Rangers released LHP Wandy Rodriguez.

He cleared waivers after being designated for assignment and is now free to sign elsewhere. Rodriguez faded after a hot start with Texas, ultimately holding a 4.90 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 86 1/3 innings. Still, he shouldn't have a problem catching on with a club looking for some depth.
Aug 4 - 8:10 PM

Josh Reddick (back) was a late scratch from the Athletics' lineup Tuesday.

Reddick had been slated to return to action after sitting out Monday with lower back soreness, but apparently he's not quite ready yet. Mark Canha replaced him in right field.
Aug 4 - 8:08 PM

David Freese (finger) said Tuesday that he could return to the Angels' lineup by next week.

He'll have missed three weeks at that point with a non-displaced fracture in his right index finger. Conor Gillaspie has filled in nicely for Freese at third base, batting .286/.310/.536 with a homer and six RBI over seven contests.
Aug 4 - 8:03 PM

Rob Scahill (forearm) will begin a rehab assignment with the Pirates' Gulf Coast League affiliate on Thursday.

He'll then throw 50 pitches and/or three innings at Double-A Altoona in the middle of next week. It's possible Scahill, who has been out since late June with right forearm tightness, will be ready for activation after that.
Aug 4 - 7:57 PM

Jesse Hahn (forearm) is still feeling stiffness when doing strengthening exercises.

Obviously, the A's aren't going to allow him to resume a throwing program until that stiffness completely subsides. There's a good chance the club winds up shutting Hahn down for the season.
Aug 4 - 7:31 PM

A.J. Griffin (shoulder) has yet to resume a throwing program.

Griffin has reported improvement with his shoulder, but he remains shut down. The right-hander hasn't appeared in a game since mid-June and looks like a long shot to make it back to the majors this season.
Aug 4 - 7:27 PM

Justin Upton (thumb) is absent from the Padres' lineup Tuesday.

Upton exited Monday's game with a bruised right thumb. The ailment doesn't seem to be serious, but he could require a few days of rest. Will Venable is in left field Tuesday, with Melvin Upton handling center.
Aug 4 - 6:57 PM

Drew Smyly (shoulder) will make at least two more rehab starts.

He'll make his third on Thursday after being roughed up for nine runs across 5 2/3 innings in his first two outings. Smyly's shoulder apparently feels fine, which is the most important thing, but the Rays would certainly like to see better results before bringing him back. He's been out since early May with a partial labrum tear.
