Braves signed C Gerald Laird to a two-year contract.

Financial terms aren't known. The deal was reported Thursday and has now become official after Laird passed his physical. The 33-year-old will have to start for the first few weeks of the season while Brian McCann recovers from shoulder surgery before then sliding into a backup role.

Hanley Ramirez (leg) is in the Dodgers' starting lineup Saturday night against the Padres.

Hanley was not on the original lineup card, but he felt good in a pregame workout so manager Don Mattingly gave him the go-ahead. Ramirez suffered a minor left leg injury Friday in the Dodgers' 12th-inning loss.

Omar Infante (shoulder) is back in the Royals' starting lineup Saturday night against the Indians.

Infante had been sidelined since Monday with a lingering right shoulder injury and acknowledged Saturday that he is still experiencing discomfort. But the veteran second baseman wants to play through the pain as the Royals try to reach the playoffs for the first time since 1985. "It’s not going to subside," manager Ned Yost said. "Forget it subsiding. He’s probably at about 80 percent right now, which is good enough to play."

Matt Garza (oblique) has been cleared to rejoin the Brewers' rotation Wednesday versus the Cubs.

Garza, out since August 4 with a left oblique strain, threw all of his pitches in a successful simulated game Friday evening in San Francisco. Jimmy Nelson was optioned to the minors on Saturday afternoon and will return as a reliever when rosters expand, freeing up a rotation spot for Garza.

Coco Crisp is not in the A's lineup Saturday.

Crisp came up sore after crashing into the center field wall Friday while trying to rob Chris Iannetta of a home run. Sam Fuld is leading off and Craig Gentry is playing center on Saturday night against the Angels.
Aug 30 - 5:05 PM

An MRI taken Saturday on Desmond Jennings' left knee showed no major damage.

Jennings is aiming to return to the Rays' starting lineup on Sunday after sitting out Friday and Saturday. The 27-year-old outfielder has 10 homers and 15 stolen bases in 123 games this season for Tampa Bay, but he's registered a disappointing .244/.319/.378 slash line.
Aug 30 - 5:01 PM

Chris Sale picked up his 11th victory of the season on Saturday, striking out 13 in the first game of a doubleheader against the Tigers.

Sale surrendered three runs on six hits and a pair of walks in his seven innings of work. All of the damage against him came in the first inning, where Ian Kinsler belted a solo homer and Victor Martinez added a two-run blast, but Sale settled in nicely afterwards and dominated the rest of the afternoon. Now 11-3 on the season, he'll look to improve upon his outstanding 2.11 ERA and 0.94 WHIP when he does battle against the Indians in Cleveland on Friday.
Aug 30 - 4:37 PM

Red Sox activated SS Xander Bogaerts from the 7-day disabled list.

Bogaerts began exhibiting concussion-like symptoms after taking a Felix Hernandez pitch off his helmet last Friday, so the Red Sox decided to play it safe with their young shortstop. He'll be back in action Saturday night.
Aug 30 - 4:29 PM

George Springer (quad) still isn't able to run at 100 percent effort.

Springer took batting practice earlier this week and has done some other baseball-related activities, but the big hurdle for him will be running the bases and it doesn't sound like he's close to doing that. The dynamic young outfielder said "I hope so" when asked Saturday if he expects to return before the end of the season.
Aug 30 - 4:23 PM

Rangers activated LHP Derek Holland from the 60-day disabled list.

Holland is scheduled to return to the Rangers' starting rotation on Tuesday against the Royals after missing the first five months of the 2014 season due to knee surgery. He wasn't too sharp on his rehab assignment and probably shouldn't be trusted in mixed fantasy leagues right out of the gate.
Aug 30 - 4:18 PM

Rangers designated 1B/OF Mike Carp for assignment.

Carp lasted less than a month with Texas, batting .125 with zero extra-base hits in 46 plate appearances. He had a really good 2013 season but has struggled mightily this year between the Rangers and Red Sox.
Aug 30 - 4:11 PM

Drew Hutchison allowed just one hit over seven scoreless innings in a win over the Yankees on Saturday.

The one hit was a double by Mark Teixeira in the fourth inning. Otherwise, Hutchison dominated by striking out nine and walking two while throwing 64 out of 103 pitches for strikes. He also hit two batters. Amazingly, this is the first time all season that he has back-to-back quality starts. He'll try to keep it going next week when he brings a 4.47 ERA into a start against the Red Sox.
