  • Sano (shin) probably done for regular season
    Twins manager Paul Molitor confirmed Tuesday that Miguel Sano (shin) is likely done for the remainder of the regular season.

    Advice: Sano has been sidelined since August 19 with a stress reaction in his left shin and he still isn't running at 100 percent here on September 19. "We’re down to a dozen games," Molitor said Tuesday. "My biggest concern now is even if he gets to the point where we get him on the field in any capacity, how much of a challenge is it going to be for him to have any type of timing at all? With some of the pitching we have to face, that’s going to be hard to give away at-bats just to hope he’s got it." If the Twins are able to sneak into the postseason, the conversation will obviously change. Rotoworld.com 21 minutes ago

  • Hanley (biceps) expected back Wednesday
    Red Sox manager John Farrell said Hanley Ramirez (biceps) should return to the lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Ramirez is out again Tuesday versus the Orioles due to lingering biceps soreness, though he did serve as a pinch-hitter on Monday night, striking out in his first plate appearance since last Wednesday. The 33-year-old slugger owns a disappointing .238/.319/.422 batting line in 124 games this season for Boston. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:21 pm

    Dustin Pedroia (nose) is hoping to return to the Red Sox starting lineup on Wednesday.

    Advice: Pedroia is being held out of action Tuesday against the Orioles after taking a ricocheted foul ball to the face on Monday night, but he only suffered a nasal contusion and is already feeling better. Brock Holt will get the start at second base for Boston on Tuesday versus Baltimore. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:18 pm

  • Matt Harvey to remain in Mets' rotation
    Matt Harvey will remain in the Mets' rotation.

    Advice: Mets manager Terry Collins hinted late Monday that the club might consider shutting Harvey down early or moving him into a mop-up role, but it's not going to happen because there aren't any better options on the roster. Harvey allowed seven earned runs over four-plus innings Monday in a loss to the Marlins and holds a brutal 6.59 ERA in 17 total starts this season. The 28-year-old right-hander will be arbitration-eligible this winter. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:15 pm
  • Jake Arrieta (hamstring) in line for Thursday
    Jake Arrieta (hamstring) is lined up to return to the Cubs' rotation Thursday at Milwaukee.

    Advice: Arrieta made it through another bullpen session Tuesday afternoon at Tropicana Field without experiencing any discomfort in his right hamstring. If he reports back to the visitors clubhouse Wednesday feeling just as good, the Cubs should give him the official go-ahead to start Thursday's series opener at Miller Park (on a pitch count of 75-80). Arrieta has been sidelined since September 4. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:02 pm

  • Zimmermann (neck) will start Thursday
    Jordan Zimmermann (neck) will return to the Tigers' rotation Thursday versus the Twins.

    Advice: Zimmermann tossed a 40-45 pitch bullpen session on Monday and woke up Tuesday with no abnormal discomfort around his neck and spine, so he's been given the go-ahead. The 31-year-old right-hander last pitched on September 2. He holds a rough 6.18 ERA in 150 innings this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:24 pm

  • Nova (calf) on track to start Friday vs. STL
    Ivan Nova (calf) expects to make his next scheduled start Friday versus the Cardinals.

    Advice: Nova was forced from Saturday's game against the Reds due to tightness in his right calf, but he threw his normal between-starts bullpen session Tuesday without issue. The 30-year-old right-hander is 11-14 with a 4.20 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, and 127/31 K/BB ratio in 180 innings this season for Pittsburgh. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:21 pm

  • Rondon (elbow) to throw bullpen on Wed.
    Hector Rondon (elbow) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Wednesday.

    Advice: It'll be his first mound workout since he was shut down earlier this month due to bone chips in his right elbow. Rondon has struggled in the second half and is obviously no lock to make the Cubs' postseason roster. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:59 pm

  • Arrieta (hamstring) to throw another bullpen
    Jake Arrieta (hamstring) will throw another bullpen session Tuesday.

