  • Cory Rasmus activated, then optioned
    Angels activated RHP Cory Rasmus from the 60-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Rasmus has successfully rehabbed from core muscle surgery but needs some time in the minors to sharpen things up. He'll be back with the Angels in the second half. Rotoworld.com

  • Tom Gorzelanny designated for assignment
    Tigers designated LHP Tom Gorzelanny for assignment.

    Advice: Gorzelanny was awful in 30 appearances for the Tigers, putting up a 6.75 ERA and 2.00 WHIP. He figures to clear waivers and should get a shot somewhere else given his track record. Rotoworld.com

  • Tigers DFA Joba Chamberlain, Tom Gorzelanny
    Tigers designated RHP Joba Chamberlain for assignment.

    Advice: Chamberlain pitched well for the Tigers last season and wound up resigning over the winter. He went on to post a 4.09 ERA and 1.68 WHIP over 30 appearances and was particularly bad of late with eight runs allowed over his last seven games. He'll clear waivers and get a shot elsewhere. Detroit also designated Tom Gorzelanny for assignment as they shake up their bullpen. Rotoworld.com

  • Pat Venditte (shoulder) nearing mound work
    Pat Venditte (shoulder) could resume throwing off a mound by the All-Star break.

    Advice: Venditte extended his catch to 90 feet on Wednesday, making 40 throws with each arm (it's his right shoulder that caused a disabled list stint). He should be ready to return by the end of July if all goes well. Rotoworld.com

  • Felix Doubront called up from Triple-A
    Blue Jays purchased the contract of LHP Felix Doubront from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: The Jays need a fifth starter following the demotion of Matt Boyd, although it's unclear whether Doubront will immediately be thrust into the rotation. The left-hander has earned a shot with some nice work at Buffalo, where he's posted a 2.44 ERA and 43/18 K/BB ratio over 48 innings. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Tepera recalled from Triple-A
    Blue Jays recalled RHP Ryan Tepera from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Tepera held a 2.77 ERA, 0.78 WHIP and 9/1 K/BB ratio over 13 innings of work earlier this season out of the Jays' bullpen. He'll be used in middle relief. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Morrow (shoulder) throws off mound
    Brandon Morrow (shoulder) threw a bullpen session on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's slated to throw off the bump again on Saturday. Morrow has hit some bumps in the road in his recovery from inflammation in his right shoulder, but at least for the moment he's starting to get back on track. There remains no timetable for his return. Rotoworld.com

  • David Goforth recalled from Triple-A
    Brewers recalled RHP David Goforth from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Goforth didn't allow a run in four appearances spanning 2 1/3 innings earlier this season with the Brewers. He'll be a middle reliever. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 7:00 am
  • Corey Knebel optioned to Triple-A
    Brewers optioned RHP Corey Knebel to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: It's a surprise, as Knebel has pitched well with a 2.95 ERA and 19 strikeouts over 21 1/3 innings. Tyler Cravy and David Goforth have been added to the bullpen. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Gausman likely to get another start
    Kevin Gausman traveled with the Orioles for their weekend series in Chicago.

    Advice: It's a good sign that he's expected to receive at least one more start. The expectation had been that Gausman would be sent down after a spot start Thursday, but he was so good over 6 1/3 scoreless innings that it appears the O's are keeping him around. Gausman could permanently supplant the disappointing Bud Norris in the rotation if he keeps pitching well. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Volstad outrighted to Triple-A
    Pirates sent RHP Chris Volstad outright to Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: Volstad had been designated for assignment after a two-inning scoreless appearance with the big club. He returns to a 3.43 ERA at Indy. Rotoworld.com

  • Dan Straily recalled from Triple-A
    Astros recalled RHP Dan Straily from Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Straily will take the ball on Friday against the Red Sox. He owns an uninspiring 4.06 ERA and 1.38 WHIP for Fresno this season, although it's come along with a nice 70/14 K/BB ratio over 77 2/3 innings. He could get a couple starts with the big club until Scott Feldman (knee) is ready to return. Rotoworld.com

  • Rusin allows only 1 ER in loss to the D'Backs
    Chris Rusin allowed six hits and three runs -- one earned -- over six frames in a loss to Arizona on Thursday.

    Advice: Rusin whiffed six and walked two. He's now 3-3 with a 4.27 ERA in 46-plus innings, surpassing expectations, but that will change any day now, as his 1.55 WHIP and 32/14 K/BB rate both portend rough times ahead. Steer clear in fantasy. Rotoworld.com

  • Kimbrel notches 20th save of season
    Craig Kimbrel completed a scoreless 11th inning Thursday against the Cardinals for his 20th save of the season.

