Christian Yelich officially day-to-day with oblique injury

"It's day to day," general manager David Stearns said. "He's got a little bit of soreness. These things are going to happen throughout the course of the year. I think whenever you have your first 'ding' of the year it gets a little bit more attention.

"But as we know, over the course of 162 (games) there are going to be a lot of times where guys are going to be down for a couple of days. That's what we anticipate here, and hopefully it progresses quickly and we can get him back out there."

"Rickie is still scary," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "You get people on base, you make a mistake and he's going to hurt you."

• Angry fans in Kansas City, broiled by the 100-degree heat and embarrassed by the team’s continued lack of success, will burn Robinson Cano in effigy for slighting Billy Butler in the Home Run Derby, then go on to occupy the Royals’ headquarters and depose general manager Dayton Moore. Jonathan Sanchez, the return in the Melky Cabrera trade, will be sent to a monastery for his own protection, while Yuniesky Betancourt’s attempt to enter the Federal Witness Program will fail due to his unwillingness to walk 90 feet to an initial meeting point with FBI agents.

Bill Hall, via Twitter Tom Haudricourt has since confirmed the move, but says Hernandez will likely work out of the bullpen, not the rotation. h/t to @TheScottNorman for bringing the Hall tweet to my attention.
