Chris Tillman (back) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Wednesday with Low-A Aberdeen.

Tillman figures to make at least two starts on the farm before the Orioles consider plugging him back into their rotation. The 30-year-old right-hander had a 10.46 ERA and 2.21 WHIP through seven starts this season with Baltimore when he landed on the disabled list May 11 because of a lower back strain.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Tuesday that there is no plan for Chris Davis' return to the starting lineup.

Davis hasn't appeared in a game since last Monday as he continues to work through changes to his swing. Showalter would only say that Davis will not return on Wednesday. The 32-year-old first baseman is batting just .150 with a .454 OPS and 86 strikeouts in 57 games this season for Baltimore.

Richard Bleier underwent surgery for his Grade 3 left lat tear on Tuesday.

Bleier suffered the injury while throwing a pitch on June 13. He's done for the season, but it sounds like the 31-year-old southpaw will be fully healthy for the start of spring training next February. He was sporting a 1.93 ERA in 32 2/3 innings this year with the O's.

Javier Baez (elbow) is starting at second base and batting second in the nightcap of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers.

Baez was a late sub into the early game, so it's no surprise that he is back in the starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Dodgers and left-hander Rich Hill. Baez took a pitch off his left elbow Sunday in the Cubs' series finale at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, but only suffered some minor bruising and swelling.

Ervin Santana (finger) threw a 35-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday.

Santana worked in his entire arsenal and apparently felt good. He'll now advance to facing live hitters on Friday and could begin another minor league rehab assignment soon after. The veteran right-hander has been out all season following a February capsular release (debridement) procedure on his right middle finger.

Rangers recalled RHP Austin Bibens-Dirkx from Triple-A Round Rock.

Bibens-Dirkx will start Wednesday against the Royals in place of Yohander Mendez, who was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday after a violation of team rules. Bibens-Dirkx has a 6.55 ERA and 1.64 WHIP in 11 innings (two starts) this season at the major league level. He's not a good fantasy streaming option, even versus Kansas City.

Rangers optioned RHP Yohander Mendez to Triple-A Round Rock.

Rangers GM Jon Daniels told reporters on a conference call Tuesday that Mendez violated team rules and that this demotion will serve as his punishment. Daniels noted that other players were involved to a lesser degree, but he wouldn't get into any specifics, only noting that it's not something that would need to involve the police or MLB's commissioner's office. Austin Bibens-Dirkx will take Mendez's spot in the Rangers' rotation on Wednesday.

Mike Foltynewicz (triceps) is tentatively scheduled to come off the disabled list Sunday.

Atlanta is lining up Sean Newcomb and Julio Teheran to pitch the first two games of this weekend's series against the Orioles, and the hope is that Foltynewicz will be ready to pitch the finale on Sunday. The 26-year-old right-hander first has to make it through a couple more side sessions. He had a 2.16 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 94/33 K/BB ratio through 79 innings this season with the Braves when he landed on the disabled list June 16, retroactive to June 13, with right triceps tightness.
