Javier Baez launched a two-run homer and added an RBI single in Friday's win over the Blue Jays.

Baez plated a run with a single in the second inning and gave the Cubs some much needed insurance runs in the bottom of the eighth with a long two-run shot off of Tim Mayza. The 24-year-old now has an even 20 home runs on the season, and half of them have come since the All-Star break. He's also hitting .308 in the second half.

Josh Tomlin (hamstring) is expected to throw a simulated game on Monday.

That's provided that everything goes smoothly with his bullpen session on Friday. The veteran right-hander has been sidelined since the end of July due to left hamstring strain. Provided he can avoid any setbacks, he should be ready to rejoin the Indians' rotation in early September.

Steve Pearce went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Friday's loss to the Cubs.

Pearce got the scoring started when he plated Justin Smoak in the top of the first inning. He added another single in the eighth and scored a run. The 34-year-old has been terrific so far for the Blue Jays in the second half.

Pirates recalled LHP Steven Brault from Triple-A Indianapolis.

Brault has posted a nifty 1.94 ERA and 109/44 K/BB ratio over 120 1/3 innings for Indy this season. He'll work in long relief for now.
Aug 18 - 5:58 PM

Pirates placed LHP Wade LeBlanc on the 10-day disabled list with a left quad strain.

LeBlanc must have been injured during Thursday's appearance versus the Cardinals when he allowed four runs. Steven Brault has taken his spot in the bullpen.

Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch writes that the concern with Trevor Rosenthal (elbow) centers around "the stability of his ligament, and surgery is option."

The level of damage in Rosenthal's ulnar collateral ligament isn't known at this point, but obviously Tommy John surgery would be the worst-case scenario. He's already received one opinion but will get a second before a decision on the next course of action is made. Seung Hwan Oh is back in the closer role for the Cards with Rosenthal sidelined.
Aug 18 - 5:55 PM

Salvador Perez (intercostal) will resume taking batting practice this weekend and could be activated for next week's series versus the Rockies that begins Tuesday.

Perez has slowly ramped up his workouts this week and hasn't experienced any setbacks with his strained right intercostal muscle. He will not require a rehab assignment before returning, so if batting practice goes well this weekend he'll be ready to roll.
Aug 18 - 5:51 PM

Indians placed OF Abraham Almonte on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

He suffered the injury during Thursday's doubleheader versus the Twins. It's unclear how long Almonte will be out.
