  • Alex Meyer (shoulder) placed on disabled list
    Angels placed RHP Alex Meyer on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to July 20, with right shoulder inflammation.

    Advice: Meyer certainly didn't show any signs of being injured in his last outing, surrendering just one hit over seven shutout innings versus the Nationals. Unfortunately, the tall right-hander has a history of shoulder issues, so this obviously isn't a good sign. Meyer has continued to struggle with his control this season (42 walks), but he holds a 3.74 ERA with 75 strikeouts over 67 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:48 pm

  • Brewers 'fading' in pursuit of Sonny Gray
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Brewers are "fading" in the trade pursuit of Sonny Gray.

    Advice: Joel Sherman of New York Post reported earlier Monday that the Brewers and Yankees were viewed as the "strongest pursuers" of Gray, so this is big news. Milwaukee still figures to trade for a starter, but it's looking unlikelier now that that hurler will be Gray. In addition to the Yankees, the Astros, Braves, Mariners, Twins and Indians have been among the teams connected to the A's right-hander. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:35 pm
  • Hammel yields three earned in no-decision
    Jason Hammel yielded three earned runs over 5 2/3 innings Monday in a no-decision at Detroit.

    Advice: Kansas City wound up winning the game in extra innings. Hammel was cruising until the bottom of the sixth, when the Tigers rallied to tie the game at 3-3 on two walks and three singles. The 34-year-old right-hander stands 4-8 with a 4.81 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, and 87/36 K/BB ratio in 112 1/3 innings this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:22 pm
  • Senzatela yields four runs in loss at STL
    Antonio Senzatela surrendered four earned runs in four innings Monday as the Rockies fell to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Senzatela walked the first two batters he faced in the Cardinals' two-run first inning, setting the tone for the short, ugly outing at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. Randal Grichuk popped the rookie right-hander for a two-run homer in the fourth. Senzatela, 22, is sporting a 4.84 ERA over his first 102 1/3 major league frames. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:01 pm
  • Conley works seven scoreless vs. Rangers
    Adam Conley fired seven scoreless innings Monday in the Marlins' defeat of the Rangers.

    Advice: Conley gave up seven hits, but six of those were singles and he tallied five strikeouts against zero walks over his seven impressive frames. The 27-year-old left-hander still carries a disappointing 5.62 ERA and 1.49 WHIP on the season, but he's capable of a strong finish. A home matchup against the last-place Reds will come next. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:44 pm
  • Gausman throws six scoreless, whiffs eight
    Kevin Gausman struck out eight batters over six shutout innings Monday in the Orioles' 5-0 victory at Tampa Bay.

    Advice: Gauman issued three walks and surrendered five hits, but he kept the Rays from doing any meaningful damage. The 26-year-old right-hander has now put together two excellent pitching lines since Orioles manager Buck Showalter suggested that he might be on the verge of a demotion to the minor leagues. He still has an ugly 5.79 ERA and 1.72 WHIP for the year. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:27 pm
  • Snell charged with three runs in loss to O's
    Blake Snell was charged with three earned runs over seven-plus innings Monday in a loss to the Orioles.

    Advice: Snell actually looked pretty sharp until the top of the eighth inning, when the Orioles' bats came alive for three runs on four singles and a sacrifice fly. Tampa Bay's offense provided zero runs of support as the 24-year-old left-hander dropped to 0-6 on the season. A road start against the Yankees is next. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:16 pm
  • Adleman allows five earned in loss to Tribe
    Tim Adleman surrendered five earned runs over six-plus innings Monday in a loss to the Indians.

    Advice: Adleman made it to the bottom of the seventh in this one, but he was lifted with zero outs in that frame after yielding a leadoff homer to Carlos Santana and a walk to Giovanny Urshela. On the night, the right-hander issued three free passes and allowed six hits while striking out four. He'll bring a 5-8 record and 5.11 ERA into his next start on the road versus the Marlins.

  • Jaime Garcia to make Twins debut Friday
    Jaime Garcia will make his Twins debut on Friday in Oakland.

    Advice: Garcia was acquired via trade from the Braves on Monday. The Twins have not announced yet whose spot in the rotation he'll take, but Bartolo Colon would certainly appear to be vulnerable. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:32 pm
  • Hisashi Iwakuma moved to 60-day DL
    Mariners transferred RHP Hisashi Iwakuma from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Danny Espinosa. Iwakuma has resumed a throwing program but there's no timetable for his return from shoulder issues. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:15 pm

  • Clayton Kershaw (back) officially lands on DL
    Dodgers placed LHP Clayton Kershaw on the 10-day disabled list with a lower back strain.

