Evan Longoria was beaned in the upper left triceps in his final plate appearance during his minor league rehab assignment on Sunday.

Longoria is fine, he did not sustain any further injury from the beaning, but the veteran third baseman was not happy about it. As long as he's feeling alright on Monday, it sounds as though Longoria will return to the Giants on Tuesday.

Dan Altavilla (elbow) has been playing catch at a distance of 90 feet as he ramps up his throwing program.

Altavilla has been sidelined since June 7 with a sprained UCL in his right elbow. He's hopeful that he'll be able to rejoin the Mariners' bullpen for the stretch run. The right-hander registered a 2.61 ERA and 23/15 K/BB ratio over 20 2/3 innings before sustaining the injury.

According to Jim Bowden of MLB Network Radio, the Astros are "all-in" on acquiring Orioles' left-hander Zach Britton.

Bowden also noted that last year's negated trade that fell through will not have any impact on discussions this time around. The Astros have seemingly stabilized the back end of their bullpen with Hector Rondon performing admirably in the closer's role, but they could definitely use another elite left-handed arm as a compliment.

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Athletics are interested in acquiring Tigers' right-hander Mike Fiers.

The 33-year-old right-hander is a free agent at season's end and highly likely to be dealt before the trade deadline at the end of the month. He has also been pitching very well for the Tigers, compiling a 2.47 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 50/14 K/BB ratio over 62 innings in his last 10 starts. That includes 6 1/3 shutout innings against the Red Sox in a victory on Saturday. The A's have tremendous prospect depth, even after acquiring Jeurys Familia this week, so there could be a match here, though Morosi notes that serious talks have not begun yet.

Phillies optioned RHP Mark Leiter to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Leiter has traveled back and forth between the big leagues and Triple-A several times already this season. The 27-year-old hurler gave up three runs over two innings of work on Sunday, running his ERA to 5.74 in 15 2/3 innings with the Phillies this season. A corresponding roster move will be announced on Monday.

Phillies optioned OF Aaron Altherr to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

The 27-year-old outfielder has been a major disappointment this season, slashing a ghastly .171/.290/.305 with six homers and 33 RBI in his 248 plate appearances. He'll try to figure things out playing everyday at Triple-A and should get another shot in Philadelphia before the end of the season. He can be cut loose in any redraft leagues where he still might be owned.

Masahiro Tanaka will make his next start on Tuesday against the Rays in Tampa Bay.

Tanaka was scheduled to start on Sunday night against the Mets, though that game was rained out. The Yankees will keep Luis Severino on his regular turn on Monday, with Tanaka slotting in on Tuesday and CC Sabathia getting pushed back until Friday.

Due to Sunday's rainout against the Mets, the Yankees have pushed CC Sabathia's next start back until Friday.

The 38-year-old southpaw had been scheduled to go on Tuesday, but will get a couple of extra days of rest now to keep everyone else on schedule. Masahiro Tanaka, the Yankees' scheduled starter on Sunday, will work on Tuesday in Sabathia's spot.
