Rays' Steve Pearce: Out of Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(12:02 pm ET) Pearce is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Dodgers, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports.

With Logan Morrison (forearm) returning to the lineup and the game taking place in a National League park (no DH), Pearce was left out of Wednesday's lineup. He will be back in the mix this weekend when the Rays host the Yankees, although he could also be on the move at the trade deadline, as his .389/.484/.741 slash line against lefties ought to intrigue some contending teams.


Rays' Logan Morrison: Returns to lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(11:58 am ET) Morrison is starting at first base and hitting sixth Wednesday against the Dodgers, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports.

He was expected to return Wednesday, and that has come to fruition. Morrison made a pinch-hit appearance Tuesday after missing six games with forearm tendinitis. A former top prospect in the Marlins' system back in 2010, Morrison appears to be on the verge of washing out of MLB, as he has performed below replacement level (-0.1 fWAR) for the second year in a row.


Red Sox's Hanley Ramirez: Day off Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9:52 am ET) Ramirez is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers, according to Ryan Hannable of WEEI.

Ramirez went 0-for-4 in Tuesday's game, so manager John Farrell decided it was time to give Ramirez his first day off since the All-Star break. Travis Shaw will slide across the diamond and serve as the Red Sox's first baseman in Ramirez's place.


Royals' Eric Hosmer: Hosmer continues to struggle
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7:40 am ET) On Tuesday night, Eric Hosmer went 0-4 and over the last thirty days is hitting .223/.277/.298

Recently, Hosmer has been in a complete funk since the All-Star game hitting .195 with just one extra-base hit. Nothing points to an injury, but I could see benching him in shallow leagues until shows some sign of turning around this cold streak.


Orioles' Chris Davis: Slump reaches new heights
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(1:56 am ET) Davis went 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts Tuesday, extending his hitting slump to 0-for-24 since July 16.

Davis has 11 strikeouts over the same stretch. He was slowed last week by the flu and that might have come into play when he returned in time for the weekend. While Davis has had a hard time with contact this season, he is walking 13.5 percent of the time, the highest of his career.


Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Homers, walks against Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/26/2016) Cabrera homered, walk, knocked in two runs and scored twice in a 2-for-4 game in Tuesday's win over the Red Sox.

Cabrera is on a roll, with four multi-hit games in his last seven, now including two homers, two doubles and six walks in that span. The home run was his 20th, giving him 12 seasons with at least 20 homers in his illustrious career. Still, his power output hasn't quite been up to his career standards -- his .512 slugging percentage would be his worst since his first full season back in 2004 with the Marlins at age 21.


Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Cranks out ninth homer of season Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/26/2016) Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a homer, two runs and two RBI Tuesday against the Yankees.

Gonzalez's ninth blast of the season gave the Astros a 1-0 lead in the first inning of the game they'd go on to lose. He's now hit safely in nine straight games, and he's slashing .257/.296/.428 on the year.


Rays' Logan Morrison: Should return to lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/26/2016) Morrison (forearm) is expected to return to the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Morrison has been suffering from a right forearm tendinitis injury that has caused him to miss the past seven games. He is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game, but said that he could be available to pinch hit. The forearm/wrist injury wasn't severe enough to put Morrison on the disabled list, and the 28-year-old should be good to go for Wednesday's contest.


Rays' Logan Morrison: Remains out of lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/26/2016) Morrison (wrist) is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Dodgers, Bill Chastain of MLB.com reports.

This will mark the seventh consecutive game that Morrison has missed while dealing with a right wrist injury. The team stated that Morrison was unlikely to land on the disabled list July 21, and there have been no other talks on the matter. For Tuesday's game, Steve Pearce will man first base.


Yankees' Rob Refsnyder: Out of lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/26/2016) Refsnyder is out of the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with Houston, Jared Diamond of The Wall Street Journal reports.

Refsnyder saw a spot start in place of Brett Gardner on Tuesday but will head back to the bench for Game-2 of the series. Refsnyder collected six hits in 22 at-bats (.273) during a six-game stretch entering the All-Star break but since then he's cooled off, managing just a single hit in his last 14 at-bats.
