  • Hamels goes seven innings in win over Angels
    Cole Hamels improved to 9-1 after allowing two runs over seven innings against the Angels on Monday.

    Advice: Hamels gave up just three hits on the night, one of them an RBI single from Martin Maldonado in the second inning. The veteran southpaw struck out three batters and walked a pair en route to his first loss since July 20. Hamels has had good results recently, but he’s struck out just 65 batters through 105 1/3 innings this season. His fantasy upside isn’t what it once was. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:08 pm
  • Skaggs takes loss against Rangers
    Tyler Skaggs was handed the loss after giving up five runs (four earned) in 5 1/3 innings Monday against the Rangers.

    Advice: Most of his issues were in the third inning, as Skaggs gave up an RBI double to Shin-Soo Choo and a three-run homer to Adrian Beltre. The southpaw fanned four and walked one in the loss. Skaggs has had two good starts and two shaky ones since coming off the disabled list earlier this month. He’ll try again for his first victory since April 22 when he squares off against the Astros in a tough matchup this weekend. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:07 pm
  • Claudio converts four-out save Mon.
    Alex Claudio allowed one run while converting a four-out save Monday against the Angels.

    Advice: Claudio entered the game in the eighth after Jose Leclerc walked the bases loaded, but he was able to induce a grounder from Jefry Marte to escape the jam. The southpaw then allowed the first two batters to reach in the bottom of the ninth. Mike Trout brought one of them home on a single, but Claudio was able to get Albert Pujols on a ground out to end the ballgame. The southpaw is an unlikely choice for a closer, but he’s 7-for-9 in save chances to go along with a 2.55 ERA and 48/14 K/BB ratio over 67 innings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:06 pm
  • Stratton holds Brewers in check Monday
    Chris Stratton fired six scoreless frames in Monday’s 2-0 victory over the Brewers.

    Advice: Stratton limited the Brewers to four hits (all of them singles) while walking two batters and striking out one. He now owns a 12 2/3 innings scoreless streak, the longest by a Giants rookie pitcher since Chris Heston in 2015. While he’s one a nice roll, his upcoming schedule could be a challenge. He gets the Diamondbacks in Arizona next before a home start against the Cardinals, but then he takes on the Rockies in Coors Field. Be careful in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:42 pm
  • Davies gives up two runs in loss
    Zach Davies yielded two runs over six innings in a loss to the Giants on Monday.

    Advice: Davies struck out five and walked a pair in the loss. Both runs scored in the fourth inning, first with an RBI double from Brandon Crawford and a run-scoring ground out from Nick Hundley. Usually Davies is the beneficiary of generous run support, but he didn’t get anything on this night. He’ll try to get back in the win column with a tough assignment against the Dodgers next time out. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:41 pm
  • Dyson notches 11th save of season
    Sam Dyson notched his 11th save with a scoreless ninth inning Monday against the Brewers.

    Advice: Dyson issued a one-out walk to Domingo Santana, but he induced a double play grounder from Stephen Vogt to end the ballgame. Meanwhile, Mark Melancon threw a scoreless eighth inning and struck out two batters along the way. Dyson has been great in the closer role and the Giants are being careful with Melancon, so they might not change things down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:40 pm
  • Brad Goldberg optioned to Triple-A
    White Sox optioned RHP Brad Goldberg to Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: He's clearing out for the arrival of Lucas Giolito, who will officially be recalled Tuesday to make his first start for the White Sox. Goldberg holds an 8.25 ERA and hideous 3/14 K/BB ratio over 12 relief innings with the big club this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:16 pm
  • Carson Fulmer optioned to Triple-A
    White Sox optioned RHP Carson Fulmer to Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Fulmer was the 26th man for Monday's doubleheader versus the Twins and he was rocked for six runs over 1 2/3 innings in his first major league start. The 23-year-old will return to a 5.61 ERA at Charlotte. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:14 pm
  • Gee spins six innings of one-run ball Mon.
    Dillon Gee spun six innings of one-run ball in a 10-2 victory in the second game of Monday’s doubleheader against the White Sox.

