  • Jimenez's velocity down in last appearance
    Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said that he was "a little curious" why Joe Jimenez's velocity was down in his last appearance Wednesday.

    Advice: Jimenez was sitting at 93 mph against the Rangers, down from the mid- to high-90s that he usually throws. He was charged with three runs -- two earned -- over just one-third of an inning in the appearance. The Tigers and Jimenez insist the reliever is healthy, although it will be interesting to track his velocity moving forward. Jimenez is viewed as the team's closer of the future, but he's posted a 12.54 ERA over 11 appearances in the majors and now is having velocity issues. That, combined with Shane Greene pitching well, probably means it's safe for those stashing Jimenez in deeper formats to go ahead and drop him. Rotoworld.com 22 minutes ago
  • Odubel Herrera (hamstring) might go on DL
    Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said Thursday that Odubel Herrera (hamstring) "might have to go on the DL."

    Advice: "We’re thinking a lot about it," the skipper added. Herrera missed a third straight game Thursday with a strained left hamstring and he hasn't recovered as quickly as hoped. The injury comes at a poor time for Herrera's fantasy owners, as he's been one of the hottest hitters in baseball with a .379/.431/.636 line during his current 17-game hitting streak.

  • Cubs expect Lester (lat) to miss 1-2 starts
    After an initial exam Thursday night, the Cubs are hopeful that Jon Lester (lat) will only miss 1-2 starts.

    Advice: Lester was sent to see Dr. Stephen Gryzlo for a more in-depth exam, and it's possible Gryzlo will determine the injury is more serious. However, at least initially, it appears that the left-hander might not miss too much time. Even in a best-case scenario, a trip to the disabled list is virtually guaranteed. We'll find out more about Lester's condition later Friday. Mike Montgomery will fill in as long as Lester is out. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:14 am

  • Rob Segedin optioned to Triple-A
    Dodgers optioned INF/OF Rob Segedin to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Segedin just returned from the disabled list earlier this week and now finds himself back in the minors. He has one hit in seven at-bats during his brief time with the big club this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:41 am

  • Mazara drives in five, Rangers hold off Sox
    Nomar Mazara went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and five RBI in total, and the Rangers fended off the White Sox 9-8 on Thursday.

    Advice: Mazara actually had a pair of big hits in the game, tying it with a two-run single in the third inning before breaking a tie with his three-run shot in the fifth. He's now homered in two straight and has 16, with an impressive 82 RBI -- fifth-most in the American League -- on the year. He's been especially potent in recent days, going 15-for-31 over his last eight games. The tear has his season line up to .260/.336/.440. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:34 pm
  • Claudio works two innings to earn sixth save
    Alex Claudio allowed a run over two innings of work, earning his sixth save Thursday against the White Sox.

    Advice: Jose Abreu crushed an off-speed offering in the ninth inning to make it a one-run game, but Claudio was able to shut the door to earn the save. He struck out three in his two innings of work. The southpaw isn't a conventional closer type, having struck out just 46 in 65 innings this year, but he's got a strong 2.49 ERA and 1.05 WHIP and has actually recorded 10 strikeouts in his last 5 1/3 innings for good measure. It's not the most lucrative job in the world, saves-wise, but Claudio has a hold on the Rangers' closer gig as things stand, and that's worth something in our game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:26 pm
  • Moncada hits third homer in loss to Rangers
    Yoan Moncada hit his third home run of the season and scored twice in Thursday's loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: Moncada tomahawked a ball that looked like it might curve foul, keeping it just inside the right field foul pole for his third dinger of the year. He also walked twice in the loss. The learning curve is steep for the 22-year-old, who's hitting .190/.333/.357 in 25 big league games, but the Sox have all the time in the world to develop their budding star.

  • 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. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:06 pm
  • Pham homers, scores three runs in victory
    Tommy Pham went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and three runs scored in Thursday's win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Pham had already extended his hitting streak to nine games before crushing an inside pitch down the left field line for the solo shot in the ninth. The homer was his 15th of the year, giving him 50 RBI and 66 runs scored in 92 games. An absolute revelation and one of the main reasons the Cardinals were able to climb back into playoff contention, the 29-year-old is hitting .312/.402/.502 overall. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:55 pm
  • Ryan Zimmerman snaps tie with late home run
    Ryan Zimmerman hit a go-ahead solo home run in the eighth inning of Thursday's win over the Padres.

