Angels acquired RHP David Hernandez from the Braves for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM reports that the Nationals have been in touch with several teams about their closers.
Bowden writes that the Nationals believe Koda Glover can be their long-term answer at closer, but they aren't sure he's ready right now. Not surprisingly, Bowden mentions White Sox closer David Robertson and Rays closer Alex Colome among the possible trade options, but he adds that they haven't been able to meet either team's lofty asking prices. We expect to hear more about this situation as the season moves along.
Phillies placed RHP Aaron Nola on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 21, with a lower back strain.
It's unclear how long Nola will be sidelined. Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer writes that Nick Pivetta is likely to fill in Wednesday against the Marlins. Nola has posted a 4.50 ERA and 15/6 K/BB ratio in 16 innings through his first three starts this season.
Josh Rutledge (hamstring) has shifted his minor league rehab assignment to Double-A Portland.
Rutledge was with Triple-A Pawtucket, but they are off on Monday. Assuming all goes well, he could be ready to join the Red Sox in the next day or two. The 28-year-old began the year on the disabled list with a left hamstring strain.
Lucas Duda (elbow) believes he'll be ready to return from the disabled list when he's first eligible.
Duda landed on the disabled last week with a hyperextended left elbow. He still needs to get the range of motion in his elbow back, but he's making progress. Jay Bruce has been filling in at first base in recent days.
Blue Jays transferred OF Dalton Pompey from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.
The move was made over the weekend and cleared a spot for Leonel Campos on the 40-man roster. Pompey suffered a concussion on a slide during the recent World Baseball Classic and still isn't back to 100 percent. He'll now be eligible to return in June.
J.P. Howell (shoulder) struck out three in a scoreless frame Sunday on his minor league rehab assignment with High-A Dunedin.
Howell, who landed on the disabled list earlier this month with left shoulder soreness, has now thrown a pair of scoreless outings on his rehab stint. The southpaw appears on the verge of rejoining the Jays' bullpen.
Mets manager Terry Collins said after Sunday's game that Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) told him he'll be ready for Tuesday.
Cespedes sat out the entire weekend series against the Nationals due to a sore left hamstring, but he was available as a pinch-hitter for Sunday's game and was in the on-deck circle before the final out. It's not a sure thing he'll be ready for Tuesday, as the Mets will have him go through a pre-game workout before making a final decision. Still, he's sorely missed at the moment, as the Mets have dropped eight out of their last nine.
