8/4:Miami second baseman Dee Gordon enjoyed a 3-for-5 performance with two stolen bases on Wednesday in his finest game since coming back from an 80-game suspension. Gordon has recorded a hit in five of his six games since returning to the lineup on July 28 and has raised his average .27 points since then. While it will take him some time to reassert himself in the lineup, a three-hit performance against the mighty Chicago Cubs is a positive sign.--Steven Slivka - RotoBaller
8/4:Christian Yelich collected three hits, including a homer and an RBI double against the Cubs on Wednesday. It was a busy day for Yelich, who recorded a hit in all three games against Chicago. He came out of the gates with an RBI double in the first inning and concluded his monster game with a solo shot in the top of the eighth.--Steven Slivka - RotoBaller
8/4:A.J. Ramos suffered his worst appearance of the season after allowing three earned runs in the bottom of the ninth and giving the Cubs a three-game sweep of the Marlins. Ramos was all over the place, allowing two hits and walking three batters in just .2 innings of work. With the bases loaded, Ramos’ wild pitch allowed the Cubs to leave with their second miraculous come-from-behind victory in the last week.--Steven Slivka - RotoBaller
8/4:For the third consecutive start, Tom Koehler was wheeling and dealing for the Miami Marlins. Unfortunately, Miami’s shaky bullpen cost Koehler his ninth win of the season after squandering a two-run lead in the ninth inning. Koehler allowed just one run in six innings and struck out seven Chicago Cubs, the most strikeouts he’s thrown in a game since the middle of June. Over his last three starts, Koehler has allowed just two runs while striking out 17 batters in 20 innings.--Steven Slivka - RotoBaller
8/4:J. D. Martinez was activated from the disabled list yesterday, but didn't start the game. However, he still made his presence felt when he stepped in as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning and sent the very first pitch he saw into the seats. Martinez is hitting .289 on the year with 13 HR in 253 AB. He should be a nice source of power for the rest of the season.--Tyler Germain - RotoBaller
8/4:Starting in the big leagues for just the fifth time this season, Yankees rookie Chad Green failed to make it out of the fourth inning, allowing eight hits and three earned runs in 3 2/3 innings pitched. He also struck out two and walked four. Green has had a stellar minor league season, with a 1.41 ERA in 15 starts at AAA, but it hasn't translated to much at the major league level yet. It's unclear if he'll get another start for the Yankees or head back to the bullpen. He's 1-2 with a 4.94 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 27 1/3 major league innings.--Kelly Terbest - RotoBaller
8/4:It may have taken some time after returning from the disabled list, but Jose Bautista looks as though he may finally be getting on track. He finished 1-for-3 with a homer and a walk on Wednesday in a 3-1 victory over the Astros. The longball was Bautista’s 15th of the season and his second in the past two days. It also marks the first time since his injury return he’s picked up hits in consecutive games. Given that Joey Bats was heating up immediately prior to his toe injury, it makes sense that it wouldn’t take him too long to start mashing now that he’s back. This would mark the first time this season that he, Josh Donaldson, and Edwin Encarnacion are healthy and producing simultaneously in 2016. Watch out, A.L. East. Fantasy owners, stack Jays in your lineup.--Andrew Bua - RotoBaller
8/4:The Dodgers recalled Julio Urais from AAA on Wednesday and he got work in right away, but this time it was out of the bullpen. The 19-year-old righty threw three innings in relief, allowing six hits and three earned runs. He also struck out three and walked one. This was his first time pitching in the majors in relief, and it was not a good result. But, the Rockies had already hung nine runs on starter Brock Stewart before Urias came into the game, so Urias gave them some much needed innings. There was some speculation that he might start Saturday's game against the Red Sox, but this appearance puts that idea to rest. It sounds like he will probably stay up in the big leagues and work as a long man out of the bullpen. Overall Urias is 1-2 with a 4.98 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 43 1/3 big league innings.--Kelly Terbest - RotoBaller
8/4:The Dodgers moved Clayton Kershaw to the 60-day D.L. yesterday, clearing a 40-man roster spot and making it clear that they don't expect the ace left hander to come back anytime soon. The move makes it so that August 27 is the earliest day he could come back, but he has yet to begin a throwing program, so even that is likely optimistic. Kershaw has been sidelined since late June with a herniated disc in his back. Fantasy owners continue to hold their breath that he won't need season-ending surgery. He had a ridiculous 11-2 record with a 1.79 ERA before hitting the D.L.--Kelly Terbest - RotoBaller
8/4:Brock Stewart might have a future as a viable fantasy player, but the future is not right now. The 24-year-old right hander got lit up by the Rockies at Coors Field yesterday, allowing nine runs in just four innings pitched. He allowed 10 hits and four home runs. Yikes. This was just a spot start from Stewart and the Dodgers will likely send him back to AAA. Despite his 0-2 record and 14.00 ERA at the big league level, he's has a great year in the minors, pitching across three levels with a record of 9-3 and a 1.80 ERA.--Kelly Terbest - RotoBaller
8/4:Cody Reed struggled again on Wednesday night, allowing five runs in five innings and striking out just one batter. Reed has not pitched well in his rookie campaign, racking up a 7.30 ERA/4.06 SIERA and walking over three batters per nine innings. While his SIERA being much lower than his ERA is encouraging, Reed simply isn't producing enough at the present moment to warrant a roster spot outside of deep dynasty leagues. The Reds appear willing to let him figure things out on his own, so he should be out there for his next scheduled start which will come against the Cardinals again.--Matt Terelle - Rotoballer
8/4:Kendall Graveman struggled in his start on Wednesday, allowing six runs in four innings of work while striking out three. The young right-hander had struggled on the road mightily earlier in the season but had appeared to straighten out those issues in a strong month of July. Either way, Graveman has pitched well enough at home to be in the streaming conversation. He will carry a 2.92 home ERA and 3.31 FIP into his next start in Oakland against the Orioles.--Matt Terelle - Rotoballer
8/4:Anthony Recker drove in two runs with two hits on Thursday, giving him six RBI in his last seven games. Recker was called up out of necessity when Tyler Flowers was placed on the DL and plays out of necessity because the Braves' other catcher is A.J. Pierzynski. Recker has a career .195 AVG in 483 MLB at-bats and has never been an offensive threat, but he is showing signs of life this season. He is hitting .357 and driving in runs lately, but is only worth considering as a #2 C in two-catcher formats.--Pierre Camus - RotoBaller
8/4:Edwin Jackson threw eight strong innings against Milwaukee, allowing three ER and earning a win. It was encouraging to see him walk nobody while striking out five. To be clear, Jackson is a starter turned reliever due to increasing ineffectiveness over the years who is now a starter again out of necessity. The Padres have no better options after dealing their entire starting rotation from Opening Day, aside from Tyson Ross who has not pitched since that day. Fantasy owners should be able to find better options. Jackson is 2-2 with a 5.00 ERA and 1.50 WHIP this season.--Pierre Camus - RotoBaller
8/4:Yangervis Solarte had himself a stat-stuffing game on Wednesday against the Brewers. Solarte produced three hits, including a homer, three RBI, and four runs. Solarte had missed the previous five games after being placed on the family leave list. He is 5-for-14 since returning and will be expected to carry a bigger load after the various deals San Diego made. In August, he has been hitting cleanup behind Wil Myers and should see a decent amount of RBI opportunities.--Pierre Camus - RotoBaller
