  • Drew Ellis 1B | PHI

    Phillies' Drew Ellis: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Ellis cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday.

    Ellis is no longer on the Phillies' 40-man roster, but it appears he will remain in the organization. The utility infielder saw action in 12 games for the Phillies this season, producing an .858 OPS.

  • Nolan Jones LF | COL

    Rockies' Nolan Jones: Swats 18th home run

    Jones went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and two walks in Sunday's loss to the Cubs.

    Jones got a hold of a slider from Jordan Wicks and sent it over the wall in center to extend the Rockies' lead to 3-1. The long ball was his seventh against left-handed pitching and his 10th on the road, as he's showing he doesn't need to rely on playing at home to be an impactful bat. He's been a true breakout star for the Rockies and is potentially setting himself up for a massive year in 2024 with a full season under his belt. The 25-year-old is now slashing .286/.382/.531 with 18 home runs, 55 RBI, 56 runs, 17 steals and a 50:117 BB:K in 393 plate appearances.

  • Tanner Bibee SP | CLE

    Guardians' Tanner Bibee: Shifted to 60-day IL

    Bibee (hip) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Sunday.

    The Guardians needed to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for the return of Triston McKenzie. Bibee had already been ruled out for the remainder of the season due to right hip inflammation.

  • Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Goes deep in loss

    Rodgers went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Sunday's loss to the Cubs.

    Rodgers took Jordan Wicks deep to center in the third to get the Rockies on the board. It was just his second home run since returning at the end of July and he's now sporting a slash line of .359/.419/.538 with six RBI, five runs and a 3:5 BB:K over his last 10 games. He's a viable streaming play for the final week of the season with the Rockies set to play seven games at home.

  • Mark Melancon RP | ARI

    Diamondbacks' Mark Melancon: Starts rehab assignment

    Melancon (shoulder) allowed three runs in two-thirds of an inning Sunday in his first rehab appearance with Triple-A Reno.

    This was the first game appearance in 2023 for Melancon, who has been out all season after being diagnosed with a subscapularis strain in his right shoulder back in March. It wasn't an encouraging first performance for the veteran reliever, but he's still hoping to show the Diamondbacks he's ready to rejoin their bullpen before the end of the week.

  • Ty Blach SP | COL

    Rockies' Ty Blach: Falters late against Cubs

    Black (3-3) took the loss Sunday against the Cubs, allowing four runs on six hits and three walks while striking out five over 5.1 innings.

    Blach struck out the side in the opening frame after walking the first batter he faced and was able to prevent any major damage until the sixth inning. With his third time facing the Cubs' order, Blach surrendered consecutive hits to put two runners in scoring position before a sacrifice fly and a two-run blast from Patrick Wisdom plated three runs and abruptly ended Blach's day. Blach's five strikeouts was just the third time he's reached that mark this season and he's now given up at least four runs in four of his last five starts. The 32-year-old a 5.42 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 46:22 K:BB in 73 innings and lines up for one more start against the Twins.

  • Jordan Wicks SP | CHC

    Cubs' Jordan Wicks: Posts quality start in Sunday's win

    Wicks (4-1) got the win over the Rockies on Sunday, allowing three runs on four hits and a walk while striking out three over six innings of work.

    Wicks was able to bounce back from his first rough outing of the year with his third quality start in six tries. He surrendered a two-run blast to Brendan Rodgers in the third and then Nolan Jones got to him with a solo shot in the sixth to extend the Rockies' lead to 3-1. The Cubs were able to respond with three runs in the sixth to take the lead and put Wicks in line for the win. The 23-year-old has been fantastic at preventing hard contact and had only allowed one home run prior to Sunday's outing. Wicks now owns a 3.00 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 23:10 K:BB in 33 innings and lines up to make one more regular season start against the Brewers.

  • J.P. Crawford SS | SEA

    Mariners' J.P. Crawford: Homers in loss

    Crawford went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Sunday's 9-8 loss to the Rangers.

    Crawford took Nathan Eovaldi deep in third inning for his second home run over his last five games and his fifth home run this month. He continues to be one of the Mariners' more impactful hitters, as he now has at least a hit in 12 of his last 13 games and is slashing .281/.349/.491 over that span. His 17 home runs on the year nearly double his previous career-high of nine in 2021 while his 58 RBI and 91 runs scored also are career-best totals.

  • Mariners' Teoscar Hernandez: Goes deep in loss

    Hernandez went 2-for-4 with solo homer, a walk, two RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.

    Hernandez finally found some power with his bat, as Sunday's home run was his first since Sept. 5 and just his sixth extra-base hit this month. He now has six hits and five walks over his last five games and will look to continue swinging a hot bat over the final week of the season. For the year, Hernandez is slashing .264/.313/.449 with 26 home runs, 92 RBI, 69 runs and a 38:199 BB:K in 655 plate appearances.

  • Bryan Woo SP | SEA

    Mariners' Bryan Woo: Surrenders four homers in loss

    Woo (4-5) allowed six runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six in just 3.1 innings in a loss to the Rangers on Sunday.

    Sunday was a nightmare outing for Woo, who had given up just six home runs in 16 starts heading into the day but surrendered four home runs and got just 10 outs. Marcus Semien led things off with a solo blast in the first followed by a two-run shot from Corey Seager in the third. Adolis Garcia then kicked off the fourth with a homer and Woo was finally pulled after Leody Taveras took him deep just three batters later. Woo has sandwiched two scoreless outings in between two poor outings during which he combined to give up 11 runs. He'll look to end things on the right foot with a rematch against the Rangers in the final week of the season.
