  • Red Sox transfer Robbie Ross to 60-day DL
    Red Sox transferred LHP Robbie Ross to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Nothing has changed in the recovery for the left-hander, this was done merely as a procedural move to free up a roster spot for the promotion of Rafael Devers on Monday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:26 pm

  • Red Sox option Kyle Martin back to Triple-A
    Red Sox optioned RHP Kyle Martin to Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Martin was only with the club for a couple of days as an extra bullpen arm. The 26-year-old owns a 3.86 ERA, 1.71 WHIP and 1/2 K/BB ratio in 2 1/3 innings at the big league level this season. He should get another chance with the Red Sox when rosters expand in September.

  • Ross Stripling allows one run in long relief
    Coming on to replace an injured Clayton Kershaw (back), Ross Stripling tossed three innings of one-run ball in Sunday's 10-inning win over the Braves.

    Advice: Kershaw managed just two innings before a tight back forced him out of action. Enter Stripling, who struck out two, walked two and allowed two hits (including an RBI double to Brandon Phillips) over his three innings of work. He owns a 3.55 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in 27 appearances this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:07 pm
  • Blach hit up for five runs in loss to Padres
    Ty Blach yielded five runs on eight hits over seven innings in Sunday's loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Blach bounced back allowing a solo home run to Wil Myers in the first inning to fire off a pair of scoreless frames, but the train would go off the tracks in the fourth. That frame saw a two-run double surrendered to Jabari Blash, an RBI double to Hector Sanchez and an RBI single to Cory Spangenberg to put the Giants in a 5-1 hole. This outing is made all the more disappointing for the fact that Blach gave up just one run in seven innings against the Indians in his previous start. He will have a tough task ahead of him when he carries his 4.50 ERA and 1.32 WHIP into a road date with the Dodgers in his next scheduled outing. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:08 pm

  • Justin Wilson secures 12th save on Sunday
    Justin Wilson secured his 12th save of the season on Sunday, allowing one run on one hit and a walk over 1 1/3 innings against the Twins.

    Advice: Wilson was summoned to get the final out in the eighth inning with the Tigers leading by a run, then was left on to finish the ninth. He racked up three strikeouts in his outing. His name continues to be very popular on the trade front and it looks increasingly likely that he'll be donning a new uniform in August. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:38 pm
  • Bridwell effective over seven frames vs. BOS
    Parker Bridwell allowed two runs on five hits over seven innings in Sunday's win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: Bridwell was not striking out batters left and right in this one, finishing with just three of them (against one walk) over his seven innings of work. He was fantastic nonetheless. Deven Marrero knocked him for an RBI single in the fifth and Hanley Ramirez socked a solo homer off the right-hander in the sixth, but that was all she wrote in terms of scoring on Bridwell's watch. He will bring a 3.09 ERA and 1.29 WHIP (seven starts) into a home date with the Blue Jays in his next scheduled outing. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:54 pm
  • Travis Wood hit hard again in no-decision
    Travis Wood was hit hard in a no-decision on Sunday, giving up four runs on seven hits over 4 2/3 frames against the White Sox.

    Advice: Wood walked one and struck out four on the afternoon. He started the day strong, with four scoreless innings, but seemed to tire in the fifth where Adam Engel delivered a three-run double and scored on a double by Jose Abreu. If he makes another start in the Royals' rotation it will come on Saturday against the Red Sox in Boston. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:33 pm
  • Leclerc earns second save Sunday vs. TB
    Jose Leclerc earned his second save of the year on Sunday afternoon against the Rays.

    Advice: Leclerc issued two walks but netted two strikeouts in a scoreless bottom of the ninth inning at Tropicana Field. He's been sharing ninth-inning duties lately with Alex Claudio, though Keone Kela could also factor into the closer mix down the stretch in Texas. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:30 pm
  • Boxberger allows three runs in the eighth
    Brad Boxberger allowed three earned runs in the top of the eighth inning Sunday as the Rays fell to the visiting Rangers.

