  • Betts starting in the outfield against Rays
    Mookie Betts (foot) is starting in the outfield on Saturday against the Rays for the first time since September 12.

    Advice: Betts has been suffering from discomfort in his left foot. An MRI showed only inflammation. He missed several games due to the injury and returned to action on Friday as the designated hitter. Betts has a .291 batting average with 28 home runs, 78 RBI and 131 runs scored. He's stolen 15 bases this year but he might take it easy on the basepaths this week due to the foot injury. Rotoworld.com 18 minutes ago
     
  • Reds send five players home with illness
    Reds manager David Bell sent Robert Stephenson, Freddy Galvis, Michael Lorenzen, Kevin Gausman and Josh VanMeter home due to illness.

    Advice: They will miss Saturday's game against the Mets. The Reds' bullpen will be particularly short-handed. The illness has been sweeping the Reds' clubhouse in recent days. Joey Votto and Derek Dietrich missed games earlier in the week. The Reds hope quarantining the sick players might prevent the rest of the team from catching the bug. Rotoworld.com 27 minutes ago

  • Senzel to have shoulder surgery next week
    Nick Senzel will have surgery next week to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder.

    Advice: He suffered the injury while crashing into the center field wall back on August 31. He briefly tried to play through it but was shut down a few days later. Reds manager David Bell said he hopes Senzel is ready for Opening Day 2020. Senzel has been injury-prone since being selected with the second overall pick of the 2016 draft. He reached the majors for the first time this year, slashing .256/.315/.427 with 12 home runs, 42 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 104 games. He was originally a third baseman but was blocked by Eugenio Suarez, so the Reds moved him to second base. After the departure of Billy Hamilton the Reds moved Senzel to center field this year. He has looked good defensively but struggled a bit more than expected at the plate. The 24-year-old is still a good bet to develop into a strong fantasy hitter with good pop and speed in the future.

  • Hamels still dealing with shoulder fatigue
    Cubs starter Cole Hamels is still experiencing shoulder fatigue and there is no timetable for his return to action.

    Advice: Manager Joe Maddon said Hamels is "progressing" but is not yet able to resume throwing. This would seemingly rule Hamels out for the final week of the regular season. He last pitched on Monday against the Reds and lasted just 3 1/3 innings. The veteran left-hander is 7-7 with a 3.92 ERA in 26 starts this year. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:58 am

  • Rays reinstate RHP Chirinos from injured list
    Rays reinstated RHP Yonny Chirinos (finger) from the 10-day injured list.

    Advice: Chirinos has been out since early August with inflammation in his right middle finger. He will pitch out of the bullpen for the final week of the regular season. The 25-year-old is 9-5 with a 3.62 ERA in 17 starts and six relief appearances. The Rays have 39 players on their active roster. 2019 will be the last season for such large September rosters.

  • VanMeter scratched from Reds' lineup Saturday
    Josh VanMeter was scratched from the Reds' starting lineup due to an illness on Saturday.

    Advice: He was set to lead off and play left field against Zack Wheeler and the Mets. Phillip Ervin will take his place. The two outfielders normally platoon in left field but Ervin will have to bat against a right-hander today. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:27 am

  • Howard tosses three scoreless in AFL debut
    Phillies prospect starter Spencer Howard pitched three scoreless innings as the Scottsdale Scorpions defeated the Glendale Desert Dogs on Friday in Arizona Fall League action.

    Advice: He allowed a hit to the first batter he faced and that was it. Howard hit 98 miles per hour with his fastball. The Scottsdale ballpark is using the experimental automated ball/strike umpiring system this season. Howard played across three levels of the minors this year, compiling a combined 3-1 record and 2.03 ERA in 15 starts. He missed two months with shoulder woes. He was a second-round pick in the 2017 draft. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:19 am

  • Baez remains limited to pinch-running duty
    Javier Baez (thumb) continues to be available only as a pinch-runner on Saturday versus the Cardinals.

    Advice: Baez has a hairline fracture in his thumb and cannot grip a bat or wear a fielder's glove. His legs are just fine however and the Cub could utilize his base-running expertise in the right situation late in a game. The team continues to hold out hope that Baez could return to the starting lineup in the post-season if the team rallies to clinch a playoff spot over the final week of the regular season.

  • Max Muncy suffered quad injury on Friday
    Max Muncy tweaked his quadriceps in Friday's game against the Rockies.

