MLB Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Pence was scratched from the Giants' lineup for Tuesday's game with Milwaukee due to a tight hamstring.
Impact: The two teams play a day game on Wednesday, so the possibility exists that Pence could sit out again. The veteran has had a recent resurgence at the plate, recording a .347 average and a 1.106 OPS while reaching base safely in 19 straight starts.
News: Kepler was held out of Tuesday's game against the White Sox with flu-like symptoms.
Impact: It's unclear whether he'll be healthy enough to go for Wednesday's contest. Kepler has been on a very nice run, batting .300 (15 for 50) with five homers and 12 RBIs over his last 13 games.
News: Parra was scratched from the Rockies' lineup for Tuesday's game at Kansas City due to a right thigh contusion.
Impact: Parra was still sore after being hit by a pitch Sunday against Milwaukee. The outfielder did come on as a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning, however, so he could be good to go for Wedneday's matchup. The Rockies hope so, as he's hitting .372 in 35 games since coming off the DL on July 7.
News: Nick Pivetta fell to 4-9, allowing six runs on seven hits and one walk in 1.1 innings, as the Philadelphia Phillies lost to the Miami Marlins 7-4 on Tuesday. Pivetta struck out two, ending the game with a 6.73 ERA and 1.54 WHIP on the season.
Impact: Recalled from Triple A to start the second game of this doubleheader, Pivetta could remain in the rotation for the time being with Zach Eflin going on the disabled list. With a wretched 14.49 ERA over his last four starts, the rookie shouldn't be on any fantasy rosters, however.
News: Jose Urena improved to 12-5, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks in 5.0 innings, as the Miami Marlins defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 7-4 on Tuesday. Urena struck out five, ending the game with a 3.68 ERA and 1.22 WHIP on the season.
Impact: Urena was reached for a pair of homers but was otherwise solid in improving to 5-1 over his past seven starts. The 25-year-old owns a 3.12 ERA during that stretch and next gets the Nationals on the road on Monday. He beat Washington with eight innings of one-run, three-hit ball in Miami back on July 31.
News: Kyle Barraclough allowed one hit without giving up a run in 2.0 innings as the Miami Marlins defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 7-4 on Tuesday. Barraclough struck out two, ending the game with a 3.18 ERA and 1.43 WHIP on the season.
Impact:
News: Brad Ziegler recorded his seventh save, allowing no runs on one hit in 1.0 inning, as the Miami Marlins defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 7-4 on Tuesday. Ziegler did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 4.97 ERA and 1.66 WHIP on the season.
Impact: The veteran has been a revelation since returning from a back injury on Aug. 1, converting all seven of his save chances and throwing a combined nine scoreless innings. With the Marlins having a great month as well, Ziegler's fantasy stock continues to rise.
News: Andres Blanco went 1 for 3 with a home run and two RBIs Tuesday as the Philadelphia Phillies fell to the Miami Marlins 7-4. The homer was his third of the season. He ended the game with a .174 batting average.
Impact: Blanco entered this doubleheader with one home run in 111 at-bats this season, but he connected for two-run shots in both games in one of the more unlikely fantasy lines of the day. It's unlikely that the light-hitting veteran has suddenly morphed into a serious power threat, however.
News: Christian Yelich went 1 for 5 with a home run and four RBIs Tuesday as the Miami Marlins topped the Philadelphia Phillies 7-4. The homer was his 14th of the season. Yelich scored twice. He ended the game with a .284 batting average.
Impact: After collecting three hits and knocking in a run in the opener of this doubleheader, Yelich tied a season high for RBIs in a game. He's locked in right now, having gone 7 for 15 with seven RBIs over his last seven contests and producing six multihit efforts in his past 11 outings.
News: Dee Gordon went 2 for 5 Tuesday as the Miami Marlins topped the Philadelphia Phillies 7-4. Gordon scored twice. He ended the game with a .292 batting average.
Impact: Miami's leadoff man finished the doubleheader 3 for 10 with three runs scored and has now hit safely in nine of his 10 meetings with the Phillies this season, posting a .318 average (14 for 44) with nine runs scored. Gordon has scored seven times in his last four overall games as well.
News: Nick Williams went 1 for 4 with a home run and an RBI Tuesday as the Philadelphia Phillies lost to the Miami Marlins 7-4. The homer was his seventh of the season. He ended the game with a .283 batting average.
Impact:
News: Hyun Soo Kim went 1 for 2 Tuesday as the Philadelphia Phillies lost to the Miami Marlins 7-4. Kim scored once. He ended the game with a .226 batting average.
