Twins activated OF Aaron Hicks from the 15-day disabled list.
Hicks missed the last two weeks with a left hamstring strain. He'll be relegated to a corner outfield spot with Byron Buxton handling center. Torii Hunter could be pushed into a backup role.
Corey Kluber (hamstring) scratched from start

Corey Kluber has been scratched from Friday's scheduled start due to a right hamstring strain.
It's not clear when Kluber was injured, but it could cost him an additional start after Friday. Josh Tomlin will move up a day to start Friday. The Indians are clinging to faint Wild Card hopes, so it's certainly rotten news for them.

Mark Teixeira | NYY
(September 4, 2015 11:22 AM EDT)
Yankees placed 1B Mark Teixeira on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 27, with a right shin bone bruise.
The Yankees threw Teixeira's fantasy owners a bone here, as DL moves are rarely made in September. The transaction occurred because they wanted to bring back reliever Nick Rumbelow before his 10-day waiting period was up. Teixeira is getting around on crutches at the moment and is expected to miss at least a couple weeks.
Mets, Boras at odds over Harvey's workload
Matt Harvey | NYM
(September 4, 2015 11:12 AM EDT)
CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mets and Matt Harvey's agent, Scott Boras, are disagreeing about what Harvey's innings limit should be.
Boras says that doctors advised a 180-inning limit for Harvey before the season, but general manager Sandy Alderson is contending that the pitcher has had a "soft" innings limit all along. Harvey is sitting at 166 1/3 innings currently. The Mets plan to skip one more of the right-hander's starts but have no plans to shut him down. Boras can be upset all he wants if/when Harvey surpasses the 180-inning threshold, but he has no recourse here.

(September 4, 2015 11:00 AM EDT)
Phillies purchased the contract of OF Brian Bogusevic from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Bogusevic has hit .295/.360/.426 with 12 homers and 24 steals for Lehigh Valley this season. He'll provide depth with Domonic Brown's (concussion) situation up in the air.

Kyle Schwarber | CHC
(September 4, 2015 10:59 AM EDT)
Kyle Schwarber will be sidelined for at least 3-5 days after being diagnosed with a right rib cage strain.
Well, it could have been worse. Schwarber will be re-evaluated in 3-5 days to see how much progress he's made and could return to the lineup at that time. The impressive rookie injured his ribs when he dove after a ball Tuesday and felt soreness the following day while taking batting practice.

(September 4, 2015 10:55 AM EDT)
Padres assistant general manager Josh Stein said Thursday that Yonder Alonso (back) will be sidelined for a "couple more days."
Alonso hasn't played since exiting Tuesday's game with lower back tightness. It sounds unlikely that he'll see any action for this weekend's series against the Dodgers.
