Yu Darvish was in dominant form in Friday's victory over the Rays, punching out 12 over six innings of one-run baseball.

He allowed just three hits and a walk in the impressive outing. The only blemish on his night was Evan Longoria's RBI double in the sixth inning. Darvish finishes the regular season with a 7-5 record, 3.41 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 132/31 K/BB ratio over 100 1/3 innings. With Darvish and Cole Hamels atop the Rangers' rotation, they look like a team that no one will want to tangle with come playoff time.

Miguel Cabrera launched a pair of home runs on Friday, powering the Tigers to a critically-important 6-2 victory over the Braves in Atlanta.

In a game that the Tigers absolutely needed to win, Cabrera and the rest of the Tigers' offense came through in a big way. Ian Kinsler started the game with a solo homer and two batters later Cabrera socked a two-run blast to give the Tigers an early 3-0 lead that they wouldn't relinquish. He added on a solo shot in the third inning, finishing the night 3-for-5 with three runs scored and three RBI. He's now hitting .315/.394/.565 with 38 homers and 108 RBI in what has been another outstanding season.

Nolan Arenado mashed his NL-leading 41st homer of the season in Friday’s 4-1 victory over the Brewers.

Arenado connected for a two-run homer against Brent Suter in the bottom of the first inning to give the Rockies an early lead. The 25-year-old finished the night 2-for-4 with two runs scored and is batting .296/.363/.575 on the year. He leads the majors with 133 RBI. Just to put things in perspective here, nobody else in the NL has more than 108 RBI.

Mark Trumbo mashed his MLB-leading 47th homer in Friday’s win over the Yankees.

It was a two-run homer in a six-run fifth inning which put the game out of reach. Trumbo has hit just .202 during the second half, but at least he has managed 19 homers and 40 RBI in 70 games during that time.
Sep 30 - 10:48 PM

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 with a homer and matched a career-high with five RBI in Friday’s 8-1 victory over the Yankees.

Schoop had gone 15 straight games without an RBI, but he broke out in a big way on Friday. He knocked in two runs with a double in the fourth inning before slamming a three-run homer in a six-run fifth inning. The 24-year-old failed to maintain his strong first half, but he’s sitting on 25 homers and 82 RBI.
Sep 30 - 10:46 PM

Jay Bruce stayed hot Friday against the Phillies by going 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBI.

Bruce had a pair of RBI singles and a solo homer. He has now gone deep in three straight games and has four homers in his last six. It has been a struggle for Bruce since he was acquired from the Reds at the August 1 trade deadline, but he’s coming around at just the right time for New York.
Sep 30 - 10:16 PM

The Yankees announced Friday that they'll skip Masahiro Tanaka's final start of the season on Saturday.

With nothing left to play for, there's no reason to push the right-hander any further than necessary. He finishes a terrific 2016 campaign with a 14-4 record, 3.07 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 165/36 K/BB ratio across 199 2/3 innings. Luis Severino will start in his place on Saturday against the Orioles.
Sep 30 - 8:34 PM

Angels manager Mike Scioscia announced Friday that Albert Pujols (foot) has been shut down for the remainder of the 2016 season.

The 36-year-old slugger has battled plantar fasciitis throughout the season, and at this point it seems like a wise call to simply let him rest and start the recovery process. Pujols also said that he plans to return as a first baseman next season, as he doesn't enjoy serving as the DH full-time. He finishes the season hitting .268/.323/.457 with 31 homers and 119 RBI in 152 games. It's his highest RBI total since his MVP campaign in 2009 with the Cardinals.
Sep 30 - 6:42 PM

Corey Kluber (quad) played catch from up to 150 feet on Friday.

Kluber also worked in some crow-hops in order to test out his quad strain and felt fine. There's no timetable yet for when he'll throw off a mound, but Friday's session was a positive development. Kluber is expected to be ready for the ALDS next week.
Sep 30 - 5:45 PM

Cardinals activated OF Matt Holliday from the 15-day disabled list.

He's not going to play much in the final weekend, though, as the Cards just want to get him a token appearance so that the impending free agent can be recognized by the fans. General manager John Mozeliak said Friday that the likelihood of the team picking up Holliday's option for 2017 is "very low."
Sep 30 - 5:24 PM

Bryan Price will return as the Reds' manager in 2017.

There had been some talk of Price being on the hot seat, but the entire coaching staff has been offered contracts to return next season. The club also will have an option on Price for 2018. The Reds are 67-92 in 2016 and 207-276 in three seasons under Price.
