Gonzalez was 3-5 with a 4.15 ERA at Triple-A Round Rock. Field was hitting .195 in 14 games for the Rangers.

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.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3:25 pm ET) The Royals announced that outfielder Alex Rios was activated from the disabled list on Saturday. 

Rios had been out with a fractured hand since mid-April. 

To make room for Rios, the Royals optioned outfielder Paulo Orlando to Triple-A Omaha. Orlando was hitting .241 with one home run seven RBI. He had a league-leading five triples, however.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:23 pm ET) John Farrell was good on his word - he has put Red Sox aging slugger David Ortiz back in the lineup for the Saturday night game against Texas.

Ortiz was benched for the last two games to work on his swing. He is hoping to rebound from 1-for-20 and 3-for-31 slides.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

HBP knocks Nationals slugger Bryce Harper out of Saturday start
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:12 pm ET) A sore back has cost sizzling Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper a start Saturday night in Cincinnati, per MASNSports.com.

The issue was the result of a hit-by-pitch off a fastball thrown Friday by Tony Cingrani.

Harper owns a five-game hitting streak, during which he has two home runs to give him 18 on the season. He boasts a sensational slash line of .328/.468/.733.


Royals 1B Eric Hosmer, 3B Mike Moustakas set to sit Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:01 pm ET) Royals sluggers Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas are both catching breaks Saturday against the host Cubs.

The former has started every game at first base this season while the latter has missed just three at third base.

Both are in mini-slumps. Hosmer has not managed a multi-hit game since May 14 and is 9-for-44 during that stretch with no home runs. Moustakas is batting .200 in his last seven games.


Nationals bring up Taylor Hill to pitch out of bullpen
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:51 pm ET) Nationals pitching prospect Taylor Hill has been promoted from Triple-A Syracuse to take the place of shelved starter Stephen Strasburg.

Hill has started nine games for the Chiefs this season, but will work out of the bullpen for Washington. He made three appearances for the Nationals last season, including one start, and posted a 9.00 ERA.

Taylor Jordan, who relieved Strasburg on Friday and pitched 4 2/3 innings, seems to be the likely replacement in the rotation.


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.


Ankle of Orioles CF Adam Jones not so 'swell'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:52 pm ET) An ankle issue caused by a slide at home plate Thursday motivated Buck Showalter to sit Orioles star center fielder Adam Jones on Saturday, per Comcast Sportsnet, which is reporting that the ankle has swelled up.

Showalter could not say with certainty that his absence will be just for one game.

Jones had started every game this season. He has just one multi-hit game since May 20, but still boasts a fine stat line of .304/.343/.457.
