  • Brian Johnson dealing with elbow issue
    Brian Johnson will be placed on Triple-A Pawtucket's disabled list due to left elbow tightness.

    Advice: Johnson has been mentioned as a possibility to take Joe Kelly's spot in the rotation later this week, but obviously that won't happen now. He'll be re-evaluated later Monday or Tuesday before more is known about a potential timetable. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:09 pm

  • Arnold Leon recalled from Triple-A
    Athletics recalled RHP Arnold Leon from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Leon holds a 3.74 ERA and 10/1 K/BB ratio over 9 2/3 relief innings with the big club this season. He'll be used in long relief. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:24 pm
  • Kyle Lobstein (shoulder) back on mound
    Kyle Lobstein (shoulder) has resumed throwing from a mound.

    Advice: Lobstein has been on the shelf since late May with soreness in his left shoulder. There remains no timetable for his return, but it would seem he'd have a shot to contribute at some point this season with the Tigers if he can progress without any setbacks. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:44 pm
    60-Day DL
     
  • Dodgers outright Brandon Beachy to AAA
    Dodgers sent RHP Brandon Beachy outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Beachy accepted the assignment rather than test the free agent waters. The 28-year-old right-hander is still working back from a second Tommy John surgery. He allowed seven runs in eight innings (two starts) with LA. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:48 am

  • Beachy will accept assignment to AAA level
    Brandon Beachy will accept an assignment to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Beachy was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on July 30. He had the option of electing free agency, but the 28-year-old right-hander has decided to remain with the organization. Beachy is still building arm strength following his second Tommy John surgery. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:22 am

  • Brandon Beachy clears waivers
    According to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, right-hander Brandon Beachy has cleared waivers.

    Advice: Beachy got designated for assignment by the Dodgers on July 30 in the aftermath of the club's 13-player trade with the Braves and Marlins. Beachy allowed seven earned runs in eight innings (two starts) for Los Angeles. He hasn't shown much coming off his second career Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery, but there should be some team out there willing to take a chance. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:31 am

  • Rasmus yields two runs against Dodgers
    Cory Rasmus allowed two runs on three hits over three innings in earning a no-decision against the Dodgers on Sunday.

    Advice: Rasmus was starting in place of the injured C.J. Wilson. Primarily a reliever, the Angels let him go three innings against the Dodgers on Sunday. He pitched adequately (if not spectacularly) in his time on the mound, striking out three and walking none. A two-run home run by Howie Kendrick in the third inning accounted for both runs against Rasmus. The Angels have yet to announce how they will be setting up their rotation moving forward, so another start is not a given for the 27-year-old. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:31 pm

  • Pelfrey limits Mariners to four hits in ND
    Mike Pelfrey was superb in a no-decision against the Mariners on Sunday, allowing no runs and just four hits over eight innings in the team's 4-1, 11-inning loss.

    Advice: Pelfrey struck out three and walked one while scattering four hits over eight shutout innings. In most universes, this would result in a win. In our universe, it resulted in a no-decision, as neither team scored until the ninth inning (at which point, both teams notched solo homers to drive the game to extras). Pelfrey's succeeded despite a 1.40 WHIP, posting a 3.65 ERA across 118 1/3 innings. He'll try to keep fighting against that big WHIP number when he takes to the road to face the Indians in his next scheduled start. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:22 pm
  • White Sox option Scott Carroll to Triple-A
    White Sox optioned RHP Scott Carroll to Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: The White Sox certainly got their use out of Carroll on Sunday, as he pitched 4 1/3 innings of relief against the Yankees, allowing three runs on three hits while striking out six. He'll continue to serve as organizational bullpen depth at Triple-A until a fresh arm is needed again. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:39 pm

  • Julio Urias throws 5 1/3 hitless innings
    Dodgers LHP prospect Julio Urias didn't allow a hit in 5 1/3 innings Saturday for Double-A Tulsa.

    Advice: Urias gave up four walks, which led to two runs for Arkansas. Even though he lost, it was still an impressive outing for Urias, who has limited opponents to a .199 average in 12 starts this season. The 18-year-old missed two months earlier this year after undergoing cosmetic eye surgery but it shouldn't affect him going forward. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:35 pm

  • Miley pitches into seventh in strong start
    Wade Miley put together a nice start in earning a no-decision against the Rays on Sunday, tossing 6 2/3 innings of two-run ball.

    Advice: Miley's strong start comes on the heels of a seven-run debacle versus the White Sox. Against the Rays on Sunday, he bounced back nicely and scattered five hits while striking out four and walking one over 6 2/3 innings. Brandon Guyer burned him for a solo home run in the first inning and James Loney notched an RBI double in the fourth, but the 28-year-old southpaw otherwise kept the scoreboard clean. Miley's quietly allowed two runs or fewer in three of his last four starts and holds a 4.55 ERA and 1.39 WHIP overall. He'll take to the road to face the Tigers next time he toes the rubber. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:51 pm
  • Morrow (shoulder) getting second opinion
    Brandon Morrow (shoulder) will receive a second opinion from Dr. Neal ElAttrache this week.

