A.J. Griffin threw his first career shutout Wednesday in the A's 5-0 blanking of the visiting Reds.

It was also his first complete game at the major league level. Griffin carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning and wound up yielding just two hits in all. He struck out seven batters and issued only two walks, throwing 73 of his 108 pitches for strikes. The 25-year-old right-hander now has an excellent 3.56 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 81/25 K/BB ratio in 103 2/3 innings this season. He'll get the Cubs next.

Mike Moustakas (hamstring) is out again Thursday.

Moustakas has now missed three straight games with a hamstring injury. It's considered minor, but the Royals will take advantage of their massive AL Central lead and give their third baseman an extra day of rest. Cheslor Cuthbert is at third base and batting eighth Thursday evening against Tigers lefty Matt Boyd.

Matt Harvey (dehydration) is expected to be fine.

Harvey was not on the Mets' team flight to Miami after suffering from dehydration at the end of his outing Wednesday against the Phillies, but he should be good to take his next turn in the rotation in Washington, D.C. Harvey has a stellar 2.60 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 158/34 K/BB ratio in 166 1/3 innings this season for New York.

Tim Lincecum underwent season-ending surgery early Thursday morning on his hip.

His recovery timetable is unclear at this point. Lincecum will enter free agency after making zero starts in the second half of the 2015 season, and with a 4.68 ERA over his last four years with San Francisco. The two-time Cy Young Award winner will almost certainly have to settle for a one-year, incentive-laden contract on the open market this winter.

Cardinals GM John Mozeliak acknowledged Wednesday that any contract talks with Jason Heyward will likely have to wait until after the World Series.

"In terms of when we can actually engage, it's really going to be this offseason," the Cardinals general manager told KMOX. It's a no-brainer for Heyward to test the free agent market at this point and he's going to cash in big as a 26-year-old with a range of high-level skills. Heyward is batting .292/.349/.441 in 128 games this season for first-place St. Louis and has continued to play Gold Glove defense in the outfield. He'll have many aggressive, deep-pocketed suitors.

Phil Hughes (back) threw a successful bullpen session on Thursday morning at Target Field.

Hughes will do a similar workout on Sunday and then join the Twins in Kansas City for a simulated game. He probably won't be able to make a rehab start because minor league seasons are coming to a close. Hughes has been out since August 13 with a back injury.
Sep 3 - 11:59 AM

Erik Johnson will start Sunday in Kansas City.

Johnson has registered a stellar 2.37 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 136/41 K/BB ratio across 132 2/3 innings this season at Triple-A Charlotte and is worth another look in deeper mixed fantasy leagues. The right-hander struggled in five starts with the White Sox in 2014.
Sep 3 - 11:45 AM

Glen Perkins (back) won't be with the Twins for the start of their upcoming road trip.

Perkins is still dealing with a back spasm and could barely walk in the clubhouse ahead of Thursday afternoon's series finale at home against the White Sox. Kevin Jepsen is a must-own in all standard fantasy leagues. Perkins, 32, has also missed time this year with a neck injury.
Sep 3 - 11:27 AM

Jose Peraza will be out for at least the next 3-5 games due to a sore hamstring.

It's part of the reason the Dodgers are calling up top infield prospect Corey Seager on Thursday. Pereza has impressed so far with Los Angeles, slashing .267/.353/.467 in 17 plate appearances. He was acquired from the Braves in July as part of the Hector Olivera trade.
Sep 3 - 11:21 AM

Miguel Sano is not in the Twins' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the White Sox.

Sano has been bothered by a mild right hamstring strain for a week, but the injury isn't slowing him down at all. He'll sit Thursday mostly for routine rest. Joe Mauer is at designated hitter against the Pale Hose.
Sep 3 - 11:08 AM

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Dodgers are calling up top infield prospect Corey Seager.

Seager was arguably the best young talent left in the minor leagues in what has become The Year of the Rookie at the major league level. The 21-year-old former first-round pick boasts a .306/.368/.523 career batting line on the farm and he's tallied 38 home runs and 86 doubles over the last two seasons between High-A, Double-A, and Triple-A. Seager has been playing shortstop and a little bit of third base this summer, and he could see semi-regular playing time on the Los Angeles infield if he gets off to a good start. He's probably not going to be truly fantasy relevant until 2016, though.
Sep 3 - 10:03 AM

Carlos Gonzalez had a grand slam, a two-run homer and a sac fly to power the Rockies to a 9-4 win over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Gonzalez is the eighth player to drive in seven runs in a game this year. He's now just one away from matching his career high of 34 homers, and with 80 RBI, he has a chance to reach the century mark for the second time in his career. It's too bad for his fantasy value that he doesn't try steals any more, but his owners will make that trade off in return for continued health.
