Blue Jays pitching coach Pete Walker said J.A. Happ (elbow) was "very good" in his side session on Sunday.

Happ gave up three runs on seven hits over three innings last Thursday in a rehab start with High-A Dunedin, but he could return as soon as Tuesday against the Reds. The southpaw could be on a limited pitch count for his return. Happ has been out since mid-April with left elbow inflammation.

Nelson Cruz will start in right field Monday against the Rockies.

Cruz will start in the outfield with the DH unavailable under National League rules. Ben Gamel will start in left field while Guillermo Heredia will take a seat.

Dodgers transferred RHP Brock Stewart from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot for Brandon Morrow on the 40-man roster. Stewart began the year on the disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis and only recently began a minor league rehab assignment. The move shouldn't impact his timetable.
May 29 - 12:06 PM

Dodgers purchased the contract of RHP Brandon Morrow from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

He'll take the place of the injured Alex Wood (SC joint inflammation) on the active roster. Morrow has posted a 5.71 ERA over 17 relief appearances in Triple-A this year, but he has allowed just two runs over 9 1/3 innings of work this month. Morrow has mostly pitched as a starter in the majors, but he'll pitch in relief with the Dodgers.

Adam Jones (ankle, hip) has been scratched from Monday's lineup against the Yankees.

Jones was in the original lineup, but he apparently didn't feel 100 percent during his morning workout. Consider him day-to-day. Joey Rickard will cover center field duties again.
May 29 - 12:02 PM

Dodgers placed LHP Alex Wood on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 28, with left SC joint inflammation.

That's a bummer. Wood has been told that he can pitch through the issue, so it doesn't sound overly serious, but the Dodgers don't want to take any chances. There's no clear timetable for his return at the moment. Hyun-Jin Ryu is likely to take his place in the rotation for now.
May 29 - 11:58 AM

Twins purchased the contract of LHP Jason Wheeler from Triple-A Rochester.

Wheeler, 26, has compiled a 4.50 ERA and 37/10 K/BB ratio in 44 innings over seven starts and one relief appearance in Triple-A this year. He'll be making his major league debut when he gets into a game.
May 29 - 11:56 AM

Twins recalled RHP Drew Rucinski from Triple-A Rochester.

This confirms a report from Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Rucinski appeared in one game with the Twins earlier this month and has a 2.95 ERA and 21/3 K/BB ratio over 18 1/3 innings in Triple-A this year. He'll pitch in middle relief.
