Danny Salazar gets the call for start Tuesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4:25 pm ET) The Indians recalled pitcher Danny Salazar from Triple-A Columbus Tuesday as expected, ahead of his scheduled start against the Twins.

The Indians announced Salazar would be making this start days ago, so this move simply gets him on the official roster prior to the start. 


Erasmo Ramirez gets the call for start Tuesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4:11 pm ET) The Mariners officially recalled pitcher Erasmo Ramirez Tuesday, ahead of his scheduled start against the Mets that evening.  

Ramirez was announced as the starter the previous day, after spending a month in Triple-A. He had a 4.58 ERA in 53 innings in 11 major-league starts prior to being sent down.


Nick Martinez comes off DL for Tuesday start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3:47 pm ET) The Rangers activated Nick Martinez from the disabled list as expected Tuesday, ahead of his start against the Yankees that evening.

Martinez has been out with an injury in his left side since early July. He has a 5.10 ERA and 1-6 record in 67 innings heading into Tuesday's action.   


Blue Jays to DFA Brad Mills


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:38 pm ET) The Blue Jays will designate pitcher Brad Mills for assignment Tuesday, to clear a space on the roster.

Mills was claimed on waivers from the Athletics last week, and allowed eight runs on seven hits in two innings in his lone appearance. He has a 7.85 ERA in 18 1/3 innings overall. 


Yankees, Padres agree to Chase Headley trade


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:18 pm ET) The Yankees have acquired third baseman Chase Headley from the Padres Tuesday, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Headley has struggled this season, hitting just .229/.296/.355 in 77 games, though he has been hot lately. Though he has just one home run in the month of July, he is hitting .323 with a .785 OPS in the month, his best so far.

The Padres will reportedly receive infielder Yangervis Solarte and pitching prospect Rafael De Paula from the Yankees, while sending $1 million in cash to the Yankees. Solarte has slowed down from a hot start and is hitting just .254/.337/.381 this season, while DePaula has a 4.15 ERA in 89 innings for Class A Tampa this season. 


Report: Yankees looking in on John Danks


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12:28 pm ET) White Sox pitcher John Danks is drawing interest on the trading block, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, but that doesn't mean a deal is imminent.

According to Heyman's report, the Yankees are among the teams who have checked in on Danks. Talks are reportedly in the early stages, but the Yankees are interest in adding the left-hander, after having lost four starters due to injury.

Danks has a no-trade clause in his contract, though it is not clear if the Yankees are on that list. Danks has two years and $28.5 million remaining on his contract after this season, and has a 4.35 ERA In 124 innings.


C.J. Wilson to simulate workload in bullpen


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:24 am ET) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson got through a 50-pitch bullpen sessions Monday, and will take the next step in his recovery from an ankle injury in the coming days.

Wilson will throw another bullpen session Wednesday according to MLB.com, this time simulating a couple of innings of work. He will try to test how the ankle responds to getting up and down between throwing, and could go on a rehab assignment shortly after.  


Blue Jays recalling Aaron Sanchez, Ryan Goins


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:17 am ET) The Blue Jays plan to recall pitching prospect Aaron Sanchez and infielder Ryan Goins Tuesday, according to SportsNet.ca.

Sanchez is expected to pitch out of the bullpen for the Blue Jays, as he was converted to relief at Triple-A Buffalo. Goins' time with the team will likely be shorter, as he is being called up to cover for Steve Tolleson's paternity leave stint. 


Bud Norris strikes out eight in win vs. Angels Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:13 am ET) Orioles pitcher Bud Norris earned a win Monday, giving up two runs (one earned) on eight hits and two walks in 6 2/3 innings while striking out eight in his team's 4-2 victory over the Angels.

Norris (8-6) didn't fare well in his start with Double-A Bowie during the All-Star break but was able to keep the game in control Monday, giving up just one extra-base hit in the outing. He owns a 3.78 ERA and 70:31 K:BB ratio in 97 2/3 innings. Norris is lined up to face the Mariners Saturday.


