  • 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. 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. Yesterday, 10:42 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. 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. 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. 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. Yesterday, 9:11 pm
  • Ross Stripling earns save Monday vs. Bucs
    Ross Stripling got his second save of the season Monday night against the Pirates.

    Advice: Kenley Jansen worked the 10th inning in this one, so Stripling got the assignment in the bottom of the 12th. He gave up a one-out single to Andrew McCutchen and issued an intentional walk to Josh Bell but ultimately induced a game-ending lineout from Max Moroff. Stripling owns a decent 3.41 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 59/14 K/BB ratio in 58 innings this season out of the Los Angeles bullpen. He'll continue to work primarily in a middle-relief role. Yesterday, 8:53 pm
  • Diaz converts 28th save of season
    Edwin Diaz tossed a scoreless ninth inning Monday against the Braves for his 28th save of the season.

    Advice: Diaz gave up a leadoff single to Ender Inciarte, but he was eventually thrown out stealing. The hard-throwing right-hander ended up throwing just five pitches in the frame. Diaz has looked rather shaky recently, but he has converted each of his last nine save chances. Yesterday, 8:23 pm
  • Clevinger allows four runs in no-decision
    Mike Clevinger gave up four earned runs over 4 1/3 innings Monday in a no-decision versus the Red Sox.

    Advice: Cleveland eventually won the game in the bottom of the ninth, with the decision going to closer Cody Allen. Clevinger was pitching on an odd schedule after last Wednesday's rainout and did not not look sharp, yielding four walks and four hits -- including two home runs. He stands 6-5 on the year with an up-and-down 3.97 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and 99/48 K/BB ratio over 88 1/3 frames. Up next is a start at home against the Royals. Yesterday, 8:02 pm
  • Andrew Miller pulled after re-injuring knee
    Andrew Miller was pulled from an appearance versus the Red Sox on Monday after aggravating the patella tendinitis in his right knee.

    Advice: Miller made only one rehab appearance and was making just his second appearance since being activated from the disabled list. Clearly, he wasn't totally over the ailment and a trip back to the DL would seem to be possible, if not likely. Yesterday, 7:24 pm
    4:10 pm vs Bos
  • 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. Yesterday, 7:23 pm
  • Chris Smith falls to 0-3 on Monday vs. O's
    Chris Smith surrendered five runs -- four earned -- over 4 1/3 innings Monday as the Athletics fell to the Orioles.

    Advice: Smith issued two walks and gave up six hits, including a solo homer to Adam Jones in the bottom of the fourth inning and a three-run blast to Jonathan Schoop in the bottom of the fifth. The 36-year-old right-hander is now 0-3 with a 5.56 ERA in 43 2/3 innings with Oakland. He hasn't earned a win at the MLB level since way back in 2008 with the Red Sox. Yesterday, 7:20 pm
  • Andrew Miller exits appearance due to injury
    Andrew Miller departed an appearance Monday against the Red Sox with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Miller threw seven pitches -- with only two of them going for strikes -- before walking off the mound and into the clubhouse. His velocity ranged from 88-92 mph. It was his second appearance since returning from tendinitis in his right knee, but it's unclear if that's what he's dealing with again. The Indians should have an update soon. Yesterday, 6:48 pm
    4:10 pm vs Bos
  • Minaya earns another save Monday vs. MIN
    Juan Minaya worked a 1-2-3 ninth inning for his third save of the season Monday against the Twins.

    Advice: Minaya induced a groundout from Byron Buxton, struck out Eduardo Escobar, and got Ehire Adrianza to pop out, sealing a 7-6 victory for the White Sox in the first half of a split doubleheader versus the visiting Twins. Minaya has earned three saves in four days and looks to be manager Rick Renteria's preferred ninth-inning option for the stretch run. Yesterday, 5:49 pm
  • Suter (shoulder) to throw off mound Wednesday
    Brent Suter (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Wednesday.

