Rangers manager Ron Washington said Tuesday that he's "backing off" his initial expectation of Yu Darvish (elbow) returning on August 25 when first eligible.

"I’m not really thinking about the 25th," Washington said. "I just don’t know what’s going to be. I don’t know what’s going to happen there." Washington didn't indicate that Darvish's elbow injury might be more severe than initially thought, so it sounds like the Rangers are just being cautious here. Given that they've long been out of the playoff hunt, it wouldn't make any sense to rush the prized right-hander.

Zack Greinke (oblique) is expected to make an appearance in an Arizona League game on Friday.

Greinke made it through a 40-pitch simulated appearance on Tuesday and should be cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment if he wakes up Wednesday feeling fine. He could return to the Diamondbacks after just one minor league outing. The ace right-hander has been sidelined since June 29 because of a left oblique strain.

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said he's hopeful Jake Lamb (hand) can return Friday.

Lamb has been dealing with a bruised left hand. He went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts on Monday night against the Brewers and is hitless over his last five games. The hope is the 25-year-old third baseman can get back to cranking homers with a bit of rest and rehab.

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is out of the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday for the fifth consecutive game.

Puig has been sidelined since tweaking his right hamstring last Thursday. He was able to pinch-hit Friday but hasn't been heard from since. Andrew Toles is starting in right field on Tuesday night against the Rays.

Joey Gallo is starting at first base and batting sixth on Tuesday night against the Athletics.

Mitch Moreland is at designated hitter and Jurickson Profar is starting at shortstop. Gallo will probably get the majority of his playing time at first base, with Moreland seeing a dip in action. The 22-year-old slugger was sporting a .949 OPS with 19 home runs and 47 RBI in 70 games this season at Triple-A Round Rock.

Rangers recalled INF/OF Joey Gallo from Triple-A Round Rock.

Gallo has posted a .949 OPS with 19 home runs and 47 RBI in 70 games this season at the Triple-A level. Plate discipline remains an issue for the 22-year-old, but he has incredible raw power and could take on significant fantasy value if he finds a good offensive groove and regular playing time in Texas. Gallo has appeared in 23 games at first base and 33 games at third base this year with Round Rock. He played a lot of left field last year.

Julio Teheran (lat) is expected to start Saturday at home against the Phillies.

Teheran will get a bit of extra rest after leaving his last outing Friday against the Rockies because of a mild lat strain. He played long toss at 120 feet on Tuesday and threw his slider on flat ground. The 25-year-old right-hander boasts a 2.71 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, and 115/28 K/BB ratio in 129 2/3 innings this season for Atlanta.

According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, the Reds have "picked up the pace on Jay Bruce trade discussions."

Crasnick says the Reds are talking to at least four teams and seeking a top prospect in return. Bruce has revitalized his market value this season, boasting an .889 OPS with 23 home runs and 77 RBI in 93 games. The 29-year-old corner outfielder is scheduled to become a free agent five days after the 2016 World Series.

Cameron Maybin is dealing with an injury to the right side of his rib cage.

A rib popped out and had to be put back in place, per George Sipple of the Detroit Free Press. That explains why Maybin has been absent from the Tigers' starting lineup for the last three games. He did say he's feeling better Tuesday and this doesn't sound like it's going to be a disabled list situation.

Angels recalled LHP Tyler Skaggs from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Skaggs is over the elbow and shoulder troubles that have cost him nearly two years and will make his 2016 debut on Tuesday night in Kansas City. He dominated in his final two minor league rehab starts, racking up a combined 26 strikeouts in 12 2/3 innings for Triple-A Salt Lake. Get the 25-year-old southpaw activated in all standard fantasy leagues.

Alex Bregman is at DH and batting sixth Tuesday in his second major league game.

Bregman finished 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Monday in his MLB debut, but he came a few feet short of a grand slam in the sixth inning and looked sharp defensively at third base. He could play left field Wednesday.
Jul 26 - 4:22 PM

Michael Brantley (shoulder) said he is "very confident" he can still impact the Indians this season.

Brantley has been hitting in the cage for the past couple of days and is apparently feeling good. He underwent surgery earlier this month to remove scar tissue from his right biceps tendon, near the right shoulder that required major surgery last November. The star outfielder has been limited to 11 major league games in 2016.