    Advice: Tampa Bay was leading 5-3 when Boxberger was handed the ball, and he surrendered back-to-back homers to Rougned Odor and Carlos Gomez as Texas jumped ahead 6-5. The right-hander took a blown save and the loss. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:27 pm
  • Neil Ramirez outrighted to Triple-A
    Mets sent RHP Neil Ramirez outright to Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Ramirez cleared waivers after being removed from the 40-man roster and will accept an outright assignment. He's struck out well over a batter per inning with a few clubs this season but has also posted a 7.18 ERA. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:16 am

  • Reymin Guduan optioned to Triple-A
    Astros optioned LHP Reymin Guduan to Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Guduan has allowed seven runs over eight relief innings this season. He'll be back eventually. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:00 am

  • Wily Peralta activated from disabled list
    Brewers activated RHP Wily Peralta from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: Peralta missed the last month with a strained calf. He'll be used in middle relief. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:57 am
  • Rob Scahill designated for assignment
    Brewers designated RHP Rob Scahill for assignment.

    Advice: It's the second time in the last month and third time since January that he's been designated for assignment. Scahill can elect free agency if he wants. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:55 am

  • J.C. Ramirez shows well at home
    J.C. Ramirez allowed three runs - one earned - and five hits with three walks and six strikeouts across six innings in a win against the Red Sox on Saturday.

    Advice: Ramirez has alternated wins and losses in the month of July, posting quality starts in two of his past three outings while lasting at least six innings in each appearance. The win at home was a rarity, as he is still just 2-5 with a 5.10 ERA over 10 starts and one relief appearance at the Big A. He is 7-3 with a 3.60 ERA in nine starts and two relief outings. His next scheduled start is set for July 27 in Cleveland. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:37 am
  • Sean Doolittle picks up second save for Nats
    Sean Doolittle allowed one unearned run with a walk and a strikeout for his second save Saturday in Arizona.

    Advice: Doolittle threw 13 of his 18 pitches for strikes, and needed to work a little overtime after Anthony Rendon's throwing error extended the inning and helped a run come in. Ryan Madson and Sean Doolittle have been a nice one-two punch in the eighth and ninth inning, which is exactly what Washington hoped after acquiring them. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:59 pm
  • Justin Wilson rebounds with scoreless ninth
    Justin Wilson rebounded from a blown save his last time out, working a scoreless ninth inning against the Twins on Friday to earn his 11th save of the season.

    Advice: Wilson did walk a batter, but was able to escape with his two-run lead intact. he has been lights-out this season, compiling a 2.68 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 51/15 K/BB ratio in 37 innings of work. He's extremely likely to be on the move prior to next week's trade deadline, so every clean outing does nothing but increase his overall trade value. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:57 pm
  • Brewers 'aggressive' in talks for RP Wilson
    USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Brewers have been "aggressive" in trade talks for Justin Wilson.

    Advice: Other teams have been as well, of course, with Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reporting earlier this week that 10-12 clubs were in on the left-handed reliever. Wilson seems likelier to set up than close wherever he winds up, and that would be the case in Milwaukee. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:32 am
  • Mets DFA right-hander Neil Ramirez
    Mets designated RHP Neil Ramirez for assignment.

    Advice: Ramirez has allowed 30 runs -- 25 earned -- in 31 1/3 innings of relief this season at the major league level. Josh Smoker was activated from the disabled list Thursday in a corresponding roster move. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:44 am

  • Justin Wilson blows save, takes loss
    Justin Wilson blew his second save and took his fourth loss by giving up two runs in the bottom of the ninth Wednesday against the Royals.

