by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:50 am ET) The Athletics placed outfielder Coco Crisp on the 15-day disabled list Saturday due to a neck injury. Starting pitcher Kendall Graveman was recalled from Triple-A Nashville to take Crisp's spot on the roster.

X-rays negative on Red Sox LF Hanley Ramirez's left hand


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:20 am ET) X-rays came back negative on Red Sox left fielder Hanley Ramirez's left hand after he left the game Friday in the top of the sixth inning due to soreness, per MLB.com. Ramirez was hit in the hand by a pitch in the fourth inning.

"We'll check on him when he comes in [Saturday], but after the hit by pitch, he had a difficult time gripping the bat and we had to get him out of there," Red Sox manager John Farrell said after Friday's 12-5 loss to the Angels.

The injuries are piling up for Ramirez, who has struggled since suffering a left shoulder sprain May 4. Since hurting his shoulder, Ramirez has a .212/.241/.269/.510 slash line in his last 13 games. Prior to getting hurt, he had a .283/.340/.609/.949 slash line in 25 games.

"I'm going to strike out," Moss said, per MLB.com "You guys better get used to that. That's not going to change. I've always struck out. So, if that's something you want to write about, write about it. But the difference is when I'm not striking out, the balls put in play are driven, they're not missed."

Prior to his two-hit game Friday, Moss had been hitting .200 with one home run in his last five games.

Rangers seeking ways to keep Delino DeShields in lineup


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) The return of Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton as early as Monday in Cleveland could result in changes for hot-hitting Delino DeShields.

He is making it quite difficult for that move to be a benching.

"I hope he continues to make it challenging," Jeff Banister told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "We'll do everything we can as long as the young man continues to produce and play. These things usually have a way of working themselves out."

DeShields could find himself at second base, where Rougned Odor struggled and Tommy Field and Adam Rosales have split time. DeShields has yet to play there this season, but the Rangers would likely want to keep him and his .279/.405/.393 slash line in the lineup.

"None, really," he told the Boston Herald when asked about any reservations he has about struggling Hanley Ramirez. "Physically he hasn't said anything about it. He's had some days where he's swung the bat really well and has hit some balls hard. I'm not worried about Hanley. He'll get going again."

Ramirez has not driven in a run in May. He has just 11 hits in his last 51 at-bats.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/22/2015) A couple of injured Twins players are getting close to a return to the club.

Right-hander Casey Fien, who is on the disabled list with a shoulder injury, is expected to make a rehab appearance on Saturday for Triple-A Rochester, according to MLB.com. Fien threw a bullpen session on Wednesday, and once no issues were reported, he was cleared for the rehab assignment. 

Outfielder Oswaldo Arcia, who has been out of action with a hip injury, is scheduled to begin his rehab assignment with Triple-A on Sunday.
