  • Mariners option Sam Gaviglio to Triple-A
    Mariners optioned RHP Sam Gaviglio to Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: The right-hander contineues to shuttle back and forth between the M's and Triple-A Tacoma every time they need a fresh arm in the bullpen. He should be back up for good once rosters expand in September. Today, 11:28 am

  • Grant Dayton dealing with discomfort in elbow
    Grant Dayton will head back to Los Angeles to undergo further evaluation after experiencing discomfort in his elbow while warming up on Friday.

    Advice: Dayton was working his way back from a neck injury when the elbow issue cropped up. The Dodgers had hoped to get him back from the disabled list in early September, but that's on hold now until they can figure out what's going on with the elbow issue. Today, 11:21 am
    10-Day DL
  • Aaron Sanchez (finger) throws off flat ground
    Aaron Sanchez (finger) threw off of flat ground without issue on Saturday.

    Advice: The club remains hopeful that they'll get the right-hander back in some capacity at some point in September. It's looking like it's a lost season for him from a fantasy perspective however. Today, 11:10 am
    10-Day DL
  • Curtis Granderson bats fifth in Dodgers debut
    Curtis Granderson is starting in left field and batting fifth in his Dodgers' debut against the Tigers on Saturday.

    Advice: Granderson was acquired from the Mets late on Friday and is already in Motown with his new club. He adds another potent left-handed bat to an already deep and supremely talented Dodgers' lineup. Today, 9:53 am
  • Kendrys Morales remains out of Jays lineup
    Kendrys Morales is once again out of the Blue Jays' starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: With the Jays playing an interleague series in Chicago, they're without the benefit of a designated hitter, which is keeping Morales on the sidelines. He'll be available as a pinch hitter on Saturday. Today, 9:14 am
  • Cubs designate Aaron Brooks for assignment
    Cubs designated RHP Aaron Brooks for assignment.

    Advice: The move was made to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Rene Rivera. Brooks has struggled at Triple-A Iowa this season, posting a 6.20 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 105/28 K/BB ratio in 138 innings. Today, 8:40 am

  • Cubs claim Rene Rivera off waivers from Mets
    Cubs claimed C Rene Rivera off of waivers from the Mets.

    Advice: Rivera will provide additional depth behind the plate for the Cubs while Willson Contreras is sidelined. The 33-year-old backstop was hitting .230/.278/.391 with eight homers and 23 RBI in 174 at-bats with the Mets. Today, 8:38 am
  • Phillies outright Pedro Beato to Triple-A
    Phillies sent RHP Pedro Beato outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Beato was designated for assignment earlier in the week to create a spot on the 40-man roster for Pedro Florimon. He'll continue to serve as organizational bullpen depth for the Phillies. Today, 6:40 am

  • Matt Moore goes 7 1/3 innings for win
    Matt Moore pitched 7 1/3 innings of two-run ball Friday in a win over the Phillies.

    Advice: Since talk of a move to the bullpen started up, Moore has responded with back-to-back quality starts. The only other time that's happened all season was in May, when he had four in a row. The win tonight was Moore's first since June 20. At 5.54, his ERA is as low as it's been since mid-June. Yesterday, 10:32 pm
  • Brandon Crawford homers, doubles
    Brandon Crawford homered, doubled and walked Friday against the Phillies.

    Advice: The homer was just his second in 118 at-bats since the All-Star break. Crawford has spent nearly two months now with his average in the .220s and .230s, and his defensive numbers haven't been as good as usual, either. He was one of the NL's top 15 or so players in both 2015 and 2016, but this year, he's been well below average. Yesterday, 10:22 pm
  • Eric Thames triples, doubles
    Eric Thames tripled and doubled as the Brewers' leadoff man Friday.

    Advice: Thames is 10-for-23 with a couple of homers in his last six games. He's not any sort of conventional leadoff man for the Brewers, but given his .362 OBP and his big struggles with men on base, it makes sense to hit him there now. Yesterday, 9:33 pm
  • Romano fires seven innings of one-run ball
    Sal Romano held the Braves to one run in seven innings while leading his club to a 5-3 win on Friday.

