Athletics designated C George Kottaras for assignment.

The move was made in order to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for John Jaso. Kottaras is a viable backup, at the very least, and seems likely to be traded. He's slated to make $1 million in 2013 after batting .211/.351/.415 with nine homers last year.

Jacob deGrom will return to the Mets' rotation Friday against the Nationals.

DeGrom has struggled over his last two starts and will be skipped in the rotation on Monday in order to give him a bit of a breather. His return will push Noah Syndergaard's next start back to Saturday.

Neil Walker (back) is out of the Mets' lineup again Monday against the Marlins.

Walker has now missed consecutive games due to a back injury from earlier this month. He's been red-hot for a while now, so his absence really hurts. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Aug 29 - 4:08 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) is out of Monday's lineup against the Marlins.

Cabrera exited Sunday's game after aggravating a left knee injury in a collision at first base. It's unclear when the NL Player of the Week will be ready to return to action.
Aug 29 - 4:07 PM

Yoenis Cespedes (quad) is back in the Mets' lineup Monday against the Marlins.

Cespedes was held out of Sunday's lineup due to a mild aggravation of his recent quad injury, but he's going to try to give it a go on Monday. The Mets might have to try to manage it the rest of the way.
Aug 29 - 4:05 PM

Adam Eaton (forearm) is in the White Sox starting lineup Monday night against the Tigers.

Eaton left Sunday's series finale against the Mariners after taking a Taijuan Walker pitch off his forearm in the fourth inning. X-rays obviously turned up negative.

Indians placed RHP Danny Salazar on the paternity leave list.

He'll be back before his next turn in the rotation Saturday against the Marlins. Salazar showed a lot of positive signs Sunday afternoon against the Rangers, striking out 10 batters while yielding two runs on five hits over 5 2/3 innings. Shawn Armstrong was called up from Triple-A Columbus in a corresponding roster move.
Aug 29 - 3:27 PM

Adam Jones (hamstring) remains absent from the Orioles' starting lineup on Monday.

Jones told reporters Monday afternoon that his left hamstring feels much better, but he'll take at least one more day of treatment and rest. He tweaked the hamstring last Thursday and then reaggravated it Friday.
Aug 29 - 3:24 PM

Dustin Pedroia (personal) remains out of the Red Sox lineup Monday night against the Rays.

Pedroia was excused from the Red Sox on Sunday morning to deal with a private family matter. It's not clear when he might return. Brock Holt is starting at second base and batting leadoff Monday versus righty Matt Andriese.
Aug 29 - 3:13 PM

Steven Matz (shoulder) is scheduled to return to the Mets' rotation Thursday versus the Marlins.

Matz made it through another successful throwing session on Sunday and woke up Monday with no abnormal discomfort, so it seems like all is well. He landed on the disabled list August 22, retroactive to August 15, with a mild left shoulder strain. The young southpaw owns a shiny 3.40 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 129/31 K/BB ratio through 132 1/3 innings this season with the Mets.
Aug 29 - 2:43 PM

Nationals optioned RHP Lucas Giolito to Triple-A Syracuse.

Giolito yielded four runs over five innings Sunday in a loss to the Rockies while showing diminished fastball velocity. He now has a 5.62 ERA in 16 innings (four starts) this year at the major league level, but the Nats will likely bring him back after Syracuse's season ends. The 22-year-old right-hander remains one of the top pitching prospects in baseball.
Aug 29 - 2:36 PM

Athletics activated DH Billy Butler from the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Butler suffered a concussion last weekend in a clubhouse fight with teammate Danny Valencia. The two have since apologized, to each other and to the A's organization. Butler has a disappointing .286/.338/.419 batting line with four homers and 30 RBI in 228 plate appearances this season.
