• Collects fifth steal
    Hicks went 1-for-4 with a double, a walk, two RBI and a stolen base in Friday's 9-8 loss to the Guardians.

    Advice: Hicks ended an eight-game RBI drought -- in that span, he hit .348, but with just one extra-base hit. The outfielder has also logged two steals over his last five games. For the season, Hicks sports a .264/.356/.402 slash line, five steals, eight home runs, 36 RBI, 43 runs scored and nine doubles through 292 plate appearances between the Orioles and the Yankees.

  • Not expected back in 2023
    Angels manager Phil Nevin said Saturday that Rendon (lower leg) isn't expected to play again before the end of the season, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    Advice: Rendon has been participating in baseball activities since early September as he recovers from a fractured tibia, but Nevin said Rendon hasn't progressed enough to be activated before the end of the year. Rendon will finish 2023 with a .236/.361/.318 slash line to go along with two homers and 22 RBI across 183 plate appearances. Rotowire.com 8 minutes ago

  • Drives in three
    Santander went 3-for-4 with a double, three RBI and one run scored in Friday's 9-8 loss to the Guardians.

    Advice: Santander has three multi-hit efforts, three doubles and five RBI over his last four games. The outfielder provided one RBI with each of his three hits Friday. He's up to a .257/.326/.476 slash line, 27 home runs, 89 RBI, 79 runs scored, 40 doubles and five stolen bases through 146 contests this season. Rotowire.com 10 minutes ago
  • Notches steal Friday
    Brennan went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk, one RBI, one stolen base and two runs scored in Friday's 9-8 win over the Orioles.

    Advice: Brennan has done little in the way of counting stats in September with two steals, six RBI and eight runs scored over 19 games. All four of his extra-base hits this month have been doubles, but he is batting .308 in that span. The outfielder is up to 13 thefts with a .266/.300/.359 slash line, five home runs, 41 RBI and 40 runs scored through 133 contests overall. Rotowire.com 12 minutes ago

  • Optioned to Triple-A
    The Red Sox optioned Weiss to Triple-A Worcester on Saturday, Gabrielle Starr of the Boston Herald reports.

    Advice: Weiss has performed well since being recalled from Triple-A on Sept. 9, allowing just two runs over 8.2 innings while striking out eight batters and walking four. However, the return of Kenley Jansen (illness) will force Weiss back to Worcester for the final days of the minor-league season. Rotowire.com 15 minutes ago
  • Heads to bench
    Andrus will sit Saturday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Andrus has hit well down the stretch, slashing .347/.368/.521 over his last 33 games. He finds himself on the bench for the second time in three games, however, with the White Sox seemingly seeing no reason to give everyday at-bats to a 35-year-old on an expiring contract in a season that's long since gone off track. Lenyn Sosa will be Saturday's second baseman. Rotowire.com 16 minutes ago

  • Returns from COVID IL
    The Red Sox reinstated Jansen from the COVID-19 injured list Saturday, Gabrielle Starr of the Boston Herald reports.

    Advice: Jansen tested positive for COVID-19 on Sept. 13 and will now return to Boston's bullpen after a 10-day absence, sending Zack Weiss back to Triple-A Worcester. The 35-year-old closer has allowed five runs in three innings across his last five appearances, and he hasn't recorded a save since Aug. 20. Rotowire.com 19 minutes ago
  • On bench Saturday
    Duvall is not in the lineup Saturday against the White Sox.

    Advice: Masataka Yoshida, Ceddanne Rafaela and Alex Verdugo are the starting outfielders for the Red Sox on Saturday. They will go up against right-hander Dylan Cease while Duvall has primarily been used against lefties as of late. The outfielder has had a rough September, and since Sept. 16 he has gone 4-for-23 with a .508 OPS. Rotowire.com 20 minutes ago
