Mets OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis nursing pinched nerve in back
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6:30 pm ET) Mets outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis has been suffering from a pinched nerve in his upper back, which caused him to be unavailable for Thursday and Friday's games, according to ESPN.com.

However, Nieuwenhuis appears able to play through the injury, as the Mets optioned rookie outfielder Michael Conforto to Triple-A in the wake of the Mets' acquisition of Yoenis Cespedes.

Nieuwenhuis was listed as a reserve on the lineup card for Saturday's game against the Nationals.


Rays SP Drew Smily has rough rehab outing Friday
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6:14 pm ET) Rays starting pitcher Drew Smyly was roughed up during a Class A rehab start on Friday, per MLB.com.

Smyly allowed five runs on nine hits in 3 1/3 innings of work. He struck out four batters and allowed a home run.

"It wasn't good," said Rays manager Kevin Cash about Smyly's line. "I heard everything from a health factor was fine. I don't know about the game report. I know he gave up some hits. The velocity was good. He got his pitches in. So that was the priority. We're really not going to start evaluating the numbers right now. We need to keep him going. He got his pitches, he threw close to 70 pitches."

Smyly will continue to throw every five days. He will have a rest day on Saturday before throwing another bullpen session and another rehab start. The Rays, though, are not sure about how soon Smyly will return to the team.

"I think that all kind of goes in part with where we're at in the season with the off-days, we have to factor that in," Cash said. "I know he's itching to get back, but we have to make sure he's ready before we commit to having a set time."

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Rumbelow hurled 3 1/3 innings for the Yankees in late June and early July and allowed one run. Goody got into two games after his Thursday call-up and gave up a run in 1 1/3 innings.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5:58 pm ET) The White Sox have reunited with third baseman Dayan Viciedo , who played for Chicago from 2010 to 2014, according to ESPN Chicago.

Rays OF Steven Souza (hand) likely headed to DL after HBP
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:50 pm ET) Rays outfielder Steven Souza was hit by a pitch in the left hand in the fifth inning Saturday's game against the Red Sox. He was able to stay in the game, but was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the sixth.

Souza was diagnosed with a fractured left hand, and he is expected to land on the disabled list, according to the Tampa Bay Times

SP Luis Severino to debut for Yankees on Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:43 pm ET) Yankees prized rookie pitcher Luis Severino will make his Wednesday at home against the archrival Red Sox, per WFAN.

Severino, who has allowed more than two earned runs just once in his last 14 starts for Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre, sports a 9-2 record and 2.45 ERA on the year. He has 98 strikeouts in 99 1/3 innings.


Pirates demote RP Bobby LaFromboise to Triple-A
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5:39 pm ET) The Pirates sent relief pitcher Bobby LaFromboise back to Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday, the team announced.

LaFromboise was recalled on Thursday, but did not see any game action during his time with the team.


Rockies designate RP Aaron Laffey for assignment on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:38 pm ET) Rockies pitcher Aaron Laffey was designated for assignment on Saturday. The left-hander pitched three scoreless innings of relief in Friday's loss to the Cardinals.

Laffey has made three relief appearances for the Rockies in 2015, posting a 3.68 ERA. This is the second time this year that Laffey has been DFA'd by the Rockies. 


Travis Shaw has four hits in Red Sox win
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5:38 pm ET) Red Sox third baseman Travis Shaw reached base all five times he was up, in Saturday's win over Tampa Bay. 

Heading into Saturday, Shaw had three hits in his nine previous games this season. He more than doubled that in the game, going 4 for 4 with a walk. 

Shaw hit his first two career home runs in the game and scored five times. He's the first MLB player to hit his first and second career homers in the same game since Jose Abreu on April 8 of last season.
