7/28/2015 Mookie Betts, Bos, CF
Betts was injured in the sixth inning when he tumbled into Boston's bullpen while attempting to catch a drive by Jose Abreu of the Chicago White Sox that went for a home run Tuesday.

Analysis: Betts was initially credited with catching the ball while twisting his body and hitting the wall with his lower back, then flipping over and landing in the bullpen.

7/28/2015 Justin Turner, LAD, 3B
Turner has gone to an emergency room after a pimple on his leg turned into an infection, the club says.

Analysis: Turner was scratched from the Dodgers' lineup against Oakland on Tuesday night. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly says Turner felt the problem on his inner right thigh Sunday in New York. He was given antibiotics, but it didn't heal up on the team's day off Monday. The team doesn't know how long Turner will be out. He has been the Dodgers' most consistent offensive contributor this season, batting .323 with 13 homers and 44 RBIs.
7/28/2015 David Carpenter, Atl, P
The Braves have promoted Carpenter from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Analysis: At Gwinnett, Carpenter had a 0.71 ERA.

Analysis: Banuelos was acquired by the Braves in a trade with the Yankees last January. He made his big league debut on July 2 and was 1-2 with a 2.49 ERA in five games, four of them starts.
7/28/2015 David Murphy, LAA, LF
The Cleveland Indians have traded Murphy to the Los Angeles Angels for minor league shortstop Eric Stamets.

Analysis: Murphy's batting .296 with five homers and 27 RBIs in 84 games for the disappointing Indians, who have lost five straight and fallen into last place in the AL Central.
7/28/2015 Devon Travis, Tor, 2B
Travis left Tuesday night's game against Philadelphia after two innings with a sore left shoulder.

Analysis: Travis missed 36 games earlier this season after he injured his left shoulder when he was hit by a bad hop grounder in an April 30 game at Cleveland. The injury affected his swing, causing him to bat .189 in 53 at-bats in May after batting .325 in April, when he was named AL Rookie of the Month. Danny Valencia moved from left field to second base, with Ezequiel Carrera coming on to play left.
7/28/2015 David DeJesus, LAA, LF
The Los Angeles Angels have acquired DeJesus from the Tampa Bay Rays in exchange for minor league pitcher Eduar Lopez.

Analysis: The 35-year-old DeJesus is hitting .259 with five homers and 26 RBIs this season. He has hit .276 with 99 homers and 569 RBIs in his 13-year career with Kansas City, Oakland, the Chicago Cubs, Washington and Tampa Bay.
7/28/2015 Cole Hamels, Phi, P
Hamels is being pushed back one day in Philadelphia's starting rotation and is not scheduled to start for the Phillies again until after Friday's trade deadline has passed.

Analysis: Hamels threw a season-high 129 pitches in Sunday's no-hitter over the Cubs at Wrigley Field. He is 6-7 with a 3.64 ERA in 20 starts. The decision gives Hamels an extra day of rest, and prevents him from getting hurt before Friday's 4 p.m. deadline to trade players without securing waivers.

The Cubs have recalled Beeler from Triple-A Iowa to start Tuesday night against the Colorado Rockies.

7/28/2015 Kolten Wong, StL, 2B
Wong hit a grand slam that backed Lance Lynn's seven resourceful innings and led the St. Louis Cardinals over the Cincinnati Reds 4-1 Monday night.

Analysis: Wong is 8 for 20 in his last five games.
7/28/2015 Carlos Gonzalez, Col, RF

Analysis: Eaton is 5 for 8 in two games, and his .255 average is higher than it's been all season.
7/28/2015 Mike Trout, LAA, CF
Trout was out of the starting lineup on Tuesday against the Houston Astros because of an injured left wrist.

Analysis: The All-Star center fielder was hurt attempting to make a diving catch in the fourth inning on Sunday but stayed in the game and later hit a grand slam.
7/28/2015 Mark Trumbo, Sea, RF

The Mariners hope Cano can stay hot after he went 2 for 3 with his 11th home run in Monday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Analysis: Cano has hit .410 with five homers and 12 RBIs over his last 10 games. He appears to be getting back to his career numbers after a slow start and should be in your lineup.
7/28/2015 Paul Goldschmidt, Ari, 1B

Analysis: Goldschmidt has gone 11 for 25 (.440) during a nine-game hitting streak.
