David Ortiz leaves for family issue
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10:03 pm ET) Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz had to leave Sunday's game at Kansas City because of a family emergency, according to the Boston Herald. Ortiz went 0 for 3 with two strikeouts before being replaced by Christian Vazquez.

"He's fine. He got called away from this game," manager John Farrell said. "There was a family emergency that he had to attend to and he jumped on a flight late this afternoon."

Farrell added that Ortiz should rejoin the team Tuesday at Pittsburgh.


Michael Choice's big game ends early
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9:57 pm ET) Rangers outfielder Michael Choice, who has been getting regular at-bats with Shin-Soo Choo sidelined by bone spurs in his left elbow, broke out of a 1-for-15 slump Sunday against the Braves, going 2 for 3 with a double, a triple and three RBI. Unfortunately, he hobbled into second base on the double and had to be removed from the game in the fifth inning.

His status going forward is unknown. He'll have an MRI on Monday.


Miles Mikolas probably done for 2014
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9:51 pm ET) Rangers starting pitcher Miles Mikolas, who hasn't pitched since Aug. 25 because of right shoulder fatigue, felt more discomfort in his shoulder the last time he played catch and is likely out for the season, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Michael Wacha still thinks he can return
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9:49 pm ET) Cardinals starting pitcher Michael Wacha, who was scratched from Saturday's start because he didn't feel right, threw about 30 pitches in a bullpen session Sunday and felt great, according to Fox Sports Midwest. He still hopes to return to the rotation before season's end, but manager Mike Matheny isn't so sure.

"This is a young player where we had something going, missed a couple of months and all those are reasons for us to once again pause and just kind of take our time, make sure everything looks right before moving forward," Matheny said.

Wacha has made two starts in September after missing all of July and August with a stress fracture in his right shoulder.


Mark Reynolds delivers in rare start
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9:39 pm ET) Brewers first baseman Mark Reynolds, who hadn't started in five games, got a start at third base Sunday against the Reds and delivered a home run -- a solo shot in the eighth inning. He finished the game 1 for 2 with a walk, a strikeout and two runs scored.

Reynolds entered the game mired in a 4-for-44 (.091) slump, causing manager Ron Roenicke to split first base between rookie Matt Clark and usual catcher Jonathan Lucroy in recent days.

"We know he's a streaky guy; we know that he needs to be out there playing to get it back," Roenicke told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Saturday. "We're in a situation where we have to make some decisions and try to play the hottest guy. That's what I've been doing."


Matt Clark making an impact
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9:34 pm ET) After yielding the spot to catcher Jonathan Lucroy the previous two days, Brewers first baseman Matt Clark was back in the lineup Sunday against the Reds. The rookie went 1 for 5 with a three-run homer, his third in his last three games.

Clark, 27, spent last season in Japan before returning to hit .304 with 26 homers and a .924 OPS in 414 at-bats between Double- and Triple-A this year. Manager Ron Roenicke told MLB.com he'll continue to find at-bats for him as long as he continues to produce.

"That's why we brought him up here, was with the idea that if the matchups were good and he did well, I'd be able to put him back out there," Roenicke said prior to Sunday's game. "With him continuing to swing the bat well, he's going to play a little bit more."


Clint Coulter may not stay at catcher
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9:23 pm ET) According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Brewers catcher prospect Clint Coulter will get a look at third base and the outfield in the instructional league this fall after playing more games at designated hitter (64) than catcher (61) in 2014. He hit .287 with 22 home runs, a .410 on-base percentage and a .930 OPS for low Class A Wisconsin.

"Right now, I'm a catcher," Coulter said. "I'm comfortable wherever they stick me. I just want to get to the big leagues."


Odrisamer Despaigne's losing streak reaches four
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8:30 pm ET) Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne struggled yet again Sunday, in an 8-6 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Despaigne didn't get much help from the defense, as he allowed five runs -- three earned -- in 5 2/3 innings. He scattered six hits and three walks in the outing, while striking out two batters on 92 pitches.

Despaigne has allowed nine runs in 10 innings over his last two starts, raising his ERA to 3.63. He carries a six-start winless streak into his next outing, set for Friday against the Giants.  


Chris Young pitches well in defeat
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8:28 pm ET) Mariners pitcher Chris Young allowed two runs, both on solo homers, over six innings Sunday against the Athletics, but took the loss as Seattle fell 4-0. Young (12-8) allowed four hits and two walks while fanning five.

Young faces the Astros in Houston on Friday.


Trevor Cahill's struggles continue in no-decision
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8:24 pm ET) Diamondbacks pitcher Trevor Cahill struggled Saturday, but the offense bailed him out in an 8-6 win over the Padres.

Cahill lasted just four innings in the game, as the Padres jumped on him for four runs. He allowed five hits and a pair of walks, while striking out seven batters on 64 pitches before leaving the game.

Cahill has allowed 18 runs over his last four starts, as his ERA has risen to 5.38 and his record has tumbled to 3-10. He will try to end the slide when he takes on the Rockies Saturday in his next scheduled start.
