Cubs INF Javier Baez returns to the big leagues, starting Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(4:50 pm ET) Cubs top prospect Javier Baez has been recalled from Triple-A Iowa, and he is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Reds. Baez will be making his season debut, and will bat seventh while playing second base.

Baez got his first taste of the big leagues in 2014, when he hit nine home runs in 52 games--but he hit just .169.


Royals' Alex Rios, Kelvin Herrera out with the chicken pox
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(4:44 pm ET) The illness that has inflicted Royals right fielder Alex Rios over the past few days has been identified. Rios has suffering from a bout of the chicken pox, which he picked up during the team's recent series in Tampa Bay.

Rios--along with 2015 All-Star reliever Kelvin Herrera, who was also diagnosed with the virus--could miss up to two weeks, according to the Kansas City Star.

Neither player has been placed on the disabled list at this point, and with the rosters expanded on Tuesday, they may stay on the active roster. 


Astros recall RP Joe Thatcher on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(4:34 pm ET) The Astros have added reliever Joe Thatcher to the active roster on Tuesday. Thatcher was designated for assignment by the Astros at the end of July, and elected free agency rather than head to the minors.

But, a week later he inked a minior-league deal with the Astros, and had been pitching with Triple-A Fresno. In nine games with Fresno, he posted a 1.04 ERA.

To clear room on the 40-man roster, pitcher Jake Buchanan was designated for assignment.


Marlins OF Christian Yelich back in the lineup Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(4:28 pm ET) Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich has returned to the starting lineup for Tuesday's matchup with the Braves. Yelich missed three straight starts due to a bruised knee.

He was used as a pinch-hitter and went 1 for 2 on Monday, so it appears the rest did Yelich good. He's in left field and batting second on Tuesday.


Pirates make flurry of roster moves on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(4:21 pm ET) Following the expansion of the active rosters, the Pirates made a handful of moves on Tuesday. 

Right-handed reliever Rob Scahill (forearm) was activated from the disabled list. Additionally, the Pirates recalled Jaff Decker , Bobby LaFromboise , Elias Diaz , Travis Snider and Radhames Liz from Triple-A Indianapolis.


Mariners add four players to active roster on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(3:47 pm ET) The Mariners made a handful of roster moves on Tuesday. The team announced that they have recalled outfielder Stefen Romero , infielder Shawn O'Malley and right-handers Jose Ramirez and Tony Zych from Triple-A Tacoma.

Zych is the only member of this quartet to not have tasted the Major Leagues previously. 


Padres active RP Marcos Mateo, recall RP Nick Vincent Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(3:41 pm ET) The Padres made a couple of roster moves on Tuesday. Right-handed reliever Marcos Mateo was activated from the disabled list. Mateo landed on the DL back on Aug. 8 due to a neck strain.

Additionally, the Padres recalled right-hander Nick Vincent from Triple-A El Paso. This will be Vincent's fourth stint with the Padres this season, though he hasn't been up with the club since the end of June.


Orioles RP Chaz Roe activated from disabled list Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(3:35 pm ET) Orioles reliever Chaz Roe has been activated from the 15-day disabled list. Roe landed on the DL with tendinitis in his right shoulder back on Aug. 10. 

Prior to the injury, the right-hander made 28 relief appearances for the Orioles. He went 2-2 with a 3.12 ERA. He is not expected to pitch until Wednesday at the earliest. 


Braves' Hector Olivera starting at third base in MLB debut Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(3:31 pm ET) It's official. Hector Olivera has been called up to the Braves and will make his Major League debut Tuesday against the Marlins. Olivera is in the starting lineup, playing third base and batting sixth.

Olivera was initially out of the lineup, but manager Fredi Gonzalez issued a new starting nine with Olivera included. 

Olivera, 30, was signed by the Dodgers during the offseason. In 2015, spanning several minor-league clubs, Olivera hit .272/.326/.376 with two homers in 125 at-bats. But he has hit as many as 17 home runs during his time in the Cuban professional league. 


Royals add four players to roster on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(3:27 pm ET) The Royals have called up four players from Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday. Catcher Francisco Pena , infielder Christian Colon and outfielders Cheslor Cuthbert and Terrance Gore have been added to the Royals' active roster.
