Twins 3B Miguel Sano gets chance to rest hamstring injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Twins third baseman Miguel Sano was held out of the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the White Sox. Sano is trying to play through a hamstring injury, and he was likely rested Thursday since it was a day game after a night game.

The hamstring injury didn't seem to bother Sano on Wednesday, as he homered for a third straight game. The rookie third baseman has been on a nice power surge, homering eight times in his last 14 games and slugging .833 in that span.

Since Aug. 5, Sano has a .323/.402/.742/1.144 slash line in his last 25 games. He has six doubles, 11 home runs and 28 RBI in that span.

Twins closer Glen Perkins is day to day again due to back injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Twins closer Glen Perkins' back problems flared up again Wednesday, which is why manager Paul Molitor turned to Kevin Jepsen to finish off a 3-0 win against the White Sox.

Perkins, who has been dealing with the back issue for a few weeks, picked up his first save Tuesday since Aug. 16. But after throwing 19 pitches, Perkins felt sore Wednesday. When he went to play catch, his back started to spasm and the left-hander was sent for an MRI.

"There's no bulging disc, no serious issue that we have to look at other than the fact that we've got to keep this thing from continuing to flare up," Molitor said, per MLB.com. "I think right now there's a good chance he might stay back and spend some time here with our guys. [We'll] try to get him back and see if we can get him out on the trip at some point."

Dodgers' Bolsinger starting Friday to give rotation an extra day of rest
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Dodgers pitcher Mike Bolsinger will start Friday's game against the Padres, manager Don Mattingly announced after Wednesday's game against the Giants.

"We've been wanting to slip him into the rotation to either move somebody forward or to give someone an extra day," Mattingly said, per MLB.com. "Just if somebody needs a blow, kind of looking at all our guys individually and what's best for them."

Mattingly said they don't plan to skip anyone in the rotation, so all the starters (Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Brett Anderson, Alex Wood and Mat Latos) will get an extra day of rest moving forward.

Bolsinger's last MLB start was July 29. He is 5-3 with a 2.83 ERA in 16 starts this season.

"You can anticipate he's going to be in this rotation for at least a turn," Mattingly said.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

US District Court Judge Richard Berman has nullified the NFL's four-game suspension of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

Berman said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell went too far in affirming punishment of Brady for the quarterback's alleged role in the Deflategate incident. This ruling means Brady is cleared to play Week 1 (Sept. 10) against the Steelers.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner played through a hand injury Wednesday against the Giants after getting hit by a pitch in the sixth inning.

“It got the tip of my pinkie and didn’t have feeling in it for a couple of innings, but I took some X-rays right away and everything’s good,” Turner said, per the Los Angeles Times.

Turner remained confident after the game he would be able to play Thursday against the Padres.

“It was numb but I knew right away there wasn’t anything broken,” he said.
