Yankees' Didi Gregorius: Reaches 20-homer mark for first time

News: Gregorius went 3-for-4 with a solo homer Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Gregorius was one of three Yankees to hit one out against Boston starter David Price, continuing his season-long trend of excelling against lefties. The 26-year-old shortstop is putting together by far his finest campaign to date, as he now has 20 homers after never managing to top nine in a season since breaking into the majors in 2012.

Eduardo Escobar
Twins' Eduardo Escobar: Homers Tuesday in Kansas City
Eduardo Escobar, SS, MIN

News: Escobar went 2-for-4 with a walk, solo homer and scored twice in Tuesday's game against the Royals.

Escobar's fourth-inning blast was his sixth of the season, and his first in the team's last 51 games. Tuesday also marked the switch-hitting infielder's first RBI and run since Sept. 15, as Escobar has had a brutal final month of the 2016 campaign. Entering the contest, he was hitting a pathetic .089/.150/.089 through 56 September at-bats, light years beyond his worst numbers for any month this year.

Elvis Andrus
Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Out of Sunday's lineup

News: Andrus is out of the lineup Sunday against the A's.

Andrus' fantastic showing at the plate continued Saturday, as he went 2-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI. However, he'll have Sunday off as Hanser Alberto gets the nod to start at shortstop.

Jose Iglesias
Tigers' Jose Iglesias: Not in lineup Sunday
Jose Iglesias, SS, DET

News: Iglesias is not in the lineup Sunday against the Royals.

Iglesias was listed on the Tigers' initial lineup, but the team issued a second lineup shortly after that does not include the young shortstop. At this point, it does not appear as if the absence is related to the hand injury that forced him out of Friday's game, and it's worth noting that Iglesias started and played in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Royals. Andrew Romine will get the starting nod at shortstop in Iglesias' place Sunday.

Brad Miller
Rays' Brad Miller: Two more RBI in Saturday loss
Brad Miller, SS, TB

News: Miller went 1-for-3 with a two-run double and run in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Red Sox.

The slugging infielder continues to serve as an RBI machine, with the pair of runs he drove in Saturday getting him to 80 on the season. Miller plated Curt Casali and Kevin Kiermaier with his second-inning two-bagger, erasing an early 1-0 deficit. He now has a five-game hitting streak, as well as 15 RBI overall in September.

Carlos Correa
Astros' Carlos Correa: In Saturday's lineup

News: Correa (shoulder) is in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Angels, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

An ill-fated diving attempt at shortstop Friday resulted in an injury to Correa's left shoulder, the same one that cost him time earlier this month, but the 22-year-old won't even miss a start. Correa has posted just a .677 OPS this month but his second-half line still sits at .290/.371/.451.

News: Tulowitzki went 2-for-4 with a pair of two-RBI singles in Friday's 9-0 victory over the Yankees.

Tulo excelled with men on base Friday, opening the scoring in the first with a bases-loaded hit that drove home Josh Donaldson and Edwin Encarnacion. He came through with the bases jammed again in the seventh, plating Encarnacion and Jose Bautista with another single that pushed the Blue Jays' lead to 7-0. Tulowitzki has hits in five of his last seven games and now has double-digit RBI (11) for the third consecutive month.

News: Ramirez is out of the lineup Thursday against the Yankees, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Ramirez has started three consecutive games, but will sit out of Thursday's contest. In his place, Brad Miller will start at shortstop and hit cleanup.

News: Bogaerts is not in the lineup Thursday against the Orioles, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

After playing every game since Aug. 14, Bogaerts will give way to Brock Holt at shortstop. Over his last three games, Bogaerts has gone just 2-for-12 with five strikeouts.
