J.J. Hardy (wrist) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Norfolk on Monday.

He hasn't played in two months due to a fractured wrist, so Hardy figures to need a good number of rehab games. He's also not guaranteed a starting job once he returns with Tim Beckham playing so well.
Aug 20 - 11:23 AM

Orioles recalled RHP Alec Asher from Triple-A Norfolk.

Asher has posted a 5.53 ERA over 21 appearances -- six starts -- for the Orioles this season. He'll give the bullpen some length.
Aug 20 - 11:21 AM

Orioles optioned RHP Miguel Castro to Double-A Bowie.

Castro pitched 4 2/3 scoreless relief innings the last two days, but the Orioles needed a fresh arm. That arm belongs to Alec Asher.
Aug 20 - 11:20 AM

Cameron Maybin (knee) remained out of the Angels' lineup Sunday.

He hasn't played since Wednesday due to nagging right knee soreness. It's the same knee that sent Maybin to the disabled list and he might have to head back there if he doesn't improve in a hurry. Ben Revere will get another start in left field and in the leadoff spot.
Aug 20 - 11:18 AM

Clayton Kershaw (back) is on track to begin a rehab assignment next weekend with either Double-A Tulsa or Triple-A Oklahoma City.

That's assuming he gets through a simulated game -- which will take place Tuesday or Wednesday -- with no issues. Kershaw tossed a simulated game last Wednesday with no problems. It's unclear at this point how many rehab starts the left-hander will require. Kershaw has been out for the last four weeks with a lower back strain.

Kris Bryant is not in the Cubs' lineup Sunday.

It's a rare day off for the slugger. Tommy La Stella will handle third base. Jason Heyward is also getting a breather, as the Cubs have Kyle Schwarber, Albert Almora and Jon Jay in the outfield.

Cubs optioned C Victor Caratini to Triple-A Iowa.

He's clearing out to make room for waiver claim Rene Rivera. Caratini might not see much/any more time in the majors this season with Rivera now around and Willson Contreras (hamstring) slated to return next month.
Aug 20 - 11:07 AM

Dexter Fowler (back) expects to be back in the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

The Cards had Magneuris Sierra on their taxi squad in case Fowler didn't recover quickly from a sore back, but it sounds like he'll be fine. He's hit .441/.587/.824 this month since returning from the disabled list.
