Latest Headlines

Paul Janish is expected to require offseason surgery to repair his dislocated left shoulder.

Janish injured the shoulder last Tuesday. He's not expected back before the end of the regular season, but the Braves hope he'll be ready for the NLDS.

Edwin Encarnacion is being bothered by leg discomfort.

There aren't any specifics available at this time. Encarnacion was limited to pinch-hitting duties in the first half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals and is he out of the starting lineup for the nightcap. We'd expect the Blue Jays to have an update soon.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Jorge Soler is getting his ankle checked out by a doctor.

Maddon did not rule out a 15-day disabled list stint for Soler, who landed awkwardly running to first base on Monday night. Soler is out of the Cubs' starting lineup on Tuesday, with Junior Lake handling right field and batting cleanup. Kris Bryant is playing left field.

Mariners recalled LHP Mike Montgomery from Triple-A Tacoma.

Montgomery will make his major league debut Tuesday at home against the Yankees and could be up for an extended period if the outing goes well. The 25-year-old left-hander has lost his top-prospect status, but he's put up a decent 3.74 ERA and 47/15 K/BB ratio in 53 innings this season at the Triple-A level. There may be some value here for deep mixed-leaguers.

Scott Kazmir (shoulder) has been cleared to return to the A's rotation Friday in Boston.

Kazmir made it through a 30-pitch bullpen session Sunday without issue and he said he felt "great" after a followup game of catch Tuesday. The left-hander had to make an early exit from his start last Wednesday against the Tigers after experiencing shoulder tightness, but an MRI taken last Thursday showed no major issues.

Khris Davis underwent scheduled surgery Tuesday to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee.

Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash said the surgery "went well" and guessed that Davis would only miss 4-6 weeks. Gerardo Parra will serve as the primary left fielder for Milwaukee until early-to-mid July.
Jun 2 - 4:55 PM

Denard Span (knee) is not in the lineup for the second half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays.

Span also sat out the first game. He made an early exit from Sunday's series finale against the Reds after experiencing renewed discomfort in his right knee and apparently hasn't felt much improvement. But an MRI showed no structural damage, so Span should be able to avoid another disabled list stint. Michael Taylor is playing center field on Tuesday night.
Jun 2 - 4:52 PM

Jose Abreu (finger) is not in the White Sox starting lineup Tuesday night against the Rangers.

Abreu hasn't played since leaving Friday's game against the Astros with irritation in his right index finger. It's something that has bothered Abreu off and on over the first two months of the 2015 regular season. He'll aim to return to action on Wednesday.
Jun 2 - 4:44 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Tuesday that J.J. Hardy is getting an MRI on his left oblique.

It sounds like Hardy may have a strained oblique, which would put him back on the disabled list. The 32-year-old has played in only 23 games this season for Baltimore. Ryan Flaherty is at shortstop on Tuesday night.
Jun 2 - 4:29 PM

Joey Gallo is batting sixth in his major league debut Tuesday night against the White Sox.

That seems like a pretty appropriate spot in the Rangers' lineup for the 21-year-old slugger. Gallo was called up from Double-A Frisco on Tuesday morning to handle third base while Adrian Beltre (thumb) is on the shelf and he's worth a shot in most mixed fantasy leagues for his incredible raw power.
Jun 2 - 4:12 PM

Kris Bryant will make his first career start in left field Tuesday.

Bryant made one start in center field earlier this season and has played three innings in left field, but this will be his first career start there. It's likely just a temporary thing, as Jorge Soler is out of Tuesday's lineup with a sore ankle. Junior Lake is filling in for Soler in right field. Meanwhile, Jonathan Herrera will play third.
Jun 2 - 4:07 PM

Josh Hamilton is out of the Rangers' starting lineup Tuesday due to tightness in his left hamstring.

It sounds like the kind of routine soreness that comes with an extended absence from live baseball games. Hamilton has registered a 1.021 OPS in 22 at-bats since rejoining the Rangers. Consider him day-to-day.
