Player Notes

  • Salvador Perez not in lineup Sunday
    Salvador Perez is not in the Royals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's just getting a breather. Drew Butera is catching. 37 minutes ago
  • J.J. Hardy not in Sunday's lineup
    J.J. Hardy is not in the Orioles' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It appears to be a simple day off. Ryan Flaherty is at shortstop. Today, 8:37 am
  • Adam Warren optioned to Triple-A
    Cubs optioned RHP Adam Warren to Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: Warren has disappointed for the Cubs this season with a 5.91 ERA and 27/19 K/BB ratio over 35 innings. Joe Nathan has assumed his spot in the bullpen. Today, 8:24 am
    Not Active
  • Report: Chen injury could be elbow related
    SiriusXM's Craig Mish reports that Wei-Yin Chen's injury is arm related and is "could be (his) elbow."

    Advice: The Marlins announced Saturday that Chen would not start Monday, but they didn't reveal the nature of his injury. It's unclear at this point how serious the ailment might be, but we should find out before long. Jarred Cosart is taking Chen's spot in the rotation for now, but the club is almost surely going to land a starter prior to the trade deadline. Today, 8:19 am
  • Melvin Upton not in Padres' lineup Sunday
    Melvin Upton is not in the Padres' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's interesting, obviously, with the rumors floating around regarding Upton being traded soon. For now, though, it doesn't appear anything is imminent. Alex Dickerson is in left field. Today, 8:05 am
  • Ryan Tepera recalled from Triple-A
    Blue Jays recalled RHP Ryan Tepera from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: He's taking Drew Storen's spot in the bullpen. Tepera holds a 5.79 ERA over five relief appearances with the Jays this season. Today, 7:44 am
  • A.J. Schugel recalled from Triple-A
    Pirates recalled RHP A.J. Schugel from Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: Schugel holds a 3.94 ERA and 41/13 K/BB ratio over 48 relief innings this season. He'll be used in the middle of games. Today, 7:33 am
  • Nationals 'disinclined' to trade Joe Ross
    Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Yankees "have an interest" in Joe Ross, but the Nationals are "disinclined to trade him."

    Advice: Heyman hears that the Nats could be the favorites to land Aroldis Chapman, but a source told him that there's "no chance" Washington would give up Ross for a rental. It's a perfectly reasonable stance to take, as Ross boasts a 3.56 ERA and 148/47 K/BB ratio over his first 172 major league innings and is under team control through 2021. Ross is currently working his way back from right shoulder inflammation. Today, 6:50 am
    15-Day DL
  • Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) throws off mound
    Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) threw a 35-pitch bullpen session on Saturday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's thrown from the bump since being diagnosed with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament. The Diamondbacks are hoping De La Rosa can rejoin their rotation at some point in the second half, but he's still got some work to do. Today, 6:16 am
    15-Day DL
  • Zack Greinke (oblique) throws bullpen session
    Zack Greinke (oblique) threw a 45-pitch bullpen session Saturday.

    Advice: Greinke came out of the session with no issues. Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said that the club is still determining what the next step will be for Greinke, although it's possible he's ready to make a rehab start. A return in early August is looking likely if he can avoid a setback. Today, 6:14 am
    15-Day DL
  • Chris Colabello sent to Triple-A Buffalo
    Blue Jays reinstated 1B Chris Colabello from the restricted list; designated him off the 25-man roster.

    Advice: He's done with his PED suspension but won't be on the active roster. Colabello remains on the 40-man roster, but he'll just now have to work his way back up through the minors. Colabello was struggling before his suspension and hitting only .189/.262/.324 on his rehab assignment, so it's not a surprise that the Jays want him to continue to work on things in the minors. Today, 6:04 am
    Not Active
  • Joe Kelly recalled from Triple-A
    Red Sox recalled RHP Joe Kelly from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Kelly tossed five scoreless innings with a 9/1 K/BB ratio since being moved to Pawtucket's bullpen. A relief role is probably where he's belonged all along, and he could be a weapon out of the 'pen. Today, 5:20 am
  • Anderson gives up three in six frames for win
    Tyler Anderson turned in a quality start at Coors Field, yielding three runs in six innings to help the Rockies beat the Braves 8-4 on Saturday.

