Analysis: Montero was placed on the suspended list Sept. 1 after a heated confrontation with cross-checker Butch Baccala in the stands at a minor league game in Boise, Idaho. Montero was on a rehab assignment.

9/29/2014 Felix Hernandez, P (Sea) Hernandez gave up one hit over 5 1-3 shutout innings of a 4-1 win over the Angels in his season finale Sunday.

9/29/2014 Sonny Gray, P (Oak) Gray recorded his 14th win in his final start of the season in Sunday's 4-0 victory at Texas, though it was just his second win in his last 12 outings.

Analysis: Gray closed his season by going 2-7 with a 3.83 ERA over his final 12 starts - still a respectable ERA, but a far cry from the 2.65 mark he had posted previously on the year.
9/29/2014 Yordano Ventura, P (KC) Ventura gave up four runs over just four innings in Kansas City's 6-4 win over the White Sox on Sunday.

Analysis: Konerko posted a .572 OPS while playing just 81 games this year - not exactly a fitting end to the career of one of the most productive hitters of his generation. He finishes with a .279 career average with 439 homers and 1,412 RBIs over 2,349 games.
9/29/2014 Alex Rodriguez, 3B (NYY) New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi says Rodriguez will have to show in spring training that he can still play.

Turning his attention to next season at a Yankee Stadium news conference Monday, Girardi said he expected Rodriguez to be a starter at third but cautioned, ''We've got to see where he's physically at.'' Rodriguez is signed for three additional seasons for a total of $61 million.
9/29/2014 Adam Eaton, CF (CWS) Eaton was 3 for 3 in Sunday's season finale against Kansas City, finishing with a batting average right at .300.

9/29/2014 Michael Pineda, P (NYY) Pineda matched his career high with 10 strikeouts over 6 1-3 innings Sunday, giving up one run and three hits in a 9-5 victory in Boston.

Analysis: Injuries limited Pineda to 13 starts but he was impressive when he was on the mound, going 5-5 with a 1.89 ERA.
9/29/2014 Clay Buchholz, P (Bos) Buchholz lost a career-worst 11th game in Sunday's 9-5 defeat against the Yankees, giving up four runs over six innings.
