FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Angels are targeting Padres starter Ian Kennedy.

Anaheim has also been in talks with the still-under-construction San Diego front office about closer Huston Street. Kennedy, 29, has registered an exceptional 3.47 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, and 133/34 K/BB ratio across 124 1/3 innings (20 starts) this season for the Padres. According to the pitching metric xFIP, he ranks better this year than guys like Max Scherzer, Adam Wainwright, and Jeff Samardzija. Kennedy is arbitration-eligible through 2015, so the Friars will probably want a fairly substantial return package.

Dustin Ackley had big night at the plate Friday against the Astros, going 2-for-4 with two solo home runs, a walk, and three runs scored.

It was the second multi-homer game of his career. Ackley came into Friday's action 3-for-35 (.086) this month. The Mariners and fantasy owners will have to hope that the big game will get him going again.

Michael Cuddyer clobbered a grand slam and drove home a career-high seven runs as the Rockies routed the Diamondbacks 15-3 in Colorado on Friday.

Cuddyer did all of his damage in the second half of the ballgame, smashing his grand slam in the sixth inning, then delivering a bases-clearing double with the bases loaded his next time up in the eighth. There's no doubting his production when he's been on the field, but unfortunately for fantasy owners that hasn't been often enough this season.

David Ortiz blasted a pair of home runs on Friday, including a go-ahead two-run shot in the 10th inning, powering the Red Sox to a 5-3 victory over the Orioles.

Ortiz got the Red Sox on the board with a solo blast in the fourth inning, which was immediately followed by another off the bat of Yoenis Cespedes. He then delivered a massive two-run shot off Darren O'Day in the 10th inning to put the Red Sox ahead for good, finishing the night 3-for-5 with three RBI. He now has 34 homers and 102 RBI on the season, making it a club record eighth time that he has reached the 30-homer/100-RBI plateaus, surpassing Ted Williams.

Russell Martin hit a dramatic go-ahead three-run homer in a 4-2 win over the Brewers on Friday night.

After Yovani Gallardo pitched seven scoreless innings, Martin put the Pirates in front in the eighth inning against Jonathan Broxton and sent PNC Park into pandemonium. The veteran backstop has had a fantastic under-the-radar year, batting .296/.408/441 with 11 home runs and 66 RBI while throwing out 39 percent of attempted basestealers. He's a big reason why the Pirates are currently on track for their second straight postseason appearance. Look for him to land a nice contract in free agency this winter.

Edwin Encarnacion smacked a two-run homer in Friday's loss to the Yankees.

Encarnacion underwent a precautionary MRI on his back early Friday, but he felt well enough to play. The 31-year-old now has 33 homers on the year, which ties him for fifth in the American League.

Jacoby Ellsbury was removed from Friday's game against the Blue Jays with a strained right hamstring and is set to undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury.

Before departing, he was in the midst of a monster evening, going 2-for-3 with a double, homer and three RBI. The dynamic outfielder is hitting .271/.328/.419 with 16 homers, 70 RBI and 39 stolen bases on the year. More should be known about his status on Saturday.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia indicated Friday that the team could utilize a three-man rotation in the American League Division Series.

Assuming Matt Shoemaker makes it back healthy, it would presumably be he, C.J. Wilson and Jered Weaver, with Weaver getting the call to work on short rest. Given the critical importance of those games and the uncertainty surrounding the rest of the rotation, it certainly seems like a viable strategy on the Halos end.

Brandon Belt (concussion) is in the Giants starting lineup on Friday.

It marks the first time that he has been in there since early August when he suffered a recurrence of his concussion-like symptoms. It has been a season ravaged by injuries for the 26-year-old slugger, who is hitting just .237/.299/.446 with 11 homers and 24 RBI in his 52 contests.
Sep 19 - 7:16 PM

Clayton Kershaw had one of his worst starts of the season but still notched win No. 20 Friday, allowing three runs over five frames in a 14-5 clobbering of the Cubs.

Kershaw looked off from the jump after having to wait a while to take the mound following the Dodgers’ six-run top of the first inning. He gave three runs back in the bottom of the frame and had to pitch out of jams in each of the next four innings. Kershaw gave up seven hits and walked three on the day, though he did record nine punchouts. The lefty still sports a microscopic 1.80 ERA after the less-than-sharp effort. He’ll get the Giants next week in his final start of the regular season.
Sep 19 - 6:07 PM

A.J. Ellis had a pair of two-run homers and scored three runs in Friday's victory over the Cubs.

Edwin Jackson getting chased early turned out to be a good thing for Ellis, as he took Jackson's replacement, Eric Jokisch, out of the park once in the first and again in the third. He also drew a walk. It was a big day in what has been an ugly offensive season for Ellis, as he's still hitting just .193/.328/.261.
Sep 19 - 6:05 PM

Anibal Sanchez (pectoral) will throw a simulated game on Sunday.

Sanchez was cleared for the sim game after getting through another bullpen session Thursday with no issues. The right-hander is not expected back before the end of the regular season, but he could be a valuable relief arm to have in the playoffs.
