  • Daniel Hudson not available for Friday's game
    Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said that he'd like to stay away from using Daniel Hudson on Friday and perhaps Saturday.

    Advice: The right-hander has been heavily-relied upon in recent weeks, so Hale wants to make sure he keeps Hudson fresh down the stretch. The 28-year-old hurler owns a 3.90 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 55/22 K/BB ratio over 55 1/3 innings this season. 50 minutes ago

    Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Friday that Marcus Stroman (knee) "might come up and start for us" with as well as his rehab is progressing.

    Advice: The conventional wisdom is that Stroman would likely return in a relief role since he's missed so much time. That might still wind up being the case, but him joining the rotation isn't being ruled out. Making his way back from ACL surgery, Stroman has thrown a couple simulated games and is slated to begin a rehab assignment next week. Today, 1:42 pm

  • 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. Today, 1:39 pm
  • Odor (finger) out of Rangers' lineup again
    Rougned Odor (finger) remained out of the Rangers' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Odor hasn't played since cracking his right middle fingernail when he was hit by a grounder Tuesday. He did work out again prior to the game and should be back in there soon. Hanser Alberto is holding down second base again in Odor's place. Today, 1:23 pm

  • Craig Kimbrel claimed on revocable waivers
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Craig Kimbrel has been claimed on revocable waivers.

    Advice: Rosenthal was told by a Padres official that they have "no intention" of trading the closer. San Diego did entertain offers for Kimbrel prior to the deadline, but obviously it's not ideal to only be able to negotiate with one team. Kimbrel is owed $24 million from 2016-17 and the Padres have a $13 million club option or $1 million buyout on him for 2018. Today, 10:49 am

  • Bryan Mitchell activated from disabled list
    Yankees activated RHP Bryan Mitchell from the 7-day concussion disabled list.

    Advice: Mitchell suffered a concussion and a small nasal fracture when he was hit by a comebacker on August 17, but he's thrown off a mound a couple times in recent days and is ready to go. He'll work in relief for now but could eventually be a candidate to get a start. Today, 8:27 am
  • Hudson exits game with cut finger
    Daniel Hudson exited Thursday's contest against the Cardinals after cutting his finger on a grounder.

    Advice: Hudson came on in the top of the ninth inning, but he cut his finger on a Tommy Phan grounder to lead off the frame and had to be removed from the game for Brad Ziegler. The team should provide an update on his status after the game. For now, the reliever should be considered day-to-day. Yesterday, 9:55 pm
  • Brandon Crawford (oblique) out again Thurs.
    Brandon Crawford (oblique) is out of the Giants' starting lineup again on Thursday.

    Advice: Crawford could need a couple more days to rest his tight left oblique. Ehire Adrianza is starting at shortstop and batting eighth on Thursday afternoon against the Cubs. Yesterday, 10:51 am

    Brandon Crawford (oblique) said he hopes to be back in the lineup in a couple days.

    Marcus Stroman (knee) will tentatively begin his rehab assignment with Class-A Lansing on September 2.

    Advice: Stroman will then join Triple-A Buffalo for a September 7 start.

  • Crawford (oblique) not in Giants lineup Wed.
    Brandon Crawford (oblique) is not in the Giants' lineup Wednesday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Crawford left Tuesday's game with tightness in his left side and lower back, but the Giants remained hopeful it wasn't a debilitating injury.

  • Chris Capuano designated for assignment
    Yankees designated LHP Chris Capuano for assignment

    Advice: They needed to reinforce the bullpen after Capuano allowed six runs over two innings Tuesday. It's the fourth time he's been designated for assignment this season. Wednesday, 9:28 am

  • Chris Johnson (infection) hits off tee
    Chris Johnson (infection) hit balls off a tee on Monday.

    Advice: Johnson has been on the shelf since a spider bite on his left thumb on August 14 became infected. He's had to have the infection drained twice. "I ended up having an infection and they had to treat it with antibiotics," said Johnson. "The last two days I've finally been able to swing the bat." Johnson should be ready to return when rosters expand. Wednesday, 6:21 am

  • Crawford leaves with tight side/lower back
    Brandon Crawford left Tuesday's game versus the Cubs with tightness in his left side and lower back.

    Advice: The automatic fear is that Crawford might have done something to his oblique, but Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News says that the injury "wasn’t believed to be disabling." Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that he hopes Crawford can play Wednesday, but you'd have to think there's a good chance he'll have to miss at least a game or two. Wednesday, 5:40 am

    Rougned Odor went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

  • Mitchell (head) throws simulated inning
    Bryan Mitchell (concussion) made a 30-pitch simulated appearance on Tuesday without issue.

    Advice: Mitchell is already eligible to return from the 7-day concussion disabled list and should be pretty close to official activation. The 24-year-old right-hander suffered a concussion and a small nasal fracture when he was hit by a comebacker on August 17. Tuesday, 2:33 pm
  • 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
  • Yankees re-sign veteran Chris Capuano
    Yankees signed LHP Chris Capuano to a one-year contract.

    Advice: Capuano was pushed off the Yankees' 40-man roster on Saturday, but New York has already called him back with CC Sabathia (knee) landing on the disabled list. Capuano, 37, has a 6.55 ERA in 33 innings (four starts, 13 relief appearances) this season for the Yanks. He'll presumably pitch in a long relief role. Monday, 1:14 pm

  • 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. Monday, 12:36 pm
  • Stroman (knee) feels 'great' during sim game
    Marcus Stroman (knee) reported feeling "great" after throwing a 40-pitch simulated game on Monday.

