Craig Mish of Fantasy Sports Radio reports that the Yankees are calling up third base prospect Miguel Andujar from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

It's unclear at this point what the corresponding move will be, but putting Matt Holliday (fatigue) on the disabled list is a possibility. Ranked by MLB.com as the Yankees' No. 9 prospect, Andujar has batted .312/.346/.491 with eight homers and 54 RBI between Double- and Triple-A this season. The 22-year-old should see some starts in the designated hitter spot while Holliday is out and also gives the Yanks an alternative at third base to the struggling Chase Headley. He's worth a shot in deeper formats.

Freddie Freeman (wrist) is hoping to be activated from the disabled list on July 9 for the beginning of a series versus the Nationals.

Freeman will take live batting practice Wednesday and if that goes well will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday. If he does indeed return on July 9, he'll have beat his initial timetable by three weeks. "Saturday game, then be off Sunday, play Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday," Freeman said, "then if I feel I can hit (Max) Scherzer’s heater, or whoever’s, then I’ll say I’m ready to roll and meet the team in D.C." The plan is still for Freeman to come back as a third baseman, a position he hasn't played since rookie ball. It will allow the Braves to keep hot-hitting Matt Adams in the lineup at first base.

Braves pitching prospect Patrick Weigel underwent Tommy John surgery Tuesday.

Weigel, 22, had a chance to debut this year if he hadn't gotten hurt. As it is, he'll now likely be sidelined until at least the second half of next season. He posted a 4.14 ERA and 68/28 K/BB ratio over 78 1/3 innings between Double- and Triple-A this season.

Robert Murray of FanRag Sports reports that the Diamondbacks are recalling Ketel Marte.

Nick Ahmed is headed to the disabled list with a fractured hand, so it's not a surprise that Marte is on the way up. The 23-year-old has had a big season in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League, batting .338/.391/.514 with six homers and seven steals for Triple-A Reno. He should play pretty regularly at shortstop for now, with Chris Owings seeing more time in the outfield. Marte is worth a shot in deeper leagues.

Austin Slater (hip) had a pinch-hit, infield single in the Giants' extra-innings win over the Rockies.

Slater hasn't started the last two games because of a tight right hip flexor. But, an MRI came back clean and the fact he was able to pinch-hit suggests he might not be far from a return to the lineup.
Jun 28 - 8:24 AM

Marwin Gonzalez (oblique) singled in one of his four at-bats in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

Gonzalez had been unavailable for a few days with an oblique issue. He's hitting .340/.411/.440 this month but has just one homer.
Jun 28 - 8:20 AM

Denard Span posted three singles with a pair of RBI across seven at-bats in Tuesday's victory against the visiting Rockies.

The veteran has come alive with three consecutive multi-hit outings, and he has hit safely in 12 of his past 14 games to raise his average from .253 to .287 just since June 13. He has collected two or more hits in eight of those outings to re-emerge as a solid fantasy option in some formats.
Jun 28 - 3:55 AM

Matt Cain allowed three earned runs, six hits and three walks with three strikeouts across six innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Rockies.

Cain posted his first quality start in six outings dating back to May 26, but he still hasn't won since May 15. He'll look to get back into the win column in his next scheduled start Tuesday afternoon in Detroit before a second outing next week against Miami. As a two-start pitcher he might be worth streaming in NL-only play.
