DODGERS: Carl Crawford was scratched from the lineup after going to the hospital to check out a high temperature and a fever.

Skip Schumaker started in Crawford’s place.

“He was feeling a little iffy yesterday, having some fever,” manager Don Mattingly said. “He kind of played through it.”

YANKEES: Shortstop Derek Jeter passed one final test of his strained right quadriceps Saturday, playing a simulated game at a location the team kept secret until after they lost 1-0 to the Tampa Bay Rays.

Jeter was at the home of the Staten Island Yankees a little more than 12 miles from the Bronx. If he’s feeling well, manager Joe Girardi said Jeter will start at today.

RANGERS: Pitcher Tanner Scheppers sustained facial bruises after being attacked while walking in downtown Cleveland this week.

Scheppers suffered a bruised eye and contusion Thursday night. The team said the incident occurred a few blocks from the team’s hotel.

ANGELS: Albert Pujols returned to Los Angeles on Saturday morning for further testing on his sore left foot. He has been dealing with plantar fasciitis all season and re-injured his foot running to first Friday night.

PHILLIES: With the trade deadline approaching next week, the Phillies are struggling to stay in playoff contention, and they have a few veterans contenders might want – like closer Jonathan Papelbon and left-hander Cliff Lee. But assistant general manager Scott Proefrock indicated the Phillies still haven’t figured out how they want to approach this year’s deadline.

ROCKIES: Recalled right-hander Collin McHugh from Triple-A Colorado Springs and optioned righty Mitchell Boggs to the minors.
