  • Manny Machado SS | BAL

    Dodgers' Manny Machado: Agreement reached for Dodgers deal

    Machado will be sent to the Dodgers after the team reached a deal with Baltimore to send five players back in exchange, Eduardo A. Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    The deal has reportedly been close for over a day and appears to have been finally completed. The package will be headlined by Double-A outfielder Yusniel Diaz and also includes Dean Kremer, Zach Pop, Rylan Bannon and Breyvic Valera. The move will see Machado get a large upgrade in lineup to offset a similar downgrade in home park.

  • Josh Harrison 2B | PIT

    Pirates' Josh Harrison: Chance for return this weekend

    Harrison (hamstring) will participate in a workout Thursday that will determine his availability for Friday's series opener in Cincinnati, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

    Though a return to the field for Friday's game seems a tad optimistic, the club appears confident that Harrison avoided any major injury when he suffered the hamstring discomfort during Sunday's game against Milwaukee. Even if he passes with flying colors, the Pirates may elect to give Harrison a couple more days off in order to be certain of his health.

  • Nick Tropeano SP | LAA

    Angels' Nick Tropeano: Lined up for Saturday's start

    Tropeano (shoulder) will take the hill against Houston on Saturday.

    Tropeano has been on the 10-day DL since June 15 due to right shoulder inflammation. The 27-year-old was able to make a second rehab start with High-A Inland Empire on Saturday, and didn't experience any physical issues, though he did allow three runs (two earned) on seven hits across four innings of work. Through 10 starts for the Angles this year, he's logged a 4.83 ERA and 1.25 WHIP.

  • Matt Albers RP | MIL

    Brewers' Matt Albers: Starts rehab assignment

    Albers (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Wisconsin on Wednesday.

    Albers has been on the shelf since the middle of June due shoulder inflammation. He was able too throw a pair of bullpen sessions last weekend and will likely require a couple outings at the minor-league level before reporting back to the Brewers bullpen.

  • Charlie Tilson LF | CHW

    White Sox's Charlie Tilson: Optioned to Charlotte

    Tilson was sent down to Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday.

    Over his past 12 games, Tilson hit just .143 with a .393 OPS with no extra-base hits while serving as a fourth outfielder for the White Sox. With Avisail Garcia (hamstring) and Nicky Delmonico (hand) set to return from the DL in the near future, there wasn't any space for Tilson on the active roster. The club announced that a corresponding move would be made prior to Friday's game against the Mariners.

  • Zack Granite CF | MIN

    Twins' Zack Granite: Placed on minor-league DL

    Granite was placed on the minor-league 7-day DL on Wednesday due to a right shoulder contusion, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Granite previously spent a few weeks on the disabled list due to the same injury near the end of April, and it wouldn't be surprising if he's been dealing with shoulder problems throughout the course of the 2018 campaign. Over 66 games with Triple-A Rochester, he's slashed just .212/.284/.246 with eight extra-base hits and four RBI.

  • Rays' Jose Alvarado: Returns to Rays

    Alvarado was activated from the family medical emergency list Wednesday, Marc Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Alvarado will be back in the Rays bullpen for this weekend's intrastate series against Miami after being placed on the emergency list last Wednesday. Across 41 appearances with Tampa Bay this year, Alvarado has logged a 2.58 ERA and 1.23 WHIP.

  • Rays' Wilson Ramos: Officially put on disabled list

    Ramos was placed on the 10-day DL with a left hamstring strain Wednesday, Marc Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times reports.

    As expected, Ramos was put on the shelf after suffering the injury against the Twins on Saturday. There Rays have yet to address a timetable for Ramos, but it's likely that he will be sidelined through the remainder of this month, and could be out until mid-August depending on how quickly the hamstring is able to recover.

  • T.J. Rivera 3B | NYM

    Mets' T.J. Rivera: Avoids major injury; shut down for 10 days

    Rivera (elbow) will be shut down for 10 days after suffering a setback during a minor-league contest Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    DiComo added that Rivera avoided a major injury but he did leave the contest due to soreness in his elbow. He's expected to resume activities next weekend, though he will likely require some time before resuming a rehab assignment. A firm timetable has yet to come to light, but don't expect to see him back with the Mets until the middle of August.

  • Royals' Eric Skoglund: Starts rehab assignment

    Skoglund (elbow) will embark upon a rehab assignment, beginning with the Royals' Rookie-League team Wednesday.

    Skoglund has been on the shelf since late May due to a left UCL sprain. He didn't require any sort of surgical procedure but is expected to need a bunch of outings at the minor-league level before returning to Kansas City's staff.
