Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Phillies have signed Carlos Santana to a three-year, $60 million contract.

MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez says the Phillies also have a $17.5 million club option for 2021. It's an odd fit on the surface, as it means either Rhys Hoskins or perhaps even Santana will play the outfield or Santana will move back third base and bump Maikel Franco from a starting job. Perhaps there will be a series of moves coming from Philly. Santana does give the Phillies a bona-fide bat, as he boasts a career .249/.365/.445 batting line and has averaged 24 homers per season in his seven full years. The Indians will now have to turn to Plan B at first base.

Luke Weaver has been demoted to the Cardinals' bullpen in favor of Daniel Poncedeleon.

Weaver has been wildly inconsistent for the Cards this season and has failed to go even four innings in two of his last three outings. Meanwhile, Poncedeleon threw seven no-hit innings in his lone start with the big club last month and has been solid out of the bullpen, as well. He'll start Tuesday against the Dodgers.

Stephen Strasburg (neck) will rejoin the Nationals' rotation Wednesday against the Phillies.

Neck and shoulder ailments have limited Strasburg to just one major league outing and two rehab starts since mid-June, but he'll forego a rehab assignment this time and be thrust right back into the Nats' rotation. It's not ideal, but with Washington clinging to faint playoff hopes they probably didn't think they had much of a choice. Fantasy owners should be starting Strasburg this week even with the risk that he might not be sharp.

Twins placed RHP Ervin Santana on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to August 16, with reoccurring symptoms related to his original injury to his third finger MCP joint.

Santana had surgery on the finger back in February and had a setback while on his rehab assignment, as well. He's never looked right since the Twins activated him late last month, posting an 8.03 ERA over five starts. He'll see a hand specialist on Tuesday. With a $14 million club option for 2019 that's likely to be declined, it's possible his tenure with the Twins is over.

Ryan Braun (rib cage) is back in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

It's his first start since he exited Wednesday's game with tightness in his rib cage. Braun is in left field and batting sixth against John Gant and the Cardinals.

Blue Jays placed RHP Marcus Stroman on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to August 18, with a blister on his right middle finger.

The blister has bothered Stroman for at least a couple starts and he really struggled in his last outing Friday against the Yankees. Hopefully it will heal quickly and the right-hander can return when his 10 days are up. Thomas Pannone will take Stroman's spot in the Jays' rotation.

Albert Pujols went 3-for-4 with a homer, a walk, four RBI, and two runs scored in Saturday’s 11-7 victory over the Rangers.

Pujols clubbed a solo shot against Martin Perez in the second inning, his 19th of the season and the 633rd of his career. He would go on to knock in two runs on a single in the third and one more with a go-ahead single in the seventh. This was his first multi-hit game of the month. In fact, Pujols had just one homer and three RBI for all of August coming into Saturday’s action. The 38-year-old is batting .256/.292/.431 on the year.

Paul Goldschmidt went 4-for-4 and knocked in four runs against the Padres on Saturday.

That didn't stop the Diamondbacks from losing, but it was still a huge night for him. Goldschmidt had RBI singles in the first, third, and seventh innings and knocked in a run with a double in the fifth. The 30-year-old has been on a torrid hot streak of late, hitting .488 (20-for-41) over his last 10 games. It might have been unthinkable given where he was around the start of June, but Goldschmidt now holds a very Goldschmidt-like .293/.397/.547 batting line on the year.

Mike Foltynewicz struck out nine batters while tossing seven shutout innings but did not get a win as the Braves lost in extra innings on Saturday.

He allowed just four baserunners (four hits and no walks) in the sterling outing. He was relieved after throwing 113 pitches, 75 for strikes. He threw a crazy wild pitch about 10 feet behind batter D.J. LeMahieu in the third inning, which allowed a runner to reach third base but no harm came out of it. The 26-year-old right-hander has been one of the biggest surprises of the campaign, going 10-7 so far with a 2.72 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 24 starts. He owns 161 strikeouts in 139 innings.

Joe Musgrove held the Cubs to one run in seven innings and was credited with a win on Saturday.

He struck out seven batters without issuing a free pass. He surrendered five hits, including a solo shot by Ben Zobrist for the only blemish on his boxscore. This makes five consecutive quality starts for Musgrove as he heads down the stretch in his first season with the Pirates after coming over in the Gerrit Cole trade with the Astros. He will try to keep the momentum going when he puts his 5-7 record and 3.31 ERA on the line against the Brewers on Friday.
Aug 18 - 10:58 PM

Miles Mikolas spun six innings of one-run ball in a 7-2 win over the Brewers on Saturday.

Mikolas gave up a solo homer to Travis Shaw in the second inning, but he was able to hold the Brewers off the board the rest of the way. He gave up just five hits on the night while walking none and striking out seven. The 29-year-old has won five straight decisions and now sits at 13-3 with a 2.85 ERA across 25 starts. Only four pitchers in the NL have a better ERA. He’s been quite the find for St. Louis.
Aug 18 - 10:54 PM

Matt Harvey tossed 6 1/3 innings of scoreless baseball and earned a win over the Giants on Saturday.

He sprinkled four hits -- all singles -- and one walk while striking out five batters in the gem outing. He was in control all night and the Giants were unable to mount any serious threats against him. Harvey improves to 6-7 on the season with a 4.91 ERA in 21 starts and four relief appearances with the Reds and Mets. He had a 7.00 ERA in 27 innings with the Mets and has a 4.28 ERA in 90 1/3 innings with the Reds. He is a free agent after the season.
