Braves 1B Freddie Freeman (oblique) leaves Monday's game


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Padres RP Brandon Maurer attributes fatigue to recent struggles


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9:11 pm ET) Padres reliever Brandon Maurer took his fourth loss of the season on Sunday, when he allowed a three-run, walk-off home run to the Marlins' Adeiny Hechavarria.

Maurer, who has already established a new career-high in appearances, has allowed seven earned runs over his past five innings of work, spanning seven outings. The right-hander believes fatigue could be a partial reason for his recent struggles.

"I've been tired the last couple days," said Maurer, per MLB.com. "I've stepped up the workload in the training room, trying to flex some stuff [inflammation] out.

"I got hit in the arm [in New York]. I think that might've had to do with my slider not being quite as sharp, pushing it more than snapping it off."

Overall, Maurer has had himself a good season so far. He is 7-4 with a 3.06 ERA in 50 innings of relief.

Strasburg has been on the disabled list for four weeks dealing with an oblique strain. He has made two rehab starts now, allowing five earned runs over 9 2/3 innings.

He could be back with the Nationals by the weekend, though the team has not made any official announcements regarding Strasburg's return.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:27 pm ET) Athletics right fielder Josh Reddick is indeed out of the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Orioles.

A's option OF Jake Smolinski to Triple-A on Monday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:24 pm ET) Athletics outfielder Jake Smolinski has been optioned to Triple-A Nashville. Smolinski, who was acquired as a waiver claim from the Rangers, was batting .320 (8 for 25) with two home runs and seven RBI over his first 11 games with Oakland.

Coco Crisp activated from DL, starting in LF on Monday for A's


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:21 pm ET) The Athletics activated outfielder Coco Crisp from the 15-day disabled list prior to Monday's game against the Orioles.

Crisp has been on the DL with a neck injury since around Memorial Day. He hasn't played a big-league game since May 19, and he has just two hits in 45 at-bats this season. However, he is in Monday's starting lineup, batting second and playing left field. 

In a corresponding move, Jake Smolinski was optioned to Triple-A to clear room on the 25-man roster.


Nationals OF Denard Span getting close to live batting practice


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:14 pm ET) Nationals outfielder Denard Span, who began baseball activities Saturday, could be close to taking live batting practice, manager Matt Williams said Monday.

“In the next couple of days we’ll get him out for a live BP session and then look for him to get some live BP later in the week," Williams said. "Then running the bases. That’s kind of of the final step. Depending on how he feels, we’ll progress to that. We’ll see."

Span, who is on the disabled list due to a back injury, will go on a rehab assignment before returning.

“Volume. It’s going to be volume, probably,” Williams said. “Limited in the cage is one thing, but getting out there and just reacting without having to think about it is key, too. But if he can go through multiple BP sessions and early work and regular defensive work that he does, then he should be fine to get out there and play somewhere.”
