Mark Mulder left Angels camp on Saturday in order to have an x-ray performed on his ankle, MLB.com reports.

Mulder wasn't assured a spot in the Angels' rotation, but his return to baseball with altered mechanics is now in jeopardy. At least this isn't a recurrence of his prior shoulder woes.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson

Jake Peavy(back tightness) will have next rehab start pushed back a couple of days

Peavy, who had a setback in his rehab on Wednesday, will have his next start moved backed. The move is due to him not being 100 percent physically yet and he is having trouble getting comfortable on the mound. Based on his next start the Giants should layout a plan for his return to the rotation. Pitching depth can't come soon enough as the Giants lead over the Dodgers for first in the NL West is a half game. Analysis: Matt Selz

Update: Cano is suffering from Ear Infection

The Mariners now believe the Cano, who has been out since Thursday with flu-like symptoms, has been suffering from an Ear Infection. It appears as though he will try and play on Saturday after feeling better on Friday. Cano received medication and IV treatment to keep his weight up. Analysis: Matt Selz

Josh Hamilton went 2-for-3 with a walk, a pair of solo homers and three runs scored during Friday’s 7-4 victory versus the Red Sox.

Needless to say, this was a big night for Hamilton in more ways than one. The veteran slugger belted his first MLB homer since August 24th of last year in the bottom of the second inning then followed up with another deep drive during the fourth. With five hits over his last 11 at-bats, it is time to get Hamilton in fantasy lineups. Analysis: Nate Miller

Alvin Gentry will have a second interview with the Pelicans

Gentry, currently the lead assistant for Golden State, was extended a second interview with the Pelicans brass. The Pelicans are looking to replace the fired Monty Williams with an up-tempo-style offensive coach and as lead assistant, Gentry was responsible for play calling that led the Warriors to the leagues number 1 offense and a 67-15 record in the regular season. Although he is the first candidate to be interviewed a second time, this time in New Orleans instead of San Francisco, there are other candidates in the race namely Jeff Van Gundy and the newly fired Tom Thibodeau. As usual we will just have to see where the annual coaching carrousel winds up. Analysis: Matt Selz

Shawn Tolleson picked up a save in Friday’s 7-4 win over the Red Sox, retiring the side in order during a scoreless top of the ninth inning.

Tolleson has now put together four consecutive hitless innings out of the Rangers bullpen, as the 27-year-old righty has quickly turned into quite the closer in Texas. Dating back to May 20th, Tolleson has nailed down 6-of-6 save opportunities while allowing just two hits and a walk with six strikeouts across six scoreless frames. Analysis: Nate Miller

Yovani Gallardo turned in six solid innings in Friday’s 7-4 win over the Red Sox, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits and three walks while striking out five.

Gallardo turned in a second straight strong outing for the Rangers on Friday, as the veteran righty has given up just three earned runs on eight hits and four walks while collecting 11 strikeouts across his last 12 innings. Gallardo no longer has the same strikeouts potential he once did and lacks the consistency to be relied upon on a start-to-start basis in fantasy leagues. However, he should be owned in most deeper mixed formats. Gallardo will climb back atop the mound Thursday night versus the White Sox. Analysis: Nate Miller

Hanley Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and a couple of runs scored in Friday’s 7-4 loss to the Rangers.

Ramirez is certainly enjoying the visit to Rangers Ballpark, as the 31-year-old slugger has gone 4-for-8 with a couple of home runs over the past two days. After going 22 games without a homer, Ramirez seems to have found his power stroke. Analysis: Nate Miller

Steven Wright threw 5 2/3 innings during Friday’s 7-4 loss to the Rangers, giving up three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out four.

Wright has not been great through his three consecutive turns in the Boston rotation, but has given the Red Sox some steady innings. Over that span, the 30-year-old knuckleballer has posted a 3.71 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 10-to-3 K/BB ratio across 17 innings. With Manager Terry Francona set to deploy a six-man rotation in the coming days, Wrights next outing is slated for Thursday afternoon against the Twins. Analysis: Nate Miller

Cubs are targeting Ben Zobrist in trade talks

A lack of bench depth for Joe Maddon is what seems to be fueling the interest from the Cubs. Injuries and poor starts from players thought to be everyday players has wreaked havoc on Maddon's ability to rest his starters. Tommy La Stella and Chris Denorfia have missed significant time with injuries and Arismendy Alcantara and Javier Baez have really struggled to start this campaign, with Baez being optioned to Triple-A and dealing with the death of his sister. As of yet Billy Beane, the GM of the A's, has yet to indicate whether Oakland will be sellers at the deadline and whether Zobrist is even available. Zobrist could certainly provide some veteran utility depth for a young, talented, team that has high hopes this season. Analysis: Matt Selz

Joe Smith (Neck) was unavailable Friday night

Mike Scioscia indicated that Joe Smith has been dealing with a knot in his neck that affects his delivery and thus the reliever was not available for the Halos at the end of Friday's game. The Angels' skipper also said that Smith has been getting treatment for it. It does not seem like a serious injury and should clear up in the next day or so. Look for the typical set-up man to resume that role in the next couple of days when his neck allows him to produce his normal delivery. Analysis: Matt Selz

Update: Abreu doubtful for Saturday with swollen finger

Abreu left Friday's game with an irritated right index finger. It appears as though this injury will cost the slugger at least one game at this point. What caused the irritation and swelling is still unknown however it is an issue he had previously this season. Updates will come as more is known. Analysis: Matt Selz

Curtis Granderson went 1-for-4 with a solo homer during Friday night’s 4-3 loss to the Marlins.

It is beyond fair to say that Granderson is a liability to fantasy owners in the batting-average department, as he has consistently been around the .230 mark dating back to 2012. However, the veteran outfielder still has plenty of pop and patience to provide value in deeper leagues. Analysis: Nate Miller

Lucas Duda went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday’s 4-3 loss to the Marlins.

Simply put, Duda has located his power stroke. Not only has the big first baseman hit three homers in the past two contests, but he has belted six baseballs out of the yard over his last 29 plate appearances. With an outstanding .947 OPS through 48 games, Duda has turned himself into a must-own fantasy option, even in shallow leagues.  Analysis: Nate Miller

Matt Harvey tossed eight innings during Friday’s 4-3 loss to the Marlins, allowing four earned runs on six hits and a walk while racking up 11 strikeouts.

In a bounce-back effort from this past Saturdays drubbing at the hands of the Pirates, Harvey looked much better while striking out a season-high 11 batters Friday night. Though he ended up taking a loss, the Mets ace was outstanding aside from a three-run fourth inning. Harvey has been tagged for 11 earned runs across his last 12 frames, but also has a 15-to-3 K/BB ratio across that stretch and a stellar 9.6 K/9 for the season. He will climb back atop the mound Thursday night in Arizona.  Analysis: Nate Miller

Justin Bour went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer during Friday’s 4-3 victory versus the Mets.

Bour just continues to produce for the Marlins in recent days. Over the last nine games, the rookie first baseman has hit .323 (10-for-31) with two doubles, three homers and six RBI. Bour should remain as the regular first baseman while Mike Morse (finger) is on the disabled list. Analysis: Nate Miller
