Burch Smith will pitch in Arizona Fall League
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Padres starting pitcher Burch Smith, who hasn't pitched since April because of a forearm strain, will be able to pitch in the Arizona Fall League, according to MLB.com.

Smith pitched all of 5 1/3 innings for Triple-A El Paso before the injury. He is in the running for a roster spot this spring after recording 11.4 strikeouts per nine innings in 10 appearances, including seven starts, for the big club last season. Of course, he also had a 6.44 ERA and 1.65 WHIP.

Mets opt to shut down Jacob deGrom
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom has pitched for the last time in 2014, according to ESPN.com. The Mets will replace him for his final turn Saturday against the Astros. The rookie was thought to have an innings limit of 180-185 and has thrown 178 2/3 between the majors and minors this season.

Those innings were mostly spectacular. Though deGrom wasn't considered an elite prospect coming into the year, he's a leading candidate for NL Rookie of the Year with a 9-6 record, 2.63 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 9.2 strikeouts per nine innings. Over his final 15 starts, he went 9-2 with a 1.90 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 10.0 strikeouts per nine innings.

Jeurys Familia could be in 2015 closer mix
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

Mets manager Terry Collins told the Newark Star-Ledger that he wants Jeurys Familia to enter spring training next season with the goal of being the team's closer. Collins indicated that Familia would have an opportunity to close in 2015, particularly if Bobby Parnell has not completed his recovery from Tommy John surgery.

Familia has saved five games this season, but has served primarily in a setup role. In addition to getting 21 holds, he has posted a 2-5 record and a 2.30 ERA in 73 appearances.

Derek Norris dealing with shoulder issue
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

CSNBayArea.com reports that Athletics catcher Derek Norris received a cortisone shot in his shoulder on Sunday. He had been experiencing discomfort stemming from contact at a play at the plate during Saturday's game against the Phillies.

Norris recovered well enough to serve as the A's designated hitter on Monday against the Angels, though he was removed for a pinch hitter in the fourth inning.

Orioles' ALDS rotation taking shape
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

Orioles manager Buck Showalter told the Baltimore Sun he will use four starting pitchers for the American League Divisional Series. Chris Tillman is on course to be the team's starter for Game 1 on Oct. 2, and Miguel Gonzalez and Wei-Yin Chen are the likely starters for Games 2 and 3, though their order has yet to be determined.

Should the series advance to a Game 4, Bud Norris would be the leading candidate to make that start.

Blue Jays planning for bullpen day on Thursday
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

With Marcus Stroman serving a five-game suspension and unable to take his usual turn in the Blue Jays' rotation, manager John Gibbons told the Toronto Sun he plans to use a committee of relievers to replace the 23-year-old rookie.

Gibbons has not yet determined who will start Thursday's game against the Mariners, but Todd Redmond, Daniel Norris and Sean Nolin are all candidates to appear in some role.

Michael Wacha not working with his best changeup
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

Michael Wacha recovered well enough from Saturday's start against the Reds to get another turn in the rotation, as the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that he will face the Diamondbacks this weekend.

However, in the three starts Wacha has made since returning from time missed due to a stress fracture in his right shoulder, he has not had his usual success in employing his changeup. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny acknowledged that Wacha is having to rely on his other offerings, telling the Post-Dispatch, "For him to be able to try to pitch without what is normally his No. 1 weapon and hold a team down like he did takes some adjustment. He’s getting better."

According to BrooksBaseball.net, Wacha got swings-and-misses on 16.9 percent of his changeups in 15 starts prior to his disabled list stint. In the three starts since, he has induced only one whiff out of 21 changeups (4.8 percent).

Santiago Casilla gets the win in two-inning outing
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

Giants manager Bruce Bochy called upon Santiago Casilla in Monday's extra-inning affair against the Dodgers, and he held the opponent scoreless for the 11th and 12th innings. That kept the Giants alive, making their three-run 13th inning and 5-2 victory possible.

Casilla was credited with the win, as he faced the minimum six batters. Yasiel Puig reached base on a Brandon Crawford throwing error, and Darwin Barney got on after Casilla hit him, but double play balls erased both batters.

Now 3-3 on the season, Casilla lowered his ERA to 1.76.

Jake Peavy settles for no-decision
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Giants pitcher Jake Peavy wasn't a factor into the decision Monday night in Los Angeles against the Dodgers. He allowed two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out four over seven innings of work.

Over his last six starts covering 41 innings, Peavy has allowed only five earned runs. He owns a 3.78 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP over 31 starts (197 2/3 innings). His final start of the regular season will come at home Saturday against San Diego.
