The Rangers might be willing to give a three-year contract to free agent first baseman Adam LaRoche, according to Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com.

The Rangers lost out to the Dodgers on Zack Greinke and the Angels for Josh Hamilton, so they're desperately searching for other ways to improve their roster for 2013. LaRoche, 33, hit .271/.343/.510 with 33 homers and 100 RBI in 154 games this past season for the Nationals while earning Gold Glove honors for his defense. He's only been offered two-year contracts thus far.

Jeimer Candelario (knee) is back in the Tigers' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Royals.

Candelario bruised his right knee over the weekend when he ran into the fence in front of the Tigers' dugout while trying to track down a foul ball, but he's clearly feeling better now. The 23-year-old third baseman will bat cleanup Tuesday versus Kansas City left-hander Jason Vargas.

Miguel Cabrera (back) remains out of the Tigers' starting lineup on Tuesday versus the Royals.

Cabrera was diagnosed over the weekend with two herniated discs in his back and he might not see much playing time -- if any at all -- over the Tigers' final six regular-season games. Efren Navarro is starting at first base and batting seventh Tuesday night against Kansas City left-hander Jason Vargas. John Hicks will DH.

Yoan Moncada (shin) is starting at second base and batting second Tuesday versus the Angels.

Moncada sat out Monday's series opener against Anaheim due to a nagging shin issue. An MRI showed no structural damage and he should be fine for Chicago's final six regular-season games.
Sep 26 - 4:14 PM

Jose Abreu (shin) is back in the White Sox starting lineup Tuesday night against the Angels.

Abreu will start at first base and bat third after missing two games with a sore shin. The 30-year-old slugger is slashing .304/.356/.548 with 31 home runs and 100 RBI in 150 games this season.
Sep 26 - 4:12 PM

Yadier Molina (head) is out of the Cardinals' lineup Tuesday versus the Cubs.

Molina was removed from Monday's series opener after taking consecutive foul tips off his mask in the top of the seventh inning. He did not look to be in very good shape as he slowly made his way off the field and the veteran catcher could very well be done for the remainder of the 2017 regular season. Carson Kelly is starting behind the plate and batting eighth Tuesday night against Chicago.
Sep 26 - 3:47 PM

Aaron Hicks is in Tuesday's lineup against the Rays.

Hicks, fresh off missing most of September with an oblique strain, will bat leadoff in his return. Jacoby Ellsbury and Brett Gardner are both on the bench against lefty Blake Snell while Clint Frazier makes a start in left field.
Sep 26 - 3:38 PM

Daniel Murphy is out of the Nationals' lineup again on Tuesday.

Murphy was held out of Monday's lineup with what manager Dusty Baker described as "general soreness." Apparently he's not quite right just yet, and the Nationals don't have any need to push things this close to the playoffs. Howie Kendrick will play second base.
Sep 26 - 3:35 PM

Bryce Harper (knee) will bat second in his return from the disabled list Tuesday against the Phillies.

Harper has been testing himself in simulated games, but this will be his first real game action since injuring his left knee by slipping on the first base bag back on August 12. It's unclear if he'll play every day the rest of the way, but the Nationals are hoping to get him back in rhythm before the NLDS begins. Harper has mostly hit third this season, so it will be interesting to see if this is what the Nationals have in mind for him for the postseason.
Sep 26 - 3:31 PM

Javier Baez (knee) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Cardinals.

Baez will get some additional rest after fouling a ball off his right knee during Monday's game. Ben Zobrist will start at second base and bat leadoff against Carlos Martinez.
Sep 26 - 3:29 PM

Mookie Betts (wrist) is not in Tuesday's lineup versus the Blue Jays.

Betts was pulled from Monday's game with left wrist discomfort and was scheduled to be examined on Tuesday. Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated that they were just playing things safe, but more should be known about his status soon. Chris Young will make the start in right field.
Sep 26 - 3:14 PM

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Mets will tender a contract to Matt Harvey for next season.

There has been plenty of chatter about Harvey's future amid his struggles and continued injury issues, but Mets general manager Sandy Alderson recently indicated that the Mets were strongly leaning in that direction. The 28-year-old has a miserable 6.60 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in 17 starts and one relief appearance this season, but Heyman hears that the Mets are encouraged by his recent velocity. He's likely to see only a small raise from his $5.125 million salary via arbitration, so it's a worthy gamble to bring him back for his walk year.
