  • Kipnis (shoulder) expected to miss 2-3 weeks
    Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Jason Kipnis (shoulder) is expected to be sidelined for 2-3 weeks.

    Advice: Kipnis tried to battle through a sore right shoulder for a few days, but the Indians finally placed him on the disabled list Monday. He doesn't have any structural damage, but it's an ailment that's bothered Kipnis off and on for a good chunk of the season. Mike Aviles is likely to receive the bulk of the playing time at second base while Kipnis is out. Today, 4:46 pm

  • Tillman (ankle) aims to throw off mound Wed.
    Chris Tillman (ankle) threw on flat ground from 90 feet Monday and is hoping to throw a bullpen session Wednesday.

    Advice: Tillman had to be scratched from Monday's scheduled start due to a sprained right ankle, but he should be ready to rejoin the rotation later this week. The right-hander has been on a roll of late with a 1.09 ERA over his last six starts. Today, 4:21 pm
  • 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. Today, 4:09 pm

  • Vinnie Pestano outrighted to Triple-A
    Angels sent RHP Vinnie Pestano outright to Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: Pestano cleared waivers after being designated for assignment last week. The 30-year-old will represent relief depth in the minors. Today, 4:06 pm

  • Jason Kipnis (shoulder) placed on 15-day DL
    Indians placed 2B Jason Kipnis on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 2, with right shoulder inflammation.

    Advice: Kipnis tried playing through the ailment for a few days, receiving starts in the designated hitter spot, but the club has decided it's best to go ahead and shut him down for a while. It's unclear at this point how long he might be sidelined. Jose Ramirez has taken his spot on the roster and should see some time at second base along with Mike Aviles while Kipnis is sidelined. Today, 3:32 pm

  • Kyle Lohse to stay in rotation 'as of now'
    Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Monday that Kyle Lohse will remain in the club's rotation "as of now."

    Advice: Counsell said Sunday that the organization would discuss Lohse's status and apparently they've decided to leave him in the starting five for the time being. "Kyle’s still in the rotation," Counsell said. "Kyle’s pitching Friday night as of now." Lohse holds an ugly 6.31 ERA and 1.47 WHIP on the season and is on thin ice, to say the least. Today, 2:51 pm
  • Matt Szczur recalled from Triple-A
    Cubs recalled OF Matt Szczur from Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: Szczur sports an ugly .211/.246/.316 batting line during his time in the majors this season. He'll back up at all three outfield spots. Today, 2:36 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. Today, 1:44 pm
    60-Day DL
  • Donovan Solano optioned to Triple-A
    Marlins optioned INF Donovan Solano to Triple-A New Orleans.

    Advice: Solano has managed just a .156/.194/.219 batting line over 46 games this season. The Marlins have elected to keep Miguel Rojas around as a utility infielder over him. Today, 1:29 pm

  • Adam Duvall homers in Louisville debut
    Reds 1B prospect Adam Duvall homered in his first game for Triple-A Louisville on Sunday.

    Advice: Duvall now has 27 round-trippers in 408 at-bats this year. There's no denying his immense power, but unfortunately Duvall is in the same position he was in San Francisco. With the Giants, he was blocked at first base by Brandon Belt. Now in Cincinnati, the same is true with Joey Votto. Duvall's best chance to crack the majors might be as a corner outfielder, though it's unclear if he can make that transition. Today, 12:51 pm

  • Michael Morse starting at 1B on Monday
    Michael Morse is batting seventh and starting at first base Monday in his Pirates debut.