Impact: Kim started both games of Tuesday's doubleheader and went 3 for 6 with two runs scored. He's still hitting .205 with one RBI in 18 games since joining the Phillies via trade on July 28, and likely won't be seeing a great deal of playing time once rosters expand in September.
News: Giancarlo Stanton went 1 for 5 Tuesday as the Miami Marlins beat the Philadelphia Phillies 7-4. He ended the game with a .287 batting average.
Impact:
News: Maikel Franco went 1 for 2 with a double Tuesday as the Philadelphia Phillies fell to the Miami Marlins 7-4. He ended the game with a .224 batting average.
Impact:
News: Derek Dietrich went 2 for 5 Tuesday as the Miami Marlins beat the Philadelphia Phillies 7-4. Dietrich scored once. He ended the game with a .248 batting average.
Impact:
News: Tommy Joseph went 1 for 4 with a home run and an RBI Tuesday as the Philadelphia Phillies lost to the Miami Marlins 7-4. The homer was his 18th of the season. He ended the game with a .239 batting average.
Impact: Entering this doubleheader 5 for 56 with one extra-base hit over his previous 16 games, Joseph had a much-needed breakthrough by homering in both contests while finishing the twinbill 3 for 8 with three runs scored.
News: Marcell Ozuna went 1 for 4 with a home run and two RBIs Tuesday as the Miami Marlins topped the Philadelphia Phillies 7-4. The homer was his 29th of the season. He ended the game with a .307 batting average.
Impact: Ozuna also went deep in the opener of this doubleheader and finished the twinbill 3 for 8 with four RBIs and three runs scored. The standout center fielder has now knocked in at least one run in six straight games and is hitting .364 (12 for 33) with three homers and nine RBIs over his last nine outings.
News: J.T. Realmuto went 3 for 5 with two doubles Tuesday as the Miami Marlins beat the Philadelphia Phillies 7-4. He ended the game with a .290 batting average.
Impact: Realmuto entered Tuesday's doubleheader in a 6-for-44 slump, but he broke out with a banner day that included a three-run homer in the opener. The catcher has always put up big numbers at Citizens Bank Park, where he's batting .348 in 19 career games.
News: Rhys Hoskins went 1 for 3 Tuesday as the Philadelphia Phillies lost to the Miami Marlins 7-4. He ended the game with a .244 batting average.
Impact: Hoskins homered in the opener of this doubleheader but wasn't able to extend his streak of going deep to four straight games. The rookie has been as good as advertised from a power perspective, though, as he's amassed six homers and 10 RBIs along with a .313 average (10 for 32) over his last nine outings.
News: Freddy Galvis went 0 for 3 Tuesday as the Philadelphia Phillies fell to the Miami Marlins 7-4. He ended the game with a .255 batting average.
Impact:
News: Jorge Alfaro went 1 for 4 Tuesday as the Philadelphia Phillies fell to the Miami Marlins 7-4. He ended the game with a .333 batting average.
Impact: Alfaro has now hit safely in each of his eight games since being promoted from Triple A on Aug. 4. The promising young catcher's game-calling skills still aren't on par with his bat, though, therefore he'll likely continue to share time with veteran Cameron Rupp.
News: Cameron Rupp went 0 for 1 Tuesday as the Philadelphia Phillies lost to the Miami Marlins 7-4. He ended the game with a .233 batting average.
Impact:
News: Marco Gonzales fell to 0-1, allowing two runs on six hits and three walks in 4.2 innings, as the Seattle Mariners lost to the Atlanta Braves 4-0 on Tuesday. Gonzales struck out five, ending the game with a 7.40 ERA and 1.79 WHIP on the season.
Impact: Gonzales wasn't terrible in this start, but he still isn't making the grade since joining the Mariners' rotation earlier this month. The in-season pickup has a 6.23 ERA in four starts with Seattle and hasn't completed five innings in any of them.
News: Lucas Sims improved to 2-3, allowing three hits and two walks over 6.0 scoreless innings, as the Atlanta Braves defeated the Seattle Mariners 4-0 on Tuesday. Sims struck out four, ending the game with a 4.13 ERA and 1.34 WHIP on the season.
Impact: After being introduced to the majors with a three-start losing streak, Sims has won his past two while yielding just two runs in 11 innings. The 23-year-old should be entering his next start with plenty of confidence, even more so because it comes against the MLB-worst Phillies.
News: Jose Ramirez allowed one hit without giving up a run in 1.0 inning as the Atlanta Braves defeated the Seattle Mariners 4-0 on Tuesday. Ramirez did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 2.41 ERA and 1.01 WHIP on the season.
Impact:
News: Arodys Vizcaino allowed one hit and one walk without giving up a run in 0.2 innings as the Atlanta Braves defeated the Seattle Mariners 4-0 on Tuesday. Vizcaino struck out one, ending the game with a 2.15 ERA and 1.02 WHIP on the season.

