Jesse Crain (shoulder) hopes to appear in a minor league game by mid-week or shortly after.

The right-hander threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Sunday and has some fatigue but no pain. He's been nursing a strained adductor muscle since early on in camp but should have enough time to get ready for Opening Day as long as he can avoid setbacks.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Jul 11 - 11:32 PM

Garrett Richards was brilliant yet again Friday, striking out eight batters over seven scoreless innings in a 3-0 victory over the Rangers.

Richards gave up five hits and walked a pair in the victory. He now owns a 1.27 ERA over his last eight starts and hasn't lost since May 30. While the 26-year-old wasn't selected to the All-Star team, he has pitched like one during the first half. He'll go into the break at 11-2 with a 2.55 ERA and 127 strikeouts in 123 1/3 innings.
Jul 11 - 11:32 PM

Anibal Sanchez picked up his sixth victory of the season on Friday, limiting the Royals to just one run on eight hits over seven innings.

Sanchez punched out three on the night and didn’t walk a batter. The only damage against him on the night came in the first inning, where Salvador Perez cashed in Eric Hosmer with an RBI single. He’ll head into the All-Star break with a terrific 3.04 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 70/25 K/BB ratio over his first 94 2/3 innings.
Jul 11 - 11:15 PM

Nick Hundley came through with an RBI single off Adam Warren in the 10th inning on Friday, leading the Orioles to a walk-off 3-2 victory.

The veteran backstop finished the night 2-for-4 with that critical RBI. With the two-hit effort, he's now hitting .264/.282/.384 with 13 RBI in 125 at-bats on the season. If he continues to swing the bat well, he could be in line for additional playing time behind the plate for the Orioles.
Jul 11 - 10:27 PM

Jimmy Rollins homered twice and knocked in three runs in a 6-2 win over the Nationals on Friday night.

Rollins connected for a two-run shot off Jordan Zimmermann in the third inning and later added a solo blast against Craig Stammen in the seventh. It was his first multi-hit homer game since August 1, 2012, also against the Nationals. While the 35-year-old has seen his batting average drop off in a big way since the start of the season, he's now up to 11 home runs on the year. He hit just six of them in 160 games last year.
Jul 11 - 10:19 PM

Bryce Harper hit a solo homer in Friday's loss to the Phillies.

It was his second home run of the season and his first since coming off the disabled list. It was a long wait for Harper, as his first was way back on April 9. He ended up going three months and 102 plate appearances between home runs. Harper has really struggled since returning, but we expect much better as he shakes the rust and gets further removed from surgery.
Jul 11 - 10:18 PM

Nationals manager Matt Williams said after Friday's game that Jordan Zimmermann was removed with a right bicep cramp.

The right-hander will undergo a precautionary MRI on Saturday to rule out any structural damage. For the moment, it's encouraging that the injury doesn't have anything to do with his elbow or shoulder. Unfortunately, he will now be forced to miss the All-Star Game for the second consecutive season due to injury.