    Advice: Morse was acquired from the Dodgers in a July 31 deadline trade. He had been shipped from Miami to Los Angeles one day prior as part of a big 13-player, three-team swap. The 33-year-old first baseman has struggled mightily this season and probably won't suddenly take on significant fantasy value with Pittsburgh. Today, 12:00 pm
  • 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. Today, 11:48 am

  • Rays officially send Matt Moore to AAA Durham
    Rays optioned LHP Matt Moore to Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Moore went 1-3 with an 8.78 ERA in six starts after returning July 2 from Tommy John surgery. The 26-year-old southpaw clearly needs to build more arm strength and the Rays want him to do it as a starter in the minors rather than in the bullpen as a mop-up man. Tampa Bay has some upcoming off days and will roll with a four-man rotation for the time being. Today, 11:26 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. 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. Today, 10:31 am

  • Furbush (biceps) throws 33-pitch bullepner
    Charlie Furbush (biceps) threw 33 fastballs in a successful bullpen workout Sunday.

    Advice: Furbush should be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment after one more side session. He has been on the disabled list since early July with tendinitis in his left biceps. The 29-year-old southpaw was having an exceptional season before the injury. Today, 10:18 am
    15-Day DL
  • Joe Mauer out of Twins' lineup on Monday
    Joe Mauer is not in the Twins' starting lineup on Monday afternoon against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Mauer gets a day off with the Twins taking on new Blue Jays left-hander David Price. Trevor Plouffe is starting at first base and batting third at Toronto's Rogers Centre. Eduardo Nunez is handling the hot corner. Today, 7:44 am
    L, 5-1 x @Tor
  • Sandoval (forearm) served as pinch-hitter
    Pablo Sandoval (forearm) struck out as a pinch-hitter in Sunday's loss to the Rays.

    Advice: Sandoval hasn't started a game since taking a pitch off his left forearm last Thursday evening. He just has a bruise and should be good to go this week. Today, 5:11 am
  • Kyle Lohse in danger of losing rotation spot
    Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Sunday that the organization will have a discussion about the rotation spot of Kyle Lohse.

    Advice: Lohse was handed his 13th loss of the season on Sunday, allowing four runs on nine hits over just 4 1/3 innings against the Cubs. He owns a troublesome 6.31 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 86/30 K/BB ratio on the season and has shown no signs of figuring things out or stringing a few good starts together. It's quite shocking that he has remained in the rotation for as long as he has. Yesterday, 8:18 pm
  • Lohse knocked for nine hits in 4 1/3 innings
    Kyle Lohse picked up his 13th loss of the season in Sunday's contest with the Cubs, allowing four runs on nine hits over 4 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Sunday's start counts as a decent outing relative to some of Lohse's other disasters this season. He allowed solitary runs in the first, second, fourth and fifth innings while striking out three against one walk. For the season, he holds a 6.31 ERA and 1.47 WHIP to pair with a 86/30 K/BB ratio over 124 innings. The Cardinals are up next on his schedule, which probably isn't a good thing. Yesterday, 2:40 pm
  • Kipnis (shoulder) could land on disabled list
    The Indians are considering placing Jason Kipnis (shoulder) on the disabled list.

    Advice: Kipnis is not playing Sunday after being limited to designated hitter duty of late because of soreness in his right shoulder. The results of an MRI he had Sunday haven't been revealed, but it's evidently bad enough that the club thinks the second baseman could need at least a couple weeks off. Manager Terry Francona said he would talk things over with the medical staff and general manager Chris Antonetti before a decision is made. Yesterday, 11:08 am
    15-Day DL

  • Jason Kipnis sitting out on Sunday
    Jason Kipnis is not in the Indians' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Kipnis has been serving as the designated hitter of late due to a sore right shoulder and now he's out of the lineup altogether. Carlos Santana is the DH Sunday, with Jerry Sands covering first base. Yesterday, 10:25 am
    15-Day DL
    7:05 pm x @LAA
  • Pablo Sandoval (forearm) out again Sunday
    Pablo Sandoval (forearm) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He hasn't played since being hit on the left forearm by a pitch on Thursday. Sandoval remains day-to-day and should have a shot to return Tuesday after Monday's off day. Travis Shaw is at third base Sunday. Yesterday, 7:06 am
  • Jason Kipnis dealing with sore shoulder
    Jason Kipnis will DH Saturday against the Athletics because of a sore right shoulder.

