Latest Headlines

Giants reassigned INF Joe Panik, RHPs Jose Valdez, Edward Concepcion, Fabio Castillo and Justin Fitzgerald, LHP Josh Osich and C Andrew Susac to minor league camp.

No surprises here. Panik is the most high profile of the cuts as a former first-round pick, but he finished last year in A-ball and is obviously a ways away from the majors.

Robinson Cano left Wednesday's game against the Braves with left hamstring tightness.

Cano tweaked his hamstring while rounding first on a double in the third inning. There is no immediate timetable for his return, but hamstring injuries can be tricky to come back from in the short term. The All-Star second baseman will be reevaluated on Thursday.

X-rays on Travis Shaw's injured right foot came back negative.

Shaw fouled a ball off his right foot in Wednesday's loss to the Giants. He was on crutches with his foot encased in a boot after the game, but it looks like the third baseman might have dodged a bullet. The Brewers have deemed him to be day-to-day moving forward. With a natural day off on Thursday, Shaw might not end up missing any games. Stay tuned.

Manny Machado launched a walk-off solo home run in Wednesday's 12-inning, 8-7 win over the A's.

After the A's forced the game into extra innings with two runs in the ninth inning, Machado came up in the 12th and finished matters off in emphatic fashion, swatting a 378-foot solo shot to left-center to end the contest. After a dreadful start to the season, Machado has come on strong after the All-Star break. He has cracked seven homers in his last 10 games and is now slashing .264/.318/.496 with 28 homers and 84 RBI for the campaign as a whole.

Zach Britton took a blown save after allowing two runs in the ninth inning of Wednesday's 12-inning, 8-7 win over A's, his first blown save after cashing in on 60 consecutive chances.

Britton had been working on an AL-record streak of 60 consecutive saves, but the A's finally put a stop to that magnificent streak on Wednesday. He entered in the ninth inning with the Orioles holding a 7-5 lead and proceeded to surrender a single and double to open the frame before Marcus Semien came through with an RBI single and Matt Joyce a sacrifice fly to tie up the contest. And thus Britton's consecutive saves streak was ended.

Red Sox acquired OF Rajai Davis from the Athletics for OF Rafael Rincones.

This is a nice trade for the Red Sox, who add a true speed threat in Davis and bolster their outfield depth in the process. The veteran outfielder is hitting .233/.294/.353 with five homers, 18 RBI and 49 runs scored in an even 100 games. He has stolen 26 bases on the year.

Trevor Rosenthal will undergo Tommy John surgery next week.

Rosenthal injured his right elbow last week. After Dr. George Paletta and Dr. Neal ElAttrache examined medical scans of his arm, Tommy John was determined as the needed course of action. Dr. ElAttrache will perform the procedure. The 27-year-old right-hander is now looking at a long, long road of recovery and will not be ready to return to action until late next summer, at the earliest. Seung Hwan Oh looks like the best bet for saves down the stretch in St. Louis, though Tyler Lyons and John Brebbia could also factor in.

Max Scherzer (neck) will miss his Friday start against the Mets.

Scherzer told reporters that he is a few days behind where he would like to be on the health front, as he still feels some tightness in his neck. He played catch on Wednesday. With the ace right-hander still down for the count, Matt Grace could potentially see another start in his place on Friday versus New York.

Noah Syndergaard (lat) will not throw batting practice for another day or two.

Syndergaard had been expected to throw to hitters on Wednesday. That has now been pushed back until later in the week. Per manager Terry Collins, this slight delay is just a precautionary measure. Syndergaard has not faced live hitters since he tore a lat muscle near the end of April. Expect the Mets to play matters cautiously with their ace.

Cardinals transferred RHP Trevor Rosenthal from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Rosenthal is officially done for the season and could be facing major elbow surgery. Look for the Cardinals to announce a diagnosis soon. Dr. George Paletta and Dr. Neal ElAttrache have both reviewed his elbow scans and will collaborate on the next course of action. Rosenthal had reclaimed the closer role in St. Louis before injuring his right arm last week.
Aug 23 - 3:21 PM

Steven Matz underwent season-ending surgery on his left elbow Wednesday.

The procedure was designed to reposition a compressed nerve in the elbow. Matz finishes the 2017 campaign with a highly disappointing 6.08 ERA, 1.53 WHIP, and 48/19 K/BB ratio in 13 starts covering 66 2/3 innings. The 26-year-old southpaw is expected to be ready for Opening Day in 2018.
Aug 23 - 3:00 PM

Carlos Santana (back) remains out of the Indians' lineup Wednesday versus the Red Sox.

Santana exited Monday's series opener after experiencing tightness in his lower back. It's a day-to-day situation. Edwin Encarnacion is at first base and Yandy Diaz will DH on Wednesday night against Boston left-hander Drew Pomeranz.
