Latest Headlines

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Giants and Hunter Pence are closing in on a $90 million deal.

It was reported earlier in the day that the two sides were closing in on an agreement, and now it looks like that story has gained traction. While Pence could almost assuredly make more by testing the open market, he appears content with his surroundings and enjoys being in San Francisco.

Masahiro Tanaka (forearm) played catch Tuesday and is planning to start Saturday.

But it's not clear if the Yankees will allow him to go ahead with that start given that they're pretty much out of Wild Card contention (and will almost certainly be eliminated by Saturday). Tanaka was scratched from his scheduled start Monday night against the Blue Jays after being diagnosed with a slight forearm strain. There should be something more official in a couple days.

Tigers activated 3B Nick Castellanos from the 15-day disabled list.

Castellanos wound up missing just over seven weeks with a fractured left hand. He will be available off the Tigers' bench on Tuesday night and should return to the starting lineup Wednesday. The young third baseman was batting .286/.331/.500 with 18 home runs and 58 RBI in 105 games before the injury.
Sep 27 - 4:45 PM

Kevin Kiermaier (hand) is out again Tuesday.

Kiermaier was hit in the hand by a pitch on Sunday afternoon and is still dealing with some discomfort. He probably shouldn't be counted on in fantasy leagues over these final six games.
Sep 27 - 4:41 PM

Lorenzo Cain (wrist) is done for the year.

Cain hadn't played since September 9 due to a wrist injury and there's no point in rushing him back for the final few games of the 2016 regular season. The star center fielder finishes with a .287/.339/.408 slash line, nine homers, 56 RBI, and 14 steals over 397 at-bats.
Sep 27 - 4:39 PM

Steven Matz (elbow, shoulder) is done for the year.

Matz doesn't need shoulder surgery, which is good news, but he will go under the knife for a bone spur in his left elbow. The young southpaw finishes the 2016 campaign with a 3.40 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 129/31 K/BB ratio in 132 1/3 innings. He should be ready for the start of spring training next February.
Sep 27 - 4:35 PM

Devon Travis (shoulder) is considered day-to-day.

Travis got tangled up in Monday night's benches-clearing brawl with the Yankees, suffering an injury to his left shoulder that he then aggravated on a swing later in the game. It's not clear when he might return. Joaquin Benoit also suffered an injury -- a calf tear, to be exact -- in that pointless fracas Monday.
Sep 27 - 4:31 PM

Matt Carpenter (finger) is back in the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday night.

Carpenter has been dealing with a right ring finger injury and sat out of Monday's blowout loss to the Reds, but it's apparently nothing serious. He'll start at first base and bat leadoff Tuesday versus Cincinnati right-hander Robert Stephenson.
Sep 27 - 4:27 PM

Joaquin Benoit has been diagnosed with a torn muscle in his calf.

He won't pitch again in the regular season, but it sounds like the veteran reliever could be an option at some point in October if the Blue Jays are able to make a deep postseason run. Benoit suffered the injury during Monday's benches-clearing fracas with the Yankees. He had registered a fantastic 0.38 ERA in 23 2/3 innings with Toronto.
Sep 27 - 4:22 PM

Nelson Cruz (wrist) is in the Mariners' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Astros.

The MRI taken Monday on his sore left wrist apparently showed nothing of concern. Cruz is starting at DH and batting cleanup versus Astros right-hander Mike Fiers.
Sep 27 - 4:19 PM

Aledmys Diaz is back in the Cardinals' lineup on Tuesday night against the Reds.

Diaz was excused from the club on Monday to visit and mourn with the family of Jose Fernandez in Miami. The two grew up together in Cuba. Diaz will start at shortstop and bat seventh Tuesday versus Reds right-hander Robert Stephenson.
Sep 27 - 4:08 PM

Jason Kipnis is out of the Indians' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Tigers.

Mike Napoli, Jose Ramirez, and Francisco Lindor will also sit after the Indians clinched the American League Central on Monday night. Tigers ace Justin Verlander should dominate this particular Cleveland lineup.
