Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo (elbow) out Tuesday
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6:09 pm ET) Diamondbacks catcher Welington Castillo, who left Monday's game after being hit by a pitch in the elbow, is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mariners.

Oscar Hernandez will fill in for Castillo on Tuesday, and he will hit out of the eighth spot in the lineup.


Rays 1B James Loney sits vs. left-hander on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6:06 pm ET) Rays first baseman James Loney is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's matchup with the Tigers. Loney is batting just .194 (7 for 36) against left-handers this season. So with southpaw David Price on the hill for the Tigers, Loney will start Tuesday's game on the bench.

Logan Forsythe will fill in at first base and hit cleanup on Tuesday, as Rays manager Kevin Cash has rid his lineup entirely of left-handed swingers. 


Rays' Kevin Kiermaier (eye) good to go for Tuesday's game
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:58 pm ET) Rays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier, who left Monday's game with an eye abrasion, is listed in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tigers. 

Kiermaier had been bothered by the issue prior to Monday's contest, but he appears good to go for the second game of the series with Detroit. He'll be in center field and bat ninth on Tuesday. 


Yankees CF Jacoby Ellsbury (shoulder) returns to lineup Tuesday
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5:47 pm ET) After missing a game because of a shoulder injury, Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury is back in the lineup for his team's game against the Rangers on Tuesday.

Ellsbury missed Monday's game after he received treatment on his injured shoulder. He will start in center field and hit out of the leadoff spot.


A's C Stephen Vogt not in the lineup on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:46 pm ET) Athletics catcher Stephen Vogt is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's contest against the Dodgers. Vogt had started five of the last six games, going just 3 for 22 over that span.

The Dodgers are also throwing a left-hander on the mound Tuesday, and Vogt is hitting .231 against southpaws this season. So Josh Phegley will get the start behind the plate as manager Bob Melvin looks to get another right-handed bat in the lineup.


Yankees recall Diego Moreno; option Nick Goody to Triple-A
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5:43 pm ET) The Yankees recalled pitcher Diego Moreno and recalled pitcher Nick Goody to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday, the team announced.

Goody was promoted to New York on Saturday and had not seen any game action. Moreno will be in his second stint with the team this season.


Dodgers 3B Justin Turner not starting on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:37 pm ET) Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the A's. Turner was lifted from Sunday's game against the Mets for a pinch runner in the ninth inning. Even with a travel day on Monday, Turner will start Tuesday's game on the bench.

Alberto Callaspo will get the start at the hot corner and bat seventh on Tuesday.


Rockies recall trio of players from Triple-A on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:28 pm ET) Following the recent trade of Troy Tulowitzki to Toronto, the Rockies have shuffled their roster a bit on Tuesday. They have recalled infielder Christian Adames , right-hander Justin Miller and left-hander Aaron Laffey from Triple-A.

Adames has not appeared in the big leagues yet this season, but he owns a .296/.342/.416 slash line with 16 doubles and seven home runs in 86 games with Alburquerque. 

Miller made eight relief appearances for the Rockies earlier this season, posting a 1.29 ERA over seven innings of work. 

Laffey, an eight-year veteran, pitched 2 1/3 innings in a relief outing earlier this year. He is 2-3 with a 4.78 ERA in 58 1/3 innings with the Isotopes. 


Reds adding David Holmberg to rotation
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:21 pm ET) Reds starting pitcher David Holmberg will be recalled from Triple-A Louisville to start Thursday against the Pirates and will take the rotation spot of Johnny Cueto, who was traded to the Royals earlier this week, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

The left-hander was scheduled to make his 2015 debut July 9, but when the Reds were rained out July 8, they pushed back Michael Lorenzen a day and left Holmberg in the minors.

Holmberg is 7-6 with a 4.40 ERA in 19 outings (17 starts) at Triple-A this season.


Rockies option 1B Wilin Rosario to Triple-A on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:20 pm ET) Rockies first baseman Wilin Rosario was optioned to Triple-A Alburquerque on Tuesday, MLB.com reports. This is the second time this season Rosario has been demoted to the minors, as he was sent down on at the end of April.

Rosario has posted decent numbers for the Rockies in 2015. He owns a .273 batting average, though he has just five home runs this season.
