Angels signed LHP Dustin Richardson to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Richardson hasn't appeared in a major league game since 2010, when he posted a 4.15 ERA in 26 relief appearances for the Red Sox. He spent part of the 2013 season with the independent-league Sugar Land Skeeters.

Justin Turner (thumb) made an early exit from Thursday's game against the Phillies.

Turner took a pitch off his chest and right thumb in the top of the first inning and he was replaced at third base by Logan Forsythe in the bottom of the second. Turner passed an initial strength test following the HBP, so his second-inning departure was probably just precautionary. Look for an update after the game.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said after Wednesday's game that Zach Britton will receive a PRP injection in his knee on Thursday.

The team will then reevaluate Britton 3-to-5 days later. Showalter said earlier in the day on Wednesday that there was a strong chance that the closer will be shut down for the rest of the 2017 campaign. With Baltimore all but eliminated from the playoffs, there's really no reason for Britton to pitch again. Brad Brach figures to handle any save opportunities that might arise the rest of the way.
Sep 20 - 11:25 PM

Mike Moustakas went 3-for-4 and set a new Royals record by hitting his 37th home run of the season in a 15-5 win over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

His sixth-inning blast off Carlos Ramirez broke the team record set by Steve Balboni way back in 1985. The most homers Moustakas had ever hit in a season before this year was 22 in 2015. The third baseman has a .275 batting average with 83 RBI and 73 runs in 564 plate appearances.
