News: Pina is experiencing significant pain in his sprained left thumb and could potentially miss the remainder of the season, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Pina sprained his thumb while apply a tag at home plate during Thursday's game against the Cubs. If he is indeed forced to sit out the remainder of the regular season, then Jett Bandy and Andrew Susac will serve as the primary replacements behind Stephen Vogt at catcher.

An exact return date still has not been established for Drew, but it appears that he could make his way back on to the field in the coming days. The 34-year-old hasn't played since July 25, but has been able to take at-bats and play catch in recent days.

News: Davis will be shut down for the rest of the 2017 season with a hip impingement, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

It's unclear when the hip injury emerged for the young righty, but it will end his season nonetheless. The 24-year-old will conclude his debut major-league campaign with an 8.63 ERA and 20:14 K:BB over 24 innings (six starts). Deck McGuire will take the mound Tuesday against the Brewers.

News: Martinez (thumb) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.

Martinez will be withheld from the starting lineup after suffering a sprained left thumb during Saturday's contest. A timeline for his return has not been revealed, so we'll just have to wait and see if he'll be able to return prior to the end of the regular season. Matt Carpenter will take over at first base Sunday with Jedd Gyorko drawing the start at third base.

News: Mercer (knee) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Mercer was forced out of Saturday's contest with a knee injury and will be given the day off Sunday to rest. The Pirates are off Monday, so he'll turn his attention towards hopefully returning to the starting lineup Tuesday against the Orioles. In the meantime, Max Moroff will draw the start at shortstop and bat seventh in the lineup.

News: Arroyo (shhoulder) will retire following the 2017 season, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Arroyo pitched 14 games this season before being placed on the disabled list with a shoulder injury at the latter end of June. It had been believed that his professional career would come to an end following the season, and that will indeed be the case. During his 16-year career, Arroyo threw for a 4.28 ERA and 1.30 WHIP over 419 games.

Dodgers' Yasiel Puig: Twists ankle but says he's OK

News: Puig said he feels OK despite twisting his ankle on the final play of Saturday's game against the Giants, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.

Puig went 0-for-4 but reached on a forceout in the ninth, then took it upon himself to attempt stealing second base, per Stephen, and was thrown out by Buster Posey to end the game. The Dodgers should have news on a clearer timetable for his availability before Sunday's contest starts.

Dodgers' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Forearm contusion shortens Saturday effort
Hyun-Jin Ryu, SP, LAD
9/23/2017
News: Ryu suffered a left forearm contusion while being struck with a batted ball Saturday, but X-rays came back negative, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

The southpaw finished his outing after 2.1 innings, giving up one run on three hits and striking out one. Ryu's immediate future remains in doubt, especially since the Dodgers have depth to replace him in the rotation as they look to play out the regular season before likely holding homefield advantage.

Zack Wheeler
Mets' Zack Wheeler: Transferred to 60-day DL
Zack Wheeler, SP, NYM
9/23/2017
News: Wheeler (arm) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Saturday, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.

Saturday's transaction was procedural only, as Wheeler had previously been ruled out for the year. However, the Mets needed to make the move in order to open a spot on the 40-man roster for fellow pitcher Noah Syndergaard. While Wheeler's 2017 campaign was cut short, he should be back to 100 percent in advance of spring training next year.

Nationals' Shawn Kelley: Headed for more tests
Shawn Kelley, RP, WAS
9/23/2017
News: Manager Dusty Baker said Kelley is dealing with inflammation and nerve trouble in his forearm, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

Kelley is set to get more extensive tests done on his arm after exiting Friday's game with an injury. The good news is the issue doesn't appear to be in the Tommy John area, but not much else is known beyond that. An update on his status should be available once his test results are disclosed.
