CC Sabathia struck out eight while allowing one run over 7 1/3 innings in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Red Sox.

The Sox didn't roll out a full post-clinch lineup -- regulars Xander Bogaerts, David Ortiz and Jackie Bradley Jr. were among the starters -- but Sabathia still had little trouble shutting them down in his final 2016 start. He ended on a high note, allowing one run or fewer in three of his final four starts to lower his overall ERA to 3.91. The 36-year-old has already said he hopes to pitch beyond 2017, and after showing he's still able to get hitters out this year, it will be interesting to see how he fares as he approaches his career's sunset.

Ivan Nova allowed a run over 5 1/3 innings against the Cubs on Thursday, getting a gift of a complete game in a 1-1 tie.

With the skies opened up and neither team playing for much -- the Bucs already eliminated from the postseason, the Cubs already owning home-field advantage through the NLCS -- the two teams decided to call it a night. Nova allowed four hits and didn't issue a free pass while striking out five before the rain came. The start brings to a close a successful career revitalization for the 29-year-old, who posted a 3.06 ERA with the Pirates after struggling early as a member of the Yankees. Nova owned a 4.17 ERA and 1.25 WHIP overall, and will be an interesting free agent case this winter.

Ubaldo Jimenez held the Blue Jays scoreless over 6 2/3 innings Thursday, allowing one hit in a 4-0 Orioles shutout.

Jimenez gave up a single to Ezequiel Carrera to lead off the game and nothing more, walking three and striking out five. The start was the last and easily the most important for Jimenez this year, pulling the O's into a tie with the Jays with three games left to play. For the 32-year-old, it was a strong end to an up and down season. Jimenez ends with an 8-12 record, 5.44 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 29 games, including 25 starts.

Joey Votto was forced to leave Thursday's game against the Cardinals after getting hit in the face by an errant throw from Tommy Pham.

Votto blooped a double into the outfield in the eighth inning, but Pham's throw came through and drilled him on the chin at second base. There was a considerable amount of blood on his face, though the injury isn't believed to be too serious. Expect the Reds to provide an update on his status after the game.

Jeremy Hellickson was forced to leave Thursday's start against in the fourth inning due to an apparent injury.

It's unclear exactly what occurred at this point, but the trainer came out to check on the veteran right-hander mid at-bat in the fourth inning and the decision was made to pull him out. It's a potentially devastating development for Hellickson, who has had a nice bounceback season in 2016 and is headed for free agency this winter. Expect an update from the Phillies on his status shortly.

Thursday's game between the Indians and Tigers has been postponed due to rain.

The game will be made up on Monday, if necessary, which could potentially throw a wrench into the Wild Card race. Scheduled starters Daniel Norris and Ryan Merritt will be pushed back to Friday.

X-rays on Mike Trout's left shoulder came back negative.

Trout exited Wednesday's game against the A's after being hit in the shoulder blade by a pitch, but he's expected to be fine. The hope is that he'll be ready to go on Friday versus the Astros.

Jesus Montero has been suspended 50 games by Major League Baseball for testing positive for dimethylbutylamine.

Montero has spent all of 2016 at Triple-A in the Blue Jays' organization, batting .317/.349/.438 with 11 homers. The former top prospect will turn 27 in November and his future in the majors is now looking as cloudy as ever.

The Indians have shot down a report from Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports that Michael Brantley (shoulder) could miss "significant time" next season.

Heyman's report said that Brantley's rehab from a second right shoulder surgery could drag past Opening Day next year, but the Indians don't think that will be the case. "Our expectation is that he'll be ready for spring training," said president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti. "We were told after the second surgery that the timeline (for recovery) would be four to five months. As far as I know, nothing has changed." There's no reason to doubt the Indians' belief that Brantley will be ready to go for Opening Day, but the reality is there's a lot up in the air with him given how this year went.

Devon Travis (shoulder) is back in the Blue Jays' starting lineup on Thursday night.

Travis missed a handful of games after injuring his left shoulder in Monday's benches-clearing fracas with the Yankees. He is starting at second base and batting ninth Thursday versus Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez.

Kris Bryant is out of the Cubs' starting lineup on Thursday night against the Pirates.

Anthony Rizzo and Dexter Fowler are also sitting as Cubs manager Joe Maddon continues to find rest for his regulars with the NLDS set to begin next week. Tommy La Stella is at third base and batting leadoff. Javier Baez is at first base and Albert Almora is in center field.
