Yoenis Cespedes leaves early due to personal matter
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8:27 pm ET) Red Sox outfielder Yoenis Cespedes left Thursday's game due to a personal matter.

Cespedes left in the top of the fourth inning. He was replaced by Will Middlebrooks. Cespedes struck out in his only at-bat of the game. 


Chris Perez likely to be activated when rosters expand
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8:19 pm ET) Dodgers reliever Chris Perez is likely to be activated once rosters expand, according to SBNation.

Perez will likely throw three more times in the minors before making his return. He's posted a 5.03 ERA over 39 1/3 innings. 


Hanley Ramirez looking at Sunday return
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7:34 pm ET) Dodgers infielder Hanley Ramirez is looking at a Sunday return, according to the Los Angeles Times

Ramirez has been sidelined since August 8 due to an oblique injury. Manager Don Mattingly said he expects Ramirez to be good to go Sunday. Ramirez has hit .277/.367/.455 over 354 at-bats. 


Joaquin Benoit believes he'll avoid the disabled list
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7:31 pm ET) Padres reliever Joaquin Benoit believes he'll avoid a stint on the disabled list, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Benoit was able to throw a bullpen session prior to Thursday's game. He said the session went well, and doesn't think he'll need to spend time on the DL. Benoit has a 1.64 ERA over 49 1/3 innings. 


Garrett Richards potentially still worth keeping
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7:30 pm ET) What a sad day for Garrett Richards and his Fantasy owners. What an unfortunate end to a brilliant season that probably hasn't gotten the pub it deserved.

He was the ace for the best team in baseball at the time of his injury. And because his breakthrough was so unexpected, he was a waiver claim in most Fantasy leagues. With that kind of production at that low of a cost -- and from a dual-eligible pitcher, no less -- you could argue Richards was the most valuable player in Fantasy for the 5 1/2 months he was healthy.

But now, he's not -- and because an injury no one would have expected. We've all learned to brace ourselves for the next torn up elbow, but not knee -- not for a pitcher, anyway -- which means we don't really know what comes next. The timetable for Richards is 6-9 months, which is an extremely wide range. It gives him some hope of returning by opening day but also allows for him to miss up to half the season.

My guess he misses some time -- enough to diminish his keeper value in a league where you keep just a handful of players, and all on equal terms. But if you keep as many as one-third of your players, and you keep them relative to what they cost you, again, given the price tag for Richards coming into the year, I'd hold on to him.


Oliver Perez hit with the loss Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7:29 pm ET) Diamondbacks pitcher Oliver Perez was hit with a loss Thursday against the Nationals.

Perez entered a tie game in the eighth inning, and was able to hold the Nationals scoreless for an inning. He came out to start the ninth, but was pulled after giving up a single to Denard Span. Span would steal second against Evan Marshall, and came around to score on a throwing error for the walkoff win. Perez was charged with the run and the loss. He dropped to 2-3.


Salvador Perez's MRI comes back clean
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7:25 pm ET) An MRI on Royals catcher Salvador Perez came back clean, according to MLB.com.

Perez has been dealing with knee issues, but both he and manager Ned Yost have been adamant the injury is not serious. Perez first complained of tightness Monday, but played in Tuesday's game. He was held out Wednesday, though, and the club decided to send him for an MRI. Perez is hitting .268/.304/.417 over 441 at-bats.


Hyun-Jin Ryu able to throw bullpen session Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7:19 pm ET) Dodgers pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu was able to throw a bullpen session Thursday, according to MLB.com.

Ryu is working his way back from a glut injury. He's not expected to go on a rehab assignment. Ryu has been sidelined since August 13 due to the injury. He has a 3.28 ERA over 137 1/3 innings. 


Rafael Soriano picks up rare win Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7:12 pm ET) Nationals closer Rafael Soriano picked up a rare win Thursday against the Diamondbacks. 

Soriano entered with the game tied, and was able to get through the inning without giving up any runs. He did issue a walk, but worked out of trouble with an inning-ending double play. Soriano was the beneficiary of the Nationals hot stretch. In the bottom of the inning, the Nats were able to mount a comeback, scoring on a throwing error to end the game. With the win, Soriano improved to 4-1. 


More reason to like Steve Pearce again
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7:10 pm ET) I've wondered allowed if Steve Pearce's recent turnaround could be a sign of things to come and more than once compared him to Brandon Moss, thinking he could be another late-bloomer if only he'd get the chance.

Based on what CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman said on Thursday's Fantasy Baseball Today, he absolutely will.

The video goes into more detail, of course, but to summarize, the Orioles really like Pearce. They believe in him, which doesn't explain the way they used him in July, but whatever, it's a new month.

Considering he hit .336 with a 1.003 OPS over a two-month span earlier this season and .294 with an .893 over nine minor-league seasons, I'm willing to take a flier on him if I need a corner infielder or a late-season power boost.
