Nick Burdi (elbow) struck out the side for High-A Bradenton on Monday in his first appearance since last May's Tommy John surgery.

Burdi needed just 13 pitches, throwing 10 of them for strikes. There's no word on what the velocity was for Burdi, who touched triple digits before the operation. The Pirates are hoping that he can make an impact sometime after the All-Star break.

Rays activated INF Christian Arroyo from the 10-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Durham.

Arroyo returned to action Sunday for Durham after missing a couple days with a sore left hand and the Rays have decided to leave him in the minors for a while. The 23-year-old has hit only .181/.224/.278 in 19 games for Durham this season.

Braves signed RHP Fernando Salas to a minor league contract.

Salas was released by the Diamondbacks last week after posting a 4.50 ERA over 41 appearances for them. He'll give the Braves some veteran relief depth on the farm.
Jul 16 - 6:28 PM

Braves signed OF Lane Adams to a minor league contract.

Adams signed with the Cubs back in May after the Braves removed him from their 40-man roster, but he now finds himself back in the Atlanta organization. The 28-year-old is 4-for-17 at the plate in the majors this season and has hit just .136/.265/.185 this year at the Triple-A level.

Sean Doolittle (toe) threw on flat ground again Monday.

It's unclear when Doolittle might resume throwing off a mound, but he said Sunday that he expects his stay on the disabled list to be a short one. The closer is eligible for activation at the start of the second half and he would seem to have a shot to be ready at that time.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Angels "have no interest" in trading Tyler Skaggs or Andrew Heaney.

The two left-handers have been floated as possible trade targets for contenders, but the Angels plan on competing in 2019 and want to hang on to them. Skaggs is under team control through 2020 and Heaney is under team control through 2021. Rosenthal did reiterate a previous report about the Halos drawing interest in relievers Blake Parker, Jose Alvarez, Cam Bedrosian and Justin Anderson but "but will want good returns to give up control."
Jul 16 - 5:27 PM

Gleyber Torres (hip) hopes to be activated from the disabled list on July 23.

Torres ran the bases on Monday and said afterward that "I think I’m ready right now." However, Torres will first have a short rehab assignment with High-A Tampa over the weekend. He'll then rejoin the Yankees in a week for the start of their series against the Rays, assuming all goes well. Torres has been sidelined for nearly two weeks with a right hip strain.

Yohander Mendez was been promoted from High-A Down East to Double-A Frisco.

Mendez got optioned all the way down to High-A ball last month after violating team rules at the major league level. The 23-year-old left-hander posted a 3.48 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 27/6 K/BB ratio in 31 innings (five starts) with the Down East Wood Ducks. He holds a 14.73 ERA in 3 2/3 innings this season in the bigs.
