Royals prospect right-hander Kyle Zimmer reinjured his right shoulder Saturday while pitching for Peoria Javelinas in the Arizona Fall League.

Zimmer struck out 11 batters over five innings in his second AFL start, but he was forced to exit after just one inning on Saturday. The fear is that it's the same injury which limited Zimmer to 4 2/3 innings this season in the minors. The Royals will likely play it safe and shut him down for the rest of the fall. "More than likely, we're not going to push it any further this fall and just try to get this under control," said Royals assistant general manager J.J. Picollo.

Astros prospect right-hander Mark Appel has tossed 12 scoreless innings over three starts in the Arizona Fall League.

Appel really struggled with High-A Lancaster this season, but he thrived after a promotion to Double-A Corpus Christi in late July and has kept it going so far in the Arizona Fall League. The 23-year-old tossed five scoreless innings in his latest outing on Monday and has allowed just four hits with a 12/3 K/BB ratio over his three starts. "I don't know if there's one thing I can pick out and say this is what I'm doing differently than in the season," said Appel. "I think it's a combination of continuing to work hard, not giving up and trusting my stuff. I've gotten here because I'd been doing some things the right way and I'm continuing on the same track I tried to finish the season on in Corpus Christi."

Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that it "doesn't sound like" the Twins are ready to offer Paul Molitor their manager job just yet.

Berardino says that "more due diligence remains." Molitor is viewed as the odds-on favorite for the gig, with Berardino adding that he has a leg up because he sat in on the team's organizational meetings last week. The Twins could still conduct additional interviews, though, with Orioles bench coach John Russell reportedly on the radar. In addition to Molitor, other candidates for the job include Torey Lovullo, Doug Mientkiewicz, Gene Glynn and Sandy Alomar Jr. Joe McEwing and DeMarlo Hale interviewed but have reportedly been told they will not get the job.

Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports that the Cardinals are "expected to heavily consider" Marco Gonzales for a spot in next year's bullpen.

Gonzales' future is as a starter, and he'll report to spring training as an option for the starting five. However, he's unlikely to crack the Opening Day rotation given the team's depth, and it sounds like they might prefer using him in relief rather than putting him in the Triple-A rotation.

Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak indicated on Monday that Carlos Martinez projects as the team's primary setup man next season.

Obviously a lot can happen between now and spring training with the Cards' roster. But while Martinez has loads of upside as a starter, there might not be room for him in the rotation as things currently shake out. "You can see there is a spot for Carlos in that bullpen that looks pretty nice when it fits right," Mozeliak said. "We’ll have him continue to prepare (to start), but there are only so many innings that we have in spring for starters. He’s always been an option, but we do like him in the back end of the bullpen."