    Advice: He banged a pair of RBI-knocks in the contest before straining a quad in the seventh inning. He stroked a two-run double and injured himself while breaking out of the batters' box. He just returned from a wrist fracture a week ago and seemed ready to roll for the playoffs. The Dodgers believe the quad injury is minor but they won't know until re-evaluating him on Saturday. For the season, Muncy is slashing .248/.368/.510 with 33 home runs and 92 RBI in 135 games. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:59 am

  • Wong not starting vs Cubs on Saturday
    Kolten Wong (hamstring) remains out of the Cardinals' lineup against the Cubs on Saturday.

    Advice: Wong injured his left hamstring on Thursday against the Cubs and sat out on Friday. He underwent an MRI but the team has not disclosed the results, For his part, Wong said he didn't feel that bad. The Cardinals will handle him carefully as they have a playoff spot nearly locked up and would like to have their second baseman back in action for the post-season. Tommy Edman will handle the keystone in Wong's absence. Wong has been semi-useful in fantasy leagues this season, primarily because of his wheels. He has a .285 batting average with 11 home runs, 59 RBI and 24 stolen bases in 549 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:49 am

  • Bichette not starting vs Yankees on Saturday
    Bo Bichette (concussion) is not in the lineup against the Yankees on Saturday.

    Advice: Bichette is under concussion protocol after being drilled in the bill of his helmet by a pitch on Thursday. He is considered day-to-day. Richard Urena is starting at shortstop against left-hander James Paxton. Bichette has been fantastic in his rookie season, slashing .311/.358/.571 with 11 home runs and 21 RBI in 46 games.

  • Contreras not starting against Cardinals Sat.
    Willson Contreras is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's tilt against the Cardinals.

    Advice: He will get a day off after starting five days in a row. Victor Caratini will handle the catching duties with Jose Quintana on the mound. Contreras had a down year in 2018 but has rebounded in 2019. He is slashing .275/.359/.541 with 24 home runs and 64 RBI in 99 games. He ranks as the sixth-best catcher this year in 5x5 leagues according to Yahoo. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:24 am
  • Gleyber Torres dealing with leg weakness
    Gleyber Torres is dealing with leg weakness after being removed early from Friday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Torres made a sliding snag of an infield grounder in the fourth inning. When he jumped up to make the throw his plant leg slid out from under him and he unintentionally did the splits while falling to the ground. It looked like a potential groin injury but he was able to stay in the game for a few more innings. He was taken out after complaining of leg weakness in the seventh. Torres will be re-evaluated on Saturday. Look for him to sit out against the Jays on Saturday and potentially beyond. Torres is the only member of the Yankees' Opening Day starting lineup that has not spent time on the injured list this year. He has a .284 batting average with 38 home runs, 90 RBI and 96 runs scored. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:11 am

  • Lux has two hits, steals base, scores twice
    Gavin Lux went 2-for-4 with two runs scored, an RBI and a stolen base on Friday in a rout of the Rockies.

    Advice: Lux picked up his RBI on a single in the seventh inning to score Chris Taylor. The steal is his second since he was promoted to Los Angeles near the beginning of the month, and the 12th if you count the ten he accumulated while in the minors. There was a bit of learning curve when he was first promoted, but it didn't last long. Lux is now hitting .286/.352/.469 with a pair of homers and seven runs driven in over 49 games.

  • Arenado launches homer in loss to Dodgers
    Nolan Arenado cranked a solo homer while going 2-for-3 in a loss to the Dodgers on Friday.

    Advice: Arenado hit one of two homers in the first inning for the Rockies off of Clayton Kershaw, and it gives the superstar third baseman 41 homers on the season. He also singled, and in addition to those homers and 118 RBI, he's slashing .316/.379/.594 on the season. Add in his ridiculous defense, and Arenado remains one of the best players in baseball. You probably already knew that, but it's a nice reminder. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:55 pm
  • Gleyber Torres exits game with knee injury
    Gleyber Torres was removed from Friday night's game against the Blue Jays with a right knee injury.

    Advice: Torres slid for a ball in the field, then his knee appeared to buckle on him as he attempted to throw. After a visit from the team trainer and Yankees' manager Aaron Boone, Torres remained in the game. He was pulled a few innings later though, likely for precautionary reasons. Expect the Yankees to provide an update on his status after the game concludes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:38 pm

  • Chirinos to return as reliever this weekend
    Yonny Chirinos (finger) will be activated from the injured list this weekend to pitch out of the bullpen.

