Michael Conforto (shoulder) "fully expects" to play in a Grapefruit League game next week.

We wouldn't have expected that coming into the spring, but Conforto is progressing ahead of schedule from last September's surgery to repair a torn posterior capsule in his left shoulder. The Mets have been aiming for a May 1 return, but it's looking more and more possible that he could beat that timetable.

Brandon Belt is heading back to San Francisco to undergo and MRI on his knee, and could have surgery soon according to Giants manager Bruce Bochy.

Belt has missed the last four games -- and isn't playing Wednesday against the Padres -- because of soreness in his right knee. An initial MRI showed no damage, but it's obviously possible that the first baseman has aggravated something while trying to get back onto the field. It would be an upset if Belt played another game in 2018, even if the MRI comes back negative.

Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 with a homer and a double in a loss to the Rays on Wednesday.

That homer ties Stan Musial and Willie Stargell for 30th on the all-time homer list with 475 over his career, and it's the 13th of his 2018 season. He also doubled, the 21st of the campaign. He's not the same fantasy stalwart he was just a few short seasons ago, but he's still a competent player as seen in his .273/.333/.425 line in 111 games.

Tommy Pham went 3-for-5 with two homers in a 9-3 rout of the Rangers on Wednesday.

Pham hit his fourth homer of the season when he took Yohander Mendez deep in the third inning, and he added his fifth of the season and second off the day off of Bartolo Colon in the eighth. He's been limited by injuries, but he's been excellent when on the field for Tampa bay, slashing .327/.419/.570 over 28 games. It won't help them get to the playoffs this year, but he's a big reason why they've been one of the best teams since the trade deadline in the American League.

Paul Goldschmidt is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs.

Goldschmidt gets a day off, and Christian Walker gets the start at first base. It's been another outstanding season for Goldschmidt, and the overall numbers (.298/.399/.551) are even more impressive when you consider he got off to an atrocious start to the season.

Jose Abreu has been released from a Cleveland hospital after suffering an infection in his right thigh.

Abreu was hospitalized on Monday because of an infection that stemmed from an ingrown hair. The first baseman will not be able to play for the rest of the series against the Indians, but there's no word yet whether he will or will not be able to play in their series with the Cubs which starts on Friday.

Lorenzo Cain (intercostal) is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Reds.

Cain was forced to leave Tuesday's game against the Reds after the muscle stiffened up on him. Christian Yelich will start in center field and Domingo Santana will patrol right field. Cain should be considered day-to-day, with a chance to return to the lineup on Friday against the Pirates.
Sep 19 - 4:07 PM

Trevor Bauer (leg) will be activated from the disabled list Friday and start the Indians' series opener against the Red Sox.

Indians manager Terry Francona made the announcement Wednesday, adding that Bauer will probably only go a couple innings in his first start since fracturing his right fibula back on August 11. Shane Bieber will piggyback with him in that game. Bauer could get up to four or five innings next week and be might be something close to full strength leading into the American League Division Series. This is obviously a great development for the Tribe.

Mookie Betts (side) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup Wednesday night against the Yankees.

Betts will DH and bat leadoff versus right-hander Luis Severino as the Red Sox look to clinch the American League East title. The 25-year-old MVP candidate sat out of Tuesday's loss to New York due to mild discomfort in his left side. J.D. Martinez is in right field Wednesday.

Michael Kopech underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery on Tuesday.

The surgery was performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles. Kopech will miss the entire 2019 season, but he should be 100 percent leading into the start of spring training in 2020. The 22-year-old top pitching prospect registered a 5.02 ERA and 15/2 K/BB ratio over his first 14 1/3 major league innings (four starts) in 2018.
Sep 19 - 3:38 PM

Freddie Freeman went 3-for-3 with a home run, three RBI, and a walk in the Braves' 7-3 win over the Cardinals on Wednesday.

Freeman opened the afternoon's scoring with a two-run shot off Cardinals starter Jack Flaherty in the bottom of the fourth inning and then added an RBI single in the bottom of the fifth. The star first baseman now has 13 three-hit performances this season, and he's notched at least two hits in seven of his last 11 games. His batting line for the year is up to .311/.390/.509.
Sep 19 - 3:25 PM

Salvador Perez (thumb) is back in the Royals' lineup on Wednesday against the Pirates.

Perez was held out of the starting lineup on Tuesday due to soreness in his left thumb, but he came off the bench and went 1-for-2. He'll start at catcher and bat cleanup Wednesday versus right-hander Chris Archer.
