Marco Estrada (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment at Low-A Wisconsin on Thursday.

That's assuming he's cleared by team physician William Raasch Wednesday following a successful 45-pitch bullpen session Tuesday. Estrada is expected to need just one rehab outing, putting him in line to rejoin the rotation next week.

Brandon Crawford (oblique) is aiming to return to the Giants' starting lineup on Monday.

Crawford sat out again on Saturday, but he was able to take pregame batting practice on the field without issue. Crawford has been out since Tuesday due to tightness in his left oblique, with Ehire Adrianza filling in at shortstop against the Cubs and Cardinals.

Lance Lynn (ankle) expects to make his next scheduled start in the Cardinals' rotation.

Lynn rolled his right ankle on Saturday and might have also tweaked his knee, but he was walking around without a limp after the game and wore cowboy boots out of the visitors clubhouse at AT&T Park. Lynn went seven scoreless innings in a victory Saturday against the Giants, lowering his season ERA to 2.80. He'll be evaluated when the Cardinals return to St. Louis on Monday.

Mets acquired RHP Addison Reed from the Diamondbacks.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York had the news first. It's been a mostly disappointing 2015 season for Reed, who went from closing games for the Diamondbacks to open the year to pitching out of the bullpen at Triple-A Reno in June. He has been much better lately and the Mets will hope he can stay on that roll. Arizona will get two minor league pitchers in return.

Stephen Piscotty finished 4-for-4 with a walk, an RBI, and two runs scored in Saturday's 6-0 defeat of the Giants.

Piscotty walked in the first, hit an infield single in the second, singled and scored in the fifth, singled again in the seventh, and then roped a triple to deep right-center field in the top of the ninth. The 24-year-old Stanford graduate continues to impress in his first taste of major league action, now with a .344/.378/.576 batting line in 35 games.

According to Patrick Mooney of CSNChicago.com, infield prospect Javier Baez is expected to be in the Cubs' first wave of September callups.

And it seems very possible that he could position himself for regular starts at second base. Starlin Castro and Tommy La Stella have been playing there with Addison Russell recently taking over at shortstop. Baez, 22, is batting .316/.380/.530 with 13 home runs, 60 RBI, and 17 stolen bases in 67 games this season at the Triple-A level. He'll be worth trying out in most mixed fantasy leagues.

Joe Kelly fired 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball Saturday as the Red Sox defeated the Mets 3-1.

It was another very good outing for Kelly, who's quietly putting together a promising second half. He'll finish August with a 6-0 record and a 2.68 ERA. The 27-year-old right-hander suddenly deserves consideration in mixed fantasy leagues with a stretch of favorable matchups ahead. Kelly gets the Phillies at home next.

Jean Machi earned his third save of the season as the Red Sox bested the Mets on Saturday.

Machi retired all three batters he faced in the bottom of the ninth inning at Citi Field. This comes after a brutal outing from Junichi Tazawa on Friday. Machi appears to be the guy to own right now in the Boston 'pen.
Aug 29 - 7:09 PM

Lance Lynn made an early exit from a potential shutout Saturday against the Giants after suffering a leg injury.

Lynn planted awkwardly while trying to field an infield dribbler in the bottom of the fifth and then rolled his right ankle on a throw to third base in the bottom of the eighth. He was eventually able walk off under his own power, but the big right-hander looked to be in some pain. He could be headed for the disabled list, with Tyler Lyons rejoining the St. Louis rotation.

Edwin Encarnacion delivered the finest offensive day of his career in Saturday's 15-1 victory over the Tigers, blasting three home runs and tying a franchise record with nine RBI.

Encarnacion got the Jays on the board early with a three-run blast off Buck Farmer in the first inning. He then clobbered a two-run homer in the sixth inning off Guido Knudson in the sixth. To top things off, he tagged Alex Wilson for a grand slam in the seventh inning, wrapping up a historic afternoon. The third home run prompted the Jays' faithful to toss their hats onto the field in celebration. He also extended his hitting streak to 24 games and matched a club record with his third grand slam in a single season. He now has 29 homers and 90 RBI on the year.

Astros placed C Jason Castro on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right quad.

Max Stassi was called up from Triple-A Fresno to take his roster spot. Castro suffered the injury in Friday's loss to Minnesota and will be out until mid-September. Castro has struck out in almost a third of his at-bats this season while slashing .220/.284/.395 with 11 homers and 30 RBI.
Aug 29 - 4:30 PM

Miguel Sano (hamstring) is back in the Twins' starting lineup Saturday versus the Astros.

Sano sat out Friday as a precautionary measure due to some mild tightness in his right hamstring. He is at DH and batting cleanup against Houston left-hander Scott Kazmir.
