Pirates recalled INF Gift Ngoepe from Triple-A Indianapolis.
Ngoepe is the first African-born player to make it to the major league level. The 27-year-old was batting just .241/.308/.379 in 66 plate appearances this season at Triple-A and holds no fantasy relevance.
Pirates optioned RHP Dovydas Neverauskas to Triple-A Indianapolis.
Neverauskas became the first native of Lithuania to appear in a major league game on Monday night against the Cubs, but he yielded a run on two hits in two innings of work. The 24-year-old right-hander should get another shot soon.
George Springer (hamstring) is out again Wednesday versus the Indians.
Springer subbed into Tuesday night's game after Teoscar Hernandez suffered a major knee injury, but the Astros don't want to push it with his tight left hamstring. Josh Reddick is in center field and batting leadoff on Wednesday.
Jose Altuve (head) is out of the Astros' starting lineup on Wednesday night.
Altuve took a blow to the head Tuesday when he collided with teammate Teoscar Hernandez in shallow right field, but the star second baseman was quickly cleared of a concussion. He'll take a day of rest anyway Wednesday versus the Indians, with Marwin Gonzalez covering second base.
Kyle Seager (hip) remains out of the Mariners' starting lineup on Wednesday.
Seager told reporters Tuesday that his hip feels fine and he tried to talk his way into the starting lineup Wednesday night, but manager Scott Servais will play it safe with his star third baseman. Taylor Motter is at the hot corner and batting fifth Wednesday versus the Tigers.
Mariners recalled OF Ben Gamel from Triple-A Tacoma.
Gamel was off to a decent start this season at Triple-A and will give the Mariners much-needed outfield depth in the absence of Mitch Haniger, who landed on the disabled list Wednesday with a right oblique strain.
Mariners recalled LHP Dillon Overton from Triple-A Tacoma.
Seattle has added three fresh bullpen arms Wednesday after Tuesday night's 19-9 drubbing at the hands of the Tigers. Overton will presumably work in long relief.
Mariners purchased the contract of RHP Casey Fien from to Triple-A Tacoma.
Fien was outrighted off the Mariners' 40-man roster on April 12 after allowing seven earned runs over 5 2/3 innings of relief, but he is suddenly needed again.
