Casey Kelly has micro-tears in the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow and is likely facing Tommy John surgery.

Kelly will seek a second opinion but admitted that he's "prepared (himself) for the worst." The right-hander was shut down for three months of action last season with elbow trouble, and evidently the ligament didn't totally heal. If he does undergo the operation, obviously he would miss all of 2013.

Adam Lind will miss the next six to eight weeks with a non-displaced fracture in his right foot.

Lind played in games as recently as Monday, but an MRI revealed the fracture after the first basemen felt some discomfort in the foot. It's a huge blow for the Blue Jays, as they're already missing Edwin Encarnacion for the next few weeks. Cole Gillespie just came into a lot more at-bats over the next month.

Albert Pujols went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 8-7 win over the Blue Jays.

Pujols had a string of four straight multi-hit games snapped with an 0-for-4 night Tuesday, but he was right back at it on Wednesday. The home run, his 20th of the year, gave the Angels a one-run lead, and they ended up winning by the same margin. He also scored a run in the third inning. His strong push has his season line at .270/.321/.489 with a few days left before the All-Star break.

The Giants are aiming to activate Marco Scutaro (back) from the disabled list on Friday.

The tentative plan is for Scutaro to play a full nine innings with Triple-A Fresno on Thursday, with the team activating him before Friday's game if all goes well. Scutaro hasn't played a game yet this season due to chronic back problems, but he could be a big boost to the Giants in the second half.

Paul Goldschmidt smacked a walkoff two-run double in Wednesday's 4-3 victory over the Marlins.

Arizona entered the bottom of the 10th inning trailing by two runs with Marlins closer Steve Cishek on the mound, but Aaron Hill singled, Ender Inciarte drew a walk, David Peralta hit an RBI single, and then Goldschmidt ended it with a two-run double to left-center field. Goldy is batting .312/.404/.558 with 61 RBI in 92 games this season.

Derek Holland (knee) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment after the All-Star break.

Holland will throw live batting practice over the weekend, and he's tentatively scheduled to make his first rehab start for Triple-A Round Rock on July 23. From there he'll build stamina much like a pitcher just beginning spring training, meaning he won't be back with the Rangers until sometime in August.

Troy Tulowitzki homered twice in the Rockies' 6-3 defeat of the Padres on Wednesday afternoon.

Tulo slugged a solo shot in the Rockies' two-run first inning and then added another solo bomb in the Rockies' three-run eighth. He could be on his way to his first National League MVP trophy with a .350/.441/.616 batting line, 20 homers, and 49 RBI in 86 games.

Royals head trainer Nick Kenney said the team is prepared to be without Jason Vargas for three to four weeks.

It was discovered Wednesday that Vargas needed an emergency appendectomy, and it appears the tam isn't expecting him back before the end of July. Bruce Chen will likely start in his place during his absence.

Carlos Beltran was scratched from the Yankees' starting lineup Wednesday with an eye injury.

Derek Jeter will step in and serve as the Yankees' designated hitter against the Indians. Beltran had been dealing with some swelling in the back of his right knee for much of this week, but he's out Wednesday because he suffered a bruise near his eye when a batting practice ball ricocheted off the screen and struck him.

Francisco Liriano (oblique) will return to the Pirates' starting rotation Sunday against the Reds.

Liriano wound up missing a month with a strained left oblique. He made a dominant rehab start Monday at Triple-A Indianapolis, fanning eight batters and allowing only three hits over six scoreless innings. Vance Worley has been moved to the Pittsburgh bullpen.

Pirates placed OF Starling Marte on the bereavement list.

Marte will miss the final two games of the Pirates' big four-game set in St. Louis. The Bucs have called up Matt Hague in a corresponding 25-man roster move.
Jul 9 - 5:16 PM

Yankees placed RHP Masahiro Tanaka on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation.

Tanaka has flown back to New York to undergo an MRI on his pitching elbow. It's a frightening situation for the Yankees, who committed a record-breaking seven-year, $155 million contract to the Japanese right-hander this winter. Tanaka owns an exceptional 2.51 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 135/19 K/BB ratio over his first 129 1/3 major league frames.