    Advice: Suter has missed the last week of action with a strained left rotator cuff. He'll need to progress to facing hitters and will probably need a rehab start before rejoining the Brew Crew. Yesterday, 5:05 pm
    10-Day DL
    7:15 pm @SF
  • 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. Yesterday, 4:27 pm
    60-Day DL
    4:10 pm vs Ari
  • Jose Alvarez recalled from Triple-A
    Angels recalled LHP Jose Alvarez from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Alvarez holds a 4.50 ERA and 33/10 K/BB ratio over 36 innings with the big club this season. He'll operate in middle relief. Yesterday, 4:19 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. Yesterday, 4:17 pm
    10-Day DL
    7:08 pm vs Tex
  • J.C. Ramirez (elbow) lands on disabled list
    Angels placed RHP J.C. Ramirez on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to August 20, with a right elbow strain.

    Advice: The Halos initially referred to Ramirez's injury as right forearm irritation, but after an MRI on Monday they're now saying it's his elbow. It's unclear at this point how long Ramirez will be sidelined. The Angels could give Troy Scribner another shot in the rotation or might potentially bring Jesse Chavez back in from the bullpen. Yesterday, 4:15 pm
    10-Day DL
    7:08 pm vs Tex
  • 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. Yesterday, 3:15 pm
    Not Active
    7:15 pm @SF
  • Nick Gardewine called up from Double-A
    Rangers purchased the contract of RHP Nick Gardewine from Double-A Frisco.

    Advice: Gardewine, 24, holds a 2.41 ERA and 50/12 K/BB ratio over 33 2/3 innings for Frisco this season. He'll be making his major league debut when he gets into a game. Yesterday, 3:08 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. 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. Yesterday, 1:43 pm
    Not Active
    4:35 pm vs Sea
  • Dan Winkler activated from disabled list
    Braves activated RHP Dan Winkler from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Winkler barely pitched the last three years due to Tommy John surgery and then a fractured elbow, but he made 14 rehab appearances without any issues and is ready to go. He was a Rule 5 pick in December of 2014 and even if he stays on the Braves' roster for the rest of this season will have to be on the roster for a couple weeks next year to fulfill the Rule 5 requirement. Yesterday, 1:41 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. Yesterday, 1:14 pm
    4:10 pm vs Ari
  • Diamondbacks call up RHP Koch
    Diamondbacks recalled RHP Matt Koch from Triple-A Reno.

    Advice: Koch entered the year as the seventh or eighth starter on Arizona's depth chart, but he got hurt in his first very first Triple-A outing and he's struggled mightily since returning, giving up 37 runs over 33 innings for Reno. He's just up to serve as a fresh arm for the pen, and he'll probably head right back to Triple-A soon. Yesterday, 12:33 pm
  • 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. Yesterday, 12:22 pm
    60-Day DL
    4:10 pm vs Ari
  • 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. Yesterday, 9:34 am
  • Juan Minaya narrowly escapes with save Sunday
    Juan Minaya narrowly escaped with his second save of the season on Sunday, allowing a pair of runs in the ninth inning against the Rangers.

    Advice: Aaron Bummer actually started the ninth inning, but after walking Drew Robinson on four pitches it was Minaya who was summoned from the bullpen. Minaya also walked his first hitter on four pitches, but bounced back to get Shin-Soo Choo to bounce into a double play. That would prove to be huge, as Rougned Odor followed with a two-run homer. Minaya looks to be the man to own in the White Sox bullpen and should have mixed league relevancy for as long as he's the man in the ninth inning. Sunday, 3:31 pm
  • J.C. Ramirez (forearm) won't make next start
    J.C. Ramirez (forearm) is not expected to make his next scheduled start.

