Michael Taylor (knee) went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in his return to the Nationals' lineup Sunday.
Taylor was held out for a couple games after bruising his right knee. The young outfielder is going to be an important player for the second-place Nationals down the stretch with Denard Span (hip) now ruled out for the remainder of the 2015 season. Taylor, 24, is batting .243/.292/.391 with 13 home runs and 15 stolen bases in 111 games this year at the major league level.
According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, the Yankees have claimed David Robertson off revocable waivers.
Now the Yankees and White Sox have until Monday at 2 p.m. ET to work something out. Heyman says there is "no evidence of trade talks between the teams," which is typical of waiver claims this time of year. Robertson, who saved 39 games for the Yankees in 2014, has registered a 2.60 ERA, 0.88 WHIP, and 71/11 K/BB ratio in 52 innings this season for Chicago. He signed a four-year, $46 million free agent contract last winter.
Christian Yelich (knee, ankle) hit a pinch-hit single in the Marlins' loss to the Nationals on Sunday.
Yelich hadn't appeared in a game for the Fish since re-injuring his right knee and fouling a ball off his ankle last Wednesday. The 23-year-old outfielder should be ready to return to everyday action this week.
Kike Hernandez was removed from Sunday's game against the Cubs in the eighth inning due to tightness in his hamstring.
Hernandez seemed to pull up lame as he crossed first base while trying to leg out an infield single in the eighth inning. No word yet on the severity of the injury, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him miss a game or two.
Kris Bryant blasted a two-run homer off Alex Wood in the first inning on Sunday, powering the Cubs to a 2-0 victory over the Dodgers.
That proved to be more than enough offense to back an absolute gem spun by Jake Arrieta. Bryant finished the night 1-for-4 and is now slashing .260/.362/.477 with 21 homers and 79 RBI in his impressive rookie campaign.
