Nationals purchased the contract of OF Alejandro De Aza from Triple-A Syracuse.

De Aza will give Washington some much-needed outfield depth. The 33-year-old signed a minor league contract with the Nationals in June and was batting .280/.368/.403 with four home runs and two stolen bases in 56 games at Syracuse.
Aug 16 - 10:50 AM

Nationals placed OF Brian Goodwin on the 10-day disabled list with a left groin strain.

The injury comes with bad timing for Goodwin, who had been drawing regular starts in the Nationals' outfield. He owns a cool .811 OPS with 13 home runs and six stolen bases in 74 games this season. Alejandro De Aza has been called up from Triple-A Syracuse in a corresponding 25-man roster move.

Buster Posey is getting the day off Wednesday.

Nick Hundley will start at catcher and bat sixth in the Giants' series finale at Marlins Park. Ryder Jones is at first base and batting seventh.

Cameron Maybin is not in the Angels' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Nationals.

Ben Revere will play left field and hit leadoff in the matinee game against Nats right-hander Tanner Roark. Maybin is batting just .192/.250/.231 since returning from the disabled list August 7.

Albert Pujols is out of the Angels' lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Nationals.

C.J. Cron will start at first base in the series finale at Nationals Park, where there is no DH available. Pujols is slashing just .229/.274/.374 in the sixth year of his 10-year, $250 million agreement with Anaheim.

James Paxton (pectoral) hopes to begin playing catch this weekend.

Paxton remains in shutdown mode with a strained left pectoral muscle, but he told reporters Tuesday that he's feeling much better and he has a check-up exam scheduled for this Friday in Seattle. We should have a clearer picture about his timetable by Saturday. Paxton hit the disabled list on August 11 with a stellar 12-3 record, 2.78 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 138/33 K/BB ratio in 119 2/3 innings this season. The 28-year-old southpaw also missed time in May with a forearm strain.

Jedd Gyorko (knee) finished 1-for-3 in the Cardinals' loss to the Red Sox on Tuesday.

It was his first start since last Friday. Gyorko, who's been working through some right knee discomfort, owns a weak .182/.267/.273 batting line in 26 games since the All-Star break. He batted .300/.364/.519 in the first half of the season.

Shin-Soo Choo went 1-for-5 with an RBI infield single in his return to the Rangers' lineup Tuesday against the Tigers.

Choo was held out of Monday's series opener versus Detroit due to a couple of minor ailments. The veteran outfielder has just one extra-base hit over 50 plate appearances so far in the month of August.
