Rockies OF prospect David Dahl (spleen) out indefinitely


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:23 pm ET) Rockies outfield prospect David Dahl is sidelined indefinitely after sustaining a spleen injury during an on-field collision Thursday, the team announced Friday. 

Rockies senior director of player development Zach Wilson said Dahl, who is playing for Double-A New Britain, underwent surgery to repair his spleen. However, he did not suffer any bone fractures and did not suffer a concussion.

"There is no timetable on David's return," Wilson said in a press release. "The organization is in contact with David and his family. They are in our thoughts as we wish him the best."

According to MiLB.com, Dahl rushed in from center field in the sixth inning of Thursday's game against Altoona to field a fly ball. Shortstop Trevor Story and second baseman Juan Ciriaco also chased the play. Story turned off before the ball fell, but Ciriaco continued his path, leaping to avoid Dahl but instead striking the outfielder's head and torso area with his knee. Dahl stayed on the ground following the collision, but walked off under his own power.

The 2012 first-round pick has a .269/.296/.379/.675 slash line in 44 games. He is considered a top-100 prospect by Baseball America (No. 22) and MLB.com (No. 59).


Astros SP Scott Feldman on DL with torn meniscus


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:21 pm ET) The Astros have placed veteran right-handed starter Scott Feldman on the 15-day disabled list after he underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee to repair a torn medial meniscus.

The team has promoted starting pitcher Michael Feliz from Double-A to take his place on the roster. He could work out of the bullpen.

Brett Oberholtzer has been mentioned as the leading candidate to replace Feldman in the rotation.

Feldman has performed well in 2015, playing a role in the team's surprising start. He has six quality starts in his last eight outings.


Inconsistent Steve Pearce set to sit Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:05 pm ET) The all-or-nothing performance at the plate and struggles against right-handers from Steve Pearce has him out of the Orioles lineup Friday against Tampa Bay.

Pearce is 14-for-77 against righties this season. He has just four hits in his last 24 at-bats - and three of them were home runs. His average is down to .194.


Cody Asche playing left field Friday for Phillies


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:54 pm ET) The Phillies have wasted no time getting Cody Asche into the lineup after promoting him. He is set to play left field and bat sixth Friday night against visiting Colorado.

Asche had been sent to the minors to learn his craft in the outfield. He hopes to return with a hotter stick - he was on a 3-for-29 slide before leaving.


Phillies designate outfielder Grady Sizemore for assignment


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:30 pm ET) Phillies outfielder Grady Sizemore was designated for assignment Friday to clear a roster spot for Cody Asche, who was recalled from the minors.

Sizemore had made 23 starts, including 21 in right field, which was the second-most on the team behind Jeff Francoeur (25 starts in RF). 

The veteran outfielder hit .245 with no home runs, five doubles, six RBI, four runs, six walks and 23 strikeouts in 39 games.


Report: Cubs promote prospect C.J. Edwards to Triple-A


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:22 pm ET) The Cubs promoted starting pitcher prospect C.J. Edwards from Double-A Tennessee to Triple-A Iowa, according to 670 The Score.

Edwards, who is considered a top-100 prospect by Baseball America (No. 38) and MLB.com (No. 47), went 2-2 with a 2.66 ERA in 13 relief appearances for Tennessee. He had 36 strikeouts and 17 walks in 23 2/3 innings.


Brewers designate reliever Brandon Kintzler for assignment


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:11 pm ET) Brewers reliever Brandon Kintzler was designated for assignment Friday. The right-hander is 0-1 with a 6.43 ERA in seven relief appearances.

D-Backs move Oscar Hernandez to 60-day disabled list


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:08 pm ET) The Diamondbacks transferred catcher Oscar Hernandez from the 15-day to 60-day disabled list Friday. The Rule 5 pick has been sidelined all season due to a broken hamate bone in his left hand.

Mental, emotional state has Rangers 1B Prince Fielder thriving


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:07 pm ET) The resurgence of Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder is as much mental and emotional as it is physical, suggests CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Those who know Fielder believe he is in a good place after a rough final season in Detroit and an injury-plagued 2014. He did not endear himself to the Tigers after the team was eliminated in 2013 when he suggested there were worse things in life.

