Jose Iglesias will undergo more tests after his ailing right middle finger swelled up on him overnight.

Iglesias was diagnosed with just a bruise on Thursday, but his finger feels worse a day later and that's obviously not a good sign. The Tigers should have more on the shortstop's status at some point over the weekend.

CC Sabathia (knee) will be activated from the disabled to start on Wednesday versus the Orioles.

Sabathia threw a 60-pitch simulated game Friday and came out of it with no issues. The Yankees don't plan to remove anyone from the rotation, so it looks like they'll go with a six-man alignment down the stretch. Sabathia has missed the last couple weeks with an arthritic right knee.
Sep 4 - 4:18 PM

Indians designated OF Carlos Moncrief for assignment.

He's now off the 40-man roster. Moncrief has hit just .227/.346/.367 between Double- and Triple-A this season.
Sep 4 - 3:49 PM

Indians transferred LHP T.J. House from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

It frees up a 40-man roster spot. House is done for the season with a shoulder injury.
Sep 4 - 3:47 PM

Orioles placed RHP Miguel Gonzalez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 31, with right shoulder and elbow inflammation.

The move was made so that Jorge Rondon could be added to the roster, as he was sent down fewer than 10 days ago. Gonzalez hopes to return before the end of the season, but it's not a given. Mike Wright is taking his spot in the rotation.
Sep 4 - 3:45 PM

Orioles recalled RHP Jorge Rondon from Triple-A Norfolk.

Rondon holds an 11.88 ERA over his five appearances in the majors this season. He'll be used in the middle innings.
Sep 4 - 3:43 PM

Orioles recalled OF Junior Lake from Triple-A Norfolk.

Lake went 2-for-14 at the plate last month for the O's. He'll see the occasional start in the outfield.
Sep 4 - 3:42 PM

Tigers recalled RHP Jose Valdez from Triple-A Toledo.

Valdez allowed two runs without recording an out in his lone appearances with the big club this season. He won't be used in high-leverage situations.
Sep 4 - 3:34 PM

Tigers recalled RHP Jeff Ferrell from Triple-A Toledo.

Ferrell has allowed three runs over two innings in the majors this season. He'll work in middle relief.
Sep 4 - 3:31 PM

Tigers recalled INF Dixon Machado from Triple-A Toledo.

Machado has just one hit in eight plate appearances this season with the big club. He'll provide some depth with Jose Iglesias (finger) banged up.
Sep 4 - 3:30 PM

Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

Ramirez hasn't played in over a week due to fatigue in his right shoulder. He remains day-to-day but there's been no indication of when he'll be back in there. Allen Craig is getting a start at first base Friday.
Sep 4 - 3:03 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that contract extension talks between the Astros and Dallas Keuchel's agent "will or have been" tabled until the offseason.

Keuchel revealed last month that the discussions were taking place, but it's not a surprise that the two sides have decided to hold off for now while they fight for a playoff spot. The left-hander will be arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter and is arguably the front-runner for the American League Cy Young award, having put up a 2.24 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP and a 173/42 K/BB ratio over 192 2/3 innings.
Sep 4 - 2:03 PM

Astros recalled RHP Michael Feliz from Double-A Corpus Christi.

Feliz made one scoreless appearance for the big club earlier this season. The hard-throwing righty has put up a 2.83 ERA with 103 strikeouts over 111 1/3 innings between High- and Double-A this season.
Sep 4 - 1:07 PM

Astros activated OF George Springer from the 15-day disabled list.

Springer got through five rehab games with Double-A Corpus Christi with no issues and is ready to go. He's been sidelined since early July with a fractured right wrist.
Sep 4 - 1:05 PM

Twins recalled LHP Logan Darnell from Triple-A Rochester.

Darnell put up a 2.78 ERA while splitting his time between starting and relieving at Rochester this season. The Twins will use him in long relief.
