• Back in lineup Friday
    Arraez (ankle) is starting at second base and batting leadoff Friday versus the Brewers in his return to the lineup.

    Advice: He missed the last two games with a sprained left ankle but is feeling well enough to give it a go in this one following the Marlins' off day Thursday. Arraez and his teammates will be tasked with solving Corbin Burnes on Friday. Rotowire.com 10 minutes ago

  • Jettisoned from 40-man roster
    Kelley was designated for assignment Friday, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    Advice: The transaction clears a spot on the 40-man roster for top prospect Junior Caminero. Kelley, 30, holds a 5.87 ERA in 10 appearances with the Rays this season. Rotowire.com 28 minutes ago

  • Placed on IL
    The Rays placed Raley on the 10-day injured list Friday with a cervical strain, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    Advice: Raley hasn't started a game since colliding with a staff member during batting practice last Saturday, and he reported numbness in his arm following a pinch hit appearance Wednesday. Raley's move to the injured list is retroactive to Thursday, so he will still be eligible to return for the final game of the season Oct. 1, but there's a chance the Rays keep him on the shelf until the postseason. Top prospect Junior Caminero was selected from Double-A Montgomery to fill Raley's spot on the active roster. Rotowire.com 28 minutes ago

  • Not starting Friday
    Fraley isn't in the Reds' lineup Friday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Fraley will get a day off Friday after going 1-for-9 with two walks during the Reds' previous series with the Twins. Fraley's absence will allow Christian Encarnacion-Strand to step in as the DH while batting fourth. Rotowire.com Today, 10:37 am

  • Sitting Friday
    Stephenson isn't in the Reds' lineup Friday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Stephenson is just 2-for-22 across his last six games, and his offensive woes will now cause him to miss his second start in a row. Luke Maile will start behind the plate Friday and bat ninth. Rotowire.com Today, 10:35 am
  • Homers in loss
    Pederson went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's 7-2 loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Pederson has warmed up a bit, going 5-for-18 (.278) with two homers over his last five games. The rest of the Giants didn't follow -- his blast was one of three hits for them in Thursday's loss. The designated hitter is at a .245/.353/.434 slash line with 15 long balls, 51 RBI and 57 runs scored across 113 contests this season. Rotowire.com Today, 10:23 am
  • Handed first loss
    Brebbia (3-1) allowed a run on one hit and struck out one over two-thirds of an inning to take the loss Thursday versus the Dodgers.

    Advice: Brebbia relieved starter Kyle Harrison with one out in the sixth inning. Will Smith tagged Brebbia for a triple and J.D. Martinez added a sacrifice fly to put the Dodgers ahead for good. Brebbia has allowed four runs (three earned) over 5.2 innings in September -- he's struggled since returning from a Grade 2 lat strain. The right-hander is at a 3.41 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 43:11 K:BB with six holds and a blown save over 34.1 innings this year. Rotowire.com Today, 10:20 am
  • Nabs steal Thursday
    Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a walk, one RBI and a stolen base in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Orioles.

    Advice: Ramirez has multiple hits in seven of his last 14 games, going 20-for-56 (.357) in that span. He's added three home runs and five steals in that span as he continues to be a true five-category factor in fantasy. The third baseman is slashing .279/.354/.481 with 24 homers, 27 thefts, 79 RBI and 84 runs scored across 148 games this season, and it's fair to say that's a bit of a down year for the 31-year-old.

  • Reaches 10-steal mark
    Naylor went 0-for-1 with a walk, one RBI, a stolen base and one run scored in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Orioles.

    Advice: Naylor was hit by a pitch and provided his RBI with a sacrifice fly. He's hitting .339 (21-for-62) over 17 games in September, a span that's also seen him accumulate four of his 10 steals this season. Overall, the first baseman is at a .310/.352/.500 slash line with 17 home runs, 94 RBI and 50 runs scored through 113 contests. Rotowire.com Today, 10:14 am
