    Diamondbacks optioned LHP Andrew Chafin to Triple-A Reno.

  • Josh Hamilton (knee) not cleared to run yet
    Josh Hamilton (knee) has yet to be cleared to resume running.

    Advice: Hamilton is taking batting practice and playing catch with no issues, but his left knee remains too sore to run on. He will be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday but could be limited to pinch-hitting initially. "It feels OK to throw and hit on the knee," he said. "I just haven’t gotten to the important part where I can run or jog. That’s the next step." Today, 9:21 am
    15-Day DL
    Bot 3, 3-0 vs x Bal

    Bobby Parnell (shoulder) threw live batting practice Sunday.

    Advice: Parnell is technically on the disabled list with shoulder tendinitis, but he's really on there due to poor performance. He hasn't looked healthy since returning in early-June, with his velocity middling in the 93 MPH range. Parnell will be activated when rosters expand Tuesday. Today, 8:22 am
    15-Day DL
    Top 9, 5-4 vs Bos

    Advice: Teixeira has started just one game over the last 13 days due to a deep bone bruise in his right shin.

  • Michael Taylor (knee) returns to Nats' lineup

  • CC Sabathia (knee) plays catch
    CC Sabathia (knee) played catch on Saturday.

    Advice: It's the second time he's done so since landing on the disabled list. Sabathia was sporting a large brace on his arthritic right knee when he threw and will have to wear it if he returns this season. There's no room for him in the Yankees' rotation at the moment, although the club talked about using a six-man rotation before Sabathia was injured. Today, 6:56 am
    15-Day DL
  • Carlos Rodon could be skipped next month
    White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Saturday that the club could skip one of Carlos Rodon's starts next month.

    Advice: Rodon has thrown 122 2/3 innings between the majors and minors in his first full pro season, which is 9 1/3 frames shy of his high innings total from college. "There might be a spot where you can skip him and get him into that better line of where you would like to see him end up," Ventura said. "I also like to see him getting the repetition of being out there every five days." Rodon hasn't shown signs of wearing down, as he's pitched his best ball of the season of late with a 1.61 ERA and 29/11 K/BB ratio over his last 28 innings. Today, 6:08 am
  • Phil Gosselin (thumb) to be activated Monday
    Phil Gosselin (thumb) will be activated from the disabled list Monday.

    Advice: Gosselin had surgery on his left thumb back in May but is finally ready to return after completing a rehab assignment. He'll be making his Diamondbacks debut after being acquired from the Braves in June. Today, 5:48 am

    1:10 pm vs x Oak
  • Michael Taylor (knee) appears as pinch-hitter
    Michael Taylor (knee) grounded out as a pinch-hitter in Saturday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Taylor hasn't started the last two games due to a bruised right knee, but that he was able to pinch-hit is a good sign that he's close. He could be back in the lineup Sunday. Today, 5:24 am
  • Mat Latos pitches well in return to rotation
    Mat Latos held the Cubs to two runs over 4 2/3 innings Saturday in a no-decision.

    Advice: Latos was skipped on his last turn through the Dodgers' rotation and pitched pretty well in his return to action Saturday all things considered. The right-hander walked three but struck out five and yielded only four hits. He'll face the Padres on the road next. Yesterday, 9:44 pm
  • Michael Taylor (knee) remains sidelined
    Michael Taylor (knee) is not in the Nationals' starting lineup Saturday against the Marlins.

    Advice: He banged his right knee against the outfield wall in Thursday's win against San Diego. Denard Span's season-ending hip injury has opened up playing time for Taylor in center field. Bryce Harper will get the start there on Saturday. Yesterday, 3:42 pm
  • Ryan Hanigan scratched from Red Sox lineup
    Ryan Hanigan was scratched from the Red Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: No reason given yet for the scratch. Blake Swihart will suit up again behind the plate and will catch for Joe Kelly on Saturday. Yesterday, 12:03 pm
  • d'Arnaud notches RBI single vs BOS
    Travis d'Arnaud went 1-for-3 with an RBI single and two walks in Friday's 10-inning loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: One of d'Arnaud's two walks came with the bases loaded in the seventh inning. He's currently working on a six-game hitting streak which has helped to boost his overall batting line to .279/.355/.544 across 147 at-bats. In addition to those fine numbers, he's hit nine homers and driven in 30 runs. Friday, 8:49 pm
  • Josh Hamilton (knee) takes batting practice
    Josh Hamilton (knee) took batting practice on Friday.

