Player Notes

  • Bellinger (ankle) out through at least Tues.
    Cody Bellinger (ankle) won't return to the Dodgers' lineup until at least Wednesday.

    Advice: Bellinger's right ankle is still swollen after he sprained it Saturday, and he'll miss at least three games. The rookie will be re-evaluated Wednesday to see if he's ready to go then or needs more time. The Dodgers can obviously afford to proceed cautiously here given their 20-game lead in the National League West. 18 minutes ago
  • Paul Janish retires from baseball
    Orioles released INF Paul Janish.

    Advice: Janish is retiring from baseball and will take a coaching position at Rice University starting next season. The 34-year-old hit only .212/.280/.284 over parts of nine seasons in the majors, but he was able to sustain a nice little career on the strength of his glove and versatility. 34 minutes ago

  • Nelson Cruz not in Monday's lineup
    Nelson Cruz is not in the Mariners' lineup Monday.

    Advice: Cruz is expected to be limited to pinch-hitting duty for the club's three games in Atlanta, as the M's don't want to play him in the outfield. It's obviously a bummer for his fantasy owners this week. 52 minutes ago
  • Bruce Maxwell (head) feeling much better
    Bruce Maxwell (head) said Monday that he's feeling much better.

    Advice: Maxwell took a foul tip off the mask Saturday and had trouble sleeping that night, but he said he got 11 hours of sleep Sunday night. He's sitting out again Monday in favor of Dustin Garneau, but it sounds like he could be back in there soon. 54 minutes ago
  • Yoan Moncada returns to lineup
    Yoan Moncada will return to start the first game and then sit out the second game of Monday's doubleheader against the Twins.

    Advice: Moncada missed games Saturday and Sunday because of shin splints. Today, 12:07 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

  • Urias homers
    Padres prospect Luis Urias homered on Sunday for Double-A El Paso.

    Advice: That homer gives Urias three on the season. Power is not a big part of Urias's game, but it doesn't have to be for him to be fantasy relevant. He has one of the best projected hit tools in all of baseball. He's spending just as much time at second as he is at shortstop right now, and while he'd be more valuable on the third-base side of the bag, he's an everyday player either way. Today, 10:43 am

  • Three hits for Crawford
    Phillies prospect J.P. Crawford picked up three hits on Sunday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: All three hits for singles. Crawford has been crushing the ball since July, so a three-hit game is no surprise. What was surprising was that for the first time in his career, he played third base. He's no longer a plus-plus defender at short, but he's still a competent defender at the premium position. What this (might) tell us is that the Phillies want to expand his flexibility. If Crawford wasn't hitting this well, that wouldn't happen. This is a good sign. Today, 10:32 am

  • DL a possitility for Gallo
    The Rangers have Ryan Rua en route to Anaheim in case Joey Gallo needs to go on the disabled list because of his nasal fracture.

    Advice: Gallo was hurt in a collision with Matt Bush on Sunday. Rua would enter the DH mix with catchers Brett Nicholas and Robinson Chirinos if Gallo is forced to the DL. We'll probably know more later this afternoon. Today, 10:09 am

  • Kingery picks up three hits, homers.
    Phillies prospect Scott Kingery went 3-for-4 with a homer on Sunday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: The homer is the eighth since Kingery was promoted to Triple-A, and his 26th overall. This was the 48th pick in the 2015 draft, so it's not like this came completely out of nowhere. Having said that, no one could have seen him becoming one of the best infield prospects in baseball. With the Phillies destined for a two-two pick, there's no reason to not see what Kingery can do at the highest level. Today, 10:08 am

  • Acuna continues impressive run
    Braves prospect Ronald Acuna went 3-for-5 on Sunday for Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: One of the hits was a double, and Acuna also scored a run with two RBI for good measure. In the month of August, he's hitting .403, and slugging .675. He won't turn 20 until the end of the year. This is ridiculous. He's the best fantasy prospect in baseball. Today, 10:04 am

  • Twins call up DH Kennys Vargas
    Twins recalled 1B/DH Kennys Vargas from Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: Vargas takes Miguel Sano's spot on the roster and should see a lot of time at DH with Robbie Grossman also down, making him a worthy play in AL-only leagues. He's hit .243/.289/.429 in 177 at-bats for the Twins this year. He'd been hot of late in Triple-A, hitting .394/.447/.545 in nine games since his previous one-day stint in the majors on Aug. 9. Today, 9:57 am
  • Cardinals send down first baseman Voit
    Cardinals optioned 1B Luke Voit to Triple-A Memphis.

