Cubs activated LHP Brian Duensing from the bereavement list.

Duensing was away from the Cubs for four days following the death of his grandfather. He will be available out of the bullpen Friday night against the Reds.
Jun 22 - 4:53 PM

Cubs optioned RHP Justin Hancock to Triple-A Iowa.

Hancock holds an impressive 1.50 ERA in 12 innings of relief this season at the MLB level, but the Cubs needed to clear a spot for Brian Duensing, who has been activated from the bereavement list in a corresponding move.
Jun 22 - 4:51 PM

Bradley Zimmer (shoulder) will be shut down from game activity for the next 4-6 weeks at Triple-A Columbus.

Zimmer tweaked his right shoulder while taking batting practice last week. He was given an anti-inflammatory injection and the Indians want him completely healthy before he returns to minor league games. The 25-year-old outfielder was demoted to Columbus on June 5 after batting just .226/.281/.330 over his first 114 plate appearances this season with Cleveland.

Carlos Carrasco (elbow) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session early next week.

Carrasco was placed on the disabled list last Sunday with a right elbow contusion after getting drilled by a comebacker in his start Saturday against the Twins. He has already resumed playing catch and could feasibly return to the Indians' rotation before the end of June, without making a minor league rehab start.
Jun 22 - 4:46 PM

Stephen Strasburg (shoulder) played catch for the second time Friday.

Nationals manager Davey Martinez told reporters after the workout that the inflammation is nearly gone from Strasburg's shoulder, but added that there is no timetable for him to resume throwing off a mound. Strasburg has been on the disabled list since June 10. It's possible -- but obviously not certain -- that he'll be ready to return to Washington's starting rotation before the All-Star break.
Jun 22 - 4:43 PM

Eduardo Escobar (elbow) is out of the Twins' starting lineup Friday versus the Rangers.

Escobar was lifted from Thursday's series finale against the Red Sox after taking a Rick Porcello pitch off his right elbow. He only suffered a contusion and is considered day-to-day. Taylor Motter will start at third base and bat sixth Friday night against Rangers left-hander Mike Minor.
Jun 22 - 4:41 PM

Eddie Rosario (shoulder) is back in the Twins' starting lineup on Friday night against the Rangers.

He'll start in left field and bat second versus left-hander Mike Minor after missing Thursday's series finale against the Red Sox due to minor soreness in his right shoulder. Rosario is slashing .320/.359/.579 with 16 home runs, 46 RBI, six stolen bases, and 52 runs scored in 70 games this season.
Jun 22 - 4:39 PM

Mike Foltynewicz (triceps) is now lined up to return from the disabled list Monday.

Foltynewicz felt good during a bullpen session on Friday, but the Braves want to give Sunday's start against the Orioles to Brandon McCarthy, with Folty handling Monday's series opener versus the Reds. The 26-year-old right-hander had a sharp 2.16 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 94/33 K/BB ratio through 79 innings this season with Atlanta when he landed on the disabled list June 16, retroactive to June 13, with right triceps tightness.
