  • Solarte singles in win versus Phillies
    Yangervis Solarte went 1-for-4 in Monday's 1-0 win against the Phillies.

    Advice: Solarte is now riding a six-game hitting streak, having come into the contest with three consecutive multi-hit games. Across his time with the Yankees and Padres, Solarte is slashing .262 /.343/.376 with 10 homers.

  • Andrew Romine goes 3-for-4, knocks in two
    Andrew Romine went 3-for-4 with two RBI against the Twins in Monday's victory.

    Advice: The Tigers have soured on Eugenio Suarez, making Romine the primary shortstop by default. They'll be content with the steady defense they'll get from the former Angel. Offensive outbursts like this won't be common at all.

  • Ben Zobrist wins game for Rays
    Ben Zobrist went 2-for-5 with a game-ending single in the bottom of the ninth as the Rays edged the Yankees 1-0 on Monday.

    Advice: The game featured 11 hits, 10 of them singles. Three of those came in the bottom of the ninth off Shawn Kelley. Zobrist is 5-for-13 with over his last three games. His homer Sunday was his first since July 29.

  • Ryan Flaherty hits seventh homer
    Ryan Flaherty hit his seventh homer Monday in the win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: It was a two-run shot off Marcus Stroman. Flaherty started at second base tonight and later moved to third after Jonathan Schoop was brought in for defense. Schoop remains a starter, so Flaherty is really competing with Kelly Johnson for time at third. He's helped his case lately by hitting .343 in 35 at-bats this month.

  • Cabrera hopes to return during homestand
    The Padres are hoping to get Everth Cabrera (hamstring) back at some point during their September 15-24 homestand.

    Advice: Cabrera is currently working out in the Instructional League. He's been sidelined since mid-August with a strained left hamstring but could provide a few steals in the final weeks for fantasy owners that might need them.

  • Rockies call up INF Adames from Triple-A
    Rockies recalled INF Cristhian Adames from Double-A Tulsa.

    Advice: Adames, 23, batted .288/.345/.368 with three home runs, 52 RBI, and 12 steals over 126 games this season between Double- and Triple-A. He was already on the 40-man roster, so the Rockies will bring him up as an extra infielder for the final two weeks.
    Yesterday, 2:39 pm
  • D-Backs call up INF Nick Ahmed
    Diamondbacks recalled INF Nick Ahmed from Triple-A Reno.

    Advice: Reno's season came to an end on Sunday, so Ahmed will rejoin the Diamondbacks. Known for his excellent defense, the 24-year-old hit .228/.254/.316 in 19 games with the big club earlier this year.
    Yesterday, 2:06 pm
  • Derek Jeter out of Monday's lineup
    Derek Jeter is not in Monday's lineup against the Rays.

    Advice: Jeter is hitless in his last 24 at-bats -- the second-worst hitless streak of his career -- so perhaps a day off will do him some good. Brendan Ryan will start at shortstop.
    Yesterday, 1:05 pm
  • Gregorius scores twice, D'backs defeat Padres
    Didi Gregorius went 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored to lead the Diamondbacks past the Padres 8-6 on Sunday.

    Advice: Gregorius has now scored twice in back-to-back games. He added an RBI single in the eighth inning. The shortstop has struggled at the dish this year, batting a meager .211/.286/.351 in 69 games this season.
    Sunday, 7:28 pm
  • Solarte has two hits, two runs in loss to ARI
    Yangervis Solarte went 2-for-5 with two runs scored in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Solarte turned in his third straight multi-hit game, scoring runs in the third and ninth innings. He's got hits in six of his last seven games, including those four two-hit efforts, to raise his average to .274 since joining the Padres. Solarte is batting .262/.344/.377 overall this year.
    Sunday, 7:25 pm
  • Owings has two hits, stolen base against Pads
    Chris Owings went 2-for-5 with an RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in Sunday's win over the Padres.

