Ryan Hanigan (oblique) won't begin a minor league rehab assignment on Wednesday.

Hanigan has some lingering soreness in his oblique, so the Rays will push his rehab stint back a couple of days. He's still on track to be activated in early August.
Jul 29 - 5:10 PM

Giants optioned 1B Adam Duvall to Triple-A Fresno.

Duvall hit a two-run homer off Cliff Lee in his first game following his recall from Triple-A, but struggled after that. He was removed from the 25-man roster on Tuesday to open up a spot for Travis Ishikawa.
Jul 29 - 5:08 PM

Giants designated INF Tony Abreu for assignment.

Abreu was only up in the majors for a couple of days and didn't manage a hit in four plate appearances.
Jul 29 - 5:06 PM

Josh Rutledge is out of the Rockies' starting lineup again on Tuesday against the Cubs.

Rutledge is battling an upper respiratory infection and could need a few more days off. The infielder has performed well as Troy Tulowitzki's (hip) fill-in at shortstop but obviously needs to be benched for now in fantasy leagues that allow for daily lineup changes.
Jul 29 - 5:01 PM

Giants purchased the contract of 1B Travis Ishikawa from Triple-A Fresno.

Ishikawa will help out at first base with Brandon Belt still recovering from a concussion. The 30-year-old was batting .271/.349/.446 with 11 homers and 45 RBI in 71 games at Fresno but is doubtful to hold fantasy value.
Jul 29 - 4:58 PM

Giants recalled OF Juan Perez from Triple-A Fresno.

Perez has posted a weak .156/.208/.267 batting line in 50 plate appearances this season for San Francisco. The 27-year-old outfielder carries no fantasy relevance.
Jul 29 - 4:56 PM

Rockies activated 1B Justin Morneau from the 15-day disabled list.

Morneau missed the minimum amount of time with a mild neck strain. The veteran first baseman boasts a .312/.345/.502 batting line with 13 home runs and 60 RBI in 89 games this season. It's been a resurgent year for Morneau, and the strong production should continue down the stretch (with the help of Coors Field).
Jul 29 - 4:48 PM

Nick Tepesch has been pushed back in the rotation.

Meaning he won't make his scheduled start in the Rangers' three-game series against the Indians. Tepesch left his outing Saturday against the A's with soreness in his left knee. It's not a major concern.
