Player News
Matt Dominguez grabbing some pine Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:45 pm ET) Astros slumping third baseman Matt Dominguez has been benched for the Saturday game in Cleveland. Gregorio Petit is set to start instead at that spot.

Dominguez has just five hits in his last 35 at-bats.


Ryan Raburn beginning rehab stint Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:40 pm ET) Indians utility player Ryan Raburn is set to start a rehab assignment Saturday at Triple-A Columbus.

Raburn has been sidelined since Sunday with a wrist injury.


Jason Heyward absent from Saturday lineup
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:27 pm ET) Braves right fielder Jason Heyward is set to sit Saturday in Cincinnati despite a six-game hitting streak.

Heyward has nine hits in his last 23 at-bats with a home run, six RBI and six runs scored.


Brandon Morrow set to throw live BP on Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:19 pm ET) Blue Jays right-hander Brandon Morrow is set to throw live batting practice Saturday for the first time since sustaining a right index finger injury in late April. John Gibbons told MLB.com that he plans on seeing Morrow back in game action in September.

Morrow, who remains on the 60-day disabled list, would join the Toronto bullpen since there would not be enough time to build up his arm strength for a starting role.


Phillies give Reid Brignac DFA tag, promote Freddy Galvis
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:00 pm ET) The Phillies have designated for assignment Reid Brignac and promoted from Triple-A Lehigh Valley fellow infielder Freddy Galvis .

Galvis managed just two hits in 42 at-bats in an early-season stint with Philadelphia.


Jean Segura a no-go Saturday against Pirates
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:51 pm ET) Slumping shortstop Jean Segura is out of the Saturday lineup for the Brewers against Pittsburgh.

Segura has just five hits in his last 31 at-bats. He hasn't homered since slamming two on June 20.


Report: Bartolo Colon placed on revocable waivers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:44 pm ET) The Mets have placed veteran starter Bartolo Colon on revocable waivers, a source has told MLB Network Insider Ken Rosenthal.

It has been further reported that the Angels are particularly interested in Colon after having lost ace Garrett Richards for the season to injury. But Colon must pass through waivers before a trade can be worked out.

Colon has not been as effective with the Mets as he was a year ago in Oakland, but he has allowed just two runs in his last 15 innings pitched. He is 11-10 with a 3.86 ERA on the season.


Angel Pagan calf no problem as he remains in lineup
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:34 pm ET) Giants center fielder Angel Pagan is set to start Saturday in Washington. He had been removed from the Friday night game with a calf issue.

Pagan has heated up recently with seven hits in the last four games.


Adam Eaton begins rehab assignment Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:24 pm ET) White Sox center fielder Adam Eaton is set to start a rehab stint Saturday night with Triple-A Charlotte. He could be back in the lineup on the team's homestand next week.

Eaton has been sidelined with a right oblique injury sustained when he crashed into the fence trying in vain to catch a ball on Aug. 8.

He is eligible to come off the disabled list Sunday, but will spent more time with Charlotte to prepare for his return.


Jay Bruce absent from Saturday lineup
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:16 pm ET) Hitless in six of his last nine games, Reds outfielder Jay Bruce has been given the night off Saturday against Atlanta.

Bruce has, oddly, managed multiple hits in the other three games with two home runs and seven RBI. He boasts a still-disappointing stat line on the year of .219/.295/.380 with 14 homers in 397 at-bats.
