Roenis Elias (oblique) has been throwing simulated games.

He's expected to require a few more throwing sessions before being cleared for game action. Elias has been out all season due to an intercostal strain.

Mets manager Terry Collins admitted after Tuesday's game that they "don’t know how long it will be" before Michael Conforto (hand) returns to the lineup.

Two rounds of X-rays confirmed that Conforto doesn't have a fracture in his left hand after he was hit by a pitch Sunday. However, the outfielder was still in enough pain Tuesday that he wasn't even able to grip a bat, let alone swing it. It's possible he'll show up Wednesday feeling much better, but for now Conforto's status remains cloudy. The Mets will use Yoenis Cespedes, Curtis Granderson and Jay Bruce in the outfield while Conforto is out.

Ryan Flaherty (shoulder) remains shut down from throwing.

Flaherty felt renewed discomfort in his right shoulder earlier this month when he tried to extend his throwing. He's out indefinitely.

Anthony Santander (forearm) has resumed a throwing program.

The Rule 5 pick has been out all season with a right forearm strain. At this point it's not looking like a great bet that Santander will get much of a shot this season.

Craig Mish of Fantasy Sports Radio reports that the Yankees are calling up third base prospect Miguel Andujar from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

It's unclear at this point what the corresponding move will be, but putting Matt Holliday (fatigue) on the disabled list is a possibility. Ranked by MLB.com as the Yankees' No. 9 prospect, Andujar has batted .312/.346/.491 with eight homers and 54 RBI between Double- and Triple-A this season. The 22-year-old should see some starts in the designated hitter spot while Holliday is out and also gives the Yanks an alternative at third base to the struggling Chase Headley. He's worth a shot in deeper formats.

Freddie Freeman (wrist) is hoping to be activated from the disabled list on July 9 for the beginning of a series versus the Nationals.

Freeman will take live batting practice Wednesday and if that goes well will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday. If he does indeed return on July 9, he'll have beat his initial timetable by three weeks. "Saturday game, then be off Sunday, play Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday," Freeman said, "then if I feel I can hit (Max) Scherzer’s heater, or whoever’s, then I’ll say I’m ready to roll and meet the team in D.C." The plan is still for Freeman to come back as a third baseman, a position he hasn't played since rookie ball. It will allow the Braves to keep hot-hitting Matt Adams in the lineup at first base.

Braves pitching prospect Patrick Weigel underwent Tommy John surgery Tuesday.

Weigel, 22, had a chance to debut this year if he hadn't gotten hurt. As it is, he'll now likely be sidelined until at least the second half of next season. He posted a 4.14 ERA and 68/28 K/BB ratio over 78 1/3 innings between Double- and Triple-A this season.

Robert Murray of FanRag Sports reports that the Diamondbacks are recalling Ketel Marte.

Nick Ahmed is headed to the disabled list with a fractured hand, so it's not a surprise that Marte is on the way up. The 23-year-old has had a big season in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League, batting .338/.391/.514 with six homers and seven steals for Triple-A Reno. He should play pretty regularly at shortstop for now, with Chris Owings seeing more time in the outfield. Marte is worth a shot in deeper leagues.
