Latest Headlines

Alex Rios left Sunday's game versus the Astros after aggravating his right ankle injury.

Rios was making his first start since Wednesday, but he lasted not even four innings before departing. He'll be reevaluated on Monday. The dynamic outfielder cleared revocable waivers last week. This lingering ankle injury obviously won't help his trade value.

Andrew McCutchen is not in Thursday's lineup against the Brewers.

McCutchen pulled up short running to first base Wednesday, though there's nothing to indicate that it's anything serious. The Pirates have a huge series against the Cardinals this weekend, so no reason to take any chances. Starling Marte will play center field Thursday while Josh Harrison will play left.
Sep 3 - 4:05 PM

Michael Taylor (knee) is out again Thursday.

Taylor was a late scratch from Wednesday's series finale against the Cardinals with ongoing discomfort in his right knee. It's not believed to be a serious injury -- the Nationals were calling it a bruise last week -- but Taylor clearly needs at least one more day of rest. Bryce Harper is in center field and Clint Robinson is in left field on Thursday night against the Braves.
Sep 3 - 4:02 PM

Bryce Harper (glute) is in the Nationals' starting lineup on Thursday night against the Braves.

Harper made an early exit from Wednesday's win over the Cardinals with tightness in his left glute. But he looked fine for the four innings he played on Wednesday night and is back in action Thursday for the start of a four-game weekend set against the Braves. It's a very important series for the Nats, who need to make up ground in the NL East quickly.
Sep 3 - 3:59 PM

Mike Moustakas (hamstring) is out again Thursday.

Moustakas has now missed three straight games with a hamstring injury. It's considered minor, but the Royals will take advantage of their massive AL Central lead and give their third baseman an extra day of rest. Cheslor Cuthbert is at third base and batting eighth Thursday evening against Tigers lefty Matt Boyd.
Sep 3 - 3:51 PM

Matt Harvey (dehydration) is expected to be fine.

Harvey was not on the Mets' team flight to Miami after suffering from dehydration at the end of his outing Wednesday against the Phillies, but he should be good to take his next turn in the rotation in Washington, D.C. Harvey has a stellar 2.60 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 158/34 K/BB ratio in 166 1/3 innings this season for New York.
Sep 3 - 1:21 PM

Tim Lincecum underwent season-ending surgery early Thursday morning on his hip.

His recovery timetable is unclear at this point. Lincecum will enter free agency after making zero starts in the second half of the 2015 season, and with a 4.68 ERA over his last four years with San Francisco. The two-time Cy Young Award winner will almost certainly have to settle for a one-year, incentive-laden contract on the open market this winter.

Cardinals GM John Mozeliak acknowledged Wednesday that any contract talks with Jason Heyward will likely have to wait until after the World Series.

"In terms of when we can actually engage, it's really going to be this offseason," the Cardinals general manager told KMOX. It's a no-brainer for Heyward to test the free agent market at this point and he's going to cash in big as a 26-year-old with a range of high-level skills. Heyward is batting .292/.349/.441 in 128 games this season for first-place St. Louis and has continued to play Gold Glove defense in the outfield. He'll have many aggressive, deep-pocketed suitors.
Sep 3 - 12:47 PM

Phil Hughes (back) threw a successful bullpen session on Thursday morning at Target Field.

Hughes will do a similar workout on Sunday and then join the Twins in Kansas City for a simulated game. He probably won't be able to make a rehab start because minor league seasons are coming to a close. Hughes has been out since August 13 with a back injury.
Sep 3 - 11:59 AM

Erik Johnson will start Sunday in Kansas City.

Johnson has registered a stellar 2.37 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 136/41 K/BB ratio across 132 2/3 innings this season at Triple-A Charlotte and is worth another look in deeper mixed fantasy leagues. The right-hander struggled in five starts with the White Sox in 2014.
Sep 3 - 11:45 AM

Glen Perkins (back) won't be with the Twins for the start of their upcoming road trip.

Perkins is still dealing with a back spasm and could barely walk in the clubhouse ahead of Thursday afternoon's series finale at home against the White Sox. Kevin Jepsen is a must-own in all standard fantasy leagues. Perkins, 32, has also missed time this year with a neck injury.
Sep 3 - 11:27 AM

Jose Peraza will be out for at least the next 3-5 games due to a sore hamstring.

It's part of the reason the Dodgers are calling up top infield prospect Corey Seager on Thursday. Pereza has impressed so far with Los Angeles, slashing .267/.353/.467 in 17 plate appearances. He was acquired from the Braves in July as part of the Hector Olivera trade.