    Advice: Hamilton has been on the shelf for the last couple weeks with a nagging left knee ailment but finally appears to be making some progress. He could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Monday, although the Rangers could easily wait until Tuesday when rosters expand. Friday, 2:50 pm
    15-Day DL
    Bot 3, 3-0 vs x Bal
  • Mark Teixeira (shin) could undergo more tests
    Mark Teixeira (shin) remains sore and could be sent for more tests.

    Advice: Teixeira returned to action Tuesday, but he could barely run and he's still feeling it after Thursday's off day. Obviously he's not in Friday's lineup and he could finally be placed on the disabled list. Greg Bird will fill in again at first base. Friday, 1:39 pm
  • Michael Taylor (knee) to miss a few games
    Michael Taylor (knee) is expected to be sidelined for a few days.

    Advice: The feeling is that Taylor didn't cause any major damage when he collided with the outfield wall Thursday, but he has a bad bruise on his right knee. He could wind up missing the entire weekend series against the Marlins. Matt den Dekker should handle center field for a few days. Friday, 11:32 am
  • Carlos Rodon earns win over Mariners
    Carlos Rodon pitched six innings of two-run ball Thursday in the White Sox's 4-2 win over the Mariners.

    Advice: Rodon overcame his embarrassment at wearing maybe the silliest uniform in baseball history and turned in his fourth straight quality start. Those who dropped him last month have to be disappointed by the turnaround, but it's still quite possible that he'll succumb to fatigue down the stretch. Thursday, 8:30 pm
  • X-rays come back negative for Taylor
    Michael Taylor (knee) is listed as day-to-day after being diagnosed with a right knee contusion on Thursday.

    Advice: Taylor was pulled from Thursday's game in the seventh inning after crashing into the outfield wall. Thankfully, he was able to avoid any significant injuries and should be cleared to return to the Nationals lineup at some point over the weekend. Thursday, 7:31 pm
  • Michael Taylor leaves game after collision
    Michael Taylor was removed from Thursday's game against the Padres after crashing into the outfield wall.

    Advice: Taylor was attempting to track down a deep drive off the bat of Melvin Upton when he leaped and crashed into the outfield wall at full speed. The injury is believed to have occurred to his right knee, though the severity is unknown at the moment. The Nationals should have an update on his status after the game. Thursday, 7:07 pm
  • Travis d'Arnaud sitting out Wednesday
    Travis d'Arnaud is not in the Mets' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: It's just a day off. Anthony Recker is catching while d'Arnaud rests. Wednesday, 12:49 pm
  • Mark Teixeira sitting out on Wednesday
    Mark Teixeira is not in the Yankees' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Teixeira returned to action on Tuesday, but the Yanks have decided to rest his ailing right leg again for Wednesday's afternoon game with an off day coming Thursday. He should be back in there Friday. Greg Bird is at first base Wednesday. Wednesday, 8:11 am
  • Cespedes homers again, Mets win 5th straight
    Yoenis Cespedes went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run as the Mets took down the Phillies on Tuesday to win their fifth consecutive game.

    Advice: The Mets hit eight home runs on Monday and it appeared they were going to give the fans in Philadelphia an encore performance when Yoenis Cespedes belted a Jerome Williams offering to right-center for a two-run home run in the first inning. But it was the Mets' only homer of the evening. The outfielder has gone yard five times in his last five games, now with 25 on the season along with 81 RBI. Cespedes is batting .306/.346/.582 as a Met. Tuesday, 8:34 pm
  • Grichuk (elbow) yet to resume activities
    Randal Grichuk (elbow) has yet to resume baseball activities.

    Advice: Grichuk was placed on the disabled list a little over a week ago with a muscle strain and low-grade ligament sprain in his right elbow. The Cardinals aren't overly concerned that it will be a long-term absence, but expect them to err on the side of caution since his ligament is involved. Tuesday, 5:53 pm
    15-Day DL
    1:05 pm x @SF
  • CC Sabathia (knee) hopes for quick return
    CC Sabathia (knee) said Tuesday that he hopes to return from the disabled list when he's first eligible.

    Advice: Sabathia has an arthritic right knee, but he received good news when he went for a second opinion Tuesday in New York. Yankees manager Joe Girardi indicated Monday that the southpaw could be done for the season, but he's aiming for a quick return. Sabathia has struggled to the tune of a 5.27 ERA this season. Tuesday, 12:42 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Teixeira (shin) returns to Yanks' lineup
    Mark Teixeira (shin) returned to the Yankees' lineup for Tuesday's game against the Astros.