    Advice: Ramirez will undergo an MRI on Monday but is unlikely to start this week even if it comes back clean. He's probably headed to the disabled list after hurting his forearm Saturday. It's unclear who might take his spot in the rotation. Sunday, 9:07 am
    10-Day DL
    7:08 pm vs Tex
  • 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. Sunday, 5:40 am
    4:10 pm vs Ari
  • J.C. Ramirez exits with forearm irritation
    J.C. Ramirez left Saturday's start against the Orioles with right forearm irritation.

    Advice: Ramirez injured himself while covering first base in the sixth inning. He scattered five hits and one run over 5 1/3 innings before exiting. Ramirez is scheduled for an MRI on Monday. A DL stint could be forthcoming. Saturday, 7:50 pm
    10-Day DL
    7:08 pm vs Tex
  • 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. Saturday, 3:58 pm
  • Minaya earns a save with scoreless ninth
    Juan Minaya earned the first post-firesale save for the White Sox by throwing a scoreless ninth inning versus the Rangers on Friday.

    Advice: He walked lead-off batter Joey Gallo but retired the next three batters without any drama. The White Sox traded off ace relievers David Robertson, Tommy Kahnle, Anthony Swarzak and Tyler Clippard in recent weeks, leaving the bullpen bereft of any obvious closing candidates. Minaya looks to get the first crack at taking over the ninth inning and makes for a good pick-up in fantasy leagues. He has a 4.50 ERA with 39 strikeouts and 14 walks (and five homers) in 30 innings. Friday, 10:01 pm
  • Andrew Miller activated from disabled list
    Indians activated LHP Andrew Miller from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: Miller has missed nearly all of August with patella tendinitis in his right knee, but he made a rehab appearance with no issues and is ready to go. He'll return to a setup role ahead of Cody Allen. Friday, 2:43 pm
    4:10 pm vs Bos
  • 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. 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. 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. Thursday, 10:15 pm
  • Miller (knee) impresses in first rehab outing
    Andrew Miller (knee) tossed a scoreless inning Wednesday in a rehab appearance for Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: Miller fanned two hitters while throwing 10 of his 12 pitches for strikes. The left-hander didn't show any signs of rust in his first and perhaps only rehab outing and could be back in the Indians' pen as soon as this weekend. Wednesday, 9:05 pm
    4:10 pm vs Bos
  • 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. Wednesday, 8:02 pm
    60-Day DL
    4:10 pm vs Ari
  • Edwin Diaz pulled in ninth inning Wednesday
    Edwin Diaz collapsed Wednesday against the Orioles, yielding two runs and three walks before being lifted with two outs in the ninth inning.

    Advice: Just 16 of the right-hander’s 37 pitches went for strikes. Manager Scott Servais decided he’d seen enough after Diaz hit Mark Trumbo with the bases loaded to bring in another run. Mark Rzepczynski came in to record the final out, striking out Chris Davis to preserve the Mariners’ 7-6 victory while earning his first save of the season. Diaz lost his closer’s job for a stretch earlier this year and could be headed that way again, particularly with David Phelps nearing a return from the disabled list. Wednesday, 5:11 pm
  • Edwin Diaz slams door for his 26th save
    Edwin Diaz worked a perfect ninth inning for his 26th save of the season on Tuesday against the Orioles.

    Advice: Diaz threw eight of his 10 pitches in the tidy effort, bouncing back nicely after coughing up three earned runs and three walks in a non-save situation last time out against the Halos. He has converted eight consecutive save chances since his last blown opportunity July 22 against the Yankees. Wednesday, 12:12 am
  • Chris Smith is so-so in no-decision at home
    Chris Smith allowed three earned runs, three hits and a walk with three strikeouts over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Royals on Tuesday.

    Advice: Smith found the strike zone with just 54 of his 96 pitches. He has made seven starts, but he continues to search for that first elusive win. In fact, he has just one victory in the majors and that occurred way back on June 24, 2008 in his second-ever appearance in the majors as a member of the Red Sox. His next chance at win will come Monday in Baltimore. Tuesday, 10:56 pm
  • White Sox closer situation called 'fluid'
    White Sox manager Rick Renteria said Tuesday that the team's closer situation is "fluid."