    Advice: Owings had an RBI single and a run scored in the fifth inning. He also stole his eighth base in the inning. Since coming back from a left shoulder injury, the 23-year-old has struggled, going 9-for-43 (.209) with no extra-base hits. The injury derailed what was a decent rookie campaign.
    Sunday, 7:16 pm
  • Gordon steals 61st base in win over Giants
    Dee Gordon went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Sunday's win over the Giants.

    Advice: Gordon's steal was his 61st of the season, still the most in the majors. The second baseman also added two hits, his third straight two-hit game. He's got a modest eight-game hitting streak going, hitting .350 (14-for-40) with three steals and 11 runs scored in that time. Gordon is hitting .289 with a .707 OPS on the year.

  • Petit's three-run homer helps to down Angels
    Gregorio Petit went 2-for-4 with a double, home run and three RBI as the Astros bested the Angels 6-1 Sunday.

    Advice: Petit hit a three-run shot off Angels starter Hector Santiago in the second inning, just his second major league home run. He also doubled and scored in the fifth inning. The 29-year-old is hitting .275/.296/.449 in 26 games since being promoted in late July.
    Sunday, 6:16 pm
  • Sardinas has two doubles, four RBI vs. Braves
    Luis Sardinas went 3-for-5 with two doubles, four RBI and two runs scored in the Rangers' lopsided 10-3 win over the Braves Sunday.

    Advice: Sardinas was all over the place for the Rangers, delivering an RBI double in the fourth inning, an RBI single in the fifth and another double, a two-run knock, in the sixth. The good day raised Sardinas' average from .253 to .271 in one game, and he doubled his RBI total with the performance. It's a glimpse of what could be for the 21-year-old.
    Sunday, 4:57 pm
  • Peralta hits 21st home run in win over Rox
    Jhonny Peralta hit his 21st home run of the season in Sunday's win over the Rockies.

    Advice: After a Matt Holliday RBI double got the Cardinals on the board, Peralta followed with a two-run shot. It was his only hit in four at-bats. The shortstop has been a surprising offensive contributor this season, with 69 RBI to go with a .264/.340/.456 line.
    Sunday, 4:10 pm
  • Bogaerts homers, drives in four to top Royals
    Xander Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with a home run and four RBI to lead the Red Sox to an 8-4 win over the Royals on Sunday.

    Advice: Bogaerts hit a three-run homer in the third inning before adding a sacrifice fly in the seventh. He's hit in eight straight games, including blasting three home runs, and the 21-year-old is batting .368 in September. It's a promising finish for Bogaerts after he struggled for much of the season.
    Sunday, 3:56 pm
  • Betts has two hits, scores twice vs. Royals
    Mookie Betts went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Royals.

    Advice: Ho hum, another two-hit day for the 21-year-old. The multi-hit game was the seventh this month for Betts, who is hitting .333 with 14 runs scored in September. After a terrible start to his major league career, Betts is now hitting .289/.365/.444 overall.
    Sunday, 3:50 pm
  • Baez has run scored, stolen base vs. Pirates
    Javier Baez went 1-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored against the Pirates on Sunday.

    Advice: Baez also walked in the game. He generated a run with his legs in the third inning, beating out an infield single before stealing second. The throw allowed him to go to third, and Baez scored on a sacrifice fly. He's noted for his prodigious power, but Baez now has four steals in four attempts.
    Sunday, 1:46 pm
  • Tampa Bay to promote infielder Nick Franklin
    Bob Sutton of the Burlington Times-News reports that the Rays will recall Nick Franklin.

    Advice: Triple-A Durham finished their International League playoff run Saturday, so Franklin will now get a chance with the big club. The Rays will finish a series in Toronto on Sunday, so Franklin seems likely to join the club on Monday in Tampa. Acquired from the Mariners in the three-team deal in July, Franklin has hit .272/.366/.412 with 11 homers and 11 steals at the Triple-A level this season and should see pretty regular playing time down the stretch. He's worth owning in deeper leagues.
    Sunday, 6:33 am
  • Eric Sogard goes 3-for-4
    Eric Sogard went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base Saturday against the Mariners.

