Rajai Davis is out of the Indians' lineup Tuesday versus the Braves.
The Indians will go with Jose Ramirez, Tyler Naquin, and Lonnie Chisenhall from left to right in their outfielder versus right-hander Aaron Blair. Cleveland is looking for their 11th straight victory.
Mike Napoli is not in Tuesday's lineup versus the Braves.
He'll take a spot with the DH spot unavailable under National League rules. Carlos Santana is starting at first base and batting leadoff.
Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Tuesday that an MRI on Stephen Strasburg's back didn't reveal anything unexpected.
In other words, he's still dealing with the initial diagnosis of an upper back strain. While that's encouraging news, the timetable for his return remains up in the air. Top prospect Lucas Giolito is taking his spot in the rotation for now.
Rays purchased the contract of LHP Dana Eveland from Triple-A Durham.
He'll replace the injured Alex Colome (biceps) on the active roster. Eveland has posted a brutal 7.56 ERA and 2.04 WHIP through 21 appearances with the Rays this season.
Giants RHP prospect Phil Bickford fanned seven over five shutout innings Monday in a no-decision for High-A San Jose.
Bickford didn't have his best stuff Monday—he matched a season-high with three walks—but he did enough to keep San Jose in the game. The only hit he allowed came on a leadoff single by Bakersfield center fielder Aaron Barbosa in the third inning. Bickford has looked sharp since his promotion, allowing just two runs over his first 11 innings at High-A. The 20-year-old joined the Giants as a first-round pick in 2015.
Rays placed RHP Alex Colome on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 19, with right biceps tendinitis.
Colome hasn't appeared in a game since June 18, so the good news is that he expects to return when he's first eligible next Monday. Rays manager Kevin Cash is likely to use a committee at closer over the next few days. If they have a lead, that is. Erasmo Ramirez has struggled quite a bit recently, so Xavier Cedeno could be the pitcher to stash in this situation.
Padres transferred RHP Jon Edwards from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.
The move cleared a spot for the newly-claimed Paul Clemens on the 40-man roster. Edwards recently required a PRP injection after suffering a setback with his elbow and isn't close to rejoining the Padres.
Warwick Saupold (groin) has been pulled from his minor league rehab assignment.
Saupold exited Monday's rehab start with Triple-A Toledo after apparently aggravating the injury. It's unclear when he'll be ready to return to action. He has been sidelined since the end of May.
