Hector Sanchez to be re-evaluated in three weeks
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Giants catcher Hector Sanchez said Wednesday that he'll be re-evaluated by a doctor in three weeks, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Sanchez will join the team for home games and continue exercising as he continues to recover from multiple concussions. With a re-evaluation unlikely until mid-September, it's becoming less and less likely he'll be back before the end of the regular season.

Astros still 'highly unlikely' to sign Brady Aiken
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

It's still "highly unlikely" that the Astros sign top pick Brady Aiken, according to the Houston Chronicle

A recent report emerged that the two sides could still come to an agreement on a deal. The deadline to sign draft picks was actually July 18, but may have been extended in this case due to a clause proposed by Major League Baseball. Commissioner Bud Selig made some comments Wednesday hinting at a "hopeful solution," but it's unclear if that extends to Aiken. The Astros had similar signing issues with fifth-rounder Jacob Nix. Nix has filed a grievance against the club, which may allow him to sign after the deadline.
