Good morning, baseball fans!
Junior Guerra is done for the season:

Garrett Richards is confident he will pitch in 2017:
The next milestone for Richards is facing hitters, which he said is scheduled for Oct. 1. Then off to instrux. #Angels— Jeff Fletcher (@JeffFletcherOCR) September 17, 2016
Jason Vargas is back with the Royals:

Michael Roth heads to Triple-A:

Phillies shortstop J.P. Crawford had surgery on his knee but is expected to be healthy by the time Spring Training begins:
Crawford, who has emerged as one of the game’s 10 best prospects, didn’t join the Phillies this season but could make the club entering 2017.
Although he batted .244 in Triple-A, Crawford could be a valuable addition to Philadelphia’s lineup. He proved to be a patient hitter as he quickly progressed through the Phillies’ minor league system.