    Advice: Chirinos has been sidelined since early August with inflammation in his right middle finger. It's a bummer that he's not going to have time to be built back up to start, but he should help the Rays out nonetheless. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:57 pm
     
  • Mookie Betts (foot) in Red Sox' lineup Friday
    Mookie Betts (foot) is back in the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He's in the designated hitter spot, as the club doesn't want Betts to have to field on the Rays' artificial turf. It's Betts' first start in over a week, as he's been battling a left foot issue. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:35 pm
     
  • Javier Baez (thumb) still available as PR
    Javier Baez (thumb) remains available off the bench as a pinch-runner.

    Advice: Baez pinch-ran Thursday and scored a run in his first game action since September 1. He will continue to be available in such a role for the remainder of the regular season, but he's not expected to be able to hit or field due to the hairline fracture in his left thumb.

  • Kolten Wong feels optimistic about hamstring
    Kolten Wong said Friday morning that his ailing left hamstring didn't feel that bad.

    Advice: Wong had to exit Thursday's game after the hammy tightened up on him while he was running out a grounder. He will undergo an MRI Friday but is optimistic the injury isn't serious. Even if he's right, Wong figures to miss a few days of action, at minimum. The Cardinals will go with Tommy Edman at second base and Matt Carpenter at third while Wong is out. Edman is batting second and Carpenter fifth on Friday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:37 am

    Advice: Wong was removed from Thursday's game against the Cubs after suffering the injury while running to first base. He spent time on the disabled list near the end of the 2018 season with a similar injury to his left hamstring. The Cardinals should have an update on his status - including a potential timeline for his return - after Friday's exam. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:05 pm

    Kolten Wong was forced to leave Thursday's game against the Cubs due to a left hamstring injury.

    Advice: It's the same hamstring that caused Wong to miss time late in the 2018 season. He'll presumably head for further evaluation -- and perhaps an MRI -- to determine the severity of the injury. Until then, there's no use speculating on how much time he may miss.

  • Cole Hamels (shoulder) won't start Sunday
    Cole Hamels will not start on Sunday against the Cardinals due to fatigue in his left shoulder.

    Advice: Hamels lasted just 3 1/3 innings against the Reds on Monday, and it's certainly possible -- and probable -- that the shoulder fatigue had something to do with it. In order to compensate for the absence, Alec Mills will start on Friday for the Cubs in the critical series with the Cards, with Jose Quintana starting Saturday and Yu Darvish getting the start in the series finale. We should know more on how long Hamels will be out shortly, but it's a big blow for the Cubs. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:31 pm

  • Baez (thumb) cleared for 'light activity'
    Javier Baez (thumb) has begun hitting off a tee and cleared for "light" baseball activity.

    Advice: Baez is reportedly a candidate for pinch-running duty late in the season, and his wheels could certainly help the Cubs down the stretch. He has not been cleared to take batting practices, and he still is having issues catching the baseball because of the hairline fracture in his left thumb. If the Cubs make the postseason he could be able to help at some point, but it's tough to imagine he'll have much of a fantasy impact over these final few days of the regular season.

  • Betts (foot) expected to return this weekend
    Mookie Betts (foot) is expected to be ready to play this weekend at Tampa Bay.

    Advice: Betts has been out for the last week due to discomfort in his left foot, but an MRI taken Monday showed only inflammation and he is apparently responding well to rest and treatment. Red Sox manager Alex Cora noted that he does not want Betts to play the outfield on the Tropicana Field turf, so the reigning AL MVP could get starts at DH with J.D. Martinez (groin) sidelined. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:33 am
     
  • Mookie Betts (foot) sitting again Thursday
    Mookie Betts (foot) is out of the Red Sox starting lineup again on Thursday.

    Advice: Betts has missed almost a full week of action due to discomfort in his left foot. An MRI taken Monday showed only inflammation, but the reigning American League MVP could be limited the rest of the way. Andrew Benintendi, Jackie Bradley, and Gorkys Hernandez are starting across the outfield for Boston in Thursday's matinee against the Giants. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:29 am
     
  • Contreras socks solo homer in loss to Reds
    Willson Contreras crushed a solo homer in the Cubs’ loss to the Reds in extra innings on Wednesday.

