  • Roenis Elias (forearm) 'checked out fine'
    Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said that Roenis Elias "checked out fine" Tuesday after exiting Monday's start with a left forearm cramp.

    Advice: Elias left the outing after 90 pitches when he cramped up, but it sounds like he'll be fine. The left-hander will start this weekend against the Orioles.

  • Miguel Gonzalez recalled from Triple-A
    Orioles recalled RHP Miguel Gonzalez from Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: Gonzalez will start on Tuesday against the Angels after being optioned prior to the All-Star break so that he could continue pitching. He has a 4.04 ERA and 1.45 WHIP on the season and isn't a good streaming option Tuesday.

  • Ubaldo Jimenez to throw 'pen session Wed.
    Ubaldo Jimenez (ankle) will be cleared for a rehab assignment if a bullpen session on Wednesday goes well.

    Advice: Jimenez had been scheduled to begin his rehab assignment Wednesday, but the Orioles decided to have him throw one more 'pen session first. He should only need one rehab start, putting him in line to rejoin the rotation next week if all goes well.

  • Hanrahan (elbow) a 'longshot' to pitch in '14
    Lynn Henning of the Detroit News reports that Joel Hanrahan (elbow) is "still a longshot" to pitch for the Tigers this season.

    Advice: Making his way back from Tommy John surgery, Hanrahan is throwing bullpen sessions in extended spring training but has yet to face hitters and it's not clear when he might be ready to do so. The veteran reliever was only guaranteed $1 million by the Tigers, so while his lack of progress is disappointing, it's not a big blow.

  • Rockies recall Yohan Flande from Triple-A
    Rockies recalled LHP Yohan Flande from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Flande will make a spot start for the Rockies on Tuesday night against the Nationals. He posted a rough 7.36 ERA and 1.70 WHIP in three starts earlier this season.
    Today, 2:46 pm
  • 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.
    Today, 1:05 pm
  • Rangers activate Martinez for Tuesday start
    Rangers activated RHP Nick Martinez from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Martinez missed a little over two weeks with a left side injury. He will return to the Rangers' starting rotation on Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium. The 23-year-old righty owns a rough 5.10 ERA and 1.69 WHIP this season.

  • Blue Jays call up Rogers from Triple-A
    Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Esmil Rogers from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Rogers posted a 6.97 ERA over 16 appearances at the major league level earlier this season, but he's back because the Blue Jays need a fresh arm for their bullpen. Look for him to pitch in long relief.

  • Blue Jays call up prospect Aaron Sanchez
    Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Aaron Sanchez from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Sanchez is a highly-regarded starting pitching prospect, but the Jays will break him into the majors as a reliever. The 22-year-old has posted a 3.95 ERA and 84/57 K/BB ratio over 100 1/3 innings this season between Double- and Triple-A.

  • 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.

  • Blue Jays to call up Rogers from Triple-A
    Esmil Rogers is expected to be called up from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.

    Advice: Rogers was outrighted off the 40-man roster back in May, but the Blue Jays need a fresh arm in their bullpen. The 28-year-old owns a 6.97 ERA over 16 appearances at the major league level this season and figures to pitch in long relief.

  • 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.

  • Angels won't limit Garrett Richards' workload
    Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said Monday that the club has no plans to temporarily shut down Garrett Richards in order to limit his workload.

    Advice: Richards is already at 131 1/3 innings, just a tad shy of the 145 innings he threw last season. He has never thrown more than 157 innings in a season before in pro ball, but Dipoto said there haven't been any discussions about giving him a break. "Not at all," said Dipoto. "Garrett has thrown from end to end in a season. His innings have not escalated to the point where they're 200-plus, but Garrett throws the ball as easily as anybody you'll ever see. It's not a violent delivery, it's not a violent package. He maintains velocity pretty easily." Richards is currently on pace for 216 2/3 innings and could pitch more if the Angels play deep into October.

  • Blue Jays calling up prospect Aaron Sanchez
    Shi Davidi of reports that the Blue Jays plan to call up prospect right-hander Aaron Sanchez on Tuesday.

    Advice: Sanchez was just shifted to the bullpen last week in Triple-A, which is where he'll pitch in his first taste of the majors. The 22-year-old has posted a 3.95 ERA and 84/57 K/BB ratio over 100 1/3 innings this season between Double- and Triple-A. He still has a promising future as a starter, but the Jays are hoping he can make an impact down the stretch in a relief role.

  • 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.
    Today, 1:24 am
  • Norris allows 2 runs in Monday's win over LAA
    In his return to the rotation, Bud Norris allowed two earned runs over 6 2/3 innings Monday against the Angels.

    Advice: Demoted prior to the All-Star break to keep him on a regular pitching schedule, Norris walked two and allowed eight hits, but he also struck out eight. The right-hander struggled in his one-start sojourn in Double-A, so it was nice to see a quick return to form at the game's highest level. Norris (8-6, 3.78 ERA) stays out West next time around, taking on the Mariners this weekend in Seattle.

  • Doug Fister picks up ninth win
    Doug Fister gave up two runs and nine hits in 5 2/3 innings Monday in a win over the Rockies.

