  • Kang (shoulder) continuing rehab in Indy
    Jung Ho Kang (shoulder) has been sent to Triple-A Indianapolis to continue his rehab.

    Advice: Kang has been cleared to take batting practice and field ground balls, but he isn't ready to begin a minor league rehab assignment. Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said the decision to send him to Indianapolis over staying with the team for their series against the Cubs did not have anything to do with his sexual assault case, which is still being investigated by Chicago police. It's unclear when he'll be ready to return from the disabled list. Today, 7:48 am
    15-Day DL
  • Cabrera (knee) strikes out as pinch hitter
    Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) struck out as a pinch-hitter Monday against the Marlins.

    Advice: Cabrera aggravated a left knee injury in a collision at first base on Sunday and was held out of the starting lineup on Monday. It's unclear when he'll be ready to return to the lineup. Today, 6:02 am
  • Javier Baez finishes 4-for-6
    Javier Baez had four hits in six at-bats in Monday's 13-inning game.

    Advice: He was twice thrown out at home plate, though neither was a miscue on his part. Baez entered the night with a .197/.227/.296 line in 71 at-bats during August. Still, his glove has been earning him a lot of playing time. Yesterday, 10:25 pm

  • X-rays negative on Corey Seager's wrist
    X-rays came back negative on Corey Seager's left wrist.

    Advice: Seager was hit by a pitch twice on Monday -- including off his wrist in the seventh inning -- but he stayed in the game. Fortunately, tests ruled out anything serious, but he's expected to get the day off on Tuesday at the very least. Yesterday, 9:36 pm
  • Jose Peraza exits game with facial contusion
    Jose Peraza exited Monday's game against the Angels with a facial contusion.

    Advice: Peraza was hit in the ear/jaw area by a pickoff throw at first base in the third inning. He was down on the ground for a while, but fortunately he didn't suffer any fractures. We should know more about his status on Tuesday. Yesterday, 9:21 pm

  • Alcides Escobar hits three-run homer
    Alcides Escobar hit a three-run homer Monday in the win over the Yankees.

    Advice: Escobar has doubled his homer total in the last five days, going from two to four. His current .637 OPS is his highest mark since the first week of the season. Yesterday, 9:13 pm
  • Didi Gregorius goes 3-for-5 in loss
    Didi Gregorius went 3-for-5 with two doubles and two RBI against the Royals on Monday.

    Advice: Gregorius's OBP has been tumbling some, but the power has been impressive; he has 29 doubles to go along with his 17 homers. It's not exactly ideal that he's hitting cleanup for a major league team, but the Yankees lack better options at the moment. Yesterday, 9:11 pm
  • Orlando Arcia smacks second home run
    Orlando Arcia clubbed a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Arcia's bomb started a four-run rally as the Brewers took the lead in the seventh inning, but the Cards responded with three runs over the last two frames. It's been a struggle at the plate for the young shortstop, but he has picked it up of late with eight hits -- including his first two big league homers -- over his last 22 at-bats. Yesterday, 8:25 pm
  • Reyes doubles, scores run against Marlins
    Jose Reyes went 1-for-5 with a double and a run scored Monday against the Marlins.

    Advice: Reyes doubled to lead off the bottom of the eighth inning and moved over to third base after a fly out by Alejandro De Aza. He then scored the tying run after A.J. Ramos uncorked a wild pitch. Reyes collided with Ramos during the play at the plate, but fortunately for the short-handed Mets, he was able to stay in the ballgame. The 33-year-old is batting .281/.329/.474 with 15 extra-base hits (including four homers), 13 RBI, six steals, and 23 runs scored through 32 games. Yesterday, 8:15 pm

  • Tyler Saladino cranks eighth home run
    Tyler Saladino had a two-RBI single and a solo homer in Monday's loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Saladino was the White Sox' offense in this one, as his single put the White Sox ahead in the fourth and his home run put them ahead in the seventh. Unfortunately for him and the Pale Hose, Jarrod Saltalamacchia put the Tigers back up for good with a homer in the eighth. Saladino has settled in as the White Sox' regular second baseman with Brett Lawrie banged up. Yesterday, 8:04 pm

  • Hardy slugs homer against Blue Jays
    J.J. Hardy went 2-for-3 with a solo homer in Monday’s loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: His third-inning blast off Marco Estrada was the only offense of the night for Baltimore. This was Hardy’s first multi-hit game since August 18. The 34-year-old is batting just .264/.302/.411 with eight homers and 34 RBI through 84 games this season, but he has at least shown some more pop over the past month and a half. Yesterday, 6:44 pm
  • Santana won't need surgery on shoulder
    Danny Santana will not require surgery on his left shoulder.

