Twins placed OF/DH Robbie Grossman on the 10-day disabled list with a fractured left thumb.

Grossman suffered the injury a collision with Byron Buxton on Thursday. He's expected to be sidelined for a minimum of three weeks. Mitch Garver has replaced Grossman on the roster and should see his fair share of starts. Eduardo Escobar also figures to see an uptick in playing time.

Cubs recalled LHP Rob Zastryzny from Triple-A Iowa.

Zastryzny will provide length out of the bullpen after Jon Lester's abbreviated start Thursday. He allowed three runs over four innings in his lone appearance in the majors this season.

Cubs recalled RHP Felix Pena from Triple-A Iowa.

Pena has posted a 4.50 ERA over 10 appearances with the big club this season. He'll be used in middle relief.
Aug 18 - 12:35 PM

Cubs placed RHP Justin Grimm on the 10-day disabled list with a right index finger infection.

It shouldn't be a long stint on the DL. Grimm holds a 5.40 ERA over 39 relief appearances this season.
Aug 18 - 12:34 PM

Cubs placed LHP Jon Lester on the 10-day disabled list with general left shoulder fatigue.

It's not ideal, obviously, but Lester's shoulder and lat are structurally sound and he's not expected to be on the disabled list long. The lefty should have a chance to be back before the end of the month. Mike Montgomery will slide into the Cubs' rotation in the meantime.
Aug 18 - 12:31 PM

Rays activated OF Kevin Kiermaier from the 60-day disabled list.

Kiermaier is ready to roll after missing over two months of action with a fractured hip (he also had a minor back issue last month). He was just 3-for-24 on a rehab assignment and might need a few extra days off initially, but fantasy owners should feel free to re-insert Kiermaier into their lineups. He's in center field and batting leadoff Friday.
Aug 18 - 12:29 PM

Roberto Osuna will not be available to pitch Friday due to the flu.

He's not even at the ballpark, as the Blue Jays have told Osuna to stay at the team hotel to rest. Hopefully he'll be ready to go Saturday. Ryan Tepera will close on Friday if Toronto has a save chance. Danny Barnes and Dominic Leone are also unavailable Friday due to recent usage, so the Jays are shorthanded in the bullpen.
Aug 18 - 12:14 PM

Willson Contreras (hamstring) played catch Friday.

It's his first bit of baseball activity since he landed on the disabled list a week ago with a strained right hamstring. Obviously, running is going to be the biggest test for Contreras, and he's unlikely to be cleared for that anytime soon. The young catcher is expected to be sidelined until at least mid-September.