    Advice: The only damage he allowed was a Matt Adams solo shot in the second inning. The big rookie struck out three batters, walked two and surrendered five base hits in the premium start. It was the best game of his young career. He improves to 3-5 with a 5.42 ERA in nine starts. He draws a tough matchup against the Cubs and Jake Arrieta on Thursday. Yesterday, 9:33 pm
  • Dodgers acquire OF Granderson from Mets
    Dodgers acquired OF Curtis Granderson and cash considerations from the Mets for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

    Advice: The trade would seem to be bad news for Joc Pederson, who has really struggled during the second half. Granderson, an impending free agent, has quietly been one of the NL's best hitters since getting off to a slow start in April. He should provide a boost against right-handed pitching for the World Series hopeful Dodgers. Granderson will finish his Mets tenure with a .784 OPS (115 OPS+) and 95 homers over 573 games. Yesterday, 9:23 pm
  • J.D. Martinez scratched due to illness
    J.D. Martinez was scratched from the Diamondbacks' starting lineup on Friday due to illness.

    Advice: It doesn't sound like anything too serious, so consider the hard-hitting outfielder day-to-day. Brandon Drury replaced him in the lineup and will bat seventh for the D'Backs against Ervin Santana and the Twins. Yesterday, 4:46 pm
  • Kendrys Morales sitting out on Friday
    Kendrys Morales is not in the Blue Jays' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He might be limited to pinch-hitting duties this weekend with the Jays at Wrigley field for an interleague series. Given that Morales is in a 3-for-30 funk at the plate, a little break might be good for him. Yesterday, 8:55 am
  • Fowler, Cardinals come back to top Pirates
    Dexter Fowler finished 2-for-3 with a triple, three RBI and three runs scored to help the Cardinals come back to beat the Pirates 11-7 on Thursday.

    Advice: With the Cards trailing by a run in the seventh inning, Fowler ripped a pitch down the right field line that plated two and allowed the speedy outfielder to race around for his sixth triple of the year. He also walked twice in the game, reaching base in four of five plate appearances. It's nothing new for Fowler since his return from the disabled list -- in 10 games, he's now 14-for-31 with five doubles, two triples, a home run, 11 RBI and 11 runs scored. The hot stretch has his overall line up to a passable .262/.363/.489. Thursday, 11:06 pm

  • Granderson delivers grand slam against Yanks
    Curtis Granderson hit a grand slam in a loss to the Yankees on Thursday.

    Advice: Mets fans had little to cheer about on this night, and most nights, but Granderson gave the remaining fans a treat when he cleared the wall in the ninth inning to cut the Yankees' lead to two. That would remain the difference, making the dong little more than a footnote of an otherwise forgettable game for the Queens club. Granderson also walked twice in the contest. The 36-year-old is hitting .228/.334/.481 with 19 homers, 52 RBI and 58 runs scored this season. Thursday, 9:37 pm
  • Phillies designate Pedro Beato for assignment
    Phillies designated RHP Pedro Beato for assignment.

    Advice: That clears a spot for Pedro Florimon on the 40-man roster. Beato had been on the disabled list with a strained hamstring since late July. He's likely to stay with the organization as minor league depth once he clears waivers. Thursday, 4:36 pm

  • Grant Dayton (neck) to return on Sept. 1?
    Grant Dayton (neck) said he's expecting to be activated from the disabled list on September 1.

    Advice: Dayton will spend one week pitching in rehab games with Double-A Tulsa and the next week appearing in rehab games at Triple-A Oklahoma City. He'll then be ready to rock when rosters expand. The lefty reliever has struggled with his command in 2017 and the Dodgers have fared just fine without him, so a slow process seems like the wise process here. Thursday, 5:24 am
    10-Day DL
  • Martinez goes 2-for-4 with a solo homer Wed.
    J.D. Martinez went 2-for-4 and whacked a solo home run against his former team the Astros on Saturday.

