Justin Verlander underwent successful core muscle repair surgery on Thursday morning.

That's the exact announcement from the Tigers' official Twitter feed. "We fully anticipate Justin to participate in spring training and be in a position to compete at the beginning of the 2014 season," general manager Dave Dombrowski wrote in a statement. Verlander's rehab is only expected to take six weeks, but that will still put him behind the other pitchers in Tigers camp and his streak of Opening Day starts could very well be in jeopardy. He apparently injured himself during a December workout.

Bryce Harper is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

It's a rare day off for the slugger. Chris Heisey is handling right field in his place. The Nats also have Michael Taylor in center field and Trea Turner in the leadoff spot, as Ben Revere is on the bench.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Pirates are "among the teams evaluating" Matt Moore and Jake Odorizzi.

Tyler Glasnow (shoulder) and Chad Kuhl (biceps) both went down with injuries Saturday, which is surely related to the Pirates being in the market for a starter. They'll have some competition, as Moore and Odorizzi are both hot commodities, especially with it being a relatively light market for starting pitching.

Pirates placed RHP Tyler Glasnow on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder injury.

Glasnow departed Saturday's start against the Phillies with a sore shoulder. It's unclear at this point whether he might be dealing with any structural issues, but obviously the Pirates don't want to take any chances here. The club could offer more on a potential timetable for Glasnow later Sunday.

Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News was told by a Mets source that Lucas Duda (back) likely wouldn't return "until late August at best."

Duda has resumed running, swinging and throwing as he works his way back from a stress fracture in his back, although he's only taken dry swings to this point. While things appear to be on track, he obviously has a ways to go. "I think it’s a progression. I just started hitting today," Duda said. "We are progressing on the right track, so I will take it."

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Nationals "could be a favorite" to land Aroldis Chapman.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported Saturday that the Yankees are telling teams they are close to dealing Chapman and Heyman says the reliever is the Nats' main target at the trade deadline. It appears that something could get done soon, although Heyman notes that the Yanks are targeting Joe Ross in a deal but the Nats are "disinclined to trade him."

White Sox manager Robin Ventura on Saturday wouldn't say when Chris Sale would make his next start.

Sale was scratched from Saturday's start and sent home after a dust-up with the front office regarding throwback uniforms that he didn't want to wear. "I'll talk about the game, but any of that stuff, we'll wait on that," Ventura said. "I'm not going to discuss what went on in there. But (it's) unfortunate he didn't start tonight. Proud of the guys who filled in." Jose Quintana will start as scheduled on Sunday. Miguel Gonzalez is currently slated to take the ball Monday, although that seems like a spot Sale could easily slide into, assuming he and the front office work out their issues. The left-hander might be traded prior to the deadline.

Zack Greinke (oblique) threw a 45-pitch bullpen session Saturday.

Greinke came out of the session with no issues. Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said that the club is still determining what the next step will be for Greinke, although it's possible he's ready to make a rehab start. A return in early August is looking likely if he can avoid a setback.

Miguel Sano went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI as the Twins outlasted the Red Sox 11-9 on Saturday.

Sano had three of the team's 19 hits, including his solo home run in the eighth inning. The dinger was his 15th of the season and his fourth in the month of July. It has been a good month all around for the 23-year-old, who is hitting .251/.349/.474 in his first full season in the bigs.

Trevor Story stuffed the box score on Saturday, going 4-for-4 with two home runs, five RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base.

He hit a two-run homer in the second inning, then added a solo shot in the eighth. The rookie now has 26 longballs on the season, which is a lot more than he ever hit in a minor league season. He is batting .272/.347/.580 with 63 runs, 67 RBI and seven steals. He has an extremely high strikeout rate, but that has not interfered with his stellar overall production yet.

Kendall Graveman tossed a complete game and held the Rays to three runs as the Athletics won in walk-off fashion by a score of 4-3 on Saturday.

It was his first complete game of the season and only the second of his career. He finished the game on an efficient 102 pitches after allowing nine hits and one walk. He fanned four batters. He now has a 7-6 record and 4.15 ERA in 110 2/3 innings spread across 19 starts.
Jul 24 - 12:36 AM

Adrian Beltre went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run to help the Rangers best the Royals 7-4 on Saturday.

Beltre also had a double in the game, but it was his big fly with two runners on in the seventh inning that put the game out of reach. The home run was his 14th of the year, giving him 60 RBI and 49 runs scored. The seemingly ageless third baseman is batting .271/.326/.446 overall.
