  • Starlin Castro leaves game with wrist injury
    Starlin Castro was removed from the resumption of Sunday's game against the Orioles after injuring his wrist.

    Advice: Nationals' manager Dave Martinez said Castro hurt his wrist in a diving play at second base. He's set to undergo X-rays to see if there's any structural damage. It would be surprising to see him in the lineup for Friday's game, and fantasy players may want to bench him for the weekend if they have any viable alternatives. Rotoworld.com 24 minutes ago

  • Mariners place Patrick Wisdom on release waivers
    Mariners released INF Patrick Wisdom.

    Advice: The Mariners designated Wisdom for assignment earlier in the week when claiming Brady Lail off of waivers, but now he's been given his unconditional release. The 28-year-old is a career .224/.306/.408 hitter with four homers and 11 RBI in 86 plate appearances at the big league level. Rotoworld.com 27 minutes ago

  • Mariners option Taylor Guilbeau to alternate site
    Mariners optioned LHP Taylor Guilbeau to their alternate training site.

    Advice: The 27-year-old southpaw has appeared in five games for the Mariners this season, posting a 1.69 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and 2/3 K/BB ratio across 5 1/3 innings. The recently-claimed Brady Lail is taking his place in the Mariners' bullpen for the time being. Rotoworld.com 30 minutes ago
  • Mariners option Joe Hudson to alternate site
    Mariners optioned C Joe Hudson to their alternate training site.

    Advice: The 29-year-old backstop struggled in his time with the big league club, slashing .125/.222/.125 with a 5/2 K/BB ratio in 19 plate appearances. He'll continue to function as additional catching depth and may get another chance with the M's before the end of the season. Rotoworld.com 32 minutes ago
     
  • Mariners recall Joseph Odom from alternate site
    Mariners recalled C Joseph Odom from their alternate training site.

    Advice: The 28-year-old will add depth behind the plate for the Mariners. He has appeared in two games this season, going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts and a walk in five plate appearances. Rotoworld.com 35 minutes ago

  • Tyler Chatwood scratched with back tightness
    Tyler Chatwood was scratched from Friday's scheduled start against the Brewers due to mid-back tightness.

    Advice: Alec Mills will move up a day to start in Chatwood's place, with Saturday's starter currently TBD. Whether Chatwood could possibly need an injured list stint or just needs to be pushed back a few days isn't clear at this point. Rotoworld.com 57 minutes ago

  • Austin Slater diagnosed with flexor strain
    Austin Slater has been diagnosed with a flexor strain in his right arm.

    Advice: The Giants are calling him day-to-day for the time being. It wouldn't seem to be an injury that would allow him to play the outfield anytime soon, though, so Slater might be limited to designated hitter duty for a while. He's been a bright spot for the Giants this season with a 1.076 OPS, three home runs and five stolen bases. Rotoworld.com 59 minutes ago

  • Holaday drives in two as Orioles hold off Nats
    Bryan Holaday went 2-for-4 and drove in two runs -- one on Sunday and one on Friday -- leading the Orioles to a 6-2 victory over the Nationals in the conclusion of Sunday's suspended game.

    Advice: Holaday contributed a run-scoring single during the fifth inning on Sunday, then tacked on another RBI knock in the sixth inning on Friday -- which would be the only run scored after game resumed in the sixth inning. The veteran backstop is off to a terrific start in his limited time, hitting .429 (3-for-7) with three RBI. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:36 pm
     
  • Anthony Santander drives in two as O's top Nats
    Anthony Santander went 1-for-3 and drove in two runs on Friday as the Orioles topped the Nationals in the resumption of Sunday's contest.

    Advice: Santander contributed a two-run single to cap off the Orioles' five-run rally in the fifth inning. He has been an extremely capable run producer in the middle of the Orioles' lineup this season, slashing .263/.291/.539 with four homers and 21 RBI. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:36 pm
     
  • Starlin Castro goes deep in loss to Orioles
    Starlin Castro went 1-for-3 and blasted a two-run homer on Sunday in a loss to the Orioles that was completed on Friday afternoon.