    Advice: Tyler Clippard handled Chicago's last save opportunity, but he was traded to the Astros on Sunday. And of course David Robertson, Tommy Kahnle, and Anthony Swarzak were all dealt away last month. Juan Minaya and Jake Petricka would now appear to be the best candidates for ninth-inning duties on the south side of Chicago, but it's a difficult guessing game. Tuesday, 4:57 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. Tuesday, 3:26 pm
    60-Day DL
    4:10 pm vs Ari
  • 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. Monday, 1:30 pm
    60-Day DL
    4:10 pm vs Ari
  • Miller (knee) to make rehab appearance Wed.
    Andrew Miller (knee) will make a minor league rehab appearance on Wednesday.

    Advice: Miller threw his second bullpen session in three days on Sunday and is now ready to test himself in game action. The southpaw should only need one appearance before being activated. The relief ace has been out since the start of August with patella tendinitis in his right knee. Monday, 7:13 am
    4:10 pm vs Bos
  • 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. 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. Aug 13, 1:19 pm
  • Brent Suter to DL with strained rotator cuff
    Brewers placed LHP Brent Suter on the 10-day disabled list with a left rotator cuff strain.

    Advice: Suter suffered the injury in an ugly outing Saturday night against the Reds. He got off to a promising start after joining the Brewers' rotation in early July, but the 27-year-old left-hander has struggled lately and there is no timetable for his return from this shoulder issue. Aug 13, 9:10 am
    10-Day DL
    7:15 pm @SF
  • Andrew Miller (knee) throws bullpen session
    Andrew Miller (knee) threw another bullpen session on Sunday morning.

    Advice: Miller appears to be recovered from his right knee tendinitis, but the Indians might ask him to make one minor league rehab appearance before they bring him back from the disabled list. The left-hander owns a dominant 1.67 ERA, 0.76 WHIP, and 78/15 K/BB ratio through 54 innings this season. Aug 13, 8:49 am
    4:10 pm vs Bos
  • J.C. Ramirez so-so in Saturday's no-decision
    J.C. Ramirez allowed three earned runs, seven hits and three walks with four strikeouts across five innings in a no-decision Saturday in Seattle.

    Advice: Ramirez threw just 56 of his 96 pitches for strikes. He has actually been more successful on the road this season than at home, posting a 7-4 record with a 3.64 ERA in 13 appearances (11 starts) as opposed to 3-6 with a 4.80 ERA in 13 appearances (12 starts) at the Big A. The good news is that his next scheduled start will come on the road next Saturday in Baltimore. Aug 13, 12:08 am
    10-Day DL
    7:08 pm vs Tex
  • Suter serves up three homers against Reds
    Brent Suter allowed five runs, including three home runs, over five innings in a no-decision Saturday against the Reds.

    Advice: Suter walked four but only gave up four hits; the problem, then, is that three left the playing field. The shine has worn off the 27-year-old southpaw, as expected -- not many guys get by in the majors with Suter's velocity -- in recent starts, as he's now allowed 13 runs in his last 14 1/3 innings. Suter will carry a 3.79 ERA and 1.28 WHIP into another difficult outing Saturday against the Rockies in Colorado. Aug 12, 9:35 pm
    10-Day DL
    7:15 pm @SF
  • Clevinger fans nine in seven shutout frames
    Mike Clevinger notched nine strikeouts while hurling seven shutout innings to earn a 3-0 victory over the Rays on Saturday.

    Advice: He gave up just four base hits and one walk. The only time he even ran into trouble was the fifth inning when Brad Miller led off with a double and was then thrown out trying to steal third. Clevinger is now 6-4 with a 3.65 ERA. He has made 15 starts and two relief appearances and has 90 strikeouts in 81 1/3 innings. Aug 12, 6:44 pm
  • 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. Aug 12, 4:11 pm
    10-Day DL
    7:08 pm vs Tex
