ORIOLES: Baltimore activated outfielder Adam Jones from the 15-day disabled list and recalled pitcher Garrett Olson in time to start against the Boston Red Sox. Jones, sidelined with a broken left foot since August 3rd, paid immediate dividends to the club by homering off Paul Byrd on the first pitch he saw in the opening inning. It cleared the seats above the Green Monster. Olson (8-6), making his 22nd start of the season, was optioned to Class AAA Norfolk on August 20th.

RANGERS: Texas recalled catcher Taylor Teagarden and infielder German Duran. Teagarden played two games with the Rangers in July and hit one homer in six at-bats. Duran batted .225 with three home runs and 11 RBIs in 43 games with Texas before being optioned to Oklahoma on July 20.

WHITE SOX: Reliever Scott Linebrink was activated from the 15-day disabled list by Chicago. Linebrink had been on the DL since July 26 with inflammation in his shoulder. The right-hander was 2-2 with a 2.31 ERA and one save in 42 outings. In addition, the White Sox recalled outfielder Jerry Owens and right-handers Mike MacDougal and Ehren Wasserman from Class AAA Charlotte.

ASTROS: The son of Roger Clemens and two other minor league teammates were arrested early Sunday and briefly jailed after a disturbance at a restaurant in Salem, Va. In a news release, police said Koby Clemens, Mark Ori and Jimmy Goethals were arrested after police were called to the parking lot of a restaurant. Clemens and Ori were charged with disorderly conduct. Goethals was charged with assault and battery.

BRAVES: Atlanta activated infielder Ruben Gotay from the disabled list and reinstated first baseman Casey Kotchman from bereavement leave. Gotay went on the 15-day DL on Aug. 17 with a strained left hamstring. He was batting .225 with 20 hits in 89 at-bats in 73 games this season. Kotchman left on Aug. 20 to be with his ill mother, who remains in intensive care at a Florida hospital.

BREWERS: One day after CC Sabathia pitched a controversial one-hitter against Pittsburgh, Milwaukee’s general manager said he may lobby to have changes made to the way official scoring decisions are made. Doug Melvin said he thought there should be a committee to decide scoring decisions like the one that may have cost Sabathia a no-hitter in the Brewers’ 7-0 victory over the Pirates on Sunday. One official scorer is used in all baseball games until the World Series, where a three-person panel reviews scoring plays.

Brewers pitcher Ben Sheets was removed from the team’s game against the New York Mets Monday after five innings with “very, very slight” tightness in his left groin. Sheets said it first tightened while he was warming up for the third inning, and manager Ned Yost removed him as a precautionary measure.

DODGERS: Los Angeles activated outfielders Andruw Jones and Delwyn Young from the 15-day disabled list and reinstated right-handed reliever Scott Proctor from the 60-day DL. Jones missed 21 games after being placed on the DL on Aug. 12 because of tendinitis in his left knee. He was hitting .161 with three homers and 14 RBI in 74 games. Young missed 36 games with a right oblique strain and Proctor missed 61 games with right elbow tendinitis.

GIANTS: San Francisco activated left-handed starter Jonathan Sanchez from the 15-day disabled list. Sanchez was placed on the DL on Aug. 16 with a left shoulder strain. He was 8-9 with a 4.53 ERA and 133 strikeouts in 135 innings this season.

MARLINS: Florida activated pitcher Andrew Miller and outfielder Brett Carroll from the disabled list. Miller was 1-0 with a 2.33 ERA and 17 strikeouts in 191/3 innings in six rehab games. He gave up five earned runs, allowing 14 hits and four walks. The left-hander went on the 15-day DL on July 18 with tendinitis in his right knee. Carroll had been on the 60-day DL with a right shoulder sprain.

PHILLIES: Philadelphia recalled pitcher Adam Eaton from Class AAA Lehigh Valley. The right-handed Eaton, a Snohomish High School alum, was 4-8 with a 5.80 ERA in 19 starts with Philadelphia before being sent to the minors on July 28.

ROCKIES: Colorado activated outfielder Ryan Spilborghs from the 15-day disabled list. Spilborghs was placed on the disabled list on July 9 with a left oblique strain. Before his injury, Spilborghs was hitting .314 with six home runs and 33 RBIs in 72 games.
