Shin-Soo Choo Headshot

Shin-Soo Choo, who has been sidelined since mid-August with a fractured left forearm, appears ready to rejoin the team for the playoffs.

We saw Choo take batting practice against live pitching this past weekend and the Rangers are positive that he'll be active for the start of the ALDS. We could even see him join the team before the end of the regular season to get a few at-bats under his belt. He's been out since August 17 with that fractured left forearm. He had a batting line of .247/.369/.416 with seven home runs over 46 games played this season.

Adrian Gonzalez Headshot

Adrian Gonzalez left Tuesday's game due to a sinus infection.

Gonzalez left after his second at bat due to the sinus infection and is considered day-to-day. There isn’t any concern here and the Dodgers will let their first baseman get back to 100 percent due to them already locking up the division. On the season, Gonzalez has a slash line of .282/.347/427 with 17 homeruns and 88 RBIs.

DJ LeMahieu Headshot

Rockies manager Walt Weis told reporters that he would sit DJ LeMahieu if the National League batting title is on the line.

Nearing the end of his best season as a pro, LeMahieu is batting .350. Daniel Murphy is on his heels, hitting .347 on the season, with Joey Votto hitting .324 in a distant third place. It would be the first career batting title for both LeMahieu and Murphy

Drew Pomeranz Headshot

Drew Pomeranz (arm) won't start the rest of the season.

Concerns about Pomeranz's forearm and elbow, as well as a career high in innings have the Red Sox looking at a bullpen role for the youngster in the postseason. Pomeranz was scratched from Thursday's start amid concerns over the arm, and Henry Owens will get the nod in his place.

Corey Kluber Headshot

Corey Kluber has been diagnosed with a mild strain of his quadriceps muscles and is expected to return in 7-to-10 days.

Positive news for the Indians as they are headed to the postseason. Kluber left the playoff clinching game early with the injury, and does not figure to get another start before the Divisional Series. On the year, the former Cy Young winner posted a 3.14 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP, to go along with 227 strikeouts in 215.1 innings.

Tyson Ross Headshot

Padres are exploring all options in regards to Tyson Ross (shoulder), including surgery.

Ross has received many differing opinions on the path he should take, but surgery seems to be more likely. After making just one start in 2016, in which he was lit up for seven earned runs in 5.1 innings, the hurler will most likely go under the knife.

Chris Davis Headshot

Chris Davis was ejected from Tuesday's game after arguing balls and strikes with the home plate umpire.

Davis was replaced at first base by Ryan O'Flaherty, and went 0 for 3 before his early exit. He still got three at-bats before being shown the gate, so if you started him in daily, you did not miss out on much. On the year, Davis is hitting .218 with 38 home runs, and 85 RBI, which is right on point with what owners expected out of the hard hitting lefty.

David Ortiz Headshot

David Ortiz told reporters that he won't play for the Dominican Republic's World Baseball Classic team next year.

It appears that Big Papi is truly done with baseball after this season. The veteran slugger is ending his career on a high note, hitting .319/.404/.629 on the year with 37 home runs and 124 RBI. The minute he hangs up the cleats, the countdown to the Hall of Fame begins.

Gordon Beckham Headshot

Giants officially acquired Gordon Beckham from the Braves in exchange for Rich Rodriguez.

The Giants wanted to add some veteran depth to their beat up infield, and Beckham will provide just that. Beckham had been relegated to a bench role once the Braves promoted prized prospect Dansby Swanson.

Corey Kluber Headshot

Indians remain optimistic that Corey Kluber will be back in the team's starting rotation after an MRI revealed no major damage to his groin.

Kluber left Monday's game with what was deemed a minor groin issue, and the MRI has confirmed that he did not suffer a serious injury. He likely will not pitch again during the regular season, as there is no reason to rush him back after the Indians clinched the AL Central Division title. He should be fine to go once the postseason kicks off, though.
