Chris Denorfia still not in Saturday's lineup
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5:36 pm ET) Mariners outfielder Chris Denorfia has not played since he was scratched from Tuesday's lineup with a neck injury, and is not in Saturday's lineup against the Nationals. At this point, his status moving forward is not clear.  

Coco Crisp unable to return Saturday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5:33 pm ET) Athletics outfielder Coco Crisp is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Angels, as he continues to deal with the effects of a neck injury suffered the previous night.

Crisp exited Friday's game following a collision with the outfield wall, and will likely need at least a few days to recover. He is day to day at this point.  


Jimmy Nelson sent down, will return for Monday start
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5:26 pm ET) The Brewers sent pitcher Jimmy Nelson down to Class A Brevard County Saturday, to clear a spot on the active roster.

Nelson is expected back in time for his start against the Cubs Monday, with rosters expanding. He has a 4.10 ERA in 52 2/3 innings for the season. 


Alfredo Figaro added to Brewers 'pen
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5:20 pm ET) The Brewers recalled pitcher Alfredo Figaro from Triple-A Nashville Saturday, to provide bullpen depth. Figago has allowed one run in five innings of work at the major-league level this season. 

Aaron Thompson added to Twins bullpen
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5:19 pm ET) The Twins purchased the contract of pitcher Aaron Thompson from Triple-A Rochester Saturday, to take Samuel Deduno's roster spot.

Thompson has not appeared in the majors since 2011, and has a 3.98 ERA in 52 innings at Rochester this season.


Anthony Ranaudo sent back to Triple-A
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5:10 pm ET) The Red Sox optioned pitcher Anthony Ranaudo to Triple-A Pawtucket Saturday, after his third win of the season. He will likely return to the majors when rosters expand next week.  

Derek Holland brought off 60-day DL
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5:02 pm ET) The Rangers activated pitcher Derek Holland from the 60-day disabled list Saturday, well ahead of his season debut later in the week.

Holland, who has yet to pitch this season while recovering from knee surgery, will start Tuesday against the Royals. He posted a 4.43 ERA in 20 1/3 innings on his minor-league rehab assignment. 


Robbie Ross recalled from Triple-A
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4:54 pm ET) The Rangers recalled pitcher Robbie Ross from Triple-A Round Rock Saturday, ending his two weeks away from the team.

Ross struggled both as a starter and a reliever for the Rangers this season, posting a 6.06 ERA in 65 1/3 innings. He will be used out of the bullpen moving forward. 


Rangers send Nick Tepesch down
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4:52 pm ET) The Rangers optioned pitcher Nick Tepesch to Triple-A Round Rock Saturday, in order to clear a spot on the active roster. He shouldn't be gone long, however, as rosters expand next week, allowing him to return.  

Rangers DFA Mike Carp
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4:51 pm ET) The Rangers designated first baseman Mike Carp for assignment Saturday, ending his time with the team.

Carp hit just .125/.217/.125 in 40 at-bats for the Rangers, while spending less than a month with the team. He has yet to hit a home run in 59 games this season.
