by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9:27 am ET) 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.


Pirates' Jordy Mercer: Dealing with more knee pain
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(12:11 am ET) Mercer left Saturday's game with a knee injury, The Fan 93.7 in Pittsburgh reports.

Speaking after Saturday's 11-6 victory over St. Louis, Mercer said that he's dealing with bumps and bruises, including a recurring sore knee. With Sunday's quick turnaround, there's a chance the team could give him the afternoon off. Prior to exiting Saturday's contest, Mercer went 3-for-3 with four RBI, missing the cycle by a home run.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/23/2017) Marte is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Marlins.

Marte will head to the bench for a breather after starting five straight games for the Diamondbacks, going 5-for-19 over that stretch. Adam Rosales will start at shortstop and bat eighth in his place.


Diamondbacks' Chris Owings: Won't be back for regular season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/23/2017) Owings (finger) hopes to return to the DIamondbacks during their National League Divisional Series matchup, Jarrid Denney of MLB.com reports.

Owings is eligible to return from the 60-day disabled list for the Diamondbacks' final series of the regular season against the Royals that begins Sept. 29, but he won't be an option for those games after his meeting Friday with hand specialist Dr. Don Sheridan revealed that the shortstop's fractured right middle finger hasn't healed completely. While the Diamondbacks won't benefit from the opportunity to assess Owings' health heading into the postseason by getting him a few regular-season games under his belt, he'll still be able to do some baseball activities while he waits for the finger to improve. Owings took batting practice in the cage, played catch and hit some underhand flips on the field prior to the Diamondbacks' game Friday against the Marlins.


Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Reaches base three times in victory
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/23/2017) Marte went 2-for-4 with a double, walk and a run scored in Friday's 13-11 win over the Marlins.

Marte has churned out a.270/.352/.365 batting line in September while chipping in 12 runs and two steals in 18 games, offering the Diamondbacks quality production while serving as the team's starting shortstop. Though Marte's power numbers have dipped since the All-Star break, his solid on-base skills and capable glove should lock him into an everyday role the rest of the way.


Dodgers' Corey Seager: Returns to lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/22/2017) Seager (ankle) is back in the lineup for Friday's game against the Giants, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

This comes as a surprise, because while X-rays on the ankle were negative, manager Dave Roberts just said Thursday that Seager would be out "at least" a couple more days. Regardless, Seager's penciled in to return, and will get a chance to improve upon his 1-for-9 career mark against Giants starter Jeff Samardzija.


Brewers' Orlando Arcia: Out again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/22/2017) Arcia is not in the lineup against the Cubs on Friday.

Arcia will stay on the bench for the second straight contest as manager Craig Counsell elects to go with Eric Sogard at the shortstop position once more. The 23-year-old could enter the fray during the latter stages of Friday's game, much like he did Thursday night.
