by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3:01 pm ET) Athletics pitcher Sean Doolittle threw a 31-pitch bullpen session on Saturday, per the San Francisco Chronicle.

Doolittle is on the 60-day disabled list, recovering from a shoulder injury. He'll be able to face live hitters in a simulated game this week, manager Bob Melvin told the media on Sunday.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:58 pm ET) Astros new starting third baseman Jed Lowrie is making his second straight start Sunday, but will likely not play Monday in Texas. A.J. Hinch has stated that he's not yet ready to play Lowrie three straight days, per MLB.com.

Alex Wilson to close for Tigers, Blaine Hardy to go against lefties


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2:52 pm ET) The Tigers will use Alex Wilson as closer for the forseeable future, manager Brad Ausmus said, per MLive.com, with Blaine Hardy also getting situational opportunities to close.

"I'll probably use Wilson at the back end, maybe Hardy at the back end if there are lefties," Ausmus said. The team dealt closer Joakim Soria to Pittsburgh on Thursday. 

Wilson is 1-3 with a 1.79 ERA. He picked up his first career save on Thursday night. Hardy is 3-2 with a 2.56 ERA


Athletics could shut down SP Jesse Hahn for 2015


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:46 pm ET) Athletics starter Jesse Hahn, who has been sidelined for a month with a forearm strain has yet to resume throwing and could be shut down for the year, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

The team is avoiding rushing him back considering he has already undergone Tommy John surgery.

If Hahn is indeed done, he will end the season 6-6 with a 3.35 ERA.


Cubs designate Yoervis Medina for assignment


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2:43 pm ET) The Cubs designated pitcher Yoervis Medina for assignment on Sunday, per the Tacoma News Tribune.

Medina had a 7.00 ERA in five relief appearances for the Cubs. He'd been optioned to Triple-A earlier in the week, but the DFA move takes him off of the Cubs' 40-man roster. 


Indians 2B Jason Kipnis (shoulder) might be headed to DL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:32 pm ET) Terry Francona has declared that Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis could land on the disabled list with right shoulder soreness that forced him to have an MRI on Sunday, per MLB.com.

Francona added that he wanted to talk the situation over with the medical staff and general manager Chris Antonetti before a decision is made.

Kipnis was on one of his many hot streaks this season until arriving for the team's current series in Oakland. He is 1-for-12 against the Athletics, but still boasts a slash line of .326/.401/.477 on the year.


Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg to launch rehab Monday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:23 pm ET) Padres second baseman Cory Spangenberg will begin a rehab assignment Monday for Double-A San Antonio, per U-T San Diego. He has been on the disabled list for five weeks with a bone bruise in his left knee.

Spangenberg will return with a slash line of .254/.304/.356 and 44 strikeouts in just 177 at-bats.


Pirates SP A.J. Burnett will decline surgery if recommended


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:18 pm ET) Surgery is not an option for Pirates starter A.J. Burnett even if doctors tell him he has torn elbow ligament. He would rather pitch through it than undergo a season-ending procedure.

He went on the disabled list Friday with what was described as right elbow inflammation, but an MRI scheduled for Monday could reveal it to be worse.

"I'm prepared for (being told) it just needs some rest and if it's ... the worst (outcome)," Burnett told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "It's a matter of doing enough treatment and building up some pain tolerance so I can stay on mound in the stretch run."

That might be difficult considering how poorly Burnett has performed since the All-Star break. He has surrendered 18 runs on 32 hits in 16 innings and has lost his last two decisions.


Next start for Orioles P Chris Tillman slated for Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:07 pm ET) An ankle issue has the next start for Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman pushed back to Friday against the host Angels, per MASNSports.com.

Tillman was scheduled to pitch Monday.

He hopes to perform as well Friday as he has in his last four outings, during which he has allowed just three earned runs in 29 2/3 innings to drop his ERA to 4.35, its lowest point since his second start of the year.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
