by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

He returned to action Tuesday but left the ballpark early to visit a chiropractor. Hamilton described it as "a sharp, stabbing pain" near his chest and right rib cage, underneath his armpit, per MLB.com. 

He was not in the starting lineup Thursday against Seattle.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Glen Perkins injuries not as serious as feared


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:48 pm ET) A bout with dizziness that prevented Blue Jays catcher Dioner Navarro from playing Wednesday has also kept him out of the lineup Thursday night against the Yankees. Josh Thole is set to start instead.

Navarro owns a stat line of .282/.324/.410.


Paul Konerko could be ready to return to plate this weekend


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:59 pm ET) White Sox retiring designated hitter Paul Konerko is slated to return this weekend in Tampa Bay from a fractured hand that has kept him out since Sept. 2. But Robin Ventura doesn't want to rush him.

"I think during the weekend we'll be able to give him hopefully a couple of at-bats," Ventura told MLB.com. "If he's up for it, he can probably DH one of those games."

Konerko could play significantly when the team returns home as he concludes his farewell season.


Stephen Vogt still a no-go Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:50 pm ET) Athletics first baseman Stephen Vogt remains out of the lineup for the Thursday game against visiting Texas. He has been dealing with an ankle issue that has prevented him from playing for two weeks aside from one at-bat Wednesday.

Matt Shoemaker: I could be out 'for a week or two'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:32 pm ET) The rib cage injury to Angels impressive right-hander Matt Shoemaker has become a concern for the team, according to MLB.com, despite his proclamation Wednesday that it was feeling better. He added that it was 'a little sore' after undergoing an MRI that revealed a mild oblique strain. Shoeamaker is uncertain when he will return - he is set to miss his Saturday start.

"There is no time frame," he said. "Literally they said in two or three days you can feel good or it could be a week or two. We'll just go by feel. Once it stops feeling sore, they want to get into some activity just to test it and rehab it. I want to get into everything quick, but they're just being smart."

Shoemaker has won his last seven decisions. He has allowed just seven earned runs in his last 48 2/3 innings pitched.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

'Increasingly likely' Rangers part ways with Alex Rios


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Rangers outfielder Alex Rios "most likely" won't be back with the team next season, MLB.com reports.

The Rangers hold a $14-million option on Rios for 2015, but "it appears increasingly likely" the team will instead pay the $1-million buyout. Shin-Soo Choo is expected to shift to Rios' position next season.

"I'm just waiting to see what will happen," Rios said. "The team has to make the decision. You don't know if they are going to try going the free-agent route or go with a farm product. It's tough to tell."

Rios is questionable to play again this season due to a thumb injury.


Lisalverto Bonilla to start Friday with Scott Baker still out


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Anibal Sanchez feels good Wednesday, set for bullpen Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez felt good Wednesday after throwing a bullpen session the prior day, MLive.com reports. He's set to throw another session Thursday.

"We've just got to wait and see what happens," manager Brad Ausmus said. "He's got a bullpen tomorrow. If he comes out of that all right, we'll have to schedule a simulated game."

The simulated game, which could come as early as Sunday morning, could be the precursor to getting Sanchez on the mound in a game before the season is over. He could start the team's penultimate game of the season next weekend if the Tigers were to have the division title wrapped up, though he would likely pitch just a few innings.


Glen Perkins to undergo MRI Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Report: Ryan Raburn to undergo knee surgery


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Report: Twins contemplating shutting down Glen Perkins


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) The Twins could be considering shutting down closer Glen Perkins for the season, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Ron Gardenhire has admitted he's worried about the struggling veteran left-hander.

"Yes, I'm concerned," he said about Perkins' recent drop in velocity. "We're going to talk with him (Wednesday). There's a lot of frustration involved right now. We're going to definitely talk with him and see where we're at and see how he's feeling because he just came off that (neck/shoulder) thing and he's had a couple outings where we think the velocity is down. We just want him to be honest with us and not hurt himself."

Perkins has blown three of his last five save opportunities, including Tuesday night, when he surrendered a three-run homer to Detroit slugger J.D. Martinez in the ninth inning. He has allowed five homers in his last eight appearances and at least one hit in each of his last nine.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Astros right-hander Brad Peacock, who lost his Monday start to back soreness, has returned to the rotation, thanks to a pain-free bullpen session Tuesday. He is set to start Friday night against Seattle, the Houston Chronicle has reported.

The move pushes ace lefty Dallas Keuchel back to Saturday, giving him an extra day of rest.


Roenis Elias exits game with left elbow stiffness


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Mariners pitcher Roenis Elias was removed from Tuesday's start against the Angels for precautionary reasons due to left elbow stiffness, the team announced.

Elias gave up two earned runs on five hits and one walk in three-plus innings and struck out one before having to come out of the game. He's scheduled to pitch again Sunday against the Astros, but his availability is obviously tied to the status of his elbow.
