• Homers, drives in four
    Soto went 3-for-5 with a home run, a double, two runs scored and four RBI in Sunday's win against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Soto started the Padres' 12-run outburst with a three-run shot in the first inning before knocking an RBI double in the fourth. The star outfielder has caught fire again as the regular season is nearing an end; over his last 12 games, he's gone 21-for-46 (.457) with nine extra-base hits and 20 RBI. Soto's season slash line is up to .273/.408/.514 with 33 home runs, 31 doubles and 105 RBI. Rotowire.com 5 minutes ago

Bell had previously hit .233 with 11 home runs, 26 runs and 48 RBI over 97 games in Cleveland. Rotowire.com 8 minutes ago

  • Cruises to victory
    Wacha (13-4) yielded two runs on six hits and a walk over seven innings Sunday, striking out six and picking up a win over St. Louis.

    Advice: Wacha rolled through six shutout frames before the Cardinals finally broke through with two runs in the seventh inning. The Padres had already provided 12 runs of support before then. Wacha earned his second straight win and lowered his season ERA to 3.39 across 127.1 frames. However, he owns a 5.54 ERA in five September outings. Wacha is projected to close out his 2023 season with a road start against the White Sox. Rotowire.com 8 minutes ago
  • Exits after being hit by foul tip
    Alvarez (hand) left Sunday's contest versus the Phillies in the bottom of the sixth inning, Tim Healey of Newsday Sports reports.

    Advice: Alvarez took two foul tips off of his left hand and he was forced to leave the game. Omar Narvaez replaced him behind the plate and more information on Alvarez's status will likely come following Sunday's contest. Rotowire.com 11 minutes ago
  • Hit hard by Padres
    Rom (1-4) allowed eight runs (six earned) on 11 hits and a walk over 3.1 innings Sunday, striking out four and taking a loss against San Diego.

    Advice: Rom served up a three-run shot to Juan Soto in the first frame and allowed at least one run in each inning he appeared in. After his first career scoreless start, Rom has been tagged with 11 earned runs in just 6.2 innings over his last two outings. His ERA has shot up to 7.98 through 29.1 MLB frames. Rom is currently lined up to finish his 2023 campaign with a home matchup against the Reds. Rotowire.com 13 minutes ago

  • Swipes two bags
    Edwards went 3-for-4 with two steals in Sunday's victory over Milwaukee.

    Advice: In an increasingly rare start, Edwards was able to display his main calling card, speed, as he stole second base twice in the game. The rookie has struggled to see playing time of late as he's started only twice over the last eight games. Edwards is slashing .303/.333/.348 with three steals, 11 runs and three RBI over 71 big-league appearances. Rotowire.com 19 minutes ago
  • Solid in seventh win
    Cabrera (7-7) earned the win Sunday against Milwaukee, allowing one run on five hits and two walks over five innings. He struck out five.

    Advice: After struggling in a recent outing against the Brewers on Sept. 12 in which he allowed six walks, Cabrera displayed much better control and was able to secure the win Sunday. Since being recalled Sept. 6, the 25-year-old pitcher has a 1.89 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 22:10 K:BB in 19 innings over four starts. He has allowed two or fewer walks in three of those four outings. Cabrera's last start of the season is currently scheduled to be on the road against Pittsburgh. Rotowire.com 27 minutes ago
  • Crushes two homers
    Berti went 2-for-4 with two home runs, three RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's victory over Milwaukee.

    Advice: Berti opened the game's scoring with a 428-foot solo shot off Freddy Peralta in the second inning. However, the 33-year-old utility man wasn't finished as he cracked another homer, this time a 411-foot, two-run one, in the eighth inning. Berti appears to have laid claim to a bigger role as he has started four of the last five games, including the past two at shortstop. He is slashing .286/.327/.386 with six homers, 15 steals, 49 runs and 32 RBI over 127 games this season. Rotowire.com 39 minutes ago

  • Mashed in loss
    Peralta (12-10) took the loss Sunday, allowing four runs on nine hits and no walks over three innings against Miami. He struck out four.

    Advice: The Marlins peppered Peralta for nine hits, equaling his season-high last given up April 15 against San Diego. The results Sunday were highly unusual as the Brewers starting pitcher had produced a 2.42 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 99:16 K:BB over 70.2 innings in the second half before this outing. Perhaps the Marlins were able to take advantage of Peralta's average fastball velocity sitting at 93.5-mph, down a tick from its normal 94.5-mph. He looks to bounce back in his final start of the season, currently scheduled to be at home against the Cubs. Rotowire.com 48 minutes ago
