Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) is questionable for this weekend's series against the Dodgers.
Nunez initially injured his right hamstring while making a slide in Sunday's game against the Padres. He subsequently underwent an MRI. While nothing major was discovered, there, the Giants aren't going to push the infielder back into action before he is ready. Gordon Beckham could start in his place if he is unable to go this weekend.
Lucas Duda has been scratched from Wednesday's game against the Marlins.
Duda was originally in the lineup, but when the Mets took the field, it was James Loney who trotted over to first. Further updates as to why Duda is being held out should be provided later on Wednesday night.
Jabari Blash (finger) has been shut down for the rest of the 2016 season.
Blash has been sidelined by a sprained left middle finger since mid-August. He will rest his injured digit for the next 4-6 weeks. The Padres hope he will be able to play at some point during winter ball. In 71 at-bats with the major league team this season, the 27-year-old outfielder hit just .169/.298/.324 with three homers and five RBI.
Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Wednesday that he will "back off" catcher Francisco Cervelli (hand) the rest of the way.
Injuries have limited Cervelli to just 101 games played in 2016. With it looking increasingly likely that the veteran catcher will miss the final few games of the campaign, Eric Fryer is starting behind the plate against the Cubs on Wednesday and batting eighth.
Albert Pujols (foot) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the A's.
Pujols has not played since Monday due to discomfort in his foot related to plantar fasciitis. Mike Trout will serve as the Angels' designated hitter on Wednesday while C.J. Cron mans first base. It is possible the veteran Pujols won't play again this season, but that has not yet been determined for certain.
Chase Whitley will start against the Rangers on Sunday.
Just a little bit of shuffling here. Drew Smyly had been slated to start Sunday's regular-season finale, but the task will fall to Whitley instead. This will be his first start of the 2016 campaign. Better late than never. In 10 1/3 innings with the major league club this season, he has allowed five runs (two earned) on seven hits.
Aaron Nola (elbow) has started into a throwing program.
Nola has yet to begin throwing off a mound, but he is able to play catch. His 2016 season was cut short due to a UCL sprain and low-grade flexor sprain in his right elbow. The 23-year-old right-hander has been on the shelf since the end of July. He is expected to be ready for the start of spring training in 2017.
Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said that Neftali Feliz (arm) is almost certainly done for the 2016 season.
No surprise here. Feliz was just recently cleared to throw off of flat ground as he continues to rehab from a bout of right arm discomfort. With mere days remaining in the regular season, a return to the major league mound would have been miraculous. The 28-year-old right-hander finishes out the 2016 season holding a 3.52 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 61/21 K/BB ratio over 53 2/3 frames.
