In addition to his concussion, Josh Rutledge has also been dealing with "persistent soreness" in his left hip.

Rutledge reportedly suffered his concussion on Memorial Day but didn't alert the Red Sox of his symptoms until recently. He was finally diagnosed with a concussion on Friday and was placed on the DL a day later. Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal listed a few of his symptoms including "a lack of focus, an inability to pick up spin on pitches" and "a bit of disorientation." With Rutledge, Pablo Sandoval and Brock Holt all on the shelf, the Red Sox have resorted to starting Deven Marrero at third base, though ex-Cardinal Jhonny Peralta could be an option soon.

Trea Turner went 5-for-5 with two runs batted in and four runs scored as the Nationals thrashed the Reds on Saturday.

All five hits were singles and he also walked in the ballgame. His team amassed 19 hits and seven walks as they circled the bases all afternoon. The big day boosts Turner's slash line to .275/.312/.424 in 292 plate appearances. He has hit seven home runs, scored 49 times, driven in 32 runs and swiped 28 bags on the season.

Michael Taylor went 4-for-5, belted two home runs, drove in three runs and scored four times as his team routed the Reds 18-3 on Saturday.

He delivered a week's worth of production in one day in this good, old-fashioned barn-burner of a ballgame. He singled and scored in the second inning, bashed a two-run dinger in the fourth inning, ripped a solo shot in the sixth, then doubled and scored in the eighth. He is batting .273/.306/.507 with 10 longballs, 32 runs and 28 RBI. He has stolen seven bases in nine tries.

Matt Shoemaker (forearm) has been cleared to resume throwing.

Shoemaker was sent back to Los Angeles after feeling renewed soreness in his strained forearm earlier this week, but has already gotten the green light to resume throwing. He's still a long shot to make his next turn Friday against Seattle. Parker Bridwell has been starting in his place.

Joe Ross hurled seven innings of one-run baseball as his team won a laugher against the Reds on Saturday.

He gave up six hits and one walk, with the only damage coming on a solo homer by Patrick Kivlehan in the sixth inning. Ross struck out five batters and improved his record to 4-3 with a 5.40 ERA. He has a solid 52/12 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 56 2/3 innings spread over 10 starts.

Drew Smyly (elbow) threw 50 pitches on Saturday.

25 of those pitches were thrown as part of a simulated inning. Smyly will throw one more simulated game before setting out on a minor league rehab assignment. The left-hander should make his Mariners debut sometime next month.

Danny Valencia was scratched from the Mariners' lineup Saturday against the Astros.

Taylor Motter is now starting at first base and batting eighth. So far there's been no word on why Valencia was scratched. We'll let you know as soon as we find out.
Jun 24 - 8:08 PM

Jerad Eickhoff (back) will throw a bullpen session on Sunday.

The Phillies haven't given a timetable for Eickhoff's return but they should have a better idea of where he stands after Sunday's pen session. Eickhoff landed on the DL with an upper back strain earlier this week. Mark Leiter has taken his spot in the starting rotation.
