Randal Grichuk (groin) is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup again on Tuesday night.

Grichuk is still nursing a groin injury, though an MRI taken Monday showed nothing serious. Peter Bourjos will start in center field against the Reds and Mike Leake.
Jul 28 - 4:34 PM

Yadier Molina (illness) is back in the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Reds.

Molina made an early exit from Monday's game because he wasn't feeling well. It obviously wasn't anything major. He is batting fifth versus righty Mike Leake.
Jul 28 - 4:32 PM

Royals designated RHP Joe Blanton for assignment.

The move clears a 40-man roster spot for Johnny Cueto. Blanton had a 3.89 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 40/7 K/BB ratio in 41 2/3 innings (four starts, 11 relief appearances) this season for Kansas City. He is 34 years old but will probably draw interest on waivers.
Jul 28 - 4:30 PM

Mike Trout is not in the Angels' lineup Tuesday.

Trout tweaked his left wrist Sunday afternoon on a diving catch, though he also went 4-for-4 with two home runs and five RBI in that same game. It's obviously not a serious issue. Daniel Robertson will start in center field Tuesday night against the Astros.
Jul 28 - 4:18 PM

Henderson Alvarez is undergoing shoulder surgery.

Alvarez was examined this week by Dr. James Andrews, who apparently recommended the shoulder procedure. The 25-year-old right-hander was limited to just four starts this season because of what was originally labeled shoulder inflammation. It's not clear if he'll be ready by next spring. Shoulders are often trickier than elbows.
Jul 28 - 4:14 PM

Cole Hamels' next start has been pushed to Friday.

Hamels is scheduled to start Thursday, but the Phillies obviously don't want to use him one day before the July 31 trade deadline. His start Friday will likely be in a different uniform. The left-hander threw a no-hitter against the Cubs on Saturday afternoon.
Jul 28 - 4:11 PM

According to Barry Svrluga of the Washington Post, the Nationals are nearing a deal for Jonathan Papelbon.

Papelbon has said that he won't waive his no-trade clause unless he gets to remain a closer, so he's presumably going to push Drew Storen out of the ninth-inning role in Washington. Papelbon, who's making $13 million this year and carries a $13 million vesting option for 2016, owns a sparkling 1.59 ERA and 40/8 K/BB ratio through 39 1/3 innings this season.
Jul 28 - 4:04 PM

Angels recalled INF/OF Efren Navarro from Triple-A Salt Lake.

As expected, Navarro will replace Matt Joyce (concussion) on the active roster. The 29-year-old is batting .260/.306/.312 in 82 plate appearances this season and will serve as a left-handed bat off the bench.
