T.J. House (shoulder) will be shut down for two weeks before resuming a throwing program.

A second opinion confirmed that House is dealing with tendinitis in his left shoulder. The southpaw hasn't appeared in a game in a month and it sounds like it will be a while before he's ready for game action again.

Nick Swisher (knee) is on track to begin a rehab assignment just after the All-Star break.

Swisher ran on the field prior to Saturday's game as he works his way back from inflammation in his surgically-repaired left knee. He's already missed nearly a month and it's unclear how many rehab games he'll require.
Jul 5 - 9:13 AM

Rangers pitching prospect Dillon Tate didn't make a scheduled start for Short-Season Spokane on Saturday due to right shoulder soreness.

It's unclear at this point how serious the ailment is. Tate, who was the No. 4 overall selection in last month's draft, had made one previous appearance for Spokane.

Josh Hamilton could be placed back on the disabled list with a strained groin.

It's being called a groin strain, but Rangers manager Jeff Banister admitted that Hamilton's "whole lower half" has been an issue since he went on the disabled list with a strained hamstring at the end of May. The results of an MRI Saturday haven't been revealed yet, but it appears Hamilton could be shut down again. "Obviously, we’ll see where he is throughout the night," Banister said Saturday. "We’ll continue to try to manage how he feels. This is a guy we’d like to have for an extended period of time. I’m trying my best to figure this whole thing out with him and what is best for Josh."

Ronald Belisario has elected free agency.

Belisario was booted from the Rays' 40-man roster last week after posting a 7.88 ERA over six appearances. He'll be able to find a gig elsewhere, but it will likely be a minor league deal.
Jul 5 - 8:34 AM

In his return from Tommy John surgery, Patrick Corbin pitched five innings of two-run ball and recorded a win over the Rockies on Saturday.

Corbin allowed eight hits, three for extra bases, but he was able to spread them around enough to leave with a lead. It helped a lot that he walked no one. His fastball was consistently in the low-90s, and 56 of his 76 pitches were strikes. Corbin isn't a recommended mixed-league pitcher just yet, but he definitely has the ability. He's well worth the flier in deeper leagues.
Jul 5 - 1:41 AM

A.J. Pollock went 2-for-5 with two RBI and two steals versus the Rockies on Saturday.

Pollock is 18-for-23 stealing bases this year, which is a big reason why he's been an elite fantasy outfielder. He entered the season with 27 steals in 243 games as a major leaguer. His 18 this year have come in 80 games.
Jul 5 - 1:37 AM

D.J. LeMahieu broke out of a slump with a 3-for-4 game Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

LeMahieu hadn't had a multihit game since June 11, even though he's been batting second and usually getting five plate appearances per game. His average, which stood at .351 on June 11, entered tonight at .293, but it's back up to .300 now. He's not a bad option in mixed leagues for as long as he bats second, but he'll probably end up back at the bottom of the order at some point.
