Aaron Boone says the Yankees are hopeful Didi Gregorius' (heel) DL stint will be a short one. They'll know more in the next couple days as he continues to be monitored in New York. But the shortstop is feeling better. Gary Sánchez also is looking at getting into rehab games Thursday.

Eugenio Suarez starting at shortstop is merely the Reds giving Jose Peraza a day off, but I like it as an occasional, rest-of-season experiment. The team is going to need to find space for Nick Senzel somewhere in 2019, so it's a good idea to get a read on Suarez there now.

Giancarlo Stanton really seems at ease today. That's not to suggest he's typically uptight. Just seems even more comfortable as he's settling back into familiar territory. Asked him about that. "It's weird (being back), but why make it a lot worse on myself and not enjoy it?"

The Oakland Athletics have 10-1 odds to win the World Series at Westgate. I repeat: 10-1. They opened at 80-1, tied for second-worst odds.

As the Yankees move forward with no Didi Gregorius, Gleyber Torres will be at short, Neil Walker will be at second, and the heart of the order features Miguel Andújar: Gardner LF Stanton RF Hicks CF Andújar 3B Bird 1B Torres SS Walker 2B Romine C Tanaka SP

Watch Ben Zobrist discuss the Cubs acquiring Daniel Murphy on Tuesday.

Daniel Murphy is probably going to play more than you think in Chicago, since there are so many multi-position players on that matchup-driven offense. Addison Russell is the one at greatest risk of a PA drop: he's hitting .213/.272/.272 since July 1. Javier Baez can play short.

Adding Matt Adams probably means an Adams/Jedd Gyorko platoon, with Matt Carpenter shifting to third when Adams starts, only adversely impacting Gyorko's fantasy value. It's also not great for the defense, though it'd be worse with Carpenter at second — Kolten Wong has 18 DRS!

Welcome to Giancarlo Stanton's old home. In early work on the field at Marlins Park, Ronald Torreyes and Gleyber Torres are getting work at shortstop as life without Didi Gregorius begins (Torreyes also was getting grounders at third).

Yankees announce they placed Didi Gregorius on the 10-day disabled list (retroactive to 8/20) with a left heel contusion; recalled Luke Voit from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

The DL move for Didi Gregorius has happened. The Yankees today placed the shortstop on the 10-day disabled list with a left heel bruise, retroactive to Monday. Taking his place on the roster will be 1B Luke Voit, who is being recalled from Triple-A.

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen, on his struggles tonight: "Everything was flat."

Kenley Jansen has become the seventh different Dodgers reliever to be tagged with a loss in the last 10 games. They lose to the Cardinals, 5-3.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

The only other time Kenley Jansen allowed multiple home runs in a regular-season game, per ESPN Stats & Info: May 2013.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Or ... not? Kenley Jansen served up back-to-back home runs to the first two batters he faced, Jedd Gyorko and Matt Carpenter, in his return from an irregular heartbeat. Jansen had allowed just 6 home runs in 54 1/3 innings all year.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

"California Love" blares from the Dodger Stadium speakers and Kenley Jansen trots out to the mound with this game still tied in the ninth inning. A welcomed sight, to say the least.