    Advice: Kipnis was also the DH for Friday's game. The injury doesn't sound serious but it's something to keep an eye on. Utility man Mike Aviles is starting at second base for the Tribe on Saturday. Saturday, 6:06 pm
    15-Day DL
    7:05 pm x @LAA
  • Furbush close to beginning rehab assignment
    Charlie Furbush (biceps) is scheduled to throw bullpen sessions on Sunday and Tuesday.

    Advice: If all goes well, Furbush will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday and could be back with the Mariners by next weekend. Furbush has been one of the more reliable arms in Seattle's bullpen, contributing a dominant 2.08 ERA across 33 appearances this year. Left-handers are hitting .105 against him in 38 at-bats. Saturday, 6:01 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Rays will send Matt Moore to Triple-A Durham
    Matt Moore will be sent down to Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: The move will be made official on Monday. Moore hasn't looked right since coming back from Tommy John surgery. In six starts, he's 1-3 with a horrifying 8.78 ERA. Opponents have hit .365 against him with four homers in 26 2/3 innings. For now, the Rays will go with a four-man rotation of Chris Archer, Nathan Karns, Jake Odorizzi and Erasmo Ramirez. Saturday, 4:33 pm

  • Tillman (ankle) doubtful for Monday's start
    Chris Tillman (ankle) is not expected to make his scheduled start Monday against the Athletics.

    Advice: His sprained ankle is feeling better but he's not ready to pitch yet. The Orioles are optimistic Tillman won't require a trip to the disabled list. It's unclear who would start in his place, though Tyler Wilson could be a possibility. Tillman hurled a gem in his last outing, scattering four hits over 8 2/3 shutout innings Wednesday in a win against the Braves. Saturday, 2:36 pm
  • Matt Moore knocked around in loss to Red Sox
    Matt Moore was knocked around in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox, allowing six runs on nine hits in just three innings of work.

    Advice: Moore walked one and struck out two on the afternoon. As can be expected for a young hurler returning from Tommy John surgery, Moore has been very inconsistent through his first six starts. He owns a troublesome 8.78 ERA, 2.06 WHIP and 17/13 K/BB ratio through 26 2/3 innings. He'll strive for better results when he takes on the Mets at home on Friday. Saturday, 2:16 pm

  • Pirates acquire Michael Morse for Jose Tabata
    Pirates acquired 1B/OF Michael Morse from the Dodgers in exchange for OF Jose Tabata.

    Advice: Morse was designated for assignment after the Dodgers picked him up in the three-team deal with the Marlins and Braves. He's hit only .214/.277/.314 in 173 plate appearances this season but offers the Pirates an option at first base against left-handed pitching. Friday, 1:23 pm
  • Pablo Sandoval (forearm) not in lineup
    Pablo Sandoval (forearm) is not in the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Sandoval was hit on the left forearm by a pitch on Thursday. He merely has a bruise and should be fine in a day or two. Josh Rutledge is filling in at third base. Friday, 12:22 pm
  • Donovan Solano back from paternity leave
    Marlins activated INF Donovan Solano from the paternity leave list.

    Advice: He'll return to his utility role. Solano is hitting an embarrassing .145/.185/.210 over 44 games. Friday, 12:11 pm

  • Adam Duvall goes to Reds in Leake deal
    Reds acquired INF Adam Duvall and RHP Keury Mella from the Giants in exchange for RHP Mike Leake.

    Advice: Duvall, 26, hit 27 homers at Triple-A last season and has 26 so far in 2015, but he's been blocked at the major league level and not gotten much of a chance. Unfortunately for him, he's now blocked again in Cincinnati by Joey Votto and Todd Frazier. Friday, 5:22 am

  • Sandoval diagnosed with forearm contusion
    Pablo Sandoval is considered day-to-day after being diagnosed with a left forearm contusion.

