Justin Maxwell will be sidelined 4-6 weeks with a non-displaced fracture in his left hand.

It was reported Thursday that Maxwell would miss four weeks, but evidently it's possible it could be a bit longer. He will not require surgery, but it's unclear when he'll be allowed to start swinging a bat again.

Starlin Castro is out of the Yankees' lineup Saturday against the Mariners.

From the looks of it, Castro is just getting a breather. Ronald Torreyes will sub in at second base and bat ninth against M's left-hander Ariel Miranda. Castro has hit .227 since coming back from the disabled list last week.

Brandon Phillips (hamstring) is out of the Braves' lineup Saturday against the Dodgers.

Phillips hasn't been in the lineup since tweaking his hamstring on Thursday night, though he expects to return for Sunday's series finale. Johan Camargo will slide in at second base and bat second against Dodgers lefty Rich Hill.

Justin Turner (illness) is not in the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Braves.

Turner is feeling under the weather, though manager Dave Roberts said he'll be available off the bench and should return to the starting lineup on Sunday. Logan Forsythe will man the hot corner in his place and hit fifth against Braves hurler Julio Teheran. Turner has hit .304 with a homer and three RBI since the All-Star break.

Miguel Cabrera (collarbone) is not in the Tigers' lineup Saturday against the Twins.

Cabrera left Friday night's game with a bruised collarbone and is still feeling the effects. Andrew Romine will draw the start at first base and bat eighth against Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson. Cabrera's X-rays came back negative and the Tigers are calling him day-to-day.

Pirates placed OF Gregory Polanco on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

The Pirates called up left-hander Steven Brault from Triple-A Indianapolis in the corresponding move. Polanco has been phenomenal this month, batting .387 with three homers and nine RBI since July 1. It's a tough blow for the Pirates' offense, though it's softened by the return of Starling Marte, who is back after serving an 80-game PED suspension.

Byron Buxton (groin) will not require a minor league rehab assignment.

Buxton will travel with the team for their upcoming series against the Dodgers and could be activated for Tuesday's series opener. That would be the first day he's eligible to come off the disabled list. Buxton has made a rapid recovery after suffering a strained groin in his first game back from the All-Star break last Friday.

Updating a previous item, Troy Tulowitzki is missing Saturday's game against the Indians with a groin injury.

Manager John Gibbons is hoping to have him back in a day or two but because of the team's short bench, the Jays would probably place Tulowitzki on the disabled list if the injury lingers past Monday. Ryan Goins drew the start at shortstop on Saturday.

Asdrubal Cabrera is starting at third base Saturday against the Athletics.

It will be his first career start at third base and only his second MLB appearance at the hot corner after playing part of one game there as a rookie in 2007. The Mets, who have already moved Cabrera once this season (and he wasn't happy about it), are transitioning Cabrera to third with second baseman Neil Walker expected to come back off the disabled list any day now. Surely the Mets are also hoping Cabrera's versatility will make him more appealing to teams at the trade deadline.

Kris Bryant (finger) returned to the Cubs' starting lineup on Saturday.

There had been rumblings that Bryant could sit out the entire weekend with his finger injury, but it looks as though he's good to go. The 25-year-old is slashing .275/.401/.528 with 19 homers and 40 RBI in 320 at-bats this year.

Brewers optioned OF Keon Broxton to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Broxton possesses a dazzling blend of power and speed, and has clubbed 14 home runs and swiped 17 bases this season, but he also owns a 124/27 K/BB ratio in 326 plate appearances and is mired in a 3-for-50 slump. The Brewers hope to get him back on track again before bringing him back for a potential pennant race.
Jul 22 - 1:07 PM

Diamondbacks recalled LHP Anthony Banda from Triple-A Reno.

The 23-year-old southpaw will make his big league debut on Saturday against the Nationals. While he's talented, he owns a troublesome 5.08 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 93/43 K/BB ratio across 101 innings at Triple-A Reno. He should be avoided for his debut against a hard-hitting Nationals' squad.
