Michael Cuddyer is back in the Rockies' lineup Tuesday.

Cuddyer had to leave Monday's game with a right elbow contusion after slamming into the right field wall. He's surely still sore but is feeling well enough to give it a go. Cuddyer is playing first base, with Justin Morneau getting a night off.

Daniel Norris, making his Tigers debut, allowed a lone run to the Orioles in 7 1/3 innings on Sunday.

Norris, a highly-regarded pitching prospect, was acquired from the Blue Jays in the David Price trade. The lefty held the O's to four hits and a walk while striking out five. Norris had mixed results in five starts in April for the Jays, but owns a 3.23 ERA on the year with a 1.30 WHIP and a 23/13 K/BB ratio in 30 2/3 innings. He'll look to keep it going in a home start against the Red Sox next.

J.D. Martinez went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run as the Tigers fended off the Orioles on Sunday.

Martinez gave starter Daniel Norris some early run support when he drove a Ubaldo Jimenez offering over the fence in center field for a three-run home run. He suffered a scare on Saturday, when he left after fouling a ball off his knee. His performance Sunday was heartening for the Tigers. Martinez is batting .288/.347/.561 with 29 home runs and 71 RBI.

R.A. Dickey assisted in Sunday's defeat of the Royals by tossing seven scoreless innings, earning his sixth win of the season.

Dickey limited the Royals to two hits and two walks while striking out six. Things escalated after he left as there was a benches-clearing incident between the two teams, spurred by teammate and reliever Aaron Sanchez. At any rate, Dickey lowered his ERA to 4.06 and owns a 1.24 WHIP with a 90/49 K/BB ratio in 144 innings. He's held the opposition to two or fewer runs in five consecutive starts, a trend he'll hope to continue over the weekend at Yankee Stadium.

Adeiny Hechavarria ended Sunday's 5-2 win over the Padres with a walk-off three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Padres reliever Brandon Maurer was his own worst enemy on Sunday, walking two in the ninth inning before serving up the three-run homer with one out. The homer was Hechavarria's fifth of the season. He's hitting .279/.311/.375 with the five taters and 42 RBI. Most of that production came in April and he's cooled off after a hot start.
Aug 2 - 4:41 PM

Charlie Morton got the win on Sunday after delivering seven scoreless innings against the Reds.

Morton scattered five hits, didn't issue a walk, and struck out seven in the effort, which featured both benches emptying. The right-hander needed the start, as he had struggled in his previous three outings. He's currently sitting on a 4.19 ERA, a 1.28 WHIP, and a 48/24 K/BB ratio over 77 1/3 innings. Morton starts at home against the Dodgers next.

Jose Fernandez was almost unhittable in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Padres, striking out 10 and throwing six innings of shutout baseball.

Fernandez allowed just four hits. The only one that went for extra bases was an Alexi Amarista triple. Amarista would not come around to score, as Fernandez was having none of that. The 10 strikeouts were one off of his season high, which he set two starts ago against the Diamondbacks. Despite Sunday's brilliance, he came away with a no-decision, as the Marlins wouldn't seal the win until the bottom of the ninth inning. Since returning from the disabled list in early July, Fernandez is 5-0 with a 2.13 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 47/9 K/BB ratio across 38 innings. He'll take to the road against the Braves as he tries to keep this run going.

Kris Bryant left Sunday's game against the Brewers with an apparent injury to his head/neck area.

Bryant injured himself on a head-first slide into second base. He was able to walk off the field under his own power and looked to be OK, so perhaps the Cubs were just being cautious here. They should offer more on the third baseman's status later Sunday.
Aug 2 - 3:55 PM

The Indians are considering placing Jason Kipnis (shoulder) on the disabled list.

Kipnis is not playing Sunday after being limited to designated hitter duty of late because of soreness in his right shoulder. The results of an MRI he had Sunday haven't been revealed, but it's evidently bad enough that the club thinks the second baseman could need at least a couple weeks off. Manager Terry Francona said he would talk things over with the medical staff and general manager Chris Antonetti before a decision is made.
Aug 2 - 2:08 PM

Joe Panik is not in Sunday's lineup due to nagging back stiffness.

Panik played the last two days after missing two games with a stiff back, but now he's on the bench again. Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that the infielder should be available off the bench, but he doesn't expect to start him for a few days. Ehire Adrianza will get another start at second base Sunday.
Aug 2 - 1:53 PM

Chase Utley (ankle) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday.

Utley has been ramping up baseball activities since the All-Star break and is now ready to test things out in game action. He's hitting just .179/.257/.275 this season but reportedly discovered a mechanical flaw in his swing that he thinks was caused by his nagging ankle injury. Utley could be an August trade candidate if he turns things around at the plate.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle writes that it's possible Jesse Hahn (forearm) "will remain shut down."

The A's said in mid-July that Hahn, who is battling right forearm inflammation, would be shut down for at least a month. Given that they're out of playoff contention, it's possible they'll play it safe and just shut the righty down for the rest of the season. Forearm injuries often wind up leading to Tommy John surgery, and Hahn has already had the operation once.
