Jon Jay (wrist) is expected to be activated from the disabled list Friday.

Jay has been out since June 30 with a left wrist injury, but his rehab has gone well and he's ready to return. Jay won't have a clear path to playing time upon activation, but he should get into the lineup a few days a week until the end of the season. Jay was hitting .223/.311/.265 before the injury.

Matt Cain (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment Friday with Triple-A Sacramento.

Cain is expected to throw two innings as he rehabs from nerve irritation in his right elbow. The right-hander owns an ugly 6.15 ERA and 1.58 WHIP through 10 starts, and the club will surely take their time with him in his rehab. It's unclear whether we'll see him again in 2015.
Sep 2 - 9:03 PM

Aaron Hicks (hamstring) will rejoin the Twins on Friday.

Hicks is first eligible to return from the disabled list Thursday, but he'll be back a day later when the Twins open a series against the Astros. Hicks was hitting .268/.318/.411 before going down with a left hamstring strain in mid-August.

Daniel Murphy left Wednesday's game with mild left quad discomfort.

The Mets called the move "precautionary," but Murphy has missed time with an injury to the same quad already this season. More should be known Thursday, but it sounds as though he's day to day for now.

Domonic Brown left Wednesday's game against the Mets with an undisclosed injury.

Brown flipped over a short outfield wall while chasing a ball in the second inning -- he missed, and Ruben Tejada ended up with a two-run inside-the-park homer -- and while he stayed in the game temporarily, he was removed to start the fourth inning. Cody Asche entered to play left field while Darnell Sweeney slid from left to right. The Phillies should shed some light on Brown's situation shortly.

Daniel Murphy left Wednesday's game against the Phillies with a possible quad injury.

The injury was reported by SNY Mets field reporter Steve Gelbs but hasn't been confirmed by the team. Murphy left in the third inning Wednesday, replaced by Michael Cuddyer at first base. The Mets should provide some information on Murphy's status shortly.
Sep 2 - 8:17 PM

Didi Gregorius went 2-for-4 with a home run and three runs scored, and the Yankees outlasted the Red Sox 13-8 on Wednesday.

Gregorius scored three of the team's 13 runs and hit one of their five homers on the afternoon. It was the third homer in his last seven games as Gregorius has been one of the hottest hitters in the game lately. He's 16-for-28 in that span, collecting 12 RBI and eight runs scored. The shortstop is now batting a respectable .272/.321/.372 with eight home runs, 44 RBI and 49 runs scored on the year.

Twins general manager Terry Ryan said pitching prospect Jose Berrios will not be called up before the end of the season.

Ryan cited the 21-year-old's innings total -- he's thrown 70 1/3 innings at Triple-A Rochester this season -- as the reason the club won't use Berrios down the stretch. Berrios remains a high-ceiling pitching prospect, registering a 2.67 ERA, 1.098 WHIP and 78/13 K/BB ratio in 11 starts this year.
Sep 2 - 8:01 PM

Xander Bogaerts went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in a loss to the Yankees on Wednesday.

Bogaerts hit the solo homer in the sixth inning, his fifth home run of the season. The shortstop has hit over .300 in every month since June, and he's had multi-hit efforts in five of his last seven games. The great stretch has Bogarts overall line up to .319/.349/.414 with 63 RBI and 60 runs scored.
Sep 2 - 7:57 PM

Stephen Drew had a big game Wednesday, going 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Red Sox.

Drew hit a three-run homer in the third inning, one of five home runs in the game. It was the latest in a stretch of good games for Drew, who is 9-for-12 with two doubles, two homers, nine RBI and six runs scored in his last four games. On the year, Drew is hitting just .211/.281/.404.
Sep 2 - 7:51 PM

Greg Bird went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

The Yankees scored 13 runs in the victory, and Bird's two-run homer off Red Sox starter Henry Owens in the second inning got the party started. The homer was Bird's third in 18 games since being promoted. The first baseman is batting .254/.333/.429 with 12 RBI and 12 runs scored through his first few weeks in the bigs.
Sep 2 - 7:47 PM

Henry Owens didn't even escape the second inning Wednesday, allowing seven runs over 1 2/3 innings in a loss to the Yankees.

Even more surprising was the fact that Owens actually worked a perfect top of the first inning before completely falling apart in the second. The Yankees managed six hits -- including two home runs -- and two walks against Owens before he exited. His ERA rose from 4.03 to 5.87 in the start, evening his record at 2-2. Owens will look for a better showing Tuesday against the Blue Jays.
Sep 2 - 7:43 PM

Masahiro Tanaka allowed four runs over 6 1/3 innings in a win over the Red Sox on Wednesday.

It wasn't the best outing Tanaka has ever had, but it didn't need to be as the Yanks batters provided him 13 runs of support. Tanaka gave up six hits and a walk, striking out five in the win. The right-hander improved to 11-6 with a 3.73 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 115/25 K/BB ratio through 20 starts. Tanaka will next take the mound Tuesday against the Orioles.
Sep 2 - 7:42 PM

Lucas Duda (back) swung a bat Wednesday for the first time since his back injury.

Duda won't come off the disabled list when first eligible on Sunday, but it's still a step in the right direction. Duda hit the DL on August 22 with a small thoracic herniation in his back. With minor league seasons winding down Duda might need to do all his rehab with the Mets, but he won't be rushed back now that rosters have expanded and the Mets have a lead in the NL East. Still, Duda should be back sometime this month.

Michael Taylor (knee) was a late scratch from the Nationals' lineup on Wednesday.

Taylor was originally in the lineup for the series finale against the Cardinals, but he was replaced by Bryce Harper in center field shortly before the start of the game. Harper slid over from right field, Jayson Werth moved from left to right and Danny Espinosa, who wasn't previously in the lineup, got the start in left. The Nationals should provide an update on Taylor's status after the game.
