by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/30/2016) Flores (wrist) will not return this season, Newsday's Marc Carig reports.

This comes as no surprise, as Flores has continued to suffer setbacks in his attempts to return to action. The Mets will continue to deploy the likes of T.J. Rivera and Kelly Johnson at the keystone over the final two games of the season and into the postseason.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/30/2016) Bregman will not play this weekend, Brian McTaggart of reports.

The 22-year-old returned to the lineup Wednesday, but with Houston officially eliminated from postseason contention on Thursday, he will be shut back down. Bregman struggled initially upon arrival to the major leagues but quickly adjusted and finished with an impressive .791 OPS in 217 plate appearances. He appears primed to open 2017 in an everyday role.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/30/2016) Valencia has been scratched from Friday's lineup with a neck issue, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Matt Olson is now slated to start in right field against Taijuan Walker and the Mariners. The extent of the neck injury is uncertain and thus Valencia's status for the final two days of the regular season is up in the air.

Astros' Alex Bregman: Out of lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/30/2016) Bregman is out of the lineup Friday against the Angels, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

It was feared that Bregman's season was over as a result of a hamstring injury but he made a surprise return to the lineup Wednesday, finishing 1-for-4 with an RBI in a loss to Seattle. He will turn third base over to Yulieski Gurriel on Friday but Bregman figures to start at least one of the Astros' final two games of the regular season.

Giants' Eduardo Nunez: Remains out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/30/2016) Nunez (hamstring) is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Dodgers, according to CSN's Alex Pavlovic.

Nunez will miss his fourth straight game Friday as he continues to battle a sore hamstring. It remains to be seen if he will play again during the regular season, or during the postseason if the Giants advance.

Angels' Yunel Escobar: Out for second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/30/2016) Escobar (shoulder) is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Astros, Eric Kay of the Angels reports.

Escobar will miss his second straight game as a result of the shoulder injury that forced him from Tuesday's contest. Jefry Marte will man the hot corner for the Angels on Friday night.

Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Held out of Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/30/2016) Cuthbert is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Indians, according to Joel Goldberg of FOX Sports Kansas City.

Cuthbert went 0-for-7 over his last two games, so manager Ned Yost decided to give him his first day off since Sept. 19. Whit Merrifield will man the hot corner Friday in Cuthbert's place.

Giants' Conor Gillaspie: Continues to start against righties
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/30/2016) Gillaspie got another start in place of Eduardo Nunez (hamstring), going 2-for-2 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored in Thursday's 7-2 win over the Rockies.

With just three games left in the regular season it is looking more and more likely that Nunez will not be returning to the lineup. If that is the case, then Gillaspie would split the remaining starts at third base with the newly-signed Gordon Beckham. With the Giants scheduled to face lefties both Friday and Saturday, Beckham would likely see starts over Gillaspie if Nunez is unable to suit up.

Red Sox's Yoan Moncada: Leaves for Fall League
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/29/2016) Moncada has gone to Arizona to prepare for Fall League, ending his season with the Red Sox, Ian Browne of reports.

Though Moncada is immensely talented and certainly a centerpiece of the Red Sox future, his youth and inexperience were evident during his stint with the big league ball club this fall as he slashed .211/.250/.263 with 12 strikeouts in 19 at-bats. Brock Holt and Travis Shaw figure to man the hot corner the rest of the way while Moncada reports to Arizona Fall League.

Giants' Eduardo Nunez: Out of lineup Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/29/2016) Nunez (hamstring) is absent from the lineup for the third straight game Thursday against the Rockies.

Manager Bruce Bochy told reporters Wednesday that Nunez may not return this weekend, so his fantasy season -- which has seen him put up career numbers just about across the board -- could be over. While we wait on Nunez's status for the coming days, Conor Gillaspie continues to start in his place at the hot corner, batting eighth Thursday.
