Masahiro Tanaka has been diagnosed with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament.

Oh boy. The Yankees are saying that the tear is small and Tanaka could return after six weeks following a platelet-rich plasma injection. The club noted that the right-hander has seen three doctors and none of them have recommended surgery at this point. However, general manager Brian Cashman also isn't ruling out an operation eventually being required. Tanaka is in the first year of a seven-year, $155 million contract.

They had to prior to the All-Star break or Sizemore was likely to opt out of his contract. The 31-year-old batted .289/.360/.378 with one homer over 10 games for Lehigh Valley to earn the promotion. He hit only .216/.288/.324 for the Red Sox before being released, however, and is no safe bet to turn it around in Philly. Sizemore also isn't guaranteed regular playing time.

Jimmy Nelson will replace Marco Estrada in the Brewers' rotation on Saturday against the Cardinals.

The writing had been on the wall, as Estrada has continued to struggle with the longball while Nelson dominated at Triple-A Nashville. The 25-year-old has put up a 1.46 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, and 114/32 K/BB ratio over 111 innings this season at Nashville and is worth gambling on in all fantasy formats.

Homer Bailey (knee) is expected to make his first start after the All-Star break.

Bailey exited Thursday's contest with pain in his right patellar tendon, but he's expected to be fine. "The timing's good. We can put him on the back end of the rotation coming out of the All-Star break," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "It sounds like he should be good to go by that time."