    Advice: Asked to hold a two-run lead, Kimbrel gave up a leadoff single to Kolten Wong before retiring the next three batters. The 27-year-old has allowed just one earned run over his last 15 appearances, pulling his ERA down from 5.74 to 3.30 in the process. He's been getting better results of late, but his walks are still way up from where he's been in recent years. Rotoworld.com

  • Gausman fans seven over 6 1/3 shutout frames
    Kevin Gausman dazzled in a spot start against the Rangers on Thursday, racking up seven strikeouts over 6 1/3 scoreless innings.

    Advice: Gausman surrendered just four hits and two walks in the impressive outing. While he's supposed to be heading back to Triple-A Norfolk, it's hard to envision the Orioles keeping the struggling Bud Norris in the rotation much longer with Gausman ready to take over. His fantasy value the remainder of the season entirely hinges on him securing a spot in the starting rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Gausman recalled for Thursday's start
    Orioles recalled RHP Kevin Gausman from Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: Tyler Wilson was sent down in the corresponding roster move. Thursday's start against Texas will be Gausman's second of the season. He scattered two runs over five innings in a no-decision June 20 against Toronto. The Orioles played a doubleheader on Sunday and want to keep their starters on normal rest. Gausman will probably return to Norfolk after Thursday's outing. Rotoworld.com

  • Mariners cut veteran Justin Germano
    Mariners released RHP Justin Germano.

    Advice: He and left-hander Rafael Perez both opted out of their minor league contracts. Germano pitched well for Triple-A Tacoma, recording a 2.83 ERA over 18 outings before his release. The 32-year-old has made 96 major league appearances with seven different teams. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Straily owns a 4.06 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 70/14 K/BB ratio over 77 2/3 innings with Triple-A Fresno this year. The 26-year-old will replace Brett Oberholtzer in the Astros' rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Gausman to start on Thursday
    Kevin Gausman will be recalled to start on Thursday versus the Rangers.

    Advice: The Orioles considered starting Gausman for one of the games during Sunday's doubleheader, but he'll make an abbreviated start for Triple-A Norfolk instead before taking the ball for the O's on Thursday. Gausman has compiled a 4.24 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 14/6 K/BB ratio over 17 innings with the big league club this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Rusin allows 10 hits, five runs vs. Giants
    Chris Rusin allowed 10 hits and five runs -- two earned -- over 6 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Giants on Saturday.

    Advice: Rusin was twice given multiple-run leads only to hand them back. It was the third time in his last four starts that Rusin has allowed nine hits or more, but he narrowly escaped taking his third loss in his last four games. Rusin remains 3-2 with a 4.69 ERA and 1.59 WHIP. He'll look for a better result Thursday against the Diamondbacks. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Gausman to start for Orioles on Sunday
    Kevin Gausman will be recalled from Triple-A to start one game in Sunday's doubleheader against the Indians.

    Advice: Chris Tillman, who was scheduled to start on Saturday, is expected to work in the other game. Gausman has compiled a 4.24 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 14/6 K/BB ratio over 17 innings with the big league club this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Venditte (shoulder) to play catch on Saturday
    Pat Venditte (shoulder) will resume playing catch on Saturday.

    Advice: It's the first step towards his return to the Athletics bullpen. Venditte has been sidelined since June 12 with a strained right shoulder. He isn't expected to need many throwing sessions before being ready for game action. Rotoworld.com

  • Padres transfer Brandon Morrow to 60-day DL
    Padres transferred RHP Brandon Morrow to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move is procedural to open a spot on the 40-man roster for Marcos Mateo. Morrow remains on the comeback trail from shoulder inflammation. Rotoworld.com

  • Felix Doubront in consideration for promotion
    Sportsnet's Shi Davidi reports that Felix Doubront is the "likeliest candidate" to be called up to serve as the Blue Jays' No. 5 starter.

    Advice: The Jays had been considering skipping the fifth spot for a turn, but they now might give Drew Hutchison some extra rest after he threw a season-high 109 pitches in five innings Monday. Doubront, who was inked to a minor league deal just before Opening Day, holds a 2.85 ERA and 38/14 K/BB ratio over 41 innings for Triple-A Buffalo this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Morrow (shoulder) nearing mound work
    Brandon Morrow (shoulder) hopes to throw a bullpen session this weekend.

    Advice: Morrow has expanded his long-tossing to 120 feet and is almost ready to step on the bump. While the right-hander is pointed in the right direction again after having a setback with his shoulder earlier this month, the Padres won't be putting any timetable on him anytime soon.

  • Pat Venditte (shoulder) close to throwing
    Pat Venditte (shoulder) could resume throwing by the end of the week.

    Advice: Venditte hasn't missed much time with his right shoulder strain, so he shouldn't need many throwing sessions before being ready for game action. The switch-pitcher threw 5 2/3 scoreless innings before going down. Rotoworld.com
