Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter takes a seat with Sale on the mound
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(3:58 pm ET) Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter is getting the day off and is being held out of the starting lineup Tuesday against the White Sox. Carpenter had started five straight games, collecting just three hits in 21 at-bats over that span.

And, with a .222 batting average against left-handers this season, Carpenter will be shielded from one of the finest southpaws in the game, Chris Sale, who is starting on Tuesday.

Mark Reynolds is handling the hot corner while Xavier Scruggs handles first base on Tuesday.


Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong not starting on Tuesday vs. White Sox
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(3:56 pm ET) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong is getting just his second day off in the last 19 games, as he is being held out of the lineup on Tuesday. Wong has been hitting at a decent clip recently, batting .275 with two home runs over his last 10 games.

And, despite a strong .284 average against southpaws this season, the lefty-swinging Wong will take a seat against a tough left-hander in Chris Sale.

Pete Kozma is getting the start at second base while batting eighth against the White Sox on Tuesday.


White Sox back in NL park, Adam LaRoche back on bench
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:54 pm ET) White Sox DH Adam LaRoche was not in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Cardinals, as Chicago opened up a two-game series in an NL park. 

He also started the game on the bench for two of three games at Milwaukee in May and a two-game series at Pittsburgh in mid-June.

LaRoche is batting just .189 (10 for 53) with one home run, four doubles, seven RBI, three runs, five walks and 22 strikeouts in his last 15 games.


Pirates' Harrison sits Tuesday as HR drought reaches 37 games
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:46 pm ET) Pirates infielder Josh Harrison was held out of the starting lineup Tuesday against the Tigers for the first time since June 10. It was just the ninth time in 76 games this season he did not start.

Harrison is batting .346 (28 for 81) with four doubles, four RBI, six runs, three walks, 12 strikeouts and three stolen bases in his last 19 games.

He still hasn't homered in 37 games, which is the third-longest drought of his career, according to Baseball-Reference.com. His longest home-run drought was 46 games.


Blue Jays' Martin mired in 6-for-37 slump, gets day off Tuesday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:39 pm ET) Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin received a day off Tuesday against the Red Sox for the first time in seven games and just the second time in 10 games. 

Martin is hitless in his last three games (0 for 7) and is batting .059 (1 for 17) in his last six games. He is batting average has declined from .285 to .265 in his last 12 games, as he is just 6-for-37 in that stretch.


Cubs C Miguel Montero gets the day off on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(3:33 pm ET) Cubs catcher Miguel Montero is out of the starting lineup for Tuesday's matchup with the Mets. Montero had started five of the last six games. The one game in that stretch he didn't start, he wound up playing five innings, so he was certainly due for a rest.

The Cubs are also going up against a left-handed pitcher in Jonathon Niese, and Montero is batting just .222 against southpaws this season.

David Ross will handle the catching duties and bat seventh on Tuesday.


Cashman: Removing Warren from rotation had to do with workload
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:29 pm ET) Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Tuesday that removing Adam Warren from the rotation was based more on limiting his workload than performance, per ESPN.

Up until 2015, Warren had never logged more than 78 2/3 innings at the MLB level. He is already at 82 2/3 innings this season.

"We have to manage his innings," Cashman said. "He's pitched great but we're giving him a timeout. It doesn't mean he's out of the rotation for good. We're giving him a breather and if somebody gets hurt, he automatically goes back in."


Rangers option Joey Gallo to Triple-A on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(3:27 pm ET) The Rangers announced they have optioned rookie Joey Gallo to Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday. Gallo's demotion opens a roster spot for Josh Hamilton, was activated from the disabled list.

Gallo showed flashes of promise in his first taste of the big leagues. The 21-year-old had five home runs and 13 RBI in 25 games. But he also posted a meager .218 batting average and struck out nearly 44 percent of his at-bats. He will get further seasoning at Triple-A, and could very well be back with the big club before the end of the season.


Cashman: CC Sabathia to remain in rotation for foreseeable future
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:25 pm ET) Yankees general manager Brian Cashman reiterated Tuesday the team has no intentions of removing veteran starting pitcher CC Sabathia from the rotation.

"That's not something that we're considering at this moment," Cashman told ESPNNewYork.com. "We're going to continue to give him every opportunity to work through this for the foreseeable future."

Sabathia dropped another game Monday against the Angels to fall to 3-8 through 16 starts. He has a 5.59 ERA and 1.40 WHIP, and he has allowed 19 home runs in 95 innings.

"The home runs are a big issue," Cashman said. "That's something that's new for him, in the last couple of years. If they're solo shots, they're not as painful.

"He's still competing and finding himself. I think early on he had not the best of luck or run support."


Rangers OF Josh Hamilton activated from DL, starting Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(3:23 pm ET) The Rangers have activated outfielder Josh Hamilton from the disabled list, the team announced on Tuesday. Hamilton missed about a month due to a hamstring injury.

Hamilton appeared in four rehab games since his injury. He hit .333 with three RBI in 12 at-bats. 

The veteran outfielder is in Tuesday's starting lineup against the Orioles. Hamilton is in left field and batting fifth.

To clear a roster spot, Joey Gallo has been optioned to Triple-A Round Rock.
