Sean Doolittle (shoulder) will face hitters on May 11.
He'll throw two more bullpen sessions prior to that. Doolittle's recovery from a slight tear in his rotator cuff is coming along nicely and he could conceivably rejoin the Athletics' bullpen later this month. He figures to be eased back into closing duties.
An MRI on Eric O'Flaherty's left shoulder showed only inflammation.
He'll be shut down until he regains all of the range of motion in his shoulder, but the good news is he's not dealing with any structural damage. O'Flaherty holds an 11.57 ERA and 2.29 WHIP over seven innings this season.
Mariners purchased the contract of LHP Joe Beimel from Triple-A Tacoma.
He was summoned after allowing just one baserunner and striking out five over 3 2/3 frames at Tacoma. Beimel will be used in a lefty specialist role.
Mariners recalled SS Chris Taylor from Triple-A Tacoma.
He's starting at shortstop on Monday, and with Brad Miller struggling at the plate and in the field, the two could share the position. Taylor has batted .313/.385/.475 with a couple homers and six steals at Tacoma this season.
Mariners placed OF Austin Jackson on the 15-day disabled list with a right ankle sprain.
Jackson suffered the injury when he landed on first base awkwardly during Sunday's game. It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined. Justin Ruggiano is in line for a bump in playing time while Jackson is on the shelf.
Travis Ishikawa (back) has resumed his rehab assignment with High-A San Jose.
Ishikawa had a setback with his back a couple weeks ago, but he's ready to roll again. Assuming he doesn't have any other bumps in the road, he should rejoin the Giants relatively soon.
FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that Justin Verlander's (triceps) next MRI is scheduled for Tuesday.
It's the third MRI he's had, as the Tigers want to see how much fluid and inflammation is remaining in his right triceps. The hope is that there's enough improvement to where Verlander can resume a throwing program. Even if that's the case, he's not expected to be back this month.
Casey Fien (shoulder) will resume a throwing program on Thursday.
Fien has been shut down for the last week with a posterior deltoid issue behind his right shoulder. It sounds like he'll have a shot to return when he's eligible or shortly after.
