Juan Carlos Oviedo (elbow) had to be shut down from throwing for a few days recently because of lat soreness.

It doesn't appear to be a major setback, but it won't help Oviedo's chances at returning next month to fill a role in the Rays' bullpen. Tampa would probably view his return as an unexpected bonus at this point.

Rockies placed OF Corey Dickerson on the 15-day disabled list with non-displaced fractures of two ribs.

An MRI exam revealed Friday that Dickerson had sustained non-displaced fractures of two ribs on his right side while diving for a line drive during Thursday's contest against the Cardinals. It's the third time that the outfielder has been forced to the disabled list this season. There is no clear timetable for his return at the moment.

Blue Jays designated INF/OF Danny Valencia for assignment.

With all of the recent acquisitions that the Blue Jays have made, they were forced to make a few tough decisions on their roster and it appears that Valencia is the odd-man out. The lefty-masher was hitting .296/.331/.506 overall with seven homers and 29 RBI in 162 at-bats. He should attract interest from plenty of teams looking to upgrade their bench.

Taijuan Walker pitched a one-hitter and struck out 11 as the Mariners beat the Twins 6-1 on Friday.

The lone hit was Miguel Sano's solo homer in the fourth inning. It's Walker's first career complete-game victory (he had one other complete game, but it was an eight-inning loss to the Blue Jays last season). He might be prone to bouts with inconsistency, but he should still be worth riding in mixed leagues the rest of the way.

Mark Teixeira had a monster night Friday against the Rangers, going 3-for-6 with two home runs, six RBI, and two walks.

Batting right-handed, Teixeira took Carlos Rodon deep for a grand slam in the second inning before connecting for a two-run shot against Matt Albers from the left side in the fourth. It was the 14th time in his career that he homered from both sides of the plate in the same game, setting a new major league record. The veteran slugger has back-to-back multi-homer games and is now batting .269/.375/.585 with 28 home runs and 73 RBI on the year. It's been a remarkable resurgence.

Wilmer Flores clubbed a walk-off homer in the 12th inning to give the Mets a 2-1 win over the Nationals on Friday.

You couldn't write it up any better. Flores, who cried on the field Wednesday night after believing that he had been traded to the Brewers, drove in both runs for the Mets on Friday night and was the most popular person at Citi Field. After hitting an RBI single in the fourth inning, he took Felipe Rivero deep to lead off the bottom of the 12th to end it. It was a feel-good moment for Flores and for the Mets, who are two games back of the Nationals in the NL East.

Welington Castillo belted a game-winning solo home run in the 10th inning on Friday, powering the Diamondbacks to a 6-4 victory over the Astros.

Castillo victimized Pat Neshek for the go-ahead blast, which was immediately followed by a solo shot off the bat of teammate Jake Lamb. Castillo finished the night 3-for-5 and scored three runs. He has been a tremendous addition to the Diamondbacks, hitting .293 (34-for-116) with nine homers and 20 RBI in just 36 games.
Aug 1 - 12:04 AM

Josh Donaldson drove in four runs in Friday's 7-6 win over the Royals, including a walk-off RBI single in the 11th.

Donaldson had a two-run double in the third inning before knocking in another run with a double in the seventh. The game-winning rally in the 11th was set up after Troy Tulowitzki reached on a one-out single and moved over to second base on a balk by Frankin Morales. Donaldson then laced a single to left field to end it. The 29-year-old continues to have a monster year, batting .295/.358/.550 with 25 homers and 73 RBI.

Making his Royals debut, Johnny Cueto allowed three runs over six innings in a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Friday.

Cueto didn't have his best command in his first start with his new club, but it was good enough for a quality start. He gave up seven hits and walked a pair while striking out seven batters. The new Royals' ace will get the Tigers next time out.
Jul 31 - 11:43 PM

Manny Machado blasted his 22nd home run of the season on Friday, powering the Orioles to a come-from-behind 8-7 victory over the Tigers.

The Orioles fell behind 6-0 after the first four innings, but never gave up. Adam Jones clobbered a three-run homer in the fifth inning to cut the deficit to two runs, then Machado's two-run shot in the sixth put the O's on top to stay. Machado finished the night 2-for-3 plus a walk with a pair of runs scored and two RBI. He is now slashing a mighty impressive .293/.364/.518 with 22 homers and 54 RBI on the year.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss announced Friday that John Axford has been removed from his role as the team's closer.

Weiss said Friday, "I had a conversation with John a little earlier and I told him I was going to get him out of that ninth inning for a little bit and let him catch his breath". He has blown four saves in his last five appearances and has had difficulty finding the strike zone. Rafael Betancourt and Tommy Kahnle are the two most likely candidates to take over the role.

Clayton Kershaw was scratched from his scheduled start on Friday due to his hip issue.

The same ailment scratched him on Wednesday. He is now scheduled to start on Saturday after an extra day of rest. Zack Greinke will start in his place against the Angels on Friday.
