Red Sox transferred RHP Anthony Varvaro from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Varvaro underwent season-ending elbow surgery on Tuesday. The right-hander posted an impressive 2.63 ERA, 1.079 WHIP, and 50/13 K/BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings last year for the Braves, but he had a mess of a 2015 campaign.

Red Sox acquired OF Carlos Peguero from the Rangers for cash considerations.

Peguero was designated for assignment by Texas one week ago after batting .186/.310/.414 in 84 plate appearances. The 28-year-old outfielder is a .194/.262/.387 career hitter at the major league level.

Johnny Giavotella is not in the Angels' lineup Wednesday.

Giavotella has cooled off considerably after a hot first month and will take a seat against Padres right-hander Andrew Cashner. Grant Green is at second base.

Scott Kazmir left his start Wednesday against the Tigers after experiencing left shoulder tightness.

He worked three hitless innings before giving way to reliever Dan Otero. Kazmir had struggled in his last handful of starts, so it's safe to wonder whether this shoulder issue has been a lingering thing. The 31-year-old southpaw has a long, well-chronicled history of arm injuries. He was supposed to be trade bait this season for the struggling Athletics.

An MRI taken Tuesday on Dylan Bundy's right shoulder showed no major structural damage.

Good news. Bundy was given anti-inflammatory medication and should resume throwing in a couple of weeks. The young starter could still pitch for the Orioles at some point this season, though they may just opt to play it safe.
May 27 - 5:06 PM

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Wednesday that Matt Adams could need surgery on his right quad.

Adams injured the quad Tuesday while legging out a double and the Cardinals are still determining whether it's a Grade 2 or Grade 3 strain. Grade 3 is the most severe and would almost certainly require a surgical procedure. Either way, Adams is looking at a lengthy absence. Mark Reynolds will serve as the Cardinals' primary first baseman.
May 27 - 5:03 PM

Braves acquired 3B Juan Uribe and RHP Chris Withrow from the Dodgers for INF Alberto Callaspo, LHP Eric Stults, LHP Ian Thomas, and RHP Juan Jaime.

Uribe's decline has accelerated in his age-36 season and he's doubtful to take on significant fantasy relevance with a change of scenery. The veteran had hit just .247/.287/.309 with one home run and six RBI in 29 games for the Dodgers. Getting him out of Los Angeles allows Alex Guerrero to become an everyday player.

Braves acquired RHP Chris Withrow and 3B Juan Uribe from the Dodgers for INF Alberto Callaspo, LHP Eric Stults, LHP Ian Thomas, and RHP Juan Jaime.

Withrow underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last June and probably won't become an option for the Braves' bullpen until after the All-Star break. The 26-year-old right-hander had posted a promising 2.73 ERA, 1.089 WHIP, and 71 strikeouts in 56 career major league innings before tearing his right ulnar collateral ligament. He could be a nice find for Atlanta if he makes a full recovery.