Impact:
News: Dansby Swanson went 1 for 3 Tuesday as the Atlanta Braves topped the Seattle Mariners 4-0. He ended the game with a .221 batting average.
Impact:
News: Ben Gamel went 0 for 3 Tuesday as the Seattle Mariners fell to the Atlanta Braves 4-0. He ended the game with a .292 batting average.
Impact: Pitchers couldn't get Gamel out back in June, but he's been more or less a liability at the plate since the All-Star break. That's especially been the case over the last three weeks, as he's hitting .149 (10 for 67) with two extra-base hits in his past 19 games.
News: Ender Inciarte went 1 for 4 Tuesday as the Atlanta Braves beat the Seattle Mariners 4-0. He ended the game with a .298 batting average.
Impact:
News: Jean Segura went 0 for 3 Tuesday as the Seattle Mariners fell to the Atlanta Braves 4-0. He ended the game with a .308 batting average.
Impact: Segura is just 2 for 21 on this road trip and has really scuffled away from home in August, going 6 for 48 (.125) in 12 games this month. He's 2 for 2 lifetime off Wednesday's starter R.A. Dickey, however, so perhaps the speedy shortstop can get untracked in the series finale.
News: Kyle Seager went 1 for 4 Tuesday as the Seattle Mariners lost to the Atlanta Braves 4-0. He ended the game with a .255 batting average.
Impact:
News: Nelson Cruz went 0 for 4 Tuesday as the Seattle Mariners lost to the Atlanta Braves 4-0. He ended the game with a .292 batting average.
Impact: Cruz got a somewhat surprising start in right field with the DH unavailable in the NL park. Now 1 for 17 when playing the outfield this season, don't expect the slugger to be in the lineup for Wednesday's finale.
News: Robinson Cano went 1 for 3 with a double Tuesday as the Seattle Mariners lost to the Atlanta Braves 4-0. He ended the game with a .274 batting average.
Impact:
News: Ozzie Albies went 1 for 3 Tuesday as the Atlanta Braves beat the Seattle Mariners 4-0. Albies scored once. He ended the game with a .229 batting average.
Impact: After starting his promising major league career with a .179 average through 16 games, Albies is 6 for 14 with four extra-base hits and five runs scored during a four-game hitting streak. The 20-year-old should get plenty of opportunity to show further improvement as the season winds down.
News: Freddie Freeman went 2 for 3 with an RBI Tuesday as the Atlanta Braves beat the Seattle Mariners 4-0. Freeman scored once. He ended the game with a .327 batting average.
Impact: The standout first baseman has kept on raking during an 11-game hitting streak in which he's batting .404 (19 for 47). That hot stretch hasn't coincided with a rise in run production, though, as Freeman has just one homer and five RBIs in his past 13 contests.
News: Tyler Flowers went 0 for 3 Tuesday as the Atlanta Braves beat the Seattle Mariners 4-0. He ended the game with a .289 batting average.
Impact:
News: Brandon Phillips went 1 for 4 Tuesday as the Atlanta Braves topped the Seattle Mariners 4-0. Phillips scored once and stole a base. He ended the game with a .289 batting average.
Impact: Phillips extended his hitting streak to eight games and he's batting .326 (15 for 46) with two homers and nine runs scored over his last 10 contests. The veteran second baseman has been especially good at home since the All-Star break, posting a .355 average in 18 games at SunTrust Park.
News: Jesse Winker went 1 for 1 with a home run and an RBI Tuesday as the Cincinnati Reds lost to the Chicago Cubs 13-9. The homer was his fourth of the season. He ended the game with a .296 batting average.