    Advice: Sandoval was forced to leave Thursday's contest against the White Sox after being hit by a pitch. It appears as though he didn't sustain any structural damage though and should be ready to return to the lineup at some point over the weekend. Thursday, 6:53 pm
  • Pablo Sandoval leaves after hit by pitch
    Pablo Sandoval was removed from Thursday's game against the White Sox after being hit in the wrist/forearm area by a Chris Sale pitch.

    Advice: Sandoval actually struck out swinging at the pitch, literally adding insult to injury. He'll presumably head for X-rays to rule out any fractures. The Red Sox should have an update on his status shortly. Thursday, 6:17 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. Thursday, 5:26 pm
    Not Active
  • Dodgers designate Morse for assignment
    Dodgers designated 1B Michael Morse for assignment.

    Advice: Morse was acquired on Thursday as part of the massive 13-player, three-team trade with the Marlins and Braves, but it's clear that he was just a salary dump. The 33-year-old is unlikely to attract much interest on waivers. Thursday, 4:34 pm
  • Dodgers acquire Michael Morse from Marlins
    Dodgers acquired 1B Michael Morse from the Marlins in the 13-player, three-team Mat Latos trade.

    Advice: Morse doesn't fit all that well on the Dodgers' current roster and it seems possible that they might turn around and designate him for assignment to clear room for some of the other players they acquired in this massive swap. Morse, 33, was batting just .214/.277/.314 in 173 plate appearances this season for Miami. Thursday, 1:34 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. Thursday, 11:01 am
    60-Day DL
  • Farrell admits Sandoval's weight is an issue
    Red Sox manager John Farrell acknowledged Wednesday that Pablo Sandoval's weight is an issue.

    Advice: It's the first time Farrell has addressed this topic since spring training, when he was in full support of Boston's new acquisition. The burly third baseman got thrown out at home on a ball he should have scored on Wednesday night against the White Sox and had to be lifted from the game two innings later due to dehydration. "There are ongoing efforts to support that, to try to get him in the best shape possible," said Farrell. "That's something Pablo has dealt with his entire career. It continues to be addressed." Thursday, 5:37 am
  • Tillman hurls 8 2/3 shutout frames vs. Braves
    Chris Tillman delivered 8 2/3 scoreless innings to beat the Braves on Wednesday.

    Advice: Tillman got the first two outs of the ninth inning on ground balls, but allowed a double to Cameron Maybin before Zach Britton entered the game to get the final out. Tillman used 95 pitches, limiting the Braves to four hits while walking none and striking out two. The right-hander has held opponents to two runs or fewer in six consecutive starts, doing wonders for his ERA which now stands at 4.35 with a 1.33 WHIP and an 80/42 K/BB ratio over 113 2/3 innings. Tillman will look to keep it going in Oakland versus the Athletics next. Wednesday, 7:10 pm
  • Dodgers/Marlins deal could involve third team
    Jim Bowden of ESPN and SiriusXM reports that there is a third team involved in the trade sending Mat Latos and Michael Morse to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Bowden says the deal will be "bigger than expected." There's a good chance it means Morse will be flipped to another team, as the Dodgers have little use for him. We should know more details later Wednesday. Wednesday, 12:43 pm
  • 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. Wednesday, 12:05 pm

  • Kipnis has 3 hits, wasted in loss to Royals
    Jason Kipnis went 3-for-4 with a double, but the Indians dropped Tuesday's contest to the Royals.

    Advice: Kipnis couldn't be brought around to score as the Indians' 2-5 hitters combined to go 2-for-14. The Indians have dropped six games in a row, averaging 1.7 runs per game. But it's not the fault of Kipnis, who has an outstanding .330/.405/.485 triple-slash line on the year. Tuesday, 7:40 pm
    15-Day DL
    7:05 pm x @LAA
  • Sandoval hits eighth homer against White Sox
    Pablo Sandoval went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Sandoval's two-run blast against White Sox starter Jeff Samardzija in the second inning was all the offense the Red Sox could muster until the ninth inning. The two-hit game was Sandoval's third in a row, raising his line to .263/.307/.382 with eight homers and 34 RBI. Tuesday, 7:31 pm
  • Charlie Furbush (biceps) throws off mound
    Charlie Furbush (biceps) threw a bullpen session on Tuesday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's been on the bump since landing on the disabled list with left biceps tendinitis. Furbush will throw one more bullpen session on Thursday before likely being cleared for a short rehab assignment. Tuesday, 7:19 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Vinnie Pestano designated for assignment
    Angels designated RHP Vinnie Pestano for assignment.

