• Shut down for year
    Manager Alex Cora announced Friday that Jansen will not pitch again this season, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    Advice: Jansen was activated off the COVID-19 injured list last weekend, but he hasn't made an appearance since Sept. 12 and the Red Sox don't have a reason to push him out there in their final two regular-season games. The veteran closer is due a $16 million salary from Boston in 2024. Rotowire.com Today, 12:17 pm
  • Pulled with sore shoulder
    Basabe was removed from Friday's loss to the Blue Jays with left shoulder soreness, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Advice: Basabe fell hard on his shoulder while diving for a ball at third base and it's unclear what his availability might be for the Rays' final two regular-season games. The 23-year-old was 0-for-3 with two strikeouts prior to his early exit Friday at Toronto. Rotowire.com Today, 12:13 pm

  • Exits with apparent injury
    Hoerner was pulled from Friday's game against the Brewers with an apparent knee injury, Tim Stebbins of MLB.com reports.

    Advice: Hoerner fouled a ball off his left knee in the top of the sixth inning and was replaced at second base by Miles Mastrobuoni to begin the bottom of the seventh. Hoerner, who's probably headed for tests, finished the night 0-for-3. Rotowire.com Today, 12:08 pm

  • Could return Saturday
    Urias (illness) is expected to be available for Saturday's game versus the Red Sox, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Advice: Urias was scratched from the lineup Friday because of an illness, but it's nothing serious and he should see at least a little bit of action this weekend before the Orioles begin preparing for the ALDS. They clinched the AL East title Thursday. Rotowire.com Today, 11:53 am

  • Likely available Saturday
    Manager Brandon Hyde said Rutschman (illness) will "probably" be available for Saturday's game against the Red Sox, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Advice: Rutschman was scratched from the lineup Friday because he was feeling under the weather the day after the Orioles clinched the AL East title. James McCann filled in at catcher and went 0-for-2 with a walk and two strikeouts in Baltimore's sleepy 2-0 loss to Boston. Rotowire.com Today, 11:50 am

  • Takes seat Friday
    Bailey is out of the lineup Friday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Blake Sabol will catch and bat eighth for the Giants. Bailey has enjoyed some promising stretches this season, but the 24-year-old is slashing just .127/.172/.146 with 21 strikeouts in 58 plate appearances since the beginning of September. Rotowire.com Today, 10:34 am
  • Signs one-year extension
    The Rockies signed Blackmon to a one-year contract extension Friday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

    Advice: Blackmon had been scheduled to become a free agent this winter at age 37, but he'll stay home in Colorado for what will be his 14th major-league season. He was selected by the Rockies in the second round of the 2008 MLB Draft out of Georgia Tech and has tallied 1,688 career big-league hits, all in the purple and black. The new one-year deal carries a $13 million guarantee with another $2 million available in performance-based incentives, per Steve Adams of MLBTradeRumors.com. Rotowire.com Today, 10:28 am
  • Recalled from Round Rock
    The Rangers recalled Latz from Triple-A Round Rock on Friday.

    Advice: Latz will give Texas a fresh bullpen arm leading into the final weekend of the regular season. He's thrown 4.1 scoreless innings over two major-league appearances this year. Rotowire.com Today, 10:20 am
  • Lands on 15-day IL
    The Rangers placed Gray on the 15-day injured list Friday, retroactive to Sept. 28, with right lower forearm tightness.

    Advice: Gray made an early exit from his last start Monday against the Angels due to right wrist/forearm tightness and can now be ruled out for the remainder of the regular season. He could potentially return in the postseason if the Rangers are able to stage a deep run, but that all remains to be seen. The 31-year-old right-hander finishes with a 9-8 record, 4.12 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 142:54 K:BB in 29 starts covering 157.1 innings. Rotowire.com Today, 10:19 am
