Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Patrick Corbin (elbow) could make his season debut Saturday against the Rockies.
Corbin was expected to make a final rehab start Thursday, but the club is holding him back with the idea that he could be needed with the big club sooner. Corbin owns a 4.76 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 17 minor league innings as he makes his way back from Tommy John surgery. Corbin is worth owning, if not starting, in all fantasy leagues.
Athletics released C Luke Carlin.
Carlin hit just .146/.315/.214 through 34 games with the Athletics' Triple-A affiliate. The 34-year-old may have a hard time catching on elsewhere at this point.
Tim Hudson has been excused from the Giants for a week for personal reasons.
There isn't much information available at this time. Hudson gave up five runs in 6 2/3 innings to the Rockies on Friday and has a rough 4.68 ERA (76 ERA+) this season.
MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports that the Twins are calling up prospect Miguel Sano.
Kennys Vargas has already been optioned to Triple-A Rochester to open up a roster spot. Sano, 22, boasts a .918 OPS with 15 home runs and 48 RBI in 66 games this season at the Double-A level. He's primarily played third base in the minors, but look for the Twins to use him as their everyday designated hitter. Sano has been a consensus top-20 prospect for going on four years and is worth a shot in every mixed fantasy league for his power potential.
Jered Weaver (hip) threw a second bullpen session Wednesday without issue.
Weaver has been on the disabled list since June 21 with left hip irritation and probably won't be back until sometime after the All-Star break. A rehab start or two may be in the cards for the soft-tossing righty.
Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) is back in the lineup Wednesday night at High-A Tampa.
Ellsbury was held out Tuesday with some mild fatigue. He is still on track to rejoin the Yankees on Friday.
Jarred Cosart will return to the Marlins' rotation on Saturday night against the Cubs.
Jose Urena is probably going to get the boot. Cosart returned from a battle with vertigo last week after sitting out for over a month. The 25-year-old right-hander owns a 4.12 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 27/17 K/BB ratio in 43 2/3 innings this season for the Fish.
Padres OF prospect Rymer Liriano crushed three hits including a two-run homer Tuesday for Triple-A El Paso.
Liriano had been hitless in his previous two games with four strikeouts in nine at-bats. The 24-year-old ranks fourth in the Pacific Coast League in runs (51) and is tied for sixth in walks (35). He's hit .357 over his last seven games with four RBI. Liriano played 38 games for the Padres in 2014 but hasn't gotten a chance this year because of San Diego's crowded outfield.
