Nick Masset will undergo season-ending surgery next week for thoracic outlet syndrome.

More disappointing news for Masset, who hasn't pitched in the majors since 2011 due to shoulder issues. The new injury consists of what Reds head trainer Paul Lessard called an "impinged nerve" while the operation requires the removal of the first rib. The 31-year-old will likely have to accept a minor league deal this offseason.

Yoan Moncada drove in four runs in Friday’s extra-inning loss to the Royals.

Get excited, White Sox fans and fantasy owners. Called up after this week’s Todd Frazier trade, Moncada plated a run with a ground out in the second inning before collecting his first hit with Chicago on a bases-clearing triple in the third. Talk about easy speed. Moncada’s penchant for the strikeout will likely cut into his batting average upside in the short-term, but he’s capable of producing across the board in fantasy leagues.

Josh Bell went 4-for-6 with four RBI and a run scored Friday versus the Rockies.

It was the first four-hit game of his career. Bell had a single, a double, and a triple, so only a home run was missing from a possible cycle. The 24-year-old doesn’t stand out on the surface with his .248 batting average, but he has 17 homers and a respectable .807 OPS through 96 games.

Victor Martinez blasted a pair of home runs and plated three on Friday, powering the Tigers to a 6-3 victory over the Twins.

Martinez got the Tigers on the board with a mammoth solo shot off of Ervin Santana in the first inning, then increased that lead to 4-0 by victimizing Santana for a two-run shot in the fourth. He finished the night 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored. Since returning from the disabled list, Martinez is hitting .275 (19-for-69) with three homers and 12 RBI in 18 games.

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Dodgers and Cubs were among the teams scouting Yu Darvish's start against the Rays on Friday.

They had to come away impressed with what they saw after Darvish whiffed 12 over eight innings of three-run baseball. He's one of the top arms rumored to be available prior to the trade deadline, so expect the action surrounding him to heat up in the coming days.

Michael Conforto clubbed two homers and knocked in four runs in Friday’s 7-5 victory over the Athletics.

Conforto launched a two-run homer in the third inning before connecting for another two-run blast in the seventh. It was his third career regular season multi-homer game. All of them have come this season. He also had a multi-homer game in the 2015 World Series. The All-Star outfielder is locked in at the plate once again, batting .289/.406/.570 with 18 homers and 50 RBI through 78 games.

Edwin Encarnacion went 3-for-4 with a homer and four RBI on Friday, leading the Indians to a 13-3 rout over the Blue Jays.

Encarnacion was responsible for the bulk of the damage against his former club. He got the Indians on the board with a solo shot off of Marco Estrada in the second inning then added on a two-run double in the fifth to give them a 5-3 lead. He also added an RBI single during the eight-run seventh inning. With the three-hit attack, Encarnacion is hitting .261/.372/.485 with 20 homers and 54 RBI in his first season with the Tribe.

Yu Darvish struck out 12 batters while allowing three runs over eight innings in a no-decision against the Rays on Friday.

Darvish gave up five hits on the night, three of which were solo homers. Shin-Soo Choo took him off the hook for the loss with a game-tying homer in the ninth inning, but he remains winless dating back to June 12. This was Darvish’s 32nd career double-digit strikeout game, good enough for second in team history. Nolan Ryan ranks first with 34 of them. With Darvish’s name circulating in trade rumors, he might not get many more chances to climb that list.

Aaron Nola held the Brewers to just one run over eight innings as part of a 6-1 victory on Friday.

Nola gave up a solo homer to Brett Phillips in the second inning, but otherwise he held the Brewers off the board. He tied a career-high with nine strikeouts and walked a pair in the victory. Nola now owns a 1.70 ERA over his last six starts, once again showing that he’s capable of being a frontline starter when healthy.

Miguel Cabrera was removed from Friday's game against the Twins with an apparent injury after taking a ground ball to his chest.

Cabrera was drilled in the chest by a hard ground ball off the bat of Robbie Grossman in the fourth inning. The ball took a bad hop and hit him under his chin. While he was able to remain in the game and finish the inning defensively, he was pinch hit for during the next half inning. The Tigers should have an update on his status after the game.

Mike Fiers was outstanding in Friday's victory over the Orioles, racking up nine strikeouts over seven innings of one-run ball.

Fiers scattered six hits and a walk on the impressive evening. The only blemish on his night came on an RBI single by Jonathan Schoop in the third inning. He has been pitching out of his mind for awhile now, compiling a 2.36 ERA over his last 10 starts. He'll carry a 3.59 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 107/38 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's matchup against the Phillies in Philadelphia.

Ryon Healy was forced to leave Friday's game against the Mets after taking a ground ball to the face.

The ball was sharply hit, took a bad hop and appeared to hit him in the left temple area. Healy looked very shaken up afterwards and will head for further examination. Yonder Alonso replaced him in the field in the bottom of the sixth inning.
