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

    Advice: 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. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:23 pm
  • Jungmann (hip) won't start this weekend

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

    Advice: 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. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:35 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Rasmus (hip, groin) likely done for year
    Colby Rasmus (hip, groin) is not expected to play again this season.

    Advice: 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.

  • Marte (back) remains out of Pirates' lineup
    Starling Marte (back) remains out of the Pirates' lineup Monday versus the Cubs.

    Advice: Marte hasn't played since Thursday due to nagging back spasms. He's iffy for the final week, so fantasy owners should have a backup plan at the ready. Adam Frazier will make the start in left field and bat seventh against Kyle Hendricks. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:30 pm
    Day-to-Day
  • Matz sent for another shoulder checkup
    Steven Matz was sent for another checkup on his shoulder on Monday.

    Advice: Matz was originally expected to make his return to the Mets' rotation this past Friday, but he was scratched after experiencing renewed soreness in his left shoulder. He's not expected to pitch this month and any contribution in the playoffs could also be a stretch, even in a relief role. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:25 pm
