Trevor Cahill (R) Headshot

Cahill will make his first start with the Royals on Saturday, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

Should everything stay on schedule, the right-hander will make his first post-trade start against Rick Porcello at Fenway Park. Cahill will not be in uniform Tuesday night yet, so a corresponding move still needs to be made in order to get him on the active roster.

Carlos Estévez (R) Headshot

Estevez was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

He has an 8.10 ERA, 1.86 WHIP and 18 strikeouts in 16.2 innings out of the big-league bullpen, but has been much better at Triple-A (1.78 ERA, 1.11 WHIP). Jairo Diaz was optioned to Triple-A as a corresponding move. Look for Estevez to be primarily used in low-leverage situations.
4:35 pm (EST)
Bobby Wahl (R) Headshot

Wahl (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Tuesday.

This is largely a paperwork move, as Wahl has already missed 60 days of action. He's still expected to be activated from the disabled list any day now, although the Athletics will need to clear space on the 40-man roster to bring him back into the fold. For the time being, Chris Bassitt will replace him on the 40-man.
4:31 pm (EST)
Jedd Gyorko (R) Headshot

Gyorko is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Rockies.

He has started 14 of the last 16 games, but is hitting just .204/.274/.352 with two home runs in 54 at-bats over that span. Greg Garcia will start at third base and hit eighth.
4:30 pm (EST)
Christopher Bassitt (R) Headshot

Bassitt (elbow) was activated from the 60-day disabled list and optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday.

Although he was deemed healthy enough to return from the disabled list, the Athletics thought it would be good to get him some more work in the minor leagues before returning to Oakland. To clear space for him on the 40-man roster, Bobby Wahl (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list.
4:28 pm (EST)
Carlos Beltrán (B) Headshot

Beltran is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Phillies, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Without the luxury of a designated hitter in Philadelphia, Beltran will head to the bench for a night off. The Astros will employ an outfield of Norichika Aoki, Derek Fisher and Josh Reddick while the veteran sits out, although Beltran could slot into left field for the series finale if the Astros really want his bat in action.
4:23 pm (EST)
Brian McCann (L) Headshot

McCann is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Phillies, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Despite cracking a pair of hits Monday night, McCann will head to the bench for a night off. Evan Gattis will take his place behind the dish.
4:20 pm (EST)
Matt Carpenter (L) Headshot

Carpenter (quadriceps) is starting at first base and leading off Tuesday against the Rockies.

He missed one game with leg cramps, but is back in the mix against righty Jon Gray. Carpenter is hitting .299/.427/.504 with four home runs and 30 runs in his last 40 games.
4:19 pm (EST)
Matt Dermody (L) Headshot

Dermody was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday, Gregor Chisholm of reports.

Dermody has been a solid relief arm for the Bisons this season, amassing a 3.29 ERA and a 37:9 K:BB in 41 innings of work. With Danny Barnes (shoulder) landing on the disabled list Tuesday, Dermody will replace him on the active roster to fill the void in the bullpen, although it's unlikely that the latter will fill as integral of a role moving forward given his one disastrous performance earlier in the season.
