News: Davidson underwent surgery Friday to repair a fracture in his right foot.

The 25-year-old returned to the major leagues Thursday following a nearly three-year absence, but in a stroke of horrible luck, he broke his foot in his first game with the White Sox. A screw was inserted into Davidson's foot to stabilize the fracture. His timetable is unclear, but Davidson will undergo X-rays in two weeks and the team will map out a recovery plan at that time.

Angels' Yunel Escobar: Not in Friday's lineup
Yunel Escobar, 3B, LAA
2:40 PM
News: Escobar (knee) is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Red Sox.

The team was hoping to have Escobar back at third base and atop the order following Thursday's off day, but Escobar will miss his seventh consecutive start as a result of the knee injury. He has been able to avoid the 15-day DL to this point, but if Escobar does not show improvement before the end of the weekend, the Angels could opt for a backdated stint.

Todd Frazier
White Sox's Todd Frazier: Ties MLB lead with 23rd home run Thursday
Todd Frazier, 3B, CHW
6/30/2016
News: Frazier (1-for-4) tied the MLB lead with his 23rd home run in Thursday's game against the Twins.

Frazier, who entered the day one homer behind major league leader Mark Trumbo of Baltimore, pulled a changeup from Tommy Milone into the bullpen to lead off the second inning. Entering the season, many were split on how Frazier's move to Chicago would work out. He seems to have settled that debate quickly, as the third baseman is on pace to blow past his career highs in homeruns (35) and RBI (89) -- both set a season ago in Cincinnati.

News: Cuthbert is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cardinals, Joel Goldberg of Fox Sports Kansas City reports.

Cuthbert will get a day off Thursday after starting the last 25 games for the Royals. In his place, Christian Colon will slide over and man the hot corner against Mike Leake and the Cardinals for the series finale of the rivalry series. Cuthbert will most likely return to the lineup for Friday's series opener in Philadelphia.

D.J. Peterson
Mariners' D.J. Peterson: Promoted to Triple-A Tacoma
D.J. Peterson, 3B, SEA
6/30/2016
News: Peterson has been promoted to Triple-A Tacoma, seattlepi.com reports.

The 12th overall pick in the 2013 entry draft, Peterson has bounced back strong from a disappointing 2015 campaign, posting a .271/.340/.466 slash line in 73 games for Double-A Jackson. He played four games with Triple-A Tacoma last season but has otherwise spent most of his minor league career at the High-A or Double-A levels. Though the Mariners likely want to keep him in Triple-A ball for an extended period, Peterson might still emerge as a candidate for a September call-up.

Luis Valbuena, 3B, HOU
6/30/2016
News: Valbuena went 1-for-2 with two walks, a home run and two runs scored during Wednesday's 10-4 win over the Angels.

The Astros were lacking offensive production from the hot-corner earlier this season, but Valbuena is hitting .326/.445/.539 with four homers, 12 RBI and 19 walks over the last 30 days. His nine home runs are well behind the 25 he hit last season, but he's getting on base (.359) at a much higher clip and his .809 OPS is currently the best of his career.

News: Beltre went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Wednesday at the Yankees.

Beltre's 12th blast of the season gave the Rangers a 7-2 lead in the eighth inning, although they'd end up blowing the lead in the ninth inning to lose the contest. He's now hit safely in eight straight games, and he's slashing .284/.333/.464.

Donaldson's 18th homer of the season was a solo shot with two outs in the third inning off rookie Tyler Anderson. According to Statcast, his blast was projected to travel 391 feet and left his bat at 99 mph. The reigning MVP has been teeing of this month, going 34-for-91 (.374) with five home runs, 23 RBI and 25 runs over 91 at-bats.

6/29/2016
News: Uribe is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Braves.

He had an improbable run of four homers in six games last week, but has just two hits in his last 15 at-bats. The Indians will opt to go with Jose Ramirez at the hot corner Wednesday.

Evan Longoria
Rays' Evan Longoria: Enjoying best month of season in June
Evan Longoria, 3B, TB
6/29/2016
News: Longoria has put together his best month of the season to date in June, and is 6-for-13 with a double and two runs over his last three games.

The veteran has been progressively better each month this season, and has been at his best in June. After a 2-for-4 performance against the Red Sox on Wednesday that represented his second straight multi-hit effort, Longoria's June line is up to .309/.375/.649 with five doubles, nine homers, 17 RBI, 10 walks and 16 runs. The Rays offense continues to be starved for offense on most days, but the 30-year-old has managed to raise his average 14 points this month despite the team's struggles.