    Advice: Gee was excellent, allowing just two hits while walking none and striking out four. He was perfect through four innings before Nicky Delmonico took him deep in the fifth. It was his longest appearance in the majors since last September 6. Gee is a couple of years removed from being even somewhat interesting from a fantasy perspective. He’ll have to keep it going to prove otherwise. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:11 pm
  • Alex Wood's SC joint flares up again Monday
    Alex Wood dealt with more inflammation in his SC joint during Monday's start versus the Pirates.

    Advice: The joint runs between the manubrium of the sternum and the clavicle bone. Wood missed a couple weeks of action with the same issue in the first half and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts referred to the situation as "a little concerning." Wood's velocity has dropped steadily this season and was down again Monday and the SC joint problem might be at least partly to blame. It sounds like Wood will probably skip a start or two, but we'll know for sure later this week. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:10 pm

  • Wood allows three homers in no-decision
    Alex Wood yielded three earned runs over six innings Monday in a no-decision against the Pirates.

    Advice: Wood left the game with the Dodgers trailing 3-0, but the never-say-die club pulled out yet another comeback victory -- this one in 12 innings. Wood gave up five hits, including three solo home runs, though he struck out five and issued zero walks. The left-hander stands 14-1 on the year with a 2.41 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 127/30 K/BB ratio in 123 1/3 frames. Up next for him is a start at home against the Brewers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:49 pm

  • Cole charged with five earned in no-decision
    Gerrit Cole was charged with five earned runs over 6 1/3 innings Monday in a no-decision versus the Dodgers.

    Advice: Cole hung zeros until the top of the seventh, when the first-place Dodgers exploded for five runs on three singles, a walk, and a big grand slam off the bat of Curtis Granderson. Cole left to a chorus of boos at PNC Park after spoiling a 3-0 lead and Pittsburgh eventually lost the game in extra innings. The right-hander has a disappointing 4.16 ERA in 26 starts this season. He'll face the Reds on the road next. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:45 pm
  • Britton earns 11th save Monday vs. Oakland
    Zach Britton tallied his 11th save of the season on Monday night against the Athletics.

    Advice: Orioles manager Buck Showalter turned to his closer to secure the final out after Khris Davis reached on a fielding error and Alec Asher issued a two-out walk to Matt Chapman, putting two men on and the tying run in the on-deck circle. Britton, who's been pretty sharp over the last three weeks, needed just four pitches to induce a game-ending groundout from Bruce Maxwell. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:23 pm
  • Miley holds A's to two runs in victory Mon.
    Wade Miley held the Athletics to two earned runs over six-plus innings Monday for his seventh win of the season.

    Advice: Miley again struggled with free passes, issuing four of them, but he easily out-dueled A's starter Chris Smith and the Orioles' offense backed the 30-year-old left-hander with seven runs of support. Miley yielded five hits and struck out six while working into the top of the seventh inning. He's now 7-10 on the year with a 5.11 ERA, 1.68 WHIP, and 118/76 K/BB ratio in 26 starts covering 132 frames. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:20 pm
  • Harvey (shoulder) goes three in rehab start
    Matt Harvey (shoulder) allowed two runs on four hits and a walk over three innings in a rehab start with Double-A Binghamton on Monday.

    Advice: He struck out three and gave up a home run. More important than his line is that Harvey was reportedly sitting mostly in the 89-92 mph range with his fastball, which obviously isn't ideal. It was the righty's third rehab start, and he's obviously going to need at least one more before rejoining the Mets' rotation. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:52 pm

  • Familia (shoulder) could return this weekend
    Mike Puma of the New York Post hears that Jeurys Familia (shoulder) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as this weekend.

