Latest Headlines

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Tuesday that he's "not optimistic" Starling Marte (concussion) will be activated from the disabled list when first eligible on Wednesday.

Marte went through a full workout Tuesday and appears to be feeling better, but he could go out on a rehab assignment before returning. The outfielder has been on the disabled list for the past week following post-concussion symptoms.

Ryan Raburn underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Friday.

Raburn will need 6-8 weeks of rehab to recover from an operation that repaired a lateral meniscus tear. His normally offseason routine might be delayed a bit, but he'll be fine for spring training. Raburn batted just .200/.250/.297 with four home runs over 74 games for the Tribe this season.

Nick Markakis (shoulder) remained out of the Orioles' lineup Friday.

Markakis has now missed two straight starts after being hit on the right shoulder by a pitch on Tuesday. He hasn't needed to undergo any tests but noted that it hurts to lift his arm above his head. He's hoping to return on Saturday. Steve Pearce is in right field again Friday, with Christian Walker covering first base.
Sep 19 - 3:35 PM

Jason Heyward (thumb) is not in the Braves' lineup Friday.

Heyward exited Wednesday's game with a left thumb injury, and although X-rays came back clean, the thumb is still swollen. He's listed as day-to-day. Ryan Doumit is in right field in Heyward's place Friday.

Charlie Morton (sports hernia) has been scratched from Sunday's start against the Brewers.

Morton managed to toss five shutout innings in his return to the rotation Tuesday, but his sports hernia was bothering him and he was still in a subsequent bullpen session. It seems unlikely that he'll return this season. Vance Worley will take the ball on Sunday.
Sep 19 - 3:16 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) is aiming to resume throwing on Saturday or Sunday.

The hope had been that he could start throwing Friday, but he remains sore after receiving a cortisone shot. Ryu did report improvement Friday and thinks he'll be back in time for the playoffs, but we'll just have to see how he recovers over the next couple weeks.
Sep 19 - 12:21 PM

Arismendy Alcantara is back in the Cubs' lineup Friday.

Alcantara missed the last two games after spraining his right wrist on Monday. The rookie has hit .212/.261/.363 with nine homers and eight steals over 61 games since being promoted by the Cubs in July.
Sep 19 - 10:56 AM

Jimmy Rollins (hamstring) could return to the lineup on Friday.

It just so happens that the Phillies are in Oakland, where Rollins grew up. The shortstop hasn't played since September 8 due to a left hamstring strain but tested things out on Thursday. He's hit .243/.323/.394 with 17 homers and 28 stolen bases for Philly this season.

LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that Glen Perkins is dealing with "some nerve irritation and maybe a slight muscle strain" in his left elbow.

Neal adds that the ailment "doesn't appear to be serious." However, with just a week and a half left in the season, the closer will undoubtedly be shut down. The good news is that it doesn't sound like it will be a long-term issue for Perkins. Jared Burton will continue to fill in as the Twins' closer.

Felix Hernandez fired seven shutout innings, striking out 11, in a no-decision against the Angels on Thursday.

He scattered three hits and walked two. The Mariners ultimately won 3-1, but we're not going to call this a "tough-luck" no-decision, because King Felix didn't exactly face a murderer's row. The Angels trotted out the following Little League World Series lineup after clinching the division last night: 1. Tony Campana CF, 2. Gordon Beckham SS, 3. Brennan Boesch RF, 4. C.J. Cron DH, 5. Efren Navarro 1B, 6. Grant Green 2B, 7. Hank Conger C, 8. Luis Jimenez 3B, 9. Shawn O'Malley LF. Hernandez is 1-0 with a 0.96 ERA across his last four outings. The soon-to-be Cy Young gets the Blue Jays on Tuesday.
Sep 19 - 1:25 AM

Jose Ramirez finished 3-for-6 with a double and two runs scored in Thursday's 13-inning win against the Astros.

Ramirez scored both of the Indians' runs, touching home for the tying run in the ninth on a Carlos Santana single, and scoring the go-ahead run in the 13th on a Mike Aviles sacrifice fly. Ramirez had been held to just three hits in his previous 23 at-bats entering the contest, and still sports a mediocre .254/.299/.328 slash line on the season.
Sep 19 - 12:44 AM

Yasiel Puig went 3-for-5 with an RBI single and a run scored in Thursday's defeat of the Cubs.

Puig has had a good road trip out West, batting .400 (12-for-30) over seven games thus far. He may have broken out of his slump just in time for the Dodgers, who are defending a narrow lead in the NL West. Puig currently rests on a .297/.383/.477 slash line with 14 home runs and 63 RBI.
