Trea Turner (wrist) took grounders on Tuesday afternoon at Nationals Park.

That's a strong indication that Turner's checkup X-ray on Tuesday showed significant healing, though the star shortstop still hasn't been cleared to throw. He's been out for the last month with a fractured right wrist and there is no timetable yet for his return to Washington's active roster.

Scott Feldman (knee) has begun a throwing program in Cincinnati.

And manager Bryan Price told reporters on Tuesday afternoon that the right-hander could quickly progress to mound work. Feldman was placed on the disabled list July 18 with knee inflammation.

Jaycob Brugman is day-to-day with neck discomfort.

Brugman told reporters that he woke up with a stiff neck on Tuesday morning but will undergo treatment and doesn't expect to be sidelined long. The 25-year-old outfielder is batting .255/.341/.318 with two home runs and one stolen base through his first 35 major league games.
Jul 25 - 4:49 PM

Marlins recalled C/1B Tomas Telis from Triple-A New Orleans.

Telis could see some run at first base while Justin Bour recovers from an oblique strain, but the 26-year-old is a .230/.260/.278 career hitter in the major leagues and carries no fantasy relevance.
Jul 25 - 4:47 PM

Marlins placed 1B Justin Bour on the 10-day disabled list with a right oblique strain.

Bour suffered the injury in Monday night's series opener against the Rangers and will probably miss the next 3-4 weeks. The 29-year-old first baseman leaves behind a stellar .289/.366/.548 batting line with 21 home runs and 63 RBI in 87 games. Tomas Telis has been recalled from the minors in a corresponding roster move.
Jul 25 - 4:46 PM

Marlins purchased the contract of INF/OF Mike Aviles from Triple-A New Orleans.

Aviles will give the Marlins infield depth while shortstop J.T. Riddle recovers from a biceps injury. The veteran utilityman went hitless in seven plate appearances earlier this season with Miami.
Jul 25 - 4:43 PM

Marlins placed SS J.T. Riddle on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to July 22, with biceps tendinitis.

Riddle has been sidelined for nearly a week with this upper-arm discomfort and the Marlins finally decided to quit playing a man short. The hope is Riddle will be ready for activation when first eligible in early August. Mike Aviles has been promoted from Triple-A New Orleans to give Miami infield depth.
Jul 25 - 4:41 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports is hearing that Mets shortstop prospect Amed Rosario "could be up in a week or so."

The promotion will probably come after the Mets unload some pieces around the July 31 trade deadline. Rosario, 21, is batting .329/.367/.473 with seven home runs, 55 RBI, 17 stolen bases, and 59 runs scored in 88 games this season at Triple-A Las Vegas. He was recently ranked the No. 4 overall prospect in the sport by Baseball America.