    Advice: Bad timing for Wilson, who is expected to be traded before the deadline, possibly within the next few days. Still, the team that acquires him figures to use him as more of a lefty setup man than as a closer. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:59 pm
  • Red Sox recall Kyle Martin from Pawtucket
    Red Sox recalled RHP Kyle Martin from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: This will be the first major league callup for the 26-year-old right-hander, who owns a 3.47 ERA in 267 1/3 career minor league innings. Martin figures to operate as a mop-up man with Boston. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:40 am
  • 10-12 teams in on Tigers RP Justin Wilson
    Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press hears that Justin Wilson is drawing interest from 10-12 teams.

    Advice: That's not a shock given Wilson's numbers this year (2.29 ERA, 50/13 K/BB ratio in 35 1/3 innings) and the desire for relief help around the league. Wilson will probably lose his closer status if he lands with a contender, which is unfortunate because he's been brilliant in the role for Detroit. The 29-year-old lefty is arbitration-eligible for the 2018 season with free agency coming in 2019. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:41 am
  • Sean Doolittle nails down first save
    Sean Doolittle allowed a run, a hit and a walk in the ninth inning in Tuesday's road outing against the Angels, but he held on for his first save.

    Advice: Doolittle followed up Ryan Madson's scoreless eighth inning, as the Nats showed off their two new toys in the back end of the bullpen in the 4-3 victory at Anaheim. Doolittle and Madson were acquired from the A's on Sunday for a trio of players. The two relievers might share ninth-inning duties in Washington moving forward. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:17 am
  • Ty Blach holds Cleveland offense down
    Ty Blach allowed just one earned run while scattering seven hits across seven innings in a no-decision against the Indians on Tuesday.

    Advice: Blach was outstanding, throwing 64 of his 106 pitches for strikes in the quality start. He is showing why the team elected to keep him in the rotation and move veteran Matt Cain to the bullpen. Blach's next scheduled start is set for Sunday against the offensively-challenged Padres. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:19 am

  • Travis Wood gives up six runs in loss
    Travis Wood surrendered six runs and nine hits in 4 1/3 innings in his start versus the Tigers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Wood was making his first appearance since starting and throwing four-plus innings against the Twins on July 2. It's unclear whether he'll get more starts. He had a 6.28 ERA in 25 appearances as a reliever before being shifted into the rotation. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:21 pm
  • Wily Peralta (calf) throws hitless rehab inn.
    Wily Peralta (calf) threw a hitless inning on Tuesday with Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Peralta issued a walk and allowed an unearned run, but it was a mostly encouraging outing from the 28-year-old right-hander, who was lit up for six runs -- five earned -- while recording only one out in his last rehab appearance with Colorado Springs back on July 8. Peralta has been on the disabled list since June 20 with a right calf strain. There is no definitive timetable for his return to the Brewers' bullpen. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:15 pm
  • Nats 'still weighing trading for a closer'
    Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Nationals are "still weighing trading for a closer."

    Advice: Heyman notes that new acquisitions Ryan Madson and/or Sean Doolittle "could close" for the Nats, but the club wouldn't mind adding a ninth inning man and use Madson and Doolittle in setup roles. Jon Morosi of MLB Network reported earlier Monday that Washington was still in on Justin Wilson, and David Robertson and Zach Britton are potential options, as well. The Nationals had trade talks with the White Sox about Robertson over the offseason. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:25 pm
  • Report: Nats remain interested in Wilson
    Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Nationals continue to show interest in Tigers reliever Justin Wilson.

    Advice: The Nationals acquired Sean Doolittle and Ryan Madson from the Athletics on Sunday, but they aren't done upgrading their roster. According to Morosi, the club would like to add another reliever and possibly another starter, too. Wilson is one of the most popular names on the trade market so far, with the Rays and Astros among the other teams in the mix. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:53 am
  • Report: Rays, Tigers talking Justin Wilson
    Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Rays have expressed "legit interest" in Tigers reliever Justin Wilson and that there is "some traction" in talks.

