Devon Travis (shoulder) is back in the Blue Jays' starting lineup on Thursday night.
Travis missed a handful of games after injuring his left shoulder in Monday's benches-clearing fracas with the Yankees. He is starting at second base and batting ninth Thursday versus Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez.
Kris Bryant is out of the Cubs' starting lineup on Thursday night against the Pirates.
Anthony Rizzo and Dexter Fowler are also sitting as Cubs manager Joe Maddon continues to find rest for his regulars with the NLDS set to begin next week. Tommy La Stella is at third base and batting leadoff. Javier Baez is at first base and Albert Almora is in center field.
Jason Hammel has been scratched from his scheduled Friday start against the Reds due to right elbow tightness.
Hammel has looked off all month, and this might officially rule him out of the mix for the Cubs' postseason roster. A new starter for Friday has not been announced. The National League Central champs could make it a bullpen game at Great American Ball Park.
Jean Segura made an early exit from Thursday's game against the Nationals with an apparent injury.
Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic says Segura "may have tweaked his side or maybe his back" during his seventh-inning at-bat. There should be an update soon. Segura was 1-for-2 with a walk and a run scored.
Mookie Betts is out of the Red Sox starting lineup on Thursday night against the Yankees.
Dustin Pedroia, Hanley Ramirez, and Sandy Leon are also receiving a day of rest after the Red Sox clinched the American League East title on Wednesday night with the Blue Jays' loss to the Orioles. David Ortiz is starting at DH in what will be his final game at Yankee Stadium.