Matt Shoemaker strikes out 10 in loss vs. Orioles


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:13 am ET) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker was hung with a loss Monday after giving up four earned runs on five hits in 5 2/3 innings while striking out 10 in his team's 4-2 defeat against the Orioles.

Shoemaker (7-3) matched his season high for strikeouts without issuing a walk, but he was doomed by a pair of two-run home runs by Adam Jones. The Angels pitcher owns a 4.54 ERA and 72:15 K:BB ratio in 69 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Tigers Saturday.


Justin Verlander surrenders three runs in win Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Verlander (9-8) gave up a pair of runs in the fourth inning and then served up a solo home run in the sixth, but he was able to hang on for his first quality start in his last three games. He owns a 4.84 ERA and 101:49 K:BB ratio in 135 2/3 innings. Verlander is scheduled to take on the Angels Saturday.


Angels not planning to shut down Garrett Richards


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:17 am ET) Though Angels pitcher Garrett Richards is on pace to shatter his previous career high in innings, the team is not planning to temporarily shut him down to limit his workload, MLB.com reports.

"Not at all," general manager Jerry Dipoto said Monday. "Garrett has thrown from end to end in a season. His innings have not escalated to the point where they're 200-plus, but Garrett throws the ball as easily as anybody you'll ever see. It's not a violent delivery, it's not a violent package. He maintains velocity pretty easily."

Richards has been at the top of his game since the start of June, going 7-0 with a 1.25 ERA and 70:17 K:BB ratio in 64 2/3 innings over nine starts. He hasn't pitched more than 154 innings in a season during his career, but Richards is already at 131 1/3 innings this year and has the potential to reach 200 innings if no limiting measures are taken.


Twins to recall Yohan Pino Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:10 am ET) The Twins cleared a roster spot after Monday's game and announced that pitcher Yohan Pino would be recalled before Tuesday's game, which he is scheduled to start.

Pino has made five starts for the Twins, going 1-2 with a 4.39 ERA and 9:7 K:BB ratio in 26 2/3 innings. He gave up five runs on three hits and seven walks in five innings with Triple-A Rochester on July 17.


Roenis Elias removed Monday with forearm cramp


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:07 am ET) Mariners pitcher Roenis Elias was removed in the sixth inning of Monday's start due to forearm cramping, MLB.com reports.

Elias was in the middle of an excellent outing before the injury, giving up just one earned run on five hits and two walks in 5 1/3 innings and striking out eight. He left in line for what would be his eighth win. Elias owns a 4.41 ERA and 104:42 K:BB ratio in 118 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Orioles Saturday if cleared.


Twins option Kris Johnson after Monday start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) The Twins optioned pitcher Kris Johnson after he surrendered two runs in five innings Monday. He was sent down to make room for another starter, Yohan Pino.

Kris Johnson gives up two runs vs. Indians Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Twins pitcher Kris Johnson wasn't a factor in Monday's decision, giving up two earned runs on five hits and three walks in five innings and striking out four in his team's 4-3 win over the Indians.

Johnson surrendered one run in the third inning and another in the fifth but was able to complete five innings for the first time in three starts this season. He owns a 4.73 ERA and 12:9 K:BB ratio in 13 1/3 innings. Johnson is scheduled to face the White Sox Saturday.


T.J. House surrenders three runs in no-decision Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Indians pitcher T.J. House didn't factor into the decision Monday, giving up three earned runs on six hits and three walks in five innings and striking out two in his team's 4-3 loss to the Twins.

House gave up a pair of runs on a double in the second inning and a third run on another double one inning later. He's surrendered exactly three runs in each of his last three starts, but he's lasted six innings just once during that stretch. House owns a 4.50 ERA and 32:14 K:BB ratio in 50 innings. He isn't scheduled to make another start but could be an option if Justin Masterson can't return this weekend.


Jeremy Guthrie stuck with loss Monday vs. White Sox


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie took a loss Monday after giving up three earned runs on five hits and three walks in six innings and striking out five in his team's 3-1 defeat against the White Sox.