    Advice: Castro's two-run shot off of Shawn Armstrong in the fifth inning would be the Nationals' only scoring in the contest. The 30-year-old -- who has settled into the third slot in the Nationals' lineup -- is now hitting .286/.318/.508 with three homers and six RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:36 pm

  • Hanser Alberto plates two runs in win over Nats
    Hanser Alberto went 2-for-5 with a double and drove in a pair of runs on Sunday, helping to lead the Orioles past the Nationals in their game that was finished on Thursday.

    Advice: Alberto delivered a two-run double as part of a five-run uprising in the fifth inning off of Stephen Strasburg. He has been sizzling at the plate to begin the 2020 season, slashing a robust .354/.384/.549 to go along with two homers, 11 RBI and a stolen base. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:36 pm
    3:59 pm vs Was
     
  • Braun (finger) to return to lineup Sat. or Sun.
    Ryan Braun (finger) is expected to be back in the Brewers' lineup in the field on Saturday or Sunday.

    Advice: Braun served as the team's designated hitter in his first two games back from the injured list but has now been benched for two straight. That was apparently the plan, as they wanted to give him a little more rest for his surgically-repaired right index finger. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:34 pm
     
  • Asher Wojciechowski pitches well against Nationals
    Asher Wojciechowski pitched well in Sunday's start against the Nationals, allowing three hits over 3 2/3 innings of shutout baseball.

    Advice: The right-hander walked two and struck out four in the no-decision. Not bad work for someone who was pitching on three-days rest. Wojciechowski threw 65 pitches in the ballgame, 39 of them for strikes. He'll carry a 3.12 ERA and 1.21 WHIP into another matchup against the Nationals on Saturday in Baltimore.

  • Thairo Estrada recalled by Yankees
    Yankees recalled INF Thairo Estrada from their alternate training site.

    Advice: Estrada has had multiple stints with the big club this season but hasn't played much. That doesn't figure to change this time around. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:30 pm

  • Aaron Judge lands on injured list with calf strain
    Yankees placed OF Aaron Judge on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to August 12, with a right calf strain.

    Advice: Manager Aaron Boone says the strain is Grade 1 “or even less than that” and that the club expects Judge's stay on the IL to be a short one. It's obviously still a bummer even if it's a minimum IL stint as it looks like it will be, as Judge is off to an MVP-level start to the season. Mike Tauchman is in right field and Clint Frazier is at designated hitter on Friday.

  • Josh Donaldson still has some soreness in calf
    Twins president of baseball operations Derek Falvey said Friday that Josh Donaldson (calf) "had a good day" in rehabbing Wednesday but is still feeling some soreness.

    Advice: Donaldson has already missed a week and a half with a right calf strain and Falvey didn't want to put a timetable on the third baseman's return. It certainly doesn't seem imminent. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:12 pm

  • Aaron Judge (lower body) held out again Friday
    Aaron Judge (lower body) remained out of the Yankees' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Judge didn't play Wednesday due to lower body tightness and apparently the off day Thursday wasn't enough to get him over the hump. Consider him day-to-day for the time being. Mike Tauchman is in right field and Clint Frazier is at designated hitter. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:01 pm

  • Austin Slater (elbow) out again Friday
    Austin Slater (elbow) remained out of the Giants' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Slater hasn't played since developing soreness in his right elbow on Tuesday. The Giants have Hunter Pence in right field and Pablo Sandoval at designated hitter. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:36 pm

  • Anthony Santander homers, doubles for Orioles
    Anthony Santander homered and doubled for the Orioles in Wednesday's win over the Phillies.

    Advice: Santander was so late to report this summer that the Orioles didn't think he'd be ready for Opening Day, but he's gone on to start all 17 games for the club and hit .265 with four homers, six doubles and 16 RBI to date. That'll play nicely in mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:38 pm
     
  • Austin Slater unavailable due to sore right elbow
    Austin Slater was unavailable to play Wednesday due to sore right elbow.

