Gordon Beckham (hand) tallied three hits Sunday in his second rehab game with Triple-A Charlotte.

Beckham went 2-for-4 on Saturday in his rehab debut and is looking ready to rejoin the White Sox. But since he's been out so long -- over five weeks -- the second baseman will likely remain on the farm until Friday.

Collin McHugh was superb in Friday's 8-0 win over the Twins, firing 7 2/3 innings of shutout ball.

McHugh scattered seven hits while striking out six and walking one. This was the first time this season he held the opponent scoreless in a start. He's been coming on strong of late, having allowed two runs or fewer in each of his last six outings. For the season, the 28-year-old right-hander holds a 3.75 ERA and 1.27 WHIP. Up next on the docket, a road date with the A's as McHugh looks to continue his recent brilliant ways.

Martin Prado went 5-for-6 with a walk-off RBI double in Friday's 6-5, 11-inning win over the Mets.

Two of Prado's five hits went for doubles, with the last one being the one that ended it all. Christian Yelich scored all the way from first on Prado's double in the bottom of the 11th, sending the few fans who attend September Marlin games home happy. With the five-hit game (his first of the season), the 31-year-old infielder is slashing .284/.328/.385 with seven homers and 47 RBI.

Michael Taylor hit a pinch-hit, walk-off three-run homer in the 10th inning of Friday's 5-2 win over the Braves.

Taylor didn't start the game, as he's fighting through a sore right knee. When he came off the bench to homer off Brandon Cunniff with two runners on and nobody out in the bottom of the 10th, he proved that having functional knees is an overrated aspect of life. This season, the outfielder's hitting .240/.288/.392 with 14 homers, 58 RBI and 15 steals. His power and speed make him a useful fantasy option in deeper NL-only formats.

Joe Kelly logged another quality start in Friday's victory over the Phillies, allowing two runs on five hits over his six frames.

Kelly fanned five opposing hitters while issuing three free passes. Aside from the fourth inning where the Phillies scratched out a pair of runs, Kelly was in complete command. After an absolutely miserable start to the season, Kelly has now won each of his last seven starts, compiling a 2.72 ERA and 33/14 K/BB ratio over 43 innings. He'll look to extend that dominance when he takes on the Blue Jays on Wednesday.
Sep 4 - 11:01 PM

Chris Davis mashed another pair of home runs on Friday as the Orioles thrashed the Blue Jays 10-2 in Toronto.

Davis got the O's on the board with a solo blast off Drew Hutchison in the second inning, and added on a two-run shot in the sixth. The 29-year-old slugger has been absolutely locked in at the plate, clobbering five home runs in his last three games, including two consecutive multi-homer games. With his 2-for-5 effort, Davis is now slashing .253/.338/.545 with 40 home runs and 100 RBI. It's the second time in his career that he has crossed each of those milestones.
Sep 4 - 10:46 PM

Alex Rodriguez went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Friday's 5-2 win over the Rays.

Rodriguez's homer opened the scoring for the game in the second inning. It was his 27th home run of the season. He logged a nine-homer July, but hit just two bombs last month. It's been a general cool-down for the 40-year-old as the days have worn on. He entered Friday's game having hit .210/.317/.413 in 40 games since the All-Star Break.
Sep 4 - 10:13 PM

Josh Tomlin delivered a masterful performance in Friday's victory over the Tigers, allowing just one run on four hits while pitching his first complete game this season.

Tomlin racked up six strikeouts on the night while walking one. The only blemish on his evening was an RBI single by Miguel Cabrera in the sixth inning. The veteran right-hander has pitched very well in his five starts this season, compiling a 2.55 ERA and 32/3 K/BB ratio over 35 1/3 innings. He'll take on the White Sox in Chicago on Wednesday and warrants consideration in all mixed leagues while he's pitching this well.
Sep 4 - 10:12 PM

Stephen Vogt was a late scratch from the Athletics starting lineup on Friday.

No reason has yet to be given for his late removal from the lineup. Mark Canha slides over from left field to cover first base while Taylor Ladendorf will enter the lineup and play left field.
Sep 4 - 8:39 PM

Padres activated 1B/OF Wil Myers from the 60-day disabled list.

Myers will rejoin the Padres lineup immediately on Friday, batting sixth and starting at first base. He has been sidelined since June 13 following surgery on his left wrist. The 24-year-old is hitting .277/.327/.459 with five homers and 19 RBI in 35 games this season.
Sep 4 - 7:05 PM

Addison Russell clobbered a pair of home runs on Friday, leading the Cubs offense in a 14-5 rout over the Diamondbacks.

Russell swatted a solo home run off D'Backs starter Zack Godley in the second inning, increasing the Cubbies early lead to 4-0. He victimized him again in the fourth, this time a two-run homer, putting the Cubs ahead 6-1. He also drew a walk, finishing the afternoon 2-for-3 with three runs scored and three RBI. The rookie shortstop is hitting .244/.303/.403 with 12 long balls and 41 RBI.
Sep 4 - 7:02 PM

Andrew McCutchen (Achilles) is back in the Pirates' lineup Friday.

McCutchen sat out Friday with some minor tightness in his Achilles. It's something to keep an eye on going forward, but he's expected to be alright.
