Player News
Report: Gregorio Petit set for return to the bigs
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:09 pm ET) The Astros have promoted second baseman Gregorio Petit from Triple-A Oklahoma City, sources have told MLBDailyDish.com. That necessitates a roster move that has yet to be announced.

The 29-year-old Petit has 54 major league at-bats and has posted a .278 average, but has not played at that level since 2010 with Oakland.


Eury Perez comes off DL, sent to Triple-A
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:04 pm ET) The Nationals reinstated outfielder Eury Perez (toe) from the 60-day disabled list Friday, and then optioned him straight to Triple-A Syracuse. 

Chris Leroux get DFA tag from Yankees
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:56 pm ET) The Yankees have subtracted one Chris to make room for another. They have designated right-hander Chris Leroux for assignment to make room for fellow pitcher Chris Capuano.

Leroux had been promoted Wednesday from Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre and did not get a chance to pitch.


Matt Purke recalled, transferred to 60-day DL
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12:55 pm ET) The Nationals recalled pitcher Matt Purke from Double-A Harrisburg and then placed him on the 60-day disabled list, in order to clear a spot on the 40-man roster. Purke is recovering from Tommy John surgery and is out for the season.  

Report: Mariners have Drew Stubbs on their radar
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:11 pm ET) The Mariners have made a trade offer for Rockies outfielder Drew Stubbs, according to the Denver Post, which is further reporting that Colorado is hard-pressed to give him up and that no talks are ongoing.

Stubbs has enjoyed a strong season, though his home-away splits are pronounced. He owns a .351/.379/.619 stat line at the launching pad known as Coors Field and .229/.277/.343 on the road. Safeco Field is one of the tougher hitter's parks in major league baseball.

The report also claimed that Seattle has asked about such established hitters as Billy Butler and Marlon Byrd as well.


James Loney average production more pronounced lately
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:59 am ET) Rays first baseman James Loney has gained a reputation for a lack of power production despite a strong average. He has done nothing to dispel that perception in recent weeks.

Loney has improved his average from .273 to .284 with 17 hits in his last 47 at-bats and four multi-hit games in the last five. But he has just two extra-base hits with no home runs since July 1 and four RBI since July 2.

He has, however, been more than serviceable this season with 47 RBI and 41 runs scored in 99 games.


Justin Ruggiano remains sidelined by groin issue
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:52 am ET) Cubs outfielder Justin Ruggiano is out of the lineup again Friday against the Cardinals, as he continues to deal with groin soreness.  

Ruggiano has not played since Tuesday, and continues to receive treatment for the injury> He is day to day at this point. 


Pablo Sandoval maintaining productivity after break
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:48 am ET) Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval has taken the momentum gained before the All-Star break and run with it.

Sandoval had nine hits in six games before the break and is 10-for-31 since despite managing just one hit in the last two games. He has both scored and driven in seven runs in the last 10 games to sweeten his stat line to .277/.327/.433.


Walks keeping Kevin Kiermaier valuable despite mini-slump
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:42 am ET) Rays surprising rookie right fielder Kevin Kiermaier has cooled off a bit with the bat lately, but his eye at the plate has made up for it.

Kiermaier has just one hit in his last eight at-bats after an 11-for-18 tear, but has five walks in the last three games as his on-base percentage remains strong at .360. His eight home runs in 170 at-bats has resulted in a fine .553 slugging percentage this season.


Derek Jeter little more than singles hitter in swan song season
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:29 am ET) One might have expected that the production of 40-year-old future Hall of Fame shortstop Derek Jeter was destined to slip this season - and it has.

Jeter has been serviceable for the Yankees with a stat line of .270/.325/.320, numbers that pale in comparison to those he achieved even two years ago. He has just three hits in his last 17 at-bats with just one extra-base hit since July 1. He has not homered in more than a month.