    Advice: Familia has tossed two scoreless innings on his rehab assignment so far and will pitch on back-to-back days Tuesday and Wednesday. That's often the last step before a reliever is activated, so Familia will get a day of rest Thursday before likely being activated Friday if all goes well. A.J. Ramos might keep the closer job initially if the Mets want to ease Familia back into things but the latter should get his job back in short order. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:27 pm

  • Tyler Skaggs returns from bereavement list
    Angels activated LHP Tyler Skaggs from the bereavement list.

    Advice: Skaggs was away over the weekend following the passing of his grandfather. He will start Monday against the Rangers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:20 pm
  • Andrew Bailey (shoulder) placed on DL
    Angels placed RHP Andrew Bailey on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to August 18, with a right shoulder strain.

    Advice: Bailey hasn't pitched in nearly a week, but it's clear he was never over the shoulder ailment that's kept him out most of the season. He's a poor bet to contribute any more this year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:17 pm

  • Cueto scratched from rehab start with illness
    Johnny Cueto (forearm) was scratched from his rehab start with Triple-A Sacramento on Monday due to illness.

    Advice: It's not a big deal, as Cueto is expected to take the ball Tuesday instead. He figures to require at least a couple minor league rehab outings before rejoining the Giants' rotation. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:19 pm

  • Ryan Webb undergoes hip surgery
    Ryan Webb recently underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum and damaged cartilage in his hip.

    Advice: Webb revealed the news himself on Twitter. The 31-year-old posted a 3.98 ERA and 13/12 K/BB ratio over 20 1/3 innings for Triple-A Sacramento in the Giants organization this season. He had to settle for a minor league contract this year and will have to again over the winter. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:15 pm

  • David Price (elbow) resumes throwing Monday
    David Price (elbow) played catch from 60 feet on Monday.

    Advice: Price was shut down for a while due to ongoing stiffness in his left elbow, but he is apparently experiencing improvement. The left-hander is hoping to feel well enough to play catch again on Tuesday and would progress his throwing program from there. The Red Sox remain hopeful that he'll rejoin their rotation this season, but there are no guarantees. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:37 pm

  • George Kontos over groin injury
    George Kontos was unavailable Sunday due to a tight groin, but he worked out pregame Monday and is ready to go.

    Advice: Kontos has allowed just one run while striking out seven over five innings since the Pirates claimed him off waivers. He'll continue to operate in middle relief. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:08 pm
  • Rex Brothers optioned to Triple-A
    Braves optioned LHP Rex Brothers to Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Brothers has struck out 22 across 15 1/3 innings with the Braves, but he's also walked nine and posted a 7.63 ERA. The former Rockies closer will be back in September. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:43 pm

  • Tommy Milone to start Tuesday for Mets
    Tommy Milone will start Tuesday against the Diamondbacks in place of Steven Matz (arm).

    Advice: It's unclear at this point how long Matz will be sidelined, but Milone should get at least a couple starts. He's posted a 7.91 ERA over nine appearances -- six starts -- in the majors this season and can be avoided for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:14 pm

  • Yu Darvish throws bullpen session
    Yu Darvish (back) got through a bullpen session without incident Monday and is tentatively scheduled to start for the Dodgers on Sunday.

    Advice: First, he'll throw once more on Thursday. If Darvish makes it back Sunday as planned, he'll have missed just one start. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:57 pm

  • Clayton Kershaw to make minor league start
    The Dodgers are planning on having Clayton Kershaw (back) make a rehab start on Saturday at Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Kershaw used all of his pitches in today's simulated game, indicating that he could be ready to start in the majors this weekend. The Dodgers, though, have no reason to take any chances with him, and pitching him in a minor league game in which he won't have to hit and might not be as tempted to try any challenging plays on defense seems like the smart play. He'll throw 60 pitches Saturday and then perhaps start for the Dodgers on September 1. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:55 pm

  • Drew Pomeranz set for Wednesday
    Drew Pomeranz (back) said he's ready to pitch Wednesday after throwing his regular between-outings bullpen session Monday.

