Hot hitting against lefties earns Jon Jay more action


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:28 pm ET) An ability to hit left-handers as well as righties has resulted in increased playing time for Cardinals outfielder Jon Jay recently. He has already earned more at-bats in August than in any previous month this season.

Jay is 24 of 60 against southpaws for a .400 average. He is 23 of 53 since Aug. 7 in raising his batting average from .285 to .310. He has hit safely in 14 of his last 16 games.

Jorge Soler worth the pickup


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/26/2014) If you feel like you've gotten burned with Jon Singleton, Oscar Taveras and Gregory Polanco already (though Polanco, I'd argue, gave you everything you could have wanted for all but his last two weeks on the job), you may be reluctant to take a flier on Jorge Soler, who's supposed to join the Cubs in Cincinnati Tuesday.

But he's worth it, for the reasons I spell out in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog and more.

You could argue any prospect of his caliber is worth it, but I want to use this space to emphasize just what caliber of prospect he is. We weren't so sure coming into the season. He spent much of last year injured and tinkering with his swing. But for all the hype Kris Bryant has gotten, Soler actually has a higher batting average and slugging percentage between the same two levels of competition this year. And he heads to the majors on a high note, batting .625 (10 for 16) with three homers in his last four games.

Maybe he makes a big splash in September; maybe he doesn't. But surely this time of year, you'll want to be the one who capitalizes if he does.


Giancarlo Stanton knocks 33rd home run Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton 1 for 3 with two walks and a three-run home run in his team's 7-1 victory over the Angels Monday.

The National League home-run and RBI leader, Stanton is squarely in the middle of the MVP race, and his batting average is threatening to cross the .300 threshold for the first time since the All-Star break. He owns a .299/.407/.566 line with 33 home runs and 97 RBI in 482 at-bats.


Ryan Braun leaves with quad injury


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun left Monday's game due to a quad injury.

Braun was having a fantastic game before he left. He went 3 for 4, with two singles and a home run. It was his 17th home run this year. Braun was moving slowly throughout the game, and was eventually pulled in the seventh inning due to the injury. The injury is not considered serious, according to the club.


Andrew McCutchen belts 20th home run


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen belted his 20th home run Monday against the Cardinals.

McCutchen struck in the ninth inning. He took a 94 mph fastball from Trevor Rosenthal out to left for a solo shot. McCutchen also singled twice earlier in the contest. He finished 3 for 4, with one run scored and one RBI. 


Carlos Quentin 'more than likely' done for the year


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2014) Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin is "more than likely" done for the season, according to MLB.com.

Quentin is dealing with a bone bruise on his knee. While he does not need surgery, rest has been recommended for the outfielder. Manager Bud Black did not seem optimistic when discussing the injury. "When you have a bone bruise, the only thing you can really do is rest," Black said. "And that's the course of action." Black went on to explain Quentin was "more than likely" out for the year. He hit .177 over 130 at-bats. 


Jorge Soler to be called up Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2014) Cubs outfield prospect Jorge Soler will be called up Tuesday, according to CSNChicago.
