Alfredo Aceves shut down the Rangers on Tuesday night, notching his 21st save of the season.

He allowed one walk and no hits. At this point, it's beyond reductionist to cite Aceves' season stats. While he's 1-6 with a 3.81 ERA and four blown saves, Aceves continues to be the best option the Red Sox have in the ninth inning. That statement may hold even after Andrew Bailey returns. Aceves has allowed only two earned runs in July after posting ERAs of 2.89 and 3.14, respectively, in May and June. Yes, he was horrific in April. But everyone -- including Boston management -- knows what it's like to have a poor month on the job. Aceves may very well hold onto the closing gig through the end of the year.

Mark Teixeira (shin) is out of the Yankees' starting lineup again on Monday against the Red Sox.

Greg Bird will get another start at first base. Teixeira has barely seen any action over the last two weeks due to a lingering deep bone bruise in his right shin. He's not going to be placed on the disabled list because rosters are expanding on Tuesday.

Manny Machado is getting his first major league start at shortstop on Monday night against the Rays.

He'll also bat leadoff. Machado has made all 419 of his major league starts at third base, but the O's are apparently going to try out some different looks as they play out the string in a disappointing 2015 season.

Michael Foltynewicz has been scratched from his scheduled start Monday due to fever and viral symptoms.

Shelby Miller is going to take the mound instead against the Marlins. He'll be pitching on regular rest because of Thursday's team off day. Foltynewicz, who owns a rough 5.71 ERA in 86 2/3 innings this year, should be ready to rejoin the rotation later in the week.

Christian Yelich (knee, ankle) is out of the Marlins' starting lineup Monday versus the Braves.

Yelich singled as a pinch-hitter on Sunday against the Nationals, but he's still not ready to play a full game. The 23-year-old fouled a ball off his ankle last Wednesday and also has a bruised right knee. Derek Dietrich is in left field for Miami on Monday night.

Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) is out of the Red Sox lineup again on Monday night against the Yankees.

Ramirez missed Boston's entire weekend series against the Mets with fatigue in his left shoulder. He's been bothered by several injuries throughout 2015 but has yet to spend a day on the disabled list. It's been a source of frustration for fantasy owners, and it's not clear how long this current absence is going to last.

David Robertson was claimed off revocable waivers by the Yankees, but the White Sox have pulled him back.

It doesn't sound like the possibility of a trade was ever taken seriously on either side. Chicago is looking to compete in 2016 and Robertson has been very good in his first season as the team's closer. The 30-year-old right-hander signed a four-year, $46 million free agent contract with the White Sox over the winter after saving 39 games for the Yankees in 2014.

Cardinals activated RHP Trevor Rosenthal from the paternity leave list.

Rosenthal missed the Cardinals' weekend series in San Francisco to welcome a new baby girl. The 25-year-old All-Star closer will be back in the St. Louis bullpen for Monday night's series opener against the Nationals at Busch Stadium. He has a 1.52 ERA and 41 saves so far this season for the first-place Cards.

David Freese (finger) will join the Angels on Monday in Oakland and could be activated from the disabled list.

Freese has been playing in rehab games with Triple-A Salt Lake for the past week with no lingering discomfort in his right index finger. He suffered a non-displaced fracture of that finger back in late July. Angels third basemen have hit a combined .183 with two homers in 36 games with Freese on the shelf, so he should return to a starting gig.

Jake Arrieta made history on Sunday night in Los Angeles, pitching the first no-hitter of his big league career, striking out a season-high 12 over nine masterful innings against the Dodgers.

Arrieta needed 116 pitches to complete his masterpiece, striking out the side in the ninth inning to put an exclamation point on it. The Dodgers had just two base runners all night, one when Kike Hernandez reached on an error in the third, and the other when Jimmy Rollins walked in the sixth. It was the first no-hitter by a Cubs hurler since Carlos Zambrano accomplished the feat in 2008. Arrieta's gem was the sixth no-hitter in Major League Baseball this season, most recently done by Mike Fiers just nine days ago against these very same Dodgers. Arrieta has been unbelievable since mid-June, compiling a 1.07 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 101/23 K/BB ratio over 101 innings in his last 14 starts. He'll look to continue his dominance of the National League on Saturday when he takes on the Diamondbacks at home.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Blue Jays will name Mark Shapiro as their team president.

The official announcement could come as early as Monday. He'll replace long-time team president Paul Beeston who is retiring at the end of the season. Shapiro, who is currently functioning in the same role for the Indians, plans to keep Alex Anthopoulos as the team's general manager according to sources.

Giancarlo Stanton (hand) has been cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment and is targeting a return to the Marlins lineup on Friday.

Stanton has been on the shelf since late June after fracturing the hamate bone in his left hand. That type of injury has been known to sap a player's power in the past, so those hoping that he'll immediately return to the player that he was pre-injury may need to curb their optimism.
