Brewers OF Khris Davis leaves Saturday with undisclosed injury


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:06 pm ET) Brewers left fielder Khris Davis was forced to leave Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks with an undisclosed injury, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Davis left after an awkward final swing in the first inning and was replaced by Gerardo Parra in left. Davis is hitting .250 with 16 RBI in 148 at-bats this season.


Blue Jays veteran Maicer Izturis had tear in right shoulder


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:40 pm ET) Second baseman Maicer Izturis has a tear in his right shoulder that will be examined again before the Blue Jays determine the extent of the injury and how long he will be sidelined, per MLB.com.

Izturis sustained the injury while diving after a ball in a May 23 rehab game.

He has had 11 stints on the disabled list in 11 years. He appeared in just 11 games last year because of a torn ligament in his left knee.

Izturis appeared destined to earn the second base job with the Jays in spring training this season, but he strained a groin. He was on a rehab assignment for that when he suffered the latest setback.


Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts benched Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:28 pm ET) Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts is out of the lineup Saturday at Texas. He has been dealing with a forearm problem caused on a hit-by-pitch Thursday, but he played Friday.

His absence could be due instead to a horrible slump. Bogaerts is hitless in 15 at-bats since a 4-for-4 performance Sunday.


Nationals place struggling SP Stephen Strasburg on DL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:43 pm ET) The Nationals have announced that they have placed embattled starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg on the 15-day disabled list with neck tightness, which became an issue in his one-inning outing Friday night.

Taylor Hill has been promoted from Triple-A Syracuse to take his roster spot.

Strasburg, who has also been plagued by shoulder pain this season, has scuffled all year on the mound. He has not pitched more than 5 1/3 innings in any of his last six starts and is 3-5 with a terrible 6.55 ERA. He has allowed 64 hits in 45 1/3 innings. He was removed one batter into the second inning Friday at Cincinnati.

The right-hander has not shown typical signs of injury. His fastball remains consistently at 95 mph, which indicates that there is nothing wrong with his arm. But his mechanics and command have been an issue thoughout.


Report: White Sox 1B Jose Abreu out, but x-ray on finger OK


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:05 pm ET) White Sox standout Jose Abreu received good news Saturday when x-rays on his ailing finger came back negative, a source has told the Chicago Sun-Times.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:16 pm ET) Rays left-handed reliever C.J. Riefenhauser has been reinstated from the disabled list and optioned to Triple-A Durham, per the Tampa Tribune.

SP Jorge De La Rosa a no-go Saturday for Rockies


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Butler was supposed to pitch Monday.


Mariners 2B Robinson Cano should be fine for Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:34 am ET) The rather mysterious ailment that has sidelined Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano from the first two games of the weekend series against Cleveland is now believed to be an ear infection, per the Tacoma News Tribune.

He is expected to return to the lineup Saturday.

"He's better," Lloyd McClendon said after the game Friday. "His weight was steady today. No IVs. He still had some chills, but they gave him some type of medicine and they believe he should be ready to go."

Cano flied out as a pinch-hitter Thursday, but did not play Friday.


Orioles SP Bud Norris could pitch Wednesday in Houston


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:27 am ET) Orioles right-hander Bud Norris will either make his next start at Triple-A Norfolk or with the big-league club in Houston on Wednesday.

That's the word from Buck Showalter, per the Baltimore Sun. No decision was made earlier Friday because the Orioles wanted to see if Norris would be needed in an emergency bullpen appearance. But the eight-inning stint of Miguel Gonzalez made that unnecessary.

Norris is recovering from a severe case of bronchitis that has cost him 10 pounds. He has been out since May 10.


Rockies 1B Justin Morneau now on 15-day DL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:18 am ET) The Rockies have placed first baseman Justin Morneau on the 15-day disabled list with a cervical strain and concussion symptoms. He had already been on the 7-day concussion DL.

Morneau has been sidelined since May 13. His future status remains uncertain.


Padres 1B Yonder Alonso elevated to Triple-A in rehab


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:09 am ET) Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso is inching closer to a return from a shoulder injury that has him on the disabled list.

After two rehab games at Class A Lake Elsinore, he played Friday night at Triple-A El Paso, where he will remain for at least three games. He was 0-for-3, but walked twice and scored twice. Alonso is 1-for-9 in his rehab stint.

"He needs to see pitches and get at-bats," Bud Black told MLB.com.

Alonso will return with a fine slash line of .333/.427/.437.


Angels RP Joe Smith had stiff neck on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:51 am ET) Angels manager Mike Scioscia said reliever Joe Smith was unavailable for Friday's game against the Tigers due to a stiff neck, according to the Orange County Register.

Smith hasn't pitched since Tuesday, and his status for Saturday's contest is uncertain at this time. The veteran right-hander has a 3.80 ERA over 21 1/3 innings this season.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Mathis may need just three more rehab games, and could be activated as early as Monday, according to MLB.com.

Upon his return, Mathis will likely be the backup option to J.T. Realmuto.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The right-hander, who has experienced back and shoulder pain this season, will be evaluated on Saturday before the team makes any decision, according to MLB.com. His next start, tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, is very much up in the air at this point.

"We'll see how he is tomorrow," said manager Matt Williams, per MLB.com. "We'll see what he shows up with. This [injury] is new, so we have to address it."

"I don't know why. I felt fine the first inning," Strasburg said. "Once I sat down in the second, I felt it kind of tighten up. I put some hot stuff on it, and it just progressed. It's really hard to turn my head to the left. It was something where I couldn't ... be effective. I didn't want to push it too much."