    Advice: Teixeira hasn't played since last Monday due to a deep bone bruise in his right shin, but he was all set to pinch hit Monday before Carlos Beltran's game-winning sacrifice fly. He's playing first base and batting cleanup against Astros ace Dallas Keuchel. Tuesday, 12:32 pm
  • Cespedes homers as Mets set HR record
    Yoenis Cespedes hit the Mets' eighth home run in Monday's slaughtering of the Phillies, helping set a franchise record.

    Advice: The Mets hit seven home runs through the first six innings and needed one more to set a franchise record. It wouldn't happen until Yoenis Cespedes drove a two-run home run off of the facing of the second deck in left field at Citizens Bank Park. Cespedes has been exactly what the Mets needed as he's homered six times and knocked in 18 runs in 21 games since coming over from the Tigers. Monday, 8:32 pm
  • Flores hits two of Mets' eight homers vs. PHI
    Wilmer Flores went 3-for-6 with a double, two home runs, and five RBI as the Mets demolished the Phillies on Monday.

    Advice: The Mets set a franchise record with eight home runs. Flores hit a two-run shot in the fourth inning off of Adam Morgan, and followed up with a three-run blast in the fifth against Hector Neris, helping the Mets reclaim the lead. Flores is on a six-game hitting streak and a five-game RBI streak. Overall, he's slashing .265/.298/.418 with 14 home runs and 54 RBI. Monday, 8:25 pm
  • CC Sabathia (knee) to get second opinion
    CC Sabathia (knee) will receive a second opinion in New York on Tuesday.

    Advice: Yankees manager Joe Girardi said earlier Monday that Sabathia could be done for the season with a right knee injury, but the left-hander will do his best to make it back. "That’s the plan, to try to be back out on the field," Sabathia said. More should be known about his chances on Tuesday. Monday, 8:16 pm
    15-Day DL
  • CC Sabathia (knee) could be done for season
    Yankees placed LHP CC Sabathia on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee injury.

    Advice: Yankees manager Joe Girardi said while making the announcement that Sabathia could be done for the year. Sabathia had surgery on his right knee last season and has needed it drained on two different occasions this summer. If his 2015 is indeed over, the veteran southpaw will finish up with a 5.27 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, and 113/37 K/BB ratio in 138 1/3 innings. He's owed $25 million in 2016. Monday, 1:04 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Mark Teixeira (shin) out of lineup again Mon.
    Mark Teixeira (shin) is out of the Yankees' starting lineup again on Monday night against the Astros.

    Advice: Greg Bird will get another start at first base as Teixeira continues to nurse a deep bone bruise in his right shin. The veteran is still considered day-to-day and could be available to pinch-hit Monday. He hasn't appeared in a game for the Yankees in a week but was able to take pregame batting practice on Monday afternoon. Aug 24, 12:36 pm
  • CC Sabathia (knee) expected to land on DL
    Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Sunday that he expects CC Sabathia (knee) to be placed on the disabled list.

    Advice: Sabathia was scheduled to undergo an MRI after leaving Sunday's start with discomfort in his right knee. As the team had been planning to move to a six-man rotation upon the return of Michael Pineda on Wednesday, it seems likely they'll now opt to keep the traditional five-man alignment until Sabathia is ready to return. Aug 23, 2:19 pm
    15-Day DL
  • CC Sabathia to undergo MRI on right knee
    CC Sabathia will undergo an MRI after leaving Sunday's start with discomfort in his right knee.

    Advice: That's the knee he had surgery on last season and the one he's had drained on two occasions since spring training. The Yankees had been slated to go to a six-man rotation with Michael Pineda's (forearm) return this week, but it's possible Pineda might now just replace Sabathia. Aug 23, 11:56 am
    15-Day DL
  • CC Sabathia exits with undisclosed injury
    CC Sabathia left Sunday's start against the Indians with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: Sabathia tallied a strikeout for his second out of the third inning but then had to walk off the field with an apparent malady. The Yankees should provide an update on him shortly. Aug 23, 11:22 am
    15-Day DL
  • Travis d'Arnaud sitting out on Sunday
    Travis d'Arnaud is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's just getting a breather. Anthony Recker is behind the dish in d'Arnaud's place. Aug 23, 10:39 am
  • Mark Teixeira (shin) remains out of lineup
    Mark Teixeira (shin) remained out of the Yankees' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Teixeira was slated to take batting practice Sunday, but apparently he's still not well enough to return to action. Greg Bird will continue to hold down first base until Teixeira is ready. Aug 23, 7:38 am
  • Mark Teixeira (shin) to take BP Sunday
    Mark Teixeira (shin) is expected to take batting practice on Sunday.

