The Detroit Tigers optioned starting pitcher Joey Wentz on Monday. The 24-year-old made seven starts for Detroit as a rookie this season, logging 32.2 innings and pitching to an encouraging 3.03 ERA and a 3.54 FIP. He also added 27 strikeouts and walked 13 batters. Wentz figures to be part of the Tigers' rotation mix next season alongside the likes of Eduardo Rodriguez, Tarik Skubal, Spencer Turnbull, Matt Manning, and Beau Brieske. The Tigers also recalled right-hander Bryan Garcia from Triple-A on Monday.
Houston Astros right-hander Josh James (forearm), who has been on the 60-day injured list since June 23 with a right lat strain, underwent surgery on the flexor tendon in his right forearm, and the Astros haven't provided a timetable for his return. James had a setback during his minor league rehab assignment in the middle of last month, and now it's unclear if he'll even be ready for the start of spring training next year. The 29-year-old hasn't pitched at all for the Astros this year after making just five relief appearances in 2021 with a 5.40 ERA (3.77 FIP), a 1.20 WHIP and eight strikeouts in his five innings pitched.
Houston Astros right-hander Lance McCullers Jr. (illness) is lined up to start on Monday against the Philadelphia Phillies after missing his start last Tuesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks due to an unspecified illness. McCullers lost a few pounds but is good to go to kick off the final series of the regular season. It will be a final tune-up for the 29-year-old before the start of the postseason for the Astros in the Division Series. The Astros will be cautious with his usage in his start on Monday, so he'll be a bit more risky for anyone still playing for a fantasy title this week. McCullers has been strong in his seven starts for Houston this year, going 4-1 with a 2.38 ERA (3.40 FIP), a 1.25 WHIP, 45 strikeouts and 21 walks in 41 2/3 frames.
Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies (pinkie) took ground balls with a smaller cast on Sept. 30 that allowed him more mobility and the chance to get back on the field and stay in shape with the hopes of making a return during the postseason. Albies fractured is right pinkie finger sliding into second base against the Philadelphia Phillies on Sept. 17 in just his second game since returning from a fractured left foot earlier in the season. He will not play in the final three-game series of the regular season this week against the Miami Marlins, but there's still a chance he could contribute in the playoffs, barring any setbacks. The 25-year-old has just 247 at-bats in 2022, hitting .247/.294/.409 with eight homers, 35 RBI, 36 runs and three stolen bases.
Atlanta Braves left-hander Max Fried (illness) said he was feeling better when he arrived at Truist Park on Sunday to receive treatment and play catch for about five minutes. Fried was limited to five innings in his start on Friday against the New York Mets due to a stomach bug. If the National League East hasn't been decided, Fried could start the regular season finale on Wednesday against the Miami Marlins. But if he isn't needed, he would be lined up to start Game 1 of the wild-card series or the NL Division series. Before leaving his start on Friday, the 28-year-old southpaw allowed a run on four hits while striking out three on 71 pitches.
Atlanta Braves right-hander Spencer Strider (oblique) is expected to resume throwing again in the final days of the regular season early this week, but he's unlikely to be available before the National League Division Series that begins on Oct. 11. He first felt left oblique soreness in his Sept. 18 start against the Philadelphia Phillies and was put on the injured list when he continued to feel discomfort before beginning a side session on Sept. 23. The NL Rookie of the Year candidate has gone 11-5 this year with a 2.67 ERA (1.83 FIP), a 0.99 WHIP and a 202:45 K:BB over 131 2/3 innings and 31 outings (20 starts) this year. The good news is that after sweeping the division-rival New York Mets this past weekend, the Braves control their own destiny now as far as winning the NL East and getting a first-round bye in the playoffs.
Atlanta Braves relief pitcher Kirby Yates (elbow) threw a bullpen session before the start of the three-game series against the New York Mets on Friday, Sept. 30, and he felt fine after the session. It's too early to know whether Yates might pitch again this year, but he continues to make progress to help him feel confident that his elbow won't be a lingering issue this offseason as he distances himself from his second Tommy John surgery. He felt discomfort after tossing a scoreless inning against the Mariners on Sept. 10 and was placed on the 15-day injured list after his elbow continued to bother him when he played catch on Sept. 16. The 35-year-old shouldn't be expected to contribute out of the Braves bullpen in the postseason.
New York Mets rookie third baseman Brett Baty (thumb) has been cleared for baseball activities and has been hitting flips. He's scheduled to progress to hitting off a machine soon, and this Thursday marks five weeks since his right thumb surgery to fix a torn UCL. The 22-year-old will not be able to make it back for the final three games of the regular season, and it remains to be seen if he'll be able to rejoin the team for their postseason run. He had played in just 11 major-league games before his injury, going 7-for-38 (.184) with two home runs, five RBI and four runs scored. Veteran Eduardo Escobar has been manning the hot corner for the Mets with Baty injured, but Baty could be a nice power option for the Mets in the playoffs if he can avoid any setbacks.
