Tigers manager Brad Ausmus announced Tuesday that Anibal Sanchez will continue to work out of the bullpen.

Sanchez made a spot start in place of Michael Fulmer over the weekend where he was blasted by the Cleveland Indians. He'll continue to work out of his funk in a middle or long relief role for the Tigers.

Stephen Strasburg (back) threw a successful bullpen session on Tuesday.

The star right-hander was pleased with how everything went and felt afterwards. The Nationals will continue to play things cautiously with his recovery and he's unlikely to return from the disabled list when first eligible on Friday. Barring any further setbacks though, a return next week seems plausible.

Justin Turner (hamstring) is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Tuesday.

Turner was removed from Monday night's game due to a hamstring cramp and is likely sitting out again as a precautionary measure. Chris Taylor is starting in his place at the hot corner and will bat eighth against Chase Anderson and the Brewers.

Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Brewers.

While he has been on fire at the dish since his return, he'll get a breather against Chase Anderson on Tuesday. Howie Kendrick is starting in left field and batting second for the Dodgers.

Yankees recall RHP Conor Mullee from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The 28-year-old hurler has only appeared in one game with the Yankees this season, walking three batters in his lone inning of work. At Triple-A, he sported a ridiculous 0.52 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 45/10 K/BB ratio across 34 1/3 innings. He'll function in middle relief.

Yankees optioned RHP Kirby Yates to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The 29-year-old hurler has had a rough go of it out of the Yankees bullpen this season, compiling a 5.72 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 35/13 K/BB ratio over 28 1/3 innings. He'll try to right the ship in the minor leagues before returning later in the season.

Salvador Perez is not in the Royals starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cardinals.

The hard-working backstop will take a rare day off against right-hander Michael Wacha. Drew Butera will start in his place behind the dish and bat ninth for the Royals.
Jun 28 - 4:29 PM

Alez Gordon is not in the Royals starting lineup for Tuesday's showdown against the Cardinals.

The Royals are easing Gordon back into action after missing over a month due to a broken bone in his hand. Whit Merrifield is getting the call in left field and batting leadoff while Christian Colon mans second base for the Royals on Tuesday.

Rays RHP prospect Greg Harris spanned seven shutout innings Monday in a win for High-A Charlotte.

He scattered two hits and two walks while recording four strikeouts. Monday's seven-inning gem matched the right-hander's longest start of the year. Prior to Monday, Harris had been winless in his previous seven starts with a 4.03 ERA during that span. The 21-year-old has registered 70 strikeouts this season. That's fifth-most in the Florida State League.

Mets manager Terry Collins admitted Tuesday that Lucas Duda (back) is still at least two weeks away from resuming baseball activities.

That makes a return in July look a lot more questionable for the hobbled slugger. Duda has been sidelined since May 21 due to a stress fracture in his back. Expect to see more James Loney at first base for the Mets over the next month.
Jun 28 - 4:16 PM

Astros OF prospect Daz Cameron finished a double short of the cycle Monday in a win for Low-A Tri-City.

The 19-year-old finished with four hits and plated three of the ValleyCats' eight runs. It's been all-or-nothing for Cameron lately. He's driven in 11 runs over his last 10 games, though he's struck out 18 times during that span. Cameron's two-run shot in the fourth inning was his first homer in 297 minor league at-bats.

Logan Verrett will make a spot start for the Mets on Wednesday against the Nationals in Washington.

He's taking the place of Steven Matz who is being pushed back a day to give his elbow some rest. While he's worth a look as a streaming option, he draws a difficult matchup against Max Scherzer.
Jun 28 - 4:11 PM

Orioles recalled LHP T.J. McFarland from Triple-A Norfolk.

The southpaw has been a preferred choice any time the Orioles need an extra arm in the bullpen. He owns a 4.70 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 6/8 K/BB ratio across 23 innings with the big league club this season.
Jun 28 - 4:08 PM

Brett Gardner is not in the Yankees starting lineup on Tuesday.

It's simply a routine day of rest for Gardner as the Yankees square off against a difficult southpaw. Aaron Hicks will start in his place in left field and bat eighth for the Yankees.
Jun 28 - 4:06 PM

Yankees RHP prospect Domingo Acevedo hurled seven shutout innings Monday in a win for High-A Tampa.

He struck out six and didn't allow a walk. The seven-inning effort was Acevedo's longest start since April 27 when he logged eight innings in a win over Lakewood. Monday was only Acevedo's third start since his promotion earlier this month. So far he's 4-2 this year with 62 strikeouts and a 2.12 ERA over 59 1/3 innings between Tampa and Low-A Charleston.
