Jason Heyward is expected to be sidelined for 4-6 weeks after an X-ray on his right jaw revealed a fracture.

Heyward was hit in the jaw by a Jon Niese pitch during Wednesday's game, resulting in a pair of fractures. He'll undergo surgery in Atlanta Thursday. It's obviously a big blow for the Braves, but luckily they have a big cushion in the National League East. Heyward should be back late in the season and be fine for the playoffs. B.J. Upton, Jordan Schafer and Evan Gattis will see more at-bats with Heyward out.

Dustin Pedroia was displaying concussion-like symptoms after leaving Saturday's loss to the Rays.

Pedroia got hit in the head by Kevin Kiermaier's forearm in a nasty second-inning collision. He's scheduled to see a doctor in Tampa on Sunday morning and seems likely to placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Jake Odorizzi delivered seven shutout innings Saturday in the Rays' 7-0 win over the Red Sox.

It was a complete turnaround for the young right-hander, who got pummeled for eight runs in four innings Monday by the Orioles. Odorizzi allowed just one Boston hit and struck out seven Boston batters. He'll bring a 10-11 record, 4.03 ERA, and 1.28 WHIP into his next outing at home against the Blue Jays. Consistency remains an issue, but Odorizzi can look truly dominant at times. He has whiffed 163 batters in 147 1/3 innings this year.

Jarred Cosart fired seven shutout innings Saturday in the Marlins' 4-0 blanking of the Braves.

Cosart scattered seven hits and a walk over his seven dominant frames, striking out five. He struggled in his first start with the Marlins back on August 1, but the trade deadline acquisition has been dominant since. He's now 3-1 with a 1.64 ERA in a Miami uniform.

Scott Feldman tossed his first shutout of the season Saturday as the Astros beat the Rangers 2-0.

Feldman carved his way easily through the Texas lineup, allowing only three hits and a walk while striking out five. He's been a disappointment for the most part in his first year of a three-year, $30 million contract, but this outing was truly dominant. Feldman will carry an 8-10 record, 4.09 ERA, and 1.41 WHIP into his next start on the road against the A's.

Orioles acquired OF Alejandro De Aza from the White Sox for RHPs Miguel Chalas and Mark Blackmar.

De Aza has good speed and can play all three outfield positions, making him a nice addition to the Baltimore bench for the stretch run. The 30-year-old was batting .243/.309/.354 with 15 stolen bases in 122 games this season for the White Sox. He'll be arbitration-eligible for the third and final time this winter. Chalas and Blackmar are non-prospects.

Miguel Cabrera made an early exit from the second half of Saturday's doubleheader with the White Sox after appearing to aggravate his lingering right ankle injury.

It was overly ambitious of the Tigers to think that Cabrera -- who has been limping around for weeks -- could gut it out for both games. He looked to be in serious discomfort on a groundout in the top of the fourth inning and did not take the field for the bottom of the fourth. Cabrera can probably be considered day-to-day through the rest of 2014.

Mark Melancon picked up his 26th save of the season Saturday in the Pirates' 3-2 defeat of the Reds.

Melancon retired all three batters he faced in the top of the ninth inning, one via strikeout. He owns a dominant 2.04 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, and 54/9 K/BB ratio in 57 1/3 frames this season for the Bucs.

Hanley Ramirez (leg) is in the Dodgers' starting lineup Saturday night against the Padres.

Hanley was not on the original lineup card, but he felt good in a pregame workout so manager Don Mattingly gave him the go-ahead. Ramirez suffered a minor left leg injury Friday in the Dodgers' 12th-inning loss.

Omar Infante (shoulder) is back in the Royals' starting lineup Saturday night against the Indians.

Infante had been sidelined since Monday with a lingering right shoulder injury and acknowledged Saturday that he is still experiencing discomfort. But the veteran second baseman wants to play through the pain as the Royals try to reach the playoffs for the first time since 1985. "It’s not going to subside," manager Ned Yost said. "Forget it subsiding. He’s probably at about 80 percent right now, which is good enough to play."
Aug 30 - 6:14 PM

Matt Garza (oblique) has been cleared to rejoin the Brewers' rotation Wednesday versus the Cubs.

Garza, out since August 4 with a left oblique strain, threw all of his pitches in a successful simulated game Friday evening in San Francisco. Jimmy Nelson was optioned to the minors on Saturday afternoon and will return as a reliever when rosters expand, freeing up a rotation spot for Garza.
Aug 30 - 6:00 PM

Coco Crisp is not in the A's lineup Saturday.

Crisp came up sore after crashing into the center field wall Friday while trying to rob Chris Iannetta of a home run. Sam Fuld is leading off and Craig Gentry is playing center on Saturday night against the Angels.
