by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(9:45 pm ET) Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Monday catcher Kyle Schwarber could see more playing time in left field after playing one inning in left during Sunday's contest, reports MLB.com.

"You saw him play one minute of outfield [Sunday]," Maddon said. "You might see him out there more often as we move along."

Scuffling White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche benched for two games
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:18 pm ET) Struggling White Sox first baseman Adam LaRoche is set to sit for the first two games of the series in Boston.

LaRoche is batting just .212 with nine homers and 34 RBI with a terrible .347 slugging percentage. He has gone homerless over the last 25 games. He has just six hits in his last 49 at-bats.

"Probably give him two just to work out some things," Robin Ventura told MLB.com. "I know you can get frustrated."


Orioles INF/OF Steve Pearce destined for lengthy DL stay
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:11 pm ET) Orioles versatile player Steve Pearce is eligible for activation off the disabled list on Aug. 3, but he will likely need more time to recover from a left oblique strain sustained last Wednesday.

He cannot do any strengthening exercises or throw or hit without risk of re-injury, so he has been limited to rest and treatment, per MLB.com.

"On paper, as far as experience and track record of that injury, no," Buck Showalter said when asked about the possibility of Pearce returning when eligible. "But who knows? I don't know how quick we caught it."

Manager: Rockies closer John Axford throwing as he has all year
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8:46 pm ET) Walt Weiss does not sound like a manager ready to pull the plug on the closer status of Rockies right-hander John Axford.

Axford has yielded five earned runs on seven hits and six walks in his last six appearances. He had been lights-out before his slump and is still 16-for-19 in save opportunities.

"Some of those games where he did give up some runs, he didn't get a lot of breaks," Weiss told MLB.com. "Some groundballs had eyes. When he did walk a guy, it cost him. He's throwing the ball like he has all year."

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
