Casey Janssen (shoulder) threw a successful bullpen session on Thursday morning in Blue Jays camp.

It was his first mound workout since November shoulder surgery. "I’m happy where I’m at and as long as I don’t have a setback, I think I’m in a good spot," Janssen told reporters. "Just stay the course." He is expected to open the 2013 season as Toronto's ninth-inning man.

Starling Marte (oblique) is not in the Pirates' lineup Monday.

The Pirates are calling him day-to-day for now even though it's almost surely a strained oblique Marte is dealing with (the club has only said he has discomfort in his left side). It appears he'll avoid the disabled list for now, but fantasy owners would be wise not to count on him for a few days. Sean Rodriguez is in left field Monday.

Carlos Gomez (wrist) is back in the Brewers' lineup Monday.

Gomez sat out Sunday's game after having to leave Saturday following a hit by pitch on the left wrist. He's probably still a tad sore but should be fine.

According to the Pittsburgh Tribune's Rob Biertempfel, Josh Harrison has torn ligaments in his thumb and will be out up to six weeks.

Harrison wasn't in the lineup for Monday's game against the Padres. He apparently injured his hand while making an awkward slide into second on Sunday. A six-week recovery time would put his return around mid-to-late August.

Brewers placed RHP Matt Garza on the disabled list, retroactive to July 3, with right shoulder tendinitis.

This is somewhat surprising, as there was little indication that Garza was dealing with arm troubles. It's unknown if this has been impacting his recent performance, but in his last two starts, he's been hit hard to the tune of 11 runs on 23 hits over 11 1/3 innings. For the season, Garza holds a 5.55 ERA and 68/33 K/BB ratio. No timetable has been set for his return as of yet.

According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the Giants are looking at Brewers outfielder Gerardo Parra and Braves outfielder Cameron Maybin as possible trade targets.

Parra is currently playing for one of the worst teams in baseball and is a logical trade candidate. He's been on fire of late, too, raising his season slash line to .308/.345/.477 thanks to a bevy of multi-hit games to start July. He's also swatted seven home runs and driven in 25. Olney notes that Giant outfielders--combined--have hit just 12 homers on the season.

ESPN's Buster Olney wrote that some other teams perceive that the Braves may be willing to trade Cameron Maybin as a sell-high move before the trade deadline.

It should be noted here that Olney does not attach any specific team names, but it would make sense that the Braves would at least be open to discussing Maybin, who is posting one of the best overall seasons of his career (.294/.363.416, seven homers, 39 RBI, 15 steals). The team currently sits at 40-42.

Jordan Zimmermann pitched brilliantly in Sunday's victory over the Giants, allowing just one run on three hits over seven strong innings.

The right-hander racked up eight strikeouts on the evening while issuing just one walk. The only blemish on his night came on a solo home run by Brandon Crawford in the fourth inning. The 29-year-old is enjoying another terrific season, compiling a 3.04 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 77/20 K/BB ratio over 106 2/3 innings. He'll look to wrap up the first half on a high note when he squares off against the Orioles in Baltimore on Saturday.
Jul 5 - 11:17 PM

Albert Pujols blasted his 25th home run of the season on Sunday as the Angels routed the Rangers 12-6 in Arlington.

Pujols finished the night 2-for-5. He had an RBI single as part of a three-run uprising in the first inning, then tagged Colby Lewis for a solo shot in the fourth to put the Halos up 8-1. He's having a terrific first half, slashing .265/.337/.557 with 25 bombs and 53 RBI.
Jul 5 - 10:20 PM

Bryce Harper was the leading vote getter in the entire National League for the All-Star game, garnering 13,864,950 ballots.

It will be the third time in his first four years in the big leagues that he has made the National League squad. He'll be joined by Paul Goldschmidt, Dee Gordon, Todd Frazier, Jhonny Peralta, Buster Posey, Giancarlo Stanton and Matt Holliday in the starting lineup for the senior circuit. Stanton is on the disabled list and will not be able to appear in the game, and Holliday's status is up in the air.
Jul 5 - 8:20 PM

While it wasn't the complete sweep that Royals fans had pushed so hard for, four Royals were voted in as starters for the American League squad in the 2015 All-Star game.

Alcides Escobar and Salvador Perez were each the leading vote getters at their respective positions, while Lorenzo Cain and Alex Gordon finished second and third respectively in the outfield. They'll join Miguel Cabrera, Jose Altuve, Josh Donaldson, Nelson Cruz and Mike Trout as the fan's picks to start the mid-summer classic, though Cabrera is on the disabled list and will not be able to play in the game.
Jul 5 - 8:16 PM

Wilmer Flores posted his third straight game with three-plus hits in Sunday's 8-0 win over the Dodgers, finishing 4-for-5 with two doubles and three RBI.

The way he's going, Flores is probably dreading the All-Star Break. He hit an RBI single in the first inning against Mets starter Mike Bolsinger, then followed it up with a run-scoring infield single in the fourth and an RBI double in the eighth. Flores is 11 for his last 16 and has recorded three or more hits in each of his last three games. Overall, he's hitting .258/.289/.412 with 10 homers, 38 RBI and 31 runs scored.
