Matt Wieters is starting at catcher for the second straight game.

Great sign for Wieters as he works his way back from elbow surgery. To this point, he had been unable to catch in back-to-back games.
Jul 7 - 4:37 PM

David Holmberg will be called up to start on Thursday when the Reds take on the Marlins.

The Reds were rolling with Josh Smith, who struggled in rotation duties and was sent back to Double-A on Monday. Holmberg appeared in seven games (five starts) last year and held a 4.80 ERA and 1.43 WHIP over 30 innings. He's putting up similar numbers in Triple-A this season and should not be relied upon for fantasy purposes.
Jul 7 - 4:31 PM

Denard Span (back) underwent an MRI on Tuesday and is set to see a specialist as he attempts to pinpoint the cause of recent back spasms.

Span's back locked up after a rain delay during Monday's game. He underwent an MRI on Tuesday and will see a back specialist. For now, he should be considered day-to-day. The injury is well-timed, if there is such a thing, as the All-Star Break will afford Span a chunk of rest as he looks to avoid hitting the disabled list.
Jul 7 - 4:21 PM

Fernando Abad (back) said that he feels OK after falling off an exercise ball last week.

Just a minor injury and apparently Abad is fine. Be wary of exercise balls.
Jul 7 - 4:17 PM

Jayson Werth (wrist) is hopeful that he'll be able to begin a rehab assignment after the All-Star Break.

Werth has been swinging with a fungo bat as he steadily works his way back from a fractured wrist suffered earlier in the year. Nationals manager Matt Williams has said that Werth is making "significant progress." Assuming a rehab assignment is on the horizon, it's possible that Werth could return to the team in early August.
Jul 7 - 4:13 PM

The Rangers have come to terms on a contract with international free agent INF Andy Ibanez.

Ibanez is 22 years old. He hit .283/.348/.419 with 13 homers in the last three seasons in Cuba. Known more for his glove than his bat at this time, he'll likely spend some time in the Ranger minor league system as the team looks to develop him. The terms of the contract have not yet been made public.
Jul 7 - 4:09 PM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that Andrew Miller (forearm) will be activated Wednesday.

Miller allowed two hits and struck out one batter in a scoreless inning Monday in a minor league rehab appearance with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The southpaw has been out for a month with a left forearm strain, but one appearance is all he needed to convince the Yankees that he was ready. Dellin Betances has been handling save chances, but Girardi said that it's likely Miller will be moved back into the closer role upon his return.
Jul 7 - 3:56 PM

Jason Castro is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Indians.

He's presumably getting a breather. Hank Conger will start behind the plate and bat sixth against Corey Kluber.
