An MRI on Josh Johnson's triceps has come back negative.

Good news. Johnson will resume throwing on Thursday and is expected to need a couple rehab starts before rejoining the Blue Jays' rotation. Ricky Romero is occupying his spot in the rotation for now.

Felix Hernandez fired seven shutout innings, striking out 11, in a no-decision against the Angels on Thursday.

He scattered three hits and walked two. The Mariners ultimately won 3-1, but we're not going to call this a "tough-luck" no-decision, because King Felix didn't exactly face a murderer's row. The Angels trotted out the following Little League World Series lineup after clinching the division last night: 1. Tony Campana CF, 2. Gordon Beckham SS, 3. Brennan Boesch RF, 4. C.J. Cron DH, 5. Efren Navarro 1B, 6. Grant Green 2B, 7. Hank Conger C, 8. Luis Jimenez 3B, 9. Shawn O'Malley LF. Hernandez is 1-0 with a 0.96 ERA across his last four outings. The soon-to-be Cy Young gets the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Jose Ramirez finished 3-for-6 with a double and two runs scored in Thursday's 13-inning win against the Astros.

Ramirez scored both of the Indians' runs, touching home for the tying run in the ninth on a Carlos Santana single, and scoring the go-ahead run in the 13th on a Mike Aviles sacrifice fly. Ramirez had been held to just three hits in his previous 23 at-bats entering the contest, and still sports a mediocre .254/.299/.328 slash line on the season.

Yasiel Puig went 3-for-5 with an RBI single and a run scored in Thursday's defeat of the Cubs.

Puig has had a good road trip out West, batting .400 (12-for-30) over seven games thus far. He may have broken out of his slump just in time for the Dodgers, who are defending a narrow lead in the NL West. Puig currently rests on a .297/.383/.477 slash line with 14 home runs and 63 RBI.

Wilin Rosario sent the Rockies home happy, clubbing a walk-off two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning on Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

The Rockies had chipped away at the Diamondbacks' five-run lead, scoring twice in the sixth and twice in the eighth to make it 6-5. With two outs and a man on, Rosario took advantage of an Addison Reed offering, sending a 387-foot blast to left-center. The catcher, who finished 4-for-5 on the evening, now has 12 homers on the season with 51 RBI and a .265/.301/.432 slash line.

Gerrit Cole picked up his 10th win of the season after limiting the Red Sox to two runs in seven innings on Thursday.

Cole's effort helped the Pirates maintain their foothold on the second Wild Card slot and keep them within arm's reach of first place in the NL Central, polishing off a sweep of the lowly Red Sox. The right-hander scattered six hits with no walks and seven strikeouts. Now with a 3.85 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 118/38 K/BB ratio, Cole will look to keep it going on Tuesday in Atlanta against the Braves.
Sep 18 - 10:22 PM

Anthony Rendon went 2-for-5 with a stolen base and a pair of runs scored in Thursday's victory over the Marlins.

Rendon brought his league-leading runs scored total up to 110 with the effort. He's also up to 16 stolen bases on the season, leaving him four shy of a 20 HR/20 SB season. The Nationals' MVP is slashing .286/.348/.473.
Sep 18 - 10:05 PM

Derek Jeter homered for the first time in 158 at-bats on Thursday as the Yankees downed the Blue Jays.

Jeter took R.A. Dickey out to left field for his fourth homer of the season and first since August 1. The soon-to-retire shortstop ended an 0-for-28 skid on Wednesday, so he's been in the business of tying up some loose ends before the season's out. Jeter owns a .250/.299/.303 with 41 RBI.

Josh Hamilton is dealing with tightness and soreness in the front part of his right shoulder/chest area.

It's a different part of the shoulder than what was bothering him before. Hamilton returned to action Tuesday after missing the previous 11 games, but he's now missed the last two contests. He visited a chiropractor Wednesday, but it's not clear what the next step is with his rehab. Hamilton said Thursday that he'll do his best to get ready for the playoffs, but his status is totally up in the air.

Mike Trout is not in Thursday's lineup against the Mariners.

Not surprisingly, the Angels' regulars are sitting after the team wrapped up the AL West on Wednesday night. Here's the lineup King Felix will face: Tony Campana CF, Gordon Beckham SS, Brennan Boesch RF, C.J. Cron DH, Efren Navarro 1B, Grant Green 2B, Hank Conger C, Luis Jimenez 3B, Shawn O'Malley LF.

Nolan Arenado (pneumonia) could miss the rest of the season.

Arenado came out of Sunday's game with a chest contusion and an MRI on Monday revealed signs of pneumonia. He's doing better, but there just might not be enough time for him to make it back at this point.
Sep 18 - 4:53 PM

Jordy Mercer (back) has returned to the Pirates' lineup Thursday against the Red Sox.

Mercer had his back tighten up on him Tuesday and ended up missing consecutive games, but he's feeling better now. He'll bat seventh against Brandon Workman.
