Brewers signed RHP Alfredo Figaro to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The deal was originally agreed to in mid-December, but Figaro first had to get out of his contract with Japan's Orix Buffaloes. The 28-year-old right-hander will be fighting for a middle relief job this spring in Brewers camp.

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) remained out of the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

Puig was able to pinch-hit Friday, but he hasn't started a game since tweaking his right hamstring on Thursday. It doesn't appear at this point that a disabled list stint is being considered. Andrew Toles is in right field.

Ryan Schimpf slugged another home run Sunday as the Padres defeated the Nationals 10-6.

Schimpf hit an RBI single in the top of the fourth inning and a solo homer in the top of the eighth, finishing the day 3-for-5 with two runs scored and two RBI. The 28-year-old second baseman now has nine home runs in July, which is a new record for a Padres rookie in a single calendar month. Schimpf was raking at the Triple-A level prior to his mid-June promotion, so maybe this breakout is somewhat for real.

Angel Pagan singled, doubled and triple in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Yankees.

Pagan finished 3-for-5, but alas, he couldn't find the power stroke and missed out on the cycle by a home run. The outfielder's three-hit afternoon pushed his triple-slash to .292/.337/.432. In terms of counting stats, he has five homers, 33 RBI, 37 runs scored and nine steals in 250 at-bats.

Marlins placed LHP Wei-Yin Chen on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 21, with a left elbow sprain.

Chen having an elbow issue was first reported by SiriusXM's Craig Mish. Manager Don Mattingly said that the club is hopeful the injury isn't serious, but it sounds like they might not know for sure until after Chen is examined further. Jarred Cosart has placed Chen in the rotation for the time being, but the Marlins are expected to seek rotation help before the trade deadline.

Addison Russell exited Sunday's game against the Brewers with a bruised left heel.

He fouled a ball off the heel Saturday and it got progressively sore on him Sunday. The Cubs are saying his removal was precautionary, so consider Russell day-to-day. Javier Baez is likely to fill in at shortstop for any amount of time that Russell might miss.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Diamondbacks "have let teams know Shelby Miller is available in a trade."

Passan, rather obviously, notes that the price to acquire Miller "isn't nearly what it cost them eight months ago." The right-hander's stock has dropped so much after a 7.14 ERA in 14 starts and a demotion to the minors that you've got to wonder if the D'Backs aren't better off riding it out. Perhaps they think they can capitalize somewhat on a depressed starting pitching market. Robert Murray of FanRag Sports reports that the Dodgers and Marlins are among the teams that have inquired on Miller.

Bruce Levine of WSCR-AM and 670thescore.com reports that the Indians "have the best names on the table" for Aroldis Chapman.

Previous reports have had both the Nationals and Cubs out in front in the sweepstakes for Chapman. There's also been a "mystery team" floated. In other words, welcome to the trade deadline. The Indians already have a capable closer in Cody Allen, but adding Chapman would bolster their bullpen for a possible playoff run.

Carlos Rodon (wrist) will make a rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte on Monday.

White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said whether Rodon needs an additional rehab start will depend on how he feels. In other words, he should rejoin the Pale Hose rotation later this week as long as he doesn't have a setback. Rodon has missed two and a half weeks with a sprained left wrist.

Logan Morrison (wrist) remained out of the Rays' lineup Sunday.

Morrison hasn't played in a week due to a wrist issue. Rays manager Kevin Cash said recently that the injury was getting worse, although the club obviously hasn't placed LoMo on the disabled list yet. Steve Pearce is at first base Sunday.

Tyler Skaggs will make his season debut for the Angels on Tuesday in Kansas City.

Skaggs has completed his rehab from Tommy John surgery and also from a shoulder ailment that cropped up earlier this season. The usual caution should be applied here with anyone coming back from Tommy John surgery, but Skaggs was dominant of late for Triple-A Salt Lake, allowing just two runs while striking out 26 over his last 12 2/3 frames. He's worth a flier in deeper mixed leagues.
Jul 24 - 1:20 PM

Orioles activated RHP Darren O'Day from the 15-day disabled list.

O'Day has been on the shelf since early June with a nagging hamstring injury. He'll return to a setup role.
