Jeff Samardzija was forced out of the game in the third inning on Sunday after surrendering eight runs on eight hits and two walks against the Brewers on Sunday.
After allowing just 14 earned runs over his first 11 starts, Samardzija coughed up eight runs on Sunday lasting just three innings before getting the boot. He now falls to 1-5 on the year, but is still the proud owner of a 2.54 ERA and 1.15 WHIP over 78.0 innings. As long has be can continue to limit his home runs allowed ( 4 HR) and keep his walks down (23 BB), there is no reason to think his hot start will be coming to an end. The Cubs ace will look to get back on track when he takes on the Marlins on Saturday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Kevin White has a shin injury and will start on the PUP list.
With this minor injury, White will be starting training camp on the sidelines to work up his cardio and get in better shape. It doesn't look like this injury will deter him from starting in Week 1, and it could give him some extra time to learn from the sidelines during camp. White is one of the most talented rookie receivers in the league, and if he lives up to his potential he could be in the running for Offensive Rookie of the Year. Analysis: Zack Carpenter
Blue Jays designated Felix Doubront for assignment.
This is a move to make room for Troy Tulowitzki, and Doubront was the obvious choice to go. The lefty only had one good start in his five outings with the big league club (all in July). Since that July 7 start, he's given up 13 runs on 23 hits. The last straw was last night's poor outing in which he gave up three runs and couldn't give anything more than four innings. Doubront will look to latch on with another club, but he won't be of much fantasy value wherever he winds up. Analysis: Zack Carpenter
