Player News
Adam Lind his DL with foot fracture
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:37 am ET) The Blue Jays officially placed designated hitter Adam Lind on the disabled list Friday, following news that he could miss up to eight weeks with a foot fracture. Lind is still set to have a second opinion to determine a final timeline for his recovery from the injury.

Alex Guerrero homers in return to game action
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:22 am ET) Dodgers infield prospect Alex Guerrero saw game action for the first time Thursday since undergoing surgery on his ear following a fight.

Guerrero began his rehab assignment with the team's rookie-level affiliate in Arizona, serving as the designated hitter. He went 3 for 5 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in the game, his first since late May. 


Blue Jays DFA Bobby Korecky Friday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:07 am ET) The Blue Jays designated pitcher Bobby Korecky for assignment Friday, to clear up a spot on the 40-man roster.  

Korecky spent some time with the Blue Jays earlier in the season, allowing three runs in 3 1/3 innings of work.


No slowing J.D. Martinez down in July
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:04 am ET) Tigers outfielder J.D. Martinez has continued his hot-hitting ways in the month of July, as he put together another multi-hit effort in a 16-4 win over the Royals.

Four days after slugging his career-high 12th home run of the season, Martinez was held in the yard Thursday. He still managed to make his impact felt, reaching base three times and driving in three runs, while going 2 for 3 with a walk. He added a pair of runs scored in the win.

Martinez is hitting .429/.462/.829 with three home runs and nine RBI in nine July games.  


Dan Johnson to get the call for Blue Jays
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:59 am ET) The Jays will select the contract of infielder Dan Johnson from Triple-A Buffalo prior to Friday's game against the Rays, according to SportsNet.ca.

Johnson signed a minor-league contract with the Jays in the offseason, and was hitting .248/.402/.471 in 94 games at Buffalo. Adam Lind is expected to be placed on the disabled list with a foot injury in order to make room. 


Torii Hunter drives in three more in win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:51 am ET)  Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter has been scorching hot since the start of July, as he put together his sixth multi-hit game in nine chances in a 16-4 win over the Royals.

Hunter went 3 for 6 in the blowout win, with a solo home run. He drove in three runs overall and scored twice, bringing his RBI total for the month to 14 in nine games.

Hunter was hitting just .249 on July 1, but has raised his season average to .276 with his play since. He is hitting .444/.447/.750 with three home runs and 14 RBI in nine July games.


Carlos Santana hits homer No. 14
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:45 am ET) Indians catcher Carlos Santana had just one hit Thursday, but he made it count in a 9-3 win over the Yankees.

Santana went 1 for 5 with a two-run home run in the win, while striking out twice. It was his second home run of the month of July and 14th of the season.

Santana is hitting .208/.349/.391 in 81 games. 


Roberto Perez homers in big-league debut
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:36 am ET) The Indians got a big performance from catcher Roberto Perez in his major-league debut Thursday, in a 9-3 win over the Yankees.

Perez reached base three times in the win, going 2 for 3 with a walk. He added a home run and two RBI, while scoring twice.

Perez spent two days on the roster before getting his first action, so it is not clear how much playing time he might find moving forward. 


Jair Jurrjens sent down following second start
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:28 am ET) The Rockies optioned pitcher Jair Jurrjens to Triple-A Colorado Springs Friday, in order to clear a roster space for the return of Carlos Gonzalez from the disabled list.

Jurrjens made two starts for the Rockies, allowing eight runs over 9 1/3 innings, with nine strikeouts and a 2.46 WHIP. He could return to the rotation after the All-Star break if needed.  


Asdrubal Cabrera drives in three with triple
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:16 am ET) Indians infielder Asdrubal Cabrera put together his first multi-RBI in weeks Thursday, in a 9-3 win over the Yankees.

Cabrera reached base three times, and none of those times was more important than when he drove in three runs with a seventh-inning triple to tied the game. He finished the game 2 for 4 with one run scored and a walk in addition to his three RBI.

Cabrera had just one RBI in the first eight games of the month of July, and now has 37 RBI in 86 games overall. He is hitting .251/.312/.398 in 339 at-bats.
