Illness forces Indians to scratch Danny Salazar from Friday start
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:13 pm ET) Indians starter Danny Salazar has been scratched from his Friday night start against the Angels due to an illness. Trevor Bauer will take the mound in his place.

The Indians can ill-afford to lose Salazar for more than one outing. They are on the periphery of the playoff race and fellow right-hander Carlos Carrasco has already been placed on the disabled list with a shoulder ailment.

Salazar had been on a tear with seven straight quality starts until a subpar performance Saturday. He is 11-7 with a 3.30 ERA on the season.


Throwing sessions have Cardinals RP Matt Belisle optimistic
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:59 pm ET) Cardinals reliever Matt Belisle gave himself a positive report after a recent throwing session as he rehabs from right elbow inflammation.

"I had a great long-toss session and a great mound session," he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I did real well today throwing all my pitches on flat ground and I'll be back on the mound tomorrow, so we're rolling."

The veteran right-hander had performed well before going down in late June. If maintained, his 3.00 ERA would be his lowest since 2010.


Rays hopeful Desmond Jennings can return this season
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12:58 pm ET) Rays manager Kevin Cash said there is hope that outfielder Desmond Jennings will be able to return later this season, reports MLB Network Radio.

"I remain optimistic and hopeful," Cash said. "The injury is extremely unfortunate and frustrating."

Jennings was placed on the DL with a bruised left knee, which has caused him to miss most of the season.


Cardinals OF Randal Grichuk hasn't resumed baseball activities
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:53 pm ET) Cardinals outfielder Randal Grichuk is nowhere close to returning from elbow and ligament injuries that have sidelined him since Aug. 17, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Grichuk is undergoing therapy in the training room, but has yet to begin baseball activities. He was expected to miss at least 15 games, but it appears that he will be sidelined for many more than that.

When he does return, he will do so with a fine slash line of .284/.333/.561.


Cardinals' Matt Adams not ready for rehab assignment
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12:52 pm ET) Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams is still working his way back from a right quad strain and is not ready for rehab games, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Adams has been out since late May with a right quad injury and has been rehabbing in Florida.

Rangers 3B Kevin Kouzmanoff leaning toward retirement
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:42 pm ET) A back injury has Rangers third baseman Kevin Kouzmanoff leaning toward retirement, per CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman.

The 34-year-old Kouzmanoff has not played since April 2014. He was off to a brilliant start with Texas when two back surgeries ended his season and perhaps his career.


Red Sox OF Allen Craig trying to work his way back into majors
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:20 pm ET) Evidence is small, but just maybe Red Sox farmhand Allen Craig is beginning to rediscover the stroke and approach at the plate that made him one of the steadiest and most productive hitters in the National League just two years ago.

Craig owns a .448 slugging percentage with five doubles and a home run since Aug. 12 for Triple-A Pawtucket. The Red Sox might not promote him when the rosters expand in September, but they know he's making progress.

"It's the process with him," PawSox manager Kevin Boles told MLB.com. "Everybody wanted immediate results right away. What we're looking at is the quality of the at-bats and working a count."

Craig batted over .300 for three straight seasons in St. Louis, but struggled in 2014 and was traded to Boston, where he bottomed out to start this year. His current slash line of .275/.370/.353 indicates that he is at least getting on base. Beyond that, he's just seeking baby steps.

"The goal is to get back to the big leagues," he said. "I try not to look too far in the future. Just try to focus on today, take care of what I need to take care of. I don't make those decisions. I just need to focus on playing."


Yankees reinstate Bryan Mitchell from DL
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11:26 am ET) Yankees pitcher Bryan Mitchell was activated from the 7-day concussion DL on Friday, the team announced.

Mitchell has not played since Aug. 17 after being hit in the face by a line drive, which caused a nasal fracture and concussion.


Cardinals to reevaluate Matt Holliday this weekend
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11:19 am ET) Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday will return this St. Louis this weekend so the team can reevaluate his quad injury, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Holliday has been able to conduct running exercises at the team's spring training complex in Florida. He has been out since late May due to a right quad strain.


Cardinals' Jon Jay nearing rehab assignment
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11:14 am ET) Cardinals outfielder Jon Jay will report to Triple-A on Friday in the hope of beginning his rehab assignment soon, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

When Jay will begin his rehab assignment will depend on how he's feeling after taking batting practice for the last three days. Jay is dealing with a wrist injury, which has kept him out since late June.
