Nate McLouth declared himself fine on Sunday, after X-rays on his injured knee came back negative.

McLouth indicated that his knee was a little sore, but that he believed he could return to the lineup for Tuesday's series opener against the Red Sox in Boston. Fantasy owners may want to have a backup option available though, just in case the O's decide to give him a few extra days to rest.

Yankees designated RHP David Carpenter for assignment.

Carpenter has struggled this season, holding a 4.82 ERA with just 11 strikeouts over 18 2/3 innings. His velocity has been fine, though, so it's a surprise to see the Yankees give up on him considering his 2.63 ERA and over a strikeout per frame across the previous two seasons. The Yanks should be able to find a trade partner for him.

Yankees activated RHP Masahiro Tanaka from the 15-day disabled list.

Tanaka will rejoin the rotation on Wednesday against the Mariners and is slated for 80-85 pitches. The right-hander missed the last five and a half weeks with a right forearm strain and right wrist tendinitis. He remains a big health risk but obviously needs to be played by fantasy owners while he's on the mound.

Cameron Maybin (groin) is back in the Braves' lineup Wednesday.

Maybin sat out the last two contests with a minor groin injury but is ready to go now. He sports a nice .290/.371/.409 batting line for Atlanta this season.

Ryan Braun has flown to Los Angeles in order to receive another cryotherapy shot in his right thumb.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said it's a pre-planned thing rather than Braun having a setback. Obviously, it's something to keep a close eye on, though, with Braun having hit just .194/.242/.226 over his last seven games. It's possible he'll be ready to play by Friday, but Counsell isn't counting on Braun until Sunday.

Josh Hamilton (hamstring) is expected to sit out again Wednesday.

Hamilton is dealing with some tightness in his left hamstring and will miss a second straight game. It's not viewed as a big deal, as the outfielder remains day-to-day.

A.J. Griffin (elbow) allowed just one hit while striking out three over three scoreless frames in his first rehab start with High-A Stockton.

Griffin had to be shut down a bit after developing some shoulder soreness, but he's back on track now. Working his way back from Tommy John surgery, the right-hander figures to need a full 30 days on a rehab assignment, putting him on pace to rejoin the A's rotation in early July.

Mets activated RHP Dillon Gee from the 15-day disabled list.

He'll rejoin the rotation on Wednesday in San Diego as the Mets go to a six-man rotation. Gee holds a 3.86 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over five starts this season and has missed the last month with a strained groin.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Red Sox have acquired Alejandro De Aza from the Orioles.

There's no word yet on what the Orioles will be getting in return or how much of what's remaining on his $5 million contract they might be picking up. De Aza was designated for assignment by Baltimore last Friday after batting just .214/.277/.359 over 30 games. Boston certainly isn't an ideal landing spot for him given all the other outfield options that they have.

Austin Jackson reached base six times, as he was hit by a pitch, drew a walk, had four hits, and stole a base in Tuesday's 11-inning loss to the Yankees.

Jackson raised his OPS from .599 to .665 with the effort. He scored once, in the third inning on a Nelson Cruz single to tie the game at 1-1. He then gave the Mariners a temporary 2-1 lead in the sixth with an RBI double. Jackson may be starting to heat up as he's on a six-game hitting streak.

Garrett Jones went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run, helping the Yankees take down the Mariners in 11 innings on Tuesday.

Reliever Joe Beimel came in to face Jones with two men aboard in the 11th inning and Jones made him pay, sending the lefty's offering over the fence in right-center with plenty of room to spare. Jones has otherwise not done much in 62 plate appearances for the Yankees, batting .254/.290/.407 with two home runs and seven RBI.

Andrew McCutchen finished a home run shy of the cycle, going 4-for-5 with two RBI as the Pirates won against the Giants on Tuesday.

McCutchen is a ball of hot fire right now, as Tuesday's effort marked his sixth multi-hit game in his last 11 contests. He knocked in a run in the third inning with a single and padded the Pirates' lead with an RBI double in the ninth. McCutchen's early-season struggles are in the rear-view mirror now, as he's hitting .292/.379/.497 with seven home runs and 32 RBI. If there is one complaint, it's that he hasn't been very active on the base paths -- he has only three stolen bases in five attempts to date after going 18-for-21 last year.
