by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:43 pm ET) Tigers pitcher Joakim Soria threw off flat ground from 140 feet before Tuesday's game, MLB.com reports.

"Soria felt absolutely nothing for the first time, which was a great sign," manager Brad Ausmus said. "Because the Minor League seasons are over, though, I honestly don't know what the next step will be."

Soria is likely to throw batting practice at the major-league level rather than go on a rehab assignment. He has been sidelined since Aug. 10 with a strained oblique.


Dustin Pedroia still dealing with concussion symptoms


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:38 pm ET) Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is still dealing with concussion-related symptoms, MLB.com reports.

"Yesterday when he tried some activity, he didn't feel quite right, and I say that only because it's hard for me to categorize or specifically define what he's feeling," manager John Farrell said Tuesday. "There's some inconsistencies with his sleep. These are symptoms consistent with a concussion and we've got to be cautious with this and go day to day."

Pedroia remained out of the lineup Tuesday and figures to stay off the field until he feels right.

Reds considering surgery for Homer Bailey


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Having surgery would be troublesome, as it could impact Bailey's readiness for the 2015 season. "If you're going to have a surgical procedure done, you don't want to wait too long because it will affect the ability to be ready for the season," Price added.

GM hints that Carlos Rodon won't be coming up


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7:05 pm ET) White Sox general manager Rick Hahn indicated pitching prospect Carlos Rodon won't be called up during September, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

"It just wasn’t right time in [Rodon's] development to bring him to the big leagues and and ask him to get big league hitters out," Hahn said. Rodon was the third overall pick in the June draft, but was thought to be one of the closest players to the majors. The club could still bring Rodon up during the month, but it seems unlikely given Hahn's comments.
