  • Wieters socks two-run homer against Astros
    Matt Wieters socked a two-run homer, propelling the Nationals to a 4-3 victory over the Astros on Tuesday night in Houston.

    Advice: Wieters' two-run blast off of Charlie Morton in the fourth inning gave the Nationals a 4-3 advantage, and that's how the score would remain for the duration. He also drew a walk, finishing the night 1-for-3 with a pair of runs scored. On the season, Wieters is slashing a disappointing .232/.290/.365 with nine homers and 46 RBI.

  • Austin Hedges launches three-run homer
    Austin Hedges singled and belted a three-run homer Tuesday in St. Louis.

    Advice: Hedges' blast to left field in the seventh just cleared the wall and officially broke the game open. He's put up a lowly .219 average and .256 on-base percentage, but Hedges has been adequate enough for fantasy owners with his 16 longballs. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:23 pm
  • Mike Zunino reaches base three times
    Mike Zunino singled twice and drew a walk in Tuesday's loss to the Braves.

    Advice: The Mariners managed only five hits and three walks on the night against Lucas Sims and the Braves' bullpen, but their catcher had a nice night. Zunino has four multi-hit games over his last seven starts, although he went hitless in his other three games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:29 pm

    Diamondbacks placed C Jeff Mathis on the 10-day disabled list with an avulsion fracture in his right hand.

    Advice: Mathis suffered the injury in Monday's series opener against the Mets when he got hit on the throwing hand by a foul tip. If he's done for the season, which seems probable, the veteran catcher will finish with a .213/.276/.322 batting line in 58 games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:32 pm

  • Jeff Mathis diagnosed with hand fracture
    Jeff Mathis has been diagnosed with an avulsion fracture in his right hand.

    Advice: Arizona Republic beat writer Nick Piecoro says that means the ligament came off the bone, pulling fragments of the bone with it. This figures to be a season-ending injury for Mathis, who will finish with a weak .213/.276/.322 batting line in 58 games. The veteran catcher is due $2 million from the Diamondbacks in 2018.

  • Maxwell (head) appears as pinch-hitter
    Bruce Maxwell (head) entered Monday's game against the Orioles as a pinch-hitter and went 0-for-2.

    Advice: Maxwell took a foul tip off the mask Saturday and didn't play on Sunday. There's a good chance he's back in the lineup on Tuesday. The 26-year-old is batting .214/.317/.279 through 52 games with the A's this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:23 am
  • Roberto Perez homers, assists in walk-off
    Roberto Perez homered in the bottom of the second inning and helped the Indians earn a 5-4 walk-off win in the bottom of the ninth Monday night against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Perez got Cleveland on the board with a three-run blast off Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez and later drove in the winning run on a sacrifice bunt that was botched by Red Sox infielder Brock Holt. The 28-year-old backup catcher is slashing .180/.271/.273 with two home runs and 22 RBI in 50 games this season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:08 pm
  • Jeff Mathis exits game with bruised hand
    Jeff Mathis left Monday's game against the Mets with a right hand contusion.

    Advice: Mathis initially remained in the game after being hit with a foul tip, but he was eventually pulled. It's not clear whether the Diamondbacks have already sent Mathis for X-rays and they came back clean or if the exam still needs to take place. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:32 pm

  • Bruce Maxwell (head) feeling much better
    Bruce Maxwell (head) said Monday that he's feeling much better.

    Advice: Maxwell took a foul tip off the mask Saturday and had trouble sleeping that night, but he said he got 11 hours of sleep Sunday night. He's sitting out again Monday in favor of Dustin Garneau, but it sounds like he could be back in there soon. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:28 pm
  • Ryan Hanigan dealing with a groin strain
    Ryan Hanigan said after Sunday's game that he's "a little banged uo" with a slight groin strain.

    Advice: It doesn't sound like it's serious enough to force him to the disabled list, but is something worth monitoring. The veteran backstop is hitting .255/.317/.340 with two homers and 12 RBI in 105 plate appearances on the season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:57 pm

  • Omar Narvaez collects RBI in win on Sunday
    Omar Narvaez went 1-for-4 with an RBI as the White Sox defeated the Rangers on Sunday afternoon in Arlington.

    Advice: Narvaez opened the scoring in the contest with an RBI single off of A.J. Griffin in the fourth inning. He came around to score on a double by Tyler Saladino later in the frame. The backstop has done a serviceable job at the dish this season, slashing .270/.367/.321 with one homer and 13 RBI in 69 games. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:32 pm
  • Avila hits walkoff two-run single vs. Toronto
    Alex Avila hit a walkoff two-run single in the bottom of the 10th inning as the Cubs defeated the Blue Jays 6-5 on Sunday at Wrigley Field.

