Player Notes

  • Uehara (pectoral) throws 53 pitches on Friday
    Koji Uehara (pectoral) threw 53 pitches off a mound on Friday.

    Advice: ESPN's Scott Lauber noted that Uehara was throwing with "good intensity." Uehara is scheduled to throw again Monday and could face live hitters for the first time since straining his pectoral muscle shortly after the All-Star break. He'll likely share setup duties with Brad Ziegler upon his return. Today, 3:31 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Dylan Bundy hit hard in loss to Yankees
    Dylan Bundy was hit hard in Saturday's loss to the Yankees, surrendering five runs on seven hits in only four innings.

    Advice: On the plus side, he did manage to rack up six strikeouts on the afternoon while walking three. The Yankees got to him early and often in this one, scratching out a run in the first, tacking on three more in the third, and adding a solo homer from Gary Sanchez to complete the damage in the fourth. Now 7-5 on the season, he'll carry a 3.71 ERA and 1.34 WHIP into a rematch against these Yankees on Friday in Baltimore. Today, 1:39 pm
  • Edwin Encarnacion goes deep in win over Twins
    Edwin Encarnacion connected on his 36th home run of the season in Saturday's come-from-behind 8-7 victory over the Twins.

    Advice: He tagged Twins starter Ervin Santana for the two-run blast in the sixth inning, pulling the Jays to within two runs at 5-3. He then added an RBI single in the seventh to cut the deficit to one at 7-6. Encarnacion finished the afternoon 2-for-3 with a pair of runs scored and three RBI. He's now hitting .271/.361/.557 with 36 homers and 105 RBI on the season. Today, 1:17 pm
  • Marcus Stroman struggles against Twins
    Marcus Stroman struggled in a no-decision against the Twins on Saturday, allowing five runs on nine hits over his six frames.

    Advice: The right-hander walked one and struck out five on the afternoon. Most of the damage occurred during a four-run uprising in the fourth inning, where Eduardo Escobar and Brian Dozier each delivered RBI doubles. Stroman continues to be marred by inconsistency and will carry a disappointing 4.58 ERA and 1.29 WHIP into next Saturday's start against the Rays in Tampa Bay. Today, 1:16 pm
  • Kyle Seager (foot) returns to Mariners lineup
    Kyle Seager has returned to the Mariners starting lineup for Saturday's game against the White Sox.

    Advice: Seager missed three straight games after fouling a ball off of his foot on Tuesday, but is ready to go now. The 28-year-old is having a terrific season, slashing .286/.364/.515 with 24 homers and 83 RBI. Today, 12:47 pm
  • Danny Valencia not in A's lineup on Saturday
    Danny Valencia is not in the Athletics starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Cardinals.

    Advice: It appears to be just a day of rest for Valencia. Ryan Healy is getting the start at the hot corner while Yonder Alonso mans first base for the A's against Alex Reyes and the Cardinals. Today, 12:35 pm
  • Mariners recall Pat Venditte from Triple-A
    Mariners recalled SWP Pat Venditte from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: The switch-pitching reliever has been terrific since coming over in a trade from the Blue Jays, posting a 1.08 ERA and 11/3 K/BB ratio over 8 1/3 innings at Triple-A. He'll add much-needed depth to a depleted M's bullpen. Today, 12:29 pm
  • Mariners option Mike Freeman back to Triple-A
    Mariners optioned INF/OF Mike Freeman to Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Freeman was only with the club for a couple of games to serve as additional bench depth while Kyle Seager dealt with a bruised foot. He should return to that role next week once rosters expand. Today, 12:29 pm

  • Giants recall Albert Suarez to start Saturday
    Giants recalled RHP Albert Suarez from Triple-A Sacramento.

    Advice: The 26-year-old hurler has appeared in 16 games for the Giants this season (six starts), compiling a 4.20 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 40/17 K/BB ratio. He could be worth a look as a streaming option against the Braves on Saturday. Today, 12:11 pm
  • Phillies option Jorge Alfaro to Double-A
    Phillies optioned C Jorge Alfaro to Double-A Reading.

