  • Alberto Callaspo (hamstring) takes BP
    Alberto Callaspo (hamstring) took a successful round of batting practice Tuesday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's done so since landing on the DL. Callaspo has also done some running, though he's yet to run the bases. He's expected to be activated in the middle of next week if all goes well.

  • Andy Dirks resumes baseball activities
    Andy Dirks (back) has resumed baseball activities.

    Advice: Dirks was pulled off his rehab assignment earlier this month due to muscle inflammation in his surgically-repaired back. It's obviously good news that he's resuming activities, but there remains no timetable for his return.

  • Angels outright Ian Stewart to AAA Salt Lake
    Angels sent 3B Ian Stewart outright to Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Stewart was designated for assignment on July 19 and passed through waivers unclaimed. The 29-year-old has batted just .208/.310/.361 this season at the Triple-A level.

  • Erasmo Ramirez recalled for Tuesday start
    Mariners recalled RHP Erasmo Ramirez from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Ramirez will start for the Mariners on Tuesday night against the Mets. The 24-year-old right-hander has considerable upside, but he owns a 4.58 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in 11 starts this season at the major league level and probably isn't worth the risk in standard fantasy formats.

  • Geovany Soto (groin) heads back to the DL
    Rangers placed C Geovany Soto on the 15-day disabled list with a right groin strain.

    Advice: Soto lasted just three games on the Rangers' active roster. He missed the first three-and-a-half months of the 2014 season following knee surgery and will now likely be sidelined through mid-August. Robinson Chirinos will again serve as the primary catcher in Texas.

  • Blue Jays designate Mills for assignment
    Blue Jays designated LHP Brad Mills for assignment.

    Advice: As expected, the move clears a spot for Aaron Sanchez on the active roster. Mills was just claimed off waivers from the A's last week and could soon be on the move again.

  • Mills to be designated for assignment
    Brad Mills is expected to be designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

    Advice: The move will clear a spot for top prospect Aaron Sanchez, who is expected to join the team's bullpen. Mills was rocked for eight runs over two innings Monday night against the Red Sox.

  • Marquis lands on disabled list in Triple-A
    Jason Marquis has been placed on the disabled list at Triple-A Lehigh Valley due to a strained right oblique.

    Advice: Marquis' contract included an opt-out on July 31, but the injury figures to keep him around for a little while longer. The 35-year-old right-hander has a 2.22 ERA over his first four starts in Triple-A.

  • Yankees officially acquire 3B Chase Headley
    Yankees acquired 3B Chase Headley and cash considerations from the Padres for INF Yangervis Solarte and RHP Rafael De Paula.

    Advice: The deal is now official. Headley's stock has plummeted since his breakout season in 2012, but he's a worthwhile gamble for the Yankees given their current options at third base. The 30-year-old has swung the bat better of late and has good road numbers for his career, so it would be no surprise if he finishes his walk year on a high note.

  • Report: Yankees acquire Headley from Padres
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Yankees have acquired third baseman Chase Headley from the Padres.

    Advice: Neither team has confirmed the deal, but the Yankees will send infielder Yangervis Solarte and prospect right-hander right-hander Rafael De Paula to the Padres. New York will also receive $1 million from San Diego to help cover part of the nearly $4 million remaining on Headley's contract for this season.

  • Report: Yanks have checked in on John Danks
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Yankees have checked in with the White Sox about the availability of left-hander John Danks.

    Advice: There's nothing to indicate that the two sides are close to a deal, but Yankees general manager Brian Cashman hasn't made any secret about his desire to add starting pitching. Danks owns a 4.35 ERA and 87/46 K/BB ratio over 124 innings this season, so he's not quite the pitcher he once was. There's still around $34 million remaining on his contract, which runs through 2016. He has a six-team no-trade list, but it's unclear if the Yankees are on it.

  • Cowgill (nose) could return in a couple weeks
    Collin Cowgill (nose) expects to return from the disabled list in a couple of weeks.

    Advice: Cowgill landed on the disabled list prior to the All-Star break after he was hit by a pitch on July 12 and broke both his nose and his right thumb. He had stitches removed from his nose on Monday and is likely a few days away from swinging a bat.

  • Young leaves game with calf cramp
    Chris Young left Monday's game against the Mariners in the eighth inning due to a left calf cramp.

    Advice: Young suffered the injury running to first base in the top of the eighth inning. The hope is that it's not a big deal, but the Mets should know more Tuesday.
    Today, 5:38 am
  • Farquhar (elbow) returns to action
    Danny Farquhar (elbow) allowed an unearned run in one inning of work in his return to action Monday against the Mets.

    Advice: Farquhar was unavailable Sunday due to tenderness in his pitching elbow, but it's not a major concern. The 27-year-old has an excellent 2.68 ERA and 50/14 K/BB ratio over 43 2/3 innings this season.

