Yankees placed 1B Mark Teixeira on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 27, with a right shin bone bruise.

The Yankees threw Teixeira's fantasy owners a bone here, as DL moves are rarely made in September. The transaction occurred because they wanted to bring back reliever Nick Rumbelow before his 10-day waiting period was up. Teixeira is getting around on crutches at the moment and is expected to miss at least a couple weeks.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mets and Matt Harvey's agent, Scott Boras, are disagreeing about what Harvey's innings limit should be.

Boras says that doctors advised a 180-inning limit for Harvey before the season, but general manager Sandy Alderson is contending that the pitcher has had a "soft" innings limit all along. Harvey is sitting at 166 1/3 innings currently. The Mets plan to skip one more of the right-hander's starts but have no plans to shut him down. Boras can be upset all he wants if/when Harvey surpasses the 180-inning threshold, but he has no recourse here.

Josh Johnson (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Lake Elsinore on Friday.

He'll throw one inning Friday and is set for another inning for Lake Elsinore on Monday. It looks like the Padres will bring Johnson back as a reliever, assuming he makes it back at all.

Lucas Duda (back) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Binghamton on Saturday.

Corey Hart (shoulder) has returned home to Arizona and will not be activated from the disabled list.

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Zack Godley from Double-A Mobile.

Ricky Nolasco (ankle) could be available for the Twins should they make it to postseason play.

Nolasco had surgery in early July to remove bone fragments from his right ankle, but he resumed throwing a couple weeks ago and with have a bullpen session Monday. Even if he's healthy enough come October, the Twins might not end up carrying him on their potential postseason roster. However, the good news is that it looks like he'll have a normal offseason.

Carlos Carrasco (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session on Friday.

If it goes well, Carrasco could rejoin the Indians' rotation early next week during the series against the Royals. The right-hander has missed the last two weeks with a shoulder injury, but he was cleared of any structural damage and Cleveland is confident the ailment isn't a big deal.
