According to the Marietta Daily Journal, the Braves will move into a new stadium in Cobb County, Georgia prior to the beginning of the 2017 regular season.

The report has now been confirmed by Braves officials. Cobb County is a northwest suburb of Atlanta, about 20 miles from the current site of 16-year-old Turner Field. The Braves moved into Turner Field in 1997, after it was built to serve as Olympic Stadium for the 1996 summer games. The team's 20-year lease at the park conveniently ends after the 2016 season. There are many surprising elements to this story, but the most surprising of all might be that the parties involved were able to keep information from leaking to the press throughout the various negotiating stages.

Anibal Sanchez (pectoral) will be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

Sanchez, out since August 8 with a pectoral strain, was cleared to return after making it through a simulated game Sunday with no issues. There's no enough time to get him stretched out as a starter, so he'll pitch as a starter in the final days of the regular season and into the playoffs.

Masahiro Tanaka feels good and is on track to start against the Red Sox on Saturday.

Good news. Tanaka looked sharp in his first start since July 8 on Sunday against the Blue Jays, allowing one run over 5 1/3 innings while striking out four and walking none. He threw 70 pitches in his return, but will be bumped up to 85 pitches for his final start of the season on Saturday. There haven't been many success stories with pitchers rehabbing a UCL tear, but things are looking up for Tanaka at the moment.

Adam Eaton was excused from the White Sox on Sunday due to a private family matter.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura is expected to offer more details about Eaton's situation Monday evening. The dynamic outfielder is batting .347/.399/.443 in 185 plate appearances since the All-Star break.

Steve Pearce (wrist) is aiming to return Wednesday.

Pearce got a cortisone shot in his sore right wrist on Saturday and told reporters Monday that he already feels much better. The Orioles have already clinched the American League East, so they can play it safe.
Sep 22 - 3:50 PM

Chris Young has been moved to the Mariners' bullpen.

The veteran right-hander was scheduled to make his final regular-season start on Thursday against the Blue Jays, but the M's need to rack up as many victories as possible over this final week and aren't confident right now about what Young might give them. He had a great first half, but Young was lit up for seven runs in just three innings Saturday by a weak Astros team and owns an 8.35 ERA over his last five outings.
Sep 22 - 3:48 PM

Nick Markakis (shoulder) is back in the Orioles' starting lineup on Monday against the Yankees.

It'll be his first start since taking a pitch off his right shoulder last Tuesday. Markakis is batting .272/.336/.375 with 12 home runs and 44 RBI in 149 games this season for the American League East champions.
Sep 22 - 3:41 PM

Matt Adams (illness) is back in the Cardinals' lineup Monday evening versus the Cubs.

Adams was out Saturday and Sunday with a stomach bug. He's playing first base and hitting sixth as the Cardinals open a three-game series at Wrigley Field.

Matt Carpenter (illness) is back in the Cardinals' starting lineup Monday against the Cubs.

Carpenter sat out Saturday and Sunday due to a stomach bug that has made its way around the Cardinals' clubhouse. He'll bat leadoff and play third base Monday.
Sep 22 - 3:37 PM

Mark Teixeira (wrist) is out of the Yankees' starting lineup again on Monday night.

Teixeira also sat out Saturday due to lingering soreness in his right wrist. He was recently given another cortisone shot -- his third of the season -- and is hoping to return to action at some point this week. Francisco Cervelli is at third base Monday against the Orioles.
Sep 22 - 3:32 PM

Jason Kipnis (hamstring) won't play for the Indians on Monday night against the Royals.

Kipnis will be replaced by Justin Sellers to finish out the suspended game (which begins at 6:05 p.m. ET) and he won't be in the starting lineup for the full game to be played after that. The second baseman tweaked his hamstring on Thursday and is still sore. He has a dissapointing .234/.314/.335 slash line this season.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Mets are picking up their 2015 option on GM Sandy Alderson and "progressing toward" a contract extension.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says it'll be a three-year deal; now let's see if ownership allows him to spend some money. The Mets are headed to their fourth straight losing season under Alderson, but the club has developed a decent nucleus of players (especially on the pitching staff) and will push forward with the former A's and Padres executive at the helm. The Mets are also bringing back manager Terry Collins for the 2015 season.
