Pirates add 1B/OF Michael Morse to roster; OF Jaff Decker optioned
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:40 pm ET) The Pirates have added first baseman/outfielder Michael Morse to the active roster on Monday. Morse was acquired from the Dodgers in exchange for outfielder Jose Tabata just before Friday's trade deadline.

Morse was slashing a disappointing .213/.276/.313 with four home runs and 12 RBI in 53 games with the Marlins, before being dealt to Los Angeles in a three-team deal last week. 

To clear room on the 25-man roster, outfielder Jaff Decker was optioned to Triple-A Indianpolis, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune


Cubs call up Matt Szczur; DFA Clayton Richard
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5:40 pm ET) The Cubs promoted outfielder Matt Szczur from Triple-A on Monday, reports ESPNChicago.com. Szczur hit .211 with one home and eight RBI in 32 games earlier this season.

To make room for Szczur, the team designated pitcher Clayton Richard for assignment. Richard went 2-0 with a 4.29 ERA over three starts this season.


Counsell: Kyle Lohse scheduled to start Friday vs. Cardinals
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:39 pm ET) Brewers starting pitcher Kyle Lohse remains on track to start Friday against the Cardinals, manager Craig Counsell told reporters Monday. Counsell indicated Sunday that Lohse's spot in the rotation was in jeopardy following a third straight loss. 

The veteran right-hander has struggled all season, compiling a 5-13 record and 6.31 ERA through 22 starts. He is winless in his last five starts, going 0-4 with a 6.58 ERA in that span.


A's recall RP Arnold Leon from Triple-A; Dan Otero sent down
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:33 pm ET) The Athletics have recalled right-handed reliever Arnold Leon from Triple-A Nashville. Leon has made seven appearances for the A's across several trips between the big leagues and Triple-A. In those seven games, Leon owns a 3.72 ERA over 9 2/3 innings.

He is taking the roster spot of Dan Otero, who was optioned to Triple-A on Monday. Otero has pitched frequently over the last few weeks, throwing 8 1/3 innings over his last six appearances. So it appears Oakland is making a move to get a fresh arm in the bullpen.


Mariners 1B Logan Morrison remains sidelined Monday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5:28 pm ET) Mariners first baseman Logan Morrison was held out of Monday's lineup at Colorado, reports the Seattle Times. Morrison was replaced at first base by Jesus Montero, who will bat sixth.

Morrison is dealing with a thumb injury and has not started a game since last Wednesday. He is hitting .158 with one double and four RBI in his last 14 games (10 starts).


A's RF Josh Reddick (back) unable to start on Monday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:27 pm ET) Athletics right fielder Josh Reddick is indeed out of the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Orioles. Reddick was forced to exit Sunday's game in the fifth inning with lower back tightness. The injury is not considered serious at this point, but it will cost him at least on start.

Sam Fuld is getting the start in right field while Reddick recovers.


A's option OF Jake Smolinski to Triple-A on Monday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:24 pm ET) Athletics outfielder Jake Smolinski has been optioned to Triple-A Nashville. Smolinski, who was acquired as a waiver claim from the Rangers, was batting .320 (8 for 25) with two home runs and seven RBI over his first 11 games with Oakland.

His demotion clears a spot on the 25-man roster for Coco Crisp, who is returning from the disabled list on Monday.


Coco Crisp activated from DL, starting in LF on Monday for A's
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:21 pm ET) The Athletics activated outfielder Coco Crisp from the 15-day disabled list prior to Monday's game against the Orioles.

Crisp has been on the DL with a neck injury since around Memorial Day. He hasn't played a big-league game since May 19, and he has just two hits in 45 at-bats this season. However, he is in Monday's starting lineup, batting second and playing left field. 

In a corresponding move, Jake Smolinski was optioned to Triple-A to clear room on the 25-man roster.


Nationals OF Denard Span getting close to live batting practice
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:14 pm ET) Nationals outfielder Denard Span, who began baseball activities Saturday, could be close to taking live batting practice, manager Matt Williams said Monday.

“In the next couple of days we’ll get him out for a live BP session and then look for him to get some live BP later in the week," Williams said. "Then running the bases. That’s kind of of the final step. Depending on how he feels, we’ll progress to that. We’ll see."

Span, who is on the disabled list due to a back injury, will go on a rehab assignment before returning.

“Volume. It’s going to be volume, probably,” Williams said. “Limited in the cage is one thing, but getting out there and just reacting without having to think about it is key, too. But if he can go through multiple BP sessions and early work and regular defensive work that he does, then he should be fine to get out there and play somewhere.”


Nationals RP David Carpenter set to resume throwing program
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:11 pm ET) Nationals reliever David Carpenter, who has been on the disabled list since July 12 due to right shoulder inflammation, can resume his throwing program after getting a second opinion on his injured shoulder, according to CSNwashington.com.

“He’s back on a throwing program and getting ready to go again. All the results are good and he’s building back up. He’ll go out and throw today and start that process,” manager Matt Williams said.
