Dallas Keuchel (neck) said Thursday that he is aiming to resume throwing off a mound this weekend.

Keuchel is making slow but somewhat-steady progress from a neck injury that has bothered him since May. Astros manager A.J. Hinch acknowledged earlier this week that the ace left-hander probably won't return to the rotation until after the All-Star break.

Yonder Alonso (knee) is not in the Athletics' starting lineup Thursday in Houston.

Alonso was removed from Wednesday night's loss to the Astros after fouling a ball off his right knee in the top of the eighth inning, but he only suffered a contusion and should be ready to rock following one day of rest. Matt Olson is starting at first base and batting sixth for the A's on Thursday afternoon against Astros right-hander Brad Peacock.

Alex Presley (concussion) needs at least a few extra days of rest and recovery.

Presley is eligible to be activated from the 7-day concussion disabled list on Friday, but he's not quite symptom-free yet and the Tigers aren't going to rush him back. The 31-year-old outfielder has batted .245/.302/.347 with one homer and two steals in 18 games this season for Detroit.

Whit Merrifield is out of the Royals' starting lineup Thursday afternoon against the Tigers.

Ramon Torres will start at second base and bat leadoff versus Detroit right-hander Michael Fulmer. It looks to be a routine day of rest for Merrifield, who's slashing .279/.320/.437 with six home runs and eight stolen bases in 59 games this season for Kansas City.

Colby Rasmus (hip) is not ready to come off the 10-day disabled list.

Rasmus has been out for exactly 10 days (as of Thursday) and he had been aiming to return when first eligible, but his surgically-repaired hip is still giving him trouble. There's no timetable at this point for him to even begin a minor league rehab assignment. It's going to be a while.

Josh Norris of Baseball America reports the Yankees are promoting prospect Dustin Fowler from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

And he figures to see a good amount of playing time right out of the gate with recent callup Tyler Austin battling a hamstring injury. The 22-year-old Fowler was sporting an .857 OPS with 12 home runs, 42 RBI, 13 stolen bases, and 48 runs scored through 69 games this season at the Triple-A level. He carries some deep-league fantasy appeal, though it might not be a very long stay.

Rangers activated RHP Andrew Cashner from the 10-day disabled list.

Cashner will return to the Rangers' rotation Thursday afternoon against the Indians after missing a little under two weeks with a left oblique strain. The 30-year-old right-hander has registered a so-so 3.50 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, and 33/31 K/BB ratio in 69 1/3 innings (12 starts) this season for Texas.
Jun 29 - 9:21 AM

Rangers optioned RHP Preston Claiborne to Triple-A Round Rock.

Claiborne allowed three earned runs over two innings of relief in his one appearance with Texas. He's getting the boot to clear a 25-man roster spot for Andrew Cashner.
