Padres signed 1B/OF Allen Craig to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Craig hasn't appeared in the majors since 2015 and really struggled the previous two years in the minors before the Red Sox released him last June. The former All-Star is now 33 and is obviously a long shot to make the Opening Day roster in San Diego.

Brandon Crawford (head) is not in the Giants' starting lineup Tuesday versus the Dodgers.

Crawford was removed from Monday night's series opener at Dodger Stadium after a nasty collision with outfielder Gorkys Hernandez in the bottom of the fourth inning. Crawford took a knee to the head and is presumably going through MLB's concussion protocol. Alen Hanson is at shortstop and batting eighth Tuesday versus Dodgers left-hander Alex Wood.

Angels purchased the contract of INF Taylor Ward from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Ward will play third base and bat seventh Tuesday in his major league debut against the Padres and right-hander Brett Kennedy. The 24-year-old former catcher was slashing .349/.446/.531 with 14 home runs and 18 stolen bases in 102 games this season in the upper minors and makes for an intriguing fantasy option for the stretch run, assuming the Angels give him regular playing time. They really have no reason not to.

Robinson Cano is starting at first base and batting second Tuesday night against the Athletics.

It'll be his first major league game since he got hit with an 80-game PED suspension back in mid-May. Cano slashed .389/.450/.778 over 20 plate appearances on his minor league rehab assignment and is worth activating immediately in mixed fantasy leagues. He is expected to rotate between first base, second base, and third base, getting something close to everyday playing time.

Dee Gordon (shoulder) is back in the Mariners' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Athletics.

Gordon missed two games with minor soreness in his left shoulder. He is starting at second base and batting ninth Tuesday versus A's right-hander Mike Fiers, with Robinson Cano playing first base and batting second in his first game back from a PED suspension.
Aug 14 - 6:42 PM

Brian Dozier (heart) is in the Dodgers' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Giants.

Dozier was pulled from Monday's series opener after experiencing dizziness and an elevated heart rate, and an EKG taken after his departure showed some abnormalities. But with further testing he apparently checked out fine. Dozier will start at second base and bat leadoff Tuesday versus Giants left-hander Andrew Suarez.
Aug 14 - 6:39 PM

Dodgers activated LHP Alex Wood from the 10-day disabled list.

Wood will return to the Dodgers' starting rotation on Tuesday night against the rival Giants after missing just one turn due to left adductor (hip, groin) tightness. The 27-year-old southpaw has registered a 3.58 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 107/30 K/BB ratio in 123 1/3 innings this season with Los Angeles.
Aug 14 - 6:35 PM

Brian McCann (knee) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Thursday with Triple-A Fresno.

That would put him in line to return to the Astros' active roster sometime next week. McCann underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in early July and has made fairly swift progress. He'll likely share time behind the plate with Martin Maldonado down the stretch, if his health cooperates.
Aug 14 - 6:30 PM

George Springer (thumb) took batting practice, ran the bases, and made throws from the outfield on Tuesday at Minute Maid Park.

Jake Kaplan of The Athletic writes that "all signs point to his activation Friday, the first day he's eligible to return" from the disabled list. Springer has been out since August 6 with a minor left thumb sprain.

Nationals manager Davey Martinez said Tuesday that Koda Glover will be the team's primary closer.

But he will not be used on Tuesday night in St. Louis after pitching Sunday and giving up a walk-off home run in the ninth inning Monday. Sean Doolittle (foot), Kelvin Herrera (shoulder), and Ryan Madson (back) are all on the disabled list, so the Nationals are having to turn to a guy who has logged only 1 2/3 innings this season at the major league level. Glover did put up a promising 2.25 ERA and 10/2 K/BB ratio in eight innings at Triple-A Syracuse after returning from a shoulder injury in mid-July.

Sean Doolittle (foot) threw off a mound Tuesday.

Doolittle told reporters after the workout that he's working on some mechanical adjustments that will allow him to pitch through a stress reaction in his left foot. That injury has kept him sidelined for going on six weeks. There is no clear timetable for his return, but late-August seems like a safe target. Koda Glover is probably the favorite for saves right now in Washington with Kelvin Herrera (shoulder) and Ryan Madson (back) also on the shelf.
Aug 14 - 6:04 PM

Nationals placed RHP Ryan Madson on the 10-day disabled list with a back injury.

The official diagnosis is lumbar nerve root irritation. Madson has apparently been battling the injury for some time and aggravated it during a disastrous appearance Sunday night against the Cubs. It's unclear how long he might be sidelined. Koda Glover figures to see the majority of save opportunities until Sean Doolittle (foot) is ready to come off the disabled list, even though Glover surrendered a walk-off homer in the ninth inning Monday in St. Louis.
