by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/4/2015) An injury-plagued, disappointing season for Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez will end with him losing the last five games to a quad injury.

It remains to be seen if the aging Martinez can bounce back in 2016 or if his knees won't allow him to regain his past hitting prowess.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/4/2015) Indians utility man Ryan Raburn went for 1 for 2 with a solo homer in Saturday's 2-0 victory over the Red Sox.

It was business as usual for Raburn against left-handed pitching, with all eight of his homers this season coming off southpaws. Although he has only tallied 173 at-bats in 2015--primarily against the left-handers that he typically punishes--Raburn has posted an impressive .301 average that is 43 points higher than his career .258 mark.

Red Sox DH David Ortiz remains sidelined Saturday vs. Indians
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/3/2015) Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz is not in the lineup for Saturday's contest against the Indians, Sean McAdam of Comcast Sports Net reports.

The 39-year-old had been kept out of the lineup Thursday with some general soreness, so it's not a surprise to see him out of the lineup Saturday as well. Brock Holt will get the start at DH instead and hit sixth in the batting order

Tigers 1B Victor Martinez (quad) not in Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/3/2015) Tigers first baseman Victor Martinez (quad) is not in the lineup Saturday.

The 36-year-old hasn't been able to play since Wednesday as he has struggled to shake off a sore left quad. J.D. Martinez will get the start at DH, with Steven Moya filling in at right field and with just one game remaining in the season, it's fair to question if we've seen the last of Martinez in 2015.

Red Sox DH David Ortiz hits 37th homer of the season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/2/2015) Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz was 1 for 3 with a two-run home run in a losing effort against Cleveland on Friday night.

He sat out Thursday's contest suffering from general soreness, and there was some talk that he might be shut down for the season, but he was back in his normal clean-up spot and serving as the designated hitter. He swatted his 37th home run in the fourth inning, and was later removed for a pinch hitter when the game was out of reach. His status for the weekend is unclear, so those with daily changes will want to monitor Boston's lineup on Saturday and Sunday.

Morales will join both Lorenzo Cain and Alex Rios as Royals players who are now day-to-day with injuries that have arisen in the past couple days. Fortunately, none of the injuries appear overly serious, so it's quite possible they'll be available for the Royals' postseason run.

Red Sox DH David Ortiz could miss rest of season with soreness
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/1/2015) Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz is reportedly dealing with some "general soreness" and could miss the remainder of the regular season, Ian Browne of reports.

Given Ortiz's age (40), it's not a huge surprise that his body has undergone some wear and tear. He will skip his third game in the past six, and it sounds as though he may have played his last contest of the 2015 campaign.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/29/2015) Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder hit his 23rd home run and 28th double as part of a 3 for 4 game with four RBI in Monday's loss to Detroit.

He is hitting a robust .317/.394/.587 in that stretch and has his season line up to .307/.379/.471. Fielder has shown up as a leader for this Rangers squad in its push for the playoffs and will have to be the rock in their lineup for the final six games.
