Kolten Wong absent from St. Louis lineup


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:14 am ET) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong has been given the afternoon off Wednesday in Pittsburgh. Daniel Descalso will man the position instead.

Wong owns a stat line of .249/.289/.388. He has seven hits in his last five games, but no RBI in nearly two weeks.


Robinson Cano swats 12th home run Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:04 am ET) Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano went 1 for 3 with a walk and a solo home run in his team's 5-0 win over the Rangers Tuesday.

Cano opened the scoring Tuesday with a first-inning home run, and it was all the help that James Paxton and Danny Farquhar would need in the win. The second baseman has hit .326/.394/.469 with 12 home runs, 71 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 482 at-bats.


Omar Infante dealing with a sore shoulder


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Royals infielder Omar Infante is dealing with a sore shoulder, according to MLB.com.

Infante was not in the team's starting lineup Tuesday due to the issue. He's hitting .255/.292/.353 over 428 at-bats. 


Jedd Gyorko back in starting lineup Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko is back in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Brewers.

Gyorko has been limited to pinch-hitting duties over the last few days while dealing with a hamstring injury. He owns a .199/.255/.332 line with nine home runs and 44 RBI in 292 at-bats.


Derek Dietrich brought back from DL, optioned to Triple-A


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) The Marlins activated infielder Derek Dietrich from the disabled list Tuesday, following his recovery from a wrist injury. Dietrich was optioned immediately to Triple-A New Orleans, though he seems like a likely candidate to be recalled when rosters expand Sept. 1.  

Daniel Murphy sitting out Tuesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Braves, as Monday's day off did not give him enough time to recover from a calf injury. Murphy left Sunday's game as a result of the injury, and is day to day at this point. 

Asdrubal Cabrera returns from one-game absence


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Nationals infielder Asdrubal Cabrera is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Phillies, after sitting out one game with an injury to his side. He is batting second and starting at second base for Tuesday's game. 

Jorge Soler has standard mixed league value


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(8/26/2014) The Cubs' callup of Jorge Soler has created instant Fantasy buzz, as he has become one of the five most-added outfielders in CBSSports.com leagues. He now boasts a 45 percent ownership rate, and it could -- and should -- rise even higher.

After missing much of the season's first half with a hamstring injury, Soler took both Double-A and Triple-A by storm, slugging .862 at the former level and .618 at the latter. In terms of sheer power, he may fall a little short of the standard set by teammate Javier Baez, but not by much. Soler should certainly demonstrate better contact skills than Baez and hit for a much higher average, at least in the .260s.

With Baez being shortstop-eligible, it's hardly a fair comparison, but it's completely fair to compare Soler with White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia, who has been doing some nice work just across town. Garcia may not be able to sustain the power surge he has produced since returning from the disabled list, but I would have much more confidence in Soler putting up something close to the .483 slugging percentage Garcia currently owns over the rest of this season. Soler can also draw walks, so he could outdo Garcia in on-base percentage, even though I expect Garcia to post the higher batting average.

Because Garcia has more batting average upside and something of a major league track record, limited as it is, I have him ranked just ahead of Soler in both Head-to-Head and Rotisserie formats. That places Soler among the top 50 outfielders in both formats. While that clearly makes him viable in 12-team mixed Roto leagues, it leaves him as more of a borderline option in 12-team mixed Head-to-Head leagues. Maybe he doesn't make the cut for one of your three outfielder spots in those formats, but you could do worse in filling out your utility slot.


Jedd Gyorko hopes to play Tuesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Padres infielder Jedd Gyorko was held out of the starting lineup for the third straight day Monday with a hamstring injury, but U-T San Diego reports he is expected back Tuesday against the Brewers.

Gyorko was able to appear as a pinch-hitter Monday, and though he doesn't think that guarantees him a spot in the lineup Tuesday, he is hopeful.

"It is a good sign, but it was more a process of elimination than anything – there was no one left on the bench," Gyorko said. "But we're getting there. We'll see how it feels, but I should be in there tomorrow."


Stephen Drew swats sixth home run Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Yankees infielder Stephen Drew went 1 for 5 with a solo home run in his team's 8-1 win over the Royals Monday.

Drew gave his team a 2-1 lead in the fourth inning, and the score remained that way until the offense exploded in the seventh. He has hit .173/.250/.330 with six home runs and 21 RBI in 191 at-bats.


Dustin Pedroia goes yard


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2014) Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia hit a home run Monday against the Blue Jays.

Pedroia struck in the fifth inning. He took a 78 mph curveball out to left for the two-run shot. It was Pedroia's sixth home run of the year. He finished 1 for 5, with one run scored and two RBI.

Jedd Gyorko not back Monday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Robinson Cano back in action Monday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The move was made to add more pitching depth for St. Louis. Lyons went 0-3 with a 5.46 ERA over seven appearances (28 innings) in the majors this season.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
