Mariners signed OF Corey Hart to a one-year, $5 million contract.

The deal carries another $8 million in performance-based incentives. The Mariners are saying that Justin Smoak will remain the starting first baseman, so Hart appears likely to operate between the corner outfield spots and DH. He missed the entire 2013 season due to knee issues, but the 31-year-old slugger has always been an excellent hitter when healthy and is expected to be 100 percent heading into 2014.

Nolan Arenado (pneumonia) could miss the rest of the season.

Arenado came out of Sunday's game with a chest contusion and an MRI on Monday revealed signs of pneumonia. He's doing better, but there just might not be enough time for him to make it back at this point.

Jordy Mercer (back) has returned to the Pirates' lineup Thursday against the Red Sox.

Mercer had his back tighten up on him Tuesday and ended up missing consecutive games, but he's feeling better now. He'll bat seventh against Brandon Workman.

Hanley Ramirez (elbow) is back in Thursday's lineup against the Cubs.

Ramirez has missed the last two games with a strained right elbow, but he'll try to give it a go. He'll bat fifth against southpaw Tsuyoshi Wada.

Jose Fernandez (elbow) will have a checkup Thursday.

If all goes well, he should begin a throwing program on October 1. Fernandez underwent Tommy John surgery in mid-May and will likely miss most of the first half next season.

Jered Weaver has been scratched from Thursday's start against the Mariners.

It's not injury-related, as the Angels wrapped up the division Wednesday night and will give him a day to rest after the celebration. It will also allow them to line him up as they want for the postseason. Wade LeBlanc will start instead Thursday.

Anthony Rizzo is not in the Cubs' starting lineup on Thursday night against the Dodgers.

Rizzo missed nearly three weeks between late August and mid-September with a back problem, and the Cubs are planning to rest him every other day down the stretch as to avoid a re-injury. Mike Olt is starting at first base on Thursday versus Los Angeles.

David Ortiz is back in the Red Sox starting lineup on Thursday night versus the Pirates.

Ortiz was away from the Red Sox for much of this week due to a private family emergency. He is starting at first base for Boston on Thursday at PNC Park.

Rusney Castillo is not in the Red Sox starting lineup Thursday night against the Pirates.

According to Marc Carig of Newsday, the Mets are sending three scouts to the Dominican Republic for Yasmani Tomas' showcase on Sunday.

Just about every team in baseball is expected to send a representative to the workout. Tomas defected from his native Cuba in June and was cleared for employment in the United States last week by the Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control. The 23-year-old corner outfielder could command more than $100 million.

Ron Washington acknowledged in a press conference Thursday that an incident involving infidelity led to his sudden resignation from the Rangers.

Washington didn't get into much detail and did not take questions from the gathered media. "I was not true to my wife," he admitted in a statement that lasted a little over three minutes. "After 42 years I broke my trust. I'm here today to own that and apologize to those I disappointed ... I look to the future and getting back to the game and my career."
