Matt Carpenter and Matt Adams have returned to the Cardinals starting lineup on Monday.

Both players were suffering from an illness and had been out of the lineup bot are returning here for the final week as the Cardinals look to lock up the NL Central and head to the playoffs. Both a viable fantasy options.

Mark Teixeira (wrist) had a cortisone shot and hopes to play Tuesday.

While it's nice to hear that Teixeira isn't quitting on the season, how effective he's going to be down the stretch. The wrist issue could keep him out for a few games during the week and it's tough to rely on him to hit for much power given the nature of the injury. Hopefully you have an alternative for the final week of the season.

Mets are picking up option for 2015 on GM Sandy Alderson and progressing toward an extension.

While Alderson has made a few mistakes, what GM hasn't? He's helped assemble some fine, young talent, particularly for the future rotation, and should be given an opportunity to see it through. Now if he picks up more knuckleheads like Chris Young again, well then that's a different story.

Yankees claimed OF Eury Perez off waivers from the Nationals.

Perez was designated by the Nationals for assignment last week. He does have upside batting .310/.354/.411 with 63 stolen bases in 193 career games at Triple-A, so the 24-year-old is definitely worth a shot for the Yanks.

Braves have relieved Frank Wren of his duties and named John Hart interim General Manager.

Interesting change here for the Braves but not really surprising considering some of the recent moves Wren has made. He's taken on some big contracts and is already saddled with a bunch of names the team will never be able to rid of, such as B.J. Upton. Hart should do well with the club.

Masahiro Tanaka told reporters he felt fine following the game and he doesn’t believe Tommy John surgery will be needed.

While that sounds encouraging, it's also probably doubtful. One outing doesn't mean anything. Let's see how he feels after multiple outings. He'll have the offseason to heal, but once spring training starts up and he is throwing with more regularity, we'll see what happens. With cautious optimism is how you should be viewing this.
