Rangers' Adrian Beltre: Has big night Tuesday versus former team
Adrian Beltre, 3B, TEX
6:38 AM
News: Beltre went 3-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and scored three runs in Tuesday's 8-7 win over the Mariners.

Beltre's third-inning, two-run blast was his 24th of the year, and eighth in August, the most longballs he's hit in any month this season. The veteran owns a ridiculous .330/.395/.631 slash line through 103 at-bats since Aug. 2, raising his season's batting average more than 10 points (from .276 to .290) in the process.

Manny Machado
Orioles' Manny Machado: Hits 10th August homer Tuesday
Manny Machado, 3B, BAL
12:52 AM
News: Machado went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer Tuesday against Toronto.

Machado's 444-foot bomb in the fifth inning was one of three long balls for a homer-happy Orioles offense. The 24-year-old is now just three shy of last season's career-high 35 home runs, and has made up for a lack of steals with a .306/.357/.563 line. He has left the yard 10 times in August after doing so just nine times in the previous two months combined.

Jose Reyes
Mets' Jose Reyes: Continues to spark Mets offense
Jose Reyes, 3B, NYM
12:42 AM
News: Reyes lead the way for the Mets on Tuesday, going 4-for-5 with a double and a pair of runs scored while batting leadoff in a 7-4 win.

Reyes raised his batting average to .300 with the four-hit night, and now has 25 runs in 33 games with the Mets. Reyes has been a key pickup for the Mets, sparking what was an anemic offense that is still 28th in the MLB in runs scored, but is a respectable 12th in August. Reyes' six steals actually lead the team, although they're a far cry from 37 per year he's averaged over the course of his career.

Todd Frazier
White Sox's Todd Frazier: Hits historic homer Tuesday versus Tigers
Todd Frazier, 3B, CHW
8/30/2016
News: Frazier went 1-for-4 with a solo shot and two RBI in Tuesday's game against the Tigers.

Frazier's second-inning blast was his 33rd of the year, tying Bill Melton's 1971 record for most homers by a White Sox third baseman. The 30-year-old has a history of second-half slides, and the 2016 campaign has been no different. Although his batting average is nearly identical to his pre All-Star mark, Frazier's on-base and slugging percentage have dropped significantly since the Midsummer Classic. Those in weekly formats don't have much choice but to start him, but making the bold decision to sit Frazier in daily leagues isn't the craziest idea based on his history.

Cardinals' Greg Garcia: Dealing with knee soreness

News: Garcia is battling some knee soreness, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Although the ailment isn't expected to sideline Garcia completely, it will limit his availability for the days ahead. Jedd Gyorko is manning shortstop Tuesday and will likely see the bulk of the work there until Garcia is cleared to return to the field.

Kaleb Cowart
Angels' Kaleb Cowart: Out of Tuesday's lineup
Kaleb Cowart, 3B, LAA
8/30/2016
News: Cowart is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Reds, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Since being called up Aug. 20, Cowart has gone 8-for-30 (.267) with eight strikeouts over eight games. He'll have the night off as the Angels opt to start Cliff Pennington at second for their matchup against Tim Adleman and the Reds.

Analysis: 

Cheslor Cuthbert
Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Not in lineup Tuesday
Cheslor Cuthbert, 3B, KC
8/30/2016
News: Cuthbert is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Yankees, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio reports.

Cuthbert has gone just 4-for-18 with six strikeouts over the last four games, so he'll get the night off as Christian Colon gets the nod to start at the hot corner. Look for Cuthbert to return to the lineup Wednesday evening against the Yankees.

Jorge Polanco
Twins' Jorge Polanco: Sitting out Tuesday
Jorge Polanco, 3B, MIN

News: Polanco is out of Tuesday's lineup against Cleveland, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Polanco will have the night off and give way to Eduardo Escobar at shortstop when the Twins face Josh Tomlin and the Indians on Tuesday night. Polanco will likely return to action for Wednesday's series finale against the Indians.

Will Middlebrooks
Brewers' Will Middlebrooks: Activated, outrighted Tuesday
Will Middlebrooks, 3B, MIL
8/30/2016
News: Middlebrooks (lower leg) was activated from the disabled list and outrighted to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Tuesday.

Middlebrooks has recovered from his lower leg strain, but the Brewers will not add him to the 25-man roster at this time. There is an outside shot he could see action with the big club before the season ends when rosters expand in September.

Casey McGehee
Tigers' Casey McGehee: Optioned to Triple-A Toledo
Casey McGehee, 3B, DET
8/30/2016
News: McGehee was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday.

McGehee has struggled at the plate recently, having gone 10-for-51 (.196) over the last 14 games, bringing his batting average down to .232 for the season. He'll return to Toledo where he owns a solid .322/.376/.449 line with 49 RBI. In a corresponding move, JaCoby Jones was recalled from Toledo.