    Advice: He came up through the Astros farm system and played his first three seasons in Houston before becoming a star with the Tigers. He came to Arizona in a mid-July trade. He is batting .285/.374/.620 with 24 home runs and 59 RBI in 81 games. Wednesday, 9:03 pm
  • Dayton to begin rehab assignment this weekend
    Grant Dayton (neck) will begin a minor league rehab assignment this weekend.

    Advice: The Dodgers haven't announced where he'll begin his rehab, though the plan is for him to make at least five appearances. Dayton landed on the DL with neck stiffness late last month. Wednesday, 5:25 pm
    10-Day DL
  • Thames not in Brewers' lineup on Wednesday
    Eric Thames is not in the Brewers' starting lineup on Wednesday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Jesus Aguilar will play first base and hit fifth versus right-hander Gerrit Cole. Thames went 0-for-4 on Tuesday night and is batting just .196 so far in August. Wednesday, 8:03 am
  • Dexter Fowler picks up three more hits
    Dexter Fowler went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored Tuesday in Boston.

    Advice: Fowler doubled in a pair of runs in the sixth inning to get the Cardinals on the scoreboard, although it made it a 9-2 deficit at that point. The center fielder has been red-hot since returning from the disabled list, hitting .458 (11-for-24) with eight RBI over eight contests. Tuesday, 7:09 pm
    Top 2, Delay @Pit
  • Grant Dayton (neck) nearing rehab games
    Grant Dayton (neck) is nearing a minor league rehab assignment.

    Advice: Dayton has been on the disabled list since July 28 with a neck injury. The left-handed reliever holds a 4.94 ERA and 20/12 K/BB ratio in 23 2/3 innings this season at the major league level. Tuesday, 4:33 pm
    10-Day DL
  • Mariners recall Sam Gaviglio from Tacoma
    Mariners recalled Sam Gaviglio from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Gaviglio will be available out of the Mariners' bullpen on Tuesday night against the Orioles. The 27-year-old right-hander holds a 4.62 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over 62 1/3 innings this season in the majors. Tuesday, 2:44 pm

  • Granderson slugs 18th home run on Monday
    Curtis Granderson hit his 18th home run of the season Monday night against the Yankees.

    Advice: Granderson belted a solo shot off Yankees starter Luis Cessa in the top of the third inning, and Yoenis Cespedes repeated the act moments later. Granderson has been steadily productive since early May and Mike Puma of the New York Post reported Monday evening that waiver-trade interest in the 36-year-old outfielder "has picked up lately." We may see a move. Monday, 7:50 pm
  • Interest in Curtis Granderson 'has picked up'
    Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that interest in Curtis Granderson "has picked up lately."

    Advice: Marc Carig of Newsday reported Sunday that Granderson was drawing "little interest" on the trade market, but Puma is hearing that the tide is turning. It certainly make sense given that the veteran outfielder is batting .267/.386/.563 with 16 homers since May 1. He can help a contender, whether it's as a full- or part-timer. Monday, 1:51 pm
  • Granderson to DH Monday vs. Yankees
    Curtis Granderson will serve as the designated hitter Monday against the Yankees.

    Advice: Playing under American League rules will allow Juan Lagares to make a start in center field. Michael Conforto will slide over to right field. Monday, 12:42 pm
  • Report: Granderson drawing little interest
    Marc Carig of Newsday writes that Curtis Granderson "continues to generate little interest" on the trade market.

    Advice: It doesn't make much sense, as Granderson has quietly been one of the league's best hitters after getting off to a slow start. He owns a 147 wRC+ dating back to May 1, which ranks higher than the likes of Andrew McCutchen, Kris Bryant, Bryce Harper, and Freddie Freeman among many other impressive names. The 36-year-old has cleared revocable waivers, so he can be traded to any team. There's still a chance that a contender will come to their senses and get a deal done this month. Monday, 6:29 am
  • Giants have considered Moore in bullpen
    Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News writes that the Giants have considered moving Matt Moore to the bullpen.

