Tyrell Jenkins exited the game with what appeared to be an arm injury. He threw one pitch to Cabrera before sustaining the injury. John Gant replaced Jenkins with the Braves down 6-1 in the 8th.
King James, the real GM of the Cavaliers, usually gets what he wants. Expect the Cavs to meet the King's want for them to re-sign J.R. Smith. Smith was an key role player in the Cavs NBA Championship team last season. Smith is a streaky player but when he gets hot, there aren't many players in the NBA that can rival his three point shooting ability.
This is unfortunate, but also understandable that the Rockies do not want to push their 26-year-old lefty. Anderson has had a solid rookie campaign in Colorado, posting a 3.54 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 99-to-28 K/BB ratio across 114.1 innings (19 starts).
The drama continues. Bosh has unfortunately dealt with a blood clotting issue in his lungs that has held him out of action for long stints over the past two seasons. He and the Heat have had a public dispute going on in recent days, as the team cut ties with the 11-time All-Star.
Kluber suffered a quad strain in his start this past Monday. The original prognosis is that he would need about a week or a few days longer to recover to the point of getting back on the mound, so this timeline fits.
Gomes has missed most of the second half of the season due to a wrist injury, but he is getting back in action just in time for the playoffs. The 29-year-old backstop struggled to a .165/.198/.313 slash line across 262 plate appearances prior to the injury, but he does have plenty of thump in his bat.
Carrasco's chances of returning to the Indians' staff during the upcoming playoffs were already slim at best. Now, the team will prepare to be without the 29-year-old righty. Carrasco has posted an 11-8 mark with a 3.32 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 9.2 K/9 across 25 starts this year.
The Indians clinched the A.L. Central with plenty of room to spare, but their pitching staff is plagued with injuries heading into the playoffs. This is at least somewhat positive for them, as Salazar has been out of the rotation since September 9th. He is targeting a return during the ALDS.
Reece, who has spent the last few years in Oakland, was released by the Raiders earlier this week. The Patriots seem to bring in pass-catching running backs whenever possible and cannot get enough of them. All joking aside, with Dion Lewis on IR, Reece might just carve out a role in New England if he is signed.
Ifedi is expected to play and start at right guard in Week 4 against the Jets. The Seahawks' will finally get to see their first-round draft pick from this year in action.
