Ryan Zimmerman leaves with leg injury Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11:08 pm ET) Nationals infielder Ryan Zimmerman left Tuesday's game due to a leg injury.

Zimmerman left the game after trying to beat out a ground ball in the sixth inning. He was 0 for 3, with an RBI when he exited the game. Zimmerman laid on the ground for a bit before limping off the field with the team trainer. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined due to the injury. 


Michael Saunders not expected back before mid-August


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:06 pm ET) Mariners outfielder Michael Saunders could be slightly ahead of schedule in his recovery from an oblique strain, MLB.com reports.

Even though Saunders is recovering well, he isn't expected to return until mid-August at the earliest. "He's feeling better," manager Lloyd McClendon said. "He's getting better. He may be a little ahead of schedule, but that's going to be a while."


Start a good sign for Emilio Bonifacio


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9:42 pm ET) After missing more than a month with a strained oblique, Cubs utility player Emilio Bonifacio came off the DL Tuesday. But the bigger news for Fantasy owners is that he started his first game back. With Arismendy Alcantara now up in the big leagues and Chris Coghlan and Justin Ruggiano crushing it in recent weeks, his starting role was less than assured.

And frankly, it still is. Bonifacio's start Tuesday was against a left-hander, Eric Stults, and the switch-hitter entered the day batting .362 against lefties compared to just .230 against righties. Given that Chris Coghlan, who bats left-handed, was out of the lineup Tuesday, this could have the makings of a platoon.

As an everyday player, Bonifacio's steals potential and versatility would make him a nice find in Rotisserie leagues. As a part-timer, he's nothing more than waiver fodder.

If you need steals, you certainly have nothing to lose by making a move for him now, but understand he's hardly an open-and-shut case.


Alex Rios, Jake Smolinski expected to be available Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8:04 pm ET) The Rangers expect outfielders Alex Rios and Jake Smolinski to both be available Wednesday, MLB.com reports.

Smolinski was removed from Monday's game after fouling a ball off his foot. "As of right now, it's nothing to be concerned about," manager Ron Washington said Tuesday of Smolinski's injury. "It's just sore where it hit off his foot."
