(TSX / STATS) -- The Washington Nationals brought back one ace Saturday, less than 24 hours after placing another on the disabled list.

Right-hander Stephen Strasburg was activated to start Saturday night's game at the San Diego Padres, while fellow right-hander Max Scherzer went on the DL Friday night due to left neck inflammation.

Strasburg (10-3, 3.25 ERA) has been sidelined with a right elbow nerve impingement since pitching two scoreless innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks on July 23. He went on the disabled list four days later.


Umpires unite against verbal abuse

(TSX / STATS) -- DETROIT -- Two of the four umpires working Saturday's Los Angeles-Detroit Major League Baseball game wore white wristbands in support of the umpire association's stand against what it feels is increasing verbal abuse of its members.

"This is in support of major league umpires," crew chief Bill Miller said after the Dodgers beat the Tigers 3-0. "We're directing all questions to our attorney so that everything comes from one mouth."


Granderson debuts with run, Dodgers win

(TSX / STATS) -- DETROIT -- How a popup was handled -- mishandled if you will -- was a graphic illustration in Los Angeles' 3-0 victory on Saturday of why the Dodgers are going strong and the Detroit Tigers are struggling.

Two outs, nobody on in the seventh inning Saturday in a scoreless game. Tigers right-hander Michael Fulmer (10-11) had faced just two batters over the minimum to that point.


Baez, Happ, Quintana lead Cubs past Jays

(TSX / STATS) -- CHICAGO -- Wade Davis has been consistent for months, but manager Joe Maddon thinks the closer has been getting even sharper.

Pirates hit 3 homers, snap 6-game slide

(TSX / STATS) -- PITTSBURGH -- Starling Marte was 3-for-5 with one of three Pittsburgh homers and Chad Kuhl didn't let a long rain delay bother him Saturday as the Pirates broke a six-game losing streak with a 6-4 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals at PNC Park.

The Pirates (59-64) remained 6 1/2 games behind the first-place Chicago Cubs in the National League Central and four back of the Cardinals.


Nerve issue lands Royals RHP Feliz on DL

(TSX / STATS) -- The Kansas City Royals placed right-handed pitcher Neftali Feliz on the disabled list on Saturday because of right ulnar nerve palsy.

His DL stint is retroactive to Aug. 14, making him eligible to return on Aug. 24.


Cubs get C Rivera off waivers from Mets

(TSX / STATS) -- The Chicago Cubs claimed veteran catcher Rene Rivera off waivers from the New York Mets on Saturday to add insurance at the position.

Rivera has played all or part of nine major league seasons with the Seattle Mariners (2004-06), Minnesota Twins (2011), San Diego Padres (2013-14), Tampa Bay Rays (2015) and Mets (2016-17).
