Yasiel Puig (hamstring) remains out of the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Cardinals.
Puig was used as a pinch-hitter in Friday's extra-innings marathon, but he isn't ready to return to the outfield and probably won't start Sunday either. He tweaked his right hamstring Thursday afternoon in D.C.
Matt Wieters (foot) is hoping to return to the Orioles' starting lineup on Monday.
Wieters has been out all week with a bruised foot. Caleb Joseph is doing the filling in at catcher.
Hyun Soo Kim (hamstring) is expected to begin a rehab assignment soon with Double-A Bowie.
He'll likely play two games there and then rejoin the O's when first eligible on Tuesday. Kim has been on the disabled list since July 19, retroactive to July 11, with a strained right hamstring.
Nelson Cruz had a monster day at the dish on Saturday, blasting two long balls and plating seven runs in a 14-5 rout of the Blue Jays.
Cruz got the party started in the third inning with a grand slam off of Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey. He then capped off the offense for the M's with a towering three-run shot off Drew Storen in the eighth. He finished the afternoon 2-for-5 and is now hitting an impressive .288/.372/.548 with 25 homers and 65 RBI on the year.
Hisashi Iwakuma was staked to a huge lead early on Saturday and cruised through six innings of two-run ball in an easy victory over the Blue Jays.
The Mariners provided him with 11 runs of support in the ballgame, making it so all Iwakuma had to do was throw strikes and avoid any major rallies against him. All told, he surrendered just four hits and three walks while striking out three. Now 11-6 on the season, he'll carry a 3.96 ERA and 1.28 WHIP into Saturday's start against the Cubs at Wrigley Field.
Michael Saunders belted his 18th and 19th home runs of the season in a losing effort against the Mariners.
Saunders has now homered in each of his first two games against his former ballclub. His solo shot off Hisashi Iwakuma in the sixth inning did nothing more than putting a band aid on a stab wound, pulling the Jays to within nine runs at 11-2. He then tagged Wade LeBlanc for a solo shot with two outs in the eighth, making it a 14-3 ballgame. Saunders is having a monster season in the middle of the Jays lineup, slashing .286/.363/.542 with 19 homers and 46 RBI.
R.A. Dickey was blasted in Saturday's loss to the Mariners, allowing six runs on seven hits in three-plus innings of work.
The veteran knuckleballer walked two and struck out three in the contest. It was his shortest outing in 122 starts as a member of the Blue Jays. The big blow against him came on a grand slam off the bat of Nelson Cruz in the third inning. After two consecutive rough outings, Dickey now sports a disappointing 4.44 ERA and 1.34 WHIP on the season. He'll look to get back on track on when he takes on the Orioles at home on Friday.
Ubaldo Jimenez has been excused from the Orioles with his wife going into labor.
Jimenez could be placed on the paternity leave list if his absence lasts longer than a day or two. The right-hander hasn't appeared in a game for the O's since July 8, when he yielded five earned runs in 1 1/3 innings.