    Advice: Kershaw suffered the injury during Sunday's start against the Braves. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported earlier Monday that the initial prognosis has Kershaw missing 4-6 weeks, but more will be known after he's examined by Dr. Robert Watkins. Manager Dave Roberts said Monday that it's "not a disc issue" with Kershaw this time like he had last season, which cost him a couple months. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:11 pm

  • Hyun-Jin Ryu activated for Monday start
    Dodgers activated LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: Ryu will start Monday against the Twins. He's missed most of this month with a bruised foot, although it's debatable how hurt he's actually been. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:55 pm
  • For real this time: Twins get Jaime Garcia
    Twins acquired LHP Jaime Garcia, C Anthony Recker and cash considerations from the Braves in exchange for RHP Huascar Ynoa.

    Advice: The two sides tentatively agreed to a trade last week, but it was nixed due to physical concerns with Nick Burdi (elbow), who had been slated to go to Atlanta in the deal. Garcia has been up-and-down this season, posting a 4.30 ERA and 85/41 K/BB ratio over 113 innings, but he should offer Minnesota more reliable work at the back of their rotation. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:22 pm
  • Braves getting 'more involved' for Sonny Gray
    Joel Sherman of New York Post reports that the Braves "have gotten more involved" in trade talks for Sonny Gray.

    Advice: The Braves aren't really viewed as a legit playoff contender this season, but they've been connected to Gray dating back to the offseason as they seek to obtain a cost-controlled starter. They certainly have the pieces in their farm system to get something done. Sherman notes that the Yankees and Brewers are viewed as the "strongest pursuers" over Gray at this point, with the Astros "still trying, too." The Mariners, Twins and Indians have also been connected to Gray. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:15 pm
  • 'Little indication' Texas will trade Darvish
    Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that there's been "little indication" to this point that the Rangers will trade Yu Darvish.

    Advice: The Rangers reported have put out feelers to see what Darvish could potentially bring back in return, but they've won three straight and sit just 2.5 games out of a Wild Card spot. They are also interested in re-signing Darvish to a long-term contract and figure they'd have a better chance to do it if they hang on to him. Unless the Rangers collapse over the next week, it seems likely that they'll hang on to their ace. Sherman notes that Darvish is "pretty much" the Dodgers' "only interest" among starters, so they could stand pat in that regard if the Texas righty isn't made available. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:38 pm
  • Mariners could 'make a run' for Sonny Gray
    MLB.com's Mark Feinsand reports that the Mariners "might be preparing to make a run" for Sonny Gray.

    Advice: Feinsand's source told him that general manager Jerry Dipoto "is going for it these next two years" and "if he is going for it, he might as well go completely in." Seattle doesn't have a terribly strong farm system, but it sounds like Dipoto could be willing to empty the cupboard in order to acquire a quality starter who is under team control through 2019. He'll have plenty of competition for Gray, of course, as most every contender looking for pitching help has been connected to him. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:16 pm
  • Giants' Beede dealing with groin strain
    Giants prospect right-hander Tyler Beede was scratched from his scheduled start with Triple-A Sacramento on Monday due to a groin strain.

    Advice: Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle notes that Beede suffered the injury while warming up. There should be more clarity on his status soon. The 24-year-old has compiled a 4.79 ERA and 83/39 K/BB ratio in 109 innings over 19 starts this year. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:33 pm

  • Report: Kershaw (back) likely to miss 4-6 wks
    According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the initial prognosis suggests that Clayton Kershaw (back) will miss 4-6 weeks.

    Advice: We'll have a better idea about the official timetable after Kershaw sees Dr. Robert Watkins, but this would place his return somewhere around the start of September. On the bright side, it doesn't appear to be as serious as the back injury he dealt with last year. The Dodgers are cruising in the NL West and should be fine, but it's a tough blow for fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:21 am

  • Honeywell strikes out 11
    Rays prospect Brent Honeywell gave up two runs over five innings for Triple-A Durham on Sunday.

