Brewers signed RHP Matt Albers to a two-year, $5 million contract.

The deal was reported on Monday and it's now official. Albers joins the Brewers after an excellent season with the Nationals where he put up a stingy 1.62 ERA, 0.85 WHIP, and 63/17 K/BB ratio over 61 innings. We're not banking on a repeat, but it's hard to quibble with the addition at this price.

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. How long Santana will be sidelined isn't known at this point. 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.

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.

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.

J.D. Martinez slugged his MLB-leading 38th homer in Saturday’s win over the Rays.

He pulled ahead of Cleveland’s Jose Ramirez with a solo shot against Tyler Glasnow in the third inning. Martinez also drew a walk, stole a base, and scored a run in the first inning. The 30-year-old has hit safely in six straight games and owns a monster .333/.404/.667 batting line on the year.

Kolten Wong left Saturday's game against the Brewers with a right elbow contusion.

Wong was hit in the elbow by an errant Wade Miley pickoff attempt in the bottom of the third inning. He stayed in to run the bases, but was replaced by Greg Garcia at second base in the top half of the next inning. The Cardinals should have an update after the game.
