Chris Owings (shoulder) has yet to resume hitting.

Owings' bruised left shoulder is still not feeling 100 percent, and he won't be cleared to swing a bat until it gets there. Obviously it's looking like he won't be ready to return from the disabled list later this week when he's first eligible.
Jul 7 - 7:20 PM

Matt Shoemaker has been diagnosed with a "very mild" left oblique strain.

Shoemaker had to exit Monday's outing with the injury. The Angels are calling him day-to-day, with the right-hander saying he's "very optimistic" about being ready for the postseason. Still, he should miss at least one start, with one late-season tune-up before the playoffs probably representing the most likely scenario.

Mat Latos (elbow) played catch with no issues on Tuesday.

It's the first time he's thrown since he was scratched from Friday's start with a bone bruise in his right elbow. Reds manager Bryan Price indicated over the weekend that Latos is unlikely to return this season, and that's probably still the case given how little time is left. Still, it seems like the door hasn't been shut yet.

Joey Votto (quad) took batting practice Tuesday.

It's the first time he's done so since landing on the disabled list in early July with a distal left quad strain. Votto has upped his workouts recently and is with the Reds on the road, so it appears that a return before the end of the season is still a possibility. Even if he does come back, however, he'll likely get in only a handful of games.

Angel Pagan (back) is not in the Giants' lineup Tuesday.

Manager Bruce Bochy said after Monday's game that he expected Pagan to be ready to go Tuesday, but obviously that's not the case. Consider Pagan day-to-day. Juan Perez is getting another start in center field Tuesday.

Shin-Soo Choo is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery Wednesday on his left ankle.

Choo needs the procedure to repair cartilage damage and will be shut down from running for 6-8 weeks. He also had surgery in late August for bone spurs in his left elbow. It was a miserable 2014 for the 32-year-old outfielder, who batted just .242/.340/.374 with 13 home runs and four stolen bases in 123 games. He still has six years and $116 million remaining on his contract with the Rangers.
Sep 16 - 5:43 PM

Josh Hamilton (shoulder) is back in the Angels' lineup on Tuesday night against the Mariners.

Hamilton missed 10 games with a right shoulder injury. He will DH and bat sixth in his return.
Sep 16 - 5:40 PM

Nolan Arenado has been diagnosed with pneumonia.

The third baseman is home resting while the Rockies continue a three-game series against the Dodgers. It's not clear when Arenado might return to action.
Sep 16 - 5:39 PM

Albert Pujols (hamstring) is in the Angels' starting lineup on Tuesday versus the Mariners.

Pujols left Monday's game after feeling a cramp in his left hamstring following a three-run double in the bottom of the third inning. He got treatment on Monday night and again on Tuesday afternoon.
Sep 16 - 5:37 PM

Oswaldo Arcia (back) is not in the Twins' starting lineup Tuesday night versus the Tigers.

Arcia left Monday's game after tweaking a muscle in the upper-left part of his back on a swing-and-miss in the bottom of the sixth inning. He is day-to-day.
Sep 16 - 5:29 PM

Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) played three innings of first base Tuesday in a simulated game at the Nationals' spring training complex in Florida.

Zimmerman hit two doubles in five at-bats and ran the bases without issue. He is expected to play five innings at first base on Wednesday with an eye on returning to the Nationals' active roster in some capacity for the final week of the regular season.
Sep 16 - 5:17 PM

George Springer (quad) is done for the year.

Springer has not made enough progress from his quad strain and the Astros don't want him to push it too hard. The 24-year-old outfielder wound up posting an .804 OPS, 20 home runs, 51 RBI, and five stolen bases over his first 78 games at the major league level. He should be a fantasy monster in 2015.
