Mike Adams (back) threw a bullpen session Wednesday.
Adams landed on the disabled list earlier this week with a back strain, but reported feeling good and will throw again on Friday. The veteran right-hander thinks he could be ready to return Sunday, but the Phillies may give him some more time.
Cardinals purchased the contract of LHP Tyler Lyons from Triple-A Memphis.
Lyons will take Jaime Garcia's place in the rotation and make the start Wednesday against the Padres. The 25-year-old southpaw owns a 4.47 ERA and 1.40 WHIP over eight starts this season in Triple-A and is only a band-aid until Jake Westbrook (elbow) is ready to return. He's unlikely to be fantasy relevant.
Cardinals placed RHP Fernando Salas on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 21, with right shoulder irritation.
The severity of the injury isn't yet known, but the move clears a spot for Wednesday's starter, Tyler Lyons. Rookie right-hander Carlos Martinez could see an increased role during Salas' absence.
Cubs recalled RHP Rafael Dolis from Triple-A Iowa.
He'll take the roster spot of right-hander Shawn Camp, who was placed on the disabled list with a sprained toe. Dolis has allowed two runs in 1 2/3 innings over two appearances with the Cubs this season and will pitch in middle relief.
Paul Maholm allowed just an unearned run over 7 1/3 innings in defeating the Twins on Wednesday.
Unfortunately, Maholm's two bad starts this year were really bad, because he's given up just nine earned runs in the other eight. This is the fourth time he's gone without allowing a single earned run. Overall, he's 6-4 with a 3.38 ERA.
Cubs placed RHP Shawn Camp on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right big toe.
Rafael Dolis has been called up to replace him in the bullpen. Camp owns an ugly 7.56 ERA and 12/6 K/BB ratio across 16 2/3 innings of work this season.
Making his first start in eight days, Evan Gattis hit his first grand slam Wednesday against the Twins.
Gattis had two homers off the bench since his previous start on May 14. He has 10 homers in just 122 at-bats on the season. It's hard for the Braves to find playing time for him with Brian McCann and Jason Heyward back, but they have to do a better job than this of mixing him in.
B.J. Upton hit his first homer since April 23 off the Twins' Vance Worley on Wednesday.
It gave him just his second RBI in May. Facing Twins pitching got B.J. going just a little; he's 3-for-7 the last two days. It's just the second time in a month that he's had three hits in a series.