    Advice: Fister wasn't at his best tonight, but he didn't need to be against a Rockies lineup missing Troy Tulowitzki, Justin Morneau and Michael Cuddyer. He still managed to take a shutout into the sixth inning before giving up five hits and a walk in the frame. Fortunately, Aaron Barrett was able to strand the bases loaded by striking out Brandon Barnes.

  • Elias leaves with forearm cramp, K's eight
    Roenis Elias left with a forearm cramp on Monday, but not before striking out eight and allowing one run on five hits over 5 1/3 innings against the Mets.

    Advice: The Mariners were just being cautious with their young left-hander -- he was at 90 pitches and would have been pulled after the inning anyway -- and it would be surprising if his next start were pushed back. Elias needed a positive outing to prevent talk of a demotion, and he got it, tying for his second highest strikeout total of the season. All shouldn't be forgiven -- the 25-year-old left-hander was 0-3 while getting lit up for a 10.05 ERA over his previous three outings, and had coughed up four runs or more in five of seven to close out the first half -- but he just bought himself some leash. Assuming the injury isn't more serious than the team is letting on, Elias hosts the Orioles this weekend.
    Yesterday, 9:26 pm
  • Roenis Elias exits with apparent arm injury
    Roenis Elias left Monday's game against the Mets with an apparent arm injury.

    Advice: Elias was visited by the trainer and seen stretching out his fingers/hand, so he could be dealing with some tightness in his forearm. The Mariners should provide more on his status shortly. Elias allowed one run while striking out eight over 5 1/3 innings before exiting.
    Yesterday, 8:58 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.

  • Bud Norris recalled to start Monday
    Orioles recalled RHP Bud Norris from Double-A Bowie.

    Advice: Norris was sent down prior to the All-Star break in order to keep pitching. He'll make his return to the Orioles' rotation on Monday against the Angels. Norris holds a 3.96 ERA and 1.19 WHIP over 15 starts this season.
    Yesterday, 4:08 pm
  • Yohan Flande to start for Rockies Tuesday
    Yohan Flande will be recalled to start on Tuesday against the Nationals.

    Advice: The Rockies have decided to give Eddie Butler more time in the minors, and they've opted for Flande over Chris Capuano to start Tuesday's game. Flande held a 7.36 ERA and 1.70 WHIP over three starts earlier this season and can be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
    Yesterday, 3:36 pm
  • 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.
    Yesterday, 2:21 pm
  • Miguel Gonzalez to return Tuesday vs. ANA
    Miguel Gonzalez will return to the Orioles' starting rotation on Tuesday against the Angels.

    Advice: Gonzalez was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk before the All-Star break so that he could get in work during the long layoff. He has a 4.04 ERA and 1.45 WHIP on the season and isn't a good fantasy play against the Halos.
    Yesterday, 12:29 pm
  • Ubaldo (ankle) won't make rehab start on Wed.
    Ubaldo Jimenez (ankle) has been scratched from a scheduled Wednesday rehab start.

    Advice: Jimenez felt some lingering discomfort in his sprained right ankle Sunday while attempting to throw a bullpen session. "I'm not where I should be to be able to go into a game," the right-hander told reporters. "I'll throw another bullpen and go from there." Ubaldo, who has a rough 4.52 ERA and 1.54 WHIP in his first year with Baltimore, can now be ruled out until August.

  • 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.
    Sunday, 3:15 pm
  • 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.
    Sunday, 11:09 am
  • 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.
    Sunday, 8:28 am
  • Garrett Richards goes eight strong
    Garrett Richards limited the Mariners to one run and three hits in eight innings on Saturday.

    Advice: Richards wasn't involved in the decision in his latest gem, so his seven-game winning streak is still intact. He's allowed a total of four hits in 15 innings against the Mariners this season, and he's 11-2 with a 2.47 ERA overall. Yeah, he really should have been an All-Star.
    Saturday, 10:19 pm
  • Tigers transfer Joel Hanrahan to 60-day DL
    Tigers transferred RHP Joel Hanrahan from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: This was merely done as a procedural move to clear a roster spot for Drew VerHagen who is making his major league debut with Saturday's start against the Indians. Hanrahan has begun to make progress toward a return, but isn't expected to join the Tigers bullpen until some point in August.

  • Jimenez (ankle) to throw bullpen Sunday
    Ubaldo Jimenez (ankle) will throw a bullpen session on Sunday, and if all goes well he will progress to pitching in a minor league rehab game on Wednesday.

    Advice: The veteran right-hander may only need one start in the minor leagues, and could rejoin the Orioles rotation when they return home to Baltimore on July 29.

  • Blue Jays move Aaron Sanchez to bullpen
    Blue Jays pitching prospect Aaron Sanchez has been moved to the bullpen at Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: The 22-year-old right-hander will likely be called up to Toronto once he gets comfortable in his new, temporary role. Sanchez is a highly-thought-of prospect and projects as a starting pitcher long term.
    Thursday, 12:11 pm
  • 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.
