  • Louis Coleman recalled from Triple-A
    Royals recalled RHP Louis Coleman from Triple-A Omaha.

    Advice: Coleman has struggled in his time in the majors this season, posting a 7.48 ERA over 20 appearances. He'll be used in a middle relief role.

  • Royals designate Bruce Chen for assignment
    Royals designated LHP Bruce Chen for assignment.

    Advice: Chen gets the boot after being pummeled for six runs in an extra-innings loss to the Twins on Thursday. The left-hander had been used sparingly since returning from the DL, so the move isn't terribly surprising. He'll pass through waivers easily given his $3.25 million salary.

  • Dane De La Rosa outrighted to Triple-A
    Angels sent RHP Dane De La Rosa outright to Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: He's now off the 40-man roster. The team's main internal candidates to start on Saturday are already on the 40-man roster, so this move will undoubtedly lead to trade speculation.

  • Venters to undergo third Tommy John surgery
    Jonny Venters (elbow) has decided to undergo a third Tommy John surgery.

    Advice: Venters has spent all season rehabbing from the second Tommy John surgery of his career and found out from an MRI on Thursday that his UCL snapped again. The odds are long that he'll ever make it back and be effective, and if he does we're unlikely to see him before 2016. Venters is arbitration-eligible for a fine time this winter.

  • Rich Hill designated for assignment
    Yankees designated LHP Rich Hill for assignment.

    Advice: He was made expendable after the Yankees acquired Josh Outman. Hill didn't allow any runs over six appearances for the Yanks. He should catch on elsewhere quickly.

  • Evan Reed called up from Triple-A
    Tigers purchased the contract of RHP Evan Reed from Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: Reed was removed from the 40-man roster earlier this season but is now getting another shot after posting a 4.24 ERA and 26/5 K/BB ratio over 23 1/3 frames for Toledo. The righty recently had sexual assault charges against him dismissed.

  • Jose Ortega designated for assignment
    Tigers designated RHP Jose Ortega for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears room on the 40-man roster for Evan Reed. Ortega has a big arm, but his velocity has been down this season and his control has always been an issue. It's possible someone will take a chance on the 25-year-old.

  • Thatcher's (ankle) 'pen session goes poorly
    Joe Thatcher (ankle) recently tried to throw off a mound but said "it didn't go well."

    Advice: Despite the setback, the veteran left-hander is still hoping to return in mid-September. He's been out since early August with a sprained left ankle. "My arm is in shape," he said, "so as soon as my ankle is ready, I'll be ready to go. There's no build-up process."

  • Yusmeiro Petit expected to get another start
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy indicated after Thursday's game that Yusmeiro Petit would receive another start.

    Advice: Bochy had promised Petit just the one start as the club skipped the struggling Tim Lincecum. However, after Petit struck out nine over six frames of one-run ball, it sounds like he'll remain in the rotation and Lincecum in the bullpen for the time being. "These are the things we'll talk about," Bochy said. "But it's hard to change things after an effort like that. And it gives Timmy a chance to continue to work on some things."

  • Allen gets a four-out save as Tribe tops CHW
    Cody Allen recorded four outs, all on strikeouts, en route to his 18th save of the season as the Indians defeated the White Sox 3-2 on Thursday.

    Advice: Bryan Shaw got two quick outs in the eighth, but a single followed by an error by Mike Aviles made it necessary for Allen to make an eighth-inning appearance. Allen allowed an inherited runner to score on Adam Dunn's single, but struck out Avisail Garcia to end the inning. He then fanned the side in the ninth. The 25-year-old right-hander is 18-for-19 in save chances with a 1.71 ERA, a 1.04 WHIP, and a 77/22 K/BB ratio.

  • Yusmeiro Petit sets MLB record in victory
    Yusmeiro Petit set a major league record with 46 straight batters retired on his way to allowing one run over six innings Thursday in a win over the Rockies.

    Advice: Petit retired the first eight batters he faced today to overtake Mark Buehrle's major league record of 45 consecutive batters retired. He then immediately gave up a double to opposing starter Jordan Lyles and a soft RBI single to Charlie Blackmon, but he buckled down after that. He ended up allowing four hits, walking none and striking out nine in his first start since replacing Tim Lincecum in the rotation. He'll get the Rockies again next week, and while that will be at Coors, he still looks like a decent play in mixed leagues.

  • Michael Mariot placed on 60-day DL
    Royals recalled RHP Michael Mariot from Triple-A Omaha; placed him on the 60-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.

    Advice: The move cleared space on the 40-man roster for Jayson Nix. Mariot will miss the remainder of the season.

  • Braves' Venters has re-tear of UCL in elbow
    Jonny Venters has been diagnosed with a re-tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow following an MRI.

    Advice: Awful news for Venters, who has spent all season rehabbing from the second Tommy John surgery of his career. He'll now need a third operation if he hopes to continue his career.

  • Tigers to call up RHP Evan Reed
    The Tigers will call up right-hander Evan Reed from Triple-A Toledo prior to Friday's game.

    Advice: The Tigers optioned Kyle Lobstein back to Triple-A after Thursday's game. Reed posted a 4.91 ERA in 25 2/3 innings with the Tigers earlier this season.

  • Soria (oblique) ready to stretch out throwing
    Joakim Soria (oblique) will stretch out his flat-ground throwing program on Friday.

    Advice: And if that goes well, he should soon be cleared for mound work. Soria had been aiming to return from the 15-day disabled list when first eligible on August 25, but it's going to be more like early-to-mid September.

  • Reds option Daniel Corcino to AAA Louisville
    Reds optioned RHP Daniel Corcino to Triple-A Louisville.

    Advice: Corcino struck out two batters in a scoreless inning of relief Tuesday. It was his only appearance in a six-day stint with the major league club. The right-hander will likely be back when rosters expand in September.

