Twins transferred OF Wilkin Ramirez to the 60-day disabled list.

This was done to open a spot on the 40-man roster. Ramirez is sidelined for the remainder of the season after fracturing his left tibia when fouling a pitch off his leg in late August. He is expected to be fully healthy for spring training.

Carlos Gonzalez is not in the Rockies' lineup Saturday against the Dodgers.

Gerardo Parra will fill in at right field and bat fifth. It's a convenient night for Gonzalez to take a breather, as he holds a .199 career average in 36 at-bats against Clayton Kershaw.

DJ LeMahieu is not in the Rockies' lineup Saturday against the Dodgers.

He's just getting a routine day off. LeMahieu has had a career year for the Rockies and is on the cusp of winning his first batting title. Rookie Pat Valaika will draw the start at second base Saturday while batting seventh against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw.

X-rays Ken Giles' injured right wrist came back negative.

Well that's a relief. Giles went down with a scary wrist injury after getting smoked by a line drive in batting practice but it looks like he's going to be okay. The Astros are calling his injury a "right wrist contusion." It's safe to assume Giles won't be available against Oakland on Saturday (he probably wouldn't have been anyway after blowing a two-run lead the night before) but he shouldn't miss much time. Consider him day-to-day.

Rich Hill (blister) will have his start skipped Sunday against the Rockies.

Here we go again. The Dodgers are still concerned about Hill's lingering blister issues, though he's expected to start against the Giants next weekend. The Dodgers' priority is to have Hill healthy for the postseason. Brandon McCarthy will start Sunday's series finale at Chavez Ravine.

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale doesn't expect Zack Greinke (shoulder) to pitch again this season.

Neither do we. Greinke underwent an MRI after battling shoulder stiffness in his last start and there's just not enough time left in the season for him to make a full recovery. Greinke's first year with the Diamondbacks couldn't have gone much worse. The former Cy Young winner recorded an underwhelming 4.37 ERA over 26 starts starts and couldn't stay healthy. Set to turn 33 next month, it looks like Greinke's best days are behind him.

Eric Hosmer dealt a blow to the Tigers playoff chances on Saturday, clubbing a three-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning, propelling the Royals to a 7-4 victory in Motown.

The Royals entered the inning trailing 4-2 and were down to their final strike before Paulo Orlando came through with a two-run double to tie the game. That set the stage for Hosmer's heroic blast off of Tigers' closer Francisco Rodriguez. It was Hosmer's lone hit in five at-bats on the afternoon. He's been a terrific source of run production this season, slashing .268/.329/.434 with 24 homers and 100 RBI.

Mets manager Terry Collins said if Steven Matz (shoulder) returns this year it will likely be as a reliever.

Matz has endured numerous setbacks in his recovery from a strained shoulder and with only a handful of games left in the regular season, there simply isn't enough time to stretch him out. The lefty had been scheduled to pitch Friday against the Phillies but was scratched after feeling renewed shoulder soreness. He hasn't pitched in a game since August 14.
Sep 24 - 4:56 PM

Yadier Molina went 3-for-4 and drove home four runs on Saturday as the Cardinals smashed the Cubs 10-4.

Molina got the scoring started with a two-run double in the first inning, then added on to the rout with a two-run single in the seventh. He has had a nice bounceback season offensively, slashing .300/.354/.413 with seven homers and 53 RBI.
Sep 24 - 4:51 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Pablo Sandoval (shoulder) could return this season "if the need arises."

Sandoval is well ahead of schedule in his recovery from shoulder surgery. He's made two appearances in the fall instructional league at DH and took batting practice with the Red Sox on Saturday. It's still a long shot but there's an outside chance Panda could make the postseason roster, particularly if something happens to Aaron Hill, Travis Shaw or Brock Holt over the next week.
Sep 24 - 4:34 PM

Adrian Beltre, Rougned Odor and a host of other Rangers are getting the day off for Saturday's game against the Athletics.

Jonathan Lucroy, Carlos Beltran, Ian Desmond and Mitch Moreland are taking a seat as well. The Rangesr have already clinched the division title in the American League West, the only thing left to play for is home field advantage throughout the playoffs. Expect to see their regulars sporadically receiving rest over the final week and a half.
Sep 24 - 1:37 PM

Jorge Soler returned to the Cubs starting lineup on Saturday.

Soler has been held out of the lineup since experiencing tightness in his side last Friday. He's getting the start in left field and will bat seventh against Alex Reyes and the Cardinals on Saturday.
