Jean Segura exited Saturday's game against the Reds due to illness.

Segura walked in his lone plate appearance before leaving the game. Consider him day-to-day for now. Brandon Drury replaced him at second base.

Josh Phegley was admitted to a hospital Friday with synovitis in his right knee.

Synovitis is an inflammatory disease within the membrane that lines the knee joint. Phegley, who had surgery on July 5 to remove a cruciate ligament cyst from the same knee, was originally scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment on Saturday. It's unclear what the next step will be.

J.D. Martinez was ejected from Saturday's game against the Angels in the bottom of the sixth inning.

The Tigers have had a problem with Mike Everitt's strike zone all night long. Victor Martinez, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus, and hitting coach Wally Joyner have also been ejected from the game. It's safe to say that Everitt is not a popular guy in Detroit tonight.

Williams Perez (shoulder) allowed six runs in three innings Saturday in his first minor league rehab start with Class A Rome.

Perez, out since June 8 with a right rotator cuff strain, moved up to Class A after throwing three scoreless innings with the GCL Braves on Monday. It didn't go as well in this one, as he gave up seven hits and walked a pair. The Braves surely want to see better before bringing him back, but he has a chance to return in September.

Blake Snell was diagnosed with a lower left leg bruise.

Snell was forced to exit Saturday's start against the Astros in the fourth inning after he was hit in the leg by a comebacker. The Rays didn't want to take any chances with him and we should know more about his status in the next day or so.

Brandon Belt was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup against the Braves due to a stiff neck.

It's probably safe to call him day-to-day. Conor Gillaspie will fill in at first base and bat fifth.

Victor Martinez was ejected from Saturday's game against the Angels in the middle of an at-bat in the third inning.

V-Mart got tossed after expressing his displeasure with the strike zone of home plate umpire Mike Everitt. After being ejected, he had to be restrained by Tigers manager Brad Ausmus and teammate J.D. Martinez. He then threw his helmet back onto the field after returning to the dugout. It was quite a display. Tyler Collins replaced him at designated hitter.

Blake Snell exited Saturday's start against the Astros in the bottom of the fourth inning after he was hit in the left foot by a comebacker.

Snell gave up four runs on nine hits before exiting and was replaced by Danny Farquhar. The Rays should pass along an update soon.

Hunter Pence (hamstring) underwent an MRI on Saturday.

Pence hasn't played since he left Thursday's game with right hamstring tightness, but it doesn't appear to be a major concern. Giants manager Bruce Bochy said it's realistic he could return Tuesday, but that Pence could push to play sooner.

Alex Cobb (elbow) allowed one run over four innings Saturday in his latest minor league rehab start with Triple-A Durham.

Cobb gave up five hits (including a home run) and walked none while striking out one. He threw 44 out of 58 pitches for strikes. It has been a long road back for the rehabbing right-hander, but his next start is expected to be in the majors. Cobb, who is making his way back from Tommy John surgery, hasn't pitched in the majors since 2014.

Julio Urias spun six innings of one-run ball in a 3-2 victory over the Cubs on Saturday.

The only run scored on an RBI single from Anthony Rizzo in the first inning. The 20-year-old southpaw struck out eight and walked a pair in the win and now owns a 3.71 ERA and 70/25 K/BB ratio over 63 innings. All things considered, that’s very impressive. His innings have been an issue all summer and it’s unclear what the Dodgers’ plans are for him after this start.
Aug 27 - 7:45 PM

Kenley Jansen tossed a perfect ninth inning against the Cubs on Saturday for his 38th save of the season.

Jansen bounced back quite nicely from his blown save from Friday, striking out two batters while needing just 10 pitches to get through the frame. He has been more human recently, but still holds a dominant 1.99 ERA and 78/9 K/BB ratio over 54 1/3 innings.
Aug 27 - 7:45 PM

Jason Hammel struggled for a second straight start Saturday against the Dodgers, allowing three runs over 2 1/3 innings.

It was his shortest outing of the season. Hammel allowed a solo homer to Corey Seager in the first inning before giving up two runs in the third. He has now allowed 13 runs (nine earned) in 5 2/3 innings over his last two starts. He’ll attempt to bounce back next week against the Giants.
Aug 27 - 7:44 PM

Corey Seager slugged a solo homer in Saturday’s win over the Cubs.

Seager finished the day 1-for-4. He’s now up to 23 home runs on the year to go along with a .322/.376/.545 batting line. The Rookie of the Year Award appears to be a lock at this point and he could even get some love for the NL MVP Award.
Aug 27 - 7:44 PM

Matt Wisler is expected to start Tuesday against the Padres.

This means that the Braves will skip Joel De La Cruz in the rotation. Wisler is coming off a brilliant outing on Thursday against the Diamondbacks where he allowed one run on two hits over eight innings.