    Advice: Morrow was scratched from his rehab start last Thursday due to more shoulder discomfort. A subsequent exam by Padres team physician Dr. Heinz Hoenecke on Friday resulted in a diagnosis of shoulder inflammation, which is what Morrow has been dealing with for three months. However, he wants to get another opinion to see if anything else is going on. The right-hander would seem to be a long shot to pitch for the Padres again this season.

    60-Day DL
    W, 13-5 @Mil
     
  • Vidal Nuno to start on Tuesday
    Vidal Nuno will start on Tuesday in Colorado.

    Advice: He's taking J.A. Happ's spot in the rotation. Nuno boasts a 2.02 ERA and 38/8 K/BB ratio over 35 2/3 relief innings between the D'Backs and Mariners this season. The downside is that he hasn't thrown more than 2 2/3 innings in any appearance this month, so he'll be pretty limited from a pitch count perspective on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:34 am
  • Tanner Scheppers (knee) goes on DL
    Rangers placed RHP Tanner Scheppers on the 15-day disabled list with left knee inflammation.

    Advice: Scheppers evidently suffered the injury on Saturday. It's unclear at this point how long he'll be sidelined. Phil Klein has taken his spot in the bullpen. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:15 am
    15-Day DL
     
  • Porcello (triceps) placed on disabled list
    Red Sox placed RHP Rick Porcello on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 30, with right triceps inflammation.

    Advice: Porcello began feeling soreness a day after he was ripped for six runs -- five earned -- and 10 hits in two-plus innings on Wednesday versus the White Sox. The Red Sox don't think it's a long-term issue, so he should rejoin the rotation later this month. Brian Johnson and Henry Owens are options to take his spot in the rotation.

    15-Day DL
     
  • Alfredo Simon pushed back due to sore groin
    Alfredo Simon's next scheduled start will be pushed back to Saturday due to a lingering groin injury.

    Advice: Simon first tweaked the groin in his July 25 outing and it nagged at him during his start this past Thursday. He told Tigers manager Brad Ausmus he could pitch through it, but the skipper wants to be careful. "I'm concerned about it," Ausmus said. "And I don't get concerned about many things. Just because he felt good in his bullpen before his last start and then didn't look real good, so we'll give him these extra days. ... Obviously, if we have to adjust, we will."

  • Aaron Brooks pitches 7 1/3 innings in victory
    Making his A's debut, Aaron Brooks held the Indians to one run and five hits in 7 1/3 innings in a victory Saturday.

    Advice: Pitching for the Royals, Brooks gave up seven runs in two-thirds of an inning in his first big league start on May 31. He allowed three runs in 3 1/3 innings in his second start this June 21 against the Red Sox. This was his third start. If keeps improving at this rate, he'll allow -4 runs in 13 innings next time out. Still, we're a bit skeptical. He's a risky pickup in AL-only leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:06 pm
  • Aaron Brooks officially recalled
    Athletics recalled RHP Aaron Brooks from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: He'll start Saturday's game against Cleveland. Oakland acquired Brooks Tuesday in the trade that sent Ben Zobrist to Kansas City. The 25-year-old has a 6-5 record in 18 Triple-A appearances this year. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:28 pm
  • White Sox recall Scott Carroll from Triple-A
    White Sox recalled RHP Scott Carroll from Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Carroll seems to be the go-to guy anytime the White Sox need a fresh arm in the bullpen. The 30-year-old has appeared in 12 games for the big league club this season, posting a 3.28 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 15/9 K/BB ratio over 24 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:39 pm

  • Dodgers designate Beachy for assignment
    Dodgers designated RHP Brandon Beachy for assignment.

    Advice: The Dodgers were forced to cut a few very talented players as a result of Thursday's massive 13-player three-team trade. Beachy should attract interest from several clubs, and the Dodgers could flip him in another trade shortly. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:26 pm

  • Angers recall Rasmus from Triple-A
    Angels recalled RHP Cory Rasmus from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: He'll take Mike Morin's spot in the Angels' bullpen. Rasmus had core muscle surgery in March and has been limited to just 10 appearances (including three starts) at the Triple-A level this year. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:39 pm

  • Tigers transfer Kyle Lobstein to 60-day DL
    Tigers transferred LHP Kyle Lobstein from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: It's a paperwork move to clear a 40-man roster spot for Daniel Norris, who was acquired from the Blue Jays in Thursday's David Price trade. Lobstein has been out since May 24. There's no timetable for his return. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:01 am
    60-Day DL
     
  • Morrow won't make rehab start Thursday
    Brandon Morrow (shoulder) will not make his scheduled rehab start on Thursday.

