Carlos Frias blasted for eight runs in first inning Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:16 pm ET) Dodgers pitcher Carlos Frias had a day to forget in Wednesday's loss, giving up eight earned runs on 10 hits in two-thirds of an inning in his team's 16-2 defeat against the Rockies.

Frias (0-1) had given up 11 earned runs in 25 1/3 innings over 11 appearances (one start) coming into Wednesday, but the first seven batters of the game recorded hits against the starter, including a three-run home run. He was able to record outs on a caught stealing and a bunt into a fielder's choice, but three more singles got him pulled from the game in the first inning. Frias owns a 6.58 ERA and 18:4 K:BB ratio in 26 innings. He isn't currently scheduled to start again.


Glen Perkins out, Jared Burton in as closer Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:00 pm ET) Twins closer Glen Perkins will at least be shut down Wednesday, if not for the year, with neck and shoulder injuries, per MLB.com. The results of an exam by doctors has yet to be revealed. Jared Burton will serve as the closer against Detroit on Wednesday and should remain in that role while Perkins is down.

Report: Ryan Zimmerman could be back in action Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:49 pm ET) Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman could return to the lineup as early as Saturday in Miami, per the Washington Post.

Zimmerman has been recovering from a hamstring injury that has prevented him from playing since July 22. He has had just 195 at-bats in 2014.


Manager: Salvador Perez too anxious at plate
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:41 pm ET) Ned Yost is blaming anxiousness rather than fatigue for the slump of Royals catcher Salvador Perez. He told the Kansas City Star that Perez is trying too hard with a playoff spot on the line.

Perez has just five hits in his last 45 at-bats and has been hitless in seven of his last 11 games. His .290 on-base percentage is at its lowest point since April 23. He has a dozen strikeouts in the last 10 games.


Carlos Beltran out of lineup Wednesday due to family issue
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:35 pm ET) Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran is not in the lineup Wednesday as he deals with a family issue, MLB.com reports.

The Yankees finish up a road trip Wednesday and will join Beltran in New York Thursday, though it's unknown if he'll be available to play. Manager Joe Girardi indicated that Beltran can take as much time as he needs to attend to the matter.


Marlins confirm end of season for Giancarlo Stanton
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:33 pm ET) The Marlins have made official what was expected - slugger Giancarlo Stanton is out for the season after taking a pitch to the head against Milwaukee on Thursday.

Stanton finishes the season with a stat line of .288/.395/.555. His 37 home runs still leads the National League and will likely continue to the rest of the way.


Stephen Vogt still out of lineup Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:30 pm ET) Athletics infielder Stephen Vogt did not return to the starting lineup Wednesday against the Rangers. He hasn't played in two weeks due to an ankle injury.

Alex Avila remains out of lineup Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:27 pm ET) Tigers catcher Alex Avila is out of the starting lineup Wednesday as he continues to deal with post-concussion symptoms. Manager Brad Ausmus said Monday that Avila could have to miss a week or more while recovering.

Nick Castellanos back in lineup Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:25 pm ET) Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Twins.

The third baseman was a late scratch Tuesday due to soreness in his left foot, but the issue appears to have been minor. Castellanos has hit .266/.313/.405 with 10 home runs and 60 RBI in 496 at-bats.


Ryan Raburn, Zach Walters remain sidelined Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:23 pm ET) Indians outfielders Ryan Raburn (knee) and Zach Walters (intercostal) remain out of the lineup Wednesday.

Raburn is expected to undergo an MRI on his injured knee Wednesday. An MRI on Walters' ribcage revealed no structural damage. Both players are questionable to make it back before the end of the regular season.
