A specialist has confirmed that Steven Souza doesn't have a fracture or tendon damage in his ailing right pinkie.

The Rays don't expect Souza to need a stint on the disabled list, although it's possible that could change if he doesn't feel improvement in the coming days. The outfielder is available Monday to pinch-run and/or play defense.
Jul 6 - 5:31 PM

Yimi Garcia will start Monday's game versus the Phillies.

Eric Surkamp had been expected to get the call, but he'll instead follow Garcia in what will be a bullpen game. Garcia hasn't started a game since 2011 in rookie ball.
Jul 6 - 5:24 PM

Lorenzo Cain will be sidelined for a few days after aggravating his left hamstring injury on Sunday.

It's an ailment Cain has been trying to play through for a couple weeks now. Royals manager Ned Yost expects the outfielder to be fine for next week's All-Star game, but it sounds like he could be sidelined for most of this week's action. Jarrod Dyson is handling center field Monday.
Jul 6 - 5:22 PM

Rafael Soriano has been assigned to Double-A Tennessee.

Soriano threw in extended spring training for a while after the Cubs signed him last month, but he's ready to pitch in real games now. He shouldn't need too many tune-up outings, so expect the veteran reliever to be added to the big league bullpen shortly after the All-Star break.
Jul 6 - 5:16 PM

Yordano Ventura (hand) has officially been cleared to start on Thursday against the Rays after a successful bullpen session Monday.

Ventura had been slated for another rehab start, but the Royals changed their mind after he felt good in a 'pen session over the weekend. Given the nice matchup, fantasy owners can probably go ahead and roll with the righty this week. Joe Blanton will head back to the bullpen following Ventura's return.
Jul 6 - 5:14 PM

Mets purchased the contract of OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Nieuwenhuis was traded by the Mets to the Angels in late May, but the Mets then claimed him off waivers in June and now he's back in the majors in July. He'll provide some outfield depth.
Jul 6 - 5:09 PM

Mets optioned OF Darrell Ceciliani to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Ceciliani hit just .206/.270/.279 over 39 games for the Mets. Kirk Nieuwenhuis has taken his spot on the roster.
Jul 6 - 5:06 PM

Royals recalled OF Paulo Orlando from Triple-A Omaha.

Orlando got off to a nice start earlier this season for the Royals but eventually faded, hitting .241/.274/.384 overall. He'll back up at all three outfield spots.