Impact:
News: Eugenio Suarez went 3 for 5 with two home runs and five RBIs Tuesday as the Cincinnati Reds lost to the Chicago Cubs 13-9. The homers were his 22nd and 23rd of the season. Suarez scored three times. He ended the game with a .270 batting average.
Impact: Suarez has hit in 12 of his last 13 games, batting .405 with five homers and 15 RBIs.
News: Javier Baez went 2 for 5 with two RBIs Tuesday as the Chicago Cubs beat the Cincinnati Reds 13-9. Baez scored twice. He ended the game with a .270 batting average.

Impact:
News: Nick Markakis went 2 for 4 with a home run and two RBIs Tuesday as the Atlanta Braves topped the Seattle Mariners 4-0. The homer was his eighth of the season. He ended the game with a .284 batting average.
Impact: Markakis is locked in right now, posting a .400 average (14 for 35) with two homers, eight RBIs and seven runs scored over a nine-game stretch. The former American Leaguer has been good against NL clubs this season, going 9 for 24 with four RBIs in six games.
News: Alex Avila went 2 for 3 with an RBI Tuesday as the Chicago Cubs beat the Cincinnati Reds 13-9. Avila scored twice. He ended the game with a .273 batting average.

Impact:
News: Mike Zunino went 2 for 3 Tuesday as the Seattle Mariners fell to the Atlanta Braves 4-0. He ended the game with a .224 batting average.
Impact: The strikeout-prone catcher is on a good recent run, going 8 for 21 (.381) with a homer and three doubles over his last eight games. Zunino is still hitting just .200 with 13 RBIs in 39 games since the start of July, though.

News: Anthony Rizzo went 2 for 3 with a double and an RBI Tuesday as the Chicago Cubs beat the Cincinnati Reds 13-9. Rizzo scored three times. He ended the game with a .271 batting average.
Impact: Rizzo, who played third base for the first time in his career, is 14 for 31 with two homers and 14 RBIs in his last eight games. Rizzo didn't get any balls hit his way in his role as only the third left-handed third baseman in Cubs history. George Decker and Jimmy Ryan also played there in the 1800s.
News: Matthew Boyd fell to 5-7, allowing seven runs on seven hits and three walks in 2.1 innings, as the Detroit Tigers lost to the New York Yankees 13-4 on Tuesday. Boyd struck out two, ending the game with a 6.24 ERA and 1.75 WHIP on the season.
Impact: Boyd's first start since Aug. 13 didn't last long as he was tagged for three first-inning runs and four more in the third. The lefty has had a terrible month, having gone 0-2 with a 10.13 ERA and allowing a .378 opposing batting average in five appearances.

Impact:
News: Todd Frazier went 3 for 5 with a triple and two RBIs Tuesday as the New York Yankees beat the Detroit Tigers 13-4. Frazier scored twice. He ended the game with a .216 batting average.
Impact: Frazier also had a three-hit game back on Aug. 9, but he went 6 for 33 (.182) in between those two big nights. The third baseman's bat has come to life recently, though, as he's 6 for 13 with two homers, five RBIs and six runs scored over his past four outings.
News: Aaron Judge went 1 for 1 with an RBI Tuesday as the New York Yankees topped the Detroit Tigers 13-4. Judge scored twice. He ended the game with a .284 batting average.
Impact: Judge walked in his other three at-bats as his MLB-record 37-game streak with at least one strikeout finally came to an end. Despite his contact issues and .173 average over his last 22 games, the towering outfielder sports a .361 on-base percentage during that span by having walked 21 times.
News: Aaron Hicks went 2 for 6 with a home run and three RBIs Tuesday as the New York Yankees beat the Detroit Tigers 13-4. The homer was his 13th of the season. Hicks scored twice. He ended the game with a .267 batting average.
Impact: Hicks is just 9 for 51 (.176) since coming off the DL on Aug. 10, but three of those hits have been homers and he's knocked in eight runs in those 12 games. Tuesday's blast was just his third home run on the road, though.

News: Tyler Austin went 1 for 3 with two RBIs Tuesday as the New York Yankees topped the Detroit Tigers 13-4. Austin scored once. He ended the game with a .259 batting average.
Impact: Austin has been getting his name in the lineup lately and producing, as he's 5 for 14 with a home run and five RBIs in four games since being called up from the minors. Matt Holliday is expected to return soon, so the 26-year-old's time as the Yankees' regular DH still could be short-lived.
News: Homer Bailey allowed one hit and one walk without giving up a run in 3.0 innings as the Cincinnati Reds lost to the Chicago Cubs 13-9 on Tuesday. Bailey struck out two, ending the game with a 7.99 ERA and 1.97 WHIP on the season.

Impact: It's the fourth multihit effort in seven games for the standout shortstop, who's hitting .362 (25 for 69) over his last 17 contests to bring his season average back above the .300 mark. Gregorius could be set up for more success in Wednesday's matchup, as he's 4 for 13 with a home run lifetime off Tigers starter Jordan Zimmermann.
