Jonathan Broxton (elbow) is expected to be placed back on the disabled list.

Broxton is having more elbow issues, though this time the pain is in a different spot. The big righty noted that the discomfort "felt like a knife in the belly of my forearm." He'll undergo an MRI, but it sure sounds like surgery might be coming.

Martin Prado delivered a walk-off RBI single, his third RBI of the night, as the Yankees edged the White Sox 4-3 on Friday.

Prado hit a two-run homer in the third inning, and with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the ninth he came through with a single off White Sox reliever Daniel Webb. Prado finished the night 2-for-5 with those three RBI. He's now hitting .242 with three home runs since joining the Yankees after hitting five through the season's first four months.

Ben Revere went 3-for-4 with two runs scored in the Phillies' 5-4 win over the Cardinals on Friday.

Revere is quietly second in the National League with a .315 batting average after Friday's three-hit night. He's got multiple hits in four of his last six games, including three or more hits in three of those contests. Revere has scored 56 runs atop the Phillies lineup this year.

Drew Smyly pitched a complete game shutout in guiding the Rays to a 8-0 win over the Blue Jays on Friday.

It was simply a dominant effort for the new Ray. Smyly allowed only two hits in pitching his first complete game of the 2014 season. After a subpar first start with the Rays, Smyly has put it together, allowing no runs over seven-plus innings against the Rangers, two runs over seven innings against the Yankees, and the complete game shutout on Friday over the Blue Jays. The only hits Smyly allowed were singles by Jose Reyes and Steve Tolleson. Smyly will take his ever-lowering 3.42 ERA against the Orioles in his next start.

Xander Bogaerts is being evaluated for a concussion after a HBP in the head on Friday.

Bogaerts initially stayed in the game after being hit in the head by a Felix Hernandez pitch, but he left an inning later. The shortstop was 0-for-1 before leaving. The club should have more information on his injury and availability in the coming days.

Brad Peacock left Friday's start against the Indians with an undisclosed injury.

Peacock had been pretty good, holding the Indians to one run on two hits over five innings, before leaving with assistant athletic trainer Rex Jones before the bottom of the sixth inning. Peacock had thrown only 62 pitches before exiting. The Astros should provide an update shortly.

A source tells Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports that Manny Machado is expected to have season-ending knee surgery within a week.

Machado has been on the disabled list since August 12 with a sprained ligament in his right knee, and Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday that the third baseman had no timetable for resuming baseball activities. It's a huge loss for the first-place Orioles, who will now have to rely more heavily on Chris Davis and others to fill the position. Machado's season got off to a late start after left knee surgery last season, playing in just 82 games this year.

Jake Arrieta held his former team to one run across seven innings in Friday's 4-1 victory over the Orioles.

He retired the first 13 batters of the game and wound up striking out five while permitting just four hits and one walk. The lone blemish on Arrieta's record was a solo shot in the seventh inning from Nelson Cruz that just barely left the yard. He's allowed just three runs over his last three starts to lower his ERA to 2.53. Arrieta will try to keep it going next week in Cincinnati.

Javier Baez belted a solo homer in Friday's win over the Orioles.

Kevin Gausman had made Baez look pretty silly earlier in the at-bat in the fifth inning, but he hung a 3-2 slider and the young infielder launched it over the bleachers in left field and onto Waveland Avenue. We've seen the good and the bad so far with Baez, as he has an ugly 31/4 K/BB ratio but is also one of just 10 active players with six home runs in his first 18 games.

Anibal Sanchez (pectoral) threw on flat ground Friday.

It's the first time he's done any throwing since he landed on the disabled list earlier this month with a strained right pectoral muscle. Sanchez will play catch again on Saturday and eventually progress to mound work, though it's not clear when that will take place. He's not expected back until mid-September.

Kyle Lohse (ankle) will rejoin the Brewers' rotation on Monday in San Diego.

Lohse hasn't started since August 13 due to a sprained right ankle. He probably could have returned by now, as his throwing program wasn't interrupted, but the Brewers could afford to take it slowly with him with Jimmy Nelson and Mike Fiers pitching so well.
Aug 22 - 5:21 PM

Michael Cuddyer (hamstring) isn't expected to return to the lineup until at least Sunday.

Cuddyer had been expected to return Friday, but his hamstring remains more swollen than expected. "I'm not going on the DL," Cuddyer said. "You can put that in bold letters." Charlie Blackmon is in right field Friday, with Drew Stubbs handling center.