    Advice: Slater first felt the soreness during Tuesday's game and he was scratched Wednesday after he was unable to get loose. He'll be re-evaluated when the Giants return home this weekend. Slater has been a bright spot in the early going with a 1.076 OPS, three home runs and five stolen bases. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:09 pm

  • Austin Slater scratched from lineup
    Austin Slater was a late scratch from the Giants' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: The team has not yet divulged the reason, but they should after the game. Hunter Pence will go from designated hitter to right field and Wilmer Flores will enter the lineup as the DH. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:27 pm

  • Aaron Judge sitting out with lower body tightness
    Aaron Judge is not in the Yankees' lineup Wednesday because of lower body tightness.

    Advice: When asked to specify which part of Judge's body is tight, Boone mentioned virtually every lower body part. The skipper indicated that it's just wear and tear from Judge playing every day and also recently playing on the turf at Tropicana Field. Boone hopes that Judge is ready to play Friday after Thursday's off day, but he couldn't guarantee it. Clint Frazier is in right field Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:30 pm

  • Aaron Judge slugs ninth homer before early exit
    Aaron Judge was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the sixth Tuesday after hitting his ninth homer and walking against the Braves.

    Advice: Manager Aaron Boone said afterwards that he was just trying to sneak Judge some extra rest in a game the Yankees were leading 8-3. "Coming off of four days on the turf and with a little bit of leverage there, just trying to be smart with these guys," Boone said. "Judge hasn't really had that day down. I gave him the DH day (on Aug. 5) and I just want to make sure we're being smart with everyone." Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:44 pm

  • Brewers activate Ryan Braun off the injured list
    Brewers activated OF/1B Ryan Braun from the 10-day injured list.

    Advice: Braun required a minor surgical procedure for an infection in his right index finger earlier this month, but he's feeling better now. The Brewers used Keston Hiura in the DH spot on Monday with Luis Urias back in the fold, but odds are Braun will see plenty of at-bats there. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:22 pm
     
  • Austin Slater has a jack and a bag in loss Monday
    Austin Slater clubbed his third home run of the season on Monday as the Giants fell to the Astros in Houston.

    Advice: Slater also swiped a bag in this one -- his fourth of the season. He also singled in the game, finishing the night 2-for-3. The 27-year-old has been seeing regular playing time in right field for the Giants and is slashing a mighty impressive .333/.450/.667 to go along with his three taters, four RBI and four swipes. That type of power and speed combination doesn't grow on trees and is certainly valuable in all mixed leagues. He's one of only five players in all of baseball with at least three homers and three stolen bases thus far, joining Fernando Tatis Jr., Trent Grisham, Dylan Moore and Trevor Story.

  • Braun (finger) playing intrasquad game on Monday
    Ryan Braun (finger) will get at-bats in an intrasquad game Monday at the Brewers' alternate training site.

    Advice: Braun appears on track to be activated sometime later this week. The veteran outfielder was placed on the injured list August 2 after requiring a minor surgical procedure for an infection in his right index finger. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:40 pm
     
  • Mariners DFA infielder Patrick Wisdom on Mon.
    Mariners designated INF Patrick Wisdom for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears out a 40-man roster spot for reliever Brady Lail, who was claimed off waivers from the White Sox on Monday. Wisdom had not appeared in a game with Seattle this season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:33 pm

    Yankees recalled INF Thairo Estrada from their alternate training site.

    Advice: Estrada was sent down in between games during Saturday's doubleheader versus the Rays but is now back to replace Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring). He'll provide infield depth. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:05 am

  • Austin Slater punishes Kershaw in Giants victory
    Austin Slater crushed a pair of solo home runs off of Clayton Kershaw on Saturday, powering the Giants to a 5-4 victory over the Dodgers.