    Advice: Honeywell allowed only four hits over those five innings, and he struck out 11 while walking just one. It was a sensational start for the Rays' top pitching prospect, and he looks like he's ready to contribute to a big-league staff. The Rays are certainly in contention, and an arm like Honeywell could help put them into one of the two wild card spots. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:08 am

  • Clayton Kershaw heading to disabled list
    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said after Sunday's game that Clayton Kershaw would be placed on the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: Roberts was quick to point out that he didn't feel this injury was similar to the herniated disc issue that cost Kershaw two months during the 2016 season. It does look like it'll sideline him for a couple of weeks however. No timetable will be placed on his potential return until he meets with team doctors on Monday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:46 pm

  • Kershaw exis game with lower back tightness
    Clayton Kershaw was removed from Sunday's start against the Braves after two innings due to tightness in his lower back.

    Advice: Kershaw has a history of back issues, so this is troubling news. The severity of the injury, and ultimately how much time he may miss, both remain unclear at the moment. Prior to departing Kershaw allowed just one walk while striking out two over his two scoreless innings of work. He owns a sparkling 2.04 ERA and 0.88 WHIP this season.

  • Kershaw removed from start after two innings
    Clayton Kershaw was removed from Sunday's start against the Braves after two innings due to an apparent injury.

    Advice: No word yet on exactly what's going on. With two outs in the second inning, the team trainer and manager Dave Roberts came out to check on the star southpaw, and after throwing a couple of warm-up pitches he remained in the game. He was pinch-hit for in the bottom half of the inning though and was seen going into the clubhouse with the trainer. We'll pass along any updates as soon as they become available.

  • Dodgers showing 'strong interest' in Darvish
    Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Dodgers are showing "strong interest" in Yu Darvish.

    Advice: He cautions, however, that multiple other clubs are displaying strong interest, as well, and trade talks remain in the "early stages." The Cubs are one of the other teams known to have interest in the impending free agent. The Rangers haven't decided yet whether they'll be buyers or sellers at the deadline, but if they choose the latter Darvish will obviously be a major trade chip. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:39 pm
  • Brewers considering lefty Jaime Garcia
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that Jaime Garcia is "among the names" on the Brewers' radar.

    Advice: Crasnick notes that the Brewers "are considering both long-term and rental starters at trade deadline." Garcia had appeared headed to the Twins last week in a trade, but it fell apart. It's possible he could still wind up in Minnesota, but there are multiple clubs interested in him now. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:48 am
  • Twins deal for Garcia stalled due to medicals
    Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the potential deal between the Braves and Twins for Jaime Garcia stalled out due to the Braves' medical concern over one of the Twins' prospects that would have headed back in the trade.

    Advice: Rosenthal notes that while both sides are now working alternative trade possibilities, the two sides could still revive the deal and get something done. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:28 am
  • Jaime Garcia hits grand slam in victory
    Jaime Garcia allowed three runs over seven innings and hit a grand slam off Alex Wood to lead the Braves to a 12-3 rout of the Dodgers on Friday.

    Advice: One of the more surprising results of the season, in no small part because a Garcia trade to Minnesota seemed all but finalized 24 hours earlier. Garcia helped his stock some with a fine outing against the NL's hottest and probably best team. He's won two straight to get to 4-7 with a 4.30 ERA for the year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:55 pm
  • Dodgers and Cubs scout Yu Darvish on Friday
    Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Dodgers and Cubs were among the teams scouting Yu Darvish's start against the Rays on Friday.

    Advice: They had to come away impressed with what they saw after Darvish whiffed 12 over eight innings of three-run baseball. He's one of the top arms rumored to be available prior to the trade deadline, so expect the action surrounding him to heat up in the coming days. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:30 pm
  • Yu Darvish strikes out 12 against Rays
    Yu Darvish struck out 12 batters while allowing three runs over eight innings in a no-decision against the Rays on Friday.

    Advice: Darvish gave up five hits on the night, three of which were solo homers. Shin-Soo Choo took him off the hook for the loss with a game-tying homer in the ninth inning, but he remains winless dating back to June 12. This was Darvish’s 32nd career double-digit strikeout game, good enough for second in team history. Nolan Ryan ranks first with 34 of them. With Darvish’s name circulating in trade rumors, he might not get many more chances to climb that list. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:03 pm
  • Jaime Garcia expected to start for ATL Friday
    Jaime Garcia is expected to make his scheduled start with the Braves on Friday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Jon Morosi of MLB Network reported Thursday that the Braves had agreed to trade Garcia to the Twins, but at the very least the deal appears to be on life support, if not dead. ESPN's Jerry Crasnick says that the Braves are "still talking to a number of clubs" about the left-hander. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:36 pm
  • Twins' trade for SP Garcia could fall through
    Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Twins' trade for Jaime Garcia could fall through.

