Corey Kluber (ankle) will try to throw a side session on Sunday.

Kluber expects to make his next start, though Cleveland's medical staff is calling him 50/50. The Indians will have a better idea of where he stands after Sunday's side session. The former Cy Young winner left Friday's start against Kansas City with a minor ankle sprain. Consider him day-to-day.

Ryan Madson tried to play catch on Saturday but still felt pain in his sprained index finger.

He was hoping to return when first eligible next week but that seems unlikely now. With Madson on the shelf, Brandon Kintzler will handle setup work ahead of closer Sean Doolittle.

Matt Wieters is not in the Nationals' lineup Saturday against the Padres.

It's just a maintenance day for Wieters, who is in the midst of a 1-for-20 dry spell. Jose Lobaton will start behind the plate and bat eighth Saturday against Padres left-hander Travis Wood.
Aug 19 - 6:27 PM

Daniel Murphy was scratched from the Nationals' lineup Saturday against the Padres.

Though he hasn't been diagnosed with any specific injury, manager Dusty Baker noticed that Murphy hasn't been moving well over the past few games. He'll get the night off to recharge his batteries before returning for Sunday's series finale. Howie Kendrick, who had been slated to start in left field, will shift to second base with Alejandro De Aza in left.
Aug 19 - 6:26 PM

Masahiro Tanaka (shoulder) is expected to start Tuesday against the Tigers.

He got the green light after making it through a 37-pitch bullpen session on Friday. Tanaka landed on the DL with shoulder inflammation last week but is already nearing full strength and won't need to make a rehab start. The Yankees' rotation is finally getting healthy with CC Sabathia (knee) returning to the mound Saturday and Tanaka due back Tuesday.

Aroldis Chapman has been temporarily removed from the closer role.

The move was long overdue as Chapman hasn't looked right in a while. Whether it's his hamstring or simply fatigue from pitching deep into the playoffs last year, the flame-throwing left-hander hasn't been himself in 2017, producing a very un-Chapman-like 4.29 ERA over 38 appearances. Chapman should eventually reclaim his closer status—the Yankees didn't pay $86 million for him to work in middle relief—but right now he's doing more harm than good in the ninth inning. Dellin Betances and David Robertson will split save chances while Chapman works to rebuild his confidence in a lower leverage role.

Yankees optioned LHP Jordan Montgomery to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The Yankees needed to clear a roster spot for today's starter, CC Sabathia. Montgomery has fared reasonably well this year (7-6, 4.00 ERA in 23 starts) but the Yankees want to limit his innings. He'll be back for good when rosters expand next month.
Aug 19 - 5:47 PM

Yankees activated LHP CC Sabathia from the 10-day disabled list.

Jordan Montgomery was sent down to Triple-A in the corresponding move. Sabathia ended up missing just one start with knee inflammation and will take the hill Saturday at Boston. He'll have his work cut out for him with Chris Sale going for the division-leading Red Sox.
