Mets signed LHP Aaron Laffey to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Laffey posted a 4.56 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 100 2/3 innings this past season for the Blue Jays. The 27-year-old southpaw could open the 2013 season in the Mets' rotation but seems doubtful to carry any fantasy value.

Ryan Raburn needs surgery to repair damaged meniscus in his left knee.

He's done for the year. Raburn was a pleasant surprise for the Indians last season, but he'll finish 2014 with a disappointing .200/.250/.297 batting line and four home runs over 74 games. The 33-year-old is under contract for $2.5 million next season.

Shin-Soo Choo had torn cartilage and a small bone spur removed from his left ankle Wednesday.

Choo should be fully recovered in 6-8 weeks. The 32-year-old already underwent season-ending surgery late last month for bone spurs his left elbow. He'll look to rebound in 2015 from a disappointing first season in Texas where he batted just .242/.340/.374 with 13 home runs and four stolen bases over 123 games.

Brandon Moss is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Rangers.

Moss has homered in back-to-back games, but he'll take a seat against southpaw Derek Holland. Nate Freiman will make the start at first base. Josh Reddick will also sit Wednesday, with Jonny Gomes in left field and Sam Fuld in right.

Josh Hamilton is out of the Angels' lineup Wednesday against the Mariners.

Hamilton went 1-for-3 with a single Tuesday in his first game back from a right shoulder injury. There was no word of a setback, so he's presumably getting a scheduled day off against lefty James Paxton. Collin Cowgill will start in left field Wednesday while Albert Pujols will DH and C.J. Cron plays first base.

Dioner Navarro (head) is out of the Blue Jays' starting lineup on Wednesday versus the Orioles.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons told reporters that Navarro is "a little fuzzy" after taking a foul tip off his mask on Tuesday night. He passed an initial concussion test and is considered day-to-day.

John Lackey (arm) is scheduled to pitch in Friday's series-opener against the Reds.

Lackey was skipped from his last turn after complaining of arm fatigue, but he felt better after a side session on Tuesday. The veteran right-hander has an ugly 5.05 ERA in 46 1/3 innings since joining the Cardinals.
Sep 17 - 5:54 PM

Michael Wacha (shoulder) will return to the Cardinals' rotation Saturday against the Reds.

Wacha reported feeling "great" after a 30-pitch bullpen session on Sunday and then extended himself without issue in another bullpen session Wednesday, so he's been given the go-ahead to pitch this weekend versus the visiting Reds. The 23-year-old right-hander has been battling a shoulder issue since June. The Cardinals want to see what he's capable of before October arrives.
Sep 17 - 5:52 PM

Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) played five innings of defense in a simulated game Wednesday at the Nationals' spring training complex in Viera, Florida.

Zimmerman spent three of those innings at first base and the other two at third, reporting no issues with his hamstring. He's scheduled to DH on Thursday and will then play seven innings of left field on Friday. The Nationals are hoping to have him back on their active roster in some capacity for the final week of the regular season (and then into the playoffs).

Glen Perkins (neck) won't pitch on Wednesday night.

Perkins, who's been dealing with neck discomfort all month, allowed a three-run homer to blow a save opportunity on Tuesday. He was scheduled to be examined by Twins team doctors on Wednesday afternoon. Jared Burton will close if needed Wednesday versus Detroit.

Carlos Beltran is out of the Yankees' starting lineup on Wednesday due to a private family matter.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi isn't divulging any details and told reporters Wednesday that Beltran will be allowed to "take as much time as he needs." The veteran outfielder is back in New York while the Yankees finish up a series at Tropicana Field.
Sep 17 - 5:07 PM

Giancarlo Stanton (face) won't play again this year.

Stanton is making steady progress from the facial fractures and lacerations that he suffered September 11 when he was struck by a Mike Fiers pitch, but the Marlins are going to play it safe with their 24-year-old slugger. He should have a fairly normal offseason and challenge for National League MVP honors again in 2015.
