Braves: RHP Jason Grilli suf­fered a left Achilles’ rup­ture in the bot­tom of the ninth in­ning of a 3-2 loss to the Rock­ies, tum­bling to the ground as he ran to­ward first to cover the bag. At­lanta said the re­liever, 38, likely will miss the rest of the sea­son.

In­di­ans: Put IF Mike Aviles on the fam­ily med­i­cal emer­gency list for the sec­ond time this sea­son. Aviles’s 4-year-old daugh­ter, Adri­ana, was di­ag­nosed with leukemia in May and has been un­der­go­ing treat­ment.

Mar­lins: 2B Dee Gor­don has been ruled out of the All-Star Game be­cause of a dis­lo­cated left thumb but says he thinks he avoided se­ri­ous in­jury. Gor­don left Mi­ami’s 14-3 win against Cincinnati in the sev­enth in­ning af­ter he was hurt beat­ing out an in­field hit with a head­first slide. Rock­ies SS Troy Tu­low­itzki will re­place Gor­don on the NL’s ac­tive ros­ter, and Colorado 2B DJ LeMahieu will re­place Gor­don in the start­ing lineup.

Red Sox: Placed RHP Clay Buch­holz on the 15-day dis­abled list with a strained right el­bow he suf­fered in Fri­day’s start. To take his place, the club se­lected LHP Brian John­son, a highly touted prospect, from Class AAA Paw­tucket.
