Matt Moore (elbow) allowed two runs on five hits over two innings in an extended spring training game on Saturday.

It was the first live game action for the left-hander since undergoing Tommy John surgery. He threw 25 of his 36 pitches for strikes in the outing. The next step should be to begin a minor league rehab assignment this week, with an eye on returning to the Rays rotation at some point in mid-June.

Johnny Cueto's scheduled start on Sunday has been pushed back.

It's expected that Cueto will pitch on Monday instead, with Jason Marquis getting booted out of the rotation. Raisel Iglesias will start in Cueto's place against the Indians on Sunday.

Raisel Iglesias will start for the Reds on Sunday against the Indians in Cleveland.

While nothing has been confirmed, it sounds as though the Reds are shuffling their rotation and that Iglesias may remain in this spot long term. The 25-year-old owns a 3.94 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 11/6 K/BB ratio over his 16 innings with the Reds.

Brian McCann is not in the Yankees starting lineup on Saturday.

It's nothing more than a routine day of rest for the veteran backstop being a day game after a night game. John Ryan Murphy will get the start behind the plate and will hit eighth against Nick Martinez and the Rangers.
May 23 - 10:53 AM

Leonys Martin is not in the Rangers starting lineup on Saturday.

It appears as though the Rangers will continue to ride the hot hand, with Delino DeShields again starting in center field and hitting leadoff for the Rangers against opposing southpaw C.C. Sabathia. Look for Martin to return to the lineup on Sunday.
May 23 - 10:49 AM

Brad Miller is not in the Mariners starting lineup on Saturday against the Blue Jays.

He'll take a seat against opposing southpaw Mark Buehrle, with Chris Taylor starting at shortstop and hitting ninth for the M's. Look for Miller to be back in there for Sunday's series finale.
May 23 - 10:43 AM

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Orioles have agreed to a minor league contract with LHP Ariel Miranda.

The deal with the 25-year-old Cuban left-hander is contingent on him passing a physical. Miranda last pitched in Cuba's Serie Nacional in 2013, posting a 3.24 ERA, 9.3 K/9 and 3.2 BB/9 in 13 starts.
May 23 - 10:38 AM

Orioles optioned RHP Tyler Wilson to Triple-A Norfolk.

He was sent out to open a spot in the bullpen for Oliver Drake. The 25-year-old posted a 4.50 ERA, 2.50 WHIP and 1/0 K/BB ratio in his two innings with the big league club. He should get another opportunity with the Orioles at some point during the season.