    Advice: Contreras lifted a game-tying solo shot -- his 24th round-tripper of the season to left field off Reds’ reliever Robert Stephenson in the seventh inning. It was his lone hit in four at-bats in the low-scoring affair. The 27-year-old backstop owns a solid .278/.364/.551 triple-slash line with 54 runs scored, 24 home runs, 63 RBI and one stolen base in 382 plate appearances. If he stays healthy for a full season, he seems like a virtual lock to reach the 30-homer threshold in future years. He’s established himself as an elite fantasy option at an extremely thin position over the last four seasons and should be one of the first catchers off the board in drafts next spring. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:05 pm
  • Mookie Betts (foot) not in lineup Wednesday
    Mookie Betts (foot) is not in the Red Sox starting lineup Wednesday against the Giants.

    Advice: An MRI taken Monday on Betts' ailing left foot showed only inflammation, but he has some lingering discomfort and could be limited over what remains of the regular season. Red Sox manager Alex Cora told reporters he expects Betts to be out again Thursday, but could return on Friday as a designated hitter against the Rays. Brock Holt is playing right field on Wednesday.

  • Gleyber Torres hits three-run homer in win
    Gleyber Torres went 2-for-4 and hit a three-run homer in the Yankees' 8-0 shutout of the Angels on Tuesday.

    Advice: The homer was Torres's 38th. He has 10 games left to get to 40, which would be an awfully impressive feat for a 22-year-old middle infielder. If only the Yankees had another Orioles series on the schedule, he'd be a lock. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:31 pm

    Rays manager Kevin Cash indicated Tuesday that Yonny Chirinos (finger) could be activated by the end of this week.

    Advice: Chirinos tossed another successful bullpen session on Tuesday afternoon, after throwing a simulated game last week. The 25-year-old has been on the injured list since August 5 with inflammation in the middle finger on his right hand and it's not clear whether he will be used as a starter or reliever when he returns.

  • MRI shows inflammation in Mookie Betts' foot
    An MRI taken Monday on Mookie Betts' ailing left foot showed only inflammation.

    Advice: That's great news, but Betts is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Giants and it's unclear whether he will play again this season.

    Advice: The Cubs shouldn't be thinking about a postseason rotation just yet, but if they do advance to the NLDS, one wonders if Hamels would make the roster. His ERA stood at 2.84 on Aug. 3, but he's a complete mess right now, having given up 27 earned runs and 21 walks over 33 innings in his last eight starts. He's in line to face the Cardinals next.

  • VanMeter hits eighth homer against D'backs
    Josh VanMeter hit his eighth home run of the season in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Diamondbacks starter Zac Gallen tried to come inside on VanMeter with a breaking ball in the fourth inning but the 24-year-old got under it and lifted it into the stands in right field for a solo shot. The homer was his eighth this year and his second in his last three games. VanMeter also has eight steals, and although time is running out he's got a shot at hitting double digits in both categories, which would be a nice feather in his rookie-year cap. VanMeter is hitting .243/.329/.427 in 86 games overall. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:17 pm

  • Kolten Wong has three-hit night
    Kolten Wong went 3-for-4 with a two-run single and two runs scored in Friday’s blowout win over the Brewers.

    Advice: All three of his hits were singles, though two of them were via bunts. Wong has been locked in since the All-Star break, hitting a cool .356 over 56 games. He hasn’t shown much category ability in recent years, but his fantasy stock is rising due to the boost in speed this year (22-for-24 stolen bases) as well as his place in the lineup.

    Advice: VanMeter took Diamondbacks' starter Mike Leake deep with a towering two-run blast to right field in the fifth inning. It was his seventh round-tripper of the season and the first time he's left the yard since August 31. The versatile 24-year-old outfielder is hitting .247/.336/.424 with 31 runs scored, seven homers, 22 RBI and eight stolen bases across 226 major-league plate appearances. He appears destined to be an intriguing late-round sleeper candidate in deeper fantasy formats next spring. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:34 pm

    Bo Bichette connected for his first career-walk off-homer as part of a 6-5 win over the Yankees in 12 innings on Friday.

    Advice: Bichette led off the 12th by taking Tyler Lyons deep, making him the youngest player in franchise history to hit a walk-off homer. He finished the night 3-for-5 with a walk and two runs scored. While Bichette has been a little quiet this month, the Blue Jays have to be thrilled with what they’ve seen from him so far. He’s batting .313/.353/.592 with 11 home runs, 18 RBI, four steals, and 29 runs scored over 41 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:50 pm

  • Arenado wallops 40th homer in win over Padres
    Nolan Arenado went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and a pair of walks in the Rockies’ win over the Padres on Friday.

