Alexei Ramirez left Saturday's game with back stiffness.

Ramirez tweaked his back in the bottom of the third inning while attempting to make a play on a groundball. The shortstop will likely sit out Sunday but should return to the White Sox starting lineup after the All-Star break.

Henderson Alvarez was named to the National League All-Star team as an injury replacement for Jordan Zimmermann.

Alvarez will be the second member of the Marlins headed to Minneapolis, joining teammate Giancarlo Stanton. He's certainly had a deserving first half, registering a 6-4 record, 2.63 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 73/22 K/BB ratio over his 120 innings of work.

Marco Scutaro has returned to the Giants starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Scutaro has missed the entire season thus far due to a recurring back injury. While he will be eased back into action, he makes for an interesting target in deeper mixed, and NL-only formats.

Brewers placed SS Jean Segura on the bereavement list.

Segura has left the Brewers and returned home to the Dominican Republic to deal with a family tragedy. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke announced Saturday that Segura's nine-month-old son passed away on Friday. Our deepest condolences go out to Segura and to his family at this unfortunate and tragic time.

George Springer has returned to the Astros starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Red Sox.

The dynamic young outfielder was a late scratch from Friday's contest due to discomfort in his right knee. While it sounds like a nagging issue that could remain a problem off and on all season, he felt good enough to give it a go on Saturday. Through 74 games, he's hitting .238/.342/.475 with 19 homers, 50 RBI, five stolen bases and a league-leading 109 strikeouts.
Jul 12 - 12:37 PM

Astros placed RHP Collin McHugh on the 15-day disabled list with a right fingernail avulsion.

McHugh sustained the injury during his last start. He had originally hoped to be ready in time to pitch on Saturday, but the Astros will play things safely and hold him out until after the All-Star break. Brett Oberholtzer will get the start in his place against the Red Sox.

Troy Tulowitzki hit his 21st home run of the season in Friday's win over the Twins.

It was a two-run shot off Kris Johnson in the third inning. Tulowitzki is now tied with Miami's Giancarlo Stanton for the National League lead in home runs. Meanwhile, he leads majors with a .349 batting average and a 1.060 OPS. The Rockies aren't going anywhere this year, but the 29-year-old shortstop could be primed for his first MVP season if his health cooperates in the second half.
Jul 12 - 1:00 AM

Matt Holliday hit a go-ahead solo homer in the ninth inning to lead the Cardinals to a 7-6 victory over the Brewers on Friday.

It finished off a huge night for Holliday, who reached base in four out of his five plate appearances. He also had a single, two doubles, and a walk. The home run was his first since June 16 and just his sixth on the season. The 34-year-old is currently on pace to hit fewer than 20 home runs for the first time since 2005.

David Price was scratched from his scheduled start on Saturday due to illness.

The Rays are hoping that he'll feel well enough to take the hill on Sunday instead. Jake Odorizzi is expected to get the ball on Saturday, on what would be regular rest for him.
Jul 11 - 11:32 PM

Garrett Richards was brilliant yet again Friday, striking out eight batters over seven scoreless innings in a 3-0 victory over the Rangers.

Richards gave up five hits and walked a pair in the victory. He now owns a 1.27 ERA over his last eight starts and hasn't lost since May 30. While the 26-year-old wasn't selected to the All-Star team, he has pitched like one during the first half. He'll go into the break at 11-2 with a 2.55 ERA and 127 strikeouts in 123 1/3 innings.
