Eric Hosmer (hand) will not swing a bat Thursday.

Hosmer got hit in the right hand by a pitch on Sunday before returning to the lineup Wednesday, but he was forced to make an early exit due to "decreased grip strength." He might have to miss a few days to get back to 100 percent.
Jul 24 - 5:35 PM

Matt Albers (shoulder) isn't close to returning to action.

Albers has made slow progress since he landed on the disabled list in late April with right shoulder tendinitis. Similar to the Jesse Crain situation, Astros GM Jeff Luhnow said Thursday that the hope is he'll be ready to throw off a mound in the next 10 days, but he's still a ways off from pitching with the big club again.
Jul 24 - 5:17 PM

Mariners placed INF Willie Bloomquist on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee contusion.

Bloomquist apparently suffered the injury during Wednesday's game. Chris Taylor has essentially taken his place on the active roster and could push Brad Miller for playing time at shortstop.
Jul 24 - 5:14 PM

Mariners recalled DH/1B Jesus Montero from Triple-A Tacoma.

Montero will serve as the DH against the Orioles on Thursday night. His stay in the majors might be brief with Kendrys Morales on the way from Minnesota.
Jul 24 - 5:09 PM

Mariners purchased the contract of INF Chris Taylor from Triple-A Tacoma.

Taylor, a fifth-round pick in 2012, was batting .328/.397/.497 with five home runs and 14 stolen bases in 75 games this season in Triple-A. His arrival likely means a drop in playing time for the struggling Brad Miller. Taylor is worth a flier in AL-only leagues and even some deeper mixed formats assuming he gets regular at-bats.
Jul 24 - 5:07 PM

Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said Thursday that the hope is that Jesse Crain (shoulder) will begin throwing off the mound sometime in the next 10 days.

Crain is now recovered from the right biceps surgery he had last October, but he's still working on strengthening his shoulder. The Astros signed the veteran reliever for $3.25 million over the winter, but he's no lock to pitch in the majors this year.
Jul 24 - 5:04 PM

Dexter Fowler (intercostal) has yet to swing a bat or pick up a ball.

The Astros were originally hoping that Fowler would be ready at the start of the second half, but he's still a ways off from returning. These injuries tend to linger, so the Astros don't want to take any chances. He'll need a minor league rehab assignment before being activated, so it's probably safe to rule him out until August at this point.
Jul 24 - 4:58 PM

Ruben Tejada (head) said Thursday that he feels no symptoms.

Tejada left Wednesday's game after he was hit in the helmet with a pitch, but he passed a concussion test and feels no lingering effects. He's out of the lineup Thursday, but should be back soon enough.