  • Shoemaker K's 10 but still loses to Orioles
    Matt Shoemaker struck out 10 but fell to 7-3, allowing four runs over 5 2/3 innings as the Angels lost to the Orioles 4-2 on Monday.

    Advice: Shoemaker didn't walk a batter and surrendered five hits. He would have won this game, but couldn't figure out how to pitch to Adam Jones, against whom he served up a pair of two-run homers. The right-hander has shuffled between the rotation and bullpen all year, entering this contest 6-1 with a 4.15 ERA as a starter. Despite the loss, the Angels are the majors' best home team at 34-17.

  • Josh Willingham powers Twins to victory
    Josh Willingham went 2-for-3 with a go-ahead homer off Bryan Shaw in the eighth as the Twins edged the Indians 4-2 on Monday.

    Advice: Willingham had been in an 11-for-89 dry spell before tonight, with just one homer since June 25. The Twins sure would like to see him find his stroke again this week and give himself some trade value in advance of the deadline.
    Yesterday, 9:20 pm
  • Brad Mills gives up eight runs in relief
    Making his Blue Jays debut, Brad Mills was pummeled for eight runs in two innings of relief by the Red Sox on Monday.

    Advice: Mills had two quality starts in three tries for the A's before the Jeff Samardzija-Jason Hammel deal made him expendable; his one failure in that span was also against Boston. The Blue Jays merely paid the waiver price to bring him in last week, so one or two more bad outings and he'll likely be sent packing again.

  • Geovany Soto leaves with tight groin
    Geovany Soto left Monday's game versus the Yankees due to tightness in his right groin.

    Advice: Soto pulled up gimpy as he scored a run in the top of the sixth inning. The Rangers should provide an update on their catcher after the game. Robinson Chirinos will be in line for increased playing time if Soto is out for a while.

  • Ramirez to start Tuesday against the Mets
    Erasmo Ramirez will be recalled from Triple-A Tacoma to start Tuesday against the Mets.

    Advice: This confirms the speculation over the past day or so. Ramirez owns a 4.58 ERA over 11 starts with the Mariners this season. He's a shaky option in fantasy leagues.

  • Danks smoked by Astros, but takes no-decision
    John Danks allowed seven runs over 4 1/3 innings, but took a no-decision as the White Sox lost 11-7 on Sunday.

    Advice: Danks has been prone to this type of blow-up outing, but had looked better as of late, entering Sunday's start with a 2.73 ERA over his previous four outings. The Astros were able to bang out 12 hits, including home runs by Matt Dominguez and Jose Altuve. Danks did not issue a walk and struck out four as he watched his ERA balloon to 4.35. He'll try to bounce back against the Twins on the road on Friday.

  • Alberto Callaspo could return next week
    Alberto Callaspo (hamstring) thinks he'll be ready for activation just a couple days after he's eligible next Sunday.

    Advice: It's possible that Callaspo will play a few rehab games before the A's activate him. The veteran infielder has been on the shelf since mid-July with a strained right hamstring.

  • Danny Farquhar nursing tender elbow
    Danny Farquhar is unavailable Sunday due to tenderness in his pitching elbow.

    Advice: The reliever said that he could pitch, but he understands the Mariners wanting to play it safely. Consider Farquhar day-to-day for the time being.

  • Erasmo Ramirez to start on Tuesday
    Erasmo Ramirez is expected to be recalled to start on Tuesday against the Mets.

    Advice: The Mariners have decided to keep Taijuan Walker in the minors for now, creating another opportunity for Ramirez. The righty holds a 4.58 ERA in 11 starts for the M's this season.

  • Angels designate Ian Stewart for assignment
    Angels designated 3B Ian Stewart for assignment.

    Advice: The move was made to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for the newly-acquired Huston Street. The 29-year-old slugger hit just .176/.222/.382 with two homers and seven RBI in his 68 at-bats with the Angels this season.

  • Willingham continues struggles for Twins
    Josh Willingham went 0-for-3 with a strikeout and a walk Friday against the Rays.

    Advice: Willingham is now batting just .118 (10-for-85) with 34 strikeouts over his last 27 games. The 35-year-old offers pop and patience, but it's hard to see the Twins fetching much in a trade at this point.

  • Rangers activate Soto (knee) from DL
    Rangers activated C Geovany Soto from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Soto missed the entire first half following March knee surgery, but he's finally ready to make his season debut. He'll split playing time with Robinson Chirinos behind the plate now that he's back to full health.

  • Jays claim Brad Mills off waivers from OAK
    Blue Jays claimed LHP Brad Mills off waivers from the Athletics.

    Advice: Mills was designated for assignment by Oakland earlier this month. The 29-year-old left-hander had a 4.41 ERA and 1.59 WHIP in 16 1/3 innings with the A's, but he could eventually see some starts in Toronto.
