The Brewers are hopeful that Kyle Lohse (finger) will be able to make his next start.

Great news for the Brew Crew. Lohse dislocated his left pinkie during Monday's game after it connected with Jedd Gyorko as he crossed first base. The injury looked pretty nasty, but it's obviously Lohse's non-throwing hand, so he should be OK. The righty boasts a 2.52 ERA and 0.96 WHIP through his first four starts this season.

Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports that the Mets plan to stick with their innings plan for Matt Harvey that will allow him to pitch through the playoffs.

Harvey's agent, Scott Boras, made waves when he told CBS Sports' Jon Heyman that he thinks the club should shut the righty down when he reaches 180 innings (he's at 166 1/3 frames now). But, while they plan to skip Harvey once more and will also use a six-man rotation this month, they have no plans to shut the right-hander down altogether.

Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

Ramirez hasn't played in over a week due to fatigue in his right shoulder. He remains day-to-day but there's been no indication of when he'll be back in there. Allen Craig is getting a start at first base Friday.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that contract extension talks between the Astros and Dallas Keuchel's agent "will or have been" tabled until the offseason.

Keuchel revealed last month that the discussions were taking place, but it's not a surprise that the two sides have decided to hold off for now while they fight for a playoff spot. The left-hander will be arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter and is arguably the front-runner for the American League Cy Young award, having put up a 2.24 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP and a 173/42 K/BB ratio over 192 2/3 innings.

Astros activated OF George Springer from the 15-day disabled list.

Springer got through five rehab games with Double-A Corpus Christi with no issues and is ready to go. He's been sidelined since early July with a fractured right wrist.
Sep 4 - 1:05 PM

Corey Kluber has been scratched from Friday's scheduled start due to a right hamstring strain.

It's not clear when Kluber was injured, but it could cost him an additional start after Friday. Josh Tomlin will move up a day to start Friday. The Indians are clinging to faint Wild Card hopes, so it's certainly rotten news for them.

Yankees placed 1B Mark Teixeira on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 27, with a right shin bone bruise.

The Yankees threw Teixeira's fantasy owners a bone here, as DL moves are rarely made in September. The transaction occurred because they wanted to bring back reliever Nick Rumbelow before his 10-day waiting period was up. Teixeira is getting around on crutches at the moment and is expected to miss at least a couple weeks.

Kyle Schwarber will be sidelined for at least 3-5 days after being diagnosed with a right rib cage strain.

Well, it could have been worse. Schwarber will be re-evaluated in 3-5 days to see how much progress he's made and could return to the lineup at that time. The impressive rookie injured his ribs on a check swing while taking batting practice Wednesday.

Josh Johnson (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Lake Elsinore on Friday.

He'll throw one inning Friday and is set for another inning for Lake Elsinore on Monday. It looks like the Padres will bring Johnson back as a reliever, assuming he makes it back at all. He hasn't pitched in a game since August of 2013 and has had numerous setbacks along the way as he works his way back from a second Tommy John surgery.
Sep 4 - 10:53 AM

Lucas Duda (back) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Binghamton on Saturday.

Duda hasn't recovered quite as quickly as hoped from a thoracic herniation in his back, but it does look like he'll be activated in a few days. The Mets figure to be careful with his playing time down the stretch.
Sep 4 - 10:43 AM

Carlos Carrasco (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session on Friday.

If it goes well, Carrasco could rejoin the Indians' rotation early next week during the series against the Royals. The right-hander has missed the last two weeks with a shoulder injury, but he was cleared of any structural damage and Cleveland is confident the ailment isn't a big deal.

Yangervis Solarte finished with a huge game in Thursday's 10-7 win over the Dodgers, going 4-for-5 with a solo home run, two doubles and three runs scored.

Tight effort by Solarte, who played a key role in the Padres' come-from-behind win. He cracked a solo homer in the seventh to draw his team to within 7-6, then finished off the night's scoring with an RBI double in a four-run eighth. The strong performance boosted the 28-year-old infielder's season triple-slash to .267/.321/.428. He's also hit 12 homers and driven in 55. This is the first season in which Solarte's seen more than 252 at-bats.
