Padres signed 2B Adam Buschini to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Buschini flamed out after being a fourth-round pick of the Phillies in 2009, but he resurfaced in independent ball and won the Australian Baseball League Triple Crown in 2012, hitting .363 with 15 home runs and 50 RBI in 42 games for the Canberra Cavalry. He also played 96 games last year for the Amarillo Sox of the American Association, batting .354 with 14 homers, 70 RBI and 34 steals. Buschini is a longshot to make the Opening Day roster, but his story is an interesting one.

Jarred Cosart fired seven shutout innings Saturday in the Marlins' 4-0 blanking of the Braves.

Cosart scattered seven hits and a walk over his seven dominant frames, striking out five. He struggled in his first start with the Marlins back on August 1, but the trade deadline acquisition has been dominant since. He's now 3-1 with a 1.64 ERA in a Miami uniform.

Scott Feldman tossed his first shutout of the season Saturday as the Astros beat the Rangers 2-0.

Feldman carved his way easily through the Texas lineup, allowing only three hits and a walk while striking out five. He's been a disappointment for the most part in his first year of a three-year, $30 million contract, but this outing was truly dominant. Feldman will carry an 8-10 record, 4.09 ERA, and 1.41 WHIP into his next start on the road against the A's.

Orioles acquired OF Alejandro De Aza from the White Sox for RHPs Miguel Chalas and Mark Blackmar.

De Aza has good speed and can play all three outfield positions, making him a nice addition to the Baltimore bench for the stretch run. The 30-year-old was batting .243/.309/.354 with 15 stolen bases in 122 games this season for the White Sox. He'll be arbitration-eligible for the third and final time this winter. Chalas and Blackmar are non-prospects.

Miguel Cabrera made an early exit from the second half of Saturday's doubleheader with the White Sox after appearing to aggravate his lingering right ankle injury.

It was overly ambitious of the Tigers to think that Cabrera -- who has been limping around for weeks -- could gut it out for both games. He looked to be in serious discomfort on a groundout in the top of the fourth inning and did not take the field for the bottom of the fourth. Cabrera can probably be considered day-to-day through the rest of 2014.

Dustin Pedroia left Saturday's game against the Rays with an apparent head injury.

Pedroia got struck in the face by Kevin Kiermaier's forearm on a collision at the second base bag in the bottom of the second inning. Brock Holt moved from third base to second base and Will Middlebrooks took over at the hot corner. The Red Sox should provide an update on Pedroia at some point Saturday night.

Mark Melancon picked up his 26th save of the season Saturday in the Pirates' 3-2 defeat of the Reds.

Melancon retired all three batters he faced in the top of the ninth inning, one via strikeout. He owns a dominant 2.04 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, and 54/9 K/BB ratio in 57 1/3 frames this season for the Bucs.

Hanley Ramirez (leg) is in the Dodgers' starting lineup Saturday night against the Padres.

Hanley was not on the original lineup card, but he felt good in a pregame workout so manager Don Mattingly gave him the go-ahead. Ramirez suffered a minor left leg injury Friday in the Dodgers' 12th-inning loss.

Omar Infante (shoulder) is back in the Royals' starting lineup Saturday night against the Indians.

Infante had been sidelined since Monday with a lingering right shoulder injury and acknowledged Saturday that he is still experiencing discomfort. But the veteran second baseman wants to play through the pain as the Royals try to reach the playoffs for the first time since 1985. "It’s not going to subside," manager Ned Yost said. "Forget it subsiding. He’s probably at about 80 percent right now, which is good enough to play."

Matt Garza (oblique) has been cleared to rejoin the Brewers' rotation Wednesday versus the Cubs.

Garza, out since August 4 with a left oblique strain, threw all of his pitches in a successful simulated game Friday evening in San Francisco. Jimmy Nelson was optioned to the minors on Saturday afternoon and will return as a reliever when rosters expand, freeing up a rotation spot for Garza.
Aug 30 - 6:00 PM

Coco Crisp is not in the A's lineup Saturday.

Crisp came up sore after crashing into the center field wall Friday while trying to rob Chris Iannetta of a home run. Sam Fuld is leading off and Craig Gentry is playing center on Saturday night against the Angels.
Aug 30 - 5:05 PM

An MRI taken Saturday on Desmond Jennings' left knee showed no major damage.

Jennings is aiming to return to the Rays' starting lineup on Sunday after sitting out Friday and Saturday. The 27-year-old outfielder has 10 homers and 15 stolen bases in 123 games this season for Tampa Bay, but he's registered a disappointing .244/.319/.378 slash line.
