Domonic Brown left Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks with right heel soreness.

The injury doesn't appear to be serious enough to warrant a trip to the disabled list, and Brown should be considered day-to-day. John Mayberry replaced him Saturday.

Bryce Harper (knee) ran the bases, shagged flyballs and took batting practice on Friday.

He hadn't been slated to take BP until Saturday, so the fact that it was moved up would seem to be a good sign. The goal for Harper, obviously, is to get a few games under his belt before the playoffs. He's been sidelined since mid-August with a bone bruise in his left knee and left calf strain.

Lance McCullers has officially been cleared to start Sunday against the White Sox.

McCullers hasn't started since September 6 due to arm fatigue, but he got through a bullpen session Wednesday with no issues. The righty has dealt with injuries and ineffectiveness in the second half, so he really needs to put up a couple nice outings here down the stretch for the Astros to feel good about giving him a start in the ALDS. Collin McHugh will be pushed back to Monday.

Braves manager Brian Snitker said Friday that it's possible Michael Foltynewicz (finger) won't make another start this season.

It was reported Thursday that the team was optimistic Foltynewicz would start on Monday after missing a turn with a laceration on his right index finger, but he's either had a setback or the Braves just decided not to push him. It would end a season filled with ups and down, as Folty has shown flashes of brilliance and struck out nearly a batter per inning, but he's ultimately posted a 4.79 ERA and 1.48 WHIP across 154 frames.

The Tigers will not offer manager Brad Ausmus a contract for next season.

General manager Al Avila announced the decision on Friday. It comes as no surprise, as Ausmus has seemingly been on the hot seat for a while now. The Tigers have gone 62-91 this season and will miss the postseason for the third straight year.
Sep 22 - 4:16 PM

Brett Gardner (shoulder) is not in the Yankees' lineup Friday.

Gardner left Wednesday's game after being hit on the shoulder by a pitch, and he's obviously still sore. He should be back in there Saturday. Clint Frazier is in left field. Greg Bird is also sitting out Friday in favor of Chase Headley, who will cover first base.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson indicated Friday that the team plans to tender Matt Harvey a contract this offseason.

There had been some speculation that the Mets could non-tender Harvey rather than pay him over $5 million in his final year of arbitration eligibility following an awful 2017 campaign. However, it appears that Harvey will come back for another year and the Mets will hope he can improve as he's further removed from thoracic outlet surgery. Harvey holds a 6.59 ERA over 17 starts this season.
Sep 22 - 4:00 PM

Noah Syndergaard (lat) will start Saturday's game against the Nationals and pitch one inning.

He'll be followed by Matt Harvey, who had been scheduled for the start. It will be Syndergaard's first appearance in the majors since late April, when he went down with a torn right lat muscle. Syndergaard would presumably be lined up for one final start next week, but you can't trust him in fantasy leagues given the long layoff and limited workload. More than anything else, this is more about giving Thor and the Mets some peace of mind about the right-hander's health going into the offseason.
Sep 22 - 3:53 PM

Billy Hamilton (thumb) is in the Reds' lineup Friday.

Hamilton surprisingly returned from the disabled list Wednesday, but this will be his first game since being activated after missing a couple weeks with a fractured left thumb. He's almost surely not going to be 100 percent at the plate, but you know he's going to run if he gets on base. Hamilton is trying to hang on to his major league-leading stolen base total. He is currently three pilfers ahead of Dee Gordon (58 to 55).

Reds signed C Tucker Barnhart to a four-year, $15.5 million contract extension with a $7.5 million club option for 2022.

The buyout on the option is $500,000, so he's guaranteed at least $16 million with his new contract. Barnhart had been set for his first year of arbitration eligibility this offseason, but now he's locked up for at least one and possibly two free agent years. The 26-year-old has hit a solid .264/.336/.389 over the last two seasons for the Reds and has rated very well in terms of defensive metrics both years. The Reds owe Devin Mesoraco $13.125 million in 2018 in his last year under contract, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see them try to unload him this winter.
Sep 22 - 9:23 AM

Kris Bryant went 3-for-4 with a game-winning, two-run home run in the 10th inning to lead the Cubs past the Brewers 5-3 on Thursday.

Oliver Drake threw Bryant a high, straight, 91-mph fastball, and the slugger knew what to do with it, crushing it out to the deepest part of the ballpark. The homer was Bryant's 28th of the season, giving him 69 RBI and 105 runs scored. He's been especially hot since the start of the Mets series eight days ago, going 13-for-33 with three doubles, three homers, 10 RBI and 10 runs scored to raise his overall line to .292/.406/.536.
Sep 22 - 1:49 AM

Joe Mauer went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored to help the Twins beat up on the Tigers 12-1 on Thursday.

Mauer bopped a two-run double in the sixth inning to extend the Twins' lead, one of the team's 14 hits on the night. It's no surprise that Mauer had three of them, as he's been lighting the world on fire this month. Coming into Thursday's game, the 34-year-old was hitting .375/.418/.514 in September, and after it he's batting .311/.388/.427 overall. In a year with some really terrific reclamation projects, none are better to see than Mauer's.
