Oswaldo Arcia is not with the Twins on Tuesday night due the birth of his son.

Arcia is expected to return on Wednesday, so the Twins won't bother putting him on paternity leave.
Jul 29 - 5:35 PM

Ricky Nolasco (elbow) threw a successful bullpen session on Wednesday afternoon.

Nolasco has another bullpen session scheduled for Thursday and will probably throw another few after that before being cleared for a minor league rehab start. The right-hander has been out since July 7 with an elbow injury. He's on track to return in mid-August.
Jul 29 - 5:27 PM

Matt Cain has scheduled a visit with Dr. James Andrews.

That's usually not good news. Cain has failed to make any progress in his rehabilitation from right elbow inflammation and may now be facing surgery. The right-hander could be done for the year no matter what.
Jul 29 - 5:15 PM

Ryan Hanigan (oblique) won't begin a minor league rehab assignment on Wednesday.

Hanigan has some lingering soreness in his oblique, so the Rays will push his rehab stint back a couple of days. He's still on track to be activated in early August. The catcher has been on the shelf since July 9.
Jul 29 - 5:10 PM

Giants optioned 1B Adam Duvall to Triple-A Fresno.

Duvall hit a two-run homer off Cliff Lee in his first game following his recall from Triple-A, but struggled after that. He was removed from the 25-man roster on Tuesday to open up a spot for Travis Ishikawa.
Jul 29 - 5:08 PM

Giants designated INF Tony Abreu for assignment.

Abreu was only up in the majors for a couple of days and didn't manage a hit in four plate appearances.
Jul 29 - 5:06 PM

Josh Rutledge is out of the Rockies' starting lineup again on Tuesday against the Cubs.

Rutledge is battling an upper respiratory infection and could need a few more days off. The infielder has performed well as Troy Tulowitzki's (hip) fill-in at shortstop but obviously needs to be benched for now in fantasy leagues that allow for daily lineup changes.
Jul 29 - 5:01 PM

Giants purchased the contract of 1B Travis Ishikawa from Triple-A Fresno.

Ishikawa will help out at first base with Brandon Belt still recovering from a concussion. The 30-year-old was batting .271/.349/.446 with 11 homers and 45 RBI in 71 games at Fresno but is doubtful to hold fantasy value.