    Advice: Arenado reached base safely in four of his five plate appearances. He also crushed a two-run shot -- his 40th round-tripper of the season -- off Padres’ lefty Joey Lucchesi in the opening frame. The 28-year-old fantasy superstar has eclipsed the lofty 40-homer plateau for the third time in his illustrious career. He’s tallied at least 37 long balls in five consecutive seasons. He owns a surreal .315/.380/.595 triple-slash line with 97 runs scored, 40 home runs, 114 RBI and two stolen bases across 616 plate appearances this season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:40 pm
  • Lux slugs second MLB homer in win over NYM
    Gavin Lux went 2-for-3 with his second major league homer in Friday’s win over the Mets.

    Advice: Lux provided the big blow of the game with a three-run blast off Noah Syndergaard in a four-run fourth inning for Los Angeles. It was originally ruled as a triple before being confirmed as a home run on replay review. Boosted by a couple of big games, the rookie infielder is 9-for-33 (.273) with two homers, two doubles, and five RBI through his first 10 games in the majors. He continues to see opportunities against right-handed pitching, which puts him on the mixed league map. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:06 pm

  • Willson Contreras blasts two homers in rout
    Willson Contreras went 3-for-4 and blasted a pair of home runs on Friday as the Cubs routed the Pirates 17-8.

    Advice: Contreras swatted a solo homer off of Steven Brault in the opening inning -- one of three long balls hit during the frame. He then tagged the southpaw again in the third, increasing the Cubs' edge to 6-4. The hard-hitting backstop is now slashing .283/.372/.560 with 23 home runs and 62 RBI on the season.

  • Nick Senzel to get second opinion on Monday
    Nick Senzel (shoulder) will get a second opinion from Dr. Neal ElAttrache on Monday in Los Angeles.

    Advice: The rookie center fielder has already been ruled out for the remainder of the 2019 season, this meeting is only to determine the course of action on how and when to proceed. The Reds should have some sort of timeline on his recovery after Monday's evaluation. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:16 pm

  • Nick Senzel (torn labrum) out for 2019 season
    Nick Senzel will miss the remainder of the 2019 season after being diagnosed with a torn labrum in his right shoulder.

    Advice: It's a tough way for the 24-year-old's rookie campaign to come to an end. He suffered the injury while making a diving catch in center field on August 31, though he played through the injury until September 7. Senzel finishes his rookie season hitting .256/.315/.427 with 12 long balls, 42 RBI and 14 stolen bases. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:00 pm

  • Kolten Wong homers, doubles in victory
    Kolten Wong homered, doubled, walked and stole two bases Thursday as the Cardinals beat the Rockies 10-3.

    Advice: Wong's fantasy potential has long been limited by his position at the bottom of the Cardinals' order (as well as his frequent platoon status), but he convinced the team to give him a shot in the second spot in the lineup three weeks ago and has hit .333 with five steals in 19 games since. He's 22-for-24 stealing bases this season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:28 pm

  • Willson Contreras out of Cubs' lineup Thurs.
    Willson Contreras is not in the Cubs' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon in San Diego.

    Advice: Contreras went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in the Cubs' shutout loss to the Padres on Wednesday night, and he'll take a mental and physical break during Thursday's series finale. Victor Caratini is starting at catcher and batting fifth versus San Diego right-hander Dinelson Lamet. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:52 am
  • Hamels serves up solo homer in loss to Padres
    Cole Hamels allowed one run over 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Padres on Wednesday.

    Advice: Hamels was simply outdueled by electrifying Padres' rookie Chris Paddack in a tough-luck loss. He struck out six batters and also issued four walks. A solo homer by Manuel Margot in the fifth inning was the lone tally against him in this one. The 35-year-old veteran lefty owns a 3.89 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 131/51 K/BB ratio across 134 1/3 innings (25 starts). He’ll square off against the Reds at home on Monday.

  • Contreras whiffs twice in loss to Padres
    Willson Contreras went 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts in the Cubs' shutout loss to the Padres on Wednesday.

    Advice: It was a night to forget for the entire Cubs offense, which managed only three hits combined in a losing effort. The 27-year-old backstop remains one of the elite catchers in the fantasy landscape, hitting .277/.366/.538 with 49 runs scored, 21 home runs, 60 RBI and one stolen base in 361 plate appearances.
