by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Justin Ruggiano dealing with a groin injury


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) Cubs outfielder Justin Ruggiano is dealing with groin soreness, according to MLB.com.

Ruggiano hasn't played since Tuesday, and spent Thursday putting in extra work with team trainers. Manager Rick Renteria said Ruggiano was doing better Thursday. Ruggiano is hitting .291/.357/.442 over 165 at-bats. 


Angel Pagan could return soon


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) Giants outfielder Angel Pagan could return soon, according to the Mercury News.

Pagan is attempting to come back from a back injury. He may be able to return for the club's next road trip, according to manager Bruce Bochy. The team's next road trip begins August 1. Pagan was hitting .307/.356/.411 over 241 at-bats prior to the injury. 


Jorge Soler not the worst stash in the world


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/24/2014) Cubs outfield prospect Jorge Soler has played all of 22 games above Class A, which would suggest he's still a ways from reaching the big leagues. And yet what he did in those 22 games got him promoted from Double- to Triple-A, which would suggest he's on the fast track.

As I pointed out in this week's Prospects Report, it would make sense. Soler is unique from most other prospects in that he's already signed to a long-term deal. The Cubs are paying him the same through 2020 no matter when he arrives or what he does, so they only hurt themselves by holding him back. Certainly, they want him ready, but a .415 batting average and 1.355 OPS at Double-A, if only in 22 games, is a pretty good indication he is.

If he keeps it up at Triple-A, the Cubs might decide to cash in on all the money they're paying him and run him out there for the last six weeks or so. And given his experience from Cuba, it wouldn't necessarily be a case of him just getting his feet wet.

Granted, a lot has to go right for all that to happen, but it's a likely enough scenario for you to take a flier on Soler if you don't like what you see on waivers.


Oscar Taveras could be headed back to minors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak admitted if outfielder Oscar Taveras doesn't start to heat up offensively and see regular playing time, then the team might have to send him back to the minors, per MLB.com.

"He is still somebody that we view as a prospect, and at some point he's going to need to play more," Mozeliak said of Taveras. "Whether that is here or back in the minors, for his development, getting at-bats is important.

"At the major-league level, I understand that you have to try to go with the hot bat -- or in this case to try and get both guys going. It's not an easy task. As you can imagine, it's a fine balance between sitting and playing. Currently, it's not a great situation for either one. Hopefully, in the next week or two, it might find a way to be resolved. If not, there are obviously some answers to help create playing time."


Curtis Granderson back in Mets' starting lineup


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson returned to the starting lineup Thursday against the Brewers after sitting out two games due to an illness. Granderson is batting .250 (16 for 64) with three doubles, three home runs and seven RBI in 16 July games.

Phillies manager eyeing platoon with Ryan Howard


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard was out of the lineup for the second game in a row Thursday against the Giants in favor of Darin Ruf, and manager Ryan Sandberg told MLB.com this might become a recurring theme.

"The way I see things," Sandberg said. "I basically wanted to give Ruf two days in a row, just to get his feet wet, see him against a right-handed pitcher, then go from there. But in all likelihood, at least after today it will be a scenario of ... I'd be considering a platoon system at first base."

Howard was actually out of the lineup against a right-handed pitcher Thursday, but Sandberg said he wanted to give Darin Ruf two consecutive starts after his callup. The Phillies face two left-handed pitchers during a three-game series against the Diamondbacks beginning Friday, so Sandberg may also get him some time off then.

Howard is struggling against both right and left-handed pitchers this season, but has 10 of his 15 home runs against righties. He is hitting .229/.314/.368 against righties, compared to .209/.275/.407 vs. the opposite hand. 


Angel Pagan hits soft toss Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
