Ryan Hanigan (side) is not in the Rays lineup on Saturday.

Brett Anderson (finger) is expected to rejoin the Rockies starting rotation on Sunday against the Twins.

Anderson looked strong through his two minor league rehab starts, so the Rockies are comfortable bringing the southpaw back into the fold a little earlier than his projected timetable. Through his first three starts, he posted a 3.60 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 5/5 K/BB ratio over 15 innings.
Jul 12 - 1:55 PM

Adam Eaton (wrist, ankle) is not in the White Sox starting lineup on Saturday and isn't expected to return until after the All-Star break.

They dynamic young outfielder is dealing with a sore left wrist and right ankle, and could use a few extra days in order to be 100% ready for the second half of the season. He's hitting .270/.340/.372 with one homer, 25 RBI and eight stolen bases through 74 games on the season.

Henderson Alvarez was named to the National League All-Star team as an injury replacement for Jordan Zimmermann.

Alvarez will be the second member of the Marlins headed to Minneapolis, joining teammate Giancarlo Stanton. He's certainly had a deserving first half, registering a 6-4 record, 2.63 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 73/22 K/BB ratio over his 120 innings of work.
Jul 12 - 1:37 PM

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons announced that R.A. Dickey will start the finale of the season's first half on Sunday against the Rays.

Dickey will be working on his regular rest. That means J.A. Happ will have his next start pushed back until after the Mid-Summer Classic. Dickey has been much improved in recent weeks, posting a 3.15 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 38/15 K/BB ratio over his last seven starts.
Jul 12 - 1:33 PM

Marco Scutaro has returned to the Giants starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Scutaro has missed the entire season thus far due to a recurring back injury. While he will be eased back into action, he makes for an interesting target in deeper mixed, and NL-only formats.
Jul 12 - 1:28 PM

Orioles optioned RHP Miguel Gonzalez to Triple-A Norfolk.

Gonzalez had an option remaining, and will make a start in the minor leagues over the All-Star break so that he doesn't have an extra-long layoff. Through the season's first half he sports a 4.04 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 69/32 K/BB ratio over 89 innings.
Jul 12 - 1:22 PM

Cardinals optioned C Audry Perez to Triple-A Memphis.

Perez was serving as the primary backup to Tony Cruz with Yadier Molina on the disabled list, but became expendable after the addition of George Kottaras. He'll continue to function as organizational depth.
Jul 12 - 1:11 PM

Brewers recalled INF/OF Elian Herrera from Triple-A Nashville.

Herrera will provide additional depth for the Brewers while Jean Segura attends to a family tragedy back home in the Dominican Republic. The 29-year-old has appeared in 37 games with the Brewers this season, hitting .235/.241/.284 with two RBI and a 24/1 K/BB ratio over 81 at-bats.

Jul 12 - 1:02 PM

Yankees optioned RHP Matt Daley to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Daley was sent out to make room for Jeff Francis who arrived on Saturday. Over 12 appearances with the Bombers this season, he owns a 4.85 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 9/6 K/BB ratio over 13 innings.
Jul 12 - 12:58 PM

Blue Jays recall OF Anthony Gose from Triple-A Buffalo.

With Nolan Reimold heading to the disabled list, Gose will once again provide depth in the outfield for the Jays. In 44 games this season, the 23-year-old is hitting .229/.333/.284 with five RBI, five stolen bases and a 32/16 K/BB ratio over 109 at-bats.
Jul 12 - 12:53 PM

Jul 12 - 12:52 PM

George Springer has returned to the Astros starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Red Sox.

The dynamic young outfielder was a late scratch from Friday's contest due to discomfort in his right knee. While it sounds like a nagging issue that could remain a problem off and on all season, he felt good enough to give it a go on Saturday. Through 74 games, he's hitting .238/.342/.475 with 19 homers, 50 RBI, five stolen bases and a league-leading 109 strikeouts.
Jul 12 - 12:37 PM

Cubs shortstop prospect Addison Russell went 2-for-5 for the second consecutive night for Double-A Tennessee.

Russell was 0-for-9 over his first two games, but has gone 4-for-10 over his last two games, bringing his Cubs-only line to .211/.211/.211 over four games. Russell is a better shortstop, both now and long-term, than Javier Baez, but the Cubs future infield is beyond crowded, with Arismendy Alcantara, Baez, Kris Bryant, and Russell making the case for three spots, one of which is already in the possession of 22-year old Starlin Castro.
