Nationals activated RHP Casey Janssen from the 15-day disabled list.

Janssen has been out all season while battling a shoulder issue. He figures to be eased back into things initially but should eventually find himself as one of the main setup men for closer Drew Storen.

Nationals placed LHP Sammy Solis on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 18, with left shoulder inflammation.

Solis has had shoulder issues in the past, so hopefully this isn't anything serious. Casey Janssen (shoulder) has been activated from the DL to take Solis' spot in the bullpen.

Will Smith has been suspended eight games by Major League Baseball for having a foreign substance on his arm during Thursday's game in Atlanta.

It seems like a pretty harsh ruling. Smith has officially appealed the suspension and might be able to get it reduced a bit. He will be allowed to continue pitching in the meantime.

Sportsnet's Shi Davidi reports that the Blue Jays haven't asked the Phillies about Cole Hamels "in months."

The report comes on the heels of a revelation from CBS Sports' Jon Heyman which stated that Hamels would not waive his no-trade clause to go to Toronto. Davidi, though, hears that their inquiry came all the way back during the GM meetings in November. Regardless of when it took place, it appears clear that Hamels isn't going to the Blue Jays.

Athletics purchased the contract of INF Andy Parrino from Triple-A Nashville.

Parrino was batting .273/.369/.432 with four homers for Nashville. He'll serve as a utility infielder for the A's.

Athletics placed RHP Edward Mujica on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured right thumb.

Mujica suffered the injury Thursday when he was hit by a comebacker off the bat of the Rays' Bobby Wilson. It's unclear at this point how long he's expected to be sidelined.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Henderson Alvarez has been pitching through a "90 percent tear" of his right ulnar collateral ligament "for years."

This is the first we've heard about a UCL issue for Alvarez, although he had a brief elbow problem last season and there were whispers when he went on the disabled list last month that he had an elbow injury in addition to a shoulder ailment. There have been some that have pitched through ligament damage in the past, although it's hard to imagine anyone pitching with as much of a tear that Alvarez apparently has. It certainly makes him a medical red flag moving forward.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Braves inquired on Jonathan Lucroy but were told he was not available.

The Brewers are going to be sellers prior to the trade deadline, but one guy they appear intent on keeping is Lucroy, who is under team control cheaply through 2017. Heyman adds that the Braves have been "disappointed" by the play of Christian Bethancourt, who is batting just .190/.215/.286 and hasn't been as good as expected defensively.

    Things are getting heated in Atlanta. Braves just went Michael Pineda on Will Smith, thrown out for a foreign substance.
  • John Danks 2015 Outlook

    Didn't see a thread him. That means this is a good forum.
  • Ben Paulsen 2015 Outlook

    Last year after Blackmon and Dickerson did their thing... I promised myself that any Rockie with starting job = pick up ...
  • Ryan Howard 2015 Outlook

    Seriously no thread? I know he is ancient but he now has more homers then Votto and Carlos Santana.
