• Athletics closer Sean Doolittle was placed on the 15-day disabled list by Oakland about an hour before Sunday's game with the Angels with a strained right intercostal. Doolittle, who saved the past two games against the Angels, is 1-3 with 20 saves and a 2.28 ERA in 54 relief appearances.

• Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz left during an 8-6 loss to the Mariners in the sixth inning, limping to the dugout after fouling a ball off his right foot two innings earlier. Ortiz fouled a ball off his foot in the fourth and was down on the ground for a while before continuing his at-bat and striking out.

• Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano left a game against the Red Sox because of dizziness in the bottom of the third inning. Cano walked off the field with manager Lloyd McClendon and was replaced by Brad Miller.

• Miguel Cabrera did not start for the Tigers after he aggravated a sore right ankle in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader.

• Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez was reinstated from the disabled list after being out with an oblique strain on his right side.

• The Rockies placed outfielder Michael Cuddyer on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring. This has been a frustrating season for Cuddyer, who's making his third trip to the DL this season. The 35-year-old has played in 34 games and is hitting .331.

• The Blue Jays optioned right-hander Kyle Drabek to Triple-A Buffalo to clear a roster spot for right-hander Sergio Santos.
