New York Mets third baseman Juan Uribe (chest/ribs) is considered "very iffy" for the divisional series against the Dodgers, per ESPN New York.
Uribe first suffered damage to cartilage in his chest two weeks ago while diving for a grounder. He then aggravated the injury during a pinch-hitting appearance in Cincinnati on Sept. 25. Uribe is still unable to do any baseball activity and is likely to be left off the roster unless he shows material improvement the next few days.
Colorado Rockies catcher Tom Murphy (shoulder) is out of the lineup Sunday against the San Francisco Giants , MLB.com reports.
Unsurprisingly, the Rockies will shut Murphy down after he strained his left shoulder in Saturday's game. Though Colorado is expected to bring Nick Hundley and Mike McKenry back next season, Murphy should be a candidate to contend for an Opening Day role with the Rockies in 2016 as the backup catcher. He's hit 23 homers and 27 doubles across three levels this season.
Houston Astros third baseman Jed Lowrie (quad) will rejoin the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks.
Lowrie injured his quad Tuesday, but did take two walks Saturday. He's back in action Sunday, playing third base and batting seventh.
San Diego Padres outfielder Wil Myers (wrist) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Dodgers.
Myers has been on the bench for all three games of the series while dealing with wrist soreness. He has had a difficult time staying on the field for prolonged stretches since undergoing surgery earlier this season, and has appeared in just 60 games in 2015.
Washington Nationals slugger Bryce Harper (shin) is back in the lineup for the Sunday season finale against the Mets.
Harper had a scare after missing the second leg of the Saturday doubleheader thanks to a hit-by-pitch in Game 1, but he'll tough it out and finish the season in the starting lineup. At stake for the phenom is a chance to hit the 100-RBI mark and lock up the NL batting title, where he's in a virtual tie with Dee Gordon.
St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Stephen Piscotty is in the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Atlanta Braves , Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.
Piscotty had to miss a start in the last three games due to a concussion, but it looks like St. Louis is confident enough in his health to plug him into his usual spot at right field batting second. They could have benched him until the playoffs began, but the risk seems small enough to send him out for the final day of the regular season.
Atlanta Braves catcher Christian Bethancourt (thumb) isn't in the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader with the St. Louis Cardinals , Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan reports.
Bethancourt hasn't played since Thursday while dealing with the left thumb contusion. It's likely that the Braves will just give Ryan Lavarnway and A.J. Pierzynski the starts behind the plate for the doubleheader, allowing Bethancourt to get an early start on his offseason. He should be over the thumb injury in quick fashion.
Atlanta Braves first baseman Nick Swisher (forearm) is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the St. Louis Cardinals .
Swisher was a late scratch Saturday with a forearm strain and he'll miss the first game of Atlanta's final day of the regular season. With him under contract for 2016, there's little reason to expect him to start in Game 2.
Atlanta Braves catcher A.J. Pierzynski is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the St. Louis Cardinals , Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan reports.
He'll likely be back on the mound for Game 2 to serve as the battery mate for Matt Wisler , but Ryan Lavarnway gets the nod behind the plate for the early game.
Colorado Rockies pitcher Chris Rusin took the loss Saturday despite a quality start, giving up three runs on five hits and two walks over six innings while striking out four.
All three runs came on solo homers, not a good showing for a Rockies pitcher on the road, but otherwise Rusin wasn't bad.
He'll finish the season with a 5.33 ERA, and his home/road splits are almost identical so that figure doesn't look like a Coors Field mirage. He'll likely still be in the mix for a rotation spot next season, though.
