Astros' George Springer: Knocks three hits in win against Seattle
George Springer, RF, HOU

News: Springer went 3-for-5 with a double, two runs scored and two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Mariners.

Springer now has multiple hits in four games in a row as he is getting hot at the right time for the Astros as they continue to push for the playoffs. He is now up to 115 runs scored this season, good for fourth in the major leagues. Extra-base hits have been a big reason why -- Tuesday's double was his 29th, and he's now up to 62 extra-base hits in 158 games.

Carlos Gomez
Rangers' Carlos Gomez: Homers in win over Brewers
Carlos Gomez, LF, TEX
12:26 AM
News: Gomez hit a three-run homer, his 12th, in a 1-for-4 game Tuesday against the Brewers.

Gomez had just seven home runs in 90 games through August. With Tuesday's blast, he already has five homers in September to go with five doubles and 13 RBI. He's playing like the All-Star the Astros hoped Gomez would be for them, and he looks like he has locked himself into the Rangers leadoff spot for the stretch run and the playoffs.

Rays' Nick Franklin: Wants to return before season ends
Nick Franklin, LF, TB

News: Franklin (hamstring) hopes to return before Sunday's game against the Rangers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Franklin is dealing with a sore hamstring, but hopes that he'll be ready to play before the Rays' season finale Sunday. If Franklin is able to return, look for him to appear in the Tampa Bay outfield or at their DH spot.

Adam Eaton
White Sox's Adam Eaton: Back in action Tuesday
Adam Eaton, RF, CHW
9/27/2016
News: Eaton (multiple injuries) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Rays.

He will slot back in atop the order against right-hander Alex Cobb after missing three starts with multiple injuries resulting from a collision with the outfield wall Friday. The biggest concern was a possible concussion, but evidently no delayed onset symptoms surfaced in the days that followed the collision.

Andy Burns
Blue Jays' Andy Burns: Recalled from Triple-A
Andy Burns, LF, TOR
9/27/2016
News: Burns was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.

Burns will add a little infield depth over the final six days of the season with Devon Travis ailing, but don't look for him to see many at-bats. He hit .230/.285/.352 with eight home runs and 13 steals in 111 games at Triple-A this year.

Lorenzo Cain
Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Officially done for season
Lorenzo Cain, CF, KC
9/27/2016
News: Cain (wrist) has officially been shut down for the season, MLB.com's Jeffrey Flanagan reports.

The writing had been on the wall for a while, given how the Royals had handled Cain since the injury, and now it is official that he won't return until next year. Look for Jarrod Dyson and Paulo Orlando to continue seeing regular at-bats in the final week of the season.

Analysis: 

Kevin Kiermaier
Rays' Kevin Kiermaier: Remains out Tuesday
Kevin Kiermaier, CF, TB
9/27/2016
News: Kiermaier (hand) remains out of the lineup Tuesday against the White Sox, MLB.com's Bill Chastain reports.

He will miss a second straight game with the hand injury he suffered over the weekend. Mikie Mahtook will start in center field and hit fifth Tuesday.

Mikie Mahtook
Rays' Mikie Mahtook: Two more hits in Monday defeat
Mikie Mahtook, LF, TB
9/27/2016
News: Mahtook went 2-for-4 with a double in Monday's 7-1 loss to the White Sox.

The young outfielder is starting to slowly find some success at the plate, now having hit safely in three of his last four games with a pair of doubles over that span. While his .255/.255/.353 line over 51 September at-bats is nothing to write home about, it certainly far exceeds a nightmarish August where he hit .163 (8-for-43). Despite the recent success, Mahtook's two homers this season underscore the fact that he's yet rediscover the power stroke he displayed in his 2015 cup of coffee with the Rays, when he tallied nine round-trippers in just 105 at-bats.

Analysis: 

Jaff Decker
Rays' Jaff Decker: Tallies three hits in Monday loss
Jaff Decker, RF, TB
9/27/2016
News: Decker went 3-for-4 with a run in Monday's 7-1 loss to the White Sox.

The 26-year-old put together his first multi-hit effort of 2016 and broke the modest 0-for-8 slump that covered the last four games he'd registered an at-bat in. Decker is now 3-for-12 since rejoining the Rays and is slashing just .171/.244/.171 over 41 major league at-bats this season.

Analysis: 

Darrell Ceciliani
Blue Jays' Darrell Ceciliani: Enters Monday for first time in 15 games
Darrell Ceciliani, CF, TOR
9/27/2016
News: Ceciliani entered Monday's game versus the Yankees as a pinch runner, but did not play the field or get an at-bat.

Monday marked the first time Ceciliani has stepped between the lines since Sept. 9. After striking out in his only at-bat of the month, the outfielder didn't appear in the team's next 15 games, the longest such stretch in Ceciliani's short MLB career. Simply put, the 26-year-old is only on the team because of roster expansions, and he's not expected to contribute during the final weeks.
