7/6/2015 Jason Frasor, KC, P
The Kansas City Royals designated reliever Jason Frasor for assignment.

Analysis: The 37-year-old Frasor is almost certain to be picked up quickly. The right-hander was 1-0 with a 1.54 ERA in 26 games for the Royals' league-best bullpen. But with almost no options left among the rest of the relief corps, Frasor simply became the odd man out in a numbers game.
7/6/2015 Carlos Correa, Hou, SS
Correa went 3 for 4 with a two-run homer in Sunday's loss to Boston.

Analysis: Correa went 7 for 14 with two homers in the three-game series with the Red Sox, and the rookie is hitting .315 in 25 games since making his major league debut.
7/6/2015 Justin Verlander, Det, P

Harrison was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday with a left thumb injury. Harrison jammed his thumb Sunday while stealing a base in the seventh inning of a win over the Cleveland Indians. He is scheduled to undergo testing to see if there is any structural damage and also to determine a timetable for his return.

7/6/2015 Bryce Harper, Was, RF
Harper won't participate in the All-Star Home Run Derby because his father isn't available to pitch to him.

Analysis: Harper finished second in the 2013 Home Run Derby with his dad as the pitcher. But his father recently underwent shoulder surgery, so Harper said Monday he will skip the event. The outfielder hopes to participate in the future, after his father recovers from the operation.
7/5/2015 Ryan Vogelsong, SF, P
Vogelsong and manager Bruce Bochy were ejected by plate umpire Phil Cuzzi in the fifth inning Sunday night after complaining about the strike zone. For the 37-year-old Vogelsong, who walked three batters in four innings, it was the first ejection of his career.

Analysis: The Giants had shown displeasure with Cuzzi's strike zone several times before Vogelsong's first pitch of the fifth inning to Washington's Denard Span was called a ball. Bochy appeared to say something from the dugout. Cuzzi turned toward Bochy, and Vogelsong soon began walking toward the plate. Cuzzi ejected Vogelsong. Bochy came out to the plate and was soon ejected as well.
