Kyle Kendrick was forced to leave Friday's start against the Cardinals due to inflammation in his right shoulder.

Before departing, the right-hander had surrendered a pair of runs on four hits in his lone inning of work, including a home run by Matt Carpenter. He's considered day-to-day and should be ready to take his next turn through the rotation on Wednesday against the Mariners. He and his 6.43 ERA should continue to be avoided for fantasy purposes.

Mike Wright was forced to leave Friday's game against the Tigers with a left calf cramp.

Wright was called in early to replace a struggling Wei-Yin Chen, then was forced to become a spectator himself after working a scoreless inning. He should be considered day-to-day.

Phillies placed LHP Matt Harrison on the 15-day disabled list with lower back inflammation.

Harrison didn't look right in his three starts since returning from the disabled list, so the Phillies will play it cautiously and shut him down until he's fully healthy. There is no clear timetable for his return to the mound.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss announced Friday that John Axford has been removed from his role as the team's closer.

Weiss said Friday, "I had a conversation with John a little earlier and I told him I was going to get him out of that ninth inning for a little bit and let him catch his breath". He has blown four saves in his last five appearances and has had difficulty finding the strike zone. Rafael Betancourt and Tommy Kahnle are the two most likely candidates to take over the role.

Denard Span (back) is expected to resume doing baseball activities soon.

The outfielder has thus far been working on strengthening his core, but will soon progress to swinging and fielding drills. He will need a minor league rehab assignment to get his timing back, but could be able to return to the Nationals lineup in early August if he avoids any further setbacks.
Jul 31 - 7:59 PM

Alex Wood is scheduled to make his Dodgers debut on Tuesday against the Phillies.

The 24-year-old southpaw posted a 3.54 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 90/36 K/BB ratio over 119 1/3 innings with the Braves this season. He should see his fantasy value benefit from the move to the pitcher-friendly confines of Dodger Stadium.
Jul 31 - 7:19 PM

Orioles designated INF/OF Chris Parmelee for assignment.

He was sent out to create a spot on the active roster for the newly-acquired Gerardo Parra. The 27-year-old blasted three home runs in his first two games with the Orioles, but hit just .182/.217/.318 with one homer, six RBI and a 26/3 K/BB ratio in 30 games since.
Jul 31 - 7:10 PM

Coco Crisp (neck) will remain on his minor league rehab assignment with High-A Stockton throughout the weekend.

He is scheduled to play in games on Friday and Saturday before being re-evaluated by the Athletics medical staff on Sunday. If all goes well, there's a chance that he could rejoin the A's lineup on Monday.