    Advice: It's been quite a fall for Pestano, who looked like one of the better relievers in the American League a few years ago. The 30-year-old has put up a 24/4 K/BB ratio over 20 Triple-A innings this season but holds a 5.40 ERA in 19 relief appearances with the big club. He'll clear waivers given his $1.15 million salary.

  • Lohse pitches into seventh, but loses to SFG
    Kyle Lohse yielded four runs over 6 2/3 innings, taking his 12th loss of the season on Monday versus the Giants.

    Advice: The Giants put up a three-spot in the fourth inning, which included a two-run Brandon Crawford home run. Gregor Blanco ripped a pinch-hit RBI double in the seventh. Lohse, overall, gave up five hits and three walks, and failed to register a strikeout. The right-hander owns an abysmal 6.24 ERA with a 1.44 WHIP and an 83/29 K/BB ratio over 119 2/3 innings. He faces the Cubs in a home start next. Monday, 9:58 pm
  • Kipnis (neck) goes 0-for-4 in return Sat.
    Jason Kipnis (neck) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout Sunday in his return to the Indians' lineup.

    Advice: Kipnis was held out of action on Saturday due to some mild stiffness in his neck. It obviously isn't a big deal. The second baseman is slashing .321/.397/.476 in what has otherwise been a frustrating year for Cleveland. Jul 27, 5:54 am
    15-Day DL
    7:05 pm x @LAA
  • Moore mediocre again in loss to the Orioles
    Matt Moore's struggles continued in a loss to the Orioles on Sunday, serving up five runs in five innings.

    Advice: The Orioles jumped on him for three runs in the first inning, then Caleb Joseph tacked on two more with a home run in the fourth. Moore was, at the very least, able to complete the fifth inning for only the second time in five starts. He allowed eight hits and a pair of walks while striking out four. The lefty owns a terrible 7.61 ERA with a 1.90 WHIP and a 15/12 K/BB ratio over 23 2/3 innings. Moore will get the ball in Boston against the Red Sox next. Jul 26, 1:04 pm

  • Kipnis out Saturday because of neck stiffness
    Jason Kipnis is out of the Indians' starting lineup on Saturday night because of a stiff neck.

    Advice: One day off should do the trick for Kipnis. Mike Aviles will start at second base and bat leadoff as the Indians do battle with White Sox left-hander Chris Sale. Jul 25, 3:20 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Chris Tillman brilliant again in no-decision
    Chris Tillman pitched brilliantly again in a no-decision against the Rays on Friday, surrendering just one run on two hits over seven-plus innings.

    Advice: Tillman walked three and fanned four on the night He carried a shutout into the eighth inning and departed after allowing a leadoff walk, who would come around to score after he had departed. After a brutal first few months, Tillman has shown signs of life recently, registering a 1.38 ERA and 28/6 K/BB ratio over his last five starts. He'll look to ride that momentum into Wednesday's start against the Braves. Jul 24, 7:21 pm
  • Giants could bring back Michael Morse's Joe Frisaro reports that Michael Morse "might just be dealt" to the Giants.

    Advice: Morse, of course, had a nice season for the Giants last year. However, he's hit only .206/.268/.310 during an injury-shortened 2015 campaign and is owed $8 million next season. Plus, the Giants don't really have a need for him other than a bat off the bench. It's hard to see a fit unless the Marlins pay down the bulk of what remains on his contract. Jul 24, 9:45 am
