  • Angels designate Marc Krauss for assignment
    Angels designated 1B Marc Krauss for assignment.

    Advice: Krauss hit just .143/.211/.286 during his brief time with the Angels before he was sent down in favor or Kirk Nieuwenhuis. He could attract some interest on waivers.

  • Indians call up Jerry Sands from Triple-A
    Indians purchased the contract of OF Jerry Sands from Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: Sands was called back up from Triple-A with Carlos Santana going on the paternity leave list. The 27-year-old went 8-for-23 (.348) with two doubles and four RBI over nine games with the Indians earlier this season. He'll provide some bench depth over the next couple of days.

  • Bundy (shoulder) placed on DL in minors
    Dylan Bundy (shoulder) has been placed on the 7-day disabled list with Double-A Bowie.

    Advice: Bundy was scratched from Tuesday's scheduled start due to shoulder soreness, but the good news is that an MRI revealed no structural damage. The 22-year-old received anti-inflammatories and should be ready to resume throwing in a couple of weeks.

  • Red Sox recall LHP Ross from Triple-A
    Red Sox recalled LHP Robbie Ross from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: He'll replace the injured Daniel Nava (thumb) on the active roster. Ross has already had a couple of stints with the big club this season, posting a 5.14 ERA with nine strikeouts and six walks over 14 innings of work.

  • Eduardo Rodriguez called up for MLB debut
    Red Sox recalled LHP Eduardo Rodriguez from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Rodriguez will be making his major league debut when he starts Thursday against the Rangers. It's just being called a spot start, designed to give Boston's other starters an extra day of rest, but Joe Kelly's rotation spot is obviously vulnerable right now. Rodriguez, 22, had a 2.98 ERA and 44/7 K/BB ratio over his first 48 1/3 innings this season in Triple-A.

  • Red Sox option Hembree to Triple-A
    Red Sox optioned RHP Heath Hembree to Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: The move clears a spot for Thursday's starter, Eduardo Rodriguez, on the active roster. Hembree has appeared in two games with the Red Sox this season.

  • Almora cracks second home run
    Cubs prospect OF Albert Almora went 2-for-5 with a solo home run on Wednesday for Double-A Tennessee.

    Advice: The long ball was the second of the season for Almora, who’s batting .271/.312/.364 through 33 games for Tennessee. The 2012 first-round pick missed time early in the season with a concussion, and he was held out of action last week after a scary outfield collision. Beyond that, the 21-year-old outfielder has fared well as one of the younger everyday players in the Southern League, though it wouldn’t be surprising if he spent the entire 2015 season at the Double-A level.

  • Vogelbach (hamstring) to DL
    Cubs prospect 1B Dan Vogelbach has been placed on the 7-day disabled list at Double-A Tennessee.

    Advice: He injured his hamstring running the bases on Monday, so the move will be retroactive to May 26. Vogelbach, 22, is off to a great start this season at Tennessee, batting .320/.436/.497 with 17 extra-base hits (four home runs), 24 RBI and a 38/32 strikeout-to-walk ratio through 43 games. However, with Anthony Rizzo blocking his path to the major leagues, it’s still unclear how Vogelbach might fit into the Cubs’ long-term plans.

  • David Dahl suffered concussion, broken rib
    Rockies prospect David Dahl suffered a concussion and broken rib in a nasty on-field collision.

    Advice: Dahl might also have a ruptured spleen and will obviously be sidelined for an extended period. The 21-year-old outfielder was batting just .263/.290/.374 with three home runs through 43 games this season at Double-A New Britain, though he has tallied 11 stolen bases. Dahl was the 10th overall pick in the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft.

  • White Sox recall Daniel Webb from AAA
    White Sox recalled RHP Daniel Webb from Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Webb will serve as the 26th man for the White Sox in Thursday's doubleheader at Baltimore's Camden Yards. The 25-year-old right-hander did the same thing in April.

  • Cowgill (hand) headed to the disabled list
    Collin Cowgill (hand) is headed to the disabled list.

    Advice: Cowgill has been unable to hit since injuring his right hand during batting practice Sunday. There should be an exact diagnosis at some point Thursday. The 29-year-old outfielder is sporting a rough .180/.231/.295 slash line through 35 games this season for Anaheim.

  • Angels option Marc Krauss to AAA level
    Angels optioned 1B Marc Krauss to Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Krauss had a couple of timely hits in his two-week stay with the Halos, but he ultimately posted a disappointing .143/.211/.286 overall batting line. This move clears a roster spot for outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who was acquired from the Mets on Wednesday.

  • Grant Balfour, 37, leaning toward retirement
    Grant Balfour is said to be leaning toward retirement.

    Advice: Balfour opted out of his minor league contract with the Rays on Wednesday after allowing nine hits and four walks in 9 2/3 innings at Triple-A Durham. The 37-year-old right-hander is still hauling in $7 million this season from a deal signed with Tampa Bay two offseasons ago. If this is indeed it, Balfour, a native of Australia, will finish his major league career with a cool 3.49 ERA, 1.219 WHIP, and 84 saves.

  • Middlebrooks has 5 multi-hit games in past 8
    Will Middlebrooks went 2-for-4 with a double, home run and three RBI in Wednesday's 5-4 win against the Angels.

    Advice: Middlebrooks' two-run round-tripper off Garrett Richards in the fourth inning gave the Padres a 3-2 lead in an eventual 5-4 triumph. He continues to be a frustrating asset in NL-only leagues, though the third baseman has performed better of late. Middlebrooks has exactly two hits in five of his last eight games. Of course, in the other three he had zero. He's slashing .226/.260/.397 with six homers.