  • Jeurys Familia to pitch back-to-back
    Jeurys Familia (shoulder) will pitch on back-to-back days for short-season Brooklyn on Tuesday and Wednesday.

    Advice: Familia has pitched two scoreless innings since beginning his rehab assignment Wednesday. If these next two appearances go well, he'll be activated in short order. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:22 pm

  • Clayton Kershaw throws four simulated innings
    Clayton Kershaw's three-inning simulated game Monday turned into a four-inning performance.

    Advice: No quotes from Kershaw or the Dodgers yet, but it had to have gone well for Kershaw to get in the extra inning. Speculation had Kershaw returning from a back strain on Sept. 1, but now there's the chance he could be activated this weekend. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:10 pm

  • White Sox call up Fulmer to start
    White Sox recalled RHP Carson Fulmer from Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Fulmer is up as the 26th man for today's doubleheader. He'll start Game 2 against the Twins and then likely get sent back to Triple-A to make room for Lucas Giolito on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:34 am
  • Clayton Kershaw (back) could return Sept. 1
    Clayton Kershaw (back) could potentially rejoin the Dodgers' rotation on September 1.

    Advice: The way things are lined up, the earlier Kershaw might make it back is August 31, but the club waiting another day when rosters expand is more likely. Kershaw will throw a three-inning simulated game Monday and begin a rehab assignment next weekend. It sounds like it may be the only rehab start he needs before rejoining the rotation, assuming all goes well. Kershaw has been out for the last four weeks with a lower back strain.

  • Pomeranz (back) expected to start Wednesday
    Drew Pomeranz (back) is expected to make his next scheduled start on Wednesday in Cleveland.

    Advice: Pomeranz was lifted from his start last Friday due to back spasms, but he's responded well to treatment the last few days. He'll throw a bullpen session Monday before officially being cleared for Wednesday if all goes well. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:25 am

  • Kershaw (back) to make rehab start this week
    Clayton Kershaw (back) is on track to begin a rehab assignment next weekend with either Double-A Tulsa or Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: That's assuming he gets through a simulated game -- which will take place Monday -- with no issues. Kershaw tossed a simulated game last Wednesday with no problems. It's unclear at this point how many rehab starts the left-hander will require. Kershaw has been out for the last four weeks with a lower back strain. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:17 am

  • Tommy Milone activated from disabled list
    Mets activated LHP Tommy Milone from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Milone missed the last three months with a sprained knee. He'll operate in long relief for now but could get some starts down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:40 am
    4:10 pm vs Ari
     
  • Cueto to resume rehab assignment Monday
    Johnny Cueto (forearm) will resume his minor league rehab assignment Monday at Triple-A Sacramento.

    Advice: Cueto was originally placed on the DL because of a blister issue but suffered strained flexor tendon while making a rehab appearance for High-A San Jose on July 31. Despite the setback, Cueto has made it through a few bullpen sessions and is now ready to try his hand in some rehab games. The right-hander is expected to throw between 50-60 pitches on Monday. If all goes well, Cueto should be back in the Giants' rotation sometime next month. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:46 pm

  • Carson Fulmer to start Monday versus Twins
    Carson Fulmer will be called up to start the second game of Monday's doubleheader against the Twins.

    Advice: He'll be added as the 26th man while Lucas Giolito, who had been slated to go in Game 2, will have his start pushed back to Tuesday. Fulmer has yet to pitch in the big leagues this year after making eight appearances for the Pale Hose in 2016. Monday will be his first major league start. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:58 pm
  • Pomeranz (back) expects to make next start
    Drew Pomeranz (back) said Saturday that while he's sore, he fully expects to make his next start.

    Advice: Pomeranz was lifted from his start on Friday after just 3 1/3 innings due to back spasms. It appears to be just a minor issue though, so look for him to get the ball on Wednesday against the Indians in Cleveland. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:02 pm

  • Dodgers place Yu Darvish (back) on 10-day DL
    Dodgers placed RHP Yu Darvish on the 10-day disabled list with back tightness.