    Advice: Jon Morosi of MLB Network reported Thursday that the two sides had reached an agreement on a trade, but there appears to be a snag. Garcia has a long history of injury issues, especially involving his pitching shoulder, so it's possible a physical issue might be the concern. Garcia is currently still penciled in to start for the Braves on Friday against the Dodgers, but Aaron Blair is in Los Angeles and will fill in if the deal goes through. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:31 am
  • Cubs have inquired on Rangers' Yu Darvish
    Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Cubs have inquired with the Rangers on the availability of Yu Darvish.

    Advice: Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports previously reported that the Rangers were trying to gauge interest in Darvish, and it appears the Cubs are one of the first teams to have checked in. It could just be due diligence, although the Cubs have been connected to other starters, as well, even after acquiring Jose Quintana, so it appears they're interested in further upgrading their rotation. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:56 am
  • Rangers gauging interest in SP Yu Darvish
    Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Rangers "have started reaching out to teams potentially interested in acquiring" Yu Darvish.

    Advice: The Rangers aren't committed to selling yet, but they're 4.5 games out of the second American League Wild Card spot and are behind five other teams chasing the Rays and Yankees. If they do wind up selling, Darvish would immediately become the best available rental pitcher on the market. Passan lists the Astros, Brewers, Yankees, Indians, Rockies and Dodgers as teams that he could see as having interest in the impending free agent, although it's unclear at this point which, if any, of those clubs have talked to the Rangers about Darvish at this point. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:52 am
  • Twins continue to monitor Sonny Gray
    According to LaVelle E. Neal of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Twins "continue to monitor the market" for Sonny Gray.

    Advice: Add another team to Gray's growing list of suitors. The Twins are finalizing a trade for Braves lefty Jaime Garcia but apparently that won't stop them from pursuing Gray. Minnesota is clearly all-in but with so many other teams in the running, acquiring Gray is probably a long shot. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:09 pm
  • Twins and Braves finalizing Jaime Garcia deal
    According to Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Twins and Braves are not expected to complete their Jaime Garcia trade on Thursday night but the deal is "very close to final."

    Advice: The trade is expected to be a one-for-one swap with the Braves acquiring a minor league prospect from the Twins. Per Berardino, the Braves are paying only a small portion of Garcia's remaining $4.79 million salary with Minnesota covering the rest. The two sides are sifting through medical records as we speak. That process could take a while given Garcia's lengthy injury history. Assuming all the medical reports check out, Garcia could be in line to make his Twins debut this weekend against the Tigers. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:04 pm
  • Astros losing interest in Sonny Gray?
    According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Astros are not in "serious talks" for Sonny Gray.

    Advice: Per Heyman, Houston is "looking elsewhere" right now. That conflicts with a report by MLB Network's Jon Morosi, who said earlier today that talks were "heating up" between the A's and Astros. It's possible the Astros balked at Oakland's asking price for Gray but with the trade deadline over a week away, there's still time for the sides to strike a deal. Jeff Samardzija could be a fallback option for the Astros if they lose out on Gray, who is also being pursued by the Yankees and Indians. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:40 pm
  • Not done yet: Yankees pursuing Sonny Gray
    According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Athletics "have named their price" for Sonny Gray in trade talks with the Yankees.

    Advice: Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports added that the A's have a scout observing the Yankees' Double-A affiliate in Trenton tonight. The Yankees made a huge trade earlier this week when they acquired Todd Frazier, David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle from the White Sox and from the looks of it, they're not done adding pieces. Gray has drawn widespread trade interest with the Astros and Indians among his top suitors. The Yankees could certainly use another arm after losing Michael Pineda to Tommy John surgery earlier this month. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:22 pm
  • Report: Twins close to landing Jaime Garcia
    According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the Twins are "close" to acquiring Jaime Garcia from the Braves.