  • Joe Kelly gives up two runs to Blue Jays
    Joe Kelly yielded two runs and three hits in six-plus innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Kelly was on a pitch count tonight after leaving his last start with a right shoulder problem. That makes it hard to see why he was sent back out to begin the seventh, only to get pulled after giving up a double. The Blue Jays went on to score four times in the inning to take a 5-2 lead. Kelly is still winless in five starts for the Red Sox, though he's pitched well in four of them.

  • Venters shut down with lingering elbow pain
    Jonny Venters has been shut down again due to lingering discomfort in his surgically-repaired elbow.

    Advice: He'll visit Dr. James Andrews later this week. Venters has struggled to make a full recovery from his second Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and can probably be ruled out for the remainder of the 2014 season.

  • Yusmeiro Petit moves into Giants' rotation
    Yusmeiro Petit will start on Thursday versus the Rockies in place of Tim Lincecum.

    Advice: He's only guaranteed the one start for now, but the switch will become permanent if Petit pitches well. The right-hander has quietly retired 38 straight batters in relief and holds a 3.59 ERA and 87/17 K/BB ratio over 80 1/3 frames this season. However, he's posted a 6.32 ERA over six spot starts, so he's far from a sure thing.

  • Joe Thatcher (ankle) does some running
    Joe Thatcher (ankle) has begun running and hopes to throw a bullpen session on Saturday.

    Advice: It's good news, though he's still at least a couple weeks away from a return. Thatcher has been sidelined since early August with a sprained left ankle.

  • Joe Kelly (shoulder) to make next start
    Red Sox manager John Farrell said that Joe Kelly (shoulder) reported "no ill effects" when he arrived at Fenway Park on Saturday.

    Advice: Kelly was removed from Friday's start as a precaution due to a shoulder injury, but tests showed no damage and he's expected to be fine. "He's on target to start in five days," Farrell said.

  • Allen bombs in ninth, costing Indians game
    Cody Allen allowed four runs, though none of them were earned, in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Allen can thank baseball's scoring system for the fact that he didn't technically allow a run. After Robbie Perez's throwing error allowed a run to score, Jon Singleton smacked a three-run shot to secure the Astros victory. The foibles of the Cleveland bullpen dashed Carlos Carrasco's hopes of picking up a win following six innings of one-run ball. Despite the struggles tonight, Allen has only blown one save on the year (the runs tonight came when the game was tied at 1-1) and maintains a 1.84 ERA to go with sixteen saves.

  • Kelly removed after 'sensation' in shoulder
    Joe Kelly was removed from Friday's start after feeling a sensation in his right shoulder.

    Advice: Kelly left after five scoreless innings, and the Red Sox said the move was precautionary in nature. Testing showed no injury, and Kelly said he expects to make his next start.

  • Joe Kelly removed as a precaution on Friday
    Joe Kelly was removed from Friday's start against the Mariners for precautionary reasons.

    Advice: Kelly held the Mariners scoreless over five innings, leaving after 88 pitches. The Red Sox didn't divulge much more on his situation, so more should be known after the game.

  • Daniel Corcino recalled from Double-A
    Reds recalled RHP Daniel Corcino from Double-A Pensacola.

    Advice: Corcino has put up a 4.13 ERA and 113/70 K/BB ratio over 143 2/3 innings at Pensacola this season. While he's worked as a starter in the minors, the Reds will use him in relief. The 23-year-old will be make his major league debut when he gets into a game.

  • Joakim Soria (oblique) nearing return
    Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said in an interview on SiriusXM Friday that Joakim Soria (oblique) is "very close" to returning.

    Advice: Soria has apparently made rapid progress in his recovery from a left oblique strain, as it's normally an injury that takes much longer than a minimum stay on the disabled list. "He can be activated on Monday," Dombrowski said. "I'm not sure he'll be activated right then, but he's very close."

  • Reed has sexual assault charges dismissed
    The sexual assault charges against Evan Reed have been dismissed.

    Advice: Reed had been charged with two counts of third-degree sexual assault as a result of an incident that occurred on March 30 in a Detroit hotel room. Allegedly, the pitcher met a 45-year-old woman at a bar, took her back to his room, and assaulted her. Prosecutors, however, failed to convince the judge there was probable cause that a crime was committed -- mostly because of a lack of evidence. Reed could have faced up to 15 years behind bars if the case had gone to trial.

  • Petit to 'start' suspended game against Cubs
    Yusmeiro Petit will "start" when the Giants resume their suspended game against the Cubs on Thursday.

    Advice: It's not quite a start, since the game will pick up in the bottom of the fifth inning, but Petit will be on the mound when the game resumes. He last pitched 10 days ago and has been a reliever since a spot start on July 22, so the Giants will likely only ask for two or three innings from the 29-year-old. Petit owns a 3.89 ERA through 74 innings of work this year.
    Wednesday, 8:47 pm
  • Allen shuts down Twins to earn 16th save
    Cody Allen worked a scoreless ninth inning against the Twins on Tuesday to earn his 16th save.

    Advice: Allen allowed a one-out single to Eduardo Escobar to bring the tying run to the plate, but he got Chris Parmelee and Danny Santana to end the threat. Allen has now converted 16 of 17 save chances, owning a 1.84 ERA and 0.99 WHIP on the year. A dominant reliever on a competitive team, Allen will continue to be one of the better closer options down the stretch.

  • Motte (back) plays catch for first time Tues.
    Jason Motte (back) played catch on Tuesday.

    Advice: Motte made about 15 throws from 90 feet in his first throwing workout since landing on the disabled list in early August with a lower back sprain. He is tracking toward an early-September return to the St. Louis bullpen.
