by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

"The second I’m capable of playing and I’m no longer injured, I’ll be back on the field," Votto said. "In the meantime, you can assume I’m injured. I shouldn’t get some sort of different treatment, as if this is — I’ve noticed little comments here and there and just a general perception that this is something I elected to do. I didn’t elect to be injured. I am injured. People get injured. I am injured. What can I do? At some point I’ll be back playing like I was playing before."

Votto has been sidelined since July 5 with a quad injury. He's hit .255/.390/.409 over 220 at-bats.

Ryan Zimmerman able to throw Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) Nationals infielder Ryan Zimmerman was able to throw Thursday, according to The Washington Post.

Zimmerman participated in a light throwing session prior to Thursday's game. He plans to repeat the drill from different distances depending on how his hamstring responds. Manager Matt Williams said it was a small step in Zimmerman's return to action. "It’s part of the strengthening process and getting him back to some baseball activity and working through that," Williams said. "That’s the early stages of it but it’s a step for sure."

Zimmerman has been working on an anti-gravity treadmill over the past weeks. He'll have to hit, run at full speed and run the bases before he returns. The last of which will be the most difficult according to Williams because Zimmerman "has to react and turn and create different angles." 

Williams told reporters Wednesday that he believes Zimmerman will return in September.

Edwin Jackson hits DL with strained lat


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, due to a strained right lat.

Jackson was chased in the third inning of his start Wednesday after allowing eight hits and seven runs, and it appears the injury is at least part of the reason. The team had discussed moving him to a bullpen role after Wednesday's outing, but that decision will have to wait until after this injury heals. At this point, there is no timetable for his return.

Jackson has struggled mightily this season even before the injury, with his ERA ballooning to 6.09 in 26 starts.

The Padres have apparently not yet ruled out a DL trip for Benoit to allow his shoulder to heal, though it is also not yet clear what the specific issue is at this point. A decision is expected to be made in the next few days, with Kevin Quackenbush expected to continue filling in as closer while Benoit is sidelined.


Edwin Jackson could be destined for bullpen role


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"We're going to assess and evaluate and see where we go," manager Rick Renteria said.

Jackson has turned in just two quality starts in his last nine outings, going 1-6 during that stretch and watching his ERA rise from 4.99 to 6.09.

"No one wants to be moved," Jackson said Wednesday. "The only thing you can do if you don't like it is go out there and pitch out of jams. I have to get back to having fun. Tonight was an example of absolutely not doing that. Just being uptight and battling yourself."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