    Advice: As suspected, Stephen Piscotty will stick around, giving the Cardinals three options to rotate in right field (Randal Grichuk and Jose Martinez being the other two). Voit started out on fire after getting the call in late June, but his production hadn't continued in limited playing time since the Cardinals got healthier and he had started just two games in August. He'll be back when MLB rosters expand on September 1. Today, 8:09 am

  • Josh Bell powers Pirates to victory on Sunday
    Josh Bell went 2-for-4 with a homer and four RBI on Sunday, powering the Pirates to a 6-3 victory over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Bell clubbed a two-run homer off of Mike Leake in the first inning then tacked on a two-run single during a three-run uprising in the third. With the two-hit attack, Bell is hitting .261/.340/.493 with 21 homers and 72 RBI in what has been a breakout season offensively. Yesterday, 7:09 pm
  • Jesus Aguilar hits two homers to lead Brewers
    Jesus Aguilar clobbered a pair of home runs on Sunday, powering the Brewers to a 8-4 victory over the Rockies in Colorado.

    Advice: Aguilar got the Brewers on the board with a solo shot off of Rockies' starter Kyle Freeland in the first inning. He then tagged Tyler Chatwood for a two-run shot in the seventh inning, increasing the Brewers' lead to 5-1. He finished the day 2-for-4 plus a walk and scored three times. Aguilar is hitting .270/.338/.524 with 14 homers and 44 RBI on the season. Yesterday, 4:18 pm
  • Omar Narvaez collects RBI in win on Sunday
    Omar Narvaez went 1-for-4 with an RBI as the White Sox defeated the Rangers on Sunday afternoon in Arlington.

    Advice: Narvaez opened the scoring in the contest with an RBI single off of A.J. Griffin in the fourth inning. He came around to score on a double by Tyler Saladino later in the frame. The backstop has done a serviceable job at the dish this season, slashing .270/.367/.321 with one homer and 13 RBI in 69 games. Yesterday, 3:32 pm
  • Twins place Miguel Sano (shin) on 10-day DL
    Twins placed 3B Miguel Sano on the 10-day disabled list with a stress reaction in his left shin.

    Advice: Sano left Saturday's game with the issue and sat out Sunday as well. While the Twins' offense exploded without him in the lineup on Sunday, to lose Sano for any considerable length of time would be a major blow to their postseason aspirations. A corresponding roster move will be announced prior to Monday's doubleheader. Yesterday, 3:28 pm

    10-Day DL
  • Gattis (concussion) starting rehab assignment
    Evan Gattis (concussion) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Corpus Christi on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gattis will catch 6-7 innings Tuesday, serve as a designated hitter Wednesday and then catch again Thursday. Assuming that all goes well, he would seem likely to be activated next weekend. Gattis has been out for most of August with post-concussion symptoms. Yesterday, 9:51 am
    7-Day DL
  • Nick Ahmed (hand) begins rehab assignment
    Nick Ahmed (hand) went 0-for-2 with a walk in his first rehab game with the Diamondbacks' Arizona League affiliate on Saturday.

    Advice: Ahmed is working his way back from a fractured right hand, which he suffered back in late June. Ketel Marte has played well at shortstop with both Ahmed and Chris Owings (finger) out, but he could slide over to second base when Ahmed returns. Yesterday, 5:31 am
    60-Day DL
  • Michael Ohlman outrighted to Triple-A
    Blue Jays sent C Michael Ohlman outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Ohlman cleared waivers after being designated for assignment and has decided to remain in the organization. He's gotten a cup of coffee in the majors this season and hit .222/.343/.418 with 12 homers at Buffalo. Yesterday, 5:16 am
