by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:23 pm ET) Matt Williams expressed anger at Nationals slugger Bryce Harper after the latter was ejected for the third time this season Friday night for blowing up at umpire Jerry Meals.

Washington could have used Harper in a one-run, extra-inning defeat.

"I want him to stay in every game," Williams told MASNSports.com. "We've talked about it. We'll talk about it again."

Harper defended himself. "I was sticking up for my team and myself at the same time," he said. "(Meals) was bad all night."

Red Sox send RP Jonathan Aro back down to Triple-A
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:40 am ET) The Red Sox have demoted reliever Jonathan Aro to Triple-A Pawtucket, the Providence Journal has reported.

Lucky-to-be-alive RP Matt Marksberry zooms his way to Braves
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:21 am ET) It's all good these days for Braves rookie southpaw Matt Marksberry. He not only escaped uninjured when a passenger bus he was occupying flipped over on a North Carolina highway in mid-May. He has also skyrocketed through the organization and landed in the big leagues.

Marksberry has been called up from Triple-A Gwinnett - quite remarkable since he began the year at Class A. He feels happy not just to be with Atlanta, but to be healthy enough to pitch after the accident.

"It was more of a shock," he told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. "It was one of those things where it was just a scary moment, and I'm happy to be alive right now."

The 24-year-old Marksberry was promoted just one month after moving up from Class A to Triple-A. He was quite effective in the minors, compiling a 2.74 ERA in 33 relief appearances and fanning 43 in 46 innings pitched.

He then picked up where he left off in his major league debut, hurling 1 2/3 scoreless innings on two hits Friday night against Philadelphia.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Donaldson also scored a run and walked once. Over his last 10 games, Donaldson is hitting .350 with three home runs and 11 RBI.


Blue Jays send RP Ryan Tepera to Buffalo
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:08 am ET) The Blue Jays have optioned reliever Ryan Tepera to Triple-A Buffalo, per Sportsnet.

Tepera spent nearly a month with the big league club and performed well, posting a 2.28 ERA and allowing just 15 hits and four walks in 23 2/3 innings.


Blue Jays SS Troy Tulowitzki catching first break with new team
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:04 am ET) Just three games after joining the Blue Jays, shortstop Troy Tulowitzki has received his first day off. He is out of the lineup Saturday against Kansas City.

Tulowitzki is simply resting for a day game after a night game. He has also spent a great deal of time running around the bases, as his six runs in three games with Toronto attests. He has five hits, including two doubles and a home run, in those contests.


Gibbons: Blue Jays will not platoon OF Ben Revere
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:57 am ET) John Gibbons has changed his tune after declaring after the Blue Jays traded for outfielder Ben Revere that he would platoon against right-handers.

General manager Alex Anthopoulos has stated that Gibbons wants to play Revere every day, per the Toronto Star.

Revere was an every-day player for a Philadelphia team that was albeit nowhere close to Toronto offensively. He has batted .237 (22-for-94) against left-handers this season.
