Jurickson Profar's shoulder still not feeling right


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2:27 pm ET) Rangers infielder Jurickson Profar, who has spent all of 2014 rehabbing a torn muscle in the back of his armpit, won't play in the Arizona Fall League as hoped, according to the Dallas Morning News, and will instead visit with sports medicine specialists across the country to try and find a resolution to an injury that should have healed long ago.

"He's worked extremely hard, but he hasn't bounced back," general manager Jon Daniels said. "We need to get him right, so we are gathering additional opinions from a number of the best doctors out there. It's been a frustrating case."

Profar was named the top prospect according to Baseball America prior to 2013. His availability for the start of 2015 is at this point unknown.


Jason Kipnis to return from two-game absence


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/21/2014) Jason Kipnis was in the Indians' starting lineup as the team's designated hitter for Sunday's game at the Twins. He missed the last two games due to a hamstring injury.

Jason Kipnis, Zach Walters remain sidelined Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/20/2014) Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis and outfielder Zach Walters are not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Twins.

Kipnis left Thursday's game with a hamstring injury, but manager Terry Francona expressed optimism that he would be able to return this weekend. Walters has been dealing with an intercostal strain and may be able to pinch hit if needed.


Robinson Cano delivers three-hit performance Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/20/2014) Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano went 3 for 5 with an RBI in his team's 10-5 win over the Astros Friday.

While his power is down from his recent seasons in New York, Cano continues to get it done at the plate. If he can finish the season with his current .321 batting average or better, it'll represent his best mark since his second major-league season in 2006. Cano has hit .321/.387/.465 with 14 home runs, 78 RBI and a career-high 10 stolen bases in 564 at-bats.


Ben Zobrist struggling to produce in September


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/20/2014) Rays infielder Ben Zobrist has struggled at the plate in September, hitting just .236/.313/.292 with one home run and three RBI in 72 at-bats.

Zobrist posted a .927 OPS in July and delivered solid production in August despite failing to record a home run during the month. His production has fallen off this month, with only two of his 11 hits going for extra bases. For the season, Zobrist has hit .268/.352/.393 with 10 home runs, 47 RBI and nine stolen bases in 545 at-bats.


Indians optimistic Jason Kipnis returns this weekend


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/20/2014) Indians manager Terry Francona is optimistic that second baseman Jason Kipnis will return to action this weekend, MLB.com reports.

Kipnis is day-to-day with a hamstring injury after exiting Thursday's game. However, he felt much better by the time he got to the ballpark Friday. "He showed up and actually exhibited pretty good strength," Francona said Friday before the game. "He's sore enough where we're not going to play him today. We would see about tomorrow, but I think we're more in that range, as opposed to four or five days. I think when you say 'day to day,' we really are legitimately day to day."


Logan Forsythe slugs sixth home run Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/20/2014) Rays second baseman Logan Forsythe went 2 for 3 with a double, a home run and three RBI in his team's 4-3 defeat against the White Sox.

Unfortunately, that was all the offense they'd find, leading to a loss after the White Sox scored four times in the fifth inning. Forsythe has hit .231/.296/.343 with six home runs, 26 RBI and two stolen bases in 286 at-bats.


Jason Kipnis remains out Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Howie Kendrick finally slows down after torrid stretch


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
