A.J. Burnett (calf) will be activated from the disabled list to start on Sunday against the Cubs in Chicago.

He'll be making his return without going on a rehab assignment, as the Pirates were happy enough with how Burnett looked during a simulated game and bullpen sessions. Given that he hasn't started a game since June 8, he seems likely to be on a pitch count. Still, he'll be worth using in fantasy leagues against the Cubs' weak lineup.

Wilson Ramos exited Monday's game against the Diamondbacks in the sixth inning with an apparent injury to his right knee.

Well, that's no good. Ramos injured the knee after jumping to catch a throw at home plate and had to helped off the field by the training staff. It's worth noting that he tore the ACL and MCL in the very same knee back in 2012, so this is very troubling, especially with the playoffs and free agency approaching. The Nationals will have to cross their fingers for now.

Corey Kluber exited Monday's start against the Tigers with right groin tightness.

Kluber allowed two runs on five hits and one walk over four innings before leaving the ballgame. The Indians' rotation has already taken multiple hits down the stretch, so this isn't an encouraging development. We should know more about the severity soon.

Garrett Richards (elbow) is slated to face live hitters on Wednesday.

Assuming all goes well, Richards will make his first appearance in the instructional league next Monday. The 28-year-old was diagnosed with a torn right ulnar collateral ligament back in May, but he decided to undergo stem cell treatments in hopes of avoiding Tommy John surgery.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said that Aledmys Diaz traveled to Miami on Monday to be with family and close friends following the tragic passing of Jose Fernandez.

Diaz was childhood friends and neighbors with Fernandez, who was killed early Sunday morning in a boating accident. "That was a place he needed to be today," said Matheny.

Matt Carpenter has been dealing with an issue to his right ring finger.

That explains his absence from Monday's lineup. It's apparently been a lingering issue, so the hope is that the rest will improve his symptoms. Not ideal with the Cardinals fighting to stay in the race. Greg Garcia will start at second base and bat leadoff Monday.

Masahiro Tanaka (forearm) will see Dr. Christopher Ahmad in New York on Tuesday to determine whether he can make another start before the end of the season.

Tanaka was scratched from Monday's start against the Blue Jays due to a mild forearm strain. His status up in the air, especially with the Yankees on the verge of being eliminated from playoff contention. There should be more clarity on his status in the next day or so.

Nelson Cruz was sent for an MRI on his left wrist on Monday.

The results aren't yet known, but Cruz is in the lineup at designated hitter for Monday's game against the Astros. He plans to play no matter what, but look for him to cut back on pregame hitting work in an effort to protect the wrist.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch hasn't ruled out Alex Bregman (hamstring) from returning this week.

It was previously thought that Bregman was unlikely to return unless the Astros made a deep run into the playoffs, but he was able to make it through a full workout on Monday. If anything, he could get some peace of mind going into the winter. The outstanding rookie has been out since September 14 with a hamstring strain.

Danny Salazar (forearm) threw 20-plus pitches off the mound on Monday.

Salazar threw all fastballs at about 75 percent intensity, but it was a step in the right direction. Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway said "it would be nice" to get him a relief appearance before the playoffs, though it's unclear whether he'll have enough time to do so.
Sep 26 - 5:13 PM

Roberto Osuna and Joaquin Benoit are expected to get the day off Monday.

Osuna has thrown 38 pitches over the past two days (including his blown save on Sunday) while Benoit threw 24 pitches on Sunday. Jason Grilli would likely get a save chance if needed Monday versus the Yankees.
Sep 26 - 4:44 PM

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Monday that Nick Castellanos (hand) could return by the weekend.

Castellanos has been sidelined since August 6 with a fractured hand, but he was slated to play in an instructional league game on Monday. Barring any setbacks, he appears to be the verge of a return. The 24-year-old was batting .286 with 18 homers and an .831 OPS in 105 games prior to the injury.
