Indians' Tyler Naquin: Stays hot with two-hit night in loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Naquin sent 2-for-4 with a double in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Orioles.

The 25-year-old continued what has been a scorching July with his fifth multi-hit outing of the month, and second straight such performance. Naquin is slashing .327/.386/.731 with three doubles, six homers and 12 RBI in his 52 at-bats since July 1.

Cubs' Matt Szczur: Stays with active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Szczur has not played the last two games and has just 20 at-bats this month, but he stayed up with the Cubs when Dexter Fowler was activated Friday.

Szczur has been a strong asset off the bench this season, but he's a luxury the Cubs may not be able to afford much longer, as both Jorge Soler and Chris Coghlan are nearing returns from injury, and Albert Almora - Friday's roster casualty - is waiting in the wings as well.

Astros' Evan Gattis: Returns to lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gattis (hand) is back in the lineup Saturday against the Astros, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

He was forced to miss one start due a hand contusion but Gattis will step back in Saturday to face right-hander Jered Weaver. Gattis has failed to hit or get on base at a palatable clip so far this season, but his fantasy value has been salvaged to a significant extent by his power production and return to catcher eligibility.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Placed on 15-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed was placed on the 15-day DL Saturday due to a right hip impingement.

The Diamondbacks swapped out shortstops on the DL Saturday, as Chris Owings was activated as a corresponding move. Ahmed's 43 wRC+ is the lowest mark in baseball among hitters with 300-plus plate appearances, and the next closest player is Alcides Escobar with a wRC+ of 60, so Ahmed is on his own level of offensive futility. Owings should get the bulk of the starts at shortstop for the Diamondbacks while Ahmed is out.

Diamondbacks' Chris Owings: Activated, starting at shortstop Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Owings (plantar fasciitis) was reinstated from the 15-day DL on Saturday and is starting at shortstop and hitting fifth against the Reds.

He will take the place of Nick Ahmed on the active roster after Ahmed placed on the 15-day DL with a right hip impingement. Owings figures to handle the shortstop duties while Ahmed is out, and he will hope to pick up where he left off prior to the injury. Still just 24 years old, Owings' .759 OPS is the best mark of his career. He has rewarded those who did not completely give up on him after he turned in a sub-replacement level season in 2015.