    Advice: It would be his first baseball activities since he suffered a deep bone bruise on his right shin when he fouled a ball off his leg Monday. It's possible Teixeira will return to the lineup Sunday if he takes BP and feels alright. Aug 23, 7:18 am
  • Carlos Rodon solid for seven innings
    Carlos Rodon yielded three runs -- one earned -- over seven innings against the Mariners on Saturday.

    Advice: A Carlos Sanchez error opened the door for a three-run sixth inning that could have been quite a bit worse if Rodon didn't induce a double-play ball from Jesus Montero with two runs already in. Rodon threw 116 pitches in this one, which could be considered a few too many with the White Sox not going anywhere this year. He really seems to have hit his stride these last three starts, but one wonders if fatigue will become a factor down the stretch. Aug 22, 10:10 pm
  • Teixeia remains out of Yanks lineup Saturday
    Mark Teixeira (shin) remains out of the Yankees starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: The veteran slugger hasn't played since sustaining a deep bone bruise on his right shin during Monday's game. Greg Bird will once again get the start at first base in his absence and bat fifth for the Bombers. Aug 22, 8:39 am
  • Cespedes has 3 HR, 7 RBI night vs. Rockies
    Yoenis Cespedes filled up the box score in Friday's 14-9 win over the Rockies, going 5-for-6 with three home runs, seven RBI, five runs scored, and a stolen base.

    Advice: It was the Yoenis Cespedes Show in Colorado. He launched a grand slam in the second inning before adding a solo shot in the fourth and a two-run blast in the sixth. It was the first three-homer game of his career. He's just the fifth player in MLB history to amass five hits, three home runs, five runs scored, and seven RBI in the same game, joining Walker Cooper (1949), Gil Hodges (1950), Joe Adcock (1954), and Shawn Green (2002). The Mets' big acquisition at the trade deadline is paying off. Aug 21, 10:07 pm
  • D'Arnaud smacks solo homer vs. Rockies
    Travis d'Arnaud smacked a solo homer in a win over the Rockies on Friday.

    Advice: The Mets pounded out 16 hits in Friday's win and every starter (with the exception of Bartolo Colon) had at least one hit. D'Arnaud entered Friday's action hitting just .200 (10-for-50) with two homers and three doubles since coming off the disabled list, but he's capable of a strong finish if he can remain healthy. Aug 21, 10:04 pm
  • Parra hits three-run homer vs. Twins
    Gerardo Parra clubbed a three-run homer Friday against the Twins.

    Advice: Parra's hot hitting has continued since coming over to the Orioles at the trade deadline. He has hit safely in eight straight games and has five home runs over his first 19 games in his new digs. Aug 21, 7:36 pm
  • Mark Teixeira (shin) out again on Friday
    Mark Teixeira (shin) remains out of the Yankees' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He hasn't played since suffering a deep bone bruise in his right shin on Monday. Teixeira did report improvement Thursday, so it appears at this point that he'll avoid the disabled list. Greg Bird is at first base again Friday. Aug 21, 12:27 pm
  • Michael Taylor hits long home run
    Michael Taylor crushed his 11th homer Thursday off the Rockies' Yohan Flande.

    Advice: Statcast had the homer at 490 feet, but other estimates have come in closer to the 470-foot range. Either way, it was a true blast. Taylor hasn't been an on-base guy as a rookie, but his power-speed combination makes him awfully intriguing going forward. Aug 20, 9:00 pm
  • Teixeira (shin) out of lineup again Thursday
    Mark Teixeira (shin) is out of the Yankees' lineup again Thursday against the Indians.

    Advice: Teixeira will miss his second straight game with a deep bone bruise in his shin, but things are looking up. "He’s better today," said Yankees manager Joe Girardi. "Today we saw improvement. Not in the lineup yet, but he’s better." The Yankees remain confident that he'll avoid a stint on the disabled list. Greg Bird, who hit two homers on Wednesday, will continue to fill in for now. Aug 20, 2:42 pm
  • Rangers put Josh Hamilton (knee) on the DL
    Rangers placed OF Josh Hamilton on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 16, with left knee inflammation.

    Advice: The soreness wasn't going away, so the Rangers have decided to get Hamilton some extended rest. He should be ready to rock when his 15 days are up. This carves out some playing time for newcomer Will Venable, who suddenly looks a lot more attractive in mixed fantasy leagues. Aug 20, 12:21 pm
    15-Day DL
