Player Notes

  • Kyle Schwarber hits 20th homer
    Kyle Schwarber went 3-for-5 and hit his 20th homer Thursday against the Reds.

    Advice: Schwarber's average is back over .200 for the first time since early May. He is 6-for-11 with three walks and two HBPs the last four days. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:18 pm
  • Francisco Cervelli (wrist) heads to 10-day DL
    Pirates placed C Francisco Cervelli on the 10-day disabled list with left wrist inflammation.

    Advice: This is Cervelli's third trip to the DL this season. It's worth noting that Cervelli broke the hamate bone in his left hand last year, which eventually led to surgery. Chris Stewart should see most of the action behind the plate during his absence. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:16 pm
  • Yan Gomes homers, reaches five times
    Yan Gomes went 3-for-3 with a homer, four RBI, a walk and a HBP as the Indians topped the Twins 9-3 in the first game of Thursday's doubleheader.

    Advice: It's the first time in his career he's reached base safely five times in a game. He hadn't even reached four times in a game since Aug. 13, 2015 against the Yankees. Gomes had a great month of May this year, but he's otherwise been really quiet offensively. Even after today, he's hitting just .226 with eight homers and 37 RBI in 257 at-bats.

  • Hanigan scratched Thursday due to illness

    Advice: Jonathan Lucroy will now start at catcher and bat fifth versus Braves right-hander Lucas Sims. Hanigan is day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:50 am

  • Jorge Alfaro finds seats in road loss
    Jorge Alfaro connected for his first major league home run in Tuesday's loss in San Diego.

    Advice: Alfaro's two-run home run off of rookie Dinelson Lamet certainly made him feel better after picking up his second error of the season on a throwing miscue. The backstop has hit safely in each of his first games since being recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley back on Aug. 5. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:27 am