    Advice: Stroman will throw another simulated game this Friday and should then be cleared to join Buffalo for a minor league rehab assignment. If he continues to progress at such a rapid pace, the young right-hander could have a legitimate shot at making some starts for the Blue Jays in September. There's also been talk of the Jays using him as a reliever. Stroman, 24, has been out all season with a torn left ACL. Monday, 10:05 am

  • Mark Teixeira (shin) remains out of lineup
    Mark Teixeira (shin) remained out of the Yankees' lineup Sunday.

  • Mitchell (concussion) to throw off mound
    Bryan Mitchell (concussion) will throw a bullpen session Sunday.

    Advice: Mitchell will then throw a live batting practice session later this week before being activated if all goes well. "You want him to get back on a mound," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "That’s the bottom line." Sunday, 7:20 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. Sunday, 7:18 am
  • Odor hits 10th homer of season in win vs DET
    Rougned Odor went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Tigers.

    Advice: Odor's solo homer in the ninth inning was the Ranger's first extra-base hit of the game. It would be their only one of that variety, but they wound up with a 5-3 win despite the lack of team power in the contest. Odor started out the season scuffling in a bad way, but a month in the minors seems to have done him wonders and he's played well since being called back up in mid-June. Overall, he's hitting .277/.331/.463 with 10 homers and 41 RBI. Saturday, 7:55 pm
  • Ike Davis transferred to 60-day disabled list
    Athletics transferred 1B Ike Davis from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Oakland needed to clear room on its 40-man roster for Sean Doolittle. The A's announced Wednesday that Davis would undergo season-ending hip surgery. The 28-year-old struggled in his first year with Oakland, hitting just .229 with three homers over 74 appearances. Mark Canha has been filling in at first base. Saturday, 2:12 pm
    60-Day DL

  • 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. Saturday, 8:39 am
  • Chris Capuano desginated for assignment
    Yankees designated LHP Chris Capuano for assignment.

    Advice: The veteran southpaw has been designated for assignment several times this month, each time passing through waivers unclaimed and remaining with the Yankees. Expect the same this time around with Capuano returning to the club once rosters expand in September. Saturday, 8:15 am

  • Ike Davis to undergo season-ending surgery

  • Mark Teixeira (shin) out again on Friday
    Mark Teixeira (shin) remains out of the Yankees' lineup Friday.

    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. Thursday, 2:42 pm
  • Jay (wrist) cleared to accelerate his rehab
    Jon Jay (wrist) has been cleared to accelerate his rehab.

    Advice: That means more baseball activities for Jay, who's been doing tee work for over a week without issue. He could be ready to rejoin the Cardinals around mid-September if he can avoid further setbacks. Jay has appeared in only 57 games this season for first-place St. Louis. Wednesday, 2:09 pm

  • Mauer notches two-run single in loss to Yanks
    Joe Mauer went 2-for-4 with a two-run single in Wednesday afternoon's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Mauer singled home Chris Herrmann and Shane Robinson in the sixth inning. He started out the season driving in runs at a very nice clip, having accumulated 30 ribbies through May. In the two-and-a-half months since, he's driven in 23. These things happen when you play for a trying offense. On the year, the former batting champ is hitting .267/.332/.378 with eight home runs, 53 RBI and 51 runs scored. Wednesday, 12:51 pm
  • Ike Davis (hip) lands on disabled list
    Athletics placed 1B Ike Davis on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 18, with a strained left hip.

    Advice: The hip has been bothering Davis for a while, as it appears he hurt it by overcompensating for his quad ailment. He underwent an MRI Tuesday and is still awaiting the results. Mark Canha has been drawing most of the starts at first base over Davis of late, anyway. Wednesday, 9:39 am
    60-Day DL
    6:40 pm x @Ari
  • Teixeira 'not really a whole lot better'
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Wednesday that Mark Teixeira (shin) is "not really a whole lot better."

    Advice: Teixeira isn't even available to pinch-hit. The Yankees are hopeful that Teixeira will be able to avoid the disabled list with the deep bone bruise in his right shin, but obviously he's going to need to show some improvement before long. Wednesday, 8:14 am
  • Crawford doubles, has RBI in win over Cards
    Brandon Crawford doubled and drove in a run in Tuesday's win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Crawford had an RBI groundout in the sixth inning, a run that turned out to be the game-winner for the Giants. He finished 1-for-3 with the double, his 28th of the year. Crawford is batting .269/.328/.495 overall. Tuesday, 10:12 pm

  • Stroman (knee) to throw sim game next Mon.
    Marcus Stroman (knee) will throw a 40-pitch simulated game next Monday.

    Advice: The Blue Jays were previously planning for Stroman to begin a minor league rehab assignment on Friday. There hasn't been a setback, but Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said it's just "easier to control the conditions" in a simulated game. He's expected to get stretched out to 55 pitches in another simulated game on August 29 before making his first minor league rehab start with Triple-A Buffalo. At that point, the Blue Jays will make a decision about his potential availability to the big club. Tuesday, 1:10 pm

    Yankees placed RHP Bryan Mitchell on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

  • Kimbrel escapes Braves' rally with 34th save
    Craig Kimbrel allowed a run in the ninth inning, but still got his 34th save in Monday's 5-3 win against the Braves.

    Advice: Kimbrel allowed a leadoff single to Nick Markakis, then walked A.J. Pierzynski to bring the tying run to the plate. He struck out Adonis Garcia, but allowed a run-scoring single to Jace Peterson, putting the potential tying run on first. Kimbrel bounced back, striking out Nick Swisher before getting Andrelton Simmons to fly out to right field to end the game. The right-hander is 34-for-36 in save chances with a 2.66 ERA and a 65/16 K/BB ratio in 47 1/3 innings. Monday, 10:19 pm