  • Brad Ziegler blows save in ninth
    Brad Ziegler took a blown save and a loss after giving up two runs -- one earned -- in the ninth Wednesday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Ziegler blew the save immediately, giving up a leadoff homer to Jason Heyward in the ninth. After that came a single, a groundout, an intentional walk, a walk and then what looked like an inning-ending double play ball. It turned out to be the game-winner for the Cardinals since a sliding Peter Bourjos hit catcher Jordan Pacheco's leg as he was making the home-to-first relay, sending the throw into right field. Ziegler should hang on to closing duties for now. It was his first blown save in three tries since he replaced Addison Reed.

  • Cowgill (hand) to meet with doctors Wednesday
    Collin Cowgill (hand) will meet with doctors Wednesday.

    Advice: Cowgill tried to swing a bat recently without much success. A trip to the disabled list could be in store. More should be known after his meeting with doctors on Wednesday.

  • MRI shows no damage in Bundy's shoulder
    An MRI taken Tuesday on Dylan Bundy's right shoulder showed no major structural damage.

    Advice: Good news. Bundy was given anti-inflammatory medication and should resume throwing in a couple of weeks. The young starter could still pitch for the Orioles at some point this season, though they may just opt to play it safe.

  • Red Sox to promote Eduardo Rodriguez
    Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports that the Red Sox are expected to promote pitching prospect Eduardo Rodriguez.

    Advice: He'll get the ball on Thursday in Texas in what is expected to be just a spot start, but Rodriguez could certainly wind up getting a long-term look at some point. Ranked prior to the season by Baseball America as the No. 59 prospect in baseball, Rodriguez boasts a 2.98 ERA and 44/7 K/BB ratio over 48 1/3 innings at Triple-A Pawucket this season. He just turned 22 in April.

  • Grant Balfour opts out of minors deal
    Rays released RHP Grant Balfour.

    Advice: Balfour exercised the opt-out deal in his contract that was agreed upon when he re-signed with the Rays at the beginning of this month. The veteran reliever struck out 11 while posting a 2.79 ERA over 9 2/3 innings for Triple-A Durham. He shouldn't have an issue catching on elsewhere quickly, though it remains to be seen whether he'll be able to land a major league contract.

  • Bundy prescribed rest, anti-inflammatories
    Orioles prospect right-hander Dylan Bundy (shoulder) has been prescribed rest and anti-inflammatories.

    Advice: Bundy was scratched from Tuesday's scheduled start with Double-A Bowie due to a sore shoulder, but this likely means that his shoulder exam didn't reveal anything alarming. The Orioles were optimistic that he was only dealing with mild tendinitis.

  • Cowgill (hand) serves as pinch-runner
    Collin Cowgill (hand) served as a pinch-runner Monday against the Padres and scored the winning run.

    Advice: Cowgill was scratched from Sunday's lineup after he felt pain in his top hand while swinging in batting practice. It's unclear when he'll be ready to return to the lineup, but that the Angels were willing to use him as a pinch-runner indicates that it might not be long.

  • Dylan Bundy nursing sore pitching shoulder
    Orioles pitching prospect Dylan Bundy has been scratched from Tuesday's start at Double-A Bowie due to a sore right shoulder.

    Advice: The club thinks it could just be tendinitis, but they'll know more when Bundy visits the doctor on Tuesday. The young righty has pitched well this season, posting a 3.68 ERA and 25/5 K/BB ratio over 22 innings.

  • X-Rays come bace negative for Cowgill (hand)
    Collin Cowgill was scratched from Sunday's game against the Red Sox after he hurt his top hand while swinging in batting practice pregame.

    Advice: He was sent out for precautionary X-rays which came back negative. Cowgill has also been battling back tightness in recent days, which many had thought was the reason for his late scratch from Sunday's lineup. He should be considered day-to-day and looks as though he'll avoid a trip to the disabled list.

  • Middlebrooks starting at shortstop Saturday
    Will Middlebrooks will make his first career start at shortstop Saturday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Middlebooks played one inning at shortstop against the Diamondbacks on May 10. With Middlebrooks occupying shortstop, Cory Spangenberg will draw the start at third base. Alexi Amarista, who has started at shortstop for 31 of San Diego's 44 games this season, will get the night off.

  • Heath Hembree called up from Pawtucket
    Red Sox recalled RHP Heath Hembree from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Hembree last pitched in the majors on April 26, giving up six runs in only 1 1/3 innings versus Baltimore. In 14 games for Pawtucket, Hembree is 0-2 with five saves and a 1.08 ERA. Robbie Ross was sent down to Triple-A to make room for Hembree.

  • Red Sox send Robbie Ross to Triple-A
    Red Sox optioned LHP Robbie Ross to Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: This will be his second demotion of the season. The left-hander has struggled all year, posting a 5.14 ERA in 14 games as a middle reliever. Heath Hembree will absorb Ross' roster spot.

  • Krauss doubles, sends Angels to a victory
    Mark Krauss helped the Angels take a late lead and an eventual win with a two-run double on Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: First baseman Albert Pujols had to leave the game after he was hit on the wrist by a pitch, so Krauss replaced him at first base. He turned a 3-2 deficit into a 4-3 lead when he hit a seventh-inning double to plate two runs off of Steve Delabar. Krauss had been 1-for-13 since his promotion on May 12.