    Advice: The Dodgers aren't overly concerned with the issue, and Darvish is only expected to miss one start. He's slated to return to the rotation next Sunday against the Brewers. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:43 am

  • Dodgers may skip Yu Darvish's next start
    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Saturday that the club may skip Yu Darvish's next start as the right-hander is still experiencing tightness in his back.

    Advice: Darvish was lifted from Wednesday's start as a precaution due to the back tightness, but it looks as though it's more serious than they initially thought. The club will take every possible precaution here, so look for Brock Stewart to possibly start in his place against the Pirates in Pittsburgh. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:24 am

  • Drew Pomeranz left start due to back spasms
    Drew Pomeranz left Friday's start against the Yankees due to back spasms.

    Advice: Pomeranz was forced to exit after tossing 3 1/3 scoreless innings. It doesn't sound overly serious, but more should be known about the status for his next start in a couple of days. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:25 pm

  • Pomeranz leaves with injury in fourth inning
    Drew Pomeranz was forced to leave Friday's start against the Yankees in the fourth inning due to an apparent injury.

    Advice: It's unclear exactly what occurred, but it appeared to be some sort of leg issue that forced Pomeranz from the game. Prior to departing, he had scattered four hits and struck out four over 3 1/3 scoreless innings. Look for the Red Sox to provide an update on his status shortly. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:23 pm

  • Kershaw (back) to throw sim. game Tues.-Wed.
    Clayton Kershaw (back) will throw his next simulated game on Tuesday or Wednesday.

  • David Price (elbow) remains shut down
    David Price remains shut down from throwing due to ongoing stiffness in his left elbow.

    Advice: Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe writes that while Red Sox manager John Farrell is still hopeful of Price returning this season, he "acknowledges the window is closing." The left-hander has had a couple starts and stops in his throwing program since he landed on the disabled list nearly three weeks ago with what the club called inflammation at the time. Price, of course, didn't make his season debut until late May because of elbow issues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:43 pm

  • Tyler Skaggs goes on bereavement list
    Angels placed LHP Tyler Skaggs on the bereavement list.

    Advice: Skaggs' grandfather passed away. He is scheduled to start Monday against the Rangers and will rejoin the team then. Andrew Heaney is back from the disabled list to take Skaggs' spot on the roster. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:34 pm
  • Gee expected to start during doubleheader
    Dillon Gee is expected to get a start for the Twins during Monday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

    Advice: The start had been expected to go to Dietrich Enns (shoulder), but he was placed on the disabled list Thursday. Gee will be pitching on three days' rest after he made a relief appearance Thursday, but he threw only 36 pitches over 2 2/3 scoreless innings. The veteran righty holds a 3.16 ERA and 22/8 K/BB ratio over 25 2/3 innings in his eight appearances -- one start -- in the majors this season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:22 am
  • 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 Thursday, 11:26 pm
  • Sam Dyson able to work around walk for save
    Sam Dyson recorded his 10th save of the season via a scoreless ninth inning in Thursday's win over the Phillies.

    Advice: With the Giants holding a 5-4 advantage entering the ninth, Dyson recorded the first two outs without issue before losing a touch of command. He walked Andres Blanco and fell behind Cesar Hernandez before coming back to strike him out looking to end the contest. Dyson has been money with the Giants, especially of late -- he has not allowed a hit in any of his last four appearances. Since the Rangers traded him over to the National League, the reliever owns a 2.05 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 21/12 K/BB ratio in 26 1/3 frames. He is 10-for-11 in save chances since putting on the San Francisco uniform. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:15 pm
  • Yu Darvish exits start with back tightness
    The Dodgers said after Wednesday's game that Yu Darvish left as a precaution because of back tightness.

