    Seattle has optioned right-hander Taijuan Walker back to Triple-A, but it looks like the move might be more about keeping the 21-year-old rookie on his normal schedule rather than any sort of performance-based demotion.

    Addison Reed Diamondbacks

    At this point I like to imagine that Diamondbacks beat reporter Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic has the same routine so ingrained into his life that even on off days he wakes up, cooks a nice, sensible breakfast, and asks no one in particular “is Addison Reed still the closer?”

    Jul 9, 2014, 1:20 PM EDT

  6. Carl Crawford is ready to return, but the Dodgers aren’t planning to play him

    Jul 9, 2014, 12:46 PM EDT

    Carl Crawford

    Carl Crawford’s ankle injury led to Matt Kemp coming off the bench and rejoining the Dodgers’ starting lineup, but now that Crawford is ready to return it sounds like he’ll be the one on the bench most days.

    Brandon Workman has done a solid job for the Red Sox, posting a 4.13 ERA in 52 innings split between the rotation and bullpen, but the 25-year-old right-hander has been optioned back to Triple-A following last night’s loss to the White Sox.

    It seems like a sensible fit, as the Cardinals need rotation help with Michael Wacha and Jaime Garcia injured and the last-place Red Sox could be looking to sell off expensive veterans.
