Player News
Red Sox bring up 3B Travis Shaw, stick him in Saturday lineup
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:46 am ET) The Red Sox have promoted third baseman Travis Shaw, who is in the lineup and playing that position Saturday against Tampa Bay.

Shaw posted a .249/.318/.356 slash line at Triple-A Pawtucket before being summoned, though he did earn 15 at-bats with Boston earlier in the year.


Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval still out Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:41 am ET) Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval remains sidelined Saturday against the Rays after taking a pitch to the wrist Thursday. He has not played a full game since Tuesday.

Sandoval has just six hits in his last 34 at-bats.


Red Sox LF Hanley Ramirez back in action Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:37 am ET) Red Sox left fielder Hanley Ramirez is back in the lineup Saturday against Tampa Bay after losing one game to a shin problem.

Ramirez returns with three multi-hit performances in the last six games.


Blue Jays promote Munenori Kawasaki, DFA Ezequiel Carrera
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:33 am ET) The Blue Jays have announced that they have recalled second baseman Munenori Kawasaki from Triple-A Buffalo and designated outfielder Ezequiel Carrera for assignment.

Kawasaki has been tearing it up for the Bisons with 19 hits in 52 at-bats since his demotion in late June.

Carrera lost his job despite a hot streak in which he smacked eight hits in his last 14 at-bats to sweeten his slash line to .279/.327/.374.


Pirates 3B Jung Ho Kang collects three hits in Friday's win
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(10:30 am ET) Pirates third baseman Jung Ho Kang went 3 for 4 at the plate during Friday's 5-4 win over the Reds. He also drove in one run.

It was his second three-hit game in his last three contests. Over his last 12 games, Kang is hitting .467 with two home runs and four RBI.


Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen homers in Friday's win
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(10:23 am ET) Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen smacked his 15th home run of the season during Friday's 5-4 win over the Reds.

The solo shot was his only hit in four at-bats during the game. Over his last nine games, McCutchen is hitting .324 with three home runs and nine RBI.


OF Danny Valencia receives DFA tag from Blue Jays
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:19 am ET) The Blue Jays have designated for assignment left fielder Danny Valencia, who spent much of the season platooning against left-handers, per Sportsnet.

The move comes as a bit of a surprise. Valencia has performed well this season, compiling a .296/.331/.506 slash line with seven home runs and 29 RBI in 162 at-bats. He rebounded from a poor start in July to hit safely in seven of eight starts.


Scuffling Royals 3B Mike Moustakas sitting Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:08 am ET) A slump and the versatility of newcomer Ben Zobrist have Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas out of the lineup Saturday afternoon in Toronto.

Moustakas, who will give way to Zobrist, has finally tailed off after spending most of the year above .300. He has just six hits in his last 41 at-bats to drop his average to .283, its lowest point of the season. He has not driven in a run since July 22.


Rays call up Grady Sizemore on Saturday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(10:08 am ET) The Rays promoted Grady Sizemore from Triple-A on Saturday, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

Sizemore had been demoted to Triple-A last month after hitting .242 with two home runs and 13 RBI in 149 at-bats. He will play in left field during Saturday's game at Boston.


Mets OF Michael Cuddyer hopes to return next weekend
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(9:44 am ET) Mets outfielder Michael Cuddyer said he is making progress from his knee injury and is hopeful of returning next weekend in Tampa Bay, reports ESPN.com.

"I've done all baseball stuff. The next step is running," Cuddyer said. "I haven't tried that yet. Just casually walking and things like that. The last couple of days have been the best it's been in a month, since it's happened."

If Cuddyer continues to progress from the bone bruise in his knee, he would begin his rehab assignment early next week. When he does return, Cuddyer said he expects to play in right field and first base.
