In Arizona and Seattle, the reason is injury. In Baltimore, simple ineffectiveness. The net effect is the same: A door is opening for a new pitcher to join a starting rotation. Who will attempt to fill the voids, and what are their chances of success?

Jim Thome returns to the AL to provide some thump for BAL. There are also some surprising contributors in TAM and MIA and a new starting catcher in SD as well as some new injuries to keep an eye on.

Bud Norris (RHP, HOU), out since leaving his June 12 start with a left knee sprain, returned to the starting rotation Friday. Rookie reliever Xavier Cedeno (LHP, HOU) returned to Triple-A to make room, while Norris' rotation replacement, Dallas Keuchel (RHP, HOU), sticks with the team, though it's unclear if he will remain in the rotation.

Oft-injured Shaun Marcum (RHP, MIL) has once again lived up to his "F" health grade, hitting the 15-day DL with right elbow tightness, retroactive to June 15. This marks the fourth time in the past five seasons that Marcum has succumbed to injury—including Tommy John surgery which erased his entire 2009—and it's worth noting that Marcum's last DL stint in 2010 was also a result of right elbow inflammation. While there's no indication of any major issues, the Brewers plan to shut him down for at least a week to recover.

Jon Jay (OF, STL) and Matt Carpenter (1B/OF, STL) returned to the lineup Friday. STL optioned replacements Matt Adams (1B, STL) and Adron Chambers (OF, STL) to Triple-A. Jay missed six weeks with a right shoulder injury, while an oblique strain sidelined Carpenter for a month. Jay returns as the regular CF, while Carpenter returns to a utility role, though he started at 1B Friday, with Allen Craig (1B/OF, STL) as DH.
