Coco Crisp (hamstring) is expected to test his injured hamstring when he begins running in the next few days.

Crisp finally reported improvement in his injured left hamstring on Saturday, and is now making tangible progress toward a return to the A's lineup. Before his injury, Crisp was an absolute force offensively, hitting .283/.388/.556 with five homers, 12 RBI and eight stolen bases in his first 24 games.

According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, the White Sox are talking to teams about Chris Sale.

That's not exactly breaking news -- trade rumors have swirled around Sale for weeks -- but Passan's report is relevant because those discussions are ongoing even after the ace left-hander was scratched from his scheduled start Saturday against the Tigers because of a pregame clubhouse incident. We don't have any details about that incident, only that it was non-physical and did not cause an injury. This could be a very busy night for Sale's Rotoworld profile.

Chris Sale was scratched from his scheduled start Saturday night against the Tigers because of a pregame "clubhouse incident."

Sale was sent home from U.S. Cellular Field and the White Sox will start Matt Albers instead. Via a statement from the White Sox: "The incident, which was non-physical in nature, currently is under further investigation by the club. The White Sox will have no additional comment until the investigation is completed." Odd stuff.

Tyler Glasnow was pulled from his second major league start Saturday due to shoulder discomfort.

Shoulder troubles rarely end well, but there's no word yet as to the severity of this particular issue. Glasnow figures to see a specialist within the next couple of days. He gave up two runs in three-plus innings Saturday versus the Phillies, hitting two batters and walking three.

Rich Hill (blister) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Sunday.

He'll wear a cover on his finger where a blister has developed and is refusing to go away -- that cover, by the way, can't be worn in a live game. The veteran left-hander lasted just five pitches in his first start out of the All-Star break, back on July 17. Hill is one of Oakland's better trade chips leading up to the August 1 deadline, but he obviously needs to get past this. There is no timetable for his return to the Athletics' rotation.

Cameron Rupp is showing no concussion symptoms.

That's great news. Rupp was pulled from Saturday's game against the Pirates after taking a 91 mph fastball from Tyler Glasnow off the side of his batting helmet. The 27-year-old catcher entered the day with an impressive .810 OPS and 10 home runs in 62 games.

Julio Teheran (lat) performed well in strength tests Saturday.

The hope is that Teheran -- a possible trade chip for the rebuilding Braves -- won't have to miss a rotation turn. He left his start Friday against the Rockies because of a minor lat strain. Look for a decision on Monday or Tuesday, after he throws a bullpen session.

Joe Nathan will join the Cubs' bullpen Sunday.

Nathan walked three batters while recording only one out in his last appearance at Triple-A Iowa, but he had been very good before that outing and the Cubs feel the 41-year-old right-hander can offer an instant upgrade in middle relief. Nathan just finished rehabbing from his second Tommy John surgery. He hasn't pitched in a major league game since April 6, 2015.

Lucas Giolito will return to the majors to start Sunday at home against the Padres.

It's a nice matchup for a talented pitcher, but it will likely be a spot start with Joe Ross (shoulder) nearing his return. Giolito allowed four earned runs in 7 2/3 innings (two starts) three weeks ago with Washington. Those were his first two MLB outings. Maybe he can force the Nationals to keep him on the major league roster if he dominates on Sunday.

Craig Kimbrel (knee) could begin a minor league rehab assignment late next week.

Kimbrel is set to throw a bullpen session Sunday or Monday and he'll do the same on Wednesday. If that all goes well, the next step may be a minor league game. "That could be done at (Triple-A) Pawtucket," Red Sox manager John Farrell said Saturday. "We could be looking at an appearance at Pawtucket. We're not scripting it out past Wednesday, because we could go one of two ways here." Brad Ziegler is filling in at closer for the Red Sox with Koji Uehara (pectoral) possibly done for the year.
Jul 23 - 5:10 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Saturday that he is "hopeful" Koji Uehara (pectoral) can return this season.

Which of course means it's possible he will not return this season. Uehara was placed on the disabled list Wednesday with a strained pectoral, a unique injury for a pitcher. He got platelet-rich plasma treatment on Friday to try to expedite the healing. "There is no number of days that says Koji's going to put a ball back in his hand," Farrell told reporters Saturday. "He’s just getting past the soreness." Brad Ziegler is now serving as the primary closer in Boston with Craig Kimbrel (knee) also on the shelf.

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) remains out of the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Cardinals.

Puig was used as a pinch-hitter in Friday's extra-innings marathon, but he isn't ready to return to the outfield and probably won't start Sunday either. He tweaked his right hamstring Thursday afternoon in D.C.
