Diamondbacks 3B Aaron Hill absent again from Friday lineup
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:10 am ET) Diamondbacks third baseman Aaron Hill remains out of the lineup Friday against the host Cubs with a hamstring issue.

He tweaked the hamstring on Tuesday and has not played since.


Cubs LF Kyle Schwarber a no-go Friday against Arizona
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:59 am ET) Cubs rookie left fielder Kyle Schwarber remains absent from the lineup Friday against the Diamondbacks with right rib soreness.

Schwarber appeared to have emerged from a slump before going down. He had three hits in seven at-bats with a homer and four runs scored in two games against Cincinnati.


Mets 1B Lucas Duda to begin rehab assignment Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:49 am ET) Mets first baseman Lucas Duda is set to start a rehab stint with Double-A Binghamton on Saturday, according to MLB.com. Duda has been sidelined for two weeks with a thoracic herniation in his back.

It remains to be seen when he will be cleared to return to the Mets. He owns a strong .247/.346/.472 slash line with 21 homers and 56 RBI on the year.


Tigers promote RP Jeff Ferrell
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:38 am ET) Tigers reliever Jeff Ferrell has been recalled from Triple-A Toledo, MLive.com is reporting. He made two appearances for the team in early July before getting sent back down.

The 24-year-old Ferrell hasn't exactly been tearing it up in Toledo. He owns a 4.76 ERA in 11 appearances there after a strong stretch in Double-A. But he has performed better lately with a 3.12 ERA in his last eight games.


Tigers DH Victor Martinez could be benched or dropped in order
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:31 am ET) Struggling Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez could soon either lose playing time or fall a spot or two in the batting order.

He recently fell from the cleanup spot to fifth, but that has not kick-started him at the plate. He has pretty much been in a season-long slump. Martinez is batting .130 (6-for-46) with no extra-base hits and no RBI over the last 12 games.

"Trust me, all has been considered," Ausmus told MLive.com. "[Benching Martinez or lowering him in the order] could be a possibility right now. He hit the ball hard three times (Thursday) night. We'll see how he feels (Friday)."

Martinez lost time this year to a knee issue that is still making it tough for him to unleash power against right-handed pitching.

"I think he's getting a little frustrated," Ausmus added. "A combination of, he hasn't hit very well, but ... he's run into some bad luck. I think from the time of the knee injury, I don't know if he was ever the same, but at times you see flashes. He's just been scuffling lately. That's part of baseball. Sometimes you scuffle."


Cardinals demote RP Nick Greenwood to Triple-A
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:17 am ET) Just one day after promoting reliever Nick Greenwood from Triple-A Memphis, the Cardinals have sent him back down to the same team, per milb.com.

Greenwood did not get a chance to pitch in his latest stint with the team. He did make one appearance in July and allowed two runs without recording an out.


Indians targeting return next week for SP Carlos Carrasco
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:11 am ET) Indians starter Carlos Carrasco is slated to throw a bullpen session Friday in Detroit. He has been on the disabled list with an ailing shoulder, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

If all goes well, he could be activated to start at some point next week against the White Sox.

Carrasco was arguably the team's hottest pitcher before going down. He had five consecutive quality starts during which he allowed only six runs in 39 2/3 innings. He has 173 strikeouts in 158 innings on the year.


Dodgers' Corey Seager goes 2 for 4, drives in two in MLB debut
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(2:00 am ET) Dodgers rookie Corey Seager had an impressive big-league debut on Thursday. The young infielder went 2 for 4 four with a double, two RBI and two runs scored in the 10-7 loss to the Padres.

Since 1914, Seager is just one of two Dodgers rookies to have at least two hits, two RBI and a double in his Major League debut. Russell Martin was the other.

Seager struck out in his first big-league at-bat, but he shook that off for what was a very fine debut. 


Padres RP Joaquin Benoit answers call to get save on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:51 am ET) Padres reliever Joaquin Benoit worked a perfect ninth inning to seal the 10-7 win over the Dodgers on Thursday. Benoit picked up his second save of the season, needing just 13 pitches to retire the side in order.


Padres' Jedd Gyorko belts go-ahead home run in win Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:49 am ET) Padres infielder Jedd Gyorko provided the biggest hit of the night in the 10-7 win over the Dodgers on Thursday. Gyorko, who went 2 for 4 on the night, blasted a two-run home run in the eighth inning to turn a 7-6 deficit into an 8-7 lead. 

The home run was Gyorko's 11th of the season, and he is now batting .316 with three homers and nine RBI over his last 10 games.
