by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2015) Padres catcher Tim Federowicz, who has been sidelined all season due to knee surgery, said Monday he might begin a rehab assignment Thursday, per MLB.com.

He worked on blocking baseballs in the dirt with lateral shifting Monday. He said that was probably his last hurdle before being cleared for a rehab assignment.


Padres catcher Derek Norris gets first start in leadoff spot Monday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2015) Padres catcher Derek Norris moved into the leadoff spot Monday against the Pirates for the first time this season, becoming the ninth San Diego player to hit leadoff in 2015. This is Norris' first career start atop the lineup, but he made four plate appearances over two games in the leadoff spot in 2014.

Norris has been mired in an offensive slump over the last month. Since June 6, he is batting .163 in his last 27 games. However, he does have five home runs in that span.


Nationals C Wilson Ramos dedicates homer to daughter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2015) Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos didn't just blast off for his team Sunday night. His solo home run was a sort-of birthday present for his daughter.

"Soon as I hit the ball, I felt in my bat that ball is gone," he told masnsports.com. "...It made me feel good for this day I hit well. Especially this day, because my daughter have 11 months today. I did today for her. It made me really happy today."

It didn't exactly make Matt Williams sad. He was impressed not just by the home run, but by Ramos' RBI single in the eighth.

"That's vintage Wilson," Williams said. "Man on third, line drive back through the middle. He's got the ability to do that. That's why he hits in the middle of the order, because he's an RBI guy. He's a run producer. He stayed on a first-pitch slider and delivered."

Ramos is on a bit of a roll with five hits in his last 12 at-bats to sweeten his slash line to .266/.294/.411.


Diamondbacks catcher Welingon Castillo hitting his stride


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2015) Things are looking up for Diamondbacks catcher Welington Castillo. Not that his season could have reached much greater depths.

Castillo is finally receiving significant playing time with Arizona and has responded. He has hit safely in 10 of his last 12 starts and walked twice in one of the others. The result is an average that has soared from .150 to .213 since June 10 with five doubles and three home runs.

His on-base percentage of .282 is at its highest point since May 7, when he was still playing for the Cubs.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Over his last three games, Ramos is hitting .426 with five hits, a home run and three RBI.


NL starters announced for 2015 All-Star Game


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/5/2015) The National League starters for the All-Star Game were announced Sunday, and leading the way after an impressive first half is Nationals slugger Bryce Harper, who racked up nearly 14 million votes to pace the field. 

Harper entered Sunday's game with a .344 average, 25 home runs and 60 RBIs, numbers that have him squarely in the conversation for the Triple Crown. He'll be joined in Cincinnati by players from an array of teams, unlike the AL's Royals-heavy squad. 

Catcher: Buster Posey, Giants
First baseman: Paul Goldschmidt, Diamondbacks
Second baseman: Dee Gordon, Marlins
Third baseman: Todd Frazier, Reds
Shortstop: Jhonny Peralta, Cardinals
Outfield: Bryce Harper, Nationals
Outfield: Matt Holliday, Cardinals
Outfield: Giancarlo Stanton, Marlins 


Phillies C Carlos Ruiz comes up big in extra-inning win


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/5/2015) Catcher Carlos Ruiz had two hits and drove in a pair of runs as the Phillies pulled out a 10-inning victory over the Braves on Sunday. 

Ruiz's biggest hit came in the 10th, when Philadelphia had just grabbed a 1-0 lead on a Ryan Howard sacrifice fly. Ruiz followed with a double to deep left field, giving the Phillies the insurance runs they needed to pick up the win. 

Ruiz's offensive numbers are down from his prime, but he does have four RBIs and three hits in his last four games to raise his season total to .223. 


A.J. Ellis gets start for Dodgers, in place of Yasmani Grandal


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2015) Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal isn't in the starting lineup for Sunday's game. Grandal has started a team-high 56 games behind the plate, including six of the last seven. 

In Grandal's place, A.J. Ellis gets the start at catcher for the 25th time this year. Ellis and Grandal have split the last four starts. 


Padres' Tim Federowicz to start month of rehab games soon


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2015) Padres catcher Tim Federowicz could start a minor league rehab assignment within the next 10 days, manager Pat Murphy said, per U-T San Diego.

Federowicz is on the 60-day disabled list after having knee surgery in mid-March. Murphy said Federowicz would use most, if not all, of the month of rehab games he's permitted in order to get into MLB game shape. 


Diamondbacks activate C Oscar Hernandez from DL; Dorn optioned


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/4/2015) The Diamondbacks have reinstated catcher Oscar Hernandez from the 60-day disabled list, the team announced on Saturday. Hernandez has been out all season due to a broken hand.

Hernandez played in 13 rehab games, going 8 for 38 with three RBI.  

As a Rule 5 draft pick, the Diamondbacks must keep a healthy Hernandez on the 25-man roster, or risk losing him back to the Rays.

The D-Backs have optioned outfielder Danny Dorn to Triple-A to clear room on the roster for Hernandez.


Cubs C David Ross placed on 7-day DL; Taylor Teagarden recalled


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/4/2015) The Cubs have placed catcher David Ross on the 7-day disabled list due to a mild concussion. The move is retroactive to Thursday. Ross left Wednesday's game in the seventh inning, though no injury was reported at the time.

Still, Ross will take the minimum seven days to recover from the concussion.

"I had a three-day headache and some nausea," Ross said Saturday, per ESPN.com. "It's nice for the seven-day DL where you can take a step back. I think the main concern is just getting another foul ball. I had that happen a couple of years ago, and it put me out about two months. I don't want to go through that again."

Taylor Teagarden was recalled from Triple-A to be the backup catcher in Ross' absence.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2015) Padres catcher Derek Norris suffered a sprain of the AC joint in his left shoulder during Friday's game, per U-T San Diego.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Cubs C Miguel Montero belts two-run home run on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/2/2015) Cubs catcher Miguel Montero slugged his 10th home run of the season in the 6-1 win over the Mets on Thursday. Montero's two-run shot came in the ninth inning with his team already up by three runs, so the home run came as little consequence to the outcome of the game.

The home run was Montero's first since June 13, breaking a 13-game drought. His season-high is 18, which came in 2011.
