesday, but he had an easy time tonight. The only time the outcome seemed in doubt was when Rafael Soriano took over in the ninth. Since the Nationals held on to win 4-2, Strasburg moved to 12-11 with a 3.34 ERA.
    Monday, 7:28 pm
  • Tyson Ross' next start to be pushed back
    Tyson Ross' next scheduled start will be pushed back a few days because the right-hander is dealing with general soreness after his last outing.

    Advice: Ross was rocked for six runs -- four earned -- in three innings Saturday in an uncharacteristically poor showing. It doesn't appear to be something to be overly concerned about at the moment. Robbie Erlin will get the ball on Thursday versus the Phillies, with Ross hoping to start over the weekend or possibly early next week.
    Monday, 4:30 pm

  • Vance Worley moved to the Pirates' bullpen
    Vance Worley has been moved to the bullpen.

    Advice: Charlie Morton will return from the disabled list and claim the vacant rotation spot Tuesday night against the Red Sox. Worley has pitched well in a starting role this season for the Bucs and should be a useful weapon in long relief down the stretch.
    Sep 15, 6:38 am
  • Jordan Zimmermann goes 6 2/3 strong
    Jordan Zimmermann spun 6 2/3 shutout frames in Sunday's 3-0 victory over the Mets.

    Advice: Zimmermann wasn't terribly efficient, needing 103 pitches to cover the 6 2/3 innings, but he struck out five, walks just one and allowed six hits while keeping the Mets off the board. The righty is now 12-5 on the season while sporting a 2.83 ERA and a career-high 168 strikeouts. Zimmermann gets the Marlins in Miami next weekend.
    Sep 14, 1:15 pm
  • Mat Latos (elbow) likely done for the season
    Reds manager Bryan Price indicated Saturday that Mat Latos (elbow) is unlikely to return this season.

    Advice: Latos was scratched from Friday's start with a bone bruise in his right elbow. While it doesn't seem like a long-term concern, there's no reason for the Reds to push him to return with so little time left in the season. "We're not going to try to force feed Mat his last few starts if he's not feeling really good," Price said. "It doesn't make much sense for us. I'd like him to pitch, but I don't want to exacerbate an existing issue. He'll have to come quite a ways to make that next start."
    Sep 14, 7:25 am
  • Jered Weaver strikes out 12 in victory
    Jered Weaver won for the 17th time this season by limiting the Astros to one run in seven innings and striking out 12 on Saturday.

    Advice: Weaver fell three strikeouts short of his career high, but it's just the third time in his career that he's gotten to 12 and the first time since April 6, 2012 that he's even reached double figures. He's previous season high was nine against the White Sox in June. Weaver ended up throwing 101 pitches, 76 of them strikes. Even though his home run and walk rates are up this year, he's the AL leader in wins and he has a 3.50 ERA.
    Sep 13, 10:23 pm
  • Tyson Ross allows six runs in loss to D'Backs
    Tyson Ross surrendered six runs -- four earned -- in three innings Saturday in a loss to Arizona.

    Advice: It was one of the ugliest outings of the season for Ross, who entered the start with a 2.66 ERA and watched it rise to 2.81. The 27-year-old right-hander might be hitting a wall here in mid-September. He's thrown 195 2/3 innings this season after totaling 136 2/3 innings between the minors and majors in 2013. Ross will get the Phillies at home next time out.

  • Gonzalez gives up three runs in loss to Yanks
    Miguel Gonzalez yielded three runs over six innings Saturday in a loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: All three runs scored in the second inning. Gonzalez rebounded nicely from there, but the damage was done. He ended up allowing three hits and three walks to go along with one strikeout. This marked the first time since August 2 that he allowed more than two earned runs in a start. Gonzalez will carry a 3.28 ERA into a start against the Red Sox next weekend at home.
    Sep 13, 3:14 pm
  • Hellickson fans eight Jays in no-decision
    Jeremy Hellickson pitched well but settled for a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Saturday after allowing two runs (three earned) on four hits over his six frames.

    Advice: Hellickson punched out eight hitters on the afternoon while walking four. All three runs against him came across in the third inning, one of them unearned due to a throwing error. The right-hander will carry a 1-3 record, 3.63 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 51/19 K/BB ratio into Friday's start against the White Sox.
    Sep 13, 12:55 pm
  • Swarzak likely to start for Twins on Monday
    Anthony Swarzak is the most likely candidate to start for the Twins on Monday.

    Advice: The Twins are in need of a starter with Tommy Milone scratched, and Swarzak is the preferred choice. The Twins have to get through three games over the weekend without needing him in long relief first though.
    Sep 13, 11:00 am
  • Ubaldo Jimenez to start for O's on Tuesday
    Ubaldo Jimenez will make a spot start for the Orioles on Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: With Saturday's doubleheader, the Orioles will need to utilize a sixth starter next week and Jimenez gets the call. Since his move to the bullpen, the big right-hander has continued to struggle, allowing four runs in his 4 1/3 innings (8.31 ERA) with a 6/4 K/BB ratio. He should be avoided for fantasy purposes.
    Sep 13, 7:53 am
  • No timetable for Mat Latos' (elbow) return
    There is no timetable for Mat Latos's (elbow).

    Advice: Latos developed a bone bruise in his throwing elbow while pitching. It doesn't sound like a long-term concern, but with so little time left in the season, his status is very much up in the air. "Hopefully, it's a one week thing and I can make my next start," Latos said. Daniel Corcino is starting Friday in Latos' place.

  • Stroman, Buehrle flip-flopped in rotation
    Mark Buehrle will moved up a day to start on Sunday versus the Rays, pushing Marcus Stroman back a day to face the Orioles on Monday.

    Advice: It's bad news for Stroman owners, as they lose a two-start week and also he'll now have a tougher matchup. He will have two starts next week now, though, and you can't blame the Blue Jays for giving the youngster an extra day of rest.

  • Latos scratched with bone bruise in elbow
    Mat Latos has been scratched from Friday's scheduled start versus the Brewers due to a bone bruise in his right elbow.

    Advice: There's been no indication that the ailment is related to the elbow issue that caused him to get a late start to the season. However, it's also not clear whether the injury might cause him to miss additional starts. The Reds should provide more on his status later Friday. Daniel Corcino is making a spot start in Latos' place.
