Around the horn

Beaten fan has movement: The family of the San Francisco Giants fan who was severely beaten outside Dodger Stadium says he can slightly lift his arm and leg and respond to some directions. Bryan Stow suffered brain injuries when he was attacked after the Dodgers' home opener in late March.

Minnesota Twins: Justin Morneau will rejoin the team Friday when it opens a three-game series in Cleveland. The star first baseman has not played in a game since June 9, when he went on the disabled list to have surgery to repair a pinched nerve in his neck.
