T. Story - SS
Manager Bud Black said Story (elbow) is going to Arizona on Thursday to "get more treatment" and "maybe do a few baseball activities" there, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
Black added that Story is day-to-day and "it truly is encouraging where he is," according to Buster Olney of ESPN. The shortstop exited Monday's game with right elbow soreness after making a diving stop in the field, though a subsequent MRI ruled out structural damage. Ian Desmond is starting at shortstop in his place Wednesday.

H. Bader - CF
Baser went 1-for-3 with a solo homer -- his 12th of the season -- in Wednesday's loss to the Braves.
Bader put the Cardinals on the board with his solo shot off Touki Toussaint in the fifth inning, though the Braves would respond with three runs of their own in the bottom half of the frame en route to the victory. The young outfielder has picked it up after a slow start to the month, homering in two of the last three games while hitting safely in all three.

J. Flaherty - SP
Flaherty (8-8) took the loss Wednesday against the Braves, allowing five runs on five hits and two walks across 4.2 innings. He struck out six.
Flaherty allowed just one hit through the first three innings before running into trouble. He allowed a two-run homer to Freddie Freeman in the fourth inning and was chased with two outs in the fifth inning after allowing three more runs on two hits, two walks and a wild pitch. It was a rare blowup for the rookie, who hadn't allowed more than three runs in any of his past eight starts heading into Wednesday. Flaherty still owns a 3.08 ERA and 11.0 K/9 on the season (26 starts) and will look to bounce-back in his next outing, which will come at home against the Brewers.

T. Walker - SP
Walker (elbow) will begin a throwing program Monday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.
Walker will start by playing catch from 45 feet before slowly progressing from there. The right-hander is expected to be out until sometime during the 2019 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery back in April.
Added 7:35 pm (EST)
T. Cahill - SP
Cahill (back) could rejoin the rotation during Oakland's three-game series against the Twins over the weekend, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
Cahill hasn't pitched since Sept. 9 due to upper-back discomfort. The right-hander was able to throw 35 pitches in a bullpen session Wednesday, and it sounds like he could be cleared to rejoin the rotation sometime over the weekend if he checks out OK in the coming days.
Added 7:32 pm (EST)
B. Belt - 1B
Manager Bruce Bochy said Wednesday that Belt's (knee) season is likely over, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Belt is on the bench for a fifth straight game as he continues to battle a recurring knee issue. While an MRI over the weekend revealed no structural damage, continued discomfort has prompted the Giants to send the veteran first baseman back to San Francisco for additional testing. He could undergo surgery in the near future. Either way, Belt figures to sit out the remainder of the season with the Giants out of playoff contention, leaving Austin Slater and Aramis Garcia to cover first base.

S. Manaea - SP
Manaea underwent successful shoulder surgery Wednesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Specifics regarding the procedure remain unknown, though everything apparently went as planned. Manaea is expected to miss all of 2019 after going under the knife. He posted a career-best 3.59 ERA through 27 starts this season prior to suffering the injury.
Added 7:17 pm (EST)
B. Morrow - RP
Morrow (arm) was shifted to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.
This is simply procedural, as Morrow has already been ruled out for the remainder of the season due to a bone bruise in his right arm. He's expected to be ready for the start of spring training next season. Pedro Strop (hamstring) is also sidelined, so Steve Cishek, Justin Wilson, Brandon Kintzler and Jesse Chavez are all options to see saves for Chicago down the stretch. Allen Webster was promoted from the minors to take Morrow's spot on the roster.
