Padres re-signed RHP Jason Marquis to a one-year, $3 million contract.

It's a decent score for Marquis, whose career appeared to be in jeopardy after he opened 2012 with an 8.47 ERA through seven starts with the Twins. But he rebounded out in San Diego, like many pitchers before him, and should remain a decent option for the Padres in 2013.

Alex Rios (thumb) will not play again this season.

It had been looking that way for a while, and the Rangers officially decided to shut him down on Sunday. The club is not expected to pick up Rios' $14 million option for 2015, so it appears that his tenure in Texas has come to an end. He batted .280/.311/.398 with just four homers over 131 games this season.

Dallas Keuchel has been shut down for the season.

Keuchel has tossed an even 200 innings this season, topping his previous career high of 177 2/3 frames. The left-hander went out in style, throwing eight innings of one-run ball versus the Mariners Saturday to lower his ERA to 2.93. It was a breakout season for Keuchel.

Yankees activated RHP Masahiro Tanaka from the 60-day disabled list.

Tanaka will make his return to the Yankees' rotation on Sunday versus the Blue Jays. He'll be limited to 70-75 pitches and might be a tad rusty given his two-and-a-half month layoff, but fantasy owners can probably go ahead and roll the dice on the right-hander.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Saturday that Angel Pagan (back) is "questionable" to play in the upcoming series versus the Dodgers.

Pagan returned to action Friday but worse, so he's flown to San Diego to have his ailing back examined by team orthopedist Dr. Ken Akizuki. The Giants are fighting for a playoff spot and will obviously do everything they can to get him back in the lineup, but it's possible we won't see much of him in the final week.

Nick Markakis (shoulder) remained out of the lineup Sunday.

Markakis hasn't played since being hit on the right shoulder by a pitch Tuesday. He underwent a precautionary X-ray, which didn't reveal anything serious. The injury not a big concern, as the Orioles are just being cautious since they've already wrapped up the American League East.

Tyson Ross will miss another start after feeling continued soreness in his lower forearm while playing catch Friday.

The Padres have yet to officially rule Ross out for the season, but there's little to no chance we'll see him again. He's already easily set a career high with 195 1/3 innings. Robbie Erlin will get another start in Ross' place on Tuesday versus the Rockies and is a nice streaming option.

Carlos Beltran (elbow) might not play again this season.

Beltran indicated Saturday that he might go ahead and have surgery to remove bone spurs from his right elbow, but while he's decided to delay an operation until the offseason, it's still possible that he might not play over the final week. He'll need 12 weeks to recover once he does go under the knife. The 37-year-old has disappointed with a .233/.301/.402 batting line and 15 homers over 109 games this season.
Sep 21 - 10:29 AM

Jason Heyward (thumb) remained out of the Braves' lineup Sunday.

He hasn't played since suffering a left thumb injury on Wednesday. Heyward remains day-to-day, but there's been no indication as to when he might return to the lineup. Emilio Bonifacio is handling right field on Sunday.

John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer writes that Joey Votto's (quad) return this season is looking "doubtful."

Votto has taken batting practice four straight days and ran the bases on Friday, but, according to Reds manager Bryan Price, he's "not pain-free." The club has little to gain in activating Votto for a handful of games. "He's not 100 percent, and he won't be at any time during the rest of this season," Price said. "So the question is, do we want to play him at less than 100 percent? He still hasn't seen any live pitching."

Jimmy Rollins (hamstring) has been ruled out through the weekend.

Rollins had been hoping to play in his hometown of Oakland, but he tested out his strained left hamstring on Saturday and evidently still isn't feeling good enough for game action. Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg was non-committal when asked if Rollins would play again this season. "We'll see," Sandberg said. "We'll see how he does and how he goes. I'm not going one way or another on it. Just watching the progress."

Mike Trout had a productive night at the plate, going 2-for-3 with a walk, a triple, a two-run home run, and three runs scored in Saturday's win against the Rangers.

Trout by himself accounted for four of the Angels' eight runs on the evening. He came to bat in the seventh inning needing a double for the cycle but struck out looking. Nevertheless, Trout bumps his slash line up to .290/.379/.568 with 35 home runs, 109 RBI, 14 stolen bases, and 112 runs scored.
