The MRI on Dexter Fowler's right wrist came back negative.

Fowler's right wrist is still sore, though, and it's unclear if he'll be ready to play on Friday. The outfielder has played very little over the last couple weeks due to finger and wrist issues.

Jose Quintana pitched his first shutout since 2015 in the Cubs' 5-0 defeat of the Brewers on Sunday.

Quintana was absolutely terrific in this one, holding a dangerous Brewers offense to three singles and one walk while tallying 10 strikeouts. The 28-year-old left-hander now boasts a 3.50 ERA in 79 2/3 innings since joining the Cubs and Sunday's double-digit strikeout game helped him notch the first 200-strikeout season of his career. He'll wrap up the regular season with a start at home against the last-place Reds.

Lucas Giolito fired seven innings of one-run ball Sunday as the White Sox routed the Royals 8-1.

Giolito gave up a solo homer to Lorenzo Cain in the top of the fourth inning but he was otherwise brilliant, yielding just four other hits -- one double, three singles -- while issuing zero walks and striking out five. The talented 23-year-old boasts a 2.38 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and 34/12 K/BB ratio over his first 45 1/3 innings (seven starts) with Chicago. Giolito finishes 2017 with a road start next weekend against the Indians, who will probably be resting some regulars.

Felipe Rivero earned his 19th save of the season Sunday afternoon against the Cardinals.

Rivero retired all three batters he faced in the top of the ninth inning, two via strikeout. The hard-throwing 26-year-old left-hander owns an excellent 1.72 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, and 86/20 K/BB ratio in 73 1/3 innings this season with Pittsburgh and he should rank as a top-tier fantasy closer (or close to it) leading into 2018.

Mookie Betts went 1-for-4 with three runs knocked in during a 5-4 victory over the Reds on Sunday.

After missing Saturday's game, Betts was back in the Boston lineup on Sunday, and he had one of the biggest hits of the game. Down 4-2, he knocked in two on a two-run double to tie the game at 4-4, and he scored the game-winning run on a single by Rafael Devers. It gives Betts 99 RBI on the year, and while he's hitting just .263, he's shown that he's a quality run-producer in the potent Red Sox lineup.

Max Scherzer gave up just one run in six innings while striking out 10 in a 3-2 victory over the Mets on Sunday.

Scherzer was dominant over his six innings, and probably could have gone an inning or two more, but there's no point in risking anything with the Nationals locked into their playoff spots. Scherzer is scheduled to make another start on Saturday against the Phillies, but there's no guarantee that he'll make that start with the playoffs starting the week after.

An MRI has revealed that Miguel Cabrera is dealing with two herniated discs in his back.

Cabrera has battled back issues for the bulk of the season, so it's conceivable to think he's been playing with two herniated discs for a long time. It would certainly offer at least some explanation as to why he's batted just .249/.329/.399 with 16 home runs. Cabrera will receive treatment and could play again this season, although if he does it would almost surely be as a designated hitter. Fantasy owners can feel free to cut him loose.

Justin Turner (thumb) remained out of the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

Turner hasn't played since Thursday due to a bruised right thumb and has also been under the weather recently. The thumb ailment doesn't seem like a big issue, but the Dodgers have already clinched and have no need to push their third baseman. Logan Forsythe is at the hot corner Sunday and Chase Utley is at second base.
Sep 24 - 2:20 PM

Dylan Bundy was scratched from Sunday's start against the Rays due to a strained left hamstring.

So, it doesn't appear the Orioles had plans to shut Bundy down, but they might have the decision made for them. It's unclear if the injury is something the righty had been dealing with or if he might have tweaked the hammy while warming up Sunday. Chris Tillman is starting in Bundy's place.

Daniel Murphy hit a solo home run in the 10th inning to help the Nationals edge the Mets 4-3 on Saturday.

Murphy cranked a Jacob Rhame curveball to straight-away center, his 23rd homer of the season. He finished 2-for-5 in the game with a double and another run scored. The 32-year-old is fourth in the National League with a .316 batting average, and he's got 90 RBI and 90 runs scored to go with a .917 OPS to boot. If not for a couple teammates having even better offensive years, we might expect to see his name on a couple MVP ballots in the coming months.
Sep 24 - 1:13 AM

Giancarlo Stanton finished 3-for-6 with a double, a solo home run, two runs scored and four RBI in Saturday's victory at Arizona.

Stanton is up to 57 homers for the season. The slugger has eight more games to reach the magical 60-homer mark, and three of those outings come at Coors Field in Denver starting on Monday.
Sep 24 - 12:33 AM

Whit Merrifield drove in three runs with a bases-loaded double, and the Royals downed the White Sox 8-2 on Saturday.

The Royals had a 3-1 lead in the seventh inning when Merrifield stepped to the plate with the sacks jacked. He emptied them with his 31st double of the year. The 28-year-old has followed up on a surprising 2016 debut with a true breakout season, batting .290/.329/.465 with 18 homers, 76 RBI, 76 runs scored and 33 steals in 137 games.
