Tim Beckham
Orioles' Tim Beckham: Hamstring injury confirmed

News: Beckham is doubtful to play Sunday after injuring his hamstring Saturday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. However, manager Buck Showalter isn't sure if the injury will end Beckham's season, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.

The club presumably will perform more tests on their shortstop's hamstring. Beckham's status should become clearer in the next few days, though it's looking like a long shot that he'll return Tuesday after an expected Sunday break and a Monday off.

Miguel Cabrera
Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Unlikely to play Sunday
Miguel Cabrera, 1B, DET
9/23/2017
News: Cabrera, who's undergoing an MRI on his back, is not expected to play Sunday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

If all goes well, the veteran likely will be back in action Tuesday, following the Tigers' Monday off. Cabrera's lingering back problems may force him to endure a longer absence, though, and with the Tigers eliminated from the playoff race, perhaps they'll decide it's not worth pushing him back into action regardless of the results.

Jeimer Candelario
Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Exits with knee bruise
Jeimer Candelario, 3B, DET
9/23/2017
News: Candelario exited Saturday's game with a right knee contusion, and he's day-to-day.

The 23-year-old, who's being given an extended shot to lock down a place in the Tigers' future, may have to take a breather over the next few days. Candelario holds a .294/.379/.459 line with three homers in his first 124 plate appearances for Detroit.

Carlos Rodon
White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Surgery remains possible
Carlos Rodon, SP, CHW
9/23/2017
News: Rodon and the White Sox are still trying to determine whether he will have surgery on his left (throwing) shoulder, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

The southpaw was shut down for the season earlier in September and has not thrown since. Rodon's offseason recovery will determine how aggressively fantasy players should pursue him in 2018 drafts, though we're seemingly a long way from finding out the specifics about his timetable.

Analysis: 

Carlos Santana
Indians' Carlos Santana: Undergoing tests on shoulder
Carlos Santana, 1B, CLE
9/23/2017
News: Santana is getting an X-ray on his shoulder and likely won't play on Sunday, though manager Terry Francona doesn't appear concerned, Zack Meisel of The Athletic Cleveland reports.

This appears to be precautionary, but it's good to keep an eye out for the results and Santana's status before setting weekly lineups Monday -- if fantasy owners' leagues allow it.

Analysis: 

Jay Bruce
Indians' Jay Bruce: Aiming for Sunday return
Jay Bruce, RF, CLE
9/23/2017
News: Bruce (heel) is hoping he can serve as designated hitter Sunday after being removed from Saturday's game, Zack Meisel of The Athletic Cleveland reports.

The outfielder was reportedly removed for precautionary reasons, and the fact Bruce already is setting up to play a day later is encouraging. His owners should check his lineup status Sunday.

Analysis: 

Alex Wilson
Tigers' Alex Wilson: Suffers fractured leg Saturday
Alex Wilson, RP, DET
9/23/2017
News: Wilson was forced from Saturday's game after suffering a non-displaced fibular fracture on his right lower leg.

The lefty was struck by a batted ball, and the broken leg will end his season. Wilson will wind up with a 4.50 ERA and 17 holds in 60 innings. He'll look to heal in time for spring training heading into his second year of arbitration and, if tendered a contract, should hold down a role in the middle or late innings with the Tigers' bullpen in his age-31 season.

Analysis: 

Jean Segura
Mariners' Jean Segura: Considered day-to-day
Jean Segura, SS, SEA
9/23/2017
News: Segura is day-to-day after spraining the tip of his right middle finger Saturday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

His fantasy owners will have to check his daily lineup status, though it looks like he'll return before the end of the regular season. Segura will likely be replaced by Taylor Motter at shortstop -- as the case was Saturday -- for as long as he must rest.

Analysis: 

Max Kepler
Twins' Max Kepler: Leaves with hip injury
Max Kepler, RF, MIN
9/23/2017
News: Kepler was removed from Saturday's game against the Tigers with a left hip injury, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Kepler appeared to tweak something making a throw home in the first inning, and he was lifted in favor of Ehire Adrianza prior to his scheduled at-bat in the second frame. Expect Kepler's status to be updated further when more details regarding his injury are released.

Analysis: 

Boog Powell
Athletics' Boog Powell: Held out Saturday
Boog Powell, CF, OAK
9/23/2017
News: Powell (knee) is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rangers, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Powell's knee issue continues to linger, so he'll stick on the bench for sixth straight contest. A recent MRI came back negative, so as long as his swelling reduces in the coming days, he should be able to make it back before the season ends. That isn't a guarantee, though. In the meantime, Chad Pinder will continue to start in center field for the A's.