    Advice: Garcia had been scheduled to start Friday night's game against the Dodgers but the Braves just scratched Aaron Blair from his scheduled outing Thursday for Triple-A Gwinnett, a sure sign that he's headed to the big leagues to replace Garcia. The left-hander would only be a rental as his contract is up at the end of the year but he'd be a great addition to Minnesota's starting rotation, which is relatively thin beyond All-Star Ervin Santana and rising star Jose Berrios. The Royals and Yankees were also said to be interested in Garcia, who sports a 4.33 ERA over 17 starts this season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:04 pm
  • Astros' pursuit of Sonny Gray is 'heating up'
    Jon Morosi of MLB Networks reports that talks are "heating up" between the Astros and Athletics on a Sonny Gray trade.

    Advice: Morosi notes, however, that the Astros are also talking to the Tigers about a possible package for both Justin Verlander and Justin Wilson. Gray, 27, has rebounded this season with a strong 3.66 ERA, 1.176 WHIP, and 85/28 K/BB ratio in 91 innings, after finishing with a 5.69 ERA over 117 innings in 2016. He is under contractual control through 2019. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:28 am
  • Adleman allows three runs in six innings Wed.
    Tim Adleman struck out seven batters while allowing three runs in six innings against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He surrendered seven base hits without issuing a walk in the quality start. The 29-year-old second-year player has been a serviceable innings-eater for the Reds' devastated starting rotation this year. He has a 5-7 record with a 4.96 ERA and 1.37 WHIP in 17 starts and one relief appearance. He lines up for starts against the Indians and Marlins next week. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:15 pm
  • Alex Meyer shuts down Nationals in win
    Alex Meyer allowed just one hit in seven innings versus the team that drafted him as the Angels beat the Nationals 7-0 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Meyer was the Nationals’ first-round pick in 2011 before being traded to the Twins for Denard Span a year and a half later. He went on to reach the majors with Minnesota, but the Angels picked him up along with Ricky Nolasco in a four-player deal at last year’s trade deadline. This makes three of his last five outings in which Meyer has allowed no runs. Unfortunately, he’s given up five runs in the other two in that span. Consistency isn’t likely to come soon, but the Angels have to be pleased with his progress overall; he’s a very respectable 4-5 with a 3.74 ERA. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:13 pm
    10-Day DL
     
  • Jason Hammel pitches into seventh
    Jason Hammel yielded one run in 6 1/3 innings versus the Tigers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Hammel wasn't involved in the decision in this one, but the Royals won one of his starts for the first time since June 19. He's been pitching well for the most part; he's lowered his ERA from 6.18 at the end of May to 4.81 now by allowing three runs or fewer in eight of nine outings. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:07 pm
  • Gausman yields one run in six frames for win
    Kevin Gausman took home a win against the Rangers on Wednesday by allowing just one run in six innings.

    Advice: His only mistake was a solo home run by Joey Gallo in the fifth inning. Gausman has been wildly inconsistent this season with more bad games than good ones. Today's game definitely fell in the latter category. He struck out eight batters, walked two and surrendered four base hits. His record improves to 6-7 with an ugly 6.11 ERA and a frightful 1.75 WHIP. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:43 pm
  • Sonny Gray handcuffs Rays into seventh
    Sonny Gray surrendered two runs on seven hits over 6 1/3 innings in Wednesday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: In what may well have been Gray's last start with the A's, he turned in a sturdy, respectable performance. The 27-year-old right-hander struck out six and walked two in the game. Both runs on his line scored in the fourth inning. Gray, who has a ton of trade smoke around him (the Astros and Royals are reportedly in on him) has pitched to a 3.66 ERA and 1.18 WHIP over the course of 15 starts this season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:38 pm
  • Hyun-Jin Ryu (foot) set to start on Monday
    Hyun-Jin Ryu (foot) is expected to start against the Twins on Monday.

    Advice: Ryu was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a bruised left foot on July 4. He tossed a simulated game this week which went off without a hitch and so long as he experiences no setbacks over the coming day, should be good-to-go on Monday. He owns a 4.21 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 14 appearances (13 starts) this season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:41 pm
  • Angels bring up Alex Meyer for start
    Angels recalled RHP Alex Meyer from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Meyer will draw the start against the Nationals on Wednesday now that he has been called up. He had been pitching to a 4.18 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 68/41 K/BB ratio across 60 1/3 frames prior to a scheduling demotion on July 4. Opposing Meyer on the mound for the Nationals will be Gio Gonzalez. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:33 pm
    10-Day DL
     
  • Jaime Garcia has interest from six teams
    According to Chris Cotillo of SB Nation, there are "about six teams with strong interest" in Braves starter Jaime Garcia.

