  • Darren O'Day (hamstring) has setback
    Darren O'Day's (hamstring) next scheduled bullpen session is up in the air after he felt continued discomfort the last time he threw off a mound.

    Advice: "We are just trying to take it slow and do it right, so I don’t feel it again," O’Day said. "There’s been days where I felt like I was ready for a game, and then two days later it wouldn't feel nearly as well. It’s tough. It’s right on the bone. There’s not a ton of blood supply, as far as I understand, so it takes a while to scar down and re-attach. And the way I pitch, I stress that area quite a bit." It had been looking like O'Day was near a return, but this sounds like a notable setback. We'll have to wait and see how he progresses, but the Orioles might not get him back before the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:50 am

  • Bryan Morris (back) moved to 60-day DL
    Marlins transferred RHP Bryan Morris from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The Marlins needed an extra 40-man roster spot for the addition of Fernando Rodney. Morris might be done for the season following back surgery. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:04 am

  • Jorge Rondon outrighted to Triple-A
    Pirates sent RHP Jorge Rondon outright to Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: Rondon cleared waivers after being designated for assignment. He's now off the 40-man roster but remains in the organization. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:03 am

  • K-Rod works scoreless frame for 22nd save
    Francisco Rodriguez pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Rays on Thursday to earn his 22nd save.

    Advice: K-Rod almost certainly didn't expect to be pitching the ninth inning when the Tigers entered the inning down 7-2, but eight runs later he was called on to protect a three-run lead. He did so by allowing a solitary hit but no further damage. He's now got 22 saves in 24 chances to go with a 3.14 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 29/10 K/BB ratio over 28 2/3 innings of work this year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:43 pm
  • Finnegan lasts just 2 1/3 innings versus Nats
    Brandon Finnegan wasn't long for Thursday's beatdown at the hands of the Nationals, allowing eight runs over 2 1/3 innings before exiting.

    Advice: Finnegan was a combination of bad and wild that saw three of the Nationals' five hits go for extra bases, including two home runs, with five walks allowed as well. The loss was his third in a row to drop him to 3-7, and his ERA has risen from 3.61 to 4.48 with those three losses. If an easy matchup is what Finnegan needs to get back on track, it's not what he'll get, as the Reds will travel to face the Cubs on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • Young walks six, lasts four innings vs. Cards
    Chris Young walked six while allowing one run over four innings Thursday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Young surrendered just one hit on the evening, a solo home run by Brandon Moss, but his inefficiency precluded him from qualifying for his third win. With the no-decision, he remained 2-7 with a 6.24 ERA and 1.58 WHIP through 57 2/3 innings this year. An interleague date with the Blue Jays in Toronto on Tuesday isn't much more appealing for the right-hander. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Cotham staying in Pensacola through July 11
    Caleb Cotham (shoulder) is expected to make at least five rehab appearances for Double-A Pensacola before joining the Reds' bullpen.

    Advice: He'll be with the team through at least July 11, meaning Cotham's return to the big leagues won't come until after the All-Star break. It's already a lost year for Cincinnati so there's no point in rushing Cotham back if he's not 100 percent. The 28-year-old pitched to an ugly 7.40 ERA over 23 appearances for the Reds before getting hurt. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:58 pm

  • Athletics place Sean Doolittle on 15-day DL
    Athletics placed LHP Sean Doolittle on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 26, with a strained left shoulder.

    Advice: The oft-injured southpaw is heading back to the disabled list, though this soreness is not in the same area that troubled him in 2015. We should know more on his status after he gets his MRI results back. Doolittle compiled a 2.93 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 35/8 K/BB ratio over 30 2/3 innings before landing on the shelf.

  • Athletics recall Andrew Triggs from Triple-A
    Athletics recalled RHP Andrew Triggs from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: He'll help to provide depth in a depleted A's bullpen. Triggs owns a 7.29 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 19/5 K/BB ratio over 21 innings with the big league club this season. He'll work in middle relief. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:55 pm
  • Caleb Cotham (shoulder) ready for rehab games
    Caleb Cotham (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Pensacola on Thursday.

    Advice: Cotham has been out all month with shoulder inflammation. He would appear to have a shot to make it back before the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:41 pm

  • Erasmo Ramirez 'still in play' for Dodgers
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal hears that Erasmo Ramirez is "still in play" for the Dodgers even after they acquired Bud Norris.

