Adam Jones doubled twice and scored two runs, including the game-winning run in the 10th inning, as the Orioles beat the Mariners 3-2 on Sunday.

Jones doubled and scored in the eighth and 10th innings, finishing 2-for-5. He'd had just two doubles all month prior to the game. His 61 runs scored are 10th-most in the American League, and the outfielder is hitting .293/.321/.487 with 19 home runs and 64 RBI overall.

Mookie Betts worked out Sunday and Monday and didn't experience any concussion-related symptoms.

"He had a good day Sunday," said Red Sox manager John Farrell. "Another good day [Monday] with the increase of physical activity. There's no reproducing of the concussion symptoms right now." Betts will travel with the Red Sox to Detroit this weekend, so it sounds like he could be activated later this week.

Josh Reddick (back) was a late scratch from the Athletics' lineup Tuesday.

Reddick had been slated to return to action after sitting out Monday with lower back soreness, but apparently he's not quite ready yet. Mark Canha replaced him in right field.
Aug 4 - 8:08 PM

Justin Upton (thumb) is absent from the Padres' lineup Tuesday.

Upton exited Monday's game with a bruised right thumb. The ailment doesn't seem to be serious, but he could require a few days of rest. Will Venable is in left field Tuesday, with Melvin Upton handling center.

Rockies purchased the contract of RHP Jon Gray from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Gray will make his major league debut on Tuesday night against the visiting Mariners after weeks of speculation that he was on the verge of a callup. The 23-year-old right-hander was sporting a 2.90 ERA and 82 strikeouts over his last 80 2/3 innings at Triple-A and could have value as a matchups-to-matchups play down the stretch. He's not a great fantasy bet in his debut against the M's at Coors Field.

Red Sox purchased the contract of RHP Henry Owens from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Owens will make his major league debut on Tuesday night against the rival Yankees. The 23-year-old right-hander had registered a 3.16 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 103/56 K/BB ratio through 122 1/3 innings this season at Pawtucket and is worth a try in most mixed fantasy leagues. He was the No. 19 prospect on MLB.com's top 100 this winter.

Rangers optioned OF Leonys Martin to Triple-A Round Rock.

Martin has batted just .220/.265/.314 in 309 plate appearances this season for the Rangers, who will hope that a short demotion to the minors gets him going like it did for second baseman Rougned Odor. Delino DeShields Jr. has been serving as Texas' starting center fielder.

Tigers owner Mike Ilitch has fired general manager Dave Dombrowski.

Al Avila is taking over as the club's new GM and executive vice president of baseball operations. "I've decided to release Dave from his contract in order to afford him the time to pursue other career opportunities," Ilitch wrote in a statement to the media. "I feel this is the right time for the Tigers to move forward under new leadership." Detroit is in the midst of a highly dissapointing 2015 season and became sudden sellers at last week's trade deadline, but the firing is still a shock. Dombrowski had an incredible run of regular-season success with the Tigers, winning four straight AL Central titles between 2011-2014.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has ruled out Michael Pineda (forearm) returning in August.

It's not a big surprise. Pineda was shut down last week with a right flexor forearm muscle strain and is still a few days away from throwing. The Yankees will likely have him make a couple of minor league rehab starts, so a return in September is more realistic.
Aug 4 - 3:41 PM

Brett Gardner is not in the Yankees' starting lineup Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Gardner will take a seat against left-hander Henry Owens. Chris Young is starting in left field and will bat second.
Aug 4 - 3:26 PM

Aaron Sanchez was suspended three games by MLB for throwing at Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar on Sunday.

Things were tense all weekend between the clubs and Sunday's incident caused both benches to empty. Sanchez is expected to appeal the suspension. Blue Jays manager John Gibbons has also received a one-game suspension for coming back onto the field following his ejection earlier in the game.
Aug 4 - 3:08 PM

Braves placed 1B Freddie Freeman on the 15-day disabled list with a right oblique strain.

A tough break for Freeman, who just recently returned from a right wrist contusion. He suffered the injury during Monday's game and will now require another extended absence. Chris Johnson and Joey Terdoslavich figure to fill in at first base.
