Kolten Wong said Sunday that he's still feeling soreness in his hamstrings.

The Cardinals initially referred to Wong's hamstring issues as cramps, but it appears that he might be dealing with at least a mild strain. If that's the case, he wouldn't appear to be a given to return Monday for their big series versus the Brewers. Yairo Munoz is at second base again Sunday.

Mike Trout is absent from the Angels' lineup Sunday.

It looks to be a routine day off for the superstar. Michael Hermosillo is handling center field in Trout's absence.
Sep 23 - 11:35 AM

Aaron Hicks (ankle) is expected to be ready to play when the Yankees begin a road trip Monday in Tampa Bay.

Hicks fouled a ball off his ankle Saturday and is still sore, although he remained in that game and delivered a walk-off hit. He'll be fine.

Adam Eaton (knee) remained out of the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

He's played just once over the last week because of soreness in his surgically-repaired left knee. The Nats are also resting Juan Soto in this one, as they have Victor Robles in left field and Michael Taylor in center.
Sep 23 - 11:05 AM

James Paxton (illness) is listed as the Mariners' scheduled start on Monday versus the Athletics.

Paxton has been throwing for the last several days after missing a couple weeks of action because of a combination of pneumonia and the flu. He doesn't figure to be ready for a full workload Monday but is in line to get two starts in the final week.

Kris Bryant is not in the Cubs' lineup Sunday.

It looks to be a routine day off. David Bote is handling third base.
Sep 23 - 10:41 AM

Joey Votto is absent from the Reds' lineup Sunday.

Tucker Barnhart is at first base and Curt Casali is at catcher. Billy Hamilton is also getting a breather in this one, with Gabby Guerrero handling center field.

Lorenzo Cain (intercostal) is back in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

Cain pinch-hit in Saturday's game and is back in the lineup Sunday for the first time since Tuesday. Ryan Braun and Jonathan Schoop are sitting this one out, as Curtis Granderson is getting a start in the outfield and Orlando Arcia and Travis Shaw are covering the middle infield.

Edgar Santana (elbow/forearm) will undergo an MRI on Monday.

Santana left an appearance Friday with discomfort in his right elbow and forearm. His season is surely over regardless, but we should find out more after Monday's exam how serious his injury is.
Sep 23 - 10:24 AM

Aaron Judge is not in the Yankees' lineup Sunday.

Didi Gregorius and Aaron Hicks are also sitting out in the Yanks' first game since they officially clinched a playoff spot. Judge is 3-for-19 with one RBI in five games since returning from his wrist injury.
Sep 23 - 10:20 AM

Ji-Man Choi (knee) drew a walk as a pinch-hitter Saturday in Toronto.

Choi exited Friday's game and didn't start Saturday because of a sore left knee, but he was able to come off the bench. He could return to the lineup as soon as Sunday.

Blake Treinen earned a win in a second straight game after pitching a scoreless ninth Saturday against the Twins.

The A's won 3-2 in the bottom of the ninth when a Trevor Hildenberger wild pitch allowed Stephen Piscotty to score. Treinen's last three appearances have all resulted in wins. His last save chance came two weeks ago on Sept. 8.
Sep 23 - 12:32 AM

Mike Fiers allowed one run over six innings Saturday in his start against the Twins.

Fiers left with a one-run lead, but the pen blew it immediately. Still, the team did prevail in the ninth to move to 8-1 in Fiers' nine starts since he was acquired. Fiers has a 2.90 ERA in that span.
Sep 23 - 12:30 AM

Willians Astudillo went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI against the A's on Saturday.

Make that a .338 average for Astudillo, who is hitting his way into the Twins' plans for 2018. He's struck out twice and walked once in 73 plate appearances now.
Sep 23 - 12:27 AM

Rich Hill pitched seven innings and allowed one run in beating the Padres on Saturday.

Given his recent string of subpar performances, it was a little bit of a concern when the Dodgers pushed Hill back a day. However, he responded tonight with his best outing since... well, since the last time he faced the Padres on Aug. 24. He still hasn't had a quality start against anyone else in six weeks. Overall, he's 10-5 with a 3.87 ERA.