    Advice: If he responds well to the workout on Wednesday morning, Arrieta should finally be allowed to rejoin the Cubs' starting rotation sometime later this week. He has been eased along carefully in his recovery from a Grade 1 right hamstring strain. The impending free agent right-hander last pitched on September 4. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:57 pm

  • Harper (knee) participates in simulated game
    Bryce Harper (knee) participated in a simulated game Tuesday at Atlanta's SunTrust Park.

    Advice: Harper did some hitting on the field and also fielded grounders in right field as he continues to make his way back from a bone bruise in his left knee and a left calf strain. Nothing is official yet, but it sounds like he has a real chance to shake the rust with some at-bats before the postseason begins. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:51 pm

  • Dustin Pedroia (nose) not in Tuesday's lineup
    Dustin Pedroia (nose) is out of the starting lineup Tuesday against the Orioles.

    Advice: Pedroia was diagnosed with a nasal contusion after being struck in the face by foul ball on Monday. The Red Sox were considering sending him for a CAT scan on Tuesday, so we should know more on his status soon. Brock Holt will fill in at second base. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:49 pm

  • Severino to start Wed., Tanaka pushed back
    Luis Severino will start Wednesday against the Twins.

    Advice: The thought was that the Yankees wanted to avoid using Severino against the Twins, with a potential Wild Card game matchup coming up, but the club has decided to keep him on regular rest. Masahiro Tanaka was originally lined up to start Wednesday, but he'll presumably be pushed back to Friday against the Blue Jays. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:38 pm
  • Dee Gordon out of Tuesday's lineup vs. NYM
    Dee Gordon is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Mets.

    Advice: He's just getting a breather. Derek Dietrich will start at second base and Brian Anderson will play third. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:34 pm

  • Marlins activate LHP O'Grady from DL
    Marlins activated LHP Chris O'Grady from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: O'Grady has been sidelined for a little over a month with a right oblique strain. The 27-year-old has compiled a 5.47 ERA and 26/15 K/BB ratio over 26 1/3 innings (six starts) with the Marlins this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:31 pm
  • Kemp (hamstring) out again Tuesday
    Matt Kemp (hamstring) remains out of the Braves' lineup Tuesday against the Nationals.

    Advice: Kemp has now missed three straight starts since leaving Friday's game with hamstring tightness. Fantasy owners shouldn't count on him the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:24 pm

  • Eugenio Suarez not in Reds lineup Tuesday

  • Franco not in Tuesday's lineup
    Maikel Franco is not in Tuesday's lineup versus the Dodgers.

  • Morrison in Tuesday's lineup vs. Cubs
    Logan Morrison is back in Tuesday's lineup against the Cubs.

    Advice: The slumping Morrison has sat out the past two games, but he's back in there against southpaw Mike Montgomery. He's batting just .194 (7-for-36) so far in September. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:23 am
  • Schwarber to serve as DH on Tuesday
    Kyle Schwarber will serve as the designated hitter Tuesday versus the Rays.

    Advice: It's the logical spot for him under American League rules. Ben Zobrist will make the start in left field. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:03 am
  • Reds outright Peterson to Triple-A
    Reds sent 1B/3B D.J. Peterson outright to Triple-A Louisville.

    Advice: Peterson was just claimed off waivers from the White Sox over the weekend, but he passed through waivers this time around. The former first-round pick batted .252/.315/.404 with 16 homers over 128 games at the Triple-A level this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:47 am

  • O's don't plan to shut down Bundy
    Orioles manager Buck Showalter said after Monday's game that he doesn't think Dylan Bundy needs to be shut down.

    Advice: Bundy was tagged for six runs over 4 1/3 innings Monday against the Red Sox and has now logged a career-high 169 2/3 innings this season. It's a big jump from the 109 2/3 innings he threw last year. Showalter admitted that fatigue might be setting in, but he doesn't see a reason to shut him down yet. "No, I don't think we're at that point yet," said Showalter. "Stuff's fine, he feels great between starts, he's getting extra days' rest. As long as we think it's beneficial for him and the club, then we'll continue down that path. But we're not at that point yet." We expect the Orioles to sing a different tune once they are officially eliminated from the Wild Card race. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:03 am

  • Mets could discuss Harvey's status
    Mets manager Terry Collins indicated after Monday's game that the club could discuss Matt Harvey's status for the remainder of the season.

