Red Sox missing punch in middle of lineup Thursday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3:53 pm ET) The Red Sox will be without designated hitter David Ortiz (soreness), third baseman Will Middlebrooks (hamstring) and first baseman Mike Napoli (back) for Thursday's game against the Angels, as all three are out of the starting lineup. They remain day to day collectively moving forward. 

Alex Hassan sent back to Triple-A
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3:50 pm ET) The Red Sox optioned outfielder Alex Hassan back to Triple-A Pawtucket Thursday, to make room on the active roster for the return of Allen Craig from the disabled list. Hassan appeared in just one game for the Red Sox in his most recent stint, going hitless in one at-bat. 

Allen Craig brought back from DL, serving as DH Thursday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3:45 pm ET)  Red Sox first baseman Allen Craig was activated from the disabled list Thursday and is in the lineup for that evening's game against the Angels, the team announced.

Craig has been out since injuring his ankle in his first game with the Red Sox. He is batting fifth and serving as the designated hitter Thursday. 


Dallas Keuchel a tough-luck loser Thursday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3:39 pm ET) Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel threw the ball well Thursday, but came out on the wrong side of a pitcher's duel in a 3-0 loss to the Yankees.

Keuchel tossed an eight-inning complete game in the start, and had trouble in just one inning, as he allowed three runs in the third. He was charged with three earned runs on seven hits overall, while striking out five batters and throwing 65 of 96 pitches for strikes in the loss.

Keuchel is now winless in his last four starts, despite tossing three quality starts in that time. He heads into his next start, set for Tuesday against the A's, with a 10-9 record and 3.12 ERA on the season. 


Brandon McCarthy overpowers Astros in complete-game win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3:27 pm ET) Yankees pitcher Brandon McCarthy tossed another gem Thursday, as he dominated the Astros in a complete-game shutout win.

McCarthy tossed his first complete game of the season, as he mowed through the Astros on 107 pitches. He allowed just four hits -- two doubles -- in the game, while retiring eight batters on strikeouts and 11 on groundballs in the 3-0 win.

McCarthy has been lights out since joining the Yankees, posting a 5-2 record and 1.90 ERA in his eight starts. He will try to keep the good times rolling when he takes on the Tigers Tuesday.


Buster Posey able to play Thursday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3:21 pm ET) Giants catcher Buster Posey will play Thursday against the Cubs, as he told the San Jose Mercury News prior to the start of the doubleheader.

Posey was forced to sit out Wednesday's game, but improved enough to return to the starting lineup. It is not clear if Posey will be in the lineup for both games of the doubleheader, as the teams finish off Tuesday's suspended game. 


David Phelps to make return as reliever
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3:13 pm ET) Yankees pitcher David Phelps will make his return to the club as a member of the bullpen, MLB.com reports Thursday.

Phelps, who is working his way back from a right elbow injury, is still in the process of beginning to throw. At this point, there is no timetable for his return to the team, but there is not enough time left in the season for him to rehab and return as a starter.

"I think at this stage, we're going day by day," Phelps said. "We'll hopefully amp it up when we get through this week. I took two weeks off, it's not like I'll be on the mound this weekend."


Yan Gomes exits with illness
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3:09 pm ET) Indians catcher Yan Gomes was forced out of Thursday's game against the Twins, due to an illness. He was replaced behind the plate by Roberto Perez.

Gomes is considered day to day at this point, with the Indians beginning a series against the Astros Friday. 


Matt Moore to begin throwing soon, aiming for May return
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3:00 pm ET) Rays pitcher Matt Moore is recovering as expected from Tommy John surgery, and he told MLB.com Thursday he could begin a throwing program soon.

"I have sock throws starting this coming Monday," Moore said. "I'll do those six times, two weeks worth, Monday, Wednesday, Friday times two. After that, I'll be at 20 weeks. That will be five months [since his surgery] and I'll start my throwing program."

Moore is aiming for a May 2015 return to the majors, after missing all but two starts this season while recovering. Though he did add he might hit the brakes in his recovery a bit, if he feels rushed at the beginning of next season.

"If it was June, honestly, I think it would be best for all parties," he added. "Our squad in general and myself, just to make sure that we're not trying to get to May [and rushing things]."


Swollen thumb limited Carlos Corporan
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:56 pm ET) Astros catcher Carlos Corporan has been limited a bruised right thumb over the last two months, MLB.com reports Thursday.

"It's been hurting," he said before Thursday's game. "Just the fact I don't play every day, it's something you have to keep treating and then take care of. I'm just trying to forget about it and perform the best I can."  

Coporan injured the thumb in mid-June and has been trying to deal with the injury by adding extra padding while catching. The fact that he does not play everyday has helped him avoid the DL, but this might be an injury he has to deal with for the rest of the season.

"I'm trying to do my best and take some medicine and try to get the best treatment I have for my thumb," he said. "The [training staff] has been doing a pretty good job. They've kept me in the lineup, avoiding the DL."
