Latest Headlines

Mike Zunino launched a pair of solo homers in Wednesday's 6-0 victory over the Royals.

He finished 2-for-4. Zunino, 22, hasn't excelled offensively this season, but his potential was on full display this evening. The rookie backstop is slashing .215/.295/.337 with five homers and 14 RBI over 49 games.

Daniel Nava went 2-for-3 with a walk and a three-run home run as the Red Sox slugged their way to a win against the Yankees on Tuesday.

Nava helped put the Red Sox up 5-0 with his three-run blast off of Shane Greene in the third inning, his third homer of the year. It was his first long ball since April 15. Nava has done well in the on-base department but has otherwise not done much, slashing .263/.340/.345 with 23 RBI.

Martin Prado left Tuesday's game versus the Red Sox with a left hamstring injury.

Prado singled and hit a solo homer in three at-bats before exiting. He's headed to the doctor to be examined before it's determined how much time he might miss.

Juan Lagares had a perfect night at the plate, going 4-for-4 with a walk, a double, two RBI, three runs scored, and two stolen bases in Tuesday's win over the Marlins.

This is what we refer to as "filling up the box score". Lagares has stolen bases in four out of his last five games, as manager Terry Collins has said he wants his center fielder to show off his speed on the base paths on a more frequent basis. Lagares is slashing .282/.321/.389 with four home runs, 44 RBI, and nine stolen bases.

Kyle Kendrick put together his best start of the season, shutting the Braves out over seven innings to earn his eighth win of the season on Tuesday.

Kendrick has had a rough season, entering the evening with the fifth-worst ERA among all qualified starters. But he got to face the slumping Braves, the victims of Monday's combined no-hitter. Kendrick limited the Braves to a mere three hits and two walks while striking out four. The right-hander lowered his ERA to 4.77 and carries a 1.37 WHIP and 103/48 K/BB ratio. Kendrick will face the Pirates at home on Monday in his next start.

Starlin Castro will undergo an MRI after exiting Tuesday's game versus the Brewers with a left ankle injury.

The good news is that initial tests ruled out a fracture. Castro was injured when he got his foot caught in the dirt while sliding in to score a run in the first inning. The Cubs could have another update on the shortstop later Tuesday.
Sep 2 - 9:06 PM

Justin Upton is considered day-to-day after exiting Tuesday's game with a left triceps contusion.

It's not clear how Upton suffered the injury, but it appears that it's not a major concern. The Braves have a day game Wednesday and are off Thursday, so it seems likely that we won't see Upton again until Friday.
Sep 2 - 9:01 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury returned to the Yankees' lineup Tuesday.

Ellsbury missed the last two starts with a left ankle injury, though he did have a pinch-hit double Sunday. The outfielder got three days of rest with Monday's off day and is now ready to roll. He enters play Tuesday with a .288/.348/.435 batting line, 14 homers and 37 steals.

Masahiro Tanaka (elbow) will throw a bullpen session later this week.

Tanaka was cleared for mound work again after a flat-ground throwing session on Tuesday went well. He was shut down a bit due to arm fatigue, but it appears it was just a minor bump in the road. "Every manual test that they did came out really well," Yankees manager Girardi said. "They just said he had some arm fatigue. He's scheduled to throw a bullpen [session] sometime this week and hopefully he's ready to do it." Tanaka still isn't a great bet to make it back this season.
Sep 2 - 8:09 PM

The Athletics are hoping that Coco Crisp (neck) will be ready to return to the lineup by this weekend.

Crisp received more injections for his ailing neck Tuesday. The outfielder figures to be a day-to-day proposition for the rest of the season, so fantasy owners can't count on a whole lot. Those in weekly leagues might want to just cut bait if you're in a roster bind.
Sep 2 - 6:59 PM

Michael Morse will miss the rest of the Giants' road trip after being diagnosed with a strained left oblique.

It was originally reported that Morse tweaked his hip during batting practice Monday, but apparently it's his oblique that's the issue. It's possible he could be ready to play when the Giants begin a homestand in a week. Gregor Blanco is getting another start in left field Tuesday.
Sep 2 - 6:54 PM

Carlos Gomez (wrist) will be shut down for a week from baseball activities.

An earlier report stated that Gomez could miss a week of action, but he won't even be doing anything at all baseball-wise for a week. That means he likely won't be back in the lineup for at least two weeks. It's obviously a huge blow to the fading Brewers as they compete for the NL Central crown.
