Latest Headlines

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Indians continue to discuss contract extensions with Michael Brantley and Jason Kipnis.

The Indians began talking to Brantley about an extension before they signed Michael Bourn. His long-term value is lower in left field than it was in center field, which adds a new dynamic to the negotiations. The 25-year-old will be arbitration-eligible for the first time after the 2013 season. As for Kipnis, he won't be arbitration-eligible until after 2014. With each player, the Indians would likely want to buy out their arbitration seasons and perhaps multiple years of free agency.

Patrick Corbin (elbow) will make his season debut on Saturday against the Rockies.

Corbin had been slated for one more rehab start, but the Diamondbacks felt that he looked ready on his rehab assignment so they will bring him back a little early. Making his way back from Tommy John surgery, the left-hander put up a 4.76 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 17 rehab innings. Ideally, fantasy owners should give him at least a start or two before sticking him back into their lineup.
Jul 3 - 5:10 PM

Tigers activated C Alex Avila from the 15-day disabled list.

Avila missed nearly two months of action with a left knee issue. He returns to a .200/.342/.317 batting line with two homers across 22 games this season.
Jul 3 - 3:25 PM

Tigers designated RHP Joba Chamberlain for assignment.

Chamberlain pitched well for the Tigers last season and wound up resigning over the winter. He went on to post a 4.09 ERA and 1.68 WHIP over 30 appearances and was particularly bad of late with eight runs allowed over his last seven games. He'll clear waivers and get a shot elsewhere. Detroit also designated Tom Gorzelanny for assignment as they shake up their bullpen.
Jul 3 - 3:12 PM

Yankees placed OF Carlos Beltran on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 1, with a left oblique strain.

The Yanks gave Beltran a couple days to see if he could improve enough to avoid the DL, but obviously it didn't happen. He'll be eligible for activation immediately following the All-Star break, but it remains to be ready if he'll be ready at that time.
Jul 3 - 3:04 PM

Giants activated RHP Jake Peavy from the 15-day disabled list.

Peavy will rejoin the rotation on Friday in Washington. The veteran right-hander has been on the shelf since mid-April with back issues and should probably be avoided for fantasy purposes for the time being.
Jul 3 - 1:53 PM

Sonny Gray (illness) could be placed on the disabled list.

Gray has been released from the hospital after a nasty bout with salmonella, but he only resumed eating solid food on Thursday and is still weak. A backdated DL move would leave Gray eligible to return as soon as July 11, just before the All-Star break. Chris Bassitt will fill in for Gray again on Sunday.
Jul 3 - 1:26 PM

Rays activated 1B James Loney from the 15-day disabled list.

Loney progressed more quickly than expected in his recovery from a broken left middle finger and has been cleared to return after a few rehab games. He returns to a .275/.322/.376 batting line and should provide a much-needed boost for the Rays at first base.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Jeff Samardzija "is on the list" of the Blue Jays.

Samardzija has already been dealt twice over the last year and the impending free agent is likely to be on the move again with the White Sox out of contention. The right-hander has put up a disappointing 4.56 ERA this season, but his stuff looks to be intact and he would be a welcome upgrade to the Blue Jays' rotation.
Jul 3 - 9:10 AM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the "word for now seems to be that it's unlikely" Cole Hamels would approve a trade to the Astros.

Heyman says that Houston "would love" the southpaw, but "there still is no reason to believe its feeling is reciprocated by Hamels." The left-hander could always change his mind, of course, and it also might wind up being a moot point if another teams offers a better trade package. The Astros certainly appear to be in the market for a big arm this month.
Jul 3 - 9:01 AM

Kyle Gibson spun eight scoreless innings in a 2-0 win over the Royals on Thursday.

Gibson had runners on first and second with one out in the eighth inning, but struck out Lorenzo Cain swinging and got Eric Hosmer to ground out to wiggle out of the jam. It was the exclamation point on a terrific outing for the young right-hander, who allowed a total of four hits and four walks while striking out seven. He has fanned 54 batters in 64 1/3 innings over his last 10 starts, which is really encouraging. He'll bring a 3.04 ERA into a start against the Orioles next week.
Jul 2 - 11:38 PM

Dodgers designated RHP Brandon League for assignment.

As he's still owed $7.5 million this season, it's extremely unlikely that any other squad will pick up the veteran hurler off of waivers. He should continue to provide organizational bullpen depth for the Dodgers.