    Advice: Darvish had thrown 90 pitches while giving up three runs (all on solo homers) in six innings, so there's no guarantee that he was going to get through the seventh anyway. The hope is that this will cause no further issue. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:42 pm

  • Hamels wins despite allowing four runs Wed.
    Cole Hamels was credited with a win over the Tigers even though he yielded four runs in six frames on Wednesday.

    Advice: He struggled with his control, walking five batters and allowing a pair of home runs in the contest. Lucky for him his teammates brought their premium lumber to the ballpark to back him up with 12 runs. He served up a home run to the first batter he faced (Ian Kinsler) and was taken deep by center fielder Mikie Mahtook in the third frame. Hamels improved to 8-1 with a 3.48 ERA in 15 starts. His 62/31 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 98 1/3 innings is far worse than his stellar career norm and sounds a note of concern for the rest of the season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:20 pm
  • Matt Harvey goes three innings on Wednesday
    Matt Harvey (shoulder) spun three shutout innings Wednesday in a rehab start for Low-A Brooklyn.

    Advice: He finished with three strikeouts and only allowed one hit over 36 pitches. Harvey fared much better Wednesday than he did in his previous rehab outing on Saturday (1 IP, 1 H, 1 BB). He'll still need a couple starts to get his pitch count back up but it won't be long before Harvey is back in the Mets' starting rotation. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:14 pm

  • Familia tosses a scoreless inning Wednesday
    Jeurys Familia (shoulder) tossed a scoreless inning Wednesday in a rehab appearance for High-A St. Lucie.

    Advice: He made it through the sixth inning in just nine pitches, collecting a walk, a strikeout and an inning-ending double play. Familia is nearing a return after taking over three months to recover from a blood clot in his throwing shoulder. A.J. Ramos has been keeping the seat warm for Familia in the ninth inning.

  • Kershaw to throw another simulated game
    Clayton Kershaw (back) will pitch another simulated game on Monday.

    Advice: He'll pitch a three-inning simulated game with around 45 pitches. Kershaw was hoping to begin a minor league rehab assignment but Triple-A Oklahoma City is away at Colorado Springs on Monday while High-A Rancho Cucamonga has the night off. The left-hander looked sharp during Wednesday's simulated game, facing Rob Segedin, Joc Pederson and Chase Utley. A late-August/early-September return seems realistic for the league's best pitcher.

  • David Price (elbow) held out on Wednesday
    David Price (elbow) didn't throw on Wednesday following a minor setback on Tuesday.

    Advice: Price said he didn't feel quite as good Tuesday as he did this past weekend when he threw in New York. It doesn't sound overly serious, though Price went for treatment on Wednesday and will wait for the green light to resume throwing. Doug Fister has been filling his spot in the starting rotation.

  • Cole allows four earned in no-decision
    Gerrit Cole surrendered four earned runs over six innings Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Brewers.

    Advice: Cole struck out nine Milwaukee hitters, but he issued two walks and gave up five hits -- including three home runs. It was his worst outing since late June and Pittsburgh eventually fell 7-6. The 26-year-old right-hander stands 10-8 on the season with a 4.04 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, and 141/38 K/BB ratio in 153 2/3 innings. He'll face the first-place Dodgers next. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:20 pm
  • Cueto (forearm) to throw 70-pitch bullpener
    Johnny Cueto (forearm) is scheduled to throw a 70-pitch bullpen session on Friday.

    Advice: Cueto made it through a 25-pitch bullpen session Tuesday without issue and is now ready to ramp things up. He landed on the disabled list July 15 with multiple blisters on his right hand and then suffered a flexor tendon strain in a rehab start on July 31. The right-hander could return to the Giants' rotation sometime in September if he can avoid further setbacks. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:57 am

  • Alex Wood goes seven strong in no-decision
    Alex Wood allowed one earned run, six hits and no walks with six strikeouts across seven innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the White Sox.