    Advice: Moore struck out nine batters while allowing two runs over seven innings Sunday against the Nationals, but he still owns an ugly 5.71 ERA through 24 starts on the year. He made two relief appearances during his first taste of the majors in 2011, but he has pitched exclusively as a starter since. Regardless of whether he pitches out the bullpen down the stretch or not, the Giants could have an interesting decision to make about him this offseason. Moore's contract includes a $9 million club option for 2019 or a $1 million buyout. Monday, 6:17 am
  • Matt Moore pitches well in no-decision Sunday
    Matt Moore pitched well in a no-decision against the Nationals on Sunday night, racking up nine strikeouts over seven innings of two-run ball.

    Advice: Moore scattered seven hits on the night and didn't walk a batter. Both runs that he surrendered were via solo homers, with Daniel Murphy and Ryan Zimmerman each taking him deep. The left-hander has been remarkably inconsistent this season, but continues to show occasional flashes of brilliance. He'll carry a 5.71 ERA and 1.56 WHIP into Saturday's start against the Phillies. Sunday, 7:36 pm
  • Curtis Granderson homers, knocks in three
    Curtis Granderson went 3-for-5 with a homer, a double and three RBI in leading the Mets to a 6-2 win over the Phillies on Sunday.

    Advice: We maintain that Granderson was the better acquisition for a contender than Jay Bruce, but there's still time to see if that will play out; he's cleared waivers and the Mets still could move him for a prospect and salary relief. Granderson is hitting .284/.409/.597 in 201 at-bats since May 15. Sunday, 3:46 pm
  • Sal Romano hit hard in loss to Brewers
    Sal Romano was hit hard in a losing effort against the Brewers on Sunday, surrendering seven runs (six earned) on eight hits over his five innings of work.

    Advice: Romano walked one and struck out six on the afternoon. The Brewers pushed three runs across against him in the first inning, added a run in the fourth and broke it open with a three-run homer from Domingo Santana in the fifth. The rookie right-hander will carry a horrifying 6.05 ERA and 1.68 WHIP into Friday's start against the Braves in Atlanta. Sunday, 2:23 pm
  • Brandon Crawford not in Giants lineup Sunday
    Brandon Crawford is not in the Giants' starting lineup for the second game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

    Advice: Crawford went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in the first game on Sunday. Kelby Tomlinson is starting in his place at shortstop and batting eighth for the Giants against Max Scherzer and the Nationals. Sunday, 1:52 pm
  • Fowler out of Cardinals' lineup on Sunday
    Dexter Fowler is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup Sunday afternoon against the Braves.

    Advice: Tommy Pham will start in center field and hit second versus veteran knuckleballer R.A. Dickey. Jose Martinez is in left field and batting cleanup. Sunday, 8:47 am
    Top 2, Delay @Pit
  • Morales (illness) returns to Blue Jays lineup
    Kendrys Morales (illness) is back in the Blue Jays' starting lineup on Sunday.

    Advice: Morales will DH and bat cleanup versus Pirates right-hander Chad Kuhl after missing a handful of games with an illness. The veteran slugger has 21 home runs and 60 RBI in 107 games this season. Sunday, 7:32 am
  • Morales (illness) appears as pinch-hitter
    Kendrys Morales (illness) pinch-hit and drove in a run on a fielder's choice grounder Saturday night against the Pirates.

    Advice: Morales was held out of the starting lineup for the third straight game due to an illness, but he's clearly feeling a little better. The veteran slugger should be ready to play a full nine innings on Sunday. Sunday, 6:06 am
  • Thames homers in second straight Saturday
    Eric Thames went 2-for-5 with a home run and a stolen base in a win over the Reds on Saturday.

