Analysis: Soto is 4 for 11 in three games this season.
7/21/2014 Boone Logan, P (Col) Logan was placed on the 15-day disabled list with diverticulitis, a condition in which the inner lining of the intestine becomes inflamed or infected.

Analysis: Nick Masset (strained left patellar tendon) was reinstated from the DL to take Logan's place in the bullpen.
7/21/2014 Dan Uggla, 2B (SF) The San Francisco Giants have signed Uggla to a minor league contract. Uggla was released last Friday by the Braves after hitting just .162 and losing his starting job.

Analysis: The Giants haven't had much production from their second basemen this season. They're hoping a change in scenery helps Uggla.
7/21/2014 Asdrubal Cabrera, SS (Cle) Cabrera has left the game with the Minnesota Twins because of lower back spasms.

Analysis: Cabrera played two innings Monday night before being taken out. There was no word from the team on exactly how he was injured.
7/21/2014 Erasmo Ramirez, P (Sea) The Seattle Mariners are giving starters Hisashi Iwakuma and Felix Hernandez an extra day of rest and will start Ramirez on Tuesday against the New York Mets.

Analysis: Seattle will need to make a roster move for Ramirez, who has made 11 starts with a 1-4 record and 4.58 ERA for the Mariners this season.
7/21/2014 Felix Hernandez, P (Sea) The Seattle Mariners are giving starters Hisashi Iwakuma and Hernandez an extra day of rest and will start Erasmo Ramirez on Tuesday against the New York Mets.

Analysis: Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon said Monday that he will give the main arms in his pitching staff extra rest when he can. Hernandez has pitched 12 straight starts going at least seven innings and giving up two earned runs or less. It's the longest streak in the American League since 1970.
7/21/2014 Hisashi Iwakuma, P (Sea) The Seattle Mariners are giving Iwakuma and Felix Hernandez an extra day of rest and will start Erasmo Ramirez on Tuesday against the New York Mets.

Analysis: Iwakuma will throw Thursday against Baltimore and Hernandez will face the Orioles on Friday.
7/21/2014 Eric Hosmer, 1B (KC) Hosmer has been scratched from the Kansas City Royals' lineup against the Chicago White Sox with a bruised right hand.

Analysis: Hosmer was hit on the hand by a pitch from Boston's Jon Lester on Sunday at Fenway Park. The first baseman was in the original lineup Monday night batting third, but was removed about an hour before game time.
7/21/2014 Jeremy Jeffress, P (Mil) The Milwaukee Brewers have called up Jeffress from Triple-A Nashville to give the bullpen a boost.

Analysis: Jeffress joined the team before Monday night's game against the Cincinnati Reds. He was 4-1 with a 1.51 ERA and five saves in the minors.
7/21/2014 T.J. House, P (Cle) The Cleveland Indians have optioned right-handed reliever Austin Adams to Triple-A Columbus, making room on the roster for House.

Analysis: House was officially recalled Monday from Class A Mahoning Valley to make the start in Minnesota, where the Indians arrived for a three-game series. The rookie made nine starts earlier this season before being sent to the minors prior to the All-Star break.
7/21/2014 Austin Adams, P (Cle) The Cleveland Indians have optioned Adams to Triple-A Columbus, making room on the roster for left-hander T.J. House.

Analysis: Adams was recalled from Columbus July 11 and made only two appearances.
7/21/2014 Justin Morneau, 1B (Col) The Colorado Rockies placed Morneau on the 15-day disabled list with a strained neck.

7/21/2014 Sergio Santos, P (Tor) Santos was cut Monday by the Toronto Blue Jays, who owe the reliever more than $2 million.

Analysis: Santos, 0-2 with a 7.78 ERA and five saves, was designated for assignment and placed on waivers. Unless he's claimed by another team, the Blue Jays are responsible for $1,290,984 still owed to Santos this season and a $750,000 option buyout for 2015.
7/21/2014 Mark Teixeira, 1B (NYY) Teixeira is going to be sidelined for at least three to four games because of a strained muscle in his back. Teixeira says he has been hampered by a left lower lat injury that was causing spasms in his back for about a month. The pain escalated during New York's weekend sweep of the Cincinnati Reds immediately following the All-Star break.

Analysis: Teixeira has already missed time this season because of hamstring, back, knee and wrist problems. But he still leads the Yankees with 17 homers and 48 RBIs in 76 games. He is hitless in his last 13 at-bats.
7/21/2014 Hiroki Kuroda, P (NYY) Kuroda did not get a decision Sunday.

Analysis: Kuroda gave up three hits and no earned runs over 6 2-3 innings in his 200th major league appearance. "He was great," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "Did a wonderful job today."
7/21/2014 Johnny Cueto, P (Cin) Cueto needed 112 pitches to last five innings Sunday, matching his shortest start this season.

Analysis: Cueto struck out seven and allowed two runs. He faces the Nats next time.
7/21/2014 Jacoby Ellsbury, CF (NYY) Ellsbury reached safely all five times up Sunday, going 4 for 4 with two steals.

Analysis: Ellsbury went 6 for 12 in the series and should have success Monday against Texas no-name starter Miles Mikolas.
7/21/2014 Casey McGehee, 3B (Mia) McGehee had two hits Sunday to hike his average to .322.

Analysis: McGehee came in with 118 hits and 54 RBIs, and his two-run homer in the first inning was his first since May 10.
7/21/2014 Brad Hand, P (Mia) Hand gave the Marlins' shaky rotation a welcome boost by pitching seven innings to match a career high, and he allowed two runs Sunday.

Analysis: Hand earned his first victory as a starter since 2011. The left-hander had been 1-12 previously as a starter. Hand allowed six hits and one walk. He has a 3.22 ERA in four starts since rejoining the rotation.
