White Sox signed RHP Jeff Gray to a minor league contract.

Gray had a rough go of it with the Twins in 2012, compiling a 5.71 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 26/22 K/BB ratio over 52 innings of work. He may have a chance to compete for a job in the White Sox bullpen, but remains irrelevant for fantasy purposes.

An MRI on Carter Capps' right elbow showed no major damage and he's expected to resume throwing in 3-4 days.

Capps was placed on the disabled list Monday with a strained pitching elbow, but the Marlins think he'll be ready to return when his 15 days are up. It wouldn't be a surprise if it ultimately takes a bit longer than that, but obviously this is good news. Capps has been an elite reliever this season, posting a 1.16 ERA and 58/7 K/BB ratio over 31 innings.

Steven Matz (lat) threw on flat ground Monday.

It's the first time he's done any throwing since he was diagnosed with a partially torn left lat muscle nearly four weeks ago. Obviously, the Mets will proceed cautiously with Matz, building him back up slowly. There's no timetable for his return, but Monday was a nice step.

Josh Donaldson went 2-for-4 with a home run Monday in the Blue Jays' victory over the Twins.

Donaldson doubled in the bottom of the first inning and and then cranked a two-run shot off Twins starter Ervin Santana in the bottom of the fifth. The 29-year-old third baseman is sporting a tremendous .916 OPS with 27 home runs and 77 RBI in 105 games this season for the Blue Jays, who are now tied with Minnesota for the second American League Wild Card spot.

David Price fired eight innings of one-run ball Monday in the Blue Jays' 5-1 defeat of the Twins.

It was Price's first start with the Jays and he was absolutely terrific in front of a sellout crowd at Rogers Centre. Minnesota managed just three hits and Price struck out 11 batters before leaving to a standing ovation after the top of the eighth. The only run he gave up was on a second-inning solo homer by Torii Hunter. Price will try for more of the same this weekend at Yankee Stadium.

A.J. Pollock (hamstring) is back in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup Monday versus the Nationals.

Pollock was given a few days off this weekend with a minor hamstring injury. The 27-year-old outfielder is batting .305/.361/.465 with 11 home runs and 23 stolen bases in 100 games this season for the Diamondbacks. He's one of the most underrated players in baseball.

Kris Bryant (head) is in the Cubs' starting lineup on Monday night against the Pirates.

Bryant made an early exit from Sunday's series finale against the Brewers after experiencing some lightheadedness. A concussion was ruled out after testing.
Aug 3 - 3:33 PM

Giants placed 2B Joe Panik on the 15-day disabled list with lower back inflammation.

Panik admitted after Sunday's game that he's been bothered by back stiffness for the past couple of weeks. Hopefully a bit of time off will do the trick for the 24-year-old, who's enjoying a breakout 2015 season. Ehire Adrianza and callup Kelby Tomlinson figure to share playing time at second base while Panik is sidelined.
Aug 3 - 3:27 PM

Athletics claimed INF/OF Danny VAlencia off waivers from the Blue Jays.

Valencia was designated for assignment by Toronto in a somewhat surprising move after the July 31 trade deadline. He's having a very good season and drew interest from a range of teams (including the White Sox, Rangers, and Orioles) on the waiver wire. The 30-year-old probably isn't going to carry a ton of fantasy value in Oakland.
Aug 3 - 3:06 PM

A.J. Burnett has been diagnosed with a strained flexor tendon in his right arm.

The veteran right-hander was sent for an MRI on Monday after complaining of inflammation in his pitching elbow during his last start July 31 against the Reds. There was some concern about ligament damage, but Monday's MRI showed his UCL is intact. Burnett will undergo treatment instead of surgery and is hoping to return to the Pirates later this year. J.A. Happ has taken over the rotation vacancy in Pittsburgh.

Rays purchased the contract of 1B/3B Richie Shaffer from Triple-A Durham.

Shaffer has hit .265/.359/595 with 16 home runs in 55 games this season at the Triple-A level. He was the 25th overall pick in the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft and could slide his way into semi-regular playing time if things go well out of the gate. The 24-year-old should be on fantasy watch lists.
Aug 3 - 2:30 PM

Rays optioned LHP Matt Moore to Triple-A Durham.

Moore went 1-3 with an 8.78 ERA in six starts after returning July 2 from Tommy John surgery. The 26-year-old southpaw clearly needs to build more arm strength and the Rays want him to do it as a starter in the minors rather than in the bullpen as a mop-up man. Tampa Bay has some upcoming off days and will roll with a four-man rotation for the time being.
