Rockies placed RHP Christian Bergman on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 29, with right shoulder fatigue.

It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined. Bergman holds a 4.66 ERA over 38 2/3 innings this season.
Jun 30 - 8:47 PM

Rockies placed RHP John Axford on the temporary inactive list.

Manager Walt Weiss said that the reliever "just has things to take care of at home." He did note that Axford's son, Jameson, who was bitten by a rattlesnake during spring training, is fine. It's not clear how long Axford will be away. LaTroy Hawkins, Rafael Betancourt and Tommy Kahnle could be in the mix for saves in Axford's absence.

Phillies interim manager Pete Mackanin said Tuesday that he "would like to think that Cesar (Hernandez) has proven that he deserves a chance to be the everyday second baseman."

Hernandez, 25, entered Tuesday batting .277/.365/.365 on the season and .328/.394/.406 in June. Chase Utley, meanwhile, is on the disabled list with an ankle injury and sports an ugly .179/.257/.275 line this season. It's hard to believe the Phils would bench Utley even given his struggles, and Mackanin did note that he didn't "want to get ahead of myself." However, if Hernandez keeps performing, it's possible. Notable is that the Phillies have a $15 million club option for 2016 on Utley that automatically vests if he reaches 500 plate appearances.

Hunter Pence (wrist) took swings off a tee with a fungo bat on Tuesday.

He also played catch as he resumed baseball activities for the first time in nearly two weeks. There remains no timetable for Pence's return, as the Giants will have to see how his ailing left wrist responds to increased activity.
Jun 30 - 8:05 PM

The Braves are expected to recall Manny Banuelos from Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday to make his major league debut versus the Nationals.

He'll be taking Williams Perez's (foot) spot in the rotation. Acquired from the Yankees over the offseason in the David Carpenter deal, Banuelos holds a 2.29 ERA and 69/38 K/BB ratio over 82 2/3 innings for Gwinnett this season. His stay might be short, but he's worth a look in NL-only leagues.
Jun 30 - 7:43 PM

Sonny Gray remains hospitalized due to the flu.

Gray, who had to be scratched from Tuesday's scheduled outing, first started feeling under the weather Monday night and is still being taken care of. Athletics manager Bob Melvin did say the righty is feeling better, but it was too soon to tell when he'd be ready to start again.
Jun 30 - 7:27 PM

James Paxton (finger) played catch from 60 feet on Tuesday.

It's a nice step, but Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon cautioned that it's "going to be a slow process" for Paxton. "Pax is going to be out for a while," the skipper added. It's not a surprise, as Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune speculated last week that the lefty returning prior to August would be "optimistic."
Jun 30 - 7:24 PM

Josh Reddick is not in the Athletics' lineup Tuesday.

Reddick is a little banged up, and with Rockies throwing lefty Jorge De La Rosa, it was a good opportunity to sit him. He'll be available off the bench. Sam Fuld is in right field in his place.
