Hyun-Jin Ryu tosses another bullpen session Friday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6:35 pm ET) Dodgers pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu tossed another bullpen session Friday, according to MLB.com.

Ryu has been sidelined with a glute injury since August 13. He also threw from the bullpen mound Thursday. Ryu has a 3.28 ERA over 137 1/3 innings.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6:31 pm ET) Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke played catch on flat ground Friday, according to MLB.com.

Greinke was pushed back in the rotation in order to rest his elbow. He's slated to return to the mound Saturday against the Mets. Greinke has a 2.75 ERA over 157 1/3 innings. 


Manny Machado to have season-ending knee surgery
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6:28 pm ET) Orioles third baseman Manny Machado is expected to have season-ending knee surgery, according to Yahoo!

Machado has been out since August 11 due to a knee sprain. He'll have surgery on his right knee next week, and will likely be lost for the season. Machado ruptured a ligament in his left knee last season. He's hit .278/.324/.431 over 327 at-bats. 


Jump on the Matt Shoemaker bandwagon
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6:27 pm ET) I'm tired of playing the Matt Shoemaker skeptic. If nine starts aren't enough to tell us anything -- maybe not everything, but something -- then we might as well stop commenting on players midseason. Since that's not going to happen, I'm looking at what Shoemaker has done in his last nine -- a 2.54 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 8.9 strikeouts per nine innings -- and jumping on the bandwagon before it's too late.

So what if he was terrible in the minors? (And yes, he was terrible, getting stuck there until age 27 thanks to a 4.52 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in seven seasons.) So was Dallas Keuchel, and it didn't stop us from swimming to him like sharks to chum when he looked good in April and May. And for the most part, he's kept it up.

In Shoemaker's case, there were a few standout years in there -- most notably 2011, when he had a 3.15 ERA and 1.07 WHIP. You know what was so special about that year? It was the only one after 2009 when he spent any time anywhere other than the heavy-hitting California and Pacific Coast leagues. In 23 starts at Double-A Arkansas that year, he had a 2.48 ERA.

Of course, that doesn't explain why Shoemaker is so much more of a strikeout pitcher in the majors, and like Keuchel, I think he'll regress in that area a bit. But by now, I think he's proven his worth to Fantasy owners.


Scott Downs to throw live batting practice soon
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6:02 pm ET) Royals pitcher Scott Downs is slated to throw live batting practice soon, according to the Kansas City Star

Downs has been sidelined since August 2 due to a neck injury. The Royals will return to Kansas City August 25, so that would be the earliest Downs would throw the session. He's posted a 5.29 ERA over 34 innings. 


Jose Molina dealing with knee soreness
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5:59 pm ET) Rays catcher Jose Molina is dealing with knee soreness, according to the Tampa Tribune.

Molina has sat for four games due to the issue. It's not serious, and Molina is expected to return to action Saturday. He's hitting .186 over 194 at-bats. 


Justin Verlander to start Saturday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5:57 pm ET) Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander will start Game 2 of the team's Saturday doubleheader, according to the Detroit Free Press

Verlander has been sidelined since August 11 due to a shoulder injury. Verlander has been able to get through his bullpen sessions without any issues, and is ready to make his return. He has a 4.76 ERA over 158 2/3 innings. 


Javy Guerra should be activated Saturday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5:42 pm ET) White Sox reliever Javy Guerra should be activated Saturday, according to the Chicago Sun-Times

Guerra spent some time on the bereavement list, but is ready to return. He's posted a 3.00 ERA over 33 innings. 


Kyle Lohse to rejoin rotation Monday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5:39 pm ET) Brewers pitcher Kyle Lohse will rejoin the club's rotation Monday, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Lohse had his last start skipped due to an ankle injury. He'll take on the Padres Monday. Lohse has a 3.49 ERA over 159 2/3 innings. 


Nelson Cruz homers again vs. Cubs, establishes new career-high
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5:37 pm ET) Orioles outfielder Nelson Cruz had just one hit Friday against the Cubs, but he made it count as he set a new career-high in home runs in a 4-1 loss.

Cruz clubbed a solo homer in the seventh inning for the team's only run of the game, while finishing the game 1 for 4 overall. It was his second game in a row with a home run, giving him 34 for the season.

Cruz leads the American League with his 34 home runs, while ranking fourth in RBI with 87 in 124 games. He is hitting .258/.326/.520 in 473 at-bats overall.
