Wilson Betemit has been diagnosed with a ligament sprain in his right knee.

Betemit suffered the injury Monday while running the bases in a Grapefruit League game. The Orioles, who seem very concerned about the severity of the sprain, will have him reevaluated by team doctors Tuesday morning. Betemit was expected to serve as the O's DH in 2013.

Matt Olson has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 left hamstring strain.

He's done for the season, as Athletics manager Bob Melvin had previously indicated was likely. It's a rotten way for Olson's campaign to end, but the rookie had a mighty impressive showing with 24 home runs over just 59 games.

Marwin Gonzalez went 4-for-5 with a homer, three RBI, and three runs scored in the Astros' 11-2 thrashing of the Rangers on Monday.

Gonzalez struck out in his first at-bat, but he filled the box score from there. The 28-year-old slugger led off the top of the fourth inning with a single and then drove in two runs with another single later in that eight-run frame for Houston. Gonzalez belted a solo homer in the top of the sixth and added one more single for good measure in the top of the eighth. He's slashing .302/.371/.531 with 23 homers and 85 RBI in 129 games this season for the American League West champions.

Javier Baez finished 2-for-4 with a three-run homer Monday in the Cubs' 10-2 rout of the Cardinals.

Chicago's magic number to clinch the National League Central is now down to one. Baez went deep off Cardinals starter Luke Weaver in the top of the third inning and then tacked on a single in the top of the eighth before getting removed for late-sub Ian Happ. The 24-year-old infielder now has 23 home runs and 75 RBI in 141 games this season to go along with a .799 OPS.

X-rays on Jose Altuve's left forearm came back negative.

Altuve was lifted from Monday's game after being plunked on the forearm by a pitch, but he's escaped with merely a bruise. The Astros are calling him day-to-day.

Seth Lugo tossed six scoreless innings as the Mets defeated the Braves 3-2 in the second half of Monday's doubleheader.

Lugo was surprisingly terrific, yielding just two hits and zero walks while striking out seven. The 27-year-old right-hander is now 7-5 on the season with a 4.72 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and 81/25 K/BB ratio in 97 1/3 innings. He'll finish up with a road start against the last-place Phillies.

Mookie Betts will have his left wrist examined on Tuesday.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said that Betts being pulled with left wrist soreness was precautionary, and the outfielder thinks he'll be fine. However, he'll have the wrist looked at just to be safe. It certainly wouldn't be a surprise to see him miss a game or two even if he checks out OK.

Sean Doolittle earned his 24th save of the season on Monday against the Phillies.

Doolittle retired all three batters he faced in the bottom of the ninth inning, inducing two pop-ups and striking out Ty Kelly to end the night. The left-hander has not blown a save opportunity in his time as the Nationals' closer and for the season he boasts a 2.50 ERA and 0.83 WHIP. Doolittle looks ready for the postseason.

Yadier Molina was lifted from Monday's game against the Cubs after taking consecutive foul tips off his mask in the seventh inning.

Molina looked dazed after the first foul tip but eventually gathered himself, only to be nailed again with another foul ball. To make matters worse, he vomited on the field as he walked off with the Cardinals' trainer. Molina was able to head into the clubhouse under his own power, but he'll be put through concussion protocol.

Josh Donaldson went 3-for-3 with a homer and a walk Monday in the Blue Jays' 6-4 defeat of the Red Sox.

Donaldson's blistering finish to the 2017 campaign rolls on. He hit a solo shot off Blue Jays starter Drew Pomeranz in the top of the first, a two-run double off Pomeranz in the top of the second, and then he singled against reliever Carson Smith in the top of the seventh. Donaldson, a trade candidate this winter, has lifted his season OPS up to .935. He's sitting on 31 homers and 75 RBI in 109 games played.

Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers' lineup Monday after he showed up late for the team's pre-game workout.

Puig was benched Sunday after manager Dave Roberts expressed frustration with the outfielder being thrown out attempting a stolen base to end the game Saturday, and now he's riding the pine again after showing up late. It's obviously not what you want with the Dodgers set to begin the NLDS next week. Puig is expected to return to the lineup Tuesday.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin indicated Monday that Matt Olson (hamstring) is likely done for the season.

Olson tweaked his hamstring while stretching for a throw Sunday and Melvin said that the injury the first baseman is dealing with typically requires at least a week to heal. He'll undergo an MRI to determine the severity, but it appears fantasy owners will probably be without the slugging rookie the rest of the way. Olson has hit 24 home runs in just 59 games this season, including 16 across his last 25 contests.
