Carlos Correa, SS, HOU
9:23 AM
News: Correa (illness) is in the lineup Wednesday against Houston, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Correa exited Tuesday's game due to illness, going 0-for-3 at the plate prior to departing. The ailment apparently isn't anything serious, as Correa will start at his usual shortstop spot and bat cleanup against Pittsburgh's Gerrit Cole.

Michael Chavis
Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Promoted to High-A
Michael Chavis, SS, BOS
7:11 AM
News: Chavis was promoted to High-A Salem on Tuesday, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports. He served as Salem's designated hitter Tuesday, going 1-for-4 with a run scored.

Chavis, who was selected in the first round (26th overall) of the 2014 draft, repeated at Low-A Greenville in 2016 after an unspectacular 2015 with the Drive. He started this season looking like he was on a fast track to Salem, but a thumb injury blocked his momentum. Since returning from the injury, Chavis has been unable to replicate his torrid April.

Tim Anderson
White Sox's Tim Anderson: Stays out with big game against Phillies
Tim Anderson, SS, CHW
12:09 AM
News: Anderson tripled, scored twice and knocked in two runs in a 2-for-4 game Tuesday against the Phillies.

Anderson has started 15 straight games for the White Sox and has been fantastic, with a .339/.387/.615 line and eight extra-base hits in that span. He still has struck out 17 times in just 56 at-bats, however, and Anderson is going to struggle to say this hot if he can't make more consistent contact.

Tim Beckham
Rays' Tim Beckham: Leaves Tuesday with tight hamstring
Tim Beckham, SS, TB
8/23/2016
News: Beckham left Tuesday's game with a tight left hamstring, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports.

He went 1-for-3 before exiting Tuesday. Richie Shaffer came into the game at first base, moving Brad Miller over to shortstop. Beckham should be considered day-to-day for now.

Analysis: 

Marcus Semien
Athletics' Marcus Semien: Not with team Tuesday
Marcus Semien, SS, OAK
8/23/2016
News: Semien is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Indians.

He is listed on the lineup card as a reserve but Semien is not with the team Tuesday, according to Joe Stiglich of CSN California, after Semien and his wife welcomed a son into the world Monday night. The A's are expected to move Semien to the paternity list Wednesday but he should be back for Friday's series opener in St. Louis.

Analysis: 

Tyler Saladino
White Sox's Tyler Saladino: Remains out of lineup
Tyler Saladino, SS, CHW
8/23/2016
News: Saladino (back) is out of Tuesday's lineup, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Tuesday will mark the fourth consecutive game that Saladino hasn't played in. The White Sox haven't indicated that their utility man will need a stint on the DL, so consider him day-to-day heading into Wednesday's game against the Phillies.

Analysis: 

Matt Duffy
Rays' Matt Duffy: Out of Tuesday's lineup
Matt Duffy, SS, TB
8/23/2016
News: Duffy is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Red Sox, Bill Chastain of MLB.com reports.

The Rays will opt to give Duffy the night off and start Tim Beckham at shortstop for their contest against Clay Buchholz and the Red Sox. Duffy, who's hitting just .262 for the year, has had success at the plate lately and is 7-for-20 (.350) over the last seven games.

Analysis: 

Xander Bogaerts
Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Launches 15th home run
Xander Bogaerts, SS, BOS
8/22/2016
News: Bogaerts went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Monday's win over the Rays.

Bogaerts had come down to earth this month, but now has six hits in his last four games. The shortstop has just one home run and four RBI this month, but already has a career-high 15 homers and could eclipse his previous best of 81 RBI as well. Bogaerts should re-find his stroke and finish the season strong for the Red Sox.

Analysis: 

Brad Miller
Rays' Brad Miller: Supplies bases-clearing double in Saturday victory
Brad Miller, SS, TB
8/21/2016
News: Miller went 1-for-4 with a three-RBI double in Saturday's 8-2 victory over the Rangers.

He continues to tear the cover off the ball and provide timely hitting, with Saturday's clutch double serving as the latest example. Miller emptied the bases with a seventh-inning two-bagger to right that brought home Steven Souza, Jr., Luke Maile and Evan Longoria, giving him eight RBI over his last three games alone. Miller has also hit safely in six of his last seven, while slashing .328/.416/.746 over 67 August at-bats.

Jose Iglesias
Tigers' Jose Iglesias: Will begin rehab work Monday
Jose Iglesias, SS, DET
8/21/2016
News: Iglesias (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment Monday with Triple-A Toledo, MLB.com's Jason Beck reports.

Iglesias was placed on the disabled list just over a week ago, but it appears he will not require a lengthy amount of time to recover from his hamstring injury. He is expected to play at least four games with Toledo, but that still gives him a chance to be activated from the disabled list Friday when first eligible.