    Advice: The two clubs were tied at 1-1 with two outs in the eighth when Zimmerman stepped to the plate and unloaded for a no-doubt solo blast off Kirby Yates to give the Nats the late lead. For the season as a whole, the veteran first baseman is hitting a gaudy .310/.360/.593 with 29 homers and 86 RBI in 109 games played. He has homered in back-to-back contests and has launched three long balls in his last four games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:32 pm
  • Manuel Margot doubles, scores run in loss
    Manuel Margot went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Thursday's loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: Margot hit his 14th double of the season in this one. Overall, the outfielder owns a .270/.309/.439 batting line with 12 homers and 35 RBI in 87 games played. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:21 pm
  • Jhoulys Chacin walks four in losing effort
    Jhoulys Chacin was unable to find the plate in Thursday's loss to the Nationals, walking four while allowing one run over five innings.

    Advice: Chacin surrendered just three hits and one run -- on an Adam Lind sacrifice fly in the third inning -- but control issues forced him to an early exit after five innings. He threw just 63 of his 104 pitches for strikes. Chacin has walked four batters in each of his last two starts and has handed out at least three free passes in six of his last 10 outings. He will carry a 3.98 ERA and 1.28 WHIP into a road showdown with the Cardinals next time he toes the rubber. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:17 pm
  • Aaron Nola knocked for five runs vs. Giants
    Aaron Nola surrendered five runs on seven hits over five innings in Thursday's loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Nola struck out three and walked three in the outing. The Giants burned him for two runs in the third inning via RBI singles by Hunter Pence and Buster Posey, then three more in the fifth via a two-run double by Jarrett Parker and an RBI single from Brandon Crawford. Prior to Thursday's start, Nola had not surrendered more than two runs in an outing since June 16. He will try to get back into the groove when he brings a 3.26 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 128/38 K/BB ratio (124 1/3 innings) into a home date with the Marlins next time he takes to the mound. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:04 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. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:37 pm
  • Gardner has two runs, two RBI against Mets
    Brett Gardner had a double, two RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Mets.

    Advice: With the bases loaded in the fourth inning, Gardner delivered a two-run double as part of a four-run frame for the Yanks. He's now got 75 runs scored on the year, seventh-most in the American League. The 33-year-old is batting .248/.341/.430 with 19 homers, 51 RBI, those 75 runs and 15 stolen bases on the year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:34 pm
  • Jon Lester (lat) headed for a check-up
    Jon Lester (lat) is headed to see Dr. Stephen Gryzlo.

    Advice: This comes after Lester exited Thursday's start with lat tightness. The left-hander was blown up for nine runs in that start and didn't throw with his usual velocity. The Cubs aren't expected to update Lester's status until Friday at the earliest, though it's a near certainty that he'll be placed on the disabled list. Mike Montgomery, who logged 4 1/3 innings out of the bullpen on Thursday, is an obvious candidate to replace Lester in the starting rotation. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:24 pm

  • Odubel Herrera remains sidelined Thursday
    Odubel Herrera (hamstring) is not in the Phillies' lineup Thursday against the Giants.

    Advice: There was some optimism that Herrera may return for Thursday night's series opener, but obviously that wasn't the case. He remains day-to-day with a lingering hamstring injury. Nick Williams will man center field and bat second against Giants right-hander Jeff Samardzija. Thursday will mark Herrera's third straight absence. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:00 pm

  • Jon Lester diagnosed with left lat tightness
    Jon Lester departed his start Thursday against the Reds due to left lat tightness.

    Advice: Lester called for a trainer after throwing 40 pitches in a brutal second inning that saw the Reds post nine runs -- seven of which were charged to the veteran southpaw. Lester might not be able to take his next turn in the Cubs' rotation and could even require a disabled list stint. He'll be reevaluated on Friday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:47 pm

  • Lester leaves during nine-run second inning
    Jon Lester left with a trainer in the second inning of his start Thursday against the Reds.

    Advice: Lester had allowed a whopping eight runs -- seven earned -- on one walk and seven hits in the top of the second when he signaled toward the dugout. He didn't appear seriously hurt, but look for a status update sometime this afternoon on the veteran left-hander. Cincinnati wound up scoring nine total runs in the frame.

  • Mazara goes 3-for-5 with a homer, three RBI
    Nomar Mazara went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in a win over the Tigers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He belted a two-run shot off starter Anibal Sanchez in the second inning, then plated another run with a single in the sixth. The promising second-year outfielder is still one of the youngest players in the major leagues but you wouldn't know it from his performance. He has a .258 batting average with 15 home runs and 77 RBI in 108 games. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:27 pm
  • Brett Gardner out Wednesday against Mets
    Brett Gardner is not in the Yankees' lineup Wednesday against the Mets.