    Advice: Sogard has regained the playing time he lost while hitting .186/.256/.218 during the first half of the season. He's at .294/.381/.373 in 102 at-bats since the All-Star break, so he's back playing full-time against righties now.
    Saturday, 9:52 pm

  • Dee Gordon steals 60th base
    Dee Gordon went 2-for-7, scored three times and swiped his 60th base Saturday against the Giants.

    Advice: Gordon is the first player to swipe 60 bases in a season since Michael Bourn in 2011 and the first Dodger to do so since Juan Pierre swiped 64 bases in 2007.

  • Zobrist reaches three times in loss to Jays
    Ben Zobrist went 2-for-3 and scored a run in Saturday afternoon's loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Zobrist also drew a walk in the contest, reaching base safely in three of his four trips to the plate. He's having another solid season atop the Rays lineup, slashing .270/.355/.394 with nine homers and 45 RBI.
    Saturday, 12:56 pm
  • Baez launches homer in loss to Pirates
    Javier Baez launched a solo homer Friday against the Pirates.

    Advice: It was his eighth home run and his first since August 23. We know Baez has the power potential, but the 21-year-old is hitting just .173 through 37 games in the majors and has struck out 67 times in 150 at-bats. If there's any positive to take away, he has walked six times this month after drawing just four free during his first month in the big leagues. However, he still has plenty of work to do.
    Friday, 9:03 pm
  • Andrelton Simmons has two hits in loss
    Andrelton Simmons went 2-for-4 in a losing effort against the Rangers on Friday.

    Advice: On a night where the Braves could get very little done against Derek Holland and company, Simmons was the only member of the team to pick up multiple hits. He is in the midst of a highly disappointing season, slashing a mere .242/.286/.331 with seven homers and 45 RBI in his 133 games.
    Friday, 9:02 pm
  • Jeter (elbow) hitless in return to lineup
    Derek Jeter (elbow) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

    Advice: Jeter sat out the first game after being plunked on the elbow on Thursday night, but he managed to return for the nightcap. While that's good news, the 40-year-old is now hitting just .139 (5-for-36) this month and owns a measly .253/.301/.302 batting line in his final season.
    Friday, 7:49 pm
  • Derek Jeter (elbow) not in lineup
    Derek Jeter (elbow) is sitting out the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

    Advice: Jeter was plunked on the left elbow by a pitch Thursday. Although X-rays were negative, he was not in the Yankees' clubhouse prior to the afternoon tilt. It's not clear whether he'll be ready to play in the second game of the doubleheader.
    Friday, 11:08 am
  • Red Sox to play Mookie Betts at second base
    Mookie Betts is expected to play second base "fairly regularly" the rest of the way.

    Advice: The Red Sox still see Betts as an outfielder for the long-term, but he'll play second base now that Dustin Pedroia (wrist) and Brock Holt (dizziness) are both sidelined. We could see him there as soon as Friday. The move clears up a potential logjam with Rusney Castillo expected to make his major league debut soon.
    Thursday, 2:51 pm
  • Cabrera unlikely to rejoin Pads this weekend
    Everth Cabrera is unlikely to rejoin the Padres this weekend.

    Advice: "Let's see how this whole process plays out, even how his hamstring is," Padres manager Bud Black said. "I still think there's some information-gathering with MLB and authorities that I'm not privy to. Organizationally, we're gonna wait for all this to get settled and cleared. Then if this all plays out positively, he can get active." Cabrera was reportedly arrested for a DUI last week, likely what Black is alluding to. He's also been dealing with a hamstring strain. It sounds like a suspension of some sort may be coming down the pipe.

  • Dee Gordon not in LAD lineup Wednesday
    Dee Gordon is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup on Wednesday night versus the Padres.

