Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press confirms Major League Baseball has launched an investigation into sexual assault claims against Miguel Sano.

Minnesota-based photographer Betsy Bissen shared a post on social media last month detailing an incident during an autograph signing at a mall in 2015, during which Sano allegedly grabbed Bissen by the arm and tried to pull her into a private hallway. An MLB spokesman told Berardino that the league began its "review of the matter immediately upon learning of the allegations." Twins GM Thad Levine said Thursday on MLB Network Radio that the team is "going to let that process unfold" and expects to "hear from Major League Baseball ideally before spring training so we have a full understanding."

Nelson Cruz is out of the Mariners' starting lineup on Tuesday due to back spasms.

The veteran slugger is considered day-to-day. Robinson Cano will serve as the Mariners' DH and bat second Tuesday night against the Astros, who are starting Brad Peacock in what will essentially be a bullpen game.

Nationals activated RHP Kelvin Herrera from the 10-day disabled list.

Herrera will be available out of the Nationals' bullpen on Tuesday night against the Phillies after missing two weeks with a right rotator cuff impingement. He could immediately jump back into the fill-in closer role, pushing Koda Glover into more of a setup gig. Sean Doolittle (foot) seems to be a couple weeks away still.

Astros activated 2B Jose Altuve from the 10-day disabled list.

Altuve will return to the Astros' starting lineup on Tuesday night in Seattle after missing a little under a month with right knee discomfort. The star second baseman was batting .329/.392/.464 with nine home runs, 46 RBI, 14 stolen bases, and 64 runs scored in 104 games before the injury.

Craig Mish of SiriusXM reports that Starlin Castro has cleared revocable trade waivers.

Castro is now eligible to be dealt to any team, and there would seem to be a pretty good chance that the Marlins can find a trade partner for him. The 28-year-old second baseman currently ranks fifth in the National League with 139 hits. He is making $10.86 million this season, is owed $11.86 million in 2019, and carries a $16 million team option (or $1 million buyout) for 2020.

Matt Carpenter is getting the night off Tuesday against the Dodgers.

It's just a routine breather for the MVP candidate. Jose Martinez will start at first base and hit leadoff versus Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu.
Aug 21 - 6:12 PM

Joey Votto (leg) is hoping to be activated from the disabled list when first eligible on Sunday.

Votto has been out since August 16 with a right lower leg contusion that actually dates back to a hit-by-pitch on August 4. He told reporters Tuesday that he's feeling better after several days of rest. The star first baseman has the goods to put up big fantasy numbers down the stretch in a pretty good Reds lineup.

Starling Marte remains out of the Pirates' starting lineup on Tuesday against the Braves.

Marte got benched Monday for showing a lack of effort on Sunday, and his absence Tuesday is apparently for a doctor's appointment, though manager Clint Hurdle declined to elaborate. Adam Frazier is in center field and batting second for the Pirates on Tuesday night versus Braves right-hander Kevin Gausman.

Yu Darvish is done for the season after an MRI showed a stress reaction on the tip of his right elbow and a strain in his right triceps.

Darvish was sent for the MRI after leaving his rehab start Sunday at Low-A South Bend after pitching just one inning. Signed to a six-year, $126 million free agent contract over the winter, the 32-year-old right-hander made only eight starts for Chicago this season, to the tune of a 4.95 ERA and 1.43 WHIP. He should be ready for the beginning of spring training next February and will look to hit the reset button on his Cubs tenure.
Aug 21 - 5:27 PM

Edwin Encarnacion (hand) is on track to come off the disabled list Thursday.

MLB.com's Jordan Bastian notes that nothing is set in stone, but Thursday is the "likely scenario right now." The veteran slugger has been out since August 12 with a right hand contusion. He's sitting on a .778 OPS with 25 home runs and 81 RBI through 104 games this season.
Aug 21 - 5:19 PM

Gary Sanchez (groin) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Thursday in the Gulf Coast League.

That's a day earlier than expected. Sanchez should advance to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre over the weekend and could be back on the Yankees' active roster by the middle of next week. The power-hitting catcher has appeared in just three games for the Yankees since June 24 due to a lingering groin injury, but he is capable of helping fantasy championship pursuits down the stretch.
Aug 21 - 5:15 PM

CC Sabathia (knee) will return to the Yankees' starting rotation Friday in Baltimore.

That'll mean a minimum 10-day DL stint for the big left-hander, who's been out since August 13 with mild inflammation in his right knee. Sabathia holds a 7-4 record, 3.32 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and 106/41 K/BB ratio in 119 1/3 innings (22 starts) this season for New York. He makes for a decent fantasy play against the last-place O's.
