Edwin Encarnacion will undergo an MRI on his left biceps on Saturday after he was removed from Friday's game against the White Sox after just one plate appearance.

Indians' manager Terry Francona told reporters after the game, "He's been over compensating because of the bruise on his right hand... We just didn't want him take one swing and you can't undo something. We'll get him checked out tomorrow. We'll know more tomorrow." Be sure to check on his status after Saturday's exam, but it sounds like the Indians' slugger could be headed to the disabled list.

Joe Ross (elbow) is set to begin a minor league rehab assignment Thursday night with High-A Potomac.

Ross is around 13 months removed from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and could potentially pitch some innings for Washington down the stretch if everything continues to go well. The 25-year-old right-hander holds a 3.95 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, and 230/70 K/BB ratio in 255 1/3 career major league frames.

According to MLB.com's Jon Morosi, MLB team executives are expecting Japanese left-hander Yusei Kikuchi to be posted this winter.

Let's note here that there are new posting rules going into effect this offseason. All postings must occur between November 1 and December 5, with a 30-day negotiating window to follow. The posting fee, which goes to the Japanese team the player leaves behind, will be based on the guaranteed value of the player's MLB contract -- 20 percent of the first $25 million, 17.5 percent of the next $25 million, and 15 percent of any amount beyond $50 million. Kikuchi, a 27-year-old right-hander starter who flirted with the idea of signing with a Major League Baseball team as a teenager, has registered a 2.81 ERA and 8.0 K/9 in 984 1/3 professional innings, mostly with the Seibu Lions. Morosi has heard from MLB scouts that his ceiling is that of a No. 2 starter.

Jon Heyman of Fancred Sports hears that Adam Jones has cleared revocable trade waivers.

That means he is eligible to be traded to any team, but Jones has stated a desire to remain in Baltimore through the end of the season and his 10-and-5 rights allow him to veto any potential deal. There was real interest from the Phillies at the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline -- Jones apparently even had conversations with members of the Philadelphia front office -- but Heyman says the 33-year-old impending free agent "might be more likely to consider an AL team, where he’d have a chance to DH as well as play the outfield."

A CT scan on Ronald Acuna's left elbow came back clear and he is considered day-to-day.

Acuna was pulled from Wednesday night's game against the Marlins shortly after taking a Jose Urena pitch off his elbow in the bottom of the first inning -- in what appeared to be an intentional plunking. But he only suffered a bruise and some swelling, and it sounds like the 20-year-old phenom should be able to return to action this weekend. Acuna is batting .358/.425/.821 with 12 home runs, 24 RBI, and 25 runs scored over his last 25 games.

Rays activated OF Tommy Pham from the 10-day disabled list.

Pham missed two weeks of action with a small fracture in his right foot -- an injury he sustained in just his second game with Tampa Bay. The 30-year-old outfielder is batting .244/.332/.393 with 14 home runs and 10 stolen bases in 404 plate appearances this season between the Cardinals and Rays. He slashed .306/.411/.520 with 23 homers and 25 steals in 2017. Pham will start in left field and hit cleanup in his return Thursday versus Yankees righty Masahiro Tanaka.

Hyun-Jin Ryu was stellar in his return from the disabled list on Wednesday, pitching six scoreless innings against the Giants.

Ryu allowed three hits, walked none and struck out six before coming out. It was a performance much like a few he had before going down with a groin injury at the beginning of May. He can be highly useful in mixed leagues for however long he's healthy this time.

Brandon Nimmo went 5-for-5 with three RBI and three runs scored as the Mets crushed the Orioles 16-5 on Wednesday.

He got things started early and kept them going all night. He led off the ballgame with a single and came around to score on a Wilmer Flores sacrifice fly. He banged out an RBI-double in the fourth, and tripled to drive in both Kevin Plawecki and Jose Reyes in the sixth. The outfielder's big day boosted his line to .263/.387/.503 with 15 home runs, 39 RBI, 65 runs and eight stolen bases in 411 plate appearances. His .890 OPS leads the team by a wide margin.

Dylan Bundy got taken out behind the woodshed for a seven-run beatdown at the hands of the Mets on Wednesday.

He served up a solo home run to Todd Frazier and a whole bunch of hard contact to the rest of the lineup. He made it through 5 1/3 innings and allowed 11 hits total (six of them for extra bases) while striking out five in the loss. He gave up eight runs in his last start, so it's been a rough stretch for the former elite prospect. He falls to 7-11 with a 4.99 ERA and 1.34 WHIP after 23 starts. He has a nice 137:41 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 131 2/3 innings but has teed up 30 round-trippers already.
Aug 16 - 1:49 AM

Wilson Ramos went 3-for-4 with three RBI and three runs scored in his first game with the Phillies, leading his new squad to a 7-4 win over the Red Sox on Wednesday.

He cracked an RBI-double that plated Rhys Hoskins in the fourth inning, then scored on a Carlos Santana knock. In the seventh, Ramos banged another double that drove in Justin Bour and Asdrubal Cabrera. The veteran catcher was activated off the disabled list earlier in the day after recovering from a hamstring injury. He was acquired from the Rays last month for a player to be named later or cash considerations. Ramos has a .303 batting average with 14 homers and 56 RBI in 319 plate appearances and should be considered a top-three fantasy catcher for the rest of the season.

Eugenio Suarez struck out in all five of his at-bats in a loss to the Indians on Saturday.

The Reds' third baseman is having a fantastic season but this could go down as the worst game of his life. He will hope to put this embarrassing fiasco behind him tomorrow. He is slashing .296/.376/.554 with 26 home runs and is second in the National League with 88 RBI in 104 games.
Aug 16 - 12:55 AM

Tommy Pham will be activated off the 10-day disabled list on Thursday.

Pham was scheduled to play in a rehab game for short-season Hudson Valley, but that rehab appearance was cancelled, and instead he'll make a return to the Tampa Bay lineup after being out for over two weeks with the fractured right foot. In a corresponding move, the Rays have sent down Jacob Faria. On the year, Pham has a .244/.332/.393 line with 14 homers and 10 steals over 100 games.