Fielder was dealing with a marital issue that year and was concerned with his sons, but his marriage has remained intact and he is tearing it up at the dish. A recent six-game hitting streak included four three-hit games and five home runs. He boasts a sensational slash line of .361/.410/.577.


D-Backs add Saltalamacchia after Gosewisch lands on DL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:05 pm ET) The Diamondbacks purchased the contract of catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia from Triple-A Reno on Friday after placing starting catcher Tuffy Gosewisch (knee) on the disabled list. Saltalamacchia is expected to share playing time with Jordan Pacheco.

Saltalmacchia hit .188 (6 for 32) with two home runs, seven RBI, two walks and 13 strikeouts in nine games for Reno.


Brewers activate shortstop Jean Segura from 15-day DL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:01 pm ET) Brewers shortstop Jean Segura was activated off the 15-day disabled list Friday. Segura has been out since May 13 due to a broken finger. 

Luis Sardinas saw most of the playing time at shortstop in Segura's absence. Sergura is batting .243 with one home run, two triples, four RBI, six runs and two stolen bases in his last 10 games.

He returned to the starting lineup Friday against the Diamondbacks, batting sixth.


Diamondbacks place Tuffy Gosewisch on DL with ACL injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:56 pm ET) The Diamondbacks placed catcher Tuffy Gosewisch on the 15-day disabled list Friday due to an ACL injury in his left knee. Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia was recalled from Triple-A Reno to take his roster spot.

Gosewisch hurt his knee Wednesday against the Cardinals. The injury was originally diagnosed as a jammed knee, but he underwent an MRI on Thursday.

Gosewisch heads to the DL with a team-high 34 starts at catcher. Jordan Pacecho and Saltalamacchia will now share the catcher responsibilities in his absence.


Royals LF Alex Gordon unlikely to pick up 2016 option


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:52 pm ET) Royals veteran left fielder Alex Gordon will likely not pick up his player option for 2016, which will result in free agency, per CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, who indicated that the team cannot afford to pay what he is currently worth.

Gordon has been steady and productive at the plate and a premier defender. His market value might decrease if he continues to hit as he has recently, but that is highly unlikely given his track record. He is on a 5-for-29 slide without a multi-hit game since May 15.


Blue Jays P Todd Redmond accepts latest Triple-A assignment


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:40 pm ET) Veteran right-hander Todd Redmond has bounced around plenty between Toronto and Buffalo this season and is set to return to Triple-A. He has accepted the assignment from the Blue Jays after clearing waivers, per Sportsnet.

Redmond, who was designated on May 19, has not earned the right to stay in the big leagues this year. He has allowed 11 runs in 8 1/3 innings over three outings.


Cubs switch starts of Tsuyoshi Wada, Jason Hammel


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:31 pm ET) The Cubs have flip-flopped starters Tsuyoshi Wada and Jason Hammel in their rotation this weekend against the Royals, per ESPN. The former is now set to start Saturday and the latter Sunday.

The team wants to give more time to Hammel, who is dealing with a fingernail issue. It has certainly not affected him too negatively on the mound - he has six straight quality starts.


Shelved Red Sox DH David Ortiz plans to 'come back and rake'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:24 pm ET) Red Sox slugger David Ortiz has the same plan that a guy taking a break doing yard work might have.

"Come back and rake," he said.

Ortiz was referring to his forced time off. John Farrell has benched the designated hitter so he can figure out his swing, which has not been itself lately. His 1-for-20 and 3-for-31 slides that have lowered his batting average to a disturbing .216 motivated the move.

Whether it reaps its intended rewards is another matter.

"Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't," Ortiz told WEEI about the hiatus. "...I've just been thinking too much and overdoing things. Sometimes that works and sometimes that doesn't. I know this ballclub needs me, and now we have a long season ahead. I'm just going to try to pull the best out of this."

That means finding the stroke that has made him a potential Hall of Famer.

"A guy like myself, I always have to be on top of my game because every night I see the best coming out of everyone," he said. "So the minute I walk away from my game, this is exactly what happens. The pitcher be like, 'Just keep that monster down there sleeping. Don't wake him up. Bury him.' So in my case, I've got to figure out how to execute better."


Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis starting rehab Friday in Triple-A


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:05 pm ET) What was expected is now official - Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis will begin a rehab assignment Friday for Triple-A Buffalo, per Sportsnet. He is set to lead off and serve as the designated hitter.

Travis has been out with a shoulder injury since May 16. It is anticipated that he will return to the Jays when eligible, which would make his stint in the minors quite short. When he returns, he will be on a four-game hitting streak.


Royals OF Alex Rios set to return to lineup Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:56 pm ET) It has been seven weeks since outfielder Alex Rios stepped onto the field with the Royals. Now it's down to just one day.

Ned Yost has announced that Rios will return to the lineup Saturday against the host Cubs, MLB.com has reported.

Rios has been out with a fractured left hand. He will replace Paulo Orlando as the starter in left field. He slammed nine hits in 28 at-bats before going down, then went 3-for-17 with Triple-A Omaha in his rehab assignment.


Royals DH Kendrys Morales forced to sit Friday at Wrigley


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:49 pm ET) Kendrys Morales has been penciled in as the designated hitter for the Royals in every game this season. But when there is no DH, there is no Morales.

Such is the case Friday afternoon at Wrigley Field, where Morales is out of the lineup against the Cubs. It remains to be seen if he finds his way into the outfield during the three-game weekend series or if he's used strictly as a pinch-hitter.

His bat will be missed. Morales owns a fine .306/.364/.489 slash line and his 37 RBI is tied for third in the American League.


Tigers not strongly confident they can sign SP David Price


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:25 pm ET) The Tigers are not particularly confident that they will be able to sign ace left-hander David Price, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman is reporting. Price could be destined for free agency after this season.

Detroit is 9-1 when Price starts this year despite his occasional meltdowns. But its front office is concerned that he will want to test the market and top the contract earned by Max Scherzer, who left the Tigers after last season to join Washington. Scherzer earned $210 million after turning down the Detroit offer of $144 million.

Price, however, is considered more likely to remain where he is comfortable than a guy who is seeking maximum dollar.

He has seven quality starts and another in which he pitched shutout ball for 5 2/3 innings. But two terrible outings has resulted in a still-strong 2.97 ERA.


Nationals' Anthony Rendon could be 7-10 away from returning


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:23 pm ET) Nationals infielder Anthony Rendon is believed to be 7-10 days away from returning, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reported Friday. He began playing in extended spring games Wednesday.

Rendon has been on the disabled list all season recovering from knee and oblique injuries.


Scout: Mets SP prospect Steven Matz is 'really good'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:11 pm ET) Mets starting pitcher prospect Steven Matz continues to impress in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League. He is 6-2 with a 1.99 ERA and 1.05 WHIP through 10 outings (nine starts).

"He's really good," an AL scout told CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. "He has a slower curveball that works in the minors, so he may need to complement that with a slider. But he has deception with his fastball."


Exec: Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes won't skip free agency


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:11 pm ET) There is no possibility that Tigers slugger Yoenis Cespedes will eschew free agency to sign early with Detroit, an executive of one of his former teams told CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

"He's a businessman," the source said.

The Tigers, however, like Cespedes and plan to keep him in Detroit. He has been steady and productive this year to the tune of a .285/.320/.478 slash line and 27 RBI.


Rivals teams prefer Mets' Bartolo Colon over Dillon Gee


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:08 pm ET) The Mets are still keeping starting pitcher Dillon Gee on the trade market, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. However, his injury history limits his value.

Also, rival teams seem to prefer acquiring veteran Bartolo Colon.

"He takes the ball every fifth day and throws strikes," a rival executive said of Colon.


Yasiel Puig eyeing return on homestand, Dodgers not as optimistic


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:00 pm ET) Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig, who is on the disabled list with a hamstring injury, will soon be at the team's spring complex in Arizona to continue his rehab, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Puig hopes to come off the DL and begin playing in games again when the Dodgers come off their road trip next week. The team opens a seven-game homestand June 4 vs. St. Louis.

However, the team doesn't seem as optimistic about Puig's timetable and won't put a timeframe on his return.
