Not bad, Yasiel Puig. Not bad at all.
First pitch: Braves-Mets gets the AL day underway at 1:10 p.m. ET, while AL action begins at 2:10 with Cards-Brewers.
Interleague DH issues: David Ortiz is 10-for-25 with a couple of homers off Barry Zito, so he'll probably be back in the lineup tonight. If so, Mike Napoli (foot) will get another day off.
Streaming starters: Ouch, Rick Porcello. We're down to 79-47 for the season. Today's selection is new Cub Jake Arrieta (owned in 1.5 percent owned) against the Nats, while Thursday's pick is the still-underrated Jose Quintana (12.6 percent owned) versus the Royals in Kansas City. Arrieta has allowed just one run over 13 innings in two starts as a Cub, and even though he's teased us in short stints before, let's give him a shot here.
On to the rest of the news:
- Twins C Joe Mauer has been placed on the seven-day concussion DL. As always with this ailment, it's hard to say how long he'll be out.
- In other Twins' news, OF Oswaldo Arcia will miss "multiple games" with a wrist injury, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
- Tigers 3B Miguel Cabrera was injured on a ninth-inning swing last night, and the team isn't sure if it's a re-aggravation of his strained lower abdomen. Cabrera's status for tonight is unclear, and you might want to bench him if you can't wait to see the Tigers' lineup card.
- Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista is on the DL with a hip injury, and will be shut down for two weeks before a re-evaluation. The phrase "shut down for the season" has already been floated, but Bautista dismissed it. Hmm ...
- Mike Trout (hamstring) missed another game Tuesday. The Angels hope Trout will play tonight, but he needs to show them that he can run the bases first.
- Brewers OF Carlos Gomez (knee) is still day-to-day.
- Red Sox SP Ryan Dempster will be able to start as soon as Tuesday after serving a five-game suspension for throwing 74 consecutive pitches at Alex Rodriguez.
- After another decent rehab outing, Roy Halladay's next start could be for the Phillies.
- Braves OF Justin Upton missed Tuesday's game with a back strain, but might be able to return today.
- Mariners 2B Nick Franklin will be out until at least Friday or Saturday after suffering a cut on his right knee.
- Tony Cingrani hopes to make his next start for the Reds after leaving early on Tuesday due to a lower back strain.
- Another DL stint for Rangers SP Alexi Ogando? It's impressive that the Rangers are in first place with all their pitching injuries.
- This article from the Giants' website suggests that SP Chad Gaudin might have developed carpal tunnel syndrome by taking too many notes on opponents, and using his laptop too often to watch video of opponents. No, I'm not kidding.
- Braves SP Paul Maholm (wrist) is expected to start against the Cardinals on Thursday after a monthlong absence.
- Pirates OF Starling Marte (hand) is still day-to-day.
- Remember Brett Anderson? He might return to the A's rotation soon. If you draft Anderson next season, you're not allowed to complain when he lands on the DL again.
- Another save for LaTroy Hawkins, and another sketchy rehab update for usual Mets closer Bobby Parnell. Hawkins has five saves over the last 15 days, and is owned in just 1.6 percent of FOXSports.com leagues. Get him, you knuckleheads.
- 3B Mike Moustakas will return to the Royals' lineup tonight after missing some time with a calf injury.
- With Carlos Corporan on the concussion DL, the Astros have called up C Max Stassi (.277 BA, 17 HR, .863 OPS at Double A). Check him out, AL-only owners.
- With Jose Fernandez nearing his innings limit, the Marlins are thinking about skipping him in the rotation so he can pitch later into the season. This seems like a nuisance for Fernandez's fantasy owners, who were already planning for an early September shutdown. Sorry, folks - the Fish have just added to your ownership workload.
- Does this story make you worry about Jim Johnson's status as the Orioles' closer? I can't tell.
See you back here tomorrow morning.
