Juan Lagares (elbow) could be out for the rest of the season.

Lagares suffered a sprained right elbow on Tuesday and has been ruled out through the next two series. It's possible he could return for the final series of the season against the Astros, but it wouldn't really make sense for the Mets to push him at that point. Lagares has hit .281/.321/.382 with four homers over 116 games this season while playing Gold Glove-level defense in center field.

Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

Zimmerman went 3-for-8 with a home run while getting in some at-bats at the Nationals' spring training complex and, most importantly, apparently didn't have issues with his right hamstring. Don't expect him to play every day, but Zimmerman is obviously a nice bat for the surging Nats to welcome back.

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said that Alex Avila (concussion) felt "disoriented" when he tried taking some swings Thursday and Friday.

Avila is sitting out Friday for the 10th time in 17 games this month due to post-concussion issues, and it sounds like, if anything, his symptoms are getting worse. With just over a week left in the season, he might not make it back. James McCann is getting the start behind the dish Friday, and he'll share time with Bryan Holaday while Avila is out.

Ryan Raburn underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Friday.

Raburn will need 6-8 weeks of rehab to recover from an operation that repaired a lateral meniscus tear. His normally offseason routine might be delayed a bit, but he'll be fine for spring training. Raburn batted just .200/.250/.297 with four home runs over 74 games for the Tribe this season.

Nick Markakis (shoulder) remained out of the Orioles' lineup Friday.

Markakis has now missed two straight starts after being hit on the right shoulder by a pitch on Tuesday. He hasn't needed to undergo any tests but noted that it hurts to lift his arm above his head. He's hoping to return on Saturday. Steve Pearce is in right field again Friday, with Christian Walker covering first base.
Sep 19 - 3:35 PM

Jason Heyward (thumb) is not in the Braves' lineup Friday.

Heyward exited Wednesday's game with a left thumb injury, and although X-rays came back clean, the thumb is still swollen. He's listed as day-to-day and could be available as a defensive replacement Friday. Ryan Doumit is in right field in Heyward's place.
Sep 19 - 3:23 PM

Charlie Morton (sports hernia) has been scratched from Sunday's start against the Brewers.

Morton managed to toss five shutout innings in his return to the rotation Tuesday, but his sports hernia was bothering him and he was still in a subsequent bullpen session. It seems unlikely that he'll return this season. Vance Worley will take the ball on Sunday.
Sep 19 - 3:16 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) is aiming to resume throwing on Saturday or Sunday.

The hope had been that he could start throwing Friday, but he remains sore after receiving a cortisone shot. Ryu did report improvement Friday and thinks he'll be back in time for the playoffs, but we'll just have to see how he recovers over the next couple weeks.
Sep 19 - 12:21 PM

Arismendy Alcantara is back in the Cubs' lineup Friday.

Alcantara missed the last two games after spraining his right wrist on Monday. The rookie has hit .212/.261/.363 with nine homers and eight steals over 61 games since being promoted by the Cubs in July.
Sep 19 - 10:56 AM

Jimmy Rollins (hamstring) could return to the lineup on Friday.

It just so happens that the Phillies are in Oakland, where Rollins grew up. The shortstop hasn't played since September 8 due to a left hamstring strain but tested things out on Thursday. He's hit .243/.323/.394 with 17 homers and 28 stolen bases for Philly this season.

LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that Glen Perkins is dealing with "some nerve irritation and maybe a slight muscle strain" in his left elbow.

Neal adds that the ailment "doesn't appear to be serious." However, with just a week and a half left in the season, the closer will undoubtedly be shut down. The good news is that it doesn't sound like it will be a long-term issue for Perkins. Jared Burton will continue to fill in as the Twins' closer.
