Latest Headlines

Chipper Jones is among the first-time eligible players on the 2018 Hall of Fame ballot.

Jim Thome, Omar Vizquel, and Johan Santana headline the other notable first-timers. Trevor Hoffman fell five votes short of 75 percent last year and should be in prime position to make it this time. Vladimir Guerrero (who was at 71.7 percent last year) should also be in good shape. Edgar Martinez, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Mike Mussina, and Curt Schilling are among the other notable holdovers. Voting results will be announced on January 24.

Kenley Jansen allowed back-to-back homers in the ninth inning to pick up the loss against St. Louis on Monday.

It was Jansen's first appearance since he was placed on the disabled list with an irregular heartbeat on August 10. Unfortunately, it didn't go well, as he entered in a tie game and allowed homers to Jedd Gyorko and Matt Carpenter. It would have been nice to see him pitch well on Monday, but the important thing is that Jansen is healthy, and you should expect him to pitch much better down the stretch.

Matt Carpenter went 3-for-5 with a homer in a 5-3 win over the Dodgers on Monday.

Carpenter and Jedd Gyorko went back-to-back off of Kenley Jansen, and it gave the Cardinals a 5-3 lead and Carpenter his 34th homer. The first baseman also hit his 34th double of the season, and his season OPS is now up to .969 with 69 RBI in his 121 games. At this point, you might be able to argue he's the favorite to win the MVP in the National League.

Robinson Cano went 3-for-5 with a three-run homer and two doubles in a 7-4 victory over the Astros on Monday.

Cano took Colin McHugh deep in the eighth inning with two runners on to break a 4-4 tie. It's the first homer for the infielder since his return from an 80-game suspension, and the fifth of the year over 45 games. On the year, Cano is now hitting .296/.383/.456, and there hasn't been much -- if any -- rust since returning to the lineup. If someone impatiently waived him, you should have already added him.

Ramon Laureano went 2-for-5 with two homers and five RBI in a blowout win over the Rangers on Monday.

Laureano took Bartolo Colon deep for a two-run blast in the second, and he added a three-run shot in the sixth off of Colon to make it 7-0 A's. It's the first two homers of Laureano's big league career, who has made an immediate impact with Oakland both with the bat and the glove since being called up on August 3. His season line is .281/.281/.469, and he's driven in eight runs in his 12 games. At the very least, Laureano is worth monitoring, and he's worth a roster spot in AL-only leagues.

Mike Fiers was outstanding on Monday against the Rangers, giving up just one hit over seven scoreless innings in a 9-0 victory.

Fiers was at his best on Monday, allowing just a double to Nomar Mazara in the top of the second. He also walked just one, and he fanned eight Texas hitters in the win. Since being acquired from the Tigers, the veteran right-hander has allowed just three runs in 18 1/3 innings with the A’s, and his season ERA now sits at a solid 3.21 with a 1.16 WHIP in his 137 1/3 innings overall. He toes the rubber again versus the Twins on Saturday, and he’s a sneaky good streaming option in that match-up.

Zack Wheeler struck out a season-high 10 batters over seven innings and did not factor into the decision in the Mets' 2-1 loss to the Giants in extra-innings on Monday.

Wheeler held the Giants offense scoreless through the first six frames before surrendering a game-tying RBI double to Alen Hanson with two outs in the seventh inning. He allowed just one run on five hits in a dominant performance, but was forced to settle for a no-decision and the Mets lost the contest in extra-innings. The 28-year-old right-hander racked up an absurd 21 swinging strikes on 113 pitches. In 15 starts since June 1, Wheeler owns a sparkling 2.71 ERA and 93/28 K/BB ratio over 96 1/3 innings. He’ll face the Nationals at home in his next start on Saturday.

Dan Winkler earned his second save of the year on Monday night against the Pirates.

Winkler gave up a leadoff single to Francisco Cervelli in the bottom of the ninth inning, but he rallied to strike out two of the final three batters he faced and secured a big 1-0 victory for Atlanta. A.J. Minter blew a save in ugly fashion Saturday against the Rockies and hasn't pitched since, so perhaps we'll see more of Winkler in the ninth inning moving forward. Arodys Vizcaino remains sidelined with a shoulder injury.
Aug 20 - 10:37 PM

Corey Kluber netted his 16th win of the season Monday in the Indians' 5-4 defeat of the Red Sox.

Kluber dug himself an early hole, giving up two runs in the bottom of the first inning and one more in the bottom of the second, but he settled in nicely from there, ultimately finishing with six strikeouts against one walk. He scattered nine hits. The veteran right-hander is now 16-6 on the season with a 2.74 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and 166/23 K/BB ratio in 174 1/3 innings. He'll go for win No. 17 this weekend in Kansas City.
Aug 20 - 10:16 PM

Kendrys Morales homered twice, tallying four total RBI, in the Blue Jays' 5-3 win over the Orioles on Monday.

Morales put the Jays on the board with a solo shot off O's starter Andrew Cashner in the bottom of the fourth inning before tagging Cashner again for a three-run blast in the bottom of the fifth. The veteran slugger also went yard in Sunday's series finale against the Yankees. He's up to 16 homers and 45 RBI in 103 games this year, to go along with a .252/.334/.439 overall slash line.
Aug 20 - 9:46 PM

Chris Archer was lifted from Monday's start versus the Braves with left leg discomfort.

Archer appeared to have tweaked something while he was batting. The Pirates are deeming his exiting precautionary, so it seems safe to call the right-hander day-to-day. Archer allowed one run on five hits and one walk over four innings of work before being pulled.

Jose Altuve (knee) is set to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

That had been the indication and Astros manager A.J. Hinch confirmed as much Monday. Altuve played in one rehab game Sunday, singling and getting hit by a pitch in his four plate appearances. The second baseman has been sidelined since late July with right knee discomfort.
