Player Notes

  • Dylan Floro optioned to Triple-A
    Cubs optioned RHP Dylan Floro to Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: Floro has allowed six runs over 6 1/3 relief innings with the big club this season. Jeimer Candelario is replacing him on the roster. Today, 2:21 pm

  • Zach Putnam undergoes Tommy John surgery
    Zach Putnam underwent Tommy John surgery last week.

    Advice: Putnam had surgery last August to remove a bone fragment from his elbow and he landed back on the DL in April with more elbow issues. He'll miss 12-18 months after going under the knife this time, so Putnam won't be an option for the White Sox until late 2018, at the earliest. Today, 2:20 pm
    10-Day DL
  • Adam Warren (shoulder) playing catch
    Adam Warren (shoulder) has been playing catch.

    Advice: Warren's recovery from right shoulder inflammation has come slower than expected. He's hoping to return at some point during the Yankees' next homestand, which begins in a week. Today, 2:09 pm
    10-Day DL
  • Perkins (shoulder, biceps) could throw Tues.
    Glen Perkins (shoulder, biceps) could resume throwing as soon as Tuesday.

    Advice: Perkins received a cortisone shot after developing some biceps tendinitis. His timetable obviously remains up in the air. Today, 2:05 pm
    60-Day DL
  • Carson Smith (elbow, shoulder) throwing again
    Carson Smith (elbow, shoulder) has resumed a throwing program.

    Advice: Smith is working his way back from Tommy John surgery but had to be shut down recently because of a sore shoulder. He should be ready for a rehab assignment before long if he can avoid another setback, but he'll need a bunch of rehab appearances. Today, 1:45 pm
    60-Day DL
  • Nationals sign K-Rod to minor league deal
    Nationals signed RHP Francisco Rodriguez to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports first reported the Nats' pursuit of K-Rod earlier Monday and now says that the deal has been finalized. The former closer will go to the minors league for now but should be added to the big league bullpen. Rodriguez was released by the Tigers last week after posting an ugly 7.82 ERA over 28 appearances, but Washington is willing to give him a shot given their bullpen issues. Today, 1:33 pm
  • Indians option RHP Armstrong to Triple-A
    Indians optioned RHP Shawn Armstrong to Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: Armstrong has already been up and down a few times this season. The 26-year-old has compiled a 5.02 ERA and 14/6 K/BB ratio over 14 1/3 innings along the way. Today, 12:19 pm

  • Morris elects to become free agent
    Bryan Morris has elected to become a free agent.

    Advice: Morris cleared waivers after being designated for assignment on Friday. The 30-year-old has struggled with a 6.43 ERA and 15/11 K/BB ratio over 21 innings this season and will attempt to latch on elsewhere. Today, 11:46 am
    Not Active
  • Phillies option RHP Ramos to Triple-A
    Phillies optioned RHP Edubray Ramos to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Ramos, 24, has struggled with his control this season while posting a 5.52 ERA and 38/22 K/BB ratio over 31 innings. The Phillies still have high hopes for him in the long-term and will try to get him back on track in the minors. Today, 10:44 am

  • Mixed effort for Mendez
    Rangers prospect Yohander Mendez gave up three runs in five innings of work on Sunday for Double-A Frisco.

    Advice: Mendez also walked four, but he was able to strike out seven. The left-hander is no longer the consensus top pitching prospect in the system, but he does have two pitches that can miss bats in a fastball that touches 95 and a quality change. He also has shown plus command before, but that hasn't been apparent in 2017. He should be a member of someone's rotation by this point in 2018. Today, 10:28 am
    Not Active
  • White Sox recall Minaya from Triple-A
    White Sox recalled RHP Juan Minaya from Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: This will be his second stint in the majors this season. Minaya will try to do better than the 8.10 ERA he had over his previous seven appearances. Today, 10:07 am
  • White Sox option RHP Infante to Triple-A
    White Sox optioned RHP Gregory Infante to Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Juan Minaya will replace him in Chicago's bullpen. Infante owns a 4.79 ERA and 18/10 K/BB ratio over 20 2/3 innings this season. Today, 10:05 am
    Not Active
  • Yanks recall RHP Herrera from Double-A
    Yankees recalled RHP Ronald Herrera from Double-A Trenton.

    Advice: Herrera was up with the big club for one game earlier this month and allowed two runs over two innings of work. He'll hope to stick around a bit longer this time around. Today, 9:45 am
  • Yanks option LHP Webb to Triple-A
    Yankees optioned LHP Tyler Webb to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: Webb, 26, was called up last week and made two scoreless appearances. The southpaw should get another chance later this summer. Today, 9:36 am

  • Reds option RHP Bonilla to Triple-A
    Reds optioned RHP Lisalverto Bonilla to Triple-A Louisville.

    Advice: The move clears a spot for Brandon Finnegan's return from the disabled list. The 27-year-old has struggled with a 7.59 ERA over four starts and four relief appearances with the big club this season. Today, 8:13 am

  • Randall Delgado blanks Phillies over five IP
    Randall Delgado fired off five scoreless innings while taking a no-decision in Sunday's 11-inning win over the Phillies.

    Advice: Delgado scattered four hits while striking out four and walking one. He finished his afternoon having thrown 75 pitches (43 strikes). The 27-year-old right-hander has gotten the job done this season, pitching to a 3.18 ERA and 1.11 WHIP over 22 appearances (five starts). Yesterday, 5:05 pm
  • Mike Montgomery goes six in tough-luck loss
    Mike Montgomery yielded four hits and three unearned runs over six innings Sunday in the Cubs’ loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: All three runs and three of the Marlins’ four hits off Montgomery came in the first inning. That inning was keyed by a costly throwing error by shortstop Addison Russell. Montgomery was terrific once he escaped the first and retired 10 straight hitters to end his outing. The left-hander has done a nice job since moving to the starting rotation, producing a stellar 1.06 ERA over his last three appearances. He’ll get the ball again Friday at Cincinnati. Yesterday, 4:31 pm
  • Nick Martinez good enough in win over NYY
    Nick Martinez logged his third win of the season Sunday against the Yankees, allowing six hits, four runs and one walk over five innings of work.

    Advice: He notched three strikeouts over his 88 pitches. Martinez was cruising until the fifth inning when he allowed all four of his runs including three on a two-out homer by Gary Sanchez. The Yankees narrowed the gap to 7-6 at one point but the bullpen held on to preserve for the victory. Martinez hasn’t been anything special for Texas, contributing an underwhelming 4.55 ERA over 12 outings (11 starts) this year. He’s in line to start next Saturday against the White Sox. Yesterday, 3:02 pm
  • Petit goes two scoreless for the save
    Yusmeiro Petit hurled two shutout frames for his first save Sunday in the Angels’ 4-2 win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: He struck out one while throwing 19 of his 25 pitches for strikes. His only blemish was a one-out single to Andrew Benintendi in the ninth inning. The Angels have gone with a closer by committee in Bud Norris’ absence with Petit, Blake Parker and David Hernandez all handling save chances. We’re guessing Norris will maintain his ninth-inning role when he returns, which could happen later this week. Yesterday, 2:02 pm
  • Anibal Sanchez sharp in Saturday no-decision
    Anibal Sanchez allowed two runs - one earned - and two hits with no walks and four strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision in San Diego on Saturday.

    Advice: Sanchez has posted a 2.45 ERA over 11 innings in two outings since being summoned from Triple-A Toledo on June 18. He has re-emerged as a useful fantasy option if you need help in the back end of your rotation in deeper AL play. His next start is scheduled for Friday against the Indians at Comerica Park. Yesterday, 12:26 am