    Advice: Rosenthal does note, however, that the "need is not as acute" anymore. Ramirez has been used almost exclusively as a reliever with the Rays this season but probably wouldn't take too long to get stretched out to start. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:06 pm
  • Ryan Tepera optioned to Triple-A
    Blue Jays optioned RHP Ryan Tepera to Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Tepera holds a 5.79 ERA over five relief appearances with the Jays this season. He'll probably get another shot later this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:51 am

  • Brett Cecil (lat) activated from DL
    Blue Jays activated LHP Brett Cecil from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Cecil missed six weeks of action with a lat strain. He'll eventually return to a setup role for the Jays, although they could ease him back into high-leverage situations. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:50 am
  • Casey Kelly optioned to Triple-A
    Braves optioned RHP Casey Kelly to Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Kelly has posted a 5.49 ERA over nine appearances -- one start -- for the Braves this season. He's clearing room for the return of Michael Foltynewicz. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:41 am

  • Sean Gilmartin optioned to Triple-A
    Mets optioned LHP Sean Gilmartin to Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Gilmartin was knocked around for seven runs over three innings in his last two appearances out of the bullpen. The Mets are bringing up a fresh arm to replace him. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:05 am

  • Chad Green to make spot start Sunday
    Chad Green will be recalled to start on Sunday versus the Padres.

    Advice: He's making a spot start, as the Yankees wanted to push CC Sabathia back a day to give him a little extra rest. Green has put up a 7.20 ERA in his brief time with the big club this season but boasts a 1.54 ERA with a strikeout per inning at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Deep leaguers might consider him as a streaming option in a juicy matchup. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:08 am

  • Doolittle dealing with shoulder soreness
    Sean Doolittle's availability for Wednesday's game against the Giants is uncertain due to shoulder soreness.

    Advice: Doolittle also dealt with a shoulder injury last season, but he said this new soreness is not in the same area as that. He could even be available to pitch against the Giants, as he is testing his arm in the bullpen to see if his shoulder will allow him to take the mound if necessary. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:33 pm

  • Report: Dodgers interested in Erasmo Ramirez
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Dodgers are interested in Rays right-hander Erasmo Ramirez.

    Advice: The idea would be to use Ramirez as a stopgap option in the starting rotation. Ramirez has pitched almost exclusively in relief with the Rays this season while posting a 3.68 ERA and 38/12 K/BB ratio in 51 1/3 innings, but he has had success as a starter in the past. He just became arbitration-eligible for the first time last winter as a Super Two player, so the Rays would probably seek a nice piece in return in order to get a deal done with Andrew Friedman and company. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:39 pm
  • Francisco Rodriguez records save No. 21
    Francisco Rodriguez nailed down his 21st save of the season with a scoreless frame in Tuesday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: K-Rod yielded a two-out walk to Derek Dietrich but got a flyout to end it and preserve the three-run lead. The veteran closer has converted 19-of-21 save chances this season and has been excellent since the beginning of May. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:13 pm
  • Braves recall RHP Kelly from Triple-A
    Braves recalled RHP Casey Kelly from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Kelly will replace the injured John Gant (oblique) on the active roster. The Braves haven't made an official decision, but he could make a spot start Wednesday against the Indians. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:11 pm

  • A's drawing trade interest in Sean Doolittle
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Athletics are drawing trade interest in reliever Sean Doolittle.

    Advice: Rosenthal notes that demand could be considerable if the Yankees decide against breaking up their three-headed monster of Aroldis Chapman, Andrew Miller, and Dellin Betances. The A's don't necessarily have a sense of urgency to move Doolittle, as he's signed through 2019 at a reasonable rate with an affordable club option for 2020. But his contract also makes him more attractive on the trade market. Doolittle owns a 2.93 ERA and 35/8 K/BB ratio over 30 2/3 innings this season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:59 pm

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

    Advice: The Blue Jays wanted to have another right-handed arm in their bullpen, so Tepera will take the place of Chad Girodo who was sent to Triple-A on Sunday. The 28-year-old owns an 8.10 ERA, 2.40 WHIP and 2/3 K/BB ratio over 3 1/3 innings with the Jays this season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:08 pm

  • O'Day (hamstring) throws a bullpen on Saturday
    Darren O'Day (hamstring) threw a bullpen session between games on Saturday.

