A's recall RP Arnold Leon from Triple-A; Dan Otero sent down
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:33 pm ET) The Athletics have recalled right-handed reliever Arnold Leon from Triple-A Nashville. Leon has made seven appearances for the A's across several trips between the big leagues and Triple-A. In those seven games, Leon owns a 3.72 ERA over 9 2/3 innings.

He is taking the roster spot of Dan Otero, who was optioned to Triple-A on Monday. Otero has pitched frequently over the last few weeks, throwing 8 1/3 innings over his last six appearances. So it appears Oakland is making a move to get a fresh arm in the bullpen.


Mariners 1B Logan Morrison remains sidelined Monday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5:28 pm ET) Mariners first baseman Logan Morrison was held out of Monday's lineup at Colorado, reports the Seattle Times. Morrison was replaced at first base by Jesus Montero, who will bat sixth.

Morrison is dealing with a thumb injury and has not started a game since last Wednesday. He is hitting .158 with one double and four RBI in his last 14 games (10 starts).


A's RF Josh Reddick (back) unable to start on Monday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:27 pm ET) Athletics right fielder Josh Reddick is indeed out of the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Orioles. Reddick was forced to exit Sunday's game in the fifth inning with lower back tightness. The injury is not considered serious at this point, but it will cost him at least on start.

Sam Fuld is getting the start in right field while Reddick recovers.


A's option OF Jake Smolinski to Triple-A on Monday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:24 pm ET) Athletics outfielder Jake Smolinski has been optioned to Triple-A Nashville. Smolinski, who was acquired as a waiver claim from the Rangers, was batting .320 (8 for 25) with two home runs and seven RBI over his first 11 games with Oakland.

His demotion clears a spot on the 25-man roster for Coco Crisp, who is returning from the disabled list on Monday.


Coco Crisp activated from DL, starting in LF on Monday for A's
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:21 pm ET) The Athletics activated outfielder Coco Crisp from the 15-day disabled list prior to Monday's game against the Orioles.

Crisp has been on the DL with a neck injury since around Memorial Day. He hasn't played a big-league game since May 19, and he has just two hits in 45 at-bats this season. However, he is in Monday's starting lineup, batting second and playing left field. 

In a corresponding move, Jake Smolinski was optioned to Triple-A to clear room on the 25-man roster.


Nationals OF Denard Span getting close to live batting practice
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:14 pm ET) Nationals outfielder Denard Span, who began baseball activities Saturday, could be close to taking live batting practice, manager Matt Williams said Monday.

“In the next couple of days we’ll get him out for a live BP session and then look for him to get some live BP later in the week," Williams said. "Then running the bases. That’s kind of of the final step. Depending on how he feels, we’ll progress to that. We’ll see."

Span, who is on the disabled list due to a back injury, will go on a rehab assignment before returning.

“Volume. It’s going to be volume, probably,” Williams said. “Limited in the cage is one thing, but getting out there and just reacting without having to think about it is key, too. But if he can go through multiple BP sessions and early work and regular defensive work that he does, then he should be fine to get out there and play somewhere.”


Nationals RP David Carpenter set to resume throwing program
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:11 pm ET) Nationals reliever David Carpenter, who has been on the disabled list since July 12 due to right shoulder inflammation, can resume his throwing program after getting a second opinion on his injured shoulder, according to CSNwashington.com.

“He’s back on a throwing program and getting ready to go again. All the results are good and he’s building back up. He’ll go out and throw today and start that process,” manager Matt Williams said.


Rockies confirm Jon Gray will make MLB debut Tuesday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:04 pm ET) Starting pitcher prospect Jon Gray will make his MLB debut Tuesday against the Mariners, the Rockies confirmed Monday.

The 23-year-old Gray was the third overall selection in the 2013 MLB Draft. The hard-throwing right-hander is 6-6 with a 4.33 ERA and 1.49 WHIP in 21 outings (20 starts) at Triple-A this season. Although, his numbers are a little inflated due to a rocky start to the season. In his last 17 starts, he is 6-3 with a 3.17 ERA and .256 opponents' batting average.

Gray is 20-11 with a 3.82 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in three minor-league seasons. He is striking out 8.9 batters per nine innings.

He entered the season as a top-25 prospect, according to MLB.com, Baseball America and BaseballProspectus.com.


Mets SP Steven Matz plays catch from 60 feet
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:29 pm ET) Mets starting pitcher Steven Matz played catch from 60 feet Monday. The rookie left-hander has been on the disabled list since mid-July due to a partial tear in his lat muscle.

Pirates SP A.J. Burnett to miss four weeks due to elbow injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:27 pm ET) Starting pitcher A.J. Burnett was diagnosed with a flexor strain in his right elbow, the Pirates announced Monday. He received a platelet rich plasma (PRP) injection and his estimated time of recovery is four weeks.

The veteran right-hander is 8-5 with a 3.06 ERA in 21 starts, but the All-Star pitcher is 1-2 with a 10.13 ERA in three starts in the second half.
