CSN Chicago's Patrick Mooney reports that the Cubs have had internal discussions about moving third base prospect Kris Bryant to right field.

Bryant is, at best, an adequate defensive third baseman, but the Cubs are content to leave him there for now. However, a position switch to right field could eventually come. "He can do it," general manager Jed Hoyer said of moving Bryant to the outfield. "He played center in college, and he’s played right. He feels good out there. The biggest focus for him right now is he’s working on his defense. He is almost 6-6, and with that the fundamentals of playing third base are more challenging. In the future, I would never say never that we wouldn’t put him out there. But right now, our focus is third."

The Twins are expected to recall Logan Darnell from Triple-A Rochester to start on Saturday versus the White Sox.

Kris Johnson was sent down after Monday's start, so the Twins need another arm for this weekend. Darnell tossed three perfect relief innings earlier this season for Minnesota and holds a 3.43 ERA over 17 Triple-A starts this year. The 25-year-old can be ignored for fantasy purposes.

Cubs recalled LHP Tsuyoshi Wada from Triple-A Iowa.

Wada will start on Wednesday against the Padres. The left-hander fared well in his major league debut prior to the All-Star break, holding the Reds to an unearned run over five innings. He's worth streaming Wednesday in a nice matchup and could carve out some fantasy value in deeper formats.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Tuesday that Matt Lindstrom (foot) might begin a rehab assignment the first week of August.

The Pale Hose had been hoping to get Lindstrom back in their bullpen in early August, but it sounds like it will be a little later than that. Lindstrom has made a quicker-than-expected return from May ankle surgery and could eventually recapture the White Sox' closer job.

David Ross has been dealing with a right foot ailment for most of the season that the Red Sox believe is plantar fasciitis.

Ross was noticeably hobbled while running the bases Tuesday, but the catcher doesn't think the injury will sideline him. "It’s not going to keep me from playing, I don’t think," Ross said. "It’s one of those things that’s going to affect my running a little bit, which is definitely not something manager John (Farrell) is worrying about, my speed to help the team."

L.J. Hoes hit a go-ahead home run in the top of the twelfth inning, finishing a 1-for-5 night in style.

Hoes hit the solo shot against Fernando Abad. He is slashing just .178/.235/.308 on the season, but it's always nice to see random heroics as we enter the dog days of summer.

Jose Altuve went 3-for-6 with three singles in Tuesday's extra-innings victory over the A's.

These days, it feels strange if Jose Altuve doesn't have a multi-hit game. The diminutive second-baseman is slashing .338/.374/.444 atop Houston's lineup. He also has 41 steals, though he was caught stealing in this game for just the fourth time on the year.
Jul 23 - 2:51 AM

Chris Carter went 3-for-5 with two doubles and two RBI in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the A's.

Carter has now blown by the Mendoza Line, as he's up to a .213 average. The two RBI brought him up to 43 on the year. Carter hasn't ever been one to hit for average, but he does have nineteen home runs and a .478 slugging percentage, which tells you that he makes his hits count. Always a hot/cold slugger, Carter's on the scorching side this month, slashing .306/.352/.735 for July.