    Advice: It's a routine day off for the 33-year-old. The Yankees will go with an outfield of Aaron Hicks, Jacoby Ellsbury and Aaron Judge Wednesday versus right-hander Robert Gsellman. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:15 pm
  • Ryan Zimmerman hits 28th home run in loss
    Ryan Zimmerman hit his 28th home run of the season in Wednesday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: It was a two-run shot in the bottom of the first inning off Angels starter Ricky Nolasco. Zimmerman also singled and drew a walk in the game, finishing 2-for-3 with two RBI and one run scored. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:14 pm
  • Odubel Herrera (hamstring) back Thursday?
    Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said he's hopeful Odubel Herrera (hamstring) will be able to return to the starting lineup Thursday in San Francisco.

    Advice: Herrera is sitting out again Wednesday afternoon against the Padres after suffering a mild left hamstring strain on Monday night, though Mackanin suggested that he could be used as a pinch-hitter in the series finale at Petco Park. Nick Williams is starting in center field, Rhys Hoskins is starting in left field, and Cameron Perkins is in right. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:43 am

  • Odubel Herrera (hamstring) hopes to avoid DL
    Odubel Herrera (hamstring) said he doesn't think he'll need a 10-day disabled list stint.

    Advice: Herrera was held out of Tuesday's game in San Diego after injuring his left hamstring on Monday night. The last-place Phillies might decide to play it safe here and give the 25-year-old outfielder an extended period of rest, but he remains on the active roster for now. Nick Williams started in center field for the Phillies on Tuesday against the Padres, with Rhys Hoskins in left and Hyun Soo Kim in right. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:33 pm

  • 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. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:09 pm

  • Dodgers activate Rob Segedin (wrist) off DL
    Dodgers activated INF/OF Rob Segedin from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: Segedin has missed the last four months due to a toe injury that eventually required surgery. He batted .333/.389/.424 on his 10-game minor league rehab assignment and will give the Dodgers another useful piece for their bench. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:41 pm

  • Odubel Herrera grabs hammy
    Odubel Herrera appeared to hurt his hamstring in his final at-bat Monday, though he was able to stay in the game.

    Advice: It was the top of the ninth when Herrera grabbed his hammy after a swing and a miss. He went on to strike out, and since the Padres were ahead, there was no opportunity to see if he's come back out for the bottom of the ninth. This didn't seem like a particularly serious injury, but if he doesn't play Tuesday, it's probably the culprit. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:15 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. Rotoworld.com 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. Rotoworld.com 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. Rotoworld.com 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. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:29 am
  • Ryan Zimmerman goes deep in victory Sunday
    Ryan Zimmerman belted his 27th home run of the season as the Nationals topped the Giants in the second game of Sunday's doubleheader.

    Advice: Zimmerman swatted a go-ahead solo homer off of Matt Moore in the sixth inning, but the Giants roared back to tie the game the next half inning. Zimmerman finished the night 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and is now slashing a robust .310/.358/.585 with 27 homers and 83 RBI in his resurgent season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:43 pm
  • Manuel Margot hits double in loss to Dodgers
    Manuel Margot went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: The double was Margot's 13th of the season. In addition, the outfielder is slashing .274/.310/.443 with 12 homers and 30 RBI over the course of 336 at-bats. He has hit safely in eight of his last 10 games. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:15 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. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:46 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. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:47 am
  • Jhoulys Chacin goes five in no-decision
    Jhoulys Chacin allowed one earned run, four hits and four walks with three strikeouts over five innings in a no-decision Saturday on the road against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Chacin's five innings tied his lowest over his past 13 starts dating back to May 28. Part of the problem has been walks lately, as he has issued 22 walks over his past 46 2/3 innings. He also hasn't been very good on the road, going 4-6 with a 6.90 ERA over 12 road outings. However, Chacin is 7-2 with a 1.86 ERA through 12 outings at home. He'll be back at Petco Park on Thursday against the Nationals. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:14 am
  • Zimmerman goes 2-for-3 with a run and RBI
    Ryan Zimmerman went 2-for-3, scored a run and drove in a run against the Giants on Saturday.

