The Twins are hoping Kyle Gibson (back) will be ready to start on Saturday.

Gibson was scratched from Wednesday's scheduled out due to a stiff back, but the hope is that it's a short-term concern. If Gibson isn't ready, the Twins are expected to call up Logan Darnell to fill in.

The Indians are expected to recall Zach McAllister from Triple-A Columbus to start on Saturday versus the Royals.

McAllister was sent down before the All-Star break before returning last weekend to start during a doubleheader. He pitched well in that outing and has been great at Columbus of late but will have to keep it up in order to keep a rotation spot over Danny Salazar once Justin Masterson (knee) returns. Salazar will start on Sunday.

MLB.com's Peter Gammons reports that the Padres are expected to promote Jeff Francoeur from Triple-A El Paso.

Frenchy has batted .294 with 15 homers and a .790 OPS at El Paso this season and has also done some pitching, posting a 4.26 ERA and 4/3 K/BB ratio over 6 1/3 relief innings. He figures to be used mostly -- if not exclusively -- as an outfielder with the Padres. It's a nice story, but Francoeur doesn't have any fantasy value.

Nolan Reimold (calf) could be activated from the disabled list next week.

Reimold has been out since mid-July with a left calf strain, but it sounds like the oft-injured outfield could be back around the time he's eligible. He had four hits in 12 at-bats for the Jays before going on the DL.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Blue Jays think Edwin Encarnacion (quad) could be activated from the disabled list next week.

Encarnacion resumed taking batting practice and fielding ground balls this week and evidently did it with no complications. The slugger has been on the shelf since early July with a strained right quad but is poised to rejoin the Blue Jays' lineup soon as the club continues a playoff push.
Jul 23 - 11:27 AM

Eric Hosmer is back in the Royals' lineup Wednesday.

Manager Ned Yost had indicated a desire to sit Hosmer until at least Thursday, but the first baseman has evidently talked his way back into the lineup a day early. Hosmer missed two games due to a bruised right hand, an ailment that was a result of a hit by pitch Sunday.

Rafael Furcal (hamstring) has yet to resume baseball activities.

Furcal has been on the shelf since mid-June following another hamstring injury. The veteran infielder is no safe bet to return at all this season.

Derek Dietrich (wrist) has yet to resume baseball activities.

Dietrich has already missed three weeks with a strained right wrist and obviously he's not close to returning. The Marlins have been going with Jordany Valdespin at second base with both Dietrich and Rafael Furcal (hamstring) out.
