Mets put Jose Reyes on DL
Jose Reyes was placed on the 10-day disabled list Thursday by the New York Mets with a sore left ribcage. Reyes doesn't consider his injury serious. "It's better to take a few days than miss the rest of the season," Reyes said Thursday. Fellow infielder Wilmer Flores remained out of the lineup against the Yankees with a similar injury. Both players sat out Wednesday as well.
NY Yank. 18.8.17
Yankees place Cooper on DL
The Yankees put first baseman Garrett Cooper on the 10-day disabled list Thursday with tendinitis in his left hamstring. Cooper was acquired in a trade with Milwaukee on July 13 to help shore up the position. He is batting .326 with six RBI in 13 games for New York. With projected regular Greg Bird sidelined by an ankle injury most of the year, the Yankees have started nine players at first base this season.
Nationals place Goodwin on disabled list
The Washington Nationals placed outfielder Brian Goodwin on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday with a left groin strain. Goodwin left Sunday's first game of a doubleheader against the San Francisco Giants with tightness in his groin after stealing a base in the eighth inning. The move is retroactive to Aug. 14.
The 26-year-old Goodwin joins a list of Nationals outfielders currently sidelined with injuries - Bryce Harper (hyperextended knee), Ryan Raburn (trapezius strain), Jayson Werth (foot contusion) and Adam Eaton (torn ACL).
Mesoraco sidelined 3-6 weeks
Cincinnati Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco will be out three to six weeks after he broke a bone in his left foot Monday. Mesoraco, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday, was hit by a pitch from Chicago Cubs starter Jose Quintana in the second inning of a 15-5 loss at Wrigley Field. Mesoraco is hitting .213 in 56 games with six homers and 14 RBI.
Astros put McCann on the 10-day DL
Houston Astros catcher Brian McCann was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a sore right knee, the team announced Monday. McCann's injury is the second in short order for the catchers with the Astros, who sent Evan Gattis to the disabled list with a concussion sustained when he was hit on the head by a backswing on Thursday.
Arenado out with bruised left hand
Colorado Rockies slugger Nolan Arenado says he feared the worst when he took an 88-mph fastball on the left hand Sunday. X-rays were negative, and the injury was diagnosed as a bruise, which took a little sting out of the pitch. Following the Rockies' 5-3 loss , Arenado said his hand was swollen and stiff, but he hopes to be sidelined for only a couple of days and avoid a stint on the disabled list. The All-Star third baseman has missed only three games this season and is batting .311.
Harper tears ACL and PCL
Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper, the National League MVP in 2015, left the game in the first inning Saturday night against the San Francisco Giants with a left knee injury after his left foot slipped on the first base bag as he tried to beat out a groundball to first baseman Ryder Jones. According to reports, preliminary tests by Nationals doctors reveal that Harper has a torn ACL and PCL. An MRI was scheduled for Sunday.
Mariners put Paxton on disabled list
Seattle Mariners left-hander James Paxton was placed on the disabled list Friday due to a strained left pectoral muscle. He is expected to be sidelined at least three weeks. Paxton, who is 12-3 with a 2.78 ERA, won seven consecutive starts before receiving a no-decision on Thursday night. He was AL Pitcher of the Month for July after going 6-0 with a 1.37 ERA.
Blue Jays place Cole on DL
Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Taylor Cole was put on the 10-day disabled list Thursday after suffering a broken right toe when he was hit by a comebacker during his major-league debut against the New York Yankees on Wednesday night.
The Blue Jays recalled right-hander Chris Smith from Triple-A Buffalo to take his place. Also, Blue Jays designated hitter Kendrys Morales was a late scratch from the game against the Yankees on Thursday night because of illness.

League format : Baseball : MLB 2017
During the regular season, games are played mainly against teams within each league through an unbalanced schedule, which heavily favors divisional play. Ten teams advance to postseason, the three division champions from each league, together with two wildcard teams, who will play each other, and the winner of this game advancing to the Division Series.
Three division winners and the wild-card team meet in a best-of-five playoff round to determine the final two teams from each league, who then play in the League Championship Series. The champions of each league meet in the World Series to declare an overall Major League Baseball winner. The World Series and League Championship Series are best-of-seven playoff rounds. The league that wins the All-Star Game is given the home field advantage in the World Series.