    Advice: The Rays sit at 49-44, tops in the Wild Card race and three games back in the American League East. They have made improving their bullpen a priority, as FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal hears that they were involved in talks for Sean Doolittle and have also been linked to Pat Neshek. Wilson, 29, is 10-for-11 in save chances this season with a 2.29 ERA and 50/13 K/BB ratio over 35 1/3 innings. The southpaw is under team control through 2018, so he's a nice trade chip for Detroit. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:14 am
  • Bridwell handcuffs Rays until the seventh
    Parker Bridwell allowed two runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings while taking a no-decision in Sunday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Bridwell was coasting with a 2-0 lead up until the seventh inning, when he yielded a game-tying two-run homer to Logan Morrison. He finished up his afternoon's work having struck out eight and walked one. Overall, Bridwell has pitched respectably enough in six starts this season and is now the owner of a 3.18 ERA and 1.36 WHIP. He will try for more of the same in a home start against the Red Sox next time he takes to the mound. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 3:44 pm
  • Nationals acquire Doolittle, Madson from A's
    Nationals acquired LHP Sean Doolittle and RHP Ryan Madson from the Athletics in exchange for RHP Blake Treinen, LHP Jesus Luzardo and 3B Sheldon Neuse.

    Advice: FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal was first to report the deal and it's now official. The Nationals have had the worst bullpen in baseball this season, so adding two relievers in the midst of terrific years certainly helps. Doolittle and Madson might share the closer job in Washington for now, and it wouldn't be a surprise if the Nats are still in the market for another reliever. Treinen could potentially be in the mix for saves in Oakland, although probably not right away. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 10:04 am
  • Parker Bridwell recalled from Triple-A
    Angels recalled RHP Parker Bridwell from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Bridwell will start Sunday against the Rays. He's put up a 3.64 ERA across five starts for the Angels this season. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 9:35 am
  • J.C. Ramirez so-so in Saturday's home loss
    J.C. Ramirez allowed four earned runs, eight hits and a walk with five strikeouts over six innings in Saturday's loss against Tampa Bay.

    Advice: Ramirez was a little shaky, tossing a wild pitch and finding the strike zone with just 61 of his 91 offerings. He has actually been much better on the road than at home, going 1-5 with a 5.50 ERA across 10 appearances (nine starts) at the Big A and 7-3 with a 3.60 ERA over 11 road appearances (nine starts). Unfortunately for Ramirez and his fantasy owners, the Angels will be home for his next start July 22 against David Price and the Red Sox. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 12:24 am
  • Nats pursuing both Doolittle and Madson
    According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the Nationals are looking to acquire both Sean Doolittle and Ryan Madson from the Athletics.

    Advice: The Nats have had their eye on Madson for a while but this is the first time they've been linked to Doolittle. It's a good match on paper with the rebuilding A's looking to bottom out and Washington searching high and low for bullpen help. Doolittle and Madson would both be huge upgrades for the Nats, but they won't come cheap. Washington has also been mentioned as suitors for Brad Hand, Raisel Iglesias, Pat Neshek and Justin Wilson. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 5:30 pm
  • Astros recall left-hander Reymin Guduan
    Astros recalled LHP Reymin Guduan from Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: This will be his third stint with the Astros this year. Look for the 25-year-old to pitch in middle relief. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 4:08 pm

  • Parker Bridwell to start Sunday vs. Rays
    Parker Bridwell will be called up to start Sunday against the Rays.

    Advice: He was sent down during the All-Star break but didn't appear in any games for Triple-A Salt Lake. Bridwell hasn't started a game since July 5 so he should be well-rested. The right-hander has pitched well since moving into the starting rotation, going 3-1 with a 3.64 ERA over five starts for the Halos. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 2:52 pm
  • Astros in on trade talks for Justin Wilson
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Astros are among the teams interested in Justin Wilson.

    Advice: Rosenthal notes that the Astros and Tigers discussed Wilson at the winter meetings but were unable to find a match at that time. Wilson will be one of the most highly sought after relievers to be moved this month, especially since he's got another year of team control. He would likely be used in a setup role in Houston.