    Advice: Collins initially said there's nothing to lose by continuing to start him, but he left the door open for a change. "We’ll talk about other options," Collins said. "But we don’t have a lot." Harvey was rocked for seven runs over four-plus innings Monday against the Marlins and now owns an ugly 6.59 ERA through 17 starts this season. For Harvey's part, he wants to keep pitching. "Yeah, this is my job," said Harvey. "This is what I’m supposed to do. You have to keep pushing, and go back out there and do everything you can to be better. Obviously, that’s not working, so you have to figure something else out." Rotoworld.com Today, 6:48 am
  • Jones (soreness) has RBI single in return
    Adam Jones (soreness) went 1-for-5 with an RBI single, a walk, and a run scored Saturday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Jones sat out Sunday's game due to general soreness, but it doesn't sound like a major concern. The 32-year-old is batting .281/.318/.465 with 26 homers and 71 RBI over 141 games this season. He has enjoyed a strong second half. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:46 am

  • Hanley (biceps) strikes out as pinch-hitter
    Hanley Ramirez (biceps) struck out in a pinch-hit appearance Monday versus the Orioles.

    Advice: It was Ramirez's first game action since last Wednesday, as he's been dealing with biceps soreness. Of course, he's also had nagging soreness in both of his shoulders for most of the year. The hope is that he'll return to the lineup on Tuesday or Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:41 am

  • Hedges hits 18th home run of the season
    Austin Hedges slugged his 18th home run of the season Monday in the Padres' win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Hedges hit a solo shot off Arizona starter Patrick Corbin in the bottom of the second inning to give the Padres an early 4-0 lead. Hunter Renfroe had cranked a three-run bomb in the bottom of the first. Hedges finished the night 1-for-3 and he is batting just .211/.254/.396 in 112 total games this season, but the power at least is something to dream on. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:31 pm
  • Perdomo gets eighth win Monday vs. Arizona
    Luis Perdomo held the Diamondbacks to two earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Monday for his eighth win of the season.

    Advice: Perdomo issued six walks, but he kept Arizona from doing much significant damage by yielding only four hits -- all of them singles. He struck out two. The young right-hander will bring a 4.57 ERA and 1.52 WHIP into his next start at home versus the Rockies. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:24 pm
  • Renfroe mashes three-run homer vs. D'Backs
    Hunter Renfroe hit a three-run homer in the Padres' 4-2 win over the Diamondbacks on Monday.

    Advice: Renfroe was just called up from Triple-A El Paso on Monday afternoon and he went yard in his first plate appearance back at Petco Park, giving the Friars an early 3-0 lead. The 25-year-old mashed the ball during his month-long stay in the minors and could carry sneaky fantasy value over these crucial final weeks as a legitimate power threat. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:19 pm
  • David Peralta leaves game due to tight quad
    David Peralta left Monday night's game against the Padres after experiencing tightness in his right quad.

    Advice: Peralta was 1-for-2 with an RBI single and a walk before getting lifted in the sixth inning. He'll be reevaluated on Tuesday. This is obviously a bad time of the year for any type of injury, minor or major. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:50 pm

  • Dustin Pedroia (nose) could have CAT scan
    Dustin Pedroia (nose) could undergo a CAT scan Tuesday.

    Advice: Pedroia on Monday was hit by a foul ball that bounced off the ground and struck him in the nose. The preliminary diagnosis was a nasal contusion, but if he's still really sore Tuesday he could be sent for more tests. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:52 pm

  • Dylan Bundy gives up six runs to Red Sox
    Dylan Bundy was tagged for six runs in 4 1/3 innings by the Red Sox on Monday.

    Advice: Bundy's fifth start versus Boston this year was easily his worst; he had a 2.49 ERA in the first four. With the Orioles pretty much done in the wild card race now, we wouldn't be surprised to see Bundy shut down soon. He's at 170 innings now, a huge step up from last year's career high of 110.

  • Gordon goes 4-for-6 and tallies 55th steal
    Dee Gordon went 4-for-6 with two RBI, a stolen base, and two runs scored Monday in the Marlins' defeat of the Mets.

