CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Athletics are calling up prospect outfielder Billy Burns.

No word yet on the corresponding roster move, but Coco Crisp is dealing with a neck injury. Known for his plus-speed, the 24-year-old Burns is batting .250/.333/.330 with 51 steals over 91 games this season in Triple-A.
Jul 28 - 4:50 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury is not in Monday's lineup against the Rangers.

We haven't heard anything about an injury, so he's likely just getting a breather. Brett Gardner will start in center field Monday while the newly-recalled Zoilo Almonte will start in left.
Jul 28 - 4:47 PM

Mark Teixeira (lat) is out of the Yankees' starting lineup again Monday against the Rangers.

Teixeira hasn't played since last Saturday due to a lower left lat strain, but he came through an extensive workout Sunday with no issues. The Yankees remain hopeful that he'll be able to avoid a DL stint and return soon.
Jul 28 - 4:45 PM

Carlos Gonzalez (ankle) is back in Monday's lineup against the Cubs.

CarGo rolled his ankle prior to Saturday's game and missed two straight starts, but he's ready to give it a go. He'll bat third against Tsuyoshi Wada.
Jul 28 - 4:40 PM

Ryan Hanigan (oblique) could begin a minor league rehab assignment Wednesday with High-A Charlotte.

The plan calls for him to play two games there before hopefully coming off the DL on Friday. Hanigan has been sidelined for two and a half weeks with an oblique strain.
Jul 28 - 4:26 PM

Yankees recalled OF Zoilo Almonte from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Almonte, 25, is 4-for-25 (.160) with a homer over 10 games with the Yankees this season. He'll serve as an extra outfielder.
Jul 28 - 4:23 PM

Yankees designated LHP Jeff Francis for assignment.

The Yankees have called up Zoilo Almonte to take his spot on the active roster. Francis was acquired from the A's earlier this month and allowed one run on two hits in 1 2/3 innings over two appearances.
Jul 28 - 4:21 PM

Aaron Hill (hand) is out of Monday's lineup against the Reds.

Hill left Saturday's game after he was hit on the right hand with a pitch and will now miss his second straight start. He is available off the bench Monday, so it sounds like he'll be ready to go soon.
