Pirates designated RHP Shane Carle for assignment.

The Pirates needed to clear some space on the 40-man roster following Saturday's trade with the Astros. Carle was just claimed off waivers from the Rockies earlier this month.

Aroldis Chapman's left knee flared up on him again Tuesday and he will likely undergo an MRI.

Chapman was removed from an appearance Tuesday night against the Marlins after throwing just six pitches. He also battled left knee discomfort in early July and skipped the All-Star Game to rest it. If he requires an extended absence, Dellin Betances or David Robertson could fill in at closer for the Yankees. There should be more information available by Wednesday evening.

Blake Snell fanned 11 Royals while allowing only one run over six innings in Tuesday's victory.

It's hard to believe Snell didn't have more trouble against a lineup that featured Hunter Dozier in the cleanup spot and Rosell Herrera batting fifth. Snell has allowed just two runs over 20 innings since coming off the disabled list at the beginning of the month. He's racked up 160 strikeouts in 139 innings on the season and his ERA is down to 2.07.

Kevin Gausman tossed eight shutout innings Tuesday in the Braves' 6-1 victory over the Pirates.

Gausman had to pitch out of jams in the second, sixth and seventh innings but was able to do so without any damage being done. He ultimately yielded just four hits on the night while walking two and striking out five. Gausman didn't pitch well in his first start as a Brave but has been excellent in three outings since, allowing only three runs over his last 22 innings. The righty has surrendered just one home run over his first four starts for the Braves after giving up 21 in 21 outings with the Orioles. He has a juicy matchup Sunday in Miami.

Dansby Swanson swatted a pair of two-run home runs Tuesday in Pittsburgh.

Swanson lined one just over the wall down the left-field line in the fifth inning off of Ivan Nova and then took reliever Michael Felix deep out to left-center in the seventh. It's the first multi-homer game in the young shortstop's major league career but the fourth longball over his last nine contests. Swanson has reached base in 11 straight games.

Tommy Pham has been diagnosed with a dislocated right ring finger.

Pham suffered the injury Tuesday night against the Royals while diving back into the first base bag in the bottom of the eighth inning. X-rays turned up negative for any fractures and the Rays are calling him day-to-day, but this could very well turn into another extended absence for the 30-year-old outfielder. He just missed two weeks of action after fracturing his right foot in just his second game with Tampa Bay.

Jose Abreu underwent surgery Tuesday on his lower abdomen (or groin area) and is not expected to resume baseball activities for two weeks.

Well, that escalated quickly. Abreu was scratched from the White Sox starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Twins due to what was called lower abdominal pain, and now comes word that he'll be sidelined through at least the early part of September. The first baseman had been on a tear, slashing .350/.400/.699 with nine home runs, nine doubles, and 26 RBI over his last 26 games. Matt Davidson played first base for the White Sox on Tuesday, with Daniel Palka at DH.
Aug 21 - 10:13 PM

Buster Posey (hip) is expected to play Wednesday.

John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday evening that Posey is facing season-ending hip surgery to repair his labrum and clean out bone spurs, but that procedure apparently won't happen right away as the Giants don't want to wave the white flag on 2018 just yet. They're currently 7 1/2 games back of the Diamondbacks for first place in the National League West standings and seven games out of the crowded hunt for the second National League Wild Card slot. Nick Hundley is starting behind the plate for the Giants on Tuesday versus the Mets.

Angels placed OF Justin Upton on the 10-day disabled list with a left index finger laceration.

That explains his absence from the Angels' starting lineup for Tuesday night's series opener against the Diamondbacks. Upton sliced his finger on a wine glass at his home in Arizona on Sunday night and needed four stitches. It's unclear how long he might be sidelined. Jabari Blash will be called up from Triple-A Salt Lake in a corresponding move.

George Springer (quad) remains out of the Astros' starting lineup on Tuesday.

Springer was scratched from Monday's series opener at Seattle's Safeco Field due to soreness in his left quadriceps. He is still considered day-to-day. Tony Kemp will start in center field and bat ninth Tuesday versus Mariners right-hander Mike Leake.
Aug 21 - 7:15 PM

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.
Aug 21 - 6:42 PM

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.
