Grant Balfour told Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle after the Orioles pulled their two-year offer that he's "100 percent fine" physically.

The O's called off the $15 million deal due to concerns about Balfour's right shoulder, but the reliever said MRIs on the shoulder look the same now as they did three years ago. "I'm the All-Star pitcher I was last season," Balfour said. "My shoulder is fine, everything is fine. I'm ready to come out there in the ninth inning, do what I do." Baltimore is known for putting players through extremely extensive physicals prior to signing them, so this could be a case of them being overly cautious. Still, it might wind up costing Balfour a decent chunk of change.

Denard Span (back) underwent an MRI on Tuesday and is set to see a specialist as he attempts to pinpoint the cause of recent back spasms.

Span's back locked up after a rain delay during Monday's game. He underwent an MRI on Tuesday and will see a back specialist. For now, he should be considered day-to-day. The injury is well-timed, if there is such a thing, as the All-Star Break will afford Span a chunk of rest as he looks to avoid hitting the disabled list.

Jayson Werth (wrist) is hopeful that he'll be able to begin a rehab assignment after the All-Star Break.

Werth has been swinging with a fungo bat as he steadily works his way back from a fractured wrist suffered earlier in the year. Nationals manager Matt Williams has said that Werth is making "significant progress." Assuming a rehab assignment is on the horizon, it's possible that Werth could return to the team in early August.

The Rangers have come to terms on a contract with international free agent INF Andy Ibanez.

Ibanez is 22 years old. He hit .283/.348/.419 with 13 homers in the last three seasons in Cuba. Known more for his glove than his bat at this time, he'll likely spend some time in the Ranger minor league system as the team looks to develop him. The terms of the contract have not yet been made public.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that Andrew Miller (forearm) will be activated Wednesday.

Miller allowed two hits and struck out one batter in a scoreless inning Monday in a minor league rehab appearance with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The southpaw has been out for a month with a left forearm strain, but one appearance is all he needed to convince the Yankees that he was ready. Dellin Betances has been handling save chances, but Girardi said that it's likely Miller will be moved back into the closer role upon his return.

Kolten Wong left Tuesday's game against the Cubs in the seventh inning with a head contusion.

Wong appeared shaken up after making a diving catch to end the fifth inning. He stayed in the game initially, but apparently wasn't feeling right. It's unclear if he'll be checked out for a concussion, but the Cardinals should pass along an update soon.
Jul 7 - 3:42 PM

Yunel Escobar (hamstring) is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Reds.

Escobar is getting a day off after leaving Monday's game with left hamstring tightness. Danny Espinosa will start at third base while Dan Uggla plays second base.
Jul 7 - 3:19 PM

Denard Span (back) is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Reds.

Span left Monday's game with back spasms. It's been a lingering issue for him, but he can be considered day-to-day right now. Michael Taylor will start in center field and hit leadoff Tuesday while Matt den Dekker will play left.
Jul 7 - 3:16 PM

Brewers activated OF Khris Davis from the 15-day disabled list.

He'll start in left field Tuesday night against the Braves. Davis has been out since late May with a torn meniscus in his right knee. He returns to a .250/.337/.446 batting line with five homers and 16 RBI over 46 games.
Jul 7 - 3:03 PM

Starling Marte (oblique) is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Padres.

Marte left Sunday's game with discomfort in his left side and will now miss his second straight start. He's considered day-to-day right now, but fantasy owners would be wise to have a backup plan this week. Sean Rodriguez will start in left field Tuesday.
Jul 7 - 2:45 PM

Rays placed OF Steven Souza on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 6, with a right pinkie finger laceration.

Souza suffered the injury when he was hit by a pitch on Sunday. The good news is that he's not dealing with a fracture or tendon damage, but he'll get some extended rest. The 26-year-old is batting .210/.301/.417 with 15 homers, 33 RBI, and 10 steals over 79 games this season.
Jul 7 - 11:13 AM

Rays activated C John Jaso from the 60-day disabled list.

Jaso has been out since Opening Day with a bruised left wrist, but he's finally back to 100 percent. He figures to see semi-regular at-bats out of the DH spot, which makes him a sneaky add in deeper fantasy leagues.
