Giants transferred RHP Matt Cain from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move makes some room on the 40-man roster. Cain is out for the season following surgery to remove bone chips and bone spurs from his right elbow.

Giants transferred 2B Marco Scutaro from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster prior to the Giants making some call-ups Tuesday. Scutaro is done for the season due to his chronic back ailment.

Charlie Blackmon delivered a walk-off single on Monday against the Giants.

Blackmon had been 0-for-5 coming into his at-bat in the bottom of the ninth inning. He singled off of Sergio Romo to score Michael McKenry and send the fans (if there are any left) home happy with a 10-9 win. Blackmon struggled in August (.245/.291/.363), but his season numbers are strong (.289/.335/.441) and hopefully this hit can get him fired up for the last month of the year before the Rockies end their lost season.

Corey Dickerson went 1-for-3 and scored three runs on Monday.

Dickerson wasn't able to do much with the bat in this contest, but when he did get on base his teammates were able to knock him in. Dickerson's numbers are down some in the second half (.279/.316/.537 vs .325/.391/.579), but the dips aren't horribly noticeable. He's hit twenty home runs and driven in 63.

Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Kendall Graveman from Triple-A Buffalo.

An eighth-round pick last season, Graveman burned through four levels of the minors this season, posting a 1.83 ERA and 115/31 K/BB ratio over 167 1/3 innings. He gets by more on savvy than stuff and figures to be used in relief for the Jays.

Michael McKenry went 3-for-4 in the Rockies' 10-9 win over the Giants on Monday.

McKenry didn't do anything too flashy, singling three times. McHenry's only had 131 ABs for the Rockies, but he's been able to make the most of his opportunities. He's slashing .313/.388/.481. Despite the seemingly lofty heights of the slash-line, he doesn't get enough starting at-bats to really merit fantasy consideration unless you're desperate.

Michael Morse (hip) will undergo an MRI on Tuesday.

Morse tweaked his left hip while taking batting practice on Monday. He said he's already feeling better and the MRI is precautionary, but more will obviously be known following Tuesday's exam.
Sep 1 - 9:48 PM

Hunter Pence hit a three-run home run on Monday.

The first inning, three-run shot off of Rockies' starter Franklin Morales was Pence's only hit of the game. He finished the contest 1-for-4. The bomb gave him twenty homers for the season to go with 68 RBI. He's now got a 14-game hitting streak working. Pence is slashing .296/.349/.488.
Sep 1 - 9:44 PM

Tim Hudson allowed six runs (five earned) over five innings against the Rockies on Monday.

Hudson wasn't even the worst starter in this old school Rocky Mountain slug-fest, as Franklin Morales exists. Hudson was actually out to a 7-2 lead as he went to the mound to start the sixth. The Giants put four runs up in the frame and drove Hudson from the game. Chalk it up to "these things happen" and "welcome to Colorado." The rough outing set his ERA back to 3.08. He'll move on from this one without anybody being worse the wear. The veteran continues to put up a lovely season, with a 3.08 ERA and 1.16 WHIP. He'll try to rebound in the thicker air of Detroit in his next start.
Sep 1 - 9:39 PM

Franklin Morales gave up seven runs in four and a third innings on Monday.

Another no good, very bad start for Morales. He allowed nine hits, struck out three and walked four in his time on the mound. The only reason he didn't pick up the loss is that the Rockies' offense was equal to the task of neutralizing Morales' numbers, as the team came back from a 7-2 deficit to actually take a 9-7 lead before the Giants tied it in the ninth (the Rockies would win it in the bottom of the frame). There's not much to analyze here. This marks the second start in Morales' last three in which he's given up at least six runs. On the season, he has a 5.46 ERA, a 1.64 WHIP and a BAA of .299. He'll take on the Padres in his next outing.
Sep 1 - 9:38 PM

Miguel Cabrera hit two home runs and finished 4-for-5 in the Tigers' 12-1 win over the Indians on Monday.

Cabrera was in one of his scary zones on Labor Day. He hit a two-run homer in the first inning and book-ended that with a solo shot in the eighth. In between, he hit a few singles. He finished the game with three RBI and four runs scored. While Cabrera's season slash line of .304/.367/.501 would be considered great for almost any other player, for Cabrera it constitutes a slight down year. Most noticeably, even with the two home runs on Monday, Cabrera has only hit 19 long balls during the 2014 campaign. He had only hit three in the second-half coming into Monday's firestorm.
Sep 1 - 9:10 PM

Victor Martinez hit a home run and a double on Monday.

Martinez hit his two-run home run off of Corey Kluber in the third. In addition to the two hits, Martinez scored twice, walked twice and drove in two. The home run was his 28th of the year, and put him up to 90 RBI (four shy of teammate Miguel Cabrera). He's slashing a superb .329/.400/.563 as he attempts to help lead the Tigers to the promised land.
Sep 1 - 9:00 PM

J.D. Martinez hit a solo home run in Monday's 12-1 win over the Indians.

Martinez also added a single to finish 1-for-3. The solo shot off of Corey Kluber gave Martinez 60 RBI and 18 long balls for the season. The third-year player has been putting up career-high numbers in his first year with the Tigers, as he's already set personal season marks in home runs (18), RBI (60) and runs (43). He's slashing .304/.343/.542.
Sep 1 - 8:51 PM

Nick Castellanos went 3-for-5 on Monday against the Indians.

Castellanos' three singles were part of the Tigers twenty-hit, twelve-run Labor Day party. Sluggers Victor Martinez and Miguel Cabrera were doing the heavy lifting in this one, but Castellanos allowed the bottom of the lineup to keep things moving. On the year, he's slashing .266/.313/.412.
Sep 1 - 8:43 PM

David Price tossed seven innings of one-run ball in Monday's win over the Indians.

In Price's seven innings of work, he walked just two and struck out eight while scattering eight hits. Price was facing off with Indians' ace Corey Kluber, but what looked like a fun pitching match-up quickly dissipated into the winds of September, as Kluber was shelled. The lone run on Price's line came in the very first inning, on an RBI-double by Carlos Santana. Detroit ended up winning 12-1. Price has had his ups and downs with the Tigers, but starts like Labor Day's are the reason why they acquired the lefty. Between the Tigers and Rays, Price has a 3.25 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP.
