Nationals manager Davey Martinez expects Ryan Zimmerman (oblique) to return next Friday.

Zimmerman is slated to begin a minor league rehab assignment on Monday with the goal of returning to the majors immediately following the All-Star break. The veteran was seen running sprints prior to Thursday's game against the Mets and seems to be nearing the finish line in his recovery from a strained oblique. Martinez acknowledged that Zimmerman likely would have begun his rehab sooner but most of the team's minor league affiliates were on All-Star break this week. Matt Adams, Mark Reynolds and Daniel Murphy have shared reps at first base throughout his absence.

Gio Gonzalez held the Reds to zero runs on two hits through six innings and was rewarded with a win on Wednesday.

He surrendered a pair of singles and a pair of walks while striking out five in the victory. The former National has pitched well in two of his three starts since joining the Brewers in the middle of a pennant race. For the season he is 9-11 with a 4.28 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 30 starts. He is a back-end starter in fantasy terms. He is hard to trust on a daily basis and should only be used against weak-hitting teams. He lines up for one more start in the regular season, which will come in St. Louis against the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Jason Kipnis boomed a walk-off grand slam in the bottom of the ninth inning to beat the White Sox 4-1 on Wednesday.

The Indians trailed 1-0 and had just two hits in the ballgame as they headed into the final frame. They loaded the bases on a couple of cheap singles and a hit batsman to set the stage for Kipnis's heroics. He launched one off reliever Ian Hamilton down the right field line that stayed fair as the home crowd roared. It was a nice moment for Kipnis in what has been another disappointing season for the veteran and his fantasy owners. He is slashing just .229/.317/.388 with 17 home runs and 72 RBI. He was dropped down to the ninth slot in the batting order for the first time today. He has been bumped to the outfield due to the addition of Josh Donaldson and could see reduced playing time down the stretch.

Carlos Carrasco struck out 11 batters and gave up just one run in 6 1/3 innings of work against the White Sox on Wednesday.

He pitched magnificently but was actually on the hook for the loss until the Indians scored four times in the bottom of the ninth inning to pull out a victory. The one blemish on his line was a solo home run off the bat off Daniel Palka in the sixth inning. Carrasco's record holds at 16-9 with a fine 3.35 ERA and 1.11 WHIP after 29 starts and one relief appearance. He has an elite 217:37 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 182 2/3 innings. The Indians will probably nurse him through one or two short starts as they prepare for the playoffs.

Dylan Covey had to settle for a no-decision despite shutting out the Indians for six innings in a game his team eventually lost on Wednesday.

He held the Tribe batters to just two hits and three walks while striking out five in the gem outing. It was a rare excellent start for the struggling right-hander. He certainly deserved a win for his efforts today but the White Sox bullpen blew it for him in the ninth inning. His record holds at 5-13 with a 5.33 ERA after 19 starts and six relief appearances. He recently rejoined the starting rotation after Michael Kopech went down for Tommy John surgery.

Luke Voit went 4-for-4 and clubbed a pair of home runs as the Yankees trounced the Red Sox 10-1 on Wednesday.

Both dingers came off left-hander David Price. The first was a solo shot in the fourth inning and the second came with a runner aboard in the sixth. The young first baseman has thrived in a part-time role since joining the Yankees. He is being used mostly as a lefty-killer. He has a superlative .308/.390/.615 slash line with 10 home runs and 23 RBI in 118 plate appearances. The first 13 of those plate appearances came with the Cardinals earlier this year.

Eduardo Nunez was removed in the ninth inning during Wednesday's game against the Yankees with soreness in his right knee, and won't play in Thursday's contest against the Yankees.

Nunez apparently felt the knee injury when running to first base earlier in the game, and Red Sox manager Alex Cora told reporters that they weren't going to take any risks and will sit the utility player on Thursday against the Yankees. Consider Nunez day-to-day, but he likely will undergo tests to make sure there's no structural damage. It's also worth mentioning that Nunez has battled knee injuries in the past, so there's added worry based on that history.

Luis Severino gave up just one run through seven innings and was rewarded with a win against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

He shut down the highest-scoring offense in the majors without much difficulty. He struck out six batters, walked one and surrendered six knocks. The only run came on an RBI-single by catcher Sandy Leon in the fifth inning. Severino burned 109 pitches in this game and might be used lightly in his last start of the season if the Yankees have clinched the wild card by then. The young right-hander is 18-8 with a 3.38 ERA in 31 starts this year. It is unclear right now if he will get one or two more starts as he makes a run at 20 wins.

Rockies manager Bud Black told reporters that Trevor Story (elbow) will head to the team's spring training facility to receive treatment on Thursday.

Black also repeated that Story is "day-to'day" and that it is "truly encouraging" to see where he is at this point. There were initial fears that his 2018 season -- and perhaps a large portion of his 2019 campaign -- were in danger because of the potential damage to his UCL in his right elbow, but it turns out that there's no structural damage. He'll receive the treatment at Salt River Fields, and there's a real chance he could be back in the lineup soon. It's wonderful news when you consider the alternative.

Brandon Belt is heading back to San Francisco to undergo an MRI on his knee, and could have surgery soon according to Giants manager Bruce Bochy.

Belt has missed the last four games -- and isn't playing Wednesday against the Padres -- because of soreness in his right knee. An initial MRI showed no damage, but it's obviously possible that the first baseman has aggravated something while trying to get back onto the field. It would be an upset if Belt played another game in 2018, even if the MRI comes back negative.

Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 with a homer and a double in a loss to the Rays on Wednesday.

That homer ties Stan Musial and Willie Stargell for 30th on the all-time homer list with 475 over his career, and it's the 13th of his 2018 season. He also doubled, the 21st of the campaign. He's not the same fantasy stalwart he was just a few short seasons ago, but he's still a competent player as seen in his .273/.333/.425 line in 111 games.
Sep 19 - 5:13 PM

Tommy Pham went 3-for-5 with two homers in a 9-3 rout of the Rangers on Wednesday.

Pham hit his fourth homer of the season when he took Yohander Mendez deep in the third inning, and he added his fifth of the season and second off the day off of Bartolo Colon in the eighth. He's been limited by injuries, but he's been excellent when on the field for Tampa bay, slashing .327/.419/.570 over 28 games. It won't help them get to the playoffs this year, but he's a big reason why they've been one of the best teams since the trade deadline in the American League.
