Orioles placed RHP Chris Tillman on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 21, with right shoulder inflammation.
He is eligible to return from the disabled list September 5 and the O's are hoping he will be ready on that date. Tillman missed a start one week ago after complaining of shoulder discomfort and then got lit up for six earned runs over just two innings Saturday versus the Astros. That blunder aside, he has been the Orioles' most reliable pitcher in 2016 by far. Ubaldo Jimenez and his 6.94 ERA will start in Tillman's place Thursday versus the Nationals.
Chase Utley was removed from Tuesday's win over the Giants with a lingering foot issue.
Utley didn't actually start the game, but he singled and scored as a pinch-hitter in the sixth inning and stayed on for defense in the seventh before leaving in the eighth. "He's been maintenancing his foot for about a month," manager Dave Roberts said late Tuesday night. "That's why we had to get him out of the game. He couldn't stay on his feet any longer. Chase will be day to day."
Charlie Blackmon (toe) finished 1-for-5 with a run scored in his return to the Rockies' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Brewers.
He struck out in three of his five trips to the plate as the Rockies fell at Milwaukee. Blackmon had missed four straight starts because of a bruised right toe.
Josh Reddick (finger) drew a walk and scored a run as a pinch-hitter on Tuesday.
Reddick was held out of the Dodgers' starting lineup for the second straight game after jamming his right middle finger while having room service delivered in Cincinnati on Sunday. Including that walk on Tuesday night against the Giants, the 29-year-old outfielder is batting .149/.219/.164 in 73 plate appearances with Los Angeles. Maybe he can finish strong.
Oliver Perez (back) allowed a run on two hits and a walk Tuesday in his return to action.
Perez had been unavailable for a handful of days due to tightness in his back. The veteran lefty has struggled mightily in August and now has a 5.71 ERA for the year.
