Twins general manager Terry Ryan in effect named Kurt Suzuki his starting catcher on Friday.

"Not sure who's going to back him up," Ryan said of Suzuki. The GM indicated last month that he expected Suzuki to see the bulk of the starts behind the dish, and he's now provided more clarity. It's bad news for fantasy owners that wanted to see what Josmil Pinto could do with a full season of at-bats, as Pinto will now either be Suzuki's understudy or perhaps see more seasoning at Triple-A. Suzuki's appeal in fantasy leagues in minimal.

Jacob deGrom's next start has been pushed back to Sunday due to flu-like symptoms.

The right-hander has dealt with nausea and an upset stomach for the last few days, so the Mets will adjust their schedule a bit to give deGrom ample time for recovery. Robert Gsellman will now start Friday's series opener against the Nationals and Matt Harvey will go Saturday.

Ender Inciarte (thumb) is back in the Braves' starting lineup Thursday night against the Nationals.

Inciarte exited Tuesday's game with lingering soreness in his left thumb and he remained sidelined on Wednesday, but the rangy 26-year-old will start in center field and hit leadoff Thursday versus Nats right-hander Tanner Roark. Inciarte has a .304 batting average with 11 home runs and 22 stolen bases in 146 games this season.

X-rays turned up negative on Justin Turner's right thumb.

Turner got struck on the thumb by a pitch in the first inning of Thursday's game against the Phillies and he was lifted in the bottom of the second. The official diagnosis is a right thumb contusion. Consider the third baseman day-to-day.

Jose Ramirez is absent from the Indians' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon.

Ramirez recently missed a couple of games with a minor hamstring injury and the American League Central champs want him as healthy as possible for the postseason, so he figures to get a few more days of rest down the stretch. Erik Gonzalez is starting at second base and batting ninth Thursday versus Angels right-hander Parker Bridwell.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Orioles have "no intention" of shopping Manny Machado.

But it also seems highly doubtful that the O's will be able to lock up the 25-year-old third baseman to a contract extension with free agency looming after the 2018 season. Heyman hears club ownership was "within $8 million or $9 million" of making it happen a few years back. Machado has been on fire in the second half of 2017 and is up to 32 home runs and 92 RBI through 147 total games this year. He's also played his usual brand of excellent defense.

Corey Seager (ankle, elbow) is out of the Dodgers' lineup on Thursday afternoon.

Seager has been bothered by right elbow discomfort for over a month and he fouled a ball off his ankle on Wednesday night. He'll probably get multiple days off over this final stretch of the regular season so that he is as healthy as possible leading into the playoffs. Logan Forsythe is starting at shortstop and batting eighth Thursday versus the Phillies.

Adam Frazier went 2-for-4 with a triple, a home run and four RBI in a 6-4 walk-off win over the Brewers on Wednesday.

He smacked a two-run triple that tied the game in the third inning and was subsequently driven in by Starling Marte's single. In the bottom of the ninth he came to the plate against Brewers closer Corey Knebel with a runner aboard and drilled a game-ending bomb to right field. The big game boosted his line to .282/.353/.409 with six homers, 53 RBI and 50 runs in 113 games. He's chipped in nine stolen bases to boot. The super-utility player has filled in all over the field for injured or suspended players and has acquitted himself quite well at the plate. The 25-year-old hit .301 as a rookie last year and might merit a regular starting gig next year.
Sep 21 - 2:12 AM

Aaron Altherr went 3-for-4 with a clutch home run and game-winning base hit as his team beat the Dodgers 7-5 on Wednesday.

He drilled a game-tying, two-run homer off reliever Ross Stripling in the seventh inning, then drove in the winning runs with a single in the bottom of the eighth. The outfielder has missed a couple months' worth of games with hamstring issues this year but has been very good when able to play. He has a .281/.351/.539 triple slash with 19 home runs and 60 RBI in 97 games.
Sep 21 - 1:21 AM

Hunter Renfroe had a three-homer game in a losing cause against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

The Padres got all five of their homers tonight from the three bats they called up on Monday, with Rocky Gale and Christian Villaneuva also joining in the fun. Well, sort of fun, since they did end up losing 13-7. Renfroe has four homers in three games since his recall and 24 in 415 at-bats on the season. He might be leading the team in homers right now if not for the decision to send him down. He's second anyway.
Sep 21 - 1:13 AM

Gio Gonzalez allowed two runs in seven innings to earn a 7-3 win over the Braves on Wednesday.

He punched out eight batters against one walk in yet another gem outing for the veteran hurler. He yielded just three knocks in the contest, although two of them were solo homers by Freddie Freeman and Kurt Suzuki. Gonzalez made an adjustment in the middle of spring training that has propelled him to his best season since 2012, when he went 21-8 with a 2.89 ERA in his first season with the Nationals after coming over from the Athletics. This year Gonzalez is 15-7 with a 2.68 ERA and 1.13 WHIP after 30 starts. He has a 179/71 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 191 2/3 innings.
Sep 21 - 12:27 AM

Blake Snell held the Cubs to two base hits in seven shutout frames to earn an 8-1 victory on Wednesday.

He struck out five batters while allowing just two singles and three walks in the gem outing. Snell has been maddeningly inconsistent this season but today's effort shows why he was so highly rated as a prospect. He improves to 4-6 with a 4.01 ERA and 1.34 WHIP after 22 starts. The 24-year-old has 105 strikeouts and 55 walks in 121 1/3 innings.