    Advice: The Orioles were hosting a doubleheader against Tampa Bay. O'Day will throw another bullpen session before advancing to simulated work when the Orioles begin their road trip on Tuesday. It's unclear if he'll need a rehab assignment before returning to the Baltimore pen. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:40 pm

  • Young gets launched into orbit by Astros
    Chris Young was thrashed for seven earned runs in only 2 1/3 innings in a loss to the Astros on Saturday.

    Advice: Nothing he threw was working. He walked four batters and gave up seven hits, two of which left the yard. He falls to 2-7 with a 6.54 ERA on the season. He has not been the same pitcher that went 11-6 with a 3.03 ERA last year. Young is striking out significantly more batters this year than last yet the results have been awful so far. Home runs have been the culprit as he has already given up an eye-popping 21 longballs in 53 2/3 innings after giving up 16 homers in 123 1/3 innings last year. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:22 pm
  • Finnegan whiffs eight in quality-start loss
    Brandon Finnegan struck out eight while allowing three runs over 6 2/3 innings in a loss to the Padres on Saturday.

    Advice: Finnegan gave up five hits and walked three, and it was his counterpart, Drew Pomeranz, who delivered most of the damage with a solo home run and an RBI single. The loss dropped Finnegan to 3-6 despite a passable 3.83 ERA in 16 starts. He's still walking too many batters but the 23-year-old has flashed some of the promise that made the Reds covet him in the Johnny Cueto deal a year ago. Finnegan will next take on the Nationals on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:02 pm
  • Kelly could start for Braves next week
    Casey Kelly could take Aaron Blair's spot in the Braves' rotation next Wednesday against the Indians.

    Advice: Blair was demoted after an ugly start Friday against the Mets. Kelly, who was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett earlier this month, owns a 5.79 ERA and 5/6 K/BB ratio in 18 2/3 innings over one start and seven relief appearances with the Braves this season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:03 pm

  • Cecil (lat) moves up to Triple-A
    Brett Cecil (lat) will continue his minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Cecil, who is making his way back from a torn lat muscle, allowed one run in two innings with four strikeouts over two appearances with High-A Dunedin. The southpaw will likely make another couple of appearances before rejoining the Blue Jays. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:12 pm
  • Jorge Rondon designated for assignment
    Pirates designated RHP Jorge Rondon for assignment.

    Advice: Rondon was pummeled for seven runs over 3 2/3 frames in his brief time with the big club. He stands a decent chance of clearing waivers. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:29 pm

  • Chad Green impresses in seven-inning gem
    Yankees RHP prospect Chad Green delivered nine strikeouts over seven shutout frames Wednesday in a win for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: He scattered two hits and one walk. Green retired the final 13 hitters he faced while lowering his season ERA to 1.67, second-lowest in the International League. He also holds the IL's third-lowest WHIP at 1.00. Green started a game for the Yankees in May and made a relief appearance for the Bombers earlier this month. Until a full-time job opens up at the major league level, the 25-year-old will continue to jump back and forth between the Bronx and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:28 am

  • O'Day (hamstring) set for half-mound workout
    Darren O'Day (hamstring) is scheduled to throw from a half-mound on Thursday.

    Advice: If that goes smoothly, his next step will be full-mound work. And the rest of his rehab should progress quickly from there. O'Day has been on the disabled list since June 2 because of a right hamstring strain. Look for him to return to the O's around early July. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:43 am

  • Brett Cecil (lat) set for rehab appearances
    Brett Cecil (lat) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A Dunedin.

    Advice: Cecil has been out for the last month because of a lat strain and will probably need 3-4 minor league rehab appearances. He had a 5.23 ERA and 1.94 WHIP in 10 1/3 innings with the Jays before suffering the injury. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:44 pm
  • Mets call up lefty Sean Gilmartin
    Mets recalled LHP Sean Gilmartin from Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: He'll replace the injured Jim Henderson (shoulder) in the Mets' bullpen. The 26-year-old has made two appearances with the Mets this season and posted a 2.67 ERA in 50 games last season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:27 pm

  • Mets appear set to call up Gilmart
    Adam Rubin of ESPN New York hears that left-hander Sean Gilmartin is headed to New York from Las Vegas.

    Advice: No word yet on the corresponding roster move, but it appears that Jim Henderson (shoulder) could be headed to the disabled list. Gilmartin has made two appearances with the Mets this year and owns a 4.48 ERA over 12 starts in Triple-A this year. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:09 am
