7/3/2015 Miguel Cabrera, Det, 1B
Cabrera left Friday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays in the fourth inning with an apparent injury to his left leg.

Analysis: Cabrera was on first base with no outs and a 3-2 count to Victor Martinez, and took off with the pitch. Martinez fouled the ball off, but Cabrera pulled up sharply, grabbing his left leg. He was attended to by trainers and limped off the field.
7/3/2015 Dan Straily, Hou, P
The Houston Astros recalled Straily from Triple-A Fresno for their game against the Boston Red Sox.

Analysis: He was Friday night's starting pitcher.
7/3/2015 Blake Swihart, Bos, C
The Red Sox placed Swihart on the 15-day DL with a sprained left foot and selected right-hander Noe Ramirez from Pawtucket.

Analysis: He has no fantasy value.
7/3/2015 Shane Robinson, Min, CF
The Minnesota Twins have placed Robinson on family emergency leave.

7/3/2015 Tom Gorzelanny, Det, P
The Detroit Tigers designated Gorzelanny for assignment.

Analysis: Gorzelanny was brought in as a veteran lefty, but posted a 6.38 ERA in 30 appearances.
7/3/2015 Joba Chamberlain, Det, P
The Detroit Tigers have designated veteran relievers Chamberlain and Tom Gorzelanny for assignment and activated catcher Alex Avila off the disabled list.

Analysis: Chamberlain struggled all season as Joakim Soria's set-up man. In his last seven games, including six Tigers losses, he had a 14.40 ERA and allowed opponents to post a .444 batting average with four homers in five innings.
7/3/2015 Alex Rodriguez, NYY, 3B
Rodriguez and the Yankees settled their dispute over a marketing payment with a deal announced Friday that gives $3.5 million to charitable groups, saves the team $5.5 million and gets A-Rod the home run ball from his 3,000th hit.

Analysis: Under the deal, the Yankees will split $1 million among the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, the Boys & Girls Club of Tampa and Pitch In For Baseball. Zach Hample, the superfan who retrieved Rodriguez's 3,000th hit at Yankee Stadium on June 19, supports Pitch In For Baseball, which says its mission is to assist children around the world through baseball. The charity was to receive $150,000, he said.
7/3/2015 Corey Knebel, Mil, P
Knebel has been optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Analysis: Knebel had no record and a 2.95 ERA in 19 games for Milwaukee this season.

Rogers has been optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Analysis: Rogers hit .236 with two home runs and seven RBIs in 51 games.
7/3/2015 David Goforth, Mil, P
The Milwaukee Brewers beefed up their bullpen on Friday, recalling rookie right-handers David Goforth and Tyler Cravy from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Analysis: Goforth was with Milwaukee from May 26 through June 9 and had no record in four scoreless appearances, including his major-league debut on May 26.
7/3/2015 Tyler Cravy, Mil, P
The Milwaukee Brewers beefed up their bullpen on Friday, recalling rookie right-handers Tyler Cravy and David Goforth from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Analysis: Cravy was up for the first two days of June and made his major-league debut on June 2, getting the decision in a 1-0 loss at St. Louis.
7/3/2015 Chris Young, KC, P
Young was a tough-luck loser Thursday night, though he uncorked a ridiculous three wild pitches.

Analysis: Young dodged trouble for most of 5 1/3 innings, the only run he allowed coming on a triple by Danny Santana in the fifth. The big, lanky right-hander turned over a 1-0 deficit to the game's best bullpen, but his offense was unable to help him out.
7/3/2015 Kyle Gibson, Min, P
Gibson made the AL champions look foolish Thursday night.

Analysis: Gibson allowed four hits in eight scoreless innings while throwing 114 pitches. He has won two in a row after three straight defeats.
7/3/2015 Glen Perkins, Min, P
Perkins kept the good times rolling Thursday.

Analysis: Perkins remained perfect in 26 save attempts, and needs two more saves to match bullpen coach Eddie Guardado (116) for third-most in franchise history. "He's just on a really good roll," manager Paul Molitor said.
7/3/2015 Joe Mauer, Min, 1B
Mauer was 2 for 4 with an RBI on Thursday.

Analysis: Mauer is fairly useless to owners these days at .266/.335/.371.
7/3/2015 Danny Santana, Min, SS
Santana was 2 for 4 with an RBI on Thursday.

Analysis: Santana also hurt his owners when he was caught stealing for the fourth time.
7/3/2015 Eduardo Escobar, Min, LF
Escobar was 2 for 3 with a triple and a sac bunt on Thursday.

Analysis: Escobar is hitting .409 in his last eight games.
7/3/2015 David Lough, Bal, LF
Lough was 2 for 3 on Thursday.

Analysis: Lough is a spare outfielder who rarely plays and has little ability.
7/3/2015 Yovani Gallardo, Tex, P
Gallardo maintained his brilliant form Thursday.

Analysis: Gallardo gave up two hits and three walks over six innings to extend his run of shutout innings to 29 1-3 - the longest streak in the majors this year and fourth-longest in franchise history. Gallardo has not allowed a home run in 51 1-3 innings, dating back to May 24. In nine starts following a Texas loss, the right-hander is 6-0 with a 0.79 ERA.
7/3/2015 Kevin Gausman, Bal, P
Gausman could be worth picking up based on his latest effort.

Analysis: Gausman allowed four hits, walked two and struck out seven in 6 1-3 scoreless innings Thursday. He was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk for his second start of the season.