    Advice: Gordon hit three singles and contributed a two-run triple to the Marlins' seven-run outburst in the bottom of the fifth inning. The 29-year-old second baseman is batting .308/.344/.373 with a league-leading 55 steals in 146 games this season. He's also up to 103 runs scored. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:42 pm

  • Harvey hammered for seven runs by Marlins
    Matt Harvey was hammered for seven earned runs over four-plus innings Monday in a loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: Harvey issued two walks and gave up a dozen hits, including a three-run homer to Giancarlo Stanton in the bottom of the fourth inning. The former front-line starter is sitting on 62 strikeouts and 62 earned runs allowed through 17 outings this season. What an incredible fall from grace. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:35 pm
  • Dustin Pedroia removed with nasal contusion
    Dustin Pedroia has been diagnosed with a nasal contusion.

    Advice: Pedroia was hit by a foul ball that bounced off the ground and struck him in the face, but it appears he's avoided any fractures. Consider the veteran infielder day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:33 pm

  • Pedroia leaves after fouling ball off face
    Dustin Pedroia exited Monday's game versus the Orioles after a foul ball bounced up and caught him in the face.

    Advice: Pedroia's nose was bleeding and he understandably appeared to be in a lot of pain as he walked off the field. He'll likely be sent for X-rays and might need to go through concussion protocol. The Red Sox should have an update on Pedroia later Monday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:22 pm

  • Padres recall Hunter Renfroe from Triple-A
    Padres recalled OF Hunter Renfroe from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Renfroe spent the last month in the minors trying to get his swing in order, and he seemed to do just that with a ridiculous .509/.557/.891 batting line and four homers over 61 plate appearances. He should get plenty of starts in right field down the stretch and is worth a pick-up in deeper leagues if you need a little power boost. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:16 pm
  • Ramirez (biceps) expected to play vs. Orioles
    Red Sox manager John Farrell said Monday that he expects Hanley Ramirez (biceps) to return to the lineup at some point during the series versus the Orioles.

    Advice: Ramirez is missing his fifth straight game Monday, but it sounds like he'll be back in there Tuesday and/or Wednesday. He could be limited to designated hitter duty down the stretch in order to protect his left biceps and sore shoulders. Ramirez has played first base only 17 times this season, anyway.

  • Pedroia starting at second base Monday
    Dustin Pedroia will start at second base Monday against the Orioles.

    Advice: Pedroia served as the designated hitter on Sunday, but he's back at his normal position for Monday's game while Brock Holt takes a seat. Christian Vazquez will start out of the DH spot while Sandy Leon will catch Doug Fister. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:08 pm

    Bryce Harper (knee) was able to take batting practice on the field prior to Sunday's game against the Dodgers.

    Advice: It's the first time that he has done so since suffering his knee injury a month ago. He had already been hitting in the cages and began doing light running this week. Harper has his sights set on returning for the National League Divisional Series. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:31 pm

  • Schwarber homers as Cubs sweep Cardinals
    Kyle Schwarber cranked his 27th home run of the season Sunday in the Cubs' 4-3 defeat of the Cardinals.

    Advice: It was a fourth-inning solo shot off Cardinals starter Lance Lynn. Schwarber finished the game 1-for-4 and is batting just .207 with a .314 on-base percentage, but the power has been as advertised. Chicago swept St. Louis in the crucial three-game weekend set, jumping out to a four-game lead in the National League Central standings. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:22 pm
  • Suarez crushes 26th homer in win over Reds
    Eugenio Suarez hit a two-run homer on Sunday in the Reds win over Pittsburgh.

    Advice: It's the 26th homer of the season for Suarez, and it was a two-run shot off of Gerrit Cole in the sixth. Very quietly, the 26-year-old has had a very productive year for the Reds, with a .376 on-base percentage and .480 slugging percentage. You can do a lot worse. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:41 pm

    Adam Jones is not in the Orioles' lineup Sunday due to general soreness.

    Advice: Jones has now sat out two of the last three games and was removed early from the other contest because he feels a little beat up following last week's series on the artificial turf in Toronto.

