The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reports that the Twins and manager Paul Molitor are progressing toward a multi-year contract extension.

The Twins surprised everyone with 85 victories this season after losing 103 games in 2016. Still, a long-term deal for Molitor hadn't seemed like a given since the current front office didn't hire him. But, it appears the Hall of Famer will stick around for a while.

Shohei Ohtani is scheduled to undergo Tommy John surgery on his right elbow next week, after the conclusion of the 2018 regular season.

This has pretty much been the expected end result since Ohtani was diagnosed September 5 with new damage to the UCL in his elbow. The surgery will be performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles. Ohtani won't pitch again until 2020, but there is speculation that he will be able to serve as the Angels' regular designated hitter throughout the 2019 season. The 24-year-old Japanese star boasts a .925 OPS with 21 home runs and nine stolen bases over his first 99 major league games, proving more than capable on the offensive side of things. He made 10 appearances as a pitcher in his rookie campaign, registering a 3.31 ERA with 63 strikeouts across 51 2/3 innings.

Avisail Garcia will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right knee October 2.

The knee has been bothering Garcia all season, but he'll play out the string before going under the knife. The 27-year-old is stating in right field and batting cleanup Tuesday night against the Indians. He should be 100 percent by the beginning of spring training next February.

An MRI turned up negative on Aaron Hicks' left hamstring.

Hicks left Monday's game against the Rays after experiencing tightness in his left hamstring and he is not in the Yankees' starting lineup Tuesday, but it sounds like he could return to action after just a few days off. "We feel like we dodged a bullet," manager Aaron Boone told reporters. Brett Gardner is starting in center field and batting ninth Tuesday against the Rays and right-hander Jake Faria.

Gleyber Torres (foot) is not in the Yankees' starting lineup Tuesday against the Rays.

Torres got hit by a pitch in the right foot on Monday and is also dealing with some hip and groin tightness, but it's nothing too serious and he will be available off the bench. Adeiny Hechavarria is starting at shortstop and batting eighth versus Rays right-hander Jake Faria, with Neil Walker at second base and hitting fifth. Didi Gregorius remains sidelined due to a right wrist injury.

Didi Gregorius (wrist) will take grounders on the field before Tuesday's game at Tampa Bay.

But he won't do any throwing and it remains unclear whether he will be able to return to the Yankees' starting lineup before the end of the regular season, though Gregorius did tell reporters Tuesday that he feels "great." The shortstop suffered cartilage damage in his right wrist while sliding into home plate on Saturday.

Carlos Correa (back) took 30-40 swings on Tuesday without issue.

Correa told reporters afterward that he feels like he will be able to return to action on Wednesday, possibly getting a start out of the DH spot. The shortstop has been sidelined for the last week due to a back injury that has lingered since the middle of June.
Sep 25 - 4:24 PM

Aaron Sanchez underwent surgery Tuesday to repair his injured right index finger.

Sanchez initially injured the finger back in June while moving a suitcase and made just five starts with Toronto in the second half. He finished the 2018 season with a rough 4.89 ERA and 1.56 WHIP over 105 total innings. The 26-year-old right-hander will be arbitration-eligible this winter.

Lourdes Gurriel (hamstring) has been shut down for the remainder of the season.

Gurriel left Monday night's game against the Astros after suffering a Grade 2 strain of his left hamstring and he won't have enough time to get himself back to full health. The 24-year-old infielder showed well in his rookie season, slashing .281/.309/.446 with 11 home runs and 35 RBI over his first 65 major league games. He should have a starting job in 2019, likely at shortstop. Gurriel also played a lot of second base for the Blue Jays this year.

Kolten Wong (hamstrings, knee) is back in the Cardinals' starting lineup Tuesday versus the Brewers.

Wong has been in and out of the lineup lately due to soreness in both of his hamstrings and a lingering knee injury. He will start at second base and bat eighth Tuesday against Brewers left-hander Gio Gonzalez in what amounts to a must-win game for the Wild Card-hunting Redbirds.
Sep 25 - 4:06 PM

Mets assistant GM John Ricco said Tuesday that he "would fully anticipate" Mickey Callaway returning as the team's manager in 2019.

It's been a disappointing 2018 in Queens, especially after the Mets got off to such a hot start in March and April, but it's hard to put much of the blame on Callaway given all the injuries and underperforming players up and down the roster. And the team has actually rebounded somewhat in the second half. Callaway was hired last October and given a three-year deal with an option for a fourth year.
Sep 25 - 4:02 PM

Aaron Hicks (hamstring) is not in the Yankees' lineup Tuesday against the Rays.

Hicks left Monday's victory with a tight left hamstring, but he downplayed the issue after the game. He can be considered day-to-day for now. Brett Gardner will play center field and bat ninth on Tuesday.
