Ozzie Albies swatted two home runs and drove in four RBI during a 9-5 win over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

He started off small by lifting a sacrifice fly to drive in pitcher Mike Foltynewicz in the second inning. He clubbed a solo dinger in the sixth, then belted a two-run shot in the eighth. The 21-year-old second baseman has burst onto the scene has a fantasy stud for the first time this season and is a big reason why the Braves are unexpected playoff contenders this year. He has a .288 batting average with 20 home runs, 54 RBI and leads the National League with 73 runs scored. He's also stolen nine bases.

Neil Walker slugged a go-ahead three-run home run in the seventh inning of the Yankees' comeback victory over the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Nathan Eovaldi held the Bombers in check for six innings, but Brandon Workman and Ryan Brasier coughed up the lead an inning later, with the latter serving up the longball to Walker. It was a no-doubter that reached the second deck in right field at Yankee Stadium. The home run was the first this month for Walker, who was making just his second start in over a week.

Corey Kluber punched out 11 batters while allowing three runs over eight innings in the Indians' 5-3 victory over the White Sox on Tuesday.

The White Sox took Kluber deep twice in the sixth inning, but they were both solo shots. The ace was pitching on seven days' rest and certainly looked strong in this one as he recorded his sixth double-digit strikeout game of the season. Two of those outings have come against the White Sox. Kluber will face a stiffer test Sunday versus the Red Sox.

Travis Shaw was removed from Tuesday night's game against the Reds due to a right knee contusion.

Shaw took a pitch off the knee in the bottom of the second inning and eventually got replaced in the Brewers' lineup by Hernan Perez. This is hopefully just a day-to-day situation for Shaw. He'll be reevaluated Wednesday.

Rockies manager Bud Black said Tuesday evening that Trevor Story's right ulnar collateral ligament is still intact.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic heard from sources Tuesday afternoon that Story had potential damage to the UCL in his right elbow, but Black says team doctors only found inflammation while adding that the "joint is fine" and "there is no structural damage." He expressed hope that Story might be able to return to action "in a few days." Great news all around. Garrett Hampson is starting at shortstop for the Rockies on Tuesday night against the Dodgers.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon announced Tuesday evening that Brandon Morrow (elbow) has been shut down for the remainder of the season.

Morrow has been sidelined since mid-July with a bone bruise in his right elbow, and he was never able to get over the hump in his rehab. Pedro Strop is also currently sidelined with a left hamstring strain, so the Cubs will have to deploy a closer-by-committee strategy for the remainder of the regular season and possibly into the playoffs. Morrow, who logged just 30 2/3 innings for the Cubs in 2018, is due a $9 million salary next year.

Salvador Perez is out of the Royals' lineup Tuesday due to soreness in his left thumb.

Perez sprained the thumb late last month, and the last-place Royals will probably take it easy on him for what remains of the 2018 regular season. Meibrys Viloria is catching and batting eighth Tuesday versus Pirates right-hander Jameson Taillon.

James Paxton (illness) threw in the Mariners' bullpen ahead of Tuesday night's game against the Astros.

Paxton wasn't expected to throw a bullpen session until Wednesday, at the earliest, so this is a very encouraging development. The left-hander hasn't pitched since September 7 due to a combination of pneumonia and the flu, with his temperature apparently rising to as high as 104 degrees at one point. He could potentially return to the Mariners' starting rotation this weekend against the Rangers.

Trevor Bauer (leg) threw off the mound to live hitters on Tuesday afternoon at Progressive Field.

Bauer joked to manager Terry Francona after the workout that he's available to pitch on Tuesday night against the White Sox. That obviously won't happen, but he could potentially rejoin the Indians in a multi-inning relief role before the end of the week. Francona said he'll sit down with the medical staff on Wednesday to determine the next appropriate step. Bauer has been out since mid-August due to a stress fracture in his right fibula.

Jose Abreu has been hospitalized in Cleveland due to an infection in his right thigh.

The infection apparently stems from an ingrown hair and Satchel Price of the Chicago Sun-Times notes that the White Sox "will likely be without" Abreu for their entire three-game series at Progressive Field. Perhaps he'll be ready to rock this weekend. Matt Davidson is playing first base and Daniel Palka is at DH on Tuesday night against Indians right-hander Corey Kluber.
Sep 18 - 4:44 PM

Michael Fulmer has been diagnosed with a torn meniscus in his right knee.

Fulmer will get a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday, but it sounds like surgery might already be scheduled for Thursday. This will obviously cut into the 25-year-old right-hander's offseason program, but he could potentially be ready for the start of the 2019 campaign if he's able to avoid setbacks with his rehab. Fulmer posted a disappointing 4.69 ERA and 110/46 K/BB ratio over 132 1/3 innings with the Tigers in 2018.
Sep 18 - 4:33 PM

Edwin Encarnacion (ankle) is expected to return to the Indians' starting lineup on Wednesday.

Encarnacion has been out since Saturday with a right ankle sprain, but it sounds like the AL Central champs are just being cautious. Yandy Diaz is filling in as Cleveland's designated hitter Tuesday versus the White Sox.
