by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(3:00 am ET) Gosselin got the start at second base and hit second Sunday, going 3-for-5 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in a win over the Reds.

It was his first start since July 6, but Gosselin certainly made the most of it. He's now hitting .308/.379/.462 in 26 at-bats on the month though, which might earn him some more playing time going forward.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/24/2016) Blanco exited Sunday's game against the Pirates with a broken index finger and is expected to land on the disabled list, Matt Breen of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Given the nature of the injury, the 32-ywear-old infielder will almost certainly miss more than the minimum 15 days because of it. Taylor Featherston, who was not in Sunday's Triple-A lineup, appears the likely candidate for recall prior to Monday's game against the Marlins.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/24/2016) Lawrie (hamstring) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Tigers.

Lawrie hasn't made an appearance since suffering from a tight left hamstring in Thursday's contest, but the White Sox seem confident that the injury isn't a significant issue. He underwent an MRI on Friday that cleared him of any structural damage, so he's just waiting for the tightness he's experiencing to subside. Carlos Sanchez, who was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte earlier Sunday, will fill in for Lawrie at the keystone.


Athletics' Arismendy Alcantara: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/24/2016) Alcantara was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Sunday.

Alcantara logged only two appearances during his latest stint with the Athletics, going 1-for-5 with three strikeouts. The 24-year-old brings value with his ability to steal bases and play multiple positions, but until he shows more improvement with his hit tool, he may have a difficult time sticking in the majors for extended stretches of time.


White Sox's Carlos Sanchez: Called up to serve as 26th man
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/24/2016) Sanchez was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday, Scot Gregor of the Daily Herald reports.

Though the Tigers and White Sox aren't technically playing doubleheader Sunday, both teams will be allowed to carry 26 men since the two sides have to first conclude Saturday's game, which was postponed in the ninth inning due to rain with the score tied at 3-3. The single game originally scheduled for Sunday will be played immediately after the postponed game is completed, but Sanchez is eligible to play in either or both contests. He'll likely be sent back down to Charlotte immediately after Sunday's games are completed.

(7/24/2016) Giavotella is out of the lineup Sunday against the Astros, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.
