by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Blanks has only appeared in 18 games for the Rangers this season, after missing previous time on the DL due to a pilonidal cyst. It is not yet known when the Rangers expect Blanks to be activated and return to the lineup.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Orioles activate 1B Steve Pearce, place SS J.J. Hardy on DL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2015) The Orioles have activated first baseman Steve Pearce from the disabled list and recalled right-hander Jorge Rondon from Triple-A Norfolk.

To create room for those players, they have placed shortstop J.J. Hardy on the disabled list with a groin injury and designated for assignment veteran outfielder Nolan Reimold.

Hardy has been plagued by the groin ailment for a while. He is batting .157 (11-for-70) in August.


Blue Jays recall C Josh Thole and option Matt Hague to Triple-A


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/23/2015) The Blue Jays have recalled catcher Josh Thole from Triple-A Buffalo. Thole was sent down to the minors in early June, after going 7 for 26 in nine games for Toronto.

His numbers haven't gotten a whole lot better with Buffalo, as he owns a .228 average with no home runs in 45 games.

But, Thole does have plenty of experience in catching knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, who is scheduled to start Sunday against the Angels. So it is likely that Thole will be in the lineup for the series-finale on Sunday.

To clear room on the roster, first baseman Matt Hague was sent down to Triple-A.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Green is in the starting lineup on Saturday, as he will be at second base and bat ninth against the Blue Jays.

To clear room on the roster, Nick Tropeano--who started on Friday--has been optioned back to Triple-A.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/21/2015) Orioles infielder/outfielder Steve Pearce appears to be nearing a return from the disabled list.

Bone bruise could land Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira on DL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2015) The Yankees might be forced to place slugging first baseman Mark Teixeira on the disabled list with a bone bruise in his right leg that is not improving much, per the New York Post.

"It's not a whole lot better," Joe Girardi said. "...Hopefully one day he will come in and really turn the corner."

Teixeira was sidelined for a second straight game Wednesday and won't play Thursday either. Girardi declined to put a timetable on the date of his return.

Teixeira has struggled lately with just four hits in his last 31 at-bats, but is still having a renaissance season in terms of power with 31 homers.

In a corresponding roster move, the Tigers optioned infielder Jefry Marte to Triple-A.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cook has been a mess with the Athletics and Red Sox in 2015. He has given up 17 hits in 6 1/3 innings and compiled a disturbing 19.89 ERA.

The 28-year-old Carrera performed well in a stint with Toronto earlier in the season, posting a .279 average before being designated for assignment on Aug. 1.
