Mike Trout will not play for Team USA in the upcoming 2013 World Baseball Classic.

Trout informed the WBC committee that he wouldn't be participating before he was even asked. The 21-year-old outfielder will enjoy a regular offseason routine before looking to improve upon his amazing rookie campaign.

Dodgers purchased the contract of INF Corey Seager from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Arguably, the top position prospect in all of baseball, the 21-year-old will look to add a spark to the Dodgers push toward the postseason over the final month of the regular season. He's slashing .292/.343/.486 with 18 homers and 74 RBI in 124 games between Double-A and Triple-A this year. Seager is starting at shortstop and batting eighth in his major league debut Thursday evening.

Andrew McCutchen acknowledged Thursday that he's dealing with a "tight Achilles."

McCutchen made sure to say that his knee isn't the issue, but he admitted that he's been feeling "a little sore" and "hobbling around a little bit." He's not in the starting lineup Thursday, but we expect him back for Friday's series opener against the Cardinals.
Sep 3 - 5:15 PM

Daniel Murphy is dealing with a mild strain of his left quad.

Murphy left Wednesday's game with what was described as "mild discomfort" in his quad. He missed some time earlier this year with the same injury and has apparently been playing through it again in recent days. The Mets are calling him day-to-day for now.

Eddie Rosario connected for a grand slam in the third inning of Thursday afternoon's 6-4 loss to the White Sox.

An Eduardo Escobar infield single and a pair of walks issued by White Sox starter Jeff Samardizja set the stage for Rosario to work his grand salami magic with two outs in the third inning. The 23-year-old outfielder is posting one of the sneakier productive seasons in the bigs in 2015, as he maintains a .271/.291/.446 triple-slash with nine homers, 10 triples, 37 RBI and 10 steals.

Nationals manager Matt Williams said that Stephen Strasburg (back) felt fine coming out of his bullpen session Thursday.

Strasburg left his most recent start on Sunday due to discomfort in his upper back and will have his turn skipped on Friday. However, the expectation is that he'll make his return for a crucial series against the first-place Mets early next week.
Sep 3 - 4:30 PM

Michael Taylor (knee) is out again Thursday.

Taylor was a late scratch from Wednesday's series finale against the Cardinals with ongoing discomfort in his right knee. It's not believed to be a serious injury -- the Nationals were calling it a bruise last week -- but Taylor clearly needs at least one more day of rest. Bryce Harper is in center field and Clint Robinson is in left field on Thursday night against the Braves.
Sep 3 - 4:02 PM

Bryce Harper (glute) is in the Nationals' starting lineup on Thursday night against the Braves.

Harper made an early exit from Wednesday's win over the Cardinals with tightness in his left glute. But he looked fine for the four innings he played on Wednesday night and is back in action Thursday for the start of a four-game weekend set against the Braves. It's a very important series for the Nats, who need to make up ground in the NL East quickly.
Sep 3 - 3:59 PM

Mike Moustakas (hamstring) is out again Thursday.

Moustakas has now missed three straight games with a hamstring injury. It's considered minor, but the Royals will take advantage of their massive AL Central lead and give their third baseman an extra day of rest. Cheslor Cuthbert is at third base and batting eighth Thursday evening against Tigers lefty Matt Boyd.
Sep 3 - 3:51 PM

Matt Harvey (dehydration) is expected to be fine.

Harvey was not on the Mets' team flight to Miami after suffering from dehydration at the end of his outing Wednesday against the Phillies, but he should be good to take his next turn in the rotation in Washington, D.C. Harvey has a stellar 2.60 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 158/34 K/BB ratio in 166 1/3 innings this season for New York.
Sep 3 - 1:21 PM

Tim Lincecum underwent season-ending surgery early Thursday morning on his hip.

His recovery timetable is unclear at this point. Lincecum will enter free agency after making zero starts in the second half of the 2015 season, and with a 4.68 ERA over his last four years with San Francisco. The two-time Cy Young Award winner will almost certainly have to settle for a one-year, incentive-laden contract on the open market this winter.
Sep 3 - 12:51 PM

Cardinals GM John Mozeliak acknowledged Wednesday that any contract talks with Jason Heyward will likely have to wait until after the World Series.

"In terms of when we can actually engage, it's really going to be this offseason," the Cardinals general manager told KMOX. It's a no-brainer for Heyward to test the free agent market at this point and he's going to cash in big as a 26-year-old with a range of high-level skills. Heyward is batting .292/.349/.441 in 128 games this season for first-place St. Louis and has continued to play Gold Glove defense in the outfield. He'll have many aggressive, deep-pocketed suitors.
