Player Notes

  • Roberto Perez homers, assists in walk-off
    Roberto Perez homered in the bottom of the second inning and helped the Indians earn a 5-4 walk-off win in the bottom of the 10th inning Monday night against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Perez got Cleveland on the board with a three-run blast off Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez and later drove in the winning run on a sacrifice bunt that was botched by Red Sox infielder Brock Holt. The 28-year-old backup catcher is slashing .180/.271/.273 with two home runs and 22 RBI in 50 games this season. 24 minutes ago
  • Hanley slugs two-run homer in loss to CLE
    Hanley Ramirez hit a two-run homer and drew a walk in Monday's extra-innings loss to the Indians.

    Advice: It was just the second home run for Hanley since July 25. He entered play on Monday slashing just .208/.309/.375 in August, but there's reason to expect better production from the 33-year-old designated hitter along the stretch run. 33 minutes ago
  • Jeff Mathis exits game with bruised hand
    Jeff Mathis left Monday's game against the Mets with a right hand contusion.

    Advice: Mathis initially remained in the game after being hit with a foul tip, but he was eventually pulled. It's not clear whether the Diamondbacks have already sent Mathis for X-rays and they came back clean or if the exam still needs to take place. Today, 7:32 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. Today, 7:24 pm
  • Schoop belts three-run homer as O's top A's
    Jonathan Schoop belted a three-run homer Monday in the Orioles' defeat of the Athletics.

    Advice: The three-run shot off A's starter Chris Smith gave Baltimore a 5-1 advantage in the bottom of the fifth inning. Schoop also had a big showing in Sunday's series finale against the Angels and he now boasts a .302/.351/.538 slash line with 27 home runs and 91 RBI over 123 total games this season. Today, 7:21 pm
  • Yolmer Sanchez drives in four runs vs. MIN
    Yolmer Sanchez hit a three-run homer and tallied four total RBI as the White Sox topped the Twins 7-6 in the first half of Monday's doubleheader.

    Advice: Sanchez went deep off Twins starter Tim Melville in the bottom of the fourth inning and he drove in Nicky Delmonico on a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the fifth. The 25-year-old utility infielder is still batting just .251/.305/.374 with six home runs and 38 RBI in 104 total games this season. Today, 6:05 pm
  • Dozier finishes 2-for-4 with double, SB, run
    Brian Dozier went 2-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base, and a run scored in the Twins' loss to the White Sox on Monday evening.

    Advice: Dozier scored the first run of the split doubleheader after drawing a leadoff walk in the top of the first inning. He then singled in the top of the seventh and doubled in the top of the eighth, but Minnesota ultimately fell 7-6 in the early game at Guaranteed Rate Field. Dozier is enjoying an excellent August and has lifted his season OPS to .826. The 30-year-old second baseman has 25 home runs, 23 doubles, 68 RBI, 12 stolen bases, and 70 runs scored in 116 total games played. Today, 5:57 pm
  • Rodon excellent again Monday against Twins
    Carlos Rodon held the Twins to two earned runs while striking out nine batters over 6 1/3 innings Monday in the first half of a split doubleheader.

    Advice: Another excellent outing from the 24-year-old left-hander, who boasts a 2.25 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 37/9 K/BB ratio in 36 innings over his last five starts. And those numbers have come against some very good offenses, including the Indians, Red Sox, Astros, and Dodgers. Rodon has lowered his season ERA to 3.88 and he boasts 68 strikeouts in 60 1/3 total frames. The former No. 3 overall pick should be owned and active in most mixed fantasy leagues as he rolls into his next start at home against the Tigers. Today, 5:07 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. Today, 4:17 pm
    10-Day DL
  • 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. Today, 3:15 pm
    Not Active
  • Ryan Rua recalled from Triple-A
    Rangers recalled 1B/OF Ryan Rua from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Rua will provide a little depth with Joey Gallo (concussion) banged up. He's hit only .202 with two homers over 99 major league at-bats this season. Today, 3:06 pm
  • Melvin Upton opts out of SF minors deal
    Giants released OF Melvin Upton.

    Advice: Upton opted out of his minor league contract in hopes of catching on with a contending club. Injuries have limited him to just 12 games in the minors this summer, and he's hit only .244/.306/.333. However, Upton had an .874 OPS against lefties last season and can still play some defense and run. The 33-year-old outfielder should draw some interest on the open market. Today, 2:58 pm
    Not Active
  • Yasmany Tomas to have core muscle surgery
    Yasmany Tomas will undergo season-ending core muscle surgery on Tuesday.

    Advice: Tomas first went on the disabled list back in early June and encountered multiple setbacks along the way. It amounts to a lost season for the 26-year-old, as he hit only .241/.294/.464 with eight homers while being limited to 47 games. The Diamondbacks tried to trade Tomas last winter and it wouldn't be a surprise if they try again this winter, although the market for him might not be there. Today, 2:50 pm
    60-Day DL
  • 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. Today, 2:08 pm
  • Felix Hernandez (shoulder) to resume throwing
    Felix Hernandez (shoulder) will play catch Tuesday.

    Advice: Hernandez to this point has been limited to strengthening exercises over the last three weeks after being diagnosed with more bursitis in his right shoulder, but he's ready to start throwing again now. The veteran right-hander will surely need at least one rehab start before returning, so he's likely still at least a couple weeks away. Today, 1:25 pm
    10-Day DL
  • Yu Darvish throws bullpen session
    Yu Darvish (back) got through a bullpen session without incident Monday and is tentatively scheduled to start for the Dodgers on Sunday.

    Advice: First, he'll throw once more on Thursday. If Darvish makes it back Sunday as planned, he'll have missed just one start. Today, 12:57 pm
    10-Day DL
  • Drew Pomeranz set for Wednesday
    Drew Pomeranz (back) said he's ready to pitch Wednesday after throwing his regular between-outings bullpen session Monday.

    Advice: Barring some sort of setback, Pomeranz will face the Indians on Wednesday. Today, 12:50 pm
  • 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. Today, 12:33 pm
  • Two-hit day for McMahon
    Rockies prospect Ryan McMahon went 2-for-4 with a double on Sunday for Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: The double is the 39th of the year for McMahon, and 22nd in 61 games for the Isotopes. He certainly has power in his bat, but few prospects are doing a better job right now of putting the ball into the gaps. There's nowhere for him to play right now, but McMahon is ready to hit big-league pitching. He should be a key component on the bench when rosters expand. Today, 11:07 am
    Not Active
  • 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. Today, 9:34 am
