Good morning, baseball fans!

Yan Gomes will be sidelined for the remainder of the season with a wrist injury:

Cleveland is six games up in the AL Central, ahead of the Tigers. Off the bench, they have Roberto Perez, Chris Gimenez and Adam Moore available to catch.

Though they didn’t have control over the situation, in retrospect, Jonathan Lucroy vetoing the trade that would’ve sent him to Cleveland looks worse and worse for the team.

This season, Gomes was hitting .165/.198/.313 in 71 games, but is ranked highly defensively.

Milwaukee will be without Keon Broxton for the rest of the year.

Arizona decided to shut down Rubby De La Rosa:

Having suffered a sprained ulnar collateral ligament, De La Rosa and the D-Backs have proceeded with caution through his rehab, as this particular injury has often served as a precursor to Tommy John surgery.

This is bad news for Philadelphia’s shortstop prospect:

Houston might be without one of its top young infielders:

Tepesch will likely still be under club control:

Another retirement to note:

Big news for Logan Morrison:

St. Louis isn’t done making changes to its pitching staff:

Henderson Alvarez continues to have difficulty remaining healthy:
