  • Matt Albers moved to 60-day DL
    Astros transferred RHP Matt Albers from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move clears space on the 40-man roster for Gregory Petit. Albers has been out since late April with right shoulder tendinitis and isn't close to returning.

  • Teixeira (lat) could swing a bat on Friday
    Mark Teixeira (lat) could swing a bat as soon as Friday.

    Advice: Teixeira hasn't played since Sunday due to a lower left lat strain but said Friday that he's feeling much better and looks like he'll avoid the disabled list. "I hope to be back soon," he said. The Yankees' first baseman is batting .231/.330/.443 with 17 homers and 48 RBI over 76 games this season.

  • Five teams have talked to Dodgers about Kemp
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that five teams "are said to have shown interest, or at least talked to" the Dodgers about Matt Kemp.

    Advice: Rival executives have told Heyman that they "have the feeling the Dodgers are ready to move on" from Kemp. It's no surprise, of course, as they have a logjam of outfielders and Kemp hasn't been thrilled about moving from center to left field. Kemp sports a decent .268/.333/.422 batting line with eight homers and 38 RBI this season, but the Dodgers will undoubtedly have to pick up a large portion of the $107 million Kemp is owed after this season in order to find a taker for him.

  • Gus Schlosser optioned to Triple-A
    Braves optioned RHP Gus Schlosser to Triple-A Gwinnett.

  • Anthony Varvaro back from paternity leave
    Braves activated RHP Anthony Varvaro from the paternity leave list.

    Advice: Gus Schlosser has been sent down in a corresponding move. Varvaro has been excellent for the Braves this season, posting a 2.29 ERA and 39/9 K/BB ratio over 39 1/3 innings.

  • Blue Jays interested in Brandon Barnes
    Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports that the Blue Jays have been scouting Brandon Barnes.

    Advice: Saunders notes that the Jays have "not yet put together a deal for Barnes," but a trade of the outfielder "at the right price, could make sense." Barnes is only a career .237/.285/.345 hitter over parts of three major league seasons, but he's a gifted defensive outfielder who can play all three spots.

  • Edwin Jackson (hand) feeling fine
    Edwin Jackson does not have any lingering effects after leaving Thursday's start with cramping in his right hand.

    Advice: He'll be fine for his next scheduled outing on Tuesday against the Rockies. Jackson has posted an ugly 5.68 ERA and 1.56 WHIP over 21 starts this season.

  • Jeff Manship outrighted to Triple-A
    Phillies sent RHP Jeff Manship outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Nationals activated OF Eury Perez from the 60-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: Perez's fractured left toe has healed, but he'll remain at Syracuse instead of joining the big club. The speedy outfielder hasn't appeared in the majors this season.

  • Belt (concussion) feeling no improvement
    Brandon Belt (concussion) admitted Thursday that he's yet to feeling any improvement with his post-concussion symptoms.

    Advice: Belt will visit with a specialist this weekend in San Francisco. The first baseman has been sidelined for the last week after being hit with an errant throw during batting practice and his return is nowhere in sight. Perhaps there will be more clarity with his situation after he's seen the specialist.

  • Eric Hosmer enters as defensive replacement
    Eric Hosmer entered Thursday's game as a defensive replacement.

    Advice: Hosmer's bruised right hand leaves him unable to swing a bat at the moment, as he was pinch-hit for by Raul Ibanez. He could be limited to defensive work for a few more days.

  • Dayan Viciedo goes hitless in return
    Dayan Viciedo went 0-for-5 at the plate in his return to action Thursday.

    Advice: Viciedo missed Wednesday's game with tightness in his left lower hamstring, but it turned out to only be a one-day thing. Now hitless in his last 15 at-bats, Viciedo's batting line is down to .233/.283/.395.

  • Richards gets knocked around in loss to DET
    Garrett Richards surrendered four runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five in Thursday's setback against the Tigers.

    Advice: This was the first time Richards has allowed more than three earned runs in a start since May 30, the first time he's surrendered as many as seven hits since May 19, and the first time he hasn't completed seven innings of work since June 20. The right-hander has dazzled in his breakout campaign to the tune of an 11-3 record and 2.62 ERA. Don't be surprised if his production drops off, however -- Richards has never thrown more than 157 innings in a season, and he now sits at 137 1/3. The good news is that Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said earlier this week that the club has no plans to limit his workload.

  • Iwakuma yields 4 runs in loss to the Orioles
    Hisashi Iwakuma gave up four runs on seven hits over seven innings in a loss to the Orioles on Thursday.

    Advice: Iwakuma struck out five and walked none. The Japanese left-hander was lit up for 10 runs over nine innings (10.00 ERA) over his last two starts of June, but he'd given up only five runs total over his four subsequent starts entering tonight's mediocre showing. In truth, he was great for six shutout innings and awful in a four-run third inning capped by a three-run Delmon Young homer. Iwakuma will take an 8-5 record and 3.09 ERA into a date in Cleveland next week.

  • Santana reaches base four times in a loss
    Carlos Santana singled twice and walked twice in six plate appearances as the Indians lost in 14 innings to the Royals on Thursday.

    Advice: Santana was the Indians' only consistent source of offense on Thursday, but they were only able to bring him around once -- to score the tying run in the ninth inning. The first baseman has had a nice turnaround after a sluggish start to the season, now slashing .218/.357/.400 with 15 home runs and 42 RBI.

  • Edwin Jackson exits with hand cramp
    Edwin Jackson left Thursday's start against the Padres in the sixth inning with cramping in his right hand.

    Advice: Jackson allowed five runs on seven hits and a walk before leaving and was already at 87 pitches, so he wasn't going to be in for much longer, anyway. He should be fine for his next outing.
    Yesterday, 7:37 pm
  • Edwin Jackson leaves with apparent injury
    Edwin Jackson left Thursday's start against the Padres in the sixth inning with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Jackson allowed the first two batters to reach in the sixth before exiting the field with the Cubs' trainer. An update on his condition should be available shortly. He allowed five runs on seven hits and a walk before leaving.

  • DL stint possible for Mark Teixeira (lat)
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that a decision on whether Mark Teixeira (lat) will be placed on the disabled list will likely come Friday.

    Advice: "It's just seeing how he feels after three or four days," Girardi said. "Then we'll decide if we think it's going to be the near future that he would play or we're going to need the 15-day [disabled list]. If it's going to be 12, 13, 14 days, it probably makes sense to get a player here." Girardi added that it's unlikely Teixeira will play Friday, but "you want to feel that there's progress and that he feels better to start doing some stuff." Teixeira hasn't played since Sunday due to a lower left lat strain.
    Yesterday, 5:35 pm
  • Cubs trying to trade struggling Edwin Jackson
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Cubs are "trying to trade" Edwin Jackson.

    Advice: It won't be easy, as Jackson has posted a 5.22 ERA over 51 starts for the Cubs and is due about $26 million through the 2016 season. However, the right-hander is durable and has flashed upside in the past, so it's possible the Cubs might find a taker as long as they're willing to eat most of the contract. The Yankees have been mentioned as possible suitors of Jackson, though that might change now that they've acquired Chris Capuano.

  • Hosmer (hand) will not swing bat Thursday
    Eric Hosmer (hand) will not swing a bat Thursday.

    Advice: Hosmer got hit in the right hand by a pitch on Sunday before returning to the lineup Wednesday, but he was forced to make an early exit due to "decreased grip strength." He might have to miss a few days to get back to 100 percent.
    Yesterday, 2:35 pm
  • Albers (shoulder) not close to return
    Matt Albers (shoulder) isn't close to returning to action.

    Advice: Albers has made slow progress since he landed on the disabled list in late April with right shoulder tendinitis. Similar to the Jesse Crain situation, Astros GM Jeff Luhnow said Thursday that the hope is he'll be ready to throw off a mound in the next 10 days, but he's still a ways off from pitching with the big club again.

  • Giants 'growing more concerned' about Belt
    According to beat reporter Andrew Baggarly, the Giants are "growing more concerned" about Brandon Belt's concussion.

    Advice: Giants manager Bruce Bochy told reporters Tuesday that Belt was "making progress" and might soon be able to resume some baseball activities, but the first baseman was sent back to the team hotel on Wednesday evening in Philadelphia after exhibiting lingering concussion-related symptoms. There is no timetable for his return at this point.

  • Hosmer removed from game with hand injury
    Eric Hosmer was pulled from Wednesday's game against the Cubs with "decreased grip strength in his hand."

    Advice: That was the announcement from the Kansas City medical staff. Hosmer got hit by a pitch on Sunday and sat out Monday and Tuesday with what was called a right hand contusion. He obviously needs a little more rest.

    Braves recalled RHP Gus Schlosser from Triple-A Gwinnett.

  • Dayan Viciedo scratched with tight hamstring
    Dayan Viciedo was scratched from Wednesday's lineup due to tightness in his left lower hamstring.

    Advice: It's not clear when Viciedo suffered the injury, nor is it known how long he might be sidelined. The White Sox should have an update on the outfield's status later Wednesday. Moises Sierra is covering for Viciedo in right field.

  • Hosmer back in Royals' lineup Wednesday
    Eric Hosmer is back in the Royals' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Manager Ned Yost had indicated a desire to sit Hosmer until at least Thursday, but the first baseman has evidently talked his way back into the lineup a day early. Hosmer missed two games due to a bruised right hand, an ailment that was a result of a hit by pitch Sunday.
    Wednesday, 8:15 am
  • Hosmer (hand) won't play until Thursday
    Eric Hosmer (hand) isn't expected to return to the Royals' lineup until at least Thursday.

    Advice: Hosmer missed a second straight game Tuesday with a bruised right hand, and he's expected to sit out Wednesday, as well. The first baseman suffered the injury when he was hit by a pitch Sunday and the Royals don't want the ailment to linger. "That's why I'm hoping this doesn't linger," manager Ned Yost said. "Give him a couple days now. It might save him. Instead of battling through it, and it affecting him for three weeks, instead of a week. Get it to where it's manageable."

  • Santana's three XBH lead Tribe past Twins
    Carlos Santana went 4-for-5 with a home run and nine total bases as the Indians cruised past the Twins 8-2 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Santana had just three extra-base hits in his previous nine games, but the 28-year-old added two doubles to go with his 15th home run of the year. If anything, he deserved to have an even better night from a statistical standpoint -- the homer came with nobody on, and his other three hits drove in just one run combined. The four-hit evening raised his season line to .214/.353/.401.

  • Belt still a couple days away from activity
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday that Brandon Belt (concussion) is "making progress" but is still a couple days away from resuming baseball activities.

    Advice: Belt was placed on the 7-day concussion DL Monday after being hit in the head by a thrown ball Saturday during batting practice. Concussions are always tricky, but it does sound like he has a chance to return relatively quickly. The Giants are using Buster Posey and Adam Duvall at first base while Belt is out.

  • Angels won't limit Garrett Richards' workload
    Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said Monday that the club has no plans to temporarily shut down Garrett Richards in order to limit his workload.

    Advice: Richards is already at 131 1/3 innings, just a tad shy of the 145 innings he threw last season. He has never thrown more than 157 innings in a season before in pro ball, but Dipoto said there haven't been any discussions about giving him a break. "Not at all," said Dipoto. "Garrett has thrown from end to end in a season. His innings have not escalated to the point where they're 200-plus, but Garrett throws the ball as easily as anybody you'll ever see. It's not a violent delivery, it's not a violent package. He maintains velocity pretty easily." Richards is currently on pace for 216 2/3 innings and could pitch more if the Angels play deep into October.

  • Eric Hosmer scratched due to bruised hand
    Eric Hosmer was scratched from Monday's lineup due to a right hand contusion.

    Advice: Hosmer was hit by a pitch on Sunday and remains sore. He doesn't have any broken bones, though, and should be considered day-to-day. Billy Butler is playing first base Monday, while Salvador Perez is in the DH spot.
    Monday, 4:22 pm
  • Iwakuma to start Thursday vs. Orioles
    Hisashi Iwakuma has had his next start pushed back to Thursday against the Orioles.

    Advice: Iwakuma was previously scheduled to start Wednesday vs. the Mets, but the Mariners have decided to push him back a day. Wednesday's starter hasn't been announced, but Taijuan Walker is a possibility.

  • Teixeira out 3-4 days due to mild lat strain
    Mark Teixeira will be sidelined for the next 3-4 days because of a mild lower lat strain.

    Advice: The Yankees are optimistic that the first baseman will not require a disabled list stint. Teixeira has tallied 17 home runs and 48 RBI in 76 games this season but has struggled to stay healthy for extended periods.

  • Giants place Brandon Belt on concussion DL
    Giants placed 1B Brandon Belt on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

    Advice: Belt was struck in the head by a thrown ball Saturday during batting practice and began showing symptoms of a concussion a few hours later. It's not clear how long he'll be out. Adam Duvall was called up from Triple-A Fresno on Monday to provide depth at first base.

The Giants won't make a roster move Sunday, but it's possible one could come prior to the beginning of the series against the Phillies on Monday.

  • Garrett Richards goes eight strong
    Garrett Richards limited the Mariners to one run and three hits in eight innings on Saturday.

    Advice: Richards wasn't involved in the decision in his latest gem, so his seven-game winning streak is still intact. He's allowed a total of four hits in 15 innings against the Mariners this season, and he's 11-2 with a 2.47 ERA overall. Yeah, he really should have been an All-Star.
