Rangers still unsure if Yu Darvish (elbow) will travel with team on their upcoming road trip.

Darvish isn't expected back until September, if at all. At this point, there is absolutely no need to rush him, even though Rangers manager Ron Washington said that by returning, Darvish would prove to his teammates that he isn't a quitter. Okay, Ron. The Rangers are going nowhere this year and risking further injury doesn't make much sense. This is a situation to continue monitoring.

Update: Michael Cuddyer said his hamstring is feeling better and hopes to return Sunday. Cuddyer is not expected to land on the disabled list.

But if Cuddyer did land on the disabled list, would you really be surprised? Of course you wouldn't. There is no doubt that Cuddyer is a very good hitter, but the fact of the matter is that he just cannot stay healthy. Stash him on your bench for now and hope that he can get back on the field by early next week.

Anibal Sanchez threw off flat ground Friday, felt good. He will throw again between games on Saturday.

Losing Sanchez was a tough blow to the Tigers and fantasy owners, but it appears as though he's getting closer to a return. He will likely need a few rehab starts before returning to the Tigers rotation, but he should be available for most of the month of September. If he was dropped in your league, now is the time to grab him.

Kyle Lohse (ankle) says he's "good to go" after throwing a bullpen session on Friday.

The veteran right-hander had his start skipped this past Monday, but appears to be good to go moving forward. Lohse is in the midst of yet another fantastic season, posting a record of 11-7, with a 3.49 ERA and 1.18 WHIP. He will be inserted back into the rotation next week and is a must own going forward.

Gregory Polanco is not in the Pirates starting  lineup on Friday.

This has been a recent trend for the Pirates rookie outfielder. As is usually the case with rookies, Polanco has hit peaks and valleys throughout the season, but overall his numbers are decent. He's in a slump at the moment, but could break out of it at anytime. Given his ceiling, I wouldn't be dropping him in shallower leagues just yet.

Javy Guerra is back with the White Sox and should be activated from the bereavement list on Saturday.

Guerra will return to his regular relief role upon his arrival. There's no fantasy value to be had still, so it's likely that no one even knew he was gone.

Shae Simmons continues to get treatment on his shoulder in Atlanta. No timetable for when he could throw again at this point. 

Simmons was shut down a few days ago as he was still experiencing shoulder soreness. If treatment doesn't help, he may be in need of an MRI to determine if there's more to the problem than originally diagnosed. With no timetable set, consider him out indefinitely.

Michael Cuddyer is not in the Rockies starting lineup on Friday.

Cuddyer is actually out of the lineup due to hamstring swelling and was not cleared by team trainers to play. He is considered day-to-day and Charlie Blackmon is in right field for Friday's game.
