An MRI taken Saturday on Desmond Jennings' left knee showed no major damage.
Jennings is aiming to return to the Rays' starting lineup on Sunday after sitting out Friday and Saturday. The 27-year-old outfielder has 10 homers and 15 stolen bases in 123 games this season for Tampa Bay, but he's registered a disappointing .244/.319/.378 slash line.
Logan Watkins went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and two runs scored in a 5-1 win over the Cardinals on Saturday.
Watkins and Chris Valaika went back-to-back against Justin Masterson in the fourth inning. It was the first home run of Watkins' major league career. The 25-year-old made the start in right field for the first game of the doubleheader, as the Cubs wanted to take it easy on Jorge Soler's hamstring. Watkins has played all over the place in Triple-A this season and could stick as a utility player, though it probably won't lead to much fantasy value.
Felix Doubront fired seven innings of one-run ball Saturday as the Cubs won the first game of a doubleheader against the Cardinals.
Making his first start with the Cubs, Doubront scattered seven hits while walking one and striking out four. The only run scored on a double-play grounder from Jon Jay in the second inning. The southpaw really struggled during his time with the Red Sox this season, but he could be relevant in NL-only leagues if the Cubs give him a look in the rotation in September.
Justin Masterson was chased after giving up five runs over 4 1/3 innings in Saturday's loss to the Cubs.
Masterson gave up six hits, including three home runs. He now owns a 7.43 ERA with 28 hits and 10 walks allowed in 23 innings over his first five starts since coming over from the Indians. It's hard to imagine the Cardinals will keep him in the rotation much longer.
Starlin Castro was 2-for-4 with a solo home run Saturday against the Cardinals.
Castro hit the Cubs' third and final home run of the day against Justin Masterson. The 24-year-old now has 14 home runs on the year, matching his career-high from 2012. Meanwhile, his .771 OPS in his best since 2011.
Randal Grichuk went 1-for-4 with a single and two strikeouts in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs.
Grichuk started in right field and batted second with left-hander Felix Doubront on the hill for Chicago. The Cubs are slated to throw Tsuyoshi Wada in the nightcap and Travis Wood on Sunday, so we should see more of him this weekend.
Brewers recalled RHP Alfredo Figaro from Triple-A Nashville.
Figaro will give the Milwaukee bullpen a fresh arm after Friday's 13-2 drubbing in San Francisco. The righty owns a 3.71 ERA in 70 1/3 innings this season at Triple-A.
Twins purchased the contract of LHP Aaron Thompson from Triple-A Rochester.
Thompson was sporting a 3.98 ERA, 1.44 WHIP, and 51/26 K/BB ratio in 52 innings this season at Rochester. He last appeared in a major league game back in 2011.