  • Gordon, Marlins sprint to early lead in win
    Dee Gordon went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and two runs scored to help the Marlins defeat the Brewers 7-4 on Saturday.

    Advice: Gordon led off the game with the first of four consecutive singles, eventually coming around to score. He also led off the seventh inning with a hit, swiping his 54th base of the year afterwards. Gordon had a modest hitting streak ended Friday, so what better way to cope than to start a new one? In 144 games overall, the 29-year old is slashing .303/.340/.365 with 101 runs scored and 28 RBI. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:37 pm

  • Arrieta (hamstring) throws bullpen session
    Jake Arrieta (hamstring) threw 42 pitches in a bullpen session on Saturday.

    Advice: It should be the final step before his return to the Cubs' rotation. The plan calls for him to be reevaluated when he returns to the ballpark on Sunday, but there's a chance he's back sometime next week.

  • Morrison ejected from Saturday's game
    Logan Morrison was ejected from Saturday's game against the Red Sox by home plate umpire Jeff Nelson.

    Advice: Morrison was yelling from the dugout, possibly in objection to a balk call on Rays starter Alex Cobb. Morrison wasn't even in the starting lineup Saturday, but now he's ruled out for a possible pinch-hit appearance. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:55 pm
  • Nova exited start with right calf tightness
    Ivan Nova was forced to exit Saturday's start against the Reds with right calf tightness.

    Advice: Nova isn't alarmed and expects to make his next start. The Pirates figure to see how he feels over the next day or two before that becomes official. Nova was charged with two runs over 6 1/3 innings in a loss to the Reds on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:27 pm

    Adam Jones left Saturday's game against the Yankees in the seventh inning.

    Advice: The Orioles likely just didn't want to take any chances with him being down 7-0 at the time. Jones sat out Friday's game with general leg soreness, but was able to return to the starting lineup Saturday. He went 0-for-3 with a strikeout before exiting. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:54 pm

He was forced to exit later on in the frame after being visited by the team trainer. Nova fanned six and gave up just three hits and one walk before exiting.

    Jordan Zimmermann (neck) is scheduled to throw another bullpen session on Monday.

    Advice: Zimmermann, who had a nerve-blocking injection in his neck earlier this month, threw 40-45 pitches without incident in a bullpen session on Friday. Barring any setbacks on Monday, he's scheduled to make his return Thursday against the Twins. Fantasy owners haven't missed Zimmermann at all, as he's struggled with a 6.18 ERA over 27 starts this season. That's the highest ERA among all qualified starters. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:34 pm

    Advice: Sano estimates that he took 35 swings. It's nice to hear, but the young slugger hasn't been able to shake the swelling and pain in his shin and isn't yet running at 100 percent. Still, he's hoping to rejoin the Twins before the end of the season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:06 pm

  • Logan Morrison not in Rays lineup on Saturday
    Logan Morrison is not in the Rays starting lineup for Saturday's showdown against Rick Porcello and the Red Sox.

    Advice: It doesn't appear to be anything more than a regular day of rest for the veteran slugger. Corey Dickerson is functioning as the team's DH while Lucas Duda mans first base. Despite his 36 home runs and 82 RBI on the season, Morrison has slumped of late, slashing just .210/.288/.437 over his last 34 games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:25 pm
  • Matt Kemp (hamstring) not in action Saturday
    Matt Kemp (hamstring) was held out of the Braves' starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Kemp was forced to leave Friday night's game due to tightness in his left hamstring and he'll sit out Saturday's contest as a precautionary measure as well. He's considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:11 pm

  • Dustin Pedroia not in Red Sox lineup Saturday
    Dustin Pedroia is not in the Red Sox starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Rays.

    Advice: After finishing Friday's game 0-for-9, the veteran infielder will take a day to clear his head. Brock Holt is starting in his place at second base and hitting eighth for the Red Sox. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:08 pm

  • Kyle Schwarber not in Cubs lineup on Saturday
    Kyle Schwarber is absent from the Cubs' starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Jon Jay is starting in his place in left field and batting eighth against Michael Wacha and the Cardinals. Look for Schwarber to be back in there for Sunday's series finale. He's hitting .207/.315/.452 with 26 homers and 51 RBI in 392 at-bats on the season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:48 am
  • Hanley Ramirez MRI reveals only inflammation
    The MRI on the injured biceps of Hanley Ramirez revealed inflammation, but no structural damage.