    Advice: The rookie continues to impress. He struck out six batters, walked one and gave up eight base hits, none of which left the yard. It was his seventh start since being called up, and five of them have come at Coors Field. He is 3-3 with a 3.56 ERA. He has a 41/10 K/BB ratio in 48 innings. Perhaps most impressively, he has given up only four home runs, and two of those came on the road. Yesterday, 10:11 pm
  • Sano has three hits, homer in slugfest win
    Miguel Sano went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI as the Twins outlasted the Red Sox 11-9 on Saturday.

    Advice: Sano had three of the team's 19 hits, including his solo home run in the eighth inning. The dinger was his 15th of the season and his fourth in the month of July. It has been a good month all around for the 23-year-old, who is hitting .251/.349/.474 in his first full season in the bigs. Yesterday, 10:00 pm
  • Bogaerts' four-hit game not enough for Sox
    Xander Bogaerts finished 4-for-6 with a run scored in a loss to the Twins on Saturday.

    Advice: The Red Sox pounded out 15 hits on the night, led by Bogaerts' four, but the Twins won the slugfest. That wasn't by fault of the 23-year-old Bogaerts, who is 11-for-22 in his last five games. The ultra-talented young shortstop is hitting .329/.385/.474 with 61 RBI and 72 runs scored, sixth-most in the American League, on the season. Yesterday, 9:47 pm
  • Garcia goes 2-for-4 with a run and RBI
    Adonis Garcia stroked two hits in four chances, adding an RBI and a run scored on Saturday.

    Advice: He singled and scored in the first inning. He singled again in the third inning to drive in Freddie Freeman. The 31-year-old is playing most every day for the Braves but has not put up the kind of numbers to be a viable fantasy option. He is batting .257 with 7 home runs in 299 plate appearances. Yesterday, 9:43 pm
  • Smyly gives up one run in six innings on Sat.
    Drew Smyly held the Athletics to only one run in six innings but had to settle for a no-decision after the Rays' bullpen blew the save on Saturday.

    Advice: He gave up six hits and one walk and fanned only one batter in the ballgame. The lack of strikeouts is unusual for Smyly, who has whiffed more than a batter per inning this year. The win would really have been nice for his owners, who have suffered through his 2-11 record this year. He will take his 5.42 ERA into his next start at home against the Yankees. Yesterday, 9:29 pm
  • Mazara stuffs stat sheet in win over Royals
    Nomar Mazara had a night Saturday, going 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored against the Royals.

    Advice: Mazara bombed a two-run shot off Royals starter Yordano Ventura in the fourth inning, his 12th home run of the season. He followed that with an RBI double an inning later. The 21-year-old may have been showing off for a prospective suitor -- or performing in hopes the Rangers decide he's untouchable -- as Mazara's name has reportedly come up in talks with the White Sox for Chris Sale. Mazara is hitting .287/.341/.429 this year and has a bright future in the majors, wherever he is. Yesterday, 9:27 pm
  • Colome gives up two home runs to blow save
    Alex Colome entered the ninth inning with a two-run lead but gave up a game-tying two-run bomb to Jake Smolinski and a walk-off blast to Ryon Healy to blow the save and take a loss on Saturday.

    Advice: It was a very rare poor game for Colome, who snapped his streak of 21 consecutive saves. This was his first blown save of the season. The bad game lifted his ERA from 1.59 to 2.34 on the season. His job security at closer should still be strong. Yesterday, 9:24 pm
  • Arcia goes 2-for-3 with an RBI on Saturday
    Oswaldo Arcia went 2-for-3 with an RBI but the Rays lost on Saturday.

    Advice: He stroked an RBI single in the second inning and added a double later in the game. The part-time player is now batting .230 with six home runs and 19 RBI in 152 at-bats. Yesterday, 9:04 pm
