David Buchanan is expected to be recalled next week to take Cliff Lee's (elbow) spot in the Phillies' rotation.

Buchanan was the most logical candidate and just happened to pitch at Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday. He's posted a 4.40 ERA over 10 starts in the majors this season and can be avoided for fantasy purposes.
Jul 31 - 11:28 PM

Danny Santana led off Thursday's game with a home run and later walked, but the Twins fell to the Royals on Thursday.

Santana greeted Royals starter Ervin Santana coldly, taking him out to right field to begin the ballgame. The outfielder has been productive at the plate since rejoining the team to begin the second half, having hit six extra-base hits in his last 53 plate appearances. Overall, he's slashing .313/.347/.467 with four home runs, 22 RBI, and six stolen bases.

Phillies recalled LHP Cesar Jimenez from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

He's taking Cliff Lee's (elbow) spot on the roster. Jimenez will likely only be up for a few days until the Phillies need a starter.
Jul 31 - 11:24 PM

Kevin Correia turned in a quality outing against the Royals, allowing two runs (one earned) in six innings, but went home with a no-decision as the Twins lost on Thursday.

Last Friday's outing aside, Correia has made great strides lowering his ERA and that continued on Thursday. The right-hander allowed only five hits without issuing a walk while striking out four. His ERA now sits at 4.89 along with a 1.48 WHIP and a 58/31 K/BB ratio. Correia will face the Padres at home next Wednesday.

Phillies placed LHP Cliff Lee on the 15-day disabled list with a left flexor pronator strain.

It's an aggravation of the injury that sidelined him for two months earlier this season. Lee might require surgery this time around, though that won't be known until he's examined Saturday. Either way, he's likely done for the season. The veteran lefty is owed approximately $45.8 million through the end of next year.
Jul 31 - 11:22 PM

Yordano Ventura navigated his way through seven innings, yielding only two runs (one earned) en route to his eighth win of the season on Thursday against the Twins.

As he has been at several points throughout the season, Ventura was a bit sloppy with his control, but was otherwise strong. The Twins drew three walks but managed only five hits -- including a solo home run from Danny Santana -- while Santana struck out seven. The 23-year-old has had a fine rookie campaign, sporting a 3.50 ERA with a 102/39 K/BB ratio. Ventura will toe the rubber in Arizona against the Diamondbacks next week.
Jul 31 - 11:21 PM

Casey Janssen worked around a two-out walk in the ninth inning, helping the Blue Jays defeat the Astros by a 6-5 margin on Thursday.

Janssen is happy to see July end, as he ends the month with a 5.56 ERA. He had a relatively easy ninth inning on Thursday, though. He has blown only two saves since making his season debut on May 12 and owns a 2.86 ERA with a 16/3 K/BB ratio.
Jul 31 - 11:16 PM

Eric Hosmer could miss the next month of action with a stress fracture in his right hand.

Hosmer was hit in the hand by a pitch over a week ago and never fully recovered, necessitating more tests. Unfortunately, an X-ray revealed the bad news. Hosmer has batted a disappointing .267/.312/.377 this season, but he's heated up this month. The Royals will now likely be forced to play Billy Butler at first base.
