Billy Hamilton is absent from the Reds' starting lineup on Saturday afternoon.

Dustin Pedroia is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

The veteran second baseman has been dealing with a nasal contusion so the Red Sox have been monitoring his workload. Brock Holt is starting in his place at second base.
Sep 23 - 12:31 PM

Manny Pina is considered day-to-day with his left thumb sprain.

He sustained the injury during a tag play at the plate on Thursday. He should rejoin the lineup at some point next week.

Domingo Santana is not in the Brewers' starting lineup on Saturday.

It looks to be just a regular day of rest for the hard-hitting outfielder. He'll surely be back in the lineup on Sunday, a day that he has posted massive offensive numbers this season.

Jose Altuve in not in the Astros starting lineup on Saturday.

Manager A.J. Hinch wants to get all of his regulars a few days off over the final week-plus of the regular season, so a few are sitting Saturday. Marwin Gonzalez is starting in his place at second base.

Josh Reddick (back) was held out of the Astros lineup on Saturday.

Reddick left Friday's game with back soreness, so he'll get an extra day to rest as a precautionary measure. Derek Fisher is starting in his place in right field and batting seventh.

George Springer is not in the Astros starting lineup on Saturday.

It's just a regular day of rest for the All-Star outfielder. Cameron Maybin is starting in center field and batting eighth on Saturday.
Sep 23 - 10:40 AM

Shawn Kelley is set to visit a doctor on Saturday to evaluate his arm injury.

Kelley was removed from Friday's outing after experiencing numbness in his arm and swelling in the fingers of his right hand. The Nationals should have an update on his status after Saturday's exam.
Sep 23 - 10:20 AM

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that Brian Snitker will meet with the Braves' front office as soon as Saturday to learn his managerial fate.

At this point, it would be a surprise if the Braves elect to keep Snitker on for 2018 after a disappointing first season in their new stadium where they have gone 69-83 and sit 22 1/2 games behind the Nationals in the National League East. Overall, the Braves are 128-148 in two seasons with Snitker at the helm.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times believes that the Rays could decide to skip Alex Cobb's final start of the season.

The right-hander is in his first full season back from Tommy John surgery and has already logged 179 1/3 innings. Rather than push him any further, the Rays may decide to just sit him down as they are out of contention. He has had a very solid season overall, registering a 12-10 record, 3.66 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 128/44 K/BB ratio. He'll be one of the top starting pitchers available on the free agent market this winter and has positioned himself very well for a nice payday.

Amed Rosario (illness) went 1-for-4 as he rejoined the Mets' starting lineup in Friday's victory over the Nationals.

Rosario missed the previous three games due to a nasty bout of gastroenteritis that was going around the Mets' clubhouse. The rookie shortstop is now hitting .265/.291/.412 with four homers, nine RBI and seven stolen bases in his first 39 games at the big league level.
Sep 23 - 8:25 AM

Juan Lagares (thumb) went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in his return to the Mets' lineup on Friday.

Lagares missed several games after injuring his thumb on a diving catch, but appears to be over it now. He also swiped his seventh base of the season in the contest.
Sep 23 - 8:23 AM

Hector Rondon (elbow) returned to the mound on Friday, striking out a pair in a scoreless inning of work.

Rondon had been shut down since early August due to bone chips in his pitching elbow. Getting him back and healthy would be a nice boost for the Cubs as they get ready for the postseason.
Sep 23 - 8:20 AM

Chris Iannetta had a three-run homer and a grand slam as part of an eight-RBI night as the Diamondbacks beat the Marlins 13-11 on Friday.

A career high in RBI, topping the seven-RBI game he had against the Padres three months ago in June. Iannetta, who spent way too much of the first half playing behind Jeff Mathis, is hitting .257/.356/.514 with 15 homers in just 257 at-bats. That's pretty good for someone the Diamondbacks lucked into when no one else wanted to make a significant commitment; he's playing for just $1.5 million after signing in January.
Sep 23 - 2:19 AM

Zack Greinke was pulled after allowing eight runs in four innings Friday against the Marlins.

It's the first time all year that he's allowed more than six runs. He have given up seven total in his previous five starts. Tonight's outing took his ERA from 2.87 to 3.18, his highest mark since early June. He's slated to face the Giants next week in his final start of the regular season.