    Advice: Santana suffered a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder in a collision with teammate Robbie Grossman on Sunday. An exam on Monday confirmed the initial diagnosis. While surgery won't be needed, the clock is obviously ticking for him to make it back this year. Yesterday, 4:17 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Cozart not in Monday's lineup
    Zack Cozart is not in Monday's lineup versus the Angels.

    Advice: It's just a routine day of maintenance. Jose Peraza will start at shortstop and hit second. Yesterday, 4:01 pm
  • Diaz (thumb) gets good news at checkup
    Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said that Aledmys Diaz (thumb) heard good news during a checkup with doctors on Monday.

    Advice: The plan calls for Diaz to report to Florida on Tuesday, with the hope that live at-bats aren't too far off. The rookie shortstop has been on the disabled list since the end of July with a hairline fracture in his thumb, but he could still be a factor for the stretch run. Greg Garcia and Jedd Gyorko will continue to fill in at shortstop for now. Yesterday, 2:57 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Addison Russell out of Cubs' lineup Monday
    Addison Russell is out of the Cubs' starting lineup Monday night against the Pirates.

    Advice: Javier Baez is starting at shortstop and batting eighth versus Pittsburgh left-hander Steven Brault. This appears to be a simple day of rest for Russell. Yesterday, 12:43 pm
  • Gleyber Torres paces Yankees with four hits
    Yankees SS prospect Gleyber Torres notched four hits in Sunday's win for High-A Tampa.

    Advice: He also scored three runs as the Yankees cruised to an 8-2 win over visiting Brevard County. The 19-year-old has seen mixed results since joining Tampa last month. In 28 games, he's hit .266 with 18 runs, six doubles, two homers, 19 RBI and a pair of steals. Torres offers a rare blend of speed and power (particularly for a shortstop) but he's still at least a couple years away from making it in the big leagues. Yesterday, 12:30 pm

  • Amed Rosario explodes for three hits Sunday
    Mets SS prospect Amed Rosario tallied three hits Sunday in Double-A Binghamton's loss to Bowie.

    Advice: Rosario plated both Mets runs while collecting his 13th triple of the season. The 20-year-old has enjoyed a breakout year, hitting .319 with 22 doubles, 67 RBI and 16 steals across 445 at-bats for Binghamton and High-A St. Lucie. He's emerged as the Mets' top prospect and could arrive in the big leagues sooner than expected. Asdrubal Cabrera still has two years remaining on his contract so the Mets don't have to rush Rosario to the majors, though he could force the issue with another strong year in 2017. Yesterday, 12:20 pm

  • Ozzie Albies tallied three hits in Sunday's win
    Braves SS prospect Ozzie Albies broke out for three hits Sunday in a win for Double-A Mississippi.

    Advice: His two-run triple put the Braves ahead for good in the ninth inning. The 19-year-old has hit an impressive .389 during his four-game hitting streak. Albies spent some time in Triple-A earlier this year but was sent down after hitting only .248 over 222 at-bats. He's looked more comfortable in the Southern League, batting .323 with 49 runs and 19 steals over 75 games for Mississippi. Yesterday, 11:39 am

  • Raul Mondesi's three-run triple sinks Red Sox
    Raul Mondesi delivered a three-run triple in the sixth inning, propelling the Royals to a 10-4 victory over the Red Sox on Sunday night in Boston.

    Advice: The Royals entered the sixth inning trailing 4-2, but erupted for eight runs in the frame, highlighted by Mondesi's bases-clearing triple that put them ahead to stay. Penciled in as the club's starting second baseman for the remainder of the season, Mondesi is hitting .189/.232/.300 with a homer and 10 RBI in his limited action this season. Sunday, 8:37 pm
  • Crawford goes yard on two-hit night
    Brandon Crawford roped a solo home run on a two-hit night as the Giants lost to the Braves on Saturday.

    Advice: The shortstop was batting in the clean-up spot tonight and obliged by hitting his 12th home run of the season. The solo shot gave the Giants an early lead but they couldn't hold on. Crawford carries a .274 batting average with 75 RBI and 55 runs scored. Saturday, 9:23 pm
