Buster Posey will take over at first base while Belt gets his first game off since Sept. 13. The Giants have Monday off, so look for Belt to return to action Tuesday when San Francisco hosts the Rockies.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/25/2016) Zimmerman is out of the lineup Sunday against the Pirates, William Ladson of reports.

Zimmerman has notched a .286/.348/.524 line over the last seven games, but had a rough time at the plate Saturday as he went 0-for-4 with a strikeout. In his absence, Clint Robinson will start at first base and hit fifth.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/24/2016) Rodriguez went 2-for-6 with a game-tying RBI double in Friday's 6-5 extra-inning victory over the Nationals.

Rodriguez came through with a two-out two-bagger in the ninth to plate Pedro Florimon and knot the score at 5-5. The 31-year-old is enjoying his best month of the season, with six homers, 16 RBI and a .333/.381/.684 line over 57 September at-bats, along with hits in 11 of his last 12 games.

Padres' Wil Myers: Hits 28th home run of season in win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/24/2016) Myers finished 2-for-3 including a three-run home run in Friday night's 7-2 win over the Giants.

After failing to reach base with a three-strikeout night on Thursday, snapping an eight-game hit streak, Myers started things off right for San Diego in the bottom of the first inning with a three-run shot to center -- his 28th homer of the season -- giving his club a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The 25-year-old first baseman would also cross home in the Padres four-run fifth after reaching base on a single. Myers now sports a cool .261/.338/.473 line on the season.

Cardinals' Matt Adams: Extends hitting streak to four games Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/23/2016) Adams went 1-for-2 with a walk in Friday's 5-0 loss to the Cubs.

The 28-year-old extended his modest hitting streak to four games and was only one of two Cardinals hitters to get on base twice in what was a dominating effort by Jake Arrieta. Adams has endured an injury-shortened second half of the season, but is just two homers short of equaling the career-best 17 he hit in 2013.

Cubs' Anthony Rizzo: Notches three-hit effort Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/23/2016) Rizzo went 3-for-5 with an RBI double, another two-bagger and a run in Friday's 5-0 victory over the Cardinals.

The slugging first baseman now has hits in seven straight, with four multi-hit efforts over that span. Rizzo has smacked three doubles and five homers overall in September as well, after notching only a pair of round-trippers in August. His 104 RBI are a new career high and he remains just a homer short of equaling the career-best 32 he posted in 2014.

Phillies' Tommy Joseph: Sits out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/23/2016) Joseph is not in the lineup Friday against the Mets, Adam Rubin of ESPN reports.

This comes as no surprise, as Ryan Howard is expected to get more starts down the stretch as a last hurrah in Philadelphia. Joseph could come off the bench as a pinch hitter, though, especially given his solid power.

Phillies' Ryan Howard: Will get plenty of playing time
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/23/2016) Manager Pete Mackanin said Howard will play a lot over the Phillies' final nine games of the season, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports.

Howard returned to the starting lineup Thursday after missing a few games with a sore knee. He went 1-for-2 with a walk and his 23rd home run of the season. He's now hit .272/.344/.642 with nine home runs since the beginning of August.

Rockies' Stephen Cardullo: Late addition to lineup Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/22/2016) Cardullo is a late addition to Thursday's lineup in the Rockies' series opener against the Dodgers, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports.

Cardullo will replace Gerardo Parra at first base and bat seventh in the order. The 29-year-old made his major league debut on Aug. 26, and is 9-for-35 with two home runs and nine RBI since being called up.

Pirates' Josh Bell: Absent from lineup Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/22/2016) Bell is not in the lineup Thursday against the Brewers.

Bell has received significant playing time since being called up in mid-August, but he'll get a regular day off with Starling Marte returning to the lineup. It's unclear what will happen to Bell's playing time with the All-Star coming back, but the situation should become clearer in the coming days.
