8/28/2016 Adam Eaton, CWS, RF
Eaton left Sunday's game against the Seattle Mariners in the fifth inning with a bruised right forearm after being hit by a pitch.

Analysis: X-rays were negative and he is listed as day-to-day. Eaton initially stayed in the game after being hit by Seattle starter Taijuan Walker leading off the fourth inning and scored Chicago's first run later in the inning. Eaton played the field in the top of the fifth, but was pinch hit for in the bottom half of the inning by J.B. Shuck.
8/28/2016 Danny Santana, Min, CF
Santana left Sunday's game against the Blue Jays after he sprained his left shoulder in a first-inning collision with left fielder Robbie Grossman.

Analysis: The two outfielders collided on the warning track in left center while chasing leadoff batter Jose Bautista's high fly. The impact caused the ball to drop for a double, and Bautista later scored. Santana finished the inning but was replaced by Eddie Rodriguez in the second. Santana is batting .240 with two home runs and 14 RBIs for the last-place Twins, who have the worst record in the AL.
8/28/2016 Asdrubal Cabrera, NYM, SS
Cabrera left New York's game Sunday against the Philadelphia Phillies with one out in the first inning because of a sore left knee.

Analysis: He collided with Phillies' first baseman Tommy Joseph while beating out a one-out bunt single. As Joseph reached for pitcher Vince Velazquez's high throw, Cabrera's left arm made contact with Joseph's left hip. Cabrera appeared to twist awkwardly after the collision. After safely reaching first base, Cabrera doubled over in pain and was immediately attended to by the Mets' training staff and manager Terry Collins.
8/28/2016 A.J. Schugel, Pit, P
The Pirates recalled Schugel from Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday.

Analysis: Schugel is 2-2 with one save and a 3.86 ERA over 49 innings in 34 appearances with the Pirates this season. He is 1-2 with a 4.00 ERA over 18 innings in 13 relief appearances with Indianapolis. In his last six appearances at the Triple-A level, he tossed a combined 9 2/3 scoreless innings while allowing three hits.
8/28/2016 A.J. Griffin, Tex, P
Griffin allowed no runs for the first time this season and went six innings in Saturday's 7-0 win over Cleveland.

Analysis: Giffin stunningly didn't allow a homer for the first time in 12 starts. He'll make his next start Friday against the Astros, a team he hasn't faced since yielding two runs and four hits in six innings in a 7-4 win April 21.
8/28/2016 Carlos Carrasco, Cle, P
Carrasco, the majors' best road pitcher with a 1.74 ERA away from home this season, allowed five runs - four unearned - in the opening inning and the Indians went on to a 7-0 loss to the Rangers on Saturday night.

Analysis: Carrasco allowed all seven runs - three earned - and eight hits in four innings while striking out eight. He said he felt far different from his previous outing, eight shutout innings at Oakland on Monday. "I missed a lot of my pitches' location," he said. "A team like that (the Rangers), every pitch that I miss, I get hurt." His next outing comes Friday against the Marlins.
8/28/2016 José Ramírez, Cle, 3B
Ramirez had a triple among his three hits in Saturday's 7-0 loss to Texas.

Analysis: Ramirez is 7 for 16 in his last four games and his .377 average since July 26 is the second-best in the AL.
8/28/2016 Adrián Béltre, Tex, 3B
Beltre was 0 for 4 with two strikeouts as the Rangers beat the Indians 7-0 Saturday night.

Analysis: Beltre, who had homered in each of the first two games of the series, is 5 for 6 against Danny Salazar, Cleveland's scheduled starter for Sunday.
8/28/2016 Carlos Beltrán, Tex, RF
Beltran had a pair of singles as the Rangers beat the Indians 7-0 Saturday night.

Analysis: Beltran was 0 for 32 in his previous eight games, causing his average to drop 22 points to .286. He is 2 for 7 with a double against Danny Salazar, Cleveland's scheduled starter for Sunday.
8/28/2016 Yoenis Céspedes, NYM, CF
Cespedes again has soreness in his right quadriceps and was held out of the lineup for Sunday afternoon's game against Philadelphia.

