Cubs' Addison Russell drives in only run of Saturday's victory over Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(12:55 am ET) Cubs infielder Addison Russell went 1 for 4 with an RBI single in Saturday's 1-0 victory over the Brewers.

Russell's RBI single accounted for the only run in Saturday's game, as the Cubs and Brewers combined for ten hits. The 21-year-old has enjoyed a 7-for-15 stretch at the tail end of his rookie season. With a full season of major league experience under his belt -- including a .761 OPS in the second half -- fantasy owners can expect improved numbers from Russell next season.

Nationals 2B Dan Uggla hits first homer since late April in win over Mets
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/3/2015) Nationals second baseman Dan Uggla went 1 for 1 with a solo home in a 2-0 win over the Mets on Saturday.

That marks his second homer of the season and seeing his name pop up is a surprise in itself. The once power-hitting second baseman has been relegated to bench duties, as his average has plummeted and power has dropped off significantly in recent years. Uggla will likely have trouble finding a roster spot on any team come next season.

(10/3/2015) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup due to a rain delay.

Mets 2B Daniel Murphy hits three-run homer Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/30/2015) Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy went 1 for 5 with a three-run homer against the Phillies on Wednesday.

Unfortunately, after Murphy and Michael Conforto hit homers to put the Mets up 5-0 in the first inning, the entire offense went to sleep, managing just three hits and no runs the rest of the way en route to a loss.

He's now hit safely in 11 consecutive games, as Murph's closing out the season on a heater that's lifted his batting average from .271 to .284.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/29/2015) Cubs infielder Addison Russell is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Reds.

Russell is scuffling of late, so manager Joe Maddon decided to give him a day off to clear his head. Javier Baez will get the start at shortstop Tuesday night.

Blanco was terrific Monday, recording three hits --- one of which was a home run ---- in six at-bats against the Nationals, but he will get the night off Tuesday in favor of Darnell Sweeney, who will take over at second base and hit sixth in the lineup.

Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick still feels soreness in hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/28/2015) Dodgers second baseman Howie Kendrick is still experiencing soreness in his hamstring and is not in Monday's lineup, Dylan O. Hernandez of the LA Times reports.

Kendrick went 2 for 5 with a run scored in Colorado on Sunday, but apparently has still been dealing with this issue since being activated from the DL on Sept. 18. It's reportedly something he can play through, but the Dodgers will more than likely give him extra rest down the stretch so he's ready for the playoffs.

(9/28/2015) The Dodgers activated infielder Enrique Hernandez (hamstring) from the disabled list Monday, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports. 

Hernandez is ready to go after missing a month with his hamstring injury. He will not start Monday, though, and will likely fill mainly a situational role the rest of the way.

Dodgers' Jose Peraza likely unavailable for first round of playoffs
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/28/2015) Dodgers infielder Jose Peraza (hamstring) was all-but ruled out of the first round of the playoffs by manager Don Mattingly Sunday, the Dodgers' official site reports.

The team hopes to have Peraza healthy for a potential NLCS, but even then, there may not be room for him on the roster. He's probably looking at a 2016 return date at this point.

Rockies 2B DJ LeMahieu drives in two runs vs. Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/28/2015) Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu went 1 for 4 with two RBI and three runs scored in Sunday's win over the Dodgers.

Despite finishing with a lone base hit in his four at-bats, LaMahieu would drive home runs on a fielder's choice and a sacrifice bunt. LeMahieu's lack of power typically prevents him from serving as much of a run producer, but his 59 RBI on the season are quite serviceable from a middle infielder.
