Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Indians are "very willing to move" Justin Masterson.

Passan says the Indians want "young, controllable starting pitching" in return, which is going to be a tough find. Masterson can become a free agent after the season and owns a rough 5.51 ERA and 1.63 ERA in 98 innings this year. The big right-hander is also on the disabled list currently with a right knee injury, though he's due back Friday night.

The Yankees announced Friday that they'll skip Masahiro Tanaka's final start of the season on Saturday.

With nothing left to play for, there's no reason to push the right-hander any further than necessary. He finishes a terrific 2016 campaign with a 14-4 record, 3.07 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 165/36 K/BB ratio across 199 2/3 innings. Luis Severino will start in his place on Saturday against the Orioles.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia announced Friday that Albert Pujols (foot) has been shut down for the remainder of the 2016 season.

The 36-year-old slugger has battled plantar fasciitis throughout the season, and at this point it seems like a wise call to simply let him rest and start the recovery process. Pujols also said that he plans to return as a first baseman next season, as he doesn't enjoy serving as the DH full-time. He finishes the season hitting .268/.323/.457 with 31 homers and 119 RBI in 152 games. It's his highest RBI total since his MVP campaign in 2009 with the Cardinals.

Corey Kluber (quad) played catch from up to 150 feet on Friday.

Kluber also worked in some crow-hops in order to test out his quad strain and felt fine. There's no timetable yet for when he'll throw off a mound, but Friday's session was a positive development. Kluber is expected to be ready for the ALDS next week.

Cardinals activated OF Matt Holliday from the 15-day disabled list.

He's not going to play much in the final weekend, though, as the Cards just want to get him a token appearance so that the impending free agent can be recognized by the fans. General manager John Mozeliak said Friday that the likelihood of the team picking up Holliday's option for 2017 is "very low."
Sep 30 - 5:24 PM

Bryan Price will return as the Reds' manager in 2017.

There had been some talk of Price being on the hot seat, but the entire coaching staff has been offered contracts to return next season. The club also will have an option on Price for 2018. The Reds are 67-92 in 2016 and 207-276 in three seasons under Price.
Sep 30 - 4:27 PM

Rangers activated OF Shin-Soo Choo from the 15-day disabled list.

It had looked like Choo was done for the regular season when he fractured his left forearm in mid-August, but he's managed to make it back for the final series. He's in right field and batting seventh Friday, as Carlos Gomez has retained the leadoff spot for now. Nomar Mazara is on the bench.
Sep 30 - 4:04 PM

Joey Votto (chin) is back in the Reds' lineup Friday.

Votto had to leave Thursday's game after an errant throw from the outfield struck him in the chin as he slid into second base, but he's fine. He's at first base and batting third versus Jake Buchanan and the Cubs.
Sep 30 - 2:45 PM

Daniel Murphy (glute) remained out of the Nationals' lineup Friday.

Murphy is coming up on two weeks since he's started a game, as he's still not over his strained left glute. We probably shouldn't expect more than a token appearance this weekend as the Nats prepare for the postseason. Stephen Drew is at second base Friday.
Sep 30 - 2:31 PM

Bryce Harper (thumb) is back in the Nationals' lineup Friday.

It will be his first game since he injured his left thumb on an awkward slide Sunday. Harper is in his customary No. 3 spot in the lineup and in right field against Andrew Cashner and the Marlins.
Sep 30 - 2:28 PM

Jon Heyman of TodaysKnuckleball.com reports that the Cardinals do not plan to exercise Matt Holliday's $17 million option for 2017.

He also adds that they won't extend him a similarly priced qualifying offer, either. Holliday, who will turn 37 over the winter, has had a career-worst season at the plate, batting .242/.318/.450 with 19 homers over 424 plate appearances. He's missed the last seven weeks with a fractured thumb.
Sep 30 - 9:27 AM

Johnny Cueto came through clutch in Thursday's 7-2 win over the Rockies, striking out 11 while allowing two runs over seven innings.

Cueto wasn't unhittable on Thursday -- indeed, he surrendered nine of them -- but he managed to evade trouble on the scoreboard, for the most part. He got his hiccups out of the way early, surrendering an RBI double to Nolan Arenado and an RBI triple to David Dahl in the first inning. From that point onward, he posted goose eggs. In his first year with the Giants, Cueto has pitched to a 2.79 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 198/45 K/BB ratio over 219 2/3 innings. He allowed more than two runs in just three of his final 10 starts.
