Pittsburgh Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer (calf) is not in the lineup on Wednesday and is being evaluated for left calf discomfort, according to head trainer Todd Tomcyzk.

Who's ready to take advantage of leagues whose owners are slipping on baseball in lieu of prepping for the fantasy football season? I know I am!

Every week in baseball, a significant player will hit the disabled list, slip into a slump, or get traded out of a good spot.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of leagues ANALYSIS: Pittsburgh Pirates infielder David Freese has been an underestimated player this year. Ok, may he is not big-time power hitter, but he is just another guy who can hit the ball. However, it is worth pointing out that he does have a... Read More

Welcome to Week 20 of the Cut List. This week I’m taking a look at Starlin Castro, Jon Lester, Jed Lowrie, and Eric Thames. I explain why each player should be dropped in most standard shallow leagues. Last week’s cut candidates (Cesar Hernandez, Matt Kemp, Asdrubal Cabrera, Tim Anderson) went a combined 16-for-66 with seven... Read More

We've got a big 14-game slate on deck for this evening and it looks pretty interesting as there is just one five-digit priced pitcher and a handful of others from that "good/great but not elite" tier.

One-inning middle relievers are the constant sources for holds and specialists can manage to secure a hold even with one out. However, while specialists can get many... Read More

I like to consider myself a pioneer of the streaming approach. I won a league about seven years ago by completely ignoring saves and just stacking up the starts each week. While streaming is undoubtedly more directly associated with pitching, there's plenty of value in streaming for offense as well. Maybe you have a stacked... Read More

Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Clay Holmes will be called up to start against the Giants on Friday. In his two starts for the Bucs this year, Holmes has given up four earned runs on nine hits in 8 1/3 innings for a 4.32 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 8.6 K/9. All four of those runs came... Read More
