However, he feels healthy heading into the offseason and expects to be back to 100 percent in time for spring training in 2023.

    Huff went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in Thursday's 10-9 extra-innings loss to the Mariners.

    Huff has homered twice in his last three games, and he's up to four for the year. The 24-year-old has gone 8-for-35 (.229) since rejoining the Rangers on Sept. 5. He's slashing .250/.311/.384 with 10 RBI, eight runs scored and a stolen base through 122 plate appearances this season.

    10h ago

    Smith went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Padres.

    Smith continues to see the ball well, as he's posted six multi-hit efforts in his last 11 games. The catcher supplied an insurance run with his solo shot in the eighth inning Thursday, which was his fifth homer in September. He's up to 24 on the year, one shy of his career high, while adding 86 RBI, 66 runs scored, a stolen base, 25 doubles, three triples and a .265/.349/.475 slash line through 133 contests.

    After getting a couple of nights off, Stassi got the start Thursday and capitalized with a solo home run in the eighth inning to extend the Angels' lead to 4-0. The long ball was Stassi's ninth on the season and first this month. He is slashing .182/.268/.307 through 100 games this season and should continue to be part of the Angels' catching rotation to close the season.

    Barnhart is batting just .221 this season, but he managed to provide a nice offensive boost Thursday. It was the catcher's fourth three-hit effort of the year and his second this month. Barnhart may see a few more starts in relief of Eric Haase before the season wraps up, and he's unlikely to provide much more fantasy value.

His .261/.337/.415 slash line with nine home runs in 119 games was a little below his previous norms, although he set a new career-best in games played.

    Lowe didn't have a great game, but he was able to get the Rangers within a run with his seventh-inning blast. He'd gone 10 games without a homer, batting .263 with just two RBI and three runs scored in that span. The first baseman is up to 26 long balls on the year while adding 74 RBI, 71 runs scored, two stolen bases, 26 doubles, three triples and a .304/.357/.496 slash line through 150 contests.

    Freeman was on the back end of a double-steal that also saw Trea Turner swipe third in the sixth inning. The theft extended Freeman's career high to 13 stolen bases in 16 attempts this year. He's now gone seven games without a multi-hit effort -- he's only had four such stretches this year, which contributes to his lofty .327 batting average. He's added a .920 OPS, 20 home runs, 97 RBI, 113 runs scored, 46 doubles and two triples through 153 contests.

    Semien accounted for two of the Rangers' five homers in the game, and he was one of three players across both teams to leave the yard twice. The infielder hit a two-run blast in the third inning, a solo shot in the seventh and a sacrifice fly in the 11th to account for his four RBI. He's up to 26 homers, 82 RBI, 99 runs scored, 24 stolen bases and a .255/.311/.444 slash line through 154 contests.

    Toro swiped third base in the 10th inning but was left aboard. It was just his second steal in 104 contests this season after he swiped six bags in 95 games in 2021. The 25-year-old infielder has added a .183/.238/.320 slash line, nine home runs, 30 RBI, 34 runs scored, 13 doubles and a triple while slipping into a reserve role since Eugenio Suarez returned from the injured list.

    Rodgers had a minimal stay on the injured list, but he couldn't break out of his slump in his return. He's now stuck in an 0-for-15 skid that dates back to Sept. 13, and there's no guarantee he sees an everyday role over the last week of the season.

    Proctor made the start at second base Thursday. He hit a grand slam in his first at-bat, which counted as his first home run and second hit in the majors since his first call-up Sept. 24. He's hit 12 homers in each of his last two minor-league seasons. Proctor should continue to get some playing time as an infielder, as his natural position of catcher is occupied by Joey Bart and Austin Wynns.

    Baez played a big role in the blowout win with his 16th home run of the season leading the way. He's still just over half of the way to the 31 long balls he hit in 2021, as his production has dipped across the board in his first year with the Tigers.

    8h ago

    Baumann allowed two earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out two across four innings Thursday against the Red Sox. He did not factor into the decision.

    Baumann made his second consecutive turn through the rotation and was limited to 74 pitches as a result. Both of the earned runs against him came in the fourth inning, when he allowed two doubles and a single. Baumann will likely get a final start prior to the close of the regular season, and he's allowed a combined four earned runs with a 4:2 K:BB across his last two starts -- spanning eight innings.

    Angels' Shohei Ohtani: Flirts with no-no
    11h ago

    Ohtani (15-8) earned the win Thursday against the Athletics with eight shutout innings. He recorded 10 strikeouts while surrendering two hits and one walk.

    Ohtani was masterful Thursday and came four outs away from recording his first career no-hitter before a base hit from Conner Capel spoiled the bid. His 10 strikeouts on the night were the highest he's recorded since July 28, and the win gives him five in his last six starts. He has a 2.35 ERA and 213 strikeouts with 15 wins on the season, and when considering his strong offensive season, he should challenge Aaron Judge for the AL MVP.
