Red Sox optioned INF/OF Mookie Betts to Triple-A Pawtucket.

The move clears a spot for Kelly Johnson's activation from the disabled list. Betts only had two starts in five games during his most recent stint with the big club and is better off playing every day in the minors rather than sitting on the bench. We'll likely see him again very soon.

Kenta Maeda has been moved up to start Tuesday against the Padres.

He'll swap spots with rookie Jose De Leon, who will be pushed back to Wednesday. Maeda allowed two runs (one earned) over five innings in his most recent start last Wednesday against the Giants and owns a 3.20 ERA over 30 starts in his first year in MLB.

Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins and Martin Prado have agreed to a three-year, $40 million extension.

Prado was previously due to hit a weak free agent market this winter, but he's now locked up through his age-35 season in 2019. Acquired from the Yankees in December of 2014, Prado has hit .297/.350/.405 over two seasons with Miami and has emerged as a clubhouse leader. The Marlins made it a top priority to keep him in the fold and they were successful.

Jered Weaver (back) plans to start as scheduled Sunday against the Astros.

Weaver was forced to leave Monday's start against the Athletics after five scoreless innings due to lower back tightness, but it won't stop him from making perhaps his final start with the Angels. The veteran right-hander thinks he can pitch next season, but he has yet to make a final decision about his future. Weaver has an ugly 5.06 ERA in 31 starts this season.

Adam Duvall went 4-for-6 with a pair of homers and five RBI in Monday's blowout victory over the Cardinals.

He homered in the first inning, had an RBI single in the fourth, another homer in the fifth and another single in the seventh. The two-homer night was Duvall's third of the season and pushed his home run total for the year to 33, which trails only Nolan Arenado, Kris Bryant and Chris Carter in the National League. He also reached the 100-RBI mark Monday.

Jean Segura clubbed a pair of home runs and drove in three in Monday's blowout win over the Nationals.

Segura got the scoring starting for the D'Backs with a solo shot in the fourth and then added a two-run shot in the eighth. He also had a single on the night. A lot of things have gone wrong for Arizona this season, but Segura certainly hasn't been one of them. He's up to a career-high 19 home runs and is just four hits shy of a 200-hit campaign.

Dee Gordon went 4-for-5 with his first home run of the season while also adding a stolen base in Monday's win over the Mets.

Gordon provided one of the most unforgettable moments of the season in this one. After an emotional pregame honoring their late teammate Jose Fernandez, Gordon stood in the right side of the batter's box for the first pitch of the bottom of the first inning as an ode to Fernandez. He then moved over to his regular left side and slugged a pitch out to right for his first dinger of the season. Gordon was bawling as he rounded the bases and was then greeted by his teammates in an incredibly moving moment. Justin Bour also had a big night for the fish, going 3-for-3 while falling a homer shy of the cycle.

Wilson Ramos will undergo an MRI on his right knee on Tuesday morning.

Ramos injured his knee after leaping to catch a throw at home plate in the sixth inning of Monday's game. It didn't look good, but we'll have to wait until Tuesday for the official diagnosis. Jose Lobaton would likely handle the bulk of the catching duties during the postseason if Ramos needs to miss significant time.

Nationals manager Dusty Baker said that X-rays on Bryce Harper's left thumb came back negative.

Good news for Harper, who injured his thumb on an awkward slide into third base on Sunday. The swelling has gone down and the thought is that he could be ready to play again later this week. He should be good to go for the postseason.
Sep 26 - 11:15 PM

Javier Baez hit a grand slam and drove in a career-high six runs in Monday's victory over the Pirates.

Baez took Chad Kuhl deep in the fourth inning for his second grand slam of the season. He wasn't done there, adding a two-RBI single in the sixth to extend the Cubs' lead to 11-0 at the time. Kris Bryant also went deep for the Cubbies, who claimed their 100th victory of the season. It's the first time since 1935 that the Cubs have reached 100 wins.
Sep 26 - 10:58 PM

Devon Travis left Monday's game against the Yankees with a left shoulder injury.

Travis went 0-for-3 with a strikeout before leaving after five innings and could be seen wincing on a swing. The specifics of the issue aren't yet known, but it's worth noting that he had a pair of surgeries on his left shoulder last year. We should know more soon.
Sep 26 - 10:49 PM

Corey Kluber exited Monday's start against the Tigers with right groin tightness.

Kluber allowed two runs on five hits and one walk over four innings before leaving the ballgame. The Indians' rotation has already taken multiple hits down the stretch, so this isn't an encouraging development. We should know more about the severity soon.
