Twins activated RHP Matt Capps from the 15-day disabled list.

The right-hander will be back in the Twins' bullpen on Monday night, though he might not see a save chance for the rest of the season because of how effective Glen Perkins was in his absence. Capps has a 3.81 ERA and 18/4 K/BB ratio in 28 1/3 innings this year for Minnesota.

Reds signed C Tucker Barnhart to a four-year, $15.5 million contract extension with a $7.5 million club option for 2022.

The buyout on the option is $500,000, so he's guaranteed at least $16 million with his new contract. Barnhart had been set for his first year of arbitration eligibility this offseason, but now he's locked up for at least one and possibly two free agent years. The 26-year-old has hit a solid .264/.336/.389 over the last two seasons for the Reds and has rated very well in terms of defensive metrics both years. The Reds owe Devin Mesoraco $13.125 million in 2018 in his last year under contract, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see them try to unload him this winter.

Kris Bryant went 3-for-4 with a game-winning, two-run home run in the 10th inning to lead the Cubs past the Brewers 5-3 on Thursday.

Oliver Drake threw Bryant a high, straight, 91-mph fastball, and the slugger knew what to do with it, crushing it out to the deepest part of the ballpark. The homer was Bryant's 28th of the season, giving him 69 RBI and 105 runs scored. He's been especially hot since the start of the Mets series eight days ago, going 13-for-33 with three doubles, three homers, 10 RBI and 10 runs scored to raise his overall line to .292/.406/.536.

Joe Mauer went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored to help the Twins beat up on the Tigers 12-1 on Thursday.

Mauer bopped a two-run double in the sixth inning to extend the Twins' lead, one of the team's 14 hits on the night. It's no surprise that Mauer had three of them, as he's been lighting the world on fire this month. Coming into Thursday's game, the 34-year-old was hitting .375/.418/.514 in September, and after it he's batting .311/.388/.427 overall. In a year with some really terrific reclamation projects, none are better to see than Mauer's.
Sep 22 - 1:28 AM

Dexter Fowler finished 3-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base as the Cardinals outlasted the Reds 8-5 on Thursday.

Fowler had three of the Cardinals' 14 hits on the night, the fourth time in his last five games he's collected multiple hits. He's also driven in multiple runs in each of his last four contests. The hot stretch has the Cardinals' middle-of-the-order hitter batting .270/.367/.504 with 18 homers, 61 RBI, 67 runs scored and six steals in 111 games this year.

Cole Hamels was dominant in Thursday's victory over the Mariners, allowing just one run on three hits over eight strong innings.

The veteran left-hander struck out eight on the night while issuing two free passes. The only mistake that he made was a solo homer by Nelson Cruz in the seventh inning. Now 11-4 on the season, he'll bring a 3.80 ERA and 1.14 WHIP into Tuesday's matchup against the Astros.
Sep 22 - 1:05 AM

Clayton Richard was outstanding in Thursday's victory over the Rockies, racking up eight strikeouts over 7 1/3 innings of scoreless baseball.

The veteran southpaw scattered seven hits and a walk in the contest. He immediately rewarded the Padres for their faith in him after inking a two-year contract extension on Tuesday. He'll look to further improve upon his 4.63 ERA and 1.50 WHIP when he wraps up his season against the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
Sep 22 - 12:59 AM

R.A. Dickey allowed two runs on four hits over eight innings, and the Braves edged the Nationals 3-2 on Thursday.

Ryan Zimmerman jumped on a high knuckler in the second inning for a solo homer, but Dickey pretty effectively perplexed the Nats over the rest of his tenure. To that end, he struck out four without issuing a walk in his eight innings. Those starts have been rare in recent weeks, as he carried a 10.05 September ERA into Thursday's outing. The 42-year-old is 10-10 with a 4.32 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in 30 starts overall, and he'll square off with the Mets on Tuesday.
Sep 22 - 12:37 AM

Gabriel Ynoa allowed a run on five hits over eight innings to lead the Orioles to a 3-1 win over the Rays on Thursday.

In a game they desperately needed to keep their playoff hopes alive, Ynoa delivered a gem for the O's, allowing only a third inning RBI single and nothing more. He walked two and struck out three, relying on 13 ground balls to cut through the Rays on just 94 pitches through his eight innings. Ynoa is now 2-2 with a 3.41 ERA and 1.29 WHIP through eight appearances, including three starts. The 24-year-old will surely be entrusted with another, regardless of the Orioles' playoff chances at the time, and that start is likely to come Wednesday against the Pirates in a rare late-season interleague matchup.
Sep 21 - 11:57 PM

Jason Vargas hurled 6 1/3 scoreless innings as the Royals shut out the Blue Jays 1-0 on Thursday.

Vargas gave up a pair of singles and walked three but didn't allow any damage, the first time in the season's second half that he's exited a start without allowing a run. That was good for his 17th win of the year, and his third in a row. The southpaw is 17-10 with a 4.03 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in 30 starts this year. He'll try keep rolling Tuesday against the struggling Tigers.
Sep 21 - 11:07 PM

Jacob deGrom's next start has been pushed back to Sunday due to flu-like symptoms.

The right-hander has dealt with nausea and an upset stomach for the last few days, so the Mets will adjust their schedule a bit to give deGrom ample time for recovery. Robert Gsellman will now start Friday's series opener against the Nationals and Matt Harvey will go Saturday.
Sep 21 - 3:33 PM

Ender Inciarte (thumb) is back in the Braves' starting lineup Thursday night against the Nationals.

Inciarte exited Tuesday's game with lingering soreness in his left thumb and he remained sidelined on Wednesday, but the rangy 26-year-old will start in center field and hit leadoff Thursday versus Nats right-hander Tanner Roark. Inciarte has a .304 batting average with 11 home runs and 22 stolen bases in 146 games this season.
