Pirates' Starling Marte: Hopes to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(8:36 am ET) Marte returned to the field in Tuesday's game against the Cubs for the first time in nearly a week, grounding out as a pinch-hitter in the fifth inning.

Aside from a plate appearance last Wednesday and another before exiting early the next night, Marte has been sidelined by lower back tightness since Sept. 6. Marte said the tightness in his back "comes and goes" and occasionally veers into pain, but he hopes to be able to play a full game Wednesday, if his body allows it.


Giants' Hunter Pence: Homers against Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(3:44 am ET) Pence homered, scored twice and drove in two in a 3-for-4 game with a walk Tuesday against Colorado.

Pence is having a dominant September, as Tuesday's performance brings his line for the month to .333/.404/.559 with five home runs. He has struggled with injuries and has appeared in just 101 games this season, but his OPS is now up to .827, his best mark since 2011, split between the Astros and Phillies.


Padres' Hunter Renfroe: Homers twice, drives in seven runs against Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(3:08 am ET) Renfroe homered twice and drove in seven runs in a 2-for-4 game Tuesday against the Dodgers.

Renfroe had a game that would go down as a career best for many in just the sixth game of his major league career. There was plenty of reason to expect big things from the 24-year-old, as he posted a sharp .893 OPS with 30 homers for Triple-A El Paso. He's showing he has big time power and that no walls around the majors -- not even Petco Park's -- can keep him in. He has opened his young career with a ludicrous .353/.389/.941 batting line.


Phillies' Roman Quinn: Leaves with oblique strain
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/27/2016) Quinn left Tuesday's game with a left oblique strain, Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

It seems likely that Quinn won't return this season. On the whole, it's been an impressive debut for Quinn, who has showcased his speed and gotten on base at a .373 clip. He appears poised to be an everyday player for the Phillies for a good chunk of 2017, which will lead to him being a fantasy asset, specifically for his production in steals. He went 3-for-4 with a double, a run and a stolen base (his fifth in 15 MLB games) before leaving with the injury Tuesday.


Cubs' Chris Coghlan: Racks up stats Tuesday against Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/27/2016) Coghlan went 2-for-3 with a walk, triple, three RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's game against the Pirates.

Coghlan's bases-loaded triple in the second inning was his second of the season, and gave the veteran 11 RBI for September, his highest total in any month this season. Overall, the 2016 campaign has been a disappointing one for Cohlan, who has been plagued by injuries and part of a mid-season trade for the first time in his career. On the bright side, the 31-year-old seems to be hitting stride just in time for the playoffs. In Coghlan's last seven starts, he's 11-for-122 with seven walks, seven RBI and seven runs.


Mets' Jay Bruce: Homers Tuesday in Miami
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/27/2016) Bruce went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer in Tuesday's game against the Marlins.

Bruce's second-inning blast was his 31st of the season, and his second in the last four games. The veteran is riding a modest four-game hitting streak as he attempts to earn back the confidence of manager Terry Collins. After slumping his way through August (.183 average in 93 at-bats), and starting slow in September, Bruce found himself riding the pine for five of the team's six games last week. However, he's now received the starting nod in each of the last three games, so owners in need of Bruce's services can feel confident in deploying him once again.


Giants' Mac Williamson: Placed on disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/27/2016) Williamson was placed on the disabled list Tuesday with an injured quadricep, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

After playing 54 games, Williamson will end his 2016 season with a .223/.315/.411 line and six home runs. The decision to put Williamson on the DL was made in order to make room for the newly-acquired Gordon Beckham on the club's 40-man roster.


Brewers' Ryan Braun: Dealing with sore wrist
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/27/2016) Braun is out of Tuesday's lineup with a wrist injury, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Braun is experiencing wrist soreness, which is why the Brewers decided to start Michael Reed in left field Tuesday evening. Fortunately for Milwaukee, Braun is expected to return to the lineup Wednesday. However, consider him day-to-day until then.


Rockies' Gerardo Parra: Sits out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/27/2016) Parra is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Giants.

Parra started the past two games after sitting out over the weekend with an illness, but he'll get the night off now that the Rockies are officially eliminated from the postseason race. Stephen Cardullo will take over at first base for the evening.


Cubs' Jorge Soler: MRI comes back clean Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/27/2016) Soler (side) underwent an MRI Tuesday and everything came back clean, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Soler's side injury flared up after returning to the lineup Saturday, but it seems that the outfielder avoided any major setbacks from the incident. He's expected to rejoin the team in Cincinnati this week, although it's unclear how quickly the Cubs will push him back into the lineup with the postseason so close.
