Domonic Brown was a late scratch to the Phillies starting lineup on Friday due to a sprained right hand.
He should be considered day-to-day for now, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the Phillies take things extremely cautiously with him down the stretch. The 27-year-old is hitting a disappointing .237/.288/.356 on the season with 10 homers and 61 RBI.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi said late Friday that there is a "distinct possibility" that Jacoby Ellsbury (hamstring) will be shut down for the remainder of the 2014 season.
Ellsbury sustained a strained hamstring in Friday's win over the Blue Jays and is set to undergo an MRI on Saturday. With the Yankees playoff hopes all but finished, there's no reason to rush Ellsbury back and risk further aggravation.
Royals recalled LHP Tim Collins from Triple-A Omaha.
The diminutive southpaw struggled in 17 1/3 innings with the Royals earlier in the season. It's all hands on deck for Kansas City as they push toward the postseason.
Stephen Vogt (ankle) returned to action on Friday, drawing a pair of walks and scoring a run in a victory over the Phillies.
He finished the night 0-for-2. Vogt had been on the shelf for the past two weeks due to a sprained left ankle. He should be in there on most days for the remainder of the regular season.
David Peralta (back) appeared as a pinch-hitter on Friday, the first time that he had taken the field since September 5.
Peralta has been dealing with discomfort in his back that has been difficult to get over. With all of the extra players on the Diamondbacks roster, expect him to get a few more days off over the final week of the regular season.
Michael Morse returned to action on Friday, going 0-for-2 with a pair of strikeouts in a loss to the Padres.
Morse was not in the starting lineup, appearing as a pinch-hitter for Tim Lincecum in the eighth inning. The good sign, is that he remained in the game to play left field, meaning a return to the lineup should be imminent.
Ryan Rua went 4-for-5 with a couple of runs scored in the Rangers' 12-3 rout of the Angels on Friday.
Rua has nine hits in his last four starts, and he's now hitting .320 since his callup, though that comes with no homers and just one walk in 75 at-bats. He remains a long shot to enter next season with a role in the Texas outfield, though he's certainly helped his stock some.
Lisalverto Bonilla picked up a win after allowing two runs in five innings Friday against the Angels.
Spotted seven runs in the first two innings, Bonilla had an easy path to his second big-league victory, though he did walk four along the way. His long-term role is probably in the bullpen, but he'll get one more start next week against the Astros or A's.
