Marlins transferred RHP Henderson Alvarez from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot for Nick Green on the active roster. Alvarez recently had a setback with his shoulder and isn't close to returning.

Brandon Phillips will undergo left thumb surgery and is expected to miss around six weeks.

The exact nature of the injury isn't yet known, but it's apparently not as serious as Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina, who is expected to miss 8-12 weeks following thumb surgery. The Reds figure to look to Ramon Santiago as their primary second baseman for now.

Brett Gardner (abdominal strain) is back in Thursday's lineup against the Indians.

Gardner was held out of Wednesday's lineup with a lower abdominal strain, but he apparently feels well enough to give it a go Thursday. The Yankees need some good news right now and this certainly qualifies.

Angels placed LHP C.J. Wilson on the 15-day disabled list with a right ankle sprain.

Wilson was knocked around for six runs (three earned) in 3 2/3 innings Wednesday against the Blue Jays and has a 10.26 ERA over his last four starts, so an injury would explain the struggles. The Angels aren't expected to need their fifth starter again until July 22, so Wilson might only have to miss one start if he makes it back when he's first eligible.

Yadier Molina has been diagnosed with a torn ligament in his right thumb and will undergo surgery.

Molina is among the most irreplaceable players in baseball, and now the second-place Cardinals are likely going to be without him for the remainder of the 2014 regular season. Tony Cruz is starting at catcher in St. Louis on Thursday night against the Pirates, but the Cards might need to go shopping for an upgrade. Molina suffered the torn ligament Wednesday on an awkward slide into third base.

Yankees placed DH Carlos Beltran on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Beltran suffered multiple facial fractures (and a concussion) when he was struck in the face by a tipped batting practice ball on Wednesday night. He reported feeling better a few hours after the injury and will aim to return to the Yankees right after the All-Star break.

Royals placed LHP Jason Vargas on the 15-day disabled list with appendicitis.

Vargas underwent an appendectomy on Thursday and could be out 3-4 weeks. Bruce Chen seems likely to take his rotation spot. Vargas, 31, owns a 3.31 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 82/29 K/BB ratio in 125 innings this season.

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, Brandon Phillips (thumb) will be out for "a while."

Phillips rolled over his left thumb Wednesday while trying to make a diving play on the edge of the outfield grass. The Reds initially labeled it a thumb sprain, but Rosenthal is hearing from sources that it's more of a "ligament issue" and "possible tear." Ramon Santiago started at second base for Cincinnati on Thursday afternoon against the Cubs.

Homer Bailey was removed from his start Thursday against the Cubs due to pain in his right patellar tendon.

That's better than an arm injury but still a serious concern for the Reds and their $105 million starter. Bailey allowed three earned runs in five innings before pulling up lame in the middle of a pitch in the top of the sixth. Cincinnati's medical staff should provide an update on the right-hander's knee at some point Thursday evening. Bailey finishes the first half with a 4.21 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 105/38 K/BB ratio in 117 2/3 innings.

Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel suspects the Brewers will call up top pitching prospect Jimmy Nelson to start Saturday against the Cardinals.

Nelson was sharp in a spot start in late May against the Marlins and owns a lights-out 1.46 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, and 114/32 K/BB ratio over 111 innings this season at Triple-A Nashville. If he pitches well against second-place St. Louis, he could be up in the majors for good. The 25-year-old right-hander is worth grabbing in all standard mixed fantasy leagues.

ESPN's Jayson Stark hears that the Rockies want a "young impact starter" in return for Jorge De La Rosa.

Stark adds that the Rockies are "very unlikely" to find such a return given that De La Rosa owns a rough 4.75 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in 18 starts this season and is set to become a free agent this winter. Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reported Tuesday that the Orioles are "monitoring" the 33-year-old left-hander, but it doesn't sound like the two teams are going to be able to find a common ground for a trade. The O's would be taking a step backward if they moved one of their young pitching prospects for a mediocre rental.
Jul 10 - 1:04 PM

Jered Weaver (back) is expected to make his next scheduled start Saturday against the Rangers.

Weaver made an early departure from his outing Monday against the Blue Jays with tightness in his lower back, but he played catch Tuesday and felt fine. The right-hander owns a 3.50 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 93/33 K/BB ratio in 118 1/3 innings this season for the Angels.