    Advice: Slater opened the scoring in the ballgame with a solo shot to center in the third inning. He then victimized Kershaw again in the fifth inning -- again to center field. The 27-year-old had nine career home runs over 572 big league plate appearances prior to Saturday's game where he took the three-time Cy Young Award winner deep twice. Slater finished the night 2-for-5 plus a pair of strikeouts. He's off to a great start in 2020, slashing .310/.394/.586 with a pair of long balls and three RBI in his first 29 at-bats.

  • Santander slugs go-ahead homer vs. Nats
    Anthony Santander went 1-for-4 with a go-ahead three-run homer in Saturday’s 5-3 victory over the Nationals.

    Advice: The Orioles were held off the board until scoring five runs in the eighth. After Pat Valaika and Pedro Severino delivered pinch-hit blasts against Sean Doolittle, Santander took Daniel Hudson deep to put the O’s in front. After losing four straight against the Marlins, the Orioles will attempt to complete a sweep of the Nationals on Sunday. Coming off a positive COVID test during summer camp, Santander has collected three homers, 12 RBI, and 10 runs scored through 14 games so far this season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:00 pm

  • Judge has three hits, hits eighth homer of year
    Aaron Judge went 3-for-4 and hit a two-run homer in an 8-4 win over the Rays on Saturday in game one of a doubleheader. 

    Advice: Judge's homer was the eighth of the season, which leads all of baseball. It was a two-run shot off of Sean Gilmartin to extend the Yankees' lead to 7-3 in the sixth. With that homer and two more knocks, the star right fielder is now hitting .314/.364/.824. As long as he is healthy, he's one of the best hitters in this sport.  Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:53 pm

  • Braun (finger) won't be activated on Sunday
    Ryan Braun (finger) will not come off the 10-day injured list on Sunday.

    Advice: Brewers manager Craig Counsell told reporters that Braun has missed enough time that he needs to get some simulated at-bats in before he's ready to return. "We have to figure that out," Counsell said. Braun has been on the IL with an infected right index finger since the beginning of August.  Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:36 pm
     
  • Wojciechowski to start on short rest Sunday
    Asher Wojciechowski will start on three days' rest Sunday against the Nationals.

    Advice: The O's didn't have a starter lined up for the day and had recalled prospect Keegan Akin, but O's manager Brandon Hyde said Akin will be available in relief and that Wojciechowski will get the start on short rest. Of course, he threw just 67 pitches on Wednesday, going five innings before giving way to the bullpen in the second leg of a seven-inning doubleheader set, so he should be pretty rested for the tilt. The right-hander will carry a 5.40 ERA and 1.10 WHIP into the start. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:57 pm
  • Estrada recalled from Yanks' alternate site
    Yankees recalled INF Thairo Estrada from their alternate training site.

    Advice: Estrada was just sent out on Thursday but Kyle Higashioka's oblique injury opened a roster spot. Estrada has two hits in his only two plate appearances with the big club this year. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:39 am

  • Braun (finger) takes batting practice Friday
    Ryan Braun (finger) took batting practice at Miller Park on Friday.

    Advice: Braun is on the injured list with an infected right index finger, but the fact that he's comfortable taking batting practice bodes well for a minimum stay on the shelf. He can return as early as Sunday, and with the implementation of the designated hitter in the National League the team could easily bring him back and keep him out of the field until he feels ready to do more than hit. In four games before the injury the 36-year-old was 3-for-13 with a double and two RBI. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:05 am
     
  • Starlin Castro collects two hits in loss to O's
    Starlin Castro went 2-for-3 with a double as the Nationals were shut out by Tommy Milone and the Orioles on Friday night.

    Advice: As a team, the Nationals totaled just four hits -- with Castro collecting two of them, including the only extra-base hit. He has been sizzling at the plate to begin the 2020 season, slashing .361/.378/.500, though he has yet to homer -- or steal a base -- and has only one RBI. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:19 pm

  • Twins place Josh Donaldson (calf) on 10-day IL
    Twins placed 3B Josh Donaldson on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to August 4, with a strained right calf.