    Advice: Garcia was excellent on Sunday, working seven innings of one-run ball against a good Diamondbacks offense, though he owns a mediocre 4.33 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 81/40 K/BB ratio in 106 total innings (17 starts) this season for the Braves. The 31-year-old left-hander is owed around $4 million and scheduled to hit free agency this winter. He could be a back-end rotation rental for a contender. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:26 am
  • Blake Snell doesn't last long in road start
    Blake Snell allowed three earned runs, three hits and three walks over four innings while striking out six batters in a no-decision Tuesday in Oakland.

    Advice: Snell really labored, needing 85 pitches to record just 12 outs. He was outpitched by Chris Smith, but the Rays bullpen held down the fort and kept the team in the game before the offense broke through in the ninth for a comeback victory. Snell's next scheduled start is tentatively set for July 24 against the Orioles at Tropicana Field. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:38 am
  • Conley holds Phillies to two runs in return
    Adam Conley limited the Phillies to two runs over six innings in a no-decision Tuesday.

    Advice: Conley yielded eight hits and two walks but did well to limit the overall damage, ultimately not factoring in the decision. It was a much-needed turn for the 27-year-old after his first go-round with the big club this season ended with his demotion to Triple-A a month later. Conley figures to have bought himself more time with Tuesday's turn, and he'll carry an unsightly 6.75 ERA and 1.59 WHIP into an interleague matchup with the Rangers on Monday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:07 pm
  • Antonio Senzatela earns his 10th victory
    Antonio Senzatela allowed four runs - three earned - and four hits with three walks and two strikeouts over five innings in a victory against the Padres on Tuesday.

    Advice: Senzatela was able to secure his 10th victory of the season despite throwing just 52 of his 83 pitches for strikes in his return to the rotation. It was his first start since June 22, as the Rockies used him out of the bullpen to lighten his workload, and then sent him down to Triple-A Albuquerque briefly to stretch him back out. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:21 pm
  • Ho-hum: Kershaw goes seven shutout in win
    Clayton Kershaw blanked the White Sox for seven innings and struck out seven in a 1-0 win Tuesday.

    Advice: The Dodgers will eventually lose again, but maybe not ever with Kershaw on the mound. They've won each of his last 14 starts dating back to May 6. Kershaw is now 15-2 with a 2.07 ERA, and the Dodgers are 18-2 in his 20 starts this season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:55 pm

  • Alex Meyer to start Wednesday vs. Nats
    Alex Meyer will be called up to start for the Angels on Wednesday against the Nationals.

    Advice: Meyer was optioned to the minors on July 4 after registering a 4.18 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, and 68/41 K/BB ratio in 60 1/3 innings. The 27-year-old right-hander is not a recommended fantasy streamer versus the first place team in the National League East. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:23 pm
    10-Day DL
     
  • Ryu (foot) due back Monday or Tuesday
    Hyun-Jin Ryu (foot) is expected to rejoin the Dodgers' rotation next Monday or Tuesday.

    Advice: That will give the Dodgers a six-man rotation, but they've been comfortable operating with a non-traditional rotation setup all year. Ryu, who's been out since July 4 with a foot injury, holds a 4.21 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 13 starts and one relief appearance this season with Los Angeles. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:46 pm
  • Rockies recall Senzatela from Albuquerque
    Rockies recalled RHP Antonio Senzatela from Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: Senzatela will return to the Rockies' starting rotation on Tuesday night against the Padres. He has a 4.63 ERA in 93 1/3 innings this season at the MLB level. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:09 pm
  • Adam Conley recalled from Triple-A
    Marlins recalled LHP Adam Conley from Triple-A New Orleans.

    Advice: Conley will start Tuesday versus the Phillies after spending over two months in the minors. Things were rocky at New Orleans for Conley, as he held a 5.49 ERA and 41/25 K/BB ratio over 62 1/3 innings. He can't be trusted in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:20 am
  • Report: Astros the 'favorites' for Sonny Gray
    USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Astros are "still the favorites" for Sonny Gray.

