Brett Myers (elbow) will make at least one more rehab start.
Myers' velocity was down on Wednesday in his second rehab outing with Double-A Akron, and he walked four while allowing three runs over 4 1/3 frames. Assuming his velocity comes back up the next time out, he could rejoin the Indians' rotation after that.
Christian Garcia (forearm) is scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment this weekend with Double-A Harrisburg.
Garcia has been shut down since the early part of spring training with a partial tendon tear in his right forearm, but he's ready to return to game action. The Nationals were planning to stretch him out as a starter prior to the injury, but he'll pitch in relief for the time being.
Taylor Teagarden (thumb) is slated to start catching live batting practice and hitting off coaches Thursday in Sarasota, Florida.
Teagarden has been sidelined since April 27 with a dislocated left thumb. The Orioles may want him to go out on a brief minor league assignment, but he appears on track to return early next month.
Wilson Betemit (knee) will begin light baseball activities next week.
Betemit, who suffered a right PCL tear during spring training, received clearance after visiting the team doctor in Baltimore. The 31-year-old still has a way to go before returning to game action, but he's finally making some progress.
Mike Puma of the New York Post was told by a high-ranking team official that prospect right-hander Zack Wheeler is expected make 2-3 more starts with Triple-A Las Vegas before joining the Mets.
That would place his major league debut somewhere around June 6 or 11, which would leave the Mets safe from any concerns about eventual Super Two status. Wheeler returned to action Wednesday after a recent collarbone issue and allowed three runs in five innings. The 22-year-old has a 3.99 ERA and 49/20 K/BB ratio in 48 1/3 innings across eight starts this season. He's worth stashing in deeper mixed leagues at this point.
Oswaldo Arcia is not in Thursday's lineup against the Tigers.
This will actually be his fourth straight game on the bench, but the good news is that he's completely healthy. Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said he's going with Ryan Doumit out of the DH spot Thursday because he's 4-for-10 lifetime against starter Rick Porcello. Arcia is expected to return to the lineup Friday.
Red Sox signed LHP Rafael Perez to a minor league contract.
Perez is still building strength following shoulder surgery, so Ian Browne of MLB.com hears that he will likely report to Double-A Portland and work his way up from there. The 31-year-old southpaw owns a 3.64 ERA over 338 relief appearances in the majors, so he's a worthwhile flier for Boston.
Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers said Thursday that Adam Eaton will "probably" get a second opinion on his left elbow from Dr. James Andrews in the coming days.
Eaton was recently pulled off his minor league rehab assignment due to renewed discomfort in his elbow. Towers said an MRI showed fluid around his ulnar collateral ligament, but no new damage was found. As of now, he's expected to rest for 2-3 weeks before restarting his rehab program, but he'll get Andrews' opinion just to be on the safe side.