New York Mets right-hander Tommy Hunter (back) is eligible to return from the injured list on the final day of the regular season, but it's unlikely the Mets would activate him for a single game. Instead, he'll receive regular treatment on his back and stay in shape in case the Mets want him for their playoff roster. Hunter pitched in a simulated game before the team's Oct. 1 game against the Atlanta Braves, throwing one inning against members of the team's taxi squad. The 36-year-old hasn't pitched in the big leagues since Sept. 14, but he was effective during the regular season in just 22 1/3 innings pitched, posting a 2.42 ERA (4.28 FIP), a 1.21 WHIP and 22 strikeouts in his 18 relief appearances.
New York Mets outfielder Starling Marte (finger) still has no clear timetable for a returns, and it could be probable that he will miss the final three games of the regular season this week and attempt to rejoin the team for the playoffs. Marte had a CT scan on Sept. 25 that "showed improved healing" in his finger, but his finger remained immobilized in a splint three days later. Manager Buck Showalter said on Oct. 1 that some of Marte's soreness has subsided, but not enough for him to grip a bat or ball yet. With the Mets now looking likely to play in the wild-card round that begins on Friday, Oct. 7, Marte might not even be ready for that weekend series. The 33-year-old veteran last played for the Mets on Sept. 6.
Colorado Rockies relief pitcher Daniel Bard was asked to throw multiple innings during Sunday's contest against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Bard was fantastic as he struck out six batters while allowing two hits in the win. This notched his 33rd save of the season, which is quite impressive for the 37-year-old reliever. The Rockies aren't very good, so Bard's success hasn't been noticed as much as Edwin Diaz. Despite that, Bard has quietly been one of the best relievers in baseball.
San Diego Padres starting pitcher Blake Snell looked strong on the mound during Sunday's game against the Chicago White Sox. The left-hander went six innings, allowing three hits, and struck out six batters. Despite his success, Snell was saddled with the tough-luck 2-1 loss on Sunday. He'll finish his regular season with a 3.38 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 171/51 K/BB ratio across 128 innings. The Padres are hopeful that Snell can carry this success into the postseason.
Oakland Athletics catcher Shea Langeliers had himself a nice day at the plate during Sunday's game against the Seattle Mariners. The 24-year-old hasn't been too hot with the bat this season, but put together a nice outing here. Langeliers blasted two home runs in what ended up being a 10-0 blowout victory over the Mariners. On paper, Langeliers isn't doing a whole lot at the plate, but is worth holding in dynasty formats. The future is bright and this is only the beginning of his career.
San Francisco Giants third baseman Evan Longoria (hand) is set to undergo X-rays following Sunday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The veteran infielder was hit by the ball in the hand while in the field. He wasn't removed from the game, but he likely would've been taken out if his spot in the batting order came up. His availability for Monday's game against the San Diego Padres is unknown. At this point, it's likely that the Giants take the cautious approach and rest Longoria.
Atlanta Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson continued his hot stretch at the plate during Sunday's game against the New York Mets. Swanson kicked off his game with a solo home run off right-hander Chris Bassitt in the opening frame. The 28-year-old finished 1-for-3 on the day with a walk. His power surge has helped the Braves climb to a two game lead over the Mets in the division. Swanson is hitting .277/.329/.448 with 25 homers, 96 RBI and 18 stolen bases this season.
Atlanta Braves relief pitcher Kenley Jansen slammed the door on the New York Mets for the third game in a row. The 35-year-old needed only seven pitches to retire all of the Mets hitters in the ninth inning during Sunday's game. His save counts as his 40th on the season in 47 attempts, which is fairly solid. This is a nice milestone for the veteran reliever who has played a big part in the Braves season. He'll look to add on a few more saves before the season is over.
Minnesota Twins relief pitcher Trevor Megill (oblique) exited early during Sunday's game against the Detroit Tigers. The 28-year-old bounced a warmup pitch during the seventh inning. He was immediately lifted after that for precautionary reasons due to oblique tightness. Megill has a 4.80 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 49/17 K/BB ratio across 45 innings this season. His 2022 campaign could very well be done after suffering that injury.
Dodgers' SP Tyler Anderson recorded 10 strikeouts in 5 innings but took the loss in a 4-1 loss to the Rockies on Sunday, Oct. 2.
Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Blake Treinen (shoulder) was able to play catch without any issues on Sunday. The 34-year-old is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Monday. The right-hander has been sidelined since early September due to tightness in his pitching shoulder. It sounds like Treinen is making progress and could return for the start of the postseason. This would be a nice boost for the Dodgers who have been without Treinen for a majority of the season.
Cleveland Guardians relief pitcher Emmanuel Clase has been nearly unhittable all season long. On Sunday, the right-hander was called upon to protect a two-run lead over the Kansas City Royals. The 24-year-old needed only 12 pitches to record his major league leading 41st save of the season. He's converted 41 of his 45 save opportunities to go along with a microscopic 1.38 ERA, 0.73 WHIP and 75/10 K/BB ratio across 71 2/3 innings. There's still a few games left in the regular season for Clase to add onto his total.
