Player News
Manager: Salvador Perez too anxious at plate
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:41 pm ET) Ned Yost is blaming anxiousness rather than fatigue for the slump of Royals catcher Salvador Perez. He told the Kansas City Star that Perez is trying too hard with a playoff spot on the line.

Perez has just five hits in his last 45 at-bats and has been hitless in seven of his last 11 games. His .290 on-base percentage is at its lowest point since April 23. He has a dozen strikeouts in the last 10 games.


Carlos Beltran out of lineup Wednesday due to family issue
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:35 pm ET) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran is not in the lineup Wednesday as he deals with a family issue, MLB.com reports.

The Yankees finish up a road trip Wednesday and will join Beltran in New York Thursday, though it's unknown if he'll be available to play. Manager Joe Girardi indicated that Beltran can take as much time as he needs to attend to the matter.


Marlins confirm end of season for Giancarlo Stanton
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:33 pm ET) The Marlins have made official what was expected - slugger Giancarlo Stanton is out for the season after taking a pitch to the head against Milwaukee on Thursday.

Stanton finishes the season with a stat line of .288/.395/.555. His 37 home runs still leads the National League and will likely continue to the rest of the way.


Stephen Vogt still out of lineup Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:30 pm ET) Athletics infielder Stephen Vogt did not return to the starting lineup Wednesday against the Rangers. He hasn't played in two weeks due to an ankle injury.

Alex Avila remains out of lineup Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:27 pm ET) Tigers catcher Alex Avila is out of the starting lineup Wednesday as he continues to deal with post-concussion symptoms. Manager Brad Ausmus said Monday that Avila could have to miss a week or more while recovering.

Nick Castellanos back in lineup Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:25 pm ET) Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Twins.

The third baseman was a late scratch Tuesday due to soreness in his left foot, but the issue appears to have been minor. Castellanos has hit .266/.313/.405 with 10 home runs and 60 RBI in 496 at-bats.


Ryan Raburn, Zach Walters remain sidelined Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:23 pm ET) Indians outfielders Ryan Raburn (knee) and Zach Walters (intercostal) remain out of the lineup Wednesday.

Raburn is expected to undergo an MRI on his injured knee Wednesday. An MRI on Walters' ribcage revealed no structural damage. Both players are questionable to make it back before the end of the regular season.


Brandon Moss set to sit against left-hander Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:23 pm ET) A matchup against Texas left-hander Derek Holland has Athletics first baseman Brandon Moss absent from the Wednesday lineup.

Moss has homered in each of his last two games and owns a .271/.361/.435 stat line this season against southpaws.


Paul Konerko remains out Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:20 pm ET) White Sox designated hitter Paul Konerko remains out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Royals. Konerko said a few days ago that he was aiming to return from a fractured hand this week, but he still has yet to play since Sept. 2.


Kolten Wong benched Wednesday against Brewers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:14 pm ET) Slumping second baseman Kolten Wong is out of the lineup for the Cardinals on Wednesday against visiting Milwaukee. Daniel Descalso is set to start instead.

Wong is 1 for 11 in his last four games after a six-game hitting streak.
