Denard Span left Monday's game against the Reds with an undisclosed injury.

Span has dealt with back issues recently and it's possible they cropped up again. It could also be the Nationals being proactive with the wet conditions in D.C. The Nats should have an update on Span shortly.

Cory Luebke will be examined in San Diego on Tuesday after feeling discomfort in his left elbow in his last rehab start.

Well, that's not good. Luebke, of course, is making his way back from a second Tommy John surgery. The left-hander has allowed three runs over seven innings across in first seven rehab appearances.
Jul 6 - 8:08 PM

Ricky Nolasco will undergo surgery on his right ankle on Monday.

Nolasco first hurt his ankle back in late May and attempts to rehab it proved unsuccessful. There's no timetable for his return, but you'd have to think there's a good chance his season is over. If that's the case, Nolasco will have posted a 5.40 ERA over just 34 starts in his first two seasons with the Twins after signing a four-year, $49 million contract.
Jul 6 - 8:02 PM

Albert Pujols will start at first base for the American League in next week's All-Star Game in place of the injured Miguel Cabrera (calf).

And deservedly so in what has been a big bounce-back season for the future Hall of Famer. The rest of AL reserves will be Brock Holt, Jose Iglesias, Jason Kipnis, Manny Machado, Mark Teixeira, Russell Martin, Stephen Vogt, Jose Bautista, Adam Jones, J.D. Martinez and Prince Fielder. Xander Bogaerts, Yoenis Cespedes, Brian Dozier, Brett Gardner and Mike Moustakas are the Final Vote candidates.
Jul 6 - 7:52 PM

Chris Sale was among the American League pitchers selected to next week's All-Star Game.

And he's one of the candidates to start the game in Cincinnati. Other starters joining Sale on the AL club will be Chris Archer, Sonny Gray, Felix Hernandez, Dallas Keuchel and David Price. The AL relievers will be Dellin Betances, Brad Boxberger, Zach Britton, Wade Davis, Kelvin Herrera, Darren O'Day and Glen Perkins.
Jul 6 - 7:38 PM

Max Scherzer was among the pitchers named to next week's National League All-Star Game.

Scherzer will be a candidate to start if the Nationals decide to not start him on Sunday. The starters joining Scherzer on the NL squad will be Madison Bumgarner, A.J. Burnett, Gerrit Cole, Jacob deGrom, Zack Greinke, Shelby Miller and Michael Wacha. The NL relievers are Aroldis Chapman, Mark Melancon, Jonathan Papelbon, Francisco Rodriguez and Trevor Rosenthal. Johnny Cueto, Jeurys Familia, Clayton Kershaw, Carlos Martinez and Troy Tulowitzki are the Final Vote candidates.
Jul 6 - 7:33 PM

Matt Andriese will be recalled to start the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Royals.

The Rays have elected to skip Alex Colome in favor of Andriese. The young righty holds a 3.24 ERA over 41 2/3 innings for the Rays this season.
Jul 6 - 7:27 PM

Monday's game between the Rays and Royals was postponed due to rain.

They'll play a split doubleheader on Tuesday. Edinson Volquez, who had been scheduled for Monday, will be pushed back a day to start during the double-dip. Alex Colome will be skipped by the Rays.
