Eli Manning will undergo an arthroscopic procedure on his left ankle on Thursday.

Manning suffered a high-ankle sprain back in December and ended up in a walking boot but was supposed to avoid surgery. The doctors obviously saw something they didn't like and surgery is now in order. Manning will probably miss team OTAs in May but should be back at camp in August with plenty of time to prepare for the upcoming season.ANALYST: Howard Bender

Matt Wieters is not in the Orioles lineup on Tuesday.

A day off for the Catcher who is still working his way back from Tommy John Surgery. He has not been able to catch in back-to-back games save for one time this season. Wieters has also been rumored to be being potentially shopped by Baltimore but nothing has yet to come out of those rumors. Analysis: Matt Selz

Melvin Upton is not in the Padres lineup on Tuesday.

This appears to be a day of rest for the veteran outfielder who has actually, for him, been on a hot streak in his last 15 games hitting .273. Will Venable will lead off and play Center for San Diego with Kemp in Right and Justin Upton in Left batting third and fourth respectively. Analysis: Matt Selz

Red Sox have claimed Jean Machi off waivers from the Giants.

Hoping they can try and turn his season around and in turn bolster their struggling bullpen is behind the Boston move. Machi was DFA'd by San Francisco earlier in the month after posting a 5.14 ERA in 33 appearances this season after being a key part to their World Series Championship run a season ago. Analysis: Matt Selz

Dee Gordon has been activated from the 15-day disabled list.

A dislocated thumb on the last day before the All-Star break kept the speedster not only out of the mid-summer classic but out of the first week and a half of games since. Gordon is back to leading off for the fish as they take on Jordan Zimmermann and the Nationals Tuesday. Gordon is currently on pace for 80+ steals, a feat that hasn't happened in a couple of decades in the majors. Analysis: Matt Selz

Donovan Solano has been placed on paternity list.

First of all congratulations to Solano on the new arrival. Solano will miss a couple of games as he and his family welcome the new addition. The backup infielder has not seen much action this season as Dee Gordon and Martin Prado have locked down second and third respectively for the fish. Analysis: Matt Selz

Nick Hagadone has been transferred to the 60-day disabled list.

Hagadone had surgery to repair one of the worst sounding injuries of the season, a fractured elbow, this past Thursday. The southpaw reliever will be out for 6-9 months and should be fully good to go for spring training. The move to the 60-day DL clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the Indians. Analysis: Matt Selz

Jose Reyes will be in a Rockies uniform for Wednesday's game.

Colorado acquired Reyes in the Tulowitzki trade that happened very late Monday night and so it will take the major pieces involved a day or so to catch-up with their new teams. Reyes should slot right in as the starting Shortstop for the Rox in place of Brandon Barnes who came in for Tulowitzki late in the game Monday. Analysis: Matt Selz

John Jaso is not in the Rays lineup on Tuesday.

It's just a day off for Jaso after playing in every game since the All-Star break. The Rays are facing their former ace in David Price Tuesday night who provides a tough test for left handed batters. Analysis: Matt Selz