    Advice: As expected, it was a short stay for the young backstop, as he was replaced by A.J. Ellis on Saturday. Alfaro should get another look with the Phillies when rosters expand next week. Today, 11:40 am

    Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Saturday that Chris Tillman (shoulder) is unlikely to require a minor league rehab start before rejoining the club's rotation.

    Advice: Tillman was placed on the disabled list earlier in the week due to shoulder inflammation, but he's hoping to return as soon as he's eligible. The O's ace has won 15 games this season while compiling a 3.76 ERA and 126/58 K/BB ratio across 153 innings this season. Ubaldo Jimenez is holding down his spot in the rotation in the meantime. Today, 8:50 am
    15-Day DL
  • Adam Jones not in Orioles lineup on Saturday
    Adam Jones (hamstring) is not in the Orioles starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Jones was forced to exit Friday's game due to a strained left hamstring. He is listed as available on Saturday and isn't expected to require a trip to the disabled list. Julio Borbon is starting in his place in center field and batting ninth for the O's Today, 8:30 am
  • Joe Ross (shoulder) begins rehab on Sunday
    Joe Ross (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday.

    Advice: He's likely to need at least a couple of starts, but could be ready to rejoin the Nationals rotation in early September. Prior to landing on the shelf, Ross posted a 3.49 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 79/26 K/BB ratio over 95 1/3 innings. Today, 8:16 am
    15-Day DL
  • Devon Travis (finger) returns to Jays lineup
    Devon Travis (finger) has returned to the Blue Jays starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: The second baseman hasn't played since last weekend due to an issue with the third knuckle on his right hand. He's batting eighth against Ervin Santana and the Twins on Saturday. Today, 8:02 am
  • Diamondbacks transfer Peralta to 60-day DL
    Diamondbacks transferred OF David Peralta to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Peralta underwent season-ending wrist surgery two weeks ago, this was merely done as a procedural move to open up a spot on the 40-man roster. Peralta is expected to be fully healthy and ready for spring training next season. Today, 6:21 am
    60-Day DL
  • Mike Montgomery strikes out five Dodgers
    Mike Montgomery gave up three runs in five innings Friday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Montgomery kept the Cubs in the game despite allowing six hits, walking four and hitting a batter. It's unclear whether he'll get another start next week. We'd rather see Montgomery in the bullpen than in the rotation. Yesterday, 11:06 pm
  • Colome gives up back-to-back HRs vs. Astros
    Alex Colome gave up back-to-back homers to blow a save and take the loss Friday against the Astros.

    Advice: It was a night to forget for Colome. The Rays pulled ahead in the top of the ninth inning when Mikie Mahtook slugged a solo homer off Ken Giles, but Colome failed to retire a batter in the bottom of the frame. He gave up a leadoff homer to Carlos Correa to tie things up before Evan Gattis followed that up with a long walk-off homer. This was just Colome’s second blown save in 30 chances this season. He hadn’t allowed a run since July 23, so his job is secure. Yesterday, 10:08 pm
  • Correa hits game-tying homer vs. Rays
    Carlos Correa connected for a game-tying solo homer Friday against the Rays.

    Advice: The Rays grabbed the lead with a solo homer from Mikie Mahtook in the top of the ninth inning before Correa led off the bottom of the frame with a home run of his own. Evan Gattis quickly followed with a walk-off homer to give the Astros the win in dramatic fashion. Correa is now up to 19 homers and 88 RBI through 124 games this season. Yesterday, 10:07 pm
  • Ozuna drives in two in win over Padres
    Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-5 with two RBI in Friday’s victory over the Padres.

    Advice: Ozuna got the Marlins on the board in the first inning with an RBI double and later added an RBI single in the seventh inning, which jumpstarted the team’s comeback effort. This was just Ozuna’s second multi-hit game in his last 25 games. It has been a rough month for the 25-year-old, but he has the ability to finish strong. Yesterday, 9:19 pm
  • Leake scratched from start due to shingles
    Mike Leake was scratched from his scheduled start against the Athletics on Saturday due to shingles.

    Advice: It's unclear at the moment how much time the right-hander may miss. Rookie right-hander Alex Reyes will start in his place on Saturday and would likely occupy his rotation spot for as long as Leake is sidelined. Yesterday, 9:18 pm
