Nationals First Baseman Adam LaRoche exited in the sixth inning of Monday's game against the Dodgers with 'stiffness in his lower back'; considers himself day-to-day.

LaRoche was 0-for-3 in three plate appearances Monday, and has just one hit in his last 26 at-bats. In spite of the brutal slump, he still carries a robust .257/.361/.437 triple slash with 19 home runs. It's safe to say the back has contributed to his recent woes at the plate. He should be back in the lineup later this week. Stay tuned for updates.

Nats manager Williams on Soriano's shaky outing Monday night, "He's been our closer all year and will continue to be."

Soriano hung on for the save, striking out Joc Pederson -- his first career at-bat -- to end the game with runners at the corners. After being nearly spotless for most of the season, Soriano has struggled over the past month and change, blowing three saves and posting an ERA over 6.00.

Salvador Perez went 3-for-4 with a home run, double, three RBI and a run scored in the Royals 4-3 win over the Rangers on Monday.

The home run was Perez's 16th of the season, and he's now slashing .269/.302/.424. He' still allergic to bases on balls like the rest of his Royals compadres, but he puts the ball in play which will always make his counting stats appetizing for a backstop. He's one of the game's premier catchers and should continue to be for many years.

Yordano Ventura allowed three runs(two earned) on five hits while walking four and striking out seven over 6.1 innings in the Royals 4-3 win over the Rangers on Monday.

Ventura didn't allow a hit until the fourth inning, and looked to be in control until he allowed consecutive hits to open the seventh inning. For the season, Ventura is sporting an impressive 3.38 ERA with a 132-to-57 strikeout-walk ratio in 152 innings. It's been a fun rookie season, and we're all grateful the anterior elbow issue he dealt with earlier in the season has turned out to be only a blip on the radar.

Juan Uribe went 2-for-4 with two RBI in the Dodgers 6-4 loss to the Nationals on Monday.

Uribe has been splitting time at third with Justin Turner, but with more performances like Monday, he should see regular at-bats at the hot corner. The ageless wonder is hitting an impressive .297/.323/.415 with six home runs in 328 PA. He's been dealing hamstring issues all season.

Matt Kemp went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in the Dodgers 6-4 loss to the Nationals on Monday.

Kemp powered up for his 17th dinger of the season and bumped his season triple slash up to an impressive .281/.346/.475 -- which is approximately 32-percent above the major league average. His entire skill-set on was on display Monday -- for better and worse. He terribly misplayed a RBI double by Nats third baseman Anthony Rendon. Kemp remains a strong fantasy option, although his on-the-field value is as low as it's ever been. He could be traded to an American League team this offseason.

Roberto Hernandez allowed five earned runs on five hits while walking one and striking out four over 4.1 innings in the Dodgers 6-4 loss to the Nationals on Monday.

Hernandez gave up a career-high four home runs in the outing, a feat he's likely to gloss over recounting his major league career to his grandkids someday. Fausto has been decent filling in Josh Beckett, and now owns an ERA of exactly 4.00. He's an OK streaming option next Sunday against the Diamondbacks at home.

Mets reliever Josh Edgin expected to remain in New York for an MRI on his throwing elbow.

It's bad news of Edgin and the Mets, who aren't anticipating a return to action anytime soon. 2014 has been a breakout season, as he's posted a spotless 1.40 ERA in 25 2/3 innings pitched. Let's hope Tommy John Surgery isn't looming for the 27-year old lefty.
