Dodgers pitching coach Rick Honeycutt indicated Tuesday that he's not sure how Chad Billingsley's elbow will hold up during spring training.

"He has to be smart and be open if he feels something so he doesn't push it past the point," said Honeycutt. "There's a fine line between being really hurt or having something you can deal with. Chad tends to pitch through whatever is going on, and he's not always open about what's going on. He needs to be honest with himself." Billingsley was shut down late last season with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his throwing elbow, but he has responded well after receiving platelet-rich plasma injections. If he's healthy, there likely won't be room for Chris Capuano, Aaron Harang or Ted Lilly in the starting rotation, but a lot can change between now and Opening Day.

Dominic Brown was scratched from Saturday's lineup against the Nationals with an illness.

It's not clear whether he'll be able to return Sunday for the Phillies' final game before the All-Star break. Brown is batting just .225/.277/.328 with six home runs and 46 RBI in 90 games this season.

Victor Martinez (oblique) is expected to return to the Tigers' starting lineup on Friday.

Martinez has been sidelined with an oblique injury since July 4. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said the designated hitter is doing better and should be ready to go for the club's first game after the All-Star break.

Alexei Ramirez left Saturday's game with back stiffness.

Ramirez tweaked his back in the bottom of the third inning while attempting to make a play on a groundball. The shortstop will likely sit out Sunday but should return to the White Sox starting lineup after the All-Star break.

Henderson Alvarez was named to the National League All-Star team as an injury replacement for Jordan Zimmermann.

Alvarez will be the second member of the Marlins headed to Minneapolis, joining teammate Giancarlo Stanton. He's certainly had a deserving first half, registering a 6-4 record, 2.63 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 73/22 K/BB ratio over his 120 innings of work.
Jul 12 - 1:37 PM

Marco Scutaro has returned to the Giants starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Scutaro has missed the entire season thus far due to a recurring back injury. While he will be eased back into action, he makes for an interesting target in deeper mixed, and NL-only formats.

Brewers placed SS Jean Segura on the bereavement list.

Segura has left the Brewers and returned home to the Dominican Republic to deal with a family tragedy. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke announced Saturday that Segura's nine-month-old son passed away on Friday. Our deepest condolences go out to Segura and to his family at this unfortunate and tragic time.

George Springer has returned to the Astros starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Red Sox.

The dynamic young outfielder was a late scratch from Friday's contest due to discomfort in his right knee. While it sounds like a nagging issue that could remain a problem off and on all season, he felt good enough to give it a go on Saturday. Through 74 games, he's hitting .238/.342/.475 with 19 homers, 50 RBI, five stolen bases and a league-leading 109 strikeouts.
Jul 12 - 12:37 PM

Astros placed RHP Collin McHugh on the 15-day disabled list with a right fingernail avulsion.

McHugh sustained the injury during his last start. He had originally hoped to be ready in time to pitch on Saturday, but the Astros will play things safely and hold him out until after the All-Star break. Brett Oberholtzer will get the start in his place against the Red Sox.
Jul 12 - 11:24 AM

Troy Tulowitzki hit his 21st home run of the season in Friday's win over the Twins.

It was a two-run shot off Kris Johnson in the third inning. Tulowitzki is now tied with Miami's Giancarlo Stanton for the National League lead in home runs. Meanwhile, he leads majors with a .349 batting average and a 1.060 OPS. The Rockies aren't going anywhere this year, but the 29-year-old shortstop could be primed for his first MVP season if his health cooperates in the second half.
Jul 12 - 1:00 AM

Matt Holliday hit a go-ahead solo homer in the ninth inning to lead the Cardinals to a 7-6 victory over the Brewers on Friday.

It finished off a huge night for Holliday, who reached base in four out of his five plate appearances. He also had a single, two doubles, and a walk. The home run was his first since June 16 and just his sixth on the season. The 34-year-old is currently on pace to hit fewer than 20 home runs for the first time since 2005.
Jul 12 - 12:36 AM

David Price was scratched from his scheduled start on Saturday due to illness.

The Rays are hoping that he'll feel well enough to take the hill on Sunday instead. Jake Odorizzi is expected to get the ball on Saturday, on what would be regular rest for him.