    Advice: Wood threw 58 of his 79 pitches for strikes in the quality start. After a couple of rough outings to wrap up the month of July, he has bounced back with three straight quality starts in August while turning in a 2-0 record and 1.89 ERA. He'll look to get back into the win column on Monday in Pittsburgh opposite Gerrit Cole. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:53 am

  • Wade Miley doesn't last long in Seattle
    Wade Miley allowed three earned runs, five hits and three walks with four strikeouts over just 4 2/3 innings in a loss Tuesday in Seattle.

    Advice: Miley threw just 53 of his 95 pitches for strikes as his ERA inched up to 5.21. The left-hander was unable to build off of the momentum of his quality start last time out in Oakland, his only outing with three or fewer earned runs and six or more innings since June 1. He simply cannot be trusted outside of deeper AL-only play. His next scheduled start is set for Sunday at home against the Angels. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:05 am
  • Zach Davies beats Pirates for 14th win of '17
    Zach Davies limited the Pirates to one run over 6 2/3 innings to pick up his 14th victory on Tuesday.

    Advice: We're three-quarters of the way through the season and Zach Davies has a realistic chance at 20 wins. He hasn't been great; his 4.26 ERA is worse than his 3.97 mark from last year, when he went 11-7 in 28 starts. His strikeouts are down and his walks are up. Still, he has taken a step forward this last month and the run support has been there all year long. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:25 pm
  • Tyler Skaggs solid in loss to Nationals
    Tyler Skaggs held the Nationals to two runs over five innings but took a loss Tuesday.

    Advice: Skaggs walked a couple and gave up seven hits on the night, including a pair of solo home runs to Howie Kendrick. He needed 91 pitches to cover his five frames. All told, though, it’s not a bad showing in what was a difficult matchup. Skaggs struggled in his first start back from the disabled list but has been much better the last two times out. He’ll get the Rangers and Astros at home next week. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:04 pm
  • Familia (shoulder) to begin rehab on Wed.
    Jeurys Familia (shoulder) will begin his minor league rehab assignment on Wednesday.

    Advice: Familia was initially scheduled to begin appearing in minor league games on Tuesday, but the Mets have apparently decided to give him one more day of rest. If all goes well on the farm, the 27-year-old closer should be activated off the disabled list next week. A.J. Ramos has been filling in at the back end of the New York bullpen.

  • David Price (elbow) played catch Tuesday
    David Price (elbow) played catch on flat ground Tuesday at Fenway Park.

    Advice: It was the fourth flat-ground throwing session for Price, who should be ready to step back atop a mound by the end of the week. The left-hander has been on the disabled list since July 25 with elbow inflammation. There's no official timetable yet, but he seems to be trending toward an early-September return to the Red Sox rotation. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:20 pm

  • Cueto (forearm) throws bullpen session
    Johnny Cueto (forearm) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday afternoon.

    Advice: It was his first mound workout since he left a rehab start on July 31 with a flexor tendon strain. There is no timetable currently for Cueto's return to the Giants' starting rotation. He may run out of time. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:54 pm

  • Harvey (shoulder) set for next rehab start
    Matt Harvey (shoulder) will make his next rehab start Wednesday with Low-A Brooklyn.

    Advice: Harvey allowed one run on one hit and one walk in one inning of work Saturday in his first rehab outing. He threw 18 pitches, so the Mets are being extra careful with him as he makes his way back from a stress reaction in his shoulder. He's likely still a few outings away from rejoining the Mets' rotation. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:05 am

  • Cueto (forearm) to throw off mound this week
    Johnny Cueto (forearm) will throw off a mound later this week.

    Advice: It will be his first bullpen session since he exited a rehab start two weeks ago with a flexor tendon strain. Cueto should be allowed to resume a rehab assignment fairly soon as long as all goes well, but he doesn't look like a great bet to be healthy and effective down the stretch.

  • Familia (shoulder) to begin rehab assignment
    Jeurys Familia (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with the Gulf Coast League Mets on Tuesday.

