Randy Arozarena (quad) is absent from the Rays’ starting lineup for Sunday’s AL East showdown against the Blue Jays.
Arozarena will miss his second game in a row after he exited Friday’s contest early with right quad tightness. The Rays have locked up a spot in the playoffs so fantasy managers should expect the team to take it easy with their star outfielder over the final week of the regular season. Harold Ramírez will fill in as the left fielder on Sunday.

Trevor Story is not in the Red Sox’s starting lineup for Sunday’s game against the White Sox.
Story has struggled mightly since returning from the injured list in early August. The 30-year-old is hitting .188/.228/.297 with two homers and a dreadfully high 33.8 percent strikeout rate. With only a week to go, it remains unlikely that the veteran will find his stride. Pablo Reyes is batting seventh and will play shortstop in his absence.

K. Barraclough - RP
Red Sox designate RHP Kyle Barraclough for assignment.
The veteran reliever turned starter pitched well in Triple-A but struggled to a 12.91 ERA and 2.61 WHIP across 7 2/3 innings with the big league club. He will likely be on the hunt for another minor league contract this winter.

N. Robertson - RP
Red Sox optioned RHP Nick Robertson to Triple-A Worcester.
The 24-year-old posted a 6.33 ERA, 1.83 WHIP and 25/9 K/BB ratio over 21 1/3 innings with the big league club this season. Right-hander Zack Kelly will take his place in the Red Sox’ bullpen for the last week of the season.

Z. Kelly - RP
Red Sox activated RHP Zack Kelly from the 60-day injured list.
Kelly has missed most of the season as he recovered from below surgery in early April. The 28-year-old pitched well out of Boston’s bullpen last season, posting a 3.95 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 11/4 K/BB ratio over 13 2/3 innings. He will likely pitch in lower-leverage situations during the final week of the season.
Added 2:23 pm (EST)
Tim Anderson is not in the White Sox’ starting lineup for Sunday’s showdown against the Red Sox.
Anderson hits the bench after going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Saturday’s low scoring affair in Boston. On the season, the 30-year-old is hitting .248/.290/.300 with one homer and 13 stolen bases across 507 plate appearances. Elvis Andrus will bat leadoff as the White Sox’ shortstop in his absence.

N. Marte - SS
Noelvi Marte is not in the Reds’ starting lineup for Sunday’s finale against the Pirates.
With the Reds facing a right-hander, Jake Fraley takes over as the designated hitter with Christian Encarnacion-Strand manning the hot corner in a must-win game for Cincinnati on Sunday. The rookie is hitting .293/.350/.380 with one home run and six stolen bases across 100 plate appearances.

White Sox recalled RHP Declan Cronin from Triple-A Charlotte.
Cronin will take Jesse Scholten’s spot on the active roster. The 26-year-old posted an 11.74 ERA across six appearances with the White Sox earlier this season and will likely be used in lower-leverage situations for the last week of the regular season.
