Craig Kimbrel blows away Padres for 32nd save
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:27 pm ET) Braves closer Craig Kimbrel left no doubt about his dominance Monday against San Diego. He not only retired the Padres in order to close out a victory, but he struck out the side in the process.

Kimbrel is now tied with St. Louis closer Trevor Rosenthal for the major league lead in saves with 32. He has allowed just one earned run in 13 appearances since June 20.


Mark Teixeira aiming for Tuesday return
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5:25 pm ET) Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira will take batting practice Sunday in Arlington, and if all goes well, he may be able to return to the starting lineup on Tuesday, MLB.com reports.

Teixeira was sidelined for his eighth consecutive game on Monday against the Rangers, but told reporters he feels some improvement. It remains to be seen if he'll be available off the bench for Joe Girardi.

Teixeira is hitting .231 over 273 at-bats. He still leads the club with 17 home runs and 48 RBI, despite having missed 28 games this season..

Evan Gattis gathers momentum with one-man show Monday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:23 pm ET) Catcher Evan Gattis was pretty much the entire Braves offense Monday in a victory over San Diego. He opened the scoring and the seventh with a home run, then singled in the only other run of the game an inning later.

Gattis has emerged from a slump that plagued him upon his return from a back injury. He had one hit in 13 at-bats before slamming five hits in the last two games combined. The tater was his first since June 18.


Blue Jays hope to have Brandon Morrow back in September
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5:20 pm ET) Blue Jays pitcher Brandon Morrow (finger) is in Florida continuing his throwing program, according to Sportsnet.ca. He has been throwing bullpens every other day and could return to the team as a reliever, if needed. Manager John Gibbons indicated that he could be back from the disabled list as early as September. 

Ervin Santana rolls merrily along in defeat of Padres
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:18 pm ET) Braves right-hander Ervin Santana remained on a strikeout tear while snagging his third consecutive win Monday against San Diego.

Santana pitched eight shutout innings on five hits and tied a season-high by fanning 11 while walking none. He has thrown seven consecutive quality starts to lower his ERA to 3.63, its lowest point since May 21.

He is set to start Saturday in San Diego against the same Padres.


Billy Burns gets the call Monday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5:17 pm ET) The Athletics have called up outfielder Billy Burns from Double-A Midland prior to Monday's game against the Astros in Houston, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The speedy outfielder has swiped 51 bases in the minors. He hit .250 with one home run, 20 doubles, three triples and 23 RBI in 364 at-bats before the promotion.

Jason Lane a winner despite loss Monday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:13 pm ET) The oldest pitcher to make his starting debut in Padres history certainly distinguished himself Monday in Atlanta despite taking the defeat.

Jason Lane, who will turn 38 in December, yielded just one run on six hits in six innings. He walked none, fanned two and remained in the game until yielding a homer to Evan Gattis in the seventh inning.

If he has earned another start, his turn would come this weekend against the same Braves in San Diego.


Craig Gentry placed on DL with broken hand
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5:13 pm ET) The Athletics placed outfielder Craig Gentry on the 15-day disabled list Monday because of a broken hand, the San Francisco Chronicle.

Gentry played in place of Coco Crisp on Sunday, and was hit by a pitch on his right hand against the Rangers. He underwent an MRI, which revealed a non-displaced fracture.

Gentry is expected to be out a "couple of weeks," according to Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. He owned a .264/.326/.299 slash line with 10 RBI in 197 at-bats prior to the injury.


Billy Burns skips level and joins Athletics
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:04 pm ET) Speedy outfielder Billy Burns has been promoted by the Athletics from Double-A Midland after swiping 51 bases in just 56 attempts at that level this season.

Burns has struggled at times hitting his way on base, as his .250 average attests. But he has shown a good eye at the plate with 44 walks in 364 at-bats, leading to a .350 on-base percentage and 57 runs scored.


Drew Stubbs out again Monday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4:59 pm ET) Rockies outfielder Drew Stubbs was not in the team's starting lineup Monday.

Stubbs is dealing with an ankle injury. This is the second game Stubbs has missed due to the issue. He's hitting .302/.338/.517 over 242 at-bats.
