Jeff Niemann underwent shoulder surgery on Wednesday.

The procedure was deemed a success, but Niemann is unlikely to pitch this season. He will be arbitration-eligible in the winter and is a non-tender candidate.

Tyler Skaggs showed no rust in carving up the Royals on Tuesday, allowing just three hits over seven scoreless innings in the Angels' 13-0 victory.

Making his first major league start since July 31, 2014, Skaggs was brilliant, needing just 88 pitches to get through his seven innings. He walked one and struck out five before exiting. The 25-year-old, who is working his way back from elbow and shoulder issues, had similar success in minor league rehab starts leading up to Tuesday, so it wasn't a total surprise, but dominating Triple-A opponents and flaying the defending World Series champs are two different things. Skaggs is definitely worth a mixed league flyer, and we'll get a better idea of what we're looking at when he squares off with the potent Red Sox offense on Sunday.

Andrew Miller struck out two in a scoreless inning of work to earn his ninth save as the Yankees bested the Astros 6-3 on Tuesday.

Miller is now 2-for-2 converting save chances since taking over for the departed Aroldis Chapman. What happens with the Yankees' bullpen will be fascinating to watch over the next few days, as the club seems intent on keeping Miller but would almost certainly deal him for the right return. With a 1.39 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 77/7 K/BB ratio in 45 1/3 innings, he won't come cheap.

Francisco Lindor finished 3-for-5 including a game-winning, walk-off single as the Indians came back to beat the Nationals 7-6 on Tuesday.

With the bases loaded and one out, Lindor hit an Oliver Perez pitch just past a drawn-in infield to give the Indians the victory. It capped a good night at the dish for the 22-year-old, who now has multiple hits in four of his last six games. Lindor has been one of the most productive all-around hitters in the league to this point, batting .307/.362/.460 with 12 homers, 50 RBI, 68 runs scored and 13 steals.

Jose Reyes has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 intercostal strain.

Reyes went to a local hospital for tests after feeling a muscle tweak on his final swing of Tuesday afternoon's 3-2 loss to the Cardinals -- part of a traditional doubleheader at Citi Field. He did not play in the night game (a 3-1 win) and the Mets are expecting him to miss at least a couple of days. This could easily turn into a DL situation.

Lucas Harrell tossed six scoreless innings as the Braves shut out the Twins 2-0 on Tuesday.

Harrell gave up just four hits, all singles, and walked three over his six innings. It was his best start of five to date and got him back on track after he'd lost two straight. The right-hander has a decent 3.38 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in those five outings, and he could be pitching himself out of Atlanta and into a playoff race. We'll know soon enough.

Nelson Cruz was lifted from Tuesday's game against the Pirates because of a sore foot.

Cruz fouled a ball off his foot early Tuesday night and looked to be laboring as he ran from first base to third base on a Kyle Seager double in the top of the seventh. It doesn't sound like anything too serious, but the big slugger figures to get a full day off Wednesday as a precautionary measure.

Peter Bourjos (shoulder) said he expects to miss a couple of games.

Bourjos banged his right shoulder on the outfield fence Tuesday while robbing Ichiro Suzuki of a base hit in the first inning. "I jammed it pretty good," he told reporters late Tuesday night. This could obviously damage the 29-year-old's trade value with the August 1 deadline fast approaching.

Bartolo Colon fired seven innings of one-run ball Tuesday to help the Mets defeat the Cardinals 3-1 in the second half of a doubleheader.

Colon kept the Cardinals off balance with his slider all night, yielding just three hits while striking out eight. He did not walk a batter. The one run St. Louis scored all evening came on a solo homer by Jedd Gyorko in the top of the second inning. Colon, 43, is now 9-5 with a 3.35 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 78/21 K/BB ratio in 115 2/3 innings this season.

According to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, top prospect Alex Reyes was lifted from his start Tuesday night at Triple-A Memphis as "insurance" in case he's needed Saturday in Miami.

That would be his major league debut. Tyler Lyons is also a possibility for Saturday, but he might have to be used in relief at some point over the next three days. Reyes struck out seven batters over three innings on Tuesday night against the Triple-A affiliate of the Dodgers and he has 79 strikeouts in 55 total innings this season with the Memphis Redbirds. But those big swing-and-miss totals have come with an ugly 1.42 WHIP and 5.07 ERA. If this does happen, it will likely be a spot start.

Luis Valbuena suffered a right hamstring strain on Tuesday night against the Yankees.

Valbuena pulled up lame while running to first base in the bottom of the second inning. Houston is calling him day-to-day, but a 15-day disabled list stint seems possible. That would open more playing time at third base for top prospect Alex Bregman, who served as the Astros' designated hitter on Tuesday after starting at the hot corner in his MLB debut on Monday.
Jul 26 - 9:27 PM

Rays manager Kevin Cash said he expects Logan Morrison (wrist) to return Wednesday.

LoMo had been aiming to return Tuesday, but the decision was made to give his ailing forearm and wrist a little bit more rest. Steve Pearce is starting at first base for the Rays on Tuesday night against the Dodgers.
