  • Tim Anderson SS | CHW

    White Sox's Tim Anderson: Swipes 15th bag in Sunday's win

    Anderson went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's 8-1 win over the Royals.

    Anderson extended his hitting streak to a career-high 15 games, continuing a surge that kicked off Aug. 1. During that run, he's brought his speed back into play -- Sunday's stolen base was his ninth over the last 17 games. Speed was an element of his game when he was in the minors, but Anderson got away from it for a while once he hit the majors.

    Mariners' Jean Segura: Out of Sunday lineup

    Segura (finger) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Indians, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports.

    After being forced to leave Saturday's game with what seems to be a minor sprained finger, Segura will get the day to recover. Taylor Motter will start at shortstop while Ben Gamel moves to the leadoff spot. Until further notice, consider Segura day-to-day heading into Monday's series opener against Oakland.

    Orioles' Tim Beckham: Out of Sunday lineup

    Beckham (hamstring) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rays.

    After hurting his hamstring in Saturday's game, Beckham wasn't expected to play Sunday. At this point in time, it's unknown whether or not he will return before the season comes to an end. The Orioles have Monday off, so more information regarding Beckham's status should be available heading into Tuesday's outing against the Pirates. J.J. Hardy is starting at shortstop Sunday with Beckham out.

  • Richard Urena SS | TOR

    Blue Jays' Richard Urena: Not starting Sunday

    Urena is out of the lineup Sunday against the Yankees.

    After seeing regular playing time at shortstop early in September, Urena has spent far less time in the lineup lately as he's started just one of Toronto's last five games. Darwin Barney is starting at second base while Ryan Goins moves to shortstop Sunday.

  • Carlos Correa SS | HOU

    Astros' Carlos Correa: Reaches base four times Saturday

    Correa went 3-for-3 with a walk, a double, three RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Angels.

    Correa's transition from a thumb injury hasn't gone as smoothly as he'd like, as he's .182 (12-for-66) in 17 games since the Astros activated him off the 10-day disabled list. He had missed so much time due to the injury, it's natural that it's taking Correa some time to get back to form. He squared up a couple of balls and received an intentional free pass Saturday, a good sign he's rounding into form for the postseason. Perhaps Friday's day off was just the ticket.

    Orioles' Tim Beckham: Hamstring injury confirmed

    Beckham is doubtful to play Sunday after injuring his hamstring Saturday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. However, manager Buck Showalter isn't sure if the injury will end Beckham's season, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    The club presumably will perform more tests on their shortstop's hamstring. Beckham's status should become clearer in the next few days, though it's looking like a long shot that he'll return Tuesday after an expected Sunday break and a Monday off.

    Orioles' Tim Beckham: Leaves game with apparent leg injury

    Beckham was removed from Saturday's game after suffering an apparent hamstring injury while legging out an infield single, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Beckham went straight inside to presumably be examined and was replaced by pinch runner J.J. Hardy. More details on Beckham should be revealed in the coming hours.

  • Jean Segura SS | SEA

    Mariners' Jean Segura: Considered day-to-day

    Segura is day-to-day after spraining the tip of his right middle finger Saturday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

    His fantasy owners will have to check his daily lineup status, though it looks like he'll return before the end of the regular season. Segura will likely be replaced by Taylor Motter at shortstop -- as was the case Saturday -- for as long as he stays out.

  • Indians' Francisco Lindor: Continues raking in September

    Lindor went 2-for-5 with a double, a homer and three runs Saturday against the Mariners.

    Lindor smashed his 33rd homer of the campaign to open the scoring for the Indians in the first inning of a road victory. He's launched eight homers while hitting over .300 this month, and he certainly has done everything in his power to help fantasy owners during the most important time of the season.

    Mariners' Jean Segura: Exits with apparent finger injury Saturday

    Segura left Saturday's game in the top of the ninth inning due to an apparent finger injury, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

    Johns said Segura appeared "to dislocate a finger on [a] play at second," but it's best to wait on specifics of the injury until the team announces it. The Mariners' waning playoff chances would be dealt a significant blow if Segura has to miss time with a little more than one week in the regular season remaining. Taylor Motter replaced Segura at shortstop upon his departure.
