Chris Johnson went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in the Braves' 3-1 win over the Phillies on Tuesday.

Those waiting for Johnson's magical season to end can stop holding their breath. Johnson now has nine home runs and a .337/.375/.481 line this season. Not only does he have a legitimate shot at a batting title, it might not be close.

Devon Travis (shoulder) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Orioles.

Travis left Monday's game against the Yankees with a left shoulder injury, but the severity isn't yet known. Darwin Barney is filling in at second base on Tuesday while Ezequiel Carrera will play right field and bat leadoff.
Sep 27 - 3:44 PM

Giants acquired INF Gordon Beckham from the Braves for cash considerations.

Beckham will give the Giants some infield depth this week with Eduardo Nunez and Brandon Crawford banged up, but he will not be eligible for the postseason. The 30-year-old is batting just .217/.300/.354 across 273 plate appearances this season.
Sep 27 - 3:41 PM

Starlin Castro (hamstring) has returned to the Yankees' lineup for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox.

Castro appeared as pinch-hitter during Monday's game and now he's ready to return to the starting lineup. He'll hit cleanup against David Price. The 26-year-old has been out for 10 days with a right hamstring strain.
Sep 27 - 3:35 PM

Daniel Murphy (glute) remains sidelined Tuesday.

Murphy has now missed nine straight starts with a strained left glute, but the Nationals are confident he'll be ready for the beginning of the NLDS. Stephen Drew is getting another start at second base on Tuesday.
Sep 27 - 3:32 PM

Bryce Harper (thumb) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

Fortunately, X-rays came back negative on Harper's left thumb, but Nationals manager Dusty Baker wants to give him another day. There's a chance he could play on Wednesday. Brian Goodwin will make another start in right field on Tuesday.
Sep 27 - 3:28 PM

Starling Marte (back) remains out of the Pirates' lineup again Tuesday against the Cubs.

Nagging back spasms have kept Marte out of the lineup since Thursday. It's unclear if or when he'll be able to return. Matt Joyce is starting in right field and hitting fifth.
Sep 27 - 3:20 PM

Gregory Polanco (face) is back in the Pirates' lineup Tuesday against the Cubs.

Polanco suffered a left facial contusion when he collided with the outfield fence on Friday, but he's feeling better now. He'll start in left field and bat second against John Lackey.
Sep 27 - 3:18 PM

Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Tuesday that Wilson Ramos was diagnosed with a torn ACL in his right knee.

He's obviously done for the year and will require surgery. Ramos previously tore the ACL and MCL in the very same knee back in 2012. It's absolutely brutal timing, not only with the playoffs days away, but also with him on the verge of hitting free agency. The 29-year-old was poised for a big payday after hitting .307/.354/.496 with 22 homers and 80 RBI over 131 games this season.
Sep 27 - 3:11 PM

Indians president Chris Antonetti said on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM on Tuesday that Corey Kluber (groin) will undergo an MRI.

Kluber was forced to make an early exit from Monday's start against the Tigers due to right groin tightness, but Antonetti is optimistic that it's nothing serious. We should know for sure soon. The Indians' rotation has already taken multiple hits down the stretch, so obviously it would be a tremendous blow if he also needs to miss some time.
Sep 27 - 3:10 PM

Kris Bryant is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Pirates.

Addison Russell, Jason Heyward, and Willson Contreras are also getting some rest for the Cubs as they look for their 101st victory of the season. Tommy La Stella will start at third base while Javier Baez will play second. Chris Coghlan and Ben Zobrist are in the corner outfield spots and Miguel Montero is behind the plate.
Sep 27 - 3:07 PM

Matt Kemp is not in Tuesday's lineup versus the Phillies.

He's presumably getting a day of rest. Mallex Smith will make the start in left field and hit eighth against right-hander Jerad Eickhoff.