    Advice: The Twins tried to take things day-to-day with their hobbled superstar, but he just wasn't recovering quickly enough -- and with the roster shortened to 28 players, they needed the extra spot. The expectation -- or hope -- is that he won't require more than a minimum stint on the injured list. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:45 pm

  • Josh Donaldson (calf) remains out of lineup
    Josh Donaldson (calf) remained out of the Twins' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He hasn't played in a week due to lingering tightness in his right calf. Ehire Adrianza is at third base in Donaldson's place. The Twins are also giving Nelson Cruz and Luis Arraez days off, with Jake Cave and Marwin Gonzalez getting starts. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:36 pm

  • Chatwood bashed for 11 hits, eight runs by Royals
    Tyler Chatwood was knocked around by the Royals on Thursday, allowing eight runs on 11 hits over 2 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Chatwood was virtually unhittable in his first two starts of the year, but there was seemingly nothing the Royals weren't pounding on Thursday. Of his 11 hits allowed, six were for extra bases, including a pair of homers. The poor outing raised his ERA and WHIP from a microscopic 0.71 and 0.789, respectively, to 5.40 and 1.40 after Thursday's start. It's hard to say which Chatwood is the real one, but like always, the answer is probably somewhere in between his two brilliant starts and whatever Thursday was. The Indians present a tough test for the 30-year-old on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:45 pm

  • Aaron Judge getting day off Thursday vs. Phillies
    Aaron Judge is not in the Yankees' starting lineup Thursday against the Phillies.

    Advice: Judge slugged his MLB-leading seventh home run of the season on Wednesday, but he'll take a little breather as the Yankees finish up a series in Philadelphia. Mike Tauchman is in right field and leading off. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:16 pm

  • Donaldson (calf) sits again Thursday vs. Pirates
    Josh Donaldson (calf) is out of the Twins' starting lineup again on Thursday.

    Advice: Donaldson has been sidelined since last Friday because of tightness in his right calf, though he has yet to be placed on the injured list and is likely to return to action sometime this weekend. Marwin Gonzalez will start at third base and bat seventh on Thursday afternoon against the Pirates and right-hander JT Brubaker. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:19 am

  • Wojciechowski allows two over five vs. Marlins
    Asher Wojciechowski struck out four over five innings of two-run baseball in a loss to the Marlins on Wednesday in game two of a doubleheader. 

    Advice: He walked one and struck out four. A pretty solid outing from Wojciechowski; albeit against a Marlins' lineup that isn't exactly loaded with stars. It's an improvement over his start against the Yankees on July 29, as he was able to keep the ball in the park this time. Again, it's much easier to do that against the Marlins than the Yankees. Schedule permitting, Wojciechowski will face the Phillies next Wednesday, and isn't a recommended streamer for that appearance.  Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:44 pm
  • Aaron Judge slugs seventh homer in loss
    Aaron Judge popped his league-leading seventh home run in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Phillies.

    Advice: It was 11-3 entering the bottom of the seventh inning (the last inning during doubleheaders now), but Judge made the Phillies sweat a little when he cut their lead to 11-7 after his bomb. Fortunately for the Phils, that wound up being the final score. Judge now has seven longballs and 17 RBI on the season, both of which lead baseball. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:25 pm

    Josh Donaldson (calf) remains out of the Twins' starting lineup on Wednesday versus the Pirates.

    Advice: Donaldson hasn't appeared in a game since making an early exit last Friday due to tightness in his right calf, but manager Rocco Baldelli told reporters that he anticipates the veteran third baseman being ready sometime during the team's current road trip.

  • M's recall Taylor Guilbeau from alternate site
    Mariners recalled LHP Taylor Guilbeau from their alternate training site.

    Advice: Guilbeau will return to the Mariners' bullpen ahead of Tuesday night's game against the Angels. The 29-year-old right-hander has allowed one run on two hits and a walk in one inning of work this season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:46 pm
  • Josh Donaldson likely to return on road trip
    Josh Donaldson (calf) is likely to return during the Twins' seven-game road trip that begins Wednesday, manager Rocco Baldelli said.
