Antonio Senzatela (R) Headshot

Senzatela will be added to the Rockies' rotation during the upcoming week and is line to start Wednesday's game against the Royals, Nick Groke of The Denver Post reports.

The Rockies moved Senzatela back to the bullpen a week earlier after the team recalled Chad Bettis from Triple-A Albuquerque to fill an opening in the rotation, but the rookie only made two appearances during his latest run as a reliever before earning another promotion back to the starting ranks. This time around, Senzatela will swap in for Jeff Hoffman, who was optioned to Albuquerque after a dismal eight-start stretch in which he's submitted a 6.80 ERA. Like Hoffman, Senzatela has regressed following a hot start to the season, with a decline in velocity representing a main factor in his decline. After going 9-2 with a 4.10 ERA over his first 14 starts of the season, the 22-year-old has turned in a 5.73 ERA and 1.30 WHIP over his subsequent 11 appearances (four starts).

Matt Kenseth Headshot

Kenseth finished fourth in the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway Saturday night.

The Joe Gibbs Racing star showed his Bristol excellence with a great run at the half-mile oval Saturday night. Kenseth qualified well and he raced up front among the leaders most of the night. He would even lead 11 laps at one point during the race. The good handling No. 20 Toyota would reward Kenseth with his seventh Top 5 of the season. He moves into eighth-place in the driver point standings as a result.

Michael Feliz (R) Headshot

Feliz (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Double-A Corpus Christi on Tuesday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Feliz recently returned to mound work, and everything apparently went off without a hitch, so he'll head to Corpus Christi. The length of his rehab assignment has yet to be determined, but he's expected to need multiple outings before rejoining the big-league bullpen. He'll likely return sometime after rosters expand at the beginning of September.

Tony Sipp (L) Headshot

Sipp (calf) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Double-A Corpus Christi on Tuesday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Sipp, who has been sidelined all month with right calf soreness, continues to inch closer to a return to the big-league bullpen. While the Astros haven't determined the length of his rehab assignment, he's expected to need multiple outings before being activated, which likely won't be until after rosters expand at the beginning of September. When he does return, he'll likely be used in lower-leverage situations given his unsightly 6.47 ERA through 32 innings this season.

Jordan Jankowski (R) Headshot

Jankowski was claimed off waivers by the Dodgers on Sunday.

A 28-year-old right-handed reliever, Jankowski was designated for assignment by the Astros earlier this week, but the Dodgers deemed him worthy of a 40-man roster spot. He has always been able to miss bats int he minors, but has struggled to throw strikes (12.4 percent walk rate) this year at Triple-A. Look for him to report to Triple-A Oklahoma City and be recalled when rosters expand in September.
2:12 pm (EST)
Corey Kluber (R) Headshot

Kluber (ankle) threw a side bullpen session Sunday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

This is an encouraging development, as Kluber, who exited his last start after just 74 pitches with a sprained ankle, didn't appear to have any issues during Sunday's session. The Indians will wait and see how Kluber feels Monday before determining his status for Wednesday's start against the Red Sox.
2:09 pm (EST)
Will Harris (R) Headshot

Harris (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Double-A Corpus Christi on Tuesday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Harris was able to complete a simulated inning over the weekend, his last hurdle before heading out on a brief rehab assignment. The Astros haven't determined how many rehab outings he'll need -- one or two -- but either way it sounds like he'll be back before the end of the week.
