Bud Norris was scratched from Friday's start due to right elbow soreness.

Norris initially felt some soreness last month but had been feeling better until it flared up again during a bullpen session. It doesn't sound like he'll undergo any tests, as the Orioles seem confident that he'll feel better after some rest. Jason Hammel has assumed Norris' spot in the rotation.

Rockies placed C Wilin Rosario on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 23, with left wrist inflammation.

Rosario wasn't making swift enough progress from his sore left wrist, but it's not believed to be a major injury and he should be ready to return as soon as he is eligible. Rosario owns a disappointing .687 OPS with 10 home runs and 43 RBI in 91 games this year. He had an .801 OPS, 21 homers, and 79 RBI in 121 games last year.

Xander Bogaerts (concussion) has been cleared to return to the Red Sox active roster on Saturday.

Bogaerts was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list last weekend, but he's been symptom-free since Monday and officially passed MLB's protocols on Wednesday. Bogaerts will try to finish the 2014 season on a positive note. He's batted just .223/.293/.333 so far.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman was told Wednesday that there is "nothing at the moment going on with" the Astros and 2014 top overall pick Brady Aiken.

Kiley McDaniel of FanGraphs reported last week that the Astros might still be able to strike a deal with Aiken, even though the July 18 deadline to sign draft picks has long since passed. But that was apparently a misunderstanding. Heyman hears that the Astros are trying to work something out with Jacob Nix, a fifth-round pick who went unsigned after the Aiken negotiations fell through. Nix filed a grievance, and would seem to have a pretty solid case.

Manny Machado underwent surgery Wednesday to repair a partially-torn ligament in his right knee.

Doctors said nothing unusual was found and that the procedure went according to plan. Machado is hoping to be ready for the start of spring training next year, though that's not necessarily guaranteed to happen. This is the second season in a row he's been shut down early by a major knee injury.

Athletics recalled LHP Drew Pomeranz from Triple-A Sacramento.

Pomeranz will start for the A's on Wednesday night against the Astros. He had a strong 2.91 ERA and 48/23 K/BB ratio in 55 2/3 innings before being demoted in July and makes for a good fantasy streamer in Houston.

Michael Wacha (shoulder) has been cleared to make his first rehab start Sunday at Double-A Springfield.

Wacha tossed a successful simulated game on Wednesday afternoon and is now ready to face live-game competition. The 23-year-old right-hander could be back in the Cardinals' starting rotation around the middle of September. He has been out since June 22 because of a stress reaction in his throwing shoulder.

Adam Wainwright revealed Wednesday that he's been going through a "dead arm" phase.

Wainwright lost again Wednesday versus the Pirates and finished with a 5.17 ERA in six August outings. He entered the month with a 1.92 mark. The good news is that the tall right-hander thinks he's just about over the hump, saying he's "ready for September." The Cardinals could certainly use the first-half version of their ace in the final month.

Ike Davis launched his second home run in as many days in Wednesday's victory over the Cardinals.

After belting a go-ahead, pinch-hit, three-run homer Tuesday, Davis got the start Wednesday and deposited an Adam Wainwright mistake well over the right-center field wall for a two-run shot in the second inning. The two runs wound up being all Jeff Locke and the Pirates' bullpen needed. Davis figures to see regular time against righties at first base if Pedro Alvarez (foot) is out a while.

Yankees signed OF Chris Young to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Young was cut loose by the Mets earlier this month after batting just .205/.283/.346 with eight homers and 28 RBI over 254 at-bats. He's bottomed out offensively and is no longer great defensively, but at the league minimum Young is worth a shot. He figures to join the big league roster next month.
Aug 27 - 3:40 PM

David Wright (neck) remained out of the Mets' lineup Wednesday.

Wright is nursing some neck spasms and has also admitted that his left shoulder is still an issue. He's remains day-to-day for now. Eric Campbell is handling third base again Wednesday.
Aug 27 - 3:13 PM

David Ortiz is back in the Red Sox' lineup Wednesday.

Ortiz missed the previous two contests after fouling a ball off his right foot on Sunday, but he's obviously feeling better. Big Papi is hitting .265/.362/.524 with 30 homers and 93 RBI for the Red Sox this season.
