Phillies top shortstop prospect Roman Quinn ruptured his right Achilles tendon while running sprints near his Florida home and is out indefinitely.

"It just popped," Joe Jordan, the Phillies' director of player development, said. "He thought he stepped in a hole. It's really a tough one." Quinn, 20, was recently ranked by Baseball America as Philadelphia's fifth-best prospect. He was even higher entering the 2013 season, but missed significant game action with a fractured bone in his left wrist. Quinn has already undergone surgery on his Achilles and begun a rehab program, and he might soon go under the knife again to improve the prognosis of his troublesome wrist. "Obviously, next year is going to be impacted," Jordan said. "We just have to see how he heals. We might be looking at the second half of the year. It would be great if we can get that."

Adam LaRoche (back) is out of the Nationals' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Dodgers.

LaRoche was likely to sit anyway against Dodgers ace left-hander Clayton Kershaw, but he aggravated a lingering back injury on Monday and could miss much of this week.

Diamondbacks activated OF A.J. Pollock from the 15-day disabled list.

Pollock missed three whole months with a fractured right hand. He has always been a highly-productive player when healthy and should carry sneaky fantasy value down the stretch this season. The 26-year-old outfielder boasts 16 home runs, 21 stolen bases, and 100 runs scored in 220 career games at the major league level. Arizona also activated shortstop Chris Owings (shoulder) from the disabled list on Tuesday.

Michael Wacha (shoulder) will return to the Cardinals' starting rotation Thursday versus the Brewers.

Wacha threw only 34 pitches in his rehab debut on Sunday at Double-A Springfield, so he'll have to be piggybacked in his return to the Cardinals on Thursday in Milwaukee. The 23-year-old right-hander has been on the shelf since late June because of a stress reaction in his shoulder. He owns a fantastic 2.79 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and 148/45 K/BB ratio in 155 career major league innings and should provide the Cards with a huge boost for the stretch run.
Sep 2 - 5:20 PM

Carlos Gomez (wrist) is expected to miss at least another week, if not more.

That's awful news for the Brewers, who were leapfrogged by the Cardinals in the National League Central standings on Monday and are now going to be without one of their best players until probably mid-September. Gomez injured his left wrist Sunday in San Francisco and was wearing a brace on it Tuesday in Chicago.
Sep 2 - 5:18 PM

Desmond Jennings (knee) remains sidelined on Tuesday.

Jennings has been out since last Friday because of soreness in his left knee. An MRI was taken over the weekend and showed no structural damage, but the outfielder told reporters Tuesday that he hasn't felt much improvement. It's not clear when he might return.
Sep 2 - 5:14 PM

Kolten Wong (neck) is not in the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Pirates.

Wong banged his head on the ground Sunday while trying to make a diving catch. A concussion has been ruled out, but his neck is sore and he's still considered day-to-day despite slugging a game-tying two-run homer in the Cardinals' defeat of the Pirates on Labor Day.
Sep 2 - 4:58 PM

An MRI taken Tuesday on Anthony Rizzo's lower back revealed a muscle strain.

Cubs manager Rick Renteria acknowledged to reporters Tuesday that Rizzo would be placed on the 15-day disabled list if rosters hadn't expanded, so it's going to be a while before the first baseman returns to the lineup. He has been sidelined since August 26.
Sep 2 - 4:47 PM

Pirates recalled OF Gregory Polanco from Triple-A Indianapolis.

Polanco was sent to the minors on August 25 in the midst of a 1-for-30 slump. The Pirates need him to get back on track offensively as they try to work their way to the top of the National League Central standings. The 22-year-old outfielder is capable of carrying significant fantasy value down the stretch if he gets right.
Sep 2 - 4:33 PM

Maikel Franco will make his major league debut Tuesday against the Braves.

Franco, who was called up after Monday's game, will bat seventh and play third base Tuesday with left-hander Mike Minor on the hill for Atlanta. The 22-year-old might not play everyday in September, but he should be on the radar in mixed fantasy leagues.
Sep 2 - 3:24 PM

J.J. Hardy (back) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Reds.

Hardy left Monday's game due to lower back spasms and will get a day of rest. Ryan Flaherty will make the start at shortstop.
Sep 2 - 3:12 PM

Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild said that Masahiro Tanaka (elbow) was "fine" after long toss and throwing off flat ground on Tuesday.

Tanaka was briefly shut down last week due to "general soreness" in his pitching arm, but he appears to be back on track. Still, Rothschild said that the Yankees are taking things "day-to-day" with him, so he's still a long way from pitching in a game before the end of the year.
