Royals 1B Eric Hosmer, 3B Mike Moustakas set to sit Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:01 pm ET) Royals sluggers Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas are both catching breaks Saturday against the host Cubs.

The former has started every game at first base this season while the latter has missed just three at third base.

Both are in mini-slumps. Hosmer has not managed a multi-hit game since May 14 and is 9-for-44 during that stretch with no home runs. Moustakas is batting .200 in his last seven games.


Nationals bring up Taylor Hill to pitch out of bullpen
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:51 pm ET) Nationals pitching prospect Taylor Hill has been promoted from Triple-A Syracuse to take the place of shelved starter Stephen Strasburg.

Hill has started nine games for the Chiefs this season, but will work out of the bullpen for Washington. He made three appearances for the Nationals last season, including one start, and posted a 9.00 ERA.

Taylor Jordan, who relieved Strasburg on Friday and pitched 4 2/3 innings, seems to be the likely replacement in the rotation.


Nationals place struggling SP Stephen Strasburg on DL
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:43 pm ET) The Nationals have announced that they have placed embattled starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg on the 15-day disabled list with neck tightness, which became an issue in his one-inning outing Friday night.

Taylor Hill has been promoted from Triple-A Syracuse to take his roster spot.

Strasburg, who has also been plagued by shoulder pain this season, has scuffled all year on the mound. He has not pitched more than 5 1/3 innings in any of his last six starts and is 3-5 with a terrible 6.55 ERA. He has allowed 64 hits in 45 1/3 innings. He was removed one batter into the second inning Friday at Cincinnati.

The right-hander has not shown typical signs of injury. His fastball remains consistently at 95 mph, which indicates that there is nothing wrong with his arm. But his mechanics and command have been an issue thoughout.


Ankle of Orioles CF Adam Jones not so 'swell'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Showalter could not say with certainty that his absence will be just for one game.

Jones had started every game this season. He has just one multi-hit game since May 20, but still boasts a fine stat line of .304/.343/.457.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The 20-year-old Castro was removed from his Friday night start against Buffalo, where he was getting stretched out in his conversion from reliever to starter. He threw 44 pitches before being taken out.

Hechavarria, who is also expected to miss the Sunday game, is getting his shoulder checked by a doctor Saturday.

The Marlins will miss him. He has also hit safely in seven of his last eight games.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:19 pm ET) A matchup against Mets left-hander Jonathon Niese has Marlins first baseman Justin Bour out of the lineup Saturday.

White Sox RF Avisail Garcia back for White Sox on Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Garcia hopes he can heat back up at the plate. He has just three hits in his last 17 at-bats.


Report: White Sox 1B Jose Abreu out, but x-ray on finger OK
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Abreu left the game in the eighth inning Friday with the finger issue. He is not in the Saturday lineup in Houston.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
