A's summon Aaron Brooks to start Saturday; Max Muncy optioned


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/29/2015) Athletics rookie right-hander Aaron Brooks has been called up and will start Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks. Brooks has made four appearances (three starts) since coming over from the Royals in a deal right before the July 31 trade deadline.

His last start came back on August 12, when he was rocked for eight runs over 1 2/3 innings. He pitched in relief two days later and was then sent down to Triple-A. 

To clear room on the roster, infielder Max Muncy was optioned to Triple-A Nashville.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/26/2015) Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman had one hit on Tuesday, but it was a big one. Zimmerman connected on his 10th home run of the season--a grand slam to put the Nationals up 8-2 in the sixth inning of the 8-3 victory over the Padres.

Half of Zimmerman's home runs this season have come in the 27 games since he returned from the disabled list at the end of July.

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.


1B Ryan Howard back in cleanup spot for Phillies


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/24/2015) Veteran first baseman Ryan Howard is back in the cleanup spot for the Phillies on Monday after not playing in the last two contests. 

Howard has been out of the Phillies lineup in five of the last six games, with Jeff Francoeur taking his familiar No. 4 spot in the lineup. Part of that is due to Philadelphia's youth movement and part of it had to do with the team facing four left-handed pitchers. 

"I'm ready to get back in there," Howard told the Philadelphia Daily News. "Ready to get home and try to get back after it."


Pirates activate SS Jordy Mercer, put 1B Travis Ishikawa on DL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2015) The Pirates have announced that they have activated shortstop Jordy Mercer off the disabled list and placed first baseman Travis Ishikawa on it with a back strain.

Mercer has been out for five weeks with a knee injury. It remains to be seen how often he plays considering the emergence of Jung Ho Kang at that position.

Ishikawa has played sparingly this season with just 12 hits in 59 at-bats over 39 games.


Report: Release imminent for Rangers INF Adam Rosales


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2015) Rangers utility infielder Adam Rosales has cleared waivers and declined an outright assignment, according to MLB.com, which is further claiming that he will soon be released.

Rosales owns a slash line on the year of .226/.296/.342, which is nearly identical to his career numbers.


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. 


Paul Goldschmidt powers D-Backs to victory with two homers


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/22/2015) Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt wasn't going to stay quiet for long. The MVP candidate broke out of a slump in a big way on Saturday, as he went 4 for 5 in the 11-7 win over the Reds.

Goldschmidt hit two home runs, drove in four runs, scored three and even stole a base, as he filled up the box score on Saturday. He launched a two-run home run in the first inning to give the D-Backs an early 3-0 lead. He added another two-run shot in the seventh, giving him 24 longballs on the year.

He also stole his 20th base, giving him his first-career 20-20 season.

Goldschmidt had gone 22 games since his previous home run, which came back on July 27.


Braves' Nick Swisher blasts two home runs in loss on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/22/2015) Nick Swisher had his finest performance as a member of the Braves on Saturday. Swisher, who was acquired by the Braves earlier this month, hit a pair of two-run home runs, but it wouldn't be enough, as the Braves fell to the Cubs 9-7.

Swisher now has three home runs in 11 games with the Braves--he had two in 30 games with the Indians prior to the trade.

The switch-hitting Swisher homered from both sides of the plate on Saturday, the 14th time in his career he has accomplished that feat.


Back injury forces Mets' Lucas Duda to 15-day disabled list


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/22/2015) Mets first baseman Lucas Duda has been placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a back injury. Duda was forced to exit Friday night's game in the seventh inning after his back locked up on him during the game. He missed six games last week due to the injury and now will have to miss at least 15 more.

"He obviously never fully healed to have it reoccur that quickly," assistant general manager John Ricco said, per ESPN.com. "We gave it a chance last time [without the DL]. The four, five, six days didn't knock it out. I think it's obvious we need to give it more time. While he was cleared to play last time, obviously there was still something in there that it reoccurred. So we decided this time to give it the full 15 days."

It is not yet known if Duda will require more than the 15 days to recover. The Mets recalled reliever Dario Alvarez to replace him on the active roster.


Angels recall INF Grant Green, option SP Nick Tropeano


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/22/2015) The Angels have recalled infielder Grant Green from Triple-A Salt Lake City. Green has gone back and forth between the big-leagues and Triple-A this year, as this will be his fourth stint with the Angels in 2015.

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 Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2015) Rockies first baseman Ben Paulsen isn't in the starting lineup for Saturday's game. Paulsen has started 55 games, including the last seven.
