Michael Cuddyer has received the green light to begin a strengthening program after an MRI showed that his left shoulder was healing properly.

There was a possibility that Cuddyer would be shut down for the season if the MRI didn't show healing, but he's now aiming for a return in mid-August. "It's what I thought we were going to hear, that it's healing," Cuddyer said. "We don't have an exact timeline just because it's all symptomatic right now, but hopefully three weeks from now or so, I can go out on a rehab [assignment]." The 35-year-old is due to become a free agent this offseason, but the Rockies have expressed interest in re-signing him.

Chris Young left Monday's game against the Mariners in the eighth inning due to a left calf cramp.

Young suffered the injury running to first base in the top of the eighth inning. The hope is that it's not a big deal, but the Mets should know more Tuesday.

Mariners optioned 1B Justin Smoak to Triple-A Tacoma.

The move clears a spot for Tuesday's starter Erasmo Ramirez. Smoak went 4-for-20 (.200) with one double and one RBI during his most recent stint with the big club.

Cody Ross (calf) had a pinch-hit single Monday against the Tigers.

Ross left Saturday's game due to tightness in his left calf, but apparently he's feeling improvement. He should be able to return to the lineup soon.
Jul 22 - 4:24 AM

Danny Farquhar (elbow) allowed an unearned run in one inning of work in his return to action Monday against the Mets.

Farquhar was unavailable Sunday due to tenderness in his pitching elbow, but it's not a major concern. The 27-year-old has an excellent 2.68 ERA and 50/14 K/BB ratio over 43 2/3 innings this season.
Jul 22 - 4:24 AM

Charlie Blackmon (ankle) went 1-for-5 with a double in his return to action Monday against the Nationals.

Blackmon rolled his right ankle on Saturday, but X-rays came back negative. He sat out Sunday's game, but should be good to go moving forward.
Jul 22 - 4:24 AM

Erick Aybar (groin) grounded out in a pinch-hit appearance Monday against the Orioles.

Aybar has missed three straight starts with a sore right groin, but it's a good sign that he was able to pinch-hit. Look for him to return to the starting lineup soon.
Jul 22 - 4:24 AM

Adam Jones went 2-for-4 with a pair of two-run homers in Monday's 4-2 win against the Angels.

Jones' first inning shot off Matt Shoemaker plated Nick Markakis and put the Orioles on top 2-0. Five frames later, deja vu, only this time Jones was even more emphatic, pulverizing the ball 443 feet over the left center wall to give Baltimore a 4-2 lead it wouldn't relinquish. Jones has two homers and nine RBI over his last three games. His slash line is up to a healthy .300/.325/.500, and the outfielder is on pace for 31 homers and 104 RBI.
