Twins' Perkins won't go on road trip; Jepsen to close in his absence
"I honestly don't know what happened. I pitched Tuesday. That day I would have said I felt 90-95 percent," Perkins said, per 1500ESPN.com. "Everything was good, everything was fine, I pitched, I didn't think anything of it after the game. Then when I woke up [Wednesday], I couldn't get out of bed. It completely blindsided me.
"I don't feel any better today [Thursday]. It's going to take a little bit more time this time."
Manager Paul Molitor said
"It's a tough thing. Because you can't really inject it, it's not an injury that needs that type of attention," Molitor said of Perkins' injury. "There's not really anything you can do other than to try to find ways to calm it down and do what you can to see if you can get him back out there.
"There's a chance, at least in my mind, that this could be something that lingers. Might have some good days, some bad days here on out."

Twins 3B Miguel Sano gets chance to rest hamstring injury

Twins closer Glen Perkins is day to day again due to back injury
Perkins, who has been dealing with the back issue for a few weeks, picked up his first save Tuesday since Aug. 16. But after throwing 19 pitches, Perkins felt sore Wednesday. When he went to play catch, his back started to spasm and the left-hander was sent for an MRI.
"There's no bulging disc, no serious issue that we have to look at other than the fact that we've got to keep this thing from continuing to flare up," Molitor said, per MLB.com. "I think right now there's a good chance he might stay back and spend some time here with our guys. [We'll] try to get him back and see if we can get him out on the trip at some point."
Dodgers' Bolsinger starting Friday to give rotation an extra day of rest

Dodgers calling up top prospect Corey Seager
The top-10 prospect arrives at the majors with a career .306/.368/.523/.891 slash line over four seasons in the minors.
The 21-year-old shortstop prospect and former first-round pick has spent most of the 2015 season with Triple-A Oklahoma City. In 104 games at Triple-A, he hit .276 with a .331 on-base percentage, .450 slugging percentage and .781 OPS. He also had 13 home runs, 29 doubles and 59 RBI.
Corey Seager is finally headed to the big leagues, but should Fantasy owners care at this point. Scott White says playing time could be an issue for the top prospect.
Jackie Bradley has been one of the best hitters in baseball over the last month, but Chris Towers remains skeptical about his breakout at the Fantasy Baseball Today blog.
Some pitchers you should know better than to sit in Fantasy Baseball, but the playoffs have a way of clouding our judgment. Scott White reminds you who you have to start and why.
Trea Turner might have been one of the best hitters left in the minors, but it's hard to see how he'll translate that to Fantasy value, Chris Towers says.
It's Sale vs. Hernandez but neither is our top pitcher.
