Yankees moving Dellin Betances back into setup role
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:02 pm ET) Yankees manager Joe Girardi told reporters Tuesday that reliever Andrew Miller (forearm) will be activated off the disabled list Wednesday. He also added Miller will return to the closer's role, which means Dellin Betances will head back to a setup role.

Betances suffered his second blown save of the season Saturday against the Rays. However, he still picked up the win, as New York plated the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Since Miller went on the DL on June 11, Betances went 1-1 with a 5.59 ERA in eight outings. He went 5 for 6 in save chances in that span.

Ellsbury had been struggling before landing on the DL. Over his last 10 games, he's batting .200 with one extra-base hit. He does sport a nice .324 batting average for the season.

Reds LF Marlon Byrd gets day off amid 11-game hit streak
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:16 pm ET) Reds left fielder Marlon Byrd was held out of the starting lineup Tuesday against the Nationals in favor of Skip Schumaker, who drew the start against Max Scherzer. It was the second time Byrd did not start since coming off the disabled list June 19.

Byrd has done well offensively since his activation. He has hit safely in 13 of 15 games since his returning, which includes hitting safely in his last 11 games. He is batting .347 (17 for 49) with one double, three home runs, six RBI, six runs and 11 strikeouts in that span.

Byrd's hit streak is tied for the third-longest of his career, per Baseball-Reference.com. Byrd's career-long hit streak is 16 games, which he accomplished in 2011.