Analysis: Cespedes originally suffered the injury on July 8 after chasing Daniel Murphy's RBI double to deep center field in the Mets' 3-1 loss to Washington. He went 1 for 2 with a mammoth home run in the Mets' 12-1 rout of Philadelphia on Saturday. He walked and scored in the seventh inning but was pinch-hit for in his second at-bat in the inning, as New York sent 11 men to the plate. He leads the team with a .295 average and is among the NL leaders with 26 home runs.
8/28/2016 Mitch Moreland, Tex, 1B
Moreland's grand slam capped a bizarre, five-run first inning as the Rangers beat the Indians 7-0 Saturday night.

Analysis: Moreland's homer was his 22nd of his season, bringing him within one of his career high set in 2013 and matched last season. He is 1 for 6 with a double lifetime against Danny Salazar, Cleveland's scheduled starter for Sunday.
8/28/2016 Álex Reyes, StL, P
Reyes made his first major league start, giving up one run on two hits and four walks in 4 2/3 innings of the Cardinals' 3-2 loss to the A's on Saturday.

Analysis: ''I feel like my command could have been better,'' Reyes said. ''Four walks, I wasn't able to get deep in the game, but I tried to execute pitches as best as I can. Things didn't work my way, but hopefully next time they will.''
8/28/2016 Evan Longoria, TB, 3B
Longoria was 0 for 4 with two strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Astros.

Analysis: Longoria, who is 3 for 19 in his last five games, is 4 for 13 with four strikeouts lifetime against Doug Fister, Houston's scheduled starter for Sunday.
8/28/2016 Zach Neal, Oak, P
Neal pitched a career-best six innings, allowing one earned run, in a 3-2 win over the Cardinals on Saturday.

Analysis: Neal had a 7.91 ERA in his first four major league starts, so this was a considerable step in the right direction.
8/28/2016 Albert Suárez, SF, P
Suarez gave up three runs and five hits in 4 1/3 innings of the Giants' 3-1 loss to the Braves on Saturday after starting in place of Jake Peavy, who went on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain.

Analysis: Suarez has a 4.38 ERA in seven starts in the majors this season.
8/28/2016 Matt Kemp, Atl, RF
Kemp hit a three-run homer, leading the Braves over the San Francisco Giants 3-1 on Saturday night.

Analysis: There's still some pop in the bat of the veteran, who has hit 17 of his 26 homers on the road.
8/28/2016 Tim Beckham, TB, SS
Beckham doubled among his three hits in Saturday's loss to the Astros.

Analysis: Beckham has gotten on a nice little roll, stringing together hits in seven straight games. He is batting .417 over this stretch, raising his average 26 points to .235.
8/28/2016 Mike Foltynewicz, Atl, P
Foltynewicz pitched 7 2/3 strong innings, allowing one run and striking out six, to lead the Braves over the San Francisco Giants 3-1 on Saturday night.

Analysis: It was just his second quality start in eight games, and he had a 5.94 ERA over his previous six. ''Best one of the year I would think,'' said Braves interim manager Brian Snitker. ''I thought he kept everything together really well.''
8/28/2016 Dallas Keuchel, Hou, P
Keuchel allowed nine hits and two runs in seven innings on Saturday for his first career victory over the Rays. He entered 0-4 in six starts against them.

Analysis: He has yielded two runs in each of his last two starts and has permitted two or fewer in seven of his last nine. He had one of his best starts of the season against the Rangers, who he will face on Friday, tossing a three-hitter with seven strikeouts on Aug. 5. He had a 7.91 ERA in losing his first three starts of the season to Texas.
8/28/2016 Tommy Hunter, Bal, P
The Baltimore Orioles have signed Hunter, bringing him back for a sixth straight season.

Analysis: Hunter was 2-2 with a 3.74 ERA in 21 games for Cleveland this season. He was in the minors rehabbing a recent back injury when the Indians cut him on Thursday. The 30-year-old Hunter played for Baltimore from 2011-15, going 21-20 with a 4.22 ERA. He said he was thrilled to rejoin the Orioles, adding there were ''a lot of smiles, a lot of hugs'' when he walked into the clubhouse.
