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.

Francisco Liriano (LHP, MIN) pitched another gem Wednesday night, going 6.2 innings, 1 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, but he did not factor in the decision. Since being re-inserted into the rotation on May 30, Lirano has put together a sparking line: 30.1 IP, 2.67 ERA, 10.5 Dom, and 2.9 Cmd. In addition, all five starts were PQS-DOM ...

After losing Kyle Drabek (RHP, TOR) and Brandon Morrow (RHP, TOR) to injuries this week, the Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison left the June 16th game with a sprained right UCL. Hutchison had just started to find his groove, posting PQS 5-5-3 in his prior 3 starts. Who will get the starts for the injured 60% of TOR's rotation?

With Chris Heisey (OF, CIN) joining Drew Stubbs (OF, CIN) among the hobbled, Wilson Valdez (SS, CIN) made his first career CF start Friday. Starting CF Stubbs has been placed on the DL, retroactive to June 6, with a left oblique strain. Heisey had made eight straight CF starts in Stubbs' absence, but is DTD with a left groin strain that forced him to leave CIN's June 14 game.
