Angels' Albert Pujols: Remains out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/28/2016) Pujols (foot) remains out of the lineup Wednesday against the A's, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

Pujols has been hampered by a sore foot and will miss a second straight start, affording Mike Trout another day as the DH. Manager Mike Scioscia said Tuesday that he wasn't sure if Pujols will play again in 2016, as the injury has "gotten to a point now where we don't want to put him at risk." The Angels are off Thursday.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/27/2016) Morneau homered and knocked in three in a 2-for-3 game Monday against the Rays.

Morneau was hitting a brutal .224/.296/.306 without a home run in 14 games in September before Monday's slump-busting performance. He owns just a .258/.296/.437 line on the year. Morneau has already said he is undecided on his playing status for 2017, and his performance this year hasn't suggested he has much left in the tank.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/25/2016) Cruz was removed from Sunday's game against the Mariners in the top of the eighth inning with an apparent left wrist soreness, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

Cruz hit a pair of solo home runs in his first three at-bats of the game to boost his total to 41 for the season, but he appeared to hurt his hand on the second of the two blasts. Seth Smith entered the game to pinch hit for Cruz, who will be listed as day-to-day heading into the Mariners' series with the Astros that begins Monday.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/25/2016) Morales went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, walk and two runs overall in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Tigers.

The veteran slugger hit the 30-homer mark for only the second time in his career and first time since 2009 with his eighth round-tripper of September. Morales also has a whopping 27 RBI during the month, propelling him to a second straight season with at least 90 runs driven in. Following Saturday's production, the 33-year-old is hitting .337 (28-for-83) in September, a tally that includes seven multi-hit efforts.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Blasts moonshot for homer in second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/24/2016) Cruz went 2-for-4 with a double, a mammoth home run and two RBI in Saturday's loss to Minnesota.

The veteran launched one into the third deck -- estimated at 454 feet -- for his 39th homer, moving him up to sixth in MLB this season. Now that he spends most of his time as a designated hitter, perhaps the 36-year-old can continue put up elite production for a few more years to come as 40-year-old David Ortiz has.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/24/2016) Alvarez went 1-for-5 with a solo homer in Friday's 3-2 extra-inning victory over the D-backs.

The veteran slugger broke the ice on a dismal offensive performance up to that point by taking reliever Enrique Burgos deep with a 407-foot shot to right in the eighth, kick-starting the Orioles' comeback. Despite the homer Friday and some modest success making hard contact during the month, Alvarez is struggling overall in September, as evidenced by his .195 average over 41 at-bats.
