Max Scherzer dominated the Athletics in Game 1 of the ALDS on Friday, racking up 11 strikeouts over seven strong innings en route to a victory.

Scherzer surrendered two runs on just three hits on the night while walking two. The only opposing hitter who gave him any trouble was Yoenis Cespedes, who tripled and was stranded in the second inning, then blasted a mammoth two-run homer in the seventh to pull the A’s to within a run at 3-2. The 29-year-old right-hander, and favorite for the AL Cy Young award, would get the ball again if the series is forced to a do-or-die Game 5 scenario in Oakland on Thursday.

Tyler Clippard has been added to the National League All-Star team.

It's not clear whose spot he's taking, but there are four NL starters Sunday that need to be replaced. There are others that are more deserving, but there's no doubt Clippard has had a great year, posting a 2.03 ERA with 53 strikeouts over 40 innings.

Rockies activated LHP Brett Anderson from the 60-day disabled list.

Anderson will make his return to the Rockies' rotation on Sunday against the Twins after missing three months with a fractured left index finger. Fantasy owners should probably give him a start or two to knock the rust off.

Cliff Lee (elbow) is on track to rejoin the Phillies' rotation on July 21 versus the Giants.

He originally had been pegged for a July 19 return, but the Phils will apparently give him a couple extra days. Lee will make what will be his final rehab start at High-A Clearwater on Monday, provided he doesn't have a setback. He has allowed three runs over six innings in his first two rehab outings.

Dan Uggla has been suspended by the Braves for one game.

There's no official word on what the suspension is for, but David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution is hearing it's for tardiness. It was O'Brien that reported Uggla could be designated for assignment, but evidently the club isn't ready to make that move yet. Uggla has received just 20 at-bats since May 23 and has one hit over that time.

Derek Holland (knee) isn't expected to rejoin the Rangers' rotation until late August or early September.

Holland hasn't been shy about saying that he thinks he's ready to return now, but the Rangers are proceeding extra cautiously with the left-hander. He's been sent to the team's spring training facility and will throw three more live batting practice sessions before being re-evaluated. It's possible he'll begin a rehab assignment after that. "That is the way we planned it right now," pitching coach Mike Maddux said. "When you put stuff on paper, you’re conservative. If he accelerates it, that’s good. But we don’t want to do too much too soon and have a setback. There is a difference between throwing on the side and throwing in game conditions. You can’t simulate game conditions."

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Red Sox have received trade inquiries on Mike Napoli.

Given their lack of right-handed power and the fact that Napoli is under contract next season, they seem unlikely to move him. Napoli also has a limited no-trade clause. However, it's always possible someone will blow the Red Sox away with an offer. If the club did move Napoli, they could transition Will Middlebrooks over to first base.

Gerrit Cole (lat) will throw a 20-25 pitch bullpen session on Thursday.

The Pirates are taking it one step at a time with the young right-hander, as they won't decide what next to do with Cole until after Thursday's side session. We do know that Cole will not return on July 20 when first eligible, but a timetable has yet to be mapped out. He's dealing with tightness in his right lat.

Pirates activated LHP Francisco Liriano from the 15-day disabled list.

Liriano will make his return to the Pirates' rotation on Sunday against the Reds after missing a month with a strained left oblique. He held a 4.60 ERA before going on the DL but is probably worth starting in fantasy leagues immediately against a Reds lineup that's missing a couple key pieces.

Evan Gattis (back) could begin a rehab assignment with High-A Rome as soon as Tuesday.

Gattis took batting practice Friday for the first time since landing on the disabled list last month with a bulging thoracic disc in his back. He felt good and is almost ready for game action. "He’ll do the same (workout) today, and then just keep ramping him up that way," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Saturday morning. "(Rome) doesn’t play Monday; they play Tuesday. But we haven’t talked about any of that (rehab assignment) stuff yet. Maybe he comes in today and it’s gotten a little sore and (he says) I don’t want to do all that stuff. But I think it was encouraging what he was able to do (Friday)."

An MRI taken Saturday morning on the right arm of Jordan Zimmermann showed a biceps strain.

The good news is Zimmermann has no structural damage and might be able to avoid a disabled list stint (with the help of the All-Star break). The right-hander left his start Friday night against the Phillies with what was initially labeled a biceps cramp. He wraps up the first half of the season with a 3.03 ERA and 1.21 WHIP.

Drew Pomeranz (hand) allowed one run over four innings Saturday in his rehab debut at Triple-A Sacramento.

He struck out seven, walked none, and yielded just one hit -- a solo home run. The left-hander is expected to remain at Sacramento when he's deemed healthy as an emergency option for the Oakland rotation. He's been out since June 17 with a broken right hand.