    Advice: Thames homered in his second straight game, blasting a solo shot in the sixth inning. The homer was his 27th of the year, 20 of which he hit before June 18. The stolen bases is what's most disappointing about Thames this year -- after he stole 64 bases over three seasons in the Korean Baseball Organization, he's got just three steals in five attempts this year. The 30-year-old is hitting .248/.363/.526 on the year. Saturday, 9:50 pm
  • Kendrys Morales remains out of Jays lineup
    Kendrys Morales (illness) remains out of the Blue Jays' starting line up on Saturday.

    Advice: This will be the third consecutive game that Morales has missed. He said Saturday that he's finally feeling better, but the club opted to give him an extra day of rest to be on the safe side. Saturday, 9:05 am
  • Kendrys Morales feeling better Saturday
    Kendrys Morales indicated Saturday that he is feeling much better.

    Advice: Morales was scratched from the Jays' lineup on Thursday and sat out Friday's game due to an illness that is going around the team's clubhouse. Look for him to return to the lineup on Saturday. Saturday, 7:09 am
  • Eric Thames slugs three-run homer vs. Reds
    Eric Thames went 3-for-6 with a three-run home run in Friday's loss to the Reds.

    Advice: In what was an entertaining offensive explosion by both teams, the Reds jumped out to a 10-2 lead only for the Brewers to come roaring back to make a game of it with a seven-run sixth inning. Key to that big frame was Thames, who whacked a three-run home run. Friday's strong showing snapped him out of a 4-for-29 (.138 average) slump. For the campaign as a whole, Thames is hitting .246/.361/.519 with 26 homers and 50 RBI over the course of 103 games played. Friday, 9:31 pm
  • Fowler's slam helps Cardinals sweep Royals
    Dexter Fowler hit a grand slam in the seventh inning that proved to be the difference in the Cardinals' 8-6 win over the Royals on Thursday.

    Advice: A day after a kitten scurried onto the field shortly before Yadier Molina cranked a grand slam to give the Cards a lead, Fowler required no such rally animal ahead of his salami against Royals reliever Neftali Feliz. The 31-year-old actually got the scoring started for the Cardinals an inning earlier with an RBI double, giving him five RBI when all was said and done. He's been on fire since coming off the disabled list Monday, going 6-for-13 with three doubles, a triple and a homer in four games. Fowler is batting .251/.349/.479 overall in his first season with the St. Louis club. Thursday, 10:49 pm
    Top 2, Delay @Pit
  • Granderson hits one of four Mets HRs in win
    Curtis Granderson went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in a win over the Phillies on Thursday.

    Advice: Granderson poured a little salt in the wound with his two-run bomb in the ninth inning of an eight-run game, but that's how it goes sometimes. The homer was the third in the last seven games for the 36-year-old, who now has 16 on the season. Through 105 games, Granderson is batting .225/.332/.459. Thursday, 8:56 pm
  • Kendrys Morales scratched with illness
    Kendrys Morales (illness) was scratched from the Blue Jays' lineup Thursday against the Yankees.

    Advice: Morales was originally slated to DH but came down with an illness shortly before first pitch. With Morales under the weather, Ezequiel Carrera will move into the lineup at right field with Jose Bautista getting the nod at DH. Consider Morales day-to-day. Thursday, 3:45 pm
  • Brewers bench slumping Thames Thursday
    Eric Thames is not in the Brewers' lineup Thursday against the Twins.

    Advice: Thames is two for his last 25 at the dish and has struggled against lefties this season, so he'll get the night off with Dietrich Enns throwing for Minnesota. Jesus Aguilar will get the nod at first base and bat fifth for the Brewers, who trail the first-place Cubs by 1.5 games in the NL Central. Thursday, 2:01 pm
  • Eric Thames goes 0-for-4 in loss
    Eric Thames went 0-for-4 on Wednesday after being held out of Tuesday's lineup.

    Advice: Thames had a nice .284/.361/.500 line in July, but he's in a 2-for-25 slump at the moment and the Brewers seem a little frustrated with him. He'll likely do more sitting against left-handers unless he can get on a real hot streak. Wednesday, 8:48 pm
