Mike Montgomery will take Jon Lester's (shoulder) spot in the Cubs' rotation.

Lester isn't expected to be sidelined long, but Montgomery should get at least a couple starts. He's posted a 3.64 ERA and 77/45 K/BB ratio over 96 1/3 innings across 35 appearances -- eight starts -- for the Cubbies this season. Montgomery is worth scooping up in deep leagues.

Twins recalled C/INF/OF Mitch Garver from Triple-A Rochester.

Garver, 26, has batted .291/.387/.541 with 17 homers for Rochester this season while seeing starts at catcher, left field and first base. He should see a good amount of playing time while Robbie Grossman (thumb) is sidelined and is worth a shot in deeper leagues. Garver was ranked by MLB.com as the team's No. 23 prospect.
Aug 18 - 12:43 PM

Twins placed OF/DH Robbie Grossman on the 10-day disabled list with a fractured left thumb.

Grossman suffered the injury a collision with Byron Buxton on Thursday. He's expected to be sidelined for a minimum of three weeks. Mitch Garver has replaced Grossman on the roster and should see his fair share of starts. Eduardo Escobar also figures to see an uptick in playing time.
Aug 18 - 12:40 PM

Cubs recalled LHP Rob Zastryzny from Triple-A Iowa.

Zastryzny will provide length out of the bullpen after Jon Lester's abbreviated start Thursday. He allowed three runs over four innings in his lone appearance in the majors this season.
Aug 18 - 12:37 PM

Cubs recalled RHP Felix Pena from Triple-A Iowa.

Pena has posted a 4.50 ERA over 10 appearances with the big club this season. He'll be used in middle relief.
Aug 18 - 12:35 PM

Cubs placed RHP Justin Grimm on the 10-day disabled list with a right index finger infection.

It shouldn't be a long stint on the DL. Grimm holds a 5.40 ERA over 39 relief appearances this season.
Aug 18 - 12:34 PM

Cubs placed LHP Jon Lester on the 10-day disabled list with general left shoulder fatigue.

It's not ideal, obviously, but Lester's shoulder and lat are structurally sound and he's not expected to be on the disabled list long. The lefty should have a chance to be back before the end of the month. Mike Montgomery will slide into the Cubs' rotation in the meantime.
Aug 18 - 12:31 PM

Rays activated OF Kevin Kiermaier from the 60-day disabled list.

Kiermaier is ready to roll after missing over two months of action with a fractured hip (he also had a minor back issue last month). He was just 3-for-24 on a rehab assignment and might need a few extra days off initially, but fantasy owners should feel free to re-insert Kiermaier into their lineups. He's in center field and batting leadoff Friday.