    Advice: He's going to visit Dr. Heinz Hoenecke in San Diego instead. Morrow allowed two runs over 2 1/3 innings last Saturday at Triple-A El Paso and came out of the appearance with more shoulder discomfort. The right-hander has been out since early May and might have to be written off for the rest of the 2015 season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:52 am
    60-Day DL

  • Rick Porcello gives up 10 hits in two-plus
    Rick Porcello was pounded for six runs -- five earned -- and 10 hits in two-plus innings by the White Sox on Wednesday.

    Advice: Just when it looked like Porcello might have gotten it together (5 ER in 18 IP last three starts), he finds himself right back at square one tonight. He's lost nine of his last 10 decisions, and his ERA is back up to 5.81 now. This is just completely and totally a lost year for him. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:59 pm
    15-Day DL
     
  • Brian Johnson sharp in return to Triple-A
    Red Sox LHP prospect Brian Johnson scattered four hits and three walks over 6 1/3 scoreless frames Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: He threw a season-high 100 pitches and finished with six strikeouts. The 24-year-old has been among the best pitchers in Triple-A this year. His 2.54 ERA is third-lowest in the International League. He also has the league's lowest WHIP (1.10) and the sixth-highest strikeout total (87). Johnson failed to impress in his Red Sox debut July 21 at Houston (4 1/3 IP, 3 H, 4 BB, 4 ER) but he should have plenty more chances to prove himself in the bigs. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:05 pm

  • Pelfrey allows three runs in start vs. Bucs
    Mike Pelfrey allowed three runs -- two earned -- over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Pirates on Tuesday.

    Advice: Pelfrey gave up five hits and walked two in the outing. He kept the Pirates off the board until the fifth inning but didn't stick around long enough to factor in the decision. With the no-decision, Pelfrey remains without a win since June 7. He'll take a 5-7 record, 3.92 ERA and 1.46 WHIP into Sunday's tilt with the Mariners. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:57 pm
  • Miley hit early and often against White Sox
    Wade Miley struggled from the outset Tuesday, allowing seven runs on 10 hits over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Miley spotted the White Sox a five-run lead but managed to keep them off the board until giving up two more runs in the sixth. Miley also walked three while striking out five in the poor start. The start was actually a departure from Miley's previous two starts, as he'd allowed just one run over his previous two starts spanning 13 innings. Miley will carry an 8-9 record, 4.65 ERA and 1.42 WHIP into Sunday's contest against the Rays. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:15 pm
  • Aaron Brooks to start for A's Saturday
    Aaron Brooks will be recalled to start on Saturday against the Indians.

    Advice: Acquired from the Royals in the Ben Zobrist deal, Brooks holds a 3.71 ERA over 18 appearances -- 17 starts -- at Triple-A this season. The A's will keep Drew Pomeranz in the bullpen. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:23 pm
  • A's acquire RHP Brooks from Royals
    Athletics acquired RHP Aaron Brooks from the Royals in the Ben Zobrist deal.

    Advice: Brooks doesn't miss many bats and has struggled in his limited opportunities in the majors, but he has excellent control and has pitched well in the Pacific Coast League over the past two seasons. The 25-year-old could be a useful depth arm for Oakland, but there's not a lot of upside here. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:02 pm
  • Morrow goes only 2 1/3 innings in rehab
    Brandon Morrow (shoulder) allowed three hits and two earned runs over 2 1/3 innings Saturday in his first rehab start with Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Morrow sat 92-95 mph with his fastball and topped out at 99 mph, but the results weren't all that great. The oft-injured right-hander is probably going to make several rehab starts before he is again considered for a rotation spot in San Diego. Morrow has been out since early May with a shoulder issue. Rotoworld.com Jul 25, 6:45 pm
    60-Day DL

  • Alfredo Simon goes six strong versus BOS
    Alfredo Simon hurled six innings of one-run ball in the Tigers' defeat of the Red Sox on Saturday.

    Advice: Simon was sharp against a struggling Boston offense, surrendering only five hits and two walks over six strong frames. The only Red Sox run came on a Mookie Betts groundout in the bottom of the fifth inning. Simon has been very inconsistent this season, now the owner of a 9-6 record, 4.46 ERA, and 1.46 WHIP. He faces the Orioles on the road next. Rotoworld.com Jul 25, 4:15 pm
  • Porcello fares well against his former team
    Rick Porcello fared well in a no-decision against his former club on Friday, allowing just one run on five hits over seven strong innings.

    Advice: Porcello punched out six on the night and didn't issue a free pass. The only blemish on his evening was an RBI single by Ian Kinsler in the third inning. While he has been a major disappointment for the Red Sox this season, he owns a 2.50 ERA and 14/4 K/BB ratio over 18 innings in his last three starts, so perhaps he's turning the corner. He'll take on the White Sox his next time out on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Jul 24, 8:01 pm
    15-Day DL
     
  • Athletics option Arnold Leon back to Triple-A
    Athletics optioned RHP Arnold Leon to Triple-A Sacramento.

    Advice: Leon was just with the club for one day as an extra arm in the wake of the Scott Kazmir deal. He'll continue to function as organizational depth at Triple-A. Rotoworld.com Jul 24, 2:45 pm
