Dodgers signed LHP Manny Banuelos to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

A former top prospect with the Yankees before injuries took him off the map, Banuelos posted a 4.93 ERA over 95 innings with the Angels' Triple-A affiliate last season while mostly pitching in relief. He turns 27 in March and will likely serve as relief depth in the minors.

Zack Wheeler struck out a season-high 10 batters over seven innings and did not factor into the decision in the Mets' 2-1 loss to the Giants in extra-innings on Monday.

Wheeler held the Giants offense scoreless through the first six frames before surrendering a game-tying RBI double to Alen Hanson with two outs in the seventh inning. He allowed just one run on five hits in a dominant performance, but was forced to settle for a no-decision and the Mets lost the contest in extra-innings. The 28-year-old right-hander racked up an absurd 21 swinging strikes on 113 pitches. In 15 starts since June 1, Wheeler owns a sparkling 2.71 ERA and 93/28 K/BB ratio over 96 1/3 innings. He’ll face the Nationals at home in his next start on Saturday.

Dan Winkler earned his second save of the year on Monday night against the Pirates.

Winkler gave up a leadoff single to Francisco Cervelli in the bottom of the ninth inning, but he rallied to strike out two of the final three batters he faced and secured a big 1-0 victory for Atlanta. A.J. Minter blew a save in ugly fashion Saturday against the Rockies and hasn't pitched since, so perhaps we'll see more of Winkler in the ninth inning moving forward. Arodys Vizcaino remains sidelined with a shoulder injury.

Corey Kluber netted his 16th win of the season Monday in the Indians' 5-4 defeat of the Red Sox.

Kluber dug himself an early hole, giving up two runs in the bottom of the first inning and one more in the bottom of the second, but he settled in nicely from there, ultimately finishing with six strikeouts against one walk. He scattered nine hits. The veteran right-hander is now 16-6 on the season with a 2.74 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and 166/23 K/BB ratio in 174 1/3 innings. He'll go for win No. 17 this weekend in Kansas City.

Kendrys Morales homered twice, tallying four total RBI, in the Blue Jays' 5-3 win over the Orioles on Monday.

Morales put the Jays on the board with a solo shot off O's starter Andrew Cashner in the bottom of the fourth inning before tagging Cashner again for a three-run blast in the bottom of the fifth. The veteran slugger also went yard in Sunday's series finale against the Yankees. He's up to 16 homers and 45 RBI in 103 games this year, to go along with a .252/.334/.439 overall slash line.

Chris Archer was lifted from Monday's start versus the Braves with left leg discomfort.

Archer appeared to have tweaked something while he was batting. The Pirates are deeming his exiting precautionary, so it seems safe to call the right-hander day-to-day. Archer allowed one run on five hits and one walk over four innings of work before being pulled.

Jose Altuve (knee) is set to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

That had been the indication and Astros manager A.J. Hinch confirmed as much Monday. Altuve played in one rehab game Sunday, singling and getting hit by a pitch in his four plate appearances. The second baseman has been sidelined since late July with right knee discomfort.

George Springer was scratched from the Astros' lineup Monday due to left quad soreness.

Manager A.J. Hinch indicated that Springer would be available off the bench, so it appears that the club is just being overly cautious here. Tyler White entered the lineup in Springer's place.

MLB.com's Greg Johns writes that the Mariners could be shooting for the August 30-September 2 series versus the Athletics for James Paxton's (forearm) return.

Paxton played catch for the second straight day Monday and is expected to throw off a mound next. He's eligible for activation from the disabled list on Saturday, but it sounds like it will likely be about a week after that when he returns. Paxton landed on the DL last week with a left forearm contusion after he was struck by a line drive.

Shohei Ohtani (elbow) threw a 29-pitch simulated game on Monday.

Ohtani faced both right- and left-handed hitters and "all went well," according to the Angels. Things continue to progress in a positive direction as he tries to pitch with a partially torn right ulnar collateral ligament. The Angels have said previously that Ohtani will not pitch in the minors during his rehab, which means it might not be long before he rejoins the rotation even if it's on a limited pitch count initially. A lengthier simulated game figures to be next on the docket.

Dodgers activated RHP Kenley Jansen from the 10-day disabled list.

Jansen visited a cardiologist on Monday and was given clearance to return to action. He is no longer on blood thinners but is still taking heart medication and is expected to require another surgery over the offseason. However, Jansen is all systems go now following a two-week absence because of an irregular heartbeat. The closer was initially given a 4-6 week timetable but it's looked for the last week like he was going to easily beat that.
Aug 20 - 6:47 PM

Manny Machado (wrist) is in the Dodgers' lineup Monday.

Machado exited Sunday's game after he was hit on the left wrist by a pitch, but X-rays came back clean and he's back in there a day later. He's at shortstop and batting third against Austin Gomber and the Cardinals.
