Matt Albers is expected to leave the Nationals in the middle of the week for the birth of his son.

Albers could be away for a couple of days, but the Nationals will likely try to get him in a game this weekend in order to keep him sharp for the postseason. The 34-year-old owns a dominant 1.67 ERA and 0.87 WHIP over 61 appearances this season.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi hopes to use Dellin Betances in three or four games this week.

The aim is to have him sharp leading into the playoffs. Betances has had an up-and-down September, allowing six runs on five hits and six walks over 7 2/3 innings. On the bright side, he's struck out 14 batters. Still, the Yankees want to have him in a good grove going into the postseason.

Brandon Moss is out of Monday's lineup against the Yankees.

Moss will sit again as the Royals use the DH spot for one of their other regulars. After Mike Moustakas started there Sunday, Lorenzo Cain will DH on Monday. Paulo Orlando will start in center field.

Carlos Gonzalez missed Sunday's game due to left shoulder soreness.

CarGo injured his shoulder while attempting to dive for a ball on Saturday. He's receiving treatment, but it's not a sure thing he'll be able to return Monday against the Marlins.

Nolan Arenado left Sunday's game against the Padres with a bruise on the palm of his right hand.

Arenado injured his hand on a swing in the third inning and eventually left the game in the sixth. "I took a funky swing. I don’t know if I spun my hand, but it got real swollen," said Arenado. "It didn’t feel bad, but it didn’t feel great. They decided to take me out. I tried to stay in." The Rockies are hopeful that Arenado will be able to play Monday against the Marlins.

Starlin Castro is not in Monday's lineup versus the Royals.

The Yankees and Royals are playing a makeup game Monday afternoon at Yankee Stadium. Ronald Torreyes will make the start at second base and bat ninth against Jake Junis.

Ian Kinsler is two plate appearances shy of reaching 600 this season, which guarantees his $11 million vesting option for 2018.

Kinsler should reach the mark on Tuesday against the Royals, assuming he's in the starting lineup. If the veteran second baseman failed to reach 600 plate appearances, the Tigers could have bought out the option for $5 million. While his salary next year will become guaranteed, the Tigers will almost certainly explore trade options over the winter. That could be easier said than done, as the 35-year-old has struggled with a .236/.313/.416 batting line this season. Kinsler has the ability to block trades to 10 teams.

Jay Bruce (heel) went 1-for-4 with a single and two strikeouts in his return to action Sunday against the Mariners.

Bruce was removed from Saturday's game for precautionary reasons due to discomfort in his left heel, but fortunately it doesn't appear to be serious. The 30-year-old is batting .248/.324/.465 with five homers and 20 RBI over 37 games with the Indians.

Freddie Freeman (illness) went 1-for-4 with a single and a strikeout in his return to action Sunday against the Phillies.

Freeman missed Saturday's game with a stomach virus, but he should be good to go the rest of the way. The slugger is batting .309 with five homers and a .967 OPS in September.

Matt Kemp (hamstring) flied out as a pinch-hitter Sunday against the Braves.

Kemp has been limited to pinch-hitting duties since tweaking his left hamstring back on September 15. Fantasy owners shouldn't count on any meaningful contribution over the final week of the season.

Brandon Phillips went 2-for-4 with a double and a home run as the Angels topped the Astros 7-5 on Sunday evening.

Phillips tagged Astros' starter Lance McCullers for a solo shot in the fourth inning the trimmed the Halos' deficit to two at 4-2. He drove in another run by drawing a walk with the bases loaded the next inning. The veteran second baseman is enjoying another solid season, slashing .288/.323/.417 with 12 homers and 58 RBI.

Justin Upton homered and stole a base as the Angels defeated the Astros on Sunday night in Houston.

Upton opened the scoring in the ballgame with a run-scoring fielder's choice in the third. He went on to add an extremely-valuable insurance run with a solo shot off of Luke Gregerson in the eighth. He's now hitting .279/.366/.555 with career-bests of 35 homers and 108 RBI in what has been the finest offensive season of his career.
Sep 25 - 12:00 AM

Luis Valbuena went 1-for-4 with a double and two RBI as the Angels topped the Astros on Sunday.

His two-run double broke a 4-4 tie in the seventh inning and put the Halos on top for good. He's hitting just .194/.286/.424 on the season, though he has clubbed 21 home runs and plated 60 runs.
Sep 25 - 12:00 AM

Blake Parker slammed the door on the Astros in the ninth inning on Sunday, recording his seventh save of the season.

Parker was tasked with protecting a two-run lead and facing the top three hitters in the Astros' lineup, but he carved them up without issue. The 32-year-old has come out of nowhere this season to blossom into a lock-down option at the back end of the Angels' bullpen. He now boasts a 2.31 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 84/16 K/BB ratio across his 66 innings on the season.
