Latest Headlines

Alfredo Simon has been added to the National League All-Star team.

He's replacing teammate Johnny Cueto, who started on Sunday. We'd rather see someone like Stephen Strasburg make it, but Simon has had a great first half with a 2.70 ERA and 1.05 WHIP.

Matt Holliday (quad) began jogging on the outfield grass Friday.

He did so under the watchful eye of the Cardinals' team doctor. Holliday has been hitting for a while, but he still has a long way to go in his running program progression. He's hoping to rejoin the big club in a couple weeks, but the Cards will be extra careful after they brought him back too quickly the first time.

Daniel Murphy (quad) is not in the Mets' lineup Friday.

Murphy left Wednesday's game with a strained left quad. The Mets are saying it's a minor ailment and are considering him day-to-day, but it wouldn't be a surprise if he sat out all weekend.

Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports that the Mets plan to stick with their innings plan for Matt Harvey that will allow him to pitch through the playoffs.

Harvey's agent, Scott Boras, made waves when he told CBS Sports' Jon Heyman that he thinks the club should shut the righty down when he reaches 180 innings (he's at 166 1/3 frames now). But, while they plan to skip Harvey once more and will also use a six-man rotation this month, they have no plans to shut the right-hander down altogether.

Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

Ramirez hasn't played in over a week due to fatigue in his right shoulder. He remains day-to-day but there's been no indication of when he'll be back in there. Allen Craig is getting a start at first base Friday.
Sep 4 - 3:03 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that contract extension talks between the Astros and Dallas Keuchel's agent "will or have been" tabled until the offseason.

Keuchel revealed last month that the discussions were taking place, but it's not a surprise that the two sides have decided to hold off for now while they fight for a playoff spot. The left-hander will be arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter and is arguably the front-runner for the American League Cy Young award, having put up a 2.24 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP and a 173/42 K/BB ratio over 192 2/3 innings.
Sep 4 - 2:03 PM

Astros activated OF George Springer from the 15-day disabled list.

Springer got through five rehab games with Double-A Corpus Christi with no issues and is ready to go. He's been sidelined since early July with a fractured right wrist.
Sep 4 - 1:05 PM

Corey Kluber has been scratched from Friday's scheduled start due to a right hamstring strain.

It's not clear when Kluber was injured, but it could cost him an additional start after Friday. Josh Tomlin will move up a day to start Friday. The Indians are clinging to faint Wild Card hopes, so it's certainly rotten news for them.
Sep 4 - 12:07 PM

Yankees placed 1B Mark Teixeira on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 27, with a right shin bone bruise.

The Yankees threw Teixeira's fantasy owners a bone here, as DL moves are rarely made in September. The transaction occurred because they wanted to bring back reliever Nick Rumbelow before his 10-day waiting period was up. Teixeira is getting around on crutches at the moment and is expected to miss at least a couple weeks.
Sep 4 - 11:22 AM

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 on a check swing while taking batting practice Wednesday.
Sep 4 - 10:59 AM

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.
Sep 4 - 10:53 AM

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.
