Asdrubal Cabrera slugs 13th home run Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) Nationals second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera went 1 for 3 with a walk and a solo home run in his team's 6-4 win over the Dodgers Monday.

Cabrera hit one of the four home runs served up by Dodgers starter Roberto Hernandez on the night, giving the second baseman four home runs since joining the Nationals at the July 31 trading deadline. He has hit .245/.312/.397 with 13 home runs, 52 RBI and seven stolen bases in 473 at-bats.


Marco Scutaro, Matt Cain transferred to 60-day DL


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) Giants second baseman Marco Scutaro and Matt Cain were transferred to the 60-day disabled list after Monday's loss. The moves clear two 40-man roster spots to use on the team's expanded September roster.

Kolten Wong slugs pinch-hit home run Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong slugged a two-run pinch-hit home run in Monday's 5-4 win over the Pirates.

Wong was cleared of a concussion before the game, but manager Mike Matheny didn't immediately stick him back in the lineup. That left Wong the opportunity to provide the go-ahead run in the seventh inning, and the bullpen locked down the final six outs to hand the Cardinals a win.

"My neck was killing me today," Wong told MLB.com after the game. "But there comes certain points in time when you have to man up. Today was definitely one of those days where I told myself I just needed to man up and put a good at-bat together."

Wong has hit .252/.293/.404 with 11 home runs, 37 RBI and 19 stolen bases in 337 at-bats.


Dilson Herrera slugs first major-league home run Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

In addition, the team activated pitcher Chris Perez from the disabled list. Perez has been out since Aug. 3 while nursing an ankle injury.

Kolten Wong showing no signs of concussion


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2014) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong underwent a series of tests that ruled out a possible concussion, MLB.com reports. Wong hits his head awkwardly on the turf while in pursuit of a pop fly in the eighth inning against the Cubs. His status remains up in the air for Monday's home against Pittsburgh.

"He went through a bunch of tests already," manager Mike Matheny said. "The doctors got to him. There were no signs of concussion. We've had a couple different doctors look at him already. I'm sure tomorrow he'll be a little sore. We'll probably bring the doctors back in tomorrow and re-evaluate. We got good news on the initial report."

Kolten Wong exits game after hard fall on the turf


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2014) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong belted his 10th home run of the season but had to leave Sunday's game against the Cubs with an apparent head injury.

Joe Panik racks up four hits in blowout win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2014) Giants shortstop Joe Panik snapped out of a slump Friday, with a four-hit game in a 13-2 win over the Brewers.

Panik, who had just three hits in his previous five games, went 4 for 6 Friday. He had one double and three singles, while scoring two runs in the win. He raised his season average to .312 with the performance. 


Dilson Herrera interesting, but raw


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/29/2014) Apparently, the Mets aren't just looking to trudge their way through the season's final month. Instead of turning to some journeyman type to fill in for Daniel Murphy, who went on the DL Friday with a calf injury, they reached all the way down to Double-A and pulled up 20-year-old Dilson Herrera, who hadn't played a single game above low Class A prior to this year.

True, the Mets also acquired hard-throwing reliever and potential closer candidate Vic Black in the deal that sent Marlon Byrd to the Pirates last August, but Herrera may have been the real prize. A toolsy type who has also played some shortstop, he's taken a big step forward in the minors this season, batting .323 with 13 home runs, 23 steals and an .858 OPS. And though he's split his at-bats almost evenly between two stops, his numbers only improved following his promotion to Double-A Binghamton, where he's hit .340 with a .967 OPS.

Does that mean he's ready to play in the big leagues? That's probably a stretch. Rougned Odor took a similar step forward last year -- and with a better pedigree to begin with -- and he's struggled to transition to the big leagues at at 20.

Still, in NL-only and long-term keeper leagues, Herrera's upside makes him worth a flier.


'Significant issue' could keep Daniel Murphy out a while


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2014) Mets infielder Daniel Murphy may end up missing much of the remainder of the season due to his calf injury, manager Terry Collins told ESPN.com Friday.

"I'll tell you, Murph's down," Collins said. "It's not about who is playing second base. He had some pretty big goals set, and rightfully so, that he was chasing. Big goals. And now we're looking at quite a lengthy DL stint to where how much is going to be left at the end of the year?"

Murphy had an MRI taken on the calf, and manager Sandy Alderson also noted it is a 'significant issue,' though the exact timetable for his potential return to the lineup. The Mets have just 28 games remaining on the schedule, as of Friday.

Brandon Phillips shows sign of life with two-RBI game


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips contributed to a 7-2 win over the Cubs Thursday, by driving in two runs.

Phillips had just one hit, but that was enough as he clubbed a two-run double in the fourth inning. He finished the game 1 for 4 before he was lifted for a pinch-hitter late.

Phillips has struggled since returning from the disabled list in mid-August, hitting just .205 with four RBI and no home runs in 10 games.
