Latest Headlines

Jayson Werth (groin) was scratched from Monday's lineup against the Braves.

Nationals manager Davey Johnson said that it's the groin strain from Saturday that's still giving him issues, not his right hand injury from Sunday. The NL Player of the Month for July could be back in there Tuesday.

Christian Yelich (knee, ankle) is back in the Marlins' starting lineup Tuesday against the Braves.

Yelich missed a bit of time with a bruised ankle and knee. He's batting second and starting in left field in his return Tuesday night versus Braves lefty Manny Banuelos.

Steven Matz (lat) will join the Mets' rotation this weekend against the Marlins.

Matz is going to be filling in for Noah Syndergaard, who will skip a turn in the rotation as a way to protect his rookie workload. New York will presumably then shift to a six-starter mix. Matz has been on the disabled list since early July with a partial tear of his left lat muscle. He has a good fantasy matchup in Miami.

Noah Syndergaard will be skipped on his next turn through the Mets' starting rotation.

Steven Matz is going to be activated from the disabled list to fill in Saturday against the Marlins. This is a nice luxury for the first-place Mets, who can give the 23-year-old Syndergaard a nice 10-day break leading into the stretch run and postseason. Syndergaard has a 3.31 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 129/29 K/BB ratio over his first 122 1/3 major league innings.

Kevin Kiermaier (ankle) won't play Tuesday night.

Kiermaier sprained his right ankle on Monday night against the Orioles. He also made a fantastic catch to rob Manny Machado of a home run in that same game. The rangy center fielder should be fine in a few days. Brandon Guyer is in center Tuesday versus Baltimore.
Sep 1 - 4:02 PM

Hector Olivera is in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Marlins.

Olivera was originally on the bench, but he's now batting sixth and starting at third base. The 30-year-old is an intriguing player, but he hit just .231 with three doubles and a .593 OPS in 42 plate appearances during his time with Triple-A Gwinnett. Most fantasy owners can afford to wait and see with him.

Royals activated OF Alex Gordon from the 15-day disabled list.

Gordon has been sidelined since July 8 with a Grade 2 groin strain, but he felt good during a minor league rehab assignment and will make his return to the Royals' lineup on Tuesday night. He's expected to get regular rest down the stretch, so fantasy owners should have a backup plan in mind.
Sep 1 - 3:24 PM

Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) is out of the starting lineup again Tuesday against the Yankees.

Ramirez has now missed five straight starts due to a sore right shoulder. The Red Sox don't need to place him on the disabled list at this point in this season, but it's unclear when he'll be ready to play again. It's a tricky spot for fantasy owners.
Sep 1 - 3:10 PM

Carlos Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks.

Brandon Barnes will start in right field. Look for CarGo to play in the nightcap.

Cubs recalled INF Javier Baez from Triple-A Iowa.

Baez has batted .324/.385/.527 with 13 home runs, 61 RBI, and 17 steals over 70 games in Triple-A this season and has been especially hot of late. Strikeouts were a major issue for him during his time with the Cubs last year, but it looks like he could get the opportunity to take over the second base job. He's worth a try in most mixed fantasy leagues.

Adrian Gonzalez sent the Dodgers home winners with a walk-off RBI single in the 14th inning against the Giants on Monday.

Gonzalez had the bases loaded with no outs against Yusmeiro Petit in the 14th, giving him numerous ways to win the game. He slapped a fly ball to deep left field to bring in the winning run. The first baseman finished 2-for-7. He also drilled a two-run home run off of Jake Peavy in the sixth inning. Gonzalez is batting .284/.355/.504 with 25 home runs and 78 RBI.
Sep 1 - 3:43 AM

Mark Canha went 1-for-3 with a home run and four RBI as the Athletics pounded their way to a win on Monday against the Angels.

Canha drilled a three-run homer in the sixth inning to push the Athletics' lead to 9-3. He added a sacrifice fly in the eighth inning. The first baseman has put up solid numbers on the season, batting .253/.306/.426 with 11 home runs and 54 RBI.
