Ben Badler of Baseball America reports that the Rakuten Golden Eagles are expected to announce on Tuesday or Wednesday whether they will post Masahiro Tanaka.

Tanaka is currently in Tokyo making appearances at events on Sunday and Monday. He will then meet with Rakuten on Tuesday or Wednesday, at which point the club will inform him of their decision. Reports have surfaced that the Golden Eagles will not post Tanaka, but the team has insisted that they have not yet made up their minds. Either way, it appears the drama will all be over soon.

Kyle Schwarber will be sidelined for at least 3-5 days after being diagnosed with a right rib cage strain.

Well, it could have been worse. Schwarber will be re-evaluated in 3-5 days to see how much progress he's made and could return to the lineup at that time. The impressive rookie injured his ribs when he dove after a ball Tuesday and felt soreness the following day while taking batting practice.

Josh Johnson (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Lake Elsinore on Friday.

He'll throw one inning Friday and is set for another inning for Lake Elsinore on Monday. It looks like the Padres will bring Johnson back as a reliever, assuming he makes it back at all. He hasn't pitched in a game since August of 2013 and has had numerous setbacks along the way as he works his way back from a second Tommy John surgery.

Lucas Duda (back) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Binghamton on Saturday.

Duda hasn't recovered quite as quickly as hoped from a thoracic herniation in his back, but it does look like he'll be activated in a few days. The Mets figure to be careful with his playing time down the stretch.
Sep 4 - 10:43 AM

Carlos Carrasco (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session on Friday.

If it goes well, Carrasco could rejoin the Indians' rotation early next week during the series against the Royals. The right-hander has missed the last two weeks with a shoulder injury, but he was cleared of any structural damage and Cleveland is confident the ailment isn't a big deal.

Yangervis Solarte finished with a huge game in Thursday's 10-7 win over the Dodgers, going 4-for-5 with a solo home run, two doubles and three runs scored.

Tight effort by Solarte, who played a key role in the Padres' come-from-behind win. He cracked a solo homer in the seventh to draw his team to within 7-6, then finished off the night's scoring with an RBI double in a four-run eighth. The strong performance boosted the 28-year-old infielder's season triple-slash to .267/.321/.428. He's also hit 12 homers and driven in 55. This is the first season in which Solarte's seen more than 252 at-bats.
Sep 4 - 1:52 AM

Top Dodgers prospect Corey Seager went 2-for-4 with a double, a two-run single and two runs scored in Thursday's 10-7 loss to the Padres.

Seager's two-run single in the sixth gave the Dodgers a 6-5 lead, but their bullpen would collapse in the late innings as they stole defeat from the jaws of victory. The 21-year-old shortstop is one of the top position prospects in the game and could make an immediate impact down the stretch, though his true fantasy value probably won't surface until he's installed for an entire season. Prior to Thursday's promotion, he hit to a .292/.343/.486 batting line with 18 homers and 74 RBI while splitting time between Double-A and Triple-A over the course of 124 games.
Sep 4 - 1:43 AM

Carlos Gonzalez had another spectacular game Thursday, going 4-for-5 with two homers and four RBI in an 11-3 drubbing of the Giants.

Gonzalez had a career-high seven RBI in a two-homer game against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday. He's the seventh player this year to have consecutive two-homer games, which is particularly impressive since he was also the fourth back on July 25-26. Gonzalez is now tops in the NL with 35 homers, one more than teammate Nolan Arenado. He's hit 31 of those in his last 76 games.
Sep 4 - 12:10 AM

Andrew McCutchen acknowledged Thursday that he's dealing with a "tight Achilles."

McCutchen made sure to say that his knee isn't the issue, but he admitted that he's been feeling "a little sore" and "hobbling around a little bit." He's not in the starting lineup Thursday, but we expect him back for Friday's series opener against the Cardinals.
Sep 3 - 5:15 PM

Daniel Murphy is dealing with a mild strain of his left quad.

Murphy left Wednesday's game with what was described as "mild discomfort" in his quad. He missed some time earlier this year with the same injury and has apparently been playing through it again in recent days. The Mets are calling him day-to-day for now.
Sep 3 - 4:42 PM

Eddie Rosario connected for a grand slam in the third inning of Thursday afternoon's 6-4 loss to the White Sox.

An Eduardo Escobar infield single and a pair of walks issued by White Sox starter Jeff Samardzija set the stage for Rosario to work his grand salami magic with two outs in the third inning. The 23-year-old outfielder is posting one of the sneakier productive seasons in the bigs in 2015, as he maintains a .271/.291/.446 triple-slash with nine homers, 10 triples, 37 RBI and 10 steals.
Sep 3 - 4:42 PM

Nationals manager Matt Williams said that Stephen Strasburg (back) felt fine coming out of his bullpen session Thursday.

Strasburg left his most recent start on Sunday due to discomfort in his upper back and will have his turn skipped on Friday. However, the expectation is that he'll make his return for a crucial series against the first-place Mets early next week.
