George Springer (knee/quad) remained out of the Astros' lineup Tuesday.

It's the second straight game he's missed. When asked whether he feels more pain in his knee or quad, Springer said, "I just have overall kind of discomfort." An MRI revealed no structural damage, so for now the young outfielder remains day-to-day. "You have to say to yourself 'He's not going to play within the next 15 days,'" manager Bo Porter said of a possible DL stint for Springer. "We're not at that point right now."

Reds outfield prospect Jesse Winker will miss the next 2-4 weeks with a strained tendon in his right wrist.

Winker will not require surgery, but the wrist is currently immobilized. Ranked by MLB.com prior to the season as the team's No. 3 prospect, Winker has batted .287/.399/.518 with 15 homers and 57 RBI between High- and Double-A this season.

MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports that the Marlins are likelier to extend Casey McGehee than trade him.

McGehee is a sell high candidate if there ever was one, but the Marlins evidently want to keep him around. The third baseman is eligible for arbitration this winter for a final time, so the Marlins wouldn't necessarily have to extend McGehee in order to keep him around for another year. McGehee, who has drawn interest from the Mariners, among other clubs, is batting .322 with 56 RBI this season.

Orioles optioned RHP Preston Guilmet to Triple-A Norfolk.

Guilmet has put up a 5.23 ERA over 10 appearances during his multiple stints with the big club this season. He'll be back again eventually.

Orioles recalled RHP Miguel Gonzalez from Triple-A Norfolk.

Gonzalez will start on Tuesday against the Angels after being optioned prior to the All-Star break so that he could continue pitching. He has a 4.04 ERA and 1.45 WHIP on the season and isn't a good streaming option Tuesday.

Newsday's Marc Carig reports that teams have started calling the Mets about Bartolo Colon.

Carig notes that the Mets are gauging the market and don’t seem inclined to eat money to make a deal work. Colon is making $9 million and will earn $11 million in 2015. The rotund right-hander holds a 4.12 ERA and 95/18 K/BB ratio over 126 2/3 innings for the Mets this season.

Joe Mauer (oblique) has progressed to hitting off a tee.

It's a nice step after he took dry swings over the weekend, but a clear timetable for his return won't be known until he faces live pitching. Mauer has been out since early July with a strained right oblique.
