Red Sox 1B Hanley Ramirez out again Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:13 pm ET) Red Sox outfielder-turned-first baseman Hanley Ramirez is again absent from the lineup Friday against Philadelphia.

A shoulder injury has prevented Ramirez from playing since Aug. 26.

His latest issue worsens an already disappointing season for Ramirez, who owns a career-low .291 on-base percentage.


Astros activate RF George Springer after two-month absence


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:10 pm ET) As anticipated, the Astros have announced the activation of slugger George Springer from the disabled list. He had been sidelined for more than two months with a fractured wrist.

Springer is expected to be in the lineup Friday night against Minnesota. He returns with a slash line of .264/.365/.457 and 13 homers in 276 at-bats.

He was slumping before going down. Springer will return on a 4-for-33 slide.


Indians stating that SP Corey Kluber will pitch again in 2015


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:31 pm ET) The Indians are not taking a pessimistic view of the hamstring injury that has sidelined ace Corey Kluber. They are claiming that Kluber will pitch again this season despite reports that he could be out for the year, according to Associated Press.

Kluber injured his hamstring running in the outfield during the team's series in Toronto earlier in the week.


Hamstring injury could end season for Indians SP Corey Kluber


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:16 pm ET) Indians ace and reigning American League Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber could lose the rest of the season to a hamstring injury, the Cleveland Plain Dealer has reported.

Kluber, who was scheduled to start Friday night in Detroit, sustained the injury while running in the outfield during the just-completed series in Toronto. He will miss at least one week, but could be done for the year.

The right-hander has been a victim of poor run support in 2015, but has also been a bit more inconsistent than he was in his breakthrough 2014 campaign. If he is indeed finished, he will end the year with an 8-13 record and a 3.41 ERA that is nearly a point higher than what he registered last season.


Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira finally lands on DL with leg injury


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:24 am ET) The Yankees could wait no longer for slugging first baseman Mark Teixeira to get healthy. They have announced that they have placed him on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Aug. 27.

A leg injury has prevented Teixeira from playing for more than a week and might have contributed to an 0-for-11 skid before he was removed from the lineup.

Teixeira had been enjoying a renaiassance year. He compiled a slash line of .255/.357/.548 with 31 home runs and 79 RBI in just 392 at-bats.


Indians targeting a return next week for SP Carlos Carrasco


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:11 am ET) Indians starter Carlos Carrasco is slated to throw a bullpen session Friday in Detroit. He has been on the disabled list with an ailing shoulder, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

If all goes well, he could be activated to start at some point next week against the White Sox.

Carrasco was arguably the team's hottest pitcher before going down. He had five consecutive quality starts during which he allowed only six runs in 39 2/3 innings. He has 173 strikeouts in 158 innings on the year.


Ausmus: Tigers SS Jose Iglesias (finger) could be out for a while


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:35 am ET) Brad Ausmus has declared that Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias, who injured his right middle finger on a hit-by-pitch Thursday, will miss "more than a couple days," per MLive.com. It remains to be seen if he's placed on the disabled list.

Iglesias is on a four-game hitting streak and has been steady for Detroit this season in compiling a slash line of .300/.347/.370.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias was removed from the game Thursday in Kansas City after taking a pitch to his right middle finger as he attempted to bunt in the third inning, per MLB.com. He was diagnosed with a contusion on the finger.

Report: Orioles set to place SP Miguel Gonzalez on DL Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) The Orioles are planning to place struggling starter Miguel Gonzalez on the disabled list Friday, according to MASNsports.com.

Gonzalez, who is dealing with elbow inflammation and right shoulder pain, has been a mess on the mound of late. He has surrendered 29 runs over his last 35 innings and has dropped his last five decisions. His ERA has risen to a season-worst 4.85.


Report: SP Mike Wright to rejoin Orioles on Thursday night


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) Pitcher Mike Wright is set to join the Orioles in Toronto on Thursday night, per the Virginian-Pilot.

Wright has been sidelined with an oblique injury for five weeks and has recently completed a rehab stint at Triple-A Norfolk. He is a candidate to start Saturday in Toronto, according to MASNsports.com.

The right-hander owns a 2-3 record and 4.99 ERA in seven big league outings, including six starts.


Rangers' Kyle Blanks to undergo surgery on both feet


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) Rangers infielder Kyle Blanks will miss the rest of the season due to surgery on both of his feet, the team announced Thursday.

Blanks will have arthroscopic surgery on his right foot for a chronic condition Friday. He will then have the same surgery on his left foot in 4-6 weeks.


Royals 3B Mike Moustakas misses third straight start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas missed a third straight start Thursday against the Tigers due to a hamstring injury.

Moustakas is batting .333 (23 for 69) with five home runs, nine doubles, 19 RBI, 10 runs, nine walks and seven strikeouts in his last 19 games.


Twins' Perkins won't go on road trip; Jepsen to close in his absence


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) Twins closer Glen Perkins will not go on the team's nine-game road trip, which begins Friday at Houston, due to his lingering back injury. The Twins don't return home until Sept. 14 vs. Detroit.

"I honestly don't know what happened. I pitched Tuesday. That day I would have said I felt 90-95 percent," Perkins said, per 1500ESPN.com. "Everything was good, everything was fine, I pitched, I didn't think anything of it after the game. Then when I woke up [Wednesday], I couldn't get out of bed. It completely blindsided me.

