Yankees signed 1B Dan Johnson to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Johnson batted .267/.388/.492 with 28 home runs and 85 RBI in 137 games last season at Triple-A Charlotte -- an affiliate of the White Sox. The 33-year-old will probably open 2013 at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Hunter Renfroe hit a three-run homer in the Padres' 4-2 win over the Diamondbacks on Monday.

Renfroe was just called up from Triple-A El Paso on Monday afternoon and he went yard in his first plate appearance back at Petco Park, giving the Friars an early 3-0 lead. The 25-year-old mashed the ball during his month-long stay in the minors and could carry sneaky fantasy value over these crucial final weeks as a legitimate power threat.

David Peralta left Monday night's game against the Padres after experiencing tightness in his right quad.

Peralta was 1-for-2 with an RBI single and a walk before getting lifted in the sixth inning. He'll be reevaluated on Tuesday. This is obviously a bad time of the year for any type of injury, minor or major.

Dustin Pedroia (nose) could undergo a CAT scan Tuesday.

Pedroia on Monday was hit by a foul ball that bounced off the ground and struck him in the nose. The preliminary diagnosis was a nasal contusion, but if he's still really sore Tuesday he could be sent for more tests.

Matt Olson hit yet another homer in the Athletics' 8-3 win over the Tigers on Monday.

It was a two-run shot in the top of the third inning off Tigers starter Buck Farmer. Olson now has a whopping 18 home runs and 33 RBI over his last 31 games and he boasts a terrific 1.023 OPS for the season. The rookie first baseman also drew two walks Monday night in Detroit, finishing 1-for-3 with two RBI and two runs scored.

Aaron Judge hit his 44th homer Monday as the Yankees edged the Twins 2-1.

Judge belted a solo shot off Ervin Santana in the first inning and then went 0-for-3 over the rest of the night. The homer was his 44th, and with the way he's going right now, he has a shot at 50. That would overtake Mark McGwire's all-time rookie record of 49.
Sep 18 - 10:58 PM

Giancarlo Stanton finished 2-for-5 with a homer, four RBI, and three runs scored in the Marlins' 13-1 rout of the Mets on Monday.

Stanton drew a walk and scored on a wild pitch in the bottom of the third inning, hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the fourth inning, and added an RBI single in the bottom of the fifth. He's now up to 55 home runs and 117 RBI on the season with 12 games to play. Three of those games are at Coors Field.

Aaron Altherr hit the first grand slam ever surrendered by Clayton Kershaw to give the Phillies all of their runs in a 4-3 win over the Dodgers on Monday.

The no-doubt bomb was the first homer hit by Altherr since he came off the disabled list earlier this month. Including his final six games before getting hurt, he had been without a homer -- and with just seven hits total -- in 44 at-bats since July 29.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts admitted Monday that Corey Seager's right elbow is "not 100 percent," but the shortstop is trying to "manage it."

Roberts added that he's been told by the team's medical staff that Seager's injury "is playable." The skipper still wouldn't reveal exactly what the nature of Seager's injury is, although there's been speculation that he's dealing with a bone spur or bone chips. He'll probably have surgery in the offseason but will have to play through some pain down the stretch. It seems like something that only affects Seager when he throws, so his hitting shouldn't be an issue. Seager is not starting Monday in what Roberts says will be the shortstop's final day off of the season.
Sep 18 - 5:32 PM

Miguel Cabrera (back) is back in the Tigers' lineup Monday.

Cabrera sat out Sunday after exiting Saturday's game with lower back tightness. It's something that's plagued him for basically all season and he might need extra days off down the stretch, but there are no plans to shut him down. He's in the designated hitter spot Monday, with Efren Navarro covering first base.
Sep 18 - 4:24 PM

The Pirates have shut down Francisco Cervelli (quad) for the remainder of the regular season.

Cervelli suffered a quad injury in late August and the team doesn't want him to push things with only 12 games on the calendar. "The reality is we've run out of time," said Pirates manager Clint Hurdle. He'll finish the year with a .249/.342/.370 batting line with five homers and 31 RBI over 81 games. His salary jumps to $10.5 million next year.
Sep 18 - 4:00 PM

J.T. Realmuto is absent from Monday's lineup against the Mets.

He's just getting a breather. Tomas Telis will start behind the dish and catch Dan Straily. He's batting second against right-hander Matt Harvey.
