Robert Murray of The Athletic reports that the Yankees plan to promote right-hander Domingo Acevedo from Double-A Trenton.

Acevedo, rated as the team's seventh best prospect, has pitched primarily as a starter at Double-A Trenton this season, compiling a 2.84 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 40/18 K/BB ratio across 50 2/3 innings. He'll be taking the place of Domingo German who was optioned to Triple-A following Friday's game.

Rockies manager Bud Black said after Friday's game that DJ LeMahieu will be placed on the disabled list with his oblique injury.

Black also indicated that it's related to the back issue that he dealt with before the break. Expect Pat Valaika to see more action at second base while LeMahieu is on the shelf.

White Sox signed RHP Mauricio Cabrera to a minor league contract.

The 24-year-old hurler was cut loose by the Braves after posting an 11.03 ERA and 2.71 WHIP across 31 innings at High-A Salem this season. He owns a triple-digit fastball, but has never been able to consistently throw it for strikes. Still, the talent is worth taking a flier on for the White Sox.

White Sox optioned OF Ryan LaMarre to Triple-A Charlotte.

The 29-year-old outfielder was claimed off of waivers from the Twins earlier this month and went 2-for-8 (.250) in his brief time with the White Sox. He'll continue to function as outfield depth at Triple-A.
Jul 21 - 8:16 AM

Tigers' manager Ron Gardenhire said Friday that Michael Fulmer (oblique) could be out a while.

Fulmer suffered the injury in his bullpen session prior to Friday's game. It doesn't sound like it's just going to be one or two starts that Fulmer misses. The timing of this couldn't be worse for the Tigers, who had seemingly been shopping the right-hander around in advance of the non-waiver trade deadline at the end of the month. At this point, with their playoff hopes already in the rearview mirror, they'll take every possible precaution not to rush Fulmer back.

Asdrubal Cabrera (hand) went 2-for-5 with a double and a pair of runs scored in his return to the Mets' lineup on Friday.

He also drove in a run. Cabrera suffered a minor hand injury in the final game before the All-Star break when he tried to bare-hand an errant pickoff throw from Mets' hurler Anthony Swarzak. He should be completely fine going forward.
Jul 21 - 7:48 AM

Nolan Arenado went 3-for-5 with two homers and four RBI in the Rockies' 11-10 win over the Diamondbacks on Friday.

Arenado contributed two-run shots off Robbie Ray in the first and fifth innings tonight. He has 12 homers and 30 RBI in his last 25 games and 25 homers and 72 RBI for the season. While his RBI pace wasn't up to his usual standards the first couple of months -- partly because the Rockies weren't putting as many men on for him as they typically do -- he now seems like the clear favorite to lead the NL in RBI for the third time in four years.
Jul 21 - 2:57 AM

Wade Davis didn't pitch Friday against the Diamondbacks because of an illness.

Adam Ottavino got the ninth in his place and notched a save despite committing an error and allowing an unearned run. Davis should be ready to resume closing in a day or two.
