Chris Capuano pitched well in his Yankees debut on Saturday, surrendering a pair of runs on five hits over six innings in a no-decision.

The veteran left-hander punched out four on the afternoon while walking four. All of the damage against him came in the fifth inning where Melky Cabrera delivered an RBI double and scored on a sacrifice fly. His flyball tendencies won’t play well in his new home park, but he should be able to generate fantasy value with his ability to miss bats. He’ll take on the Red Sox in Boston on Friday.

Daisuke Matsuzaka does not need elbow surgery.

But he's not quite out of the woods yet. Matsuzaka was placed on the disabled list Saturday with elbow inflammation and won't pick up a baseball for another 7-10 days. It's possible he won't make it back this year.

Marwin Gonzalez has returned to the Astros starting lineup on Saturday.

Gonzalez sat out Friday's game as he was dealing with soreness in his right hamstring. The 25-year-old shortstop is hitting .271/.323/.394 with four homers and 14 RBI in his 64 games this season.

Endy Chavez has been scratched from the Mariners starting lineup on Saturday due to a jammed finger.

The injury doesn't sound as though it will require a trip to the disabled list, so consider him day-to-day. Corey Hart will get the start in right field in his place.

Indians recalled RHP Zach McAllister from Triple-A Columbus.

McAllister will start for the Indians on Saturday against the Royals. The 26-year-old is 3-5 with a 5.28 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 51/24 K/BB ratio over 59 2/3 innings with the Tribe this season. He should be avoided for fantasy purposes.

Indians optioned RHP Josh Tomlin to Triple-A Columbus.

He was a candidate to lose his spot in the rotation once Justin Masterson returned from the disabled list, but is being sent out in order to add Zach McAllister who is needed to start on Saturday. The veteran right-hander owns a 4.47 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 77/10 K/BB ratio over 86 2/3 innings on the season.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that 28 teams and up to 100 baseball officials attended the workout of Rusney Castillo in Miami on Saturday.

It's unclear which two teams decided not to attend, but there is obviously an overwhelming amount of interest in the 27-year-old Cuban defector. He's expected to play in the outfield at the major league level, and could reach the big leagues late this season if he lands in the right situation.
Jul 26 - 3:28 PM

Shane Victorino is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

Victorino is getting a breather after playing in four consecutive games. The Red Sox want to give him a rest here and there in order to keep him healthy for the remainder of the season. Expect him to return on Sunday.
