Jarrod Saltalamacchia delivered a go-ahead grand slam in an 8-4 win over the Yankees on Friday.

Saltalamacchia took Preston Claiborne deep in the bottom of the seventh inning to put the Red Sox ahead. The 28-year-old finished the night 2-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored and has homered in consecutive games. After hitting 25 home runs in 121 games last season, Saltalamacchia has just 13 in 112 games this year. Still, with his 36 doubles, his slugging percentage (.454) is identical to last year.

Miguel Sano (hamstring) is back in the Twins' lineup Friday.

Sano has been dealing with a sore right hamstring of late and didn't play Thursday. He's in the designated hitter spot.
Sep 4 - 4:56 PM

Rockies activated 1B Justin Morneau from the 60-day disabled list.

It's cool to see Morneau make it back this season after battling more concussion issues as well as a neck injury for much of the year. The Rockies will surely be careful with him down the stretch, though. He's starting at first base Friday.
Sep 4 - 4:41 PM

Mike Moustakas (hamstring) remained out of the Royals' lineup Friday.

He's missed the last four contests with a strained hamstring. Cheslor Cuthbert is at third base again in Moustakas' place.
Sep 4 - 4:35 PM

Domonic Brown could be done for the season after being diagnosed with a concussion.

Brown suffered the injury when he flipped over an outfield side wall Wednesday. He'll have to follow Major League Baseball's concussion protocol before being cleared to action and it might be a long shot that we see him again this season. He's hit just .228/.284/.349 with five homers over 63 games with the Phillies this season.

Jose Iglesias will undergo more tests after his ailing right middle finger swelled up on him overnight.

Iglesias was diagnosed with just a bruise on Thursday, but his finger feels worse a day later and that's obviously not a good sign. The Tigers should have more on the shortstop's status at some point over the weekend.
Sep 4 - 4:19 PM

CC Sabathia (knee) will be activated from the disabled to start on Wednesday versus the Orioles.

Sabathia threw a 60-pitch simulated game Friday and came out of it with no issues. The Yankees don't plan to remove anyone from the rotation, so it looks like they'll go with a six-man alignment down the stretch. Sabathia has missed the last couple weeks with an arthritic right knee.
Sep 4 - 4:18 PM

Billy Hamilton (shoulder) will take batting practice Friday.

It will be the first time he's done so since he landed on the disabled list in mid-August with a sprained capsule in his right shoulder. Reds manager Bryan Price said it's possible Hamilton could be ready for a rehab assignment before the minor league season ends. That suggests he's not far off from a return if he can progress without any setbacks.
Sep 4 - 4:12 PM

Matt Holliday (quad) began jogging on the outfield grass Friday.

He did so under the watchful eye of the Cardinals' team doctor. Holliday has been hitting for a while, but he still has a long way to go in his running program progression. He's hoping to rejoin the big club in a couple weeks, but the Cards will be extra careful after they brought him back too quickly the first time.
Sep 4 - 4:04 PM

Daniel Murphy (quad) is not in the Mets' lineup Friday.

Murphy left Wednesday's game with a strained left quad. The Mets are saying it's a minor ailment and are considering him day-to-day. Murphy was given a cortisone injection and will be unavailable off the bench Friday.
Sep 4 - 3:58 PM

Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports that the Mets plan to stick with their innings plan for Matt Harvey that will allow him to pitch through the playoffs.

Harvey's agent, Scott Boras, made waves when he told CBS Sports' Jon Heyman that he thinks the club should shut the righty down when he reaches 180 innings (he's at 166 1/3 frames now). But, while they plan to skip Harvey once more and will also use a six-man rotation this month, they have no plans to shut the right-hander down altogether.
Sep 4 - 3:40 PM

Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

Ramirez hasn't played in over a week due to fatigue in his right shoulder. He remains day-to-day but there's been no indication of when he'll be back in there. Allen Craig is getting a start at first base Friday.
