Latest Headlines

Tuesday's game between the Diamondbacks and Indians has been postponed due to rain.

Play was suspended in the top of the fourth inning before eventually being called a while later. Scheduled starters Josh Collmenter and T.J. House were both pitching well before the delay but will obviously be unavailable for a few days now. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Wednesday.

Lorenzo Cain will be sidelined for a few days after aggravating his left hamstring injury on Sunday.

It's an ailment Cain has been trying to play through for a couple weeks now. Royals manager Ned Yost expects the outfielder to be fine for next week's All-Star game, but it sounds like he could be sidelined for most of this week's action. Jarrod Dyson is handling center field Monday.

Yordano Ventura (hand) has officially been cleared to start on Thursday against the Rays after a successful bullpen session Monday.

Ventura had been slated for another rehab start, but the Royals changed their mind after he felt good in a 'pen session over the weekend. Given the nice matchup, fantasy owners can probably go ahead and roll with the righty this week. Joe Blanton will head back to the bullpen following Ventura's return.

Royals designated RHP Jason Frasor for assignment.

Well, this one is a surprise. Frasor has been lucky to post a 1.54 ERA this season considering his 4.03 FIP and 18/15 K/BB ratio over 23 1/3 innings, but he's been a mostly reliable reliever since arriving in Kansas City last July. He's making just $1.25 million this season and has a $2 million mutual option for 2016. The Royals seem likely to be able to find someone wanting to trade for Frasor.

Mariners activated RHP Hisashi Iwakuma from the 15-day disabled list.

The right-hander has been sidelined since late April due to a strained lat muscle. He also had a blister issue in his last rehab start, but manager Lloyd McClendon said that Iwakuma will not be under a strict pitch count Monday when he takes on the Tigers. Fantasy owners can probably feel free to go ahead and ride with him.

Starling Marte (oblique) is not in the Pirates' lineup Monday.

The Pirates are calling him day-to-day for now even though it's almost surely a strained oblique Marte is dealing with (the club has only said he has discomfort in his left side). It appears he'll avoid the disabled list for now, but fantasy owners would be wise not to count on him for a few days. Sean Rodriguez is in left field Monday.
Jul 6 - 4:17 PM

Carlos Gomez (wrist) is back in the Brewers' lineup Monday.

Gomez sat out Sunday's game after having to leave Saturday following a hit by pitch on the left wrist. He's probably still a tad sore but should be fine.
Jul 6 - 4:05 PM

According to the Pittsburgh Tribune's Rob Biertempfel, Josh Harrison has torn ligaments in his thumb and will be out up to six weeks.

Harrison wasn't in the lineup for Monday's game against the Padres. He apparently injured his hand while making an awkward slide into second on Sunday. A six-week recovery time would put his return around mid-to-late August.
Jul 6 - 3:33 PM

Brewers placed RHP Matt Garza on the disabled list, retroactive to July 3, with right shoulder tendinitis.

This is somewhat surprising, as there was little indication that Garza was dealing with arm troubles. It's unknown if this has been impacting his recent performance, but in his last two starts, he's been hit hard to the tune of 11 runs on 23 hits over 11 1/3 innings. For the season, Garza holds a 5.55 ERA and 68/33 K/BB ratio. No timetable has been set for his return as of yet.

According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the Giants are looking at Brewers outfielder Gerardo Parra and Braves outfielder Cameron Maybin as possible trade targets.

Parra is currently playing for one of the worst teams in baseball and is a logical trade candidate. He's been on fire of late, too, raising his season slash line to .308/.345/.477 thanks to a bevy of multi-hit games to start July. He's also swatted seven home runs and driven in 25. Olney notes that Giant outfielders--combined--have hit just 12 homers on the season.
Jul 6 - 12:56 PM

ESPN's Buster Olney wrote that some other teams perceive that the Braves may be willing to trade Cameron Maybin as a sell-high move before the trade deadline.

It should be noted here that Olney does not attach any specific team names, but it would make sense that the Braves would at least be open to discussing Maybin, who is posting one of the best overall seasons of his career (.294/.363.416, seven homers, 39 RBI, 15 steals). The team currently sits at 40-42.
Jul 6 - 12:17 PM

Jordan Zimmermann pitched brilliantly in Sunday's victory over the Giants, allowing just one run on three hits over seven strong innings.

The right-hander racked up eight strikeouts on the evening while issuing just one walk. The only blemish on his night came on a solo home run by Brandon Crawford in the fourth inning. The 29-year-old is enjoying another terrific season, compiling a 3.04 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 77/20 K/BB ratio over 106 2/3 innings. He'll look to wrap up the first half on a high note when he squares off against the Orioles in Baltimore on Saturday.
