Rockies option INF/OF Rafael Ynoa to Triple-A on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8:02 pm ET) The Rockies have optioned infielder/outfielder Rafael Ynoa to Triple-A Alburquerque. Ynoa has struggled this year as a part-time player. In 52 games, he owns a .225 batting average with just four extra-base hits (all doubles) in 89 at-bats.

Ynoa's demotion clears a roster spot for Drew Stubbs, who was recalled from Triple-A on Thursday.


Struggling Rockies' DJ LeMahieu gets a rest on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6:55 pm ET) Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu is getting a rest on Thursday, as he is being held out of the starting lineup against the Diamondbacks. LeMahieu had started 34 of the last 35 games for the Rockies, and he's been struggling lately.

Over his last 10 games, LeMahieu is batting a meager .132 (5 for 38). So he'll get a day off on Thursday, with Daniel Descalso getting the start at second base. 


Rockies recall OF Drew Stubbs from Triple-A on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6:50 pm ET) The Rockies have recalled outfielder Drew Stubbs from Triple-A on Thursday, and he will be available off the bench for the game against the Diamondbacks.

After struggling for the first 24 games of the season with a .118 batting average and 30 strikeouts, Stubbs was sent down to Alburquerque on May 20. In 38 games at Triple-A, Stubbs was hitting .263 with four doubles, three triples and two home runs. 

"I think being sent down was good for me," Stubbs said, per The Denver Post. "I got back to being myself again. Stuff had compounded on me to where I wasn't playing effective baseball. I felt like that wiped the slate clean. I'm ready to go again."

To clear room on the roster, infielder/outfielder Rafael Ynoa was optioned to Triple-A.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6:50 pm ET) Twins manager Paul Molitor confirmed on Thursday that starting pitcher Ervin Santana will return to the mound on Sunday, and Phil Hughes will start on Monday, per MLB.com.

Santana, who is returning from an 80-game suspension for the use of performance enhancing drugs, made his final rehab start in Triple-A on Tuesday.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6:49 pm ET) Rangers pitcher Derek Holland is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Friday, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Holland has not pitched since April because of a shoulder issue. He recently had an MRI on his shoulder, which came back clean. He isn't expected back until August.


Diamondbacks' Archie Bradley to stop throwing, rest hurt shoulder
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6:38 pm ET) Diamondbacks starting pitcher Archie Bradley, who is recovering from a shoulder injury, will abstain from throwing for the immediate future to rest that shoulder, per FoxsportsArizona.com.

Bradley received good news on Thursday as an MRI revealed no significant damage in his shoulder. He has been on the 15-day disabled list since early June.


Elbow injury limits Twins OF Shane Robinson
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6:23 pm ET) Twins outfielder Shane Robinson may be limited to just defense and pinch running as he deals with a left elbow contusion, reports the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Robinson was hit in the elbow by a pitch during Wednesday's game, which caused him to leave the contest. He is considered day to day. He was not in the lineup for Thursday's game at Kansas City.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:58 pm ET) Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer went 2 for 3 with a double and two runs scored in the 8-4 win over the Tigers on Thursday. 

Mercer is on fire at the plate all of a sudden. He is in the midst of an eight-hame hitting streak, during which he is batting .444 (16 for 36) with five doubles.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:56 pm ET) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller was held out of the starting lineup Thursday against the Athletics for the first time in 18 games and just the fourth time since May 24. Chris Taylor, who was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday, replaced Miller in the starting lineup at shortstop.

Since June 1, Miller is batting .256 with one triple, two home runs, three doubles, eight RBI, eight runs, 10 walks, 19 strikeouts and three stolen bases in his last 27 games.
