Jorge Soler will have his right side examined.

Soler recently missed some time with tightness in his side and he was moving gingerly during Sunday's game. The Cubs should have an update on his status by the end of the day Monday or Tuesday afternoon.

Luis Severino was ejected from Monday's game against the Blue Jays in the second inning.

Severino grazed Josh Donaldson in the elbow with a pitch in the bottom of the first inning and Blue Jays hurler J.A. Happ answered by hitting Chase Headley with a pitch in the top of the second. Severino responded by hitting Justin Smoak with a pitch in the bottom of the frame, which led to a benches-clearing brawl. Yankees manager Joe Girardi, pitching coach Larry Rothschild, and bench coach Rob Thomson have also been ejected.

Garrett Richards (elbow) is slated to face live hitters on Wednesday.

Assuming all goes well, Richards will make his first appearance in the instructional league next Monday. The 28-year-old was diagnosed with a torn right ulnar collateral ligament back in May, but he decided to undergo stem cell treatments in hopes of avoiding Tommy John surgery.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said that Aledmys Diaz traveled to Miami on Monday to be with family and close friends following the tragic passing of Jose Fernandez.

Diaz was childhood friends and neighbors with Fernandez, who was killed early Sunday morning in a boating accident. "That was a place he needed to be today," said Matheny.
Sep 26 - 7:10 PM

Matt Carpenter has been dealing with an issue to his right ring finger.

That explains his absence from Monday's lineup. It's apparently been a lingering issue, so the hope is that the rest will improve his symptoms. Not ideal with the Cardinals fighting to stay in the race. Greg Garcia will start at second base and bat leadoff Monday.
Sep 26 - 6:57 PM

Masahiro Tanaka (forearm) will see Dr. Christopher Ahmad in New York on Tuesday to determine whether he can make another start before the end of the season.

Tanaka was scratched from Monday's start against the Blue Jays due to a mild forearm strain. His status up in the air, especially with the Yankees on the verge of being eliminated from playoff contention. There should be more clarity on his status in the next day or so.
Sep 26 - 6:55 PM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Starlin Castro (hamstring) is available as a pinch-hitter Monday.

Castro has been out since September 17 with a Grade 1 strain of his right hamstring, but he felt well enough to run the bases on Monday. It's unclear when he could be ready to return to the starting lineup.
Sep 26 - 6:49 PM

Tony Barnette (oblique) is not available for Monday's game.

Barnette hasn't appeared in a game since September 4 due to an oblique strain, but he made it through a live batting practice session on Saturday with no issues. The Rangers will give him an extra day of rest before potentially using him in Tuesday's game. Barnette owns a 2.15 ERA and 47/15 K/BB ratio over 58 2/3 innings this season.
Sep 26 - 6:29 PM

Rangers manager Jeff Banister said that he would like to get Jeremy Jeffress into Monday's game.

Jeffress returned to the Rangers on Friday after a stint in rehab following an arrest for suspicion of DWI last month, but he has yet to appear in a game. He's likely to be eased back into high-leverage situations.
Sep 26 - 6:23 PM

Taylor Jungmann will not make his final scheduled start this weekend against the Rockies due to hip injury.

Jungmann suffered the injury in his most recent start. He'll finish the year with a 7.76 ERA over six starts and two relief appearances. Brent Suter will start on Friday while Wily Peralta will get the nod on Saturday.
Sep 26 - 6:16 PM

Kevin Kiermaier (hand) hopes to return to the starting lineup on Tuesday.

Kiermaier was hit in the hand by a pitch on Sunday and has been dealing with more soreness than originally expected. The hope is that some rest and treatment will do the trick.
Sep 26 - 6:12 PM

Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said Monday that they don't anticipate Bryce Harper's thumb injury to be serious.

Harper injured his left thumb Sunday when he was forced to make an awkward slide on a fake tag from Jung Ho Kang at third base. Rizzo hasn't seen Harper's X-rays yet, but we should have more clarity on the situation at some point in the next 24 hours.
Sep 26 - 5:58 PM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Luis Severino will be limited to around 50 pitches on Monday.

Severino has been pitching out of the bullpen this month, but he's making a spot start in place of Masahiro Tanaka (forearm) for Monday's game with the Blue Jays. Most fantasy owners can skip this matchup.
Sep 26 - 5:46 PM

Lance McCullers (elbow) will continue his rehab at the Astros' spring training complex in Kissimmee, Florida.

McCullers, out since early August with a mild elbow sprain, was able to make it through a 30-pitch bullpen session on Thursday. The next step will be throwing live batting practice. The Astros would have to make an unlikely run at the playoffs for him to have a chance to make it back this year, but the good news is that he's making progress.
Sep 26 - 5:35 PM

Colby Rasmus (hip, groin) is not expected to play again this season.

Rasmus has been sent to Philadelphia to see a specialist for his hip/groin issue. It's worth noting that he's not even listed on the lineup card for Monday's game. Rasmus returned to the Astros on a one-year, $15.8 million qualifying offer this season, but he'll finish the year with an ugly .206/.286/.355 batting line over 107 games.