Guthrie (5-9) has lost each of his last three outings, but Monday's quality start was his first of July. After surrendering two runs in the bottom of the first inning, the Kansas City starter was able to limit the White Sox to one run over the rest of the outing. Guthrie owns a 4.56 ERA and 80:35 K:BB ratio in 126 1/3 innings.


Chris Sale strikes out eight in win vs. Royals Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) White Sox pitcher Chris Sale kept rolling Monday, giving up just one earned run on seven hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out eight in his team's 3-1 victory over the Royals.

Sale (9-1) has rattled off seven straight quality starts, giving up just one earned run in each of his three July starts while striking out 26 batters and walking just one. He owns a 2.03 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 110:17 K:BB ratio in 102 innings. Sale will look to keep cruising Saturday against the Twins.


John Lackey gets plenty of support in win Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Red Sox pitcher John Lackey cruised to a win Monday, giving up one earned run on just two hits and no walks in seven innings and striking out three in his team's 14-1 victory over the Blue Jays.

Lackey (11-6) gave up back-to-back doubles to lead off the third inning, but he was still ahead 6-1 after the second double and didn't allow a single baserunner over the remainder of the outing. Lackey appears to be back on track after an ugly three-game stretch during late June and early July, and he owns a 3.66 ERA and 112:28 K:BB ratio in 103 1/3 innings. He's set to take on the Rays Saturday.


Drew Hutchison blasted in loss vs. Red Sox Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Blue Jays pitcher Drew Hutchison couldn't make it through three innings Monday, giving up six earned runs on nine hits in 2 2/3 innings while striking out two in his team's 14-1 defeat against the Red Sox.

Hutchison (6-9) surrendered a pair of runs in the second inning before Stephen Drew slugged a three-run home run in the third. The Blue Jays starter gave up a single and an RBI double immediately after the home run before getting yanked. Hutchison owns a 4.54 ERA and 102:38 K:BB ratio in 113 innings after getting rocked in his last two starts. He's slated to face the Yankees Saturday.


Ubaldo Jimenez could begin rehab assignment this week


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Orioles pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez could be ready to begin a rehab assignment by the end of the week, MLB.com reports.

The team hopes Jimenez will be ready to go out on assignment after completing a bullpen session Tuesday or Wednesday. He has been out for most of July while recovering from an ankle injury.


C.J. Wilson likely to need rehab assignment


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson said Monday that his sore ankle doesn't bother him while throwing but that he'll probably need a rehab assignment before returning from the disabled list, MLB.com reports.

Wilson is throwing his first bullpen session since going on the disabled list Monday. He struggled in his final four starts before being sidelined, giving up 19 earned runs in 16 2/3 innings. He owns a 4.33 ERA and 107:48 K:BB ratio in 116 1/3 innings.


Rubby De La Rosa not getting enough love


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/21/2014) Maybe it's because the Red Sox wouldn't commit to either him and Brandon Workman for their final rotation spot in the weeks leading up to the All-Star break, but for some reason, Rubby De La Rosa is owned in 38 percent of Fantasy leagues. On talent alone, he deserves better than that.

And now that he's likely secured his rotation spot with seven strong innings against the Royals Saturday, he deserves better on merit as well.

In seven major-league starts this season, he has a 2.64 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 7.1 strikeouts per nine innings. What more do you need to know than that? True, the strikeout rate could be higher for a player with his skill set, but simply knowing he has that skill set should only accentuate his performance so far.

Not every start has been a gem, but he's pitched seven innings or more in four of them and has mostly avoided the control problems that popped up from time to time in the minors. Plus, he's eligible at relief pitcher if that matters in your format.

Jeff Locke, Tom Koehler, Francisco Liriano and Chris Young are just a few of the starting pitchers owned in more leagues than De La Rosa who aren't as valuable as him in my eyes.


Orioles recall Bud Norris, option Steve Clevenger


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) The Orioles recalled pitcher Bud Norris from Double-A Bowie Monday and optioned catcher Steve Clevenger to Triple-A Norfolk.

Norris was sent down during the All-Star break to continue to see playing time. He threw 98 pitches for Bowie last Monday in his one minor-league outing. Clevenger has hit .240/.296/.373 with eight RBI in 75 at-bats.