    Advice: It's unclear how many rehab appearances he'll require, but it will surely be a handful given that he's been out since mid-May. General manager Sandy Alderson said earlier this month that Familia could return as soon as this week, but that doesn't figure to happen. He certainly looks to be in line for activation before the end of the month, however. A.J. Ramos is closing for the Mets for now but will eventually slide into a setup role to accommodate Familia.

  • David Price throws for third consecutive day
    David Price (elbow) threw without issue for the third consecutive day on Sunday.

    Advice: Price continues to progress in his recovery from left elbow inflammation. He's moving closer to mound work and barring any setbacks could be on a big league mound before the end of the month. Rotoworld.com Aug 13, 2:08 pm

  • Sam Dyson earns ninth save on Sunday
    Sam Dyson earned his ninth save of the year on Sunday afternoon against the Nationals.

    Advice: Dyson retired all three batters he faced in an easy 10-pitch ninth inning to protect the Giants' two-run lead. He has looked like a new man since arriving in San Francisco, though Mark Melancon is now off the disabled list and will eventually reclaim closer duties. Rotoworld.com Aug 13, 1:30 pm
  • Stratton fans 10 in brilliant outing vs. Nats
    Chris Stratton struck out 10 batters over 6 2/3 scoreless innings Sunday in the Giants' 4-2 win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Stratton gave up just one walk and five hits -- all singles -- as the Giants took the first game of Sunday's doubleheader at Nationals Park. It was a surprisingly great outing from the 26-year-old right-hander, who entered the day with a 6.63 ERA and 1.74 WHIP. We wouldn't expect any repeat performances from him moving forward. Rotoworld.com Aug 13, 1:19 pm
  • Kershaw (back) cleared for simulated game
    Clayton Kershaw (back) is scheduled to throw a simulated game Wednesday at Dodger Stadium.

    Advice: Kershaw made it through his second bullpen session Sunday without issue and is ready for the next step in his rehabilitation from a lower back strain. The ace left-hander is on track to return to the Los Angeles rotation before the end of August. He's been out since July 24. Rotoworld.com Aug 13, 11:19 am

  • Matt Harvey lasts one inning in rehab start
    Matt Harvey (shoulder) allowed one hit, one run and one walk in his lone inning of work Saturday in a rehab start for Low-A Brooklyn.

    Advice: Not a great outing for Harvey, who threw just seven of his 18 pitches for strikes while topping out at 93 mph. Surely he'll need a few more appearances before he's ready to join the Mets' rotation. Given his lengthy injury history and where New York is in the standings, Harvey won't be rushed as he works back from a stress reaction in his right shoulder. Rotoworld.com Aug 12, 5:55 pm

  • Pomeranz runs unbeaten streak to 11 starts
    Drew Pomeranz scattered seven hits and three runs over 7 2/3 innings Saturday in the Red Sox’s win over the Yankees.

    Advice: He walked two and struck out five while throwing 76 of his 111 pitches for strikes. Pomeranz got off to a sluggish start by serving up a two-run jack to Gary Sanchez in the first inning. He settled down after that, not allowing another run until the fourth. Pomeranz has come up huge this year, providing a stellar 3.39 ERA over 23 starts. The left-hander is now tied with Minnesota’s Ervin Santana for third in the AL with 12 victories. Pomeranz will toe the rubber again Friday night at Fenway against the same Yankees he just beat.

  • Andrew Bailey returns from 60-day DL
    Angels activated RHP Andrew Bailey from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Bailey is finally back after a four-month bout with shoulder inflammation. The injury-prone right-hander looked rusty during his minor league rehab, producing a lethargic 7.04 ERA over eight outings between the Arizona League and Triple-A Salt Lake. Closer duties are up for grabs in Anaheim with Bud Norris quickly losing his grip on the ninth inning, but Bailey probably won't be a candidate for saves, at least not initially.
