Josh Rutledge was a late scratch from Monday's lineup.

Charlie Culberson gets the start at SS tonight, after the late last second scratch of Rutledge. His status is going to be day-to-day until we know more.

Angel Pagan (back) is going to do a full pregame workout and is getting closer to being cleared for a rehab assignment.

Pagan can be activated at any time that the medical staff give him the thumbs up. If things go well on Tuesday, he will be activated while the Giants are on their road trip that begins on Friday, August 1 and runs through August 10th.

Hector Sanchez failed his concussion test and will have to wait at least another three to four days.

Looks like Andrew Susac will continue to serve as the backup catcher in San Francisco for the mean time.

Royals designated C Brett Hayes for assignment.

This was a result of the recent trade, that brought Erik Kratz to the Royals in the trade of Danny Valencia to Toronto. Kratz will take over immediately as the Royal's backup catcher.

Danny Valencia was traded to Toronto for Erik Kratz and Liam Hendriks.

Valencia moves to a more hitter friendly environment in Toronto, and he is going to get a shot against left-handed pitching, at the least, with the banged up state of the Blue Jay infield. Kratz moves to KC to become the back-up catcher to Salvador Perez. Hendricks was a SP in limited action with the Jays, but will go to Triple-A and if called up, will most likely serve as a middle reliever.

Brandon Belt passed his concussion test and said he feels good. He is hoping to do some baseball work Monday.

Now is the time to make sure he is available on your bench, as it appears that he will be activated at some point this week, although the team is not putting any definite date for his activation out there yet for our consumption.

Aaron Hill (hand) is expected to return to the lineup on Tuesday.

The crafty second baseman is in the midst of a 10 game hit streak, but has now missed two straight games after suffering a bruised hand. He has really struggled this season, but should turn it around in the next two months and makes for a great buy low candidate in fantasy leagues.

Blue Jays traded RHP Liam Hendriks to the Royals.

Always amazed when terrible players get traded, but not shocked that the Royals were the team acquiring the terrible player. Hendriks has a career ERA of 6.06 in the major leagues and has no business being on any MLB team, yet alone, a fantasy team.

Carlos Beltran continues to throw and is now up to 100-120 feet. Yankees think he might be able to play the outfield after this road trip.

The Yankees have been using Beltran as their primary designated hitter while Beltran works on strengthening his injured shoulder. The old outfielder has really struggled this season by posting a slash line of .228/.287/.427 and is barely ownable in fantasy leagues.
