Nationals avoided arbitration with RHP Craig Stammen by agreeing to a two-year, $2.25 million contract.

Stammen, who was arbitration-eligible for the first time as a Super 2 qualifier, held a 2.34 ERA while striking out a batter per inning for the Nats last season. He'll pitch the middle innings for them in 2013.

Adam Eaton exited Sunday's game versus the Mariners with a bruised right forearm.

Eaton was hit in the forearm by a Taijuan Walker pitch in the fourth inning. The good news is X-rays came back negative and he's considered day-to-day.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Yasiel Puig has been placed on revocable waivers.

Most every player goes through revocable waivers in August, but there would seem to be a small chance Puig gets moved given the whispers about the Dodgers listening to trade offers for him over the last couple months. However, as Rosenthal notes, a trade is much likelier over the offseason when the Dodgers are able to negotiate with all teams rather than just the one that claims him.

Asdrubal Cabrera exited Sunday's game versus the Phillies with a sore left knee.

It looked like his arm was hurt in a collision at first base with Tommy Joseph, but apparently Cabrera aggravated the knee injury that recently cost him three weeks of action. The Mets could have more on his status after the game, but this could certainly be a disabled list situation.

Sonny Gray (forearm) is slated to resume a throwing program this week.

Gray has been shut down for the last three weeks with a muscle strain and inflammation in his right forearm, but he's apparently experienced improvement of late. A return before the end of the season is possible but not a given, especially with the minor league season likely ending before Gray would be ready for a rehab assignment. He's posted a 5.74 ERA over 21 starts this season.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports hears that Giancarlo Stanton (groin) could return for the final week of the regular season if things go "absolutely perfect."

The report backs up what Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill said a week ago about Stanton holding out hope for a late-season return. It's certainly good news for the club, although it's just speculation at this point with Stanton still shut down from baseball activities. The slugger suffered a Grade 3 groin strain two weeks ago.

Dustin Pedroia will be away from the Red Sox on Sunday due to a family matter.

The Red Sox will not make a roster move, and it's possible, although not a given, that Pedroia will rejoin the club on Monday. It's unfortunate timing, as Pedroia is red-hot at the plate with 11 hits in his last 12 at-bats. The Red Sox are playing the Sunday night game and haven't released a lineup yet, so it's unclear who will be filling in for Pedroia at second base. Aaron Hill, Brock Holt and Marco Hernandez are the options.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Sunday that Adam Jones (hamstring) is "close" to returning to the lineup.

Showalter speculated that if they were playing a night game rather than a day game Sunday that Jones would be in the lineup. The outfielder has been in and out of action since suffering a hamstring injury Thursday but should be available off the bench Sunday and back in the lineup Monday.

Wil Myers was scratched from the Padres' lineup Sunday with a stomach virus.

He should be OK in a day or two. Yangervis Solarte will slide across the diamond to cover for Myers, with Adam Rosales entering the lineup at third base.

Junior Guerra (elbow) is on track to rejoin the Brewers' rotation next weekend in Pittsburgh.

Guerra threw 3 1/3 scoreless innings in a rehab start with Triple-A Colorado Springs on Saturday. He'll be examined by the Brewers' medical staff before officially being cleared to rejoin the rotation later this week, assuming all is well. Guerra holds a 2.93 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 107 1/3 innings this season and should be scooped up in fantasy leagues where he was dropped.

Alex Cobb (elbow) will rejoin the Rays' rotation on Friday or Saturday against the Blue Jays.

Cobb has completed his rehab from Tommy John surgery, although his rehab assignment did not go smoothly. The right-hander posted a 6.65 ERA over eight starts and had to be shut down for a while last month due to arm fatigue. Fantasy owners would be wise to give him a start or two to see how he looks before considering activating him.
Aug 28 - 12:16 PM

Lance McCullers (elbow) resumed a throwing program on Friday.

He played catch Friday and said he felt fine the day after on Saturday. Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Saturday that it will be a while before McCullers can throw aggressively on flat ground or off a mound, so his return isn't imminent. Still, it's a nice step.
