  • Red Sox recall Kaleb Ort from AAA Worcester
    Red Sox recalled RHP Kaleb Ort from Triple-A Worcester.

    Advice: Ort will join Boston's bullpen on Tuesday night as a replacement for Tanner Houck, who has landed on the injured list with lower back inflammation. Ort has allowed 13 earned runs in 12 1/3 innings this season at the major league level and figures to pitch in a low-leverage role. 1 minute ago

  • Red Sox place Tanner Houck (back) on 15-day IL
    Red Sox placed RHP Tanner Houck on the 15-day injured list, retroactive to August 6, with lower back inflammation.

    Advice: Another rough turn of events for Boston. Houck, 26, leaves behind a sharp 3.15 ERA and 56/22 K/BB ratio over 60 innings (four starts, 28 relief appearances) on the season. He already had two saves here in August. Kaleb Ort will join the active 26-man major league roster ahead of Tuesday night's game against the visiting Braves. 3 minutes ago

  • James Karinchak to be placed on restricted list
    James Karnichak will not travel with the Guardians to Toronto this weekend.

    Advice: Karinchak is unvaccinated from COVID-19 and is not allowed to cross the border. He's the only Guardians player that will be absent on the trip. Look for the 26-year-old reliever to be placed on the restricted list Friday. 11 minutes ago
  • Giants outright Dixon Machado to AAA Sacramento
    Giants sent INF Dixon Machado outright to Triple-A Sacramento.

    Advice: Machado was designated for assignment a week after being acquired from the Cubs, but he will remain part of the Giants organization for now. The 30-year-old infielder is a career .226/.285/.292 hitter at the MLB level. 14 minutes ago

  • Cody Poteet to require Tommy John surgery
    Cody Poteet is headed for Tommy John surgery.

    Advice: Poteet has been on the IL since July 22 due to right elbow inflammation, and further testing obviously revealed something far more serious. He could very well be sidelined until the beginning of the 2024 season. 18 minutes ago

  • Corbin to be skipped on next turn in Nats rotation
    Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Patrick Corbin will be skipped on his next turn in the rotation.

    Advice: A scheduled team off day on Thursday will allow Washington to execute this plan without putting any further strain on the other members of the starting rotation. Corbin suffered his 16th loss of the season on Saturday against the Phillies as he again failed to work out of the first inning. He has a 7.02 ERA on the year and is owed a $35.4 million salary in 2023. What a nightmare for the rebuilding Nats. 37 minutes ago
  • Kyle Hendricks still in shutdown mode after MRI
    Kyle Hendricks (shoulder) will remain in shutdown mode for at least another week.

    Advice: Hendricks was placed on the injured list back in early July because of a right shoulder strain, and a followup MRI taken Monday showed lingering inflammation in the joint. Given where we are on the baseball calendar, it's quite possible that the 32-year-old will not be able to get back on a major league mound before the end of the 2022 regular season. He's owed a $14 million salary from the Cubs in 2023. 51 minutes ago

  • Mariners sign Anthony Banda to minor league deal
    Mariners signed LHP Anthony Banda to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Banda has already joined up with the team's Triple-A affiliate in Tacoma and might get a look in Seattle at some point down the stretch. The 28-year-old was pushed off the Blue Jays' 40-man roster last week. Today, 2:13 pm
  • Reds recall Alejo López from AAA Louisville
    Reds recalled INF/OF Alejo López from Triple-A Louisville.

    Advice: He'll help fill a gap in Cincinnati with Mike Moustakas (calf) requiring another IL stint. López, 26, is just a .250/.315/.274 career hitter with zero home runs and one RBI in 44 career games at the major league level. Today, 2:09 pm
