Date Player
7/21/2017 Ryan Braun, Mil, LF
Braun (calf/wrist) will remain out of the Brewers' lineup for Friday's game at Philadelphia.

Analysis: It's the third straight day in which the brittle outfielder hasn't started, though he did make a pinch-hitting appearance last night. At this point, it's more newsworthy when Braun actually does play.
7/21/2017 Boone Logan, Cle, P
Logan has been placed on the 10-day disabled with a strained left lat muscle.

Analysis: Lat injuries can take a while to fully recover from, so it's possible Logan won't be back before September. He hasn't been anything special this season anyway, having posted a 4.71 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 38 appearances.
7/21/2017 Yadier Molina, StL, C
Molina was scratched from the Cardinals' lineup for Friday's game at the Cubs due to a sore right ankle.

Analysis: Molina left Wednesday's game against the Mets in the fourth inning and was also held out of Thursday's contest with the injury. The Cardinals promoted prospect Carson Kelly from Triple-A Memphis before Friday's matchup, and it will be interesting to see if the move affects Molina's playing time going forward.
7/21/2017 Marco Gonzales, Sea, P
The Mariners have acquired Gonzales from the Cardinals in exchange for outfield prospect Tyler O'Neill.

Analysis: A first-round pick of St. Louis in 2013, Gonzales had been considered one of the organization's best pitching prospects prior to undergoing Tommy John surgery and missing all of last season. The 25-year-old has returned to go 6-4 with a 2.90 ERA in 11 starts with Triple-A Memphis. The Mariners may immediately slot him into a rotation that's still without two key members in Hisashi Iwakuma and Drew Smyly.
7/21/2017 Chris Carter, Oak, 1B
The A's have signed Carter to a minor-league contract.

Analysis: The 2016 NL co-home run leader will at first report to Triple-A Nashville, though he could eventually be an option at first base should Oakland trade Yonder Alonso at the upcoming deadline. Carter smacked 41 homers for the Brewers in 2016 but produced just eight along with a .201 average in 184 at-bats with the Yankees this year. He was released by New York earlier this month.
7/21/2017 Zach Duke, StL, P
The Cardinals reinstated Duke from the 60-day disabled list prior to Friday's game against the Cubs.

Analysis: The veteran reliever has made an impressive recovery from Tommy John surgery, returning just nine months after having the procedure done in October. Duke should give the bullpen a needed lift if he's able to recapture his 2016 form, when he posted a 2.36 ERA and held opposing hitters to a .217 average over 81 appearances with the Cardinals and White Sox.
7/21/2017 Kurt Suzuki, Atl, C
Suzuki has left the Braves to travel to Hawaii for his grandfather's funeral and has been placed on the bereavement list.

Analysis: Suzuki, who went 2 for 4 with a two-run homer in Atlanta's win over the Dodgers on Thursday, will miss the remaining three games of the series. Anthony Recker has been called up from Triple-A Gwinnett to serve as Tyler Flowers' backup at catcher.
7/21/2017 Felix Hernandez, Sea, P
Felix Hernandez fell to 5-4, allowing one run on three hits and two walks in 7.0 innings, as the Seattle Mariners lost to the New York Yankees 4-1 on Thursday. Hernandez struck out nine, ending the game with a 3.88 ERA and 1.36 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Despite allowing a home run to Brett Gardner and the defeat, Hernandez has yielded two earned runs over 18 innings of his last three starts.
7/21/2017 Luis Severino, NYY, P
Severino improved to 6-4, allowing eight hits and one walk over 7.0 scoreless innings, as the New York Yankees defeated the Seattle Mariners 4-1 on Thursday. Severino struck out six, ending the game with a 3.21 ERA and 1.11 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: He's yielded one run over 14 innings of his last two starts.
7/21/2017 Matt Holliday, NYY, LF
Holliday went 0 for 4 Thursday as the New York Yankees beat the Seattle Mariners 4-1. He ended the game with a .242 batting average.

Analysis: He's 3 for 43 over a 10-game stretch.
7/21/2017 Gary Sánchez, NYY, C
Gary Sanchez went 0 for 3 Thursday as the New York Yankees topped the Seattle Mariners 4-1. He ended the game with a .271 batting average.
7/21/2017 Jean Segura, Sea, SS
Jean Segura went 1 for 5 Thursday as the Seattle Mariners lost to the New York Yankees 4-1. He ended the game with a .344 batting average.
7/21/2017 Nelson Cruz, Sea, RF
Cruz went 1 for 5 Thursday as the Seattle Mariners lost to the New York Yankees 4-1. He ended the game with a .283 batting average.

Analysis: He's 1 for 13 in the last three games.
7/21/2017 Aroldis Chapman, NYY, P
Aroldis Chapman allowed one run on one hit and one walk in 1.0 inning as the New York Yankees defeated the Seattle Mariners 4-1 on Thursday. Chapman struck out two, ending the game with a 3.65 ERA and 1.46 WHIP on the season.
7/21/2017 Jacoby Ellsbury, NYY, CF
Jacoby Ellsbury went 0 for 4 Thursday as the New York Yankees beat the Seattle Mariners 4-1. He ended the game with a .249 batting average.
7/21/2017 Guillermo Heredia, Sea, LF
Guillermo Heredia went 0 for 0 Thursday as the Seattle Mariners lost to the New York Yankees 4-1. Heredia scored once. He ended the game with a .269 batting average.
7/21/2017 Todd Frazier, NYY, 3B
Frazier went 1 for 4 Thursday as the New York Yankees beat the Seattle Mariners 4-1. Frazier scored once. He ended the game with a .207 batting average.

Analysis: He is 1 for 5 in two games with the Yankees.
7/21/2017 Robinson Canó, Sea, 2B
Cano went 3 for 5 with a double and an RBI Thursday as the Seattle Mariners lost to the New York Yankees 4-1. He ended the game with a .271 batting average.

Analysis: He had one hit over his previous five games.
7/21/2017 Didi Gregorius, NYY, SS
Gregorius went 2 for 3 with a double Thursday as the New York Yankees beat the Seattle Mariners 4-1. Gregorius scored once. He ended the game with a .295 batting average.

Analysis: He is 10 for 26 over his last seven games.
7/21/2017 Kyle Crick, SF, P
Kyle Crick allowed one hit and one walk without giving up a run in 1.2 innings as the San Francisco Giants lost to the San Diego Padres 5-2 on Thursday. Crick struck out one, ending the game with a 2.61 ERA and 0.97 WHIP on the season.
