The New York Yankees and Washington Nationals have controlled their respective divisions out East for most of the year, but what about the teams not as fortunate this year? Let's check out the latest from a set of teams in the East that are retooling, rebuilding and/or reeling...
- Miami Marlins outfielder Logan Morrison tells Joe Capozzi of The Palm Beach Post he doesn't expect to return this season. Morrison has been dealing with a right knee injury for some time now, and told Capozzi surgery is "probable".
- David Murphy of The Philadelphia Daily News writes pitcher Adam Morgan, an emerging prospect within the Philadelphia Phillies organization, could be on the fast track to the major leagues. The polished southpaw could be contributing at the big league level sometime next season.
- The Boston Red Sox placed utility infielder Mike Aviles and backup catcher Kelly Shoppach on trade waivers, according to Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe.
