Clayton Kershaw (back) played catch prior to Sunday night's game, but there is still no definite timetable for his return.
While we'd like to take the "no news is good news" approach here, we have to update you bitter, irate Kershaw owners out there. We're not trying to rub it in at all that you used a first round pick on a starting pitcher. Seriously, we're not. As we said, there's still no timetable for Kershaw's return. Some estimates have him at least a month away, but we'll just have to wait and keep tracking his progress. Tough to sell him, but surely there's someone in your league willing to trade based on name alone.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jake Marisnick was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored on Thursday night against the Royals.
Jake Marisnick had two hits from the bottom of the order which included a double and a run scored in Houston’s 5 -2 win over Kansas City on Thursday night. His double in the second inning with two outs kept the inning alive and Marisnick scored on a single by Jose Altuve before Yordano Ventura left the game after a rain delay in the second inning. Although Marisnick struggled in the second half, he did finish September/October with a .275 average with three home runs and seven stolen bases. Analysis: Greg Jewett
