Todd Helton apologized Sunday for his DUI arrest.

Helton was found stumbling out of a gas station at 2:30 a.m. earlier this month, having consumed multiple cups of wine. "Last week I got behind the wheel of my truck after I had drank," the 39-year-old first baseman told reporters in Rockies camp. "All I can do now is apologize and ask for forgiveness. I spoke to my teammates today, and they were very supportive. ... I am determined to learn from my mistakes, and I've gotten help."

Adrian Gonzalez (sinus infection) is in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres.

Gonzalez was lifted midway through Tuesday's contest due to a sinus infection. The ailment was not burdensome enough to require an additional day off, though. He is batting in his customary fourth spot on Wednesday.

Gregory Polanco is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs due to a stiff neck.

Starling Marte (back) is being held out of the lineup again as the Pirates face the Cubs on Wednesday.

Marte said on Tuesday that he is uncertain whether he will be able to start another game this season. He has been fighting through back tightness and back spasms for most of September. Josh Bell draws the start in right field and will bat second.

Kyle Seager went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer in the Mariners' 12-4 rout of the Astros on Wednesday.

Seattle's offense managed 15 hits and seven walks to down the 'Stros and stay alive in the American League Wild Card race. Seager singled in the Mariners' three-run first inning and then produced the final scoring of the game with a three-run shot off Pat Neshek in the top of the eighth. The star third baseman is slashing .281/.362/.506 with 30 home runs and 99 RBI in 154 games this season.

Joe Mauer (quad) will be available to hit off the bench when the Twins face the Royals on Wednesday.

Seth Smith was lifted for a pinch-runner after being hit in the foot during Wednesday's game against the Astros.

Cubs signed president of baseball operations Theo Epstein to a five-year contract extension.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale is reporting that the extension will be in excess of $50 million. Since joining the Cubs in 2011, Epstein has steadily built the club into a World Series favorite. This season, the Cubbies have run away with the NL Central. Their record currently sits at 101-56. In addition to Epstein, GM Jed Hoyer and vice president Jason McLeod are also being awarded extensions.

Nick Castellanos is starting at third base and batting seventh Wednesday versus the Indians.

It will be his first start for the Tigers since August 6, when the young third baseman suffered a fractured left hand on a hit-by-pitch. Castellanos smacked a pinch-hit double and scored a run Tuesday in his first action off the disabled list. He looks to be fully healthy.
Sep 28 - 3:18 PM

Daniel Murphy (glute) is out of the Nationals' starting lineup again on Wednesday.

Murphy hasn't started a game since September 17 due to a strained left glute and he might not see much action over the Nationals' final handful of regular-season tilts, though he should be ready to rock for the NLDS. Trea Turner is starting at second base and batting leadoff on Wednesday night against Diamondbacks righty Shelby Miller.
Sep 28 - 3:07 PM

Bryce Harper (thumb) remains out of the Nationals' lineup on Wednesday night.

Harper hasn't appeared in a game since injuring his left thumb on an awkward slide into third base Sunday against the Pirates. X-rays taken Monday came back negative and he should be fine for the start of the NLDS. Brian Goodwin will handle right field and bat sixth Wednesday versus Diamondbacks right-hander Shelby Miller.