    Advice: He's considered day-to-day. It's very encouraging news for the Red Sox who had feared that Ramirez would be sidelined for a considerable amount of time. The 33-year-old is hitting .238/.320/.423 with 22 homers and 55 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:06 am

  • Dustin Pedroia goes 0-for-9
    Dustin Pedroia finished 0-for-9 in Friday's 15-inning game against the Rays.

    Advice: Pedroia is just the third player since 2000 to go 0-for-9, joining Boston's Trot Nixon (2006) and Atlanta's Martin Prado (2011). He made a bid for a go-ahead hit in the 11th tonight, but Adeiny Hechavarria made a great play to snare his liner. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:21 pm

  • Severino goes eight innings in win over O's
    Luis Severino gave up two runs in eight innings in an 8-2 victory over the Orioles on Friday.

    Advice: It was his longest outing since May 24. Severino was brilliant, holding the Orioles to just three hits and one walk. The only damage was a two-run homer from Welington Castillo in the second inning. The Yankees’ ace struck out seven in the victory and now stands at 13-6 with a 2.93 ERA and 218/49 K/BB ratio in 184 1/3 innings over 29 starts this season. He has progressed more quickly than anyone could have reasonably expected. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:05 pm
  • Matt Kemp leaves game with tight hamstring
    Matt Kemp was removed from Friday's game due to a tight left hamstring.

    Advice: The veteran outfielder has battled recurring hamstring issues throughout the season. It's unclear if the severity of this one will keep him out of action for awhile or if he'll be ready to return at some point over the weekend. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:48 pm

  • Miguel Sano (shin) hits in cage Friday
    Miguel Sano (shin) did some hitting in a batting cage Friday.

    Advice: Sano is still limited to off-the-field work after he had a little setback earlier this week when he attempted to ramp things up. He still figures to make it back at some point this season, but his recovery has really dragged on much longer than expected. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:37 pm

  • Hanley Ramirez undergoes MRI on biceps
    Hanley Ramirez underwent an MRI on his left biceps Friday.

    Advice: The results aren't in yet, but Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated that Ramirez could be sidelined for a while. This is after Farrell said Thursday that Ramirez's chronically sore shoulders were bothering him again. Dustin Pedroia should see a lot of time in the designated hitter spot while Ramirez is out as the Red Sox rest his knee as much as possible. That would free up second base for Eduardo Nunez (knee) when he's ready, but in the meantime Brock Holt will see an uptick in at-bats. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:21 pm

    Hector Rondon has been shut down for the time being due to a sore right elbow.

    Advice: The good news is tests came back negative for structural damage, but it sounds like Rondon will be unavailable for a while. The injury could at least partly explain the reliever's poor second half (5.59 ERA). Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:53 am

  • Arrieta (hamstring) to throw off mound Sat.
    Jake Arrieta (hamstring) will throw another bullpen session Saturday.

    Advice: Arrieta came through a bullpen session Thursday with no issues, and if he gets through Saturday's session without a hiccup the Cubs will map out a plan for his return to the rotation. It could potentially happen as soon as next weekend in Milwaukee, although obviously nothing is set in stone at this point. We'll know more Saturday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:51 am

    Advice: If the right-hander feels well on Friday he will be cleared to throw a full bullpen session. It could set Arrieta up for a return as soon as early next week, although the Cubs aren't revealing any concrete plans. He has been on the shelf since September 4 due to his hamstring issue.

    Advice: Ubaldo Jimenez will get the ball then. The Orioles haven't announced when Bundy's start will come, but it should happen early in the week. He could be shut down during the final week of the season if the Orioles fall out of the wild card hunt. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:51 pm

    Advice: If that workout goes well, the Cubs will schedule a full-intensity bullpen session for the weekend.

  • Mets 'highly unlikely' to non-tender Harvey
    Mets sources tell Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News that it's "highly unlikely" the team will non-tender Matt Harvey this winter.

