by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2015) A hand injury sustained Thursday on a hit-by-pitch has Nationals third baseman Yunel Escobar set to sit Friday night against Miami.

Anthony Rendon will assume his position with Trea Turner playing second.

Escobar had been on a roll before going down with nine hits in his last 19 at-bats to sweeten his slash line to .308/.367/.423.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The 34-year-old Kouzmanoff has not played since April 2014. He was off to a brilliant start with Texas when two back surgeries ended his season and perhaps his career.


Nationals 3B Yunel Escobar out of game after HPB on hand


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2015) Nationals third baseman Yunel Escobar has been removed from the game Thursday night against San Diego after getting hit in the hand by a pitch, per Comcast SportsNet.

He remained on the bases, but left when his team took the field in the bottom of the inning.

X-rays taken of Escobar's hand came back negative, and he is considered day-to-day for now.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2015) Slumping Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager will ride the pine Thursday against the host White Sox for the first time since June 18.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Harrison has slumped since his return from injury with two hits in 13 at-bats. Kang, however, has hit safely in six of his last seven starts in maintaining a fine slash line of .289/.364/.457.


Giants 3B Matt Duffy remains in lineup Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2015) Giants third baseman Matt Duffy has lost no time to a right ankle sprain that plagued him during the game Wednesday. He is in the lineup Thursday against the Cubs.

The team can ill-afford to lose Duffy, who has been among their most productive hitters. He just had an eight-game hitting streak snapped in which he batted .333 (11-for-33).


Angels plan to activate 3B David Freese on Monday in Oakland


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2015) Angels third baseman David Freese (finger) is scheduled to play third base Friday and Saturday on his rehab assignment with Triple-A Salt Lake, according to the Los Angeles Times. If all goes well, the plan is to activate Freese for Monday's series opener at Oakland.

Freese is batting .308 (4 for 13) with one home run, six RBI, two runs and two strikeouts through four games on his rehab assignment.


Giants' Matt Duffy is day to day with sprained right ankle


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2015) Giants third baseman Matt Duffy is day to day after spraining his right ankle during Wednesday's 4-2 win against the Cubs, according to MLB.com.

Duffy hurt himself during a first-inning pickoff attempt at first base. Surprisingly, Duffy remained in the game and even had a stolen base. Manager Bruce Bochy was already down a pair of position players to injury, so if Duffy left the game, catcher Buster Posey might have played third base.

Duffy underwent X-rays after the game, which showed no fracture. He is considered day to day.

He is batting .317 with one triple, one home run, seven doubles, 13 RBI, 14 runs, six walks, 15 strikeouts and three stolen bases in 24 August games.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/26/2015) Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Braves. Arenado hasn't had a day off since early July, so he is long due for a rest day.

Arenado is batting .268 with a home run and eight RBI over his last 10 games. Daniel Descalso will replace Arenado at the hot corner on Wednesday.

Angels' David Freese (finger) hoping to return next week


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/25/2015) Angels third baseman David Freese, who is working his way back from a broken finger, has started a rehab assignment with Triple-A Salt Lake City. Freese's rehab stint started on Sunday, and he has gone 1 for 5 thus far, serving as the designated hitter in both games.

Nationals' Denard Span, Yunel Escobar return to lineup Tuesday


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Mets 3B David Wright blasts off in first at-bat of dramatic return


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2015) Too bad Mets third baseman David Wright didn't make his comeback Monday at home. His dramatic entrance would have been far more appropriate closer to Broadway.

Wright slammed a home run in his first at-bat after returning from a four-month stint on the disabled list with a back injury. The blast was the first shot in another comeback attempt - that by his team that eventually succeeded in a dismantling of Philadelphia.

He was far from done. He singled and scored in the fourth and walked and scored in the sixth. He also committed two errors, but there was no room for the negative on the night of his return to action.


3B David Wright returns to Mets lineup, bats cleanup


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/24/2015) Third baseman David Wright isn't easing back into the lineup Monday in his first game since April -- the veteran is hitting in the No. 4 spot in the order for the Mets in his return from back problems that have nearly wiped out his whole season. 

Wright played in just eight games this season before being sidelined. He fared well in a rehab stint at the Class A level, picking up nine hits in 28 at-bats. 


Astros SS Jed Lowrie not concerned about latest thumb ailment


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2015) Astros shortstop Jed Lowrie left the game Sunday with a thumb contusion. But he assures those concerned that this thumb issue is not nearly as serious as the torn ligament that landed him on the disabled list for 82 games earlier in the year.

Lowrie added that he sustained it on an at-bat in the sixth inning and discovered it as he warmed up to start the seventh. His desparture was mostly precautionary..

"I just got jammed on the swing," he told MLB.com. "It got pretty swollen, but I told [A.J. Hinch] I could stay in there, and he said, 'Let's not take a chance.' I couldn't get anything on the throws, that's why A.J. said let's not take a chance."

Lowrie was scheduled for a day off Monday against the host Yankees. He could start again as early as Tuesday.


Mike Moustakas has four-RBI day for Royals


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2015) Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas went 3 for 5 with three extra-base hits in Sunday's win over Boston. 

Moustakas homered for the second time in three games and added two doubles. He drove in a season-high four runs on the game. 

Moustakas' eight total bases were the most since he also had eight in a four-hit game on May 15. 


3B Kris Bryant blasts two homers in Cubs' win


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/23/2015) Kris Bryant was an offensive force for the red-hot Cubs Sunday, crushing two home runs and driving in three runs in Chicago's 9-3 rout of the Braves. 

Bryant's two longballs gave him 19 on the season. He hit a 404-foot, two-run shot to right field in the first inning and then added a solo shot to center in the sixth. 

Bryant, like most of the Cubs, has been productive in August, with five homers and 14 RBIs to go along with 24 hits in the month. 


Collins: Mets 3B David Wright set to return Monday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2015) Terry Collins has confirmed what had been anticipated - Mets third baseman David Wright will come off the disabled list and play Monday against Philadelphia.

He has been sidelined for more than four months with a back injury.

Wright performed well in his rehab stint with Class A St. Lucie with nine hits in 28 at-bats and five runs scored.


Astros 3B Jed Lowrie leaves game with thumb injury


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/23/2015) Astros third baseman Jed Lowrie left Sunday's game in the seventh inning with what the team announced as a right thumb contusion

It is the same thumb that sidelined him from April 28 to July 30, so the team is taking no chances with the injury. Lowrie was 0-for-3 before leaving the game. 


Angels 3B Taylor Featherston to begin rehab assignment


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

3B Aramis Ramirez back in familiar spot for Pirates


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/23/2015) After a day off, Aramis Ramirez returns to third base and the cleanup spot for the Pirates in their series finale with the Giants.

3B Danny Valencia (hamstring) back in lineup for Athletics


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/23/2015) Athletics third baseman Danny Valencia is back in the lineup and hitting cleanup Sunday despite a nagging hamstring injury, per MLB.com.
