Daniel Wright will make a spot start for the Angels on Thursday against the Rays.

Wright is going to fill in for Alex Meyer, who landed on the disabled list Wednesday with a back injury. Wright owns a 5.54 ERA and 1.54 WHIP in three appearances -- one start -- this season at the major league level. He's not an appealing fantasy streamer.

Blue Jays placed OF Anthony Alford on the 10-day disabled list with a left hamate fracture.

That's an injury that usually requires 4-6 weeks of rest and rehab, sometimes much longer. Alford was just promoted to Toronto last Friday and collected his first major league hit -- a double -- on Tuesday night at Miller Park. Unfortunately for the last-place Blue Jays, the 22-year-old top outfield prospect will rack up service time while he is on the MLB disabled list.

Angels recalled RHP Brooks Pounders from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Pounders has allowed four earned runs in 3 2/3 innings this season at the major league level. He will work in a low-leverage relief role for Anaheim.
May 24 - 11:15 AM

Angels placed RHP Alex Meyer on the 10-day disabled list with a back injury.

Meyer felt some tightness in his back after allowing four runs over four innings Saturday in a loss to the Mets, and that tightness returned in his between-starts bullpen session on Tuesday. Daniel Wright will take his spot in the rotation Thursday against the Rays. Meyer has no timetable yet, but this doesn't sound like a major injury.
May 24 - 11:12 AM

Blue Jays recalled OF Dwight Smith Jr. from Triple-A Buffalo.

Smith went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts during a short stay with the Jays last week. The 24-year-old outfielder probably won't play regularly enough to hold fantasy relevance.
May 24 - 11:06 AM

Joe Mauer is getting the day off Wednesday.

Kennys Vargas will start at first base and bat fifth in the matinee game against the Orioles. Mauer went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts on Tuesday and is slashing just .266/.338/.367 in 38 total games this season.
May 24 - 10:32 AM

Ryan Braun is out of the Brewers' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Blue Jays.

Braun has gone 0-for-8 since returning May 21 from his left calf strain. Hernan Perez will start in left field and bat third on Wednesday versus Blue Jays right-hander Marcus Stroman.
May 24 - 9:53 AM

Joc Pederson was diagnosed with a neck strain following Tuesday night's outfield collision with Yasiel Puig.

Pederson also suffered some minor cuts on his forehead when he stumbled head-first into the right-center field wall, but he cleared MLB's concussion protocol and is expected to avoid the disabled list. That's excellent news given the violence of the collision. Pederson and Puig were both laughing in the clubhouse after the Dodgers' 13th-inning walkoff win over the Cardinals.
