Yankees claimed RHP David Herndon off waivers from the Blue Jays.

Toronto had claimed Herndon off waivers from the Phillies, but he was removed from the 40-man roster to make room for Scott Maine. Herndon will remain sidelined until June as he recovers from Tommy John surgery. The 27-year-old right-hander owns a career 3.85 ERA and 1.48 WHIP over 117 career innings at the big league level.

R.A. Dickey assisted in Sunday's defeat of the Royals by tossing seven scoreless innings, earning his sixth win of the season.

Dickey limited the Royals to two hits and two walks while striking out six. Things escalated after he left as there was a benches-clearing incident between the two teams, spurred by teammate and reliever Aaron Sanchez. At any rate, Dickey lowered his ERA to 4.06 and owns a 1.24 WHIP with a 90/49 K/BB ratio in 144 innings. He's held the opposition to two or fewer runs in five consecutive starts, a trend he'll hope to continue over the weekend at Yankee Stadium.

Adeiny Hechavarria ended Sunday's 5-2 win over the Padres with a walk-off three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Padres reliever Brandon Maurer was his own worst enemy on Sunday, walking two in the ninth inning before serving up the three-run homer with one out. The homer was Hechavarria's fifth of the season. He's hitting .279/.311/.375 with the five taters and 42 RBI. Most of that production came in April and he's cooled off after a hot start.

Charlie Morton got the win on Sunday after delivering seven scoreless innings against the Reds.

Morton scattered five hits, didn't issue a walk, and struck out seven in the effort, which featured both benches emptying. The right-hander needed the start, as he had struggled in his previous three outings. He's currently sitting on a 4.19 ERA, a 1.28 WHIP, and a 48/24 K/BB ratio over 77 1/3 innings. Morton starts at home against the Dodgers next.

Jose Fernandez was almost unhittable in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Padres, striking out 10 and throwing six innings of shutout baseball.

Fernandez allowed just four hits. The only one that went for extra bases was an Alexi Amarista triple. Amarista would not come around to score, as Fernandez was having none of that. The 10 strikeouts were one off of his season high, which he set two starts ago against the Diamondbacks. Despite Sunday's brilliance, he came away with a no-decision, as the Marlins wouldn't seal the win until the bottom of the ninth inning. Since returning from the disabled list in early July, Fernandez is 5-0 with a 2.13 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 47/9 K/BB ratio across 38 innings. He'll take to the road against the Braves as he tries to keep this run going.

Kris Bryant left Sunday's game against the Brewers with an apparent injury to his head/neck area.

Bryant injured himself on a head-first slide into second base. He was able to walk off the field under his own power and looked to be OK, so perhaps the Cubs were just being cautious here. They should offer more on the third baseman's status later Sunday.

The Indians are considering placing Jason Kipnis (shoulder) on the disabled list.

Kipnis is not playing Sunday after being limited to designated hitter duty of late because of soreness in his right shoulder. The results of an MRI he had Sunday haven't been revealed, but it's evidently bad enough that the club thinks the second baseman could need at least a couple weeks off. Manager Terry Francona said he would talk things over with the medical staff and general manager Chris Antonetti before a decision is made.
Aug 2 - 2:08 PM

Joe Panik is not in Sunday's lineup due to nagging back stiffness.

Panik played the last two days after missing two games with a stiff back, but now he's on the bench again. Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that the infielder should be available off the bench, but he doesn't expect to start him for a few days. Ehire Adrianza will get another start at second base Sunday.

Chase Utley (ankle) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday.

Utley has been ramping up baseball activities since the All-Star break and is now ready to test things out in game action. He's hitting just .179/.257/.275 this season but reportedly discovered a mechanical flaw in his swing that he thinks was caused by his nagging ankle injury. Utley could be an August trade candidate if he turns things around at the plate.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle writes that it's possible Jesse Hahn (forearm) "will remain shut down."

The A's said in mid-July that Hahn, who is battling right forearm inflammation, would be shut down for at least a month. Given that they're out of playoff contention, it's possible they'll play it safe and just shut the righty down for the rest of the season. Forearm injuries often wind up leading to Tommy John surgery, and Hahn has already had the operation once.

Giancarlo Stanton admitted Saturday that his recovery from hamate bone surgery is "definitely slower" than expected.

Stanton resumed hitting off a tee recently but conceded that he's still feeling some pain in his left hand. "Getting decent -- the ball's coming off OK," Stanton said. "It's just the pain level of it." The Marlins had been hoping to get the outfielder back sometime in early August, but it sounds like it will be a bit longer. "I have to swing off the tee with no pain first, then we'll go from there," Stanton said. "I don't know when that will be. I'm just doing what I'm supposed to every day."
Aug 2 - 12:00 PM

A.J. Burnett (elbow) will undergo an MRI on Monday.

Burnett admitted that he's had elbow pain off and on for a while and during his last start on Thursday it was "a little more than I expected, a little more than I could tolerate." The right-hander will not have surgery and conceded that it's possible he's thrown his last pitch. "I don't expect it to go away and I don't expect it to get better," he said. J.A. Happ has taken Burnett's spot in the Pirates' rotation.