    Advice: Toronto took a two-run lead in the top of the 10th, but closer Roberto Osuna couldn't make it stick -- and Blue Jays catcher Rafael Lopez didn't help the cause. Avila came off the bench in this one, drawing a walk in his first plate appearance before playing the role of hero in his second. The 30-year-old catcher has 10 RBI in 12 games since joining the defending World Series champions. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:12 pm

  • Flowers hits grand slam as Braves rout Reds
    Tyler Flowers hit a grand slam in the fifth inning of Sunday's 8-1 rout of the Reds.

    Advice: It was the only hit of the game for Flowers, but it was obviously a big one. The 31-year-old catcher boasts a career-best .292/.384/.468 batting line with 11 home runs and 43 RBI in 83 total games this season. He holds a team-friendly $4 million club option for 2018 and may be a candidate for a contract extension this winter. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:00 pm

Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:22 pm
  • Suzuki homers among three hits against Reds
    Kurt Suzuki went 3-for-4 with a double, a two-run home run and two runs scored in Saturday's loss to the Reds.

    Advice: Suzuki remains the backup for starter Tyler Flowers, but the 33-year-old now has 13 home runs in 57 games this season. On Saturday, he hit a two-run dong in the seventh inning off Reds reliever Asher Wojciechowski. He's still only playing a couple days a week behind Flowers, but Suzuki is making the most of it, batting .269/.346/.527 in 186 at-bats on the year. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:40 pm
  • Matt Wieters absent Saturday versus Padres
    Matt Wieters is not in the Nationals' lineup Saturday against the Padres.

    Advice: It's just a maintenance day for Wieters, who is in the midst of a 1-for-20 dry spell. Jose Lobaton will start behind the plate and bat eighth Saturday against Padres left-hander Travis Wood. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:27 pm
  • Ramos goes 3-for-4 in loss to Mariners
    Wilson Ramos went 3-for-4 as his squad was pummeled by the Mariners on Friday.

    Advice: The rest of the Rays' roster managed just one knock in the ballgame. Ramos has nine hits in his last four starts since fixing a flaw in his swing on Monday. Prior to that game he had a .170 batting average for the season. He is up to .224 now. The veteran is capable of being one of the top hitting catchers in the league when he's hot. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:33 pm
  • Hanigan scratched Thursday due to illness

  • Wilson Ramos not in Rays lineup Wednesday
    Wilson Ramos is not in the Rays' starting lineup on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Ramos homered for the second straight game Tuesday, but he'll take a seat versus Blue Jays right-hander Marcus Stroman. Jesus Sucre is starting at catcher and batting ninth. Lucas Duda will DH and bat second. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:52 pm
  • Wilson Ramos homers for second straight game
    Wilson Ramos went 3-for-4 and homered for the second straight game in Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Ramos reportedly figured something out with his stance during batting practice Monday, and he's experienced immediate positive results since, hitting a pair of homers and reaching base six times the last two nights. He had been ice cold but is certainly capable of being a difference-maker at the catcher position in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:36 pm
  • Mike Zunino hits 18th homer
    Mike Zunino went 2-for-4 and hit his 18th homer Monday against the Orioles.

    Advice: Zunino's average has been tumbling pretty steadily -- he's hitting .173 since the beginning of July -- but the power production has kept coming; he's slugging .462 in 277 at-bats. Since the beginning of 2016, he's totaled 30 homers in 441 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:03 pm
  • Cam Gallager hits grand slam for Royals
    Cam Gallagher had a grand slam for his first major league homer Monday and led the Royals to a 6-2 win over the A's.

    Advice: Gallagher also doubled and walked in this one. He's supposed to play behind Drew Butera with Salvador Perez out, but this will help his case for more at-bats. He was hitting .294/.339/.408 in Triple-A before getting the call last week. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:57 pm

  • Bruce Maxwell goes 0-for-4 in loss
    Bruce Maxwell went 0-for-4 on Monday and is 4-for-29 with no extra-base hits this month.

    Advice: The A's decided to let Stephen Vogt go in order to give Maxwell an extended look behind the plate, but after a fine start offensively, he's been horrible this last month, going 8-for-65 with no homers since July 15. He'll need to do better to secure a place in Oakland's 2018 plans. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:51 pm
  • Wilson Ramos hits fourth homer of season
    Wilson Ramos hit his fourth home run of the year Monday in the Rays' loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Ramos went deep for a solo shot in the second inning off Jays starter Nick Tepesch, but that was the only meaningful offense of the night for the visiting Rays. Ramos has batted just .175/.211/.320 since debuting with Tampa Bay in late June, though he is definitely capable of a strong finish. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:10 pm