"I don't feel any better today [Thursday]. It's going to take a little bit more time this time."

Manager Paul Molitor said Kevin Jepsen will fill-in as closer in Perkins' absence.

"It's a tough thing. Because you can't really inject it, it's not an injury that needs that type of attention," Molitor said of Perkins' injury. "There's not really anything you can do other than to try to find ways to calm it down and do what you can to see if you can get him back out there.

"There's a chance, at least in my mind, that this could be something that lingers. Might have some good days, some bad days here on out."


Twins SP Phil Hughes days away from throwing simulated game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) Twins starting pitcher Phil Hughes (back) threw a bullpen session Thursday without any issues, according to MLB.com. He will throw another bullpen session Sunday before throwing a simulated game during a three-game series in Kansas City, which starts Monday.

Twins 3B Miguel Sano gets chance to rest hamstring injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) Twins third baseman Miguel Sano was held out of the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the White Sox. Sano is trying to play through a hamstring injury, and he was rested Thursday since it was a day game after a night game.

"It's a tough thing right now with him. I know he wants to play, and staying in the lineup from here on out is the most important part of the equation," manager Paul Molitor said, per MLB.com. "A day game following a night game heading into Houston isn't going to make a huge difference. I can't tell you exactly that. There's no way to measure how much 40 hours might help."

The hamstring injury didn't seem to bother Sano on Wednesday, as he homered for a third straight game. The rookie third baseman has been on a nice power surge, homering eight times in his last 14 games and slugging .833 in that span.

Since Aug. 5, Sano has a .323/.402/.742/1.144 slash line in his last 25 games. He has six doubles, 11 home runs and 28 RBI in that span.


Twins closer Glen Perkins is day to day again due to back injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2015) Twins closer Glen Perkins' back problems flared up again Wednesday, which is why manager Paul Molitor turned to Kevin Jepsen to finish off a 3-0 win against the White Sox.

Perkins, who has been dealing with the back issue for a few weeks, picked up his first save Tuesday since Aug. 16. But after throwing 19 pitches, Perkins felt sore Wednesday. When he went to play catch, his back started to spasm and the left-hander was sent for an MRI.

"There's no bulging disc, no serious issue that we have to look at other than the fact that we've got to keep this thing from continuing to flare up," Molitor said, per MLB.com. "I think right now there's a good chance he might stay back and spend some time here with our guys. [We'll] try to get him back and see if we can get him out on the trip at some point."


Twins RP Kevin Jepsen shuts down White Sox for 10th save


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) The continued uncertainty over the health and performance of veteran Twins closer Glen Perkins resulted in teammate Kevin Jepsen serving as closer Wednesday night against the White Sox. And he was up to the task.

Jepsen retired the side in order in the ninth for his 10th save of the season. He fanned Jose Abreu along the way.


Mariners DH Nelson Cruz leaves game with quad injury


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(9/2/2015) Mariners designated hitter Nelson Cruz left Wednesday's game against the Astros with a strained right quad, according to The News Tribune.

Cruz went 1 for 4 with a single before leaving the game.


Mariners rehabbing P James Paxton removed from Triple-A start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) Mariners left-hander James Paxton was considered to be one healthy rehab start away from returning to the big-league mound. But a monkey wrench might have been thrown into those plans.

Paxton was removed in the fourth inning of his outing Wednesday for Triple-A Tacoma. He left the mound with the trainer looking at a finger on his pitching hand. He had been sidelined for more than three months with a finger injury.

It remains to be seen if what appears to be a setback will prevent him from joining the Mariners in the near future.


Shelved Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman lights-out in rehab start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) The hope that Marcus Stroman can return to full health in time to pitch for the Blue Jays this season was strengthened by his rehab effort Wednesday for Class A Lansing.

Stroman tossed 4 2/3 innings of no-hit ball against Great Lakes. He walked one, fanned seven, and threw 44 of his 69 pitches for strikes.

The right-hander has been sidelined all year after undergoing knee surgery.


Twins' Miguel Sano hopes to play through hamstring issue


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) After undergoing an MRI on his hamstring Wednesday, Twins designated hitter Miguel Sano hopes to play through the hamstring issue, reports MLB.com.

The hamstring strain caused him to miss last Friday's contest, but he is in Wednesday's lineup.

"I'm trying to not run too hard or too fast," Sano said. "I can feel it when I'm on base."


Lovullo: Red Sox P Clay Buchholz could still pitch this year


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) Red Sox interim manager Torey Lovullo has the following message for President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski in regard to the latter stating that pitcher Clay Buchholz is done for the year:

Not so fast.

Lovullo would like to see Buchholz back on the mound by the end of the season, even if it's for one appearance. Buchholz has received clearance to resume throwing after losing the last seven weeks to a strained right flexor. He made 24 tosses from 75 feet Wednesday.

"He's reported that he's feeling very, very good," Lovullo told MLB.com. "We're definitely monitoring that. He's really encouraged by where he's at and how he's feeling. ... It would be great if he could throw one inning just to see where he's at from a mental standpoint, just to give him some confidence moving into the offseason. That's all contingent on him feeling good."

If Buchholz is done for the season, he will end it at 7-7 with a strong 3.26 ERA.
