Sean Doolittle is dealing with shoulder soreness.

This will not help his trade value come deadline time, but word is that if the Yankees decide to hold on to their prized left-handed arms this soreness will not matter. With the Yankees falling out of the race though, there is a chance that Doolittle is the bronze medal in this trade deadline bullpen war.

Chris Heston (oblique strain) has been placed on the 60-day disabled list.

Heston has pitched well since being demoted, but the other day he left his start with an oblique issue. The expectation was that it was a serious matter; something that would warrant an extended absence, and the prophecy came true. Consider him out of the fantasy picture going forward.

Joe Panik has been placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

The expectation is that Panik should easily clear these seven days, but they just want to make sure everything checks out between the shoulders before trotting him back out there. If he isn't cleared after the seven days, Panik will automatically be transferred to the 15-day DL.

Nets tendered an offer to Markel Brown making him a restricted free agent.

Brown is unlikely to receive big offers, which essentially means that the Nets will retain his services. If some team does manage to pay him above what is expected, the Nets may just let him walk for the "greener" pastures.

Billy Burns is out of the Athletics lineup on Wednesday.

Burns' struggles at the plate continue to cost him playing time, especially with the return of Josh Reddick. Coco Crisp will start in centerfield tonight and bat leadoff as the A's take on Jake Peavy.

Mariners have promoted D.J. Peterson on Wednesday.

Peterson was once a top prospect but had fallen from grace over the past season and a half. He has earned a chance with a hot month in AAA however, as he hit .326 with six home runs over the past month.

Mariners have removed Nathan Karns from their starting rotation.

Karns surrendered nine earned runs over his past 10 innings and had not completed more than four innings in a start since May. With that, the Mariners have decided to try a different approach to their rotation and will give Wade LeBlanc a shot to earn a spot in the rotation.

Felix Hernandez (calf) won't likely return until after the all-star break.

This has been the presumed timeline since the injury occurred so it shouldn't come as any surprise. Reports have been positive about his rehab, so the hope is that he will be strong immediately upon his return.

Joe Panik (head) is out of the Giants lineup on Wednesday.

Panik seems destined for the DL with a concussion, but that is not yet official. Ramiro Pena will start at second base in his place and bat eighth. Though it seems unlikely to be sustainable, Pena has been hitting the ball well. He has three consecutive multi-hit games.
