Tigers and 3B Nicholas Castellanos avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $6.05 million contract.

The 25-year-old Castellanos turned in his best season yet, batting .272/.320/.490 with 26 home runs and 101 RBI in 157 games. He will have one more shot at arbitration next year and will be a free agent following the 2019 season.

Robinson Cano went 3-for-5 with a three-run homer and two doubles in a 7-4 victory over the Astros on Monday.

Cano took Colin McHugh deep in the eighth inning with two runners on to break a 4-4 tie. It's the first homer for the infielder since his return from an 80-game suspension, and the fifth of the year over 45 games. On the year, Cano is now hitting .296/.383/.456, and there hasn't been much -- if any -- rust since returning to the lineup. If someone impatiently waived him, you should have already added him.

Ramon Laureano went 2-for-5 with two homers and five RBI in a blowout win over the Rangers on Monday.

Laureano took Bartolo Colon deep for a two-run blast in the second, and he added a three-run shot in the sixth off of Colon to make it 7-0 A's. It's the first two homers of Laureano's big league career, who has made an immediate impact with Oakland both with the bat and the glove since being called up on August 3. His season line is .281/.281/.469, and he's driven in eight runs in his 12 games. At the very least, Laureano is worth monitoring, and he's worth a roster spot in AL-only leagues.

Mike Fiers was outstanding on Monday against the Rangers, giving up just one hit over seven scoreless innings in a 9-0 victory.

Fiers was at his best on Monday, allowing just a double to Nomar Mazara in the top of the second. He also walked just one, and he fanned eight Texas hitters in the win. Since being acquired from the Tigers, the veteran right-hander has allowed just three runs in 18 1/3 innings with the A’s, and his season ERA now sits at a solid 3.21 with a 1.16 WHIP in his 137 1/3 innings overall. He toes the rubber again versus the Twins on Saturday, and he’s a sneaky good streaming option in that match-up.

Zack Wheeler struck out a season-high 10 batters over seven innings and did not factor into the decision in the Mets' 2-1 loss to the Giants in extra-innings on Monday.

Wheeler held the Giants offense scoreless through the first six frames before surrendering a game-tying RBI double to Alen Hanson with two outs in the seventh inning. He allowed just one run on five hits in a dominant performance, but was forced to settle for a no-decision and the Mets lost the contest in extra-innings. The 28-year-old right-hander racked up an absurd 21 swinging strikes on 113 pitches. In 15 starts since June 1, Wheeler owns a sparkling 2.71 ERA and 93/28 K/BB ratio over 96 1/3 innings. He’ll face the Nationals at home in his next start on Saturday.

Dan Winkler earned his second save of the year on Monday night against the Pirates.

Winkler gave up a leadoff single to Francisco Cervelli in the bottom of the ninth inning, but he rallied to strike out two of the final three batters he faced and secured a big 1-0 victory for Atlanta. A.J. Minter blew a save in ugly fashion Saturday against the Rockies and hasn't pitched since, so perhaps we'll see more of Winkler in the ninth inning moving forward. Arodys Vizcaino remains sidelined with a shoulder injury.

Corey Kluber netted his 16th win of the season Monday in the Indians' 5-4 defeat of the Red Sox.

Kluber dug himself an early hole, giving up two runs in the bottom of the first inning and one more in the bottom of the second, but he settled in nicely from there, ultimately finishing with six strikeouts against one walk. He scattered nine hits. The veteran right-hander is now 16-6 on the season with a 2.74 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and 166/23 K/BB ratio in 174 1/3 innings. He'll go for win No. 17 this weekend in Kansas City.

Kendrys Morales homered twice, tallying four total RBI, in the Blue Jays' 5-3 win over the Orioles on Monday.

Morales put the Jays on the board with a solo shot off O's starter Andrew Cashner in the bottom of the fourth inning before tagging Cashner again for a three-run blast in the bottom of the fifth. The veteran slugger also went yard in Sunday's series finale against the Yankees. He's up to 16 homers and 45 RBI in 103 games this year, to go along with a .252/.334/.439 overall slash line.

Chris Archer was lifted from Monday's start versus the Braves with left leg discomfort.

Archer appeared to have tweaked something while he was batting. The Pirates are deeming his exiting precautionary, so it seems safe to call the right-hander day-to-day. Archer allowed one run on five hits and one walk over four innings of work before being pulled.

Jose Altuve (knee) is set to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

That had been the indication and Astros manager A.J. Hinch confirmed as much Monday. Altuve played in one rehab game Sunday, singling and getting hit by a pitch in his four plate appearances. The second baseman has been sidelined since late July with right knee discomfort.

George Springer was scratched from the Astros' lineup Monday due to left quad soreness.

Manager A.J. Hinch indicated that Springer would be available off the bench, so it appears that the club is just being overly cautious here. Tyler White entered the lineup in Springer's place.

MLB.com's Greg Johns has reported that the Mariners could be shooting for the August 30-September 2 series versus the Athletics for James Paxton's (forearm) return.

Paxton played catch for the second straight day Monday and is expected to throw off a mound next. He's eligible for activation from the disabled list on Saturday, but it sounds like it will likely be about a week after that when he returns. Paxton landed on the DL last week with a left forearm contusion after he was struck by a line drive.
