    Jul 23, 2014, 5:17 PM EDT

    George Springer

    Springer got off to a slow start following his mid-April call-up and his strikeout total leads the league, but he’s smacked 20 homers with a .900 OPS in 61 games since early May to rank as one of the league’s better all-around players during that span.

  7. Twins designate Matt Guerrier for assignment

    Jul 23, 2014, 4:46 PM EDT

    matt-guerrier-twins

    Matt Guerrier began this week with a nice-looking 2.67 ERA in 26 appearances for the Twins, but a 12/8 K/BB ratio in 27 innings showed that he was anything but impressive.

    Jul 23, 2014, 4:16 PM EDT

    Carlos Ruiz

    Ruiz hit poorly on a minor-league rehab assignment at Single-A, going 3-for-17 (.176) with three strikeouts and one walk in five games, but he’s avoided any post-concussion symptoms and the Phillies are convinced he’s ready to return.

    Jul 23, 2014, 11:51 AM EDT

    After back-to-back terrible seasons Jeff Francoeur’s chances of returning to the majors looked so bleak that last month he decided to take up pitching at Triple-A for the Padres’ affiliate, but now San Diego is actually calling him up and presumably he’ll mostly serve as an outfielder.

    Jul 23, 2014, 10:47 AM EDT

    Jim Johnson A's

    Oakland’s move to acquire Johnson and his $10 million salary from Baltimore never made a ton of sense this offseason and it’s worked out much worse than expected, as he almost immediately lost the closer gig and has a 6.25 ERA with 23 walks in 40 innings.

    Jul 23, 2014, 10:15 AM EDT

    Jul 22, 2014, 5:27 PM EDT

    Troy Tulowitzki

    Troy Tulowitzki exited Saturday’s game with what the Rockies called a “cramp” in his quadriceps, but now the star shortstop is out of the lineup tonight for the third consecutive game and it’s clear the injury is more serious.

    Jul 22, 2014, 4:46 PM EDT

    A’s outfielder Josh Reddick is off the disabled list after missing all but one week of the past two months with knee problems.

    Jul 22, 2014, 4:16 PM EDT

    At this point the Rangers’ injury situation is absurd.

  17. Cubs designate Darwin Barney for assignment, activate Emilio Bonifacio from disabled list

    Jul 22, 2014, 3:45 PM EDT

    Darwin Barney Getty

    Jul 22, 2014, 3:15 PM EDT

    masterson getty

  19. Yankees acquire Chase Headley from Padres

    Jul 22, 2014, 1:22 PM EDT

    Jul 22, 2014, 12:46 PM EDT

    cuddyer getty

    Cuddyer, who won the batting title last season by hitting .331 with a .919 OPS in 130 games, hit .317 with five homers and an .866 OPS in 31 games before the injury this year.

  21. No one is sure when Matt Cain will pitch for the Giants again

    Jul 22, 2014, 11:50 AM EDT

    Matt Cain

    After letting Matt Cain pitch (poorly) through a “cranky” elbow since spring training the Giants finally shut him down yesterday, placing him on the disabled list with elbow inflammation.

    Jul 22, 2014, 11:19 AM EDT

  24. Blue Jays call up pitching prospect Aaron Sanchez

    Jul 22, 2014, 10:15 AM EDT

    Aaron Sanchez AP

    Sanchez’s numbers this season haven’t been particularly impressive, including an underwhelming 4.19 ERA and 27/17 K/BB ratio in 34 innings at Triple-A, but he was a first-round draft pick in 2010 and ranked as a consensus top-50 prospect coming into this season.
