Eric Hosmer (hand) could be sidelined for up to six weeks.

The initial timetable floated was four weeks, but apparently Hosmer could be on the shelf even longer than that. The first baseman is dealing with a stress fracture in his right hand, an ailment that he originally suffered over a week ago but played with after initial X-rays didn't find anything. The Royals will go with a combination of Billy Butler and Raul Ibanez at first base while Hosmer is sidelined.

Brad Peacock will rejoin the Astros' rotation following the trade of Jarred Cosart.

Peacock holds a 4.93 ERA and a 1.59 WHIP over 87 2/3 innings this season and allowed seven runs across 3 2/3 frames in his last start. It's not clear when his next start will be, but he can safely be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Aug 1 - 10:26 AM

Tyler Skaggs (forearm) is expected to be placed on the disabled list.

Skaggs' elbow ligament is fine and the Angels are confident his forearm tightness is a minor issues, but they don't want to take any chances. He'll undergo an MRI Friday before the Halos officially make a decision. "The doctor said the UCL [ulnar collateral ligament] is fine," Skaggs said. "At the moment, it’s not looking bad. I have full range of motion, and the tests went well. We’ll see tomorrow, though. It’s not feeling too bad right now."

Jordan Pacheco and Cliff Pennington (thumb) are expected to share time at third base for the Diamondbacks following the trade of Martin Prado.

Pennington is still on the disabled list but is expected back soon. Pacheco, though, is the one out of the two that could have a bit of fantasy value. He went 2-for-4 with an RBI in his first start at third base Thursday and hit .309/.341/.421 in his rookie season a couple years ago with the Rockies. Andy Marte hit a pinch-hit homer Thursday and could also get a shot at the hot corner, but for now it appears a Pacheco/Pennington timeshare is on the docket.

Braves optioned LHP Chasen Shreve to Triple-A Gwinnett.

The Braves need to clear some roster space following the trade for Emilio Bonifacio and James Russell. They still have one more move to announce before Friday's game. Shreve allowed just one run over five relief innings for Atlanta and should be back later this season.
Aug 1 - 8:46 AM

Jason Heyward (back) is hoping to return to the Braves' lineup on Saturday.

Heyward has sat out three straight games with a sore back, but he started to feel some relief on Thursday. He'll hope to play in the final two games of the weekend series in San Diego.
Aug 1 - 8:44 AM

Tyler Skaggs has been told that the ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow is fine.

He'll undergo further testing on Friday before it's determined how much time he'll miss. Skaggs exited Thursday's start against the Orioles with tightness in his left forearm, but it's sounding like he has a shot to not miss his next turn.
Aug 1 - 8:43 AM

Eugenio Suarez went 0-for-3 but had a sacrifice fly Thursday in his return to the lineup.

Suarez was pulled from Tuesday's game and then sat out Wednesday with lower back tightness, but he should be fine moving forward. The 23-year-old is batting .254/.338/.385 with three homers in 43 contests for the Tigers.
