Latest Headlines

Hiroki Kuroda will not make his scheduled start on Friday against the Orioles due to a sore left hip flexor.

The good news is that an MRI came back clean and Kuroda appears likely to avoid the disabled list. The right-hander suffered the injury while warming up before Sunday's start but managed to pitch through it. Ivan Nova will get the ball for the Yankees on Friday.

Jed Lowrie (foot) is in Monday's lineup against the Angels.

Lowrie was hit in the foot by a pitch on Sunday and eventually left the game, but he's going to try to give it a go Monday. He'll bat sixth against C.J. Wilson.
Sep 22 - 5:58 PM

Jason Heyward (thumb) remains out of the Braves' lineup Monday against the Pirates.

Heyward hasn't played since he was hit in the left thumb by a pitch last Wednesday. It was reported Sunday that he was still unable to grip a bat, so fantasy owners would do well to have a backup plan this week.
Sep 22 - 5:56 PM

Anibal Sanchez (pectoral) will be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

Sanchez, out since August 8 with a pectoral strain, was cleared to return after making it through a simulated game Sunday with no issues. There's no enough time to get him stretched out as a starter, so he'll pitch as a starter in the final days of the regular season and into the playoffs.

Masahiro Tanaka feels good and is on track to start against the Red Sox on Saturday.

Good news. Tanaka looked sharp in his first start since July 8 on Sunday against the Blue Jays, allowing one run over 5 1/3 innings while striking out four and walking none. He threw 70 pitches in his return, but will be bumped up to 85 pitches for his final start of the season on Saturday. There haven't been many success stories with pitchers rehabbing a UCL tear, but things are looking up for Tanaka at the moment.

Adam Eaton was excused from the White Sox on Sunday due to a private family matter.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura is expected to offer more details about Eaton's situation Monday evening. The dynamic outfielder is batting .347/.399/.443 in 185 plate appearances since the All-Star break.
Sep 22 - 3:53 PM

Steve Pearce (wrist) is aiming to return Wednesday.

Pearce got a cortisone shot in his sore right wrist on Saturday and told reporters Monday that he already feels much better. The Orioles have already clinched the American League East, so they can play it safe.
Sep 22 - 3:50 PM

Chris Young has been moved to the Mariners' bullpen.

The veteran right-hander was scheduled to make his final regular-season start on Thursday against the Blue Jays, but the M's need to rack up as many victories as possible over this final week and aren't confident right now about what Young might give them. He had a great first half, but Young was lit up for seven runs in just three innings Saturday by a weak Astros team and owns an 8.35 ERA over his last five outings.
Sep 22 - 3:48 PM

Nick Markakis (shoulder) is back in the Orioles' starting lineup on Monday against the Yankees.

It'll be his first start since taking a pitch off his right shoulder last Tuesday. Markakis is batting .272/.336/.375 with 12 home runs and 44 RBI in 149 games this season for the American League East champions.
Sep 22 - 3:41 PM

Matt Adams (illness) is back in the Cardinals' lineup Monday evening versus the Cubs.

Adams was out Saturday and Sunday with a stomach bug. He's playing first base and hitting sixth as the Cardinals open a three-game series at Wrigley Field.
Sep 22 - 3:38 PM

Matt Carpenter (illness) is back in the Cardinals' starting lineup Monday against the Cubs.

Carpenter sat out Saturday and Sunday due to a stomach bug that has made its way around the Cardinals' clubhouse. He'll bat leadoff and play third base Monday.
Sep 22 - 3:37 PM

Mark Teixeira (wrist) is out of the Yankees' starting lineup again on Monday night.

Teixeira also sat out Saturday due to lingering soreness in his right wrist. He was recently given another cortisone shot -- his third of the season -- and is hoping to return to action at some point this week. Francisco Cervelli is at third base Monday against the Orioles.
