Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said that while a discussion about removing Ricky Romero from the rotation hasn't taken place, he is "constantly evaluating" everything.

"We haven’t talked about it all. We evaluate it start by start," Anthopoulos said. "We’ve said we have our five starters. He’s one of those five starters. We haven’t had any change of plans, the plans are still the same. But just like anything else, you’re constantly evaluating." Romero went 2 1/3 innings against a High-A team Thursday, allowing four runs on five hits and five walks, throwing just 29 of 64 pitches for strikes. He also holds a 7.27 ERA and 2.08 WHIP with seven walks over 8 2/3 Grapefruit League frames. If the Jays ultimately decide to let Romero work on things in the minors, J.A. Happ would replace him in the rotation.

Hunter Renfroe went off in Tuesday's 7-1 win over the Dodgers, launching a three-run home run and a grand slam to finish with seven RBI.

Renfroe spaced out his damage. He swatted a three-run home run off Kenta Maeda in the first inning, then went silent until the eighth. At which point, all the noise in the world. The 24-year-old outfielder connected to clear the bases for the grand slam against Louis Coleman, boosting the Padres to a 7-1 advantage in the process. For those disinclined to do the math, Renfroe accounted for all seven of the Padres' runs in the game with his pair of home runs. Those were his second and third career major league homers. All of this damage has come in Renfroe's first 17 big league at-bats. Not too shabby.

Adrian Gonzalez exited Tuesday's loss to the Padres due to a sinus infection.

Gonzalez saw two at-bats before being lifted. He should be considered day-to-day moving forward, but there is little reason to believe this will cost him more than a game or two. If that.

Tim Anderson went 3-for-5 with a homer, three RBI and two runs scored in the White Sox' 13-6 beatdown of the Rays on Tuesday.

Anderson did damage with each of his three hits, collecting an RBI single in the first inning before swatting a run-scoring double in the second. He then capped it off with a solo shot, his eighth of the season, in the eighth inning. It's been a successful rookie campaign for the 23-year-old, who is hitting .278/.300/.411 with those eight homers, 28 RBI, 54 runs scored and 10 steals in 94 games overall.

Matt Moore was phenomenal in Tuesday's 12-3 romp-of-a-win against the Rockies, striking out 11 while allowing one run on six hits over 7 2/3 innings.

This was peak Matt Moore. Not only did he strike out 11, he failed to walk a batter in the win. Moore had the luxury of an offensive surge from the Giants and held a 6-1 advantage after five innings. That lead would only grow as the game wandered into the later innings. Since coming over to the Giants from the Rays at the trade deadline, Moore has been something of a mixed bag, pitching to a mediocre 4.48 ERA and 1.43 WHIP over 60 1/3 innings, but counteracting that by degrees with several brilliant starts in the vain of Tuesday's. He is currently scheduled to start Sunday's regular-season finale against the Dodgers.

Aledmys Diaz paid tribute to his friend Jose Fernandez on Tuesday, hitting a grand slam en route to the Cardinals' 12-5 drubbing of the Reds.

Diaz, who was away from the Cardinals on Monday to be with Fernandez's family in Miami, smacked a Robert Stephenson fastball into the left-center field bleachers to give the Cardinals a 5-2 lead in the bottom fourth inning Tuesday night at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. As he touched home plate he pointed to the sky in remembrance of his boyhood friend, and again Diaz gestured to the heavens after a curtain call from Cardinals fans. The 26-year-old shortstop will surely be playing with a heavy heart for as long as the Cards stay in it, but Tuesday was a moment he likely won't forget.

Jefry Marte went 2-for-4 with a grand slam in Tuesday's 8-1 win over the A's

Marte stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and nobody out in the fourth inning. Facing off against Daniel Mengden, he proceeded to launch a 405-foot bomb to dead central to jump the Angels to a 5-0 lead. That was more than enough for a game Ricky Nolasco. In addition to the granny, Marte also picked up a double. He has done a nice job in a complementary role this season, hitting .251/.307/.461 with 13 homers and 42 RBI over 243 at-bats.
Sep 28 - 1:05 AM

Freddie Freeman went 2-for-3 with a solo homer to extend his hitting streak to 29 games in Tuesday's win over the Phillies.

The first baseman's longball in the fourth inning off of Jerad Eickhoff extended the hit streak, and Freeman added a walk and a single, scoring three runs on the night. He's also reached base in 45 straight contests, a streak that extends back to August 5. Freeman's batting line this season is up to .307/.404/.576.
Sep 28 - 12:54 AM

Ryan Howard hit his 15th career grand slam in Tuesday's loss to the Braves.

Howard followed a couple singles and a walk in the first inning with a long one to right field off of Julio Teheran. He also added a single in a later at-bat. Howard's .196/.259/.453 batting line is awfully ugly, but he's still hitting balls over the boards with 24 home runs. It's his highest home run total since 2011.
Sep 28 - 12:47 AM

George Springer went 3-for-5 with a two-run double and two runs scored to help the Astros double up the Mariners 8-4 on Tuesday.

Springer singled and scored leading off the first inning, but it was his double with the bases loaded in the sixth inning that made the difference. That two-run knock gave the Astros a lead, and they would hold onto it to keep pace in the hunt for a spot in the AL Wild Card game. Springer is the owner of an eight-game hitting streak during which he's 17-for-36. The good stretch has his overall line up to .262/.362/.458 with 28 homers, 81 RBI, 115 runs scored and nine steals.
Sep 28 - 12:42 AM

Carlos Gomez hit a three-run home run and the Rangers topped the Brewers 6-4 on Tuesday.

Gomez jumped on a pitch by his former teammate Jimmy Nelson in the third inning, tying the game with his three-run shot. He's now got seven homers, 21 RBI and 18 runs scored since joining the Rangers in late August, a signal that perhaps a change of scenery was all the 30-year-old needed. Gomez will make for an interesting free agent case this offseason.
Sep 28 - 12:06 AM

Roman Quinn left Tuesday's game against the Braves with a strained left oblique.

Quinn was 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored before departing in the sixth inning. The injury is almost certainly going to end his cup of coffee with the Phillies, given that oblique strains typically require 3-4 weeks of rest and rehab. Quinn, a highly-regarded outfield prospect, batted .263/.373/.333 with four doubles and five stolen bases over his first 15 major leagues.
