Marlins general manager Mike Hill said Thursday that Jarred Cosart could make his team debut as soon as Friday against the Reds.

It doesn't appear to be set in stone yet, but he would be on five days' rest that day. Jacob Turner is currently slated to start Friday, so he could be moved to the bullpen or to Triple-A.

Ubaldo Jimenez (ankle) will make another rehab start with Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday or Monday.

Jimenez pitched well in his first rehab outing with Short Season-Aberdeen on Tuesday, but he only went 4 2/3 innings and the Orioles want to build his stamina up a bit more. The veteran right-hander should rejoin the rotation late next week.
Jul 31 - 8:15 PM

Chris Davis (illness) remained out of the Orioles' lineup Thursday.

It's the third straight start he's missed due to the flu, though Davis will be available off the bench. He seems likely to be back in the lineup on Friday.
Jul 31 - 8:12 PM

Colby Rasmus was benched Thursday due to tardiness.

Rasmus was apparently consistently late to the park during last weekend's series in New York and showed up well after everyone else on Thursday in Houston. It's not clear at this point if the benching might be a multi-game situation. Blue Jays manager John Gibbons is expected to address the issue shortly.
Jul 31 - 8:05 PM

Cliff Lee left Thursday's start against the Nationals with an apparent elbow injury.

Lee had tossed 2 2/3 scoreless frames but threw a pitch to Denard Span and immediately knew something was wrong. He appeared to gesture towards his elbow after getting to the dugout, so it looks like he aggravated the ailment that sidelined him for two months. The Phillies will provide an update shortly, but obviously this looks like a major setback.
Jul 31 - 7:54 PM

Chris Dickerson left Thursday's game versus the Mariners with an apparent leg injury.

Dickerson tweaked something in the second inning while tracking down a Kendrys Morales double in the second and was removed in the third. He dealt with a hamstring injury earlier this month, so it's possible he aggravated that ailment. The Tribe will update his status shortly.

Oscar Taveras hit a two-run homer Thursday in the Cardinals' 6-2 victory over the Padres.

It was Taveras's first homer since he went deep in his major league debut, and we don't believe it's a coincidence that it came on the day that Allen Craig was traded. Taveras now knows he'll be in the lineup whenever the Cardinals face a righty, and he could start against some lefties as well. He should have mixed-league value the rest of the way.
Jul 31 - 7:16 PM

Shelby Miller pitched six strong innings, allowing two runs and three hits, Thursday in a victory over the Padres.

The runs came on homers from Jedd Gyorko and Will Venable in the second inning. Apart from that, Miller faced just one batter over the minimum, striking out five and walking none. That's two pretty encouraging outings for him since he was restored to the rotation, albeit coming against weak offenses. If he's available in your mixed league and you have an open bench spot, it wouldn't be a bad idea to give him another try.
