Francisco Rodriguez earned his major league-leading 37th save after tossing a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout to close out the Brewers' 6-3 win over the Dodgers on Friday.

K-Rod needed just 11 pitches to cruise through the Dodgers lineup in the ninth inning and joined Royals closer Greg Holland for the league lead saves. He's now sitting on a 2.73 ERA, a 0.93 WHIP and an impressive 64:12 K:BB over 56 innings this season. Not too bad for a 32-year old waiver wire pick-up, amirite?ANALYST: Howard Bender

Nick Hundley is not in the Rockies starting lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader.

Hundley is just getting the afternoon off. We will see Michael McKenry behind the plate this afternoon to catch for Jorge De La Rosa. Butler. He will bat sixth against the Dodgers Juan Nicasio. He should be in the lineup for the night cap.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Jordan Lyles left foot is in a walking boot. No word yet if he needs surgery or not.

The Rockies had schedule Jordan Lyles to visit with a foot special on Tuesday to see if surgery is necessary to repair a torn ligament in his left big toe. He has been placed on the 15-day DL but if surgery is required than it could be a substantial absence from the team. Lyles currently owns a 5.14 ERA in 10 starts this season. Analysis: Drew Phelps

Dodgers placed Scott Van Slyke (back) on the 15-day disabled list.

Van Slyke has been dealing with mid-back inflammation over the past week and the team wanted to give him an extended break. Chris Heisy was recalled to take his place on the active roster. This move is retroactive to May 31st.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Corey Dickerson (foot) ran the bases and worked out in the outfield Monday.

Dickerson is dealing with plantar fascitis in his left foot which caused him to be placed on the disabled list two weeks ago. This has lingered with him throughout the season. It's nice to see him running the bases but there is still no timetable for his return to the lineup. Dickerson was hitting .306/.342/.523 with five homers over 33 games before landing on the DL.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Doug Fister (forearm) plans to throw another bullpen session within the next few days.

We saw Fister throw off a mound for the first time on Monday since being diagnosed with a flexor tendon strain over two weeks ago. The Nationals will bring Fister along slowly, and there is no timetable for his return. He probably can't be counted on to contribute much before the All-Star break. Analysis: Drew Phelps

Jimmy Rollins is not in the Dodgers starting lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader.

This season has been a struggle for Jimmy Rollins. He's batting barely over .200 for the season. We will see Enrique Hernandez get the start at shortstop in Game 1 of the doubleheader. We should see Rollins play in the second game.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Andre Ethier is not in the Dodgers starting lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader.

The Dodgers will give Andre Ethier the afternoon off against the lefty Jorge De La Rosa. It might seem strange to sit down the red-hot Ethier but he'll likely play in the night cap. The recently recalled Chris Heisey will start in right field while Alex Guerrero plays left. Analysis: Drew Phelps

Dodgers top prospect Corey Seager had a good month at Triple-A Oklahoma City, and is making a case to replace SS Jimmy Rollins.

It took a little adjusting but Seager has been on fire at the Triple-A level recently. He's batting .722 (13-for-18)/.750/1.444 with seven extra-base hits (three home runs) and 10 RBI in last four games. This hot streak has pumped up the top prospect's season averages to .346/.385/.571 with eight home runs and 12 doubles over 45 games between Double-A Tulsa and Oklahoma City. The problem for Seager owners is that the Dodgers have no need to rush him to the big league level, especially after the official signing of Hector Olivera.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Troy Tulowitzki is not in the Rockies starting lineup for the first game of Tuesday's double header.

This is just an afternoon off for Tulowitzki. We will see Daniel Descalso get the start at shortstop in the first game of their doubleheader. You should expect Tulowitzki to play in the nightcap.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

The Blue Jays will bring catcher Dioner Navarro off the disabled list prior to the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals, manager John Gibbons said.

It's been a long road for Navarro but after over five weeks of rehabbing his strained hamstring, he'll return to the Blue Jays lineup. It looks like Jose Bautista's shoulder improved enough to give him the ability to play in the outfield which would allow Navarro to start in the designated hitter spot. Analysis: Drew Phelps

Doug Fister was feeling good Tuesday after throwing 20 fastballs during a bullpen session Monday.

This was the first time we've seen Fister throw off a mound since being diagnosed with a flexor tendon strain over two weeks ago. The Nationals plan on bringing Fister along slowly, and there is no no timetable for his return. He probably can't be counted on to contribute much before the All-Star break.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Rays DH John Jaso (wrist) began swinging a bat over the weekend.

Jaso has taken another step forward in his rehab, but is still pretty far-off from returning just yet. There's still no timetable set for his eventual return, but he'll hopefully move to hitting off a tee soon. From there, though, he is still likely to have power struggles given the nature of his wrist injury.  Analysis: Howard Bender

Athletics optioned Angel Castro to Triple-A Nashville.

With the return of Eric O'Flaherty, Castro is the expendable arm out of the bullpen right now and will head back to the minors. He could get a call-up later down the road, but there's no reason for fantasy owners to be concerned. Analysis: Howard Bender
