Starling Marte (elbow) is back in the Pirates' starting lineup Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Sep 16 - 3:35 PM

Bryce Harper (flu) is in Tuesday's lineup against the Braves.

Harper left Monday's game with lightheadedness as a result of the flu, but it's not a big deal. He'll bat sixth Tuesday against Aaron Harang as the Nationals attempt to punch their ticket to the postseason.

Anthony Rizzo is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Reds.

Rizzo hit a walk-off homer Monday in his first game since injuring his back late last month. The Cubs are presumably giving him a breather.
Sep 16 - 3:17 PM

Evan Gattis (strep throat) remains out of the Braves' lineup Tuesday.

Gattis is dealing with strep throat and will now miss his eighth straight start. It's unclear when he'll be ready to return.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Blue Jays plan to make a qualifying offer to impending free agent Melky Cabrera.

A qualifying offer is expected to be somewhere in the range of $15-16 million. According to Heyman, the Blue Jays are hopeful that it will lead to another multi-year agreement. Cabrera batted .301/.351/.458 with 16 home runs and 73 RBI prior to undergoing season-ending surgery earlier this month to repair a broken right pinkie finger.

Yankees placed INF/OF Martin Prado on the 60-day disabled list with appendicitis.

Prado underwent an emergency appendectomy and is now officially out for the rest of the season. The 30-year-old hit .316/.336/.541 with seven home runs and 16 RBI over 37 games after coming over from the Diamondbacks in July and should remain useful in mixed fantasy leagues in 2015.

Michael Morse (oblique) should be ready to return by Friday.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that Morse was "tentative" during batting practice Monday, so it will likely take him another couple of days to swing with full intensity. The 32-year-old has been sidelined since late August with a strained left oblique.
Sep 16 - 8:54 AM

Matt Shoemaker will undergo an MRI after leaving Monday's start with a "little" discomfort on the left side of his rib cage.

Shoemaker allowed one run over 7 2/3 innings against the Mariners before exiting. He said after the game that he's not overly concerned, but naturally the Angels aren't going to take any chances.

Andrew Cashner spun a two-hit shutout on Monday in a 1-0 win versus the Phillies.

Interestingly, his complete-game shutout came on the same night Anthony Rizzo, for whom he was once traded, hit a walk-off homer. Cashner struck out seven and walked one, needing only 92 pitches, otherwise known as a "Maddux," to finish off the Phillies. The 27-year-old right-hander remains hot, having gone 1-1 with a 2.25 ERA in his last five starts coming into tonight. Of his four wins, Cashner has needed to throw complete games to secure two of them. Now 4-7 with a 2.20 ERA, Cashner hosts the Giants on Saturday.

Anthony Rizzo hit a walkoff homer off Pedro Villarreal in the bottom of the ninth as the Cubs beat the Reds 1-0 on Monday.

At least the Cubs are still trying to win; the Reds could care less. Rizzo, playing for the first time since Aug. 26, was the only player on either team to have a multihit game tonight, going 2-for-4. The homer was his 31st of the year, which tops his 2013 total by eight.
Sep 15 - 11:32 PM

Albert Pujols left Monday's game against the Mariners with a left hamstring cramp.

Pujols cleared the bases with a double in the third inning but grabbed his hamstring on the way into second base. The good news is that the Angels are calling it a cramp, so it sounds like a day-to-day situation.