    Advice: Nightengale notes, however, that the Brewers "may be the most aggressive team" in trade talks involving Gray and the Royals have been "very aggressive," as well. Gray is a shoo-in to be dealt before the end of the month, whether it's to one of the aforementioned three clubs or somewhere else. He's under team control through 2019. Rotoworld.com Jul 17, 1:07 pm
  • Darvish surrenders three runs in loss to KC
    Yu Darvish allowed three runs (two earned) on eight hits over 6 2/3 innings while taking a no-decision in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Darvish struck out six and walked one on the afternoon. The game was tied at 2-2 entering the bottom of the seventh inning, when Whit Merrifield burned the ace for an RBI double. Through 20 starts covering 125 1/3 innings, Darvish owns a 3.45 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 131/42 K/BB ratio. Up next on his schedule, a road start against the Rays. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 2:29 pm
  • Hisashi Iwakuma (shoulder) resumes throwing
    Hisashi Iwakuma (shoulder) has resumed playing catch.

    Advice: It's just flat-ground tossing from 70 feet for now, but it's progress after Iwakuma was shut down for a couple weeks following renewed right shoulder soreness. A potential return date remains very much up in the air. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 9:39 am
    60-Day DL
    Top 9, 4-0 vs Bos
     
  • Showalter says demoting Gausman a possibility
    Orioles manager Buck Showalter said demoting Kevin Gausman to the minor leagues is "always a possibility."

    Advice: Gausman was arguably the Orioles' best starter last year but has struggled to a miserable 6.39 ERA in 2017 and is coming off a dreadful start Friday against the Cubs (3 IP, 7 H, 8 ER). The right-hander clearly isn't fooling anyone as opponents have hit .323 against him this season. Surely the O's would prefer to keep Gausman in the rotation but another bad outing could force their hand. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 3:37 pm
  • Sonny Gray drawing interest from Cleveland
    According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the Indians are among teams interested in Sonny Gray.

    Advice: Gray has also been linked to the Cubs and Yankees. Scouts have followed Gray everywhere he's gone over the last month and it seems inevitable that he'll be dealt ahead of the July 31 deadline. Coming off a down season in 2016, Gray has boosted his trade value by going 3-1 with a 1.33 ERA over his last four starts. The 27-year-old is earning a modest $3.575 million this season and still has two years left of arbitration before he hits free agency in 2020. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 1:48 pm
  • Jason Hammel gives up three runs to Rangers
    Jason Hammel yielded three runs in 5 2/3 innings Friday in a no-decision versus the Rangers.

    Advice: Hammel has followed up his strong June by giving up 12 earned runs over 17 innings so far this month. Not only is he 4-8 this season, but the Royals are actually 4-14 in his starts. They're 40-30 the rest of the time. Rotoworld.com Jul 14, 8:59 pm
  • Kevin Gausman clobbered by Cubs on Friday
    Kevin Gausman was clobbered in a no-decision against the Cubs on Friday, giving up eight runs on seven hits in just three innings.

    Advice: Gausman fanned five and walked one on the night. His trouble in this one came from his inability to keep the ball in the yard, with Willson Contreras, Kyle Schwarber, Ben Zobrist and Jason Heyward each taking him deep. The right-hander will carry a horrifying 6.39 ERA and 1.79 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Rangers. Rotoworld.com Jul 14, 8:39 pm
  • Adleman gives up five runs in loss
    Tim Adleman took the loss after allowing five runs in 4 1/3 innings Friday against the Nationals.

    Advice: Adelman gave up seven hits, including a pair of home runs to Bryce Harper. He’s now allowed 21 home runs in just 88 1/3 innings this season, which just isn’t going to play in most fantasy leagues. He’ll bring a 4.99 ERA into a tough matchup against the Diamondbacks next week. Rotoworld.com Jul 14, 8:06 pm
  • Hyun-Jin Ryu's (foot) role not yet determined
    Hyun-Jin Ryu (foot) will not pitch for the Dodgers on their road trip and whether he returns as a starter or reliever hasn't been determined.

    Advice: Ryu resumed throwing off a mound Friday and should be physically ready to pitch in a game pretty soon, but clearly his role is up in the air. It's frustrating for his fantasy owners, but this has been the modus operandi of the Dodgers this season. Rotoworld.com Jul 14, 2:29 pm
  • Hyun-Jin Ryu (foot) throws bullpen session
    Hyun-Jin Ryu (foot) threw a bullpen session Friday.

    Advice: Ryu is nearly two weeks removed from suffering a bruised left foot that was the result of being hit with a comebacker. He should be physically ready to rejoin the Dodgers' rotation later this month, but it's anyone's guess as to whether that will happen given how they've juggled their starters around this season.
