Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports that the Red Sox continue to show interest in free agent shortstop Stephen Drew.

Drew, 29, batted just .223/.309/.348 in 79 games this summer between the Diamondbacks and Athletics and may prefer a one-year deal in hopes of reestablishing his value before testing free agency again next winter. The Athletics, Tigers, Cardinals and Yankees have also been mentioned as possible suitors.

Edwin Encarnacion helped the Blue Jays rout the Mariners on Tuesday with an RBI single, a bases loaded walk, and a two-run homer.

Encarnacion's first-inning single put the Jays on the board. His bases-loaded walk in the fifth was part of a seven-run outburst. And his sixth-inning two-run homer off of Erasmo Ramirez was the icing on the cake. Encarnacion now has a .272/.359/.561 and 34 home runs, and is three RBI away from notching his third consecutive 100-RBI season.

Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan reports that the Braves have offered John Hart their full-time general manager position.

He was elevated from senior adviser to interim GM on Monday when the team fired Frank Wren. Hart, of course, has tons of past GM experience between the Indians and Rangers. According to Passan, the 66-year-old has told the Braves he "he needed to give it serious thought." Passan adds that Hart would likely groom 35-year-old assistant GM John Coppolella to eventually take over.

Henderson Alvarez was terrific on Tuesday, tossing 7 2/3 shutout innings as the Marlins edged out the Phillies.

Opposing starter Cole Hamels, of all people, was the only Phillie to register an extra-base hit (a double) against Alvarez. Overall, the right-hander yielded five hits and a walk while striking out two. Alvarez has put together a strong season in Miami, now the owner of a 12-6 record with a 2.70 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP and a 108/33 K/BB ratio. He'll make his final start of the season on the road against the Nationals on Sunday.

Joe Mauer exited Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks with a right elbow contusion.

Angel Pagan will undergo season-ending back surgery on Thursday.

The operation will repair a bulging disc and also narrow the nerve canal in Pagan's lower back. He will need three months of rehab. Pagan first began experiencing back trouble in mid-June and missed two months of action before returning last month. He had a setback earlier in September and the Giants have decided it's best for him to go ahead and have the procedure. Gregor Blanco and Juan Perez will handle center field while Pagan is out. The 33-year-old hit .300/.342/.389 with three homers and 16 steals over 96 games this season.

Denard Span exited Tuesday's game versus the Mets after making a diving catch.

Span robbed Matt den Dekker in the top of the third inning with a terrific grab but was then pinch-hit for by Michal Taylor in the bottom of the frame. The Nationals will provide an update on the outfielder's status shortly.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) is not expected to appear in a game before the end of the regular season but remains hopeful of being ready for the playoffs.

Ryu began his throwing program on Saturday but has yet to resume throwing off a mound. The third game of the NLDS isn't until October 6, so the left-hander still has time to get ready if he can progress without any setbacks.

Howie Kendrick is back in the Angels' lineup Tuesday.

Kendrick said out Monday after suffering a minor left hamstring tweak Sunday. The second baseman has been on fire this month with a .394/.442/.620 batting line.

Steve Pearce (wrist) is now expected to return to the Orioles' starting lineup on Thursday.

Pearce received a cortisone shot for his sore right wrist on Saturday and was aiming to return Wednesday, but the AL East champions can afford to give him a little more rest. Pearce is batting .297/.376/.557 with 20 home runs in 98 games this season.

Chris Tillman will start Game 1 of the ALDS for the Orioles.

O's manager Buck Showalter made that announcement on Tuesday evening. Tillman owns a shiny 3.26 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 201 1/3 innings this season for the American League East champions, and he has been especially dominant since the All-Star break.

Xander Bogaerts (neck) was scratched from the Red Sox starting lineup on Tuesday night.

Bogaerts was removed from Sunday's series finale against the Orioles with stiffness in his neck and isn't feeling well enough to start Tuesday's series-opener against the Rays. Jemile Weeks is at shortstop.
