Cory Wade has elected free agency.

Wade was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays earlier this month and has decided to test out the market rather than accept an assignment to Triple-A. The 29-year-old right-hander posted a 6.46 ERA and 38/8 K/BB ratio over 39 innings in the majors this past season.

Dodgers placed 1B Cody Bellinger on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to August 20, with a sprained right ankle.

Bellinger suffered the ankle injury on Saturday in Detroit and the first-place Dodgers have wisely decided to give the 22-year-old rising star an extended breather. Bellinger, the heavy favorite for NL Rookie of the Year, is sitting on a .968 OPS and 34 home runs through his first 101 major league games. He should be ready for activation when first eligible at the end of August.

Rangers placed INF/OF Joey Gallo on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Gallo suffered a concussion and a nasal fracture when he collided with teammate Matt Bush on Sunday afternoon. It sounds like the Rangers believe he will be ready for activation when first eligible on August 29. Phil Gosselin has been recalled from Triple-A Round Rock in a corresponding roster move.

Danny Salazar felt stiffness in his right elbow while throwing a side session Tuesday.

That explains why the Indians placed him on the disabled list Tuesday afternoon. Salazar is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Tuesday night and may be in danger of missing the remainder of the 2017 regular season. He had been pitching well since returning to the Indians' rotation in late July, but the 27-year-old right-hander got lit up for six earned runs on 12 hits Sunday in a loss to the Royals.

Dodgers placed LHP Alex Wood on the 10-day disabled list with SC joint inflammation his left shoulder.

Wood missed time earlier this year with the same issue, but he said he plans to return in 10 days during the Dodgers' early-September series against the Padres. The left-hander stands 14-1 with a 2.41 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 127/30 K/BB ratio in 123 1/3 innings this season.

Marcus Semien (wrist) is not in the Athletics' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Orioles.

Semien was lifted from Monday's series opener in Baltimore after irritating the scar tissue in his surgically-repaired right wrist, but the discomfort shouldn't keep him out long. Chad Pinder will start at shortstop and bat seventh Tuesday versus O's right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Even without Semien in the lineup, the A's are still one of the sneakier potential GPP stacks of the night. Semien's absence allows them to slot four left-handed bats into the top six of the order, something that should bode well for them given Ubaldo Jimenez's splits. Jimenez has allowed a whopping 2.78 HR/9 rate (1.23 vs. RHBs) to lefties, and this A's lineup does possess some nice pop against RHP. Focus on the lefties in this lineup, most of which are available at cheap price tags.

Noah Syndergaard (lat) is scheduled to throw batting practice on Wednesday.

It'll be his first time facing live hitters since he suffered a torn lat muscle in late April. Syndergaard appears on track to rejoin the Mets sometime in September, though there's no exact timetable at this point and he figures to be handled with care. New York is 15 games under the .500 mark here on August 22.

Carlos Santana (back) is out of the Indians' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Red Sox.

Santana left Monday's series opener after experiencing tightness in his lower back. Consider him day-to-day. Edwin Encarnacion is starting at first base and Jason Kipnis will DH on Tuesday versus Boston right-hander Doug Fister. Jose Ramirez is at second base with Giovanny Urshela playing third.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: The Indians are right up there as a top overall stack on tonight's slate against Doug Fister, who is allowing a ton of hard contact to lefties while generating very little soft contact. Fister currently owns a putrid 31.4 Hd-Sft% against lefties with a 1.69 HR/9 rate, so there is plenty of appeal in targeting the Indians lefties. Four of the first five bats in the lineup can swing from the left side.

Michael Conforto told reporters Tuesday that his right thumb issue is minor.

It's just some inflammation from his heavy 2017 workload. Conforto won't start Tuesday night against the Diamondbacks, but it sounds like he could be ready to go Wednesday. The 24-year-old outfielder slugged his 27th homer of the year on Monday and boasts a .943 OPS in 2017 games this season. Matt Reynolds will draw a start in his place Tuesday versus Arizona.
Aug 22 - 3:56 PM

Indians placed LHP Andrew Miller on the 10-day disabled list with right knee patella tendinitis.

Miller aggravated his knee injury during an appearance against the Red Sox on Monday night. He missed about two weeks last time and could require a longer absence this time around. More should be known in the coming days.
Aug 22 - 3:26 PM

David Wright (shoulder) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A St. Lucie.

Oh, it's happening. He's set to serve as the designated hitter in his first professional game of the season. Wright has been out all year due to a shoulder impingement, and of course he also has a chronic back condition. It's no sure thing he'll be able to join the Mets down the stretch, but it would at least provide some smiles for Mets fans in what has been a lost year.
Aug 22 - 3:18 PM

Royals activated C Salvador Perez from the 10-day disabled list.

Perez ended up missing a little over two weeks with an intercostal strain. His return should provide a boost to the Royals as they attempt to climb in the AL Wild Card race.
