Rays purchased the contract of RHP Ryan Garton from Triple-A Durham.

Garton was rocking a 2.38 ERA and 29/6 K/BB ratio in 22 2/3 innings this season at the Triple-A level. The 26-year-old right-hander could do well in a middle relief role. He will be making his major league debut.

Christian Yelich (back) remains out of the Marlins' starting lineup on Wednesday in Tampa Bay.

Yelich has now missed four straight games with what's being called "back spasms." Cole Gillespie will start in left field and bat eighth against Matt Andriese.

Rockies 3B prospect Josh Fuentes delivered a career-high five hits Tuesday in a win for Low-A Asheville.

He plated four runs in a convincing 17-7 victory over Greenville. The 23-year-old opened the year in a 1-for-19 rut but has hit .521 over his last 21 games to raise his average from .053 to .411. Despite appearing in only 27 games, Fuentes is tied for third in the South Atlantic League with 14 doubles. A whopping 18 of Fuentes' 37 hits this year have gone for extra bases.

Giancarlo Stanton is not in the Marlins' lineup Wednesday.

Ichiro Suzuki will play right field and bat leadoff versus Rays right-hander Matt Andriese. Stanton hit his 12th home run of the season on Tuesday night, but he had been in a minor slump since an outfield collision with Marcell Ozuna on May 15 in Washington, D.C. He'll take a day of mental and physical rest.
May 25 - 2:39 PM

Denard Span is getting a normal day of rest Wednesday.

He was in the original lineup, but Giants manager Bruce Bochy ultimately elected to give the 32-year-old outfielder a day off for the matinee game versus the Padres. Span should be fine to return to action for Friday's series opener at Coors Field. Gregor Blanco is starting in center field Wednesday and Kelby Tomlinson is playing left.

Astros IF prospect Matt Duffy hammered two home runs Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Fresno.

He plated five of Fresno's 14 runs as the Grizzlies rolled to a 14-3 win over Oklahoma City. After going his first 28 games without a homer, the 27-year-old has now clocked four long balls over his last eight contests. Duffy earned a late-season promotion last year by hitting .294 with 20 HR and 104 RBI in 127 games for Fresno. He hasn't been nearly as good this year, batting just .217 with 51 strikeouts in 129 at-bats. He did make a brief cameo in Houston earlier this season, going hitless in three at-bats.

Blue Jays optioned SHP Pat Venditte to Triple-A Buffalo.

The switch-pitcher has a 4.05 ERA in 6 2/3 innings this season with Toronto and a 4.33 ERA for his career. He'll probably be up and down all season for the Jays.
May 25 - 2:31 PM

Blue Jays activated 2B Devon Travis from the 15-day disabled list.

Travis will make his triumphant return on Wednesday night against the Yankees. It will be his first game since last July 28, when he hit the disabled list for a second time with a left shoulder injury. The injury would eventually require season-ending surgery. Travis batted .304/.361/.498 with eight homers and three steals in 62 games last year for Toronto and he swung the bat well on his lengthy minor league rehab assignment. The 25-year-old second baseman is a must-own.
