Phil Hughes has been moved to the bullpen.

His rough start Saturday against the Mariners was apparently the final straw. Hughes gave up four earned runs on nine hits and three walks in 4 2/3 innings versus Seattle. Kyle Gibson (shoulder) will come off the disabled list Thursday and start against the Rays.
May 30 - 1:22 PM

Mariners RHP prospect Nick Neidert let up just one hit over five scoreless frames Sunday in a no-decision for Low-A Clinton.

He retired 12 hitters in a row after allowing a leadoff double in the first inning. Neidert struck out three and walked one in his second start of 2016, cutting his ERA from 1.80 to 0.90 in the process. The 2015 second-round pick spent the early part of the season in extended spring training. Opponents have hit just .143 against Neidert in 35 at-bats this year.

Evan Gattis is not in the Astros' starting lineup on Monday afternoon against the Diamondbacks.

The game is being played at Chase Field under National League rules, so Gattis can't DH. Tyler White is starting at catcher and Jason Castro will be behind the plate.
May 30 - 1:16 PM

Stephen Piscotty has been scratched from the Cardinals' lineup Monday due to food poisoning.

He was supposed to start in right field and bat cleanup in the series opener against Brewers right-hander Junior Guerra. Brandon Moss is now starting in right and batting fifth, with Matt Adams at cleanup.
May 30 - 1:06 PM

Nolan Arenado is getting the day off Monday.

Daniel Descalso will start at third base and bat seventh in the afternoon game against Reds right-hander Dan Straily. Arenado went 0-for-3 on Sunday versus the Giants but still managed to collect his 39th RBI.
May 30 - 12:45 PM

T.J. McFarland (knee) has been activated from the disabled list at Triple-A Norfolk.

McFarland could quickly move to the major league level now that his left knee is healed. The right-hander had a 4.73 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in 13 1/3 innings of relief earlier this season for the Orioles.

Will Smith (knee) is expected to be activated Thursday.

Smith joined back up with the Brewers on Monday in Milwaukee after making three minor league rehab appearances between High-A Brevard County and Double-A Biloxi. He'll throw a simulated game Monday before taking a couple days of rest. The lefty reliever has been on the disabled list since the end of spring training with a torn LCL in his right knee.
May 30 - 12:20 PM

Sergio Romo (elbow) won't be activated from the disabled list before Thursday.

Romo experienced some fatigue after making back-to-back rehab appearances last week at Triple-A Sacramento. But it doesn't sound like a major setback, and Romo is actually slated to pitch this Monday and Tuesday at High-A San Jose before possibly returning to the Giants on Thursday. The setup man has been on the disabled list since April 14 with a flexor muscle strain in his right arm.
