Phillies designated RHP Kevin Correia for assignment.

Correia had an ugly 6.56 ERA across five starts with the Phillies. Severino Gonzalez will take his place in the starting rotation.
Jul 7 - 2:20 PM

Jonathan Papelbon reiterated Monday that he would like to be traded to a contender.

"The front office knows where my heart is and where my mind is," said Papelbon, who was named to the National League All-Star team on Monday. "And that’s to be with a contending ball club. The ball is in their court, so to speak." The Cubs and the Blue Jays are among the teams who have been linked to Papelbon in recent weeks. The 34-year-old has a 1.65 ERA and 34/7 K/BB ratio over 32 2/3 innings this season while going 14-for-14 in save chances. He's making $13 million this season and his contract includes a $13 million option for 2016 which automatically vests if he finishes 20 more games. The Phillies would likely have to pick up some of his remaining salary in order to get a deal done.
Jul 7 - 12:40 PM

Joe Blanton will start against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Blanton was originally slated to move to the bullpen with Yordano Ventura coming off the disabled list, but the Royals will need another start from him because of Tuesday's doubleheader. Edinson Volquez will start Sunday.
Jul 7 - 11:46 AM

Yadier Molina is not in the Cardinals' lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

Tony Cruz will start behind the plate. Look for Molina to start the second game.
Jul 7 - 11:43 AM

Cardinals recalled LHP Tyler Lyons from Triple-A Memphis.

Lyons will serve as the 26th man in Tuesday's doubleheader and start against Jake Arrieta in the first game. The 27-year-old has a 5.09 ERA and 28/7 K/BB ratio in 23 innings over five starts with the Cardinals this season. He has pitched really well in his last two chances.
Jul 7 - 11:41 AM

Kolten Wong will bat second in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

Wong has batted sixth in each of the last three games, but he's in the second spot with Matt Carpenter sitting. The 24-year-old has been struggling of late, but he went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, a run scored, and a stolen base on Monday. Tommy Pham is batting leadoff again Tuesday.
Jul 7 - 11:38 AM

Matt Carpenter is not in the starting lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

Mark Reynolds will start at third base while Xavier Scruggs plays first. Carpenter figures to play in the second game.
Jul 7 - 11:34 AM

Cubs recalled RHP Dallas Beeler from Triple-A Iowa.

Beeler will serve as the 26th man in Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals and start the second game. The 26-year-old has a 6.33 ERA and 50/25 K/BB ratio in 58 1/3 innings over 13 starts this season in Triple-A. He's not a fantasy option.
