Aledmys Diaz is back in the Cardinals' lineup on Tuesday night against the Reds.
Diaz was excused from the club on Monday to visit and mourn with the family of Jose Fernandez in Miami. The two grew up together in Cuba. Diaz will start at shortstop and bat seventh Tuesday versus Reds right-hander Robert Stephenson.
Jason Kipnis is out of the Indians' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Tigers.
Mike Napoli, Jose Ramirez, and Francisco Lindor will also sit after the Indians clinched the American League Central on Monday night. Tigers ace Justin Verlander should dominate this particular Cleveland lineup.
Devon Travis (shoulder) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Orioles.
Travis left Monday's game against the Yankees with a left shoulder injury, but the severity isn't yet known. Darwin Barney is filling in at second base on Tuesday while Ezequiel Carrera will play right field and bat leadoff.
Giants acquired INF Gordon Beckham from the Braves for cash considerations.
Beckham will give the Giants some infield depth this week with Eduardo Nunez and Brandon Crawford banged up, but he will not be eligible for the postseason. The 30-year-old is batting just .217/.300/.354 across 273 plate appearances this season.
Lucas Duda will start at first base Tuesday against the Marlins.
This will be his fourth start since returning from the disabled list. James Loney is on the bench and figures to lose some starts against righties this week as the Mets try to get some more punch in their lineup.