    Advice: It's just a routine day off. Justin Turner will start at second base and Yasiel Puig leads off.

  • Jhonny Peralta getting a night off
    Jhonny Peralta is not in the Cardinals' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: It appears to just be a day of rest. Pete Kozma is at shortstop in Peralta's place.
    Wednesday, 11:09 am
  • Baez has double, SB but Cubs fall to the Jays
    Javier Baez finished 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, and a stolen base, but the Cubs were handed a loss by the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

    Advice: Baez had been slumping, posting a .300 OPS in 10 games dating back to August 30. He scored both of the Cubs' runs on the evening: on a sacrifice fly in the first inning and on Welington Castillo's single in the fifth. The 21-year-old rookie has seven home runs, 15 RBI, three stolen bases, and a .175/.229/.364 slash line in his first 153 plate appearances in the major leagues.
    Tuesday, 8:39 pm
  • Bogaerts homers, reaches three times vs. O's
    Xander Bogaerts went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in a loss to the Orioles on Tuesday.

    Advice: Bogaerts hit the solo shot, his 10th of the season, off Orioles starter Chris Tillman in the fourth inning. It was the Red Sox' lone run of the game. He almost scored the team's second run as well, but he was thrown out at the plate in the ninth inning. A deep slump has Bogaerts' overall line down, but he's hitting .371 (13-for-35) with two home runs and six RBI in September as he looks to end the season on a high note.
    Tuesday, 8:24 pm
  • Andrelton Simmons goes 0-for-4 in loss
    Andrelton Simmons went 0-for-4 on Monday, leaving him 3-for-27 this month.

    Advice: Simmons hit .289/.298/.489 with three homers through the first month of the season. Since then, he's come in at .228/.280/.294 with four homers in 394 at-bats. Obviously, he still has his outrageous glove working in his favor, but as a fantasy shortstop, he's been quite the disappointment.
    Monday, 7:13 pm
  • Javier Baez in 2-for-33 slump
    Javier Baez went hitless in a third straight game Monday and is in a 2-for-33 slump.

    Advice: At least he only struck out once tonight. That Baez is facing a learning curve is hardly a surprise. He's a massive talent, but he's always chased too many pitchers and now he's facing pitchers more capable of throwing tempting breaking balls that dive out of the zone. His average is down to .164 now, and he's fanned 62 times in 140 at-bats.
    Monday, 6:49 pm
  • Everth Cabrera could be activated this week
    Everth Cabrera (hamstring) could be activated from the disabled list this weekend.

    Advice: He's been out since mid-August with a strained left hamstring but has apparently made good progress in recent days. Cabrera has hit just .232/.272/.300 when healthy this season and might not be guaranteed his starting role when he returns.
    Monday, 5:16 pm
    Disabled List
  • Peralta blasts 20th home run against Brewers
    Jhonny Peralta went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Peralta hit a homer off Brewers reliever Alfredo Figaro in the ninth inning for his third hit of the day. The home run was Peralta's 20th of the season, the fifth time in his career he's hit the 20-homer plateau. Peralta has 65 RBI with a .268/.342/.459 line.
    Sep 7, 2:57 pm
  • Ben Zobrist walks four times in win over O's
    Ben Zobrist went 0-for-1, but drew four walks and scored a run in Saturday's victory over the Orioles.

    Advice: The versatile Zobrist, who has been functioning as the team's leadoff hitter in recent weeks, is now slashing .272/.360/.401 with nine homers, 44 RBI and nine stolen bases on the season.
    Sep 6, 1:39 pm
  • Ryan Flaherty goes hitless in loss to Rays
    Ryan Flaherty went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout as the Orioles fell to the Rays.

    Advice: Flaherty drew the start at shortstop in the place of J.J. Hardy who is dealing with a hamstring injury. He has had a rough season at the plate, slashing .201/.265/.326 with six homers and 24 RBI.
