Pirates bench Josh Harrison, Jung-Ho Kang on Thursday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:07 pm ET) The logjam on the left side of the Pirates infield has both Josh Harrison and Jung Ho Kang out of the lineup Thursday at Miami. Aramis Ramirez will play third with Jordy Mercer at short.

Harrison has slumped since his return from injury with two hits in 13 at-bats. Kang, however, has hit safely in six of his last seven starts in maintaining a fine slash line of .289/.364/.457.


Nationals CF Denard Span out of Thursday lineup
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:56 pm ET) Nationals leadoff hitter and center fielder Denard Span is set to sit Thursday against visiting San Diego.

Span played in just two games after returning from a seven-week absence due to a back injury. Matt Williams might be avoiding overworking him so soon after his comeback.


Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig leaves game with likely hamstring injury
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:45 pm ET) An apparent hamstring injury sustained beating out an infield single in the ninth inning forced the removal of Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig from the game Thursday afternoon in Cincinnati.

Puig, who dealt with a hamstring injury earlier in the year, had two singles to extend his hitting streak to 10 before going down.

The team has yet to confirm any details in the injury, including its seriousness and possible amount of time Puig could be sidelined.

His loss for an extended period could prove devastating, especially considering starting second baseman Howie Kendrick remains out and slugger Adrian Gonzalez also left the game Thursday with an injury.


More knee issues land Rays OF Desmond Jennings on DL again
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:33 pm ET) The Rays have placed outfielder Desmond Jennings on the disabled list with a bruised left knee and recalled Joey Butler from Triple-A Durham, per the Tampa Tribune.

Jennings, who has had just two at-bats since Saturday, has been sidelined nearly all year with a knee injury. His return two weeks ago marked his first action since late April.

He had raised his average to .268 before going down. That was its highest point since April 10.


Ailments could keep Cubs OF Dexter Fowler out through Friday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:27 pm ET) A series of foul tips off various parts of his body has Cubs outfielder Dexter Fowler sidelined Thursday against San Francisco and possibly beyond. He has been hit on the right hand, left elbow and right shin, per mlb.com.

Fowler might remain out Friday against the Dodgers.

"I'm not 100 percent sure yet [if he'll play Friday]," Joe Maddon said. "He's still pretty sore. There's a shot at it, yes."

Fowler was on an 0-for-9 slide before going down.


Michael Lorenzen could replace David Holmberg in Reds rotation
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:17 pm ET) The struggles of Reds starter David Holmberg are likely to benefit Michael Lorenzen, who could assume his place in the rotation as early as Monday against the Cubs, according to MLB.com.

Lorenzen has been tearing it up at Triple-A Louisville. He is 2-1 with a 1.13 ERA in 24 innings over his last three starts. His last effort was a one-hitter over eight innings.

Holmberg has been going in the opposite direction with a 15.19 ERA over his past three outings. He was pounded for six earned runs in 3 2/3 innings by the Dodgers in his last performance.

The only problem for Lorenzen is an innings limit that Bryan Price placed at 150-155 innings. He has thrown 133 2/3 combined with Cincinnati and Louisville this season.


Orioles OF Nolan Reimold set to join Triple-A Norfolk
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:56 pm ET) Veteran Orioles outfielder Nolan Reimold has accepted an assignment he could have refused, the Baltimore Sun has reported. He is headed to Triple-A Norfolk.

The 31-year-old Reimold, who cleared waivers, heads down with a slash line of .227/.306/.340.


OF Aaron Judge, RP Jacob Lindgren won't help Yankees in 2015
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:50 pm ET) Two young players remain unlikely candidates to take the field for the Yankees by the end of the season.

One is top outfield prospect Aaron Judge, whom general manager Brian Cashman has ruled out for a possible promotion, per LoHud.com. The other is southpaw reliever Jacob Lindgren, who has yet to begin throwing bullpen sessions in his rehab from a left elbow injury that required surgery.

Judge is on a 0-for-14 slide at Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre. He owns a decent .262/.337/.469 slash line on the year.


Marlins demote RP Scott McGough; activate RP Andre Rienzo
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:38 pm ET) One week after promoting Scott McGough to Triple-A New Orleans, the Marlins have sent him back down to the same team, per the Miami Herald.

The move was necissatated by the reinstatement of fellow right-handed reliever Andre Rienzo from the disabled list.

McGough pitched scoreless ball in two of his three appearances, but allowed three runs on five hits in two-thirds of an inning in the other.

Rienzo had been down for just over three weeks with a left knee laceration.


Giants SS Brandon Crawford, OF Gregor Blanco out Thursday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:32 pm ET) The banged-up Giants still have two starting position players missing from their lineup for the Thursday game against the visiting Cubs.

Shortstop Brandon Crawford (side) and outfielder Gregor Blanco (left hip strain) remain sidelined.

The absences are the second straight both both players.
