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.

Jason Kipnis (hamstring) won't play for the Indians on Monday night against the Royals.

Kipnis will be replaced by Justin Sellers to finish out the suspended game (which begins at 6:05 p.m. ET) and he won't be in the starting lineup for the full game to be played after that. The second baseman tweaked his hamstring on Thursday and is still sore. He has a dissapointing .234/.314/.335 slash line this season.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Mets are picking up their 2015 option on GM Sandy Alderson and "progressing toward" a contract extension.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says it'll be a three-year deal; now let's see if ownership allows him to spend some money. The Mets are headed to their fourth straight losing season under Alderson, but the club has developed a decent nucleus of players (especially on the pitching staff) and will push forward with the former A's and Padres executive at the helm. The Mets are also bringing back manager Terry Collins for the 2015 season.

Adam LaRoche said this weekend that he doesn't expect to re-sign with the Nationals over the winter.

"If you had to ask me now, I would assume that I would have to move on, unfortunately," said the veteran first baseman, who is in the final year of a two-year, $24 million contract. Washington holds a $15 million option on LaRoche for 2015, but Ryan Zimmerman is probably going to have to move across the diamond for good and so the option on LaRoche likely won't be exercised.

According to Ben Badler of Baseball America, the Rangers will hold a private workout for Cuban slugger Yasmani Tomas on Wednesday in the Dominican Republic.

The Rangers attended Tomas' open showcase on Sunday but now want to get a closer, more personal look. The Phillies are holding a private workout for Tomas on Monday and the Padres, Yankees, Diamondbacks, Giants, Red Sox, and Mets are also known to have serious interest. Tomas, a powerful 23-year-old corner outfielder, could command more than $100 million this winter. He has established residency in Haiti and is waiting to be cleared as a free agent by Major League Baseball. That should come soon.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Braves have fired general manager Frank Wren.

David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported early Monday morning that the club was leaning this way, and the hammer came down quickly. Wren had a good amount of overall success in his seven years as Atlanta's general manager, but somebody had to take the fall for this year's late-season collapse and it'll be Wren instead of manager Fredi Gonzalez. John Hart will take over as interim GM in Atlanta and retired skipper Bobby Cox will help lead the search for a permanent replacement. The last GM fired from the Braves was John Mullen, the man who signed Hank Aaron. It's not an organization that likes to make drastic off-the-field changes.

Desmond Jennings (knee) is done for the season.

Jennings has been on the shelf since August 28 due to discomfort in his left knee. It's beginning to show improvement, but the Rays aren't going to rush him back for the final week. "It's gotten better, it's coming along," Jennings told reporters Sunday evening. "I was worried at first, I'm not really as worried now."

Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) tossed a perfect inning Sunday in his first appearance since August 26.

Benoit missed close to a month with a right shoulder injury. He struck out two of the three batters he faced Sunday in his return to action and could rack up another save or two before the 2014 regular season comes to a close. Benoit owns a stellar 1.55 ERA, 0.80 WHIP, and 62/14 K/BB ratio in 52 1/3 innings this season.
Sep 22 - 8:30 AM

Mat Latos (elbow) has been shut down for the remainder of the 2014 season.

Latos, who has missed a large chunk of the 2014 campaign due to various injuries, is struggling to recover from a bone bruise in his right elbow. He'll finish the season 5-5 with a 3.25 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 74/23 K/BB ratio over 102 1/3 innings. Daniel Corcino will get the ball in his place again on Wednesday against the Brewers.

Jay Bruce clobbered a pair of home runs and drove home three, leading the Reds to a 7-2 victory over the Cardinals in St. Louis.

Bruce opened up the game's scoring with a solo blast off opposing starter Lance Lynn in the fourth inning, chipped in an RBI single in the sixth and added his second long ball in the eighth inning. It's been a disappointing year for the 27-year-old slugger, hitting just .217/.283/.377 with 18 homers and 65 RBI.

Yasmani Grandal doubled and had three RBI as the Padres bested the Giants 8-2 on Sunday.

Grandal brought home a run with a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning before belting a two-run double in the seventh. Grandal has now doubled in three straight contests and has scored a run in four straight games. The catcher, who has filled in at first base in Yonder Alonso's absence, is batting a paltry .219/.316/.388 overall this year.
