Anthony Gose belted his fourth home run of the season in a losing effort against the Blue Jays on Friday.

His two-run shot off R.A. Dickey in the seventh inning pulled the Tigers to within two runs at 5-3, but that would be as close as they'd get. He finished the night 1-for-3 and is now hitting .253/.308/.366 with four homers and 23 RBI on the season.

Matt Boyd struggled against his former club on Friday, serving up three home runs in a losing effort against the Blue Jays.

Boyd surrendered a total of five runs on seven hits over his six innings of work while walking three and striking out four. The Jays broke things open against him in the third inning with back-to-back homers from Troy Tulowitzki and Josh Donaldson. Boyd now owns a troublesome 7.12 ERA and 1.64 WHIP on the season. He'll look for better results against the Royals in Kansas City on Thursday.

Blue Jays claimed 1B/OF Danny Dorn off waivers from the Diamondbacks.

He'll report to Triple-A Buffalo. The 31-year-old was hitting a blistering .386/.444/.618 with 10 homers and 53 RBI in 75 games at Triple-A Reno but struggled in his limited time with the Diamondbacks. He could provide depth on the Jays bench in September.

David Ross is expected to return from the bereavement list and rejoin the Cubs on Sunday.

Ross is away from the team due to a death in the family. That means that Jon Lester will have to go without his regular catcher on Saturday and throw to Miguel Montero instead.

Joe Panik (back) is on track to begin a minor league rehab assignment on Tuesday.

Panik will hit indoors on Saturday and then on the field before Sunday's game. As long as everything goes well with those sessions, he'll head out on what is expected to be a brief minor league rehab assignment. Kelby Tomlinson will continue to hold down the fort at second base in his absence.

Athletics head trainer Nick Paparesta said Friday that Ike Davis (hip) should be fully recovered and ready for spring training.

Davis underwent successful surgery earlier in the month to repair his ailing left hip. He hit just .229/.301/.350 with three homers and 20 RBI in 214 at-bats in his first season with the Athletics.
Aug 28 - 8:00 PM

Brandon Crawford (oblique) remains out of the Giants starting lineup on Friday.

Crawford is dealing with a tight left oblique and is expected to need another day or two before he's ready to return. Ehire Adrianza is once again starting in his place at shortstop and batting eighth for the Giants.
Aug 28 - 7:47 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Friday that Howie Kendrick (hamstring) is not yet ready for a minor league rehab assignment.

The plan had been for Kendrick to begin his rehab assignment on Sunday. Mattingly indicated that while Kendrick has not suffered a setback, his recovery has plateaued at the moment, and he hasn't progressed as quickly as anticipated. The Dodgers will continue to roll with Chase Utley at the position for the time being.
Aug 28 - 7:45 PM

Giants recalled RHP Chris Heston from Triple-A Sacramento.

Heston will return to the Giants rotation on Sunday, taking the place of the injured Matt Cain. The right-hander owns a 3.34 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 110/48 K/BB ratio across 145 2/3 innings on the season.
Aug 28 - 7:39 PM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said that he'd like to stay away from using Daniel Hudson on Friday and perhaps Saturday.

The right-hander has been heavily-relied upon in recent weeks, so Hale wants to make sure he keeps Hudson fresh down the stretch. The 28-year-old hurler owns a 3.90 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 55/22 K/BB ratio over 55 1/3 innings this season.
Aug 28 - 7:34 PM

Angel Pagan (knee) will remain on his minor league rehab assignment through the weekend and will rejoin the Giants when rosters expand on Tuesday.

Pagan had been scheduled to return on Friday, but the club has opted to give him a few more days rather than rushing him. He has been shelved since August 10 with tendinitis in his right knee.
Aug 28 - 7:30 PM

Giants placed RHP Matt Cain on the 15-day disabled list with nerve irritation in his right elbow.

Cain has struggled mightily since his return from the disabled list, posting a 6.15 ERA and 1.58 WHIP through his 10 starts, and the nerve issue could be partially to blame. Chris Heston will take his place in the Giants rotation and start on Sunday.
Aug 28 - 7:24 PM

Dodgers recalled INF Jose Peraza from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

He would've been back with the club once rosters expand in September, but with the injury to Yasiel Puig he gets to return a couple of days early. He will provide infield depth down the stretch for the Dodgers.
Aug 28 - 7:21 PM

Dodgers placed OF Yasiel Puig on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

Puig re-injured his hamstring during Thursday's game against the Reds. He has appeared in just 77 games in what has been an injury-plagued season. Jose Peraza was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move.
Aug 28 - 7:19 PM

Adam Jones (neck) is in the Orioles starting lineup on Friday.

Jones was removed from Thursday's game and experienced symptoms of whiplash after crashing into the outfield wall. He didn't display any concussion symptoms though and is apparently ready to roll the very next day.
