Aaron Hicks was pulled from Monday's game against the Rays with an apparent injury.

Hicks fouled a ball off his ankle Saturday and sat out Sunday before returning to the lineup Monday. He reached on a fielder's choice in the third inning but didn't look to be running at 100 percent, so it's possible he aggravated the ankle injury. The Yankees should have more on his status soon.

An MRI on Andrelton Simmons' right knee came back negative and he hopes to return to the lineup Tuesday.

Simmons injured the knee Sunday when he tumbled awkwardly while trying to field a ground ball, but he has managed to avoid anything serious. Kaleb Cowart is filling in at shortstop Monday.

Aaron Sanchez won't pitch again this season and could have offseason surgery to repair a lingering​ problem in​ his right index​​ finger.

Sanchez has had past blister issues with his right middle finger, but this is a separate ailment that first cropped up in late June when his finger got caught while he was moving a suitcase, causing a deep bruise and swelling. He has already visited two hand specialists and will be examined by a third to determine whether surgery or rest and rehab is the recommended course of action. Sanchez posted a 4.89 ERA over 20 starts this season.

Lourdes Gurriel departed Monday's game versus the Astros with left hamstring tightness.

Gurriel grounded into a double play in the bottom of the first inning and evidently injured his hamstring in the process. At this late stage, a hamstring injury is likely to be a season-ender.

Starlin Castro left the Marlins on Monday to travel back to Florida to be with his wife after she went into labor.

The Marlins are on the road this week and it's unclear whether Castro will rejoin them at some point or just stay home to finish the season. Miguel Rojas got the start at second base Monday.

Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Giants will remove Bobby Evans as general manager.

Schulman says the team will ask Evans to stay in the organization in another job, but it's unclear whether Evans would accept a reduced role or seek a gig elsewhere. Evans has been the team's GM since 2015 and had one year left on his contract. He presided over one playoff appearance but steered two straight losing seasons. Executive vice president Brian Sabean and manager Bruce Bochy are expected to keep their jobs.

Pedro Strop (hamstring) played catch and went through agility drills Monday.

"He was pretty upbeat [Sunday] about where he's at," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. It's looking like Strop has a good chance to be available sometime later this week for a tune-up appearance or two before the postseason. Whether he's thrown right back into closing duties might be another matter.

Dodgers activated RHP J.T. Chargois from the 10-day disabled list.

Chargois missed nearly a month with nerve irritation in his neck. The Dodgers are now at their full capacity of 40 players.
Sep 24 - 6:08 PM

Willy Adames (illness) remained out of the Rays' lineup Monday.

He's missed two straight starts because he's under the weather, although Adames is available off the bench. He'll likely be back in there Tuesday.
Sep 24 - 5:44 PM

Kevin Kiermaier (back, shoulder) is not in the Rays' lineup Monday.

Kiermaier is still sore after leaving Sunday's game following a collision with the outfield wall. He's day-to-day.
Sep 24 - 5:42 PM

Yefry Ramirez is not expected to make his scheduled start Wednesday because of a cut on his finger.

It's unclear whether he might be ready to start later this week. John Means, who was called up Monday, could make his major league debut Tuesday or Wednesday.

Chad Bettis is likely to start Tuesday for the Rockies against the Phillies.

The Rockies need a spot starter with Jon Gray having to move up a day to take Tyler Anderson's spot. Bettis hasn't started a game since mid-August and will be limited to 30-50 pitches Tuesday.
Sep 24 - 5:36 PM

James Paxton (illness) is expected to be limited to around 70-75 pitches during Monday's start against the Athletics.

It will be Paxton's first start in two and a half weeks following a bout with pneumonia and the flu. Fantasy owners should still be rolling Paxton out there even with the limited pitch count and tough matchup.
Sep 24 - 5:26 PM

Jose Ramirez is not in the Indians' lineup Monday.

The Indians are resting a host of regulars, as Francisco Lindor, Michael Brantley, Josh Donaldson and Jason Kipnis are also sitting out. Adam Rosales, Erik Gonzalez, Brandon Guyer, Yandy Diaz and Greg Allen are getting starts.

Carlos Correa (back) could return to the Astros' lineup as soon as Wednesday.

Correa will miss a fifth straight start Monday and isn't expected to play Tuesday, either, but it's possible he'll be back in there Wednesday. The shortstop is dealing with a nagging back injury that dates back to June.
