Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Sunday that a doctor told him that Mark Ellis' left leg might have needed amputation if they had waited four or five more hours to make a cut to relieve pressure.

Scary stuff. Ellis underwent a fasciotomy for a serious condition that was discovered earlier Saturday. He will miss at least six weeks of game action, which is small potatoes compared to what Mattingly was informed. Justin Sellers and Elian Herrera will likely split time at second base for now.

Todd Frazier hit his first home run in a Yankees uniform as part of Wednesday's 9-5 defeat of the Reds.

Frazier took Tony Cingrani deep to left in the Yankees' five-run bottom of the seventh inning. He also singled in the bottom of the third, finishing 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored. Frazier is 5-for-21 (.238) since being acquired from the White Sox last Wednesday.

George Springer (quad) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies.

Springer came down with minor discomfort in his left quad on Monday. He sat on Tuesday and will sit again on Wednesday as the Astros look to give him a little recovery space. Derek Fisher is manning center in his place and hitting second, while Jose Altuve is batting in Springer's typical leadoff spot.

Rockies placed RHP Greg Holland on the paternity leave list.

Holland will be away from the club for the next few days to welcome a child with his wife Lacey. Rockies manager Bud Black will probably play the matchups if a save opportunity arises while Holland is gone.

Brewers recalled OF Lewis Brinson from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Brinson is starting in center field and batting seventh Wednesday night against Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez. The 23-year-old top prospect struggled in his first taste of major league action last month, but he's capable of much better results down the stretch for a Brewers team with designs on making the postseason. Brinson should start against most left-handers and some righties.

Alex Cobb fired seven innings of one-run ball Wednesday in the Rays' 5-1 victory over the Orioles.

Cobb allowed just one walk and four hits while racking up six strikeouts in the easy-looking 94-pitch effort. The one run he gave up came on a solo homer by Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop in the top of the fourth inning. Cobb has run into a couple of rough patches this season, but he owns a cool 3.46 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 90/34 K/BB ratio in 138 innings overall and he's been especially sharp over his last four outings. A road test against the first-place Astros is up next.

Phillies activated OF Aaron Altherr from the 10-day disabled list.

Altherr missed exactly 10 days with a strained right hamstring. The 26-year-old outfielder returns to an impressive .288/.359/.539 batting line with 14 home runs, 44 RBI, five stolen bases, and 40 runs scored in 79 games.

Mookie Betts is out of the Red Sox starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Mariners.

It's a rare day off for the 24-year-old outfielder, who went 0-for-6 with two strikeouts in Tuesday night's extra-innings loss at Safeco Field. Brock Holt is in right and batting leadoff Wednesday versus M's right-hander Andrew Moore.
Jul 26 - 1:51 PM

Robinson Cano is getting the day off Wednesday.

Danny Espinosa will start at second base and bat ninth for the Mariners against Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale. It appears to be routine rest for Cano.
Jul 26 - 1:38 PM

David Peralta (knee) is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Braves.

Peralta fouled a ball off his left knee in the sixth inning Tuesday, though it doesn't seem to be anything too serious. Gregor Blanco will play left field and bat leadoff in the 3:40 p.m. ET start versus Braves right-hander Aaron Blair.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Cubs are "among several clubs" to inquire on Mets right-hander Seth Lugo.

It would probably take a big-time prospect or two to pluck Lugo away from New York, as the 27-year-old boasts a 3.32 ERA over his first 116 2/3 major league innings and is under contractual control through 2022. But perhaps the 47-51 Mets will look to sell high on a guy who's had recent elbow problems. Crasnick says the Cubs "love his spin rate and think he has breakout potential."

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Cubs, Red Sox, Rockies, Indians, Pirates, Orioles, White Sox, Tigers, Athletics, and Blue Jays are the 10 teams on Yu Darvish's no-trade list.

Meaning, of course, that he can veto a deal to any of those 10 clubs. The big notable here is the presence of the Cubs, as they have expressed serious interest, but Darvish might not be against a move to the defending World Series champs and the DH-less National League. The 30-year-old impending free agent holds a 3.44 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 143/43 K/BB ratio in 133 1/3 innings (21 starts) this season with Texas.
