Zack Cozart is not in the Reds' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Cubs.

This appears to be a routine breather for Cozart, who slugged a two-run homer in Wednesday's loss at Wrigley Field. Jose Peraza will start at shortstop and bat second Thursday versus Cubs left-hander Jon Lester.

Diamondbacks activated OF David Peralta from the paternity leave list.

Peralta is starting in right field and batting leadoff on Thursday afternoon against the Astros after missing a couple of games following the birth of his daughter. The 30-year-old outfielder is slashing .303/.359/.470 in 383 at-bats this season.
Aug 17 - 11:17 AM

Twins activated LHP Glen Perkins from the 60-day disabled list.

Perkins will finally make his return to the Minnesota bullpen on Thursday, despite posting a 6.14 ERA in eight rehab appearances between the Gulf Coast League, High-A Fort Myers, and Double-A Chattanooga. The veteran left-hander has been sidelined by shoulder problems since April 2016. He'll probably operate in a lower-leverage role down the stretch.
Aug 17 - 10:59 AM

Twins placed LHP Dietrich Enns on the 10-day disabled list with a left shoulder strain.

Enns was lined up to start Saturday against the Diamondbacks, but that obviously won't happen now. The 26-year-old left-hander has allowed four runs -- three earned -- on seven hits and one walk over four innings this season with Minnesota.
Aug 17 - 10:57 AM

Rangers released RHP Jaye Chapman.

Chapman posted an ugly 6.63 ERA and 1.72 WHIP over 36 2/3 innings this summer in the Rangers' minor league system. The 30-year-old right-hander hasn't made an appearance in a major league game since back in 2012.
Aug 17 - 9:27 AM

Seung Hwan Oh worked a scoreless seventh inning Wednesday night against the Red Sox.

Oh needed just 10 total pitches to retire Jackie Bradley, Eduardo Nunez, and Mookie Betts. The South Korean right-hander boasts a 0.82 ERA and 13/0 K/BB ratio over his last 12 appearances and could take back over as the Cardinals' primary closer if Trevor Rosenthal (arm) lands on the disabled list. Tyler Lyons and John Brebbia might also enter the ninth-inning mix.
Aug 17 - 9:25 AM

Rangers released LHP Bobby LaFromboise.

LaFromboise had logged just three innings this season with the Rangers' rookie-level Arizona League team. The 31-year-old left-hander hasn't appeared in a major league game since 2015.
Aug 17 - 9:22 AM

Trevor Rosenthal will be examined by the Cardinals' medical staff for renewed tightness in his right arm.

Rosenthal was pulled from a save chance Wednesday night against the Red Sox after giving up a homer and a walk to the first two batters he faced. His fastball velocity was way down and Cardinals manager Mike Matheny noted in his postgame press conference that "something didn't look right." This comes with frustrating timing, as Rosenthal had recaptured ninth-inning duties in St. Louis this summer alongside a career-best strikeout rate. Seung Hwan Oh, Tyler Lyons, and John Brebbia could all see saves down the stretch if Rosenthal is badly injured. Oh is probably the best fantasy stash of the group.
