• CT scans on Marlins reliever Dan Jennings were negative Thursday night after he was struck in the head by a line drive off Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer's bat. Jennings suffered a concussion. Jennings tweeted: “Pirates fans showed amazing support tonight. ... Marlins fans supporting too.”

• The Cubs' waiver claim for Phillies left-hander Cole Hamels didn't result in a trade, and the Phillies pulled Hamels back from waivers. A major league source said that Cubs took a longshot chance in making the claim for Hamels, but the Phillies weren't going to deal Hamels without getting at least two top prospects in return. The Cubs acquired right-hander Jacob Turner from the Marlins in exchange for minor league right-handers Jose Arias and Tyler Bremer.

• The Dodgers placed Josh Beckett (hip impingement) on the 15-day disabled list for the third time this season. Beckett is 6-6 with a 2.88 ERA.

• Mark Teixeira was out of the Yankees lineup for a second straight game after getting spiked on the left hand in a play at home plate Wednesday.

• The Cardinals placed right-handed reliever Jason Motte (lower back sprain) on the 15-day disabled list.

• The Giants placed first baseman Brandon Belt back on the seven-day concussion list. Belt missed 12 games with a concussion before being activated Aug. 2.

• Mariners utility player Willie Bloomquist will miss the rest of the season after undergoing microfracture surgery on his right knee.
