by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson's back injury will keep him out yet again Saturday, as the team announced he will not make his scheduled start against the White Sox.

Gibson has not pitched since July 18 due to this injury, as he was scratched from his previously scheduled outing Wednesday. Logan Darnell will be recalled from Triple-A to make the start, and it is not clear at this point if Gibson will be placed on the disabled list to clear the roster spot.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Marlins optioned pitcher Anthony DeSclafani to Triple-A New Orleans Friday, to open up a spot on the active roster.

DeSclafani was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans last week, but did not appear in any games. He was simply called up to provide a fresh arm in the bullpen, and will likely return to New Orleans' rotation. 

DeSclafani has a 2.82 ERA in 38 1/3 innings at Triple-A, but allowed 20 runs in 24 1/3 innings over five starts with the Marlins.