    Advice: Harvey has posted a wretched 5.82 ERA in 77 1/3 innings this season while continuing to battle right shoulder problems, but it sounds like the Mets are hopeful the 28-year-old can rebound with a full winter of rest and rehab. Harvey is earning a $5.13 million salary in 2017, his second year of arbitration. He is due a raise in 2018 despite the poor results. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:21 am
  • Hanley Ramirez out of Red Sox lineup
    Hanley Ramirez is out of the Red Sox lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Athletics.

    Eugenio Suarez hit a grand slam Wednesday in the Reds' 6-0 win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: It was his first homer, but Suarez is 7-for-10 with three walks and 21 RBI with the bases loaded this year. On the other hand, he's 1-for-19 with runners on just second and third. The obvious answer is for pitchers to simply start balking whenever he's up with the sacks packed. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:11 pm

  • Harvey bombed again, gives up five runs Wed.
    Matt Harvey was roughed up for five runs in just 3 1/3 innings and was charged with a loss to the Cubs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He walked in a run and was responsible for the first four of the 11 walks issued by the Mets' pitching staff in this game. He struck out two batters and allowed seven hits in the brief outing. Harvey drove in a run with a suicide squeeze in his only plate appearance. He falls to 5-5 with a woeful 6.14 ERA and 1.57 WHIP after 16 starts in another injury-plagued season for the former ace. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:03 pm
  • Dustin Pedroia goes 3-for-4 in loss
    Dustin Pedroia finished 3-for-4 on Wednesday, giving him three straight multi-hit games.

    Advice: Pedroia has seven hits, a homer and a couple of walks in his last three games, pushing his average up to .313. The power hasn't been there in abundance last year, but he's remained an excellent player anyway. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:34 pm

    Bryce Harper (knee, calf) has begun doing "some light running," per Nationals manager Dusty Baker.

    Advice: Harper has also been hitting off a tee and playing catch from around 30-45 feet for the past week. There are still many hurdles to clear, but the 24-year-old superstar is at least making steady progress and he should be ready to go by the start of the postseason.

    Advice: Schwarber was making his first start since last Thursday and made a statement by getting on base in all four of his trips to the dish.

  • Dylan Bundy holds down Jays over six
    Dylan Bundy struck out eight across six frames of one-run ball Tuesday, taking a no-decision in the Orioles' loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: The Jays plated a run on a Justin Smoak RBI double in the third, but that’s all they were able to muster off of Bundy. The young righty needed only 89 pitches to get through his six innings, but Orioles manager Buck Showalter decided that was enough. He took a no-decision when the Jays came back to win it in the ninth. It’s a nice bounce-back outing for Bundy after he was knocked around by the Yankees the last time out. He’ll face those Yanks again Sunday in the Bronx. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:24 pm

    Advice: Zimmermann received a nerve block injection in his neck last Wednesday as well as an injection in his spine. He still felt soreness in the area of the injection while playing catch on Monday, but he believes it's a result of the injection rather than a recurrence of his neck issues.

    Advice: It wasn't all great for Peralta, as he was charged with his fourth error of the season on a bobble, leading to an unearned run in a disastrous ninth inning for the Snakes.

    Advice: Schwarber didn't start the game, but he came off the bench in the sixth inning with Chicago trailing 11-0 and he had two successful plate appearances, drawing a walk in the bottom of the sixth before cranking a solo homer in the bottom of the eighth. Schwarber is batting just .201 with a .312 on-base percentage in 114 games this season, but the power numbers have been relatively useful. Rotoworld.com Sep 9, 4:56 pm

    Advice: Severino walked three on the afternoon. The only hit that he allowed in the game was an RBI double to Brett Nicholas in the fifth inning. Quickly solidifying himself as the ace of the Yankees' staff, Severino owns a terrific 2.96 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 211/48 K/BB ratio across 176 1/3 innings on the season. He'll do battle against the Orioles his next time out on Friday. Rotoworld.com Sep 9, 1:12 pm

    Kyle Schwarber is not in the Cubs starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Brewers.