    Advice: He did his damage early, slapping an RBI double and then scoring on a Daniel Murphy knock in the first inning. The first baseman also walked in the game. He is having perhaps the best season of his 13-year career and is on pace to break his career highs in home runs, RBI and batting average. He is slashing .310/.359/.583 with 26 home runs and 82 RBI in 104 games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:44 pm
  • Jon Lester knocked around in desert
    Jon Lester allowed four runs - three earned - with seven hits and two walks over six innings in a loss at Arizona on Saturday.

    Advice: Lester salvaged the line with nine strikeouts, but he wasn't close to his best. He also uncorked a wild pitch while checking in with a game score of just 51. The veteran southpaw is now 0-1 with a 4.86 ERA across three starts in August. He'll look to get back in the win column in his next scheduled turn Thursday afternoon at Wrigley Field against the Reds. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:02 pm

  • Nola wins, fanning eight over seven strong
    Aaron Nola struck out eight batters and allowed one run in seven innings to beat the Mets 3-1 on Saturday.

    Advice: He surrendered only two hits and two walks in the effortless win. One of those hits was a solo shot by outfielder Yoenis Cespedes. Nola improves to 9-7 with a studly 3.02 ERA and 1.15 WHIP after 19 starts. His results are backed up by a strong 125/35 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 119 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:51 pm
  • Manuel Margot launches pair of home runs
    Manuel Margot swatted a pair of solo home runs in Friday's road win against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Margot has belted three solo homers over his past two outings, and he has seven home runs and 13 RBI across his past 14 games. He has shown a solid amount of power despite being used primarily out of the leadoff spot by manager Andy Green. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:56 am
  • Moncada plays hero with homer, walk-off hit
    Yoan Moncada hit a solo home run in the ninth inning to tie the game then ended it with a walk-off RBI single in the 11th to give the White Sox a 3-2 win over the Astros on Thursday.

    Advice: Moncada was already in Sox fans' good graces after his solo dong off Astros closer Ken Giles pulled them even, and he's got even more fans after lacing a single through a shifted infield in the 11th to bring home the winning run. The 22-year-old took some time to get his bearings at the major league level but now has hits in each of his last six games. There will still be growing pains with 22-year-olds trying to hit MLB pitching, but the talent is evident and Moncada should be a star sooner than later. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:04 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. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:49 pm
  • 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. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:56 pm
  • Manuel Margot out Thursday versus Reds
    Manuel Margot is not in the Padres' starting lineup Thursday versus the Reds.

    Advice: Matt Szczur will play center field and hit seventh against Cincinnati right-hander Luis Castillo. This is a routine day of rest for Margot, who hit his 10th home run of the season on Wednesday night. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:21 am
  • Odubel Herrera triples twice in win
    Odubel Herrera tripled twice Wednesday to help the Phillies top the Braves 3-2.

    Advice: Herrera is the first Phillies player to triple twice in a game since... well, Nick Williams three weeks ago. It hadn't happened for a few years before that, though. Herrera has hit in 12 straight games and is batting .386 with six homers in 24 games during the second half of the season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:10 pm

  • Zimmerman homers twice, drives in five runs
    Ryan Zimmerman went 4-for-4 with two home runs, five RBI and four runs scored in a 10-1 thumping of the Marlins on Wednesday.

    Advice: He cracked a solo shot in the second inning, doubled home a run in the third, laced an RBI single in the fifth and smoked a two-run bomb in the seventh. After limping along with a .218/.272/.370 line with 15 homers last year, he is bashing to the tune of .310/.356/.585 with 26 home runs and 81 RBI in 102 games this year. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:07 pm
  • Tommy Pham receives day off on Wednesday
    Tommy Pham is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Royals.

    Advice: No injury to report, here, but Pham has been struggling to provide any sort of thump of late -- he has not picked up an extra-base hit in 15 games -- and he will have the day off to clear his head. Jose Martinez will man left field in his place and is hitting second. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:00 pm
  • Nomar Mazara picks up three hits
    Nomar Mazara went 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's win over the Mets.

    Advice: All three of the base knocks were singles, and Mazara plated a run with a fielder's choice in the second inning. It's been a relatively disappointing second season for Mazara, although he remains firmly entrenched in the No. 3 spot in the batting order and that's helped him to a 99-RBI pace. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:32 pm
  • Odubel Herrera fills box score in win at ATL
    Odubel Herrera went 3-for-4 with a homer, a double, a walk and two steals as the Phillies topped the Braves 5-2 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Yay for the two steals! Herrera, who was 25-for-32 on the basepaths last year, had been stuck on five steals this year since June 22 and hadn't even attempted a steal since June 24. Of course, the three hits and the homer were nice, too. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:03 pm
