Blue Jays claimed RHP Thad Weber off waivers from the Padres, optioned him to Triple-A Buffalo.
Alex Anthopoulos is at it again. Weber was designated for assignment by the Padres on Friday, but it didn't take him long to find a new home. He'll represent depth in the minors.
Carlos Ruiz left Sunday's game against the Reds with a right hamstring strain.
Ruiz hurt himself while running the bases. There's no word yet on the severity of the injury, but a trip to the disabled list would seem to be a distinct possibility. Humberto Quintero would take Ruiz's spot on the roster if a move needs to be made.
Angels released INF Bill Hall.
It's the second time they've released him in the last two months, as they cut Hall loose at the end of spring training before re-signing him a couple weeks later. The veteran utility player was batting just .164/.282/.233 over 21 games.
Carlos Ruiz left Sunday's game with an apparent leg injury.
Ruiz slowed up and appeared to grab at his groin as he went from second to third base in the second inning. The Phillies should provide an update on his status shortly. Erik Kratz took his place behind the plate.
ESPN's Buster Olney reports that Jurickson Profar is in Arlington and might be recalled.
The club has him around as insurance in case a roster move needs to be made, likely involving Ian Kinsler (ribs). Profar got off to a slow start at Triple-A Round Rock this season, but he has come alive lately and is batting .278/.370/.438 with four homers and six steals overall. If Kinsler heads to the DL, Profar would play every day.
Ian Desmond is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.
It's a planned day off for Desmond. Danny Espinosa is covering shortstop Sunday, while Steve Lombardozzi is at second.
Bryce Harper (knee) is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.
Harper is still feeling banged up from last week's collision with the wall, and his knee appears to be in the worse shape of his various aches and pains. He'll try to return to the lineup on Monday.
Angels sent RHP Barry Enright outright to Triple-A Salt Lake.
Enright was designated for assignment last week but has cleared waivers and will stick around for depth purposes.
